first_imgThe social pension is released per semester orevery six months, thus each beneficiary gets P3,000. The release was originallydone every quarter but this was modified. ILOILO City – For this year as of Dec. 2, P1.4billion has so far been released to 246,421 social pensioners in WesternVisayas, according to the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD). The 246,421 is 70 percent of the 365,908target beneficiaries of the national government’s Social Pension Program forIndigent Senior Citizens (SPISC) in the region, said Judith Tañate- Barredo,DSWD Region 6 social pension focal person. Under SPISC, a monthly stipend of P500 isreleased to an indigent senior citizen. But in September this year, DSWD Region 6started releasing P6,000 to each beneficiary covering a whole year of pension. “We are waiting for more names ofbeneficiaries to be downloaded by our central office,” said Macapobre. “We hope to release the pension of theremaining beneficiaries before this year ends,” said Tañate- Barredo. The list of qualified social pensioners wasdownloaded to regional offices in batches. Even then, some pensioners complained nothaving received theirs. DSWD regional director Ma. Evelyn Macapobre said thiswas due to the revalidation of the list of beneficiaries by the department’scentral office. The senior citizen must have no permanentsource of income and/or frail, sickly or with disability. Senior citizens with regular support fromtheir families or have pensions from the Social Security System, GovernmentService Insurance System and/or private offices are not eligible for thepension, she stressed./PNlast_img read more

Champions League live stream: How to watch 2020 UEFA soccer games online in USA

first_imgMORE: Watch select Champions League games on fuboTVCBS All Access is not the only live streaming service that will show Champions League games as the 2019-20 season reboots, but it’s the only one that will carry all 11 matches from the Round of 16 second leg through the Final on Aug. 23.Along with the new TV/live stream options for Champions League games in the U.S. is a condensed schedule of competition, as the quarterfinals and semifinals will now play out as single-leg fixtures at a neutral site rather than the typical home-and-home aggregate format for those rounds.Below are all of the details.Champions League live stream: How to watch games in the USAThere are four good (and by good we mean legal) ways to live stream Champions League games in the U.S., though only one option includes all 11 matches set to be played from the Round of 16 second leg through the Champions League Final in Lisbon.Streaming serviceChampions League accessCostFree trial?CBS All AccessAll games$5.99 per monthYesfuboTVSelect games$59.99 per monthYesYouTubeTVSelect games$64.99 per monthYesHuluSelect games$59.99 per monthYesCBS was supposed to take over the exclusive English language rights for Champions League matches starting in 2021, but it did so ahead of schedule after Turner Sports prematurely ended its deal in June. So CBS is now the home for Champions League action in the United States, but it will not show any of the 11 remaining matches this season on its over-air cable network.All Champions League matches are available live on CBS All Access, which is the network’s online streaming service. A select few, including the Champions League Final, will be shown on TV via CBS Sports Network, which is available on live TV streaming services fuboTV, YouTubeTV and Hulu.That select few, though, only includes a pair of Round of 16 second leg matches (Manchester City vs. Real Madrid and Barcelona vs. Napoli) and the Champions League Final. So those are the only three Champions League matches scheduled to be shown on fuboTV, YouTube TV and Hulu.All 11 matches, however, will be shown on CBS All Access, which makes it the easy choice for a live streamer who is signing up only to watch Champions League games.CBS All Access starts at $5.99 a month, but it is offering a one-month free trial promotion for new subscribers through mid-August. Users can cancel subscriptions at any time.Below are the devices on which CBS All Access can be streamed:AndroidiPhoneiPadApple TVGoogle ChromecastAmazon FireTVLGPlayStation 4Xbox OneRokuSamsungVisioXfinityWhat is CBS All Access?CBS All Access is so much cheaper than the other live TV streaming options listed above because it includes only programming from CBS and its affiliates rather than a wide range of TV channels. It is basically the network’s hub for all-things CBS.The majority of CBS All Access content is on-demand programming. The library includes all of CBS’ original TV series, as well as those from BET, Comedy Central, Nickelodeon, MTV and the Smithsonian channel, all CBS properties.The Champions League games will fall under CBS All Access’ live programming, which includes your local CBS cable station, CBSN, CBS Sports HQ and ET Live.Champions League schedule 2020The coronavirus shut down live sports on the same day (March 11) that Paris Saint-Germain beat Dortmund and Atlético Madrid topped Liverpool to advance to the Champions League quarterfinals. That left four Round of 16 games left on the schedule. The Champions League recently determined all four remaining Round of 16 matches could play out at their originally scheduled locations before the tournament heads to Lisbon, Portugal, the neutral site for all semifinal and quarterfinal matches as well as the Final.”It’s a phenomenal format for us in the U.S. to do it this way,” ViacomCBS chief digital officer Marc DeBevoise told The Associated Press. “A single elimination tournament is something these audiences fully understand. Obviously, there are big soccer fans but March Madness having been effectively canceled, I think people are hungry for things like this.”All Champions League matches are scheduled to start at 3 p.m. ET.

It aims to inspire more people to play the sport by offering great value coaching with PGA professionals.Both Tom and Elaine share a passion for the sport. “I just love golf,” said Elaine (image © Leaderboard Photography). “I think it’s a great way of socialising, exercising and enjoying fantastic scenery – you’ve got everything in one package.”Elaine plays her golf in Hampshire, where she is a five-handicap member at Brokenhurst Manor. She has been ladies’ captain and a member of both the ladies’ committee and the board of directors at her club. She’s also been the junior organiser for the Hampshire ladies and been much involved with the development of girl golfers in the county.Her daughters, Laura, 19, and Charlotte, 17, are both single-figure players – and Charlotte has just helped Hampshire to win the English women’s county championship.Elaine takes over from Dee Wood, who is retiring after three years to spend more time with her six grandchildren.

I believe golf is a sport that helps develop excellent life skills. It can also be played and enjoyed for life.”Click here to find out more about the Get into golf campaign 23 Oct 2014 New faces join County Golf Partnerships last_img read more

Penguins a true test of Bruins depth

first_imgBOSTON—Depth was a key ingredient for the Boston Bruins in winning the Stanley Cup in 2011, and it’s a strength on this Bruins team as well. But we’ll find out in the Eastern Conference finals whether it’s a blueprint that will deliver another chance at a championship.Unlike vanquished foes Toronto and New York, top-seeded Pittsburgh can match the Bruins’ depth. The Penguins won all three games against the Bruins in the regular season, all by a single goal.“No doubt they’re a great hockey club. In my mind, they’re almost like the Miami Heat of the NHL with all the star power they got,” Bruins forward Milan Lucic said. “Probably the two best players in the world and a 40-goal scorer and the former 50-goal scorer, a future Hall of Famer and a Norris Trophy candidate on their team.“So, they definitely have a lot of weapons and in saying all that, I think what makes them successful is they play real well as a team and I think that’s what you’re going to probably see going into this next series, is two well-rounded teams going at it and for us we’ve got to be ready and excited for the challenge.”For each team, scoring production has been spread throughout their lines.The Bruins’ top line of Lucic, David Krejci and Nathan Horton has combined for 39 points in 12 games. Krejci has five goals and 12 assists for 17 points, which leads all players in the Stanley Cup playoffs. PENQUINS GET READY FOR EASTERM CONFERENCE FINALS (AP PHOTO)last_img read more
