Inquirer Breaking News - 15 hours 56 min ago
With a new system under a new coach but minus one vital piece, Petro Gazz hopes to start the Premier Volleyball League (PVL) season the way it ended the last when the Cool Smashers battle the Alyssa Valdez-less Creamline Cool Smashers in the All-Filipino Conference that gets going Saturday at Smart Araneta Coliseum. Oliver Almadro has taken over Petro Gazz, which will be shooting for a followup of a stirring conquest of the Reinforced Conference field last year before coach Rald Ricafort left the squad to lead PLDT. The Angels will also be without Myla Pablo, the veteran who moved to F2, leaving a lot of the scoring load on the shoulders of MJ Philips, Gretchel Soltones and Aiz...

Food inflation still a problem globally, says UN report

Inquirer Breaking News - 18 hours 46 min ago
Food inflation remains a problem for both national governments and households across the world as the factors that caused fast-rising prices last year, such as Russia's invasion of Ukraine, are still influencing the world market, according to the United Nations (UN). In their latest monthly report, the Agricultural Market Information System (Amis) which is administered by the UN's Food and Agriculture Organization, said the decrease in world market prices of staple foods during the second half of 2022 has, at best, slowed domestic food price inflation, which remains stubbornly high in most parts of the world. "Food affordability thus remains a challenge at both the macroeconomi...

PSEi again reclaims 7,000 in dizzying end to the week

Inquirer Breaking News - 18 hours 54 min ago
Philippine stocks ended a roller-coaster of a week in the green on the recovery of property heavyweights such as Megaworld Corp. and SM Prime Holdings.
