WHEN members of the public want to see artworks by National Artists Fernando Amorsolo or Benedicto “BenCab” Cabrera or Jose Joya, they have to go to a museum or art gallery to do so.

Why collectors should let go, according to Ambeth

How do collectors, especially those of priceless art, let go? The more accurate question is---can they, do they ever? In fact, many don't; they merely allow death or penury to decide, whichever comes first. That's for priceless art. (When it comes to priceless bags, in my neck of the woods, I've seen some girl friends who find their bag collection more irresistible than men. But that's another story.) It would be interesting to know the answer. Therefore, the morning (as in 10 on a Sunday!) talk of Inquirer columnist and cool historian Ambeth Ocampo on art collectors---their responsibility and legacy---was too irresistible to pass up. This was on the last day of the much-tal...Keep on reading: Why collectors should let go, according to Ambeth.....»»

Perez makes sure Jawbreakers stop three-game slide

Zark’s Burger-Lyceum of the Philippines University finally put an end to its three-game slump, holding off Go for Gold 108-94 in the 2018 PBA D-League Aspirants’ Cup on Monday at the JCSGO Gym in Quezon City. CJ Perez poured 23 points, seven rebounds, four assists, and two steals to spearhead the Jawbreakers while Cameroonian Mike Nzeusseu tallied a double-double in the tune of his 21 markers, 11 boards, and three dimes. MJ Ayaay contributed 16 points, six rebounds, and six assists while Jaycee Marcelino added 15 markers, six of which coming in the fourth quarter where Zark’s-LPU put down Go for Gold for good. The Jawbreakers lost hold of a 27-point lead, 81-54, with 3:04 remaining in the third quarter before Matt Salem waxed hot for the Scratchers, helping his side cut the lead down to eight, 83-91, at the 5:35 mark of the fourth. But that was when twins Jaycee and Jayvee Marcelino went to work, scoring six straight points to give Zark’s-LPU a 14-point lead, 97-83, before Ayaay put on the finishing touches late. “Nawala yung joy sa laro namin,” said coach Topex Robinson as the Jawbreakers remain alive for playoff contention at 5-4. “Joy means that you'll make mistakes and learn from those mistakes. I just let them play today.” “Again, we're happy that we got back in our winning ways. We just have to play our game, nothing is gonna change. What’s important is we learn from our mistakes and try to get better all the time.” Salem uncorked 24 points powered by six triples while also grabbing six rebounds and Yankie Haruna just missed out on a double-double with his 22 markers and nine rebounds. Go for Gold bowed for the third straight time and dropped to a 4-6 card. BOX SCORES ZARK’S BURGER-LPU 108 — Perez 23, Nzeusseu 21, Ayaay 16, Jc. Marcelino 15, Pretta 9, Jv.

US students stage massive walkout to protest gun violence

      They bowed their heads in honor of the dead. They carried signs with messages like "Never again" and "Am I next?" They railed against the National Rifle Association and the politicians who support it. And over and over, they repeated the message: Enough is enough. In a wave of protests one historian called the largest of its kind in American history, tens of thousands of students walked out of their classrooms Wednesday to demand action on gun violence and school safety. The demonstrations extended from Maine to Hawaii as students joined the youth-led surge of activism set off by the Feb. 14 massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Pa...Keep on reading: US students stage massive walkout to protest gun violence.....»»

Marcio Lassiter, San Miguel steal semis Game 2 from Ginebra

Just like head coach Time Cone said, Ginebra indeed played better in Game 2 of the semifinals in the 2018 PBA Philippine Cup. It still wasn’t enough as June Mar Fajardo, Arwind Santos, and Marcio Lassiter had all the answers from San Miguel in a gutsy 104-102 come-from-behind win in overtime on Sunday at the Araneta Coliseum. Behind the inspired play of Prince Caperal, the Gin Kings got off to a blazing start, using a 14-4 burst to turn a four-point cushion late in the first into a 42-29 edge in the second. They kept giving their faithful many more reasons to cheer as their advantage blew up to as much as 15 in the third. Caperal’s short stab put up the crowd favorites up by nine inside the last five minutes until Fajardo’s free throws and Santos’ big-time three willed the Beermen into tying the tally at 95-all with 13.4 ticks to go in regulation. Joe Devance missed his layup to send the game into overtime and there, Caperal’s short stab fronted a 7-3 run for a 102-98 advantage with 61 seconds remaining. It was at that point that Lassiter was just always at the right place at the right time and got two free throws, an inside basket, and a lucky tip-in that proved to be the game-winner. "I think yung panalo namin is tsamba. We thought from the start na we're losing this game, but maybe because of the pride and the experience of the team, they didn't want to lose because they know the importance of this game," head coach Leo Austria said. Ginebra still had three seconds to make something happen, but Scottie Thompson lost control of the ball to preserve the win and the 2-0 series lead for San Miguel. Lassiter wound up with 25 points, six coming in the last 53 seconds, on top of eight rebounds, four assists, and three steals. Fajardo was brilliant all throughout with a 33-point, 19-rebound double-double. The win wouldn't have been possible, however, if not for Santos' fearless triple, part of his 11 points, 10 rebounds, and five assists. "If not for Arwind, this could have been 1-1 na e," Austria said Alex Cabagnot and Chris Ross also added 11 points apiece to help the Beermen win the first two games of the race-to-four semifinals series. Japeth Aguilar paced the Gin Kings with 28 points and was backstopped by Caperal's career-high 26 markers.

Beermen handily beat Ginebra to take early series lead

In a rare occurrence, June Mar Fajardo played a pedestrian game despite having meaningful minutes. And yet, San Miguel still won convincingly. The three-time defending champion Beermen smashed Brgy. Ginebra, 102-90, Friday at the Big Dome, kicking off the 2018 PBA Philippine Cup semifinals in strong fashion. San Miguel took an early 1-0 lead in the best-of-7 series with the win. "I think in a series, it's very important to win your first game," head coach Leo Austria said. "But we cannot rest on our laurels. Because we know Ginebra is playing well before this game, it might be na pagod lang siguro sila dahil this is their fourth game in 8 days," he added. The Beermen sure pounded on the weary Gin Kings, leading by as many as 19 points, 64-45, in the second half. Arwind Santos led the way for the champs, scoring 23 points and 8 rebounds while Von Pessumal came off the bench to drop a career-high 18 points. Fajardo only had nine points in 30 minutes for the Beermen. For the Gin Kings, Sol Mercado, Scottie Thompson, and Japeth Aguilar all scored 17 points but it wasn't enough for the win. Game 2 wil be on Sunday still at the Big Dome.   The Scores: SAN MIGUEL 102 — Santos 23, Pessumal 18, Lassiter 17, Cabagnot 15, Fajardo 9, Ganuelas-Rosser 8, Ross 6, Heruela 4, Espinas 2, De Ocampo 0, Semerad 0.

June Mar s 35 points tow Beermen to another semis appearance

San Miguel's pair of Most Valuable Players went to work against TNT. June Mar Fajardo and Arwind Santos teamed up in the fourth quarter to stop the KaTropa, 106-93, in the 2018 PBA Philippine Cup quarterfinals Tuesday at the MOA Arena. With no. 8 TNT looking to steal one over the top-seeded Beermen, Fajardo and Santos put up a strong fourth-quarter perfomance, combining for 16 of San Miguel's 29 points, and the three-time defending champions advanced to yet another semis appearance. The Beermen will now wait for the winner of the Ginebra-ROS series in the next round. It was an emotional win for the team as head coach Leo Austria's wife went through a kidney transplant. Coach Leo's wife is doing well now, fortunately. "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 but thank you Lord, very successful operation for her, and I know she's watching right now," Austria said. "We followed our game plan to the letter, and that's the result. Thank you San Miguel, especially my player, for giving this win. Thank you," he added. While the Beermen were in control all game long, the KaTropa fought to the end and the champs didn't pull away until the final two minutes. Fajardo was simply unstoppable, making all but four of his 19 shots to finish with 35 points and 11 rebounds. Marcio Lassister added 20 for the Beermen while Santos scored 10 of his 15 points in the fourth before getting ejected after two technical fouls. Arwind also had seven rebounds, four assists, four blocks, and four steals. For the KaTropa, their All-Filipino campaign ended at the hands of the Beermen yet again. Five players finished in double figures for TNT lead by Jayson Castro and Troy Rosario with 19 points apiece. RR Pogoy and Anthony Semerad dropped 17 and 16 points respectively while Kelly Williams was good for 15.   The Scores: SAN MIGUEL 106 — Fajardo 35, Lassiter 20, Santos 15, Ross 13, Cabagnot 8, Heruela 5, Ganuelas-Rosser 4, De Ocampo 3, Pessumal 2, Espinas 1.

Haruna tows Go for Gold past Batangas-EAC

Go for Gold got it all together late to turn back Batangas-Emilio Aguinaldo College, 106-95 to gain back-to-back wins in the 2018 PBA D-League Aspirants’ Cup on Thursday in Pasig's Ynares Arena. Yankie Haruna recorded his best game to date, leading the Scratchers with 23 points, five rebounds, three assists, and three steals while ex-pro Jerwin Gaco unfurled a double-double to the tune of 21 markers and 10 boards as the two were major contributors in the team’s 60 bench points. Justin Gutang registered 15 points, nine coming in the final frame and hauled down 10 rebounds while J-Jay Alejandro had 13 markers and five assists in the win. Winners of back-to-back games, Go for Gold improved to 4-3 to join Zark’s Burger-Lyceum of the Philippines University at joint seventh place. But coach Charles Tiu is far from satisfied especially with how he felt his wards performed against a cellar-dwelling squad like Batangas-EAC. “We have a tendency to think that we're better than we really are,” he said. “We have never proven anything in the NCAA or D-League. It's disappointing in that sense, but we're happy with the win. We battled back despite Batangas controlling the game for the most part.” Holding a 94-87 lead with 4:04 remaining, the Scratchers saw their lead dwindle down to three, 94-91, after back-to-back buckets from Cedric Ablaza and Earvin Mendoza with 2:47 left. But Alejandro and Gutang saved the day for Go for Gold, canning big baskets in the end game to close the deal out for their crew. Ablaza led his side with 21 points, 12 rebounds, and six assists while Cedric de Joya got 18 markers for Batangas-EAC, which fell to 1-6.   BOX SCORES GO FOR GOLD 106 — Haruna 23, Gaco 21, Gutang 15, Alejandro 13, Leutcheu 8, Casiño 7, Dixon 7, Naboa 6, Salem 3, Domingo 2, Pasturan 1, Ocampo 0, Young 0.

ROS stops champion San Miguel to make next round

Rain or Shine is through the the next round of the 2018 PBA Philippine Cup. The Elasto Painters pulled away late over the three-time defending champion San Miguel Beer, scoring a 95-80 decision Wednesday at the MOA Arena. ROS got its sixth win against four defeats to make the quarterfinals for a fourth straight conference. The Elasto Painters wrap up their schedule Friday to determine their final placing. For San Miguel, the loss didn't do much as the champs were going to be number one in the playoffs either way. The Beermen tie Magnolia with the best record at 8-3 but the flagship SMC franchise hold the tiebreaker. "At least now we're assured of a playoff spot," head coach Caloy Garcia said. "But of course what we want to achieve is to win our game on Friday for us to be at least in the numer four. And of course, we play Ginebra that needs to win so that's gonna be a good battle for us kasi pangit naman papasok ka sa next round galing talo," he added. ROS exploded on the Beermen in the latter half of the fourth quarter, scoring eight unanswered points to turn a six-point lead into a 14-point advantage. Beau Belga was at the front of the Elasto Painters' attack, scoring a game-high 19 points. Jewel Ponferada was a surprise spark, firing 17 markers. Mark Borboran and Gabe Norwood chipped in 11 and 10 points respectively. For the Beermen, it was June Mar Fajardo that led the way with 19 points.   The Scores:  Rain or Shine (95) - Belga 19, Ponferada 17, Borboran 11, Norwood 10, Trollano 8, Daquioag 8,  Nambatac 6, Ahanmisi 5, King 3, Washington 3, Almazan 3, Maiquez 2, King 0.

Revellers get back-to-back wins at expense of Scratchers

Che-Lu Bar and Grill-San Sebastian College-Recoletos whipped Go for Gold, 87-65 to gain its first back-to-back victories in the 2018 PBA D-League Aspirants’ Cup on Tuesday at the Marikina Sports Center. Michael Calisaan was once again the rock for the Revellers, tallying a double-double to the tune of his 13 points and 10 rebounds as they moved up to fifth place at 4-3. Allyn Bulanadi led the squad in scoring with 15 markers and three boards while Samboy de Leon shot 3-of-4 from threes to garner 14. “Mas prepared kami ngayon,” remarked coach Stevenson Tiu. “Yun ang sabi ko sa mga bata, na we try to make a statement in this game para yung momentum, madala namin sa mga susunod naming laro.” Che’Lu-San Sebastian didn’t waste time asserting control of the game, taking a 15-2 start before keeping Go for Gold at bay all game long, en route to grabbing a 27-point lead, 87-60 late. It also helped that the Scratchers continued to waste their opportunities, turning the ball over 25 times which led to 33 points for the Revellers.
