CIDG-6 to probe village chief over SAP ‘anomaly’

first_imgAccording to Gamboa, “In Region 6 meron sinasabi na parang niece or nephew ng barangay captain who is not actually poorest of the poor has been included in the list of SAP beneficiaries.” ILOILO City – The Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) Region 6 will be investigating a village chief in Iloilo province over an alleged anomaly in the government’s Social Amelioration Program (SAP) cash assistance distribution. CIDG-6 chief Police Lieutenant Colonel Gervacio Balmaceda declined to identify the barangay captain but said his police provincial chief, Police Lieutenant Emanuel Tingson, will lead the probe. Balmaceda said, “We have not received formal complaints. Mag i-investigate tayo kung talagang totoo ang anomaly baka may mga misunderstanding lang sa pag-relay ng message.” Police National Police chief Police General Archie Francisco Gamboa recently tasked the CIDG to lead investigations on alleged SAP anomalies across the country. For his part, Tingson said he would wait for an endorsement from the Department of Interior and Local Government. Recently, President Rodrigo Duterte announced he would be giving P30,000 to those who could report to him confirmed irregularities in the distribution of the SAP cash assistance, and that the CIDG would be handling all the complaints./PNlast_img read more

England boosted by final warm-up victory over Ireland

first_img When Ireland scored with half an hour remaining, however, what should have been an emphatic seventh successive triumph at Twickenham became far closer until Ireland fell away in the final 10 minutes. Sam Burgess arrived from the bench for the final quarter and gave a glimpse of what he might be able to achieve with more time, almost succeeding with one offload amid two handling errors. Tom Wood was named man of the match but Robshaw could have also finished with that accolade, and it was two late penalties from replacement fly-half Owen Farrell that swept the Red Rose home. England, whose line-out and set piece were improved but still fell short of the usual standard, enter their World Cup opener against Fiji on September 18 with some momentum while accepting higher standards will be needed for the Pool A clashes with Wales and Australia. Ireland will take comfort in knowing they do not need to peak until October 11 when they play their pivotal Pool D clash with France and on this evidence their conditioning levels are below that of the hosts. They will monitor the fitness of Conor Murray carefully over the coming days after the Lion departed with concussion early in the match, his good health critical given he is one of only two scrum-halves in the 31-man squad named for England 2015. England’s start could not have been more emphatic as waves of attacks ended with Ben Youngs floating a clever pass to May who bumped off Tommy Bowe and evaded Simon Zebo to score in the left corner. The one-way traffic was temporarily interrupted when Jonathan Sexton landed a penalty on the crossbar with the ball bouncing over, but in the 14th minute England struck again when George Ford sent a cross-field kick to the right wing where there was acres of space. Press Association Watson and Zebo leapt to compete for the ball and it was the Ireland full-back who miscalculated, allowing Watson to collect and touch down. A bad start deteriorated further for the Six Nations champions when Murray’s match was ended by concussion and a forward pass from Youngs saw May denied a third try. Geoff Parling, restored to the team to stabilise the line-out after two shaky meetings with France, stole Irish possession at the set piece and England renewed their assault with the slippery Watson almost wriggling free. The pendulum swung just before half-time, however, as Ireland finally attacked with accuracy, but a gap for wing Dave Kearney was quickly filled with white shirts before Sean O’Brien knocked-on. Ireland began the second half with a flourish and it was a more finely balanced game now as Ford and Sexton exchanged penalties. May was forced into a rushed clearance from behind his own whitewash and Joe Schmidt’s men pounced from the short-range line-out, forwards peeling off around the fringes until O’Connell arrived to burrow over. England led just 15-13 but they almost responded instantly when Ford and Watson escaped the green shirts only to fall to despairing late tackles. The World Cup hosts were back in control as they searched for the match-sealing try and it appeared to have been scored with 10 minutes left only to be disallowed because of a mix-up between Tom Wood and Robshaw. Substitute Owen Farrell, who had earlier butchered an overlap, landed two penalties to put the result beyond doubt and ensure England will enter the World Cup unbeaten at Twickenham this year. England will enter the World Cup armed with a confidence-enhancing 21-13 victory over Ireland but will know they should have emerged more convincing winners over the RBS 6 Nations champions in their final warm-up game. Jonny May and Anthony Watson ran in tries inside the opening 15 minutes as the tournament hosts honoured their promise to address the shortcomings exposed during two poor performances against France. They attacked the breakdown with far greater energy and relentlessly hunted down green shirts, with captain Chris Robshaw at the heart of his pack’s pursuit in an afternoon that restored the forwards’ reputation after their humbling in Paris a fortnight ago. last_img read more

Canada Beat Russia to Reach First Davis Cup Final

first_imgCanada beat Russia 6-3 3-6 7-6 (7-5) in an epic decisive doubles rubber to reach the Davis Cup final in Madrid. The pair of Vasek Pospisil and Denis Shapovalov beat Karen Khachanov and Andrey Rublev in a tie-break as Canada reached the final for the first time.“I don’t think any of us expected that we could get this far,” Shapovalov said. “I think we just absolutely played ridiculous tennis.” Canada will face either Great Britain or Spain today.Rublev beat Pospisil 6-4 6-4 in the opening singles rubber to give Russia the lead before Shapovalov levelled with a 6-4 4-6 6-4 win over Khachanov. In the doubles, a final long backhand from Rublev sent Shapovalov and Pospisil leaping into the air and into each other’s arms.Canada captain Frank Dancevic said the nervous finale almost caused him to pass out.“When I was sitting there on match point, my heart was beating so fast, I was actually starting to black out,” he said. “I was trying to control my breathing and just telling myself to breath slowly, stay calm, we’re close to this.“It’s definitely an emotional rollercoaster, sitting on the chair. But at the day it’s an amazing feeling having your guys perform like this and put 110% on the court.”Both Canada and Russia have only used two players during the competition, with Russia relying on Khachanov and Rublev after the withdrawal through fatigue of Daniil Medvedev.Canada have benched Shapovalov’s Junior Davis Cup-winning team-mate Felix Auger-Aliassime following an ankle problem and were without Milos Raonic completely because of injury.Rublev’s singles victory over world number 150 Pospisil, who had not lost a singles match in the tournament, put the pressure on world number 15 Shapovalov.The Canadian number one rose to the challenge, fighting back from 1-4 down to win the first set. He then recovered from 0-40 to serve out the match against Khachanov.Khachanov and Rublev had beaten Serbia’s Novak Djokovic and Viktor Troicki in a dramatic doubles rubber on Friday, saving three match points, but they could not repeat that feat yesterday, with Pospisil and Shapovalov coming from 4-2 down in the tie-break and taking their second match point for victory.It was their third Davis Cup semi-final, after previous last-four defeats in 1913 and 2013.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

Syracuse’s win over Pittsburgh sets stage for Orange’s 3rd meeting with Georgetown

first_img Published on March 14, 2013 at 8:15 pm Contact Michael: mjcohe02@syr.edu | @Michael_Cohen13 NEW YORK — It had to end like this.After 30 years of breathtaking games, unforgettable players and a venue unlike any other, it’s only right that Syracuse and Georgetown — two of the fiercest rivals in college sports — will take the floor one more time.With wins over Pittsburgh and Cincinnati, respectively, Syracuse and Georgetown set the stage for a semifinal battle that will be remembered for years to come. Two of the programs that built the Big East, a league that will finally crumble with the conclusion of this week’s tournament, lock horns at 7 p.m. Friday in Madison Square Garden.“It’s a great way for this league to go out,” Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim said.For Syracuse, Friday presents not only an opportunity to string together three straight wins for the first time since January, but it also provides a shot at revenge after two disappointing losses to the Hoyas earlier this season.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textBefore the largest on-campus crowd in the history of college basketball, Georgetown stole the show in a late-February meeting that thrust the Hoyas into the conversation for a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament. Riding Otto Porter’s brilliance — he finished with 33 points — Georgetown left the Carrier Dome for the final time with a victory, just as it left Manley Field House three decades earlier.“When we played them in Syracuse, it was a good game for most of it,” Boeheim said. “We just didn’t play well in either game. They’re too good. If you don’t play well, they’re going to beat you.”And two weeks later, the Orange played even worse. The Hoyas embarrassed Syracuse with a 61-39 victory that was close for just a handful of minutes and ended the regular-season rivalry with a definitive knockout punch.It’s left a bitter taste in the mouths of the Syracuse players, who all discussed the importance of avenging the 22-point blowout Friday night.“I want it a lot,” Syracuse guard Brandon Triche said. “Them beating us twice, not too many teams have done that. I remember beating them twice, and the third time they beat us. That was in the Big East tournament. We’re trying to pretty much return the favor.”Triche’s backcourt partner, Michael Carter-Williams, said the team is flying high with confidence following its wins in the last two days. He admitted that the team got a bit discouraged after a stretch in which it lost four out of five games, but impressive wins over Seton Hall and Pittsburgh have resuscitated the swagger.For the first time in weeks, the locker room is buzzing. Gone are the lowly moments of a player talking quietly at his locker, and in its place are smiles and laughter of a team that appears to be peaking at exactly the right time.A win over Georgetown on Friday would thrust Syracuse back to the cusp of a top-10 ranking. And a win over Georgetown will always be a win over Georgetown.“They beat us up pretty bad,” Carter-Williams said. “We’re excited for it, just to get some redemption. It’s something we want and something we’re looking forward to. It’s just an old school Georgetown-Syracuse matchup in the Big East.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Josh Shaw scandal is all too familiar

first_imgHere’s what we know about the Josh Shaw situation: At some point between USC’s annual Salute to Troy dinner on Saturday and the Trojans’ Monday morning practice, the senior defensive back suffered two high ankle sprains. Shaw originally claimed that his injury was the result of rescuing his drowning nephew, a story that garnered him a considerable amount of praise.We also know that Shaw’s story is a complete fabrication. He admitted Wednesday that he made up the entire sequence of events and has since been suspended from the team indefinitely. Perhaps tellingly, Shaw even retained a high-profile defense attorney.A police report has surfaced from Saturday night that claims a man was seen jumping from a third-story balcony at an apartment near campus during an attempted break-in. Josh Shaw is named in the report as the boyfriend of an apartment resident, not as a suspect.That’s it. That’s all we know. We do not know how Shaw sustained his injuries, or why he lied to the world. We do not know if he committed or was involved in a crime.USC, the police, Steve Sarkisian and most of the country remain in what Sarkisian called a “holding pattern,” waiting for evidence on that front. But the big story is out there — Josh Shaw lied, and now it’s up to us to pick up the pieces.And as much as we all want to talk Trojan football, the media has embraced this “holding pattern” as well. So even though our epic rematch with Fresno State looms on Saturday, I still have to talk about Josh Shaw.Here’s the thing that bothers me — and forgive me for going out on a limb here — but something about this situation just doesn’t feel right. If Shaw injured himself in a manner that he would wish to hide from his coaches and university, or even, God forbid, in the course of a criminal act, why invent a story that puts you in the national spotlight? It just doesn’t make sense.It would hardly have been a blurb on ESPN’s radar if Shaw injured himself while going for a post-practice run, or helping a teammate move. Instead, he was named one of SportsCenter’s three stars of the night just hours before the questions about his injury began.Maybe what feels the worst about the Shaw story is how eerily familiar it seems.I still remember exactly where I was when the news of former Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te’o’s fictional girlfriend broke — and I’m not exactly a big Fighting Irish fan. Now it seems as if the two stories will be permanently linked in the long history of college football scandals.We all remember the tragedy surrounding Te’o as he marched his way through a debateably Heisman-esque 2012 season. In a span of six hours, his grandmother and “girlfriend” passed away, leading to unparalleled media coverage of the rest of Notre Dame’s season.Now even if you believe — which I, politely, don’t — that Te’o was indeed an unknowing victim of an internet hoax, it’s important to remember that he admitted to never meeting the woman. At least by the dawn of the 2012 season, it’s fair to say he knew something was up. And yet he, and those closest to him, fabricated a story that turned him into a short-lived national hero. Just two years later Josh Shaw has done the same thing.The question no one can figure out, though, is why. Why would Manti turn himself into a media sensation and not quietly end the hoax before the season? Why would Josh Shaw, if not tell the truth, at least not fabricate a cleaner story?These guys had to know that even with a little digging their stories would start to show holes. A quick Google search cast doubt on Lennay Kekua’s existence. Similarly, the timeline of Shaw’s incident never quite added up. If Shaw left USC between 9 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. as reported, conservative estimates put him in Palmdale by 10:30 p.m. at the earliest. It’s certainly not impossible to believe that a 7-year-old child who could not swim was in the pool at such a late hour by himself, but it’s somewhat unlikely.This was apparently a qualm shared by USC Athletic Department officials, one of whom anonymously told Rivals.com that the school had serious doubts regarding Shaw’s story, and advised him against sharing it with the media. Still, Shaw went ahead and spread his lie to anyone who would listen.And people did listen, especially the sports media. He had to have known they would. He had to have known someone might investigate his story further. And he had to have known that when even the smallest crack showed in his story that the media would jump all over it. Sure, it’s sad that the impact of social media speculation permanently soiled Shaw’s reputation before anyone actually knew the truth. But that blame still has to fall on Shaw, who failed to learn anything from the Te’o debacle.Maybe we’ll never know what inspired Josh Shaw to come up with such an outrageous lie. At this point it could be anything from simply a poorly-thought-out cover-up to a not-so-slick grab at fame. As much as I’d love to know what was going through the 22-year-old’s head, it really doesn’t matter. Josh Shaw screwed up — plain and simple. And all he needed to do to avoid it was look back at history. Will Hanley is a junior majoring in political science and communication. He is also the sports editor of the Daily Trojan.
