Judy Ann’s 1st project for 2020 is giving her a ‘stomachache’ “Coach always tells us to think about who our hero is. Actually, he’s the one I look up to, and I look at him as my hero,” said Perez on the heels of Lyceum’s historic 18-0 sweep of the NCAA Season 93 eliminations on Thursday.Buying into Robinson’s system has allowed not only Perez, but the rest of the Pirates to flourish this season leading to an outright Finals berth.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSRedemption is sweet for Ginebra, Scottie ThompsonSPORTSMayweather beats Pacquiao, Canelo for ‘Fighter of the Decade’SPORTSFederer blasts lack of communication on Australian Open smogPlaying inspired through the course of the year, the Pirates have awed the crowd as they established themselves as one of the best collegiate teams in the country — all while wearing smiles on their faces.For Perez, Lyceum will not be where it is right now if not for its head coach, who have always defrayed the credit to his players. “He gets mad at me, but he’s really the one I see as my hero. He gives me so much trust. When I was struggling, he was always there helping me and pushing me on what to do. He never stops motivating me,” the energetic forward said.This dynamic between the player and the coach has also bore fruits for the 23-year-old, as he emerged as a clear frontrunner for this season’s MVP award.But winning the plum is the least of Perez’ concerns.“All we’re thinking of right now is inspiring people, especially the ones who watch us. Now, we have the chance to show our talents and we’d like nothing more but to inspire everyone who sees us,” he said.ADVERTISEMENT Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Coco’s house rules on ‘Probinsyano’ set It’s too early to present Duterte’s ‘legacy’ – Lacson View comments Jake says relationship with Shaina ‘goes beyond physical attraction’ Margot Robbie talks about filming ‘Bombshell’s’ disturbing sexual harassment scene Jo Koy: My brain always wants to think funny Jake says relationship with Shaina ‘goes beyond physical attraction’ MOST READ OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ‘a duplicitous move’ – Lacson For the complete collegiate sports coverage including scores, schedules and stories, visit Inquirer Varsity.

Mr. Osunlalu,representative of ECOWAS Ambassador to Liberia. — Assures Representative of ECOWAS Ambassador to LiberiaA representative of the Ambassador of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) to Liberia on Wednesday, May 15, 2019, assured national security personnel in Monrovia of organization’s preparedness to go after anyone who would make an attempt to destabilize the country’s peace.Ambassador Lola Osunlalu’s warning came barley a day after the scheduled dialogue between President George Weah and organizers of the planned June 7 “peaceful protest” ended in a situation of misaligned expectations.Although Amb. Osunlalu did not identify any group as the would-be troublemakers, he assured the officers that ECOWAS is prepared to come after anyone that would want to destabilize Liberia’s peace.He gave the assurance when he proxied for the Ambassador Babatunde Olanrewaju Ajisomo at the 25th anniversary of the Liberia National Law Enforcement Association (LINLEA), held at the Monrovia Christian Fellowship Church in Monrovia.Osunlalu also cautioned the law enforcement officers not to engage in any activity that would tend to undermine the peace Liberia is enjoying. “Countries in the sub-region are not willing to accept any more refugees,” he noted, “so do not join anything that will take Liberia back to war.”He then called on them to promptly inform ECOWAS about anyone wanting to participate any act that could undermine the country’ hard earned peace.“Do not listen to them, but please let us know of anyone that would wants to use you to destabilize your own country’s peace and security. Let us know their plan. Do not join them, but do expose their plan to us,” Osunlalu said.Also, the president of LINLEA, Cecil B. Griffiths reminded his audience that those political leaders and the managers of the country’s resources need to promote peace, social justice, human rights and accountability.Griffiths, himself a former police officer, said that impunity undermines democracy to the extent that the economy will continue to decline if the government does not take serious actions to combat corruption.“And you can imagine warlords, ex-rebel generals demanding a seating lawmaker to report to them. This is what impunity does,” Griffith told the cheering officers.LINLEA is a nonpartisan and nonprofit organization established in March 1994 to represent the interests of Liberian law enforcement personnel, both current and retired officers from immigration, fire service and other related security personnel and private security guards to provide a national platform for the exchange of information, analysis and recommendations on the security sector governance.Through its core program, LINLEA promotes and enhances professionalism in Liberia’s security sector, monitors compliance with accepted standards related to professional conduct and respect for human rights, advocates for improved working environments for security sector and protects the rights of Liberian enforcement officers.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
Liverpool desperately need another striker otherwise they will be in trouble this season, according to talkSPORT’s Merseyside correspondent Graham Beecroft.The Reds eked out a 2-1 victory over Southampton on the opening day of the Premier League season, but the feeling remains they have not adequately replaced Luis Suarez yet.The Uruguayan joined Barcelona in a £75million move earlier this summer and while many agree he is impossible to fully replace, Liverpool have only brought in two strikers this summer – veteran Rickie Lambert and Divock Origi, who is spending this season back on loan at Lille. Brendan Rodgers said after the Saints win he was still looking to strengthen his squad and Beecroft believes up front must be a priority.“Liverpool do need another striker. Brendan Rodgers is saying ‘well we’ll have a look but if we don’t get another striker in this window, then there’s no panic’. Believe you me, Liverpool need a striker before the window shuts otherwise they will be in trouble as far as the season is concerned,” he told Extra Time.“It only needs an injury to Daniel Sturridge and/or Rickie Lambert and they will be in trouble, there is no question about it.“They need quality in there. I think they’ve got the money to buy quality, it’s just a question of whether they can persuade their targets to come and sign for Liverpool Football Club but it is vital, and I repeat vital, that Liverpool do make that signing before the transfer window closes.”Liverpool saw a transfer for QPR striker Loic Remy fall through earlier in the window after a failed medical, while in recent days they have been linked with a shock move for former Chelsea striker Samuel Eto’o and Reds legend Steve Nicol has encouraged the club to move for Swansea forward Wilfried Bony.

Exclusive: A CRAZED gang of notorious burglars tried to knock down a Garda during a crime spree across County Donegal.The officer was one of a number of dedicated Gardaí involved in a sustained late night operation over several hours to catch the gang.Details of the operation can be revealed for the first time today by Donegal Daily. It follows a burglary late on Thursday night near Glen as a gang in a northern-registered black hatchback.This vehicle was the subject of a community alert on Donegal Daily yesterday. The start of the registration is XIW.Although the car is a County Derry registration, the gang resides here in Donegal and is suspected of involvement in dozens of raids on homes and business premises over the past few months.A lone Garda managed to locate the latest car being used by the gang but as he approached on foot the driver – who had been hidden from view – suddenly accelerated towards him. The officer managed to get out of the way of the oncoming car and raise the alarm with colleagues.“He could have been killed,” said one source.What followed was a three hour search across north Donegal, involving high speed chases across a wide area, starting in Glen and going through Kilmacrennan and Churchill areas.The vehicle disappeared. At one stage Gardaí thought the gang may have crashed into a field.If you know anything about this gang, or know the whereabouts of the car which was used, then call Gardaí immediately. You can call the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111 or any Garda station.If you see suspicious activity, call 999.REVEALED: BURGLARS TRY TO RAM GARDA DURING CRIME SPREE was last modified: March 15th, 2014 by John2Share 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:burglarsCarrigartglenTrentnagh
