According to authorities, naval reservist Jeremy Arceo’s body was found by a man walking his dog. Investigators said they found nothing that immediately indicates foul play was involved in Arceo’s death. But the Arceo family said they feel his death seems suspicious. Authorities are still investigating the case while toxicology tests are being performed. Arceo was last seen at home on September 24.

JAKARTA -- The sight of Cleveland Cavaliers guard Jordan Clarkson in a Pilipinas jersey will surely be an intimidating one for the Philippines’ opponents in the 2018 Asian Games -- including continental powerhouse China. This was the prediction of the stakeholders of Philippine basketball once the Filipino-American guard joined the national basketball team last Thursday in Jakarta. “Maski na mag-average score siya ng 10 to 15 points, malaking bagay sa atin ‘yun,” PBA Commissioner Willie Marcial said during the halftime of the Philippines’ game against Kazakhstan last Thursday, which turned into a 96-59 triumph for the nationals. “At kinakatakutan din siya, kasi NBA player,” he added. Clarkson was one of three NBA players granted a “one-time exemption” by the league to play in the Asiad, along with China’s Zhou Qi and Ding Yanyuhang, who play for Houston and Dallas, respectively. That Clarkson’s presence will boost his … [Read more...] about News ‘Kinakatakutan siya’: Clarkson will cause problems for PH foes in Asian Games
Pike, in his letter about US immigration (“Blame Clinton for border mess”, July 21), showed such an unbelievable and disturbing disregard for the facts that a response is needed. Virtually all news channels and newspapers have reported that President Trump’s “zero tolerance” policy was responsible for the separation of toddlers from their parents. This was not the policy of President Obama. Attorney General Jeff Sessions even stated that separations were being used to provide a deterrent strong enough to block the seeking of asylum in the US. The enormous uproar among his own Republican base forced Trump to rescind and suspend the order last month. Trump was responsible for initiating this insane, inhumane policy and yet Pike called Trump’s forced U-turn “compassionate”! Breathtaking. Mr Grant went to the trouble of complimenting Pike on his habit of giving evidence for his opinions (“Personal abuse versus original thought and … [Read more...] about How Trump supporters bend the facts to support their lies

By Marc Fisher The Washington Post Sari Horwitz Fri., Feb. 23, 2018 They are the sons of wealth, brought up in families accustomed to power. They were raised to show and demand respect, and they were raised to lead. They rose to positions of enormous authority, the president of the United States and the special counsel chosen to investigate him. They dress more formally than most of those around them; both sport meticulously coiffed hair. They have won unusual loyalty from those who believe in them. They attended elite all-male private schools, were accomplished high school athletes and went on to Ivy League colleges. As young men, each was deeply affected by the death of a man he admired greatly. Yet Robert Swan Mueller III and Donald John Trump, born 22 months apart in New York City, also can seem to come from different planets. One is courtly and crisp, the other blustery and brash. One turned away from the path to greater wealth while the other spent half … [Read more...] about Mueller and Trump: Born to wealth and raised to lead. Then, they made sharply different choices.
