8 dead, dozens missing in California boat firehome / News / 8 dead, dozens missing in California boat fireSANTA BARBARA, California: A fire raged through a boat carrying recreational scuba divers anchored near an island off the Southern California coast early Monday, leaving at least eight people dead and hope diminishing that any of the 26 people still missing would be found alive. Five crew members escaped by jumping off the boat and taking refuge on an inflatable boat. Rescuers recovered four bodies from the waters just off Santa Cruz Island and spotted four others on the ocean near where fire-raged boat sank. They were continuing to search for survivors, but Coast Guard Capt. Monica Rochester cautioned that it was unlikely anyone else would be found alive.“We will search all the way through the night into the morning, but I think we should all be prepared to move into the worst outcome,” she told an afternoon news conference. The four bodies plucked from the ocean about … [Read more...] about 8 dead, dozens missing in California boat fire
We need to stop putting China first Despite the fact that many have tried to spin the maritime incident involving Chinese fishing vessel Yuemaobinyu 42212 ramming Filipino fishing boat Gem-Ver 1 near Recto Bank in the West Philippine Sea – the issue still won’t fade into the night. And rightfully so. Even as I commended the president for trying to take a diplomatic tack when it came to addressing the maritime incident with the Chinese, I still think he needs to consider both the Filipinos involved in the sinking and the Philippines in general. First of all – I believe he waited too long before finally making a statement. I understand wanting to get all the facts right before saying anything (something that President Duterte doesn’t normally do actually), but a week to respond to an international incident is far too long. How will Filipinos believe that the president truly has our backs when he makes it seem that a calculated … [Read more...] about We need to stop putting China first
Bangkok has become one of our favorite destinations for obvious reasons: its interesting, preserved heritage sites that speak well of their glorious past, the rich flora and fauna, food and fruits (check out the pungent and buttery kanyao variety of durian; duku langsat or lanzones; atis or sugar apple, pomegranate, guava, dragon fruit) and a personal favorite, crispy banana chips with tamarind paste. There are good buys in weekend markets, while modern retail shops offer a wide variety of products and services. We can’t seem to have enough of it. To sum up our Bangkok experience, I’ll rate from bad (in a good way) to baad (a rip off). Bad: I booked our airport pickup online (Viator for P2,262.39 or US$43.14). The six-passenger van was new, clean and spacious. The driver was polite and experienced. Baad: It took us over 40 minutes to find the van. My name was spelled wrong, making it difficult for me to spot the welcome sign displayed among hundreds of signs. In exhaustion, … [Read more...] about Bad, baad Bangkok!
