The streets of Metro Manila were eerily quiet like they would be at midnight. Millions of Filipinos were glued to their radio sets while the luckier ones watched the boxing fight live via pay-per-view cable TV in restaurants, stadiums, movie houses, and yes, public plazas where even typhoon victims in the Visayas region gathered to watch.

Filipino boxing champion Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao entered the Cotai Arena of the Venetian Casino in Macau under the most extraordinary circumstances. Thousands of typhoon victims in Eastern Visayas knew about his fight, and were banking on his victory. Homeless, penniless, and in various stages of mourning, these victims see hope in boxing gloves worn by someone familiar, someone who made it to the top despite all adversities. The fight between Pacquiao and Mexican boxer Brandon Rios was more than just a boxing match. It was a metaphor for their lives.

By: MINDA TEVES

A group of 21 leaders coming from Padova, Turin and Milan gathered at Piazzale Susa, 1-Milan Italy last February 17,2013 to attend the ―TEAM BUILDING SEMINAR facilitated by Ms. Carol Medel-Anonuevo from Hamburg Germany the Deputy Director of UNESCO of Life-Long Learning.

The seminar was opened with a prayer and the Philippine National Anthem. The speaker distributed pieces of papers and asked all the participants to write down their expectations and different motivations why they have chosen to waste their precious time attending the seminar instead of staying at home and relax. Everybody was excited especially when the answers were read one by one. They even tried to guess who‘s written certain ideas. Well, there was one thing that came out as common to all that is ―CURIOSITY . We were actually curious on how to acquire knowledge to become an effective leader and at the same time bring out the common interest of everyone in the community and organize profitable and developmental activities.

Some said she was going 25-plus mph easy. I thought it could have been faster, the image a blur as the demon jammer whizzed by. Didn’t get her name but who does. Everyone of them are aliases, names like Smarty Pants, Haught Wheels, Windy City Rollers and so on and so forth.

Basically it’s badass girls in hot pants and colored shirts uniform plowing through other badass girls of a different uniform. A fastpaced action initiated by jammers jamming to score points while the blockers block. How simple can that be? Contact sports? Go see football and the likes. What we have here is collision sports. One can just imagine the sores and aches and occasional bruises. Most amazing, they’re all chicks!
