MANILA —  A soldier and a civilian auxiliary force member were killed on Monday, while they were on a mission to pursue suspected communist rebels who attacked an Army detachment and abducted five policemen in Davao City last Saturday.
The soldier and the paramilitary man were killed while two other soldiers were wounded in two clashes with an armed group in Sitio Banban, Barangay Lumiad, Paquibato district in Davao City.
The Army’s 10th Infantry Division said on Wednesday, that the 84th Infantry Battalion troops were pursuing the rebel group believed responsible for the attack on the Army detachment at Sitio Quiman-anao, Barangay Salapawan, Paquibato district last Saturday, which also injured a CAFGU (Citizens’ Armed Forces Geographical Unit) Auxiliary member and a pastor. Too, Mayor expressed alarm over reports that the abducted policemen have been tied to makeshift animal cages.

MINAMIASO, Japan — A picturesque mountain village that depended on tourists, university students and retirees faces an uncertain future after last week’s devastating earthquakes in southern Japan: Will they come back? At least 14 people died in Minamiaso, including tourists and students, and the search for three still missing continued Wednesday. The second of two strong earthquakes that shook the region triggered major landslides in Minamiaso last Saturday, burying buildings and sending a bridge and cars into deep ravines. The village is part of the verdant Mount Aso region, about 50 kilometers (30 miles) east of Kumamoto city on the island of Kyushu. Many residents depend on money earned from renting apartments to students, three of whom died when apartment buildings collapsed.
Although the university says classes are expected to resume in May, residents are not optimistic.
In this April 19, 2016 photo, Koji Fuchigami and his wife Yachiyo look at the damage on the ground as they briefly return home to pick up valuables and fresh clothes to take to their shelter in Minamiaso, Kumamoto prefecture, Japan. The students provide a youthful mix in the graying village, and Hashimoto hired three for part-time jobs at his company. After being transferred from one city to another every few years while working for a major telephone company, Koji Fuchigami had set his goal: One day he would return to his native Kumamoto prefecture and have a house with a stove in the living room.
He achieved that goal 16 years ago, moving to scenic Minamiaso to build his dream log house in a newly developed area.
Now 62 and working part-time, he was still adding to it when the magnitude-7.3 earthquake struck Saturday.
Compared to older homes in the village, his seems undamaged, but a closer look reveals cracks in the foundation that a neighbor who is a carpenter says likely can never be properly repaired.
A mudslide blocked the car in the driveway, so the couple rushed away on foot with their next-door neighbor, whose daughter gave Yachiyo first-aid treatment. Rescuers search for missing persons at the site of a landslide in Minamiaso, Kumamoto prefecture, Japan Wednesday, April 20, 2016. The Mount Aso area is the top tourist destination in Kumamoto prefecture, known to many in Japan for its hugely popular black bear mascot, Kumamon.
About 16 million people visit the area every year, or more than 25 percent of the total visitors to the prefecture, for scenic drives and hikes around the world’s largest cauldron crater. Minamiaso is home to Aso Farm Land, a theme park with animals and a health spa, and is known for abundant mountain spring water, often considered holy in Japan, that visitors can collect and take home to drink. Hiroko Konishi runs an inn named Jikuya with her husband in a less-damaged area of the village where electricity has been restored.
PRESIDENTIAL candidate Mar Roxas on Wednesday thanked Leyte Representative and senatorial candidate Ferdinand Martin Romualdez for acknowledging his role in the government’s preparation for the onslaught of Supertyphoon “Yolanda” and rehabilitation efforts in its aftermath. In a media briefing after his campaign in Leyte, Roxas, former Interior and Local Government secretary, said Romualdez’ statement came as a surprise to him.
Romualdez issued the statement the same day Roxas and the rest of the candidates of the administration-backed “Daang Matuwid” coalition visited the Yolanda-struck towns of Palo, Leyte and Barugo and Ormoc City.
Martin Romualdez, an independent senatorial candidate, is a cousin of Tacloban City Mayor Alfred Romualdez, who lambasted the Aquino administration for deliberately neglecting his city for political reasons. The mayor, a nephew of former first lady Imelda Marcos, had a spat caught on video with Roxas during a meeting after the Yolanda onslaught. Roxas vehemently denied uttering the remarks in that context, stressing that the video was maliciously spliced.
Martin Romualdez, however, told Roxas to refrain from flaunting to the people, particularly the residents of Tacloban City, what he has done for the victims of Yolanda. He acknowledged that Roxas was there in Tacloban City, along with Defense Secretary Voltaire Gazmin, when Yolanda battered Western Visayas in November 2013.
Asked if a possible meeting between him and Martin Romualdez would follow, Roxas said he does not expect a meeting to happen.
But is the statement of Romualdez enough to clear his name that was tainted by allegations of delayed rehabilitation work?
The Leyte representative also thanked President Aquino for the help the government sent to his province and constituents. The Leyte House opposition leader added: “No one expected the magnitude of the disaster that struck Eastern Visayas and no one could have prepared for a disaster like that. LEGAZPI CITY, Albay — Former Sorsogon City Mayor Leovic Dioneda died of a heart attack on Tuesday night at the Sorsogon Medical Mission Group Hospital (SMMGH) in Sorsogon City.
Dioneda, a candidate for city mayor under the Partido Demokratikong Pilipino-Laban ng Bayan (PDP-Laban), was taken to the SMMGH on Monday after family members found him unconscious, said Benny Recibido, Philippine Information Agency provincial manager in Sorsogon. Dioneda was admitted to the SMMGH’s intensive care unit where doctors were able to stabilize his condition. He was once a Philippine Army captain and a member of the Reform the Armed Forces Movement (RAM).
VIENTIANE, Laos — Laos, one of the world’s last communist nations, elected its top government leaders Wednesday at a meeting of its newly seated National Assembly.
State-run news agency KPL reported that the 149-member assembly voted to endorse the selections made by the ruling Communist Party at its Congress in January, where then-Vice President Bounnhang Vorachit was selected as its new secretary general. The 78-year-old Bounnhang was elected president of the single-party state, while 70-year-old former Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Thongloun Sisoulith was made prime minister. Laos, a poor, landlocked country with a population of just 7 million, will have a higher-than-usual profile this year as it has its turn holding the annual chairmanship of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations as the organization grapples with territorial disputes with China in the South China Sea. There is nothing wrong with President Benigno Aquino III’s sister, actress Kris Aquino, riding the presidential chopper, Malacanang said Wednesday. Critics said the President and the Liberal Party are misusing public funds by allowing Kris, who has been campaigning for the ruling party’s standard-bearers Manuel “Mar” Roxas II and Camarines Sur Representative Ma.
While the photos have been reposted in different social media accounts, some say it originated from the Facebook page of the Municipality of Dalaguete. The page on Tuesday afternoon posted several photos of Kris and the presidential party at Casay Airstrip.
Another netizen said government assets should be used against rebels in Mindanao instead of campaigning. The President has been campaigning for Roxas, who has yet to top an election survey, during the past several months. DAVAO CITY – Valencia City Councilor Helen Bernal, a rice trader and owner of a warehouse in that Bukidnon city, denied allegations made by the New People’s Army that she has been hoarding rice and taking advantage of farmers through usury. Bernal, in a radio interview Wednesday afternoon, made the denial after New People’s Army rebels carted away 1,384 sacks of rice and several appliances, including two Sony flat screen TVs during a raid on her warehouse on Monday. She added that the warehouse had no security guard because her family had no known enemies in Bukidnon.  She said she was grateful that nobody was killed during the NPA attack. Ariel “Inda” Magbanwag, spokesperson of the NPA’s South-Central Bukidnon Subregional Command, issued a statement saying the rice confiscated from the warehouse of Bernal would be distributed to residents affected by the drought.
The Bukidnon provincial police said the warehouse secretary Connie Martinez told investigators that 60 armed men entered the compound and commandeered four trucks of rice with an estimated worth of P2.476 million.
Police added that the rebels also carted away a television set, a computer unit, a printer, 15 cellular phone batteries and P30,000 in cash. Magbanwag said the confiscated rice would be immediately distributed to villagers affected by the drought in Bukidnon. Magbanwag said more than a thousand sacks of rice would not be enough to end the hunger of the farmers hit by the drought but the rice would still be a minor relief. Magbanwag also accused Bernal of being involved in alleged anomalous transactions with the National Food Authority (NFA) and rice smugglers in Iligan City.
A bishop from Mindanao on Wednesday urged the government to respond to the power shortage and rotational brownouts in the region to prevent cheating in the May 9 national elections. Bagaforo said he hopes the government would be able to address the power outage issue, which has long been affecting Mindanao. He said that the continuous shortage of power supply is caused by the insufficient water supply to run their hydroelectric power source, which is the main source of electricity of Mindanao.
The rotational brownout in Mindanao has been attributed to the effects of the El Nino phenomenon. A red alert status was earlier raised by the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP) in Mindanao because of thin power supply. The bullets from an M-16 rifle that killed the two victims in the violent dispersal of farmers in Kidapawan City, North Cotabato last April 1 did not come from the police, an official told a Senate hearing on Wednesday. The two men killed in the incident were identified as Darwin Sulang, a 22-year-old farmer, and bystander Enrico Fabilgar, 30. Police Senior Superintendent Alejandro Gunao, chief of Crime Laboratory Office in Region XII, told the Senate committee on justice that the results of their ballistic examination showed that the empty shells recovered from the scene came from an M-16 rifle.
However, Cayetano noted that a video footage by a TV network showed that there was a policeman holding a shield and a long arm that he said looked like an M-16. He said he was ready to present the witness, whom he did not identify, except saying that this testfier was not a member of the police organization.
However, lawyer Ephraim Cortez of the National Union of People’s Lawyers, was not convinced that the bullets came from the protesters.
Zhao Xiaotian was sentenced to two weeks’ jail after admitting to slapping a police officer and spitting at another.
SINGAPORE–A former Mediacorp producer abused and used criminal force on police officers who had responded to a complaint by a security guard at Tanjong Beach Club in Sentosa a year ago. A district court heard that Zhao had gone to the club at about 1 pm that day to meet her friends.
At about 8.30 pm, security guard Zainal Abidin Amir Hamzah, 39, heard a commotion at the pool area and found that Zhao had removed her bikini top and was topless in the pool. Mr Zainal Abidin saw this and asked for her identity card, but Zhao did not cooperate and started behaving aggressively.
When Sgt Fahmi asked to see her identification, she placed her black bikini top on Sgt Fahmi’s shoulder, close to his face. When the two officers tried to place her into the backseat of the police car, she continued resisting and shouted at them, hurling vulgarities. While Sgt Hafiz was trying to restrain her in the backseat of the car, she spat at him twice. When a female sergeant arrived to provide back-up, Zhao remained hostile and used abusive language towards these officers. Pleading for leniency, he said the University of New York graduate worked in Mediacorp from July to September 2012, and from December 2014 to September last year. So wherever you are, whoever you might be, know that I’m sitting here on my white bench for two, waiting for the strength to tear it all down so I could build a new one for you. As a symbol of military force projection, nothing comes close to the aircraft carrier—especially the top-of-the-line American variety.
In pursuit of its stated goal of ensuring freedom of navigation in the South China Sea—parts of which Vietnam calls its East Sea, other parts of which the Philippines has renamed the West Philippine Sea—the American government signaled that it was ready to put military muscle behind its diplomatic position. Greater US military engagement in the region was prompted by Beijing’s much more aggressive approach to the maritime disputes in the South China Sea in recent months, Carter said. From the point of view of both the Philippine and the American governments, the carrier visit and the joint patrols are only the necessary next steps in the carefully calibrated response to China’s increasingly aggressive conduct. And yet, whether it is the Americans saying so (the commander in chief of the US Pacific Command telling the US Senate last February: “In my opinion China is clearly militarizing the South China Sea. It’s well past time for the key players in the region to help create the conditions that will allow the Chinese to save face on the South China Sea issue; American power projection only stokes the fire of nationalism that is forging the new future of the Chinese Communist Party.
No, Mayor Rodrigo Duterte, you cannot, as the saying goes, put the toothpaste back in the tube. But guess what, your uncouth and cruel remarks about regretting that you did not have first dibs at ravishing Jacqueline Hamill have been said, recorded, and passed on from cell phone to cell phone, and from computer screen to computer screen, and endlessly commented upon and argued over.
When you make light of the issue, or allow your rabid followers to erupt in laughter when you mention it, or refuse to take back your careless remarks, saying people will just have to “take me or leave me,” you are raking up painful memories and peeling away the scabs that survivors had tried to use to cover up their anguish.
At a press conference held yesterday at Miriam College, organized by a wide range of women and women’s groups outraged by Duterte’s series of offensive remarks about women, it emerged that memories of sexual exploitation lie just below the surface of every survivor’s consciousness. And then she came out with a bombshell: “I was myself molested as a child,” she revealed, and when the entire brouhaha over the mayor’s remarks erupted, “all the memories” of the trauma she experienced returned. The momentum that Duterte has managed to build up, the speakers at the press con said, may be due to the “disgruntled vote.” He is winning the support of Filipinos for whom the democratic experiment of the last few decades has brought nothing but frustration, or impatience with the processes and slowness of democracy. In less than a month, we will be trooping to the polls and making decisions about the future of the country—in the next six years in the short term, and even longer.
At this point, we don’t know who will emerge as president or vice president, or who will occupy any of the hundreds of positions at stake. My first reaction was surprise: After all, aren’t UP people supposed to be smart, and that “smartness” should apply to courtship as well?  Then I thought, Ah, maybe UP people are too nerdy and therefore clumsy and hopeless when it comes to courtship. Yet, we often distance ourselves from rape, seeing it as something that happens to women who are depicted as “asking for it.”  Trials of rape cases have been known to be even more trying for the victim than for the accused precisely because of this premise that certain people ask to be raped. I haven’t been to comedy bars for years, in part because I just don’t have the time, but even if I did, I would be reluctant to go. I hope that has changed in the comedy bars, but I suspect that this “rape as comedy” is actually still acceptable to many Filipinos. We have to go beyond political correctness and recognize the full extent of rape and the suffering it causes.  We have to recognize that rape involves an assailant wielding power over a victim.
Rape can happen between husband and wife; marital rape is in fact recognized as a crime in the Philippines and a few other countries. It can be between two people in a relationship, boyfriend-girlfriend or same-sex, again because of a mistaken notion that sex is a right, sometimes muddled with “who is paying for this dinner” during a date. This is why sexual harassment and rape in school settings will more often involve a teacher against a student, or a staff member. There are times when I think the forms of rape that I just mentioned are the most atrocious because they involve a betrayal of trust.
Rape, too, is common in times of conflict, with the victors taking the ultimate spoils of war.  We all know about the “comfort women,” but one of the unspeakable atrocities during World War II involved the Japanese soldiers raping (and in some cases, murdering) women in the final days of the war, as they realized that they were going to lose Manila.
Even more unspeakable, but something that has happened as well in the Philippines, is that of an invading or victorious army raping the vanquished men—an ultimate declaration of subjugation.
Years ago the Philippines began to require gender sensitivity workshops in government offices.  The responses have been mixed, but a common complaint is that the workshops have become dull and rhetorical.
As people understand the full extent of rape and sexual harassment, they will understand why rape is never something to laugh at, and hopefully they will protest rape jokes and comedy acts. Rape, as presidential aspirant Mayor Rodrigo Duterte has hopefully learned, is not a laughing matter. Three years ago, during a concert, comedian Vice Ganda warmed up with “fat jokes” at the expense of a TV anchor of the rival TV network, then carried away by the laughter, he slipped and said: “Ang hirap nga lang kung si Jessica Soho magbo-bold. After a firestorm in social media, Soho thanked the people who spoke up for her and added: “This should not be about me but about rape victims who suffer tremendously from this terrible crime. Throw back to the Gulf War in 1990, when then Foreign Secretary Raul Manglapus left a Senate investigation on the plight of women OFWs raped by Iraqi soldiers during the conflict. Throw back to the Second World War, when Japanese soldiers raped and killed many Filipino women. Throw back to the Philippine Revolution and the Philippine-American War, from which we have been taught that everything bad that happens to the Philippines and to Filipinos is always the fault of the enemy. Then of course, the catalog of rape in the Philippines will not be complete without mention of Gregoria de Jesus, wife of Katipunan Supremo Andres Bonifacio, who was raped by Col.
XI JINPING’S “China Dream”—his catchword for a future where the Chinese people “dare to dream, work assiduously to fulfill the dreams and contribute to the revitalization of the nation”—is unfolding in a new dimension.  An avid soccer fan, the Chinese president wants to make sure that his country is on a fast track to earn its proper spot in the top ranks of the world’s most popular sport.
To that end, he is committed to deploying China’s sizable manpower and planning resources.  He can also count on big financial resources devoted to the cause. The ultimate goal may well be to ensure that, owing to those well-laid plans, China will come to dominate the sport. In that vein, Beijing wants to increase the soccer-playing population to 50 million by 2020. That all sounds reasonable enough, not least as an antidote to the growing obesity trend among China’s youth.  Better yet, making his vision a reality will also require significant progress on combating air pollution given that soccer, for the most part, is an outdoor activity. Taking that view could be perilous.  After all, it wasn’t so long ago that people laughed out loud if and when someone suggested that China would become the world’s top exporting nation. That earlier reality check underscores two important points: first, China’s determination to pursue a goal, no matter how improbable it may seem at first, and second, the massive deployment of human and other resources can yield positive outcomes.
Xi’s implicit question is this: Why leave that large and growing pie to iconic (Western) brands, such as FC Barcelona, Real Madrid, the various London-based clubs, or Bayern Munchen?
It’s time to raise the flag of Chinese pride, preferably on behalf of all of Asia, and also in order to cash in to reap the benefits of the Chinese public’s growing market share. For individual teams, as well as entire national leagues or national teams, to become really successful in the sport is a pricey suggestion.  It helps if cash-rich billionaires, seeking approval of their status in new domains, discover soccer as a suitable stage to display their wealth and vanity. And just as Russian, American and Middle Eastern billionaires play an outsized role in England’s Barclays Premier League, there are plenty of billionaires in China who could add to the country’s glory by investing in soccer as a new battlefield. The suitably named “Ping An Chinese Football Association Super League” is an indication of what’s afoot.  And the current Chinese club champion—Guangzhou Evergrande Taobao Football Club (part-owned by the Alibaba Group)—as well as current news reports about record transfer payments (and salaries) to attract international star players, are another indication of what’s in the offing. There is no gainsaying that with its dizzying economic success and sudden accumulation of massive wealth, China now believes that it can just run roughshod over its neighbors and belittle or totally ignore world opinion.
Its angry reaction to the recent statement of the Group of Seven (G7) advanced economies expressing concern over China’s “intimidating, coercive or provocative unilateral actions” in the South China Sea only shows its arrogance and its penchant to deflect criticism of its policies by saying that such criticism constitutes interference in its internal affairs. In their statement, the G7 foreign ministers urged all states in the region to refrain from such actions as “land reclamations and building of outposts for military purposes” in the disputed areas. Its foreign ministry retorted that China has every right to build on the Spratly Islands, and reiterated that there are no problems with freedom of navigation or overflights in the important international shipping lane. In a subsequent statement, China said the military exercises of the Philippines and the United States were “unbeneficial” to the peace and stability in the South China Sea and would only exacerbate tension in the area. It mouthed its usual refrain that it is committed to resolve the sea conflict through direct bilateral talks with the claimant countries, but with a tacit condition: All claimant countries should recognize China’s full sovereignty over the disputed areas. How can the other claimants negotiate with China when it has already claimed, using ancient maps with dubious origins and its so-called nine-dash line, the whole of the Spratlys, even including the Scarborough Shoal which faces the shorelines of Zambales and the waters around which are traditional fishing grounds of Filipino fishermen and way, way far from mainland China?
The Philippines made the right move in elevating the case to the United-Nations-backed arbitration tribunal in The Hague as the only recourse by a small country to gain a just and peaceful settlement of the dispute. The tribunal, which has rejected outright China’s claim that it has no legal basis to hear the Philippine complaint, is expected to issue a definitive ruling within the year. But China, a member of the United Nations, has adamantly said that it does not recognize the authority of the arbitration tribunal and would not be bound by any of its decisions.
It is high time China proved to the world that it has no intentions of establishing regional hegemony and that it is not a threat to regional security by putting a stop to bullying small nations.
As a huge country with vast resources and one-fifth of the world’s population, China can do much mayhem, especially toward its small neighbors, and this is now being shown by its arrogant posture toward other claimant countries. The only recourse for a small country like the Philippines is to strengthen its alliance with world powers, such as the United States and Japan, to mitigate the restiveness caused by China’s belligerent attitude.
The new military accommodations extended by the Philippines to the United States and Japan should serve as a warning to China that it cannot continue its threat to the stability of the region without being confronted. The new data confirm that 2015 was the hottest year on record, and show that the global run of record-breaking temperatures continued through the first two months of this year. It seems that the precipitous decline in oil prices—by two-thirds over the last 18 months —has not, as many feared, encouraged increased consumption.
Meanwhile, renewable energy sources are receiving record amounts of investment—some $329.3 billion last year, according to research from Bloomberg New Energy Finance. Those committed to addressing climate change—from international organizations to local communities to individual citizens—must urgently build on the momentum acquired over the last year, by maintaining strong pressure on governments and companies to pursue the policies and investments needed to complete the break from fossil fuels. Recognizing the scale and urgency of the challenge ahead, Break Free is prepared to intensify its peaceful resistance against new and existing fossil-fuel projects.
In my opinion the charges made by the Ombudsman against former director general Alan Purisima and former Special Action Force (SAF) chief Getulio Napenas are inappropriate.
The only difference was the tip received by Purisima from US intelligence on the whereabout of Marwan, which he shared with Napenas. The reason for the many casualties on the side of the SAF commandos during the Mamasapano encounter was due to poor planning and implementation, not the illegality of actions attributed to the sharing of information between Purisima and Napenas. In an election where the race for the presidency is very tight, anything can happen, especially that to win one does not need a majority vote; a plurality of votes would be enough. If Binay wins, he was very creative when he was mayor of Makati in terms of providing social services.
The way the presidential election looks to me right now, it will be a three-way battle between Binay, Roxas and Duterte. LONDON — Global stock markets meandered round fairly narrow ranges Wednesday following a stellar start to the week that its roots in a rebounding oil prices. OIL PRICES: Crude has been at the heart of stock market moves this year and their rebound this week have been viewed as a sign that the global economic outlook has improved.
BEIJING — The Chinese government’s latest plan to perk up its slowing economy is based on the humble rice cooker and luxury toilet seats. The development plan issued this week strikes a blow for China’s consumers, calling for better products to help create an economy driven by domestic consumption instead of trade and investment. China makes most of the world’s consumer electronics, furniture and toys but domestic brands available at the prices its poor majority can afford are of uneven quality. The latest plan says its goals are part the ruling Communist Party’s campaign to make the state-dominated economy more productive by shrinking bloated companies in steel and other industries. Until now, official development plans have ignored deficiencies in products for the local market, treating the Chinese public as a source of labor rather than the rightful beneficiaries of economic growth. The party is trying to shore up growth that decelerated to a seven-year low of 6.7 percent in the latest quarter. A sales girl past by rice cookers mostly imported from Japan on display at a shopping mall in Beijing, China, Wednesday, April 20, 2016.
Until now, state media have ridiculed toilet seats equipped with heaters, water jets and other features as a frivolous fad imported from Japan.
But Chinese tourists have taken advantage of a weaker Japanese yen to embark on shopping sprees in Tokyo, where stores have refashioned their displays to attract them, hiring Chinese-speaking staff and expanding duty free services for tourists. The latest plan calls for better goods ranging from air purifiers and toys to paint and children’s clothing.

TOKYO  — Shares were mostly lower in Asia on Wednesday, as crude oil prices dipped and mainland Chinese markets were hit by sell-offs late in the day. Wilben Mayor, the Philippine National Police spokesperson, said the same armed group could have abducted, also last Saturday, five Paquibato policemen who were on mobile patrol in Barangay Mapula in the same area. The Philippines is not at war, there is no declaration of war, nor is there any existence of conditions of war.
A mountain village that attracted retirees, tourists and agriculture students to a college campus faces a grim future after last week’s devastating earthquake.
Both his house and office are severely damaged, and he says he is ready to fold his business and leave.
The neatly tended garden has deep cracks, and a pile of chopped wood for the stove is scattered in the backyard. They tried to stand up but kept getting thrown to the floor, as if in a washing machine, he said. Wall hangings fell and furniture flew around, but the damage appears limited to external wall cracks. He led the RAM blocking force at the Legazpi City airport during the height of the 1986 EDSA Revolution. His sister, a famous actress and television host, has recently joined the Liberal Party’s sorties in the Visayas.

Hindi galing sa baril ng (It did not come from the gun of) PNP (Philippine National Police)?” Cayetano asked again to which Gunao answered yes. Alexander Tagum, who has been relieved from his post as North Cotabato provincial police director, if any of his men saw anyone from the protesters brandishing an Armalite before or during the rally. She also freelanced with Global Executive Network and now works as a sales and marketing associate.
Hoping, praying, day-dreaming that somewhere in the near future, your path leads you here, beside me, seated, too. She nodded as tears welled up in her innocent and hopeful eyes; eyes that believed someday I would hold true to my promise. I learned how she wanted it built, adjusted so it could fit her better, but she wouldn’t even give it a try. She wanted to immerse herself in different places and cultures and people and all I did was hold her back. It’s why I believe that someday, I’ll find you and treat you the way you want to be treated; love you the way you want to be loved. What’s new is the context of tension exists, which we want to reduce.” This is rather like putting a gun on the table as people around that table raise their voices in argument. After all, how should Washington and Manila (and other capitals in the region) protest Beijing’s deceptive reclamation work in the disputed area? You’d have to believe in a flat earth to believe otherwise”) or the Chinese doing it (a senior foreign ministry official saying last year: “This has gone beyond the scope of freedom of navigation.
At the same time, the United States must find another way to reassure its allies in the region of its support, without highlighting its military capability. They are out there in the ether and in the arena of public opinion, and they have found their target. It is every woman or girl who has been the victim of violence, sexual harassment, rape and exploitation. You are making light of, making fun of, the threat that plagues every female, for whom fear of rape is ingrained in our consciousness almost from our earliest days.
June Pagaduan Lopez, a psychiatrist, expressed the opinion that Duterte is a “sociopath,” a person who follows no rules and will do or say anything to gain advantage for himself. And in the days remaining, we have to listen to our consciences and decide who among those asking for our votes will respect our rights as women and as citizens, and vote accordingly. Luna, told me that we urgently need workshops on courtship for our students, faculty and staff.
The uproar over the rape joke concerned the way it trivialized both the crime of rape and women.  I suggest we think harder about a broader, and paradoxical, context in which rape is seen sometimes as an unspeakable matter and at other times as something to joke about.
I remember that so many of the jokes cracked in these bars are about women and rape, sometimes complete with a mock demonstration.
The power can be real or imagined; in fact, the most heinous of rape and sexual harassment cases often involves someone who is actually very disempowered, even despised by peers, but who has delusions that he (or she) is high and mighty and irresistible. In these cases, a spouse has the mistaken notion that sex is a right, even an obligation, in marriage.  Believing that, the assailant uses force for the entitlement. In these cases, the assailant often argues that the victim was not a victim, that the victim wanted sex but was just being “pakipot” (coy), pretending to resist.
Note, too, the notorious cases involving priests, who are usually in a position of power over the victim.  Also unspoken are cases where someone is supposed to be extending psychosocial support and therapy and ends up pressuring the victim to have sex.
Social norms and rules will then become clearer about the unacceptability of rape in all its forms, and we must collectively declare: No is No.
First, Vice Ganda was man enough to apologize to Soho and the public; Mayor Duterte resorted to vainly explaining the context of the rape joke instead of issuing an apology. One of the victims who lived to retell their nightmares was Maria Rosa Henson of Pampanga, the first of the Filipino comfort women to speak up. I thought he was going to kill me, but he used his bayonet to slash my dress and tear it open. By 2030, it aims for the men’s national soccer team to be among Asia’s top teams and the women’s team to be “one of the world’s strongest,” according to a just released document jointly issued by the National Development and Reform Commission, Chinese Football Association, Sports Bureau and Ministry of Education. You could in fact argue that he is determined to take the planned economy concept to the soccer pitch—even though it has been replaced by a more market-oriented approach in other areas of the economy. Soccer could become another target in a long list of serious ambitions of China becoming No. Come to think of it, unless that plan succeeds, the world of club soccer remains a rare, but no less painful reminder of old colonial(!) structures. It conveniently sidestepped the fact that it is the one fomenting tension by building permanent structures on the shoals and islets in the contested archipelago, some of them claimed for many years by other countries like the Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia, Brunei and Taiwan.

Record-breaking global temperatures, plummeting fossil-fuel prices, historic investments in renewable energy, and global pressure to honor climate pledges are all coming together to create the ideal setting for this world-changing shift.
The UN climate agreement forged in Paris last December reconfirmed the level of 2 degrees Centigrade above preindustrial levels as a hard upper limit for global warming, beyond which the consequences for the planet become catastrophic. According to Nasa, global temperatures in February were 1.35 degrees Celsius above average, based on a 1951-1980 baseline. In fact, according to the International Energy Agency, global greenhouse-gas emissions and economic growth have already decoupled, with global-energy-related carbon dioxide  (the largest source of human greenhouse-gas emissions) having remained at the same level for the second year in a row. What it has done is deal a major blow to the profits of fossil-fuel giants like Shell, BP and Statoil. Following China’s announced moratorium on new coal-fired power plants at the end of last year, Peabody, the world’s largest coal company, recently filed for bankruptcy protection in the United States, after it could no longer make its debt payments, partly because of waning demand for coal. As a result, a cleaner, fairer and more sustainable future, powered entirely by renewables, is starting to become a real option.
Most governments are still clinging, in varying degrees, to destructive fossil fuels, with their volatile prices and devastating environmental impact, even as this dependence destabilizes their economies.
By backing campaigns and mass actions aimed at stopping the world’s most dangerous fossil-fuel projects— from coal plants in Turkey and the Philippines, to mines in Germany and Australia, to fracking in Brazil, and oil wells in Nigeria—Break Free hopes to eliminate the power and pollution of the fossil-fuel industry, and propel the world toward a sustainable future.
The key will be the strength and bravery of communities demanding that we keep fossil fuels in the ground and instead build a healthier and more just world, in which everyone has access to sustainable energy. To accelerate progress, we must confront those who are profiting from climate change and defend the interests of ordinary people.
In his testimony during the Senate hearing, Napenas said there had been an outstanding warrant of arrest for Marwan since 2009.
If the sharing of a vital information by a suspended officer with a SAF commander is illegal, it is for the prosecutors to prove. The coming presidential election is looking like it will be very close and could end up to be a contest between popularity and machinery.
But his closest opponent in that election, Erap, with only his popularity, gave P-Noy a run for his money.
But with due respect to those who are saying a revolution will ensue if he loses, come on, are we sore losers? Let’s give the “daang matuwid” another chance; maybe it will be more effective and efficient this time around. The idea that “if a form of service is not prohibited by law, it is allowed by law” guided him to giving quality social services to his constituents and to Makati’s sister-cities. And she can engage the services of good advisers to run this country and competent staffs to help her. 2, 2014, file photo, the statue of George Washington on the steps of Federal Hall faces the facade of the New York Stock Exchange.
Though the bank is not expected to announce any further stimulus measures, investors will be interested to hear what ECB President Mario Draghi might say at the news conference.
The country has been plagued by repeated scandals over shoddy or fake food, medicine and other goods. Forecasters see signs economic activity is improving but say overall growth could fall further this year. Asian stock markets are mostly higher, led by a rally in Japan, as investors were encouraged by Wall Street’s rally to its highest levels in recent months. Doubts persist whether the stimulus measures the bank has taken are really working, such as cutting interest rates and expanding a government bond-buying. Therefore, their continued detention is illegal under existing Philippine or any international laws.
PNP officers are also human beings who have rights and deserve humane treatment and similar attention from the CHR,” the police spokesperson said. Hindi ko inaasahan ito, wala kaming pag-uusap, wala kaming konbersasyon at hindi ko alam kung ano yung nasa likod nito.
Everyone, including them was overcome by Yolanda, the strongest tropical cyclone on record to make landfall in world history,” the senatorial hopeful said. State Department and independent agencies criticize the secretive regime for its poor human rights record. Whoever intends to invest in the Valencia rice fields would be required to negotiate with her to avoid bankruptcy,” Magbanwag said. Where did the bullet come from)?” Senate Majority Leader Alan Peter Cayetano asked Gunao during the ongoing investigation of the Senate committee on justice.
Did you look into all of the M-16s of the security team)?” Cayetano asked Gunao, who answered yes again. It wasn’t because I was unsure (I was) or because I felt there were still a lot of fish in the sea (there weren’t any, at least not for me), it was because I didn’t feel I was ready. I was happy for her, but I was also sad I wasn’t beside her as she saw life in a different light. Stennis on Friday as it was conducting military exercises in the South China Sea, it was not simply to give his Philippine counterpart, Defense Secretary Voltaire Gazmin, a ringside seat at the war games. It could work and prevent the intense argument from spiraling out of control—or it could fail and raise both the stakes and the risks. China has created artificial islands with lighthouses and facilities that can be readily reengineered for military use.
It is a political provocation”), the result is the same: The United States and China are increasingly committed to a militarization track. How can you expect and aspire to be the Father of the Nation when your behavior and your words seem designed to inflict hurt and recreate trauma? The thing about sociopaths, she added, is that “they can be very charming,” and can build fantasy worlds and convince others that everything they are doing is for everybody else’s good.
One of these is women’s rights, and we must decide in the few days left to us voters what we need to do to ensure that the decades of struggle to secure women’s rights, and to have the necessary laws enacted to protect and assure those rights, are put into practice.
Usually, the jokes would be about women (and gay men) supposedly resisting but wanting to be raped. The delusion here is that the assailant cannot understand how anyone can resist him or her. Sasabihin ng rapist, ‘Ipasa ang lechon.’ Sasabihin naman ni Jessica, ‘Eh nasaan ’yung apple?’” (It’d be difficult if Jessica Soho goes bold. Second, Vice Ganda’s rape joke had no connection to reality and a real victim; Duterte’s joke was made at the expense of an Australian missionary who was gang raped and killed during a prison hostage crisis in 1989.
Soccer skills, like culture or democracy, are nothing for which one can simply plan, or that can be issued as a “directive” from atop the political pyramid.  Such skills need to grow organically, over a long period of time. But it also included commitments to “pursue efforts” to limit warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius. Next month’s mobilizations against fossil-fuel projects are an important step in the right direction. FPJ’s popularity = Arroyo won); neither did those with well-oiled machinery (De Venecia’s machinery vs. Machinery did not work that time as local politicians jumped ship when they sensed that the administration candidate had no chance of winning. Yes, Duterte is a good leader, he inspires, and we can easily relate to him, but it is not for his supporters alone to decide the winner of this election. And maybe we will really feel the benefits of progress and prosperity with him as president. But with all the criminal charges waiting to be filed against him, if later on found by the courts to be true, then he should face the music.
We swept things under the rug, kasi sayang naman, kasi the good outweighed the bad pa rin naman. I was going to build her the white bench she always wanted, one where we’d sit and grow old together. Defense Secretary Ash Carter announced during a visit to Manila that for the first time U.S.
The unusual and high-profile visit, Carter’s second to a US Navy aircraft carrier in the same waters in less than six months, was also to telegraph to his counterparts in the Chinese security establishment the American game plan.
Because the fear of rape is the fear of every girl and woman, it is a threat that hangs over our heads, ever-present, residing in the deepest recesses of our minds. Vowing to spread the campaign to uphold women’s rights and spread the word about the need for gender consciousness, especially among our leaders, Sister Mary John said she is determined to continue the work even in the face of a Duterte presidency.
The rape of Gregoria de Jesus is one of the heart-rending episodes of the Philippine Revolution and deserves full and separate treatment. Judging by the latest data published by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, achieving that lower limit should be viewed as an imperative.
Grace Poe and Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte are popular; but Vice President Jejomar Binay and former Interior Secretary Mar Roxas have well-oiled political machinery. Worse, is the tinge of necrophilia in Duterte’s joke, because his reaction upon seeing the corpse of the victim was not of pity or even sympathy but the wish that as mayor he should have been first in line to violate the victim.
From the above alone, we should all feel disgust for rape and censure those who make light of it because rape is no laughing matter under any context. I wanted to ask her some questions, but the guard in the hall outside stopped us from saying anything to each other.
