Ex-‘PBB’ housemate Cora Waddell: Having a baby doesn’t mean you can’t work

  "I still have bills to pay," said model-turned-actress Cora Waddell when the Inquirer asked whether she planned to quit show business now that she was infanticipating. "Just because you have a baby or choose love doesn't mean you can't work. That's crazy!"   Cora said she had no intention of laying low at work, even though she was already five months pregnant. "I hear this a lot. But working moms should be treated the same way. The way society is now, I feel that we're a lot more accepting of people being able to do many things at once," she said during the recent media gathering for her project, Jose Javier Reyes' "Recipe for Love."   She cited as example...Keep on reading: Ex-‘PBB’ housemate Cora Waddell: Having a baby doesn’t mean you can’t work.....»»

Tuchel stands up to player power at PSG, and it worked

By Jerome Pugmire, Associated Press PARIS (AP) — Paris Saint-Germain coach Thomas Tuchel made a bold move by standing up to big names at a club where player power usually rules. He dropped 19-year-old France forward Kylian Mbappe, widely tipped as soccer's next superstar, and midfielder Adrien Rabiot for the game at Marseille on Sunday night. Both players are Parisian-born and fully understood the importance of the match for PSG fans against the club's bitter rival. Yet both turned up late to a pre-match team talk, something Tuchel simply could not excuse and he left them out of the starting lineup. "(It was) a disciplinary situation. We needed to do that," Tuchel said unapologetically on Canal Plus television. "It's like that." Mbappe came off the bench in the second half and scored the first goal in a 2-0 win which sent PSG to an 11th straight league win. It was also the World Cup star's 10th league goal so far, in just seven games for him. Rabiot, who refused to be on France's reserves list for the World Cup and has long been negotiating a new PSG contract, came on about 10 minutes from time. Despite his authoritative decision-making, which was backed by PSG winger Julian Draxler, the coach was surprisingly downbeat and sounded almost despondent after the game. "I don't like playing without Kylian," he said. "I hate it." Tuchel was then was then asked if it was a good day for him as a coach. "For me, personally, no," he said, his head dropping and his voice trailing off. "For me it was quite tough today." It has been a topsy-turvy week for Tuchel, who saw his side fall behind twice and dominated for long spells in a 2-2 home draw with Napoli in the Champions League on Wednesday. That draw leaves PSG third in its group and in danger of not qualifying for the Round of 16. If so, Tuchel would become the first PSG coach knocked out of the group stage since cash-rich Qatari investors QSI took over at the club seven years ago. On the other hand, his team is coasting in the league with 39 goals in 11 games and the best defense. Tuchel has earned praise from the French media for his player management skills, often touted as a counterpoint to his predecessor Unai Emery, but the decision to drop Mbappe seemed to weigh heavily on him. Perhaps with good reason, for it puts him in a potentially difficult position because star players often have their own way at PSG. Such is the club's desire to win the Champions League and join Europe's elite, some players have been seemingly indulged. Zlatan Ibrahimovic, for example, was allowed days off to go hunting in the forests of his native Sweden. Others, such as Edinson Cavani and Javier Pastore, returned late from the mid-season winter break — which even led to public criticism from their own captain, Thiago Silva. Pampering stars has not had the necessary outcome, either, with PSG unable to get beyond the quarterfinals of the Champions League since QSI took over. In the last two years, PSG has failed to reach the quarters, leading to Emery's departure and Tuchel's arrival. Despite his friendly and easy-going appearance, Tuchel is a disciplinarian and firm on principles such as cutting out sugary drinks on the team bus and strict time-keeping. At a club with such lofty ambitions, these should be rudimentary. Yet the way Mbappe was comforted before Sunday's game, even by the vastly experienced goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon, suggests he got the sympathy vote rather than Tuchel getting the understanding. Even Tuchel seemed anxiously keen to encourage Mbappe before the teenage forward went on in the 62nd minute, wrapping a consoling arm around him as if to apologize for the sanction. Still, Tuchel was at least supported by Draxler, who scored the second goal against Marseille. "It's something between the coach and the player, but for me it's clear the club is more important than a single player," Draxler said. "The coach will decide what he wants and we won, so he's right.".....»»

NCAA: LSGH wraps up best elims finish in school history

STANDINGS LSGH 16-2 (twice-to-beat) MAPUA 14-4 (twice-to-beat) SAN BEDA 12-6 (Final Four) JRU 11-7 (Final Four) LPU 9-9 (eliminated) PERPETUAL 9-9 (eliminated) ARELLANO 7-11 (eliminated) SAN SEBASTIAN 5-13 (eliminated) LETRAN 4-14 (eliminated) EAC 3-15 (eliminated) For the first time in school history, College of St. Benilde-La Salle Greenhills will be entering the Final Four of the NCAA 94 Juniors Basketball Tournament with a twice-to-beat advantage. More than that, also for the first time in school history, they will be moving on to the next round as the top-seed. The Junior Blazers remained red-hot at the end of the eliminations after burning down Colegio de San Juan de Letran, 65-62, on Tuesday at the Filoil Flying V Centre. Already assured of the top-seed, the defending champions elected to rest key cogs Joel Cagulangan, Joshua David, and Inand Fornilos. In Cagulangan’s stead, it was Jacob Cortez who brought the heroics as his late triple proved to be the difference. With that, CSB-LSGH put the finishing touches on a dominant 16-2 elims campaign – bar none, the most elims wins it has had in school history. Only one team has defeated the Junior Blazers thus far in the tournament, that being second-seed Mapua High School. The next possible matchup between the two teams would be in the Finals. Meanwhile, upstart University of Perpetual Help completed a season sweep of traditional powerhouse San Beda High School, 71-67. Super scorer Emman Galman did his thing with 26 points to shoot the Junior Altas to a 9-9 standing. Shawn Orgo also added 10 markers and eight rebounds to help his team go 2-0 on the traditional powerhouse The Red Cubs, already locked into the third-seed, were paced by Penny Estacio with 14 points. They end the elims at 12-6 and now turn their attention to their modern-day rival Red Robins. In the day’s other game, Arellano High School rallied by San Sebastian College-Recoletos, 75-73. Graduating big man Aaron Fermin remained a force with a 15-point, 21-rebound double-double while fellow seniors Lars Sunga and Rom Junsay contributed 12 and 11 markers, respectively. Coming from as much as 13 points behind, they wrap up what was a disappointing season at 7-11. Their losses dropped the Staglets to 5-13 and the Squires to 4-14.

Rockies top Cubs 2-1 in 13 innings in epic wild-card game

By Jay Cohen, Associated Press CHICAGO (AP) — Tony Wolters hit a tie-breaking single with two outs in the 13th inning and the Colorado Rockies beat the Chicago Cubs 2-1 on Tuesday night in an epic NL wild-card game. In the longest win-or-go-home postseason game in major league history, Wolters entered as part of a double switch in the bottom of the 12th. The reserve catcher came up with runners at the corners and drove in Trevor Story with a liner back up the middle off losing pitcher Kyle Hendricks, quieting the crowd of 40,151 on a crisp fall night. After playing its third big game over three days in three different cities, Colorado now heads to Milwaukee to open a best-of-five Division Series against the NL Central champion Brewers on Thursday at Miller Park. Scott Oberg, the sixth Colorado pitcher, fanned Kris Bryant for the final out of the 12th and then struck out the side in the 13th to end the longest postseason game in Wrigley Field history. Terrance Gore tried to sell that he was hit by a pitch, but was sent back to the plate after a replay review confirmed the initial call. After Albert Almora Jr. struck out swinging for the final out, Wolters ran out and grabbed Oberg. They were soon joined by the rest of the excited Rockies in a rollicking purple mob near the mound. Wolters' clutch swing in his playoff debut and Oberg's relief effort won it for the Rockies. Previously, the longest win-or-go-home games in the postseason were 12-inning affairs in the 2014 AL wild-card round and Game 7 of the 1924 World Series. It had pretty much everything, too. Hendricks was the third starting pitcher used by the Cubs, after Jon Lester worked six solid innings and Cole Hamels was pressed into action after the teams were tied at 1 after nine. Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado exchanged a memorable hug with Javier Baez after he tagged the excitable Cubs star in the 11th. Colorado moved on to the Division Series for the first time since 2009. The Rockies, who lost to Arizona in the wild-card game a year ago, will face NL Central champion Milwaukee in Game 1 on Thursday at Miller Park......»»

Players union reiterates disapproval of league match in US

By TALES AZZONI,  AP Sports Writer MADRID (AP) — The Spanish players' association remains against the league's plan to play a regular-season match in the United States despite receiving more detailed information. The association was not convinced by the league's update and said on Monday it still disapproved of the Girona-Barcelona game planned for suburban Miami in January. It said the league still lacks the necessary approvals from other stakeholders, and it can't guarantee the union contract won't be breached. The association doesn't have a final say on whether the game actually happens, although players recently did not rule out a strike if their demands are not considered. They complained about not being consulted by the league before the idea was presented. The association's latest announcement came three days after the Spanish soccer federation refused to approve the match, putting the plan in serious doubt. The federation requested more documentation from the league after saying it failed to show the overseas match would comply with Spanish and international regulations and TV broadcast contracts, and that it would not harm the other 18 league clubs and the fans of Girona and Barcelona. The match would also need to be approved by the U.S. soccer federation, plus continental bodies UEFA and CONCACAF. FIFA's permission is not mandatory but president Gianni Infantino recently expressed his concerns about the game. Spanish league president Javier Tebas again defended the match, saying football needs to catch up to what other sports have been doing to try to keep growing internationally. "If we don't keep working to try to grow, other competitions and other sports will leave us behind. We have to be different," Tebas said on Monday at a soccer conference in Madrid. "In the sports industry we have to try to copy what others are doing well. Why does the NBA and the NFL take a match abroad and we can't? Why can't we keep growing? This is our greatest responsibility, to grow, because this is an industry." Tebas said he was surprised by the amount of negative reaction to the proposal. "It looks like we want to play the entire league in Miami. It's just one match," he said. "We want to play one match, for strategic reasons, to try to grow the league." Earlier Monday, European Club Association chairman Andrea Agnelli, Juventus' president, said he "take(s) his hat off" to Tebas for taking the initiative and working to expand the Spanish league globally. "That's something that should be looked at," Agnelli said. "If you want to have a global audience, you need to be closer to (that audience)." The league plan to play games in the U.S. is part of a new 15-year partnership with sports and entertainment group Relevent, which operates the International Champions Cup, a tournament of club friendlies during the European offseason in July and August around the world. The Spanish federation held its season-opening Super Cup abroad for the first time in August, with Barcelona beating Sevilla in Tangier, Morocco. Real Madrid president Florentino Perez said on Sunday his team would not play the game abroad in the future, saying he was "vehemently against it." Tebas said: "The vast majority of the clubs, including Barcelona, are interested in playing this game. If Real Madrid doesn't want to go, then don't go. It's voluntary, no problem. Many clubs want to go.".....»»

NCAA: Red Cubs move up to solo third in narrow escape

San Beda University moved up to solo third spot after a narrow escape over Jose Rizal University, 65-63, Tuesday in the NCAA Season 94 juniors basketball at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan.
