Wenceslao: Tabogon mayor, Lapu-Lapu City brand

Cebu Headlines - Thu, 07/31/2014 - 22:23

I HAVEN'T been to the northern town of Tabogon for a long while. The last time I went there was several years ago during the burial of veteran newsman Abe Licayan. I therefore had many questions for Mayor Zigfred Duterte when I met him at the baptism of the grandchild of my friend Ramon a few weeks ago. Duterte replaced third termer Eusebio Dungog last year.

Ramon, a veteran organizer, is helping Duterte set up organizations in the town’s barangays through which livelihood projects will be coursed through. He said Duterte has been working to provide services to the barangays including those that are far from the town center.

Seares: Legalizing DAP won’t bring crisis

Cebu Headlines - Thu, 07/31/2014 - 22:20

THE proposed joint resolution of Congress defining the use of savings by the president is a neat move to cut the fetters of the Supreme Court decision striking down DAP.

Congress will just clarify the rules, its proponents say. It will be more like changing the rules laid down in the General Appropriations Act (GAA). The SC said DAP violates GAA and thus offends the Constitution. So, overhaul GAA.

Obenieta: Home is where the harvest is

Cebu Headlines - Thu, 07/31/2014 - 22:17

MONEY may not grow on trees, but it pays to get down and dirty where charity begins.

Bring home the bonus after getting handy with humus. That’s what it took for the American author of Homegrown Tomatoes to burp his heart out. Not boasting, but Todd Heft could have winked and left us green-eyed with envy. “I personally save hundreds of dollars on my food bill every year,” he wrote, “and I eat like a king.”

MANILA, Philippines -- The deadly Ebola virus has reportedly infected some 1,200, mostly in West Africa where it has left at least 670 dead across the region since the start of the year.   The tropical disease also has no known cure, but Health Secretary Enrique Ona said on Thursday, "we should not worry about it."   "At this point, what's important is we're aware there's such a thing and we know the nature of the spread of the virus.

Ng: Fostering startup culture

Cebu Headlines - Thu, 07/31/2014 - 21:23

I ATTENDED a recent meeting with organizers of Geeks on a Beach 2, which is going to be held this August in Movenpick and is already attracting dozens of venture capitalists as well as techies from overseas, including Silicon Valley.

Part of the discussion was on how to promote a startup culture. There were many opinions shared during our talk, but I think one of the key factors is that there are hardly any success stories that people can identify with. People will only start to believe when they see actual people making it.

Napoles lawyer: Luy traveled to Europe, owns flashy cars

Breaking News - Thu, 07/31/2014 - 21:17
MANILA, Philippines --- The lawyer of alleged pork barrel scam mastermind Janet Lim-Napoles said he wants to summon the travel records of principal whistleblower Benhur Luy. Atty. Stephen David said this is because he received reliable information that Luy travelled to Europe even when he was supposedly making a living only as Napoles' entrusted finance officer in JLN Corporation. David questioned where Luy got the money for travel when his mother, another whistleblower Gertrudes Luy, only worked as Napoles' domestic helper. "Magastos ang pag-travel sa Europe. Magastos ang travel abroad. So kung empleyado ka lang, saan ka kumuha ng panggastos (Travelling to Europe is very ex...
