Inquirer Breaking News - 46 min 33 sec ago
ANTIPOLO CITY --- Jonathon Simmons gave NLEX quite the parting gift on Saturday, leading the Road Warriors to a 98-94 conquest of Phoenix and helping the club stay perfect in the young Governors' Cup. The NBA veteran, who is set to backstop a Chinese pro club, dropped 38 points and seven rebounds, and five assists in his farewell game that greased NLEX's march to the top of the standings where it joins 4-0 Converge. "This guy knows how to win games, and I think I'll miss that. And he's nice to be with," coach Frankie Lim said in the post-game chat at Ynares Center here, still in awe with the American's performance. "We just try to be consistent.

Inquirer Breaking News - 1 hour 5 min ago
LOS ANGELES, United States---There is no clear frontrunner for this year's prestigious Grammy for Best New Artist, but Brazil's Anitta definitely has a strong chance to win---which would be the perfect way to cap her banner year.

But while Gilberto---the ex-wife of fellow bossa nova pioneer Joao Gilberto---won Record of the Year with Stan Getz for that hit, the prize for Best New Artist eluded her when she lost out to The Beatles. Now Anitta hopes to snag the award at this Sunday's ceremony, bringing the moment full circle. The ...

Snakes have clitorises, scientists say, slamming gender bias in animal research

Inquirer Breaking News - 4 hours 9 min ago
Female snakes have clitorises, according to the first detailed study on the subject Wednesday, in which the scientists lashed out at how little female sex organs have been researched compared to males across species. Previous research had hypothesized that the organs on female snakes were scent glands, under-developed versions of penises, or were even there to stimulate males, rather than the other way around. But the new study said it has "definitively" ruled out such theories, offering the first complete description of snake clitorises. The findings suggest that clitorises may be common across squamates, the largest order of reptiles which includes snakes, and could play a...
