MANILA - Sen. Panfilo Lacson rejected Wednesday President Rodrigo Duterte's remark that the lawmaker is "trying to be a crusader but [is] ignorant." Duterte made the remark Tuesday in reaction to how the senator and Vice President Leni Robredo criticized him for saying that police officers should accept gifts if these are given out of gratitude or generosity. "Is this not graft Mr. President? Pray tell, who is ignorant?," Lacson said in a Twitter post that also shared an article about Duterte's stand on gifts. CSC urges gov't workers to decline gifts The senator also said the President "was exaggerating when he said that I have the penchant to comment on every issue." "Aside from from my Twitter posts, I only comment on issues when asked, and not even all the time. I play 'dedma' when I am not familiar with the issue," he said in a statement. "I may not be a lawyer but I know how to read and understand the law that I read, or ask my lawyer-staff when I don't." Duterte was earlier … [Read more...] about Lacson tells Duterte: ‘Pray tell who is ignorant?’

Ryan Cayabyab is known by many names: National Artist for Music, Ramon Magsaysay Awardee, Maestro and The Music Man. The name most often used for him, however, is Mr. C, and it fits him to a T — simple and sincere but indicative of respect, admiration and affection. So who is this Mr. C? He is as an extraordinary musician, composer, arranger, songwriter, conductor and musical mentor whose exemplary achievements were never part of his plan. In fact, Mr. C admits that, “The theme of my life is that I never plan and I never dream. Siyempre, I know what I want to do, but planning is not something I do consciously. The dreams and ideas are there inside me or floating around like a cloud above my head. Then, something or someone becomes a catalyst that shows what’s next and it’s like this door opens and these ideas just fall into my lap.” And there have been many such catalysts in his life. The first was his mother, Celerina Venson Pujante, who gave him his very … [Read more...] about Who is Mr. C?

Who is to say what’s really wrong? STRENGTH FOR TODAY - Dr. Harold J. Sala (The Philippine Star) - August 18, 2019 - 12:00am A lifestyle choice widely embraced by many in society today is a do-it-if-it-feels-good sort of morality. It has been fostered by the existentialists who deny that there are absolutes in our world, or clearly defined morals. Nothing is right or wrong in itself, so the person does whatever seems right at the moment. Truth is subjective. It’s the I’m-OK-you’re-OK-too mentality.
