Netflix’s new teen romantic comedy Sierra Burgess Is a Loser isn’t exactly the modern retelling of Cyrano de Bergerac it makes itself out to be. It borrows basic elements from that 19th-century Edmond Rostand play, but it’s more fairy tale than tragic romance. The movie follows the bookish and unpopular ........»»

What it was like at ‘Madre Faura,’ with Tito Guingona et al.

Another rally? We'll be there! I'm proud to say my husband and I haven't missed a single major protest rally since Rodrigo Duterte became president. This in itself is a feat, considering our very senior years, and how many there have been in just two years. We definitely are old warriors, older in fact than our parents were in 1986.
