He genuinely only wanted to help.”The PFF official said it’s time the federation gets its acts together to ensure that a similar result doesn’t happen.“We need to look at our shortcomings as an organization,” said Palami.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Trending Articles PLAY LIST 00:50Trending Articles00:50Trending Articles00:50Trending Articles02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award Phivolcs records 2 ‘discrete weak ash explosions’ at Taal Volcano Kiss-and-tell matinee idol’s conquests: True stories or tall tales?

6 February 2013The state of South Africa’s economy and the implementation of the country’s National Development Plan will top the agenda at the special four-day Cabinet meeting which began in Pretoria on Tuesday.“It is at this meeting that we are hoping we will be able to discuss the implementation of the National Development Plan, with the understanding that the plan in some areas calls for tough decisions to be taken,” Minister for Performance Monitoring and Evaluation Collins Chabane told reporters at the start of the meeting.The meeting comes at a time when there is uncertainty in the country’s mining sector, with platinum giant Amplats reporting a R6.3-billion loss and facing the threat of retrenchments.However, Mineral Resources Minister Susan Shabangu moved to allay fears of instability in the sector when she told the 2013 Mining Indaba in Cape Town on Tuesday that South Africa was committed to creating a thriving and successful mining industry.She pointed out that the number of mines had increased from 993 in 2004 to 1 600 to date, while associated revenue grew from R98-billion in the same year to R370-billion by the end of 2011.Chabane could not say whether the situation in the mining sector would form part of discussions in the Cabinet meeting, only saying the extended meeting would discuss ways of sustaining economic growth, with a particular focus on the upcoming BRICS summit to be hosted by South Africa for the first time.Source: SANews.gov.za

ESCONDIDO (KUSI) – A man who was shot after he allegedly attacked a sheriff’s deputy with a baseball bat in Fallbrook was charged today with assault with a deadly weapon on a peace officer.Arraignment for 30-year-old Jesus Cirilo Rodriguez at the Palomar Medical Center was postponed until Jan. 11 when it was determined that he was medically unfit for the proceeding.Rodriguez faces five years in prison if convicted, said Deputy District Attorney Michael Runyon.The Sheriff’s Department said Deputy David Cortez was investigating reports of unprovoked assaults with a bat around 4:30 a.m. Friday when he found himself under the same kind of attack, allegedly from Rodriguez.Cortez — a deputy since 2011 — was sitting in an unmarked car in the area of Reche and Ranger roads in Fallbrook when the attack occurred, said sheriff’s Lt. Rich Williams.Deputies had received three reports of unprovoked baseball bat attacks near the area in the last two days and were conducting surveillance, Williams said.During the surveillance, a man — identified as Rodriguez — walked up and allegedly smashed the window of Cortez’s vehicle, shattering glass over the interior and prompting the deputy to open fire in self-defense, Williams said.Rodriguez was shot multiple times but is expected to survive.

Kolkata: The state Health department has issued a notification to Namita Biswas Memorial Eye Hospital in Garia’s Middle Town area, after it failed to renew registration.It has been learnt that the Health department asked the private hospital authorities not to admit patients, after it found some infrastructural lapses in the hospital. The hospital authorities, however, claimed that the Health department has given them verbal consent to continue normal functioning. A senior official of the hospital said that they were asked to stop functioning for two days as the registration was not renewed with the Health department. The hospital authorities, however, urged the health authorities for a relaxation.According to sources, the private eye hospital was running without a valid registration for quite some time. No hospital can operate without a valid registration from the Health department.A question appears here on how a private health establishment could admit patients when it had no valid clearance from the state Health department.
