But it was difficult to overlook his influence as the Busmen took the competition by storm. Ceres methodically broke down and outworked the visitors in the first half, before standing its ground to preserve the clean sheet in the final 45 minutes.

Schrock repaid his faith with a performance for the ages in the second leg of the finals.The Filipino international’s work rate and vision sparked the Busmen to life, while goals from OJ Porteria and Manny Ott ensured they got the result. Porteria endured a difficult start to his career at Ceres, before the club owner went out of his way to advise him not to do “too much.” That talk allowed Porteria to settle nicely into the club, and the Busmen are slowly reaping the benefits of his rejuvenated play.The tactical acumen of Serbian coach Risto Vidakovic was also evident in the zonal finals as he deployed Schrock in midfield in lieu of the hobbling Bienve Marañon. Schrock wreaked havoc and the Busmen could have won convincingly if not for a slew of missed chances in the first half.Captains Martin Steuble and Carlie de Murga have been critical to the club’s success the past few years. And so is Ott, whose delightful free kick left Home goalkeeper Hassan Sunny no chance.“The players gave everything,” says Vidakovic. “It wasn’t easy when you miss so many chances because when that happens, you usually lose. But whoever came on gave their all for the club.”ADVERTISEMENT Marcosian mode: Duterte threatens to arrest water execs ‘one night’ Ceres Negros players and officials savor the moment after besting Home United, 3-2, on aggregate and clinching the AFC Asean Zone club title at Panaad Stadium.The man wearing the black sport shirt with the club’s yellow crest patched on his chest sat at the edge of the media tribune looking stoic as the seconds of second-half injury time ticked away.As the crowd at the jampacked Panaad Stadium in Bacolod City prepared to celebrate Ceres Negros’ historic AFC Cup Asean zone finals victory over Singapore’s Home United, club owner Leorey Yanson hardly showed any emotion. He tried to let the moment sink in, wrapping his head around the idea that the club he built five years ago was on the cusp of becoming the best team in the Southeast Asian region in the AFC Cup.ADVERTISEMENT The Panaad crowd has served as a sanctuary for the Busmen in the continental competition. They remain unbeaten in the AFC Cup at home. “We knew that our strength is at home,” says Ott. “Everybody had a clear focus for the game. Everybody still believed and the team showed strong character.”Schrock says he can’t help but be overwhelmed by the support that the club gets at home. “When you see the crowd here, you just want to give everything because you know how much this means to them,” says the former Bundesliga player who rejoined the team last April.Schrock recalls teammates breaking down in tears at the final whistle. “After the match, players were crying on the pitch because we left it all out there, the heart and the sweat. We put in the performance of our life in this final,” he says. “We have very good support here and we’re very proud to represent this city.”It’s still a long road ahead for Ceres Negros in the AFC Cup with Istiklol standing in its way in the interzone semifinals and North Korean club 4.25 and Bengaluru of India also in the hunt. The West Asia winner, which gets an outright finals spot, is also yet to be known.With performances like this against Home United, it was difficult to bet against the Busmen in their chase for continental glory. Perhaps only then can Yanson truly celebrate the greatness of his own creation.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next 787 earthquakes recorded in 24 hours due to restive Taal Volcano View comments
The 16-time Grand Slam winner had not finished the year at the top since 2013, with Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray doing so after that.“One year ago, for sure I never dreamed about being No. 1 again at the end of the season,” said Nadal, who missed large parts of 2016 because of a troublesome wrist. “It has been an amazing year.”Nadal’s comeback has been truly remarkable, even by his lofty standards.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSRedemption is sweet for Ginebra, Scottie ThompsonSPORTSMayweather beats Pacquiao, Canelo for ‘Fighter of the Decade’SPORTSFederer blasts lack of communication on Australian Open smogHe reached three Grand Slam finals this year, losing to Roger Federer at the Australian Open and winning a 10th French Open title before clinching the U.S. Open for the third time.“It was impossible for me to think about (being No. 1) coming back from a tough period without playing, and with so many injuries in the last couple of years,” said Nadal, who also finished as No. 1 in ’08 and ’10. “It means a lot. After almost 10 years since the first time.” It’s too early to present Duterte’s ‘legacy’ – Lacson Nadal is also the oldest year-ending No. 1, testimony to his relentless determination.“It’s about the passion for what you are doing. It’s about the mentality of waking up every morning with the right motivation to go on court and improve something. That’s the winning mentality, no?” he replied, when asked what drives him. “The passion to improve something and practice every day with the right attitude to try to make that happen … not everybody is able to do it.”The only downside this season has been always losing to Federer, who leads the ATP Tour with seven titles.Federer has beaten Nadal four consecutive times — not dropping a set in three of them — and the 19-time Grand Slam champion was in outside contention for the No. 1 ranking before pulling out of Paris to focus on the season-ending ATP Finals in London next week.The 21-year-old Chung broke Nadal in the ninth game of the first set and held for 5-5.

Over his 19-plus years, Kopitar put it all together. He’s now the Kings’ future, the hope of a franchise that hasn’t had much in recent years. Barring any unforeseen regression, he will be the Kings’ next Wayne Gretzky. Unfair expectations? Maybe. But Kopitar is young, big, quick and has the instincts of a player 10 years his senior. With 54 points in 61 games as a rookie, Kopitar is off to a brilliant start. But it’s just a start. “I mean, look at him. He’s still a baby,” Kings coach Marc Crawford said with wonder as Kopitar walked through the Kings training facility wearing a backward cap and looking very much like an average teenager. In appearance, yes. In terms of hockey talent, certainly not. Less than five months into his NHL career, Kopitar is the Kings’ No. 1 center and the team’s leader in average ice time among forwards. Kopitar, at 6-foot-4, 220 pounds, is a physical beast with quick hands and superb vision. He’s not afraid to carry the puck out of his own zone and, despite his obvious scoring talents, he’s a talented playmaker. The motivation? It came from the desire to put his tiny former Eastern bloc country on the hockey map. The work ethic? It sprung from childhood days spent waiting tables at his mother’s restaurant. “He’s the real deal,” said future Hall of Famer Luc Robitaille, who holds the Kings rookie scoring record with 84 points. “With the way he plays the game, he’s the kind of guy you build your team around.” Best of all for the Kings, Kopitar has the desire to be great and to do it the right way. His demeanor betrays only a quiet confidence without any hint of cockiness or entitlement. Kopitar is unlikely to win the Calder Trophy for rookie of the year – Pittsburgh’s Evgeni Malkin has 13 more points and much more hype – but Kopitar has high hopes for the Kings and himself. Asked if he has the desire to be among the next generation of NHL standouts, Kopitar said, “Always. That’s why I chose to try to make it to the NHL. I could have just stayed home and maybe be good, but I knew if I wanted to be great I had to move. I’m going to try to keep going and not just stop now and be happy.” The journey started in the town of Jesenice in Slovenia, which broke away from Yugoslavia in 1991 and had no hockey heritage of its own. NHL games were rare on Slovenian television, but with the assistance of his father, Matjaz, a well-regarded coach in Slovenia’s pro league, Kopitar learned quickly. The Kopitars obtained videos of NHL games and Anze quickly took to the style of Fedorov and became something to watch. “I learned fast because I was usually the young guy,” Kopitar said. “When I was 14 or 15 I was playing with guys two or three years older than me and even then, they counted on me to be a leader.” At age 15, Kopitar played in an under-18 league in Slovenia and scored 38 goals and had 38 assists in 14 games. Those astounding numbers led to him being signed by a Slovenian pro team later that season. Kopitar averaged a point per game in two seasons in Slovenia, but his big move came in 2004 when he left to play in the Swedish Elite League. He spent most of the year on the juniors team, but did well enough to get picked in the first round, 11th overall, by the Kings in the 2005 draft. Kopitar had been highly rated, but some teams questioned his background. No player from Slovenia had ever made the NHL. Would Kopitar’s talent measure up? “Coming from a country that wasn’t on the hockey radar,” Kings general manager Dean Lombardi said, “he had to prove himself at every stage. He just played and didn’t have to worry about sideshows.” email@example.com (818) 713-3607 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

It turns out that steel mill town in northern Slovenia gave Kopitar all he needed. The talent? It blossomed, nurtured by a hockey coach father and assisted by videos of Sergei Fedorov.

Fianna Fáil Spokesperson on Education Charlie McConalogue has revealed that more than 1,000 students across Donegal are still waiting for their grant applications to be processed.Figures released to Deputy McConalogue reveal that of the 2,877 students from Donegal who applied for grants this year, less than 1,000 of these had been awarded by the beginning of December, and only a fraction of these students had actually received grants.A further 423 Donegal students have been rejected. The latest figures show that as of the beginning of this month, 1,473 Donegal students were still waiting for their grants to be processed. “It is clear that this crisis has not gone away, despite attempts by the Education Minister Ruairí Quinn to downplay it,” said Deputy McConalogue.“The fact that more than half of all grant applications from Donegal still hadn’t been processed by the beginning of December is extremely worrying. Even of the applications that have been processed, a high proportion of these students haven’t actually received a payment yet.“Despite all Minister Quinn’s promises, the vast majority of students will be waiting well into the New Year for their grants. I have already spoken to a number of students from Donegal who are experiencing enormous difficulties as a result of these unacceptable delays and who are at risk of dropping out of third level altogether. The longer this is allowed to linger, the greater the likelihood that many students simply will not be able to afford to stay in college.“How can Minister Quinn allow this to happen? It seems that all his focus has been on spinning the figures to make this situation look more palatable than it is. But students don’t want to hear talk of processes and systems, they just want to know when they will actually get the money they are entitled to. They also don’t want to hear Minister Quinn’s ‘it’s the students fault’ defence. The tactic of blaming students for the high level of unprocessed and ‘incomplete’ grant applications is a cheap shot. Students from lower income families who are in need of state support to stay in college are not the ones dragging their heels here. “It is the lack of certainty that is causing the most distress for students and their families. It is time for Minister Quinn to stop worrying about his PR, and start being upfront with students about when exactly they will see their grants. I am calling on him to immediately state how many students in Donegal and across the country will actually receive a grant before Christmas.”MORE THAN 1,400 DONEGAL STUDENTS STILL WAITING ON GRANT – TD was last modified: December 14th, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:400 DONEGAL STUDENTS STILL WAITING ON GRANT – TDMORE THAN 1

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week Firms that succeed in the second phase can apply for a third phase to commercialize their product or service. Phase III requires the firms to obtain private financing or non-SBIR federal funding. Overall, 124 small, high-technology firms in 34 states will share about $84 million in Phase II contracts awarded by NASA this year, with several receiving more than one contract. The 140 projects funded were selected from 273 proposals submitted by firms completing SBIR Phase I projects. The firms and their winning proposals include: Kalscott Engineering Inc., Topeka, Kan. Kalscott will develop a miniaturized transponder – a device that identifies planes to air traffic controllers – for unmanned aircraft, giving their operators improved situational awareness and helping unmanned aircraft fly safely in American skies. Rolling Hills Research Corp., El Segundo. The firm will refine an approach to control the transition from smooth to turbulent airflow during low-speed flight at high altitude. The idea is intended to reduce drag and is promising for use on tiny unmanned aircraft, high-altitude long-endurance aircraft, Mars exploratory fliers and propeller systems. EDWARDS AIR FORCE BASE – NASA Dryden Flight Research Center selected five small high-technology firms for research and development contracts under the second phase of a small-business innovation program. The five firms’ proposals were among 140 selected for funding by NASA overall and are valued at up to $600,000 each over a two-year performance period. Rodney Bogue, NASA Dryden’s Small Business Innovation Research program manager, said the selections were based in part on each firm’s performance under an earlier contact. “Phase I awards support evaluation of the scientific or technical merit of a proposed concept and are funded up to a maximum of $70,000 for a six-month period,” Bogue said. “Phase II selections are made from high-performing Phase I projects and are oriented to development of a marketable product. Between 40 and 50 percent of Phase I contracts are selected for the Phase II follow-on.” Continuum Dynamics Inc., Ewing, N.J. The firm will continue developing a flight control actuator based on “shaped memory alloy” wires, requiring less weight, power and space than existing techniques for unmanned aircraft. The wires will replace hinge joints on flaps, reducing drag. Zona Technology Inc., Scottsdale, Ariz. The firm will refine a nonlinear model methodology used in flutter prediction applications to improve flight test safety. Research South Inc., Huntsville, Ala. The firm will develop a technique for generating an optimized grid to be used with computational fluid dynamics analysis, incorporating it into a software package for government and commercial use. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
