  • Tenacious Alaska defense shuts down Columbian guards

    first_img“When you got an import like Tony who can go for 40 any night, it makes everything easier for everybody. He spreads the floor, we’re making a lot of extra passes, so when you got an import and they can really score the ball, I’m looking to make plays and make people better when the import comes on.”Despite the Aces’ dominating performance, Banchero knows that it’s still early in the conference for them to step on the brakes.“Obviously, there are still things that we need to correct. We’ll go watch film on Monday because we got TNT before the All-Star break and they’re gonna be tough. They got a bunch of guys so it will be a good test for us,” he said.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 Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Volcano watch: Island fissures steaming, lake water receding Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Meralco sends NLEX to 0-3 hole behind Newsome’s 30 Photo by Tristan Tamayo/ INQUIRER.netMore than the offense, it was Alaska’s defense which allowed it to break away from Columbian Dyip, 134-103, on Friday for its second straight victory in the 2018 PBA Commissioner’s Cup.“I think it was our defense, not our offense, that really gave us this win tonight,” said Chris Banchero.ADVERTISEMENT Jo Koy draws ire for cutting through Cebu City traffic with ‘wang-wang’ Scientists seek rare species survivors amid Australia flames The fourth-year guard helped in shutting down the Aces’ backcourt counterparts as Rashawn McCarthy, Jerramy King, and Reden Celda shoot a paltry 10-of-32 clip from the field.“They were playing really well.

    first_imgDaniel O’Donnell has said he will keep his cards closer to his chestfrom BBC bosses after he was handed the dance he didn’t want lastweekend on Strictly Come Dancing.Although the Kincasslagh man came sailing through the show, the 53 yearold star says he is going to play it cuter with TV producers.“I’ll never tell the truth again because the Charleston was the firstdance I got after I told them I wasn’t looking forward to it,” he toldHighland Radio. Daniel said his dance partner Kristina Rihanoff was in complete shockwhen their name was called out first to go through in Sunday night’sresults show.“Kristina has said to me that they always put her through last. Whenour names were called out first, she just couldn’t believe it.“She said to me ‘they must love you on the BBC because they didn’tleave it until last. But we know it’s in no particular order,” headdd.He admitted that he was ‘panting like a racehorse’ when he finishedlast Saturday night’s show. “I was completely out of breath. I couldn’t speak. I was just panting,I was like a horse after doing Becher’s Brook and all the things inthe Grand National,” he said.Daniel said he was heartbroken to see former Olympic sprinter IwanThomas and partner Ola Jordan voted off the show.“That is the rough old part of the show. Iwan was the fit person I metand we build up a friendship. We will certainly keep in touch with alot of the people we met on the show,” he added.But despite his constant work on the dance floor, Daniel admits thathe is not finding the dancing any easier.“Every week I think I’m never going to be able to do this. And thenKristina help me and we dance through it. “Some of them (the other contestants) are fantastic and are adaptingvery well. I’m pulling along in the middle but I might get better. Butwhen I’m out in the floor Im enjoying it,” he added.DANIEL TO PLAY THE ‘STRICTLY GAME’ TO SURVIVE ON BBC SHOW was last modified: October 5th, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:BBCdaniel o’donnelldonegalStrictly Come Dancinglast_img read more

  • Vipers SC promotes three youngstars as pre-seasons preps continue

    first_imgRichard Basangwa is one of the three players that have been promoted. (PHOTO/Vipers SC)KITENDE – As Vipers continue to strengthen their squad ahead of the upcoming StarTimes Uganda Premier League, they have promoted three youngsters to the senior team.The youngsters in question are Karim Watambala, striker Richard Basangwa and defender Jacob Okao.They were all part of the St Mary’s Secondary School team which captured the 2019 Copa Coca Cola cup in Jinja, defeating Jinja S.S 3-1 in the final.All three of them were also impressive during the recently concluded Fufa Juniors League where the Venoms finished second in the treble group behind KCCA Soccer Academy.They will be training with the senior team as head coach Nam Ouma monitors their progress.The graduation of the trio brings the number of academy players who have joined the senior team in the past seven months to five.The other two are Aziz Kayondo and Bobosi Byaruhanga who were enlisted during the January mid-season registration of players.Vipers academy production has been impressive in the past, seeing the emergence of players like Farouk Miya, Keziron Kizito, Dan Birikwalira, Bashir Asiku and Geoffrey Wassa among others.The Venoms have also signed three players already in the offseason with Paul Willa, Siraj Ssentamu and Allan Kayiwa signing long-term deals.Ssentamu is one of Vipers’s new signings.Vipers are bidding to bounce back from a disappointing 2018/19 season.The Venoms came into last season as the defending league champions and finalist in the Uganda Cup but could not replicate such form.Representing Uganda in the CAF Champions league, the Venoms were eliminated at the second round of qualification and hence dropped to the Confederation Cup. While there, they also failed to make it to the Group stages as they fell immediately.In the League, they came second to KCCA FC while a humiliating exit to then-Big League side, Proline FC, ended their Uganda Cup campaign at the quarter-final stage.Comments Tags: Aziz KayondoBashir AsikuBobosi ByaruhangaDan BirikwaliraFarouk MiyaGeoffrey WassaJacob OkaoKarim WatambalaKeziron KizitoRichard Basangwatopvipers sclast_img read more

  • DD Motoring: Saying goodbye to Manus Kelly

    first_imgWhen people start their conversation by recalling exactly where and what they with doing when they first heard the news that Manus Kelly lost his life in a rallying incident at the weekend, it gives you just an idea of how much this Glenswilly man was thought of in his native county.He seemed to have superstar status even from people that only knew him to see as everyone has become engulfed in the tide of sorrow and pain that spread from the Fanad peninsula as the word filtered back that the number one seeded driver, Manus Kelly, crashed out of the three-day rally on Sunday afternoon.Nightmare Advertisement Since then some of us are still hoping that we are in the middle of a nightmare waiting to wake up in a cold sweat and hope that this was just a terrible, terrible dream.Trying to deal with this, we scroll our way back through our phones hopeful that we’ll find a better place and time where we have memories and pictures of Mandy where he might have stood in and posed for a selfie at a time that never would be in so much contrast to what we are going through this week.The late Manus Kelly pictured at the Top of Breenagh with Glenswilly in the background. Photo Brian McDaid.Even a reply to a text or a post on social media with a couple of hands clapping emojis sent from Mandy is now a keepsake.For me, it’s a simple still from a video that has changed in importance since the weekend’s events. Advertisement Last SaluteOn Wednesday evening last, in the middle of one of the towns traffic jams, there was Mandy stuck in the middle in his Applegreen Rally car coming down the back road after receiving sponsorship from Cill an Óir Complex at the top of Glencar.Bemused with the car standing out in the crowd, I decided to video Mandy on my phone as his Hyundai rumbled down past.Since the events unfolded on Sunday, I have looked at a lot of photos of Mandy down through the years but, it was this video clip that drew me in.I have looked at the video clip a lot of times, I have slowed it down and found a silhouette of the outline of a hand giving me a “thumbs up salute” as he sailed down past the Tin Tai Restaurant. The last thumbs up from the late Mandy Kelly pictured in a traffic jam on the Back Rd in Letterkenny in his rally car. Photo By Brian McDaid.Even though I covered the rally all weekend and have loads of photos, I hadn’t really seen Mandy other than through the lens of my camera when he was focused on the road as he took part in the rally.That thumps up wave out the window on the Wednesday evening before the rally was Mandy’s last goodbye to me.The next time I was to see Mandy was sadly on Monday evening just feet away at the foot of the back road again where you could hear a pin drop as a Garda motorbike outrider cleared the traffic to lead Mandy out Ballymacool for the very last time as his remains headed home to the Glen.RIP MANUS “MANDY” KELLY 1978-2019 DD Motoring: Saying goodbye to Manus Kelly was last modified: June 28th, 2019 by Brian McDaidShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Manus Kellymotoringlast_img read more

  • Grading every Warriors draft pick in Joe Lacob Era

    first_imgWill the Warriors be able to add a rotation player during the NBA Draft on Thursday? Considering their draft history during the Joe Lacob Era, it’s probably a flip of the coin.Since Lacob’s regime first assumed control of the Warriors draft in 2011, they’ve batted around .500 with their picks, with a couple of historic grand slam selections in Klay Thompson and Draymond Green.The Warriors have also hit on half of the four picks they’ve purchased from other teams on draft night under Lacob.Y …last_img read more

  • Stupid Evolution Quote of the Week:  The Evolution of Shopper’s Arm

    first_imgThis week’s prize goes to the Society for Experimental Biology, which, according to EurekAlert, said this in a press release:The next time you are struggling to carry your bags home from the supermarket just remember that this could, in fact, be the reason you are able to walk upright on two legs at all!  How we have evolved to walk on two legs remains a fundamental but, as yet, unresolved question for scientists.  A popular explanation is that it is our ability to carry objects, particularly children, which forced early hominins onto two legs.  Dr Johanna Watson (University of Manchester) will present work supporting this theory on Saturday 31st March 2007 at the Society for Experimental Biology’s Annual Meeting in Glasgow….    Results indicated that when carrying an evenly spread load humans are actually more efficient at carrying than most mammals but carrying awkward loads, such as an infant on one side of the body, uses much more energy.  However this sort of carrying would have been inevitable once early hominins lost the ability to cling on with their feet.  “The high energetic cost of carrying an asymmetric load, suggests that infant carrying would need to generate significant benefits elsewhere in order to be selected for,’ says Dr Watson.This idea raises some follow-up questions not answered in the press release.  Don’t monkeys do quite well carrying their young?  Wouldn’t evolution fix its mistake?  Why is this still a fundamental question?  Why is it still unresolved?  How could tests with humans carrying dumbbells, or computer models of alleged hominids, provide any confidence in explaining unobservable historical events?  If evolution is so versatile and inevitable, why isn’t it helping us carry our shopping bags now?  Is this hypothesis claiming that the loss of clinging feet and the need for carrying infants was sufficient to generate significant benefits elsewhere, like big brains, supermarkets and Societies for Experimental Biology?  If so, and reason was only a by-product of an evolutionary trade-off, how could the Society know this?Follow this line of reasoning far enough, and supermarkets arose by natural selection.  It would be religious to claim intelligent design had anything to do with the origin of paper and shopping carts.  How about a Society for Real Biology for a change.(Visited 9 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more
