    VATICAN CITY -- Pope Francis is marking the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of World War I with an impassioned plea for people to "not repeat the mistakes of the past," urging them to embrace dialogue to overcome conflicts. Francis cited current warfare between Israelis and Palestinians, as well as in Iraq and in Ukraine. He told pilgrims and tourists in St. Peter's Square Sunday that he was thinking of children — killed, maimed or orphaned by war — who "for toys, have the debris of war." "I beg you, stop.

    29 Jun 2014 | 5:00 pm
    For those who have been following the Janet Lim-Napoles PDAF/NGO* scandal these past months, it is easy to get caught up in all the rhetoric—the words and phrases repeated day after day. Words like "ten billion" or "fifteen billion" have turned into something akin to "gray" background noise. Words devoid of any real meaning or significance. So let us try to put back some meaning into those trite and often-repeated phrases in order to better understand some of the far-reaching ramifications of Napoles' actions ...

    By David Brunnstrom WASHINGTON (Reuters) - If evacuating U.S. embassy staff from Libya was perilous - three F-16 fighters and Marines in Osprey aircraft flew overhead a road convoy from Tripoli to Tunisia - sending them back in could be politically hazardous for President Barack Obama. U.S. diplomats work in dangerous places such as Baghdad and Kabul, but the ghosts of Benghazi hang over the U.S. presence in Libya after an attack on a U.S. mission in the eastern Libyan city in 2012 that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans.     Republicans, preparing to battle…

    Batteries are one of the major concerns of mobile users today. We want devices with powerful processors and bright displays but the more capable our phones are, the more they suck power from their batteries. Hopefully, these concerns will soon be addressed thanks to researchers who have developed a new lithium battery that could last longer. Lithium ion batteries (the ones inside your smartphones right now) are currently limited and in fact, leave out a large amount of untapped energy. What researchers from Stanford did was to create a technique that harnesses better lithium cells. To get…

    The Punta Cruz Watchtower is the primary symbol of the town of Maribojoc, Bohol and is found on both the seal and flag of the town.

    The first cable waterpark I’ve featured here on Vista Pinas is the famous Camsur Watersports Complex in Camarines Sur. But if you want your fix of watersports but don’t have the means to go to Bicol, there are actually several other cable waterparks elsewhere in the country. One of them is the Deca Wakeboard Park (official website) located in Barangay Tacunan in Davao City.

Please don’t get me wrong, I am not judging how the kids these days behave. This article will merely point out the things we do, in my opinion as a parent and as a teacher, that may hinder the way our children grow up the way we want them to.

    "I do not like them, Sam-I-Am. I do not like green eggs and ham." Thanks to Dr. Seuss’ famous book, all boys named Sam grew up being called “Sam I am” on a regular basis, but for me it was a little worse. Why? My full name is Sam Nam which also rhymes with “I am” and that extraordinary coincidence excited my childhood friends to end. “Sam Nam I am! I am Sam Nam!”, they would chant over and over. As an adult I am comfortable with the novelty of my rhyme-laden name and, when I couldn’t’ find a consistent handle for my social media accounts,…

  • Eskabo Daan: Defanging the Snake

    Eskabo Daan
    2 Jul 2014 | 12:29 am
    “Defanging the Snake” is an expression used to articulate the perception in Filipino Martial Arts (FMA). It means to neutralize the immediate threat coming towards you whether with a kick, punch, head-butt, knife or stick. Once the snake is defanged, the snake is deemed powerless and unable to defend itself. The Abanico and Gunting are staple techniques in Filipino Martial Arts that serves this purpose.

    Of sushi, teppanyaki, and... papaya?!?Not one to say no to a sushi and sashimi meal, I was pretty excited to try Yanagi at Midas Hotel. Though not as big as other nearby hotels, stepping into the lobby alone provides a moment of awe as your eyes internally debate on what to devour first. The old Hyatt Regency has been revamped into a modern elegant boutique casino hotel that is both classy and contemporary.To the left is the concierge with a backdrop matching that of the lounge's located across the room: towering shelves housing orange boxes and silver decor.

    Of burgers, steaks, and pancakes...Before I even had the chance to visit Malcolm's Deli, they've renovated the place. I have no idea what it looks like before, though gazing at it for the first time, I'm reminded of a gentlemen's club with its all dark wood and leather (made from skin of Wagyu cattle) interiors -- with a deli, that is.They have these upright chillers filled with various rare finds: house made buttermilk, jars of flavored cheese, Fog City Creamery ice cream, and Kitayama Wagyu beef. Choose your preferred cut, and you can have them cook and serve it to you for the retail price…

  • Restaurant Round-Up: A Controversial Burger Joint And A Popular Ramen House

    Von Bryan Cuerpo
    24 Jul 2014 | 9:05 pm
    For this review, we’re covering a controversial burger joint and a popular ramen house. 1. Cali Burger In certain foodie circles, it’s become de rigeur to bash Cali Burger, which is mostly because of a really bad marketing misstep. It’s not a secret, and in fact Cali Burger proudly admits, that it is “heavily-inspired” by the popular In-N-Out burger chain in the United States. In fact, if you look at the old food containers of Cali Burger, you’d notice that they even used to use In-N-Out‘s tagline “Quality You Can Taste”. This was a…

    I just caught PETA’s Rak of Aegis over the weekend and immediately fell in love with the play. So much so, in fact, that I’m planning to catch it again sometime in August. If you haven’t seen it yet, you absolutely need to buy tickets now because this is a show you would not want to miss. An overview: the story happens in Barangay Venizia, which has been submerged in flood waters for two months. It centers on Aileen, a talented young singer who believes that her family’s best ticket out of poverty is for her to become a Youtube sensation. This eventually happens, brought about by a…
  • Trendy Breakfast Place in Rockwell Disappoints

    Hatch 22 Cafe & Bakery has beautiful interiors, which paired well with what I think is a brilliant concept: a trendy, upscale breakfast restaurant that serves freshly-made bread, single origin coffee, handcrafted cocktails, and delicious comfort food. I thought, “like Wildflour, except more hip”. Too bad then that the experience we had fell short of the expectations I had in my head. Let’s start with the good part. The restaurant is gorgeous, and does a lot of things right, design-wise. It’s industrial but elegant, upscale but casual, modern but warm. It’s the type of place that…
