Carpio warns against PH accepting China’s ‘goodwill’ line

  The Philippines may lose its legal right to Panatag Shoal if it accepts China's line that it allows Filipinos to fish there "out of goodwill," acting Chief Justice Antonio Carpio said on Thursday.   Speaking in an interview on CNN Philippines, Carpio said China's goodwill was "immaterial," as the UN-backed Permanent Court of Arbitration in The Hague ruled in 2016 that Panatag Shoal --- known internationally as Scarborough Shoal --- was a common fishing ground for the Philippines, China and Vietnam.   Commenting on a controversy involving Filipino fishermen and Chinese coast guards, Geng Shuang, spokesperson for China's foreign ministry, earlier told re...Keep on reading: Carpio warns against PH accepting China’s ‘goodwill’ line.....»»

ABL: McKinney beats out fellow Filipinos Standhardinger, Brickman for Asean Heritage MVP

STA. ROSA, LAGUNA - Three Filipinos were vying for the recognition as top Heritage Import in the 2017-2018 Asean Basketball League. In the end, it’s Filipino-American Mikh Mckinney taking home the trophy presented right before Game 2 of the Finals on Wednesday at the Sta. Rosa Multi-Purpose Complex, besting Filipino-German Christian Standhardinger and Fil-Am Jason Brickman. With per game counts of 22.2 points, 5.8 assists, 5.6 rebounds, and 2.2 steals, Mckinney was a key cog for China’s Chong Son, a first-year team that claimed the top-seed in the playoffs. He and Anthony Tucker combined to form an awesome twosome that propelled upstart Kung Fu to the very top of the standings. Mckinney’s year-long brilliance was more than enough to hold off Standhardinger’s blazing hot start for Hong Kong and Brickman’s steady steering of Mono of Thailand. Chong Son also has even more reason to celebrate as Tucker won World MVP while Charles Dube-brais won Coach of the Year. Tucker’s stuffed stat line of 22.7 points, 8.3 rebounds, 7.8 assists, and 1.6 steals made him the undisputed top non-Southeast Asian player. Dube-brais, meanwhile, guided a rookie squad into contention......»»

Will Alab Pilipinas be rooting for Hong Kong against China’s Chong Son?

Taking care of their own business last Sunday, Alab Pilipinas just need one more thing to happen to claim the two-seed in the 2017-2018 Asean Basketball League. In the elimination round-ending matchup between China’s Chong Son and Hong Kong, both 14-5, on Wednesday, the Filipinos are hoping for a win by the latter. An Eastern win would give them the one-seed, give the Filipinos the two-seed, and give Kung Fu the three-seed. A Chong Son win, on the other hand, would give them the one-seed, give Hong Kong the two-seed, and give the Philippines the three-seed. And so, Alab will have to root for the team which had swept them in the eliminations – if they want the second spot and the automatic advance into the semifinals it entails. “I hope we get the number two spot so we can rest a little bit and maka-recover sina [Renaldo] Balkman and Josh [Urbiztondo] going to the playoffs,” Pao Javelona said. He then continued, “As coach Jimmy [Alapag] said, we need everyone going to the playoffs.” In their head-to-head matchups thus far, Kung Fu owns a 2-1 edge over Eastern. Whatever happens, however, the Filipinos remain confident they can take on any opponent across them. “Kampi tayo sa Hong Kong sa Wednesday, pero either way, we’re good. Ang importante, we’re playing well,” assistant coach Mcc Cuan said. Ray Parks Jr. could only agree. “We’ll be ready for whichever outcome. Let God’s plan prevail,” he said. Indeed, with a 38-point win to end the elims and with players like Pao Javelona and Pamboy Raymundo ready and raring to step up, Alab will be a force to reckon with for any among Chong Son, Hong Kong, Thailand’s Mono, Singapore, or Vietnam’s Saigon. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

ONE: With title responsibilities, Geje Eustaquio’s pursuit for further learning has been put on hold

For Team Lakay flyweight star and reigning interim ONE Flyweight champion Geje Eustaquio, life is a continuous learning process. Already the holder of a Master’s Degree in Physical Education, the Baguio native admitted that he’s looking to even further expand his range of learning by either taking law or going for a Doctor’s Degree. The former teacher however admitted, that being an interim champion in Asia’s biggest mixed martial arts promotion is pretty time consuming, thus likely putting his schooling on hold. “It’s gonna be between a doctor’s degree or a law degree. We will see, I cannot say for now, most especially when you’re holding an interim belt, the responsibility is a bit harder.” Eustaquio said. “Kung before I train two, three rounds, now I train four, five, six rounds. It’s kinda tough. It’s on hold for now.” Saturday night at the Studio City Events Center in Macau, China, Eustaquio has the chance to elevate his world title status from interim to undisputed when he challenges reigning ONE Flyweight World Champion Adriano Moraes in a title unification bout. If Eustaquio pulls it off, he will carry the responsibility of being a world champion, and will have a target on his back. This could very well push his academic aspirations back even further. “Actually mas mahirap mag-isip na naman if I become the undisputed champion, because once again, sabi nga ni Spiderman, with great power comes great responsibility, so I have to maintain that belt and train more to maintain that belt.” But for someone who already has a Master’s Degree and is an accomplished mixed martial artist, what’s the motivation behind wanting to go back to school? For Geje, it’s pretty simple. “Life is learning.” “It doesn’t mean that when you have a degree, it’s so you can work, or you can have a better job. It’s about learning. When I have my doctor’s degree, it’s a long run of learning. When I have my law degree, it’s also a learning. For me, I treat as, everyday I learn, that’s why I go into this.” Eustaquio added.   Geje Eustaquio and Adriano Moraes battle of the undisputed ONE Championship Flyweight World Title at ONE: Pinnacle of Power, Saturday, June 23rd at the Studio City Events Center in Macau, China.  Catch it LIVE starting at 11:00 PM on ABS-CBN S+A channel 23! .....»»

Kim meets Xi in Beijing after Singapore summit

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un met Chinese President Xi Jinping in Beijing yesterday, a visit seen by some as an effort to put China at ease over North Korea's ties with the US after the two countries held a historic summit just a week ago. As the visit is taking place in the midst of a major trade row between China and the US that is threatening to turn into a full-fledged trade war, some analysts think the Chinese could be taking this opportunity to let the United States see that its trade actions could affect other areas of its bilateral relationship with China. Mr Kim's two-day visit that began yesterday was reported on state media including China Central Television (CCTV)...Keep on reading: Kim meets Xi in Beijing after Singapore summit.....»»

US farmers dread uncertainty over tariffs

BEIJING --- The tariff sparring makes US farmers feel anxious. As of April, US exports of pork to China at close to $98 million had grown 4 percent by volume and 14 percent by value, according to the US Meat Export Federation. That growth trend might get reversed, however. In response to US President Donald Trump's announcement of 25 percent tariffs on an estimated $50 billion worth of Chinese goods on June 15, China announced on Saturday that it's ready to levy a 25 percent tariff on $34 billion of US goods, including pork, beef and fish. Trump threatened on Tuesday to impose a 10 percent tariff on $200 billion of Chinese goods, in retaliation for China's decision to raise tar...Keep on reading: US farmers dread uncertainty over tariffs.....»»
