Marathoner vows to conquer North Pole

first_imgLATEST STORIES UK plans Brexit celebrations but warns businesses may suffer GALLERY: Barangay Ginebra back as PBA Governors’ Cup kings “There is a possibility that you might encounter polar bears. So it’s not only about the cold temperatures and sadness, there is also fear that something might chase or eat you.”Preparing for an extraordinary race requires unusual training methods and a special team, which Sangalang has.His camp is led by his coach Ige Lopez and Romi Garduce, the country’s top mountaineer most known for being the first and only Filipino to date to complete the “Seven Summits” climb in 2012.The 40-year-old Sangalang said there are three phases to his training. First puts premium on his conditioning, second is to help him familiarize with the different weather conditions before culminating with acclimatizing to the sub-zero temperatures.Being in a natural environment that would replicate or at least come close to the cold in the North Pole, Sangalang said creating a makeshift space to simulate what the actual feel would be like during the race is the next best thing.ADVERTISEMENT Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next “What we’re looking at is actually an industrial freezer then we’ll put a treadmill inside so that I can start running there and maybe simulate the wind by putting in fans so that’s what we envision that facility to be,” he said.Winning the race would be the ideal outcome for Sangalang, but up against some of the world’s best runners, the only promise he could make was to be among the finishers.“Runners don’t usually predict their race times or race finishes but what I can guarantee is that I’m gonna finish this, definitely I’m gonna finish this,” he said. “For me, it’s not important if I finish first. Ideally, I want to finish first but it’s not really an issue of who finishes first. I’m racing for the Philippines so as long as I finish it, I think I’ve done justice to FWD and the Filipino people.”Garduce exudes the same confidence as Sangalang, whom he believes has what it takes to get the job done regardless of adversities that may come.“Number one factor is mental. And I’m not worried about that because this guy is very tough,” Garduce said. “I can’t imagine myself being able to overcome what he went through as a cancer survivor so definitely, his mental strength is already there.”“For me, what he only needs to prepare for is the technical aspect which is understanding winter survival skills, but the mental aspect which is really key in completing this marathon is already with him I’m not too worried about that. He can do it.”Sangalang, who is overwhelmed with excitement over a once in a lifetime opportunity, leaves for Norway, which is about a three-hour flight from the North Pole, on March 30.“I feel excited. I feel very much honored that I was given this opportunity to run the North Pole Marathon,” he said. “I hope that I can carry the dreams of the Filipinos with me especially that I’ve never been to a cold country wherein there’s snow, so this is my first time to see snow and I’m very excited.” Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Nueva Ecija warehouse making fake cigarettes raided, 29 Chinese workers nabbed Steam emission over Taal’s main crater ‘steady’ for past 24 hours Sangalang is the only Filipino participating in the North Pole Marathon set on April 9.“I consider this not just my most challenging race but the most challening event to date in my life,” Sangalang, who also practices Muay Thai and jiujitsu, said during the media launch of FWD Life Philippines’ “Blaze a Trail in the Arctic” campaign on Tuesday. “It’s one thing to run a marathon and it’s another thing to run it in below freezing temperatures.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkTemperatures are expected to hit minus 30 to 40 degrees Celsius during the race and yet, the extreme weather condition is not the only thing Sangalang needs to prepare himself for.The snowy terrain is another, which he had hoped to have simulated when he competed in a trail run along the sandy area of Pagudpud, Ilocos Norte recently.

Shabby Flags Over Senate: Observer MD to the Rescue

first_imgDaily Observer Publisher and Managing Director, Kenneth Y. Best has provided the Liberian Senate 16 flags representing all 15 counties and a giant-size Liberian flag.The flags are to be hoisted on the compound of the Liberian Legislature, the official working theater of the Vice President and members of the Legislature.The good will gesture of Mr. Best came after he had observed over many months that most if not all the flags on poles on the Senate side of the Capitol Building were torn and faded.Making the presentation to Senate Pro-Tempore Gbehzohngar Findley last week, Mr. Best said he could go ahead criticizing the Senate without doing something about the problem.  “But I felt that would not be the best thing to do. So, I decided to order the flags made and I now humbly present them to you, Mr. President Pro-Tempore.”Mr. Best also presented a full size flag of the Republic which, he said, would be more appropriate to be flown near the doom of the Capitol, instead of the smaller Liberian flag flying there that he felt was somehow disproportionate.Expressing gratitude for the gesture, Senate Pro-Tempore, Gbehzohngar Findley said the old flags were embarrassing to the Senate as their faded colors and tattered look did not represent the first branch of government.He also thanked Mr. Best for deciding not to criticize the Senate in his editorial column, but instead thoughtfully decided to make provision for what was lacking at the premises of the Senate. Pro-Temp Findley described Mr. Best’s presentation as “a true act of patriotism.”Upon receiving the flags, the Pro-Temp ordered the Sergeant-at-Arms of the Senate to immediately take down the old, “disgraceful ones” and hoist the new flags. The Senate is now in line with the House in having new flags flying on both sides of the Capitol, unlike the past when only the House of Representatives had new flags with clean and identifiable colors. The Legislature has been seriously criticized over the years for doing little to represent the country through the hoisting of county and national symbols.It can be recalled that in the 52nd Legislature, Representative Edwin M. Snowe singlehandedly procured flags for each county on his side of the Capitol Building.One of the building’s staffers asked: “When these ones get damaged, who will pay to get another set of new ones?”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Condemning ongoing slanderous and disparaging campaign to discredit PPP Presidential Candidate

first_imgDear Editor,Please allow me to respond to the ongoing vitriolic and virulent campaign by the APNU/AFC supporters to discredit and disparage the credibility of Irfaan Ali, the PPP presidential candidate.First, Ali is by far one of the most qualified persons to ever contest for higher office in Guyana. His exemplary and impeccable track record as a Government Minister, apart from being one of the leading figures behind the 2011-14 orchestrated economic boom, though the unprecedented housing programme, undoubtedly, allowed him to reach the zenith of his political career, whereby he is now the presidential candidate of the largest single political party in Guyana.It must be noted, however, that the ongoing series of ad hominem attack and spurious allegations of academic fraud levied against Ali arouse much apoplexy amongst some of his closes acquaintances and comrades who are well familiar with his academic achievements.Ali has a Bachelor of Arts (Hon) in Business Management from the University of Sunderland through the RDI distance learning program, a Master’s Degree in Human Resource Planning and Development from the Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University in India, and another Master’s Degree in Finance from the Anglian Ruskin University (ARU) which was offered through the Arden University.Ali even went a step further and furnished the media with all his certificates upon their request, an unprecedented gesture by any statesman, to clarify all doubts. Such politeness and sincerity, however, has cost him. Ali is now faced with a series of unsubstantiated and spurious attacks, all with the sole intent to discredit and harm his personal reputation.And what is even more unbecoming, is the fact that those who vehemently criticised him didn’t utter a single word of apology after they would have received written confirmation by the various academic institutions validating and confirming the authenticity of his various certificates.However, because of his rising threat to the Government, his critics are bent on keeping the propaganda machine well oiled. One of the latest allegations was by one who goes by the name of Shawn Sam, who, on March 2, penned an article in the Guyana Chronicle accusing Ali of obtaining a fictitious Master’s Degree in Finance from the Anglian Ruskin University (ARU). Again, like other false accusers, Sam didn’t offer any substantiated evidence to support his argument, but instead resorted to the much erroneous and misleading claim that no online programme is being offered by the said academic institution.Hence, a simple google of Anglian Ruskin University (ARU) would reveal that indeed, the university is offering online graduate programmes in finance. To be specific, the program is being offered as an MBA in Finance.Finally, Ali’s commitment to self-improvement and intellectual development is astounding and unmatched. In his latest quest for higher education, he is currently enrolled in the prestigious and internationally recognised LLM International Commercial Law at the University of Salford.The programme, inter alia, will explore critical areas of international commercial law, corporate law and governance. Also critical to note is that he is currently awaiting results from the University of the West Indies on his PhD dissertation.Hence, the calibre and commitment of Ali is unmatched and it’s in my humble view such qualities should be celebrated and not condemned for mere political credits.Sincerely,A Grantlast_img read more

“Foreign speaking” gunmen swoop down on Chinese mining camp

first_img– escape with gold, cash, guns and ammunition Four armed men on Wednesday last carried out a brazen daylight robbery on China High Tech Mining Company at Black Water Backdam, Cuyuni River, Region Seven (Cuyuni-Mazaruni).The incident occurred between 12:45h and 17:00h.The men, who were all masked and reportedly spoke Portuguese, broken English and Spanish, carted off 50 ounces of raw gold estimated at $13 million, US$500 and two GPS systems belonging to the owner of the mining company.In addition, they also took with them one 12-gauge semi-automatic shotgun with six matching rounds and one AR rifle along with eight matching rounds, property of Marks Interior Communication.Based on reports received, Marks Interior Communication is contracted by the Chinese company to provide armed security during a dredge wash-down.However, about 12:00h on the day in question, the General Manager and a crew were escorted to the company’s office to oversee the production by Stephen Hall, an unarmed security officer. Another guard, Jason Critchlow, who was armed with a 12-gauge shotgun, had left the crew and gone to the kitchen to have something to eat.However, on his way back, the four masked armed men emerged from the nearby bushes and held him at gunpoint. Critchlow was ordered to drop his firearm and he complied.After taking possession of the firearm, two men remained on the road while the other two invaded the office and opened fire. Several workers, including Hall, attempted to escape, but several rounds were discharged in their direction thus stopping them from doing so.During the gunfire, Hall, of Diamond, East Bank Demerara (EBD), was shot to his left middle finger. Subsequently, the crew was gathered and one of them was ordered to burn the amalgam gold while the gunmen stood guard.After collecting the recovered gold, the men ransacked the office where they found a rifle that was stored in a strongbox. The gunmen then made good their escape.Police were summoned to the scene, where they discovered five 12-gauge and one .223 spent shells. The injured Hall was air-dashed to the Georgetown Public Hospital by an Air Services Limited helicopter.The Police are yet to make an arrest.Earlier in the month, four armed men executed a robbery on a mining camp at Baboon Backdam, Cuyuni River, Region Seven, escaping with a quantity of raw gold and other valuables, including a licensed shotgun.It was reported that the bandits were armed with rifles and shotguns and were clad in dark-coloured clothing. The men also spoke a foreign language.Initial investigations revealed that about 28 workers attached to Mohamed’s Enterprise were in the mining camp when the men held the camp hostage.The miners were ordered to hand over all the raw gold that was kept in the camp and personal items, including the shotgun.After committing the robbery, the gunmen left. No one was injured during the ordeal. A team comprising members of the Joint Services had been sent to investigate the robbery, but, to date, no arrests have been made.last_img read more

‘Our objective is to qualify’, says Dover

first_imgCONCACAF Men’s U20 C/ships…As Guyana prepare for their first match of the CONCACAF Men’s U20 Championship — against Guatemala on November 2 in Florida — Head Coach Wayne Dover has said the side’s main goal is to advance to the next round.The Under20 Jags team during trainingA 26-man provisional squad has already been announced, and training, which began a week ago, is focused firstly on the squad’s physical evaluation.Dover had this to say about the training session, “The week began with physical evaluation of the players, to test the level of fitness of players. Our aim, as staff, is to qualify; and we made it clear to the players (as to) the level of discipline, dedication, commitment and hard work that is required to achieve the objective. The teams in the group are very tough on paper, but we all know that the matches are played on the field, and every team has a chance to win and qualify once they apply themselves.”The squad in training consists of Guyana-based players, and is comprised of four goalkeepers, seven defenders, 11 midfielders and four forwards. A forward and a defender were selected from players who had participated in the recently-concluded Indigenous Heritage Games.“During the Indigenous Heritage Sports, we did some scouting, and identified two talents which add strength to the U20 national programme,” Dover confided. Neston Brown and David Coates, both from the Rupununi FA, will join the team in the new week.“Brown is a left full back, a position which has slowly become a dying breed in Guyana. He possesses qualities which, once harnessed properly, can see him become a senior national player who can perform as (Walter) Moore and (Chris) Bourne did with distinction. Coates, on the other hand, has demonstrated qualities as a forward which can match the talent we have seen in the past, such as Gregory Richardson. We will nurture them to realise their potential,” Head Coach Dover declared.Commenting on the physical evaluation of players conducted, the National U20 Coach Developer & Head of Sports Science, Wilson Toledo, said the group has done fairly well over the past week.Guyana’s match schedule in the first round will see them take on Guatemala, Cayman Islands, Curacao and El Salvador.last_img read more

Pasadena homeless count drops for 3rd straight year

first_imgThe majority of Pasadena’s homeless – 504 – is male and white, but on any given day there are almost as many women and children – 465. The count showed African-American adults account for 29.2 of the homeless population in 2007, down from 36.9 percent in 2005. The number of married homeless declined from 138, or 17.6 percent, in 2005 to 59, or 7.8 percent, this year. At the same time single adult numbers increase from 644, or 82.2 percent in 2005 to 696, or 92.2percent this year. Colletti credits local services with continuing to help the homeless get off the streets. “I think I’m pleased \ because clearly homeless service providers are helping people get off the streets,” Colletti said. “Again, what is discouraging is that clearly younger women with children are leaving the city because they no longer can afford to live here.” The count, a condition of the $3 million in funding received from the Department of Housing and Urban Development, was carried out in January by the Pasadena Police Department’s Homeless Outreach Psychiatric Evaluation team, Pacific Clinics and about 20 students from Fuller Theological Seminary, Colletti said. janette.williams@sgvn.com (626) 578-6300, Ext. 4482 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

PASADENA – The city’s adult homeless population has decreased for the third year in a row, according to a preliminary report by the Institute for Urban Research and Development. Pasadena’s annual count in January showed 969 homeless – 722 adults and 214 children – down from 1,165 in 2006 and 1,217 in 2005, said Joe Colletti, the agency’s executive director. “It’s a shrinking population,” he said. “The methodology of the count can’t answer why, but it can show trends.” He added, “It’s very clear there’s a significant decrease of African-American women under the age of 40 with children … and of Latino and white women with children, and an overall significant decrease in the number of children. The number of children has gone down by half – in 2005 there were 435.” last_img read more

GM strike seeks job security

first_imgBy Tom Krisher and Dee-Ann Durbin THE ASSOCIATED PRESS DETROIT – In the end, the first nationwide strike against General Motors Corp. in 37 years came because the United Auto Workers want something that GM will find difficult to promise: job security. UAW officials said the 73,000 UAW members who work at about 80 U.S. facilities for the nation’s largest automaker didn’t strike Monday over what many thought would trip up the talks: a plan to shift the retiree health-care burden from the company to the union. They said they also didn’t strike over wages. They said union members walked out because they want GM to promise that future cars and trucks such as the replacement for the Chevrolet Cobalt small car or the still-on-the-drawing board Chevrolet Volt plug-in electric car will be built at U.S. plants, preserving union jobs. The strike puts GM, which is restructuring so it can better compete with Asian automakers, in a bind as some of its new products begin to catch on with consumers. But it also means workers are taking a big risk – giving up pay and slowing down GM in an uncertain economy. “Job security is one of our primary concerns,” UAW President Ron Gettelfinger told reporters Monday afternoon after talks broke off and the strike began. “We’re talking about investment and we’re talking about job creation” and preserving benefits, he said. Talks resumed a short time later as sign-carrying pickets marched outside plant gates, but weary bargainers stopped to rest around 8 p.m. Talks were to resume this morning. Worker Anita Ahrens burst into tears as hundreds of employees streamed out of a GM plant in Janesville, Wis., just after the strike began at 11 a.m. EDT. “Oh my God, here they come,” said Ahrens, 39. “This is unreal.” Ahrens has seven years at the plant, where she works nights installing speakers in sport-utility vehicles. She waited Monday for her husband, Ron Ahrens, who has worked there for 21 years. The couple have three children, including a college freshman, and Ahrens worried about how they would pay their bills. “This is horrible, but we’re die-hard union, so we have to,” Ahrens said. “We got a mortgage, two car payments and tons of freaking bills.” The striking workers will receive $200 a week plus medical benefits from the UAW’s strike fund. The union had more than $800 million in that fund as of last November, according to the UAW’s Web site. The UAW, Gettelfinger said, is willing to talk about taking money from the company to form a trust that would be responsible for billions of dollars in retiree health-care costs. GM wants the trust, called a Voluntary Employees Beneficiary Association, or VEBA, so it can move much of its $51 billion in unfunded retiree health-care liabilities off the books, potentially raising the stock price and credit ratings. It’s all part of the company’s quest to cut or eliminate about a $25-per-hour labor cost disparity with its Japanese competitors. “This strike is not about the VEBA in any way, shape or form,” Gettelfinger said. “We were more than eager to discuss it,” although he said no agreement had been reached. Industry analysts said initially the strike would have little effect on consumers because GM has sufficient inventory stockpiled for most of its products. But Monday afternoon, the Teamsters transportation union said its 10,000 automotive transport members would not cross UAW picket lines to deliver GM cars and trucks. GM reported that it had just under 950,000 vehicles in its inventory at the end of August, about 35,000 below the same time last year. Tom Libby, senior director of industry analysis for J.D. Power and Associates, said even a short strike could hurt the company because its new crossover vehicles, the Buick Enclave, GMC Acadia and Saturn Outlook, are selling well and in short supply. “The momentum they’ve established for those products would be interrupted if there’s a supply interruption,” Libby said. “There’s not a lot of inventory available to sell down. So they need to keep that pipeline full.” Libby called the Enclave and Acadia a success story for GM because they don’t stay on lots for long and sell at or near full price. “GM, financially, they don’t have a lot of cushion,” he said. “I just think it’s going to hurt both sides in the long run.” GM had about a 65-day supply of cars and trucks as September began, versus a 71-day supply at the same time last year, said Paul Taylor, chief economist for the National Automobile Dealers Association. The Enclave, he said, is at a tight 24-day supply. The strike will cost GM about 12,200 vehicles per day or 760 per hour, according to the auto forecasting firm CSM Worldwide of Northville. If the walkout goes beyond 36 hours, CSM expects vehicle production in Canada to be affected because of a lack of U.S.-built engines and transmissions. The walkout could further damage the image of the UAW, David Cole, chairman of the Center for Automotive Research in Ann Arbor, said shortly before the strike began. “What it says is the union is the same old militant organization,” Cole said. “What is a real concern is buyers that punish a union by not buying the products they build.” Cole said the UAW leadership may need a strike to show members that it did all it could to get the best deal. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The suspects were captured Monday and Tuesday in Ramadi, the capital of Anbar province, the military announced Thursday. One of the suspects was thought to have “facilitated” the kidnapping and used his house to hide the soldiers, the military said. A weapon belonging to one of the U.S. soldiers was found at the residence of the other suspect. “All I can say is – good,” Anzack’s father, Joseph Anzack Sr., said Thursday on hearing of the arrests. “I’m glad that they got them.

GAA: MALIN 2-11, FOUR MASTERS 1-12

first_imgMalin 2-11 Four Masters 1-12Malin gained another two vital points in Connolly Park on Sunday to keep their good start to the season going. Both teams were not at full strength with Four Masters without their county men and Malin missing Declan Walsh and a number of players who were involved in the Inishowen Oscar Traynor soccer squad. Despite this both teams produced an entertaining affair, Malin started the better with an Anthony Kelly free after Paul McLaughlin had been fouled. Paul McLaughlin got a goal shortly after when he received a pass from Kieran McColgan who had gone on a great run, but despite being surrounded by up to three Four Masters defenders, managed to get his pass away to McLaughlin, who made no mistake from five yards out. Four Masters came right back into the game and dominated the next ten minutes. Conor McDaid with a monster free from all of 50 yards got the Donegal town men off the mark. Conor Ryan added another from play before two more Mc Daid frees levelled the game. The visitors edged ahead when Stephen Keeney scored a looped shot from the thirteen which just crept over the bar. Conor Ryan got his second of the game in a good move worked across the pitch. Malin came back into the game with another Kelly free. Conor McMonagle scored a long range point for Four Masters and likewise Seamus Houghton scored from range for the Malin men. Malin then survived a scare when full back Damien Harkin blocked brilliantly on the line to deny Four Masters a goal. This proved important as Malin finished the half stronger with three unanswered points. Paul McLaughlin scored after a worked free from Anthony Kelly and Mc Laughlin added another shortly after. Anthony Kelly scored from a long range effort from play to leave the halftime score Malin 1-06 Four Masters 0-07.  Malin opened the scoring in the second half with a handpass over the bar from McLaughlin after good work from Gerard Green and Finbar Collins. Mc Laughlin was in good scoring form now and he reacted quickest after a goal mouth scrabble to work the ball back and get a point when the chance seemed over. Michael Doherty scored for Donegal despite falling as he shot to respond. A great Malin move saw Seamus Houghton deliver the ball to Full forward Jason Doherty who laid off for the incoming Conor Farren who slotted over to edge Malin four ahead again. Donegal Town were back in it again after a superbly struck penalty from Raymond McRuairi gave Lafferty no chance. The reprieve was short lived as Malin responded with a goal of their own. A hop ball on the Four Masters 21’ broke loose and a deft flick from Niall McLaughlin sent Jason Doherty clear and he finished low past Martin for another Malin goal. Four masters scored from McRuairi again, a high left footed effort over the bar and when Michael Doherty added another free to set up a tense final ten minutes. Michael Doherty had a great goal chance after this but Lafferty managed to stop his effort and the ball went clear. Anthony Kelly scored from a free to stretch the lead to two but it was short lived as Doherty responded with a free of his own. Malin managed to seal the win with a monster free from Kelly from all of 50 yards from out on the left and the team managed to keep possession until the final whistle to cap another good win for Terence Coulhoun’s men. Malin Team and Scorers: Declan Lafferty, John Colm Doherty, Damien Harkin, Michael McLaughlin, Daniel Green, John McLaughlin, Finbar Collins, Seamus Houghton (0-01), Anthony Kelly (0-04), Gerard Green, Kieran McColgan, Conor Farren (0-01), Paul McLaughlin (1-05) Jason Doherty (1-00) Charles Byrne.
