Mapalad kami na makaranas ng ganito, yung sumubok at hindi sumuko,” the 25-year-old Maraño wrote in an Instagram post.“Nagsisimula pa lang tayo. Malayo pa ang itatakbo ng Pilipinas Volleyball.

Dear Editor,During the summer that just ended, Guyanese-Americans organised community events specifically designed to reunite kinfolks from a particular village and surrounding area in Guyana. These have become annual rituals that constitute a remembrance and celebration of life in that village and of the presence and achievements of those villagers and their descendants settled in America. Recreating ties among those spread across different areas in America, transmitting kin-based connections to offspring, is one of the objectives behind these joyous village reunions.Over the last two decades, Indo-Guyanese village and school reunions have become an annual ritual in New York City. They have institutionalised people (or those Americans who trace their roots) from every Indo-Guyanese village imaginable at gatherings (reunions) this past summer; and in fact have been so doing for many years – at the Flushing Park, Cunningham Park, Baysley Park, or Roy Wilkins Park, all of which also host cricket.And these reunions carried their own distinct labels, like Port Mourant Day, or Albion Day, or Rose Hall Day, or Canal Day, or Lesbeholden Day, etc. These reunions were organised by volunteers. The reunions attracted hundreds every Saturday and Sunday from the first weekend in July through end of September. The largest gatherings were usually Port Mourant, Albion, Enmore, Canal, Windsor Forest, Uitvlugt, Wales, Rose Hall Canje, Black Bush, etc. Non-villagers (from surrounding villages) also attend the reunions. I attended several to observe proceedings from a journalistic and academic perspective.All the school and village reunions tend to bring together people from back home in a fraternity. These reunions had a plethora of fun activities, including cricket, volleyball, track and field (bag racing, needle threading), dancing, and of course liquor drinking and a lot of eating. They saw each other and talked about those who lost hair, gained bellies, used reading glasses, etc. They showed off old photos of themselves, children, grandchildren and neighbours.Large music boxes tend to entertain the crowds with Indian and chatney songs, and occasionally there is a live band. Karaoke from well-known artistes is also part of the entertainment.These social events have meaning. The reunion is used as a fundraising drive to improve the village back in the old country. Raffles are held, participants also donate money; collected proceeds are sent home or used to organise next year’s activities. The money is given to some worthy project in Guyana – fixing a school; helping poor families; honouring outstanding Guyanese from that area – recognition.For older folks and those in poor health, a reunion presents a chance to see people whom they had not seen for a long time, and may also be seeing for the last time. The gatherings are also a way to celebrate shared heritage and culture; to exchange stories, and to honor the memories of those who have passed on.Participants disclose that it is a wonderful opportunity to be with village folks. The reunions allow members of a village to re-engage in face-to-face interaction that would keep alive memories of village life and to reminisce and celebrate their families and personalities. The holding of a village reunion also gives youngsters born in that village and migrated, as well as American-born of parents from those villages, a chance to meet and get to know their ancestral villagers, and anyone else who is from that village; and by extension from Guyana. It is amazing to hear youngsters born in America say they are from Port Mourant, or Anna Regina, or Berbice, or Guyana. The reunions are a welcome activity – a re-enactment of nostalgia back to a time and place that formed an important part of Guyanese life. They help people catch up with the past after a long period, serve a therapeutic effect on the old, feeble and lonely. There is much consoling over losses, and gratification and joy at meeting again. The connections, shared values and common experiences re-unite them all once again, until another summer, when they hope to meet again.Yours truly,Vishnu Bisram
– stats show reduction in murder, robberiesDespite a different picture painted with the daily occurrence of criminal activity, the Guyana Police Force (GPF) is reporting an 18 per cent reduction in all categories of serious crimes recorded at the end of August 2016.In its monthly statistics released on Thursday, the GPF said that murder has been reduced by 10 per cent, compared to the same period last year. A similar pattern is seen in robberies.Gun-related robberies declined by seven per cent while a 17 per cent decrease was recorded in armed robberies where other instruments were used, and a nine per cent reduction in robberies where no instruments were used.Additionally, it was reported that there was a 19 per cent decrease in robberies with violence along with a 38 per cent decrease in larceny from the person. Furthermore, the police recorded a 20 per cent decrease in rape and a combined 40 per cent decrease in break and enter and larceny, and burglary.This statistical analysis comes two weeks after acting Police Commissioner David Ramnarine reported 15 per cent decline in serious crimes recorded from January 1 to August 23, compared to the same period last year.Some 91 murders were recorded thus far this year, reflecting an 11 per cent decrease of the 101 that were recorded in 2015. However, gun-related robberies recorded over the two comparative periods saw a levelling off with 473 cases in both years.Moreover, there were 32 cases of simple robberies last year compared to 28 as of August 23, and armed robberies with other instruments saw 232 cases last year compared to 206 this year, also representing an 11 per cent decrease.

PICO RIVERA – A local political group has failed to round up sufficient signatures to recall three Pico Rivera City Council members, but the head of the group said Monday they’ll refocus and try again. This time, however, members of Pico Rivera Community for Truth in Politics, or C-TIP for short, will push to recall Councilman Ron Beilke, who they claim has abused his power, said Raul Murga, C-TIP’s executive director. “He is the primary source of the problem within our city,” Murga said. “We raised the political concern in the community and it brought to light the abuse of power which Ron Beilke continues to display.” One of the two other council members targeted, Pete Ramirez, was ousted from office by voters in council elections earlier this month. The other, Councilman David Armenta, won’t be included this time because at he “saw the error of his ways,” said Murga. His group needed to collect and submit more than 15,000 signatures from registered voters by a deadline of Friday. Murga declined to say how far short of the required number the group fell. But he blamed the campaign’s failure on bad weather and the fact that many voters were out of town during the recent holidays. For more, pick up tomorrow’s Whittier Daily News.
0Shares0000Alexandre Lacazette’s superb strike put Arsenal on course for victory against Everton© AFP Adrian DENNISLONDON, United Kingdom, Sep 23 – Alexandre Lacazette fired Arsenal to a fourth successive Premier League win as the French forward’s superb strike inspired a hard-fought 2-0 success against Everton on Sunday.Unai Emery’s side rode their luck in the first half at the Emirates Stadium as Everton wasted a host of chances to punish a sloppy opening from the Gunners. But Lacazette ensured that lethargic spell wouldn’t prove costly when he smashed a sublime opener in the second half.Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang doubled Arsenal’s lead moments later when the Gabon forward was allowed to slot home despite being clearly offside.That controversial effort shattered Everton’s resolve as Arsenal celebrated a flattering victory that lifted them to sixth place in the Premier League.The north Londoners have now won their last five games in all competitions, yet, not for the first time, this was a far from convincing display.A first clean sheet of the Emery era was a welcome sight for the Arsenal manager, but he will know there is still plenty of room for improvement in all areas.Everton, without a win in their last 25 visits to Arsenal, could consider themselves unlucky, but their first half profligacy proved decisive.Marco Silva’s team have lost their last two matches and have won only one of their six league games this season.After a laboured start from Arsenal, they finally pieced together an incisive raid when Hector Bellerin’s cross found Aubameyang at the far post.Aubameyang scuffed the ball back to Nacho Monreal and the Arsenal defender saw his strike pushed away by Everton keeper Jordan Pickford.If that move show-cased the best of the attack-minded Bellerin, Everton’s next chance underlined the Spaniard’s defensive frailties.A long pass into Richarlison should have been easy for Bellerin to subdue, but he allowed the Brazilian forward to turn away from him far too easily, and it took a good save from Petr Cech to spare his team-mate’s blushes.Richarlison, back after serving a three-match ban, was a constant menace to the ponderous Arsenal defence and he went close again with a low curling effort from the edge of the area.There were plenty of empty seats around the Emirates and, with Arsenal struggling to find any rhythm, those who had shown up were growing restless by the time Lucas Digne’s free-kick was tipped over by Cech.– Majestic –Theo Walcott scored 56 times at the Emirates during his 12 years with Arsenal and the Everton winger, making his second return to his old club, almost added to that total just before half-time.Sprinting onto Gylfi Sigurdsson’s pass, Walcott had a clear sight of goal but shot straight at Cech in a familiar sight to Arsenal fans who endured the winger’s erratic displays for so long.Arsenal lost Greek defender Sokratis to injury, leaving the Gunners even more vulnerable to Richarlison, who immediately seized on Sigurdsson’s pass and unleashed a powerful drive that forced Cech to save.But, having escaped without punishment for their tepid first half, Arsenal seized the lead in the 56th minute.Lucas Torreira stole possession in midfield and quickly recycled the ball to Aaron Ramsey, whose pass found Lacazette in space on the left side of the area.Lacazette had been anonymous until that point but, taking a touch to size up his options, the French forward guided a majestic curling shot into the top corner for his second goal of the season.If that was tough on Everton, there was worse to come for Marco Silva’s side three minutes later as Arsenal scored a dubious second to seal the points.Mesut Ozil surged away down the right flank and when the Arsenal midfielder’s pass reached Ramsey, he flicked the ball to the offside Aubameyang.The linesman’s flag stayed down and Aubameyang did the rest, planting a cool finish past Pickford for his fourth goal of the season.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)
Tissue taken from a body washed up on a Co Donegal beach is to be analysed in an effort to unlock a 28 year mystery.It follows the opening of an inquest today to discover if the body is that of Noel McGlynn of Ballaghderg, Letterkenny.Mr McGlynn, 26, went missing on June 17, 1983 and was never seen again. Just nine days later, on June 26, a body was found on a beach in Dunfanaghy.The body was buried in an unmarked grave at the local Holycross Graveyard.Now the brother of the missing man believes it was his body which was washed up and buried in the unmarked grave.Yesterday’s inquest heard from a number of witnesses connected with the case.William Sheridan, a member of Sheephaven Sub Aqua Diving Club, recalled how he was alerted to a body which had been washed up near Horn Head on June 26th, 1983.He revealed how a member of the public had alerted them when they were diving and they managed to remove the body from rocks before the tide washed it back to sea.James McGlynn said he was convinced the body is that of his brother whom he last seen at the family home having tea and then tidying his room.He recalled how his brother had been admitted to St.Conal’s Psychiatric Hospital in Letterkenny a short time earlier and was suffering from depression.“I am not completely sure it is him but I am 90% sure it is him because of the timeframe,” he said.Mr McGlynn was shown pictures of his late brother and of the unidentified body.Pathologist David Barry revealed how he carried out a post mortem on the unidentified body the day after it was washed up.He said there was no sign of a violent death but there was no way of identifying a cause of death.He put the age of the body as between 40 and 50 years, of medium build and was balding.Although this did not completely tally with Mr.McGynn’s appearance, Dr Barry said he could not rule out that it was not him.Coroner John Cannon said he was reluctant to order an exhumation of the unidentified body.However he said he was satisfied that tissue samples taken from the unidentified body could be matched with saliva samples taken from Jim McGlynn by Gardai and solve the mystery.He adjourned the case until January 17th next.EndsTISSUE TAKEN FROM DONEGAL BODY COULD UNLOCK 28 YEAR MYSTERY was last modified: October 6th, 2011 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:bodyCoroner John CannonDunfanaghyHolycross GraveyardJIm McGlynnNoel McGlynn

Only thing i like is the black shorts. Rest is terrible.— Andrea Naudi (@AndreaNaudi) November 17, 2018 2 However, considering there are thousands of artists willing to release concept kits, they were quickly dismissed.But when more and more images of the same kit began to resurface, fans began to panic at what they were seeing.Instead of the usual black and white stripes, several shirts began to appear online with just one black section and one white section in a half-and-half design by adidas. Another design seemed to show the shirt as having a pink stripe through the middle in homage to the original club colours 2 Boxing Day fixtures: All nine Premier League games live on talkSPORT Green reveals how he confronted Sarri after Chelsea’s 6-0 defeat at Man City Gerrard launches furious touchline outburst as horror tackle on Barisic sparks chaos latest The colors and design don’t suit Juventus at all imo— Hesham (@ForzaGioventu) November 17, 2018 Most Popular Football Stories tense The home kit is one of the worst in our history tbh…where are the stripes?
