Volleybelle Michele Gumabao wins Bb. Pilipinas-Globe 2018 crown

Michele Gumabao's Cinderella run has ended with her being crowned as Miss Philippines-Globe Monday morning during the coronation at the Big Dome. Coming into the contest, the 5'9" volleybelle had no prior experience in beauty pageants, but has been vocal about being eager to prove doubters wrong. Indeed, Gumabao has done just that, claiming one of the six titles in the Philippines' most prestigious beauty pageant. Aside from the crown, the 25-year-old also won the special Miss Cream Silk award. Gumabao made a lot of buzz in the weeks leading up to the coronation night, all while making an important statement about athletes being multi-dimensional individuals. As Binibini #19, Gumabao impressed audiences with her straightforward manner of answering interviews and free-spirited personality that she has possessed since her playing days with De La Salle University in the UAAP. The volleybelle out of Quezon City is currently an assistant coach for the all-female tactical crew of Adamson University's women's volleyball team, and she is currently signed to the Creamline Cool Smashers in the Premier Volleyball League.  Gumabao's winning tradition is well-documented. As a part of the UAAP powerhouse DLSU Lady Spikers and the PVL Pocari Sweat Lady Warriors, she has won numerous titles, and with her win in the Bb. Pilipinas, Gumabao is primed for even bigger things......»»

Nicko Falcis hits back at Kris for saying his family ‘pawns’ to political powers

"At least now it's confirmed: how you rich and powerful people think of us working class --- who have to claw our way to get the proper education to earn a rightful degree, so we can then work long and hard to provide properly for our families." This was Nicko Falcis' reply to Kris Aquino after the latter went live on Facebook on Jan. 15 while in Singapore. In the video, which was also uploaded to Aquino's YouTube account "The Aquinos," she mentioned that the Falcis family is just "pawns" to bigger political powers. "The Falcis family don't realize they are just pawns, parang sa chess," Aquino said then.

Bus singer gives voice to Venezuela’s growing diaspora

LIMA, Peru --- A year ago, Venezuelan migrant Reymar Perdomo was singing for spare change on jammed buses, struggling to make ends meet while building a new life in Peru's capital. But her life took a turn when she wrote a heartfelt reggae song about leaving her homeland that went viral on the internet and has brought tears to hundreds in the Venezuelan diaspora that has spread around the globe. Now Perdomo combines her street performances with appearances at concerts and on TV programs, and her song has become the unofficial anthem of Venezuelans who have fled their country's economic implosion. "This song gives me goosebumps" said Junior Barrios, a Venezuelan migrant who l...Keep on reading: Bus singer gives voice to Venezuela’s growing diaspora.....»»

Sooners QB, A s pick Kyler Murray declares for NFL draft

By Cliff Brunt, Associated Press Kyler Murray, the first-round Major League Baseball draft pick and Heisman Trophy-winning Oklahoma quarterback, declared himself eligible for the NFL draft on Monday. Murray announced his decision in a tweet, ending his brief and storied college career. What's next for the Murray is not yet known. I have declared for the NFL Draft. — Kyler Murray (@TheKylerMurray) January 14, 2019 The Oakland Athletics made the speedy outfielder the ninth overall selection last June and agreed to $4.66 million signing bonus. The A's agreed to let him continue playing football, and he made the most of it by winning the Heisman in his only season as a starter for the Sooners. He passed for 4,361 yards and 42 touchdowns and ran for 1,001 yards and another 12 scores, posting the second-best passer efficiency rating in FBS history. As Murray dominated, his draft stock improved. Jim Callis, a senior writer on MLB.com, said the A's couldn't have foreseen that Murray would be a potential first-round NFL draft pick because of his size. Listed at 5-10 and 195 pounds, Murray would be a small quarterback in the NFL by any standard. "The primary risk was, what if he gets hurt on the football field?" Callis said, recalling his conversations with scouts before the season. "I don't think anybody was saying he could be an NFL first-round pick." Once the NFL emerged as a potential option for Murray, the A's took action. Representatives of the A's and Major League Baseball met Sunday with Murray, and the possibility existed that Oakland could offer more money by putting him on the 40-man major league roster. Even with the A's efforts, Murray would have a shot at a bigger payday sooner in football and he wouldn't have to go to the minor leagues. Callis and other observers say it is very unlikely Murray will be able to play both sports because he's a quarterback. Bo Jackson and Deion Sanders pulled it off, but Jackson was an outfielder and a running back and Sanders was an outfielder and cornerback. "This isn't Bo Jackson showing up and here, we'll pitch you the ball and you outrun everybody, or Deion Sanders helicoptering in and his great speed, coverage skills," Callis said. "When you're a quarterback, you have to put in hours and hours of study running an offense. ... You can't play both sports when you're a quarterback. I think if he wants to play quarterback, which appears to be his greatest love, there can't be any question that he's 100 percent football." Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley said in November that if anyone could play both sports, it's Murray. "I don't want to put it past him," Riley said. " A lot of people would say he can't do what he's done right now — how well he performed for our baseball group here this spring, and how well he's played here for us. So there's certainly some different dynamics with it. Obviously the fact that he would want to play quarterback, if he chooses the football route, is a little different than Deion or Bo or some of those guys. But he athletically is so gifted and can transition between the two." The NFL scouting combine is in late February and early March and could intersect with his spring training — major league camp starts in mid-February and minor league camp begins in early March. If Murray wanted to participate in the combine, the A's would need to allow it and it would need to be reflected on his contract. Murray's road to his NFL draft choice was a winding one from his prep days in suburban Dallas. After a disappointing freshman season in football at Texas A&M in 2015, he transferred to Oklahoma. He sat out a year because of transfer rules, then was the backup during Baker Mayfield's Heisman-winning 2017 season. Murray then had an impressive enough baseball season in 2018 to draw the A's attention. Callis said Murray is somewhat like a faster version of outfielder Andrew McCutchen. After he was drafted, Murray took batting practice at the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum, greeted by "WELCOME TO OAKLAND" on the big scoreboard with his photo. A's manager Bob Melvin, executive Billy Beane and general manager David Forst closely followed Oklahoma football this season as the Sooners reached the College Football Playoff, losing to Alabama in a semifinal. As recently as last month, the A's said they expected Murray to pursue baseball. Murray had also said multiple times throughout the football season that he plans to focus strictly on baseball after this season......»»

One more look at the Globes: what the TV cameras missed

  LOS ANGELES---Timothe Chalamet was easily the most affable among the stars in the pit, chatting up fellow actors and taking selfies with them, from Christian Bale to Lupita Nyong'o. In the green room, two silver-haired icons, Harrison Ford and Richard Gere, talked while waiting for their turn to present awards.   Those are among the scenes not captured by the television cameras in the recent 76th Golden Globe Awards at The Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills.   As usual, the stars and studio bosses schmoozed during the commercial breaks, but once Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg resumed their hosting duties onstage, the A-listers went back to their respective se...Keep on reading: One more look at the Globes: what the TV cameras missed.....»»
