Voguing revives as Paris minorities strike a political pose

PARIS (AP) --- In garish makeup and dangerously high heels, a black male dancer's outstretched arms aggressively slice the air in time to the Paris nightclub music until suddenly, he drops "dead" on the floor. Vogue, the '80s dance movement Madonna popularized in her hit 1990 song of the same name, is experiencing a revival in France. It's not just a flamboyant pastime. For many minority French communities who feel alienated over tensions arising from divisive anti-gay marriage protests and the anti-immigration National Front, it's a statement of defiance. Many gay black and Arab youths --- especially those from Paris' less affluent and religiously conservative suburbs --- see ...Keep on reading: Voguing revives as Paris minorities strike a political pose.....»»

AP source: Hosmer, Padres reach preliminary eight-year deal

By Janie McCauley, Associated Press PEORIA, Ariz. (AP) — Just the thought of free agent first baseman Eric Hosmer joining the downtrodden, youthful San Diego Padres sent a morning jolt through the spring training clubhouse. The on-field vibe seemed equally cheery, as country music blared as players went to work under sunny skies in the Arizona desert. Hosmer reached a preliminary agreement on an eight-year contract with the Padres, pending a physical. A person with direct knowledge of the deal confirmed the tentative deal, speaking on the condition of anonymity Sunday because there had been no formal announcement of Hosmer's potential signing. It would become official once he passes a physical early in the week. While the final position players reported Sunday — most were already in spring camp — ahead of Monday's first full-squad workout, Hosmer wasn't expected in the desert until at least Monday. Hosmer, who spent his first seven major league seasons with Kansas City, would receive a reported $144 million. Padres manager Andy Green could only discuss the acquisition of Hosmer in generalities since it isn't final, but was hopeful of having his full team together Monday. "I can't replicate the magic of the first day twice, so, yeah, you want him or anyone to be there when you're talking," Green said. "... Not that there is any real magic on the first day, but it's always nice to have your camp settled as early as possible." The 28-year-old Hosmer batted a career-high .318 in 2017 and matched his best from the previous season with 25 home runs. A four-time Gold Glover and All-Star in '16, he drove in 94 runs and scored 98 for the Royals last season. He also had a career-best .385 on-base percentage. Veteran right-hander Chris Young also came to the Padres this offseason after most recently pitching three seasons for the Royals, calling Hosmer "one of my all-time favorite teammates" who brings "a competitive fire" that will be much-welcomed. He hadn't been in touch with Hosmer in recent days but they did communicate earlier in the winter when Young chose San Diego and discussed that it was among Hosmer's top choices, too. Young said he didn't want to add any pressure to Hosmer making a decision. "Hos is a legitimate All-Star," Young said. "I think he brings a veteran experience, he's a winner, he's a champion and a great mentor for young guys. So I think he fits all the categories I think you're looking in terms of a teammate, a leader, a competitor. I think he makes any clubhouse better, much less this one." While most every club feels a sense of optimism this time of year with a fresh slate as spring training begins, the Padres were especially upbeat as they got going early Sunday at the idea of the power-hitting Hosmer in their lineup and at first base. San Diego went 71-91 last season for fourth in the NL West above only the San Francisco Giants, and the Padres haven't been to the playoffs since losing in the 2006 NL Division Series. Green knows what someone such as Hosmer could mean to a club's chances of turning it around. "It was always time to start contending for me," said Green, beginning his third season as San Diego skipper. "It was always go out and win opening day and go out and win every game. I haven't been very good at that, I have to acknowledge that. At this point in time, opening day has been cruel to me so far. "But I think we show up with the expectation of winning the first game of the season and don't waver from that no matter who's in that clubhouse. Does it get easier if certain people are in that clubhouse? Yeah, it sure does." Wil Myers, who played 154 games at first for San Diego last season, was ready to move positions as needed. He can play elsewhere in the infield and all three outfield spots and Green said he would be "magically" taking fly balls in right field Sunday. "Wil's been great with everything that's ever been asked of him," Green said. Myers said the Padres communicated with him during the offseason about the possibility of adding Hosmer, saying: "When I saw that possibility I was very excited. To be able to add a player like that I think is very cool." Myers played in 2010 with Hosmer in the minors with the Royals. "I know nothing's definite right now but just to be able to hopefully add a guy like that is pretty special," Myers said. "He's a great guy. He's going to be a guy that fits really well in this clubhouse. ... You've heard a lot of great things about him, what he does in the clubhouse and who he is as a person.".....»»

Nothing personal as Marcelino twins get one over former team

Zark's Burger-Lyceum coach Topex Robinson knew that something was up with twins Jaycee and Jayvee Marcelino in the game against Akari-Adamson on Tuesday. With the twins facing their old school, the youthful mentor wasn't surprised with how motivated the Jaycee and Javee were in their clash in the 2018 PBA D-League Aspirants' Cup. "They really are driven. Remember that they came from Adamson. Before they found their way to Lyceum, they used to play for Adamson. So they really are motivated to play, and they really are enjoying themselves," said Robinson. Jaycee poured six of his 19 points in the last five minutes, while also grabbing two boards and two steals in the Jawbreake...Keep on reading: Nothing personal as Marcelino twins get one over former team.....»»

Back to dominant ways as Zark’s-Lyceum sticks to system

Zark's Burger-Lyceum brought back memories of its dominant ways in the NCAA as it ran its foe to the ground Tuesday in the 2018 PBA D-League Aspirants' Cup. Playing at a frenetic pace, the Jawbreakers ran roughshod over Batangas-EAC to deliver the 37-point beatdown, 112-75. Just like in the NCAA, in the middle of it all was CJ Perez, who led with 21 points, 10 rebounds, and three steals in the win. Coach Topex Robinson believes that Zark's Burger-Lyceum has learned from its mistakes after falling to Marinerong Pilipino, 94-92m back in opening day. "We have adjusted on everything, the calls and the teams we're playing against," the youthful mentor said.

D-League: Zark’s-Lyceum dumps Batangas-EAC by 37 points

Mike Nzeusseu and Jaycee Marcelino kickstarted the blowout as the Jawbreakers took a 48-33 halftime lead and cruised to the easy victory to bounce back from their 92-94 defeat to Marinerong Pilipino back in opening day. For coach Topex Robinson, it was a matter of the Zark's Burger-Lyceum finally understanding the grind in the developmental league, saying, "we have adjusted to everything, from the calls to the teams we're playing with."

To Rappler’s young and courageous journalists

In the wake of the Duterte government's move to silence Rappler, my friend, the academic Vicente Rafael, said in a Facebook post: "Looking at a recent photo of the Rappler staff, it struck me that their faces showed another compelling reason to support the paper: all youthful, the great hope, if one can pardon the clich, of the nation." And they also have courage. One of Rappler's senior reporters, Pia Ranada, proved this just days after the Duterte administration revoked the multimedia news organization's SEC license. On a video that's gone viral, there's the leader who inspired a bloodbath and who openly belittles the importance of human and civil rights berating, cursing, a j...Keep on reading: To Rappler’s young and courageous journalists.....»»

Makati’s nightlife most exciting, but 19 East in Sucat still the best live music spot

  This year, Makati emerged as the most exciting place for a night out---especially its old town center, Poblacion, where rows of new restaurants, bars and clubs draw crowds that spill out on the streets. There is a youthful vibe in this vibrant scene---the average age of both customers and the establishments' owners most probably under 40. The owners themselves tell us that they interact and promote each other's business. A recent story we wrote ("Why Poblacion is the new Malate," Inquirer Lifestyle, Oct. 15, 2017) was apparently not enough to cover everything.

Shoemaker Robert Clergerie finally puts his feet up

Robert Clergerie, the maker of the luxury French shoes worn by Rihanna, Bella Hadid and Madonna, was never one to sit around kicking his heels. When the brand that bears his name almost went bust four years after he had sold up and retired, he dumped his golf clubs and repurchased the company, pumping in two million euros ($2.3 million) of his own money to put it back on its feet. "I was 70, but I was bored stiff," Clergerie recalled. He had toured the Greek islands, taken up gardening and golf, but he was "bored to death, particularly by the golf". "It killed me to see the company go like that. I knew almost all the workers." "The day I returned to the facto...Keep on reading: Shoemaker Robert Clergerie finally puts his feet up.....»»
