Hontiveros exposes alleged P2-B profit from NFA ‘tara’ system

Outgoing National Food Authority (NFA) administrator Jason Aquino is not off the hook yet.   In a privilege speech on Monday, opposition Senator Risa Hontiveros accused Aquino of being allegedly at the "center" of "massive corruption" in the NFA.   From the "tara" system alone, Hontiveros estimated that some P2 billion profit a year allegedly went to certain people.   "Mr. President, paano kumikita ang administrator dito? Simple. Ang kalakarang tara per bag ay between P100 to P150 -- P100 kung kaibigan ka, P150 kung 'di kayo masyadong close. Gawin na nating P100," she said.   (Mr. President, how does the administrator earn from this? Simple...Keep on reading: Hontiveros exposes alleged P2-B profit from NFA ‘tara’ system.....»»

UAAP: NU s Dave I: I think I made the right decision, Coach Tab

After averaging 17.5 points in his first two games in the UAAP Seniors, Dave Ildefonso was shackled down to just four points on Saturday. “Lakas ng katawan ni Thirdy [Ravena] e. Maganda yung game plan talaga nila,” he told reporters post-game after National University succumbed to Ateneo de Manila University, 46-72. Of course, Ildefonso’s worst game thus far in the Seniors had to come against Ateneo, the very same school he left. As it turns out, the Blue Eagles really saw to that. “I think that we wanted Dave to rethink that decision,” head coach Tab Baldwin in an earlier interview. For the past three years, Ildefonso had worn the blue and white as a Blue Eaglet and in his last season there, won a championship. And so, Katipunan’s Seniors squad did its all to keep the graduating players from that championship core – Ildefonso, SJ Belangel, Jason Credo, Joaqui Manuel – together. Only Belangel and Credo stayed in Ateneo, however, while Ildefonso and Manuel transferred to NU and De La Salle University, respectively. Even so, Ildefonso said he has no regrets about his transfer. “I don’t think I made the wrong decision in switching schools. Whatever statement they were sending me, I didn’t get it,” he said after being told about Coach Tab’s words. The super rookie went on to re-emphasize that he wanted to make an immediate impact for whichever team he was joining – and he wouldn’t have been able to do that with the fully loaded defending champion Blue Eagles. “Isipin mo, si SJ, limited minutes. Kung nag-stay ako dun, mas lalo na ako, mas limited,” he shared. He then continued, “I think I made the right decision, Coach Tab, and I’ll see you soon.” Looking at the stat sheet, Belangel, the top senior of the most recent graduating class, only played 12 minutes for Ateneo. Still, Ildefonso made it clear that he harbors no ill will towards his former school. Asked if he’s looking forward to the next NU-Ateneo matchup, he answered, “I’m not thinking about that. I’m just thinking about Adamson next and trying to bounce back.” Indeed, all that’s on the mind of the 18-year-old is moving forward from his four-point performance. “Part din naman ‘to ng (buhay) ng athletes, ups and downs. Babawi naman talaga ako,” he said. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

Carlo Aquino explains why he visited Angelica Panganiban with his parents

Carlo Aquino explained that his visit to Angelica Panganiban's home with his parents was purely coincidental. The actor said his parents just happened to pick him up from the airport after his trip to Thailand.

Aquino also said his parents wanted to see Panganiban's home since they hadn't been there before. Everything worked out in the end since the "Exes Baggage" star said he had been meaning to visit Panganiban's mother as well, but had been unable to due to circumstances.

ONE Championship: Rene Catalan still won t fight a fellow Filipino, not even for a championship

Veteran martial artist and ONE Championship strawweight contender Rene Catalan is standing his ground with regards to his statement about not wanting to fight a fellow Filipino.  In an interview with ONE Championship back in August, the former Asian Games Gold Medalist in Wushu stated that he'd rather not fight a fellow Filipino, regardless of the stakes.  Back then, Catalan and fellow pinoy strawweight contender Joshua Pacio were thought to be on a collision course, with both having put together respective winning streaks.  "I’d rather not face a fellow Filipino.” said Catalan. “Since 2003, I’ve been representing for the Philippines, and until now, I try to avoid having to compete against one of my countrymen.”  Both Catalan and Pacio were coming off impressive wins in Manila, but it was Pacio who was rewared the opportunity for the championship. The Team Lakay strawweight standout will challenge reigning ONE Championship Strawweight World Champion Yoshitaka Naito at ONE: Conquest of Heroes in Jakarta, Indonesia.  When asked about the possiblity of having to face Pacio with a world title on the line, Catalan's answer didn't change.  "Ibibigay ko na siguro kay Joshua 'yun," the 39-year old said. "Kung manalo siya, maraming foreigner na mag-hahabol sa kanya at sa belt. Andiyan si Hayato Suzuki, si Alex Silva, marami."  Catalan is also in Jakarta, cornering prized pupil Jomary Torres as she takes on Indonesia's own Priscilla Hertati Lumban Gaol.  "Naniniwala ako na may time din ako." he added.  Catalan even hinted at playing gatekeeper for Pacio, should the Baguio-based fighter pull off a victory on Saturday night.  "Pwedeng ako yung kalabanin nung mga ibang challenger, pero hindi talaga natin kakalabanin yung kababayan natin."  "Yung kapwa natin Pilipino, tutulungan dapat natin." he added.  Catalan was slated to meet Japanese submission specialist Hayato Suzuki at ONE's return to Bangkok in October, but had to pull out due to an ankle injury.  Taking Catalan's place against Suzuki will be his younger brother Robin.  Before anything else of course, Pacio will have to take care of business against Naito.  Saturday's main event will be a rematch of their 2016 title bout which saw Naito defeat Pacio in the third round via submission.    Catch ONE Championship: Conquest of Heroes on Saturday, September 22nd at 10:30 PM LIVE on ABS-CBN S+A channel 23! .....»»

ONE Championship: Eduard Folayang relishing opportunity to train in US

For the last month or so, former ONE Lightweight World Champion Eduard Folayang has been putting in work in one of the most renowned mixed martial arts gyms in the world, the Jackson-Wink MMA Academy in Albuquerque, New Mexico.  There, Folayang has been able to work with the likes of world champion producing mentors like Greg Jackson, Mike Winklejohn, and Brandon Gibson, as well was train with the likes of world-class MMA stars such as Carlos Condit, Holly Holm, Diego Sanchez, Michelle Waterson, and more.          View this post on Instagram                   One thing can change everything. A win. A loss. A smart decision. A bad review. A season of success. A season of failure. The color of your skin. According to the world, at least, it seems that one thing can determine who u are-or make u question it. #TimTebow Learning from the great @gregjacksonmma #jacksonwinkmma #teamlakay2018 #onechampionship @the.landslide @jayanthony714 A post shared by Eduard Landslide Folayang (@the.landslide) on Sep 7, 2018 at 1:10pm PDT           View this post on Instagram                   Selfie with the “natural born killer” @carloscondit to wrap the day😉 @jacksonwink_mma @onechampionship @the.landslide A post shared by Eduard Landslide Folayang (@the.landslide) on Aug 28, 2018 at 6:19pm PDT            View this post on Instagram                   “The Preacher’s daughter” @hollyholm #jacksonwinkmma #landslide2018 #albuquerque #newmexico #roadtoredemption @jayanthony714 A post shared by Eduard Landslide Folayang (@the.landslide) on Sep 13, 2018 at 11:42am PDT A proud representative of the Benguet-based Team Lakay stable - which has been regarded as one of the best MMA teams in Asia - Folayang has relished the opportunity of being able to learn and train in one of the most decorated gyms in the world.  The Jackson-Wink MMA Academy of course, has also been home to world champions such as Georges St-Pierre, Jon Jones, Rashad Evans, and many others.  "It was a good experience, I learned a lot of things, especially in the areas where we are still growing and learning, like the wrestling and the ground game." Folayang shared with ABS-CBN's Steve Angeles.  "Of course we also sharpened my striking." added Folayang, who's known for his thunderous punches, kicks, and elbows.  "Napaka-ganda, nabu-boost yung confidence, lalo na pag nakikipag-sabayan ka sa training sa mga nakikita mo na mga malalaki yung pangalan sa MMA, and you experience na makipag-laro sa mga nandito, so it’s really a big experience and a big learning lesson for me." he added.  Considered as the face of Philippine MMA, Folayang has been competing in MMA professionally since 2007, getting his start in the Philippine-based promotion URCC. Folayang was also one of the pioneer members of the Singaporean-based Asian MMA juggernaut ONE Championship, which held their first event in 2011, with Folayang as one of the featured stars.  In 2016, five years after debuting for the promotion, Folayang finally captured the ONE Championship Lightweight World title, defeating Japanese MMA legend and long-time champion Shinya Aoki via third-round TKO.  Folayang would defend the title successfully once, before losing to Martin Nguyen just a day shy of a year after winning the championship.  Since then, Folayang has bounced back impressively, picking up two consecutive wins against a pair of tough, unbeaten Russian grapplers.  The 33-year old Folayang is considered as one of the top contenders in the lightweight division, and could be next in line to challenge Nguyen for the title.  While there's no word yet on what's next for the Team Lakay star, Folayang maintains that it's best to be prepared just in case the call for a world title shot comes once again.  "I’m hoping that I can be able to regain what I had lost, so the best thing to do right now is to prepare, fix those areas where I lack, and sharpen those areas where I am strong." Folayang said. "Yun naman yung pinaka-the best na gagawin kasi wala pa naman yung schedule, hindi natin alam kung kailan darating yung schedule, pero ang pinaka-maganda ay handang-handa tayo whenever the title shot is given, hindi tayo malayo sa pag-kamit ng nawala sa atin." Right now, Folayang is just one of the many willing and deserving contenders in ONE Championship's talent-rich lightweight division.  Names like Aoki, Ev Ting, Timofey Nastyukhin, and Amir Khan are all looking to show that they too are deserving challengers to Nguyen's title.  "There’s a lot, it’s a stacked division in the lightweight division, and yung pinaka-maganda ay nakikita mo kung sino ang umaangat, sino ang nag-iimprove doon sa laban so yung talagang pinaka-magandang gawin talaga ay paghandaan kung sino yung mga magiging kalaban, and then of course you prepare well, kasi anytime they can give you the best." Folayang returns flies back to Manila on Tuesday.    H/T: Steve Angeles, ABS-CBN News  .....»»

Floyd Mayweather Jr. rematch is unfinished business, says Manny Pacquiao

Over the weekend, social media went into a frenzy as Floyd “Money” Mayweather Jr. announced on his Instagram account that he would be coming out of retirement for a rematch with Manny Pacquiao. It was easy to shrug the news off, but then Pacquiao responded on his Instagram with a post of his own and fueling the talks of a potential rematch. As it turns out, the little Instagram back-and-forth could actually turn out to be a legitimate fight announcement.  According to Senior Ring Magazine writer Mike Coppinger, the rematch is already in the advanced stage of negotiations, with the fight being planned for Las Vegas and December 1 or December 8 as target dates. Breaking: Talks for #MayweatherPacquiao2 are in the advanced stages and it’s expected there will be contracts out this week, according to industry sources. Once finalized, the fight will likely land in Las Vegas and two target dates are Dec. 1 and Dec. 8 — Mike Coppinger (@MikeCoppinger) September 17, 2018  In his first interview since the interaction with Mayweather, Pacquiao basically confirmed that the fight is happening.   "Well, he’s announcing his comeback from retirement, so he wants to fight, he challenged me, he wants get my belt." Mayweather has mostly been retired since late-2015, returning to action last year for a big money super-fight with UFC star Conor McGregor. Pacquiao on the other hand, has remained active, save for a brief eight-month retirement perioid in 2016. Last July, Pacquiao captured his eleventh-world championship by defeating Lucas Matthysse for the WBA (Regular) Welterweight World Championship in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Pacquiao himself confirmed that he and Mayweather are indeed in negotiation-mode, without giving away too much information.  "Right now we’re in the middle of negotiations, hoping to finalize that." Pacquiao shared with Dyan Castillejo of ABS-CBN News. "Sa ngayon, pag-uusapan pa yung negotiations, we’re in the middle of negotiations, so hindi pa natin masabi kung kailan or kung ano yung exact date." "I’m always available. I’m always available for him." Pacquiao added.  @mannypacquiao says @FloydMayweather wants his belt and they will continue to discuss details of planned superfight #MP #TMT pic.twitter.com/nZCOW4sByN — DYAN CASTILLEJO (@DYANCASTILLEJO) September 17, 2018 I’m always available for him . @mannypacquiao to @FloydMayweather #MP #TMT pic.twitter.com/5nf01HrZz3 — DYAN CASTILLEJO (@DYANCASTILLEJO) September 17, 2018 If the fight does push through, it will be a highly-anticipated rematch of their 2015 bout, which saw Mayweather emerge victorious via Unanimous Decision after twelve rounds.  For Pacquiao, he feels that he has some unfinished business with the unbeaten fighter, which is why he's pushing for the rematch to happen.  "Ang importante ay matuloy na para makita, para hindi unfinished business yung kaming dalawa. Para bang nanakawan tayo ng panalo and matagal na panahon ang hinintay natin." The eight-division boxing world champion is confident that he can come out with the win this time around.  "Right now, alam ko na yung gagawin ko." As far as his training is concerned, Pacquiao has yet to reveal where he'll be holding camp. For his bout against Matthysse, Pacquiao held camp in his gym in General Santos, with close friend Buboy Fernandez overseeing matters.  "Kung saan man ako mag-training, basta I’ll put myself through strict and disciplined training." the 39-year old boxer-turned-statesman said.      @mannypacquiao on @FloydMayweather as unfinished business pic.twitter.com/YiUU3gdAhI — DYAN CASTILLEJO (@DYANCASTILLEJO) September 17, 2018.....»»

FIBA WORLD CUP: Coach Yeng on his Iran dunk: 'I didn t know na kinukunan pala ako ng video'

Gilas Pilipinas sure had a rough trip to Iran last week. But one of the lighter moments that happened for the national team in the Middle East was head coach Yeng Guiao showing off his incredible dunking skills during one practice prior to Gilas challenging Team Melli in Tehran. [Related: WATCH: Coach Yeng Guiao throws down vicious dunk... on a lowered rim] Coach Yeng was seen throwing down a vicious two-handed reverse slam in Iran. The incredible highlight was captured by guard Paul Lee and was posted on Instagram. Guiao, who's taking over the national team for the moment, was dunking on a lowered rim of course... just in case you didn't pick that one up already. Back in Manila as Gilas prepares for a closed-door game against Qatar in the 2019 FIBA World Cup Asian Qualifiers, coach Yeng addressed his dunk. "Ine-entertain ko lang yung sarili ko while they [Gilas boys] were warming up. I didn't know na kinukunan pala ako ng video," he said. "I was just trying to enjoy that time na... gusto ko maramdaman kung paano umi-slam dunk eh. Nakita ko yung ring, sabi ko samantalahin ko yung pagkakataon," Guiao added. Despite handling the national team in the 2018 Asian Games where they ended up at 5th place, it was coach Yeng's first time coaching in the Asian Qualifiers. While that's a tall order in itself, his first game was against Iran on the road. Him dunking on enemey territory was just his way to calm himself down and ease his nerves a little bit. "It's a good sidelight, because there's humor to that, and siguro it's also something that's going to lighten the atmosphere, to take away some of the pressure," Guiao said. "So ine-enjoy lang namin lahat, enjoy lang namin ang episode na yun," he added.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»
