  • The coup against EDSA

    Webmaster
    19 Feb 2015 | 9:11 pm
    ONLY by coincidence are reports of a brewing coup plot circulating on the eve of the 29th anniversary of the EDSA 1 People Power uprising. The usual suspects behind coup attempts may find it convenient to link their conspiracy to the overthrow of the Marcos regime in 1986, but they would be unduly stretching the meaning of their clandestine enterprise if they did so. A coup is the exact opposite of what happened in 1986. A coup d’etat (literally, a sudden move against the state) is a clandestine, elite undertaking usually instigated or supported by military adventurists acting in behalf of…
  • The pope from the third world

    Webmaster
    9 Jan 2015 | 12:33 pm
    LET’S GET THE usual “separation-of-church-and-state” argument out of the way first. Securing the Pope, whoever he may be, is a State responsibility and no one in his right mind should be arguing against it. No one should begrudge the Catholic faithful among the citizenry the opportunity to at least see the Pope in person either. If providing that opportunity requires declaring January 15, 16 and 19 holidays, then by all means should those dates be holidays. The point is that neither assuring the Pope’s safety nor providing Filipinos the chance to see him impinges on the Constitutional…
  • Politicizing Ebola

    EBOLA Virus Disease (EVD), or Ebola hemorrhagic fever, which the World Health Organization (WHO) describes as “a severe, often fatal illness in humans” is not contagious until the infected person develops symptoms. But why take the unnecessary risk of infection anyway by socializing with the very people you’ve quarantined? And yet that’s precisely what Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) Chief of Staff Gregorio Catapang and Department of Health (DOH) Acting Secretary Janette Garin did by visiting Caballo Island early this week. WHO Fact Sheet 103, dated September 2014, declares that…

    SO keenly anticipated by much of the media, the “break” between Vice President Jejomar Binay and President Benigno Aquino III has not come to pass. On the contrary. Despite the attempts of the usual Binay opponents to downplay the subject (they didn’t talk about politics), the supposed awkwardness (it was merely cordial), and even the length of a meeting between Binay and Aquino (it was thirty minutes, not three hours) in the evening of October 14th, judging from what ensued afterwards, that meeting seems to have patched things up between the two. Besieged by charges of corruption and…

In one of those instances demonstrative of the perverse character of the political system, he’s part of the so called…

Three doctors told me that my heart had blocked arteries and I will need an angioplasty. Two diagnostic tests revealed the necessity for an angioplasty. At that time, all I could think of was the expense, something like 500,000 pesos ($10,000). As I hovered between sleepy state and consciousness , I remember thinking that it was alright to die.

    Admin
    3 Mar 2015 | 4:54 am
    It is generally conceded that impeachment is more of a political than a legal process. However, the Integrated Bar of the Philippines (IBP), supposedly the official organization of lawyers in the Philippines, has issued a statement raising an interesting legalistic claim regarding the impeachment of Chief Justice Renato Corona. The statement argues that while the impeachment process itself against Corona is legal, some of the grounds relied on, particularly those which question the opinions of the justices applying the Constitution in actual cases, constitute an assault on the judiciary…

    Impeachment is a political process mainly because party-mates will vote along party lines. This is the habiliment of democracy. Majority controls the business of the day, minority voice is heard for the record, but it does not carry the business for the day. We should not lose our equilibrium because some Senators have already prejudged Merci and therefore they should inhibit from sitting in the impeachment body. The process itself is political and therefore, it will be resolved in accordance with party agenda. Merci, from my recollection did not argue that politics is ruinous to public…

The Aquino administration surely knows these higher rates exact a political cost. It can, of course, be argued by P-Noy’s communications team that with 7 in 10 Filipinos support the long term goal of putting our lives in order, the adjustments simply cannot be put off. But while this point is conceded, the matter of cogently communicating the reason/s for the upticks cannot be neglected. Let’s cite another point – the…

    This is to complain about a flight attendant named Miss Qhan. Our plane was on a connecting flight from Zürich to Manila. First of all, this is our first time to travel with Oman Air. We always booked Singapore Airlines and Emirates whenever we go to the Philippines and we were always satisfied with these airlines, however, due to Oman Air’s three hour waiting time in Muscat on our connecting flight, we decided to try this airline. Well, what can I say? Let me start from the flight from Zürich. We had the last two seats of the economy class and we were happy since there was not much…

  • 9 Natural Ways to have a healthy, beautiful, younger-looking skin.

    Most of us women have a lot of insecurities. We want to lose a bit more weight (or gain a bit more weight depending on the situation), want our skin to be clear and pimple-free, want to have that even skin tone, want to stay young forever, or at least delay and keep wrinkles at bay, etc. That is why the beauty and anti-aging industry is such a big business. They feed on our insecurieties and thereby getting big chunks of our money. However, insecurity is not at all bad. You can use it to better yourself. Of course there is a big difference between being insecure and lashing out on other…

    I do not really like amusement parks. I mean, they are exciting and all that but I don’t like those scary rides where I feel like I might have a heart attack at any moment. However, for some people, the scarier the rides, the better the thrill. For these people, let me recommend the Heide Park. My husband had been raving about this park days long before we went to Germany to visit his family. I told him I will NEVER take any ride if it is dangerous (which means all rides, well, except those designed for little children I suppose). We went there early because there tend to be a lot of…
