A long read for the upcoming weekend :) I hope athletes, coaches, sports fans, and advocates will find it worthwhile.
Heartfelt thanks to @gmanews for sharing this story, originally published by @PCIJdotOrg in partnership with @fyt_ph.
Every so often, we come together to rhapsodize over the remarkable achievements of our athletes. Truth is, their real battles are waged in between these brief moments of glory, as Filipino athletes jump through the hoops of a flawed national sports system.
Human caused. Human consequences.
The climate emergency is about people. It is a crisis brought about by humans, and the most vulnerable are bearing the cost. Displacement is one of its most devastating effects.
Developing countries have:
🔹contributed the least to climate change
🔹have the fewest resources to prepare and adapt.
🔹host the vast major of those forced to flee
The climate crisis is a human crisis. We’re calling for urgent support to help aid and protect these communitiesJz

Katulad ng mga batong inaagusan ng maruming tubig sa ilog, hindi natitinag at matibay na hinaharap ng gem hunter na si David ang mga hamon ng buhay.
Gaano nga ba kahirap ang proseso ng pagkuha ng precious stones mula sa mga naglalakihang bato sa ilog?
During difficult times, it’s understandable for sports to take a back seat. We need to eat, stay safe, and keep a roof over our heads. But who would say sports isn't a worthy investment?

Our elite sports program aims to show the rest of the world the best of what Filipinos can do. Although funding has improved in the past two years, the system is still saddled by politics and patronage. Read part 2 of our @PCIJdotOrg special report here:

Some weekend listening for all of you, feat The Beatles, Eraserheads, Yano, Radiohead, Passion Pit, The Flaming Lips, and Maggie Rogers. Music is a huge source of inspiration for me. I had so much fun recording this podcast with the @PumaPodcastPH team!
.@atomaraullo was introduced to journalism at an early age, but did you know that he was once on track to be a scientist? Among other things, music opened his eyes to social issues and the path he was meant to take.

Lalong mahalaga ang 2 at 3 kung nakinabang at pinagtakpan ang “kasalanan” sa mahabang panahon. Bukod pa ang usapin ng kriminal na pananagutan, kung meron man. twitter.com/inquirerdotnet…
Isa sa madalas igiit ng mga supporters, campaigners, at operators ng pamilya Marcos ang kasinungalingang hindi sila napatunayang nagnakaw o nahatulan ng katiwalian sa korte. Mali po ito. Basahin: twitter.com/rapplerdotcom/…
The 2021 Nobel Peace Prize was awarded to Maria Ressa and Dmitry Muratov for “their efforts to safeguard freedom of expression, which is a precondition for democracy and lasting peace.” That implies said freedom is under attack. From who? Imagined monsters? twitter.com/PhilippineStar…

Bukod sa Vatican City, Pilipinas nalang ang teritoryo sa mundo na walang diborsyo, dahil na rin sa mariing pagtutol ng simbahang Katoliko. Panahon na ba upang magkaroon ng divorce law sa Pilipinas? #Diborsyo, mamayang gabi, sa @IWitnessGMA
Land grabbers are threatening the Masungi Georeserve, a popular tourist destination just outside Metro Manila. It is a growing problem in the Philippines, where companies and powerful individuals relentlessly seize control of land for use or investment.

Sa kasalukuyan, ang Pilipinas at Vatican na lang ang mga lugar kung saan ilegal pa rin ang diborsyo. Maganda o pangit na balita ito depende kung sino ang tatanungin.
Hanggang ngayon, patuloy pa rin ang debate tungkol sa diborsyo.
In the face of aggressive revisionism, both deliberate and inadvertent (but mostly deliberate), it’s important to revisit the facts and review the lessons we’ve learned from the dark years of the Marcos dictatorship. Here’s one succinct presentation: twitter.com/viceasia/statu…
A recent study also showed that defenders successfully stopped destructive projects in 11% of more than 3,000 environmental conflicts monitored across the world. Imagine what more these unsung heroes can do if we #DefendTheDefenders.
Indigenous peoples are our frontliners when it comes to protecting our last ecological frontiers against destructive industries causing the #ClimateCrisis. But they also comprise 30% of all #EnvironmentalDefenders killed across the world, based on a recent Global Witness report.
Just five months later, 27 year-old Lumad Mamanwa leader Nico Delamente was killed in this mining town. He was a fierce critic of alleged corruption over the royalties paid by nickel mining corporations operating in their ancestral grounds.
