My teammates are telling me that I can still win the MVP, but I told them I’m not playing to be the MVP. I don’t want to play to be the MVP this season. I couldn’t care less. I’m not playing for MVP stats. I’m just playing to win. Give the MVP to anyone else,” he said.“One thing that they’ll never take away is the win, the love of the game that I bring to my teammates, coaches, and the staff. I really don’t care if they hate San Beda or whatever. That’s fine. But they’ll never take the will for me to win another championship this year and to give back to San Beda.” Photo by Tristan Tamayo/ INQUIRER.netRobert Bolick was left dumbfounded when he was ejected late in San Beda’s 72-58 win over College of St. Benilde on Tuesday.Bolick was nearing a triple-double with 14 points, 11 assists, and seven rebounds before an incident involving him and Blazers guard Carlo Young triggered a scuffle.ADVERTISEMENT San Beda coach livid over disqualifying foul on Bolick Filipinos turn Taal Volcano ash, plastic trash into bricks PLAY LIST 01:40Filipinos turn Taal Volcano ash, plastic trash into bricks01:32Taal Volcano watch: Island fissures steaming, lake water receding02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite Marcosian mode: Duterte threatens to arrest water execs ‘one night’ Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

He’s Visayan and that’s how we play. He took me down, but I really don’t care. It’s part of the game. They’re frustrated because we’re up, but it happens to all,” Bolick said. “They want to win so bad, we want to win so bad. But they say I had a closed fist? Just watch the video. I know I did not do that. They think I did that so I’ll accept whatever consequences are.”The 21-year-old argued that he feels he didn’t do anything to merit an ejection in the tussle, saying that after he was taken down, all he was trying to do is to stand up and shoot the ensuing free throws — which makes all the judgment more baffling in Bolick’s view.The 21-year-old Bolick believes he did not deserve to be ejected.“You be the judge. You’re here every game and you can see it. Maybe on my side, when I feel that I am wrong, I know that I’m wrong. But I know I didn’t do anything. I just want to play the game that I love, growing up because this is my sport,” he said.“Whatever the referees or the commissioner does, if they’re mad at me, they’re critical of the team, it’s already their problem. That’s their job, and if they think they’ve done their job, then they’ve done their job. My job is to play for my team and bring the spirit, heart, love for the game and I hope that whatever the consequences they want to give me, I’ll accept it with a full heart. They think I did something? I was the one who got hurt and I was even thrown out.”ADVERTISEMENT Hotdog’s Dennis Garcia dies View comments Britain’s Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to give up royal titles Redemption is sweet for Ginebra, Scottie Thompsonlast_img read more

‘Cestos Market Becomes Death Trap’

first_imgThe Acting Superintendent of Cestos Market in Rivercess County has described the deplorable condition of their market hall as a death trap. Madam Cecelia Kebbeh made the statement recently during an exclusive interview with the Daily observer in Cestos City, the capital of Riverces County.Madam Kebbeh said if the market hall is not quickly renovated it may collapse and kill any of the marketers at any time.Madam Kebbeh mentioned that the building, which was constructed in the 1980s by the late President Samuel Kanyon Doe when he was chairman of the People’s Redemption Council (PRC), is breaking apart due to lack of rehabilitation since its construction.She disclosed that the roof and ceiling of the building are in poor condition and need to be changed. She pointed out that the building is also not able to accommodate the influx of marketers which is responsible for street selling in the city.She said street sellers do not pay for tickets to help maintain the market.She explained that even though they have hand pumps for safe drinking water, they lack latrines which causes them to use the beach to ease themselves.The marketers recently appointed Madam Kebbeh as Acting General Superintendent to replace the former General Superintendent Louis Blodyupto who has allegedly abandoned the position for years and now resides in Monrovia.The marketers alleged that before leaving for Monrovia Madam Blodyupto locked the office and the keys are still in her possession, thus depriving the Acting Officers access to the office, a claim that the Daily Observer could not confirm from Madam Blodyupto, because she could not be located. When her husband was contacted he refused to comment.One of the marketers, Madam Janet Saywrag who responded on behalf of her fellow marketers, lamented that they are unhappy in that street sellers continue to decrease their daily income because according to her they (street sellers) stop buyers from buying from them in the building for which they pay for tickets.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

‘Whitewater’ a frontline community in defence of territorial integrity – President

first_imgAs Guyana prepares to go before the International Court of Justice (ICJ) to defend its territorial integrity against claims being made by Venezuela, security concerns are increasing and as such, Commander-in-Chief President David Granger has declared that villages along the border with the neighbouring country are frontline communities in the fight to ensure the country’s territorial integrity.Residents of Whitewater and other surrounding communities gathered at a meeting with President GrangerThe Head of State was at the time speaking to residents of Whitewater, Region One (Barima-Waini) following a briefing at the new patrol base, which was set up by the Guyana Defence Force (GDF) in the community on February 14, 2018, after the Regional Intelligence Committee reported in a letter to the Head of State some security concerns as a result of the current situation in Venezuela.These reports were acted upon and a base was set up in less than 72 hours. Guyana’s border with Venezuela is nearly 800 kilometres long and villages such as Whitewater, Baramita, Kaikan and Arau are all border communities, which the President described as Guyana’s guardians.“You’re like our guardian, you’re like our shield, you are in the frontline and let me tell you this, since Guyana became independent in 1966; 52 years ago, our western neighbour, Venezuela, has been claiming this very land that you’re living on,” he said.The Commander-in-Chief told residents that the borders between Venezuela and Guyana have already been decided on and the country is readying itself to defend its territory at the ICJ.“I am very sure Whitewater, that after this matter goes to court, you’ll be able to live in peace and that you will not have any more provocation,” he said to loud applause.However, President Granger told residents that while there is an end to provocation in sight, all branches of Government, along with the security forces and residents must work together to defend and protect the country, noting that Government will do everything in its power to ensure their safety.“We want to make sure that you are safe and I’m here because I’m concerned about your safety. I’m here because I don’t want anybody to attack you; I don’t want anybody to hurt you; I don’t want crimes to be committed against you,” he said.  The military presence is intended to neutralise any illegal activity and provide a 24-hour guard system to ensure maximum security.President Granger, who was accompanied by Chief-of-Staff of the GDF, Brigadier Patrick West; member of the National Security Committee, Brigadier Bruce Lovell; and Commander of F Division (Interior locations), Senior Superintendent Ravindradat Budhram called on the Army, the Police and the regional administration to continue to work closely together with Central Government to ensure that citizens of those frontline communities are safe. Turning to the residents, he urged them to create Community Policing Groups (CPGs).Meanwhile, Region One Regional Chairman, Brentnol Ashley, explained that not only is the region faced with threats from the Syndicatos, it is also dealing with Guyanese, who are returning home as a result of the crisis in Venezuela through illegal ports of entry. He added that there are also instances where Venezuelan farmers and traders cross over into Guyana’s territory to sell their produce and other commodities.“The intervention of regular patrols and [security] persons being there in those communities would help to alleviate some of the security concerns that residents themselves would have raised with us… In Whitewater for instance, the Toshao and Council would have reached out to the RDC with these concerns too.  In addition to that, at the landing called Mora Landing, which is a very far distance of about three hours walk back and forth, we were told that Venezuelans were setting up a fuel depot there, which is illegal, so the presence of our Joint Services on patrol in those far flung areas is important,” the Regional Chairman said.Ashley also called on residents to give their full cooperation to the GDF and other Joint Services ranks and urged them to be vigilant and to report promptly, any possible security threats.The village of Whitewater has an area of over 74.8 kilometers. Residents of the community depend largely on farming, fishing, hunting and small entrepreneurial ventures for their livelihoods.last_img read more

Flying Fossils Found

first_imgA population of insects called “living fossils” has been located in Australia.  These tiny insects, called ancient greenling damselflies, have no living relatives.  Their closest relatives disappeared from the fossil record 250 to 300 million years ago in the geological column, according to The Age and Heidelberg Leader.  The wingspan of the insects is only 22mm and they are camouflaged, so it was difficult to detect them.  A scientist involved in the discovery said, “There are a lot of unanswered questions.”A big entry in the class of impossible-to-believe claims of evolution is the notion that an animal went extinct in the age of dinosaurs but still is found alive today, hundreds of millions of years later.  If this were the only case it would be enough to cause serious doubts about the consensus age of the earth and Darwinian evolution, but there are many living fossils: see article at CMI and partial lists at CreationWiki and NWCreation.net.(Visited 8 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more
