We’ve heard and seen a lot of Frozen covers and parodies, but its newest mashup with Breaking Bad is worth a look, especially for fans of the hit series. Like the show, there are some funny moments thrown in but overall, it gets pretty emotional. There are plenty of spoilers, so fans who have yet to finish the series may need to tread lightly.
Veteran comedian Bill Cosby has finally released a statement on the recent rape allegations against him, but it doesn’t really say much. He has previously refused to address the allegations and cancelled appearances on talk shows. The statement, posted on his website Monday, says, "Over the last several weeks, decade-old, discredited allegations against Mr. Cosby have resurfaced. The fact that they are being repeated does not make them true. Mr. Cosby does not intend to dignify these allegations with any comment."
Public satisfaction with the Aquino administration recovered after hitting a record low in the previous quarter, the latest survey from Social Weather Stations (SWS) said Monday. The survey conducted last September 26 to 29 found that 59 percent of the respondents were satisfied with the government’s performance, 24 percent dissatisfied, and 16 percent ambivalent. The administration got an overall satisfaction rating of +35 or "Trillanes good," higher than the +29 net score recorded last quarter.
Some senators may have already prejudged the alleged overpricing in the construction of the Makati Science High School, the camp of Vice President Jejomar Binay said Saturday. Binay’s spokesman Joey Salgado insisted that the contract for the P1.33-billion MSHS went through public bidding and has passed a government audit.
"But on the mere say so of Renato Bondal and after a cursory inspection, the senators have already made conclusions of overpricing," Salgado said. The project was allegedly overpriced by P862 million or by almost 300 percent.
Senator Antonio Trillanes IV wants the Senate investigation on Senate President Franklin Drilon and the alleged overpriced Iloilo City Convention Center to be stopped, despite another witness asking the Senate to be allowed to testify. He urged Senate Blue Ribbon chairman Senator Teofisto Guingona III not to conduct another hearing after a witness bungled his testimony in the first public hearing last week.
Trillanes pointed out that the complainant, former Iloilo provincial administrator Manuel Mejorada, had admitted that he had no solid evidence to prove the alleged overpricing.

After several weeks of a rumored third Sex and the City movie, there are now reports of a possible return to TV instead-from the creator himself. In a recent interview, Michael Patrick King was quoted saying, "The mere fact that it is still so alive, and not just on the gym TVs...but that people are still wondering about these girls, you never know. It could come back at some point. All bets are off."
You can finally keep those political rants and embarrassing photos to yourself, because Facebook is reported to be working on a new website aptly named "Facebook at Work." A report on Financial Times cited sources who said the new website seeks to compete directly with Google, Microsoft, and LinkedIn. "The new site will look very like Facebook-with a newsfeed and groups-but will allow users to keep their personal profile with its holiday photos, political rants and silly videos separate from their work identity," the FT said.
The new product aims to allow users to "chat with colleagues, connect with professional contacts and collaborate over documents, competing with Google Drive and Microsoft Office."
