  • Saudi King cuts vacation short amid uproar from Cannes locals

    Saudi Arabian King Salman left the south of France for Morocco on Sunday, cutting short a planned three-week stay after a petition from some 150,000 residents over the closure of a public beach outside his villa. A Saudi source said King Salman had arrived in Morocco, saying this was part of his holiday program and had nothing to do with the media coverage that his visit had attracted. Philippe Castanet, a local French government official, added that about half of the king's 1,000-person entourage had left along with him.

  • Mad for Madonna even at P3K-P57K tickets

    Proof: Madonna’s Manila concert at SM Mall of Asia (MOA) Arena on Feb. 24, 2016, is more than six months away, but already, there is much ado about getting tickets now, “before they run out,” a midlevel corporate executive told the Inquirer. It took one week before the official announcement on July 29 that the Manila concert, part of Madonna’s “Rebel Heart” world tour, will have a second night on Feb. 25, 2016, although the Inquirer had reported it in advance (Madonna in Manila confirmed: 2 nights at MOA Arena, lifestyle.inquirer.net, July 1). The decision to hold back the announcement of the second night was a calculated move, sources say, to test if the Philippine market was ready for advance ticket sales, especially for a top concert act like Madonna.

  • Philippines to raise South China Sea despite Beijing's reluctance

    By Amy Sawitta Lefevre and Trinna Leong KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) - The Philippines will back a U.S. call to halt land reclamation in disputed areas of the South China Sea, the country's foreign minister said on Tuesday, despite China's insistence that the issue should not be raised at an upcoming meeting.

Del Rosario added that the Philippines planned to discuss the topic at the 48th ASEAN Foreign Ministers Meeting, which kicked off in Kuala Lumpur on Tuesday.

  • Some Americans refuse to give up on Confederate flag

    Many Americans assumed the Confederate flag was retired for good after governors in South Carolina and Alabama removed it from their statehouses this summer and presidential candidates from both parties declared it too divisive for official display. "You can't take it out on the flag — the flag had nothing to do with it," said Ralph Chronister, who felt inspired to dig out his old Confederate flag, which is decorated with a bald eagle, and hang it from his weather-beaten front porch on a heavily traveled street in Hanover, Pennsylvania. An uncomfortable tolerance of the Confederate flag in mainstream society was upended in June when photos circulated on the Internet revealing that a young white racist charged with killing nine black churchgoers in Charleston, South Carolina, had posed with the Confederate symbol.

  • One of the world's strangest border disputes is officially over

    The border dispute surrounding 162 Indian and Bangladeshi enclaves ended Saturday at one minute past midnight, Adam Taylor of The Washington Post reports. The two countries switched sovereignty over 111 enclaves in Bangladesh and 51 in India after a border agreement struck in June, the AFP reports, ending a 68-year-old dispute affecting the lives of over 50,000 people. No one is sure exactly how this odd border dispute came to be: Some say it was the result of a chess game, while others says it was because of an ink spill on a map by a drunken British colonial.

  • Amazon drama imagines a conquered America

    Rufus Sewell said his first reaction to playing a post-World War II Nazi in the new Amazon drama "The Man in the High Castle" was reluctance. In the pilot script, "you didn't see a lot of him outside strutting up and down corridors and torturing people," Sewell told a TV critics' meeting Monday. In this alternate history, Sewell's John Smith is an "all-American hero," said Swell ("Killing Jesus," ''The Pillars of the Earth").

  • Iran's Ahmadinejad seeks political comeback

    Iran's former President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has launched a political campaign ahead of February's parliamentary elections in what could prove a challenge to the moderates behind a landmark nuclear agreement reached last month. Few expect a rerun of Ahmadinejad's surprise victory in the 2005 elections, which kicked off an eight-year presidency marked by confrontation with the West, incendiary rhetoric toward Israel and refusal to compromise on the disputed nuclear program. Many former allies have turned on Ahmadinejad, and two of his former vice presidents have been jailed for corruption.

  • Stephen Curry's shoe deal with Under Armour is a total steal

    Stephen Curry's deal with Under Armour became even more of a bargain when it broke that Adidas is offering James Harden $200 million in an attempt to steal him from Nike. While these kinds of offers can be the norm for NBA superstars — according to Forbes, Kevin Durant signed a 10-year extension with Nike worth as much as $300 million with royalties and Adidas gave Derrick Rose a 13-year, $185 million deal — Curry's deal with Under Armour looks paltry in comparison.
