DOH shuns big pharma firms’ warning vs price cuts
MANILA, Philippines --- Health Secretary Francisco Duque III has said the government was determined to cut prices of over a hundred medicines by more than 50 percent, despite warnings from a group of pharmaceutical companies that such a move would be more detrimental than beneficial to the public. Duque earlier this week told reporters the Department of Health (DOH) was "fighting for the best interest of the Filipinos" in setting a price cap on 122 medicines used to treat chronic ailments. It has been a decade since the list of only five medicines covered by the maximum drug retail price (MDRP) was updated. The DOH plans to add 122 more to the current list, Duque said without speci...Keep on reading: DOH shuns big pharma firms’ warning vs price cuts

Simbang Gabi: ‘Let us not miss lessons of darkness’
MANILA, Philippines --- One of the things 26-year-old Charina Clarisse Echaluce of Marikina City looks forward to during the holidays is attending the Simbang Gabi (dawn Mass). Her Christmas is not complete without it. "I get excited when December approaches, but more so during Simbang Gabi," said Echaluce, a reporter and book author. For the past 10 years, she has been joining millions of Catholics across the country in one of the most treasured Filipino Yuletide traditions: Nine dawn Masses starting on Dec. 16 and ending on Christmas Eve with the Misa de Aguinaldo. Many churchgoers believe that completing the dawn Masses would be rewarded with their wishes or petitions bei...Keep on reading: Simbang Gabi: ‘Let us not miss lessons of darkness’

Winning runner prefers napkin-padded ‘Nike’
ILOILO CITY, Philippines --- Her coaches encouraged her to wear running shoes to protect her feet. But 11-year-old Rhea Bullos still preferred to run barefoot. "It's as if something is restraining my feet," she told the Inquirer in Hiligaynon. The athlete from the town of Balasan won five gold medals in separate track and field events in the 2019 Iloilo School Sports Council (ISSC) Meet in Iloilo City which ended Friday. In the Elementary Girls Category of that event, she was declared the most bemedaled athlete. Bullos, who stands 4 feet and 11 inches, drew attention for running without shoes, her feet protected only by a "putos" (cover or wrapper).

Away from the shadow of influencers: The real Metro Manila food guide
The new Regional Director of the Department of Tourism-National Capital Region (DOT-NCR), Woodrow C. Maquiling Jr. really hit the ground running with his many programs for Metro Manila, especially for culinary tourism. While the young and dynamic Director RR, as he is fondly called, joined the DOT only last July, his team successfully launched last Thursday not only one but three initiatives to promote culinary tourism in Metro Manila: a food guide (the book is available at the DOT), a video on Metro Manila's tourist attractions and an app for touring Metro Manila that includes a list of restaurants and food finds. I am honored to have been part of the project as writer and editor ...Keep on reading: Away from the shadow of influencers: The real Metro Manila food guide

Faces of the News: Bono
Bono, rock band U2's front man, ruffled sensitive political feathers when he sent a "soft message" to President Rodrigo Duterte that the Philippines "can't compromise on human rights" before the band's one-night concert at the Philippine Arena. The group soon hit another nerve by including in a slideshow of empowered women the likes of beleaguered journalist Maria Ressa and the late President Cory Aquino --- not exactly favorites in this administration. While detractors slammed his political stance, Bono gained more fans when he refused to do the Duterte fist bump. The President's already "very popular" and has no need for Bono to be on his side, he said....Keep on reading: Faces of the News: Bono

Faces of the News: Roger Casogay
When sports officials couldn't decide who would carry the flag for Team Philippines in the opening of the Southeast Asian Games, they did the next best thing: appoint the country's top athletes to do the job. At the closing ceremony, there was no such dilemma. The only choice was Roger Casogay, who restored people's faith in humanity after opting to rescue a fallen competitor over a gold medal bid. Rescuing Indonesian Arip Nurhidayat during a surfing competition pushed Casugay into mainstream attention and got him praise from Indonesian President Joko Widodo. Fate took note as well, rewarding Casugay with a gold two days later for surfing's longboard event....Keep on reading: Faces of the News: Roger Casogay

Faces of the News: Debold Sinas
Three months into the job, and Brig. Gen. Debold Sinas, chief of the National Capital Region Police office, found himself at odds with the media. On Friday, the National Press Club (NPC) accused him of physically stifling a TV reporter who had attempted to interview him. The female reporter had approached him twice, and both times Sinas stopped her with stinging words and his huge hand across her face. NPC vice president Paul Gutierrez saw this as part of Sinas' "pattern of misbehavior" against the press. Earlier, Sinas had evicted police beat reporters from their office in Kamuning. But Sinas denied he was "antimedia" and accused the reporter of butting into his conv...Keep on reading: Faces of the News: Debold Sinas

Faces of the News: Gilas Pilipinas Women
The Philippines had never won a basketball gold in the Southeast Asian Games (SEA) before, though it came close several times. Coach Pat Aquino referenced those heartbreaks before the 30th SEA Games started. Then came championship night in 5x5 basketball, and the Philippines was finally the women's champion, beating Thailand, 91-71, in the finals. All those days of being ignored came to an end when the Gilas Pilipinas women stood on top of the podium and --- for the first time ever --- on top of the country's male-crowded basketball world. Gilas Pilipinas men's national coach Tim Cone said it best: "[The women] are the story tonight, not us."...Keep on reading: Faces of the News: Gilas Pilipinas Women

Something happened on the way to U2
On Dec. 10, the night before the U2 concert, I was in the office winding up work when a friend, Jing Garcia, messaged me to get down fast to Agimat, a bar in Poblacion, Makati: "Andito sila." "Sila" meant U2. In no time I was at Agimat, and Jing pointed to the table where U2 guitarist The Edge was, with a group that included chef Margarita Fores, her sister Bledes, and American chef Mario Batali. The Edge was drinking Joe's Brew, a local craft beer. The day before, in her Grace Park restaurant at Rockwell, Makati, Fores prepared dinner for U2 frontman Bono, Edge and three companions, including Batali. At Agimat, people looked relaxed, content to steal glances at Edge, though...Keep on reading: Something happened on the way to U2

Vizcaya group opposed to mining questions DILG move
MANILA, Philippines --- An environmental group in Nueva Vizcaya has called on residents around a copper and gold mine in the province to man the "people's barricade" to stop the continued operation of an Australian mining company whose license had expired. The Alyansa ng mga Nagkakaisang Novo Vizcayano para sa Kalikasan (Annvik) made the call on Thursday after it learned that the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) had ordered the provincial government to dismantle the checkpoints it had set up to block mining equipment from leaving or entering the OceanaGold Philippines, Inc., mine site at Didipio village in Nueva Vizcaya's Kasibu town.

Saturday suprise
Getting its groove in the second period, NorthPort kept its iron grip on the lead and never let go the rest of the way for a 124-90 win over Barangay Ginebra in the PBA Governors' Cup semifinals on Saturday at Smart Araneta Coliseum in Cubao. The Batang Pier dealt damage from inside and out, all thanks to import Michael Qualls' bruising presence and Garvo Lanete's pinpoint shooting that gave Pido Jarencio's crack crew a crucial 1-0 head start in the race-to-three series. "Perhaps we just caught Ginebra on their off night," coach Pido Jarencio said. "Though tonight saw a well-executed game plan [from us], especially on defense." Indeed, the defense was impeccable.

On the evening of Dec. 12, the actor, who previously starred in "Mission: Impossible---Fallout" and "Man of Steel" tirelessly and patiently autographed poster after poster, Funko Pop after Funko Pop, book, comic books, postcards, even a bust of himself as Superman. He posed for endless selfies, too, with the huge crowd that had gathered at the Activity Center of the Ayala Malls Manila Bay for the fan event and early screening of the upcoming Netflix fantasy series "The Witcher."

‘Motherless Brooklyn’ is Ed Norton’s Indulgent passion project
Actor Ed Norton steps behind the camera and back into the director's chair for the first time since 2000's "Keeping the Faith" to helm this passion project he's been developing for years, an adaptation of the Jonathan Lethem novel, whose script Norton wrote himself. In "Motherless Brooklyn," Ed Norton plays Lionel Essrog, a private investigator with Tourette's working for Frank Minna (Bruce Willis). An orphan, Essrog was "rescued" in a way by being taken under the wing of Minna, who taught him the business. Along with three other fellow boys from the orphanage, they became "Minna's Men." When a case they're assisting on goes terribly awry, Essrog takes it upon himself to figure out wh...Keep on reading: ‘Motherless Brooklyn’ is Ed Norton’s Indulgent passion project

The impact of Transformers Impactor
How long does it take for a comic book character to get a toy? How about 33 years? In 1986, Hasbro's Transformers toys were truly sunstorm-hot, and aside from the "Transformers" series Marvel Comics was publishing in the US, Marvel UK was publishing its own line of "Transformers" comic books with its own continuity. It was a grimmer, edgier story and out of that emerged the violent, powerful Impactor. The leader of the Autobot strike team the Wreckers (later to become a prominent part of Transformers comics lore), the harpoon-handed Impactor (created by Simon Furman and Jeff Anderson) boasted the Marvel UK "Transformers" title's more angular design and was an original creation. Though he...Keep on reading: The impact of Transformers Impactor

Salah scores twice as Liverpool beats Watford 2-0 in EPL
LIVERPOOL, England --- Mo Salah scored twice as Liverpool kept up its relentless Premier League title charge with a 2-0 win over last-place Watford on Saturday. Liveropol looked shaky defensively at times but Salah finished off a lightning counterattack to give the host the lead in the 38th minute at Anfield and then made sure of the victory with a cheeky backheel from a tight angle in injury time. The win provisionally extended Liverpool's lead over second-place Leicester to 11 points ahead the afternoon games, when Brendan Rodgers' team hosted Norwich. The Reds have won 16 of 17 league games so far, with one draw. They entered this game as a massive favorite against the team at th...Keep on reading: Salah scores twice as Liverpool beats Watford 2-0 in EPL

Why Angel looks up to Bono
  One of the people Angel Locsin has always looked up to is Bono, frontman of the seminal rock band U2. And her profound admiration for the musician goes beyond his work in the studio and onstage. "I salute his humanitarian work. I would love to hear him speak, know more about how he goes about it ... how he chooses his advocacies," she told the Inquirer on the sidelines of a recent press conference for the Philippine Red Cross' (PRC) partnership with the drone delivery service Zipline, where Bono is a board member. The new technology will utilize network of autonomous drones to make on-demand, emergency delivery of blood from the PRC---and, eventually, medical supplies...Keep on reading: Why Angel looks up to Bono
Back in each other’s arms
  "You have now seen the first trailer. What do you think? Will there be a happy ending [for] Steve and Diana? Why is Steve back?" Chris Pine asked, posting on Instagram a video from "Wonder Woman 1984." Fans of the Amazon princess, who believed she lost the love of her life in a plane explosion, will no doubt wait with much anticipation for the release of the movie in June 2020 to answer those questions. The more urgent question, of course, is how the people behind the movie bring back the intrepid Captain Steve Trevor, who seemingly sacrificed himself so the Germans will not be able to use devastating chemical weapons during World War I. But Eric Robinette in Showb...Keep on reading: Back in each other’s arms

Clint Eastwood on turning 90 and … Stormy Daniels
  LOS ANGELES---Clint Eastwood is turning 90 in May next year. "You don't have to say it out loud," Clint said with a smile on his familiar craggy face when his big milestone was brought up. "No, you are absolutely right." The actor-director, noted for his scowling, laconic onscreen persona but is a quiet, charming man in person, was asked what his definition of a good time is these days. "Stormy Daniels?" came his surprise reply. Clint, in a jacket and tie in this interview in Los Angeles, was still smiling. "I'll let my mind get out of control."

What does Julie Anne feel about the possibility of spending more time with Alden on set?

Swept under the rug
Everybody had high hopes for Young Celeb (YC) when he began to draw attention for his latest endeavor. But YC's rousing start soon turned into a "pedestrian" effort, especially after past indiscretions began to haunt him back. YC worked hard but was obviously distracted. It's a cautionary misstep that could have gotten worse if the people around him didn't cooperate. They chose to accentuate the positive and "shake off" (pun very much intended) the negative. Even the talks linking YC to Bold Musician (BM) quickly went pfft. For a change, YC's salacious past was quickly swept under the rug to help him "refocus." It takes a village, indeed.
