She’s over him–but doesn’t have the heart to tell him

Dear Emily,   I am an only daughter with three brothers, and it was very traumatic for my family when I got pregnant in high school by a boy from a poor family. They lamented that I threw away my future. I was sent to relatives in the north to give birth.   While waiting for my due date, my strict aunts made me learn a trade "for my own good." This, they said, would give me financial independence later on. I turned that little trade into my little business after a few years.   After so much hard work as a single mother, my daughter went on to become a lawyer. Life's been good.   The child I bore when I was still in high school looks just like m...Keep on reading: She’s over him–but doesn’t have the heart to tell him.....»»

Homeward-bound Schooling set for next phase at Asian Games

JAKARTA, Indonesia (AP) — The hardest lap for any swimmer is usually the one coming home. That's when they have to try their hardest, giving it everything they have to get to the finish. Singapore's Olympic gold medalist Joseph Schooling is about to discover what that means when he's not in the competition pool. After spending the last nine years in relative anonymity in the United States, the 23-year-old Schooling is getting ready for the second half of his sporting career back in southeast Asia, knowing he probably won't be able to walk down the street or go for dinner without being noticed. "It's everywhere but it shows that they support you and they're excited to see you, and so you can't complain," Schooling said. "You can never brush aside your fans. You've always got to reciprocate so I'm completely fine with it." Schooling is competing this week at the Asian Games in Indonesia, where he has entered in the 50- and 100-meter butterfly races, three relays and the 50 freestyle. He will bid to defend his title in the 100 butterfly on Wednesday. Despite leaving Singapore in his teens to chase his dream of winning an Olympic gold medal, the island-state has always been in Schooling's heart. But so too has Texas, where he has been studying at University and training under the watchful eye of Eddie Reese. Schooling will complete his economics degree later this year before returning to Singapore, but will take back two permanent reminders of his time in the U.S. that changed his life. One is the tattoo on his left shoulder of the University of Texas mascot, the Longhorn. The other, inked after he won Rio, is the Olympic rings on his right bicep. The Longhorns won the NCAA national title four years in a row while Schooling was on the team and he credits his time there for helping him win the ultimate prize when he beat American great Michael Phelps for the Olympic title in the 100 fly. "It's great, it's a different atmosphere, great teammates," Schooling said. "I feel like it's the perfect environment for high performance." Schooling wants to keep swimming through to the 2024 Olympics in Paris and, although he hasn't made a final decision on his training plans, he has spent the past few months practicing with Singapore's new high-performance unit and likes what he sees. Australia's Stephan Widmer, who helped Libby Lenton and Leisel Jones win Olympic titles, has been appointed performance director at the institute while Gary Tan is the national head coach and Sonya Porter, who has extensive experience coaching in the U.S., is the technical director. Schooling's biggest challenge could be how to deal with his celebrity status but after he held off Phelps on the biggest final lap of his life to date, he's confident he can manage. "It takes some getting used to but at the end of the day if you focus on what you're doing and you don't care about outside distractions it's ok," he said. "I like being in that position and I don't see it as a burden at all.".....»»

UAAP: La Salle now has its point guard of the future in Joel Cagulangan

Still with one year left to play for La Salle Greenhills, Joel Cagulangan has already committed to his college of choice. The NCAA champion and top point guard prospect will continue to wear green and white when he suits up for De La Salle University following his high school graduation next year. “Opo, sa La Salle po ako maglalaro; yung dream school ko po,” he told ABS-CBN Sports. The development was first reported by Go Archers.com. Cagulangan had for himself a breakout season in last year’s NCAA Juniors when he willed the Greenies to their first-ever championship. To do so, he and his team had to fight through a playoff for the fourth and final playoff berth, top-seeded and dynastic San Beda High School, and then defending champion Mapua High School. Through all of that, the 5-foot-9 playmaker left his heart out on the floor each and every game and his teammates only followed suit all the way to the title. Along with being a champion and Finals MVP, Cagulangan was also a Mythical selection, averaging 16.2 points in 42.7 percent shooting on top of 6.8 rebounds, 5.5 assists, and 2.3 steals. He will be back in the NCAA Juniors for the upcoming season as he and LSGH try to go back-to-back. Whatever happens from there, the recruit from Butuan will then move up to play for the Green Archers, steadying a spot that will be left behind by then by Kib Montalbo and Andrei Caracut. “Ang madadala ko po siguro dun, yung puso ko pa rin po,” he said. When he finally plays for La Salle, he will be teaming up with Aljun Melecio and incoming Jordan Bartlett to form a still fiery backcourt. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

Know about illegal drugs and their ill-effects

WHAT’S WITH DRUGS that make the world so deeply concerned about people using them? In the Philippines alone, an estimated four to seven million of its 104 million populations are said to be using prohibited drugs. As a campaign promise, President Rodrigo Duterte has made the crackdown on illegal drugs a centerpiece of his administration — for which he has been chastised from all fronts, in and out of the country. Drug addiction, no doubt, has severely affected society, cutting across all socio-economic echelons and demographics. No one can deny that drug addiction is a societal menace, resulting in countless crimes, financial problems, and broken relationships, both with families and friends. Here’s a glimpse of what the common prohibited drugs are and how they affect the body and mind. According to a primer of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) posted on its website, drugs are chemical substances that affect the normal functioning of the body, either physically and/or psychologically. Not all drugs are illegal, it says. The caffeine in coffee, the nicotine in cigarettes, and alcohol are technically legal drugs. Medicines are pharmaceutical drugs used to treat or prevent illnesses. They are legal, although they could also be abused. The ones people should totally shun are the illegal drugs because they alter a person’s mood, thinking, and behavior. All illegal drugs have immediate physical effects, and they also hinder psychological and emotional development, especially among young people, says the UNODC. Drugs cloud a user’s judgment, making him/her take more risks, for instance having unsafe sex that could lead one to contract sexually transmitted diseases, including HIV/AIDS. The effects of illegal drugs do not last long. When they wear off, a user gets depressed, lonely and sick, appears confused, sweats a lot, has red eyes, and neglects his/her physical appearance and then comes the irrational craving. The following are the most common prohibited drugs and how they affect their users: Methamphetamine Methamphetamine, also known as Shabu, also goes by the names Crack meth, Ice, Crystal meth, Tik, and Yaba. Methamphetamine belongs to a group of drugs called amphetamine-type stimulants. Like ecstasy, it is manufactured in illegal laboratories and sold in powder, tablet or crystal form. It could be swallowed, sniffed, smoked or injected. The UNODC says meth produces a feeling of physical and mental well-being, euphoria, and exhilaration. Users experience a temporary boost in energy, often perceived to improve their performance of manual or mental tasks, along with delayed hunger and fatigue. At times, they become more aggressive and violent. Over the short term, users tend to lose their appetite, start to breathe faster, and sweat due to increased heart rate, blood pressure, and body temperature. Taking in large doses would make users feel restless and irritable and could induce panic attacks. Taking in excessive doses could result in convulsions, seizures, and death from respiratory failure, stroke or heart failure. Long-term use could also lead to malnutrition, weight loss, and psychological dependence and stopping its use results in a long period of sleep, followed by depression. Ecstasy Ecstasy goes around by the names E, Snackies and New Yorkers. The drug, usually made in illegal laboratories, consists of a range of substances that make it dangerous to consume. It comes in the form of tablet, powder or capsule and is usually swallowed, but could also be snorted or injected. Ecstasy increases users’ empathy levels and induces a feeling of closeness to people around them. It makes them feel more sociable and energetic. Short-term use of ecstasy prompts the body to ignore distress signals such as dehydration, dizziness, and exhaustion, and interferes with the body’s ability to regulate temperature. It could also severely damage the liver and kidneys and could cause convulsions and heart failure. In large doses, ecstasy could cause restlessness, anxiety and severe hallucinations. Long-term use damages certain parts of the brain, bringing about serious depression and memory loss. Cannabis Sativa Cannabis is known by many names – Bongo, Ganja, Grass, Pot or Thai sticks. Its most famous name, however, is Marijuana, or Mary Jane. Cannabis, a tobacco-like greenish or brownish substance made of dried flowering tops and leaves of the cannabis plant, is usually smoked, but its resin and oil could also be swallowed or brewed in tea. According to the UNODC, cannabis smoke contains 50 percent more tar than high-tar cigarettes, putting users at an increased risk of lung cancer and other respiratory diseases. After taking cannabis, users feel relaxed and sometimes euphoric, with an intensified sense of sight, smell, taste, and hearing. Short-term use makes them experience increased appetite and pulse rate, and an impaired ability to perform physical and mental tasks, such as driving a car and thinking logically. With large doses, users’ thinking slows down and they become confused and have bouts of anxiety, panic, and psychotic episodes. The UNODC said that regular users of cannabis run the risk of developing psychological dependence to the point that they lose interest in all other activities, such as work and personal relationships. Cocaine Cocaine is known as Crack, Bazooka, Blanche, Cake, Coke or Lady. It is a fine white or off-white powder extracted from the leaves of the coca plant. The UNODC said that on the street, cocaine is diluted with other substances, such as ammonia or sodium bicarbonate (baking soda), to increase its quantity and produce crack. Cocaine is usually sniffed or injected, while […].....»»

Gilas hopeful Remy Martin s dreams go beyond the basketball court

Any cager dreams of making it big in the NBA. Just ask Filipino-American point guard Remy Martin of the Arizona State University Sun Devils. But amid his success in the U.S., it's still true to Martin's nature to tap into his Pinoy roots. Aside from openly saying that he dreams of playing for Gilas Pilipinas, he's also manifesting his Pinoy upbringing through his goals. "Being raised in that Filipino household has stuck with me and made me the person I am today," Martin said via Craig Morgan in an interview for thesundevils.com.  "They care for you, they show you love and they are so supportive. That's what I want to be for others," Martin reflects. Now currently seeking further success in the U.S., Martin hopes to inspire Filipinos to reach for the stars, while keeping their roots firmly intact. "Every time I look at it, all I want to do is help the culture, let people know that there are Filipino basketball players that can play at this level and potentially do more," he said. More than basketball, however, Martin wants to give hope, empower Pinoy kids to dream bigger.  "Every time I step out on that court it's for them. It's for hope. I want to help the kids there be more motivated and see that there is another path." Born to Filipina Mary Ann Macaspac, Martin carved out a name for himself during his high school days at Sierra Canyon School in Chatsworth, California by possessing a certain drive and defensive focus not usually seen from younger prospects. Now in college, Martin says he wants his defense to be his calling card. At 5'11" his intensity on the less glamorous end of the court gives him an edge among his taller, more physically gifted peers. As he bares: "I try to capitalize on the little things like playing defense because it's mental and it's mostly heart." Heart. Sounds familiar, right? That's the undying phrase embedded in the Pinoy basketball psyche as the battle cry of Gilas Pilipinas. And it's his Puso -- and defense -- that's earning him praise from head coach and former Duke Blue Devil Bobby Hurley. "He's just got a great fire and passion and positive energy," Hurley said via thesundevils.com. "He likes to demoralize the opponent if he can; just wear him down into submission just because of how hard he's willing to play on defense and then create." And by working hard and being himself, Martin is slowly coming close to his goal. "Imagine being LeBron James here and having that kind of impact on kids," Martin said, "It's about knowing that they have somebody where they can say 'oh, look, we have him. We have somebody that has been through this' and they can follow that." He reportedly wants to visit the Philippines "within the next couple of years" but for now, he's doing his part in inspiring the next generation of Pinoy ballers. "Maybe I can pave the way for those kids to get some exposure. Why not? Why can't I do it? Because I'm small? OK, well, I'll be the first one then," he said.  H/T thesundevils.com.....»»
