This week Google announced that the company will be joining CERN openlab, a partnership that will lay the foundation of future research in cloud computing, machine learning and quantum computing.

Pope: The din of ‘ever more rich’ drown out cries of poor

VATICAN CITY --- Pope Francis is praying with thousands of poor people in the splendor of St. Peter's Basilica and decrying that the "few rich" grow even wealthier. The Catholic Church dedicated Sunday to the world's poor, and Francis invited needy persons and volunteers who help them to Mass as well as to lunch at the Vatican. In his homily, Francis called injustice the "perverse root of poverty." He lamented that while the cry of the poor becomes stronger, it is drowned out by "the din of the rich few, who grow ever fewer and more rich." He said Christians cannot be indifferent, and cited the "stifled cry" of the unborn, of starving children, abandoned elderly, youths in w...Keep on reading: Pope: The din of ‘ever more rich’ drown out cries of poor.....»»

Migrants rely on social media to reach families back home

SAN PEDRO SULA, Honduras --- There was cake at little Brithani Lizeth's third birthday party, and also tears. Though her grandmother and aunt tried to make their simple cinder block home festive, the little girl could not be consoled. She missed her parents.

Imelda should be held in contempt for skipping sentencing – Hilbay

The Sandiganbayan should not let pass the lies of former first lady Imelda Marcos, who claimed that she was ill when she skipped the promulgation of her graft case, according to former Solicitor General Florin Hilbay. Hilbay, a senatorial aspirant, was among the 200 people who gathered at the People Power Monument on Sunday to call for the immediate arrest of the wife of the late dictator Ferdinand Marcos. "I don't think the Sandiganbayan should allow that kind of blatant dishonesty to go unpunished," Hilbay told reporters. "At the very least, she should have been cited for contempt of court... Down the line, they should deny her the remedies of appeal because she decided not t...Keep on reading: Imelda should be held in contempt for skipping sentencing – Hilbay.....»»

The biggest thing Shawn learned from Taylor

Shawn Mendes used to be a bundle of nerves when performing onstage. Being an opening act for Taylor Swift's "1989" tour, in particular, terrified him; he didn't want to "mess up" in front of the pop superstar and her legions of fans. But Taylor gave Shawn some valuable advice that changed the young singer-songwriter's outlook about performing for a big crowd. "She told me, 'Everybody in the audience is there to have fun and support you. Nobody is there to judge. It's not a TV show where they're judging you,'" he recalled in an interview with Billboard. From that moment, Shawn said, he finally learned what it truly meant to be a performer---it's not about being perfect, but e...Keep on reading: The biggest thing Shawn learned from Taylor.....»»

Third time’s the charm for Dingdong and Dennis

Time isn't something we don't have a lot of these days. But we were only too happy to catch up with Dingdong Dantes and Dennis Trillo early this week to talk about "Cain at Abel," the action-drama series about warring siblings that begins its telecast on GMA 7 tonight. We've always held Dennis in high regard because of his consistently textured and diverse portrayals on TV (his performance in "My Husband's Lover" remains a high point in his acting career), but his chameleon-like skills as an actor are even more noticeable in films. For the latter, the disparate lineup includes the schmaltzy romance "Blue Moon," the noirish actioner "The Janitor" and the period drama, "Aishite I...Keep on reading: Third time’s the charm for Dingdong and Dennis.....»»

Guns N’ Roses PH concert—a showcase of musical virtuosity, agility, endurance

Not in this lifetime," the rock icon Axl Rose told a gaggle of paparazzi hounding and asking him one night in April 2012 about the prospect of sharing the stage once more with his former Guns N' Roses bandmates. Little did he know then---or did he?---that that dismissive response would end up being the title of the reunion concert tour fans all over the world had been yearning for. All they needed was just a little patience. In 2016, lead vocalist Axl, and the two other founding members, guitarist Slash (Saul Hudson) and bassist Duff McKagan, played together for the first time in more than two decades, setting aside their knotty, acrimonious past.
