Look Back, Look Now and Compare

PacMan has once again dominated the boxing ring with his fight against Brandon Rios yesterday at Macau, China. People everywhere especially those who were affected by the Typhoon Yolanda were celebrating knowing that PacMan dedicated this fight to them.

Indeed PacMan proved his strength once again after losing his two previous fights. I was annoyed by an old woman yesterday who gave a sarcastic comment against PacMan giving emphasis on PacMan's new belief. She said that if PacMan will lose the fight its because of his new religion. So pathetic old woman. I just ignore her because I don't want to have a word war with her.

For those who are persecuting PacMan for his new religion, this one thing I can say: Look back, look now and compare. Try to look back how PacMan was doing before he declared having  personal relationship with God. He used to be a womanizer, a gambler and well maybe he was among those who prayed on idols. People of those kind should stop feasting on PacMan's new found faith. Instead, they should be happy for what he become right now.

To you PacMan, continue to live with the kind of faith that you have right now. God will bless you more.

The Globalization That Resulted to Climate Change

After the disastrous scenario brought by Super Typhoon Yolanda (a.k.a Haiyan), a drastic measures pertaining to environmental concern should be implemented. As we all know, Philippines is often visited with more than 20 typhoons every year and many believed that this is caused by climate change. 

The Globalization and the Climate Change

The drastic change that was brought by the industrialization of our economy causes greater impacts in the changes of our society and ecology. Along with the industrialization is the destruction of our natural environment. Its detrimental effect can be felt right now and some measures were done to save the once abundant nature that God purposely delegated to mankind.

Nature’s destruction was caused by human’s greediness for greater wealth. Such destruction makes the poor becomes poorer, and only few gets richer. The use of technologies such as large scale mining and large scale logging hasten up the destruction of our natural habitat. There are still many other transformations that were being introduced in our country which appear to be beneficial at first but only to realize in the end that its destruction is beyond repair. We are blinded with the ‘globalization’ that said to be the only answer for our economic crises. Little did we know that we are just being manipulated with the wrong perceptions and information. Globalization becomes a government policy (under the rules of GATT and WTO) and we are nailed to it. 

We are compelled to export raw materials to foreign countries. The demands for raw materials are high and mostly, these were taken from our natural resources thus resulting to our environment’s serious damage. In order to cope up with the greater demands, there must be greater supplies as well therefore there should be mass productions of raw materials. When there’s a need for mass production, there should be bigger capital to finance the operation. This entire concept forced our government to borrow money from foreign countries making our economy to swell even more. The irony with this strategy is that we are just making global corporations to get richer as well as those already rich countries. Only few local elites get the benefits. Our future generations will then face the destructing consequences- greater debts and polluted environment. Indeed, this globalization strategy leaves nothing but contaminated and hazardous environment to live.

However, the recent calamity knows no boundaries nor status. Rich and poor alike suffers the wrath of nature. Yet, the poor victims becomes more hopeless because most of them lost their sources of income. I really do not know how should we go about it. But I guess we, Filipinos cannot afford to witness massive destruction again in the future. Yes, we are aware that we will be expecting for more typhoons, but can we afford to have another casualties again?

What's The Real Score

It's almost a week since Super Typhoon Yolanda devastated Tacloban City and its neighboring provinces. The damage was totally devastating indeed. Lots of relief goods are coming both from within and outside the country. It's so overwhelming how the people/countries joined efforts in sending help to the affected areas. Here in Cagayan de Oro alone, many non-government organizations, companies, private entities and even individuals initiated a relief operations. Indeed, the support was so touching and overwhelming.

However, it cannot be denied that there are some factions going on between the government and some "concerned citizens". There are lots of negative comments against the government concerning how slow the response was. But if we watch the news every night, such claims seems not true at all. The government was in fact very busy with their efforts in giving help to the victims. DSWD Secretary Dinky Soliman even broke her silence regarding those negative comments. On her FB accounts she wrote that all efforts were done, 24/7. Well, I can't really say that such post was really from her because I doubt with its grammar and spelling LOL, but it was posted on her FB account (just click the link). 

In my opinion, it's really hard to judge them (the government officials) considering that the impact of the calamity was so great that one can only think of running away from it if given the choice. If we also based our judgment on the victim themselves, they seems too hopeless with the situations. They just cannot rely on food ration and relief goods forever. Though it is their immediate needs but for how long will they entrust their lives to the help of other people? And for how long will the government be able to support them. Most of them are homeless, jobless and worst have lost some, if not all, members of their family and maybe among the casualties was their breadwinner. So how could they stand on their own if they felt like so hopeless with their situations? It is also reported that the food ration given to them will only last for 2 to 3 days depending on the number of its family members. Indeed, the situation itself was so disheartening. Only courageous people can stand to such scenario. Maybe, this is the right time for the government to show to the people, especially to those who thought negative against them, that their priorities was for the welfare of all the victims. With that, a permanent shelter should be built (this time, on a safer place) that could accommodate them all. I guess money is not an issue here because basing on the cash donations we received or we will be receiving from international entities, it worth billions of pesos plus the money coming from within the country. 

Let's just pray that all the cash donations being collected will really be utilized to where and whom it is intended for. Let us also keep on tracking the progress of the relief operations. Let us all be vigilant in guarding the amount that was entrusted to our country. Let us not frustrate those who extend their help and effort for our fallen provinces. And may the government will do something to mitigate such destruction if another Super Typhoon will try to devastate our country again.

As to the question if what was really the real score there in Tacloban and other affected areas, whether the controversial CNN correspondent is telling the accurate news or not, its not just right for me to say anything because first and foremost, I've never been there.

Super Typhoon Yolanda Claimed More Lives in Leyte

I thought Super Typhoon Yolanda wasted three lives only per report prior to her exit but I was so surprised and sad after seeing the news brought by GMA's Jiggy Manicad and Love AƱover who were both broadcasting late (not live since the signal there was down) in Leyte. 

Another church was down in Leyte. The place whom people thought would be safer was torn down by the strongest winds that the people in Leyte have ever encountered. Leyte along with Samar were known to be a typhoon-prone provinces but so far, Typhoon Yolanda was the only Typhoon that brought such destruction. I know it will take longer before people in Leyte could recover as well as for other provinces that were severely affected too.

On the other hand, there are people who gave a very annoying remarks regarding the effect of typhoon here in Northern Mindanao. Some commented that the government were overly reacting with their preparations for the said typhoon. Those residents living on the flood-prone areas were forcefully instructed to vacate their respective residences and has to temporarily stay on designated evacuation centers until the typhoon will leave on the Philippines' area of responsibility. Instead of being grateful that what we experienced are only heavy rains, some people were reacting saying that their time was wasted because of the forceful evacuation.

Indeed, Senator MDS was right when she said that ignorance can be treated, but stupidity is forever.

The Great Dilemma Between New and Used Vehicles

It is an argument that goes back to the beginning of vehicles, and it still have never been fully resolved. When you are looking to buy a vehicle, you will first be presented with the question of whether or not you will want to buy a new vehicle. This can be a difficult question for many people, and there are advantages and disadvantages that are associated with both new and used vehicles. Here is a quick look at these benefits and drawbacks and how you can ultimately make the best decision for you and your family before you go to your local Larry Roesch Volkswagen dealer.

Buying Used

Many families want to buy a used vehicle, mainly because of the cheap price that is often associated with used vehicles. Not only will you not have to worry about a large down payment, but it will more than likely only take a few years in order to fully pay off your auto loan. The disadvantages of getting a used car are that you never know how well it will actually work. While most used cars will work perfectly fine for years to come, it is also possible that it will have a problem immediately after you buy the car, resulting in lost money.

Buying New

The huge advantage of buying a new vehicle from your local Larry Roesch Volkswagen dealer is that you will be able to have the assurance that your car will work. Even if there are problems, most dealerships offer special warranties that can help to keep you financially protected for years to come. New cars also have the benefit of looking great and just having the new car feeling. The problem with these vehicles is that they are expensive, often much more than a used car. Another problem with buying a new vehicle is that you more than likely will not have a huge amount of choice, since you will be restricted with this year’s current models.
