Living with city dwelling problems

 News Overshadowed by Luneta Grandstand Hostage Crisis

The hostage crisis situation dominated the news headlines in the last 8 days. As a result, equally important issues took a back seat:

  • Worsening dengue situation - said to have increased by 75% this year. Calling DOH.
  • Ampatuan Massacre - postponements that seem to delay the early conviction of those who will be found guilty.
  • Human rights violation again,  allegedly committed by Manila policemen
  • Hide and Ply strategy of colorum buses with  EDSA routes  
  • Continuous media campaign to support the government's plans to address possible flood crisis situation during the remaining typhoon season.
  • Mismanagement of gov't funds by GOCC's.. after current Senate investigation,  what 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.
