World Daily News / 5 Filipinos missing after fishing near disputed shoal

Published November 28, 2016 


MANILA, Philippines –  Philippine coast guard officials say they've launched a search for five Filipinos who failed to return after fishing in the disputed Scarborough Shoal in bad weather off the country's northwest.

Coast guard spokesman Armand Balilo said Monday the fishermen left the shoal due to an approaching typhoon last week and have not been heard from. He said boats and ships passing in the area have been alerted.

Balilo said the Philippine coast guard plans to coordinate its search with its Chinese counterpart in the Scarborough area.

China seized the shoal in 2012 after a maritime standoff with Philippines. Chinese coast guard ships have been blocking Filipino fishermen from the shoal but were allowed back after Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte discussed the territorial rift with Chinese President Xi Jinping last month.

The burial of former dictator Ferdinand Marcos is inconsistent to President Rodrigo Duterte’s fight against graft and corruption.

Former Bayan Muna Representative Satur Ocampo, through the National Union of Peoples’ Lawyers (NUPL), on Monday asked the high court to reconsider its Nov. 8 decision dismissing the petitions against Marcos’ burial at the Libingan ng mga Bayani (LNMB).

In a motion for reconsideration, Ocampo said Duterte’s action violated Article II, Section 27 of the 1987 Constitution which requires the State to take positive and effective measures against graft and corruption.

As proof, NUPL said the Supreme Court itself on several instances, including the Sandiganbayan vs. Republic case, has forfeited $638-million in favor of the government.

“Thus, allowing Marcos the Dictator who has already been judged by the Filipino people in 1986 and even the Supreme Court as a plunderer in many cases to be interred at the LNMB on the mere reason that he, like the others, is listed as qualified in AFP Regulation G 161-375, disregards and violates not only the public purpose standard under Proclamation 86 (S 1954) but is a direct contravention and a violation of said provision of the Constitution,” the motion for reconsideration stated.

BAGUIO CITY—The burial of dictator Ferdinand Marcos at  Libingan ng mga Bayani may affect the Duterte administration’s peace negotiation with communist rebels, National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP) adviser Luis Jalandoni said on Friday.

Jalandoni also criticized President Duterte for being “insensitive” to martial law victims when he allowed the burial of Marcos at the heroes’ cemetery.

Addressing a peace forum at City Hall here, Jalandoni said Mr. Duterte must study the impact of the burial, which, he noted, violated the agreement between the government and the NDFP to respect human rights and international law.

He said the Duterte administration had “shown insensitivity to the feelings and positions of the many thousands of victims [by] not taking into consideration the decision of the people who ousted Marcos [in 1986].”

“The Duterte administration and the government peace panel must review the [rights agreement] and understand why they need to support the victims of tyranny,” Jalandoni told the Inquirer later.

PADAYON pa nga gi-atiman sa mga mananambal ang usa ka asawa human misulay sa pagpakamatay gumikan sa problema sa iyang bana niadtong Dominggo mga alas 7:00 sa gabii.

Nilanding sa Northern Mindanao Medical Center (NMMC) ning siyudad sa Cagayan de Oro ang biktima nga nailang si Beatrice (bansagon gitago), 48, minyo ug lumulupyo sa Dansolihon ning siyudad.

Sa impormasiyon gikabutyag nga gumikan sa pagkapuno na sa maong biktima sa binuhatan sa iyang bana hinungdan nga nakahukom na kini nga kutlo-on ang hinulamang kinabuhi pinaagi sa pag-inom og hilo sa ilaga.

Gikabutyag sa anak sa biktima nga nasuko ang ilang amahan sa dihang gi-apas sa asawa nga nag-inom sa silingan kay lage nahadlok kini og matripingan sa mga tambay.

Nagkalalis matud pa ang duruha ug nagbinayloay sa hait nga mga pulong ilabi na ang ilang amahan ngadto sa biktima kinsa gipakaulawan pag-ayo pinaagi sa pagsinggit-singgit sa mga malaw-ay nga mga pulong hinungdan nga gikasakit kini sa asawa ug misangpot sa pagsulay niini sa pagpakamatay.

Nakurat na lamang kini sa dihang nasuta sa igsoon nga nanirado sulod sa comfort room ang biktima ug sa dihang gipugos sa pag-abli nasutang nagkutaw kini og hilo sa ilaga ug giyarok niini.

Nasayran usab nga kini ang ikaduha na nga higayon sa pagsulay sa biktima sa pagpakamatay diin ang unang higayon giingong misulay kini sa pagpaligis sa usa ka bus ug napugngan sa dihang napara sa ilang uyoan ang maong sakyanan gumikan na usab kay daghan matud pa og textmate ang maong bana niini.

Sa pagsulat niini nga balita padayon pa nga nagpaalim sa nahisgutang balay tambalanan ang maong biktima.

NASA on the hunt for space poop geniuses
When you've got to go, but you're out there in space, zipped up in a spacesuit, with no toilet in sight and a crew of other astronauts around, what do you do?

MIAMI, USA – When you've got to go, but you're out there in space, zipped up in a spacesuit, with no toilet in sight and a crew of other astronauts around, what do you do?

NASA has launched a contest for inventors to solve this uncomfortable issue, and promises to award $30,000 to the best "space poop" solutions.

Inventors have until December 20 to submit designs for a personalized waste-wicking system that will handle everything, hands-free, for a period of up to 6 days.

"The old standby solution consisted of diapers," said the description of contest details at www.herox.com/SpacePoop.

"However, the diaper is only a very temporary solution, and doesn’t provide a healthy/protective option longer than one day."

Sometimes, astronauts have to wait even longer. The two men and one woman who packed themselves into a Russian Soyuz space capsule last week had to wait two full days between launching from Kazakhstan and arriving at the International Space Station.

The Soyuz is equipped with a portable toilet, which looks like an air-powered pee jug.

The mayor of Clay, West Virginia, resigned her position Tuesday after seemingly approving of a colleague’s comment on Facebook that referred to Michelle Obama as an “Ape in heels.”

The original post was made Monday by Pamela Ramsey Taylor, director of the Clay County Development Corp., who was opining on the transition from Mrs. Obama to Melania Trump as first lady.

“It will be so refreshing to have a classy, beautiful, dignified First Lady back in the White House,” Taylor wrote. “I’m tired of seeing a Ape in heels.”

According to WSAZ-TV, Mayor Beverly Whaling then replied, “Just made my day Pam.”

The story went viral, and both women removed their comments as well as their Facebook pages as claims of racism flooded the town. More than 150,000 people signed an Internet petition pushing for Whaling to be fired.

Osmeña


CEBU, Philippines - Mokabat dul-an P30 mil nga kantidad sa shabu ang nasakmit sa mga sakop sa San Nicolas Police Station gikan sa usa ka 48-anyos nga lalaki nga nangangkong “anak sa gawas” ni Mayor Tomas Osmeña atol sa buy-bust operation diha sa Magsaysay Street, Brgy. Suba ning Dakbayan sa Sugbo. Ang dinakpan giila nga si Rolando Yburan Osmeña, nga nagpuyo sa maong dapit. Ang hepe sa San Nicolas Police nga si Chief Insp. Keith Andaya miingon nga ilang gidakop si Osmeña human kini nibaligya og shabu sa asset sa kapulisan.

Gitug-an ni Andaya nga wala naapil sa ilang gihimo nga Oplan Tokhang si Osmeña kay bag-o lang sab kini misulod sa maong ilegal nga negosyo.

Nakuha sa mga polis gikan sa suspetsado ang usa ka medium size ug 20 ka gagmay nga pakete sa gituohang shabu nga mikantidad og P29, 500 ug usa ka video karera ug duha ka moli-moli gambling machines.

Ang suspetsado nga nahinabi sa mga tigbalita miingon nga “anak kini sa gawas” sa mayor ug misulay na kini nga makigkita sa mayor apan wala kini nahatagan og panahon.

“Minsan lumapit ako kang Osmeña hindi ko siya nakita, umuwi akong luhaan,” matud pa sa dinakpan.  Iyaha daw nga nahibaw-an nga anak kini sa mayor gumikan sa ilang kanhi komunikasyon.

North Korea has made a state request to officials in China pleading for them to stop referring to ‘glorious leader’ Kim Jong-un as fat.

Ministers have reportedly asked their neighbours to refrain from referring to the chunky Swiss cheese fan as Jin San Pang or ‘Kim Fatty III’ in media or conversations.

Apparently ‘Kim Fatty III’ is a widely used nickname for Kim in China along with Jin Pang Pang (Kim Fat Fatty) or Jin San Fei (Kim Abundant III).

Now According to the Apple Daily in Hong Kong, terrified North Korean government officials have called on their old comrades to take action before heads roll.

They are terrified the tyrant will find out about the insult and look for someone to blame.

In recent years, those that have fallen foul of the double-chinned despot have found themselves at the wrong end of a military firing range.

The bloated dictator is said to have piled on the pounds in recent years bingeing on swiss cheese, whiskey and scallops.

The Philippine government offers a hero’s burial for a murderous kleptocrat

Butcher in a box


DURING the 20 years Ferdinand Marcos spent as president of the Philippines, his official salary never rose above $13,500 a year. Yet by 1986, when the “people power” revolution prompted him and his wife Imelda to flee into exile in Hawaii, they had amassed a fortune. Mrs Marcos left behind her shoe collection, but her husband brought with him jewellery, gold bricks and freshly printed Philippine currency, together worth around $15m. In all, he and his cronies are thought to have plundered perhaps $10 billion. What is more, during his time in office thousands of Filipinos were tortured, jailed without due process or murdered by the regime’s thugs.

Marcos died in Hawaii; since 1993, his embalmed remains have been displayed in a glass box in his home province of Ilocos Norte. Rodrigo Duterte, the erratic strongman now running the Philippines, believes the dead dictator deserves better: he has approved the Marcos family’s long-standing request to bury their patriarch in Manila’s National Heroes’ Cemetery, with full military honours—an idea all Marcos’s other successors rejected.

(CNN) A new form of brain implant could one day help people with paraplegia regain control of their legs, based on a new study proving its potential in paralyzed monkeys.

Researchers at the École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) in Switzerland were able to restore movement in the legs of two paralyzed rhesus macaques within two weeks of them being injured; one regained mobility after just six days.

In the study, published Wednesday, two wireless implants worked together as a "brain-spine interface" to communicate nerve signals between the brains and spines of the monkeys -- where each implant was positioned.

The implants communicated with each other through a computer and enabled brain signals to jump over the point of injury along the spine.

By resuming this once-broken path of communication, the signals can arrive in the spine, and the resulting nerve stimulation means specific muscles within the legs of the two monkeys could be activated as needed on the brain's command.

"What's key here is that we stimulate to induce the desired movement of the animal," said Grégoire Courtine, professor of neural engineering at EPFL, who led the research. "Over the past decade, we've spent a lot of energy understanding how the spinal cord can be stimulated."

Similar research has been conducted in the past, with Courtine's team showing it could give paralyzed rats the ability to walk again, and even climb stairs, in previous studies. Other research groups have used electrodes and brain implants to restore movement in humans, both through their muscles as well as through prosthetic arms and legs.

But this new research in monkeys is the first to record brain activity and link this to nerves within the spinal cord itself. "The brain is in control," Courtine said.

It's also the first to go wireless.

The team now hopes the technology could one day be used in humans, but this will be no easy feat. "The idea is to go step-by-step," said Courtine.

Philippine Provinces / Osmeña kang Garganera: Kan-a tanang basura

CEBU, Philippines - Samtang nagpaabot nga mopagawas og desisyon ang korte mahitungod sa Inayawan Landfill padayon usab ang pagbinayloay og mga mahait nga pulong sila si Cebu City Mayor Tomas Osmeña ug Konsehal Joel Garganera mahitungod sa maong labayanan.

Gihagit ni Osmeña si Garganera nga kan-on niini ang tanang basura kay matud pa nagtuo ang Konsehal nga mahimo niining mahipos ang daghang basura sa siyudad.

“I challenge him to eat all the garbage, because he thinks he can just make it disappear”, matud ni Osmeña.

Niadtong niaging adlawa niingon ang mayor nga modawat siya og mga sugyot kun asa nga mga lugar sa dakbayan nga haum nga himoong temporary holding area sa mga basura kun mapasirad-an ang landfill sa Inayawan.

Nipadayag si Osmeña nga walay laing maayo nga kabutangan sa mga basura nga makuha matag adlawa gawas lang sa upat ka lugar nga gihulagway niiing ‘most logical choices’ sama sa SRP, NRA, Plaza Sugbo ug Malacañang sa Sugbo.

Giklaro sa mayor nga komedya lang ang iyang pamahayag nga mahimo sab nga anha ilabay sa Barangay Tinago ang mga basura. Apan kini nitataw nga dili gyud siya motugot nga mapasagdan sa kadalanan ang mga basura sa siyudad.

Dihang nasayod si Garganera niingon nga wala siyay pagbabag sa mayor. Iya kining gihagit nga mahimo niyang ilabay sa buhatan sa Philippine Army, Coast Guard, Navy, CENRO, DPWH ug COA kansang mga lugar sakop sa Brgy. Tinago nga gialagaran niini sulod sa 27 ka tuig. (BANAT NEWS)

World Daily News / China Just Won The U.S. Election

NOVEMBER 9, 2016

 
The election of Donald Trump will be a disaster for anyone who cares about human rights, U.S. global leadership, and media freedom. That means it’s a victory for Beijing, where as I write, the Chinese leaders near me in the palatial complex of Zhongnanhai are surely cracking open the drinks and making mean jokes.

There are four major victories for the Chinese leadership here, tempered by one possible fear. The first victory is the obvious one, the geopolitical victory; China no longer faces the prospect of Hillary Clinton, a tough, experienced opponent with a record of standing up to bullies. Instead, it faces a know-nothing reality TV star who barely seems aware that China has nuclear weapons, has promised to extort money from U.S. allies around China like South Korea and Japan, and has repeatedly undercut U.S. credibility as a defense partner. Trump is also exactly the kind of businessman who is most easily taken in by China — credulous, focused on the externalities of wealth, and massively susceptible to flattery. A single trip, with Chinese laying on the charm, could leave him as fond of China’s strongmen as he is of Russia’s Putin.
