Why are Filipinos known for their lack of reading comprehension?

Because according to most of them: "Well-mannered is better than well-educated" That's why most of the Filipinos never progress. It is because of the trash mindset.

EDSA busway takes shape as a dedicated bus lane in MM’s major artery

CALOOCAN CITY, July 19 (PIA) --The EDSA busway is in the process of taking form as a dedicated lane for buses along Metro Manila’s major artery with the scheduled delivery of thousands of concrete barriers in the coming weeks and months, starting today, 18 July 2020.

A joint project of the Department of Transportation (DOTr) and Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) with the Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA) and the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH), the EDSA busway was designed to allow faster travel time for commuters.

In a news release at their Facebook page, DOTr Secretary Arthur Tugade said the continuous development of the EDSA busway shows the DOTr’s committment to provide commuters with an efficient and safe transport mode amid the current health crisis affecting the country.

“Pinabilis natin ‘yung delivery ng mga concrete barriers sapagkat nagsimula na ‘ho tayo ng interim operations. Kinakailangan nating siguraduhin na ligtas at maayos ang ating busway para sa mga commuter. Ayaw nating biguin ang ating mga kababayan lalo ngayon na mas dumarami ang nakikinabang sa benepisyo nito,” the transportation chief said.

In total, the DOTr has procured 36,000 concrete barriers, which will be established to segregate the bus lanes, located on the innermost lanes of EDSA, from the other lanes of the highway.

A total of 9,000 units will be initially delivered from July 18 to 22, 2020, while the other 27,000 units will be delivered in three parts (9,000 units each) every after 15 days thereafter.

As a result of the transparent and efficient procurement process, government was able to save up to Php16.2 million. The barriers were procured at Php4,300 per piece, compared to the Php4,750 per piece approved budget for the contract of the Inter-Agency Technical Working Group, based on the initial quotations submitted by contractors.

Additionally, the agency was able to cut down the expected delivery period from 155 days down to 72 days.

Meanwhile, DOTr Assistant Secretary for Road Transport and Infrastructure Mark Steven Pastor said the concrete barriers will be installed along EDSA immediately upon delivery.

“As per the directive of Secretary Tugade, we will fast-track the completion of the EDSA busway together with other concerned agencies. The delivery of barriers will be along EDSA already so mailalagay na rin natin ang mga ito upon receipt,” Asec. Pastor shared.

On 01 July 2020, the interim operations of the EDSA busway started, with 550 bus units authorized to use it.

The EDSA Busway aims to significantly cut travel time from Monumento, Caloocan to the Parañaque Integrated Terminal Exchange (PITX) from the usual 2 to 3 to just 45 minutes to 1 hour. (DOTr/PIA-NCR)

Bakit Uto-Uto ang mga Pulahan?

Yung tipong habang tumitingin ka sa feed mo may nakita kang nag-share ng mga conspiracy theory. Bakit ba naeenganyo sila? Paniwalang paniwala sila. Basahin ang maikling kasagutan tungkol dito. It makes them feel special and different. It gives them a feeling of being better than others, of having their eyes opened to a 'truth' that others don't see. That's why some call non-believers 'sheeple.' I think it's similar to the feeling we get whenever we learn an obscure yet interesting piece of trivia. The thought of "No one else knows it!" I also think conspiracies appeal to the way humans think, especially now. A desire to search for patterns. There has to be reason and purpose for anything. But this is not right! I still blame the lack of the fundamental research skills that needs to be taught in school. I believe you get to have a full subject on your 4th year, but investigative skills and fact checking should be honed at a young age.

Para sa mga Pulahan

Kung narito ka ngayon. Marahil ay isa ka sa mga napadpad o mas magandang sabihin ay isa ka sa marites na nakatambay sa page ng mga kakampinks. Kung tama ako, para sayo talaga to!  Para sa mga PULAHAN. Wala ba kayong page na nagmamahal sa inyo kaya andito kayo sa page ng mga kakampinks? :) Salamat pa rin sa pagdalaw kahit ang purpose niyo talaga ay ang ibash kami. ✌️

How To Make A Country Worship You

Hayaan mo lang na lumala ng lumala ang ekonomiya. Hayaan mo magutom ang mga tao. Hayaan mo silang magpatayan. Hanggang sa maupos na ng tuluyan ang pag asa nila na magkakaroon pa ng pagbabago. Hayaan mo silang abala sa mga libangan nila at may mahabang oras ka na manlinlang at malilinlang mo talaga sila. Gumawa ka ng maraming misdirections para akala nila informed sila. Sa kawalan nila ng pag-asa, hagisan mo ng tira tira. Hagisan mo ng latak ng sarili nilang pera. Hagisan mo ng katiting na awa. Hindi mo kailangan ayusin ang mga ng problema ng bansa. Kailangan mo lang palabasin na may ginagawa ka kahit wala.
