He likewise came up with an option for erring players to settle fines by performing community services.Marcial also assured Gilas Pilipinas’ coach Chot Reyes the availability of Jayson Castro, Kiefer Ravena, Kevin Alas, RR Pogoy, Matthew Wright, Allein Maliksi, Gabe Norwood, Calvin Abueva, Carl Bryan Cruz, Mac Belo, Troy Rosario, Jio Jalalon, Raymond Almazan, Japeth Aguilar and June Mar Fajardo to the national pool.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkReyes tweeted the names on Thursday night.

US warns citizens of robberies in Massy’s parking lot

Posted on by

first_imgThe United States (US) Embassy in Guyana is cautioning its citizens here about late-night robberies taking place in the parking lot of the Massy’s Grocery Store located in Providence, East Bank Demerara.An advisory issued by the embassy has said it has received multiple reports of such incidents, mostly occurring after 20:00h; and the Guyana Police Force (GPF) and the management of Massy’s have also confirmed the increase in criminal activity since July.“The embassy encourages US citizens to remain vigilant when travelling late at night, and to avoid dark secluded areas, as criminal activity is more prevalent in these situations”.Additionally, while acknowledging that the GPF has increased nightly patrols of the area, the embassy has recommended that “shoppers avoid displaying valuables when walking around the store or parking lot,” the advisory detailed.The embassy is urging US citizens that should any become victim of such an incident, they should comply with perpetrators’ instructions to avoid any serious threats.“The embassy security office suggests (that) if you become the victim of a crime, immediately comply with the assailant’s request; do not resist. And as soon as possible, find a place of safety and contact the Police by dialling 911,” it added.last_img read more

Child activist recommends immediate screening of all students

Posted on by

first_imgThreats at School of the NationOutspoken child-rights activist Nicole Cole has called for an immediate intervention into the situation at Nations Incorporated (School of the Nations) and is recommending that all the students at the private educational institution be screened for social and or psychological issues.Rights activist and social worker Nicole ColeCole’s recommendation comes in light of the Sunday shooting of the school’s principal Dr Brian O’Toole and prior threats posted on social media allegedly by a student. The Rights of the Child Commissioner said while security is vital, the school needs to get to the root of the problem.“The death threats are real because the principal is now recovering after being shot to the arm. So, we know that persons intended to harm him. And so parents need to protect their children by all means necessary. This will require them to be vigilant,” she told Guyana Times.But equally important, Cole, a trained social worker said that parents have a responsibility to check on their children and ensure that they are doing the right thing. “I used to police my son bag and parents could do simple things like that before they leave the vehicle or home.”Cole said parents who are licensed firearm holders, will have to now check to ensure that those firearms are not in close reach of their children. She argued that no child should be able to have easy access to their parents’ handgun, and extra caution should be taken now.“We don’t know as yet whose gun was used in the shooting of Dr O’Toole, whether it’s a student, an adult, or a student used a parent’s gun, or the gun used was from the streets; she pointed out, explaining that the social media post prior to the shooting tells a story.Cole was referring to threats which appeared on social media and directed to the school. The school’s administration made it clear that they were taking the threats which also named one teacher of the school, very seriously, when a meeting was held Sunday.The person(s) making the threats pointed out that there is a “plethora” of them who have been hurt and overlooked by the school and taken for granted. The threats also cautioned students about showing up for classes this week, and the picture of a gun was included in the post. Last week the school expelled a student who threatened to bring harm to students.“Because of this apparent break down, the trigger stems from something that happened in the environment. Look at the post that person made. Something happened to that student who used the word ‘overlooked’. So in other words, the student feel justice was not served.”Cole said based on her training, the post could be interpreted as a student that was unhappy about an action taken against him/her. “It could be more than one thing. Could it be that the student was overlooked for the position of a prefect, or overlooked in some other way? Whatever it is the word overlooked has many connotations. That in itself says that this student(s) also has self-esteem issues. That is why I am advocating for clinical assessment of all students. Everyone should have a screening. You screen for violence, for suicide, homicidal inclinations.”The school closed its doors on Monday while outlining that measures are being put in place following the shooting incident.In a management statement issued to parents, Nations said: “In light of recent unfortunate events; we wish to advise that our school will be closed today (January 28 2019) as we assess our current security measures with an objective to ensuring that our students, staff and premises are safe and secured.”They continued that “We are relieved to inform everyone that Dr O’Toole is stable and well. We once again assure you that our primary concern is for our students and staff and we will ensure that adequate measures are put in place”Police are said to be investigating the matter also.last_img read more

Renters should be able to puff in peace

first_imgThe anti-smoking movement is picking up serious momentum. ? Atlantic City, N.J., casinos are making their gambling floors smoke-free. The University of Mississippi has restricted smoking on campus to the parking lots. And Congress is upping the federal tax on cigarettes to $1 a pack. Maybe the drive is picking up a little too much momentum. Two California cities, Calabasas and Belmont, are considering banning smoking in ? apartments and condos. The bans would apply to new renters in buildings with 15 or more units. ?

Social Security benefits hike is lowest since ’04

Posted on by

first_imgBy Martin Crutsinger THE ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON – Come January, Social Security benefits for nearly 50 million Americans are going up 2.3 percent, the smallest increase in four years. It will mean an extra $24 per month in the average check, the government announced Wednesday. The cost of living adjustment means that the monthly benefit for the typical retired worker will go from $1,055 currently to $1,079 next year. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.The adjustment, announced by the Social Security Administration, will go to more than 54 million Americans. Nearly 50 million receive Social Security benefits and the rest get Supplemental Security Income payments aimed at helping the poor. The 2.3 percent increase is the smallest since a 2.1 percent rise in 2004. It compares to an increase of 3.3 percent last year and a jump of 4.1 percent in 2006, which had been the biggest advance in 15 years. The COLA is based on the change in consumer prices from the July-September quarter of this year compared with the same period last year. Benefit payments have been tied to inflation since 1975. Advocacy groups for the elderly said that the small increase announced Wednesday underscored the need to revamp the cost-of-living adjustment to better reflect prices paid by retired people, including the money they spend on health care. The Senior Citizens League said a study it has done showed that in eight key spending areas, people over the age of 65 have lost 40percent of their purchasing power since 2000, reflecting such factors as a doubling in the price of gasoline and home heating oil over that period. “Social Security is supposed to protect seniors in need – but with 5 million seniors below the poverty line, it’s clear the system is failing them,” said Shannon Benton, executive director for the league. The big jump for 2006 occurred because energy prices had soared in September of 2005, reflecting the impact of Hurricane Katrina. This year, however, energy prices have been coming down in recent months after having spiked in the spring. With oil prices surging this week to highs above $88 per barrel, analysts believe that consumers will get socked with higher gasoline prices and home heating oil costs in coming months, but those gains will come too late to influence the new cost-of-living adjustment. In addition, food prices and medical prices have been rising rapidly this year. But those gains have been offset somewhat by a moderation in categories that the elderly tend to buy less of such as computers, consumer electronics and clothing. Part of the Social Security increase will be eaten up by a rise in the cost of Medicare, the giant health-care program that covers the elderly and disabled. The government announced earlier this month that Medicare premiums will rise 3.1 percent next year or $2.50 to $96.40 per month. That is the lowest Medicare premium increase in six years. The average retired couple, both receiving Social Security benefits, will see their monthly check go from $1,722 to $1,761, an increase of $39.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Sequoia charter to train for life

Posted on by

first_imgSANTA CLARITA – When the school year comes to an end the doors to Redview Prep will close, only to reopen as Sequoia Charter School. Like Redview Prep, the new school will focus on students in grades 7-12 who need mental health services and extra support throughout the day in addition to their academics. A $270,000 state grant made the new charter possible. Students’ needs are varied. Some are in special education. Others suffer with social anxiety about being on large campuses. Some others lack motivation in school and need help to stay on track. “It’s all kinds of kids, and the bottom line is that they have something going on,” said Eran Zeevi, Redview Prep principal. “We’re taking a special interest in not only giving them academic excellence, but to prepare them as much as we can for post-high school,” he said. Some grant funds will go toward a computer lab, library and vans to transport the students around the area to participate in job fairs, community service projects and other experiences, Zeevi said. sue.doyle@dailynews.com (661)257-5254160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Hart Union High School District offices, the new charter anticipates an enrollment of 51 students, about twice as many attending the 9-year-old Redview Prep today. Administrators hope to attract students from nearby districts and private schools who need the support that smaller class sizes can bring. Admission involves an application process and interview with administrators. “We’re hoping to bring back some students from nonpublic schools and accepting some junior high students from Castaic who need that kind of environment,” said Leslie Crunelle, assistant superintendent of education services. Although the class schedule is still in the works, Zeevi said Sequoia students will have individual plans that will focus on education, career, independent living, self-advocacy and social development. During homeroom each morning, students will review these plans with their teachers and the actions they’re taking toward reaching them, complete with target dates. Students’ goals can range from learning how to open a checking account to enrolling in college classes and renting apartments. Zeevi said the purpose is to train students for life after high school and how to live independently. last_img read more

Simon Grayson can get Sunderland going in the right direction again, says agent

Posted on by

first_imgNew Sunderland manager Simon Grayson has got a great opportunity and can get the faltering club going in the right direction, says his agent Jamie Moralee.The relegated Black Cats announced the appointment of the former Preston boss on Thursday after takeover talks were halted by owner Ellis Short.Grayson, who has also managed the likes of Leeds United and Huddersfield Town, arrives at the Stadium of Light with plenty of work to do but Moralee believes he has shown his capabilities before.“He’s got a great opportunity at Sunderland,” he said on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast.“I think we all know that the club has had some recent issues and you have just got to go to the training ground, and the main stadium, and you see the magnitude of the football club is just geared up for the Premier League.“Simon is one that has gone into football clubs, whether it be Leeds, Huddersfield or Preston, they all seem to be, now, moving in the right direction again.“I think that he can really get Sunderland going again and he’s a real good appointment.”Sunderland have been faltering for a number of years and their seemingly inevitable relegation from the Premier League was finally confirmed last season under the stewardship of David Moyes.On Grayson’s immediate to-do list is to assemble a capable squad of players but Moralee insists he is ready for the challenge ahead.“When he took Leeds they were just out of receivership – going through similar problems with Ken Bates – and then the same at Preston,” he added.“I think that the mentality issue is obviously key but they were players that have all walked out the door so they are not there anymore.“I think he’s got about six or seven players at the moment that he’s got to work with so I think the players that he’s going to bring in will be Simon Grayson players.“They will be coming in with new ideas, new challenges, and coming in ready to hit the ground running.“Literally he’s going to be assembling a brand new squad, over the last eight months, that he believes, by game one, will be his team and ready to show the fans what they can do – which is hard work and 100 per cent, something that is a given when you play under Simon Grayson.”last_img read more

Reeling Calpine Corp. faces delisting by SEC

Posted on by

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBlues bury Kings early with four first-period goals The company has been reeling since it lost a key court battle just before Thanksgiving. A Delaware judge ruled that Calpine improperly spent $313 million that had been held in escrow for lenders and last week ordered the company to repay the money, plus interest, by Jan. 22. The requirement threatens to create a cash crunch so severe that management has acknowledged the company might seek refuge in bankruptcy court. Calpine hopes to overturn the order with an appeal to the Delaware Supreme Court. Since the Delaware judge first ruled against the company Nov. 22, Calpine’s shares have plunged below 30 cents – a nearly 90 percent decline that prompted the New York Stock Exchange to cut its ties with the San Jose-based company. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

SAN FRANCISCO – The New York Stock Exchange said Monday that it plans to delist Calpine Corp. in a move reflecting Wall Street’s dismay as the debt-plagued power merchant considers bankruptcy. The decision represents the investment community’s latest snub of a company whose shares have been eroding as its debts and losses mount. Calpine lost its spot in the Standard & Poor’s 500 late last week after its market value shriveled to less than $310 million – the lowest in the blue-chip stock index. The S&P’s rebuff followed Calpine’s ouster of its chief executive officer and chief financial officer. last_img read more
