In a playful moment for Globalport, Jarencio lets Araña be coach

first_imgPringle went on to score on a free throw off the play that Araña mapped out en route to the Batang Pier taking a 108-91 victory, their fifth in 10 games as they enhanced their bid to clinch a playoff spot.“We were able to score but it wasn’t exactly the play that I drew up and Stanley was subbed out after so I got mad a little bit in the corner and I saw coach Pido and he was just laughing at me,” Araña said smiling.Araña also described Jarencio as always optimistic and isn’t fond of dwelling on the past.“He always gives us long breaks. Not actually long breaks but like two days off. And we don’t want to abuse that and instead, we want to repay that gesture by playing our best and so far, the result has been good,” he said.Jarencio is far removed from his coaching days in college, but it doesn’t seem like it.ADVERTISEMENT GALLERY: Barangay Ginebra back as PBA Governors’ Cup kings Chief Justice Peralta on upcoming UAAP game: UP has no match against UST PLAY LIST 01:00Chief Justice Peralta on upcoming UAAP game: UP has no match against UST02:15Trump signs Anti-Semitism order at Hanukkah event00:50Trending Articles02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award It’s too early to present Duterte’s ‘legacy’ – Lacson “They’re play around and the way they treat each other is like they’re still college players.

He’s like your buddy on the court and even in practice. So during our huddle, I sat on the bench, gave me the board and told me to draw the last play for Stanley (Pringle),” Araña recalled in Filipino.“So I drew up a play and everyone was listening and that’s the good thing about this team. We can poke fun at coach Pido but at the same time, we respect him a lot so that’s our advantage over other teams because we have that kind of relationship with our coach.” Phivolcs records 2 ‘discrete weak ash explosions’ at Taal Volcano Nabong guarantees GlobalPort will make playoffs View comments Phivolcs records 2 ‘discrete weak ash explosions’ at Taal Volcano Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. last_img read more

Rose Hall Estate workers strike

first_imgSugar workers at the Rose Hall Estate on Monday intensified their strike with a protest outside the estate at East Canje, Region Six (East Berbice/Corentyne), calling for the removal of the manager.One of the workers’ representatives, Mark FaraiaWhile the workers were demonstrating, their union the Guyana Agriculture and General Workers Union (GAWU) was invited to meet with management at 13:00h.During the high-level meeting, GuySuCo agreed to give the workers their obstacle payment which they were demanding.On Wednesday, almost 1000 workers walked off the joy, protesting management’s unilateral decision to alter the arrangements in obstacle payments, and their refusal to meet with the workers’ representatives.Initially, the estate’s management was only willing to pay the money if the workers would have completed their allotment of work for the day.The workers, in turn, were arguing that they could not complete what they are being asked because of the conditions under which they have to work.Scores of workers took to the picketline on MondayWhile on the picketline on Monday, one of the worker’s representatives, Mark Faraia explained that all of the workers are aware that the corporation is in a crisis: “If you are talking about reducing cost, I think that the management, the CEO, the Board and the executives should consider a pay cut; that is what big companies do, that is what smart people do. Why not give up some of the benefits that they enjoy, then they would earn themselves the moral authority or permission to come and take anything from us… This manager is incompetent. If the government want to close this estate, don’t let them use the workers as a stepping stone to close the estate.”Workers are expected to recommence harvesting today, however grinding is not expected to recommence till Wednesday.As a consequence of the six-day strike action, 660 punts of cane which had been harvested, loaded and transported to the factory, were discarded because the factory had not been grinding since Wednesday.last_img read more
