ISF group backs De Lima’s move to probe condition of 600,000 relocated families

      A group of informal settler families (ISFs) on Saturday expressed its full support on the planned Senate investigation into the living condition and impending eviction of around 600,000 families that had been relocated to 69 resettlement areas of the National Housing Authority (NHA). Homeowners Federation of Northville and Southville, Inc. (HFNSI) head Josephtos Nilo said they were increasingly worried about their possible eviction due to their failure to settle their outstanding arrears and penalties. "Mahigit 10 taon na mula nang kami ay ilipat ng gobyerno ngunit hanggang ngayon ay hindi pa rin umaangat ang antas ng aming pamumuhay bagkus ay patu...Keep on reading: ISF group backs De Lima’s move to probe condition of 600,000 relocated families.....»»

Only 13% of ‘Yolanda’ housing occupied, 38% built

          Four years after Supertyphoon "Yolanda" ("Haiyan") hit the Philippines, particularly in the Visayas region where it made landfall, the government has built only less than half of the housing demand for those devastated by the monster storm, and has rehomed only a little more than a tenth of the families.       Based on data presented to the media by the National Housing Authority (NHA) on Tuesday, as of October 30, 2017, only 12.79 percent---26, 256 units of the 205, 128 targeted number of permanent housing units nationwide---have actually been awarded to and are already being occupied by beneficiaries. &...Keep on reading: Only 13% of ‘Yolanda’ housing occupied, 38% built.....»»

BEST OF 5 Part 2: O captain, my captain, Topex Robinson

Read Part 1 of ABS-CBN Sports’ Best of 5 series on the LPU Pirates here. --- Long before Lyceum of the Philippines University was dominating the NCAA, it was already a force to reckon with in other collegiate leagues. The Pirates were the class of both the National Capital Region Athletic Association (NCRAA) and the Inter-Scholastic Athletic Association (ISAA). Also, they had four Sweet 16 finishes to their name in the Philippine Collegiate Champions League (PCCL). Perennial favorites in the collegiate leagues they competed in, they were, without a doubt, a battleship staking claim to a river. Clearly, the Intramuros-based squad needed a whole damn sea to set sail in. MAKE WAY And so, LPU entered the first and oldest collegiate league in the country as a guest team in 2011. However, they soon realized that they may have had good endings in their prior collegiate leagues, but the NCAA is a whole different story. The Pirates fell far from the .500 mark in their first four years in the NCAA and compiled an overall record of 25-47. “Na-experience ko lahat simula guest team pa lang ang Lyceum. Noon, yung pag-compete namin, kapos na kapos pa,” now graduating Wilson Baltazar recalled of that time. He then continued, “Naalala ko nung mga panahong yun, gustong-gusto naming manalo, pero laging kulang effort namin.” Their battleship was now in the sea, but was also now alongside other battleships – other battleships which were bigger, badder, better. Clearly, change had to come. PARTING WAYS Long before he was the leader of a crew that is now in the championship round, Topex Robinson was already leading a generational group in the Finals. In just his first year as head coach of San Sebastian College-Recoletos in 2011, Robinson made it all the way to the Finals, guiding the famed “Pinatubo Trio” of Calvin Abueva, Ronald Pascual, and Ian Sangalang into yet again challenging dynastic San Beda College. Unfortunately, his first championship wasn’t meant to be as he and his alma mater ultimately bowed down to the Red Lions. The former PBA player would not reach the same heights again in Recto. With a 5-13 record in 2014, both Baste and its alumnus had fallen off the map. Clearly, change had to come. SEE YOU AT THE CROSSROADS And so, LPU saw the resignation of 11-year head coach Bonnie Tan while San Sebastian witnessed Robinson’s second departure from the bench. Not long after, LPU and Robinson then found one another. “It was something I didn’t expect to happen so early because, basically, I had just resigned from San Sebastian. I guess I was just blessed to be given an opportunity,” the always amiable mentor now narrates. Just as the Pirates were more than willing to give the young coaching mind a fresh start, the young coaching mind was also more than willing to give the Pirates a fresh start. “It was just an opportunity for me to grow. I always loved coaching and that’s how I always envisioned myself,” he said. He then continued, “So whatever opportunity there is for me to take my calling, I’m always open to that.” THIS IS DIFFERENT Still, Robinson made it clear that it never crossed his mind that he would end up inside the walls of Intramuros – a place he did not really have any ties to. “I never thought of being LPU coach,” he expressed. In fact, he went on to say that in during those first few practices, he had a tough time getting their team name right. As he put it, “Actually, the first year, I still always said, ‘San Sebastian.’ Yung adjustment from San Sebastian then all of a sudden, I was in LPU, it took me a while bago mag-sink in.” Fortunately for the mentor, he had the all-out support of both the school of the students. “What I appreciate about LPU is the support of the students and the management. Yun yung isang bagay na I was really excited about – knowing na I had the full support of the community,” he said. Of course, that all-out support entailed being given the tallest of tasks. “Sa start pa lang, they told me to change the culture. I pretty much explained to them that it’s not an overnight thing, that it’s gonna take a while,” he said. ROUGH START Robinson’s entry didn’t necessarily turn the tides in LPU’s favor. He won four of 18 games in his debut season and then followed that up with a 6-12 record in his sophomore effort. However, he also wasted no time in effecting change in the habits of players. “Yung iniba ni coach Topex, yung disiplina sa team. Ngayon, willing kaming lahat gawin lahat para manalo,” Baltazar shared, noting the difference between the Pirates of old and the Pirates under Robinson. He then continued, “Sa training talaga, dun mo makikita yung pagkakaiba. Ngayon kasi, lahat nag-sacrifice sa training, lahat nagbibigay ng effort mula sa dulo ng bench hanggang first five.” Baltazar went on to say how their new head coach gave his all to make them understand that they are a team and not just a collection of individuals. “Lahat kami, walang entitled, pantay-pantay lang. Kung anong ginagawa ng isa, ginagawa ng lahat,” he said. And while that understanding didn’t translate onto the standings just yet, Robinson already proved that he was up to the tallest of tasks. That did not get lost on the LPU community which entrusted him with its fledgling program. “What I appreciate from them is LPU is really determined to change what was there and make this program one to be respected,” he then continued. Now, the LPU Pirates had their captain. Now, it was just all about assembling the right crew. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

For teen star McNeal "Awra" Briguela, there's always something to be grateful for. "I'm happy that my Kuya Coco (Martin, his costar in 'FPJ's Ang Probinsyano') takes care of me. He and Dreamscape have given me the chance to work on 'Super Ving' for 'Wansapanataym,' and Kuya Coco has included me in the cast of the MMFF entry, 'Ang Panday,'" said the 13-year-old actor. "When he sees me, he always wishes me luck or says, 'Congrats!' But, what I'll always be thankful for is the chance to continue schooling through the scholarship that he gave me. He's truly a blessing to me." ---MARINEL CRUZ...Keep on reading: Awra’s blessing.....»»

Lady Bulldogs trust new system

National University’s dominating championship run in the Premier Volleyball League Collegiate Conference is a testament that the Lady Bulldogs are already adapting to a new system under head coach Babes Castillo. Just a few months since assuming the post left by Roger Gorayeb last summer after the 79th Season of the UAAP, Castillo was able to slowly guide the squad under his system and bring fresh brand of play for NU.     The PVL was his testing ground and the Lady Bulldogs delivered. NU swept all of its nine games in the tournament including an emphatic demolition of Far Eastern University in the best-of-three Finals series. Six-foot-5 veteran Jaja Santiago, Risa Sato, a healthier Aiko Urdas and Jorelle Singh, third year setter Jasmine Nabor and top libero Gayle Valdez responded well with Castillo’s system.  Even with a new coach the Lady Bulldogs were able to collect their third straight Collegiate Conference title since winning the defunct V-League’s last two editions in 2015 and 2016. “Sabi nga namin, ang natutunan ko sa conference na ito is a matter of respect and mag-jive kami sa bagong sistema na ini-implement sa amin,” said Santiago, who won the Conference Most Valuable Player award. “Natutuwa ako kasi lahat kami sumunod doon and lahat kami nakuha namin ‘yun.” Castillo is the graduating Santiago’s fourth coach in her five-year collegiate career. She was coached by Francis Vicente during her rookie year before going under the guidance of Dong Dela Cruz and Roger Gorayeb in the next three years.  So adapting to a new system isn't new to her. “Natutunan ko na wala namang mawawala kung susundin ko ang bagong sistema and mamahalin namin kung ano ang meron kami ngayon,” she said. “Happy ako na dito sa PVL nakuha namin ang sistema na gusto talaga ni coach para sa amin. Tingin ko sobrang malaking maitutulong nito for the team.” The championship is a big boost for NU as the Lady Bulldogs prepare for the most important battle when the 80th UAAP tournament rolls early next year.  br /> NU has a two-year UAAP Final Four drought. “Pagtatrabahuhan po talaga namin na makarating ng championship ngayong UAAP kasi yun po talaga ang goal naming,” said Nabor, named Finals MVP. “Kumabaga last UAAP po yun po ang plano namin pero may mga kulang pa po.” br /> “Parang simula ngayon hanggang mag-UAAP na pagtatrabahuhan po namin ang mga dapat naming pagtrabahuhan para makuha po namin ang goal naming,” she added. “Sisiguraduhin po namin na nasa maayos kami na preparasyon,” Santiago seconded. br />   br />   br /> --- br /> Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles br />   .....»»

Chiefs without Salado: Mahirap, nawala ang konduktor

To say that Kent Salado's injury is a big blow to the Arellano Chiefs would be an understatement. Salado is out at least a month after suffering an MCL tear that doesn't require surgery according to head coach Jerry Codinera. The timing couldn't be any worse as the Chiefs scramble to keep their playoff hopes alive in the NCAA Season 93 men's basketball tournament. 'Mahirap, sabi nga nila nawala ang konduktor, puro pasahero na lang ang nandoon,' head coach Jerry Codinera said. Despite missing Salado's 19.1 points, 5.0 assists, 3.8 rebonds, and 1.3 steals per game, Arellano is somehow finding ways to win. The Chiefs beat Perpetual Thursday for their third straight victory, keeping their Final Four dreams alive. It was a big win for a team that's missing its biggest star. 'Iniisip ko lang po na offer na lang din tong laro kay Salado kasi nga malungkot po pag wala si Salado eh,' Levi Dela Cruz said, who took over the lead guard spot with Kent on the sidelines. He finished with 11 points, four rebounds, and four assists against the Altas in 30 minutes of play. 'Parang nanghihina po kami lahat. Talagang nag-step up na lang din kami, yung mga ginagawa ni Kent pinunan na lang namin hanggang sa abot ng makakaya namin,' he added. With the Chiefs giving themselves a chance with a depleted lineup, Codinera hopes that his team can continue to come through even without Salado. 'New found confidence na rin yun na they can win without him,' he said.   br /> --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8 .....»»
