PVL Open Conference: Lady Eagles on acid test

A new-look Ateneo de Manila University Lady Eagles squad will get their first test before the UAAP wars when they take on seasoned club teams in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Open Conference. New head coach Oliver Almadro, who replaced resigned Tai Bundit after UAAP Season 80, will get his baptism of fire handling arguably the country’s most popular college team in the tournament slated to begin on September 22. After missing out on the UAAP Finals for the first time after six straight appearances, Almadro will begin the Lady Eagles’ rebuilding process together with holdovers from last season’s team. Graduating veteran Bea de Leon and seasoned middle blocker Maddie Madayag are back to lead Ateneo. Kim Gequillana is also back after sitting out the last UAAP season due to an ACL injury. New recruits setter Jaja Maraguinot, sister of former Ateneo open spiker Jho, and Vanessa Gandler will also be put under the microscope as they try to live up to the hype and expectations of Lady Eagles fans. Ateneo skipped the Collegiate Conference ruled by University of the Philippines.   Here is the full Ateneo lineup: Dani Ravena Deanna Wong Jules Samonte Vanessa Gandler Jaja Maraguinot Maddie Madayag Bela Peralta Ponnggay Gaston Kat Tolentino Bea De Leon Kim Gequillana.....»»

PVL: Tigers stake unblemished card

Undefeated University of Sto. Tomas gets an acid test Saturday in a showdown with another top contender Adamson University in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Collegiate Conference men's division at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. Action begins at 9:00 a.m. The Tigers sport a perfect 4-0 win-loss record at the top spot tied with National University. The duo of Joshua Umandal and Manuel Medina are playing consistent this conference, leading UST to an incredible winning run including a straight sets victory over College of St. Benilde week. The Falcons, meanwhile, hope to bounce back from a sorry five-set defeat at the hands of surging Far Eastern University last Wednesday. Adamson saw its four-game winning streak snapped to slide back at second place. In other games, University of the Philippines and NCAA champion University of Perpetual Help collide at 11:00 a.m. while CSB and winless Arellano University meet in the nightcap at 6:00 p.m.   ---      Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

Low levels of omega-3s during pregnancy linked to higher risk of preterm birth

New research has found that pregnant women who have low levels of long-chain omega-3 fatty acids in their first and second trimesters may have a higher risk of early preterm birth. The study, by Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, United States, and Statens Serum Institut in Copenhagen, Denmark, set out to examine the relationship between the blood plasma levels of omega-3 fatty acids (which can be obtained from fish, seafood and fish oil supplements) while pregnant and the subsequent risk of early preterm birth. It has already been hypothesized that a high intake of two of these long-chain omega-3 fatty acids ---eicosapentaenoic acid and docosahexaenoic acid (EPA+DHA) -...Keep on reading: Low levels of omega-3s during pregnancy linked to higher risk of preterm birth.....»»

Scientists in Germany improve malaria drug production

BERLIN --- Scientists in Germany who developed a new way to make a key malaria drug several years ago said Wednesday they have come up with a technique to make the process even more efficient, which should increase global access and reduce the cost. The new procedure refines a method developed in 2012 at the Max Planck Institute to use the waste product from the production of artemisinin, which is extracted from a plant known as sweet wormwood, to produce the drug itself. That involved a new machine that could convert about 40 percent of the waste acid into artemisinin itself, producing more of the drug from what had in the past been discarded. The new procedure uses the plant'...Keep on reading: Scientists in Germany improve malaria drug production.....»»

UAAP VOLLEYBALL: Ateneo gets early test against FEU

A rebuilding Ateneo de Manila University side gets an early acid test when the Lady Eagles battle the veteran-laden Far Eastern University Lady Tamaraws Sunday in 80th UAAP women’s volleyball tournament at the MOA Arena. Game time is at 4:00 p.m. and will air live on ABS-CBN S+A Channel 23, ABS-CBN S+A HD Channel 166, LIGA on SkyCable Channel 86, LIGA HD on SkyCable Channel 183 and via livestream. The Lady Eagles’ heartstrong mantra will be put to the test in probably one of the most challenging season for the Katipunan-based squad in almost a decade. Ateneo is playing limp after losing key players following the departure of hitter Michelle Morente and Gizelle Tan, the decision of top setter Jia Morado to forego her last playing year, Jamie Lavitoria skipping the season because of academic problems and injuries sustained by Kim Gequillana and Ana Gopico during the offseason. The Lady Eagles will pin its hopes on holdovers led by skipper Maddie Madayag, Bea De Leon, Kat Tolentino and Jho Maraguinot as they lead a rebuilding team against a seasoned Lady Tamaraws side in an early rematch of last year’s Final Four. FEU lost Remy Palma after last season and will miss the supposedly last playing year of returning Rosemarie Vargas, who sustained a ruptured Achilles heel tendon. But the Lady Tams, who will be handled by a new coach in George Pascua, still have enough firepower in their bid to end an 11-year title drought. Bernadeth Pons, Jerrili Malabanan, Toni Rose Basas and middles Czarina Carandang and Jeanette Villareal are all expected to deliver for FEU.    .....»»
