Mosques losing sway over Indonesian youth because of online sermons

JAKARTA ---For centuries, mosques have served as places where Muslims deepen their knowledge of Islamic teachings. The influence of mosques, however, is waning as a result of social media-based preaching. A 2018 study by the Center for the Study of Religion and Culture (CSRC) at Syarif Hidayatullah Islamic State University (UIN) Jakarta has revealed that young Muslims are losing interest in studying religion in mosques. The study, which surveyed Muslims aged between 17 and 24 in 18 regencies and cities across Indonesia, also found that social media-based sermons had reduced the influence of religious education in family, organizations or other formal educational institutions.

Eala cruises to second round

Alex Eala and Carlyn Bless Guarde got through the opening round despite a massive foreign onslaught Wednesday in the Phinma-PSC International Junior Tennis Championships Week 2 at Manila Polo Club. The Week 1 champion crushed Japanese Yuna Kadowaki, 6-2, 6-1, to advance against Korean seventh seed Sim Chae-yun who got past fellow Filipina Alexa Joy Milliam, 6-2, 6-3. Guarde posted a 7-5, 1-6, 6-4 victory over India’s Smiriti Bhasin even as five other Filipinas fell in the girls singles of the meet sponsored by Philippine Tennis Association, Philippins Sports Commission, Phinma Properties and Tecnifibre. Eala, who at 13 years old is the country’s most promising talent, rode on the crest of her smashing success last week where she barrelled through taller, older opponents to secure the title. Guarde will have an even bigger task in the second round as she will face next top seed Janine Tjen of Indonesia who booed out Tsai Yu-chin of Chinese Taipei, 6-2, 6-4. Second seed Saki Oyama of Japan defeated Maria Gabriel Sandejas, 6-1, 6-1, to take on China’s Tian FangRan, a 6-0, 6-2 winner over Chinese Taipei’s Huang Suan. Local bets Nina Marie Sandejas dropped to fourth seed Lu XuanJin of China, 6-0, 6-0; Tracy Llamas fell to Zheng Jie-xin of Chinese Taipei, 6-3, 6-1; Maria Patricia Lim yielded to fifth seed Ka Wing Lin of Hong Kong, 6-2, 6-0; and Macie Carlos bowed to Li JingYi of China, 6-3, 6-2. But things looked brighter in boys singles as Nio Tria, Marcus de Rosario and Vince Ej Tugade made it to the second round late Tuesday. Del Rosario pulled off a stunning upset of eighth seed Zhou XianYao of China, 3-6, 6-1, 7-5, while Tria drubbed Jerall Yasin of Indonesia, 6-3, 6-4.  Tugade  nipped Liu Kun of Chinese Taipei, 3-6, 6-3, 6-3.  .....»»

Top Pinoy tennis bets Pantino and Eala clinch semis berths

Filipino top bets Arthur Craig Pantino and Alex Eala went through different routes in getting into the semifinals Friday in the Phinma-PSC International Junior Tennis Championships Week 1 at Manila Polo Club clay courts. The 17-year-old Pantino, ranked 113th in the world, crushed New Zealand’s Corban Crowther, 6-2, 6-1, to book a place in the Final Four against third seed Fumiya Yoshino of Japan. Eala, the 13-year-old tennis wonder, displayed toughness of character beyond her years as she subdued Lu Yu-yun of Chinese Taipei, 6-1, 4-6, 6-3, to also advance in the meet sponsored by Philippine Tennis Association, Philippine Sports Commission, Phinma and Tecnifibre. Pantino also place a foothold in the boys doubles after he and compatriot Justin Suarez barged into the finals. Pantino is back-to-back doubles champion last year aside from making the singles final in Week 1 and capturing the singles title in Week 2. They defeated Crowther and Marcus del Rosario of the Philippines, 6-2, 6-4, to arrange a final duel against top seeds Tom Evans of Australia and Yoshino.

Top-seeded Janice Then of Indonesia marched to the semis as well with a 7-5, 6-4 victory over Tian Fangran of China, 7-5, 6-4.

Pantino, Eala book quarterfinal seats

Filipino top bet Arthur Craig Pantino crushed Chinese Taipei’s Chen Kuan-yu, 6-0, 6-4, Thursday to barge into the quarterfinals of the boys singles of the Phinma-PSC International Juniors tennis championships at Manila Polo Club clay courts. Pantino, who won boys singles in Week 2 of this tournament last year, will gun for a semifinal seat on Friday against either fellow Filipino Aljon Talatayod or 8th seed Corban Crowther of New Zealand who were still locked in battle. The 17-year-old Pantino also swept the boys’ doubles last year pairing with Miko Eala and John Bryan Otico in Weeks 1 and 2, respectively, making him one of the tourney’s top bet. Another local hopeful advanced after Alex Eala sustained her grit and form, turning back Japanese Erika Matsuda, 4-6, 6-4, 6-3, to make the girls singles quarterfinals. The 13-year-old wonder became the only remaining Filipina campaigner after compatriot Amanda Gabrielle Zoleta dropped a 6-2, 6-0 decision at the hands of top seed Janice Tjen of Indonesia earlier. Seeded eighth, Eala will next take on Chinese Taipei qualifier Li Yu-yun who trounced Samantha Nanere of Indonesia, 6-3, 6-1, in the meet sponsored by the Philippine Tennis Association, Philippine Sports Commission, Phinma and Tecnofibre. Girls No. 2 ranked Saki Oyama of Japan clobbered Tsai Yun-chin of Chinese Taipei, 6-1, 6-1, to move to the quarterfinals against sixth seed Taiwanese Fang Wei-ning, a 3-6, 6-0, 6-0 victor over Australia’s Jessica Jade Haylo.

Eala, Zoleta sizzle in Phinma-PSC Int’l Juniors Championships

The Philippines’ most promising tennis talents Alex Eala and Amanda Gabrielle Zoleta barreled through the second round of girls singles Wednesday in the Phinma-PSC International Juniors Championships Week 1 at the Manila Polo Club in Makati. The 14-year-old Eala spearheaded the local girls’ campaign with an easy 6-0, 6-1 thrashing of Hsuan Huang of Chinese Taipei in this tough ITF Grade 4 tournament sponsored by the Philippine Tennis Association, Phinma, Philippine Sports Commission and Tecnifibre. Immediately after, wild card Zoleta stunned Skia Kung of Chinese Taipei, 6-2, 6-2, to book a place in the next round. Their victory followed up the rousing start of the Filipino boys led by last year’s Week 2 champion in singles Arthur Craig Pantino. Seeded second here, Pantino clobbered Japan’s Ryotaro Koshiba, 6-0, 6-2 during Tuesday’s first round in boys singles. Pantino tagged along compatriots Justin Suarez, Matthew Garcia and Aljon Talatayod to the next round of the tourney played on clay indoor courts. Suarez crushed Jerail Yasin of Indonesia, 6-2, 6-2; Garcia defeated Kun Liu of Chinese Taipei, 6-4, 6-2; while Talatayod outlasted Chen Yan-cheng also of Chinese Taipei, 4-6, 6-0, 7-5.

ONE Championship: New dad Danny Kingad balancing life as a fighter, a father, and a student

They say that when you become a father, everything changes. Such is the case for Team Lakay flyweight start Danny Kingad. Kingad and his girlfriend Jannine welcomed a bouncing baby boy into the world last August 14th, and safe to say, it’s given the 22-year old a new source of motivation. “Parang nadoble ‘yung sipag,” Kingad shared. “Everytime na nagte-train ako, nakikita ko siya, naeexcite ako.” The timing couldn’t be more perfect, as Kingad makes his return to action at ONE Championship: Conquest of Heroes on Saturday, September 22nd in Jakarta, Indonesia against Japanese newcomer Yuya Wakamatsu. The proud new father said that even though Jannine went into labor during his fight camp, never was it a distraction from preparing for the fight, rather it served as motivation. “Hindi distraction, kundi mas namomotivate ako.” Kingad expressed. “Mas excited na ako, excited na akong lumabas ‘yung baby. Dagdag sipag sakin eh.” Kingad explains that with the birth of his son Gleuordan Adrian, he’s gotten a new outlook on life and a renewed sense of responsibility. “Oo, nagbago na lahat. Wala na yung lakwatsa. dapat andun ka palagi para sa kanya, inaalagaan mo siya, tapos ayun, pagkatapos alagaan, training.” Now, Kingad faces the challenge of juggling the life of being a father, a fighter, and for the moment, a college student. Currently a third-year Education student at the University of the Cordilleras, Kingad says he’s managing to balance all three roles in his life. “Binabalance ko,” he proudly shared. "Meron naman si mother niya na nagbabantay sa kanya pag may training ako. Pag may time ako punta ako sa kanya tapos inaalagaan ko siya.”   Catch ONE Championship: Conquest of Heroes on Saturday, September 22nd at 10:30 PM LIVE on ABS-CBN S+A channel 23!   .....»»

Bhutan: No medals yet in the Asian Games, but still happy

By STEPHEN WADE,  AP Sports Writer JAKARTA, Indonesia (AP) — The Himalayan Kingdom of Bhutan has never won a medal of any kind at the Asian Games, much less the Olympics. The country's fame, instead, comes from its billing as one of the happiest places on earth. In fact, the government promotes a concept it terms "Gross National Happiness" as a way to measure success. "People at home are not unhappy we have not won," Younten Tshedup, a reporter for the national newspaper Kuensel, told the Associated Press at the Asian Games. "Everyone is happy, even with no medals. But medals this time would be icing on the cake." By comparison, Bhutan's giant neighbor China has won more than 3,000 medals — about 1,500 gold — in Asian Games competitions. "We are hoping to change it this time," Younten added. Bhutan, with a population of only 750,000, has 24 athletes entered in sports including archery, taekwondo, boxing and — believe it or not — golf. Karma Karma, who competed two years ago at the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, could break through in archery, which is Bhutan's national sport. She was also the flagbearer in Saturday's opening ceremony in Jakarta. Soccer and cricket are also popular in Bhutan, but competition is amateur. Archery has many participants, but the disciplines practiced at home are different than those on the Asian Games and Olympic sports programs. "We'd be happy with any medal," Nim Dorji, the head of the delegation, told The AP. Several athletes in taekwondo could break through. They talked up their chances — but were realistic, too — on Monday while seated around a table eating lunch and decked out in their distinctive red and yellow uniforms with the dragon crest on the chest. "Bhutan is a very small country," taekwondo athlete Tenzin Dorji explained. "We don't have the facilities. Maybe that's why we are not winning. In Bhutan we (athletes) are all students and we only practice for four hours. In other countries they are almost practicing for a whole day." Part of the challenge has been Bhutan's isolation, trapped between China and India in the Himalayas. It has just recently begun to open up with television and social media pushing quick change, and the natural beauty also is a lure that attracts outsiders. Nim, the head of the delegation, said the Bhutan government was getting more involved and offering incentives. "We are a small country known for our culture and traditions," taekwondo athlete Kinzang Choden said. "But sports are not our careers. Education is given more importance than sports by the government." Bhutan has sent athletes to every Asian Games since 1990, according the country's profile on the Asian Games website. The closest it has come to winning a medal was in 1998 in Bangkok, when its men's archery team lost a bronze-medal match against China. Bhutan is not alone in Asia in its medal struggles. East Timor, Indonesia's neighbor on the eastern border, is also yet to win a medal at the Asian Games, a quadrennial event that has attracted more than 11,000 athletes from 45 countries and territories competing in 40 sports. The website for the Olympic Council of Asia — the governing body of regional sports — shows six other nations that have won medals, but never a gold medal: Afghanistan, Brunei, Laos, Nepal, Palestine, and Yemen. "Everyone here is expecting a medal," Younten, the Bhutanese reporter said. "We are expecting a few, but we're not very sure about which disciplines."    .....»»

New phase of globalization could worsen CO2 pollution – study

The shift of low-value, energy-hungry manufacturing from China and India to coal-powered economies with even lower wages could be bad news for the fight against climate change, researchers cautioned on Monday.   As Asia's giants move up the globalization food chain, many of the industries that helped propel their phenomenal growth -- textiles, apparel, basic electronics -- are moving to Vietnam, Indonesia, and other nations investing heavily in a coal-powered future. Since the start of the Industrial Revolution, global warming has been caused mainly by burning oil, gas, and especially carbon-rich coal.   "This trend may seriously undermine international efforts t...Keep on reading: New phase of globalization could worsen CO2 pollution – study.....»»
