Wea€™ve probably all heard friends or family members say at one time or another, a€?Ia€™m so depressed.a€? Unfortunately, when most people hear the word, a€?depression,a€? they think of the worst case scenario of a person who lays in bed day after day and cana€™t get up, or the person who is actively suicidal. The intensity of this constellation of symptoms can range from mild to severe, obviously with severe symptoms interfering with onea€™s ability to function to a higher degree.

Payne, her husband, Chris, and their two children got surprise on Friday, when representatives from Kohla€™s showed up to their house with a bunch of presents. The family got more masks, lots of Star Wars toys, $2,500 in gift cards and 10,000 rewards points after Payne caused the mask to sell out online and boost the storea€™s sales.
Candace Payne's Facebook video has gone viral thanks to her contagious laugh and Chewbacca.
Last Thursday, Payne visited her local Kohl's department store to return some clothes and she decided to get a fun gift for herself, a Chewbacca mask. She was so excited about the mask that she got in her car and turned on her camera while in the storea€™s parking lot and put the mask on. Remembering how that felt makes me love stories featuring moms like Naomi Jael Covert so much! The 21 year old was surprised because she's posted pictures of her breastfeeding her son before and none had gone viral until now. Covert said she chose not to cover up while breastfeeding because TJ would a€?rip it off in no timea€?.

MANILA — The biggest public-private partnership (PPP) project to date that will connect Metro Manila and the Bicol Region will be delayed after the National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) approved last Monday, tweaks in the terms approved by President Aquino in 2015. The incoming Duterte administration nonetheless has the option to either withdraw the changes approved by the NEDA-ICC or continue with the previous terms under the NEDA Board approval. The adjustments in the project were pushed by the Department of Transportation and Communications, its implementing agency. The NEDA-ICC approved the transportation department’s proposal to split the project into two, such that the planned commuter railway and the long-haul railway would be bid out to private sector proponents separately. The original plan approved by the NEDA Board chaired by President Aquino in 2015 consisted of commuter railway operations between Tutuban, Manila, and Calamba, Laguna, as well as a long-haul railway operations between Tutuban and Legazpi, on top of the extended long-haul rail operations on the branch line between Calamba and Batangas as well as an extension between Legazpi and Matnog, Sorsogon, the PPP Center said on its website.
The NEDA-ICC gave a go-ahead to the issuance of a bid bulletin amending the technical specifications of the project, so that the commuter railway segment would proceed as scheduled. A check with the PPP Center website showed the submission of pre-qualification documents for the project had been postponed until further notice.
But in so far as the long-haul railway segment is concerned, it will be back to square one, virtually restarting the process.
Another tweak in the project’s terms was an increase in the project cost, as the cost of the right-of-way acquisition of P15 million for 38,000 families to be affected would go up as a bigger number, about 100,000 families, could be displaced by expanding the right of way.
The NEDA-ICC, whose approved projects get elevated for NEDA Board approval, already green-lighted these changes “in principle” during a meeting last April 25. The NEDA-ICC, however, did not approve the proposal to switch from the narrow gauge technology to standard gauge, the latter said to be a “future-proof” technology.
Amorado said they have been targeting to file theprotest on June 28, a day before the June 29 deadline.
The protest will seek a recount of the votes in several areas, as well as the setting aside of the election results in areas where there are clear indications of election fraud and manipulation, according to Amorado. The Marcos camp had asked the Comelec to preserve and secure any and all servers, as well as other related IT equipment used in the elections, he added. Dela Cruz also said Marcos wanted to file the protest, thinking that he owed it to his supporters and the Filipino people to find out what happened in the elections.
Comelec and Smartmatic officials had said that the change in the script only produced a cosmetic effect, which was to correct the spelling of a candidate’s name.
INCOMING President Rodrigo Duterte does not tolerate the killing of journalists, as claimed by the United Nations based on his statements last week. The UN Rapporteur condemned Duterte’s statement that corrupt members of media are not exempted from assassination, saying that it was an excuse for violence against journalists.
In a press conference on May 31, Duterte linked the killings of some journalists to media corruption. On June 2, in comments to reporters in Davao City, Duterte said freedom of the press was not a protection for corrupt journalists. He cited the case of Jun Pala, a radio commentator and politician who was murdered in Davao in 2003. He said he knew who ordered Pala’s murder—someone who was hurt by the journalist’s personal attacks. He said there were three types of journalists — the honest crusaders, those in the payroll of private companies,  and those who demand money. Lavina said national and international media organizations “lapped up” news of journalists’ killings when the headlines should have been the “declaration of war against red tape and unnecessary fees imposed on hapless citizens,” apart from the appointment of new Cabinet officials. The reduction was due to the downward movement in the generation charge, which more than offset a higher transmission charge, Meralco said. The decrease in the overall rate was primarily due to the generation charge, which has been P16 centavos per kWh less than last month’s, Meralco said. Charges from the Wholesale Electricity Spot Market (WESM) decreased by 98 centavos per kWh due to lower spot prices driven by the fewer generator outages during the May supply month compared to the previous month.
Cost of power from the Independent Power Producers (IPPs) decreased by 22 centavos per kWh.
Meanwhile, cost of power sourced from plants under the Power Supply Agreements (PSAs) was almost at the same level as last month, with only a slight increase of 2 centavos per kWh. Meralco said the lower generation charge more than offset an increase in the transmission charge of 6.6 centavos per kWh, due to higher ancillary or reserve power service charges. Beginning this June and up to November, the transmission charge will include the collection of an ancillary service differential that will go to PSALM. Taxes and other charges also decreased by a combined amount of around 33 centavos per kWh following the reduction in the generation charge. Meralco’s distribution, supply, and metering charges, meanwhile, have remained unchanged for 11 months, after they registered a reduction in July 2015. Payment for the generation charge goes to the power suppliers, Meralco says, while payment for the transmission charge goes to the National Grid Corp. With the onset of the rainy and typhoon season, Meralco has urged customers to practice some safety tips that could help prevent accidents from happening. One of the first things customers would do well to ensure when there is imminent flooding is to ensure that the main electrical power switch or circuit breaker is off, Meralco says. Especially after severe flooding, customers should have a licensed electrician check all electrical wires and accessories, including appliances that have been submerged in floodwater, before turning power on and using them again, Meralco said. DAVAO CITY – Four people, including a 7-year-old child, were killed when communist guerrillas clashed with paramilitary men in Bukidnon on Sunday. Ka Ariel “Inda” Magbanwag, spokesperson of the New People’s Army-South Central Bukidnon Sub-regional Command, said in a statement that communist guerrillas chanced upon members of the Magahat-Alamara paramilitary group along a river in the remote village of Indalasa in Malaybalay City on Sunday.
A five-minute firefight ensued, resulting in the death of suspected paramilitary leaders Ricky “Mankolobi” Bocalas and his brother Jojo “Manlumakad” Bocalas. Also killed in the firefight were Jojo’s wife Inay and their 7-year-old child, the communist leader admitted. Magbanwag said the Magahat was created by the military’s 8th Infantry Battalion and the 403rd Brigade in 2013. He added that the Magahat group merged with the Alamara of Emboy Diwangan and the Delamance group in 2015 to create a strong paramilitary group covering areas from Bukidnon to Agusan del Sur. The crimes allegedly committed by the group included the killing of lumad leader Arman Ampildon in Cabanglasan in Bukidnon in 2014. In July 2015, the group allegedly killed Louie Handayan and his wife Daynon while they were working on their rice field in San Luis town, Agusan del Sur, the NPA leader claimed.
Magbanwag said the group also killed 16-year-old Alvin Olinan and 30-year-old Jun Pabiana while they on their way home from working in their farms in Malaybalay City in September 2015.
In October last year, the group allegedly opened fire on a group of residents harvesting durian in Malaybalay City, killing Mariano Mankombete and hurting two of his grandchildren. The Sandiganbayan has denied the move of sacked Metro Rail Transit (MRT-3) General Manager Al Vitangcol III to allow the production of material evidence that would help him pin down outgoing Transportation Secretary Joseph Emilio “Jun” Abaya in the graft case over the MRT maintenance contract mess.
In a resolution, the anti-graft court Special Third Division said it denied the motion for lack of merit because Vitangcol failed to comply with the requirements for production of material evidence in the Rules of Court.
In a motion to allow production of material evidence and admissions by adverse party filed before the anti-graft court Third Division, Vitangcol asked the court to direct the Office of the Special Prosecutor to produce material evidence pertaining to officials the Ombudsman acquitted of the graft case. Vitangcol through his counsels asked the Ombudsman prosecutors to provide authenticated copies of the counter-affidavits of those acquitted, claiming that the Ombudsman did not provide him copies during the preliminary investigation. One of those Vitangcol wants to have a copy of is the counter-affidavit of Abaya, who was cleared by the Ombudsman in the graft indictment. The court said what Vitangcol was requesting were the counter-affidavits of his respondents in the case, although the Rules of Court only allow production of material evidence pertaining to written statements by the complainant and other witnesses. But the court nonetheless ordered the Ombudsman to provide Vitangcol with copies of the counter-affidavits as provided for by the Supreme Court that a petitioner may request for copies of the counter-affidavits of his co-accused. The court also denied Vitangcol’s motion to require the prosecution to admit under oath that Abaya in his counter-affidavit said the MRT maintenance contract was above board and that the MRT-3 had to enter into a negotiated procurement. Vitangcol had also wanted the prosecution to admit that Abaya in his affidavit said that he signed the notice of award to Philippine Trans Rail Management and Services Corp.
The court said Vitangcol’s purpose in his request for admission is not the proper subject for the request, as stated in the Rules of Court which said request for admission must only pertain to the genuineness of any material and relevant document.
The court also denied for being premature Vitangcol’s motion for subpoena to direct the MRT Corporation to produce the letters it received, saying that a subpoena may be requested by Vitangcol during trial.
In his motion for reconsideration on the Ombudsman’s graft indictment against him, Vitangcol asked the reason behind why Abaya, despite his signatures in the documents, was not indicted for the alleged graft-ridden maintenance contract with PH Trams. Ombudsman charged Vitangcol with graft for awarding without public bidding the interim maintenance contract for MRT-3 to PH Trams.
The Ombudsman also charged Vitangcol for failing to disclose that one of the incorporators of PH Trams—Arturo Soriano—is his wife’s uncle. Vitangcol was charged with PH Trams incorporators Wilson De Vera, Arturo Soriano, Marlo Dela Cruz, Manolo Maralit and Federico Remo. They are charged with violating Sections 3(e) and 3(h) of the Anti-Graft and Corrupt Practices Act and Section 65(c)(1) of the Government Procurement Reform Act, arising from the MRT-3 interim maintenance contract. Meanwhile, Section 3(h) of the antigraft law prohibits public officials from directly or indirectly having financial or pecuniary interest in any business, contract or transaction in connection with which he intervenes or takes part in his official capacity, or in which he is prohibited by the Constitution or by any law from having any interest. Vitangcol was recently indicted for two counts of graft over the alleged extortion try on Czech firm Inekon in exchange for contracts with the railway system. The Ombudsman said Vitangcol’s first graft charge stemmed from allegations that he attempted to extort $30 million from Inekon in exchange for contracts for the supply for additional light rail vehicles and maintenance of the MRT-3 in connection with the P3.7 billion MRT-3 expansion project in 2012.
Ombudsman investigation showed that Vitangcol sent his envoy Wilson De Vera to demand the payment of $30 million, later reduced to $2.5 million, for the Inekon to be awarded the contract. Vitangcol and De Vera were accused of extorting $30 million from Inekon Group CEO and chair Josef Husek in the residence of then Czech Ambassador to the Philippines Josef Rychtar in exchange for granting Inekon the P3.7-billion contract to supply 48 coaches for the MRT 3 expansion. Meanwhile, Vitangcol and De Vera’s second graft charge stemmed from the allegation that they conspired and insisted for Inekon to sign a joint venture agreement for the maintenance contract under a 60-40 percent sharing scheme with a group of persons which included De Vera, an incorporator of PH-Trams. Amid graft-ridden contracts under Vitangcol’s watch, the MRT is beset with operational breakdowns, delays and long lines of passengers daily.
In the surveillance footage broadcast by news sites and uploaded by BAT YouTube Channel on Monday, the mischievous monkey went bananas and assaulted an employee. The storekeeper tried to chase the athletic monkey, but the robbery incident happened so swift that he failed to catch the furry culprit. Pro-gun group Gun Owners in Action (Go Act) on Tuesday cautioned civilian gun owners against heeding the call of President-elect Rodrigo Duterte to kill drug dealers and criminals in exchange for a reward. But Moreno explained that to heed Duterte’s call, a person must not only be legally qualified to carry firearms.
Aside from skills and knowledge of the limits and rights, the group said one must also have the judgment and temperament to account for their actions.
Go Act, according to Moreno, is stepping up its campaign of training gun owners on the proper use of firearms as well as their legal responsibilities to the public. DAVAO CITY, Philippines—Mindanaoans are excited in a Rodrigo Duterte presidency as this will bring social justice to “neglected” Mindanao, the president of a Jesuit-run university here has said.
Tabora, a prominent member of the clergy and highly regarded academic, said the policies of the national government have benefited Luzon and Metro Manila but neglected Mindanao.
Tabora said a Duterte presidency would bring “a very clear social justice” to issues like the exploitation of resources in Mindanao. Hernando Bruce filed the complaint asking Lagman to be placed under lifestyle check and charged with plunder, a non-bailable offense of criminally accumulating at least P50 million in ill-gotten wealth. Citing a Commission on Audit report, Bruce charged Lagman with accumulating P240 million in cahoots with his daughter Krisel Lagman-Luistro during his term as Albay first district representative from 2007 to 2010. Bruce also asked the Ombudsman to conduct a lifestyle check on Lagman and investigate his statement of assets, liabilities, and net worth. Bruce asked the Ombudsman to include plunder on top of a graft complaint he earlier filed against Lagman on April 22. In the graft complaint, Bruce alleged that Lagman spent P86 million of his PDAF for projects in 28 barangays in Quezon City, as well as in Nueva Ecija and Pampanga, or outside his legislative districts.
The complainant said Lagman implemented projects in Quezon City where his son Edcel Lagman Jr. Bruce also cited audit reports in alleging that Lagman spent P18.5 million of his PDAF for projects constructed on private properties in Quezon City, which violates the Government Auditing Code of the Philippines that prohibit the use of public funds for private purposes.
Lagman also allegedly took advantage of his position as congressman when, between 2008 and 2009, he downloaded P29.6 million of his PDAF to Tabaco city, where his daughter Lagman-Luistro was mayor at the time. Of the projects, Lagman adopted a loan program not supported by a project proposal, a scholarship program not supported with a request from intended beneficiaries, and the procurement of supplies like computers, xerox machines, text books, among others not supported with the required documents. The complaint alleged that Lagman coursed his PDAF to “suppliers of questionable existence” to supply computers, books, foodstuff, medals, and trophies in Tabaco. Bruce said Lagman committed graft for causing undue injury to government in spending his PDAF outside his legislative district. Lagman also committed graft when he gave undue preference to the residents of Pampanga, Nueva Ecija, and Quezon City even though they were not his constituents. In a phone interview, Lagman said the funds alleged to have been spent outside his district were sourced from the leadership fund allotted to House leaders and committee chairpersons and duly earmarked in the General Appropriations Act.


He also said the complainant Bruce was part of his campaign in 1987 who started “badmouthing” him when Lagman refused to give Bruce a government post he was unqualified for. Lagman, the principal author of the Reproductive Health law, won back the Albay congressional seat in the May 9 polls, replacing his son Edcel “Grix” Lagman Jr., who served for one term in 2013 in place of his father who had reached the term limit. In a span of three days last week, from Thursday to Saturday, five men died by what appeared to be summary execution—two in Negros Occidental, two in Iloilo and one in Negros Oriental.
No official statistics have been issued by the Philippine National Police on whether vigilante justice is on the rise across the nation following the open endorsement of extrajudicial crime-fighting methods by the incoming administration of President-elect Duterte.
Dela Rosa, who served as Davao City police chief from January 2012 to October 2013, appears to be much in the mold of his mentor and boss. From the beginning, every time Duterte was forced to give an answer about his human-rights record as longtime mayor of Davao City—outside of his blustery dismissal of, say, the Commission on Human Rights and the international watchdog Human Rights Watch—this was his standard defense: that the suspects killed by what has been called the Davao Death Squad were resisting arrest and so had to be taken down. Human Rights Watch says that by and large, Davao police have turned a blind eye to these summary executions; no serious, wide-ranging investigation has been conducted to get to the bottom of the vigilante killings, and, worse, some police officers themselves may have acted in cahoots with gunmen in identifying targets.
His views on President-elect Rodrigo Duterte’s criticism of media practices, and in particular of those of national media organizations based in Manila, hold a special fascination for me then. I found his VIP lane version to be the most developed and on point, and I would like to engage with his views as he expressed them then, in a chance interview (the far better term for ambush interview, which came into use during the first Aquino administration) by national and local media.
He noted that the call for a boycott of Duterte’s rambling, provocative news conferences was aired by an international organization, and that the Philippine media did not heed that call. It is true that it was Paris-based Reporters Without Borders that suggested a boycott, and that the organization may have misread the situation. Not least, Cayetano also said this: “In my view, he is doing this deliberately before he takes his oath as president. All this is happening because fertility has been declining while health and longevity are improving. With more and more people living well beyond 80 years, senior citizens are now much more prominent in the population of the world more than in any period of human history. The authors further observed: “With improved health, education and economic security, this generation is able to continue to enjoy traveling, renovate their houses and buy luxury cars.
Still, there are the “oldest old,” or those 85 years and over, and this segment is also growing rapidly with constantly improving public health and longer life expectancies. Aging notes that the oldest old have the highest population levels of disability that require long-term care because of chronic disease.
The particular challenge now is that while most rich countries had decades to adjust to this change in age structure, many less developed countries are seeing these changes happen within a single generation.
The Philippines is somewhat luckier, as its historically higher population growth rate makes working-age people still the largest segment of our population for some time to come. One of the last official social functions hosted by P-Noy in Malacanang was the closing event of the Millennium Challenge Compact between the Philippine government and the Millennium Challenge Corp.
Visibly elated by the extension of life granted the Millennium Challenge Account Philippines (MCAP), which managed the MCC grant, were its chair, Finance Secretary Cesar Purisima, and manager, Victoria Anonuevo. US Ambassador Philip Goldberg said he saw for himself how the compact achieved its goals, having seen the major highway in Samar, talked with residents of areas benefiting from the Kalahi-CIDSS projects, as well as consulted with officials of the Bureau of Internal Revenue who attested to the efficiency of the new computerized system.
MCC CEO Dana Hyde said the second compact will focus on encouraging agricultural competitiveness and productivity in the country. P-Noy in turn spoke of the difficulties in governing in a situation of “unlimited wants and limited resources.”  He noted how the $434-million funding was used to build the basics of economic development, from better tax collection, improving the necessary infrastructure, to developing human resources at the most basic, local level. But to Public Works Secretary Rogelio “Babes” Singson, a board member of the MCAP, the biggest achievement of the compact was “the soft side,” involving the community and encouraging the empowerment of women. Naughty host RJ Ledesma encouraged guests to post their greetings to and photos of the “GoldenWeds” using the hashtag #edcelandcielowestilldo. Singles, marrieds and even old marrieds sighed with kilig and nostalgia over the overt show of sentimentality and romance from a couple who have awed us with their devotion to each other all these years. The last group made for a particularly rabid “cheering squad” since Edcel was not just the main sponsor of the Responsible Parenthood and Reproductive Health Law through the House and through the bicameral conference committee. EQUALLY memorable were dinners and parties held at the Lagman home in Quezon City, featuring luscious Bicolano cooking, where the congressman brought together friends from government and civil society to share celebratory occasions as well as to consult on difficult and awkward controversies. I remember at one dinner that Cielo joined us at the table, smiling graciously at the spirited conversation and debate around her.
Their eldest daughter Krisel, who held down Edcel’s House seat for two terms, tells of how Cielo stepped into the breach in all of Edcel’s congressional campaigns, especially when he served in the budget department and could not, by law, campaign for the seat he was contesting. Severe disquiet descended as Election Day ended with news of his victory in a country badly divided by his virulent campaign, with Facebook trolls spinning lies against his rivals and threats of rape and murder against those opposed to him. The latest Duterte zingers—not appointing Vice President-elect Leni Robredo to his Cabinet because he did not want to hurt the feelings of Bongbong Marcos, and apparent justification of the murder of corrupt journalists—are driving indignation to a new peak at this writing.
Barely a month since his victory, a country of 100 million is now on tenterhooks over Duterte’s flip-flopping pronouncements.
Theater man Frank Rivera’s “Tales of Pilandok” came to mind as I hurried to Google for a reacquaintance. In this tricky pass, these tales may just shed some light on what our body politic is going through.
Consider the tale of Pilandok’s mother sending him to collect mangoes from across the river. And so it seems that Duterte would have stayed sultan of Davao had not 16.5 million Filipino voters been gulled.
The last time myth and fable impacted our country in this way, we got “Malakas and Maganda”—and martial law. Pilandok’s casual dismissal of murdered journalists—“Just because you’re a journalist, you’re not exempted from assassination if you’re a son of a bitch”—had the National Union of Journalists of the Philippines, Foreign Correspondents Association of the Philippines, Center for Media Freedom and Responsibility, and College Editors Guild issuing strong protest statements. With a tundra biome covering much of its terrain, Iceland also does not have the lush and biodiverse tropical forests in the Philippines, which also happen to be the locations of actual or potential sources of geothermal energy such as Mount Apo in Southern Mindanao and Cagua Volcano in Cagayan. These differences notwithstanding, we have a lot of similarities with Iceland, not least of which is the presence of volcanoes—for both countries, both a blessing and curse.
But Icelanders have a great respect for their volcanoes, and the Icelandair Boeing 757 I took to get here was even named after Hekla—their most active volcano once thought to be the “Gateway to Hell.” And of course they have turned volcanoes into blessings by harnessing their energy for the people.
The example of Iceland should inspire us to pursue clean energy further—if not for its intrinsic benefits and the “clean living” consciousness it engenders, then for its relative harmlessness compared to fossil fuels. And this brings me to an important lesson: We must evaluate sources of energy, not in absolute terms, but in relation to other sources of energy.
As we left the power station, the barren landscape of moss-covered lava fields and snowy mountains greeted me: a reminder that it is much easier to build a geothermal station where there are no trees, and where there are no people. Even so, in light of the Philippines’ growing energy demands and faced with the far-worse option of resorting to fossil fuels, I think we should keep giving geothermal energy a chance. The rest of my hospital memories were a blur of crying spells, talking to whoever came by to visit, walking in and out of the intensive care unit, silently praying, then crying again. The bad thing about death is that it leaves you empty-handed, it drains you of what is good, it numbs you, and it ultimately breaks you. My husband always pulled me back up on my feet so that I could walk toward the right direction. We were together for 13 years, eight of which were spent as boyfriend-girlfriend and five as husband-wife. In the midst of this tragedy, I find comfort in knowing that my husband did a great deal of good things. At this writing, six days after his death, I’m still searching for him in our house, calling his name out loud, hitting myself so that maybe I can wake up from this very, very bad dream.
Everything seemed normal, smooth-flowing, until one day I realized that I was never your priority even if I considered you mine. I never questioned your sincerity when you sent me sweet and caring text messages, when you called me up at night to ask if I’m all right.
I sighed with such relief when I eventually came to my senses before my heart went insane and overruled my whole being. This time, I am enjoying life being unattached, being free, and being with the people who really matter—my family, my nephews and nieces, my cousins, and a few close, real friends. I realize it’s unfair to compare our impoverished country with developed countries in the West, where women almost equal the number of men in Cabinet or key government positions. However, our new leader seems to think only his childhood pals are fit to help him run the country, which reflects an arrested adolescence in someone who should behave like an adult to gain his people’s respect. Admittedly there are not as many Filipino women who have attained higher educational status, like the feisty Miriam Defensor Santiago and other professionals who have made names for themselves in various male-dominated fields. Shame on the President-elect for his tunnel vision which only sees men as capable officials, and views women as peripheral beings fit to be relegated to his outer circle. Alveo Land’s “The Gentry” project has residential, office and retail components pitching the “understated, exclusive affluence of Salcedo Village” at the heart of the Makati central business district (CBD), Alveo chief operating officer Jennylle Tupaz said in a press briefing. This suggests that studio units (36 percent of inventory) will be priced at around P5 million while one-bedroom units (28 percent of total) will be sold for around P9-P11 million and two-bedroom units (26 percent) at around P16 million.
The residential component will have a footprint of 35,639 sqms while another 30,304 sqms will be earmarked for office use. The project will rise in a parking lot behind Insular Life building acquired by Alveo from Bank of the Philippine Islands. This is also the first Alveo project with a generous glass ratio of 40 percent, which means there will be more windows than the typical condominium units in the metropolis, resulting in natural lighting and ventilation.
Additional features of the residential development include an interior-designed lobby, and an amenity level at the ninth floor amenity featuring a 20-meter lap pool and a kiddie pool, kid’s play area and flexible function rooms with outdoor spill over area. Part of its current portfolio include signature residential and office-for-sale projects Solstice and The Stiles Enterprise Plaza in Circuit Makati, and Alveo Financial Tower along Ayala Avenue.
THE LOCAL stock barometer rallied to the 7,700 mark for the first time this year on Tuesday as rising bets of a gradual increase in interest rates by the US central bank boosted risk appetite across emerging markets.
The latest clues given out by the US Federal Reserve are seen to push back earlier expectations of the Fed raising rates as early as June or July. The closing level on Tuesday marked the PSEi’s best level since May 26, 2015 when the index closed at 7,728.50. ALI, PLDT, BDO, GTCAP, Jollibee and EDC all advanced by over 2 percent while JG Summit, SM Prime and Megaworld all rose by over 1 percent.

BEIJING, China — US firms feel increasingly unwelcome in China, top American officials said Tuesday, as disagreements overshadowed an annual dialogue in Beijing. He added that a Chinese law on foreign non-governmental organizations, including universities and professional groups, set to come into force next year would seriously curtail their ability of to work in China. Lew and Kerry made their comments in a meeting with CEOs from US corporations including metals manufacturer Alcoa, which has accused China of dumping aluminum on world markets. The group also included executives from China’s Wanda Group, whose recent overseas buying spree included the purchase of Hollywood studio Legendary earlier this year. The event came on the second day of the annual dialogue whose opening was marked by pointed exchanges on China’s alleged overproduction of steel.
Commuters using Metro Manila’s elevated train system have more options for reloading their Beep cards. With the partnerships, AF Payments said about 60 Bayad Center outlets “nearest the train stations” now serve as reloading points for Beep cards. Tambunting, Villarica, and SM Business Centers are all part of Bayad Center’s payment collection network, the company added. Maher said they were working on expanding the use of the Beep card for cashless transactions in buses, toll roads, and retail. AF Payments was born after Metro Pacific and Ayala won in 2014 the Automated Fare Collection System public private partnership project of the transportation department.

The Constitution cannot help you if you defame someone,” he said when asked how he would deal with the problem of media killings in the Philippines after a reporter was shot dead in Manila in late May. You won’t be killed if you don’t do anything wrong,” Duterte said, adding that many journalists in the Philippines were corrupt.
This was mainly due to an improvement in the dispatch of the QPPL coal plant in Quezon province. Meralco has said it does not earn from the pass-through charges, such as the generation and transmission charges. They must unplug appliances from wall sockets and turn off permanently connected equipment and unscrew all light bulbs if possible. Customers must also make sure that all electrical wires, connectors and other wiring devices are completely dry. However, it was subject to the approval of DOTC (Department of Transportation and Communication) (Undersecretary (Jose) Lotilla and Secretary Abaya… The contract would not have been awarded to PH Trams and CB&T JV had it not been for the subsequent approval of Lotilla and Abaya,” Vitangcol’s motion said.
The perception of many Mindanaoans—is that the military defends the interest of the north rather than the interest of all,” he said.
Edcel Lagman on Tuesday was sued for plunder before the Ombudsman for alleged ill-gotten wealth and hidden properties allegedly funded by his pork barrel funds.
I have filed my statement of assets, liabilities, and net worth regularly and I have no hidden property … That’s completely fabricated,” Lagman said. It will probably take a while before the police under the command of Duterte’s designated PNP head, Chief Supt. He has taken to cursing in public like Duterte, and is an enthusiastic backer of Duterte’s methods.
Apparently, all 1,400 of those killed—the conservative number documented by human rights groups since 1998, consisting mostly of drug users, street urchins and petty thieves, with uniformly impoverished backgrounds—were sufficiently foolhardy to slug it out with armed arresting officers, thus winding up dead. In interviews, Duterte himself has hardly been shy about his role in envisioning the ruthless tenor of his city: “Only 1,000?” he said in reply to a question about the number of deaths attributed to him.
During his victory party in Davao over the weekend, he declared that citizens are hereby free to arrest and shoot drug dealers and other criminals. But there was never any question of not covering the President-elect because of the way he talks; it was, and remains, a question of reporting what he said AND how he said it. Media organizations are profoundly aware that corruption continues to bedevil the industry; we have not yet fully recovered from the strategic coopting of the media during the Marcos era. So it won’t be said that the powers of the presidency [are] being used against any network. For the first time in history, the number of people aged 65 years and over (“older people”) will exceed the number of children under 5.
More developed countries began to see declining fertility in the early 1900s, leading to current fertility levels that are below the population replacement rate of two live births per woman.


But unlike past generations of the elderly, the coming cohort of senior citizens would be the first to age with a generally higher level of health and education, owing to dramatic technological developments that have improved public health and education. This is in fact the fastest-growing population segment in the developed world, with women dominating this age group at a ratio of two to one. On a global level, the 85-and-over population was projected to increase 151 percent between 2005 and 2030, compared to a 104-percent increase for the population aged 65 and over, and a 21-percent increase for the population under age 65. As such, they consume a disproportionate amount of public resources, which can be a fiscal burden to less-endowed economies. It took France more than a century for its population aged 65 and above to increase from 7 to 14 percent of total population; Brazil will take only two decades to see the same demographic aging process transpire. But with fast-dropping fertility rates, this could change within a generation, as it did in Brazil.
Obviously, the new compact is a testament to the excellent handling of the funds and of the projects, as well as of the trust extended to the Philippine government.
Also crucial are the transparency and efficiency of the people charged with managing the process, and tapping the strengths of the people who are not just beneficiaries but also partners in the full and truest sense of the word. Edcel Lagman and his wife Cielo who celebrated their golden wedding anniversary last Saturday with a reception at the Rizal Ballroom of the Makati Shangri-La. But of course that didn’t stop Ledesma, who is noted for his humor column in another paper, from urging the couple to “still do it” by repeatedly urging “Cong” Edcel to give his bride of 50 years a kiss.
Not to be outdone, their seven children, 16 grandchildren and one great-grandchild put up a show for the GoldenWeds and their guests.
In the years since the law’s passage, he was likewise a regular presence at the Supreme Court hearings after “prolife” groups questioned the constitutionality of the law (which they lost) and then continued to frustrate the spirit of the law by getting the high court to issue a TRO on contraceptives. Though she has devoted much of her married life to rearing her large family, Cielo brought to the marriage her strength of personality and her own achievements. She was, indeed, a full partner not just in the marriage and in child-rearing, but also in the full, storied and enviable political legacy he will surely leave behind.
Not a day passes without Rodrigo Duterte spewing some outrageous statement that makes one’s hair stand on end. First he chose Salvador Panelo—the lawyer of the warlord accused of the murder of 32 media persons in Maguindanao—as his presidential spokesman. King Croc is both angry and hungry enough to eat him right then, but Pilandok’s gift of gab knows no bounds. Pilandok convinces the sultan to come visit an underwater kingdom full of treasures that he has just found.
Does his victory run by the greedy on the backs of the gullible not remind you of how Pilandok pulled a fast one on both the sultan and King Croc? Succeeding administrations had their share of brouhahas, sure, but no other presidency since Marcos quite equals Duterte’s ongoing knockout punch on the Filipino psyche. The President-elect’s words are easily misinterpreted as a declaration of open season on all Filipino journalists, they said. Mayuga is an essayist, sometime columnist, poet, documentary filmmaker and environmentalist. When I visited the Hellishei?i Power Station, the third largest geothermal power station in the world, our guide boasted: “The average Icelandic household only pays $80 a month for water and electricity. It is very expensive here in Iceland: Even just a bed in a youth hostel costs 8,000 krona (around P3,000) a night. Settled by Vikings in the ninth century, the island-country has a population of only 330,000—despite being larger than Mindanao. We do love hot springs (which is why Pansol in Calamba is such a traffic hotspot), but we are more wont to seek the air-conditioned sanctuaries of our cars and shopping malls—and whenever there is an opportunity, the cool climate of Baguio or the breeziness of Tagaytay. Thus, there is much less debate on environment impacts: I suppose it’s much easier to bulldoze lava fields than cut trees to make way for geothermal stations.
Just as Mount Pinatubo devastated Central Luzon in 1991, volcanic eruptions have ravaged Iceland throughout its history. In the Philippines, too, volcanic eruptions have made soil fertile in various areas, and we are actually the second largest geothermal energy producer in the world. While coal plants have been shown to increase rates of cancer and heart and lung problems— among many other health hazards—geothermal energy is generally harmless to human health. While a larger rethink of our energy demands is in order, we must deal with the inevitable need to generate power and act on the power crisis that is at hand. Whenever I think of Mount Talinis and its beautiful forests, I am mindful that the activists there have legitimate concerns that companies like Energy Development Corp. When I married Iamie five years ago, he was fully committed to becoming a family man: He put us first above anything and anyone else.
Having been together for that long, we always had a special routine or a specific combo that made us the perfect tandem although he was a photographer and I was a doctor. My eldest child would wonder why Daddy was always sleeping, and my youngest would just smile when asked about him.
Think of the United Kingdom under Prime Minister David Cameron and the United States under President Barack Obama, and Canada under Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. He has appointed only two women to his Cabinet—to the education and social welfare posts, but not one of them is our sterling Vice President-elect Leni Robredo despite the fact that she would be ideal for the latter department. But because it’s mainly the women who slave abroad to help fill the nation’s coffers, one would think the country’s leader would acknowledge, in one form or another, their contribution to society.
A prime location boasting of a strong multi-use concept makes it a rare and exciting opportunity for our clients,” said Tupaz.
Alveo is investing around P3 billion to build the residential tower, where units will be turned over to buyers by mid-2022. It is situated within the high-powered Makati CBD and is in close proximity to Makati’s Urban Oasis, the Ayala Triangle Gardens. The offer also includes “investor suites,” each of which will have a private two-bedroom unit attached to a studio unit that could be leased out or offered to visiting guests.
It has launched a total of 15 towers of residential, office and mixed-use spaces across Makati, investing around P27 billion over 13 years in Makati alone.
We are committed to helping commuters save time, and an important part of this is to find convenient loading points outside of the stations. A The recent high school graduate in our family had her open house in July, because she didn't want it to conflict with her peers that were having theirs in June.
A Sorry kids but if mom and dad are out of town they can see if you put beer in the fridge. I'll never forget feeling ashamed at times when I had to breastfeed my children when I was out and many times would just stay home so I wouldn't have to deal with anyone judging me. 3019 prohibits public officials from causing any undue injury to any party, including the Government, or giving any private party any unwarranted benefits, advantage or preference in the discharge of his official administrative or judicial functions through manifest partiality, evident bad faith or gross inexcusable negligence. Two were shot dead by motorcycle-riding gunmen, and the bodies of the other three were found riddled with gunshot wounds, their hands tied behind their back.
Asked to clarify Duterte’s “shoot-to-kill” order on suspected criminals, Dela Rosa said it would apply only “if the criminal fights back or is armed.” And if the suspect gives up peacefully? Deputizing citizens in this way does not strengthen the institutions of the law; it only fatally weakens them. He is a rare breed of politician in that sense; he seeks to engage even his (occasional) critics, confident in his ability to make his case. It is important to emphasize that I know of no Philippine media organization which even considered the possibility of a boycott: It would have been an abdication of duty.
But while I continue to hold the hope that as President the man who still prefers to be called mayor (or CM, for city mayor) can conduct “a real dialogue” with the media, in much the same way he engaged editors and reporters of the Inquirer last August, the news conferences since then may be more accurately called monologues. Today, media organizations get a lot of flak on social media for allegedly twisting Duterte’s words, or spinning them, but in fact—and this is something that can be easily checked—controversies from Duterte’s media interviews (or his speeches during the campaign and his interventions at the debates) do not arise from his words, which are reported faithfully, sometimes in all their gruesomeness, but from the consequences of his words. At the same time, we are also keenly aware that the media landscape is shifting rapidly; credibility, the currency we value the most, is now defined in different ways, as authority, or authenticity, or availability, and so on.
Since the 1950s, the graph of the former as a percentage of total global population has been rising, while the graph for the latter has been falling. Surprisingly, fertility has declined at an even faster pace in many less developed countries in the past 20 years.
In particular, public health has seen great advancements in disease prevention and control, while advances in the neurosciences and in information and communication technology have similarly enhanced the state of education.
The present senior citizens and elderly are very different from their predecessors of, say, 10-15 years ago. Being above 60 no longer means looking, behaving and acting in the image of a grandparent of yesteryears.
This means that we must achieve and sustain high and inclusive growth and attain high-income status within this generation, lest our economy grow old before it grows rich.
The MCC was created by legislative fiat by the US Congress (during the term of President George W. Family members and friends made up the bulk of the guests that night, along with former and current political colleagues of the newly-elected congressman, and representatives of the legal profession, labor organizations (Edcel is a prominent labor lawyer) and reproductive health advocates. In between, Edcel was also a favorite resource person at different symposiums on the issue of reproductive health.
A student leader like Edcel, she had begun her own legal training until, after several years of being in a relationship with Edcel (whom she had known since their childhood), they got married and began their family.
All women and men—and not just reproductive health advocates—will always remember him with gratitude. Then came his first choice for his Cabinet—a real estate scion with clear vested interests for the public works and highways portfolio. Such real-life surrealism easily summons that folk hero of Duterte’s native Mindanao—Pilandok, who must have seeped into his psyche in his youth. Here emerges Pilandok’s persuasive power, convincing King Croc to prove his might by summoning all his followers. This time he promises to give King Croc his own liver to eat if he is allowed to fetch it from his home. A mesmerized sultan follows Pilandok to the river, where the trickster pushes him to drown.
The global Reporters Without Borders urged Filipino journalists to boycott Duterte’s press conferences. We are so blessed!” He proceeded to show how the turbines are able to produce 180 megawatts and to power the entire city of Reykjavik, the world’s northernmost capital. But utilities are cheap, whereas in the Philippines even just a condominium unit can end up costing the $80 in electricity alone. Amazingly, there is even a beach heated by the excess hot water—and thermal greenhouses where they grow bananas!
While coal plants account for a third of the world’s carbon dioxide emissions, geothermal stations emit just 5 percent of the carbon dioxide emitted by a coal-fired plant of equal size. With low oil prices in the global market, fossil-fuel-based energy is the easy way out—but we have to consider its long-term consequences. I think that the pain comes from my very own regret—that I could have spent more time with him, that I could have been more of the wife and mom he wanted me to be, that maybe I could have done something to prevent his death and prolong his life.
It was heartbreaking to realize how much we have outlived him—no more birthdays, graduations, anniversaries or Christmases with him.
She is a second-year resident in training of the Department of Internal Medicine at Batangas Medical Center.
But because she is not in the charmed circled or that old boys’ network, she’s looked on as beyond the pale. Furthermore, it is also directly adjacent to Ayala Avenue and is within the serene Salcedo Village,” she said. Our base case remains September,” said American investment bank BofA Merrill Lynch said in a reserve note. Bayad Center is the perfect starting point because of their huge network, covering virtually all of Metro Manila,” Peter Maher, CEO and President of AF Payments, said in the statement. The most gruesome case had the victim’s hands cut off and a cardboard sign placed beside the corpse: He was a thief, an addict and a member of the Akyat Bahay gang, and others like him will be next, according to the message.
The murder hardly merited mention in the papers; it seemed to be, in the context of Davao at least, just one of those things. When I had the chance to interview him during the campaign period, the vice presidential candidate was his usual articulate self—he mentioned the fact that I had criticized him before, but only in passing, and only as an example of the difference in our responsibilities: his as a politician, mine as a journalist. But none of these old and new problems justify the extrajudicial killing of any journalist. The two graphs will cross over this year, ushering in a new era wherein the world will have more older people than young children. Aside from there being so many more of them, they are also more healthy, more educated, more wealthy, and more active. Some less-developed nations are forced to confront issues such as social support and allocation of resources across generations, but without the accompanying economic growth that characterized the experience of aging societies in the West.
Have we actually opened a door to the realm of myth and fable with our first President from Mindanao?
Naive King Croc lets Pilandok hop on his tribe’s backs again to go fetch his liver, which, of course, never happens. Pilandok returns to the palace wearing the sultan’s cape and crown; he is now the new sultan of the realm. With a population over 300 times more, spread out in so many islands, powering the Philippines is a far greater challenge. If we are to be a leader in showing the world how to make a stand against climate change, if we are to make a country a cleaner place, we must let go of our dependence on fossil fuels—just as Iceland, once an importer of coal and oil, did many decades ago. During my interview I was asked: “What if you will be assigned to the Visayas or Mindanao for a medical mission? As I engaged in daily conversations with people to whom we were very close, I began to realize that he would always love me, that in one way or another he would continue to be there for me and our kids, and that even death would not break what we have. It reached the point that I lost sight of my dreams, my goals and my aspirations because I was so in love with you. At any rate, the joke that has been making the rounds since last month is that in the next six years, the surefire businesses to get into are not only funeral parlors but also manufacturing of trash bags, packing tape and cardboard.
The estimate for 2030 is 1 billion older people, accounting for 13 percent of the total population. In a 2009 paper, Ilona Kickbusch and Prisca Boxler wrote: “Who would have thought in the 1960s that the Rolling Stones would still be touring 40 years later, or that the audiences of many rock concerts would be well into their 60s!
I would like to believe that the law of opposites governed us: We were living examples that opposites do attract.
It operates the Beep card fare payment system now used in the Metro Rail Transit Line 3 as well as Light Rail Transit Line 1 and LRT-2.
A If the young adult will be going away to college, they will be on their own for the first time most likely.
The proportions of older people are typically highest in more developed countries, but their numbers are now growing faster in the less developed world. Who would have thought that the sale of electric guitars would peak in Japan when the first baby boomers started to retire? There he feasts on ripe mangoes, has himself a great nap, then picks a bagful of the fruit for his mother.
My husband knows the nature of my job and he has always been there as a father and mother to our kids.” And he was. A 140-percent increase in the number of older people is projected for less developed countries between 2006 and 2030, nearly three times faster than the 51-percent increase expected in more developed countries. A Consequently, bedding, towels and a gift basket with a roll of quarters and washing suds would serve as an appropriate gift.
