The SC denied thepetition for a temporary restraining order filed by MORE Power against thedecision of the RTC in Mandaluyong City which declared two provisions ofRepublic Act 11212 (MORE Power’s franchise law) unconstitutional. Amular issued thereprimand after MORE Power’s Atty. Hector Teodosio questioned in court thestatements of PECO administrative manager Marcelo Cacho relative to theexpropriation case when he was interviewed by the media on Tuesday regardingrecent Supreme Court resolutions. Also yesterday, arepresentative of the Energy Regulation Commission (ERC) submitted a list ofPECO’s assets which were part of the company’s power distribution system. RTC-IloiloBranch 35 requested for it. The goal of the gag order, according to Amular, was to insulatethe court from extraneous influence. Teodosio recalledthat Amular previously reprimanded MORE Power president Roel Castro forgranting media interviews related to the expropriation case. Amular’s gag order issued on Aug. 20 covered the two rival powerdistributors, their counsels and persons acting in their behalf “to avoid anyimproper conduct tending directly or indirectly to impede, obstruct or degradethe administration of justice.” Duringyesterday’s hearing, Amular told the two parties to respect the court’s gagorder and not make him a “watchdog” of their behavior. MORE Power, which has a 25-year power distribution franchise forthis city, seeks to take over the power distribution assets of PECO whosefranchise expired on Jan. 19, 2019. ILOILO City –Regional Trial Court (RTC) Branch 35’s Judge Daniel Antonio Gerardo Amularreprimanded both Panay Electric Co. (PECO) and MORE Electric and Power Corp.(MORE Power) for issuing statements related to their expropriation case. He assured thetwo parties yesterday he would carefully study the case and asked them torespect whatever decision he would make for the sake of the people of the city. In July,Mandaluyong RTC Branch 209 ruled that sections 10 (Right of Eminent Domain) and17 (Transition of Operations) of Republic Act 11212 were “void andunconstitutional for infringing on PECO’s rights to due process and equalprotection of the law.” ERC’s Atty. ArjayLouie Cuanan said, “We submit it to the court so it could be guided… forpurposes of expropriation.”/PN Today Amular will meet both PECO and MORE Power corporate officersminus their respective legal counsels for a chamber meeting.
Gumarin also ordered that Guimaras residents who came from Metro Manila and other areas that have local Covid-19 transmissions may be allowed to enter provided that they shall undergo mandatory self-quarantine for 20 days under the supervision of the rural health unit concerned./PN “Ang Manggahan isa ka big event nga naga-encourage sa pagtabok sang tourists sa isla sang Guimaras, wherein economically alive ang amon ang activity because sang Manggahan,” she said, adding the cancellation of the festival will leave a big impact on the province. Manggahan Festival, slated May 11 to 22, pays tribute to the island’s main export – sweet mangoes. ILOILO City – The 2020 edition of Guimaras’ Manggahan Festival has been scrapped due to the threat of coronavirus disease 2019, Provincial Tourism officer Liberty Ferrer said. The month-long celebration lures 60,000 to 90,000 tourists during the event proper. On Friday, Gov. Samuel Gumarin issued Executive Order 32 that temporarily suspends the entry or tours of guests from Metro Manila and other areas that may be affected by COVID-19.
“If you want to be on top of the laws that’s a red card. We got nothing out of that moment.” The resulting free-kick led to the decisive goal and Ivanovic was involved. His header was punched out unconvincingly by Howard to Willian, who struck. Martinez added: “If you want to analyse that action (when it leads to the goal) it’s even more hurtful.” Mourinho has already shown his displeasure at Diego Costa being suspended retrospectively for three matches for stamping on Liverpool’s Emre Can. And the Blues boss continues to imply his side are unfairly treated and two decisions went in favour of Everton in the opening quarter of the contest. Chelsea might have had a fourth-minute penalty when the ball hit Steven Naismith’s arm and Everton had another reprieve when Barry fouled Juan Cuadrado and Eden Hazard in quick succession, but was booked only for the first offence. Mourinho added: “I’m tired of stories and I’m never tired of football. Football is emotion and what we had here today. “A discussion because of a red card, a red card that should be given in the first half, because Barry should be sent off in the first half. “He pulled Hazard. The second yellow card should be given there.” Mourinho had no complaints with referee Moss’ performance. “I think it’s a clear penalty. I also think the referee had a fantastic performance,” the Blues boss added. “The official that disallowed the goal, it was a fantastic decision.” The Blues were indebted to Petr Cech, who was chosen in goal ahead of Thibaut Courtois and twice saved from Romelu Lukaku, the second when the former Blues striker was four yards out. Mourinho, who made a point of going to Cech at full-time, said: “He touched the ball twice. He was a spectator. In the first half it’s a very good save and in the second half it’s a super save.” Mourinho explained Cech was chosen due to Courtois being fatigued and early uncertainty over the health of John Terry, who was ill on the morning of the game. While the Blues boss had reasons to be unhappy, he was thrilled with the result which kept his side seven points clear of Manchester City ahead of a rare weekend off and a Champions League last-16 first-leg at Paris St Germain. “I don’t remember a team being champions without a couple of victories in the last minute,” he said. “Every time I won a league title we had a couple of matches we won in the last minute. It was the first time this season. So, so happy with the points.” Martinez felt Muhamed Besic’s early booking was “soft” and set a standard which was not maintained. The Toffees boss said: “The first booking after five minutes is soft. And that sets a level. You’re thinking there’s going to be 12, 13 bookings. “If you’re going to give that level you’ve got to be consistent and unfortunately that wasn’t the case. “Then Gareth Barry gets a booking. Yes, it’s a free-kick, but the player (Hazard) decides to stop, decides to referee the game.” Martinez rued returning to Merseyside beaten. “The performance didn’t deserve to end up with a negative result,” he said. “We produced probably the two best chances in the game. Petr Cech’s reflexes were the difference.” Willian struck a last-minute winner, but the main talking point occurred after Nemanja Matic thought he had scored four minutes from time, only for the deflected strike to be ruled out for offside against Ivanovic, who had blocked the view of Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard. Tempers flared when Gareth Barry then tripped Willian, earning a second yellow card, and Ivanovic motioned his head towards McCarthy in the resulting fracas. The Everton substitute was booked for his part in the melee, but Ivanovic avoided censure from referee Jonathan Moss and could face retrospective action from the Football Association. Mourinho, who was last month fined £25,000 for saying there was a “clear campaign” against Chelsea, was not prepared to discuss the possibility the Serbia defender could be banned. Mourinho said: “I’m concerned with my reaction, because one more question I leave. And after that you are not happy. The next question for that story I have to go.” Mourinho had earlier told BT Sport: “Did Branislav Ivanovic go in with his head? Don’t make me laugh. Don’t make me laugh.” And in an interview with the BBC, when asked if he would punish a player if replays showed he had committed an offence, the Portuguese ended the interview, saying: “Sorry. See you tomorrow.” Everton boss Roberto Martinez felt Ivanovic should have been dismissed. The Spaniard said: “If you look at the images Ivanovic’s behaviour is wrong. That shouldn’t be allowed. “He grabs James McCarthy around his neck in a very forceful manner, then he puts his head against him when James McCarthy never reacted one single bit. Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho threatened to walk out of his post-match media conference when asked about an apparent headbutt by Branislav Ivanovic on Everton’s James McCarthy in the Premier League leaders’ 1-0 win at Stamford Bridge.

The diminutive Spaniard believes if Arsenal can retain the focus which was lacking from their early part of last season, then they can be genuine challengers for Chelsea’s crown. “We would obviously like to prepare ourselves for possibly for a better campaign in the Champions League and the Premier League,” he said on the club’s official website. “One of the things the team has to focus on more is mental toughness and consistency. “There have been games that we have not won that we should have, so we have to be more consistent to get to the next level.” Arsenal head to the Far East for the Barclays Asia Trophy Singapore in mid-July, and will open the domestic campaign against Chelsea in the FA Community Shield at Wembley on August 2. The Gunners host West Ham in their opening Premier League fixture. Former captain Thierry Henry believes Arsenal have shown signs of making progress – but accepts the team can only be judged on how they perform in the Barclays Premier League next season. Following the Gunners’ failure to breakdown Chelsea in their goalless draw at the Emirates Stadium on April 26, which all but ended any outside hopes of a late title surge, Henry claimed his old side needed a “new spine” if they were to challenge again for the championship. The club’s record goalscorer, who led the ‘Invincibles’ side of 2003-04, has since softened the stance given in his role as a pundit for Sky Sports. Henry, 37, continues to stress Arsenal must make “a couple of additions” in key areas, but is certain the squad are moving quickly in the right direction. “It’s a difficult task to win the FA Cup back to back, but they have done that,” he told Arsenal Player. “You could see right from the start (against Villa) that Arsenal were going to win the game, and that made it easier for us fans to watch – it was less nerve-racking than the year before. “So the progress is there, now what we are waiting for is the consistency in the league because that is very important. That is where you can judge a team, in the league. “Having said that, our generation started by winning the cup and went on to win a double and stayed unbeaten – that is all I can hope for this group to do.” Midfielder Santi Cazorla thrived in the number 10 role during the closing weeks of the campaign. The Gunners ended the 2014-15 campaign with a successful defence of the FA Cup at Wembley, having secured third place in the table and with it automatic qualification for the Champions League. Arsene Wenger is expected to strengthen the squad in the summer, with a deal said to be close for veteran Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech while Monaco midfielder Geoffrey Kondogbia is another potential target.

Latest Posts State budget vs. job creation – January 22, 2015 BAR HARBOR — Hoping to build on the success of the indoor season, the Mount Desert Island High School outdoor track team has been going through the preseason paces. Many of the same teams that MDI competed against during the winter will be strong this spring. MDI’s head track coach, Ian Braun, brings back a good balance of young and old, some proven talent and some cross-sport athletes who, he feels, will give MDI’s competition a run for their money.The number of athletes is roughly the same as in the past, holding steady at nearly 80 participants. “We have got some good numbers, 40 boys and 39 girls,” said Coach Braun. “It is a good mixture of some veterans and some younger kids. We are a pretty balanced team.”The boys’ team will garner most of its points from the field events such as vaulting, jumping, and throwing. “We have some good jumpers. We have a really good vaulting crew with Derek Rothenheber and Tucker Smith. They both placed at the state meet in indoor track,” Coach Braun said. “Plus we have Ben Cummings who placed at the outdoor state meet last year. Corey Hodgkins also did well vaulting last year. We have a good crew of high jumpers as well that should give us some depth during the regular season. Ben Cummings made the state meet last year, said Coach Braun. “We have Dan Hales in the shotput and Camden Fernald in the discus. Both scored at last year’s outdoor state meet. So we have some proven field event people and that is really going to carry us.”Coach Braun sees the track as the primary point platform for the girls’ outdoor track squad. “We have Danielle Hutchins who has done very well in the sprinting events in Eastern Maine and at the state level, probably the fastest girl in the history of the PVC. We have some behind her like Destiny Kanu,” Coach Braun said. “And of course on the distance team we have a good distance crew with Heather Spurling, Kymry Brooks, and Kaitlyn Russell.”This is placeholder textThis is placeholder textOverall, things look positive for the Trojans going into the final sports season of the 2008-2009 school year. “We should be a competitive team,” Coach Braun said. “We have some point scorers on both the boys and the girls teams.” For more sports stories, pick up a copy of the Mount Desert Islander.

(BBC) – Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson has won the Football Writers’ Association Men’s Footballer-of-the-Year award.The 30-year-old midfielder, who led Liverpool to their first league title in 30 years this season, received more than a quarter of the votes.“As grateful as I am I don’t feel like I can accept this on my own,” he said.“I owe a lot to so many people but none more so than my current team-mates, who have been incredible and deserve this every bit as much as I do.”Liverpool team-mates Virgil van Dijk and Sadio Mane, Manchester City’s Kevin de Bruyne and Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford also finished in the top five.On Wednesday Henderson, who is recovering from a knee injury, received the Premier League trophy from Reds legend Sir Kenny Dalglish at a near-empty Anfield.Henderson added: “I accept (the award) on behalf of this whole squad, because without them I’m not in a position to be receiving this honour. These lads have made me a better player – a better leader and a better person.“If anything I hope those who voted for me did so partly to recognise the entire team’s contribution.”Henderson had also lifted the FIFA Club World Cup trophy for the first time in December.Off the pitch, Henderson has helped raise money for the NHS as part of the #PlayersTogether initiative.Arsenal and Netherlands striker Vivianne Miedema was named the Football Writers’ Association Women’s Footballer-of-the-Year earlier this month.
Alessondra Parra’s opponents were confused. And they had good reason. As she warmed up across the court for a doubles match with partner Simone Kalhorn, they saw the right-hander take a few left-handed serves.‘The girls across the net were like, ‘What the hell? What’s going on? Did I just see them hit a left-handed serve?” Parra said.The Syracuse tennis team’s opponents see left-handed serves often. It’s all part of head coach Luke Jensen’s game plan to have each of his players be able to serve with both hands.Jensen was the first-ever player to serve with both hands on the professional tour. And so he was given the moniker ‘Dual Hand Luke.’Jensen’s skill added an element to his game many opponents could not deal with. It was so effective that when Jensen became the Orange’s head coach, he wanted to implement a similar type of creative tennis to the program.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textNow, five years later, players know that when they are recruited to play at SU, they will be given the task of learning to serve from both sides.‘It keeps it fresh,’ Jensen said. ‘It’s not the same old forehand and backhands or the same old practice. You’re learning shots and tactics in a forward movement of the game, so when you leave, you’re armed to play anybody. We’re going to push you and test you with these shots in competition.’Jensen said the Orange is the only college team he knows of that implements this unique style of play. The learning curve is different for all players, but Jensen explained it takes two or three months on average for players to be comfortable enough to use it in a game situation.Freshman Eva Raszkiewicz had no idea what she was getting into when she signed her National Letter of Intent merely 24 hours before school began. Prior to her decision, she never thought she would actually be expected to serve with her weak hand by the end of her collegiate career.‘Even if I joke around with my friends and serve lefty, I’m really bad,’ Raszkiewicz said. ‘I came here, and I started doing it, and it was really bad in the beginning, but I’m getting better at it. Still not great, but my lefty overhead is coming along, so it’s a good start.’Players such as Parra and Emily Harman, the No. 1 and No. 3 singles players for the Orange, respectively, have already mastered serving with both hands. With three years under Jensen’s wing, Parra and Harman have baffled their opponents with the occasional lefty serve.Although the tactic is used sparingly during matches, if it is used at the right moment, it can truly surprise an opponent.‘If you switch between lefty and righty in a match, it totally throws off your opponent,’ Parra said. ‘Mentally, if your opponent sees you throw in a lefty, not only are they confused, but they are caught off guard and they start thinking about it.’The left-handed serve is effective for many reasons, Harman said. Often, players get in a rhythm with their opponent. They begin to time their swing off their opponent’s toss and motion to strike. But when all that is done with the other hand, that focus is broken and the rhythm is interrupted.Once the ball hits the court, the ball spins in a different fashion. Since the player sees a slow shot, she feels she can attack the ball, but often the opponent overplays and misjudges the ball, hitting it long or into the net.The left-handed serve simply adds another weapon to Syracuse’s arsenal.‘We do this every day, so it’s not a big deal for us to pull out a lefty in a doubles or singles match,’ Harman said. ‘We do it all the time. That’s a scary factor from their point because they don’t see that every day.’firstname.lastname@example.org Published on February 8, 2011 at 12:00 pm Comments Facebook Twitter Google+
