Duterte: Don’t blame gov’t for priest’s death

DAVAO CITY---President Duterte on Friday said the death of Father Mark Ventura in Gattaran, Cagayan province, should not be blamed on the government.   "There's a priest who died there, have you considered other angles? Why should we kill a priest? I am being blamed," he said.   But Mr. Duterte said those blaming his government for Ventura's death should look into the real motive of the killers.   "I am not at liberty to do it because it's being investigated," he said. Sen. Francis Pangilinan earlier said that the priest's death was doubly sad because it occurred "under this administration, which boasts of prioritizing law and order and brags about re...Keep on reading: Duterte: Don’t blame gov’t for priest’s death.....»»

Tears, confusion as Crimea mourns college shooting

KERCH, Undefined --- A crowd of mostly young people gathered at a makeshift memorial on Thursday outside the college in Crimea's Kerch where a teenage gunman killed at least 20 people a day earlier. But as well as mourning, some in the Moscow-annexed peninsula were trying to understand how a single student was able to commit a massacre of this scale. The killer was identified by authorities as 18-year-old Vladislav Roslyakov, who reportedly legally bought the gun used to kill students and teachers before killing himself in the college library. More than 40 others were injured. Russia's National Guard and the army cordoned off the technical college on the night of Wednesda...Keep on reading: Tears, confusion as Crimea mourns college shooting.....»»

PVL: Cool Smashers put dent on Perlas Spikers’ record, win fifth straight

Creamline played sharp and aggressive and the BanKo Perlas Spikers just didn’t know what hit them. Alyssa Valdez and the rest of the Cool Smashers dominated the Perlas Spikers for a quick 26-24, 25-13, 25-21, win Wednesday in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Collegiate Conference at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. What was expected to be a shootout between two of the top title contenders turned out to be a one-sided affair with Creamline winning their fifth straight to tie their victim and Ateneo-Motolite at the top spot with 5-1 win-loss record. “Even on our part din we didn’t expect that it would be this fast kasi usually kunwari BanKo, five sets,” said Valdez. “Minindset din namin before pa na kapag BanKo ang kalaban namin it would be a long game and I think sa kaka-mind set namin we give it our 100 percent.” Valdez dropped 20 points built on 16 kills, three aces and a kill block for the Cool Smashers, who snapped the erstwhile unbeaten Perlas Spikers’ five-game winning streak. Jema Galanza added 15 markers with 13 coming from attacks and added 14 excellent receptions while setter Jia Morado had 28 excellent sets for Creamline, which tallied 46 attacks. Risa Sato, Fille Cainglet-Cayetano and Risa Sato combined for 17 points for the Cool Smashers, who received 21 free points off BanKo's errors. Creamline will close the first round of eliminations on Sunday against Ateneo-Motolite. Kathy Bersola was the only Perlas Spiker in double figures with 12 points while Nicole Tiamzon and Suzanne Roces finished with nine markers each. Dzi Gervacio was limited to only five points, her first single digit performance in the conference after averaging 18 points per game in her first five outings, for BanKo.         --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

PVL: Madayag shows leadership, maturity in win

Graduating player Maddie Madayag felt that she needed to do something after Ateneo-Motolite went down 1-2 in their match against Tacloban Wednesday in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Open Conference. “Gising na Maddie,” she told herself. Snapping out of a slump, Madayag delivered the spark that the fueled the Lady Eagles’ impressive push in the closing stretch of the fifth frame to extend their winning run to three and move up to a share of the lead with a 25-18, 19-25, 11-25, 25-17, 15-11, come-from-behind win over the Fighting Warays. “Medyo lutang kanina,” admitted Madayag, who scored 12 points and was a monster at the net with five kill blocks. Ateneo-Motolite moved to a share of the lead with Creamline and BanKo with 5-1 win-loss slate. Madayag scored three points in the fifth set including a quick attack that gave the Lady Eagles a 9-5 lead. The Ateneo-Motolite senior also played a huge role in the Lady Eagles’ fightback after Tacloban closed the gap at 9-8, hitting a down the line spike that fueled a 4-1 burst for a 13-9 advantage. “’Yun nga kailangan ko ipakita sa mga bata kasi kung ano ‘yung makikita nila yun din gagawin nila,” she said. “Kasi nga seniors, so kung ano makikita nila sa mga ate even sa training so parang if I show them the fighting spirit yun din makukuha din nila.” “’Yun kasi para ma-adapt nila na, ‘I need to fight, I really need to fight sa game,’” Madayag added. With Madayag leading the way in the crucial junction of the match, Ateneo-Motolite escaped with its second straight five-setter game and third win in a duel that went the full distance.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles  .....»»
