Slaughter more than ready to play bigger role for Ginebra Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Tenorio, however, could not deny that Ginebra’s will to win drove them to win, as he himself unloaded 15 points, eight assists, five rebounds, and five steals in the game.And for him, all the credit should go to Cone.“Coach Tim is pushing us everyday,” he said. “We weren’t solid on this game and we’re not expecting it right away, but we know that it’s a process. We have to get better every day, every practice.”“We’ll improve more. We’ll look at the videos and see our mistakes for us to get better, for us to be a playoff team, and a championship contender also. This is not an assessment na that Ginebra is a strong team even though we have injuries. This is not the barometer. We want to be solid like how we were in the championship and in the playoffs.

Yes, we won the game, but we need to improve on a lot as a team,” Tenorio said on Monday.ADVERTISEMENT
The Civil Law Court on Friday, June 20, threatened to bring a contempt charge against senior staff members of the Ministry of Justice (MOJ), if they insist on not to turn over three vehicles to the court by today, Monday, June 23.The court decided to engage the prosecuting arm of government, the MOJ, after the Ministry of Finance, which had originally confiscated said vehicles, disregarded its order to turn the vehicles over.The vehicles in question, VIN#5TFUYSF11AX146505, VIN#KN8NU73C67U01510 and VIN#2FNDK3JCABA20110, are owned by George Slangar, a used car importer.An order from the Civil Law Court instructing the Ministry of Finance (MOF) to turn over three vehicles in its possession was ignored by the Ministry.The Court’s order, dated June 11, a copy of which is in the possession of the Daily Observer, instructed the Finance Ministry to deliver the vehicles to the Sheriff of the Court in keeping with the law, and to appear on Monday, June 16, at 10 a.m.Unfortunately, the Ministry did not appear before Judge Emery Paye last Monday, neither did it turn over the vehicles.The order partly read, “Respondents or defendants, MOF are hereby ordered to deliver the chattels, the subject of these proceedings to the sheriff of the Honorable Court as in keeping with the law.”It further reads,” The Sheriffs are commanded to summon the defendants to appear before the Court on the June 16, 2014, at the precise hour of 10 a.m. to answer to the complaint of Mr. George Slangar, a used car importer.”In their complaint to the Court, the lawyer representing Slangar alleged that they are owners of three vehicles (VIN#5TFUYSF11AX146505, VIN#KN8NU73C67U01510 and VIN#2FNDK3JCABA20110) imported from the United States of America (USA).They alleged that they have paid all government taxes as required by law, and have the right to take delivery of said vehicles from the Free Port of Monrovia.Unfortunately, the vehicles are presently at the Port under the custody of the Liberia National Police (LNP) in keeping with the Ministry of Finance’s communication dated January 17, 2014.Judge Paye has therefore decided to engage the MOJ, which is expected to in turn bring pressure to bear upon the Finance Ministry to release said vehicles.Instructions to the senior government officials, under the signature of Judge Emery Paye, ordered that the Acting Minister along with senior staff members, including the Director of the Liberia National Police (LNP), be made to appear before the Court today, at about 9:30 a.m.They are further instructed to show cause, if any, why they should not be held with contempt and punished for their failure to turn over the vehicles as ordered by the court.Judge Paye also ordered the MOJ to bring along the said vehicles.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
Over 30 Ebola survivors in Margibi County have committed themselves as volunteers for the PREVAIL Natural Ebola History Study that is ongoing at the JFK Medical Center.Speaking at a one-day social mobilization, community engagement and awareness training of communicators, mobilizers and project focal persons’ workshop conducted by the Liberia Crusaders for Peace (LCP) held in Margi County, LCP Administrator Yah Bryant said, the study is intended to help Ebola survivors by examining their many health problems.She said survivors that enroll in the study stand to benefit from free medical examination for any health complication they may face, and will be referred to appropriate medical care centers for treatment.Madam Bryant encouraged survivors to take up the challenge and encourage others to join the study.In an interview with several survivors, some explained their stories in tears.Lawrence Tumbey said, “I got infected on August 5, when I went to work at C. H. Rennie hospital and helped a man who was very sick.“On the 8th of that same month, I fell sick and was taken to an ETU while several people said I was going to die because I reported myself late to the center. I faced hell and lost all hope because 17 of my friends that got infected by the virus died right by me in the room.“I survived but I began to face serious problems with my stomach and now I think the Natural Ebola History Study will find solution for me.”Also telling her story was 57 year-old Jeneva Kennedy, (commonly called in Margibi Nation) who welcomed the PREVAIL study and promised to serve as a volunteer as well as encourage others to join the study.“I worked at C. H. Rennie Hospital as nurse and it was on the 20th of July last year, my colleagues at the hospital called me to carry on a delivery. I quickly rushed to the hospital and delivered a woman without using gloves and not knowing she was Ebola positive and after few days she was confirmed positive and died.“The last week of July I came down with all of the symptoms of Ebola and was sent to the ELWA ETU in Monrovia. So many people discouraged me from going, saying that I would die. But through the grace of God I survived the killer virus, while over 8 persons died in my presence,” Madam Kennedy explained.The Natural Ebola History Study is being carried out at the John F. Kennedy Medical Center, while Duport Road Health Center in Paynesville, C. H. Rennie Hospital in Kakata, Margibi County, and Redemption Hospital in New Kru Town will be opening soon to join the study.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)

So abee wait and a drunk man ah pass and he say me gon go an fine he. An the man go in the water and go right by the boat and hold he hand and bring he out the water an awe bathe am an carry he to the mortuary,” the 38-year-old widow said. The body was pulled from the water at about 14:00h.In tears, the mother of four said for the past seven trips at sea, her husband returned home without money.She explained that for several weeks she had no money and was hoping to see her husband in about a week. “The last time he go and spend 13 days and he come out last Thursday. Dem nah catch fish so he say he going look wan next boat.”Meanwhile, Harrypersaud said the destroyed boat had no insurance. “Most of the owners don’t take out insurance because you don’t get the kind of business. Sometimes you go out and come back without anything,” he added.

Jack Grealish Jack Grealish has been axed from Aston Villa’s squad for Saturday’s match against Watford as punishment for his off-field behaviour.The 20-year-old was pictured partying with friends last weekend following Villa’s 4-0 Premier League defeat to Everton at Goodison Park.Grealish, who has breached club discipline before, was ordered to train with the Under-21s by boss Remi Garde earlier this week.Now Garde has revealed that he will not consider the midfielder, who started against Everton, for selection this weekend.“He won’t be included in the squad for Watford,” said Garde.“(His actions) are not of the professional standard that I expect from my players. That is why Jack is training in the under-21 team.”Sometimes, players in every country ask to stay in the city where we are playing. It is not a problem for me, it can happen once or twice during a season.”The problem for me was not him not being on the bus.”He is not playing at the weekend and at this stage, I think that is enough.“Jack has got a lot of ability but he needs to improve his game and work at it.”Grealish was pictured earlier this year laid on his back in the street during a holiday in Tenerife, for which he was reprimanded by Villa.He has also been pictured partying in Marbella and seen inhaling nitrous oxide, known as laughing gas or ‘hippy crack’, from a balloon in a photograph taken last year. 1
Luke Shaw and Zlatan Ibrahimovic will travel to Stockholm Jose Mourinho has confirmed Manchester United’s Zlatan Ibrahimovic and his fellow injured team-mates will attend the Europa League final, but the Portuguese does not believe opponents Ajax should be there at all.Ibrahimovic’s season was ended in the second leg of the quarter-final win over Anderlecht last month when he sustained knee ligament damage which required surgery in the United States.It has robbed the 35-year-old Swede of a possible United swansong and the chance to write the perfect script in his homeland when United face his old club Ajax in Stockholm, though Mourinho has revealed Ibrahimovic will travel to Sweden to be at Wednesday’s game anyway.But Mourinho does not think the Dutch side should have ever been in the competition. Ajax started the season in the Champions League qualification rounds before a two-legged defeat to Russian side Rostov meant they dropped into the Europa League group stages, where United’s campaign also started.“They are a Champions League team; they come from the Champions League,” Mourinho said.“I always disagree with it, I think a team shouldn’t play two European competitions in the same season.“I think if a team goes to the Champions League and then doesn’t qualify, they should go home, they shouldn’t have the opportunity to play in the Europa League.“I think the Europa League competition is for teams that go to the Europa League in the beginning, like us.“We finished fifth (in last season’s Premier League), we went to the Europa League. We started in the Europa League from the beginning of the season and had to fight (to get) where we are.”Like United, Ajax have also played 14 games in this competition so will be able to sympathise with the gruelling route to Stockholm that Mourinho has often referenced.The Portuguese believes one thing such a schedule has done is foster a bond within his squad, which is why he is so keen for Ibrahimovic and fellow injured players Ashley Young, Luke Shaw and Marcos Rojo to be present.“Everyone goes,” Mourinho said of his travelling party.“We have a few on crutches but everyone goes. (We have a) fantastic group of players, fantastic spirit since the beginning of the season – a difficult run, lots of matches, we spent more time travelling, playing, in hotels, than at home.“Because 60-something (games) means 140 days in a hotel; half of the year we spent together and that is only possible when the spirit is amazing.“So everyone is going be there, crutches for Young, Shaw, Rojo, for Zlatan, but we all go together.” 1
