Guiao on being permanent PH coach: ‘If they give it to me formally, I will accept it’

first_imgBut even informally, Guiao doesn’t want to talk about the head coaching post beyond the World Cup.“If we don’t qualify, (I’ll quit),” he said. “Only shows that I ‘m not up to the task.”“It’s about milestones,” he added. “It’s about delivering the objective, why you’re there. If our goal is the World Cup and we don’t make it, as coach, you should resign.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next “These guys play through cut foreheads and bleeding noses and show up even with their wives pregnant (at home),” said Guiao. “What kind of a hardship would it be for me to leave them? What kind of a person would I be if I do that?”There even won’t be any need for long-drawn negotiations.“We are not talking about money anyway,” he said. “(SBP officials) just told us to play, to coach, and they did not promise us anything. We just want to be of service (to the country).”Ryan Gregorio, who is a scout for the national team, said Guiao’s effect on the national program is evident. The talent depth of the national pool has expanded exponentially since he took over the reins on an interim basis.“The only problem with coach Yeng is a great problem,” Gregorio said. “Everybody wants to play for him. Marcio (Lassiter) had his forehead cut open in the game against Iran. When we flew back here, he had it stitched immediately so he can play against Qatar.”ADVERTISEMENT Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio 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 respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award Cold-shooting Philippines turns to defense in win over Qatar Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Phivolcs: Slim probability of Taal Volcano caldera eruption LATEST STORIES Nadine Lustre’s phone stolen in Brazil Allen Durham still determined to help Meralco win 1st PBA title Japeth Aguilar embraces role, gets rewarded with Finals MVP plum Tim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crown Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Gov’t to employ 6,000 displaced by Taal Gretchen Barretto’s daughter Dominique graduates magna cum laude from California college There is no other coach in the horizon that would be a suitable successor to Reyes’ post.

Selector Keston wins Digicel’s “Bring the Beat” deejay competition

first_imgThe inaugural Digicel Amateur Disc Jockey (DJ) competition ended in the wee hours of Saturday morning at the Cliff Anderson Sports Hall tarmac, with Selector Keston juggling all the popular hits to win the crowd and the judges hearts as the best DJ.Keston Tyrell, popularly known as “Selector Keston” outplayed Travis Hart (DJ Vybz) and Cletus Smith (DJ Smidjit) who secured the second and third spots respectively.Digicel’s Averstising Manager Ramesh Roopchand hands over the Pioneer console and the Beats headphones to the winner of the competition, Selector KestonTyrell walked away with $200,000, a Pioneer console, a pair of Beats headphones, hard drives and one year free credit from Digicel, while DJ Vybz received $150,000 and the same accessories and DJ Smidjit took home $100,000 as well as the other prizes.The other DJs that made it through to the final were Jefferson Meusa (DJ Spotlight), Shequille Sparman (Selector Shaqq) and Brian Joseph (DJ Bentley). DJ Smidjit made it to the final after he won a wildcard sound-off against Dwain Bowen (Mix Master Toney).The DJs were judged on their style and ability to play across the various genres; a change in the final – they were given flash drives which contained varying genres of music which they had to incorporate into their own track list.Speaking after the announcement of the results, the winner felt his success was due to him being unique from the other competitors while adding that overall the competition was a great learning experience.“I felt I was more creative than the others, I played songs that they did not expect, the competition taught me a lot, different crowds you have to play different music, and you need to learn how to adapt quickly,” he said.Tyrell further stated that the prizes won will ultimately help him improve on his endeavours going forward in the entertainment sector.Meanwhile, Digicel’s Advertising Manager Ramesh Roopchand disclosed that a second edition is on the cards and promises it to be “bigger and better”.“As you can see, the amount of people that came to support these DJs, it has been overwhelming; this was just a pilot project and it came out excellent and I can guarantee you come next year, it will be bigger and better”, Roopchand said.His advice for those desirous of competing next year is to get in as much practice now, adding, “We want DJs to be more versatile, you must be able to mix all genres of music and apart from that, they should be able to mix music on the spot”.The competition lasted six weeks and featured over 100 participants from across the country.last_img read more

What’s Happening in Yekepa?

first_imgWe have long heard of the extremely slow pace of development in the formerly booming town of Yekepa, the center of mining operations in Nimba County.From the 1960s through the mid-1980s the town was the headquarters of the iron ore mining company, LAMCO, a Liberian, Swedish, Canadian an American iron ore conglomerate, known then as  one of Africa’s biggest companies.  It boasted modern housing for high, middle and low-level staff; 24-hour electricity and pipe-borne water; a modern medical center; a vocational training school; and many other social amenities available to the company’s workers.But since the Indian steel giant, ArcelorMittal, took over operation of the mines in 2005, we have heard consistent complaints about the very slow pace of work there.  Last week Nimba youths staged a sit-in on the railway in protest against the company’s failure on many of the agreed projects.Arcelor came in with great promise.  One of the major components of its concession agreement was the multimillion dollar Social Development Fund that put money into the hands of people in the three counties in which the company is involved–Nimba, Bong and Grand Bassa.Is was the first such fund required from concessions in Liberia. Nimba receives US$1.5 million, Grand Bassa US$1 million and Bong US$500,000.  The Community Colleges in Nimba and Grand Bassa are direct results.But there are many problems with the Arcelor Mittal that    are frustrating Nimba citizens.   Our Nimba correspondent Ishmael Menkir visited Yekepa in February.  He found the hospital in deplorable condition, not yet renovated ever since Mittal took over the operations in 2005. Nor have most of the schools been renovated.In addition, the Ganta-Yekepa road, which Arcelor Mittal since 2007 promised to rehabilitate and pave, is yet to be done.  Another Dry Season is past and the Rainy Season is upon us.  How long can the people wait for implementation of written agreements between them, their government and this company?Liberians and their government are far more familiar with Americans and Europeans than Indians.  The country was founded by freed men and women from the United States, which has had the longer relations with us than any other country.  Our relations with Europe date back to 1848 when Liberia entered diplomatic relations with Britain, the first country to recognize our independence.  Other European nations, including the Hanseatic States, began recognizing Liberia from the 1850s.But Liberia’s first contact with Indians came in the early 1950s when an Indian national opened what he called an “Indian Bazaar” at the foot of Mechlin Street Down Waterside.  Since then many Indians, beginning with Sethi Brothers, have entered the Liberian market, especially in building materials.  Now the Indians have a serious eye on Liberia’s mineral resources, beginning with Arcelor Mittal. This multibillion dollar deal signaled a lot of hope.  But neither the Liberian government nor its people fully understood the Indians’ intentions–nor their way of doing business.Another Indian company, Sesa Goa, has also taken over the Western Cluster mines in Bomi and Cape Mount counties.  But the GOL knew little about this company and the Daily Observer warned the GOL many times about this.  But GOL went ahead and let it happen.GOL did not even know well enough Elenilto, the Israeli scrap metal company to which GOL, against the advice of the Daily Observer and many others, gave the concession to mine iron ore in the Western Cluster.  But GOL ignored the warnings and Elenilto walked away with over US$100 million when, realizing just as we had said, that they knew nothing about iron ore mining, they sold 49% of the concession to Sesa Goa, an Indian iron ore firm.A few months later, Elenilto sold to Sesa Goa the remaining 51%.  Yet GOL knew nothing about Sesa Goa.  So GOL seemed taken aback when that company one morning presented a most preposterous (absurd) proposal to ship its iron ore from Cape Mount and Bomi by truck to the Free Port of Monrovia!  Now there is another development: the company has scaled down its operation by 80% because of “difficulties.”  Did GOL really know who Sesa Goa really was?As for Arcelor Mittal, GOL needs to engage them  seriously and get them to honor their commitments to their concession agreement.  The company needs to realize that it is not doing business in Liberia in a vacuum, but among Liberians with whom the company has to live and work in order to succeed in doing business.This is the message the youth of Nimba are sending.  It is about their future that they are concerned–and rightly so.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Rooney excited to see what ‘fearless’ England are capable of

first_img0Shares0000Wayne Rooney will earn his 120th England cap against the USA on Thursday © AFP / Paul ELLISBURTON-ON-TRENT, United Kingdom, Nov 14 – Wayne Rooney will make his final farewell as England’s greatest ever goalscorer in a friendly against the United States on Thursday, but is excited at what a young squad can achieve under “fearless” coach Gareth Southgate in the years to come.Rooney, 33, made the last of his 119 international appearances midway through England’s World Cup qualifying campaign two years ago. In contrast to his prime when a “golden generation” disappointed at major tournaments and never made it beyond the quarter-finals, Southgate’s charges surpassed expectations by making it to the semi-finals of a World Cup for the first time in 28 years in Russia.“Fearless,” said Rooney when asked what set Southgate apart from the other five England managers he played under. “Because a lot of the other managers didn’t really give the youth the opportunity to express themselves and come into the team and have an impact.”Rooney insisted he has no regrets on retiring from international football a year before the World Cup, but admitted even he was surprised at how quickly Southgate’s squad matured into contenders to be world champions.“I saw over two years ago the talent we had with the young players,” he added. “I believed those players, maybe not in the World Cup but the one after that, would be good enough to have a go at it. They proved me wrong by doing so well in this World Cup.”England carried on the momentum from their World Cup campaign by inflicting Spain’s first competitive defeat on home soil for 15 years in a thrilling 3-2 victory in Seville last month.Should Luis Enrique’s men fail to bounce back with victory in Croatia on Thursday, England will have the chance to progress to the inaugural Nations League semi-finals by beating the Croats at Wembley on Sunday.– ‘I’m excited’ –Jadon Sancho has starred for Borussia Dortmund this season to break into the England squad © dpa/AFP / Bernd ThissenHowever, the long-term target remains success at Euro 2020 with the extra incentive of the semi-finals and final to be played at Wembley.“Myself along with all you guys (media) are of the opinion the squad is growing, getting better. I’m excited to see them in the next tournament,” added Rooney.While the former Everton and Manchester United striker brings down the curtain on his England career, Southgate has the chance to test some of those at the end other end of their international career against the States.Jadon Sancho, 18, is in line for his first start after starring in Borussia Dortmund’s 3-2 win over Bayern Munich on Saturday.Rooney himself burst onto the international scene as an 18-year-old at Euro 2004, but admitted he didn’t always enjoy his England career as he should have after that tournament given the burden of expectation to perform he shouldered.“When you’re in that mode you don’t want to admit there is pressure to perform. I’ve stepped back from that now and can analyse that there was that pressure,” he added.“Having that makes you try too hard and makes you a bit too anxious, so you don’t enjoy it as much as you should. You play your best football and best performances when you’re enjoying playing and winning.”And Rooney is confident this generation can succeed where his failed in winning England’s first major trophy since 1966 if they maintain the free spirit they showed in the summer.“Enjoy it. It’s a huge honour in your career. Probably the best honour you can have,” said when asked to give advice to the current squad.“It won’t always be good, every tournament or every game, but as long as you keep trying to learn and make sure you’re one of the players who can try and bring a trophy back to England, which is long overdue.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
