Bloomberg Innovators TV Series

Last night I caught a new TV series on Bloomberg channel titled Innovators.
A TV program that debuted last October 30 this year, it "brings you people who are changing the way we live, from new ways of interacting with computers and exploring space to high-speed communications and creating in 3D."

That 4th episode of Innovators, "The World Is Not Flat" (this links to the online broadcast of this episode on, was a behind-the-scenes look at some of the leaders of visual 3D technology and production, at innovative ways to interact with video interfaces, and at 3D printing technologies that allow for faster and cheaper production of, for example, prototype objects.

Baha-Bahang Buhay: Mga Kuwentong Ondoy

This article was originally published on, categorized under Arts & Culture; original author undisclosed:

Baha-Bahang Buhay: Mga Kuwentong Ondoy

Loss and suffering take on a human face as Tanghalang Ateneo stages Baha-Bahang Buhay: Mga Kuwentong Ondoy, a play depicting people's experiences of the fury unleashed by Typhoon Ondoy.

The play, written and directed by company members, assembles fourteen stories of lives transformed by a devastating storm. To the students, the work represents one way in which the theater can respond to social crisis.

The stories portray loss and pain in varied, sometimes unusual, situations. A mother searches for a missing child lost in the rush of people to claim relief goods. Soldiers assigned to rescue flood victims worry about the safety of their own families. A family diligently follows survival tips from a radio announcer. A journalist wonders if the photographs he has taken of human suffering make a real difference in people's lives.

Four friends trapped in a flooded room are assaulted by a crocodile. Students connecting to classmates via the internet suddenly lose connection with one of them. A manager of a relief operations center is unable to deliver goods because there?s no way to bring them to flooded areas. These and other stories, including a reference to the wrath of Mother Nature let loose by environmental damage, are brought to life by actors playing multiple roles.

Come and watch Baha-Bahang Buhay. Your support will be a source of hope for persons and communities affected by the typhoons. Proceeds will help student groups dedicated to continue relief and rehabilitation efforts in the wake of Typhoons Ondoy and Pepeng.

The Multiplication of Good

I've been thinking about this since the overwhelming help that arrived from all over the Philippines, even overseas, to ease the effects of the tragedy of typhoon Ondoy on the Filipinos.

Millions of donations were received, thousands of volunteers worked.

I thought [in Tagalog, siyempre :'p] "If only these people had been doing something like this even before the tragedy, the separation of the poor and rich wouldn't have been so great."

What "Would OF Been" Better??!

I just have to talk about this fast.

I'm really irked. Have you seen comments all around the web telling how things "would of been better" if this were that or that were this? It's not "would OF". "Would HAVE".

"Would HAVE".

Come on.

I'm pissed. With the amount of time and number of times it's already been used, I'm just thinking that people would figure out it's wrong and help each other correct it. How difficult is it to know and remember?

YouTube has a lot of these... oh, poor YouTube! ;'o

Geez, English isn't my mother tongue and I see Americans making this mistake. Please, guys... don't insult yourselves.
