Bryan Castillo wins the BIGGEST LOSER PINOY EDITION Doubles

Last 2013, heavyweight pairs in all corners of the Philippines took part of their life-changing weight loss experience in The Biggest Loser Pinoy Edition Doubles. After months of desperate struggle, all in the name of losing weight for the benefit of themselves, it has been one heck of a journey for those but on the finale, the final four; Bryan Castillo, Francis Asis, Kayen Lazaro, and Osie Nebreja, are on the center stage to find out who is THE BIGGEST LOSER.

Bryan Castillo wins The Biggest Loser after losing a total of 155lbs of his weight. He began with a very obese 293lbs but now, he weighs 139lbs! A 52.56% improvement! Kayen Lazaro placed as a 1st runner-up, having managed to drop 50.50% of her weight from 287 to 142lbs.

The end of the Hindustan Ambassador

The Hindustan Ambassador once started out in life as a Morris Oxford and when it was launched in 1957, it became the only passenger car produced in India until it became the symbol of social status and has been used to chauffeur high-ranking officials for many decades. After over 60 years of production, the Hindustan Ambassador has been discontinued because of poor sales, with only 2,200 units sold last 2013.

F1 2014

The 2014 season of Formula One has seen the biggest changes in the sport's 60-year history with new turbocharged power units and new aerodynamics, which combine to place more emphasis on racing skill and control in cars with more power delivery but less downforce than previous seasons. F1 fans didn't like what's changed but what they did like is the rivalry between two Mercedes F1 drivers, Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg. These two are chasing against each other, vying for the world title, and in the end, it was Lewis Hamilton who declared the victor of the F1 2014 season.

Death of Maya Angelou

On May 28, 2014, notable American author, poet, and activist Maya Angelou died at the age of 86. The commemorated Afro-American poet-activist is respected for her inspiration to her fellow Americans and the world thanks to her strong presence of her literary works. She did read her poem at Bill Clinton's inauguration in 1993.

The end of Saturday morning cartoons

Traditional Saturday morning cartoons on broadcast TV across the USA is now gone for good after over 50 years of entertaining kids since the Cold War. CW's Vortexx programming block, the last of its kinds, has been replaced by One Magnificent Morning block, which features educational and inspirational shows targeted for youth and parents, since early October 2014.

The Beast asteroid

The Beast "2014HQ124" asteroid made its close approach at an estimated 1:56AM Eastern Time Sunday, June 8, 2014 (1:56PM Philippine Standard Time) and its close approach is about three times the distance between the earth and the moon. Asteroid 2014 HQ124 is over 1000ft wide and travelled at 31,000mph, but it posed no threat to the planet because of its distance.

Miami vs. San Antonio...again

Last 2013, the Miami Heat and the San Antonio Spurs spent seven games trading punches and the Heat became the surprise winner against Spurs. Now for the 2014 NBA Finals, it seems that odds are turned and it became a little bit more difficult than last year.

In the first game, the San Antonio Spurs kickstarted the 2014 NBA Finals after a 110-95 win against Miami Heat. Spurs won the first game of the finals. Then in the second game, the Miami Heat leveled the odds after the score of 98-96. In Game 3, San Antonio Spurs leading the game against Miami Heat at the score of 111-92. And in Game 4, Spurs still leading at the score of 107-86 against Miami Heat.

It's all down to this; Game 5, held at their home turf AT&T Center, and if Spurs win, they'll be declared as 2014 NBA Champions and they did, after ending Miami Heat's 2-win streak at the score of 104-87.

This is the fifth time the Spurs won the championship since winning their titles in 1999, 2003, 2005, and 2007.

Girl Meets World

On June 27th, 2014, Disney Channel aired Girl Meets World, which takes place several years after the original Boy Meets World. Enter Riley Matthews (played by newest sensation Rowan Blanchard), the daughter of BMW's Cory and Topanga Matthews, and her best friend Maya Hart (played by Sabrina Carpenter) as these two finding out what it takes to take on the world by themselves.

Enter the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat. These two machines are powered by Chrysler Group's newly developed supercharged 6.2L V8 HEMI engine, which is more powerful than the C7 Z06 and the GT500 because it has exactly 707HP of power output!
