Reenacted budget in 2019 to push up to 400K Filipinos into poverty

Reenacting the 2018 national budget for next year will not only slow down economic growth as government spending gets reduced, but also lead to job losses and push hundreds of thousands to poverty. Department of Budget and Management (DBM) estimates showed that expenditures in 2019 will be cut by a total of P219.8 billion if a reenacted budget would be spent instead of passing the proposed P3.757-trillion cash-based appropriations. In particular, disbursements for personnel services will be reduced by P54.4 billion; maintenance and other operating expenses (MOOE) by P14.3 billion; subsidies by P28.3 billion; and capital outlays by P122.9 billion. Based on estimates of the st...Keep on reading: Reenacted budget in 2019 to push up to 400K Filipinos into poverty.....»»

ONE Championship: Jomary Torres is eager to pick herself up after bowing to Mei Yamaguchi

Experiencing two defeats in a row is not the ideal way that a mixed martial artist would want to end a year, but that is exactly how Jomary "The Zamboanginian Fighter" Torres is wrapping up her 2018.   Torres started the year with a bang, scoring a 40-second knockout victory over Team Lakay's April Osenio at ONE: GLOBAL SUPERHEROES in Manila, Philippines last January.   She then made a trip back to the cage eight months later against Priscilla Hertati Lumban Gaol at ONE: CONQUEST OF HEROES in Jakarta, Indonesia.   Expectations were high for Torres, but the Filipina was outplayed at every turn by Lumban Gaol, yielding to the Indonesian hometown hero by unanimous decision.   With the goal to redeem herself and conclude the year on a triumphant note after suffering her first career loss in the sport, she took the challenge of facing former ONE World Title challenger Mei "V.V" Yamaguchi of Japan at ONE: DESTINY OF CHAMPIONS at the Axiata Arena in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia last Friday, 7 December.   Yamaguchi showcased her edge in experience and skills as she outworked Torres in both the striking and ground game departments over the course of three rounds, cruising to a clear-cut unanimous decision.   Although Torres did not get what she wished for, the 22-year-old native of Zamboanga City finds comfort with the thought of going the distance against a battle-tested martial artist such as Yamaguchi.   "To share the stage with a world-class athlete like Yamaguchi is a great learning experience. I see this as something that would benefit my career in the future," she stated.   "This is definitely a great learning experience for me. I gave everything I have, but it didn't quite work out. I knew I was a big underdog, but I stepped up and went all-out against her.”   She concedes that her Japanese opponent was simply the better woman, suggesting that her cage meeting with Yamaguchi will be supplemental to her journey as an athlete in mixed martial arts.   "It's a huge help to have been able to compete against someone of Mei Yamaguchi's caliber. She's a former ONE World Title contender,” she said. "She was the better lady that night, but that's part of being an athlete. I will learn and improve.”   Her first three impressive bouts in the world's largest martial arts organization convinced observers that Torres is a special competitor in the women’s atomweight division of ONE Championship.   Despite the string of setbacks, Torres plans on living up to her potential, believing that better days are definitely ahead in her young career.   "I have a great career ahead of me. The loss will only make me a better competitor moving forward," she vowed......»»

ABL: ABL: Alab s new recruit Brandon Rosser plays like Jay Washington, says Alapag

Brand new Alab recruit Brandon Rosser announced his arrival in the ASEAN Basketball League with a one-handed buzzer-beating dunk Sunday at the Sta. Rosa Multipurpose Sports Complex. The 24-year-old athlete emphatically cleaned up a Renaldo Balkman shot that was supposed to clank off just seconds before the opening frame ended versus CLS Knights Indonesia. Brandon Rosser ends the quarter with a BANG 😳 #ABL9 pic.twitter.com/d9pw5AAxy7 — ABS-CBN Sports (@abscbnsports) December 9, 2018 "I think that was the first tip dunk I've ever had in a game and I think my first buzzer beater as well so getting it both for the first time is pretty cool," he said while narrating his first ABL conversion after Alab's victory, 94-67, over the Knights. The Fil-Am Rosser, who is the younger brother of San Miguel's Matt Ganuelas-Rosser in the PBA, is one of the several new faces of the young Alab Pilipinas roster. With a brother who already knows the ropes around Filipino basketball, he shared the wisdom that was given to him leading up to his Alab debut. "He said that the Filipino fans really appreciate hardworkers so I just come in and be myself and play for the fans and play for the country," said the younger Rosser whose brothers were present in the game. And hard work was exactly what he did in his first game where he finished with six points, two rebounds, two assists. He held his own while defending against massive opponents from the CLS Knights. Alab Head coach Jimmy Alapag gave high praise for the 6-foot-7 forward, as he likened Rosser to former San Miguel Beermen player and current Rain or Shine Elasto Painter, Jay Washington. "Brandon just gives us so much more versatility. He’s a guy who’s 6-foot-7 but he can shoot it, he can put it on the floor. He reminds me a lot of a young Jay Washington. Somebody who gets to the rim, somebody who can knock down perimeter shots. He’s a tough kid," said the sophomore Alab mentor. When asked to comment on the comparison to a PBA champion, Rosser expressed his excitement to reinforce it. "I've heard that comparison before. My brother actually played with Jay Wash too, so I've seen his game. Coach Jimmy, he's always looking out, anything he says, I listen. If he can say that, I'll just keep on building on that and I'll be game," Rosser said. Rosser started his collegiate career in Central Arizona College and finished at the University of California, Riverside. Playing in the ABL for Alab is his first professional basketball stint. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @the9cruz.....»»
