Pacquiao vs. Mosley should draw more viewers
BEVERLY HILLS – Pound-for-pound champion and Philippine Congressman Manny Pacquiao
is back in town, his entourage doubled, the media contingent tripled and by the
time May 7 rolls around, he might become a household name in the US.

Inside the standing room only at the Beverly Hills Hotel Thursday, Pacquiao, sporting
a Justin Bieber-like haircut, traipsed into the room as flash bulbs went off all
around him.

It’s the kickoff event of the Pacquiao vs. Sugar Shane Mosley promotional tour
and from the number of the media present; the fight should be a good one. At least,
promoters hope in terms of pay-per-view numbers and audience reach.

Kenneth Cobonpue

Kenneth Cobonpue, World-class Furniture Designer
SEVERAL years ago, an international furniture design conference, the 2005 Gwangju
Design Biennale, was held in South Korea with the aim “to overcome the Western-oriented
modern design paradigm and to introduce the creative and diverse culture of Asia
to the world by combining East and West.” Significantly, a featured designer in
that event was multi-awarded Filipino Kenneth Cobonpue, who is certainly most
worthy of the honor.

Perhaps the best furniture designer in the Philippines and one of the best in the
world, Kenneth Cobonpue’s award-winning designs are very Asian, all carefully crafted
using natural and indigenous, locally-sourced materials from Cebu, Philippines,
his hometown.

LAUSD pushes for transitional kindergarten program
LOS ANGELES – Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) officials are pushing
a new pre-K pilot program for parents whose children are kindergarten age ready
but may not have the maturity or education preparedness to handle the rigors of
regular kindergarten.

During the last fall year, LAUSD implemented 36 pilot programs and began offering
Transition Kindergarten classes after California passed a law earlier last year
changing the age in which parents can enroll their children in kindergarten.

THE plot thickens.

Days after former AFP chief of staff Gen. Angelo Reyes took his own life on his
mother’s grave,

Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV revealed that Reyes was not “the powerful person” behind
ex-AFP comptroller and accused plunderer Gen. Carlos Garcia, without naming the
purported perpetrator.

However, in a recent conversation with one of Reyes’ emissaries prior to the January
27 senate hearing, Trillanes recalled that the emissary insinuated that Reyes could
be one of the “principals” of Garcia and military comptroller Jacinto Ligot.
