first_imgPhoto by Tristan Tamayo/ INQUIRER.netKiefer Ravena was the least surprised that his brother Thirdy made the cut in Gilas Pilipinas coach Chot Reyes’ “23-for-23” list.After all, he saw first hand how hard the UAAP Season 80 Finals MVP worked to get to the level where he is in right now.ADVERTISEMENT “Honestly, I wasn’t surprised. It’s something that each and every one of them deserve, and being part of the ’23-for-23’ is something he (Thirdy) really worked for in the last couple of years,” Kiefer said.“It just goes to show that if you work hard, the Lord will be there because He knows how hard you’ve worked for it.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkHowever, Thirdy’s inclusion to the pool doesn’t guarantee anything. That’s always been the case ever since, even to the current Gilas Pilipinas pool where every player is fighting for a spot in the final lineup.That’s why Kiefer echoed Reyes in encouraging his younger brother to keep working. “You’re in the pool, so it’s either you make yourself into the lineup or out of the pool. You have to control what you can control and that is how you play and how consistently you’ll be in practice.”Though Kiefer didn’t really give his brother any advice, he said that Thirdy has perfectly understood his situation in Gilas as one part of the young bloods.“At the start, it’s always jittery, seeing your idols and playing against them, playing with them, and learning the system, but it’s something that you should be proud of yourself,” he said. “You’re here for a reason. The coaches picked you for a reason. And it’s up to you how you maximize your time in this program.”The older Ravena, though, couldn’t avoid thinking about the prospects of teaming up with his brother once again.READ: Kiefer looks forward to possibility of playing with Thirdy at GilasADVERTISEMENT Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

first_imgThe Beharry Group of Companies through the Private Sector Commission (PSC) on Friday donated over million worth of food supplies to the Civil Defence Commission (CDC) as relief to be sent to Caribbean countries affected by Hurricanes Irma and Maria.The donation was made by Chairman of the Beharry Group of Companies, Edward Anand Beharry to the CDC Director, Chabilall Ramsarup at the PSC boardroom, Waterloo Street, Georgetown.Executive Director of the Public Sector Commission (PSC), Elizabeth Alleyne; Beharry Group of Companies Chairman, Edward Anand Beharry; Vice Chairman of the PSC, Desmond Sears; and Director General of CDC, Retired Colonel Chabilall Ramsarup at the handing over, which was held in the boardroom of PSC on Waterloo StreetThe corporate member of the PSC made the donation following a meeting with the Commission and the Government of Guyana.The donation is of 33,000 pounds of food valued at $5 million along with a donation from Sterling Products Limited of 382 metric tonnes of cleaning supplies valued just under $2 million.According to Beharry’s Chairman, his almost 82-year-old company was ready to answer the call of PSC to give the much needed assistance to the affected Caribbean countries.Beharry remarked that the donation, even though large cannot do much given the scale; however, “If called on again, we will certainly make additional donations.”The Chairman however expressed satisfaction with the present donation and noted “it certainly is a start and we are proud to be a part of the PSC to contribute towards this initiative.”“We have 85 tonnes of stuff to move and we have one little problem that is the moving of the stuff. We were disappointed this afternoon when we were told by a company that they cannot be of assistance any longer by lending us an aircraft to move the supplies. We are currently working out other means to have the supplies moved to those islands because if we take another two weeks to get the stuff there, it might not mean anything, so the fastest that we get the humanitarian assistance, it is always best in a disaster,” the Director explained.He added however that another member of the PSC has promised to lend a boat to the CDC to deliver supplies to the affected Caribbean countries.PSC Chairman, Desmond Sears said that logistics are always a problem, and as such, called on other companies to come on board to lend assistance to have the supplies transported.last_img read more

first_imgLOS ANGELES – Ivan Hill, the so-called “60 Slayer,” received the death sentence Wednesday for the strangulation murders of six women. In handing down the sentence, Judge Larry Fidler said Hill clearly deserved the punishment, even though nobody may ever know why he chose to so coldly hunt and kill his victims more than a decade ago. “I can find no reason, Mr. Hill, not to sentence you to death,” the Los Angeles Superior Court judge told him. Hill was convicted of strangling the women, most of whom were prostitutes, over a three-month span in 1993 and 1994. Their bodies were left in cities along the Pomona (60) Freeway between Ontario and Industry, earning him the nickname “60 Slayer.” Killed were Helen Ruth Hill of West Covina, Roxanne Bates of Montclair, Betty Sue Harris of Pomona, Donna Goldsmith of Pomona, Cheryl Sayers of Ontario and Debra Brown of Los Angeles. Hill, 45, was sentenced at the end of an emotionally draining morning in a downtown Los Angeles courtroom, where relatives of the victims told Hill and the judge of the depth of their losses. They described how the murders shattered their families, deprived children of mothers and grandmothers, and forced parents to bury their own children. “I know God says forgive and forget,” said Toni Goldsmith, who was 15 when her mother was strangled. “But I can never forgive you,” she told Hill, “And I can never forget.” Sayers’ brother, Kevin, read a letter written by Sayers’ daughter, who was 12 when her mother died. The woman, now 26, wrote that she hopes Hill will feel as much pain and misery in his death as he caused his victims. “You are miserable and worthless, and killing you would put me at ease,” the woman wrote. Hill, dressed in an orange jumpsuit and chained at the waist, turned his head and calmly looked each grieving relative in the eye as they addressed him. He showed no emotion throughout the morning and said virtually nothing during the court hearing, even when the judge invited him to make a statement. Outside the courtroom, Hill’s attorneys said he remained silent because the hearing was too emotionally taxing on him. “I’m sure the day will come when he will be able to tell them how very, very sorry he is about this,” attorney Jennifer Friedman said. Friedman said life in prison without the possibility of parole would have been a better penalty for Hill and would have helped relatives of the victims to heal sooner. Hill has never denied being the killer. However, his lawyers argued during his trial that he deserved leniency in his sentence because he grew up in an abusive home and was savagely beaten as a child. Before sentencing Hill on Wednesday, Fidler denied a defense request to either grant him a new trial or reduce his sentence to life in prison without parole. The judge said he considered Hill’s upbringing in deciding whether to reduce the penalty, but concluded whatever problems Hill suffered as a boy did not outweigh the heinous nature of the six killings. “It does not even come close,” Fidler said. Hill was not identified as a suspect until a DNA hit pointed to him in 2003. Police believe Hill likely killed at least two other women in addition to the six murders for which he was convicted. However, prosecutors didn’t charge him in those deaths because they didn’t have enough evidence until his case was well under way. Hill also has a long rap sheet, which includes a 1979 murder conviction for his role in the shooting death of a Glendora liquor store clerk during a robbery. Hill’s death sentence will be automatically appealed to the California Supreme Court. He is scheduled to be transferred to Death Row at San Quentin State Prison within the next 10 days. r_leveque@dailybulletin.com (909) 483-9325 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
