Lahar advisory raised over Mt. Bulusan

LEGAZPI CITY---The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) has advised communities living around Bulusan volcano to be vigilant and ready as rains brought by Tropical Depression "Amang" could trigger lahar flow and flash floods.

The erosion of deposits may trigger lahar in Bulusan rivers in the southeastern, southwestern and northeastern portions of the volcano, Phivolcs noted. Communities living near the volcano in Irosin and Juban towns may be affected by lahar flow, the Phivolcs said. ...Keep on reading: Lahar advisory raised over Mt. Bulusan.....»»

Nike launches the most scientific basketball shoe ever made

Say goodbye to the common shoelace. On January 16, 2019 at the Nike Headquarters in New York City, the world’s most iconic sportswear brand presented a new platform called Nike Adapt which aims to deliver digitally powered adjustable footwear across both performance and lifestyle categories. Michael Donaghu, VP of Nike Innovation “Our vision for the future is called ‘Powered Athlete’ - A world in which products are intelligent. I’m pleased to say that the first chapter of intelligent Nike products and experiences begins today,” said Michael Donaghu, VP of Nike Innovation. Imagine a shoe that delivers the precise fit you need, when you need it with a push of a button or the swipe of a phone. That’s the kind of revolutionary technology that Nike Adapt presents to athletes and consumers. The first chapter in this innovation of Nike Adapt will feature the game of basketball. “We chose basketball as the first sport for Nike Adapt intentionally because of the demands that athletes put on their shoes. During a normal basketball game, the athlete’s foot changes, and the ability to quickly change your fit by loosening your shoe to increase blood flow and then tighten again for performance is a key element that we believe will improve the athlete’s experience,” explained Eric Avar, Nike VP Creative Director. Eric Avar, Nike VP Creative Director During the process of creating the shoe, the Nike Adapt BB underwent various tests including using the underfoot lacing to lift 32 pounds of force. It’s as strong as that of a standard parachute cord. “This was the most tested shoe in the history of Nike Basketball,” revealed Ross Klein, Senior Designer of Basketball Footwear Innovation. Ross Klein, Senior Designer of Nike Basketball Footwear Innovation Owners of the Nike Adapt BB will have the ability to customize the fit of the shoe and select not just one setting, but different situations be it warming-up or engaging in the heat of the game via an app which controls the FitAdapt tech embedded in the sole of the shoe. “The app makes the shoe that much easier to use and allows you to evolve and update your shoe over time,” explained Michael Martin, VP of Nike Direct Product. “But, that’s just the beginning of an incredibly rich robust roadmap of additional improvements.” Michael Martin, VP of Nike Direct Product Aside from the power-lacing feature, the app also allows you to change the color of the two lights at the base of the shoe to fit your mood. There are 14 colors to choose from. Now, of course, part of the meticulous process of releasing the Nike Adapt BB to the world was getting elite athletes to test it out. That is exactly what Nike did when they brought the likes of Kyle Kuzma, Luka Doncic, De’Aaron Fox and Jayson Tatum to the Nike World Headquarters in Oregon to take the Nike Adapt BB for a spin. It was one intense workout that Tatum, the sophomore star of the Boston Celtics thoroughly enjoyed. “We might have played 5 or 6 games and everybody was going hard. At first, everybody was just going up and down and breaking a sweat, but then, things started to get serious and we’re all competitors, so, we went at it,” said Tatum. Jayson Tatum, Boston Celtics Tatum will be the first NBA player to wear the Nike Adapt BB in an actual NBA game when the Boston Celtics play the Toronto Raptors in their upcoming match-up. The twenty year old forward has been known for wearing Kyrie Irving and Kobe Bryant signature sneakers but he already considers the Nike Adapt BB as his new favorite pair. “They’re now my favorite basketball shoe of all-time,” said Tatum with a smile. The Nike Adapt BB will be available in the Philippines in February at Nike Park Fort, Titan BGC and titan22.com at Php 17,495.00.  .....»»

UAAP Season 81: UAAP Board looking to switch to FIVB individual awards format

The UAAP Board is highly considering changing its volleyball individual awards format into the FIVB standards in Season 81. Board member Rod Roque revealed that the change in the awarding format will be one of the main topics that the Board will tackle when they convene on Tuesday and Wednesday. Roque is optimistic that the change will be implemented this season. “Well, isa ‘yan sa napag-usapan naming innovations sa volleyball. Sabi namin susundan namin ‘yung international (standard) kasi by position ang international e,” said the UE athletic director. “So we might do it this year. So depende tomorrow kung ma-approve namin ‘yun then we will implement right away kasi mas marami kang mabibigyan kung position e. Pabor sa players mas maganda,” added Roque, who is also the representative of the UAAP in the Larong Volleyball sa Pilipinas, Inc. For the longest time, the UAAP has been feting players by skills: scorer, attacker, blocker, server, setter, digger and receiver as well as the Most Valuable Player. Other local leagues like the NCAA, Philippine Superliga and Premier Volleyball League and UAAP high school have already adapted the FIVB’s by positon individual awards of best two outside hitters, two middle blockers, an opposite hitter, setter, libero and the MVP. “Kami sa eligibility kasi kami ‘yung naga-update ng rules and regulations,” he said. “Sabi namin we follow the international kasi we’re using the international (rules and format) in all sporting events. We might as well do also for the awarding di ba?” Roque is optimistic that the change will be approved as other schools also showed positive response during their previous meetings. “Favorable naman yung response ng walong schools kasi mas maraming mabibigyan ng award e so I think ma-approve ‘yun,” he said. Roque said that it has been on the table years. “Alam mo na ‘yung tradition, tradition we keep on following the tradition, tradition,” sad Roque. “Well hi-tech dapat sumusunod tayo sa panahon, sa trend and that is the trend now we might as well do what is right.”     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»
