Adult care facility with mostly Filipino workers fined $7M for wage theft

LOS ANGELES -- The owner of six adult care facilities operating in the San Fernando Valley's quiet West Hills neighborhood has been slapped with citations of over $7 million for wage theft and other law violations. This makes it the largest wage citation in Southern California in the last three years. Adat Shalom Board and Care, Inc. has been ordered by the California Labor Commissioner's Office to pay 149 of its former and current employers --- a majority of whom are Filipino --- for underpaid wages and penalties. The caregivers cared for elderly residents 24 hours a day, six days a week, receiving pay of less than $3 an hour, according to the complaint.

‘Largest pot in history of Philippine golf’ up for grabs at 100th Solaire Philippine Open

Some of the Philippines and the world’s top golfers are set to converge in Sta. Rosa, Laguna for the 100th edition of the Philippine Open golf tournament, sponsored by Solaire Resort and Casino. The four-day tournament, which kicks off on February 28th at The Country Club in Sta. Rosa, will be the centennial edition of the Philippines’ top golf championship. “This is the fourth time that Solaire is sponsoring the Philippine Open, the country’s premier championship, and Asia’s oldest national open,” said Solaire Resort and Casino President and COO Thomas Arasi at the Solaire Philippine Open press conference held Tuesday morning. “But this sponsorship will be a special one since as the Open will be holding it’s 100th tournament.” As historic as the upcoming tournament will be, it will be even more enticing for the competitors, as the 2018 Philippine Open will feature over half a million US dollars in prize money. “This year’s total prize money for the Solaire Open is at $600,000 USD,” Pilipinas Golf Tournaments, Inc. General Manager Colo Ventosa revealed at Tuesday’s presser. “This is the largest pot in the history of Philippine Golf, the Philippine Open, and we expect to lure at least 132 players, from abroad and locally as well.” Among those 132 competitors will include a handful of former champions, including the Philippines’ own Miguel Tabuena, who won the tournament back in 2015. “Our defending champion from 2017, Steve Lewton will be here to defend his title. We also have another past winner, Mardan Mamat from Singapore, he was the winner in 2012. We have Marcus Both from Australia, 2014 winner, of course we have Miguel Tabuena as well, and we also invited Miguel Angel Jimenez.” Ventosa added. Decorated Pinoy bet Tony Lascuna will be gunning for this year’s crown after England’s Steve Lewton won it all in 2017. “Masakit sa aming mga Pinoy kung iba yung nananalo kasi yun yung malaking tournament sa Pilipinas.” Lascuna told ABS-CBN Sports. “Ngayon, may Philippine Tour, malaki yung tulong, tinutulungan every year na mag-improve lahat ng Pilipino. Ngayon, may chance kami.”.....»»

Raptors’ Kyle Lowry makes $1 million donation to Villanova

PHILADELPHIA --- When Villanova officials first contacted Toronto Raptors guard Kyle Lowry about making a $1 million donation to his alma mater, he was skeptical. "A million dollars?" Lowry recalled saying. When he found out the money would be used for upgrades to the Pavillion, the facility where he spends the offseason working out, he quickly came around. "If I wasn't there every day, if I wasn't around the players and using the facilities as much as I do, it would be a little different," Lowry said. "But this place I call home. I'm literally here all summer, so it was easy." The school announced the largest donation by a former Villanova basketball player on Monday, a ...Keep on reading: Raptors’ Kyle Lowry makes $1 million donation to Villanova.....»»

Josh Donaldson agrees to $23M, 1-year deal with Blue Jays

TORONTO (AP) — Third baseman Josh Donaldson and the Toronto Blue Jays agreed to a $23 million contract, the largest one-year deal for an arbitration-eligible player. The 32-year-old, a three-time All-Star, topped the $21,625,000, one-year deal covering 2018 agreed to last May by outfielder Bryce Harper and Washington. Donaldson, the 2015 AL MVP, got a $6 million raise after rebounding from an injury-slowed 2016 to hit .270 last season with 33 homers and 78 RBIs in 113 games. The sure-handed infielder missed time from April 14 through May 25 with a calf injury, which also hampered him during spring training. Donaldson was coming off a $28.65 million, two-year deal. He is eligible for free agency after this season. Toronto also agreed Friday to one-year deals with outfielder Ezequiel Carrera ($1.9 million) and left-hander Aaron Loup ($1,812,500). Carrera earned $1,162,500 last season, when the 30-year-old Venezuelan played every outfield spot and batted .282 with eight homers and 20 RBIs in a career-high 131 games for the Blue Jays — 91 of those in left field. Toronto's other arbitration eligible players are right-handers Dominic Leone, Roberto Osuna, Aaron Sanchez and Marcus Stroman, outfielder Kevin Pillar and second baseman Devon Travis......»»

Patriots chase 7th straight AFC title berth against Titans

By Kyle Hightower, Associated Press FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Two things, among many, have been consistent for the Patriots the past decade: Tom Brady at quarterback and New England in the AFC championship game. Brady will try to lead his team to its seventh straight conference title game Saturday when it hosts the Tennessee Titans in the divisional round. It has been a challenging week off the field for the Patriots following reports of turmoil involving Brady, coach Bill Belichick and team owner Robert Kraft. But Brady says he's never doubted his team's ability to compartmentalize potential distractions. "I think we have a job to do and we know what our job is and that's to go out and play football at a high level and play well," he said. "Nothing really should get in the way of that." Tennessee hasn't been to a conference championship game since the 2002 season, but has been invigorated coming off its first playoff win in 14 years. The Titans enter as 13-point underdog, but linebacker Derrick Morgan said it's a role they happily embrace. "Nobody respects us. Nobody really expects a lot from us. That's fine," he said. "We haven't been a very successful team in the last 10 years. So it's easy for people to overlook us. So we've got to take care of business and start winning games like this to get the respect that we desire." To get it, they'll have to stop a quarterback that has been nearly unbeatable in this round of the postseason. Brady is 11-2 in 13 divisional-round games since 2002 , passing for 3,700 yards and 28 touchdowns. He also has a 6-1 career record against the Titans with 13 touchdowns and just one interception. Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota was mostly unflappable in leading his team back from an 18-point halftime deficit to beat Kansas City — the largest comeback on road in Super Bowl era. But since 2001, quarterbacks making their first or second career playoff start are 0-7 against New England. "When it comes down to it, it's all about us," Mariota said. "I think that's kind of been the mindset through this entire season. Ups and downs come and go, you just want to try and make the most of this opportunity." Some things to watch on Saturday: MOVING ON UP: It will be Bill Belichick's 37th career playoff game as a head coach, breaking a tie with Tom Landry and Don Shula for the most in NFL history. HEISMAN BROTHERS: Mariota, the 2014 Heisman winner, and Derrick Henry, the 2015 Heisman winner, combined to turn in the best rushing performance in franchise history in the wild-card round. Henry ran for a career-high 156 yards, and Mariota added 46 yards. Henry will be starting his third straight game with DeMarco Murray already out (right knee). PRESSURE: The Titans ranked fifth in the league with 43 sacks during the season and added four more against the Chiefs last week. Three-time Pro Bowl defensive lineman Jurrell Casey had six from his interior spot, while Morgan led the Titans with 7 ½ sacks. Linebackers Brian Orakpo (seven) and Wesley Woodyard (five) give the Titans a variety of options to attack Brady, not counting backup linebacker Erik Walden (four). EXPERIENCE GAP: New England has 41 players with postseason experience, most of 2017 playoff teams. Fourteen Patriots players have played at least 10 playoff games. That's more such players than 11 other playoff teams combined (13). Before the start of this postseason, the Titans had 18 players who had appeared in a playoff game. BELICHICK AND LEBEAU: There aren't too many current NFL coaches that have been around the game longer than Belichick and Titans defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau . LeBeau has an NFL-record 45 consecutive seasons as a coach, with Belichick at 43. Yet, with Belichick as head coach, he and LeBeau have faced off in the playoffs only once: the 2004 AFC championship game that New England won in Pittsburgh 41-27. The respect between the two is mutual. "Not very many coaches have the record coach Belichick's gotten. In fact he's probably closing in on the best ever," LeBeau said. Said Belichick: "Coach LeBeau is as good as there is, as good a defensive coach as there is." ___ AP Football Writer Teresa Walker in Nashville contributed to this report......»»
