Of course, there’s also [NBA standout] Jordan Clarkson.”Now, Guiao’s problem is trimming that glut of talent to 12. But it’s a problem that he’s willing to deal with every day and one that will take a backseat once he tackles his bid to return to Congress.“I feel like there’s so much unfinished business that I want to continue,” said Guiao.He plans to build on the growth of Clark’s international airport and make it even more accessible to the public (a railway line is expected to be extended northward with a stop near the airport). He also hopes he can turn Clark into a major sports hub so it could be “utilized as out national training center.”Philippines head coach Yeng Guiao. Photo from Fiba.comAnd he wants Clark ready for a huge goal of the Philippine Sports Commission (PSC) and the Philippine Olympic Committee. “There’s already a plan to bid for the 2030 Asian Games. I witnessed the Asian Games in Jakarta already. Tayo naman.”More importantly, he plans to pursue a petition he filed at the Supreme Court that will compel the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corp. (Pagcor) to remit the full cut of the Philippine Sports Commission’s share of its revenue pie. So far, Pagcor has been releasing only half of the PSC’s annual share of its revenues.“If that full share is released, retroactively, I estimate the PSC will get around P12 to 13 billion,” Guiao said. “We won’t have any reason anymore not to win an Olympic gold.”It’s quite the stretch to hope that the gold will come from basketball. But even with insurmountable odds facing Gilas Pilipinas, Guiao hopes to shepherd teams that will lay it all down for the country. And it’s not even about rewriting the identity of the squad.“Laban. Puso,” Guiao said. “That’s always our battle cry. That identity should always stay with us. Our opponents may be bigger or better. We may lack preparation at times. We may not have all the players we want on a roster. But we should always play with the same heart and commitment.” If he fails in a congressional bid, he pours his focus on NLEX in the PBA and Gilas Pilipinas in the Fiba World Cup qualifying windows. If he wins? “There are a lot of advocacies I started that have gained momentum already and I don’t want that momentum to lose steam.”And with a buffet table of PBA stars and naturalized players at his disposal, the options are dizzying.“It’s a good problem,” said Guiao during a guesting at Sports IQ, the Inquirer’s live multimedia sports talk show.“I was surprised,” Guiao said of the number of players released by their PBA teams and who showed up for the first practice of the national squad for the Asian Games. “Even the injured players came. For me, I know now that it’s not true that players would hold back [from the national team] or that they’re looking out for their big contracts. It’s unfair to the players to say that.”He even has a smorgasbord of naturalized players to select from: Andray Blatche, Christian Standhardinger, Stanley Pringle and even Marcus Douthit, “if we really wanted to, he can suit up.”ADVERTISEMENT Spending an hour with national coach Yeng Guiao is like talking to a human flowchart. He looks at options like they were defensive schemes thrown at him by an opposing team.Is Kai Sotto leaving the country for a European team? “If he is, we really have nothing we can do about it,” he said. If not? “We have to give him an option, an environment, that will give him the best opportunities here.” 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

NHA’s Tugbeh C. Tugbeh in readiness for today’s encounter against LEC CurrentEvery era has its heroes and Tugbeh C. Tugbeh of the National Housing Authority (NHA) will lead a team of soccer players in a rescue attempt of Shelters of the NHA in their second match at the Barclay Training Center field in central MonroviaThey had lost 3-1 to GAC in their first match.Playing against GAC-Auditors on Tuesday, Tugbeh C. Tugbeh came in the game when his team was losing and when TCT saw an opportunity, in the cause of the game he went for it and he was the engineer of the lone and consolation goal secured in their 3-1 loss.The Shelters before their last game on TuesdayMany of those who watched the game against GAC-Auditors claim that because of the downpour of rain the field was slippery and as a result players and defenders were falling down in their attempts to kick or pass the ball to their team-mates.They said this was confirmed by ELBC reporter Kolubah Zayzay that it would seem that Tugbeh C. Tugbeh (TCT) had been watching the practice matches of President George Weah, for TCT imitating the Chief Executive moved in an attempt to provide support to his team-mates but changed his mind when he saw an opportunity.A ball from a teammate met TCT on the run, and this was near their opponents’ danger zone. With the ball in his possession, his team-mates dashed about taking positions with the hope to receive the ball. At the same time, GAC-Auditors’ defenders, at least two of them, were moving in to put stop to the threat that was coming towards them. Like President Weah in action, Tugbeh C. Tugbeh elusively put the ball to his left, and the two defenders misjudged him and thought he was going in the opposite direction.In a split second, Tugbeh C. Tugbeh had displaced the two defenders and was in the clear. GAC’s goalkeeper was said to have opened his arms as if he was pleading for help from his defenders or from above.At this time, many of the NHA employees, most them women, were calling for a goal. “TCT we want goal,” they cried.Someone in the crowd also cried “Football, football, football,” an appreciation for what TCT was demonstrating to his opponents. However, GAC defenders could not let him be, and in the melee, caused the foul that caused the penalty that became the consolation goal for NHA.This afternoon, TCT will lead his boys to take on LEC Current in one of the crucial matches of the day at 11 am. Both NHA and LEC lost their first matches and each team wants to save their image.In all due respect, LEC Current played a great game against star-studded Ministry of Youth of Sports who had players such as Thomas Kojo, Jonah Sarwieh, and a host of Liberia’s former soccer international players.LEC had several chances but could not make good of their opportunities and therefore ended their game 1-2 in favor of MYS. Now going into this afternoon’s game, they may be going all out not only to save their name but to ensure that they win the match to get their three points and with NHA’s desire to secure the three points, the competition will be tough and fans expect a good game.In the second soccer game, Ministry of Justice (MOJ) will play Monrovia City Corporation (MCC) and the third soccer game is between Liberia Water & Sewer Corporation (LWSC) and the Environmental Protective Agency (EPA).Meanwhile, in the kickball games, this morning at 9 am, LEC will play against NHA in the first game and MOJ will take on MCC at 10 am and the LWSC will play EPA in the third kickball game at the Barclay Training Center field at 11 am.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)

The Grim Reaper marches down Letterkenny Main Street to mark the proposed death of the NowDoc service. Pic by Northwest Newspix.The much-needed NowDoc service for various parts of Donegal will not now be cut.It follows a ‘live test’ conducted in both Gaoth Dobhair and Carndonagh to see if the areas could do without the overnight service there.The test led to huge protests across the county in recent weeks with more than 15,000 people signing a petition against the plans.Local politicians, the HSE and service provider Caredoc attended a meeting today to discuss the situation. Following the review and analysis of the data gathered during the eleven week review period and the two week test period, the Caredoc GP Clinical Lead has recommended that the current GP deployment arrangements remain in place in West and North Donegal, for the red eye periods, as per the existing service arrangements and the parties will now agree the required arrangements to continue the resourcing and delivery of these service arrangements.The recommendations contained in this report are supported by Caredoc, the GPs and the HSE, who will now work together on the implementation of these recommendations.In accordance with the recommendation of this report, there will be no change to the current service arrangements.Out of hours GP services will continue to be provided in Letterkenny Derrybeg, Carndonagh, Mountcharles and Carrick on Shannon, on weekdays from 6pm until 8am on the following morning. In relation to weekend and bank holiday cover, the NoWDOC Centres at Derrybeg, Mountcharles and Carrick on Shannon will continue to provide 24 hour cover on Saturdays, Sundays and bank holidays. The NoWDOC centres in Letterkenny and Carndonagh will continue to provide services from 12 noon on Saturdays and 24 hour cover on Sundays and bank holidays.The move has been welcomed by all local politicians including Minister Joe McHugh and Pearse Doherty who issued statements on the decision.PATIENT POWER!
