TOKYO ― Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte sought to assure Japan on Wednesday that his high-profile visit to China last week was about economics, not security, and vowed to stand on Tokyo’s side over the disputed South China Sea when the time came. Earlier in the day, Duterte reiterated his harsh words for long-time ally Washington, saying he might end defense treaties
It looks like billions of dollars in wireless data charges are being added to customers’ wireless bills, some causing “overages”; i.e.; when a customer goes over their monthly data usage, known as the ‘data cap’, they can be charged a fee, or have to buy more expensive data or have a slow down of their service, which is called ‘throttling’. Many customers, it appears, purchase additional ‘gigs’ to avoid this. Point of fact, Verizon, et al., have made customer ignorance a new profit center.
Thanks to Adrian, my new trainer at Equinox, I couldn’t walk today, which is why I’m writing you from my bathtub. I’m sure you would laugh if you could see me — with a rose petal face mask on, skidding around as if I was ice-skating on my rear end.

While principal organizers of the upcoming Royal Society meeting on a paradigm shift to a more sublime evolutionary synthesis are mum about exactly who’s invited to speak, I’ve compiled a list of likely presenters — which follows — based on a range of sources. The meeting scheduled for November 7-9 is a public one, co-sponsored by the British Academy for the humanities and social sciences. Prime movers of the event are: Oxford physiologist and Royal Society Fellow, Denis Noble — who has already made his case on this page for replacing the modern synthesis; Sir Patrick Bateson , FRS, who was knighted by Queen Elizabeth in 2003 for his service to biology and currently serves as president of the Zoological Society of London; Nancy Cartwright, Lady Hampshire , a University of Durham/University of California-San Diego philosopher of science and Fellow of the British Academy; John Dupré , a philosopher of biology at the University of Exeter whose interest is in the “processes of life” and their relevance to society; and Kevin Laland , whose research focus at the University of St.

Having come of age during the Clinton era, I always had a soft spot for Chelsea Clinton. She wasn’t much younger than I was, so to watch her receive heartless slights and vicious criticisms about her appearance and pubescent awkwardness always hit home. Even though I didn’t have a father who was the leader of the free world, I could viscerally relate to Chelsea’s desire to be left alone

As our nation celebrates a day dedicated to the social and economic achievements of our labor force, remember that these advancements often stem from disputes. In fact, when considering the biggest sports law issues making news lately, virtually all of them derive from disagreements between employees and employers.
Tunisia has until now inspired the region and the rest of the world by taking the democratic path after its 2011 revolution . But the current dysfunction of the political system, the deep poverty in the country’s marginalized rural interior and the brutality of extremism are tying a vicious knot that threatens to destroy the transitional process. With the government’s proposed ” Reconciliation Bill ,” the promises of the revolution are in danger of being crushed
Genuine political reform is no easy feat, especially in a country like the Philippines, which has been dominated by a fairly coherent oligarchy for much of recent history. Since many powerful forces have a stake in preserving the status quo, real change demands extraordinary leadership, an element of luck, popular support, and immeasurable time and energy. In a nation where forgiveness and forgetfulness are often interchangeable, the political elite — despite its numerous mishaps and predatory behavior under various colonial masters in the past and, later, sovereign governments — has managed to constantly rehabilitate its reputation , avoid full accountability, and prevent the kind of political purges, which jolted revolutionary France and reshuffled the political order in many other European, Asian, and Latin American nations in the following centuries.
