TNT coach Racela says Ginebra rookie Ferrer best player of Game 4

first_imgPhoto by Tristan Tamayo/ INQUIRER.netKevin Ferrer may not have had the biggest shots of the game, but for coach Nash Racela, the Ginebra rookie made the biggest impact in Game 4 after frustrating TNT import Glen Rice Jr. early in the game.“Kevin Ferrer was the best player of the game,” Racela told reporters after Ginebra ousted TNT in the 2017 PBA Governors’ Cup semifinals on Sunday.ADVERTISEMENT Typhoon Kammuri accelerates, gains strength en route to PH TNT shot 15-of-16 from the charity stripe and went 30-of-62 from the two-point area, compared to Ginebra’s 23-of-33 free throw shooting and 28-of-47 clip from two. The KaTropa were also whistled for 32 fouls, against 20 for the Gin Kings. Both teams were close to even from threes, with TNT hoisting 10-of-37 and Ginebra throwing 12-of-32.That affair ended the KaTropa’s season, which saw them reach the semifinals in all three conferences and the Finals once.It wasn’t a disappointing campaign to say the least for TNT, but for Racela, there’s only one clear thing going forward: that San Miguel teams are really the hurdle that TNT needs to get through if it wants to win the championship.“I’m happy that for three conferences, we were able to advance to the playoffs. But it just so happened that in all the three conferences, we played a San Miguel team, and you know how tough it is to play a San Miguel team, so it’s really hard. But if you want to win a championship, we really have to get past a San Miguel team,” he said.“I think we need to have more players who are more aggressive. Maybe that will help us. So now, if we become more aggressive, then we force the referees to call more fouls. That’s the only thing I could think of right now,” he said. “If you study the whole series, it all boils down to who gets more free throws, who get fouled a lot. That’s something we’re trying to study. Maybe we could improve on that aspect.”ADVERTISEMENT Frontrow holds fun run to raise funds for young cancer patients  Read Next MOST READ LATEST STORIES View comments LOOK: Loisa Andalio, Ronnie Alonte unwind in Amanpulo for 3rd anniversary Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. center_img Rice shoved Ferrer to the floor and threw the ball at him that led to his early ejection at the 1:41 mark of the first quarter.The KaTropa had no choice but to play all-Filipino from that point forward, fighting valiantly but eventually falling to the Gin Kings, 115-105.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSSEA Games: Philippines picks up 1st win in men’s water poloSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutFrustrated with how TNT’s season came to an end, Racela struggled to explain what went wrong for his team.“I just want to congratulate Ginebra for being the more aggressive team tonight,” he slyly said. “They got a lot of free throws again, so it’s because they were more aggressive than us despite taking 15 less two-point field goals.

MI retain Tendulkar, Harbhajan, Pollard and Malinga

first_imgMumbai Indians have informed the BCCI-owned Indian Premier League that they were retaining four players Sachin Tendulkar, Harbhajan Singh, West Indian Kieron Pollard and Sri Lanka’s Lasith Malinga for the next two seasons. “Mumbai Indians have confirmed that we are retaining two players — Sachin Tendulkar and Harbhajan Singh — among Indians and two foreign players — Kieron Pollard and Lasith Malinga,” a MI spokesperson told PTI today. The MI official also claimed that the franchisees have the option of retaining more than one foreigner in their squad as per the decision of the IPL governing council on retention of players. A media release issued by the BCCI over player retention after the meeting of the IPL GC on September 5 stated: “Up to including four players per franchise may be signed for retention of which only up to three shall be Indian players. The Player must have been included in the franchise’s registered squad for the 2010 season. “The franchise and player must mutually agree to be retained and the player fee to be paid by the franchise to the player for the 2011 and 2012 Seasons.” As a result of MI’s decision to retain all four players as permitted, the franchise will have only USD 4.5 million at their disposal for buying the remaining members for 2011 and 2012 at next month’s player auction as its salary cap has been halved. The player contract will be for a period of two years plus one year right of extension by franchise, as per the decision of the IPL’s governing council. advertisementlast_img read more

Ohio State womens lacrosse heads to Rutgers after first loss since February

OSU senior attacker Cian Dabrowski (14) fires a shot in a game against Penn State on April 9. OSU won, 16-13. Credit: Courtesy of OSUA short memory often one of the keys to any successful athlete. The No. 9 Ohio state women’s lacrosse team will have to put that skill to the test as it regroups from a blowout loss and travels to Rutgers for a Thursday evening matchup.The first setback OSU (11-2, 2-1) faced in 55 days was a 15-5 loss at No. 1 Maryland last weekend which ended its nine-game winning streak. If they’re able to bounce back with a win over Rutgers (3-11, 0-3), the Buckeyes would end being no worse than the No. 2 seed in the 2016 Big Ten tournament. Rutgers is coming off a 20-9 loss to Northwestern. The Buckeyes are 3-1 all-time against the Scarlet Knights, as they beat Rutgers 17-7 in the 2015 Big Ten tournament quarterfinals, as well as twice in conference play.A closer look at OSUOSU has decorated players all over the field that play a huge role in the team’s success.Sophomore attacker Molly Wood ranks 13th in the country with 4.7 draws per game and is on track to set an OSU single-season record. Wood is also second on the team with 30 goals, and is one of only two Buckeyes to score a goal in every game this season.Senior attackers Cian Dabrowski and Rainey Hodgson rank in the top five in the Big Ten in almost every offensive category. Dabrowski leads OSU and ranks second in the Big Ten with three goals per game and leads with 4.1 points per match. Hodgson ranks second in the Big Ten with 3.8 points per game and is first with 1.9 assists per contest.Defensively, senior goalkeeper Katie Frederick is 11-2 as a first-year starter. Frederick is third in the conference with 6.46 saves per game.As a team, OSU ranks second in the Big Ten in shot percentage and goals against, and sits third for goals, assists, draw controls and saves.Game time against the Scarlet Knights is scheduled for 7 p.m. on Thursday in Piscataway, New Jersey.Up nextThe Buckeyes are set to return home and get back on the field quickly when they welcome No. 6 Notre Dame to Ohio Stadium at 3 p.m. on Saturday. read more

North Dakota sweeps OSU in 2 physical matchups

The No. 8 North Dakota women’s hockey team swept Ohio State this weekend, winning two physical games by a goal each. OSU coach Jackie Barto sees these close losses as a positive, knowing her team is just one step away from getting over the top. “I thought we competed hard and played six good periods this weekend,” Barto said. The Buckeyes (14-14-2, 8-14-2-2 WCHA) have lost three games to the Fighting Sioux (17-8-3, 15-7-2-0 WCHA) by one goal this season, losing Friday, 4-3, in overtime and Saturday, 3-2. “We need to take that step and get over that last hurdle in these games,” Barto said. “Stay positive, keep working and keep getting after it.” On Saturday the Buckeyes led North Dakota in shots, 32-31, but failed to cash in on five power-play opportunities. “The power play never really got settled,” Barto said. “It’s a combination of winning face-offs, winning battles, outnumbering the puck, having good retrieval skills and then having the poise to set your power play up under pressure.” The referees had to break up a number of skirmishes over the weekend after a few big hits and several rushes on goal left players down on the ice. “We knew we were in a war and we had to battle,” Barto said. “North Dakota’s a physical team and the refs let them play.” Junior forward Laura McIntosh continued to shine, adding two more points to her career assists record and cashing in a goal this weekend. With the Buckeyes down, 1-0, on Saturday, McIntosh led a three-on-one breakaway that featured a nifty pass across the crease to junior defenseman Kelly Wild, who passed it back across the crease where sophomore forward Paige Semenza buried the puck in the net to tie the game. “When everyone gets involved it’s good for the team,” McIntosh said. “I think this weekend we played really well and a lot of people were involved.” The Buckeyes ran out of time in both games, though, as North Dakota scored with seconds left in overtime Friday night, and the Buckeyes failed to score in the third period Saturday. “Getting down to the end of the season we’re just gonna have to keep working hard,” McIntosh said. “Other teams know that we work hard, so if we keep doing that and battling through we’ll be good the rest of the way.” The Buckeyes host Minnesota Duluth (16-7-3, 14-7-3 WCHA) at 7 p.m. Friday and 4 p.m. Saturday at the OSU Ice Rink. “We need to keep our heads up,” senior defenseman Shannon Reilly said. “We played two awesome games this weekend and we didn’t get the bounces we wanted. I think that we can carry how hard everyone worked and gave 110 percent on every shift into next weekend and then the following weekend to come.” read more

Buckeyes earn No 4 seed in NCAA Tournament prepare to play UCF

After struggling through the heart of its season, the Ohio State women’s basketball team finished strong, winning its final nine games and earning a No. 4 seed in the NCAA Tournament. The Buckeyes (22-9, 10-6 Big Ten) are playing their first game of the tournament in Columbus against the University of Central Florida, the No. 13 seed in the Dayton region.

Womens Basketball No 13 Ohio State romps Rutgers 9068

Ohio State redshirt junior guard Sierra Calhoun drives down the baseline in the third quarter of the Buckeyes’ win against Rutgers on Feb. 8 at the Schottenstein Center. Credit: Colin Hass-Hill | Sports EditorRutgers stayed within striking distance of the No. 13 Ohio State women’s basketball team for the majority of the first quarter and trailed by just one point when Buckeye head coach Kevin McGuff called a timeout with two minutes remaining. Ohio State responded from that timeout with a 35-15 run to cruise into halftime with what proved to be an insurmountable 51-30 lead.The Buckeyes rode their early lead to a 90-68 victory against the Scarlet Knights Thursday night at the Schottenstein Center.During the first-half run, Ohio State (20-5, 9-3 Big Ten) hit six 3-pointers. The Buckeyes went 11-for-22 from beyond the arc and hit 56 percent of their shots. They held Rutgers (18-8, 6-6 Big Ten) to just 39 percent shooting. Rutgers went 4-of-19 from 3.“We started getting some stops and then the stops were leading to transition basketball,” Ohio State head coach Kevin McGuff said. “I thought that’s what really allowed us to kind of get some separation in the game.”Senior guard Kelsey Mitchell had a team-high 28 points on 10-of-13 shooting. She hit 5-of-6 triples. Five other Buckeyes scored in double-figures, including redshirt junior forward Stephanie Mavunga, who dropped 12 points and corralled a game-high 13 rebounds. Redshirt junior guard Sierra Calhoun hit 3-of-5 3s and scored 17 points.Ohio State entered the game ranked first in the Big Ten in turnover ratio, but Rutgers followed closely behind, ranking second in the conference. The Scarlet Knights proved to be no match in terms of ball control for the majority of the first half, however. The Buckeyes held a 14-12 turnover advantage and scored 25 points off turnovers.“People have different philosophies, but we’re really aggressive when we turn somebody over,” McGuff said. “I thought our kids made good decisions, too, in transition about shot selection. Sometimes you can get going kind of fast and take bad shots, but I didn’t think we did that tonight.”Ohio State’s win against Rutgers was its fourth victory in a row and the fourth game it held its opponents to 68 points or fewer. This is the lowest opponents have scored in a four-game stretch since McGuff was hired five seasons ago. The win streak comes following a three-game losing streak in which the Buckeyes gave up 84 points to Michigan, 99 points to Maryland and 103 points to Iowa.“I personally think the losing streak that we were on motivated us to do better and separate ourselves from our opponents,” redshirt senior guard Linnae Harper said. “We just looked back, watched some film and tried to get better from those games. It’s been showing for the last four games.”The Buckeyes assisted on 20 of their made shots. Though senior guard Asia Doss struggled with her shot (1-for-7), she led the game with seven assists. Senior guard Tyler Scaife, the only Scarlet Knight who averaged more than seven points per game entering the contest, led Rutgers with 27 points. But she hit just 12-of-27 shots from the field. Rutgers held a hefty 40-32 rebound edge. The Scarlet Knights nearly had as many offensive rebounds (24) as the Buckeyes had defensive rebounds (21). This led to the visiting team scoring 21 second-chance points. McGuff said the Buckeyes struggled to get a body on Rutgers’ rebounders and that his team played more zone than usual, which was effective when defending, but not when rebounding.With redshirt junior forward Makayla Waterman day-to-day and sitting out with a neck injury Wednesday’s game, Ohio State added sophomore guard Jensen Caretti to its eight-person rotation. She scored two points in 14 minutes.The Buckeyes will be back in action at 2 p.m. Sunday when they take on South Florida in an unusual non-conference road game late in the season. read more

Big blow for Indians Saudi Arabia plans to ban foreigners from hospitality

first_imgRepresentative ImageReutersSaudi Arabia is planning to ban the recruitment of foreigners in hospitality jobs in the country, as per reports. In the latest development, the Labour Ministry has instructed employers to restrict hospitality jobs for Saudi nationals by the end of the year.The decision will apply to resorts, hotels rated three stars or higher, and hotel apartments rated four stars or higher, reported Bloomberg.Jobs to be reserved for Saudis include front desk jobs as well as management-level positions.  The job of a restaurant host and health club supervisor will also be restricted for Saudi citizens.  Foreigners can be employed as drivers, doormen and porters, said a ministry statement.The country has pushed for “Saudization” policies after unemployment rates increased to 13 percent last year. Foreigners dominate its private sector jobs, having taken up all but few blue-collar and service jobs.Earlier this year, the Saudi Crown Prince Sheikh Mohammed bin Salman, announced investment worth $450 billion to reshape the Saudi economy and generate more than 1.5 million jobs in mining, industry, logistics and energy.While the move is seen as a push for encouraging job creation in a country that heavily relies on cheap labour, businesses have complained that the new policies have increased the cost of labour and lowered productivity.Indian labourMore than 41 lakh Indians reside in Saudi Arabia according to 2017 data, making them the largest expat group in the country.In 2017, a large number of Indians sent back their families to the native country due to the imposition of a monthly dependent fee for expats. The move was initiated by Saudi officials in order to generate revenue from expats working in the country. In Gulf countries, Indian workers are often employed on a contentious contractual basis. Over the years, increasing incidents of Indian workers being stranded due to the contractor’s refusal to let the labours leave the country have been reported.

first_imgBy Kevin McGill, The Associated PressThe sixth-grader who tearfully left a New Orleans area Catholic school after she was told her hair extensions violated its policy might soon return to classes there, her attorney and school officials said Aug. 24.Video of Faith Fennidy leaving Christ the King school with family members this week spread quickly on the Internet, sparking angry online comments and charges that the school’s hair policy discriminated against Black students.Faith Fennidy, center, walks with her parents Montrelle Fennidy, left, and Steven Fennidy, Sr. to a press conference outside the offices of their attorney James Williams Friday, Aug. 24, 2018 in Metairie, La. An attorney says Faith Fennidy, the sixth-grader who tearfully left a New Orleans area Catholic school after she was told her hair extensions violated its policy might soon return to classes there. (Matthew Hinton/The Advocate via AP)Attorney James Williams won a restraining order Aug. 23 on behalf of Faith and another student. It temporarily blocks the school from enforcing the policy.Williams said Friday, during a news conference with Faith, her parents and her brother, that he will discuss the matter Monday with officials of the elementary school and the Archdiocese of New Orleans.Archdiocese school officials issued a statement later, saying they had sought the upcoming meeting and that their goal is to welcome the girls back to class “as soon as possible.”“We’d like to take this opportunity to announce that the Office of Catholic Schools is reconvening the Superintendent’s Advisory Council to address school policies, particularly those that might affect cultural differences in school communities, as well as other topics such as racial harmony, social justice and urban Catholic education,” the statement said.Steven Fennidy Jr. posted the Facebook video of Faith, her braids pulled back and hanging just below the neckline, that won her recognition and support from, among others, social activist Shaun King on Twitter and rapper T.I. on Instagram.“Faith has received overwhelming support from thousands of people all over the world — ranging from celebrities to children her age living in different cultures,” he said Aug. 24, reading a prepared statement the brief news conference outside a suburban New Orleans office building.On Aug. 21, his Facebook post explained that there were practical reasons for Faith’s use of extensions. “Extensions make the hair easier to maintain. It allows my sister to have access to the swimming pool without having to get her hair re-done every night,” his post said.School officials had said they had communicated the extensions policy to parents over the summer and that school leaders had worked with parents to help ensure compliance.last_img read more

Samsung to issue updates in response to printer alert

Hewlett-Packard offers fix for printers susceptible to remote hacks Nonetheless, it added, any customers concerned about the vulnerability can disable SNMPv1.2 or use the secure SNMPv3 mode until the firmware updates are made.Samsung’s SNMP advice, however, appeared to generate more questions than answers, motivating at least one news service, CNET, to contact Samsung in order to clarify the issue.That is because the U.S. Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT) Vulnerability Note (VU#281284), issued first on November 26 and then revised on Wednesday said that a hardcoded Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) full read-write community string remains active even when SNMP is disabled in the printer management utility. The account in the firmware will still allow access to the device even if management functions are disabled in the printer’s software utility.The CERT warning spoke about a Samsung printer firmware backdoor administrator account. This is a hardcoded account in the printers that could allow a remote attacker to take control of an affected device. The note pertained to Samsung printers as well as some Dell printers manufactured by Samsung. “A remote, unauthenticated attacker could access an affected device with administrative privileges,” US-CERT said. “Secondary impacts include: the ability to make changes to the device configuration, access to sensitive information (e.g., device and network information, credentials, and information passed to the printer), and the ability to leverage further attacks through arbitrary code execution.”CERT then referenced that the “reporter has stated that blocking the custom SNMP trap port of 1118/udp will help mitigate the risks.”Samsung and Dell have stated that any models released after October 31 if this year are not affected by this vulnerability. The CERT note was a result of findings by Neil Smith, a security researcher, who then contacted US-CERT on November 26, telling them that Samsung printer firmware contains a hardcoded backdoor administrator account that could allow remote network access exploitation and device control. Citation: Samsung to issue updates in response to printer alert (2012, November 29) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2012-11-samsung-issue-response-printer.htmlcenter_img More information: www.kb.cert.org/vuls/id/281284 (Phys.org)—Samsung has issued a response to CERT’s vulnerability advisory about Samsung networked printers but the response may have left printer owners wondering what to do next. Samsung said that it is aware of and has resolved the security issue affecting Samsung network printers and multifunction devices. “The issue affects devices only when SNMP is enabled, and is resolved by disabling SNMP.” The company offered the reminder that it takes all matters of security seriously. They said that were they not aware of any customers affected by this vulnerability. Samsung said that it intends to release updated firmware for all current models by November 30, and all other models will receive an update by the end of the year. © 2012 Phys.orglast_img read more
