  MENLO PARK, California --- Nowadays, people often complain about how toxic social media and the internet, in general, can be. But not if you know where to go. Take for example "Subtle Asian Traits," a Facebook group created last September 2018 by nine Chinese-Australian students from Melbourne, Australia who only wanted to have a good laugh and clean fun sharing memes about how it is being an Asian growing up in a western country. "My sister came up with the idea (to create a Facebook group) and I pitched it to my friends and we were like 'Oh, it's such a great idea, let's start it,'" 18-year-old Kerry Kang told a group of journalists from Southeast Asia at the sidelines of...

A lottery winner in Detroit, United States was ordered by the court to share his $30 million cash prize (over P1.5 billion) with his ex-wife.

Joint boat-ramming probe virtual surrender of Recto Bank ownership – Lacson

Inquirer Breaking News - Sun, 06/23/2019 - 17:30
  MANILA, Philippines - Senator Panfilo Lacson on Sunday said that a joint Philippines -- China investigation of a Chinese vessel's ramming of a fishing boat manned by Filipinos may be tantamount to the Philippines waiving its right of ownership of Recto Bank in the West Philippine Sea.   "The 2016 Hague ruling expressly states that Recto Bank is part of the Philippines' 200-nautical mile Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ), and therefore cannot be claimed by China. Having said that, allowing a joint investigation with China and a third party may be interpreted as a waiver of our right of ownership of Recto Bank," Lacson said in a statement after President Rodrigo Duterte ac...

Inquirer Breaking News - Sun, 06/23/2019 - 17:04
Larry Bird's place in NBA history stretches from the record book to the rule book. A Hall of Fame player later became a successful coach and team executive. Along the way, he watched free agency transform from something rarely discussed to practically a year-round conversation --- with his own name one of the talking points --- and the 3-point shot go from afterthought to essential. He will receive a Lifetime Achievement Award during the NBA Awards on Monday along with Magic Johnson, his rival-turned-friend with whom he competed in some of the most important events --- they were bigger than just games --- in basketball history. Their meeting in the 1979 NCAA championship gam...
