After robbery, cops eyed for cash delivery of CCT

BAGUIO CITY---The robbery of at least P2.7 million for cash subsidy of the poor in Tinoc town, Ifugao province, prompted authorities to plan a more secure way of delivering the aid---through cash cards or by policemen.   The poor of Tinoc would have to wait some more, though.   The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) is working on the distribution of cash cards to conditional cash transfer (CCT) beneficiaries in Cordillera provinces following the robbery of the money meant for at least 1,269 beneficiaries in Tinoc.   Janet Armas, DSWD Cordillera director, said while the cash card system was being worked out, police could be tasked with del...Keep on reading: After robbery, cops eyed for cash delivery of CCT.....»»

Chelsea tops Arsenal in EPL thriller, Kane ends August curse

By Steve Douglas, Associated Press Chelsea and Arsenal served up a feast of goals in a thrilling London derby in the Premier League. Across the capital, Harry Kane was happy with just the one goal to end his August hoodoo in England's top division. Chelsea scored twice in the opening 20 minutes, conceded twice before halftime and had a late winner through Marcos Alonso in a 3-2 victory over Arsenal at Stamford Bridge on Saturday. In a game between teams with newly hired managers, Maurizio Sarri will be delighted with the attacking spark his Chelsea team has shown in the opening two games of the Premier League. It also scored three times in a win against Huddersfield last week. But it's two straight losses for Arsenal manager Unai Emery, whose side is showing the same defensive frailties as it did in the final seasons of predecessor Arsene Wenger's 22-year reign. After 15 games and more than 1,000 minutes, Kane finally scored a top-flight goal in August to seal Tottenham's 3-1 win over Fulham at Wembley Stadium. Spurs have also won their first two games after an offseason when they didn't buy a single player. ___ SARRI-BALL Sarri arrived at Chelsea promising to bring some fun after a difficult end to the tenure of previous manager, Antonio Conte. He is doing just that. Leaving gaps at the back but attacking in waves, Chelsea has been a thrill to watch in the opening two weekends — much different to the often cagey approach of fellow Italian Conte. Pedro Rodriguez and Alvaro Morata exploited Arsenal's high line to put Chelsea 2-0 up against Arsenal, which wasted a string of great chances at the other end before scoring twice in a five-minute span through Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Alex Iwobi. Alonso swept in a cut-back from substitute Eden Hazard for the winner. KANE CURSE OVER Kane was fully aware of his August woes — he made reference to it in a Twitter post last season after scoring in his first game in September — and the England international failed to score in the 2-1 win at Newcastle last week in Tottenham's opening game. With only one more game left this August, at Manchester United, it looked like the curse might continue after Kane volleyed a shot against the post in the 71st minute against Fulham. His goal came six minutes later when he took a pass from Erik Lamela on the left of the penalty area, cut inside, and bent a low shot into the corner. Brazilian winger Lucas Moura and Kieran Trippier, off a shot from a free kick, had already scored for Tottenham, with Aleksandar Mitrovic making it 1-1 for Fulham just after halftime while sitting on the ground. ___ VARDY RED CARD Jamie Vardy was sent off on his first start of the season for Leicester but the team still eased early-season pressure on manager Claude Puel with a 2-0 victory over newly promoted Wolverhampton Wanderers. The England striker was handed a straight red card for a strong tackle on Wolves right back Matt Doherty, who had earlier scored an own-goal to give Leicester the lead. Leicester doubled the lead through James Maddison, leaving Wolves without a win so far. RAMPANT RICHARLISON Paying up to $65 million for a 21-year-old Brazilian with one inconsistent season in the Premier League behind him seemed a gamble by Everton. Two games in, however, and Richarlison is looking a bargain. He scored his third goal of the season to help Everton beat Southampton 2-1 for its first win of the season. Richarlison netted twice against Wolves on the opening weekend. Theo Walcott set up Richarlison for his headed goal and also scored himself for Everton at Goodison Park. Offseason signing Danny Ings pulled a goal back for Southampton. OTHER GAMES An offseason of heavy spending and the recruitment of Premier League-winning manager Manuel Pellegrini hasn't done much to improve West Ham's fortunes. The London club lost for the second straight game, beaten 2-1 by Bournemouth after taking the lead through Marko Arnautovic's penalty. Callum Wilson, after a mazy dribble, and Steve Cook replied for Bournemouth, which has maximum points after defeating promoted side Cardiff last week. Kenedy missed an injury-time penalty for Newcastle in a 0-0 draw at Cardiff in the other game Saturday......»»

UAAP: Nabalan named 1-on-1 queen

Ria Nabalan of National University was named the first-ever UAAP Season 81 Last One Standing 1-on-1 Hoops Challenge women's division champion Friday inside the Mall of Asia Arena. The Lady Bulldog beat Adamson's Nathalia Prado, 8-6, in the Final. Nabalan came back from a 4-5 deficit with back-to-back treys for an 8-5 lead. Prado scored a basket to close the gap but the Lady Falcon bricked her last two attempts. Prado advanced to the Final after a hard-fought sudden death, 9-8, win over Jhazmin Joson of Ateneo de Manila University. The match was tied after the five-minute regulation. Prado took the win by scoring the first basket in the sudden death. Nabalon took the other championship seat with a 10-8 win over Cristine Cortizano of University of the East. Prado secured a spot in the semis with a 2-1 card in Pool A, winning over De La Salle U's Rossini Espinas, 4-3 and Elondra Rivera of University of Sto. Tomas, 5-3. Prado's lone elims loss came at the hands of Nabalan, 4-5. Nabalan also finished the elims with a 2-1 mark. She defeated Prado and Espinas, 8-6, to bounce back from an opening game 6-8 loss to Rivera. Joson swept Pool B with victories over University of the Philippines' Noella Cruz, 7-4, University of the East's Cristine Cortizano, 7-5, and Far Eastern U's Princess Jumuad, 8-5. Cortizano secured the last semis seat after earning superior quotient over Cruz and Jumuad, who were locked in a three-way logjam at 1-2 cards. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles .....»»

UAAP Season 81: Jordan bests Kobe

Jordan Bartlett used his speed and quickness to pull off an upset over taller but obviously tired Kobe Paras of University of the Philippines to rule the UAAP Season 81  Last Man Standing 1-on-1 Hoops Challenge.  The 5-foot-11 De La Salle University guard, who is serving his one-year residency, beat the exhausted 6-foot-6 Paras, 11-8, in the Final inside the Mall of Asia Friday. Bartlett's explosiveness was too much for Paras, who before the championship participated and won the slamdunk contest, to handle.  "That's how I play, I play fast," said Bartlett. "That's my niche is, my quickness. So regardless if he was tired or not that's how I'm gonna play anyway." Paras finished off Robert Minerva of National University, 11-9, in the Final Four. The UP cager was supposed to face University of Sto. Tomas' Brent Paraiso in the semis but the Tiger retired after suffering cramps. Bartlett outplayed Ateneo de Manila University's Quinito Banzon, 5-4, in the other semis pairing.  Paras topped the elimination round after completing a sweep of Pool A. The incoming Maroon outlasted University of the East's Jason Strait, 9-8, crushed Quinito Benson before taking a win by default over Adamson's Ivan Maata, who skipped his last assignment because of an injury following his participation in the slam dunk contest. Bartlett ruled Pool B with wins over Far Eastern University's Cade Flores, 7-4, Robert Minerva of National University, 7-5, and University of Sto. Tomas' Brent Paraiso, 9-3. Banzon advanced in the semis with a 2-1 record beating Maata, 6-3, and Strait, 5-4. Paraiso secured Pool B's other Final Four spot with a 1-2 card and a higher quotient over NU and FEU, who both also tallied 1-2 marks. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles  .....»»

Federer wins, Serena loses in Cincy tourney

MASON, Ohio (AP) — Roger Federer made a successful return to the Western & Southern Open on Tuesday. The day wasn't so great for Serena Williams. Federer advanced to the third round with a 6-4, 6-4 victory against Peter Gojowczyk, and Williams was eliminated by eighth-seeded Petra Kvitova in a 6-3, 2-6, 6-3 second-round loss. Federer and Williams were making their first appearance at the tournament since they each won the title in 2015. Williams opened with a straight-set victory against Daria Gavrilova. After a first-round bye, Federer extended his Cincinnati winning streak to 11 matches since losing to Rafael Nadal in the 2013 quarterfinals. "It doesn't feel like I have been away for so long here from Cincinnati," Federer said. "I guess the wheel keeps turning. It's not like I missed two years of tennis. It was a great pleasure to be back." The second-seeded Federer, refreshed from a month off after losing in the Wimbledon quarterfinals, became the tournament favorite when Nadal withdrew on Sunday night. Williams also was knocked out in her last tournament at San Jose two weeks ago after reaching the Wimbledon final. Cincinnati was her fifth tournament since she had a baby last September. She has dealt with blood clots and recently said she has been struggling with postpartum emotions. "You know, this is a long comeback," she said. "I just began. I just started — definitely at the very, very beginning. I'm getting there, and I'm going to just continue to work hard, and hopefully, I'll start winning more matches." Karolina Pliskova and Nick Kyrgios also advanced Tuesday in early tournament action. Pliskova moved into the second round by snapping a seven-match losing streak against Agnieszka Radwanska with a 6-3, 6-3 win. "It means a lot because it was against her, and, like, you know, I never beat her," Pliskova said. "We played so many times. I think I always played her at her best level the matches before, so it was always tough." Kyrgios, a finalist last year in Cincinnati, overcame physical problems to fight off qualifier Denis Kudla for a 6-7 (2), 7-5, 7-6 (9) victory. "This year has been tough," Kyrgios said. "I started the year very well. Then, obviously, I hurt my elbow. Then I had an ongoing hip injury. We have been definitely thinking about the options with my hip. You know, there is only so much you can do before you have to, you know, I guess, get surgery or something like that. You know, right now I'm just managing it." No. 11 seed David Goffin advanced with a 7-5, 6-3 win over Stefanos Tsitsipas, and Leonardo Mayer became the first player to reach the third round on the men's side with a 7-6 (7), 6-4 victory over 16th-seeded Lucas Pouille. Denis Shapovalov also reached the third round with an upset, knocking off 14th-seeded Kyle Edmund, 6-4, 7-5. Australian Open semifinalist Hyeon Chung won the last five games to beat Jack Sock 2-6, 6-1, 6-2. Sock has lost eight straight matches since winning in Rome on May 13. Two-time Cincinnati semifinalist Milos Raonic advanced with a 6-3, 6-3 win over qualifier Dusan Lajovic. Robin Haase also made it to the second round, defeating Filip Krajinovic 4-6, 6-2, 6-3. Fifth-seeded Elina Svitolina was tested by wild card Svetlana Kuznetsova before reaching the third round with a gritty 7-6 (1), 4-6, 6-4 win. Sixth-seeded Caroline Garcia also reached the third round with a 6-4, 6-5 win over wild card Victoria Azarenka, but 12th-seeded Daria Kasatkina suffered a first-round upset at the hands of qualifier Petra Martic, 4-6, 6-4, 6-3. Elise Mertens scored a 6-4, 6-2 first-round win over Magdalena Rybarikova. Ashleigh Barty stopped wild card Marketa Vondrousova 6-3, 7-5. Maria Sakkari upset Indian Wells champion Naomi Osaka 6-3, 7-6 (8). Ekaterina Makarova cruised past qualifier Ana Bogdan 6-3, 6-2......»»

PVL: Green Spikers score upset win over Bulldogs

De La Salle University weathered Bryan Bagunas' scorching scoring display to complete a morale-boosting upset win over National University in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Collegiate Conference. The Green Spikers handed the Bulldogs their first loss that snapped NU's five-game romp with a four-set, 27-25, 27-25, 17-25, 25-17, victory Wednesday at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. The trio of Cris Dumago, Geraint Bacon and John David Inocentes led the way for the Taft-based squad's second win in six games that kept DLSU in contention for a Final Four berth. Dumago pounded 15 attacks in his 17-point performance while adding 20 excellent receptions and four digs for the Green Spikers, who snagged the win despite allowing Bagunas to explode with 30 points. Bacon had 15 markers while Inocentes contributed 11 points for DLSU. NU, which gave away 33 points off errors, slid to 5-1 record. Meanwhile, Far Eastern University added more woes to an already eliminated Arellano University, 22-25, 25-20, 25-16, 25-20, while University of the Philippines made short work of College of St. Benilde, 25-21, 25-20, 25-23. The Tamaraws evened their record to 3-3 with four players scoring in double figures led by JP Bugaoan’s 18 points. Mark Calado added 13 while skipper Redijohn Paler and Peter Quie added 11 each for FEU, which sent the Chiefs reeling to their sixth straight defeat. John Millete spearheaded the Fighting Maroons with 17 points while Jerry San Pedro had 10 as UP tie Adamson University at 4-2 card.
