TNT will attempt to move on the verge of its first PBA title in six years as it shoots for a commanding 3-0 lead in the Philippine Cup finals against Magnolia on Sunday, October 24. It has been a dominant finals stint for the Tropang Giga so far after winning the first two games by an average of 15 points, with star rookie Mikey Williams taking the Hotshots to school. Williams is norming 24.5 points, 9.5 rebounds, 5.5 assists, and 1.5 steals as TNT solidified its bid of capturing the all-Filipino championship it fell short of winning last season. Magnolia, though, has shown that it will not go down without a fight after nearly coming back from a 21-point deficit in Game 2. Battered by 18 points in Game 1, the Hotshots got to within 4 points in the fourth quarter of Game 2 before Williams knocked down key buckets late to propel the Tropang Giga to a 2-0 finals lead.

Mahirap na nga ang buhay ngayon dahil sa pandemya, dumagdag pa ang sobrang taas na presyo ng mga bilihin. Makikita sa Figure 1 na noong Setyembre 2021, pumalo sa 4.8% ang “inflation rate” na sumusukat sa pagtaas ng mga presyo. Mas mababa iyon sa 4.9% noong Agosto, ngunit ’di hamak na mas mataas sa target ng gobyerno na 4% lamang. Sa katunayan, sa lahat ng buwan ng 2021 – maliban noong Hulyo – ay lumagpas tayo sa inflation target na iyon. Mas malaki rin ang tama ng inflation sa mahihirap: 5% ang naramdaman nilang inflation noong Setyembre. Iyon ay dahil sa mas malaking bahagi ng kanilang budget ang napupunta sa pagkain, at nagsitaasan kamakailan ang presyo ng food items katulad ng baboy at isda. Kung hihimayin ang datos (Figure 2), makikitang bukod sa pagkain ay lumalaki rin ang kontribusyon sa inflation ng mga gastusin sa bahay – kuryente, gas, atbp. Pagdating sa mataas na food inflation, karne, isda, at gulay ang dapat sisihin (Figure 3). ... » Learn More about [ANALYSIS] Bakit napakamahal ng mga bilihin? Ano’ng solusyon?
TNT rookie Mikey Williams drew huge praise from Magnolia star Paul Lee and coach Chito Victolero as the Tropang Giga ace continue to torch the Hotshots in the PBA Philippine Cup finals. Williams shrugged off the vaunted Magnolia defense in Game 3 on Sunday, October 24, and set a new PBA record for most three-pointers in a finals game after sinking 10 triples to finish with a career-high 39 points. Although his fiery performance went down the drain as TNT lost 98-106 , Williams' efforts did not go unnoticed, with Lee and Victolero tipping their hats off to the PBA newcomer. "I think we all know it, he's very good. He's NBA-caliber. I think he played in the D League," Victolero said in a mix of Filipino and English. Prior to joining the PBA, Williams saw action in the NBA G League for the Sioux Falls Skyforce and the Canton Charge. "He loves to score. He's able to find a way around the schemes that we employ against him," Victolero added. ... » Learn More about Paul Lee, Chito Victolero in awe of Mikey Williams’ scoring prowess
BANGKOK – Once her parents set up the studio lights in their simple one-room Bangkok home, 18-year-old “Fai” bursts into action. She’s loud and sassy, dancing and laughing as she welcomes her fans to a live broadcast of another make-up tutorial, sponsored by a local brand. “Hello everyone! Welcome back, it’s me Fai doing make-up with my feet — check out my dress, isn’t it beautiful?” Fai gets herself up on her shortened leg, balancing with her full-sized leg, and shimmies her body to the loud R&B music. She has no arms and shows off her bare rounded shoulders by wearing just a crop top. Over the next hour, Fai demonstrates how she uses the sponsor’s products — doing everything with her toes. She puts on green contact lenses, attaches fake eyelashes, brushes on foundation, and carefully applies lipstick and eyeliner. “Today I got 4,000 [viewers], which is very good,” said Fai, who usually goes by her nickname (meaning “cotton”) rather than her Thai name ... » Learn More about Armless Beauty Video Blogger a Online Sensation in Thailand
