  1. I have been searching for travel and accommodation information for areas with cleaner air than Cebu city had on a recent trip (as some will recognize from my prior threads). I now realize that I may have done things in the wrong order, by first looking for travel arrangements and checking for hotels later, only to find that there may not be any hotels that meet my criteria. I have various (pretty picky) requirements for travel including: cleaner air (a recent addition to my list), a firm bed (sensitive back), reasonable quietness for sleep (light sleeper and have a fatigue condition that requires me to take naps during the day). I have gone to the point of checking hotel pics to ensure that the hotel has split unit AC since those are quieter than window AC units. I'm posting to see if there's a better way to search for what I need. As regards accommodation, I have searched using Tripadvisor, entering location information in the pull-down menu as expected, and entering additional screening/search terms in the search query box at the upper right. I look for hotel reviews that specifically compliment hotels on the bed firmness, or reviews that complain of excessive bed firmness (both are positive from my standpoint). This approach works ok, but can require significant additional reading to look for other features (noise, cleanliness, etc.). If there's a way to conduct to conduct a search for multiple fields (i.e. bed firmness, quietness, cleanliness at the same time, that would be optimal).
  2. If your living out in the province and looking for local news you probably check the internet and in many cases that means Google. In my experience though the best search engines for local news in order are: www.bing.com (much more news coverage) www.yahoo.com www.google.com I am sure there are many more and hope this is helpful.
  3. LinC to the Rescue? Fri 6 Mar 2015 I guess that many of you have been following the "Foreigner and 5 locals go missing on fishing trip in Neg. Oriental" thread on LinC. It's a sad saga in which at least 2 (and probably 4 more - we don't know yet) people lost their lives at sea. At the time of writing, we don't know exactly what happened. The story is shrouded in secrecy and lack of communication. However, what is clear, is that for various reasons, the Search and Rescue (S&R) operation was too little, too late, and it failed to exploit all the local knowledge and resources that were available to it. ..................................................................................................................................................................... This kind of life threatening emergency is going to happen again - at sea, on land, somewhere in the Phils, sometime! Just from reading the above thread, it is obvious that LinC members have an enormous pool of local knowledge, general knowledge, logical thought, smarts, connections, financial and material resources, enthusiasm, care-for-fellow-man and are not inhibited by a need to guard their job, corruption, superstition or a host of other negatives. That's a powerful resource that could do a lot of good! - Quicker and more effective than the government's likely efforts? Is there a role for LinC in dealing with this kind of emergency situation in future? - If so, it needs to be organised/exercised in advance. .................................................................................................................................................................... So, My primary question is:- Is there a role for LinC in dealing with this kind of emergency situation in future? And what are the Pros and Cons of getting organised and getting involved in S&R (and maybe other emergency) response?
