Guiao blasts Newsome for ‘disrespectful’ last-second shot

first_imgMOST READ “We’ve been struggling so far, and it’s very early. But to be in a 0-3 hole certainly is an emergency situation for us. If we don’t pick it up in the next few games, then we’ll just be looking forward next conference,” Guiao said. “So we just have to go back and evaluate where we’re going.”NLEX aims to end its skid as it takes on Phoenix on Friday.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Guiao, though, felt that the Road Warriors deserved the endgame “disrespect” given how bad the team played.“The way we played, we probably deserved to be disrespected. We played really bad. We could not really find our rhythm in offense,” he said, as NLEX shot 43-percent from the field against Meralco’s sky-high 50-percent clip.It’s a sharp decline for the Road Warriors crew which have made a breakthrough last conference after making the semifinals.“It’s disappointing because we played so well in the last conference,” sighed Guiao. “We’ve been making progress steadily and then we come to this. It’s not what we expected.”But the seasoned tactician knows that there’s no time for the team to mope as the Road Warriors need to shake off everything and go back to work.ADVERTISEMENT Guiao argued that Newsome’s right wing jumper with 1.6 seconds left in the clock was totally unnecessary given the Bolts’ 14-point lead in the closing moments of the contest.“I know that there’s a quotient rule, but it’s more than enough quotient for me,” he said. “At the same time, I did not expect it from Newsome. He’s kind of a good guy who’s going to probably understand a situation like that.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownGuiao may have reached his breaking point given how tough the 2018 PBA Commissioner’s Cup has been for NLEX as it lost all of its first three games.It didn’t help that Meralco broke away early, which further piled the frustration on the team.

SHAD-P Initiative Empowering Smallholder Farmers in Bong County

first_imgLauding the Government and people of Japan for financing the project, Lonnie Herring of WFP re-emphasized the Organization’s commitment to helping Liberia arrive safely at the 2030 zero hunger target by assisting and supporting smallholder producers within the framework of the Government’s development agenda. “The assets we help you create, the food you produce, the income you generate are all yours. None for WFP, Samaritan’s Purse or the Ministry of Agriculture, it’s all yours”, he assured them.Lowland sites visited Thursday by WFP and Samaritan’s Purse included Gbarnga’s Millionaire Quarter, Dahn, Suakoko, Gbondoi, and SKT communities where rehabilitation of old lowland assets and creation of new ones were rapidly progressing.Implemented through Samaritan’s Purse Liberia, a development and humanitarian NGO, the Smallholder Agriculture Development Project (SHAD-P) is funded by the Government of Japan to enhance agriculture and capacity building of smallholder producers, while aiming to support the Government’s strategies of fighting poverty and food insecurity through staple food production.Overall ownership and supervision of this six-month project is with the Government of Liberia. The effort is also geared towards assisting rural women and youth from approximately 1,200 households to become sustainable farmers and gradually increasing access to improved farming inputs and agro-processing technologies among others.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window) Sackie Kollie Town Site beneficiaries are working with Samaritan Purse technicians to improve lowlands under SHAD-ProjectRecently, a team of World Food program (WFP) and Samaritan’s Purse co-workers were greeted to a friendly welcome by farmers of the Gbuyah Swamp Project on the outskirts of Suakoko, Bong County.It was food distribution day or, as one farmer put it, “rice pay day” for members who have achieved the required work output for one month in developing community assets (lowlands) under the Smallholder Agriculture Development Project (SHAD-P) in Bong County.  Many of the nearly 90-strong farmer organization members were there in strength.“This time around we, especially the farmers, have to work to succeed because help will not always come. Now that this help has come, we must do all we can to grow the food we eat,”  Bong County Agriculture Coordinator, Kollie R. Nahn, said.“What we need to work hard is motivation and encouragement and we see it right here in front of us with this rice, oil, and beans. I pledge to you today that we will not fail you our supporters”, stated Saydee J.M. Lincoln, the group’s manager, also a farmer. Blameyea Town food distribution pointlast_img read more
