  • Give DOJ more control over BuCor, Drilon says

    first_imgDrilon said instead of “administrative”oversight, he wanted DOJ to have “direct control and supervision” over BuCor. MANILA – Sen. Franklin Drilon is mulling tofile a law that will give the Department of Justice (DOJ) more control overBureau of Corrections (BuCor) following the reported corruption incidents inthe New Bilibid Prison. Senate Minority Leader Franklin Drilon calls 1PACMAN party-list Rep. Mikee Romero’s accusations as “misplaced and baseless.” IAN PAUL CORDERO/PN Under Republic Act No. 10575 or the BuCor Actof 2013, the BuCor was defined as a “line bureau” and a “constituent unit” ofthe DOJ. “This is a form of control but it is only adepartment order. We need to amend the law to provide a legal basis for this,”added Drilon./PN DOJ secretary Menardo Guevarra said theCongress must pass a law that will give “stronger power” to BuCor after it wasremoved in 2013 and merely retained its administrative supervision to thecontroversy-hit agency.center_img “I am beginning to think that the law itselfthat supposedly strengthened the BuCor (and consequently diminished DOJ’scontrol over it) may have to be reviewed,” Guevarra said. “This is one of the loopholes that we shouldlook into. The corrupt officials in the BuCor took advantage of the law thatgave too much power to the bureau to the extent that there is no more check andbalance,” Drilon said. The department exercises “administrativesupervision” over the bureau “except that the DOJ shall retain authority overthe power to review, reverse, revise or modify the decisions of the BuCor inthe exercise of its regulatory or quasi-judicial functions.” “We should give the DOJ direct control andsupervision of the BuCor consistent with Department Order 953 which requiresthat the release of heinous crime convicts must have prior approval of theJustice secretary,” Drilon said. last_img read more

  • Cadden’s MLS switch worse than Aribo’s Rangers move — Robinson

    first_imgRelatedPosts Joe Aribo vows to bounce back from injury Joe Aribo out of Super Eagles friendlies Gerrard gets Aribo, Leon Balogun boost Oxford manager Karl Robinson insists Chris Cadden’s move to the MLS is “10 times worse” than Joe Aribo leaving Charlton for Rangers. Former Motherwell winger Cadden, who had been playing right-back for the U’s, has been recalled from his loan at the English League One side by Columbus Crew and had a £1 million value placed on his head. However, former Vancouver manager Robinson believes the 23-year-old’s career will suffer by playing in America and has compared his departure to Aribo’s transfer to Ibrox last summer. At the time, Charlton gaffer Bowyer said: “It’s a shame if he [Aribo] gets pushed to somewhere where it is not going to benefit him in his football career.” On Cadden, Robinson said: “At 23 and going to play in MLS, I don’t get it. “Bow [Bowyer] got criticised for Joe Aribo going to Glasgow Rangers, but I think this is 10 times worse. “Chris Cadden is a top Championship right-back and will grow with this club. “You don’t know where his end game is, he’s still really young. Maybe I’m being harsh, but it’s only because I care for the boy. “At no stage do I want anyone to think this is Chris Cadden, because he’s openly said he’d love to stay here.”Tags: Chris CaddenJoe AriboMajor League SoccerOxfordlast_img read more

  • Poch happy Adebayor stayed at Spurs

    first_img Press Association A divisive figure at White Hart Lane, Adebayor looked set to leave the club before Monday’s transfer deadline, having plumped for a loan move to West Ham. However, the intervention of chairman Daniel Levy means the highly-paid striker will remain at Spurs for the rest of the season – a decision which pleased Pochettino, despite having been ready to see Adebayor leave. “And now, all together, we need to try to get the success because we are in a key moment. “We need to put out the bad things, the bad energy, we need to try to help each other and try to get the success. This is the important thing.” Adebayor may have been ready to leave for West Ham, but Pochettino says Aaron Lennon was the only player to explicitly say he wanted to go. “It’s easy to identify the players who aren’t happy, because they’ve not played much in the last few months,” Pochettino, who was prepared to let Younes Kaboul and Etienne Capoue leave, said. “But we are a club and when you sign a contract as a player you need to understand that you don’t sign to play, you sign to train. “And then the club signs a manager or head coach to pick the players. This is football.” It will be interesting to see whether those close to an exit will feature in Saturday’s north London derby – ahead of which Pochettino expressed his admiration for Arsenal counterpart Arsene Wenger. “It is difficult for me to imagine the next season, so 18 years – woah,” he said. “This is why I admire so much Arsene because it’s not easy for a manager to stay in the same place a lot of time like him.” Pochettino also admires the “perfect” balance Wenger has struck between young players, current stars and experienced older heads. “We need to settle the basis for the future,” the Spurs head coach added. “When the new stadium comes, we need more income, more business, very good for our fans, nice stadium. “It’s all much better, but we are focused on the present too. We have a plan for the present and for the long-term. This is what the people need to know. “Football is present because Saturday is a big game for us. It’s no more than Saturday, and for our supporters too. “We need to understand that we need to get the good results now to develop in a very good way our future, like a club.” “I knew he could go and I would have been happy to play with two strikers for the rest of the season,” the Tottenham head coach said. “Possibly, we could have used Nacer Chadli or Erik Lamela, but the first thing was that I wanted to keep Adebayor in the squad. It is important to clarify that. “After, when the players want to play more or some club calls them, and they want to leave because they feel they can play more, it becomes a club decision. “It is not only about love. In the past it was difficult for him and what was happening.” Adebayor has started just one game since early November due to time sidelined through injury, illness and a period of compassionate leave. However, Pochettino says he has a “long way” to go to recover his fitness and, just as importantly, confidence – something which had been hit by his own supporters. Adebayor says the recent booing aimed at him by Tottenham fans made him “very sad” and Pochettino has echoed his calls for everyone to move on. “It’s important that the fans forget the past and I think he explained why he made the comments,” the former Argentina defender said. Mauricio Pochettino never wanted Emmanuel Adebayor to leave and has urged everyone connected with Tottenham to put the past behind them. last_img read more

  • Tried Copying Smriti Mandhana, Didn’t Work: Riyan Parag

    first_imgJaipur: Seventeen-year-old batsman Riyan Parag, who rose to fame after he helped Rajasthan Royals beat Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in one of their fixtures in the recently concluded Indian Premier League (IPL), has admitted he admires leading woman batter Smriti Mandhana and tries to copy her style of batting.Mandhana is among the few batters Riyan Parag admires and takes inspiration from.“My dad is one of them (idols). He has to be the first one. Then there’s Sachin sir and Virat Kohli. And in women’s cricket, I’ve followed Smriti Mandhana since she used to wear glasses and play with a BAS bat. I was really young then. I love the way she times the ball and caresses it through point. I’ve tried copying that as well but it didn’t work out,” Parag said on the sidelines Red Bull Campus Cricket event in Jaipur. Perhaps, Riyan Parag is one of the few male cricketers who admit of being an ardent fan of women cricketers.Riyan Parag also revealed about his experience of playing in the IPL. “I have learnt a lot from my first IPL stint. In IPL, you play with your idols and legends of the game. Just to share the dressing room was surreal,” Parag said. He further said that he doesn’t like to bat in the nets as he feels ‘locked’. “Actually, I hate batting in the nets. It’s just the closed environment. I feel someone has got a hold of me and I am like captured and locked.”“Even before the matches, I try to hit as many sixes as possible,” he added.When quizzed about his most challenging moment from this year’s IPL, Parag said: “The time I felt really nervous this season was before the match against Kolkata Knight Riders. I don’t have a great record at the Eden Gardens. Before the KKR game, I’d scored nine runs in each of the three innings I’d played there. So the knock I played that day is the most special ones for me this season. I feel pressure brings out my A-game,” he said.In that match, Rajasthan Royals were in serious trouble chasing 176 but Parag (47 off 31 balls) first joined forces with Shreyas Gopal and then with Jofra Archer to leave KKR fans at the Eden Gardens stunned.When asked if Riyan Parag reads about the comments made on social media about him, Parag said, “Yes, I do. I had this conversation with Ben Stokes after the Mumbai Indians match this season, where I did well and contributed with the bat. I asked him if he reads comments online and he said that he does no matter how he performed on the field that day.“You can’t really hide from that. If you post something on Instagram, people are going to tell you things to your face. And you’re bound to read those comments. But like I said, it’s all about keeping things simple and not thinking about it too much,” he added. IANS Also Read: SPORTS NEWSlast_img read more

  • ICC World Cup No homecoming ceremony for New Zealand?

    first_img For all the Latest Sports News News, ICC World Cup News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. Wellington : New Zealand Cricket Tuesday said an immediate homecoming ceremony for the national team has been put on hold due to players arriving in batches at different times. Blackcaps came agonisingly close to winning a maiden World Cup before England were crowned champions on the basis of their superior boundary count — 22 fours and two sixes to New Zealand’s 17 after both the regulation 50 overs and the super over of an epic final ended in ties.”We’ve been in conversations with the Minister for Sport and Recreation, Grant Robertson, and are mindful of the Prime Minister’s (Jacinda Ardern) enthusiasm for a welcome-home celebration,” NZC chief executive David White was quoted as saying by stuff.co.nz.”At the moment, however, with some players arriving back at different times, some not arriving back at all, and others having alternative playing commitments, it’s just not practical,” he added.White acknowledged the calls from New Zealand public for a grand welcome ceremony befitting the team’s lion-hearted performance in the showpiece.”Hopefully, given the interest surrounding this, we can organise something appropriate in the weeks to come.”Opting to bat, New Zealand had put up a modest 241 for eight. In reply, England ended at the same score leading to the one-over eliminator. In the Super Over, England batted first and the duo of Ben Stokes, who kept the hosts in the game with a brilliant 84 off 98 balls, and Jos Buttler made 15. New Zealand also ended at the same score but for the loss of one wicket, paving the way for an English victory on boundary count. New Zeland finished 2019 World Cup as runner ups. Kane Williamson was awarded as player of the tournament. England won 2019 World Cup. center_img highlightslast_img read more
