Inquirer Breaking News - Thu, 01/03/2019 - 17:39
MANILA, Philippines --- The budget department has issued guidelines on the release of funds for key state expenses to mitigate the impact of a reenacted budget on the country's economic growth.

Broadway hits Iran with unique take on ‘Les Misérables’

Inquirer Breaking News - Thu, 01/03/2019 - 17:35
Iranian theatre director Hossein Parsaee calls Victor Hugo's classic a "masterpiece without borders" but his groundbreaking production of "Les Misrables" that has hit the stage in Tehran has a few unique twists. For a start, none of the actresses are allowed to reveal their own hair, and in case their wigs look too natural, the poster advertising the show carries a bright red notice underscoring that their locks are fake. Nor do the actors and actresses touch hands, or have any other physical contact throughout the musical. This is, after all, the capital of the Islamic republic, even if the blockbuster show in the luxurious Espinas Hotel feels a world away from the usual stere...

International stars leaving mark on NBA

Inquirer Breaking News - Thu, 01/03/2019 - 16:57
Go back to the 1999-2000 NBA season, and there were only two foreign-born players in the NBA who averaged 15 points per game: Dirk Nowitzki and Tim Duncan.
