Editorial: They do not see the joke was on them

There is a song by the BeeGees which was quite popular here in the country in the 70s which goes, “I started a Joke, which started the whole world crying, but I didn’t see that the joke was on me, oh no, that the joke was on me...” We are reminded of the idiomatic expression in that song when minions around a “butangero” boss try to tone down or pad the fall of the cusses and grave threats their boss spews whenever he chooses to push his weight around those he perceives as lesser people or to threaten critics away......»»

Editorial: Free education is not a dream

The Philippines has since been under the worst economic and social conditions. It is under these dire conditions that education has become the “greatest gift” a parent can pass on to their children. A college diploma is seen as a “gate pass” to the dream of escaping poverty. For years, families endure all kinds of sacrifice to access the much-sought out education, as the family’s valued “investment”......»»

PBA: Coach Yeng on NLEX s 2-0 start: 'Hanap na ako work dito sa Jakarta'

ANTIPOLO CITY --- NLEX is having a dream start in the 2018 Governors' Cup. Without Kiefer Ravena, Kevin Alas, Asi Taulava, and head coach Yeng Guiao, the Road Warriors have two impressive wins in three days to start the season-ending joust, taking over first place with a 2-0 record. The team is doing well without several key pieces, with assistant coach Jojo Lastimosa doing a great job filling in for coach Yeng. After NLEX beat Northport Sunday, 123-107, Coach Jolas read a message from coach Yeng post-game and Guiao is now considering taking job offers in Indonesia. Guiao is currently in Jakarta leading Gilas Pilipinas' campaign in the 2018 Asian Games. The whole thing is a joke of course. "Congrats coach, nice job. Hanap na ako work dito sa Jakarta mukhang di ako kailangan diyan," coach Jolas said as he read coach Yeng's message on his phone. Despite the stellar start with him in charge, Lastimosa is quick to give credit to the entire NLEX coaching staff, adding that it's a complete team effort to keep the team afloat with Guiao out. "This is not my sole responsibility," he said. "I'm just here facing you guys but the other guys have been doing the heavy lifting. I'm just doing the subs and I have to aske them if it's okay if they say don't, then I won't put the guys in. A lot of preparation happens in practice and the other coaches are really, really working," Lastimosa added.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

Cat whisperers, attention: Get paid to cuddle cats on a secluded Greek island

Love cats, but humans not so much? Comfortable with the idea of living on a secluded Greek island in the company of 55 cats, Grecian sun and sea, and little else? A feline sanctuary on a small Greek island called Syros will pay you to cuddle cats all day while soaking in the sun. The job offer was posted online recently by Joan Bowell who heads the Facebook page for God's Little People Cat Rescue, with a reassurance that the post is genuine and "not a joke." The candidate would take over the cat sanctuary on the Greek island of Syros, in exchange for a free stay on the island and a modest salary.

Antipolo flood didn’t stop these men from posing in their swimsuits

Parts of Antipolo may be flooded due to the tropical storm but these three men still had time to do a photo shoot. They even wore swimwear as they waded through floodwater. The album was posted by John Warren Mabunga on Facebook. He captioned the album with "We just wanna have fun!!! #FLOODSISTER." It looks like they did considering how game they were to pose in knee-high floods. And climbed a gate for that fashion editorial setup. Plus, play Good Samaritan as they pushed a car. Despite the funny shoot, John Warren also placed a disclaimer that they were also saddened by the flooding in their subdivision and told everyone to take care. We hope they got checked...Keep on reading: Antipolo flood didn’t stop these men from posing in their swimsuits.....»»
