A short documentary film entitled “The Philippines: Preserving a Culture of Life” was recently aired on Eternal Word Television Network (EWTN) in the USA and Canada. Produced by Human Life International (HLI), this film has been aired several times at EWTN in the Philippines.
The film is a pro-life documentary that highlights the fight for life in the Philippines. It features pro-life advocates who are leading the fight against the RH Bill, the likes of Cebu Archbishop Jose Palma, Congressman Golez, HLI Director Bullecer, and former pro-abortion Department of Health manager Dr. Ligaya Acosta.
HLI is presently working with other pro-life organizations in the Philippines to promote the new documentary, groups such as the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) and the Filipinos for Life, a volunteer group whose mission is to speak the truth about the dignity and sanctity of human life in all its stages, from natural conception to natural death.
HLI is also hosting a contest on Facebook where pro-lifers are invited to leave a brief prayer for the Philippines or a note of encouragement for a chance to win a free DVD copy of the documentary.

InterAksyon of TV5 News and the Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA) of the Philippines recently launched a traffic navigator that visually displays major intersections along each of the major thoroughfares of Epifano delos Santos Avenue (EDSA), Quezon Avenue, Espana Avenue, C5, Roxas Boulevard and the South Luzon Express Way (SLEX), and labels each according to a traffic category.
The rendition of the graphics is akin to subway and roadway maps people are familiar worldwide, like the United States, Canada and the U.K. Besides this familiar display, the “Line View” provides intersection per thoroughfare status. It also uses “Google Map” to display an actual view of the major thoroughfare and the traffic situation.
Below the page shows MMDA’s Facebook and Twitter updates.

Senator Miriam Defensor Santiago recently upped the ante on Facebook as a prime medium in Philippine politics when she publicly told her critics and enemies, “Please post all death threats on my Facebook wall.” After that privilege speech, she took a one-day leave of rest in her house for hyperthyroidism.

Okay, Miriam – this is weird. In order to post a death threat on your Facebook wall, one has either got to “LIKE” you, which they don’t, or to request being your “FRIEND,” which goes contrary to what your telling them.
Are we missing something here you know and we don’t?
There are three Miriam Facebook Friend accounts, six Miriam Facebook Pages and Miriam senatorial movement Facebook Group – take you pick! LIKE her first or be her FRIEND before you send your death threats, remember that!

I was doing my thing in Facebook when I noticed this ad on the right that featured a somewhat blurred picture of Lea Salonga.
In my curiosity, I clicked on the ad and landed in a Facebook Fan Page called “Allegiance – A New Musical.” However, clicking on the “Info” tab displayed something weird – “Founded August 2008.” Is this a muscial that’s played a few years ago yet somehow nobody knew about it? Funny, for Lea Salonga to star in it, it couldn’t be an unknown event.
So, I clicked on the website http://www.allegiancemusical.com/ and landed at finally what it was all about.
George Takei? The Star Trek guy? Oh, wow! For someone who loves both the arts and Star Trek, it’s a perfect combination for a musical. Though I should say, it must be a really big musical production in the works as the slated run date starts in 2012 – two years from now!
Lea, now this is intriguingly exciting!
There’s a Facebook Ad you’ll sometimes see that says “Kris Aquino Online,” the daughter of the former Philippine President and late Cory Aquino; Kris also happens to be the current Presidential candidate Noynoy Aquino.
When you click on the ad, it brings you to http://krisaquinoinfo.blogspot.com/ which is titled “Kris Aquino And ABS-CBN Talents Online” with a tag line at the bottom “The Online Showbiz Chika About Kris Aquino.” However, the very first thing you see is a poll question, “Suma Sang-ayon ka ba na Gawing Bayani ng Democrasya Si Tita Cory” with Yes, No or No Comment selection of answers.
Mighty generous of the Kris fan to do this, eh? Or is it a fan? In this time of day nearing the national and presidential elections in the Philippines, one wonders what any of these mean.
After thousands (if not millions) of messages by e-mail, Friendster, Facebook and Twitter – to name a few – expanded the literary piece of an American’s question about the importation of books into the Philippines, Gerry Alanguilan, a Filipino comic book writer, artist and publisher, creates a YouTube video interpretation of the ongoing controversy.
