Sonny Angara said only Pacquiao was in the best position to decide.“Though I believe the President doesn’t want to see Manny fall prey to what many great fighters do—which is fighting one time too many.

I’d say, my advice to my colleague, seat mate and friend is that it is best to leave the stage while the audience is applauding,” said Sen.

Hahn was scheduled to hold a press conference this evening.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Reggie, illegally dumped in the lake by a former LAPD officer and another man sometime in early 2005, was first spotted in early August that year. A succession of gator wranglers were unsuccessful in their attempts to capture the abandoned pet, but their exploits drew hundreds of onlookers. For several weeks, residents showed up toting lawn chairs and binoculars to try to catch a glimpse of Harbor City’s live reality show. After 18 months of seclusion, Reggie reappeared early this month. Los Angeles Councilwoman Janice Hahn said that based on witnesses’ reports, Reggie may have grown to about 7 feet – a foot longer than before – and that the reptile’s head appeared to be larger. An alligator believed to be the elusive “Reggie” – who lived for two years in a murky lake in a Los Angeles park for two years, has reportedly been captured this afternoon. Officials said the alligator was spotted on dry land near Harbor Regional Park’s Lake Machado around 3:30 p.m. Park officials put a fence around the animal and, with the assistance of firefighters, was loaded into a truck for transport to the Los Angeles Zoo, said Fire Department spokeswoman D’Lisa Davies. More information was expected to be released this evening.
0Shares0000Tottenham coach Mauricio Pochettino hopes to sign players before the transfer window closesNEWCASTLE, United Kingdom, Aug 14-Mauricio Pochettino insists Tottenham Hotspur’s 2-0 victory at Newcastle United in their Premier League opener has not altered his desire to finally strengthen his squad before the transfer deadline.Pochettino remains aware Tottenham lack the depth and quality to compete in four competitions this season after failing to make a single close-season signing while their rivals all spent big money on new recruits. The Spurs boss was encouraged that they started the season by winning a game that was finely balanced until Newcastle’s Jonjo Shelvey was sent off early in the second half on Sunday.Newly-promoted Newcastle had coped comfortably with the Tottenham attack, but Shelvey’s foolish stamp on Dele Alli was the turning point.Goals from Alli and Ben Davies punished Shelvey’s rush of blood, but Pochettino still wants to bring in new players before the transfer window shuts at the end of August as he aims to emulate last season’s title challenge.“It was important to start with three points, but it wasn’t a great game and wasn’t our best performance. The most important thing for me was starting the season in the right way,” he said.“The balance of the team is the main thing and we need some new players to bring some new energy. It is important to challenge your best players and refresh the squad.“We are calm enough to compete in the same way as we competed last season, but we need to sign some players before the end of the transfer window.“We have 10 months to go and we are involved in four competitions, so we need more competition, more quality and more people who can help keep the level we want to show in every game.”Pochettino insisted that Tottenham would have triumphed even if Shelvey had stayed on the pitch, although there was little evidence to support that claim.“Of course we would have won. But it was difficult to play because the pitch was so dry and Newcastle played deep,” he said.“It was difficult to find space to create chances. In the second half we played against 10 men and that always helps and made it more comfortable for us.”– Maturity –Tottenham midfielder Dele Alli scores his team’s first and the opening goal during the English Premier League match against Newcastle in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, north east England on August 13, 2017Pochettino singled out the contributions of Alli and Christian Eriksen, but 20-year-old right-back Kyle Walker-Peters was named man of the match after replacing near namesake Kyle Walker following his move to Manchester City.“He was so calm,” said the Tottenham manager.“To play as he played showed real maturity and was really happy. He even gave a speech after the game with his man-of-the-match trophy.“He was so proud and it was a fantastic moment he will always remember.”Shelvey, who now faces a three-match suspension and a club fine, apologised to manager Rafael Benitez and his team-mates in the dressing room after the game.“The rules are the rules and he made a mistake,” said Benitez.But Benitez also claimed that a tackle from Tottenham’s Harry Kane that ended Florian Lejeune’s involvement in the game was a worse challenge, although it only merited a yellow card from the referee Andre Marriner.Paul Dummett was also injured to add to Benitez’s concerns about the quality of his squad after a game that was watched by the club’s owner Mike Ashley, whose lack of transfer spending has infuriated the Spaniard.“There were a lot of positives, but we know we are in the Premier League and have to do everything really well if you want to win games,” Benitez said.“All we had going on the pitch was lost because we made one mistake. Jonjo knows he made a mistake and apologised, but we have lost the game.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)
The Football Association is urging English clubs to unearth the next generation of home-grown stars by enforcing new rules which intend to reduce the number of non-EU players in the Premier League.Stricter regulations, approved by the Home Office on Friday, will come into force from May 1 and will make it more difficult for foreign players – who are seen to be blocking English talent – to secure work permits this summer.FA chairman Greg Dyke said he wants club to discover the ‘next Harry Kane’, following the young Tottenham striker’s remarkable breakthrough top flight season.The 21-year-old Spurs sensation is currently the Premier League’s joint top goalscorer and was rewarded for his fine form with a debut call-up to the England senior side this week.Dyke also wants to persuade the Premier League to drop the number of non-home grown players allowed in a 25-man squad from 17 to 13 and to adjust the definition of ‘home-grown’ so that players only qualify if they are registered for three years prior to turning 18, rather than 21.The Premier League is understood to have serious reservations about both changes to the home-grown players rule, including whether there would be legal implications.The proposals come from the FA’s England Commission, launched in 2013 to help English youngsters succeed at the highest level and achieve Dyke’s ambitious target of winning the 2022 World Cup.English players currently represent just 35 per cent of those playing in the top flight and Dyke wants that figure to rise to “around 40 per cent” in the next five years.The home-grown proposals may prove difficult to push through, however, which is where Dyke hopes Kane’s 29 goals in all competitions this season can prove persuasive.Dyke said: “We will go round [the clubs] and try to convince them. We will ask: ‘Are you sure you haven’t got a Harry Kane playing in your youth side?’.“It must help negotiations mustn’t it? Suddenly an English kid who was out on loan at four different places, who was touch and go to get a game in the first team, is suddenly the top scorer in English football.“It’s great news. How many more Harry Kanes are there out there, who just can’t get a game?”The FA calculates that 33 per cent of players who gained entry under the old rules would have been turned down under the new system.Those include Mame Diouf, Geoff Cameron and Brek Shea at Stoke, Bryan Oviedo at Everton, Roger Espinoza at Wigan and Ryo Miyaichi at Arsenal.The FA will now set about convincing the Premier League to increase the home-grown quota in 25-man squads from eight to 12, and to lower the age at which players must be attached to FA clubs from 18 to 15.Under the current rules, Cesc Fabregas, Gael Clichy and Asmir Begovic all count as home-grown players in the Premier League despite earning more than 150 caps between them for Spain, France and Bosnia and Herzegovina respectively.“The Premier League has already embraced the idea of home-grown player requirements, but the current rules are not having the desired impact,” Dyke said.“These proposed changes will encourage clubs to play the genuine home-grown talent that is being developed through their and other academies.” 1 Young Tottenham striker Harry Kane
Senator for Donegal North East, Jimmy Harte has backed calls for safety ahead of the Ireland v Russia European Qualifier on September 6th in Russia.The Labour Senator is a keen football fan and has followed Ireland across Europe in many tournaments.Indeed the Letterkenny politician was amongst the travelling Irish fans who travelled to Moscow when Russian fans went on the rampage. “Having been one of the fans that travelled to Moscow in 2002, I experienced first hand the security concerns highlighted and I do not want to see a repeat of these horrifying incidents.“I have raised the issue in the Seanad and have called for the safety of Irish fans to be made a priority.“The Department of Foreign Affairs should liaise with both the Russian authorities and the FAI to ensure that all the necessary advice is given to supporters intending to travel.“All fans travelling to support Ireland in this crucial qualifier should feel safe and they must be assured that there will not be a repeat of the incidents seen in 2002,” he said.

2 Liverpool can achieve greatness under Jurgen Klopp because he is the first manager since Kenny Dalglish to truly understand the club.That’s according to Reds legend Kevin Keegan, who told Jim White the German is capable of delving silverware to Anfield once again. Liverpool fan Frank called the Sports Bar on Wednesday in the wake of their Champions League defeat to Napoli, claiming Klopp will never win anything whilst in charge and Chelsea have a better chance of winning the Premier League.Keegan however, is far more optimistic when it comes to his former side’s chances and insists Klopp and Liverpool are a match made in heaven.He told Jim White on talkSPORT: “I honestly think since Kenny [Dalglish] finished, which was the end of the Boot Room era which carried on for a lot of years as we know, I think he is the first manager to go there who really does get that football club.“His humour is like the Liverpool humour, his passion and the running up and down the touchline. 2 Klopp’s relationship with the Liverpool fans means he can achieve greatness according to Keegan Klopp’s infectious passion and drive has won him fans since joining in 2015 “He looks like he wants to head and tackle every ball!“I think the Liverpool fans like that type of manager. Bill Shankly was a bit like that and Bob [Paisley] couldn’t run because he had a bit of a limp because of his cartilage problems.“But they get Jurgen Klopp and, more importantly, Jurgen Klopp gets Liverpool.”After their perfect Premier League start was brought to an end by a draw at Chelsea, the Reds will face what is surely their toughest test of the season against Manchester City on Sunday.
EXCLUSIVE: St Eunan’s GAA club is to hold an emergency meeting tomorrow evening (Thursday) to discuss a row over parish boundaries with junior club Letterkenny Gaels.A huge number of club members are expected to attend the meeting which is being held at St Eunan’s clubhouse at 8pm.Under plans launched by the Gaels, St Eunan’s would draw players from the parish of Conwall and Leck whilst the Gaels would have sole access to players in the parish of Aughaninshin. This has caused uproar amongst diehard Eunan’s members – many of whom live in the Aughaninshin end of the town and whose families have been with the club for generations.Mediation between the two clubs has so far failed, mainly because St Eunan’s is angry that the Gaels is in breach of an agreement reached when the junior club was founded when both sides agreed to give players the choice of which club to join in Letterkenny without referral to boundaries.The Gaels however have since insisted on changing this agreement.“Forcing players to line out for a club with which they have no attachment, either emotionally or otherwise, will destroy the GAA in Letterkenny,” said one St Eunan’s insider. “The club and its members will fight tooth and nail to stop this.”A Gaels source told donegaldaily.com: “A bye-law exists separating the parishes and we want that implemented. St Eunan’s want it all their own way.”EXCLUSIVE: ST EUNAN’S HOLD EGM IN BATTLE WITH GAELS was last modified: September 14th, 2011 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:GAA: LETTERKENNY GAELS CLUB NOTESGAA: ST EUNAN’S LETTERKENNY NOTESSt Eunan’s GAA club
Donegal Action for Cancer Care are asking all people registered to vote in Donegal to ask their choice of candidate and indeed all those seeking election where heath matters are on their agenda?The group says is not enough for the candidates to tell us how important it is too them.“We at DACC want to know what will they do to protect health services for the people of Donegal? You need to know if the health care you or your family need will be there if & when you need it. “Budgets cuts & recruitment embargo have already had a major impact on our own general hospital in Letterkenny as well as Donegal’s community hospitals. Waiting lists get longer with people waiting years to get seen for health services.“Acute hospital budgets nationally were cut by €56.5million in 2013 and now in 2014 the hospital budgets are cut for this year by €250 million.The service plan for Primary Care Services says “primary care schemes through the Primary Care Reimbursement Service include a cost reduction challenge of €231 million in 2014.And remember things like medical cards are under a comprehensive review of client eligibility and prescription charges with the “delisting” of some drugs from payment by your medical card. There are so many other key & important health & health care issues that are all facing more major cuts like homecare & community support services that we in DACC have serious concerns about.The primary aim of DACC is ensure the people of Donegal have access to world- class cancer services whilst ensuring the retention and development of all cancer services at Letterkenny General Hospital. Cancer patients need access to other health services so no health service is safe anymore.DACC have had fears over the last 3 plus years that the major cuts in place with more on the way that the health needs of Donegal people are in serious danger and under major threat. With Mr Tony O’ Brien the Director General of the HSE warning the Government at the beginning of this year “that a failure to provide funding for its proposed developments for this year could be contrary to the best interests of patients”, DACC are certain that we have yet to have the full impact of these major cuts to our health care service and the impact on the sick people of Donegal.CANCER GROUP ASK ELECTION CANDIDATES WHERE HEALTH SERVICES ARE ON THEIR AGENDA was last modified: May 16th, 2014 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:donegalDONEGAL ACTION FOR CANCER CAREElections
