Boxing association nets quality fighters, a Sorsoganon, included

Manila Standard Today
SUBIC—With one of its area tournaments about to conclude, the Amateur Boxing Association of the Philippines has identified young, but quality fighters, who may soon be part of the national youth squad.
Philippine Team coaching staff member Elmer Pamisa saw at least five boxers currently competing in the PLDT-ABAP Luzon Area Boxing Tournament here as potential youth members.
“’Yung kailangan natin ngayon, hindi lang basta pumupuntos. Importante na ‘yung may laman ang suntok, kasi ganu’n na ngayon ang scoring sa international at ‘yun ang nakita ko ngayon sa mga bata,” said Pamisa, who is also a former national team boxer.
Among those spotted by Pamisa were pinweights John Mark Pajareto and Fernando Tacuyan, and the flyweight pair of Neco Magliquian and Michael Dasmarinas.
Pajareto and Tacuyan entered the finals by decisioning Jerson Magliquian and Dexter Dimaculangan, respectively.
Dasmarinas, meanwhile, also made it into the finals by scoring a Referee Stopped Contest in the third round over Magliquian. The Bicolano Dasmarinas battles Romblon B’s Reymark De Capiz for the gold.
The finals of every division of this Clusivol-backed tournament were set Thursday night at the Subic Gym.
Other finalists were La Union B’s Jovani Dulce, who won over La Union A’s Joseph Casil in the cotton weight division; Sorsogon’s Norman Estradura is the other cotton weight finalists after winning over Jonji Maritana; and Nueva Ecija’s Ariel Tibayan meets La Union’s Jerusalem Galvez, who both scored RSC wins over Sorsogon’s Jason Hilia and Zambales’ Elmon Carino in their respective mosquito weight assignments.
Olongapo’s Carlo John Espartero and La Union’s Alvin Jay Dulce face off for the paper weight gold as they both decisioned Sorsogon’s Jomaric Deliarte and Joshua Sapaden, respectively; La Union’s Ricardo Dulce won on points over Olongapo’s Melchor Perez and will next face fellow pinweight Noel Pecking of Baguio, a second-round RSC winner over Nueva Ecija’s Alvin Bolante.
In an all-Olongapo featherweight finals match, Reggie Roque a second-round RSC winner over Zambales’ Juan Gabriel Fabay, tangles with Reymark Sanchez, a third-round RSC victor over Churchie Falcunaya.
Meantime, ABAP Executive Director Ed Picson exuded enthusiasm in seeing their drive for talent discovery to be heading in the right direction, especially with PLDT providing needed support.

DepEd, nagdeklara ng giyera kontra ‘Jejemon’

By RMN News

MARIING tinututulan ng Dept. of Education ang pag-iba sa spelling ng mga salita na ginagamit sa pag-text o ang napapa-usong ‘Jejemon’ lingo.

Ayon kay DepEd Sec. Mona Valisno, hindi tama na ibahin ang pagbabaybay ng mga salita dahil hindi maganda sa paningin at lumilikha lamag ng kalituhan sa mga nagbabasa.

Kaugnay nito, hinimok niya ang mga gruo na ituro sa mga estudyante ang tamang pag-babaybay ng mga salita.

Hinimok din ni Valisno ang publiko na isulat ang buong salita sa pag-text upang mas matuto sa spelling at hwag gayahin ang mga jejemon

Tech-voc graduates up – DepEd

By INA HERNANDO-MALIPOT

The strengthened technical vocational (tech-voc) curriculum of the Department of Education (DepEd) continued to produce a new generation of high-skilled workforce as it generated a total of 1,751 holders of competency certificate after they passed various skills test administered by a national certifying body.

Education Secretary Mona Valisno said that with the kind of training and preparation the DepEd has been providing its students, it is anticipating an increase in the number of tech-voc graduates who will pass the highly-competitive skills test of Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA).

DepEd, under the Strengthened Technical-Vocational Education Program (STVEP), supervises a total of 282 tech-voc high schools where students can take specialization in automotive, computer hardware service, cosmetology, furniture, and cabinet-making, garments, air conditioning and refrigeration, food production, crop production, food processing, fish culture, and fish capture, among others.

“These fields of specialization are taken alongside academic subjects, thus producing graduates who are ready for both the world of work and higher education whichever they choose,” she said.

Valisno added that there are more than 4,000 tech-voc graduating students nationwide who have yet to complete this school year’s TESDA-administered skills assessment
