This is she: Keala Settle–remember the name

LOS ANGELES---Early this year, when we were on the New York set of Hugh Jackman's "The Greatest Showman," Keala Settle stunned us as The Bearded Woman belting "This Is Me." We wrote in June: "You heard it here first: We think Keala Settle ... will be a star when the film is released on Christmas Day this year. We watched footage of Keala singing 'This Is Me,' which we predict will be one of the musical's powerful showstoppers." Cut to the end of year. We saw the finished version of Michael Gracey's "The Greatest Showman" and recently watched Keala perform "This Is Me" live for the first time. Keala was just as powerfully moving as she was the first time we heard her croon Benj ...Keep on reading: This is she: Keala Settle–remember the name.....»»

Avenido receives first-ever ABL lifetime achievement award

Now heading into its eighth season, the Asean Basketball League has just given out its first lifetime achievement award. And there is no better recipient other than the player who has won a championship, won an MVP, and won the hearts of four different countries in the region. Leo Avenido was handed the first-ever ABL Lifetime Achievement Award on Tuesday at the Shangri-La at the Fort in Taguig City. “’Pag lifetime, ibig sabihin, parang matanda na talaga e no,” he joshed with reporters afterward. Turning serious, however, he said, “Siyempre, grateful ako sa ABL na nabigyan nila ako ng chance na (makuha itong award).” Avenido showcased his wares in the league for six seasons and won both the championship and the Local MVP plum with the San Miguel Beermen in 2012. “Siyempre, yung championship yung pinaka-memorable kasi kaya nga naglaro sa ABL, gusto kong makakuha ng championship. Hindi goal lang na para kumita, para mag-import, goal talaga yung championship,” he shared. He then continued, “Tapos nag-MVP pa ako. MVP tapos championship, grabe, ‘di ba?” He compiled 1, 627 total points, tops in all-time scoring, and saw action in 117 total games, fourth most in league history. Along with representing his country, the shifty guard also suited up and starred for Brunei’s Barracudas, Vietnam’s Saigon Heat, and Thailand’s Mono Vampire. And that experience, spreading the love for basketball across Southeast Asia, is another source of pride for Avenido. “Nag-mold talaga sa akin na siyempre, overseas kaya mahirap. Kaya talagang dapat makapag-focus nang maganda doon,” he said. He then continued, “Dahil doon, naging role model ka rin sa iba, naging inspiration na maglaro nang mabuti, magtrabaho lang nang mabuti, ganyan.” Still, the Lifetime Achievement Award isn’t the end of the road for the now 38-year-old – if he had his way. As he put it, “Siyempre, gusto ko pa rin maglaro kung papayagan. Pero kung hindi na, siguro ipa-pass ko na yung torch sa mga young guys.” Apparently, a new team, meaning a new country, is interested in the services of Avenido – whether it be player or mentor. “Ngayon, Indonesia, ita-try raw. Siyempre, marami ring nagta-tryout kaya sabi ko, subukan muna nila,” he shared. He then continued, “Baka bumagsak, assistant coach na lang. depende lang kung anong gusto nila.” If this pushes through, then the CLS Knights will be the only team in the league who can brag that they have a Lifetime Achievement Awardee with them. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

Padda mum on Adamson's collapse in battle for third series opener

Adamson University head coach Air Padda was a picture of disappointment, as she emerged from the locker room inside the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan shortly after the Lady Falcons’ straight sets beating Wednesday. She declined to comment on Adamson’s 23-25, 24-26, 14-25, loss to Arellano University in the best-of-three series opener of the Premier Volleyball League Collegiate Conference battle for third. “Not today,” said Padda, who was obviously upset with how her team performed against a squad they swept in the elimination round. It was the Lady Falcons’ third straight loss after dropping their last two matches in the best-of-three semifinals series against Far Eastern University including a sorry four-set defeat in Game 3, Monday. Adamson never got its usual aggressive game going and unraveled in the third frame after squandering a five-point lead, 15-20, in the second that proved to be the turning point of the match. It didn’t help that Padda sat out Adamson’s top scorer Eli Soyud, who took over the scoring role for the Lady Falcons after Jema Galanza was ruled out of the contest due to a dislocated right ankle in the team’s fourth game, in the second and third sets. Soyud, who averaged 19.6 points in the semis, scored only seven points. Asked for the reason why she was shut down by Padda early, the De La Salle University transferee just shrugged her shoulder and refused to grant an interview. Game 2 of the series is on Saturday. If needed, Game 3 is on Monday.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles        .....»»

Camp time! Warriors, Wolves prepare to open training camp

em>By Jon Krawczysnki, Associated Press /em> The Golden State Warriors were the last team standing when the NBA season closed in June. Thanks to a preseason trip to China, they are one of the first teams to get going this season as the league gets up and rolling again. The Warriors and Minnesota Timberwolves will hold their media days on Friday and open training camps Saturday, a few days ahead of the rest of the league as they prepare for an early October trip to China for games in Shanghai and Shenzhen as part of the league’s ongoing efforts to grow the game in the basketball-crazy nation. Golden State will be the headliner in China, just like it has been in the NBA for the last three seasons. And the Warriors open camp this season with a major advantage over everyone else that goes above and beyond the sheer talent the organization has assembled with Kevin Durant, Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green. While the rest of the league spent the entire summer scrambling to upgrade in a desperate attempt to enter Golden State’s stratosphere, the Warriors return almost the entire roster from the team that won its second championship in three seasons. In fact, Golden State should only be better this year because it will not have to spend part of the early season figuring out how to incorporate Durant’s game with three other All-Stars. Meanwhile, teams like the Rockets, Cavaliers, Thunder, Timberwolves and Celtics will need all of the preseason and then some to get on the same page with the new stars in town. There will be no such orientation process in Golden State. Free agents Nick Young and Omri Casspi will have to acclimate, but that is a lot easier to do when Durant and Curry are showing them around. ___ So as media days and training camps get up and running, here are a few things to watch at the outset: strong>HARD FEELINGS? /strong> It appeared that Durant was on his way to mending some fences in Oklahoma City after he left the organization to join Golden State last season. But the fence posts may have been torn down again when Durant disparaged the Thunder team and coach Billy Donovan as the biggest reasons he left to join the Warriors. Durant has since apologized , but the topic will likely come up again when he speaks to the media on Friday. And it should be interesting to see if Russell Westbrook has anything to say about it when the Thunder open early next week. strong>CP3 ARRIVES: /strong>The most intriguing roster experiment this year may be in Houston, where GM Daryl Morey is teaming James Harden with Chris Paul in a star-studded backcourt. Harden finished second in the MVP voting last season after moving from shooting guard to point guard and now will have to move back to accommodate Paul. Both players are used to having the ball in their hands and orchestrating the offense, so there will likely be some feeling-out that needs to be done in camp. The two have already appeared in a television commercial together, so they’re off to a running start. strong>KYRIE’S MOVE: /strong>The biggest headline in a wild offseason was Kyrie Irving’s request for a trade from the Cavaliers. He landed in Boston in a move that could define his legacy, the All-Star who didn’t want to play with LeBron James. Irving did little to shed light on his motives in an enigmatic interview with ESPN and likely will be bombarded with questions about it at media day. How the Celtics handle the early crush of attention and move past Irving’s exit from Cleveland could play a big role in their ability to truly challenge the Cavs in the Eastern Conference. strong>CRASH COURSE: /strong>The Timberwolves are one of the teams that made significant roster changes this summer after a disappointing 31-win season in Tom Thibodeau’s first year as coach. They added Jimmy Butler, Jeff Teague, Taj Gibson and Jamal Crawford while trading away Ricky Rubio in an offseason overhaul aimed at ending the league’s longest active playoff drought at 13 seasons. Thibodeau asked owner Glen Taylor to allow the team to hold training camp in San Diego before they head out to China to get them away from the distractions of home and allow them to bond in a preseason that only includes three games. That Butler and Gibson played for Thibodeau with the Bulls should help that transition, but it will no doubt be a process worth watching. strong>RULES CHANGES: /strong>When players start taking the court for exhibition games, it will offer an opportunity for them to start to adjust to rules changes and points of emphasis that are new every season. One notable difference this year will be the “James Harden rule,” a change in the way the game is called aimed at reducing the number of instances a player tricks a defender into fouling them and then goes into a shooting motion to try to earn free throw attempts. Harden is the master , though dozens of players do the same thing. .....»»
