Gilas team ‘not one-dimensional,’ says Reyes

first_imgRead Next Kiefer Ravena lived up to his hype and showed everyone a glimpse why he has long been coveted as one of the brightest young players in the country. Roger Pogoy emerged as a reliable three-and-D option for Reyes and earned his place in the starting five. And finally, Matthew Wright connected from distance and drilled three triples to finally put away the visitors on Monday.“You have to make sure you have a lot of weapons, but more importantly, you have to make sure that you can go to them at the right time. That’s just the way it is,” said Reyes.“We know that we have some players that we can go to inside the paint at the post. When we play the bigger teams, we have a big advantage in quickness. Obviously, that’s not going to be the same when we play the bigger teams like Japan, Korea, Chinese Taipei because they’re just as quick as us, so we have to find another advantage,” said Reyes.“That’s just basketball. The good thing is even if we’re not shooting well from three-points, we found a way to grind out a W. Hopefully, that’s a sign of the progress and evolution of this team.”With Gilas going on a three-month breather before facing Australia and Japan in February, Reyes said that the 2-0 record doesn’t really give the team much momentum.ADVERTISEMENT Photo from Fiba.comComing out of the first leg of the 2019 Fiba World Cup Asian qualifiers with a pair of wins, Gilas Pilipinas coach Chot Reyes is proud to see how versatile the team is with its current lineup.“We built this team so that we’re not one-dimensional,” Reyes said. “In the past, we live and die with the three, but that’s the reason why we have the players that we have.”ADVERTISEMENT MOST READ The Philippine team gutted out a 77-71 victory over Japan in Tokyo last Friday, and followed it up with a 90-83 squeaker over Chinese Taipei at home on Monday to go 2-0 in Group B.Through those victories came positive development from the players he picked as Reyes’ expectations were matched.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSSEA Games: Philippines picks up 1st win in men’s water poloSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutAs always, Jayson Castro was the anchor of the team, bailing the squad out whenever the Philippines need a bucket. But also sharing the spotlight were a handful of his peers.June Mar Fajardo finally came into his own against Chinese Taipei and dominated the paint against naturalized player Quincy Davis. Calvin Abueva also proved that his gung-ho game has a place in the international stage, providing the energy Gilas badly needed.

We all know that Australia is a very, very tough team, so that’s gonna be a really, really tall order for us to play them, to compete with them at their home place. We’ll prepare as best we can against Australia, and we’ll go out, we’ll play our game and we’ll see what happens,” he said.But if there’s something Reyes saw from this Gilas team it’s that these players will no doubt lay it all on the line for flag and country.“The one thing I’ve learned about this team is never underestimate them and never count them out because they just keep on fighting and they just keep plugging away,” he said.

first_imgFired up the entrepreneurial spirit and change they believe in, some Bangaloreans are blazing new trails of being in areas as diverse as yoga, motor sport and social initiatives. Meet some of the city’s new eclectic set.Sean Blagsvedt, 35Founder, babajob.comHe moved to Bangalore seven years ago from Redmond, US, on assignment with Microsoft Research India. “Bummed out” by the socioeconomic inequity he saw, Sean launched babajob.com in the city, a Bangaloreheadquartered job search website to help informal sector workers find work through social networks. Since its inception in 2007, the Babajob experiment has not only proved to be sustainable, but is thriving too. The innovative venture has hooked up thousands of nannies, maids, cooks, drivers, plumbers, office-boys and cashiers in the city with the right employers.Finding social networks restrictive beyond a point, Blagsvedt has tied up with mobile telecoms and is using the SMS route to reach a wider audience. “As of last month, our user growth rate has tripled. We have also launched across the country and our spread has widened immensely with 500,000 positions added, and job seekers from every state, including the smaller towns, are accessing our database,” he says.Yamini Muthanna, 40Yoga PractitionerIf city-based yoga practitioner and Bharatanatyam dans-euse had her way, yoga would be prescribed as a universal panacea for all the myriad maladies of urban living. In fact, Muthanna reveals that she has on various occasions designed yoga routines to deal with very urbane issues like shopping binges, break-ups and work-related stress. “Yoga can be an everyday companion for modern day life,” quips Muthanna. She has mapped out specific yoga sequences to overcome jetlag, speech or presentation anxieties at work, addictions, and social adjustment.Dinesh Reddy, 44Founder and Managing Director Red Rooster Racing (RRR)The call of the racetrack was too persistent to ignore for this former director of Nutrine Confectionery. In 2008, Reddy quit his job as the director of the city-based sugar confectionary and started Red Rooster Racing. RRR is powered by two of Reddy’s favourite ideas-to put India on the world motor sport map and make motor sporting as big as cricket in the country. “At RRR, our goal is to see an Indian in the top three to five riders or drivers at the Formula 1 level in circuit racing, the Moto GP in motor racing, and the World Racing Championship in rallying,” says Reddy.Vineet Sethi, 27 and Manu Singh, 27 Owners, HysteriaOnce upon a time, Bangaloreans couldn’t find any original music merchandise in their hood. That has now changed with opening of music concept store Hysteria, the only offline retailer of copyrighted music merchandise in the country. Since June 2010, Hysteria has been giving a taste of hip (and original) music-related goodies like Sex Pistols bags, Bob Marley T-shirts, Green Day flip-flops, miniature guitars and Elvis Presley zippos. Set in Church Street, it is the brainchild of two enterprising MBA graduates who left their jobs to do something on their own. Hysteria sources music accessories, apparel, DVDs and art from the US, UK, Australia and Europe. “Bangalore is a cosmopolitan city where people know and love their music. So we figured that the best place to sell licenced rock’n’ roll merchandise was here,” says Singh.Ayesha Pramanik, 29Disco JockeySporting a collage of tattoos and a larger-than-life personality, DJ Ayesha belongs to the rare tribe of female disc jockeys in the country.

Lokpal Bill: Govt dumps 5 year clause to save PM

first_imgDetermined to keep a sitting Prime Minister out of the Lokpal Bill’s ambit, the government has sacrificed the five-year time limitation clause on which it had insisted earlier. This would mean all ex-PMs, ex-ministers and former MPs would also come under the purview of the Lokpal for acts of corruption while in office, with no ‘expiry date’ on graft complaints.This effectively gives the Lokpal the liberty to investigate any case, no matter how old it is, except against a sitting PM or the higher judiciary. It is a significant departure from the original draft Bill prepared by the Union law ministry which had said any complaint pertaining to an offence older than five years would be disqualified from a Lokpal probe.This draft also allowed a probe against a sitting PM, except on decisions pertaining to national security, defence, foreign affairs and public order. Dumping the clause from the proposed Bill appears to be an attempt to justify that an ex-PM would not be exonerated for his corrupt acts while in office.But during negotiations with civil society members, the government has now insisted a PM only be probed after he demits office. It is significant that the decision was taken at the sixth meeting of the joint drafting committee on June 6, which all five civil society representatives boycotted in protest of Baba Ramdev’s eviction from the Ramlila ground At the meeting, it was also decided that all former ministers, ex-MPs and ex-bureaucrats above the level of joint secretary would be covered under the Bill, even if they had demitted office or retired.advertisementFor more news on India, click here.For more news on Business, click here.For more news on Movies, click here.For more news on Sports, click here.last_img read more

But Anup Kumar, 53, shows none of the visible scars that the treatment of a debilitating disease can leave you with.Here’s a survivor, among the 10 per cent of victims who battle cancer and continue living life with all its ambiguities. In January 2000, he was given four months to live. “My first thought was whether I could live for 121 days,” says Kumar. It’s more than two years since. He’s back to work – and even sports a bristly beard.”I searched for joy in cancer,” says Kumar with hard-to-believe earnestness. The post-graduate in nuclear physics from Delhi University who has spent most of his working career in advertising agencies found it in his nicotine air-free home (he smoked 30-40 cigarettes a day earlier), from the knowledge of having invested his affections in the right people, in the time spent seeking solace in chanting Buddhist shlokas and meditating instead of long hours in office and in writing “live” – at his wife Amrita’s suggestion – The Joy of Cancer (Rupa).”Thinking positive from the day of diagnosis helped,” says Kumar, “and in working towards achieving mind-body continuum.” In his intimately autobiographical “book of hope”, which he initially wrote as a diary, Kumar shares the experiences of fighting his personal war against lung cancer with a seven-point battle plan.Along with his experiences, he includes a compendium of myths linked to the degenerative disease, side-effects of various kinds of treatments and new therapies available, a list of cancer societies and websites and cancer terminology.When Kumar was diagnosed with lung cancer, he had just lost his job but was planning for another one, oblivious to the cancer cells gnawing into his lifespan.advertisementThe knowledge of the disease has made future-planning difficult, besides leaving “big holes in my pocket” – the treatment cost Rs 12 lakh over a period of six months. “Cancer survival is about living each day as it comes,” he says.Despite the odds, Kumar has chosen to live it with joy. He’s even got himself a new job.last_img read more
