A Fil-Am actor’s life: Cesar Cipriano

  (Conclusion) LOS ANGELES---"It has been a mixture of fulfillment, excitement and wonder, sprinkled with moments of frustration and thumb twiddling," Cesar Cipriano summed up his journey so far as a Fil-Am actor in Hollywood. Our first exposure---pun unintended---to Cesar was in the East West Players' production of "La Cage aux Folles" in 2016. He played several roles, but it was as a dancer that he almost stole the show, along with Reuben Uy. As go-go studs, Cesar and Reuben wore the briefest shorts, trunks or underwear throughout the musical. And even when playgoers were just arriving at David Henry Hwang Theater in Los Angeles' Little Tokyo, the two dudes greeted...Keep on reading: A Fil-Am actor’s life: Cesar Cipriano.....»»

Japan’s Abe avoids controversial shrine on war anniversary

Tokyo, Japan --- Japan's Prime Minister offered a ritual cash donation to a controversial Tokyo war shrine on Wednesday but did not visit in person, as the country marks the 73rd anniversary of the end of World War II. Shinzo Abe sent an aide to Yasukuni Shrine, once again staying away from a site that honors Japan's war dead, including convicted war criminals. Visits by Abe and other senior Japanese politicians have angered China and other Asian neighbors, and the Prime Minister's decision to stay away comes as he works to improve ties with Beijing. Yasukuni honors some 2.5 million people, mostly Japanese, who perished in the country's wars since the late 19th century.

National 3x3 team will not be at the mercy of ball clubs says chief backer

The team Chooks-to-Go is trying to build will be on-call pretty much anytime as long as it's about representing the Philippines in international competitions. The chief Gilas backer announced Tuesday that it's working on creating a full-time national 3x3 team with the goal of qualifying for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. [Related: Plan to form dedicated 3x3 national team already in motion] And when Chooks says full-time national team, it means full-time national team. In light with the persisting issue of Gilas having trouble securing players to play in international tournaments, this dedicated 3x3 team will have no such problems as assured by Chooks' big boss himself. "The whole point of our investment sa sports, hindi lang dahil mahal namin ang basketball. Our primary agenda is to restore our spirit of nationalism na nawala na. If you talk to the UAAP, to the pro leagues, parang hindi na nahihiya yung mga tao ngayon to refuse to represent the country," Bounty Agro Ventures Inc. President Ronald Mascarinas said. "Yung bang local tournament ng collegiate o sa pro is more important than to serve the country? We keep on compromising. Yung compromise natin is hindi na nahihiya yung mga leaders natin to refuse to serve the country. We will be a nation of pasaway if magtuloy pa ito," he added. In a strong message, Mascarinas says he wants to change that culture. In essense he doesn't want the national team to be at the mercy of ball clubs which is why PBA players might not see action in the 3x3 national team, which has Kobe Paras for the time being. "I really take personal offense na ang lalakas ng loob nila na magpaalam ka. Narinig lang nila that we need to send representatives, sana mag-offer sila ng available na player. Pero hindi nangyayari yun. We want to change that culture," Mascarinas said. "We want to full-time engagement. Sa tingin ko if they are full-time PBA players, we will be at the mercy of the clubs again," he added. The national 3x3 team backed by Chooks-to-Go is set to embark on a grand plan of qualifying to the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. To complete the pool of players, there will be a series of tournaments and tryouts all across the country. "This is a good opportunity for everybody. Yung tryouts na ito, even yung out-of-school youth in the barangay-level, puwede sila mag-try out. Itong programa na ito will bring out the best among our dreamers," Mascarinas said.     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»
