I attended their first concert here in the Philippines several years ago in an open field at The Fort. And I couldn't help but cry while I watched them sing," she said at a recent press conference for "Boyz II Men with Divas," an upcoming back-to-back concert, which will also feature Yeng Constantino, Angeline Quinto and KZ Tandingan.   Kyla, who herself made a name in the country...

The year 2018 continues to be a big year for Josh Brolin. The actor starred in two hit superhero movies, first as bervillain Thanos in "Avengers: Infinity War" and, barely a month later, as the antihero Cable in "Deadpool 2."   But it got even better early last month, when he and his wife Kathryn welcomed baby daughter Westlyn Reign, nicknamed Bean, whom Brolin described in an Instagram video as "a flawless gem through and through."   More recently, he posted a photo of Bean sleeping. Part of his caption said, "The baby is asleep, but I am not. She trusts me cradling her as she securely floats in dream and makes the sounds of a [filly] foal romping through what ...

Quirky superhero drama ‘Umbrella Academy’ debuts kooky trailer

Inquirer Breaking News - Mon, 12/10/2018 - 23:00
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LMeqY7ogdF8 Most people probably know Gerard Way as the lead singer of the band My Chemical Romance, but Way has already carved his way into the comic book world he loves so much. He ran his own very distinctive imprint at DC Comics called Young Animal (among others, it published the new "Doom Patrol ," which Way also wrote). But Way's big comic debut happened over at Dark Horse Comics in 2007 when he wrote and created "The Umbrella Academy" together with artist Gabriel Ba. This series took a quirky look at superhero families, with a decidedly dysfunctional Hargreeves family (seven super-powered survivors of a mysterious killing event, each with thei...

But there were doubts the happy ending at Santiago Bernabeu Stadium would prompt many changes after one of the greatest debacles in South American soccer history. "To be honest, sometimes it seems like we are incapable of learning," Boca Juniors coach Guillermo Barros Schelotto said.

Sereno to Filipinos: Unite in prayer vs ‘so much injustice’

Inquirer Breaking News - Mon, 12/10/2018 - 22:54
MANILA, Philippines --- Ousted Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno urged Filipinos to be united in prayer with the country still faced with "so much injustice." "When the very weapons that taxpayers money purchase for the armed forces and the police are being turned by government against the people, when the intelligence funds of government are used to hound dissent and oppress political enemies, when corruption funds the campaigns of plunderers who are allowed to go free by an unreasoned court decision, then the people must turn to God, and call out for help amidst such despair," Sereno said at the "Our Declaration of Rights" forum in Baguio City on Monday. The forum is in comm...

Sarri uses Napoli formula to ignite Chelsea’s title bid

Inquirer Breaking News - Mon, 12/10/2018 - 22:52
A midseason tactical switch sparked Chelsea's surge to the Premier League title two years ago under Antonio Conte. Could the same happen under his successor this season? For the first time in his debut season at Chelsea, Maurizio Sarri deployed a lineup without a genuine striker for the match against Manchester City on Saturday. The result? A 2-0 win over the previously unbeaten leaders that brought Chelsea back into contention for the title. Sarri has previous experience here. At Napoli, he used diminutive winger Dries Mertens as a makeshift center forward, flanked by two small guys in Lorenzo Insigne and Jose Callejon in a fluid, mobile front three. Mertens responded wi...

Inquirer Breaking News - Mon, 12/10/2018 - 22:47
So much changed after Kawhi Leonard crashed to the Oracle Arena floor on May 14, 2017. The San Antonio Spurs had a 23-point lead on the Warriors in Game 1 of the Western Conference finals when Leonard departed with 26 points, poised to take away home-court advantage in the series between teams who won more than 60 games. Leonard injured his ankle when he landed on Zaza Pachulia's foot after taking a jump shot, and things were never the same again for the Spurs or Leonard. The Spurs couldn't hold on to win that game or any other in the series without their All-Star forward, whose ankle injury would be followed by a lingering thigh injury that would limit him to just nine games t...

Ari Grimes lifted up his football helmet as if it were a pom pom, pretending to join the cheerleaders. "Cowboys in the house! Yell RMS!"
