Potts out to fulfill promise to grandfather by joining PBA Draft

Dealing with them in my time with San Beda gave me great upside as I enter the PBA,” he said.With his confidence on a high, all Potts wants is to land on a team where his talents will be maximized.“I’d rather be on a team that needs me than a team that wants me because I want a team that needs me for the services I can give to the team,” he said.Potts feels he would be a good fit to teams like NLEX, Ginebra, Alaska, and TNT“There are teams that need help and I want to be that person who gives that help to the team that picks me.” UPLB exempted from SEA Games class suspension “This isn’t just about basketball.

View comments Entering the draft also moves Potts closer to realizing the promise he made to his deceased grandfather years back.“I didn’t know the PBA until I talked to my grandfather. He told me that if I couldn’t make it in the NBA, why not try the PBA. He said [the PBA] is like the NBA of the Philippines and I should look it up,” Potts recalled.“It’s funny because when I was visiting him in San Diego, he told me to at least make him that promise, that, ‘If I can’t make it to the NBA, the NBA D-League, at least, you try.’ I knew I have a family here and he told me to just try. And I tried.”That’s why Potts doesn’t have any doubts when he decided to make the jump to the pros.“I’m very prepared. I think about the promise I had to my grandfather a lot and I really believe that I’m ready. This is the product of years and years or preparation,” the 6-foot-3 swingman said.ADVERTISEMENT WATCH: Streetboys show off slick dance moves in Vhong Navarro’s weddinglast_img read more

Eating Your Cake and Having It!

first_img ShareEmailPrint To learn more, read: Posted on January 1, 2011June 20, 2017By: Onikepe Oluwadamilola Owolabi, Young Champion of Maternal HealthClick to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to email this to a friend (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)This blog post was contributed by Onikepe Oluwadamilola Owolabi, one of the fifteen Young Champions of Maternal Health chosen by Ashoka and the Maternal Health Task Force at EngenderHealth. She will be blogging about her experience every month, and you can learn more about her, the other Young Champions, and the program here.December was an awesome month with much better weather in Mumbai than when I arrived. I can now read Hindi script and I attended a course in Hyderabad, courtesy of my mentor, where I learned a lot about myself and enjoyed the fantastic Arab cuisine. I also had a fantastic Indian Christmas and an even better new year which I spent with Hellen Kotlolo, my Young Champion colleague working in Ahmedabad.Work was fast paced this month, but so much fun. I completed my evaluation report of SNEHA’s community resource centers and for the New Year I’m starting a new project, which combines so many of the different things I’m interested in and involves creating and testing a sustainability plan for our 4 community resource centers as their donor funding ends this year.The Young Champions project and Ashoka as a whole have piqued my interest, because it sees a future for two worlds I hitherto hadn’t understood the balance between: charity/philanthropy and profit-making/business. In my early days of exploring the concept of social entrepreneurship (which was relatively new to me), I started to look at the fields of development, funding, research, and business very differently, and every time I did a web search, Ashoka was at the forefront of this interesting field. In social enterprises, I found an area where people with diverse skills and interests could come together to build models of change that could actually help people to live and make a living, make immense profit (social and financial), and try out a whole new combination of things to reduce the reliance of the field of development solely on external donor funding, and help the business world make relevant social profit.Now I know that there is no magic equation for sustainability, and that balancing all the kinds of profit needed to keep ventures running for an NGO is a huge task. But I love the fact that we can try, and that I’m working on a plan to make SNEHA’s community resource centers sustainable.I’ve written out some ideas, divided my plan into different important bits, I’m planning a community market survey and focus group discussions, and I’m terribly excited and scared. My question is: can we pull this off? Can we sustain the drive for maternal health in the slums, help the community to commit small sums to this venture to help with some overhead costs for the center’s operation, and help a good number of women to improve their livelihoods from businesses woven around the center?Most of my childhood I remember being told, “You can’t eat your cake and have it!” But in the world of social entrepreneurship I think I can, and it’s a terribly exciting feeling. I’m working with a great team of people, and I’m looking forward to testing out our strategies and seeing how they work. I know it’ll take some time to get it right, but I look forward to seeing it work.Share this:last_img read more

a month agoBurnley fullback Matt Lowton: Excited by season prospects

first_imgAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Burnley fullback Matt Lowton: Excited by season prospectsby Paul Vegasa month agoSend to a friendShare the loveBurnley fullback Matt Lowton believes the foundations are in place for a successful season as he prepares to head back to former club Aston Villa.The Clarets are sitting ninth in the Premier League table with eight points from their opening six games.“We finished strong and we wanted to make sure we took that into this season,” said the Clarets’ right-back to Burnley’s website.“We’re very happy with the way we’ve started. We have got a lot of points on the board and but for a late goal at Wolves it could have been a few more.“There’s probably been only one half of football (at Brighton) where we’ve not been where we wanted to be, and we put that right last weekend, so the way we have started we’ve got a great platform to build on.“We didn’t start last season the way we wanted to and we were down the bottom and struggling a little bit. It’s hard to get the results together when you are looking over your shoulder.“The way we have started this time has given us a great platform to kick on and hopefully we can do what we did a couple of seasons ago.” last_img read more

Aadyam season five takes centre stage

first_imgThis country’s relationship with theatre has been much like a classic tale of love: A pot pourri of emotions, melodrama, humour and romance. It started way back as a purely narrative driven form and gradually moved on to our folk dances and music. Live entertainment gradually evolved from the real to the reel, the stage to the screen. But then there were those struggling to keep the spark alive with their grand visions of raw theatrical beauty.One such promoter of the cause is Aadyam — a theatre initiative on a quest to initiate the uninitiated. A product of love and passion for the arts, this initiative is back for its fifth season with a commitment to grandeur and series of performances, unparalleled to anything seen before. Also Read – An income drop can harm brainSince its inception in 2015, Aadyam has been breathing life into scripts, ideas and artistic visions. Plays with big production value and colourful backdrops have been synonymous with their productions. The last season saw both, the stage and the audience, come alive with these majestic sets, making theatre-going a sensory experience rather than just a show. This is also where the core idea of Aadyam is realised – giving producers a chance to experiment at this scale with minimal risk. Also Read – Shallu Jindal honoured with Mahatma AwardSpeaking about what’s in store for this season, Artistic Director and theatre veteran Shernaz Patel says, “Aadyam Season 5 is full of great stories and sweeping sagas that traverse the globe. From the streets of Kabul to the back alleys of Lucknow, from the ghats of Benaras to the court rooms of Washington DC, each of these stories will transport you into different and exciting worlds. And even though these worlds maybe unchartered, these plays will resonate with you. For the human beings who inhabit them are all dealing with universal human emotions…love and loss, joy and hope, honour and retribution. The play genres are also wonderfully varied with a mix of laughter and suspense, drama and music. Adding to this Aadyam’s unrelenting pursuit of high standards in performance, storytelling, direction, design and production, these plays will definitely enrich your lives and entertain you.” Brian Tellis, Co-Founder and Group CEO of Fountainhead MKTG says, “Entering our landmark 5th year of Aadyam theatre productions, we take a moment to pause, reflect upon, and celebrate this country’s rich theatrical heritage. Productions from the very first year of Aadyam – a theatre initiative that has always believed in large scale productions – are still running strong today. This is testament to the fact that us theatre-goers revel in the magic of this storytelling medium and crave for more year upon year. Feeding off this marvelous energy, we want to make this year even more special – with the launch of the Aadyam blog ‘Stage-Write’, we want to talk to our audience directly and together, grow this beautiful art form that we all love so much and engage with it in ever more enriching ways”. Looking forward to another season of Aadyam, he adds, “The productions themselves are oozing with talent of course and they will always comprise the core of Aadyam. Here’s to another year of magic.”last_img read more
