Frequently talking with your teen about sex can encourage safe sex later in life

New United States research has found that parents who communicate often and openly with their teens about sex could be encouraging them to practice safer sex later in life. Carried out by Laura Padilla-Walker, a family life professor at Brigham Young University, the new study recruited 468 14 to 18-year-old teenagers and their mothers, plus 311 of their fathers, and followed them over a 10-year period. Although previous research has suggested that parents can be an important source of sex education for their children, Padilla-Walker explains that little is known about how this type of communication changes between parents and children over time, and how these changes may affect...Keep on reading: Frequently talking with your teen about sex can encourage safe sex later in life.....»»

It all started with the story of a thousand cranes

  From the outside, the Marquis building on Rizal Drive, Bonifacio Global City, looks just like any other glass-clad, low-rise structure. Its interiors, however, tell an interesting story---that of the Lim sisters, who wanted to honor their beloved grandfather. In his autobiography, Dr. Lino Edralin Lim recalled the famous story of a young Japanese girl with leukemia who was advised to fold a thousand cranes for her wish to be granted. Although she didn't live to fulfill her vow, her friends continued folding cranes well beyond the targeted number. "By putting up Marquis, we wanted to pay tribute to our grandfather's memory," said Laura Lim Rodrigo. She and her sisters,...Keep on reading: It all started with the story of a thousand cranes.....»»

PVL: Tigresses gun for first semis spot

Unblemished University of Sto. Tomas zeroes in on the first semifinals berth when the Tigresses face College of St. Benilde in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Collegiate Conference at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan Saturday. Game time is at 4:00 p.m. and will air via livestream. UST went off to a hot start, steamrolling past their first three assignments – all NCAA teams - in dominating fashion before crushing UAAP rivals University of the Philippines in four sets. Rookie Eya Laura and Fil-Italian sophomore Milena Alessandrini are playing consistently this conference, leading the Espana-based squad’s offense. But the Tigresses will go up against a resurging team, which is coming off a four-set win over San Beda University last week to enter the win column after starting its campaign with back-to-back losses. The Lady Blazers are currently at fifth spot.     ---   Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

In LA, fresh produce bound for trash helps feed the poor

Delighted to take home food that others would discard, Herlinda Mendoza looks excitedly over the bounty of fresh produce spread out before her. "I like all of it, all of it. The grapes, the onions," Mendoza says in a soft grandmotherly voice as she and her daughter Laura man shopping carts, waiting to fill them up. "You have to be grateful for everything you are given." The women are in a warehouse in a poor neighborhood of Los Angeles, one of many venues where a non-governmental organization called Food Forward is working to salvage some of the mountains of food that Americans throw away every year and give it to the needy.

A new film series asks: Is there a ‘female gaze’ in movies?

NEW YORK (AP) --- An upcoming film series at Lincoln Center asks a provocative question: Is there such a thing as a "female gaze" in movies? The perspective by which women are often seen, sexualized and objectified by men --- consciously or not --- in Hollywood films is known as the "male gaze," a term Laura Mulvey coined in a famous 1975 essay. Movies, where men are so often behind the camera, inevitably render women a certain way. Beginning Friday, "The Female Gaze" will flip the question around with a two-week survey featuring 36 films shot by 23 female cinematographers. The first-of-its-kind series promises to be among the most conversation-starting film retrospectives in r...Keep on reading: A new film series asks: Is there a ‘female gaze’ in movies?.....»»

PVL: Cool Smashers sweep way to breakthrough crown

Crowd-favorite Creamline quenched its thirst for the crown after completing a best-of-three Finals sweep over PayMaya, 25-19, 25-20, 25-11, to rule the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Reinforced Conference Wednesday at the MOA Arena. After a couple of third place finishes in the inaugural season, the Cool Smashers finally captured the elusive title with a dominating series victory over the High Flyers. Creamline's win also handed BanKo the bronze medal after the Perlas Spikers defeated the dethroned Pocari Sweat-Air Force in Game 2 of their battle for third series in four sets. BanKo evened the series 1-1 but took the podium finish by virtiue of higher qoutient. Alyssa Valdez, who won her first title after three years and since winning the defunct V-League Reinforced Conference back in 2015,  led the Cool Smashers with 19 points built on 15 kills, three aces and a kill block. Michele Gumabao and Thai import Kuttika Kaepwin added 12 markers each while American Laura Schaudt had nine. Prized playmaker and Best Setter winner Jia Morado was named Finals Most Valuable Player after tallying 29 excellent sets for the Cool Smashers. Morado averaged 8.7 excellent sets per frame in the Finals.               Creamline played with the same intensity and power it showed when the Cool Smashers took the opening game in four sets, 25-21, 22-25, 25-20, 25-19, ast Sunday and never gave PayMaya a chance to mount any significant resistance. The High Flyers already waved the white flag in the third set after getting buried by as much as 23-9.  Gumabao pushed Creamline at match point, 24-10, before PayMaya saved a point in the next play. Jerrili Malabanan then surrendered the match after sending her service long as the Cool Smashers celebrate their conquest. American Tess Rountree was the only High Flyer in double figures with 12 points while Grethcel Soltones was limited to only six.        --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles  .....»»

Creamline struck the crucial first blow, beating PayMaya in four sets, 25-21, 22-25, 25-20, 25-19, taking a 1-0 lead in the best-of-three championship series of the Premier Volleyball League Reinforced Conference Sunday at Mall of Asia Arena. The Cool Smashers relied on a three-pronged attack that Kuttika Kaewpin spearheaded with 19 points while Alyssa Valdez and Laura Schaudt had 18 and 13 points, respectively. It was still a tight contest through the midway part of the fourth set with Craemline leading 13-11, that was until Valdez started heating up.

We have to be ready sa mga surprises nila -- Valdez on Game 3

Crowd-favorite Creamline braces for a dogfight on Friday when the Cool Smashers march into battle against defending champion Pocari Sweat-Air Force for the last time in Game 3 of the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Reinforced Conference Final Four. Michele Gumabao played big against her former team as the opposite hitter did most of the damage on offense in the Cool Smashers’ four-set win Wednesday that evened the best-of-three semifinals series to one game apiece. The rubber match is scheduled at 2:00 p.m. and will air live on ABS-CBN S+A Channel 23, ABS-CBN S+A HD Channel 166 and via livestream. Gumabao scored a conference-high 18 points while top hitter Alyssa Valdez had 15 markers, 23 digs and 13 excellent receptions in the Cool Smashers’ 25-16, 26-24, 22-25, 25-17, Game 2 win. But Creamline knows that the wounded Lady Warriors won’t be an easy picking in the series decider. “Pero definitely, Air Force will go back and will fight harder on Friday so we have to be ready also sa mga surprises na ipapakita nila,” said Valdez. Pocari Sweat-Air Force surprised the top seed Cool Smashers in the series opener with an emphatic straight sets 25-23, 25-12, 25-23, win with only Valdez scoring in double figures. “We really talked after the game noong Sunday, so we talked kung ano 'yung technicalities na pagkukulang namin, and ano ang pagkukulang namin as a team,” Valdez said. Backing Valdez and Gumabao up are American import Laura Schaudt, Thai import Kuttika Kaewpin, prized setter Jia Morado, Risa Sato and veteran libero Mel Gohing, who is also a recruit from Pocari Sweat. They will take on a seasoned squad bannered by last year’s Finals Most Valuable Player Myla Pablo, Jeanette Panaga and American reinforcements Maddie Palmer and Ari Love. With the series tied and each team parading a solid line up, the ticket to the best-of-three Finals starting on Sunday will all boil down to who wants it more. “Hindi natin masasabi (na nasa amin ang momentum) kasi sabi nga nila bilog ang bola. Kahit anong mangyari momentum man or even sa games or even sa set, hindi mo makukuha yun eh,” said Valdez. “Kung sino ang mas gustong manalo, yun talaga ang mananalo. Kung sinong pabor ang suwerte yun ang mananalo. It’s anybody’s ballgame on Friday.”   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

PVL: Not a bad loss -- Valdez

Top spiker Alyssa Valdez and the whole Creamline crew kept their hopes high despite suffering a straight sets beating at the hands of the defending champion Pocari Sweat-Air Force in Game 1 of the best-of-three Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Reinforced Conference Final Four. Rust from a three-week layoff and difficulty in adjusting with their new import were obvious from the Cool Smashers, a weak point that the Lady Warriors took advantage. Valdez was the only Creamline player in double figures with 16 points in the Cool Smashers’ 23-25, 12-25, 23-25, loss Sunday at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. Creamline was taken out of their comfort zone the whole match but the Tai Bundit-mentored squad remained optimistic of their chances to advance in the championship round. “Natalo, pero it's really not a bad loss for the team. We really have to have and look for that motivation going into Game Two,” said Valdez, who added nine digs. Creamline came off an almost one-month break after claiming the outright Final Four seat. A long layoff that took its toll on the Cool Smashers momentum. “Ang tagal din naming nawala and kailangan din namin ng magfa-fire and magfu-fuel sa amin para makuha 'yung momentum na kailangan naming,” said Valdez. “Sabi nga nila, mas marami kaming matututunan sa mga talo. Hopefully, 'yun 'yung makukuha namin sa talo na 'to.” It also didn’t help that the Cool Smashers had to a adjust with returning American import Laura Schaudt, who replaced Serbian Nina Asceric. Schaudt only had one point in three sets of play. “Laura was there naman last year,” Valdez said. “She knows 'yung goal ng team namin. More than anything, we're gonna accept all the changes and adjustments na needed para maka-survive 'yung team namin.” The Cool Smashers will have their backs against the wall on Wednesday when they try to extend the series and avoid another semis meltdown – a problem that haunted Creamline since last year.           --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

Laura Ingalls Wilder dropped from US book prize over racism

The name of best-selling author Laura Ingalls Wilder has been dropped from an American children's literature award because of racist content in her books based on 19th-century settler childhood in the Midwest. The decision comes with many in the United States reassessing historical and cultural legacies, leading to monuments being taken down and buildings renamed as the country grapples with ongoing racism and discrimination. The Laura Ingalls Wilder Award will now be known as the Children's Literature Legacy Award, the Association for Library Service to Children announced.

ONE: Eustaquio-Moraes title bout moved to Macau, China

After initially being set for Beijing, it has been confirmed that ONE Championship's Pinnacle of Power card will be taking place in Macau instead.  The June 23 card is ONE's third trip to the so-called 'Las Vegas of Asia' and will feature two ONE Championship world title bouts.  Main eventing the card will be China's own ONE Strawweight World Champion Xiong Jing Nan defending her title for the first time against Argentinian Laura Balin, while co-main eventing the card will be Team Lakay star and Interim ONE Championship Flyweight World Champion Geje Eustaquio of the Philippines looking to unify the title against reigning ONE Championship Flyweight World Champion Adriano Moraes.  Eustaquio and Moraes first crossed paths inside a ONE Championship cage back in 2014, with Moraes submitting Eustaquio to claim the vacant ONE Championship Flyweight world title.  Also on the card will be Eustaquio's Team Lakay teammates, featherweight contender Edward Kelly as well as former title contender Danny Kingad.  Team Lakay has been part of ONE Championship's Macau cards since their first trip in 2016, which saw Eduard Folayang, Honorio Banario, and Joshua Pacio all pick up impressive victories.  A year later, Pacio returned to Macau but came up short against Japanese grappling ace Hayato Suzuki.  Macau also played witness to the coming out party of ONE Women's Atomweight contender Jomary Torres, as she shocked the world with a submission win over rising star Rika Ishige.  Macau has also been very good to reigning champion Moraes, who defeated Tilek Batyrov in 2015 to become interim champion, and then defeated Kairat Akhmetov a year later, also in Macau to become the undisputed ONE Flyweight World Champion.    ONE Championship: Pinnacle of Power will emanate for the Studio City Events Center in Macau, China.   .....»»

Team Lakay standout and reigning ONE Championship Interm Flyweight World Champion Geje "Gravity" Eustaquio gets the chance to become an undisputed world champion when he challenges reigning ONE Flyweight World Champion Adriano "Mikinho" Moraes this June. The Eustaquio-Moraes title unification bout is set as one of the headliners on ONE's Pinnacle of Power card set for June 16th in Beijing, China.  Eustaquio (10-6), an entertaining striker fighting out of Baguio City, captured ONE's interim flyweight title back in January after outpointing former titleholder Kairat Akhmetov in a five-round unanimous decision win.  Reigning champion Moraes (17-2), an elite grappler from Brazil, is on his second run as ONE's flyweight king. Moraes defeated Akhmetov back in 2017 to reclaim the title, and is coming off a dominant title defense back in November in Manila, submitting Eustaquio's teammate Danny Kingad in the first round.  This will be Eustaquio and Moraes' second time to meet in a ONE cage, as the two flyweight stars locked horns back in 2014 for the vacant ONE Flyweight world title, with Moraes getting the second round submission win.  ONE Championship also revealed that China's own reigning ONE Women's Flyweight world champion Xiong Jing Nan will be making her first title defense against Argentinian Laura Balin.  Also expected to be on the card are Team Lakay standouts Kingad and Edward Kelly.  .....»»

Balagtas ‘resurrected’ in NCCA-KWP literary camp

The country's foremost poet Francisco Baltazar (Balagtas) was born in Bigaa (a town now named after him), Bulacan Province. He wrote "Florante at Laura," with verses that strike the soul, "Orosman at Zafira" (which has been staged by Rolando Tinio's Teatro Pilipino and Dulaang UP), "Kay Selya" and other poetic gems. Balagtas fell in love with a beautiful maiden named Maria Asuncion Rivera, who gushed over the romantic poems of "Kiko." But Balagtas' courtship aroused the fury of a moneyed rival, one Mariano Capule, who through trumped-up charges managed to have the poet arrested and clapped in jail. And the legend or story is that Balagtas wrote his masterwork "Florante at Laura...Keep on reading: Balagtas ‘resurrected’ in NCCA-KWP literary camp.....»»

Nicklaus cautions from experience against a Masters letdown

By Doug Ferguson, Associated Press Tiger Woods built his comeback around the Masters, as was the case even in healthier years. He took a step back at Augusta National, not breaking par until the final round and finishing 16 shots behind Patrick Reed, the most he has trailed the Masters winner. Woods wasn't alone in his disappointment. Jordan Spieth geared his early part of the year toward being ready for the Masters, the major he says he most wants to win. He had a two-shot lead after the first round, and rounds of 74-71 meant even that closing 64 wasn't enough. Phil Mickelson took himself out of the hunt with a 79 in the second round. Jack Nicklaus can understand how they feel, and his message for anyone who puts so much emphasis on a green jacket is that the show goes on. "I had to learn that there were other tournaments in the country after Augusta," Nicklaus said at the Masters after hitting the ceremonial first tee shot. "I played Augusta a lot of times and lost. I won in '63, '65 and '66, and I just expected to win every year. I thought I would just continue to do that." Nicklaus missed the cut in 1967. He says that started a three-year trend in which it took him longer than it should have to get over not winning the Masters. "That was a humbling experience to miss the cut after you've won it twice in a row," he said. "But then the next couple of years, I think that it probably destroyed the rest of my year. Because I was so disappointed at not winning at Augusta that I had a downer most of the year." There's some truth to that. He didn't go more than two tournaments before winning again after the 1963, 1964 and 1965 Masters. After he repeated at Augusta in 1966, he ran off five consecutive top fives before winning the British Open at Muirfield to complete the career Grand Slam. But after missing the cut in 1967, he went five tournaments without winning and had one stretch of 10 straight rounds in which he failed to break 70. The following year when he tied for fifth at the Masters, Nicklaus didn't win again until the Western Open the first weekend in August. And after a tie for 23rd in the 1969 Masters, he didn't win again until the Sahara Invitational in October. "I put such a buildup to this tournament and the importance of winning that first major that it was to my detriment more times than a positive," he said. Nicklaus figured it out. Over the next four years, he never went more than three events after the Masters before winning again. Twice, in 1971 and 1973, he won in his next start after failing to win the Masters. CURTIS CUP Four years after Lucy Li qualified for the U.S. Women's Open at age 11, the Californian is headed to her first Curtis Cup. Li was among eight women selected for the June 8-10 matches against amateurs from Britain and Ireland at Quaker Ridge in New York. Li is the first 15-year-old to make the American team since Lexi Thompson in 2010. The other Americans selected for the team are UCLA star Lilia Vu, Andrea Lee, Jennifer Kupcho, Kristen Gillman, U.S. Women's Amateur champion Sophia Schubert, Lauren Stephenson and Mariel Galdiano. Lee and Galdiano played in the most recent Curtis Cup, which Britain & Ireland won in Ireland. AS THE WORLD TURNS For the second time since the World Golf Championships began in 1999, the PGA Tour is converting one of its regular tournaments into one of the four WGCs with a big purse ($10 million this year) and a limited field with no cut. Doral had been longest-running PGA Tour event on the Florida Swing until it morphed into the WGC-CA Championship in 2007. Now it's happening in Memphis, Tennessee. Bridgestone chose not to renew its increasingly expensive title sponsorship of the WGC at Firestone, which had hosted an elite event since 1976. Starting next year, the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational will move to the TPC Southwind in Memphis. That will assure the strongest field for Memphis, which dates to 1958. But much like Doral in 2007, it becomes off-limits to PGA Tour regulars. Based on this week's world ranking, only 16 players in the field for the St. Jude Classic last year would be eligible at a World Golf Championship. BALANCE AT THE TOP Each generation believes it had stronger and deeper competition, though there at least appears to be more balance. Perhaps one way to measure that is through Tiger Woods. When he won the 2008 U.S. Open for his 14th major, only seven other players in the top 20 in the world ranking had combined for 13 majors. Phil Mickelson (No. 2), Ernie Els (No. 5) and Vijay Singh (No. 9), each had three majors. Geoff Ogilvy (No. 4), Jim Furyk (No. 10), Padraig Harrington (No. 13) and Trevor Immelman (No. 15) each had one. Just like then, four of the top five in the world have won majors (all but 23-year-old Jon Rahm). However, 12 of the top 20 in the world from this week's rankings have won majors. The top 20 includes Mickelson (now with five majors), Rory McIlroy (four majors), Jordan Spieth (three majors) and Bubba Watson (two majors). Eight other players have won at least one major. It's certainly younger at the top. Woods was 32 when he won his last major, and only three players from the top 10 were in their 20s — Scott, Sergio Garcia and Justin Rose. This week, seven of the top 10 in the world are in their 20s. MANAGEMENT MOVES Jordan Spieth's manager has come full circle and is returning to IMG, and Jay Danzi is bringing his top client with him. Danzi has become a partner with California-based William Morris Endeavor, which owns IMG. Included in the move is Jordan Lewites, who was handling much of Spieth's day-to-day operations, and Laura Moses, who heads up Spieth's foundation. Spieth will be represented by WME and IMG. "Jordan is a world-class talent, and we're excited to welcome him to the family," said Patrick Whitesell, executive chairman of Endeavor. "When you look at what he and Jay have already accomplished and consider WME and IMG's ability to amplify Jordan's reach across entertainment and sports, the possibilities are endless." Danzi previously worked for IMG as global head of recruiting for its golf business. He left the Cleveland-based agency for Wasserman, and then started his own company (Forefront Sports Group) when he signed Spieth. The centerpiece of getting Spieth was a bold endorsement with Under Armour. Lagardere bought Forefront in 2013. Along with managing the three-time major champion, Danzi was in charge of Lagardere's brand consulting, sales and golf consulting groups. He left Lagardere last month. DIVOTS Ted Potter Jr. tied for 16th in the RBC Heritage, notable because he had missed his last five cuts dating to his victory in the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. ... Satoshi Kodaira was the first player without PGA Tour status to win a regular PGA Tour event since Arjun Atwal at the Wyndham Championship in 2010. ... Cameron Smith, a 24-year-old from Australia, tied for 32nd at Hilton Head last week and moved past Jack Nicklaus on the PGA Tour career money list. ... Bryson DeChambeau moved into the top 50 in the world ranking for the first time, at No. 48. ...
