  • Napoles Prays 2,000 Rosaries a Day, So Does She Get a Free Pass to Heaven?

    29 Aug 2014 | 5:00 pm
    After leaving her August 15th bail hearing at the Sandiganbayan, Janet Lim Napoles showed the media the marble rosary she personally received from recently canonized Saint Pope John Paul II. Her lawyer Stephen David later disclosed to media that Napoles prays 2,000 rosaries a day. Given that a day has only 24 hours or 1,440 minutes, Napoles would have to complete an entire rosary in less than a minute praying non-stop for an entire day…every day. Atty. David also pointed out that Napoles paid for the schooling of at least 200 priests and helped construct many Catholic churches ...
  • Should President Aquino Get a Second Term as President?

    22 Aug 2014 | 5:00 pm
    Many Filipinos today are realizing that the single, six-year presidential term as prescribed in the 1987 Constitution is woefully inadequate for a good president like Benigno S. Aquino III. The delegates who wrote that provision in the Constitution must have still been reeling from the almost 20 years of “kleptocratic” rule of strongman Ferdinand Marcos when they decided that one term was enough for any future Philippine president. Four years—the presidential term at the time—would be too short; eight too long. So the delegates must have all arrived at the happy medium of 6 years and…

    The arrogance of China is becoming readily apparent with each passing day. With their newly acquired economic and military power the Chinese appear unrestrained in their assertiveness towards their neighbors. China, instead of positioning itself as a 21st century superpower appears to be turning back the clock resembling more and more the 12th century empire of Genghis Khan and the Mongol hordes who conquered most of Eurasia...just because they could. Today's China it seems adheres to the philosophy that "might makes right." And since it has the biggest "guns" in the region it can do or take…

  • Wear This: Garmin Fenix 2 Multi-Sport Watch

    18 Sep 2014 | 9:40 pm
    Garmin has recently introduced the Fenix2 multi-purpose watch in the local market. Targeting multi-sport enthusiasts, the Fenix2 was built to fit the likes of swimmers, hikers, runners, and skiers. I’ve been a fan of G-Shock watches and have had quite a good collection last year until I sold them all and shifted to oversized Diesel watches. I complemented them with smartbands and activity trackers. When I tried the Garmin Fenix2, both the regular watch and the activity trackers found their match. The Fenix2 looks like your typical metallic rugged wristwatch with a thick rubber strap. It…

  • No bragging rights for Aquino

    12 Sep 2014 | 4:11 pm
    PRESIDENT Benigno Simeon Aquino III is leaving for several European countries this Sunday, September 13, during which he’s expected to enhance those countries’ support for the Philippine position in its dispute with China over the West Philippine Sea. Having just submitted to Congress the draft of the long-awaited Bangsamoro Basic Law, Mr. Aquino is also likely to brag before the leaders of Spain, Germany, France, and Belgium how he has made peace with the Moro Islamic Liberation Front. What he’s not likely to brag about, or even to mention at all, but which will inevitably be raised by…
  • Beyond the fear of losing their jobs

    Webmaster
    5 Sep 2014 | 4:42 pm
    ABOUT THE Middle East and Libya many Filipinos have one fear, and that’s the loss of their jobs as the region and that country fall apart, besieged by the violence of contending sectarian groups and the so-called Islamic State (ISIS). That, together with paeans to their bravery, was the subtext in the expressions of concern over the Filipino peacekeepers’ repatriation last week from the Syrian Golan Heights, peacekeeping under UN auspices being, like other jobs in the Middle East, relatively high-paying at around P45,000 a month. In recent months, fighting in the flashpoints of Iraq,…

    Webmaster
    29 Aug 2014 | 4:28 pm
    BENIGNO Aquino III has done it before: lamented the “negativity” of his critics as well as that of the Philippine press and media. “Negativity” and “negativism” have been an even more noticeable part of his public vocabulary in recent times, together with their supposed opposites, “optimism” and “being positive.” Last February, for example, in a speech during the 114th anniversary of the Manila Bulletin newspaper, Mr. Aquino asked the media to “raise the level of public discourse, instead of fueling unnecessary speculation and negativity that contribute to national…

    23 Aug 2014 | 10:30 am
    ABOUT Benigno Aquino III’s declaration in a TV5 interview that he would “listen to his bosses,” we can either (1) assume that it was his demure way of saying that he will indeed seek a second term, or (2) dismiss it as merely an attempt to allay the fears of his Liberal Party mates that, without him, they would have no winnable candidate in 2016 and would have to face the chilling prospect of not having anyone of their own in Malacañang for six years. In either case, it has triggered a contentious debate that could lead to consequences Mr. Aquino may not have anticipated. In reply to…
  • The Palparan fallacy

    Webmaster
    15 Aug 2014 | 4:30 pm
    PROMOTED to major general by then President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo, Jovito Palparan echoed in 2009 her declaration that she wanted Republic Act 1700, the Anti-Subversion Act, “revived,” although the proper word should have been “exhumed,” RA 1700 having been long dead. Then President Fidel Ramos signed Republic Act 7636, which repealed RA 1700, on September 22, 1992. When Arroyo and Palparan expressed their wish, the Anti-Subversion Act had been dead for nearly two decades. RA 1700 was enacted in 1957 to help defeat the Hukbong Mapagpalaya ng Bayan (People’s Liberation Army)—the…

    LA CABRERA is an Argentinian Steakhouse and the Manila branch of Parrilla La Cabrera by Chef de Cuisine Gaston Riveira. This local iteration is through the efforts of Carlo Lorenzana of Shi Lin fame, and Carlo Lorenzana of Cellar de Boca Argentinian Wine Kitchen in Davao (yes, they have the same name. :D). Argentinian Steak is considered the best in the world. In La Cabrera Manila, however, they use USDA steak. It still gets good reviews when it's the Argentinian Chef who prepares the steak.

    Image Source: Seroundtable.com Last June, in the interest of preserving individual privacy versus public interest in freedom of information about specific persons, the EU courts ruled that Google must permit the removal of links to news articles, court judgments, and other documents that might turn up in results when searches are conducted on their names, upon the request of an individual. If it can be proven that public interest does not outweigh personal rights, then the search engine can be compelled by the courts to remove those links.

    If Cape Bojeador Lighthouse guides ships on the northwestern corner of Luzon, then Cape Engaño Lighthouse (Wikipedia) is its metaphorical sibling, guiding ships on Luzon’s northeastern frontier. This Spanish-era lighthouse, built in 1888 and first used in 1892, sits atop a hill on the northernmost point of Palaui Island in Santa Ana, Cagayan. A ground-level view of the lighthouse building complex from the south.

    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.

    July was a good month for politicians who like nothing better than bashing the payday lenders. Not only did the Financial Conduct Authority introduce new regulations to limit the number of times a loan can be rolled over, proposals were also announced to cap the cost of a payday loan. But why are politicians and the press so quick to vilify the payday industry? Amidst the fanfare of July’s regulatory activity, the press was chock-full of choice phrases such as irresponsible lending and preying on the vulnerable to further denigrate the payday loans industry. Clearly this is nothing new,…
