82-year-old Japanese on death row roams Tokyo freely while awaiting retrial

  Shuffling down the street sporting shorts, jacket and straw hat, 82-year-old Iwao Hakamada could be mistaken for any Japanese octogenarian going about his daily chores. But the former boxer has had anything but an ordinary life: he has been living under a death sentence for half a century, thought to be the longest-serving condemned man. The accused murderer finds himself in the extraordinary position of being sentenced to death but free awaiting a possible retrial. Supporters say nearly 50 years of detention, mostly in solitary confinement with the ever-present threat of execution looming over him, have taken a heavy toll on Hakamada's mental health. He now wal...Keep on reading: 82-year-old Japanese on death row roams Tokyo freely while awaiting retrial.....»»

Seafood hot pot–what’s not to like?

I was ecstatic when a friend gifted me with a tabletop induction cooker. It came with a cooking pot of its own, curved upward at the edges to accommodate ladles and ladles of bubbling hot soup. What this meant was that I could now cook my own hot pot, at my own dinner table, in my own home. My family and I love hot pot cooking. What's not to like? With a flavorful broth, lots of vegetables and fresh seafood, it's the ideal meal---low fat, wholesome and delicious. When you order it in a restaurant, it doesn't take long to serve since it requires no cooking in the kitchen. You basically cook your own meal---in hot broth, with ingredients you yourself pick from the menu. The ing...Keep on reading: Seafood hot pot–what’s not to like?.....»»

Bongbong says Pansol outing pushed him to ask Caguioa out of poll case

  Former Senator Ferdinand "Bongbong" Marcos Jr. said Friday he was initially against requesting Supreme Court (SC) Justice Alfredo Caguioa to inhibit from his electoral protest against Vice President Leni Robredo.   However, he also said, the outing of the Presidential Electoral Tribunal (PET) staff where one of Robredo's revisors joined was the last straw for him to move against Caguioa.   "It is something (motion for inhibition) that had been thought about for a very long time, but I was very hesitant and had always advised against it," Marcos said in a news forum.   "Kasi marami na talagang nangyari na nakikita namin na Justice Caguioa is ...Keep on reading: Bongbong says Pansol outing pushed him to ask Caguioa out of poll case.....»»

Cauliflower fried rice–my daily diet

People open restaurants because the owners feel they can offer dishes that will draw diners in. A dish's popularity is credited mostly to its creator, but many times determined by diners. A native-fare restaurant, Barrio Fiesta, has long been known for kare-kare and crispy pata (still the best today). The menu of our restaurant in the '70s, Au Bon Vivant, was created by French chefs and my mom. The French onion soup, Poulet Grand-Mere, Chateaubriand Bearnaise, and almond mousse became bestsellers. When I was writing the menu of Wooden Spoon and, later, Casa Daza, I had no idea how diners would receive it. I just included what I love to eat. What became bestsellers were the cr...Keep on reading: Cauliflower fried rice–my daily diet.....»»

PH among top 10 countries for asthma mortality

The Philippines ranks No. 9 in asthma mortality, with up to 7.9 percent of approximately 315 million suffering from the ailment globally. The prevalence of asthma in the Philippines alone was reported at 26.7 percent back in 2002, according to data from the National Asthma Epidemiology Survey. Contrary to common belief, people with asthma have difficulty breathing out, a sensation akin to breathing out through a straw. Asthma is a chronic respiratory disease marked by inflammation of the air passages, temporarily narrowing the airways that carry oxygen to the lungs. The airways are tubes that carry air in and out of the lungs. Asthmatic people have sore and swollen airways, mak...Keep on reading: PH among top 10 countries for asthma mortality.....»»

Bucket bag, linen evening dress—summer must-try trends

  I don't care what the Pagasa weather bureau says. It's officially the dry season, or what summer is in the country---at least according to my heat rash. I haven't experienced prickly heat rash since the 1980s, so I can confirm that all the '80s trends are making their way back---whether we like it or not. Crochet, raffia/straw purses, blue nail polish... they're all back for the summer, but in interesting iterations. Woven bags Straw bags used to be the province of women who wore long, floor-sweeping dresses to work with thong sandals, pretending they were on the beach instead of a dank office with a temperamental air-conditioner.
