Ferdinand Marcos on Healthcare Priority Agenda: Take Care of Filipino Hearts

Healthcare





By: Danilo Flores II

The next president of the Republic of the Philippines should put healthcare programs on top of the list of significant agenda. In the 2016 Presidential race, five contenders promised to ensure that all Filipinos must have a 100-percent Philhealth coverage. The present administration of President Digong aims to decongest the current specialty hospitals in Metro Manila. All provinces across the Philippines must at least have tertiary hospitals equipped with Intensive Care Units. If this is not possible in the current administration’s term, how about the next?

The Role of Local Government Units

As mandated by the Local Government Code of 1991, the Local Government Units must enjoy genuine and meaningful local autonomy to attain full development as self-reliant communities that contribute to the achievement of national goals. Features of the LGC include the relinquishing of responsibilities of the national government in favor of the government units to efficiently mobilize their own resources.




How Effective are the LGUs Delivering Healthcare Services?

Currently, the local government units in provincial, cities, municipalities down to barangay level has become inefficient in delivering basic healthcare services to the countryside. This can be primarily attributed to financial constraints. There is a great lack of budget for spending on infrastructure, purchase of medicines, ambulance and personnel. The sad reality is that LGU’s is not effective in providing healthcare services compared to the central government.




Alternative Source of Income

Hospitals in the provinces most likely become income generating projects of the Local Government Units. Such hospitals are now comparative to various private hospitals wherein patients could not be admitted without down payment. The LGU’s cannot afford to maintain the salaries and wages of the physicians, nurses, and staff without asking payments from the patients, defeating the very purpose of its creation.

Realistic Platform: Do it the Marcos Way

During the presidential race, the current administration pushed healthcare programs as one of its main platforms. The first six months of the term of President Digong proves that the President’s priority program is the war on drugs. Such advocacy has become controversial due to issues on extrajudicial killings. All Filipinos hope that he make good on his promise of establishing healthcare programs to uplift the overall health of the Filipino people. If not, at least the next president should make this a priority. Who’s that going to be? The current Vice President who is a neophyte in the executive level or the son, of the healthcare initiators in the country, Bongbong Marcos?

pilgrimage





By: Danilo Flores II

Political will, this is the common reason why both current President and former Vice President Jejomar Binay want Bongbong Marcos to be Vice President. Senator Bongbong, or Ferdinand Marcos Jr. finishes as seventh during the Senatorial race during in the 2010 national elections.






Youtube video by; EagleNews PH
[VIDEO]: QUEZON City, Philippines – In an exclusive interview with Weng Dela Fuente of the program “Liwanagin Natin”, Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos, Jr., declared his belief that the Vice-President can do more for the country, whoever wins the President. He said that there is no need to totally agree with each other…



Before becoming a Senator, Bongbong also serves as a Governor and a member of the House of Representatives. In his term as Senator, Bongbong becomes the chairman of the Committee on Local Government and Committee on Public Works.

On top of his chairmanship, Bongbong is also an active member of many other committees. Digong and Binay both believe that Bongbong Marcos can heal the wounds of Martial Law victims for they have both seen the truthfulness of his intentions to serve the Filipino people.




Supporters Want Digong – Bongbong Marcos Team Up

Former Davao City, now President Digong was a popular name fee months before the official campaign period began. The people appreciates the great achievements he accomplished in his City.

Many supporters from all over the country urge Davao’s chief to step up and lead the entire nations instead. The former mayor initially says he was too old and tired for the job. But the people’s cry went louder, then they were finally heard.




Upon official confirmation of his candidacy, the name of Bongbong Marcos instantly surfaces as Duterte’s perfect running mate. But the young Marcos already ties the knot with the late Senator Miriam Defensor Santiago.

Meanwhile, Digong finds a teammate in Senator Allan Peter Cayetano. The current President says he believes in the capability and political will of Sen. Cayetano to be his running mate and partner for change.

Digong Believes Ferdinand Marcos is A Hero; His Vote Is Always “YES”

Presidential Debates organized by the COMELEC seemed like a blockbuster hit anticipated by the Filipino people. The show provided an avenue where the people can get to know the aspiring Presidents and make a choice.

One of the debates by TV5 features a segment wherein the aspiring Presidents were asked a question answerable by a Yes or No. The controversial question is about their view on the burial of the late Marcos in the “Libingan ng mga Bayani.”

Digong and Binay voted Yes, while Grace Poe and Mar Roxas said No. During an ambush interview after the debate, Duterte said Ferdinand Marcos is a hero.

Jejomar Binay, a Human Rights Lawyer Favoring Bongbong Marcos Signifies that his Father is Accused Wrongly

Bongbong Marcos





By: Danilo Flores II

Jejomar Binay is the Vice President of the Republic of the Philippines during the administration of Benigno S. Aquino III. Despite his advocacy as a human rights lawyer, he asks Marcos to be his running mate during the last elections. It did not push through but there are speculations that a new Marcos-Binay tandem is possible in the near future but with the younger generation. Thereby justifying Binays’ relentless support of Bongbong Marcos under the Duterte administration.






Youtube video by; UNTV News and Rescue
[VIDEO]: Sen. Bongbong Marcos confirms offer to be VP Binay’s running mate in the 2016 election



VP Binay’s Quest To Make Bongbong Marcos His Running Mate

Bongbong Marcos is the son of the late Ferdinand Marcos whose presidency raises too many accusations of human rights violation. That is why a lot of critics ask why he wants Bongbong Marcos for his running during the 2016 national election. Marcos is replaced by Senator Gregorio Honasan but instead of campaigning for himself, Honasan endorses Bongbong Marcos as Vice President.




Jejomar Binay As A Human Rights Lawyer

Jejomar Binay helps Martial law victims and represents the political prisoners during the Marcos regime without any charge. Together with Sen. Joker Arroyo and Rene Saguisag they founded “MABINI” (Movement of Attorneys for Brotherhood Integrity and Nationalism).

During his term as Vice President, he served as the chairman of HUDCC (Housing and Urban Development Coordinating Council). Jejomar Binay is also the presidential adviser for Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs).

Jejomar Binay’s Decision

During Jejomar Binay’s term as the Vice President of the Republic of the Philippines, he is beyond the limits when the national budget is the subject. He feels that the administration does not support his budget to sustain his plans and programs in the office of the Vice President. And the reason he highlights is because they are not in one party.

In Binay’s visit to the Province of Ilocos Norte (the hometown of the Marcos family) to check the areas affected by typhoon Ineng, he meets the Provincial Governor, Imee Marcos. Imee is the daughter of the late Ferdinand Marcos and feels the same concern with Aquino’s administration.

Bongbong Marcos from V.P. to President

Bongbong Marcos’ sister and Binay talk about the development of Ilocos Norte neglected by the National government for the reason that the Aquino administration prioritizes only the selected provinces. The provinces with approved multi-million projects are only those who are in line with the Liberal Party’s  “Daang Matuwid” propaganda.

In the midst of their conversation, Binay tells the Governor that he hopes for a unifying and healing administration. Jejomar Binay together with Bongbong Marcos continues to jointly work towards the “unity” goal. Nevertheless, after Binay’s free assistance to the alleged human rights victims, he openly criticizes the Aquino administration for all their shortcomings especially in the area of public service. Binay can attest that the public service performance of the Marcoses are more humanitarian than the libelous leadership of the Aquinos that he and his family become a victim of as well. That’s when they are accused of corruption themselves with cases filed without probable cause.

Bongbong Marcos Agrees With Binay That BS Aquino Has Liability For Mamasapano

Mamasapano





By: Danilo Flores II

Former Vice Pres. Jejomar Binay questions the Ombudsman in their decision on why former pres. Benigno S. Aquino III is spared from the liability for the death of the SAF44. The Mamasapano massacre happens 2 years ago. Former Senator Bongbong Marcos agrees with former VP Binay’s opinions.






Youtube video by; INQUIRER.net
[VIDEO]: Senator Ferdinand “Bong-bong” Marcos Jr. said that President Benigno Aquino III is “key” in seeking the truth on the Mamasapano tragedy and that he must reveal what he knew about “Operation Exodus” and his role in the operation. Video by Aries Joseph Hegina/ INQUIRER.net



Anniversary Of Oplan Exodus

Filipinos are shocked by the “Mamasapano Massacre.” The clash between the armed rebel group and the soldiers results in the death of forty-four (44) elite police officers of the Special Action Force (SAF). It happens last January 25, 2015 at barangay Tukanalipao, Mamasapano, Maguindanao. No leader takes the liability for the orders that results to the unnecessary deaths. It also has a reward money in US dollars.




Who is Liable For The Mamasapano Clash?

The present administration is now raising a question. They are asking why the former pres. Benigno “PNoy” S. Aquino III  did not make any coordination with the AFP to handle the arrest of the said terrorist.

Marwan is reported to be protected by the Moro rebels in Mindanao. Accordingly, Pres. Aquino mentioned in his statement that the Special Action Force (SAF) can handle operation anywhere in the country.

Violation Of Police Chain Of Command

House of Representatives minority bloc recently conducted an investigation to determine who is liable for the anti-terrorist raid at Mamasapano that resulted to the death of the SAF 44. They found out that Benigno S. Aquino III is liable for the anti-terror operation that lead to the death of the police officers.

The reasons being laid down by the HoR is that first, he gave the stand down order to the artillery in the height of the encounter. Next is that he did not order the military to back up the SAF 44 who is pinned down at the river banks then reinforcement was too late.

The minority bloc made their findings based on the Philippine National Police(PNP) board of inquiry. It is also made in consonance to the senate report finding Benigno S. Aquino III is ultimately responsible for violating the police chain of command.

‘The Greatest Love’ Spoilers: Stella’s Suspicious Apology Will Just Bring Conflict To Alegre Family, And Worsen Gloria’s Health Condition

The Greatest Love





By: Danilo Flores II

“The Greatest Love” is at its peek after the show’s “Deep Impact” episode earlier in January. The viewers are gently pulled into watching the high-calibre performance of the cast especially by Gloria (Sylvia Sanchez who is suffering from Alzheimer’s Disease. “TGL” fans can’t wait for any new events about to unfold in the series.






Youtube video by; ABS-CBN Entertainment
[VIDEO]: Amanda, Paeng, Lizelle, and Andrei get into a heated confrontation.



Stella’s Apology To Gloria

Secondary antagonist of the Philippine TV series “The Greatest Love,” Stella Alegre-Policarpio (Tetchie Agbayani), is on her way in apologizing to the Alegre Family. This is after she knew that Gloria was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. she just took advantage in Gloria’s condition that could possibly worsen it.

She made the whole family believe in her apology. Even Amanda (Dimples Romana) and Paeng/Rafael (Arron Villaflor) undoubtedly accepted her plea for forgiveness. But the family don’t know her real agenda behind her pretentious actions in “The Greatest Love” series.




Conflict In The Alegre Family

The Alegre family of “The Greatest Love” series will face another trouble caused by the doubtful apology of their Aunt Stella. Amanda and Paeng forgive Stella, and tries to convince the whole family that Stella is now a changed person.

On the other side, Lizelle (Andi Eigenmann) and Andrei (Matt Evans) cannot accept it because of the fact that Stella is their enemy. They cannot forgive her easily because of her terrible views towards Gloria’s family. All that’s in their minds is Stella is not sincere in her apology.

The Greatest Love

As a normal plot of the “The Greatest Love” series, the siblings are very vulnerable to misunderstandings and would normally fight over certain issues faced by the family. Even Gloria herself is hesitant on the surprising actions that Stella did.

Amanda and Paeng were directly convinced by Stella and forgive her without any question. While on the other hand, the two siblings, Lizelle and Andrei, cannot really deny the fact that Stella has a bad attitude that accepting her apology is a hard thing for them to do.

Effect To Gloria’s Condition

With the current situation of Gloria, Stella should not have made an apology to the family.  Her apology will only bring misunderstanding and chaos to them, and would only worsen Gloria’s state of mind. Gloria will likely be more stressed and depressed especially when she sees her children quarreling as previously show by her character in “The Greatest Love” Series.

Samsung’s Latest Smartphones In 2017; Samsung Galaxy A3 And A5 Specs, Price And Release Date

Samsung Galaxy





By: Danilo Flores II

The controversy on Samsung’s alleged exploding phones is now over. It finally recovers after the discovery of cheap imitations. Samsung is slowly gaining their momentum towards supremacy when it comes to smartphones with its Samsung Galaxy series.






Youtube video by; Waqar Khan
[VIDEO]: Hey guys in this video i am going to show you Galaxy A3, A5, A7 (2017) – Official Specs & Features…



Samsung’s Latest Smartphones

To invade the global market this 2017 are Samsung Galaxy A3 and Samsung Galaxy A5. These smartphones are now available for pre-order and will soon be out for the public. These latest Samsung smartphones are expected to be as successful as it’s the latest release of Galaxy S7 Edge.




Samsung Galaxy A3 And A5 Specs

Samsung Galaxy A3 has a 4.7-inch screen and Samsung Galaxy A5 has a 5.2-inch display. Both of these displays include always-on technology allowing users to check for key notifications without waking up the device and wasting precious battery life.

The same with Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, the new A series are rated IP68 which means they can cope with a dip in water and are resistant to dust. An enhanced rear-facing camera and taking selfies feature has been made much easier for the user with the ability to touch anywhere on the screen to snap a high-resolution snap of your face.

The low light slot would no longer be a problem because Samsung Galaxy A3 & A5 uses the display as a front flash. Samsung says it’s trying to make smartphone photography less complicated on the A series with quick access to shot modes and instant filters which add effects to pictures.

Users can also use specific modes such as Food Mode to optimize and enhance the color and contrast of selected shots. There are no official specs on battery life but Samsung is boasting a long-lasting performance and fast charging via a USB Type-C port.

Samsung Galaxy A3 And A5 Price

While it has been an issue for the high-priced Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, Galaxy A3 & A5 can be availed at a low cost. Galaxy A3 & A5 prices start at £279 or $348 dollars only. An obvious deviation from the price of Galaxy S7 Edge.

Phone Protection: NQ Mobile Security 2 years or NQ Mobile Security 1 year

Samsung Galaxy A3 And A5 Release Date

The news of these latest devices hitting the shops comes as Samsung has revealed its next flagship Galaxy S8 won’t get its usual February release date. The highly-anticipated smartphones will be announced at a later date.

For the last three years, Samsung has used the popular MWC trade show to announce the latest iteration of its flagship Galaxy S series. But that won’t be the case this year, with fans forced to wait longer than expected before the chance to upgrade their device.

‘Die Beautiful’ Best Actor Paolo Ballesteros Surprises Audience In Every Celebrity Transformation

Die Beautiful





By: Danilo Flores II

By now, it’s pretty needless to talk about the awards “Die Beautiful” has gotten or how many international film fests this has been invited to. This is one of the Filipino movies that no longer needs domestic validation from Filipinos too. From the buzz it is making online, Director Jun Lana and Paolo Ballesteros definitely could not ask for more.






Youtube video by; Regal Entertainment, Inc.
[VIDEO]: Can you guess how many make-up transformation Paolo Ballesteros did in this movie?




Life & Death Of Tricia in “Die Beautiful”

 

Some of the viewers were expecting that “Die Beautiful” would reveal some jaw-dropping twist, a “whoah!” bomb that would surprise audiences while watching. I thought that this twist would be about how Tricia (Paolo Ballesteros) died.

But that didn’t happen. Yet, it wasn’t really a disappointment. It’s because the movie’s narrative was a beautiful irony to everyone’s expectation. Viewers were waiting for the story to elaborate on the specific details of his death because he wanted to “Die Beautiful.”

However, the story wasn’t really about her death but focused more on how Tricia lived his/her beautiful life. This is made even better with her total transformation to different famous Hollywood Celebrities, that made it somewhat different from other Filipino movies in the Metro Manila Film Festival.





Paolo Ballesteros’ Makeup Transformation

Award-winning actor Paolo Ballesteros have already made noise in social media about his versatility in imitating the looks of famous celebrity which he did all by himself. In “Die Beautiful” this talent was showcased.

Plenty of celebrities, both local and international have been shown in the film as the result of Tricia’s makeup transformation. We have Regine Velasquez, Melanie Marquez, Jacklyn Jose and Iza Calsado. For Hollywood, we can see Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, and Beyonce.





Social Impact On LGBT Community

“Die Beautiful’s” relatability, along with its social commentary on Philippines’ still-uncomfortable acceptance of the LGBT community, is its best asset. The living proof of that is Barbs, the character played by the newcomer Christian Bables.


Phone Protection: NQ Mobile Security 2 years or NQ Mobile Security 1 year

This guy, I believe, equally deserves best supporting actor accolades from everywhere. Tricia and Barbs’ chemistry, carrying the language and behavior we have all grown to love in recent times, is definitely why “Die Beautiful” is one of this year’s easy favorites.

AMD’s Zen Based Processor

After several failed attempts to dominate the CPU market, AMD strikes back with a promising Zen based processor architecture.

AMD’s AM4-based X370 units

Alongside AMD Ryzen processors, the aspiring tech giant has also recently launched its next-generation motherboards. AMD’s AM4-based X370 units is set at the high-end segment of the AM4 platform.

Saving Sally: A Movie That’s Worth 12 Years Of Waiting, Explore Marty’s The Comic World

Saving Sally





By: Danilo Flores II

“Saving Sally” which was finally finish after twelve long years is a perfect harmony of animation and live action. “Saving Sally” is the masterpiece that famous Gallerist Liongoren created by the pieces in between his other projects that tells the tale of a boy who is deeply in love with a girl.






Youtube video by; Pelikula Mania
[VIDEO]: SAVING SALLY (MMFF 2016) Official Trailer Rhian Ramos



Saving Sally 12 Years Production

The successful “Saving Sally” film made its first appearance on the social media site Facebook. Film creator Liongoren at that time was raising much needed funds to finish the movie’s pot-production. Viewers got their first view of what “Saving Sally” had in store through a short trailer, black and white, with unfinished special effects.

The gallerist’s appeal made some noise as live actors took interest. But after some time, “Saving Sally” plea disappeared. Fortunately, a few years later, that is today, the masterpiece was rescued by its creator’s blood and sweat as Liongoren gave everything up just to give Saving Sally its much deserved finish. The film was mostly in English but bits of Japanese anime’s “will somebody say something already” plot is evident.


Saving Sally Plot

From the very moment Sally (Rhian Ramos) rescued Marty (Enzo Marcos) from bullies in school, the boy was smitten and ever since fell deeply in love with her. Marty was an artist and viewers were made to see the world through his comic-books. Saving Sally tells the tale of Marty as he tries to save Sally from the monsters of the world, including herself. One notable character is Nick, Sally’s boyfriend who was totally childish but proved to be essential in making one strong point in the end.




Filipino Customs And Culture

The world through Marty’s comic books is astonishing! Brilliant colors filled all its corners with eccentric shapes and adorable cartoons. Plus, it is refreshing to see that the Filipino culture prevalent in Marty’s comics through the famous Filipino Jeepney and masked characters that go around the University of the Philippines. Even the sight of street foods vendors in the comic-word is exciting.

Saving Sally’s lack of dynamics in terms of moving shots as well as CGI backgrounds for most, if not all, of its scenes on top of character’s lack of mobility during scenes is undeniably a sign of the film’s age. But this was taken as an opportunity for creators to show off their passion, creativity and originality.

Evolution of Filipino Cinematics

Saving Sally is truly an evolution of the Filipino cinematics. Saving Sally takes viewers to a journey, a roller coaster ride through a light and bubbly plot with adequate references. The movie’s adorable leads and storyline is truly relatable as the story progress. Saving Sally will definitely become a timeless reference that will demonstrate how special outcomes are when visual arts and film-making meet.
