Baranggay Election

Today Baranggay Election is being held, and for me its an ordinary monday morning except the fact that I don’t have work. Well that’s one of the few benefits of election in my opinion. I am 29 years old but i haven’t voted yet, actually I didn’t even registered to be a voter and my reason is quite simple I don’t want  to vote. And people always ask me why? They say it’s our way to exercise our rights and democracy. And I say this is my way of exercising my democracy by not voting. I think whoever you vote does not change a thing even if they win, it is our system. Do you think they would still remember you after election? Maybe, if they are your friends or relatives or maybe not if your just another vote they need for them to win. I’ve done some research why people run for offices in our government, even in Baranggay Elections. Did you know a Bgy Captain’s salary ranges from P7,000 to 11,000 depending on the class of their municipality aside from their budget for their constituents and Baranggay. Senator’s salary P35,000/mo. and a fixed monthly budget of about 2M pesos.  P200 milyon are their budget for the Pork Barrel in a year, automatically 10% of it or P20 M are for their pockets multiply it to the years they SERVE?  our country.  Are you aware how much debt we owe from foreign countries? How many regimes has passed since you were born? Did any one of those solved our way of life, the filipino life? What does your local officials did to improve your way of living? I am not pointing each official to be corrupt, I just wish they do their job with all honesty and dignity. Because for a common Filipino who barely gets thru their daily life, they might be the solution to their problem or so they think. 

 I’ve included the salary of government employees as of 2001 which I stumbled upon on the net(does not include budgets). Step 1 being the entry-level amount to Step 8 as the highest amount a particular position can get.

pinay scandals

According to wikipedia A scandal is a widely publicized incident involving allegations of wrong-doing, disgrace, or moral outrage. A scandal may be based on reality, or the product of false allegations, or a mixture of both.
Sex Scandals on the net being viewed by old and young alike, pirated CD’s and DVD’s scattered on sidewalks and malls that are just arms length. Made from ones videocam, a spycam, cellphone or camera to record the event that should have been a private collection, but for some it’s their way to boast, to get some revenge or just to have some money. It really is disgusting to see those people who are getting copies of those materials that shows lascivious acts without consulting their conscience.
To tell you frankly I’m one of those pinoy that is always updated when it comes to scandals. Well I don’t differ much from other Filipino’s. I even joined some yahoo groups, forums, communities and even created some of my own scandals when I was younger. I still have some but I just keep it to myself, my own private collection. But one time one of my scandals was accidentally viewed by my officemate and he then showed it to my other officemates. It happened when one time I had a one night stand, and I (luckily) recorded it in my camera with video, but to my dismay when I got home my computer is not working, so I decided to copy it first on a computer in the workshop at my office. After a few days Marco accidentally viewed my scandal while trying to find some mp3. But the one that really exposed me is Elmer Marquez, a fellow technician. And that scandal really haunted me for quite some time even our janitress knew about it. I just hope that it will be offs limit to the outside world especially Quiapo. For me it’s not something I could brag about, well maybe when I was younger, but now that I’m engaged it’s to embarrassing if she’ll know about it. So I don’t know how those girls thought or what they’ve done when they saw themselves on some videos that are too humiliating. I even heard in some news that a girl committed suicide because of a scandal that involved her. It is quite degrading especially in our country who loves to criticize other people, make fun of the ill fact that it is a plague and not something we should be proud of. It is damaging our reputation and character as a Filipino.

But what can I do? I am but a simple voice, a shadow of a crowded street, a sinner as much as they are. I just hope this simple blog can change and save our pride, what’s left of it.

here’s some comments from some pinoys regarding on some blog about scandal which is quite disturbing.

hindi na issue ito dahil ang buhay ng pilipino ay nabubuo sa iskandalo.baka gusto lang nuong babae na sumikat kahit sandali kaya nagpakita ng hubad.

sana yung nanay mo na lang ang nasa sex iskandal para may issue sayo ang topic na ito…

well, masasabi ko lang laht nga tayo may pervertness diba? malay natin isa sa atin ngayon may pinakatago-tago din na kalaswaan, di mo mamalayan bukas makalawa mailalagay na rin sa internet or it will be pronounce in public, if that will be the case masisisi mo ba sarili mo na sana di ka na lang sinapian ng kalibugan… o ang mismong taong magkakalat ng mga yun ang mismong ituturo mo na gago??? ano sa tingin niyo? ang mag-syota na yan halos magkalive-in na. dahil sa kabiguan nung lalake sa kanilang relasyon ikinalat niya, ngaun sino ang sisishin mo? yung babae na nagpakatotoo sa oras na ginagawa niya yun dahil sa meron siyang naramdaman(kahit ano pa man) para sa lalake at pumayag ito o ang lalake na gusto lang makahiganti?

Let us change how pinoy thinks first then maybe, just maybe we could change how the world thinks.

Anime versus Manga

Anime is an abbreviation of the word “animation”. Outside Japan, the term most popularly refers to animation originating from Japan; and to the Occidental way of thinking, not all animations are considered anime. Anime is therefore usually considered to be a subset of animation.
Anime is traditionally hand drawn, but like in most animation computer assisted animation techniques have become quite common in recent years.Anime is sometimes referred to as Japanimation, but this term has fallen into disuse. Japanimation saw the most usage during the 1970s and 1980s and had continued use up until before the mid-1990s anime resurgence. In general, the term now only appears in nostalgic contexts. The term is much more commonly used within Japan to refer to domestic animation. Since anime or animēshon is used to describe all forms of animation, Japanimation is used to distinguish Japanese work from that of the rest of the world.

Manga is the Japanese word for comics (sometimes also called komikku) and print cartoons. In their modern form, manga date from shortly after World War II but have a long, complex history in earlier Japanese art. In Japan, manga are widely read by children and adults of all ages, so that a broad range of subjects and topics occur in manga, including action/adventure, romance, sports and games, historical drama, comedy, science fiction and fantasy, mystery, horror, sexuality, and business and commerce, among others. Since the 1950s, manga have steadily become a major part of the Japanese publishing industry,representing a 481 billion yen market in Japan in 2006 (approximately 4.4 billion dollars). Manga have also become increasingly popular worldwide. In 2006, the United States manga market was $175-200 million. Manga are typically printed in black-and-white, although some full-color manga exist

ASIMO

Ever since I was a child and started to watch robots such as Voltes V, Mazinger Z, Daimos and other robots in movies. I was fascinated and at the same time curious about how does it really works. I used to wreck all my toys just to find the answer to my question, but to my dismay the answer was still aint there. Years passed and I took Electronics Engineering Technology(ESET) at Technological University of the Philippines (TUP) because of the fact that i was still amazed how robots work. I graduated after 10 years studying in college but never did I found the answer. This is the closest thing to the answer, and still I’m not contented.
ASIMO Humanoid Robot ASIMO (Advanced Step in Innovative MObility) is a bipadel humanoid robot from Honda . This robot has been evolving since its inception in 1986. Current version of ASIMO is 1.2 meter tall and weighs 43 Kg. This size enables ASIMO to actually perform tasks within the realm of a human living environment. It also walks in a smooth fashion which closely resembles that of a human being. Advanced Walking Technology Predicted Movement Control (for predicting the next move and shifting the center of gravity accordingly) is combined with existing walking control know-how to create i-WALK (intelligent real-time flexible walking) technology, permitting smooth changes of direction.
Walking by putting one leg before the other was successfully achieved. However, taking nearly five seconds between steps,it walked very slowly in a straight line.To increase walking speed, or to allow walking on uneven surfaces or slopes, fast walking must be realized.

The New ASIMO has made great leaps forward from its predecessor. In fact, the New ASIMO can walk along with you (holding your hand if you wish), and features advanced mobility, to the extent that ASIMO can now move carts and other objects around at will. And, with a newly developed total control system that controls all of ASIMO’s functions, ASIMO can autonomously act as a receptionist, or even deliver drinks on a tray. The New ASIMO is also more agile than before, being able to run at 6km/h, and even turn whilst running.

Major Features
Receptionist tasks

ASIMO is now capable of performing tasks as a receptionist or information guide automatically in concert with the movement of people. ASIMO now has the ability to recognize the surrounding environment through visual sensors, floor surface sensor, ultrasonic sensor, and by an IC Tele-interaction Communication Card, developed independently by Honda, held by the person with whom ASIMO will interact. Head-mounted eye camera and force (kinesthetic) sensor-equipped wrists allow ASIMO to give and receive an object such as a tray in a timely manner, or even to hold the hand of a person and move in sync.
Carrying objects
ASIMO is now capable of handling a cart freely while maintaining an appropriate distance from the cart by adjusting the force of its right and left arms to push a cart using the force (kinesthetic) sensor on its wrists. Even when the movement of the cart is disturbed, ASIMO can continue maneuvering by taking flexible actions such as slowing down or changing directions.
Improved mobility
Normal walking speed:2.7km/hour (previous model: 2.5km/hour)Walking speed while carrying objects:1.6km/hour(based on carrying object: weighing 1kg)Running speed:6km/hourSpeed of running in a circular pattern:5km/hour (2.5m radius)
