Ombudsman can dismiss his deputy, says Pimentel

Ombudsman Samuel Martires has the option to dismiss Overall Deputy Ombudsman Melchor Arthur Carandang from his post, but the latter could challenge the directive in the Supreme Court, Sen. Aquilino Pimentel III said on Monday. Pimentel, a lawyer, said Martires would not be defying the law by implementing the decision of the Office of the President sacking Carandang for disclosing the Ombudsman's investigation of President Rodrigo Duterte's bank transactions. "All of these [actions] have a presumption of regularity," Pimentel said in an interview. Should Martires proceed to dismiss Carandang, the latter could go to the high court to challenge the validity of the Palace directive,...Keep on reading: Ombudsman can dismiss his deputy, says Pimentel.....»»

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. Evangelista, who is married to Senator Francis "Chiz" Escudero, is known for her classic and chic s...Keep on reading: Heart Evangelista, Tootsy Angara show support for SOGIE bill by wearing rainbow pins at SONA.....»»

Duterte: I believe in God, but prove his existence – via a selfie

President Rodrigo Duterte says he's neither an agnostic nor an atheist. He believes in God. But he has a challenge: If anyone can to prove to him that God exists -- by showing him a selfie with the Creator -- he will resign. "By the way, I believe in one Supreme God. I never said I do not believe in God. I am not agnostic. I am not an atheist. I just happen to be a human being believing there is a universal mind somewhere which controls the universe," he said during the opening of the National Science and Technology Week in Davao City Friday. "So I do not believe in God? Yes, of course there is God," he added. Duterte, however, said he would want somebody to show up and say ...Keep on reading: Duterte: I believe in God, but prove his existence – via a selfie.....»»

BLOGTABLE: Best player (and team) in the Eastern Conference?

NBA.com blogtable With LeBron James reportedly moving West, who is the best player in the Eastern Conference right now? And who’s the best team? * * * Steve Aschburner: Giannis Antetokounmpo is now the best player in the East -- and if he develops a reliable perimeter shot, he soon could restore some balance as the best player in the NBA. With Mike Budenholzer taking over for drama king Jason Kidd (and interim man Joe Prunty) as the Milwaukee Bucks' coach, hopefully we'll see the "Greek Freak’s" talents blossom in all their glory and be put to proper team use. The best team figures to be the Boston Celtics, presumably with Kyrie Irving back at point guard, Gordon Hayward feeling like a brand-new free agent signee all over again and coach Brad Stevens and basketball boss Danny Ainge sorting out the rotation and depth chart. Now, if Philadelphia manages to acquire Kawhi Leonard without stripping away too many helpful role players, the Sixers might push up hard from their No. 2 status as “best team” even as Joel Embiid challenges Giannis for “best player.” Shaun Powell: Best player is Giannis Antetokounmpo by a whisker over Joel Embiid, only because Giannis can play multiple positions. He'll need to prove he can take the Bucks a bit deeper in the playoffs. A healthy Boston Celtics squad qualifies as the best team, although if the "star-hunting" Sixers are successful this summer, that could change. John Schuhmann: Giannis Antetokounmpo and Joel Embiid have the most talent, but in the playoffs, they both got outplayed by the same guy: Al Horford. He doesn't have the numbers that stand out, but he is the fulcrum on both ends of the floor for what is now the best team in the East. And even with the returns of Gordon Hayward and Kyrie Irving, he will be the Celtics' most important player next season, because his skill set remains unique on their roster. Maybe Antetokounmpo and/or Embiid surpass him in the next year, but for now, I'll go with the guy who just had one heck of a postseason run. Sekou Smith: It's a two-man battle between Giannis Antetokounmpo and Joel Embiid with the "Greek Freak" sitting just a notch above "The Process" on my list, due to the limited sample size we have from Embiid. Antetokounmpo has such a high ceiling (as his outside shot continues to improve and his handle evolves) that he could challenge for the title of NBA's best overall player in the coming years. Embiid could do the same if what we saw from him this season is an indication of what's to come. As for the best team, I'm going with the Boston Celtics. From coach Brad Stevens to the quality and depth of that roster, they have to be No. 1. They've made back-to-back trips to the Eastern Conference finals without anything close to their full complement of (healthy) stars. They sit atop the pile in the East until further notice......»»

Bong Go: I won’t run for Senate

President Rodrigo Duterte's most trusted aide seems to be following in his boss' footsteps. Like President Rodrigo Duterte, who played coy for months before announcing his decision to seek the highest post in the land in the 2016 elections, Christopher "Bong" Go over the weekend took to social media to reiterate that he had no plans of running for senator in the 2019 midterm elections. Go, the special assistant to the President, made the remarks a day after the President teased an audience of newly elected barangay officials that Go wanted a seat in the Senate. In a Facebook post, Go said he simply wanted to do his job, which was to follow his boss' orders. "Do not worry, as ...Keep on reading: Bong Go: I won’t run for Senate.....»»
