Crawford feels he should be next in line for Pacman

Unbeaten welterweight champ Terence Crawford can't wait to share the ring with resurgent boxing legend Manny Pacquiao. The 30-year-old pound-for-pound A-lister from Omaha said he should be the top pick among all fighters queued up in the "Pacquiao sweepstakes." In an interview with Los Angeles Times, the 30-year-old Crawford (33-0 with 24 knockouts) said he's been eyeing that fight for three years now. "Like I've said before, I'm not worrying about Pacquiao right now. If the fight presents itself and it comes to fruition, then we'll handle that.

Your nation needs you–register and vote

Visit us on Instagram To be You; Facebook: To be You; e-mail inq.tobeyou@gmail.com It's easy to think that your vote doesn't make a difference. In a country of millions and an electoral system allowing multiple candidates, it's hard to see how a single citizen's personal decision can sway the course of an entire country.

In 1937, the Philippines became one of the first countries in Asia to allow women to vote.

Congress can’t extend terms by resetting polls—lawyer

Election lawyer Romulo Macalintal on Friday said the 2019 midterm elections could not be postponed, whether through the passage of a law or through a people's initiative.   Though the Constitution states that the country's regular election shall be held on the second Monday of May, unless otherwise provided by law, Macalintal said that this should not run counter to the provision setting the terms of office of elective officials, which is six years for senators and three years for congressmen and local officials.   In fact, he said, the Supreme Court had already ruled in 1991 that the legislature could not extend their terms by postponing an election.   H...Keep on reading: Congress can’t extend terms by resetting polls—lawyer.....»»
