Truth has many layers

THERE’S an interesting episode in the gospel that tells us that truth indeed has many layers and we just have to be careful with our assertions especially when done as if we already know everything. It’s in the Gospel of St. John, Chapter 7. “Some in the crowd who heard these words of Jesus said, […] The post Truth has many layers appeared first on The Daily Guardian......»»

Where to treat mom and the family today

It's not really just because today, May 13, is Mother's Day that you should treat mom and the family out to dinner. The more compelling reason is that 13 Ubay St., a restaurant named after its address in Quezon City, has a homey ambiance for slow meals and relaxed conversation with the clan, or even with close friends. The truth is, owner Zaza Sarmiento herself comes from a big family---both mom's and dad's side---that holds frequent get-togethers. And since she wanted to apply her culinary education on her own after working as a chef abroad, Sarmiento opened 13 Ubay St. right in her father's ancestral house. Hung on the walls around the spacious dining area are vintage bla...Keep on reading: Where to treat mom and the family today.....»»

Anxiety of mortal thoughts

Why elections fail: a silent majority that remains “too silent,” a young population that’s lazy to vote and a “masa” that’s prone to vote buying. Sorry but it’s the truth, and the incompetent candidates know this so well. Calling the SC’s verdict a “vengeance” is quite inappropriate.

No politics in int’l probe of Dengvaxia mess – senators

  Two senators on Wednesday hailed President Rodrigo Duterte's move to form a panel of foreign experts to probe the Aquino administration's procurement of the dengue vaccine Dengvaxia, and said they hoped that the probe would uncover truth untainted by politics.   "I urge the President to appoint people with proven expertise, probity and objectivity who can investigate in a depoliticized environment and study if there [was] indeed a relationship between the vaccine and the deaths of children injected with Dengvaxia," Sen. JV Ejercito said.   The Aquino administration purchased Dengvaxia for a mass immunization program in 2016.   But the vaccin...Keep on reading: No politics in int’l probe of Dengvaxia mess – senators.....»»

Rondo, Green serve up spicy subplot in NBA playoffs

By Brett Martel, Associated Press NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Rajon Rondo and Draymond Green have won NBA titles and never have been known to shy away from conflict on the court. Now their combustible convergence in the playoffs is providing spicy subplot to the Western Conference semifinal series between New Orleans and Golden State. “We’re here to fight,” Rondo said following New Orleans’ lopsided Game 3 victory that trimmed the Warriors’ series lead to 2-1. “With my guys on the court, I’m going to fight as hard as I can ... and do whatever it takes.” Green and Rondo had to be separated after whistles twice in the first three games — never mind some other antics in the flow of the game — and they’ll be back at it again in one of two pivotal Game 4s to be played on Sunday (Monday, PHL time). The other pits Houston against Utah in a series that the Rockets lead 2-1. The Rondo-Green sideshow is compelling because of what both players mean to their teams. They are not the type of trash-talking, loud-mouths who otherwise play marginal roles. They are accomplished leaders who produce. Rondo had 21 assists in Game 3, while Green nearly had a triple-double with 11 points, 12 rebounds and nine assist. It just so happens they also are renowned for their masterful command of psychological gamesmanship. Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry might have the best perspective; he’s coached them both. Gentry was a Warriors assistant on Golden State’s 2015 championship team and maintains a friendly off-court relationship with Green. “If he’s on your team you love him and if he’s not on your team you despise him — and to me those are the kind of players that I like to have,” Gentry said of Green. “I appreciate who he is and how he plays because he’s all about winning. And if you’re verbally weak, he’s going to take advantage of that.” Warriors coach Steve Kerr calls Green his team’s “heart and soul,” and its “engine.” Kerr also added lightheartedly that the fact Green hasn’t been assessed a technical foul in the postseason is “one of the great stats in this year’s playoffs.” Green bristled at the notion that he started any of the dust-ups with Rondo, insinuating that Rondo was the instigator. He asserted that his awareness of Rondo’s intentions is why he hasn’t been suckered into escalations that could result in a technical foul or ejection. “I’m not an idiot,” Green said. “I can see what they’re trying to accomplish a mile away.” Green added: “At some point, somebody’s got to tell the truth. It ain’t Draymond this time.” But Green has been in the face of other Pelicans players, tangling with All-Star Anthony Davis behind the play in one instance and yelling at the Pelicans’ bench in another. Green’s antics even agitated TNT studio host and former player Charles Barkley, who said he wanted to punch Green in the face. Barkley later apologized for his word choice, if not the sentiment. Pelicans forward Solomon Hill explained that Rondo — accomplished, playoff-savvy veteran that he is — seeks to neutralize Green’s psychological effect by taking on a “big brother” role for the Pelicans. “If somebody’s yelling in your ear, you’re going to get to a point where it’s about respect,” Hill said, referring to Rondo by his nickname, ‘Do.’ “And that’s kind of where ‘Do’ is. ’Do’s like: ‘We’re going to be respected. You’re not going to come out here and dance around and disrespect us as competitors.’” A closer look at Sunday’s (Monday, PHL time) games: WARRIORS AT PELICANS Warriors lead 2-1. Game 4, 3:30 p.m. EDT (3:30am, PHL time) NEED TO KNOW: Although the Warriors lead the series, the Pelicans have not lost at home yet in the playoffs and have improved considerably in each game since losing by 22 in the series opener. New Orleans lost by only five points in Game 2 and then won by 19 when the series shifted to New Orleans. KEEP AN EYE ON: Warriors stars Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Kevin Durant. They combined to miss 36-of-59 shots in Game 3 and will be eager to regain their shooting strokes. “I still don’t think K.D. or Steph was aggressive enough,” Green said. “I’ve said to both of them, I need them to be aggressive. They’re our guys. That’s who we’re going to to get buckets. We need them to be aggressive at all times and they’ll be that way” on Sunday. INJURY UPDATE: Curry will be in his third game back after missing more than a month with a sprained left knee. Kerr said he wasn’t surprised to see Curry’s production dip in his second game back. “Game 2 is always the hardest one after you come back from an injury,” Kerr said, adding that “it just takes some time,” for NBA players to regain their energy, legs and rhythm. PRESSURE IS ON: The Pelicans, who don’t want to go back to the West Coast down 3-1 and on the brink of elimination. “We’ve just got to avoid any kind of letdown,” Gentry said, adding that his players “understand who we’re playing and they understand the situation.” ROCKETS AT JAZZ Rockets lead 2-1. Game 4, 8 p.m. EDT (8am, PHL time) NEED TO KNOW: Following a surprising home loss in Game 2, the Rockets roared back to life in Game 3, picking apart the Jazz on both ends of the court. A fast start, highlighted by a 39-point first quarter, put Houston back on track. The Rockets shot 59 percent from the field before halftime and never looked back. “From the beginning of the game, we made a conscious effort to get stops and offensively push the pace and get shots, and we did that,” Rockets guard James Harden said. KEEP AN EYE ON: Rockets sixth man Eric Gordon has been a tough cover for the Jazz. Gordon broke out for 25 points on 8-of-13 shooting in Game 3, resembling what he did against Utah earlier, averaging 21 points on 48.4 percent shooting in three regular season meetings. ROOKIE STRUGGLES: Utah’s Donovan Mitchell is averaging 16 points on 32 percent shooting in the series while filling in at point guard for Ricky Rubi. He went just 4-of-16 for 10 points in Game 3. “I didn’t really do much,” Mitchell said. “That can’t happen. ... It’s like I would have been better off not showing up — and that’s what I did. I didn’t show up for my teammates. I’ll fix it.” PRESSURE IS ON: The Jazz. A second straight home loss would put Utah in the unenviable position of needing two victories in Houston to stay alive......»»

Petron laid to rest the ghost of a painful defeat with a gutsy stand when it mattered the most. Refusing to wilt under pressure from a determined foe, Petron hammered out a 25-19, 25-20, 22-25, 25-18 victory over F2 Logistics Saturday to bag the Chooks To Go-PSL Grand Prix crown at Smart Araneta Coliseum, ensuring no repeat of the fall that was always at the back of their minds.

ABL: DPoY Balkman on 7-5 Deguara: ‘I can’t wait to see him (again)’

STA. ROSA, LAGUNA – Alab Pilipinas dropped Game 2 of the 2017-2018 Asean Basketball League Finals at home to Mono Vampire. And just like everybody else, Filipino head coach Jimmy Alapag knew the biggest difference between the two teams. “[Sam] Deguara really hurt us tonight. A 30-20 game in a 40-minute game is a heck of a game,” he told reporters post-game. Deguara, Thailand’s 7-foot-5 reinforcement, towered above all of Renaldo Balkman, Lo Domingo, and JR Alabanza to pound in 30 points, 20 rebounds, and five blocks. It was also him who made good on the basket and bonus that proved to be the go-ahead basket for his team. “I thought they did a great job of finding him. We allowed him to establish himself in the pain and every time we did, he made us pay,” Alapag said. “We just gotta be better on Saturday.” Being better in Game 3 of the best-of-five series starts and ends with Balkman, who has done nothing but an admirable job of mixing it up with Deguara’s height and heft. And true to his self, the Filipino team’s reinforcement from Puerto Rico is only looking forward to having another crack at his latest challenge. “I can’t wait to see him on Saturday. He played a good game, that’s all I can say,” he said. He then continued, “But it’s all good, man. Let’s wait to see what happens in Game 3.” If needed, Balkman said he can go another full game without rest. “I’ll play another 40 minutes, that’s how I feel right now. It’s all good,” he said, after collecting 37 points, 12 rebounds, six assists, two blocks, and two steals while playing all 40 minutes of Game 2. Alapag knows his big man is only telling the truth. Asked about not resting Balkman, he answered, “He’s built for it. That’s the least of my concerns.” As always, Game 3 of the ABL Finals will still be LIVE and EXCLUSIVE on S+A, S+A HD, and livestream. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»
