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

Inquirer Breaking News - 11 hours 3 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 - 11 hours 12 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?" ...

Inquirer Breaking News - 11 hours 14 min ago
      World number one Novak Djokovic crashed out in the third round of the Monte Carlo Masters following a 6-4 7-5 defeat by Britain's Dan Evans on Thursday. The 30-year-old Evans emerged triumphant in the pair's first meeting to end the Serb's perfect 10-0 start in 2021. Djokovic struggled to find any kind of rhythm on a windy day at the ATP Masters 1000 event and committed 45 unforced errors during the two sets, more than double of Evans. "It hasn't sunk in yet," Evans said in his courtside interview. "I couldn't quite believe the last ball went over the net. It nearly didn't. "I was pleased, regardless, with how I was playing coming into the ma...

Visiting a pedia eye doctor? What to expect

Inquirer Breaking News - Thu, 04/15/2021 - 23:41
  My 10-year-old son Jack has been wearing prescription eyeglasses since he was 5, and so I have been bringing him and his younger sister Juno to an eye doctor annually. Having had a year of online distance learning (ODL) and yet another year of ODL to go means more screen exposure for the kids, so I set an appointment with the only pediatric ophthalmologist in our area.

The kids' eyes get scanned by a machine, then the doctor has them dictate what they see projected on a screen. When Juno was still too young to r...
