RIP - Maria Corazon "Cory" Cojuangco Aquino (January 25, 1933 August 1, 2009)

Maria Corazon "Cory" Cojuangco Aquino (January 25, 1933 August 1, 2009)

Maria Corazon "Cory" Cojuangco Aquino (January 25, 1933 August 1, 2009) was a President of the Philippines and a world-renowned advocate of democracy, peace, women's empowerment, and religious piety. She served as the 11th president of the Philippines from 1986 to 1992. She was the first female president of the Philippines and was Asia's first female president. Aquino died on August 1, 2009 after suffering from colon cancer.

A self-proclaimed "plain housewife",[3] Aquino was married to Senator Benigno Aquino, Jr. (19321983), a leading figure in the political opposition against the autocratic rule of President Ferdinand Marcos. After her husband was assassinated upon his return from exile in the United States on August 21, 1983, Aquino, who had no prior political experience, became a focal point and unifying force of the opposition against Marcos. She was drafted to run against Marcos in the 1986 snap presidential elections. After Marcos was proclaimed the winner despite widespread reports of electoral fraud, Aquino was installed as President by the peaceful 1986 People Power Revolution.

Domo Arigato, Mr. Roboto - The real Dancing Robot

Domo Arigato, Mr. Roboto - The real Dancing Robot

I just wanted to send this video out one more time before YouTube blocks the audio.

The audio dose include a few short samples taken from the Mr. Roboto performance by Stix that is posted here on YouTube. Although the version I have posted is a remix I created it seems more important to block my video and not the many 100% copyright infringements made by posting the original with the whole song or even other unlicensed videos with audio containing the entire composition. Some of which have been posted for more than 2 years.
Well please enjoy it if it still works by the time you get this post. Once they block the audio I will leave the video up with a swapped audio track.

If you have any comments about sampled music or this video please post comments.

Friendster Now Available in Tagalog

FRIENDSTER NOW AVAILABLE IN TAGALOG

Over 90 Million Tagalog Speaking Filipinos Globally Can Now Use Friendster
To Keep in Touch with Friends and Family

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA – January 27, 2009 – Friendster, Inc., a top 20 global website based on traffic* and the #1 social network in Asia, today announced that Friendster.com is available in Tagalog, the most popular language in the Philippines that is used by over 90 million people worldwide. Friendster’s mobile site m.friendster.com will also launch in Tagalog in the coming days. This new language addition on Friendster gives the 14 million Internet users in the Philippines and users around the world a greater choice of languages with which to navigate the site, share content and use Friendster’s complete set of social networking features.

Friendster.com now fully supports 11 languages – English, Bahasa Indonesian, Chinese (both Simplified and Traditional), Japanese, Korean, Malay, Spanish, Tagalog, Thai and Vietnamese. These languages represent over 70 percent of the world’s Internet users, or approximately a billion Internet users in total. Friendster’s mobile site m.friendster.com supports 7 languages – English, Bahasa Indonesian, Chinese (both Simplified and Traditional), Malay, Korean and Tagalog.

“Over 90 percent of all Internet users in the Philippines are currently using Friendster, which is an order of magnitude larger than any other social network in the country. Launching support for Tagalog on the Friendster web and mobile sites will help us maintain our leadership position in the Philippines and within Filipino communities around the world,” said David Jones, vice president of global marketing at Friendster.

79 million people in the Philippines – 85 percent of the total population of 93 million – are not yet using the Internet.

“Friendster in Tagalog gives even more Filipinos a reason to get started online and join their friends and family on Friendster. And, for those Filipinos who don’t have regular access to a computer, they can join and enjoy Friendster via their mobile phone by visiting the m.friendster.com mobile site. We look forward to welcoming millions of Tagalog speakers to the Internet and to Friendster,” said Jones.

Users can set their language of choice on Friendster several ways through links at the top right of every page of the Friendster.com website, the “Settings” link at the website or mobile site, or the Languages link at the bottom of the homepage of the mobile site at m.friendster.com.

Friendster also announced today the ability for advertisers to target ads on Friendster based on the language preference of the Friendster user. With this new enhancement, advertisers can choose to target ads on Friendster via geographic location, age, gender and/or language preference. In the Philippines, for example, this will be particularly useful for advertisers to target ads in the Tagalog language to users who have chosen to use Friendster in Tagalog and ads in English to users who prefer to use Friendster in English.

Tagalog is spoken by more than 64 million Filipinos, or about 70 percent of the total population in the Philippines. Tagalog is spoken throughout the world outside of the Philippines and is most popular within Filipino ethnic groups. There are approximately 90 million Tagalog speakers globally, and it is the fifth most spoken language in the United States.**

Real Estate grew by 14.9 percent, its second double-digit growth since the first quarter of 2007, followed by Finance at 13.9 percent. All other sectors posted positive growths.

With the expanded growth of compensation and the continued decline in employment, total compensation per employee registered its first double-digit growth of 10.3 percent, an acceleration from the 6.0 percent it registered in the previous year. Robust growths were recorded for Mining and Quarrying (25.5 percent) and Real Estate (13.4 percent), while the rest posted positive growths.

Violating the rules of war:

Violating the rules of war:

A blatant disregard for international humanitarian law and the Geneva Convention.

Article 35.-Basic rules
paragraph 3. states It is prohibited to employ methods or means of warfare which are intended, or may be expected, to cause widespread, long-term and severe damage to the natural environment. In the case of threatening to retaliate in kind to weapons of mass destruction, this would seem to limit the use of atomic weapons to neutron bombs.

Collective punishments
Article 33. No protected person may be punished for an offense he or she has not personally committed. Collective penalties and likewise all measures of intimidation or of terrorism are prohibited.

Protocol III: Incendiary Weapons
Protocol III on Prohibitions or Restrictions on the Use of Incendiary Weapons prohibits, in all circumstances, making the civilian population as such, individual civilians or civilian objects, the object of attack by any weapon or munition which is primarily designed to set fire to objects or to cause burn injury to persons through the action of flame, heat or a combination thereof, produced by a chemical reaction of a substance delivered on the target.

Article 2
Protection of civilians and civilian objects

1. It is prohibited in all circumstances to make the civilian population as such, individual civilians or civilian objects the object of attack by incendiary weapons.
2. It is prohibited in all circumstances to make any military objective located within a concentration of civilians the object of attack by air-delivered incendiary weapons.
3. It is further prohibited to make any military objective located within a concentration of civilians the object of attack by means of incendiary weapons other than air-delivered incendiary weapons, except when such military objective is clearly separated from the concentration of civilians and all feasible precautions are taken with a view to limiting the incendiary effects to the military objective and to avoiding, and in any event to minimizing, incidental loss of civilian life, injury to civilians and damage to civilian objects.
4. It is prohibited to make forests or other kinds of plant cover the object of attack by incendiary weapons except when such natural elements are used to cover, conceal or camouflage combatants or other military objectives, or are themselves military objectives.

Geneva Protocol
1925 Geneva Protocol Prohibited the use of "asphyxiating gas, or any other kind of gas, liquids, substances or similar materials"

Valley Golf Brawl Highlights Out-of-control Filipino Politicians

Friday, December 26, 2008

The world has gone crazy.

So, I just had the worst day of my life.

At around 1:30 PM today, at Valley Golf and Country Club, Antipolo City, Mayor Nasser Pangandaman, Jr., Mayor of Masiu City, Lanao del Sur, his father, Secretary Nasser Pangandaman of the Department of Agrarian Reform, and company, beat my defenseless 56-year-old dad and my 14-year-old brother to a pulp because of some stupid misunderstanding on the golf course.

This is a golf course. I have been a golfer all my life, and I have never seen anything like this. NOTHING. This is hard to comprehend. And it happened to my own father and my own brother too. Right in front of my eyes.

My brother and I were playing golf at the South Course of Valley. We were on the 3rd hole, and we see two golf carts going past us, overtaking our flight, and setting up to tee off on the next hole. My dad goes up to them and asks them why they would do that, why they would overtake us without even asking for our permission. Golf etiquette 101. One of the guys says that they're with the flight in front of us. (So what? That doesn't give them the right to just pass us WITHOUT asking.) So, we go to the 5th hole. The flight behind us catches up with us, and asks us what caused the hold up. We said that this flight just slipped in front of our flight. So we complained to the marshall. We play the 5th hole and walk towards the next hole, where there is a teehouse, and both the flights in front of us were there, talking with the marshall. The mayor of Masiu City, Lanao del Sur talks with my dad. Things get heated up. Voices were raised. But never, in my wildest dreams, did I ever imagine that someone would pull out a punch. Apparently not. He attacks my father. His flightmates, maybe 2 or 3 of them, rush to his aid and beat up my father. My 56-year-old father. My younger brother and I could not just watch. We rushed to break the fight. My younger brother pleads to the mayor to please stop it. To not hurt my dad. To just stop. His words still ring through my head..."Sorry na po, sorry na po...tama na...tama na po..." With his hands in front of his chest in a praying position. PLEADING. The mayor socks him in the face. My brother defended himself. My dad is still on the ground getting clobbered. My brother is the same way. I try to stop the fight, but all I can do is stop one person. There were 4 or 5 of them attacking now.

Someone breaks up the fight. I thought it was all over. The mayor shouts to his caddy: "Hindi nila kami kilala! Sabihin mo nga sa kanila kung sino ako!" And believe me, I had no idea who this person was. But now I know. He's the person who, with 4 other men, beat up my 56-year-old father and my 14-year-old brother. He's the person who sacks a pleading 14-year-old kid in the face. He's a person who, I am sure, is gonna rot in hell.

I lash out, but my dad held me back. I was screaming my lungs out, shouting to this mayor, telling him about what he had done. I said: "Nakakahiya kayo. Singkwenta'y sais anyos ang tatay ko. And kapatid ko kakatorse anyos. Anong ilalaban nila sayo?"

The mayor looks at my brother, point to his face, and says, "Tatandaan kita!" And he tells me that my brother has a bad attitude and that I need to watch him. WHAT THE HELL?! So, my brother's bad for defending his father?!

We leave. We walk to the clubhouse to file a complaint. My brother asks for a doctor. My dad could barely walk. Their group comes to the clubhouse, sees my brother. Once again my brother pleads, says sorry, and is crying. He was CRYING, for crissakes. But no. The relentless mayor still punches him in the face, and then sees my dad and goes after my dad again. Him and his friend pull my dad to the ground, pulls at his feet, and steps on him like he's dirt. I run to him and try to hold him back, holding him back by his shirt, while this other guy and this girl tries to stop me. She tells me to just stop it. I scream in her face "they're beating my father up and you want me to stop?!" I pull at his shirt--I don't let go. All I can see was my dad being trampled on. I didn't even see my brother getting beat up.

People pull them away. I get my dad, and I saw my brother. His right ear was bleeding. I freaked out. I told the receptionists to bring my brother to the clinic. I pull my dad away. People were separating us.

My mom and my older brother come. I tell her Bino's right ear is bleeding. They both look like they could kill. My dad holds my brother off, I hold off my mom. When I finally got my mom under control, my older brother gets away and I hold him off. Two of the mayor's bodyguards pull out guns. I embraced my brother from the back, just holding him back, crying. The receptionists came to us, crying, hugging me, my dad, and my mom, whispering to us to just leave. "Maam, umalis na po kayo, may mga baril sila...Maam...umalis na po kayo please..."

I am pretty sure the Secretary of DAR did not take part in the fight, but he just watched all this happen. He watched two of his sons, as we figured out, the other guy was his son, too, beat up my father and my 14-year-old brother. He didn't do anything to stop it. And this person is what now? A cabinet member. A politician.

Sounds like something out of a movie, doesn't it? But this is what happened. TODAY. The day after Christmas. To my family. And all I ask for is JUSTICE. The people at Valley Golf did not seem to want to help us. None of the security guards even tried to stop the fight. Right in the clubhouse. I came back after the fight was over and talked to the receptionists. They say they did not see anything. The general manager of Valley Golf would not give us the names of the men who made my brother's ear bleed. It took him an hour. Maybe even more than that. He seemed to not want to help us. Because, we were against the SECRETARY OF THE DEPARTMENT OF AGRARIAN REFORM and the MAYOR OF MASIU CITY, LANAO DEL SUR. They were all scared.

The world has gone crazy. Two politicians beat up a defenseless 56-year-old father and his 14-year-old son. At a golf course. I swear to God, I thought golfers were decent people. You would think politicians were decent people. I guess not. I guess they gang up on 56-year-old men and beat up pleading 14-year-old kids.

Please pray for my dad, my brother and for my whole family. Please pray that we get JUSTICE. Oh God, please, give these people what they deserve.
