Using PDEA to demolish political foes

By Fernan J. Angeles

THE Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) has confirmed the existence of a barangay drug watchlist. However, far from the disclosure of Interior and Local Government Undersecretary Martin Diño who hinted at  9,000 names, there are only over 500 barangay officials, from a total of 42,029 barangays included in the government’s drug watch list.

By Rose de la Cruz


When Uber officially went offline last April 16, commuters, who have grown to love using transport network vehicles (TNVs) ride sharing for ease and comfort, were dismayed by the monopolistic operations of Grab, which behaved like the abhorred taxis that choose passengers and overcharge their patrons.

Toray Japan finds Phl as a young but strong market for its tap-mounted purifiers


By Rose de la Cruz 

Industrial manufacturer, Toray of Japan, finds its youngest market at 2 years old, the Philippine market as a very strong, dynamic and fast growing market, particularly in high-rises where space is very limited and a family’s security could be compromised by deliverers of mineral or purified water for home and office dispensers.

 When it partnered two years ago with Moduvi Inc. as exclusive distributor of Torayvino, the faucet mounted water filter system, it gave its full trust and confidence to the group to develop the market in the way it sees fit. True enough,…
