A nation’s odyssey toward a popular dictatorship
Yielding power when his 6-year term ends is a vanishing option for Duterte, not least because he would face prosecution for extra-judicial execution of thousands

It has been a year since Rodrigo Duterte assumed the presidency of the Philippines. Davao’s favorite son began his reign on the offensive, going on a killing spree that would claim the lives of over 7,000 suspected drug users in the next 12 months. He ended his first year uncharacteristically on the defensive, removing himself from the public eye for almost a week as the Philippine Army repeatedly tried but failed to dislodge the so-called Maute Group that had taken over and terrorized Marawi, the cultural capital of Islam in the Philippines.

A month earlier, everything seemed to be going Duterte’s way. Using the Maute takeover of Marawi as an excuse, he finally delivered on his threat to declare martial law, which he had made several times over the last few months. The Mautes’ move had been in response to a failed attempt by the Philippine military to apprehend a much-wanted leader of the notorious Abu Sayyaf terrorist organization, to whom the group is allied, who was believed to be in the area. Duterte’s response – the declaration of martial law for the whole of Mindanao, the Philippines’ second largest island, to address a local incident – struck many as a case of overkill.

PARIS, France — Ocean levels rose 50 percent faster in 2014 than in 1993, with meltwater from the Greenland ice sheet now supplying 25 percent of total sea level increase compared with just five percent 20 years earlier, researchers reported Monday.

The findings add to growing concern among scientists that the global watermark is climbing more rapidly than forecast only a few years ago, with potentially devastating consequences.

Hundreds of millions of people around the world live in low-lying deltas that are vulnerable, especially when rising seas are combined with land sinking due to depleted water tables, or a lack of ground-forming silt held back by dams.

Major coastal cities are also threatened, while some small island states are already laying plans for the day their drowning nations will no longer be livable.

Part 1
Dyeing the Paper


1

Mix water and coffee in a bowl or pan. This mixture will be used to stain the paper so that it has a more ‘warn-money’ look. Use about 3 tablespoons of coffee (all though a little more or a little less will not really make too much of a difference.) You can also add a few drops of green food dye to give you paper a more olive-y look.

You can also use tea to dye your fake money. Make a pot of black tea--it doesn’t matter what kind so long as it is black tea. Brew it for a bit longer than you normally would brew drinking tea (so let it sit for five or more minutes.) The extra time will make the tea a bit darker in color.

Drive for Uber or Lyft. If you have a reliable vehicle, a clean driving record, and a smartphone, driving for a car-share company is a real possibility. By working during peak travel times and optimizing your car for ideal gas mileage, you can make up to $25/hour on your own schedule.

Mow lawns or plow driveways. If you’re willing to mow yards or shovel or plow snow in the winter, you could easily start your own snow removal and lawn mowing business on the side. While you can usually find work by reaching out to your local community via word-of-mouth, flyers, or online message boards, the website Plowz & Mowz allows you to set up an online profile and reach more customers in your area.

These will be the world's 10 biggest cities in 2030 — and none of them are in the US or Europe
Rebecca Harrington Jun 19, 2017, 11:33 AM ET



The human population is growing at an alarming rate. By 2050, there will be almost 10 billion people on the planet.

We've been hearing this for years, but where is all this growth happening?

Today, Tokyo is the most populous city in the world, with about 38 million residents.

New York City is still in the top 10 ranking, with its nearly 8.5 million people. But in the next three decades, that's going to change.

While population growth in the US and Europe stagnates, the number of people living in the Middle East, Asia, and Africa is going to skyrocket.

The Hottest Body Part? For a Sapiosexual, It’s the Brain
In a society obsessed with physical appearance, sexual attraction for some people is based on intellect, and not necessarily on looks.
By ANNA NORTH
JUNE 2, 2017
https://mobile.nytimes.com/


Aboubacar Okeke-Diagne finds internet pornography a little disappointing. The problem is the dialogue: “It seems like a lot of pointless small talk.”

Mr. Okeke-Diagne, 23, who lives in Brooklyn, identifies as sapiosexual. Though definitions vary, the term generally describes people for whom sexual attraction is based on intellect, and not necessarily on looks.

For Mr. Okeke-Diagne, being sapiosexual means intellectual conversation is a key part of dating and sex. While some couples might exchange racy photos or texts, he once sent a woman he was seeing a multipage erotic story he had written that included references to the Julian calendar, the decimal system and global climate change. Writing the story was such a turn-on for him that he tried to find similar erotica online — with little success.

Burning the midnight oil may well burn out your brain.
By Andy Coghlan
Source: New Scientist 26 MAY 2017 - 12:10 PM  UPDATED 5 HOURS AGO


The brain cells that destroy and digest worn-out cells and debris go into overdrive in mice that are chronically sleep-deprived.

In the short term, this might be beneficial – clearing potentially harmful debris and rebuilding worn circuitry might protect healthy brain connections. But it may cause harm in the long term, and could explain why a chronic lack of sleep puts people at risk of Alzheimer’s disease and other neurological disorders, says Michele Bellesi of the Marche Polytechnic University in Italy.

Bellesi reached this conclusion after studying the effects of sleep deprivation in mice. His team compared the brains of mice that had either been allowed to sleep for as long as they wanted or had been kept awake for a further eight hours. Another group of mice were kept awake for five days in a row – mimicking the effects of chronic sleep loss.

But it may cause harm in the long term, and could explain why a chronic lack of sleep puts people at risk of Alzheimer’s disease and other neurological disorders.

The team specifically looked at glial cells, which form the brain’s housekeeping system. Earlier research had found that a gene that regulates the activity of these cells is more active after a period of sleep deprivation.

One type of glial cell, called an astrocyte, prunes unnecessary synapses in the brain to remodel its wiring. Another type, called a microglial cell, prowls the brain for damaged cells and debris.

USA ka retired US Army ug ang iyang asawa nga Pinay ang gipangdala sa Tugbok Police Station human wa nakaagwanta ang langyaw kay gihaso-haso sa iyang asawa ang iyang kinatawo panahon nga mahubog.

Alas 8:45 sa gabii niadtong Lunes dungan nga gipangdala sa Mobile Patrol sa kapulisan sa Tugbok si Robert (bansagon gitago), 52, ug iyang asawa nga si Eula (bansagon gitago), 35, nagpuyo sa Deca Homes, Barangay Tacunan, Tugbok District, ning siyudad.

Subay sa blotter nga natala sa presinto nuwebe, nasayran nga mireklamo si Robert kay dihang mahubog ang iyang asawa mahimo kini nga sadista.

Giingon nga alas 8:00 sa gabii niadtong Lunes nahubog ug nag-wild si Eula hinungdan nga naigo ang bana sa nagkadaiyang parte sa iyang kalawasan. Daw tigre nga nagpangagot ang asawa ug hinayhinay nga miduol sa iyang bana ug iyaha kining gipalingkod dayon gihaso-haso ang kinatawo.

Wa pa matagbaw ang asawa iyaha pang gisulod ang iyang tudlo sa lubot sa langyaw. Sa dihang miangal na iyang bana, gituok ug gikulata sa suspek ang biktima hinungdan nga nakapanawag og Central 911 ang bana aron magparesponde og pulis.

Wa nakabalibad ang asawa pag-abot sa mobile patrol ug didto nasuta sa presinto nga kini ang ginahimo sa asawa sa iyang bana kung lango kini sa ilimnong makahubog.

Sa kasamtangan, ang nasampit nga bana nagpa-check up sa Southern Philippines Medical Center samtang gihandos na ang reklamo sa barangay level aron didto sila husayon. (JPC/Uban sa taho ni Erin Lumosbog/DXDC RMN Davao)

Don't let dictator Duterte mortgage our future like Marcos did
'A dictator once mortgaged our future to imperialist powers and bankrupted this nation. We cannot let another dictator do that again.'

Senator Leila de Lima
Published 9:02 AM, May 18, 2017
Updated 9:02 AM, May 18, 2017

 
Everything seems to be going Duterte’s way. With Western criticism of his war on drugs and anti-human rights policies, Duterte has found a friend in China, a country that is not exactly famous for its respect and adherence to human rights or democracy, having been an authoritarian one-party communist state in the past 77 years.

Duterte’s relationship with China may be as personal as it is now official government policy. And it is paying off. In the recent UNHRC universal periodic review for the Philippines, only China out of 47 countries believed Senator Cayetano’s spiel on the Duterte regime’s “sterling” human rights record. The rest of the 46 countries did not buy Cayetano’s sales pitch and instead asked the Duterte regime to stop the extrajudicial killings under his government.

Apparently having a big friend to rely on and take your side in international human rights forums is not the only consequence of Duterte’s friendship with China. The friendship is no longer between him and China, but has become a new chapter in our foreign relations as the Philippines’ rejuvenated relationship with its most dangerous rival over its claims in the West Philippine Sea. A new economic paradigm for Philippine development is in the offing, and it eerily involves mortgaging our future once again to an economic giant, this time of a rising Chinese expansionism, even its own sort of communist imperialism.

Supreme Court Senior Associate Justice Antonio Carpio has launched a book that says China’s claims to virtually the entire South China Sea are baseless and said he would make an electronic copy in Mandarin available on the internet so it could be accessible to the Chinese people.

Carpio said public opinion, including in China, could pressure Beijing to comply with last year’s arbitral ruling that invalidated China’s historic claims in favor of the Philippines based on the 1982 UN Convention on the Law of the Sea.

The Wabi-Sabi Self
A Japanese aesthetic philosophy provides a fresh perspective on our so-called physical flaws.
https://experiencelife.com/
JESSIE SHOLL · JANUARY / FEBRUARY 2014


About five years ago, I stopped getting carded at bars and began hearing “ma’am” more often than “miss.” Though I was in my late 30s, these encounters stung at first. I consoled myself with the fact that I really was too old to be mistaken for an 18-year-old, and “ma’am” is at least a gesture of respect. I knew lamenting lost youth was, at best, an exercise in futility. I’d watched friends agonize about aging, and I’d never seen the point. But it was still hard to look in the mirror and see the lines underneath my eyes and the pouchiness under my chin without feeling disappointed.

Then I learned about the Japanese concept of wabi sabi, or “imperfect beauty.” The concept has its roots in the traditional Japanese tea ceremony and is sometimes explained by using the example of a well-loved teacup, made by an artist’s hands, cracked or chipped by use. Such traces remind the observer that nothing is permanent — even fixed objects are subject to change.

The classical Greek ideal of beauty, which underpins much of the Western physical aesthetic, celebrates smooth, symmetrical perfection. Wabi sabi prizes authenticity. The cracks in the old teacup are seen as assets rather than flaws. “Wabi sabi is a different kind of looking, a different kind of mindset,” explains Robyn Griggs Lawrence, author of Simply Imperfect: Revisiting the Wabi-Sabi House (New Society Publishers, 2011). “It’s the true acceptance of finding beauty in things as they are.”

Yet wabi sabi is more than a way of looking at things. It is “a way of life that appreciates and accepts complexity while at the same time values simplicity,” writes Richard Powell in Wabi Sabi Simple (Adams Media, 2004). He says it acknowledges three simple realities: “Nothing lasts, nothing is finished, and nothing is perfect.”

In the United States, most of us grew up with a worldview that is decidedly more influenced by classical Greece. Unless our bodies fit a certain ideal, we resent them. This is where adopting a wabi-sabi outlook can be eye opening — and mind opening. By perceiving ourselves through this generous lens, we can stop endlessly striving for the ideal body and focus instead on real physical health. All it takes is a shift in perception.

Wabi-Sabi: The Art Of Imperfection
The Japanese tradition of wabi-sabi offers an inspiring new way to look at your home, and your whole life.
by Robyn Griggs Lawrence, from Natural Home
September-October 2001


According to Japanese legend, a young man named Sen no Rikyu sought to learn the elaborate set of customs known as the Way of Tea. He went to tea-master Takeeno Joo, who tested the younger man by asking him to tend the garden. Rikyu cleaned up debris and raked the ground until it was perfect, then scrutinized the immaculate garden. Before presenting his work to the master, he shook a cherry tree, causing a few flowers to spill randomly onto the ground.

To this day, the Japanese revere Rikyu as one who understood to his very core a deep cultural thread known as wabi-sabi. Emerging in the 15th century as a reaction to the prevailing aesthetic of lavishness, ornamentation, and rich materials, wabi-sabi is the art of finding beauty in imperfection and profundity in earthiness, of revering authenticity above all. In Japan, the concept is now so deeply ingrained that it’s difficult to explain to Westerners; no direct translation exists.

Broadly, wabi-sabi is everything that today’s sleek, mass-produced, technology-saturated culture isn’t. It’s flea markets, not shopping malls; aged wood, not swank floor coverings; one single morning glory, not a dozen red roses. Wabi-sabi understands the tender, raw beauty of a gray December landscape and the aching elegance of an abandoned building or shed. It celebrates cracks and crevices and rot and all the other marks that time and weather and use leave behind. To discover wabi-sabi is to see the singular beauty in something that may first look decrepit and ugly.

Health and Food / You can lose weight without dieting
« on: May 02, 2017, 03:48:46 PM »
By: Cory Quirino - Columnist / @Inq_LifestylePhilippine Daily Inquirer / 04:05 AM May 02, 2017


The perennial dieter knows that if you don’t have sustaining power with your weight loss plan, then your desired goal will never be met.

But who dictates the image of sexiness anyway?

The general notion is that to be slim means to be sexy. But how about curvaceous and sexy, or fat and fabulous? No one can be the final judge except one’s health profile.

Your body mass index (BMI) medical studies have validated this truth—if you maintain a balanced weight within the standards set by health experts, chances are, you can expect good health.

BMI is an accurate measure of your body fat, which is based on your weight in relation to your height. This rule applies to adult men and women aged 20 and up.

It is also used as a screening tool to determine of a person is underweight, overweight or obese. A BMI between 25 and 29.9 is considered overweight, while 30 and above is obese.

Earth’s Carbon Dioxide Breaking Dangerous Records
We’ve reached a new milestone. And it's not something we can be proud of. In fact, it’s something we should be scared of.
http://wallstreetpit.com/113364-earths-carbon-dioxide-breaking-dangerous-records/
April 30, 2017


Last year, our planet experienced several record-breaking milestones in terms of high temperature. As if that wasn’t bad enough, we also managed to breach a long-standing record involving carbon dioxide. Specifically, the amount of carbon dioxide in our atmosphere surpassed the 400 ppm (parts per million) record it hit back in 2013. The last time our planet had that much carbon dioxide in the air was millions of years back, when our earliest predecessors were probably using stones as tools; the world was a few degrees hotter; and sea levels were several meters higher.

After reaching that alarming milestone in 2013, scientists warned that the situation was degrading even further and that within only a short period of time, we would break that record again. And they were right.

On April 18, 2017, scientists at the Mauna Loa observatory in Hawaii recorded our planet’s most grim milestone yet: our atmospheric carbon dioxide level is now at 410.28 ppm. And while this may not necessarily result in immediate dramatic changes in our climate, it’s still a grave reminder of how much we are trashing our planet.

Scientists first began measuring atmospheric CO2 content in the 1950s. Back then, when the industrial revolution hadn’t begun yet, the amount of CO2 in the air was only 280 ppm. But an extremely powerful El Nino took place, causing a number of forest fires that released a considerable amount of stored carbon into the atmosphere, driving up carbon dioxide levels. And human activities entered the picture, most notably, the relentless burning of fossil fuels to generate power and electricity. Our atmosphere didn’t stand a chance. From 280 ppm, atmospheric carbon dioxide content increased by about 42% to its current level.
