Two ex-presidents honor McCain at funeral as Trump heads to golf club

WASHINGTON -- Two ex-presidents from opposing parties united Saturday to honor US senator John McCain, in a momentous funeral that championed his aspirations of political comity but also rebuked the tribalism and division trafficked by Donald Trump. As millions tuned in to the nationally televised memorial attended by the breadth of Washington powerbrokers, Trump himself was notably absent -- leaving the capital to head to his golf club in Virginia just when eulogies to McCain were being delivered. And while Republican George W. Bush and Democrat Barack Obama offered subtle swipes at the current commander in chief, McCain's daughter Meghan used the words of Trump's campaign slo...Keep on reading: Two ex-presidents honor McCain at funeral as Trump heads to golf club.....»»

Americans bid McCain solemn farewell with US Capitol honor

  WASHINGTON --- Americans paid their final respects Friday to John McCain as the national icon lay in state in the US Capitol as part of a momentous sendoff for the war hero and statesman. McCain's widow Cindy, his seven children and his 106-year-old mother Roberta McCain joined scores of members of Congress, state governors, diplomats and other dignitaries to bid the senator farewell. President Donald Trump, who had feuded bitterly with McCain, was notably absent from the somber ceremony in the Capitol Rotunda, an honor accorded to just 30 Americans throughout the nation's history. The last visit to Washington by McCain --- who died last Saturday at age 81 after a yearlong...Keep on reading: Americans bid McCain solemn farewell with US Capitol honor.....»»

Shorthanded NorthPort loses more players to injuries

ANTIPOLO---NorthPort's start in the PBA Governors' Cup is headed for a rough patch. Not only did the Batang Pier, who once held the franchise name GlobalPort, lost to NLEX, 123-107, they're also bound to lose some of their players on top of those who were already absent in their opening game. Head coach Pido Jarencio said he's looking to put guards Jeric Teng and Nico Elorde in the injury list. Teng and Elorde, Jarencio said, are sure to be out of the squad who already lost forward Sean Anthony to injury and star point guard Stanley Pringle who's representing the Philippines in the 2018 Asian Games. "First of all, we sorely miss the two guys Stanley and Sean, I think by S...Keep on reading: Shorthanded NorthPort loses more players to injuries.....»»

San Beda captain Cesca Racraquin had to watch her team falter in two straight outings in the Premier Volleyball League Collegiate Conference from the bench. Racraquin was absent for two of the Red Lions' last three losses because of a couple injuries on her left leg.

Absent Browns WR Gordon in contact with teammate

By Brian Dulik, Associated Press BEREA, Ohio (AP) — Josh Gordon hasn't reported to Cleveland Browns training camp, but his presence is being felt on the field. Fellow wide receiver Rashard Higgins is wearing Gordon's gear under his uniform at each practice. "That's my locker buddy, and I'm wearing his shirts every day," Higgins said Saturday. "That's why I feel like I've got superpowers when I come out here." Gordon remains away from the team as part of his treatment for drug and alcohol addictions. An NFL spokesman said the former Pro Bowl wideout has not been suspended. Browns general manager John Dorsey and coach Hue Jackson remain confident that Gordon will return at some point, but no timetable has been set. Cleveland opens its preseason Thursday at the New York Giants. "It will be like Josh never was gone when he comes back," said Higgins, a third-year pro. "That's how we're going to treat things. I feel like the team is a good supporting cast for him, just him knowing that we're here for him and we've got his back, no matter what." The 27-year-old Gordon has played in only 10 games since leading the NFL with a franchise-record 1,646 yards receiving in 2013. He is in Stage 3 of the league's substance-abuse program and faces another indefinite ban for any violation. Higgins exchanged texts with his friend one day earlier, saying he is "in good spirits." They have not discussed football in a conversation since Gordon was placed on the reserve/did not report list on July 23. "We know Josh is handling his business off the field, and when he comes back, he'll be ready to go," Higgins said. "We don't talk about anything on the field. We just talk about: 'Hey, what's up bro? How ya' doin'?' Just family, little things like that." Gordon resumed posting workout videos on social media Thursday from the University of Florida, but he has not made any statements since camp began. He has missed 43 of the Browns' last 48 games because of suspensions. Last season, Gordon was reinstated by Commissioner Roger Goodell following a three-month stay in a rehabilitation facility. He played in the final five games — catching 18 passes for 335 yards and a touchdown — after revealing that he had not previously appeared in an NFL game while sober......»»

Heart Evangelista, Tootsy Angara show support for SOGIE bill by wearing rainbow pins at SONA

For many, the ensembles donned by lawmakers and their partners and guests were the focus of attention in President Rodrigo Duterte's third State of the Nation Address (Sona) on Monday. Sen. Nancy Binay's Filipiniana attire, for example, matched the blue carpet, while Senator Grace Poe wore an understated white, knee-length dress, and Ilocos Norte Governor Imee Marcos' bloody red gown. For some, it's the small details that count. Accessories certainly weren't absent in the occasion, and for Heart Evangelista and Tootsy Angara, their rainbow pins were perfect in delivering their message.

Change in speakership not a coup — House official

Gloria Macapagal Arroyo replacing Pantaleon Alvarez would "override" any supposed irregularity in the process.   Castro was reacting to Alvarez reportedly raising questions about the validity of the takeover, since the audio and the mace symbolizing the Speaker's authority were absent during Arroyo's oath taking.   "It's not a coup.

CAPE CANAVERAL, Florida --- Former NASA astronaut Buzz Aldrin was noticeably absent from a gala kicking off a yearlong celebration of the 50-year anniversary of the first moon landing, even though his nonprofit space education foundation is a sponsor and he typically is the star attraction. The black-tie Apollo Celebration Gala held under a Saturn V rocket at the Kennedy Space Center on Saturday evening featured a panel discussion by astronauts, an awards ceremony and an auction of space memorabilia.

Regine Velasquez upset over Duterte’s remarks about God: ‘Marami sa amin ang naniniwala’

President Rodrigo Duterte appears unfinished with his tirades about God, as he once again mocked believers last Friday, July 6, to prove God's existence --- via a selfie. This follows his earlier comments about God last June when he asked, "Who is this stupid God?" during an oath-taking of Cagayan de Oro village officials. His remarks have since drawn ire and criticism from many. His latest remark about proving God's existence with a selfie wasn't absent of criticism either. Some, too, have expressed their disappointment, one of which was Asia's Songbird Regine Velasquez who took to her Twitter page, July 7, to speak about it.

Argentina has big weaknesses to address before facing France

By Jerome Pugmire, Associated Press ST. PETERSBURG, France (AP) — After the euphoria of scraping through to the last 16 of the World Cup, Argentina now must address its glaring weaknesses. Argentina has little time to prepare for Saturday's match against France, which is considered among the tournament favorites, yet has much to work on. Particularly on defense. Argentina's feeble defense was exposed in 3-0 defeat to Croatia last week and once again in Tuesday's 2-1 must-win game against Nigeria. Argentina won with an 86th-minute goal from defender Marcos Rojo, but during the second half the team looked on the verge of another capitulation at the back. Here is a look at some of the key issues facing Jorge Sampaoli's team before taking on France in Kazan: MASCHERANO MISERY If Javier Mascherano is supposed to be protecting the defense, he's not doing a very good job. With 146 international appearances, the 34-year-old Mascherano should be a rock for Sampaoli's team. But instead of offering the protective screen in front of the back four, Mascherano is often proving to be a weak link. As his bloodied face on Tuesday showed, there is no doubting his commitment. But his judgment, especially for someone with so much experience, is lacking. Two horribly misplaced passes gave Nigeria dangerous positions to attack from, while it was Mascherano's clumsy challenge that led to Nigeria's equalizing goal from the penalty spot. In his defense, there may be mitigating circumstances. Although a holding midfielder by trade, Mascherano dropped deeper when deployed as a center half for Barcelona over the past few years. Now back in his traditional position, he often appears caught in two minds as to whether to push up as a midfielder does, or stay back more sensibly like a defender. While it does not excuse his poor passing, it may explain some of his confused judgment. FALLEN STARS Angel Di Maria's failure to control a simple pass during a promising counterattack against Nigeria was a sad sight for such a fine talent. As the ball flew off his foot and went out of play, a helpless look formed on Di Maria's face. Long considered one of the world's best wingers, the 30-year-old Paris Saint-Germain player is not living up to his reputation in Russia. He looked despondent when he was taken off against Nigeria with 20 minutes left, his self-confidence glaringly absent. But it is feasible he is still affected by what happened during the season with PSG. Di Maria was PSG's most in-form player heading into the first leg of its Champions League last-16 game against Real Madrid on Feb. 14, but was surprisingly left out entirely by PSG coach Unai Emery. "I was boiling (inside) because I felt I should have played, or at least have come on," Di Maria said. Perhaps his fragile confidence has not been repaired. But Mascherano and Di Maria are not the only big-name players performing well below their best. So is Gonzalo Higuain. The burly striker looked nervous and heavy-legged against Nigeria, blazing a great chance high and wide with the score 1-1 with 10 minutes left. In the end, he was reprieved by Rojo's late winner, but it was not the finish expected of a forward with a combined 267 goals for Real Madrid, Napoli and Juventus. He has 31 for Argentina, too, but tellingly he has not scored in his past eight games for his country. WHERE IS DYBALA? Fans hoping to see Paulo Dybala, one of the brightest attacking talents in soccer, playing in Russia may not get their wish. The 24-year-old forward regularly impresses Juventus fans with his trickery and spectacular goals — scoring 26 times in 46 appearances last season — but for whatever reason, Sampaoli does not seem to need him. With time running out against Nigeria, the coach still did not bring him on, even though Dybala has the skill and imagination to unlock defenses. He has only played once for Argentina all year, and with Sampaoli in charge this does not look like it will change. FRENCH THREAT Although France has yet to find its top form , Argentina's creaking defense will be under threat from its highly rated forwards. Kylian Mbappe and Ousmane Dembele are two of the fastest players in the world, while Antoine Griezmann was top scorer at the European Championship two years ago. Imposing striker Olivier Giroud is one of the best headers of the ball around, which gives Sampaoli's back four even more to worry about from crosses, corners and free kicks......»»
