Inquirer Breaking News - Mon, 04/19/2021 - 23:22

It's just a temporary measure to bring down the prices," said Duterte in his address to the nation on Monday.

Inquirer Breaking News - Mon, 04/19/2021 - 23:22
MANILA, Philippines --- Agriculture Secretary William Dar denied on Monday the allegation that the proposal of his department to lower the tariff rates on imported pork and increase its volume was based on "exaggerated" projections.

Actually, it seems appropriate for Filipinos to hear their music now as the country appears lost on how to solve the pandemic and other political problems. Inside the 12-track album released last April 9 (Araw ng Kagitingan), only one or two songs bear a resemblance to the Dicta License of old, which has been compared with progressive rock band Rage Against the Machine. But the messaging --- something that...
