Scientists seek rare species survivors amid Australia flames Truck driver killed in Davao del Sur road accidentcenter_img Maybe the Cleveland Cavaliers, starting from the middle of the pack in the East, just have too big a hill to climb, even with LeBron James carrying them.Or perhaps none of that matters, and the NBA is headed toward Round 4 of its reigning rivalry.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 crownThe postseason opens Saturday and it’s far from a guarantee it ends with a record fourth straight NBA Finals matchup between the Warriors and Cavaliers. Neither was the best team in its conference during the regular season — the Cavaliers were only No. 4 in the East — and it’s not hard to envision a Houston to Toronto trip replacing what’s become an annual Oakland, California, to Cleveland itinerary.Then again, the Warriors could be as dangerous as ever once Curry returns from a knee injury that could have him back for the second round. James has played in the last seven NBA Finals, so nobody knows how to get to the finish line better, no matter from where he starts.

But the 76ers are led by postseason newcomers in Joel Embiid and rookie Ben Simmons — and Embiid is still recovering from a broken orbital bone and concussion as the postseason begins — and will have to overcome their inexperience and a rugged Miami team.THUNDER STRIKE?It was an up-and-down regular season for Oklahoma City, which acquired Paul George and Carmelo Anthony to play with Russell Westbrook but finished well back of Houston and Golden State. But the Thunder might be one of those teams better built for the postseason, and they got an easier road when they won three straight to grab home-court advantage against a Utah team that would have had it before a season-ending loss at Portland.BANGED-UP BOSTONThere’s no more Kyrie Irving and there was only Gordon Hayward for a few minutes all season, so the Celtics are being overlooked despite their No. 2 seed in the East. But there’s plenty of young (Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown) and veteran (Al Horford, Marcus Morris) talent on a 55-game winner that features one of the league’s best coaches in Brad Stevens.WHO WINS?As good as Toronto is, it seems futile picking against James and the firepower around him to get to the NBA Finals. But the Cavaliers don’t defend well enough and can be picked apart by top offenses, so go with the West champion to win the title, particularly if it’s Golden State or Houston.Take it from another champion. And the other top contenders have to overcome their history of disappointments. Houston’s Mike D’Antoni and James Harden have never won, and Chris Paul hasn’t even gotten out of the second round.

‘Sex Video’ Man Jailed

The assistant director at the Ministry of Finance and Development Planning (MFDP) accused of recording and subsequently exposing a ‘sex video’ of a female (name withheld) was yesterday arrested and detained at the Monrovia Central Prison.Mohammed Sambola, also a lecturer at the state-run University of Liberia (UL), was imprisoned by the Monrovia City Court for his inability to secure a bail to prevent him from going to jail because the crimes he is charged with qualified him for a bond.Charges levied against Sambola included disseminating obscene material and terrorist threat.The incident occurred on June 26 of this year when Sambolah allegedly escaped from prosecution when he was sought for committing the act.The video only showed Sambola allegedly encouraging his female partner (face up) to do the recording while in the midst of the act.The sex tape was posted on a social media chat room administered by some members of the ruling Unity Party (UP).The Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection, when the tape became public, claimed that their preliminary investigation gathered that the recording was done a long time before it was posted, though it did not disclose the time, claiming, “It was released recently when the two reportedly engaged in a misunderstanding.”Court documents alleged that Sambola’s action violates section 13.7 of the Penal Law of the country.The record also alleged that the video recording showed the lady performing fellatio (oral sex) on defendant Sambola, with said material appearing on Facebook social media platform.The record claimed that Sambola’s action put his female friend at the risk of exposure, which infringed on her privacy, as the defendant threatened to harm her.The case continues.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

UG unions want Govt to end salary talks deadlock

first_img…claim administration using delaying tacticsOne week after the University of Guyana Workers Union (UGWU) and the University of Guyana Senior Staff Association (UGSSA) announced they were pushing for their concerns regarding salary increases heard at the level of the Governing Council, these unions have now requested the immediate and direct intervention of the Government, through the Department of Labour.The unions said on Wednesday that the reason for the request was mainly due to the fact that the administration of the University has embarked on a series of delay tactics which are apparently designed to force the staff into accepting the imposed three and four per cent salary increases for 2018.The proposed increases have been described by officials from both unions as an insult. They have even argued that considering what staff go through — sometimes even subsidising their own classrooms — they deserve more. As such,University of Guyana, Turkeyen Campusthey plan to fight for more.“The University’s staff rejected the attempt of the University’s administration to delay meeting with the Unions until Tuesday, December 18,” a joint statement issued by these Unions noted.The offer to the Unions to meet to discuss 2018 negotiations was made on Friday, November 30, 2018. In response to a request for clarification, Vice Chancellor, Professor Ivelaw Griffith made it clear that the administration would have no time to meet with the Unions before that date.According to the Unions, the administration has already indicated via a memorandum to staff that they intend to pay the unilaterally imposed increase before the University closes. The University closes on Friday, December 21, 2018, for the Christmas break.It was noted that the University’s Registrar, Dr Nigel Gravesande, who serves as Secretary to the University’s Council, on Tuesday circulated a proposed date of Thursday, December 20, for the Council meeting to address the issue. The matter had been referred to him by the University’s Pro Chancellor, Major General (retired) Joseph Singh since November 19.“This means that Council will not have an opportunity to deliberate the matter until the day before the University closes. The discussion would also take place at a point where most likely the increase would already have been paid out to staff,” the Unions added.But these unions have an issue with that and have said while the time proposed for the Council’s meeting is 09:30 hrs they recalled that this has proven difficult for many Council members in the past few months to attend morning meetings in view of their work commitments.The Unions therefore said it have serious doubts about whether the administration is actually attempting to secure the full participation of all Council members.“The University’s administration has made it clear through its actions that it is attempting to force staff into accepting the imposed increase. The University’s staff reject this attempt, and call on the Department of Labour to intervene before the situation deteriorates further,” it said. The Unions have said they had attempted to negotiate this year’s salary increases with the University’s administration since January 2018, when they first wrote to the Vice Chancellor to request the start of negotiations. The agenda for the negotiations could not be agreed because the administration refused to let the Unions’ agenda items is discussed first.According to the Unions, their number one agenda item was ‘wages and salaries for 2018’. They claim it is disingenuous for the Vice Chancellor to claim “he has been forced to ask for the unilateral increase because he could not get the administration to agree to discuss these matters.”The UG administration has refused to negotiate wages and salaries with the Unions, as they failed to attend a conciliation meeting which was scheduled by the Department of Labour.In early November, the Unions had refused to sign the Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) put forward by the administration since it includes the non-submission of grades by lecturers as the sole performance issue.The Unions maintained that the Vice Chancellor was attempting to use staff performance as a distraction to “cover up what appears to be the sheer greed of demanding the same percentage salary increase as persons earning far less than those senior members of administration”.Despite these concerns, well-placed sources at the University have noted that the Union’s demands do not take into account existing allowances that were put in place to incentivise staff. According to one, these allowances include the University’s policy of waiving tuition for eligible staff who study at the university.last_img read more

Medal of Honor urged for Vietman vet

first_imgHACIENDA HEIGHTS – Joseph T. Getherall blocked out details from the Vietnam War for nearly 40 years. Getherall, 60, served two tours with the U.S. Marine Corps and was wounded three times. During his military service, the Hacienda Heights resident pulled a wounded soldier to safety despite being wounded himself and saved members of his unit by throwing an enemy grenade back toward the attackers. It wasn’t until 2004, after attending a Marine Corps reunion, that the retired Los Angeles Police Department detective was reminded of his actions. “In order to get over it, I had to block it out,” said Getherall. “I didn’t think about it once until these guys brought it up at the reunion.” Prompted by members of his unit, Rep. Grace Napolitano, D-Santa Fe Springs, on Feb. 8 introduced a bill requesting that the president award Getherall the Congressional Medal of Honor, the highest award given for valor in action against an enemy force. Getherall said he is overwhelmed by the honor and remembered his time in Vietnam. “The fear is indescribable. It was like someone kicked an anthill and they were everywhere,” Getherall said. “The carnage and the bloody bandages that were there from dragging away the wounded and the dead was incredible.” He joined the Marine Corps at age 17 after dropping out of school in the ninth grade. He said he was the “product of the projects in South Boston” and decided the military would help him straighten out his life. “The Marine Corps absolutely, positively created my life. It gave me self-discipline and direction,” Getherall said. “If it wasn’t for the Marine Corps, I wouldn’t be where I am today.” In the early morning hours of Dec. 22, 1966, Getherall, a sergeant, was the squad leader with Company M, 3rd Battalion, 26th Marines, 3rd Marine Division during Operation Chinook. According to accounts from Getherall and squad members, the squad was in a night defensive position near the Co Bi-Than Tan Corridor of the Thua Thien Province when intense enemy fire erupted from the 802nd Viet Cong Battalion. While guiding his squad, Getherall was seriously injured in both legs and arms by an exploding mortar round but refused medical evacuation and continued with his unit. During the firefight, one of his fellow Marines went down. Getherall moved across dangerous open terrain and dragged the wounded Marine to safety, according to accounts. Those actions got him recommended for a Silver Star, which he never received because the information was lost by the Marine Corps. During another assault that night, Getherall picked up an enemy grenade that had landed near the Marines and threw it back where it exploded a few meters away and left Getherall with his third wound. He was discharged from the Marine Corps in 1967 and said he never thought about Vietnam. Instead, he had a 28-year career in law enforcement and put his memories of Vietnam behind him until a few years ago. Don Lepore, a member of in Getherall’s unit, said it’s a shame he has still not been recognized for his heroism. “I couldn’t believe it because we were under heavy fire with rounds kicking up all around us and there was Sgt. Getherall picking up the grenade. I saw him start to throw it back down the hill when I ducked down in my foxhole,” Lepore said. “There is no doubt that myself and others would have been killed or seriously wounded had Sgt. Getherall not given us a warning and thrown that grenade back at the enemy.” Gary Loveridge, Getherall’s former platoon commander, recommended Getherall for the Silver Star and was upset he was never officially recognized for his bravery. Loveridge, who has been instrumental in helping Getherall take the necessary steps to get his accolades, contacted Napolitano after learning about the grenade incident. “Joe is very deserving for the Medal of Honor,” Loveridge said. “Because in addition to the heroic actions that evening he has stayed in contact with the members of his platoon, since reuniting with them, and has given them guidance and support because some of them are dealing with their own issues of being veterans of Vietnam.” After hearing about Getherall three years ago, Napolitano said she has been trying to get him recognition. “Sometimes it takes an act of Congress to move things,” Napolitano said. “\ went beyond the call of duty. The people he saved are alive and supporting his story, and I think he deserves it. He served our country bravely and faithfully and his service deserves to be awarded.” According to the Congressional Medal of Honor Society, there have been 3,461 Medals of Honor awarded. Napolitano said she hopes the decision for Getherall’s is made soon but that it could take years. After retiring from LAPD in 1996, Getherall continued to live an active life. He opened a private investigator business, provided security for celebrities, won a bodybuilding championship at age of 53 and enjoyed life with his family. He has three adult children, five grandchildren and has been married for nearly 40 years. Getherall said after the award process started, the first family member he told about his actions in Vietnam was his son. Joey Getherall, 28, played in the NFL and is now an LAPD officer. He said his father’s story was unsurprising. “I didn’t expect anything less from him. I was raised by a great man, and I have always had the highest respect for him,” he said. “That’s why I have followed in his footsteps and tried to emulate him. He’s one of a kind.” (626) 962-8811, Ext. 2109160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

Study burnout

first_imgEveryone’s looking for solutions to traffic congestion in the greater Los Angeles region, coming up with serious and fanciful ideas – from bullet trains to toll roads, to mountain tunnels. So it’s no surprise that officials in the Antelope Valley are trying to look ahead at how to manage the traffic from the ever-growing sprawl of Los Angeles. But they seem stuck on a troubling project: Building a highway between Glendale and Palmdale right through the mountains and the Angeles National Forest. An initial study found the “inter-dale” plan feasible, but difficult, costly and unpopular. It would cost about $3.1 billion (a price tag sure to increase). Now Antelope Valley officials want to study the idea some more, to the tune of $2 million to $3 million. Clearly, this is a political move to try to generate more support for the project. Either people should commit to the project, or not. But dropping another few million into the black hole of government spending isn’t the way to proceed. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Moore’s return a sour one

first_img Moore finished 279 yards on 14-of-25 passing and threw two touchdowns. But he was unable to muster a response for Olson, who led the Bruins on five first-half scoring drives and set a school record for touchdowns in a game with six. “They’re good,” Moore said of UCLA. “Maurice Drew, Marcedes Lewis and Drew Olson. That’s a pretty good trio.” Moore began the 2003 season as UCLA’s starting quarterback after a close competition with Olson heading into the season. He was injured in the Bruins’ first game, and though he regained his job briefly after he healed, he failed to keep it. Moore transferred to Oregon State the following year, and after sitting out the season to gain eligibility won another close quarterback competition to take the lead reins in Corvallis. It appeared Moore and Olson would continue their rivalry early in Saturday’s game. Moore was 3 of 3 on the Beavers’ opening possession and led Oregon State on an 80-yard drive that included a 15-yard touchdown pass to Mike Hass. Olson responded by leading the Bruins on an 83-yard drive that ended with a 43-yard touchdown pass to Mauirce Drew on a deep route down the sideline. But while Olson kept up his side of the rivalry the rest of the first half, Moore floundered. Olson led the Bruins on scoring drives on four of UCLA’s next five possessions, Moore threw an interception and the Beavers failed to get a first down their next six drives. By the time Oregon State responded with a 26-yard touchdown pass from Moore to Hass, UCLA was in front 24-14 and had scored 24 consecutive points. Olson, meanwhile, appeared every bit the part of a Unitas Award winner, a few days after it was announced he is one of seven finalists for the award. Olson set a school record with six touchdown passes, including two to Drew and two to Lewis. “I feel like we should have had eight,” Olson said. “I missed (Joe) Cowan early and I should have thrown it better to Brandon (Breazell) on the last drive.” Olson hit his receivers with aggressive, spot-on passes that made his struggles the past two years seem a distant memory and validated coach Karl Dorrell’s decision to stick with the once-embattled quarterback each of the past three years. Never was Olson’s transformation more apparent than with 9:47 left in the fourth quarter. After Oregon State running back Yvenson Bernard punched in a touchdown to bring the Beavers within two possessions, Olson responded on the ensuing possession with an aggressive deep pass to Brandon Breazell for a 46-yard touchdown that made the score 48-28 and effectively iced the game. “This really doesn’t surprise me,” Olson said of his performance. “I can see how it surprises other people, but I knew I had it in me. Being 7-0 is a surprise to other people, too, but not to this team.” Walter Hammerwold can be reached at (626) 962-8811, Ext. 2239, or by e-mail at 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The UCLA defense intercepted Moore twice and forced him into three turnovers and Drew Olson, the quarterback who took his job three seasons ago, again got the better of him as the Bruins rolled to their seventh consecutive win, 51-28. “That one pick to Spencer (Havner) ticked me off,” Moore said. “But other than that, I thought I played all right.” center_img PASADENA — The UCLA student section peppered Oregon State quarterback Matt Moore with chants of “We don’t want you” while the former Bruin warmed up an hour before Saturday’s game at the Rose Bowl.
