The Pentagon Was Shocked At What President Trump Told President Duterte

Image
U.S. President Donald Trump called Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte on April 29, 2017 and their conversation revolved around the problem with North Korea and with Kim Jong Un's nuclear ambition.

Pentagon officials however are in shock after a transcript of their conversation was released on May 23, 2017. Pentagon officials are very careful about discussing the movement of their submarines as is it their military's belief that their stealth is the key to their mission.

In their conversation, President Trump told President Duterte that the U.S. has two nuclear submarines in the area. Trump said: "We have two submarines -- the best in the world -- we have two nuclear submarines -- no that we want to use them at all."


They also talked about China and how China is the key to keeping North Korea in check. Duterte said he will call China's President Xi Jinping. Duterte told Trump: "I will try to make a call to President Xi Jinping and I will try to tell him if …

Mark Zuckerberg posted his Q&A on his Facebook page. It appears his Mandarin proficiency is a result of his annual self improvement challenges. Every year, Zuckerberg picks a skill or a goal to pursue with extreme focus. This year, the plan was to write one thoughtful thank-you note every day. In 2010, his aim was to learn Mandarin.

Watch his Q&A.

Bonifacio Global City Guards Arresting Two British Nationals

Image
This video shows that Bonifacio Global City (BGC) guards arresting two British Nationals. According to the report, the 2 Englishmen (Sam and Chris) where skateboarding along Fifth Avenue when two lady policewomen instructed them nicely that they could not skate there and told them to do it at the park, which they did.

According to the Englismen, while at the park, a lady marshal shown on 1:16 of the video stopped them rudely. They explained to the marshal that the policewomen told them they can skate there. The marshal called for backup and confiscated their skateboard. One of the Englishman (Sam) said he got scared and ran off. The marshals successfully caught him as shown in the video.


According to a comment by Julie on the When In Manilapage. She said,

I was there at the park when it started. A lady guard was asking them nicely to transfer since the park is not intended for skateboarders. The simple argument went wild when one of the foreigners went amok and hit the lady guard sever…

Man with Armalite Riding in Tandem

Image
You ever read about the news about how our politicians are trying to stop crimes being by criminals riding on motorcycles? You know, the ones where they say that riding in tandem is going to be banned. And how they also want to ban motorcyclist from wearing helmets so they can't hide their identity.

Well...what the hell do you want to call this?

This photo was taken along Abad Santos where a man was spotted riding a motorcycle, in tandem, carrying an armalite.





I guess they want to make a law banning riding in a motorcycle with an armalite next.

Old Photos of Manila - University of Santo Tomas

Image
I found a couple of old photos of the University of Santo Tomas or UST. UST is the oldest university in Asia. It was founded on April 28, 1611 by Miguel de Benavides, Archibishop of Manila. It is a private, Roman Catholic teaching and research university.

Here are some photos I found on UST's Facebook page.


This photo shows UST during the post-war era (1945-1946) when the Sampaloc area of Manila didn't have any high-rise buildings and Calesas were allowed along España Boulevard.

This photo belongs to the personal collection of John Tewell. It was originally taken by an aid to Gen. Douglas MacArthur.


This is a photo of the UST main building during the pre-war years. It wasn't called the main building at the time as it was the only building on campus.

VP Binay's World Class Parking Building

Image
Vice President Jejomar Binay built a parking building for the city of Makati when he was the mayor. The building is now under investigation for being overpriced after being found to have cost P2.7B to build an 11 storey parking building.

Senators Trillanes IV and Koko Pimentel III conducted and ocular inspection of the building on Monday, Sept 1, 2014.

Obviously, the building is way overpriced. We can all understand if it is over budget, since most constructions do become over budget especially if it is done by the government. However, being over P1B over-budget (according to some estimates) is just outright robbery.

When grilled during a Senate hearing committe, Mayor Junjun Binay said the reason for the price is because the Makati City Hall 2 is a world-class.

Here are some of the reactions from the online community about the building


After the fierce reaction of the online community, Senator Nancy Binay argues what "world-class" means. She said that "beauty is in the…

The Imitation Game - Official UK Teaser Trailer

This looks like a good movie.

From the Youtube description.

The Imitation Game is a nail-biting race against time following Alan Turing (pioneer of modern-day computing and credited with cracking the German Enigma code) and his brilliant team at Britain's top-secret code-breaking centre, Bletchley Park, during the darkest days of World War II. Turing, whose contributions and genius significantly shortened the war, saving thousands of lives, was the eventual victim of an unenlightened British establishment, but his work and legacy live on.

THE IMITATION GAME stars Benedict Cumberbatch (Star Trek Into Darkness, TV's Sherlock) as Alan Turing and Keira Knightley (Atonement) as close friend and fellow code-breaker Joan Clarke, alongside a top notch cast including Matthew Goode (A Single Man), Mark Strong (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy), Rory Kinnear (Skyfall), Charles Dance (Gosford Park, TV's Game of Thrones), Allen Leech (In Fear, TV's Downton Abbey) and Matthew Beard (An Ed…

Why Are People Still Supporing Senator Bong Revilla?

Image
Senator Bong Revilla turned himself in at the Sandiganbayan on Friday amid shrieking fans and supporters. He was waving and smiling to his fans like it was a movie premiere.

As his mugshot was taken, he was also seen smiling like it was a pictorial.


Prior to that, he was seen wearing a T-shirt with the bible verse "The Lord is on my side; I will not fear: What can man do unto me? - Psalm 118:6".


Really? He really thinks that God supports him for stealing millions of funds from the people who are homeless and hungry because of him? Are we to believe that he is innocent that he hasn't stolen a single centavo from the Pork Barrel funds?

What appalls me is that even with all the evidence and knowledge that he stole money from the people. These people still support him.


Why do Filipinos do this? Is it because he's a movie star? Shouldn't the people be cursing him and spitting at him for ruining their lives? As long as we as a nation continue supporting politicians as …

Isang taon palang ako,

Grade 2 walong taon palang,
apat na bata ang inaalagaan.
Grade 6 labing dalawa na ako,
kasing dami na ng pamilya ko.
Sabi mo pasensya na,
walang pera kaya magdrop out ka.

Ina ko sabi mo kami'y mahal nyo,
aray ko bat di kayo nagplano.
Sana di gutom at nag aaral pa,
alaga't malusog ang buong pamilya.

Propagating Herbs

Image
When I get into something, I tend to get obsessive about it. I read a lot of books and websites to learn as much as I can on something I want to do. Since starting my herb garden, I've read countless websites and borrowed a bunch of books from the library to learn more. I've never really did any successful gardening before. The strawberry plant I got a few years ago died in a few weeks when birds ate all the strawberries and it didn't survive in the summer.

Now, I learned some new techniques and I think learning to propagate (breed/spread) plants is a great way to expand what you have from one plants to several to have more success.

But the thing that I discovered that really helps is putting a cover on young plants. It's not a new idea, but I didn't really see any websites suggesting this. I got this idea more when I visited a greenhouse and saw how healthy the plants were. I thought I could simulate it on a small scale by putting covers in my plants.

Herb Garden

Image
I found a new hobby growing a herb garden. It kind of started when I was young when I heard the song Scarborough Fair by Simon and Garfunkel. I was kind of intrigue with the part of the lyrics where it says "parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme". I wondered what they were when I was young and learned they were herbs and I learned that herbs are used for medicine and cooking. We never actually used those herbs in Filipino food other than parsley when it's used mostly as a garnish.

Later, when I got older and learned how to cook. I learned that it's used mostly in Italian cooking. When I saw some TV show by Jamie Oliver called Jamie at Home where he shows one major ingredient per show and in some episodes, he shows his garden with potatoes, tomatoes and herbs which he uses for his cooking. It was a really interesting show and I really got interested in starting a herb garden of my own. Well, I don't have a garden, I just have a patio so I never really got anything sta…
