The energy that the guys brought, I just wanted to be a part of that,” he said. “I was fortunate to end up on the winning side and fortunate as well to be a part of it even though I wasn’t suited up.”The best that Rosser could do was to show his full support and take down notes while watching his teammates compete for the title.“I learned that to win a championship it takes more than skill. With these guys, they have the drive, the passion and whether we’re up or down, they’re gonna go hard no matter what and I wanted to be a part of that so bad.”ADVERTISEMENT Ethel Booba on hotel’s clarification that ‘kikiam’ is ‘chicken sausage’: ‘Kung di pa pansinin, baka isipin nila ok lang’ LOOK: Jane De Leon meets fellow ‘Darna’ Marian Rivera LATEST STORIES View commentslast_img read more

Basketball player Carmelo Anthony says playing with Amar’e Stoudemire was “one of the reasons I wanted to come to New York.”Now that his Knicks teammate is struggling with another knee injury, Anthony is having a difficult time watching Stoudemire go through the agony of recovery.“As a friend, it’s hard for me to sit back and act like it doesn’t bother me because I know how hard of a worker he is [and] I know the time that he puts in the gym to train and rehab,” Anthony said Tuesday. “To see him go forward and then take some steps back every time, it’s just sad.”According to reports, Stoudemire will miss the Knicks’ first three preseason games. Stoudemire is rehabbing from knee surgery he received over the summer, his third in the past year.“I’m still getting stronger, still getting the legs strong enough to withstand the pressure of playing, but progress has been great so far,” Stoudemire said.The 11-year veteran only played 29 regular season games in 2012-13, when he also had two separate knee procedures. read more

The names which will be unveiled this week, include a retired Supreme Court Justice as Chairman, a retired senior Customs officer and a public accountant. These individuals will also serve as members of the Customs Appeal Commission.The VAT Appeal Commission will operate independently of the VAT Department and the Ministry of Finance.If a VAT registrant is unhappy with any decision made by the VAT Comptroller, they may lodge an appeal with the Commission. An appellant who is aggrieved by a decision of the Commission may appeal the decision, but on matters of law only, to the Supreme Court.The timing of the appointment of the Commission is critical at this juncture, as enforcement activities and rulings of the VAT Department become more entrenched. The appointments are with effect from January 21, 2015.

first_imgLuiz Inacio Lula da SilvaBrazil’s top electoral court on Friday barred jailed former president Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva from running in this year’s presidential because of his corruption conviction.The widely expected decision removes a cloud hanging over Brazil’s most uncertain election in decades – though Lula’s lawyers have said they would appeal an adverse decision to the Supreme Court.“What is at stake here today is the equality of all citizens before the law and the Constitution,” Judge Og Fernandes told the court in his vote to declare Lula ineligible.Judge Admar Gonzaga, who as a lawyer worked for Lula’s handpicked successor Dilma Rousseff’s 2010 election, cast the decisive vote in the 6-1 decision that sealed the leftist icon’s ejection from the presidential election.Lula, Brazil’s most popular politician, is serving a 12-year sentence for a corruption conviction. His Workers Party registered him as its presidential candidate for the 7 October vote anyway, saying he is innocent.Lula is ineligible for office under Brazil’s “Clean Slate” law, which prohibits candidates from running if they have convictions that have been upheld on appeal.Despite his conviction and several graft cases pending against him, Lula leads the race by a long stretch, with 39 per cent of voter support, according to pollster Datafolha. His nearest rival, far-right candidate Jair Bolsonaro, has 19 per cent.Ads by the Workers Party calling on Brazilians to vote for Lula began to appear on social media on Friday, and will be shown on television as of Saturday when the race enters its final 35 days of campaigning.A party statement said the court had bowed to the wishes of Brazil’s elites to stop Lula returning to office. The court had also ignored a recommendation by the United Nations Human Rights Committee to restore Lula’s political rights which he appeals his conviction, it said.Vice-presidential running mate Fernando Haddad, a former mayor of Sao Paulo, is expected to head the ticket hoping to inherit the bulk of Lula’s votes.The party has until 17 September to swap their names on the ballot, though the court gave it 10 days to make the change.The court also ruled that Lula should not appear in the Workers Party’s television and radio ads campaign until the ticket has been officially altered to remove him.The court on Thursday had rejected another request by opponents of Lula to exclude his name from opinion polls.last_img read more
