Mandatory ROTC bill violates laws protecting kids

It’s a go for Yap’s trial at Sandiganbayan

The Sandiganbayan will proceed with the trial of former Agriculture Secretary Arthur Yap, now a Bohol representative, in connection with an employee car plan deemed disadvantageous to the government. In a 32-page resolution dated Dec. 5, the court's Sixth Division denied Yap's motion to quash and affirmed that the elements of valid graft charges were sufficiently stated to warrant a full-blown trial. The cases stemmed from the approval of a car plan, which, from 2008 to 2009, allowed 10 Philippine Rice Research Institute (PhilRice) employees to use the agency's funds to secure personal loans they obtained from the Philippine National Bank (PNB). Yap argued that he was absent dur...Keep on reading: It’s a go for Yap’s trial at Sandiganbayan.....»»

Title defense opens up as Chelsea ends City s unbeaten start

By Rob Harris, Associated Press LONDON (AP) — For 45 minutes Chelsea was under siege, pinned back in its own half by Manchester City. With halftime approaching, Chelsea finally managed a shot from an unlikely source and broke through the impervious champions. Just when he seemed to be struggling to adapt to a more advanced attacking midfield role, N'Golo Kante got into space in front of goal to be set up by Eden Hazard and sweep the ball into the net. So wasteful in the first half, City then allowed Chelsea to seize the initiative as its unbeaten start to the Premier League title defense came to an end. "Everyone wants to beat us," City manager Pep Guardiola said. David Luiz made sure of that, heading in from Hazard's corner in the 78th minute to seal Chelsea's 2-0 win on Saturday. "It was a great game and we have to be honest playing against the best team in Europe or the world at the moment," Luiz said. "They have great players, so we had a lot of humility and tried to take our chances to score, so we did our plan well." Not only did City lose for the first time in the league this season but it also lost top spot to Liverpool, which moved a point ahead after Mohamed Salah's hat trick inspired a 4-0 victory at Bournemouth. Chelsea still has a lot of work to do to move back into contention. Having lost two of its last three league games before the visit of City, Maurizio Sarri's fourth-placed side is eight points behind Liverpool. Tottenham remained two points ahead of Chelsea in third place but only six points from top spot after winning 2-0 at Leicester. UNITED REBOUNDS The visit of last-placed Fulham allowed Manchester United to end a four-match winless run as Jose Mourinho's side claimed a 4-1 victory. Ashley Young struck into the top corner to put United ahead in the 13th minute, Juan Mata slotted in from Marcus Rashford's cutback in the 28th and Romelu Lukaku ended his 997-minute wait for a goal at Old Trafford in the 42nd. Substitute Aboubakar Kamara's penalty reduced the deficit from the spot but Fulham midfielder Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa's sending off in the 68th was followed by Marcus Rashford netting for United in the 82nd. The title remains far from United's thoughts, with Liverpool 16 points ahead. SALAH TREBLE For the first time this season, Salah scored more than once in a league game. It's a reminder of how the forward won the Golden Boot last season. At Bournemouth, Salah broke the deadlock in the 25th minute when he responded to a parried shot. The Egyptian stayed on his feet under a challenge from Steve Cook before drilling home in style, before netting three minutes into the second half. Cook somehow back-heeled past his own goalkeeper, Asmir Begovic, when trying to clear Andy Robertson's cross. A mazy dribble preceded Salah completing his hat trick in the 77th. GAMBLE PAYS OFF With Tottenham playing at Barcelona in the Champions League on Tuesday, Mauricio Pochettino gave Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen some rest by starting them on the bench at Leicester. It paid off, thanks to the contribution of Son Heung-min. The South Korean struck the opener from long-range on the stroke of halftime and then provided a cross for Dele Alli to head in the second in the 58th minute. ARSENAL ADVANCES Lucas Torreira acrobatically volleyed into the bottom left corner in the 83rd minute as Arsenal beat Huddersfield 1-0 to extend its club-record unbeaten run to 21 matches in all competitions. Arsenal remained fifth, behind Chelsea on goal difference. LOSING START Ralph Hasenhuettl made his presence felt at Southampton with six changes from the side that lost to Tottenham on Wednesday. But it was a familiar losing story for Mark Hughes' successor. Hasenhuettl's first game in charge was spoiled by Callum Paterson pouncing on a poor back pass to score in the 74th minute for Cardiff. WEST HAM FIGHTBACK Crystal Palace has only one win in 11 league games after conceding the lead to lose 3-2 to West Ham in a London derby. Robert Snodgrass, Felipe Anderson and Javier Hernandez scored for West Ham. BURNLEY BOUNCES BACK Burnley registered its first win in nine league matches. Jack Cork hit a shot and the ball went in off James Tarkowski's chest to give Burnley a 1-0 victory over Brighton......»»

Wilder sees missed opportunity in first viewing of Fury draw

By Brian Mahoney, Associated Press NEW YORK (AP) — Deontay Wilder fired his right hand out from his body, demonstrating the way he should have punched Tyson Fury. He was frustrated with the referee. Disappointed in Floyd Mayweather Jr. Angry with Showtime's scorer. Mostly, Wilder was mad at himself. Five days later, the WBC heavyweight champion was still bothered by the way he fought in his draw with Fury on Saturday night in Los Angeles. "Fury was everything I expected him to be. It's not what Fury did, it's what I didn't do," Wilder said Thursday. "You seen the best of Fury, you didn't see the best of me. "I wanted to end the show with a devastating knockout and I got too excited." Wilder (40-0-1) watched the full fight for the first time during a lunch that was used to provide footage for an all-access look at the fight that will run Saturday after Showtime airs the replay. He was still amazed that Fury got up from a powerful combination that sent him flat on his back in the 12th round, but believed Fury (27-0-1) benefited from a break from referee Jack Reiss. "Look at him! Niiiiine," Wilder said, imitating what he felt was a dramatically long count from Reiss to allow Fury to get up and finish the fight. Still, Wilder believed the knockdown, his second of the fight, had allowed him to clinch the victory. He said he didn't regret not trying harder to finish Fury afterward, because he thought the win was secured. "If it was close, that knockdown, I feel like it put me on top," Wilder said. Only one of the judges agreed, with one scoring the bout for Fury and another having it 113-113. That was much closer than Showtime scorer Steve Farhood, who gave only one of the first eight rounds to Wilder on his card that fans watching the fight could see after each round. "Someone has got to explain to me why this is supposedly a Tyson Fury round," promoter Lou DiBella said after watching the end of one of those early rounds. Mayweather was even harsher to the champion, giving him none of the first five rounds when he was interviewed in the arena between rounds. Wilder said he had no relationship with Mayweather but implied the retired former champion was insecure any time there was too much attention on another American fighter. Wilder agreed it was a close, tough fight to score, but only because he allowed it to be. Headlining a pay-per-view for the first time on perhaps the biggest night in years for American heavyweight boxing, Wilder wanted to deliver something spectacular and the moment got to him. "I abandoned the whole game plan," Wilder said. "That was a mistake on my behalf. Like I said, I just wanted to get in there and just knock him out. I mean I wanted to end the show in a devastating way. That was the whole thing going through my mind. I couldn't clear it out of my mind for some reason. I couldn't. "The atmosphere was so heavy and I finally had the attention that I deserved and there was only one thing on my mind, was to knock him out. But that's what I do anyway. It was crazy. Every time I was going back to the corner I was telling myself just calm down, but I couldn't get out of that element." He became animated watching the replay when he saw times a straight punch would have caught Fury, who kept trying to duck down low, but instead rushed an over-the-top shot that missed. "See that ... right there! All I had to do was straight 'pop!'" Wilder said. "He's right here and I'm still overthrowing it while he's at a pause right here, bending over." But the mistakes could provide a learning experience for a rematch Wilder insists will happen. He said he will try to gain a significant amount of weight, with a goal of 245 pounds after he came in at 209 on Saturday. He's open to fighting Fury anywhere, even in Britain, though his preferences would be Las Vegas or Barclays Center in New York. Wilder couldn't take Fury out the first time, but figures he at least did enough damage to soften him up for the second. "I don't think he's going to be the same, especially going into a rematch and getting hit like that," Wilder said. "I know my power and I know what I can do.".....»»
