Ceres, Global blank foes

first_imgBACOLOD CITY—It was one of those nights when Ceres-Negros couldn’t seem to do anything wrong, playing with style and substance and scoring some highlight-reel worthy goals.The 5-0 victory over Singapore side Tampines Rovers, fashioned out before a crowd of close to 10,000 Tuesday night at Panaad Stadium, was remarkable not just because of the scoreline against one of the more established clubs in the Asean region but also because four of the goals that could go down as one of the finest in the history of the tournament.ADVERTISEMENT Global set the stage for a glorious night for Filipino clubs in the continental competition as it turned back Boeung Ket Angkor of Cambodia, 2-0, to gain top spot in Group F in Phnom Penh.Paul Mulders scored both of Global’s goals in each half with the opener coming in the fifth minute when he volleyed from just outside the box.The former Filipino international scored the second goal from the penalty spot, after Shu Sasaki was fouled inside the box to seal a second straight win for Global.What made the feat even more remarkable for the Filipino clubs is the fact that the national league has yet to start, while all other domestic competitions in Southeast Asia are in full swing, allowing the other Asean clubs to keep their competitive edge.The fans in Bacolod who braved the early evening drizzle hardly warmed their seats when new acquisition Iain Ramsay struck a sublime goal just seconds into the match.Ramsay’s strike set the tone to a glorious evening for the home side. Maranon doubled the lead in the 24th minute by tapping home into an empty net after an error by Tampines goal keeper Izwan Mahbud.ADVERTISEMENT Marcos monument beside Aquino’s stirs Tarlac town China counts sharp rise in coronavirus cases, 2 in Beijing The performance left national coach Thomas Dooley in awe, even as he marveled at the form of some of the Azkals, who struggled in the AFF Suzuki Cup last year in Bulacan.“They’re fit, they’re strong and they fight for each other,” said Dooley, who watched the match along with Philippine Football Federation president Mariano Araneta, in praising Ceres.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSEnd of his agony?

Brathwaite reported to ICC for suspect bowling

first_imgLONDON, England (CMC): West Indies part-time off-spinner Kraigg Brathwaite has been reported to the International Cricket Council (ICC) for having a suspect bowling action, following the Caribbean side’s humbling innings and 209-run defeat at Edgbaston on Saturday. The Barbadian, the team vice-captain and first-choice opener, sent down six overs during England’s first innings of 514 for eight declared, finishing wicket-less. The ICC said yesterday that the match officials report “cited concerns about the legality of the 24-year-old’s bowling action”. “Brathwaite’s bowling action will now be scrutinised further under the ICC process relating to suspected illegal bowling actions reported in Tests, ODIs (One Day Internationals) and T20Is (Twenty20 Internationals),” the ICC said. According to ICC regulations, Brathwaite will now be required to undergo testing within 14 days, but will be allowed to continue bowling until the test results are returned. Brathwaite has rarely had a heavy workload in his 38 Tests, but has a best of six for 29 against Sri Lanka in Colombo two years ago.last_img read more

Miss Universe 2017 to be crowned Sunday evening

first_imgThe highly-anticipated Miss Universe Pageant is set for Sunday evening in the Philippines, and the delegates definitely created an impression during the preliminary competition on Wednesday evening.The delegates competed in the swimwear and evening gown preliminary competitions. Before the competitions, however, the delegates introduced themselves to the panel of judges and the audience.Guyana’s representative at the pageant, Soyini Fraser is making sure she uses every possible opportunity to make sure Guyana is spotted on the international stage.At the preliminaries, she sported a Papillon Dezign evening gown created by US designer Richard Petit. For the swimwear contest, she used a Yamamay design complemented with shoes by Chinese Laundry. She also showcased her national costume titled “The Coconut Queen”, much to the amusement of the judges and audience. The Guyanese beauty will be keeping her fingers crossed to be named in the top 12 vying for the title of Miss Universe 2017. Before getting there, she would have had to score big in the three preliminary competitions among the 86 other delegates.She is optimistic of doing well. However, the delegates from Venezuela, Ukraine, the Dominican Republic, Colombia, Panama, Indonesia, Philippines, France, Australia and Thailand are among the top contenders for the title.The grand finale, which is slated to be aired on Sunday evening on Fox Network, is expected to be spectacular. TVG-28 will be providing live broadcast of the pageant from 20:00h.The judges for the evening include Miss Universe 1993 Dayanara Torres, Miss Universe 1994 Sushmita Sen, Miss Universe 2007 Riyo Mori, and Miss Universe 2011 Leila Lopes. The others include Mickey Boardman, the editorial director of fashion and pop-culture magazine, PAPER; TV star and former model Cynthia Bailey; and Emmy and Tony award-winning producer and activist Francine LeFrak.The patrons will be entertained by Grammy award-winning R&B group Boyz II Men. The group is known for its 90s hits “End of the Road”; “One Sweet Day”; and “I’ll Make Love To You”. They will be joined by rapper Flo Rida at the coronation set for the SM Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City.last_img read more

It boggles my mind – Granger gives himself an ‘A’ Grade, but he deserves…

first_imgPresident Granger gave himself and his A Partnership for National Unity/Alliance For Change (APNU/AFC) government an ‘A’ grade. People are shaking their heads, wondering what Granger has been smoking because for most of them Granger deserves a resounding ‘F’. Corruption is at an all-time high, the cost of living is on the rise, businesses and the economy are stagnated, the dollar is depreciating, US foreign currency is in short supply, more people have lost their jobs in the last two years than in any other two-year period, sugar workers have had no wage increase for two years, sugar estates are closing, rice is on the decline, the Guyana Power and Light (GPL) is collapsing, education, health and housing are sliding backwards, more than 200 taxes have been increased, Value Added Tax (VAT) has been extended to food items, health, education, water and electricity, crime is on a continuous upward spiral, flooding is more intense and more frequent, the Constitution and the Judiciary are under attack, the Private Sector Commission has lost confidence in the Government and more and more the Government is shifting towards authoritarianism.APNU/AFC made eliminating corruption a major campaign promise. After almost two years, they have taken corruption to a shameful, unimaginable level where even some of its staunchest supporters are reeling in embarrassment and repulsion. APNU/AFC are even afraid to activate the Public Procurement Commission so it pays its members about $6 million per month to stay quiet. When it comes to fighting corruption, Granger and APNU/AFC deserve a BIG FAT ‘F’.The APNU/AFC, Granger, Nagamootoo and others claimed that more than $28 billion was lost through the People’s Progressive Party’s (PPP) contract corruption. Now people are asking them where is the $56 billion that should have been saved from these corrupt transactions since APNU/AFC has been in government. It is pellucidly clear that 2015-2016 ranks as the most corrupt two years in our 50-year independent history. APNU/AFC has amassed more than one major corrupt deal per month and it might be worse. Recently, the Public Accounts Committee found that more than 70 contracts in 2015 in Region Six (Upper Corentyne-Berbice) were awarded to the highest bidders with no justification.From the handing out of contracts for forensic audits, to their friends and donors, the repulsive $15 million per month house they rented as a medical warehouse, the incredible $1 billion higher bid awarded for the GPL contract, to the Parking Meter Contract; the corruption stench has infuriated even their most staunch supporters. The population is today reeling from the Parking Meter Contract, one of the worst corrupt deals in Guyana’s history. APNU/AFC belatedly and timidly distancing themselves from this “Contract from hell” is just a futile effort to untangle themselves from complicity in a criminal deal.Granger, Williams, Harmon, Trotman, Ramjattan, Nagamootoo and the rest of the Cabinet are fully complicit because they knew of the horrendous Parking Meter Contract from the beginning. Not just because Oscar Clarke played a major role, but because they reviewed the Contract in August 2016 with in-depth reviews from the Finance Ministry and the Attorney General which identified various untenable and “terror” clauses. Long before the citizens knew that this was a “Contract from hell”, APNU/AFC knew. They clearly were complicit in foisting this Contract down the throats of our people. Besides, the parking meters could not have been implemented without Bulkan’s approval of the By-laws which the Office of the Presidency gazetted. This is a Mayor and City Council contract, but it is fully owned by Granger and APNU/AFC. That is why they rejected Irfaan Ali’s motion to debate the Contract in Parliament because they feared exposure.Their ‘F’ grade is deserving because they had campaigned on super-salaries and inflated pensions for Jagdeo and Ramotar and their ministers. Nagamootoo cried that the PPP ministers were living Cadillac lifestyles in a ‘donkey cart’ economy. They claimed that Jagdeo was the highest paid president in the world and many people believed them. Then what did they do the first opportunity in government? They increased their salaries between 50 and 100 per cent. They increased their fleet with more luxurious and expensive vehicles and expended enormous sums of money to enhance their homes and offices.Column length limitation does not permit me to detail how much APNU/AFC has reversed Guyana’s upward trajectory. People are dismayed and hope is once again dissipating. Sugar workers, rice farmers, other farmers, miners and foresters, vendors, business people and their families give APNU/AFC an ‘F’. Teachers and public servants feel betrayed. All Guyanese are suffocating from the high cost of living from rising prices and burdensome taxes. Personal debts are beginning to take a toll on people’s lives while the national debt is rapidly increasing. Granger’s job creation magic is to sell sugar cake, plantain chips and cook-up. No ands, ifs and buts, APNU/AFC scores a BIG FAT ‘F’.Send comments to doc_ram@hotmail.com and check out my fb page at ramsammypl@gmail.comlast_img read more
