But I felt like coach is right, we kind of fell flat in the second half,” Wright said. “It’s one of those things when you came up with a 107-point win and you’re up by 40 at halftime, it’s a challenge to stay motivated and keep the foot on the gas.”“I feel like we came out very sluggish. We can’t have afford to have that. We have to learn how to have killer instinct and put our foot down right from the get-go, no holding back, and don’t give them a chance,” he said. “We got the win and move on to the next team. It’s gonna be a long journey so we have to move on.”Gilas Pilipinas takes on Malaysia next on Sunday.ADVERTISEMENT “Everyone on this team is a go-to-guy. Everybody has egos, but everyone has to play selfless when you play for the country. It’s way bigger than individual stats and it’s way bigger than personal accolades.

Hamilton Green has a record of being difficult to work with

first_imgDear Editor,Not a single Guyanese should be in the least bit surprised that a competent, qualified and decent officer such as Chief Executive Officer of the Central Housing and Planning Authority Myrna Pitt has resigned from her post.Had she not done so then she would have spoiled the long and odious record of the Chairman of the CH&PA Board Hamilton Green.If one were to look back at the various ministries he headed, one would see the difficulties experienced by the permanent secretaries, departmental heads and other technical staff who were all certified, capable and experienced.But one does not have to look so far back, one just has to look at the last twenty one years that he spent as Chairman of the Georgetown Municipality, to see the long list of casualties including town clerks, city engineers, city treasurers, etc.Note however, that his getting rid of all of these senior staffers did not make things any better at City Hall, in fact it made things far worse, with the Council being at its apex in corruption and irregularities when he finally left a few months ago.It should also be noted that most of the victims were women.How could the government give this cruel octogenarian more opportunities to destroy the lives of honest public servants who do not agree to dance to the tune that he is playing?Sincerely,Mark Roopanlast_img read more

‘Complete madness!’ – Wenger critical of transfer market after £100m Pogba bid

first_img Arsene Wenger 1 Arsene Wenger believes Paul Pogba’s proposed £100million move to Manchester United represents the “complete madness” of the modern transfer market.France midfielder Pogba is reportedly set to join United for a nine-figure sum and Arsenal manager Wenger, who is currently in Los Angeles with the Gunners ahead of a pre-season friendly meeting with Chivas, suggested he would not pay over the odds for any player.Quoted in Tuttosport, he said: “It’s complete madness when measured against real life, but we live in a world in which everything that happens is geared towards moving money around.“It’s complete madness – but it seems that if you can afford to do it, you can justify it. Football has become a global competition and that is why clubs are chucking these kinds of sums around.“Does it make sense because the player can deliver a return on that investment? I don’t think anyone can make that call.“Since I’ve been in the game I’ve always thought there would be a limit to how much clubs could spend on a player but it looks like I’ve been proved wrong.“Maybe in a few years’ time we’ll be talking about fees of 200 or 300million…”last_img read more

Department store joy this season?

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESurfer attacked by shark near Channel Islands calls rescue a ‘Christmas miracle’Hugo Rodriguez, 24, of Pacoima said he likes department stores because of the wide selection. “They have it, from shoes to jewelry,” Rodriguez said while shopping at the Northridge Fashion Center. Rodriguez also likes department stores’ prices. “They have good stuff for cheaper,” he said. Only 25 percent of shoppers said they would buy items from catalogs, which are fighting to gain back the 37 percent of shoppers who used them in 2002. Discounters will attract 70 percent of shoppers this holiday season – a shade more than department stores – but that is down from 77 percent four years ago. More Christmas shoppers will toss aside their catalogs this year and head to department stores for a hands-on, holiday retail experience, according to a survey released Monday. “There seems to be a renewed interest in shopping at department stores,” said Scott Krugman, spokesman at the National Retail Federation. All-in-one retailers like Macy’s, Sears, and Bloomingdale’s are expected to gain shoppers this season while discounters and catalogs lose them. Some 62 percent of shoppers will head to the department store to fulfill their holiday shopping list, up from 53 percent in 2002, according to a survey by the federation. And the trend could last: Department stores are especially appealing to consumers between the ages of 18 and 25. Four out of five shoppers in this age group said they would shop at department stores during the holidays, according to the federation survey. If department stores can mold these buyers into loyal customers, their numbers will blossom, according to retail expert Kurt Barnard. “Department stores were dowdy and boring, to put it politely,” Barnard said. “That is in the process of changing and the change is not complete. It has a long way to go.” Elizabeth Freire doesn’t plan to step inside a department store for any of her holiday gifts. She will get everything on her list from outlets. “They are cheaper than regular stores,” said Freire, 25, of Granada Hills, as her three children played in the mall. Department stores offer a smattering of the gifts people want to receive: clothes, accessories, and gift cards. Books, tech toys, DVDs, and video games also top the list of what people want to find under the tree. Buying everything on the average consumer’s list will cost $791, according to the federation. Plus, more than half of shoppers plan to buy nongift items as they go on sale during the holidays, adding an additional $99 to their tab. Holiday sales are expected to increase a modest 5 percent this year, according to the federation. It’s still too early to tell if dropping gas prices will boost holiday spending, Krugman said. “It depends on where they are in November,” he said. “But if it’s any indication this could provide a nice little boost for the holidays.” julia.scott@dailynews.com (818) 713-3735 POPULAR PLACES TO SHOP Where do you plan to purchase holiday items this year? Discount store: 70% Department store: 62% Grocery store/supermarket: 49% Specialty store: 48% Online: 47% Catalog: 25% The percentages add up to more than 100% because those polled could select multiple answers.
