Hope floats: Future bright for PH ‘3’ as Tokyo beckons

first_imgJury of 7 men, 5 women selected for Weinstein rape trial “There is promise; there is hope,” coach Ronnie Magsanoc told the Inquirer. “There is actual proof that these four players can compete together and make each other better and stay with the best teams in the world.”The squad of Stanley Pringle, Christian Standhardinger, Roger Pogoy and Troy Rosario bested sixth-ranked Brazil (15-7) and third seed Russia (19-14) in pool play, where it also bowed to more experienced Canada and Mongolia.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“Imagine what can happen if we have a program in place,” said Magsanoc. “Our first real scrimmage was the game against Brazil. The first learning curve was against Mongolia. And again another lesson against Canada, before we managed to regroup and beat Russia.”Magsanoc said the building blocks have already been established for a push for that Tokyo Olympics spot. Volcano watch: Island fissures steaming, lake water receding The Philippines’ last taste of basketball action in the Olympics came in 1972 in Munich, Germany, where the men’s team finished 13th out of 16 teams.“That is the challenge that really gave us the excitement to be a part of this team because the Gilas program is really geared towards landing a spot in the Olympics and this might be another avenue where we can make the Olympics,” said Magsanoc.Rosario pushed for the creation of a pool for the 3×3 event much like the Gilas program: “There’s a pool for Gilas for Fiba 5-on-5 and I think we might need the same with 3×3.”Standhardinger would love nothing more than to keep the squad.“Of course we’ll try to do our all but I hope that all of the organizations involved will give us the opportunity to stick together and I think we showed great promise,” he said. “You saw what this guy (Pogoy] did with the two-pointers. Amazing. He’s made for this physicality, he’s made for 3×3, Troy is made for 3×3 and nobody can stop Stanley. So I think we have a great team.”ADVERTISEMENT Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

Several Persons to Survive Ebola, Ugandan Doctor Discloses

first_imgA Ugandan doctor is tirelessly working to ensure that several of those being afflicted by the deadly Ebola virus disease (ECD) across the country survive despite the challenges. In the coming weeks, according to Dr. Atai Omoruto, more persons who became afflicted by the Ebola will walk out of the various treatment centers alive. “This is because doctors attending to them have now dedicated more efforts since they mustered renewed courage and momentum to fearlessly battle the disease.”Dr. Omoruto works in Liberia as a WHO consultant on Ebola Case Management. She is currently assigned at the refurbished Island Clinic in Monrovia, where she made the statement Tuesday.  She spoke yesterday at the daily Ebola news briefing held at the Ministry of Information.Saving the lives of every Ebola patient who comes into the treatment units remains her top priority, she declared.Dr. Omoruto: “Reopening of the Island Clinic facility is a major boost to Liberia’s Ebola fight. Nevertheless, the need for the construction of additional treatment facilities across the country to accommodate incoming patients cannot be emphasized.”According to her, early treatment is important for a patient to survive the Ebola disease.Based on that observation, she called on the government to intensify its sensitization and awareness messages in the various communities throughout the country so that those afflicted by the EVD will come in for early treatment upon suspecting the virus.She also observed that living with the virus for a protracted period outside of treatment facilities was largely responsible for most of the deaths recorded so far.“Many people like to wait until they are acutely ill before they are taken to treatment centers. This is bad, but again, let the response unit exert further efforts to become proactive.”“If you walk early into a treatment center upon noticing the virus, you will walk out healthy and safe.  But when you come in lying on stretchers, there is a very limited possibility to survive the virus,” she warned.Meanwhile, Dr. Omoruto has disclosed that Liberia is facing “a very dangerous strain” of the EVD since the disease was discovered several years ago. This trend of progression, she believes, is due to the disease fastness in replication.She noted that supportive treatment has proven effective against the virus, thereby motivating doctors to respond swiftly by providing intensive supportive care to patients which account for their recovery.In a related development, WHO Technical Assistant to the Bomi County Health Team, Dr. Richard Louise, has appealed to the international community and friendly nations for more medical support to Liberia’s fight against the Ebola virus.Dr. Louise said in the absence of medical support and the cooperation from the international community, Liberian Government’s effort to contain the Ebola disease would be elusive.Dr. Louise made the appeal over the weekend in Tubmanburg, Bomi County when Plan International’s Program Unit in the county presented preventive materials valued over US$12,000 to the Bomi County Health Team.According to him, friendly nations and international organizations, including the European Union, African Union, ECOWAS and the United Nations, should join forces with the Government of Liberia to eradicate the EVD that is already claiming lives daily in the country.Also speaking during the presentation ceremony, the president of the Bomi County Rural Women, Mary Varney, expressed concern about the continuous denial of the existence of the Ebola virus by some people in the county.Madam Varney said given the reports from the county health team about infected, suspected and confirmed cases and deaths from Ebola, it is clear that the disease is real and is in the county.She urged the people of the county and its environs to always listen to the health workers and observe the preventive measures that have been outlined to save lives. Meanwhile, the government has warned landlords and house owners against evicting health workers currently working at Ebola Treatment Units (ETUs) from their buildings.The government warning comes in the wake of reports that that landlords and house owners are giving notices to tenants who are health workers, especially those  assigned at ETUs, to leave their premises for fear that they will contaminate other tenants and their family members.The Government’s warning was contained in a statement released recently through Deputy Information Minister, Isaac Jackson.Min. Jackson noted that the government will not take kindly such act as it has the propensity to promote the spread of the virus.  He called on landlords and house owners involved in this practice to desist immediately from kind of behavior.He then announced that government would not hesitate to take strong action against any landlord caught in such an act “because it contravenes Chapter 13 and 14.6 of the Public Health Law of Liberia.”According to Chapter 14.6 of the Public Health Law, an attempt on the part of any citizen to willfully promote the spread of a disease to the detriment of others, such person will be prosecuted, and when found guilty, will be sentenced for up to 30 days, and or subsequently pay a fine of US$200.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

I can’t wait to get back onto the pitch – Joseph Nsubuga

first_img Tags: AFCON 2019DR CongoEgyptJoseph NsubugaSC VillatopUganda Craneszimbabwe Nsubuga has been out of action for the past one year (PHOTOS/AGENCIES).Tendon injuries can be complicated when it comes to footballers and can easily end one’s playing career.For SC Villa and Uganda Cranes right-back, Joseph Nsubuga, the injury has kept him out for close to a year.Nsubuga suffered the career threatening injury last July (2018) during a training session with his Jogoo side at Villa Park, the club’s training base.Despite making consistent attempts to return last season, the roving right-back failed to get onto the pitch.With two weeks to the end of the 2018/19 SUPL season, Nsubuga was cleared to start training but he too knew it would take a while before he finally played in a proper football game.“It has been a frustrating last year for me, narrates Nsubuga.“Watching your teammates play while knowing you cannot help them is the worst possible situation for any footballer but it is all part of the game.“I was out for long spells and every day that passed, prayed i would get back to the pitch and help my team.SC Villa was embroiled in the relegation battle last season, spending the majority of the campaign close to the drop zone.They however survived the drop on Match-Day 29, in the same week Nsubuga had started training.Villa survived relegation on Match-Day 29.“I was cleared to train with just two weeks to the end of the season but i knew it was too late to play in the 2018/19 season.“After we avoided relegation, i felt relief as i desperately wanted my team to stay up because we are the biggest side in the country.After starting out with light training, Nsubuga is currently taking part in full sessions at Villa park and hopes to get back to 100%.“God has been on my side and helped me overcome this injury. It has not been easy but i have somehow done it.“My only focus now is getting myself fit for the upcoming season so that i can help my team.Before injury, Nsubuga was prominent in the Uganda Cranes set-up, making several appearances for the team.He was widely considered by many as the long-term solution to Uganda Cranes’ right-back issues.He joined SC Villa from Matuga based side, Bright Stars in 2016 and has consistently made the right-back position his own.Asked about Uganda’s chances at the 2019 AFCON in Egypt, he had this to say;“At first i felt our best chance for three points was against Zimbabwe but after watching them against Egypt on Friday night, i am not sure anymore.“All in all, i trust the coaching stuff and players and i am sure they will do all they can to make it out of the group and reach the knock-out stages.The Uganda Cranes will be in action of Saturday afternoon in their opening AFCON game against DR Congo.Comments last_img read more
