U.S. President Donald Trump called Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte on April 29, 2017 and their conversation revolved around the problem with North Korea and with Kim Jong Un's nuclear ambition.

Pentagon officials however are in shock after a transcript of their conversation was released on May 23, 2017. Pentagon officials are very careful about discussing the movement of their submarines as is it their military's belief that their stealth is the key to their mission.

Old Photos of Manila - University of Santo Tomas

I found a couple of old photos of the University of Santo Tomas or UST. UST is the oldest university in Asia. It was founded on April 28, 1611 by Miguel de Benavides, Archibishop of Manila. It is a private, Roman Catholic teaching and research university.

Here are some photos I found on UST's Facebook page.

This photo shows UST during the post-war era (1945-1946) when the Sampaloc area of Manila didn't have any high-rise buildings and Calesas were allowed along EspaƱa Boulevard.

This photo belongs to the personal collection of John Tewell. It was originally taken by an aid to Gen. Douglas MacArthur.

This is a photo of the UST main building during the pre-war years. It wasn't called the main building at the time as it was the only building on campus.

A historic photo of the History of University of Santo Tomas in the Philippines during its Liberation from the Japanese Regime in February 1945. The photo shows hundreds of Santo Tomas camp internees in front of the UST Main Building cheering their release from the prison camp.
