Last supper from the Titanic to be recreated by luxury hotel

History buffs of the Titanic, along with cinematic fans of Jack and Rose, may be interested in an extravagant dinner that will recreate the last supper served aboard the ocean liner. But rest assured, the meal will be served on terra firma. On April 14, the eve of the ship's sinking 106 years ago, chefs at the Restaurant Petrus at Island Shangri-La, Hong Kong will whip up the same 10-course meal which was served to the ship's First Class guests on the evening of its ill-fated sinking. Though the menu will be inspired by the original meal, chef Ricardo Chaneton will take a few creative liberties with modernized updates to dishes like Fillet Mignon Lili, roast guinea fowl, lamb w...Keep on reading: Last supper from the Titanic to be recreated by luxury hotel.....»»

The captain of the Greenpeace ship is a woman

Films and literature tell us one thing about ship captains: The captain is almost always a man. The captain in "Titanic" was a man. Jack Sparrow from "Pirates of the Caribbean" is male; Captain Hook, too, menacing with a mean mustache at that.   Reality, however, can opt otherwise.   Hettie Geenen, captain of Greenpeace's Rainbow Warrior, is a woman. She leads a team of 16 dedicated crew members, sailing around the world and fighting for climate justice.   Hettie has been sailing since she was 13 years old. She joined Greenpeace in 1999 as Third Mate, and her first voyage on the Rainbow Warrior brought her to Manila. She recalls a distinct but sad mem...Keep on reading: The captain of the Greenpeace ship is a woman.....»»

Titanic talents at Marvel Creative Day Out

Twenty years ago, the only chance for you to show Marvel your work was for you to have it mailed to New York, or go to San Diego Comic-Con and actually line up," Marvel penciller Leinil Yu says.   "But now you get to meet C.B. (Cebulski) right here in Manila. How cool is that? There's no position in Marvel Comics higher than his and he gets to see your portfolio firsthand," Yu adds.   Marvel reveals that there are a lot of Filipinos working as pencillers, inkers and colorists in their team. In fact, the Philippines ranks third among the comic giant's pool of artists in terms of number, following the United States and Italy.   It may be a chance for po...Keep on reading: Titanic talents at Marvel Creative Day Out.....»»

‘Titanic’ keeps that sinking feeling alive, 20 years on

LOS ANGELES, United States --- Part saturnine elegy to doomed youth, part exaltation of the transcendent power of love, blockbuster disaster movie "Titanic" is delivering that sinking feeling to a whole new generation of fans. Tuesday marks two decades since Rose vowed to Jack she'd "never let go" -- before spectacularly reneging on her promise, sending her frozen-to-death paramour to a watery grave and leaving "Titaniacs" worldwide sobbing into their popcorn. The anniversary has been celebrated with screenings across the United States, and audiences are still swooning over the young lovers played by Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet -- now both Oscar winners and Hollywood A-l...Keep on reading: ‘Titanic’ keeps that sinking feeling alive, 20 years on.....»»

49ers lose QB Jimmy Garoppolo to season-ending knee injury

By JOSH DUBOW,  AP Pro Football Writer SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — Jimmy Garoppolo's addition last season immediately turned around the fortunes of the San Francisco 49ers. Now the 49ers will have to go back to life before Garoppolo for the rest of the season. The Niners announced Monday that Garoppolo tore the ACL in his left knee while making a cut late in a loss at Kansas City, sidelining him for the rest of the season. "It is very unfortunate," coach Kyle Shanahan said. "I'm not going to sugarcoat it. It was hard waking up today. We were down and disappointed about it because we were looking forward a lot to playing with Jimmy this year and going through the good and the bad knowing that he'd benefit from all of it. Now we don't get to do it. I know Jimmy is really down about it and so are we but it's still going to be all right." The injury deals a serious blow to the 49ers (1-2), who had planned their rebuild around Garoppolo and now must turn again to C.J. Beathard at quarterback. Garoppolo will undergo surgery in the next week or two after the swelling goes down and should be ready to play again next season. The 49ers are planning to promote Nick Mullens from the practice squad and also will bring several veterans in for tryouts this week, including Tom Savage, Kellen Clemens, possibly T.J. Yates and Matt Moore. One quarterback who won't be brought in is former 49ers starter Colin Kaepernick, who opted out of his contract with San Francisco in March 2017 after Shanahan decided he wanted to go with a style of offense that didn't fit Kaepernick's game. "That's what I said last year and it's the same situation now," Shanahan said. "I always look into what style of offense I want to do and what style of offense we've been doing the last two years." The Niners struggled with Beathard and Brian Hoyer last season before the midseason addition of Garoppolo changed their fortunes. San Francisco won the final five games last year after Garoppolo took over as starter and the team rewarded him with a $137.5 million, five-year contract. The 49ers will have to wait another year to earn dividends on that investment. Garoppolo got hurt in the fourth quarter of a 38-27 loss Sunday when he was scrambling toward the sideline and decided to cut up field instead of going out of bounds. Garoppolo's left knee buckled just before Kansas City cornerback Steven Nelson delivered a big hit, ending what was supposed to be his first full season as a starter after just three games. Shanahan said the play should serve as a reminder to quarterbacks about the importance of protecting their bodies. "That's something that Jimmy will probably look at differently going forward because now he'll remember this the rest of his life," Shanahan said. "Nothing against him. This happens with everyone. You see it every Sunday. It's a reminder for everyone why it's an obvious coaching point." Expectations were high in San Francisco this season that the team could end a four-year playoff drought after Garoppolo had a full offseason to immerse himself in Shanahan's offense. But with Garoppolo and new running back Jerick McKinnon both knocked out for the season with torn ACLs in September, those high hopes have been put on hold. Garoppolo had completed 59.6 percent of his passes with five TDs, three interceptions and an average of 8.1 yards per attempt for a 90 passer rating. While he hasn't been quite as efficient as he was late last year after being acquired at the trade deadline from New England for a second-round pick, the Niners offense has been far more potent than it was before he took over as quarterback. Beathard started five games as a rookie last year, completing 54.9 percent of his passes with four touchdowns, six interceptions, 19 sacks, 6.4 yards per attempt and a 69.2 passer rating that was second lowest in the NFL. Beathard threw a touchdown pass to George Kittle on his first snap Sunday only to have it negated by a penalty and wasn't in for any other plays in the game. "I have a lot of confidence in C.J.," Shanahan said. "I think C.J. got a lot of experience last year. We liked him a lot coming out of college. ... He got thrown into as tough a situation as I could imagine a rookie quarterback being thrown in and the guy didn't blink." NOTES: CB Richard Sherman will miss a couple of weeks with a strained left calf. ... RB Matt Breida hyperextended his knee and is questionable this week. ... RG Mike Person will be questionable with a sprained knee......»»

Bayern toasting Bundesliga dominance ahead of Oktoberfest

By CIARAN FAHEY,  Associated Press BERLIN (AP) — Bayern Munich's rivals appear to have thrown in the towel already. "Bayern's superiority is striking," Schalke general manager Christian Heidel said after his team lost to the defending Bundesliga champions on Saturday. "The way they played, I can't imagine them losing another game." Bayern was supposed to have had a tough start against Hoffenheim, Stuttgart, Bayer Leverkusen and then Schalke, last season's runner-up. But the team's confidence is booming after winning every game comfortably since its loss to Eintracht Frankfurt in the German Cup final in May. "It can go on like that," Bayern sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic said. Ominously for Bayern's rivals, the Bavarian powerhouse has not lost during Oktoberfest for the last eight years. The 185th edition of the beer-festival in Munich started Saturday and runs until Oct. 7. While they may indulge themselves by wearing the traditional leather pants of the region, the players will have to resist the temptations of the jugs of wheat beer at the festival - at least until the last Sunday. "Until then they can maybe drink a radler," Salihamidzic joked, referring to beer watered down by non-alcoholic soda. Bayern coach Niko Kovac said the players know what is expected of them during Oktoberfest. "If they go there, they will certainly be recognized and that won't go down well. We'll have time to go there, but now we still have to get points," Kovac said. Bayern, which is going for a record-extending seventh straight title, next hosts Bavarian rival Augsburg on Tuesday, before traveling to second-place Hertha Berlin on Friday. A win against its closest rival could see Bayern open up a five-point lead after six matches. 'DEATH THREAT' Hoffenheim said it was shocked by the animosity displayed by Borussia Dortmund fans toward its billionaire backer, Dietmar Hopp, in the 1-1 draw on Saturday, when fans displayed what the club called a "death threat" against him. Dortmund fans rolled out a huge banner showing Hopp's head in crosshairs over the words "Hasta la vista, Hopp" across a large section of the guest block at the stadium in Hoffenheim. A similar banner, only much smaller, caused a stir 10 years ago. Dortmund chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke apologized for the banner. Hopp is a target for Dortmund fans after initiating legal proceedings against more than 30 of them for alleged obscenities during a game last season. HERTHA HERO It took some time, but Ondrej Duda finally seems to have arrived at Hertha in his third season at the club. The Slovakia midfielder sealed the 4-2 win over Borussia Moenchengladbach on Saturday, taking his goal tally to a league-leading four in four games. Duda only made three league appearances - 67 minutes altogether - in his first season at Hertha after joining from Legia Warsaw in 2016, while he scored one goal in 17 appearances last season. GOETZE'S FALL Mario Goetze, who scored Germany's World Cup-winning goal in 2014, has yet to play for Dortmund in the Bundesliga this season. The 26-year-old Goetze was left out of the squad altogether for the game at Hoffenheim, a decision that coach Lucien Favre said was purely sporting......»»

Where does Megastar Sharon Cuneta keep all her awards, movie posters and other show biz memorabilia---which, according to urban legend, can fill up a storage area the size of two basketball courts?   We asked the question because she had just added another trophy to her collection---a History Maker Award from the History Channel.   "Right now, the trophies are all over the place," she quipped. "We are sorting through 40 years' worth of memorabilia for the concert."   She is, of course, referring to her big shindig, at Araneta Coliseum on Sept. 28, "My 40 Years, Sharon."   In an exclusive interview, she shared with the Inquirer that some of ...Keep on reading: Meet the Megamanager and mentor.....»»

Angeline Quinto names the ‘superhero’ who gives her strength

It has been seven years since Angeline Quinto popularized "Patuloy ang Pangarap"---her winning piece in the talent search, "Star Power." But it's surprising and heartening to know, she related, that the ballad continues to inspire people to this day.   The messages she recently received on Instagram, from overseas Filipino workers in Dubai, were especially "touching."   "I was going through my inbox one time, and saw messages from a group of friends working abroad. They confided in me that they were feeling homesick; that their lives have been extremely difficult. But as much as they wanted to go home, they have no choice but to stay because they needed their jo...Keep on reading: Angeline Quinto names the ‘superhero’ who gives her strength.....»»

Implant helps paralyzed man walk again

PARIS, France -- Five years after he was paralyzed in a snowmobile accident, a man in the US has learned to walk again aided by an electrical implant, in a potential breakthrough for spinal injury sufferers. A team of doctors at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota says the man, using a front-wheeled walker, was able to cover the equivalent of the length of a football pitch, issuing commands from his brain to transfer weight and maintain balance -- all previously thought impossible for paralyzed patients. The man, now 29, severed his spinal cord in the middle of his back when he crashed his snowmobile in 2013. He is completely paralyzed from the waist down, and cannot move or feel anyt...Keep on reading: Implant helps paralyzed man walk again.....»»
