LTFRB ALLOWS PETS IN PUBLIC VEHICLES

MANILA — The Land Transportation, Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB)
has allowed passengers to bring their pets in public utility vehicles
(PUVs).
In a memorandum issued on Jan. 27, the LTFRB amended the terms and
conditions of Certificate of Public Convenience, allowing pets in PUVs
provided that the animals are seated beside the owners and the seats are
paid for.
The new guidelines, which take effect yesterday, stated that pets may be
allowed to be carried by the owner as long as they are free from foul odor
and wearing diapers.
If there are other passengers, pets should be placed in carriers or cages at
a designated animal compartment of the PUV.
Under the memorandum, the owner of the pet should be responsible for any
damage the animal may cause.


TONY LABRUSCA CLARIFIES: 'I'M STILL SINGLE'

MANILA -- With Valentine's Day coming up, heartthrob Tony Labrusca stressed
that he is still single.
"Recently, a lot of people keep wondering if I'm dating or if I'm single and
I just wanted to come from me na guys I'm still single. So please," Labrusca
said in an interview with ABS-CBN News after he inked a new contract with
the Kapamilya network.
"Because most of the time I just let people talk, let people assume whatever
they want. Parang this Valentine's Day I just wanted to clarify na single pa
rin ako," he said.
Asked if there's someone claiming that they're in a relationship, the actor
replied: "Marami. So I wanted it to come from me na I'm single."
Right now, Labrusca believes that it's better for him to focus on his
career.
"After signing today, I think work is better. Okay lang na single ka for a
while," said Labrusca who is set to do a film and a series.


PBA RE-SCHEDULES OPENING OF 45TH SEASON

MANILA – The PBA on Monday announced that it is rescheduling the opening of
its 45th season as well as that of the D-League, in light of the
precautionary measures being taken by the government amid the novel
coronavirus outbreak.
The PBA season was set to open on March 1 at the Araneta Coliseum. It will
instead start on March 8, still at the Big Dome.
Meanwhile, the opening of the D-League has been moved from February 13 to
March 2 at the Paco Arena.
"It's a preventive measure against nCoV," PBA commissioner Willie Marcial
said in a statement.
"It's now in place and will be implemented. The safety of our fans, teams,
players and officials remain to be our utmost priority," he added.
There would be no changes to the activities on Day 1, however. Defending
champion San Miguel Beer will still open its campaign against Magnolia.
It will be an early rematch between the two teams that squared off in the
finals of the All-Filipino Cup last year, won by the Beermen in seven games.
The opening day will be highlighted by the Season 44 Leo Awards, with the
league's MVP set to be named.
As the stats race winner plus being the lead man of the SMB team that barely
came up short of completing a grand slam, Cebuano behemoth June Mar Fajardo
looks poised to bag a sixth MVP plum.
Columbian Dyip’s CJ Perez, NLEX’s Christian Standhardinger and TNT KaTropa’s
Jayson Castro are the other MVP contenders.
