‘French kiss’ on the line in debate over seduction, harassment — writer

PARIS, France --- The "French kiss" is being threatened by political correctness as France wrestles with itself over the line that separates seduction and sexual harassment, a French writer says. Since the allegations of rape and sexual harassment emerged against Hollywood film producer Harvey Weinstein, the country synonymous with love has been stumbling as it addresses the issue of sexual harassment and violence against women. Some have wondered if France can address men's behavior toward women without throwing out its Don Juan national identity. "France is a country of men who love women," Guillaume Bigot, who has written about the Weinstein fallout in France, told The As...Keep on reading: ‘French kiss’ on the line in debate over seduction, harassment — writer.....»»

Ex-Alaska import Chambers helps Pinoy educators in the US

Sean Chambers saw the bulk of his basketball career as an import for Alaska from 1989 to 2001, distinguishing himself as one of the most successful reinforcements in the PBA. Filipinos love him and he even called the Philippines his second home. Even with his jersey long been retired, Chambers is still giving something back to the Filipinos.   Now a middle school administrator back in the States in the Sacramento City Unified School District in California, the 52-year-old former cager is instrumental in helping Filipino educators land teaching jobs. “It’s pretty neat because right now within my district we have brought over 24 Filipino teachers to come work in our schools because we were short of teachers,” Chambers told ABS-CBN Sports on Sunday when he watched the 80th UAAP men’s basketball Final Four match between Far Eastern University and Ateneo de Manila University at the Big Dome. With 81 schools under SCUSD, Chambers said that Filipino teachers are very in demand and in his little way helped pave the way for Pinoys to land jobs as educators. “I was very instrumental to come out and recruit Filipino teachers to come over,” added Chambers, who works as dean of students in Fern Bacon Middle School. The six-time PBA champion, including four straight Governors’ Cup titles from 1994 to 1997, is on a 10-day trip in the country. He is currently working with the Aces as Alaska prepares for the 43rd PBA Philippine Cup on December 17. “I’m gonna be working with some of their bigs, some of the guards, some offensive schematics for a week and a half,” he said. Early Sunday, Chambers paid a surprise visit to the Gilas Pilipinas’ practice at the Meralco gym. “I was able, today, to go workout in the Gilas practice so that was an honor itself to be able to work out with the Gilas and an absolute honor to me,” said Chambers. “I believe the coaching staff led by coach Chot Reyes are doing an amazing thing,” he added. “They pay attention to the details, high level of concentration. The players are playing on a high level of expectations for playing for their country.” Chambers, obviously, rooted for FEU in the UAAP match and was even seated behind the Tamaraws’ bench where his former teammates Jojo Lastimosa and Johnny Abarrientos serve as assistant coaches. His visit was a good one as the Tams forced a do-or-die match in the semis with an 80-67 rout of the Blue Eagles.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

Green Day takes on the American dream in ‘Back in the USA’

Green Day has just released a greatest hits album that includes the brand-new track "Back in the USA", which has now been given the video treatment with a black-and-white satire of the American dream. The video opens on a 1950s-style scene of American life, complete with lawn-mowing, sweater vests and waving neighbors. Green Day lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong grabs a copy of the newspaper, headlined "Presidential Address Tomorrow," and heads inside before getting a visit from a traveling sunglasses saleswoman who changes his outlook on his seemingly idyllic lifestyle. He is soon joined by his fellow band members as they bring their new outlook to the stage. "Back in the US...Keep on reading: Green Day takes on the American dream in ‘Back in the USA’.....»»

Ohio candidate brags about sex with ’50 very attractive females’

CHICAGO -- An Ohio judge and gubernatorial candidate sparked a firestorm Friday when, seemingly fed up with the escalating national debate over sexual harassment and impropriety in the workplace, he bragged that he had slept with 50 women. Bill O'Neill said in a Facebook post that his admission was "on behalf of all heterosexual males" and an effort to move on from the "national feeding frenzy about sexual indiscretions decades ago." "In the last fifty years I was sexually intimate with approximately 50 very attractive females," the Democratic candidate and justice on the Midwestern state's highest court said. "It ranged from a gorgeous blonde who was my first true love and we m...Keep on reading: Ohio candidate brags about sex with ’50 very attractive females’.....»»

Turn up to one of the initial five courts across Manila and ballers can connect to Nike Hyper Court and gain free access to content, powered by Google technology, that includes training drills, elevated member activities and the best of Nike global basketball content. “The passion for basketball in Manila is unlike any other city in Asia. We want to inspire young ballers to realize their full potential through the physical and digital aspects of their sport. Nike Hyper Court enables these ballers to train anytime without worrying about access to training drills and data costs,” said Nike Southeast Asia & India Senior Marketing Director, Bulbul Khera. “Nike Hyper Court, powered by Google, presents a great example of how businesses can partner with the community to customize technology and provide an original, digital solution aimed at empowering Filipino basketball players and youth across the capital. We are excited to see Nike Hyper Court use Google’s technology to change the game.

Features include drills and skills training programs addressing power, quickness and versatility tailored for different types of players, all delivered through a program that learns and makes recommendations from continuous user interaction. Each of the Nike Hyper Courts in the five Barangays (districts) are visually stunning thanks to the design of Arturo Torres, internationally renowned artist known for his signature superhero themed illustrations of rappers, basketball stars and New York Times bestselling books. Arturo’s design for each court features an emblematic identity of five basketball superstars: LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook and Kyrie Irving. “I want the kids that play on these courts to know that they can be like the superstars I’ve drawn. Sure you have to put in the work, but no one can tell that you can't do something. With Nike Hyper Court you can go out there and prove them wrong – to anyone that's ever said no to you,” said Torres. The first five courts are launching this holiday season: 1. Titan Love Court, BGC – LeBron James Court 2. Ususan Court, Taguig – Kobe Bryant Court 3. Comembo Covered Court, Makati – Kevin Durant Court 4.
