‘Silver Sable’ and ‘Black Cat’: 2 forthcoming spin-offs from ‘Spider-Man’ universe

Sony has plans to gain greater traction in the superhero universe. Following the release of "Venom" on October, the studio is considering two further films featuring two more characters from the Spider-Man franchise, Silver Sable and Black Cat. In the run-up to the release of the much-awaited film about Spider-Man's arch-enemy "Venom" with Tom Hardy and Michelle Williams, Sony is already evaluating further Spider-Man universe projects. In June, previously announced plans for a single film that would feature Silver Sable, a war criminal-hunting mercenary and Black Cat, a catsuited burglar, were scrapped.

Mommy Melai adopts ‘color-coded’ discipline method

Comedienne-TV host Melai Cantiveros has a unique way of disciplining her two daughters: she uses color codes to warn them when they misbehave. Melai is married to actor Jason Francisco and is a proud mom to Amelia, 4, and Stella, 1. "I use colored hangers. I raise the pink hanger as a warning sign. If Mela (Amelia) sees me with the black one, that means I'm really, really mad at her," the comedienne said. "I don't really hit Mela---I just tap her. Panakot lang whenever she doesn't listen and becomes too naughty. It works for her. Mela has grown up to be very disciplined." Whenever she'd use the black hanger on her child, Melai said she would also make sure to explain why she...Keep on reading: Mommy Melai adopts ‘color-coded’ discipline method.....»»

Einstein’s theory of relativity passes yet another test

NEW YORK --- More than a century after Albert Einstein proposed it, his theory of general relativity has passed another test. With giant telescopes pointed at the center of our galaxy, a team of European researchers observed a fast-moving star that got close to a monstrous black hole. They saw that the black hole distorted the light waves from the star in a way that agrees with Einstein's theory. The result was reported Thursday in the journal Astronomy & Astrophysics. Einstein's theory says the fabric of the universe is not simply space, but a more complex entity called space-time, which is warped by the presence of heavy objects. Black holes offer a good opportunity...Keep on reading: Einstein’s theory of relativity passes yet another test.....»»

ONE: At 51 years old, martial arts legend Renzo Gracie believes he s at his best

Martial arts legend Renzo Gracie is set to make his return to MMA on Friday at the Mall of Asia Arena when he takes on fellow veteran Yuki Kondo at ONE Championship: Reign of Kings. At 51 years old, many would argue that Gracie is way past his prime, but the sixth-degree Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt believes that age is really just what you make of it. “The funny thing is, if you believe you are old at 30, or if you believe that you are very young at 30, both ways, you are right. So you are what you believe.” Gracie said during the Reign of Kings Press Launch, Tuesday afternoon at the City of Dreams Grand Ballroom. Eight years removed from his last professional MMA bout, Gracie believes that he’s even in better shape now than he was during his supposed peak years. “I believe that I’m better now than I was when I was 25.” Gracie then shared an interesting outlook on being considered as ‘over the hill’ so to say. “Most people say, ‘You know, you’re getting over the hill,’ What they don’t understand is that climbing the hill is the tough part. You have no view, you’re just pushing yourself up. When you get to what they call ‘over the hill’, that’s where you pick up the speed, and the view, it’s wonderful.” Truth be told, Gracie didn’t need to come back. It’s not as if he needed to fight. For the MMA legend, it’s about loving the fight, and wanting to be part of something as big as ONE Championship. “I’m at the best time of my life, I have everything, I didn’t need to be here, but how could I miss the opportunity to be part of something as great as this amazing sport? I had to embrace this, I had to push myself, I had to be in shape. “ “I honestly believe that I’m in my best right now. Mentally, the way that I prepared was very smart, I was completely injury-free, I’m feeling like a check for a million dollars that didn’t bounce.” Gracie added.   Renzo Gracie takes on Yuki Kondo in a legend-versus-legend fight at ONE Championship: Reign of Kings on Friday, July 27th at 8:30 PM on ABS-CBN S+A channel 23! .....»»

Pia Wurtzbach makes special connection with Super Junior’s Siwon

Pia Wurtzbach has finally been able to answer a K-pop idol's invitation to watch Super Junior's show three years after he invited her. But first, some background on Wurtzbach's fangirl days: Miss Universe 2015 had --- or perhaps has --- a major crush on Super Junior's Siwon, at least according to tweets from 2009 where she described him as "super hot" and fantasized him as her husband. She can't be blamed, given Siwon's hunky good looks and talent. After her Miss Universe win in 2015, the K-pop star congratulated Wurtzbach through an Instagram comment and invited her to the next Super Show. Last Saturday, June 30, the meeting which has been years in the making was finally fulfi...Keep on reading: Pia Wurtzbach makes special connection with Super Junior’s Siwon.....»»
