Angry Duterte against freeing Sanchez, says Bong Go
President Duterte is strongly against the release of convicted rapist and murderer Antonio Sanchez, a former mayor of Calauan, Laguna province, who was sentenced to serve a total of nine 40-year prison terms in two separate cases, according to Sen. Christopher Lawrence "Bong" Go. "He's not in favor. As a lawyer, [the President] believes [Sanchez] is not qualified [to be granted with good conduct time allowance]," Go told the Inquirer in a Viber message on Friday. He was referring to Republic Act No. 10592 passed in 2013 which credits good behavior to shave time off a convict's prison term. Asked if Mr. Duterte had relayed this to Justice Secretary Menardo Guevarra and Bureau...Keep on reading: Angry Duterte against freeing Sanchez, says Bong Go

LUCENA CITY---This year's Niyogyugan Festival in Quezon province showcases a colorful but fast-fading native tradition---the lambanog (coconut gin) drinking ritual that has been described as a spirited welcome to visiting friends and guests alike.

Palace: Harder now for STL operators to cheat gov’t
Malacaang on Friday said the "onerous" conditions it had set for the resumption of Small Town Lottery (STL) operations should make it difficult for operators to cheat the government of its rightful earnings. "From my point of view, the conditions are very onerous on the part of the STL [operators]. And they will have a difficult time coming up with an excuse not to remit or to swindle the government with respect to their shares," presidential spokesperson Salvador Panelo said. "In fact, the conditions will prevent the corruption there. Because [they] have to sign [a written undertaking] and there is a forfeiture.

PCSO scored over Malasakit Centers
An opposition lawmaker on Friday called out the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) for using charity funds to set up and maintain Malasakit Centers amid allegations that these were being used as tools for political propaganda. During a House budget hearing, Albay Rep. Edcel Lagman questioned the supposed lack of legal basis for the agency to provide funds for the Malasakit Centers. "There is need for you to go on the ground to investigate and validate, because there are a lot of complaints, that more are getting sick because of these Malasakit Centers; that it is more of a partisan tool rather than a medical outlet," he said.

IN THE KNOW: Why only 40-year imprisonment?
Nine reclusion perpetua sentences, each equivalent to 40 years, to the layman would mean 360 years in prison for a convict receiving that penalty. That is not so, according to law. Article 70 of the Revised Penal Code states that if multiple penalties could not be served simultaneously, the imposed penalties may be executed successively, following the order of their severity. However, it limited the maximum duration of a convict's sentence. Under the "three-fold rule," of Article 70, a convict can be punished only up to three times the most severe penalty imposed, and such maximum period shall not exceed 40 years. "No other penalty to which he may be liable shall be inflicted af...Keep on reading: IN THE KNOW: Why only 40-year imprisonment?

Australia echoes US, Vietnam concerns over China sea actions
Australia on Friday urged nations in Asia to stand up for their "independence and sovereignty," following renewed concerns aired by allies Vietnam and the United States over China's actions in the disputed South China Sea. The comments by Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison, who was in Hanoi, Vietnam, for a three-day visit, came after Washington slammed Beijing for its "escalation" in the waterway, a key global shipping route where China is accused of deploying warships, arming outposts and ramming fishing vessels.

‘Dancing Lessons’: Rising above rom-com conventions
This year has seen a slew of productions with imaginatively offbeat use of theatrical idioms to enable audience empathy with painful faces of the human condition. "Every Brilliant Thing" employed audience interactive games to illuminate suicidal tendencies; "Stop Kiss" split time frames to bring home the toxicity of gender intolerance; and "Dani Girl" turned child cancer into an uplifting musical. Now, Twin Bill Theater, on its return after a two-year hiatus, uses the structure and style of the romantic comedy---an oft-used, perhaps even overused, trope of film and theater---to broaden an understanding of the autism spectrum.

‘Dolorosa’: Where is the sense of unrest? The performers are the bright side
Tanghalang Ateneo's "Dolorosa" has ideas worth thinking about. Directed by Jenny Jamora and written by Peter Zaragoza Mayshle (who has extended his original, one-act staged reading to a three-hour affair), the play is a multigenerational narrative about Filipino women under oppressive rule, and in the shadow of the image of the Virgin Mary as Mater Dolorosa. This intersection of religion, suffering and feminine identity is undoubtedly fertile ground for drama. Unfortunately, "Dolorosa" never seems convinced of its own ideas. Its scattered assemblage of scenes is more confused than adventurous, more melodramatic than heartfelt. It's clear what the production aspires to be: a trip...Keep on reading: ‘Dolorosa’: Where is the sense of unrest? The performers are the bright side

Food waste seen as carrier of unidentified swine disease
The cause of the unidentified swine disease in Rizal that saw the deaths of backyard hogs in the area were believed to have been caused by food waste. According to an Inquirer source, initial investigations made by the Department of Agriculture (DA) showed that the virus most likely came from leftovers that were contaminated and were used by backyard raisers as swill food. Swill feeding is a widespread practice among backyard hog raisers because of its affordability. Last year, the DA banned the use of catering and restaurant leftovers from airports to ensure that the African swine fever (ASF) virus would not enter the country, but security protocols might have been lax.
