On suspension of excise taxes on fuel

Lately, its been rather painful to have my car refueled, what with the ridiculously expensive fuel prices. I drive an SUV, so a full tank of diesel fuel (at 50 liters) would cost a little over P2,400, with the average price of diesel at P48.35 a liter. I could just imagine what the gasoline-driven cars [...] The post On suspension of excise taxes on fuel appeared first on The Manila Times Online......»»

UAAP: Gomez de Liaño bros scolded for not making free throws

The Gomez de Liaño brothers were simply unstoppable in UP's close 88-87 win against the NU Bulldogs at the Smart-Araneta Coliseum Sunday afternoon. Juan led the Maroons in scoring with 20, but added eight rebounds and six assists for his trouble. Meanwhile, his older and taller brother Javi, added a career-high 19 markers, eight boards, and five dimes. Both were dominant in every facet of the floor in that win -- except for the charity stripe. The siblings' free throw display was not obviously their greatest aspect Sunday, as the brothers combined just to shoot 2/10 from the 15-foot line, good for 20-percent. If not for JV Gallego's costly error in the dying seconds of the game, Javi's two missed free throws under eight seconds left could have cost UP the win. The boys' dismal performance caught the attention of their parents, who jokingly reminded their children to practice their foul shots.  Mga anak, please naman. Magpractice naman kayo ng freethows. 🙏 — Bert & Anna GDL (@bertlovesanna) October 7, 2018 Even teammate Bright Akhuetie joined the fun, taking a swipe at the brothers' supposed lapses in the fourth quarter. I wonder why they choked today, @javigdl22 @juan_swish9 Would give 80% on the line all day.. One of those days I guess — Bright Osagie Akhuetie (@bright_bigtinzz) October 7, 2018 Don't forget to bend your knees, kids. .....»»

PBA: Meralco still looking on the bright side after fifth straight loss

SANTA ROSA CITY -- For the past two Governors' Cup conferences, Meralco and Ginebra have headlined the Finals. In those two years, the fans were given numerous unforgettable moments that are now recorded in the annals of PBA history.  And for this year's Finals rematch, it was the same. Ginebra emerged victorious once again. However, a potential third straight Finals matchup is already on the line since the Gin Kings the Bolts their fifth consecutive loss. For guard Chris Newsome, things are continuing to stay positive in the locker room, despite not having the best of circumstances. Two key cogs in Meralco's rotation are still out. Jared Dillinger and Ranidel De Ocampo, both nursing leg injuries, are seen as veteran presences but are now relegated to mere voices on the bench. Things were actually pretty even for the majority of the game, and then Meralco surged to an eight-point lead, 84-72, in the late stages of the third quarter.  However, Ginebra flexed its muscles and responded with an 11-0 run of their own, and never looked back, much to the delight of the partisan crowd. "We just have to play smarter, those lapses cost us the game. Those lapses cost us the last game also. You know, 10 points with like four minutes to go, four, five minutes to go. We just have to be aware of those lapses, we have to play a solid 48 minutes if we're going to win, they're playing really well," Newsome said after the game. Of course, struggling is not anything new for Meralco, since they usually hover in the bottom half of the Philippine Cup standings. And when they face Northport on Friday at the Mall of Asia Arena, the team will be humming a familiar tune, despite the circumstances. "...[I]t seems such a hard hill to climb now so you know in our locker room, everybody's postitive, trying to keep their heads up. Of course, we're looking forward to brighter days."   __   Follow this writer on Twitter, @philipptionary. .....»»
