Beermen demolish third straight foe, and new coach Gallent excited to see how his squad would stack up in clash with Hotshots

Inquirer Breaking News - 14 hours 7 sec ago
San Miguel Beer on Friday fashioned out a result similar to its two previous games to continue its unbeaten start under new coach Jorge Gallent in the PBA Governors' Cup. Now comes the first difficult phase of Gallent's young tenure starting Sunday against Magnolia. "It's gonna be a tough game [against Magnolia]," Gallent said after the Beermen bucked a slow start to produce a 122-102 humbling of Terrafirma at Ynares Center in Antipolo City. The 20-year rout of the Dyip, who came into the game just a week removed from an upset victory over the Meralco Bolts, mirrored the margin the Beermen produced in walloping the Phoenix Fuel Masters (114-93) and Blackwater Bossing (105-86...

Inquirer Breaking News - 14 hours 20 min ago

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 - 17 hours 10 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 - 17 hours 18 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. The benchmark Philippine Stock Exchange index (PSEi) rose 0.59 percent, or 41.19 points, to 7,027.38 while the broader All Shares index added 0.59 percent, or 21.68 points, to 3,705.46.

Inquirer Breaking News - 18 hours 45 min ago
  WASHINGTON - US Secretary of State Antony Blinken on Friday scrapped a long-planned Beijing trip aimed at easing escalating tensions between the two superpowers, after the Pentagon said that China sent a spy balloon over the United States.
