The idea of playing with numbers goes against the serious nature of most math teaching, but it is actually much more effective than grind memorization. There is much more on using the system for finding Square Roots, creating the 20×20 Times Table, and multiplying numbers mentally. Squares go right through the biggest numbers on the times tables and make it easy to multiply the larger numbers together, which is where students tend to struggle most. The two tools using Number Wheels for anchoring addition are ways to add 5 to any number, and Number Wheels that show the cool patterns of numbers that add up (in the Ones) to 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1. The new edition is out now, April 2013 with over a hundred changes, corrections, new images and additions.
MisterNumbers shares an awesome brand new Right Brain pattern that young kids can write out the squares of numbers 1-50 in under 3 minutes (about as fast as they can write them).
A dial pad on any phone is a great aid in learning the times tables for the Ones, Threes, Sevens, & Nines. Threes times table revealed on a phone dial pad when the phone is turned to the left 90 degrees. Mister Numbers replies: I very intentionally give the Ones-Digits a nickname of the Onesies, and the Tens-Digits a nickname of the Tensies. CLICK HERE to watch the video that shows how to create the Threes, Fours, Sixes, and Eights on the EZ Times Table.
Kindergarden students have created and understood the whole times table up to 10 x 10 on the EZ Times Table. The Tic Tac Toe Times Table app had a price tag today on iTunes, so I am extending the FREE offer for all 5 of my Right Brain Math IPhone apps through Tuesday Oct 11th. What are parents and teachers saying about the Right Brain Math book by Tom Biesanz, aka MisterNumbers, on Amazon? In Right Brain Math: A Fun, Easy, Visual Approach to Math the author makes learning basic math fun and easy by using a visual approach.
I highly recommend MisterNumbers Pattern Play Math DVD as a companion to the Right Brain Math book.
An easy, visual way to learn multiplication and division by playing with patterns, and making friends with numbers. Vice Presidential bets Senator Bongbong Marcos and Camarines Sur representative Leni Robredo. Marcos’ camp repeatedly raised the number of undervotes for the position of vice president in every certificate of canvass opened during the canvassing at the House of Representatives. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump speaks at the National Rifle Association’s NRA-ILA Leadership Forum during the NRA Convention at the Kentucky Exposition Center on May 20, 2016 in Louisville, Kentucky.
WASHINGTON — Donald Trump reached the number of delegates needed to clinch the Republican nomination for president Thursday, completing an unlikely rise that has upended the political landscape and set the stage for a bitter fall campaign. Trump was put over the top in the Associated Press delegate count by a small number of the party’s unbound delegates who told the AP they would support him at the national convention in July.
Trump, a political neophyte who for years delivered caustic commentary on the state of the nation from the sidelines but had never run for office, fought off 16 other Republican contenders in an often ugly primary race.
But millions of grass-roots activists, many of them outsiders to the political process, have embraced Trump as a plain-speaking populist who is not afraid to offend. Steve House, chairman of the Colorado Republican Party and an unbound delegate who confirmed his support of Trump to the AP, said he likes the billionaire’s background as a businessman. Hours before clinching the nomination, he announced the abrupt departure of political director Rick Wiley, who was in the midst of leading the campaign’s push to hire staff in key battleground states.
His hiring about six weeks ago was seen as a sign that party veterans were embracing Trump’s campaign. Some delegates who confirmed their decisions to back Trump were tepid at best, saying they are supporting him out of a sense of obligation because he won their state’s primary. Cameron Linton of Pittsburgh said he will back Trump on the first ballot since he won the presidential primary vote in Linton’s congressional district.
Trump and his wife, Melania, descended an escalator into the basement lobby of the Trump Tower on June 16, 2015, for an announcement many observers had said would never come: The celebrity real estate developer had flirted with running for office in the past. His speech then set the tone for the candidate’s ability to dominate the headlines with provocative statements, insults and hyperbole. The events drew protests too— with demonstrators sometimes forcibly ejected from the proceedings. He lost the Iowa caucuses in February, falling behind Cruz and barely edging Rubio for second.
As with other aspects of his campaign, Trump upended the traditional role of money in the race. Trump entered a new phase of his campaign Tuesday night by holding his first major campaign fundraiser: a $25,000-per-ticket dinner in Los Angeles.
The NBOC ended the canvassing tonight with Agusan Del Sur, for a total of 39,288,724 votes canvassed for president, and 38,022,772 votes for vice president.
Marcos sustained his hairline lead even though votes came in from Robredo’s bailiwicks such as Camarines Sur and other Visayas provinces. The camp of Camarines Sur Representative Leni Robredo on Thursday expressed confidence that their candidate will be proclaimed vice president after the Congress finishes the canvassing votes for the presidential and vice presidential elections. Robredo was leading the Congress tally at the close of the first day of canvassing by more than 200,000 votes, but Marcos grabbed the lead and overtook her by more than a million on Thursday evening.
Hernandez said separate proclamation was not likely because COC was considered as a single document. Citing jurisprudence, election lawyer Romulo Macalintal said it would be unfair for voters who voted for vice president if presumptive President-elect Rodrigo Duterte would be proclaimed first. COCs have already been canvassed in known Marcos bailiwicks in the so-called “Solid North” like Ilocos Norte and Ilocos Sur, where the son and namesake of the late dictator has received 298,786 and 316,121 votes respectively, over Robredo’s 3,704 and 14,140. The senator also won in La Union (338,455), Pangasinan (832,711), Nueva Ecija (541,980), Kalinga (64,023), Ifugao (35,256) and Mt. Robredo, meanwhile, took Southern Leyte, Surigao del Norte, Bohol, Aklan, Tawi-Tawi, Capiz, and Masbate, among other provinces. She was leading the official tally at the close of Congress’ first day of canvassing on Wednesday by over 200,000 votes.
Leading VP candidate Leni Robredo during the thanksgiving mass in Ateneo Church of the Gesu. Brillantes noted that Duterte can be called presumptive President and clear winner in the presidential race because his closest rivals have already conceded defeat to him, which, he said, was not the case for the vice presidency.
But Brillantes said he would be the first to congratulate Robredo should the Congress proclaim her as the winner in the vice presidential race. Robredo was leading Marcos by more than 200,000 votes in the unofficial tally of votes and at the close of the first day of Congress canvassing. Presumptive President-elect Rodrigo Duterte speaks during a press conference in Davao City on May 26. DAVAO CITY—With lawmakers making a beeline for the camp of Rodrigo Duterte, the presumptive president-elect reminds them that they owe their loyalty to the Constitution and not to him. Duterte said the lawmakers who had jumped ship to become members of Partido Demokratiko Pilipino-Lakas ng Bayan (PDP-Laban), the political vehicle he rode in his ascent to the presidency, should place their loyalty to the country. With the shift in political allegiances at the House of Representatives, PDP-Laban is said to have gathered more than 260 allies of the expected 290 members. PDP-Laban has signed coalition agreements with the 32-member party-list bloc, Nacionalista Party, Nationalist People’s Coalition, National Unity Party, and Lakas-CMD.
Duterte also warned his Cabinet appointees not to use their posts to launch their political careers. The incoming President said once his Cabinet appointees used their posts to give favors, it would open the floodgates of corruption. His official family so far is composed of former government officials, law school classmates, and key persons during his presidential campaign. Senator-elect Leila De Lima, who is serving as canvassing counsel for leading vice presidential candidate Leni Robredo, on Thursday hit the camp of Sen. De Lima, a former justice secretary, made this manifestation after Marcos’ lawyers Didagen Dilangalen and George Garcia kept on pointing out the undervotes in the vice presidential race during the second day of the canvassing of votes at the House of Representatives.
As of Wednesday night, Robredo led the official count on the first day of the canvassing, garnering 3,576,643 votes, ahead by 295,492 votes over Marcos, who got 3,281,151. KIDAPAWAN CITY—At least 29 suspected drug dealers were arrested in simultaneous raids in nine towns and a city in Sultan Kudarat province before dawn Thursday. Senior Superintendent Raul Supiter, Sultan Kudarat police chief, said police assets have conducted test operations against the suspected illegal drug dealers before the dawn raids backed by 25 search warrants. The raids and buy-bust operations were conducted in Tacurong City and the towns of Isulan, Bagumbayan, Colombio, Esperanza, Lambayong, Lebak, Lutayan, Kalamansig and President Quirino. Supiter said a total of 268 sachets of suspected shabu, a half kilogram of dried marijuana leaves and drug paraphernalia were confiscated from the suspects.
DAVAO CITY, Philippines—(UPDATE) A technical problem forced a Manila-bound Cebu Pacific plane to return to the Davao International Airport on Thursday afternoon.
Cebu Pacific Flight 5J 956 left Davao City at 4:41 pm but the aircraft had to return 20 minutes after take-off. The passengers were told to disembark and wait at the departure area while the technical ground crew checked the plane. Passengers of the aircraft were disappointed as their concerns were not attended immediately. At first, only one staff at the departure area entertained the passengers’ concerns, causing long lines. Other passengers who have urgent business in Manila were rebooked to a later flight but those who were not accommodated were booked for Friday. So bad is the Philippines’ drug problem that Filipinos overwhelmingly voted into the presidency a man whose main platform centers on stamping out crime, particularly the trade in illegal drugs, within three to six months after assuming office.
The deaths of five people who attended the open-air Closeup Forever Summer Concert at the Mall of Asia on May 21 suggest the pervasiveness of the drug culture and the easy access to highly regulated substances even in very public venues.
The five fatalities—aged 18 to 33, one an American—were found unconscious at different places in the concert grounds; they died in hospitals hours later. Expressing regret over the deaths, the concert organizers said they were cooperating with authorities in the investigation and that “very stringent measures and precautions” were in place during the event.
Police have disavowed responsibility for the incident, citing an internal arrangement with organizers about taking charge only of perimeter security. Dancing to and otherwise enthused by the music, some 14,000 young bodies gratefully partook of cold drinks reportedly being passed around. Investigators are looking into reports that the five had taken party drugs that contain a cocktail of shabu, the recreational drug ecstasy, and cialis, a drug used to treat erectile dysfunction. And the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) must push for an intensive investigation: Should a new police protocol be drafted to make law enforcement more effective even in private and ticketed events? It seems good news that we are again the fastest growing economy in Asia, and possibly the world, with the 6.9 percent reported annual growth rate of our gross domestic product (GDP) in the first quarter. Three world economic and financial giants recently came out calling for a serious review of how economies measure their performance. With all its limitations and shortcomings, GDP remains the most widely used measure for assessing the performance of economies worldwide. At the aggregate level, growth in GDP says nothing about how output and incomes are distributed.
At the individual level, even economists themselves have long questioned the premise that increased income or access to goods and services leads to improved wellbeing or greater happiness.
In other words, we humans can increase happiness not just from consuming more goods and services. A true anecdote from the Kingdom of Bhutan, where its former king had prominently championed the concept of gross national happiness, drives the point home quite clearly. With world-renowned economists now calling for it, we may soon see serious efforts to revisit our standard measures of economic performance, or more importantly, economic wellbeing.
Stiglitz aptly summed up why we need to find a better measure: “What we measure informs what we do. When the renowned Filipino sculptor Eduardo Castrillo passed away last week at 73, news reports about him included the enumeration of many of his bigger-than-life metal monuments—historical, sociopolitical, religious—that are familiar to the public.
But there was no mention of the one at the Bantayog ng mga Bayani compound in Quezon City, where heroes and martyrs who fought against tyranny during the dark years of the Marcos dictatorship are memorialized.
Soaring to the sky, this 45-foot bronze monument by Castrillo depicts a mother trying, with one hand, to raise from the ground a fallen son, while her other hand is raised to the heavens in defiance. If you were one of those who experienced the excesses of the Marcos regime and the cruelty that defined it, if you lost loved ones—family members, friends, colleagues and comrades—during that despicable era, you would shudder at the memory when you look up and lay your eyes on Castrillo’s work. The Bantayog complex now includes a P16-million building which houses a small auditorium, library, archives and museum.
I wish I had interviewed Castrillo long ago to ask him how he came to depict the defiant mother and her fallen son in that way, what inspired him, what he knew about the persons for whom his piece of art in bronze would be dedicated.
What I learned just now is that the Bantayog monument was commissioned by a donor for a seven-digit price. A short distance from the monument to the heroes and martyrs is a black granite wall of remembrance where the first 65 names were etched in 1992. All of them were opposed to the martial law regime of the dictator Ferdinand Marcos and considered freedom advocates. The monument, the commemorative wall and other structures at the Bantayog complex are dedicated to the nation’s modern-day martyrs and heroes who fought against all odds to help restore freedom, peace, justice, truth and democracy in the country.
Bantayog plans to expand its information activities that would include publishing biographies, dissemination of informative materials, film showings, roving exhibitions and museum tours.
Like many of his bronze creations that reach out to the sky, may Castrillo’s spirit reach out and soar to the heavens. The centuries-old proverb “For want of a nail” has many variations, but these tell us only one thing: that a seemingly small or unimportant act of omission can lead to grave consequences. If I may draw a parallel to the proverb, President Aquino was unhorsed, his anointed successor Mar Roxas did not make it in the presidential election, and the chance to continue the daang matuwid legacy was lost. Instead of allowing his spokespersons to react and defend him awkwardly for every public criticism, P-Noy could have done a regular TV “fireside chat” to talk directly to families in the comfort of their homes, to explain significant happenings in clear, intimate language without being misquoted, and without the adulterated bias of irresponsible media reporters and editors.
US President Franklin Delano Roosevelt was the first president to effectively use radio to communicate directly with citizens in their own homes.
Direct communication with the people was specially needed to quell damaging rumors on Facebook and other social media concerning sensitive issues that mattered, such as the truth about the “Yolanda” recovery efforts, the truth about the Mamasapano clash, and the truth about the breakdown of MRT trains.
The people’s frustration with the Aquino administration resulted in a mass movement for change. In the area of public works, Secretary Rogelio Singson was a giant of a man, working quietly and tirelessly in building more than 12,000 kilometers of road infrastructures and breaking down the culture of corruption in public works. Now that the daang matuwid kingdom is lost, the President is starting to report his remarkable achievements in social and traditional media, and people are wondering why they never knew these things before. The best way to prevent an image crisis is to build, enhance and protect your reputation with honest storytelling from the very start of your public life. From a democratization standpoint, one of the crucial questions on the 2016 presidential election that need to be answered is how an in-your-face authoritarian candidate like Rodrigo Duterte triumphed in a consolidated democracy. The first reality is that Duterte’s real uniqueness is not that he is a political outsider initially unsupported by major political parties and big business. Instead, his uniqueness is that he is the first ever presidential candidate of this country who explicitly threatened to become a dictator if democratic institutions stand in his way once he is elected president. Just to put his uniqueness in perspective, not even Ferdinand Marcos, whether the senior or the junior, ran on such an openly and brazenly prodictatorship platform.
And because he won, he will be the first president of this country who can actually claim to have the electoral mandate to end democracy if he finds it necessary to do so. Taking a dark turn on the democratic ideal of keeping one’s electoral promises, he can stare Philippine democracy in the eye as he puts a gun to its head and rhetorically asks it: Did I not vow that I will close down Congress and set aside the courts and make myself a dictator if things do not go my way? The second reality is that Philippine democracy under Benigno Aquino III is a stable, consolidated democracy. While this administration is by no means an unqualified success story, modest improvements in key economic and governance indicators have been achieved under Mr. These also include technological (the elections were the country’s first social media elections and only the Duterte camp fully understood this fact), cultural (Filipino rebelliousness against incumbents or Filipino gullibility to messiahs), psychological (fascist attraction or Freudian id release), international (global resurgence of authoritarianism), and institutional (president is elected by plurality vote) explanations.
Riding on the crest of Duterte’s spectacular surge, these analyses suddenly saw the weaknesses of Philippine politics, economy, society and democracy in a new and much harsher light. But such analyses ignore one of the basic insights of democratic theorizing on elections in a competitive regime: that elections create identities, narratives, paradigms and, yes, zeitgeists, and not just the other way around. Surprisingly, alternative explanations to Duterte’s striking victory in a consolidated democracy might lie in studying the lessons of the equally dramatic triumph of another candidate in the vice-presidential race: the come-from-(way)-behind victory of Rep.


Gene Lacza Pilapil is an assistant professor of political science at the University of the Philippines Diliman.
This has always been one of the major deterrents to investment, foreign and local: an administration that thinks only in six-year terms, and changes the commitments of its predecessor.
I’m no expert on this, but if I were Duterte, I’d do three things: 1) Move general aviation and the Air Force to Sangley Point immediately. There are other areas where change is needed, too, and truly opening up the economy by removing the constitutional restrictions on foreign equity is one of them. The bill to create a Department of Information and Communications Technology was one of them, but this has now been signed by Mr. Social media has changed the way we live, from how we interact with other people and  how we articulate our views in life to how we purchase things. I was 12 when I first made a social media account, not because I needed it, but because my friends had one. Have you ever had that bizarre feeling of your phone vibrating in your pocket when in fact it’s not? Social media is a constant stream of information and entertainment that hooks users to keep on scrolling. When I temporarily gave up social media, I learned that I have more free time than I have ever thought. Research shows that young adults who frequently check their social media are most likely to have sleep problems. You may have hundreds or thousands of followers, yet still feel the agonizing buzz of crowded loneliness. During the period of my social media fasting, I realized that meeting friends as opposed to chatting with them online is more expensive. Checking social media becomes unconscious behavior, at least for me, but after my unplugging, I can say that I have fewer cravings.

Some, if not many, Filipinos think that the decision by presumptive President-elect Rodrigo Duterte is “flawed.” Why? Worse, political patronage is a travesty of the “change” that Duterte has promised to pursue under his administration. However, Villar can be much better than the present public works secretary whose projects, like the notorious reblocking, road widening and double asphalt overlay, are not needed. It would better serve the presumptive President-elect if he reconsiders his offer to the young Villar who just won a seat in Congress. Before it’s too late, presumptive President-elect Rodrigo Duterte should listen and take seriously the criticisms hurled by media on his handpicked, would-be Cabinet secretaries. Duterte might suffer the same fate as that of outgoing President Aquino whose loyalty to his friends, relatives and closed associates tarnished his image and further eroded his popularity. The majority of Filipinos are behind Duterte 100 percent and wish him to succeed in office as president of the Philippines. THE LOCAL stock barometer ended a three-day run-up on Thursday, weighed down by a $250-million JG Summit share-sale and fresh valuation jitters. JG Summit, the day’s most actively traded company, has a 6.88 percent weight on the PSEi basket.
Value turnover at the local stock market swelled to P18.63 billion because of the JG Summit deal.
With JG Summit’s decline, the holding firm counter fell by 2.17 percent while the financial, industrial, services and property counters all declined. There were 109 decliners that overwhelmed 65 advancers at the market while 56 stocks were unchanged. MPI also declined by 2.59 percent while Globe, SMIC, SM Prime, Metrobank and Jollibee all tumbled by over 1 percent. Across the region, stock markets were mostly higher alongside an increase in global oil prices. Fiji Airways and Jetstar on Thursday announced the launch of an interline partnership to provide seamless, single ticket air travel from the Philippines to Fiji, and onwards in the South Pacific for the first time. The new commercial agreement between the Fijian flag carrier and the Jetstar Group of branded airlines including Jetstar Airways, Jetstar Asia, Jetstar Japan and Jetstar Pacific, will connect Fiji Airways’ newly launched Singapore to Nadi route, with more than 21 destinations on Jetstar’s network from Singapore, including the Philippines.
Fiji Airways commenced twice-weekly direct flights to Singapore on 5 April 2016, creating the first ever direct flights between Southeast Asia and the South Pacific. While the agreement covers all 73 destinations served by the Jetstar Group, including Jetstar Airways in Australia, the immediate take-up will be for Jetstar destinations from Singapore. Fiji Airways and Jetstar customers will be able to book flights and check-through baggage when purchasing tickets from Fiji Airways’ sales channels, including its website, online travel sites, sales offices and reservation centers. This deal leaves Gokongwei with about a little over 58 million shares or about 0.8 percent stake in JG Summit, which is into snackfood and beverage manufacturing, airline, petrochemicals, property and banking businesses. SINGAPORE, Singapore — Brent crude passed $50 a barrel for the first time in 2016 on Thursday after data showed a fall in US crude inventories, adding to expectations of a tightening global market.
The gains came as markets digested news that US commercial crude oil inventories fell by 4.2 million barrels in the week to May 20, according to US Department of Energy data.
Both pricing standards have been edging close to the $50 mark for a fortnight but a strong US dollar had curtailed gains. A firmer greenback, which has been performing stronger against major currencies, makes dollar-priced commodities like oil more expensive, hampering demand.
Aside from the stronger dollar, major exporter Iran has also vowed to keep up oil production after the lifting of Western sanctions in January, further fueling the supply glut.
The global oil market nosedived from above $100 a barrel two years ago to around $27 in early 2016, plagued by a stubborn glut. Prices have since rebounded, aided by the weeks of wildfires in Canada as well as unrest affecting energy infrastructure in Nigeria, Africa’s biggest oil exporter.
Markets are now eyeing a June 2 meeting of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries in Vienna where it is hoped a deal on reducing production can be reached. Last month, talks in Doha involving OPEC members and other major producers such as Russia failed to reach a deal to cap production. NEW YORK, United States — Oil prices surged to the highest levels this year Wednesday after data showed a fall in US crude inventories that added to expectations of a tightening global market. They have since rebounded, aided by weeks of wildfires in Canada that have curbed oil production and unrest affecting energy infrastructure in Nigeria, Africa’s biggest oil exporter. Presumptive President-elect Rodrigo Duterte’s stern warning for the two dominant telecommunication companies to shape up has emboldened the Philippine Competition Commission (PCC) as it vowed to look into possible uncompetitive business practices in the provision of Internet services. Duterte said Monday that he would open the country to foreign telco players that could provide better service if the existing firms would not do something to improve Internet connection and access. The PCC chief lamented that he himself suffered from poor Internet service despite high costs shelled out by consumers.
In the drafting of a national competition policy to be led by the National Economic and Development Authority (Neda) and the PCC, Balisacan noted that it would help that the incoming President, who will also head the Neda Board, was pushing for more competitive services sectors, including telecommunications.
While the scoping study being conducted by the PCC with regards the priority sectors to be investigated by the body for unfair competition has been delayed, Balisacan said Duterte’s pronouncements with regards his administration’s competition policy would boost the implementation of RA 10667, described as the country’s first foray into antitrust regulation. It would help that government agencies, including the President himself, could lodge a case or complaint to the PCC, Balisacan said. Moving forward, the PCC would investigate uncompetitive sectors, possibly including telecommunications.
The value of investment pledges approved by the Board of Investments (BOI) surged by 64 percent to P117.3 billion in the first four months of the year, reflecting the continued confidence of investors in the Philippines. Among the big ticket projects noted in the first four months of the year were the P16.7-billion project registered by Megawide Cebu Airport Corp.
Despite the stellar growth, the Department of Trade and Industry will keep its 5 percent investment growth target.
A manufacturing resurgence, according to Cristobal, was also evident as the sector has consistently surpassed the growth of services for the past nine quarter. A specter commonly  experienced by the banking industry in congressional investigations is the compulsion of our congressmen and senators  to disclose information relating to bank accounts. Without dealing into specifics such as whether the secrecy of bank deposits covers instances where a bank account is alleged to be fictitious (an issue that only our courts of law can decide under our constitutional system of government), the question is whether or not Congress has the power to compel banks and their officers or employees to disclose to them information relating to “deposits” and “properties and properties in the[ir] custody”  in the course of public hearings in aid of legislation. A perusal of the records of the legislative deliberations indubitably showed Congress was devoid of such power.

Kids get excited, have fun, generate a positive attitude about math, develop curiosity and learn to see and look for underlying patterns everywhere: the basis for learning for a lifetime. Creating Squares is a ADDITION process, and creating the multiplication tables or individual math facts both also  involve addition.
Instead of learning one math fact at a time (which is not only difficult but highly inefficient), children learn a pattern for the entire table. Kids understand squares, create a structure for memorizing them, and see the bigger picture. For instance the Eights use the Twos 2-4-6-8-0 pattern backwards (8-6-4-2-0) over and over. The numbers you see are the ones-digits (Onesies) for the Ones, Threes, Sevens, and Nines times tables. This will show the ones digits (Onesies) of the Ones Times Table, the Threes times table, the Sevens times table, and the Nines Times Table.
Let’s be friends with these cool ideas that show us so many fun patterns that are learning tools. The EZ Times Table is the revolutionary right Brain approach to teaching math by MisterNumbers. At sana malaman natin kahit hindi ngayon, kahit in the future, bakit nagkaroon ng ganoon,” he said.
Babasahin ng journal ng mga future Filipinos, makikita na hindi naman namin pinabayaan ‘yung boto nila na hindi naman nawala. There are no unaccounted votes because all votes are duly recorded in COCs canvassed by the National Board of Canvassers.
Others worry about his crass personality and the lewd comments he’s made about women. And he unleashed an uncanny marketing ability in which he deduced his critics’ weak points and distilled them to nicknames that stuck. One rally in Chicago was canceled after thousands of demonstrators surrounded the venue and the Secret Service could no longer vouch for the candidate’s safety. Bongbong Marcos won this round as he sustained his lead albeit a very slim one on the second day of canvassing at the House of Representatives. Sa tingin namin, hindi magkakaroon ng pagkakataon na mauunang maiproklama ang presidente at maiiwan ang bise president,” she said. Iisang [inaudible] ginamit, iisang balota, iisang Board of Canvassers, iisang mga electronic transmission,” Macalintal said in a radio interview. Kaya sinasabi namin na dahil sa lamang si Leni, siya ang presumptive vice president,” Macalintal said in a radio interview. You just maintain your loyalty to the Constitution,” Duterte said in a press conference here on Thursday. At least 80 lawmakers from the erstwhile dominant Liberal Party have also expressed their desire to join Duterte’s political party. In the same press conference, he said the Communist Party of the Philippines had given him an “impressive” list of nominees for the four Cabinet portfolios that he offered them. Bongbong Marcos for repeatedly pointing out the number of undervotes in the vice presidential race. Romulo Macalintal, added that there was nothing unusual in undervotes when voters opt to leave blank their choices for vice president even though he or she has voted for a president.
This was according to 45 certificates of canvass or CoCs tabulated (covering 10,208,514 votes) of the total 165 CoCs. Upon landing back at the airport, a flight steward announced the plane was no longer safe to fly. And indeed, investigators said the massive heart attack that killed two of the concertgoers was due to high blood pressure, kidney failure and dehydration—all indicators of drug overdose. And yet, according to reports, while some 70 cops were deployed at the venue, no security personnel were visible at the center of the gathering, where the party was said to have been at its wildest. With such lax security measures, and the young’s famous battle cry “Yolo”—you only live once—it’s not unreasonable to suspect that drug pushers and users had their day (and night) at the concert. Unfortunately, such party drugs are often sold online, making it easier for young people with an internet connection to be on party mode. Can drug-sniffing dogs be deployed at concert venues to allow security personnel proper monitoring? And shouldn’t they have medical personnel trained to handle drug-related emergencies at the venue?
But the body count can only go higher, as a recent PDEA report has indicated that in Metro Manila alone, 92 percent of barangays are drug-infested.
In separate sessions at the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos, Switzerland, Nobel laureate economist Joseph Stiglitz, International Monetary Fund chief Christine Lagarde and Massachusetts Institute of Technology professor Erik Brynjolfsson all described GDP as a poor indicator of progress. Where there’s a wide gap between a small rich minority and a large number who are poor, rapid GDP growth could come with increased misery, particularly when the benefits of growth accrue mainly to the former.
Economics students are taught that “utility,” economists’ clinical term for “satisfaction” or “happiness,” is directly related to levels of consumption, and that for a rational consumer, more is always better. We may actually do so from giving more to others as well, drawing joy from the increased joy of others. Many years ago, the Bhutan government reportedly encouraged a prominent and influential farmer to double-crop a high-yielding rice variety. Among these are the People Power Monument on Edsa, the Bonifacio Monument near Manila City Hall, and the Rajah Sulayman Monument in Malate. It is a piece of work that rends the heart and pierces the soul—a timeless reminder that freedom is not free, that freedom comes at a price. Yes, upon gazing at it you would, not only because of the painful events it brings back but also because of the stark poetry in the agony it depicts, the beauty in the defiant stance of a mother who must bear an unspeakable loss. The 1.5-hectare property was donated by the administration of President Corazon Aquino, through Land Bank of the Philippines, the year after the Marcos dictatorship was toppled and Corazon Aquino was swept to the presidency in 1986.
Many names have been added every year since then, bringing to 268 the names on the wall as of 2015. The way they lived and died varied, but they had heroic streaks that made them worthy to be included in the list of names on the Wall of Remembrance.
All “for want of a nail,” or for want of effective communications that told compelling stories about the accomplishments of the Aquino administration.
As Edward Bernays, the originator of modern public relations, said, PR is “doing good” and “telling the public” about it. We are a forgiving people, and we would have understood if P-Noy said he was deeply sorry for failures and shortcomings beyond his control.
The quality management system of the Department of Public Works and Highways is now certified in accordance with the requirements of the ISO (International Organization for Standardization) 9001:2008 standards. Even presumptive President-elect Rody Duterte has openly acknowledged that the P-Noy administration has done very well in its economic programs.
His accomplishments were dismissed and ignored by the electorate during the election campaign. Agatep is chair and CEO of Grupo Agatep, an integrated marketing communications agency, and a two-term president of the Public Relations Society of the Philippines. It is far from the usual deconsolidated and badly eroded democracies marked by political or economic turmoil that allowed messianic strongmen elsewhere to be elected and to later end or seriously erode their own democracies.
Aquino, from economic growth, low inflation, robust antipoverty program and higher employment to better rule of law and anticorruption scores.
Aquino in June 2013 that the Social Weather Stations recorded the highest satisfaction rating over how democracy works, at 80 percent. But a number of these analyses are bedeviled by the sense of inevitability of Duterte’s victory that they convey.
These analyses argued that these infirmities explain why only Duterte could win or could have won the four-cornered presidential election.
Leni Robredo over Marcos Jr.  For here it can be seen, in all its shining glory, the triumph of political strategy over zeitgeist, of contingency over inevitability, and of democracy over despair.
No doubt there will be a short meeting in some departments, on where things stand, so that progress continues. But there are some areas where we don’t want continuity, and the overriding one is the exceedingly slow action of an administration that thinks before it acts, and then thinks again. Well, here’s a good first test to prove he’s not just a “mouth”—his word, not mine (it’s hardly good English).


It’s already the second most densely populated city in Asia, and with Manila Bay on one side and Laguna Bay on the other, it has nowhere to go. The incoming president can meet the outgoing one and ask for some last-minute actions on things Mr. Aquino to rush a bill through Congress to create the post of Metro Manila governor, to whom all city mayors would report.
When I became a teenager, I was not really that preoccupied with it, but gradually, my online time increased every year.
This is the same as wearing eyeglasses for long: Sometimes a person forgets that he or she is wearing them. Whatever your niche is, social media always has something fresh to entice you to spend more time on the screen. When I am writing and I am suddenly at a loss for words, I used to visit Facebook to relax a bit.
A predictable night for most teenagers and young adults entails going to bed as early as 9 p.m. This is because our mobile phones produce blue light, which is healthy during the day but becomes a foe at night for it blocks the production of melatonin, a hormone that helps us sleep at night. It’s funny how Facebook recently included the emotion buttons, perhaps to give people the ability to communicate not only their views but also their feelings.
Instead of visiting a friend who is sick, we prefer to comment “get well soon” to their statuses. Remember that because of social media, jobs were created today that never existed in the past 15 years. At the end of the day, social media is not really the problem; how we use it may be the problem. Cynthia Villar, to the Cabinet position of public works secretary has not been well-received.
We are told that the position was not offered to the young Villar, but was asked by his parents.
Our advocacy is for the new President to succeed by appointing the right people to the right positions!!! If he really has to appoint Mark Villar, then he can give him other positions in, say, the Department of Tourism or the Tourism Infrastructure and Enterprise Zone Authority. While it is understandable for the presumptive President-elect to appoint persons who helped him during the campaign, it is important that they are appointed to the right positions to make them effective. As a result, President Aquino’s daang matuwid was repudiated in the last presidential election as his presidential candidate, former interior secretary Mar Roxas.
It also served as catalyst for market investors to cash in,” said Manny Cruz, chief strategist at stock brokerage Asiasec Equities. It also opens new travel possibilities for the growing number of South Pacific travelers looking to explore Asia,” Viljoen added. 8, 2015, file photo, men work on an oil pump during a sandstorm in the desert oil fields of Sakhir, Bahrain.
US benchmark West Texas Intermediate for delivery in July advanced 94 cents to $49.56 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange.
Balisacan said on the sidelines of the public consultation on the implementing guidelines of the Republic Act (RA) No. The BPO [business process outsourcing] sector is very dependent on a very efficient telco industry,” Balisacan noted.
Sources of growth have become more diversified, showing changes in the structure of the economy. The manufacturing sector, he said, regained its strong position as it grew by 8.1 percent in the first quarter of 2016, the highest rate posted in the past even quarters.
Underpinned by our new industrial policy, investor confidence in manufacturing has heightened as indicated by rising fixed capital formation expenditure,” he explained. The following excerpts from the deliberations conducted by the House of Representatives in respect to the enactment of the Bank Secrecy Act (R.A.
If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable.
As I worked with students, even Calculus students, I found that many of them struggled with basic addition. All they need is to know the squares of 1-4 and add a number 10 or under to another number. The middle picture is the numbers right side up The right picture has the tens-digits  (tensies) added to create the THREES times table. That is for the board to appreciate, and to emphasize that perhaps something went wrong in as far as our computerized election is concerned,” Garcia said. Whatever legal remedy that we would like to seek later, later masasabi namin sa inyo kung bakit namin ine-emphasize ang null votes sa bawat COC na kina-canvass,” he added. This is what we call null votes and this term was used in cases where the voter did not vote for a particular position,” Macalintal said in a manifestation before the canvassing was suspended.
With 303 delegates at stake in five state primaries on June 7, Trump will easily pad his total, avoiding a contested convention in Cleveland.
The person insisted on anonymity because the person was not authorized to publicly discuss the internal campaign dynamics. From there he and Cruz fiercely engaged, with Trump winning some and losing some but one way or another dominating the rest of the primary season — in votes or at least in attention — and ultimately in delegates. The Philippine National Police and the National Bureau of Investigation are conducting parallel inquiries. The five, it appears, were also under the influence of alcohol, which makes for a fatal brew with drugs in most cases. At the admission desks, concertgoers were told to list their names, ages and e-mail addresses as they presented their tickets, but there was no need for IDs. Monitoring such e-commerce sites should certainly be a priority of drug enforcement agents. How about the deployment of undercover agents, to spot possible drug trade during open-air events, or even just to douse the chutzpah of drug dealers? Would it hurt to have posters warning of the fatal mix of party drugs and alcohol, and loudspeakers blaring the same warning before the start of an event? Also, the Philippines has the highest abuse rate for shabu in East Asia, according to the latest UN World Drug Report. I have written time and again on the need for caution against reading too much into that number, and for everyone to understand what GDP tells us, and what it doesn’t. All argued for change in how economic and social development are measured—and it seems the time is finally ripe for this. Both measure the total value of goods and services produced and of total incomes earned in the economy, which are two sides of the same coin. We could also derive satisfaction from doing something enjoyable, such as playing a sport, or even doing our job (hence the word “workaholic”).
What were his thoughts and feelings when he saw his creation being hoisted up to its pedestal? And very few spend time worrying about their image and reputation until they get into trouble. His demeanor and informality during these chats kept him in high public regard throughout his unprecedented four terms as US president.
Our economy in 2010 was at $198 billion, but as P-Noy ends his six-year term, our economy has grown to $320 billion, surpassing half of all the presidents of our country for the past 40 years. The opposition parties were one in spreading lies that there was blatant corruption and hopeless incompetence in his governance. Nor that he has an antiestablishment persona of uncouth language and manners that some analysts have romantically labeled as authentic. It was also in June 2013 that the number of Filipinos saying that “democracy is always preferable to any other kind of government”—whom the democratization literature calls “unconditional democrats”—was at a record high of 65 percent.
Aquino himself or his administration; rejection of the post-Edsa “ruling elite democracy,” “oligarchic democracy” or “cacique democracy,” and triumph of the grassroots movement over party machinery) approaches. This is problematic because he was not the survey front-runner, and even found himself in fourth place behind survey laggard Mar Roxas as late as the March 4-7 SWS survey. Hence, wittingly or unwittingly, they fanned further the man-of-the-hour, zeitgeist narrative of the Duterte camp. And already Rodrigo Duterte spoke well when he aired the assurance that he’ll continue the policies and programs of President Aquino. I’m involved in a project that would put a marker into gas and diesel to stop the smuggling.
This is one area where autonomy is not desirable, and the horrendous traffic mess is partly because of this.
I found myself checking my phone periodically, such as when waiting for an elevator to arrive, when I’m sitting in a bus, when I get up in the morning, while eating my lunch, and before going to bed. According to a research, nine out of 10 people have exhibited phantom vibration syndrome, in which people mistaken an itch or a muscle spasm as phone vibration.
The phantom vibration syndrome may not sound like a big deal to our health, but I find it to be very annoying. It turns out that I was never busy, that I was just diverted, and my time was channeled into some baloney pursuits.
I tell myself that I will just scroll for five minutes, but the truth is, it will become 40 minutes. It makes the flow of information faster and connects everyone regardless of where they’re from. The first reaction was on the issue of conflict of interest, given that the Villars are into property development. The question is: Has he built roads, bridges and other public works of high construction quality?
The appointment of Mark Villar as public works secretary is not a good start for the Duterte administration. If it’s coming from the practices of industry players then we have to address that frontally—we can impose administrative fines.
First the growth of manufacturing has outpaced services in the past four years after more than a decade. If a student can “see” the numbers on the wheel and their relative position, they can “see” the Ones part of the answer. You can also buy the Right Brain Math book (a new expanded version of the EZ Times Table book) below that has all the blank tables with step-by-step directions, as well as 16 other playsheets and info on the Right Brain approach using Number Wheels and Tic Tac Toe Squares.
It’s one of the main reasons students fail or drop out of college or even high school. Leni Robredo by almost two million votes in the ongoing tally by the Congress on Thursday evening.
At this writing, no one in authority has formally announced drug overdose as cause of death.
Thus, it must have been fairly easy for minors to get in, or for others to sneak in drugs or spiked drinks under their clothes as only bags were inspected.
Furthermore, GDP ignores how our children’s future may be compromised by our production and consumption activities today.
Psychologists have long known that happiness or wellbeing can be improved not only from “having,” but also from “doing,” “being” and “being related with.” Humans also have an inherent instinct for altruism, or for caring and sharing, even as economics assumes them to be intrinsically selfish.
It was hoped that with him serving as an inspiring example, other farmers would emulate him and thus diffuse the improved technology. Did he often come around for quiet moments to find inspiration from the heroes and martyrs? He did the very best that he could, but he stayed quiet about what he was doing and what he stood for. His economic platform made our economy grow by 6.9 percent in the first quarter of 2016—the fastest expansion since the second quarter of 2013.
The two ratings remained high in the most recent SWS democracy survey conducted in December 2015, two months before the start of the presidential campaign. Duterte’s surge in the surveys only happened in the latter half of the campaign, where incidentally this type of analyses started appearing and replacing the earlier ones that said it would be a tight race.
He CAN, because all the studies have been endlessly done over the past two decades, or longer. 3) Develop Clark for the long term and its transport link to the National Capital Region, so it fits into my earlier suggested development of a new capital for the country. It bothers me that Duterte’s initial announcement is that he’ll give the Department of Environment and Natural Resources to a communist. It turns out that social media cleansing is one of the best detox experiences I’ve had, and I’m planning to do it more often. From scrolling through my newsfeed, I will end up in a funny video of cats; I watch it on YouTube and the “recommended” button will entice me to watch more. It has allowed businesses to expand their reach, emerging talents to be discovered, and many more.
Which reminds us of the C-5 extension controversy, where Villar the father, then a senator, allegedly used his influence with the Department of Public Works and Highways so that the C-5 Road Extension would pass through his real estate properties and connect to a link road adjacent to more of his commercial land. I upgraded to a higher [priced] subscription, I thought I’d get a better service—I did not,” Balisacan said. If it’s a cartel issue, there’s also a criminal aspect to that and they could be prosecuted by the Department of Justice,” Balisacan said. Rodolfo said in a briefing Wednesday that the significant growth in investment approvals was driven by infrastructure and energy projects.
Although services has been the main growth driver of the economy for the past decades, manufacturing has been contributing substantially since 2013,” Cristobal said. Below is also a graphic to show how the times table fits on the Tic-Tac-Toe square using a dial pad showing placement of x 1, x 2, x 3, etc for the Sevens, AND the Threes, and the Ones and Nines. Note the pattern of the tens-digits is Same-UP-UP, Same-UP-UP, Same-UP-UP (0-1-2,  2-3-4,  4-5-6). I am so happy to actually able to recognize patterns, which makes learning addition, subtraction, multiplication and division easier.

May mga botante, nagkaka-abstain, hindi bumoboto sa isang particular na posisyon,” Macalintal told reporters in an ambush interview. Or we may get it from loving someone and being loved, or having good relations with family and neighbors, or having many friends.
But the authorities were astonished when the model farmer chose not to plant in the following year. He created a communications vacuum that allowed his detractors to form and communicate negative opinions about daang matuwid.
Public servants need to embrace the practice of regular, open and honest communications as one of the keys to building a winning personal brand. Cambodia, hardly a progressive nation, did it in three years—not decided in three, but built it in three. We’ll risk a repeat of an environmentalist with no ability to strike a balance (read my environmentalist daughter’s balanced view on this in my April 21 column). Mind you, Duterte has said he’ll issue an executive order to open the administration to public scrutiny, so it’s not so critical. Suddenly, I will be on Twitter, laughing out loud at the tweets of silly trolls, and then I’m in Pinterest pinning some quotes about procrastination. You may excel at writing, reading, music, or other right brained subjects but math is a constant struggle. In many cases, these other sources of happiness may actually be associated with having less of the things that GDP measures. The DENR should really be split as it’s hard to encourage and control an activity all in one government agency. The P40 billion would cover the estimated P37 billion to be lost with introduction of a 25-percent corporate income tax. When I look at my clock, it’s already midnight and I no longer have the energy to finish my article. Thus, he would rather live leisurely and spiritually—and chose to spend his time in the monastery instead. Wherever you decide to build an airport, it will work by the very fact that the government will have to ensure that it works. He simply but eminently demonstrated that more production and more happiness do not necessarily come together. Before going to the museum, visitors should head for the Wall of Remembrance and search for names of next of kin, friends, colleagues, comrades—the known and little-known—who fell in the night and also those who did not die in battle but continued the struggle until the breaking of the dawn. A quick outcome is needed, then file a challenge at the Presidential Electoral Tribunal, if you must. Another thing he can order is an increase in the excise tax on fuels that are half the price they used to be, as Cesar Purisima has suggested.
