Photo by Tristan Tamayo/INQUIRER.netUST had the misfortune of facing the top two teams in the league, Ateneo and La Salle, in the same week and this led to its record plummeting to a sorry 0-6.Bright spots are hard to come by in the Growling Tigers season but wingman Jordan Sta. Ana tries to change that.Sta. Ana is not a shooter, and he knows it, with practically all of his points coming from drives and free throws and he averaged 17.5 points this week while putting his body on the line against the Blue Eagles and Green Archers’ frontlines.

He, then, followed it up with a decent 12-point outing against FEU.Honorable mentionsChibueze Ikeh (Ateneo Blue Eagles)Chi Ikeh.

PM disputes Guyana Times media censorship article

first_img– accuses the publication of a relentless campaign against himPrime Minister Moses Nagamootoo on Tuesday disputed a front page article of Guyana Times captioned “US media censorshipPrime Minister Moses Nagamootooobservation – PM claims that US wants to damage image of coalition Govt”.The article was based on a statement issued by the Prime Minister’s Office, after Guyana Times sought a response from the Prime Minister on the United States Department of State’s 2015 Country Report on Human Rights Practices, which cited attempts at State media censorship by the coalition Government.The report which was recently released said while the Government “generally respects the laws which provide for freedom of speech and press, there have been attempts by the Administration to suppress freedom of the press.Under the heading Censorship or Content Restrictions, the report pointed to an attempt by Prime Minister Moses Nagamootoo to restrict and control the content of the State-owned Guyana Chronicle.“In August (2015), the Prime Minister issued a directive that all headlines in the State-owned print media be first scrutinised and approved by his office before they are published. The directive was a response to a headline criticising the Government. The Prime Minister also serves as Minister of Information,” the report noted. However, Prime Minister Nagamootoo in a statement on Tuesday described the Guyana Times article as “calculatedly, wicked, false and mischievous”, adding that it is “the latest in an almost relentless, daily personal attack” on him since the coalition Government took office in May 2015.In rebutting the Prime Minister’s claims, the management of Guyana Times said that the newspaper operated within the realm of a free and independent press. Further, the newspaper does not attack politicians but reports the facts responsibly and accurately – operating fairly, with balance and without fear.The PM’s statement claimed that while the publication’s article sought to create a nexus between a statement issued by the Department of Public Information (DPI) on media censorship and the US report, that was not the case.“The DPI’s release was not in response to any ‘report’ emanating from the United States,” the Prime Minister claimed; however, the statement did not at any point, highlighted that its purpose was in response to any political commentator.However, in its Tuesday statement, the Prime Minister clarified that the statement was related to the April 9, 2016 ‘Hinds’ Sight column’ in the State-owned Guyana Chronicle written by Dr David Hinds and an April 17tedition of the Freddie Kissoon, both of which accused the Government of censorship of the State media.Nagamootoo said this publication has embarked on an “ad hominem, often times vulgar, demeaning, derogatory and racist campaign” against him as a person and in his capacity as Prime Minister.He also accused the publication of “trying desperately to undo the malicious attacks levelled by the Jagdeo clique against the Government of the United States and other major Western democracies. The clique has invariably accused the US of helping to oust the [People’s Progressive Party] PPP after 23 years of unbroken power.”It also claimed that the “clique” accused the Western powers with “meddling” and had instigated and launched an unprecedented vulgar attack against a former US Ambassador during his tenure in Guyana.last_img read more

Crystal Palace prepare to move for Barcelona goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen

Africa’s bloggers set own agenda

first_img7 May 2015More than 1 000 entries from across the African continent were received for the 2015 African Blogger Awards – more than double the number received in 2014, the inaugural year.The awards aim to acknowledge talented Africans making their mark in the online space.Entries were open in five main categories including Best African Blog, Best African YouTube Channel, Best African Instagrammer, Best African Twitter profile and Best African Facebook page, as well as across 36 sub-categories.The awards are based on “impartial blog metrics”, rather than through peer nominations and voting, the organisers say.“The extensive growth in the number of entries we received this year shows that the African social influencer and blogging scenes are not as far behind the rest of the world as many people think,” says Murray Legg, co-founder of the African Blogger Awards.“Even though blogs created and built in Africa may be slowed down by irregular connectivity, it’s clear that content is being spread across social networks like wildfire, as people across the continent use social media to connect and share their stories,” Legg said.The organisers say that social media has allowed the continent to take charge of its own narrative. “It is always amazing to see the power of social media, especially in telling a good news story about Africa, take center stage in the digital age.”The winners were announced on 5 May, with awards made in four of the five main categories:The best blog about Africa is The African Hip Hop Blog from ZimbabweThe best Instagrammer in Africa is Gareth Pon from South AfricaThe best Twitter personality in Africa is Xtiandela from KenyaThe best YouTube channel in Africa is a href=”” target=”_blank”>Theodora Lee from South AfricaThe 36 sub-categories included advice, fashion and beauty, events and nightlife, education, sports, political, technology and gadgets, and youth culture.Category winners include:Advice: Kenya Weddings followed by The Techie Guy from South AfricaArts and Culture: 10and5 (South Africa) followed by Another Africa from EritreaBrand Blog: Ellerman House (South Africa) followed by Bona (South Africa)Business: TechFinancials (South Africa) followed by Mark Lives (South Africa)DIY blog: The Pretty Blog (South Africa) followed by Make Money Online (Nigeria)Entertainment: YoMzanzi (South Africa) followed by Book of Swag (South Africa)Events and Nightlife: Just Curious (South Africa) followed by DK Expressions (South Africa)Expat Living in Africa: Journal of a City Girl (Namibia)Fashion and Beauty: Superficial Girls (South Africa) followed by Inspired Living (South Africa)Food and Drink:Pika Chakula(Kenya), followed byHein Stirred(South Africa)Health and Beauty: Healthable (Nigeria) followed by Not Another Poppie (South Africa)Hobbies: Lazy Gamer (South Africa) followed by Vamers (South Africa)Lifestyle: Lovilee (South Africa) followed by Inspired Living (South Africa)Marketing and Media: Techloy (Nigeria) followed by GottaQuirk (South Africa)Music: Running Wolf Rant (South Africa) followed by Texx and the City (South Africa)Parenting: The Blessed Barrenness (South Africa) followed by Rattle and Mum (South Africa)Personal: Dad and the Code (South Africa) followed by Lucky Pony (South Africa)Photography: Mooi Troues (South Africa), followed by Fire fly Africa (South Africa)Political: Josephat Lukaza (Tanzania) followed by Synapses (South Africa)Specific to Your Country: Kenya Weddings followed by Don’t Party (South Africa)Sports: The Pundits (South Africa) followed by The Bounce (South Africa)Technology and Gadgets: PixelVulture (South Africa) followed by TechLoy (Nigeria)Travel: The Travel Manuel (South Africa) followed by Duff’s Suitcase (South Africa)Youth Culture: Don’t Party (South Africa) followed by Book of Swag (South Africa)The awards said on its website that the event had been enthusiastically covered on social media, where “the diversity of nationalities [were] a clear indication that social media influencers across Africa have welcomed the opportunity to be measured quantitatively against their peers.
