Image
The Facebook page of ANC 24/7 is asking for its reader's suggestion on how to solve Metro Manila's traffic problem.


This got me thinking, "what is the best way to solve Metro Manila's traffic problem?" It's easy to make suggestions, what's hard is the implementation and the cost of implementation. So what is the the best way to solve Metro Manila's traffic problem and the most cost effective solution?

Punitive Fines
First of all, any implementation will definitely cost money, a lot of money. The cause of the traffic mess is the people themselves so it's only right that those causing the traffic problem should be fined and the fine should hurt. That way, the fines will pay for the cost of enforcing the law.
The fines should start at P500 and goes up every week if you don't pay it within 15 days. To enforce this and prevent people from ignoring the fine. It will be tied to their driver's license or car registration. They cannot renew their d…

Bob Arum Worried About Manny Pacquiao's Mental State: Fan Reaction

From Yahoo! Sports.

Given the multiple problems WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao has had to deal with ever since his November victory against Juan Manuel Marquez (backlash after the controversial decision, legal problems in the Philippines, and few problems with his camp), many boxing fans are worried about his mental state going into his June 9 bout against undefeated Timothy Bradley.

Even Pacquiao's promoter, Bob Arum, is concerned about the WBO welterweight champs' current mental state, and he shared his thoughts during the premier episode of HBO's "The Fight Game with Jim Lampley."

"Bradley is a terrific fighter," Arum said. "He's undefeated. He poses a tremendous challenge for Manny Pacquiao. And my problem is what Pacquiao are we going to see? You have to understand, since the last fight last November, he has become a totally different person. He's super religious. He does bible study every night. Sometimes I get the impression that I'm promoting Rick Santorum, and not Manny Pacquiao. But be that as it may, who knows what effect it will have on his ring ability on June 9th?"

Arum certainly has every right to be concerned about Pacquiao, considering the fact he'll need to bring his A-game against Bradley. With a professional record of 28-0-0, Bradley might not be as accomplished as the Filipino congressman, but he's definitely not an easy fight for anyone. A win against Pacquiao will transform Bradley into a superstar in the sport, and there is no question he'll be looking to make history when the two square up at the MGM Grand.

Bradley isn't naive about the politics of boxing either, and he knows he'll have to stop Pacquiao if he wants to walk away victorious.
"In order to be the champion you've got to take chances in the ring," Bradley said during the latest episode of HBO's "Faceoff with Max Kellerman". "You've got to take chances. I'm here to win. I'm not here to just lay down for a paycheck. I'm here to win. If I've got to fight toe-to-toe with Manny Pacquiao, so be it. … I'm here to win. I've got to hurt him."
