Weeding out corruption in the Philippines

The vision and ongoing drive of the present government of President Noynoy Aquino to eliminate graft and corruption and to promote integrity and honesty in all government agencies in the Philippines is admirable. Apparently this administration put a primer in uncovering corruption and excesses by the past administration and bringing the culprit government officials in the open and to court. The witch hunt seem to cover all agencies in the government and even government owned corporations.This is unprecendented.

From the exposes and congressional and senatorial hearings , ordinary citizens like me can only gasp in awe at the depth and extent of alleged corruption and abuses made in the past bureaucracy. The alleged abuses were truly mind boogling.

Whatever critics and sour grapers say, this ongoing anti-corruption initiative has already produced tangible results:

-A number of cases against past officials, the past President of the Philippines included are already filed.
- Some government agencies like the military and the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office have intiated policy reforms to deter abuses
and corruption
- The televised senatorial probes appear to strike fear or put involved officials beyond their comfort zones. It's satisfying to see these once revered officials cringe in their seat, fumble their answers or issue meek denials.

- Greater awareness of citizens and government employees on corruption and the need for transparency in government transactions.

Whether the cases filed in court against erring past government officials may prosper in court or not is anyone's guess.


By all means all Filipinos should support President Noynoy Aquino's initiatives to kick out corruption in the government.

NBA Playoffs

The ongoing NBA Playoffs has lived up to its expectations. What a very thrilling and interesting show it has become. I just cannot miss the remaining games.Nor should you. With all teams giving their all and key players dishing out outstanding performances, the games can only be but exciting.

Although the Oklahoma City Thunders is on the verge of elimination in its duel against Dallas Mavericks,the games played were tight. It would not be far fetched if the Thunders can make a comeback. Likewise the Chigago Bulls can even the series with Miami Heat. The outcome although now heavily stacked against the Thunders and Oklahoma,is still up for grab. I would like to see both the Thunders and Bulls catch up with the leaders and go for a down the wire finish to the finals. My guess however is for the Dallas and Miami to make it to the finals.

Anyway, may the best teams win.

Getting to the Top in Class

The academic achievement of a 19 year old student of the University of the Philippines, Diliman, Quezon City, is simply amazing. Mr John Gabriel Perias as reported in the Philippine Daily Inquirer will graduate this summer,Summa Cum Laude in BS Mathematics with a general weighted average (GWA) of 1.016. This feat is extraordinary given the high academic standards for which the University of the Philippine is known. What's more. He just broke the university's post war record (1948) of 1.193 GWA.

This teen ager for sure is very intelligent. From what is known, he graduated valedictorian in high school. But what made him tick? What made him different from lots of high school valedictorians out there. He appears normal. Writing short novels, watching tv and playing piano are his past times.

His professors credited him with unwavering focus and maturity beyond his years.I would say the key to his outstanding success was his strategy to study his subjects excessively in advance. According to him he spent his summer vacations studying subjects for the next semester. The advance knowledge of his subjects no doubt accelerates understanding and absorption of topics discussed during his classes. This coupled with his natural intelligence,discipline and perseverance make an extraordinary academic performance.

Apparently spending summers studying subjects for the next semester is a vey tough act to follow. Typical students distance themselves from anything related to studies during school breaks. But maybe aspiring honor students and those struggling to get good grades need not go to the extremes. Try this tip I gathered and observed from honor students which enhances good understanding and absorption of subject matters:

-Read in advance the topics which will be taken up in your next class in the morning or just before you go to class. No need to understand fully the topics. Getting acquainted with some concepts and terms would suffice.
- After the class, during your free time, read your notes. Review the topics discussed in your class.

Of course there is no substitute for adequate and advance preparations during major examinations.

Crowd Control Information

Hi everyone. I have something great for you. This is a cool one so you better read this. Have you gone to any private or public places? I know you have. But have you observed the things that keep these places in order? Actually these things are actually tools for crowd control. It keeps everything organized.

Crowd control stanchions are the things that need to be setup in an orderly manner and to be setup that is magnificent to the view of the eye. However, these also need velvet rope to complete the setup. It would be better if you would also wisely choose the color of the velvet rope that will be perfect for the view of the place and that is noticeable to the people visiting the vicinity. You could also use barricades if it suits to the occasion.

You must remember that it is important to plan first the event, for you to have a better view on the possible outcome of it.

Beware of vultures taking advantage of Japan's Woes

When tragedies struck, it is not uncommon to hear of dubious people or organizations diverting aid money or valuables from the victims. That there are people who thrive or make their living from other peoples' miseries is beyond comprehension.The recent calamity that hit Japan is no exception. Apparently these human vultures are at work right now.

Newspapers and the internet are awash with warning on websites or organizations masquerading as legitimate charitable institutions. These vultures lure unsuspecting good samaritans to give their financial or material aids to Japan's earthquake and tsunamis' victims
through their organization or financial accounts.Of course your aid would never reach the intended beneficiaries.

These parasites are very clever. I recalled one incident when a fairly large earthquake hit the southern Philippines. A well dressed elderly man went around our subdivision claiming he was soliciting contributions in behalf of the victims. That he was an employee of a certain company and that he took a one week leave from his work so he could help. He had with him some certifications and papers recording contributions. Well I took the bait. I knew I was taken for a ride when about three weeks later I saw the same gentlemen in another part of the city still soliciting.

Apparently during tragedies,it is not enough to give. We must ensure that we are sending our donations only through legitimate charitable institution. Otherwise our aid will be wasted and only fatten the pockets of unscrupulous individuals. Worse successes would encourage these people to multiply and enbolden them to commit similar despicable acts in the future.

Troubling Developments in the Middle East

The massive political protests gripping Libya,Bahrain and Yemen, no doubt alarm long serving rulers.Emboldened by successful protest actions in the neighboring Tunisia,angry citizens apparently fed-up by corruption, economic difficulties and inefficiencies by their long serving leaders, now demand radical political reforms and greater freedom sparing not even their monarchy. These should serve as a lesson to dictators and ruling monarchies. 
My salute and smypathy to the people in the middle east nations who have awakened at last. These brave people will not be cowed anymore. And unless wide ranging political reforms are instituted, government headed by dictators and monarchies will face crippling protest actions. and unrests.
No doubt the rest of the  world wants the  middle east to normalize as soon as possible. Oil dependent and labor exporting nations like the Philippines would be hit hard economically should the current upheavals in these nations are not resolved soonest.

A Last Salute to General Angelo Reyes

I am not a fan of General Angelo Reyes but I find his supreme sacrifice of taking his own life admirable. Some may say he is not man enough to face the consequences of his alleged involvement in the corruption of the Philippine Armed forces. But surely it takes great courage to take one's life.

Would we rather have generals or politicians who "bravely" face the same situation but actually cowering behind the phalanx of lawyers and legal maneuvers? In the past and currently, we have had high profile trials and senate and congress hearings of alleged corrupt politicians. These personalities were too severely humiliated and in the perception of the many Filipinos guilty as hell. Some were even incarcerated.Yet did we hear any one of them committing suicide? On the contrary,some even made political comebacks.

No matter What hislevel of involment is or if he is at all involved in the alleged corruption in the Armed Forces, what General Reyes did certainly put him a rung higher in the eyes of ordinary Filipinos. Here is a military man who clearly values honor and who is willing to die for it.
