Trolls are at it again!

OpinYon’s Facebook account is being flooded lately by hate posts in reaction to our last week’s banner story titled: Its common sense, Stupid!!

In that issue, OpinYon pointed out that solving the country’s traffic nightmare does not need a genius but simple common sense. 

We posited that the traffic problem is a simple case of supply and demand and that it should be dealt with the understanding that at present there are just too many cars competing for very little space. 

To the DOTr however, this simple problem has become too complicated because some geniuses working for big…

PH target growth on track with 7.1 percent GDP increase in Q3

THE gross domestic product (GDP) grew by 7.1 percent in the third quarter of 2016, a carryover from the growth path of the previous administration, owing to the strong performance of manufacturing, trade and real estate, renting and business activities.

The Philippine Statistics Authority, which now officially assumes the functions of the National Economic and Development Authority, is optimistic that the target economic growth of 6.5 to 7.5 percent for the entire 2016 “would be met if not surpassed, at the rate these sectors are performing.”

The 7.1 percent growth rate in the third quarter is…

DOLE urged to disclose results of SM probe

MILITANT youth group Samahan ng Progresibong Kabataan (SPARK) has urged the Labor Department to disclose its findings on the extent of contractual employment being exercised in the retail giant’s operations.

SPARK’s call came more than a month after a mandatory conference was held between the management of SM Supermalls and the labor department to investigate allegations of labor-only contracting in the mall chain.

DA vows to modernize fishing industry

LACK of cold-storage and preservation facilities has been one of the biggest handicaps in the development of the Philippines’ fishing industry.

In fact, while certain fish-based products such as dried fish and bagoong are in demand among Filipino communities in other countries, such products could hardly enter the foreign market due to sanitary and health concerns. 

This means that our fishermen are often deprived of a chance to introduce the Philippines’ rich marine resources to a bigger market.
