Jury 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.

Google is bringing Web apps one step closer to having full desktop functionality. Today, it announced new functionality that allows apps from the Chrome Web Store to run in the background, even when all Chrome windows have been closed but the user hasn’t actually exited the browser. Why would you want to do this? A couple of reasons. There’s an example app available here (you’ll need Chrome 10).To close the background apps, users only have to exit Chrome. Users will also be able to check which background apps and extensions are running through the Chrome icon in the system tray in Windows and Linux or the dock on OSX.To address security concerns, Google has made the functionality available only to Chrome Web Store apps and extensions. Regular websites won’t be able to access this functionality. Developers will also have to declare the background capability in their apps.At the moment this seems only minimally useful, but it does give more purpose to the creation of Chrome Web Store apps, which have been criticized as over-glorified bookmarks.
