As the chief architect of the country’s foreign policy, President Rodrigo Duterte declared on day one of his administration he would be guided by the principle: “A friend to all, an enemy to no one.” That was after President Duterte took over the reins of the Philippine government in June 2016. A year later, when Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) Secretary Teodoro Locsin Jr. replaced his immediate predecessor in office, he further refined this principle: “A friend to all, an enemy to none, a worst enemy to a false friend.” Having said that, it would seem that the extended version of this administration’s foreign policy is also being applied on the domestic politics policy of President Duterte. This was most pronounced when the Chief Executive blasted one of the key members of the pro-administration bloc at the Senate after openly criticizing him on the appointment to civilian posts in government of newly retired police and military officials.

LONDON: At different times described as a "straw-coloured mop", "eccentrically windblown" and resembling a "medieval monk", Boris Johnson's talismanic haircut has helped define a political career that has now led to Downing Street.The messy mass of platinum blond locks has become an unmistakable brand in an era where celebrity and politics have combined, symbolising the chaotic and gaffe-prone style that charms his supporters and appalls his critics.To his backers, the haircut mirrors his unconventional thinking and personality, which they see as an antidote to a monolithic political order that they blame for economic catastrophe and an erosion of national sovereignty.To his opponents, it demonstrates a buffoonish temperament that is unsuited to public office, and which makes Britain a laughing stock on the international stage.Obvious comparisons have been drawn between Johnson and US President Donald Trump, whose eccentric haircut also become intertwined with his political … [Read more...] about Hair apparent: Boris locks key to political brand

Invest in your hair. It is the crown you never take off.” I saw this sign in a Beauty Salon window. To this day, I have not forgotten those words. I always make an effort to take care of my hair by using healthy hair products and having hair treatments. When friends tell me I have a nice haircut, I feel like I can rule the world. I have been going to Regine’s Beauty Salon at the Link Building for many years. A month ago, I went for a blow dry and the lady who washes my hair all the time warned me that I had falling hair. My hairstylist for years also commented that the front part of my hair was getting thin. I went into panic mode as I have always taken pride in my thick hair. I didn’t take notice that age, chemicals, constant blow dry, putting highlights, lowlights and all kinds of haircolor are disastrous to hair health and factored in my hair loss. I did some research on how to restore hair growth without having … [Read more...] about Rx for thinning hair

Especially on hair wash days. But thanks to dry shampoo, we too can sleep in and be “low-maintenance,” at least for a few days a week. It’s freaking equality in a can. But, alas, that equality is under attack. Rumours are swirling that the grease-nixing stuff could actually be bad for our hair, even leading to thinning and shedding. Code Red, my friends.
