LATEST STORIES — Randolph B. Leongson (@RLeongsonINQ) March 18, 2018Despite the loss of Alas, the Road Warriors still kept themselves in the game until the Hotshots went on a telling 16-4 blast to open the fourth quarter for a 75-62 advantage with seven minutes remaining before extending the lead to as high as 18, 84-66.“It is what it is. Breaks of the game wasn’t going on our side. I would summarize it all in that four-to-five minute stretch where we couldn’t buy baskets,” rued Ravena, who finished the game with 21 points and five assists to lead NLEX.“Corner threes from Larry (Fonacier) and Alex (Mallari), a layup from Cyrus (Baguio), everyone was missing the shots they normally make. Credit to the defense of Magnolia as well, maybe we’re lower to them percentage-wise offensively. But defensively, we were there. Again, breaks of the game.“ADVERTISEMENT With the loss, the Road Warriors now have their backs against the wall heading into Game 6 on Tuesday.But rather than mope, Ravena said the team should heed coach Yeng Guiao’s reminders and “take this loss in stride.”“We’ll learn from it, and probably, we’ll see how it goes in the next game,” he said.Ravena is also hopeful that Alas’ injury is nothing serious as NLEX needs all hands on deck.“We’re praying for [Kevin]. He’s an integral part of this system and an integral part of this franchise. We wish him the best and hopefully, he can play next game,” he said.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparc Read Next Conor McGregor seeks to emerge from controversy in UFC comeback In Liverpool, Man United sees the pain and path to recovery Scarlett Johansson, Sterling K.

For months, two men drove around the San Fernando Valley, scoping out banks and recycling centers for people walking out with cash. As they hit more than a half-dozen victims, frustrated LAPD detectives could do little more than compile unreliable witness statements and hope for the best. But last month, they turned to COPLINK, a new $1.3 million database that links Southern California law enforcement agencies. That system gave detectives the information they needed to identify the suspects, who were arrested as one of them roughed up a 63-year-old woman walking with a cane outside a Roscoe Boulevard bank. “Information has become the lifeline of policing,” LAPD Chief William Bratton told reporters Thursday during his monthly media briefing. “This new system is going to allow us to one, input information, and for all of us to access the shared information.” COPLINK has been quietly rolled out over the last few months, and will soon be in all Los Angeles Police Department patrol cars. It pulls together clues from arrest reports, jails, citations and crime records and makes them all available with just a few key strokes. Investigators can tap into databases from Los Angeles to San Diego and across the country and gather information, from a suspect’s description to license plate information to other agencies’ crime reports, jail information and other surveillance. The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department already uses the crime-analysis technology developed by Knowledge Computing Corp., in Tucson, Ariz. In the case of the suspected serial Valley robbers, investigators tracked them through three letters from one of their license plates – TNV – and a report from the Sheriff’s Department. “We gave (investigators) three letters of the license plate and by the end of the day they had called back,” said John Dunlop, a detective at the LAPD’s Van Nuys Division. A system query for the license plate pulled up a series of suspects and possible leads, including the name of the owner of the personalized plate “TNV.” The car, along with the plate, fit a similar description of a robbery in Palmdale. The new leads sent undercover investigators after Ricky Marshall, 20, of Los Angeles, who they began to trail. Shortly after they began to follow him, Marshall picked up Angelo Newsome, 23, of Pacoima. Over the next few hours, they drove around the Valley casing banks, police said. When they spotted the woman with a cane leaving a Bank of America in the 20200 block of Roscoe, they made their move. Marshall dropped off Newsome in front of the bank as investigators watched. Newsome then grabbed the woman from behind, lifting her off her feet, and threw her to the ground, police said. She struggled as blood trickled from her temple. But Newsome finally snatched the bag filled with checks and a $100 bill before he took off running. Undercover police and bystanders went after him, and he and Marshall were arrested. Newsome is charged with three counts of robbery, two counts of assault with a firearm and possession of rock cocaine. Marshall is charged with one count of robbery. Both have pleaded not guilty. firstname.lastname@example.org (818) 713-3741160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

TOKYO – Hoping to encourage more games for the PlayStation 3, Sony has cut in half the price of a software development kit for the struggling console. Sony Corp.’s gaming unit, Sony Computer Entertainment Inc., said prices for the development package for the PlayStation 3 will be reduced to $10,250 in North America, 950,000 yen ($8,600) in Japan and 7,500 euros ($11,250) in Europe. Monday’s move follows last month’s price cuts on the PS3 around the world, and Sony has said that sales have improved in the U.S., Japan and Europe. The 80-gigabyte version PS3 now sells for about $499, down from $599. Although its predecessor, the PlayStation 2, dominated the gaming market, the PS3 has struggled against the Nintendo Co.’s Wii console. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREStriving toward a more perfect me: Doug McIntyre Boosting PS3 sales is crucial for Sony’s overall business strategy because it also supports the Blu-ray disc next-generation video, which is vying with the rival HD-DVD format. The Wii has succeeded in drawing people not usually accustomed to playing electronic games, by offering easier-to-play games that use a wandlike handheld device for the remote controller. There have been no price cuts on the Wii, which sells for about $249.99 in North America, 249 euros ($370) in Europe and 25,000 yen ($230) in Japan. It is generally more difficult and expensive to create games for sophisticated machines like the PS3, which is packed with cutting-edge technology and is driven by the Cell microprocessor. But machines won’t sell unless there is a variety of games that can be played on them. Game developers that had previously designed products for the PlayStation 2 are now increasingly making Wii versions of the games.

Some of the Mary’s Meals walkers are pictured attending the ‘Step by Step to Feed the Next Child’ Sponsored Walk Meeting in the Conference Room in St Eunan’s Cathedral on Tuesday night.They are looking forward to the start of the Walk which will begin in Malin on Thursday 7th August at 8.30am and finish in Knock on Friday 15th August at 11:00am. The Sponsored Walk over 9 days will help raise awareness of the work of Mary’s Meals and also some funds to help feed the next child waiting on Mary’s Meals.Mary’s Meals is an international movement that sets up school feeding projects in communities where poverty and hunger prevent children from gaining an education. Mary’s Meals is a simple idea that works – by providing a daily meal in a place of education, chronically poor children are attracted to the classroom where they can gain a basic education that provides an escape route from poverty. Over 800,000 children receive Mary’s Meals every school day. The average cost to feed a child for a whole school year is €14.50.
