Ramos does famous jump in UAAP opening

FORMER President Fidel Ramos took the time off from his busy schedule to grace the opening of the 75th University Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP) on Saturday at the state-of-the-art Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City.

Ramos, the guest of honor of host National University (NU), also delighted the crowd with his signature jump he made 26 years ago during the Edsa People Power Revolution, which toppled the dictatorial rule of then President Ferdinand Marcos.

Wearing a blue and yellow polo shirt, the former President did the famous jump when his presence was acknowledged by NU president Nilo Ocampo to the delight of thousands of paying fans, students and alumni.

Ramos took up civil engineering at NU in 1946 but he failed to finish the degree when he went to the United States as a scholar at world-renowned West Point military academy.

Lasting for nearly an hour, this year’s opening rites was peppered with indoor fireworks display and hip-hop performances from eight member-schools.

Founded in 1938, the country’s premier collegiate league groups Adamson University, Ateneo De Manila University, De La Salle University, Far Eastern University, NU, University of the East, University of the Philippines and University of Santo Tomas. (Virgil Lopez/Sunnex)

MANILA — Fans of the late Comedy King Dolphy lined up under the heat at the Heritage Park in Taguig City on Saturday, the last day of the public viewing of the actor’s remains.

Other stars were Mark Bautista, TJ Trinidad, Gie Tongie, Geoff Eigenmann, Carla Abellana, Kyla and Ogie Diaz.

The public viewing is expected to end at 6 p.m.

A necrological mass, sponsored by Zsa Zsa Padilla’s “ASAP” family, will be held at the memorial chapel Saturday night. It will be followed by another eulogy arranged by Dolphy’s contemporaries and other comedians he worked with over the years. Another necrological service is scheduled on Sunday morning.

Dolphy’s burial on Sunday will not be open to the public but the Quizon family has allowed live media coverage. The burial is expected to start around 2 p.m. The Comedy King’s final resting place is a simple black granite tomb located along the main road of the Heritage Park west cemetery.

Navy tries to get picture of stuck Chinese gunship
MANILA (Updated 1:45 p.m.) – The Naval forces is yet to have a visual confirmation of the Chinese ship that ran aground at a shoal at the disputed Spratly Islands in the West Philippine Sea near Palawan province, a top official said Saturday.

The Sydney Morning Herald earlier said the Chinese ship, a Jianghu-class frigate no. 560, ran aground at the unoccupied Half Moon Shoal or Hasa-hasa shoal on Thursday night. It said the ship remains “thoroughly stuck.”

Commodore Rustom Peña, commander of the Naval Forces West, said they sent a team to Halfmoon Shoal on Saturday to augment the Coast Guard that has dispatched a team to the area.

“As of now we are preparing our assets. We still don’t have a visual confirmation. As of now, I cannot give statements; I have yet to confirm (the incident). There is still no visual,” Peña said.

Peña said the undisclosed Navy assets may arrive at the shoal, about 60 nautical miles from Rizal town in Palawan, Saturday afternoon.

He said he only learned from the media that China had already confirmed that one of its frigates was stuck at the shoal.

“As far as we are concerned, the Coast Guard sent (assets there), they’re on the way there and our (Navy) assets are ready. If they (China) are in distress there, we will try to provide assistance. That is our task there,” said Peña.

A military source earlier said the stuck Chinese ship had been frequently monitored to be moving around the Chinese-occupied Mischief and Subi reefs and at the unoccupied Quirino Atoll. He surmised that the ship’s area of responsibility is the Spratly Islands.

Hasahasa shoal is part of the Spratlys, a chain of islands and islets believed to be rich in oil and mineral deposits, that is being claimed by the Philippines, China, Taiwan, Malaysia, Vietnam and Brunei. (VR/Sunnex)
