Marvel's latest superhero offering, Civil War has finally given fans a preview of the new and much-younger Spider-Man (played by Tom Holland).

The man, Dennis Nicholl, used a black box with five antennae to disable certain features of the mobile phones. Nicholl had been doing this for a few months with the device, which he imported from China. Authorities were alerted to Nicholl’s deeds and sent undercover officers on a mission to catch him. The police arrested him after he used his device while an officer was talking on his cell phone. Nicholl was charged with unlawful interference with a public utility.
“The Commission on Elections cannot postpone on this ground [lack of material time because of the Supreme Court order] based on existing law. There should not even be talk about postponement,” declared Sen. Franklin Drilon. Sen. Alan Peter Cayetano, who is running for vice president, considers the poll body's unpreparedness "unacceptable." He said, “Although I respect the Commission on Elections’ (COMELEC) decision not to issue receipts, they should have been prepared for both.”
“Maliban sa ito’y isang uri ng diskriminasyon, ito ay pakikialam na sa pribadong buhay ng isang tao,” Liberal Party vice presidential candidate Leni Robredo said. “Higit pa riyan, ang pagkakaroon ng anak ay isang karapatan na hindi puwedeng alisin sa isang babae,” she added. Robredo emphasized that pre-employment requirements such as health, police and National Bureau of Investigation clearances should already be enough. One of the authors of the Anti-Discrimination Act, Robredo lamented, “Kahit nakapaloob na sa batas ang patas na trato para sa lahat, ang katotohanan, marami pa ring Pilipino ang nakararanas ng diskriminasyon sa kanilang pang-araw-araw na buhay.”
