Uncharacteristic losing skid in All-Filipino Cup lights a fire under San Miguel

Inquirer Breaking News - Thu, 02/07/2019 - 00:33
MANILA, Philippines---San Miguel getting into a two-game slide in the PBA Philippine Cup is practically unheard of. Since Leo Austria took over as the Beermen's head coach at the start of the 2014-15 season, the most successful franchise in PBA history accumulated just eight total losses in the elimination round of league's first conference. And in those four Philippine Cups, none featured the Beermen losing two straight games until the 2019 edition when they started off 2-3. The defeats to Rain or Shine and TNT pushed San Miguel into unfamiliar territory. San Miguel, however, was able to break the slump with a resounding 93-79 win over Blackwater thanks to no small part ...

Economic cluster calls for greater focus on agri

Inquirer Breaking News - Thu, 02/07/2019 - 00:16
Economic managers are calling on the Department of Agriculture (DA) to boost the farm sector's performance as the administration continued to work on tempering inflation, noting that the industry "needs greater attention now more than ever" if the government wants to boost economic growth. The call was made in a statement released by the government's economic cluster after the report on the January inflation rate came out. Inflation on the first month of the year hit 4.4 percent, the slowest in 10 months, thanks to slower rise in the prices of food and nonalcoholic beverages and the continued improvement in the supply of food, particularly rice, corn and fish.

‘Queer Eye’

Inquirer Breaking News - Thu, 02/07/2019 - 00:10
  Over the course of my recovery and recuperation, I've had the time to start binge-watching a lot of shows that I've only heard about from my friends---documentaries, Korean dramas (thanks to my mom, who loves them), and other series and films that I've placed on a "must-watch" list. However, there was one series that, once I started, became impossible to stop. This is the Emmy-winning "Queer Eye" on Netflix. This isn't the first iteration of this fun and fabulous television series. "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy" (the original title) was a series starring Carson Kressley (fashion), Thom Filicia (interior design), Kyan Douglas (grooming), Ted Allen (food and wine) and...
