Manny Pacquiao - Boxing Hero

Last Sunday, October 7, was the day our home grown boxing champion, Manny Pacquiao defeated Marco Antonio Barrera of Mexico.

Early in the day (that's Saturday night in Las Vegas) we were tuned in to the radio hoping to catch a live telecast of the event. Television coverage is usually way soooo delayed, you see. (Except for those watching expensive PPV offerings from large cinema houses)

My son fortunately found this web video streaming coverage live through CCTV5 which I think is a chinese cable channel. Although, the transmission left much to be desired, it was better than none at all or the radio.

To think that it was FREE made it all better. I love the Internet!

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.
