Comelec exec pushes expanded appointment ban on losing poll bets

ltkdknhmyvsx

first_img“Mocha Uson is not covered by the one-year ban but I will propose in the Senate that party-list nominees should be covered,” say Elections commissioner Rowena Guanzon. CNN PH Comelec commissioner Rowena Guanzon appealedto Sen. Imee Marcos, who chairs the Senate committee on electoral reforms, toinclude the party-list bets in appointment ban. MANILA – Nominees of losing party-listgroups should also be covered by the one-year ban on appointment in publicoffice, an official of the Commission on Election (Comelec) said. At PCOO, Uson drew flak for allegedly spreading disinformation online, posting a racy video on federalism and a video of her friend, blogger Drew Olivar, flailing his arms around pretending to do the sign language, on her Facebook page. “I am appearing in the Committee of Sen. Imee; I propose (that the) ban should also cover Party-List nominees” Guanzon said in a tweet. “And party-list to put up bond. If nominee is DQ (disqualified), forfeit their bond.” Meanwhile, Comelec spokesperson James Jimenez has earlier said that President Rodrigo Duterte’s appointment of Uson was not a violation since party-list representatives are not covered by the one-year appointment ban. Guanzon also retweeted another social media post quoting her as saying: “They should not be a favored class because they are not a protected class.” “She is not covered. Party-list nominees are not candidates per se and so, the rule does not apply to them,” Jimenez said. Guanzon made the call after former communications assistant secretary Margaux “Mocha Uson’s return to government as deputy administrator of the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA). Prior to her OWWA job, Uson joined the government as member of the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board before being named as assistant secretary at the Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO). She has tendered her resignation on October last year as she had tried to secure a seat in the House of Representatives through party-list AA-Kasosyo. The group, however, lost in the May midterm elections./PNlast_img read more

History of Philippines’ Taal volcano eruptions since 1572

ltkdknhmyvsx

first_imgHere’s a timeline of Taal Volcano eruptions, according to Phivolcs. January 31, 1968; October 29, 1969 – The only Strombolian eruptions of Taal Volcano were recorded on these dates, which both happened at the Mt Tabaro crater. Lava flow and fountaining happened in both incidents. August 11, 1749 – The main crater had a phreatomagmatic eruption and was recorded as “very violent” by Phivolcs. It affected residents of Taal Volcano Island and lakeshore towns of Taal, Sala, and Tanauan. In phreatic eruptions, only preexisting solid rock fragments are ejected. In contrast, phreatomagmatic eruptions shoot out magma. September 3, 1970; September 3, 1976; October 3, 1977 – The last 3 eruptions that occurred before the 2020 explosion. These eruptions were similar in nature – they all took place at the Mt Tabaro crater and were all phreatic. January 27 to February 10, 1911 – A phreatic and “very violent” eruption occurred at the main crater, causing rock particles and fragments to fall and shoot out of the volcano. Phivolcs recorded 1,335 casualties in this incident. 1709, 1729 – Separate eruptions occurred at its Binintiang Munti crater. The 1709 incident was classified as phreatomagmatic. There were also 25 to 80-centimeter thick deposit of ashfall, acid rain, shock waves, and cracking and sinking of land. PHOTO COURTESY OF ARDEN PIMENTEL 1707 – Taal Volcano erupted at its Binintiang Malaki crater or its largest flank cone that’s visible from Tagaytay City. It is said that the Binintiang Malaki was formed during this eruption. It was classified as phreatic, and shock waves were also reported. Another eruption occurred in the area in 1715. July 5, 1966; August 16, 1967 – Separate phreatomagmatic eruptions occurred again at the Mt Tabaro crater. Both incidents caused rock particles to fall from the volcano and shoot out in projectile motion. September 28 to 30, 1965 – Taal Volcano erupted at Mt Tabaro, leaving 200 casualties, according to Phivolcs. The eruption was phreatomagmatic and violent, characterized by falling of rock fragments, ashfall with 25-centimeter thick deposit, and acid rain. September 21, 1716 – An underwater, phreatomagmatic eruption occurred at Calauit, which is located at the eastern shore of the Taal Volcano island.center_img 1790, 1808, 1825, 1842, 1873, 1874, 1878, 1903, 1904 – Separate eruptions occurred at the main crater. The 1808 and 1874 eruptions were classified as phreatomagmatic, while the 1878 and 1904 were phreatic. Located in Batangas, a province 60 kilometers south of Manila, Taal Volcano and the area around it have become one of the most frequented vacation spots in Southern Luzon. Although it is classified as an active volcano, it hasn’t erupted in 43 years or since 1977. This incident is considered Taal Volcano’s biggest eruption yet and lasted almost 7 months. It buried 4 towns in Batangas under ash, volcanic rocks, and water. Ashfall registering 100 to 110-centimeter deposits was reported, as well as shock waves and acid rain. May 15 to December 5, 1754 – A phreatomagmatic/plinian eruption took place, characterized by a “very violent” explosion accompanied by falling and ejection of rock particles. A plinian eruption is characterized by continuous gas blasts and explosive ejection of viscous lava. 1591, 1605 to 1611, 1634, 1635, 1641, 1645 – Separate eruptions occurred in these periods at the main crater. In 1591 and 1641, the eruptions were classified as phreatic. Tephra or rock particles and fragments were also visible in the 1641 incident. The eruptions were not all similar. Most of them were caused by the interaction of magma and water (phreatic and phreatomagmatic). Others were caused by the rising of bubbles formed by the fusion of gas inside the volcano (strombolian). MANILA – Taal Volcano is one of the 24 active volcanoes listed by the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs). It is also one of the world’s lowest and deadliest volcanoes. The volcano consists of multiple stratovolcanoes and craters. Since 1572, it has recorded 34 eruptions. 1731 – An underwater eruption happened in Pira-Piraso, or the eastern tip of the island. This was classified as phreatomagmatic. Flowing mixture of gas and ejected rock fragments were reported, as well as falling of rock particles. 1572 – A phreatomagmatic eruption occurred at the main crater of the volcano. Taal Volcano hasn’t erupted since 1977, as confirmed by Renato Solidum, Department of Science and Technology undersecretary for disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation. However, there had been volcanic unrest recorded in 2011, 2012, and 2014. (Rappler.com)last_img read more

Wilson: Spring Game boosts hype for improving Syracuse program

ltkdknhmyvsx

first_img Published on April 20, 2014 at 9:42 pm Facebook Twitter Google+ There were only about 4,071 people in the Carrier Dome for Syracuse’s Spring Game on Saturday, but almost all of them made their way onto the field after the game.There was a chance to pose for photos with Scott Shafer and get autographs from current and former players. The overhead view was something that more closely resembled the open side of the Dome during a big basketball game than the expectation for an Orange Spring Game.And in the middle of it all was an older man — probably in his mid 60s — clutching two miniature American flags and sprinting in circles around the Carrier Dome field.Spring football fever.It was only 4,071, but the attendance was an improvement from last year — and it was 4,071 who genuinely seemed excited to be there. And what they saw wasn’t always pretty, but usually at least resembled and somehow finished with a football score. Despite a scoring system that awarded defensive stops and three-and-outs and a halftime show during which Riley Dixon scored seven points by punting, the offense triumphed over the defense 34-27, albeit with a disappointingly rudimentary playbook of short passes.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textBut the football was only part of what mattered. What was more important was that somehow football was earning the headlines for a week in mid-April. With a craftily executed “big announcement” at Destiny USA earlier in the week to lead in to Saturday’s Spring Game, SU found a way to fill, at least for a fleeting moment, Syracuse’s sports void that lasts from April until August.“Being a small part of the community means a lot to me and this team,” Shafer said during his press conference at Destiny USA. “I’ve always talked a lot about how we want to represent this program in a first-class fashion, but we also want to make sure it’s your team.”The big reveal on Wednesday that officially signaled the return of football wasn’t so much a surprise as it was an excuse to hype up a program that finally seems like it’s moving in the right direction.Somehow the Orange had lured Louisiana State into a game at the Carrier Dome. And when the Tigers arrived, SU would be wearing new jerseys. Looks like Nike remembered they play some football in Central New York, too.And love them or hate them, the jerseys make Syracuse at least look like the big-time program it’s striving to become.Instrumental, though, was the decision to make the announcement at Destiny. With the band and cheerleaders in tow, there was fanfare to match the intrigue of this big announcement.On Saturday, the Orange picked up right where it left off. Shafer opened the festivities with an appeal to the fans to take up his offer — he’ll buy you another ticket to the Villanova game as long as you buy the first. All the hallmarks he brings to the sideline, he’s trying to bring to the community, including his goofily named, yet perfectly fitting “Next Fan Up” campaign.“I just really want this to be your team,” Shafer said while addressing the crowd before the Spring Game. “Our goal is increased attendance. Our job is to play good football.”Typically the Spring Game just devolves into a forum for ridicule toward the often-bumbling SU football program. Even two years ago, a year before head coach Doug Marrone jumped to the NFL, the crowd witnessed the defense outscore the offense 9-0.Oh, and there was no fancy scoring system in that one.“I’d like to try to keep it a football score,” quarterbacks coach Tim Lester said. “I thought it worked out well.”This year’s offense looked good with its limited playbook and Syracuse suddenly has some exciting playmakers — Ashton Broyld and Brisly Estime is a scary big-play tandem.In the end, that’s what will get people excited for Syracuse football. This team needs to put a consistently better product on the field. Until then, at least that guy sprinting in circles in the Dome has enough energy for everyone.David Wilson is a staff writer at The Daily Orange, where his column appears occasionally.
