ONE Championship: Four World Titles make Team Lakay’s Christmas special this 2018

Christmas is one the biggest holidays in the Philippines. Incomparable to other countries, Christmas lights and holiday jingles start to play as early as September.   People from all walks of life gather on this special occasion and celebrate the holiday with food, drinks, and by spending time with friends and family.   Members of Team Lakay, the country's most renowned mixed martial arts group, have its own way of holding an annual celebration for the Yuletide season.   Housing four ONE World Champions such as Eduard Folayang, Kevin Belingon, Geje Eustaquio and Joshua Pacio, the Baguio City-headquartered camp holds a yearly Christmas party in mid-December to cap off the year.   "We have an early celebration coming up this Saturday, 15 December. We are going to have a beach house party in San Juan, La Union," Eustaquio shared.   "The gathering will celebrate our accomplishments this 2018, and also prepare for 2019. Everybody will come that day, most notably our professional athletes.”   Their way of celebration is not like any other party as it involves honoring their native tradition with a sumptuous feast and holding insightful talks for the advancement of their athletes’ career.   "We have a program, a feast, and an open mat for whoever wants to roll. Our world champions will share their experience and tell what they went through this year," Team Lakay head coach Mark Sangiao bared.   "This kind of gathering is our way to spend quality time with each other. This is our way to inspire other athletes, tighten our bond, and learn from each other.”   Finishing their campaign with four gold-plated belts under the ONE Championship banner, Sangiao believes that 2018 is Team Lakay’s most successful year since its inception in 2003   “It’s our biggest year. We won championship titles and received many awards this year. This is the result of our hard work, dedication, and sacrifice,” the Team Lakay headmaster said.   “Like we always say, this is our passion. We love what we do. These awards and titles are just the fruit of our hard labor.”   Although Team Lakay hauled all the titles, recognition and accolades that they could possibly get in 2018, all that matters to them is seeing each individual with gleeful smiles on their faces by the year's end.   "We are grateful for every year. We are always full of joy,” Eustaquio stated. “Seeing each other happy, seeing everyone living a peaceful life is more than enough.”.....»»

UK disarray: May to face no-confidence vote by lawmakers

LONDON --- British politics was thrown into chaos and Brexit into doubt Wednesday as Conservative lawmakers triggered a no-confidence vote in Prime Minister Theresa May that will see her removed as party and government leader if she loses. May vowed to fight the challenge "with everything I've got," after Graham Brady, who heads a committee overseeing Conservative leadership contests, said he had received letters from at least 48 lawmakers asking for a vote. As a result, he said, "the threshold of 15 percent of the parliamentary party seeking a vote of confidence in the leader of the Conservative Party has been exceeded." Brady said the vote would be held in Parliament betwe...Keep on reading: UK disarray: May to face no-confidence vote by lawmakers.....»»

Hello, martial law extension; goodbye, 2019 budget

Congress' joint session for martial law extension has added to the delay in passing next year's P3.757 trillion national budget which a Senate leader said could no longer be done this year.

Senators said it would be impossible for them to approve the 2019 budget on second and third reading by Thursday, Congress' last session day.

Higher ethanol blend can keep fuel prices low – Imee Marcos

        MANILA, Philippines --- Increasing the ethanol blend in gasoline products can keep fuel prices in the country low, Ilocos Norte Gov. Imee Marcos said on Tuesday.   She made this suggestion amid the impending implementation of the second round of fuel excise tax increase early next year. READ: Duterte approves 2nd round of fuel excise tax   "Given that ethanol is presently cheaper than gasoline, increasing the ethanol blend will result in cheaper ethanol-blended gasoline.

UAAP Finals: Thirdy makes another statement with newest haircut

Thirdy Ravena commemorated Ateneo's back-to-back UAAP men's basketball championships with his latest haircut.  The UAAP season 81 Finals MVP made another fashion statement to cap off his stellar season with the Blue Eagles by getting a sublime '2X' mark shave on his head. This, after dropping 38 points in Ateneo's championship-clinching Game 2 win over the UP Fighting Maroons last Wednesday. It wasn't the first time Thirdy tried a new hairstyle however.  Last September, the ultra-athletic swingman made waves with a polarizing haircut that had fans salute him for his uncompromising style, and had naysayers questioning the 'do. It all worked out in the end, though as the hate died down as days passed. Thirdy's newest haircut, however, is a both a fashion statement and a flex, reminding everyone that he is now a two-time UAAP men's basketball champion. Will we see a '3X' haircut from Thirdy next season? .....»»

Isco and Asensio lead Madrid into Copa del Rey s last 16

By Tales Azzoni, Associated Press MADRID (AP) — Marco Asensio and Francisco "Isco" Alarcon were the big winners in a match that had little at stake for Real Madrid. The pair made the most of their chances in a second-string Madrid team on Thursday, scoring two goals each in a 6-1 rout of third division Melilla in the Copa del Rey. Javi Sanchez and Vinicius Junior also netted as the European champion advanced to the last-16 stage 10-1 on aggregate after having won the first leg 4-0 in the small Spanish enclave in Africa. Asensio and Isco used to have bigger roles for Madrid but haven't been getting many first-team opportunities under new coach Santiago Solari. "I'm very happy for Isco and I'm also very happy for Asensio and Vinicius," Solari said. "They could all be starters for us, otherwise they wouldn't be here." Vinicius played well throughout and claimed his second goal for Madrid with a shot from inside the area in the 75th minute at Santiago Bernabeu Stadium. Isco was a starter for the first time under Solari and was named captain. He hadn't scored a goal since September but one of his strikes against Melilla came from a superb long-range shot into the top corner. Asensio, a second-half substitute in the league last weekend, hadn't scored since the first leg against Melilla in October. Mariano Diaz went off near the end because of an apparent muscle injury, while Madrid youth players Fran Garcia and Alvaro Fidalgo came on for their debuts as second-half substitutes. EIBAR FALLS Eibar was the first top-tier club to go out after drawing 2-2 at home to second division Sporting Gijon. Eibar rallied from 2-0 down on Thursday but was eliminated 4-2 on aggregate. OTHER RESULTS Levante defeated second division Lugo 2-0 to advance 3-1 on aggregate. Jorge "Coke" Andujar and Raphael Dwamena scored late goals for the hosts at Ciutat de Valencia Stadium. Athletic Bilbao repeated the 4-0 result from the first leg against Huesca to advance 8-0 overall. It was the third win for Athletic in 16 matches this season, and the team's first match since Argentine coach Eduardo Berizzo was fired. Real Betis defeated third division Racing Santander 4-0 to go through 5-0 on aggregate. Barcelona, Atletico Madrid and Sevilla went through on Wednesday. The draw for the last 16 will be on Dec. 13......»»

LTFRB urged to consult public, drivers on traffic policies

MANILA, Philippines --- Senator Grace Poe has criticized the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) for supposedly crafting policies without consulting public utility vehicle (PUV) drivers and operators, as well as passengers. Poe,chair of the Senate committee on public services, said this has led to "greater chaos of the already messy traffic situation being endured by the public every day." "The LTFRB seems to be crafting policies and issuances without hearing the side of the PUV operators, drivers, and passengers. It doesn't get the complete picture, the result is a mess," the lawmaker said in a statement.

Alfred Vargas to star in a film about desaparecidos

These days, the actor who shares the most personal stuff about himself is the one who gets the most followers," said Alfred Vargas, noting that a lot has changed since he took a break from show biz in 2009 to pursue a career in politics. "The industry is very different in the sense that it has now become very personal as a result of social media," he observed. "I noticed that people like it if you share stuff to them that makes you appear more human and less unreachable. It's so unlike in our time when our managers forbade us to be seen in public." Alfred is currently working on an advocacy film that he said he "fell in love with because it's so well-written."
