QOTD: Captain America Civil War


Doesn’t matter what the press says.
Doesn’t matter what the politicians or the mobs say.
Doesn’t matter if the whole country decides that something wrong is something right.

This nation was founded on one principle above all else
the requirement that we stand up for what we believe, no matter the odds or consequences

When the mob and the press and the whole world tell you to move.

Your job is to plant yourself like a tree beside the river of truth and tell the world,

No.
You move.

Mar Roxas | Closing statement of Mar Roxas at Pilipinas Debates 2016, April 24, 2016

Pangwakas na PahayagniMar RoxasSa Pampanguluhang Debate 2016[ika-24 ng Abril 2016]Maraming salamat sa inyong lahat at lalong-lalo na sa lahat ng mga sumalubong sa amin ni Leni sa aming pag-iikot sa ating bansa—mga nagpakita ng suporta, kumamay, kumupkop, yumakap sa amin. Nakakataba ng puso. At sa init ng inyong pagsalubong sa amin, nasasariwa ang mga dahilan kung bakit  ipinaglalaban natin ang ating bayan. Maraming salamat muli, espesyal doon sa ating shout out sa mga taga-Luneta na nanonood ngayon. [Palakpakan]Patapos na ang kampanya. Panghuling debate na ito. The campaign is winding down. It has been vicious and divisive. Maraming mga nasaktan, kababaihan, LGBT, person with disabilities, senior citizens, madalas ang mga pinakawalang kalaban-laban. But this is not who we are as a people. We are a generous people. We are warm. We are loving. Mapagbigay tayo. Ang magulang, isusubo na lang, ibibigay pa sa anak. We do with so much less because we want our children to have more and they deserve more. Every Filipino deserves more, and that is what is at the root of our frustration.Ang iba gagamitin ang ating frustration para lokohin tayo, para makalimutan natin na malayo ang narating natin, para makalimutan natin kung sino tayo bilang Pilipino, para makalimutan natin na ang tunay at makabuluhang pagbabago [ay] hindi nakakamit sa paninisi, sa pang-iinsulto o sa pang-soundbite lamang. Nangyayari ito dahil tinatrabaho, and this is what the elections have come down to—the talkers versus the doers. Those that bring out the worst in us versus those that bring out the best in us; [palakpakan] those ‘yung mga susunugin lahat ng pinaghirapan natin, kontra doon sa mga magdidilig at magbabantay sa mga itinanim natin.We must stay the course because malago ang ating ekonomiya. This is what has turned us from the Sick man of Asia to Asia’s Bright Star. [Palakpakan] Marami ang nabigyan ng trabaho. Our unemployment is at is lowest level in 10 years. Ang classrooms, we have built more classrooms and hired more teachers in the last five years than all the previous five administrations combined. May naiahon tayo. Mahigit dalawang milyon ng ating mga kababayan mula sa kahirapan, wala na sila sa kategorya na mahihirap. Lumago ang ating kapaligiran at marami pang iba, but you know what? Pundasyon pa lang ito. The best is yet to come. [Palakpakan]Another six years of honest, decent, hardworking governance at mararating na natin ang ating pinapangarap—isang Pilipinas na maunlad at disente, puno ng pagkakataon, malaya sa takot, at malayang mangarap. Ito ang maunlad at disenteng Pilipinas, may dangal, may takot sa Diyos, maipagmamalaki mo. [Palakpakan] Ito ang Pilipinas na ipinaglalaban natin. Dakila ang ating lahi. Dakila ang ating bansa. This is a fight worth fighting. This is a fight for our country.Nanawagan ako sa lahat sa inyo, rally to our cause! Katukin natin. Kausapin natin. Kumbinsihin natin ang ating mga kamag-anak, ang ating kakilala, mga kaibigan, mga katrabaho. [Palakpakan] Dalhin natin sa kanila ang magandang balita na kinalalagyan na natin ngayon. Huwag kayong matatakot. Let our voice be heard. This is the good fight. This is a fight for decency, for honesty, for our future.Sa ika-siyam ng Mayo, patunayan natin sa buong Pilipinas at sa buong mundo, mas marami pa rin tayong mga disenteng Pilipino. [Palakpakan] Mas marami pa rin tayong mga mabubuting Pilipino. Mas marami pa tayong mga matutuwid na Pilipino. Samahan n’yo po ako, ipanalo na natin ang laban na ito!Maraming salamat po!

Why I am beginning to fear the 2016 Elections.

First the Philippines is FIRST once again. We are involved in the “what could rank as the worst ever government data breach anywhere.” ( InfoSecurity Magazine)

Data Protection Mishap Leaves 55M Philippine Voters at Risk

Why should this increase my DOUBT in the upcoming 2016 Presidential Elections. Well a big part of the reason why RoRo supporters are relatively calm even with a seemingly bottom-dweller rank is that we have a core of committed but silent hopefully majority VOTERS.

This will be a close elections and if they could not verify that their electoral database has not been tampered with then this calls to question the elections.

AS an aside if you gave COMELEC your email address hurry to this site:

and check whether your email address is part of the 200k email addresses that have been compromised.

I really hope I am wrong.

Solar Powered Homes in the Philippines

I am really interested on having solar powered house for my parent’s home.

This is why I’ve been doing a lot of research on the different systems that one can have installed.

There are a few considerations when buying a such a system, here are a few considerations:

  • Is power generally available in your place?
  • Is rotating brownouts the norm in your town?
  • How important is uninterrupted power supply for your house/business?
  • What are your electrical appliances? Can you add up the electricity usage of your electrical appliances?
  • Can you give a good estimate of your peak power usage?
  • How long are the rotating brownouts in your town?

 

Why these questions?

Well If you live in Mindanao or in some remote areas brownouts are the norm. In lots of some places the power lines are generally not insulated and a tree can cause a power interruption in your area that would require electric cooperative employees to fix.

 

Also a big chuck of the cost of these systems are due to batteries having a much shorter life span than that of the solar panels and electric equipment.

If you can subtract the cost of batteries because you live in the city where most power interruptions are scheduled, or very short then you probably do not need a battery.

 

Once all these questions are answered then this will help you choose between your options.

 

Mostly the choices allow you certain freedoms:

  • Freedom from electric bills
  • Freedom from utilities
  • Freedom from rotating brownouts

Part two will discuss the choices available.
