VACCINE POLITICS in the Philippines. Part 2. The hearing conducted by the Senate of the Philippines concerning the government's vaccination program seems to indicate that China is not fair in its dealing. Aside from the low quality of its vaccines, its manufacturers have not yet officially presented the result of its alleged test conducted as to the efficacy of its vaccines, despite its more than a billion citizen. It also appears that the Philippine government shall shoulder the expenses to conduct the tests for the initial batch of Chinese vaccine that will be delivered tot he country. Moreover, as to who is the official representatives of Chinese made vaccines in the Philippines remains a mystery. Finally, it is more expensive. Senator Panfilo Ping Lacson was right in his observation, when he said, there was an attempt by some government officials to take dip into the vaccination program involving BILLIONS of pesos. Another Dengue Vaccine Fiasco?
VACCINE POLITICS in the Philippines. Part 1. Verified news report show that the Presidential Security Group of Philippine President Rodrigo Roa Duterte were inoculated and vaccinated as early as September 2020. All accounts seems to indicate that they were injected with vaccines made from China. Neither the Department of National Defense, Department of Health nor other concerned government agencies were aware thereof. Where and how the vaccine reach the country remains a mystery. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ju-SqTcRJUo&feature=share&fbclid=IwAR19EQLB7Ht2CBJwAvSXzu8moQBsGYwHJvt3KVchVYlhl0LLT9yKv-GZnt0
[FROM POSITIVELY FILIPINO] Memories of Fil-Am Life on the Farms and in the Canneries of the West Coast Webinar There have been many stories written about the manongs who provided the hard labor on farms all over the West Coast and in the canneries of Alaska. Carlos Bulosan’s America Is in the Heart vividly captures the drama, pathos, struggles, and the little triumphs of the first wave of Filipino immigrants. But how was it for the younger generation of workers who worked on the farms at a time of labor unrest, and in the canneries of Alaska where the labor force was bolstered by students recruited for summer work? Two of the Fil-Am community’s prolific storytellers (Alex Fabros, Jr. and Oscar Peñaranda) take us on a ride back to the time they themselves were working on the farms and in the canneries.

CHINA, A BULLY WHICH CANNOT EVEN ENFORCE ITS CLAIM AGAINST TAIWAN HISTORICALLY A PART OF CHINA. If China is bent on occupying the territories of its neighboring countries, it should have started with Taiwan. How can China earn the respect of others when China itself cannot even enforce its sovereignty to a part of a territory, which historically belongs to China? It is high time for ASEAN countries to make its stand for its recovery effort from this pandemic which originated in Wuhan. The same as what is happening at WHO, the issue is about the survival and speedy economic recovery of countries affected by COVID 19. The world has already enough of CHINA's aristocratic bully diplomacy. [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IZcG9jy0TWQ](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IZcG9jy0TWQ)
What determines the low price of air tickets? Price primarily depends on the day of the flight, the closer it is, the higher the price will be, therefore, if you want cheap, book in advance. Planning a trip with families ... the more tickets the lower the price. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.cheapairlinetickets
Sen. Ling Ling Chang Fights for California's Newspapers & Freelance Journalists SACRAMENTO - Senator Ling Ling Chang (R-Diamond Bar) announced she has co-authored two bills to help newspapers and freelance journalists operate in California by exempting them from Assembly Bill 5, the state's new anti-independent contracting law. "AB 5 is creating a mess and punishing independent contractors," said Senator Chang. "Instead of micromanaging the labor market, we need to reform AB 5 and help California's newspapers and journalists operate normally. We have to fight for our hardworking individuals if we want to keep a diverse and dynamic economy." Senate Bills 867 and 868, coauthored by Senator Chang and introduced by Senator Pat Bates, address separately the concerns of newspapers and freelance journalists. Both bills are currently pending referral to Senate policy committees. Senate Bill 867 SB 867 would permanently exempt newspaper distributors and carriers from AB 5. Newspaper publishers argue that AB 5 would eviscerate the newspaper industry because it relies on the independent contractor model to distribute newspapers. Left unfixed, AB 5 could lead to the closing of many local papers by saddling them with additional and unaffordable costs. Senate Bill 868 SB 868 would exempt freelance journalists from AB 5, which limits freelance journalists to just 35 stories a year if they wish to remain an independent contractor. This arbitrary limit severely affects freelance journalists. Vox Media, which owns SB Nation, has ended contracts with about 200 California sports writers thanks to AB 5. Only 20 people are becoming part-time or full-time staffers for the sports site. AB 5 codifies and applies retroactively the 2018 California Supreme Court's landmark decision in Dynamex Operations W. v. Superior Court, which prohibits independent contracting unless very restrictive conditions are met. This has jeopardized the livelihoods of many Californians who argue that the new law does not account for their unique working conditions and their desire to be independent. In 2019 Senator Chang voted against AB 5 and co-authored Senate Bill 238, which would have allowed Californians to remain as independent contractors if they so desired. Unfortunately, the Senate Labor Committee blocked SB 238 on a partisan vote.
