Rider na nakipagtalo sa enforcer, nagbantang kakasuhan si Erwin Tulfo


 Matapos makipag-alitan sa traffic enforcer dahil sa hindi matanggap na traffic violation, nagbanta naman ngayon si Billy Jack na sasampahan nito ng kaso ang TV host na si Erwin Tulfo kung hindi ito titigil sa pagbibigay komento patungkol sa kaniya.


“Erwin Tulfo, stop it or less I am obliged to file a casê against you, the wrít of habêas dâta. Okay baka hindi mo naintindihan ‘yun kasi b0b0 ka… I search mo ‘yun,” sabi ni Billy Jack.


Nag-ugat ang pahayag niyang ito matapos sabihin ni Tulfo na baka mayroong problema sa pag-iisip si Jack kung kaya hindi na dapat siyang patulan.


"Hindi ka naman mapag-uusapan dito kunv wala kang ginawang kalokohan," giit pa ni Tulfo.


Sa kabilang banda, nanawagan din si Jack sa Angeles Police na huwag magpagamit kay Tulfo.

"Tunay na pagbabago": Blogger, nagbigay saloobin sa pagkapangulo ni Pres. Duterte


Viral ngayon sa social media ang isang Filipino blogger matapos nitong maglabas ng saloobin kung bakit nga ba nahalal bilang lider ng Pilipinas si Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte.


Sa pamamagitan ng Facebook post, sinabi ni Noel Landero Sarifa na tanging si Pres. Duterte lamang ang naging lider ng bansa na may tunay na malasakit sa bayan at sa kaniyang mamamayan.


Giit niya, nailuklok sa kaniyang pwesto ang Pangulo dahil siya lamang ang may kakayahang mag-angat sa Pilipinas sa kabila ng mga nakaambang panganib, katiwalian sa gobyerno, pang-aabuso sa kalikasan, droga at maging sa pandemya.


"Kaya nanalo si PRRD sa panahong halos kinakawawa na tayo ng mga ahensya ng gobyerno na halos impyerno na ang pila at serbisyo dahil ihahatid nya ang tunay na pagbabago," saad ni Sarifa sa kaniyang post.


Dahil dito, marami ang sumang-ayon at marami rin naman ang umalma kung kaya hanggang ngayon ay patuloy itong umaani ng diskusyon mula sa iba't-ibang panig ng bansa.

Napilitang ibalik ang paghihigpit ng ating pangulo dahil na rin sa New Variant, "Ang sa akin is as a precaution because there is a strain discovered in the Cordillera that is very similar sa strain dito sa United Kingdom. How it got there is beyond me. Hindi ko talaga alam bakit dumating doon," saad ni Duterte.


"Balik ho muna kayo sa bahay muna, and besides, 'yung 10 years old to 14, itong mga mas matanda na, mahirap i-manage pero itong mga 10, 11, 12, puwede na sila sa TV. They can glue their attention sa TV the whole day," dagdag pa ni Duterte.


Dati ang mga edad 15 hanggang 65 lamang ang pinahihintulutan na lumabas maliban sa pagtatrabaho, pagkuha o pagbili ng mga kailangan at mag bakasyon sa ilang mga lugar.


Ayon kay Presidential spokeperson Haryy Roque, ang pangatlong beses na naghigpit sa 4 na antas ng lockdown, ay hinihimok na payagan din ang mga bata na 10 hanggang 14 na taong gulang na lumabas.


Base naman sa isang public health expert na nagbigay siya ng babala sa mga bata at maaari silang tawaging “superspreaders”ng COVID-19 kung papayagan silang lumabas ng bahay.

A Taiwanese businessman in Taichung, central Taiwan who returned from China on Jan. 21 and has been in quarantine is likely to face a heavy fine of no less than NT$500,000 after going outside seven times in violation of quarantine regulations, Taichung Mayor Lu Shiow-yen said Monday.


Lambasting the businessman's conduct as a serious offense that endangers the health and safety of his family, neighbors and the whole city, Lu said such behavior will absolutely not be tolerated.


According to Taiwan's quarantine regulations, all travelers entering the country are required to undergo 14 days of quarantine during which they are prohibited from going outside, Lu said. However, the businessman went out seven times while in quarantine.


The city government has since transferred the man to a designated group quarantine facility and will issue a minimum fine of NT$500,000, according to the mayor.


Individuals who violate quarantine regulations are subject to fines ranging from NT$100,000 to NT$1 million in accordance with the Special Act for Prevention, Relief and Revitalization Measures for Severe Pneumonia with Novel Pathogens, Lu added.


When asked how the city plans to respond to the increasing number of domestic cases of COVID-19 linked to a recent cluster infection at Taoyuan General Hospital, where the number of cases had increased to 15 as of Sunday, Lu said she has ordered the suspension or cancellation of events to be attended by more than 100 people. She also urged citizens to wear masks when taking part in outdoor activities.


"Regardless of where you are from, we are all Taiwanese," Lu emphasized, saying that the city government will continue to support and provide assistance to Taoyuan. -Central News Agency

Agaw pansin ang mag-inang nasa kalsada malapit sa labas ng BDO bank Imus branch palengke  mapapansin dito na hindi marunong mag alaga ng bata ang ina, hindi marunong humawak ng bata at hindi rin ito marunong magtimpla ng gatas.


Ayon sa post ni Marilou Nalliasca, nakakaawang tignan ang mag ina dahil kung makikita ang dala niyang baby pa gapang gapang ito sa kalsada at wala diaper o short, napakaruming nitong tignan at pulang pula ang kanyang maselang bahagi ng kanyang katawan.


Nang mag tanong ang nag post ng laraw nagulat ito sa sinapit ng batang ina at napaluha nalamang ito dahil wala raw itong bahay kaya nakatira siya sa gilid ng kalsada at ang nakakagulat pa ang tatay ng kanyang anak ay ang mismong stepfather niya kaya napilitan itong lumayas sa kanilang bahay.


Meron pang gustong sabihin ang batang ina ngunit hindi raw niya ito maderetchong sabihin “may gusto pa siyang sabihin saakin eh kaso hindi na niya tinuloy pero naiisip ko naman kung ano yon nalulungkot nalang ako sa nangyari at naaawa sa mag ina”sinabi Marilou.


Kaya si Marilou nag madaling maghanap ng pwede niyang ibigay sa mag-ina kase gusto talaga niyang tumulong sa mag ina, bumili ito ng tinapay at ng mga damit dahil malamig ang panahon baka magkasakit pa sila ngunit katapos niyang bumili bigla nalang nawala ang mag-ina sa kanilang pwede pero hindi sumuko si Marilou at hinanap niya at ibinigay ang pagkain at mga damit.

Duterte eyes buying of new choppers for soldiers after bukidnon crash


President Duterte’s plan came after a UH-1H “Huey” combat utility aircraft helicopter crashed in Impasug-ong, Bukidnon on January 16, killing five military personnel and two militiamen.


The “Hueys,” short for the UH-1H and UH-1D models, are Vietnam War-era helicopters that have been refurbished. They serve as the main workhorse of the Philippine Air Force.


"How many Huey helicopters do we still have? I want those replaced. They are already outdated,” Duterte said.


President had already entered into a deal for the procurement of new helicopters. He, however, did not elaborate on the agreement.


I will buy six or seven helicopters to replace the Huey cargo helicopters. I already had a deal,” Duterte said.


The President admitted he was "hurt" when he heard about the helicopter crash in Bukidnon that killed 7, including 5 military officers, and that he would look for funds to replace the air assets.


"I was hurt with the crash because I am the country's administrator then that happened under my watch. It is hurtful." Deterte explained.

 Health Secretary Francisco Duque III, susubukang hikayatin si President Rodrigo Roa Duterte na ipakita sa publiko kapag magpapaturok na ng gamot sa COVID-19 para maging buo ang tiwala ng mamamayan sa gagamiting gamot.



Sinabi ni Duque kay senator Nancy Binay na gagawin ang lahat ng makakaya nila para makumbise si President Duterte para makapag vaccine na siya at dapat natin respetuhin kung man ang kanyang desisyon.



Nung una sinabi ni President Duterte na handa siyang mauna sa pagtuturok ng COVID-19 vaccine ngunit makakailan lang sinabi niya na mauna muna raw ang mahihirap at mga frontliners.



Nakikita naman natin na marami din ang mga presidente na handang magpaturok ng COVID-19 sa publiko katulad nalamang ni Joe Biden ng USA at Joko Widodo ng Indonesia.



Ayon kay presidential spokeperson Harry Roque na gagayahin na lamang ni President Duterte si Queen Elizabeth II ng UK, Sasabihin nalang na nag patusok at huwag na itong ipakita sa publiko.



Batay sa Pulse Asia survey, 32% lang ng mga Pinoy ang handang magpabakuna, at 47% ang nag-aalangan na magpaturok ng bakuna.

Photo from Robinson Niñal

 President Rodrigo Duterte gives the thumbs up after checking one of the national ID following his submission in the registration process for the National Identification System administered by the Philippine Statistics Authority(PSA) at the Palace on January 21, 2021.


President Duterte in 2018 signed into law the PhilSys Act that mandated the government to create a identification card for all citizens and foreign residents that would serve as a de facto national identification number.


Executive secretary Salvador Mandela and long-time partner of President Duterte, Senator Bong Go were also seen having registered national ID.


PSA is mandated to lead the ID system with support from a policy board chaired by the National Economic and Development Authority and composed of various government agencies.


Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas Governor Benjamin Diokno and other officials are accused of graft and violating the Government Procurement Act for allegedly awarding the P1.75-billion supply contract for the nationals ID without public bidding.


Duterte and his Cabinet in December approved a "3.52-billion additional budget for 2021 to register 20 million more individuals (on top of the 50 million target) to the Philippine Identification System," said Roque.

Habang nakapila si Jeff tinanong niya ang security guard kung masama ba ang pakiramdam ng bata ang hindi pala niya alam isa palang premature ang batang dala-dala ng security guard kaya natunaw ang puso ni Jeff at humanga sa ama na security guard.


“Bihira lang mangyare ang ipagsabay ang pagtatrabaho habang nag-aalaga ng bata at kaya pang ngumiti ng security guard” ayon sa caption ng larawan na pinost ni jeff.


Maraming netizens ang humanga sa pagiging mabuting ama ng security guard , marami din ang nagkomento sa post at pinupuri ang employer ng pawnshop dahil naiintindihan nila na kailangan alagaan ang kanyang anak at kailngan itong ingatan. 


“God will bless you for being a good father, I salute you!” komento ng isang facebook user.

Caregiver in Taiwan, charged with negligent homicide in the death of a elderly Taiwanese


A migrant caregiver (Indonesian) in Miaoli County, Taiwan has been charged with negligent homicide over the death of a Taiwanese elderly woman last week according to local police department.


The elderly woman who suffered a stroke went to the toilet in the middle of the night and fell to the side of the bed. The foreign nurse did not actively support her.


The old woman struggling on the ground hit her head against the edge of the bed and died of intracranial hemorrhage.  


The family members reviewed the surveillance images and accused the foreign workers for not taking good care of them; the prosecutors checked each other and sent the case for death due to negligence.  


The caregiver insisted that "Grandma didn't fall and Grandma didn't hit her head." He did not do her responsibility immediately. The family members were not notified in time after the incident, and the rescue time was missed, causing the death of the elderly. (Photo: CNA)
