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.

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! 🔥 pic.twitter.com/GhSKYky44j — ABS-CBN Sports (@abscbnsports) September 8, 2018 After a busy three-day visit to Manila, much is left for the MVP's Asian Tour.

Migrant parents coerced by U.S. immigration officials

PHOENIX --- U.S. immigration authorities coerced dozens of parents separated from their children at the border to sign documents they did not understand, according to a complaint expected to be filed Thursday. In some of the cases, parents gave away rights to be reunited with their children when the non-English speaking mothers and fathers signed documents in English they could not read, according to the complaint provided to The Associated Press. In other cases, parents who had been reunited were threatened with another separation if they didn't agree to be deported with their children, the complaint said.

Madonna at 60: A controversial female icon

Not everyone might feel comfortable with Madonna being regarded as a feminist icon. She's an icon for sure, albeit a controversial one. And really, you could argue therein lies the charisma of Madonna-- she doesn't shy away from controversy. In fact, tracing her career, you could say she enjoys facing them head on. But whether you think she's a feminist or not, it's safe to say she won't really care what you think. She knows what she believes in, and she stands by her truth."I'm tough, I'm ambitious, and I know exactly what I want. If that makes me a b*tch, okay," goes one of her most famous quotes. Her impact goes beyond fingerless gloves, fishnet stockings, and oversized bangles. In...Keep on reading: Madonna at 60: A controversial female icon.....»»

Major grudge match for Garbrandt, Dillashaw tops fight card

By Greg Beacham, Associated Press LOS ANGELES (AP) — Cody Garbrandt and T.J. Dillashaw have one of the UFC's most compelling feuds of recent years. This beef is rooted in betrayal and tribalism, and it led to the demolition of a once-cordial relationship between training partners. The feud persisted even after Dillashaw knocked out Garbrandt and took his bantamweight title belt last year, following months of verbal sparring and pre-fight scuffling. Their rematch at Staples Center on Saturday night is the main event of UFC 227. It's also the chance for a particularly personal victory for both men, who declined to shake hands at their ceremonial faceoff Thursday in downtown Los Angeles. "I prefer to be respectful," Dillashaw said Thursday. "I prefer to be a martial artist, so I like a respect level, but I don't mind the drama, either. I'm going to use it to my advantage." Garbrandt (11-1) and Dillashaw (15-3) actually have plenty in common. They're both well-conditioned, gifted strikers who became elite competitors at Team Alpha Male, Urijah Faber's famed gym in Sacramento. They've also both become first-time fathers in the nine months since their last bout. But they simply haven't gotten along ever since Dillashaw won the bantamweight title and also left Alpha Male in 2014. To make an epic story short, Dillashaw says he was thrown out because he wouldn't break ties with coach Duane Ludwig, who had just split acrimoniously from Faber. Several Alpha Male fighters, including Garbrandt, say Dillashaw turned his back on them. "Let him say what he wants, but that motivates me," Garbrandt said. "If you say you're going to ruin my career and basically take food out of my child's mouth, that's fine. I didn't need any more motivation with my new son, and while I'm coming off my first loss, I've been more motivated than I ever have out of any win." Any viewer of the pay-per-view show can't miss the clear contrast between Garbrandt, the rural Ohio product with prominent neck tattoos, and Dillashaw, the clean-cut college graduate with a California surfer look. But the rematch primarily is a collision of two fighters with legitimate reason to think they're the best in the 135-pound division. Garbrandt rocketed to the top of the class, winning the belt less than two years after entering the UFC. He lost his title in equally stunning fashion last November to Dillashaw, who reclaimed the strap he had lost to Dominick Cruz nearly two years earlier. During his ascent, Garbrandt appeared to be the archetype of the most compelling lighter-weight fighters. He was slick, athletic, stylistically well-rounded and powerful enough to generate knockouts — and he looked the part of a mixed martial arts star, right down to those tattoos that spread down his resplendently multicolored arms. Garbrandt's neck is covered by large wings flanking a diamond, with the words "SELF MADE" atop his sternum. He seemed ticketed for superstardom — until Dillashaw, the former Cal State Fullerton wrestler whose only losses in the last six years were on debatable split decisions, wrecked the narrative with his fists. Immediately after their bout at Madison Square Garden, Garbrandt claims he tried to quash their grudge, but Dillashaw rejected him. Dillashaw says he isn't to blame for not wanting Garbrandt around him. "You've got me by the throat before, and that pushed me overboard," Dillashaw said, recalling a past scuffle between the two. "What's changed now? Just because I slapped you upside your face, what's different? Why have you got to be fake?" While Garbrandt doesn't accept the blame for this state of affairs, he insists he has grown and changed since his wife, Danny, gave birth in March to their first child, a son named Kai. But Garbrandt also angrily declined to apologize this week for a series of racially insensitive tweets from his early 20s. "I've never felt entitled to anything in my life," Garbrandt said. "I feel like everything happens for a reason. I've been given second chances my whole entire life. ... T.J. is a tough adversary. He's skilled. He's a good competitor. He doesn't like to lose either. That's what's great about this rivalry.".....»»

PBA: It’s gonna be a show – Brownlee on matchup with Balkman

From being Alab-Pilipinas’ dynamic duo, Justin Brownlee and Renaldo Balkman will be going at each other’s throats when Barangay Ginebra challenges defending champion San Miguel Beer for the 2018 PBA Commissioner’s Cup title.     Brownlee braces for a tough grind when he and the Gin Kings battle the star-studded Beermen led by Balkman in the best-of-seven title series starting Friday. “Balkman, seeing his talent and his skillset, what he can do for them, he's probably one of the best imports to play in this league as well,” said Brownlee, who had 12 points and 17 rebounds in Ginebra’s Finals seat-clinching 96-94 Game 4 win over Rain or Shine in the best-of-five semifinals on Monday. “I know its gonna be tough, it’s gonna be exciting especially for the fans, just gotta be ready for Friday,” added Brownlee. Brownlee and Balkman played together during the 2018 ASEAN Basketball League. The duo helped Alab-Pilipinas capture the crown at the expense of Mono Vampire-Thailand in a thrilling five-game series.   “Man, just a couple of months ago, me and him, was like Batman and Robin,” Brownlee said. “But... Like I said, its gonna be exciting for the fans, it's gonna be a treat for them, and hopefully, like one of his favorite quotes, it's gonna be a show. I hope it will be just that.” Gin Kings head coach Tim Cone expects fireworks when these two imports collide. “Well, I'm sure in the beginning, there's gonna be a little giggles and laughs between the two of them, maybe a few high fives, privately,” said Cone. “But once the series gets going, I tell you, those guys, they're so competitive, the two of them.” “They're gonna be mortal enemies out there by the time it's done and good,” he added. “They're former teammates, but I think they're really gonna go at each other.” One could just imagine what would be the first conversation between these friends who will try to carry their respective teams in the Finals. “I don't know how the first few minutes is gonna be. I'll probably text him later, I don't know how will I text him but I'll just congratulate him and tell him give it his all and I will do the same,” said Brownlee.     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

Fake news: algorithms in the dock

PARIS--At the heart of the spread of fake news are the algorithms used by search engines, websites and social media which are often accused of pushing false or manipulated information regardless of the consequences. - What are algorithms? - They are the invisible but essential computer programmes and formulas that increasingly run modern life, designed to repeatedly solve recurrent problems or to make decisions on their own. Their ability to filter and seek out links in gigantic databases means it would be impossible to run global markets without them, but they can also be refined down to produce personalised quotes on everything from mortgages to plane tickets.

Malaysia’s Najib Razak: From powerful Prime Minister to graft suspect

From prime minister of Malaysia two months ago to key suspect in a massive corruption scandal, Najib Razak's stunning fall from grace has been swift and hard. Since his shock election defeat in May, Najib has faced a tightening noose as the new government headed by his former mentor Mahathir Mohamad ramped up investigations into allegations of graft and excess that have hung over him and his wife Rosmah Mansor for years. The bland patrician son of one of Malaysia's founding fathers, Najib, 64, had been groomed for the prime minister's post from young. When he took over in 2009, Najib initially presented himself as a reformer. He made limited changes such as replacing security...Keep on reading: Malaysia’s Najib Razak: From powerful Prime Minister to graft suspect.....»»
