1-0 PBA finals lead not safe – Magnolia Hotshots

first_imgMagnolia Hotshots’ Rome dela Rosa, Rafael Reavis and Ian Sangalang ganged up on Alaska Aces’ Mike Harris in Game 1 of the 2018 PBA Governors’ Cup best-of-seven finals at the SM Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City. PBA PHOTO MANILA – If there is one team that knows a Game 1 victory in the best-of-seven finals series is not a guarantee of a PBA championship, it should be the Magnolia Hotshots.Two conferences ago, the Hotshots drew first blood in the 2018 PBA Philippine Cup finale with San Miguel Beermen. But the latter went on to win the next four games to clinch the crown.In the ongoing 2018 PBA Governors’ Cup titular showdown, the Hotshots again took the 1-0 advantage after shooting down Alaska Aces, 100-84, in the series-opener on Wednesday evening at the SM Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City.Hotshots head coach Chito Victolero said their experience against the Beermen would serve as a lesson for his crew not to be complacent of the Aces ahead of Game 2 tonight at the Smart Araneta Coliseum. “We are happy to win Game 1 but this is only the start of the series. After (Wednesday) night, we need to prepare hard for Game 2. Our mindset is do-or-die,” said Victolero.Added the former Mapua Cardinals mentor: “There’s a long way to go. Hindi kami dapat mag-relax. Kailangan naming mag-push pa because it’s a best-of-seven series. Isa pa lang nakukuha naming.” Andy Mark Barroca and Jiovani Jalalon, who both played a key role in the Hotshots’ Game 1 victory, agreed that they should be prepared for the planned comeback of the Aces in Game 2.“Maganda lang ‘yung depensa namin (noong Game 1) and ‘di lang maganda ‘yung opensa (ng Alaska). Next game magbabago ‘yan, kailangan namin trabahuhin,” Barroca said.Jalalon added: “Hindi namin alam gagawin ng Alaska sa Game 2 kaya kailangan prepared kami. Nanalo kami ng Game 1 pero hindi pa tapos ‘yung laban, kasi ganoong-ganoon din ang nangyari sa amin noong Philippine Cup.”/PNlast_img read more

Arsenal thwart Man Utd as De Gea departs

first_img0Shares0000Arsenal’s midfielder Theo Walcott celebrates after scoring from a deflection during the English Premier League football match between Manchester United and Arsenal at Old Trafford on Sunday.MANCHESTER, May 17- Tyler Blackett’s late own goal compromised Manchester United’s hopes of automatic Champions League qualification as Arsenal drew 1-1 at Old Trafford in the Premier League on Sunday.The hosts took the lead when Ashley Young crossed for Ander Herrera to volley home, but Arsene Wenger’s side earned a point in the 82nd minute when Theo Walcott’s shot nicked off Blackett and looped over United substitute goalkeeper Victor Valdes. The result kept Arsenal two points above United in third place in the table and the FA Cup finalists can secure a Champions League group-stage berth by winning at home to Sunderland in their game in hand on Wednesday.Liverpool’s 3-1 loss to Crystal Palace on Saturday meant that United were already guaranteed at least a place in the Champions League play-off round, which was the minimum requirement when Louis van Gaal took up his post as manager last year.But of more pressing concern is the future of goalkeeper David de Gea, heavily linked with Real Madrid and who may have already made his final United appearance after being forced off by injury in the second half.Arsenal were unchanged for the sixth game running — the first time that has happened since January 1994 — and as has been their approach in recent major showdowns, they were content to let their opponents attack them.It led to a number of half-chances for United, with Young, Radamel Falcao, Chris Smalling — captain in Wayne Rooney’s absence — and Juan Mata all threatening.A slip at the other end by Phil Jones gave Arsenal a sight of goal, but despite being flat on his front, the United centre-back improvised brilliantly by swiping the ball away from Olivier Giroud with his head.It was United, though, who were making the running, and they took the lead on the half hour.Young stood up a cross from the left flank and with two defenders drawn to the giant Marouane Fellaini, Herrera met the ball flush on the volley at the back post to claim his eighth goal of the season.– Exit Falcao – Arsenal failed to muster a single shot on target in the first half and when Giroud’s knock-down fell kindly for Alexis Sanchez early in the second, the Chilean shanked a shot high into the East Stand.The game was a last chance for Falcao to impress the United fans after a frustrating loan spell from Monaco, but he spent much of the first half on his backside, the victim of a slippery pitch, and gave way for former Arsenal striker Robin van Persie on the hour.The apologetic wave Falcao gave as he left the pitch suggested he will not be seen at Old Trafford again in a United shirt.Giroud, Van Persie’s successor as Arsenal’s attacking figurehead, belatedly got in behind the United defence moments later, but after neatly beating Marcos Rojo to Mesut Ozil’s cross, he was thwarted by De Gea.“David de Gea, we want you to stay!” chorused the Stretford End, betraying their fear that the Spain international is destined for Madrid.When Arsenal did find a way past De Gea, Aaron Ramsey lobbing a shot over him from Sanchez’s pass, Rojo was on hand to hook clear.De Gea had to depart the fray moments later after an awkward landing, enabling the shaven-headed former Barcelona goalkeeper Valdes to come on for his United debut, four months after joining the club.Valdes had not played a first-team game for over a year and his first task was to pick the ball out of the net after Walcott’s shot nicked off fellow substitute Blackett and looped over him.Both sides had chances to win it, but Giroud could only shoot into the side-netting and Van Persie then ballooned over from Fellaini’s knock-down.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Bafana frenzy grips the nation

first_imgBafana Bafana has captured the hearts ofSouth Africans.(Image: Bongani Nkosi)  Vuvuzelas blared from the residential block of flats in Sunnyside, Pretoria’s lively, cosmopolitan suburb. South Africans hung out of their windows and burst from the corridors to celebrate and blow their favourite plastic trumpets. It was a short-lived moment, but one I had been expecting.South Africa’s national football squad Bafana Bafana was playing Denmark in a friendly match that day, 5 June, and I had decided to go loll at a park in nearby Troy Street – I was against the idea of being glued to a television screen.I knew the noise made by the throng of football fans in the area would be a pretty good indication of the score: I anticipated a spirited round of vuvuzela toots for every Bafana goal, and a collective sigh of “aaaaahs” if our opponent scored.I was kept in suspense for some time, but eventually I heard the eruption of noise. I knew very well our boys had scored a critical goal – the only one of the match. It came in the 76th minute from striker Katlego “Killer” Mphela.The celebrations went on for about three minutes at that stage, but the lasting sense of excitement came as the referee blew the final whistle. We had won.The vuvuzelas were out again, and the hubbub resonated throughout central Pretoria. Masses of young football fans, clad in their Bafana gear, celebrated the victory with their trumpets, song and dance. And cars whizzing past showed their support too, with mini South African flags attached to their roof tops.It’s scenes like these that show the pride in the 23-man national squad, which will play the opening match of the 2010 Fifa World Cup in a few days’ time.“We’re very elated and excited about what see throughout the country every day. Scores of people are wearing the Bafana jersey,” the team’s media officer Matlhomola Morake said.“[South Africans] are giving us courage,” Morake added. “We’d like to thank them and hope that this support will continue throughout the World Cup.”Support for Bafana is streaming in through various channels countrywide, as fans’ good-luck wishes are publicised on television, radio, newspapers, online social network sites and mobile phones. “That’s ayoba,” my colleague, Lesego Madumo, would say.‘We’re behind you’A day before the Demark clash, friends Mzukisi Zuzile and Masanda Nomeva joined hundreds of other South Africans outside Luthuli House in Johannesburg to show their confidence in Bafana Bafana. And they weren’t shy about where their allegiances lay: “We’ll support them up until the end of the World Cup. South Africans will stand by them,” Nomeva said.“Bafana Bafana must play their hearts out, knowing very well that the nation is behind them,” Zuzile added.The team has gone without a loss in its last 12 matches, making the craze well-deserved. Notable wins include the 5 June Denmark friendly and a 5-0 record defeat of Thailand a few days’ before.The group stage matches involving Bafana were sold out even before World Cup ticket collection centres were opened, another indication of strong belief in the national side.This also means that vuvuzelas will be out in full force. “We need the vuvuzela – it is our 12th man, and it will help us a lot,” Bafana coach Carlos Alberto Parreira said during his announcement of the final player selection on 1 June.The national team has been drawn into Group A to face Mexico, France and Uruguay. It’s been tipped to pick up at least six points, but must win the first clash against Mexico to achieve this, experts say.Promise of victoryPresident of the South African Football Association Kirsten Nematandani has promised the nation that Bafana will make it proud. He is confident that the team is well-prepared and ready to tackle the stiff competition.“The boys are ready … they will make us proud,” he said during the celebrations at Luthuli House.“Come the 11 June, Mexico won’t know what hit them.”South African politicians are showing they’re not immune to the Bafana frenzy either, with the ruling African National Congress (ANC) and official opposition, the Democratic Alliance, both sending out messages of support.“Bafana, you carry the hopes and aspirations of all South Africans …” said ANC chairperson Baleka Mbethe, on behalf of her party. “We have complete confidence and trust in you.”Good dose of Madiba MagicPresident Jacob Zuma and Fifa head Sepp Blatter are among the legions of World Cup fans who are hoping that Nelson Mandela will make it to the tournament’s opening ceremony at Soccer City on 11 June.It’s still not entirely clear whether the frail, 91-year-old statesman will be there, but Zuma has said it will be a bonus if he is.“We have hope that Mandela will be there,” said Mbethe.Mandela’s presence will undoubtedly give Bafana Bafana a good dose of “Madiba Magic” ¬– a term coined during the 1995 Rugby World Cup in South Africa, when the then-president donned a replica of the captain’s jersey to spread national pride and show his support for the host team.He did the same during the African Cup of Nations a year later, and many say this helped inspire the South Africans to win both tournaments. In recent years South Africans have increasingly used Madiba, Mandela’s clan name, as a fond term of reference.The Bafana World Cup squad was introduced to their former president on 3 June at a gathering at the Nelson Mandela Foundation in Houghton, Johannesburg. On this day too, Mandela chose to wear the captain’s jersey.last_img read more

SHRM Advocacy Team Spotlight – Shoals Chapter SHRM

first_imgSHRM Advocacy Team Spotlight – Congressional Recess Activity by Sandra Sockwell, Shoals Chapter SHRMThe Shoals Chapter SHRM was pleased to host Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL), who presented the Chapter’s program at Cypress Lakes Golf and Country Club in Muscle Shoals, AL, on Thursday, August 14.  Since he had visited our Chapter a time or two in the past, and we had visited him many times in regular SHRM Hill Visits, for this meeting we asked him to tell us what was going on in Washington, DC.  He spent most of the time explaining his views on immigration reform.  Very detailed, he laid out the reasons he and Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL) are so adamant that reform be approached in a comprehensive way.  We see that Rep. Brooks voted “Aye” on H.R. 2575, the “Save American Workers Act,” which defines full-time employees as working 40 hours instead of 30 as under Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA).  Also, Rep. Brooks was listed as a new co-sponsor, along with several others, of the “Legal Workforce Act” (H.R. 1772), subtitled, “Supplying Knowledge-Based Immigrants and Lifting Levels of STEM Visas Act.”  We believe these bills are good for America’s workforce and business—and that they support HR best practices. We are fortunate to have Rep. Brooks’ field representative, Laura Webb Smith, attend our Shoals Chapter meetings whenever her schedule permits.  When the A-Team sent the first reminder about the then-upcoming August recess, I phoned her immediately and she arranged for the Representative to visit us since he would be home on our meeting date.  It has been rewarding to have a field rep interested in helping an elected official realize how important the HR community is for supporting American business interests, as well as the interests of our several thousand employees represented by the Shoals Chapter’s members.  When SHRM was encouraging officials during Hill Visits to support making Section 127 of the IRS Code permanent a few years ago, we encouraged Rep. Brooks, an economist by education, to check out the bill to see if he could/would support it.  To our excitement, he signed on as a co-sponsor to that bill in the House!  And it passed.  Now that was a rush. We are encouraged to have such a relationship established with an elected official who values the input of his constituents and who arranges to visit us when District visits coincide with our meeting dates.  We heartily encourage all Chapters to try a similar approach.  Savvy staffers, we’ve found, blaze the way to an official’s schedule!Sandra Sockwell, Ph.D., SPHRShoals Chapter SHRMFlorence, ALSHRM A-Team Member To visit the SHRM Advocacy Team blog page, please click here.To visit the SHRM Policy Action Center, please click here.last_img read more

Schwartz on Network Services

first_imgrichard macmanus Listened to the latestGillmor Gang Show, with Jonathan Schwartz as guest. Sun’s Schwartz is one very smartcookie and a very effective speaker. The following quote in particular stood out forme:“We [Sun] want a world where there are tons and tons of interesting, interactive iPodequivalents – where people are doing interesting things with their devices attached to anetwork. Why? Because that creates more demand for network services, where we[Sun] can actually come in and do a good job at monetizing it with more scalablehardware, more affordable storage or better infrastructure software.” [at about 46 minmark]He goes on to talk about “lots of added value” on the network, citingtelecommunications carriers / network operators who give away mobile phones in order tosell services. He used the phrase “cost compression” several times near the end toemphasize that businesses (like Sun and Microsoft) need to find new business models onthe network.A lot of what Schwartz said (especially that last point) complementsthe ideas that came out of myinterview with Tim O’Reilly. Web services business models is a fascinating subject,but rather than focusing on the bigco’s I prefer to look at how the little companies arecreating new opportunities in this Web 2.0 world. Companies like Bloglines, Flickr, Feedburner, TheRobot Co-op.And by the way (as Jonathan might say), an eBook Reader is one device beggingto be attached to the network. One problem is that there’s noiPod-equivalent for eBook Readers. There are many reasons for that, which I won’t gointo right now. My point for this post is that there are many potentialbusiness opportunities for new companies to create network services around eBooks, shouldthe right platform ever be put in place (in the same sense that the iPod is a platform formusic services). 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Tags:#E-Books#web center_img A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Related Posts last_img read more

Ten Tips to Building a Better Resume

first_imgWhen you’re good at what you do, you don’t typically spend a whole lot of time thinking about what your next job might be, let alone the need to construct a better resume. In our work lives, we challenge ourselves to succeed and excel, and make the sacrifices necessary to set ourselves apart. We focus our efforts on building a future; working hard, working smart, and making the right decisions. We see this as the key to our professional development plan. But sound decisions aren’t limited to what we do on the job. What we do beyond the workplace can have a real and vital impact on how our careers unfold.As a vehicle for growth, crafting a quality resume can be one of the most important tasks in your professional career. Unfortunately, it also happens to be one of the most underrated and under-utilized growth tools for far too many of us.[text_ad use_post=’2385′]- Sponsor – The resume has to be more than an accumulation of dates and facts. It has to tell a story. It has to grab attention. It has to send a message. But it also has to be honest and genuine. It should be dynamic and confident. It should be organized and concise. It should show the building blocks of your career. It should help you stand out and stand tall. A better resume is intended to represent who you are as a professional. It is a point of first impression. As such, it demands your effort and attention to ensure that it fills that role.Every job search is a competition. A company is trying to match their needs with an individual that will best meet all of the different aspects that a particular position entails. Those involved in hiring decisions typically begin the search process by narrowing down the field of potential candidates from among those that have applied. Various strategies may be used to assist decision makers in the process, but one common denominator almost always comes into play – the resume.The resume is a visual and informational representation of the candidate throughout the hiring process. From entry-level positions to the pyramid heads for some of our largest companies, this remains a constant. If we want to set ourselves apart from the pack, then our efforts should start by building a better resume.Many minimize the importance of the resume in the overall hiring process. They surmise that a resume alone won’t get them a job. They rationalize away the need to provide too many details. They feel that once they get into the interview process, they can convince the hiring parties that their skills and capabilities make them the best choice. Let’s break this down:It’s absolutely correct to state that a resume alone won’t typically get anyone a job. Hiring decisions are progressive, and many considerations go into the overall process. However, while a better resume doesn’t guarantee a bad candidate a job, a bad resume can cost a good candidate an opportunity for the position of a lifetime.It’s true that too many details can hamper a resume. Readers can get bogged down by wordy descriptions and information overload, losing interest as a result. But it’s not the quantity of the words that we use, rather the quality of our statements that set the tone. Choosing our words wisely speaks volumes about our overall ability and understanding of who we are and what we do.The ability to interview for a job is an opportunity that we create, not a platform that we are granted. We have to earn it, often in more ways than one. The resume document represents a summary of our professional experience, achievements, and competency. If we’re not willing and/or capable of demonstrating our skills and abilities as part of a document that says so much about who we are, what message are we sending?Building a better resume forces us to actively reflect on our careers, reviewing all of the many events and decisions that brought us to where we are today. In many ways looking back helps us to move forward. A resume is a road map. It tells others where we’ve been, where we are today, and most importantly – where we want to go. By this, we don’t intend to imply there simply needs to be an “Objective” heading to begin the resume. We’re talking about the ability to bring the resume to life.As we constructively critique the path that we’ve traveled, it helps us to more clearly define the direction that we’re headed as well. By guiding the reader through our past and giving them a clear picture of where we are today, it helps to project where we’re headed. This allows them to better view us in the role that they are trying to fill and see the potential that we can bring to the position. Furthermore, it can give a glimpse into what lies ahead, and the value that we can offer their organization moving forward.What does your resume say about you? Is it a true reflection of who you are? Are you sure? What messages are you sending? What’s missing? “It’s good enough” is never the right answer. No one wants to hire someone that’s just “good enough”. The best don’t settle for “good enough” – they drive to set themselves apart. It doesn’t matter if you’re just starting your career, or leading a program, or somewhere between the two; until you have the right answers to all of these questions, you’re letting yourself down. Take the time to put together a resume that you can be proud of. Send a clear message. You’re worth the extra effort. You’re worth another look. Make sure that others think so as well.10 Tips to a Better ResumeFocus on truths, not tricks. Finding a job is about finding a match. If your resume doesn’t truly represent who you are, you’re only hurting yourself. A well-written resume helps build confidence and credibility in a candidate, but that only holds true when it is a true depiction of who we are. “Fluff” and exaggeration have a tendency to come to light at some point during the search process, and once credibility is lost, so is the opportunity.Use a resume format that grabs attention, and holds attention. It’s important that you choose a format that is visually appealing, but it also must be easy to read, and easy to follow. The reader must be able to segregate jobs, segregate skills, and segregate other valuable information about the candidate. The resume should be well organized, and allow the reader to take the different pieces that make up the candidate and put them together in a systematic way that paints a clear picture. Allow the decision maker to structure their thoughts in a way that helps them draw a conclusion – and the right conclusion.In the most basic of terms, the most important thing on your resume is your NAME. Your name should stand out, and be the first thing that people see when they look at your resume. Isn’t that the point to begin with? We want decision makers to see and remember our name, and who we are. That’s not to imply that it should be in big purple letters across the top of the entire document, but it should stand out. Use a font (typically 18-24) that is larger than the rest of the text.Use fonts for the text that offer a professional appearance and are easy to read. A resume shouldn’t look like a wedding invitation or a graduation announcement. Scripted or complex fonts should not be used for your resume.Don’t simply post a list of job descriptions. It’s not just the position that you’ve held that’s important, but what you’ve accomplished in that position that will set you apart. Represent your talents, skills and abilities! Did you make a difference? Did you build partnerships? Were you commended for your performance? Was there anything that showcased your abilities? Not if you don’t say so! Remember, if you don’t say so, it didn’t happen as far as anyone else will ever know.Choose information that best represents the role that you filled, and what you were able to do with it. What’s most important about a particular role? What’s important to say about what you did in a particular role? We typically won’t have the space to say all that we want to say, so we want to use our available space to send the best possible message.Use descriptive words that show action, responsibility, accountability, leadership, cooperation, and potential. Manage, develop, implement, supervise, lead, direct, train…Find power words that accurately describe your responsibilities.Education reflects a professional investment. Accurately and appropriately describe your education. For example, if you’ve graduated from college, make sure that you say so. “2005 graduate, University of (Anywhere USA); Bachelor of Science in Business Administration.” One of the most common places that individuals will embellish or misrepresent their background involves their education. If you’ve spent the time, effort and financial resources necessary to receive a degree, you’ve earned the right to display your commitment. Make sure that you do so.The proof is in the details. Proofread your resume for any potential errors in spelling or grammar. Ensure that dates are correct. Make sure to display complete contact information to include full address, phone number(s), and email address if available. As simple as it sounds, many will miss basic but crucial details that can cost opportunities.Keep your resume current. The best opportunities often come when we’re not looking for them. Waiting until a need or opportunity presents itself may lead to delays, mistakes or exclusions that can prove costly. Show the organization and foresight that comes with being prepared.For more information on finding a loss prevention career, visit www.lpjobs.com.

And seed funding in particular, according the report, is strong.VC funding dipped to $5.4 billion in the third quarter of this year, a five quarter low. But deal activity recorded its second highest tally in 8 quarters. Absence of mega deals, according to the report, hurt the funding total.
