Inquirer Breaking News - Fri, 04/29/2022 - 06:37
    SEOUL - North Korean leader Kim Jong Un called on the country's military to "bolster up their strength in every way to annihilate the enemy", state media reported on Friday, as new satellite imagery showed increased preparations for a possible nuclear test.

Cereal killer: Food giant questions obesity strategy

Inquirer Breaking News - Fri, 04/29/2022 - 05:48
LONDON --- Cereals giant Kellogg's said Wednesday it had launched a legal challenge against new rules that will limit the prominence of sugary foods in English shops as part of a new campaign against obesity. The government's strategy only calculated the fat, salt and sugar content of cereals when eaten dry, not when taken with milk, the US company said in a statement announcing the judicial review. "We've tried to have a reasonable conversation with the UK government over the past 12 months about making this change, but to no avail," Kellogg's UK managing director Chris Silcock said.

Biggest BPO braces for tax break loss

Inquirer Breaking News - Fri, 04/29/2022 - 05:40
MANILA, Philippines --- On the day the government ordered business process outsourcing (BPO) firms to report back to the office, the largest of them decided to keep working from home, ready to pay higher taxes than spend more in regular office operations. Concentrix, a BPO firm with a 100,000-strong workforce, has kept a hybrid work setup since 2020. This didn't change, even after the return-to-office mandate took effect on April 1. Most of its workers, or 60 percent of them, have been working from home, while the rest have reported back to the office. Michael Montero, the company's regional general counsel in the Asia and Pacific, said there are practical reasons why the co...

As expected, Ateneo seals No. 1 slot after dismantling FEU

Inquirer Breaking News - Fri, 04/29/2022 - 05:30
Ateneo accomplished a milestone obscured by the way it has dominated the UAAP over the last two seasons. On Thursday, the Blue Eagles neatly wrapped up the No. 1 spot in Season 84's men basketball tournament. Not that anyone was asking---or even wondering. With the way they churned out wins, Ateneo has been likened to an indestructible super machine all season. But Ateneo coach Tab Baldwin reminded everyone that behind that humming efficiency, the Eagles are still a bunch of "young guys who play the game that they love." Not even Far Eastern University's (FEU) 6-1 start to the game at Mall of Asia Arena could forge a sliver of doubt that Ateneo would wind up the top seed hea...

Inquirer Breaking News - Fri, 04/29/2022 - 05:25
  Kai Sotto threw his name in the National Basketball Association (NBA) draft. He faces long odds of getting drafted, but the move nevertheless represents the first step of a highly anticipated journey. "Please pray for and support me during my quest to fulfill my ultimate dream," Sotto wrote on an Instagram entry on Thursday that also served as a tribute to the city of Adelaide, Australia, and its club the 36ers, where the 7-foot-3 center has been playing. His stint with the team in Australia's pro league did nothing to boost his draft stock, but the country's national basketball federation, aside from throwing its support to the 19-year-old talent, continues to keep t...
