Juniors MVP completes RP selection in FIBA U-18

AFTER leading UST to a runner-up finish in the UAAP juniors’ basketball tournament, reigning MVP Kevin Ferrer has been tapped to join the Philippine campaign in the 21st Federation Internationale de Basket-ball (FIBA) Asia U-18 championship tournament in Sana’a, Yemen.

Ferrer and his team left the country on September 20, two days before the Philippine squad’s opening game against Saudi Arabia. He was invited to the team shortly after winning the Rookie of the Year honors last season.

Also in the selection are Ateneo standouts Kiefer Ravena and Von Pessumal, ex-Cub Kyle Neypes, and Jeron Teng, younger brother of UST’s Jeric Teng.

UST’s coaching staff was proud that a home-grown talent was invited to the national team.

Salinggawi dines with the Rector

RECTOR Fr. Rolando de la Rosa, O.P. honored the Salinggawi Dance Troupe and the Yellow Jackets with a testimonial dinner at the Central Seminary Gym last September 27 for their third-place finish in this year’s UAAP cheerdance competition.

“We are so proud (of you). All the priests enjoy watching you. Every time you perform, you give us a very beautiful memory to look back on,” Rector said in his speech.

As a reward, the dance troupe was placed under the Rector’s office so it could be “really taken care of,” especially on the occasion of the school’s quadricentennial, according to De la Rosa.

The Rector said he was considering more practice hours for Salinggawi members to better prepare them for competitions.

Bekimon: Ebolusyon ng salitang bakla

NOONG una “jejemon,” ngayon “bekimon.”

Tunay ngang daynamiko ang wikang Filipino dahil sa pagsibol ng isa na namang panibagong terminong ginagamit na ng marami—ang “bekimon.”

Unang sumikat sa Internet, itinuturing ang mga “bekimon” na bagong mukha ng salitang bakla sa Pilipinas. Mula ito sa salitang kolokyal na “beki” na nangangahulugang bakla, habang ang salitang “mon” ay nanggaling sa mga nausong “jejemon”, o mga taong mahilig gumamit ng mga special characters sa pagtetext.
