UE coach Pumaren expects Mbala to take on hot-shooting Pasaol

first_imgLATEST STORIES Mbala has been largely credited for neutralizing the league’s best scorers, including Paul Desiderio of University of the Philippines. But while Pasaol’s explosion has sparked UE’s turnaround in the past three weeks, the Warriors have been getting solid contributions from across the squad to stay in contention in the Final Four race.“Until there’s a fourth team that makes it, then we still have a shot,” said Pumaren. “We just have to stay positive with what’s going on. We just have to keep playing as one unit.”The Archers have won back-to-back games to start the second round—against Final Four contenders Adamson and Far Eastern U.With Mbala cooling off after a strong start to the season, Ricci Rivero and Santi Santillan stepped up to power the Archers past the Falcons, 80-74, over the weekend.ADVERTISEMENT Jo Koy: My brain always wants to think funny Margot Robbie talks about filming ‘Bombshell’s’ disturbing sexual harassment scene Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Kiss-and-tell matinee idol’s conquests: True stories or tall tales?

Vancouver weighs easing development agreement

first_imgA local developer might finally make headway with his request to rescind a decade-old development agreement in east Vancouver.Asghar Sadri asked the city to remove the agreement — or at least the use restrictions — because it’s restricting his ability to develop a parcel of land on Southeast Mill Plain Boulevard near Hearthwood Boulevard.The Vancouver Planning Commission recommended the agreement stay intact, especially the use restrictions which prohibit drive-thru businesses, 24-hour services, gas stations, self-serve storage businesses and car washes.The Vancouver City Council first considered Sadri’s request and the planning commission’s recommendation in July. The council didn’t indicate it would go against the commission’s reasoning but used the issue to spark a larger policy discussion about planning for the future.At Monday’s meeting, however, much of the council indicated it may favor honoring Sadri’s request — at least to some extent.The council was open to the idea of renegotiating the development agreement to remove some of the land-use restrictions.“It feels as though we’re putting additional restrictions on one parcel where we didn’t put restrictions on parcels that are similar,” said Councilor Alishia Topper. “It almost feels like we are a day late and a dollar short if we really want to drive that corridor.”Topper added that it seems the development agreement is disproportionately impacting Sadri’s parcel of land.Councilor Bart Hansen said that the agreement in place is now managing via exception.“I look at some of the properties nearby and I think we’re being a little bit overreaching,” Hansen said. “I would like a happy medium to be met.”last_img read more
