    Philippines' largest telco sees costly, painful fight

    Philippine Long Distance Telephone, the country's largest telecommunications firm, said Tuesday it expects to spend nearly $1 billion in a "painful" fight to survive the consumer shift to digital from traditional phone services. The listed company said net profit for the first three months of the year was flat at 9.4 billion pesos ($211 million), and the full-year net profit would likely fall below the 34.1 billion pesos it posted last year. "It's either we pivot or we perish," PLDT chairman …

    Arrested TV crew had no permits, say Qataris

    Qatari authorities say they arrested a German television crew for filming a documentary without permission, not because of corruption allegations or the building conditions for the 2022 World Cup it exposed. "Sold Football - Sepp Blatter and the power of FIFA" was screened on Monday by German broadcaster ARD and highlights harsh conditions facing migrant workers building stadiums in Qatar. A FIFA executive committee member tells the documentary that around the time the World Cup was awarded a …

Re-electionist Senator Francis “Chiz” Escudero was feeling a little bit sentimental during Team PNoy’s miting de avance at the Amoranto Stadium in Quezon City on Friday evening.
 
In his speech before thousand of administration supporters, Escudero recalled all the issues hurled at him in the duration of the campaign period.
 
“Marami silang ibinato sa akin. Tinawag nila akong lasengero, babaero, bakla at lahat lahat na. Lahat na ng paratang naibato sa akin, pero isa lang ang aaminin ko: inlababo,” Escudero said, pertaining to a Pinoy slang of being in love.
 
Escudero issued the statement weeks after the feud between him and the parents of his girlfriend, Heart Evangelista, died down.
 
It could be recalled that the Ongpaucos, Evangelista’s parents, went public with their disapproval of Escudero, whom they find rude and arrogant.
 
But Escudero seemed bent in standing by his lady love, supporting his girlfriend in her decision to pose sexy in a magazine cover.
 
But he clarified his campaign team has nothing to do with the project to benefit his ranking in the senatorial race.
 
“Wala kaming kinalaman roon. It was decided by Esquire editors three months ago,” Escudero said.
 
In this month’s issue of Esquire magazine, Evangelista was wearing in skimpy white top with a bold font saying VOTE.

The magazine came out a few weeks after Escudero started sliding down the senatorial survey, losing his 2nd-place ranking in both Social Weather Stations (SWS) and Pulse Asia.

    China accuses Phl of violating South China Sea Code

    China has accused the Philippines of violating a 13-year-old informal code of conduct in the South China Sea with its building work on disputed islets, firing back again after repeated criticism of China’s own construction work. China and the 10-member Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) signed an agreement in 2002 to refrain from occupying uninhabited reefs and shoals in the sea, and from building new structures that would complicate disputes. In a statement released just before …
