THE House Committee on Agriculture and Food reprimanded the lawyer of Lilia "Leah" Cruz, dubbed as the "Sibuyas (Onion) Queen," for not presenting his client at the resumption of the panel's inquiry on Monday.

Elpidio Barzaga Jr. took Tegio to task for reasoning that Cruz's commitment was more important than the congressional inquiry.

PARIS: Kylian Mbappe reached 200 goals for Paris Saint-Germain to become the club's joint all-time top scorer as the France superstar netted twice in his side's 3-0 win over Ligue 1 title rivals Marseille on Sunday. Mbappe scored both his goals at the Velodrome from Lionel Messi assists and in between he set up the Argentine for PSG's other goal as they moved eight points clear at the top of the table. Mbappe's brace took him to a double century of goals for PSG in just short of 250 appearances since signing from Monaco in 2017. Tonight he has equalled Edinson Cavani's magnificent record and he will obviously go on to beat it. Today it was the better team who won," said Marseille coach Igor Tudor, who admitted Mbappe was too hot to handle.

MOSCOW — President Vladimir Putin cast the confrontation with the West over the Ukraine war as an existential battle for the survival of Russia and the Russian people – and said he was forced to take into account Nato’s nuclear capabilities. The Nato and the West dismiss such narrative, saying their objective is to help Ukraine defend itself against an unprovoked attack. Putin said Russia would only resume discussion once French and British nuclear weapons were also taken into account. Russia, which inherited the Soviet Union’s nuclear weapons, has the world’s biggest store of nuclear warheads. Putin said the biggest result of the past year was the unity of the Russian people.

Growing old and growing upOne morning I saw a news headline: “US Social Security’s full retirement age moves to 67.” Though I enjoy my senior citizen card, I still keep myself productive, working out and doing work. And here are the advantages of growing up and growing old. Growing old is not an option, but growing up is. Perhaps these “gurus” have grown old but have not grown up. Growing old is not the same as growing up.

Circumventing the lawMinority shareholders of a public company who may not agree to the entry of new investors into the company are given a chance to exit the firm via what is known as the mandatory tender offer.
