    US billionaire says WWII Japanese ship found in Philippines

    Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen said Wednesday he had found one of Japan's biggest and most famous battleships on a Philippine seabed, some 70 years after American forces sank it during World War II. Excited historians likened the discovery, if verified, to finding the Titanic, as they hailed the American billionaire for his high-tech mission that apparently succeeded after so many failed search attempts by others. Allen posted photos and video online of parts of what he said was the …

    Philippines' Aquino promises police commandos extra resources after …

    Philippine President Benigno Aquino promised police commandos better extra resources on Wednesday, weeks after 44 commandos were killed in a clash with Muslim rebels, but declined to answer questions about the botched raid, a senior officer said. On Jan. 25, police commandos sneaked into a southern rebel area to "neutralise" Zulkifli bin Hir, alias Marwan, an al Qaeda-linked bomb maker with a $5 million U.S. bounty on his head. The mission went disastrously wrong for the government when …

    In this photo by Bullit Marquez, a boy sits on pavement while his family retrieves items from their burned home Tuesday following an overnight fire that destroyed a slum-dwellers community in Manila, Philippines. No casualties were reported in the 9-hour fire that burned more than a thousand homes and left at least 3,000 families homeless. The Bureau of Fire and Protection was still investigating the cause of the fire. But in Manila's poorest neighborhoods, fires often are caused by poor wiring …

Insecurity.
 
This is the reason why Kapamilya heartthrob Coco Martin supposedly refuses to campaign for a candidate running under the administration’s Team PNoy in their out of town rallies.

Team PNoy spokesperson Federico Romero “Miro” Quimbo admits they are having a hard time getting Martin to personally campaign for Aurora Rep. Juan Edgardo “Sonny” Angara.
 
“We can’t get Coco Martin anymore. His manager says he gets insecure in the presence of Sonny Angara,” Quimbo quipped.
 
“Because the crowd can’t tell which of them is Juan de la Cruz,” he said in jest.
 
Martin, who stars in primetime TV series Juan de la Cruz in ABS-CBN, has earlier endorsed the candidacy of Angara, the son of Senator Edgardo Angara who is running under the administration’s slate.
 
Denying he was paid to endorse the three-term congressman, Martin himself said he believes the candidate’s advocacies for education, health, employment and senior citizens.
 
Angara, who has been placing last in the winning circle in recent senatorial surveys like Pulse Asia and Social Weather Stations, admitted getting Martin to join him on stage may give his candidacy a boost.

“It’s not a must-do, but we may consider it, if he’s available.  But it’s really very hard to schedule with these celebrities,” Angara said.
 
Aside from Martin, ABS-CBN talents Sarah Geronimo and Julia Montes are also helping out Angara in his bid for the Senate.
 
The three Kapamilya talents have already appeared in Angara's television ads.
