Photo from Fiba.comThe Philippines hosting the 2023 Fiba World Cup is still be five years away, but San Miguel coach Leo Austria still expects June Mar Fajardo to be a major part of the national team at that time.“[2023] is still a long time and there will be a lot of changes that might happen. It depends during that span of time on the players that will develop, but definitely, I think June Mar Fajardo will be a candidate when that time comes,” he said.ADVERTISEMENT Still at the peak of his powers, Fajardo is still a mainstay on coach Chot Reyes’ roster for the 2019 Fiba World Cup Asian qualifiers with his resume boosted by his accomplishments in the PBA as a four-time MVP and a five-time champion.And barring any major injuries, Austria is expecting the Cebuano giant to continue having no letups in the growth of his game as the buildup for the country’s hosting of the global basketball extravaganza approaches.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkFajardo will be 33 years old by 2023.Austria also acknowledged that Reyes has an abundance of talent at his disposal with 7-footers Kai Sotto and AJ Edu both part of the “23-for-23” cadet pool.

You can never know what will happen,” Austria said.That’s why Austria has his full belief that Fajardo will still be donning the national tri-colors come 2023.“Maybe if June Mar wins a fifth of sixth MVP, they will think about it,” he said. “We want nothing but to help Gilas be better because they’re representing our homeland.”ADVERTISEMENT OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ’a duplicitous move’ – Lacson View comments Go for Gold adds Kent Salado MOST READ LATEST STORIES OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ’a duplicitous move’ – Lacson 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 Meralco ‘never the same’ after Almazan injury in PBA Finals Steam emission over Taal’s main crater ‘steady’ for past 24 hours Scottie Thompson also worthy of Finals MVP, thinks Cone Brian Heruela arrival bolsters Phoenix backcourt, defense Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

first_imgLANCASTER – An ex-convict and a state prison inmate face life in prison without the possibility of parole after being convicted of murdering two Antelope Valley men in a 2003 car-to-car shooting. William Hogan, 39, and Robert Campos, 25, were convicted of killing the two 27-year-old men – Richard David House of California City and James MacArthur Madden of Lancaster – and wounding a woman who was riding in their car at Avenue J-8 and 12th Street West. “The motive was never presented at trial. It never came out in evidence,” Deputy District Attorney Benny Osorio said. “It may have been drug-related, but we don’t know.” A Los Angeles Superior Court jury deliberated about two days before deciding Monday that Hogan and Campos are guilty of murder and attempted murder. Jurors also convicted Hogan of felony evasion of arrest and Campos of being a felon with a firearm. karen.maeshiro@dailynews.com (661) 267-5744160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Prosecutors decided not to seek the death penalty. Sentencing for the two men was set for May 12. The victims’ Ford Taurus sedan was making a turn at the intersection on Aug. 6, 2003, when a second car pulled alongside and at least one person inside began shooting. Campos is already in prison for drugs and weapons offenses. Hogan, a Palmdale construction worker, was chased down and arrested nine days after the slayings. He fled from sheriff’s deputies first in a vehicle on city streets, then on foot in backyards. Hogan has a prison record dating back to 1991 for crimes involving drugs, vehicle theft and possession of stolen property. last_img read more

first_imgThe Government have launched a new initiative aimed at tackling the alarming levels of obesity in Ireland, with experts suggesting Ireland are on course to be the fattest nation in the world per capita. The government plan to tax fizzy drinks, while PE has been introduced as a subject on the Leaving Certificate.However, health experts predict that a levy on those who like fizzy drinks will do little to tackle the serious issue of obesity in Ireland. Minister for Health Simon Harris, issued the stark warning that Ireland risks becoming the fattest nation in the world unless some radical changes are made.Minister Harris said obesity is a ‘ticking time-bomb’ and said in some regards the bomb has already been detonated.National eating guidelines, calorie posting legislation and the prioritization of obesity services within HSE plans form part of the plan, which will be implemented over the next decade.A clinical lead to guide obesity policy within the health service will be appointed and a “whole of school” approach to healthy lifestyles is promised in collaboration with the Department of Education. A report in The Irish Times relayed the following information: Sixty per cent of Irish adults, and one in four children, are overweight or obese. The cost to society is estimated at more than €1 billion a year.The State’s foremost obesity expert, Prof Donal O’Shea, said the plan “could not be more different” from the 2006 report of the national obesity taskforce, on which he served. “That plan was dead in the water within the year and we weren’t even allowed hold a meeting to discuss it.”The current plan contains specific targets and timelines and the appetite for tackling obesity is much greater, he said. While he was not happy the sugar tax was not being introduced quickly, he recognised the need for compromise.Prof O’Shea said there are 300 people waiting for weight-reducing surgery in his clinic in Loughlinstown and 150 in another clinic in Galway. This year, he will perform 40 surgeries, the highest number so far, and a second surgeon may be appointed shortly.Mr Harris said there was no question of the plan having been watered down to suit the food industry. The Government was not ruling out legislation in the area, but wanted to begin with a collaborative approach. Legislation requiring restaurants to post the calorie content of meals will be law by the end of next year, his officials confirmed.Minister of State for Health Promotion Marcella Corcoran Kennedy said the new document was a plan with specific timelines and “not designed to sit on the shelf”.Ms Corcoran Kennedy acknowledged she has had to adjust her lifestyle to deal with weight issues. “I never thought I’d look forward to the day when I was overweight, by no longer being obese but I’m on the way there.”Ireland well on course to be the fattest nation in the world was last modified: September 23rd, 2016 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)last_img read more

first_imgManchester United defeated Leicester City 2-1 on the 2018/19 season opening day1- Jose Mourinho doing his best to drop super star manager demeanour:The criticism the former self styled Special One meted on his players in the aftermath of their 1-4 International Champions Cup drubbing at the hands of Liverpool pointed to a great coach trapped in  glory of yesteryear.It was a ‘Me Against Those Hopeless Players’ mentality that had dogged his rival Pep Guardiola in his maiden season at the Etihad.Friday night witnessed a wiser Mourinho  burying the hatchet with star midfielder Paul Pogba.  Handing a start to the Frenchman just four days after he reported to duty following Les Bleus World Cup triumph,  then crowning it by bestowing upon him the United captaincy showed Mourinho  is rediscovering the mojo that helped him transform average players into world beaters.2- Step Up From Championship Not Too Steep:Leicester City attacking midfielder James Maddison yet again underlined how exaggerated the gulf in quality between Premier League players and their Championship counterparts is.Featuring in his first EPL appearance since a £22m move from Norwich City, Maddison outshone United’s £47m Brazilian Fred and team mate Ricardo Pereira in the battle of newcomers. He even kept Jamie Vardy, another player who made a seamless transition from Championship journeyman to Premier League star, on the bench.3- Ben Chillwell For England:Watching in the Old Trafford stands was England boss Gareth Southgate and his assistant Steve Holland.They will have noted with satisfaction left backs Luke Shaw, who scored his first senior career goal, and his opposite Chillwell, whose marauding runs into United’s half were from the top drawer. Southgate has identified a successor to Ashley Young.4- Daniel Amartey Pantomime Villain:Watching from an African focal point, i found Leicester City’s  Ghanaian defender appalling. How cavalier can a player get? In addition to conceding a needless spot kick right from kick off, Amartey was all over the place throughout 60 forgettable minutes. By the time he was replaced by Rachid Ghezzal, I was sick of the sight of him.This is a player who can benefit from a loan move elsewhere.Comments Tags: leicester cityMan Utoplast_img read more
