Did you know that former DILG Secretary/Senatoriable Mar Roxas and his wife Korina Sanchez almost lost their twins two months before they were born in the US? “Before Christmas last year, the woman carrying the babies was involved in an accident,” Mar recalled to a select group of movie writers over a thanksgiving lunch on Monday at their home inside the “White House” compound in Quezon City. “She was driving and a drunk driver bumped her car. We rushed to the ER (Emergency Room) where she was brought to check her condition. Luckily, the air bag protected her. We were worried because it was our last chance to have a baby.” Babies, actually.

By Rosie DiManno Star Columnist Tues., April 30, 2019 ANAHEIM, CALIF.—He remembers Disneyland. Papa took him there lots. “Seven times maybe?” He remembers watching batting practice from behind the cage, chubby fingers entwined in the netting. Because he wasn’t permitted out in the field. “They didn’t allow the kids to shag because they didn’t want anybody to get hit.” He remembers disappointment when the Angels didn’t appoint him team bat boy. “Almost. But the team, for some reason, didn’t allow me to do it.” He remembers being encouraged by Angels broadcaster Jose Mota to pick up a bat. In the memory, Ivan Rodriguez was there too, except of course Pudge never played for Anaheim, so the recollection has been conflated with his father’s Texas days. “They told me to grab the bat and swing like my dad did. “I remember everything.” Article Continued Below So many … [Read more...] about The Junior Show takes to the road, to Vlad Sr.’s old haunt, waiting for the first home run

I had spent weeks researching and championing camel milk’s status as the “future of dairy” to my colleagues; now I had to taste it. As I went to try the surprisingly thick beverage, my nose wrinkled, my lips pursed. I realised that something I had not expected was holding me back: Prejudice.Camels were first domesticated for their milk in 3,000 BC, according to the UN, and the liquid is a staple in parts of the Middle East and North Africa, where it can be cheaper than cow’s milk. Now it is gaining popularity with producers and customers elsewhere, from health nuts in America to farmers in sub-Saharan Africa reckoning with climate change.The milk is low in lactose, allowing it to be digested by people with a dairy intolerance and cutting into the market share of nut milks.Touted by fanatics for its alleged medical benefits and by … [Read more...] about Camel milk could be the future of dairy.
