1. Robin Padilla, Mariel Rodriguez expecting twins
After suffering a miscarriage last March, actress Mariel Rodriguez is now expecting twins with husband actor Robin Padilla. Robin took to Instagram to confirm the pregnancy. He posted on August 1 an ultrasound photo which he captioned, “Maria and Juan de Padilla IN SHA ALLAH GOD WILLING.” He also posted a photo of Mariel resting in the Asian Hospital in Alabang. The two went on vacation in Spain, so there’s a good chance that the babies were conceived there. (pep.ph)
2. Pinoy siblings invent lamp that runs on metal and salt water Raphael and Aisa Mijeno designed a handheld lamp that doesn’t need fuel, but is instead powered by a few strips of metal and salt water. When Aisa lived with a community where the people had no access to electricity, she observed that they had to walk 12 hours just to buy a bottle of kerosene to power their lamps, and that only lasts for two days. Their lamp, on the other hand, can run for eight hours at a time on one glass of water and two teaspoons of salt and, unlike kerosene-powered lamps, is not a fire hazard. It even has a USB port that can be used to charge a cell phone. (upworthy.com)
