High inflation, investment slowdown to drag growth

The Philippines is facing a perfect storm of economic woes, both from overseas and within, that will cap growth next year, a foreign think tank said on Wednesday.   In a research note to its clients, Capital Economics said high inflation and a slowdown in private investment would weigh down the local economy over the coming quarters.   "In contrast to the consensus, which is expecting growth to rebound next year, we think [gross domestic product (GDP) growth] will slow to just 6 percent in 2019," the think tank said, citing the stubbornly high inflation as the country's main economic challenge at present.   "The main concern for policymakers is the recent...Keep on reading: High inflation, investment slowdown to drag growth.....»»

NCAA: Red-hot Levi Dela Cruz, Arellano burn down JRU

Arellano University no longer has anything to play for in the NCAA 94 Men’s Basketball Tournament. That doesn’t mean, however, that they will no longer step down on the gas pedal. The Chiefs proved just that and more on Friday at the Filoil Flying V Centre as they ran over hapless Jose Rizal University, 86-70. Levi Dela Cruz waxed hot right from tip-off and spearheaded Arellano’s 23-3 surge to start the game. He would only keep going from there just as his teammates joined in on the fun. In the end, the Chiefs never trailed and were never threatened en route to hiking their record to 5-10. Dela Cruz wound up with 19 points built on five triples to lead four other teammates in double-digits. On a more personal note, Arellano has gifted new head coach Junjie Ablan his first win. Mark Mallari and Leo Esguerra topped the scoring column for the Heavy Bombers with 17 points apiece. They dropped to 2-14 with the loss. BOX SCORES ARELLANO 86 – Dela Cruz 19, Alcoriza 11, Canete 10, Dela Torre 10, Bayla 10, Segura 9, Alban 8, Concepcion 4, Sera Josef 3, Ongolo Ongolo 2, Sacramento 0, Codinero 0, Santos 0 JRU 70 – Mallari 17, Esguerra 17, Aguilar 12, Doromal 9, Estrella 4, Santos 4, Miranda 3, Padua 2, Mendoza 2, Bordon 0, Ramos 0, Silvarez 0, David 0, Dela Virgen 0 QUARTER SCORES: 25-7, 48-32, 75-50, 86-70 --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

Why David Byrne started covering a Janelle Monae song

NEW YORK (AP) --- After he burns down the house during his current concert tour, singer David Byrne ends each show on a serious note with a song that calls attention to minority victims of violence. The Janelle Monae cover, "Hell You Talmbout", is a rhythmic chant that recalls people like Freddie Gray, Trayvon Martin, Eric Garner and Sharonda Singleton. Gray died after a rough ride in a Baltimore police van, Martin was the Florida teen shot by someone who thought he looked suspicious, Garner died after being put in a chokehold by New York police and Singleton was killed in the Charleston, South Carolina, church shooting. The band's command: "Say his (or her) name." It's a bo...Keep on reading: Why David Byrne started covering a Janelle Monae song.....»»

CHAMPIONS CUP: Bolts settle for fourth place after losing to SK Knights

Meralco's rather disappointing stint in the 2018 FIBA-Asia Champions Cup ends on a sour note. The Bolts took another loss in Nonthaburi, this time an 87-91 decision at the hands of the Seoul SK Knights at Stadium 29. Still, Meralco will finish the tournament in fourth place despite a 1-4 record. The Bolts' only win was a dominant victory over Al Riyadi which ended up putting the team in the semifinals. Against South Korea's reigning league champions, Meralco used a furious third-quarter flurry to take the lead. However, as with their other losses in this tournament, the Bolts just failed to sustain the effort in the fourth period. Diamond Stone led Meralco with 32 points and 13 rebounds whil Allen Durham added 21 points. KG Canaleta fired five triples for 15 points. Dajuan Summers topscored the Knights with 26 points while four locals finished in double figures with Youngjun An dropping 17 markers.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»
