SCHIPHOL – There were 298 people, including 154 Dutch nationals, on board the Malaysia Airlines flight that crashed in strife-torn eastern Ukraine on Thursday, an official from the carrier said.

“There were 283 passengers and 15 crew members on board the plane,” Malaysian Airlines vice president Huib Gorter told reporters at a press conference at Amsterdam’s Schiphol airport from where the doomed flight had taken off.

He gave a preliminary breakdown of the passenger’s nationalities, saying: “154 were Dutch, 27 were Australian.”

In addition, 23 others were from Malaysia, 11 were Indonesian, six were British, four were German, another four were from Belgium, three were from the Philippines and one was Canadian.

Around 50 passengers remained unidentified, Gorter said.

Air traffic control lost contact with the Boeing 777-400 around 14:15 (12:15 GMT) near the Russian-Ukrainian border, the Malaysia Airlines official said.





Flight MH17 took off from Schiphol shortly after noon and was supposed to land in Kuala Lumpur at around 06:10 am local time, Gorter said.

Malaysia Airlines will send a team to Ukraine on Friday to help with the investigation.

Another airplane will also be made available to grieving relatives wanting to visit the crash site, Gorter said.

Questioned about the cause of the plane crash, Gorter said: “At this stage we are still looking at it from the viewpoint of being an accident.”

Earlier, shocked and crying relatives were shielded from the press as they arrived at Schiphol to be taken to a special gathering area.

They were later escorted from the airport and taken by bus to an undetermined destination, Dutch news agency ANP reported.

The crash is the Netherlands’ second-largest air disaster to date.

The country’s largest disaster happened in March 1977 when 238 Dutch citizens died in Tenerife when two Boeing 747s crashed with the loss of 582 lives.

MANILA, Philippines — Kiefer Ravena led Ateneo to a wire-to-wire win over Adamson 79-57 in the UAAP Season 77 men’s basketball tournament Sunday at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

Ravena knocked in 22 points for the Blue Eagles, who also drew a solid game from blue-chip rookie Arvin Tolentino.
“What’s really important right now, I just make sure that at the back of our minds we want to be better than last season,” said Ateneo coach Bo Perasol.

“It’s a new start for us. Now it’s a 0-0 standing. It’s a new adventure for us and we started it with a win,” said Ravena, who also collected four rebounds, four assists and three assists.

Tolentino, the former San Beda star, scored 12 points and so did athletic guard Chris Newsome.

Ateneo raced to a 10-1 lead to start the game and led by as much as 29, 72-43, in the fourth quarter.

Next up for Ateneo? An early date with old rival and defending champion De La Salle, which will be coming off a shocking 77-82 setback at the hands of Far Eastern University last Saturday, next Sunday.

“We’re gonna play the defending champs. We need to double our efforts,” said Ravena.

Rookie Ivan Villanueva paced the rookie-laden Falcons, who shot 29% from the two-point area and had 22 turnovers, with 15 points and nine rebounds.

PNoy admits drug conviction of Nora Aunor is considered to drop her as a National Artist!

Source: Interaksyon.com

MANILA – President Benigno Aquino III on Tuesday admitted that the drug case of veteran actress Nora Aunor was behind his decision not to proclaim her National Artist, but his claim that she was “convicted” in the US was quickly disputed by Aunor’s lawyer.

“I respect her. I respect her body of work, but my problem is our administration’s message is zero tolerance for drugs all the time,” Aquino said in an interview in Pampanga aired over state-run Radyo ng Bayan.

“National Artists should have contributed much to the Filipino race. But (Aunor) was implicated in a drug case and served sentence for it,” he added.

“If I proclaimed her National Artist, I am sure there will be those who will ask how can she be considered a role model. That is really the nature of my job,” Aquino said.

The President clarified that his decision was nothing personal.

“My father is a fan. And even I admire her story — from a vendor of water bottles in bus stations to becoming a superstar,” Aquino added.

In 2005, she was arrested in California for possession of shabu. In a Facebook post, California lawyer Claire Navarro Espina clarified that she was never convicted.

“Nora Aunor was never convicted of a crime, let alone a crime involving drugs here in Los Angeles. I should know – I was the attorney who represented her. Two reporter friends have already pm’d me this issue – again today. Apparently misinformation over in the Philippines on this issue.”

According to some accounts, charges were dropped after Aunor pleaded no contest, paid a fine and undergo rehabilitation.

Morality is also not a criterion in the selection of a National Artist, a process that took three years.

Below is the raw transcript of the President’s remarks on Ms. Aunor Tuesday morning:

PRESIDENT AQUINO: Okay. Iyong first of all, for the record, iyong tatay ko isa sa mga fans ni Nora Aunor at pati ako humahanga sa naabot niya. Tandaan natin ang kwento niya, nagtitinda sa bus — ‘di ba mga bus stations noong araw, napunta doon sa “Tawag ng Tanghalan” at mula doon siya naging superstar and the singular superstar, okay.

Now, noong humarap sa akin itong mga nominations, isa lang naman ang tanong: Ano ba ang titulo? national artist.

At sa aking pananaw iyong National Artist iyong binibigyan natin ng honor na ito, puri na ganito, dahil gusto natin sabihin malaki ang inambag sa lahing Pilipino at dapat tularan.

Ngayon ang naging problema ko lang doon, alam naman natin lahat na iginagalang ko ulit si Binibining Nora Aunor, na-convict po siya sa drugs.

Na-convict at naparusahan at ang tanong ngayon dito, ‘pag ginawa ba nating national artist may mensahe ba akong maliwanag na sinasabi sa sambayanan?

Alam ninyo iyong drugs meron tayong local na problemang pagkatagal-tagal na.

Sinamahan pa ng nakita naman ninyo iyong mga reports na may West African syndicates, merong tila umano Mexican syndicates na pumapasok na sa Pilipinas at nagkakalat ng bawal na droga.

Ayokong magkaroon ng mensahe na kung minsan pwede iyong illegal na droga or acceptable.

Iyong dapat iyong mensahe it is always bad and illegal drugs do nobody any good; and I cannot emphasize that message enough, ano, and at the same time parang raise Ms. Nora Aunor to be a national — I repeat, ano, iyong the National Artist. Ngayon palagay ko naman kung ginagwa ko siyang national artist, may kabilang panig namang magsasabing: “Paano siya as a role model?”

So ganun talaga itong trabahong ito, maski anong desisyon ko, meron talagang papanig doon sa salungat sa anumang desisyon ko.

So ulitin ko lang, ano, iginagalang ko siya, kinikilala ko iyong kanyang trabaho at saka mga obra pero ang problema ko mukhang mas mataas iyong prayoridad na maliwanag na may mensahe iyong droga zero tolerance tayo dito — mali all the time.
