UAAP Women s Basketball: Clare Castro leads FEU to Final Four, NU remains perfect

Anchored by Clare Castro's all-around brilliance, the Far Eastern University clinched a Final Four berth after an 80-66 win over the University of the Philippines, Saturday at the Araneta Coliseum. The Lady Tamaraws invested a 12-point lead after the first half but the Lady Maroons tried to fight back. Complacency became an issue by the third quarter for the Lady Tamaraws, but Castro came back and neutralized UP's efforts. This is FEU's ninth victory in 12 games. From sitting out early in their last game versus University of the East due to foul trouble, Castro regained her footing this game with 21 points and 10 rebounds. She was supported by Fatima Quiapo with 15 points, nine rebounds, and five assists. Lady Maroons Lou Ordoveza and Gene Amar produced 15 and 14 points respectively as they drop to their 30th straight loss. Both squads' next games will be played on November 13 at the Blue Eagle Gym. FEU will take on Adamson University while UP will face National University. In the second game, the NU Lady Bulldogs remain perfect and are just two games away from another eliminations sweep. They cruised to an 89-59 victory over the UE Lady Warriors. NU continue to make history as they nab their 76th straight win. Fourth-year Kaye Pingol scored 17 points, four assists, and seven steals. Ria Nabalan and Jack Animam added 16 and 14 markers respectively. Lady Warrior Christine Cortizano's 32-point career-high game was put to waste. She also had 10 rebounds. On November 16 at the Blue Eagle Gym, NU will seek their 13th win this season against UP while UE will face University of Santo Tomas next.

Man wins woman’s weight in beer at wife-carrying contest

NEWRY, Maine (AP) --- Baseball's fall classic focuses on an American pastime. A Maine ski resort has its own fall classic based on a Finnish tradition. More than 30 teams from Maine to California participated Saturday in the North American Wife Carrying Championship. The event at the Sunday River ski resort featured male competitors completing a 278-yard obstacle course while carrying a woman. The legend behind the event is based on Finland's "Ronkainen the Robber," whose gang was known to pillage villages and take the women. Jesse Wall and Christine Arsenault won the event. For their efforts, the South Paris couple received Arsenault's weight in beer, and five times her wei...Keep on reading: Man wins woman’s weight in beer at wife-carrying contest.....»»

Laughter hurts when it’s inappropriate

I caught Christine Blasey Ford on TV the other night testifying in the United States Senate at the confirmation hearing of Judge Brett Kavanaugh, a nominee of President Trump for the Supreme Court. She had accused Kavanaugh of attempted rape when she was 15 and he 17. I was appalled at some of the reactions from people I knew in Facebook.   Some mothers themselves seemed belittling the offense because it happened long ago, when Kavanaugh was only 17, and the rape had been aborted anyway.   I have observed how easier some mothers were on the young boy than on the younger girl. "What was she doing there in the first place? Why hadn't she come out with this sooner?" th...Keep on reading: Laughter hurts when it’s inappropriate.....»»

Well, one: You don't appoint him as US Supreme Court Judge, not only because he was accused of sexual assault, but because of his biased and unprofessional remarks during his hearing with Dr. Christine Blasey Ford. And two: Create a lipstick shade inspired by his hotheadedness and donate all the proceeds to anti-sexual assault organizations.

American Bar Association urges Senate to slow down on Kavanaugh votes

  WASHINGTON --- The American Bar Association (ABA) has urged the Senate Judiciary Committee and the full Senate to slow down on the vote on Brett Kavanaugh for a position on the Supreme Court until the FBI has time to do a full background check on claims of sexual assault against him.   Christine Blasey (blah-zee) Ford and other women have emerged and accused Kavanaugh of sexually attacking them.   "We make this request because of the ABA's respect for the rule of law and due process under law," the ABA letter to committee leadership said. "Each appointment to our nation's highest court (as with all others) is simply too important to rush to a vote." ...Keep on reading: American Bar Association urges Senate to slow down on Kavanaugh votes.....»»
