After series of heartbreaks, hard work yields medal for PH men’s volleyball
MANILA, Philippines---After a long time, the Philippines is finally back on the men's volleyball podium of the Southeast Asian Games. The Philippines captured the silver medal in the 2019 Games after losing to Indonesia in straight sets, 25-21, 27-25, 25-17, but that runner-up finish still has a glimmer that shines like gold. Slowly building up a program, the Philippines tried to make an impact in the 2015 and 2017 SEA Games but the country still fell into despair in the two regional meets. "Maybe we still lacked what it takes in 2015 and 2017 but this year whoever you put in you're confident that they will deliver," said De Guzman in Filipino Tuesday at Philsports Arena. ...Keep on reading: After series of heartbreaks, hard work yields medal for PH men’s volleyball

Colossal cameras to feature on next year’s smartphones

At the same time, they also enable users to print pictures in very large formats. However, let's not forget that a 200-megapixel camera will not necessarily take pictures that have 200 million pixels, at least not all of the time.
