Inquirer Breaking News - Fri, 12/13/2019 - 16:59
California residents were shocked to find thousands of sausage-like creatures cover a beach after a storm. Little did they know that the species of spoonworm had been just beneath their feet all along. The phallic worm is better known as, well, penis fish. For those who would rather not make mention of genitalia, it is also called fat innkeeper worm. The marine worm makes U-shaped burrows in a beach or mudflat, leaving most beachgoers unaware of their existence. However, a storm that hit Drakes Beach in California last Dec. 6 washed away sand and revealed the penis fish, reported Bay Nature on Tuesday, Dec. 10.

Charter change not Senate priority, says Sotto

Inquirer Breaking News - Fri, 12/13/2019 - 15:42
MANILA, Philippines --- Charter change is not a priority, at least in the Senate, Senate President Vicente Sotto III said Friday. "I cannot give an intelligent assessment until I know what they are talking about. There is none in our priorities to that effect," Sotto told reporters in a message. Sotto was referring to the somewhat hush-hush passage of a House resolution proposing amendments to the 1987 Constitution. "Even the term they are using like 'resolution of both houses of Congress' is not clear to me. Why? Because that term is merely a definition of either a Joint reso, a Concurrent reso or a simple resolution. So what is it?" he said. The House constitution...
