Ramil De Jesus is the most successful coach in the UAAP women’s volleyball landscape in the past 20 years with 10 titles to back that claim.ADVERTISEMENT Jo Koy draws ire for cutting through Cebu City traffic with ‘wang-wang’ Dy, who is De Jesus’ leading scorer this tournament with an average of 13.35 points in the eliminations, said she wants the current batch of Lady Spikers to replicate the feats of the past La Salle teams.“This is our chance to get back that three-peat and of course, after all the sacrifices we did, this will be our final test,” said Dy who had 17 points against NU.“We want to show coach that in the five years we’ve been at La Salle that we are the players he produced. We want to honor him,” added Dy.Macandili echoed her teammates’ sentiments, grateful for De Jesus’ impact on her career, including her rise to one of the best players in her position.“This is our last playing year, and we want to have a good exit and of course offer this to coach,” said Macandili who tallied 23 excellent digs and 10 excellent receptions. “We won’t be here if it wasn’t for coach, we want to leave La Salle with no regrets so we’ll give it our all.”ADVERTISEMENT King stars as Columbian blasts Blackwater in PBA Comms’ Cup opener LATEST STORIES P16.5-M worth of aid provided for Taal Volcano eruption victims — NDRRMC Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next In fight vs corruption, Duterte now points to Ayala, MVP companies as ‘big fish’ Green group flags ‘overkill’ use of plastic banderitas in Manila Sto.

Coach Elena Schmidt says the players have been working on the fundamentals of their game leading up to provincials, and she is happy with how the team has progressed since the start of the season.“A little bit of it has been fine details such as precision passing and blocking and positioning. We’ve been working on more of the details and consistency,” she says. “Their passing has gotten so much better; serving tough as well is a couple of our strengths now. Throughout the season they came together as a team.”Schmidt says the team really turned things around in Peace River where they took first in the consolation bracket of the tournament.- Advertisement -“I think it was definitely that Peace River Tournament where we won the consolation draw because there it turned into we want to win,” she explains. “We played game after game. Once we knew we were in the consolation bracket we just said, ‘it’s not just play and go home soon, it’s were going to keep playing and we’ll go home when were done’.” The team will open the tournament on Thursday with three games, with the first at 11:35 a.m. against South Kamloops.
Kopitar ranks second among all rookie scorers in the NHL and third among Kings scorers, but with the playoffs all but out of reach, the Kings won’t rush Kopitar back into the lineup and risk further injury. Visnovsky should return Tuesday, Crawford said, and the Kings need all the help they can get. The Kings, going for their first three-game winning streak of the season, held a 3-2 lead early in the third period when Michael Cammalleri scored his second goal of the game but it didn’t last long. Forty seconds later, Kariya tied the game with a power-play goal, and then, with Rob Blake in the penalty box for tripping, Marek Zidlicky scored the eventual game winner, 9:39 into the third period. “The Kings came back and they played very hard,” Forsberg said. “They had nothing to play for and they still came out and played very hard. They definitely had a chance to win in the third.” Nashville scored three power-play goals in seven chances against the Kings’ penalty-kill unit, which is ranked last in the NHL in efficiency. “That’s why they’re great,” Kings center Derek Armstrong said of the Predators. “They capitalize. We came out of the gate so bad, so slow, and they score when they get their opportunities.” J.P. Dumont and Kariya added third-period goals to cap a tough day for Kings goalie Sean Burke, who had been stellar of late, with a 5-1-1 record and a 2.20 goals-against average in his last seven games. After a strong first period, Burke finished with his worst game as a King and stopped 27 of 33 shots. The Kings took seven minor penalties and drew just two penalties by the Predators. “When you take penalties and allow their best players to be on the ice, you’re playing a dangerous game,” Crawford said. “We played a dangerous game.” Cammalleri’s second goal of the game gave him a career-best 27 for the season. Cammalleri has a six-game scoring streak and has 24 points in his last 15 games. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Shea Weber and Paul Kariya each scored two goals for the Western Conference-leading Predators, who have won four consecutive games. Peter Forsberg assisted on three of Nashville’s third-period goals. Things aren’t likely to get much better for the Kings. After the game, coach Marc Crawford said Kopitar was unlikely to accompany the Kings on a four-game road trip that begins Tuesday in Chicago. Kopitar suffered his injury, which is likely in the neck or back area, during practice Tuesday. Crawford said Kopitar had not undergone a MRI, but after the game, Kopitar said he had one on Tuesday. “It’s just something that happened,” a tight-lipped Kopitar said in the arena’s hallway. LOS ANGELES – Given the way things have been going of late, the Kings might soon be forced to forfeit games. Over the last five weeks, the Kings traded away Craig Conroy, Sean Avery, Brent Sopel and Mattias Norstrom. They lost Anze Kopitar to injury this week and the hits kept coming Saturday afternoon. Kopitar, the sensational rookie center and the Kings’ third-leading scorer, missed a second consecutive game with an undisclosed upper-body injury and defenesman Lubomir Visnovsky, the team’s fourth-leading scorer, missed the game after he was struck on the left foot by a shot two nights earlier. It all added up to a loss to the Kings, who were let down again by their league-worst penalty-kill unit. Nasvhille scored four consecutive third-period goals for a 6-3 victory before 16,854 at Staples Center.
“I just found out I’m the only one here,” the 36-year-old said, as the smile spread across his face. “Things are looking good.” Two other top mushers pulled out of the race with injuries in what is proving to be one of the roughest races in years. Paul Gebhardt, 50, of Kasilof, who finished third last year and was runner-up in 2000, was second into Nikolai. He said he took a bunch of spills on 25 miles of trail that was nothing but tussocks. “It was really rough,” he said. “You would slip and then slide into the trees and off the trail.” Gebhardt said the frigid winds, which were pushing night-time temperatures to 40 degrees below zero, also is making for a miserable run. “It seems like it has been in our face the whole time,” he said. To make matters worse, Zirkle said a lot of the teams are going the wrong way out of Rainy Pass because one of the trail markers got knocked down. She went the wrong way, losing 1
“The reality is that even with full participation of the existing population, B.C. will still need about 265,000 international workers to meet the projected labour demand,” says Kelly Pollack, CEO of IEC-BC. “No one solution will meet the workforce supply needs in these regions.”Pollack explains that tapping into the skills of new Canadians that are already here in B.C. is “an effective human resource strategy that can complement other initiatives to increase workforce participation from other underrepresented groups.”According to the BC Labour Market Outlook 2022, over 1 million jobs are expected to open up in B.C. by the end of this decade with many of the jobs being in Central and Northern B.C.- Advertisement -The website also features useful resources for employers to build employer capacity to attract, hire and retain skilled immigrants including links to online tutorials and resources in the three communities.The Northern B.C. jobs campaign is funded by the Province of B.C. and Ministry of Jobs, Tourism, and Skills Training – with partners including local Chambers of Commerce and economic development organizations, Human Resources Management Association, Hecate Strait Employment Development Society, Immigrant and Multicultural Services Society and S.U.C.C.E.S.S.Follow this link to check out the new website.Advertisement

13 3. Laurie Cunningham: Elegant and skilful player who won the respect of both Real AND Barca – Cunningham caught the attention of Real Madrid while playing for West Brom and was signed by the club in 1979 to become the first Englishman to play for the club. He was blessed with great skill and dangerous when running at the opposition. In 1980 during a game at the Camp Nou he became one of few Real players to receive a standing ovation from the home supporters during a 2-0 win as the Barca players had no way of stopping him. He won a Spanish league and cup double in his first season, another Spanish Cup in 1982 and was a runner-up in the 1981 European Cup final. He sadly died at the age of 33 in a car crash. 13 13 6. Liam Brady: Loved wherever he travelled – Brady was the Player of the Year in 1979 and Juve paid Arsenal £500,000 for him a year later. He won the title in his first season there and in his second and final season, Bradys penalty against Catanzaro in the final game of the season earned Juve another league crown. He moved to Sampdoria next and then Inter after that and was popular throughout his time in Italy which finished at lowly Ascoli in 1986. 13 10. David Platt: The last British success in Italy? – Platt is still loved in Genoa, where he starred for Sampdoria, as well as Bari, who initially brought him to Italy in 1991. He pretty much became an Italian during his four years there, having embraced the lifestyle and by the time he left for Arsenal in 1995 he was a much more technically accomplished player. At Bari he shone despite the club suffering relegation in 1992, and after a brief spell at Juventus Platt joined Roberto Mancini and Sampdoria in 1993 where he won a Coppa Italia. 13 8. David Beckham: Golden Englishman – Beckham was the last Brit to successfully cement his place in the Real Madrid starting line-up even if his time there was rather up and down. He joined in 2003 following enormous fanfare owing to his huge popularity around the world. He was quality when hitting the ball and was one of the hardest working players in football, though his finest season didnt come until the 2006/07 campaign, which was his last at the club. He was frozen out of the team by Fabio Capello in 2007 having agreed to join LA Galaxy in the summer, but forced his way back in and was a huge factor in the club winning a first league title since 2003. 13 13 5. Chris Waddle: Marseille Had a Feeling about him… – Marseille paid Tottenham £4.5m for Waddle in 1989 and after a few early fitness problems, slotted in almost immediately. He won three successive league titles in three years and also finished as a European Cup runner-up in 1991. A front three of Waddle, Jean-Pierre Papin and Abedi Pele was a frightening line-up. He loved the flexibility offered to a player of his talent abroad, as he explained to Pete Davies in his excellent book, All Played Out. In France I’m an attacker, he said. [In England] I’m running up and down, up and down, defend, attack, defend, attack I’m shattered.” A brilliant goal against PSG also did his popularity no harm. Magic Chris as he became known. 13 13 2. Gareth Bale: Soon to be Britain’s greatest foreign import – He is now in his third season in Spain and continues to shine despite constant rumours of him being unhappy and angling for a move away. But since 2013 Bale has cemented his place as one of the best in the world, has won a league title and will play in his third Champions League final, having won two already. In addition his amazing goal against Barcelona won Real the Copa del Rey in 2014. His impact in Spain has been huge despite sharing a changing room with Cristiano Ronaldo. It wont be long until he takes no.1 spot. 13. Ray Wilkins – scroll through the gallery to see which player is the best British or Irish player abroad – Gareth Bale could win his third Champions League trophy at Real Madrid. Bale joined in 2013 and has had a huge impact in Spain, so talkSPORT looks at other British success abroad. Wilkins left Man United for Milan in 1984, but joined the Italian side just before they embarked on a period of domination. He reached the Coppa Italia final, but lost to Sampdoria, but despite all this, his overall play ensured he was well respected by his team-mates and fans. They were big professionals, big names at the time, and they had this great optimism about them, Franco Baresi said of Wilkins and team-mate Mark Hateley, who achieved cult status in Milan. 12. Mark Hateley: Loved by the fans in an era of mediocrity at Milan – Thats Hateley towering above Inter defender Fulvio Collovati I 1984 being celebrated by Milan fans in banner form. The strikers header helped to end five years without a derby win. He scored 17 goals in 66 games and although he didnt win any trophies during his time there, he clearly won a place in the hearts and memories of fans. Injuries interrupted his time over there and he left for Monaco in 1987. 13 9. Gary Lineker: He just couldn’t stop scoring goals – Shortly after winning the 1986 World Cup Golden Boot, Lineker left Everton for Barcelona and scored 21 goals in his first season at the club. This included a hat-trick in a 3-2 win against rivals Real Madrid and the following season won the Spanish Cup and the Cup Winners Cup in 1989. However, Johan Cruyff didnt really fancy him as a player and began trying to force him out by playing him out wide and he eventually moved to Tottenham. We shouldn’t forget Steve Archibald aka ‘Archigoles’, another Barcelona goal scorer plucked from these shores who played in the 1986 European Cup final. 13 13 7. Steve McManaman: Versatile midfielder who shone on the biggest stage – McManaman won major trophies and was popular with both players and fans following his free transfer from Liverpool to Real Madrid in 1999. He scored against Valencia in the 2000 Champions League final win and won the competition again in 2002 in addition to winning two league titles. While he wasnt always consistent, McManaman was still a valuable player due to his willingness to play in a variety of midfield positions. In total he played 158 times and scored 14 goals for the club. 11. Trevor Francis: The ‘greatest English player to play in Italy’ – Francis scored 17 goals in 68 games between 1982 and 1986 and set up Graeme Souness for a memorable goal in the 1985 Coppa Italia final, which Sampdoria won. His pace helped him out (just watch his second goal against Inter at the San Siro), while he was also involved in a punch up with team-mate Roberto Mancini after a pre-season friendly in 1984. He has not been forgotten either and in 2012, Francis attended a derby match against Genoa as a guest of the club. Gareth Bale could win his third Champions League trophy at Real Madrid. Bale joined in 2013 and has had a huge impact in Spain, so talkSPORT looks at other British success abroad. This list is by no means definitive. No, talkSPORT has simply picked 13 brilliant players and attempted to rank them in order, taking into account their popularity, how they played abroad as well as trophies won.Feel free to let talkSPORT know your choices and why. 4. Kevin Keegan: Germany were Head over Heels in Love with him – Keegan left Liverpool for Germany in 1977 and after some initial teething problems he was sent off during a pre-season friendly for punching an opponent he eventually became a king. In just three years he won successive European Footballer of the Year awards, won a league title and reached the European Cup final. He also released a top 10 hit called Head Over Heels in Love. 13 1. John Charles: The Gentle Giant is still very much revered – Charles, widely seen as one of Wales greatest footballer, died in 2004 and youre likely to hear a lot more about him this week as the Champions League final in Cardiff edges closer. Thats because he is also one of Juventus greatest players. The club paid Leeds £65,000 for him in 1957 and soon formed part of the Magic Trio alongside Giampiero Boniperti and Omar Sivori. Charles scored 28 times as Juve won the league in his first season, and won it on two other occasions as well as the Coppa Italia twice. In 1997 Juves centenary year Charles was voted by fans as the clubs greatest ever foreign player. The list of people who have seen him play decreases all the time, though.
A man who claimed social welfare payments while having €173,840 in his bank account has been ordered to pay a donation of €500 to St Vincent de Paul.Peter Carton appeared at Falcarragh District Court charged with seven offences relating to defrauding the Department of Social Protection. Inspector Mary Joe McGovern from the Department of Social Protection told the court that Carton had claimed a total of €28,594 in social welfare payments between 2009 and 2016.In 2011 he was interviewed by officers from the Department of Social Protection and asked if he had any savings.Carton, of Station Road, Falcarragh, revealed he had a little more than €1,000 in a bank account and some other money in a local credit union account.However, he failed to disclose that he had the sum of more than €173,000 in savings in another bank account.Solicitor for the accused, Mr Cormac Hartnett, said his client genuinely didn’t believe he had to disclose the savings to the Department.“When approached he was utterly compliant. He seemed to have a bizarre but genuine belief that he didn’t need to declare this sum of money,” said Mr Hartnett.However, Judge Paul Kelly asked Inspector McGovern if Mr Carton would have been aware that he needed to declare the money and she said he had been asked such questions in interview.Judge Kelly said that it appeared Mr Carton was concealing the cash adding “He forgot to mention this very large sum of money sitting in a bank.”The court was told that all the cash claimed illegally has since been repaid and that Carton admitted to receiving payments of Jobseeker’s Allowance, while failing to disclose full details in relation to all his bank accounts.Judge Kelly asked how much of the €173,840 in savings did Mr Carton have left.Solicitor Hartnett said there was approximately €6,000 of this money left as his client had since bought a house.Judge Kelly ordered father-of-two Carton to pay €500 to St Vincent de Paul and applied the Probation Act.Man who claimed €28,594 in social welfare had more than €173,000 in his bank account was last modified: September 23rd, 2017 by StephenShare 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:courtdonegalFalcarraghfraudPeter Carton
Which teams do the best on Boxing Day in the Premier League era? 2 REVEALED tense The 29-year-old has looked woefully short of quality under manager Jose Mourinho, playing 22 times in all competitions and scoring just three goals.He hasn’t once had a standout performance for the Red Devils, and Sanchez’s signing appears to have also hurt the career of Anthony Martial, with the France forward pushed out the team to accommodate the former Barcelona ace.But the people hurt most by Sanchez’s arrival and subsequent poor form are United chiefs, who are writing the cheques for Sanchez to cash.With a weekly wage of £391,000 taken home since January 22, and a further £75,000 paid for every match he has started, Sanchez has made £14.48million in his 33 weeks at Old Trafford. Most read in Premier League 2 latest predicted This equates to Sanchez being paid just over £658,000 for every appearance he has made for the club, or, even more incredibly, £4.83million per goal he has scored for United.Given United are going to continue paying Sanchez handsomely, and his own form does not appear to be improving, this total looks like it will keep growing at a rate of knots as Sanchez draws closer towards the one year anniversary of him becoming a Red Devil. changes The average first-team salaries at every Premier League club in 2019 How Everton could look in January under Ancelotti with new signings He is widely reported to be United’s highest-paid player, with Football Leaks, as quoted by the Daily Mail, confirming Sanchez receives a base wage of £391,000-per-week. He is also said to make £75,000 for every game he starts, while further benefiting from an annual £1.1million signing-on fee.For all that money, Sanchez has done little since joining United to show he deserves such pay. Alexis Sanchez has been one of the worst performers in the Premier League since his January transfer to Manchester United.Sanchez, the Chile forward, left Arsenal for Old Trafford on January 22, signing a four-and-a-half year deal with the Red Devils after scoring 80 times in 166 games for the Emirates Stadium club.
