Sports Minister Dare Shares Then Deletes Phone Number On Twitter

first_imgThe Minister of Youth and Sports Sunday Dare may pride himself on being a new media expert but exposed himself to the pitfalls of social media by publicly sharing his phone number on microblogging site Twitter on Friday.Dare, an executive commissioner at the Nigeria Communication Commission (NCC) prior to his appointment to President Muhammadu Buhari’s cabinet, shared his private number on Twitter in response to a user asking for his details after the Minister had asked for help in locating a person.“Dear (Honourable Minister) I have the contact of the great Nigeria you asked for. How can I get that to you, sir?” Twitter user Olumide Idowu tweeted to Dare before the minister then replied with his number.“Thank you for giving us your phone number,” another user Adebayo Ebenezer replied to the Minister’s tweet.Perhaps realising the folly of his actions, Dare has now deleted the tweet.Related“Pull Down Surulere Stadium,” Nigerian Advises Sports Minister DareJune 10, 2020In “Nigeria”Solomon Dalung Takes Swipe At Successor Sunday DareSeptember 22, 2019In “NFF”Sports Minister Dare Announces Talent Hunt Program To Discover Young Talented AthletesNovember 11, 2019In “News”last_img read more

Marcos questions advance payments for vaccines

first_imgSenator Imee R. Marcos expressed surprise on Monday that  advance payments for government purchases such as the impending procurement of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) vaccine for 2021 are allowed.Senator Imee R. Marcos (Senate of the Philippines / FILE PHOTO / MANILA BULLETIN)Because of this, Marcos urged her colleagues to pass a bill that would amend the current Procurement Law to avoid confusion at the Department of Budget and Management (DBM), Department on Health (DOH), local government units (LGUs) and other agencies.The lady senator’s pitch for amendment to the Procurement Law followed her questions fielded at the Department of Budget and Management (DBM) and the Government Procurement Policy Board (GPPB) during a public hearing today on the 2021 National Expenditure Program (NEP) by the Senate finance sub-committee.Marcos, chairwoman of the Senate economic affairs committee, wanted to know whether an advance payment does not violate the law.These agencies, according to Marcos, do not know that this procedure is available to them.The Procurement Law strongly states the use of public biddings in government purchases.The DOH set aside P2.4 billion for the procurement of COVID-19 vaccines under its proposed 2021 budget.Marcos, vice chairwoman of the Senate finance sub-committee, said a slew of bills had been filed in both the Senate and the House of Representatives, and had been discussed at both Legislative chambers but the DBM has yet to submit its position paper on the issue.  Marcos said she is concerned about a DOH statement that advance payment for the purchase for the COVI0-19 is required.The GPPB said advance payment is allowed by Commission on Audit (COA) rules.DOH Undersecretary Maria Rosario Vergeire had said that the P2.4 billion could still be augmented once the cost of vaccines is released by manufacturers.The DOH is looking at 40 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines for 20 percent  of the country’s more  than 100 million population.

In ‘A’ Flight – playing stroke play – it was good to welcome back Kari Kuparinen (6) who was in top spot with 71 net.  Meanwhile it was the ‘old warrior’ Ted Morris (14) with the best Stableford score of the day with 40 points to take ‘B’ Flight.  37 points from Michael Jefferys (18) and 39 from Joel Flor (24) were enough to secure first place in ‘C’ and ‘D’ Flights respectively.Chura Srinual (left) was the winner of the Ladies Flight.With just a few ladies playing today it was the smiling new face of Chura Srinual (34) who returned the best score of 29 in the Ladies Flight.This month’s presentation was at Lewiinski’s where Colin and his team provided a mouthwatering buffet to cater for all tastes and diets!  As is usual, the ‘Lewiinski’s Lovelies’ were on hand to deal with drink orders.Kari Kuparinen (right), winner of A Flight.Presentation time and Nigel called order and welcomed all and expressed appreciation to Colin and his team and introduced Golf Chairman Joe.  He expressed his appreciation to the day’s competitors and gave details of upcoming PSC golfing events for the next few months.  He also announced that PSC were providing marshals for the PGA tournament at Amata Springs on December 12th – 15th.  There are still some vacancies for this roll and full details are in the Clubhouse and on the PSC website for all those interested in this great opportunity.Then it was back to Nigel who announced the winners and Joe presented the prizes.  The lucky draw followed then it was goodnight from Nigel, who reminded all that the PSC Christmas Party will be held on Wednesday 11th December at the Town in Town Hotel.Regular competitor and B Flight winner, Ted Morris.Santa Claus returns – welcome back Rick.Lewiinski’s stalwarts – Jim and Colin, both in the frame.last_img read more

Detroit Mercy’s Davis breaks Curry’s freshman 3-point record

first_imgBy today DETROIT (AP) — Antoine Davis dribbled slowly past midcourt, went toward the right sideline and created space from the defender with a jab step to the right before putting the ball between his legs to his left and stepping back for a 30-foot shot.Swish .The Detroit Mercy guard broke Stephen Curry’s freshman 3-point record with the high-arcing shot from deep on the right wing early in the second half of an 87-85 win over IUPUI on Thursday night. “I couldn’t help but smile,” Davis said at a postgame news conference. “I was trying to keep my composure with crowd clapping and the standing ovation.“The feeling is unreal.”The no-doubt shot was No. 123 beyond the arc this season, surpassing the mark Curry set at Davidson 12 years ago.“I’ve heard about him, yeah,” said Curry, who wasn’t aware earlier this week he was still holding the Division I record for 3-pointers made by a freshman. “Records are meant to be broken, for sure.”Davis’ feat was celebrated briefly in front of just 1,786 witnesses at Calihan Hall, where the public-address announcer informed the crowd that history was made while a graphic was shown on the video boards to recognize Curry’s record was broken.Detroit Mercy head coach Mike Davis talks to his guard Antoine Davis, his son, during the second half of an NCAA college basketball game against IUPUI, Thursday, Feb. 28, 2019, in Detroit. Davis tied and broke Steph Curry’s NCAA record for 3-point baskets by a freshman. (AP Photo/Carlos Osorio)“I was nervous for him the last two weeks,” said Titans coach Mike Davis, sitting alongside his son at the postgame news conference.The 6-foot-1 guard matched Curry’s mark with a 3-pointer in the first half.Davis finished 7 of 20 from the field, 4 of 12 on 3-pointers and had six assists, including one to set up Josh McFolley’s go-ahead 3-pointer with 45.5 secondsMcFolley scored 25 points for the Titans (11-18, 8-9 Horizon League) who will have to win their conference tournament championship in Detroit to make the NCAA Tournament with a team Davis scrambled to put together after he was hired last summer .“We signed 10 guys after Aug. 24,” Davis said. “School started Aug. 27.”The former Indiana coach, who led the Hoosiers to the 2002 Final Four, did not have to use one of his scholarships for his son because his father-in law-set had a college fund set up for him.“If you don’t use it for college, you get taxed,” he said.Mike Davis said college coaches expected him to coach his son at Texas Southern, cooling interest in him as a three-star prospect. The Cougars, Arkansas-Little Rock, Stephen F. Austin, Nevada, according to Antoine Davis. His father said Cal State Bakersfield, UTEP and Colorado State also showed interest.No one saw this coming.Davis is averaging 26 points with teams face-guarding him without the ball and double-teaming him with it. He has made a freshman-record 125 3-pointers on 324 attempts, connecting on 39 percent. And, he’s playing 37-plus minutes per game.“He has trained hard over the last four or five years for this moment,” his father said.Antoine Davis was home-schooled from the seventh grade through high school and his father set him up with former NBA coach and player John Lucas to work on his game in Houston.A lot.“I trained three or four times a day,” Antoine Davis said. “I took Sundays off and sometimes Saturdays, too. It prepared me to fight through fatigue and got my mind a lot stronger.”The hard work has paid off, putting him in the same breath this week with one of the game’s greats.“It’s an honor to be in mentioned in same sentence as Stephen Curry,” he said. “But, I still have a lot to learn.”___AP Basketball Writer Tim Reynolds in Miami contributed to this report.___Follow Larry Lage at AP college basketball coverage: Detroit Mercy guards Antoine Davis, left, and Lamar Hamrick (21) greet each other after the team’s 87-85 win over IUPUI in an NCAA college basketball game, Thursday, Feb. 28, 2019, in Detroit.
