‘Nomophobia’ named ‘People’s Word of 2018’ by UK dictionary

Based on the results of a popular vote, Cambridge Dictionary has named "nomophobia," the "fear or worry at the idea of being without your mobile phone or unable to use it," as word of the year.

PBA: Compton absolutely thrilled after finally getting one over SMB in playoffs

June Mar Fajardo is the ultimate game changer. The reigning four-time league MVP is a great influence in game results and Alaska head coach Alex Compton is very much aware of that even after his Aces just ended San Miguel's season following a win in the 2018 PBA Governors' Cup quarterfinals Wednesday. Alaska dominated the Beermen on their way to the semifinals but Compton says that things would have been different if June Mar was operating in full capacity. Dealing with a shin injury all conference long, the Alaska game was only Fajardo's third appearance in the Governors' Cup. June Mar is still obviously not 100 percent and it showed, playing only 22 minutes in the loss and scoring six points. "I think the most dominant force in the league matters," Compton said of June Mar. "He didn't play most of this conference and he's just getting his groove back. June Mar changes everything. It's not an accident that he got four straight MVPs, the kid is special," he added. Still, Compton can't hide the fact that Alaska finally beating San Miguel in the playoffs means something. Since 2015, the Beermen have dominated Alaska in the playoffs. Half of San Miguel's six championships in that span came at the expense of the Aces. In the 2018 Commissioner's Cup semifinals, San Miguel also ended Alaska's campaign. However, Compton is not naive and he acknowledges that the Beermen's greatest weapon was not fully functional in this series win for the Aces. "Am I happy that we beat San Miguel? Absolutely. I'm ecstatic, thrilled," Compton said. "Do I also recognize that our whole league has a problem because Christian [Standhardinger] is great? And June Mar is legendary? Ibang usapan siguro kung 5'10" sila pareho. Medyo malaking mama yung dalawa eh," he added.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

‘Pokémon Go’ update encourages healthier gamers

The latest update for "Pokmon Go" will further encourage its players to get out and get fit because the game will now link to step-tracking apps on a smartphone. The new feature, dubbed Adventure Sync, will tie in with Google Fit for Android or Apple Health for iOS to track player movements. This will be a plus for gamers because it means they no longer need to keep the game running on screen to hatch Pokmon eggs or get achievements, according to a Niantic developer blog. Adventure Sync will also manage push notifications to tell players if an egg has hatched or they've earned more Buddy Candies from all the daily walking "Pokmon Go" trainers do. The update just rolled out o...Keep on reading: ‘Pokémon Go’ update encourages healthier gamers.....»»

Microsoft to keep working with US military, despite concerns

REDMOND, Washington --- Microsoft plans to continue to provide its technology to the U.S. military, despite worries that advances in the field of artificial intelligence could empower weapons to act autonomously and kill people.

PVL: Pacres out to prove her worth

Dimdim Pacres is out to prove that she’s still a vital cog for the University of Sto. Tomas. When Tacloban head coach Nes Pamilar asked Tigresses mentor Kungfu Reyes for the services of Pacres, the Cebuana native saw it as an opportunity to make up for her less than stellar performance in the last season of the UAAP.  In just two games with the Fighting Warays in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Open Conference, the opposite hitter has been showing her brilliance on offense averaging 19.5 points per outing. On Saturday, Pacres dropped 21 points including 18 from attacks in the Fighting Warays’ 18-25, 25-20, 25-22, 20-25, 15-9, win over Pocari Sweat-Air Force to snap a three-game losing slump to end the first round elimination.  “Malaking opportunity siya kasi doon ko lang ma-prove ulit ‘yung self ko kasi ang panget nga ng pinakita ko nu’ng (UAAP) season,” said Pacres, who joined Tacloban last week together with Jeannie Delos Reyes. The hitter was considered as one of UST’s top hitters heading into Season 80 together with Sisi Rondina and then rookie Fil-Italian Milena Alessandrini especially with EJ Laure sitting out because of a shoulder injury after a great run in Season 79 and in pre-season tournaments. But Pacres admitted that she underperformed in the last UAAP tournament and this is a chance for her to bring back her dangerous form especially with newcomers vying for position in the Tigresses' lineup which include top rookie opposite hitter Eya Laure.     “Kailangan ko talaga i-prove sa kanila at ibalik ko ‘yung sarili ko kung paano ako maglaro sa loob,” said Pacres, who also played in the Philippine Superliga Invitational for Smart. Pacres is one of Pamilar’s replacements for Judith Abil and Seth Rodriguez, who were recalled by the University of the East. “Nakipag-tune up kami sa UST sakto naman na nakausap ko si coach Kungfu at Rev. Fr. (Jannel) Abogado. Nagpaalam ako kay Father so maganda naman ‘yung tanggap niya sabi niya, ‘sige kung kailangan mo na paglaruin mo na,’" said Pamilar. “Actually dalawa ‘yan ‘yung isa (Alina Bicar) naglalaro pa sa Unigames siguro pagbalik ng isa mas magiging buo kami.” Pacres debuted last Wednesday, scoring 18 points in a five-set loss to Ateneo-Motolite. “Kasi naubos ako,” she said of her last outing." Kakabalik ko lang kasi ng laro kasi ang tagal ko nakapahinga kasi simula sa PSL pa ko huling naglaro, sa ust training-training tapos tuneup, pahinga. So kakabalik ko lang talaga as in sa animan.” Against Pocari Sweat, Pacres pounded 18 kills and had three kill blocks including the intangibles on floor defense that helped Tacloban escape with the win. Now steadily jelling with her team, expect Pacres to be at the forefront of the Fighting Warays’ drive for a Final Four spot.     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»
