North Korea and China in ice dance to the music of diplomacy

At the climax of a festival on ice to celebrate late North Korean leader Kim Jong Il on Friday, Olympic skaters from the host nation and neighboring China swapped partners to dance together.

Sara Duterte, Hugpong kick off campaign where father won big

President Rodrigo Duterte was nowhere to be found when senatorial candidates supporting his administration launched their campaign on Tuesday in vote-rich Pampanga, a province that gave him a "landslide victory" in 2016. But his daughter, Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte, attended the campaign kickoff of senatorial aspirants of her political party, Hugpong ng Pagbabago (HNP), in the City of San Fernando. The rally drew some 20,000 people and stalled traffic around the venue in the Pampanga capital. Mayor Duterte told that her father would not be present during the event, saying he had more important things to do as President.

NCAA Season 94: Para kay coach Nes –- Javier

Arellano University head coach Obet Javier was teary-eyed as he mentioned the name of the late legendary volleyball mentor Nes Pamilar during the Lady Chiefs post-game interview moments after completing a grand slam in the NCAA Season 94 women’s volleyball competition.   “Itong game na ito kung mapapansin natin one month ni Coach Nes ngayon eh,” said Javier, whose squad beat University of Perpetual Help, 22-25, 25-15, 25-18, 25-18, Tuesday in the decider of the best-of-three Finals series at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan.  “Itong game na ito inaalay ko talaga sa kanya.” The multi-titled Pamilar died due to heart failure exactly a month ago. Javier worked as one of Pamilar’s most trusted deputies with his club teams Power Smashers and Tacloban in the Premier Volleyball League. Arellano U's title conquests have been a bittersweet experience for Javier. The Legarda-based squad reclaimed the crown it lost in 2016 in Season 92 just two weeks after he lost his wife, Amy Marie, to cancer while the Lady Chiefs dedicated their second straight title last year to another legandary coach Kid Santos, father of Javier's lieutenant  Mike, who died November 2017 from cardiac arrest.      The Lady Chiefs won their fourth crown in five years and became the third winningest team in the league behind San Sebastian College (23) and Letran (8). Arellano U surpassed Perpetual, which earned three titles from a three-peat feat it did from Seasons 87 to 89.        The Lady Chief have cemented their dynastic rule in the NCAA but head coach Javier is not resting on their laurels. “Sinasabi nyo nga na dynasty, pilit naming panghahawakan kasi minsan lang dumating sa isang team ‘yan eh,” he said. “Hangga’t maari di namin dapat pakawalan.” “Continue pa rin kami, hindi porke’t nag-three-peat kami hihinto kami,” Javier said. “Patuloy kaming mag-aaral, magi-improve dapat para sa school sa susunod na taon.”     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

PBA: Kevin Alas undergoes successful surgery anew

A week after re-tearing his right knee at the Ynares Center last Feb. 2, NLEX Road Warriors guard Kevin Alas went under the knife Saturday evening and the operation was a success, said Louie Alas, Kevin's father. The older Alas also added that his son requested to stay a couple of days more in the hospital since the area still felt excruciating pain, especially after the anesthetic had worn off. "Usually kasi ano yan eh, yung procedure na yan, pagkatapos pwede ka nang lumabas. Pero naexperience na namin last year, sabi ko after six hours, sobrang sakit nung wala na yung anesthesia," shared Coach Louie. "So inanticipate ko na, sabi ko mag-ano ka na lang, pa-admit ka nalang ng one to two days para at least may mga pain reliever ditong ready." The Phoenix mentor also shared that his son is in a positive mood, though still feeling the ill effects of the surgery. "Okay naman siya. He’s in high spirit na. Ayaw lang kumain," Alas said. The former Letran guard, who just played five games into the season after tearing his ACL for the first time March 2018, will be beginning therapy once again in two weeks' time. However, due to the incident, Kevin could not be reached for comments the past days since he did not want to discuss basketball. Despite that, the older Alas thinks his son could have followed the recently-concluded game, which saw Phoenix lose their first game of the Philippine Cup against Rain or Shine in overtime, 98-94. __ Follow this writer on Twitter, @philipptionary. .....»»

UAAP Season 81: Ayokong makilala ng tao na kapatid lang ni Ate EJ -- Eya Laure

Celebrated rookie Eya Laure hopes to make waves in the collegiate ranks and prove her worth as part of University of Sto. Tomas’ volleyball team. A multi-awarded player in high school, she is determined to make her own mark and step out of the shadows of her sister EJ and her father, former PBA player Eddie Laure come the UAAP Season 81 women’s volleyball tournament. “Super excited kasi syempre ayoko rin naman makilala ng tao as kapatid lang ni Ate EJ or anak ni Daddy ganyan,” said the former UAAP girl's volleyball Most Valuable Player. “Gusto ko rin naman makilala kahit papano ng tao kung ano talaga kayang gawin ng isang Eya Laure and ma-perform,” said Laure, a versatile player who has collected recognitions both as a setter and a wing spiker. “Siyempre, ayokong andun lang ako sa shadow nilang dalawa.” Arguably, this season’s finest recruit, Laure gave a glimpse of what she can offer on the table during the pre-season including helping the Tigresses capture the UniGames crown.       A feisty competitor, passionate with high volleyball IQ and undeniable charisma, Laure could complement another fierce Tigress in Sisi Rondina, who is hoping to leave a winning legacy in her swan song. With Eya Laure on board to help Rondina and last year’s Rookie of the Year Milena Alessandrini on offense, the season looks bright for UST to end a nine-year title drought.     “Ako naman siguro it's an honor na rin na maglalaro ako for UST and matutulungan ko yung seniors team din, gagawin ko talaga yung best ko na matulungan sila every game,” she said. Laure is a favorite among fans and pundits but is quick to deflect the tag as a shoo-in for the Rookie of the Year award – the recognition her sister EJ captured back in Season 77. “Ewan ko ha. Hindi ko siya priority talaga eh, I mean ‘yung pagiging Rookie of the Year big deal siguro sa ibang tao pero sa akin,” said Laure. “Hindi kasi siya ganun ka big deal (sa akin) kasi more on andun kasi ako sa bigger picture, na mas madaming matutuwa kung mag-champion kami or magka-place kami this year. ‘Yun ang mas okay sa akin, sa kung saan mas maraming masaya, hindi yung ako lang ang masaya.” Unfortunately, the much-awaited team up of the Laure sisters won’t materialize this year as EJ skipped action for the second straight season following a long layoff after suffering a shoulder injury two years ago.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

FULL CIRCLE: Once a student of the arts, Pinoy Taekwondo star Japoy Lizardo is now a teacher

Japoy Lizardo could not help but smile as he recounted his sports journey during the official launch of the 2019 Milo Summer Sports Clinic, Thursday morning at the Milo Stadium in KidZania, Bonifacio Global City.  Japoy Lizardo and his son Jace on the stage now. Lizardo says he also wants his son to experience what he did in the Milo Summer Sports Clinics as well. | @abscbnsports — Santino Honasan🎈 (@honasantino) February 7, 2019 Lizardo shared that he began as a swimmer, before trying out basketball, and then eventually finding his calling in the martial art of Taekwondo.  From there, the rest was history, as they say.  Lizardo went on to win two gold medals in the Southeast Asian Games, and loads more in the Asian Championships.  But more than the personal accolades, Lizardo shares that it's the values that he's picked up from being an athlete that will stick with him forever.  Now, the 32-year old, while no longer competing on a National level, remains involved with the martial art as a mentor, and he shares the very same lesson to his students as well.  "Sobrang laking naitulong sa akin ng sports, kumbaga sobrang naging malaking part ng buhay ko, actually until now, I’m still doing Taekwondo, I teach kids," he shared. "Sa sports naman, more than the skills, siyempre number one yung skills, kasama na din yung values na matututunan mo sa sports na, lagi ko nga sinasabi sa mga students ko, yung skills, yung pagiging athlete mo, hindi naman permanent yan, pero yung mga matututunan mo through sports, yan yung pang-habang buhay mo na dadalhin." Lizardo was present during the yearly summer program's launch because he serves as an advocate for it, having also gone through the Milo Summer Sports Clinics before. Lizardo, in fact, swears by it.  "Sobrang naging effective nung program for me kasi ito yung nag-establish ng foundation for me, yung basics, yung sports," he explained. "Pagka-nakapasok ka ng MILO Sports Clinics, dun mo malalaman na there’s a technique pala kuing paano maging effective yung isang sipa or yung isang bagay." "Yung MILO Sports Clinic, nakatulong din sa akin, sa guidance, hindi lang sa sports kundi pati dun sa mga values na natututunan ko, I think more than the skills nga, yun yung isa sa mga parang kung bakit ako nandito parin sa taekwondo. Marami tayong mga challenges na mararanasan sa sports na minsan gusto na natin mag-quit, pero dahil dito, na-mold ka, na-train ka kung paano mag-handle ng ganung klaseng challenges," he added.  Now a father himself, Lizardo wants nothing more than to see his two-year old son Jace follow in his and his wife's footsteps. Japoy's wife Janice Lagman is also a decorated Taekwondo practitioner.  Should little Jace decide to be an athlete in other sports however, daddy Japoy knows exaclty who he wants to help mold and develop his son's talents.  "Yung MILO Sports Clinic, isa yan sa known sa Philippines na nagpo-produce ng mga world class athletes, and ako naman, si Jace, siyempre gusto ko rin na yung mag-hahandle sa kanya, hindi man taekwondo, ibang sports man, MILO Summer Sports Clinic parin kasi alam ko na ma-hahandle siya mabuti, ma-gguide siya ng mabuti." Japoy Lizardo and his son Jace on the stage now. Lizardo says he also wants his son to experience what he did in the Milo Summer Sports Clinics as well. | @abscbnsports — Santino Honasan🎈 (@honasantino) February 7, 2019 From being a once participant, Lizardo is now one of the program's hand-picked instructors, and has been for the last three years.  With his journey coming full circle, Lizardo shares that he's nothing but happy to be able to share his experiences and his learnings with the stars of tomorrow.  "Ako naman very blessed din ako, and very happy na right now, I’m coaching yung mga bata. Yung mga natutunan ko before pwede ko ngayon i-apply sa mga students ko ngayon."  .....»»

How Shia LaBeouf turned rehab into a writing room

  PARK CITY, Utah---Shia LaBeouf's latest film was born in an unusual place---a court-ordered rehab.
