A deeper reading of recent earnings reports shows an industry in transition, and perhaps getting ready to get even bigger. Never one to shy away from sexually explicit lyrics in songs such as Cream, Head and I Wanna Be Your Lover, Prince’s 1984 hit Darling Nikki, which refers to masturbation, led to the founding of the Parents Music Resource Centre. The pair were friendly rivals, even performing together with James Brown, and when Jackson courted an edgier image, he invited Prince to record Bad as a duet.

Following the tragic loss of someone important to you, like Prince, sadness can lead to serious depression. Classic depression carries the identity of being perpetually sad and feeling hopeless, of hiding away and moping. Identifying depression as early as possible is important, because the sooner you get help, the easier it will be to return to your normal self. If youa€™re constantly angry or irritable, or if the smallest thing sets you off, you may be depressed. If you find that youa€™re having several glasses of alcohol every night, it may mean that something is going on. Columbia University research shows that we make more than 70 conscious decisions every day. If you, or someone you know, are showing some of these signs, consider taking your concerns to a health-care provider.

SILANG,Cavite—No political bigwigs in vote-rich Cavite were present to welcome presidential aspirant and Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte when he visited the province on Friday. Duterte, who is leading the recent poll surveys, was here a day after reports came out saying the Remulla family, led by incumbent Cavite Gov.
Remulla served as campaign manager of Vice President Jejomar Binay, the standard-bearer of the United Nationalist Alliance. The Inquirer had been trying to reach the Remullas since Thursday but Jesus Crispin, in a text message, said the family has yet to issue a statement. Instead, those who patiently waited for Duterte were hundreds of his supporters from this town.
Also seen in his sortie here were the Pobletes, an old political clan led by its patriarch and former Mayor Clarito Poblete. People filled up the gym of the Silang Central Elementary School, only to catch a glimpse of the tough-talking Duterte.
A group of middle-aged women came ready with their cell phone cameras and monopods as they wrestled against policemen and security personnel from Duterte’s camp. When the helicopter carrying Duterte landed, a throng of supporters, mostly men, ran toward the chopper, hoping to shake his hand or have their pictures taken with him. SILANG, Cavite—Less than three weeks before Election Day, Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte visits the influential Iglesia ni Cristo in Quezon City.
In an ambush interview here, Duterte confirmed he met with INC executive minister Eduardo V. Salceda, a member of the administration’s Liberal Party (LP), had endorsed the presidential bid of former Interior Secretary Manuel “Mar” Roxas II and his running mate Camarines Sur Rep. On Friday, however, Salceda announced that he was withdrawing his support for Roxas to back Sen.
ANTIPOLO CITY—President Benigno Aquino III on Friday said he did not work hard at earning the respect of other nations only for one man to “sever” these diplomatic ties with one or two words.
The US and Australia, including Japan, are the Philippines’ strongest and most influential allies supporting the Aquino administration’s diplomatic and legal tracks in resolving the maritime row with China. The Philippine and US militaries are conducting joint maritime patrols in the South China Sea to emphasize freedom of navigation in the disputed areas. On Thursday, President Aquino told the media that he did not agree with most of Duterte’s statements.
In his campaign speeches in every part of the country, President Aquino always narrates to his audience how at the start of his administration in 2010, he and his Cabinet secretaries each experienced the low regard of foreigners—government officials and businessmen alike—for the Philippines and Filipinos.
One time, he said, Finance Secretary Cesar Purisima was at a global finance ministers’ meeting and no one spoke to him.
In another instance, Interior Secretary Mel Senen Sarmiento was then Calbayog mayor when he was invited to speak at an international gathering.
The President said at the immigration line, Sarmiento noticed the immigration officer stamp the passports of the delegates from Japan and Singapore without any question, and with a warm welcome. When his turn came, Sarmiento said the immigration officer asked the purpose of his visit and for a copy of his invitation to the event.
Duterte lambasted US Ambassador Philip Goldberg and Australian Ambassador Amanda Gorely for supposedly meddling in local politics after the diplomats said rape was not an issue to be joked about.
Duterte did not mention rape-slay victim Jacqueline Hamill, an Australian lay missionary, by name when he recounted an incident in Davao where he showed strong will to end a crisis. His camp now says Duterte’s anti-US stance stemmed from an incident also in Davao City where authorities arrested an American citizen for his alleged involvement in a bombing incident. DAVAO CITY, Philippines—After almost a week of search and rescue operations, the body of a senior military officer who has gone missing after a dive in Davao del Norte was recovered on Friday afternoon.
The military earlier said Dongail was participating in a proficiency dive at the Angel’s Cove in Talikod Island, a known tourist destination, last Saturday.
Resigned Customs commissioner Rufino “Ruffy” Biazon was formally charged before the Sandiganbayan on Friday for malversation, graft and direct bribery for allegedly receiving kickbacks from accused mastermind Janet Lim-Napoles over the pork barrel scam. The Office of the Special Prosecutor filed one count each of malversation, graft and direct bribery against Biazon for his alleged criminal activities as Muntinlupa representative in 2007. Charged with Biazon is his alleged agent former Energy Regulatory Commissioner Zenaida Ducut, a former Pampanga representative who allegedly acted as an agent for Napoles in the House of Representatives. Ducut was said to have toured Napoles in the House of Representatives, according to whistleblower Merlina Sunas. Biazon and his respondents were also charged with violating Section 3(e) of the Anti-Graft and Corrupt Practices Act for causing undue injury to government in coursing his pork barrel funds to the spurious foundation without public bidding, committing evident bad faith, manifest partiality and gross inexcusable negligence.
Biazon was also charged with direct bribery for allegedly receiving P1.95 million from Napoles in exchange for his endorsement of her nongovernment organization to receive his pork barrel funds.
The prosecutors said Biazon endorsed the foundation to the implementing agency which was supposed to implement the project without conducting a public bidding. Biazon chose the implementing agency Technology Resource Center (TRC) to course his PDAF to the bogus foundation. The prosecution also charged TRC officials for failing to verify the qualifications of the bogus foundation—director general Antonio Ortiz, deputy director general Dennis Cunanan, group manager Maria Rosalinda Lacsamana, group manager Francisco Figura, budget officer Consuelo Espiritu, chief accountant Marivic Jover, and internal auditor V and division chief Maurine Dimaranan. For expediting the issuance of the special allotment release orders to release Biazon’s PDAF, budget undersecretary Mario Relampagos was also charged with his staff Rosario Nunez, Marilou Bare, and Lalaine Paule. According to the charge sheet, the bail is set at P30,000 for one count of graft, P40,000 for one count of malversation, and P20,000 for one count of direct bribery. Biazon is the next to be formally charged before the Sandiganbayan from the second batch of lawmakers sued before the Office of the Ombudsman for their alleged involvement in the scheme of diverting their PDAF to ghost projects for kickbacks. The pork charges were already filed before the Sandiganbayan against former Davao del Norte Rep. Revilla and Estrada are detained at the Philippine National Police Custodial Center after their bail petitions were denied, while the elderly Enrile was allowed by the Supreme Court to post bail from hospital detention due to humanitarian considerations. The Office of the Ombudsman on Friday formally brought criminal charges in the Sandiganbayan against former Bureau of Customs chief Ruffy Biazon for allegedly receiving P1.95 million in kickbacks from alleged pork barrel scam mastermind Janet Lim-Napoles when he was still a Muntinlupa City congressman in 2007. In separate complaints, the Ombudsman said Biazon assigned P3 million in his pork barrel allotments to Napoles-owned Philippine Social Development Foundation Inc. Biazon and Ducut were charged with malversation and graft along with Budget Undersecretary Mario Relampagos and his staff members Lalaine Paule, Marilou Bare and Rosario Nunez. Also indicted were Napoles and former TRC executives Arturo Ortiz, Dennis Cunanan and Francisco Figura. ZAMBOANGA CITY—Seven soldiers were wounded in a clash with Abu Sayyaf bandits in Patikul town in Sulu on Friday morning. Major Filemon Tan Jr., spokesperson of Western Mindanao Command, said the Marine soldiers clashed with an Abu Sayyaf Group led by Hairullah Asbang.
ILOILO CITY, Philippines—The Iloilo provincial board on Friday afternoon passed a resolution putting the province under a state of calamity due the effects of the El Nino weather phenomenon.
In a special session, the board unanimously approved the recommendation of The Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (PDRRMC) to declare a calamity state to enable the release of a part of the province’s calamity funds. These towns have been experiencing the effects of the El Nino weather phenomenon which have affected crops and livestock. Jerry Bionat, PDRRMC executive officer, said that under National Disaster Coordinating Council Memorandum Order 4 Series of 1998, a province can be declared a calamity area when two or more municipalities have declared a state of calamity. The provincial agriculture office has reported damage to at least 32,800 hectares of rice lands in the province due to the prolonged dry spell.
Bionat said the calamity declaration will allow the province and municipalities to utilize their calamity funds. The provincial El Nino task force had earlier allocated P33.7-million in preparation for the impact of the prolonged dry spell.
Bionat said the quick response funds will be utilized to augment the funds that were earlier released for water pumps, assistance to livestock and social welfare and health support for farmers.
Now that he has rung the final bell on his boxing career, Manny Pacquiao has enough time—and mental energy—to rethink his latest run for public office. There is little room for optimism when judging his political record, if one is to go by his first stint as an elected official. Pacquiao’s colleagues in the House, perhaps wary of the backlash that can come with criticizing a national icon, would often rush to his defense, citing his hectic training schedule as a reason for his absences.
And the collective joy of a nation over each brutal win may have been enough to deflect the issue a bit.
He will be judged by a public that had tried to dissuade him from embarking on a political career, and, when  he did so anyway, urged him not to seek a higher post, and to protect his sporting legacy by remaining a private person (if that’s at all possible for a world champion). There was a better path for Pacquiao to be of service to his less fortunate countrymen, whose plight, he said, is a constant reminder of where he came from. He could have used his name and his popularity to train the spotlight on causes and advocacies that need a crusader to rally support or intervention their way.
He could have provided the kind of help that does not need an official political title or a big chunk of his personal savings. It’s time Manny Pacquiao buckled down to study what he needs to know and do now that he has fully committed to his senatorial run.
The filing of the case was based most recently on Duterte’s remarks recounting his reaction upon seeing the body of Australian lay missionary Jacqueline Hamill who had been held hostage and then killed in a standoff with troopers. With less than a month left before the voting on May 9, it’s iffy if this case and the outcry raised against the mayor’s recent remarks—and the pattern of offensive words and behavior toward women during the campaign—would have an impact on his chances at the polls. But it’s still worth putting it on record, I believe, that many folk raised their voices and even risked political capital to make themselves heard.
Among the first to issue a public protest against the Davao City mayor was former Negros Occidental governor Lito Coscolluela, who said that “when you insult women with your vile behavior, I only think of my loving mother, my only daughter, my caring wife and my many decent women relatives and friends.
She decried how “a man aspiring (to) the highest office in our land casually made a rape joke amid a very real and tragic situation. The evangelical leaders thus joined Catholic bishops who earlier denounced the candidate’s callous remarks.
While saying they would not demand an apology or any sort of action, the pastors said they were leaving Duterte’s fate up to the judgement of God and the Filipino people.
Though he was writing about the American presidential elections and another candidate—Donald Trump—New York Times columnist David Brooks has words that bear eerie echoes with our own Duterte conundrum. As an avid collector of antiques since the 1970s, it was inevitable that Rosita Arcenas ended up with over 500 pieces of Chinese and Southeast Asian ceramics, mostly excavated in the Philippines. History is a narrative, and the story of these ceramics is the same as those told in the ceramic galleries of the National Museum and by the Roberto Villanueva Collection in the Ayala Museum—stories from artifacts rather than in books and archival manuscripts.
Arab and Chinese traders encountered small seafaring communities by the coasts and waterways of the Philippine archipelago in the 9th century. Traces of this trade are the ceramics that, in our museums, most people find boring because it seems that once you have seen one blue-and-white Ming plate, you have seen them all. In time, and because of their design and utility, these imported ceramics became prestige objects that proclaimed their owner’s wealth and status. Most of the ceramics were found in graves, obviously placed there as furniture the soul could bring to the afterlife. Then there are elegant ewers in the shape of the auspicious double gourd with graceful handles in the form of dragons. Next time you get bored with a museum display of ancient pots, give them a second look and imagine how they must have figured in our prehistory and how they figure in our lives today. This year’s April 23 is a special World Book Day because it commemorates the 400th death anniversary of two of the world’s best and, maybe, most famous writers: William Shakespeare and Miguel de Cervantes. About Shakespeare and Cervantes, there have been many attempts to compare the two since they were contemporaries. Then there are the number of translations of Shakespeare—some 100 languages, according to an article in The Guardian.
Shakespeare seems particularly popular in Asia where his plays are frequently adapted, crossing borders in time and place. These adaptations, including those for the cinema, are a testament to Shakespeare’s being able to capture themes that are timeless and universal, in countless enigmatic, even paradoxical ways.
The Spaniards claim “Don Quixote” has been translated into some 140 languages; I did check for but could not find a Filipino translation. I despair too when I get into planes, seeing non-Filipinos struggling to get on board with bags full of books while the Filipinos stagger in with loads of duty-free liquor and cigarettes.  Sure, maybe the Filipinos, like myself, have the books on Kindle or an iPad, but when I go around the cabin I rarely see my   kababayan  reading books or, for that matter, reading anything.
Even the philosopher Socrates had reservations about writing (which he said would erode memory) and reading (which would lead to students thinking they have knowledge). But the neglect of books and reading is serious in the Philippines, and made even more tragic when you think about how we are a democracy, which means we almost have unlimited access to books. Books create civility, and congeniality.  I love the way we Filipinos are so good at quoting lines from movies, but wouldn’t it be even better if we could quote from literature, our own or the world’s?
The battles to promote book appreciation have to be fought at home, in schools and in communities. The other pitch I want to make is for a group that purchases Filipino children’s books for public schools, day-care centers and other groups. I am part of that unique subpopulation—millennials—who came of age at the turn of the century when huge strides were made in communication and technology. Into this picture comes something that I had never paused to think about prior to my discovery of the Internet: social justice, or the view that all people deserve fair and equitable treatment at all levels—social, economic, political and so forth. It’s through social media that a lot of us are educated about what is “Not Okay,” and this is one of those times. Maybe there’s a lesson here: that it’s also through the discussion of online social justice that we are reminded that the first reaction to prejudice and privilege should be to educate, and not castigate. Last week, Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte, a candidate in the upcoming presidential election, pledged to declare drug-related problems as a national security threat and to allocate two divisions of the Philippine Army and 3,000 policemen to fight it. It seems that harsh penalties are not a deterrent, as despite having some of the harshest penalties for drug offenses in Asia, more and more people are arrested for drug use and possession every year in the Philippines. The unbalanced investment in heavily punitive measures has diverted attention and resources away from ensuring access to evidence-based drug treatment and harm reduction services, such as the provision of needle and syringe programs to prevent the spread of HIV among people who inject drugs. In other parts of the world, governments are turning away from the use of harsh punishment to manage drug-related problems.
It is the devastating consequences of prohibitionist and punitive drug policies that motivated the heads of state of Mexico, Guatemala and Colombia to call for the first Ungass on the world drug problem in almost two decades, which started in New York April 19 and will end today.
With the Ungass, the Philippines was similarly presented with an opportunity to revisit and revise its drug policy and move away from punitive drug laws that are ineffective in addressing drug problems and are detrimental to public health. In this context, it is disconcerting that Duterte is proposing to divert resources toward militarizing the drug enforcement response.
In practice, however, the ritual of the majority of senators—past and present—is to silently question yet loudly accept a dogma that fundamentally frames the Philippines’ external relations standpoint. This is the case no matter how severely harmful these prescriptions may be and which regularly violate Philippine sovereignty and endanger the lives of the Filipino masses in the long run.
Sadly for us, from July 4, 1946, until the present, the Senate only once delivered a majority vote against America’s strategic interests. Hence, most senators tend to lose their strategic focus quite rapidly, because they no longer see the need to provide any type of independent leadership for their people anymore.
The disappointing political deterioration of the Senate is clearly rooted in the backward and underdeveloped national structures and processes of the Philippine capitalist system itself.
Indeed, the current international terrain is a shifting landscape of complex and complicated dynamics. Because these global issues gravely impact upon us all, we are now compelled to pursue an alternative foreign policy framework in response to external challenges. Decisively, today’s highly fluid international environment should push a new generation of senators to urgently and swiftly cochart a path to independently lead our country through a multifaceted mix of global forces. Rasti Delizo is an international affairs analyst and presently the political affairs coordinator of the socialist labor center Bukluran ng Manggagawang Pilipino. She said she agonized over her choice, and concluded that many others agonized over their choices, too. This is a natural consequence of not being able to go beyond personalities to concepts and platforms. What is worse and sadder, though, is the blatant hypocrisy of the noisiest among partisans.
I had written in a previous article that decisions of people are dictated by the number and intensity of their fears, their basic needs and their deepest aspirations. Our partisanship, therefore, is rooted on the dynamics of our fears, our needs and our dreams or aspirations.


I do not understand why we seem forced to intellectualize our reasons for our preferences to others. What is extremely difficult for many is to respect the right of others to choose whoever they please. When we hide our inability to extend respect to those we differ with, we naturally point to the weakness of their choice, either the character or the record of their preferred candidates, or question the very intelligence or integrity of their fellow voter. The Aquino administration’s revised “Philippine Development Plan: 2011-2016” targeted to reduce the country’s poverty incidence. The Philippines has a democratic form of government but it is dominated by the elite—big businessmen and politicians. Among developing countries—such as Kenya, Bangladesh, India, Ghana, Laos, Timor-Leste and the Philippines—where the ratio of public sector employment to total population (public sector employment rate) is less than 2 percent, the poverty incidence is more than 24 percent.
Given the above realities, the Filipino voters should elect a president and political leaders who have the charisma, guts, capability and sincerity to lead the nation in accelerating the development of agriculture to its maximum, sustainable productivity while keeping the current momentum in improving its CPI and GDP growth. In its recommendations, SAGE stated that Dengvaxia (CYD-TDV), the first approved vaccine for dengue, may be considered for use in geographic settings with high endemicity, as indicated by a seroprevalence of approximately 70 percent (range of 50 to 90 percent) or greater in the age group targeted for vaccination. The bottom line is that SAGE believes that introducing dengue vaccination in high transmission settings can have a substantial public health impact especially reducing severe dengue cases and the need for hospitalization.
Health Secretary Janette Garin must have heaved a sigh of relief following the endorsement from the WHO country representative of its seemingly rushed dengue immunization program, which was rolled out amid concerns from various health advocates that I also shared.
And many of these concerns have not really been answered by the SAGE recommendations, which are general statements on how the vaccine’s overall effects could translate into an actual public health benefit. In its preliminary report (final report of its meeting is expected in July 2016), SAGE specifically states that “the target age for routine vaccination should be defined by each country based on an assessment of dengue endemicity and programmatic feasibility of targeting particular ages.
In all these reports (including the last one which was funded by the vaccine manufacturer), the seroprevalences were not age-stratified and all seroprevalences were less than 90 percent but more than 50 percent.
I hope that the DOH has, as its basis for the decision to immediately execute the dengue vaccination program, updated seroprevalence data on dengue in the regions where the program is being implemented. Secretary Garin should allocate part of the DOH’s budget for the dengue control program in conducting national and regional studies that can fill in the blinding gaps on vital epidemiological information that are needed to guide her and her department before making crucial decisions on cost-effective programs.
Unless we have comprehensive and continually updated data on national and regional age-stratified seroprevalence rates and sex distribution data, targeting specific segments of the populations—wherein interventions such as a dengue immunization program would be most cost-effective—is impossible to make. Speaking of cost effectiveness, I’m sure the SAGE could also recommend an ideal price of the three-dosed vaccination so it could be considered cost-effective or worth the money the government will spend for it. If the SAGE-recommended cost is lower than the cost at which DOH got it from the vaccine manufacturer (Sanofi Pasteur), they should renegotiate for a lower price of the vaccine to match or preferably be lower than the ceiling cost recommended by the expert body.
During the DOH-WHO press conference on Monday this week, Secretary Garin said: “We know there will be hindrances when it comes to implementing (health) programs, especially if it is a good program.
I found the statement a little odd, seemingly insinuating that expressions of valid concerns by health advocates are being taken as mere flippant objections to prevent the DOH from implementing a good program. In the previous column, we discussed the different medications that help HF patients improve their survival rate and quality of life. Despite improvement in survival rates with current therapies, patients with HF have a poor prognosis. In the previous article, we discussed how a complex hormone system called the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS) activates several mechanisms to compensate for the failing heart. A novel strategy for treating HF is sacubitril-valsartan which enhances the heart’s protective neurohormonal system (NP system) while simultaneously suppressing the harmful system (RAAS).
Some patients with HF have a life-threatening abnormal heart rhythm which can happen suddenly and unexpectedly.
Eat a healthy diet that includes fruits and vegetables, whole grains, fat-free or low-fat dairy products and lean proteins. Moderate aerobic activity, such as walking, helps keep the rest of your body healthy and conditioned, reducing the demands on your heart muscle in the long run.
Follow up with your doctor regularly for adjustment of the doses of your drugs to reach the recommended target doses. It is imperative to educate patients and family members about the expected benefits of following the recommended treatment.
The children from these areas where there is low vaccination rates will grow up most susceptible to contracting diseases like meningitis, particularly its bacterial form that can strike quickly and kills within hours.
Those who are able to survive often live with serious complications, such as amputations, scarring and brain damage.
Bravo said: “This is why there should be greater vaccine information and campaigns to raise people’s awareness and knowledge on vaccines.
As the World Meningitis Day is observed tomorrow, various organizations around the world will initiate activities to highlight the theme, “24 Hours—Time to Act!,” which stresses that 24 hours can mean the difference between life and death for anyone affected by meningitis. It should be remembered that the onset of symptoms of meningitis is typically sudden and strongly resembles the flu—headache, fever, nausea and fatigue. Bravo stressed: “Meningitis affects the brain that controls all our actions, behavior and all bodily functions. Real estate firm Avida Land has launched its latest residential project in Vertis North, the 46-hectare property, including Trinoma, expected to emerge as the new central business and lifestyle district of Quezon City. Vertis North strategically intersects major transit points, specifically, Edsa, North Avenue, Agham Road and Quezon Avenue. Avida Towers Sola, which has 31 residential stories, will occupy part of this master-planned development of Ayala Land Inc.
Adjacent to its predecessor,  Avida Towers Sola will offer units facing Vertis North Gardens, the 2-hectare park made of wide lawns and greenery and features sloped, terraced gardens for public events.
Ayala Land’s commitment to sustainable living is reflected in Vertis North innovations like Stormwater Management System, an integrated basement parking facility for more pedestrian-friendly and highly walkable district and the landscaped greens of Vertis North Gardens.
To prevent flooding, integrated within the gardens’ design are water detention facilities such as two detention ponds and infiltration stripes lining the streets and two detention ponds. On its other side, Avida Towers Sola faces Edsa and provides residents with the convenience and accessibility of this main thoroughfare. The first tower will have 1,004 residences in a mix of studio, one-bedroom and right-sized two-bedroom, and three-bedroom units.
Aside from these new layout options, residents will enjoy amenities like a lap pool, kiddie pool, indoor gym and a clubhouse with a large function hall for as much as 150 guests. Construction of cleared areas of the estate continues steadily with land development now above 90-percent completion. Just above the mall property will be a three-tower office development, the Vertis North Corporate Center, geared toward BPO locators. With a little over two weeks to go before the national and local elections, property analysts have weighed in on how each of the Presidential candidates will affect the real estate sector. Monique Cornelio-Pronove, CEO of Pronove Tai International Property Consultants, asserted: “Regardless who among them wins, the real estate market will continue its upward trajectory as the economic fundamentals of the country remain strong. Palafox added: “We hope and pray the next President will have visionary leadership, strong political will, will listen and apply good planning, good design, and good governance. He attended local meetings and was occasionally known to surprise locals by knocking on their door in keeping with the group’s tradition of door-to-door preaching.

A 2013 study published in the journal JAMA Psychiatry reported that 54% of people of depression reported feeling hostile, grumpy, argumentative, foul-tempered, or angry.

They don’t tolerate anyone or anything threatening their pack, and will protect them to the death. If you’re not an assertive and authoritative person, you might find yourself playing second fiddle to your pooch. This dog breed is always on alert, often barking at things their owners would rather they ignore. Originally bred to defend cattle from predators and thieves, the Komodor has transferred that instinct to its human companions.
On one hand they are supremely loyal to their human companions (in some cases they prefer people to other pooches), and can be giant softies when it comes to their pack.

Aquino at presidential aspirant Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte, who said that should he be elected president, he would not hesitate to cut ties with the United States and Australia for meddling in local politics. And also, so that we can have a reliable and good friend and ally so that when we are bullied by a giant, we have a partner who is a giant as well,” President Aquino said in Filipino. Finally, at the end of the meeting, someone approached Purisima, who thought the man would discuss Philippine affairs with him. Aquino said that his fellow leaders in Southeast Asia did not immediately warm up to him in the first years of his presidency as well. Ezra Balagtey, public information officer of the military’s Eastern Mindanao Command, said the body of Maj. He resigned as Customs commissioner in 2013 after the Department of Justice included him in the pork barrel scam complaint. No, it seems too much to ask that he back out of the Senate race, especially because his candidacy is one of his two main reasons for quitting the sport, the other being his decision to give in to his family’s wish that he hang up his gloves.
It’s a statement we hope he will repeat even more, this time in a private setting, to himself. His absences during sessions at the House of Representatives provide more than ample fuel for critics to question how well he served his constituents in Sarangani province in the chamber.
He is busy bringing honor to the country, they would say, selling the premise that the glory he earned in the boxing ring was sufficient substitute for his lack of activity as a legislator—blows for laws, as it were.
This time, a successful run for a Senate seat will be put under heavy scrutiny, the likes of which he may be completely unaware. Because of how strongly he has been warned that he is unfit for a Senate seat, he cannot hope to do a Lito Lapid—that is to say, ill-equipped, incoherent, a veritable doorstop—during his term.
But there are those who will still judge him by his declaration of wanting to serve the Filipino public.
And it isn’t by being, in his promoter’s words, a “one-man social service department” shelling out dole to the long queue constantly making a beeline for his house. He could have used the international goodwill he gained as a boxing icon to seek foreign assistance to help ease the conditions of the country’s poorest sectors.
Forget the rounds, the purses, the prizes, the belts, the pay-per-view-shares, the big-name opponents.
According to the mayor, seeing how lovely—“like a movie actress”—Hamill was, he was angered not just because she had been gang-raped by the prisoners but also because “she was so beautiful” and he rued that they should have let the mayor (himself) have a go first.
Many of them are victims of economic dislocation and it is hard to fault them for seeking a change, of course, even if it is simplistic and ignorant. Part of our nation’s story comes from old pots that illustrate trade and civilization in these islands long before the Spanish conquest in the 16th century.
But if you take the time to give these ceramics a second look you will realize that the high-fired imported ceramics are different from low-fired Philippine earthenware; these are impermeable, glazed, ornamented with iron spots or with freely painted auspicious symbols in Chinese or Tibetan characters, as well as with images of pine, prunus, peach, twin, fish, twin Mandarin ducks, dragon chasing pearl, phoenix, and frolicking Fu dogs. These were used as water droppers on scholars’ tables where water was added to an ink stone on which ink sticks were ground to produce the ink for Chinese calligraphy. They come in three types: white qingbai glaze, white qingbai glaze with brown iron spots, or white qingbai glaze painted with floral sprays in cobalt blue.
Of course, Shakespeare comes out looking like the winner because he was so prolific, with 37 plays and 154 sonnets in all to his name. Dulaang UP recently staged one such adaptation of “King Lear,” which, it turns out, seems to have a particular appeal to Asians; one particularly spectacular version was staged in Melbourne with actors from several Asian countries speaking their parts in Chinese, Bahasa Indonesia and Japanese.
The narrative’s theme of lofty idealism is universal, too, so much so that in English we now have words like “quixotic” (which means to be unrealistic and impractical) and “chasing windmills,” referring to some people’s pursuit of a daunting personal cause, which is seen by many as futile, yet is respected because it is so unrelenting.
Alas, Cervantes’ great novel is perhaps much too long to read, and the number of people who have read it cover to cover is probably going to dwindle even more in this age of SMS (short message service), Twitter and Facebook postings. The British have another World Book Day on March 3 and, strangely, call April 23 World Book Night, which as you might imagine will be celebrated with extra enthusiasm this year. All over the world, there’s ambivalence about books.  Just think of the connotations of words like “bookworm” and “bookish,” suggesting that people who read are too detached from the world, impractical and idealistic like Don Quixote.
Dictators—secular, political, religious—were more fearful of the printed word as giving people dangerous ideas.  Just look at how books were censored, even burned. Our problem lies with the environments we have, at home and in school, where the libraries are limited, and where books are associated with assignments that are difficult or boring, or both.
The rather dismal choices we have in this year’s elections are due, in part, to our inability to see beyond our archipelago, even with millions of Filipinos living overseas (and who, working hard all day, have little time for books or, if they do, would have other budgetary priorities). But outlets like Books for Less have gone a long way toward creating more book-friendly homes. The unrepeatable phenomenon of experiencing life without and then with the Internet defined a huge shift in our childhoods; thus on some level we grew up more educated by the Internet than by our schools. It’s become a part of how we use the Internet; we express indignation at the mistreatment of others, we share articles on great strides against racism or sexism or other types of prejudice.
People with and without political agenda or preferred candidates are coming out of the woodwork to say that rape jokes are unacceptable. Whatever our feelings about the presidential candidates, or their flaws and their achievements relative to each other’s, it ought at least to be clear that a rape joke by itself is nonnegotiably a bad thing.
Clearly the rape joke (and whatever it might represent about the candidate) is just one among many factors to consider in candidate selection.
Regardless of who wins on Election Day, rape culture and the structures that keep it in place, will still exist afterwards, and what we do and say during this time has power beyond the elections and beyond the next presidential term.
This lack of investment in health services means that those who are looking for help with problems relating to their drug use cannot get it.
After a century of prohibitionist drug policies, with vast resources poured into law and military enforcement and increasingly severe punishments imposed for drug use and supply, the world is very far from achieving the “drug-free world” envisaged by the last UN General Assembly Special Session (Ungass) on the world drug problem in 1998. The Ungass was envisaged as a critical juncture to evaluate the effectiveness of existing drug policies and to debate alternative strategies that could achieve better outcomes for the health and welfare of humankind—the objective of the international drug treaties. It should review its laws criminalizing people who use drugs and disproportionately punishing low-level offenders, and create new policies that allow evidence-based harm reduction services such as needle-and-syringe exchange programs. Such action risks escalating violence, at great cost to human life and the security of communities, with virtually no chance of success in even suppressing drug markets. Aside from its high-profile public investigations “in aid of legislation,” the Senate can effectively make or break the Philippine state’s position on a wide range of internationally focused economic, political and security questions. Thus, the basic attitude of Philippine foreign policy is to always bow to the global dictates of the United States and to never oppose its self-serving policy impositions on us. And because our foreign policy logic is stuck in a neo-Cold War syndrome, our traditional political elites cannot seem to conduct Philippine diplomacy beyond a 20th-century mindset.
Combined with the support of a strong anti-US-bases mass movement at the time, 12 senators finally abrogated the RP-US Military Bases Agreement on Sept. This is one major factor why our senators cannot seem to appreciate the formal powers of sovereignty which the Senate officially still wields, and that is vested within their collective leadership.
Almost the entire Philippine state’s economic-political-security setup is directly plugged into, and fully dependent on, a global capitalist system dominated by a bloc of imperialist powers led by the United States. Thus, a new external relations agenda should be truly independent, progressively sovereign, democratically cooperative, and internationalist in character. The urgency of formulating a forward-looking foreign policy as a frontline weapon to protect our people’s collective interests from potential external threats and dangers cannot be overstated. In that post, she said that if elections were held today, she would vote for a particular presidential candidate.
And she then challenged others to disparage her choice if they were willing for their choices to be disparaged as well.
We devolve to choosing from character preferences instead of higher visions—because there is a lack of solid virtues and an absence of visions to compare. In that dimension of partisan politics, I think it has become the norm to simply shoot one’s mouth off in defense of his or her choice as though the words that come out are intelligent or objective. We are not elevating the good and noble to dominate our value system, to be the primary guides for decision-making. A little wrong is the beginning of a bigger wrong, the angry thought the beginning of a violent act, the insult a preface for a slap. That same democracy has incorporated a system of systemic change through elections, and elections via popular choice. There is nothing that changes this principle substantially except substantial changes in fear, need and aspiration levels. The effort focuses on three regions that have particularly high transmission,” said WHO country representative Gundo Weiler during a press briefing at the Department of Health (DOH). The final decision whether a dengue vaccination program should be implemented or not must be based on country- and region-specific factors, as guided by pertinent and updated research data.
But since the effectiveness and safety of the vaccine are linked to specific seroprevalence data, we must make sure that we have reliable updated data per region and this must be age-stratified.
If these were the bases for the dengue immunization program, then it should have been limited to the 11-14 years age group based on the SAGE recommendations. If the decision was merely based on assumptions of high endemicity or transmission rates,  or data from the old studies, this may not be a good idea.
I’m sure once the other vaccines that are already in late-stage clinical development become available, the prices of the dengue vaccine will dramatically drop. I am giving the good secretary the benefit of a doubt, and I’m pretending not to have read any news report stating that. Unfortunately, these temporary compensatory measures eventually become detrimental to the patient.
It amplifies the natural defense response of the heart, while inhibiting the harmful effects of long-term RAAS stimulation—ultimately leading to reduced strain on the cardiovascular system.
Alcohol can interact with your medication, weaken your heart muscle and increase your risk of abnormal heart rhythms. Stress or anxiety makes your heart beat faster, makes you breathe more heavily and your blood pressure to go up. Older patients or patients with kidney disease may require more frequent visits and laboratory monitoring during dose titration.
Taking diuretics earlier in the day may decrease the need to urinate as often during the night and allow you to get more sleep. It is important to consult your doctor before adding any medicine to your current treatment. It should come with understanding the potential effects on increased survival, improved functional status and quality of life. These children, noted the agency, are more susceptible to various diseases that could result in long-term illness, serious disability and even death. Lulu Bravo of the University of the Philippines Manila’s Pediatric Infectious and Tropical Diseases said: “Vaccines are meant to protect the children who are most vulnerable from getting severe diseases. Bacterial meningitis (as well as those caused by virus and fungi) causes the inflammation of the brain and spinal cord as well as widespread infection throughout the body.
Moreover, bacterial meningitis could also bring death in 10 to 15 percent of cases even when appropriate antibiotic therapy is used. We should also intensify our campaign to teach health professionals how to encourage parents to get their children vaccinated.


As the infection progresses over the course of just a few hours, symptoms like neck and intense headache, extreme fatigue, sensitivity to light, and often a fairly distinct rash of either tiny dots or big blotches ensue. Damage to the brain due to meningitis would likely cause severe harm and disabilities when treatment becomes inadequate or too late. The gardens will be similar to world-class central parks and offer breathing space in the midst of the district.
Utilities, road networks and an innovative Stormwater Management System that runs throughout the district will be completed by December. An open-air interconnection with lush landscaping and water feature is designed to traverse the entire mall.
The hotel will have 438 guest rooms and will be completed in time with the district’s gardens and underground parking in 2017. Not one of the presidential candidates highlighted the importance of the housing sector in their platforms.
The current administration leaves behind a healthy fiscal reserve that the new administration must now spend to build more roads, rail and improve as well as add more airports and ports around the country. The lyrics showed the singer’s visionary approach to the then little used medium but it was one which he was to later reject.
But that’s mostly because I was watching it in 3D and the effects were irritating myA retinas.
I didn’t cry upon hearing the news that Robin Williams died as much as I cried during that one scene from Patch Adams. You just dona€™t feel like shopping or cooking and so you go with whatever is easier (and usually not that good for you). You may appear aloof, cold, or distant, in turn, pushing away the people that love you and want to help you.
Ita€™s important to remember that alcohol, especially that second or third drink, can amplify negative emotions a€“ anger, anxiety, aggressiveness, and greater depression. The feeling of human companionship deprivation may drive someone who is depressed to online worlds and interactions where they can escape from their thoughts and feelings. Even if your grooming habits were basic, they may disappear when you are suffering from depression. While some of us are looking for a playful pal, others want a dog that will vigilantly guard against the outside world. Incredibly bright and in need of constant entertainment, the Puli is the perfect little protector for the active family on the go.
While docile and loving when it comes to their owners, they have a zero tolerance policy for intruders or threats.
It is unrealistic to think we can control our future or even know what will happen next, but yet we try, which sets us up for failure. Two of them, he said, even lectured him on what the Philippines should do to grow and develop.
No longer just a representative of a district, he will be answerable to a much larger, much more demanding, constituency that may not have forgotten his lamentable slur on same-sex relationships.
If the case prospers and gets a favorable hearing, Duterte may end up, if not yet in hell, then at least behind cold, steel prison bars. Now well-curated in the University of San Carlos Museum in Cebu, the ceramics have become tangible proof of a lively maritime trade between the Philippines and its neighbors from the 11th through the 19th centuries.
Many of these pots are older than the name “Filipinas” such that the pioneering prehistorian H. Trade was conducted through barter; silk, iron, parasols, glass and porcelain brought by the Chinese were exchanged for the Filipinos’ pearls, tortoise shell, yellow wax, betel nut, abaca fabric, cotton and provisions of fresh water, meat, vegetable and fruit for their onward journey. These images meant something to the Chinese; what did they come to mean to the early Filipinos? These 14th-century Yuan “balimbing jarlets” that come in plain white  qingbai  glaze, or white with brown iron spots, or with floral designs in cobalt blue or underglaze red, are significant because these were not found in China.
What ancient Filipinos used these jarlets and water droppers for, aside from grave furniture, remains a mystery. Then I’ll go into the importance of World Book Day to the Philippines, and close with an appeal to help make this year’s World Book Day more meaningful.
I’m elated seeing our book fairs packed with people, but I worry, too when my kids beg to go to National Bookstore or Powerbooks only to end up buying everything except books. Books are the lifelines of faculty members, and the loss of their private libraries was devastating.  Fortunately, Anvil and the university presses of Ateneo de Manila, De La Salle and the University of Santo Tomas have teamed up for a Sagip Guro project that offers books at great discounts for faculty members affected by the fires. It was the great “Equalizer”: For the first time, concepts that were previously confined to academic circles and dry social science treatises were widely available to any 13-year-old with a modem. Some of them are your garden-variety mudslinging, but some of them stem from the genuine need to point out that there is such a thing as rape culture, and that the Philippines in the 21st century needs to be able to recognize that such a thing exists.
Whether it plays any substantial part in swaying votes one way or another remains to be seen. 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. Despite already significant investment of state resources in law enforcement for police to conduct raids, arrests and seizures to tackle drugs, a violent criminal market continues to grow in the Philippines. Possession of drugs alone can lead to a sentence of life imprisonment, while the maximum sentence for homicide is 17 years imprisonment. The Philippines now has a health crisis on its hands, with the world’s second highest rate of HIV prevalence among people who inject drugs. The reality is that even in countries that have meted out the most excessive brutality in an attempt to eliminate drugs—from Thailand’s 2003 “war on drugs” (which resulted in 2,800 people dead from extrajudicial killings in the first three months) to Mexico’s militarization of its drug war in 2006 (which provoked outbreaks of violence with drug cartels leading to over 164,000 homicide victims between 2007 and 2014)—no claim of success in even suppressing drug markets, least of all eliminating them, can be made. In the lead-up to the Ungass, many governments including the United States, Uruguay and Colombia, called for a shift in drug policies from a focus on law enforcement toward public health. This is the lesson learned by governments around the world that have attempted to fight drug problems with violence and punishment. Partly because they are not guided by any sovereign perspective linked to a progressive foreign policy agenda, many senators lack a broad world view on the changing international system. This blend of principles should help advance a more liberating and nonchauvinistic foreign policy paradigm for our people amid the current international conflicts and regional tensions buffeting our country. It should also advance a set of internationalist solidarity initiatives to help guide the world’s oppressed majority toward a humanity-oriented global project that is rights-based, people-centered, and socially-just. She knew that naming the person she was most likely to vote for (she did say her decision was not final) would create a controversy even among her own friends and network of social media allies. Noisy partisans would become the laughing stock of an audience that is truly intelligent and objective. We then try to justify our preferences with all sorts of reasons, usually the good traits or deeds of our choices, which is what it should be, but we cannot help but put down the other candidates. Even if the candidates who present themselves to us all have their dark secrets, so have we.
If we explain why we prefer someone to another person who prefers another, our explanation will not be understood, or respected—just as theirs will not be to us either. Unusual choices, the kind that surprises others, are built on unusual emotional and material conditions. And the hypocrites are the last ones to recognize their hypocrisy as they are too busy pointing to the wrongs of weaknesses of others. And the foremost consideration of the appointees is the vested interests of their sponsors. Cambodia’s small farmers, or those with less than two hectares per household, account for most of private sector activity.
I tried to look for these data in the literatures and could not find any published updated reports.
But in the first place, are these data valid bases considering that they’re not updated (6-10 years old) and they’re not age-stratified? Smoking damages the blood vessels, elevates the blood pressure (BP), reduces the amount of oxygen in your blood and makes your heart beat faster. Too much sodium contributes to water retention, which makes your heart work harder and causes shortness of breath and swollen legs, ankles and feet. Sudden discontinuation of prescribed medications by the patient is discouraged as this may cause patients’ breathlessness, as well as other symptoms to return.
Even with the advantage of modern medicine and powerful antibiotics, it has a high fatality rate. If left untreated, a person with meningitis, especially the one caused by bacteria, may become delirious, sleepy and eventually slip into a coma.
However prevention through vaccination is available and has been shown to be safe and effective so there is no reason not to get the vaccine.
The two-bedroom units also come with a multipassenger toilet and bath, allowing simultaneous use of the facilities. For entertainment, the mall boasts of several cinemas including a 400-seater cinema with a balcony fitted with recliner seats. Most of the rhetoric focused on public infrastructure, technology, peace and order and employment but there were no specific mention of an integrated, compelling and institutional housing plan that can change the industry for the better,” lamented Enrique M. We have a robust young population with a median age of 25 years that has the capacity to spend, and this drives the retail market.
The property indicators and demand drivers, specifically, the BPO industry and the remittances coming from overseas Filipinos, will continue to flow and pump prime the consumer industries and positively influence the growth of new investments in the country. The founder of the group heard her 12-year-old daughter listening to the song and pressed for music labels to put Parental Advisory stickers on their releases 2. Dear Zachary: A Letter to a Son About His Father is enough to cause permanent blindness from all the fluid leaking out of your ocular cavities. Alcohol abuse does not necessarily mean alcoholism or addiction, but it may be another sign that you are suffering from depression. In fact, in a 2014 survey of more than 10,000 people, 61% who had poor oral health reported being depressed. They will fight to the death to guard their family, and anyone who can handle these bright dogs will find a loving and loyal pack member.
People will demand to see him in action during televised inquiries mounted in aid of legislation. Or will he be shown up as a mere carnival barker peddling public service dreams as currency for political clout?
Otley Beyer defined the 10th to early 16th centuries as a period different from the earlier Stone Age and Iron Age. Some high-fired plates and bowls, ringing like a bell when flicked with a finger, came to be used for rituals because they were believed to possess magic qualities. They were found only in archeological sites in the Philippines and parts of Indonesia, which suggests that they were made specially for export to the Southeast Asian market. A simpler and smaller version of these can be seen in Chinese restaurants today, as droppers for soy sauce or vinegar. But old habits die hard, and in the 21st century Filipinos still practice a form of pabaon by throwing flowers into the grave of loved ones at the time of burial; or by leaving a cut rosary, paper currency, or other keepsakes in the coffin to accompany the dead in the afterlife. Well, they’ll have Shakespeare readings in that grand institution that is the British Library, which presumably will stay open through the night. You can also buy books from them with specific instructions on what or which institution or department you want the book for. Maybe it’s also a function of the way social media allows us to explore stories that are not our own. As such, people who had never paused to think about rape jokes before are forced to confront the idea that words have power: that the trivialization of rape is both an effect of and a contributor to the objectification of women. To me however it has come out as a sort of felix culpa, a happy fault—an unfortunate occurrence bearing some semblance of good fruit. But, regardless of who wins, maybe change is coming—and maybe it starts with us and with our keyboards, and our capacity to educate ourselves and others. These measures have led to the highest prison overcrowding rates (over 700 percent in some regions) in Southeast Asia.
Year after year, the UN Office on Drugs and Crime reports expanding and diversifying drug markets, especially for methamphetamine in Southeast and East Asia.
And thus, they readily lose sight of any positive potential which the Philippines can yet contribute to the greater welfare of the global order today. And what is more important is the good they have and the good they can do, from their past performance as proof of what they are most predisposed to do.
And our preferences for particular candidates are grounded on this fundamental behavioral platform. It is simply because the context of our choices are intimately and directly related to an inner context of fears, needs and wishes. In an election, there is no demand that we understand in the same way, feel in the same way, and vote for the same candidates. It is so much easier to resent and insult others who do not agree with us, so much easier to condemn the weaknesses of candidates we do not prefer, and so hard to simply respect our differences.
Every new administration makes thousands of elite-backed appointments; this explains the lack of continuity in our national directions and policies, which weakens our institutions and makes them more vulnerable to patronage and corruption. They are provided with technical assistance and training to better prepare them to adapt to climate change; water-use efficiency is enhanced to protect their livelihood and sustain food security. There were only four seroprevalence reports published in 2005, 2006, 2009 and 2010 with the actual studies done several years earlier. Work, travel and day-to-day social and leisure activities are difficult for HF patients with breathlessness and extreme fatigue. An ICD is a small device that can give the heart electric pulses or shocks to get the heart rhythm back to normal. Changes in BP or heart rate may be more pronounced in these patients with changes in position.

I will vote for the one who has the heart and the skills to address (national) issues,” said Palafox. He turned down the offer to duet with Michael Jackson on Bad The pair were friendly rivals, even performing together with James Brown, and when Jackson courted an edgier image, he invited Prince to record Bad as a duet.

Studies show that people with depression are four times more likely to suffer from disabling neck and lower back pain. Surprisingly, the Shepherd is actually a very mellow breed — until their pack is threatened, that is.
Dennis Batangan (0917-5045272) if you want to help.  I’ve been helping them with their campaign with a request to allocate books for the lumad (indigenous people in Mindanao) communities in evacuation centers. For the first time, through blogging platforms and online communities, a teenager growing up in a middle-class Filipino household could have an idea of what it was like to be black in the middle of a white American suburb, or to be a lesbian afraid to come out to her conservative Christian family, or to be poor, or to be a rape victim just beginning to recover from her trauma.
In a political season where the discussion on the rights of women and other marginalized groups has often been pushed to the back burner, suddenly the topic is on everyone’s lips and their Facebook feeds. Whatever else the rape joke has turned out to be, it’s turned out to be a lesson on the power of words and of the Internet, and how we wield them. Paiboon Khumchaya, publicly acknowledged the goal of eradicating drugs as counterproductive, leading only to systemic police corruption, and prisons overcrowded with low-level drug offenders from impoverished backgrounds. For the Philippines to go against this trend is to perpetuate the devastating consequences of unjust and ineffective drug policies, and the waste of already scarce resources, without improving outcomes for the health and security of communities. The debate then moves to what is the graver sin, killing or stealing, lying or adultery, stupidity or not caring enough. Because the good they are and the good they can do must be the basis of our choice—the good and not the nonexistent lesser evil. Hence, Cambodia has earned the reputation of being one of the world’s best performers when it comes to poverty reduction. We have the confidence of the international community and the challenges we face on infrastructure provides a lot of opportunity for investments. You know, I never thought a documentary about a senior citizens chorusA singing Coldplay would affect me like that.
Headaches and stomachaches might become more noticeable, as well as experiencing a greater sensitivity to pain in general. Furthermore, high levels of stress and depression can make it tough to lose weight or stick to diets.
I visited one such center in Davao and was touched by how, amid the difficult conditions, the children have been able to continue studying, but struggling with very few books. Through the experience of other people’s stories and exposure to a variety of ideas and counterideas, we are more able to recognize privilege and the existence of systematic inequality across cultures. There might be Internet trolls who thumb their noses up at the women’s rights movement and ask what all the fuss is about, but across the nation there are people looking at their phones and computer screens slowly digesting the idea that all along, women have had to live with some things that fundamentally have never been an obstacle to men.
It is often those who are already poor and vulnerable that suffer most from these punitive policies. And if we as a people cannot go nearer towards this, then our popular choices will bring us regret after regret.
Incidentally, some people may experience the opposite a€“ they may lose a lot of weight as depression can squash their appetite.
For example, while women are a minority in the prison population, one out of every two women is incarcerated because of a drug-related crime.
