Inquirer Breaking News - 7 hours 34 min ago
        MINNEAPOLIS - Former Minneapolis policeman Derek Chauvin on Thursday waived his right to testify to the jury about his part in the deadly arrest last May of George Floyd as both sides rested their cases at his murder trial, the most high-profile police misconduct case in decades. "I will invoke my Fifth Amendment privilege today," Chauvin, 45, said in a hearing before the jury was brought in on Thursday morning after briefly removing his mask, referring to the constitutional right against self-incrimination. They were his most extensive remarks since his trial began with jury selection on March 8. The defense told Hennepin County District...

Cooking for health and well-being

Inquirer Breaking News - 8 hours 52 min ago
  When I got married and eventually became a mother at 27, I didn't hesitate to give up my corporate career to focus on raising my family. So, for the next 20 years, I was a full-time housewife and hands-on mom to two beautiful girls. My days were mostly spent on managing the house, checking up on my daughters' schoolwork and cooking. At that time, cooking was a chore that I had to complete as part of my daily task and not as a creative outlet or activity that I looked forward to doing. When my girls got older and went abroad to study, I got to try different dishes and cuisines with them. We would eat anywhere and everywhere that served good food. I came to miss the ...

Bored from being locked down at home, the actor-restaurateur took to baking, something he admitted to being initially intimidated by.

First jab: Step-by-step guide

Inquirer Breaking News - 9 hours 6 min ago
  If, like many I know, you want to get vaccinated for COVID-19 but don't know where to get started, here's a step-by-step guide based on my experience. What I'm sharing here are basic things to remember, since some steps may vary depending on your local government unit (LGU). As a person with comorbidities, I also took proactive measures by buying privately my doses of Moderna vaccine, which are supposed to arrive by the second quarter of 2021. With the recent surge in infections, however, I decided I couldn't wait much longer to get some amount of protection from the virus. "The best vaccine at this point is what is available," my onco-surgeon told me via email when I...

To visit or not to visit a pedia dentist now

Inquirer Breaking News - 9 hours 34 min ago
  Your child missed a dental appointment because of the pandemic? Don't beat yourself up too much. Pediatric dentist Ryan de Guzman says that a visit can be skipped if the child is at low risk of having tooth decay. He describes what it means to be low-risk: If a child has good oral hygiene and its caregivers are in control of his/her diet. Parents know that sugar and junk food are bad for kids. But he added that bottle-feeding a child at sleep time can be just as problematic. "(Some) milk contains the same amount of sugar as soft drinks. Home-prepared whole food will always be the best for our health and oral health," he said. Consumption of formula milk beyond 2 ye...

Security experts say PH should focus naval, air force buildup on protecting West PH Sea

Inquirer Breaking News - 10 hours 27 min ago
MANILA, Philippines---The Philippines should build up naval and air force capability against China's aggression in the West Philippine Sea, according to security experts.   The Philippines, a maritime nation with one of the world's longest coastlines, has one of the weakest armed forces in the region. The military is constantly trying to upgrade its systems and hardware in the face of a wide range of security challenges. But efforts to upgrade, already at a slow pace, had been further delayed by the pandemic with funds for new weapons, assets and materiel being diverted to COVID-19 response.   "The Philippines should develop credible defense capability by focusing i...

Angelica Panganiban takes a bow to ‘teleserye’ work tonight in ‘Walang Hanggang Paalam’ finale

Inquirer Breaking News - 10 hours 35 min ago
  I didn't decide on it overnight. I didn't just want to create buzz. There were circumstances that led to that decision," said Angelica Panganiban, who recently announced that the action-drama series "Walang Hanggang Paalam" would be her last teleserye ever. "Of course I had to consider a lot of things before I arrived at that decision. Prior to that, I told myself that I was happy if 'Playhouse' (the family-oriented series she did with Zanjoe Marudo and Carlo Aquino in 2018) would be my last. It had a successful run. I had wanted to leave it at that, but the pandemic happened. Who am I to say 'no' to work, when a lot of people are suffering because they lost theirs?" ...
