The people of Mindoro are furious with the DENR’s approval of Environmental Compliance Certificate (ECC) for the operation of the Mindoro Nickel Project by... Intex Resources.

To express our protest, from November 17 onwards, volunteer-campaigne rs mostly from Alyansa Laban sa Mina (ALAMIN) will hold a HUNGER STRIKE AND FASTING, in front of the DENR Building in Visayas Avenue, Quezon City.

There are already 25 persons who are determined to fast or not to take anything except water, while holding a peaceful vigil in front of the DENR to manifest the protest of the people of Mindoro against the questionable and spurious approval of ECC to Intex Resources by the DENR.

The said hunger strike is planned to be held for indefinite number of days until the ECC is reconsidered and revoked by DENR Secretary Atienza.

On the first day of the vigil (November 17), the 25 hunger strikers will be joined by representatives from the local government units both from Occidental and Oriental Mindoro. The presence and participation of the following local government officials are expected but still to be confirmed, namely: Governor Arnan Panaligan (Oriental), Governor Josephine Ramirez-Sato (Occidental) , Vice Governor Estella Aceron (Oriental), Vice Governor Mario Gadiano (Occidental) , The Municipal Government of Victoria led by Mayor Alfredo Ortega and Vice Mayor Luis Castillet, the Municipal Government of Sablayan led by Mayor Godofredo Mintu and Vice Mayor Eduardo Gadiano, and other LGU officials.

On the second day of the vigil (November 18), the 25 fasters will be joined by the representatives from the Church, the Apostolic Vicariate of Calapan led by Bishop Warlito Cajandig and the Apostolic Vicariate of San Jose. The attendance of the two bishops is still to be confirmed. But priest and sisters from the two Vicariates have expressed their willingness to join the vigil and peaceful prayer protest. Seminarians too from stakeholder provinces will join the second day vigil. Bishop Broderick Pabillo of the CBCP-NASSA will be invited to celebrate the Eucharist for the group.

On the 3rd and 4th day of the vigil (November 19 and 20), the 25 hunger strikers will be joined by representatives of peasant group coming from Mindoro and other parts of the region to express their solidarity being one of the primary sectors that will be affected by the mining project. The national peasant federation of PAKISAMA is to be invited, along with other organized peasant groups.

On the 5th day of vigil (November 21), the 25 hunger strikers will be joined by the civil society organizations led by Alyansa Tigil Mina. Other development, HR and environmental organizations to be invited include: LRC-KsK, Philippine Misereor Partnership (PMP), PANLIPI, Ateneo Human Rights Center, ULAN, Haribon, among others. Fr. Robert Reyes will be invited to lead the prayer vigil and to do a “Takbo Alay Para sa Kalikasan” along with other campaign activities.

The succeeding program of activities for the vigil and participation of other solidarity groups/sectors days will be arranged in coordination with Alyansa Tigil Mina (ATM) and other Manila-based NGOs.

Please join us in this campaign to save our environment!

Marathon Adidas King of the Road 2009
Adidas King of the Road (KOTR) 2009
October 25, 2009
Bonifacio High Street, Global City

Adidas King of the Road registration forms will be available on September 21, 2009 in participating adidas stores. You can register for King of the Road starting September 21, 2009 in participating adidas stores: adidas Greenbelt3, Trinoma, Megamall, Podium, Rockwell, Mall of Asia, Katipunan, RUNNR in Bonifacio High Street, and in Planet Sports: Rockwell, Greenhills, Glorietta, & Trinoma.

The Adidas KOTR singlet will be given upon registration. Also, when you present you registration form in any participating Adidas stores, as much as 25% off will be given for your purchase of running top and bottom and shoes.

And on October 18, there will be an Adidas Running Expo, exclusive to all King of the Road participants. Race bibs will be distributed on the same day. There will be a free carbo-loading event for all participants. Looks like this will be a nice party for runners.

After last weekend's Shape & Mens Health Run which made me realised that I'm really out of shape, I decided that I shall start everything from scratch again. Therefore, it's with this edition of the adidas King Of The Road 2009 that I will start off with my periodization phase. 21KM worth of easy but quality run is what I am looking for, not speed. Though my legs are yet to be 100%, I believe this run won't take too much out of it. Besides, this will probably be the "last" event before the fasting month begins. So, I will have plenty of time to rest, provided I don't get myself involve in any stressful weekend training. Haha...

Arrived at 5.15am and was surprised that the The fort bonifacio car park was pretty filled up. Was lucky that I found myself a good spot. Soon, I met up with my friends as we agreed to meet up in ROX sport shop. And quick change into my running gear and off I went looking for the toilet.

Michael Jackson is dead

Michael Joseph Jackson (August 29, 1958 – June 25, 2009)[2] was an American recording artist, entertainer, and businessman. The seventh child of the Jackson family, he debuted on the professional music scene at the age of 11 as a member of The Jackson 5 and began a solo career in 1971 while still a member of the group. Referred to as the "King of Pop" in subsequent years, five of his solo studio albums are among the world's best-selling records: Off the Wall (1979), Thriller (1982), Bad (1987), Dangerous (1991) and HIStory (1995).
In the early 1980s, he became a dominant figure in popular music and the first African-American entertainer to amass a strong crossover following on MTV. The popularity of his music videos airing on MTV, such as "Beat It", "Billie Jean" and Thriller—credited for transforming the music video into an art form and a promotional tool—helped bring the relatively new channel to fame. Videos such as "Black or White" and "Scream" made Jackson an enduring staple on MTV in the 1990s. With stage performances and music videos, Jackson popularized a number of physically complicated dance techniques, such as the robot and the moonwalk. His distinctive musical sound and vocal style influenced many hip hop, pop and contemporary R&B artists.

One of the few artists to have been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice, his other achievements include multiple Guinness World Records—including one for "Most Successful Entertainer of All Time"—13 Grammy Awards, 13 number one singles in his solo career—more than any other male artist in the Hot 100 era—and the sales of over 750 million albums worldwide. Cited as one of the world's most famous men, Jackson's highly publicized personal life, coupled with his successful career, made him a part of popular culture for almost four decades.
Jackson died on June 25, 2009 at the age of 50.

Honest Filipino airport cops

Honest Filipino airport cops rewarded with all-expenses paid holiday

Honesty has its own reward. For Corporals Eduardo Duran and Irvin Hawk of the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) police, it’s a family holiday in any of the country’s top destinations.
Irvin Hawk, Ace Durano and Eduardo Duran

Irvin Hawk, Ace Durano and Eduardo Duran

The two honest cops were recognized by the Department of Tourism (DOT) for returning a black bag containing wads of Russian Rubbles and US Dollars equivalent to almost P500,000 cash. The owner of the bag turned out to be Russian tourist Sergey Zhelenzyak, who was with his family for a vacation in the country.

“The tourism industry commends people like Corporals Duran and Hawk who render excellent service and present the best of the country through their exemplary ways. We hope our small token of appreciation highlights their big deed,” said Durano. The cops, accompanied by M/Gen Angel Atutubo (Ret), Assistant General Manager of the Manila Airport Authority, paid a courtesy call at the DOT office.

Duran and Hawk, in an interview, mentioned that Zhelenzyak was profusely grateful to them for returning his bag, with the money and other contents which included a digital camera, intact.

“These gentlemen prove that our people are also one of the best reasons to visit the country. Even the finest, luxurious services can never outshine the warmth, honesty and sincerity of our people,” said Undersecretary Eduardo Jarque, Jr., Tourism Planning and Promotions.

The two airport cops found the bag unattended in one of the immigration counters at the NAIA. They reported the lost bag which had an identification tag in Russian writing, to their Intelligence Division. After paging for the owner and getting no response, Duran and Hawk tracked him down through his embarkation card at the Immigration Counter. They finally reached Zhelenzyak, who was already in Bacolod, through his travel agent.

The tourist told them that he didn’t expect to get his money back, which he was saving for a holiday in the country with his family. Zhelenzyak, who was on his fourth visit to the country, vowed to them that he will promote the Philippines and the commendable values of its people.

Duran has been an airport police for 10 years, while Hawk has rendered service for 27 years.
