He later apologized and said he had acted like a “diva” and a “jerk.” Also on Thursday, Durant said he was the first pick in the NBA All-Star draft conducted by team captains Curry and LeBron James.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folk“Life could be much worse. It was definitely a fun day,” Durant said. “I was looking forward to seeing who was going to be on the All-Star teams, looking forward to my fine and most of all looking forward to playing tonight.”Durant went 6 of 9 on 3-pointers and continually pushed the ball down the court to create open shots for Curry and Thompson. Durant hit two 3s and Curry added a third in a 67-second span late in the third quarter, during which the Warriors (39-10) went 8 of 11 on 3-pointers, leading Minnesota coach Tom Thibodeau to throw up his arms in frustration. Timberwolves: Thibodeau said before the game that Butler, an All-Star reserve, is “close” to returning, Minnesota is 2-2 in the four games Butler has missed.Warriors: Curry became the fifth player in Warriors history to score 14,000 points, ending the game with 14,023. Curry, who is in his ninth season, trails Wilt Chamberlain (17,783), Rick Barry (16,447), Paul Arizin (16,266) and Chris Mullin (16,235) on the franchise list.GRAND TIMESZaza Pachulia played in his 1,000th regular-season game, becoming the third Warriors player to reach that mark this season, joining David West and Andre Iguodala. It was game No. 109 for Pachulia in a Warriors jersey. Most of his games, 556, were played with the Atlanta Hawks.BAD MATCHUPTowns was unstoppable near the basket at times and the Timberwolves had a 60-44 advantage on points in the paint. But that didn’t matter against the Warriors’ outside marksmanship. “You can’t beat the Warriors if you’re playing 2 versus 3. You can’t trade 2s for 3s,” Towns said. “We did a great job fighting all night, but it seemed like we got so close, they just started raining 3s again. No matter, uncontested, contested, it didn’t matter. They hit them when they needed to hit them. That’s the sign of a championship team right there.”UP NEXTTimberwolves: Host Brooklyn on Saturday, seeking a 10th straight home win.Warriors: Host the Boston Celtics on Saturday.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ’a duplicitous move’ – Lacson View comments Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Jiro Manio arrested for stabbing man in Marikina MOST READ Minnesota’s Jamal Crawford said Durant has become a better passer, making him even more of an offensive threat.“He’s even more dangerous. He’s already the best scorer in the world,” Crawford said. “If he has the assists, that just makes it tough to deal with.”The Warriors matched their previous season high of 18 3-pointers by the end of the third quarter. They made 57 percent from behind the arc in the game, with Thompson hitting seven and Curry connecting on five. That pinpoint shooting allowed Warriors coach Steve Kerr to forgive his team for 15 turnovers and inconsistent defense.“Our guys are so talented they lit up the scoreboard. They can win a lot of games without being totally dialed in and defending at a high level and that’s what happened tonight,” Kerr said. “It wasn’t our best effort, but talent wins.”Karl-Anthony Towns led Minnesota with 31 points and 11 rebounds. Crawford added 21 points and Jeff Teague had 17 points and seven assists for Minnesota, which played its fourth straight game without Jimmy Butler, who has a sore right knee.TIP-INSADVERTISEMENT Michael Porter Jr. stays patient as playing time increases Kevin Durant out with Achilles injury; to undergo MRI on Tuesday PLAY LIST 03:12Kevin Durant out with Achilles injury; to undergo MRI on Tuesday02:43Philippines make clean sweep in Men’s and Women’s 3×3 Basketball06:27SEA Games 2019: No surprises as Gilas Pilipinas cruises to basketball gold02:14Carpio 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 Almazan vows to comeback stronger after finals heartbreak LATEST STORIES OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ’a duplicitous move’ – Lacson Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

Submission of Recast Budget Delayed

first_imgHouse Chairman on Ways, Means and Financen Rep. Thomas Fallah, announced the postponement of budget hearings to Monday, the 21st of May.As possible budget shortfall loomsThe recast of the 2017/2018 budget to perhaps tackle quick-impact development and empowerment in the pro-poor policy of the CDC-led government, is gradually elapsing with the delay of its submission which should have been since Thursday, February 15, 2018. The 2017/2018 fiscal period would finally end on June 30, 2018The House’s Chairman on Ways, Means, Finance and Development Planning, Thomas P. Fallah, said the Recast Budget is yet to be received by the House of Representatives and the continued delay would entangle it with the 2018/2019 budget, whose submission is scheduled for the 30th of April, according to the Public Financial Management Law.Speaking recently during the three-day Orientation retreat of members of the House of Representatives in Margibi County, Rep. Fallah urged the Ministry of Finance and Development Planning to act accordingly.“The recast budget should have been submitted since the 15th of February, but now it has been delayed for eight days (Thursday),” Rep. Fallah said. “If the recast budget continues to be rescheduled, I am afraid that the submission of the 2018/2019 Budget would be a problem.”Although reasons for the delay have not been sufficiently explained, it is being speculated that another shortfall in the budget is expected to be announced.It can be recalled recently that the head of the the Liberia Revenue Authority (LRA) had expressed fears of a budgetary shortfall in view of the National Legislature’s decision to put a halt to the National Road fund tax scheme which had been projected to raise a total of US$11 million to support the national budget.The Government of Liberia had proposed a US$0.25 tax imposition on petroleum imports to be allocated to a road tax fund intended to support the maintenance of the country’s road network. However, the Legislature was of the view that the proposed tax was leading to increased hardships on ordinary Liberians and therefore recommended its immediate suspension.Since the suspension of the tax scheme, the GOL has faced difficulty in meeting its revenue projections.Also, according to the head of the LRA, Elfrieda Stewart Tamba, the forestry sector posed another risk to the budget because of existing and pending MOUs between GOL and actors in this sector waiving taxes deemed payable to Government.Commissioner Tamba had also disclosed that a US$6.1 million waiver on rice imports, considered an essential commodity, has also had a dampening effect on revenue collection. She added that while GOL had a heavy reliance on revenue derived from taxes on imports, she observed that only 35 percent of total imports were commercial as compared to non-commercial, which accounted for 65 percent of total imports.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
