MANILA – Operations of ABS-CBN TV Plus should have been ceased along with its other operations when it went off the air with the expiration of its legislative franchise last May, the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) said. “The law is the law and we have to obey that. Today, the continuing use of that frequency should stop,” Defensor told Cordoba. “The fact that ABS-CBN continues to air using the same frequency is not only a violation of the franchise but it is also a usurpation in the powers of Congress.” Cordoba’s statement came after he was questioned by Anakalusugan Partylist Rep. Mike Defensor for allowing the ABS-CBN TV Plus to go on with its operation even if its franchise expired last May 4. “In other words, ABS-CBN’s airing of digital TV on Channel 43 is part of the cease and desist order because the franchise that they used for that is ABS-CBN’s franchise,” he added. “[Provisional authority] was predicated on the effectivity of the franchise of the corporation…Cordoba should resign because he is not doing his job,” he added. Cordoba added that it has received guidance from the Office of the Solicitor General that the agency must issue an alias cease and desist order against the continued broadcast of ABS-CBN programs through the “digibox.” “All broadcast operations of ABS-CBN are only authorized through its expired franchise,” Cordoba said during the House of Representatives committee on legislative franchises hearing on ABS-CBN’s franchise renewal. Defensor added that the illegal operation of the network the last eight weeks was illegal and usufructuary and could merit Cordoba with charges before the Office of the Ombudsman. NTC commissioner Gamaliel Cordoba have committed to the House of Representatives to halt the ABS-CBN TV Plus services within Monday along with its Channel 43, which is using the franchise of AMCARA Broadcasting Network. ABS-CBN network has been off the air since May 5 after the NTC issued a cease and desist order against it due to the lack of a congressional franchise./PN

RelatedPosts EPL: Son fires four past Southampton EPL: Saints tackle Mourinho’s Spurs EPL: Crystal Palace stun sloppy Man U Danny Ings capitalised on calamitous Crystal Palace defending to earn Southampton a 1-1 draw and a precious point in the fight for Premier League survival. In-form Ings, who was coveted by Palace boss Roy Hodgson before joining boyhood club Saints in 2018, slotted home his 12th top-flight goal of the season with 16 minutes remaining following a dreadful pass from Eagles defender Martin Kelly. Ralph Hasenhuttl’s hosts had looked in danger of slipping to a seventh St Mary’s defeat of the campaign after James Tomkins nodded the opener early in the second period. Palace were also left to rue a disallowed first-half strike from midfielder Max Meyer, which was chalked off by VAR due to a narrow offside call against Wilfried Zaha. Saints, who sit four points above the relegation zone, are now three games unbeaten on the back of vital victories at Aston Villa and Chelsea, while Palace remain comfortably in mid-table. After an uninspiring opening 15 minutes, the game looked set to be sparked into life when the unmarked Meyer emphatically fired home Zaha’s pull back. The goal was celebrated exuberantly among Palace’s healthy away following but their joy was quickly cut short as a VAR check deemed Zaha’s left shoulder was marginally offside when he received the ball from James McArthur. The exceptionally-tight call was a major let off for Saints in their attempt to rid themselves of the worst home record in the division and build on crucial away wins either side of Christmas. Palace perhaps enjoyed their own moment of fortune in the 32nd minute when captain Luka Milivojevic escaped an early dismissal after furiously shouting at referee Andy Madley having been booked for bringing down Sofiane Boufal. Milivojevic’s angry reaction risked lightning striking twice for the Eagles, who last season had Zaha dismissed on this ground for sarcastically applauding a yellow card from referee Andre Marriner. Saints defender Jan Bednarek then squandered the best opportunity of an opening 45 minutes devoid of a shot on target when he fired over at the back post following James Ward-Prowse’s inviting free-kick from the right. The game was in desperate need of a breakthrough and it arrived five minutes after the restart. Milivojevic lifted a delightful curling free-kick into the box, allowing Tomkins to rise and nod his first goal since January into the bottom-right corner via the underside of the crossbar. Palace appealed in vain for a 59th-minute penalty after Ward-Prowse clumsily clattered into Meyer following Zaha’s powerful surge down the right. Saints were struggling to breakdown stubborn opposition until they received a helping hand in the 74th minute. Kelly’s sloppy backwards pass rolled behind team-mate Tomkins, allowing the prolific Ings, who had been rested at Stamford Bridge on Boxing Day, to run in on goal and coolly slot beyond Vicente Guaita. Hodgson, who awarded Ings his solitary England cap back in 2015, admitted in the build-up to the match that he still had ‘a bee in his bonnet’ about failing to take the player to Selhurst Park. Things almost became worse for the 72-year-old coach moments later when only a sensational one-handed save from Spanish goalkeeper Guaita denied Saints substitute Moussa Djenepo to prevent a quick-fire turnaround. Southampton edged the closing stages but were unable to force a winner.Tags: Danny IngsRoy HodgsonSouthamptonWilfried Zaha
Gregan, who progressed from his heat as a fastest loser, clocked 45.98 seconds after running out of legs in the home straight. The 23-year-old, whose season has been hampered by injury, said: “Missing that much training, to come back and run 46.0, 45.9 is positive. Ireland’s Brian Gregan bowed out of the World Championships after finishing seventh in his 400 metres semi-final in Moscow. “This was a bonus after making it through the heat. The last month has just been on and off, on and off, it’s not ideal coming into a World Championships. “But this should stand me in good stead for the Europeans next year, and onwards. My last 100 was a bit weak, but it was okay. I just couldn’t go with them around the last bend.” Press Association

By Simon EvansLISBON (Reuters) – After four thrilling quarter-finals, the upsets stopped at the last four stage in the Champions League, setting up Sunday’s final between Bayern Munich and Paris St Germain(PSG).Bayern, five-times winners, are back in the final for the first time since 2013 after ending a streak of four losses in the semi-final stage with Wednesday’s comfortable 3-0 win over Olympique Lyonnais.PSG are in the big game for the first time, having struggled to translate their dominance of the French league into a real challenge in Europe until wins here over Italian club Atalanta and Germany’s RB Leipzig secured their place.For the first time since 1998, the Champions League final will feature two teams who entered the competition as domestic champions, a throwback to the day’s of the old European Cup when only a country’s title winners were allowed to enter. While no fans will be present to witness the clash at the Estadio da Luz, home of Portuguese club Benfica, millions across the globe will watch the game which is the most-watched annual sports event in the world.And there is plenty of interest for those outside of Germany and France.PSG’s attack is led by Brazil’s biggest star Neymar, the exciting French World Cup winner Kylian Mbappe and the crafty Argentine winger Angel Di Maria. It will be fascinating to see if the French side can expose Bayern’s high defensive line which was breached several times by a wasteful Lyon.“Paris are a great team,” said Bayern coach Hansi Flick, “We will analyse some things, we know they have quick players. We will look to organise our defence, but we know our biggest strength is putting our opponents under pressure.”Bayern’s top scorer is Polish striker Robert Lewandowski, who leads the tournament’s scoring charts with 15 goals this season and has found the target 55 times in all competitions. The club’s 19-year-old left back Alphonso Davies has been the most exciting young player in the tournament and was born in a refugee camp in Ghana before moving to Canada, who he represents at national team level.On a tactical level, the final pits two German coaches against each other for only the second time in the tournament’s history. PSG’s Thomas Tuchel, the ex-Borussia Dortmund coach, has managed to give the French champion’s expensively assembled squad the balance and steel they have lacked in recent years.Flick only took over as Bayern coach in November but has had an astonishing impact. Since mid-December, Bayern have enjoyed 28 wins and a solitary draw, scoring 97 goals and conceding just 22.Bayern, who thrashed Barcelona 8-2 in their quarter-final, also have experience on their side.The Bavarians have already featured in the European Cup or Champions League final on ten occasions, winning their fifth title in 2013. PSG have only reached the last four once before and their best performance in Europe came in the old Cup Winner’s Cup which they won in 1996.
Oh Brett Favre and the Packers. You crazy devils. Just when fantasy owners had settled into the strategy of starting anyone and everyone against Green Bay, the Packers’ defense transforms into a turnover-machine and runs back a pair of interceptions to paydirt. Ah, who am I kidding, I’d still use the start-against-Packers technique.Talk about an interesting weekend ahead. The two best games are Jacksonville at Pittsburgh and New England at Denver, but neither is really a fantasy dream outside of a probable stellar performance by Tom Brady against the Broncos. Honestly, Mark Brunell threw for 322 yards against Mike Shanahan’s boys.Although less important than the two previously mentioned games, there are some match-ups with serious fantasy potential. I mean, San Diego at Oakland — LT and Randy Moss in one game. That has serious shootout potential. And St. Louis at Indianapolis? Who cares if the Colts’ scoring has been down — that’s nothing a date with a bad Rams’ defense can’t cure. And we all know Chad Johnson has a new dance, jig or something up his sleeve … it’s like the wait on Christmas morning.But, enough of this small talk. Let’s get right into it …Player of the weekDrew Bledsoe, QB Dallas Cowboys24-for-35, 289 yards, 3 touchdowns, 0 interceptionsWow. A week after I mock our mail bagger about his obsession with old immobile quarterbacks, Bledsoe and the Cowboys absolutely roll over the Eagles. Who woulda thunk it? So far, so good for Bledsoe owners — he’s rocking a 10-to-3 touchdown-to-interception ratio.MailbagDear Fantasy Fever,As we enter Week 6, I find my team with a battle for starting quarterback. Unfortunately, it is not because my signal callers are playing well. I drafted Daunte Culpepper thinking he was a lock, but we’ve all seen his meltdown this season. I also drafted Kerry Collins thinking he would be a solid backup, but he has also been serviceable at best. Now, since I was an idiot and drafted two QBs with the same bye week, I had to pick up Ben Roethlisberger last week and he got the job done, but wasn’t anything spectacular and also got banged up. All of these cats can play well, but it has become a guessing game. What do I do?Guessing on GilmanDear Guessing,I really feel for you — mainly because I was one of the many people who thought Culpepper would continue to play like a fantasy stud sans Randy Moss. You seem to have an entire quarterback spectrum on your team — and by that I mean a big risk (Culpepper), a fairly safe play with potential (Collins) and a very conservative play (Roethlisberger). I think Roethlisberger is a solid signal caller, but am not a big fan of him for fantasy. He has put up some nice numbers this year (mainly the seven touchdowns to no interceptions), but generally is around the 200-yard barrier on any given Sunday. At this point, Culpepper seems like far too big of a risk. I would wait until he finally recovers from this disastrous start and has one solid week before starting him — at this point he’s like some sort of radioactive man.So, I would go with Collins until Daunte battles through his slump. KC has yet to throw an interception yet this year (go ahead and knock on wood), and he’s throwing the ball to Randy Moss. Oakland’s only 1-3, but who cares? With the Chargers’ offense coming to town, the potential for a shootout is brewing.Smart startsQB Mark Brunell, Washington RedskinsThe magic’s not going to end against the Kansas City Chiefs’ defense.RB Thomas Jones, Chicago BearsMinnesota is dead last against the run, and somehow Jones keeps it up despite getting no help from Orton and the Bears’ passing attack.RB Tatum Bell, Denver BroncosAdmittedly a week late. But if they’re finally giving him the ball, put Bell in your lineup.WR Patrick Crayton, Dallas CowboysSleeper pick of the week on the basis that he is fast and the Giants’ secondary is bad.WR Michael Jenkins, Atlanta FalconsYou saw what the Packers did to the Saints last week. If Matt Schaub keeps it up, Falcons’ wide receivers actually become decent options.TE Heath Miller, Pittsburgh SteelersThey need to keep throwing this guy the ball.
After opening the Big Ten season with a big win at home against then-No. 10 Penn State last weekend, the Badger wrestling team has a tough task ahead. Tonight they head to Northwestern, and Saturday they head to perennial powerhouse and Coach Barry Davis’ alma mater, Iowa.”This is going to be a tough weekend,” Davis said. “We’ve got to take care of business at Northwestern first. Then we’ll head to the locker room, re-group, and talk about Saturday and Iowa.”Davis is using the same type of “one match at a time” mentality that has been successful for both Bret Bielema and Bo Ryan. The 9th ranked Badgers are off to a 15-0 start after defeating Penn State 17-16. The win total is the second highest in school history, and yet they are only at the midpoint of the season.”Beating Penn State was huge,” sophomore Zach Tanelli, 133 lbs., said. “The Big Ten is one of if not the toughest wrestling conference in the nation. Beating a team like that in the conference opener is a huge confidence booster.”Against Penn State, the unranked Tanelli upset the 6th ranked wrestler in the 133 lbs. weight class. For his effort Tanelli was named the Big Ten Co-Wrestler of the Week. Tanelli is currently 15-0 in dual competition this season.”It’s a great honor to be named wrestler of the week,” Tanelli said. “But (I) can’t let awards during the season overshadow my own goals and our team goals. I’m honored, but at the same time I have to focus on this weekend and Northwestern.”Northwestern comes into the match tonight with a 10-5 overall record in dual matches, but is 0-2 in the Big Ten after losing twice on road last weekend at Illinois and Iowa.”Each one of us have to do our own thing this weekend,” sophomore Dallas Herbst, 197 lbs., said. “Coach always tells us that if we each take care of business then everything else comes together.”Saturday the Badgers travel to Iowa, a familiar place for Davis. The Badgers coach was a four-time Big Ten Champion and All-American at Iowa, as well as a three-time NCAA Champion in the 1980’s. Davis still holds the Iowa record for most wins in a season and a career.”Coach is an awesome guy,” senior and team captain Tyler Turner, 149 lbs., said. “He knows the sport and cares about not only us as wrestlers but us as individuals. The energy he has for the game is great, and that spreads to all of us.”Although Davis and the Badgers are focusing on Northwestern first and will turn their minds to Iowa after Friday’s match is over, there are some things the Badgers must be keeping in the back of their minds. Wisconsin has lost the last 32 meetings against Iowa. In fact, the last time the Badgers defeated the Hawkeyes was in Iowa way back in 1966.”Beginning of the year we get the schedule, and we see this weekend on it,” Davis said. “Now that we are in the Big Ten season, we have to kick it up to a whole other level. Our young guys are doing a great job, and hopefully their hard work will give us some good results this weekend.”
