Where have all the sidewalks gone?

AN urban planner sent me the above parody from Pete Seeger’s 1955 song, “Where have all the flowers gone” to describe his feeling about the state of Bacolod’s streets and sidewalks. The lyrics were inspired by a Cossack folk song about the men having all left for the war. It came to the world’s attention […] The post Where have all the sidewalks gone? appeared first on The Daily Guardian......»»

Federer advances to record-extending 15th ATP Finals semi

By Sam Johnston, Associated Press LONDON (AP) — Roger Federer advanced to the last four of the ATP Finals for a record-extending 15th time with a 6-4, 6-3 victory over Kevin Anderson on Thursday. Six-time champion Federer needed only a set to advance and produced his best performance at the season-ending tournament to end the round-robin stages with a 2-1 win-loss record. Dominic Thiem's 6-1, 6-4 victory over Kei Nishikori earlier had left Federer with a modest task and ensured that Anderson became the first South African ever to reach the semifinals. Federer looked as if he was about to give up a break advantage for the second time in as many service games when he dropped to 0-40 attempting to close out the opening set at 5-4, but the 20-time Grand Slam champion found his first serve when it mattered most to hold. Anderson hadn't faced a break point in winning his first two matches. Federer, though, broke him twice more in the second set to claim top spot in the group and likely avoid a semifinal meeting with top-ranked Novak Djokovic. Having struggled in an opening loss to Nishikori and relied mainly on his serve when defeating Thiem, Federer finally found some timing with his ground-strokes to apply consistent pressure on Anderson's serve. The previously impenetrable Anderson serve wilted, with two double faults gifting Federer a 4-3 lead. Much to the surprise — and disappointment — of the partisan crowd at the O2 Arena, the Swiss great handed the break straight back with a series of errors. However, Federer steadied himself and made a delicate drop volley to break once more in the following game, before eventually closing out the set to maintain his record of having only missed the semifinals once in 16 appearances at the tournament. Federer lost just four points on serve in the second set. He used a backhand slice to break for 4-3 and the same shot brought up two match points at 3-5, 15-40. Having saved a match point on his way to securing a five-set quarterfinal victory over Federer at Wimbledon, Anderson threatened another comeback as he won a 21-shot rally to get back to deuce, but there was to be no repeat this time. Two more Anderson forehand errors ended the match and Federer won the group by virtue of their head-to-head record. With Djokovic clear favorite to top his group, which concludes Friday, Federer has boosted his chances of avoiding the in-form Serb until the final......»»

Japanese fashion brand’s futuristic fabric wows at Paris Fashion Week

  Japanese fashion brand Anrealage played with light in the Spring-Summer 2019 "Clear" collection, held at the Palais des Beaux-Arts during Paris Fashion Week.   The show began with scaled garments in shades of black, with futuristic handmade details that showed the delicate thought process behind each design.   The material is called Clear Black Photochromic, which is visibly black in the sunlight but gradually loses color under fluorescent lighting; it shifts toward gray and eventually becomes transparent, showing the inner wear and skin.

French singer and actor Charles Aznavour dies at age 94

PARIS --- Charles Aznavour, the French crooner and actor whose performing career spanned eight decades, has died. He was 94. One of the Armenian diaspora's most recognized faces and vocal defenders, he seduced fans around the world with his versatile tenor, lush lyrics and kinetic stage presence. He sang to sold-out concert halls until the end, resorting to a prompter only after having written upwards of 1,000 songs by his own estimate. His death was confirmed by the French Culture Ministry. "Thank you, M. Aznavour," government spokesman Benjamin Griveaux tweeted. Often compared to Frank Sinatra, Aznavour started his career as a songwriter for Edith Piaf.
