IF TRAFFIC PROBLEMS REMAIN UNSOLVED: LOREN SEES ECO-ENVIRONMENT APOCALYPSE

THE COUNTRY faces the grim prospect of an eco-environment apocalypse should government fail to promptly and correctly address the continuing nightmarish traffic that is killing Metro Manila and other highly urbanized areas.

“The metropolis is dying from pollution caused by traffic even when the national economy is being brought down by a paralysis in our traffic system in Metro Manila,” consumer advocacy groups claim as they support the latest move by Sen. Loren Legarda to address traffic woes.

IS GOV'T TAXING THE POOR?

SINCE Biblical times, taxes in whatever form and manner have been decried as a measure of government tyranny and the tax collector a public enemy.

FOLLOW the money and see where it goes. 

That quote from the Broadway musical Hamilton cannot be more appropriate than in the situation surrounding Chinese gambling tycoon Jack Lam.

Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre II recently dropped a bombshell when he announced the government’s decision to allow Lam to return to the country – under certain conditions.

CRIMINAL?

HEALTH is wealth, but for some companies, this might not hold true since for them, money, more than health, defines their wealth.

Companies are expected to be socially responsible to their stakeholders, environment and the society as a whole.

Commonly known as corporate social responsibility or CSR, the practice is a vital part in ensuring the success of a company.
