DESMUND Tutu’s view to the advent of Christianity: “When the missionaries came to Africa they had the Bible and we had the land. They said ‘Let us pray.’ We closed our eyes. When we opened them we had the Bible and they had the land.”

On the 500th year celebration of Christianity in the Philippines, President Duterte said: “Why would I celebrate the arrival of Spanish colonizers here? ...why would I?” But Mgr Pablo Virgilio Siongco David said: “What the Filipino Church will celebrate in 2021 is not colonialism but 500 years of Christian faith, which ‘the natives of these islands welcomed as a gift, albeit from people who were not necessarily motivated by the purest of motives.’”

While viewing the president in a national television, for the first time he delivered his speech, not much punctuated with “P_%@#& !n@”. The issue however was artless; he dressed down someone who is “aspiring” for the country’s top post by 2022. Good timbers are Senators Ping and Cynthia, and of course Mayor Sara.

African Swine Fever (ASF) was an outbreak in China on August 2018 and spread to Cambodia, Mongolia, Vietnam, Laos, Myanmar and North Korea. Authorities confirmed the virus entered the country, either by the smuggled frozen meat or stemmed from the backyard hog raisers that fed their pigs with leftover foods from the hotels and restaurant. Pigs with ASF are safe for human consumption, but leftovers of humans are not safe for pigs.

The management of NCCC is not as negligent as many thinks. Remember NCCC mall? It was one of the most shopper-friendly malls (ambiance and price) and safest, based on the inspection report of the BFP in the early part of 2000. The employees of the former Victoria are just caprice and whimsical to the new management, knowing their demands can always be provided. Take note, days from now NCCC-Victoria will vindicate her name!

Make every Day A Way of change (Madayaw) is a restorative approach of internal cleansing in the police ranks of PRO-XI where the 19 commissioned and 31 non-commissioned officers are undergoing a 30-day Police Reformation and Enhancement of Skill. They will go back to their respective assignments with new haircuts (knowledge) and shined shoes (discipline) as policemen. Magpakadayaw da kamo sirs amo!
