Incorporate Climate Change Efforts into the Minds of the Young Ones


welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
Scary movies stressing out the proximity of climate changes are very disturbing. It is good to know that experts in this field are brainstorming on what the world can do to ease the problem. Devastation is already happening but even if we are doing measures for the next generations in line, it is still worth it. Know this recent climate change effort:

COMDEV week highlighted awareness of Climate Change and Community Empowerment

By: Arellano University

The office for Community Development celebrated its ComDev Week on Dec. 11 – 15, 2013 with the twin objectives; to increase the awareness and knowledge of the student youth  regarding the effects of climate change; and, to motivate them towards taking action in protecting the environment through engaging in the outreach and extension programs of the university.  http://www.arellano.edu.ph/news-and-articles/comdev-week-highlighted-awareness-climate-change-and-community-empowerment

Perhaps it is also important to point our children to the importance of getting involved with the preservation of natural resources. Often, the young ones are already loaded with school, domestic and social responsibilities. Then when they reached adulthood, they will be so overwhelmed with how to make money. What about community service that includes world preservation in general? Well, we can always start at home by doing the simplest thing of segregating our garbage and so much more as time goes by!

Captured Dog Created a Stir in the Military


welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
Cultural beliefs on dogs created negativity in the military situation in Afghan where a military dog allegedly belonging to the English troops was captured by the local soldiers. It was initially thought to belong to the US service men. Read the news here:

Afghan Taliban capture British military dog

By: News Asia

SAF officials in Afghanistan have confirmed a military dog went missing during a mission in December last year.

US military sources say the dog belonged to a coalition partner and the BBC understands it was working for British forces.

The Taliban earlier released footage of what they claimed was a dog they captured from US troops. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-26062679


The Afghans believed that dogs can be trained to kill that made them indifferent towards it.  Who can blame them? Nonetheless, it can’t be denied that dogs are great help for the military. What is not certain is, what to do with one when captured during the conflict?

Be a Man: Plea from the Alleged Rape Victim of Vhong Navarro


welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
I considered myself a defender of rape victims but with the Vhong Navarro’s alleged rape case, I am very hesitant to side with Denise Cornejo. Although this video is very heartbreaking, there are very obvious mannerisms, facial expressions, accusations and even phrases or terms that are in connivance with the text messages and views of Cedric Lee who is the alleged mastermind of the setup:

Startalk Exclusive: Deniece Cornejo: Vhong, magpaka-lalaki ka!

Posted at Youtube by:  GMA News


Magpaka-lalaki ka or be a man in English seems to be repetitive when it comes to Denise and Cedrick. Is Vhong Navarro not man enough to betray his girlfriend by succumbing to the invitation of Denise to go to her condo for unknown or obvious reasons? If this is a date rape situation, she I think, put herself into the plot willingly! Therefore, she is not in the position to teach Vhong right manners when she failed to follow the basic traits of a Filipina – plus, she have the wrong friends. It’s a pity for her family but it is also understood that a family will always defend a family member regardless if it is right or wrong.

Is Death Penalty the Solution to Child Rape-Slay?

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
I remember during President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo’s time – that there was great need for the Death Penalty to be abolished because of the loop holes in the Philippine’s justice system. Many innocent people paid for crimes they did not commit. Often, they were already dead when the real perpetrators are put into jail. However in the present time,  Child Rape-Slay cases are on the rise. Like this one:

Rape-slay suspect nabbed in Manila

By: Aie Balagtas See

MANILA, Philippines – The Manila Police District arrested a pedicab driver for allegedly raping and killing a six-year-old girl in Paco, Manila on Monday night.

Police identified the suspect as Mark Avila, 29.

Avila was driving his pedicab when operatives of the MPD-homicide division and Station 10 pounced on him.  http://www.philstar.com/metro/2014/01/22/1281484/rape-slay-suspect-nabbed-manila


Death Penalty can work well like in Brunei – where crime rate is law because of harsh punishments but will it work in the Philippines – where corruption is eminent? Would it be better to strengthen the justice system first before resorting to Death Penalty? Quite a thought and child protection is for sure an immediate challenge for the government to act upon – so that our children can be safe at home!

Love is Nothing when the Subject is Dead

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
We all die regardless of our status but sometimes many parents end up being so cruel in protecting their children – not knowing that they could scar them for life. This video shows a protective father that hindered the love affair of his daughter for obvious reasons. However, when the lover got killed while protecting her – there’s nothing a father could do to pacify her:

A heart touching Love story that would make you cry!


Posted at YouTube by: Rhob Sanchez

Parents must guide their children to the right path but still, their lives do not belong to their father and mother only. They have to grow up and find their own purpose. So, if they fall while soul searching – the parents can only give advices and support to help them stand up again but never control their choices and direction because fate does not belong to anyone in this world. You do not want to be the reason of your loved ones grief for life, right?
