A copy of the warrant issued by Judge Jennifer Chavez-Marcos of Regional Trial Court Branch 51 in Carmen, Bohol showed that Emmylou Cañesares is one of the 14 leaders of the NPA’s Komiteng Rehiyonal- Negros/Cebu/Bohol/Siquijor accused of murder.The court did not set bail for Cañesares for the criminal case. Government security forces seized from the suspects a .45-caliber pistol, .38-caliber revolver loaded with five rounds of ammunition, four MK2 fragmentation hand grenades, P119,354 cash, and other several other items such as mobile phones. Cañares was arrested with George Buga-ay, 42, a former squad leader and finance logistics officer of the Regional Strike Forces of the Kilusang Rehiyon-Negros (KR-N), now assigned at the KR-N Regional Communication (RCOM), along with Relyn Morino, 22, and Raffy Patajo, 21. BACOLOD City – One of the four officials of the Communist Party of the Philippines-New People’s Army (CPP-NPA) arrested in Kabankalan City, Negros Occidental recently has a pending arrest warrant for murder. “The warrant has yet to be served because her current arrest was due to different circumstances. This disproves the NPA’s claim that she is not an insurgent,” he added. The 38-year-old Cañesares, who was identified by the Philippine Army’s (PA) 15th Infantry Battalion as “Emmylo Cañares,” was arrested with three other suspected rebels in Barangay Magballo on July 10. The four suspects, who are detained at the Kabankalan City Police Station, have been tagged by the police as CPP-NPA terrorist (CNT) high-value individuals.Both Cañares and Morino have been charged for violation of Republic Act 10591, or the Comprehensive Firearms and Ammunition Regulation Act and RA 9516, or the Illegal Possession of Explosives while Buga-ay for RA 10591 and Patajo for RA 9516. (With a report from PNA/PN) Major Cenon Pancito III, chief of the PA’s 3rd Infantry Division’s Public Affairs Office, said on Wednesday the CPP-NPA should get a good lawyer to represent the four considering that one of them is facing a murder case.last_img read more

Potters frustrate City

first_imgFormer Manchester City boss Mark Hughes frustrated his old club as his confident Stoke side held them to a goalless draw at the Britannia Stadium. City, who made six changes ahead of the start of their Champions League campaign next week, again failed to find their spark in what has become an unconvincing sequence under their new manager Manuel Pellegrini. Pellegrini opted to change his strike pairing and hand a debut to Stevan Jovetic and a first start to Alvaro Negredo, with Sergio Aguero and Edin Dzeko making way. Javi Garcia again failed to impress in central defence after surprisingly replacing Joleon Lescott while new pair Jesus Navas and Fernandinho were also among the substitutes. James Milner, Jack Rodwell and Samir Nasri came in to little effect. Yet the visitors had the first sight of goal when Aleksandar Kolarov, scorer of a stunner for Serbia against Wales in midweek, shot wide. Nasri was also presented with a chance after Yaya Toure robbed Steven Nzonzi but the Frenchman shot tamely at Asmir Begovic. City looked to build patiently but they lacked fluidity and Stoke seemed more at ease with the new style Hughes is trying to implement. The Potters were passing the ball around far more than their fans are accustomed to – and they even sang about it at one point – and gave City plenty to think about. Yet their first chance came after a clearance from Toure went only as far as Marc Wilson and the midfielder shot wide from distance. Press Association The Potters were unable to secure a third successive Barclays Premier League win but produced another encouraging performance as they continue to develop under new manager Hughes. Stoke forward Jonathan Walters spurned one of the best chances of the game when he headed wide from a superb Charlie Adam cross in the first half. City goalkeeper Joe Hart also had to be alert to prevent a Matija Nastasic own goal. Walters should have scored when he glanced his header wide after the brilliant Adam picked him out unmarked in front of goal from the right. Kenwyne Jones tested Hart when he seized on Nasri’s failure to cut out a long ball but the under-pressure England goalkeeper stood up well to block. Nzonzi might also have done better when a clearance rebounded off Rodwell and into his path. The former Blackburn man seemed to have a clear run at goal but he checked back to pass and the counter-attack petered out. Adam then connected with a powerful shot but it flew straight at Hart. Throughout their spell on the back foot City had created little aside from a chance for Jovetic, who shot at Begovic when he might have looked to release Negredo. They had another opportunity before the break after Robert Huth fouled Jovetic 30 yards put but Kolarov curled his free-kick over. Stoke carried their momentum into the second half with Walters narrowly failing to turn in a cross from Geoff Cameron. Jovetic volleyed over as City tried to respond but Stoke continued to dictate the game and went close again when Jones rose above Nastasic to head narrowly over from another fine Adam cross. Adam connected cleanly with another shot from long range but Hart saved comfortably to his right. A mistake by Garcia, looking uncomfortable at the back, caused more alarm in the City box but Pablo Zabaleta cleared the danger. Pellegrini attempted to change things by withdrawing the frustrated Jovetic, whose final act was to head wide from a Nasri free-kick, and sending on Aguero. However it seemed Stoke were more lifted by the introduction of their substitutes Stephen Ireland, the former Manchester City midfielder, and Marko Arnautovic for debuts. Arnautovic was straight into the action and caused mayhem as his cross from the left was diverted towards his own goal by Nastasic. Fortunately for the defender Hart was alert and produced a fine reaction save. Peter Crouch came on after Stoke lost Jones to injury after there was further concern when Huth appeared to be knocked out after a collision with Negredo, but he was able to resume after treatment. City’s frustrations were summed up when Negredo miskicked in front of goal in the last minute and Arnautovic might have snatched victory when he shot over in injury time. last_img read more

Syracuse drops regular-season finale despite outshooting Boston College 16-1 in 2nd half

first_img Published on October 30, 2015 at 10:15 pm Contact Jon: jrmettus@syr.edu | @jmettus Despite a late push and outshooting Boston College 16-1 in the second half, No. 12 Syracuse (10-5-2, 3-4-1 Atlantic Coast) lost to the Eagles (9-6-1, 4-4-0), 2-1, in its final game of the regular season in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts.The Orange will get the No. 7 seed in the ACC tournament and host either North Carolina State or Louisville in the first round at 7 p.m. on Wednesday. The official seeding will be released following the Pittsburgh at Notre Dame game on Saturday slated for a 2 p.m. start.“We weren’t our best tonight, first half,” head coach Ian McIntyre said. “We were just a little bit off pace and we were punished for a couple of mistakes. … We had a magnificent response we just ran out of time.”Orange starting midfielders Juuso Pasanen and Korab Syla returned to the lineup after sitting out of SU’s win over North Carolina State on Oct. 23 and exiting the previous game early because of injury.Pasanen finished with one shot in 89 minutes of action. Syla did not record any stats in his 74 minutes.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“We tried to get them involved and I thought they both did very well,” McIntyre said.In the first half, Syracuse only put up one shot, which didn’t go on goal. Meanwhile, Boston College scored at the 24- and 38-minute marks.Trevor Davock scored first off a through ball, then Simon Enstrom took advantage of a misplayed ball by SU goalie Hendrik Hilpert, scoring on an empty net from 30 yards out.“It was a choppy game,” McIntyre said. “Boston College did a good job to kind of frustrate us. I thought that they were the better team.”The Orange came out firing in the second half, but only five of its 16 shots in the half went on goal. Defender Kamal Miller made it a one-goal game with just over five minutes left, but SU couldn’t net the equalizer.“Unfortunately that first goal, if we score it five minutes earlier I think we get back in the game,” McIntyre said. “… We created a lot of chances, put some very good crosses into the box. Their goalkeeper pulled off a couple good saves and we didn’t hit the target on a couple of them we probably should have.“Hopefully on another day we find a way to get that goal.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Purple & Bold: Should the Lakers be worried?

first_imgEditor’s note: This is the Wednesday Oct. 23 edition of the Purple & Gold newsletter after Game 1. To receive the newsletter free in your inbox all season, sign up here.LeBron James does many things well, particularly on the basketball court. But within the locker room, he rarely hides his moods.After a season-opening loss to the Clippers, annoyance seeped through as James spoke with reporters. He disagreed that the Lakers’ offense, which had just 20 assists after Frank Vogel had hoped for 25, had gotten “stagnant.” He disagreed with the idea that facing the Clippers had been “a test.” He pointedly disagreed with the premise of a question that mentioned “defensive issues,” even though the Clippers had scored 40 points in one quarter against an overmatched Lakers defense.“There are issues?” James snipped. “You don’t have issues after one game.” There’s a sense here that the Lakers have more arrows in their quiver. Jared Dudley, who played as poorly as anyone given that the Clippers outscored the Lakers by 20 when he was on the floor, said he thought the team could have reached deeper into its schematic bag once their opponents disrupted their initial actions.“I think that once you watch that film, you’ll see we didn’t really go to our counters,” he said. “If you were a fighter, you kind of go for the heavyweight knockout instead of going to the body, and moving the ball from side to side, and if they don’t have it on one side, setting flares and moving it, and you know, making a nice little adjustment.”JaVale McGee, one of the returning players on the roster, said he felt that with a few days to study, the more veteran-laden group would have a leg up on handling the issues that dogged a younger roster last season.“We don’t even have any film on us,” McGee said. “We don’t even know how we play yet. … We’ll be good.”One game in, a season is hardly set in stone, but the Lakers have set themselves on a certain course. Their ability to correct that course will determine a lot about their record. But as the weeks go on, even if the Lakers want to debate what words mean, the results will speak most clearly of all.DANNY GREEN’S TORONTO THROWBACKFor as much as a week, Danny Green tried to diplomatically suggest that seeing Kawhi Leonard across the court wouldn’t be too jarring.In one sense, he said, he was right. There were moments when him lining up against Leonard felt like one of his old practices with the Spurs or the Raptors. But the atmosphere, however, made it feel like an alien experience, he later admitted.“A little strange doing it live in front of 20,000 fans,” he said. “But it was a lot of fun. … A little weird at first but we had some good battles in practice. Today was a good one. Sure we’ll have a couple in the future with him.”Apparently the change of circumstances with his former teammate did not throw him off too much: Darius Soriano of Forum Blue and Gold pointed out that in the 21 minutes Green shared the floor with Leonard, the Clippers star was just 4 for 12 from the floor.Green did something else he rarely does: His 28 points were the most ever by a Laker making his franchise debut, surpassing Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (who had 27 in his first game as a Laker). He beat out Anthony Davis (25).To illustrate how strange that is, consider that Green scored 20 or more points last year in just four games. By and large, he is a rotation shooter and floor spacer, but on Tuesday night, he happened to hit seven of his nine 3-point attempts.Maybe he was a bit inspired. Hours before the game, Green was able to see some clips of the ring presentation in Toronto, where his former Raptors team was receiving championship rings and hanging its first title banner. While he didn’t watch the game itself, he acknowledged that he had a soft spot for Toronto’s big night even as he prepared.“Social media, see some of it on Instagram, stuff like that, but even after I see some of the guys, the box and their rings – pretty special,” he said. “I watched some of the game before, but I was locked in on this game. I’m on this team now, we have a season here, we have an opener, and we want to start off the right way. Unfortunately, we didn’t but we have a lot of games left to bounce back.”UP NEXTThe Lakers have two days off before a pair of weekend games at home: Utah on Friday night, and Charlotte on Sunday night. Anthony Davis will get his first official Lakers home game on Friday.— Kyle GoonLinking to the finishEditor’s note: Thanks for reading the Purple & Gold newsletter after Game 1.

One game in, the Lakers have some things to fix. Which is not to say the problems are apocalyptic, but problems are problems – whatever James wishes to call them.Frank Vogel was more direct. He admitted the offensive chemistry had “a ways to go.” He acknowledged the defensive strategy broke down as the game went on. The Lakers were, in many ways, outmuscled by the Clippers.“We didn’t follow our plan well enough,” he said. “And when we did, we didn’t do it tough enough.”There’s plenty of qualifiers: It’s one game. The Lakers were missing Kyle Kuzma and Rajon Rondo. Certain elements of the gameplan – Vogel pointed to attacking switches more aggressively with the passing game – will improve with time.There’s something else that this locker room has that last year’s Lakers did not: a buoying sense of experience.last_img read more

Hope to see everyone again as soon as we can.A post shared by Tom Wilson (@tomwilson) on Mar 12, 2020 at 1:26pm PDT View this post on Instagram It was a swift and far-reaching move that impacted not only the players and the teams’ front office staff but arena workers and media members alike. In the afternoon of March 12, NHL commissioner Gary Bettman announced that the league “will pause the 2019‑20 season beginning with tonight’s games” following the NBA’s decision to shut down after a member of the Utah Jazz tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19) the previous night.center_img These are stressful and uncertain times for the world.
