Obama-era license aimed to let Iran convert money in dollars

WASHINGTON --- The Obama administration secretly sought to give Iran access --- albeit briefly --- to the US financial system by sidestepping sanctions kept in place after the 2015 nuclear deal, despite repeatedly telling Congress and the public it had no plans to do so. An investigation by Senate Republicans released Wednesday sheds light on the delicate balance the Obama administration sought to strike after the deal, as it worked to ensure Iran received its promised benefits without playing into the hands of the deal's opponents. Amid a tense political climate, Iran hawks in the US, Israel and elsewhere argued that the United States was giving far too much to Tehran and that...Keep on reading: Obama-era license aimed to let Iran convert money in dollars.....»»

We're higher than a motherf*cker." The "Your Face Sounds Familiar" video of Belarmino's performance was uploaded on YouTube, and netizens have since taken to Twitter after apparently hearing Belarmino say the curse words of the song during her pe...Keep on reading: Did a minor curse while singing in ‘Your Face Sounds Familiar: Kids”?.....»»

Spending the night with Harry Styles

"I'm having your baby, it's none of your business!" we screamed at Harry Styles at the Mall of Asia Arena as he did his trademark "daddy dance."   We were singing along "Kiwi," the closing song in his Manila gig. We wanted more but he already played his entire album, plus some "One Direction" songs and two covers. He even played unreleased tracks---"Medicine and "Anna"---so, basically, there's isn't any song left for an extended encore.   The info on Spotify's Behind the Lyrics bit says that on "Kiwi," "Harry goes mental for a girl who may or may not be from Oceania."   Maybe it's about a person, or maybe "Kiwi" is a multipurpose rock track: One, it e...Keep on reading: Spending the night with Harry Styles.....»»

BSP defends move to keep rates steady

The Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas is trying to strike a delicate balance between keeping prices of basic goods and services in check while maintaining an environment that will promote economic growth, according to a ranking official who defended the monetary authority's decision to keep key interest rates unchanged last month. In a statement e-mailed to reporters, BSP Deputy Governor Diwa Guinigundo stressed that the central bank remained "firmly committed" to its primary mandate of fighting inflation, amid questions among bankers and economists as to whether regulators should have acted sooner to cap the acceleration in price increases.

Cherry blossoms reach full bloom in Tokyo

TOKYO (AP) --- Japan's famous cherry blossoms have reached full bloom in Tokyo as spring-like weather descends on the nation's capital. Crowds flocked Monday to popular spots in much of Japan to enjoy the sea of delicate pink and white blooms. Some laid down picnic sheets at Shinjuku Gyoen, a former imperial garden in the heart of Tokyo, to enjoy "hanami", the custom of blossom viewing. Eating and drinking under the trees is a popular pastime. People young and old strolled beneath a canopy of cherry blossoms on a walkway along the Meguro River, also in central Tokyo. Some stopped to take selfies or close-ups of the blooms. "There are of course so many beautiful flowers, b...Keep on reading: Cherry blossoms reach full bloom in Tokyo.....»»

UAAP PRESS CORPS PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Kim Kianna Dy

The league table of the UAAP Season 80 women’s volleyball tournament has been nothing short of confusing. After Sunday’s action, there are two teams who share the second seed and another set of two teams who are the sixth seed but that doesn’t mean the third and fifth seeds are in stable ground. Far Eastern University, the no. 3 team, and no. 5 Adamson University can both either go up or down in the standings on one simple whim. Amid the confusion, however, is a glaring constant and it’s the defending champion De La Salle. The Lady Spikers were perfect this week and remained atop the league with an 8-2 record securing themselves of at least a playoff for one of the spots in the Final Four. And in the middle of that perfection is Kim Kianna Dy. La Salle’s belle of an opposite hitter was the offensive focal point in both of the Lady Spikers’ victories against University of the Philippines and Far Eastern University, on her way to winning the UAAP Press Corps Player of the Week. And although the wins against the Lady Maroons and the Lady Tamaraws are as far apart as Diliman and Sampaloc, Dy seemed to be a delicate pendulum in the middle of the chaos. Dy was solid in the Lady Spikers’ three-set sweep of University of the Philippines, 25-15, 25-19, 25-19, with 14 points, five of which were aces and four were blocks, in an uneventful game La Salle easily shrugged off. It was against the Lady Tamaraws’ however that Dy showed a little more of her magic when she put up 18 points in a five-set win, 25-17, 21-25, 16-25, 25-20, 15-5. Dy, despite starting dormant against FEU, rose up like a lotus in the middle of the dirge and scored four of La Salle’s 10 points, five came from the Lady Tamaraws’ errors, in the fifth set. “Yung mindset namin coming into the fifth set was dapat mauna kami, kasi FEU is very aggressive so pag dumikit mahihirapan kami,” said Dy. “So game plan talaga is unahan sila.” Dy’s scoring may not be considered outrageous as compared to Cherry Rondina, Jaja Santiago, and Diana Carlos—all three of which average more than 18 points per game with Rondina putting up 21.2 a game—but her elegant style saw her climb the scoring table in an impressive way. After scoring a total of 32 points this week, Dy went from 11th in the total points list to sixth leapfrogging Ateneo’s Jhoanna Maraguinot, teammate Majoy Baron, Adamson’s Jema Galanza and Mylene Paat, and University of the East’s Mary Ann Mendrez......»»
