The continuous advancement of technology in today’s world requires an equally continuous increase in the need for fuel. Fuel is needed to power the machines involved in these technologies. In the Philippines various energy sources are tapped. Electricity is mainly derived from water power plants or geothermal power plants. Cars and airplanes are powered by oil imported from the Middle East.
Very few could probably still remember, but in the 1980s, an alternative energy source became available to the Filipinos—the Bataan Nuclear Power Plant. This power plant cost the country billions of dollars to finish, but ultimately was never used. To this day, the country is paying the debt we have incurred in the construction of the power plant while it stands in the Bataan, without any foreseeable use. (continue reading…)
The military of a country can make or break its present administration—this claim perhaps is best proved by the events that transpired during President Ferdinand Marcos’ despotic administration. During the implementation of Martial law in the country, the Armed Forces of the Philippines, composed of the Philippine Army, Philippine Navy, and the Philippine Air Force became pivotal in quelling uprisings and attacking “enemies of the state”. But towards the end of Marcos’ presidency, the Philippine military also played a key role in overthrowing the dictator. (continue reading…)
Just recently 11 Chinese fishermen were arrested in a standoff in Palawan after they were caught illegally poaching over 500 marine turtles in the waters of the disputed West Philippine Sea. This event is without a doubt connected to the long-running territorial dispute between China and the Philippines over which country has legitimate claim over the Spratly Islands. The Spratlys region, an oil-rich chain of islands located in what was formerly known as the South China Sea (aka West Philippine Sea) is now being claimed by at least five sovereign states — China, the Philippines, Taiwan, Vietnam, and Malaysia. Notwithstanding, the strongest of claims have always emanated and continue to emanate from China and the Philippines. The clash between the two countries has become so hopelessly bad that the United Nations has already become involved in the arbitration process. (continue reading…)
Politics in the Philippines is unique in a lot of regrettable ways. For one, it is extremely personal—dynastic even. Powerful clans dominate both local and national levels of government. It is a network of compadres, of friends and families, who mastermind grand schemes and plots towards enrichment and self-aggrandizement. Obviously, this kind of personal and clannish politics concerned mostly in itself tends to be the most corrupt. (continue reading…)
The Philippine hospitality is always associated with scrumptious food. Visitors are concerned as to the preparation, presentation and the taste of the food itself. And talking about the authenticity of a great food steward, Kapampangans are always number one on the list.
Kapampangans or the natives of Pampanga are known to be meticulous in food preparation. It is for this reason why their native foods are not only known in their province, but in the entire Philippines as well. (continue reading…)
Philippines is literally house to hosts political scams and scandals. In the past, there were the ZTE scam and fertilizer scam. But none of these are perhaps half as controversial or hotly debated as the Philippine Development Assistance Fund Scam, popularly known as the pork barrel scam in the end of 2013. The PDAF scam is quoted to involve billions and billions of pesos of Filipino money being pocketed by various personalities, most prominently by senators and congressmen. Up until now the issue remains far from being resolved, although with the recent release of the so-called “Napoles list”, we are probably getting closer and closer to the bottom line of this ludicrous political extravaganza.
