View comments Letting her play do the talking, Toni Rose Basas, Far Eastern U’s calm outside hitter, rarely shows her emotions during games.ADVERTISEMENT Basas, though, is ready to let out her inner feisty, and that’s to be expected especially with the Lady Tamaraws going up against the equally-fiery defending champion De La Salle in the UAAP Season 80 women’s volleyball Finals.If how a simple gesture from Desiree Cheng managed to rile up Basas during one of their elimination round meetings was any indication, there will be fireworks when they meet starting this Saturday for the best-of-three series.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“I have to be more smug because I know in myself that if I come out a with a little bit of swagger I can play better,” said Basas in Filipino after their Wednesday training.Basas’ most most unforgettable show of emotion, was during FEU’s second round matchup with La Salle when she performed a slow clap as if mocking the Lady Spikers.

Dear Editor,I had previously dealt with capitalism and socialism as systems upon which managing countries’ economic activities are based, and had pointed out that socialism, upon which the policies of the PPP and PNC-led coalition are based, sees private ownership and enterprise as a threat to its existence; is oppressive; inefficient in utilizing an economy’s resources; breeds corruption throughout the economy; and leads to sub-optimal outcomes in national welfare, often resulting in poverty.The only true beneficiaries of socialism are in fact the ruling elite, their friends and families, and rogue elements. These combined, the outcomes with which Guyanese are for the most part quite familiar, make socialism wholly unsuitable for responding to Guyana’s immediate needs.It therefore becomes very difficult to explain support for political parties and governments which embrace socialism and its oppressive, anti-social elements as their basis for administering Guyana’s economic affairs.Economies are generally subdivided into three main groups: 1. Households, which comprise workers; 2. Firms, and 3. Government. Workers constitute a significantly larger number of persons than those who own and represent firms. As such, political parties generally shape their policies to capture the votes of this group, while ensuring that their proposals also cater to the needs of firms. In democratic societies without racial tensions, decisions are generally made based on the offerings and success or failure of the policies of the contesting political parties.In Guyana, where racial tensions generally dominate decision-making, Guyanese have, in the past, been forced to choose among political parties whose socialist-based policies ultimately result in increased hardships for workers; and secondly, have been encouraged to vote along racial lines, a practice I refer to as tribal politics.Worse than this is that our political parties also engage in tribal economics, or the embrace of policies which favour a particular ethnic group. Naturally, Guyanese whose ethnic political party is not in power generally face marginalization, which results in more acute depression in welfare compared with the general population. Both Indian and African Guyanese generally, and specific communities, can attest to this experience.This has been the unfortunate dilemma of our country after fifty-two years of independence, which has seen Guyanese suffer under the socialist policies of our major political parties and the embrace of race politics. This is what obtains even now, and seems destined to become our future.I submit that this cannot go on. It is impossible for Guyanese to achieve any significant increase in their welfare and incomes under the politics and policies of these political parties. Guyana has had the benefit of the experience of both developing and developed economies from which to draw in crafting a sound framework to guide our politics and economic policies; upon which we can finally start to move Guyana forward.This has been crafted by me, with the benefit of public criticisms, and I intend to unveil same at the upcoming launch of our political party. Interested persons may view them on social media.Guyanese are encouraged to study our proposals, and make suggestions and recommendations on how they can be improved. As a new political party, we are also looking for Guyanese to take up the challenge of offering a better system of government than what currently obtains under the PPP and PNC-led coalition. What we cannot and must not allow are to have the politics and policies which have failed us in the past dominate our future. Let us put aside race and work together to bring Guyana into the 21st century. To borrow from American President Franklin D. Roosevelt during World War 2, “We Can, We Must, We Will!”Because failure is not an option.Yours Faithfully,Craig Sylvester
A security guard was on Thursday hauled before the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts on an indictable offence of attempting to commit murder.Rondell Mitchell was arraigned before Principal Magistrate Judy Latchman.The 30-year-old man of Friendship, East Bank Demerara, is accused of attempting to kill Sherwin Anderson on October 28, 2018, while he was in the vicinity of the Meadow Bank fishery wharf.The court heard that Mitchell discharged a loaded firearm at Anderson with intent to murder him, in the presence of Oquacy Harvey and Romario Nurse.Police Prosecutor Quinn Harris informed the court that on October 28 at about 09:30h, Anderson was at the fishery wharf when the accused allegedly took his mobile phone and flashed a picture of him.This annoyed him, and a heated argument ensured between the two. Mitchell then armed himself with a 9mm pistol and shot the victim in his abdomen. The two other men were in the vicinity when the man was shot.The injured Anderson was picked up and rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital where he underwent an emergency surgery.After listing to the prosecution’s submission, Mitchell was remanded to prison and the case was adjourned to November 28.
– Diaspora turns out in numbers, calls out Govt for breach of ConstitutionA fundraiser organised by A Partnership for National Unity/Alliance For Change (APNU/AFC) coalition Government in New York (NY) was completely overshadowed by more than one hundred protesters picketed the meeting, demanding elections and constitutional compliance.Scenes from the protestHeld at the Richi Rich Palace on Atlantic Avenue in Richmond Hill, NY on Sunday, the fundraiser featured Public Security Minister Khemraj Ramjattan representing the AFC, together with Georgetown Mayor Ubraj Narine representing APNU, and a small group in attendance.The Minister and entourage arrived to be greeted by the large crowd of protesters behind NYPD barricades at the door of the restaurant, holding placards that read, “Ramjattan you sold AFC to the PNC”, “Ramjattan must go” and “(Ramjattan) a disgrace to Guyanese.”Officers from the NYPD were also present, although they left the protesters alone and merely watched from a distance.There were even placards aimed at Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) Chairperson, retired Justice Claudette Singh. One such placard read, “GECOM Chairman stand by your integrity!”The Minister and company quickly entered the building without engaging the protesters. Other guests arrived, but a few of the would-be attendees turned back upon spotting the large crowd of protesters awaiting them.When someone attending the fundraiser did engage protesters, that ‘engagement’ took the form of an unidentified woman showing the crowd her middle finger before entering the Richi Rich Palace.According to one protester who was interviewed by a member of the local media fraternity on the ground, the fact that Ramjattan hurriedly bypassed hundreds of the Guyanese diaspora picketing his Government just to speak to a few in the luxurious establishment spoke volumes.“He (Ramjattan) cannot engage us because he has nothing to tell us. You look at the crowd outside? There are about 10, 15 people inside. There are hundreds of us outside. That alone tells you that the diaspora rejects the AFC and the Government,” the protester said.“They cannot engage us. What is he going to tell us? They are illegal occupiers. When the AFC was formed, they claimed to bring fairness. They’ve joined with the PNC to bully the PPP and the Guyanese people, so there’s nothing he can tell us. He can’t talk about development, housing, finance, anything. All he can talk about is free Buju Banton tickets.”The Minister’s failure to engage the crowd of protesters when he arrived did not sit well with the other protesters. According to one of them, Richi Rich might have in fact done itself a disservice by hosting the APNU/AFC fundraiser, since the American public would have seen the protest action against a cabinet the protesters contend is illegal.“He (Ramjattan) has ten people inside, including the staff. The Minister came out, saw hundreds of Guyanese protesting and calling for elections now, and he going to 10 people inside including the staff of Richi Rich. This business has destroyed itself by hosting Ramjattan here today, with 10 people inside and hundreds of people outside calling for free and fair elections now. What are they doing?Why are they dragging their foot? What is the Attorney General (Basil Williams) doing?” the passionate protester stressed.DelaysArticle 106 (6) of the Constitution of Guyana states: “The Cabinet including the President shall resign if the Government is defeated by the vote of a majority of all the elected members of the National Assembly on a vote of confidence.”Meanwhile, Article 106 (7) goes on to say: “Notwithstanding its defeat, the Government shall remain in office and shall hold an election within three months, or such longer period as the National Assembly shall by resolution supported by not less than two-thirds of the votes of all the elected members of the National Assembly determine, and shall resign after the President takes the oath of office following the election.”A no-confidence motion was passed against the Government since December 21 of last year. However, elections have not been held and there has been no resignation. Instead, the Government went through several levels of court litigation, unsuccessfully arguing that the no-confidence motion was not validly passed.At the level of the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ), that final court of arbitration had thrown out the Government’s case and had handed down judgement saying that when the no-confidence motion was passed on December 21, 2019, Article 106 of the Constitution had immediately been activated. In addition, the court had noted that the provisions of the article were clear.Instead of immediately starting serious preparations to hold elections in the shortest possible time, however, GECOM proceeded to carry out house-to-house registration based on the orders of unilaterally appointed former Chairman Justice (retired) James Patterson. A court case challenging this process and seeking to have GECOM comply with the constitution was in fact filed.While that process was ultimately stopped by his successor, the decision to merge the new data from house-to-house registration with the national register of registrants and to prioritize the printing of identification cards, instead of seeking to have elections held as soon as possible, has been criticized by People’s Progressive Party (PPP) nominated GECOM commissioners as part of the Government’s delaying tactics.Since then, the Commission, complete with Justice Singh and the six commissioners, have met with the two main political parties. At those meetings, assurances were given that GECOM would seek to hold elections this year.
“Probably in the next break it will be good to make the final decision,” said Alonso in the paddock at Malaysia. “I think between Malaysia and Japan, we will be busy here working at the track.“But definitely after Japan that will probably be my wish, my deadline, to make the decision happen – and choose whatever I feel is the best.“I want to be competitive next year. I want to be back on the podiums. I want to be back in victory. I want to fight for the world championship, and I still need some more information to make this decision.“But at the same time I remain optimistic, because McLaren is one of the best, or the best team in the history of the sport in F1. So I think we have everything to make it happen.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000McLaren’s Spanish driver Fernando Alonso arrives for the first practice session of the Formula One Singapore Grand Prix, on September 15, 2017LONDON, United Kingdom, Sep 29- Fernando Alonso is looking to announce his future before the United States Grand Prix weekend (Oct 20 – Oct 22), but still “needs more information” whether to stay at McLaren.The Woking team are very confident the Spaniard will sign a new deal now that Honda have been replaced by Renault as their engine suppliers, yet he has revealed to the press that he still has not made his mind up.
Sylvan Ebanks-Blake 1 Former Manchester United and Wolves striker Sylvan Ebanks-Blake is training with Bradford City.Despite a brief trial at Brentford earlier this month, the 28-year-old has been without a permanent club after being released by Ipswich Town during the summer.However, Bantams manager Phil Parkinson has invited the forward to train at the League One club with a view to potentially bringing him on board full time.“We’re just having a look at him to see what his fitness levels are like and if he fits in with our group of players,” said Parkinson.“If a good striker comes available, it’s worth looking at him. He’s got pedigree but he’s not played for a while and he needs games under his belt.“But the opportunity to look at him was too good to turn down.”
Former West Ham favourite Dean Ashton has told talkSPORT there are ‘no excuses’ for the fan attack on the Manchester United team bus which marred the build-up to the Hammers’ final game at Upton Park on Tuesday.A video taken by Red Devils youngster Jesse Lingard showed the United stars taking cover inside their coach as a rowdy section of Irons supporters smashed windows with hurled bottles and other objects on their way into the ground.The ugly scenes delayed kick-off by 45 minutes and tainted what was otherwise a pleasant build-up to their final appearance at their home for over 100 years.West Ham revealed on Wednesday morning that they hit impose life bans on those involved in the attack, and Ashton also condemned the supporters’ shocking behaviour.“There are no excuses for what happened, and it marred the atmosphere slightly beforehand,” the ex-Hammers striker told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast.“You don’t want to see those scenes before a game like that, you want it to be more of a celebration.”When the game was finally underway, West Ham gave the Boleyn the perfect send off with a dramatic 3-2 victory, thanks to Winston Reid’s late winning goal.Ashton added: “The way West Ham started set the tone for the whole game. Manchester United couldn’t match their intensity in the first-half and West Ham should really have been two or three up by half-time, but as usual they made it difficult for themselves.“But they’ve just had great character this year, and yesterday’s win was another great example of that.“It was an excellent game and a great way for West Ham to end their time at the Boleyn.”
They also plan to wait later this year to buy and are visiting fewer stores. Holiday buying started strong this year on “Black Friday” – the industry yardstick for day-after Thanksgiving purchases that push most retailers into the black for the first time all year. But store traffic and purchases have since fallen back. November shopping figures were mixed. While retail sales rose a better-than-expected 1.2 percent in November, analysts still forecast a weak holiday buying season. Also, more than half of the 43 retailers reporting to the International Council of Shopping Centers registered lower-than-expected sales. Marie Driscoll, a senior equity analyst at Standard & Poor’s, said the firm is projecting about a 3 percent increase in sales, but that it will take until January to see that as shoppers begin to redeem gift cards. Probably the single biggest change affecting consumers’ perceived financial health is declining real estate values and the big freeze that has tightened credit. This holiday season, for the first time in recent memory, homeowners can’t simply rely on easy refinancing or taking out a cheap home equity line of credit to finance the purchase of big ticket items. Despite recent interest rate cuts, mortgage rates are still up to 2001 levels, and lending activity is at a standstill. Adlai Hayes, president of mortgage lender On Time Capital in Culver City, said refi applications are down 65 percent to 70 percent from one year ago, for the same reasons that home loans are now harder to get. “All are referring to it as back to old-school banking, which means fully documented loans.” For people struggling with mortgage payments, prudence is absolutely key this season. “If somebody is struggling with and going to a lender asking (for help on their loan and the lender sees) all this added debt, they’re just not going to get much sympathy,” said Richard Pittman, director of housing and counseling at ByDesign Financial Solutions, a credit counseling nonprofit based in Commerce. “They had better be cutting back on Christmas, Hanukkah, the Kwanzaa and all that.” He said he was talking to one couple in trouble on their house recently who said they were so busy they had to pay a dog walker $100 a month. “When you’re talking about your house on the line and you’re worrying about the dog, there’s something wrong.” Even among consumers who consider themselves upper-middle class and don’t have specific real estate worries, there’s the feeling that it’s just not a wise time to spend. “I usually spend frivolously (for the holidays)” said Bobbie Horowitz, a retired schoolteacher from Tarzana. “I’m trying this year to be more conservative.” In some cases, she’s gone out of her way to track down bargains. Horowitz and her partner, Steve Kleinberg, have four children and two grandchildren between them. They were out recently trying to find a Nintendo Wii home video console for some of the grandkids. They went to several stores trying to find the $250 game hardware, but every place was sold out. Finally, they found a Wii at a store called Aahs! in Sherman Oaks, but Aahs! was asking $499 for it. Horowitz and Kleinberg drove away and plan to follow up on a cheaper offer for the console online. She said it’s not that she couldn’t afford the higher price. But she wants to do her part to break the cycle of spending more and more on toys during the holidays, not just for her, but for her adult children who are raising kids of their own. “I worry for them. Things are so much more expensive than they used to be.” Decisions about how to finance the holidays don’t affect everyone. Horowitz and Kleinberg said that friends of theirs in the upper-income brackets are completely unaware of any pullback or need to spend more conservatively. “They’re going to South America, Europe … I have one friend who’s going to Antarctica,” Horowitz said. On the opposite side of the spectrum, paying for Christmas presents is the last thing on the mind of someone like Joe Chipman. The 22-year-old Moorpark College student is homeless at the moment, a result of bad timing and bad luck. Chipman clears about $500 a month working part time at a computer repair shop in Simi Valley, but he’s looking for a second job to supplement his earnings. He stays with friends when he can, and his short-term goal is to save enough to enroll full time next semester. “The ratio between the cost of living and the minimum wage is ridiculous,” said Chipman, who said he took the bus to Woodland Hills to look for seasonal retail work. “I think the current economic status of the U.S. is in a shambles. We need serious intervention.” Barbara.Correa@dailynews.com 818-713-3662160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

Meanwhile, prices on everything from milk to multimedia players are jumping. Even wealthy shoppers are on edge watching the wild volatility of the stock market. “Consumers are more challenged than ever before,” said Britt Beemer, chairman of America’s Research Group, a retail forecasting firm. “Never in my lifetime have we had food and gas prices up at the same time. Toys are in a free-for-all, nobody knows what’s safe or what to buy. People might say, I’ll buy a few gift cards and let it go at that.” According to an America’s Research Group poll conducted last month, 22 percent of consumers said they planned to spend less on Christmas this year than last, about twice the average percentage during the last 10 years. Fears of a gathering storm of economic gloom won’t cancel Christmas, but they’re conjuring up plenty of dark clouds. An unwelcome, early package of high gas and food prices, expensive credit, rising foreclosures and a volatile stock market has many shoppers – rich and poor – planning a little holiday belt-tightening. Joanne Laurie, a mother of three shopping for kids’ books at a Woodland Hills Barnes & Noble, is making a concerted effort this year to control spending and minimize credit-card purchases that will need to paid off in the new year. “I think everybody is concerned about the economy,” she said. “There’s a feeling that things are tightening up.”
