2 insect species classified as threatened as glaciers melt
  HELENA, Mont. --- The continued existence of two species of insects is in doubt because climate change is melting away the glaciers and year-round snowfields they depend on, U.S. wildlife officials said Wednesday.   The western glacier stonefly and the meltwater lednian stonefly found in the northern Rocky Mountains will be protected as threatened species under the federal Endangered Species Act. U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service officials said.   "We recognize the fact that this species is not doing well," agency spokeswoman Jennifer Koches said. "The primary threat to the habitat to both species is climate-change-induced."   The stoneflies li...Keep on reading: 2 insect species classified as threatened as glaciers melt

Saudi king urges Iran to quit ‘harmful’ expansionism
    RIYADH, Saudi Arabia -- Saudi Arabia's King Salman urged arch-rival Iran on Wednesday to abandon an expansionist ideology that has "harmed" its own people, following violent street protests in the Islamic republic. A wave of demonstrations erupted in the sanctions-hit country on Friday after an announcement that petrol prices would be raised by as much as 200 percent with immediate effect. "We hope the Iranian regime chooses the side of wisdom and realizes there is no way to overcome the international position that rejects its practices, without abandoning its expansionist and destructive thinking that has harmed its own people," the king told the consultati...Keep on reading: Saudi king urges Iran to quit ‘harmful’ expansionism

Someone from the Philippines could win a $208 million jackpot this week!
The American Mega Millions lottery offers the biggest jackpot prize in the world: $208 million USD. That huge amount, which is up for grabs in Friday night's draw, has captured the attention of lottery fans all over the world and amazingly, the winner of this enormous prize could be someone from the Philippines. You may remember that Mega Millions awarded a $1.537 billion USD jackpot to a single, lucky winner in October 2018.

  Thirdy Ravena threw the ball in the air as the buzzer sounded and climbed up the LED board, before raising both hands in front of the Ateneo gallery. A familiar celebration, one he ended by celebrating with his teammates as confetti rained on the floor. It was a warranted show of joy. The Blue Eagles had chased an elite tag all season---not just champions; not just perfect. Greatest ever. They certainly forced the debate on that label after cementing a dream season with an 86-79 victory over University of Santo Tomas on Wednesday and completing a perfect run to the UAAP Season 82 crown at Mall of Asia Arena.

Gov’t clarifies Pogo tax
The Department of Finance and the Office of the Solicitor General (OSG) have agreed that all Philippine offshore gaming operators (Pogos) and their service providers operating in the country are taxable under existing laws. However, the OSG said Pogos based abroad were not covered by Philippine tax laws, Solicitor General Jose Calida said in a letter to Finance Secretary Carlos Dominguez III on Tuesday. "There is nothing in the [2018 OSG] legal opinion that states or even infers that all Pogos and their employees cannot be taxed," Calida told Dominguez.

Azkals rue missed opportunity vs Syria
DUBAI---THE Philippines walked away from Maktoum Bin Rashid Stadium with mixed emotions following a 1-0 defeat to leader Syria on Tuesday night in their Fifa World Cup and AFC Asian Cup qualifying clash here. The loss left a bitter taste, considering how easy they gave away the goal in the 23rd minute, but the Azkals are also taking plenty of encouragement at the way they stretched and pushed a quality side in Syria with their high-pressure and aggressive play in the second half. "It hurts the most because that might be our best performance [in the competition so far]," said Azkals coach Scott Cooper, whose team remained third in Group A with seven points, eight behind the unbeaten...Keep on reading: Azkals rue missed opportunity vs Syria

But instead of retreating in a corner and licking their wounds, the Knights were fired up by that exclusion and worked their way to the award that mattered the most. "We didn't have anybody in the mythical team, but the championship trophy is the best award that this team has received," Letran coach Bonnie Tan said.

TNT puts SMB Grand Slam bid in serious peril

Japanese health boosters

I was very interested until I heard about the $3,000 price on the six-month supply box. Exercise na lang.
