Inquirer Breaking News - 1 hour 10 min ago
I woke up early this morning and had my morning cup of coffee in our garden. The cool breeze gently reminded me that the holiday season is upon us, and with the merriment that comes with it is the increased risk of developing life-threatening cardiovascular problems. For some families who would be affected, this can transform the season from one of joy and laughter to one of lamentation and grief. So, beware of the so-called "holiday heart syndrome." Various scientific journals have reported a higher incidence of heart attacks and strokes during the Christmas holidays due to excessive fun, which consists of drinking unlimited booze and eating all the "good" stuff (aka high chole...

What are they up to now?   The co-workers at a Filipino TV network in Texas drew the attention of McDonald's, Ellen Degeneres, and various organizations, after they smuggled a poster with their own faces and surreptitiously posted it on a wall in their local McDonald's.

U.S. Customs probing import of stainless steel flanges from PH 

Inquirer Breaking News - 2 hours 58 min ago
WASHINGTON, D.C.--U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is investigating certain imports of stainless steel flanges from the Philippines on "a reasonable suspicion" of evading the payment of antidumping (AD) and countervailing duty (CVD) duties.

As a result of its findings, CBP has imposed interim measures on certain importers of stainless steel flanges from the Philippines, directing that all such imports will be subject to AD/CVD duties. Earlier this year, ...

And while you are at it, put down the bacon and pick up the olive oil, because new research supports the contention that switching to a Mediterranean diet could significantly decrease the risk of heart disease. According to astudypublished Friday in JAMA Network Open, people who followed this type of diet had 25 percent less risk of developing cardiovascular disease over the course of 12 years. The diet's components make sense to anyone who follows nutrition news. Avoid red meat in favor of "good" fats like fish and poultry. Swap out salt for herbs and spices. Ditch butter and margarine and opt for ol...

Inquirer Breaking News - 5 hours 12 min ago
