Gunmen kill 9 motorcycle riders in southern Philippines

MANILA, Philippines (AP) — Gunmen blocked a group of motorcycle riders then opened fire with assault rifles in a busy downtown area in the southern Philippines, killing nine people, police said Sunday, in the latest violence to roil the volatile region.

Police officials said the attack on the victims, who were mostly farmers, at noon Saturday in Kabacan town in Cotabato province may have been sparked by a local feud and was likely not an act of terrorism.

Cotabato lies in a poverty-wracked region where a decades-long Muslim separatist insurgency has eased largely due to a 2014 peace deal between the Philippines’ largest Muslim rebel group and the government, although small armed groups aligned with the Islamic State group still pose a threat.

Most of the victims in Saturday’s attack apparently did not know each other and were traveling on six motorcycles, some in tandems, when they were blocked by

Triumph Is Bringing Back the Trident, and It Looks Like Motorcycle Heaven

The Ford Bronco isn’t the only beloved motor vehicle set to make a triumphant return in the 2021 model year. Triumph Motorcycles has just announced that it is bringing back the Trident after a 45-year absence too.

The design prototype for the rebooted roadster bike made its public debut earlier this week at the London Design Museum. While an art museum may sound like an unlikely location to unveil a motorcycle, it makes more sense once you look at the new Trident’s eye-popping design.

First introduced in the late ’60s, the Trident helped push street motorcycles forward and ushered in the era of the superbike. Although it was released to critical acclaim, it was soon overshadowed by the release of the Honda CB750. The bike would be discontinued in 1975, but that didn’t stop it from earning itself a dedicated fanbase, one that’s only grown in the decades since.

From Cosmopolitan

Ben “Not My Batman” Affleck and Knives Out star Ana de Armas are dating and it’s all very sudden and public. Like, they basically cannot stop being photographed together by paparazzi, to the point where some Instagram lurkers think their relationship is a PR stunt (even though she’s spending holidays with his kids now).

Lord knows I love a conspiracy theory, but the only way to truly figure out if these two are legit is to analyze the evidence like my FBI agent boss would want me to. So without further ado, and because we all need a distraction, let’s take a look at Ben and Ana’s dating timeline.
