The Growling Tigers’ 0-10 card had pushed them out of the Final Four picture.“We were walking today and we let La Salle run,” said Pumaren whose team lost control of the game as early as the second quarter when it fell to a 40-24 deficit. “We can’t have that kind of play against Ateneo because that team is more cohesive and passes a lot more compared to La Salle.”All of UE’s remaining games are all must-win contests and the Red Warriors will also rely on teams like FEU and NU to stumble if they hope to barge into the semifinals.And Pumaren knows the first step is scoring a vital victory, potentially, against the Blue Eagles.“We have to focus on Ateneo first,” said Pumaren. “We have to concentrate on Ateneo on Saturday, and hopefully we’ll be able to steal a game from them.”ADVERTISEMENT 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 LATEST STORIES More than 50k fans attend Ginebra-Meralco Finals Game 6 Jo Koy: My brain always wants to think funny Coco’s house rules on ‘Probinsyano’ set MOST READ Kiss-and-tell matinee idol’s conquests: True stories or tall tales?

Reports from Bong Mines in Fuamah District, Lower Bong County say a Chinese national in the area was arraigned before the Bong Mines Magisterial Court for allegedly raping a 14 year old minor, the Liberia News Agency (LINA) Margibi County correspondent has reported.According to LINA, copies of documents obtained from the Liberia National Police (LNP) in Bong Mines, recorded that the alleged rapist identified as Pan Wuu, a Chinese contractor with the China Union (Liberia) Investment Bong Mining Company on June 20 allegedly raped the victim after luring her into his apartment.The victim, the police record said, was walking home when Pan Wuu met her and asked if she had a boyfriend or phone number, but the young girl reportedly answered no to the two questions.She further stated to the police that following the brief interaction, the accused gave her his telephone number, and the next day she called the number and it was at this point that the Chinese reportedly took the victim to his house at the steel factory up the mines and upon entering his house, he asked her to undress herself and he had sexual intercourse with her.“While there with Wuu, he took her nude photo and posted it on his facebook page, which was soon discovered by one contact that never hesitated to bring the matter to the public,” LINA reported.When the news of the rape broke out, the Stipendiary Magistrate, Joel Tarkpah, requested the police to assign the case to him, upon which he reportedly summoned suspect Wuu to the court.Magistrate Tarkpah did carry out a preliminary investigation into the case and later detained suspect Wuu at the police cell in Bong Mines, but reportedly released the suspect after the parents of the victim agreed for a waiver of the rape case against their daughter.Up to press time, according to LINA, the Chinese suspect had been allowed to leave the country on the pretext that he was going to China on vacation.Meanwhile, Magistrate Tarkpah has been cited by his supervisors to the Gbarnga Regional Hub for questioning in connection with the alleged rape case involving the Chinese national. Meanwhile, the Public Relations Officer of China Union, Morris Tate, along with the parents of the victim, has been invited by the LNP for questioning about their alleged role in the rape case.

Bishop Cuffee wants MoE creates vacation job for students as programs to encourage them enroll during next semester A Liberian educator and clergyman Bishop James G.Cuffee, Sr. has called on authorities of the Ministry of Education (MoE) to introduce vacation jobs, specifically for students to enable them pay their school fees.The clergyman also wants government allot a budget for such a project as encouragement for the students, whose parents are under immense economic pressure to enroll them.Bishop Cuffee is the founder of the Bishop Cuffee Institute in Lower Virginia, Montserrado County. He said if MoE introduces such a program to promote vacation jobs, students would be encouraged to take up the opportunities so that in the end, they will pay their school fees, including other instructional materials.Bishop Cuffee is also the national chairman of the Apostolic World Christian Fellowship (AWCF-Liberia chapter Incorporated).Cuffee made recommendations recently at a program marking the 24th graduation exercises of the elementary division of the Bishop Cuffee Institute in Virginia, where he served as the keynote speaker.He said that if the MoE takes his recommendation into consideration, it would enable students to enroll by themselves and relieve parents/guardians of the overhead economic burden so that they would be self-reliant, not loitering in every street corner.Cuffee meanwhile called on MoE to revisit the present curriculum so as to match it with present-day teaching methods, including the introduction of laboratories, environmental science and other subjects in the sciences.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
Like a hungry customer at a fancy buffet, Robert Ford sees tasty delights everywhere he looks. As the point guard for high school basketball power Campbell Hall of North Hollywood, Ford is flanked by high-scoring forwards Justin and Jrue Holiday. Straight ahead is versatile big man Keegan Hornbuckle, and out of the corner of Ford’s eye is designated shooter Dallas Rutherford. “It’s pretty fun, knowing I can count on so many of my teammates,” Ford said. “We went 32-0 two years ago, but I think this is actually a more athletic team. I like the way we can get up and down the floor.” And then there’s Ford’s speed. There isn’t a quicker point guard in the San Fernando Valley, and few defenders can keep up as Ford streaks down court. “He’s one of the fastest players I’ve ever seen with the basketball,” Kelly said. “When he puts the burners on, he just goes, and that puts a lot of pressure on the defense.” Justin Holiday believes Ford could score a lot more points if it was necessary. Instead, Ford makes his teammates better, and that’s the ultimate tribute for a point guard. “The truth is, Robert can score at will, but he gets everyone else involved,” Holiday said. “He does make the rest of us better, and he always gets me the ball in the right position. He just does whatever needs to be done to help the team.” The one thing no one in Campbell Hall circles can figure out is why Ford isn’t heavily recruited. Offers might come in if the Vikings make another run at a state championship, but for now Ford still is wondering about his college plans. If nothing pans out, he probably will follow Holiday to the University of Washington and try to make the team as a walk-on. “That would be fine with me,” Holiday said. “I’d really like to see that happen because I really think he could help the team.” Ford’s older brother Joe, who’s five inches taller, is a sophomore at University of Pacific. The elder Ford was the Daily News Player of the Year in 2005, when Campbell Hall went undefeated and won a state title. “They’re often compared, but they’re really two different kinds of players,” Kelly said. “Joe was tall and lanky, but Rob’s got a great outside shot. He’s lights out from the outside, which is something his brother didn’t have.” Robert appreciates his brother because without him, the younger Ford never could have developed. The two constantly worked out together while growing up, and it’s obvious Robert benefited.. “Joe made me a better player and gave me confidence because he always believed in me,” Robert said. “That confidence just made me a better all-around basketball player.” Robert said the family home has been a lot quieter since Joe went to college. There are no plans for the two to reunite at Pacific. That brings things back to why the younger brother is getting snubbed by recruiters. “I really don’t know why. I guess people think my game isn’t that good or whatever,” he said. “I’m just going to keep working hard, and maybe something will open up for me.” So Robert Ford will continue going about the business of helping others, and that’s OK with him, though in the back of his mind he wonders what things would be like if he spent an evening creating his own shots instead of simply running the offense. “I like to win, so if I get zero points but still get the victory, I’m happy with that,” Ford said. “But, yes, sometimes I do wish I could get 81 points like Kobe.” email@example.com (661) 257-5218 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Ford is the sparkplug for a team that has won 18 in a row, including a current streak of four victories by 53 points or more. The 6-foot-1 senior averages 10.2 points. 3.7 assists and two steals, but it’s the intangibles that don’t show up in a box score that most impress coach Terry Kelly. “Robert Ford really is the unsung hero of this team,” Kelly said. “He does all the things that make a good point guard. He gets others involved, he’s intense, and he has great knowledge of the game. He has really led us on the floor and he doesn’t make mistakes. “You’re comfortable when he has the ball in any situation because he doesn’t make bad decisions.”

GRANADA HILLS – Five suspected gang members stole thousands of dollars worth of laptop computers and cash Thursday morning from John F. Kennedy High School, officials said. Two of the suspects were arrested and three are still at large, officials said. Mission area patrol officers responded to a burglary alarm at the school at about 3:30 a.m., LAPD Lt. Chuck Wampler said. Officers arrived at the school and saw the five suspects fleeing. “The officers took two into custody after a foot pursuit,” Wampler said. “A perimeter was established, the K-9 unit was brought in, but the others suspects got away.” The burglars broke into four school buildings – two buildings with classrooms, the attendance office and the school store. They used crowbars to pry open the door to the school store, breaking off the lock, and they smashed through windows to gain entrance to the other buildings. Inside the buildings, they broke more windows, ransacked rooms and rummaged through desks looking for valuables, and stole laptop computers and cash. When students arrived for school in the morning, administrators herded them onto athletic fields so LAPD detectives could tape off the crime scenes. Members of the department’s Scientific Investigation Division photographed the crime scene and dusted it for fingerprints. Police impounded a Nissan sedan they believe belonged to the suspects. “We were just like, ‘What’s going on?’” said Vanessa Duffy, a senior at Kennedy. “Then they told us the school had been vandalized. Most people were happy we weren’t in class. Kids were playing football, that kind of thing.” Police are looking to see if there is a connection between Thursday’s burglary at Kennedy and three other school burglaries that occured within the past week, Wampler said. Patrick Henry Middle School, El Camino High School and Taft High School were all burglarized over the weekend, LAUSD spokeswoman Ellen Morgan said. Morgan would not give any details on those burglaries, saying that an investigation into the crimes is still underway. — Josh Kleinbaum, (818) 546-3669 firstname.lastname@example.org AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREOregon Ducks football players get stuck on Disney ride during Rose Bowl event160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Donegal disability campaigner Frank Larkin.A local disability campaigner says he is horrified after horrific content poking fun at people who have disabilities was posted on a local Facebook page. Letterkenny Buy and Sell is a popular page which people use as a medium to interact on to sell and purchase a wide range of products and items.Thousands regularly browse the page to look for bargains, but recently users have been left shocked and disgusted after the page was hijacked by trolls. The trolls have bombarded the page with extremely offensive material which included a post in which they have advertised a spina bifida doll for sale.The organisers of the page have now ben forced to set up a new Letterkenny Buy and Sell page.They posted the image of a doll for sale with the following caption.“Spina bifida doll for sale, realistic in every way. Treat her like a real retard. $20 new.” That post is just one of a series of vile and absolutely repulsive posts that have been uploaded onto the page in recent days.We have refused to reproduce the horrific pictures posted on the site.Donegal disability campaigner Frank Larkin has been left horrified about the content on the page and Frank sent a complaint to Facebook regarding the issue.However, unbelievably Facebook deemed it not offensive which left Frank absolutely flabbergasted.Frank told Donegal Daily, “I’m totally horrified by the content that has been posted on this page, it’s absolutely outrageous and it’s deeply offensive. “I contacted Facebook immediately to make them aware of the situation that arose on the page and obviously was expecting them to do something about it.“So you can imagine why I was left stunned when I received a response from Facebook moderators who deemed it not offensive.A NEW Letterekenny Buy and Sell page has been set-up and you have to add it in order to be accepted and it now has a moderator which is weeding out and eliminating TROLLS to avoid a repeat of what is happening with the current page.TROLLS have continued to post on the old page and the latest contribution could be the most offensive and disgusting so far. They’ve advertised a white bucket for sale for €5, beside the bucket is an aborted foetus.People are being advised to be wary of friend requests from fake profiles on Facebook because TROLLS are doing it on order to get the private details of users.Mr Larkin is now considering contacting the Gardai about the matter.DONEGAL DISABILITY CAMPAIGNER LEFT HORRIFIED AT REPULSIVE POSTS LEFT ON LOCAL FACEBOOK PAGE was last modified: April 16th, 2015 by Mark ForkerShare 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:donegalFacebookFrank LarkinLetterkenny Buy and Sellposts
