BI order vs Sister Fox ‘not surprising at all’, says lawyer

The order of the Bureau of Immigration (BI) denying Sister Patricia Fox's bid for the renewal of her missionary visa "is not surprising at all." The Australian missionary's counsel, Katherine Panguban, made this remark as she asserted that it's been clear that the BI just wants Fox out of the country. "It is not surprising at all that the BI maintained its position against Sr. Pat's application," Panguban said in a statement Monday. According to Panguban, the BI has long prejudged the case of Fox so that it "consciously turns a blind eye and deaf ears to reason and evidence." She also said the BI merely "gives in to the whims and caprice of its master in Malacaang." RE...Keep on reading: BI order vs Sister Fox ‘not surprising at all’, says lawyer.....»»

Pressure mounting, former Trump ’fixer’ turns aggressive

WASHINGTON --- The hiring of a Washington insider to be a public attack dog. Tantalizing leaks to the media. Puzzling allegations of actions that could fell a president. Talk of more to come. What is Michael Cohen up to? President Donald Trump's ex-lawyer has largely stayed out of the spotlight in the months since federal agents raided his office and hotel room and seized scores of records about his work for Trump. But this week, he has taken a sharply more aggressive and public turn, seeming to wage open warfare with the White House while weighing whether to cooperate with investigators. The moves suggest Cohen is looking for a way out of looming trouble. But his behavio...Keep on reading: Pressure mounting, former Trump ’fixer’ turns aggressive.....»»

‘Sexed-up’ J Law heats up polarizing espionage thriller

Even with its nudity and wince-inducing gore, Francis Lawrence's "Red Sparrow" doesn't always work---but, it has no difficulty holding viewers' attention. Moreover, there's something about the "sexed-up" Jennifer Lawrence (as tragic ballerina-turned-hardened spy Dominika Egorova) and her formidable thespic cohorts---Matthias Schoenaerts, Charlotte Rampling, Jeremy Irons, Mary-Louise Parker---that allows the production to transcend its doom-and-gloom grit and creepy cynicism, and turns it into a viewable espionage drama. Joel Edgerton is miscast in the role of Nate Nash, the idealistic CIA agent who helps Dominika turn the tables on her remorseless tormentors. He works hard to k...Keep on reading: ‘Sexed-up’ J Law heats up polarizing espionage thriller.....»»

Japan turns tables on France with sake nouveau

For decades France has exported millions of bottles of Beaujolais to Japan every November, with some people celebrating its arrival by bathing in the fruity young red wine. Now Japanese rice wine makers hope to turn the tide by bringing sake nouveau to France. While wine critics are apt to turn up their noses up at overly young banana-scented Beaujolais, the sake nouveau being sent to France is one of Japan's best-kept secrets, its promotors claim. A dozen top French chefs are so passionate about Japan's national drink that they have incorporated sake nouveau into their menus this week, either serving it with French food or including it in their recipes. "Sake n...Keep on reading: Japan turns tables on France with sake nouveau.....»»
