Another Silent Christmas Eve in Davao City


Christmas is all about celebrating and having fun with your loved ones. Part of this celebration is having parties, drinks and FIRECRACKERS.

Here in Davao City, any form of firecrackers is banned. Once you have been caught, you will eventually be imprisoned for quite some time. It has been ten years since the implementation of this policy. Because of this ban, it has saved hundreds of people and property. It has also saved civilians from losing their fingers and their eyesight, among others.

The ban is not limited only to Christmas and New Year. Firecrackers and other pyrotechnic devices are banned as well in the celebration of the Chinese New Year and the Muslims’ Eid’l Fitr.

Ordinance 060-02 penalizes:
  • first offenders with a fine of P1,000 or imprisonment of 20 to 30 days, or both;
  • second offenders with a fine of P3,000 or imprisonment of from one to three months or both;
  • and third offenders, a fine of P5,000 or imprisonment of from three to six months, or both
Davao City is not totally against Christmas celebration. In fact, the city government installed several speakers in the Downtown area specifically in San Pedro Street to play Christmas songs. A Christmas light float parade was also held.

This year is another SILENT NIGHT Christmas Eve in Davao City. I still prefer celebrating the holidays without firecrackers. You will really feel the essence of Christmas in your hearts.

Merry Christmas everyone.

List of Mage Characters in Online RPG

When I was still young, I am fond of playing online role-playing games like Ragnarok. The character that I always choose is the Mage (Magician, Wizard, Sorcerer) character or someone that uses magic. Why? Since then, I always like MAGIC! So role-playing a mage, would somewhat make me powerful in magic. Anyways, here are some of the list of mage characters in massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG):

1. Mage and Wizard in Ragnarok


In Ragnarok, Mage or Magicians who acquire enough experience in magic are given the choice of becoming a Wizard which are powerful spell-casters and have access to a wide array of area of effect spells

2. Magician in Flyff
Magician is a job class that involves dealing magical damage from a distance by casting spells. You will learn spells as skills, and be able to use them to deal massive damage to monsters. You will also have lower defense, lower HP, and a delay time in casting spells, but you will ultimately be casting massively damaging spells if you do it right. As a Magician you'll be using staffs and wands to cast magic spells. You may also wear light armor. A useful stat for a Magician is Int. (Intelligence), which will increase your magic attack power, and maximum MP.

3. Mage in World of Warcraft

Students gifted with a keen intellect and unwavering discipline may walk the path of the mage. The arcane magic available to magi is both great and dangerous, and thus is revealed only to the most devoted practitioners.

4. Mage in GodsWar Online

The Mage is just like a Champion only the mage focusses on Magical attack, also the attacks aren't just as high as a Champion but his huge amount of skills is a good point of advantage wich champions don't have. they also focus on far distance fights not on close distance what gives them a advantage, but just like the champion, they don't have a good armor and will be killed fast if they are frozen or stunned. also close distance fight isn't a good choice if you're a mage, in the beginning you will just do 1 damage per hit.

Anthony Taberna: Against the "Third Sex"?

I saw and read this post from the Missosology forum. I was amazed by the braveness of the one who post it. The post is about a commentary or opinion of what Mr. Anthy Taberna just talked about the SM Pamapanga in Umagang Kay Ganda.

Here it goes:


An Open Letter to Anthony Taberna

+7

Postby TALA » Thu Sep 22, 2011 6:00 pm


Dear Mr. Taberna,

Last Thursday, on your show "Umagang Kay Ganda," you made the following comments on the death of two minors involved in a shooting in Pampanga City:

"May mga nagsasabi din sa atin...kung bakit ang bata ay humahantong sa ganito kaagang gulang ay nabibilad na po sa pakikipagkaibigan o umiibig sa kapwa lalaki lalo't ito'y bading pala, o nabubuo na yung ganong pagkatao niya. Eh meron pong nagsabi na mga taga telebisyon din ang may kasalanan niyan eh. Ang media daw ang may kasalanan dahil pagbukas mo pa lang ng telebisyon eh puro kami na nakikita niyo. Ibig sabihin, puro -pasensya na po sa termino- puro kabaklaan na raw po nakikita. Pag bukas mo ng telebisyon, pagbukas mo ng online - ng social networking, pinapahintulutan at tinatanggap na ng publiko...so siguro puede rin na...wake up call din po ito. Hindi po para siilin ang karapatan ng mga nasa third sex na magagaling naman talaga pagdating sa mga performance at iba pa. Pero mukhang na-e-engangyo po ang marami na maaga pa ay i-flaunt na yung kanila pong kabaklaan."

("I have been told that the reason that (male) children this young are already exposed to making friends with or being in love with other (male) children is...it is also the fault of TV. They say it is also the fault of media because the moment you turn on the TV, -sorry for the term- all you see are gay things. When you turn on the TV, when you log on to online - social networking, it (homosexuality) is allowed and accepted by the public. So perhaps this is a wake up call. I don't mean to take away the rights of the third sex, who are also good when it comes to performances and other things. But it seems a lot are encouraged to flaunt their gayness at a very early age.") http://www.pinoypride.net/video/136293/ ... -Sep-22-P3

I would like to dissect your commentary and tell you first hand, as a self-identifying gay man, why your commentary reflects a perspective that needs much re-education on "gay things." Let me begin by saying that the shooting incident had very little to do with the gender of the two victims. Meaning to say, it could have happened to any other straight couple. That is why I am still wondering where your comment is coming from seeing that the focus of the segment was the lack of security of the mall and the lack of guidance from the side of the victims' parents. In fact, the gender of the victims only became the topic when you deliberately inserted this angle.

"May mga nagsasabi din sa atin...kung bakit ang bata ay humahantong sa ganito kaagang gulang ay nabibilad na po sa pakikipagkaibigan o umiibig sa kapwa lalaki lalo't ito'y bading pala, o nabubuo na yung ganong pagkatao niya. Eh meron pong nagsabi na mga taga telebisyon din ang may kasalanan niyan eh. Ang media daw ang may kasalanan dahil pagbukas mo pa lang ng telebisyon eh puro kami na nakikita niyo. Ibig sabihin, puro -pasensya na po sa termino- puro kabaklaan na raw po nakikita.

("I have been told that the reason that (male) children this young are already exposed to making friends with or being in love with other (male) children is...it is also the fault of TV. They say it is also the fault of media because the moment you turn on the TV, -sorry for the term- all you see are gay things.")

First of all, I wonder why you find issue in how early children discover their sexual orientation and gender identity. Are you implying that there is a prescribed age for us (you and I included) to express ourselves? If so, how early is too early and when is the right time? Second of all, if TV shows gay things, why is that a bad thing? It is only bad if the portrayal is based on negative stereotypes. But if mass media are able to show the diversity of gender in all its forms, that is definitely a good thing. And third, even if the media stopped showing heterosexual things, it cannot make all viewers gay. Being gay does not come from a rectangular contraption. It is more complicated than that.

"Pag bukas mo ng telebisyon, pagbukas mo ng online - ng social networking, pinapahintulutan at tinatanggap na ng publiko" ("When you turn on the TV, when you log on to online - social networking, it (homosexuality) is allowed and accepted by the public").

So are you implying that the public should not allow and accept homosexuality? I was actually glad that most major media outfits did not focus on the gender of the two victims. The question of their sexuality was only secondary to the real questions at hand - how they got through the security guards and how they got hold of a gun. I actually thought we'd made a lot of headway with the media as far as LGBT activism was concerned, until you made your thoughts public.

"Hindi po para siilin ang karapatan ng mga nasa third sex na magagaling naman talaga pagdating sa mga performance at iba pa." ("I don't mean to take away the rights of the third sex, who are also good when it comes to performances and other things.")

Thank you for the compliment, if it is such. But actually, by calling us "third sex" and perpetuating the stereotype that gays are good when it comes to "performances and other things," you have already discriminated against us and have already taken away our rights. Take my word for it Mr. Taberna, do not use the terminology "third sex." Also, I would advise you to open your mind and realize that we are not limited to "performances and other things." My partner, for example, is a university instructor who is currently a PhD Math candidate. Yes, we are capable of a wide variety of things aside from "performances."

"mukhang na-e-engangyo po ang marami na maaga pa ay i-flaunt na yung kanila pong kabaklaan." ("it seems a lot are encouraged to flaunt their gayness at a very early age.")

I see nothing wrong with flaunting "gayness" the same way that I don't see anything wrong with flaunting "straightness." You said so yourself that you do not mean to take away the rights of the "third sex." If you mean what you say, then you should not take away children's right to express their identity, i.e., to flaunt whatever they want to flaunt. I hope I make it clear that I am not attacking you personally. I am merely engaging you in meaningful discussion to help you understand what we are fighting for and the important role you and the media play in LGBT activism.

Happy and gay,
Ron de Vera

August 29 and 30, 2011 is a Regular Holiday


There is another reason to celebrate for the month of August. This is because of the two special days on the last week of this month.

August 29 is a regular holiday in celebration of National Heroes day.
August 30 is also a holiday celebrating Eid ul-Fitr which is a conclusion of the Ramadan of Muslims.

National Heroes Day day is dedicated to the memory of the Philippine heroes all throughout history of our nation. It is observed every last Monday of August. It is a regular holiday marking the Cry of Pugad Lawin by Filipino Revolutionary forces called the Katipunan led by its Supremo Andres Bonifacio.

Eid ul-Fitr. The first day of Shawwal, the tenth month of the Islamic calendar, is declared a national holiday for the observance of Eid ul-Fitr, or the Feast of Breaking the Fast (of Ramadhan, the ninth month). The law was enacted in deference to the Filipino Muslim community and to promote peace among the major religions in the Philippines.

Well here is the question that you might find amusing to answer. What will be your activities on this upcoming regular holidays?
