Ratzinger who two years ago condemned Harry potter as "corrupt (a sentiment shared by Becky Fischer)," and who in his infinite wisdom cried that the Internet is bad, has confessed in his new book John Paul II, My Beloved Predecessor that he failed to stop Bob Dylan from playing for the late Pope. Paranoid that he is, Ratzinger believe without proof that Bob Dylan was a "prophet." A prophet who according to Ratzinger should not be allowed to appear in public stages. Ratzinger, who was just a Cardinal then, was forced to endure a set by Dylan. read more... » 10 Yahoo Answers Philippines Launched March 13, 2007 | Design | Philippines 3 of 9 3/24/2007 2:56 PM
  • Basang Panaginip http://basangpanaginip.blogspot.com/ {Photo by Chin Wong} Yahoo! Answers Philippines launched last week and so far the answers, specially from the top users, are nothing but delightful. Chin Wong in his Manila Standard Today column pondered on the challenge that Yahoo Answers had to, well, answer: how to make "sure that the right people see the right questions." Muddling through Yahoo! Answers Philippines, the look and color scheme of which is consistent with Yahoo Answers Blog - Green, green and more green - a trend which reverberate in other lime coated Web 2.0 companies. Furthermore I couldn't help but think of Rico Mossesgeld's blog. Fool for Five was after all built on a concept of Rico asking question and answering it himself - a mirror monologue ruminations. Yahoo, on the other hand, took the question portion and flung it unto the community to create a multi-part dialogue - a forum built or ruined (depending on your answer) by trust. read more... » Talk How to Save Philippines from Sinking March 05, 2007 | Atheism | Philippines 4 of 9 3/24/2007 2:56 PM
  • Basang Panaginip http://basangpanaginip.blogspot.com/ When I was around 10 years old, my mother exiled me for attempting to watch the pre-EDSA revolution protests. This was during the early 80s. Waking up at dawn, I would traverse streets selling newspapers, just so I can have enough pocket money to visit the protests sites. I was able to keep this secret from my mother for a few months, but as what happens with youth, a series of blunders led me to being found out. There, in a small provincial town north of Luzon, the beauty of nature stood naked, with it's glistening river, obscure crocodile-filled swamp, and rolling hills. There, in the back of a carabao, atop a caimito tree, I found the simple pleasures of this planet we call earth. This glimmer of joyous youth, was marred with a black dot, as a few years back before my kindergarten, I witnessed the nearby river swallowed whole this beautiful town. The typhoon and incessant torrent of rain spilled over creating a chest-level flood. Many evacuated, and I remember groups of people huddled on the 2nd floor of a neighbor Chinese convenient store. read more... » 1 Video: Christian Fundamentalists Teaching 5 of 9 3/24/2007 2:56 PM

As babies, we have no conception of Jesus, Abraham, or Mohammad. Yet fundamentalists tell us otherwise - that we are born Christians, Jews or Muslim. Growing up, some of us are bombarded with dogmas that our young, innocent minds accepted without question - adults know it all as the story goes. Some us outgrow the teachings of our parents that Santa Claus gave the gift under the Christmas tree. Yet, woe to others, many growing up couldn't shake the white bearded old man, many still believe that he is the gift-giver. read more... » 6 The Scariest Movie of the Year: Catholic Priest Raping Children February 25, 2007 | Atheism 6 of 9 3/24/2007 2:56 PM

The Paraw Regatta, perhaps the oldest sailing event in Southeast Asia, is held every February depending on weather conditions. This event has been instituted in 1973 and thus became an annual celebration of Ilonggo’s maritime life. The regatta reminisces the escape of the Ten Bornean Datus to escape the tyranny of Sultan Makatunaw that led them to Panay Island along with their families using the “balanghai” or sail boats that has been copied by the modern “paraw”. 6 of 8 3/24/2007 2:57 PM

  • [m]channel (markzchannel) - Pinoy Entertainment Blog http://markzchannel.blogspot.com/ napakalaking tele-epiko. Sa presscon ay nagbigay ng background si Deo Endrinal (executive in charge of production) kung paano nabuo ang ambisyosong proyekto. Nagsimula raw itong i-conceptualize noong October-November of 2005 kaya it took them one and a half years para mabuo ito. In fact, hanggang ngayon, nasa last stages of taping pa sila. Sa paghahanap na lang ng location para maitayo ang mundo ng Rounin ay kumain na sila ng katakut-takot na oras at araw. Nakakita sila ng isang 44-hectare abandoned cement factory at dalawang buwan ang ginugol para maitayo ang mga bayan ng Lumeria, Helion, Vesta, Argos at Icarra. Ang lahat ng cast ay sumailalim sa three-month rigid training ng iba't ibang uri ng martial arts, tulad ng capoeira, muay thai, judo, kali (arnis at knife fighting) at wushu. Sa kauna-unahang pagkakataon ay nakipagtulungan ang ABS-CBN sa Reality Pictures at Larger than Life Productions para sa gagamiting special effects ng serye. Dito naubos ang pinakamaraming oras ng paghahanda para sa Rounin, dahil isang shot lang daw ay inaabot ng isang buwan para sa effects. Nagsimulang gawin ang special effects noong July, 2006 at hanggang ngayon, abala pa ang mahigit 1,000 technicians ng Larger than Life para masigurong mamamangha ang manonood. Sa April 16 na magsisimulang mapanood ang Rounin at ito ang kauna-unahang high definition series na ipalalabas sa Philippine TV, mula sa direksyon ni Erik Matti with fight director Philip Kho and co-directors Jerome Pobocan at Richard Somes.

Imposible rin daw makawala sa kanya si Gerald dahil may kontrata siya rito. 3 of 45 3/24/2007 2:59 PM

"Hindi na siya natuto. Yung ginagawa niya noon kay Joross Gamboa at naging problema nila, eh, ginagawa na naman niya ngayon kay Gerald, sabi pa nito. Samantala, hindi pa namin personal na nakakausap si Gerald kaya hindi pa namin alam ang side niya. Regarding our source of this story, sigurado kaming hindi siya nagsisinungaling dahil siya mismo ang kumausap kay Jun para ayusin ang tungkol sa commission issue sa kanila ni Gerald kasama ang isa pang sikat na TV host. "Natunugan na siguro niya (manager) ang plano ni Gerald kaya bantay-to-death siya ngayon sa mga taping nito. Kung saan magpunta si Gerald, nandon din siya. Pero wala na siyang magagawa kung sakaling ang talent na niya ang umayaw sa kanya at magreklamo," wika naman ng lady reporter na dati ring malapit sa manager ni Gerald.

  • [m]channel (markzchannel) - Pinoy Entertainment Blog http://markzchannel.blogspot.com/ Big Brother asked the housemates to rehearse their dance steps for the song assigned to them. Mickey choreographed majority of the steps while some housemates pitch in their ideas. The song, if i'm not mistaken, is from ABS-CBN's Summer Station ID and as part of the housemates' task, they should come up with a dance number. So here's a video clip of them rehearsing in the living area. Wondering what Nel was doing? Since Nell was the 5th housemate to answer big brother's call from the big red phone, he can't dance with his fellow housemates. The 5th call is bad news and constitutes being a house pet for a day. Did that stop him from dancing? Hell No! He's making his own moves in one corner as shown in this pic. hehe 5 of 45 3/24/2007 2:59 PM

Aminado si Edu na parang si Kris na rin ang nagbigay sa kanya ng extra income bukod sa ginagawa niyang Walang Kapalit teleserye with Claudine Barretto and Piolo Pascual. "You're doing good, huh!" sey pa ni Kris. Kaya ikinuwento pa ni Edu na sinisimulan na niyang i-enjoy ang hosting sa PGKNB? Biro ni Kris, "You want the show?

Mukhang hindi na raw kasi magtatagal at aalis na rin sa poder ni Jun ang talent niyang si Gerald. 9 of 45 3/24/2007 2:59 PM
  • [m]channel (markzchannel) - Pinoy Entertainment Blog http://markzchannel.blogspot.com/ Ang dahilan, pera! Hindi raw nagkakasundo sa pera ang dalawa dahil masyadong naaagrabyado si Gerald sa komisyon na kinukuha ni Jun dito. Bukod daw sa komisyon na kinukuha ng ABS-CBN Star Magic, kumukuha rin si Jun ng hiwalay na 30% sa binata kaya halos kalahati na lang o mas mababa pa roon ang natitira kay Gerald. Isang very reliable source namin ang nagkumpirma tungkol sa problemang ito ni Gerald sa kanyang manager. Ang katwiran naman daw ng manager, ginagastusan niya si Gerald kaya wala itong karapatang magreklamo. Pinapa-presscon daw ni Jun si Gerald at doon napupunta ang bahagi ng komisyon na kinukuha niya. Giit naman ng source namin: "Oo nga, ipinapa-presscon niya pero ilang reporters lang ba ang ini-invite niya. Yung dating mga close kay Gerald at tumutulong sa kanya noon di naman niya naiimbita. At saka, hindi na kailangan ng presscon ngayon ni Gerald. Very visible siya sa TV, huh!" Pinagsabihan na rin si Jun ng isang female TV host na malapit sa kanya ang executive producer ng isang programa ng Dos na ayusin ang problema sa pagitan nila ni Gerald. Kung saka-sakali nga naman kasi na umalis si Gerald sa poder ni Jun, eh, wala na siyang magagawa kahit pa may kontrata silang dalawa. On the lighter side, going strong pa rin ang loveteam nina Gerald at Kim Chiu na regular na napapanood sa Sana Maulit Muli ng ABS-CBN. With or without Jun Reyes, alam namin na makakaya pa rin namang maka-survive ni Gerald dahil tiyak na hindi siya pababayaan ng Star Magic (Article courtesy of journal.com.ph) Labels: General, Kapamilya, KIMERALD, Sana Maulit Muli, Showbiz News, Star Magic, TV Shows Posted By Markymark @ 10:23 AM Comments | Trackback 10 of 45 3/24/2007 2:59 PM

Sa kasaysayan ng telebisyon, we'd say na ito na yata ang pinaka-star-studded kung ganun. Pero dahil sa rami, hindi kasya sa espasyo kung babanggitin namin ang lahat ng cast members, aside from the fact na hindi rin namin sila memorized lahat. Basta ang major cast ay sina Diether Ocampo, Angelica Panganiban, Shaina Magdayao, Rayver Cruz, Luis Manzano, Joross Gamboa, Melissa Ricks, Jhong Hilario, Rafael Rossel, Nikki Gil at marami pang iba. Sa April 23 na magsisimula ang airing nito replacing Maging Sino Ka Man, at balitang pantapat sa Lupin ng GMA-7 starring Richard Gutierrez. Bukod sa pinaka-star-studded, isa rin daw ito sa most expensive Tv series to be aired on Philippine television. Bukas ang grand presscon ng Rounin at ang malaking tanong, makarating kaya lahat ang 85 stars na kasama sa serye?

Jeremy and Mikah's personalities may be missed inside the Big Brother house, but it was Kian who was treated to an unfortunate twist of fate. After he was automatically nominated, three other housemates joined him as well, in Pinoy Big Brother Season Two's first official nomination night. Jasmin received the most votes from her peers. Twelve votes said she was a bit bossier than usual, and that her finger-pointing turned out to be a big issue as well. Upon learning this, Jasmin appealed to her mates in Davao, Zamboanga and Osamis, saying: "Kaya ko dito, pinapakita ko 20 of 45 3/24/2007 2:59 PM

Gee-Ann, who over the last few days expressed a yearning to leave the PBB House, may just get her wish in a week. Although she changed her mind, the stigma remained, and it reflected into five votes against her. She asked for support, but not only for herself: "Marami pa kaming maipapakita ni Pamela sa loob." Bea was the last to be nominated. Her five votes stemmed from the observation that she was at times insincere, and a little bossy. Her voice was shaky when she said: "To my family thank you, kase pinagdadasal nila ako." Here's the official tally of the nomination for eviction. I'm guessing it's gonna be jasmin that would go home next week because of her attitude problem. Although she was trying her best to change her bossy attitude, it wasn't enough to swing the votes of her fellow housemates. But then, we won't know how the voting will turn out since she's from the south and probably have a lot of supporters. We'll just have to see who will be evicted next week.

Is Gee-Ann really up for a voluntary exit? Or is it just the people's way of patching totally different things to come up with a speculation? Gee-Ann had spent a lot of time in the confession room talking to big brother but of course, the livestream does not show it because it's supposed to be "for primetime only". Could they be talking about her voluntary exit or something else? Gee-ann said that she feels that she's not doing her purpose in the house and that makes her depressed considering that she also had a lot of violations. She's also worried on how people outside think of her especially her family. She never mentioned that she is indeed voluntarily exiting the house so I guess we just have to wait and see... More updates : Wendy and Zeke at the housemates' open forum Zeke opened up the talk with an apology. Zeke said sorry to any housemate who got offended with the rough attitude he showed the other day. He said that he was just stressed out from the "secret task" and that he never meant to offend anyone. Wendy immediately followed Zeke with her side of the story. Wendy told Zeke that she was not happy with hearing the F-word from Zeke, and that there have been several occassion when Zeke was too tactless. According to Wendy, she had tried so hard to understand Zeke, but to no avail, she continues to get offended with Zeke's words. It was an emotional exchange of words between Zeke and Wendy in front of the other housemates. When Zeke realized that the talk was going nowhere and it was pointless to argue, Zeke approached Wendy and gave her a hug of peace. At this point, Wendy burst into tears as Zeke placed his arms around her.

Nominado ang mainstream movie naman ni Direk Dante na Kaleldo. Samantala, ang isa pang bida ni Direk Dante sa Donsol na si Sid Lucero ang sinasabing isa sa mga mahihigpit na makakalaban ni Sam Milby as new movie actor of the year. Magaling si Sam sa You Are The One pero di rin matatawaran ang ipinakitang akting ni Sid for Donsol. Pero siyempre, andiyan pa rin ang iba pang nominees para sa exciting category na ito na mga sikat naman po talagang lahat ngayon, Christian Bautista for Mano Po 5, Gerald Anderson for First Day High, Jason Abalos for First Day High, Joseph Bitangcol for D’Lucky Ones at Luis Manzano for All About Love, na mga may "promise" ding ipinakita sa kanilang first film done within the year 2006.

Dumating si Jake sa Nominees Night ng 4th Golden Screen Awards sa Zirkoh Greenhills last March 6. "May ganu'n bang issue? Naku, wala akong alam du'n. As in, hindi ko alam na may ganu'ng issue sa akin. Eh, sana hindi na ako nagpapakahirap magtrabaho." Tigas din ng tanggi ni Jake sa isyung may itinatago siyang anak. Aniya, wala siyang itinatagong anak sa pagkabinata. "Nakatatawa naman yung issue," sabi ng actor. "Lalong walang katotohanan ang balitang yon. Wala pa akong anak. Sure na sure ako sa bagay na yan. O, baka naman kasi dahil nakikita nilang may bata sa tinitirhan ko. Yung pamangkin ko from the US, nababakasyon dito at yung three year old sister ko na si Bea is also here. Baka sila yung natsitsimis sa akin. Pero hindi ko sila mga anak," sambit ni Jake. Sa ngayon, kuntento na rin daw naman si Jake sa takbo ng career niya sa ABS-CBN. Hindi naman daw siya nawawalan ng proyekto. Nagtataka lang siya dahil maraming girls ang nalilink sa kanya, kasama na si Angelica Panganiban. Pero, ani Jake, wala pa raw siyang girlfriend dahil nakatutok ang atensyon niya sa trabaho. Kasama si Jake sa primetime soap na Sana Maulit Muli ng ABS-CBN.

Samantalang matagal nang pangarap ng Top 6 na mag-show sila sa nasabing venue after nilang manalo sa PDA. "Wala kasi silang offer sa Araneta, puro out of the country, anong magagawa namin?" say ng taga-PDA. Mas maganda naman daw siguro kung lilibutin muna nila ang buong Pilipinas except Metro Manila at mundo para makilala sila ng husto at last leg na lang ang Big Dome. Pero si Panky ay iba naman ang katwiran, "Siyempre po, every singer's dream ay makapag-concert sa Araneta kasi for me po, ito ang gauge para sa isang singer kung sikat na siya kapag nakatuntong siya sa Araneta, pero dapat po, maraming manood, e, kung iilan lang, wag na lang kasi lugi ang producer at mukha ka namang tangang nagpi-perform doon na walang gaanong taong nanonood sayo." Tulad ng experience nila sa Japan dahil ang venue pala ng pinag-show-an nila sa Shinjuku Bunka Center, Shinjuku, Tokyo ay sila na ang last performers dahil gigibain na raw ang nasabing venue dahil luma na ang building. "Suwerte po namin," saad sa amin. Samantala, by April 7 ay tutulak naman ang Top 6 sa US para sa 7 shows doon na handog din ng TFC at April 25 na ang balik nila ng bansa.

  • [m]channel (markzchannel) - Pinoy Entertainment Blog http://markzchannel.blogspot.com/ A new twist has happened in day 13 of Pinoy Big Brother as not only did Big Brother clandestinely welcomed 4 secret housemates but he also revealed secret places inside the Big Brother House. With their eyes covered, the four secret housemates were ushered inside Big Brother's sandy, secret garden by hosts Bianca Gonzales, Mariel Rodriguez and Jason Gainza. One of the 4 housemates who will stay inside the secret garden is Jeremy Hidano. Despite growing up in Japan and being raised by a Japanese step-father, this 20-year-old is proud to say that he is 100 percent Filipino. Another secret housemate who grew up far from the Philippines was Maricris Dizon. Growing up in Italy, Maricris recalled that she did not experience any discrimination and she had a harmonious life living abroad. The third person to enter the secret garden was 'kikay' girl Mikah Dizon. If some people think that she is lucky because of her endowments, this 20-year-old student from Baguio thinks otherwise. Last to enter the secret garden was self-confessed PBB fan Bodie Cruz. Son of veteran actor, Tirso Cruz III, Bodie admitted that he had never been with strangers and joining PBB was the biggest risk he has ever taken. The four secret housemates were left inside the garden without their basic needs. While the 4 secret housemates made their way inside the secret garden, Big Brother called housemates Zeke and Dionne inside the confession room and he gave to them his next instruction, to furtively provide the secret housemates with their necessities. 42 of 45 3/24/2007 2:59 PM
  • [m]channel (markzchannel) - Pinoy Entertainment Blog http://markzchannel.blogspot.com/ Big Brother added that they should not tell anyone about the secret housemates because it would mean an automatic nomination for eviction for them. However, Big Brother assured the two housemates that if they are successful with their task, both of them will have immunity from the first nomination.

Dagdag pa ng aming source, talagang desidido si Kris na makipaghiwalay ang in fact, pabibinyagan daw nito ang baby nang wala si James. Medyo naguguluhan lang kami sa petsa ng paghihiwalay nina Kris at James dahil may nakausap naman kaming isang malapit kay James na nagsabing pagkatapos sunduin ng basketbolista ang asawa sa hospital, hindi na raw nagsama ang dalawa sa iisang bubong at usap-usapang nakitulog na lang ito sa teammate nang gabing iyon. Say pa ng aming source, the couple has yet to talk pa kung paano ang arrangement sa anak na si Baby James and hopefully, maging maayos daw sana ang maging usapan.

"We have to work as a team," paalala ni Mickey sa bagong pasok na housemate pero dedma pa rin si Jasmin hanggang sa namuo ang sauce ng kare-kare at lumabas ang mantika dito. Nang makita nila Robert at Wendy ang nangyari sa kanilang niluluto, to the rescue kaagad ang dalawa kaya’t naagapan nila ang kawawang kare-kare. Nang maging maayos na ang lahat, muli na na mang kinuha ni Jasmin ang sandok sa kamay ni Robert at nag-take charge sa kusina. Pagkatapos magluto ng mga housemates, napansin ni Big Brother na tahimik si Wendy sa isang sulok kaya pinatawag niya ito sa confession room. Tinanong ni Kuya si Wendy kung ano ang problema nito at lumabas na nga ang inis ni Ms. Navotas sa baagong housemate, "Si Jasmin, naloloka ako sa kanya... bago pa siya kaya dapat siya ang mag-adjust...mahadera siya!"

It’s being looked at this week, but it means I’m without a computer for at least a week. Perhaps it’s time to look into an iMac. This evening I got myself a pair of Nike runners. When did running shoes start to look so futuristic. So I figured I’d start using the treadmill and bike in the exercise room downstairs in my apt. So apparently with a purchase of shoes you get a free box of gingersnap cookies. WTF? So I’m finally catching up on some ironing while watching Season One of Laguna Beach.

The folks over at Hill and Knowlton provided me with a Motorola KRZR K1m to try out and review a couple of weeks ago. It’s pretty damn sexy, but I do have a lists of beefs as well, which I will get to in a future review. It didn’t occur to me that the commercial above was for the same phone that I had recieved, until I saw the commercial again this past weekend. I think subconsciously I knew it was a cellular phone ad, but what really caught me originally was the visual effects and the catchy tune, which I discovered is Sugar Sweet by The Icicles. An indie band from Grand Rapids Michigan, who will be releasing a new album this coming spring. Check out the band, more about the phone soon enough. 4 comments. 13 of 23 3/24/2007 3:00 PM

Aside, from being able to surf through an extensive blogroll of Toronto blogs, the GTABlogger community provided two things, which I’m officially bring back a) Regular Social Get Togethers and b) and Active Mailing List.

  • photojunkie http://www.photojunkie.ca/ I went to a Viz Think presentation and all I got were these Post it Notes Posted on March 6th, 2007 by photojunkie. Categories: Blog, Geek. So last Tuesday, I went to a Visual Thinking session, held by Ryan Coleman. I was intrigued by the idea, and it seemed like it was something I could do, as a non-programmer. Especially since I considered myself a visual person. So Visual Thinking, it’s not quite as simple as it sounds, but it’s not difficult either. If you break it down to the basics, you have various Nodes that build into a Model. Now you just need to break down any problem solving needs that you have into these elements. Still confused? In order to understand anything, and I truely mean anything. You need to break things down into smaller pieces. Once you understand the relationship between those smaller pieces, then you rebuild it to your needs. Yes I know, you are still confused. Go read this post by Ryan over at the MaRS Blog about Visual Thinking. So after the session we went for food and drinks, armed with sharpies, index cards and post it notes. The problem I set forth was, how do you build a photography portfolio site that is innovative and different from your average portfolio site. What I left with was 15 post it notes and an idea that brought me outside the traditional box. I’m sure more than half of you are trying to figure out, what the hell is he going on about. Even now, a week later, I’m still trying to digest what I learned. But if you want to walk away with the one moral of the story. If you have a problem you want to solve, break it down visually into pieces and then create a model with it. You can view my Viz Think set over at flickr. 2 comments. 16 of 23 3/24/2007 3:00 PM

On Saturday, I was out shooting with some Canon Users from Torcamp. It’s been awhile since I’ve done any sort of photowalking. After doing so much of it a few years back, it kind of gets old. But it’s actually quite refreshing, when you have a new group of people to shoot with. It’s even cooler when you can swap and trade lens through out the afternoon. We decided to hit The Junction, which is an interesting part of the west end of town. Lot of cool little shops, but also a lot of vacancy’s. Perhaps it’s the next neighbour to be in. Seeing all the empty store fronts was actually quite inspiring. So many possibilities. Flickr URL * http://www.flickr.com/photos/photojunkie/411307524/ 2 comments. 17 of 23 3/24/2007 3:00 PM
  • photojunkie http://www.photojunkie.ca/ Today, is the beginning of the rest of my Life Posted on February 28th, 2007 by photojunkie. Categories: Blog, Photojunkie, Million. When I started my site in the fall of 2000 I never thought it would encompass my life the way it has. I never would have thought it would open so many doors and connect me with some many people both far and wide. Now here I am in my 7th year and I’m still going at it. The URL has changed several times over and the content has evolved from interest to interest, with the readership base changing in and out. But the concept has remained the same. The concept of sharing myself, whether it be through my photos, experiences or just casual hypertexting. At some point today, I’m gonna hit the one million mark, which I’ve probably already hit over a year ago, if I hadn’t switched counters awhile back. What does that mean? It means a lot of hours, a lot of viewers and hopefully a lot more. Possibly an impact? The site has really impacted my life experiences over the years and I hope I have made some sort of impact on you as well, regardless of size. So what lays ahead? I don’t know if I can answer that question, because every year, I look back and realize how many new and different experiences I have. Opportunities that have arisen from the unexpected. Moments that can’t be predicted. Hopefully, you’ll tag along for the ride. What I would like to say is Thank you for being a part of this adventure, Thank you for your support and Thank you for your friendship. PS: I’ll be announcing the rest of the giveaway winners on Friday, so check in to see if you won anything.

I learn a lot more about the posts I write whenever you add your comments, and though I try to reply as much as I can, there are posts that have taken a life of their own and became almost like forums, that really, the readers themselves take care of each other to reply back and forth. And I love it like that! That’s exactly what good discussions are all about. And thanks to Roxy, a regular reader and a Jumong fan, I was alerted of comments that went missing from March 15-22. I was in the Philippines that week and I must admit that I came back to over 2000 akismet spams that I just massed-deleted. So my deep apologies to anyone else whose comments were lost. I recovered some from the Akismet spam folder this week but comments from last week may have been gone forever. Again, I am very sorry for this and will do my best to go through the spam folders more diligently so that none of your valued comments will get lost.

The hotel was impeccable and the service was definitely better than even hotels I stayed at in the US. There was a ready smile for us and always a courteous greeting. More than once when I asked the kitchen to heat our Chinese take-out leftover food (bought outside where it was cheaper), it was heated and presented to me like I requested for a room service - in nicer china and silverware and on a tray with linen napkins. Another time, when my hudband after our rented van because he left a suit in it, the consierge immediately called the guard at the gate and instructed the van to turn back. And when we were told the 24-hour security is on-duty round the clock, they weren’t joking. Our vehicles were checked everytime it entered the compound, no matter what time it was. Trace Suites in Los Banos. It’s a two-year old hotel built in time for the ASEAN Games held in the Philippines. Los Banos hosted the swimming event and the hotel became home to the athletes for the meet. There is an Olympic size pool and training facility that still operates for the Philippine swim team. Also inside the guarded compound is a booming Trace College that offers elementary to undergrad that has airconditioned classrooms and worldclass facilities. So look for yourself - here is where I stayed. In the foreground is the aquatic sports museum, with a huge olympic size pool, and complete with training rooms and gyms. In the background is the famed Mount Maria Makiling. The photo below shows the school to the right of the pool. The hotel is (off-camera) adjacent to the school. 3 of 14 3/24/2007 3:00 PM

By Grace | Related entries in General: Philippine Culture, Places to Visit Have you recently been to Los Banos, Laguna ? Seven years is a long time to be away from the place I love. And of course I expected change. But nothing prepared me for how nice that change was. Los Banos has now become a model place to live. Eveything is so clean and orderly. There are no litter on the streets anywhere. It’s unlawful to throw trash or smoke inside the jeepneys, and by law every public transport has to have a trashcan. They have a waste and recycling management that puts Baltimore to shame. Los Banos residents use their biodegradable trash so well that the plants around town have benefitted from the richer soil. The city is even now declared as a Science and Nature City, a testament to the marked improvement as a well as the abundant nature sites and scientific learning centers. There is even a neat children’s park beside the municipal hall. The highway lanes are now marked with white and yellow strips and there are pedestrian lanes too, and surprise surprise (!) people actually use them. 4 of 14 3/24/2007 3:00 PM
  • Filipina Soul http://www.filipinasoul.com/ Traffic enforcers are serious about making people obey rules, so much so that a bullhorn will unbashedly describe you out if they see you disobeying, “Hey, you! the woman with the blue umbrella that’s crossing the street! Here in Los Banos, people obey traffic laws so how come you’ve the guts to jay-walk! Be ashamed of yourself!” (HOY! ikaw! Yang babaeng naka-blue na payong na tumatawid ng kalsada! Dito po sa Los Banos, sumusunod ng traffic laws ang tao, eh bakit ang lakas mong mag-jay walking! Mahiya ka naman!”) Double shame on you if the mayor himself catches you disobeying the law. And he does, this mayor Perez. Everyone told me that he’s a frequent site at the junction, directing traffic or using the bullhorn. Everyone I talked to says it with pride, how Los Banos has improved with a better public servant in office and innovative ways of running the town. It is a good place to live.

Well, it wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be. Flying with a toddler for 26 hours, I mean. I followed wise advice and brought a a bag full of cookies, crackers, juices and various toys that kept her occupied. What made it all the more pleasant was a small turn of blessing. My husband and I were given seats (window and aisle) that didn’t have an occupant in the middle, so our daughter was able to have that extra space all to herself from Detroit to Nagoya, Japan. YEY! The layover in Japan was something else though. We deplaned for a crew change and plane clean up. But instead of a holding area of passengers continuing to Manila, we were herded through a long line into another set of thorough security checks. Why, I have no idea, since we have been checked at the US airport we came from. 5 of 14 3/24/2007 3:00 PM
  • Filipina Soul http://www.filipinasoul.com/ But, we were finally here at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA), checking through immigrations. The first thing I noticed were people who serviced us “with a smile”. We were greeted with “Good morning, Ma’am/Sir.” There was quite a crowd at the baggage claims, as expected, but because several porters were sorting through the bags and boxes, passengers actually got to their belongings rapidly. (added - and no, we didn’t have to pay anyone to help with luuggage. I actually saw an airport personnel REFUSE money from a passenger who wanted some help with his bags. hurray for improvements!) At the annex were families waitied, there were designated areas alphabetically arranged by first letter of the surnames. So we found the “GHI” and didn’t have to squint at the hundreds of waiting families to find our relatives. The ride home through the coastal road was smooth and quick, as well. That road still in construction when I was here last, and now it’s fully functional and the choice for commuters trying to by pass Manila’s traffic. My, how the Philippines has changed!

  • Filipina Soul http://www.filipinasoul.com/ One Week By Maricar | Related entries in Uncategorized It’s been a week since we arrived. I feel as though it’s been much longer. So many things have happened. I’ve been to a lot of places, seen many people. My brother is married (!). My kids have adjusted to the time zone, if not the weather. Last week, our schedule seemed so empty, but it’s become quite full since then. I’m not sure where the time goes sometimes. There are still people to see, and I do hope I get to see them before we leave! Time is ticking, and sooner than I’d like, we’ll be boarding a plane again. But that’s still some time off. I’m enjoying being here. Add to: March 13th, 2007 | Permalink | 1 Comment » Marikina By Maricar | Related entries in Uncategorized, Personal Experiences Marikina has been gaining reputation as a place that’s on the upward move. I saw this for myself. There are new malls and condominiums. The streets are clean and newly-paved. Evidences of a city that’s gaining economic grounds. I observed a positive attitude among the residents that speaks well of the local government. One of the highlights of our visit was the butterfly house. Various kinds of butterflies, depending on the season, are bred from eggs. Visitors can see larvae, pupae, and of course, adult butterflies flying around.

Love the food there. Siopao is a must. We’ve ordered the spareribs, pancit canton, sweet and sour pork, and chicken and rice. And still high on my list is their scrumptious halo-halo, which I seem to see on billboards everywhere I go. The food is slower to arrive than most fastfood joints, but that’s because it’s cooked to order. But it’s fast enough, and definitely worth it. I’m not much of a foodie when it comes to Filipino food, though I know there are many places with a much better menu. But take me to Chowking and I’ll be happy. Tomorrow, my best friend and I will have our chikahan. I think Chowking would be a great place. Stories traded over bowls of halo-halo are something to look forward to. 7 of 14 3/24/2007 3:00 PM

Text-Link-Ads (TLA) is a link advertising system that pays publishers for placing advertisers' links in their sites. TLA splits the final sale price of any ads sold 50/50 with the site owner.

And along the way, contradicts the very things that enabled the economic statistics in which she takes pride: had people not been smoking as much, or sending it out zillions of text messages, her raising taxes (not a reform, as she claims, but the logical question of her over-spending) would not have been able to compensated for what came before. Her laying it on thick on Tony Lopez also belies her claim to not being obsessed with politics, when as any president does, so does her cabinet: and what are Raul Gonzales (whose job is the Justice Department) and Ricardo Saludo (whose job is to be Secretary to the Cabinet) doing but politicking? continue reading 95 comments 20 March 2007 : Self-sabotage That, and the timing: if, on its face, there is nothing wrong with a warrant, when and how that warrant is served can become an instance of harassment, for example, when it’s served at a time that denies the accused a chance to post bail.Anyway, I refer you to the blog of Gibbs Cadiz and the waiting of the paper’s staff for the warrant to be served.In his column today, Alex Magno asserts that sample ballots can account for as much as 10% of the votes of a candidate, and that this is the advantage offered by the political machinery that manages to distributes such ballots…. You can look at how Social Weather Stations did its post mortem on the survey results (particularly the exit polls) or dig around Philippine Commentary who studied the issue exhaustively.In other words, Magno may be magnifying the power of the machine and downplaying in turn, the ability of surveys to generate a meaningful snapshot of what voters will actually do. Anyway, here’s the latest on the survey on party list preferences.For those interested in Danton Remoto’s senatorial candidacy, the Comelec it seems, is poised to make its final decision known.GO said, TU said, scuttlebutt courtesy of the Manila Times.The blogosphere has its usual round of meaty stuff: baratillo@cubao analyzes news reports on human rights violations. continue reading 26 comments 19 March 2007 : Apples and oranges The Inquirer editorial for today points to an ongoing debate where the police seem to be taking a more sensible line than the military….

  • Pinoy BSN http://pinoybsn.blogspot.com/ Nursing wages rise, shortage continues Luck has no magical formula. It surely comes when readiness meets an opportunity. For the 17,000 Filipino board passers in the June 2006 nursing examination, job opportunities in and outside the United States continue to beckon. However, the question on the nursing board passers’ preparedness, which sprang from the reportedly tainted test results, seems to suggest their luck won’t come any sooner. The issue on the exam leak has snowballed, settling on a move for selective retake of the examination based on the recommendation of the Commission on Graduates of Foreign Nursing Poll Schools. Opportunities Are you happy with your NLE Rating? Yes! Very much! The shortage of nurses that US healthcare industry needs to fill up hits hundreds of thousands. It was alright. Quite disappointing. Unacceptable! John L. Moore, in his March 17 article on The Morning News, www.nwaonline.net, wrote that the Vote shortage continues despite rising wages of nurses. Current results Moore has quoted Steve Percival, director of human resources at Washington Regional Medical You can only vote once. System, saying [that he] and his counterparts at other hospitals have a tough job trying to keep STARTED : January 30, 2007 their hospitals fully staffed with nurses. ENDS : Indefinitely He said the health care industry has bemoaned the nursing shortage for more than a decade, and SEARCH that more will be needed for additional patients as the Baby Boom generations age. The US Bureau of Labor Statistics projected in 2005 more than 3.1 million registered nurse jobs Search would be available by 2014. That would add more than 700,000 new jobs for nurses, Moore said. Web pinoybsn.blogspot.co If other projections from the American Hospital Association hold true, the country could have a shortfall of 600,000 nurses by 2020, said Mike Meeks, senior vice president for Northwest Health System. Paul Cunningham, senior vice president of the Arkansas Hospital Association, said that one of the problems in getting a larger supply of nurses into the US health care system is the lack of qualified nursing faculty for the nursing schools. Cunningham said many faculty members of nursing programs are approaching 50 and beyond and are thinking about retirement in the next five to eight years. Nursing schools at both NorthWest Arkansas Community College and the University of Arkansas have expanded their programs in recent years, but recruiting nursing faculty can be a challenge, officials for both schools said. Quoting other sources, Moore also cited another reason for shortage of nurses being the multiple opportunities for work out side the hospital setting. Managed care organizations, insurance companies, doctor's offices, nursing homes, diagnostic laboratories, pharmaceutical companies and medical software companies also hire nurses. Citing a 2007 Minority Nurse magazine article, Moore said that the average salary of a registered nurse in Oakland, Calif. alone is $80,270 per year, adding that the projected number of new jobs added for registered nurses between 2004 and 2014 is 703,000.

  • Pinoy BSN http://pinoybsn.blogspot.com/ RP is training ground for China's nurses-to-be ARCHIVES What can be so extraordinary about a group of students studying “The Life and Works of Jose 2006-06-25 Rizal?" Well, for one, the classes are taught in Beijing, China. For another, the students are Chinese 2006-07-02 mainlanders who have no stake in Philippine affairs. 2006-07-09 “I don’t think we need to learn too much about these matters," says Zhang Chan, a 19-year-old girl 2006-07-16 from northeastern China. “But students have mainly lost interest because they can’t understand the 2006-07-23 lessons. Our English isn’t very good and the teacher speaks too fast." 2006-07-30 A twin sister younger by 27 minutes, Zhang Juan, realizes the value of learning about another 2006-08-06 country’s history and tradition but says that “talking about only one person’s life can get boring." 2006-08-13 The twins, however, are plodding on because they see education as the path to a secure future. 2006-08-20 The girls, along with about 50 others, are college freshmen at Beijing’s Yanjing Overseas 2006-08-27 University. 2006-09-03 They have come to the Chinese capital from various corners of the country – from the frigid north 2006-09-10 to the humid south, from the desert region to the coastal areas – in order to study nursing. 2006-09-17 2006-09-24 Training in RP 2006-10-01 After a year of Philippine curriculum-based classes in Beijing, they head off to Tuguegarao, 2006-10-08 Cagayan, for studies at St. Paul University, Yanjing’s partner school in the Philippines. There, they will attend college for three more years until they finally obtain their nursing degrees. Then comes 2006-10-15 the real action: finding high paying jobs in the United States, Canada, England, Australia or maybe, 2006-10-22 even back home. 2006-10-29 The real picture is not as simple as that of a bunch of young men and women tantalized by the 2006-11-05 dollar and the euro. 2006-11-12 2006-11-19 In informal class surveys, the most frequently cited reason for wanting to become a nurse was the desire to care for people in need of medical care. 2006-11-26 2006-12-03 An exceptionally expressive 18-year-old girl wrote: “When I was young, I already had a dream to 2006-12-10 be a nurse. At that time, I only felt that white clothes are very beautiful. But now I know the society need(s) nurses to serve people and help patient to reduce their pains." 2006-12-17 2006-12-24 Some of the students cite particular goal: to return to their hometowns to serve. 2006-12-31 The more pragmatic reasons, of course, came up. These included finding a secure job, earning a 2007-01-07 high salary and having prestige in society. “I want to have a bright future and make much money," 2007-01-14 said another 18-year-old from southeastern China. 2007-01-21 Yet a third student seemed to have stumbled on the perfect formula: “You can help others and earn 2007-01-28 a lot of money." 2007-02-04 Some responses painted a dreamy portrait of the profession, and reminded you that these people 2007-02-11 were barely out of adolescence. A nurse “is an angel of white clothes," scribbled one girl. An 2007-02-18 18-year-old boy bursting with idealism wrote: “I want to do something for our world." 2007-02-25 Others gave straightforward answers, noting that the job would merely be a means to an end. 2007-03-04 2007-03-11 One young lady candidly said that she wanted to “make money and try to do other job." Another student seemingly gripped by wanderlust said: “I want to be a nurse in England, then trip around 2007-03-18 4 of 22 3/24/2007 6:04 PM the world." One girl had quite specific plans to go to the US and get a green card so she could “live

  • Pinoy BSN http://pinoybsn.blogspot.com/ A CALL FOR HELP, JUSTICE, UNDERSTANDING AND LOVE OPEN LETTER ADDRESSED TO THE PEOPLE OF UNITED STATES OF AMERICA AND ITS GOVERNMENT, AMERICAN NURSES ASSOCIATION, DEPARTMENT OF LABOR AND EMPLOYMENT, PROFESSIONAL REGULATION COMMISSION, THE PHILIPPINE GOVERNMENT, PEOPLE OF THE PHILIPPINES, NURSING LEADERS AND JUNE PASSERS. A CALL FOR HELP, JUSTICE, UNDERSTANDING AND LOVE Have you tried give a child a candy or lollipop? I guess you did, but did you tried to take the candy you had given to him. Will he/she be happy? Definitely that child will cry. That is what happened to us, June 2006, Philippine Nursing Licensure Examination Passer. We were given the title NURSE because we passed the exam and met the required standards. We fought for our rights and we won over the highest court in the Philippines, the Supreme Court. We struggled; we face the embarrassment even though we haven't done anything wrong. We won over the court because we are proven ELIGIBLE and CAPABLE to work our Profession. We are like hectares of ripe tomatoes and one of them is rotten, will you throw hectares of tomatoes because one was rotten? So please don't talk as if everyone did the crime. If only few people did this unlawful act then punish them but not everyone. I personally will volunteer to retake if those people who made this crime are punished. DOLE, PRC and the Government of the Philippines did not sue or put to case those people who neglected their work such as those two Board of Nursing members during the June examinations. We want them to pay for the wrongs that they did, they should be the one to be punished not INNOCENT passers. The government should take action because this leakage issue is solely because of neglect of duty as a servant of our nation. Corruption is one of the reasons why this thing happened. This won’t be an issue as a matter of fact because the issue has been cleared and we won the decision of the court. The decision of the court indicates that we have the knowledge, skill, experience and eligibility. The following phrases were quoted in one of the email replies of ANA, these will be answered one by one. First: "ANA considers this to be a matter of public health and safety. Absolute integrity of the professional licensure and exam process must be strictly maintained for purposes of public safety and confidence." We are happy that ANA stands by a philosophy of maintaining good integrity on professional licensure and exam, because this is necessary to protect the public health of a country. What ANA did not understand or take into consideration that the issue on public health was addressed during court proceeding and that the courts decision is that the June board passers are eligible, capable, has enough knowledge and skills to work as a nurse. Second: "ANA recognizes that these nurses are duly licensed and able to practice within the Philippines. Our interests lie with those who wish to come to the United States to practice nursing." Therefore if ANA recognize that we are duly licensed and able to practice within the Philippines then it’s clearly saying that we have the knowledge and what's necessary to become a Registered Nurse. Therefore no public safety was questioned because you didn't question our eligibility as nurses. You are saying that your only concern is the public safety of your people, and Philippine government does not care about public safety of its people at all? Before a nurse Filipino nurse can work as a registered nurse in your country they are obliged to take US exams which are CGFNS and NCLEX. The PNLEX (Philippine Nursing Licensure Examination) solely made to test the capacity of our local nurses to work locally. Your exam is different with our exam here. And you have two exams to test the capability of Filipino nurses. Then there's nothing to worry unless if you doubt your own exams. Third: "ANA understands that investigations into this matter have found that Tests #3 and #5 were substantially compromised. However, there was nothing that was made 6 of 22 3/24/2007 6:04 PM

  • Pinoy BSN http://pinoybsn.blogspot.com/ Reply to QueenB's email from ANA Guys eto yung sagot ng ANA sa email ko, sa tanong na retake all ba o partial lang ang gusto nila?? QueenB ito --------------------- Thank you for contacting the American Nurses Association (ANA) about its recent announcement on the compromised June 2006 Philippine Nurse Exam. As noted in our letter to the Philippine Regulation Commission, ANA considers this to be a matter of public health and safety. Absolute integrity of the professional licensure and exam process must be strictly maintained for purposes of public safety and confidence. ANA also noted in the letter that it is clear that the United States has benefited from the many excellent Philippine nurses who have come here to practice. ANA recognizes that these nurses are duly licensed and able to practice within the Philippines. Our interests lie with those who wish to come to the United States to practice nursing. ANA understands that investigations into this matter have found that Tests #3 and #5 were substantially compromised. However, there was nothing that was made public that indicates that these were the only two tests of the exam that were compromised – only that these were the most compromised. It is for this reason that the ANA Board of Directors recommended that the entire exam be retaken. ANA is aware that the Commission on Graduates of Foreign Nursing Schools (CGFNS) has agreed that retaking Tests #3 and #5 is sufficient to meet their requirements for a VisaScreen Certificate. Each organization’s position stems from a different perspective. CGFNS is a regulatory authority. ANA’s position stems from our role as the professional association and the custodian of the U.S. Code of Ethics for Nurses with Interpretive Statements. Provision 3.4 states that: Nursing is responsible and accountable for assuring that only those individuals who have demonstrated the knowledge, skill, practice experiences, commitment, and integrity essential to professional practice are allowed to enter into and continue to practice within the profession. Given The Code, ANA’s perspective is that when entrusted with caring for the public, there can be no doubt as to the qualifications of the nurse. ANA recognizes the CGFNS’ position that successful retake of Tests #3 and #5 is an acceptable remedy to meet the needs of a VisaScreen Certificate. Again, thank you for contacting the ANA. Please do not hesitate to contact Cheryl Peterson, cheryl.peterson@ana.org, should you have any further questions.

Nos. 222-0850 to 53 Fax: 221-1074 E-mail: adm@davaodoctors.edu.ph Web: www.davaodoctors.edu.ph March 21, 2007 SEC. ARTURO BRION Department of Labor and Employment Muralla St. cor. Gen. Luna St., Intramuros 1002 Manila Philippines Dear Secretary Brion: Greetings. Foremost, let me thank you, on behalf of the other June 2006 PNLE passers whom I represent, for the untiring efforts you have done in assuring us a hold on our local licenses. Your efforts, as well as with the other government representatives, prove that we are not alone in this battle. The recent release of Executive Order No. 609 signed on March 12, 2007 is proof that ours is no longer individual problems but already a national issue. However, some points in the conduct of the retake need clarifications. While it is true that we have the option to either retake TESTS III and V or the whole exam, we believe that there are flaws in the mechanics of the retake, to wit; 1. On December 2006, 1,687 examinees were ordered by the Court of Appeals to retake TESTS III and V. To begin with, these 1,687 examinees are those who truly FAILED the board exam, but were given the chance to retake since they were erroneously declared as passers; 2. Passing the Nursing Licensure Exam requires that an examinee obtain an AVERAGE rating of 75%. Article IV, Section 15 of RA 9173 also known as Philippine Nursing Act of 2002 reads: In order to pass the examination, an examinee must obtain a general average of at least seventy-five percent (75%) with a rating of not below sixty percent (60%) in any subject. An examinee who obtains an average ratings of seventy-five (75%) or higher but gets a rating below sixty percent (60%) in any subject must take the examination again but only in the subjects where he/she is rated below sixty percent (60%). In order to pass the succeeding examination, an examinee must obtain a rating of at least seventy-five percent (75%) in the subject or subjects repeated. 3. That we, the June 2006 passers, satisfactorily met the passing requirements stipulated in Article IV Section 15 of the Philippine Nursing Act. 4. The CGFNS, in its recommendations to the Philippine Regulatory Bodies, wants the June 2006 passers to retake TESTS III and V, and obtain a passing rating in both. 5. That by requiring us to obtain a 75% in the two tests and not averaging it with our earlier test ratings, the government drafted an executive order that proves harmful than beneficial to us. 10 of 22 3/24/2007 6:04 PM

  • Pinoy BSN http://pinoybsn.blogspot.com/ ANA's Statement on the June 2006 PNLE AMERICAN NURSES ASSOCIATION URGES NEW TESTS FOR PHILIPPINE NURSES SEEKING TO PRACTICE IN THE U.S. EARLIER EXAMS COMPROMISED, QUESTIONS LEARNED PRIOR TO TESTING SILVER SPRING, MD – The American Nurses Association (ANA) is urging the Philippine government to facilitate a retake of the nurse licensure exam without penalty for the nurses who passed the June 2006 examination. Following investigations by both the Commission on Graduates of Foreign Nursing Schools (CGFNS) and the Philippine government, it was discovered at least 110 questions (22 percent) of the 500 question exam were known by large numbers of examinees and test-preparation operators at least two days prior to commencement of the examination. “It is clear that the exam was significantly compromised. In the interest of public health and safety, ANA believes that every effort must be made to protect the integrity of the professional exam and licensure process in order to uphold the public trust and confidence,” commented President Rebecca M. Patton, MSN, RN, CNOR. ANA has resolved that all passing applicants of the June 2006 Philippine nurse licensure exam wishing to be considered for entrance into the United States to practice nursing should be required to retake a new and different nurse licensure test and obtain a passing score. ANA recognizes the June 2006 applicants who passed the examination are lawfully licensed to practice nursing in the Philippines. However, U.S. law requires that all non-U.S. licensed registered nurses applicants be reviewed to determine if the foreign educated nurse’s education, training license and experience is comparable to that of a registered nurse in the United States. Given the extent to which the June 2006 exam was compromised, there are significant questions as to whether the exam can be considered a reliable test of nursing knowledge. Foreign educated nurses are required to be prescreened and certified as part of the temporary or permanent occupational visa application process, as detailed in the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996. ANA was one of the strongest proponents of the pre-screening provisions of that legislation as part of the association’s commitment to maintaining the highest professional standards, and ensuring a prescreening process that works to protect the public safety. ### The ANA is the only full-service professional organization representing the interests of the nation's 2.9 million registered nurses through its 54 constituent member nurses associations. The ANA advances the nursing profession by fostering high standards of nursing practice, promoting the rights of nurses in the workplace, projecting a positive and realistic view of nursing, and by lobbying the Congress and regulatory agencies on health care issues affecting nurses and the public.

The demo has been out since February, but given the mammoth Gig size, I'd rather go wait for the actual release. Its last game of the same series was 2001, CnC Yuri's Revenge, and the creative team behind this literally shaked and baked! In 1998, Westwood was acquired by Electronic Arts (EA). In response to what was perceived as an unwillingness to maintain the Westwood brand and independence from EA, many long-time employees quit over the next few years.

Brandon is out of AI6!!! I still think Sanjaya would bow out early, but I guess his beautiful hair is his lucky charm. My choices for the top three are Melinda, Lakisha and Stephanie.

  • Finance Manila http://www.financemanila.net/ No Comments » Wanted: A good read March 12th, 2007 I think I am running out of mystery novels to read. All the new releases seem to be formatted to fit the s formula. Or most authors have their usual style/tricks that it gets boring halfway through the novel. I've rea most of the books authored by James Patterson, Patricia Cornwell, Sandra Brown, Brad Meltzer, David Baldacci, John Grisham, Michael Connelly, and of course Dan Brown. My all-time favorite remains to be Follett. I don't like Robert Ludlum coz he gets too technical, I prefer to watch the movies made from his instead. So, what's left out there? Any good reads left?

  • Finance Manila http://www.financemanila.net/ It's our 9th Anniversary! When I created this site back in 1998, it wasn't even a forum nor was it a formaliz blog. But it was indeed, a blog –in the sense that the word blog was taken from weB-LOG, wherein one input his ideas in the web thru typed text and presented images. But the term Blog was not coined yet back then. Nine years ago, I was just hitching a ride with free webhosts, and my site was really amateur. It just began as an offshoot to my curiousity about computers that I started making a webpage for my nephew(s) about Voltes V, which was making a comeback then. (And besides, I had the time since I was newly single!) This mushroomed into webpages about Mazinger Z, MP3s, 80s Songs, and even "chicken soup for the soul" type pages (this and my 80s songs and lyrics, and MP3 pages were taken down due to rising popularity which resulted in some publisher(s) complaining).

At the SM Mall of Asia lobby, Edward Teng Couturier showed off a sample of their bridal gowns. They also offer other servics other than bridal and debutant gown They can also make cocktail and evening dress, baromg suit, tuxedo, uniform, costumes. The bridal gowns can be quite expensive. I think the cheapest is 40,000 pesos (roughly $800). But most brides are willing to spend for this once in a lifetime event.

The owner/hair stylist is a Korean of course. She has 16 years experience in Korean hair styling. M was given a catalog of various hair styles to choose from. Noting her frame and hair texture, M chose a style that would definitely suit her. While waiting, the staff served us coffee. What great customer service. M is quite pleased with the result.

  • Shopping Finds http://nimrodel.net/ Garage Sale is always fun. You never know when you can find some useful item. There’s a place along the side streets of Evangelista St. in Makati City that have rows of houses selling garage sale items. My family and I scooted over there to check out old furniture we could use for our new home. Checking out the simple consoles the price ranged from 4000 pesos to 6000 pesos. A chest costs around 3,500 pesos. They are definitely cheaper than the regular furniture shops. Continue reading… Posted on March 4th, 2007 with no comments.

Over at Federal Hardware in Pasong Tamo extension, Makati, Federal Hardware offers a wide range of furniture, hardware and other home improvement needs. The place is not for us.

  • Shopping Finds http://nimrodel.net/ Pig All the malls are now showcasing Year of the Pig Charms. Tomorrow is Lunar Chinese New Year. February 18th 2007 thru February 6th 2008 is the Year of the FIRE PIG. I like this particular Jade Pig Charm as it’s a laughing pig on display at the Walter Mart Makati. The price tag for this lovely jade pig is $100.00 This other Jade pig charm costs slightly less at $50.00 . Real Jade is expensive of course. What is so great about the “pig” Grandmaster Professor Lin-Yun Rinpoche teaches us that of all the animals of the Chinese zodiac, the pig is the most blessed. The horse draws a cart, the ox plows the fields, the goat provides milk, the rooster lets you know when morning has come, and the dog stands guard at night, but the pig is obligated to do nothing at all except sleep, eat and sleep some more. The pig is happy go lucky, easy going, and eager to avoid conflict. Since the pig’s natural element is water, the year of the fire pig is when fire meets water. The elements of fire and water are at odds with each other and do not coexist in a peaceful manner. For those born in the year of the Pig, it is Tia Sway year. They will be in the hot seat. People born in the year of the Monkey are at odds with the year, and those born in the year of the Snake are in direct opposition to the year and should take special care.

This is seen in the results of basic Math exams, Trigonometry and Algebra, which I give at the start of every semester. Most of the students do not know how to operate with grouping symbols and they fail in the basic polynomial factoring. It isn't a surprise for me to read this report that more than half of the 1.3 million students in public and private high schools in the Philippines are unfit for college.

If every batch of W@Wies have a 'flavor of the moment' in their quest for fresh talents in videography, this is probably the it-guy at this time. Jezreel Cruz doesn't hide the fact that he's new in the business and his clients (so far) are all W@Wies. Actually, we were seriously concerned that this video would not make it in time for today's presentation. That could've cut short the AVP Week by one day. But it's here now, and personally, what we saw exeeded our expectation from someone new in the business. He called this clip 'New Beginnings,' we call it his baptism of fire.

When we asked Jason Magbanua for referrals of promising names we could possibly feature for this AVP Week, he suggested two non-Manila based videographers. The first one never replied to our offer; but Iloilo-based Fiel Pranga of Mayad Studios agreed and rose up to the challenge. As proven by one of last year's entry, suppliers based in the provinces could be at par (or somethimes, even better!) with their Manila counterparts.

She answered, “Sir, andrew at alehba dot com?

Filed under: Blogging The Davao Blog Party #1 Posted February 21st, 2007 Visited 326 times | 4 Comments | View blog reactions Blogie, Marc, Kim, Ria, Jun and I met a few hours ago at Blugre MTS to discuss our upcoming Davao Blog Party to be held on Saturday, March 17, 2007. The newly-opened NetFront Coffee Shop and Internet Cafe will serve as the venue. There were a few jokes thrown here and there but I’m glad to report that this time we got somewhere. Kim was nice enough to agree to plug the event on her radio show (she DJ’s part-time). Apart from that she’s also responsible for “physical arrangements”. Sounds like a weird sexual medical saga, but no that just means that she decides where all the attendees will be seated. We joked that Ria would be cooking the food at NetFront’s kitchen. But no she’ll only coordinate with whoever will cater the event. There were more senseless stuff about chicken sandwiches, cheese pimiento spreads and oven toasters to be raffled off which I’d rather not dwell on.

Posted February 15th, 2007 Visited 375 times | 6 Comments | View blog reactions I saw an ad in the Philippine Daily Inquirer yesterday that more or less pissed the hell out of me. It was for “the country’s first mobile instant messenger”, Yehba. Yeah, you read that right, YEHBA. I dunno if they unknowingly picked that name, I don’t care, it’s too close to mine in pronunciation. Alleba has been around since 2001, so they can’t claim that they thought of it first. It’s no secret that Alleba is pronounced a-yeh-bah (yes, double L’s (LL) take on the letter Y). I might not be that famous but even so these guys couldn’t be more blatant. I worked hard on my brand and I continue to do so. I’ll have to talk to some people to see what actions I must take to protect it.

It was nice to know that there’s more of us here in the city. Well, maybe just 6 more. It was my first time to meet Bloggie Robillo, Marc Javellana, Jim, Dominique, Floraine and Chris. Newly-mowed Jun and sizzling Ria Jose were there too. The discussions often digressed from planning a blog party to some geeky open source evangelisms. I, for one, like Windows XP. Lol. It was kinda hard to butt in guys. But don’t get me wrong, Microsoft reeks. After the whole thing everything about the blog party was still up in the air except for one thing — the date: March 17, 2007. I heard from the grapevine that Dennis and Jun will contribute a chunk of their Ituloy Angsulong winnings to the party. Yeah, more food! More drinks! Speaking of guests, Blogie said that Janette Toral will be there. Right now we’re also trying to get Aileen Apolo to attend.

  • Pangasinan’s News Leader | Sunday Punch http://sundaypunch.prepys.com/ Please try to look for my March 6 post. That was the post where I wrote about the governor’s absenteeism. And what’s wrong anyway if I want to see my governor for personal purposes? Isn’t that my right? Isn’t that part of the service he should render to his constituents? I am not asking for an arm and a leg, just a simple chat with the governor. And why do you say it’s personal when in fact I went there as a representative of our local youth group? You did not even bother to ask me why I went there and yet you start barking out comments like that. You even insinuate that I want immediate attention. I went there the first time, he was not there and I was told to come back at another date. I came back, still no show and gave me another date yet again. I came back again, he just left the office. I finally gave up. I don’t think that even comes close to me wanting immediate attention. I never said that Filipinos in America don’t pay taxes. Where did you even get such an idea, Eduardo? It might be you who has downed the Johnny Blue. And I never flaunted my tax payment. It was you who even declared $600 a year as your payment. I never quoted any figure on my part. I just said I am a taxpayer and I deserve to see the governor. It doesn’t matter how much taxes I pay. I pay them, period. That makes me a taxpayer, doesn’t it? Yes, I said media only talks about bad things most of the time, and thus it is not an adequate source by itself. And yes, I wrote that if something fishy happens etc., expose it to media. Isn’t something fishy equivalent to something bad? So where’s the contradiction there, amigo? My point still holds true, that media will most of the time only talk about bad things. However, Eduardo, I very much agree with your last statement that news reporting is a two sided coin. If only everyone would take a look at both sides, then we will all be better off. But this is usually not the case. Some people believe almost anything they read. Isn’t chismis one of the favorite past times of pinoys? In the Philippines, you are guilty until proven innocent. That is the sad truth. Mr. Pontaoe, I forgive you for not being able to read my March 6 post, as I do not expect anyone to read all posts in the Forum. However it would be best to really read thoroughly and think about what you will be posting in the forum first, before actually making strong comments like you usually do. This is a good example of responsible journalism and will make discussions in this forum more informative and fair. I was only able to make a comment on the governor’s absenteeism since I experienced it first hand. Others might have a different experience, but this is my experience and that is what I based my comments on. As you have written previously, entente cordiale. No offense meant and none taken.

They act like GMA who stated recently that her governance is better than the previous administrations - denial of responsibility for any obvious worsening problem that exists in our country. GMA even advised the Filipino people to avoid buying “LUXURY ITEMS” in response to the worsening poverty problem. At sabi nya, pati siya, nagpapalipas din ng gutom ng isang lingo. Anyone with a common sense knows that if the Filipino people continue to multiply like amoeba, no amount of economic development and reforms can improve the quality of life for the majority of the Filipinos. Add the massive graft and corruption, crimes, illegal drugs and gambling, etc and all the symptoms for the worst and complicated “ILLNESS” is ready to happen. In extreme circumstances which the Philippines is now leading to is like a serious illness, surgical operation or amputation is necessary. Maybe some recent events are a signal of their way of curing the illness. Hindi na puede ang Salompas o Band Aid dahil malala na.

Lomibao has seen the light and isn’t good. He thought it was a candle light on the table for a sumptuous meal but realized soon enough the freight train coming at him at full speed. Lomibao quitting on his own volition? For unity? Unity my foot. Let us poke our noses what’s Lomibao was up to in the first place. What got me thinking is why resign a departmental position run for congress and quit so sudden to campaign for some derelicts? So, it was a “lorey..conconaori” after all. Arroyo (JdV?) made him an offer he couldn’t refuse. A deal of a deal. Possibly, return what it already cost him, quintuple the amount, a cabinet position or ambassadorship for icing, and make way for Joe de V to cut through like knife on butter. Brutal but brilliant. Now, let’s wait for The Benjie to make his clownish move against Machiavelli himself. Filed under Punch Forum by Sunday Punch.

  • Pangasinan’s News Leader | Sunday Punch http://sundaypunch.prepys.com/ That’s what makes The Punch fascinating. The subtlety of delivery is a force to be reckoned with. Sometimes people reacted passionately to what The Punch prints but as everybody knew it’s the last breath of life for anybody on the dark side. Case in point. Remember the Tondaligan Park scandal? When The Gonz exposed it, VM Alvin Fernandez went all the way to high heavens to deny the undeniable but what followed was a coup of journalistic reporting. The slew of mind boggling scandals; the garbage boondoggle at Awai… Malimgas market… the MacAdore hotel… Magsaysay Park… dredging machine… the towing for profit… absenteeism in the Clowncil… the Decorp debacle are known because of pitbull-like tenacity of The Punch under Ermin Garcia. True to form… the first and last defense of what is right. The public is fortunate to have them around. Hey…Ermin! Float like a butterfly sting like a bee.

Let us tap the overseas Pangasinenses scattered all over the world to contribute 1 percent of their income on a monthly basis to a Pangasinan Think-Tank/Do-Tank Group based in USA. There is so much of financial resources as well as intellectual resources of overseas Pangasinenses all over the world that could be pooled together to support a very aggressive Pangasinan Think-Tank /Do-Tank group that will aggressively legally approach corruption, fraud , dishonesty, etc of those who govern as well as the governed. The basic problem is that the people who govern as well as the governed don’t follow the law. We need massive money to finance such group. We need 100 million dollars to finance such Proactive Group, and a personality and quality of that of Ermin Garcia Sr. who will run such Pangasinan Think-Tank?/Do-Tank Group. Filipinos overseas remit to the Philippines 8 billion dollars a year. How much do Pangasinenses remit to Pangasinan a year? 100 million dollars is achievable I think to start the ball rolling.

Carrera 23 Mar 2007 Lambino was asked by PGMA to help campaign for the senatorial candidates under administration’s senatorial candidates. According to Sun Star Pangasinan News, Lambino was convinced by PGMA to give way this coming election for the sake of unity. He said that it was a painful decision. Now fellow posters, “ABANGAN ANG SUSUNOD NA KABANATA” the deadline for the filing of candidacy isn’t over yet. Some politicians can always change their decision and usually at the last minute. So fellow posters, enough about this Lambino guy. Move on to another issue……….. On another note: I am calling the attention of the Great Mayor of Dagupan City. Since it’s your last term of office, please make sure that the Pistay Dayat Committee under your administration submits a financial statement this time.

  • Pangasinan’s News Leader | Sunday Punch http://sundaypunch.prepys.com/ respect and even accusing him as an absentee landlord, showed the frivolousness of your inference and your huge mistake not keeping your eyes on the ball. Absentee landlord? Are you sure? Or you misinterpreted a lessee from a landlord. And going to Urduja, what do you want from the governor? This is your uproar…the 22nd… in not finding him available when you wanted an immediate attention. Not because of his gubernatorial performance but your obsession for something personal. Looking and begging for a morsel of bureaucracy, Mr. Bulatao? Well, living in America has its advantages…the whole kit and caboodle. But, your exultations as a taxpayer you blundered in your misguided assumption that Filipinos here don’t pay taxes in the Philippines. However, it wouldn’t give you the monopoly of attention. How’s $600 dollars a year sounds to you? That’s how much I pay the government in real estate taxes but I don’t flaunt it…like you do… because it’s my duty and obligation though I never live there. Will it give me the right to fire at every candidate that crossed my line of sight like Lambino? I truly believe I do. Let’s proceed to the crème de la crème. Your post on the 22nd is the most outrageous comment you’d done in your denial that the media is not a reliable source of information. This is where the contradictions came in…the skeleton-in-the-closet kind of your character. You said on the 22nd and I quote verbatim, “Media is not a good enough source to base your comments on. You should be where the action is. The problem with the media is that most of the time only the bad things are talked about”. You said on the 18th, “If something fishy is done to these projects by the next governor expose it to the media. Write to the Sunday Punch. It’s that simple”. Aha…Señor Bulatao! Where have you been, amigo? If you’re drinkin’ try Johnny Blue. As everybody can peruse of what everybody put forward in the Forum, all the info are taken from newspapers like The Sunday Punch and the Sun Star if we are dealing with local issues. Besides, anyone pretty well knows what’s written in the media for the consumer, you need analysis sometimes to see the real meaning. News reporting is like a two sided coin. To see the whole, you have to know what’s the other side looks like. As simple as that. Filed under Punch Forum by Sunday Punch.

Interviews with twenty individuals, such as Cory Aquino, Imelda Marcos, and other major players and representatives from all walks of life, indicate how much—or how little—has changed twenty years after that historic event. One year later, the economy seems to be better, but politicians are as disappointing as ever. And the Aquinos just seem to be sinking to new depths all the time. The "Kris and Borgy" billboards weren't exactly Kris Aquino's fault, but was there any excuse for the "Cory and Loi" show? Read "The Aquinos Today: What would Ninoy say?" (Philippine News, 28 February 2007), and see for yourself how Ninoy's family seems to have all the bases covered when it comes to political scandals—from showbiz intrigue to sibling rivalry to turncoatism. On a personal note, last year, all I could do was link to the podcast and share the "outtakes" from the article that I contributed to the special issue (see "Fr. Archie Intengan on the Church Today"). Well, you may now read "Romeo J. Intengan" by Vernon R. Totanes =) Please note that it has a page 2.

The quote above is from a column on senatorial bets who are not expected to win. I don't know whether de Quiros himself provided the translation, but equating a word that needs to be bleeped out with "Christ" seems to be just plain wrong. And I'm not even thinking about this in religious terms. What's ironic is that the column ends with a reference to Christ's apostles.

Worse, there is a stereotype image of an uptight, four-eyed woman like the comic book’s "Miss Tapia" who spends her time scolding, or silencing students and library users. I have known many eminent librarians, including our National Librarian Prudenciana Cruz who is several kilos heavier than Miss Tapia, or the University of the Philippines’ librarian Salvacion Arlante who has the same eyeglasses and demeanor but not the hair-do. Then there are the librarians at the Lopez Museum and the Ateneo Rizal Library, both young ones and “young once,” who do not fit the stereotype. What can I say? After writing about the need to hire librarians for libraries, I discovered that the highest-ranking friend of Filipino librarians just devoted a column to our profession. There are some gentle jabs and overly-optimistic generalizations, but overall, this column should be much more effective in promoting our profession than the one by the useless what's-his-name =) Labels: Clippings, Librarians Posted by vonjobi on 3/09/2007 12:08:00 AM Permanent link | 2 comments | Trackback link 6 of 12 3/24/2007 3:25 PM
  • Filipino Librarian http://filipinolibrarian.blogspot.com/ Technorati: 1 link to this item • Add to del.icio.us Librarian-less Libraries are Just Buildings From a press release: Senator Ralph Recto wants 60 libraries to be established next year to be named after noted Filipino writers, saying these facilities would not only honor deceased writers but also encourage the youth and adults alike to develop a passion for reading. Recto’s proposal comes in the wake of the finding that three in every four recent elementary school graduates cannot read without assistance. I applaud the intention of building libraries and the desire to honor writers and promote reading, but I do not see how erecting libraries, by themselves, will encourage Filipinos to "develop a passion for reading." It would probably be more effective for Recto to ask his wife Vilma Santos to join the Get Caught Reading campaign. The less popular—but more effective, in my biased opinion—initiative that Recto can push is to highlight the importance of hiring competent librarians for all existing public school libraries and those he wants to set up; librarians who will not just keep the books in order, but reach out to their communities to promote reading and literacy. Just as the Senate is not merely a repository of laws, libraries are not just buildings full of books. And just as not all senators are worthy of the name, not everyone who works in a library is, in fact, a librarian. Libraries with "librarians" who just happen to be relatives or friends of the appointing authorities, but with no knowledge of what professional librarians actually do, will very likely discourage—not encourage—reading. Libraries without librarians who care about their communities and books will just be a waste of time, space, effort and money. So go ahead, build the libraries, name them after writers, but don't forget to hire the librarians who will manage the libraries, attract readers and make sure that those readers know who the writers are. Oh, and remember to mention the need for librarians in your press releases. Labels: Clippings, Libraries—Public Schools, Reading Posted by vonjobi on 3/08/2007 07:50:00 PM 7 of 12 3/24/2007 3:25 PM

Yuga suspended PTB indefinitely at the start of the month due to financial considerations, but brought it back a few days later when a donor provided a "much faster and bigger dedicated server to host the site." I suppose I could go into the declines in total unique hits (UH) and this month's hits (TMH), but it wouldn't really be worth the effort because PTB was down so much in February. What IS interesting was Rickey's decision to remove his blog from PTB, which opened up the top spot for other bloggers. Surprisingly, the blog next in line for oh-so-many-months was NOT the one that moved up. In fact, Starmometer jumped from 6th to No. 1, and Blogged went from 16th to No. 2. What happened? The clue I believe lies in the latter blog's new name—American Idol @ Blogged. I suspect that posts about American Idol, specifically Antonella Barba, have been driving traffic to both. This, of course, seems only appropriate considering that their predecessor made it to the top because of his devotion to the reality show that shows no sign of slowing down. Other notable increases compared with January 2007 rankings were those by High Denzity (from 31 to 12) and Filipina Soul (from 37 to 23), and newcomers i heart np and Pinoy Money Talk.

  • Filipino Librarian http://filipinolibrarian.blogspot.com/ Chapters Indigo is a Canadian bookstore, but believe it or not, I found out about the advertisement above through Filipino bloggers Gelo and Tobie. I hope they can Get Caught Reading, too =) From the Love of Reading page: The average annual school budget is less than $30,000. Teachers spend over $1,000 of their own money annually on student resources. 46 percent of Ontario's grade 3 children fail the standard reading examination. Thousands of university and college students need remedial courses to develop reading skills they should have acquired in the first three years of grade school. I don't think Philippine figures would be better, but I suspect they might be worse.
