ILOILO City – A total of 147 barangay officials and personnel of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) in Western Visayas have been charged for alleged anomalies in the distribution of the national government’s Social Amelioration Program’s (SAP) emergency cash assistance. The program is headed by the DSWD, in cooperation with the Department of Labor and Employment, Department of Trade and Industry, Department of Agriculture, Department of Finance, Department of Budget and Management, and Department of the Interior and Local Government. In Western Visayas, the subsidy is P6,000 for each beneficiary (per family or household basis). Of the 147 respondents, 25 were barangay captains, one Sangguniang Kabataan chairperson, 42 barangay kagawad, 27 barangay secretaries, seven barangay health workers, five purok leaders, six liaison officers, 30 civilians, and four DSWD personnel. The cash emergency subsidy program is mandated by the new law, the Bayanihan to Heal as One Act, which was signed by President Rodrigo Duterte on March 25, 2020 as part of efforts to help people economically displaced by the coronavirus disease 2019 pandemic. The amount varies, depending on the prevailing regional minimum wage rates and takes into account the other subsidy programs in cash or in-kind, under the DSWD. The government stressed that SAP’s priority are families who need cash assistance the most, particularly those belonging in the informal sector whose livelihood has been most affected by the quarantine. The charges were filed by the Philippine National Police’s Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) Region 6, according to Police Lieutenant Colonel Gervacio Balmaceda Jr., regional director.

THE last day of the Day/Night Fourth round Regional Four-Day Championship fixture between Guyana Jaguars and Barbados Pride had promised so much, but rain brought a premature end to the game last evening at the Guyana National Stadium.The Jaguars suffered a sensational batting collapse in their second innings to set the visitors 161 for victory.However,fiery opening spells from pacers Keon Joseph and Raymond Reifer saw the hosts struck three times before rain forced the players off the field, and play could never resume after that.The Barbados Pride were 23-3 at that point. Reifer had taken 2-13, while Joseph had 1-12.Earlier, off-spinner Royston Chase and left-arm spinner Jomal Warrican shared eight wickets in 20.2 overs, and were the chief destroyers of Guyana’s batting.Chase finished with 4-41, and Warrican ended with 4-12 as the Guyanese, who started the final day at 32-2, suffered a batting meltdown in the morning session, and were bundled out for 137 in 35.2 overs.Jonathan Carter held on to one of his five catches, and in the process saw the dismissal of Raymond Riefer off Jomal Warrican.After being at 79-3 at one stage, the hosts’ last seven wickets fell for a meagre 58 runs as the batsmen failed to read the visitors spin duo.Former West Indies Under-19 captain Shimron Hetymer top-scored for the Jaguars, with an entertaining knock of 67, his third half-century. He smashed nine fours and a six in his 83-ball knock, which spanned 126 minutes.At the start of the day’s play, Hetymer and Gudakesh Motie kept the visitors at bay for 70 minutes, and in the process added a further 47 runs.The 19-year-old Hetymer was his usual aggressive self, hitting Kemar Roach through the extra cover region before spanking Justin Greaves for another boundary through the leg-side.He then smashed Roach for another extra-cover boundary, and got to his free-flowing half-century with a single off Stoute,off just 62 balls, with eight fours.Hetymer continued in his aggressive manner, lofting Greaves for a maximum over mid-on, but the right-arm seamer responded by ending the promising 51-run partnership, when he had Motie taken at the wicket for ten.Thereafter, the visitors’ spinners broke the backbone of the hosts batting. It was during that phase when the hosts played some poor cricket that led to their down fall. You would have expected more commitment from a team that has been a dominant force for the past two seasons.Warrican spilled a return offer from Vishual Singh but the diminutive West Indies ‘A’ team batsman failed to make full use of the opportunity, and was taken at first slip off Chase, five balls later.At 110-4, the situation called for a calm head and steady hands, but the remaining batsmen could not provide any of the two.The spinners began to exploit whatever bounce and turn was on offer from the pitch, and in the process looked in complete control of proceedings.Warrican removed both Hetymer and Shivnarine Chanderpaul, while Chase had Christopher Barnwell, all in similar fashion, edging to first slip.Bramble was trapped leg before wicket to Chase, while Warrican claimed the final two wickets of Reifer and Keon Joseph.An early breakthrough was vital, and the hosts got exactly that from their opening bowlers. Joseph, who continued to impress with his pace and accuracy, trapped Anthony Alleyne leg before wicket with the third ball.Minutes later Shai Hope was undone by a superb delivery from Reifer, which took the edge through to Bramble. Both batsmen fell without scoring, and after three overs, the visitors reached 11-2 at the interval.Soon after Kraigg Brathwaite edged Reifer low to second slip, where Barnwell juggled the ball before Bramble completed the catch on the rebound.Shamarh Brooks joined Chase, but the rain soon followed.The Jaguars will host Trinidad and Tobago Red Force from Friday.SCOREBAORDGuyana Jaguars 2nd innings (o/n 32-2)R Chandrika lbw b Roach 0S Hetymer c Carter b Warrican 67L Johnson c Brooks b Chase 13G Motie c Dowrich b Greaves 10V Singh c Carter b Chase 12S Chanderpaul c Carter b Warrican 4C Barnwell c Carter b Chase 1R Reifer c Carter b Warrican 7A Bramble lbw b Chase 8V Permaul not out 5K Joseph b Warrican 0Extras: (nb-6, b-4) 10Total: (all out; 35.2 overs) 139Fall of Wickets: 1-0, 2-28, 3-79, 4-110, 5-110, 6-115, 7-115, 8-126, 9-137, 10-137Bowlers: Roach 9-1-44-1, Chase 13-2-41-4, Greaves 4-0-23-1, Stoute 2-0-13-0, Warrican 7.2-2-12-4Barbados Pride 2nd inningsK Brathwaite c wk Bramble b Reifer 7A Alleyne lbw b Joseph 0S Hope c wk Bramble b Reifer 0R Chase not out 5S Brooks not out 11Extras: (nb-2) 2Total: (for three wickets; 8.1 overs) 23Fall of Wickets: 1-1, 2-6, 3-11Bowlers: Joseph 4.1-1-12-1, Reifer 4-1-13-2
(CMC) – WOEFUL West Indies ended their ill-fated tour of New Zealand in the same wretched manner in which it started, plummeting to a heavy 119-run defeat in the final Twenty20 International here yesterday.Colin Munro’s record-breaking third career T20I hundred of 104 was the catalyst behind the hosts’ imperious 243 for five off their 20 overs – their highest-ever total in the shortest format.Fellow opener Martin Guptill stroked 63 and Tom Bruce, 23, ensuring New Zealand maintained their momentum to gather the seventh-highest total in T20s.In reply, West Indies produced yet another dismal batting performance, collapsing to a depressing 124 all out in the 17th over.Only Andre Fletcher with a polished 46 from 32 balls showed any sense of purpose, and was one of only three frontline batsmen to reach double figures and the only one to pass 20.The Caribbean side’s woes were compounded by the unavailability of Shai Hope who injured his shoulder while fielding and was unable to bat.Not for the first time this tour, the Windies were tormented by seamer Tim Southee (3-21) and new-ball partner Trent Boult (2-29) while leg-spinner Ish Sodhi claimed two for 25, as the Black Caps claimed their biggest-ever win in T20s and the third largest overall.For West Indies, the defeat was their seventh on tour in internationals after losing both Tests, all three one-dayers and two T20s. The second T20I was washed out after just nine overs on New Year’s Day.The reigning T20 World champions have also now lost six of their last 12 matches in the shortest format.Opting to bat first at Bay Oval, New Zealand were propelled by a 136-run opening stand between Munro and Guptill – the country’s third-highest stand for any wicket in T20s.The left-handed Munro was utterly dominant en route to his third score of fifty or more in the series, facing 53 balls and striking three fours and 10 sixes.No Windies bowler was spared from the 30-year-old’s brutal all-out assault, as he raced to his half-century off 26 balls before reaching three figures off 47 deliveries to mark the fastest-ever hundred for New Zealand in T20s and joint sixth-fastest of all-time.He also became the first batsman to score three hundreds in T20Is.Guptill, meanwhile, was more than just a spectator, lashing five fours and a pair of sixes in a 38-ball knock – his 11th half-century in this format.With the Windies bowlers loose, the pair cashed in, plundering 52 off the first five and 118 at the half-way point of the innings.Debutant medium pacer Rayad Emrit’s first two deliveries in T20 cricket were greeted with a couple of leg-side sixes by Munro, in an over which leaked 16 runs and saw the South Africa-born dynamo to his half-century.Guptill eventually edged a wide one from Emrit to fall to a catch at the wicket in the 12th over but Munro and Bruce kept the pressure on the Windies in a 55-run, second-wicket partnership.Even when the hosts lost four wickets for 35 runs in 19 deliveries, the runs kept flowing with 60 runs gushing from the last five overs.The Windies then had a disastrous start to their run chase when Chadwick Walton drove the first ball of the innings from Southee into Munro’s lap at cover.Four balls later, superstar Chris Gayle was surprised by a short ball and gloved a simple catch behind to depart without scoring, leaving the Windies tottering on one run for two wickets.Fletcher and Rovman Powell (16) then staged the best partnership of the innings, putting on 41 for the third wicket.The right-handed Fletcher struck four fours and three sixes – two of which were sweetly-timed back-to-back inside out blows over extra cover in the sixth over by left-arm spinner Anaru Kitchen which went for 20 runs.Powell holed out to cover off Kitchen in the fourth over and Shimron Hetmyer was tragically run-out for seven in the fifth over, leaving West Indies on 49 for four.Fletcher posted 31 off 20 balls for the fifth wicket with captain Carlos Brathwaite (15) to temporarily stem the flow of wickets but once the Grenadian missed a heave at a straight one from Sodhi and was bowled off-stump, the last four wickets tumbled for 44 runs.SCOREBOARDNEW ZEALAND inningsM.

“[This is] a wake-up call to those persons who genuinely advocated for implementing reforms,” he said.Fifa, which accepted Scala’s resignation and installed his deputy Sindi Mabaso Koyana as acting chairman, insists the Swiss has “misinterpreted the purpose of the decision taken” by its congress.It added in a statement: “The decision was made to permit the council to appoint members on an interim basis. In addition, the measure allows for the swift removal of members who have breached their obligations.“The council fully respects the independence of the audit and compliance and the ethics committees, and any suggestions to the contrary are without merit.”Scala has played a key role in pushing through reforms after the scandals that prompted the departures of former Fifa president Sepp Blatter and Uefa counterpart Michel Platini.Blatter, who had led Fifa since 1998, stood down last year and was later suspended from football for six years for breaching ethics guidelines.Platini announced earlier this week he would be stepping down after failing to have a six-year ban from football overturned by a Court of Arbitration for Sport panel.The first Fifa congress led by new president Gianni Infantino, who succeeded Blatter in February, took place in Mexico City last Thursday and Friday.During the congress, Fifa elected its first female secretary general with the appointment of Senegal’s Fatma Samba Diouf Samoura. She succeeds Jerome Valcke, who in February was banned from football-related activity for 12 years.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Domenico Scala, Fifa’s head of auditing and compliance, has resigned in protest at reforms at the governing body of world football. Scala is angry the new Fifa council will have the ability to appoint and sack those in charge of its committees, including auditing, ethics and finance. The council replaced the Fifa executive committee in the aftermath of a corruption scandal at the organisation.Committees had been “deprived of their independence”, said Scala. Fifa said the Swiss “has made unfounded claims which are baseless”.Scala says he is “consternated” by a decision that makes it possible for the council to “impede” investigations by either dismissing committee members or “through the threat of a dismissal”. This, he added, “undermines a central pillar of the good governance of Fifa and destroys a substantial achievement of the reforms”.
Starting from last Saturday, the Department of State Security (DSS) commenced the lockdown of the Sports-city by combing all the nooks and crannies of the facility for anything that may breach security during the ‘Mother of All Rally’ scheduled to hold at the Teslim Balogun Stadium, adjacent the National Stadium.Only officials with valid identification card of the Federal Ministry of Youth and Sports are allowed entry into the stadium.Miscreants who usually hang around the facility begging for alms from sports officials and star athletes; sports shop owners and workers; food vendor; and patrons of the two popular bars within the Sports-city, namely, O’Jez and Old Skool have all been shut out as the lockdown has paralyzed social and business activities at the place.Even sportsmen and women who use the facility for their daily trainings have all been told to go somewhere else till after the visit.THISDAY checks revealed that not less than N20million must have been lost daily for the period of the lockdown of the facility.It was also learnt that the open space at the National Stadium is to serve as car park for the thousands of APC top officials; governors from the South-west region; serving ministers and elected legislators as well as their supporters during the rally.President Buhari’s helicopter is also expected to land at the National Stadium before taking a walk down to the Teslim Stadium for the rally.It was further learnt that organisers of the rally had considered the National Stadium to host the rally due to its 60,000-seating capacity but the deplorable state of the edifice may have been the reason why they opted for the use of the smaller ground of Teslim.The Tafawa Balewa Square in Lagos Island used to be another option for mega rally like what Lagos is going to witness on Saturday.Apart from the sports men and women that have been locked out of the abandoned edifice, many social events and sports clubs that make use of the tennis courts, swimming arena have been forced to look somewhere else till after the rally.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Femi SolajaThe expected visit of President Muhammadu Buhari to Lagos this Saturday for the grand finale of the All Progressives Congress (APC) campaign has paralyzed activities at the National Stadium in Surulere.The APC is scheduled to round up the South-west leg of its campaign within the next few days ahead of the February 16th Presidential Election.
Published on January 30, 2012 at 12:00 pm Contact Stephen: firstname.lastname@example.org | @Stephen_Bailey1 Comments Trying to replace an All-American in Liz Hogan stands to be Gary Gait’s biggest challenge. Although with two talented goaltenders ready to step up and take over, the Syracuse head coach might have some of the burden taken off his shoulders.Either way, Hogan is gone and the No. 12 Orange has no choice but to proceed without her.‘Liz was great, all-time greatest goalie I think in Syracuse, and she’ll be missed,’ Gait said. ‘We appreciate everything she brought, but now it’s time to move on. We’ve got two new players that are looking to step in and fill those shoes.’Sophomore Alyssa Costantino and freshman Kelsey Richardson, the pair Gait referred to, are left with the tough task of filling the void left by Hogan. As the second-string goalie last season, Costantino learned under the Big East’s leader in save percentage, starting one of the five games she appeared in. Richardson, on the other hand, has no collegiate experience, but enters the season after a dominating senior campaign at Jordan-Elbridge High School. Gait said the two have performed comparatively thus far in practice and have an equal chance of starting the Orange’s season opener against No. 10 Boston College on Feb. 21.But that’s nearly a month away, and both goaltenders have opportunities inside and outside of practice to impress their coach to earn the starting job.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSU traveled to Orlando, Fla., on Saturday for the U.S. Lacrosse Champion Challenge and a scrimmage against England — the team’s first live action of the season, excluding an alumni scrimmage last weekend in the Carrier Dome. It was also the first real chance for the goalies to prove themselves.So far, Gait likes what he has seen.‘(I’m) extremely happy. They’re very talented,’ Gait said. ‘It’s just going to take a little confidence building, to jump in there and make a few saves. I think you’ll see them really develop into solid goaltenders.’That development may be through a joint effort in games.Gait said it’s possible Costantino and Richardson split time throughout the season. By running a two-goalie system, Gait could provide both underclassmen with valuable experience while ensuring the Orange always has a capable backup on the sidelines.In practice now, though, both candidates are pushing each other for the leg-up to start against the Eagles in less than a month.For Richardson, the shots she’s facing now are harder and more accurate than those she faced in high school. During her senior year at Jordan-Elbridge, she recorded 197 saves and turned away 55 percent of shots against her.‘It’s definitely different,’ Richardson said. ‘The competition is better at this level, obviously, but I’ve had a lot of fun lately. Starting off the season, just coming into a new challenge and trying to fight for the spot, it’s been fun.’For Costantino, this season brings immense opportunity.She finished last season with a 38 percent save percentage and led the Orange to victory in her lone start. But behind an All-American and four-year starter, Costantino’s minutes were few and far between.Though she didn’t earn much on-field experience, Costantino learned and adapted to the college level under the tutelage of Hogan.‘As a freshman I think being a goalie is possibly one of the hardest positions to adjust to because you look to be relied on as the leader of the defense,’ said Hogan, who is now an assistant coach at Colgate. ‘But also you have to work up to the speed of the game, the shot selection, the shot placement.‘So I think as a freshman she adjusted pretty well, and hopefully with another year under her belt she’s actually improved even more.’Gait feels Costantino has improved, but not enough to separate herself from Richardson.The position battle has been highly competitive in practices, both goalies said. The two alternate turns between the pipes during 7-on-7s and other drills, and when one makes an impressive save, the other is driven to match it.‘It’s friendly competition,’ Costantino said. ‘It’s good to have that person to keep working against, and you’re trying your best every time because you’re trying to beat her out. So it’s only helping both of us.’The duo will continue working to improve so they can challenge opposing offenses this season.But, whether splitting time or playing with a consistent starter, the goalie tandem will be hard-pressed to fill the shoes left by Hogan.‘Me and Kelsey both have big shoes to fill,’ Costantino said. ‘We’re working on everything we can to be just like Liz.’email@example.com Facebook Twitter Google+
Less than a month after being overpowered by Duke faceoff specialist Brendan Fowler in the national championship, Syracuse may have found its answer to the ongoing problem at the X — only he won’t arrive for another year.Max Parker, a rising senior at Lake Highland Preparatory School in Orlando, Fla., committed to the Orange on Saturday, the Orlando Sentinel reported. Parker won almost 75 percent of his faceoffs as a junior for state champion Lake Highland. SU hasn’t had a player lead the team in faceoff wins and win at least 50 percent of his faceoffs since Danny Brennan won 214 in 2008.Midfielder Chris Daddio led Syracuse with 77 faceoff wins in 2012 and 115 in 2013. He will likely reprise his role as the Orange’s top faceoff man in 2014, his senior season. SU won just 9-of-30 faceoffs in the national title game against the Blue Devils and 24-of-91 overall in four NCAA tournament games.

Bill Butters’ replacement has been found.Mike Eaves announced Friday morning that former Badger defenseman Matt Walsh will serve as the Wisconsin (1-5-2, 1-3-2 WCHA) men’s hockey team’s interim assistant coach for the remainder of the 2012-13 season.Walsh played for Wisconsin from 1982-86 and was a member of the 1983 national championship team as a freshman. With defensive roots in the program, Walsh will take over defensive coaching responsibilities for Wisconsin – the position Butters left vacant Nov. 7. “We are really excited to have Matt come aboard,” Eaves said in a press release Friday. “He is an alumni and a disciple of Grant Standbrook. He comes in as a defense-minded coach, having played that position as a Badger.“I’ve gotten to know Matt a little bit through Wisconsin hockey. He’s been very involved in high school hockey and has coached in Wisconsin. Being an [alumnus], he’s got deep roots. He’s very excited about coming to this program and helping us move forward.”Walsh has served as the coach-in-chief for USA Hockey’s Central District since 1995, coordinating seminars for USA Hockey’s Coaching Education Program across a six-state area.Walsh’s coaching resume is extensive, as he served as head coach of Team Wisconsin from 1991-96 and in 1998 and 1999. He was also an assistant coach from 1988-90. From 1994-96 he also served as the head coach of Stoughton High School’s hockey program.In his press release, Eaves made clear the coaching search was a lengthy one. According to the UW head coach, much thought and effort went into finding Walsh, but they also worked at a steady pace because they did not want the position to remain open for too long to avoid putting an extra burden on both Eaves and assistant coach Gary Shuchuk.Walsh started working with the Badgers Friday when they hosted Minnesota State (3-5-2, 1-5-0) Friday and Saturday. Walsh’s position only lasts through April, when the program will reopen a national search to find a permanent assistant coach, according to the UW Athletic Department.
