MEGHAN Markle yesterday watched Prince Philip's funeral in the US while Harry attended the service - and reunited with brother William. The Duchess of Sussex , 39, has remained in the US on doctor's advice while Prince Harry made the 5,400-mile trip to the UK ahead of today's funeral.

THE funeral service for the Duke of Edinburgh has taken place, with the final farewell "the saddest day" for Her Majesty, the Queen. Due to Covid restrictions the Queen was forced to sit alone inside Windsor Castle's St George's Chapel as she lead the Royal Family in mourning at the funeral of her beloved husband, the Duke of Edinburgh . Dressed in a face mask and in sombre black, it was the first time the monarch, grieving for her devoted companion of 73 years, has been officially seen in public since Philip died eight days ago. And the Duke's coffin was lowered into the Royal Vault at St George's Chapel - and was broadcast live for the first time in history. Accompanied by her loyal lady-in-waiting Lady Susan Hussey, the Queen made her way from the Sovereign's Entrance in the State Bentley, as the national anthem was played, to join the solemn funeral procession. Philip's coffin, draped in his striking 12ft personal standard and decorated with a wreath of flowers … [Read more...] about Duke of Edinburgh funeral updates LIVE: Queen leaves service followed by Charles, William and Harry after ‘saddest day’
I. It’s 1995, and I’m in seventh-grade keyboarding class. The school computer lab has clunky greige Apple computers loaded with Mavis Beacon software. We dutifully practice placing our fingers on the “home row”: the left hand on ASDF , right on JKL; . We practice typing short words, then sentences, aiming for accuracy and speed while keeping those fingers on the home row. This goes on once a week for three months. The class is easy. I get a decent grade. Then we switch to Health class, which is much more exciting because it talks about s-e-x. Because it’s 1995, health class spends a lot of time teaching about contraceptive foam and the sponge. Neither the sponge nor the home row method will serve me in my adult life. II. It’s the week that vaccines become available to New Yorkers age 30+, and I’m venting to friends in a group chat that I haven’t been able to book an appointment online yet. “That’s because Katie is probably typing in that she lives in BROKOLYN NWE … [Read more...] about Why Am I Sp Bad At Typign?
It’s interesting, and makes one proud to be a Filipino, how the younger generations are developing an interest for Baybayin, the ancient Tagalog script that our pre-Hispanic ancestors used in their writings. Some people interchangeably use Baybayin and Alibata. But the two terms are different and according to Baybayin scholar Norman delos Santos, Alibata is different and refers to the one invented in the early 20th century by Paul Versoza. In an article by modernfilipina.ph, it was pointed out that historians refer to the script as Baybayin. William Henry Scott, in his book “Barangay: Sixteenth-Century Philippine Culture and Society,” described Baybayin as the indigenous Tagalog script. Meanwhile, the online version of the UP Diksiyunaryong Filipino also does not acknowledge Alibata, which it defines as “alpabetong Arabic tulad ng pagkakakilala sa Silangan,” as the official name of the script, while mentioning that Baybayin, is the “sinaunang alpabeto ng mga Filipino,” the … [Read more...] about Baybayin goes manga
Perhaps, he was the first Filipino “celebrity” priest — a TV star sans the glamor and luxuries of show business. But he was very rich with the charism of preaching. In the 1980s, Fr. Erasmo “Sonny” Ramirez, OP rose to become a media icon. Unlike celebrities today who are launched as idols, Fr. Sonny became popular because he brought the words of Christ through mass media. For one, having belonged to the Order of Preachers, Fr. Sonny very well knew the tradition of “Siete Palabras” (Seven Last Words) during the Lenten season. In 1984, he made a breakthrough. He delivered the first Siete Palabras homilies for a TV special of the Channel 9 program “Sharing in the City.” Its producer was Banahaw Broadcast Inc. Fr. Sonny was a graduate of the esteemed Drama and Theater Arts program of the Colegio de San Juan de Letrán (also alma mater to National Artist for Theater and Literature Rolando Tinio). He could have advised the production of scripted tearjerkers for the Siete Palabras, but … [Read more...] about Remembering Fr. Sonny of the Order of Preachers
