WHAT WENT BEFORE: Arroyos on watch list under Aquino administration

On Nov. 15, 2011, then President Benigno Aquino III's administration stopped former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo and her husband, Jose Miguel "Mike" Arroyo, from boarding a Hong Kong-bound plane and leaving the country, despite a Supreme Court order allowing her to seek medical treatment abroad. Voting 8-5 on the same day, the high court issued a temporary restraining order (TRO) on the administration's move to put Arroyo on its watch list. Asked if the decision of the Bureau of Immigration to stop the Arroyos from leaving despite a high court order giving them the green light amounted to a contemptuous act, then Supreme Court spokesperson Jose Midas Marquez said: "Yes, it...Keep on reading: WHAT WENT BEFORE: Arroyos on watch list under Aquino administration.....»»

How exactly will the Gilas cadets in Filoil Preseason work?

The Gilas cadets will be using the 2018 Filoil Flying V Preseason Cup as preparation for the 2023 FIBA World Cup. “Actually, this is the start of the long process to prepare for the World Cup in 2023. What a better way to start it than on our home ground – sa Filoil,” Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas deputy director Butch Antonio said. Already named to the Gilas cadets pool are J-Jay Alejandro, Jeo Ambohot, Robert Bolick, Kemark Carino, Paul Desiderio, Isaac Go, Juan Gomez de Liano, Will Gozum, Javee Mocon, Matt Nieto, Kobe Paras, CJ Perez, Thirdy Ravena, Ricci Rivero, Arvin Tolentino, Abu Tratter, and Ken Tuffin as well as high school stars Kai Sotto and Carl Tamayo. But as per Antonio, nothing is set in stone. “We have been given flexibility by Filoil. Ang gagawin namin, the pool will be part of it, a pool of 14 to 16 then plus-minus na yan,” he said. Indeed, that would be for the best as the Filoil Preseason is also traditionally utilized by school-based squads to gear up for the looming collegiate wards. With at least a dozen members of the Gilas cadets pool also lined up in school-based squads, it’s best to be flexible. And so, what happens when the Gilas cadets have a matchup with a school-based squad which a player as part of the pool? Say, when it’s the Gilas cadets versus Robert Bolick, Javee Mocon, and San Beda College? “It’s gonna be a weird setup when players are gonna play for their school teams and us, but hopefully, we’re gonna manage. When we play against Player A’s team, Player A will play for his team,” Antonio said. In our example then, Bolick and Mocon will suit up for the Red Lions up against the Gilas cadets. And if the Gilas cadets have a game and then a particular player has another game for his school-based squad within the day? “Now, if Player A has a game before or after us, he plays for his team and he will double-up (for the Gilas cadets). Nakausap na naman nina coach Chot [Reyes] and coach Jong [Uichico] most of the college coaches so we’ll manage na lang the minutes,” Antonio said. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

Selling off the Ritz, one monogrammed slipper at a time

  Who wants a piece of the Ritz? The legendary Paris hotel, home for a while to Ernest Hemingway, Marcel Proust and Coco Chanel, is auctioning off 10,000 pieces of furniture and decor through the auction house Artcurial. The hotel's reputation for luxury and celebrity has already created global buzz around the sale. Although the pieces that will be on sale from April 17 to 21 might not have exceptional monetary value, they also pack a certain je ne sais quoi of something from the iconic Place Vendome establishment. "The resonance of the Ritz abroad is very important," Stephane Aubert, one of the two auctioneers, told AFP.

Japan female mayor loses fight to speak from sumo ring

A female Japanese mayor was barred Friday from delivering a speech inside a sumo ring a day after controversy erupted over a longstanding ban on women entering the sport's rings. On Thursday Japan's sumo association chief made headlines at home and abroad after issuing an apology to several women who were ordered out of a sumo ring while trying to offer life-saving medical assistance. Women are traditionally banned from sumo rings, which are sacred spaces in the Shinto religion from which the sport emerged, because they are considered "ritually unclean".
