VP Robredo asks PET to disregard SolGen’s position on vote threshold

The camp of Vice President Leni Robredo asked the Supreme Court sitting as Presidential Electoral Tribunal (PET) to disregard position of the Office of the Solicitor General (OSG) that the 50 percent threshold in determining the valid votes during the 2016 elections should be maintained. Robredo aired her concern in a 13-page manifestation dated July 13 but made public only on Monday through her lawyer Atty. Romulo Macalintal. The Vice President said the OSG, through Solicitor General Jose Calida, is not privy to the threshold shading issue. Macalintal said taking the OSG's position would "erode the very foundation of our democracy." Calida was supposed to represent the Commi...Keep on reading: VP Robredo asks PET to disregard SolGen’s position on vote threshold.....»»

WORLD CUP KICKOFF: A look at the World Cup’s final day

MOSCOW (AP) — Here’s a look at what’s coming up at the World Cup , which is down to its final day, featuring the title match Sunday in Moscow between France and Croatia. PUTIN REAPPEARS The Russian president has kept a fairly low profile at the World Cup considering he’s more or less the man behind the tournament. Vladimir Putin attended the opening match a month ago in Moscow, a 5-0 win over Saudi Arabia that kicked off a surprising quarterfinal run for the home team. That’s evidently the only soccer he’s seen in person, though he has hosted a handful of events involving FIFA officials in and around Red Square, including a Saturday evening concert at the Bolshoi Theater. Putin was to meet with French President Emmanuel Macron and Croatian President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic on Sunday ahead of the final, then attend the match at Luzhniki Stadium a short drive from the Kremlin before heading off to meet U.S. President Donald Trump in Finland on Monday. WORLD CUP-CLASS ENTERTAINMENT If Putin is into Puerto Rican pop, he’s in for a treat. The tournament’s official song, “Live It Up,” has showed up at World Cup stadiums about as often as Putin himself. It will be showcased Sunday when Will Smith joins singers Nicky Jam and Era Istrefi in performing it during the closing ceremony. The song is innocuous enough, but that doesn’t mean some controversy couldn’t crop up. Though the three avoided anything sensitive during their news conference this week, Istrefi has ruffled feathers in the past on a topic that caused problems earlier in the tournament: An ethnic Albanian from Kosovo, she upset some conservative Serbs last year when she shot a music video inside an Orthodox Church. FIFA fined several Swiss players, also ethnic Albanians, who made pro-Albania symbols with their hands in a comeback win over Serbia in the group stage. WHO’LL TAKE HOME THE HARDWARE England’s Harry Kane has six goals to his credit, making him a near lock to win the Golden Boot , awarded to the tournament’s top scorer. The awards based on judgment calls are more up in the air. Croatia midfielder Luka Modric is a good bet to be named player of the tournament if he plays well again and Croatia wins. But the Golden Ball could just as easily go to Kylian Mbappe or Antoine Griezmann if France triumphs. Best goalkeeper? Maybe the toughest call of all. The two playing Sunday — France captain Hugo Lloris and Croatian sensation Danijel Subasic — and England’s Jordan Pickford all have strong cases in a tournament where several ’keepers have excelled. OH, AND THAT OTHER TROPHY Will France win its second World Cup, or Croatia its first? That could come down to the Croats’ stamina. No team has played three extra-time matches in the same World Cup, as Croatia has done in its past three contests. Moreover, France has had one more day to prepare because its semifinal preceded Croatia’s. “An extra 24 hours is a really big thing at this stage of the tournament,” Belgium coach Roberto Martinez noted Saturday, allowing for what edge his side might’ve had in its 2-0 win over England in the third-place match. On the other hand, Croatia has defied logic on this once already. It was faced with a fast, younger, relatively rested team in its semifinal against England, just as it is against France. After going down a goal, the Croats steadily grew stronger, controlling the game and beating opponents to the ball as if they were the ones with fresh legs, finally getting the winner in extra time. France will be favored for a lot of other good reasons , but another upset shouldn’t surprise anyone who’s been watching Croatia or the rest of this upset-filled World Cup. Catch the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™ Final between France and Croatia on July 15, Sunday, 11 PM LIVE on S+A, S+A HD, LIGA, LIGA HD and via livestream......»»

Sabrina the teenage wish

There's one name that's been thrown around so often when you ask the rising artists of the pop music scene who they want to collaborate with. It's Sabrina Carpenter.   The 19-year-old Disney star and American singer announced a new era for her music career with the release of "Almost Love," a tenaciously feisty and catchy bop about almost lovers taking it frustratingly slow. "It's falling for someone and knowing that you're inches away from love. It either has a happy ending, or no ending at all," Sabrina tells Super. "It was very easy to write because in these young years of our lives they always say you lose people along the way, sometimes for no reason other than they w...Keep on reading: Sabrina the teenage wish.....»»

Love machine on sympathy crutches: Beck embraces inner weirdo

As Beck has solidified his role as one of music's most influential figures, listeners have accepted a bargain -- on record, or live, they never know exactly what they're going to get. Playing Thursday night to thousands at Quebec City's summer festival on the sweeping Plains of Abraham battle site, Beck quickly made clear that his classic, wacky side was in the house. "Love machines on the sympathy crutches/Discount orgies on the dropout bases," Beck sang as he kicked off his set with "Devil's Haircut," which also opened his best-selling album, 1996's "Odelay". Backed by a seven-member band, Beck ripped into his catalog with crescendoing force, the powerful, quick-...Keep on reading: Love machine on sympathy crutches: Beck embraces inner weirdo.....»»

Trump back in Scotland ahead of talks with Putin

TURNBERRY, Scotland --- A roving press conference. Reporters piling into golf carts and running along fairways trying to keep up. A protester scattering golf balls marked with swastikas. The last time Donald Trump traveled to Scotland was in 2016, hours after the Brexit vote and shortly after he became the presumptive Republican presidential nominee. He created a media maelstrom as he held court with the press, compared pro-Brexit voters to his own supporters and mixed campaigning with business promotion in a way that was signature Trump. This time, his trip is likely to be less dramatic, as he spends the weekend out of the spotlight preparing for his high-stakes summit with Ru...Keep on reading: Trump back in Scotland ahead of talks with Putin.....»»
