    Philippine Airlines quits flying shark fins amid outcry

    Philippine Airlines (PAL) said Thursday it has stopped flying shark fin cargoes, joining a number of other Asia-Pacific carriers in taking a stand for marine conservation. The fins are used in shark fin soup, a much-valued delicacy in Hong Kong and China. Conservationists say booming demand for such fins has put pressure on the world's shark populations, prompting calls for measures to restrict their trade. Air New Zealand as well as South Korea's two largest airlines, Korean Air and Asiana, …

(UPDATE2) Senatorial candidate Francis "Chiz" Escudero is deemed to lose the vote that could matter most to him.

The re-electionist senator couldn't rely on girlfriend Heart Evangelista's vote come election day because the Kapuso actress isn't registered in Comelec (Commission on Elections) to begin with.

Love Marie Payawal Ongpauco, Heart's real name, is nowhere to be found when Yahoo! Southeast Asia checked Comelec's Precinct Finder.  The actress also admitted this to Yahoo! Southeast Asia.

"Yes I'm not [registered]. In fact I feel sad that I can't even vote for my boyfriend but since I dated Chiz I realized the importance and significance of the right to suffrage," the actress said in a text message sent through her manager.

"It's our chance to affect change in our country," she added, referring to elections.

It could be recalled that Heart made waves recently when she posed for the Election Issue of Esquire Philippines. The Kapuso actress was pictured wearing a white statement tank that screamed VOTE, a strong message to over 50 million registered Filipinos.

But it seems that Chiz no longer needs Heart's as he's already secured of another Senate seat, the latest SWS survey hinted. Chiz has always ranked between 1 and 3 in surveys, but the highly publicized feud with his "would be-in-laws" that made the headlines last March appears to be Chiz's bump in the road to 2016 presidential polls.

On Monday, the re-electionist senator is set to cast his vote in Sorsogon. It is not immediately known whether Heart will fulfill her girlfriend duties and accompany Chiz in the election precinct.
