Cedric Lee asks Sandiganbayan to defer his warrant of arrest

Businessman Cedric Lee on Tuesday asked the Third Division of the anti-graft court Sandiganbayan to defer the issuance of an arrest warrant against him for his graft and malversation cases in connection with the alleged anomalous release of local funds for a public market project. In a motion for judicial determination of probable cause filed before the Third Division, Lee said he was denied due process by the Office of the Ombudsman when it conducted its preliminary investigation on the complaint, which eventually led to the filing of the graft and malversation cases against him and former Mariveles, Bataan Mayor Angel Peliglorio Jr. Based on the complaint filed by the Ombudsman with the Sandiganbayan last week, the local government of Mariveles during the term of Peliglorio as mayor, released some P23 million to Lee's construction firm Izumo Contractors, Inc. in 2005. The money was meant for the construction of a public market. The Ombudsman said that based on its investigation, the fund was released to Izumo "even without procedural safeguards and guarantee of performance,” and that the project has "never commenced". “The need of holding in abeyance the issuance of warrant of arrest and/or recalling the warrants of arrest issued by this Honorable Court is a matter of due process which was denied to the accused-movants. It is a question of fundamental justice,” Lee said in his motion. Lee asked the court to first conduct a reinvestigation of ...  

With a month to go, Microsoft issues new Windows 10 build with Edge browser ...

Microsoft on Monday released another build of Windows 10, the first with the Edge browser branding.With build 10158, Microsoft marked the one-month countdown to the final code launch on July 29.Prominent in 10158 -- which was issued only to testers on the "Fast" ring of Windows Insider -- is Microsoft Edge, the OS's new browser. "The Microsoft Edge branding is now included," wrote Gabriel Aul, engineering general manager for Microsoft's operating system group, on a Monday blog.Microsoft introduced the Edge nameplate in April after referring to the browser for several months by its code name, Project Spartan. Edge is the successor to Internet Explorer (IE), particularly IE11, and will be the default browser in Windows 10 on all devices, from PCs to smartphones. IE11, however, will continue to be packaged with the new OS on desktops, notebooks, 2-in-1s and larger tablets to provide legacy support for enterprises that run line-of-business Web apps and sites requiring the older browser.The name change demands some work on the part of users, who must first back up bookmarks previously saved in Spartan, then restore those and password-retaining cookies, said Aul.Microsoft also made several modifications to the browser with the debut of the Edge moniker, including an optional Home button, a password manager and customization options that let users tweak the new tab page so it better resembles the familiar look of IE11.Improvements and enhancements were also made to Cortana, Mi...

Boy Who Never Gives Up Overcomes Physical Challenge to Excel at Sports

Aidan Duncan is happiest when he’s playing sports on a field or court. But the 12-year-old boy from Indianapolis, Indiana, is different from the other children on his teams. He was born with a partially formed left arm. “We found out that his left arm was not developing. It could have been because of his umbilical cord wrapping around his arm, they’re not quite sure,” his mother, Mona Mulvany, told “Good Morning America.” “They never did have an exact answer as to why this happened. A specialist told Aidan's parents that their son would have balance issues and that running would be difficult for him, but Aidan has defied those predictions by dominating the field in in football, soccer -- his favorite sport, basketball and baseball. “For the All-Star team, I’m probably tied for first with the house league team, I’m probably the fastest player on the team,” Aidan said, adding that he also likes to swim “for fun.” While he acknowledged that it “takes probably more effort,” Aidan, who has been playing sports since he was about 5 years old, said it “hasn’t been as rough as people think.” “It takes a lot of hard work and effort. And you can’t really give up. You’ve got to keep your head up and not give up,” he said, echoing a lesson taught to him by his parents.

World's markets brace for Wednesday's leap second

SINGAPORE, June 30 Financial markets around with world will open on Wednesday with a tinge of apprehension, not just because of developments in Greece or China, but because of an extra second.A "leap second" is being added to the world's clocks at midnight GMT on Tuesday, which could test the extremely sensitive trading systems of the modern algorithmic era, beginning with markets in Asia.The addition of the leap second is a decision taken by the International Telecommunication Union, a United Nations body, to harmonize atomic time with the sometimes imprecise time taken by the earth to rotate around its axis.While there have been several occasions since 1972 that leap seconds have been added to world clocks, this is the first time since 1997 that such a tweak is happening on a working day and in a high-speed electronic trading environment.The majority of global equity trading and a significant proportion of trading in bonds, currencies, commodities and derivatives, is done on electronic platforms governed by the international Financial Information Exchange (FIX) protocol."On the FIX systems, the tolerance limits on an order may make it look stale if the clocks are out of sync, which is the biggest issue," said one head of electronic sales at a European brokerage in Hong Kong.Stock exchanges, brokers and investment banks said they were working with their vendors and clients to ensure their internal clocks were brought into line."No one's actually expecting a big impact.

'Best for the image of FC Barcelona': Joan Laporta wants Unicef back on shirt ...

Former Barcelona president Joan Laporta said he will do his best to put the name of Unicef or another humanitarian cause back in a prominent position on the team shirt if he returns to the helm in next month’s elections.Laporta negotiated the initial deal with Unicef almost 10 years ago during his previous spell as president from 2003 to 2010 that saw a logo put on the shirt for the first time in the club’s history. Under the last board, led by Sandro Rosell and then Josep Maria Bartomeu, deals were struck to have first the Qatar Foundation and then Qatar Airways on the front of the shirt and it saw the Unicef name relegated to the back.“I will do my best. I will do my best to get a sponsor that makes it possible so that we have Unicef again on our shirt or another motif that carries a similar meaning to Unicef,” he told Reuters on Monday. Laporta has doubts that the contract with Qatar that runs until next year is the best option for the club.“They didn’t explain the contract,” he said. “Nobody knows what they signed under the former presidency with Qatar.“There were a lot of fans complaining who wanted to know more and I am suspicious that it is not a good contract for FC Barcelona.“In any case we prefer Unicef, we think that it is the best for the image of FC Barcelona to be committed with a society like this and it is a way that we have to return to the world society what they are giving to us.” ...  

Trent Reznor: Apple Music is like going to a record store

On Tuesday, Apple unveiled its biggest new music product in years, Apple Music, an all-encompassing service that looks to take on music consumers’ favorite apps and websites (from Spotify to Pandora) into one easy-to-navigate new product. Starting Tuesday, the on-demand service will be available free for a three-month trial basis, after which time it will offer two-tiered packages: $9.99/month for a single membership and $14.99 for a family plan up to six users. Leading up to its launch, Apple has had no shortage of fans and musicians voicing their concerns over the service—only to come around and endorse it. Taylor Swift, for instance, called out the company for not paying royalties to artists during the three-month trial period—a policy which has since been reversed. And indie labels like Beggars Group, home to artists like Adele and Radiohead, are now endorsing Music, after voicing skepticism over how they would be remunerated for Apple licensing their catalogs. But Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor, who was chief creative officer for Beats when Apple purchased the company for a reported $3 billion in 2014, collaborated with Apple on the new app and says it’s one he’s been anticipating, as both an artist and fan, for years. “My interest in this space of how people listen to music started in the mid-2000s, when I was signed to a label,” Reznor tells EW. “It was a weird time because I found myself furious one day th...
