10-anyos na bata, mag-isang binubuhay ang sarili sa pagtatanim ng gulay


 Isang batang sampung taong gulang ang kahanga-hangang na binubuhay mag-isa ang kanyang sarili sa ginta ng bukid matapos sumakabilang buhay ang kanyang mahal na lola at tatay.


Ayon sa China Press, kinilala ang bata na si Dang Van Khuyen, mula sa bansang Vietnam na nabubuhay mula sa kanyang mga panamin na gulay sa bukid.


Maliit pa lamang si Khuyen ay ulila na ito sa kanyang nanay at ang kanyang tatay naman ay nagtatrabaho sa malayong lugar kung kaya naman hindi niya ito kasama sa kanilang bahay.


Ang tanging kasamang namumuhay ni Khuyen sa kanilang  munting tahanan ay ang kanyang mahal na lola, namuhay ng simple habang ang tatay naman ni Khuyen ay minsang lang magpadala ng pera bilang suporta sa bata.


Sa kasamaang palad, Hindi na pa nag tagal ang kanyang lola sumalangit na at iniwan na siya dala narin ng katandaan.


Lumipas ang ilang araw ay isa pang malungkot na balita ang natanggap ni Khuyen dahil nadisgrasya ang kanyang ama sa kanyang trabaho dahilan din ng pagkawala nito.


Dahil dito ay walang ibang pagpipilian si Khuyen kundi tatagan ang kanyang loob pero sa kabila ng bigat ng kanyang dinaranas, hindi nagpatinag si Khuyen sa mga hamon sa kanyang buhay, bagkus ay mas lalo pa niyang nilakasan ang kanyang loob.


Sa kabila ng lahat, hindi parin pinapabayaan ni Khuyen ang kanyang pag-aaral at hindi ito umaabsent sa pagpasok sa paaralan at nagsimulang mag tanim ng nga gulay.

Shopping malls in Taipei's Xinyi District, including Taipei 101 and those operated by Shin Kong Mitsukoshi and the Breeze Group, have decided to cancel parties and outdoor markets on New Year's Eve in view of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Mountains in Taipei including Yangmingshan and Taipingshan in Yilan likely to see snow as cold surge hits Taiwan



There are chances of snow on Dec. 30, in mountains higher than 1,000 meters in northern Taiwan, thanks to abundant moisture and a cold surge, the Central Weather Bureau (CWB) said Saturday.


The cold and wet air will send temperatures to 8-11 degrees Celsius in northern Taiwan, while mountainous and coastal areas there will see lows between 5-8 degrees, the bureau said.


Wu Der-rong, an adjunct associate professor of atmospheric sciences at National Central University, said snow fans could try Datun and Qixing mountains in Taipei from the evening of Dec. 30, but cautioned that the amount is expected to be small.


Besides the north, there are also chances of snow in Taiping Mountain in eastern Taiwan's Yilan County between late Dec. 30 and early Dec. 31, Wu said.


Temperatures in mountains ranging from 800 to 2,000 meters above sea level could dip to minus 2-4 degrees, and as a result, even if there is not enough moisture to form snow, there could be other forms of precipitation, such as rime ice, he said.


According to the CWB, the effect of the cold surge is forecast to last into New Year's Day, when temperatures are expected to rise with clearer skies. -Central News Agency

Pres. Duterte wants death penalty but decision is up to congress


President Rodrigo Duterte wants to restore the capital punishment in the Philippines but his plan would only be possible once he gets the support of lawmakers, Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said in a virtual Palace press briefing on Tuesday.


According to Harry Roque that the President’s stand is clear. He favors death penalty, especially for wide-scale drug trafficking. But that is still up to the lawmakers.


Public outcry for the reimposition of death penalty was revived after seeing the video of a shooting incident in Tarlac involving a police officer went viral on social media.


In the viral video, Police Senior M/Sgt. Jonel Nuezca shot dead Sonya Gregorio, 52, and her son Frank Anthony, 25, following a heated argument in Paniqui, Tarlac on Sunday.


Nuezca already surrendered and is now facing double murder charges, a non-bailable offense.

PH possible to return under lockdown amid new COVID-19 strain, Duterte says


 President Rodrigo Duterte said on Saturday that the Palace could place the Philippines under lockdown again in case the new COVID-19 strain first detected in the United Kingdom and spreads in the country.


"Actually iyong lockdown is a possibility. I said we are making some projections. But if the severity in numbers would demand that we take corrective measures immediately, then we'll just have to go back to lockdown," said Duterte during a meeting with members of the IATF on COVID-19 and health experts in Malacanang.


The President, however, clarifies that making the country under a lockdown will "depend on the severity in number... in the meantime we are not able to confront them effectively kasi 'pag marami na ang cases with the new variant and we do not have the antidote how to kill those variants, we have a problem there."


Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana said the government might enforce a tighter lockdown, but not after the IATF agrees on a "threshold."


During the same meeting, Health Secretary Francisco Duque III on Saturday announced that one of the 79 passengers that arrived in the Philippines from the UK have tested positive for the COVID-19, though it is not yet known whether or not the person was carrying the new strain.


"It also didn’t mean the new strain would cause greater sickness or affect the effectiveness of existing COVID-19 vaccines,” Duque said.


The President, meanwhile, assured that the Department of the Interior and Local Government and local government units would make travelers comply with a mandatory 14-day quarantine as recommended to them by the IATF.

Sinas, hindi pinapayagan na kumuha ng photo at video ang mga witness


 Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Police General Debold Sinas sinabi noong Lunes na may babala sa mga taong kumukuha ng video at larawan sa pinangyarihan ng krimen.


"I think nasa mga tao po 'yun, sa mga witness na kumuha (ng video and photos). I will not advise because very tricky 'yun. Baka mamaya kumuha ka ng video tapos baka mababalingan ka, so sa inyo po 'yun," aniya ni Sinas.


"If I may suggest, kung may mga ganoong incident, we just witness at saka ‘wag na tayo mag-interfere lalo na pag armed or dangerous 'yung suspect or 'yung mga involved," dag-dag pa nito


Kung may insidente na ganon dapat raw na idala itp agad sa mga investigators at magtestify na ikaw ang kumuha para hindi na ito matamper pa.


Sinabi ni Sinas ang insidente nabanggit na mabibigyan ng hustisya ang mga biktima na sina Sonya Rufino Gregorio at kanyang anak na si Frank Anthony. Gayunman, sinabi ng punong PNP na ang insidente ay isang nakahiwalay na kaso.

Pinaghihirapan yun ng mga OFW sa kung saan saang panig ng mundo" Sinabi Rachelle sa post.

Raffy Tulfo nagbigay babala kapag dinismiss ang kaso ni Jonel Nuezca


 Sinisigurado ni Idol Raffy Tulfo na makakamit ng mag-ina na si Aling Sonya at Frank ang hustisya matapos silang walang awang barilin ng isang pulis na si Jonel Nuezca.


Nakarating na rin kay Raffy Tulfo na patong-patong na kaso na ang isinampa sa pulis na si Jonel Nuezca ngunit karamihan dito ay na-dismiss dahil di umano sa kakulangan ng ebidensya.


Babala ni Raffy Tulfo na "'Pag dinismiss niyo po itong kaso, magkakagulo ang Pilipinas. I'm telling you!"  


"I'm giving you a warning, ang buong Pilipinas magkakagulo, kasi po dun sa dalawa na pumatay siya ng tao na-dismiss po di po ba? Tuloy tuloy parin ang pagsisilbi niya sa korte" dagdag pa ni Tulfo


Ngayong may mabigat na ebidensyang hawak ang pamilya ng mga biktima, sisiguraduhin ni Tulfo na tutulong sila na makamit ang hustisya.

Duterte will not protect cop who killed woman and son in Tarlac


 The Malacañang said on Monday that the President Rodrigo Duterte will not protect the policeman who shot dead woman and her son during an argument in Paniqui, Tarlac on Sunday, an incident that sparked widespread calls for an end to alleged police brutality.


Police Senior Master Sergeant Jonel Nuezca, 46 years old, shot Sonya Gregorio, 52 years old, and her son Frank Anthony, 25 years old, after they argued over the victims' use of a homemade cannon in their hometown Paniqui.


This incident was "not service-related," said spokesman Harry Roque said.


"We are condemning what happened there in Tarlac. That policeman cannot invoke any defense that the killing is linked to his official duty," Roque added.


We will investigate, file charges, try and punish that policeman -- no ifs, not buts. There will be justice because we saw evidence of what happened. The President will not protect that.
