‘Maybe worse,’ says Guiao as Gilas looks forward to Serbia match

first_imgFOSHAN, China—Rather than sulk after a man-sized beating taken just two nights ago, Yeng Guiao and his Gilas Pilipinas crew want to grab the bull by the horns going forward—no matter how bleak the future looks—in their Fiba World Cup campaign.“We look forward to playing Serbia,” Guiao said on the eve of their clash with the fourth-ranked team in the world led by the talented Nikola Jokic. “We tried to be positive, be of encouragement to each other. We cannot allow ourselves to be defined by just one bad game.”ADVERTISEMENT No need to wear face masks in Metro Manila, says scientist “Maybe worse,” he added.Guiao hopes it is the game against Serbia, not Italy, that will define the Filipinos’ campaign here—win or lose.“The consolation for us Filipino basketball fans is to just see our team fight and compete,” Guiao said, knowing going out wouldn’t be that bad as long as the team battles.“If we’re going to lose, we just have to play decent basketball,” Guiao said. “We just have to keep fighting it out.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Nieto says Blue Eagles chasing after UAAP ‘greatest ever’ label That game, a 108-62 loss at the hands of Italy in the inaugurals on Saturday, was so bad that this intrepid batch of Filipinos looked like they didn’t belong playing in such a grandiose stage.“There’s still games left, we need to pick up the pieces and put everything together to play a better game against Serbia,” Guiao went on.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSAndray Blatche has high praise for teammate Kai SottoSPORTSBig differenceSPORTSAlmazan status stays uncertain ahead of Game 4Ever since returning to this tournament five years ago in Seville, Spain, the Filipinos were never manhandled the way they were by the Italians.That 46-point blowout put a serious dent on the Filipinos’ chances of marching on, with the Serbs, whom they tangle with at 7:30 p.m. at Foshan International Sports and Cultural Arena here Monday, listed as the team most likely to unseat the United States and deny the Americans an unprecedented third straight title.

The level of game [of Italy] was very high, and if you can’t keep up with that, you’re going to lag—especially against Serbia, that’s going to be the case.”Serbia destroyed Angola also by 46 points in the very first game Saturday, even with Jokic seemingly taking it easy and reserving his best for the bigger games ahead.Guiao feels Serbia will flaunt a similar game as Italy—only better. The Serbians shot 69 percent from three-point land against Angola.“That’s a big worry,” he said of Serbia’s three-point shooting. “Their bigs also have the ability to shoot from anywhere on the floor. We had that problem with Italy, so that’s basically the same problem we’ll have against Serbia.ADVERTISEMENT Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

Suspect in ’05 slaying turns up in Indonesia

first_imgA fugitive suspected of killing his wife and burying her in their Rowland Heights back yard has been found in Indonesia, authorities said Tuesday. David Lam has been on the run since 2005. Sheriff’s Homicide Detective Ty Labbe said Lam was being brought back to the United States on Tuesday night on a FBI warrant for fleeing to avoid prosecution. “We’re waiting for him to come,” Labbe said. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREStriving toward a more perfect me: Doug McIntyre Lam also has a warrant for murder in Los Angeles County stemming from the September 2005 killing of his wife, Susan. FBI Special Agent Scott Garriola said he found out Friday night that Indonesian police arrested Lam in Batam island. He didn’t know details of how long Lam had been living there and what he was doing when captured. Susan Lam had been missing for two weeks before deputies found what looked like two graves in the 2600 block of Doubletree Lane on Sept. 22, 2005. Her remains were unearthed the next day. Coroner’s officials said she had been strangled. Her relatives, who last talked to the 49-year-old woman on Sept. 11, 2005, had reported her missing. David Lam took a leave from his job at the Bicycle Casino in Bell Gardens within days of his wife being reported missing. Investigators don’t know yet the motive behind the slaying. However, FBI officials said David Lam is believed to have a gambling problem. The couple filed for bankruptcy June 10, 2002, according to public records. In 2005, detectives said he was last seen leaving Singapore on a ferry to Indonesia. Batam island, where Lam turned up, is part of the Riau Archipelago and is about 12.5 miles away from Singapore. ruby.gonzales@sgvn.com (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3026160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Google Widens Search Lead, Prepares to Make Search Even Faster

first_imgsarah perez Tags:#Google#web A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketcenter_img In March search giant Google grew yet again, taking the top position in U.S. searches with 63.7 percent of the search share. But this time, Google didn’t steal market share from all its competitors – it only stole from Yahoo, Ask.com, and AOL. Microsoft’s share actually grew last month. Of course, they didn’t grow by that much, but when you’re fighting Google, every step counts. Meanwhile, Google continues to experiment with search technology in an effort to make searches faster because they know faster searches means more of them.Google: Still Growing & GrowingAccording to new data from comScore, Google dominated the search market once again with a 63.7 percent share of the 14.3 billion U.S. searches in March, an increase of 0.4 percentage points over February. The number of searches increased as well – that 14.3 billion represents an increase of 9 percent from last month. Usually, when Google gains, it’s at others’ expense. This past month, that was still the case, with one exception. Yahoo lost 0.1 percentage point to fall to 20.5 percent and Ask.com and AOL lost 0.3 and 0.2 percentage points respectively, making their minuscule market share that much smaller (Ask: 3.8%, AOL: 3.7%). The one surprise from the data is that Microsoft’s search actually grew last month. They gained 0.1 percent in March, growing to 8.3 percent. In fact, they could even be called “the fastest growing” search property as searches on their sites grew 11 percent in March compared with Google’s ten percent and Yahoo’s 9 percent. Google to Speed Up SearchEarlier this week on the Google Analytics blog, Brett Crosby explained Google would be making a small tweak as to how the referrer code is passed to a web site from Google after someone clicks a link in their search results. Alex Chitu, a Google watcher who runs the unofficial Google Operating System blog, figured out what this was all about. It related to a search experiment Google was running back in February that displayed an alternative Google interface that was coded completely in AJAX. Chitu believed the change in the referrer code was necessary to fix an unintended consequence of the experiment – it had essentially shut off referrer traffic. Yesterday, Google spokesman Eitan Bencuya confirmed this was true, saying “we made this change so we can continue experimenting with different kinds of test results and not break links in the future.”Although a change to AJAX technology would only make searches milliseconds faster, those milliseconds add up, allowing people to do more searches, faster. And that would let Google grow even more, eating up percentage points along the way. Related Posts Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic…last_img read more
