They have to help each other,” Jarencio said in Filipino on the heels of the Batang Pier’s 104-115 defeat to NLEX.ADVERTISEMENT OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ’a duplicitous move’ – Lacson OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ’a duplicitous move’ – Lacson Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. MOST READ Jiro Manio arrested for stabbing man in Marikina Jarencio didn’t deny that he was dismayed with how bad GlobalPort’s defense was in the game.“This team is built to be 70 percent defense. But in this game, it was the opposite, we were 70 percent offense, 30 percent defense.”Jarencio, though, feels that the Batang Pier were just a few breaks away from nabbing the victory, but committed costly miscues in the end game.“We had bad breaks, two consecutive turnovers, plus Larry (Fonacier) made a big three-point shot when we went zone. That was when they were able to pullaway. We’re not pointing fingers at anybody, but that’s what they call the breaks of the game,” he said.Despite the defeat, Jarencio is charging the loss to experience as he expects his wards to come out stronger in their next game against Ginebra on January 7.ADVERTISEMENT
The community of Uitvlugt on the West Coast of Demerara will see the construction of a new Gurukula (learning institution) which is expected to be completed by the year 2020. A ground-breaking ceremony was consecrated with a havan on February 4, 2018, to commence the construction of the building. The land, measuring 300 feet by 100 feet, was donated by the Uitvlugt Arya Samaj.According to Dr Satish Prakash, who spearheads the operations, the building will function as a residential school but following the lines of an ashram as it relates to discipline. The curriculum will be dual-secular and religious and students will live at the institution.The proposed plan of the completed buildingThe aim of the secular curriculum will be to assist those persons who were not successful at their Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) examination and wish to rewrite eight of them, so as to gain admission at a university. Dual curriculum caters to CXC subjects, Hindi, Sanskrit, Shastras, yoga and music.Another objective of the organisation is to make it a centre for social service, and also function as a health centre, providing basic health care.Around 400 persons were present at the ceremony. Funds were donated for the construction and many have pledged to donate in the future to complete the institution.Dr Prakash aims at improving the moral values amongst Guyanese which have been diminished under the influence of suicides, broken homes, alcoholism, school dropouts, crime and economic slide. He will also lead the recruitment of teachers. This institution will be the first of its kind in the Caribbean and students will set across Guyana after studying to serve their society.
Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa’s appointees to the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority include the head of the ACLU of Southern California, which has sued the city numerous times over homeless issues. The appointment of Ramona Ripston, made last week and referred to the City Council on Tuesday, prompted some council members to call for the city attorney to look at potential conflicts of interest stemming from the lawsuits. “I would be concerned there would be perceived or real conflicts of interest,” said Councilman Bernard Parks, who as a former chief of police was involved in some of the litigation. The mayor, himself a former local ACLU leader, does not believe there is a conflict that would keep Ripston from serving, his spokeswoman Diana Rubio said. Councilwoman Jan Perry has been criticized by the ACLU for supporting police sweeps aimed at homeless people downtown, the subject of some past litigation. Perry, who said such police action is sometimes necessary to bring services to the mentally ill, said that the money handled by the Homeless Services Authority is “inextricably intertwined with policy” on homelessness. Perry said she will seek a city attorney review of potential conflicts for both Ripston and Mirell. Councilman Eric Garcetti, who chairs the Housing, Community and Economic Development Committee, which will consider the nominations, said he will “keep an eye” on such conflict of interest reviews but that he considers Ripston to be an excellent appointee. “Some of the best, most qualified people for city posts have engaged in yesterday’s battles,” he said. “We have to see if today’s is a conflict, but we don’t want people who are so sanitary that they’ve never been involved in the issues they’re confronting.” Villaraigosa also tapped for the panel well-known former First AME Church pastor Cecil L. “Chip” Murray and University of Southern California administrator and former City Ethics Commission leader Rebecca Avila.

The American Civil Liberties Union has one outstanding homeless case against the city, Ripston said, that concerns an ordinance making it a crime for people to sleep on the street. The organization lost the case but is appealing. The litigation has been related to city policy, Ripston said, while the Homeless Services Authority, a joint city-county agency, provides funding and guidance to homeless service providers. “I just think there absolutely is no conflict and I’m surprised that they think there is,” she said.
