Breaking News - 6 hours 27 min ago
          PARIS---Chinese people fleeing Ebola, angry Africans, understaffed flight crew, rumors and fears: the Air France flight from Freetown to Paris seemed to encapsulate the global panic in the face of the Ebola outbreak.   Anecdotes swirl around the cabin: apparently the same flight a few days ago carried three ill children, one with fever, two with diarrhea. Could be Ebola, could be harmless childhood sickness, who knows? In any case, as the story goes, passengers asked to move seats.   And it's not just the passengers who are fearful. The crew is short-staffed because employees are not exactly beating down the door...

Limpag: Should we stop kids from joining MMA events?

Cebu Headlines - 6 hours 56 min ago

WHEN I learned that a couple of kids would be involved in the Cebu Extreme Fighting League, I knew there was going to be a reaction.

You have to face it—whether you advocate martial arts and other contact sports for kids or not—some people are not comfortable seeing kids fight. There’s even a pending proposal in Congress to ban all contact sports among children after a budding boxer died in a Department of Education meet last year.

China’s nine-dash line came ahead of Unclos, says expert

Breaking News - 9 hours 5 min ago
MANILA, Philippines -- A Chinese scholar claimed that China has a more solid hold on the South China Sea because its nine-dash line claim over nearly 90 percent of the area has existed before the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (Unclos). "The Nine-dash line had existed for nearly half a century ahead of Unclos, you have no reason to ask the Nine-dash Line to conform to a later convention," Wu Shicun, president of National Institute for South China Sea Studies, said in a video report of state-run China Central Television (CCTV) Friday. "A basic principle of international law is non-retroactivity. Today's law cannot overwrite existing facts of the past," Wu said. ...

Napoles lawyer on NGO ‘offices’: What’s wrong with houses, garages?

Breaking News - 9 hours 29 min ago
MANILA, Philippines -- There is nothing wrong with housing non-government organizations (NGOs) for poor farmers in residential houses and garages, according to lawyer of detained businesswoman Janet Lim-Napoles. In an interview, Stephen David said what would be problematic is if these foundations that were linked to Napoles were housed in posh condominium units. He said this would defeat the purpose of helping marginalized members of society like farmers. David is reacting to Commission on Audit (COA) assistant commissioner Susan Garcia's claims during Napoles' bail hearing on Friday when she said that the foundations linked to Napoles were housed in bogus locations such as ...
