Singko tax on text

In General, Others, Politics on March 26, 2009 at 6:16 AM

They had a very hard time selling the 10 centavos tax on text messaging so they are bringing it down to 5 cents. That’s what  Congress – House of Representatives, thru Congressman Danilo Suarez of Quezon is proposing. 

Suarez said it is up to the companies to decide if they would shoulder half of the 10-centavo tax, but if they won’t, they can pass on only 2.5 centavos to the consumer.

“If the players would like to absorb it, then there is no problem. If they decide to pass it on to subscribers, it can be half-half, two-and-a-half centavos on the player and two-and-a-half centavos on the subscriber,” he said. – Source

Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao uses one of the techniques in Boxing…  jabs then slides. But this time, outside the ring.

In the bruhaha he cause when he announced that he’s pulling out of  Solar Sports and getting a new his media partner, many raised their eyebrows. This would mean that not only solar sports would loose this money earning bout but also GMA7 who has a blocktime agreement with Solar Sports to show the fight.

And the reported new partner was ABS-CBN.

Nicole got Justice

In current events, General, Politics on March 18, 2009 at 11:19 AM

“Nicole,” said she is now conscience-stricken and now doubts if she was really raped by Daniel Smith.

Why Not? With all the pressures both here in the Philippines and from the United States… one would surely be bound to retract any firm statement that was laid down before. Common… its nothing new. We should have seen this happening during the first stages of the trial. Imagine, you going against the entire Philippine governement, the US Military and the US government for that matter.
