Do not catch migrating birds

by Bong Pedalino

Do not catch migrating birds, and don't even dare eat them, for they may be carrying the avian flu virus.

This was the warning aired by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) as it expected the surge in the arrival of these flocks of birds in flight looking for warmer places from their cool environments from the United States, China, and Australia.

Provincial Environment and Natural Resources Officer (PENRO) Ricardo Tomol issued the alert yesterday during a gathering of heads of government agencies at the office of Rep. Roger Mercado, saying that these birds may reach Olango Island in Cebu and later fly to the mangrove areas in the city and the province as soon as they get overpopulated in the said island.

Tomol feared children roaming around the mangrove habitat areas may be tempted to shot these passing birds with slingshots, and cooked those they may catch for dinner.

Jonas Brothers Makes Charice Pempengco Music Video

Na-release na nga ang music video ni Charice na One Day sa ilalim ng AOLMusic.
Nai-tweet na ni Charice ito at sinabing excited na siyang magawa ang kanyang latest
music video na ang song ay sinulat ni Nick Jonas ng pamosong group ng Jonas Brothers.
Sobrang tuwa nga si Charice dahil pumayag si Nick na isulat siya ng isang kanta na
akmang-akma sa kanyang personality na dumaan sa maraming pagsubok at panlalait bago niya
marating ang kanyang kinalalagyan ngayon.
"Being a teenager as well, I can totally relate to them and I want them to realize that they
shouldn't listen to anybody, just be proud of yourself, be confident and nobody's gonna bring
you down. You just have to go for it, you just have to do it," sey pa ni Charice sa isang behind-
the-scene interview during the shoot of One Day.
Ipinagmamalaki ni Nick na nagkaroon siya ng chance na makatrabaho ang Pinay teen na
noon pa niya nababalitaan ay isang talented na singer from the Philippines. Bilib nga si Nick sa
Filipino talent dahil nakatrabaho na niya si Lea Salonga sa anniversary ng Les Miserables sa
London kamakailan.
"What I really love about her is the fact that she is just normal girl and she really shines
because of her vocal talent."
"I was so blessed to be able to produce her vocal because she is so talented in that
respect. It's amazing to see this big voice come out of her, especially on the song we did,
because it really does require a really vocal talent ad she really did a great job," sabi pa ng
American singer.

Consumer Protection Law in the Philippines

by Stacey Baird
House of Representatives recently passed a New Car Lemon Law. The Lemon Law provides, in part, that new cars with factory defects can be returned for replacement or a full refund, including incidentals such as title and license registration fees.
Have you had bad experiences with a subdivision?  Bad experiences that turned out as a geohazard or flood zone or did not provide the PROMISED amenities such as drainage, roads, water supply, swimming pool, telephone or cable or other things?
If you are living in Davao City, or at least a Filipino, what would you say about a Consumer Protection law /  SUBDIVISION LEMON LAW  to protect consumers from Developers who build subdivisions in areas subject to Landslide and Flooding or do not keep promises?
1) Would a Lemon Law requiring Refund or other penalties be a good thing?
2) Could it help discipline and punish erring developers?
VOTE: Would you LIKE such a Consumer Protection / Lemon law?
