We all live in a world that is very interconnected. An issue that affects one part of the world is almost certain to effect another part of the world in some way, albeit not as severely. Issues affecting the environment are the most severe of these because of their far-reaching and severe long lasting affects. Pollution caused by industrial sources and transportation contribute heavily to air pollution, which is linked to global climate change through the emission of Greenhouse Gas...

I took these photos last year on January 16. These photos were included for my photo-documentary entitled "NoyPi", which is obviously my title for this article. My center point in my documentary is poverty, but it seems ironic in some pictures because some people involved were smiling when I took photos of them. It's nice to see my fellow country men still have those beautiful smiles although they experience poverty. Therefore, I should say, they don't suffer from poverty, th...

Do you use your eyes wisely? – There is a large variety of perspectives, which one of them is yours? People, especially nation leaders, could answer this question immediately; carefully evaluating its connotation, they could express their answers to such impressive and inspiring words. I am amazed how they could draw directly to their very points towards the so- called “awareness” as their expected answers. Although there are billions of global citizens and leaders who are in...

The Philippines has suffered from an inexhaustible number of deadly typhoons, earthquakes, volcano eruptions and other natural disasters. This is due to its location along the Ring of Fire, or typhoon belt – a large Pacific Ocean region where many of Earth’s volcanic eruptions and earthquakes occur. Annually, approximately 80 typhoons develop above tropical waters, of which 19 enter the Philippine region and six to nine make landfall, according to the Joint Typhoon Warning Ce...

Without doubt millions of people have been affected by Typhoon Haiyan. Things are getting better and people are getting help. I just wanted to link this tweet by UNICEF on the topic.

The Philippines is currently under the international microscope. After the wake of Typhoon Yolanda (international name Haiyan), my country has been on the receiving end of the world’s generosity and kindness. Nations that most Filipinos have never even visited before have given millions of dollars in relief efforts and goods; some countries have even commissioned their best doctors and volunteers to work directly at ground zero. Let me take this time now to express my grat...

The digital transfer is part of the outline to implement the Geneva Frequency Plan Agr...
