Piolo abstaining from food, water and sex—and here’s why

No food and water. No sex, too. Actor Piolo Pascual admitted to have been abstaining from these things since Ramadan, the Islamic tradition that began this year on May 15. As for sexual abstinence, however, "this has been going on for years now," the actor told reporters during the recent media gathering for My Daily Collagen, a food supplement that Piolo endorses. "It's not surprising because I have no love life," explained the actor, who used to date actress Shaina Magdayao. "I stay away from temptations by surrounding myself with productive people. To keep a clean conscience and not think of impure thoughts, I simply focus on work."

Huge marlin sinks Filipino fishing boat

  It reads like a modern-day take on Ernest Hemingway's "The Old Man and the Sea": Five Filipino fishermen are cast adrift for days on a makeshift raft after a huge marlin sinks their boat.   The men were fishing in the South China Sea last week when a 1.8-meter-long marlin punctured their boat's wooden hull with its giant bill, vessel master Jimmy Batiller told Agence France-Presse (AFP) on Wednesday.   Their 12-meter boat quickly dipped beneath the waves in the early evening of Oct. 3, leaving the crew with little drinking water or food until their eventual rescue by the US Navy on Monday.   2 big holes   "It (the fish) hit the bo...Keep on reading: Huge marlin sinks Filipino fishing boat.....»»

‘Florence’ flooding spreads as storm heads northeast

WILMINGTON, North California --- With Wilmington cut off from the rest of North Carolina by still-rising floodwaters from Florence, officials plan to airlift food and water to the city of nearly 120,000 people as rescuers elsewhere pull inland residents from homes swamped by swollen rivers. The deadly storm was still dumping rain and had top winds around 30 mph (50 kph) early Monday, but forecasters said it was expected to gradually pick up forward speed and complete a big turn toward the Northeast. Flooding worries were increasing in West Virginia and Virginia, where power outages also were on the rise. About 500,000 homes and businesses were in the dark.

Why you should store flour and apples in the fridge

Google has released new tips on how to reduce our environmental footprint which include handy food waste tips like storing flour, nuts and apples in the fridge. On their interactive site "Your Plan, Your Planet", created with the California Academy of Sciences, users can learn how their consumption of water, energy and food, or in the latter case, lack thereof, impacts the planet. Overall, food production accounts for more than two-thirds of the world's water use, and more than a quarter of carbon dioxide emissions, Google points out.
