Cardi B slams pro-border wall commentator in height of US gov’t shutdown

Cardi B found herself in a heated Twitter exchange with conservative commentator Tomi Lahren after the latter poked fun at the "Bodak Yellow" rapper for sharing her opinions on the United States' government shutdown. The government shutdown began on December 2018 after Trump and Democrats failed to reach a budget agreement when it came to his demands for his $5.7 billion U.S.-Mexico border wall, meant to ward off immigrants. The impact of the shutdown has been felt throughout the country, as 800,000 federal workers missed their pay checks on Jan. 11, relying instead on various GoFundMe pages run by private citizens to pay for rent, food and other needs.

China population rises 15.23 million in 2018, but rate slows

BEIJING --- China's population rose by 15.23 million people in 2018, marking a continued decrease in the growth rate of the world's most populous nation. Numbers released by the National Bureau of Statistics on Monday put the population at 1.395 billion in 2018, marking a growth rate of 3.81 percent over the previous year. The total included 30 million more men than women, considered a long-time outcome of the recently abandoned one-child policy under which boys were favored over girls for cultural reasons. The government estimates China's population will peak at 1.442 billion in 2029 before beginning to decline the year after.

PBA: Standhardinger on SMB: “When we play hard, it’s hard to beat us“

The real San Miguel finally showed up. After a shock loss to Columbian to start their 2019 Philippine Cup title defense, the Beermen recovered rather quickly, pummeling Brgy. Ginebra Sunday at the Big Dome. While San Miguel once again got a dose of good old NSD late in the fourth period, the Beermen were dominant almost throughout, leading by as many as 23 points. The shock loss to the Dyip didn’t necessarily serve as a wake up call for San Miguel according to forward Christian Standhardinger. It’s just that when the Beermen are playing at least just near to their full potential, they’re almost pretty impossible to stop. They played well enough Sunday and they took down one of their chief contenders to the title. “I don’t know about a wake up call,” Standhardinger, who led all scorers with 26 points, said after the game. “I’m just happy we played good today and we played hard. When we play hard, it’s hard to beat us,” he added. Now missing Alex Cabagnot and Terrence Romeo to injury, the Beermen still had more than enough star power to dominate. And when the remaining stars, which included him with guards Chris Ross and Marcio Lassiter, found their mark against the Gin Kings... well the result speaks for itself. “It was good, as you saw, everyone played hard,” Standhardinger said. “Like I said, when we go hard, it’s hard to stop us. But we do have to go hard everytime andd we have to adjust and sacrifice for the team,” he added.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

ABL: New guys help Alab Pilipinas re-assert mastery over Thais

The cast of characters may have changed, but it was the same old story as Alab Pilipinas and Thailand’s Mono met for the first time in the 2018-2019 Asean Basketball League. Riding Renaldo Balkman and new guys PJ Ramos and Ethan Alvano in the endgame, the Filipinos got the better of the visiting Vampire once more in a thrilling 110-100 triumph in overtime on Sunday at the Sta. Rosa Multi-Purpose Complex. A season ago, the Philippines bested the Thais for the championship. Just like that time, Balkman and Ray Parks Jr. played big roles for Alab in this one. Only, they also had newcomers Ramos, Alvano, and Caelan Tiongson right there with them. In fact, it was Balkman, Alvano, and Ramos who got together for the 12-7 run that increased a one-point edge to a 102-96 lead inside the last two minutes in overtime. Parks Jr.’s floater then put the icing on the cake that was the Filipinos’ eighth win in 10 games. It was also their first back-to-back wins in the new year which had seen them go through struggles. With the gutsy win, though, the Philippines has now strengthened its stranglehold on the league lead. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»
