Is Kawhi the Best NBA Player Today?

Inquirer Breaking News - Sat, 06/01/2019 - 07:10
TORONTO (AP) --- The first NBA Finals game outside the U.S. was a party 24 years in the making. Then Pascal Siakam and the Raptors really gave Toronto something to celebrate. Siakam scored a playoff career-high 32 points and the Raptors made a smashing NBA Finals debut, beating the Golden State Warriors 118-109 on Thursday night. The Raptors hardly looked like newcomers to the NBA's biggest stage, controlling the action most of the way against a Golden State team beginning its fifth straight NBA Finals appearance.   "I think we did a pretty good job at home," Kawhi said. "The fans are amazing, man. I just want to say that. From coming out for warmup to the end of ...

Extra Virgin: 15th Virgin Labfest widens audience beyond Manila

Inquirer Breaking News - Sat, 06/01/2019 - 07:10
  The 15th Virgin Labfest (VLF), which received a record 207 submissions, marks a milestone in the history of this festival of one-act plays. Under the theme "Titibuk-Tibok," this year's VLF, which will run in various venues of the Cultural Center of the Philippines June 19-July 7, is expanding its slate of activities and finally widening its audience beyond Manila. The most significant new initiative to be launched alongside this year's festival is an expansion to Cagayan de Oro, cheekily named Extra Virgin Labfest (EVLF). EVLF director Hobart Savior initially conceived of a separate Mindanao-based festival with playwrights Rody Vera and Layeta Bucoy, before decidin...

‘Kundiman Party’: Keep fighting the good fight, no matter the odds

Inquirer Breaking News - Sat, 06/01/2019 - 07:05
  Eleven o'clock numbers (the theater term for a show-stopping song) apply only to musical theater, but the penultimate scene in Floy Quintos' "The Kundiman Party" now feels like one. In that scene, the dishonorable senator Juancho Valderrama finally comes face-to-face with his estranged son, Bobby, who has taken the opposite path as a voice of the resistance movement. That scene was already dramatically satisfying during the play's premiere at the University of the Philippines-Diliman last year, with Kalil Almonte as Bobby going against an appropriately slimy Teroy Guzman---the rebel standing up to the ruler. This time, Nonie Buencamino plays the senator, and Boo Ga...

America's cult of guns

CNN Top Stories - Sat, 06/01/2019 - 07:00
Guns are a religion now. And too many of our fellow citizens -- including evangelical Christians, of all people -- will continue to heedlessly worship at this altar, despite the dead children, the dead teachers, the dead concertgoers and the innocent bystanders who must sacrifice their lives for others' overriding faith in their weapons.

On the PDI price increase: Value beyond printed page

Inquirer Breaking News - Sat, 06/01/2019 - 05:42
Consumers have experienced a general increase in the costs of goods and services for the past years. The Philippine Daily Inquirer has tried to hold off an increase in its cover price; its last increase was 15 years ago even while its competitors had earlier raised their respective prices.   But the increase in world newsprint prices and in transportation costs and the depreciation of the peso have affected the general cost of production. Starting June 1, therefore, the Inquirer will raise its cover price from P18 to P20 for the Monday to Saturday issues. The Sunday issue will remain at P20.   Part of the proceeds of the increase in the newspaper's cover price will ...

Passing first test

Inquirer Breaking News - Sat, 06/01/2019 - 05:40
  Two teams made their tournament debuts in the PBA Commissioner's Cup on Friday night, but only one ended up satisfied with the result. Phoenix Pulse coach Louie Alas, in fact, seemed pretty amazed at how his team held off a young and pesky Blackwater side, 103-98, at Mall of Asia Arena. "I was looking at the stat sheet and we nearly did everything we had hoped to do," Alas said. The Fuel Masters were the No. 1 team at the end of the elimination round of the Philippine Cup but lost in a semifinal duel with eventual champion San Miguel Beer. The No. 2 team at the end of the same round then was Rain or Shine, which lost to eventual all-Filipino runner-up Magnolia a...
