Cory Aquino on Time Magazine

Corazon Aquino 1933-2009: The Saint of Democracy By Hannah Beech It shouldn’t have been surprising, really, that the world’s most populous continent would give birth to a movement called People Power. In 1986, a housewife from the Philippines whose given name meant “heart” gave lifeblood to her wounded nation. The only weapon she possessed was moral courage. But with it she discovered a groundbreaking truth: that a populace holding nothing more than candles and rosary beads could face a cavalcade of tanks, topple a dictator and, most improbable of all, usher in democracy. By the time Corazon Aquino died on Aug. 1 of colon cancer at the age of 76, People Power was so ingrained in our political consciousness that it acquired a patina of tired normalcy that hid its exceptional innovation, like electricity, say, or suitcases with wheels. Yet when Aquino led a sea of yellow-clad supporters to reclaim an election that had been stolen by strongman Ferdinand Marcos, not even the clearest-eyed political sage could have predicted that her actions would be the first crest in wave after wave of citizen-led, nonviolent movements that would reshape the world. Within a few years of People Power in the Philippines, …
 

Corazon Aquino, former Philippines president, dead at 76

The death of our beloved President Cory Aquino leaves a mark of a true spiritual icon and mother for all of us. AP: Corazon Aquino, Philippines president, dead at 76 By HRVOJE HRANJSKI, Associated Press Writer   MANILA, Philippines – Former President Corazon Aquino, who swept away a dictator with a “people power” revolt and then sustained democracy by fighting off seven coup attempts in six years, died on Saturday, her son said. She was 76. The uprising she led in 1986 ended the repressive 20-year regime of Ferdinand Marcos and inspired nonviolent protests across the globe, including those that ended Communist rule in eastern Europe.   But she struggled in office to meet high public expectations. Her land redistribution program fell short of ending economic domination by the landed elite, including her own family. Her leadership, especially in social and economic reform, was often indecisive, leaving many of her closest allies disillusioned by the end of her term. …

Forbes: Pacquiao world’s 6th highest-paid athlete

MANILA, Philippines – Filipino boxing icon Manny Pacquiao made it to Forbes magazine’s list of highest-paid athletes in the world, tying for the sixth spot with basketball phenom Lebron James and golfer Phil Mickelson.   According to Forbes, Pacquiao is the highest-ranking among four newcomers to the list, raking in a total of $40 million in the past 12 months. The boxing star is among the eight non-Americans on the list, which had golf icon Tiger Woods ($110 million) at the top.   “Pac-Man hogged the boxing spotlight over the past year with victories in two blockbuster fights against Oscar De La Hoya in December and Ricky Hatton in May that combined for more than $100 million in pay-per-view revenue in the US,” Forbes said in a brief write-up.   “The two blockbuster fights garnered more than 2 million pay-per-view buys in the US and earned Pac-Man $30 million combined.”   The reputable business magazine cited the General Santos City-based southpaw’s endorsements with giant firms.   “Pacquiao’s massive popularity in his native Philippines is why companies like Nike and San Miguel beer have signed him to endorse their products.

Hayden Kho and Katrina Halili Scandal Post

Sorry to disappoint you but this entry will not provide you the video scandal you are looking for. I created this post to show support for Katrina Halili (some of my friends asked me to create a post about this and I’m glad to write something about the support). If you have the scandal, stop spreading it and just delete it. I’m a fan. Her Tanduay 2007 Calendar is still attached at the back of my door and I used to comment with her photos in an online community site for travelling.   Instead of hunting petty stuffs in the cyber web why don’t you just look for some interesting things to do on the web?   Click here for some tips.
