Inquirer Breaking News - 15 hours 17 min ago
    Renaming Facebook Inc is unlikely to enable the tech giant to distance itself from regulatory and public scrutiny around the potential harms caused by its social media apps, marketing and branding experts told Reuters.

Inquirer Breaking News - 15 hours 46 min ago
  WASHINGTON - The United States sees the decision by Southeast Asian nations to exclude Myanmar's leader from a regional summit as very significant but more needs to be done to address the challenges the country is facing after the military coup there, a senior U.S. official said on Wednesday.
