It might be because, if he did, he would be at war with NATO and probably a large portion of the world.
In the end, North Korea was lost and the longest retreat in US military history was at the hands of the Chinese. Barbary War, War of 1812, Mexican American War, Spanish American War, Philippine American war, Panama War. I think they meant a neutron bomb, which uses fusion with the energy of an initial fission reaction. Indeed, no one on the planet has harnessed nuclear fusion in a controlled reaction for much more than a few seconds. If anyone in The West actually had a fully functioning brain, they would nuke those lunatics off the planet, entirely ERASE that religion, same as Africa, where Islam has infected the minds there too, and teach those sand-kissing, pigeon-mooning s-for-brains that they truly are NOTHING but mindless and meaningless fleas on a rat’s ass. If u think destabilizing the world economy will make the world safer then yeah whatever u say.
The Sikh would be able to do crap because your primitive Indian technology would be annihilated by the Chinese and so would your primitive culture.
Yet they had enough cannon to make the British run, and have them declare Nalwa would rule Asia.
I don’t know much about North Korea, but judging by their poverty and lack of oil, this all sounds very silly to me. William White Crow joins us for this very special episode of The Kev Baker Show in which he discloses details of his time in the secret space program. We often speculate on the show about something we call the “breakaway civilzation”, and William will give you first hand details of how far advanced this international group are, and its light years ahead of anything we hear about here on Earth! Fellow Truth Frequency Radio host Jim Ramm had a question shortly before the show so we brought Jim on and addressed it on the air.

After our network technical SNAFU last week I wanted to get Brit Gober back on to discuss Karatbars and his very unique view of the company. Long considered an innocuous drug — the Centers for Disease Control recommends it for travelers who find themselves abroad with the runs — loperamide has been swept up in America’s ongoing opioid epidemic.

Some of Poe’s staff members and friends were also spotted taking selfies as the campaign officially ends Saturday. Before this, Poe’s team also held a separate miting de avance in Urdaneta, Pangasinan, the home province of her adoptive father, the late action star Fernando Poe Jr. ZAMBOANGA CITY—A junior police officer, who was among those who responded to a report on the presence of armed men in the house of a mayoralty candidate in Zamboanga del Norte, was killed when his team was fired at while another policemen was injured, a police spokesperson said. Four persons were immediately arrested after the incident, including mayoral candidate Alson Chan of the Nacionalista Party, and at least four boxes containing cash and envelopes with sticker of Vice President Jejomar Binay and firearms had been seized.
When they reached Chan’s house, which is also in Barangay Camul, Usama and his two policemen-companions saw a vehicle coming out of the house. He said responding Army and police elements also seized seven firearms of various calibers, including rifles, and four boxes of cash placed inside envelopes.
The Commission on Elections presents to the media the vote-counting machines to be used in the elections on May 9 at its warehouse in Sta.
COTABATO CITY—Residents appeared hesitant to report to authorities alleged errors appearing in test-runs of vote-counting machines (VCM) in southern provinces, after the Commission on Elections warned of possible polls-related offenses when complaints were proven false.
Comelec Chair Andres Bautista on Thursday denied VCMs in test-runs switched votes from Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte to former Interior Secretary Mar Roxas. In this city, the VCM operation testing went smoothly with names of Philippine heroes, such as Emilio Aguinaldo and Antonio Luna, voted as “president.” At the Oblate of Mary Immaculate Building, reporters observed the VCM correctly read the trial ballots with shaded names of either Aguinaldo or Luna.
But in Tamparan, Lanao del Sur, the municipal board of elections inspectors (BEI) on Thursday videoed trial voting where a VCM failed thrice to read the ballots correctly. On a second trial, the oblong next to the name of Davao City Mayor Duterte was shaded, but still Roxas’ name appeared in the receipt. One of many residents present, Rohani Liawao, said the Tamparan testing was conducted in public, hours before the Muslim congregational prayer in the community. The same error has been noted on one of the VCMs consigned to Kiamba, Sarangani, reported Alena Gale Yabes, a lawyer working for Duterte.
Earlier, Comelec Commissioner Arthur Lim has also warned of legal consequences of false claims on social media, as possible violation of the polls fraud provisions of the Omnibus Election Code. Apparently reacting to social media posts claiming elections fraud occurred in overseas voting, Lim said making false claims about election fraud is considered an election offense. He was reacting to calls by some quarters for Poe to pull out from the five-way presidential race and give way to a “united front” led by LP standard-bearer Mar Roxas to stop survey frontrunner Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte from winning the May 9 polls. The decision to pick the country’s next set of leaders, he said, rests with the electorate.
With two days left before the general elections on Monday, Escudero stressed the importance of people’s participation in the democratic process. Three months later, Senator Grace Poe and her allies in Partido Galing at Puso (PGP) will return this Saturday to Plaza Miranda, just beside the Quiapo Church, to conclude their campaign. Poe also explained, in her speech during the kick off rally last February 9, why she chose to launch her campaign in front of the Quiapo Church. But her journey to the presidency was not a walk in the park as she was slapped left and right with disqualification cases to stop her disqualification bid. A petition seeking to unseat her in the Senate for being a foundling was filed at the Senate Electoral Tribunal (SET).
Several disqualification cases were also filed at the Commission on Elections (Comelec) seeking to stop her presidential bid over her citizenship and residency. The Comelec ruled in favor of the cases and decided to cancel Poe’s certificate of candidacy for president. But the SC reversed the Comelec’s decision and allowed Poe to the join the presidential race.
After surviving the disqualification cases, Poe faced more challenges as her detractors and rivals continued to question her and her family’s loyalty to the Philippines after she renounced her Filipino citizenship and swore allegiance to the United States when she decided to live and work there with her family. She returned to the Philippines after her father died in 2004 but she only renounced her US citizenship she was appointed as chair of the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board in 2010. As the campaign season heated up, her detractors had also accused her of allegedly owning mansions in the United States and using an alleged faked Social Security Number while she was in the US.
She promised to fight until the end despite alleged attempts for her to withdraw in favor of administration bet, former Interior Secretary Mar Roxas.
Robredo made this appeal after Marcos claimed that the LP has a “Plan B” if Mar Roxas, the party standard-bearer who is still trailing behind Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte, would not win the election. In an interview on Friday in Tacloban City, Marcos told the media that the ruling LP will ensure Robredo’s victory if Duterte wins.
If Marcos plans to convert supporters of Duterte against Robredo, she asked the senator not to spread lies. She stressed that even if Marcos’ claims were true, she would not let the party use her for election cheating. The Camarines Sur lawmaker’s numbers dramatically rose from once percent since the day she declared her vice presidential bid to 30 percent, overtaking or tying Marcos in the surveys.
LEGAZPI CITY—Police on Saturday seized at least 27 firearms during a raid on the house of a village chief in Iriga City, reports from the police’s Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) in the Bicol region said. Tejada, in a telephone interview, said CIDG operatives were tracking down Lucena, a suspected leader of a 10-member armed group in the city. Tejada said Lucena’s group is included in the police’s watchlist of local private armed groups. The Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB) on Saturday maintained that it has no jurisdiction over political advertisements during the campaign season, following the uproar over a negative advertisement against presidential poll front-runner Mayor Rodrigo Duterte that aired on ABS-CBN.
Villareal said MTRCB “affirms its regular policy of respect and deterrence” to the Commission on Elections (Comelec), which he said has the jurisdiction to “supervise and regulate” such advertisements the Omnibus Election Code, the Fair Elections Act, and Comelec Resolution No.
For its part, the Comelec said the airing of negative advertisements is permitted by election laws. Villareal assured the public that the agency “will always be solicitous in regard to the welfare of children, women, and other usually vulnerable sectors in media and entertainment” and asked to support the Comelec for an “honest, orderly, and peaceful” elections. Hackers who identified themselves as “Pinoy Hackers,” meanwhile, defaced MTRCB’s website on Saturday, accusing the agency of “turning a blind eye” on a supposedly “malicious political mud-slinging advertisement” against a candidate. Marcos toured Cavite and Tacloban City and Panabo was supposed to be his final stop for his Luzon-Visayas-Mindanao one-day tour. The senator did not elaborate on the security threat: “Put it this way, we had the warning and we’ll check first what’s going on. Marcos, who has warned of possible cheating in the elections in favor of his closest rival, Camarines Sur representative Leni Robredo of the Liberal Party, urged in his final bid to voters to protect their ballots.
NAGA CITY—Two village councilors in Tinambac town in Camarines Sur were wounded when they were shot by an undetermined number of suspects on Friday, police said on Saturday.
Ibis said Pineda and Corre were hit on their shoulders and were taken to the Bicol Medical Center in Naga City, some 50 km from Tinambac. Ibis said investigators cannot discount politics as one of the possible motives in the attack.
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. Century Pacific Food Inc., the company behind the Century Tuna and Argentina Corned Beef beef brands, secured a loan to partly pay for the acquisition of a Mindanao-based affiliate that makes coconut-based products like juice and oil. In a stock exchange filing Friday, Century Pacific said it had sealed a five-year P1.15-billion fixed-rate term loan.
Proceeds from the loan will be used to refinance short-term debt that was used to buy Century Pacific Agricultural Ventures Inc., which has an integrated coconut manufacturing facility in General Santos. It said that P1.65 billion of the amount had been converted to fixed-rate term loans, while P600 million remained short-term. Century Pacific Agricultural Ventures was already part of the company’s latest earnings report. Century Pacific, the country’s biggest  canned food company, said net income during the first three months of the year hit P636 million, up 45 percent from year-ago level. Century Pacific added that revenue was up 22 percent to P6.4 billion in the first three months of 2016.
Its first quarter operating income and earnings before interest, depreciation and amortization amounted to P860 million and P934 million, up by 40 percent and 43 percent respectively.
LOCAL stocks slipped Friday amid cautious trading in the region and as investors took money off the table on the last trading day before voting on May 9.
The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) and other involved state agencies will request Congress for an extension of the period given to formulate the proposed implementing rules and regulations (IRR) for the Tax Incentives Management and Transparency Act (Timta).
According to the DTI, the IRR is already 70 percent done but issues on data submission and evaluation of tax holiday applications continued to hound its completion, Trade Undersecretary Ceferino S.
He said the DTI, through the Board of Investments, has yet to reconcile certain concerns with the Department of Finance.
Within the BOI, trade officials also conducted regular meetings and came up with different versions of the draft IRR last January.
Global food prices went up for the third month in a row, reversing a four-year decline, according to the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO).
In its monthly Food Price Index, the FAO said the increase was driven mainly by rising prices of palm oil as well as cereals. The United Nations agency said, however, the outlook for world output for cereal, including rice, was slightly better for 2016. The latest forecast was “virtually the same as in 2015 and potentially on course to be the second largest global harvest ever,” the FAO said. FAO observed prices declining marginally for rice, as the forecast for worldwide production was almost unchanged at 495 million tons or one percent higher than the 2015 output.
The index is trade-weighted and tracks prices of five major food commodity groups in international markets—meat, dairy, cereals, vegetable oils and sugar. In the Philippines, the National Economic and Development Authority (Neda) said last Thursday domestic prices of rice were on a downward trajectory, partly due to the timely arrival of additional rice importation. The first time I heard this song, I was so moved that I immediately had chills down my spine, and couldn't get it out of my mind for weeks. As a youngster, I had never been satisfied with the radio, always searching for new, eclectic music and sharing it with my friends.
For those of you music industry officials who think this website is a contributor to the destruction of the music industry because it allows free downloads, you could not be wronger (not a word). E&C Press would like to know who you think was the a€?Pop Culture Stara€? of the month.

Habemas Papam, a€?We have a pope.a€? And the name of the man to emerge on the balcony in Vatican City is Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio of Argentina. The church leader that believing Roman Catholics call the a€?successora€? of the apostle Peter and a€?the vicar of Christa€? will go by the name of Pope Francis and is the first non-European pope in modern times, and the first from a developing country. He was elected by a conclave that overwhelmingly shares the conservative views of Benedict who has held sway as an enforcer of orthodoxy in the Vatican since 1982.
As John Allen of the National Catholic Reporter writes, a€?Either John Paul II or Benedict XVI appointed each of the 117 cardinals who will cast a ballot, including 11 Americans, so there will be little ideological clash.
Left-of-center media have descended into a feeding frenzy to attack the Conservative Political Action Committee (CPAC) in the wake of its 40th year of hosting a successful gathering for conservative activists. Isabella Penola, a 15-year-old from the Midwest, is a co-editor at Brumbargera€™s website for conservative high schoolers.
In the United States federal budget, the sequester or sequestration refers to budget cuts to particular categories of federal spending that began on March 1, 2013 as an austerity fiscal policy. The cuts are split evenly (by dollar amounts) between the defense and non-defense categories. Over the 2014a€“2023 period, the sequester would reduce planned spending outlays[note 2] by $995 billion with interest savings of $228 billion or a total of over $1.2 trillion in debt reduction.
Check back next month for plenty more details on the above information and more about overall first impressions as the fall season less than a week old. It was a month filled with announcements by the major networks and some notable cable series. As for the pilots ordered from the last few weeks they include: ABC announced it signed Rebel Wilson to star in the ensemble comedy, Super Fun Night. At a bare minimum, this EMP could theoretically damage electronic equipment south of the Korean DMZ.
Wars are about objectives, but I don’t think we can have a nuanced discussion on that.
A normal TND uses a heavy lead or uranium casing which absorbs the initial burst of neutrons. It would be like the 1800s almost instantly, except some of the old beater autos before electronics would weather the EMP just fine as long as they have points and a standard 12 volt battery?
Korea got those EMP bombs from Russia, I would believe if they got them from China, as to how can they develop their own bombs I will pick China as the first one to help them out.
The little faggots from the Sikh Regiment wouldn’t even be able to kill a little Spartan girl.
Plus many streams of consciousness: how people think and get caught in fundamentalisms in their mind.
We learn about the jump room to Mars and hear all about the truth of what is really going on above and below the surface of the red planet.
The two of them show how this book helps to fill in some missing puzzle pieces that connect the the assassination of President John F. The 24-year-old man, who had a history of opioid addiction, was not breathing and lacked a pulse. Four in 10 Americans say they know someone addicted to opioid painkillers such as hydrocodone and oxycodone, not to mention those who are addicted to illegal opioids such as heroin. We talk about various whistleblowers that claim to have not only been to the red planet but experienced other life forms on it. The Chinese are certainly rattling sabers with the introduction of the new Gold Backed Yuan!
Is it more physical, spiritual, or altogether a combination, projected in holographic form?  And if the latter is true, what does that say about the subjectivity of reality itself (including the recent slaughter of so-called “sacred cows” such as the shape of the earth or the legitimization of government space programs around the world)? How Hollywood sprinkles truth in movies and media about the beings we have been interacting with. This is a unique and powerful combination of products and strategies for emergency situations.
Provides extreme energy, focus, concentration, and sustained A-Game performance needed in an emergency situation. Can also be used to detoxify surfaces, act as an insecticide and is great for healing cuts.
Rogelio Alabata, chief of the Western Mindanao police information office, identified the slain officer as Senior Insp. Initially, the VCM unit recorded administration presidential candidate Mar Roxas in a voting receipt, when none of the oblong spaces beside the candidates’ names was shaded. Kaya minarapat ko rin na sa tapat ng simbahan ilunsad ang susunod na kabanata ng buhay ko,” she said. He said the LP will push for Duterte’s impeachment so that a party member will take over the presidency. Hanggang ngayon ‘yung po pinagpapaguran pa rin ng LP na manalo kami pareho ni Secretary Mar (There is no truth to that theory. Noong nag number one ako, the following day sobrang daming ridiculous black propaganda,” she said.
10049, the Comelec can require summary reports of TV advertisements, entertain ‘right to reply’ claims, and even summarily act on advertisements which are against ‘public morals.’ At the same time, advertisers and networks are to observe self-regulation in regard to content,” Villareal said. Being a creation of law, however, the MTRCB must necessarily act within the framework of mandates of individual agencies and of the courts,” Villareal added. Antonio Trillanes featured clips of Duterte’s controversial remarks and profanity-laced speeches, with children asking the public whether they wanted someone like the tough-talking mayor to be the next president. Alan Peter Cayetano was able to secure a temporary restraining order on the airing of the advertisement from the Taguig Regional Trial Court.
Juancho Ibis, Tinambac police chief, said San Antonio Village councilors Nomer Pineda and Loreto Corre were on board a motorcycle and were on their way to the town center at 3 p.m. 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. This was attributed to strong demand  for its branded products and the “subdued” prices of key raw materials. Sales from the three branded businesses—marine, meat and milk—grew by 15 percent year-on-year and accounted for 78 percent of total sales. It saw discussions revolving around the specific data and information that should be submitted by companies to investment promotion agencies (IPAs), IPAs to the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR), BIR to the Bureau of Customs and DOF, and IPAs to the National Economic Development Authority (Neda). The BOI and the DOF have been meeting with the concerned agencies and the other IPAs to reconcile and consolidate inputs on a number of concerns on the proposed IRR provisions,” Rodolfo said. Several meetings were also held with the IPAs and with the interagency technical working group composed of the BOI, DOF, BIR, BOC and the Neda. We wanted to ensure the IRR mapped out a robust mechanism that would show accurate and most-up-to-date information. With the deep crisis the world is in, there is a strong need for hope and a greater need for change. As a senior in high school, I saw the emergence of an excess of music blogs and thought, "I could do it better". I try to infuse Jillboard Top 100 with as much comedy as possible, which is what sets this site apart from others.
The only free downloads posted on this site are from independent artists who are trying to spread the word about their music. Please realize that it is extremely illegal for me to do so, and I am not looking to get sued for millions by participating in this. It's overly sexual, almost scary sexual (if you've seen "Not Myself Tonight" music video, I think you will agree).
I hope your kids hear this when they grow up and vomit everywhere at the thought of their mother's "woohoo". Comic Book News presented this past month with more steps into newer formats, as Twitter has never been busier with the various Tweets from this past month across the board.

The Blue Devils swept the season series against the Tar Heels after winning this game at UNC.
On the heels of NCAA Mena€™s Basketball tournament, March Madness, Duke faced off against UNC. The first part of the month belonged to California where in Indian Wells Maria Sharapova claimed another championship. Another story made its own headlines on the other side of the political Aisle was that in the middle of the month the infamous video from a closed door Boca Raton fundraiser during the 2012 Presidential Campaign for Mitt Romney, a€?47%a€? comments came forth and revealed himself to the country as the person who recorded those comments.
Between the Emerald City Comic Convention, news came out that Geoff Johns would be leaving his tenure on Green Lantern, his long running DC title, and a flagship book of DCU: The New 52. For details on this, check below for some highlights from the first day of the event that was not complete as of press time. DC was caught by surprise because it already went to press with a five-page Action Comics preview in the back of its weekly books in March to showcase the new creative team, which also included Tony S. Coming soon, Entertainment & Press is developing a Twitter themed section that just kicked off in the pages of this very issue.
This will tie into the in-continuity series of the hit ABC fairytale adventure show, Once Upon A Time. The much-awaited choice is something of a surprise, as the new pope was not foreshadowed prominently on the short lists of various experts, though the 76-year old was said to be the runner-up to retiring Pope Benedict in the 2005 conclave.
Like his predecessor Pope Benedict XVI who resigned last month, the first head of the Catholic church to do so in 600 years, Pope Francis is said to be theologically orthodox and socially conservative. No matter what happens, the church almost certainly won't reverse its bans on abortion, gay marriage or women priests.a€? After all is said and done, a new Pope has emerged. The cuts were enacted by the Budget Control Act of 2011 and initially set to begin on January 1 but that date was postponed by two months by the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012. Some major programs like Social Security, Medicaid, federal pay (including military pay and pensions) and veterans' benefits are exempt. The blunt nature of the cuts has been criticized, with some favoring more tailored cuts and others arguing for postponement while the economy improves.
Below is a majority of the moves made by all sorts of networks including NBC, CBS, The CW, ABC, and FOX. At higher power levels, a real EMP device can melt any electronic device or system within hundreds of miles.
This allows the gamma rays to spread out before they hit the atmosphere, creating a huge area of effect.
Only that just saying it would be war against NATO and a large portion of the world is not the end of discussion. If a state has open carry and every man does not, versus another place where they do you can predict the outcome.


Militarily America could win any war with great ease, but that is not in the interests of bankers or corporations.
A neutron bomb uses a thinner casing which allows the neutrons to escape which takes the form of neutron radiation which zaps any human within a given radius depending upon the power of a given bomb, with like 8000 rads of radiation which would immediately incapacitate anyone caught in the burst and cause 100% mortality within 2 days. Taliban’s main fight was to oust the warlord system that supported, post-soviet regime. I mean a country that is isolated from trade from the rest of the countries, where do they get their materials from? What is even more alarming is their announcement that there can be NO conversion to or from US dollars. Reptilians, Raptor beings, Non Human entities, Insects, Greys, tall whites and so much more.
A book that exposes the hidden hand of power, politics and propaganda behind America’s health crisis.
Hindi po ibinibigay sa iisang tao lamang ang monopolya ng magandang intensyon para sa ating bansa,” Escudero said in a radio interview. Marami ngang nagsasabi ‘naku, baka hindi tayo magkasya lahat doon,’ pero simboliko ‘yon e para sa akin,” she said in an interview in Pandi, Bulacan on Friday.
Napatanuyan ko naman na walang pwedeng gumamit sa akin (I don’t agree with the decisions of LP all the time. In a statement, ABS-CBN said it had nothing to do with the production of the ad, and that it was “duty-bound to air a legitimate ad” in accordance to guidelines of the Comelec. 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. Also threshed out was BOI’s evaluation of income tax holiday applications of investors and the conduct of cost-benefit analysis by Neda. At the same time, there was a need to make certain that … no unnecessary procedural burden was passed on to the investors,” Rodolfo said.
You should savor the artists that give out their music for free, but also support your favorite artists by buying their music. She needs to stop this meaningless electronic crap and go back to CHRISTINA - I think we can all agree that "Come on Over" and "What A Girl Wants" were her peak.
