$26.3-Trillion Oil Reserves
General Says Country’s Untapped Deposits Mostly In Spratlys

MANILA, Philippines- The Philippines is “sitting on a mountain of gold,” with untapped hydrocarbon deposits estimated at $26.3 trillion, mostly found in the disputed Spratly chain of islands, more than enough to free the country from the shackles of poverty.

Brig. Gen. Eldon G. Nemenzo, deputy commander of the 3rd Air Division of the Philippine Air Force (PAF) based in Zamboanga City, made the discovery after researching on the amount of oil reserves of the country for his thesis when he took an advanced course at the Command and Staff College of the PAF in Villamor Air Base, Pasay City.

Interviewed by this writer last Saturday, Nemenzo confirmed the vast oil reserves of the Philippines in various parts of the archipelago, specifically the Reed Bank, the largest of them all, and the Mischief Reef in the Spratly Islands called b…

The 10 Commandments of the Cybercrime Law of the Philippines.

The 10 Commandments of the Cybercrime Law of the Philippines.

1. You shall only say nice things on the Internet--This is the main fault attributed to the law: It's a violation of the Freedom of Expression with its cyberlibel provision. Thanks to this provision inserted "without knowledge" by most of the lawmakers, if you say something bad against certain people on the Internet, you can be charged in court. What's more, according to Bayan Muna Representative Teddy Casiño, this not only applies to statements you make on the Internet but also on smartphones or with any device you use to access the Internet. So yes, this covers texting.

2. You cannot tell the Truth, whether joking or seriously, if it hurts someone--In relation to the 1st Commandment, regardless if you state a fact or you use satire or sarcasm or even say something in a joking tone on the 'net, you can still be held liable for cyberlibel for impugning against another person's supposed dignity as per…

Drake feat. Kanye West, Lil Wayne and Eminem - Forever

It may not mean nothing to y’all,
understand nothing was done for me,
so I don’t plan on stopping at all,
I want this shit forever mine, ever mine, ever mine,
I’m shutting shit down at the mall,
and telling every girl she the one for me,
and I ain’t even planning to call,
I want this shit forever mine, ever mine, ever mine,

Last name ever,
first name greatest,
like a sprained ankle boy ain’t nothing to play with,
it started off local but thanks to all the haters,
I know G4 pilots on a first name basis,
and your city faded off to brown, Nino,
she insists she got more class, we know!
swimming in the money come and find me, Nemo,
if I was at the club you know I ball, Kimo,
drop the mix-tape that sh-t sounded like an album
who’d have thought a country wide tour would be the outcome
labels want my name beside the X like Malcolm
everybody got a deal, I did it without one,
yeah nigga I’m about my business,
killing all these rappers you would swear I had a hit list,
everybody who doubted me is…



Schadenfreude (\ˈshä-dən-ˌfrȯi-də\)is pleasure derived from the misfortunes of others. This German word is used as a loanword in English and some other languages, and has been calqued in Danish and Norwegian as skadefryd and in Swedish as skadeglädje and Finnish as vahingonilo.

Spelling and etymology.

Taming the donkey by Eduardo Zamacois y Zabala, 1868
Conventionally, Schadenfreude is capitalized, as are all nouns in written German. When used as a loanword in English, however, it is not capitalized, unless the origin of the word is meant to be emphasized. The corresponding German adjective is schadenfroh. The word derives from Schaden (damage, harm) and Freude (joy). Schaden derives from the Middle High German schade, from the Old High German scado, and is a cognate with English "scathe". Freude comes from the Middle High German freude, from the Old High German frewida, and is a cognate with the (usually archaic) English word "frith". A distinction exist…

Release The Kraken! Trollolol!

The most sensational play of Petron Blaze top rookie pick June Mar Fajardo’s young PBA career so far happened on Sunday night, when he went skying high for a follow-up dunk against San Mig Coffee’s tough frontline of Rafi Reavis and Yancy De Ocampo. PBA’s resident shutterbug Nuki Sabio captured the moment. Lol. 


Eraserheads - Spoliarium

Eraserheads – Spoliarium
Dumilim ang paligid
May tumawag sa pangalan ko
Labing isang palapag
Tinanong kung okey lang ako
Sabay abot ng baso
May naghihintay
At bakit ba'pag nagsawa na ako
Bigla na lang ayoko na

At ngayon di pa rin alam
Kung bat' tayo nandito
Puwede bang itigil muna
Ang pag-ikot ng mundo

Lumiwanag ang buwan
San juan di ko na nasasakyan
Ang lahat ng bagay ay
Gumuguhit na lang sa 'king lalamunan

Ewan mo at ewan natin
Sinong may pakana?
At bakit ba tumilapon ang
Gintong alak diyan sa paligid mo?

At ngayon di pa rin alam
Kung ba't tayo nandito
Puwede bang itigil muna
Ang pag-ikot ng mundo

Umiyak ang umaga
Anong sinulat ni Enteng at Joey diyan
Sa gintong salamin di ko na mabasa
Pagkat merong nagbura

Ewan mo at ewan natin
Sinong nagpakana?
At bakit ba tumilapon ang spolarium
Diyan sa paligid mo?

At ngayon di pa rin alam
Kung ba't tayo nandito
Puwede bang itigil muna
Ang pag-ikot ng mundo

Karmin - Crash Your Party Lyrics.

"Crash Your Party" [Hook:]
Who do you think you are, a super s-t-a-r?
Who do you think you are, you can kiss my oh my god!

[Verse 1:]
All eyes on you tonight
So let's toast to you, you got so much to prove
And you say, everyone's got a price
That's how you get your way if not there's hell to pay

You're gonna huff and puff and blow the whole house down
Don't they know you're the king of the castle
The nerve of some people
To think we're all equal
911 it's me to the rescue
If I don't speak who's gonna tell you
Oh yea I gotta let you know

I'm here to crash your party
You think you're the star of the show
But I'm about to let you know
I'm here to crash your party
The bigger you are the harder you fall, oh you had it all
Before I crashed your party


[Verse 2:]
You're so misunderstood
Cause you're so complex, you and your complex
And you claim you're so low key
Well you coulda fooled me, mister TMZ!

Martial Law in the Philippines, Revisited. 40th year Anniversary Special.

President Ferdinand Marcos declare martial law from 1972 to 1981 to suppress increasing civil strife and the threat of communist takeover following a series of bombings in Manila.

On August 21, 1971, while the opposition (Liberal Party) was having their meeting de avance two fragmentation grenades exploded. It took 9 lives and left more than 100 people seriously wounded. Some Liberal Party candidates were seriously injured including Jovito Salonga, who nearly died and was visually impaired. Marcos singled out communist forces and subversive elements as the causes of the crisis.

A month of “terrorist bombing” of public facilities in Manila and Quezon City culminated on September 22 with a mock assassination attempt on Defense Secretary Juan Ponce Enrile. Claiming chaos and lawlessness was near, Marcos declared martial law, thereby suspending the 1935 constitution, dissolving Congress, and assuming total power. Six hours after the Enrile assassination attempt, Marcos responded with the…

Smart Gilas Team Pilipinas bows down to Iran, 77-60.

TOKYO – Smart Gilas Pilipinas went scoreless in a crucial stretch in the second half and failed to recover, botching a shot at the FIBA Asia Cup finals with a 60-77 loss to Iran at the Ota Gymnasium here today.

The Nationals were down by only three at 47-50 before going on a dry spell for over four minutes, allowing the Iranians to build momentum for the 17-point victory and a crack at the coveted crown.

Host Japan and Qatar were playing for the other final berth as of posting time.

Numerous lapses dogged the Filipinos early on, preventing them from sustaining the heat of their 17-11 start.

A fourth foul drawn by Marcus Douthit with 8:06 left followed by the fifth and final of backup center Sonny Thoss moments later doomed Gilas.

The Nationals, however, still have a chance to improve on their fourth-place finish in Beirut in 2010, going for third place against the loser of the Japan-Qatar match at 2 p.m. on Saturday.

The Iranians threw the Filipinos off balance, holding Douthit down …

And then a bunch of guys jumped up the front step and into the corridor; they had their arms around each others’ shoulders and appeared to be completely blootered, although the reception had only been going an…
