Scuba-diving Santa brings holiday cheer to fish, museumgoers

SAN FRANCISCO --- It's a busy time for Santa Claus, but he's making time to feed some fish in San Francisco. The California Academy of Sciences launched its holiday festivities Thursday by having a scuba diver dressed as St. Nick submerge into a coral reef exhibit while dozens of children watched from behind the glass. The "Scuba Santa" show runs through Christmas Day. It takes place during the morning feed at the Philippine Coral Reef tank at the San Francisco museum. Volunteer diver George Bell donned his Santa suit, from hat to coal black boots, and scuba gear for a recent feed and fielded visitors' questions from inside the tank. The Philippine Coral Reef tank has tho...Keep on reading: Scuba-diving Santa brings holiday cheer to fish, museumgoers.....»»

Indie Bravo! Awardees pay tribute to the late Inquirer Entertainment journo Bayani San Diego Jr.

Whenever Filipino movies won awards or got featured in festivals abroad, chances are their directors, producers or actors would wake up the next day to an inbox full of congratulatory messages and requests for interviews from the late Inquirer Entertainment journalist Bayan San Diego Jr., who---until his last day---tirelessly chronicled the journeys and triumphs of our local filmmakers. As the multi-awarded auteur Lav Diaz said in a letter read at the 9th Inquirer Indie Bravo! Awards last Thursday, there's much to be said about Bayani---his kindness, heroism and devotion for Philippine cinema and culture. But there was one thing in particular that seemed to have caught Lav's amuse...Keep on reading: Indie Bravo!

Petron closes in on duplicating historic feat

Games Tuesday: (Mall of Asia Arena) 4:15 p.m. – La Salle-Dasmarinas vs CSA 7:00 p.m. – Petron vs F2 Logistics   The deadly form that made Petron the most successful club team in the country was in full display when it crushed F2 Logistics, 25-23, 25-12, 25-17, in Game 1 of their Philippine Superliga All-Filipino Conference best-of-three finals series Saturday at the Mall of Asia Arena. But for head coach Shaq Delos Santos, the battle is still far from over. Delos Santos said celebration is not yet on their minds as they expect a furious fightback from the Cargo Movers in Game 2 of this prestigious women’s club tourney Tuesday at the same venue. He said F2 Logistics coach Ramil de Jesus is the best in the business in tweaking his gameplan so he expects Game 2 to be another thrilling showcase of high-flying attacks, great defense and nail-biting rallies from both sides. "Kami, think magandang pahinga, recovery, aral uli, pag-aralan namin sila ulit (sila). Siyempre for sure all out sila pero siyempre kami ready para dun,” said Delos Santos, whose wards moved a win shy of sweeping this tourney. Delos Santos sure knows what he’s talking about. In the Grand Prix last year, the Blaze Spikers hammered a convincing Game 1 win, thanks to the firepower of imports Lindsay Stalzer and Hillary Hurley as well as local stars Frances Molina, Aiza Maizo-Pontillas and Mika Reyes. But the Cargo Movers refused to quit. De Jesus shocked his counterpart when he pulled veteran Cha Cruz from the bench to serve as the starting spiker while moving American Kennedy Bryan back to her original position at the opposite spot. The gamble paid a handsome reward when the Cargo Movers crawled back from a 0-2 set lead all the way to a masterful Game 2 victory. Then, they went for the kill in Game 3 to formally clinch the title of this highly competitive tourney. Delos Santos stressed that de Jesus -- an 11-time champion coach for De La Salle University in the University Athletic Association of the Philippines who also has three crowns in the PSL – won’t simply give up.    "Kilala namin sila alam namin trabaho ni coach Ramil especially sa ganyang sitwasyon pero mas magtatrabaho kami this time," said Delos Santos, who drew firepower from bench player Sisi Rondina and former Far Eastern University stars Bernadeth Pons and Remy Palma in Game 1. Rondina delivered 12 points while Pons and Palma chipped in 10 and nine hits, respectively, for the Blaze Spikers, who are on the verge of duplicating a golden sweep of the conference they first achieved three years ago.          .....»»
