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:
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!
By: Elena Grace Flores 3 Billion US dollars is a lot of money for the typhoon stricken Eastern region in the Philippines – but this can be raised with the help of foreign donations. Japan is one of the current countries donating for the rehabilitation of the area. This was announced during the interview of the President in Tokyo last Friday.
No matter how expensive the money that has to be paid, this is not the major concern. It is troubling enough watching the pleas of the typhoon victims whom most of them lost a loved done if not all. What would life be without the people you care about? Yes, losing someone is a passing stage in life – but losing them drastically like this incident is enough to make a surviving person psychologically unstable. Hope that a great scale of help will come for this need at the soonest possible time.
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:
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!

It is already a big deal seeing foreign people helping out in Tacloban after Typhoon Yolanda’s devastation – but what more if that foreigner is Justin Bieber? This is just a low profile event and the international star was seen having some fun while playing basketball with the children who survived the disaster. Such a humble and heartfelt gesture from a very famous youngster. Get inspired by reading this:
In the midst of sorrow, depression and hopelessness – the kind presence alone of Justin Bieber draw lots of hope, inspiration and happiness among the affected ones. Not to mention their excitement in spending some moments with him. Unicef’s participation in this event is very much appreciated and to Justin Bieber, thank you for caring for the less fortunate. You are one in a million!
38.8 Billion Pesos supplemental budget is needed to rebuild Tacloban that was wiped out by the recent outrage of typhoon Yolanda. This is only for the first 5 priorities – relief supplies, shelter, livelihood restoration, utility services and immediate infrastructure as per Rappler.com. Foreign aids are pouring in and the people are asking – where do they all went. Maybe this will help:
Philippines: Timely Reconstruction to Lessen Impact of Typhoon Yolanda—World Bank
500 million US$ sounds like a lot of money but Philippines need more than that at this point in time. The initial budget of 38.8B is not yet final because what about hospital manpower, medical equipment/facilities and many more to at least counsel depressed victims? Bear in mind also that although Tacloban was badly hit, so as other parts of the eastern region. Hope that many more generous bodies will help out in rehabilitating survivors from their unimaginable trauma – and thanks to all the countries, associations and individuals who are kind enough in contributing to the rebuilding of Tacloban and elsewhere.
