Pogoy was also hit with an unsportsmanlike foul that gifted the Mongolians two free throws, tying the game at 11.But the biggest shot of the game turned out to be the three-point play completed by Tserenbaatar Enkhtaivan off Rosario, extending the Mongolians’ lead, 19-14.ADVERTISEMENT Gotov wrapped up the win with a two-pointer with 1:40 remaining as the Mongolians evened their card at 1-1 just like the Filipinos.

Cambio dealers decry Central Bank’s imposed regulations

first_imgForeign currency circularCambio dealers across the country are up in arms over Government’s strict regulations on their prices for trade, especially since there is legislation which grants them the freedom to determine their own rates.Government, through the Central Bank, issued a circular to cambios and the local banking sector informing them of the regulated rates for foreign currency trade.Bank of Guyana Governor, Dr Gobind GangaAccording to the circular seen by Guyana Times, non-bank cambios must reduce the spread between the buying and selling rates on foreign currency transactions to no more than G$3.This means if a cambio dealer purchases currency at G$210, then the dealer cannot sell it for more than G$213.The Bank of Guyana, in the circular signed by Governor, Dr Gobind Ganga, said this requirement must be applied in an effort to “improve the efficiency, depth and liquidity of the foreign exchange market.”The Bank of Guyana outlined that this measure is in accordance with Section 7 of the Dealers in Foreign Currency (Licencing) Act.The relevant section states that “The conditions of a licence referred to in subsection (1) may include a condition as to the furnishing of security by theThe circular dispatched by the Bank of Guyanalicensee, the amount and forfeiture thereof and the power of the Minister to vary the amount of the security from time to time.” But a few prominent cambio dealers who spoke to this newspaper contended that they have the right to set their own prices and this right is protected by the law.Indeed, Section 9 of the Act confers upon those who are licenced to carry out the business of buying and selling foreign currency to determine their own prices.According to the relevant section, “The price at which a licensee may buy or sell any foreign currency shall be determined by the licensee and shall be displayed at a prominent place on the licenced premises.”Major lossesSeveral of the cambio dealers already predict major losses with the new regulations imposed by Central Bank.One of them explained that it is unfair to restrict the trade of currency – a commodity which usually depends on world market prices.“It’s all about demand and supply. I don’t think they (Government) understand the trade.”Another dealer said that by imposing such a limit on the prices, cambio dealers stand to suffer significant loses when the world market prices fluctuate.The dealer explained that if a particular foreign currency is bought for G$150 today and then tomorrow the selling price drops to G$140 on the world market, then by forcing cambios to sell the currency at the highest $143 would be detrimental to their business.They were also concerned about the duration of this imposition and how badly it will affect their earnings in the long-term.The lawIn an invited comment, legal practitioner Anil Nandlall explained that any changes in the licence condition in accordance to Section 7 cannot interfere with the cambio dealers’ legal entitlement under Section 9.He contended that the only body with the power to adjust that entitlement is the Parliament of Guyana.“Central Bank is not above the law. Therefore, though the Central Bank has a regulatory role to play, it is enjoined to do so in accordance with law. It cannot purport to regulate by violating the law of the land. In so far as it does so, it would be acting unlawful,” the former Attorney General asserted.CondemnationFormer President and Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo already condemned in the strongest possible terms this new foreign currency policy being implemented by the Government through the Bank of Guyana.According to Jagdeo, such a move is “absolute madness” and will only hasten the decline of the economy.The People’s Progressive Party (PPP) also took a swing at the Government over this move, noting that the People’s National Congress (PNC) Government in the past had embarked upon this route before and the outcomes were devastating.An influential Private Sector operator also told <<>> that such a move would drive a lot of business underground, as already being unfolded in the mining sector with the new taxation measures.Government has also received scathing criticisms from the Private Sector Commission (PSC) when it initially announced such an intervention.The PSC also reminded that Guyana had gone down this path before with disastrous consequences to the economy. Minister of State Joseph Harmon, during a post-Cabinet press briefing, announced that the Bank of Guyana, as the regulatory body for banks and non-bank cambios, was instructed to respond with stricter regulations and closer monitoring of the foreign exchange market – following reports of foreign exchange, as well as foreign currency hoarding.Dr Ganga, in another section of the media, explained that the announced measure aims to deter investors taking advantage of the market and monopolising the trade.last_img read more

Cougars eye perfect conference record

first_imgThe game solidified team chemistry, showed the Cougars they can’t be overconfident and look ahead to the next opponent, and may have established Jones as the go-to guy at crunch time. “When I get the ball and we have a thriller going on at the end of games, I like to get the ball in my hands and forget about being nervous,” said Jones, who averages 13.7 points and four boards per game. “Unfortunately, we haven’t made plays and we put ourselves in those situations. But I am confident I can always make those shots.” Santa Monica was a team COC knew should win. But the fact that Bakersfield, the Western State Conference’s top team at the time, was next on its schedule might have caused such a close game. Jones’ shot guaranteed the Cougars a first-place tie going into the Bakersfield game. COC went on to beat Bakersfield in another close game 98-94. “Dwayne (Jones) is a dependable guy,” said Everett Bryson, the Cougars’ power forward/center. “He’s very aggressive and his talent just stands out to me. Our guys can get open, and he’s a hustler. He can get open and when he gets the ball, he’s confident he can make the shot.” Jones, a 6-foot-2, 185-pound sophomore and Cleveland High product, hit another important shot against Citrus College last week to tie the game at 66 with 38 ticks left. That set up Gino Riney’s 16-foot jumper with three seconds left for another dramatic COC win. “(Riney’s) shot won the game for us,” Jones said. “I was just lucky to get that shot to tie the game. Everyone on our team is a scoring threat. Teams like to focus on one guy. That can kill a team right there.” The Cougars (23-5, 9-0) travel to Santa Monica again at 5:30 p.m. today and will be looking to keep their perfect conference record intact. They face Bakersfield again next week. “We can’t be thinking of the next game,” Bryson said. “We want to keep our nice undefeated record and set our selves up to clinch the conference.” A win against Santa Monica (10-15, 3-6) not only could mark the only time the school has ever had a 10-0 record against conference foes, but it could set up a showdown for the championship Wednesday at Bakersfield. COC has never finished a season undefeated against its conference. The Cougars went 11-1 in conference play during the 2004-05 season when they one their second consecutive conference title.

SANTA CLARITA – The ball landed in Dwayne Jones’ lap. Teammate Andre Murray’s shot had just come up short, bouncing off the rim when Jones got the rebound and put the basketball through the hoop at the buzzer. It was a routine offensive rebound and bucket for Jones, but more importantly it was the game-wining shot for the College of the Canyons men’s basketball team against Santa Monica College Jan 17. The Cougars escaped with an 81-79 win that night, but the moment might have changed the season for coach Howard Fisher’s team. last_img read more

UEFA probes PSG after Neymar, Mbappe deals

first_img0Shares0000Paris Saint-Germain’s Brazilian forward Neymar reacts during the French L1 football match against Saint-Etienne on August 25, 2017 © AFP/File / GEOFFROY VAN DER HASSELTPARIS, France, Sep 1 – UEFA opened a formal investigation into Paris Saint-Germain on Friday after the French club broke the world transfer record to sign Neymar.European football’s governing body said it would look at whether PSG had violated its Financial Fair Play (FFP) rules. “The investigation will focus on the compliance of the club with the break-even requirement, particularly in light of its recent transfer activity,” UEFA said in a statement.PSG signed Brazilian striker Neymar for a world-record 222 million euros ($264 million) on August 3 and completed a loan move for Kylian Mbappe on Thursday in a deal that includes an option to buy the French teenager for 180 million euros.“In the coming months, the Investigatory Chamber of the UEFA Club Financial Control Body will regularly meet in order to carefully evaluate all documentation pertaining to this case,” the statement added.“UEFA considers Financial Fair Play to be a crucial governance mechanism which aims to ensure the financial sustainability of European club football.”PSG said they were “surprised” by UEFA’s decision.“The club is surprised by such a step as it has permanently kept UEFA’s Financial Fair Play teams informed of the impact of all player transactions this summer while nothing obliged it to do so,” read a statement on the PSG website.“The club is very confident in its ability to demonstrate it will perfectly respect the Financial Fair-Play rules in accordance with the financial year 2017/18.”Mbappe’s move to PSG has left many wondering how the Qatar-owned club can avoid sanctions from UEFA considering the investment already made on Neymar.According to media reports, the only clause required to be met to make the club’s option to buy Mbappe an obligatory one is for PSG to stay in the top flight this season.UEFA will have to consider whether Mbappe’s transfer fee is factored into PSG’s accounts for the current season, or whether it will carry over to the following campaign.The FFP system was first approved by UEFA in 2010 to try and combat soaring debts in the game.From 2013 to 2015 clubs could only post a net total loss of 45 million euros, which was reduced to 30 million for the next three years, running until 2018.Non-compliance with the rules can result in a series of disciplinary measures, ranging from a warning to the deduction of points, and even exclusion from European competition.PSG have already incurred sanctions for a previous violation and were slapped with a 60-million-euro fine, 40 million of which was suspended, in 2014, and saw their squad for the Champions League cut from 25 to 21 players.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Inter Milan join race for wantaway Manchester United striker

first_imgInter Milan have joined the race for wantaway Manchester United forward Javier Hernandez.The Mexican striker has returned to Old Trafford after Real Madrid opted not to make his season-long loan at the club permanent.This has opened the door for the Nerazzurri to move for the 27-year-old, who is deemed surplus to requirements under Louis van Gaal.Hernandez is about to enter the final year of his deal and United could recoup a fee for the former Guadalajara man if they offload him this summer.Under-pressure Inter manager Roberto Mancini is in the market for a new forward as the club look to build on last season’s disappointing eighth-place Serie A finish.The Italian giants have identified the predatory striker, who has hit 37 goals in 102 Premier League appearances, as someone who could make an immediate impression at the San Siro.Hernandez scored nine goals in 35 outings for Real last season but struggled for consistency as he was behind Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale in the Bernabeu pecking order.

There was a time when a visit by the “King and His Court” was the highlight of the year for any city without a major league franchise. It was as close to big-time as most cities got. Eddie Feigner was virtually as popular as any baseball player and feared by anyone who stepped into the batter’s box. Not only did the people come to see him throw a softtball close to 100 mph, but also to see him do it blindfolded and play with only three others. Many of us can recall 1967 when in two innings of an exhibition game, Feigner struck out Willie Mays, Willie McCovey, Brooks Robinson, Maury Wills, Harmon Killebrew and the late Roberto Clemente. The King and His Court are due in Loma Linda on Sept. 11 for a charity softball game to benefit the Loma Linda Children’s Hospital. A group of area all-stars of various ages will play against the traveling four-man team. This will be the last chance to catch Feigner, on the road for his 61st year. Not bad for a man who just turned 80. A site has not yet been finalized since there’s no telling how many will show up to see Feigner. The King and His Court are still attracting big numbers in his farewell tour. … Adam Johnson was a quarterback at Etiwanda High School, Chaffey College and the University of Buffalo. These days, he’s making his living as a long snapper for the Carolina Panthers. He’s easy to spot on the telecats (6-foot-5, 213 pounds), wearing number 41 and hunching over for each punt, extra point and field goal attempt. … Chuck Asiodu, a 2001 graduate of Ayala High School, has been placed on the pro prospects list by Consensus Draft Services, one of a handful of NAIA players selected. The 6-foot-5, 265-pouund Asiodu is a defensive end at Azusa Pacific, where he recorded 80 tackles last year, including 32 for loss and 14 sacks. He also carries a 3.60 GPA in business administration. Following Ayala, Asiodu played two years at Mt. San Antonio College, where he gained All-America honors. He transferred to Colorado State in 2003 but returned last year to Southern California and APU. … Young Skyler Williams of Ontario won a gold and two silver medals competing in the State of American Games in Colorado Springs representing California.

They serve as Skyler’s coaches. … Look for Chaffey College to announce its new women’s basketball coach sometime this week. The search to replace Dawn Baker attracted a solid field, which was narrowed down to five. The interview process has been completed and all that’s needed is a final OK from several levels. It’s been a quick turnaround since Baker’s resignation in late June, considering the state requirement. Of course, the late start has hampered recruiting efforts, but one should remember that Baker wasn’t named until April in 2002 and still made the playoffs all of her three years on the job. … Caltrans employees out of the District 8 office in San Bernardino are planning a tennis tournament next month at Perris Hill Park.

first_imgSome of the hundreds of phonebooks which were dumped at scenic Barnesmore Gap, in the Ballybofey to Donegal road. (NewspixIrl)Eircom has launched an investigation after hundreds of phonebooks were dumped at one of Donegal’s most scenic locations.Walkers came across several hundred of the books at Barnesmore Gap between Ballybofey and Donegal Town.The find comes following complaints by locals that they had not received their phone books in the area recently. A walker who came across the books said she was shocked by what she had found.“They were all still in their wrappers and someone had gone out of their way to get rid of them.“It was just terrible to see them just dumped there – hundreds of them.“What kind of a message is that sending out that a company as big as Eircom have had their property scattered all about the countryside,” she said.
