The Welsh housing sector is calling on the new Welsh Government to recognise the vital impact housing has on health, education and the economy in Wales by committing to an ambitious plan for housing in their new Programme for Government. Following yesterday’s National Assembly for Wales election, Labour has secured 29 seats to remain the biggest party in the Assembly.
Sixteen years ago, Community Housing Cymru set up an Award scheme to recognise housing innovation in memory of a special person - Pat Chown.
As a way of remembering Pat, her contribution to housing and her constant search for better ways of doing things, Community Housing Cymru is inviting entries for the Capturing Creativity Award. The Award judges will be looking for entries which demonstrate that the project has been ground-breaking.
To find out more about the award, go to CHC's blog to read a post by John Chown, member of the judging panel.
Community Housing Cymru (CHC), the membership body for Welsh housing associations, has appointed its new Director of Policy. Clarissa, who is originally from Swansea, will head up CHC’s Policy and External Affairs team.
Some of Wales’ leading business figures have given their backing to the Homes for Wales campaign. A variety of top Welsh business leaders, including Federation of Small Businesses Wales, CBI Cymru, Welsh ICE, Pro Steel Engineering and Learning and Work Institute Wales, have added their voice to the Homes for Wales campaign via social media to support the need for continued investment in housing. Backing from the business world for the Homes for Wales campaign comes in addition to the thousands who have supported in person at a rally in Cardiff earlier this month, online and via social media.
At the Rural Regeneration Conference in March 2015, the Minister announced a two year funding commitment for Rural Housing Enablers in Wales. Hundreds of people are set to attend the Homes for Wales rally which takes place in Cardiff today (4 March). Supporters will travel from all over Wales to highlight that housing needs to be a key political issue ahead of May’s National Assembly for Wales elections.
This public-facing campaign aims to shine the spotlight on how the housing crisis is impacting people in Wales in different ways. Over a thousand people have supported the campaign online and celebrity supporters include Hollywood actor Michael Sheen, Welsh legend Max Boyce, Welsh comedian Rhod Gilbert, Welsh film producer and actor Jonny Owen and BAFTA award-winning actress Vicky McClure.
The Department for Work and Pensions has today announced a one year exception to the Local Housing Allowance cap for supported accommodation in the social housing sector. Further guidance will be issued by the DWP shortly, but the statement highlighted refuges for those fleeing domestic abuse, homeless provision, housing for ex-offenders and supported housing for older people and disabled people as examples of accommodation subject to the exception. Community Housing Cymru welcomes today’s announcement which follows several months of lobbying from the housing sector, along with continued dialogue with the DWP, but we remain concerned about the implications of the policy.
The one year pause in applying the cap to supported accommodation gives DWP the opportunity to continue their strategic review of supported housing through Ipsos MORI, but it does not offer certainty to tenants or social housing providers over the future of supported housing.
Our recent survey of Welsh housing associations found that the rent for 57% of supported accommodation is over the current LHA rate, and we are clear that the UK Government’s offer of a slight increase in DHP is inadequate.
The Local Housing Allowance cap will still apply to all other new tenancies signed from April 2016, with any cut to housing benefit applicable from April 2018, and CHC’s priority will now be to ascertain the exact details of this policy which are still unclear.
This investment will also provide a boost to employment in Wales supporting up to 800 jobs - including 300 in the design and build of new schools in our communities and 500 in providing affordable housing. Alongside the additional capital investment, the Minister has also published an update of the Wales Infrastructure Investment Plan project pipeline in line with our ambition of providing a comprehensive picture of infrastructure investment across Wales.
The Department for Work and Pensions has since clarified that the cap will also be applied to housing benefit for tenants in supported and sheltered housing. Supported Housing is accommodation designated for some of the most vulnerable people in our communities. The provision of this additional support incurs a greater cost for landlords than the provision of general needs housing, and this is reflected through higher levels of rent. We are in the process of modelling the impact of these changes and gathering evidence to highlight the risk it presents to providers of supported and sheltered housing. To be clear, cuts of this scale will threaten the viability of supported and specified accommodation in the social rented sector in the future.
Meanwhile, under 35s will see their rental income capped at the Shared Accommodation rate under LHA.
The application of the under 35s Shared Accommodation Rate to social rented tenancies is of concern to us beyond the direct impact it would have on the funding of supported housing.
As stated by our partners in Scotland and England, we are concerned about the Government’s proposal in the Spending Review which states that Discretionary Housing Payment will be the vehicle for dealing with some of the resulting shortfall for supported housing. The Discretionary Housing Payments system is not designed or funded to meet all requests for assistance and to rely on it to help those in supported housing with a new benefit cap would leave local authorities to decide between individuals with varying levels of support needs. The impact of the LHA cap will be felt very soon as new tenants in supported housing from 1st April 2016 will face uncertainty about their future ability to pay their rent. For further information on capping housing benefit to LHA rate, please read our in depth briefing.
Welsh Government has today announced the members of the new independent Regulatory Board for Wales. Ground-breaking legislation to improve the lives of the one million people in Wales who rent their home, has today been granted Royal Assent by Her Majesty the Queen. The Renting Homes (Wales) Act 2016 will make renting a home simpler and easier, replacing various and complex pieces of existing legislation with one clear legal framework.
A Bill receives Royal Assent when Letters Patent under the Welsh Seal signed with Her Majesty’s own hand signifying Her Assent are notified to the Clerk of the Assembly. The First Minister of Wales, as Keeper of the Welsh Seal, applied the Seal to the Letters Patent in a ceremony in Cardiff earlier today. Homes for Wales is a coalition led by Community Housing Cymru, Care & Repair Cymru, CIH Cymru, Shelter Cymru, Welsh Tenants, Home Builders Federation, Residential Landlords Association and RTPI Cymru. You can sign up to support the campaign on the website, as well as downloading campaign resources such as logos, posters, postcards and explainer documents.
Our showcase event for the campaign will take place from 1pm on Friday 4th March, 2016 – the Homes for Wales rally. While we welcome the increase in SHG, it is vital to emphasise the importance of a secure rental income stream.
Any further cuts to Supporting People could have had disastrous consequences for vulnerable people across Wales which is why today’s announcement is so welcome. Over the last year, we have worked in partnership with Cymorth Cymru to highlight the benefits of Supporting People and to call for its protection.
The first ever Welsh Apprentice Challenge was launched at Community Housing Cymru's Annual Conference on 19th November. Team A - Callum (Pembrokeshire Housing), Daniel (Tai Ceredigion), Deri (Bron Afon Community Housing), Joseph (Celtic Horizons) and Katie (Merthyr Valleys Homes). Team United - Daniel (Tai Ceredigion), Demi (Cadwyn Housing Association), Emma (Celtic Horizons), James (North Wales Housing) and Lloyd (Valleys to Coast). Team C - Daniel (Taff), Emily (Cartrefi Conwy), Karolina (Monmouthshire Housing), Mathew (Coastal Housing Group), Oliver (Newport City Homes).
Although we welcome the Chancellor’s U-turn on tax credits, all this will do in the long term is delay cuts until the full introduction of Universal Credit.
A new agreement between Community Housing Cymru and Public Health Wales has committed the organisations to working more closely together to improve the lives and health of people in the most deprived communities in Wales. The memorandum is a commitment to a joint focus on prevention and early intervention, to ensuring work is informed by the best national and international evidence and to taking action to empower communities to improve health and wellbeing. The commitment will also enable the establishment of a joint Health and Housing Public Health Task Group including key representatives from health, housing, community and social care.
Tracey Cooper, Chief Executive of Public Health Wales, said: "This memorandum marks the start of an exciting and purposeful partnership between Public Health Wales and Community Housing Cymru.
The memorandum was signed by Chief Executive of Community Housing Cymru, Stuart Ropke, and Chief Executive of Public Health Wales, Dr Tracey Cooper at CHC’s Annual Conference on 19 November 2015. Community Housing Cymru (CHC) is today (19 November) launching its first Welsh Apprentice Challenge. Conference delegates will vote for their favourite campaign idea and the overall Welsh Apprentice champions will be awarded a certificate for their efforts by Julie James AM, Welsh Government’s Deputy Minister for Skills and Technology. Demi Stephenson, fellow apprentice challenger, secured her job as an electrician with Cadwyn Housing Association after working full time voluntarily for several months.
The Welsh Apprentice Challenge is being supported by TSW Training and The Prince’s Trust.
Launched today (18th November), the findings are part of the latest Welsh Economy Research Unit (WERU) report, commissioned by Community Housing Cymru (CHC), which focuses on the wider economic impact of the social housing sector in Wales. In less than a decade, Welsh housing associations have spent around £3bn in the Welsh economy on building and maintaining properties. We are working with colleagues from the devolved nations to ensure that the independence of the Welsh, Scottish and Northern Irish housing association sector is protected. Community Housing Cymru Group (CHC) has welcomed news that Welsh Government is set to exceed the 10,000 affordable homes target.
This week (October 12th) Care & Repair Cymru is shining the spotlight on the scandal of excess winter deaths as it launches its Fighting Fuel Poverty campaign. The Wales-wide campaign aims to highlight the huge problem of fuel poverty and save the lives of thousands of older people in Wales, who might otherwise die this winter due to the cold weather. Care & Repair Cymru also say that older people not having bank accounts, or being digitally excluded from the internet, can prevent many pensioner households from accessing better energy prices and tariffs, and households in arrears often end up on more expensive pre-payment meters, therefore exacerbating the problem. During its Fighting Fuel Poverty campaign , the registered charity will be running fundraising initiatives to champion the rights of older people to stay independent, warm and well this winter by offering practical help on the ground at the homes of older people in need.
The Fighting Fuel Poverty campaign begins with a plea for donations which will directly help older people with boiler repairs, home insulation, and other practical help that make their homes warmer and safer. Care & Repair Cymru is also running the #scarfie campaign (a scarf selfie) to raise awareness of excess winter deaths. If you are an older person who thinks they could benefit from some help and advice from Care & Repair Cymru and its Fighting Fuel Poverty campaign, please call 029 2067 4830. David Taylor, a Board Member at Newport City Homes, sadly passed away on Friday 2nd October. BAGUIO CITY — A 17-year-old boy died in one of ten vehicular accidents that were recorded in the upland Cordilleras on Saturday.
Crispin Binay-og was hurled down a 14-meter deep ravine after crashing his motorcycle into a mountain wall at Sitio Latang, Calutit village in Mountain Province capital Bontoc at 2 a.m. At midnight in Ifugao capital, Lagawe, a tricycle struck an SUV along the national road in Cudog village, injuring the tricycle’s lone passenger who was treated at the Ifugao Provincial Hospital.
NAGA CITY— Liberal Party (LP) vice presidential candidate Leni Robredo took a 12-hour public bus ride from Quezon City to her hometown on the eve of Election Day in what she hoped would be a storybook ending to an underdog campaign. Heavy traffic delayed the trip by two hours but the Camarines Sur congresswoman, in a yellow shirt and wearing no makeup, was all smiles as she greeted and posed for pictures with well-wishers upon alighting at the Naga terminal at a little past noon. She was accompanied by her three daughters Aika, Tricia, and Jillian, four in-laws, members of her staff, and select media. The 51-year-old Robredo tried to play it off as nothing more than her usual homecoming, saying it would cost a lot more to take flights, but the presence of a small army of reporters and cameramen showed otherwise. Robredo has often emphasized the contrast between her simple ways and the excesses of her rivals, particularly Sen. The widow of Interior Secretary Jesse Robredo had planned to attend morning Mass but had to scrap that because of the delay. Speaking to reporters at the bus terminal, Robredo ruminated on the importance of Monday’s electoral exercise in deciding the future of the country. Robredo, who was thrust into politics after her husband died in a plane crash in August 2012, started out as a little-known underdog when she accepted the offer to be the running mate of LP standard-bearer Mar Roxas, who succeeded her husband in the interior department.
But the only woman and House member in a field crowded with male senators slowly raised her profile among the voters, rising up the ranks and going toe-to-toe with her rivals. Her platform has focused on alleviating poverty and providing assistance to those living on the fringes of society, empowering women and children, and promoting transparency and honesty in governance. From a one percent rating in October, she now enjoys frontrunner status, placing first or a close second to Marcos in the latest voter preference polls. Robredo will cast her vote in the Tabuco Central School only minutes away from the family home. TAGUM CITY — Preparations to ensure safe and peaceful elections have  been put in place in Compostela Valley as of Sunday, and the 700-strong Compostela Valley police have been placed on alert, Senior Supt. Contrary to circulating text messages about supposed attempts to rig the elections and harassment by unknown persons in the province, Ferro said that “all’s been well in Compostela Valley” and its 11 towns.
He said there was also no truth to reports that the province has been placed under the control of the Commission on Elections (Comelec). Allegations of vote-buying have been circulating on social media with supposed cash-in-sample-ballots making rounds on social network.
CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY – A local performance artist has reiterated the call of the Catholic Church urging people not to sell their votes, as Filipinos prepare to cast their ballots Monday.
As people pass him by, there are those who take a quick glance at him, while others ignore his presence altogether.
But the artist said he is still hopeful that things will change for the better and that only the people, not the politicians, can effect that change. Aca said he is supporting the call of Cagayan de Oro Archbishop Antonio Ledesma who, in his pastor letter to all parishioners, church leaders, and lay workers in the archdiocese, has enjoined the faithful not to exchange their vote for a sum of money from political aspirants. Ledesma has gained the ire of some of the supporters of presidential hopeful and Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte who accused the prelate in singling out the latter in his letter when he said “these summary killings, without formal charges and due process, can never be justified – whether or not the victims are suspected criminals or rebels or workers on strike. Citing a report compiled by the Commission on Human Rights (CHR) and Human Rights Watch (HRW), Ledesma said of the 1,424 extrajudicial killings in Davao City from 1998 to 2015, 132 of these were children.
Meanwhile, the Philippine Council of Evangelical Churches (PCEC), in a separate pastoral letter, advised its members to choose good leaders based on what had been stipulated in the Bible.
A leader, the PCEC said, must be capable, God-fearing, trustworthy, honest, and hates bribes.
Quoting passages from the Bible, the council said a foolish person is the one who slanders, jokes about wrongdoing, boasts, stubbornly right in one’s own eyes, lashes out in rash words like sword thrusts, and expresses no shame over one’s folly, among others. Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull holds his hand up as he speaks to the media during a press conference at Parliament House in Canberra, Australia, Sunday, May 8, 2016. The government wants to bring back the Australian Building and Construction Commission, scrapped by the former Labor government and loathed by union leaders, and is prepared to stake its political future to achieve its goal.
A double dissolution election is significant because it is the only occasion on which all senators face election at the same time. Australian governments generally control numbers in the lower house, but due to Australia’s proportional voting system they often do not have the same sway in the Senate.
This election is only the seventh time a double dissolution has been called and has been criticised as opportunistic by the government looking to boost its numbers in the upper house.
Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, a polished millionaire former banker whose socially liberal views include support for gay marriage, is up against Labor’s Bill Shorten, an ambitious and articulate former union chief whose mantra is fighting for middle and working class families.
Turnbull wrested power from Liberal Party colleague Tony Abbott last September and has consistently been ahead of Shorten in opinion polls, although the gap has narrowed in recent months. The government is centring its campaign around economic management, arguing it has the fiscal know-how to ensure the country transitions from an unprecedented mining investment boom to one that is more diverse and creates new jobs. Labor’s pitch is focused on looking after lower-and-middle income families, improving schools and healthcare, pushing for more renewable energy and a fairer tax system.
Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton speaks at a rally at La Escuelita School in Oakland, Calif., Friday, May 6, 2016.
WASHINGTON — In a US election that has ripped up, chewed through and spat out conventional wisdom, Hillary Clinton is still prohibitive favorite to beat Donald Trump in November.
But here is why Clinton is still odds-on favorite to become the first female president, along with a few reasons why a dose of caution might be warranted. That is a monumental lead in a country almost evenly split between Democrats and Republicans. And US elections are won by carrying individual states, not the popular vote, as Al Gore found to his cost in 2000. About 65 percent of voters have a negative impression of Trump, according to an average of polls by Real Clear Politics. Given he has been in the public eye for years, he is widely known and minds could be difficult to shift. Trump’s rivals learned the hard way that getting in the mud with him rarely pays off, but taking the high road might look detached or meek. The long trend of America becoming less white means Trump, with his pseudo-nativist message, is also waging a campaign against demographics. In the 2012 election, 93 percent of African-Americans, 71 percent of Hispanics and 73 percent of Asians voted for Barack Obama.
That was enough for the Democrat to win the election, even though he only got 39 percent of white voters, the biggest voting group.
If he can’t reach working and college educated women, then even blue collar states like Pennsylvania may remain out of reach.
Trump may target states in the Rust Belt and New England, and battlegrounds like Florida and Ohio, but he faces the prospect of having to flip several states to the Republican column just to be competitive. The businessman will have to try to do all this without the unified support of the Republican party. A key arrow in the quiver of modern US electoral campaigns is microtargeting — cross-referencing voter rolls with records on everything from magazine subscriptions to eBay searches to build a profile of individual voters and deliver a specific message. Trump has instead focused on macromessaging, by dominating the TV news which also gives him free advertising.
Democrats are not oblivious to that fact, indeed Bernie Sanders has built most of his campaign around addressing income inequality. After years of modest growth, a mediocre jobs report in April was a reminder that another slowdown could come even before the impact of the last one is no longer felt.
That could easily eat into Obama’s solid 51 percent approval rating, a metric that currently indicates the electorate is not desperate for a changing of the guard.
Where rivals see him as naive, Trump’s status as a political neophyte might serve him well. It’s harder for Clinton, a former first lady, US senator and secretary of state to argue that she will bring change to Washington.

COTABATO CITY, Philippines – A nine-year old girl was killed while her parents and siblings were hurt in one of the two grenade attacks Saturday night in Shariff Aguak town in Maguindanao.
Captain Jo-ann Petinglay, speaking for the 6th Infantry Division, said the explosions occurred in one of the towns considered by the Commission on Elections as possible “area of concern” in Monday’s polls.
Citing the report from the Army stationed in Shariff Aguak, Petinglay identified the fatality as Puti Mandigan who died on the spot. Petinglay said police and military investigators could not ascertain if the twin blasts were related to the miting de avance of local candidates in Shariff Aguak.
The second explosion came shortly after midnight when residents were asleep and political rallies were over.
Petinglay said the victims were asleep inside their house a few meters from the Ampatuan home when the explosion occurred. Lawless elements, outlawed Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters and private armed groups operate in the area.
A viral Facebook post by a certain Mbaid Nayre first reported that ballots with a pink line code will count votes for Roxas and Robredo. Jimenez expressed his disappointment with the continued spread of false information regarding the allegedly pre-marked ballots.
LUCENA CITY, Philippines — A policeman was wounded when he was hit by a stray bullet after alleged supporters of a mayoral candidate in Mulanay town in Quezon province shot at a vehicle carrying supporters of another candidate on Saturday afternoon, police said on Sunday. Citing witness accounts, Aquino said the gunmen on board motorcycles first slapped the van with their hands then blocked its path. Aquino said initial investigation showed that the passengers of the van were allies of former Mulanay Mayor Prudencio Maxino of the United Nationalist Alliance (UNA), while the gunmen were allegedly from the camp of reelectionist Mayor Tito Ojeda of the Liberal Party (LP).
Malacanang on Sunday shrugged off the treason and espionage charges filed against President Benigno Aquino III by the camp of presidential candidate Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte. The Palace official also reminded the camp of the presidential front-runner that treason, under the Revised Penal Code, can only be committed in times of war where the Philippines is involved. The filing came days after Trillanes accused Duterte of pocketing millions of dollars in undisclosed bank accounts. A cursory look at Commission on Elections figures will show that to be true: 54,363,844 registered voters nationwide, of whom 24,730,013 are aged 18-34 (the age range of millennials, or those born between 1980 and 2000), and of whom the single largest group (7,983,167) is composed of those aged 20-24. Inquirer Super recently spoke with first-time millennial voters who said, among others, that they want a trustworthy and honest leader who represents alternative politics. Elsewhere, in social media, for example, the discussions have been so clangorous as to border on violence. Rivera also issued the reminder that turning out to vote greatly matters: “The more insidious danger lies not in irresponsible tale-telling on social media. Political science professor Antonio Contreras told Inquirer Super that the youth “should not just focus on who they are going to vote, but on what kind of politics they want, and start to do that right now.” The youth make up “46 percent of the electorate,” he pointed out. Millennial voters are burdened by great expectations, including the difficult task of shunning dictatorship despite their never having experienced the terrors of martial law.
Hopefully they have come to realize that history matters, and that the next six years are crucial for a country teetering between development and collapse. The mystique of power as it relates to the church has to do not only with its numbers but also the authority and cohesiveness with which it is able to summon and direct the faithful. At least two reasons come immediately to mind in trying to account for the hesitation of mainline Christian movements to become a power bloc similar to the INC. Domination characterized periods when the church was in a majority situation, as in the time of Constantine up to the close of the Middle Ages, when the gilded throne of the papacy ruled with both the cross and the sword.
Separation was the monastic movement’s reaction to the church’s internal rot and corruption, seeing isolation as a form of purification. The other reason is a theological misunderstanding of Jesus’ oft-quoted remark “Give to Caesar what is Caesar’s, and to God what is God’s.” In western thought, this has been construed by the likes of Martin Luther as the “doctrine of the two swords,” or the dualistic separation of the church and the state.
This means that while the church and the state are separate institutions, both are directly accountable and subject to God’s purposes for them.
This appeal to a higher power and a higher law has been the compelling motive for all sorts of civil disobedience waged by the churches since then.
Today, mainline church traditions are torn between the impulse to be prophetic—that is, to make errant powers accountable and governance more responsive, and the need to stay clear of becoming, once again, a worldly power.
Certainly, the church as a political player needs to discern the difference between prophecy and politicking.


The INC has acquired political clout by judiciously parlaying its command of merely two million votes as a swing vote. Along the same vein, an informed source tells me that Quiboloy’s church in Davao has fielded an army of 2,000 “cyberwarriors” for the candidacy of Rodrigo Duterte. A church that has turned power broker is, in a sense, no more than just another vested interest, to be fought and resisted in much the same way that other vested interests need to be resisted when they ultimately subvert democratic processes. Let me congratulate, too, the 1,731 passers out of the 6,605 takers in the 2015 bar exams, yielding a genteel 26.21-percent passing rate. Special felicitations go to first-placer Rachel Angeli Miranda of the University of the Philippines. Jesus Tambunting, the founder of the micro-small-and-medium-enterprise-focused Planters Development Bank now merged with China Bank. For 2012: philanthropist Washington SyCip who founded and headed SGV, the largest auditing company in the Philippines and in Southeast Asia.
For 2014: the visionary Jaime Augusto Zobel de Ayala, chair of the country’s oldest business conglomerate involved in real estate, banking, telecommunications, water distribution and business process outsourcing, as well as the leader of several educational and charitable causes and foundations. Yes, when businessmen help in education, the young invariably become good citizens, and in the process, consume higher quality food, purchase more homes and appliances, wear better-made clothes, travel more frequently, and use more mobile phones.
When employees and laborers are paid correctly, treated with fairness and respect, and amply rewarded for work done well, they become efficient and loyal, thereby helping their employers advance the interests of their shareholders, customers, community and the nation at large. When farmers are assisted in planting, harvesting and marketing their products, they multiply their resources. When ex-convicts and former rebels are given a chance to work in farms, factories and offices, they reform themselves and become useful members of society, instead of going back to their old ways. We pray that all the officials who will be elected will become “healing,” and not “killing,” servants of our people.
On the eve of Election Day, let us not forget that there is such a thing as an “act of God,” which makes the impossible possible, and surpasses human efforts, perceptions and expectations.
Let me end with a story I heard about a bird who was convinced by a cat to give a feather in exchange for every worm the cat will give.
Dear friends, let us not sell out, let us not settle for compromise with the prowling politician ready to devour us. Lord, help us to level up so that we can rise above our petty quarrels, rivalries and divisions, and move forward. At the last presidential debate, the candidates were asked how they would deal with China’s incursions in the West Philippine Sea. Wherever the mayor talks about it, his audiences greet this verbal bravura with rousing laughter and effusive cheers.
It was this situation that the anti-Semitic writer, Dietrich Eckart, saw in his defeated and demoralized country in the wake of World War I.  He saw Adolf Hitler at a meeting of the German Workers’ Party, and at once he knew this was the man who could lift Germany from its humiliation. All this sounds frighteningly familiar when one views the phenomenal rise of Digong Duterte in Philippine politics. In short, the country is not in crisis—at least not in the way it was in the aftermath of the 1983 assassination of Ninoy Aquino.
Interestingly, it is not the extremely poor who are reacting to these complex issues with great impatience.
At this point, it’s not clear what “sort” of baby will be born tomorrow—whether it’ll be a child savior who’ll deliver on the promise for the future, a demon child who will plunge the country into six years of doom, or a Frankenstein monster cobbled together from sundry parts which will blunder through the difficult future.
Whatever choices we make tomorrow, though, the greatest impact will be felt not by us oldies but by our children and even grandchildren. Beck pointed out that “a 10-year-old girl or boy of today will be 16 by the time the next administration ends, or 25 years old by the end of the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) in 2030. Policies and programs must be put in place targeted to meet the needs of young people—education, employment, good health. And that’s why it’s crucial that as we fill in those empty ovals in our ballots tomorrow, we take care to do so with an eye to the future, to choosing those who will not only have the best programs or make the most ravishing promises, but who also have the capability, the experience and the integrity to forge that brighter future for our children. And many times, when a child is born to a mother who is too young or too old, too sick, or who has too many previous children born too close together, that child will lose a mother.
Each year, an estimated 303,000 women die in pregnancy and childbirth; that’s about 830 each day.
Most of these deaths could be prevented with skilled care before, during and after childbirth.
Fully 99 percent of these deaths occur in developing countries; more than half of the deaths occur in sub-Saharan Africa and nearly one-third occur in South Asia.
Young adolescents are most at risk of complications and death from pregnancy and childbirth.
If 90 percent of the women who wanted to avoid pregnancy were using modern contraceptives, 28 million births could have been prevented in 2015. So the call on this occasion is not just to celebrate the gift and blessings of motherhood. And since we started considering the future of young people which we voters will be determining tomorrow, let’s also consider the future of young women, too many of whom are becoming mothers before they’re even ready for its responsibilities, or even before their bodies are ready for pregnancy.
In this country, before a young person can receive counseling or services from a public health center or clinic, he or she must present written consent from his or her parents. And then, hearing about the rising numbers of teen pregnancies, we throw up our hands and decry how irresponsible these teens are!
The people, in turn, believe in personalities—the messiah, the savior, the harbinger of change—because time and again they are confronted with “choices” that are unsatisfactory.
The lesser evil takes many forms: the radical punisher, the “propoor” technocrat, the motherly, the experienced, the economist, or the heir to the straight path—yet trailed by a long list of “buts” that will only bring frustration and confusion. The electoral system is seen, by default, as a solution, but it can also foster an abusive relationship with the people. Elections can be likened to Roland Barthes’ concept of wrestling: an open-air spectacle of excess.
Because after the votes are cast and the numbers are flashed, the real winner is still the same repressive system that has kept the people in chains for so long. As a counterpower, other mechanisms of change will open up without letting our passions die a natural death in existing institutions of power.
True empowerment in a democratic country lies not in the people’s capacity to surrender their future to the lesser evil because they need a leviathan to liberate them from society’s ills. I’m so tired of seeing people’s opinions on social media defending their presidential candidate. If drivers remain impatient and irresponsible, we can’t expect the traffic to ease and road accidents to decrease. If policemen remain lethargic and just content themselves with watching their bellies get bigger, we can’t expect better security. If doctors remain selective in accepting patients, we can’t expect all sick people to be given immediate attention and medication. If students remain uninterested in learning, we can’t expect the youth to be truly educated. I don’t think the diehard supporters of each of the presidential candidates will become better people after the election. JUST a few days more and we will know our next President, one of the five candidates who slugged it out on the campaign trail—Digong, Grace, Mar, Jojo and Miriam.
Before we go out and cast our votes, perhaps, we can crack jokes about the next Malacanang resident. If Miriam wins, the madlang people will be on their knees begging God “not” to be ready yet for her for another six years. But if God decides “not” to be ready for her in six years, a lot of interesting things will arise in the republic.
She will invite FVR and a socialite friend to a state dinner in Malacanang and then introduce him as the man who stole her presidency in 1992!
Before her term ends, she will have a film made of her life story, detailing all the awards she received all these years. By the end of his term, titles of all state properties—from Bonggao to Basco and Baguio in between—would be claimed by the Binay real estate business.
The senior citizens across the archipelago will have the time of their lives, especially when they celebrate their birthdays. Jojo will do everything he can to duplicate the Ayala urban center of Makati in all corners of the archipelago so that he can tax the rich to give to the poor. Caught in the complex role of administering the entire country, he will have no more time for Makati. If Mar wins, journalists will be an endangered species as they will collapse under the strain of boredom along with their bored reading public. Who will appear at the Malacanang press cons to be bombarded with statistics and data only economists understand? The good news, however, especially for taga-Davao is the major increase in PhilHealth funds available, if only to spite you-know-who.
Ayala and even the global city in Taguig will have to be relegated to lower status compared with Cubao where an ultra-modern city will rise! Mother Susan Roces will do an Imelda taking over the management of the Cultural Center of the Philippines, National Commission for Culture and the Arts, Folk Arts, the damaged Film Center, Metropolitan Theater near Manila’s City Hall and all other centers of culture. Grace will be a hit at international gatherings of heads of states as she will stand out as the youngest, cutest, slenderest, coolest chick among mostly aging male prime ministers and presidents!
She’ll be CNN’s, BBC’s, Al-Jazeera’s favorite head of state to cover, as she looks and sounds terrific on TV. Side by side with President Hillary Clinton as Grace goes to the United States for a state visit, Americans will be able to welcome two Presidents who are Americans on both sides of the plane. Despite all efforts, she will realize that it is impossible to get the machos—Nur, the Moro Islamic Liberation Front and Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters commanders, JoMa and the death squads—to sit at one table! State dinners at the Palace will no longer take place (as the President of the United States and prime minister of Australia will definitely not come for state visits). To make up for his rape joke, Digong will field women with strong leadership in major government offices where corruption is rampant.
If Leila doesn’t make it to the Senate and if she is open to reconciliation, she can take the post at the Bureau of Customs.
Oh yes, Digong will make sure to sign as a decree—the freedom of information bill (one isn’t sure if there will be a Congress that can pass the bill). Finally, we will find out the truth to dispel all the lies constituting a few urban legends. Philippine presidential favorite Rodrigo Duterte has flippantly brushed aside campaign trail allegations of accepting million-dollar gifts, while his rivals have refused to disclose their backers, deepening concerns over business titans’ shadowy grip on politics. The Philippines has one of Asia’s biggest rich-poor divides, with poverty rates remaining stuck in recent years despite strong economic growth, and analysts say one of the reasons for the disparity is the debt that politicians owe their secret backers. Under the nation’s campaign financing laws, there are no caps on how much people or companies can give to candidates, nor are there limits on individual donations.
Duterte has entrenched himself as the clear frontrunner for Monday’s elections by portraying himself as a frugal, anti-establishment politician who is tough enough to take on the elites. But in the final stages of the campaign trail Duterte, who is meant to earn less than $2,000 a month as the mayor of the southern city of Davao, was hit with allegations that millions of dollars had poured into secret bank accounts.
His rivals similarly have felt no obligation to tell voters who their backers are, let alone how much they have been paid by them. Senator Grace Poe, who has been in politics for just three years and fashions herself as a lily-white poster image of change and probity, has been widely rumored to be backed by taipans Eduardo Cojuangco and Ramon Ang. They are in charge of San Miguel Corporation, one of the nation’s biggest conglomerates.
Cojuangco fled on the same plane but returned three years later and kept building his business empire, while also running a political party that today is backing Poe.
When asked by AFP to confirm that Cojuangco and Ang were funding her campaign, Poe spoke only in general terms that there was nothing wrong with taking money from people linked with Marcos. She said her backers and their donations would be revealed after the election, as per the law. Marcos’s son and namesake, who is seeking to cement a remarkable political comeback for the family by being elected vice president on Monday, also referred only to his legal obligations, when asked by AFP in an interview to disclose his backers.
Ferdinand Marcos Jr., whose late father was accused of looting $10 billion from state coffers during his two-decade rule, rejected the notion that he would be beholden to his secret donors. In the Philippines, campaign spending is meant to be capped at 10 pesos per voter, which this year will mean a maximum budget for each presidential candidate equivalent to about $11 million.
In some advanced Western democracies the donations are typically limited to relatively small sums to encourage a larger section of the population to put their representative into office.
However in the Philippines the uncapped donations mean the funding can be provided by big-money donors in hopes of currying favors with an entire government, according to Ronald Mendoza, newly appointed dean of the Ateneo School of Government in Manila. He said said the porous election finance safeguards made the economy vulnerable to being held captive by big-time punters’ personal interests. Historically, Mendoza said this led to monopolies and economic stagnation, since reforms were blocked and competition discouraged to enable campaign benefactors to recoup their investment on the new leader. A mere 308 Filipinos funded the 2010 presidential election, turning them into virtual venture capitalists financing high-risk startups, according to a study by the Manila-based Philippine Centre for Investigative Journalism (PCIJ).
Find out more about your rights as a buyer - opens in a new window or tab and exceptions - opens in a new window or tab. It’s vital that the new government recognises this and delivers on the ambitious housing targets we saw in party manifestos.
They must now deliver on this promise with an ambitious plan for housing in the new Programme for Government.
Pat gave a big part of her life to helping others and spent much of her working life in helping to meet people's housing needs in Wales.
In this role, Clarissa works with housing associations to influence government and other key stakeholders on housing policy issues including reclassification, the Right to Buy and welfare reform.
I am looking forward to joining a team that is already leading the housing sector in Wales and achieving great things.
CHC is focusing on several post-election priorities to ensure that housing remains a key issue in Wales when the new government is in place, and Clarissa will play an integral role in leading on these priorities. The campaign calls on the next Welsh Government to publish an ambitious plan for housing as part of the new Programme for Government which sets out how they will end the housing crisis in Wales.
This has led to rising prices, undermining our economic competitiveness and Wales’ reputation as a destination for investment. Homes for Wales’ celebrity supporters include actor Michael Sheen, Welsh entertainer Max Boyce, comedian Rhod Gilbert, actor and producer Jonny Owen and Bafta-winning actress Vicky McClure.
Rural Housing Enablers play a significant role in ensuring the viability and sustainability of rural communities by overcoming many of the barriers in rural areas, such as identifying appropriate sites and assessing local needs.
Despite getting on the housing ladder during the property boom, she could not progress further when the recession hit. A home is one of the most basic but most vital building blocks of life and there simply aren’t enough affordable homes in Wales for those that need them. The announcement, made by the Minister for Disabled People, Justin Tomlinson MP means that the change will now apply to tenancies in supported accommodation signed from April 2017.
Community Land Trusts, housing co-operatives and alms houses will also be given a one year exception. CHC will continue to provide support to members involved in the review, and we will work with the DWP to ensure that it captures the full picture of what is offered by supported accommodation and that the needs of the devolved nations are captured in any UK-wide policy.
We estimate that around 10,000 claimants will be affected in April 2018, and it is imperative that tenants and landlords entering into a tenancy from this April have clarity and certainty about these changes. Investment in housing boosts the local economy and local services, and this £20m will create 500 new jobs across Wales. It provides tenants with higher levels of support than in general needs housing, and helps tenants with the confidence and know-how to take control of their lives. Furthermore, these additional costs do not necessarily reflect the costs pressures associated with private sector rents, which are what ultimately dictate Local Housing Allowance levels. There are 36,908 supported housing units across the whole country; 22,110 owned and run by housing associations and a further 14,798 by local authorities.
The cap is economically counter-productive, with any reduction in spending on social security likely to be far outstripped in the long-term by presentations to health services and other support agencies. Another Welsh housing association has 48 bedsit units as part of their stock, predominantly housing tenants under the age of 35.
We are concerned about the likely effect it will have on the ability of single people in supported or temporary housing to move onto permanent accommodation at the appropriate time. We have concerns that due to the discretionary and temporary nature of the DHP fund, this will put a significant element of funding for supported housing on an insecure footing and as a consequence could lead to a reduction in the provision of existing services and put new developments at risk at a time when pressure on services is increasing. This will be a particular issue for those who need to live in supported housing on a longer term basis, for example, sheltered housing, retirement housing or adapted housing.
A secure rental income stream alongside continued financial support from Welsh Government is vital for the future viability of Welsh housing associations, and this security means that the sector can continue to build more homes and deliver services in communities across Wales. The campaign brings together those who believe everyone has a right a decent affordable home to call their own and has been set up to ensure that housing is a key political issue in the National Assembly for Wales elections next May. We’ll meet at the Senedd in Cardiff Bay and will then march to the city centre for an event in the Hayes area of the city.
CHC has consistently made the case to Welsh Government to emphasise the importance of investing in the housing association sector.
Investment in housing helps stimulate the economy and provides job and training opportunities for local people, as well as funding new affordable homes. We now need Welsh Government to confirm the rental settlement in Wales that was previously agreed. Extra capital of £900m for Wales will be made available over the next 5 years, and we call on Welsh Government to invest a significant proportion of this capital in Welsh housing. It’s essential that Welsh Government supports the delivery of housing across all tenures, including social housing, to deliver an effective housing market. We are especially concerned about the impact of aligning Housing Benefit with Local Housing Allowance for new social housing tenants. The Welsh Apprentice Challenge is a first for us and provides a real opportunity to showcase some of the amazing young talent working in the sector and the vast opportunities available. Since joining Cartrefi Conwy as a Modern Apprentice, she has had fantastic reviews from colleagues across the business. However, the report clearly illustrates that the economic impact of the sector goes beyond bricks and mortar. This decision applies from the enforcement date of the Housing Regeneration Act (HRA) 2008, with reclassification due to be implemented from early 2016.
This decision should have no bearing on the independence of housing associations in the devolved administrations. Across the UK, we are the most successful partnership of public, private and third sectors.
Figures out today (21 October) reveal that 89% of Welsh Government’s target to provide 10,000 additional affordable homes during this Assembly term have been delivered by Welsh housing associations with more than a year to go. We particularly welcome the recognition of the hard work and achievements of Welsh housing associations in their contribution to the 10,000 target, which comes after our sector made a Housing Supply Delivery pact with Welsh Government earlier this year. In order for the sector to continue to provide this substantial contribution to the economy, employment, training and the availability of homes, the sector needs the continued support of the Welsh Government through its investment in Social Housing Grant. Older people should not be forced to choose between eating or heating their homes during the winter. We’re asking people to support and donate to the cause by posting a #scarfie on social media and encouraging others to do so also.

We reiterate that the actions taken by the government regarding the settlement of disputes in the South China Sea are rules-based, thus we have filed for arbitration under the UNCLOS rules,” Coloma said in a statement. In those meetings, Trillanes made mention that the Philippines cannot enforce coastal protection. Their numbers are of critical importance in the presidential election, and it behooves them to be aware not only of the burning issues but also of the significance of their vote in their country’s progress.
A 22-year-old teacher’s view is heartening: “This kind of politics births new measures to forward the concerns and issues of women, youth, farmers and the like. On one hand it is noteworthy that voters are quite engaged, but on the other it is reprehensible that threats of rape and mayhem issued by a candidate’s supporters have become commonplace.


And millennials should vote for the candidate they want, not the candidate they think will most likely win, or the candidate other people are pushing. But then they are made of encouraging stuff: They embrace diversity, call for LGBT equality, and seek to make the passage of the freedom of information bill a priority. It is not being unrealistic to expect millennials to grasp the necessity of participation in the nation’s collective destiny.
Politicians may rant and rail against church interference in such contentious issues as reproductive health, yet come election time, they all make a beeline for the head of the Iglesia ni Cristo, or to emergent church movements such as that of Apollo Quiboloy and vote-rich Catholic constituencies like El Shaddai. Part of the power of the INC is the perception that it is able to deliver a solid vote because of its practice of bloc voting. The church’s track record as it relates to the state has not been without blemish or lapses into “worldliness.” Through the centuries, the church in its relationship with the world has swung from domination to capitulation, from separation to solidarity. Capitulation characterized periods when the church was weak and in a minority situation, or occupied with survival, as with the Eastern churches in the Arab world. Solidarity occupied the church in periods when repression caused it to be a voice of the voiceless, the last remaining bulwark against abusive regimes, as with recent experiences of authoritarianism here and in Latin America. But in that remark, as the Anabaptist scholar John Howard Yoder now points out, what Jesus cunningly left unsaid was that in truth, what belongs to Caesar also belongs to God. Justice is God’s minimum requirement for governance; the state has been given the power of the sword precisely to be able to execute justice for all. It also accounts for the constant tension between the church and the state as institutions. When the church upholds the norms by which society is meant to be ruled, it is being prophetic. This unduly skews the results and tends to obscure the true picture and pattern of voting behavior in this country.
This perhaps explains the unprecedented level of virulence being spewed out in social media.

A former Inquirer scholar, may she write as succinctly as our staffers and as eruditely as Supreme Court justices.
Let me likewise pay tribute to the “RVR Award” winners who exemplify the life and values of the late Ambassador Ramon V. Lopez, patriarch of the Lopez Group, which espouses the “Power of Good” and integrates the green ecosystem in its many businesses. Pangilinan, chair of several conglomerates involved in telecommunication, digital commerce, electric power, water distribution, tollways, railways and other infrastructures, hospitals and health services, broadcast and print media, and mineral resources, and the unassuming head of the Philippine Business for Social Progress and many other huge foundations, including some that promote sports here and abroad. The RVR Award is unique because it promotes entrepreneurship and nation-building, traits that some people still treat instinctively as mutually exclusive and separate, when in fact they should be, and are, mutually inclusive. When out-of-school youth are trained to sharpen their vocational skills, they get employed and contribute their share in nation-building.
And when young athletes are trained in a world-class environment, they bring honor to our country and to themselves.
They devote a great part of their time, talent and treasures in helping the least, the last and the lost.
Call it coincidence, but all of the sick people whom the first priest prayed over and anointed were healed. When Jesus was lifted up into heaven, He did not “kill” the hopes and dreams of His disciples. 24, 46-53), the Risen Lord challenges His disciples to continue His work of preaching repentance for the forgiveness of sins. More than winning the position, the bigger challenge is to unite a people who are divided by class, creed, ideology, subculture, and religion.
More than a political battle, it is also definitely a battle between good and evil, a battle between light and dark, a battle between the Prince of Peace and the prince of darkness.
More than any human blessing or endorsement, your candidate must be endorsed by, and acceptable to, God!
Let our mothers remind us that amid all the harshness and uncertainties of life, matters of the heart still matter.
It was easy and convenient, until the bird lost all its feathers and could no longer fly, and was devoured by the cat. It makes no difference to them whether he’s joking or he’s serious about this grave policy issue. Except for one thing: The Philippines is not struggling to recover from the desolation of war. We find this in every country that is in the throes of modernity—the sense of drowning in an accumulation of problems beyond the capacity of existing institutions and leaders to solve.  In a flash, the people’s pent-up resentments against the existing order come to a head and find release in the quest for a god who can solve their problems—the traffic jams, the petty criminals, the undisciplined motorists, the insensitive government employee, the abusive cop, the bribe-taking judge, and the thousand and one aggravations that mark their daily lives. We need a president who can form a capable team that will sort out the complex problems of governance.
So in 24 hours, we will all become mothers, “birthing” a new set of public officials, from the highest official of the land to the humblest councilor. We will be voting not just for ourselves but for the children of today, and deciding what their lives will be like beyond even the next six years.
Although I must say that for some women, every time a child is born, a mother is born anew, a mother who, depending on the circumstances, will be not just older but also frailer, wearier, less healthy. Pregnancy and childbirth-related complications are a leading cause of death for girls aged 15-19. It is also to make motherhood safe for mothers, which means making sure that every mother is healthy and free, free to choose the timing and frequency of her pregnancy, and free to access the full range of services before, during and after childbirth.
Let’s think, too, of the future of young men, who’ll be facing the adult responsibility of fatherhood years before they’re ready to be raising a child.
But think of it: If teens are already able to talk about sex with their parents and trust that the information given is full, accurate and not designed to scare them off sex, would they still see the need to consult strangers in a public setting? That means 10 presidents, two people power revolutions, a dictatorship, and decades of corruption, poverty and injustice. In a country where elections are both a blessing and a curse but viewed as the be-all and end-all of things, democratic participation has become centered on shading the ballot. No matter how progressive they may be, they will always be bound by the interests of their class.
When elections are over, the people return to the cycle of poverty and landscape of social injustice that the person they elected had promised to eradicate. The power of choice has slipped from the masses’ hands and become concentrated on the flightless superheroes.
Elections will eventually become a nonsolution if the power of the masses stops where the power of the elected leaders begin. We must avoid the mistakes of the past and cease believing that the act of voting will single-handedly solve our problems. It is in the capacity to control their own destinies, fight for their rights, and refuse to be trapped in other forms of lesser evils. Whoever wins, it shall force us to go out and make a choice, not only for a single day, but even after the ballots are cast.
However, I don’t really believe that having an excellent president would totally provide the solution.
They will probably remain what they are: waiting for progress to happen by itself and complaining about each administration’s failures. I hope they will somehow realize that it’s not only the president who will make their lives better, and that the real power to change the Philippines still lies within each one of us. Even the political opinions in media—especially in the wake of Digong’s offensive jokes and comments—were dead serious. Imagine if her running mate Bongbong wins and God gets ready with her within a week or two? Outside of his family and inner circles, the criteria for hiring Malacanang employees will be height. Like seniors in Makati, cakes will be delivered at their doorstep, courtesy of a Binay bakeshop with outlets in all urban centers. Alas, he will realize Ayala is difficult to replicate outside of Makati since Pinoys continue to seek their fortune in Metro Manila or go abroad.
However, she will have to be prescribed more medicine to make sure her memory cells are intact.
Would he ever change his wardrobe, his facial expressions and his language when he becomes President so he could win over the middle-upper classes, fashionistas, feministas and intelligentsia of this republic?
The ones now in the Office of the Ombudsman and Bureau of Internal Revenue will keep their jobs.
Etta will be head of Ninoy Aquino International Airport and have power over all the airports in the country. Of course, Grace will occupy either the Department of Social Welfare and Development or the Department of Tourism, or return to her post at the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board. A deal will be reached: no cases will be filed against Jojo and he can keep his properties. Not in the first six months of his administration, as he will be busy fulfilling his campaign promises. One investment area to consider whose profits can then be used to feed the political prisoners—build more funeral parlors! If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable. Welsh Liberal Democrat leader, Kirsty Williams, held her seat in Brecon and Radnorshire with a substantial majority. Clarissa has previously worked for the Local Government Association and Hounslow and Birmingham Councils. From businesses to charities, and from Wales to Westminster, there is a clear consensus that we need to be building more homes to satisfy demand, yet we are still not building enough to meet our needs. Other supporting organisations include the Royal College of Nursing, the Church in Wales and Youth Cymru.
They work closely with those involved in the provision of other services and infrastructure within their communities. Homes for Wales speaks with one voice and calls on all politicians to commit to ending the housing crisis and building a stronger Wales. 152,000 20-34 years old still live at home, and 8,596 families have been on the housing waiting list since before the last election. It covers a huge range of housing schemes which help tenants who are experiencing a huge range of problems, including those who are fleeing domestic abuse, suffering from mental health problems, or those who have experienced homelessness. Typically, the LHA is lower in more deprived areas and higher in more affluent parts of the country, meaning that the viability of supported housing in less well-off areas is threatened by the use of LHA to cap financial support. The services are delivered by social landlords who have the specialist knowledge and expertise to support these tenants. We can point to evidence of the impact that the Shared Accommodation Rate in the private rented sector in England has already had on the time young people spend in supported housing.
Supported housing would become unaffordable for those it is designed to assist and would cease to be an option. Continued investment alongside a secure income stream through rent will enable housing associations in Wales to deliver 12,500 homes in the next Assembly term, which is an increase of 25% on the current target. Capping the rent at shared accommodation rate for under 35s will have a significant impact on single young people without children who require access to supported or social housing.
For every one person directly employed by the sector, almost two other jobs are supported in the Welsh economy. This contribution means that the sector is on target to meet the 10,000 affordable homes target for this term of Government set in the Housing Supply Pact between CHC and the Welsh Government.
Our independence allows us to draw in billions of pounds of private finance to provide thousands of affordable homes in the UK, create jobs and stimulate the economy. Our members’ commitment to building and providing homes is clear and this work will continue up until we deliver the target, and beyond.
This means older people often have greater need for heating to function properly and keep safe and healthy.
Throughout the conference, each team will work on a challenge with the help of a mentor from the sector.
And that made the Chinese take an aggressive [stance] and take over our areas like Scarborough Shoal and Spratly Islands.
It is not being overly dramatic to say that they hold the future in their young and vigorous hands.
This nation of more than 100 million will either benefit or suffer from the choice that the millennials will make tomorrow.
Inquirer millennial columnist Kay Rivera wrote recently: “Maybe we do deserve a president who is willing to recognize that rape culture and systematic oppression do exist, and who won’t contribute to that.
In choosing their candidate, they are choosing the one who hews most closely to who they are, or what they want to be.
They consider education important, are environmentally aware, and are disgusted with the corruption around them. But first, critical awareness is required of them, a correct perspective on where we all stand. The actual metrics of this have yet to be empirically demonstrated, but in a time when reality can be virtual, perception is all. This cannot be arrogated to one individual or clique, however, and there are limits to the power of the state. But when it turns into a power broker, using its authority over the flock to deliver a command vote, then it is merely politicking. Three days after Election Day, the vote-counting machines (they are now nicknamed VCM, no longer PCOS) will tell us who the political victors are. In that spirit, let me just congratulate the nonpolitical winners in the family, in the recent bar exams and in the business community.
I hope that beyond merely sponsoring the search, the Jaycees themselves will emulate these twin values of entrepreneurship and nation-building in their own lives and pursuits. On the other hand, again as if by coincidence, all of the sick people whom the second priest prayed over and anointed, died. He drew them to Himself, and led them to a new level of life and discipleship with purpose and mission. May all winners and losers alike be open to peace and reconciliation so that we can all level up, and move forward. Beware, and be very vigilant, for the evil one is excellent in deception, lies and manipulation, and his agents are working very, very hard these days. The elections are about our beloved Philippines and our people, and the future ahead of us.
And let us pray that those who will be proclaimed winners are the ones who were really chosen by the people—and yes, by God Himself. Let us also not forget that there is such a thing as “a mother’s embrace” wherein, win or lose, anyone can find warmth and comfort, be lifted up, protected and shielded from any danger or sin. He will tell the Coast Guard to take him to the middle of the sea, and, from there, he will ride a jet ski to the nearest disputed atoll.
No matter what he says, Mayor Digong seems to fulfill their expectations of the kind of leader the country needs for our desperate times. To make sense of charisma, one has to understand the social context in which a leader attracts throngs of followers. There’s threat of hunger in some parts of the country because of the drought, but food is readily available everywhere else.
Our national situation is more complex today not only because there are more of us, but also because our daily lives have become increasingly shaped not just by innovations in technology, but by shifts in the global economic system and world politics as well. It is they who righteously proclaim their entitlement to something better—better paying jobs, better public transport, more responsive public service, safer neighborhoods, lower taxes, better airports, better hospitals and better schools. Yet, no government will ever succeed unless we, the citizens, can rise above our unexamined fears and emotions—high enough to be able to ask what we can do to help our country or, at least, not add to its problems. Can you imagine the dialogue between parent and a teen asking for permission to talk about sex and receive information from another adult?
When he decided to retire his decades-old jeepney years ago, his belief in the Philippine electoral system died with it. Essentially, it becomes about replacing kings and queens, but never abolishing the monarchy.
The electoral system is still bound by the structures that allow the flourishing of the elite, political dynasties, and patronage politics.
It sees passion—in the ways by which the candidates make their promises, badmouth their opponents, or insult the intelligence of their audiences, never mind if it’s real.
There is a need to extend the strong electoral force that we have now from the ballot to organizations that will turn the thirst for change into a coherent counterpower.
We Filipinos can have a super-perfect leader as our president, but if we choose to remain the same, nothing will happen.
This expense will be charged to an account known as Predeparture Bring Happiness, a presidential prerogative. But as money will pour in Cubao, sorry Capiz folks, your infrastructure and basic needs’ facilities will remain Third World. Side by side with Rizal will be FPJ monuments in every town plaza, especially in the Bangsamoro territories. So also couturiers, flower arrangers, chefs and all those mobilized for elite affairs in the Palace. For the national defense post, Inday S will be posted there to lord it over the generals who will need to undergo gender sensitivity training. And the nuns, who have no qualms dealing with Digong, will be the foot soldiers to deal with erring policemen, barangay officials and tanod. But watch out human rights advocates for it might be a blue Christmas in 2016 (blue as in bruises). When Digong goes dictatorial, red graffiti on the walls will scream—DOWN WITH US-DUTERTE REGIME! You become more accountable to the person who actually financed you,” Mendoza told AFP.
Plaid Cymru won 12 seats, including leader Leanne Wood who defeated Public Services Minister Leighton Andrews in her home constituency of Rhondda.
Investing in housing creates jobs and training and apprenticeship opportunities, as well as regenerating communities and improving people’s lives.
Today’s rally will hear from some of the people who are affected by the housing crisis, and their stories are a familiar theme throughout Wales. A survey of Community Housing Cymru members[1] estimates that 82% of specified accommodation, such as these projects, would be over the LHA cap. Community Housing Cymru members currently provide homes, to 6,440 tenants in this age group, with a further 1,571 living in local authority accommodation. A recent report by Homeless Link highlights that the average length of stay amongst young homeless people has increased by 8.5 months to 16 months. Please commit to bringing staff members and tenants with you to the rally, and invite all your local contacts. They should remember that many people have died and sacrificed so that they can one day exercise their right to vote. Sooner or later they will learn how dreadful it is to bear the crushing outcome of a mistake, and how demanding it is to undo damage where it counts. Since 2010, this award has been sponsored yearly by the Junior Chamber International (Manila Chapter) or Jaycees, the Asian Institute of Management and the Del Rosario family. Let us go to our Blessed Mother and ask for her loving embrace—for ourselves and for our nation.
Thank you for the reminder that this life is not all about the “5 Ps” that can destroy our peace—pera, power, pride, pleasures, and politics! Some areas devastated by Supertyphoon “Yolanda” are still not fully rehabilitated, but much has been done to resettle the displaced communities. We have been able to reasonably adapt to the challenges and opportunities of this changing global reality. But the danger of choosing the lesser evil is the tendency to choose the status quo: safe, convenient, but still detached from the plight of the masses. After the dust has cleared, what remains is the elite web of allies that rallied the politicians to power. These can impoverish us as a people as we need humor to spice up the boring ordinariness and seriousness of everyday life. Imelda will be back in Malacanang with all that was good, true and beautiful of the “golden” years of martial rule, complete with butterfly sleeves and pink parasols!
