LUCENA CITY---On the canonization day of Salvadoran Archbishop Oscar Romero on Sunday, activist priest Fr. Robert Reyes dared Catholic Church leaders in the Philippines to emulate the life of the new saint and speak out against government abuses and violence against the Filipino people.   "Does this silence amidst the extrajudicial killings and injustices against the poor a watered-down version of Christianity and a betrayal of Jesus Christ's mission?"

For the ‘First Man’ team, their mission was to get it right

LOS ANGELES --- Making a movie about Neil Armstrong may not necessarily be on par with, say, successfully landing on the moon but the pressure involved isn't a giant leap from that either. There are astronauts who were there, for one, in Michael Collins and Buzz Aldrin, in addition to all the people who were on the ground at NASA ready jump on any inaccuracies. There's the near-mythic weight that that achievement of being the first man to walk on the moon holds. For film fans, there's the "2001: A Space Odyssey" factor. And then there's the fact that Armstrong, who died in 2012 at age 82, while a stickler for facts, didn't like to talk much about himself --- even to his own fam...Keep on reading: For the ‘First Man’ team, their mission was to get it right.....»»

Alec Baldwin vows to break the talk show model by going deep

NEW YORK --- When his new talk show premieres Sunday night, don't expect Alec Baldwin to get overly political. The 60-year old actor plans to leave that on the set of "Saturday Night Live" with his occasional impersonations of President Donald Trump. "The Trump thing is just silly. Nothing we do on 'SNL' about Trump is going to change anybody's mind about anything," Baldwin said. "There are people in Washington going, 'That Alec Baldwin, I hate him'... and there are others that say, 'Thank you, for helping us process this.'" That's why he doesn't see an upside to being overly political on the new "The Alec Baldwin Show" on ABC at 10 p.m. The show features candid one-on-one conv...Keep on reading: Alec Baldwin vows to break the talk show model by going deep.....»»

Cheeses galore, ‘jamon’ Serrano, wagyu beef and other treats in Iloilo mall opening

  As someone who cooks at home almost every day, I am delighted every time a supermarket opens in town. It means more food sources, new discoveries, and the possibility of trying untested recipes.   As I walk down the aisles of a new supermarket, I take my sweet time examining the canned goods and their places of origin, checking the freshness of the produce, looking for the day's specials, and imagining what I could create out of them.   That was how the people of Iloilo must have felt, too, when The Marketplace by Rustan's opened its first branch in their city last week.   At Festive Walk Mall, it's the first in Western Visayas, an honor not...Keep on reading: Cheeses galore, ‘jamon’ Serrano, wagyu beef and other treats in Iloilo mall opening.....»»

Hall of Fame RB Barry Sanders enjoying new role with Lions

By LARRY LAGE,  AP Sports Writer DETROIT (AP) — Barry Sanders shook hands with fans, posed for pictures and engaged in small talk outside a suite at Ford Field before the Detroit Lions opened the season against the New York Jets. At halftime, the Hall of Fame running back was on the field to turn a huge key, and the stadium's speakers blared with the sounds of an engine revving. Sanders is in his second season as an ambassador for the team, a paid role that is sending him on the road for Detroit's game against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday. "It's definitely nice to be back after the first few years of being retired and there not being much communication," Sanders said in an interview with The Associated Press. "So, certainly just being able to be involved with certain things that the team is doing from a community outreach standpoint and that sort of thing, for me, it's great. "And, just being able to be around the game a little more and certainly around the Lions family a little more for me is meaningful so I do appreciate that." The Lions like the arrangement, too. Sanders visits suite holders during games and attends meet-and-greet sessions along with going to other team functions such as its draft party. "It's great having him around and back in the fold, interacting with fans and corporate sponsors," Lions president Rod Wood told The AP. "He's probably if not the best player in Lions history, he's in the handful of the best. "And, he's definitely the most remembered by our fans." While it may seem like a logical connection between the former star player and the only NFL team he played for, their relationship was not smooth in the years following his sudden and surprising retirement just before training camp began 1999. Sanders is always showered with cheers in the Motor City these days. But he was booed in public at times back in the day by fans who were still unhappy he walked away from the game after 10 spectacular seasons when he was on the verge of becoming the NFL's all-time leading rusher. "I hated that it came to the point where he was getting booed," said Lomas Brown, one of Sanders' former teammates. "He's one of the greatest ever and he did it all here in Detroit. There are still some people holding a grudge today, but that's been gone for a while." Brown hopes the Lions take another step in their relationship with Sanders by honoring him with a statue at Ford Field. "It's hard to believe there's not one," Brown said. Wood declined to say if there are plans to erect a Sanders statue. "We've talked about things we haven't announced," Wood said. When Calvin Johnson announced his retirement two years ago, it reminded people of Sanders' decision to walk away from the game. Like Sanders, the former star receiver chose to leave the Lions and the league with years left on his contract and seemingly some solid seasons left in his career. Johnson retired two years ago and the team has tried and failed, so far, to rekindle its relationship with him. As Sanders was the honored guest in Wood's suite for a game earlier this month, Johnson was in a nearby luxury box on the same floor. "I know Lions fans appreciate Barry's role with the team because he's the greatest Lion and one of the greatest running backs — if not the greatest — to play the game," said Johnson, who declined to talk about his relationship with the team. Brown believes time will take care of whatever issues are keeping Johnson from being a part of the organization in some way. "If the Lions continue to reaching out to him and being warm to him, I think it'll happen," Brown said. Wood is working on it. "It's still goal of the organization, and me in particular, to get Calvin back in the fold," Wood said. "It was good to see him at the (Jets) game.".....»»

India’s singing village, where everyone has their melody

Curious whistles and chirrups echo through the jungle around Kongthong, a remote Indian village, but this is no birdsong. It's people calling out to each other in music, an extraordinary tradition that may even be unique. Here in the lush, rolling hills of the northeastern state of Meghalaya, mothers from Kongthong and a few other local villages compose a special melody for each child. Everyone in the village, inhabited by the Khasi people, will then address the person with this individual little tune --- and for a lifetime. They have conventional "real" names too, but they are rarely used.
