‘Vikings’ queen shrugs off exit rumors: I’m not going anywhere

  Canadian actress Katheryn Winnick had no idea that parts of the Philippines would be ideal tourist destinations, until her younger sister Daria told her about them. "She travels a lot, came here last year and she was like, 'You need to visit the islands! They're the most beautiful islands in the world,'" the "Vikings" star told the Inquirer on the first day of the recently concluded History Con. She was one of several celebrity guests of the three-day convention, which started last Friday at the World Trade Center. On Instagram, the actress posted photos of her visit to El Nido, Palawan, among other places, days before the event.

This is what Sister Patricia Fox would do if she meets Duterte

Given the chance to meet President Rodrigo Durterte, Sister Patricia Fox said she would bring the people closer to the chief executive, not to make an appeal on the deportation order against her. "Kung kakausapin ko ang Presidente, gusto ko kasama ko ang mga taga sector (If I were to talk to the President, I want my colleagues in the sector to be with me)," Fox said in an interview over Radyo Inquirer 990. The 71-year-old Australian nun insisted that her mission in the Philippines is to help the neglected sectors of the country and to build solidarity among the people.

Federer deflects attention to Nadal, Djokovic in Australia

By John Pye, Associated Press MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — Roger Federer prefers to think of Rafael Nadal or Novak Djokovic as the favorites for the Australian Open title, despite entering as defending champion and coming off a worry-free preparation. "I play down my chances just because I don't think a 36-year-old should be a favorite of a tournament," Federer said Sunday on the eve of the year's first Grand Slam tournament, "It should not be the case. "That's why I see things more relaxed, you know, at a later stage of my career." The 19-time major winner can afford to relax slightly longer, given the half of the draw that he shares with Djokovic doesn't start until day two. Top-ranked Nadal will get under way Monday night against Victor Estrella Burgos on Rod Laver Arena, where he lost the final in five sets to Federer last year. All four singles finalists were 30 or older here last year in what became a tournament for the ages, and three of them are back. Serena Williams beat her older sister Venus Williams in the final to capture an Open era-record 23rd major here last year but decided against defending her title because she didn't have enough time to recover from health issues after a complicated childbirth in September. Venus Williams is seeded fifth and is second match scheduled on center court to get her 77th major under way with a challenging opener against Belinda Bencic. She's 4-0 in career head-to-heads against 20-year-old Bencic — who reached a career-high No. 7 ranking in 2016 and who helped Federer win the Hopman Cup title for Switzerland earlier this month — but is coming off an abbreviated preparation that included a loss in the second round to eventual champion Angelique Kerber at the Sydney International last week. At 37, Venus Williams among the top contenders at Melbourne Park. Others in action on Monday include seventh-seeded Jelena Ostapenko, who meets Francesca Schiavone in a match featuring current vs. former French Open champions, No. 2-ranked Caroline Wozniacki, who opens against Mihaela Buzarnescu, and U.S. Open champion Sloane Stephens against Zhang Shuai. Simona Halep is the No. 1 seed in the women's draw, and one of six women who can hold the No. 1 ranking at the end of the Australian Open. Halep, who has had back-to-back first-round exits on her last two trips to Melbourne Park, opens on day two against Australian wild-card entry Destanee Aiava. Only two men can hold the top ranking in the first week of February — Nadal or Federer — regardless of what No. 3 Grigor Dimitrov or No. 4 Alexander Zverev or anybody else does in Melbourne. Federer returns in contrasting circumstances to his appearance in 2017, when he was coming off a six-month break for an injured left knee and had low expectations about ending a Grand Slam title drought that dated to Wimbledon in 2012. "This year I hope to win the first few rounds and get rolling hopefully, whereas last year I was just hoping to win," a match, Federer told his pre-tournament news conference Sunday. "It was more of a 'let's see what happens' kind of tournament, maybe similar to what Novak or Stan (Wawrinka) or others are going through this year." Six-time Australian Open winner Djokovic has been sidelined for six months with an injured right elbow, returning with a remodeled service motion, and 2014 champion Wawrinka has also been out of the game since Wimbledon after surgery on his knee. Nadal, who won the French and U.S. Open titles last year, has also had a limited preparation restricted to couple of exhibition matches last week as he recovers from a sore knee. None of that makes them any less of a threat to Federer. "Rafa, with the year that he's had, and Novak with the six titles he's had here, even if it's unknown how he's feeling, they could very well be the favorites, too," Federer said. "If you're in the draw, you give yourself a chance. That's what happened for me last year — all ended up way better than I thought it would, as you know.".....»»

A year into 'MeToo: How a hashtag changed the world

It's been exactly a year since the #MeToo movement became full-blown. While it was actually initiated as far back as 2006 by activist Tarana Burke, it had only gone viral last year, when actress Alyssa Milano tweeted out #MeToo as a hashtag, in light of the explosive sexual abuse allegations against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein. I don't think anyone can dismiss the gravity of this movement. It became the push for women to finally speak out and share the collective experiences they endured or have been enduring for years. Experiences they've normally been taught to keep as far away from the public eye as possible. Experiences they thought were theirs alone. The height of that mov...Keep on reading: A year into #MeToo: How a hashtag changed the world.....»»

Ateneo back on top of UAAP women s badminton after 5 years

Ateneo de Manila University capped a Cinderella run by annexing its fourth women's title - and the first in five years - with a 3-0 conquest of UP Friday at the Rizal Memorial Badminton Hall. Chanelle Lunod took 79 minutes to beat Poca Alcala, 21-19, 14-21, 21-16, in the first singles before the Lady Eagles got the needed buffer after Samantha Ramos rallied from a set down to dispose Jessie Francisco, 16-21, 21-17, 21-16, in the second singles. Lunod and Geva de Vera, who were later named co-tournament MVPs, dominated Leah Inlayo and Mary Ann Marañon, 21-13, 21-8, in the first doubles to seal the deal for Ateneo. In the Finals opener, the Lady Eagles stunned the Lady Maroons, 3-2. Before sweeping top-ranked UP, Ateneo overcame twice-to-beat NU in the Final Four to make it to the Finals after missing the bus last year. Prior to winning this one, the Lady Eagles last ruled in 2013 behind Rookie-MVP Jana de Vera, Geva's sister. Sarah Joy Barredo of the Lady Bulldogs was named top rookie......»»

Championship triple-header highlights Pinoy Pride 45 in November

Filipino boxing fans are in for a treat this November as ALA Promotions' Pinoy Pride returns with an exciting championship triple-header on deck for Pinoy Pride 45 in Cebu City.  Headlining the card will be a WBO Oriental Super Bantamweight Championship bout between defending champion Jeo "Santino" Santisima of Masbate and Mexican Victor Uriel “Yuca” Lopez. Regared as one of ALA Promotions’ fastest rising stars, the 22-year old Santisima (16-2, 14 KO) is unbeaten since 2014 and is riding a remarkable 14-fight winning streak. Santisima captured his first championship back in June of 2018 with a third-round TKO victory over Likit Chane to claim the WBO Oriental Super Bantamweight title. Looking to make Santisima’s title reign a short one is Mexico City’s Lopez (13-6-1, 6 KO), who’s won six of his last seven contests. The current reigning WBC Latino Super Bantamweight Interim Champion, Lopez is looking to add the WBO Oriental title to his list of accolades. Also on the card, the blonde-haired bomber himself, “Prince” Albert Pagara of Maasin, Southern Leyte will be making his return to the ring to defend his WBO Inter-Continental Super Bantamweight Championship against Ghanaian George Krampah. The hard-hitting Pagara (30-1, 21 KO) is working his way back up to the top of the super bantamweight ranks, and is currently on a solid four-fight winning streak. In his last outing, the 24-year old reclaimed the WBO Inter-Continental Super Bantamweight crown with a three-round destruction of Laryea Gabriel Odoi in his hometown of Maasin. Looking to avenge his fellow-Ghanaian is Krampah (14-3, 12 KO), who will be making his Philippine boxing debut. A former Ghanaian Featherweight Champion and WBO Africa Featherweight Championship contender, Krampah will try to bring the WBO Inter-Continental title back home to Accra. In a featured super flyweight contest, ALA Promotions star prospect Kevin Jake “KJ” Cataraja gets his first shot at a championship when he meets Mexican Victor Hugo “Scarface” Reyes for the vacant WBO World Youth Super Flyweight Championship. One of the most promising young talents on the ALA Promotions roster of boxers, the 23-year old Cataraja (8-0-0, 7 KO) has the potential to be one of the promotion’s most exciting young fighters. A proven knockout artist with seven of his eight wins coming via KO or TKO, the former Palarong Pambansa and amateur standout gets his first shot at a professional championship. Standing in Cataraja’s way is a fellow young stud in Tijuana’s Reyes (9-1-1, 7 KO). Possessing an almost-equally impressive KO ratio as his Filipino counterpart, Reyes has won his last two contests, and is also looking for his first taste of boxing gold. Pinoy Pride 45 will emanate from the IEC Convention Center in Cebu City on Saturday, November 24th. Catch the telecast on ABS-CBN channel 2 and ABS-CBN S+A channel 23! .....»»
