Journeyman Lee Gwan Hee says PBA stint helped his career

first_imgAllen Durham still determined to help Meralco win 1st PBA title Lee was part of Phoenix’s inaugural team that competed in the PBA 2015-2016 season with the Korean wingman playing in the league’s Governors’ Cup.This was the season that the league experimented with having an Asian import and Lee, despite playing just an average of 17.3 minutes per game during the eliminations, had his best game in the playoffs.Lee averaged 7.6 points in the eliminations but exploded for 24 points, on 9-of-10 shooting, with six rebounds, three assists, one steal, and one block but it came in a 136-125 loss to TNT.The 6-foot-2 Korean even joked that he should be playing overseas instead of Korea.“Maybe Korea isn’t the place where I need to play,” joked Lee as he poked fun at his Seoul head coach Lee Sangmin. “Definitely the time I played in the Philippines helped be become a better player.”ADVERTISEMENT 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 Lee, though, is back with his old team in Seoul and he was instrumental in the Samsung Thunders’ 85-73 dismantling of Shandong in the Asia League The Terrific 12.Seoul, with great help from Lee, advanced to the semifinals of the pocket tournament held here in Macau and will face Guangzhou in the penultimate round.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSJapeth Aguilar wins 1st PBA Finals MVP award for GinebraSPORTSGolden State Warriors sign Lee to multiyear contract, bring back ChrissLee, though, credited his stint in the Philippines as a major help in his development as a basketball player.“Because of the time I played in the Philippines, I have confidence in playing abroad so that’s why I can do good in Japan and Macau,” said Lee with the help of a translator Wednesday at Studio City Events Center.

PPP declares no confidence in Procurement Commission

first_img…says lukewarm commitment made to investigate scandalsIn September, the parliamentary Opposition had written to the Public Procurement Commission (PPC) to investigate the award of a contract to Dutch company, LievenseCSO, for a feasibility study into the new Demerara River bridge.It had also sought an investigation into the D’Urban Park Project and the Government’s rental of a “bond” at Sussex Street for drug storage. However, according to the People’s Progressive Party, in separate responses, the Commission has said it will investigate all three matters.The D’Urban Park Project is another matter to be examinedBut the Opposition has little confidence in a thorough probe being done, Opposition Chief Whip Gail Teixeira declared on Saturday at a press conference. According to Teixeira, this is due to the fact that while Chairperson Carol Corbin promised to look into the matters raised with the relevant entities, she also wrote that this would be done “within the confines of (the Commission’s) work programme and available resources.”On Saturday, the Opposition party expressed concern about the Commission’s response, noting that the law mandates it has to investigate complaints. Teixeira, who wrote requesting the probe of the feasibility contract, even described the Commission’s response as scary, when its responsibilities are considered.“The issue to flag is that phrase, within the confines of our work programme and available resources. Now the Constitution makes it absolutely clear that once there is a complaint, the PPC has to investigate it.”“It cannot say, well we have a work programme and we have these 10 items, we have to do these first. Or we don’t have enough resources. This is unacceptable, this is a constitutional body,” Teixeira expressed.Teixeira bluntly stated that she had no confidence the Commission would do an investigation.Representatives of Dutch Company LievenseCSO hand over their feasibility study to Minister within the Public Infrastructure Ministry Annette Ferguson. The PPP requested a probe in this matterAccountable agenciesMeanwhile, former Attorney General Anil Nandlall sought to stress that even constitutional agencies can be held accountable. He noted that since the Commission spends millions in taxpayers’ money, it is accountable to the people.“All (such) institutions must understand that (they) are accountable, though they are the beacon of accountability and perhaps one of the chief scrutinisers of public spending. With the intent of deciphering accountability and bringing about transparency, it must understand that it must be acceptable and transparent. And it is being run with a lot of public funds. Check the salary of those people. And the rental they are paying.”“Their functions and mandates are outlined in the Constitution. So it’s not a capricious or whimsical schedule that they can construct. They have to have a work programme that is within their constitutional mandate. And the matters requested in the letter are matters that ought to find priority within their constitutional mandate. I can’t understand (them) having anything more important to do than investigations and make recommendations. That is the substance of their function,” Nandlall continued.The letter PPC Chairperson Carol Corbin sent to PPP Chief Whip Gail TeixeiraD’Urban Park and Sussex St ‘bond’This publication made contact with Opposition parliamentarian Juan Edghill, who confirmed that the Commission also responded in similar fashion to his request for probes into the D’Urban Park Project and the Sussex Street bond.In a letter to Procurement Commission Chairperson Corbin, Edghill identified aspects of the D’Urban Park Project the party is most concerned about. Edghill, a member of the Public Accounts Committee (PAC), noted that despite promises to the contrary, no account of donations received between September 2015 and January, 2016 was made public. It therefore queried the procurement process used for works on the project; as well as the scope a private company has to engage contractors and receive funding for a public project. The party queried the budgeted and actual cost throughout the project, as well as the final cost. In addition, the party demanded information on what payments were made to individuals and contractors up to June.In the case of the Sussex Street bond, Edghill also approached the PPC to call for an investigation into the contract inked between the Public Health Ministry and a known financier of the coalition Administration.Edghill had also indicated that the political Opposition was demanding “a definitive pronouncement specifically addressing if this award was done in a fair, equitable, transparent, competitive and cost-effective manner according to our procurement laws.”last_img read more

Dempsey ‘believes Liverpool will now move to sign him’

first_imgClint Dempsey thinks Liverpool will now finally table a firm bid for him, the Daily Mirror say.Anfield boss Brendan Rodgers is interested in signing Dempsey from Fulham, where the American has reportedly fallen out with manager Martin Jol.And it is claimed that Liverpool shelling out £15m to capture midfielder Joe Allen from Swansea has left Dempsey believing Rodgers will now look to complete a deal to sign him too.Liverpool’s Merseyside rivals Everton are considering making a move for Dempsey, the Daily Mail report.The Sun claim Arsenal are ahead of QPR and Fulham in a race to sign South Korean star Ki Sung-Yueng from Celtic.Once again it is suggested – this time by the Mail –  that QPR want to loan Joey Barton to a League club in order to run down his 12-match ban but the Football League will not sanction a deal. Meanwhile, the Mirror say Chelsea have entered fresh talks with Marseille in an attempt to push through the £6m signing of Spain full-back Cesar Azpilicueta before the new season starts.They will apparently turn to alternatives, including Juventus’ Switzerland right-back Stephan Lichtsteiner, if their pursuit of Azpilicueta does not work out.This page is regularly updated. Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Ready to Put Your Eyes in the Sky? Checkout the Autel EVO!

first_imgA Review of Instagram Marketing by Matthew Lucas The ReadWrite reviews team provides reviews on the latest and greatest technologies, services, and products.For all review inquiries please email tips@readwrite.com Related Posts Uber vs Lyft: Battling for Supremacy Blueair 680i Air Purifier: Clean Air For Your H…center_img Before reviewing the Autel, EVO camera drone, we had zero experience with drones of any type. This review, will give a novice’s perspective of experiencing the EVO drone, for the first time, right out of the box!Our first impression is noticing the superb packaging. Autel took some cues from Apple and has efficiently and carefully packaged the EVO in a container which is a delight to unpack and explore.Unboxing the droneImmediately apparent is the highly refined finish and excellent construction quality of the drone, controller and other parts. The EVO stands apart from other drones in that it boasts a glossy orange finish on its belly and back. This will make it easy to spot from below when in flight and when laying on the ground, partially hidden by green or brown vegetation, in the event of an emergency landing in a foreign location.Since we had zero familiarity with flying drones, we spent about an hour on Youtube watching drone enthusiasts flying and reviewing the EVO and other drones. Autel does provide some simple manuals and instructions in their nice box and you can also download a more thorough EVO manual from their online website.Getting setupAutel’s website provides some videos demonstrating the intelligent flight features of the EVO. Autel hasn’t spent a lot of time refining their website. Autel Robotics is fairly new to the drone business and apparently their priority is the drone rather than their website, which will probably improve over time and provide more information about the EVO.The main information that is lacking from their manual and website is how to get the video content off the micro SD card, mounted in the drone, downloaded to an Apple computer. We had to contact Autel through their website about how to get the video files off of the drone. Autel responded quickly that they are still working on the direct transferring procedures to Apple computers and suggested using a SD card reader to transfer the data.Learning to flySo, after charging up the drone and controller, looking over all the material supplied in the box, downloading the EVO manual, smartphone App and watching a few Youtube videos, we were ready for our maiden flight of the EVO.We placed the drone on the ground in the middle of a round cul-de-sac, checked that the LED warning lights were correct, front solid red and rear slow flashing green, and moved the 2 joysticks on the handheld controller to what we thought was the take off position. Apparently, we misread the instructions and moved the joy sticks to the bottom or left and right positions. The correct position is the down, left and right 45 degree, diagonal position. Once we got this right, the propellers quietly started spinning. This was an exciting moment in our maiden flight. We then pushed the auto take off button, the propellers sped up and the drone lifted quickly off the ground and hovered perfectly at about eye level. The prop noise is fairly quiet. Kind of sounds like a muffled swarm of hornets rather than a loud chain saw. We did not feel like we would disturb the surrounding neighbors at all.Advanced flight featuresThe AI algorithms kept the drone hovering in a stable position, giving us plenty of time to experiment and learn how to use the joy sticks to fly the EVO. From here it was very easy to fly the drone. Left stick for up, down and cw/ccw rotation and right stick for forward and back flight and left and right banked turns. We practiced flying around the neighborhood and moving the camera view up and down. When the power was getting low we hit the home button and the EVO responded quickly and returned and landed within a few feet of its initial take off spot.After recharging, we were ready for our second test flight where we wanted to test some of the automatic intelligent flight features. Taking off was easy, now that we knew the correct stick positions. We manually took off this time, by pushing up on the left joy stick and reached a safe altitude to try out the orbit or circle about a point and tracking flight modes. The EVO easily and precisely tracked our movement and flew a radius around a point with ease and with very smooth camera control.How does it compare?The consensus from a few online reviews is that the Autel EVO is very similar to the DJI Mavic 2 Pro with the exception of the orbit mode and camera quality. One reviewer felt the EVO had some trouble with holding a stable picture while in the orbit mode, but that the EVO had a better quality video image. We did not find the camera stability problem with the EVO in orbit mode. Perhaps there was less wind during our test or perhaps Autel has corrected the camera shift, while in circle mode, with a software update.The EVO controller allows flight control with and without an attached smartphone. Apparently the EVO is, currently, the only controller with an OLED screen that can work without an attached phone. The EVO can be flown and transmit video to the controller, but the intelligent flight modes and some other status reports are not available when used without a smartphone attached. Autel does not provide a micro SD card reader or a mini-usb to usb-3 cable to connect the controller to an Apple iPhone. These items have to be purchased separately.We purchased a Unitek, USB3.0 Type-C Multi-in-One Card Reader from Amazon for about $15.00. The reader easily read the micro SD card and we downloaded our files to a MacBook Pro and imported them into iMovie. As expected, the video is superb, since it is 4K and 60 fps. The video was very smooth during the tracking modes we experimented with. We were not able to compare the video from the EVO with video from other drones, but must say that the video quality from the EVO camera is excellent.Final thoughtsIn conclusion, we found the Autel EVO drone very easy to set up and fly, for an absolute drone novice, after a short time reviewing the instructions provided in the box and online. The EVO maintains level and stable flight and automatically avoids flying into objects, while patiently waiting for flight commands from the pilot through the controller. The EVO can be flown manually or with intelligent flight modes like Orbit, Dynamic Track, Viewpoint and others. The 4K camera takes excellent images, both video and still.If you are looking for an easy to fly drone with all the expected features, and a few more, that takes excellent video, you won’t be disappointed with Autel’s EVO drone.Special thanks to Wellbots for sending us the Autel EVO to fly!

iPad Pro 129 LTE 599 Update Sold out

first_img Motorola Moto phone saleMotorola’s Moto phones offer prodigious bang for the buck. Today: same bang, fewer bucks. A whole bunch of Moto phones are on sale, everything from the entry-level E4 Plus ($129.99) to the newer Moto G6 32GB ($159.99, even though the main promo page shows $199.99). See them at MotorolaThe Moto line has “Cheapskate approved” written all over it. Broadly speaking, you get a great set of features in phones that come unlocked and carrier-agnostic: They’re compatible with both CDMA and GSM networks, meaning you can use them with pretty much any US carrier.One thing, though: Many of Motorola’s sale prices are mere matches for the everyday prices offered on Amazon, though some of those prices are for Prime subscribers only. But there are a few better deals, like the Moto Z2 Play for $200.

(Your chances of winning something: excellent.) Come on out! Bring a friend!As a longtime iPad fan, I’ve definitely experienced a little lust for the iPad Pro 12.9 — you know, the big one. But $999? No way, no how. And that was for the Wi-Fi-only model.Check this: For a limited time, and while supplies last, B&H has the Apple iPad Pro 12.9 with Wi-Fi and LTE (64GB) in gold for $599 shipped, which I believe ranks as one of the best deals ever on this particular configuration.See it at B&HThis is the 2017 model, so it still has a home button and still relies on Touch ID rather than Face ID. Surprisingly, it’s new, not refurbished, which is usually the only way you’d see a price this low.And speaking of that, Apple proper sells the refurbished iPad Pro 12.9 for $589 — but it’s the Wi-Fi-only version. A mere $10 more buys you retail packaging and the LTE option. (That said, Apple’s refurbs are pretty much good as new, right down to the new battery and one-year warranty.)See it at AppleAt this size, and paired with a Bluetooth keyboard, the iPad Pro could potentially take the place of a laptop. And the LTE option is something few laptops have, a boon if you often find yourself “in the field.”I’m not sure how long these will last at this price, so if you think you might be interested, act fast. As we learned yesterday, the best deals often disappear in a hurry.Read more: Apple iPad Pro 12.9 review iPad Pro 2017 review: ProMotion for me!
