A Marcos getting convicted for graft? Now, you’re either joking or taking fentanyl. Except, it isn’t fake news or a product of deranged blabbering.

Across time, Boholano attitude towards rice and its consumption has apparently changed. Rice, to Boholanos is as sacred as ubi, its ethno-religious root crop.

So you want to raise a sports champion

If there was one incident on the tennis court I still can't quite forget, it was one involving a father and his young daughter training, obviously for age-group events.

The daughter was a varsity player and an age-group competitor, and was being groomed to go higher in the ranking. He wanted her to be very good, a co-spectator told me, sensing my disapproval. I know, I said, but must he verball...Keep on reading: So you want to raise a sports champion.....»»
