VP aspirant, maglalagay ng CR sa barangay; gagawing pabango ang ihi

Isang Vice Presidential aspirant ang naghain ng kanyang Certificate of candidacy at isinabi ang kaniyang plataporma kabilang na dito ang paglalagay ng banyo sa bawat barangay. at sinabi din na ang mga ihi ay kokolektahin para gawing pabango.

Si Alexander Lague, na tatakbong bise presidente sa ilalim ng Philippine Green Republican Party, katambal ang presidential aspirant na si Laurencio Yulaga.

Si Yulaga naman ay mayroon raw itong kompanya na langis at pinagkalooban ng isang russian ng 740 billion euro para pagandahin ang kaniyang teknolohiya. 

“Paano? Simple lamang po if I’m not mistaken po mahigit 44,000 ang barangay sa buong Pilipinas. Bawat barangay tatayuan ko ng banyo at [comfort room]  lalo na po ‘yung mga leading streets katulad ng Caloocan, EDSA to Heritage Hotel, Pasay City,” sinabi ni Lague.

Ang maiipon na ihi ng lalaki, gagawin niyang pabango habang liquid fertilizer naman ang gagawin sa ihi ng mga babae. “Kasi ang ihi ng lalaki gagawin nating perfume sa teknolohiya ng aming presidential candidate na number one, top scientist sa buong mundo,” dagdag niya.

Hindi niya gagamitin ang pondo ng Office of the Vice President para sa naturang proyekto sinabi ni Lague. Sa halip, uutang siya sa kompanya ni Yulaga upang maipatupad ang proyekto.

Tutugunan din umano ni Yulaga ang problema sa polusyon, at hindi na kakailanganin ang landfill para sa mga basura at hospital wastes. Ayon kay Yulaga, isa siyang scientist na nagtapos sa mula sa Harvard.

Taiwan evaluating to open border for migrants inoculated with WHO approved vaccines

Taiwan is considering to open its borders to several migrant workers with a evaluation that they must be inoculated with World Health Organization (WHO) approved vaccines, Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) announced.

Deputy chief of the CECC Chen Tsung-yen said that "research and discussions" are underway for considering "conditionally opening" Taiwan's border to migrant workers, Taiwan News reported.

Chen added that inter-ministerial meetings from different agencies have carried out some assessments.

Chen answered an interview question if migrant workers must be inoculted with WHO registered vaccine that "this will be evaluated comprehensively."

"We will open up in due course," said when several measures and plans are ironed out and completed.

Taiwan's migrant worker population are now at 699,154 down since entry ban of workers, data from Ministry of Labor (MOL) statistics. (Photo CNA)

Taiwan placed 4th in the world in total hours worked, Singapore ranked 1st

Workers in Taiwan accumulated more working hours than other countries according to the international labor statistics published by the Ministry of Labor (MOL).

Taiwan toiled a total of 2,021 average hours worked in 2020 which is notable decrease in average hours worked within the workforce in all surveyed countries compared to last year.

Singapore placed first with 2,288 hours logged by its workers in 2020 among among 40 economies surveyed, followed by Columbia (2,172 hours) and Mexico (2,124 hours).

In Asia, apart from Singapore and Taiwan, South Korea and Japan were next with an average of 1,908 hours and 1,598 hours clocked repectively.

The fall was mainly caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and the effects of subsequent measures, such as lockdowns according to Huang Wei-chen, head of the MOL's Department of Labor Standards and Equal Employment.

Due to the effects of the global pandemic, it is likely that more people have been forced to take on part-time jobs, Huang added. (Photo Reuters)

Taiwan considering to reopen border when 7-million or 30% people are fully vaccinated

Taiwan's Deputy Minister of Health and Welfare Shih Chung-liang said that border control measures will remain unchanged until at least 30 percent of the population have been fully vaccinated.

Entry restrictions would not be relaxed not until at least 30 percent of the population in Taiwan or about 7.02 million people have been fully vaccinated and received two doses of a COVID-19 vaccine.

According to Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) data, about 5.7 million people had been fully vaccinated, around 24.3 percent of the population.

Taiwan uses four types of vaccines that require two doses that are available in Taiwan, including AstraZeneca, Moderna, Medigen and Pfizer BioNTech.

CECc said that it need to weigh up the global pandemic situation and the country's COVID-19 vaccine coverage before making any changes to the current border policy. (Photo CNA)


MECO advised OFWs in Taiwan regarding on how to redeem tax refunds

The defacto embassy of Philippines in Taiwan, Manila Economic and Cultural Office (MECO) brief the overseas Filipino workers (OFW) there on how to avail income tax refunds.

“Both local residents and migrant workers have the responsibility of filing individual income tax returns based on their respective taxable income. Part of the compensation we earn — such as salaries, stipends, allowances — are taxable income,” said Overseas Welfare Administration (OWWA) case officer Mira Martha Huang.

Remember that the computation of taxable income in Taiwan is based on a full year or from 1 January to 31 December.

“If you filed late, or after 31 May, you will have to pay a penalty. However, no penalty would be imposed if you are qualified for a tax refund even if you filed (the ITR) late,” Huang explained.

“If you have any question, you can seek the assistance of the (Taiwan) tax bureau. You can call us at MECO Labor (07 3987078), or OWWA (07 3982475), and even get help from various NGOs helping OFW,” Huang added.

OFWs in Taiwan may file their income tax return online ( or may go personally at the nearest tax bureau in their area.

Tax refunds in Taiwan can be claimed within five years but a tax refund cheque is only valid for one year.

Ayuda daw ito: Itinangi ni Pacquiao na vote buying ang pamimigay ng pera sa Batangas

Aminado si presidential candidate at Senator Manny Pacquiao na namigay ito ng pera sa ginanap na pagtitipon sa Batangas ngunit itinangi niya na ito ay isang vote buying scheme kung hindi ayuda daw ito.

Nagpunta si Pacquiao sa Balayan, Batangas at namahagi ng relief packs sa may 7,000 biktima ng Taal Volcano eruption.

“Yes, totoo po ‘yan namigay tayo ng tulong, grocery, bigas, at pera na tag-iisang libo,” ani Pacquiao.

“Hindi ito vote-buying kasi ‘yung pamimigay ng pera at bigas, 2002 ko pa ginagawa ‘yan. Mula noon hanggang ngayon, may eleksyon man o walang eleksyon, habit ko na mamigay ‘pag nakita ko may nangangailangan, nagugutom,” sabi ni Pacquiao.

Ayon pa sa senador, hindi pondo mula sa gobyerno ang perang ipinamahagi niya.

“Ito parang pilosopo. Ano gusto niyo mamigay ako ng pera o magnakaw ako?” banat Pacquiao.

Kamasa si Pacquiao sa mga top candidates sa pagkapangulo sa darating na Eleksyon 2022 na gaganapin sa Mayo 9.

OFW quits abusive employer, robbed by fellow OFW in a quarantine facility in Manila

An overseas Filipino worker who was allegedly abused by her employer in Kuwait has returned to Philippines.  But the help given to him by his compatriots at the airport, was stolen from the quarantine facility in Manila by a fellow OFW.

Maribel Cantillo, who is from Aurora Province cannot control her emotions on what happen.

Cantillo was in Dubai for a stop over when her fellow Filipinos saw her crying. Fellow OFWs contributed to give him a little help but he lost consciousness due to hunger.

In the two years that she will work as a domestic helper, she was not given a day off.  He also said that his employer did not follow the agreed salary.

Aside from the abuse, she was also not given the full two months of his salary that he would have brought home amounting to P43,000. Instead, she was given only 50 Dinars or about P8,000.

When sge returned to the Philippines, she was the victim of her compatriot at the quarantine facility in Manila.  He allegedly took the money given to him by his compatriots who helped her in Dubai.

Despite on what happened, Cantillo is thankful that he was able to return home safely, and he is also thankful to his fellow OFWs who helped him.



Taiwan to give priority to fully vaccinated migrant workers when entry ban lifted: MOL

Taiwan's Ministry of Labor (MOL) announced that fully vaccinated against COVID-19 migrant workers will be prioritized when ban is lifted.

Taiwan is now considering to lift its entry ban on migrant workers to ease labor shortage as transfer migrany workers are not enough.

"Related agencies have been discussing supporting measures once the ban is lifted, and fully vaccinated migrant workers will be given priority," said Labor Minister Hsu Ming-chun.

MOL states that incoming migrant workers will be required to present a certificate of vaccination and a negative PCR test result taken within three days before their departure.

Upon entering Taiwan, they will be required to undergo a mandatory 14-day quarantine and follow a week-long self-health management protocol.

The number of migrant workers in Taiwan first exceeded 700,000 in September 2018, and reached more than 719,000 by February 2020 but fell to 699,154 in August 2021 according to Ministry of Labor statistics.

Business groups in Taiwan worried about the minimum wage hike, could hurt several companies

Business groups have panned the minimum wage hike for 2022 proposed by a Ministry of Labor (MOL) committee, worried that it will hurt service sector companies hit hard by COVID-19.

The Minimum Wage Review Committee proposed that the minimum monthly wage be increased by 5.21 percent to NT$25,250 from NT$24,000 at present and that the minimum hourly wage go up by 5 percent to NT$168 from NT$160 at present, to take effect on Jan. 1, 2022.

Business groups felt the increase overshot the mark. Ho Yu, director of the Chinese National Federation of Industries, opposed the hike, especially given that the future course of the pandemic remains uncertain.

The 5 percent rise may have been linked to expectations of 6 percent GDP growth in Taiwan this year, but he said the projection overstates actual growth because it includes extra funding for COVID-19 relief measures, private sector vaccine purchases, and arms purchases.

Hsu Shu-po, chairperson of the General Chamber of Commerce, said the minimum wage increase will take a toll on the service sector, which has been losing money due to the pandemic and related restrictions.

Lin Por-fong, chairperson of the Chinese National Association of Industry and Commerce, said the wage hike's timing was poor.

The government is carrying out relief programs covering some 300,000 enterprises, and the number of workers on unpaid leave has remained stubbornly high, he said, and the increase will only make it harder for enterprises to operate.

But if the minimum wage is to be raised by 5 percent, then companies' contribution to employees' labor insurance premiums should be cut from 70 percent to 60 percent, he argued.

Isko Moreno tinawag na "fake leader with fake color" si Leni Robredo

Manila Mayor and presidential aspirant Isko Moreno Domagoso, tinawag si Vice President Leni Robredo na "fake leader" matapos magfile bilang independent candidate.

Si Robredo ang kasalukuyang chairperson ng Liberal Party (LP) at nais nitong makipagtulungan sa ibang partido at sektor. 

"Wag kayong malilinlang sa pagpapalitan ng kulay... Ang tanso, tubugin man ng ginto ay tanso pa rin," ayon kay Domagoso sa mga bagong miyembro ng Aksyon Demokratiko.

"A fake leader with a fake color is a fake character," dagdag niya.

LP's yellow trademark ay pinalitan na ang campaign color sa pink at ito na daw ang bagong kulay ng rebolusyon.

Sinabi ng Aksyon Demokratiko na si Isko ang magiging "healing president" at magfofocus sa mga Filipinos at hindi sa "3-decade fights among political families."

"Ang away ng mga pamilyang yan walang dinulot na buti sa ating bayan. Sila ay tumatakbo para maghigantinsa isa’t isa. Sila ay tumatakbo dahil sa kulay ng kanilang pulitika," sabi ni Domagoso.

Taiwan minimum wage increased to NT$25,250

Taiwan's minimum monthly wage will be raised to NT$25,250 and the minimum hourly wage to NT$168. The changes will go into effect on Jan. 1, 2022.

This consideration is to address the country's  labor shortage problem, that businesses in Taiwan rely on transfer applicants but still not enough.

Inter-ministerial discussions are underway in the hope of lifting the entry ban, Minister of Labor Hsu Ming-chun said.

Currently, there are over 5,000 Taiwan-bound Overseas Filipino Workers (OFW) stranded.

All affected Filipino migrant workers to Taiwan were advised to coordinate with their respective agencies through the Labor Department and the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration for immediate assistance. 

The proposed measures include providing proof of a negative COVID-19 polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test and 14 days of home quarantine followed by a seven-day period of self-health monitoring.

Some OFWs in Taiwan have fallen victim to the modus of scammers by selling cheap smartphones or cellphones online where these scammers post in social media sites or fake websites.

“Bale naghahanap po talaga ako ng mabibilhan ng cellphone gawa ng ipapadala ko ang luma kong cellphone sana. So nakakita ako online, nagchat ako, nagre-reply agad sila sa akin,” according to Rosemarie from a report by Marie Yang of TFC.

Rosemarie is only one of several OFWs in Taiwan scammed by the cheap online selling of smartphones / cellphones.

Aside from the victims' money being stolen from the online selling scam, their identification was even used in another modus.

Manila Economic & Cultural Office (MECO) said that they have a lead on where are the scammers with the help of Taiwan police.

Moderna chief executive says pandemic could be over in a year as vaccine supply increases

The coronavirus pandemic could be over in a year as increased vaccine production ensures global supplies, Moderna Inc Chief Executive St├ęphane Bancel thinks.

"If you look at the industry-wide expansion of production capacities over the past six months, enough doses should be available by the middle of next year so that everyone on this earth can be vaccinated. Boosters should also be possible to the extent required," he said to the Swiss newspaper Neue Zuercher Zeitung.

He alao said that vaccinations would soon be available even for infants.

"Those who do not get vaccinated will immunize themselves naturally, because the Delta variant is so contagious. In this way we will end up in a situation similar to that of the flu. You can either get vaccinated and have a good winter. Or you don't do it and risk getting sick and possibly even ending up in hospital."

Asked if that meant a return to normal in the second half of next year, he said: "As of today, in a year, I assume."

"The volume of vaccine is the biggest limiting factor. With half the dose, we would have 3 billion doses available worldwide for the coming year instead of just 2 billion," he said.

Natural immunity is at least as protective as immunity produced by vaccination, and that a single vaccine dose can further bolster natural immunity.

Sara-Go na yan: President Duterte accidentally declares Sara Duterte - Bong Go tandem

President Duterte accidentally declared in a ambush interview that Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte, will pair with Senator Christopher “Bong” Go for the coming election in 2022.

“Sara-Go na 'yan,” Duterte said in a video uploaded on the Facebook.

Duterte’s latest statement came even if the Davao mayor has repeatedly rejected the presidency and filed her COC for a third and last term

“Ah, actually, hindi kami nag-uusap ng politika  ever since. Ever since, we never talked about politics. I would say that I did that [withdrawal of my vice-presidential bid] for the better,” Duterte said.

Duterte made the pronouncement to drop VP candidacy when he accompanied Senator Christopher Lawrence “Bong” Go, his former longtime aide, who filed his certificate of candidacy (COC) for vice president.

Duterte’s move prompted Go to “take on the challenge as PDP-Laban’s vice-presidential candidate.” The President wished Go “all the best and good luck in his quest for the vice presidency.”

Pinay domestic helper, kulong matapos lagyan ng laway at toilet water ang inumin ng employer

Isang Pinay domestic worker ang hindi na nasisiyahan sa pamilya ng kanyang amo, nilagyan ng toilet water mula sa bowl ang drinking water ng kanyang employer, nilagyan din ito ng liquid na panlinis ng furniture.

Gozar Rose Magtanong, domestic helper sa Singapore, ginagamit din daw ang mga mamahaling facial creams ng asawa ng employer sa halos 28 times.

Kulong ang Pinay matapos itong binigyan ng guilty plea ng one count of dishonestly misappropriating the creams at one count of committing mischief.

Inamin naman ni Gozar na nilagyan niya ng laway ang water jug na ginagamit ng kanyang employer, kasama ang inumin ng isang bata.

Ayon naman sa lawyer ng Pinay, tinawag siyang "stupid" ng kanyang employer kapag may nagagawa itong mali, confiscated din ang phone niya at hindi naibibigay on time ang kanyang sweldo kaya nagawa niya ang mga bagay na iyon.

Naninirahan ang pamilya sa isang condominium at halos isang taon na nagtrabaho sa kanila ang Pinay worker.

"As a foreign domestic worker, your behaviour in contaminating the drinking water of the family is certainly something that cannot be condoned, certainly to be deterred. If you have any grievances…(there are) legitimate channels for you to do so it’s not right to do the way you have done," ayon kay District Judge Ng Peng Hong.

Taiwan to relax face mask rules in a well-ventilated outdoor open spaces

Taiwan to relax the mandatory wearing of face masks because of the low number of domestic cases after hitting several 0 cases according to Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC).

CECC is thinking about easing rules requiring people to wear a face mask when outside their residence, mainly for outdoor spaces where there are few people.

Several government agencies have relayed to the CECC complaints from people about having to wear face masks when there is only one or a handful of people around, such as a farmer working in a field or a family on a hiking trip, Chen said.

The relaxing of the rules would allow members of the public to remove their masks if they are in "well-ventilated outdoor open spaces" that have few people, but did not directly respond to a question about relaxing mask rules indoors.

Taiwan's Level 2 COVID-19 alert will be extended as announced by CECC head and Health Minister Chen Shih-chung.

Meanwhile, visitors at night markets would still have to wear masks and would not be allowed to eat while strolling around.


Pacquiao, naniniwala na kayang bigyan ng pabahay ang mahihirap sa loob ng 3 years

Senator Manny Pacquiao sinabi kayang kayang bigyan ng pabahay ang mga informal settlers at mga pamilya na rumerenta ng bahay sa bansa sa loob lamang ng tatlong taon. 

Hahabol sa pagka presidente sa Pacquiao sa darating na halalan 2022. Nagretiro na rin ang atleta sa kanyang boxing career para sa politics.

"Noong sinabi ko pangarap ko na mabigyan ng pabahay ang lahat ng informal settlers sa buong Pilipinas, ang sabi ng mga ibang tao, imposible yan kasi sa puso nila nandun yung greediness. Pero sa hindi greedy na tao, sa generous na puso ng tao, all things are possible,” ani Pacquiao.

Ayon kay Pacquiao ay kayang kaya ng gobyerno na bigyan ng pabahay ang mahihirap at sobra sobra pa nga daw ito kung tutuusin.

“Kayang kaya, sobra sobra pa.. in-estimate ko nga e in three to four years, mabigyan ko lahat [ng bahay] pero sinabi ko lang in years para hindi ako maging sinungaling,” sabi ni Pacquiao.

Noon pa man ay may mga proyekto na si Pacquiao na pabahay sa General Santos at Sarangani province at ang ginagamit niyang pondo ay galing sa sarili niyang bulsa.
