China population now over 1.4 billion as birthrate falls Reggie Johnson will have a huge size advantage at the slot for the Painters, who can exploit this to the hilt with Blackwater not having anyone to contain the Rain or Shine behemoth one-on-one.Garcia and his chargers will still face Phoenix on June 1 and Meralco on June 24 before rounding out their elimination schedule against TNT KaTropa on July 7.The Painters are tied with idle TNT KaTropa for the lead and are just a full game ahead of fourth-running Meralco, which gets a chance at enhancing its playoff position when it battles Phoenix Petroleum in the 7 p.m. game.The Bolts are again leaning on import Arinze Onuaku to plug all the holes in the middle.

Deputy House Speaker Hans Barchue has called for rigid and uncompromising measures instituted by President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf in order to curb corruption.In a Daily Observer interview, Deputy Speaker Barchue stated that as corruption remains a major challenge affecting the development of this Liberia, “very harsh” action should be taken against those caught in dishonest and illegal practices.He wants President Sirleaf suspend officials implicated in the General Auditing Commission’s (GAC) investigation of corrupt practices in public offices.“If those accused of corruption remain in office while court proceedings are ongoing, they will have time and opportunity to cover-up in order to show that they are not ‘guilty.’ ”He appealed to the Chief Executive to begin ‘suspension’ as a new strategy in tackling corruption—an offense he considered “systemic and chronic” in the Liberian society.“If I am accused and still maintain in that position, I will have time to manage and manipulate documents to protect my interest. We need to come up with a policy to address cases that come out of the GAC reports. Government needs to take reports from the GAC seriously in an effort to serve as a deterrent to would-be perpetrators,” the Grand Bassa County lawmaker argued.Representative Barchue used the occasion to call on authorities of the Central Bank of Liberia (CBL) to formulate the right measures to combat the decrease in the value of the Liberian dollar to the United States dollars.He maintained that CBL should have the capacity to address complex problems in the economy, and come up with the right principles to achieve its goal.Deputy Speaker Barchue described the decline in the Liberian dollars and the current state of the Liberian economy as “unfortunate, raising concern about the prospects of growth and human development of the Liberian people.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)

Photo: Chelsey Chambers and her husband, Dustin, are seen on their wedding day./FacebookIt’s a list that no one truly wants to have to write and especially not someone so young. However, when a 22 year-old local Fort St. John woman was diagnosed with terminal cancer on Aug. 20, 2010 she created a bucket list with the help of some of her friends.- Advertisement -Chelsey Chambers was a nurse at the Fort St. John Hospital, having graduated from the Licensed Practical Nurse program at Northern Lights College. She had also only just married her high school sweetheart Dustin. She was described as a sweet but sassy woman by her friend Neil Evans, a fellow nurse at the hospital.Neil and Loni Evans were two of her close friends. Both helped organize a fundraiser for Chambers at the end of January 2010 to help with some of the costs associated with her travel, chemotherapy and radiation treatments in Vancouver after her first cancer diagnosis.First diagnosed with tongue cancer on Dec. 3, 2009 after finding a lesion on her tongue, less than two weeks later, a partial glossectomy was performed where doctors removed part of her tongue. One week after the surgery, Chambers found lumps on her neck and doctors ended up having to perform a radical neck dissection and a lymph node removal.After several weeks of radiation and chemotherapy treatment in Vancouver, Chambers returned to Fort St. John for a few months before a set of scans were done were done in Vancouver, one of her head and neck and the other of her lower body. The first scan was clear, but the second scan was anything but clear, says Loni Evans. The cancer had spread to her bones, liver, lungs, left hip and spine. Evans says it was on that fateful day in August that the doctor told her she had six to 12 months left to live.Advertisement Chambers and several of her friends decided to come up with a bucket list for her. Evans says the bucket list idea was obviously new to Chambers who only wanted to put down items like cleaning out her basement, but in the end, a list of different trips and new activities was decided upon.The list included visiting the Liard Hot Springs, going to Dunvegan Gardens in Fairview, Alta. for its annual Christmas – her favourite holiday – in September, a trip to Las Vegas – where she apparently said she’d be able to see more of the world – and a honeymoon in Mexico. Although Chambers was able to complete the above activities, since the cancer began to affect her very quickly, she had to drop other items off her list like a trip to Europe to visit Scottish castles, a trip to Hawaii, and a Lady Gaga concert.Loni Evans says one of her favourite memories of Chambers was when they were in the Liard area and a herd of buffalo was blocking the road. Despite numerous honks of the car horn, the buffalo still weren’t moving. Chambers then rolled down the window and yelled, “Come on, get the f*** off the road, I don’t have a lot of time here” and the buffalo instantly moved out of the way.Just four months after her diagnosis and days after Christmas, Chambers’ passed away on Dec. 28. Her funeral was held at the Charlie Lake Church on Sunday where people were encouraged to wear pink, her favourite colour. Evans says her urn was even going to be put in a custom-made frilly pink bag to be lowered into the ground.Advertisement Although Chambers clearly touched a lot of people throughout her brief life, her legacy is carried on in memories, her abilities as a buffalo herder, and her last few months living out some of her biggest wishes.Anyone wishing to make a donation can contact Neil Evans at firstname.lastname@example.org
Rojo — who travelled to the United States with the squad for their pre-season tour and to the Super Cup in Macedonia where they lost to United manager Jose Mourinho’s former side Real Madrid — was pictured training with them on Tuesday.Mourinho has said he didn’t see Rojo playing again until December but it didn’t prevent the club from trumpeting his return to the training ground and posting several photographs as evidence on twitter.“Back at it on the training pitch” was the twitter caption for one before teasingly adding another “who do we have here?” along with images of Rojo.Ashley Young and Luke Shaw, who had groin and foot injuries respectively, also returned to first team training having successfully come through an Under-23 clash with Swansea on Monday.The trio though may find it tough going getting into the first team as they have won both their matches so far — against West Ham and Swansea — by the scoreline of 4-0.0Shares000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares000Manchester United’s Marcos Rojo in action during a 2016 Europa League match against Feyenoord Rotterdam © AFP / Emmanuel DunandLONDON, United Kingdom, Aug 22 – Argentinian defender Marcos Rojo gave another boost to early Premier League leaders Manchester United by returning to training with the first team on Tuesday.The 27-year-old — a member of the Argentinian side that lost to Germany in the 2014 World Cup final — is recovering from a knee ligament injury suffered last April which ruled him out of among other things United’s Europa League final triumph over Dutch outfit Ajax.
