Wright credits Gilas guards for lights out shooting in win over Vietnam

SC rules in favor of Espinosa, orders promoter heirs to pay boxing legend “I guess we did show that we don’t need to rely on a naturalized player and we’ll still dominate the tournament with just our locals,” he said.Still, having Blatche on the rotation is another thing, and Wright thinks that Gilas should not take things for granted as it looks to close things out against Indonesia on Thursday.“It’s gonna be a dogfight,” he said of Indonesia, which will be bannered by naturalized import Jamarr Johnson, Indonesian-American forward Arki Wisnu, and veteran playmaker Mario Wuysang.“I know Jamarr Johnson is going to be ready to play. This will be his second game, so he’ll definitely beat us with is motor. But we’re hitting our stride lately. Everybody has confidence on our team and we’ll do what we’ve been doing for the past week.”ADVERTISEMENT The Fil-Canadian rookie owed his stellar shooting to his teammates Terrence Romeo and Jayson Castro.“Those guys make my job so easy. Terrence and Jayson found me, they hit me in stride, hit me with momentum,” he said. “Having great passers like that makes my job so much easier. I can’t take all the credit for that.

PSG part company with coach Laurent Blanc

first_imgFormer Sevilla coach Unai Emery is tipped as the favourite to take over from Blanc having guided the Spanish side to three successive Europa League titles.Blanc arrived at PSG in 2013 and won the domestic treble in each of his last two seasons with the club. But it was his failure to make substantial progress in the Champions League that proved his undoing.The former France defender, a World Cup winner in 1998, took over PSG after after two years in charge of the French national side and had signed a two-year extension with the club in February.In a statement PSG said the two parties had amicably reached an agreement that “protects the interests” of both Blanc and the club.“As we embark on a new chapter in the development of the club, I would like to thank Laurent Blanc for everything he has achieved over the last three years, both in terms of the playing style and results,” Qatari club owner Nasser al-Khelaifi said.“I wish him the best for his future challenges.”Khelaifi had hinted earlier this month that Blanc’s time was up.“The players, the coach, the management, we need turnover, a new cycle,” he told the Le Parisien newspaper.Khelaifi was particularly unimpressed with the limp manner PSG lost to Manchester City in the Champions League this season.“This elimination is the worst moment since I came to Paris,” he said of that 3-2 aggregate defeat in April.According to Spanish media, Emery asked to terminate his contract with Sevilla after receiving an offer from PSG that was “too good to refuse”.Emery has a wealth of coaching experience including Valencia, Spartak Moscow and Almeria, although his only silverware has been with Sevilla.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Paris Saint-Germain have parted ways with French coach Laurent Blanc.PHOTO/AFPPARIS, France, June 27 – Laurent Blanc left his role as Paris Saint-Germain coach on Monday, the French Ligue 1 champions announced, without revealing any further financial details.French sports daily L’Equipe had said on Thursday that Blanc would pocket 22 million euros as part of his severance package.last_img read more

Lawsuit targets toymakers, stores

first_imgLos Angeles-based toy giant Mattel said the attorney general’s involvement would help steer the toy industry toward stronger safety standards. “Mattel expected this development and believes that the attorney general’s assumption of this case will be beneficial to all parties,” the company said in a statement. “The use of paint with impermissible levels of lead by certain subcontractors was a clear violation of the company’s quality and safety standards.” Under Proposition 65 – known as the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 – businesses cannot expose individuals to hazardous chemicals without posting a clear warning. Under that law, 75 percent of the punitive damages would go to the Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment, the agency that administers Proposition 65. The rest would go to the Attorney General’s Office. “We have no expectation or goal” on how much money the companies might have to pay, said Tim Sullivan, a deputy attorney general. “We’re doing this to stop it from happening again. Penalties are part of the deterrent.” Among the companies named in the lawsuit are Mattel, Fisher-Price, Toys R Us, Wal-Mart, Target, Sears, KB Toys, Costco Wholesale, Eveready Battery Company, Kmart and Marvel Entertainment.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREStriving toward a more perfect me: Doug McIntyre Brown and Delgadillo filed the lawsuit at the Alameda County Superior Court. It focuses on safety improvements but also seeks financial penalties. “Companies must take every reasonable step to assure that the products they handle are safe for children and their families and fully comply with the laws of California,” Brown said in a statement. “Despite the lengthening global supply chain, every company that does business in this state must follow the law and protect consumers from lead and other toxic materials.” The lawsuit contends that companies knowingly exposed individuals to lead and did not provide warnings about the risks. Lead is known to cause cancer and reproductive harm, as well as other effects, such as learning disabilities in children. The lawsuit seeks to force manufacturers and retailers to adopt procedures for inspecting products to make sure they are safe. There is a statutory penalty of up to $2,500 for each item sold, officials said, though it is unlikely to reach that level. SACRAMENTO – Attorney General Jerry Brown and Los Angeles City Attorney Rocky Delgadillo on Monday sued 20 toymakers and stores – including Mattel and Toys R Us – accusing them of knowingly manufacturing or selling toys with illegal and dangerous levels of lead. The news follows major recalls of toys, lunchboxes, children’s jewelry and other goods in the past year by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission in Washington. And it comes just as consumers start gearing up for the holiday-shopping season. Officials with Mattel, the chief defendant in the suit, said the action was expected and predicted that it would lead to more stringent safety standards. Because of the sheer size of the California market, lawsuits and regulations tend to have national repercussions. last_img read more

Juventus deal for Blaise Matuidi in doubt – Chelsea or Man United to pounce?

first_imgJuventus’ move for Blaise Matuidi is stalling due to the player’s salary demands.The Italian champions have agreed a fee of around £21m with Paris Saint-Germain for the midfielder and are now in contract talks with him.However, according to L’Equipe, negotiations have hit a brick wall due to the France international’s wages.Currently Matuidi earns around £10.3m-a-year by playing for PSG, but Juventus simply cannot match that offer.The Serie A side are hoping to reach a compromise with the 29-year-old in the coming days or else they will pursue other targets.Juventus’ failure to get a deal for Matuidi over the line could allow Chelsea and Manchester United, who have been linked with the Frenchman this summer, to swoop in.

‘No player is the bigger than the club’ – Barcelona president on Neymar

first_imgBarcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu has said the Catalan giants were in a win-win situation whether Neymar ended up staying or leaving the Nou Camp this summer and insisted “no player is bigger than the club”.Speaking publicly for the first time since Neymar quit Barca last week in a world-record 222 million euros (£200.6million) transfer to Paris St Germain, Bartomeu also said the Blaugrana would invest their windfall with “sense, rigour and calmness”.He said at the World Congress of FC Barcelona Supporters Clubs on Monday: “When doubts about him staying began, we were all calm because whatever his decision, it was good for Barca.“If he remained, we kept an exceptional player. And if he left then the whole of his buyout clause would have to be paid, which gives us the money to guarantee that we can sign new and competitive players.“Neymar has formed part of our club and of our success over the past four years, but he is now history.“It’s been his decision. We did everything in our hands to try and get him to stay – the directors, the players and the coaches.“Everything has a limit and no player is bigger than Barca. No individual interests can take precedence over the interests of the club.”Bartomeu also confirmed Barca had passed details of Neymar’s blockbusting transfer on to UEFA because “we are opposed to the artificial inflation of the football market and because we want to protect football and make it sustainable”.Neymar joined Barca from Santos in 2013 and helped the club win a host of honours, including two LaLiga titles and the Champions League, whilst forming the devastating ‘MSN’ strikeforce with Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez.However, the 25-year-old decided to seek pastures new and last Thursday became the most expensive player of all time after joining PSG on a five-year contract, which will reportedly see him earn 30m euros (£27m) net per year, or around 575,000 euros (£520,000) each week after tax.Neymar – who was under contract until 2021 with Barca – has insisted it was ambition and not the lure of riches that convinced him to swap the Nou Camp for the Parc des Princes, but whatever the Brazilian’s reasons, Bartomeu felt matters could have been conducted in a different fashion.He said: “Neymar has taken the decision to go, but the way of doing so hasn’t been the best, we would have liked more clarity on his part.“They are not the ways of a player who defends our colours. Values are important for us.”Barca have been relatively quiet in the transfer market so far this summer, bringing in defender Nelson Semedo from Benfica and activating a buy-back clause that saw Gerard Deulofeu return from Everton.However, they have been linked with a host of players, including Liverpool playmaker Philippe Coutinho and Borussia Dortmund forward Ousmane Dembele, and the unexpected departure of Neymar has left a sizeable hole in new coach Ernesto Valverde’s side.Bartomeu confirmed they are looking for reinforcements, but insisted they would do so with prudence.He said: “What will we do with 222 million euros? It’s the question everyone is asking.“We’ll administer the money with sense, rigour and calmness. We will act responsibly, knowing that we have the money to invest in the team, buying new players and expanding our assets.“This year we will no longer be talking about the trident (Neymar, Messi and Suarez), we will be talking about team. We will bring in players. The first has been Semedo but evidently more will come.” 1 Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu last_img read more

DONEGAL CHEF OWES ME €190,000, CLAIMS EX-WIFE OF DEF LEPPARD STAR

first_imgTOP DONEGAL chef Conrad Gallagher is refusing to comment on claims he owes almost €190,000 to an ex-girlfriend.Karla Elliott – the ex-wife of Def Leppard singer Joe Elliott – claims she is broke and has asked Gallagher to pay back a IR£150,000 loan she gave him back in 2000.Gallagher has two restaurants in Ireland, having left debts behind in two other countries. When Karla’s beauty salon business went bust in 2009, she bombarded the Letterkenny man with emails demanding he pay her back.“I am desperately in need of my money back. I helped you in your time of need,” she begged.A few months later another email said: “I’m in the middle of writing a book….and all the memories of my life are reminding me of how unfair it is that you can feed your daughter and I can’t (feed mine).”Gallagher has since refused to hand over the money to Karla, his former fiancee. This is despite admitting that he received IR£150,000 (€190,000) from her during a High Court hearing in 2000.DONEGAL CHEF OWES ME €190,000, CLAIMS EX-WIFE OF DEF LEPPARD STAR was last modified: January 30th, 2011 by gregShare 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)last_img read more

€34m announced for Donegal roads project in 2019

first_imgMore than €34million is to be spent on road projects in Donegal next year it was announced on Friday evening. More than 50 projects involving major and minor road improvements, road realignments, new pavements, lighting and winter maintenance was announced by Minister Joe McHugh.“This €34million is a really significant investment on the roads in Donegal and it comes on the back of unparalleled Government support for major infrastructure projects across the county,” Minister McHugh said. “Work on the N56 around Mountcharles and the Gweebarra bends and work on the Blue Banks were massive for a number of reasons – not least for safety, for commuters and for opening up regions along the Wild Atlantic Way and helping to make it easier to connect tourists.“Now we are seeing more money being pumped into the roads in the county with big investment planned already for 2019 through Transport Infrastructure Ireland and the County Council,” he said.More than €2.8million will be spent on four projects on the N14 at Tullyrap, N15 at the Corcam Bends, Cappry Junction and McGroary’s Brae.€9million was also approved for pavement schemes in the county. Minister McHugh added. “It means better quality, safer roads. It means jobs for construction teams and contractors and all the benefits they bring to local communities. It means better and safer journeys and reduced journey times.“There are obviously big-ticket projects in the €34million that has been allocated but there are also plenty of smaller schemes which will real differences to the local communities.“Whether it’s good quality footpaths, lighting or just general winter maintenance. It all adds up to a serious investment in the county.”€34m announced for Donegal roads project in 2019 was last modified: December 24th, 2018 by Shaun KeenanShare 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:donegal roadsMinister McHughroad maintenanceroad upgraderoad upgradeslast_img read more
