‘It’s not my shame’: Why Filipino women are calling out sexual misconduct on social media MOST READ In a report from local MMA website Dojo Drifter, the Baguio native and self-taught painter described his amazing piece.“I did that portrayal of war and love, inspired by the ‘Beauty and the Beast’ [movie], as I admire the story and the characters, especially of Emma Watson as Belle,” he told the news outlet. “I think she has that character that even if she’s big star, she’s still humble, and her involvement [in the] UN makes me look up to her. That made me do that painting. Also my self-portrait symbolizes war and culture, because Igorots are known to be warriors,” he added. It took him roughly three weeks to finish the piece, the report said.Banario, whose brothers Honorio and Dario also fight professionally, holds a 4-1 mixed martial arts record.ADVERTISEMENT Griffin, Paul help Clippers hand Suns 10th straight loss Wildlife rescuers asked to turn over animals to DENR Prince Harry: ‘No other option’ but to cut royal ties LATEST STORIES Taal Volcano evacuees warned against going home Filipinos turn Taal Volcano ash, plastic trash into bricks PLAY LIST 01:40Filipinos turn Taal Volcano ash, plastic trash into bricks01:32Taal Volcano watch: Island fissures steaming, lake water receding02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite ‘1917’ takes top honor at the Producers Guild Awards Palace: Crisis over ABC-CBN franchise unlikely The bantamweight fighter, who last fought in the Pacific Extreme Combat (PXC) in 2015, shared a couple of photos on his Instagram account recently, showcasing his painting inspired by the British actress.

We continue to play a vocal role with the JCF and the National Sports Council by extension as their Credit Union.” Sagicor National Champs gets underway today Over 1200 students from all 14 parishes across the island put their athletic talent on show today, as day one of two of the JTA/Sagicor National Athletic Championships starts today at the National Stadium.

Dear Editor,Some of us are born in this country, we grow and live therein, and have never heard of the Child Care and Protection Agency (CCPA). That is because our parents gave us stability and safety in our homes, and teachers provided support through the school system.I am one such individual, and I remain eternally grateful to my parents and grandparents for exemplifying what stability in family life looks and feels like.However, I recently had cause to interact with this Agency on behalf of a single parent family (father in care of his children) in need of support, and I am in shock to see the level of incapacity at the Agency.Functional literacy is a problem in Guyana; so basic reading, report writing, comprehension, listening and organising skills are in short supply at this Agency. Forget any expectation of common sense, and please don’t even think about such maturity as impartiality, objectivity, truth, fairness and wisdom. Visit any Police station and you find the same problem.If a citizen wants to access intelligence in this society, that citizen is forced to go to the Court System, where they will find professionals with a higher level education and greater capacity for problem-solving.The insight that I gained from my recent interaction with the Guyana Police Force and the Child Care and Protection Agency, which I wish to share with the general public, is the shocking absence and complete disregard and lack of support for the mental health of males in our society.Our agencies are experts at persecuting males; morning, noon and night they know how to do this. They breathe and sleep persecution. Is there one existing agency where men are even heard? They first need to be heard and understood, before they can be supported.This deafness to supporting — rather than persecuting — poor male members of our society is a policy gap that screams across the nation, and it pushes men into a corner to find solace in drowning sorrows.How many men and children in our society deal with verbal and psychological abuse from mothers and female spouses on a daily basis? Yet such women find ready comfort and a sympathetic ear with the gullible authorities. Why is female persecution of slander, lies and threats against men not an issue of concern to any of our agencies? Why are females not given the help that they also need to learn to communicate more effectively?For the creation of a just society, we must engage in systems thinking, do deeper analysis, and provide the mental health support needed by ALL members of our society.Are our agencies aware that people in this country are hungry, with a day-to-day struggle to find food for their children? From their regular, salaried positions and air-conditioned offices (with visitors often left to wait in the sun and rain), are Government officials capable of understanding the support needed by poor families?How do we ease the desperation in society?From my experience with the Child Care and Protection Agency, I have come to realise that there exists a lack of understanding of the living conditions of the poor, and the support being provided to poor families struggling to raise children is way short of inadequate.With a paucity of analytical skills, the right problems will not be solved, because they are not being diagnosed.There are, in this nation, many single-parent families in which men, fathers, are the single-parent struggling to raise their children. Male single-parent families need support as much as families with mothers as the single-parent. The psychological mindset at our agencies, however, is that fathers must work, and mothers must be supported. Mothers can be abusive, drunkards, liars, prostitutes, and guilty of child neglect; frequenting bars with their girl children, who are often prostituted, raped, and made to become mere teenage pregnancy statistics. However, they are mothers, and an agency incapable of proper investigation but is biased against fatherhood cannot act in the interest of fathers and their children.We don’t only celebrate Mother’s Day in this country and around the world; we also observe Father’s Day. As a nation, and part of the Western World now waking up to mental health issues, I urge our agencies and policy makers to remember that men are people too, and that the hard-working, stressed-out fathers are as much in need of support as the destitute mothers.On a recent visit to the Office of the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Social Protection, my attention was drawn to an apparently humble notice inviting members of staff to ‘Emotional Intelligence’ training. My heart skipped a beat as I saw the silver lining. If there is a single policy initiative that can have resounding impact on our mental evolution and our nation’s human development and capacity building efforts, it is the development of our collective emotional awareness.As they say in Trinidad, we can all ‘make nice’; first with ourselves, and then with others.Men and women in Guyana cannot improve their coping strategies for dealing with life’s frustrations without a deeper understanding of their emotions. The lot of the emotionally hijacked – the torrent of emotional abuse, impoverished communication skills, and the murders and suicides – would improve only with knowledge of how to manage the many frustrations of life. As a Rastafarian recently said to me, “We all must learn to bring the ‘I’ over the ‘E’.I wish to encourage our policy makers to roll out a massive Emotional Intelligence Awareness Campaign across the length and breadth of this nation. It must be geared to supporting the needs of ALL in our society.Sincerely,Concerned Citizen
The Ivory Coast forward made the announcement as he received the 2015 Football Writers’ Association Tribute Award at a dinner at London’s Savoy Hotel on Sunday.Drogba returned to Stamford Bridge in pre-season, following spells in China and Turkey with Shanghai and Galatasaray respectively, but there has been no word yet from Chelsea chiefs as to what will happen to the forward when his current contract with the west London club expires.But the 36-year-old made it clear Sunday he wanted to stay at Chelsea, even if he was no longer involved in a playing capacity beyond the end of the current campaign.“When you have achieved so much and won so many trophies like we have done in the past 10 years, that creates something special,” said Drogba, who was powerless to prevent Chelsea losing 4-2 at home to third-tier Bradford City on Saturday in one of the greatest FA Cup upsets of them all.“I hope, and the club makes me believe, I am part of this big family, so we are going to find the best thing for both of us to promote the club in the best way.”Drogba added: “When I left this club (the first time), I was saying that I had done everything I wanted to do, but I think now that I did not do everything, I think there is more to do.“I love this club and would love to be part of this club for the future, with the new players.”– Mourinho praise –Premier League leaders Chelsea have a chance to atone for their Bradford defeat when they face Liverpool at Stamford Bridge in the second leg of their League Cup semi-final on Tuesday, with the tie all square at 1-1.“Everybody was disappointed and of course we are not proud of what happened (against Bradford), but the good thing is in two days we have another game, so we have to focus on this game and try to play better than we did at the weekend,” said Drogba.Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho, in his first spell with the Blues, brought Drogba to the club from Marseille in a £24 million ($40.7 million, 30.3 million euros) transfer in 2004.Drogba went on to score 157 goals for Chelsea over an eight-year period and left the club in 2012 shortly after scoring the winning penalty against Bayern Munich in the Champions League final.In a personal tribute to Drogba in the FWA dinner programme, Mourinho wrote: “Throughout my career, I have always refused to say which is my favourite player or the best person, because so many have given soul and blood to play and to fight with me, but if I have to choose one who represents all the good things you want in a player and a man, I think in this moment I would choose Didier.”Portuguese boss Mourinho added: “I can say that he is a phenomenal person.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000LONDON,January 26 -Didier Drogba said Sunday he wanted to remain a member of the Chelsea “family” beyond the end of the current English season.
Spicy’s Gentleman’s Club is near several industrial businesses. Diamond said, if the judge rules in the city’s favor and upholds the new ordinance, his client could theoretically “move next to a church.” Ashworth said Spicy’s could open on Norwalk Boulevard, which has an adult-business zone. He said the Holiday strip club has operated on Norwalk since the mid-1980s. City officials served two cease and desist orders against Spicy’s, which Kwong ignored, forcing Santa Fe Springs to sue, Ashworth added. The next court date on the lawsuit was set for June 29. firstname.lastname@example.org (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3028 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

But Kwong’s attorney Roger Jon Diamond threw the charge back at city officials, saying the city misled his client. “The issue is not whether \ misrepresented his business, but whether he had to do so to comply with an unconstitutional ordinance,” he said. He questioned whether the city made available enough sites for adult businesses to open. By federal law, cities cannot use zoning laws to unreasonably prohibit adult-oriented businesses from opening within their borders. In December, City Council members approved an ordinance that eliminated distance setback requirements aimed at keeping adult businesses from opening within 500 feet of any churches. Recent court rulings have struck down those distance requirements. The new ordinance opened up 600,000 square feet within the city in which adult-oriented businesses can open, the city’s legal counsel has said. SANTA FE SPRINGS – As a Los Angeles Superior Court judge postponed a hearing this week on the city’s lawsuit against a strip club, city officials continued to insist the business is out of compliance with zoning laws. Paul Ashworth, Santa Fe Springs’ assistant director of planning and development, said the owner of Spicy’s Gentleman’s Club on Slauson Avenue could have picked from among 12 locations in the city where adult businesses are permitted. “The owner is in defiance of our zoning laws by operating an adult oriented business in the zone it is located,” he said, adding that owner Edwin Kwong misled the city last year when he requested a business license and characterized his establishment as a restaurant with “live entertainment.” “He failed to mention the live entertainment would be totally nude dancers,” Ashworth said. “He is operating his business in defiance of the city’s ordinance.”

George) Patton talking. … You have just got to make up your mind whose side you’re on.” The next day I was crossing the English Channel with the 66th Black Panther Infantry Division when one of our ships was hit by a German torpedo and more than 800 lives were lost. I landed in Cherbourg on Christmas Day expecting to get into the Battle of the Bulge, but luckily for our division that did not happen. Unfortunately, there were approximately 80,000 casualties in that one battle among troops who were not as lucky. We are now in the most important war in our history, a war against an evil enemy whose goal is to kill all “infidels.” The time has arrived when the media, politicians and the rest of us must decide whose side we are on. – Bill Zelenka, Granada Hills The harsh stench Re: “Just a myth” (Your Opinions, Dec. 25): Smokers should speak only for themselves when doubting that anyone could detect cigarette smoke a block away. Neither my husband nor I ever was a smoker, and so we still have a highly developed sense of smell and a gag reflex. The harsh stench of cigarette smoke is second only to the odor of a cat’s dirty litter box in its ability to creep under a closed door, travel through hotel duct work into a nonsmoking room, or saturate cloth fibers of drapes or furniture. – Jennifer Rabuchin, Burbank Vote on it Re “Mayor charts LAUSD course” (Dec. 23): The Los Angeles Unified School District needs to continue to move forward to increase student achievement – and probably at a faster pace. I believe that the LAUSD community – not the California Legislature, governor or other state officials – should vote whether or not Mayor Villaraigosa should participate in controlling part of the district. If the voters say yes, then the district voters have spoken. We are all for increasing student achievement. – Jane Krause, Retired LAUSD teacher, Tujunga Isn’t that sweet? Now Sacramento is importing a foreign crook that will do “business” in California. This is Lottomatica, the Italian company cited in Italy for antitrust violation, and Lottomatica bought the U.S.-based GTECH. Our lawmakers didn’t know about the Italian takeover. Lottery Director Joan Borucki and other lottery officials are mum about the Italian takeover. And now – after the fact – a lawmaker wants to introduce changes in the state’s gaming system? Is anyone awake in Sacramento? – Dante F. Rochetti, West Hills A joke, right? I read the movie reviews by your two resident critics, Bob Strauss and Glenn Whipp, and it never fails to amaze me that these two “critics” find a way to love the films I hate and to hate the films I love. The coup de grace was in the Dec. 23 edition. Whipp reviewed a 40-year-old French film by Jean-Luc Godard playing at one theater. He gave it three stars, which indicates to me that it is a good film worth seeing. But, according to Whipp, the film has a “complete lack of narrative focus,” and the main character with the most dialogue is not the prostitute on screen, but Godard himself as a narrator “who whispers Marxist musings ad nauseum throughout the movie.” Is this a joke or what? This final review has convinced me that the Daily News film critics are a total waste of time. – Gary Fullerton, Santa Clarita160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

It seems that every day he is trying to have his hand on everything – taking over the school district and traveling to foreign lands on our money. Every day on the news, he is there in front of the cameras doing unnecessary things. I never saw James Hahn, Richard Riordan or especially Tom Bradley work in this manner as mayor. It would be better if Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa just stayed in his office and did the mayor’s job for the city – or better yet if he got out and repaired the ruts and holes in the streets as he said he would do.
