  5. Today, September 21, marks 49 years after former President and dictator Ferdinand Marcos signed Proclamation 1081, effectively declaring martial law in the Philippines. This began a period of authoritarian rule, marked by the death of press freedom, widespread human rights violations, and plunder. Despite these transgressions being widely recorded, myths about Martial Law continue to perpetuate, tarnishing the memory of those who have suffered under the period, and distorting the truths about how the country has suffered during this dark regime.

    Nope. I Believe Madden would have let Snake try to make a first down before sending Ray out. Ray Guy is legend.

    Playing For Change (PFC)

    We released "Higher Ground" on our PFC 2 Songs Around The World album but decided to revamp it for our Peace Through Music event last year. For this 2020 version, we added r&b vocalist Aloe Blacc, world-renowned percussionist Sheila E., blues vocalist Shemekia Copeland, soul folk duo The War and Treaty, banjo greats Bela Fleck and Silkroad's Rhiannon Giddens, and pedal steel guitarist Robert Randolph. We must never stop trying to be better than we were yesterday and the day before. Join us along with more than 20 musicians from seven countries for this Stevie Wonder classic and let'

  14. I'm posting this video as it points out the "situation" in Australia from another Nations/Doctor's point of view regarding Ivermectin.I used to follow this Doctor in the EARLY days of Covide so he often pops up in my YouTube recommended. No further comments from me...
  15. Yesterday
  16. Vaguely. Neoteric love elegies in Latin. Read a lot of Catullus. And I picked up ancient Greek and did Thucydides. Something about Etruscan archeology too if I recall correctly. All of this was invaluable life preparation for selling pizza on a tropical island in the developing world.

    Movie's with car chases

    I know, but which one
  18. Yes, however they recently announced that they may reduce the original visa-free entry back to 30 days sometime soon. Anything (or nothing) could happen here. You can extend for an additional 30 days once you are in the country. They have also had 60 day covid extensions going for more than a year. They usually continue the extensions just as the previous authorization is running out. Of course, one day, they just won't do the last minute continuation of the policy....

    My Favorite Filipino TV Show

    Similar situation in our house. When the kids still lived at home they were to busy at school to bother with TV. Out the door at 5.15am and then home at 6.15 to study till god knows what hour. Their choice! I sometimes watched eat bulaga when no one was home so I could have a wee ogle at Rochelle.

    How to Grieve for a Very Good Dog

    I would take the old dog to the rescue and swap it for a new one. No need for any drama.

      Today, September 21, marks 49 years after former President and dictator Ferdinand Marcos signed Proclamation 1081, effectively declaring martial law in the Philippines. This began a period of authoritarian rule, marked by the death of press freedom, widespread human rights violations, and plunder. Despite these transgressions being widely recorded, myths about Martial Law continue to perpetuate, tarnishing the memory of those who have suffered under the period, and distorting the truths about how the country has suffered during this dark regime. Read: The internet is fuming at Toni Gonzaga’s interview with Bongbong Marcos Here, a quick reminder of how bad martial law was during the time. Under martial law, 70,000 were detained, 34,000 were tortured, and 3,240 were killed by the military and police. These figures from Amnesty International show that the regime was rife with human rights violations: including 70,000 incarcerations (many of them warrantless due to the writ of habeas corpus being suspended); 34,000 documented tortures; over 3,200 extrajudicial killings; and 77 disappearances. The UP Institute of Human Rights posted a compilation of quotes from Supreme Court cases related to martial law and the Marcos dictatorship that dealt with many of these violations. 6 out of 10 Filipinos were poor during martial law. Contrary to revisionists’ claim that the Philippines was in its “golden age” during the time, poverty became more widespread under Marcos. When Marcos took office, 4 out of 10 Filipinos were poor; this number rose to 6 out 10 by the end of his rule, according to the Martial Law Museum. The country’s debt rose to $28.86 billion. Again debunking the myth that the country was in its golden economic years under Marcos, the country’s international debt rose from $0.36 billion in 1961 to $28.26 billion in 1986 — a massive burden that Filipinos continue to pay for to this day. 464 media outlets were closed after martial law was declared. On September 22, 1972, Marcos ordered the military to take over the assets of major media outlets. Six days later, Marcos ordered the Department of National Defense to sequester the facilities of ABS-CBN and ABC. A total of 464 media outlets were closed after the declaration of martial law, according to the Inquirer archives, including church publications. We hope this has refreshed your memory. Today is a good day to pick up a book, hear the stories of the victims during this time, and say #NeverAgain. In case you’re looking for a must-read to enlighten yourself on the truths of the Marcos regime, here is a link to a free and full copy of The Conjugal Dictatorship by Primitivo Mijares. Sociologist Ash Presto (@sosyolohija on Twitter) also tweeted an extensive compilation of other references to check out for your martial law education. https://ph.yahoo.com/news/bad-martial-law-025649704.html
