No rest for tired Gin Kings

Last season, it appeared like Brgy. Ginebra was in trouble when Meralco took a 2-1 series lead and was a couple of baskets away from a 3-1 advantage in the Finals. The Gin Kings had to claw their way to force a tie and they needed 'The Shot' to avoid a Game 7 and take the title outright in Game 6. This year, for The Rematch, the tables have turned. At least for Game 1 as its Ginebra that's off to a good start in the best-of-7 series. 'Last year, we didn't have a good start to the series,' Justin Brownlee said. 'This time we won. We just tried to set the tone,' he added following the champs' emphatic 102-87 series-opening victory on the road. While a 1-0 lead is good for morale, Brownlee knows that it doesn't mean anything if you can't build off of the momentum. With Game 2 already on deck after just a day of break and at least three hours of land travel from Quezon province back to Metro Manila, both teams, not just the Gin Kings, are in an extra challenge to stay fresh as possible. 'At this point, everybody's feeling fatigue,' Brownlee said. 'Everybody's tired. But you just have to fight it. You don't have time to be fatigued right now,' he added.   br /> --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8 .....»»

Just over a year ago, the Permanent Court of Arbitration in The Hague ruled that China's vaunted "nine-dash line" and subsequent historic claims over much of South China Sea had no basis in international law, in particular the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS).

Practical measures needed to curb illegal labor migration to China

LAI CHAU, Vietnam -- Many young people in the northern mountainous provinces of Lai Chau, Phu Tho and Lao Cai have rushed illegally across the border to China, leaving their parents and children behind in the hopes of finding a well-paid job to improve their lives.   Most are living in poverty, and are lured across the border by brokers' promises of jobs.

Some are even tortured by employers, police have said.   Figures from Lao Cai Province's Police Department showed that more than 4,940 people have illegally crossed the border to China fo...Keep on reading: Practical measures needed to curb illegal labor migration to China.....»»
