Strict enforcement will solve traffic woes

HE new Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA) experiment to dedicate one lane along EDSA as high occupancy vehicle (HOV) lane, where only vehicles with at least two passengers are allowed to use, could most likely worsen instead of solve the already exasperating traffic in Metro Manila.
With two lanes along EDSA already designated as yellow lanes where only buses can use, the new HOV lane will further constrict traffic for private vehicles (one passenger only) along the busiest road stretch of Metro Manila.

Dapat may managot sa isyu ng Dengvaxia

LIBO-libong magulang ang nangangamba ngayon matapos pumutok ang balita hinggil sa panganib na dulot ng anti-dengue vaccine na Dengvaxia sa mga batang nabakunahan ng nasabing gamot kahit hindi pa sila nagkakaroon ng sakit na dengue.
Dangan kasi ay naobliga ang Department of Health (DOH) na suspendihin ang P3.5-billion dengue immunization program na ito matapos magbabala ang manufacturer nito na Sanofi Pasteur hinggil sa panganib na dulot ng nasabing gamot.
Partikular na sinabi ng Sanofi na malaki ang posibilidad na mas magiging malubha ang kondisyon ng isang pasyenteng nabigyan ng vaccine kung ginawa ito bago siya magkaroon ng dengue.

MAY PUNTO SI PING

BIHIRA na lang ang mga opisyales ng ating pamahalaan lalo’t higit ang mga miyembro ng Kamara at Senado na masasabing matitino at hindi hinahayaang tuluyang balutin ng pulitika ang kanilang sistema.

Sa halip ay pinaiiral nila ang pagiging objective at laging inuuna nila ang kapakanan at interes ng taumbayan.

Kaya naman kapag nagsalita sila ay dapat pakinggan at bigyang pansin sapagkat tiyak na may sustansya at kabuluhan ang kanilang mga sinasabi.

At kabilang sa kanila si Sen. Panfilo ‘Ping’ Lacson na kamakailan ay ipinanukala na dapat ng bawasan ng gobyerno ang mga ibinibigay na VAT exemptions sa mga malalaking korporasyon.…

Brokers slam BoC’s single lane system

THE Bureau of Customs’ (BOC) queueing system that practically changed its traditional 15-section filing of import entries into a one lane or single window filing of import entries, is getting strong opposition from some customs brokers and importers saying it is causing delay in the processing of import entries. 

In a rally by a small group of customs brokers at the BOC gate last Monday (Nov. 20, 2017), the brokers blamed the queueing system for the delay they are now encountering in the processing of their import entries. 

 

Unfamiliar

According to customs broker Teddy Guasa, the unfamiliarity of…
