One such incident was in August 2006 when Guimaras was devastated by a massive oil spill from the sunken MT Solar 1 spilling 2.1 million liters of bunker fuel in the island. Hundreds of Guimarasnons were displaced economically and their health suffered. Gov. Samuel Gumarin said the coast cleanup is a mechanism to protect the environment not just for today but for the generations to come. “We have to protect and see to it that ‘yung mga nangyari before ay hindi na mauulit. Ang mga kababayan natin dito sa Guimaras mostly sa shoreline. So kapag may mga incidents, mahihirapan talaga lalo na kung mayroon tayong mga evacuations,” Nuñez said during a cleanup in Guimaras on July 15. Around 80 personnel from several agencies and volunteers converged for a cleanup in Guimaras on July 15 in observance of the National Disaster Resilience Month. OCD-6 led the cleanup drive along the shorelines of Barangay Hoskyn, Jordan and barangays Sawang, Navalas, Tacay and San Miguel in Buenavista town. ILOILO City – The island province of Guimaras is vulnerable to disasters because it is surrounded by waters, according to Director Jose Roberto Nuñez of the Office of Civil Defense (OCD) Region 6. Volunteers from Philippine Coast Guard, Philippine Navy, Philippine Army, Philippine Air Force, Philippine National Police, Bureau of Fire Protection, Philippine Red Cross, Department of the Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management office and the Municipal Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Offices of the Municipalities of Jordan, San Lorenzo and Nueva Valencia, sectoral groups rallied for the common goal of collecting trash littering the coastline of Guimaras. Guimarasnons should safeguard their habitat that has nurtured them and source of their livelihood according to the governor./PN Guimaras is usually hit by calamities during the month of July and August, said Guimarin.
Facebook Twitter Google+ In a crowd of orange jerseys in the center of the turf field in Manley Field House, Randy Staats was nowhere to be found.Staats, an Onondaga Community College transfer, verbally committed to Syracuse last February but was not at the team’s media day on Monday. SU head coach John Desko said he couldn’t comment on Staats “until a letter of intent is signed,” and added, “I wish I could.”According to OCC head coach Chuck Wilbur, Staats is taking a winter class at OCC and can’t enroll at Syracuse yet.SU Athletics spokesman Mike Morrison echoed that in an email to The Daily Orange.“(Desko) is not permitted to comment on Randy until he matriculates,” Morrison said. “Along the same lines it would be premature to list him on the roster until that process is complete.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAt OCC, Staats helped the Lazers to a championship in each of his first two seasons and was named the National Junior College Athletic Association Player of the Year as a freshman. In that season he collected 57 goals and 82 assists, breaking the school’s all-time single-season scoring record.If his transfer process goes as planned, Staats will join an already stacked Syracuse attack featuring senior Derek Maltz, junior Kevin Rice and redshirt sophomore Dylan Donahue. Staats has two years of NCAA eligibility remaining.—Staff writer David Wilson contributed reporting for this story.

Pittsburgh Steelers strong safety Troy Polamalu , left, intercepts a pass intended for Miami Dolphins wide receiver Brian Hartline (82) and returns it for a touchdown during the second half of an NFL football game in Pittsburgh, Sunday, Dec. 8, 2013. (AP Photo/Don Wright)As the Steelers rapidly approach the roster trim down moment of 4pm on Saturday, we take our final look at the team and break down the secondary.This unit is often maligned for their shortcomings in the passing game despite having future Hall of Famer Troy Polamalu and longtime veteran Ike Taylor. There are several players vying for just a few spots and this is how I see it breaking down.The two starting cornerbacks will be Ike Taylor and Cortez Allen. Taylor is playing in what most likely will be his final year. He’s long been the teams’ top corner and he enters this season as that guy again. He’s clearly lost a step over the years and it may be a tall task to ask him to guard guys like AJ Green and Torrey Smith but he’s going to be given the first shot to do so.Cortez Allen will be the second corner on the field and he’s a bit of a bi polar figure when he’s out there. At times he looks great, capable of covering anyone anywhere. Other times he looks like he couldn’t cover my four year old. He’s playing for a new contract so it’s do or die time for him.William Gay will be the nickel back and is capable of getting the job done in that position. He’s certainly not a guy that the black and gold want starting full time as he often gets burned deep but he’ll be the next man up should either Taylor or Allen go down.Rookie Shaquille Richardson will be the fourth cornerback. I’m hopeful he gets a good bit of playing time because he appears to be the future of this unit and any experience he can gain will only help his development.The team also has Antwon Blake, Isaiah Green, Brice McCain, Dayonne Nunley, and B.W. Webb manning spots currently. I don’t anticipate any of them will be on the team come 4pm Saturday.The safeties are pretty obvious. Troy Polamalu is still the starter at Strong Safety and is in great shape. Polamalu should be here for two more years and I think he’s going to play at a high level in both of those seasons. He’s one of the best to ever suit up and he’s still capable of making jaw dropping plays.Newly signed Mike Mitchell will replace Ryan Clark at the free safety position. He’s an upgrade over Clark and will be a high impact play making ball hawk. The team will surely benefit from adding him to this roster.Will Allen is back for another season and is a top of the line reserve, capable of starting if needed. Allen makes plays and is a great asset to have on the team.Shamarko Thomas enters his second year and he looked very good through camp and pre season. The man they call “headache” can put on some of the best hits you’ll ever see. He’s not far away from being an every down player for this team and he’ll get more action this year and show you exactly why the Steelers like him so much.Robert Golden is a guy that may make the squad but he’s a fringe player. If the team elects to keep an additional offensive or defensive lineman, Golden could be the odd man out.Ross Ventrose will not make the squad.No matter how you break it down, this portion of the team is much improved in the safety department and very deep there too but they have some weaknesses at corner that could get exposed against the potent offenses the Steelers have to face this season. This unit will rely heavily on the linebackers making the big plays at the line and behind the line in order to help hinder the opposing passing attack.Mike Pelaia hosts the website Steel Nation Association www.steelnationassociation.com– Covering the Steelers and helping Children’s Hospital All Day Everyday.

0Shares0000American businessman Shahid Khan could be about to buy Wembley from the English Football Association © AFP/File / Adrian DENNISLONDON, United Kingdom, Apr 27 – American businessman Shahid Khan has said he will do “everything possible” to give Chelsea the option of using Wembley as a temporary home if his Sh 69bn (£500mn) bid to buy the iconic London ground is accepted.England’s governing Football Association confirmed Thursday that Khan, the owner of Chelsea’s local London rivals Fulham, as well as the NFL’s Jacksonville Jaguars, had made an offer to buy the national stadium. Tottenham Hotspur, like Chelsea a London-based club in the Premier League, are currently using Wembley as a temporary base while a successor ground to their White Hart Lane home is built.Chelsea want to redevelop and increase the capacity of their Stamford Bridge ground in west London.The Blues are set to vacate their home at the end of the 2019/20 season and it may be up to four years before they are able to return.Wembley’s 90,000 capacity makes it an obvious choice for Chelsea, particularly as the 82,000-seater Twickenham, the southwest London headquarters of English rugby union, has been ruled out of the running.Khan’s plan to stage even more gridiron games at Wembley, and maybe even base the Jaguars there permanently, could complicate matters for Chelsea.But Khan said he would welcome the Blues playing at Wembley — for the right price — having made it clear he has no intention of moving Fulham, pushing for promotion to the Premier League from the second-tier Championship, out of Craven Cottage.“Absolutely we would discuss it with them (Chelsea) and really encourage them because that is part of the tradition and stewardship of Wembley, just like with Spurs being there this season,” Khan told Friday’s edition of the London Evening Standard.“Chelsea would be welcome to use it“Obviously, they would be paying for it, just like Spurs did, but I think it is really important because our goal is to get the usage up and that would be part of it,” he added.“Could it happen for four years? Obviously you would have to move things but from our viewpoint, we would love that to work.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)
With a full roster at his disposal for the first weekend this summer, Humboldt Crabs manager Robin Guiver is feeling a lot more comfortable with the way his pitching staff is coming together.This week the Crabs returned home from a 2-3 road trip to sweep a pair of midweek games from their county rivals, the B52s, a team that took two of three from them last summer.And the Crabs sealed both victories late with some dominating pitching from the same bullpen that had leaked runs on the road the …
SAINT JOHN, N.B. — The deputy mayor of Saint John is calling for a four-month ban on negative news about New Brunswick’s port city.Shirley McAlary says the city has a great quality of life, and the city council, the public and the media need to tell a positive story to convince others to move there.McAlary says she was speaking somewhat in jest when she suggested, during a growth committee meeting this week, that there be a four-month ban on negative news.She says the media has to tell stories like the Oland murder trial, and recent explosions at the Irving refinery and at a metal recycling plant on the waterfront.But she says national stories don’t always need to dwell on things like the city’s declining population.McAlary says the city needs to do a better job of marketing itself, and that starts with what Saint Johners tell others about their city.The Canadian Press
OTTAWA — The federal Liberals have used their majority on a House of Commons committee to block an opposition attempt to investigate the leak of confidential information about applicants for a seat on the Supreme Court of Canada.Conservatives and New Democrats wanted the Commons justice committee to find out who leaked information about a dispute between Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and former attorney general Jody Wilson-Raybould over who should be named chief justice of the top court.But a motion to launch an investigation has been defeated by a vote of 5-4.The Canadian Press and CTV reported last month that Wilson-Raybould recommended Glenn Joyal, chief justice of Manitoba’s Court of Queen’s Bench, to become chief justice.According to sources, Trudeau was concerned about her choice because he believed Joyal favoured a conservative, restrictive approach to interpreting the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.Trudeau ultimately named sitting Supreme Court Justice Richard Wagner to replace retiring chief justice Beverley McLachlin.The Canadian Press
