Duterte dares clergy: Refute ‘Altar of Secrets,’ I’ll crucify myself on Holy Week

  MANILA, Philippines -- President Rodrigo Duterte on Thursday offered a bold challenge to the clergy: Disprove revelations contained in the book "Altar of Secrets" and he would have himself nailed on the cross. "Kung masagot nila ito at sabihin nila na may isang bagay dito na mali, abangan niyo ang Holy Week, dito ako magpalansang (magpapako) sa krus sa Bulacan. Oo. Totoo,"he said during the ground breaking of the Gregorio del Pilar National High School in Bulacan, eliciting laughter from the crowd. "Pero huwag naman matagal. Siguro 30 minutos na naka(pako).

F2 Logistics stops rampaging Petron, forces title decider

F2 Logistics spoiled defending champion Petron’s tournament sweep attempt as the Cargo Movers shocked the erstwhile unbeaten Blaze Spikers to force a decider in their best-of-three 2018 PSL All-Filipino Conference Finals series Tuesday at the MOA Arena. The Cargo Movers shook off a rusty start to carve out a 21-25, 25-19, 25-20, 25-17, Game 2 win to tie the series and hand Petron its first loss in the season-ending conference. F2 Logistics swung the momentum to their side with a dominating second set showing that saw the Cargo Movers lead by 12 and sustained the same intensity in the next two to seal the all-important win in two hours and 25 minutes. Ara Galang showed the way for F2 Logistics with 20 points including 17 off kills while skipper Cha Cruz-Behag displayed an all-around effort with 13 markers laced with 25 digs and 15 excellent receptions. Majoy Baron and Aby Marano wreaked havoc at the net combining for seven of F2 Logistics’ 12 kill blocks. Baron posted 14 points off 10 kills, three kill blocks and an ace while Michelle Morente and Marano scored 10 and eight, respectively, for the Cargo Movers. “Medyo tight noong first set tapos madami pang bad calls ‘yung referee, nandoon na ‘yung momentum tapos mapuputol na hindi nakikita, judgement call eh. Hindi naman challengeable ‘yung mga calls ng referee noong pa-end ang first set so hindi [na ako] nag-challenge,” said Cargo Movers coach Ramil De Jesus. “Noong second set medyo relaxed na eh so sabi ko masyado nang malayo ‘yung naging score ng set so nahirapan humabol,” he added. “So ibig sabihin kaya, sabi ko sa kanila, basta pag tyagaan lang ang situation ng nangyayari.” Game 3 is on Thursday at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan.       The Blaze Spikers, which took the series opener, 25-23, 25-11, 25-17, last Saturday, went off to a good start and looked poised to duplicate the same feat they did when Petron swept the 2015 edition of the conference. But F2 Logistics were quick to regroup to open up a 22-10 lead in the second set that changed the complexion of the match. “Naniniwala ako na it's by God's grace, binibigyan niya kami ng lakas, kahit ano ‘yung mga nararamdaman namin at ano yung line-up namin. Plus, pinaalala ni coach kung sino talaga kami, kung ano kaya gawin namin, and nagkaroon kami ng kumpyansa sa sarili, sa bawat isa, and kumpyansa para sa kasama, at malasakit din,” said Cruz-Behag. “Kaya nakuha namin yung Game 2, and may focus kami and may goal kami na makuha yung Game 3.” Ces Molina scored all but one of her 17 points off kills while Aiza Maizo-Pontillas and Bernadeth Pons finished with 11 and 10 markers, respectively, for Petron. Meanwhile, De La Salle-Dasmarinas finished its campaign on a high note after taking down College of San Agustin-Binan, 25-23, 25-18, 21-25, 25-16, in the maiden Collegiate Grand Slam. Skipper Eunice Castillo got 16 points while Dasilyn Delfin and Rain Ramos scored 14 markers each for DLSU-Dasma. Aliah Marce had 14 points while Lency Duarte posted 13 for CSA.   ---  Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»
