It is not a hidden fact that our liver
plays an important role in keeping our body healthy and functioning. But in
order for us to understand how important the liver is, here are the things that
our liver do in order to keep us healthy human beings:
experience in bed doesn’t happen every time you engage in sexual intercourse.
It’s nothing like how the movies portray it, most of the time, married men feel
like they’re both doing it as a routine and not because they want emotional and
physical pleasure. In order to get out of this stigma that as time goes by, sex
becomes more like a routine rather than pleasure—you must do something. Good
sex or an extreme experience vary from one relationship to another but here are
general rules that you can make you have a good time anyway.
Saglit nagpahinga sa paggawa ng pelikula ang isa sa pinaka-busy na aktor ngayon na si Empoy Marquez para isulat ang ilan sa kanyang mga karanasan at kwento at pinagsama-sama niya ito sa kanyang unang libro mula sa ABS-CBN Publishing, ang “Bakit Nakakakiliti Ang Bigote?”
Sunod-sunod ang mga makapigil-hiningang eksena sa hit action serye na “La Luna Sangre” dahil matapos hirangin si Malia (Kathryn Bernardo) bilang bagong Punong Bantay ng La Liga Unida (LLU) ay inilantad na rin ang katauhan ni Jacintha (Angel Locsin) bilang ‘Lady in Red.’
Laking gulat nga ng lahat nang makita si Jacintha bilang isang makapangyarihang bampira at pinatumba ang kampo ni Sandrino (Richard Gutierrez) kabilang si Boris (Ali Khatibi). Inilantad na rin na si Jacintha ang nasa likod ng pamamaril kay Sandrino (Richard Gutierrez) gamit ang balang gawa sa pangil ng lobo, dahilan para muling tumibok ang puso ng Supremo.
Hindi naman paaawat si Malia sa pagyakap ng kanyang kapalaran lalo pa’t mas naipapakita na niya ang kanyang angking lakas at kapangyarihan. Matagumpay niyang napamunuan ang LLU sa pagsakop sa kuta ni Sandrino at napatay niya rin si Omar (Ahron Villena). Hindi naman inaasahan na malaman ni Tristan (Daniel Padilla) na mga lobo at bampira pala ang kakampi niya sa kanyang grupo.
Ano ang susunod na hakbang ni Malia bilang bagong Punong Bantay? Ano ang susunod na gagawin ni Jacintha kontra kay Sandrino? Paano kapag nag-krus ang landas nina Jacintha at Malia? Tuluyan na bang magiging mortal si Sandrino?

From the hardcourt, former UP Lady Maroon Bea Daez has brought her talents to the commentators’ booth, making history as the first-ever female basketball analyst of the UAAP, the most popular collegiate league in the land.
Bea officially went on board last September 17, where she covered the UE vs UP game with seasoned sports anchor Mico Halili. A former “Upfront at the UAAP” host, Bea isn’t a new face to UAAP fans, but her basketball know-how still impressed viewers who immediately tweeted their approval of ABS-CBN Sports’ choice for its newest basketball analyst.
One tweet from user @Ralphierce read, “Great to hear a woman break barriers & call a men’s basketball game in the Philippines.” Another user @austintourist said, “I honestly think @beadaez could go down as one of the best commentators ever. Potential is evident.”
For those who don’t know, Bea is a former Philippine National Team player and was an important cog in the UP Lady Fighting Maroons women’s basketball team. In her last playing season, she even led them to four straight wins despite wearing a face mask due to an injury. Her love affair with basketball, however, began a long, long time ago.
Bea’s first basketball playmates were her brothers (c/o of Bea Daez’ Instagram)
At age five, a young Bea Daez picked up a basketball at home, bounced it once, twice, and never looked back. “I grew up with seven brothers. So as a kid, I would play basketball with all of them. I wouldn’t care if I was the only girl. Basketball runs in both sides of my family so I would always watch basketball and I guess it just grew into me. I started playing since I was Grade 1 and never stopped since,” she shared. As she grew up, Bea suited up for Assumption College, all the while dreaming to be a UAAP Courtside Reporter when she goes to college, not knowing that the basketball gods had something different in store for her.
Looking back on her first day as an analyst, Bea shared that she had the usual jitters anyone would have in her first day on the job. She was scared of running out of things to say or not being able to analyze the plays as well as she would’ve wanted. But through the support of colleagues turned mentors like Halili and her own #MambaMentality, she is slowly easing up to her new job.
“I try my best to watch all the games, regardless if I have a coverage,” she shared. “I always re-watch the last game of both teams playing. I would check their stats after the game, read up on all the articles about their previous game. I would then just try to compose some talk points that would stand out from the previous games and then think of them going against each other like keys to winning and the like,” she said.

Being the first-ever female analyst for UAAP basketball, Bea had immense pressure put on her shoulders, saying, “I want to make a good impression and set the standard high for all other aspiring female basketball analysts. For myself, I also wanted to show others that girls know their stuff about basketball despite it being a men-dominated sport. I always thought that if it could be done in the NBA, then why can’t it be done in the UAAP?”
Wearing her analyst hat, Bea shared her thoughts on the current pace of the UAAP game, which she says has gone notches faster, making her keep her sentences concise to get her point across. “Sometimes, I’m thinking of a basketball term but it doesn’t come out as fast as I’d want to. This is why I always try to watch even more basketball than I used to. After my day job, I would always read up during the night on articles about the teams. I would watch Dorris Burke to help me become less scared! Watch more basketball in general so I could widen my basketball jargon and vocabulary,” she shared.
When asked about the evolution of the game, Bea did not miss a beat, saying UAAP basketball has caught up with the NBA’s position-less basketball and emphasis on open three point shots.
“I think that’s evident with all the high-scoring games this season. We see games going up to 100 points, which we don’t see often given that we only play 40 minutes in the UAAP. At the same time, we see teams really focusing on their outside shot. Case in point would be Ateneo, the league’s best 3 point shooting team. In their previous game vs Adamson, we saw even (Isaac) Go and (Chibueze) Ikeh showing their range,” she said
She shared that she appreciates gaining a new perspective of the game watching from the sidelines. As an analyst, Bea has been surprised with the recent stats movement in the UAAP, which has delved into the more scientific aspect of the game compared to during her playing days.
“I think this just lifts the level of competition in basketball even more, given that each team can address almost all aspects of the game, with statistics to back it up. It gives more opportunities for improvement for all the teams, given that they can look at all the details of their games,” she says.
Still, a baller will remain a baller forever, and Bea said she is not yet ready to hang up those sneakers yet. She hopes to play competitively again and live the day when women’s basketball get the attention it deserves in the country as a spectator sport.
“That’s what I hope and pray for. There is so much talent in women’s basketball and it would be great for everyone to notice that,” she said, sharing her desire to play for the flag again next year.
Bea, who also happens to be a certified public accountant, has defied odds all her life as a girl who is in love with basketball in a patriarchal society. Now that she has entered the commentators’ booth and making good of the opportunity given to her, she hopes to encourage others to pursue their own passion and make their mark, even when other people think they can’t do it.
“I’ve always told others that ‘girls can play ball too!’ So I guess it would be the same in terms of being an analyst,” she said.

Weekend coverage starts at 1:30 pm with “Upfront at the UAAP” firing festivities off on S+A and S+A HD.

The team of Anne Curtis, Ryan Bang, and Nadine Lustre spread good vibes while inviting madlang people to join their “love parade” in a highly synchronized and colorful performance captured live in one continuous shot.
Their performance, conceptualized for It’s Showtime’s annual “Magpasikat Week,” was also accompanied by an all-original song “Join the Love Parade” that featured original rap parts by Hashtag Jimboy Martin and Ryan.
“Pagkakaisa, pagmamahalan, ‘wag kang magdrama. Problema lang ‘yan, malalampasan. Basta ba ikaw ang maniwala, hanggang sa ikaw ay magtiwala sa sarili mo na kayang kaya. Tandaan mo bro, may pag-asa,” rapped Jimboy.
Anne said love, unity, and happiness was the message of their performance, which also marked the first time she and Nadine showcased on television their roller skating skills.
After their performance, Anne, who has been named a “Magpasikat Week” champion thrice, said that their performance was dedicated to Ryan, who has never won or placed in the annual competition.
She shared that they also made Ryan the star of the show. Ryan rapped an original material in Korean and also conquered his fear of heights by taking off into the air using balloons at the end of their performance.
“This was 100% good vibes. It’s music video worthy,” commented hurado Janno Gibbs.

According to the
World Health Organization, sexual health
is a state of physical, mental and social well-being in relation to sexuality.
It requires a positive and respectful approach to sexuality and sexual
relationships, as well as the possibility of having pleasurable and safe sexual
experiences, free of coercion, discrimination and violence. Which basically
means that sexual health is an essential part in relationships and in being
human as it affects the person’s well-being and over-all health. If in a
relationship, sexual health does not exist, that relationship between a wife
and a husband will experience some rocky roads.
