Thousands show up in Bohol drug symposium, Jesus Miracle Crusade takes center stage

BOHOL – Thousands of mostly students and teachers and citizens have attended and participated one of the biggest drug symposia conducted by the influential Jesus Miracle Crusade International Ministry or JMCIM in central Philippines. Dozens of members of the JMCIM led by prayer warrior Danny Cuarteros and wife Sister Jeany travelled all the way from Tuguegarao City in Cagayan province in northern Philippines in bad weather just to be able to hold the symposium in Bohol province for the benefit of the students. The symposium – held at the Mayor Pablo O. Lim Memorial Astrodome &'' was in coordination and partnership with the Department of Education and other stakeholders in Bohol. Valencia town Vice Mayor Jorge Buslon also attended the drug symposium and gave an inspiring message to the huge crowd – students and teachers from Grades 7 to 11 of the Valencia Technical High School headed by Principal Jonas Gabutan. Brother Cuarteros’ daughter, Sister Angel, was one of the lecturers in the symposium and she talked about drug awareness and prevention. The Jesus Miracle Crusade Choir also held a peace concert.  The symposium, dubbed “Holding Nothing Back,” was a big success, according to Brother Cuarteros, following the warm reception and hospitality of the host school and local government officials and the public, especially at a time that the Duterte government launched the second phase of its war against illegal drugs dubbed as “Oplan Taphang” which literally means “Operational Plan Tapok-Hangyo”  Oplan Taphang aims to gather support from the public to help the police in its anti-drugs and anti-criminality campaign in the country. The group of Brother Cuarteros has conducted tens of dozens of crusades and drug symposium across northern Philippines in recent months, and played a key role in other religious activities in the country and abroad. The Philippine National Police, Armed Forces of the Philippines and national government officials, including lawmakers and armed partisan groups, have publicly praised JMCIM for its religious and active advocacy in various issues.    “Hallelujah, praise the lord, through the leading prayers of our beloved and honorable Evangelist Pastor Wilde E. Almeda, the end time prophet of God, we are victorious in Jesus name,” Brother Cuarteros said, referring to the JMCIM founder. (Cebu Examiner) 164&'160;total views, 164&'160;views today.....»»

PBA: 3-0 start big for Blackwater says hulking Stepheson

Blackwater has been a different team in the 2019 PBA Commissioner’s Cup. After finishing a dismal 2-9 in the All-Filipino, the Elite are 3-0 to start the mid-season joust, with no. 2 pick Ray Parks and import Alex Stepheson leading the show. Both players have scored 20 each in all three games and in the case of Stepheson, he’s been dominating on offense and on the boards as well. Stepheson had another 20-20 game, powering through for 26 points and 21 rebounds in Sunday’s win against Columbian. He also had seven blocks for good measure. “It was a tough game, coming off a back-to-back. But we showed a lot of character and played strong at the end,” Stepheson said. “This is a competitive league, so every win and every basket will make a difference. Being 3-0 right now is really big,” he added. Stepheson and Parks are not the only ones getting the job done for Blackwater. In the Elite’s first two games, a third player other than Parks and Stepheson also scored at least 20. Against the Dyip, Allein Maliksi and Mac Belo scored 19 apiece to back up Alex (26 points) and Ray (23 points). “A lot of people stepped up, I think we had like five or six in double figures so it was good team win. I thinl we’re playing well as team, everybody’s contributing,” Stepheson said. “We just try to make a point to share the ball and I tell everybody if they’re open, shoot it. Coach tells everybody the same, don’t hesitate. Everyone’s a good player so we’re just looking for the best shot. If we find it, that person takes it and we’re happy,” he added.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

Raptors on brink of first Finals berth in franchise history

By Steve Aschburner, TORONTO -- Twenty-one would be a very cool number for the Toronto Raptors. Before they get it, though, they’ll need to get one. And one would be beyond cool. Off the charts, historic, potentially transformative and largely indescribable. Twenty-one: That’s how many teams in NBA playoff history will have overcome an 0-2 start to win a best-of-seven series, if the Raptors manage to close out the Milwaukee Bucks in the Eastern Conference finals. Whether it happens in Game 6 Saturday night (Sunday, PHL time) at Scotiabank Arena or in Game 7 back in Milwaukee Monday (Tuesday, PHL time), Toronto would buck outlandish odds -- this is the 289th series to begin with the same team winning the first two games, so we’re talking a seven percent likelihood (20-of-288). [Watch the Playoffs on NBA League Pass for 30% less with this limited time offer! Select Annual package and use code SAVE30 at checkout to redeem] One: That’s all that stands between the Raptors and the first NBA Final appearance in Toronto franchise history. One more victory in the next three days would validate the risks and twists of this 2018-19 season for the Raptors, while exorcising nearly a quarter century’s worth of demons. One little win and Toronto finally will break through, capping a stellar six-year run of promising regular seasons and heartbreaking postseasons. They will have earned, in the face of so much uncertainty, their best shot yet at a championship, even if it means going through the mighty Golden State Warriors. When Raptors president Masai Ujiri traded for star forward Kawhi Leonard, he was gambling not just that Leonard could recover from the right quadriceps injury that scuttled his 2017-18. He was guessing that swapping in Leonard for former All-Star wing DeMar DeRozan could push Toronto to, well, right where they’re at. And he was hoping Leonard, a rent-a-player able to leave this summer in free agency, would enjoy the whole experience enough to let Ujiri pay him $220 million over the next five seasons. It’s impossible to know where things stand on that last front, owing to Leonard’s inscrutability and a decision that’s still six weeks away. But the Raptors never have gotten this far, so there is an opportunity here to be savored, with more potentially to come. “It would be a very, very long summer thinking about what could have been or what you could have done,” guard Fred VanVleet said, framing things a bit negatively after raining 7-of-9 three-pointers on Milwaukee in the 105-99 Game 5 victory. “So we've just got to go out there and have no regrets. … One win away from the Finals sounds pretty good to me.” Sounds a little easier, maybe, than it actually will be. The Raptors are at home for Game 6 and the crowd at Scotiabank crowd, already dialed high, will be able to let it rip without any fear -- immediate fear, anyway -- of failure. But Milwaukee will be desperate. Giannis Antetokounmpo has pledged that his team will not “fold.” And the Bucks have zero interest in a knock-knock year, believing all season that they were good enough to reach and win the championship. They wouldn’t be human if they weren’t shaken by the three consecutive defeats Toronto has dealt them. The Raptors have managed to surround and partially stifle Antetokounmpo, while still firing out enough to bother Milwaukee’s three-point shooters into repeated misfires. The Bucks’ defense has been probed and poked like a cut-rate steak. They resorted again to some uncharacteristic switching in Game 5 but had most of their success inside the arc. Late in the pivotal loss, they got beat for five offensive rebounds, when grabbing two or three might have swung the outcome. “It's win or lose,” coach Mike Budenholzer said Friday (Saturday, PHL time) in a conference call with reporters. “When you win, there are things that [still] are concerning and unsettling that you need to work on and improve. I think there's just enough possessions where there's a couple of rebounds that stand out. “Can we do a little bit better job in some of our activity in certain situations. Offensively, I think at times can our spacing be better and our ball movement be better? But I would say it's like a lot of games. We didn't get it done.” One area in which Budenholzer refuses to budge, dire circumstances be darned, is in his use vs. overuse of Antetokounmpo. The load the Greek Freak carries when he’s on the floor, the activity he generates, leads to fatigue and wear-and-tear that requires regular breathers. Extending his star’s minutes, Budenholzer believes, would lead to less “peak Giannis” rather than more, an inevitable tradeoff of quality over quantity. And the Bucks need every bit of Antetokounmpo’s best, or what’s left of it in their 97th game of the season. “Giannis, it's so impressive what he does and how important he is,” Budenholzer said. “I maintain that him getting appropriate rest, appropriate kind of just a chance to catch his breath, refuel… At the end of the day, you need to be able to produce and perform, including in the fourth quarter.” At the possible end of your season, though, you’ll have plenty of time to refuel if the opponent pounces while your star sits. Said Raptors coach Nick Nurse, in his own teleconference: “It's a ‘whatever it takes’ game. It's an unlimited-minutes night. This is just like any other critical must-win game.” Steve Aschburner has written about the NBA since 1980. You can e-mail him here, find his archive here and follow him on Twitter.
