3 Cost Effective Ways to Solve Metro Manila's Traffic Problem

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…

Thank You All For Your Educational E-mails

Got this from a friend.

=======================

I want to thank you all for your educational e-mails over the past year.
I am totally messed up now and have little chance of recovery.

I can no longer open a bathroom door without using a paper towel,
Nor let the waitress put lemon slices in my ice water without worrying
About the bacteria on the lemon peel.

I can't sit down on a hotel bedspread because I can only imagine
What has happened on it since it was last washed.

I have trouble shaking hands with someone who has been driving
Because the number one pastime while driving alone is picking one's nose.

Eating a little snack sends me on a guilt trip because I can only
Imagine how many gallons of Trans fats I have consumed over the years.

I can't touch any woman's handbag for fear she has placed it on
The floor of a public toilet.

I must send my special thanks for the email about rat poo
In the glue on envelopes because I now have to use a wet sponge with
Every…

Worlds Toughest Cops - Philippines

Image
Plot: Murder, political unrest, armed robbery, drugs and terrorism - just part of everyday life in the Philippines. At the heart of the country lies Manila, a teeming metropolis of crime. Cameras follow the front line officers who police the dangerous slums of the city, and SWAT cops tell how they hunted down and killed the country's most wanted terrorist. Also, Manila's homicide unit hunts the killers of two of their team.

Here's the news story showing both sides of the story between the LRT2 Guard and Paula Jamie Salvosa, the lady who shouted at the guard. Let's give her the benefit of the doubt.


In this age of cellphone cameras, whatever you do in public can easily be shared to the world. Unfortunately, it's always the bad things that happens that gets highlighted.

Ms. Amalayer

Image
I saw this video being posted on Facebook. The story is this, this lady passenger on the LRT was apparently was told by the lady guard to go to the other line since she was on the wrong line. She apparently got mad and started yelling at the guard.

A bystander took a video of the event and it's now trending.

Here's the video.


The lady is now being called Ms. Amalayer (I'm a liar) because of her repeated use of the word.

Of course, Filipinos, being the ingenious people that they are have created a parody of the incident.


And of course, there's a Manga made of her.

So how can you top this? By combining the popular Gangnam Style with Amalayer.

Sotto apologizes to Kennedy family but denies plagiarizing speeches

From GMA News.

Senate Majority Floor Leader Vicente Sotto III on Tuesday apologized for upsetting the Kennedy family but maintained that he did not plagiarize parts of his speeches.

In a privilege speech on Tuesday, Sotto answered the allegations made against him by 37 individuals who filed an ethics complaint against him earlier in the day for alleged plagiarism.

He reiterated that he never claimed parts of his speech as his own and that he always said he got them from other sources.

"Wala po akong inangkin so papaano po ako mag-a-apologize ng plagiarism eh wala po akong plinagiarize... sinabi ko ngang hindi akin... para hong pinagpiplead guilty ako sa murder eh ang dapat charge physical injuries," he said.

Sotto said his accusers are still basing their allegation on the draft copy of his speech where his blanket attribution was not yet included.

"Maliwanag po doon sa tatlong turno en contra speeches ko [na] ilang ulit ko pong sinabi and the journal will bear me out w…

Kennedy to Sotto: 'This is a clear case of plagiarism'

From Rappler.com

MANILA, Philippines - Long is the saga of Sottogate, yet allegations against Senator Tito Sotto continue.

Now 4 US copyright holders have spoken out, including the president of the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights: RFK’s daughter, Kerry Kennedy.

All this began again the other day, when Sarah Pope, Janice Formichella, and Peter Engelman issued a joint statement alleging that Sotto had “infringed on our intellectual property rights and plagiarized.”

Their protest was swiftly dismissed by Sotto and his staff, who, according to GMA News, “questioned its authenticity, pointing out that it did not even have an official letterhead.”

This, after Sotto’s chief of staff, Hector Villacorta, reportedly said they would address the issue only after the aggrieved parties complained.

Complain they have, in no uncertain terms. Yet when Formichella wrote about the issue in Ms. Magazine, Sotto churlishly said: “She is pathetic. She is just riding on to get famous.”
