What a Mesh

Marikina City will soon enjoy the fruits of a wireless mesh network.

And why not? Marikina has always been reputed to initiate things ahead of the rest. Trailblazing governance. That is Mayor Marides Fernando's style. And for good. Wasn't it long ago that Marikina was known to be Little Singapore? And now especially at the Municipio most employees try to speak English as an initial step towards mimicking the bright side of Singapore.

More than a year ago I read this article about a company called Tropos which seemed to have pioneered in providing the technology to local governments in the U.S.

And I immediately recognized that this would be something our Mayor will eagerly do.

And so here it is now!!!

Living with City Density

It is a must that we curb our population growth
Guesstimates peg that  Metro Manila's population has grown to almost 15million  today. In 1974 while doing my OJT at POPCOM, national rowth rate was 33% and Metro Manila's population at that time was 4 million.  Today it has bloated to almost 15 million after rate was said to have been  'reduced' to 32.1%. Not much improvement really.
Metro Manila population has grown alarmingly fast.  We all know what this means. Living and  health  conditions deteriorate.  Poverty becomes the order of the day. If there are more than 15,000 individuals on a mere square kilometer, you can imagine  pollution, over crowding, resources dwindling and then disease not to mention managing flood disasters in the magnitude of Ondoy and Pepeng. Poor social and economic conditions prevail if not worsen.
The Reproductive Health Bill has been approved.
