Philippines falls to Kazakhstan in FIBA World Cup Asian Qualifiers



MANILA, Philippines – The Filipino cagers were warned against the shooters of Kazakhstan but disregarded them that resulted to a sorry 92-88 loss on Friday, November 30, 2018 at the Mall of Asia Arena.

It’s been more than 3 months since the protagonists met at the 2018 Asian Games where the Rain Or Shine Elasto Painters represented the Philippines and convincingly won over Kazakhstan.

Tonight, the squads met again for the 5th window of the FIBA World Cup Asian Qualifiers and the Kazakhs faced a different Philippine Team where the top players from different PBA ball clubs donned the national tri-colors.

It was a rough start for Team Pilipinas as they missed a bunch of shots and even hit few unusual airballs.

Midway of the opener, the Filipinos finally found their rhythm led by Beermen June Mar Fajardo and Marcio Lassiter who erased the Kazakhstan advantage.

At the end of 1st quarter, the home squad led the visitors by a slim 18-17 points.

Kazakhstan found a way to regain its lead in the 2nd period. The Kazakhs made a living from turning the loose balls and turnovers into valuable digits spearheaded by Alexander Zhigulin.

The early phase of the 2nd period was too timid for Philippines. It was only Matthew Wright who chipped in for his team and in fact earned his points from the foul line.

Not only Kazakhstan beat Philippines in fastbreaks, even in outside shooting, the visitors had the edge over the home team.

Zhigulin had been terrific in the game, where he made double-digits too early. With this, Coach Yeng Guiao banked on Gabe Norwood who’s also known for his glue-tight defense on prolific scorers.

Coach Guiao’s decision to assign Norwood on Zhigulin plus the hustle plays of Scottie Thompson paid off as they managed to cut the 8-point Kazakhstan-lead to just 40-39 at the half.

Philippines got some good shots in the 3rd quarter but Kazakhstan fired back to make it a seesaw battle in terms of scoring.

Alexander Zhigulin and Stanley Pringle put on a show as the players traded numerous baskets that delighted the crowd.

Prior to the game, Coach Yeng warned his boys of Kazakhstan’s shooter. But despite the caution, the nationals still gave their opponents multiple open looks from the three point territory that left them chasing the Kazakhs, 65-62 after the third.

Philippines’ started the final chapter with a smaller lineup. Although included in the lineup, Greg Slaughter didn’t do much both offensively and defensively. Once again, Kazakhstan’s lead had gone up to 5.

The Kazakhs’ confidence was too high that they kept on attacking and challenging the Filipino big men relentlessly and even dunked on them several times.

Come 5-minute mark, Philippines had the chance to grab the lead through the hulking efforts of June Mar Fajardo and Stanley Pringle.

Philippines’ lead didn’t take that long as Kazakhstan quickly snatched it. The visitors possessed a 5-point lead with 50 seconds left in the clock but Marcio Lassiter bucketed a trey to make it a one-possession ballgame.

After the timeout, the Kazakhs made a terrific play to bump up their lead to 4 and narrowed down the chance of the Filipinos in surviving the game.

At the sound of the final horn, Kazakhstan officially pulled an upset against the host country Philippines, 92-88.


With the loss, Philippines tied at 3rd place in their group with Japan that has an identical 5-4 record behind Iran and league-leader Australia.

Philippines will have the chance to redeem itself against Iran on Monday, December 3, 2018, 7:30 pm at the Mall of Asia Arena.

The Scores

Kazakhstan 92 – Zhigulin 30, Bykov 20, Yergali 12, Murzagaliyev 11, Kuanov 8, Bazhin 7, Marchuk 4, Chsherbak 0, Lapchenko 0, Gavrilov 0.

Philippines 88 – Pringle 29, Fajardo 14, Lassiter 13, Tenorio 8, Norwood 7, Thompson 6, Wright 5, Aguilar 4, Erram 2, Cabagnot 0, Belga 0, Slaughter 0.

Quarters: 17-18, 40-39, 65-62, 92-88

Not alone: PH lung cancer community inspires hope in the face of disease



MANILA, Philippines – The fight against lung cancer doesn’t have to be a solo battle.

To help Filipino patients and their loved ones rise above this challenging condition, biopharmaceutical company AstraZeneca has partnered with the Philippine Society of Medical Oncology (PSMO), along with local support groups such as the Cancer Coalition Philippines (CCP), and the Philippine Alliance of Patient Organizations (PAPO) to launch LVNG With Lung Cancer, an online resource portal for patients across all stages of the disease.

Breakthrough lung cancer pill Osimertinib shows promise at stopping disease
From left: Dr. Mary Claire Vega-Soliman, President of the Philippine Society of Medical Oncology and Head of the Tumor Clinic of East Avenue Medical Center; Carla Comendador Britanico, a patient living with Stage IV lung cancer for more than 6 years; Dr. Ma. Luisa T. Abesamis-Tiambeng, Director of the Cancer Center at the Cardinal Santos Medical Center; and Dr. Paolo dela Rosa, Medical Advisor and Medical Oncologist at AstraZeneca Philippines.

“Being diagnosed with lung cancer can make patients feel anxious and hopeless, which is why support is vital,” explains Dr. Donald Ray Josue, Medical Affairs Head of AstraZeneca Philippines. “LVNG With provides support by forming a community of patients and their loved ones so they can inspire one another and exchange helpful information about their treatment. Through the network, patients may realize that while lung cancer is not yet curable, it is very treatable. There’s still so much more for them to look forward to in their lives.”

Struggling with stigma

Lung cancer is the top cancer killer worldwide, with 2.09 million incidences and 1.76 million fatalities this year alone according to the GLOBOCAN 2018 report by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC). But while a majority of lung cancer deaths involve tobacco use, non-smokers are also at serious risk.

“‘Are you a smoker?’ Many lung cancer patients get this question, but the truth is, different factors cause the disease,” said Dr. Denky Shoji Dela Rosa, a medical oncologist from the University of the East Ramon Magsaysay Memorial Medical Center and St. Luke’s Medical Center . “Lack of awareness has been a source of stigma because people often put the blame on the individual. This makes it difficult for lung cancer patients to find support and form communities.”

A 2015 study on the European Respiratory Journal notes that about 25 percent of lung cancer incidences are not linked to smoking, and that the rate of never-smokers diagnosed with the disease has been increasing. The American Cancer Society identifies several causes, such as exposure to second-hand smoke, diesel exhaust, asbestos, radioactive radon gas, and chemicals released by burning coal products.

Adding to the stigma, new patients tend to think that their illness is a hopeless case. This leaves them with a sense of isolation that worsens their anxiety over their diagnosis.

LVNG With addresses these stigmas by dispelling myths that prevent lung cancer patients from seeking proper treatment and seeing hope in their condition. The community also empowers patients with information that enable them to reach out to medical professionals so they can learn more about treatment options.

Dr. Mary Claire Soliman, president of the Philippine Society of Medical Oncology and member of Cancer Coalition Philippines also emphasizes that, “Standard evidence-based medicine is the way to go in treatment. I understand how the promise of alternative medicines (‘natural”, “herbal” or “nutraceutical medicine”) may be tempting, especially with their claims that they do not have side effects. The fact of the matter is that there is very little evidence to support these claims.

A recently published study by Skyler B Johnson at the Journal of the National Cancer Institute this January 2018 revealed that patients who initially chose alternative medicine over conventional lung cancer treatment had a more than twofold increase risk of dying. At the end of the day, alternative treatments should not replace standard evidence-based medicine.”

Breakthrough treatment

Chemotherapy—or the use of drugs to kill and stunt malignant tumors—is usually thought of as the only treatment for cancer. “The fact is, various options are now available depending on the patient’s diagnosis, preference, and recommendations from the healthcare team. Among these include surgery to remove affected lung tissues, radiation therapy that use high doses of radiation to destroy cancer cells, and targeted drug therapy.”, Dr. Maria Luisa Abesamis-Tiambeng of Cardinal Santos Medical Center emphasized.

Targeted drug therapy may be recommended based on biopsy findings. Through biomarker testing, the biopsy can reveal genetic mutations in cancer cells that can be targeted by drugs designed to zero in on those cellular abnormalities.

Therapeutic advances have made targeted drug therapy the standard of care for personalized medicine in the fight against certain lung cancers. One breakthrough is Tagrisso (Osimertinib), an oral tablet from a class of drugs called tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKI) that target tumors with epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) mutations.

Tagrisso (Osimertinib) is a third-generation EGFR TKI that has shown better precision and power at stopping lung cancer growth and improving patient survival. A double-blind FLAURA study shows that Tagrisso delivers 18.9 months of median progression-free survival, nearly twice as long as older drugs that deliver a median of 10.2 months. Tagrisso (Osimertinib) also reduces the risk of lung cancer metastasis on the central nervous system by 52 percent, and lowers the risk of death by 37 percent based on its preliminary data.

“These results have made Tagrisso (Osimertinib) the recommended and preferred first-line treatment by international guidelines for advanced and metastatic non-small cell lung cancer—the most prevalent type of lung cancer—that tested positive for EGFR,” Dr. Josue adds.

EGFR biomarker testing is available across laboratories and hospitals nationwide including the Chong Hua Hospital, Hi-Precision Diagnostics, Lung Center of the Philippines, Manila HealthTek Inc., National Kidney and Transplant Institute, St. Luke’s Medical Center Global City, and The Medical City.

This article is published as part of the celebration of November as Lung Cancer Month. It is not intended to replace the advice of a healthcare professional. Always consult your doctor.

Osimertinib is a prescription medicine. Patients should consult their physicians regarding their condition and their treatment.

Woman gets help from Twitter users, finds childhood friend in just 24 hours



MANILA, Philippines – A woman sought the help of Twitter to find her childhood friend. Amazingly, she was able to find the other woman in less than 24 hours!
Woman gets help from Twitter users, finds childhood friend in just 24 hours

The incredible story began when Brianna of Mississippi posted on Twitter to seek help in finding the girl in the photo with her as a child, taken during a dinner cruise. She had forgotten the girl’s name but since they were practically best friends at the time, she wished to be reunited with the girl and perhaps meet her again, now that they are adults.

“Hey Twitter, I met this girl on a dinner cruise in Hawaii in 2006. We were basically best friends for that night so I need y’all to help me find my best friend cause I miss her and I need to see how she’s doing now. Please retweet this so we can be reunited,” Brianna tweeted.


That night, she fell asleep with the post getting just 9 retweets. She did not really expect much from the post, considering that she only had a picture and couldn’t even remember the other girl’s name or where she was from.

It was like trying to find a very small needle in a giant haystack.

The next morning, however, Brianna was shocked to discover that the post had been liked and retweeted tens of thousands of times! At the end of the day, it had over 270k likes and more than 115k retweets. It also had hundreds of comments.

But more amazingly, one of these comments was made by a girl named Heii. To prove that she was the girl who was on that cruise and was Brianna’s long-lost childhood friend, she posted a photo of herself holding a snapshot of her family taken from the cruise.

“Heard you were looking for me,” Heii commented just a few hours after Brianna’s tweeted their photo.


“It's been literal years since I was last on Twitter and the first thing I see is a search party for my a*s.”

It’s not surprising that both girls are excited to meet each other in person again.

Woman gets help from Twitter users, finds childhood friend in just 24 hours

But now that she found her childhood friend via Twitter in less than 24 hours, Brianna posted another mission as a joke: to ask Twitter to find her a husband as well…

WATCH: Filipino actor stars as F4 member in Indonesian ‘Meteor Garden’



MANILA, Philippines – A Filipino actor is making a name in the Indonesian television as he acts alongside big shot Indonesian actors in the “Siapa Takut Jatuh Cinta (STJC),” the Indonesian remake of the widely popular Taiwanese drama series “Meteor Garden.”

Teejay Marquez is a 25-year-old Pinoy actor, dancer, endorser and vlogger. He started his acting career back in 2009, appearing in a few ABS-CBN and GMA shows. The “tween star” earned his fame in Indonesia when one of his dubsmash videos became viral. Since then, Marquez had a stream of Indonesian fans and followers supporting for his movies, television series and endorsements. He even launched his own mobile phone app.

Marquez’s latest project in Indonesia is again making raves. The Pinoy actor starred as “Sean,” one of the F4 members, whose personality would be similar to the original F4’s “Xi Men”, portrayed by Ken Chu. The “Siapa Takut Jatuh Cinta (STJC)” ran for eight months up until October 2018.

Marquez added that he was really a fan of the original “Meteor Garden” and got excited when he was chosen. He said, “I had this idea of the story and sobrang excited ako nu’ng nalaman ko [na nakuha ko ’yung role], kasi big deal dito sa atin ’yun.”

The teen actor revealed how he felt when he finally met his Indonesian co-stars. Marquez said, “Noong nagsimula na mag-promo, gumawa na ako ng looktest, doon na nag-sink in na iba itong project ko ngayon, I knew it was going to be big kasi mga high-end ’yung mga kasama ko.”

Marquez shared that he learned the Bahasa language seriously. At first, he began learning with a tutor but when more opportunities came, Marquez had to hire a private teacher who can adjust to his hectic schedule. Even with that, the actor admits he still has to practice more. Marquez said, “Diretso na ako magsalita pero ’yung accent they find it funny kaya parang kahit anong sabihin ko natatawa sila. Comedian ba ako? Sige na nga!”

Marquez is currently in the Philippines for the holidays and taking a short break from work. Last year, he signed with Arnold Vegafria’s management outfit, ALV Talent Circuit, and at the same time signed up with Regal Entertainment. His manager, Vegafria shared that they are hoping Marquez gets more projects in his own country soon.

Verafria said, “With what he’s done in Indonesia, Marquez could rightfully be called our ambassador of goodwill. It’s rare to have someone so young and talented waving the Philippine flag proudly in foreign shores. But more than that, what’s admirable is that he’s managed to do all this while maintaining a very clean and wholesome image, making him a perfect role model for our Pinoy youth.”

Thousands of teachers heeded the call of teachers’ group Alliance of Concerned Teachers- Philippines (ACT-Philippines) to protest their appeals and sentiments to the government. The group urged the teachers to participate in a “sit-down strike”, where instead of teaching their regular lessons, the teachers will talk about the “crisis” in the country.

ACT-Philippines explained, “Puputulin natin ang regular na daloy ng pagtuturo sa mga paaralan sa pamamagitan ng sit-down strike. Sa halip na regular na leksyon, magtuturo tayo hinggil sa krisis na dinaranas ng sambayanan at ipauunawa sa mga estudyante, magulang at publiko na ang ating pagkilos ay hindi lamang para sa ating mga sarili, kundi para sa karapatan ng lahat ng mamamayan para sa disenteng pamumuhay.”

Calls for salary increase, upgrades in allowance, higher 2019 education budget

On ACT-Philippines' Facebook page, they shared their sentiments that with the rising costs of commodities and services, the teachers’ salaries just aren't enough. They pointed out that if the government can increase the salaries of their officials, police force and military, pay hike for teachers should also be considered.

ACT-Philippines’ statement wrote,"Samantala, nagpapasasa sa 150% hanggang 223% na dagdag sweldo ang gabinete, mga mambabatas at pangulo hanggang 2019! Dinoble ang basic pay ng pulis at sundalo ngayong taon at itataas pa sa susunod na taon ang sweldo ng mga opisyales ng PNP at AFP.”

The teachers group also called for the increase of their Personnel Economic Relief Allowance (P.E.R.A), which they claimed has not increased since 2009.

ACT-Philippines also criticized the Duterte administration's TRAIN law as the cause of the crisis they are experiencing. They stated, “Tinitiyak ng administrasyon ni Duterte sa pamamagitan ng mga neoliberal na polisiya ang dambuhalang kita ng mga dayuhan at malalaking negosyante habang ginugutom ang mamamayan sa taas ng buwis, presyo ng bilihin at karampot na sahod.”

ACT-Philippines renewed their calls to the Congress and the Senate to return the cuts made for the 2019 education budget. They stated, “Nagpapatuloy ang ating paggiit sa Konggreso at Senado na ibalik ang bilyun-bilyong kaltas sa badyet ng rehimeng Duterte sa edukasyon para sa taong 2019. Isasadlak ng kaltas ang sistema ng edukasyon sa mas malalalang krisis sa kulang na guro, kawani, klasrum, kagamitan at bawas na benepisyo.”

The teachers group stood firm with their calls for “Sweldo itaas! Pera dagdagan! Train law, ibasura! Badyet sa edukasyon, dagdagan, huwag bawasan!"

ACT-Philippines calls the November-29 sit-down strike a success. They noted that in the National Capital Region (NCR), they had thousands of teachers from a total of 366 schools. They also had teachers from Bulacan, Nueva Ecija, Davao Region and Cagayan de Oro.

Esports to make historic debut in SEA Games 2019



MANILA, Philippines – Esports is now recognized as a medal event at the 2019 Southeast Asian Games (SEAG).
Esports to make historic debut in SEA Games 2019

The big announcement was made by Razer, leading global lifestyle brand for gamers, together with the Philippine SEA Games Organizing Committee (PhilSGOC) and the Philippine Olympic Committee (POC) on Wednesday, November 28 at the Mariott Hotel in Pasay City.


Today, esports is the entertainment of choice and an aspiration for youth and millennials. There are more than 2.3 billion gamers worldwide, and 71 percent of millennials are proud to call themselves gamers. The global esports audience is expected to reach 276 million by 2022, and esports itself is projected to be a billion-dollar industry by next year.

“The Philippines is the first host country to stage an esports tournament as a medal event. This lends credence to professional gaming as a true world-class sporting contest, as it engages a new generation of gaming fans,” said Alan Peter Cayetano, PhilSGOC Chairman.

“Razer is a pioneer and a prime mover in esports, and we cannot ask for a better partner in this historic journey,” Cayetano added.


As the official esports partner of SEA Games 2019, Razer will draw upon its expertise and experience in esports, as well as its ecosystem of hardware, software and services.

This includes facilitating discussions between PhilSGOC and various game publishers to select the games that will be featured at the SEA Games esports tournament.

Razer and PhilSGOC announced that Moonton, the publisher behind mobile game "Mobile Legends: Bang Bang", is the first game partner for the esports events.

The final line-up of titles to be contested at SEA Games 2019 will be revealed in the next few months.

A total of 6 games will be included, comprised of two mobile games, two PC games, and two console games.

Razer will be supporting the final crop of Team Philippines esports athletes who will represent the host country at the finals.

Venue of the games are yet to be finalized, with Clark New City or Metro Manila being the top choices.

Razer as the world’s leading brand in esports, supports 18 champion teams with players from 25 countries. Team Razer athletes have won over US$10 million in prize money in the past two years alone. Razer has over 50 million registered users who use its ecosystem of gaming products and services.

UP knocks out Adamson, faces Ateneo in UAAP Finals



MANILA, Philippines – The University of the Philippines (UP) Fighting Maroons erased the twice-to-beat advantage of the Adamson University Soaring Falcons, 89-87 to face the defending champions, the Ateneo De Manila University (ADMU) Blue Eagles on Wednesday, November 28, 2018 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

This will be UP Maroons' first UAAP Finals berth in 32 years!

It’s win-or-go-home for both squads so players were all out in order to take the last finals spot.

It didn’t take Adamson and UP that long to impress the crowd. As soon as the ball was tipped off, ballers sprawled and scrambled on the floor to fight for every possession.

AdU center Papi Sarr was the first man to be called for an unsportsmanlike foul as the game intensified.

The leading candidate for this season’s MVP race, Bright Akhuetie, muscled his way up to give his team an early lead.

Adamson fought back and narrowed the scoring gap via free throws but UP cut its opponent’s celebration short as the De Liano brothers: Juan and Javi rained it from downtown that gave the Fighting Maroons a 10-point lead, 26-16 at the end of the first.

The Falcons soared in the 2nd quarter as Sean Manganti and Jerrick Ahanmisi led the flock and managed to cut the lead down to just 3.

AdU even cut the margin to just a point but Juan Gomez De Liano heated up and launched more long distance shots to prevent the Falcons from taking the lead away from his team.

It was a three-point shootout between Juan Gomez De Liano and Jerrick Ahanmisi in the latter phase of the second but it was the U.P. guard who prevailed as he bagged 20 points and gave his gang a 51-42 advantage at the half.

De Liano continued to dominate the rainbow territory as the 2nd half started. There was no stopping the lefty shooter not even a triple team can cool down his waxing hot hands.

Ahanmisi ended Adamson’s scoring drought midway of the third with a seamless catch and shoot triple but still they were behind UP by a double-digit.

Adamson got back on track late in the 3rd period as Jerry Pingoy and Simon Camacho led the offensive assault which alarmed Coach Bo Perasol.

Coach Perasol worried more at the 3rd minute mark of the penultimate quarter as his prized ward Bright Akhuetie got hurt and Juan Gomez De Liano committed his 4th personal foul.

The Falcons capitalized on the absence of Akhuetie and Gomez De Liano on the floor as their late rally gave them a 67-64 advantage at the end of the third.

It seemed that Coach Franz Pumaren had discovered UP’s kryptonite: Take out Juan Gomez De Liano from the rotation to win the game.

Gomez De Liano re-entered the game at the 8th minute mark with 4 personal fouls along with Akhuetie to bounce back and reclaim their lead in the final chapter of their do-or-die showdown.

U.P. regained the lead 74-73 via Jun Manzo’s breakaway layup after a series of hustle plays and defensive stops.

Under a minute left in the game, the Fighting Maroons led the Soaring Falcons by just a point until Jun Manzo added 2 more and left Adamson with 10 ticks.

Adamson had the chance to tie the game at 78 and Jerome Lastimosa delivered a trey from the corner left off the inbounds that sent the game into an overtime.

Simon Camacho broke the deadlock a minute and a half after the extra period had commenced and Jerome Lastimosa cracked another triple to increased their lead, 84-78.

The Fighting Maroons made a scoring run and snatched the lead from the Soaring Falcons but Jerome Lastimosa once again leveled the game at 87.

Paul Desiderio melted the clock during UP’s possession and confidently sank a mid range jumper for a slim 89-87, 2-point edge with 6.6 left.

Adamson had an opportunity to send the game into another extra 5 minutes of ballgame or win the game but this time the Falcons ran out of luck and officially handed over the remaining UAAP Finals spot to the Fighting Maroons.

UP will now face the defending champions and season’s top-seeded team, the Ateneo De Manila Blue Eagles which will start on Saturday for a best-of-three match up.

The Scores

UP 89 – Gomez de LiaƱo Ju. 30, Desiderio 16, Akhuetie 13, Gomez de LiaƱo Ja. 8, Tungcab 6, Prado 6, Dario 5, Manzo 4, Jaboneta 1, Lim 0, Vito 0.

Adamson 87 – Ahanmisi 20, Lastimosa 17, Sarr 16, Camacho 10, Pingoy 7, Manganti 6, Magbuhos V. 6, Espeleta 2, Mojica 2, Bernardo 1.

Quarters: 26-16, 51-42, 64-67, 78-78, 89-87.
