The country is missing out on multi-billion dollar foreign investments—not to mention the thousands of jobs new businesses can provide—simply because foreign companies…

    24 Apr 2014 | 2:39 am
    A study from the University of Colorado published this year said that the most common type of 'friend' to be unfriended on Facebook are acquaintances from high school, a report from Phys.org said. Because as it turns out, your political and religious beliefs are just too different. The study was based on a survey of 1,077 people conducted—ironically enough—on Twitter. The other big reason for unfriending was frequent, uninteresting posts," Christopher Sibona, a doctoral student in the Computer Science and Information Systems program at the CU Denver Business School told Phys.org.

Policies are the first things that we should look into as the internet utility here is a huge business; tinkering with the policies that govern us will also tinker with how things work.

    THE death of Mao Zedong in 1976 led to the dominance of Deng Xiaoping and his like-minded colleagues in the Chinese leadership. To Mao’s insistence that China should hew to the socialist path of development, Deng argued that “it doesn’t matter whether a cat is white or black so long as it catches mice”–i.e., that capitalism could just as well, and even better drive, China’s development. Thirty-eight years later it seems that Deng had a point. Although socialist in name, China is now a capitalist society. It has the world’s second largest economy, and its cities throb with…

That war has been described as “the longest running” of its kind in Asia and quite probably in the entire world. Forty-five years have passed since the founding of the NPA in…

    THE FEBRUARY 18 decision of the Supreme Court is at best only a partial victory for free expression. The Court declared the provisions of the Cyber Crime Prevention Act of 2012 (RA10175) on unsolicited commercial communications (Section 4c3), real-time collection of traffic data (Section 12), and blocking access to computer sites found in violation of the Act unconstitutional. These were among the key provisions the petitioners against the Act had identified as unconstitutional and infringing on several rights including the right to free expression. The Court also declared Section 5 of the…

    IN A piece that won’t win any Pulitzer Prize, one of those individuals on whom the media have conferred the title of “political analyst”– Ramon Casiple– asked if Benigno Aquino III was committing political suicide. It was a question more rhetorical than literal. Casiple’s answer is yes, the country’s President, with three more years to go before he leaves office, has been killing himself politically. He cited as proof Mr. Aquino’s statements and actions in the last six months or so of this particularly problematic year. On the pork barrel issue, for example, Casiple…

    THE December 16 Metro Manila bus disaster in which 22 people lost their lives and 20 more were injured was far from unique. On the same day, in Badian, Cebu, a drunken bus driver lost control of his vehicle while negotiating a curve and killed several people, including his own wife and daughter. Barely two months ago, on October 9, a bus collided with a truck in Atimonan, Quezon, and smashed into two other buses, two cargo trucks, a trailer truck and a van that were going in the other direction. Twenty people were killed and 54 others were injured. In 2010, a bus crash in Balamban, Cebu,…
