Technology for Everybody

WE don’t have to worry about the digital natives, because they were born into the digital era and they could do very well in the electronic age. 

We also do not have to worry about the non-millennial people who have adopted quickly into the new age, even if they are actually digital migrants, so to speak. 

What we have to worry about are the people in between, those who are neither digital natives on one hand, nor digital migrants on the other hand. 

For the most part, these people are probably senior citizens who found no means…

Duterte, the chief architect of foreign policy

THE concept of the word "influential", in reference to the list of the world's most influential leaders, does not distinguish between good and bad personages.

It is thus not necessarily a feather to our cap that Pres. Digong Duterte has been ranked side by side with Pope Francis at the top. After all, our chief executive is either a hero or a heel, depending on where the viewer comes from.

While PDu30 is caught in the maelstrom of flak over his maverick handling of relations between China and the Philippines, the critical question being raised these days is whether he…

I HAVE always wondered why there is a very long technology lag in this country, sometimes extending to about fifty years or more.

He was born on August 31, 1917 in Zambales. He became a guerilla leader and a congressman. He was produced and directed by the US CIA under USAF/CIA Edward Landsdale into a modern - day Hero and Savior. 

President Elpidio Syquia Quirino appointed him as the Secretary of National Defense. He defeated the Partido Komunista ng Pilipinas (PKP) and the Hukbong Magpapalayas a Bayan (HMB).…

Percy Lapid, et. al. charged

IF the claims of the complainant are to be believed, then it’s a classic case of ‘envelopmental’ journalism rearing its ugly head. 

Recent news report showed that columnist Percival Mabasa – known as Percy Lapid , Hataw tabloid managing editor Gloria Galuno  and publisher Jerry Yap, had been issued a warrant of arrest by the Manila Regional Trial Court over libel charges filed by barangay chairwoman Ligaya Santos of Barangay 659-A, Zone 71 in Lawton, Manila.
