Netizens Ask in Social Media Networks: Where is The President?

By Alon Calinao Dy: The commander-in-chief, which is the president, is supposedly to give the honor of the fallen heroes in Mamasapano town, Maguindanao, last Sunday.

Although President Aquino called for lawmakers to honor the 44 slain policemen for sacrificing their lives in the service of the country, a lot of people are still asking these days: where is the head of the state when the dead bodies of the SAF members arrived yesterday at the Villamor Air Base in Pasay City?

According to the news report, Pnoy was spotted in Laguna for the inauguration of a Mitsubishi Motors Corporation Plant, rather than meeting the families of the slain SAF members. Vice President Binay, Senator Nancy Binay, Former President Fidel Ramos and other high-ranking military officials were present yesterday to present honor of their heroic acts of courage and bravery.

The Aquino administration denied that they did not intend to disrespect the arrival honors of the brave soldiers, but he was expected to attend another scheduled event. He just brushed aside the critics from the people and media.

Senators Alan Peter Cayetano and JV Ejercito, who are the lawmakers of the Bansang Moro Law, took back their support since the MILF was primarily involved in the killings of these elite SAF members.


Michael Koncz Believes Floyd Mayweather Jr. Is A Sincere Fighter To Fight Pacquiao

By Alon Calinao Dy: Personal adviser of Manny Pacquiao, Michael Koncz, believes that the much-awaited fight between Floyd Mayweather, Jr., and Pacquiao is going to happen this year. He said the upcoming encounter between Floyd and Manny needs a little time to settle everything. He has a strong feeling that the undefeated American is going to fight Pacquiao.

According to the news report, Mayweather and Pacquiao met again at the Miami hotel room for about an hour. The fact that Mayweather agreed to discuss something to Manny is a good sign that he is a sincere fighter who wants to make the bout happen. The fact that Mayweather wants to have a direct communication to Manny is something that every boxing fan should believe that the super fight is going to take place in Las Vegas.

Meanwhile, the team Pacquiao is not talking much about all the details they'd discussed with Mayweather's camp a couple of days ago in Florida. 

Koncz just said that he is hoping everything will be fine in the coming days and the mega-money fight is now possible. As of this moment, he anticipates the two giant TV networks Showtime and HBO will cooperate with one another to speed up any negotiations.

Pacquiao and Koncz won't give any pressures to Mayweather now, knowing that they can talk to him anytime they want because they had his phone number. The war is on, it is just a little time off is needed to fix everything and to come up with an official announcement about the competition.

According to her story, this gay nurse who currently works abroad is sending a lot of money to her boyfriend every now and then. She hardly noticed it from the start because she thought they were just "close friends."

Until one day, she found out that they were dating and more than just friends. Even though she did not bring out the real name of her gay friend on her social media network, she was really pissed off about them. She was mad that her trusted friend and boyfriend cheated her despite they had established a long-term commitment.

She held a resentment because her relationship with boyfriend Bryan ended because of a gay friend who spent more than 100,000 pesos in a romantic date. She further added that the gay nurse was a rich one who has a huge salary in Ministry of Health.

Now she even cursed them. She was very frustrated about what happened, especially to her boyfriend who preferred to love a gay instead of a real girl. But she seems happy now since she saw the true color of her boyfriend.

She said her boyfriend was just after the money, but not a genuine love. She hoped they will burn in hell!

Slain cop's target was alleged Malaysian bomb maker Zulkifli Abdhir, also known as "Marwan," who was one of the most wanted alleged terrorists in the world, with $5 million reward money. 

In an interview with Representative Rodolfo Biazon in Aksyon TV5, a chairman of the house committee on defense, said that the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF), Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters in Barangay (BIFF), and Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF) have different opinions and demands about the Bansang Moro Law.

He also stressed the enormous difficulties of the terrain, which the respondent policemen had no proper coordination with the military and did not really know the land. Lastly, he asked for more time to understand the crisis situation.

DILG Secretary Mar Roxas is now carrying an investigation about the deadly incident in Maguindanao with other cabinet secretaries and high-ranking military officials. The violent death of cops in Maguindanao is said to be one of the deadliest single attack on the Philippine National Police (PNP).

Netizens Put Pressure On Janet Lim-Napoles

By Alon Calinao Dy: Eleven days ago, alleged pork barrel scam mastermind Janet Lim-Napoles celebrated her 51th birthday inside the jail at the Fort Santo Domingo detention facility in Santa Rosa, Laguna. 


Grabbed photo from www.hatawtabloid.com
Away from expensive restaurants in Metro Manila, she had a simple menu for her birthday. It was different from her glamorous birthday celebrations in the past wherein she could order any food she wanted to eat and spend large amounts of money for her family and friends.

On her special day, netizens have asked Mrs. Napoles to tell the whole truth about the alleged misuse of the Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF) Scam. Three other senators allegedly involved in the pork - barrel scam, namely: Bong Revilla, Jinggoy Estrada, and Juan Ponce Enrile.

Netizens also prayed that Napoles should be troubled by her conscience. One person even said that "To stop corruption is to incarcerate the people behind it." Many people blame the lack of government funds is due to rampant corruption in the country. Thus, almost everyone if given an opportunity will steal the people's money.

Do You Agree About The Use Of Condoms Or Natural Family Planning?

By Alon Calinao Dy: The population of the Philippines has increased quickly from 2010 t0 2014. According to the National Statistics Office (NSO) in 2010, the total population of the state is 92,337,852. As of this moment, it is estimated that it is over 100 million in total.


The government is looking for a solution to halt the growth of population since the economy is not much stable and many Filipinos have no stable jobs to sustain their growing families. In fact, the Philippines is at the 12th most populated country in the world, followed by Vietnam and Ethiopia, and continues to rise at a rate of 2% per year.

According to Internet World Stats, China bears the highest population with 1,355,692,576, followed by India and United States who garnered 1,236,344,631 and 318,892,103. Yet, the overpopulation of these three countries went after their fastest growing economies.

The Philippine economy is not enough to alleviate the poverty in the country, and remittances from OFWs around the world play a vital role to help the economy stay afloat.



Solutions to overpopulation

A. The Use Of Condoms- The government is involved in advocating the use of condoms to avoid unnecessary pregnancies among teens. Condoms are also highly effective against sexually transmitted infections (STD) —HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. 

Personally, I don't have a problem using a condom when it helps control the growth of population and STDs. Still, proper education about the use of condoms among sexually actives is needed because some believe that there is no trail if you wear a condom during the actual sexual intercourse.

B. The Method of Natural Family Planning- This strategy helps childbearing women to avoid early and late pregnancies to prevent the risks. It also helps plan married people to have a certain limit of children and make them mindful of their responsibilities as parents. Lastly, it teaches safe sex techniques like a calendar method to keep off any unwanted pregnancy. 

Though Pope Francis said that Catholics do not need to breed "like rabbits," the question is: does everyone have a right self-discipline to implement this? Although the church is preaching the importance of monogamy, another question is: do most people conform to this teaching?

I think it is about time the church needs to be realistic and consider the use of condoms in order to prevent unwanted pregnancy and protect people from sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).

Who Will Be The Next Philippine President in 2016?

By Alon Calinao Dy: 2016 election for president is coming and everyone is wondering who will be the next president of the Philippines. Manila Mayor Joseph "Erap" Ejercito and Vice President Jejomar Binay are the two top contenders who have a huge following to make their dreams come true to be the most powerful person in the country. These political leaders are as superstars as Kobe Bryant and Lebron James in the NBA, and their followers are loyal to support them and would do anything for them.


Since they are both famous, they also have some controversies that need explanations to the public. Erap had been involved in graft and corruptions during his term as a president from June 30, 1998 to January 20, 2001 that led him to imprisonment, but had handed a pardon by former president Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, who now has the same case as Mayor Erap, while Binay allegedly involved in unexplained wealth and overpriced building in Makati City worth more than 2 billion Pesos. 

In the Philippines, it does not matter whether a politician has an impending case or not, just as long as he can generate the majority vote of the masses he is OK with that. When election comes, fame and money matter the most to win the ballot. People easily forget what they have done in our nation, whether it is good or bad. The last thing they remember is the most recent help they receive from them like money or any assistance. 

The fact that this seems like a tradition the politicians do not care much to do the things they love doing. You know what I mean because it starts in letter C and ends up with tion. You can say whatever things about them, but the truth is, it actually does not affect them. It is the same old story that money, power, and fame are important things for them to succeed in their political careers.

But even if people want a big change in our nation, they cannot do so because they have no other choice to look for a good leader who has a better agenda in our land. Politics is too much and affects almost everything in the field of business, religion, etc. Keen observers know how powerful politics are. That is why some politicians who have tasted in the promised land of politics are willing to die just to retain their offices and power.

In this coming 2016 presidential election, do you believe you hold the power to vote an honest leader? If you exercise the power to vote, make yourselves being felt and voices being heard. The problem is, majority vote is coming from the needy. It is about time to properly educate them and help them realize that a real change is in their hands. It is about time to have one and strong voice to battle graft and corruption in the country. 

I know a lot of you would even think that there is no cure for this disease. Please allow yourselves to start a positive change at present and always trust yourself that you can do a lot better for our beloved country.

Brandon Rios On Mayweather vs. Pacquiao Fight

By Alon Calinao Dy: Former WBA lightweight champion Brandon Rios (32-2-1, 23 KOs) is excited to know that the super fight between Floyd Mayweather, Jr. and Manny Pacquiao is finally the main care of boxing enthusiasts.

Rios, who was overcome by the Filipino superstar via unanimous decision last  November 23, 2013, believed that if ever the much-anticipated match happens soon it would be one of the best fights in boxing.

Rios took serious punishment in his loss against Pacquiao, but even though, he was happy to fight the best fighter in the world. He now confirms that Pacquiao is one of a kind fighter. He admitted after the fight in China, he did not face someone like Pacquiao before.

Brandon is scheduled to fight his former opponent Mike Alvarado for the third time on January 24th at the 1stBank Center, in Bloomfield, Colorado, USA.

It is difficult to tell the actual fate of Rios this Saturday night because Mike is willing to do everything to defeat him. Mike thinks that he had done it before in their second encounter, and he is going to do it again.

Sorry For Paulie Malignaggi, Mayweather Chooses Pacquiao

By Alon Calinao Dy: Paulie wanted to fight Mayweather for a big payday, but sad for him because Mayweather is going to fight Manny Pacquiao next. Boxing fans will never spend their money for this fight since they know that Mayweather and Malignaggi are a big mismatch.

Manny is working to meet Mayweather for their much-anticipated and the biggest match in boxing history. Although Paulie is hoping to land a fight against Mayweather, I will say "sorry" for him that these two best fighters are now ready to confront each other in the ring.

Paulie can challenge other boxers to a title fight, but not Mayweather. Mayweather and Pacquiao belong to each other and everyone is praying that the sage would end soon to better find out who is the greatest fighter among them.

Meanwhile, two giant TV networks, Showtime and HBO, are negotiating to make this combat a real one. They have come to a solution that the only way to let it happen is to join forces together.

In other words, the report that the next opponent of Mayweather is Paulie Malignaggi is a hoax.  Mayweather is a magnificent  fighter, not only in the arena, but also when it comes to earning millions of dollars in a single bout.

It is true that Mayweather and Pacquiao are at the final stage of their boxing careers. They both know that if they avoid each other, they will lose a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. That's why I don't see why this fight is not going to materialize since this is a win-win situation for both fighters.

The Daughter Had An Affair With Her Father For 2 Years

By Alon Calinao Dy: An 18-year-old woman from the Great Lakes region revealed during her interview with Science of US that she had a romantic relationship with her father for 2 years and got kids.

The young girl who refused to tell her true identity said that her mother had a bipolar condition. She said her parents separated when her mom was pregnant with her. When she was born, her father was away. 


After her mother gave birth to her, she suffered from a Postpartum depression. She grew up with mom without knowing much about her father. She could barely remember her father, but simply some fun memories when she was between 3 and 4 years old wherein her father visited her.

When she was in high school at age 17, her father reconnected with her through a social media network called Facebook. After they chatted online for several days, they agreed to meet each other. 

Her father invited her to his house and she stayed there for a week. She admitted that she found her dad very attractive because they had a lot of things in common like their preferred TV programs  — The Simpsons and The Big Bang Theory and other things. She acknowledged that she had boyfriends in the past, but had no real interest with them.

She said that they had sex that week and lost her virginity to him. She confessed that she did not regret doing it since she was happy in his arms. Although on her mom's family side was against to their affair,  they wouldn't give up loving each other and tell the whole world.

As of this moment, they are planning to marry each other and move to New Jersey, a State in the US where adult incest is not illegal for a couple like them. She also said she is just looking for a right time to tell her mom about her intimate relationship with her dad.

Pope Francis Delivers A Strong Message in UST

By Alon Calinao Dy: Thousands of people piled up today at the football field of the UST to witness the powerful message of Pope Francis with his "Encounter With The Youth" scheduled visit. 

The crowd felt the strong presence of the Holy Father, who taught Filipinos to learn how to cry and beg for the mercy of Jesus Christ.


At the outset of his homily, he asked the crowd to pray for the soul of Krystal, a woman who was killed during his visit in Tacloban City yesterday because of Typhoon Amang (Tropical Storm Mekkhala). The victim was a volunteer of the religious organization within the area, and was the only daughter of an OFW. 

Of all the powerful messages of Pope Francis, one speech touched the hearts of thousands of Filipinos when he said with confidence: "To think well, to feel well, and to do well." 

I tried to interpret what he wanted to say for everyone. The pope wanted to tell us to use our knowledge to help the needy and to use our loving hearts to forgive people who have wronged against us, putting all the good words into action.

The papal visit is really a blessing for many Filipinos. Some pilgrims even said that they are blessed to have been among the thousands of Filipinos who watched up close the beloved pontiff.

I am sure the Vicar of Christ on earth felt the warm welcome of millions of Filipinos not in the Philippines but around the world. His presence here in the Philippines energizes Filipinos to love one another and invariably think the welfare of their neighbor.

Let us not forget the true essence of his visit and let us put all the teachings of God not merely through words but into action.


Do You Have A Convincing Power?

By Alon Calinao Dy: The power of persuasion is real. It is believed that every human being has a convincing force. Others think they are born to have it to make people say "yes" for their demands.


In today's society, the act of convincing power is not being talked about by a lot of people. I tell you what, it is true and it can touch on the lives of many people even though nobody will believe that it exists.

Men who usually have the skills of persuasion can be potentially dangerous for women, and vice versa. The reason why I said this because I have personally gone through it. I don't want to sound boastful, but I speak the truth. 

When was the last time you court your crush? The act of courtship needs the ability of persuasion in order to win the heart of that special someone. That's why the one who has it can be potentially dangerous for the same and opposite sex if it is being used for sexual pleasure alone.

Did you know that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., the father of African-American Civil Rights Movements, is best known to use persuasive techniques in non-violent methods to attain civil rights for African-Americans?

Did you know that Julius Caesar would not be a successful leader if he had no power of persuasion? He successfully united and influence the minds of his people. Just like Shakespeare, he applied the power of persuasive speaking to shape the opinions of the people.

Lastly, did you recognize the name Adolf Hitler, who misused his power of persuasion to cause World War II? Hitler once said, “everything I have accomplished I owe to persuasion.” I don't think he could do it alone without his innate talent.

Pope Francis Blesses The Country Of The Philippines

By Alon Calinao Dy: Pope Francis arrived in the Philippines yesterday at roughly 5:45 p.m. via SriLankan Airlines,  which thousands of Catholic people came to see His Holiness. The event became successful and the most eminent figure of the Catholic church was delighted about the warm welcome of the Filipino people.

The pontiff's energy is extraordinary as he has no reluctance to approach some of the marginalized Filipinos to give his blessings. At age 78,  he is still strong to perform his duties and obligations as a Holy Father and a representative of  our Lord Jesus Christ. He also completed all the scheduled activities today, with the good will of God.

The papal visit is a blessing in the country to remind our leaders to stay just with their work and to battle the never-ending corruption in the country. The itinerary of Pope Francis to Tacloban tomorrow, would be his primary concern. One of the activities is to light a candle to bless a mass grave in the wake of super typhoon Yolanda last November 8, 2013.

When Pope Francis landed in the Philippines, I knew in my heart that this is what Yolanda victims have been waiting for. Although I have not seen him personally, my wife and I included him in our prayers that he can deliver his mission to the miserable people. 

I hope Filipinos will remember the visit of our beloved pontiff. I hope Filipino leaders will recognize that money and power are not the only important things in this world, but also the force of love, deep understanding, and devotion for those who are in need.

I hope and pray to stop corruption in all levels of the government, including the private sectors just what our dearest Pope Francis wanted to happen in our nation.
