President Benigno S. Aquino III congratulates boxing icon Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao, who once again won the admiration of his countrymen in pulling off another convincing win over Mexican boxer Antonio Margarito.

After meeting with some 1,000 members of the Filipino community at the Yokohama Futaba High School on Sunday afternoon here, the President said he was able to talk and congratulate Pacquiao shortly after the fight at the Dallas Cowboys Stadium in Dallas, Texas.

“Pinuri natin sa ipinamalas niya kanina dahil pinahanga na naman niya ang mga Pilipino,” the President said.

The President said he would meet with Pacquiao once the boxing hero returns to the country. (PNA)

Talk of the Town / Philippine Lotto Prize Scam Syndicate
« on: November 14, 2010, 03:10:34 AM »
A woman claiming to have won a P14-million lotto jackpot said she was duped by a syndicate at the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO).

The woman from Tarlac province, who requested anonymity, said she immediately went to the PCSO's national office in Quezon City after winning a P14-million 6/45 lotto jackpot last February.

She said a female PCSO employee named Loida Guevarra asked her to sign a special power of attorney and told her to open a bank account, where the lotto prize would be deposited.

The woman said the P14 million did not reach her bank account. She also said that she has confirmed with PCSO that the lotto prize has already been claimed.

Atty. Lauro Patiag, manager of the PCSO's legal department, denied the woman's claim. He said that the real winner of the 6/45 lotto prize was a resident of Metro Manila and not from Tarlac.

"Hindi totoo iyan... May ibang nanalo na taga-Metro Manila," Patiag said.

He, however, said that they will still look into the allegation of the woman. -- Report from Kori Quintos, ABS-CBN Central Luzon

No one from Asia was included in ESPN's 50 Greatest Boxers of All Time. Although Manny Pacquiao is the only boxer in history to hold 7 championship belts in as many divisions, he was not included by ESPN. Some American sports writers are plain stupid. Here's the list:

Philippine Entertainment / Pres. Noynoy Aquino Confirms Dating with Liz Uy
« on: November 13, 2010, 09:55:44 PM »
For the first time since news swirled around of a new romance in his life about two months ago, President Aquino confirmed reports he and his personal stylist Liz Uy are dating.

Interviewed here on the eve of the 18th APEC Leaders' Meeting, the 50-year-old bachelor said he saw nothing wrong if he and the 28-year-old stylist spent time together every now and then.

"We have been spending time together as our schedules would permit, but I guess, at this point in time, that is the extent of it," said the president, in response to queries from reporters.

Asked if this could be considered "panliligaw" (courting), the president replied: "At the present time, I'm just recovering also from a recent engagement, and there's just too many things. And the schedules on both sides are such that it's difficult to find common time, and especially when you are not given private time." - Lynda Jumilla, ABS-CBN

Philippine Provinces / Labor Crisis at Cebu's VECO Company
« on: November 13, 2010, 08:53:49 PM »
The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) has assumed jurisdiction over the labor dispute at the Visayan Electric Company (Veco), averting a labor strike in Metro Cebu’s lone power distribution company.

The labor department has ordered the Veco management to reinstate the union president in its payroll and the union to refrain from carrying out a strike because of its impact on consumers.

Labor Secretary Rosalinda Baldoz issued the order last Nov. 10 while the labor dispute between the management and union of Visayan electric company (Veco) is being resolved.

She placed the management and the Veco Employees Union under the compulsory arbitration of the National Labor Relations Commission (NLRC).

Baldoz ordered Veco to reinstate union president Casmero Mahilum in its payroll.

This means that Veco continues to pay Mahilum his wages and benefits but does not actually allow him to work.

The labor secretary ordered the union not to carry out its plan to strike until the labor case has been resolved.

The union filed a notice of strike last Oct. 28 after talks over their collective bargaining agreement (CBA) bogged down.

Veco management has been assuring that power connection and other operations would remain unhampered because systems have been put in place.

Both the management and the union said they will respect the Dole order which “refrains them from committing any act that will worsen the situation."

Baldoz noted Veco’s being the second largest electric utility in the country with a franchise coverage of 672 square kilometers with a population of about 1.73 million. - PNA

The gang war between “Bloods” and “Crips” in Dumaguete and the neighboring town of Sibulan continues unabated with the recent shooting to death of a gang member along Perdices Street, the city's main thoroughfare early dawn Thursday.

Jelo Rosales, 15, and a native of Pamplona, Negros Occidental sustained a gunshot wound at the back of his head that cause his instantaneous death.

Initial investigations disclosed that a chase between two persons ensued from the Quezon Park before bystanders heard a burst of gunfire.

Recovered at the crime scene were a home-made .22 caliber revolver with five live ammunitions, an improvised mask, and an eye spray believed to be owned by the victim.

Early morning of the same day, a sales lady found a deformed slug of a cal. 45 pistol inside a nearby shop where she worked.

Last week, Marlon Huquiriza, a gang member was fatally shot here last week allegedly by rival gang members.

But police records showed that Huquiriza had a pending robbery case in Valencia and was also tagged as among the culprits in a number of robbery incidents in Sibulan.

His companion, Raymond Sakam is presently placed behind bars for illegal possession of firearms. (PNA)

Husband Found Wife Having Extra-Marital Affair

By Sheryll Mundo, ABS-CBN News

A female staff member from the Clinton Foundation who shouted at Vice-President Jejomar Binay and asked him to leave a VIP area where former US President Bill Clinton was staying before his speech at the Manila Hotel has apologized.

Binay said he was shooed away by the staffer from the VIP holding area where Clinton would wait before speaking at the Manila Hotel forum entitled "Embracing Our Common Humanity."

"Sabi ko lang (I said) you're ordering us to leave the room, but don't shout. You know I happen to be the Vice President of the Republic of the Philippines," the vice president recounted saying to the female staffer.

Binay said that he obediently exited the VIP room and that the female staffer immediately apologized to him.

"Sabi ko OK lang. Kailangan titindig tayo at punahin iyon (I told her it was OK. We should stand up and call their attention to their mistakes also)," the vice president added.

He added that Filipinos should always hold their heads high especially when they are being mocked and disrespected. "Sana lagi taas noo tayo kapag tayo minamata o hindi ginagalang," he said.

A staff member from the Office of the Vice President said that they will write a letter to the Clinton Foundation to seek clarification on the incident.

The staff said they made arrangements with the US Secret Service for the presence of Binay at the event.

The Clinton Foundation staff member who shouted at the Vice-President said she was not informed by the US Secret Service about the arrangements made for Binay.

Three political ambassadors who were coterminous with former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo have been reappointed to their respective posts while the former head of the Manila Electric Co. (Meralco) was named new ambassador to Tokyo.

Senior officials of the Department of Foreign Affairs, who asked not to be named, told The STAR that former Ambassadors Francisco Benedicto, Maria Consuelo Puyat-Reyes and Mercedes Arrastia-Tuason have been reappointed.

The officials said Manuel Lopez was nominated ambassador to Japan after former ambassador to Tokyo Domingo Siazon ended his tour of duty last Sept. 30.

Benedicto was reappointed ambassador to Beijing. Puyat-Reyes, the longest-serving ambassador from the Ramos administration, was reappointed to the Philippine embassy in Chile, while Tuason was reappointed Philippine ambassador to Vatican. - Phil Star

Philippine Education / 4 Pinoy Teachers Honored in China
« on: November 13, 2010, 06:33:43 PM »
Four Filipino teachers stationed in China’s northern provinces of Liaoning and Jilin have been named by the provincial government as “Outstanding Foreign Experts.”

Frederick S. Lomibao was cited for his work as an English-language teacher, and the recognition buoyed up the pride and spirits of Filipinos in China, which recently arrested a former Filipino teacher in the southern province of Guangdong on charges of drug-smuggling.

Lomibao received his award from Liaoning Governor Chen Zhenggao and was cited “for his outstanding contribution to the economic, scientific, technological, educational and cultural development of the province,” according to the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA).

The DFA also reported that three Filipino teachers in neighboring Jilin province to include Ma. Socorro Rodriguez, Arnel Genzola and Lileth Mesias Reyes also received the “Outstanding Foreign Expert” award” from the Jilin Provincial Government.

They were cited “for their contributions to the province's economic and social development” and the DFA’s report did not say in what field the three were being recognized.

Lomibao told the Philippine embassy in Beijing that the award “will not only bring honor to our country but also give inspiration to other Filipinos at home and abroad.”

Lomibao has been teaching English in China for six years, and is now employed at a private school in Liaoning’s Yingkou City. “When I was with the other awardees, I (felt) very proud representing our country (in China),” he added. - PNA

Government workers will receive the remaining half of their 13th month pay and P5,000 cash gift beginning Nov. 15, Budget Secretary Florencio Abad said yesterday.

Pursuant to Budget Circular 2010-01, the Department of Budget and Management
(DBM) has released P12.8 billion to fund the balance of benefits. The first half of the 13th month pay had been disbursed last May.

State workers will also get more than half of their 13th month pay because of basic salary adjustments under the Salary Standardization Law III. The DBM will release an additional P2.1 billion to fund the adjustment. The 13-month pay is equivalent to one-month salary while the P5,000 cash gift applies across the board.

All government employees with the exemption of consultants and job-order workers will receive the 13th month pay and the cash gift.

Boxing and Boxers / Pacquiao Not Training Well is Just For Show?
« on: November 13, 2010, 06:13:03 PM »
By Kenneth Ragpala,

John Scully, former super middleweight intercontinental champion and current analyst for ESPN Boxing, does not believe that Pacquiao’s camp is plagued with distractions. Scully also went into details how the same tactic was supposedly employed by Muhammad Ali’s camp many years ago, when Ali fought many thought an inferior opponent.

“What people fail to realize is that 24/7 is an edited show.”

He also believes that Pacquiao will be the winner against former welterweight titlist Antonio Margarito. That said, Scully still believes that Margarito can still pull an upset.

“If I have to bet $10 right now, I would bet on Pacquiao.”
