    NEW YORK -- Apple CEO Tim Cook's declaration that he's "proud to be gay" wasn't exactly news in Silicon Valley, where his sexual orientation was no secret. But advocates say that given Apple's immense reach and visibility, his coming-out could help change attitudes in workplaces across America. The 53-year-old successor to Steve Jobs made the announcement in an essay published Thursday by Bloomberg Businessweek. He is the highest-profile US business executive to publicly acknowledge that he's gay.

They said the airline and the government had been negligent and failed to take all due measures to ensure a safe flight.

  • Why Filipino-Americans Need to Vote Democratic on November 4

    29 Oct 2014 | 5:00 pm
    Since 1620 when the pilgrims landed on Plymouth Rock, people the world over have migrated to America in search of a better life. Filipinos are no exception. In the '70s and '80s Filipinos who were able to left for the U.S. to escape the tyranny of the Marcos regime; today they leave is to escape the poverty and the lack of opportunity in their homeland. Whatever the reason, Filipino migrants quickly shed their old habits and attitudes and embrace American culture. And for the most part, those who—as former President Bill Clinton put it—"work hard and play by the rules" are amply rewarded…

    The United States and Philippine governments share the blame for the tragedy. Two young lives needlessly destroyed: the first, a young Filipino transgender found strangled inside a motel bathroom; the second a teenaged American serviceman accused of murder.

    THERE MIGHT very well be a conspiracy afoot to prevent the election of Vice-President Jejomar Binay to the Presidency in 2016. It doesn’t release Binay from the responsibility of credibly answering the accusations that have been hurled against him. But neither should it prevent the media from using the opportunity to provide the public the information and analysis it needs to encourage citizen action against corruption. The 2016 elections may be all of nineteen months away, but no one will seriously challenge the probability that what’s happening to Binay is a pre-emptive strike intended…

    Today is the 70th anniversary of the fulfillment of General Douglas MacArthur’s pledge of “I shall return” after being forced out of the Philippines by the Imperial Japanese Army during World War II. On October 20, 1944, MacArthur, together with Philippine Commonwealth President Sergio Osmeña, landed at Palo, Leyte on a site designated by the Americans as “Red Beach”. This historic moment marked the beginning of the liberation of the Philippines from the Japanese. A standard view of the Leyte memorial showing larger-than-life statues of General MacArthur and…

  • Diosdado Macapagal Bridge

    2 Aug 2014 | 12:07 am
    Touted as the longest bridge in Mindanao with a length of 907 meters, the Diosdado Macapagal Bridge is one of the top tourist attractions in Butuan City with its raw and elegant design. Similar to the previously-featured Marcelo B. Fernan Bridge in Cebu, the Diosdado Macapagal Bridge is a cable-stayed bridge except that it has a single tower instead of Fernan Bridge’s pair. I’m also guessing that Diosdado Macapagal Bridge is also the tallest bridge in Mindanao, if not the whole country.

    The Halloween Trick or Treat Tradition 20 years ago is a post from: A Filipina Mom Blogger What happened to Halloween day? Why is Trick or Treat celebrated way earlier than October 31? Where is the fun in moving it to an earlier date? Those were some of the questions my kids asked me in 2006. My three children celebrated Trick or Treat only on October 31 whether it was a weekday or weekend. Then that all changed when our village changed the date because it was just convenient for them to facilitate the kids in costume. My kids often say that it is like moving Christmas day to December 20.

For example, in the recent breach of mass retailer Target, the problem was discovered not by the company or any of its customers, but instead by a third-party security agency charged with monitoring the network. The fact that so few organizations actually catch suspicious or criminal activity on their networks highlights a common problem today: Most companies treat anything within the network as…

    Indulgence by Irene's new cheesecake baby...I've featured every cheesecake flavor made by Irene, a very talented home baker who's quickly making a name for herself in Manila's dessert scene. Indeed, Indulgence by Irene has come a long way from baking these goods for friends and for personal consumption, to making them available for ordering and in bazaars so that more people can get a taste of why it is hailed as one of Manila's best cheesecakes.Among her four available variants---Queso de Bola, Chocnut, Tablea, and Ube---I was enamored with the QDB and Ube, both rich, utterly creamy, and…

    Eating through the archipelago, one month at a time, one bite at a time.The hard thing about being a country made up of thousands of islands is that you can't just go to far-off provinces or cities on a whim. You'd either have to travel by plane or by boat, thereby making it harder for you to travel as often as you'd want to. Among other things, it's the delicious cuisine from the different regions that you'd most likely miss out on.Enter Filipino food festivals such as what Midas Café is currently hosting.

    This article is a guest post from regular contributor Motzie Dapul. It’s no real surprise to find some of the worst examples of allegedly “human” behavior in the comments sections of Filipino news articles. It seems as though we’ve accepted the reality of bad-grammar internet criminals who are the ultimate examples of internet trolls, people who disregard humane and decent behavior and call it a joke. But as with all things, there will always be a division of opinions, arguments on the internet, dissent among the ranks of commenters everywhere. Keeping this in mind, I delved…

    This is a guest article from regular contributor M. Emmanuel Canlas. I’ve gotten my legs waxed before. So, I pretty much know how the waxing session will go. But, as it was my first time getting a Boyzilian wax (otherwise known as a “Male Brazilian” or a “Brozilian” wax), it was totally nerve-wracking. It felt like I was getting circumcised again. At the back of my head, I asked myself, “Why did I say yes to this again?” Oh yeah, a dare — great. The reception area of The Body Spa & Waxing Lounge. The ladies of The Body Spa and Waxing Lounge…

    We always pass by this restaurant in White Plains whenever we go to our favorite spa, The Body Spa and Waxing Lounge (ahem), and never really gave it much thought until a week ago. Called Basil, it used to be one of those places which sold ornamental plants along White Plains, but which has since been converted into a beautiful Thai restaurant. We strongly recommend this place if you’re in the area and looking for good Thai food. The interiors are dark and lovely, with a small pond in the corner, candles, Thai-inspired decor, and a fairly intimidating wall of earth, roots and plants…
