Releasing the majority of the results in the middle of the night and not being able to explain the problems with the server? The 90% results being almost exactly the same as the 0.4% results? No progression of votes at all? This election is a joke. They dumped all of the votes basically at the same time, preventing any sort of deeper granular analysis and obfuscating vote progression over time. Basically, no one district is exactly the same. We should have seen some movement over time, based on unique district profiles. Dumping all at once obscures any attempts to assess questionable trending or voting blocs in real time. I find it amusing that the percentage of votes almost precisely aligns from 0.4% reported and 97% reported...

President Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr. on Monday declined the conditions set by Kingdom of Jesus Christ leader Pastor Apollo Quiboloy for his surrender in connection with his child abuse cases. “It seems to me a little bit tail wagging the dog, ang tawag na siyang magbibigay ng kondisyon sa gobyerno doon sa kaso niya, akusado siya sa warrant of arrest,” Marcos told reporters in an interview in Bacolod City. However, the President assured Quiboloy that the proceedings on his case would be fair. “To Pastor Quiboloy, we’ve known him for a very long time. Ang maipapangako ko, all the proceedings will be fair. Now, as to the involvement of the United States, malayo pa ‘yan eh. That’s going to take years, yet. So, I don’t think that’s something...
Davao court has issued a warrant of arrest against Kingdom of Jesus Christ leader Apollo Quiboloy and five others over charges of child abuse. In a 2-page order, the court said reasonable time has lapsed and it has not yet received a resolution on the motion for reconsideration filed by Quiboloy’s camp before the Department of Justice on the arrest warrant it issued in March. “The court mindful of the equally situated rights of both the prosecution and defense, which may include among others, the speedy disposition and speedy trial of cases, either of which or both, said right imposes an imperative task that this court is indebted to fulfill,” the Court said. “[A]s what was earlier determined upon judicious examination and perusal of...

John doesn’t smoke and rarely drinks *******. His main advice for staying healthy is to practice moderation: “If you drink too much or you eat too much or you walk too much; if you do too much of anything, you’re going to suffer eventually,” he said.

Article by Manila Times As a traveler for over 30 years, I have witnessed significant improvements in travel infrastructures and experiences in the last two decades. Traveling was not easy before. You had to rely on travel books and maps to learn more about your destinations. Hotel bookings were made through telephone calls, and down payments were made via bank transfers. Driving to your destination was quite a hassle. Many roads were narrow and often congested with traffic. Expressways were limited, and finding restrooms and meal stops was always a challenge. There are many things we now enjoy when traveling that did not exist 20 years ago. To celebrate Fast Times 15th Anniversary, here are 15 of those improvements that make road...
