Bianca Manalo warned her followers about losing access to her Facebook and Twitter pages after falling victim to an unknown hacker.

The actress revealed she lost control of the said social media accounts on her Instagram page earlier today, May 26.

“To my friends on [F]acebook, PLEASE REPORT my [F]acebook account,” she said. “It was hacked and I no longer have access to my page.”

Prior to losing control of her Facebook page, she pointed out that the “heartless person” had also seized her Twitter account. The hacker did not stop there, and attempted to access Manalo’s Instagram profile as well until 7:30 a.m. today. However, Manalo was able to protect her Instagram page before the unknown person could gain control of it.

She then appealed to her followers to protect their own profiles, saying, “Guys please secure your accounts. Make sure you turn ON your Two-factor authentication. Be safe everyone.”

Two-factor authentication is a security feature that helps protect your social media account in addition to your password, according to Facebook. Once this feature is set up, you will be asked to enter a special login code or confirm your login attempt whenever someone tries to access your account from a device not recognized by the social media platform.  /ra

Busch passes Cindric in OT to win Xfinity race at Charlotte

CONCORD, N.C. — Kyle Busch passed Austin Cindric on the final lap in overtime to win his 97th career Xfinity Series race in dramatic fashion Monday night at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

After a crash involving several cars sent the race into overtime, Cindric passed Busch on a restart starting at the inside lane of the front row. But Busch battled back and pushed the pedal to the floor, passing Cindric on the last lap to earn his 18th overall win at Charlotte Motor Speedway across NASCAR’s top three series — the most of any driver.

“I thought choosing the outside was the right way but obviously it wasn’t. I don’t know,” Busch said. “Those guys put up a whale of a fight tonight on restarts. I guess I’m not good at it anymore.”

Cindric thought he had Busch beat.

“To almost beat one of the best in the business on worse tires, I never lifted, I never lifted until I knew I was done,” Cindric said. “I wanted to win so bad.”

Busch has now won 210 career races across NASCAR’s top three series.

Daniel Hemric edged Cindric for second. Cindric finished third followed by Ross Chastain and Justin Allgaier.

Busch appeared in control for most of the race winning the first two stages, but was assessed a speeding penalty on pit row with 38 laps to go, dropping him to 10th place. But Busch battled back through the field with the help of a series of strong restarts on cautions in the final 30 laps.

There were just five cautions in the first 155 laps, but six yellow flags over the last 45 laps.

Busch recaptured the lead with 10 laps to go, but nearly gave it all away in overtime.

The 57-year-old Hall of Famer, who played for the Hoyas in college and the New York Knicks in the NBA, announced Friday that he had tested positive for the coronavirus and was being treated at a hospital.

Patrick Ewing Jr. said three days later on Twitter that his father was getting better after receiving treatment and thanked the doctors and nurses who looked after him during his hospital stay. He also thanked fans for their thoughts and prayers after his father’s announcement.

“My father is now home and getting better,” Ewing Jr. wrote. “We’ll continue to watch his symptoms and follow the CDC guidelines. I hope everyone continues to stay safe and protect yourselves and your loved ones.”

As a player, the 7-foot Patrick Ewing helped Georgetown win the 1984 NCAA men’s basketball championship and reach two other title games. During his four years playing, Georgetown went 121-23, a winning percentage of .840.

He was taken with the No. 1 overall pick in the 1985 draft after the Knicks won the NBA’s first lottery. Ewing wound up leading New York to the 1994 NBA Finals, where they lost to Hakeem Olajuwon and the Houston Rockets.

Ewing played 17 seasons in the NBA, 15 with the Knicks.

After retiring as a player, he spent 15 years as an assistant or associate
