Inquirer Breaking News - Sun, 02/09/2020 - 00:10
Justin Bieber does not tire of proclaiming his love for wife Hailey Baldwin. "I don't post anything, or to try and make people believe I love my wife. I simply think it's an honoring thing to do, publicly acknowledging your significant other! It's like we're all okay with acknowledging an achievement or award, but think there has to be something shady about saying something publicly about the one you love.

I've done a lot of cool things but I don't think anything comes close to as cool as that," he said on Instagram. The ...

Inquirer Breaking News - Sat, 02/08/2020 - 19:59
  DAVAO CITY--Agriculture officials are looking into the possibility that contaminated meat from Indonesia could have found their way to Mindanao and caused the outbreak of African swine fever (ASF) among pigs here. Agriculture Secretary William Dar said the practice of swilling and the possibility that pork,including canned goods, from Indonesia had entered Mindanao could have caused the ASF outbreak first detected in Marcelino town in Davao Occidental. "Although we are considering other factors, the likelihood that pork meat from Indonesia could have entered Mindanao and found their way to kitchen wastes and on to the hogs was much closer," said Agriculture Undersecre...

But the UFC light heavyweight champion knows that he can't underestimate Reyes on Saturday night when they meet in the main event of UFC 247.

They took a deep dive into the analytics. And they came to a determination. "He's elite," Heat President Pat Riley said. Simple as that. That's why Iguodala is now in Heat colors, and a team that wasn't even good enough to make the playoffs last season is thinking big as it gears up for a run at the 2020 postseason.

Inquirer Breaking News - Sat, 02/08/2020 - 19:40
SAN FRANCISCO --- In Brooklyn a couple of days back, Bob Myers realized something he has rarely seen as Golden State's general manager or even dating to his days as a busy sports agent: Nobody wanted to be traded from the NBA's worst team. "That's unprecedented," Myers said Friday after dealing much of the Warriors roster this week. Golden State dealt D'Angelo Russell, Jacob Evans III and Omari Spellman to the Minnesota Timberwolves ahead of Thursday's trade deadline for Andrew Wiggins and draft picks --- Minneosta's first-rounder and second-rounder in 2021, unless the first-rounder is in the top three and then it would roll over to 2022. It was "somber" as Myers put it afte...
