Opinion: Thinking Beyond Politics -- Victor Andres Manhit: "Harnessing the Filipino potential"

While the Philippines has enjoyed rapid economic growth, poverty and inequality rates remain high. Unsurprisingly, in terms of human development, the Philippines ranks behind its peers in ASEAN. To ensure that growth becomes more inclusive, the current administration should address persistent concerns on human capital formation and start preparing for the potentially disruptive effects of new technologies. If they do so, our people will gain a better chance of enjoying the benefits of economic and technological progress......»»

Johnson joins, Domingo returns for Alab Pilipinas

Alab Pilipinas will be getting back one of its key cogs while also welcoming a big-time boost for the looming 2017-2018 Asean Basketball League. Versatile Lo Domingo will be returning for another tour of duty for the Philippines. Introducing himself to everybody a year ago, the 23-year-old emerged as the perfect complement to fellow Filipino-American Ray Parks Jr. He served as the squad’s hustle player as well as defensive specialist. And now, Domingo will have a more imposing frontcourt partner in American Ivan Johnson. The six-foot-eight, 255-pound center is a menacing inside presence who will also bring much-needed attitude to a squad which fell a notch below top two Hong Kong and Singapore last season. Johnson was last seen by the Filipinos reinforcing TNT all the way to the championship in the 2015 PBA Commissioner’s Cup. He also played two seasons for the Atlanta Hawks in the NBA. Domingo and Johnson will flank reigning and defending Local MVP Parks Jr. for reloaded Alab.. The Alapag-guided and Parks Jr.-bannered Filipinos will once again see action in the ABL commencing later in the year. All of the action will still be on S+A, S+A HD, and --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo. .....»»

Lady Warriors go streaking; Ateneo falls for first time

With De La Salle University plagued by injury, University of the East is now the closest challenger to National University’s throne in the UAAP 80 Women’s Basketball Tournament. And after a season-opening defeat, the Lady Warriors now look the part, going on a win run at the expense of hapless University of the Philippines, 52-42, on Sunday at the Araneta Coliseum. Playing their third game in a week, the girls of head coach Aileen Lebornio still showed much sense of urgency in this one. Bienca Ramos and Joyce Francisco provided a big boost, conniving for all but four in UE’s 19-point third quarter that increased a three-point cushion into a 48-31 lead heading into the final frame. “Nung third quarter, buti nag-respond sila sa sinabi ko at nakuha na namin gusto namin,” Lebornio said. Love Sto. Domingo then hammered down the final nail in the coffin and eventually ended with a 15-point, 17-rebound double-double. Ramos and Francisco also contributed 12 markers apiece. Lebornio’s defense was stout as always, limiting the Lady Maroons into an abysmal 21 percent shooting. And so, after falling to NU in their first assignment, the Lady Warriors are now on a two-game win run. They are now in three-way tie for third after erstwhile undefeated Ateneo de Manila University suffered its first setback in the season. Valerie Mamaril and Precious Arellado scored 16 and 15 points, respectively, and Far Eastern University made another statement, taking down the Lady Eagles, 64-58. Katrina Guytingco’s back-to-back hits kept things interesting for Ateneo in the last 20 seconds before Mamaril kept them at bay once and for all by converting three charities. “At least, meron na kaming help ngayon kasi si Arellado lang last year e. Nag-improve na rin talaga yung Mamaril,” head coach Bert Flores said after his girls bounced back onto a 2-1 standing. Also at 2-1 are the Lady Eagles who were led by Hazelle Yam’s 20 points.
