TUCP petitions for P320 basic pay increase in Metro Manila

One of the country's largest labor centers on Thursday demanded a P320 across-the-board increase in the daily minimum wage for all private sector workers in Metro Manila.   The Trade Union Congress of the Philippines (TUCP) said the current basic pay of P512 was not enough for a Metro Manila household with at least five members to live decently.   If approved, the petition that the TUCP filed in the Regional Tripartite Wages and Productivity Board would bring the minimum wage in the National Capital Region to P832.   This will "help restore the purchasing power of their wages, to cover the further increases in prices of basic goods and services, and to co...Keep on reading: TUCP petitions for P320 basic pay increase in Metro Manila.....»»

Azkals announce Terry Butcher as new head coach

The Philippine Men's National Football team has announced the appointment of former English skipper Terry Butcher as the Azkals' new head coach. The coaching change comes just months after the Azkals achieved arguably their biggest victory, qualifying for the 2019 AFC Asian Cup with a win over Tajikistan at the Rizal Memorial Football Stadium in Manila. Butcher will be replacing Thomas Dooley, who served as the Azkals' mentor from 2014 to 2018. An experienced manager and former player with a long and storied career, Butcher represented the English national team from 1980 to 1990, which included 77 caps and three World Cup appearances. In 1990, Butcher began his managing career, which lasted until 2015, last handling Newport County AFC. More new names will be joining Butcher on the Azkals coaching staff, as former player Chris Greatwich will be coming on board as a coaching assistant, while Steve Marcells was named as the goalkeeping coach. Ireland's Scott Cooper will also be joining the Azkals as the team's Senior Football Adviser. Cooper is coming off a stint as Thai club Police Tero's manager. The changes come in time for the Azkals' preparations for the upcoming AFF Suzuki Cup later this year, and the AFC Asian Cup in January of 2019......»»

North American trio beats Morocco to host 2026 World Cup

MOSCOW --- North America will host the 2026 World Cup after FIFA voters overwhelmingly opted for the financial and logistical certainty of a United States-led bid over a risky Moroccan proposal for the first 48-team tournament. The soccer showpiece will return to the U.S. for the first time since 1994 after gaining 134 votes, while Morocco got 65 at the FIFA Congress in Moscow on Wednesday. The vote by football federations was public, in contrast to secrecy surrounding the ballot by FIFA's elected board members for the 2018 and 2022 hosts, Russia and Qatar, in 2010. The U.S. proposed staging 60 out of the 80 games in 2026, when 16 teams will be added to the finals, leaving Canada an...Keep on reading: North American trio beats Morocco to host 2026 World Cup.....»»

Warriors made 'tongue-in-cheek' offer for Kobe to un-retire

Kobe Bryant disclosed that Golden State Warriors general manager Bob Myers told him that there was a spot for The Black Mamba in The Bay if ever he considered un-retiring. Bryant made the revelation on The HoopsHype Podcast with Alex Kennedy, but said that the offer was "tongue-in-cheek" because of his long relationship with Myers. Kennedy had asked him if any teams had tried to lure him out of retirement, ala the 07-08 Boston Celtics making an offer to Reggie Miller, to which Bryant said: "I've known Bob Myers, the general manager of the Warriors, forever. Like, I remember the day he was going to go take his bar exam! We used to hang out together all the time. At my last All-Star Game, we had a chance to catch up. We were staying in the same hotel and I had a chance to tell him congratulations on everything. Then, he said, 'Hey listen, if there’s any chance you want to change your mind and come back and play another year, you can always come over here [to Golden State].' But it’s all tongue-in-cheek, man." Prior to being hired by the Warriors, Myers had worked as a sports agent with multiple NBA clients. Bryant retired following the 2015-16 NBA season, finishing with career averages of 25.0 points, 5.2 rebounds, 4.7 assists, and 1.4 steals. The thought of Bryant coming off the bench for the ball movement-heavy Warriors may be a little odd, but Warriors mentor Steve Kerr's offense has elements of the triangle offense that the Lakers used to run under Coach Phil Jackson.  .....»»
