Urban decay, mga pabayang kapitan ang ugat

BBL, papasa ba sa Kongreso?

MAGUINDANAO – Muling nabuhayan ng loob ang rebeldeng Moro Islamic Liberation Front o MILF matapos ang puspusang pangangampanya ng pamahalaang Duterte na maipasa sa Kongreso ang Bangsamoro Basic Law o BBL.   Matatandaang ibinasura ng Kongreso sa nakaraang administrasyon ni Pangulong Benigno Aquino ang BBL dahil sa mga probisyon nitong labag sa Konstitusyon at ang pagpigil ng ilang mga mambabatas na maipasa ito sa kadahilanang hindi katanggap-tanggap ang mga nakasaad doon.   Sinabi noon ni MILF chieftain Murad Ebrahim na nakahanda silang maghintay sa susunod na administrasyon kung sakaling mabalam ang BBL. Ngunit nilinaw nito na hindi nila tatanggapin ang anumang bersyon ng BBL maliban lamang kung ito ay naaayon sa Comprehensive Agreement on the Bangsamoro at Framework Agreement on the Bangsamoro na nilagdaan ng pamahalaang Aquino sa rebeldeng grupo.   Nakasalalay ngayon ang buhay ng BBL sa 17th Congress, ngunit halos wala naman nabago sa mga lumang probisyon ng naturang draft law at mas pinalawig pa ito.   Naantala ng husto ang deliberasyon ng BBL sa 16th Congress dahil sa naganap na pagpatay ng mga rebeldeng MILF sa 44 mga miyembro ng Special Action Force o SAF sa bayan ng Mamasapano sa Maguindanao, isa sa limang lalawigan ng Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao, noong Enero 2015.   Nasa isang misyon ang SAF na kung saan ay napatay ng mga commandos ang Malaysian bomber na si Marwan na kinakanlong diumano ng MILF – nang sila ay kuyugin ng mga rebelde sa tulong na rin ng Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters.   Dahil sa Mamasapano clash ay maraming grupo at pulitiko ang nanawagan na magbitiw si Aquino at presidential peace adviser Teresita Deles dahil sa kanilang kabiguan na pigilan ang sagupaan at pagpatay sa SAF commandos. Pangamba ngayon ng MILF na kung mabasurang muli ang BBL ay posibleng bumalik sa rebelyon ang mga miyembro nito.   Naunang sinabi ng mga anti-BBL lawmakers na ibabasura nila ang tinatawag an “opt-in” provision na nakapaloob sa BBL na maaaring magamit upang palawigin ang teritoryo ng Bangsamoro na tinututulan ng mga Kristiyanong pulitiko. Maraming mga amendments ang nais gawin ng mga mambabatas sa BBL upang masigurado umanong hindi lalabag sa Konstitusyon ang mga probisyon sa nasabing draft law.   Lumagda ng peace accord ang MILF at pamahalaan noon 2014, ngunit dahil sa naganap na labanan sa Mamasapno ay nabinbin ito at hindi naipasa sa termino ni Aquino, subali’t ipinangako naman ni Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte na gagawin nito ang lahat upang maipasa ang BBL.   Ngunit isinusulong rin ni Duterte ang federalism sa bansa na inaayawan naman ng MILF dahil dapat umanong maisakatuparan muna ang BBL at mapalawig ang Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao bago ang federalism.   Naisumite na ng Bangasamoro Transition Commission ang BBL draft kay Duterte nitong Hulyo lamang. Tutol naman ang Moro National Liberation Front sa BBL ng kalabang MILF.   “The purpose of this Basic Law is to establish a political entity, provide for its basic structure of government in recognition of the justness and legitimacy of the cause of the Bangsamoro people and their aspiration to chart their political future through a democratic process that will secure their identity and posterity and allow for meaningful self-governance,” nakasaad sa BBL draft.   Sa naturang BBLL draft, ang mga sumusunod ay mapapasama sa bagong political entity – ang mga bayan ng Baloi, Munai, Nunungan, Pantar, Tagoloan at Tangkal sa Lanao del Norte at lahat ng barangay sa Kabacan, Carmen, Aleosan, Pigkawayan, Pikit, at Midsayap na bumuto sa plebisito noon 2001. At ang lungsod ng Cotabato at Isabela, gayun ang mga contiguous areas na kung saan ay maaaring mag petisyon ang 10% ng mga residente doon upang mapasama sa Bangsamoro territory Dalawang buwan bago ang ratipikasyon ng BBL.   Nakasaad rin sa BBL draft ang mga sumusunod sa ilalim ng General Principles and Policies &'' In the exercise of its right to self-determination and self-governance, the Bangsamoro is free to pursue its political, economic, social, and cultural development; the Bangsamoro Government shall be parliamentary. Its political system is democratic, allowing its people to freely participate in the political processes within its territory; the Bangsamoro Government, consistent and suitable to its parliamentary form of government, shall adopt an electoral system which shall allow democratic participation, encourage formation of genuinely principled political parties, and ensure accountability.   At dagdag pa dito ang mga sumusunod: Governance in the Bangsamoro is the responsibility of the duly elected civilian government. Civilian authority is, at all times, supreme over the military. The Bangsamoro Government shall promote unity, peace, justice, and goodwill among all peoples, as well as encourage a just and peaceful settlement of disputes. The Bangsamoro abides by the principle that the country renounces war as an instrument of national policy, adopts the generally accepted principles of international law as part of the law of the land, and adheres to the policy of peace, equality, justice, freedom, cooperation, and amity with all nations.   The Bangsamoro shall adhere to the principle of enjoining what is right and forbidding what is wrong. The Bangsamoro shall establish a government that ensures that every citizen in the Bangsamoro is provided the basic necessities and equal opportunities in life. Social Justice shall be promoted in all phases of development and facets of life within the Bangsamoro. The Bangsamoro Government shall respect and adhere to all international treaties and agreements which benefited the Bangsamoro Government, bukod sa iba pang mga probisyon na inaayawan ng [&'].....»»

The case for Keenum: Vikings QB keeps on disproving doubters

By Dave Campbell, Associated Press MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — When Minnesota's offense huddled for the first time that mid-September afternoon in Pittsburgh, Case Keenum's energy and confidence quickly filled the circle. The Vikings were forced to turn to their backup quarterback to start the second game of the season after Sam Bradford's knee acted up, an ominous development that can doom a team to an autumn of disenchantment and playing for draft pick position. Despite the decisive defeat against the Steelers that day, though, there was a certain assurance Keenum gave his teammates that suggested they'd be all right. "He's a guy you want to play for," wide receiver Adam Thielen said. Four months later, the Vikings and Keenum are still playing. They're two wins away from reaching the Super Bowl. "It's been a blast, man. It's been incredible. I'm sure one of these days I'll be able to look back and really appreciate it, but there's so much to enjoy right now," Keenum said. "Not really putting too much into perspective. Not really looking too much at the big picture. I'm keeping my blinders on." With a modest 6-foot-1, 215-pound frame, Keenum was mostly ignored by major college programs despite leading Abilene Wylie High School to its first state championship in football-obsessed Texas. Houston made his only FBS scholarship offer, from then-head coach Art Briles, and by the time Keenum was finished with the Cougars he was the NCAA's all-time leading passer with 19,217 yards and 155 touchdowns. Yet he still went undrafted in 2012, needing the Houston Texans practice squad to get his professional career off the ground. Keenum started 10 games over the next two years before being traded to the Rams in 2015, but they made Jared Goff the first pick in the 2016 draft so there was no future for Keenum there beyond being a veteran mentor. Even Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer was among those who typecast Keenum as a just-in-case second-stringer. Zimmer acknowledged recently he didn't gain full confidence in Keenum until the 11th or 12th game of the season and, when Teddy Bridgewater was cleared to play in mid-November, Zimmer never declared Keenum the starter for more than a week at a time. "He just wanted a chance," his father, Steve Keenum, said this week in a phone interview. "He's got to have the knack. It's just a God-given, innate thing that he's maximized by working hard." As the oldest of his three children, Case made clear at an early age to Steve that he had the makeup to be an NFL quarterback even if there was no way to predict how the skill set would unfold. "He was competitive in everything. It could be a board game. It could be playing darts. It could be playing cards. It didn't matter. But if it had a ball, he wanted to do it," said Steve, who was a high school and college coach around Texas for 24 years, including 10 seasons as the head coach at his alma mater McMurry University. Good coaching, starting with dad's tips in the family backyards, was another success factor. When Briles left for Baylor, Kevin Sumlin arrived at Houston for Keenum's sophomore year. Dana Holgorsen, now the head coach at West Virginia, was the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach. After he departed, Kliff Kingsbury, currently the head coach at Texas Tech, took charge of the quarterbacks. "They had some speed, and the next thing you know they were throwing the ball all over the field," said Steve, who attended all 57 of Case's games with the Cougars and has been to each game he's played for the Vikings. "They had some really talented kids. People talked about him being a system guy, with short passes and a run after the catch, but they didn't see him play." Steve is now an area director for the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, an organization that Case has long been active in as well. "He's come to the realization like a lot of people in big situations that there are things that are really too big to do by yourself, and in order to stay grounded you've got to find somebody or something that you believe strongly in," Steve said. "I think his faith has been that for him." Though Keenum had prior NFL experience, including nine starts for the Los Angeles Rams in 2016, he was signed by the Vikings as a one-year stopgap to be the guy in the ball cap providing sideline support and give Bridgewater ample time to recover from his colossal knee injury. Bradford had just produced an injury-free career-best performance in 2016, after all, so the Vikings were banking on him. Over the last four months, though, they've been cashing in on Keenum, a dividend that has paid out handsomely for both parties. "We've got a great group of guys here," he said, "and I think we're all excited to be extending our season." With offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur deftly adapting the team's scheme to use Keenum's mobility to better advantage and a sleeker offensive line mostly protecting him well, the Vikings have leaped up the league rankings in every significant statistical category. Among them: 28th to ninth in scoring touchdowns on possessions after passing the 20-yard line, and 19th to third in third-down conversions. Keenum will start his first playoff game Sunday against New Orleans, with a raucous home crowd at U.S. Bank Stadium ready to cheer the next step toward the franchise's elusive first championship. "Our fans are awesome," Keenum said. "All my friends and family who have come up from Texas and my friends from other teams that come in, they'll text me after the games and they'll be like, 'Dude, that place is ridiculous.' It really is.".....»»

Kevin Alas responds to Coach Louie s Parking pa lang gameplan: 'Hindi na lang ako uuwi ng bahay'

Being the veteran coach that he is, Phoenix head mentor Louie Alas knows a thing or two about preparing for his opponents. And like any good coach, he’s willing to pull out all the stops to neutralize his opponents’ weapons and help his team get an all-important win. All the stops…even if it means trapping one of those said weapons at home. When the All Filipino Conference of the 43rd Season of the PBA resumes action on Sunday, January 7th, Coach Louie’s Phoenix Fuel Masters will be taking on the unbeaten NLEX Road Warriors. One of NLEX’s key guys happens to be Coach Louie’s son Kevin, and already, Coach Louie has a game plan to shut Kevin down. "Ngayon hanggang parking pa lang ita-trap ko na," Coach Louie jokingly said. Well, Kevin isn’t going to take any chances. When asked about his dad’s plan to keep him under ‘house arrest’ so to say, Kevin has a counter-strategy of his own. “Siguro the night before our game, hindi na lang ako uuwi ng bahay,” Kevin told ABS-CBN Sports with a chuckle. “Baka hindi ako palabasin ng bahay eh.” The upcoming father-son matchup also has the Alas household playfully divided, as Kevin shared. “Nung Medya Noche, parang nagbibiruan kami, sabi ko ‘Mom, kanino ka mag-chicheer? NLEX ba o Phoenix?' Phoenix daw siya, then si Kiefer, yung kapatid ko na ten years old, tinanong ko ‘O, saan ka mag-chicheer?’ NLEX sabi niya. 'Ah ganun ah?' sabi ni Dad.” “It’s a light biruan lang naman nung nag-Medya Noche kami. It was fun.” Kevin added. It’ll be all business on Sunday however, when Kevin and NLEX take on Coach Louie and Phoenix at the Big Dome......»»
