Faulty brakes always the culprit
HAVE BAT WILL STRIKE - Juanito V. Jabat   (The Freeman) - August 13, 2015 - 10:00am

Motor vehicle brakes ("preno") continue to be blamed for the highway accidents killing many people. Erring drivers are always quick to lay the blame on faulty brakes. Because traffic cops can't be arrested and jailed and they (drivers) can always try to go scot free.

The UCMed has opened the Cebu Rheumatology Center, the only one outside Manila. A blessing for countless senior citizens claiming to be "rayuma" and "artraytis" sufferers. Now there's a place for lola and/or lolo to go to when the pain in the joints strike.

A real estate analyst, sir Nicolas Pimentel, said in a business story written by TF staff member Ehda M. Dagooc that Cebu is a natural magnet for development. Meaning that regardless of who're sitting at City Hall and/or the Provincial Capitol development would just come as if drawn in by magnet?

I like to believe that's what the development means. I don't exactly know. But looking at how fast Cebu has been growing this past decades, I think that's how I understood what the expert said.

Mon Fernandez, a PBA legend, was right when he said the Philippines had nothing to be ashamed of for failing to win its bid to host the FIBA World Cup in 2019. We were the only small country who dared to try against powerful China. To have been given the chance to compete with China in the bidding is already a big honor in the basketball world.

I tip my hat off to Manny V. Pangilinan  who led the Phl delegation to China composed of Chot Reyes, Rep. Manny Pacquiao, Jimmy Alapag and Fil-American celebrity Lou Diamond Philipps. As the  old saying goes, "better luck next time."

VP Binay talked about PNoy being a dictator. The same rap Noynoy used to remind Marcos that it was time for him to step down as there was no dictator in world history that survived the people's wrath.

A year after the San Roque fire, 64 families gone homeless still live in tents. It was not supposed to be a tentative solution. Was it?
