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.
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.

MANILA, Philippines – As Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez finds himself embroiled in a controversy that involves his extramarital affairs, the Integrated Bar of the Philippines (IBP) issued a reminder that lawyers should always maintain the highest moral standards.

The IBP, the mandatory organization of lawyers in the country, said this in a statement released on Friday, March 31, responding to Alvarez's challenge to critics to have him disbarred over having a girlfriend while he's still married.

"The IBP has always and shall always maintain the highest standards of morality, behavior and professionalism among its members. As members of a noble profession and as officers of the court, lawyers are held to a higher standard than most and these standards are seriously enforced by the Supreme Court," the IBP said.

After decades of failures and misunderstandings, scientists have solved a cosmic riddle — what happens to the tons of dust particles that hit the Earth every day but seldom if ever get discovered in the places that humans know best, like buildings and parking lots, sidewalks and park benches.

The answer? Nothing. Look harder. The tiny flecks are everywhere.

Science and Research / Are Your Sperm in Trouble?

Let’s begin with sex.

As a couple finishes its business, millions of sperm begin theirs: rushing toward an egg to fertilize it. But these days, scientists say, an increasing proportion of sperm — now about 90 percent in a typical young man — are misshapen, sometimes with two heads or two tails.

Even when properly shaped, today’s sperm are often pathetic swimmers, veering like drunks or paddling crazily in circles. Sperm counts also appear to have dropped sharply in the last 75 years, in ways that affect our ability to reproduce.

“There’s been a decrease not only in sperm numbers, but also in their quality and swimming capacity, their ability to deliver the goods,” said Shanna Swan, an epidemiologist at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, who notes that researchers have also linked semen problems to shorter life expectancy.

BEIJING — John Oliver won rave reviews for his “Last Week Tonight” interview showing the Dalai Lama in all his candor and wit. Beijing, however, was not amused.

China’s foreign ministry on Tuesday said the exiled Tibetan Buddhist spiritual leader had appeared “deceptive” on the HBO show where he criticized some Chinese leaders as small minded and mocked Beijing’s portrayal of him as “a demon.”

The Dalai Lama’s comments about the contested issue of his reincarnation “appear to be funny and humorous but they’re all lies,” ministry spokesman Geng Shuang told reporters at a regularly scheduled news conference. He dismissed the show that aired Sunday night in the U.S. as merely intended for entertainment purposes.

China’s ruling Communist Party has long depicted the Dalai Lama as a dangerous separatist and frequently objects when he meets with global political leaders and entertainment figures, seeing those events as suggesting he is a world leader himself.

China’s leadership also insists it has the authority to appoint the Dalai Lama’s successor after his death. Traditional beliefs dictate that the highest figure in Tibetan Buddhism will be reincarnated in a boy who would subsequently be recognized as the new Dalai Lama by senior monks. But the current spiritual leader has said he would be happy if the title ends with his death.

During the interview conducted at the Dalai Lama’s residence in India’s northern hill town of Dharmsala, Oliver asked the Dalai Lama if he was worried about the Chinese authorities naming his successor. The Dalai Lama did not answer the question directly but told Oliver that Chinese hard-liners lacked common sense and “that part of the brain.”

“They describe me as a demon,” the Dalai Lama said, referring to Beijing’s officials. “Then I immediately (say) I am a demon with horns,” he said, sticking his fingers up on either side of his head to laugher from Oliver and his audience.

“Whatever they want they want to say, that’s their opinion. I have no negative feelings. I just feel a laugh, like that,” he added. “I practice taking others anger, suspicion, distrust and give them patience, tolerance and compassion. I practice that.”

VATICAN CITY (Reuters) - Pope Francis delivered another criticism of some members of his own Church on Thursday, suggesting it is better to be an atheist than one of "many" Catholics who he said lead a hypocritical double life.

In improvised comments in the sermon of his private morning Mass in his residence, he said: "It is a scandal to say one thing and do another. That is a double life."

"There are those who say 'I am very Catholic, I always go to Mass, I belong to this and that association'," the head of the 1.2 billion-member Roman Catholic Church said, according to a Vatican Radio transcript.

He said that some of these people should also say "'my life is not Christian, I don't pay my employees proper salaries, I exploit people, I do dirty business, I launder money, (I lead) a double life'."

"There are many Catholics who are like this and they cause scandal," he said. "How many times have we all heard people say 'if that person is a Catholic, it is better to be an atheist'."

Since his election in 2013, Francis has often told Catholics, both priests and lay people, to practice what their religion preaches.

In his often impromptu sermons, he has condemned sexual abuse of children by priests as being tantamount to a "Satanic Mass", said Catholics in the mafia excommunicate themselves, and told his own cardinals to not act as if they were "princes".

Less than two months after his election, he said Christians should see atheists as good people if they do good.

MANILA. Flanked by lawyers Arno Sanidad (left) and Jose Manuel Diokno (right), retired police officer Arthur Lascanas tells a news conference at the Philippine Senate in Pasay City on Monday, Feb. 20, 2017.

(AP) MANILA (Updated) -- A retired police officer said Monday that President Rodrigo Duterte, when he was Davao City mayor, ordered and paid him and other members of a so-called liquidation squad to kill criminals and opponents, including a kidnapping suspect, his family and a critical radio commentator.

Human rights lawyers who presented Arthur Lascañas at a news conference said his allegations could be grounds for impeaching Duterte.

But Duterte's camp dismissed Lascañas' statement as a mere “demolition job.” “The demolition job against President Duterte continues,” Communications Secretary Martin Andanar said in a statement Monday.

“Our people are aware that this character assassination is nothing but vicious politics orchestrated by sectors affected by the reforms initiated by the Duterte administration,” he added. 

Duterte has denied his administration backs unlawful killings of suspects under his deadly crackdown against illegal drugs that is feared to have killed more than 7,000 mostly drug users and petty drug pushers since he took office in June.

DUHA ka mga babaye ang nagbugno gumikan ilang giilugan ang usa ka lalaki nga maayong moromansa ug modala og palami ibabaw sa kama.

Ang insidente nahitabo alas 12 sa udto niadtong Lunes sa usa ka hardware sa usa ka dakong mall sa dalang Quimpo Boulevard, dakbayan sa Davao. Alas 8:08 sa gabii niadtong Lunes, nagpatala sa buhatan sa Talomo Police Station ang usa ka Mariel (bansagon gitago sa SuperBalita), 23, promodiser, ug nagpuyo sa Barangay Catalunan Grande ning dakbayan.

Si Mariel nagtug-an sa pulis nga samtang naa siya sa trabahoan, kalit miabot si alyas Stephany, 24, usa sab ka promodiser, kinsa maoy kanhi girlfriend sa iyang uyab nga si Jack (apilyedo gitago), 23.

Giingong hilabihan ang kasuko ni Stephany kay gibulagan siya ni Jack kay di kini kabalo nga modala sa ilang kombate ibabaw sa kama. Dugang nasayran nga misamot ang kasuko ni Stephany dihang gisultihan ni Mariel nga nakapa-booking na sila og kuwarto sa lodging house ni Jack alang sa mainiton nilang pagsaulog sa ilang Valentine's Day kagahapon.

Sa kasuko ni Stephany, iyang gisagpa si Mariel tumong sa tuong bahin sa nawong ug gibira ang buhok hinungdan nga mibalos og dumog ang nagreklamo. Sa kaulaw ni Mariel kay nasaksihan sa daghang mga kustomer, iyang gipatala ang nahitabo kaniya sa Talomo Police Station ug nakatakda silang mag-abot sa Barangay 74-A aron sila husayon.

February's Snow Moon will be no ordinary full moon for skywatchers in most parts of the world, as it coincides with a special lunar eclipse that will cast a shadow over the full moon's usual bright, glowing face.

On Friday (Feb. 10), just 10 minutes after the full moon peaks, so will a penumbral lunar eclipse. The moon will spend more than 4 hours coasting through Earth's outer shadow, called the penumbra, and it will appear darker than normal.

While penumbral eclipses can be difficult to see and don't look nearly as dramatic as a total lunar eclipse — in which the moon passes through the darkest, central part of Earth's shadow — Friday's penumbral eclipse will be darker and more noticeable than most lunar eclipses of its kind. That's because the moon will veer so deeply into Earth's penumbral shadow that it will be almost entirely submerged in shade.

BOGOTÁ, Colombia — Illegal drugs are a matter of national security, but the war against them cannot be won by armed forces and law enforcement agencies alone. Throwing more soldiers and police at the drug users is not just a waste of money but also can actually make the problem worse. Locking up nonviolent offenders and drug users almost always backfires, instead strengthening organized crime.

That is the message I would like to send to the world and, especially, to President Rodrigo Duterte of the Philippines. Trust me, I learned the hard way.

Tambagi ko Noy Kulas: Way spark

Dear Noy Kulas, Tawga lang ko og Jaz, 29 anyos but single pa kay nagapos sa responsibility sa akong parents. Ako ang kinamaguwangan sa among magsuon. Ang tanan nakong mga manghod nangaminyo while ako single pa. Human nako og gasto nila sa eskwela ug naka-grad­uate, nisulod sila sa kaminyuon samtang ako maoy nabinlan sa among parents kay naa na silay mga responsibility. Kining among parents sa una pa, ari magsalig nako human ko nakatrabaho kay gamay ra og suweldo ang among tatay. Di malikayan, dunay panahon nga apeke ko sa kwarta, ari ko makapanghuwam sa akong officemate nga mga duha ka tuig nang nanguyab nako. Buotan baya siya, Noy Kulas, pero way spark kon magkuyog mi. Duha ka tuig na siyang serious nga nanguyab nako pero wa nako gisugot kay di lang ko ganahan niya. Way laing nanguyab nako gawas lang niya. Unsa kaha, ako siyang sugton ug mo try og love niya? Maayo kaha, Noy?


Jaz, Suwayi ang pagsugot niya. Basin pa diay ma-develop ang imong feeling anang tawhana kon magsige na mo og kuyog. Pareho sa friendship, naay mga higayon nga mo level up, mosangko sa uyab-uyab tungod sa tumang ka suod. Basin mao nay kuwang diha, ang pag-discover sa usag usa. Kanang spark mao nay instant attraction sa opposite sex. Mahimong mo last og dugay ug mahimong dali ra mawagtang. Ang uban gani nga nagkadayon, wa magtuo nga sila magkauyab kay sa sugod way spark. Dihang nagkasuod, diha na nila ma-discover ang usag usa nga magkasinabot sila ug ganahan sila sa usag usa na. Basin, mao na ang mahitabo ninyo. Give it a try.
