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?

Sen.

PVL: Water Defenders snatch second straight win

BaliPure-National University survived an end game scare by gritty Tacloban before closing out its second straight win, 25-22, 25-20, 22-25, 25-22, Saturday in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Reinforced Conference at the Batangas City Sports Coliseum.   American import Janisa Johnson paced the Water Defenders, who improved their record to 2-1 tied with Creamline, with 27 points off 22 attacks and five kill blocks. American reinforcement Alexis Mattthews had 23 markers anchored on 19 kills, three kill blocks and an ace for BaliPure, which dodged a fourth set collapse after building an early 8-1 lead. Youthful setter Joyme Cagande tallied 41 excellent sets to help the Water Defenders pummel Tacloban with 56 attack points. The Fighting Warays slowly chipped away their early deficit in the fourth frame with Shola Alvarez hitting back-to-back kills to close the gap, 23-22. Matthews smashed a hit to put BaliPure-NU at match point before Johnson hammered the match-clinching down the line hit.   “I think everyone's getting their chemistry na. If I'm gonna sum it up to one word, I think that's chemistry,” said BaliPure coach Babes Castillo. “We still have to work on our resistance and how we can sustain ourselves inside the court and our quick thinking.” The Fighting Warays dropped to 2-2 slate. Thai import Hyapha Amporn finished with 22 points while Alvarez and Jovielyn Prado had 11 and nine markers, respectively, for Tacloban.    --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

Prado sealed the win with a thunderous hit that went off the hands of two BanKo Perlas defenders.  “’Yung inensayo namin, yung game plan, halos talagang 90 percent nasunod,” said Fighting Warays head coach Nes Pamilar. “Kaya nga sabi ko kanina ‘yung umpisa naman parang naging breaks lang ‘yung pagkatalo. “Ang advice ko lang, ang paalala ko sa kanila, ‘yung inensayo natin, ‘yun na ‘yun lang ang mangyayari. So nasunod lahat, ‘yung game plan namin, ‘yung pano ba-blockin yung import nila pati ‘yung rotation namin. Nakinig naman ‘yung players,” he added. BanKo Perlas absorbed its second straight defeat in three matches. Thai import Jutarat Montripila had 22 points while American Kia Bright had 16 as the only Spikers in double figures.     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

Powerful storms kill at least 43 across northern India

LUCKNOW, India --- Powerful winds and rainstorms swept across a crowded swath of northern India, demolishing houses, uprooting trees and killing at least 43 people as the winds turned the skies brown with dust and sand, officials said Monday. Most of the deaths occurred when wind and falling trees caused buildings to collapse, leaving people buried in the wreckage. In the town of Bareilly, the minaret of a mosque fell on a group of people taking shelter in a neighboring courtyard, killing eight. In another town, one man was killed when he was hit by a billboard that had been blown loose. Along highways, large trucks were pushed over by the winds, crushing cars and motorcycles bene...Keep on reading: Powerful storms kill at least 43 across northern India.....»»
