Imbes na mabuwisit, pinagtatawanan na lang ni Partido Demokratiko Pilipino-Lakas ng Bayan (PDP-Laban) Manila mayoral candidate at dating Mayor Alfredo S. Lim ang mga sumbong na may mga nagpapakalat daw ng tsismis na siya ay umatras na bilang kandidatong mayor sa darating na eleksyon sa Mayo.
WE’VE all heard of—or seen—the boogeyman. He’s the monster who hid under your bed and in your closet when you were a kid. He gave you nightmares and made you afraid of the dark. But what happens when a real-life boogeyman exists? In the early 1900s, too large a number of unfortunate children found out after meeting Albert Fish.
FOR most people, May 14 is a day like any other. But for the residents of Donalsonville, Georgia, it’s a terrifying slice of the town’s history. On that day in 1973, a group of newly-escaped prison inmates—brothers Carl and Billy Isaacs, their half-brother Wayne Coleman, and George Dungee—committed the state’s bloodiest massacre since 1887.
Kung matatandaan, “nabitin” ang pagsisimula ng SONA (state of the nation address) ni Pang. Duterte noong isang taon, dahil kahit nakudeta, err, napalitan, ng bagong mayorya sa Kongreso si Alvarez nang grupo ni madam GMA, aba’y ‘feeling’ siya pa rin ang “bosing” at siya pa nga ang “sumalubong” kay PDU30 nang dumating ito sa Kongreso.
It’s okay for us voters to listen to these candidates, review their performance or service record and gauge whether or not they will be keeping their campaign promises or, in the case of reelectionists or old, veteran politicians, if they have kept the promises they made the last time they ran.
I have heard of brother Muslims who are also wondering why Muslims required to testify are not made to swear on the Sacred Koran. As a Muslim, candidate Shariff Abdani insists to make this swearing on the Sacred Koran a must in court for Muslims are afraid to lie after swearing on the Sacred Koran; and so should Catholics and Christians by swearing on the Holy Bible.
But the tides of March marched on instead for embattled Budget Sec. Benjamin Diokno, who was appointed BSP chief by President Duterte in a breath-taking emergency extraction from the Department of Budget and Management’s lofty perch, which has been the target of serial attacks by congressional leaders.
Reelectionist Senator Sonny Angara said private companies need not worry about hiring female employees in light of the recently approved law extending the paid maternity leave to 105 days from 60, citing the strength of women workers that is good for business and the benefit of achieving gender equality in the workplace.
ONE pervasive feature upon the landscape of the paranormal is what is often referred to as “spontaneous human combustion.” It typically involves victims who suddenly and inexplicably burst into flames, often burning down to cinders while oddly leaving their surroundings unburned. It is not uncommon at all to hear of cases of people burning to a crisp only to leave their chairs, furniture, and even paper or clothes around them completely untouched, very weird considering the immense temperatures needed to burn the human body, which is mostly composed of water, to that degree. Often there is evidence of the bodies having been burned from the inside rather than the outside, and all in all it is a very bizarre phenomenon that has had much speculation but few answers. While many possible natural occurrences have been proposed for spontaneous human combustion, could these cases be indicative of some little known forces, or even the power of psychokinesis, or literally the ability to start flames from nothing, totally subconsciously and out of the victims’s control?
ON a fine September day in 1992, two runners were working their way through New South Wales’s Belanglo State Forest and made a horrific discovery: a decaying body. This body would only be the first of seven discovered as part of the string of killings now known as the “Backpacker murders”, committed by one Ivan Milat.
“I really hope our country will one day be treated as a genuine independent entity,” declared director Fu Yue, to wild cheers at Taiwan’s Golden Horse Film Awards last November 17 when she won the Best Documentary award. “This is my biggest wish as a Taiwanese,” she added.
PEOPLE ask about so many things from candidates in the coming elections. Watching debates on TV, I saw how senatoriables grapple for answers to questions thrown at them. Most of us are quickly turned-off to bets with unimpressive responses and admire those who have bright ideas on almost anything.
SINUSULAT natin ito, mga kabayan, patuloy sa pagiging ‘viral’ ang ‘video’ ni NCRPO director, police major general, Guillermo Eleazar (higit 25,000 views), kung saan nakitang “dinibdiban” at pinagmumura niya ang isang kriminal na pulis sa ‘anti-drugs unit’ ng Pasig City/Eastern Police District na natimbog sa kasong ‘robbery extortion.’
