Philippine Army to acquire MANPADS, self-propelled howitzers LATEST STORIES Thoss, however, took it upon himself to be that man in the middle for the Aces especially with Blackwater not having a legitimate center underneath.Blackwater’s biggest player was 6-foot-5 rookie Abu Tratter and although he’s only two inches shorter than Thoss he mostly plays power forward since his college days at De La Salle.Thoss wasn’t just instrumental in the early stages of the game, he was also there in the clutch when the Aces needed him.Holding on to a 101-100 lead in the final minute of the game, Thoss squared up from the free throw line and calmly drained a jumper off of Chris Banchero’s assist with 34.3 seconds remaining.“It was a great team effort, everybody stepped up, and we needed it,” said Thoss, who was just one of the five Aces who finished in double figures. “We’re short on guys so it gives an opportunity for other players to step up and play.”ADVERTISEMENT Tom Brady most dominant player in AFC championship history Japeth Aguilar wins 1st PBA Finals MVP award for Ginebra Philippines make clean sweep in Men’s and Women’s 3×3 Basketball PLAY LIST 02:43Philippines make clean sweep in Men’s and Women’s 3×3 Basketball02:43Philippines make clean sweep in Men’s and Women’s 3×3 Basketball02:11SEA GAMES 2019: PH’s Nesthy Petecio boxing featherweight final (HIGHLIGHTS)02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

Dear Editor,Recently, video recordings have gone viral on social media of school children involved in unfortunate situations, some being violent and disrespectful. It must be noted that such events are not widespread across the education system. However, efforts must still be made to curb such behaviour.The Education Ministry will continue to collaborate with parents and other stakeholders to address these issues. Editor, currently, the Education Ministry is strengthening its school support unit with the aim of addressing social and other challenges which have no place in the school system.The Education Ministry is cognisant that more needs to be done by all parties in the education process if tangible outcomes are to be derived.Editor, this is not the time to point fingers, but it is an opportunity for greater collaboration between the schools and parents.It is on this note Editor, that the MoE is urging parents to engage their children frequently when they are at home. Editor, the word “engage” was chosen deliberately because it encompasses a number of areas.The MoE is asking parents to check frequently on how their children are doing in school. We must talk to our children, as parents they will tell you things in that informal setting that you would not have known ordinarily.Parents, foster relationships with your child’s teacher(s), so that you can be swiftly updated on anything noteworthy that is happening at school or if you need to visit the institution.Ask for the school’s telephone number and call randomly to be updated. When children are aware that you are monitoring them they are less likely to become problematic. Most importantly, Editor, the evidence has shown overwhelmingly that with the involvement of parents in the education process, the child’s academic performance improves significantly.Parents, you are at liberty to go to their schools and hear from their teachers as it relates to their academic performance and their general behaviour at school. No one can disallow you from visiting the school to check on your children’s welfare.Parents, know who your children’s friends are so that you are aware of the company they keep. You need to keep track of the places they normally will go when they are socialising. This is by no means a form of infringement but rather necessary steps that are integral in raising children of good quality.Parents and guardians, the Ministry of Education cannot do it alone, your support is vital. Additionally, it is important for parents to continue to impress upon children the importance of good manners, respect for themselves, their peers and any other person they interact with.The Ministry of Education is aware of the sacrifices parents continue to make daily in ensuring that their children are in school. The Education Ministry will continue to work with parents, communities and other stakeholders to ensure that our children become productive citizens contributing to the development of self and country.Yours respectfully,Public RelationsDepartmentMinistry of Education
In support of a green economy and sustainable development, the Private Sector Commission (PSC) and The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) on Monday signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU).Private Sector Commission Chairman Edward Boyer shakes the hand of TERI Director General Ajay MathurThe MoU, which will be binding for three years, allows for TERI to assist the PSC in the sustaining of green growth, conducting energy performance audits, sharing research and technology, exploring renewable energy options for business, and establishing linkages with Private Sector entities in India.It also allows the local Private Sector to explore collaborative efforts in other areas of mutual agreement.TERI’s assistance to the PSC would be supported through the company’s partnership with Energy Efficiency Services Limited, a Government of India Joint Venture Company.The PSC has established a partnership with the global company, which has been offering technical support to the Government for the past five years in the promotion of energy efficiency and renewable energy.TERI has assisted the Guyana Sugar Corporation (GuySuCo); Guyana Rice Development Board (GRDB); Guyana Power and Light Company (GPL) and Guyana Energy Agency (GEA) to yield technological and economic improvements.It has carried out an in-depth study on the root causes associated with the increase in power consumption of large consumers of GPL and assisted in an assessment of the Moco Moco hydroelectricity project. The institute also conducted a feasibility study for establishment of a Centre of Excellence for the Study of Biodiversity in Guyana.PSC Chairman Edward Boyer told the gathering at the signing, which was held at the Marriott Hotel in Kingston, that the Private Sector was cognisant of the need for the business community to support global efforts to combat climate change.President David Granger, Boyer noted, has continuously affirmed his commitment to creating a green economy that is centred on the generation of renewable energy. “He has even pledged thousands of hectares of forest to conservation,” said Boyer.“We are today signing a Memorandum of Understanding with TERI that allows us to harness technical advice and support, in areas of climate change, energy, environment and sustainable development,” Boyer remarked, adding that the subject of environmental protection was not something to which Guyanese could turn a blind eye.He further said that the common obstruction to the expansion of the local Private Sector and the country’s competitiveness was affordable, reliable energy, noting that the high cost of energy was perhaps the greatest barrier to development and expansion of the manufacturing sector.“While there has been temporary relief due to the current low price of oil, this situation is not expected to last. Alternative renewable, cheap and sustainable energy sources, therefore, assume greater importance and, in this area, TERI is an acknowledged global leader,” he highlighted.According to the PSC Chairman, “we look forward to working with the members of TERI and would maintain a close working relationship. We know that we would benefit immensely from the proven knowledge and experience of this organisation”.TERI Director General Ajay Mathur indicated that in an effort to further strengthen relationships with the Government and the PSC, TERI has decided to establish Guyana as a base from which the organisation would work in the Caribbean.He stated that the company has appointed a representative for the Caribbean, Shyam Nokta, who he said was instrumental in TERI coming to the Region.“TERI’s work has been well received by both the Government of Guyana and the Private Sector in Guyana and I must say on behalf of TERI that we are encouraged by the Government’s commitment to continue the partnership with TERI,” Mathur said. He added that the Government’s push towards a green economy, renewable energy, and the greening of towns and cities was admirable and a demonstration of its willingness to play a leading role as the global community moved towards urgent action to address climate change.“I wish to assure you of TERI’s commitment to work in Guyana and to share our knowledge and expertise with the Government, the Private Sector and the people of Guyana,” the Director General declared.

Oxlade-Chamberlain suffers another setback as Klopp confirms serious injury 4 gameday Jeff Hendrick had cancelled out a stunning goal from Ivory Coast midfielder Jean Michael Seri when Mitrovic, now a permanent fixture at Craven Cottage following his £22million switch from Newcastle, struck with two headers in two minutes.James Tarkowski pulled one back for Burnley but Schurrle’s late strike ensured Sean Dyche’s side, beaten in Europa League qualifying by Olympiakos on Thursday, were left empty-handed.Just three minutes had elapsed when Seri, another of Fulham’s big-money summer recruits, came up with a memorable first goal in English football.Collecting a ball inside from Luciano Vietto 25 yards out, Seri turned, looked up and launched a ferocious shot which left Clarets goalkeeper Joe Hart grasping at thin air. 4 Every current Premier League club’s best kit from the past decade Slavisa Jokanovic’s side are twelfth in the table after their third game back in the top flight silverware 4 Where Ancelotti ranks with every Premier League boss for trophies won Seri’s thunderous strike got things up and running for Fulham huge blow 4 A quickfire brace from Aleksandar Mitrovic helped Fulham register their first points of the season with a 4-2 win against Burnley at Craven Cottage.The Serbian scored 12 goals on loan last season to help the Cottagers achieve promotion back to the Premier League and showed he will do everything he can to keep them there too. smart causal ALTERED They could not muster a response after the break, though, and Fulham wrapped up the victory seven minutes from full-time.Mitrovic was denied a hat-trick when Hart pushed his shot against a post but Borussia Dortmund loanee Schurrle, who had earlier clipped the crossbar, drilled in the rebound.LINE-UPSFulham: Bettinelli, Fosu-Mensah, Odoi, Le Marchand, Bryan (Chambers 72), Seri, McDonald, Cairney (Zambo 78), Schurrle (Sessegnon 89), Mitrovic, Vietto Subs not used: Johansen, Christie, Fabricio, KamaraBurnley: Hart, Lowton, Mee, Tarkowski, Ward (Barnes 66), Lennon, Cork, Westwood, Gudmundsson (Taylor 19), Hendrick, Wood (Vokes 66)Subs not used: Heaton, Gibson, Bardsley, Long Tottenham v Brighton LIVE: talkSPORT commentary and team news for Boxing Day opener possible standings Which teams do the best on Boxing Day in the Premier League era? Tottenham predicted XI to face Brighton with Mourinho expected to make big changes Mitrovic has 14 goals in Fulham colours Hart was the busier keeper, though, getting down well to deny Schurrle at his near post and keeping out a fierce Timothy Fosu-Mensah drive.However, when Hart misjudged Tom Cairney’s deep cross Mitrovic stole in at the far post to head Fulham back into the lead.Moments later Mitrovic struck again, this time with a glancing header from Vietto’s cross.Shellshocked Burnley did manage to get back into it four minutes before half-time, although there was a hint of offside as Tarkowski prodded in Ben Mee’s header from a corner. REVEALED England’s most successful clubs of the past decade, according to trophies won Hendrick made it 1-1 after ten minutes but that was as good as it got for the Clarets Latest Premier League News REVEALED Yet if Burnley were feeling the effects of their midweek trip to Greece it was not immediately apparent, as they took just seven minutes to equalise.A loose pass from Maxime Le Marchand in midfield allowed them to break with Aaron Lennon leading the charge.The winger raced to the edge of the area before squaring the ball to Hendrick, who needed a couple of bites at the cherry before beating Fulham keeper Marcus Bettinelli at the far post.Bettinelli had not even featured in Fulham’s squad for the first two matches, but boss Slavisa Jokanovic dropped Fabri and overlooked fellow Spaniard Sergio Rico, both summer signings, to hand the former England Under-21 international a surprise recall.
