We want to make sure he stays healthy.”ADVERTISEMENT Power forward Japeth Aguilar sat out Game 1 against Rain or Shine after suffering from a sore left Achilles but he remains positive that he can join the Gin Kings for the remaining games.“Hopefully I can come back, because there are still a lot of games to be played,” said Aguilar after Ginebra’s 102-89 win Sunday at Smart Araneta Coliseum. “I hope I can come back by Game 2.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkSPORTSTim Cone still willing to coach Gilas but admits decision won’t be ‘simple yes or no’Aguilar averaged 17 points, 6.91 rebounds, and 1.91 blocks after he got hurt in Game 2 of the quarterfinals against Meralco.Fortunately for Ginebra, center Greg Slaughter was able to pick up the slack putting up 20 points and pulling down six rebounds against the Elasto Painters.

And it wasn’t just that the Cardinals rallied from an 11-9 first-period deficit, but how they did it. Whittier’s suffocating defense forced the Lancers into eight turnovers in the second quarter and held them to just six shots. Meanwhile, Rick Kamayatsu scored all 10 of his points, including a pair of 3-point baskets, the first giving the Cardinals a 16-14 lead and the second making it 27-15. The Cards eventually increased their lead to 18 points before taking a 35-19 halftime advantage. La Serna coach Randy Villegas should bottle whatever he told his players in the locker room. They responded with a 15-2 run midway through the third quarter that featured Mike Acosta’s eight points and a 3-pointer from Eric Navarro to close the gap to 41-34. Zozaya had a three-point play and two 3-point baskets and was the only Lancers player who scored in the fourth period. It was his steal and transition basket that finally tied the score 47-47 with 1:10 remaining in regulation. Whittier then missed on three close-in attempts to win it in the final seconds. La Serna is 18-5 overall and 9-0 in league. Santa Fe is 19-7 and 8-1. Whittier held a 35-19 lead over La Serna at halftime, thanks to a 26-7 scoring advantage in the second period. WHITTIER – Eddie Zozaya scored 13 of his game-high 17 points in the fourth quarter to gain a tie for La Serna High School, and the Lancers went on to defeat host Whittier 51-49 in overtime in their Del Rio League boys basketball game Wednesday night. The win clinched at least a tie for the league championship and set up a showdown with Santa Fe, which trails by a game after defeating winless El Rancho on Wednesday. Zozaya continued his string of points with two free throws to start the extra period, but Whittier’s Michael Hudak tied it again off Kamayatsu’s assist. La Serna’s John Castillo missed the front end of a bonus free-throw opportunity with 1:18 to play, but a Whittier turnover set up Vinnie Hiatt’s layup with the winning points with 26.1 seconds left. Whittier had one last chance with four seconds remaining. Hudak attempted to inbound the ball from near midcourt with an alley-oop pass to Ed Kim, who had circled the perimeter to the backside. But the pass was too high and too long. firstname.lastname@example.org (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3046 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Arturo Vidal in World Cup action for Chile against Brazil 1 Manchester United have been dealt a blow in their pursuit of Arturo Vidal – with Juventus chief Giuseppe Marotta insisting he will stay in Turin.The Chilean midfielder is right near the top of Louis van Gaal’s transfer wish-list but, having signed a new contract with Juve back in December which ties him to the club until June 2017, Marotta is confident the 27-year-old won’t be going anywhere.“All the requirements are there for Vidal not to leave before the end of the transfer window,” Marotta told Gazzetta dello Sport. “The contract extension he signed has made more solid the marriage between Juve and Vidal.“Vidal has always said he wanted to stay here and we are more than happy to keep him.”Vidal, who has also been linked with Arsenal, moved to Juve from Bayer Leverkusen in the summer of 2011.He made 32 league appearances for the Bianconeri last season, scoring 11 times and setting up five others to greatly contribute to Juve clinching their third successive league title.
1 Roma have taken steps to hijack Parma’s proposed move for Tottenham striker Emmanuel Adebayor, according to reports in Italy.The Italian giants are looking to bolster their attacking options by securing the striker on a loan deal until the end of the season, with Marco Borriello set to leave the club.The Togo forward has lost his first team spot to Harry Kane at Tottenham and the north London club will be willing to listen to offers to get him off the wage bill.Adebayor, whose contract runs up at the end of the season, has not featured since the home defeat to Stoke back in November and was allowed to head back to Africa on compassionate grounds a few weeks later.Reports in Italian newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport claim Roma are now leading the chase to sign the former Arsenal and Manchester City striker, but will have to move quickly as Parma have also expressed an interest.

0Shares0000Chelsea defender Marcos Alonso celebrates his goal against Newcastle © AFP / Oliver GREENWOODLondon, United Kingdom, Oct 19 – Frank Lampard urged Chelsea to build on their rise into the Premier League’s top four after Marcos Alonso clinched a 1-0 win that silenced the Newcastle fans who jeered the Spanish defender at Stamford Bridge.Alonso’s blistering strike ended Newcastle’s stubborn resistence with 17 minutes left and provided the perfect riposte to the taunts from the stands. The Chelsea left-back spent the second half of the 2013-14 season on-loan at Newcastle’s arch rivals Sunderland and played in a derby win at St James’ Park.The Magpies supporters clearly hadn’t forgotten as they booed him throughout Saturday’s match.But Alonso’s first goal since April gave him the last laugh as Chelsea made it five successive victories in all competitions.After winning just two of their opening eight games under Lampard, the Blues are beginning to find their stride.The mature way Lampard’s young side kept probing and found a way to beat obdurate Newcastle bodes well for the future.And for only the second time in Lampard’s 13 games in charge, Chelsea kept a clean-sheet as the Blues boss celebrated just his second home league.“In the first half we were a little bit safe, a little bit slow. We didn’t play with enough urgency or risk. That was the message at half-time,” Lampard said.“We were much better in the second half. You saw spirit and energy in the team. We could have won by more to make the last 10 minutes more comfortable.“We had a bit of a problem in the game and we solved it. The players need to be brave and confident. I’m pleased with that.”While a title challenge is likely to be beyond Chelsea, they look well equipped to challenge for a top four finish.“We know we want to be challenging in the top four. From the slightly difficult start we had, it is a good sign we are moving in the right direction,” Lampard said.“That must only give us the hunger to move on because football can change in an instant.”Newcastle have now won just one of their last 26 league visits to Chelsea after a defeat that punctured the momentum from their 1-0 win against Manchester United before the international break.Steve Bruce’s side are back in the relegation zone and the Newcastle boss blamed referee Andre Marriner.“I thought it was a blatant foul on Joelinton in front of us in the lead-up to the goal. When you are coming here you need those decisions to go for you,” he said.“We have had a really tough start in terms of who we have played. Now we’ve got a run of games against teams who will be around us. It is a vitally important time.”– Homegrown charge –Fikayo Tomori, Ross Barkley, Mason Mount, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Tammy Abraham all featured for Chelsea, making it five English players in their starting line-up in the Premier League for the first time since February 2013.Mount led the charge of Chelsea’s homegrown youngsters when the midfielder collected Hudson-Odoi’s pass and spun for a fierce shot that was pushed away by Martin Dubravka.Alonso earned a yellow card for a crunching challenge on DeAndre Yedlin, prompting a barrage of abuse from the Newcastle supporters crammed into one corner of the Shed End.With nine goals already this term, Abraham was inches away from getting into double figures when his header from Willian’s corner crashed against the bar.Abraham was narrowly off-target with another towering header from Chelsea’s eighth corner.Hudson-Odoi was a constant menace with his mesmerising bursts and when his cross found Pulisic, the United States winger was denied by Dubravka’s fine scrambling save.Chelsea’s pressure finally told in the 73rd minute when Hudson-Odoi teed up Alonso, unmarked inside the Newcastle area, for a powerful effort that flashed under Dubravka’s hand into the far corner.0Shares0000(Visited 11 times, 1 visits today)
Donegal County Council is reminding householders and businesses that the burning of waste often known as “Backyard Burning’ is illegal.Backyard burning is the uncontrolled burning of waste, which is frequently carried out in backyards in a barrel or open pile, or even waste burned in open fires, ranges or other solid fuel appliances.It also applies to burning waste in a ‘home or garden incinerator’ that are frequently advertised. This activity in any of these situations is illegal. Backyard Burning is illegal and is an offence under the Waste Management Act 1996-2008, the Air Pollution Act 1987, and the Waste Management (Prohibitions of Disposal by Burning) Regulations 2009.BonfiresIt is also an offence for householders or businesses to supply waste materials to parties collecting materials for ‘Bonfire Night’, and, it is illegal to give waste to a person that does not have a waste collection permit.Donegal County Council is currently undertaking an audit of certain businesses to ensure that there is compliance under the relevant legislation and to ensure that waste materials are not supplied for the practice of burning on bonfires. While traditionally wood and straw were used on bonfires in recent times materials such as tyres, mattresses, furniture, plastics, metal etc are burned on bonfires. Providing waste material for burning on a bonfire is a committing a criminal offence.The burning of waste is not only harmful to the environment but it is also harmful to our health. When waste materials are burned on a bonfire or in a backyard environment harmful dioxins are created and released into the air that we breathe. ExemptionsThere are some exemptions under the regulations where burning is permissible. These are only in the case of some agricultural wastes namely uncontaminated (free of dangerous substances, preservations, or other artificial impregnation or coating) wood, trees, tree trimmings, leaves, brush, or other similar waste generated by agricultural practices. The disposal of these permitted wastes by burning are permitted provided the farmer looks at all other reasonable options before burning and gives advance notice to the Local Authority before burning.

Besiktas are planning an ambitious move for Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany, according to reports in Turkey.The Turkish champions are believed to have a huge transfer war chest this summer ahead of their return to the Champions League group stages and have lined up a £25m bid for the Belgian. City are extremely unlikely to sell their club captain this summer, who is determined to make an impression on new head coach Pep Guardiola. According to Fanatik, Besiktas are still set to go ahead with the bid as they aim to turn Kompany’s head with the view of perhaps signing him in a future transfer window. Kompany has been at City since 2008 and has led the club to two Premier League titles as captain. Vincent Kompany 1

Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Jennifer Aniston is cold. So she’s bundled in a bulky terry-cloth robe, covering the slinky, spaghetti-strap black dress she’s been poured into. Oh, well. Still, it’s a charming expression of the regular-gal persona that’s been the actress’ stock-in-trade for the dozen years since “Friends” first hit the airwaves. Ask everyone who’s ever worked with her, and they confirm that it’s a big part of Aniston’s real-life demeanor. But approachable and disarming as she is, Aniston’s far from un-self-conscious. Can’t afford to be, after more than a year’s worth of tabloid scrutiny— first about her busted marriage to Brad Pitt, then a suspected romance with Vince Vaughn, her co-star in “The Break-Up,” which comes out today. Neither party will confirm or deny a romance. But now, with Pitt’s girlfriend Angelina Jolie giving birth a week before Aniston’s movie comes out, it’s paparazzi fodder again. “What’s in the papers and all that silly stuff — unless you sit down and do an interview, it’s not real,” Aniston says, shrugging beneath her cozy folds of white cotton. “That’s all fabricated. There’s a thread of truth here and there, like, the characters are usually correct. But what the content is is usually beyond fabricated silliness. “But there’s a lot of privacy that you have,” she adds, irrepressibly upbeat about a sore subject. “It’s maybe hard to go from here to there, and there are days when I’m really fine with it and days I’m frustrated with it. “But at the end of the day, I know that it will die down, I know that this will not be interesting. People will finally — hopefully — turn their heads to things that are of greater importance that are happening in our world.” The timing of filming “The Break-Up” in Chicago last summer, right about the time that Pitt and his “Mr. & Mrs. Smith” co-star, Jolie, were making loads of news, is not lost on her. “The irony of it? Well, yeah,” she says with, naturally, perfect comic timing. “At the time, it was something that I thought about. … When I first got the phone call that a movie called ‘The Break-Up’ was coming, I kind of laughed and thought, ‘Well, that’s funny.’ Then, sure enough, it was. I found it like a sign or something to do it. “It was, in a way, a cathartic thing. I felt very lucky, in a way, that it came to me. If this had come to me at any other time in my life, I don’t know if I would have been able to really get it at the level I wanted to as an actor.” Vaughn, who produced and oversaw the writing of the project he likes to describe as an anti-romantic comedy, knew from the beginning that Aniston was the only woman for him. Er, that is, for his character in the movie. “What are you alluding to?” the “Wedding Crashers” cutup responds to a question about his chemistry with Aniston. He keeps the answer strictly professional. Well, almost. “When we were developing the screenplay, she was the only actor that I had in mind because she’s so good with comedy, and she’s also a very good actor,” Vaughn says. “And she has a quality to her that’s inherent, where she’s very likable. There’s a warmth to Jennifer, and these characters are both very flawed. So it’s important to have that. And when we started the rehearsal process, I was really impressed right away with her acting, her timing, all of that. “And, yes, I did like her right off the bat as a person as well. I think she’s terrific.” One thing the movie allowed Aniston to do, for a while anyway, was play someone who’s not so terrific. Though Vaughn’s Gary Grobowski is no prize, her Brooke Meyers can be manipulating, vindictive, whiny and just plain mean. “Hee-hee! Yeah, it was great for me,” says Aniston, who — from “Friends” to broad comedy hits such as “Along Came Polly” and “Bruce Almighty” to darker indie affairs like “The Good Girl” and “The Object of My Affection” — almost always plays gals whose fundamental niceness causes them no end of trouble. “It felt good just to get pissed off. I’m not a yeller or a fighter by nature, so it was fun to play it.” Apparently, it was just acting. “For someone who’s been around so long and had such success in television and in movies … Jen is just so unaffected by it,” says “Break-Up” director Peyton Reed. “And given the extra level of scrutiny she was under last summer when we were shooting, I was constantly impressed by the grace with which she dealt with it. She’s very, just, calm about it, and never, never brought it to work with her.” “When I see bad behavior from actors or actresses, I just don’t understand it,” Aniston says. “Y’know, I have great people that surround me, and nobody will let me get away with anything. Meaning, if I ever did start to become affected, an army of my friends from the days of yore would instantly pull me right back to the ground. There’s nothing that’s more unattractive than bad behavior from somebody that takes themselves too seriously.” There are plenty of stars who think they have a right to take themselves “too seriously,” but Aniston has been around the business a long time. Her father, John Aniston, appeared for years on the daytime soap “Days of Our Lives,” and her mother, Nancy Dow, did some television in the 1960s, before Jennifer was born. Aniston, however, won’t go for such simple explanations to explain her attitude. “I don’t know where it comes from,” she says. “I mean, I’m sure that everything from your childhood has a lot to do with who you are. But I think it has more to do with the fact that I wasn’t successful really quickly. I was a waitress, and again, in my group of friends that I’ve had for a long time, only two of them are actresses. I keep giving my friends all the credit.” The love of acting comes naturally enough, though. “Break-Up” is the fourth movie Aniston has appeared in since last November. For various reasons, “Derailed,” “Rumor Has It …” and “Friends With Money” did not come close to the box-office success “Bruce” and “Polly” enjoyed, though. “Unfortunately, they just timed-out that way,” she says of the closely bunched releases. “Of course, you hope that there’s not that little space between them. But I love working, I love my job, I love acting. I’ve felt really fortunate that I had great opportunities to be in movies. Some were great, some were not, but that’s movies. “But I’m just sort of going where I’m still allowed to go. I’m just happy that I’m still being asked back, I guess.” With quite a bit of pressure for “The Break-Up” to hit big, some have suggested that the Vaughn-Aniston romantic tease may be an attempt to replicate the interest Pitt and Jolie’s similar coyness whipped up for “Smith” a year ago. But it’s more likely that Aniston is just trying to protect whatever privacy she can. “I don’t know if the world’s real problems are just too much for people to focus on, so it’s easier to go to a soap opera,” she muses. “But I also think that we have a weird fascination with reality — with reality TV and with reality-reality, whatever’s being handed to you as that reality is.” An integral part of one of the last great sitcoms, Aniston sounds more disturbed about the direction TV is taking than anything else. “Networks are lazy; no one’s producing great television, interesting shows,” Aniston says. “All they’re doing is cheap and easy. You just put a camera in somebody’s house who’s willing to let their life be exposed. “It’s a weird lull that’s happening when there’s no creativity. We’re basically feeding the basest interests, the lowest common denominator and lowest parts of our intelligence. And at a time when we really need to be on our game. People need to be thinking; there’s a lot going on that needs attention.” So don’t expect Aniston to know much about Taylor Hicks. “I don’t watch ‘American Idol.’ Or ‘Wife Swap’ or ‘Nanny Swap’ or ‘Dancing With the Stars’ or ‘Cooking With the Stars.’ I’ll watch a movie or I’ll play a game or see my friends or read a book.” — Bob Strauss, (818) 713-3670 email@example.com
