Inquirer 7 top UAAP 80 women’s volleyball players: Week 6

first_imgSports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next LATEST STORIES Every week, INQUIRER Sports will be ranking the seven best performers in the UAAP Season 80 women’s volleyball tournament. The author will base the rankings on the players’ team standings, statistics, and the intangibles that don’t appear on the stat sheets.ADVERTISEMENT Nueva Ecija warehouse making fake cigarettes raided, 29 Chinese workers nabbed Jiro Manio arrested for stabbing man in Marikina Despite winning Season 79’s Best Digger Award and the Season 77 Rookie of the Year, Arado’s talent was overshadowed by UE’s pile of losses.And now that the Lady Warriors have made their comeuppance in the league, everyone had no choice but to take notice of Arado’s excellence.Arado was the biggest thorn on the side of the Golden Tigresses when she tallied up monstrous numbers on the defensive end with 28 excellent digs and 32 excellent receptions.In comparison, UST’ libero Rica Rivera had 17 excellent digs and 12 excellent receptions.Arado’s efforts saw the Lady Warriors win their first game against the Golden Tigresses since the 1993-1994 academic year and UE’s first back-to-back wins since 2012.2.

China, India Commit to Liberia Recovery Agenda

first_imgPresident Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has disclosed that the People’s Republic of China and India have committed themselves to helping Liberia recover from the lashes of the Ebola virus disease (EVD).Speaking upon her return from what she described as successful trip to the two top Asian countries, President Sirleaf noted that the countries have made huge commitments that would be of great impacts to the development drive of Liberia, but only when Liberians are willing to fulfill their end of the agreement.President Sirleaf made the comments at the Sinkor Assembly of God Church during a Thanksgiving Service in commemoration of her 77th birth anniversary and successful mission and safe return to the country.President Sirleaf visited India, where she formed part of the 54 African Heads of States that attended the India-Africa Summit; there after paying a lengthy state visit to China where she met with that country’s authorities and business community. President Sirleaf said at the Thanksgiving service that the governments of India and China have committed themselves to support Liberia’s development efforts, but Liberians must be prepared to help themselves.“Unless we demonstrate the preparedness to help ourselves, others won’t do for us,” she said.The President said she would reveal the contents of her agreements with the leaders of the two countries when she addresses the nation this week.The two countries, she said, resolved that Liberia will remain one of the nations with which they will remain fully engaged.Reports indicated that while President Sirleaf was in China, she held bilateral talks with Chinese President Xi Jinping, discussed several areas of partnership and cooperation and sign three bilateral agreements.China’s State Council Premier, Li Keqiang assured President Sirleaf that all outstanding projects in Liberia, which include the construction of a Ministerial Complex, Annex to National Legislature and the refurbishment of the nation’s major soccer stadium-the Samuel K. Doe Sports Complex, will be fully implemented as scheduled. He said the implementation of these projects will begin shortly.“We are well informed about Liberia’s history and characteristics and recalled that China was far worse than Liberia after its own wars,” said Premier Keqiang during a meeting with President Sirleaf in Beijing.He assured President Sirleaf that China was ready to help Liberia in the health sector. He said that investment in agriculture in addition to fisheries, wood processing and manufacturing complemented by a massive re-planting program as well as the establishment of processing industries to add value to the many natural resources the country is endowed with can certainly transform the country.Premier Keqiang indicated that China has effective technologies for high yield in agro-business and rice production which, when harnessed, can help Liberia create jobs for the young people, ensure food sufficiency and achieve food security. He expressed the hope that China-Liberia relations can be of mutual benefits or a win-win situation for both countries.He assured her of a very productive relationship between China and Liberia on the one hand and China and Africa on the other, and praised President Sirleaf for the excellent leadership demonstrated with national and international support to defeat Ebola.He noted that President Sirleaf has taken China-Liberia relations very seriously since her ascendency, adding that China appreciates her.The visit to China was President Sirleaf’s second State Visit since she took up the country leadership 2006 and was described by the Chinese leader as “very successful.”Meanwhile, President Sirleaf told the gathering at the A.G Church that her visits afforded Liberia the opportunity to appreciate how those countries are tackling poverty, and learn from their experiences in terms of how they have transformed in just two decades and are now vying for super-powership.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Starr Computers to soon open kids’ discovery department

first_imgStarr Computers Inc will soon open its new Kids Discovery department, which is expected to accelerate more modern classrooms in Guyana through the use of technology.The new department, located in a section of Starr’s Brickdam location, is scheduled to be opened next month.According to President of Starr’s, Mike Mohan, the department will be providing smart devices which children from as young as four years old would be able to use.“On the left hand side of the store you might have noticed an innovation centre; that is a new department we are going to be opening up. We are going to be launching it at the end of the month. We are going to be targeting education and the development of modern classrooms in Guyana,” Mohan revealed.This would be possible with the introduction of Starr’s economy tablets, which will be sold at affordable prices.By combining Lenovo with other laser technologies, Starr has developed a new, modern classroom solution. As such, the computer company will also be offering a larger variety of Lenovo products than what has been on offer for the past 14 years.“The most important thing about Lenovo in Guyana is that they give us tremendous support, so that we could give the customers best type of products that (they) want. Lenovo, towards the end of 2018, (became) the largest manufacturers of computers. This company has been going places, they keep on innovating every year, they keep on changing and upgrading, and they have gotten a much wider variety of choices,” Mohan said.Mike Thornburn, Caribbean Hybrid Representative of Lenovo, said the company is currently preparing, as Guyana is soon to benefit from the oil and gas sector, to produce high end work stations.“We partner with oil and gas companies around the world currently, and we produced really high-end work stations that offer them the ability to scale and go out there and find more oil and gas specifically. And so what we are doing with Starr Computers is working with them to ensure that they are ready with parts in Guyana, so that if anything goes wrong, they can service them; and to make sure that they stay up and running throughout that process,” Thornburn explained.last_img read more

2nd bust, same as the 1st

first_imgBy Dale McFeatters Remember March 10, 2000? Neither do a lot of other people. That’s the official end of the dot-com boom and the start of the dot-com bust. The bubble burst that day. A lot of companies with wildly inventive names that promised “the next big thing,” whatever that was, disappeared, leaving behind fancy open-plan offices and recreational equipment. They all shared grandiose dreams and no revenues. Unfortunately, the hard rules of economics still applied. Did we learn from this experience? Of course not. We’re Americans. We like booms, so much so that we quickly forget the inevitable chastening bust. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.Railroads, oil wells, transistors, holding companies, conglomerates, traction companies, aerospace companies, Florida real estate. We love this stuff. Not that people don’t profit from booms and busts. A lot of people profited big from the Gold Rush but it wasn’t the prospectors but the people who sold stuff to them. Did the prospectors learn from this? No, they rushed off to Alaska. Many analysts believe that it was pent up demand for another boom that led to the bubble and subsequent bust of the subprime mortgage market and the consequent housing slump. “Subprime,” it turns out, is a fancy way of saying, “You ain’t gonna get your money back.” The very astute business writer Allen Sloan analyzed one subprime offering by a respected investment banking house. Wait until you hear it. You’ll be kicking yourself, asking, “How did I miss out on this?” It would be like getting in on Enron in September 2001. The company sold shares in a package of second mortgages, largely on homes in California. A second mortgage means that someone else is first in line to get the money if there is a foreclosure. The homeowners’ average equity was 0.17 percent (20 percent is a standard down payment on a conventional “prime,” so to speak, first mortgage, but where’s the fun in that?), and in over half the loans, the borrowers’ incomes or assets had never been verified and neither was whether they were even living in the homes. Inevitably, this particular investment, and many others as well, tanked in dramatic, bustlike fashion. So what is the next highly speculative investment for capital in search of excitement? Do the words “Silicon Valley startup” and “initial public offering” do anything for you? Yes, the dot-coms are back and beginning to form a bubble. The New York Times reports that Facebook, which it delicately calls “financially unproven,” is being valued by investors at $15 billion. This time, however, investors vow that things will be different. Right. They were undeterred by eBay’s admission that the $3.1 billion it paid for Skype was way too high, by about $1.4 billion. Once again the investors are flocking to startups that have no revenues or even prospects for revenues. One entrepreneur, according to the Times, “says that the company was not currently focused on making money and that no one in the company was even working on how to do so.” Talk about a business plan. Another entrepreneur said he and others “had begun to think that the financing game is best played by avoiding actual revenues – since that only limits the imagination of investors.” And what do you call an investor who overlooks the fact that the company doesn’t actually do anything to let his imagination run wild? How about “sucker”? March 10, 2000. It seems like only tomorrow. Dale McFeatters is a Washington-based editorial writer and columnist for Scripps Howard News Service.

Early, is on the committee himself and reiterated his gratitude to the workers and volunteers who have worked tirelessly for months.The popular publican, fisherman and Island spokesperson also praised the level of goodwill from so many people with no connection to Arranmore is astounding and the festival is now a huge weekend on the Arranmore calendar.Early added, “Last year was a bit if a concern to locals as they were not sure of what kind of clientele the festival would attract but it was a total success and the festival goers showed the people and Arranmore itself total respect.They were a credit and on the back of last years success many islanders are coming home for the weekend some from as far as Dubai. “The forecast is great for Arranmore this weekend so it’s the place to be.For more information and tickets see www.swellfestival.com.TAKE ME TO THE ISLAND – SWELL MUSIC FESTIVAL SET TO CAUSE A RIPPLE ON ARRANMORE was last modified: July 8th, 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:arranmoreConcertsEntertainmentFeaturesislandJerry EarlyMUSICnewsSwell Festivallast_img read more
