(AP Photo/David J. Phillip)SAN ANTONIO — Staring down a 10-point deficit against an underdog that seemed nothing short of blessed during the madness of March, Moe Wagner and Michigan clamped down on Loyola-Chicago and ended one of the most memorable NCAA Tournament runs ever.Wagner, Charles Matthews and the Wolverines erased a 10-point second-half deficit and Michigan beat the Ramblers 69-57 Saturday night in the Final Four.ADVERTISEMENT LATEST STORIES Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

The Ramblers were the fourth 11th-seeded team to make it this far and like the previous three, the semifinals were the end of the road.Coach Porter Moser said he was proud of players Ben Richardson, Aundre Jackson and Donte Ingram for holding it together during a postgame news conference, answering questions with red eyes and long faces. Judy Ann’s 1st project for 2020 is giving her a ‘stomachache’ “It was as tough a locker room as I’ve seen,” Moser said. “They believed that they belong. They believed, they wanted to advance.”Loyola had no answers for the 6-foot-11 Wagner and its offense, so smooth and efficient on the way to San Antonio, broke down in the second half and finished with 17 turnovers.Wagner, playing in front of his parents who made the trip from Germany, scored 24 points, had 15 rebounds and was 10 for 16 from the field. Matthews, the Kentucky transfer and Chicago native, added 17 points, including a run-out dunk with 1:33 left that made it 63-53.And that was that.“I just tried to go in the game, take what the opponent is giving me, what the game is giving me, stay emotionally solid and don’t get emotionally drunk, and it worked out today,” said Wagner, who became the third player in the last 40 years with a 20 and 15 game in the Final Four, joining Hakeem Olajuwon of Houston in 1983 (then known as Akeem) and Larry Bird of Indiana State in 1979.ADVERTISEMENT Recto seeks to establish Taal rehab body to aid community, eruption victims Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Cabuyao City rising above the ashes through volunteerismcenter_img Nadine Lustre’s phone stolen in Brazil Jiro Manio arrested for stabbing man in Marikina Scarlett Johansson, Sterling K.

But facing one of the best defensive teams in the country, the best defensive team Beilein has ever had in 11 seasons in Ann Arbor, the Ramblers scored just 16 points in the final 14 minutes.Custer scored seven straight points for Loyola at one point to put the Ramblers up 41-31 with 14:08 remaining. Michigan refused to fade, even with point guard Zavier Simpson — whose solid play has been critical to the Wolverines’ late-season surge — playing terribly. Simpson had none points and four turnovers.Jaaron Simmons, Simpson’s backup, made a 3 and Duncan Robinson hit another a few minutes later and the deficit was down to 45-42 with 10 minutes left.“Not dropping our heads, that was the main thing,” Simmons said. “We haven’t been down in a game for a long time. So not dropping our heads was one of the main adjustments we had to make.”Wagner hit a 3 from right in front of the Michigan bench with 6:50 left to tie it, and moments later the Wolverines were back on top, 49-47, when Jordan Poole made two free throws.Loyola turned it over on three straight possessions and Wagner tipped in a miss by Poole, was fouled and converted the three-point play to put Michigan up 54-47 with just under five minutes left.The Ramblers’ 14-game losing streak is over, along with an incredible feel-good story at a time that college basketball, engulfed in a corruption scandal, could truly use one. Sister Jean Dolores-Schmidt and her favorite team, the Missouri Valley Conference champions, making their first NCAA appearance since 1985, will return to Chicago as heroes, regardless.“It’s special to see kind of what stage we were able to get to,” said Richardson, a senior who grew up in Kansas with Custer and then convinced his friend to transfer from Iowa State to Loyola. “Despite going out this way, were going to never forget this. I think a lot of people will remember this run for a long time.”Michigan has more work to do. The Wolverines will resume the underdog role they played much of the season Monday night, trying to win its second NCAA championship.

‘Quality Must Remain Benchmark of Your Output’

first_imgVice President Joseph N. Boakai has urged medical practitioners of the Liberia Post Graduate Medical Council (LPGMC) of the Liberia College of Physicians and Surgeons (LCPS) that they should do all to maintain quality as the benchmark of their outputs.The VP spoke Friday, June 27, when he served as the inducting officer for the Executive Board and Foundation Fellows of the LPGMC of the LCPS.The VP said he was urging them to uphold quality in their profession all the more such a great necessity especially considering the critical importance and life-saving nature of their professional calling.“This is why on occasions of this brand—swearing in vital leadership organs of professional entities of this high standing—I pivot essentially one and the same mantra.  I implore them to truly pursue their defined mission of correctly nudging the entity on its plotted course forward.  I know enough to recognize that you are governed by an oath that is ever greater—the Hippocratic Oath.”The Liberian Vice President further told them that with the existence of the graduate medical education program, theirs “is the call to steer it on the solid goal-getting course–a trajectory that pivots the yielding of quality products that Liberia can be proud of. The fact is that, in your vocation, multitudes of credential-toting characters less endowed qualitatively pose a serious dilemma for any nation.”“The least we can expect, therefore, is that you will wield existing best practices in the drive to enrich your cohorts with the most impactful course content. This should find justification in the enhancement of our medical care delivery regimen. I sure can trust you on this.”The Vice President emphasized to the board members that they should firstly convince themselves that they are indeed strengthening the College.“The sharpness of the leadership acumen of every board is in even greater demand when we take into account the pervasive scarcity of resources, which sadly is the order of the day. I hence always warn that boards never to shirk in their oversight responsibility to ensure that the emphasis is on quality as much as it is grounded in parsimony.”“You, the Board members and Foundation Fellows, carry the prime responsibility of fashioning result-oriented programmatic systems—systems that will ensure that specialists you produce here are so imbued that they know no fears confronting any professional challenge anywhere,” he told them. Speaking earlier, Liberia’s Chief Medical Officer and Deputy Minister of Health and Social Welfare, Dr. Bernice Dahn, said the coming into being of the post graduate medical program was a dream come true for Liberia’s frail health sector, which was badly hit during the country’s civil crisis.Also speaking, Dr. Roseda E. Marshall, president of LCPS, believed that this is the time and season to begin the training of medical specialists for the country.Dr. Marshall, a Pediatrician, disclosed that the country does not have pathologists, anesthesiologists, hematologists and other specialists so the training of these specialists in the post-graduate program was paramount.Those inducted by Vice President Joseph Boakai included Dr. Marshall, Dr. Robert M. Kpoto, Dr. Benjimin Harris, Dr. Rose Jallah Macauley and Dr. Stephen Kennedy.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

FITUG highlights high unemployment, cost of living, crime

first_img…as union engages Finance Ministry on 2019 BudgetThe Federation of Independent Trade Unions of Guyana (FITUG) on Friday said it has engaged the Finance Ministry on talks for the final budget before Guyana gets deeper into the oil industry as of 2020.During a meeting that was organised by representatives of the organisation and Junior Finance Minister Jaipaul Sharma, the discussion circled around the development of the upcoming budget as part of its pre-budget consultations and ways to deal with some of the issues that has been affecting Guyanese.While the Federation sided with the Government’s intention to establish a Sovereign Wealth Fund (SWF), it stated that there is the need for “institutional safeguards and appropriate policies” to avoid any downsides that many countries are currently facing. This is necessary since large sums of money will flow into the country when oil production begins.Another scenario, which baffled the Federation was the high unemployment rate which noted that as many as 12 per cent of Guyanese were jobless at the ending of September last year and out of this figure, one out of five were youths. As such, the solution suggested included the implementation of training programmes for unemployed individuals as well as the introduction of a national job bank.“Vexingly, we pointed out that large proportions of the unemployed were jobless forFITUG’s President Carvil Duncanmore than a year, indicating that jobs were difficult to come by. On this matter, we urged the Government to urgently consider training or re-training programmes for those who are unemployed. We suggested too the Administration consider the establishment of a national job bank to allow employers and prospective employees,” the union noted.It added that while this number has increased over the past year, another issue to worry about is the high cost of living along with the increased prices for other commodities. Additionally, the minibus fares were increased and the water rate is soon to follow.From 2014 to 2017, tax revenues have risen from $136.5 billion to $171.5 billion with the VAT and Excise receipts growing by nearly 25 per cent and Income Tax revenues rising by just over 31 per cent. During the engagement, FITUG called for increases in the Old Age Pension and some interventions to reduce utility costs.“We urged the Government to consider increasing the Old Aged Pension to $30,000 per month; reducing the Excise Tax on fuel towards reducing the public transportation costs; reintroducing electricity and water subsidies for old aged pensioners, among other things.”Pleas were also made for considerations to be made in the closed sugar estates and the fact that the plights of the workers should not be ignored. As such, budgetary allocations should be made to ensure that their children can attend school and also for the retrenched workers to be engaged in workshops to assist with the obtainment of another job.“We called on the Administration to consider an income support mechanism to ensure families can meet their obligations and send their children to school, among other things; introduction of school bus services to transport all school-aged children from their homes to school and to establish skills training programmes to allow the former sugar workers and the youth to receive skills that are demanded by the labour market,” FITUG stated.It added that recently, the country has seen a plague of increased criminal activities which the agency believes can be dealt with, by expanding emergency response in all regions. According to the organisation, the most effective way to end this scourge is by reducing the high unemployment rate.In the public infrastructure sector, it was highlighted that large sums of monies being allocated towards the main roads and bridges while many communities are faced with impassable roads, poor draining and dilapidated bridges.“We should not ignored and we suggested the Budget 2019 seeks to strike a balance towards allaying these difficulties our people face.”Public health was also on the agenda for areas to be addressed in the 2019 Budget scheme. In many cases, it is being reported that there are no drugs available at the health facilities.It was suggested that procurement systems are geared at ensuring the availability of drugs and there is an equitable spread of resources in all regions.last_img read more

“The King” makes accurate predictions

first_img“Young Guns – The Proving Ground”With the intent of giving younger boxers a platform to showcase the fruits of their hard work in the ring, the Guyana Boxing Board of Control (GBBC) on Saturday evening staged their first ever ‘Young Guns – The Proving Ground’, which ironically lived up to its name.‘The King’ celebrates his easy victory with his mini meThe five-card event saw a mixture of debut boxers, females, and even an international sensation, all competing in the square jungle at the Cliff Anderson Sports Hall (CASH).Like any other boxing event, the boisterous crowd was not shy to shout its approval or disapproval, creating a highly intense and competitive atmosphere.Of the first pair to take the ring, Terrence Adams, who had just one fight in his professional career — which he had won — came up against the debutant Delon Charles. The contest was indeed close, with the featherweight boxers throwing punch after punch in hope of achieving a boxer’s ultimate dream, a knockout.The four rounds of competition expired quickly, and it was not a shocker that the debutant Charles had emerged victorious. This was mainly owing to the fact that the boxing had produced a stronger final round than his opponent.James Moore enjoying his advantage over Romeo NorvilleNext to take the ring were the females. Being the only female contest on the cards, the animated audience was pumped and ready for the action. Rewinna David and Ansilla Norville had both expressed their intention to come out victorious, but on fight night it seemed as though only one boxer was determined enough. David carried an air of confidence, firing strong punches at her opponent, who could only resolve to clinch when the heat was too much. David often had her opponent on the ropes, and even though it looked like the audience would see their first knockout of the night, Norville survived. But it was no surprise that David’s hand was the one raised at the end of the bout.Given his long record in the ring, many would have thought that Anson Green would emerge victorious over his debuting opponent, but the crowd was in for a shock. Green, who has a track record of two wins and six losses, appeared certain that he would be able to demolish Joel Williamson, but it was the other way around. Four rounds of back and forth jabs saw the more experienced fighter ‘getting a run for his money’, as the humble Williamson grabbed the victory.The penultimate fight could be deemed the fight of the night, as it featured a comedy of errors. When James Moore and Romeo Norville stepped into the ring for their cruiserweight contest, the difference in the boxers was clearly visible to the energetic crowd. The tall, lanky Moore towered over his opponent and made it difficult for him to connect a punch. Try as Norville did, Moore’s advantage saw him delivering jab after jab to the head, and when the chatter from the crowd became overwhelming, Moore would dabble in taunts that entertained viewers and upset Norville’s coach. After the third round, the officials called off the fight, awarding Moore a technical knockout to take his professional career to two wins in two bouts.A glimpse of the female actionThe excitement of the previous match made the way for a great atmosphere at CASH, as the boxers prepared for the final bout. The Barbadian Keithland King had boasted upon his arrival in Guyana that he would be able to knock out his opponent Derick Richmond by the second round of their middleweight contest. Although it didn’t go exactly that way, it was a close call. The self-assured Guyanese boxer made use of the home crowd advantage, even as ‘The King’ made his grand entrance. With the fight underway, the Guyanese advanced, throwing jab after jab that often missed its target. After the first round, Richmond was visibly tiring, paving the way for King to make light work of him.Richmond barely survived the second round, the crowd going quiet as the announcement came that the match would be discontinued and a technical knockout would be awarded to the visitor, making King’s prediction off by just a short margin.Owing to the success of the first “Young Guns – The proving Ground’ card, the GBBC and organisers Clive Atwell and Dexter Marques are in talks to have a similar event each month.last_img read more

City opts for flexible 15 per cent reserve allocation for 2016 Capital & Operations budget

first_imgFORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — Out of four scenarios for the Capital/Operations budget presented in yesterday’s Committee of the Whole, a 15 per cent scenario that would allow room for a maximum of 20 per cent and a minimum of 10 per cent was chosen by Council.This scenario sees 15 per cent reserve allocation, and all the projects listed in Scenario 1, with more room for Office Equipment and replacements in the budget.Credit: City of Fort St. JohnCredit: City of Fort St. John- Advertisement –Credit: City of Fort St. JohnCredit: City of Fort St. JohnWith the implementation of this flexible model would come the implementation of a policy to properly handle the budget and projects; City Manager Dianne Hunter says a higher percentage means more commitment to putting money away, and a lower percentage means addressing the needs of the city immediately.“There’s no right or wrong in the numbers — there’s no magic in the numbers, but they do speak to two different philosophical approaches to your financial sustainability,” she said.Advertisement The model sees no reserve allocation in Transportation — the section which receives the most funding from the Peace River Agreement — and slightly less in equipment reserve allocation than the 20 per cent scenario.last_img read more

OFFICIAL: Manchester United sign Paul Pogba for world record £89m fee

first_img1 Home. #POGBACK pic.twitter.com/N0irgKbuv5— Manchester United (@ManUtd) August 8, 2016 Paul Pogba Manchester United have re-signed Paul Pogba for a world record transfer fee.The 23-year-old midfielder has penned a five-year contract with the Premier League side after he passed a medical on Monday.United have been chasing the Frenchman all summer and finally got their man after agreeing to pay Juventus €105million (£89m).That figure beats the estimated £85million that Real Madrid paid Tottenham for Gareth Bale in 2013 in the previous world record deal. Juve have revealed United could also owe them a further €5million (£4.25m) if certain sporting targets are reached during the course of Pogba’s contract.Pogba left United four years ago for a nominal fee, and went on to win four Serie A titles and the Coppa Italia twice while his reputation grew – persuading Jose Mourinho to pay a colossal sum to bring him back to Old Trafford.“I am delighted to rejoin United,” Pogba said. “It has always been a club with a special place in my heart and I am really looking forward to working with Jose Mourinho.“I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Juventus and have some fantastic memories of a great club with players that I count as friends.“But I feel the time is right to go back to Old Trafford. I always enjoyed playing in front of the fans and can’t wait to make my contribution to the team. This is the right club for me to achieve everything I hope to in the game.”Pogba’s move has been one of the most protracted transfers of the summer, and there was a final tease before confirmation finally came in the early hours of Tuesday morning.First, United posted a video on Twitter of a hooded figure in a club training top with the message “Are you ready? #POGBACK”.Moments later, Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola tweeted “THE MAN IS UNITED”.And Pogba himself then followed up by bidding farewell to Juventus.“Thanks @juventusfc and all Juventini. Goodbye means nothing, it is the time we spent together that matters,” he wrote.Only then did the official announcement come from the club.  But United and their fans will hope Pogba proves to be worth the wait. “Paul is one of the best players in the world and will be a key part of the United team I want to build here for the future,” Mourinho said once the deal was official.“He is quick, strong, scores goals and reads the game better than many players much older than he is.“At 23, he has the chance to make that position his own here over many years. He is young and will continue to improve; he has the chance to be at the heart of this club for the next decade and beyond.”last_img read more
