Under Aquino’s drug bailiwicks

It is what galvanized the electorate to grant Rodrigo Duterte his six million vote margin in 2016 and a continuing prayer to attain a drug-free society where the previous administration, through neglect, both deliberate and by “Noynoying,” escalated the drug menace to its most violent levels. Note the numbers. Duterte garnered nearly double the votes […].....»»

F2 Logistics, Generika-Ayala end first round on high note

Generika-Ayala closed the first round on a high note as it hammered a 26-24, 20-25, 25-17, 25-19 victory over Cocolife in the Philippine Superliga All-Filipino Conference Thursday at the Filoil Flying V Centre. Head coach Sherwin Meneses missed the action, but it didn’t matter as the Lifesavers unleashed their balance attack to cruise to their fourth straight win. Also marching into the second round with high morale is F2 Logistics, which dominated Smart, 25-11, 25-22, 25-17, in the second game. Majoy Baron fired 11 attacks, two blocks and two aces while Kim Fajardo chalked up 29 excellent sets laced with seven hits for the Cargo Movers, who improved to 5-2. With the victory, Generika-Ayala forged a tie with idle Cignal at the fourth spot with a 4-3 win-loss mark. Patty Orendain led the scoring parade with 22 points while Fiola Ceballos unleashed an all-around performance of 20 markers, 13 digs and 13 excellent receptions for the Lifesavers, who gained confidence after bringing down powerhouse F2 Logistics in four sets two weeks ago. Angeli Araneta and Ria Meneses were also impressive as they chipped in 18 and 10 markers, respectively while prized libero Kath Arado registered 31 digs and 21 excellent receptions in a match that took almost two hours to conclude. “We started the conference with three straight losses. That was tough. But when we won over F2 Logistics, that’s when things turned around for us,” said Generika-Ayala assistant coach Parley Tupaz. “After that win, we gained confidence, we were able to play at our best.” Tupaz, who called the shots in lieu of Meneses who was abroad to attend an FIVB coaching course seminar, added that although they remain a work in progress, they are glad that they are slowly developing their chemistry and cohesion needed for the tough grind ahead. “Although there’s still a lot to work on but we’re happy that we’ve managed to get to where we are right now while working hard for what we want more.” Filipino-American spiker Kalei Mau tallied a game-high 26 points, 12 digs and 16 excellent receptions for Cocolife, which slid to 1-6. Alex Tan and Arianna Angustia also contributed 10 markers apiece......»»

PVL: Lady Warriors seek to end campaign on winning note

Pocari Sweat-Air Force and Adamson-Akari clash in a battle of ousted teams Wednesday in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Open Conference at the Batangas City Coliseum. Already eliminated in the semifinals race, the two squads collide at 4:00 p.m. hoping to end their respective slumps. The match will air live on LIGA SkyCable Channel 86, LIGA HD SkyCable Channel 183 and via livestream. The Lady Warriors are looking to close their campaign in the season-ending conference on a winning note after missing the Final Four for the first time in franchise history. Pocari Sweat, which is coming of a straight sets win over Iriga-Navy, sports a 6-7 win-loss record and is tied with Tacloban. Plagued by stinging five-set losses, the Lady Warriors' hunt for the last best-of-three semifinals berth ended after PetroGazz clinched its eighth win. Meanwhile, the Lady Falcons march into their 13th outing still searching for the elusive win. Bitten by the injury bug throughout the conference, the Collegiate Conference bronze medal winner Adamson-Akari struggled. The Lady Falcons absorbed a straight-set drubbing at the hands of the Angels last Sunday but did found some bright spot in the match after top hitter Eli Soyud saw action for the first time.            Though playing only in the third set, Soyud’s five-point outing is good news for Adamson-Akari which is using the tournament as part of its preparation for the UAAP next year.             --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles  .....»»

Browns GM: Team hasn t discussed Condoleezza Rice as coach

By Tom Withers, Associated Press CLEVELAND (AP) — The Browns' coaching search isn't quite ready to cross gender or diplomatic lines. General manager John Dorsey, who opened the possibility of hiring a woman to be Cleveland's next coach, said Sunday that the team has not discussed former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice as a candidate to become the club's ninth coach since 1999. ESPN, citing an anonymous league source, reported that the team would like to interview Rice, an ardent Browns fan since childhood, for its coaching job. However, Dorsey said she is not on the team's current list of candidates. "Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice is a great leader, possesses the highest possible character and also happens to be a Browns fan," Dorsey said. "I have the utmost respect and admiration for all she's accomplished and was honored to meet her for the first time earlier this season. Our coaching search will be thorough and deliberate, but we are still in the process of composing the list of candidates and Secretary Rice has not been discussed." Earlier this week, Dorsey said he would consider a wide-range of candidates. "I just want the best possible head coach to move this thing forward regardless of age," he said. "It could be a woman, too. I am serious. Who knows?" The 64-year-old Rice would be an historic and outside-the-box candidate for the Browns, who fired Hue Jackson last month after he won just three games in two-plus seasons and went 0-16 in 2017. There has never been a woman interviewed for a head coaching job in the NFL. On her Facebook page, Rice professed her deep love for the Browns and said confidently, "I know they will hire an experienced coach to take us to the next level." "On a more serious note, I do hope that the NFL will start to bring women into the coaching profession as position coaches and eventually coordinators and head coaches," she wrote. "One doesn't have to play the game to understand it and motivate players. But experience counts — and it is time to develop a pool of experienced women coaches. "BTW — I'm not ready to coach but I would like to call a play or two next season if the Browns need ideas! And at no time will I call for a "prevent defense." Rice's last reference is common among die-hard Browns fans, who still bemoan then-coach Marty Schottenheimer's decision to play soft coverage in the 1986 AFC championship game when Denver quarterback John Elway drove the Broncos 98 yards to a game-tying touchdown in the final seconds. "The Drive" as it's known helped the Broncos beat the Browns 23-20 in overtime, denying Cleveland a trip to the Super Bowl. Rice discussed her love for the team during a visit to the Browns' headquarters in 2010. Her passion for the Browns dates to her early years in Alabama, where she and her father watched games together and cheered for Hall of Fame running back Jim Brown on teams coached by Paul Brown. Rice has become increasingly involved in sports, serving on the College Football Playoff selection committee and chairing a commission on college basketball. She served as secretary of state under President George W. Bush from 2005-09. Dorsey said interim coach Gregg Williams will be interviewed for the full-time position following the season. The Browns have a bye this week and will face Cincinnati next Sunday, when they'll have a reunion sorts with Jackson, who was hired by the Bengals as a special assistant to coach Marvin Lewis......»»

Batang Gilas duo shine for NU in UAAP 81 Juniors action

The Nazareth School of National University (NS-NU) Bullpups opened their UAAP Season 81 Juniors' Basketball tournament campaign on a high note after holding off the FEU-Diliman Baby Tamaraws, 78-70, at the Blue Eagle Gym Sunday morning. With the game tied at 57 following a JB Sajonia jumper from 15 feet, NS-NU held off a furious run by the Baby Tams, as Bullpup Terrence Fortea scored six straight points to keep their opponents at bay.  FEU-Diliman's RJ Abarrientos cut the lead to as close as four, 61-65, but NS-NU answered emphatically with the game-deciding 16-3 run, capped off by Harold Alarcon's fastbreak layup. "Medyo nag-start out ng maganda yung defense namin. Na-contain namin yung FEU noong first half. Noong bandang gitna ng third quarter, medyo bumaba na naman. Siguro we have to be more consistent," NS-NU Bullpups head coach Goldwin Monteverde told ABS-CBN Sports. NU tried to pull away initially in the first half, venturing on an 11-1 run bridging the first two quarters to lead 28-16, but the Baby Tamaraws found a way to slowly chip away the lead. Batang Gilas duo Carl Tamayo and Gerry Abadiano had a great debut for the Season 80 runners-up, combining for 28 points. The sharpshooter Fortea meanwhile added 11 markers of his own. Abarrientos top scored for the Baby Tamaraws with 15, while Ron Tolentino added 14. Meanwhile, in the first game, the De La Salle-Santiago Zobel Junior Archers drew their first win of the season in a comeback win against the UE Junior Red Warriors, 66-56. Game tied at 49 in the early goings of the fourth quarter, DLS-Zobel wrestled away the game from UE through a 15-4 run to lead 64-53. Henrie Subido, brother of UST Growling Tiger Renzo led the way with 19 points. Lance Jomalesa, a key cog in the game-sealing run added 17 markers of his own. For UE, Shane Dichoso paced their offese with 20 points and six rebounds, but coughed the ball nine times. Big man Jesse Sullano meanwhile had a double-double performance of 11 points and 10 rebounds. FIRST GAME DLSZ (66) -- Subido 19, Jomalesa 17, Sevilla 13, Macasaet 6, Pingol 4, Villarin 3, Buncayo 2, Milan 2, Cudiamat 0, Luna 0, Marana 0.
