Latvia to remain Russia’s critic as prime minister wins election

Inquirer Breaking News - Sun, 10/02/2022 - 16:48
  RIGA -- The center-right New Unity party of Latvian Prime Minister Krisjanis Karins won Saturday's election, according to provisional results, with its 19% of the vote putting him in a position to head another coalition government. The results - with 96% of districts counted - mean Latvia should remain a leading voice alongside its Baltic neighbors Lithuania and Estonia in pushing the European Union for a decisive stance against Russia. Karins' party was again the party with the most support following the election. Members of the current coalition were on track to receive 42 seats in the 100-seat parliament, so Karins needs to draft additional allies to stay as a prim...

Inquirer Breaking News - Sun, 10/02/2022 - 16:20
Erik ten Hag praised Erling Haaland's goalscoring instincts but stressed that Manchester United will not focus solely on the Norwegian striker when they take on Manchester City in a Premier League derby clash. Later on Sunday, United will have the formidable task of containing Haaland, who has made a blistering start to his City career with 11 league goals in seven games since arriving from Borussia Dortmund in the close season. When asked if he had discussed Haaland with the striker's former Dortmund teammate Jadon Sancho, who now plays for United, Ten Hag told reporters, "of course when you have a player who played in the past with a player, you ask him."

Lewis Hamilton will be allowed to keep wearing his nose stud at the Singapore Grand Prix for medical reasons, but his team was fined 25,000 euros ($24,500) on Sunday for failing to notify stewards.

"In recent events, Hamilton had removed the piercing prior to the competition. The team assumed, without enquiring of Hamilton, that he had followed or would follow the same procedure for this event," said the FIA stewards in their ruling. "The stewards accept that the e...

Inquirer Breaking News - Sun, 10/02/2022 - 16:06

Inquirer Breaking News - Sun, 10/02/2022 - 15:33
MANILA, Philippines---National University-Sta. Elena may have ruled the 2022 Spikers' Turf Open Conference after dethroning the top men's volleyball club, Cignal. But team captain Joshua Retamar believes the best is yet to come for their young squad. The league's Best Setter said the young Nationals haven't shown their full potential yet even after a masterful performance in a club league, where they only lost one game in the elimination round. "I think the team is still at 60 percent because we still have a lot to learn, especially in service, and we still have a lot of lapses when it comes to blocking," said Retamar in Filipino shortly after dethroning Cignal, 25-18, 23-25, 2...

Inquirer Breaking News - Sun, 10/02/2022 - 15:23
