Philippines may offer about $750 million in global bonds in 2015, half the overseas debt it sold this year as the nation continues to favor domestic borrowing, Treasurer Rosalia de Leon said. Of the 700.8 billion pesos ($16 billion) borrowing planned for next year, 86 percent, or 605.1 billion pesos, will probably be raised from the local market and the remaining 95.7 billion pesos from overseas debt, de Leon said in a mobile-phone message reply to questions today. The overseas debt will include official development loans

Drag racing must be one of the craziest sports on earth, and now, your kids can do it too. NHRA recently dropped the age limit of competition to just 5 years old, allowing children to learn how to ride a bicycle without training wheels on Saturday and then race a fire-breathing dragster on Sunday. OK. It doesn’t breath fire, and the five year olds run by themselves using a crate engine from Briggs and Stratton with a restrictor in place. When you’re six, however, then things get interesting. You’ll be racing “head-to-head on track at the 13.90-second index,” this time without a restrictor. Like with all sports, if you want to be the best, you better start young. If you have a shot to share, please add it to the Motoramic group on Flickr, or send us a message via Twitter, Facebook and Google+. And thanks to Bill Jacomet for this one.

Recently I had a very unpleasant surprise in the TSA line at New York’s JFK airport. Just before actually getting to the TSA agent’s podium, a red-jacketed person (who I believe was hired by American Airlines as a subcontractor but not an actual employee) insisted that I put my beloved Rimowa four-wheeled suitcase in a bag sizer. Keep in mind that I was flying in business class, and that I’ve taken this same 21-inch suitcase all around the world on almost every major airline and quite a few not-so-major ones.
