In fact, he has titles across different leagues and international tournaments, yet his newest one is “probably” his favorite.When Ateneo topped the UAAP Season 80 men’s basketball tournament after overthrowing La Salle, 88-86, in Game 3 of the Finals, Baldwin knew he reached a milestone that would be forever in his memory.ADVERTISEMENT Kiss-and-tell matinee idol’s conquests: True stories or tall tales?

Every one of these guys had a hand on this championship and every one deserves the applause.” ADVERTISEMENT “It was a great season, I’ve had a bunch of them, and this one goes down as one of the best and probably the best,” said Baldwin Saturday before the Blue Eagles’ bonfire celebration at Ateneo.“We worked together on being basketball players, a better coaching staff, we studied together, and we learned together.” FEATURED STORIESSPORTSRedemption is sweet for Ginebra, Scottie ThompsonSPORTSMayweather beats Pacquiao, Canelo for ‘Fighter of the Decade’SPORTSBrian Heruela arrival bolsters Phoenix backcourt, defenseAteneo’s Season 80 title was the first for Baldwin, a three-time champion in Australia’s National Basketball League, in the Philippine collegiate scene.The 59-year-old Baldwin also won a gold medal with New Zealand in the Fiba Oceania Championship and another one with Lebanon in the Fiba Asia Stankovic Cup.  Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award Coco’s house rules on ‘Probinsyano’ setcenter_img View comments Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

Category: rkfzcrmkaynujbla ‘Toughest trade’: “Michael Murphy wouldn’t interfere with the league” says Donegal boss

first_imgRORY GALLAGHER says he has dismissed any fears that Michael Murphy’s participation in The Toughest Trade could impinge on preparations for the Allianz League.Murphy will go to Frence rugby side Clermont Auvergne at the end of January to spend a week with the Top 14 side in Clermont-Ferrand.The RTÉ show, in association with AIB, sees GAA players move to try their hand at a professional sport with a sportsman from the other trade dabbling in GAA. Last night, Welsh rugby legend Shane Williams scored four points for Murphy’s club, Glenswilly, in a game against St Mary’s, Convoy.It was recently revealed that Mayo joint managers Pat Holmes and Noel Connelly didn’t want Aidan O’Shea taking part in the show, but he did following their departures.Gallagher has no qualms with Murphy – who is a keen rugby enthusiast – having a go at the oval ball game.“Michael Murphy wouldn’t interfere with the league,” Gallagher told a press conference in Ballybofey this week. “The Toughest Trade wouldn’t be happening if it interfered with the league, and to be fair it didn’t interfere with Mayo’s league, it was in the three-week gap last year.“He’s going over to experience Clermont Auvernge, a professional outfit and it is an exciting opportunity for him.“Ironically enough, Michael came to me about it a day or two after it all blew up in Mayo about it.“He said: ‘I’m after getting a call about The Toughest Trade’.“I asked if it was something he really wanted to do. He said yes.” ‘Toughest trade’: “Michael Murphy wouldn’t interfere with the league” says Donegal boss was last modified: January 13th, 2017 by Chris McNultyShare 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:donegalMichael MurphyShane Williamslast_img read more

Category: rkfzcrmkaynujbla Jobless South African man builds helicopter

first_img19 June 2015All he wanted to do was fly in a helicopter. So an unemployed man at Siza informal settlement near Rustenburg decided to follow his dream – and build his own helicopter.Now he is calling on aviation experts or experienced pilots to check if it would be safe for him to take his home-built helicopter on its maiden flight.Vusimuzi Mbatha, 35, originally from Libode in the Eastern Cape, said he became fascinated with helicopters after seeing one during a strike on the platinum belt in North West in 2014.“I dreamt I was controlling a helicopter. That was in January last year, during the strike in the platinum mines. The dream continued and I decided to follow it. It was easy to build this helicopter because I have a vision of what I wanted to do,” he said.He said he started to buy parts, bit by bit, and used scrap metal to build his helicopter.The giant helicopter stands proud in front of his shack, attracting locals to take a look at the metal giant with a roaring engine.“We thought he was playing when he started to assemble it. We did not see it until today [18 June]. All we heard was the roar of an engine and rotating rotor,” said Kgositsile Lumko.“We are surprised. We never expected something like this to come from our area. This guy is talented. [The] government needs to help him to take his dream further.”Interest in scienceMbatha, who only went to school up to Grade 7, said he was always interested in science but could not further his education because of financial constraints.“I like the military, that is the reason for my helicopter to resemble an army helicopter,” he said, dressed in camouflage pants and black beret.“I designed this outfit because of my interest in soldiers.”The helicopter sports a television set, a clock on the back of a seat, and a two way- radio. It has a green and a red light on its tail that flash at night. Its engine is powered by petrol and a motorbike battery is used to propel the rotor. The rotor hub is housed in an old cold drink crate.The cockpit is also built out of cold drink crates. A fire extinguisher is located on the left side of the helicopter. It stands on a four-wheeled trolley built out of scrap metal.“The clock helps me to know what time the flight took place and what time I return.”The steering wheel is made from a PlayStation control. There is also a clutch and an accelerator.“The helicopter is incomplete; there are some parts that I have to put in. The challenge is the money. I am not working and depend on odd jobs to build this helicopter.”He wanted experienced pilots or aviation experts to inspect his helicopter before he could take it to the sky, Mbatha said.“Flying is dangerous. I want the helicopter to be inspected for safety before I can fly.”InspirationNeighbours flocked to Mbatha’s shack when they heard the roar of an engine.“We are impressed. How he managed to build this is a miracle,” said Selobane James.Thabang Khang said Mbatha’s inventions were a motivating factor for children in Siza.“A lot of children must draw inspiration from this man. With limited education he pursued his dream and is just few steps away from reaching his goal. He is highly talented.”Mbatha came to Rustenburg a decade ago looking for a job on the mines, but remains unemployed.Source: News24Wirelast_img read more

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The Ohio Corn & Wheat Growers Association (OCWGA) and the Ohio Soybean Association (OSA) endorsed Ohio Senate Bill 229 and Ohio House Bill 634, bipartisan legislation which would invest significant new resources to protect water quality throughout the state.OCWGA and OSA representatives will testify today in favor of HB 634, sponsored by Rep. Steve Arndt (R-Port Clinton) and Rep. John Patterson (D-Jefferson), before the House Finance Committee and in favor of SB 229, sponsored by Sen. Randy Gardner (R-Bowling Green) and Sen. Sean O’Brien (D-Bazetta), at the Senate Finance Committee.“Ohio grain farmers have demonstrated their commitment to the protection of both soils and water quality by investing their time and money to work with partners and find solutions,” said OCWGA board member Mark Drewes. “We applaud this bipartisan coalition of legislators for making the health of Lake Erie and other bodies of water a priority.”“This will help even more farmers implement best management practices,” said OSA President Allen Armstrong. “Farmers have invested millions of dollars in research and education to address water quality, and we would welcome new resources from the State of Ohio.”If approved, the two bills would:Invest as much as $20 million in farm equipment and other initiatives to reduce phosphorus runoff in the Western Lake Erie Basin;Invest $10 million to prevent open lake dumping of dredged materials in Lake Erie;Invest $2.65 million in the Ohio State Sea Grant’s Stone Laboratory near Put-in-Bay to pay for research lab space and monitoring devices;Invest $3.5 million to support the conservation efforts of the soil and water conservation districts in the Western Lake Erie Basin.last_img read more

What I would like to stress is that Jeff has done WELL over 50+ 101 events for SEVERAL groups from the Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, Libraries, and any group that asks for a class to be held. Some of these events have been several hours away, but Jeff is always willing to lend a hand and do this.Jeff has hosted 8 “unofficial” trips to a 5×5 caches of his, The Siege!.

Category: rkfzcrmkaynujbla India sends powerful signal of ambitions on the world stage

first_imgPresident Trump will attend the World Economic Forum this year, marking the first time an American president has joined the gathering in nearly 20 years. But there’s another leader of a major country who will stop in Davos for the first time in two decades. It’s Narendra Modi, India’s prime minister.India’s interest in Davos is not new. For several years, the Indian government and private sector have made the annual gathering shindig a favored venue to promote the image of a new, more business-friendly India. In 2006, they spearheaded a grand “India Everywhere” campaign.Still, when a head of government leads the delegation, the appearance carries more weight. Last year, Chinese President Xi Jinping’s Davos visit — the first for a Chinese head of state — kicked off a new international narrative about China’s global leadership ambitions. Perhaps that’s what inspired Modi’s decision to attend. Like China, the India of today seeks a larger place on the world stage.Read it at The Hill Related Itemslast_img read more
