Ilonggo journalists fight hard to decriminalize libel

NEW YORK CITY — In a democratic state like the Philippines, onion-skinned politicians and other known enemies of press freedom use the libel case to harass and intimidate practicing journalists.

UAAP: Kai calls on Eaglets to fight Bullpups fire with their own fire

Ateneo de Manila High School got swept in the elimination round of the UAAP 81 Juniors Basketball Tournament by modern-day rival Nazareth School of National University. However, the Blue Eaglets got a golden opportunity to get back at the Bullpups as the two teams were pitted against one another for all the glory in the Finals. There, Sotto expected one thing and one thing only – for the challengers to their throne to keep bringing it to them. “Alam naman natin na yung NU, talagang physical maglaro,” he said. And that is exactly why, in the Season 81 MVP’s eyes, the defending champions had to bring it right back. “Dapat kami, ‘di kami mag-back down. Talagang i-aaccept namin yung challenge,” he said. He then continued, “Kung maging physical sila, magiging physical din kami. Lalaban din kami.” In the first half and early third quarter of Game 1, Ateneo did just that. Sotto teamed up with twin tower Geo Chiu to power their side to a five-point lead. Only, the Blue Eaglets took their foot off the pedal the rest of the way and never recovered. And in the end, NU took a well-earned 70-58 win and took a 1-0 lead in the best-of-three series. For the 7-foot-1, 16-year-old, it was clear that they fell short of sustaining the physicality needed to match up with the Bullpups. As he put it, “Nandun yung effort, kaso may times na nawawala. Inconsistent kami.” That is exactly what they will be working on as they head into a must-win Game 2 on Friday. There, Sotto had but one promise. “’Di namin basta-basta ibibigay yung championship,” he said, full of confidence. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

UST’s Cherry Rondina grateful to get much-needed help from Eya Laure, Milena Alessandrini

MANILA, Philippines---Gone are the days where Cherry Rondina would carry University of Santo Tomas solely on her shoulders. Rondina was almost a one-person army during the UAAP Season 80 women's volleyball tournament when she had to lift the Golden Tigresses and in a herculean effort that resulted into just four wins against 10 losses in the year. This time, though, Rondina has star rookie Eya Laure and a healthy Milena Alessandrini, Season 80's Rookie of the Year, in UST's campaign in Season 81. Rondina admitted that her responsibility lightened up a bit with the addition of Laure and the return of Alessandrini, who missed four games in 2018 due to an injury.
