LONDON (Reuters) - Lewis Hamilton retook the lead in the Formula One championship with his 100th win in Russia on Sunday but engine concerns are hanging over the Mercedes driver's bid for a record eighth title. Team mate Valtteri Bottas took a hit and started 16th on the grid in Sochi after Mercedes replaced some power unit elements in his car. While the Finn is now using his fifth engine, two more than permitted without penalty, Hamilton is still within his allowance. Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff said there were "some question marks" and decisions to be made regarding the power units, with customer teams Williams and McLaren also experiencing problems in Sochi. "We are in a phase of assessment how to continue this season in terms of power units," added the Austrian. Adding to the concern, Hamilton's Red Bull title rival Max Verstappen looks in good shape for the remaining seven races after taking a new engine in Russia and still finishing second after starting last. ... » Learn More about Hamilton hits 100 but engine concerns hang over title bid
Founded in what’s known as the South Summer Capital of the Philippines, Shades of Native is a five-piece indie folk-rock band that delivers both diversity and unity. Wally Allegado, who is the male vocalist/guitarist of the group, said that the band first came to be on a special evening in YAKĀ – a well-known resto-bar for artists in the city of Malaybalay, Bukidnon. “We met in 2017 or 2018, where we got together. In Malaybalay, we decided to have a live gig and it was a small gathering for my high school batchmates,” he said. Despite coming from Dumaguete, sisters Anna and Maria Dizo, the female vocalist and the cellist of the band, respectively, happened to perform at the same event, which later inspired Wally to introduce the idea of forming a band. “We decided to collaborate and it was just meant to be,” he said. It wasn’t long until the trio met percussionist Jaq Lopez and bassist Aaron Sumampong – still in the same resto-bar. From then on, ... » Learn More about Shades of Native: On musical diversity and the tambols of Bukidnon
(Reuters) -Instagram has hit pause on a new app it is creating for kids, the photo-sharing service owned by Facebook Inc said on Monday, in a move that comes amid growing opposition for the project. Instagram Kids had been touted as requiring parental permission to join, and was supposed to provide ad-free, age-appropriate content, but U.S. lawmakers and advocacy groups have urged the social media giant to drop its launch plans, citing safety concerns. "We won't stop pressuring Facebook until they permanently pull the plug," said Josh Golin, executive director of Fairplay, an advocacy group focused on kids. Instagram said in a blog post https://bit.ly/3ibmGMH that building Instagram Kids was the right thing to do, but that it was pausing the work and would continue building on its parental supervision tools. "The reality is that kids are already online, and we believe that developing age-appropriate experiences designed specifically for them is far better for parents than ... » Learn More about Facebook puts Instagram Kids on hold amid criticism of planned app
Cooling-off Day for GE2020 falls on July 9. No campaigning or election advertising is allowed during the 24-hour period. The same restrictions apply on Polling Day. Campaigning efforts coming to an end In a nine-minute IGTV video , Workers' Party candidate Nicole Seah chatted with followers on the progress of her team's walkabouts and campaigning efforts on the last day before Cooling-off Day.

According to the ELD , the period of silence is meant to give voters some time to “reflect rationally on issues raised during the election".

LONDON (Reuters) - Jadon Sancho's lack of game time at Manchester United is "hurting the soul" of the man who sanctioned his 73 million- pound ($100 million) move to Old Trafford, Borussia Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke. The 21-year-old England international has started only two of United's five Premier League games and was an unused substitute in the 1-0 defeat by Aston Villa on Saturday. "Of course, I keep track of what he's doing. It also hurts my soul that he is so neglected," Watzke told SPORT1. "I love Jadon, when you see him play you get tears in your eyes. I think his problem is that he's not that settled in the English national team." Winger Sancho has made only one 90-minute appearance for United with manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer seeming to prefer Mason Greenwood on the right. Former United midfielder Paul Ince was critical of Sancho's performance in the 1-0 defeat by West Ham United in the League Cup last week. "I know he's still young, I get that he's ... » Learn More about Sancho’s treatment at Man United ‘hurting my soul’ – Dortmund CEO
PARIS (Reuters) - Lionel Messi's sensational transfer to Paris St Germain was a surprise for everyone, Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola said, adding that he hopes the Argentine plays in Tuesday's Champions League group game between the two sides. Messi joined PSG in August when he left Barcelona after the Spanish club -- where he had spent his entire career -- were unable to finance a new deal for the forward. The 34-year-old suffered a knock on his left knee last week and is a doubt for the clash against the team led by his former Barca coach Guardiola. "It was a surprise for everyone -- what happened, happened. Everyone now accepts it," Guardiola told reporters on Monday when asked about Messi leaving Barca. "Long time ago you couldn't imagine (it), but it happened. Life itself, you never know what happens. What's important is that he'll be happy there in Paris. "I think this type of player speaks for itself on the pitch, I don't have to add anything else. We were ... » Learn More about Guardiola hopes to see Messi play Man City in Champions League
Most Filipinos are like kids. They do not care about logic. They only understand who is in front of them. And they tend to follow their parent, no matter how abusive he is. We are obviously seeing it during the Duterte administration, whether out of fear, apathy, ignorance, or ego. The sad part is we have seen this before. Nearly five decades have passed since then-President Ferdinand Marcos declared Martial Law in the Philippines. While he claimed this was done to suppress civil unrest and communist threats, it became glaringly obvious that he simply took advantage of the chaos to create a dictatorship that plundered this nation for the next 14 years. The impacts of Martial Law are so devastating that we are still feeling the consequences today. By the time Marcos was kicked out of Malacañang, the Philippine economy was in bad shape from the corruption and heavy borrowing from other countries. Poverty rates drastically increased, the value of the peso went ... » Learn More about [OPINION] Time to move on from Martial Law?
I got pretty mad last week over Toni Gonzaga-Soriano interviewing Bongbong Marcos, and letting the former senator further whitewash Marcos-era history. It kind of reminded me of who I was at my core: a writer influenced by the things they see, hear, smell, feel or intuit. A few weeks ago, it had been the somewhat controversial game Axie Infinity that fueled a creative surge in me. It was a game unlike any other I’ve played before because of its merging of digital and physical worlds – a “metaverse” quality. There are only a few things in the world I like writing about than a good video game, although of course my interests have expanded since my FHM magazine days, where my last story would be a cover girl profile on 2000s Japanese adult star Maria Ozawa. From one Maria to another, I made the transfer to Rappler, where, of course, I would be much closer to the world of politics. What’s my point? My background had made me feel like having a political opinion ... » Learn More about [OPINION] A Toni-BBM postscript: Take a stand
I always tell people that running in an election without a substantial funding is a losing game. Often, they would always ask me back, “Why don’t you do crowdfunding?” They always refer to the United States elections, where ordinary people fund their candidates. In the Philippines, election funding would traditionally come either from the politicians’ own pockets or they would rely on contributions from business people, a gesture that is widely perceived as an “investment” that would get business protection in return. The lucky ones would have both. This makes our elections elitist and anti-poor as only the rich and the well-connected have the realistic chance of winning. The game in the United States is very different. For example, Bernie Sanders, who is a popular socialist senator from Vermont, was able to raise a total of $211,125,958 as of September 2020 from crowdfunded contributions. According to Open Secrets, which tracks data on campaign finance and lobbying in ... » Learn More about [OPINION] How about we crowdfund candidates in the Philippines?
