At the height of the Typhoon Yolanda disaster, no Filipino will be thinking anymore that the Mayor of Tacloban is Romualdez, the maiden surname of former first lady Imelda Marcos and the President is Aquino, surname of the late President Cory Aquino and her son who is the current president. Although it’s unbelievable that this statement was uttered in the disaster debriefing. Read about this statement by Mar Roxas that exhibits his poor taste:

WATCH: Mar telling Tacloban mayor ‘You are a Romualdez and the President is an Aquino’

By: www.philstar.com

MANILA, Philippines – A video showing Interior and Local Government Secretary Mar Roxas’ meeting with Tacloban City Mayor Alfred Romualdez surfaced in the video sharing site, YouTube, on Monday.

It was the same day that Romualdez appeared before the congressional oversight committee on the Philippine Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Act of 2010 at the Senate, where the mayor accused Roxas of playing politics at the height of the relief operations for the victims of super typhoon Yolanda in Tacloban City. http://www.philstar.com/news-videos/2013/12/10/1266468/watch-mar-telling-tacloban-mayor-you-are-romualdez-and-president


Mar Roxas’ justification why he said that poor statement is even more devious. His sarcasm when telling the media that the mayor may not have a clear mind anymore because of the intensity of the damages – added to his already deteriorating image. He sounds like a gossiping sissy in a beauty parlor. Wondering if the rumor is true!

Fitness firm exec is first Pinoy to reach outer space

By: Rainier Allan Ronda 

MANILA, Philippines – A 23-year-old coach and marketing manager of a fitness firm in Manila will be the first Filipino to reach outer space after he was selected to join a group of 24 ‘astronauts’ who will fly into space onboard the Space Expedition Corp. shuttle in 2015. http://www.philstar.com/headlines/2013/12/08/1265560/fitness-firm-exec-first-pinoy-reach-outer-space


2015 will mark another auspicious occasion in mankind’s existence in space aboard Space Expedition Corp. ‘s shuttle – and it is with great pride that somebody from the Philippines is one of the 23 chosen soon to be astronauts. Despite his overwhelming success, Roque is kind enough to feel for the ones who did not make it. Let’s hope for the best and may they have a safe travel back home.

Eulogy of President Obama for Nelson Mandela is for the Living

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

English: President Barack Obama welcomes Israe...

Nelson Mandela who passed away recently at 95 years old had lived long full years despite spending 30 years in prison. He has done exceptional things for Obama to call him the last great liberator of the 20th century. Many if not all of his achievements were geared towards fighting for human rights without violence.

Obama, in eulogy, calls Mandela ‘the last great liberator of the 20th century’

By:  Erin McClam

President Barack Obama challenged South Africa and the world on Tuesday to apply the immortal example of Nelson Mandela and lift children from poverty, spread freedom of belief and overcome inequality and cynicism. http://worldnews.nbcnews.com/_news/2013/12/10/21846409-obama-in-eulogy-calls-mandela-the-last-great-liberator-of-the-20th-century?lite


It is really true that people are still persecuted for the wrong reasons – their love choice, the way they are, their religion and who they voted for. These are proofs that we are still far away from a civilized world. Civilized in the sense that we know the priorities in life – which is to love our neighbors and care for the welfare of others. Know the true meaning of your existence and when that happens, the sacrifices of democratic icons like Nelson Mandela will be justified.

You are one in a million!

Rainbow Gravity does not Support Beginning of Time

The rainbow often signifies the end of sufferings to many according to biblical interpretations – but how can the universe end when it has actually no beginning? This is already very intriguing in itself and many people can’t help but wonder why it is so important for us to know the beginning of time? We may be able to get answers in the end – but we will not be here anymore to attest to that. Just read this article for entertainment purposes:

In a “Rainbow” Universe Time May Have No Beginning

By: Clara Moskowitz

What if the universe had no beginning, and time stretched back infinitely without a big bang to start things off? That’s one possible consequence of an idea called “rainbowgravity,” so-named because it posits that gravity’s effects on spacetime are felt differently by different wavelengths of light, aka different colors in the rainbow. http://www.scientificamerican.com/article.cfm?id=rainbow-gravity-universe-beginning&modsrc=most_popular


If the big bang never happened, then this will change all theories that everything exists because of that one period when all elements in space came together and formed an alignment that signifies the beginning. What is it for us if the existence of time is actually way beyond nothingness? Let’s move forward and live today because tomorrow has yet to come!
