T-Mobile recently submitted a filing with the FCC to ask for an extension on the agreement that’s allowing T-Mo to use ... [read full article]

Robert Mugabe’s Lingering ‘Good’ Legacy?

He was Africa’s archetypal icon of post-colonial totalitarianism. Charismatic. Educated. Feared. Endowed with racist tribal arrogance. Unforgiving. 37 years of iron-fisted rule, Mugabe plundered all known indices of democratic decency. He ruthlessly suppressed opposition – incarcerating its leaders, mass-murdering their supporters. He habitually insulted Western leaders, decimated private property rights. Under his rule, cronies blossomed as inflation broke all post World War 2 records. By the time he was deposed in a ‘decent’ military coup, Zimbabwe was in a tailspin of obscene poverty. Despised by the international community, loathed by liberals and social democrats alike.

Unemployment insurance in Filipino workers’ future?

"For now, Filipino workers rendered jobless by COVID-19 have to settle for Social Amelioration Program payments."   The recently concluded contest for the position of Democratic Party candidate in this year’s US Presidential election was largely fought, as far as the leading candidates were concerned, along ideological lines. Two of the candidates – Sen. Bernie Sanders and Sen. Elizabeth Warren – pitched ‘progressive’ (read: socialistic) ideas to the Democratic faithful, while another candidate, former Vice-President Joe Biden, stayed, safely, left of center. Sanders and Warren advocated Federal government intervention in, among other things, the health care and education sectors via subsidies and grants. Biden moved very cautiously in that direction.

Catholic priests lift spirits during Mass with brilliant Irish dancing routine

A TRIO of Catholic priests have found a way to lift spirits during Mass with a spot of Irish dancing.
