Happy 10th Birthday to These Songs and Albums

There's always new music popping up left and right. Some from established artists we already love as well as from those up and coming. As much as we enjoy fresh tracks, it's also fun to reminisce the old ones. Like the songs and albums we would put on repeat in high school or college. For 2018, there are many albums turning 10 years old. From pop tracks to auto-tuned voices, 2008 was an interesting year for music. Today, let's travel back in time and listen to the songs we heard on the radio and saw on MTV. "Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)" by Beyonc Beyonc has accomplished a lot in the past decade like giving birth to three children and setting new performance standards with #B...Keep on reading: Happy 10th Birthday to These Songs and Albums.....»»

What Ogie Alcasid is OA about

After three decades (and counting!), Ogie Alcasid still has what it takes to hit our hearts in all the right spots with his songs. Let's celebrate the master songwriter's 30th anniversary in the biz and his 51st birthday on Aug. 24, 8 p.m. at the Big Dome in his concert, "OA" (for tickets, call 9115555). I'm more than happy to be one of Ogie's close friends. He is super down-to-earth, that I almost forget how famous he is. I am forever grateful to Ogs for being so game to sing in all my parties. His impromptu "mini-concert" is the highlight of my celebrations. I was touched when he bought me a special edition of Rolling Stone magazine, featuring Michael Jackson.

Curry, Durant lead Warriors past Mavericks, end 2-game skid

By Janie McCauley, Associated Press OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Stephen Curry had 20 points, eight assists and seven rebounds, and the Golden State Warriors bounced back from a tough recent stretch to beat the Dallas Mavericks 121-103 on Thursday night (Friday, PHL time). Kevin Durant added 24 points, nine rebounds, four assists and two blocked shots while Draymond Green put up another impressive line: 12 points, 10 rebounds, six assists, two blocks and two steals. Dallas star Dirk Nowitzki had 16 points, 11 rebounds, season-high five steals and two blocks, while rookie Dennis Smith Jr. scored 22 points. Curry's pretty three-point play with 1:28 left in the third put the Warriors up 88-83, and once Golden State got going in transition the Mavericks couldn't keep up in what became a dunk fest. The Warriors began the fourth on a 14-5 tear. Despite another slow start, Golden State eventually found its groove and delivered all the big plays when it mattered. The defending champions had dropped three of four, including their worst defeat at home in Tuesday's (Wednesday, PHL time) 125-105 loss to the Thunder. Klay Thompson added 18 points, five rebounds and four assists on his 28th birthday. Durant dunked in transition on back-to-back possessions late in the second quarter, one off a steal he made, and Andre Iguodala also had a slam as the Warriors sent the game to halftime tied at 60. David West contributed 10 points, seven rebounds and seven assists in nearly 17 minutes for Golden State, which earned a 10th straight victory in the series. GREEN'S FINE AND FRONT TOOTH Green was fined $50,000 by the NBA for directing inappropriate and offensive language toward an official during the Oklahoma City loss. Green was ejected with 8:13 remaining after a second technical for arguing with the officials, specifically female referee Lauren Holtkamp. The NBA said the specific incident for which he was penalized occurred in the second quarter. On Thursday night (Friday, PHL timE), Green got hit with his 14th technical of the season — two away from an automatic suspension — in the second quarter for arguing after a delay of game warning. Green will wear clear braces for a couple of weeks after his front right tooth was knocked back in a collision with Russell Westbrook during Tuesday's (Wednesday, PHL time) loss. Green said dentists will monitor his tooth. "It hasn't died. Hopefully it stays alive," he said. TIP-INS Mavericks: Dallas signed guard Kyle Collinsworth for the rest of the season. He previously had a pair of 10-day contracts. "I'm very happy to have him back," coach Rick Carlisle said. "He's done some very good things since he's been with us. He's earned this opportunity. So, I'm happy for him. And I'm sure all of our guys are." ... F Harrison Barnes missed facing his former team as he sat out a second straight game with a sprained left ankle. ... The Mavericks were swept 4-0 in the season series. Warriors: In the first, Curry passed Sacramento's Vince Carter (2,082) for sole possession of seventh place on the NBA's all-time list for made three-pointers. ... Green became the 10th Warriors player in franchise history to reach 600 career steals. ... The Warriors avoided their first three-game skid since March 8-11 of last year when Durant was out with a left knee injury. ... Raiders WR Michael Crabtree sat courtside.

Djokovic cruises, Federer battles, del Potro out in Shanghai

By Sandra Harwitt, Associated Press SHANGHAI (AP) — Roger Federer was stretched to three sets for a second consecutive match to reach the Shanghai Masters quarterfinals on Thursday. Nevertheless, the top seed insisted he was content with how he's playing. Federer defeated Roberto Bautista Agut of Spain 6-3, 2-6, 6-4, a day after being taken the distance by Daniil Medvedev of Russia. "I'm actually quite happy," Federer said. "Bautista really had to raise his level of play in that second set to stay with me. I mean, he really caught fire, I thought. I served, I think, 80 percent in that second set and got broken twice." Novak Djokovic cruised through his second-round match, but Juan Martin del Potro had to retire after hurting his right knee in a fall. Federer led Bautista Agut by a set and a service break when he became entangled in a fight that lasted until the second-to-last game of the third set. Bautista Agut, a finalist here in 2016, finally offered Federer an opening to take control by surrendering his serve in the ninth game of the third set. Federer will play eighth-seeded Kei Nishikori, a finalist in Tokyo last week, in the quarterfinals. Nishikori ousted Sam Querrey 7-6 (7), 6-4 on Thursday. Third-seeded Del Potro, who has been playing with a cold throughout the week, was playing Borna Coric when he fell near the end of the first set. Del Potro had the knee wrapped but called it quits after losing the first set 7-5. Djokovic earned partial revenge when he beat Marco Cecchinato 6-4, 6-0. The only other time the second-seeded Djokovic played Cecchinato was in the French Open quarterfinals, where the Italian upset him in four sets. A Masters event is a level below a Grand Slam, but Djokovic was rapt to crush Cecchinato. "I was making him play always an extra shot," Djokovic said. "I was aggressive when I needed to be. The second set was perfect, really." Since Djokovic lost that French Open match to Cecchinato, he's won 28 of his 30 matches. The Serb is on a 15-match winning streak, which includes title runs at Cincinnati and the U.S. Open. He's bidding to win a record fourth Shanghai title this week. He will take on seventh-seeded Kevin Anderson of South Africa, whom he leads 6-1 on head-to-head. Djokovic defeated Anderson in straight sets in the Wimbledon final in July. Anderson ousted 10th-seeded Stefanos Tsitsipas of Greece 6-4, 7-6 (1). Fourth-seeded Alexander Zverev of Germany also advanced to the quarterfinals by pasting Alex de Minaur of Australia 6-1, 6-4. Zverev will play Kyle Edmund after the Briton defeated Nicolas Jarry of Chile 7-6 (5), 6-3......»»

Confident and content, Paul McCartney rejuvenates sound

As perhaps the biggest living legend of rock, Paul McCartney would raise few eyebrows if he stayed in a comfort zone of rehashing Beatles tunes to adoring nostalgists. Instead, the 76-year-old has recorded one of his most ambitious albums in years, "Egypt Station," displaying not only a predictable confidence in his classic sound but an eagerness to freshen it for a new era. "Egypt Station," which comes out on Friday, reveals an artist who feels on top of his game and has rooted out whatever negativity has built up over the decades.

PBA: Balkman s birthday celebration is postponed for now

Renaldo Balkman has never beaten Alaska until now. As the defending champion Beermen rolled past the Aces Saturday to start the 2018 PBA Commissioner's Cup semifinals, Balkman finally had his breakthrough win. But none of that is important now as Renaldo has some bigger things to look forward to in his comeback PBA stint. More than anything, Balkman wants to win the title he never got five years ago. "Tonight, we won. We’re not looking to the past. We’re looking to the future. We got two more left," Balkman said. "Back in the gym tomorrow and practice, working hard for Game 2 on Monday," he added. Saturday is doubly special for Balk as he celebrated his 34th birthday. He wished that a championship came as a guft but he'll settle for one win for now. "It's always good when you get the win and celebrate your birthday at the same time. I wish it was a championship that we won on my birthday. But we got a long series left. We got two more left. Next game on Monday," he said. The celebration will be postponed as well as Balkman is looking forward to rest up and prepare for the semis grind again. "We just won a game, go back home, get some rest, and get back on Monday. I’m not young anymore so I’ll get my rest," he said. "I’ll save my celebration later this year when I get a couple days off, when I’m not playing basketball. What counts right now is winning a championship. Everybody says happy birthday to me, great win for us and it’s a great day for me," Balkman added.     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»
