Gov’t failed to pay DPWH contractors P100B–Andaya

The government failed to pay private companies more than P100 billion in 2018 due to a "corrupt system" that continued to control the payment scheme for public works contracts, according to House appropriations committee chair Rep. Rolando Andaya Jr.   In a statement on Friday, the Camarines Sur congressman said the government's failure to pay for completed projects might drive away contractors and derail the Duterte administration's "Build, Build, Build" infrastructure program.   "This gargantuan amount of payables has reincarnated an old system that forces (public works) contractors to cough up kickbacks just to be paid for completed infrastructure projects," ...Keep on reading: Gov’t failed to pay DPWH contractors P100B–Andaya.....»»

ABL: Ramos hulks up to a triple-double in Alab s rout of Warriors

Without a doubt, Alab Pilipinas started slow up against Zhuhai on Friday at the Doumen Gymnasium in China. Once they got going, however, there was no slowing them down as the Filipinos rolled over the home team Wolf Warriors, 105-79, all the way a bounce back win in the 2018-2019 Asean Basketball League. Coming off a loss that halted their seven-game win run two days ago, all of back-to-back Local MVP Ray Parks Jr. and Puerto Rican reinforcements PJ Ramos and Renaldo Balkman took time to find their range in this one. With Zhuhai enjoying a 26-19 lead at the 6:35 mark of the second, however, Parks Jr. caught fire in the telling run that swung both the lead and the momentum in favor of his team. It was his back-to-back triples that formed the backbone of the 30-8 tear that erased Alab’s seven-point deficit and erected a 49-34 advantage just right before halftime. Their lead would not go lower than 20 points the rest of the way as they breezed to their 14th win in 17 games. In the end, Parks Jr. had 15 points, three rebounds, two assists, and two steals, staying red-hot as he has been of late. He didn’t play much in the second half, however, and then, it was the Ramos show as he did it all to tally a triple-double of 15 points, 14 rebounds, and 11 assists. Balkman also added 19 points, seven rebounds, and five assists while Caelan Tiongson and Brandon Rosser each had 10 markers. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»
