Ban of Smoking in All Public Places, Executive Order 26

Monday, July 17, 2017

It seems that places where smokers can do their thing is becoming smaller and smaller because President Rodrigo Duterte signed the Executive Order No. 26 banning smoking in all public places and prohibiting cigarette consumption by minors. The order was signed May 16 and according to the document the order will take effect 60 days after its publication. So it will probably start by next Saturday.

In this Executive Order No. 26, smoking is already prohibited in enclosed public places and public utility vehicles regardless if they are moving or stationary and is allowed only in designated smoking area. So, meaning there will be a designated smoking area. Thank goodness because all non-smokers would be happy and enjoying the freshness of the air, if it is still fresh.

So under this executive order there are so many "don'ts" that already exists in some of the earlier orders for the wellness of the people who does not enjoy the lingering smell of cigarette smoke. We don't have to get more into details about that but for the benefit of the people who want to know it more you can visit this link http://www.officialgazette.gov.ph/downloads/2017/05may/20170516-EO-26-RRD.pdf to read the whole document.

A few days from now the EO No. 26 will take effect and is required to be followed by everyone under the Philippine Flag. But there's still a question of the extent of government control over the individuals. Not everyone will be policed about their smoking habits, so who or how will this executive order be implemented properly? It seems that there will be a very big whole to fill in with this order.

This will take long before it I truly and fully implemented.

How about you what are your thoughts about Executive Order 26?

Grab and Uber Some of the Causes of Traffic in the Philippines

Wednesday, July 12, 2017

In the rise of the heated talks about Grab, Uber and LTFRB regarding the idea of fining of amounting to millions, I just came to a realization. At first it didn't crossed to my mind but lately with the increase of problem with traffic, I realized that Grab and Uber became one of the causes of heavy traffic.

I'm also a user of Grab and Uber user I definitely know the conditions of this cars. Yup, most of these cars are brand new.

Here are my realization why Grab and Uber in the Philippines became one of the reasons why traffic became worse.

1. Theoretically Grab and Uber operators are supposed to be existing owners of vehicles to be used as alternative means of public transport but practically Grab and Uber became the reasons to buy more cars.

2. Because of the testimonies of Grab and Uber drivers and operators on how they profit  from it, many individuals bought brand new cars for use in Grab or Uber.

3. Remember that when Grab and Uber became known traffic just worsen.

4. I'm not sure which is which, the cost of vehicles lower because of the potential business with Grab or Uber operators or the rise of Uber and Grab made vehicle companies to lower their cost. Either which vehicle sale scaled up.

So, is my analization makes sense or not?

Whatever nay be the cause of the traffic perhaps it is high time for the government to take this seriously. Move, act and do things for the country not for the wallet. Travel time of 5 to 6 hours a day to and from is nit economically healthy.

If you've heard the phrase "toys for the big boys", well, this one is truly for the big boys. Not only that this is played by grown ups, but also maintaining it is costly. This is not your typical toys in the toy shop. What's more interesting is how it was developed and made into a sports out of being a hobby. The birth of an exquisite adult sports entertainment.

Who would have thought that the idea would be materialized and become the first drone flying sports. Thus, giving to the birth of Game of Drones which showcased its first flight at Circulo Verde.

We all know that Circulo Verde just launched its first signature pump track and bike playground here in the Philippines. And with that area great for outdoor activities, the revitalized industry player introduced yet another signature event which captured the imagination of millennials and kids of all ages. Everyone present at Circulo Verde looked skyward and witnessed a spectacle of lights and drone feats- The grandest yet - Game of Drones 1st Flight.

Circulo Verde, Ortigas & Co.'s 10 hectare master planned mixed use community in Quezon city was set aglow with the spectacular sight of drones flipping in the air. After dusk, the place was ablaze with lights coming from the lit tracks where the quadcopters coursed through,prompting spectators to squeal in delight & excitement.

Circulo Verde oferred the perfect venue for Game of Drones 1st Flight where drone professionals, hobbyists & amateurs had the whole day for themselves to race - and learn a few tricks using the remote-controlled aircrafts.

The games were open to two drone categories: the Spec Class or Beginners for pilots using a quadcopter with 35 LiPo and 5" diameter props and Open Class or Advance for pilots with quadcopters that weighed a maximum of 50 lbs. The Game Arena was divided into several areas with different races for drone controllers, namely Time Trial, Drone Sprint, Rotocross, and Drone Photography.

But Game of Drones was not exclusively for drone enthusiasts. The country's biggest and grandest drone spectacle also enticed families and friends to bond over raffles and other activities while served with first-class entertainment throughout the jampacked one-day event. Everyone from kids and teens to adults also took advantage of food booths and other stalls that sold sports apparel from sponsors and concessionaires.
