To be a member of that group, it’s really an honor to be there,” he said.Despite the achievement, Tenorio wants the honor to be set aside as he focuses on his bigger goal with the Gin Kings.However, he’s discounting the possibility of climbing up the ladder as his career goes on that could get him to the top 10.“We’ll see. We’ll be able to achieve that if we just continue playing every game. We just have to pray that there won’t be injuries, but we’ll make it as long as we’re playing,” he said.ADVERTISEMENT Photo by Tristan Tamayo/ INQUIRER.netCracking the top 15 of the PBA’s career assists ladder, LA Tenorio couldn’t help but accept the realities that come with the every milestone.“That means I’m getting old,” Tenorio said with a chuckle after dishing out seven dimes in Ginebra’s 104-97 victory over GlobalPort on Sunday to pad his career assist total to 2,464, good for 15th all-time.ADVERTISEMENT Brian Heruela arrival bolsters Phoenix backcourt, defense 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 Jarencio laments late-game meltdown in loss to Ginebra Steam emission over Taal’s main crater ‘steady’ for past 24 hours MOST READ Redemption is sweet for Ginebra, Scottie Thompson Scottie Thompson also worthy of Finals MVP, thinks Cone Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ’a duplicitous move’ – Lacson OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ’a duplicitous move’ – Lacson Jiro Manio arrested for stabbing man in Marikina LATEST STORIES View comments Meralco ‘never the same’ after Almazan injury in PBA Finals Judy Ann’s 1st project for 2020 is giving her a ‘stomachache’ Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

Bartica Regional Hospital gets CT ccanner

first_img– $11M water ambulance commissionedResidents of Bartica, and by extension Region Seven (Cuyuni-Mazaruni), and other nearby regions can now breathe a sigh of relief knowing that a computerised tomography (CT) scan will soon be operationalised.The $11 million water ambulance which has been commissioned for BarticaAccording to the Department of Public Information (DPI), after the complete installation of the CT scanner at the Bartica Regional Hospital, persons in need of scans from Regions Two (Pomeroon-Supenaam), Three (Essequibo Islands-West Demerara), Seven, Eight (Potaro-Siparuni) and 10 (Upper Demerara-Berbice) can access the service free of charge.Dr Edward Sagala, Regional Health Officer of Region Seven emphasised the importance of having such a critical piece of equipment functioning in that part of the country.“This is a sensitive piece of equipment which is a necessity in any modern medical institution. With medical specialists now operating and working at the Bartica Hospital this will facilitate a speedy diagnosis of conditions that are complex so that we can institute necessary medical treatment.”Dr Sagala also reflected that “persons who needed this service, would have had to go straight to the Georgetown Hospital or a private institution and there they had to spend money, it’s not cheap, it’s expensive,” he said.Public Health Minister Volda Lawrence stopped at the hospital while in Bartica to receive an update regarding the installation of the machine. She was pleased to learn that the residents of Bartica and nearby villages will soon be able to access the service.The building, which houses the CT scanner, was constructed to specification at a cost of $30 million.Regional Health Officer of Region Seven, Dr Edward SagalaRAD-AID in 2016 handed over two new CT scanners valued at approximately US$200,000 to the Public Health Ministry, which at that time determined that one will be placed at the Bartica Regional Hospital and the other at the New Amsterdam Regional Hospital.Meanwhile, Bartica received a newly commissioned water ambulance. The emergency water transport was handed over to the town by Public Health Minister Volda Lawrence. It was built by local contractor Sunrise Marine Incorporated.The water ambulance, costing approximately $11 million, is equipped with all that is needed for the vehicle for its use in the effective delivery of healthcare services in the riverine regions.This ambulance will mainly transport emergency cases and referrals from Bartica to Parika after which the patient is transported from Parika to the Georgetown Public Hospital.Also, training for river ambulance operators has started and continues to ensure they effectively deliver the requisite services.According to Regional Chairman Gordon Bradford, the need for the water ambulance was cited since 2006, however, priority was never given to the means of transport by the previous Administration.“We have been back and forth with this particular project and it started since 2006 since then we visualised that we needed a river ambulance… This ambulance will effectively evacuate persons not only from Bartica but those nearby riverine communities.”During a brief commissioning ceremony, Minister Lawrence delightfully noted that it was Bartica, and by extension the entire region, which made the step for the acquisition of the water ambulance.She added that it will not only aid in referrals from Region Seven but also Regions Two, 10 and islands in Region Three. More importantly, Minister Lawrence highlighted that the regional hospital is staffed with specialists and geared with services that cater to cases requiring emergency intervention. These include high-risk maternity cases, accidents and emergency cases among others. The water ambulance will simply aid in transporting those patients in need of a higher level of care.Deputy Regional Executive Officer, Holbert Knights said after long periods of consideration, “we finally have been able to get the right boat with the right equipment.” Regional Chairman Bradford agreed that the commissioning of the water ambulance is a dream come through.It was also noted that the operation of the water ambulance will eliminate the need for the region to contract and rent boats as was the norm for many years. With gratitude, Bartica Mayor Gifford Marshall said, “The people of Bartica now have another reason to celebrate.”He explained that over the last three years, the region’s health sector has undergone tremendous improvement and Bartica has benefited significantly.last_img read more

Boston Marathon Explosions — A ‘Live-Tweeted Disaster’

first_imgA Comprehensive Guide to a Content Audit Tags:#live news#social media#twitter Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verification Two explosions at the finish line of the Boston Marathon have killed 2 and injured more than 100, with reports constantly changing as new updates flood in.As is now par for the course, news of the disaster broke first on Twitter, and the microblogging service remains an unparalleled source of breaking news and first-hand accounts — not to mention media criticism of news outlets that jumped ahead of the facts in their reporting.The presumed attack has since been documented in thousands upon thousands of user generated images and videos  spread across the Web through social media channels. (Among other things, this Vine video appears to show one of the first explosions.) Spencer Ackerman over at Wired.com called it a “live-tweeted disaster.”Boston-area and federal authorities have also embraced Twitter to get out public-safety messages — for instance, asking people to stay away from the affected area and not to congregate in large groups. Police have also requested video from spectators: (Atlantic Wire’s Alexis Madrigal looks into how investigators might analyze contributed video.)The Boston Globe received a video of the finish line during the initial explosion, embedded below. This video doesn’t contain any graphic images of injured individuals, but it does feature the explosions, the onset of immediate panic in the crowd and police and marathon volunteers rushing to assist victims. Related Posts The Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videos Google has also just launched a person-finder web tool to help those trying to reach friends and family members.Of course, any disaster aftermath has to feature its share of incomplete, misleading or just plain wrong reports. (It may take days to figure out which category some news reports fall into.) For instance, at 4:55pm, the Associated Press reported that officials had shut down cell service in Boston to prevent any further explosions:Only, that is, to walk back the story about 45 minutes later:Similarly, early reports that a third bombing took place at the JFK Memorial Library are apparently false. The library’s official Twitter feed reports that the incident was a fire that started in the mechanical room, and that all staff and visitors are accounted for and safe. nick statt Facebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro…last_img read more

Break comes just in time for injured Krishna

first_imgAfter one-and-a-half years of intense training and competitions, Krishna Poonia has finally got a break and the ace discus thrower is recovering from her knee injury before she gets back in action in January.It was her knee injury during the Commonwealth Games which had almost forced her to shelve her Asian Games plans but the Athletics Federation of India (AFI) insisted her to go ahead for the Guangzhou event where she bagged a bronze medal.Ever since her Commonwealth Games gold medal, Krishna has been on a felicitation spree and is also consulting various doctors for her injured left knee, which she believes cost her a gold at last month’s Asian Games.With her sights firmly set on the London Olympics, Krishna said she is not ready to risk her knee any further and wants to be back in training in the first week of January.”Initially, I thought it (knee) would require surgery but we have consulted various doctors and they have suggested a few exercises,” Krishna told M AIL T ODAY on the sidelines of the Stree Shakti function where she was felicitated for her recent achievements.”I think it shouldn’t take more than 15- 20 days before I am fully fit and I hope to get back to training from January 1,” she added.Krishna sustained the injury in her second attempt at the Commonwealth Games but she had done enough in the first throw itself which was good enough to get her a gold. At the Asian Games too, it was her first throw which won her a bronze as after that her performance kept deteriorating.advertisementHowever, Krishna is well aware of her abilities and is confident that her best is reserved for the London Olympics in 2012.”It was a 61.94m throw that won me a bronze medal but during training sessions I have had better throws than that and that too on consistent basis.”I am sure I’ll be able to win a medal at the next Olympics and we have already planned a roadmap for that because I want to peak at the right time. It is very difficult for athletes to maintain their form throughout the year.”Though the World Championships in August is not what I am aiming for but it will be ideal to gauge my preparations,” Krishna said.But the journey hasn’t been easy by any means for Krishna, who hasn’t been able to spend much time with her nine- year- old son.last_img read more

Mahela Jayawardene to take over from Rikcy Ponting as Mumbai Indians head coach

first_imgMahela Jayawardene has been appointed the head coach of Mumbai Indians from the next season of the Indian Premier League. The franchise announced on Friday that he will replace Ricky Ponting, who had been with the Mumbai franchise for the past four seasons. Ponting had spent four long years with the team in various roles – as a player, an advisory role under John Wright and then he took over as the full time head coach from Wright.Ponting was appointed as the captain of the Mumbai Indians in 2013 and the former Aussie skipper played a key role in Mumbai’s first triumph. He selflessly dropped himself from the squad as he failed to perform, paving the way for Rohit Sharma to lead the side to their maiden IPL title. He also guided Mumbai to their second title in 2015 as the head coach, he oversaw a dramatic turnaround after Mumbai lost the first five matches of the season.As Jayawardene takes over from Ponting, he will hope to replicate the success as well. The 39-year-old Sri Lankan batsman brings a lot of experience with him on the table. The former Sri Lanka captain recently served as the batting consultant for England ahead of their Test series against Pakistan in the UAE.Jayawardene played for Kings XI Punjab, Kochi Tuskers Kerala and Delhi Daredevils in the IPL.Paltan, our new Head coach, @MahelaJay has a special message for you.
