SPLURGE FOR A CAUSE

SPLURGING on items that are not that basic to one’s personal or household needs usually brings a feeling of guilt on buyers. But not when you splurge on an annual event like the International Bazaar (IB) where you know that the proceeds would benefit the needy and marginalized.

In its 50th anniversary, IB is even more resolved to reach out to the marginalized and the uncared for members of our society by embarking on projects that would directly help them and less on funding other organizations and foundations that cater to their sectors.

For the first time, the international bazaar…

IT’S COMMON SENSE, STUPID!

EXERCISE in common sense will help solve traffic nightmare in Metro Manila streets even as the Department of Transportation (DOTr) is pushing Congress to grant the President super powers that experts say already exist in the official mandate of the agency, except on the process of procurement.

Aware of this common perception, Yasay took his task quietly and…

THE GODS LOVE DUTERTE

THE Gods must really be favoring and smiling on President Rodrigo Duterte. 

This is because the President always ends up with the winning cards whether waging a personal battle or engaging with other leaders in international political arena. 

His independent foreign policy shift, referring to distancing from the USA could not have come at more appropriate time. 

How prescient! This makes him a visionary.

 

Nothing to Worry

When all respected pollsters were saying Clinton will win US elections, Pres. Digong dared fate by cussing her party mate and principal backer incumbent US President Barack Obama, jeopardizing…

IS BIG BUSINESS THE CULPRIT IN MICHAEL J. FOX DISEASE?

CAN diet sodas lead to Parkinson’s disease? The story of Hollywood star Michael J. Fox seems to answer this question.

And if recent studies are to be believed, it appears that the billion dollar chemical industry is the real culprit why Fox and many other patients like him would never be cured at least in a foreseeable future.

It turned out that while billions are being spent in helping the foundations that assist in finding cures for patients suffering from Parkinson’s Disease not a single centavo is being spent in finding the cause for the same.
