Paulo mines past relationships for latest romantic drama
  It isn't hard to like Paulo Avelino beyond his dashing good looks and playful social media-savvy quips. The last time we saw the actor at the story con for his upcoming film "If We Don't Make It," he said it took him a while to realize there was more to show biz than fame and fortune. "Hindi ako nagmamalinis. Nakakabulag din talaga ang stardom, especially when you're just starting out and you hear people screaming your name for attention," the 31-year-old actor admits. "But as you get older and gain more experience, you realize that even your followers change. Like me, they eventually looked for something new."

3rd Avenue goes beyond the wedding scene in 15th anniversary concert
  When 3rd Avenue entered the music scene 15 years ago, its members aspired for mainstream success and envisioned their group having a career similar to that of bands like South Border. But things didn't quite pan out that way. Despite having released albums and songs, the band, by a twist of fate, found itself dominating the lucrative wedding circuit, performing for such high profile unions as Carmina Villaroel and Zoren Legaspi's and Heart Evangelista and Chiz Escudero's. Still, the initial dream lives on. While 3rd Avenue has built a reputation as one of the most sought-after groups in that niche market, the 14-piece musical ensemble feels that it's about time that t...Keep on reading: 3rd Avenue goes beyond the wedding scene in 15th anniversary concert

The two actors were later on revealed to be Maxine Medina---a cousin of Dianne's---and Kylie Verzosa. Is there really animosity between the two beauty queens?

"It was truly a miracle that he survived a four-day ruptured appendix," recalled Jon's mother, the Philippine-born Grace Sideco Wong. Grace arrived in the U.S. in 1981 and worked as a pediatric nurse after earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing from Rutgers University.

In documenting family stories and memories, she chose to engage more with the content instead of just passively recording them.

Protecting the ‘Employee’ status of California gig economy workers
Uber, Lyft, and DoorDash are companies that use the latest communications technology to create new business models which do away with traditional employer-employee relationship. These companies tap into the practice of "outsourcing" or "crowdsourcing" and obtain services directly from the general public, rather than from traditional employees. They are some of the most visible leaders in the "on-demand economy" or "gig economy."   They have also been sued by their workers for "misclassification" as independent contractors (ICs"). By not being treated as employees, the workers are denied the rights and protections provided under our employment laws.   It is impor...Keep on reading: Protecting the ‘Employee’ status of California gig economy workers

It will be empowered to make binding rulings on whether posts or ads violate the company's standards. Any other findings it makes will be considered "guidance" by Facebook.

They've been talking ever since about films, life and working together. But it would take almost 25 years for the stars to finally align, fittingly, for an ambitious, original space odyssey called "Ad Astra" that opens in theaters nationwide Friday.   "It's a gutsy film," Pitt said last month. The 55-year-old both produced and stars in the story about an astronaut who ventures almost entirely alone into the outer reaches of space to investigate a disturbance that may be tied to his missing father. ...Keep on reading: Brad Pitt and James Gray Give You ‘Ad Astra’

But for many, the release of "Between Two Ferns: The Movie" is a cinematic event of mammoth significance.
