Pope visit to Central America highlights church ministry to migrants

GUATEMALA CITY --- When Pope Francis visits Panama this week, he arrives not only as the first Latin American pontiff to visit Central America but as perhaps the world's most prominent advocate for migrants at a time when migration has become a pressing political issue in the region and elsewhere. The Argentine-born son of Italian immigrants has long held the issue dear to his heart and has signaled that it will be a central theme during the trip, which comes as the latest caravan of Central Americans is wending its way toward the US-Mexico frontier and President Donald Trump's promised border wall has led to the longest government shutdown in the country's history.

Trump congratulates Clemson for its perfect season with fast food

By Laurie Kellman, Associated Press WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump paid tribute to college football champion Clemson for winning the national championship at a White House ceremony Monday evening. Trump said he even paid for their meal of "American fast food" because of the partial government shutdown. He did not disclose the tab. "We went off and we ordered American fast food, paid for by me. Lots of hamburgers, lots of pizza," Trump said after returning to the White House from a trip to New Orleans. "I think they'd like it better than anything we could give." "We have some very large people that like eating, so I think we're going to have a little fun," said the president, a fast food-lover himself. Spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said much of the staff that works in the White House residence has been furloughed due to the shutdown, "so the president is personally paying for the event to be catered with some of everyone's favorite fast foods." An impressive — and highly unusual for the White House — smorgasbord greeted the players in the East Room. Silver trays held stacks of wrapped burgers from Wendy's and boxed burgers from McDonald's, including Big Macs. White House paper cups bearing the presidential seal held the fries. He was serious.— Taylor Mason (@taylomason) January 14, 2019 Better pics of the feast 🕯🍔 🍟— Taylor Mason (@taylomason) January 14, 2019 Pizzas, some topped with olives and tomatoes, also were on the menu. Silver bowls held the condiments and stacks of white china plates sat nearby. The Clemson team's visit is its second since Trump took office. The Tigers last visited in June 2017 after their championship run the previous season. Clemson coach Dabo Swinney has nominated this season's undefeated Tigers as the best college team ever. Trump calls them a "great team, an unbelievable team." Trump has routinely sparred with professional athletes during his two years in office. College football has managed to avoid such political controversies, with last year's champion Alabama also visiting the White House......»»

Le Tour rescheduled to June for SEAG preps, rehabilitation of calamity-hit Bicol Region

The organizer of the Le Tour de Filipinas (LTdF) has sought for the rescheduling of the race’s 10th edition in its effort to actively join preparations for the country’s hosting of the 30th Southeast Asian Games and to allow adequate time for the rehabilitation of calamity-stricken provinces in the Bicol Region. UBE Media Inc. President Donna Lina said the LTdF was originally scheduled for February 17 to 21 — this time as a five-stage race from the previous four stages to level up in its first decade. But because of the country’s hosting of the SEA Games from November 30 to December 11 also this year, Lina stressed the LTdF’s role in helping prepare the country’s top riders for the biennial multi-sport regional competitions that the country is hosting only for the fourth time after 1981, 1991 and 2005. UBE Media has written the International Cycling Union or UCI, the world governing body for cycling, through the Asian Cycling Confederation and PhilCycling under President Rep. Abraham Tolentino and Chairman Bert Lina to move the race to June 14 to 18. “The Le Tour organization wanted to help harness our cyclists to their best possible condition in time for the SEA Games,” Lina said. “And because of the recent calamity that struck Camarines Sur, Albay, Sorsogon and the rest of the Bicol Region, it has become more imperative that we postpone the race.” Albay, Camarines Sur and Sorsogon were declared under a state of calamity because of tropical depression Usman, which caused landslides and massive flooding in areas where the LTdF’s 10th editon would specifically pass through, particularly in the town of Sagnay which was badly hit. “In as much as we are ecstatic to celebrate 10 years of the Le Tour, we are one in prayers that our countrymen in the Bicol Region recover fast and well from the calamity,” Lina said. Last year, the LTdF was moved from February to late May after Mayon Volcano’s eruption in January. This year’s LTdF will start in Tagaytay City, main hub of all cycling disciplines—road, mountain bike and BMX—for the SEA Games—and will pass through Batangas, Quezon, Camarines Norte, Camarines Sur, Albay and Sorsogon. Legaspi City will host the finish of the five-stage Category 2.2 UCI Asia Tour race. June will be a busy month for Philippine cycling with the conduct of the PhilCycling National Championships for Road, MTB and BMX and a proposed UCI National Commissaires’ Course for the three disciplines. The LTdF and national championships will principally cap trials for the selection of athletes for the SEA Games. El Joshua Carino of Philippine Navy-Standard Insurance is expected to defend his crown and will be racing alongside 2014 winner Mark John Lexer Galedo of continental team 7-Eleven Cliqq Roadbike Philippines. Newly-minted continental team Go For Gold and the National Under-23 Team of the PhilCycling are also seeing action......»»
