Personal View: I guess Manny should not have been criticized for wanting a P25M yacht as a gift to his precious family. On his part, he may have been thought about and paid it before the disaster happened. He can afford it while at the same time extended his help to our fellow Filipinos in Mindanao out of his personal money.
What is important is we all try to extend our help to our fellow Filipinos, cash or in kind, the help that really comes from our hearts. Together we can be able to help them start a new life and give hope that they can move on from our support and the government as well.
Let us look forward for the coming 2012 with positive outlook in life, good words and deeds, and work together for our beloved country because the worst is yet to come, as experts said so.

What is Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) or also known as Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES)? What is the importance of Muscle Stimulator in the medical field? It is a kind of therapy wherein electric impulses are being generated by a machine, travel through electrodes on the patient’s skin and then into their muscles that bring about muscle contraction. The process involves restoration of muscle tone and strength to the patients undergoing through physical therapy. This electrical muscle contraction enables patients who are unable to exercise in the usual manner due to incapacity for whatever reason to still develop muscle tone and strength.
How NMES machine works? At a safe current rate, the machine conducts electric currents to the muscle. It will start first by placing self-adhesive electrodes to the motor points onto the desired muscle or muscle system. Slow adjustment of the machine is needed until the patient feel the current passing through the skin and into the muscle. Remember, the higher the setting is set, the faster the muscle will contract and relax. Repetition of the process will depend on the desired result the patient want to achieve or is of satisfaction. Patients with diabetes or who have recent muscle damage can benefit from the use of these muscle stimulators. Likewise, these can prevent muscle atrophy and amputation on patients with unused limbs by stimulating the muscles and prevent decay from disuse.
In the U.S., the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) regulates the sale of all electrical muscle stimulators. These muscle stimulators are considered devices and may cause harm to its users like shocks, burns, bruising, skin irritation, and pain that is why strict regulations must be implemented to protect and ensure the safety of the consuming public. Getting muscle stimulators from reputable supplier is very important because it also ensure the user that it goes under FDA regulations and it’s safe from use.

A total of 188 congressmen signed the impeachment complaint against Supreme Court Chief Justice Renato Corona for betrayal of public trust and culpable violation of the Constitution. The House secretary-general was ordered by the plenary to endorse the said impeachment complaint to the Senate, where a trial will commence on 2012.

Resigning from your post I think will be the most appropriate and noble act to do amidst these controversies. We all love our country, we all respect our Constitution but the country needs to move on with a Chief Justice clear of any bad accusations, someone who has integrity and full trust and confidence of the Filipino people. The Supreme Court is the highest court of our country and if there are people who need first to respect, value and uphold the importance of the institution that duties lies on the Chief Justice and Associate Justices.

In support to the advocacy of the “Save Palawan Movement,” I am wholeheartedly giving this space of my blog to help in the awareness campaign of the movement to save our fellow Filipinos in Palawan, and the country in general. I am encouraging every Filipino around the world to take a look at this issue and let your voice be counted. Be part of the ten million signatures and help stop mining in Palawan.
No to Mining in Palawan” signature campaign last Thursday (February 3) in the hope of putting an end to mining activities in Palawan, known as the Philippines’ Last Ecological Frontier. The campaign aims to raise ten million signatures to deliver a strong message to the Philippine and Palawan governments so that they would finally say no to mining in Palawan and help protect one of the Philippines’ last remaining treasures. Present at the launch were ABS-CBN Foundation Managing Director Gina Lopez, Palawan Mayor Edward Hagedorn, “running priest” Fr. Robert Reyes, environment leaders Clemente Bautista (Kalikasan People’s Network for the Environment) and Atty. Jose Andres Canivel (Philippine Tropical Forest Conservation Foundation), and Rhodora Angela Ferrer of the Catholica Educational Association of the Philippines. They were joined by Kabang Kalikasan ng Pilipinas (WWF-Philippines) president Jose Lorenzo Tan, country director for Conservation International Romy Trono, Atty. Gerthie Mayo-Anda of Environmental Legal Asistance Center, executive director of Palawan NGO Network Inc. Atty Bobby Chan, Tanggol Kalikasan executive director Atty. Rolly Bisquera–Sheen, Alyansa Tigil Mina national coordinator Jaybee Garganera and various leaders of the environmental movement in the country. The ten million signature campaign came about after the killing of Dr. Gerardo “Doc Gerry” Ortega, a civic leader who championed the protection of Palawan’s rich biodiversity and an outspoken critic of mining operations in Palawan.

If respect is an issue here then I believed the president did nothing wrong. Why? The former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo and the Chief Justice Renato Corona never show that to now President Aquino. Days after the 2010 Elections, the former president appointed Corona as the 23rd Chief Justice of the Philippines. Why such an act? Why not give the honor to the incoming president of appointing the Chief Justice with the help of the Integrated Bar of the Philippines (IBP)? Respect begets respect.
Of course I wanted the executive and judiciary branches of our country to work harmoniously for the benefit of the country but how will it happen if everything started in bad taste. Can we blame the president for mentioning the midnight appointment during the summit if from the start of his presidency he was deprived of appointing his Chief Justice, a true disrespectful act? Can we blame a president if he blatantly criticized the Supreme Court for questionable decisions or unattended jobs?
The Filipino people are thirsty for righteous leaders, someone who will fight for their rights and keep his promise. Many government agencies are used to wrongdoings and abuse of powers brought about by the former government. I guess that’s the reason why many Filipinos see nothing wrong about the justice summit incident.
If Chief Justice Renato Corona values transparency, justice and respect over the laws of the land then he will resign from his post. He from the very start had the choice of accepting or not the appointment but even if he did there still time to think it over. His resignation will not only give peace between the executive and judiciary branches of the land but an honorable act and a righteous example of a “diplomatic sacrifice” for love of country.
The people’s reaction over this issue must serve as a warning to other members of the Supreme Court. Being members of the highest court in the land, it is your utmost responsibility to interpret the laws in its essence and render decisions righteously and with all integrity apart from affiliations, interest or personal grudge.

Another big issue that rose from the backyard of the Supreme Court is regarding the Hacienda Luisita. The ruling said that 4,915.75-hectare sugar estate must be distributed to 6,296 farmers. Now the big issue lies on the compensation of the sugar estate owners who are relatives of our president.
In this issue, I have nothing against our farmers but I believed that for the benefit that they will receive from the government just compensation must be given to land owners whether it is connected to a president or a private individual. Beneficiaries must try to comprehend that land owners also have the right to negotiate regarding “just compensation” from the government in giving out their lands to help our farmers. We must help each other in a way no one will benefit more from the other, or else that’s per se is unjust.
May this issue be resolved peacefully by the parties concerned without another shed of blood.

In a relationship, parties must understand that it’s a give and take turns in terms of everything: love, respect, understanding, support and forgiveness. It is hard that there’s only one among the two who always give and never receive anything, with that you will start questioning is it right? Does he or she sincerely love me? Is it still working for both of us? Or end it despite the pain?
KC, I know you are a strong and intelligent woman. There is nothing wrong in loving and fighting for the person we love but it entails pain. At some point we just really need to think if working out the relationship worth it or giving an end will do more good despite the pain. I pray that you find the true love you wished for and always remember that you are blessed with a loving family especially your mom. Ms. Sharon Cuneta. We all deserve to be happy with people we love, who loves us back.

The former president underwent the booking procedures inside her hospital today, Saturday, at around 2 p.m. wearing a hospital gown and a neck brace. It was facilitated by PNP Criminial Investigation and Detection Unit Senior Superintendent Joel Coronel.
I know it’s hard for the former president’s family, her friends and loyal allies in politics to see her on that very moment but the judicial process must takes its course. Charges are filed and as such will prevent her from travelling abroad to seek medical treatment.
Different issues on the said electoral sabotage had been in the news for months and many witnesses came out to divulge their participation. The trial for sure will take longer time to resolve in consideration also of the former president’s condition, aside from gathering enough evidences and witnesses on the alleged massive cheating. But I appreciate the gestures of President Noynoy Aquino to serve justice with a heart.
I never thought that President Aquino is politicking over the former president. It must be a must to every succeeding administration to prosecute any allegations towards former government to serve justice for the Filipino people. And to my fellow Filipinos, let us all be calm amidst these political issues.

It has a maximum length of 1.6m (5 ¼ ft). The AARDVARK is one of the best diggers in the animal world. It uses its powerful claws to make burrows that are more than 10 meters (33 ft) in length.
The PACQUIAO-MARQUEZ 3 fever is still hot and getting hotter but I want to dedicate this article to the pound-for-pound king Manny Pacquiao.
I felt sad for Pacquiao. Yes it was true that his performance as seen by people around the world was not the performance his fans and expectators were expecting, but he said sorry for that. Was that not easy to understand for those people who got disappointed? Pacquiao is still human and had imperfections and shortcomings as such. He may get himself prepared for the fight but anything can happen during the fight. There were issues of failing to have his strength and conditioning exercise, foot cramps, personal issues, political parties, mafia, lifestyle, etc. Can we just help Pacquiao make realize his shortcomings as a boxer in a way he will understand it and uplift his morale. His performance may not be exemplary as compared to his previous fights but he gave what he can during the fight and he did not cheat to win. Grabbing the crown from the depending king is not easy. Marquez performance during the bout maybe considered up compared to Pacquiao but he failed to give and do more to ensure his winning.
Pacquiao was declared as the winner and retained his title. As a Filipino, we have to be proud of and celebrate amidst issues. We just not celebrate his winning because there is a knock-down or blood sprout from his opponent. The bout was a close fight and Pacquiao won, that’s I think the clear issue. But as to whether Pacquiao performed the way he performed on his previous fights is a different and separate issue.
If there is any good we can do for the pound-for-pound king is to pray for him that whatever happens in the recent bout will teach him a lesson and make him the best and wiser boxer.
Congratulations again Manny!!!
I first heard the news over the radio (DZMM) about the TRO issued by the Supreme Court (SC) allowing former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo and his husband Atty. Mike Arroyo to travel abroad and seek medical treatment abroad immediately. SC Spokesman Atty. Midas Marquez said the judges ruled with 8-5 votes stating that the ban was unconstitutional due to lack of charges on any crime and its consistency with the constitutional presumption of innocence.
All I know and understand right now is that as a Filipino people we must stay calm amidst this issue and let the legislative and executive resolve the issue. Let us always work hard every day, be the best we can and continue praying for our country.

Was the recently concluded PACQUIAO-MARQUEZ 3 bout victimized Juan Manuel Marquez of another robbery of what he claimed victory over Manny Pacquiao?
Why another 4th installment? The 4th one will be the most exciting match to watch and will give burning pressure to the 2 fighters to push themselves to the limit for a knock-down. To Marquez, too early to quit and Pacquiao, you made Filipinos proud again. CONGRATULATIONS!!!

In the recent RAMGEN BAUTISTA murder incident, a friend of the victims in the name of WENDELL CUNANAN called Patrol 117 after receiving a text from JANELLE MANAHAN (victim’s girlfriend) stating the incident and that they need police assistance and an ambulance so that they will be taken to the hospital. The emergency dispatcher coordinated the call to Parañaque police and barangay officials of BF Homes, Parañaque.
The saddest part of it is that there are people who are making prank calls to Patrol 117. Let us understand the importance of this hotline and give way to people’s call who really in need of assistance. By not doing so you will be helping them save more lives and attends to the incident immediately.
Doctors of the former president at St. Luke’s Medical Center have said that a tetracycline bone biopsy is unavailable in the country and that’s the reason why the former president needs to seek medical treatment abroad. Former President Arroyo was diagnosed with cervical spondylosis and hypoparathyroidism.
