Cardona finished with four points and two rebounds in a 109-99 loss. Tristan Tamayo/INQUIRER.netMac Cardona quest to make it back to the PBA has ended with GlobalPort on Sunday.Falling on hard times last year, the 35-year-old Cardona was able to pick up the pieces and he feels rejuvenated after being given a second chance.ADVERTISEMENT The former La Salle standout didn’t deny that he felt overwhelmed with his return.“I feel goosebumps that it’s like I’m back in the UAAP. When I was gone for almost a year, I was able to rest and I felt excited to play again,” said Cardona, who had four points and two rebounds in eight minutes of action.Cardona’s journey back into the PBA started in the PBA D-League where newcomer Zark’s Burger signed him up to play a couple of games in the 2017 Foundation Cup.“It was like a sign from the Lord that when they called me to play in the D-League, I still can make it back playing basketball,” he said.It didn’t take long the opportunity for a PBA return came knocking and it was his former college coach at La Salle in Franz Pumaren, who gave him the shot in his road to redemption.ADVERTISEMENT View comments Brace for potentially devastating typhoon approaching PH – NDRRMC Even if his return ended in a 99-109 defeat to NLEX, which ironically, is the previous PBA team he played for before a drug overdose in an apparent suicide attempt nearly ended his life, Cardona remains grateful for his new beginning, sharing that he has already moved past that dark chapter and is now hoping to live his life to the fullest.“Whatever happened to me in the past — I know I’ve made mistakes — but I tried to move on because I can no longer take those back. I’m just grateful for all the support that I got because if not for them, I wouldn’t have had my drive to get back here. I’m moving forward,” he said.

MI vs RPS: MS Dhoni breaches 400-run mark in IPL playoffs with Wankhede special

first_imgMahendra Singh Dhoni brought out the full range of shots from his arsenal and plundered an unbeaten 40 off just 26 balls as Rising Pune Supergiant defeated Mumbai Indians by 20 runs in the first qualifier on Tuesday night. Dhoni was at his destructive best, smashing 40 off 26 balls in the death overs to propel Pune to 162 for four before young off-spinner Sundar took three important wickets that led to Mumbai falling short with 142 for nine in Qualifier 1.It was Pune’s third win over Mumbai in as many games this season, providing them with an opportunity to win the coveted trophy in only their second season.Mumbai, who had topped the group stages, remain in the competition and will meet the winner of tomorrow’s Eliminator, between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Kolkata Knight Riders, in Qualifier 2 on Friday.Dhoni was promoted up the order to No. 4 and the move worked perfectly for the visitors, who were struggling early on in the match when they were reduced to 9/2 in the second over. Manoj Tiwary (58) and Ajinkya Rahane then bailed their team out of trouble and added 80 runs for the third wicket before the latter departed after a well-made 56.Dhoni then came out to bat and like he usually does, took some time to settle in, before launching into Mitchell McClenaghan and Jasprit Bumrah in the death overs. Dhoni plundered five sixes during his knock and added 73 runs with Tiwary for the fourth-wicket to help the team reach a challenging total.With the pitch playing unusually slow, anything over 150 was a tricky target despite Mumbai batting deep.advertisementSundar sent back opposition skipper Rohit Sharma, Ambati Rayudu and Kieron Pollard in a space of 12 balls to leave Mumbai gasping at 51 for four in eight overs.Parthiv Patel (52 off 40) was solid at the other end and even used the long handle effectively to smash three sixes on the on side.He eventually ran out of partners with Pandya brothers too back in the pavilion leaving Mumbai at 101 for six in the 15th over. Patel too fell three balls later, leaving the tail- enders to do too much in the end with 60 runs needed off the last 30 balls.Dhoni has been lethal for Pune whenever he has batted in the No. 4 position. Before this knock he had 119 runs at 39.66 and a strike rate of over 146 in the four times he has come out to bat in that position.The 35-year-old also has a terrific record in the playoffs of the IPL and he took his tally to 437 runs in 15 innings at over 44. Dhoni also loves to bat against the Mumbai Indians in this stage of the tournament. He has scored 194 runs against MI in six innings in the playoffs at an average of over 51 with three half-centuries.last_img read more

Bill Simmons Blasts ESPN For Reporting False Information Regarding Deflategate

first_imgBill Simmons during a photo shoot.Bill SimmonsBill Simmons isn’t done ripping his old employer. Earlier this week, the former ESPN star accused Stephen A. Smith and other Worldwide Leader reporters of leaking anti-Tom Brady material to help the NFL in its Deflategate case. Now, he’s going after the network’s reporting.Saturday, Simmons criticized ESPN for publishing a timeline of Deflategate that includes Chris Mortensen’s report that 11 of the 12 balls used in the first half of New England’s contest against the Indianapolis Colts were “significantly underinflated.” Mortensen’s original report stated that 11 of the 12 balls were underinflated by 2 pounds per square inch – and it was later corrected after the Ted Wells report. The correction stated that 11 of the 12 balls were underinflated, ranging up to 2 pounds per square inch.Clearly, Simmons doesn’t think the piece of news should be included at all.ESPN’s DeflateGate timeline includes Mort’s 11 of 12 “significantly deflated” report like it was true. Hilarious.https://t.co/b1MuJrctYs— Bill Simmons (@BillSimmons) July 16, 2016At this point, it doesn’t look like Simmons is going to stop blasting ESPN any time soon.last_img read more

US judge returns foster mothers passport days after child abandonment charge dropped

first_imgHouston: The Indian-American foster mother of Sherin Mathews has got her passport back, nearly a week after charges were dropped against her in connection with the tragic death of her 3-year-old daughter, whose body was discovered in a culvert in suburban Dallas in 2017. Sini Mathews was charged with child endangerment after she left her adoptive daughter Sherin alone at home while she and her husband Wesley Mathews went out for dinner with their 4-four-year old biological daughter on the night before the toddler was reported missing from their house in Richardson, Texas. Also Read – Imran Khan arrives in China, to meet Prez Xi Jinping Sini had been jailed on a child abandonment charge, but the charge was dismissed after the district attorney said there was not enough evidence to move forward and released her from the Dallas County Jail. On Thursday, a Dallas judge ordered authorities to return Sini’s passport, WBAP, an AM News/Talk radio station in Dallas reported. Defence attorney Heath Harris said the judge had little choice but to return the passport which was taken when Sini was arrested. He said Sini had no plans to go anywhere, but can do so if she chooses so. Also Read – US blacklists 28 Chinese entities over abuses in Xinjiang “I am blessed,” Sini, a nurse, said after the charges against her were dropped and told the media that she was looking forward to meeting her biological daughter. “I want to thank the DA’s office for dismissing the case and I am looking forward to being reunited with my daughter,” Sini said. She had lost parental rights to her biological daughter who has been adopted by her relatives in Houston. Lawyers are now reviewing options to possibly return her to her mother, Sini, the WBAP report said. Sini’s husband Wesley is still in Dallas County Jail for capital murder linked to Sherin’s death. He will face trial in May this year and is presently being held on a USD 1.1 million bond. Sini and Wesley, who hail from Kerala, adopted Sherin from an orphanage in Bihar in July 2016. After Sherin disappeared, Wesley had first claimed that he had punished her by making her stand outside their home at 3 am for not drinking her milk. After Sherin’s body was found in a culvert a kilometre from their home in October, 2017, Wesley then changed his version to he had tried to feed her the milk and that she choked on it. Wesley was indicted for capital murder by a grand jury and for tampering with evidence. Wesley, if convicted, could face the death penalty or an automatic sentence of life without parole. An autopsy report in January 2018 showed that Sherin died of homicidal violence. Sherin’s case had attracted international attention and the Indian government had revoked the Overseas Citizenship of India (OCI) immigration status of Wesley and Sini.last_img read more

Around 700 join BJP during FB live session hosted by Tiwari

first_imgNew Delhi: Around 700 persons joined the BJP during an hour long Facebook live session hosted by party’s Delhi unit chief Manoj Tiwari on Thursday. Tiwari welcomed the new members of the party saying their membership will be formalised within a week. “The Facebook live session that lasted for around an hour reached to over four lakh persons and more than 2,000 persons interacted with the Delhi BJP president. Around 700 persons became members of the party in this unique digital initiative,” said Delhi BJP’s social media and media co-incharge Neelkant Bakshi.Tiwari said not only supporters of the BJP but even people of the country were working actively to ensure victory of the party to make Narendra Modi Prime Minister of the country for the second term. Answering a question on full statehood, Tiwari said his party had promised a “review” of full statehood. “We had promised a review of the full statehood but no one had expected that an elected Chief Minister like Arvind Kejriwal would threaten to obstruct Republic Day parade,” Tiwari said. He said anyone joining the BJP would do so because the Congress was “exposed” as it had failed to deliver when it was in power. In the live chat, Tiwari said by not implementing the Ayushman Bharat scheme in Delhi, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal thought that he can deny credit of the scheme to Prime Minister Narendra Modi. “Its unfortunate that benefits of the scheme are being denied to Delhiites. Its a sign of ‘Vinash Kale Vipreet Buddhi'”. The event was coordinated by media team of Delhi including incharge of media and social media team Pratyush Kanth and convener Ashok Goyal. Recently, the Delhi BJP chief had interacted with Twitter users in a ‘Twitter Chaupal’ at Burari in North East Delhi constituency represented by him in the Lok Sabha. The social media team has also planned regular appearances of Tiwari on different online platforms to woo voters, specially youngsters.last_img read more
