Sick best friend’s wife has banned her from seeing him

Dear Emily,   My male friend and I grew up very close, as did our fathers. We attended the same high school and spent summer vacations together.   Our closeness continued until college. He introduced the girls he liked to me and I told him who I thought was good for him or not.   I went abroad to study, and when I came back, he was already engaged to a girl who I thought was wrong for him. I was away again when I heard that he had a grand wedding, as the parents of the bride had many grand friends. I knew he hated that stuff.   When we saw each other again, he already had two children and was in a very wobbly marriage. He was caught fooling aro...Keep on reading: Sick best friend’s wife has banned her from seeing him.....»»

Eye operation as rock opera: Led Zep plays as Pepe Smith goes under the knife

Optometrist Nella Sarabia sent me a frantic text message early in December: "Pepe is losing his sight." Pepe is Joey "Pepe" Smith, one of Pinoy Rock's founding fathers in the early '70s. Sarabia contacted me because it was I who brought Pepe to her clinic at UP Shopping Center in Diliman in 1993. Pepe had just been acquitted of drug charges after spending over a year in jail. I was comanaging his comeback in the music scene and one of the things he immediately needed was new prescription glasses, which Sarabia provided. She said Pepe went to her clinic on Dec. 4 complaining of blurred vision, and she was concerned.

Serena welcomes rule change on players back from pregnancy

ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Serena Williams has welcomed the extra protection given to new mothers when they return to the women's tennis tour. "It's great," the 23-time Grand Slam champion said on Thursday in quotes published by BBC Sport. "Women that are younger can go out there and have kids and not have to worry about it, and not have to wait until the twilight of their years to have children." The WTA rule changes were agreed on this month and are meant to ensure players are not penalized after they return from pregnancy or an injury that causes a long absence. The changes were prompted in part by the experiences of former No. 1 players Williams and Victoria Azarenka, both of whom returned to competition after giving birth. The WTA announced that players returning to the tour may use a special ranking for up to three years after the birth of a child, and the exemption can be used for seedings at big events. "Having gone through the experience myself really opened my eyes. Would I have done it sooner had there been different rule changes? I don't know," Williams said in Abu Dhabi ahead of an exhibition tournament where she played her sister Venus in a one-off match. "But now there is an opportunity, people don't have to ask that question." Williams was unseeded at the French Open in her first major since the birth of her daughter — despite having won the previous major she played, the 2017 Australian Open. Williams was seeded 25th at Wimbledon and 17th at the U.S. Open, and she reached the finals and lost at both of those majors......»»

Kobe Paras: It ll be fun to face Ateneo in the Finals

Incoming Fighting Maroon Kobe Paras said that it would be fun to see the University of the Philippines and Ateneo de Manila University clash once again in the championship series of the UAAP. However, Paras then added that the Blue Eagles should open their doors, close the main thoroughfare and declare the bonfire on Saturday as a bond between the adjacent higher institutions of learning.  "Ateneo, sama mo naman kaming mga Iskolar ng Bayan. Because basketball brings us together. So why don't just have a bonfire of UP and Ateneo together? Sa lahat ng Fathers ng Ateneo, mahal ko kayo. #OneBigFight #UPFight. Sarado natin yung buong Katipunan. Throw a big party," the 21-year old said in an interview with Mico Halili on 'The Score'. Kidding aside, Paras admitted that it 'pissed him off' that he was not able to play for the Maroons this year, who made a surprise run to the UAAP Season 81 Finals. However, he says he looks forward to playing with UAAP Season 80 Mythical Five member Ricci Rivero in leading the squad perhaps back to the Finals once again, and make sure to make the Iskolar ng Bayan proud of their exploits. "I didn't really have to be a part of [the magical season]. But something inside me that people were talking about is why UP was going to the Final Four is because of me and Ricci," he shared. "Everytime people say that to me, I tell them, don't focus on me, focus on the present. Focus on Season 81. My guys really did some big things and I'm proud of them. Not have one, but Ateneo deserved the championship this year." Paras also talked about his haters and how he deals with them everyday. "You just got to live your life. Whatever you do, people are going to respond in a negative or positive way. Do something that makes you happy." See the rest of the interview below:.....»»

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.....»»

From the Bay to the PH: Stephen Curry s Manila Tour

Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry made good on a promise he made to Filipinos three years ago -- to return to Manila.  Stephen’s game-breaking approach to basketball has scored him legions of adoring Filipino fans and followers from all around the globe who revel in every deep 3, every slippery drive to the rim, every sneaky steal.  His popularity has transcended borders, languages and cultures, and nowhere was that more evident than in Manila. Stephen’s first day began with a more than two hour on court workout with his trainer Brandon Payne. From shooting to speed and agility drills, Curry put in off season work as he continues to prepare for the upcoming NBA season. Steph Curry early practice in Manila ! — DYAN CASTILLEJO (@DYANCASTILLEJO) September 7, 2018 Curry wasted no time in tasting the local cuisine, and he couldn't have started with anything better, as he tried out some halo-halo.  Curry tries halo halo — DYAN CASTILLEJO (@DYANCASTILLEJO) September 7, 2018   A cold dessert that includes shaved ice, and various fruits such as shredded coconut, mangoes, jackfruit mixed with gelatin and milk. After touring a Jeepney, he traveled to Mall of Asia for the Under Armour Southeast Asia 3x3 Finals which saw he and his father, Dell Curry, on court for a shooting contest with other local fathers, sons and daughters. The competition was fierce but Dell and Stephen secured the win. From a press conference with journalists who came from all around Southeast Asia to cover the UA Brand House ribbon cutting to a skills competition shootout with his dad Dell, everywhere Stephen went in public, his Filipino fans followed in lockstep, fascinated by the presence of the two-time MVP and three-time World Champion. The fans weren’t the only ones awestruck - Stephen himself was blown away by the incredible landscape and cultural significance of the dense and bustling Manila.  Taking a quick tour of some city sights, Stephen then toured a Jeepney, the flamboyant WWII era truck that still can be found transporting residents throughout Manila. Curry capped off the day with a relaxing Filipino scalp massage at Titan and a visit to his shoe brand's main store. Before leaving the country, Curry dropped by the opening ceremony of UAAP season 81, where he led the legions of student-athletes in reciting the oath of sportsmanship. .@StephenCurry30 officially opens #UAAPSeason81! 🔥 — ABS-CBN Sports (@abscbnsports) September 8, 2018 After a busy three-day visit to Manila, much is left for the MVP's Asian Tour.
