DATU ODIN SINSUAT, Maguindanao — The military has placed all its units in Central Mindanao on red alert Saturday, two days before Monday’s holding of national and local elections, citing there are groups planning to sabotage the electoral process.
Petinglay said the Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters (BIFF) remains a primary threat in the holding of polls. Petinglay assured the safety of residents who would go out on Monday to vote, adding soldiers in conflict areas will be deployed 50-meters from the polling centers. Lawyer Francisco Pobe, Comelec-Central Mindanao director, said their action placing 10 towns under areas of concerns was based on the results of the joint assessment conducted by police and military regarding the security situation. BATANGAS CITY—A reelectionist councilor in Tanauan City in Batangas province was killed while his security aide was wounded when they were shot by a lone gunman while the official was meeting with leaders of a tricycle drivers’ group in his city on Friday night, police said. London mayoral candidate Labour Party’s Sadiq Khan arrives with his wife Saadiya to cast their votes at a polling station in Streatham, south west London, Thursday May 5, 2016. Khan won despite a concerted, and controversial, campaign by Conservative rival Zac Goldsmith to taint him with ties to Islamic extremists, claiming Khan had shared a platform with a radical London imam.
Khan, a former human rights lawyer, accused Goldsmith of trying to divide Londoners, and pointed out that he’d often shared platforms with people he disagreed with. Khan stands on the political center-left, and supported Labour policies including the legalization of gay marriage, a stance he said brought death threats. Khan served as communities minister in the government of Prime Minister Gordon Brown before Labour lost power in 2010. Married to lawyer Saadiya Ahmed — the couple has two daughters — Khan is a fan of boxing, and colleagues say he’s a deft and powerful political operator. He has spoken of his gratitude that his family had a secure, affordable home when he was growing up — something he fears younger Londoners are increasingly denied, in a city where market-rate rents and property prices have soared and local authorities build little social housing.
CEBU CITY—A young mother and her three children aged 4, 2 and three weeks old were among the seven persons who perished in the fire that broke out early Saturday morning in an urban poor village here. The bodies of Cindy Galvan, 22 and her children were found by firefighters huddled together near what used to be the stairs of the two-story house in Barangay Pahina Central, Cebu City owned by Maximo Villafuerte. Villafuerte, common-law wife Rose, 37 and two-year-old granddaughter, Jannah, were also killed in the fire that affected 70 houses. SFO2 Noel Opolentissima, fire investigator, said the fire started from the house of Villafuerte, which had no power connection. Galvan and her family were renting a room on the second floor of Villafuerte’s house.
When the fire broke out on the ground floor of the house, Galvan and her three children were trapped on the second floor. They apparently ran to the stairs but could not go down because the blaze had already engulfed the ground floor. The young mother and her children stayed near the stairs where they were later found by firefighters.
Galvan was holding her three-week old baby, Rain Cinrick,close to her chest while Star, 2 and Rickcin, 4 were on her side, said  Opolentissima. Their bodies were identified by Galvan’s common-law husband, Ricardo Alvarez, 27, who was on duty as a housekeeper of a pension house when the fire broke out. She said she left her daughter to her father and stepmother upon the request of Rose who had grown fond of Jannah. Trump grudgingly agreed to meet next week with Paul Ryan, the Republican House speaker whose statement a day earlier — he said he was not ready to embrace Trump’s nomination — set off the intraparty fireworks.
He said he was not surprised about Bush’s stance and was tersely dismissive of Graham. Ryan said his meeting with Trump would occur next Thursday and that Trump also would meet with other House GOP leaders.
The unlikely back-and-forth came a day after Ryan injected new uncertainty into the turbulent presidential contest by refusing, for now, to endorse Trump.
Democrats are generally steering clear of the Republican infighting, letting the party’s leaders tear at each other. As the reality of the GOP divisions sank in Friday, some Republicans were not shy about expressing their displeasure with Ryan. It all comes at a moment when Trump needs to be reaching out to the women, minorities and others who will be crucial for him to triumph in November over Hillary Clinton, the likely Democratic nominee.
Ryan himself said in his initial comments on CNN that he hopes to be able to come around to supporting Trump. FORT MCMURRAY, Alberta — A massive convoy was under way Friday to move evacuees stranded at oil field camps north of Fort McMurray, Alberta amid a massive wildfire that officials fear could double in size by the end of Saturday. As police and military oversaw the procession of at least 500 vehicles, a mass airlift of evacuees resumed. More than 80,000 people have left Fort McMurray in the heart of Canada’ oil sands, where the fire has torched 1,600 homes and other buildings. The Alberta provincial government, which declared a state of emergency, said Friday the size of the fire had grown to more than 101,000 hectares (249,571 acres). The government said 1,100 firefighters, 110 helicopters, 295 pieces of heavy equipment and more than 27 air tankers were fighting the fire. Morrison said he expectd the fire to expand into a more remote forested area northeast and away from Fort McMurray but said extremely dry conditions and a hot tempature of 27 Celsius (81 Fahrenheit) was expected Saturday along with strong winds.
About 25,000 evacuees moved north in the hours after Tuesday’s mandatory evacuation, where oil sands work camps that usually house employees were used to house evacuees. The Alberta government is providing cash to 80,000 evacuees from the Fort McMurray fire to help them with their immediate needs. Police are escorting 50 vehicles at a time, south through the city itself on Highway 63 at a distance of about 20 kilometers (12.4 miles) south and then releasing the convoy.
All intersections along the convoy route have been blocked off and evacuees are not being allowed back to check on their homes in Fort McMurray. Fort McMurray is surrounded by wilderness, and there are essentially only two ways out via road.
Crystal Mercredi packed her two kids and got out of town Tuesday, and even though her husband was just 20 minutes behind packing a trailer, he didn’t get out until hours later because it was bumper to bumper traffic as the fire descended upon the city. Mercredi evacuated north but then moved south overnight and headed to Lac La Biche, Alberta, about 175 kilometers (109 miles) south, where her family has a lake house that housed 50 people the first night of the mandatory evacuation. Lac La Biche, normally a sleepy town of 2,500, is helping about 12,000 evacuees, providing a place to sleep, food, donated clothes and even shelter for their pets. Mercredi said she was lucky that a Shell employee filled their tank with gas after they initially evacuated north.
Fanned by high winds, scorching heat and low humidity, the fire grew from 75 square kilometers (29 square miles) Tuesday to 100 square kilometers (39 square miles) on Wednesday, but by Thursday it was almost nine times that — at 850 square kilometers (330 square miles).
The fire is so large that smoke from the fair is blanketing parts of the neighboring province of Saskatchewan where Environment Canada has issued special air quality statements for several areas.
Unseasonably hot temperatures combined with dry conditions have transformed the boreal forest in much of Alberta into a tinder box. The region has the third-largest reserves of oil in the world behind Saudi Arabia and Venezuela. Greg Pardy, an analyst with RBC Capital Markets, said that as much as 1 million barrels a day of oil may be offline, based on oil company announcements. The Supreme Court has ordered local judges to go to work on Monday, Election Day, in anticipation of urgent poll-related cases.
In a circular, Court Administrator Jose Midas Marquez directed executive judges of Regional Trial Courts, Metropolitan Trial Courts and Municipal Trial Courts and judges of single-sala courts to go on duty on May 9, a special nonworking holiday, to attend to cases of election offenses.
Election matters that may be brought forward to courts include cases of election-related violence, complaints of vote buying and other blatant violations of the Omnibus Election Code and the automated election law. Marquez said judges must be ready to act on cases that may be referred from areas outside their original jurisdiction, in the absence of judges in charge. Clerks of court were also directed to maintain a skeletal force in their offices to handle fees and cash bonds that may be posted for election-related cases.
A president must not only have good plans for the country, but must also be able to inspire people to be able to carry out these programs, Sen. In an interview over the ABS-CBN News Channel, Poe said the country’s economy would be safe under her.
She said she had been getting briefings from top economists and business experts, including Ramon del Rosario, Cielito Habito and Romy Bernardo.
She noted that when she headed the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board, she was able to work with people with diverse backgrounds. In the Senate, she said she presided over hearings where everybody had their own political agenda and was able to keep the peace and the pace of the proceedings. She added that under her presidency, there would be an economic environment conducive to investments.
To achieve this, Poe said the Constitution should be amended to ease foreign ownership restrictions to attract foreign investors and create more jobs.
Poe also said citizens who are happy with the way things are right now don’t have to vote for her. MEMBERS of the Catholic charismatic group El Shaddai are supporting the presidential and vice presidential bids of Vice President Jejomar “Jojo” Binay and Sen. However, the members’ support does not translate to an endorsement from their influential leader, Bro. Vargas said Binay and Marcos got the highest votes from El Shaddai members during the mock polls held last Saturday so the two candidates get the religious group’s support. The group initially released sample ballots bearing the names of Binay, along with the four other presidentiables—Sen. Villarama said members were initially divided as to who they want to become president as all five bets each got votes.
But Vargas said that among the five, Binay got about 70 to 75 percent of the votes during mock polls.
He said they released a new sample ballot yesterday with the oval beside Binay and Marcos’ name already shaded.
Velarde is expected to read the names of the candidates on the sample ballot during the groups’ prayer vigil today. They are: former Interior Secretary Rafael Alunan III, former Justice Secretary Leila de Lima, Valenzuela Rep. A WORD war between vice presidential candidates Alan Peter Cayetano and Antonio Trillanes IV has ensued following the airing on Thursday of the negative political advertisement that targeted Davao Mayor Rodrigo Duterte. The Regional Trial Court in Taguig City, bailiwick of Cayetano’s spouse, Mayor Lani Cayetano, yesterday issued a 72-hour temporary restraining order (TRO) that stopped TV stations from airing the political campaign ad. The 30-second TV spot was shown Thursday over ABS-CBN TV, which said the commercial was paid for by Trillanes. The TV ad featured clips of Duterte’s controversial actions, including his cursing of the Pope (with the expletive bleeped out), his threat to kill people, his rape joke about an Australian missionary, and his praise of the New People’s Army. These were interspersed with shots of children asking if this is what the people want and whether this set a good example. One child said it was wrong to kill, another said it was wrong to disrespect women, and a third said children should be taught the right thing. In a statement, Trillanes said it was hypocritical for supporters of Duterte to complain about the use of children in a TV ad that had the youngsters questioning the mayor’s actions on the campaign trail. Trillanes pointed out that Duterte’s supporters were all too happy to laugh at his jokes about rape and his penis, which children could easily hear. Presidential candidate Grace Poe, who used to head the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board, said the TV ad did not show anything untrue. The senator said that when she headed the board, what was important was to show the truth without being vulgar. Trillanes also took time to explain why he used children in the TV ad targeting Duterte, who leads by double digits in surveys on presidential preference. The senator added that the children were shown in a positive light and all pertinent laws were followed in making the ad. Trillanes said he paid for the TV ads using the funds he had raised through campaign contributions. He also pointed out that compared with the other candidates, he had spent only a fraction for ad expenses. But Cayetano slammmed Malacanang for allegedly conspiring with political teams of presidential candidates Poe and Mar Roxas to make a last minute destabilizing attacks against Duterte. Although Duterte has received death threats, the miting de avance will still push through in Rizal Park from 5 p.m.
As early as the time of President Elpidio Quirino, the rambunctious Philippine media bewailed the “guns, goons and gold” campaign tactics employed by practically every serious candidate for local and national office.
And yet, the absence of true political parties with detailed and clearly articulated economic policies and development strategies has left our people inexplicably drawn to the fiery outbursts of petty demagogues, adventurists and charlatans, like moths to a flame. I have heard cynics say more than once that the Filipino people are not mature enough for democracy. The rest of the world probably thinks that Philippine society must have made a wrong turn somewhere on its way to the modern tech-driven world, because the era of the strongman ended in the 20th century. Even the best and brightest among us are wearily disappointed and deeply frustrated by an electoral process that has yielded leaders unable to inspire us to be the selfless Filipino citizens that earned the admiration and respect of the global community just three decades ago. And maybe that’s where we should all begin: When Marcos called for a snap election in 1986 he was supremely confident that he would get his way. The situation is a lot more complex now, because those seeking public office today are wildly popular sports heroes, action stars, media heartthrobs, and one heavily romanticized vigilante. If or when Duterte wins, he is duty-bound to do what is right for all of us, not for just the ones who contributed to his electoral victory. THE ENDGAME is usually about tying up loose ends and finessing the final touches required to ensure a smooth victory. Mere days before May 9, the charges are still flying thick, fast and loose, such that Grace Poe, for instance, had to call a press conference just to deny the rumor boiling on social media that she was on the verge of quitting to give way to Mar Roxas, and thus ensure the defeat of frontrunner Rodrigo Duterte. Meanwhile, VP candidate Bongbong Marcos has aired suspicion that some manipulation is going on; his noticeable slide in the surveys, he said, appears to be a ruse to condition the public mind to his eventual loss to Leni Robredo, whose rating has soared at his expense.
It’s a prelude to cheating, he warned—a warning that, ordinarily, would be met with sympathy and concern, except for the rich fact that this time it’s the dictator’s son complaining of poll fraud, something he would presumably know much about given his late father’s record when it came to stealing the vote. You’d think that episode in history would have taught subsequent leaders that cheating in elections is so high a crime that it can lead to revolution and the ouster of anyone foolhardy enough to tamper with the people’s will. Impunity does not erupt from a vacuum; in this case, impunity is Arroyo escaping accountability for the poll sabotage in which she directly participated, and other candidates learning all too well that they, too, can attempt the same without consequences. THESE DAYS we are witnessing a lot of anger expressed everywhere and in every manner, much of which I can understand and empathize with.
Alas, Aristotle again tells us, that’s only as far as we can agree, that we all aim at “some good.” Beyond mere verbal agreement, we differ on what this good is. Aristotle thus locates our unique human function in our soul, specifically in the rational part of the soul.
Aristotle thus arrives at a definition of what doing well as a human being means—that is to say, what happiness means. These days when it’s so easy to be angry, we must ask: What is it that which we assume to be good, that makes us all angry, and which we are so convinced we should aim at (and makes us angry if the others don’t get it)? Remember the Tankman in Tiananmen Square, who faced a line of military tanks without noise, and carrying nothing but what looked like mere grocery bags? Imagine if the collective energies we spend getting angry these days—the wrong kind, the vicious and not the virtuous kind—imagine if those energies were instead used for social justice, that the land that belongs to all of us may be set free to feed all of us, and no one, least of all those who till the land, may go hungry. Let us then aim all our efforts, all our energies and all our dreams toward that which will bring out the best in us.
Following his charges of unreported income and misdeclared statements of assets, liabilities and net worth, Sen. The last presidential debate, held in Dagupan, added little information on Duterte’s plans for realizing his extravagant promises. The medical assessment, reported by Aaron Lozada of ABS-CBN News, came from documents presented for the civil annulment of Duterte’s marriage with his first wife.
The biggest damage Duterte suffered in Dagupan was inflicted by his statements giving credence to the psychological diagnosis.
Pangasinan fishermen, appealing for assistance against Chinese ships barring them from traditional fishing grounds in the West Philippine Sea, underlined the link between national and economic security. Force cannot be the main response to all aspects of security, nor to the electorate’s concern for inclusive economic development. WITH TWO days to go before we go to the polls, I would like to state my choice of conscience: the Mar Roxas-Leni Robredo tandem.
This campaign has been a marathon journey, and now is the time to draw upon our collective courage. Since our country’s landmark experience in 1986, the task still remains essentially unfinished, because the past is not truly past. We need to redouble our efforts and renew our resolve to build a lasting legacy of a just peace, based on democratic participation and rule of law.
Before the Iglesia ni Cristo announced its anointed candidates, Cagayan de Oro Archbishop Antonio Ledesma issued a pastoral letter, “A Matter of Conscience,” where he condemned the practice of summary killings documented by the testimonies gathered by the Redemptorist priest Fr.
Politics is the art of imperfect creation, and there are no perfect candidates running for public office.
Mar and Leni represent what is best in the Filipino and can ensure the building of a just peace in our land—where the needs of the most vulnerable are given priority and the concerns of all are addressed.
The combined experience and accomplishments of Mar and Leni in the executive and legislative branches of government enable them to understand the complex issues of leading a country. If we are to make a difference in the life of our nation and build a future that is different from the past, we must sustain the Mar-Leni momentum.
Hope, in the words of Vaclav Havel, is to find meaning and purpose in the work we do and the life we lead.
We stand firm in the hope that this campaign and our collective courage will give us the victory that our people so richly deserve.
Ed Garcia, one of the framers of the 1987 Constitution, worked with Amnesty International and International Alert based in London for over two decades.
Item: She has been exposed to the best in Philippine politics by osmosis, since 1991 through her husband, the late great Jesse Robredo, who transformed Naga from a mediocre city into one of the most awarded cities, both nationally and internationally. Item: After she married him, she studied law (she holds a degree in economics from UP Diliman) at the University of Nueva Caceres. She founded an NGO (not a family enterprise, as most politicians establish, but a legitimate one): the Lakas ng Kababaihan ng Naga. Item: She refused to run for mayor of Naga when term limits prevented her husband from running again, bucking pressure from him and political leaders. Item: She ran for Congress with utmost reluctance (most politicians are dying to run), and she beat her rival, who was the matriarch of a dynasty in her province and who wished to succeed her husband. Item: Her roughly 15 years doing propoor, propeople work is reflected in her advocacies in her almost three years in Congress.
The other measures authored or supported by her have titles that are self-explanatory: the antidynasty bill, the participatory budget process bill, the people empowerment bill, the proposed Healthy Beverage Options Act, the bill creating an Agrarian Reform Commission to validate the accomplishments of and investigate violations against the CARP (Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program), and the open-door policy bill (which removes any dress code requirements of government offices so that the poor can come in anytime).
Item: And we all have seen the picture of Congresswoman Robredo waiting for the Naga-bound bus, no aides, no trappings of royalty, carrying her own luggage. The ISSP is a network of some 50 organizations that continuously collaborate in doing annual national surveys on important social science topics.
The Baltic states of Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia had all been occupied by the Soviet Union for about 50 years, from the onset of World War II until 1990 when they were able to break away and regain their independence. The ISSP is based on voluntary cooperation, with each member self-funding its own survey and its own attendance at the assembly. For the 2013 ISSP survey on national identity, KTU took a sample of 1,194 adults in Lithuania and SWS took a sample of 1,200 adults in the Philippines. Lithuania appears much better off than the Philippines, according to its very high Human Development Index (HDI), which was 0.834 in 2013, ranking it 35th among 187 countries.
On the other hand, we Filipinos give ourselves much higher ratings on happiness, according to the 2011 ISSP survey of Health and Health Care done by SWS, which found 87 percent of us feeling “completely” or “very” or “fairly” happy, 6 percent feeling neither happy nor unhappy, and 7 percent feeling “fairly” or “very” or “completely” unhappy. Arvydas Sabonis had been on the national teams of both the USSR and Lithuania, and was a Most Valuable Player in the European leagues, before being drafted as a Portland Trail Blazer in the National Basketball Association.
Lithuania’s largest basketball stadium is the Zalgirio Arena in Kaunas, home court of BC Zalgiris Kaunas, and the cathedral of Lithuanian professional basketball. Senator Alan, more than anyone else, you can deal a fatal blow to the presidential ambition of Mayor Duterte.


IF THE trend will not change, Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte will be the next president of the country. Duterte, knowing that he could be impeached considering that his allies would be a minority in the House of Representatives, has threatened to abolish Congress in retaliation for such a move. A leftist group, the New People’s Army with which Duterte has no qualms about admitting his connections, could join the conspiracy and sow anarchy to justify the situation. If Duterte should fail in abolishing Congress, he would likely be convicted by the Senate, where he would have few allies.
Both scenarios would have the same impact on our country: negative economic growth, less investments, high unemployment rate, inflation, rising commodity prices, worsening poverty, more crimes, etc. THE BRUTAL act of China in releasing chemicals to destroy the corals and marine species around Pag-asa island does not just destroy the immediate vicinity of that island.
The Philippine government does not pay much attention to this due to the busy election campaign. All Filipinos should join hands to put an end to the insurgency and separatist rebellion so our country can focus on addressing its dispute with China over the West Philippine Sea. Until his replacement is announced, Helen Yuchengco-Dee will oversee the bank’s operations, as president and CEO, supported by a management team composed of RCBC vice chair Cesar EA Virata, director Armando Medina and the current group of senior managers.
Tan was implicated in the money laundering issue after the bank’s former Jupiter Street branch manager Maia Deguito said he asked her to “take care” of valued client Kim Wong, a casino junket operator whose Chinese client was said to have brought in funds that were later found to have been stolen from the Bangladesh central bank. In a statement, Tan expressed his gratitude to the shareholders, officers and customers of RCBC. ALL FIVE presidential aspirants—Jejomar Binay, Miriam Defensor-Santiago, Rodrigo Duterte, Grace Poe and Mar Roxas will support moves to lift the bank secrecy law in order to examine the accounts of suspected tax evaders. For his part, Roxas pointed out that he had earlier signed a waiver of bank secrecy law for the duration of his candidacy. Binay, Defensor-Santiago and Duterte did not elaborate on their responses to the said question.
Bank accounts allegedly belonging to the front-runner Duterte were leaked last week by vice presidential candidate Antonio Trillanes, while Binay had also been accused of keeping billion-peso bank accounts.
All of the five presidential candidates said they “would institute moves for a genuine, comprehensive tax reform” when catapulted to the highest post in the land. Binay, Santiago, Duterte, Poe and Roxas also said they would support an immediate adjustment of the personal income tax brackets to take inflation into account. In the cases of Binay and Poe, they committed to implement the income tax rate adjustment within their first 100 days in office while Duterte said he would do so in his first 180 days as president. Roxas did not commit to implementing the tax bracket adjustments within his first 100 days in office. The country’s dollar reserves reached a 29-month high of $83.47 billion as of the end of the first four months of the year, preliminary data released by the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) Friday showed. The increase in GIR in April, however, was partially offset by the government’s payments for maturing foreign exchange obligations, Aquino said.
The GIR level as of end-April can cover 10.4 months’ worth of imports of goods and services. The BSP defines short-term debt based on residual maturity as outstanding foreign debt whose original maturity was a year or less, plus principal payments on medium- and long-term loans of the government as well as the private sector that were due within the next 12 months. DBS Bank Ltd., the largest bank in Southeast Asia, sees the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas’ (BSP) Monetary Board keeping interest rates steady at next week’s policy meeting.
As of April, inflation—the rate of increase in prices of basic goods and services—averaged 1.1 percent, below the government’s 2-4 percent target range for the year. Separately, think tank Oxford Economics sees the Philippines’ monetary authorities holding off from any adjustment in key policy rates this year. Taylor rule refers to a monetary policy tenet that stipulates how much the central bank should change the nominal interest rate in response to changes in inflation, output or other economic conditions. Inflation settled at an average of 1.4 percent in 2015, the lowest annual rate in almost two decades. But in the case of the Philippines, “although its negative inflation gap suggests a low Taylor Rule interest rate, robust domestic growth momentum means there is little need for rate cuts in our view,” Kishore said. We have alerted all our units on the ground,” Captain Joan Petinglay, spokesperson for the military’s 6th Division, told the Inquirer.
Mary Ann Torres, Batangas provincial police information officer, said Tanauan Councilor Epimaco Magpantay, 64, died while being taken to the Daniel Mercado Medical Center in Tanauan. Britons are voting in local and regional elections expected to deal a blow to Britain’s main opposition Labour Party.
Like many Londoners, he’s the son of immigrants, born to parents who came to Britain from Pakistan. He grew up in a three-bedroom public-housing apartment in south London, sharing a bedroom with brothers until he was in his early 20s. He became a partner in human rights law firm Christian Khan, and in 2005 was elected to Parliament for Tooting, the area where he grew up.
His role included fostering cohesion in the years after the July 2005 London transit bombings, when al-Qaida-inspired suicide bombers killed 52 commuters. Khan was quick to criticize Labour members who made anti-Israel remarks and urged Corbyn to be tougher in stamping out anti-Semitism. Aides said that, far from seeking to helm an anti-Trump movement, Ryan hopes to exert a positive influence for the general election campaign after a nominating contest that has alienated women, minorities and other voter groups.
The telegenic Wisconsin Republican served as his party’s vice presidential nominee in 2012, was drafted to the high-profile role of House speaker last fall and is seen as having designs on the 2020 presidential nomination himself. And that runs the risk of creating a Goldwater kind of moment where the party really does split,” former House Speaker Newt Gingrich told The Associated Press, referring to the 1964 Republican presidential nominee whose candidacy divided the GOP and was followed by a big Democratic victory.
Trump and Ryan also have disagreements on policy, from immigration to Social Security to trade. Trump made what he appeared to believe was an overture in that direction Thursday by tweeting a photo of himself eating a taco bowl in celebration of Cinco de Mayo and declaring his love for Hispanics. More than 80,000 people have left Fort McMurray in the heart of Canada oil sands, where the fire has torched over 1,000 homes and other buildings. A day after 8,000 people were flown out, 5,500 more were expected to be flown out on Friday and another 4,000 were expected to be airlifted Saturday. The mass evacuation has forced as much as a quarter of Canada’s oil output offline according to estimates and is expected to impact a country already hurt by a dramatic fall in the price of oil. But the bulk of the more than 80,000 evacuees fled south to Edmonton and elsewhere, and officials are moving everyone south where it is safer and they can get better support services.
Premier Rachel Notley said her cabinet has approved a payment of $1,250 Canadian (US$967) per adult and $500 Canadian (US$387) per dependent at a cost to the province of $100 million Canadian (US$77 million).
John Spaans, a Royal Canadian Mounted Police spokesman, said the goal was to get all vehicles out of the area Friday if the weather, fire and road conditions cooperate, but officials later said in a release it would take about four days. Morrison, the wildfire prevention manager, said the cause of the fire hasn’t been determined, but he said it started in a remote forested area and could have been ignited by lightning. She does not want Filipinos to wake up one day and realize they are living in a country no longer largely owned by its citizens. Neither do those who want to take back the country to 30 to 40 years ago, when people’s freedoms were curtailed.
Mike would not be endorsing any candidate but he allowed the release of the result of the mock polls to preserve the unity of the community,” said Robles. Yet they laugh every time Duterte cusses and jokes about his penis and rape not realizing that children are listening, too?” he said. But if any vulgarity would be shown because it was the truth, it has to have redeeming social value. Thus, he said it was was ironic that he was now being questioned for spending on the anti-Duterte ads.
Social scientists and anthropologists say that’s because Filipinos tend to be both contentious and loyal to a fault. We spend time and money to join the sorties and show our undying support because we believe our candidate can do no wrong, despite what the rival camps say. Facebook, in particular, has become a no-holds-barred battleground for the hearts and minds of the electorate. The Philippines has been recognized as a prime destination for globally positioned businesses in the IT BPM (information technology and business process management) industry, which now employs over a million people and continues to generate thousands upon thousands of jobs daily. They cite the surprising support for Mayor Rodrigo Duterte of Davao City, whose public pronouncements range from uncivil to outright reprehensible. He would have been more at home in the company of authoritarian rulers like Pol Pot of Cambodia, Idi Amin Dada of Uganda, Suharto of Indonesia, and Ferdinand Marcos of the Philippines.
Whatever he does, whatever he becomes, reflects on all of us whether we voted for him or not. But, as in the case of what seems like the most bitterly contested presidential election in recent Philippine history, it may turn out to be a pell-mell, elbows-flying dash to the finish line, with the candidates refusing to yield and using wiles, condoned or not, to gain even a nanosecond of advantage to be the first to heave themselves at the tape. A counterpart online petition, in fact, exists: that Roxas give way instead to Poe, again as supposedly the only way to stop the specter of a Duterte presidency.
That, in any case, is the warning issued by many in the Duterte camp in the past days—that Roxas and the Liberal Party should think twice about pulling the rug out from under what is supposedly sure to be a Duterte victory, or there would be hell to pay.
Can there possibly be only one good, one that is truly good for all, not just incidentally, but insofar as we are all human?
If all I did in my life is hit the gym and be obsessed about my figure, but never care to read a book, or try to write, or be curious enough to study or learn something, I may indeed succeed in getting that perfect body, but I would simply be living a vegetable life.
It is something we do in such a way that it manifests the best in us—that is to say, our human excellence. But for Aristotle, justice is the complete virtue, the perfect virtue, the virtue of all virtues. More recently, a woman named Tess Asplund faced neo-Nazis in Sweden all by herself, raising her fist in protest, and was reported to have said, “The Nazis are very angry, so I am a little ‘Oh sh*t, maybe I shouldn’t have done that, I want peace and quiet.’ These guys are big and crazy. Barbaza is with the Department of Philosophy, School of Humanities, Ateneo de Manila University. Business schools recommend asking one final question to confirm or counter a decision: What if I am wrong?
Antonio Trillanes has filed a plunder case against Mayor Rodrigo Duterte for ghost employees, thus advancing the narrative that Duterte may be both a human rights violator and corrupt. Adversaries spared him further grilling on his “Dapat ang mayor ang mauna” comment on the rape of an Australian missionary, which did say something about his views on the perks of public office. Natividad Dayan, former president of the International Council of Psychologists, and with Duterte’s way of dismissing accusations leveled at him.
Climate change, felt by the Kidapawan farmers suffering from the drought triggered by El Nino, has elevated security to the planetary level.
We have made progress in expanding economic opportunities, improving the delivery of social services, and controlling corruption. Its achievement depends on enduring commitment to the rule of law and democratic values and on leaders who can be trusted not to reverse the policies that have made a measure of success possible, so that we can build on what has been achieved. Granting that many more deserve prosecution, when have we seen so many “big fish” brought before the courts?
Consider his take-no-prisoner orientation and his Lone Ranger approach to contentious national issues, including negotiations with the National Democratic Front and with China.
We cannot afford to return to the practices of the past or rely on uncertain and untested promises.
That is the reason we need, more than ever, to come together and support the Mar-Leni tandem in this defining moment in the life of our nation. Both Mar and Leni are no strangers to sacrifice; they have experienced the pain of loss, and know the sacrifice of giving up to give more. Both have given their lives to dedicated service to others, without counting the cost and with generous hearts.
In their years of service in and outside government, as legislators or NGO workers, as members of the executive branch whether in national or local levels, Mar and Leni have demonstrated their capacity to always deliver their best. Now is the time to make public our political positions, to announce our choices with pride, and to humbly proclaim the names of our candidates. There is a groundswell for governance that is grounded on accountability, an economy that is inclusive and founded on sound principles of development and that is both just and sustainable.
If we are to lead, we must be ready to face these challenges in the days ahead: to be steadfast in our faith that we can build a better nation, to strengthen our determination to bring out the best in us Filipinos, and to share the conviction in this campaign’s homestretch period that together our support for the Mar-Leni tandem represents our best chance to continue to transform lives so that our children can inherit a better future.
He taught political science at the University of the Philippines and at the Interdisciplinary Studies Department of Ateneo de Manila University.
Transparency, accountability, and the use of people power to facilitate the changeover were practiced since Day 1.
She used her law not to make money for herself, but to empower the people: In the Public Attorney’s Office and later with Saligan (an alternative legal support group), she gave legal aid and worked with the marginalized sectors—farmers, fishers, battered and abused women and children.
By a vote of 80 percent-20 percent, on a campaign that was mostly shoe-leather (house-to-house), hardly any money involved (she had none). A husband and wife, after 25 years of marriage and maybe 20 years in politics, with no wealth, explained or unexplained. People who think they are above the law (Honasan, Trillanes, with their coup attempts—but only against women presidents).
She is a breath of fresh air in the rancid political atmosphere of greed and self-interest. SWS became the Philippine member of the ISSP in 1990, six years after the ISSP was established, and has done all the 26 ISSP surveys of 1991-2016.
It has done all the ISSP surveys since then: Social Inequality (2009), Environment (2010), Health and Health Care (2011), Family and Changing Gender Roles (2012), National Identity (2013), Citizenship (2014), Work Orientations (2015), and Role of Government (2016).
The ISSP makes its major decisions on survey topics and questionnaires on a one-country-one-vote basis in the general assembly.
Most of the comparisons between Filipinos and other nationalities that I have described in this column are based on ISSP data. Lithuania has only about 3 million people, in 60,000 square kilometers, whereas the Philippines has over 100 million people, crowded into 300,000 square kilometers.
In the United States, with a population of over 300 million, the National Opinion Research Center took a sample of 1,274 adults.
On the other hand, the Philippines’ 2013 HDI was only a medium-sized 0.660, ranking it 117th of the lot. The standard brochure given to Kaunas visitors has two welcome statements: one from the mayor of Kaunas and the second from Arvydas Sabonis, president of the Lithuanian Basketball Federation.
When we went there for a gala dinner, we found the words “Welcome to the Members of ISSP” running in lights all around the basketball court.
That veneer is no more and he has been exposed for who he really is: rapacious with money as he is with power. In his heart of hearts, he should know by now that Mayor Duterte is not that person he wants us to believe he is, but a lying bully and a dangerous man who, as president, will bring ruin and dishonor upon our country.
It is almost certain that impeachment complaints will be filed against him, year after year.
Although the abolition of Congress would be unconstitutional under our present democratic system, he could still do this by conspiring with the military and declaring martial law or a revolutionary government. In such a scenario, the Constitution and the impeachment would be pushed out of public consciousness, and Duterte could continue to hold on to power.
It’s possible for us to wake up one day with Chinese soldiers already on our shorelines, until then unnoticed because everybody was focused on winning the elections in 2016. Tan denied the accusation, and filed civil and criminal cases against Deguito and her lawyer for libel and perjury. We are one of only three countries in the entire world, the other two being Lebanon and Switzerland, where tax administration cannot access bank transactions due to our restrictive Bank Secrecy Law. We have to keep in mind that while the intention might be good, there will be unintended consequences. Yes, inflation is below target, but some upward pressure persists amid unpredictable food prices.
All the presidential candidates seem to be rather populist in their economic agenda and clearly pro-growth in the near-term. This is especially true for Philippines, Thailand and Singapore where real interest rates calculated using current (first quarter of 2016) consumer price index inflation are close to ten-year highs, even though the nominal ones are at 10-year lows. She believes her Fort McMurray home is still intact but said her best friend lost hers based on video they saw. He never endorses,” said Rey Vargas, head of El Shaddai’s education, training and deployment ministry. Before Ferdinand Marcos declared martial law in 1972, we only had two political parties—Liberal and Nacionalista. It’s the same misguided fervor that we bestow on our beloved basketball teams or telenovela stars. The other sectors, like manufacturing, agriculture and semiconductors, are all experiencing growth. He has even said publicly that he will give the presidency to Bongbong Marcos should he fail to meet his campaign promise of ending crime in six months, either in total disregard of the Constitution or on the presumption that the dictator’s son will win the vice presidency. Insults have been traded, relationships have been shattered, and friendships have been eroded in the course of this campaign. Instead, the violence and fraud of the 1986 election, captured in color by the world’s journalists who had descended on the country, only hastened the demise of the Marcos regime. Independent senatorial candidate Walden Bello has waded in by saying that while Duterte may appear to be a threat to democracy with his iron-fisted ideas, the greater threat is scaring people into accepting that cheating is justified to prevent such a nightmare presidency from happening. President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo and her powerful machinery pulled out all the stops to stoke the electorate’s fears about actor Fernando Poe Jr. Today, Duterte supporters are being egged on by their leaders with warnings of cheating and wholesale fraud, on the unquestioned assumption that their candidate is already assured of victory. Vigilance is of utmost importance to make sure the Comelec does not drop the ball, or worse, engage in partisanship. A knife is good not just if it cuts, but if it cuts well, and is sturdy enough to be used again and again for that function.
That is our nutritive and vegetative function—something we share with plants and animals, and therefore not uniquely human. If I find myself involved in an ugly road altercation, I can get so carried away by my instincts and emotions that I might end up in a fit of road rage. It also includes economic security, and workers’ need for better-paying, more secure jobs that will enable them to support their families.
What if, on the pretext of promoting unity, Duterte’s intent is to bury with Ferdinand Marcos’ body in the Libingan ng mga Bayani the cases against the Napoles plunderers, the recovery of the wealth plundered during martial law, the assorted scams during the Arroyo administration, and the prosecution of those responsible for the Ampatuan massacre? What if, now armed with the powers of the presidency, he continues this management style and policy thrust? I believe, moreover, that our choices reflect who we are in the eyes of our children and the rest of the world. Killed in Davao City alone were 1,424 people from 1998 to 2015, 52 of whom were women and 132 children. Their preparation enables them to create inclusive approaches, to empower people, to bring out the best in others and to build the institutions required.
It is a badge of honor to be associated with candidates who have integrity, who embody honesty and hard work, and who have a track record of service measured in decades of exemplary leadership.
They can convene a talented and trusted team that will pursue our national interests while undertaking economic diplomacy, seeking climate justice, and dealing fairly and firmly with our neighbors in the Asean, the Asia-Pacific, as well as in Europe and the Americas.
Profoundsocial change will not take place in the lifetime of one administration, but will require the sustained support of several generations. She represents the change we want, and so desperately need, in Philippine politics and politicians. And this was exemplified when the Sumilao farmers, marching from Bukidnon to Manila, stopped by Naga. The first she filed was the full disclosure bill, mandating all government agencies down the line to disclose all budget and financial transactions even without any request from the public. She tells you like it is, and will not change her views depending on who she is talking to.
With outstanding records in their political areas, where they have truly made a difference in terms of helping their constituents. And any other president (I will weep for the country if that occurs) will unduly limit Leni’s potential.


What they had lacked was not scientific expertise, but the academic freedom, to do social surveys. Filipinos can be compared to Lithuanians on the basis of exactly the same questionnaire, applied to surveys of equally high quality, starting with the ISSP survey of 2009.
These surveys are of equal accuracy because their sample sizes are equal; the differences in the populations of the countries do not affect their accuracy. This was in full view in the Senate hearings on the alleged ill-gotten wealth of the Binays of Makati. I believe he is a clear danger to our democratic way of life and to those who are least able to defend themselves. Let there be no New People’s Army, Communist Party of the Philippines, National Democratic Front, Abu Sayyaf, Moro Islamic Liberation Front. If we look at the numbers, Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) collections have not kept up with the growth in deposits. Hence, every decision with regard to tax brackets must be pursuant to deliberate and thoughtful consideration.
More importantly though, whether or not the economy needs a rate cut by the BSP remains questionable at this juncture,” DBS Bank economist Gundy Cahyadi said Friday. This allows the BSP to remain focused on longer-term financial stability and growth sustainability,” Cahyadi said. However, this does not necessarily mean that monetary policy is particularly restrictive in these countries,” Kishore said. Images,snapshots,and pics often capture a sentiment,a mood,a feeling,or even an idea of a person who's at the center of attention. And on Friday the 45-year-old Labour Party politician became the first person of Islamic faith to lead Europe’s largest city. She said she and her family have had trouble sleeping and have had nightmares involving fires.
While that simplified the choices for the electorate somewhat, the situation lent itself well to polarization.
Even the most conservative business analysts see a stable economic future for the Philippines, all things being equal. The people’s voice would not be denied, and we risked everything just so we could be heard. But amid the din of competing campaign messages, we must remember that the candidates merely seek to be public servants, and are not superheroes or messiahs.
In one more twist in the magic-realist yet nothing-but-pragmatic world of Philippine politics, that candidate is not only said to be supported by Arroyo and her minions, he has also promised to release her from hospital detention.
But if one is to be outraged by election cheating, that outrage cannot stop at one’s opponent. But I can also use that rational part of my soul, and tell myself that it’s not the right extent of anger that I act on, and choose to stay calm. Our soul must be active—active in such a way that it manifests excellence, and active for the purpose of achieving the highest good. That is why someone who plays the violin excellently, for example, is called a violin virtuoso.
We keep doing the right thing over and over again, until we get as close to the target as possible. Rejecting laws against extrajudicial executions, Duterte now invokes laws that protect the privacy of his bank accounts. But compare the record of the last six years with the preceding 12 years of the Estrada-Arroyo administrations. Archbishop Ledesma puts the responsibility of this mass murder both “illegal and immoral” at the doorsteps of the Davao Death Squad—unsolved by the local authorities in a place which claims to be a “city of peace and order,” led by the candidate anointed by the INC.
Because of their integrity, track record and the witness of their lives, both Mar and Leni have proven beyond a doubt that they can truly be the servant-leaders that our people deserve. Then she shepherded the Tax Incentives and Management Transparency Act, which requires the disclosure of all incentives received by businesses. But the minuses outweigh them, especially those that involve legislation that they did not support or they watered because of lobbying from big business. There were people of all ages, unlike in Western European churches, which tend to be patronized mainly by the elderly. This is a sacrifice worth taking because it will define you, your character and your political legacy.
Antonio Trillanes IV is determined to have Duterte impeached for his failure to declare assets and resources in his statement of assets, liabilities and net worth.
I just hope that China will not take advantage of this opportunity to stage an atrocity against the Philippines.
For example, in 2013, bank deposits grew by 33 percent but BIR revenues grew by only 15 percent.
Throughout the years,pictures has become one of the most popular ways to capture memorable moments.
For one shining moment the Filipino people were one, and it was not at Edsa: It was at every polling place, claiming and exercising our right to choose. Our right to vote comes with the responsibility of transcending personal aspirations and loyalties for the greater good. When the scare-mongering apparently didn’t work, Arroyo resorted to the unthinkable: On tape, she was heard instructing then Commission on Elections official Virgilio Garcillano to ensure that she won with a comfortable 1 million votes over her rival. The heinous crime of election theft should be much bigger than even this presidential brawl. She actively supports the proposed Freedom of Information Act, with one tweak that makes it more people-friendly: The agencies have to upload on the Open Data Philippines website all their financial documents whether or not there is any demand for it.
And, of course, we read that on the fateful day of her husband’s death, it was she who drove to the airport to fetch him.
Then it decided that the topic for 2019 would be Social Inequality—the same as in 2009, but keeping only two-thirds of the old questions, and changing one-third. It is a pity he is not doing well in his bid for the vice presidency in this year’s elections. Some human rights groups said they would file an impeachment complaint for his alleged human rights violations.
Let us unite now for our children and grandchildren, and the generations of Filipinos to come after them. Moreover, lifting of bank secrecy for tax investigation purposes can greatly improve our chances of strengthening our 380 Run After Tax Evaders (Rate) cases, with around P68.52 billion total estimated tax liabilities that can be recovered,” Roxas explained. If Leni [Robredo] and I win, in the first 100 days, I will launch a review for the adjustment of personal income tax brackets, which is part of the comprehensive tax reform package that I will push for,” Roxas said.
And certainly,for a tantamount of consumer and shoppers you cant put a price tag on family and holiday pics. One becomes a just person after many, many years of doing just acts, when justice (instead of injustice) becomes second nature to us. The Skype consultations with the NDF demonstrated Duterte giving greater respect to Joma Sison than he showed to Pope Francis. Contrast that with the lifestyles of most of her colleagues in the House, including the party-list ones, who revel in the luxury of cars and drivers and security backups, and living it up. Elected to the questionnaire drafting group were France, the Philippines, South Africa, Sweden, the United Kingdom, and Venezuela. Decades after the invention of the first camera, a large number of consumers and shoppers continue to take pics, in a hgh tech fashion.
We must prepare a topic outline for approval in 2017, and a draft questionnaire for approval in 2018. Instead of the antiquated bulky cameras with huge lenses,consumers and shoppers frequently use SmartPhones and digital cameras to capture images and to take holiday pics.
Roman Romulo, former Metropolitan Manila Development Authority chair Francis Tolentino, former Technical Education and Skills Development Authority Director General Joel Villanueva, and former Sen.
From family gatherings,to family picnics to traditional weddings to the holidays,consumers and shoppers often seize the opportunity at planned events and during the holidays for instance Thanksgiving and Christmas to take pictures of loved ones,family,friends and co workers. Since founding csaccac Inc in 2010, as Founder and President,I fill many hats including Product Tester and photographer. And truthfully speaking,in the beginning I experienced some difficulty;however,after I purchased my first digital camera I began to feel comfortable and enjoy the ease of taking pics with a digital camera.
Months after I purchased my first digital camera,I set my sights on a tripod, a universal stand to hold my digital camera. The main reason I purchased a tripod__ at the time, I wanted to create high quality self pics and group pics. Eventhough, I've had my tripod for some months,I am still learning the ins and outs of both my digital camera and tripod.
Well,if you havent guessed or envisioned what the featured product for the month of November 2013 looks like or remotely even resembles __then as productor tester I guess I'll do the honors first__it's my tripod. Eventually, I wanted to find out what the craze had been all about and the reason that consumers seemed to ofA  been trading in personal computers for Tablets,_well, at least leaving them at home.
Ultimately, I placed online an order for a NookHD+ then opt to pick up the tech item from the store instead of waiting for it to be shipped to my place of residency. AA  few weeks with the NookHD+, I was hooked_eventhough, IA  wasna€™t a fan of touchscreen only. And in all honesty, since the beginning of the Smart Phone craze, I had insisted upon that all of my primary tech gadgets used for work, research and blogging had to be equipped with a QWERTY keyboard. However, in this particular instance,The NookHD+, again, touchscreen only, I made an exception.
As I continued to learn the ins and outs of my newly purchased NookHD+ , at the same time, I began to inquire about the accessories compatible with the tech gadget.
In doing so, I foundA  the tech item had a Stylus Pen specifically made to use with the NookHD+. Weeks later, I purchased a different kind of Stylus Pen , I noticed while standing atA  the checkout counter at Walgreens,pictured next to this article is that Stylus Pen. Quite astonishing the Stylus Pen worked wellA  with both of my tech gadgets ( Smart Phone & Tablet). A frequent question a tantamount of consumers and shoppers find themselves entertaining especially during the holidays when manufacturers and retailers offer what they consider to be great deals and bargains.
After giving the device a run for its money as well as a brief critique of the various apps and functions,I stated in my review of the Nook HD+ how pleased I was with the tech gadget.
Further into the critique, I also commented that I was soooo pleased with the tech gadget that I wanted to protect my investment. Based on my income and budget,I considered the purchase of the Nook HD+ to be a major purchase of the year. Shortly after, I purchased the Nook HD+,I began to look at the recommended accessories for the tech gadget. Eventually, after I and my Nook HD+ survived the return and exchange 14 day trial period,I chose to protect my investment with a Nook HD+ cover.
As I began to search and think of different items that could be the product of the month for September,I began to heavily weigh in on August's product of the month,the Nook HD+cover.
Hours later,I arrived to the assertion that there's more than one way to protect your investment.
With the assertion___, there's more than one way to protect your investment, I made the final choice to make Smart Phone covers as the product of the month for September. Furthermore, within the past five years,Ive purchased several Smart Phones from Virgin Mobile. To be truthful, I've even purchased Smart Phone insurance,a good choice because a few months later my Smart Phone had an accident. Despite all of the stuff I tried, sampled, tasted and tested during the recent months, as a result of a long review and critique besides from featuring the Smart Phone as a product of the month,I began to think of the different ways Ia€™ve used to protect my Smart Phone as an alternative product of the month. For instance,Smart Phone insurance has been one the ways I protect my investment from unexpected accidents. Ostensibly, there's more than one way to protect your Smart Phone from accidents such as, for example, you accidentally drop and break your Smart Phone or in some weird, odd, freak accident as you rush out the door you accidentally step on your Smart Phone or heaven forbids the same thing happens to you that happen to me, a few months ago, I dropped my Smart Phone in the toilet. Without a question, eschewing further debate, Smart Phone insurance is a great investment for consumers and shoppers who use their Smart Phone daily and for work. Best of all, Smart Phone insurance usually saves the consumer from digging deep into their pockets.
So, what about before those mishaps and accidents, if you havena€™t figured it out__ there's more than one way to protect your investment. Even though, at first, I might of skipped over protecting my investments, I am more open to the idea of investing and protecting my major purchases.
Here's an example of what I am talking about, I currently have several Smart Phone covers to protect my Smart Phone from breakage, moisture, and malfunctioning. Varying in price,color,size and shape, most of today's Smart Phone manufacturers and retailers offer to consumers and shoppers Smart Phone covers as an accessory. From passwords, to anti-theft apps, to screen locks and codes, there's more than one way to protect your investment. Regardless of the price, and hopefully it is within your budget, a true frugal savvy shopper knows the importance of protecting their investment. Above everything else,both I and my Nook HD+ survived the return and exchange process,quite remarkable,I even have the receipt to prove it.
Unlike sooo manyA  items, I ve returned and exchanged in the past,__it,meaning my Nook HD+ survived the fourteenth days as printed on the receipt.
A business practice that's part of Barnes and Noble store policy that allows customers fourteen days to return an item.
In short,the 14th day, adhering to store policy was the final day that I couldA  actually return my Nook HD+ and get cash back.
It goes without saying ,I readA  the instructions,totally unavoidable with a new tech gadget,as well as,downloaded apps,and,uploaded wallpapers. Not quite sure,on the day I purchased my Nook HD+__ifA  in fact, I would be satisfied with my purchase,I chose at the time not to purchase any kind of accessories. As it turns out,I was soooo pleased with my purchase of the Nook HD+,I wanted to protect my investments. It doesnt matter if you're on lunch break,on a mini vacation,at a webinar or conference,filling out an online report or having to send emails can be a hassle if you don't have a wifi connection,a Broadband device is just one of the many tech gadgets that consumers and shoppers frequently use to get an internet connection. Constantly,on the go,I wanted to have access to wifiA  while away from my place of residency.
Because,I perform an arrary task that frequently requires wifi access ,I purchased a Broadband to Go device from Virgin Mobile. Egregiously,as a Virgin Mobile customer and fan,I live by Virgin Mobile products except in the case of Virgin Mobile wifi devices. Recently,I purchased Virgin Mobile's MiFi 2200 to conciliate my worries about not being able to access wifi home. Aside from very slow internet speed,the device could only connect to one tech gadget and,the 3G USB plug n play stick broke too easily. Affordable,great to have on hand for shopping emergencies,the latest in recycling,a recyclable tote makes shopping less of a hassle. Ditching the old biodegradeable plastic bags for a recyclable tote,it's a smart move and a great investment for frugal,savvy,and environmentally conscious consumers and shoppers.Available in most local chain stores and at grocery stores,recyclable totes are becoming the better choice than leaving stores with the traditional biodegradeable plastic bag. Part of a movement to get consumers and shoppers involved in recycling and to think about going green,consumers and shoppers now have the option of trading in those plastic bags for a recyclable tote. A frequent shopper,I usually purchase a couple of recyclable totes to hold store purchases and other stuff. Eventhough,I like having the choice to purchase a recyclable tote,I havent completely stop using biodegradeable plastic bags. However,I have to point out the fact that when a consumer and shoppers purchase a recyclable tote they're not limited to using the tote only in that store,that's why they're called recyclable totes because they can be used more than once.
In fact, most recycable totes last for more than a week,I should know because I still have a few leftover from the previous month. A great deal,a really good find,a price you wont find anywhere else,and the best price among competitors,I love a great sale and I love rewards for shopping.
Savings and Rewards,for most consumers and shoppers,it's all about getting the best price for items purchase daily. From household supplies to groceries,anyone who shops frequently knows consumers and shoppers love a really good sale_,the economic recession of 2008 could be the culprit. In fact,since the 2008 economic recession savings and rewards has become extremely important to American families on a budget.
For many American consumers and shoppers,the unexpected downturn of the American economy caused a disruption in their daily activies thus forcing consumer and shoppers to rethink the way they shop and how they shop.
As a frequent shopper and consumer,I am constantly looking for a great deal and sales on items I purchase regularly,mainly because I do live on a strict budget. Admittedly,after the 2008 economic recession,I rediscovered coupons,and began clipping coupons frequently. In addition to clipping coupons,I also began to check sale ads at home and at the door of stores before shopping. Along with making a shopping list,clipping coupons at home,checking sale ads at the door and comparing prices,these days one of the best ways to save and get the best deals,I feel without a question has to be with a savings and reward card.
And speaking honestly, a savings and rewards card from your local chain store should be a consumer or shoppers BF(bestie). A must have for consumers and shoppers who seriously want to save,a savings and rewards card. Throughout the years, my experience with last minute shopping in most instances was not too pleasant. Admittedly,I empathize as well as concur with consumers who express sentiments that last minute shopping makes the shopper(consumer) feel uncomfortable and forlorn with the just thought of buying a gift at the last minute. Often tight on funds to purchase a gift ahead of time,last minute shopping for an overwhelmed consumer with a limited budget could cause the consumer to be late and in some instance not to attend the event or special function. Subsequently, over the years, I have come to realize that last minute shopping it's not the best of fun.
As a result, I definitely would not recommend last minute shopping to a consumer as a shopping tip. Unequivocally, shopping for special events and functions such as finding an appropriate could take several visits different stores.
Finding the appropriate could mean spending an entire day in a Hallmark store reading cards, it could also mean spending all day on the phone with friend or relatives discussing gift registry,preferences,stores,likes and dislike of the recipient. Ostensibly,the older you get the adults in your life expect two things from you one not to embarrass them in public and two if you don't have a gift to bring at least show up at special functions on time. Indeed, an earnest shopper as well as a meticulous shopper knows finding the right gift or card for a special function could require hours of shopping and visiting different stores.
Shopping done precipitously could result in purchasing the wrong size,color, or something way out in left field. Don't wait until the last minute to shop for a party,baby showers,bachelorette bash,birthdays,holidays ,and anniversaries avoid uncomfortableness and the feeling of being inadequate,plan the week before. On certain days, I have even shopped the day of the event that often leaves me feeling embarrassed ashamed, and guilty about my finances even worse depress. Incontrovertibly,last minute shopping in many instances could causes the consumer to become distraught,exasperated, and disconcerted not surprisingly all the emotions take away from the planned day. What's more important being punctilious for the planned event or arriving with a hand picked gift for the recipient or recipients?
Ultimately,the answer remains with the shopper (consumer) The answer should be non bias and based on the event as well as the recipient and not the shoppers wallet . The meticulous consumer that normally keeps track of birthdays, holidays,and anniversaries with calendars,through emails,P DA's ,Smart phones and other tech savvy gadgets of courses would not necessarily share the same feelings of a last minute shopper .
