Of drugs, stupidity and poverty

PRESIDENT Digong should not resign even if the United Nation (UN) finds that the state has allowed extra judicial killings in the DRUGS WAR, if only to save the next generation from the drug menace. He should only shift to the killing of “stupidity” since it also contributes to poverty. 


On CLIMATE CHANGE. Why must the state continue to allow the farmers to plant at the same time, when it can change the climate by providing incentives for farmers to stop the seasonal planting like providing individual water pumps? This will now tap the vast reservoir of ground water…

Saving farmers from poverty

THERE WAS a movie that tells the true story of 33 trapped miners that were all rescued after 69 days underground which is titled THE 33. 

It was in Chile where 33 miners were trapped for 69 days in a 100 year old mining company that did not provide for a way out of the mine in case of an accident (because of greed) such as an earthquake. 

Their story is no different from the farmers of the Philippines today. They are also trapped in poverty.

All the technologies of drilling and triangulation were used by the experts…

This in itself does not constitute independence” BMP President Leody de Guzman said in a…

This is the sentiment of more than 3.000 farmers, private seed producers and government officials who attended the 3rd national rice technology forum, September 27 to 29, 2016, in Polangui, Albay.

The key is planting quality inbred and hybrid rice varieties, adopting the recommended package of technologies and farm mechanization — which was successfully demonstrated to thousands of Bicol farmers at a contiguous, commercial-scale 20-hectare technology demonstration farm…

First 100 days of Du30 Presidency: Report Card (First of a series)

PRESIDENT Rodrigo Roa Duterte’s first 100 days in office have been bewildering and devastating to his political nemesis of various stripes.

Especially to criminals and corrupt elements in government and out of it, druglords and rank and file ofthe drug syndicates, foreign meddlers in Philippine internal affairs, their respective drumbeaters, spin masters and fellow travelers.

Political opposition has wilted in the face of a 91% popular trust rating which is completely unprecedented and simply overwhelming. 

But partisan politics is a game of hawks and eagles. Sharp claws may have been retracted, temporarily, but they are ever ready to pounce…
