The volcano is located about 249 kilometers (155 miles) southeast of Manila.The area immediately surrounding the Bulusan Volcano is mostly rural. There are several villages, but most are outside the danger zone, according to PHILVOCS. The most recent eruption, which took place before dawn local time on Sunday lasted about 20 minutes, according to the agency.In declaring an “Alert Level 1,” the agency warned nearby residents not to enter the 4-kilometer “permanent danger zone” because of possible steam and ash explosions.

Indee holds season championship events

first_imgSiems raced to the front and Olson raced too high in turn four and dropped his right rear off the track which caused him to drop way back in the field. Olson charged back through the pack to earn a top five, crossing under the checkers one position behind Siems. With the finish, Olson and Siems tied in points earned but Olson held the tie breaker in feature wins earning him the track championship.  The IMCA Sunoco Late Models decided their season championships a week ago but ran a draw/redraw show on Saturday. Sean Johnson ended the season on a high note by scoring his third consecutive feature win.  Wroten then charged back to the front as a young lady on a mission. When the checkers flew it was Holtz taking the win with Schmitt in second, Kevin Rose was in third and Wroten raced all the way back to fourth. The finish ended the season point standings in a tie with Schmitt and Wroten and the tie breaker was feature wins with Wroten holding the advantage.  By Jerry Mackey  The same scenario played out in the Karl Kustoms Northern SportMods. Tony Olson came into the night with a one point advantage in the season standings ahead of Kip Siems. Troy Bauer took the lead early and raced out front the entire main event as the battle for the track champion­ship unfolded behind him. The IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars came into the night with Leah Wroten holding a two-point ad­vantage over Tom Schmitt. Wroten needed to finish no more than two positions behind Schmitt to earn the season championship. With Phil Holtz racing out front and both Schmitt and Wroten headed to the front, Wroten was involved in a skirmish that sent her to the back of the 20-car field. INDEPENDENCE, Iowa (Aug. 8) – Saturday saw the 2020 IMCA Speedway Motors Weekly Rac­ing season come to an end with the running of season championship races at Independence Mo­tor Speedway and several division titles were decided in dramatic fashion.center_img Wroten stated in victory lane, “Winning a track championship was not even on our radar this year, as a rookie in the IMCA Stock Car class all I wanted to do was get seat time and finish races.”  Hibdon took the lead early and appeared to have the race in the bag until his mentor chased him down and made a late-race charge to the win. Aikey scored his first Indee IMCA Modified track title as well as winning the season championship main event.  The IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stocks saw a first-time winner make his way to victory lane. Marcus Wayne scored his first win at his hometown track.

We’re investigating ownership of Osun United — Commissioner

first_imgYemi Lawal, the Osun State Commissioner for Youths and Sports, on Sunday in Osogbo said the state government was investigating the ownership of the supposedly state-owned football club, Osun United.Lawal made the disclosure during a question and answer session with sports enthusiasts and journalists. He also said the whole sports set up in the state would equally undergo restructuring for effective management by the state government.He said: “The ownership of Osun United has come into contention because available records show that it was registered with the Corporate Affairs Commission by four individuals and not the state government.”Lawal said the record of registration of the club showed that the four individuals registered the club in the tune of N5 million shares.He said: “Two of them are having N1.5 million shares each, while the other two shareholders have N1 million each.”He said one Baderinwa, Lawal Abiola and one Gboyega were names he could remember as registered owners of the club. “The claim that the administration of a former governor of Osun, Bisi Akande, sold the club is also being investigated to know if it was truly sold at any time and to whom or those it was sold,” the Commissioner said.Lawal said a clarification would also be provided as to whether the defunct Prime FC of Osogbo was the same club which metamorphosed into the current Osun United FC.The Commissioner however said there would be clarification on whether the present Osun United was different from the one registered and owned by the four identified individuals.He disclosed that a sports restructuring committee had been set up by the state government.Lawal said the investigation’s outcome and reports as well as the committee’s findings would be out in the next six weeks to eight weeks to enable the state government take its decision. He added: “There is so much wrong with Osun sports and I believe we, as a government, have the responsibility to take the bull by the horns and look at the issues and get them resolved.“What is important is to show the right leadership and tackle all issues and ensure things are done the right way.“We don’t have processes and we have to deviate from the era where we do things based on sentiments.“Everything must be done on merit.”RelatedPosts Buratai defends Buhari in Osun + photos SWAN condemns suspension of Osun United, Osun Babes players’ salaries We’ll ensure smooth take-off of Federal College of Education in Osun – Oyetola The commissioner further explained why the salaries of players and officials of Osun United and Osun Babes were suspended.Lawal said: “It was based on the petition written to the governor to investigate the hiring of 31 contract coaches.“The matter had been on since February, before the decision to stop their salaries was taken by the state governor (Gbeyega Oyetola).”Lawal added that the sports restructuring committee was set up to holistically look at the issues and anomalies in the system, adding: “So, it will recommend the next line of action to take concerning the salary suspension.”Lawal, however, promised that as soon as the investigation was completed, those found to be behind the anomalies in the sports system would be brought to book.The commissioner also assured that those found to be innocent would be reinstated into the state’s sports system.Tags: Bisi AkandeGboyega OyetolaOsun BabesPrime FCYemi Lawallast_img read more

Evra: Critics want us to fail

first_img The France full-back added: “In the seven years I have been here, it has always been the same. When you lose one game it is like the end of the world. If you don’t accept this pressure, you can’t play for Manchester United.” What irritates Evra more is that United’s critics prefer to ignore the positive aspects of their play. For instance, at the start of the season, when they were continually hauling themselves back from losing positions, few looked at the battling qualities shown, preferring instead to concentrate on their leaky defence. More recently, questions have been asked why the Red Devils have been so lacklustre, rather than focus on the 22 points collected from 27 since Gary Neville singled out David de Gea for criticism at Tottenham. Even after their Champions League exit to Real Madrid, the hangover from which still appears to be lingering, United have collected 10 points from five games. “It is right,” said Evra. “In the beginning of the season, Manchester United was not doing well, we always had to come back. “But we did keep winning. People forget we are a marathon team. The league is not a sprint. People just want to see us playing well in a big game against City, or Liverpool. “This is not the way to win a league. Of course you want to win against the big teams. But it is about how many games you win. I thought why are people talking. We are 12 or 15 points clear but they keep saying Manchester United this or that. If that is what they want to do, OK. But in the end, if we get to lift the trophy we will see who is right.” Patrice Evra accepts Manchester United will never get true recognition for their achievements because so many critics want them to fail. United are closing in on a record 20th league title which they can secure on Monday following Manchester City’s 3-1 defeat at Tottenham. Victory against Aston Villa at Old Trafford will also set them up for a four match run-in where maximum points would allow them to overhaul Chelsea’s record Premier League total of 95 points. Yet it seems destined to be a championship collected with caveats. For few think this is one of Sir Alex Ferguson’s best teams, let alone the finest since the league was changed in 1992. It is not something particularly understood within the Red Devils camp – but then Evra is not that bothered about it, saying: “People want to see Manchester United fall down.” center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Father charged after bending baby backwards until he heard a pop

first_imgA father from Arizona is now facing child abuse charges after he reportedly injured his 1-month-old daughter by bending her backward until he heard a popping sound.Officials say they were alerted to the incident after the father took the child to Phoenix Children’s Hospital and the medical staff examining her found that the child had extreme injuries from both the past and the present.The father, 22-year-old Adan Flores told medical staff that the child was injured after a relative accidently sat on her, however, doctors reported that none of the injuries matched what Flores told them.According to the report, the 1-month hold had  fractured legs, a damaged liver, hemorrhaging eyes, and bleeding from her mouth.  In addition to that, the child also had multiple recent and healing fractures on her ribs.When authorities spoke to Flores he admitted that he put the baby on a bed on her knees and bent her backwards until he heard a popping sound. He then began squeezing her in an effort to get her to stop crying.He also admitted to twisting her legs until he heard them pop and shoving a thermometer into her mouth.Investigators say Flores then told them that he hesitated to take the child to the hospital initially because he knew DCF would be contacted and that the child’s mother would find out what he did and leave him.The child’s mother was reportedly in the shower at the time of the incident.Flores has since been arrested and charged with six counts of child abuse. His bail has been set at $100,000.last_img read more

MLAX : Drew rejoins team as Syracuse begins preseason camp

first_img Comments Kevin Drew returned to the Syracuse men’s lacrosse team for the start of spring practice Thursday, nearly three months after being arrested for driving while intoxicated, a hit-and-run and resisting arrest.The senior defensive midfielder was reinstated for classes at SU for the spring semester, and Orange head coach John Desko said he made a ‘difficult decision’ and allowed Drew to rejoin the team. Following Drew’s arrest, Desko indefinitely suspended him from the team.‘Kevin’s done quite a bit,’ Desko said during SU’s annual media day last Thursday. ‘He wasn’t in school last semester, lost everything academically, financially. He’s not a full scholarship guy. He’s done quite a bit, and he’s going to continue to deal with the consequences. He’s got things he has to do here for the team and for the university.’Drew was arrested at about 3:30 a.m. Oct. 24 on the 1500 block of Lancaster Avenue after a Syracuse police officer saw a 2007 Chevrolet TrailBlazer hit a car on the 400 block of Broad Street and continue driving, according to court documents. The officer chased the TrailBlazer at 50 mph until Drew finally pulled over. The senior refused to get out of the car with his hands up despite the officer’s orders.Once Drew did get out of the car, he got into an ‘aggressive stance’ as the officer approached him, and a second officer kicked him in the chest to knock him to the ground.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textPolice discovered the TrailBlazer is registered to Desko and is the car Desko’s son, SU attack Tim Desko, drives. Neither Desko nor Tim Desko knew Drew took the car.Drew’s court appearance was scheduled for Dec. 7, but it was postponed until Feb. 1 after his attorney’s request for an adjournment was approved by presiding City Court Judge Vanessa Bogan.At the Orange’s annual media day Thursday, Drew said he was glad to be back with the team and was appreciative of the support his teammates and coaches have shown him. Still, he said the incident isn’t something he can simply erase from his mind.‘I’m just thankful no one got hurt, and I definitely learned a lot,’ Drew said. ‘It was an eye-opening experience, and I definitely learned so much when I was at home. Now, just moving forward and never forgetting about it, just moving past it and moving on and just getting out there and playing a little bit in practice.’Academically, Drew said he’s looking forward to finishing all of his classes to graduate and will accept any disciplinary action without hesitation. He also said several former players have reached out to him expressing their support.Drew said he has spoken with John Desko about what’s specifically expected of him, but he wanted to keep the details of the conversation private. Drew’s role on the team for the 2012 season is uncertain, but he said he’ll accept whatever position his coaches place him in.‘I knew I was going to go through a lot, but I’m just happy to be at school and trying to graduate,’ Drew said. ‘That’s the big thing right now, is to graduate and get out of here with a degree, so I’m just happy about that. And then whatever comes with lacrosse is a bonus for me. I’m just happy to be with my teammates.’Junior midfielder Steve Ianzito, a close friend of Drew, said he has seen the situation take its toll on Drew emotionally.Being back with the team and receiving its support is the best situation for Drew, Ianzito said.‘Kevin knows he made a mistake, and he let the Orange community down a little bit,’ Ianzito said. ‘But he’s definitely faced his consequences, and he’s ready to repay that. We’re all happy to have him back.’cjiseman@syr.edu—A previous of this article appeared on dailyorange.com on Jan. 12.
