Winwyn on mom Alma: I’ve never seen any of her movies

  It's such a shame that I haven't seen any of her movies yet," said actress-beauty queen Winwyn Marquez, who has long been searching for copies of projects that her mom, Alma Moreno, did in the '70s and '80s. Winwyn said it's unfortunate that Alma was not able to keep any copies of her films, and that she only got to see her mom in Gil Portes' "Carnival Queen" and Ishmael Bernal's "City After Dark" in photographs. "What my Mama did save are tapes of some episodes of her TV show 'Loveli Ness.' I got to watch her dancing there," said Winwyn of Alma's 1988 program where the latter was seen in her signature costume that earned for her the title "Tangga Queen."

Nothing childish about Donald Glover

  LOS ANGELES---Donald Glover is on fire. As Childish Gambino, he scored his first No. 1 with "This Is America." The music video for that song, while sparking debates and is disturbing to some people, is hailed as one of the best music videos so far in 2018. And people are loving him as Lando Calrissian, who was originally played by Billy Dee Williams in the earlier "Star Wars" films, in "Solo: A Star Wars Story." In fact, Donald will star in a Lando Calrissian/"Star Wars" spinoff movie. And his Golden Globe- and Emmy-winning comedy series "Atlanta's" Season Two managed to be as riveting as Season One.

Philippines aims for top-three finish in 2019 SEA Games

After a very successful stint in the 2018 Asian Games held in Jakarta and Palembang in Indonesia which saw the Philippines finish 19th out of 46 participating nations, the country aims to finish at least third when the 30th South East Asian Games roll along in the archipelago next year.  In the previous edition held in Kuala Lumpur last year, the Philippines finished sixth out of 11 nations, ending the Games with a 24 golds, 33 silver and 64 bronzes in the medal count. With the country hosting for the first time since the top overall finish in Manila back in 2005, Philippine Olympic Committee President Ricky Vargas aims to replicate the successful hosting of the events 13 years prior. "I hope it all works out. To perform well. Our goal is to host well. Our goal is to be in the Top 3," Vargas said in between PBA games on Sunday.  Vargas also added that Department of Foreign Affairs Secretary Alan Peter Cayetano, who is also the SEA Games organizing committee chairman, had already presented the budget proposal to Congress for appropriation in the 2019 National Budget. With that said, all participating countries will meet again at Clark in Pampanga, which will be the center of the Games, this November to see the progress of the venues there, and possibly add an event, particularly skateboarding to the Games. "We'll surprise you in skateboard. There are two other skateboard artists we're looking at that will really play the game. So we are really blessed with skateboard."   __   Follow this writer on Twitter, @philipptionary. .....»»

PVL: Almadro to Dani Ravena: Walang duwag na Ravena

If you are not familiar with Oliver Almadro, he was the highly emotional and animated coach of the Ateneo Men's Volleyball Team known for motivational speeches during timeouts and expressive sideline antics. Now, with Almadro taking the head coaching job for the Ateneo Lady Eagles, it's time for women's volleyball to experience the Almadro-brand of motivation. In Ateneo-Motolite's debut match in the PVL Open Conference Sunday afternoon, second year libero Dani Ravena received just that.   "Ravena ka. Walang duwag na Ravena." Coach O tries to inspire Dani mid-game. 🙌 #PVLonABSCBN pic.twitter.com/jNptTxaHM3 — ABS-CBN Sports (@abscbnsports) September 23, 2018   After consecutive misreceptions by Ravena in the third set versus Pocari-Air Force, Almadro singled her out in this inspirational timeout. "Ravena ka. Walang duwag na Ravena," said Almadro, "You're doing good, believe me." He said this to the youngest of the Ravena siblings who came from a family of athletes. From her father Bong, who was a former UAAP and PBA player and now the head coach of Talk N' Text to her mother Mozzy, who is a former volleyball player and current TV analyst, down to his tremendous baller brothers Kiefer and Thirdy, a lot is expected from Dani. True enough, after that, Ravena and the rest of the Lady Eagles bounced back to take home the match at the fourth set. After the thrilling game, Almadro expressed to reporters that that kind of motivation is something that he is sure to always offer to the Lady Eagles because after all, that is his thing. "Siguro [gumana], kasi nakabalik eh," he said with a chuckle, "Siguro nakatulong yon. Sana mga ganun ko, alam niyo naman hyper ako eh, sana yung mga ganun ko mag click sa utak nila." "Wala naman talagang Ravenang duwag eh, tama naman," he added. Fans on Twitter also took delight in that moment of Almadro and Ravena. For a while, that timeout trended.   “Ravena ka! Walang duwag na Ravena!” - Coach Oliver to Dani Ravena#LabanAteneo — Team Ateneo (@AteneOBF) September 23, 2018   Gusto kong maiyak sa pa-pep talk ni Kowcho kay Dani. “You’re good! Believe in yourself! Ravena ka, walang Ravena na duwag!” — Les Niere (@cluelesster) September 23, 2018   coach o to dani: "Don't doubt yourself, magaling ka. Ravena ka. Walang duwag na Ravena. You're doing good!" 😭💙 — 🔅 (@the_phenoms) September 23, 2018 Don't worry fans of the Ateneo Lady Eagles, all of you are bound to see more of Almadro's motivational goodness in the next games......»»

PBA: The road gets tougher for Fuel Masters

Phoenix head coach Louie Alas knows the road will get tougher as they go deeper into the 2018 PBA Governors’ Cup. With the Fuel Masters looking to secure a top four elimination round finish to secure a twice-to-beat advantage in the quarterfinals, Alas knows that from here on out they must win as many games as they can in their remaining five assignments. The Fuel Masters climbed to solo second spot after claiming their third straight win over Magnolia, 95-82, Sunday at the Big Dome. Phoenix moved behind unbeaten Blackwater (4-0) with a 5-1 win-loss record.    Still, Alas doesn’t want to take his chances especially with the tournament’s format. “Hindi mo pa rin masasabi kasi dami namin sa taas e,” he said. “Puro one game lang behind sa amin.” “Iba ‘yung format ngayon. One to four is twice-to-beat,” added Alas. “So win as much as you can kahit nasa playoffs ka na.” The Fuel Masters’ difficult road ahead will start Saturday against Barangay Ginebra in Cagayan De Oro.   “Puro malakas (na ang kalaban) starting on Saturday against Ginebra,” he said. The Gin Kings are playing limp with a string of injuries but Alas is wary on Ginebra’s never-say-die spirit. “Ginebra alam mo naman ‘yan next man up ‘yan. Kahit five guys lang si coach Tim (Cone) maglalaro at maglalaro,” said Alas. “One breakdown lang sa depensa kaya natalo (against Blackwater last Friday), meaning kahit depleted sila kailangan A-game namin dalhin pa rin namin.” “So we’ll be tested again on Saturday,” he added. The match is slated to begin at 5:00 p.m.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

Shot clock reset among rule changes approved by NBA Board of Governors

NBA press release NEW YORK – The NBA Board of Governors today unanimously approved rules changes in advance of the 2018-19 season. Beginning with the 2018 NBA preseason, the shot clock will reset to 14 seconds in offensive rebounding situations, as opposed to 24; the clear path foul rule will be simplified; and the definition of a “hostile act” will be expanded for purposes of triggering instant replay review. Details on each rule modification appear below: Shot Clock Reset – The shot clock will reset to 14 seconds in three scenarios: after an offensive rebound of a missed field goal or free throw that hit the rim; after a loose ball foul is called on the defensive team immediately following a missed field goal or free throw that hit the rim; or after the offensive team gets possession of the ball after it goes out of bounds immediately following a missed field goal or free throw that hit the rim. The rule has been in effect in the NBA G League since the 2016-17 season, in the WNBA since 2016 and in FIBA play since 2014-15.  The rule was also in place during 2018 NBA Summer Leagues. Simplification of the Clear Path Foul Rule – The changes to the clear path foul rule establish “bright line” standards based on the position of players at the time of the foul while also narrowing required referee judgment and reducing the number of variables impacting the rule’s application. A clear path foul is now defined as a personal foul against any offensive player during his team’s transition scoring opportunity in the following circumstances: the ball is ahead of the tip of the circle in the backcourt; no defender is ahead of the offensive player with the transition scoring opportunity; the player with the transition scoring opportunity is in control of the ball (or a pass has been thrown to him); and if the foul deprives his team of an opportunity to score. As part of the clear path foul rule simplification, referees will no longer need to make judgment calls as to whether or not a defender was between (or had the opportunity to be between) the offensive player with the transition scoring opportunity and the basket.  In addition, referees will no longer have to determine whether or not the defender was at any time ahead of the offensive player prior to committing the foul, nor will it be relevant whether or not a defender beat the offensive player with the transition scoring opportunity into the frontcourt.  Further, plays of this nature will no longer have to originate in the backcourt (since transition scoring opportunities can originate in the frontcourt). Under the simplified rule, a clear path foul cannot occur if the fouled player is in the act of shooting or if the foul is caused by the defender’s attempt to intercept or deflect a pass intended for the player attempting to score in transition. If a clear path foul is committed, the offended team will continue to be awarded two free throws and possession of the ball on the sideline nearest the spot where the foul occurred. To view examples of the clear path foul rule simplification, click on the following link. Expanded Definition of “Hostile Act” for Replay Purposes – For purposes of triggering instant replay review, the definition of a “hostile act” has been broadened to enable referees to determine the appropriate penalty for players or coaches if they are involved in hostile encounters with each other, referees or fans. The NBA’s Competition Committee unanimously recommended these rules changes to the Board of Governors......»»
