Inquirer Breaking News - 3 hours 16 min ago
Landing a top A-lister should be welcome news for any movie, but "Being the Ricardos" producers faced a furious backlash when Nicole Kidman was unveiled as the star who would play legendary comedian Lucille Ball. Fans of the seminal 1950s sitcom "I Love Lucy" railed against the Australian Oscar-winner's casting as the United States national treasure with such venom that Ball's daughter even posted a video imploring them to "stop arguing." "'She doesn't look like her.' 'Her nose isn't the same.' 'She isn't as funny.' Blah blah blah blah blah," said Lucie Arnaz in January. "Just trust us. It's going to be a nice film." Kidman and director Aaron Sorkin stuck to their guns, and ...

Inquirer Breaking News - 3 hours 25 min ago
  HONG KONG - Asian stocks made broad gains in early Thursday trade, following another strong lead from Wall Street as Omicron coronavirus variant fears lessened. In Hong Kong, the Hang Seng Index was up 1.02 percent, though Tokyo dipped into negative territory.

Inquirer Breaking News - 4 hours 7 min ago
WASHINGTON --- The US House of Representatives passed legislation on Wednesday to ban imports from China's Xinjiang region over concerns about forced labor, one of three measures backed overwhelmingly as Washington continues its pushback against Beijing's treatment of its Uyghur Muslim minority.

The Uyghur measure would create a "rebuttable presumption" that all goods from Xinjiang, where the Chinese government has set up a vast network of detention camps for Uyghurs and other Muslim groups, were made with forced l...
