first_imgThe Senate had already started its ownreview of the government’s spending plan for next year and is expected to comeup with its own version of the GAB. SECRETARY Roy Cimatu expressed hope theDepartment of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) would receive the P3.036billion additional funding it needed to bankroll three crucial programs theagency will start to implement next year. Last Sept. 20, the House approved onthird and final reading the P4.1-trillion national budget for 2020, includingthe P25.5 billion allocation for the DENR which is 16 percent higher than theP21.96 billion it got for this year. The deliberation likewise tackled theneed for the additional funds for the full implementation of and theacceleration of land titling and distribution of public lands. He explained that with its ownEnforcement Bureau, the DENR could effectively enforce environmental laws andprotect its workers who have been the vicious targets of illegal loggers andother environmental criminals. During the budget deliberation at theHouse Appropriations Committee held last Sept. 6, both the Majority andMinority blocs threw their support behind Cimatu’s plans to create anEnforcement Bureau with the assurance that they would push for the augmentationof the DENR budget during the bicameral conference on the 2020 GAB. The environment chief made the appeal afew days after Bienvenido Veguilla Jr., a DENR forest ranger, was brutallykilled by suspected illegal loggers in El Nido, Palawan. Environment secretary Roy Cimatu “We are hopeful the budget augmentationwill be included in the final version of the 2020 General Appropriations Billto be passed by Congress-the House of Representatives and the Senate-andsigned into law by President Rodrigo Roa Duterte,” Cimatu said. The proposed funding increase includes P1.2billion for the Enforcement Bureau; P1.8 billion for the full implementation ofthe Republic Act No. 11038 or the “Expanded National Integrated Protected AreasSystem (E-NIPAS) Act of 2018” and P36 million for land titling. “We are hoping that the DENR would getthe same extent of support from the senators just like their counterparts inthe House when they meet at the bicameral conference committee,” Cimatu said.

Young USC team prepares for challenge

first_imgThe last time USC faced Notre Dame in South Bend, Ind., — Oct. 17, 2009 — it narrowly edged the Fighting Irish 34-27, marking its eighth straight victory over its longtime intersectional rival.Tough task · Junior left tackle Matt Kalil and the USC offensive line will be faced with slowing down Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te’o. – Carlo Acenas | Daily TrojanFast-forward two years later, and only three starters from that team remain in junior quarterback Matt Barkley, senior middle linebacker Chris Galippo and redshirt junior defensive end Wes Horton.As the team’s other 19 starters this year look to face off against the Irish in Notre Dame Stadium for the first time as starters, many look to leave their own legacies in a rivalry that dates back to 1926.“I went there my redshirt freshman year when I didn’t play,” junior left tackle Matt Kalil said. “It’s a pretty historic stadium. The campus is just insane. It’s a great place to go play.”USC ended up surviving a scare against Notre Dame in the final moments that day, as quarterback Jimmy Clausen fielded the ball at the USC four-yard line, but his pass to tight end Kyle Rudolph was knocked down by senior cornerback T.J. Bryant, who is redshirting this season.But that was the last time USC, then coached by Pete Carroll, defeated Notre Dame.Last season the Trojans’ watched the Irish snap their eight-game winning streak 20-16 at the Coliseum, a game that remains familiar for many current starters including Kalil.But with both teams looking to crawl back into the top-25 after being ranked at the beginning of the season, Saturday’s contest carries other implications as well. Notre Dame, which began the year ranked No. 16 in the Associated Press top-25 poll, opened the season with consecutive losses at home to South Florida and at Michigan. But it has reeled off four straight wins, including most recently a 59-point outburst against Air Force.“This is very important for them because they can’t lose anymore,” freshman linebacker Dion Bailey said. “For us, we’re out playing for respect, because no one really respects us.”Though Bailey and others might like to gain more respect, particularly on the national level, beating Notre Dame would appear to be high up on a list of goals.USC coach Lane Kiffin, however, opted to downplay the significance of the rivalry and all the hype surrounding the matchup.“Because we’re so inexperienced and so young the last thing we want to do is build it up too much and you put too much pressure on them and they can’t handle that,” Kiffin said. “It isn’t about that. You don’t all of a sudden play different because of where you’re playing or who you’re playing. You still have to prepare extremely well in all phases of the game.”—Though much of the talk in recent weeks has centered on the defense, as well as the receiving core headlined by sophomore Robert Woods and freshman Marqise Lee, the Trojans’ offensive line has put together an impressive first half of the season of its own.Through six games, USC has allowed just four sacks — tied for ninth best nationally with UCLA and Nevada.“It just shows our attention to detail, listening to the little assignments,” Kalil said. “Basically winning our matchups, our one-on-ones.”On the season, Notre Dame’s defense has recorded 15 sacks, highlighted by junior linebacker Manti Te’o, who leads the team with four sacks. Te’o originally committed to USC before signing with the Irish on signing day in February 2009.“We’re just focusing and doing what we have to do as a team, get our assignments done and get after these guys,” Kalil said. “They’re a great team that could easily be 6-0 right now. Notre Dame has always been a great team and we certainly have a challenge ahead of us.”—Injuries could prove problematic for USC on Saturday, as its injury list continues to grow. Lee and senior tailback Marc Tyler, who each sustained shoulder injuries against California last week, will be game-time decisions, Kiffin said Wednesday.Tyler suffered a dislocated shoulder at Cal, but Lee’s injury is said to be less serious.“If there’s any way for [Lee] to play he’s going to try to play, so we have to really watch that,” Kiffin said.With redshirt freshman cornerback Anthony Brown out for the season because of a broken ankle and redshirt sophomore cornerback Torin Harris still sidelined with a shoulder injury, junior cornerback Isiah Wiley is expected to start Saturday in place of Brown. Freshman cornerback Ryan Henderson will serve as the team’s fourth cornerback, Kiffin announced.last_img read more

Badgers prepare for Border Battle, OSU

first_imgThe University of Wisconsin women’s soccer team looks to get back to its winning ways against Big Ten rival Minnesota Thursday.After losing to No. 22 Michigan at the McClimon Complex Sunday, Wisconsin (7-3, 1-2) travels west to take on Minnesota (6-5, 1-2), searching for its second Big Ten victory.After being shut out by the Wolverines in a 3-0 loss over the weekend and only managing four shots on goal, the Badgers’ offensive squad is looking for improvement against the Golden Gophers.Freshman midfielder McKenna Meuer, who has three goals on the season, said she is hoping a simpler mindset will help the offensive attack this Thursday.“In practice we worked on basically just getting back to the basics,” Meuer said. “[We worked on] keeping the ball, switching the field, basically the principles of attacking when you play soccer. So we’re definitely not looking to get shut out again.”The Wisconsin offense will have its hands full with a Minnesota team that boasts a stingy defense that has allowed only four goals in its last eight games.Head coach Paula Wilkins said she realizes just how good Minnesota’s defense is.“Their competitive mentality is fantastic,” Wilkins said. “They are great in the air. They’re great battling for first balls and second balls. We use the term ‘Earn the right to play.’ So, we need to win the ball first so that we can knock the ball around a little bit to spread them out. If we play into their hands and play pretty central, we’re going to struggle, so we need to get wider on them.”UW’s defense has been reeling as of late, allowing eight goals in its last five games, including two games in which the Badgers let up three goals.Team captain and senior midfielder Lindsey Johnson said she wants to see more unity in the defense.“We need to just get back to how we were playing at the beginning of the season,” Johnson said. “We need to play together as a team, get up together and defend together. That’s how we were good and didn’t allow little goals.”Minnesota’s offensive attack is led by sophomore forward Taylor Uhl, who has a Big Ten-best 11 goals on the season along with six assists.Johnson said she knows how dangerous Uhl is offensively and said her defensive squad needs to keep an eye on Uhl at all times.“We just need to keep track of her the whole game,” Johnson said. “We obviously know that she is going to be a threat, so we need to keep count of her and not let her turn and not let her get shots off. If she does, then we’ll hopefully be there. We have trust in our entire box.”Wisconsin has struggled in its rivalry with Minnesota recently, going 1-4-1 in the last five years. In their last meeting, Minnesota knocked Wisconsin out of the Big Ten tournament, defeating the Badgers 2-0.Although the Gophers have gotten the better of the Badgers lately, Wilkins said she still appreciates the rivalry that exists between the two teams.“The border battle is a wonderful thing,” Wilkins said. “It’s something that we have to take pride in. It’s something that I have learned about since I have come here as a coach, and we are definitely going to talk about that.”Sunday, Wisconsin will travel to Ohio State, where it will take on the Buckeyes (7-3, 2-1), who are tied for third in the Big Ten.Ohio State has won seven of its last eight games and has scored at least two goals five times during that stretch.Senior forward Tiffany Cameron is the biggest threat the Buckeye’s have offensively, sporting nine goals and an assist on the season.The Buckeyes lead the all-time series with the Badgers with a record of 9-8-4, including a 1-0 victory over UW last season.Meuer said the team has a rivalry with Ohio State comparable to the Minnesota rivalry and is expecting a fight.“I know from my sisters playing here that they hated Ohio State,” Meuer said. “Ohio State is a huge rival, almost right up there with Minnesota. It’s going to be a brawl. It’s going to be a really big game and it’s going to be a tough competition.”last_img read more
