Filipino fans painted a giant mural of late basketball star Kobe Bryant together with his daughter Gianna inside a neighborhood basketball court in Taguig City on Tuesday (January 28) as a tribute to the late sportsman.

Bryant and his daughter were among the nine passengers killed in a helicopter crash in the Santa Monica foothills near Calabasas, California, United States on Sunday (January 26).

Fans painted the picture to pay tribute to Bryant, both as an athlete and as a father.

They started painting the mural on Monday and completed it overnight.

Basketball is one of the Philippines’ most popular sports, with makeshift courts popping up appearing in many neighborhoods and children frequently seen playing on the streets.

Bryant rocketed to fame as an 18-year-old rookie and played 20 years for the Los Angeles Lakers. Nicknamed the “Black Mamba”, he was named in the NBA all-star team 18 times and won five NBA championships.

Magulang ng mga batang lumalabag sa curfew at ‘di nagsusuot ng face mask, ikukulong – Mayor Isko

Robie de Guzman   •   July 14, 2020

MANILA, Philippines – Nagbabala si Manila Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso na papanagutin ang mga magulang ng mga batang mahuhuling lumalabag sa mga ordinansa ng lungsod gaya ng curfew at pagsusuot ng face mask sa gitna ng coronavirus crisis.

Ayon kay Domagoso, inatasan na niya ang Manila Police District (MPD) at Manila Social Welfare Department na hulihin at ikulong ang mga magulang ng mga menor de edad na hindi sumusunod sa mga nabanggit na ordinansa.

Ang hakbang ay kasunod ng mga ulat ng mga batang inaabutan ng mga otoridad sa kalsada kahit dis-oras na ng gabi at wala pang suot na face mask.

Sa datos ng MPD mula Marso 15 hanggang Hulyo 13, nasa 1,039 na ang nahuling lumabag sa Ordinance No. 8644 o ang Mandatory Use of Face Mask in the Public.

Nasa 9,367 naman ang nadakip dahil sa paglabag sa Curfew Ordinance. Karamihan sa mga nahuling pagala-gala sa kalsada sa oras ng curfew ay mga menor de edad.

“Kaya ngayon ang focus ng manila police district sa implementation ng curfew ordinance natin pati yung magulang kakasuhan natin yung mga pabayang magulang,” ani Police Brigadier General Rolando Miranda, MPD director.

Sa ilalim ng City Ordinance No. 8243 o ang Anti-Child Endangerment Ordinance, maaaring maharap sa multang P5,000 o kaya ay hanggang anim na buwang pagkakakulong ang isang magulang na napatunayang nagpabaya sa kanyang anak na may edad na 12 taong gulang pababa.

Multang P3,000 o kaya’y tatlong buwang pagkakakulong naman para sa mga magulang na nagpabaya sa kanilang mga anak na may edad 13 hanggang 14 taon habang P2,000 naman ang multa o isang buwang pagkakapiit ang parusa sa mga magulang na magpapabaya sa kanilang anak na may edad 15 hanggang 17 taong gulang. – RRD (mula sa ulat ni Correspondent Dante Amento)

Pilot in Kobe Bryant helicopter crash may have become disoriented in heavy fog – NTSB

UNTV News   •   June 18, 2020

The pilot of a helicopter that crashed in foothills near Los Angeles, killing basketball great Kobe Bryant, his daughter, and all seven others on board, likely became disoriented in the fog, federal investigators said on Wednesday (June 17).

The National Transportation Safety Board report said pilot Ara Zobayan told air traffic controllers that his helicopter was climbing, when in fact it was descending shortly before slamming into a hillside outside the community of Calabasas on Jan. 26.

The NTSB said that pilots can become confused over an aircraft’s attitude and acceleration when they cannot see the sky or landscape around them, causing “spacial disorientation.”

“Without outside references or attention to the helicopter’s attitude display, the actual pitch and bank angles have the potential to be misperceived,” the NTSB said.

The findings came in a “public docket” released by the NTSB as it investigates the crash. The agency has not yet released its final report. (Reuters)
