Remember me

FOR millennia, humans have sought for ways to preserve their dead, perhaps as a way for the bereaved to remember, and for the deceased to be remembered. Since the body also served as a shell for the spirit, it was also believed by many ancient cultures that a well-preserved body, possibly better and purer than it had been in life, guaranteed a person to live beyond death in a comfortable afterlife. An incorrupt body could also be seen as a reflection of the soul: in the Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox faiths, the body of an extraordinarily good person that has been revealed to be intact after death just may place one on the path to sainthood -- a prerequisite being that this body has not been preserved through embalming, but by some miracle. Examples of these saints would be St. Bernadette and Saint Elizabeth, of the Catholic and Orthodox faiths, respectively......»»

Magnolia nears finals, overcomes Ginebra

Chito Victolero and the rest of his Magnolia Hotshots remember things perfectly well, and it is bitter memories against Barangay Ginebra that is driving this upset machine in this side of the PBA Governors' Cup's Final Four. With a defensive game that refuses to budge an inch and an efficient offense that has befuddled the Gin Kings, Magnolia took a 2-0 lead over defending champion Ginebra after a 101-97 victory on Monday night at Smart Araneta Coliseum in Cubao, with the Hotshots getting three match points for redemption. "My players still remember that, we were 2-0 (up) in the Philippine Cup (semifinals last year)," Victolero said. "That is our inspiration---to get that third win. ...Keep on reading: Magnolia nears finals, overcomes Ginebra.....»»

PBA: Gin Kings fell right into Magnolia s trap says Brownlee after Game 1 loss

Brgy. Ginebra is an overwhelming force, the Gin Kings can certainly take over a game in a snap. The reigning two-time champs displayed that kind of explosiveness in Game 1 of the 2018 Governors' Cup semifinals Saturday at the Ynares Center in Antipolo. With Justin Brownle scoring 20 points, the Gin Kings fired 39 points in the opening period to start Manila Clasico. It was all Ginebra. The only problem was it was all Magnolia the rest of the game and the Hotshots actually pulled through for an early 1-0 lead in the best-of-5. "Man, kind of fell into a trap tonight. Give credit to Magnolia, they came out and played an incredible game," import Justin Brownlee said after the Gin Kings dropped the opener. "I think we fell into the trap of playing their game. I think we just gotta get back into playing our game," he added. After an explosive first quarter for Ginebra, Magnolia's signature defense kicked in and dominated the Gin Kings. When that happened, Brownlee felt that Ginebra became a little stubborn and tried to force the issue on offense instead of responding to the Hotshots and turn the game into a defensive struggle. "I think we got dependent on our offense. We didn't focus on our defense anymore," said Ginebra's super import. "I think we juts fell in love with our offense because we were scoring so well. But we gotta remember we're a defense-first team and I think that was just the biggest difference after that first quarter," Brownlee added.     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

Curry injured, Bucks snap Warriors 8-game win streak

By Janie McCauley, Associated Press OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Stephen Curry left with an injury and the Golden State Warriors were unable to recover in a 134-111 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks that snapped their eight-game winning streak Thursday night (Friday, PHL time). Eric Bledsoe scored seven straight points during Milwaukee's big third quarter and finished with 26. Giannis Antetokounmpo added 24 points, nine rebounds and four assists as the Bucks handed the Warriors their first defeat at home this season. The two-time defending NBA champions were already missing All-Star Draymond Green and then lost Curry midway through the third. The two-time NBA MVP strained the adductor muscle in his left leg and went to the locker room shortly thereafter. He did not return. Curry grabbed at his inner thigh after trying to contest Bledsoe's shot in transition at the 6:50 mark of the third. He is expected to have an MRI on Friday (Saturday, PHL time). Klay Thompson led the Warriors with 24 points and Kevin Durant had 17 points, nine assists and seven rebounds. Curry, limited to 51 regular-season games last season because of injuries, scored 10 points in his second straight game below 20 after getting at least 23 points in every game previously — including five 30-point performances and a 51-point outing in three quarters. He dished out six assists in 26 minutes. Malcolm Brogdon scored 20 points and Khris Middleton had 17 and six assists as Milwaukee (9-2) won for the second straight time at Oracle Arena after a 116-107 victory on March 29 (Mar. 30, PHL time). The Bucks outscored the Warriors 41-28 in the third and shot 65 percent inside the arc (43 of 66) overall. Antetokounmpo had 19 points, seven rebounds, three assists, a steal and a block by halftime as the Bucks led 64-51 at the break. Bledsoe hit back-to-back layups to put the Bucks ahead 84-64 midway through the third then answered Curry's jumper with a three-pointer the next time down. Donte DiVincenzo's basket at the 4:06 mark made it 93-69 and coach Steve Kerr called a timeout. Jordan Bell had four points and five rebounds for the Warriors while moving into the starting lineup in place of Green, sidelined after spraining his right foot and toe in the first half of Monday's win over the Grizzlies. Golden State (10-2) is still tied for the second-best start in franchise history behind the 2015-16 team that began 24-0. The Warriors dropped to 6-1 at home. TIP-INS Bucks: Held a 46-38 rebounding advantage. ... Milwaukee made it to the free throw line 19 times and made 15 of those in the first half to a 7-of-8 showing at the stripe by Golden State. ... The Bucks shot 5-of-20 from three-point range in the first half. Warriors: Golden State shot 4-for-15 from deep in the first half and Thompson was the lone player to score in double figures. ... Bell made his 14th career start and first of the season. ... G Shaun Livingston missed his sixth straight game and eighth in the last 10 with a sore right foot. ... Andre Iguodala returned after sitting out Monday (Tuesday, PHL time) against Memphis as a rest day, checking into the game for the first time late in the opening quarter. ... Baron Davis of the 2007 "We Believe" Warriors received a roaring ovation when introduced and shown on the big screen 4:39 before halftime. MOMENT OF SILENCE A moment of silence was held for victims of the mass shooting in Thousand Oaks. Kerr said he is "devastated" for the victims and families in a "horrifying" shooting he read up on Thursday (Friday, PHL time). Of taking time before the game to remember the victims, Kerr is becoming accustomed to doing so. "We had one last week and we're probably going to have one next week," he said. "That's the reality until we do something about it. It's beyond sad." UP NEXT Bucks: At the Los Angeles Clippers on Saturday (Sunday, PHL time) trying to end a two-game losing streak in the series. Warriors: Host Brooklyn on Saturday (Sunday, PHL time) seeking an eighth straight victory against the Nets and seventh in a row at home......»»

Five years after ‘Yolanda,’ Leyte residents remember their loved ones

TACLOBAN CITY --- It takes a lot of strength to bury 11 family members in a single burial ground. But Dr. Clara Rose Brit had to endure the unimaginable. Eleven relatives including her mother, two siblings, cousins, nieces and nephews joined 21 victims of supertyphoon "Yolanda" in the same hollow grounds measuring 12x10 meters inside the family compound in Barangay Salvacion, Palo town, Leyte. The 21 others buried in the same plot were either their neighbors or people swept away to their place by the strongest typhoon to hit inland on Nov. 8, 2013. Every year, it has become a family tradition for the remaining family members to offer a Mass every 8th of November to remember ...Keep on reading: Five years after ‘Yolanda,’ Leyte residents remember their loved ones.....»»

Trump vs. Obama in the final weekend of the midterms

WASHINGTON --- Feuding from a distance, President Donald Trump and former President Barack Obama exchanged tough words Friday as they sought to rally their parties' base voters in the final days before the midterm elections. Obama urged Democrats in Miami to turn against "a politics based on division" and expressed hope that "we will cut through the lies, block out the noise and remember who we are called to be." Trump said in West Virginia he watched Obama's speech aboard Air Force One, reminding some of his most loyal supporters of what he called Obama's broken promises on health care, the freedom of the press and global trade.

Giddy benefactor’s minions give poor star the runaround

Remember Giddy Benefactor who has a sketchy past?   GB seems to have a bottomless well of moolah. Such idle chatter naturally attracted potential business partners who were eager to make a quick buck.   GB, however, is not easily persuaded to part with cash---even if the one doing the pitching is a dazzling celebrity like Vibrant Goddess.   Well, GB is no slobbering fan of VG.   Minions, led by Enterprising Dilettante, made sure VG couldn't penetrate GB's cordon sanitaire. ED is apparently not too fond of VG, either, because of a not-so-pleasant encounter in the past.   ED ordered underlings to give hapless VG the runaround.  ...Keep on reading: Giddy benefactor’s minions give poor star the runaround.....»»

Pangilinan: Remember torture, EJK, calamity victims during ‘Undas,’ too

As Filipinos flock cemeteries and other places to honor their dearly departed, Senator Kiko Pangilinan on Thursday appealed to the public to say prayers for victims of forced disappearance, torture, killings, and calamities as well. Pangilinan said prayers for those victims would also mean support to their families, who have been crying for justice and peace. "As we pray for our departed family and friends on All Souls' Day, let us also remember those who have disappeared, were tortured and killed, victims of extrajudicial killings, fatalities in natural calamities," Pangilinan said in a statement.

BLOGTABLE: What s the secret behind Warriors hot start?

NBA.com blogtable The 7-1 Warriors seem refreshed and rejuvenated, more so than they were at this time last season. What can you attribute to this near-perfect start? * * * Steve Aschburner: How ‘bout a sense of gratitude and the realization that this incredible experience they’re all enjoying isn’t going to last forever? It’d be nice to think the Warriors all realize their specialness is temporary and inevitably will end, either fractiously or through sports’ natural life cycle. These teams that think the expectations and pressure to win represents some sort of burden, well, they haven’t lost in a while and have forgotten what that is like. My sense is Golden State went through the anticipated, earthly challenges of managing their collective greatness and has come out the other side, where they get to enjoy this until, one day, it ends. Because it always ends (aside from Gregg Popovich’s obvious deal with the devil). Shaun Powell: Perhaps deep down, the Warriors realize that there's a decent possibility of change next summer so they're showing a sense of purpose a little earlier than usual. Or maybe the boredom stretch is right around the corner. Also: They're getting a kick out of taking turns lighting up the league. First Steph, then KD, then Klay, each trying to one-up the other. All in fun, of course (at least for the Warriors). John Schuhmann: Talent, of course. At times this season, the Warriors haven't looked that sharp, but Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant have the ability to make something out of nothing more than anybody else in the league. They would have lost in Utah had Durant not kept them close in the first half with his unparalleled ability to simply get buckets. Still, they are defending better than they did last season, when they ranked 28th defensively in October. There's an understanding that they let things slip a little too much last season and Draymond Green said earlier this month that, with the departures of their veteran bigs, there's more to "make work" this year. At the same time, this group knows who they are and how to win. Sekou Smith: Superior talent and exquisite team chemistry make it much easier for the Warriors to flip the switch and remember that they are the universe's best basketball outfit. The moves made around them, however, served as the perfect reminder to coach Steve Kerr's crew that their margin for error isn't as great as it should be. They had to dig out a Game 7 win on the road in the Western Conference finals last season to collect that second straight title and third in the last four seasons. That danger was real. The Warriors don't look like a team interested in testing that fate again. They recognize the importance of controlling their own destiny in their chase for another ring. When you have the firepower they possess in Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson, why not let it loose as early and often as possible, just so there is no doubt as to who is running the league right now. This hot start is a reminder that the dynasty will not slow down anytime soon (at least until there is another parade in Oakland)......»»

Son’s killing of his own mother shocks North Cotabato village

PIGCAWAYAN, North Cotabato -- It came at a time when Filipinos were preparing to remember departed loved ones, two before Halloween parties preceding 'Undas.' A 36-year-old man killed his mother while his father was away working at the farm. Joy Rey Biongan told police he thought his mother was a hog that he would have to slaughter and cook. Chief Insp.
