By The Associated Press Tues., April 17, 2018 LAS VEGAS—Allegiant Air shares continue to fall in the aftermath of a news report that is raising serious safety questions about the low-cost carrier. Allegiant is defending its safety and says the report by CBS News’ 60 Minutes tells a “false narrative” about the airline. Investors, however, fear that the negative publicity will cause travellers to avoid Allegiant, which has a fleet including many older planes that typically require more maintenance. 60 Minutes reported Sunday night that between January 2016 and October 2017, the Las Vegas-based airline experienced more than 100 serious mechanical incidents, including aborted takeoffs, loss of cabin pressure, and emergency landings.

MANILA, Philippines – The Adamson University Lady Falcons will be in survival mode when they take on defending champion De La Salle University in the UAAP Season 80 women's volleyball tournament on Wednesday afternoon. Touted as a Final 4 contender at the start of the season, the Lady Falcons are barely hanging on in the playoff race as the elimination round winds down. Adamson has lost back-to-back matches in gutting fashion, as they dropped consecutive five-set marathons to Ateneo de Manila University and then to Far Eastern University (FEU). Making both defeats more painful? The Lady Falcons built 2-1 leads in each match, only to falter at the final hurdle. Their loss to the Lady Tamaraws last Saturday dropped them to 5-7 with two games left in their schedule, and put the Lady Falcons in an absolute must-win situation against the Lady Spikers. In simplest terms, another loss will eliminate Adamson from the race to the Final 4. "We're just extremely disappointed," Adamson … [Read more...] about News Coach Padda ponders: Which Adamson will show up against La Salle?
By David Montero Los Angeles Times Thu., March 29, 2018 LAS VEGAS—Mojave Max, the desert tortoise in Las Vegas who marks the arrival of spring each year when he emerges from his burrow, has always existed in the long shadow of Punxsutawney Phil —the ultimate case of a big star in a small market. It’s Phil who nabs the national headlines and knowing nods from high-profile news anchors when he is yanked out on Feb. 2 to let the nation know how much longer winter will last. The groundhog from Pennsylvania has always hogged the limelight when it comes to weather prognostication —a Goliath among all creatures great and small.
