‘Our time is now’: Casey says Detroit Pistons have plenty of talent in place

first_imgCloudy skies over Luzon due to amihan If the personnel stays mostly the same, the Pistons will have to hope for better health — and Casey will have to look for areas for improvement. The Pistons were fifth in the league in 3-point percentage last season, but they were only 16th in attempts from beyond the arc.“We have to get up more 3s. We’ve got to play more of an analytical game,” Casey said. “Tom teases me all the time about being a modern man. No, it’s about wanting to win, more than anything else, and you have to adapt.”NOTES: Gores just finished his seventh season as owner. He was asked how long he is committed to the team. “Forever,” he responded. “This is not an equity deal.” … Stefanski talked a bit about Michigan coach John Beilein, who emerged as a candidate for the Pistons’ job but is remaining with the Wolverines . “Coach Beilein is an offensive genius in my mind,” Stefanski said. “I was mesmerized, because I’m a basketball guy, how good he is on the offensive end. … He has a pretty good job at Michigan with, what he’s telling me, a very good team coming back.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Jiro Manio arrested for stabbing man in Marikina Bicol riders extend help to Taal evacuees “I can hold my head high for what we built in Toronto,” Casey said. “That’s part of the journey. This is a new chapter.”The Pistons made the playoffs only once in four seasons under Van Gundy, who was also president of basketball operations. Detroit hired Casey to replace Van Gundy as coach, but it’s still unclear what the front office will look like going forward. Ed Stefanski was brought in as a senior executive reporting to owner Tom Gores. His job was to help with both the coaching search and the effort to reshape the team’s basketball operations.“We’re going through a process here. We’re thinking about, do we want to go a GM route? Do we want to get some younger guys in there and I can mentor them kind of thing? It’s fluid,” Stefanski said. “I’m going to be very influential in the front office.”The Pistons went 39-43 last season. They got off to a promising start before Jackson, their point guard, went down with an injury in late December. About a month later, Detroit acquired Griffin in a blockbuster trade, giving up the first-round pick and taking on the star forward’s big contract. That wasn’t enough to push the team into the postseason, and it seems unlikely the Pistons will be able to make any major changes to their roster in the short term.“I don’t see us making a huge deal right now,” Stefanski said.ADVERTISEMENT Taal victims get help from Kalayaan town In fight vs corruption, Duterte now points to Ayala, MVP companies as ‘big fish’ Jury of 7 men, 5 women selected for Harvey Weinstein rape trial 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 Neymar returns to training, Brazil guarantees he’s ready MOST READ Detroit Pistons new head coach Dwane Casey is introduced during an NBA basketball news conference in Detroit, Wednesday, June 20, 2018.

Casey inherits a team built around Blake Griffin, Andre Drummond and Reggie Jackson, but the roster has little flexibility and the team gave up its first-round draft pick this year to acquire Griffin.In other words, Detroit’s performance in 2018-19 may depend largely on what Casey can get out of a group that fell short under Van Gundy.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crown“I’m telling the guys now: We’re not developing, we’re not two or three years away,” Casey said. “We want to win right now.”Casey took the Detroit job after being fired by the Toronto Raptors.

City Hall employees protest non-payment of NIS, PAYE

first_img…Labour Union threatens to close markets, day care centres, kokersThe Guyana Labour Union (GLU), which represents close to 200 staffers of the Mayor& Councillors of the City of Georgetown (M&CC), has threatened to close the day care centres, markets, and even the kokers until City Hall remits the NIS contributions, PAYE deductions, and credit union dues withdrawn from the earnings of these workers but not paid over to the relevant agencies.The workers took to the pavement in from of City Hall on Monday to protest the actions of the M&CC Accounts Department. Shouting, “No pay no work!” the workers also demanded retroactive salaries owed them for the years 2015 to 2017, even as they also protested the non-allocation of uniform vouchers due them.“The guys them are out here for their salary and (their) three-year money; the NIS (money), the Credit Union, and them kind of thing. Them ain’t paying the money, so when people sick, they can’t go for nothing. The people sayin, ‘Go back to Council’, cause Council not payin the money,” a worker in the drainage andA section of the protesters outside of City Hall on Mondayengineering department told this publication.He added that the nonpayment of the workers’ salaries is becoming very frustrating, especially at this time of year, when parents are expected to buy school supplies for their children.Recardo Grant, another worker, said the workers have been promised that deductions made from their salaries would accordingly be remitted to the relevant agencies, but this has not been happening.“No NIS money have been paying for we, (and) no back pay… They only promising we…is long this man (King) deh pun this thing. We can’t eat promises; I can’t carry promises to the market,” Grant stated.Grant said City Hall owes some $100,000 in various payments to him.Nigel Bascom, who operates in the Solid Waste Department, complained, “This is injustice going on with us for the longest while. I working here for 10 years now and you ain’t getting nothing tangible; everything is just promises, promises, and nothing in coming out of it. They got a policy saying that workers is the most important asset, and this that they doing in showing nothing like that,” he declared. According to the man, his retroactive pay was due since September 2017. He told Guyana Times that of 27 months’ salary, the M&CC currently owes him and other workers about 13 to 15 months.Meanwhile, General Secretary of GLU, Carvil Duncan, explained to this publication that the union wrote to M&CC twice during this year, while detailing the issues that are affecting the workers. The letters seen by this newspaper were dated August 14 and July 9, 2018. They were both addressed to Town Clerk Royston King, who reportedly never responded. “…the uniform allowance for persons who used their own clothes when no uniform was provided, the non-payment of retroactivity payment due to workers for the years 2015 and 2016, (and the) compensation for workers who have worked and did not receive their correct severance pay, coupled with their refund from the Pension Scheme,” were a few of the matters raised in the letter written to King on August 14.“King is claiming that he hasn’t got the letters,” Duncan said.Nevertheless, the workers’ representative vowed that he is committed to stand by the employees until they receive what is owed to them.“If this thing continues, the day care is going to be closed. We will close the markets, and we are going to ask the persons whom we represent that control the kokers to either shut it or keep it opened,” the Union’s Secretary threatened.Questioned if he is concerned about the negative effects these actions might have, Duncan responded in the negative. “King is not concerned about the negative effects the Council has on the workers. Just look at the building, for instance, and he (Royston King) got anniversary, raising 19 and 20 something million. What are you celebrating? A failure?”He explained that on many occasions workers have visited the NIS and were unable to get any money for glasses or sick leave, since the Council has not been paying the monies over to the relevant agencies although it was reportedly being deducted from the workers’ salaries.Duncan has since vowed to continue daily protests until the workers receive their payments.The Town Clerk subsequently informed that a meeting will be held later in the day to address the issues affecting the workers.last_img read more

Dem Mutual partners with LGC to give back to customers

first_imgIn their heated pursuit to popularise golf in Guyana, the Lusignan Golf Club, in partnership with Demerara Mutual, has streamlined a number of initiatives that will allow more persons to become familiar with the game.Demerara Mutual’s Clarence PerryAs the duo prepare for their annual tournament, which will tee-off tomorrow (October 13) at the Lusignan Golf Course, they have also put other plans into place to attract new fans to the sport. Among these plans is the giveaway of tickets to the annual Guyana Open Cup, which is slated for November 3 and 4.“We’re offering all members of the client base, if they come in to his offices nationwide, they’ll receive a free invitation to the Guyana Open, which will allow them to win one of a half a million dollars in prizes and this is compliments of the Demerara Mutual Group,” Lusignan Golf Club President Aleem Hussain stated.After the announcement of the free offer, Demerara Mutual Senior Marketing Manager Clarence Perry disclosed that the company would be hosting a health fair in its Avenue of the Republic and Robb Street compound, at which clients can uplift their tickets to the Guyana Open. These offers, Perry noted, fuel his hope that golf can continue to grow in Guyana.“We do hope that we can see not only as a result of ourselves, but other corporate groups participating, so golf will grow from strength to strength. You know in Guyana, it’s traditionally cricket and football, but with continued exposure and sponsorship of these events, hopefully, we can have more persons participating in golf in the future.”Going a step further, Hussain has extended an invitation to the staff and clients of the insurance company, should they want to learn the game.“Lusignan Golf Club is pleased to offer their staff and clients free lessons to anyone who is willing to learn this game.

Pitch invading squirrel goes nuts at City’s Etihad Stadium

first_img0Shares0000A squirrel was on the pitch at the Etihad Stadium prior to Manchester City’s game with Wolves. Photo/Daily MailLONDON, United Kingdom, Oct 25 – Football fans enjoyed a spot of pre-match entertainment last night – courtesy of a furry pitch invader.Shortly before kick-off, groundsmen spotted a grey squirrel by the corner flag at Manchester City’s Etihad Stadium. To the cheers of fans, they attempted to shoo it away with their forks.They then spent eight minutes chasing the animal around the pitch as it weaved its way past all their challenges.Eventually one man grabbed hold of it – only to let it slip through his fingers again when it nipped his hand.He yelped out in pain as the squirrel leapt back on to the turf and headed down the wing.Staff eventually used rakes and shovels to shepherd it away from the pitch before the cup game against Wolves.Exhausted, the plucky rodent was eventually scooped up by one of the groundsmen wearing thick gloves who carried it away to safety.-By Daily Mail-0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Maradona drama is a problem for Argentina and Messi

first_img0Shares0000Diego Maradona became increasingly agitated during Argentina’s 2-1 win over Nigeria that saved their World Cup © AFP / Giuseppe CACACESAINT PETERSBURG, Russian Federation, Jun 27 – When Lionel Messi ran to the corner and sank to his knees, the enduring image of Argentina scrambling into the World Cup’s last 16 was set.Their number 10, in the blue and white stripes, his head tilted and fingers vertical, about to be swamped moments later by adoring team-mates. But all those cameras not positioned in Messi’s corner of the Saint Petersburg Stadium quickly turned their gaze upwards and slightly to the right.Diego Maradona, with his arms grappling his own chest, was grimacing towards the sky, a crazed look in his eyes of ecstasy, relief and delirium.This was the duopoly of Argentina’s 2-1 win over Nigeria on Tuesday.Not Messi and Marcos Rojo, the scorer of the winning goal in the 86th minute, nor even Messi and Jorge Sampaoli, the team’s estranged coach.But Messi and Maradona. On the pitch, off the pitch, present and past. One trying to win the trophy that has eluded him in an otherwise extraordinary career, the other watching on, having had his own story defined by it.– Inspiration or distraction? –There is no telling how the hysteria that surrounds Maradona really affects the team, whether his increasingly deranged presence is a force for inspiration, sympathy or discomfort.But as Argentina rallied to escape Group D, one of the game’s most magical players, perhaps its greatest ever icon, was in the stands, only prevented from toppling over by two of his entourage next to him.As Lionel Messi celebrated his goal, the TV cameras turned towards Maradona in the stands © AFP / Kirill KUDRYAVTSEVHe sat slumped in his seat, seemingly dozing off, and then later upright, frazzled with nerves, his hands clawing his face.When Rojo’s volley hit the net, the performance was completed by two raised middle fingers and a shouted obscene insult, the intended target apparently anyone that would look.Broadcasters are expected to treat Maradona with more sensitivity during Saturday’s quarter-final against France. Accompanying every meaningful action with a shot of the 57-year-old perhaps made for compelling viewing, but his health cannot be taken lightly.After the match, video emerged of him being helped into the dining area of his VIP box, seemingly unwell. Photos showed medical staff attending to him, with one appearing to take his pulse.On Wednesday, Maradona wrote on Instagram: “I want to tell everyone that I am fine, that I am not and was not hospitalised.”Claudio Tapia, the president of the Argentinian FA, may be wondering though if Maradona’s histrionics are detrimental to the team, and Messi, as well as himself.– Constant comparisons –Whenever the World Cup comes around, Messi is encircled by Maradona’s shadow.Lionel Messi and Diego Maradona are intertwined in Argentina’s football legend © AFP / Giuseppe CACACEThirty-two years after one Argentinian striker hoisted the trophy, another is expected to do the same.“We say that if Messi does not win the World Cup, he will not be superior to Maradona,” Tapia said, shortly after the Albiceleste arrived in Russia.“But I believe that these are comparisons that should be left out.”When Maradona took aim at Sergio Ramos last week, calling him inferior to Atletico Madrid’s Diego Godin, the Spain defender retaliated with an insult he clearly felt would cut deep.“In Argentina they know Maradona is light years away from the best Argentine player in history which, for me, is Lionel Messi,” Ramos said.Between Messi and Maradona themselves, there has been nothing but reverence.Messi has described Maradona as his “inspiration” while only this week Maradona directed a personal message to Messi, saying: “Nothing is your fault. I love you and I respect you as always.”But for the quiet, unassuming genius of Messi, this current circus of Maradona must feel more encroaching than ever, more even than when Maradona was Argentina’s coach in 2010.Then they were both on the same team, each on the inside, but now Maradona is the former favourite looking in.“The Argentines’ stereotype of Argentinian is a discreet person, who does not talk too much, and that’s the big difference with Maradona. He likes to grab attention,” said Alexandre Juillard, author of ‘Insubmersible Messi’.“In Argentina they have an expression, ‘Pecho Frio’, which means when you need to be hot, you have to be cold, and that’s Maradona’s problem.”Argentina’s win over Nigeria may only, in the end, prolong their stay at the World Cup by a matter of days. But for as long as they are here, Maradona’s problem is Messi’s problem too.0Shares0000(Visited 4 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Napoli leave Liverpool with Champions League work to do

first_imgDries Mertens threatened to inflict Liverpool’s first home defeat in the Champions or Premier League since April 2017 with a sweetly struck opener midway through the first half.Dejan Lovren’s header protected that proud unbeaten run, but after a host of late winners in the Premier League this season there was no such joy for the hosts this time round.“Our way was always the hard one,” said Klopp.“We have to go to Salzburg. If we had done it (qualified) tonight we would’ve tried to win there and we will do the same now.”Napoli remain a point behind Liverpool, but are well-placed to reach the knockout stages as they host winless Genk in two weeks’ time.“It’s not easy to get a draw here. We suffered under pressure and began to defend too deep, but there’s no other way to emerge alive from Anfield,” said Napoli coach Carlo Ancelotti.The Italians had travelled to Merseyside in disarray with Ancelotti seemingly on the brink of being sacked after a slump in Serie A.President Aurelio De Laurentiis has also threatened to sell the entire squad and take legal action against the players after they refused his orders to be confined to a week-long training camp earlier this month.However, the Italians are the only side to have beaten the European champions this season and proved a thorn in Liverpool’s side again.“This is a healthy club within the locker room and with the desire of everyone to emerge from this difficult moment,” added Ancelotti.“I spoke to the president, he was very happy with everyone and congratulated us all on the performance.”Liverpool midfielder Fabinho (right) suffered a worrying ankle injury © AFP / Oli SCARFFLiverpool were unsettled by the early loss of Fabinho to an ankle injury and Klopp is worried that the Brazilian could be sidelined for some time.“The biggest thing tonight is the Fabinho injury,” added Klopp. “That’s massive, it’s still early and we hope it is not too serious but it is pretty painful.”The home side were still regrouping when the visitors opened the scoring on 21 minutes.Mertens leaned into Virgil van Dijk as the Dutchman headed clear and was left on the ground holding his side.Napoli played on and when the ball was played forward again Mertens was unmarked to run through before beating Alisson Becker from a narrow angle.After a VAR review for a potential foul and offside, the goal was allowed to stand and there were a few more nervy moments for the home fans before Van Dijk got back to his feet and was able to continue.Klopp grew increasingly frustrated on the touchline as Liverpool failed to find their rhythm before the break.However, a talking to from the German inspired a second half turnaround.Kalidou Koulibaly bailed out his goalkeeper with a clearance off the line from Roberto Firmino after Alex Meret dropped a simple cross into the box.It seemed a matter of time before the equaliser arrived, but when it did it came from an unlikely source as Lovren rose above Mertens to power home James Milner’s corner.Again a VAR check was needed as Mertens this time claimed to be the victim of a push, but the goal stood to leave both sides needing a point to progress on matchday six.0Shares0000(Visited 21 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Dejan Lovren (left) rises highest to head home Liverpool’s equaliser against Napoli © AFP / Oli SCARFFLIVERPOOL, United Kingdom, Nov 28 – Liverpool are used to making life difficult for themselves, admitted Jurgen Klopp as a 1-1 draw with Napoli leaves the European champions with work to do to reach the Champions League last 16.Klopp’s men must avoid defeat away to Salzburg on December 10 to secure their passage into the knockout stages.last_img read more

Dog days of Justin may come to an end

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGift Box shows no rust in San Antonio Stakes win at Santa Anita Last week, a student came home with excrement on his clothes, prompting school officials to revisit the issue after years of complaints. The school board is expected to take it up in the coming weeks. If the district moves forward with the unusual step of closing the campus, Justin would be the city’s first elementary campus to be closed when school is not in session. “We’re trying to find a solution that will work,” said Lowell Schultze, associate superintendent of business and facilities. “We will take a look at it. We like to keep our campuses open for the neighborhood.” At least one school board member is not fond of the decision to block access to the school. “These are our community schools, owned by the taxpayers,” Carla Kurachi said. “It’s such a shame.” SIMI VALLEY – School officials are making a stink over a group of neighbors who take their dogs to a local elementary school and don’t clean up after them. Every afternoon, nearby residents meet at Justin Elementary School, where they unleash their pooches to play on the grass, and the pooches, in turn, unleash their waste. Some people have not been picking up after their pets and because of that, the district is considering closing the 423-student campus during nonschool hours. “We can’t keep up and clean it every single morning. It’s not possible,” Principal Marian Weaver said. “We’d like our neighbors to be neighborly by cleaning up after their dogs. That’s fair.” School board member Janice DiFatta said children deserve a clean and healthy environment in which to play – not one filled with feces. “It’s a school,” she said. “We can’t allow people to let their dogs run free and think they can leave the droppings for the district to pick up.” Attempts have been made to get owners to clean up after their pets. The district went as far as installing stations with bags, and letters have been sent to the community urging them to keep the school clean, officials said. Patti Olson, who lives a block away, said neighbors have been meeting at Justin for more than a decade with their dogs, and that it’s the closest thing they have to a dog park. During the summer, as many as 22 dogs are on site at once. On average, up to 10 pooches get together. “There’s always people in the world that don’t do the right thing,” said Olson, who owns a Chihuahua and a golden retriever mix. “They are ruining it for the rest of us.” Angie Valencia-Martinez, (805) 583-7604 angie.valencia@dailynews.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Fish farm aims to reverse fall in profits

first_imgDespite a major fall in profits for the second quarter of this year at Marine Harvest Ireland, a spokesman for the company said that by year end they expect to reverse that trend.Jan Feenstra, Managing Director at Marine Harvest was responding to reports at the weekend that profits at the company’s Irish division fell in the second quarter of 2016 to €1.3m from €6.2m a year earlier.Mr. Feenstra said he expects that profits at the fish farm operation will be restored by the end of the year and says the financial report for one quarter of the year is taking their financial status and projections ‘out of context’. Marine Harvest based on the Fanad Peninsula has 300 employees and historically this is its highest number ever in Ireland.Referring to the bad weather and biological conditions experienced in the recent past, Mr. Feenstra told the Tirconail Tribune that these factors continued to impact on its operations here.“The other major factor,” he said, “ are the long delays in the granting of marine licenses to the company to allow us expand our operations and this situation has been ongoing for many years.”In the company’s Ireland division, costs were up 12% from “very challenging weather conditions, hampered feeding and biological challenges,” said their latest financial statement. As a result, operational earning for Ireland before interest and tax fell to €1.3 million, compared to €6.2 million in Q2 of 2015.However Mr. Feenstra said that while that might sound serious, the period concerned is their quietest of the year and they still hope to be on budget targets by the end of 2016.He said they are facing into the busiest four months of the year leading up to Christmas when their smoked salmon sales come in the equation and is a main driver of business and profitability. This, he said is the period that creates 60% of their turnover and he is confident that the losses for quarter three will be reversed before year end.Saying that bad weather which cut their feeding days drastically last year and led to the shutdown of operations is the main factor in the current financial predictions along with the lack of enough sites at sea to promote their business and grow profits.Marine Harvest reported revenues of €832 million, up 8.47% year on year. Despite these bumper results, Alf-Helge Aarskog, CEO, expressed concern on the company’s costs. “Despite all time high salmon prices, farming costs have become unacceptably high and the cost trend is not satisfactory,” he said, in a statement on the results.“Compared to the second quarter of 2015, costs are up in all regions. Marine Harvest continues to have the utmost focus on cost reduction throughout the organisation and supports new methods and innovative solutions to combat the cost escalation,” said Aarskog.Estimated volumes for the second half of 2016 have been reduced as a result of biological issues, the company said.Marine Harvest has fish farms in Norway, Scotland, Ireland, Canada, Chile and the Faroe Islands.Internationally Marine Harvest’s group operational revenue jumped to €832.1m in the second quarter, from €767.3m in the second quarter of 2015. Its operational earnings before interest and tax was €149m in the second quarter this year. And while Marine Harvest said that salmon prices have risen to an unprecedented level, its business in Ireland has lagged that in other regions.Salmon prices rose 55% in Europe and by 43% in the Americas in the period.“The effects of very challenging weather conditions, hampered feeding and biological challenges from the first quarter continue to impact costs,” said Marine Harvest of its Irish operations.Originally known as Fanad Fisheries, Marine Harvest Ireland operates in five counties on the west coast of, from Donegal to Cork and Kerry in the southwest of the country.Established since 1979 the company has been operating locally in Mulroy Bay and Lough Swilly and is the largest employer in this part of county Donegal.Fish farm aims to reverse fall in profits was last modified: August 25th, 2016 by StephenShare 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:donegalMarine Harvestprofitslast_img read more
