STORY: An unofficial tally by the election commission showed Marcos, 64, was close to passing the required 27.5 million votes to secure a majority in a presidential election for the first time since the end of his father's 1965-1986 rule.The count makes almost certain a previously unthinkable return to power of the Marcos family, 36 years after its humiliating retreat into exile after being toppled in a "people power" uprising.Despite its fall from grace, the Marcos family returned from exile in the 1990s and has since been a powerful force in politics, retaining its influence with vast wealth and far-reaching connections.Marcos Jr has served as a governor, congressman and senator, his sister, Imee, is currently a senator and mother Imelda, the influential power-broker and widow of the late dictator, served four terms in the House of Representatives.

Social media posts and online articles claim that a law in Canada allows the government to take away custody if a parent rejects a child's gender identity. This is misleading; the act referenced is provincial, not federal, and while it expanded Ontario's definition of child welfare, refusal of a child's gender identity alone will not cause parents to lose custody, according to the government and independent experts.Facebook and Instagram posts from April 2022 circulated a screenshot of an Octobe

I write this while I am preparing to go to my polling precinct to vote. Frankly, I dread having to endure another six years of uncertainty. I say the US is more fortunate because it finally ended the rule of Donald Trump and everything that he represented. With Joe Biden winning the presidency, US politics has stabilized. I wish the same would happen in the Philippines with a win by the forces of liberal democracy in the national elections.Another six years of Duterterism, which is represented i
