I am excited for the great opportunities that are ahead for our organization.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew The Pelicans’ late-season success stemmed in part from Gentry’s integration of Nikola Mirotic into the starting rotation after a Feb. 1 trade that brought the fourth-year forward to New Orleans from Chicago.The vote of confidence in Gentry comes as the Pelicans ponder their approach to retaining two key free agents: Cousins and veteran point guard Rajon Rondo.Both players thrived last season under Gentry, and Rondo during the playoffs spoke highly of the way Gentry respects his players by giving them the latitude to play to their strengths and be who they are.Cousins was averaging 25.2 points and 12.9 rebounds before his injury. Rondo enjoyed his best production with New Orleans during the playoffs, when he averaged 10.3 points, 12.2 assists and 7.6 rebounds.Gentry sounded confident that the Pelicans were prepared to move aggressively to build on what they accomplished this season, even if the price is high.ADVERTISEMENT LATEST STORIES Steam emission over Taal’s main crater ‘steady’ for past 24 hours Volcano watch: Island fissures steaming, lake water receding Neymar to play vs. Austria; Fred injured in Brazil training Jury of 7 men, 5 women selected for Weinstein rape trial 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 Dave Chappelle donates P1 million to Taal relief operations Jiro Manio arrested for stabbing man in Marikina “He did a tremendous job last season,” Pelicans general manager Dell Demps said. “When we faced adversity, Alvin and his staff continually discovered ways to place the team in situations where we could be successful.”Gentry has gone 117-138 in three seasons, including this season’s playoffs, when the Pelicans swept Portland before losing a second-round series 4-1 to defending champion Golden State.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownNew Orleans missed the playoffs in Gentry’s first two seasons, during which the team dealt with a rash of injuries to key players.During this past season, Gentry had to help the Pelicans adapt to the loss of Cousins, who played a central role in a system that revolved around him and fellow All-Star big man Anthony Davis.

  • EU experts peg City Hall rehabilitation at US$4.3M

    first_img– National Trust cites higher figureThe European Union (EU) on Monday handed over a detailed restoration plan for the deteriorating City Hall. The work is estimated at US$4.3 million (GY$894 million), but the National Trust of Guyana has cited a high figure –G$1 billion.It is expected that work will be done on three building City Hall owns.Minister with responsibility for Culture, Dr George Norton, receiving the dossier from EU Ambassador Jernej VideticThe Comprehensive Restoration and Conservation Management Plan for City Hall came under a $64 million European Union- funded project which was formed out of collaboration between the Georgetown Mayor & City Council (M&CC) and the National Trust of Guyana.It has special focus on the physical and structural state of City Hall and the City Engineer’s Building.Minister with responsibility for Culture, Social Cohesion Minister Dr George Norton, formally received the dossier, which has several thousand pages. The document meticulously details City Hall’s restoration plan, and it is being seen as timely since the 1889 Gothic revival structure is falling apart.“The onus is on us to preserve and cherish all that it has to offer. When City Hall is restored to its breathtaking glory, we must never allow any of our other cites to deteriorate in such a manner ever again,” the minister appealed.A section of the deplorable condition of City HallCardinal International Development Director Andrew McLoughlin, who contributed to the restoration projection, has said that once the scheduled is followed, rehabilitation should be completed by 2020, and he estimated that it would cost around US$4.3 million to restore City Hall. It was, however, the National Trust Head, Nirvana Persaud, who said that when other costs are factored in, the figure could reach GY $1 billion. She once again appealed to local operatives, including the private sector, to support the restoration initiative.“We do not yet have funds to implement this plan. We have to work together to raise the funds that we need, and a lot of the material and expertise [is] all here,” she said.Meantime, Head of the EU Delegation in Guyana, Ambassador Jernej Videtic, observed that stakeholders should look towards correcting the errors that had led to the structure’s current state.“Now is not the time for blame-sharing and reliving the mistakes of the past, but the people in the driver’s seats have to take full responsibility, or City Hall will crumble if they don’t,” the EU Ambassador pointed out.The building has suffered much neglect over the years, even though millions of dollars have been allocated to facilitate repairs, including some $20 million in 2012.Town Clerk Royston King told the gathering that the City Council has made attempts to restore City Hall and other structures within Georgetown.Guyana Times understands that money could be sourced from Central Government, as information disclosed is that funding could be factored into the Culture Department’s 2019 budget as Dr. George Norton is moving to engage Cabinet on allocations for restoration. Minister of Communities, Ronald Bulkan, has received digital copies of the dossier. (Shemuel Fanfair)last_img read more

  • Uganda Cranes look to bounce back from last month’s draw when they host Lesotho on Saturday

    first_img Tags: 2019 AFCON qualifierLesothoUganda Cranes The Cranes drew 0-0 with Tanzania last month (file photo)AFCON 2019 Qualifier-Group LUganda vs LesothoMandela National Stadium, NambooleSaturday, 13th October 2018 @04:00pmNAMBOOLE – The Uganda Cranes will be hoping to bounce back from last month’s disappointing goalless draw with Tanzania, when they host Lesotho at Namboole on Saturday.The Cranes who were playing under Frenchman, Sebastian Desabre for the first time in an AFCON qualifier failed to click en route to the draw against the Taifah Stars over a month ago.However, Saturday’s fixture with Lesotho presents a chance to make amends and ensure Uganda strengthens their grip onto top spot in the group.Speaking to the press ahead of the game, Cranes coach Sebastian Desabre promised that his side will not be taking Lesotho lightly and that they will do all they can to try and get all three points on Saturday.“We shouldn’t under look Lesotho because they are a good team, said Desabre.“There is nothing like a bad team my players should note that”“Players should believe that they are going to win the match.“They should also be able to focus on the game to avoid making the same mistakes they did against Tanzania.Lesotho on the other hand go into the game full of confidence after accumulating two points from as many games so far.The Crocdiles head coach Moses Maliehe also promised that his side will give a good account of themselves as they try to get all three points.“We know how Uganda plays and have respect for them because they are top of the group at the moment, Said Maliehe.“However, we are on a mission that we hopefully shall accomplish.“We shall give a spirited fight in the two legs starting with this Saturday game.Match Facts: Both sides go into Saturday’s encounter unbeaten in their first two qualifiers. Uganda have won one and drawn the other while both of Lesotho’s games have ended in stalemates.This will be their third meeting in the AFCON qualifiers.The two played out a doubleheader in 2006 that ended with Uganda winning 3-0 on aggregate. The fixture at Namboole ended 3-0 while the return leg finished 0-0.The Cranes go into the game having not lost an AFCON qualifier since March 2016 (W3 D2). The last game they lost was the 1-0 defeat to Burkina Faso in Ouagadougou.At home, Desabre’s men have lost only one game (90 minutes) in their last 17 (W12 D4) AFCON qualifiers. The defeat came at the hands of Togo in October 2010.For Lesotho, they have won only one of their last 15 AFCON qualifier encounters (D5 L9), winning 2-1 at home to Seychelles in March 2016.On the road, the Crocodiles have lost all but two of their matches since 2006.

  • Rolex watch lost 20 years ago recovered by geocacher (and it still works!)

    first_imgA Rolex watch was found in Southern California by a geocacher 20 years after being lostThis guest post is written by Southern California geocacher, snowyisland. One sunny Saturday in Southern California, geocacher snowyisland went on a moderate hike to get some fresh air and log a few caches. In addition to the geocaches, she found one incredible piece of SWAG; a Rolex watch, twenty years after it was lost by the original owner. Here’s her story:The trail was very overgrown.On a Saturday in June, I went hiking along a side trail near Santa Monica in Will Rogers Park. I’d found many geocaches out there a month ago, so I returned to grab some neglected caches which had been dormant since 2016. This trail was very overgrown.On the very first cache I went searching for (GC6MM4Z Give Peace A Chance), I looked around for a good ten minutes before marking it as a DNF. I looked high and low and could not find the cache, but then I saw something shiny behind a tree. I crawled through the bushes to grab it and withdrew a Rolex watch! I thought It had to be fake. I noticed a name inscribed on the back so I put it in my backpack with the intent to research the name when I got home.A Rolex watch was found!Of course, right after that I spotted the geocache about ten yards from where I found the watch. I signed the log and continued my day logging the other neglected caches on the overgrown trail.When I returned home, I ran an internet search for the name inscribed on the back of the watch. I actually found a listing for a man living in Los Angeles with a matching name. When I called the number, I learned that the watch had been lost some 20 years earlier when the owner was helping to clear the overgrown trail (with a machete!). He said he’d been back to the trail more than ten times to search for his watch.“Peace” is a theme throughout caches in this areaI brought his watch to his home in Brentwood, Los Angeles, where his family was visiting for Father’s Day.  He had purchased the watch in Germany on a business trip 40 years prior. And now it was back in his hands after being gone for 20 years. And amazingly it still works! I should mention he is now 87 years old.A few of my friends have looked up the value of the Rolex and told me what it’s worth, but being able to reunite this gentleman with his watch on Father’s Day was a feeling of gratification like none I ever had before.I didn’t mention or try to explain geocaching to his family, although they mentioned it was odd for me to be on that trail. But without geocaching, the watch would still be ticking away under a tree. I mean this more than I ever have before: TFTC!Share with your Friends:More SharePrint Related18-Years-Old and 1800 Finds – A Teen Geocacher’s JourneyJuly 21, 2011In “Community”A Piece of California in Germany — Wellingtonie (GCXGEX) — Geocache of the WeekDecember 18, 2013In “Community”Unleash Your Inner Indiana — Raiders of the Lost Cache (GC2HN2H) — Geocache of the WeekAugust 14, 2013In “Community”last_img read more

  • Firefox 4 Trounces IE9 in Release Day Downloads

    first_imgA Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… The number of downloads, while very impressive, does not break the record for Firefox, set back in 2008 with the release of Firefox 3. Firefox 4 may be the last big release from Mozilla, as the company is moving to a rolling release schedule, much like Google’s Chrome.Firefox remains the world’s second most popular browser after IE, but both browsers have lost market share recently to Google Chrome.Chrome, which released the beta version its next version yesterday as well, has a reputation for being faster and less bloated than its competitors, and speed and bloat are both things tackled in Firefox 4.Of course, you can only make so much out of these first day download numbers. Downloading an updated version doesn’t mean it will become your browser-of-choice. More importantly, the web now has a couple of greatly improved browsers – good news for users and for developers. Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Tags:#news#web audrey watters Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… With over 7 million downloads since its release yesterday, Firefox 4 is out of the gate with some strong momentum, it seems.That number certainly trounces the statistics from the first day of Internet Explorer 9’s recent release, which hit a little over 2 million downloads. Unlike the launch of IE9, yesterday’s “download day” for Firefox 4 didn’t have a lot of media publicity pushing users to download the latest browser. That hasn’t seemed to stop users from upgrading.
