Inquirer Breaking News - 8 hours 58 min ago
California is giving childhood victims of sexual abuse more time to decide whether to file lawsuits, joining several states in expanding the statute of limitations for victims over warnings from school districts that the new rules could bankrupt them.

Stop making plans to grab lunch with a friend — just do it

Inquirer Breaking News - 9 hours 19 min ago
During a visit to Manila six years ago, I found out that an old friend and classmate was ill and in the hospital. I still had a few days left and could have visited Andrew. But I didn't. He'll be fine, I thought. I'll see him again on my next visit. But there was no next time. A few weeks after I returned to California, I got a Facebook message from another friend, Clarence: "Sad news. Andrew passed away today." Andrew, Clarence and I had been close friends in our freshman and sophomore years at the Ateneo. As with most high school friendships, we drifted apart through the years. Andrew went to Oregon where he finished high school, went to college before returning to sett...
