LOS ANGELES, United States---Smokey Robinson and Berry Gordy, the visionary creative duo behind the revolutionary Motown genre, saw their legacy play out onstage Friday, Feb. 3, at a pre-Grammy gala honoring their life's work. From Robinson's "The Tracks of My Tears" to "My Girl" songs, Motown defined the 1960s and influenced scores of artists that followed. Gordy's now iconic Motown Records, which the 93-year-old founded in Detroit in 1959, also played a pivotal role in uniting Black and white music fans in a decade convulsed by racial divisions. Robinson was only 17 years old when he was recruited to join the label, where the balladeer became a prolific songwriter and semi...

Inquirer Breaking News - 4 hours 12 min ago
TOKYO, Japan --- Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida dismissed one of his secretaries on Saturday over homophobic comments that the premier called "outrageous." Kishida said the remarks by Masayoshi Arai -- in which he said he "doesn't even want to look at" married same-sex couples -- were "outrageous" and "incompatible" with an inclusive society the government is aiming for. "I made the decision to relieve him of his position as secretary," Kishida told reporters. On Friday, Arai said he "wouldn't like it if they lived next door" and that people would "abandon the country if we allow same-sex marriage", according to public broadcaster NHK.

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

Inquirer Breaking News - 5 hours 10 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...

PBA: Jojo Lastimosa challenges TNT import Jalen Hudson to get more assists

Inquirer Breaking News - 5 hours 51 min ago
MANILA, Philippines---Jalen Hudson has been doing a little bit of everything for TNT in the PBA Governors' Cup. But as far as Jojo Lastimosa is concerned, Hudson is capable of doing much more especially with his playmaking. "My challenge with Jalen today is that he has to have at least 10 assists in this game," Lastimosa said after 93-85 win over Magnolia on Friday at Ynares Center in Antipolo. "Because if your assist ratio is high, it means that the other guys are going to be wide open because you have lots of opportunities to get some assists because the ball is in his hands the whole time," Lastimosa said. "I don't know how many assists did Jalen have today. Five only? Ok...
