The Nets’ operating loss of $23.5 million last season was higher than any other team except the Detroit Pistons.This season the outlook is brighter for the team thanks to an increase in television revenues of nearly $50 million, in part the result of increases in the NBA’s national television contract.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Coco’s house rules on ‘Probinsyano’ set 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 View comments Kiss-and-tell matinee idol’s conquests: True stories or tall tales?

Times have changed for Guyana’s status in CARICOM!

first_imgDear Editor,As a young Guyanese, I have always heard of the callous and second class treatment of Guyanese in other CARICOM countries; namely, Trinidad and Barbados, which are two of the four major architects of the CARICOM Agreement with Guyana and Jamaica.Guyanese have complained for years of the difficulty of travelling to these countries, and the greater difficulty of obtaining work agreements (contrary to the CARICOM Single Market Agreement); and many other abuses, including severe ill-treatment and harassment in these territories.Let us not forget the mass kicking out of Guyanese workers recently in Barbados and ill-treatment of Guyanese entering Trinidad &Tobago, which the last administration tried to address unsuccessfully.It should be noted that under the CARICOM Single Market and Economy (CSME), one of the core tenets of the agreement is the free movement of skills/labour for CARICOM nationals, and the ability to seek work and/or engage in gainful employment WITHOUT the need to obtain a work permit in the member state in which he/she wishes to work (https://foreign.gov.tt/services/csme/).This was hardly ever the case for Guyanese, a state which helped to craft the original agreement, and today houses the CARICOM Headquarters. How that can possibly happen for such an important member is beyond comprehension, and would require volumes of articles to detail.Editor, I always felt it was my duty to represent my country in the best light, and one of the more positive themes I would hear from residents of other sister territories is that Guyanese are some of the hardest working people they have ever known.While I agree that a few apples might have spoilt the lot, the contributions to CARICOM from many Guyanese in terms of skilled labour and entrepreneurship have for many decades been magnanimous, but not appreciated still to this day.Guyana’s best entrepreneurs, teachers, doctors, artisans, carpenters etc. fleeing oppression and bad governance for much of its post-colonial history at the hands of the PNC and PPP, contributed immensely to the development of these territories; yet, many today cannot claim they are Guyanese in those territories due to shame, or fearing they will be denigrated.Editor, I must proclaim that today, with a sense of irony and prophesy, for which I predicted many years ago that there will come a time that nationals from those CARICOM countries (especially those known for the ill-treatment of Guyanese) will swim to our shores, we are now seeing some semblance of that.It has been reported recently that the majority of entrants into the country are citizens of Trinidad, arriving most likely due to oil bonanza currently being realised. I suspect many others will follow, especially as Guyana keeps racking up oil discoveries one after the other.Guyana is predicted to surpass oil extraction by miles more than Trinidad and Tobago at the height of its oil extraction years.Editor, we also, just today, saw former PM of Trinidad and Tobago, Ms. Kamla Persad-Bissessar, urging her current Government in the twin-island republic to pursue a partnership with neighbouring Guyana to refine its oil in order to avert the closure of the Petrotrin refinery (https://oilnow.gy/news/former-tt-prime-minister-thinks-guyana-oil-can-save-petrotrin-refinery-from-closure/).Who would have ever imagined that a high ranking member of CARICOM government would ever see Guyana as a key strategic partner and economically. Oh, how the times have changed!!!Where was the support for Guyana when her citizens were being mistreated and denigrated as second class citizens, for which many were rounded up out their beds and deported, belittled and ridiculed?I suspect that as the oil economy matures and the opportunities present themselves (if our current crop of leaders do not massively screw it up) we will see more nationals from the sister territories arriving, and despite the history of bad treatment, in my heart of hearts, I know fellow Guyanese will open the doors to other sister CARICOM nationals (as we for our South American neighbours) and not treat them the same as was done to us.I think we ought to be the bigger partner and do just that. We ran because we chose leaders who did not have our best interest at heart, and who were responsible for the bulk of our negative image and reputation.While we may forgive, we will NEVER forget how many countless Guyanese were belittled, chased, and persecuted in tough times when they needed a friend.I will continue to believe that my fellow countrymen and women are some of the best citizens in the world, with the biggest hearts, especially for those in need; as it reminds us so personally of our own struggles and experiences that still continue to this day, but hopefully will get better, if only for a short time.Editor, while I believe that the topic of our membership in CARICOM should be explored, I will leave that debate for some astute expert and thinker. However, I suspect that if Guyana were to ever elect a leader like Donald Trump, the idea of removing ourselves from that agreement would not be farfetched, as I believe that Guyana has not really been a beneficiary member of CARICOM, and the opposite may in fact be true.Humbly,Tony Persaudlast_img read more

The vote of two vs the people and Constitution

first_imgDear Editor,It has shown time again that courts have made decisions that goes against all logic and standing precedents in order to achieve a certain outcome.And in the case of our Court of Appeal, we see this playing out in full force. We cite many of the oldest and largest democracies in the world as a good source for understanding the context of majority votes and how it is applied.There are three ways that a majority vote works and they are: a simple majority, an absolute majority and a special majority. In cases where the need for an absolute majority is not stated, then we default to a simple majority.In our Constitution, there is no mention of an absolute majority and as such, a simple majority is to be used.Therefore, unless the Court of Appeal has the power to rewrite the Constitution, they should follow due process and standing precedents until such time that the Constitution is amended.In the world’s largest democracies, a simple majority is used for, among other things, the passing of no-confidence motions and it is defined by a majority of one when there is an odd number and a majority of plus one when there is an even number.Therefore, it would be surprising to many legal minds to find that two of three judges have decided to rule in favour of a scenario relevant to an even number and not in accordance to our present situation of an odd number.Then the questions are asked, how do we form a Government with a majority of 33 but are not able to pass a motion? And does this mean the 2015 election is a statistical tie and we should go to a runoff? And what is the purpose of 32 seats? Because if we follow what the court ruled, 32 seats is now a phantom number that does not exist.I smell many things in the air including a fish market.Sincerely,Malcolm Watkinslast_img read more

Bragging Rights stuns as 16 teams compete

first_imgWhat was deemed as one of the biggest football tournaments to ever hit the Marriott Beach front lived up to its expectation on Friday night, as 16 teams competed for $500,000 and bragging rights in the five-a-side Bragging Rights Football tournament.Part of the ongoing action in the Bragging Rights 5-a-side football tournamentBefore the tournament began, the rules were explained by the emcee, who stated that each team would play two preliminary matches, and would play the other two matches on Saturday, and whoever has the highest points would qualify for the semifinals and finals on Sunday.The matches were fourteen minutes long, with half-time being at seven minutes; and if teams were unable to score in the allotted 14 minutes, the match was then taken into sudden death penalty.The first match of the night saw Uprising battling Avocado Ballers. The tension was there, and the nerves were clearly evident in the demeanour of the players. After the first minute, the score was 0-0 as both teams attacked from every end.Eventually half-time came, and the score remained the same. But the game was not over, as one minute after half-time Uprising slipped one in, and held on to that lead as they defeated the mighty Avocado Ballers in the first game.In the second game, Bent Street took on Hardball. Bent Street received many opportunities to score, as the ball hit the goal post six times, but they were unable to score, or make any conversion.Hardball, on the other hand, came back just before half time and scored a goal, leaving the total at 1-0, with Bent Street searching for a goal. As time progressed, Bent Street continued to press on, but Hardball’s defence was too much for Bent Street to handle, and they lost the game 0-1 at full time.In the third match, the youthful Silver Star took on Back Circle. Silver Star took control of the match, scoring the first goal within minutes of play, and maintaining the lead after half time.But with one minute remaining in the match, Back Circle miraculously scored a goal, equalising the scores and thus taking the match to a penalty shootout, which they lost 2-1.Another of the matches played on the night saw Old School Ballers vs Gold is Money. The event was a back-and-forth match until the Ballers scored a goal before close of play.Sparta Boss could not find their rhythm, and lost their two preliminary matches of the night to penalties, leaving some disappointed fans and players. The action continues tonight. (TIMOTHY JAIKARRAN)last_img read more

Yates rates `front row’ at Daytona

first_imgThat dark time saw Yates lose his drivers, a sponsor and both of his crew chiefs in a tumultuous year that saw the once-proud team collapse to the point that Yates was convinced he was dying. But just like a true racer, the car owner refused to close shop and fought to keep the family business on the track. He handed the keys to his two cars to Gilliland, an unproven rookie, and Rudd, the Iron Man of NASCAR who spent last year out of racing and mowing the 30 acres of grass on his North Carolina farm. They proved Sunday that there’s life in this Yates team, after all. Gilliland turned a lap of 186.320 mph to win the pole, and Rudd was right behind at 185.609 to put themselves on the front row for the season-opening Nextel Cup Daytona 500 next Sunday. “It’s like a dream that I’m afraid to wake up from,” said Gilliland, coming off Saturday night’s second-place finish in the exhibition Budweiser Shootout. Gilliland and Rudd were the only two drivers to lock down their starting spots under a complicated qualifying procedure for NASCAR’s biggest event of the year that was marred when Matt Kenseth and Kasey Kahne’s cars failed inspection and Michael Waltrip’s was impounded because of a suspicious part. The top 35 drivers from 2006 are assured a spot in the 500, but their starting position will be determined by a pair of qualifying races Thursday. It leaves eight other spots to fill, and 26 drivers are vying for them. Dale Jarrett is guaranteed one of them by virtue of the past champions provisional, as are the three fastest drivers in qualifying from that group. That caveat promised Boris Said, Sterling Marlin and Johnny Sauter spots in the race. Toyota, which is making its Nextel Cup debut this season, had a horrendous qualifying effort and will need brilliant qualifying races to get the bulk of its Camrys into the field. Jarrett is in, along with Dave Blaney, who earned a berth because of his 2006 standings. But the rest of the bunch struggled, including Waltrip, whose intake manifold was confiscated at the start of the day because inspectors found a questionable substance inside the part. Waltrip, a two-time Daytona 500 winner, was 25th in qualifying and his Camry was later impounded. “There’s nothing wrong with it,” Waltrip insisted. “We just had an oil problem of some sort.” David Reutimann was the best of the Toyota bunch at 15th, and was followed by Jeremy Mayfield (16th), Mike Skinner (18th), Waltrip, Blaney (39th), A.J. Allmendinger (40th), Brian Vickers (45th) and Jarrett (50th). Juan Pablo Montoya flirted with the front row, putting his new No. 42 Dodge in the second spot only to be bumped from it moments later by teammate David Stremme. Stremme ended up third and Montoya was fourth. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Robert Yates Racing went from skid row to the front row, emerging from the darkest season in team history to take the Daytona 500 spotlight. At least for a week. center_img David Gilliland and Ricky Rudd won the top two starting spots Sunday in qualifying for the Daytona 500, putting Yates back on the racing map after a horrendous season. “There was a time last year when I felt like I maybe was the problem, and wasn’t in love with it and really wanted to leave (racing),” Yates said. “I could have walked out of here last year. I want this next year to get this thing up, get the sky that was falling on us, get it up.” last_img read more

A loonie twist on dollar’s dip

first_imgNEW YORK – The loonie has taken off. Thanks to a sinking U.S. dollar and soaring commodities prices that benefit resources-rich Canada, that country’s currency – named for a Canadian bird, the loon, on the $1 coin – as of Thursday can be exchanged 1-for-1 with the greenback for the first time in more than 30 years. What’s good for Canadian consumers and U.S. exporters, however, isn’t such a boon to U.S. shoppers, who will find it more expensive to travel to Canada and to buy goods from the nation’s largest trading partner. That’s a condition being repeated all around the globe as the dollar tumbles against a slew of currencies, including the euro, the pound and even the Indian rupee. Krys Esteves of Caledon, near Toronto, headed into the mall with her mother, Maria Swica of Mississauga, Ontario. “My son wants a soft-serve ice cream maker for Christmas so I’m looking for that,” Esteves said. “It’s just to compare. Right now, I know it’s definitely to our advantage.” The Canadian dollar hovered near parity in late New York trading Thursday, buying 99.93 U.S. cents. Today’s numbers, however, do not mean that the dollar is facing a meltdown. Thursday’s drop is of greater concern to currency markets than U.S. households, except “if you’re a connoisseur of French wines or Canadian maple syrup,” said David Gilmore, a partner at Foreign Exchange Analytics in Essex, Conn. Canada’s currency rose sharply against the U.S. dollar after the Federal Reserve on Tuesday announced a dramatic half-point cut in its benchmark interest rates. While aimed at shoring up U.S. credit markets, the cut further weakened the dollar against other currencies by reducing returns on dollar-denominated investments. Even before the rate cut, the Canadian dollar experienced a summer of record highs. Canada, a major oil exporter, has benefited from soaring crude prices and a strong economy. Oil prices surged into record territory Thursday as the weakening U.S. dollar fueled buying by making futures cheaper for foreign investors. “The Canadian economy that once used to be the sleepy little resource backwater of the North American economy is certainly turning the tables on its big brother in a hurry,” said Jeff Rubin, chief economist and strategist at CIBC World Markets. The United States, meanwhile, has suffered a collapse of much of its housing market and a worsening credit crunch, prompting the Fed’s dramatic action this week. The central bank is far less concerned about the value of the nation’s currency, however, said Michael Woolfolk, senior currency strategist at the Bank of New York. “There’s a conspicuous silence coming from the Fed with respect to the value of the dollar,” he said. A lower currency typically fosters worries about inflation, but the U.S. dollar’s decline over the last year has been too gradual for the Fed to consider intervening by raising interest rates, Woolfolk said. The U.S. currency plummeted to a new low Thursday against the 13-nation euro, which traded above $1.40 for the first time since it was introduced in 1999. The euro rose as high as $1.4098 Thursday before falling back to $1.4076, up from $1.3964 late Wednesday. The $1.40 level has long been viewed as a key benchmark in terms of driving the euro toward becoming a reserve currency of choice – a position long held by the now-weakening dollar. The dollar was down across the board Thursday, dropping to a nine-year low against the Indian rupee amid strong demand from foreign funds investing in India’s booming economy. The rupee rose to 39.92 per dollar in intraday trading, breaching the 40 rupees-per-dollar mark for the first time since May 1998. The dollar also dipped against the British pound, falling to $2.0099 from $2.0025 late Wednesday, after U.K. retail sales in August rose by 0.6 percent from July. The U.S. currency fell against the Japanese yen to 114.44 from 116.09 late Wednesday.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! On Thursday, the U.S. dollar reached 1-to-1 parity against the Canadian dollar for the first time since November 1976. That means one Canadian dollar now buys one U.S. dollar, so a bottle of maple syrup could cost an American as much in Toronto as it does in New York. The U.S. dollar also fell Thursday to its lowest level ever against the 13-nation euro and to a nine-year low against the Indian rupee. Its decline means Americans will pay more for imports and trips to Paris, Rome, Bangalore and Toronto. It also may drive overseas demand for U.S. goods and help raise profits at U.S. multinational corporations. A lower U.S. dollar diminishes the spending power of American tourists while attracting foreign visitors who seek cheaper accommodations and shopping. Daina Jefferies planned to take advantage of weaker American dollar Thursday, exiting Macy’s at the Walden Galleria Mall in the Buffalo suburb of Cheektowaga, about 10 miles from the Canadian border. “I just bought the same things I bought last week in Toronto for half the price,” she said, adding a couple of bags to a collection already in the back of her car. “I’m going to go home and return them. I knew I was coming so I thought I wouldn’t take the tags off. Now there’s no way I’m keeping it because it’s twice as expensive.” last_img read more

Frank Girardot: Real-life Mexican mob not ‘Sopranos’

first_imgFrankie Buelna of Bassett took a bullet to the gut at a sports bar in Pomona this month. Jimmy Palma of San Gabriel got shivved on Death Row in San Quentin in 1997. Jose Uribe of Rosemead took a shank 40 times to various parts of his body and was killed in county jail in 1993. All three had something in common – an affiliation with La Eme, otherwise known as the Mexican Mafia. All three deaths likely came from crossing the gang leaders. La Eme, Spanish for the letter “M,” as in Mafia, was organized in the early 1940s. Its first leaders were gathered from East Los Angeles street gangs. The gang grew up in the 1970s and by the 1990s controlled most of Southern California’s street trade in illegal drugs. Gang members in Whittier, San Gabriel, El Monte, La Puente, Pomona, Baldwin Park, Pico Rivera, Montebello and El Sereno began paying “taxes” on their drug sales and taking part in the loosely organized group. The ties were further revealed in 1995 when the federal government brought a Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations, or RICO, Act case against 22 suspected members of the group. Many had long-standing ties to area gangs like El Monte Flores and Bassett Grande. About that time, reporter Robert Morales and I wrote a series of articles about how La Eme called a halt to drive-by shootings in all area barrios. The idea was to keep the cops out of neighborhoods because their presence was slicing into drug profits. The results were pretty dramatic, and Uribe was one of those who paid the price for violating the edict. He pulled two drive-bys on a rival in violation of the order. A couple of days after arriving in the county lockup he was assassinated. Sangra gang member Jimmy Palma’s demise came from violating another edict: Never kill children. He was convicted of doing just that. Palma and Richard Anthony Valdez of West Covina had been ordered to kill Anthony Moreno of El Monte. They did. They also killed Moreno’s sister, her 5-year-old daughter, her 6-month-old son and a family friend. As for Frank “Frankie B” Buelna, the verdict is out. Tony Rafael, who writes at inthehat.blogspot.com and recently published a book titled “The Mexican Mafia” detailing the history of the gang, summed it up like this on his blog: “What’s behind his killing? Too soon to say,” he wrote. “It may be politics eating up the old-school shot callers or maybe it was a personal,” he wrote. “There’s more to this, but we may not know for a long time. Or maybe never.” frank.girardot@sgvn.com (626) 962-8811, Ext. 2717 Frank Girardot is city editor of the San Gabriel Valley Tribune.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREPettersson scores another winner, Canucks beat KingsThere’s a whole history of the gang and tales of colorful characters like Joe “Pegleg” Morgan and Rudy “Cheyenne” Cadena. But make no mistake, these guys are not “The Sopranos.” The shot callers don’t live in fancy suburban homes and drive expensive SUVs. They aren’t the type that make appointments with leggy shrinks to discuss their mother fixations. In truth, La Eme is a violent gang run from inside the state prison system. And it has long-standing ties to the San Gabriel Valley. As far back as the 1970s, murders in the area were attributed to the gang. In one case in 1970, a woman identified as a police informant was killed in Monterey Park. A note that read “Eme” was taped to her body. A few years later, another Monterey Park woman headed to Sacramento to testify about La Eme before the state Legislature. She was met at the airport, shot in the head and dumped in an irrigation ditch at the side of the road. last_img read more
