Aspiring New York artist is an Uber-driving mom

  NEW YORK -- Two years ago, when her husband was laid off, aspiring artist Ann Constantino Beck was thrust -- literally --- into the driver's seat. She became an Uber driver, and for several months was the family's breadwinner. Ann is among the 14 percent of women across the country who drive for the popular ride-sharing service, according to a Forbesarticle. Safety may be the biggest concern for women, but for Ann, 40, a mother of two young children, it is abusive passengers that get her thinking how much longer to continue being an on-demand driver. She is talking about passengers who are not only critical about driving style -- either too fast or too slow -- but als...Keep on reading: Aspiring New York artist is an Uber-driving mom.....»»

‘Probinsyano’ giving cops bad image? Poe says ‘bato-bato sa langit’

People see the police according to what lawmen do in real life and not on what fictional characters show on television. Senator Grace Poe said this Thursday in response to Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Oscar Albayalde's claim that the ABS-CBN television series "Ang Probinsyano" was giving a "bad impression" on lawmen and promoting the idea of "instant justice." The senator is the daughter of actor Fernando Poe, Jr., who was the first to portray the lead role in "Ang Probinsyano." Her mother, actress Susan Roces, also plays a character in the TV series.

Nieky Holzken ready to make an impact in ONE Championship

Nieky Holzken is not letting his difficult past get in the way of his goal of becoming a ONE Super Series World Champion ahead of his promotional debut in the co-main event of ONE: WARRIOR'S DREAM on 17 November at Stadium Istora in Jakarta, Indonesia. Touted by many as one the greatest kickboxers in the world today, Holzken revealed that his difficult past eventually led his focus on honing his skills in martial arts. The sport, he says, molded him to become a better person through years of training. "I was a problem child. I got kicked out of school when I was 9. I had to go to another school. I did not enjoy school. I was very smart, but I didn’t want to learn. If I could do it again, I would do it differently," Holzken shared. "I trained with Ramon Dekkers, Cor Hemmers, and Sjef Weber. Sjef was very good with my boxing, and Ramon and Cor with kickboxing. It gave me personality, character, and respect," he added. Other than refusing to learn in school, "The Natural" also shared that he was raised out of a broken family. He ultimately took something positive out of the situation, and used it to motivate himself to become a good father. "My parents separated, and I only had contact with my father’s family, and no contact with my mother. It made me very hard, and it helped me along the way," he revealed. "I want my children to live with a mom and dad who are together. What I experienced definitely makes me a better dad," he stressed. Having learned from his past and with a goal in sight, Holzken is bent on impressing in his ONE Championship debut as he aims to become one of the organization's world champions in the very near future. "To win in my debut would be great. I want to become the World Champion in ONE," he quipped......»»
