  • How Ferdinand Marcos’s Martial Law Continues Hurting Filipinos to This Day

    Philippine NewsLink:
    22 Sep 2014 | 5:00 pm
    On the evening of September 23, 1972, two days after it had taken effect, Ferdinand Marcos announced via live television from Malacañang Palace that he had placed the Philippines under Martial Law. It was a calculated move by a devious politician to keep himself in power beyond what the Constitution allowed. A staged ambush attempt against his Defense Secretary Juan Ponce Enrile was the main excuse Marcos (or “Macoy” as he was deridingly referred to back then) used to strip Filipinos of all their constitutional rights. With that, the diminutive Ilocano from the backwaters of Batac,…

  • Both United States and Philippine Governments to Blame for Death of Jeffery "Jennifer" Laude

    18 Oct 2014 | 5:00 pm
    The United States and Philippine governments share the blame for the tragedy. Two young lives needlessly destroyed: the first, a young Filipino transgender found strangled inside a motel bathroom; the second a teenaged American serviceman accused of murder. What took place that fateful evening of October 11th—when Jeffrey Laude, 26, a transgender who went by the name "Jennifer," and his companion United States Marine Private 1st Class Joseph Scott Pemberton, 19, checked into the Celzone Lodge in Olongapo City—are still under investigation. What we know for sure is that the couple…

    30 Oct 2014 | 3:56 am
    Almost a year after a super typhoon devastated wide areas of the central Philippines killing thousands, President Benigno Aquino only this week approved a $3.74 billion master plan to rebuild housing, social services and public infrastructure. Typhoon Haiyan wiped out or damaged practically everything in its path as it swept ashore on Nov. 8, 2013, with seven-metre storm surges destroying around 90 percent of the city of Tacloban in Leyte province.

    Spain's Council of State on Thursday unanimously backed a move for the government to try to block a planned "consultation of citizens" on independence in the region of Catalonia on Nov. 9, a spokeswoman for the consultative body said.

The Council of State now wants the government to ask the Constitutional Court to declare this new vote illegal.

    iPod dominated the MP3 player market for years. It began with the first iPod with a circular trackpad and more variants came after. But just when iPhone 6/6 Plus was launched, Apple pulled the iPod Classic from the store. Why? There have been multiple speculations about the slow death of the loved iPod until September 9, 2014 but Apple is mum about it. For 5 years, it has stayed the same with no slight change in design or anything. There is just one reason behind it, parts. Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO, explained during WSJDLive conference on Monday that Apple mowed down the iPod Classic…

But neither should it prevent the media from using the opportunity to provide the public the information and analysis it needs to encourage citizen action against corruption. The 2016 elections may be all of nineteen months away, but no one will seriously challenge the probability that what’s happening to Binay is a pre-emptive strike intended…

But some Filipinos still argue that things were better during the dictatorship, while others recall the way the regime ruined countless lives and inflicted on Philippine society its dark legacies of human rights violations, abuse of power, corruption and bad governance.

    Today is the 70th anniversary of the fulfillment of General Douglas MacArthur’s pledge of “I shall return” after being forced out of the Philippines by the Imperial Japanese Army during World War II. On October 20, 1944, MacArthur, together with Philippine Commonwealth President Sergio Osmeña, landed at Palo, Leyte on a site designated by the Americans as “Red Beach”. This historic moment marked the beginning of the liberation of the Philippines from the Japanese. A standard view of the Leyte memorial showing larger-than-life statues of General MacArthur and…

    Touted as the longest bridge in Mindanao with a length of 907 meters, the Diosdado Macapagal Bridge is one of the top tourist attractions in Butuan City with its raw and elegant design. Similar to the previously-featured Marcelo B. Fernan Bridge in Cebu, the Diosdado Macapagal Bridge is a cable-stayed bridge except that it has a single tower instead of Fernan Bridge’s pair. I’m also guessing that Diosdado Macapagal Bridge is also the tallest bridge in Mindanao, if not the whole country.

    The Halloween Trick or Treat Tradition 20 years ago is a post from: A Filipina Mom Blogger What happened to Halloween day? Why is Trick or Treat celebrated way earlier than October 31? Where is the fun in moving it to an earlier date? Those were some of the questions my kids asked me in 2006. My three children celebrated Trick or Treat only on October 31 whether it was a weekday or weekend. Then that all changed when our village changed the date because it was just convenient for them to facilitate the kids in costume. My kids often say that it is like moving Christmas day to December 20.

For example, in the recent breach of mass retailer Target, the problem was discovered not by the company or any of its customers, but instead by a third-party security agency charged with monitoring the network. The fact that so few organizations actually catch suspicious or criminal activity on their networks highlights a common problem today: Most companies treat anything within the network as…

It’s no real surprise to find some of the worst examples of allegedly “human” behavior in the comments sections of Filipino news articles. It seems as though we’ve accepted the reality of bad-grammar internet criminals who are the ultimate examples of internet trolls, people who disregard humane and decent behavior and call it a joke. But as with all things, there will always be a division of opinions, arguments on the internet, dissent among the ranks of commenters everywhere. Keeping this in mind, I delved…

But, as it was my first time getting a Boyzilian wax (otherwise known as a “Male Brazilian” or a “Brozilian” wax), it was totally nerve-wracking. It felt like I was getting circumcised again. At the back of my head, I asked myself, “Why did I say yes to this again?” Oh yeah, a dare — great. The reception area of The Body Spa & Waxing Lounge. The ladies of The Body Spa and Waxing Lounge…

    We always pass by this restaurant in White Plains whenever we go to our favorite spa, The Body Spa and Waxing Lounge (ahem), and never really gave it much thought until a week ago. Called Basil, it used to be one of those places which sold ornamental plants along White Plains, but which has since been converted into a beautiful Thai restaurant. We strongly recommend this place if you’re in the area and looking for good Thai food. The interiors are dark and lovely, with a small pond in the corner, candles, Thai-inspired decor, and a fairly intimidating wall of earth, roots and plants…
