Applauding that, the three day tournament held over the weekend was the culmination of much planning and preparation for the unique tournament.“With 16 teams and approximately 600 players the first year of this tournament exceeded expectations,” Angua said.He added that all teams thoroughly enjoyed the event with the All Blacks legend’s widow Nadene Lomu leaving the country overwhelmed by the tournament and participation of Papua New Guineans in Rugby.“Teams from as far away as Bougainville, Morobe and Western provinces attended as well as a host of local teams. And the event received good media coverage as well that we are also thankful to the media,” Angua added.A huge thank you goes to all the sponsors especially to the New Zealand High Commission who helped over the weekend who without them it would not have been possible and to all the visiting teams who attended.“We are looking forward for next year as we wrap up the successful Rugby Union 2016 year with a legacy for PNG Rugby Union.”
Jayson Castro came off the bench to finish with 21 points and 10 assists for the KaTropa, who unveiled new recruit Terrence Romeo.The formal GlobalPort playmaker wound up with 11 points against the team that drafted him five years ago.With the outcome already settled, the game almost got out of hand with altercations between between Jessie Saitanan and Malcolm White, Jeremy Tyler and Mo Tautuaa, and Joseph Gabayni and Roger Pogoy, among others.“It’s nice the PBA is allowing physicality, but if it gets to a point where players hurt each other, then we should question that,” TNT coach Nash Racela said.With Romeo inserted into the lineup, the KaTropa had the luxury of putting Castro on the bench to start the game. The veteran playmaker came out strong in TNT’s opening game, although Racela believes his role goes beyond what he does on the court.ADVERTISEMENT Truck driver killed in Davao del Sur road accident P16.5-M worth of aid provided for Taal Volcano eruption victims — NDRRMC LATEST STORIES Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew “What’s key now is Jayson’s guidance on players like Terrence (Romeo),” said Racela. “He’s embracing that role of mentoring younger players just like the way Jimmy (Alapag) guided him in the past.”Racela is tempering his expectations on Romeo, who sat out almost the entire Philippine Cup while he was with GlobalPort due to an injury.“It’s acceptable, this is just Terrence’s fourth game and he’s not yet in playing shape, but he did what we expected him to do,” said Racela.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next ‘Stop romanticizing Pinoy resilience’ MOST READ Cardinals edge skidding Maroons; Nationals drop opener Volcano watch: Island fissures steaming, lake water receding PBA IMAGESFree agent pickup Jerramy King formed a lethal 1-2 combination with Rashawn McCarthy as Columbian Dyip whipped Blackwater, 126-98, on Sunday night for a rousing debut in the PBA Commissioner’s Cup at Smart Araneta Coliseum.King, who hardly saw action for Rain or Shine last season, exploded for a career-high 30 points, while McCarthy, part of the deal that sent top pick Christian Standhardinger to San Miguel, scattered 22 points for the Dyip, which scored only its second win of the season.ADVERTISEMENT 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 Green group flags ‘overkill’ use of plastic banderitas in Manila Sto.

Dear Editor,Since its launch in 2015, mention has often been made about the Suicide Helpline, although stats are hard to come by, even though releasing them could be an incentive for others to use the helpline. In any case, saving a life can’t solely rely on the person who is at risk — who will most probably never call the helpline. The person who would call the helpline is that someone else who is able to recognise that the person is actually at risk; someone such as a gatekeeper or lay counsellor who is trained to identify suicide warning signs.And this is so necessary in the context of Guyana, where there seems to be a pattern of ignoring even the most obvious signs on the part of family and friends of those at risk, and/or dismissing suicide ideation as jokes and/or not being serious. Gatekeepers would also help others be able to identify the warning signs, and thus enable circles of understanding that all such signs must always be taken seriously, even if it means erring on the side of caution.The issue of gatekeepers brings to the fore the concept of collaboration, which has been touted over and over and over by all and sundry, including the Government, as the way to go in small economies like Guyana’s, which cannot afford to roll out the comprehensive mental health and suicide prevention infrastructure and supports. Collaboration is best exemplified by the Gatekeeper’s Programme, which arms communities with lay counsellors who can take proactive action to not only prevent the act of suicide, but to also address various forms of abuse.The Caribbean Voice is getting ready to launch a national lay counsellor Train- the-Trainer programme next year. Since the Government is best positioned to ensure the logistics necessary for such a programme, we will be reaching out to the requisite Government ministries, agencies and departments to seek partnership, including help to bring on board NGOs, FBOs, CBO, local government agencies and mass-based organisations to ensure not only that the trainers are provided with the skill sets and knowledge base, but to also support them as they then seek to train gatekeepers in every community, once they receive their training. In effect, this can and should be a totally collaborative effort.Once signs are identified, scope must also be provided to such individuals to talk more, and to give them a response that’s nonjudgmental and really supportive. But this, too, calls for some basic training in empathetic communication, and here again, gatekeepers come into play.In effect, we need to deepen the mental health literacy of our nation to the point where people become self-aware of the triggers and improvers of their own mental health, like they are with their physical health. And this process starts with gatekeepers who can train others in their communities.At a recent forum on suicide in Guyana, mention was made of the need for community-based services to tackle suicide. Well, this process can start with gatekeepers, who are the most critical cog in the wheel of suicide prevention at the community level. That is why, too, TCV is also extremely happy that the Pan American Health Organisation (PAHO), on September 17, launched a virtual course on suicide prevention for primary healthcare workers in the Americas, including the Caribbean.The course, which is free, self-directed and available in English on PAHO’s Virtual Campus for Public Health (https://www.campusvirtualsp.org/en/), is divided into seven modules, and is based on the World Health Organisation’s (WHO) Intervention Guide for Mental, Neurological and Substance Use Disorders (mhGAP-IG), that include evidence-based interventions to identify and manage priority mental health disorders, including self-inflicted injuries and suicide at the first level of health care.The Caribbean Voice urges Government to take the lead in providing scope to ensure that, in addition to all primary health care workers, all social workers, welfare officers, teachers and outreach personnel — such as those engaged in youth or women empowerment — take this training.We encourage activists, NGOs, faith-based organisations and community-based organisations to also use this opportunity to gain the critical skills and knowledge to enhance their suicide prevention activism. And we also urge all media to publicise the link and a message urging the general public to take advantage of this training.Speaking of the media, we note that Trinidad & Tobago recently launched its National Media Guidelines for Responsible Reporting on Suicide.While we are aware that significant changes in such reportage have been effected by the local media, reportage is still not where it should be. So we urge the crafting and launch of similar guidelines for the Guyanese media. PAHO has been instrumental in providing relevant training to the local media, and its assistance can be harnessed in putting these guidelines together.Sincerely,The Caribbean Voice

“I am happy for this additional year,” said Aguero in a club statement.“My idea was being here for 10 years. I’ve been here for seven years, it’s going to be 10 when the contract expires.“This was the main reason I signed. I’m very happy because they have treated me very well since the first day I got here.”City manager Pep Guardiola — who has left Aguero out at times in the past two years with young Brazilian Gabriel Jesus getting the nod — said he had not needed to change the striker’s mind about delaying his return to Argentina.“I didn’t convince him, he decided himself,” said Guardiola at his Friday press conference.“So I say thanks for the trust he has shown in us, like Vincent Kompany and David Silva.”Guardiola, though, believes that Aguero — who earns a reported £220,000 ($288,000) a week — staying 10 years at the same club will be a thing of the past.“Before it was easier to find players to stay their whole career in the same club,” said Guardiola.“They want to live new experiences, and it’s not bad if they want to discover new languages and learn other cultures.“It happened with Sergio: Argentina, then Madrid and then here. He’s an important player for the club, not just for the team.”Txiki Begiristain, Manchester City’s director of football, said Aguero retained his status as one of the club’s most pivotal players.“He has been so important to this club since his arrival in 2011 and he remains at the forefront of what we are want to achieve in the coming years,” said Begiristain.“We are fortunate to have had one of the best strikers in the world at our club for so many years.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Aguero has scored a club-record 204 goals for Manchester City © AFP/File / Lindsey PARNABYLondon, United Kingdom, Sep 21 – Manchester City’s record goalscorer Sergio Aguero extended his stay with the Premier League champions on Friday, signing a one-year contract extension.The 30-year-old Argentina international — who broke the record last season and whose tally stands at 204 — put pen to paper on a deal that will see him through to the end of the 2021 season and postpones his stated desire to finish his career with Independiente back in his homeland.

Letterkenny Town councillor Gerry McMonagle has condemned those who planted a bomb under a car in a local housing estate this morning.Gerry McMonagleNobody was hurt after a booby-trap style device was planted under a jeep in Manor Park View around 4am.Gardai have sealed off the area and a number of houses have been evacuated. Cllr McMonagle, who lives locally, says he does not understand why the device was planted.“The reality is that this is a housing estate and totally innocent people including schoolchildren could have been killed.“I am not sure for the reasons behind it but such actions cannot be justified.“We hear of these things happening in the north but not in Co Donegal and not on a busy housing estate in Letterkenny. “I would appeal to anyone who knows anything about this incident to contact the Gardai,” he said.
