Inquirer Breaking News - Sun, 02/03/2019 - 03:11
  In a post-TRAIN law economy, a P249 12-inch pepperoni pizza seems too good to be true. So, when pizza chain Little Caesars Pizza announced its comeback---with affordable pepperoni as one of its major selling points---a lot of people were skeptical about the quality of the food.   But price is not directly proportional to taste. Last Jan. 26, Little Caesars reopened its doors in Manila to serve its famous HOT-N-READY pizzas. The classic Pepperoni is served fresh from the oven oozing Muenster cheese and fresh, never frozen, mozzarella cheese.

Inquirer Breaking News - Sun, 02/03/2019 - 03:05
  Some musicians can only aspire to be rock stars, but Pepe? He was born to be one. His life was the stuff of legends: learned to play drums when he was around 9 years old; started his first band when he was only 11; gigged locally and around Asia pounding the skins for other groups before joining Juan dela Cruz Band in 1970; and eventually, being hailed as the King of Pinoy Rock.   So many bands have been described as "seminal" over the years, it's become hard to determine which among them really is. But in the case of Juan dela Cruz Band, the word seems to have been put to good use.   Some will beg to disagree. This wasn't the first bunch of young Fili...

Fifteen years after its founding, Facebook has made strides toward Mark Zuckerberg's goal of connecting the world. But it has also made some huge missteps that have turned some of its cheerleaders into vocal detractors.
