A BABY girl named Vinice was designated as the Philippines’ symbolic 8 billionth person in the world after she was born at the Dr. Jose Fabella Memorial Hospital in Manila past midnight Tuesday. The United Nations had said the global population was projected to reach 8 billion by Nov. 15, a ‘milestone’ as population growth is at its slowest rate since 1950.
