Ushering in a new cinema experience for Filipinos

Many will agree that watching a movie in a cinema is an experience on its own—the waft of buttered popcorn all-around place, the anticipation for the film to begin as you watch trailers, and the collective reaction during a particular scene. But with most cinemas still off-limits to moviegoers, people have to find creative ways to recreate this experience in their own homes......»»

Big businesses sacrifice to prop up economy during pandemic

The country’s top corporations have shown that they have been walking the talk even before signing the Covenant for Shared Prosperity wherein they have sacrificed profitability in order to take care of their stakeholders and ensure sustainability.                 SM Prime Holdings Inc. Chairman Hans T. Sy said that, during this pandemic, “We were the first to announce to continue all the salaries even when we were all down. So these are all sacrificing profits. Why do we do that? …We are all looking into long term. Investment is not only just for the short term basis, it is really for the long term we’re in here.” SM Prime Holdings Inc. Chairman Hans T. Sy (left) and Ayala Corporation Chairman Jaime Augusto Zobel de Ayala.               Ayala Corporation Chairman Jaime Augusto Zobel de Ayala agreed with Sy, noting that most businesses, “in one way or another has suffered a great deal of pain and, in many ways, to preserve the ecosystem, to retain their employees, the people that support them.”              “I have 1001 examples that I’ve seen during this crisis of everybody sacrificing a great deal,” he noted.              Sy and Zobel were keynote speakers during the launching of the Philippine Business Community’s Covenant for Shared Prosperity organized by the Management Association of the Philippines.              “As we struggle with the COVID pandemic, we also need to address the critical longer-term global issue of inequality which has worsened because of the current health crisis. Many businesses have closed, millions have lost jobs and many are going hungry,” said MAP President Francis Lim.              He noted that, “When the crisis is over, we at MAP would like to see a new ‘normal’ in the way we deal with our stakeholders — our employees, customers, product/service/fund providers, the communities we serve (especially the bottom of the pyramid), the environment and our shareholders (both majority and non-controlling shareholders).”             Lim explained that, “The Covenant… is envisioned to be the private sector’s response to the stakeholder theory now enshrined under the Revised Corporation Code.”             Securities and Exchange Commission Chairman Emilio Aquino explained that the stakeholder theory is a major shift in focus of businesses which used to be focused only in the interests of its stockholders.             Aquino said that, now, publicly-listed companies “are mandated to report on their economic, environmental and social impacts which further strengthened the Stakeholder Theory. At this point, we have seen a drastic paradigm shift in the way corporations do business and create shareholder value. Profit, while essential in the survival of the corporation, is not anymore the sole focus of corporate ventures.”            “Maybe it had to take a beast like COVID-19 for all of us to understand that we all have to support each other as communities and institutions if we are to rebuild successfully,” said Zobel.            He added that, “Now, more than ever, we have to find ways to expand our traditional definition of who we are responsible for and accountable to – well beyond our shareholders and other providers of capital; well beyond the sole pursuit of profit.”.....»»

Coach Aldin fully cooperating in probe into alleged Bicol Bubble

Aldin Ayo has acknowledged that there is an internal investigation regarding recent issues involving the University of Sto. Tomas Men's Basketball Team. "Regarding the alleged ' bubble training' in Sorsogon, I will not comment for now as UST is already investigating the matter," he said in a statement released Sunday evening. "I am fully cooperating and praying that in due time, this will be properly addressed." UST head coach Aldin Ayo has broken his silence on @cjcansino and the alleged Bicol Bubble. — No Work Normie Riego (@riegogogo) August 23, 2020 Earlier, UST itself confirmed that it is, indeed, already looking into the so-called "Bicol Bubble" overseen by coach Aldin. This was in response to recent reports that the Growling Tigers have been in Sorsogon since June, or in the midst of the continuing COVID-19 crisis. According to ABS-CBN News' Camille Naredo, as of late, CJ Cansino, doing his duty as team captain, told coaches and management about "their desire to go home." The report went on to say that what he did "was not taken well by Ayo." Not long after, Cansino was kicked off the team and then found himself in the University of the Philippines. That sudden exit and the reasons surrounding it has apparently opened a can of worms that now involved government agencies. Along with vowing continued cooperation, coach Aldin also said he was hoping he and the rest of the basketball community could be back on the court sooner than later. As he put it, "We fervently hope that our government, with our cooperation and active participation, find ways to effectively address the debilitating pandemic so we may be able to resume a certain normalcy." He then continued, "And return to the game we passionately love, drawing the best out of each other in pursuit of total human development." --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

WHAT IF Marck Espejo played for DLSU?

We all know what Marck Espejo brought to Ateneo when he donned the Blue Eagles jersey in the UAAP. He led the blue and white to three straight titles in five consecutive Finals appearances in indoor volleyball and captured Ateneo’s first and so far lone championship in beach volleyball. As a player, Espejo achieved a feat difficult to surpass if not replicate. A Rookie of the Year award, five straight Most Valuable Player honors aside from other individual accolades. The Marikina pride even registered the league’s most points in a game with 55 during his last tour of duty with the Blue Eagles in Season 80. Espejo’s impact left a lasting imprint not only to the Blue Eagles but also to the entire league. Arguably, his persona could even also be attributed to the renewed popularity of men’s volleyball in the country which for years failed to bask in the same limelight enjoyed by women’s play. Indeed, Ateneo found a precious gem in Espejo. But what if Espejo decided to take his talents to a different school? Let’s say, De La Salle University. After all the green and white was actually one of Espejo’s options heading into college. [Related story: DID YOU KNOW? Marck Espejo almost played for DLSU] If Espejo played for the Green Spikers, he would definitely be a game changer. The Ateneo-National University championship rivalry wouldn’t have happened. Instead, it would’ve been the Bulldogs and Green Spikers duking it out for the crown during Espejo’s UAAP stint.      “Kung sa amin siya naglaro panigurado malaki ‘yung impact sa team namin kasi alam naman natin si Marck malakas talaga siya kahit buong team kaya niyang dalhin,” former DLSU setter and now assistant coach Geuel Asia told ABS-CBN Sports. Asia, who played for the Green Spikers from Season 75 to Season 79, added that he’s very familiar with Espejo's game as they were teammates when the National Capital Region ruled the 2012 Palarong Pambansa in Lingayen, Pangasinan.       “So malakas ang impact niya sa DLSU kung sakali. Power and mind maglaro si Marck so malaki ang matutulong niya sa DLSU,” said the former national team playmaker and Espejo's Cignal HD Spikers teammate. "Fit din siya sa system. Kahit na anong sistema aayon sa kanya, magiging comfortable siya."  In fact, with him on board DLSU in Season 76, the Green Spikers might have even gotten a trip to the Final Four. The Green Spikers, who finished third n Season 75, were eliminated by Adamson University in the playoff for no. 4 spot the following season.  Imagine Espejo adding more firepower to DLSU, which already had Season 75 MVP Red Christensen, Raymark Woo, Aaron Calderon, Ralph Calasin and Philip Cerveza. “Sobrang lakas talaga kung nangyari ‘yung ganun. Kasi yun din time na yun malakas si Woo eh,” said Asia. With Espejo, who was second in scoring in his rookie year and was in the top 10 in spiking, blocking, service and digs, DLSU might not even need to go to the playoff for a semis spot. Heck, the Green Spikers might even land at no. 2 - just like how Espejo led Ateneo into the Finals in Season 76 to face NU – considering that Christensen, Woo and Cerveza that year were consistently producing big numbers and contributing well on defense.      Of course, that team would still find it difficult to surpass the powerhouse Peter Torres-led Bulldogs in the championship. But at least that would’ve given DLSU the much-needed championship experience. Let’s say Woo didn’t suffer a knee injury during the pre-season while playing in a ligang labas that forced him to sit out  year, then DLSU would have remained a solid contender in Season 77. There might even have been the possibility that the Green Spikers ended a decade-long title-drought that year as they would have been parading an experienced and solid lineup composed of Espejo, Woo, setters Brendon Santos and Asia, libero Jopet Movido, Calderon, Christensen, Mike Frey, Arjay Onia, Cris Dumago and Calasin. The possibility of DLSU winning another title or two in the next three seasons with Espejo at the helm might not be far from reality.    But then of course Season 80 would be a different story. That year the Green Spikers would’ve parted ways with most of its veterans leaving Espejo, Onia, Dumago and Frey leading a young team piloted by third year setter Wayne Marco.    Even if DLSU did manage to crawl its way back into the Finals in Espejo’s last year, it would be extremely difficult to hurdle the Bulldogs parading a tall and very talented crew led by ace hitter Bryan Bagunas, Kim Malabunga, Madzlan Gampong, James Natividad, Francis Saura, setter Kim Dayandante and libero Ricky Marcos.    But then again, a DLSU squad bannered by Espejo in the UAAP would have definitely been a sight to behold. Too bad we could only imagine the what ifs.   ---    Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»
