How Derrick and Sanya ‘hurdled’ their intimate scenes

She has done her homework," said Derrick Monasterio of Sanya Lopez, who despite having had no experience with romantic love, "performed well" in their intimate scenes in Connie Macatuno's erotic film, "Wild and Free." "When I first talked to Sanya about those scenes, I asked her, 'Are you ready for them?' She challenged me by saying, 'Are you ready for it?' That's when I realized that she's game," Derrick told the Inquirer. "I liked it that I was able to guide her throughout the shoot. In real life, I like to be the one who initiates for things to happen. I want to be the aggressive one." When the director says 'Cut!' while shooting a love scene, how does he manage to snap out ...Keep on reading: How Derrick and Sanya ‘hurdled’ their intimate scenes.....»»

LSGH dominates this week s NBTC NCAA 24

With still two games left in the elimination round, the CSB-LSGH Junior Blazers were the first to secure a twice-to-beat advantage as the Final Four draws near.  It was the first time in school history they achieved the incentive, proving that they are still the team to beat in the NCAA Juniors Division.  Led by Inand Fornilos and Joshua David, CSB-LSGH bested Lyceum, 80-75, on Thursday, to notch their 14th win in 16 games. Fornilos was a man on a mission as he poured in 12 points, 13 rebounds, and two blocks. His stellar play earned him the number one spot in the Chooks-to-Go/NBTC NCAA 24 weekly high school rankings.  David was equally superb with his 20-point production, placing him right behind Fornilos for the second spot. David also made a significant impact on the defensive end as he challenged the 3-point attempt by John Barba in the closing moments, helping his team get the win.  At third in the weekly rankings is JRU's John Amores. The versatile swingman put up 12 points, six boards, and three steals in a semis-securing win over EAC that puts them back in the Final Four for the first time since 2014. Completing the top five are standout guard Joel Cagulangan of the Junior Blazers and Jonnel Policarpio of the Mapua Red Robins.  Perpetual Help's Ezdel Galoy crashes into the sixth spot after a pair of solid outings. He first put up 19 points and 14 rebounds in a win over EAC then followed it up with another double-double of 21 points and 10 boards vs Letran.  Rounding up the top ten are Mapua's Dan Arches, Arellano's Aaron Fermin, Lyceum's Mac Guadana, and Mapua's Clint Escamis.  Here are the complete Week 14 rankings of the Chooks-to-Go/NBTC NCAA 24: 1. Inand Fornilos (CSB) (4) 2. Joshua David (CSB) (15) 3. John Amores (JRU) (3) 4. Joel Cagulangan (CSB) (2) 5. Jonnel Policarpio (MU) (7) 6. Ezdel Galoy (UPHSD) (N/A) 7. Dan Arches (MU) (13) 8. Aaron Fermin (AU) (6) 9. Mac Guadana (LPU) (1) 10. Clint Escamis (MU) (8) 11. Emman Galman (UPHSD) (11) 12. Penny Estacio (SBU) (N/A) 13. Marwin Dionisio (JRU) (N/A) 14. Rom Junsay (AU) (10) 15.

Thielen it: Vikings star on record-setting receiving pace

By Dave Campbell, Associated PRess EAGAN, Minn. (AP) — Last week during team drills with the Minnesota Vikings, Adam Thielen stretched out his body and dived to try to catch an off-target pass. Thielen immediately questioned aloud the wisdom of his decision to risk pain when ultimately the completion didn't matter. Thielen, though, couldn't resist. There's hardly a ball in the air he doesn't believe he can grab, and this is anything but blind faith. Through six games, Thielen leads the NFL with 58 receptions and 712 yards. He is on a staggering pace to reach 155 catches and 1,899 yards over a full season, which would break the record for receptions (Marvin Harrison, 143 in 2002) and fall 66 yards short of the best for yards (Calvin Johnson, 1,964 in 2012). "Adam has a great heart. He's really a tough kid," said coach Mike Zimmer, who revealed the anecdote about Thielen's ill-advised practice dive. "He comes over to me and talks to me during the game about stuff that's going on, and it's always about, 'These guys can't guard me.'" That's a brash declaration, decidedly un-Minnesotan, but this lifelong native of the state isn't deluding himself. He's not the biggest or the fastest of his peers around the league, the biggest reason he went undrafted as an NCAA Division II prospect at Minnesota State, but his route-running ability is just about unparalleled. "That dog mindset, as far as how he approaches the game and how he wants to win each and every rep, that's something we have in common and that's something that goes far with me especially because I know how he feels," said fellow Vikings wide receiver Stefon Diggs, who is on pace for 107 catches and 1,160 yards himself. "I know if there's anything bothering him or anything like that, he still never makes an excuse and he makes the plays. At the end of the day, we all only care about making the play." Thielen has the most receptions through six games in NFL history, and he is the first player since 1961 to start a season with at least 100 receiving yards in each of the first six games. The 28-year-old is on track to set all kinds of Vikings records, no small feats with a franchise that has featured Pro Football Hall of Fame members Cris Carter and Randy Moss. This is not where Thielen's motivation originates, though. He is noticeably uncomfortable when asked by reporters about such statistical accomplishments. "I'm just trying to help my team win games," Thielen said. "Honestly, if you lead the league in receiving but you're not winning games, it's not a fun business to be in, so it doesn't really matter what your stats are." His take was no different on Sunday after he had 11 receptions for 123 yards and a touchdown that helped the Vikings beat Arizona 27-17. "I feel like I sound like a broken record, but it's such a team stat," Thielen said . "When you have great players around you, that's the only way you can do those things. We have so many great players and great guys that are selfless." There was no better example of Thielen's impact on the success of the Vikings' offense than early in the third quarter against the Cardinals as they clung to a 13-10 lead. Latavius Murray had just taken a 4-yard loss on a smothered toss sweep on second down, bringing up third-and-13 from the Vikings 42. Kirk Cousins was hit by Chandler Jones as he released the pass, one of 15 times he sent the ball Thielen's way in a tight space in the zone coverage. With outstretched arms and dragging toes, Thielen secured the catch right in front of the first-down marker before tumbling out of bounds. Cardinals coach Steve Wilks challenged the call from the opposite sideline, perhaps assuming the difficulty of the task would reveal a bobble on the replay, but there was none to be seen. Five plays later, Thielen hauled in a 13-yard touchdown pass from Cousins for a 10-point lead. "It's kind of a hidden play because it's not the one that scored the points or the one that people will talk about," Cousins said, "but that is a big, big play.".....»»

‘Guadalupe’ a rich visual production

Guadalupe: The Musical," an original production by Julie Borromeo's Performing Arts Foundation Inc. (until Oct. 14, Meralco Theater, Pasig City), recounts the miraculous events witnessed by the people of Mexico in 1531. After an apparition of the Virgin Mary before Juan Diego (Cocoy Laurel), the faith of his town is challenged, caught in an uneasy flux between the people's newfound religion and the cruelty of the Spanish authorities. This clash of cultures becomes "Guadalupe's" biggest strength, serving as a generous source of colorful visuals and intricate music. Unfortunately, the musical doesn't build a strong story from its multitude of themes. It has content that gather...Keep on reading: ‘Guadalupe’ a rich visual production.....»»
