BVR: Barbon-Eslapor, Guzman-Arbasto pairs prevail in Dumaguete

DUMAGUETE CITY -- Babylove Barbon and Genesa Eslapor scored a 21-17, 21-17 victory over Charo Soriano and Bea Tan in an early showdown of women's favorites in the Beach Volleyball Republic On Tour Monday at the Rizal Boulevard sand court here. Using their quickness and court smarts, Barbon and Eslapor of UAAP titleholder University of Santo Tomas were able to pull through against the battle-tested Perlas pair which they fashioned out in front of a huge crowd led by Dumaguete Mayor Felipe Antonio Remollo. Returning to the site of their triumphant 23rd Philippine University Games championship late last month which they hope to replicate in the ninth leg of the tour, Barbon and Eslapor are installed as one of the teams to beat. Former UAAP champions KR Guzman and Krung Arbasto of Tiger Wings opened their championship bid in the men's division with a 21-19, 13-21, 15-12 win over Deanne Neil Depedro and Harold Parcia of USLS in Group B. Based on the warm reception received from the fans on opening day, Dumaguete is a cinch to one of BVR regular venues next year. "Having tournaments in Dumaguete will really boost the development of beach volleyball in this area," said Philippine University Games president Roger Banzuela during Sunday night's welcome dinner. "We like to thank Beach Volleyball Republic founders Bea (Tan) and Charo (Soriano). They have done a good job in promoting the sport in our country," the veteran USLS coach added.  In Group A, Samaa Miyagawa of Japan and Tin Lai of Hong Kong set in motion their title aspirations with a 21-9, 21-8 romp of Cebu's Dij Rodriguez and Dannah Jimenez. In other women's morning matches, Dzi Gervacio and Jen Acain, combining forces for Perlas and Air Force, turned back Dipolog's Angelina Damas and Grace Barrica, 21-16, 21-6, in Group A while Mahriz Cosain and Bianca Lizares of USLS toppec Jennymar Senares and Jennifer Cosas of Bacolod, 23-21, 21-13, in Group B.  Erjane Magdato and Alexa Polidario of UNO-R pinned Dipolog its second loss with a 21-2, 21-10 victory. Efraim Dimaculangan and Rancel Vergara of UST overcame Simon Aguillon and Ralph Savellano of Bacolod, 21-12, 28-26, in Group A. James Buytrago and Edward Camposano of National University scored a 24-22, 22-20 Group B conquest of Foundation University of Dumaguete's Jestorni Tubosa and Jayron Eltanal.  Bacolod bounced back from its first loss with a 24-22, 24-22 win over Dumaguete's Reynald Catipay and Buensuceso Sayson......»»

Violence, adversity experienced in childhood may affect biological aging — study

According to a new study, when children are exposed to violence early in life, pubertal development can happen more quickly, and faster biological aging in turn may be associated with increased symptoms of depression.

Individuals exposed to such forms of violence were seen to have faster pubertal development than those who were not.
