Recession coming? Trump insists U.S. economy ‘very strong’
WASHINGTON --- The "fundamentals" of the U.S. economy are solid, the White House asserted, invoking an ill-fated political declaration of a decade ago amid mounting concern that a recession could imperil President Donald Trump's reelection. Exhibiting no such concern, senior adviser Kellyanne Conway declared to reporters on Monday, "The fact is, the fundamentals of our economy are very strong." It's a phrase with a history. Republican John McCain was accused of being out of touch when he made a similar declaration during the 2008 presidential campaign just hours before investment bank Lehman Brothers filed for bankruptcy, setting off a stock market crash and global financial...Keep on reading: Recession coming?

Beermen bosses’ simple wish: A San Miguel Grand Slam
MANILA, Philippines--San Miguel Beer is far from satisfied despite winning its second straight PBA title this season. Sure, winning the Philippine Cup title for an unprecedented fifth consecutive time was quite an achievement and becoming the lowest-seeded squad to claim the Commissioner's Cup championship at the expense of the top-ranked team was impressive as well. But there's nothing like winning a Grand Slam and San Miguel's top officials have made it clear that they want no less than the cherry on top to end the season. "I would just like to remind a simple wish of mine: A Grand Slam," said Bobby Huang, president of San Miguel Brewery, in Filipino during the team's vict...Keep on reading: Beermen bosses’ simple wish: A San Miguel Grand Slam
