Strong second half propels Azkals past Maldives

first_imgMOST READ Ethel Booba on SEA Games cauldron: ‘Sulit kung corrupt ang panggatong’ Ramsay immediately tried his luck from range just seconds after the restart and the Azkals played with a spring in their step, pressing high and looking to always win the ball early.Aside from his goal, Strauss did what he does best, hunting the ball in dangerous areas especially when the hosts tried to build from the back.His persistence in the 69th minute paid off when he stabbed the ball home from close range after Reichelt and Luke Woodland were denied by the post. A moment of indecision in defense allowed the Maldives topull the goal back late on, but the Azkals did enough to get maximum points, prompting Cooper to hail the character of his squad.“I mean we can say two things about consistency: performance and result. This was purely about result,” he said. “It’s a difficult place to play, its a hard stadium to play in. They (Maldives) werefull of spirit. And it made it more difficult because our first half performance wasn’t up to the standard of the character of the team.The missed penalty was a blow because a lot of times when you miss a penalty, the other team comes back. Again at halftime, we had to speak quite strongly over what we could deal with the expectations and wesaw the reactions in the performance in the second half.”ADVERTISEMENT Matteo Guidicelli had saved up for Sarah G’s ring since 2014? Philippine Azkals celebrate goal against Maldives. Photo from Cedelf Tupas/INQUIRERnetMALE – Playing the Maldives in its home stadium was always going to be a tricky encounter for the Philippines.Not only were they going to deal with a team that had ambitions to progress further in World Cup Qualifying, the Azkals also had players far from their best fitness levels since their seasons with their clubs had already been wrapped up a few weeks ago.ADVERTISEMENT Priority legislation in the 18th Congress LATEST STORIES The Azkals arrived in Dubai late Friday, needing to rest and recoverfor the duel against Syria on Tuesday at Rashid Stadium. Tied with China with seven points from the first five matches, the Azkals remain in the thick of the fight of the Top 2 finish that could see them make the third round of qualifying for the first time in history.But the Syrians are the only unbeaten team in the group and have already beaten the Azkals, 5-2, at Panaad Stadium two months ago.“We’ve seen them and they’ve seen us and we’re able to learn more about them in the last few matches,” said Cooper. “We’re going to need every player to play well on Tuesday.”Azkals manager Dan Palami was happy to see the team taking steps atthe right direction as players have stepped up to the challenge in the last three matches.“It’s great to see the team bounce back after the loss to Syria with seven points from the last three games,” said Palami. “We’ve got a great momentum and a atmosphere within the team. The players are inhigh spirits and they know what’s expected of them. Hopefully, we’re able to carry that over to the match against Syria.”Palami also gave credit to Philippine Football Federation president Nonong Araneta for making sure the team’s needs are taken care of in this crucial stretch of the qualifiers.“The leadership of Sir Nonong has been instrumental in our qualifying campaign,” said Palami. “Getting the results in the last three matches would not have been possible if he had not taken an active role inhelping us prepare the team for matches.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Rondina, Pons off to strong start in final SEA Games tune up The pressure to follow up that huge performance against China last month was also mounting with Azkals coach Scott Cooper needing to find a level of consistency in their play regardless of the pedigree of theopposition.The start was tepid and erratic, but the Azkals did come away with a 2-1 victory on the strength of an improved second half that saw Iain Ramsay score his first goal in more than two years and Patrick Strauss bagging his second goal of the qualifiers.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGreatest ever?SPORTSFormer PBA import Anthony Grundy passes away at 40SPORTSSan Miguel suspends Santos, Nabong, Tubid indefinitely after ‘tussle’ in practiceCooper was pleased at the way his team responded after half-time.

Home of the NHL Winnipeg Jets gets new moniker after Bell MTS

first_imgWINNIPEG – The home of the National Hockey League Winnipeg Jets is getting a new name.After 13 years as MTS Centre, the downtown arena is being renamed Bell MTS Place.The change reflects the recent takeover by Bell Canada of MTS. There are no other changes to MTS’s naming agreement that expires in 2021.Jets co-owner Mark Chipman says since there is already a Bell Centre in Montreal, using the word “place” in the new moniker avoids any potential confusion.The arena opened in 2004 and was initially home to the Manitoba Moose of the American Hockey League.In 2011, the Jets moved in after being relocated from Atlanta.“It’s been an era where building name changes have been common. I think we’re one of the longest-standing-name buildings in the country and we’re really proud of that,” Chipman said Tuesday.“I love the fact that Bell has kept the MTS name as a part of their name going forward.”last_img read more

Two Moroccan Politicians Fight Inside Parliament After the Kings Speech

Marrakech – King Mohammed VI delivered a landmark speech before the two houses of parliament on Friday in Rabat.During his speech, the King criticized the lack of action and effective work of the Moroccan political class, and urged it to develop “a truly ethical charter for political action.”“Political discourse requires being honest with the citizens, making objective analyses and ensuring that stakeholders show mutual respect, so they can all be partners in serving the nation, and not just politicians divided by narrow interests”, the King said. Shortly after the speech, a fierce fight broke out between Parliamentary Advisor of the Authenticity and Modernity Party (PAM), Aziz Lebbar, and the Secretary General of the independence Party, Hamid Chabat, both from the city of Fez, Morocco’s third largest city.The fight took place after Chabat addressed Lebbar congratulating him for the feast of Eid Al Adha. Instead of doing likewise, Lebbar answered him and said, “he was just a thief and he sold the city of Fez.” As soon the fight broke out, some members of Parliament tried to end it.The PAM party member claimed that, “Chabat‘s role within the parliament is protecting thugs who have treated him aggressively.” He also accused him of destroying and burning Fez, making its people homeless, and turning it into the capital of criminality.Lebbar called PAM, “a clean party”, and urged its members to ”cease all kinds of coordination with parties such as the one led by the criminal Chabat.” On the other hand, he called upon the party to look for other alliances that would push people to eagerly engage in politics.Abd-el-Kader Kihal, another member of Chabat’s Independence party, condemned the behavior of Lebbar, as he emphasized that the suitable place to discuss the problems of Fez is not in the parliament.Commenting on this incident, Chabat said, “Lebbar’s behavior is abnormal.” Additionally, he told Hespress that, “All what happened is essentially due to many actions he carried out as mayor of the city of Fez.”Immediately after the incident the PAM party decided to exclude Lebbar from its ranks.The incident was commented by Moroccans, who deplored the lack of civility of the MPs and their lack of respect towards the King and the Moroccan people. read more

UN expert urges Somalia to guarantee free expression and to suspend death

“Somali journalists are often harassed, arrested, censored, even imprisoned, and media organizations are closed down,” underlined Bahame Tom Mukirya Nyanduga, who is the United Nations Independent Expert on the situation of human rights in the troubled Horn of Africa country, where he just completed his second mission on 29 May.“Such incidents risk having a chilling effect on this basic right, particularly essential at a time when Somalia moves towards finalising its State-building process,” the expert noted, calling on the Federal Government to put in place a legal framework that guarantees the freedom of the media, to practise their profession free of intimidation, harassment and imprisonment. Mr. Bahame Nyanduga also expressed concern at the continued application of the death penalty throughout Somalia, despite the commitment to adopt a moratorium on capital punishment made by the Government to the UN Human Rights Council during it 2011 Universal Periodic Review of the situation in the country.“I encourage the Somali authorities to put in place that moratorium,” he stressed. During his eight-day mission, which began on 22 May, the expert equally drew attention to the apparent weakness in security and justice institutions, particularly the failure by the police to provide adequate security for the civilian population, including in camps for internally displaced people.In response, the Government explained its efforts to increase police recruitment, particularly of female police officers and to enhance their technical capacities. Officials also outlined the efforts undertaken to provide protection to victims of rape and gender-based violence and to encourage victims to use the formal justice system rather than the traditional justice system.According to the Independent Expert, the Federal Government and the regional authorities to engage in dialogue with traditional and religious leaders in the lead-up to the constitutional referendum and elections in 2016 to encourage inclusive participation of women, minorities and persons with disabilities in the political process.Next year, Somalia’s human rights record will be reviewed by other UN Member States through the Universal Periodic Review process. This September, Mr. Bahame Nyanduga will submit a comprehensive report with recommendations to the Human Rights Council aimed at assisting the government to fulfil its obligations.Independent experts or special rapporteurs are appointed by the Geneva-based Human Rights Council to examine and report back on a country situation or a specific human rights theme. The positions are honorary and the experts are not UN staff, nor are they paid for their work. read more

In strifetorn Afghanistan people need support more than ever says senior UN

“In many parts of Afghanistan, violence continues unabated and people need support more than ever,” said Toby Lanzer, the UN Humanitarian Coordinator in Afghanistan, underlining the needs in the country. “Today I call on international donors to stand by 2.8 million people whose lives have been ruined by conflict or natural disaster, and to help people returning to Afghanistan from neighbouring countries.” According to a news release issued by the UN Office for Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), the plan includes activities of more than 150 national and international humanitarian organizations as well as the UN to deliver assistance to families and communities in need. There are however, substantial challenges, including difficult access conditions as well as increasing violence against aid workers. Last year, armed clashes were the highest in a decade and civilian casualties remained near record levels. In addition to more than two million people directly affected by the conflict including almost half a million displaced, 2017 also saw about 500,000 Afghans returning to their homes after seeking refuge in Iran, Pakistan or other countries. The 2018 Humanitarian Response Plan focuses only on providing life-saving emergency assistance such as food and shelter, medical treatment and nutrition interventions for malnourished child to people caught up in current or very recent disasters. Besides the 2.8 million people the plan is designed for, another 8.7 million people are estimated to live with high level of needs as a result of long-standing and unresolved issues such as lack of jobs and livelihoods, long-term displacement, an underfunded healthcare system or the effects of climate change. “Humanitarian emergency assistance cannot provide a solution for such chronic needs, like land for housing or jobs and vocational training to lift them out of poverty and fragility,” read the news release, underlining the need to improve the underlying conditions. read more

Gold mine donation will inspire future geologists

This photo of gold mine workers in the 1980s is part of the Hemlo gold donation to Brock.There’s gold in them there hills, and entrepreneur David Bell is bringing evidence of it to Brock.One of the founders of the world-class Hemlo gold mining site in northern Ontario, Bell and his wife, Brock alumna and geologist Angela Bell, have donated a number of core samples of ore mined from the camp to the University. They have also donated a number of documents – including photos, maps and reports – telling the story of the Hemlo deposit located about 350 kilometres east of Thunder Bay.Hemlo made headlines in the early 1980s when it was part of the largest mineral development in Ontario since the 1960s. David Bell helped discover three mines north of Lake Superior. The mines – David Bell, Golden Giant and Williams – opened in 1985 and produced close to 30 tonnes annually. The David Bell and Williams mines are still in operation by Teck Cominco.Donating the materials to Brock was a natural fit for the Bells, who live in St. Catharines.“We wanted to have it available for aspiring young geologists,” David Bell said.The materials will be a great teaching tool for the department, said Frank Fueten, professor and structural geologist in Brock’s Earth Sciences department.“This will give our students a chance to access a significant piece of Ontario’s geological history,” he said. read more

Twitter Joke Trial Defendant Found Guilty

first_imgYou know those signs that tell you not to joke about bomb threats in airport security lines? They’re no laughing matter. And apparently they extend into the Twittersphere–at least in the UK, where a 27-year-old accountant posted the following upon discovering that airport was closed,Crap! Robin Hood airport is closed. You’ve got a week and a bit to get your shit together otherwise I’m blowing the airport sky high!! Whoops. The accountant, one Paul Chambers, was arrested back in January following his “foolish prank.” He was convicted for the perceived bomb threat and fined £1,000 ($1,615) over the summer. In an followup hearing held this week, Judge Jacqueline Davies upheld the original ruling on all accounts. The judge read the offending tweet aloud, adding that Chambers surely knew that the joke might have been taken as a serious threat.last_img read more

Pellas plumbing feats

first_imgIt seems that modern plumbing is not so modern. A series of symposia on the on-going excavations undertaken by archaeologists in Pella, the birthplace of Alexander the Great, have revealed that Hellenistic-era Pella enjoyed plumbing and furnaces.The excavations in Pella have added to the findings of a dig in nearby Archontikon at Giannitsa. Whereas the recent finds in Pella have been from the post-Christian Hellenistic period, houses and domestic utensils have been found at Archontikon dating back 4,000 years to pre-historic Greece.Meanwhile, the island of Lemnos continues to provide archaeologists with further evidence that an advanced civilization was based at the present excavation site of Poliochhni.Archeologists have excavated a a quasi-Parliament, or “vouleuterion” in Poliochhni. Greek archaeological sources argue that four millennia before Christ and the ancient city of Troy, the “vouleuterion” in Poliochni  represented the first signs of the democratic impulse in Ancient Greece.

That’s a plus.”His positioning has improved as well. He hardly ever loses his position and he knows how to read the game and to anticipate what’s going to happen. He never loses his head. He seems more responsible, too, something which comes with time and age.”“Now he picks his moments [to join in attacks] much better,. Maybe he will only go forward once in a game now but he has a gift, something intangible that very few players have. It’s called goal-scoring instinct and that allows him to be in the right place at the right time. It happened against Roma, he went forward once and he scored.”After graduating from the B team in 1999, Puyol went on to make 593 appearances in all competitions for Barcelona and led them to three Champions League titles.
