Plane explosion in Philippines kills eight, including two foreigners

first_imgVideo footage showed a huge plume of smoke rising into the night sky as fire crews doused the fuselage with foam.The twin-jet West Wind 24 plane was carrying three medical personnel, three flight crew, a patient and a companion, Richard Gordon, a senator and head of the Philippine Red Cross, said on Twitter.”Unfortunately, no passenger survived the accident,” the Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) said in a statement.An investigation by the Civil Aeronautics Authority of the Philippines was under way, MIAA said. A medical evacuation plane exploded during takeoff in the Philippine capital on Sunday, killing all eight passengers and crew, including an American and a Canadian, officials said.The plane, owned by a Philippines-registered charter service Lionair, had been bound for Haneda, Japan, but burst into flames at the end of the runway around 8 p.m. (1200 GMT), Manila’s main airport said.Indonesian carrier Lion Air issued a statement making clear that it is unrelated to Manila-based Lionair. The runway has been closed temporarily, affecting an arriving Korean Air flight that was diverted to Clark airport in northern Philippines, said MIAA General Manager Eddie Monreal.The aim is to reopen the runway about two hours after midnight, he said in a press briefing.Monreal confirmed that an American national and a Canadian citizen were among those killed, but could not provide further detail. The six others were all Filipinos, he said.center_img Topics :last_img read more

Badgers fall behind early; drop 5th straight game

first_imgMEGAN CONLIN/Herald PhotoThe Badger women’s basketball team continued its struggles as it lost a close contest, 68-59, to the Iowa Hawkeyes at the Kohl Center Thursday night.The Badgers have now lost 12 of their last 14 after beginning the year 4-0. Wisconsin had its chances in this game that saw Iowa push the lead to 11 early in the second half, only to have the Badgers battle their way back into it.After a Jolene Anderson jumper cut the lead to four with 3:22 left in the game, the Badgers had four consecutive trips down the floor end unsuccessfully. Iowa then hit a couple of free throws, and Wisconsin never got closer than six.The Badgers were unable to take advantage of the Hawkeyes’ lackluster offensive performance in the second half, where Iowa made more points off of free throws than from the field.”I give credit to Wisconsin because we were very stagnant with our offense tonight. That was probably the worst that our offense has really executed during the course of this year,” Iowa head coach Lisa Bluder said. “We didn’t have movement, we weren’t making good passes — it’s evident. Nine assists. For us, that’s very low in the assist column. Our offense relies on good passing and they took a lot of that away from us tonight.”As much as Iowa was able to take advantage of the free-throw line, it proved to be the Badgers’ downfall. Wisconsin was only able to convert 4-of-14 attempts on the night, including just 2-of-11 in the second half.Jolene Anderson led the Badgers with 20 points but could not connect on a couple of late free throws.”You just have to think that your legs aren’t tired and you can’t let it bother you. It goes along with the mental thing that coach Stone says, you know, just go out there and play,” Anderson said.Wisconsin was able to hold Crystal Smith, the Big Ten’s leading scorer, in check for most of the game. She was held to just 3-of-7 shooting on the night and did not even attempt a shot from the field in the second half. But the senior was able to knock in all eight of her shots from the charity stripe.Iowa was led by 6-foot-6 freshman Megan Skouby, who had 23 points and six rebounds. The Badgers switched up their defense early on to a zone to try to limit the touches of the taller Skouby, after she had eight points in just more than five minutes.The UW starting forwards — senior Kjersten Bakke and freshman Caitlin Gibson — did not seem to have an answer for Iowa’s frontcourt, as they were outscored by the duo of Skouby and forward Tiffany Reedy 48-9. Reedy’s 15 was a season high for the senior.”I am not usually a penetrator, and tonight that is pretty much all I did,” Reedy said. “I just stayed focus and I knew this game was important, so my mindset was just doing whatever it took to win.”The first half saw the Badgers outplay the Hawkeyes in nearly every way but turnovers.”The story of the game was points off turnovers in the first half,” said UW head coach Lisa Stone. “We had 14 turnovers in the first half. It looked as if we had not seen the press, but that’s all we’ve worked on the last three years I’ve been here. We certainly need to improve in those areas.”Wisconsin gets a short break from conference action as it looks to rebound against Eastern Illinois on Monday. The Badgers hope to rebuild their spirits as they prepare for the stretch run in the Big Ten.”Mentally, it’s tough. You gain confidence from working hard and getting success,” Bakke said. “There has never been a lack of focus at the ultimate goal, and I think we stick to the game plan.”We’ve all been in hard times. Everyone experiences it through their life, and we will step out on the floor tomorrow just as ready to work as the day before.”last_img read more

Big East opens conference play with 5 Friday night prime time games

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on October 6, 2010 at 12:00 pm Contact Mark: mcooperj@syr.edu | @mark_cooperjr Commentscenter_img Starting Friday, the Big East will get its shot at redemption. Friday night national lights will be focused squarely on the conference. As Big East play opens up this weekend, the conference does not have the opportunities it had early in the season to build a reputation. Those have already been squandered. But conference play is a blank slate. Every team is still undefeated. No matter how bad the Big East has been up to date, the league champion still gets a BCS bid. And five Friday night games will provide the conference with the opportunity to climb back into the national psyche. ‘I think right now, everybody’s sitting back saying, ‘Hey, we can win this conference,” Pittsburgh head coach Dave Wannstedt said in the Big East coaches’ teleconference Monday. The Big East will have at least one game in prime time seven of the next eight weeks, including those five Friday evening games. For one night a week, at least, the conference gets to be the main attraction in college football. It starts with Connecticut at Rutgers (7:30 p.m., ESPN) Friday.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text Though both teams have had up-and-down seasons to date, the opportunity to play prime time on national TV has them thinking about a fresh start. ‘Whether it’s Thursday night or Friday (night), there’s nobody else on, and you’re the only team playing. There’s always an added excitement as you get to showcase your conference and showcase your own team,’ UConn head coach Randy Edsall said Monday. ‘This is something that’s really benefited and aided the Big East conference.’ The first Friday night Big East game last season featured Pittsburgh at Louisville. The Panthers rolled, 35-10, and the game proved to be a bit of foreshadowing. Pitt went on to a 10-win season and a victory in the Meineke Car Care Bowl, while the Cardinals won just four games. UConn and Rutgers enter the Big East opener heading in two different directions. After losing two of its first three games, the Huskies (3-2) have rebounded with back-to-back wins over Buffalo and Vanderbilt. Cody Endres has supplanted Zach Frazer as the starting quarterback for Connecticut: He’s thrown four touchdowns to one interception in his two games of action. Rutgers (2-2), on the other hand, hasn’t looked impressive at all this season. The Scarlet Knights have a five-point win over Florida International to go along with a win over FCS opponent Norfolk State and will go into Friday night’s game on the heels of a disappointing 17-14 loss to Tulane in Piscataway, N.J., during homecoming weekend. Starting quarterback Tom Savage left that game with an injury. His status for this week is still up in the air. ‘We need to regroup quickly,’ Rutgers head coach Greg Schiano said Monday. ‘We have a very good Connecticut team coming to our house Friday, and we’re looking forward to that opportunity.’ In addition to the game being in prime time and opening the Big East season, UConn versus Rutgers is becoming a heated rivalry. Since 2003, five of their seven meetings have been decided by a touchdown or less. Rutgers owns the all-time series with a 20-9 record. The Scarlet Knights have won in each of the past two years, but the two wins are by six points combined. The two teams’ rivalry on the recruiting trail also helps heat up the matchups between the schools. ‘(We’re) two football teams that are competitive year in and year out, and (with) the logistical proximity between the two schools, it’s just a good matchup every year,’ Schiano said. ‘It’s always been a very exciting game. ‘It comes down to the end, and it’s a very physical game every year.’ The only other in-conference game on the schedule this week is Syracuse at South Florida. The other four teams begin conference play in Week 7, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t excited for the start of a new season this weekend. The conference season. ‘I think the intensity level goes up a notch when you get into your conference play,’ Wannstedt said. ‘So (the rest of the season) is going to be very competitive, and I think it’ll add a little bit to the energy level to this game between Connecticut and Rutgers.’ Rutgers falling off from where it once was Four years. That’s how long it’s been since Rutgers became a national Cinderella story. It’s been four years since the Scarlet Knights reeled off nine consecutive wins to start the season — propelling RU to as high as No. 7 in the nation after a huge upset over No. 3 Louisville. Rutgers finished that season 11-2, and head coach Greg Schiano was commended for his work in turning around a program that hadn’t seen much success. Now, four years later, it’s looking as if that one season was nothing more than an anomaly. Sure, the Scarlet Knights have found some success. Twenty-five wins, including three bowl victories, in the past three years confirm that. But those numbers don’t look as impressive when compared to 2006. ‘Maybe that was ahead of schedule for where we are as a program,’ Schiano said Monday. ‘I’m certainly glad it happened because it allowed us to do a lot of things that are going to allow us to have, ultimately, the kind of success that we’re looking for. ‘‘I look at it as a long process. The people we’re chasing, they’re not sitting targets. They’re all working hard and investing money in their programs, as we are. … Ultimately we’re going to reach where we set out to reach.’ Big man on campus RB Ray Graham Pittsburgh Sophomore Last week: 29 carries, 277 yards, three touchdowns Graham entered this season as the backup running back for Pittsburgh behind last season’s Big East Offensive Player of the Year, Dion Lewis. It was expected that Lewis — who ran for 1,799 yards last season — would be the guy rushing for over 200 yards in a game. But not much has gone as planned for the Panthers (2-2) this season. The sophomore — who did not receive a carry in the season-opening loss at Utah — may be staking a claim for the starting running back job in Pittsburgh. He has run for 115, 100 and 277 yards in the last three games and is doing it at a video game-like 9.5 yards per carry. Despite playing one less game than essentially all other conference leaders, Graham is second in the Big East in rushing yards and tied for second in rushing touchdowns. And with Dion Lewis struggling (143 yards on 3.0 yards per carry) and injured (shoulder), Graham is inching closer and closer to winning that starting job. mcooperj@syr.edulast_img read more
