Austria turns emotional after Beermen get win for his ailing wife

Despite winning to advance to yet another semifinal appearance, San Miguel head coach Leo Austria was not in his usual jolly mood Tuesday as he made his post-game press conference at the Mall of Asia Arena. No one can blame him though as he went to coach the Beermen while his wife is in the hospital. Mrs. Austria underwent kidney transplant Monday night. "First of all I want to praise God. I never had sleep last night because of my wife. She's been under... she undergone a kidney transplant," coach Leo said. "But thank you Lord, very successful operation for her, and I know she's watching right now," he added. Austria said that he received a call earlier from the doctor saying that his wife is now doing well. And the reigning three-time coach of the year made sure to send his appreciation to all those that helped his wife through this trying time. "This afternoon I was told by the doctor na everything is okay and now she's in the recovery room. Very successful, and thank you sa mga doctor, especially wife of Rommel Adducul, who helped us a lot, going to the kidney transplant," he said. "This afternoon I was told by the doctor na everything is okay and now she's in the recovery room. Very successful, and thank you sa mga doctor, especially wife of Rommel Adducul, who helped us a lot, going to the kidney transplant," Austria added. As the Beermen needed only one game to take down rival TNT to make it to the next round, Austria also made sure to express his gratitude to his team for always having his back. "Thank you San Miguel, especially my players, for giving me this win. Thank you," the Beermen. The Beermen made sure as well not to disappoint their champion coach. "Ginagawa namin siyang inspirasyon. Dahil hindi lang naman siya ang nalugar sa ganyang sitwasyon, pati ako dumaan na rin sa sitwasyon na yan," Arwind Santos said. If you recall, Arwind's mother collapsed during a San Miguel-TNT game back in 2015. She sadly passed away a year later. "Kailangan lang namin lakasan ang kalooban namin. Hindi naman kasi namin mako-control kung ano nangyayari sa mundo, sa atin. Kapag may nangyari, wala kang ibang choice kun'di magdasal na lang," he added. Ultimately, this win was for coach Leo and his family. "We really wanted to just play for him and his family. We know that he had a heavy heart and he hasn''t been getting much sleep. He's been with us at practice every day, hasn't complained about it, hasn't brought it up, hasn't mentioned it," guard Chris Ross said. "We really wanted to go out there and play hard and try to get that win for the Austria family," he added.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

Announce Your Baby’s Gender the Iya Villania and Kylie Jenner Way

Over the weekend, I asked one of my aunts if she already knew the gender of her third baby. She told me that her doctor still wasn't sure after checking twice within the seven months she's been pregnant. Good thing she isn't throwing a gender reveal party or it would've been a hassle if they got it wrong. On the plus side though, gender reveals can be exciting for the parents and their close friends and family. It's also interesting to see how creative they get when coming up with them. If you want to throw your own gender reveal party, take cues from these celebrities.

Nowitzki disgusted by report of hostile workplace for Mavs

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Dirk Nowitzki said Wednesday night (Thursday, PHL time) he was “disgusted” to read about allegations of inappropriate sexual conduct by former team president Terdema Ussery in a Sports Illustrated report that described a hostile workplace for women. The 20-year player who has spent his entire career with the Mavericks told reporters after the first post-All-Star break practice in Los Angeles that he was glad the franchise was addressing the situation by hiring outside counsel to investigate the allegations. “It’s very disappointing,” Nowitzki told The Dallas Morning News. “It’s heartbreaking. I’m glad it’s all coming out. I was disgusted when I read the article, obviously, as everybody was. I was shocked ... that our franchise, my franchise, that stuff like that was going on.” Ussery was accused of making sexually suggestive remarks to several women. He spent 18 years with the team before going to the sports apparel company Under Armour in 2015. Ussery, who was investigated by the team over similar claims in 1998, denied the allegations in a statement to SI. The report said team website reporter Earl Sneed was twice accused of domestic assault while working for the Mavericks, including a guilty plea in a case that was dismissed when he met the conditions of the agreement. The team said Sneed had been fired, and Mavericks owner Mark Cuban told SI that he fired human resources director Buddy Pittman after learning details of the magazine’s report. The Mavericks said Wednesday (Thursday, PHL time) they hired Evan Krutoy and Anne Milgram to lead the independent investigation. Krutoy served as a prosecutor at the Manhattan District Attorney’s office for over 20 years and served as Acting Deputy Bureau Chief of the Sex Crimes Unit. Milgram is a professor at New York University School of Law, and a former New Jersey attorney general. A day earlier, the NBA said the Mavericks had informed the league of the allegations involving Ussery and Sneed. The league said it would “closely monitor” the investigation. “Their findings are going to go directly to Mark Cuban and (Commissioner) Adam Silver, and the Mavericks will abide by whatever recommendations are made,” coach Rick Carlisle said after practice. “I can tell you that when it comes to anything involving the Mavericks, Mark Cuban is a strong believer in extreme ownership, extreme accountability.” SI contacted six female former Mavericks or American Airlines Center employees who claimed they left the sports sector because of a structure that left them feeling vulnerable and devalued while protecting powerful men who misbehaved. A male former department head said there was “built-in protection for a lot of men.” A woman who had recently been hired as a support staffer said Ussery made sexually suggestive remarks to her in the media dining room before a game during the 2010-11 season, when the Mavericks won their only NBA championship. The woman said she had been told by others to be wary of Ussery. “Obviously there’s a problem in the Mavericks organization and we’ve got to fix it,” Cuban told the magazine. “I’m embarrassed, to be honest with you, that it happened under my ownership, and it needs to be fixed.” Cuban declined comment to The Associated Press on Wednesday (Thursday, PHL time). Two women claimed Ussery harassed them for years, incidents that ranged from inappropriate remarks to requests for sex to touching women’s calves and thighs during meetings. Ussery had left Nike to join the Mavericks and had previously served as commissioner of the old Continental Basketball Association. He was praised by former NBA Commissioner David Stern and served as the Mavericks’ alternate governor with the league. “I am deeply disappointed that anonymous sources have made such outright false and inflammatory accusations against me,” Ussery said. “During my nearly 20-year tenure with the Mavericks, I am not aware of any sexual harassment complaints about me or any findings by the organization that I engaged in inappropriate conduct.” Ussery said he had raised concerns about other Mavericks employees who he said engaged in inappropriate sexual conduct and the organization didn’t address those concerns. “I believe these misleading claims about me are part of an attempt to shift blame for the failure to remove employees who created an uncomfortable and hostile work environment within the Mavericks organization,” Ussery said Cuban told the magazine that the team was establishing a hotline for counseling and support services for past and current employees. He is mandating sensitivity training for all employees, himself included......»»

Equal pay for female ‘Doctor Who’

English actress Jodie Whittaker, who will play the time-traveling alien hero in "Doctor Who," confirmed recently that she demanded the same salary as the previous main actor, Peter Capaldi. "I don't imagine you're going to meet a woman this evening who is unenthusiastic about the prospect of equal pay," Whittaker told reporters at the National Television Awards. "It's an incredibly important time, and [equal pay is] a notion that should be supported."

Woman seeks help for 5-year-old granddaughter under chemotherapy for leukemia

Kyla Alejandra Napay was always sick as a baby, prompting her parents to always leave her in the care of her maternal grandmother. At age 4, however, Kyla was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia. "I eventually ended up taking care of her. She grew up with me. I am practically her parent. So now, she is my responsibility. But I don't mind because she is my own granddaughter anyway," 50-year-old Analiza Garcia told the Inquirer. Kyla's parents have since separated and now have their own families.
