MMDA/LGU smoking ban is illegal, and an attack on Filipino #Liberty

RA9211 http://www.lawphil.net/statutes/repacts/ra2003/ra_9211_2003.html section 5 and 6 states the places were smoking should be banned.

How can the scope be expanded by the executive branch (MMDA/LGU) don't we need an amendment to the law to have that? Was there an amendment to RA9211 that we have not been informed about? Unless there is an amendment to expand the scope of sections 5 and 6, what the MMDA and LGUs is doing are illegal! Where is the legislative branch when you need them?

MMDA & LGU banning smoking on roads / streets is an over reach, it's illegal, and it is an assault on our liberty. What is worse is imposing fines and punishment for something that is not lawful in the first place is an abuse of power (not to mention a potential avenue for corruption) 

Politicians don't want to be called anti-health, or anti-environment. NONE OF OUR LAWMAKERS STOOD UP TO DEFEND US!!! Everyone in congress should be ashamed! Giving the executive branch free reign to meddle in the lives of it's citizens. This is not good governance this is over governance!!! We must not and should not allow government to meddle with the way we live. I fear that we truly live in a failed democracy. 

Filipinos when you are done discussing underwear billboards, open your eyes and minds. You will see that what I am saying is not anti-health, it's not anti-environment... it's PRO-LIBERTY.

Tips & Tricks|Orientation Aware Backgrounds

I just wanted to share some stuff I learned over at xda-dev's forum today.

Anyway as the title states this is about today themes and Orientation Aware Backgrounds. It's really quite simple

All you need is 2 images [3 if you want to change the Start Menu image as well] of the proper resolution.

QVGA:
tdywater_320_240.gif [Landscape Image] = 320 x 240 image
tdywater_240_320.gif [Portrait Image] = 240 x 320 image
stwater [Start Menu Image] = 190 x 290 image

VGA:
tdywater_640_480.gif [Landscape Image] = 640 x 480 image
tdywater_480_640.gif [Portrait Image] = 480 x 640 image

What you do is copy the files to \Windows directory and viola! Orientation Aware Backgrounds!
--
Notes: The theme's default images will be used once you switch themes. So you would need to copy the files back again to \Windows dir for it to work again, what I do is I have placed Wallpaper sets in ZIP files on my Storage Card so I can change and change as desired.…

Black Cat vs Firestar vs Silver Sable?

Spider-man needs a partner or side-kick. I prefer crime fighting partner vs side-kick tho.

Marvel is rumored to be hiring Josh Brolin for Thanos as the mega-villain for their cinematic universe. This means Guardians of the Galaxy & Avengers. Both are super teams.

Fox has teased a mega-villain for the X-Men super-team to go up against in their latest movie. FYI, X-Men: Days of Future Past has a post credit scene. I think Fantastic Four is also being rebooted. Yes that is a super-team as well.

DC still playing catch-up but they are going in with the heavy hitters Bats & Boy Scout with a rumored Amazon in the mix. We all know the goal is the Justice League super-team

Meanwhile, I think Sony is in trouble. Right now they have the "Web Head" going up against multiple villains and the formula is kinda stale. Franchise fatigue not withstanding, our favorite web slinging, trash talking super-hero has the "Sinister Six" super villain group to fight but who can h…

DENR Pollution Control Officer Basic Training Seminar

If you've been following me on plurk or twitter you'd know that I'm attending a 4 day Department of Environmental and Natural Resources (DENR) Basic Training Course for Pollution Control Officers (PCO) for our company.

Basically the PCO is tasked to make sure that the business is complying to the laws of the land in regards to the environment.

The good... There are laws in place for safe guarding our air, water, land quality. That's AWESOME! Captain Planet is getting a big boost.

The bad... It seems that this seminar is focused more on MONEY. I don't know why I am surprised it's government. Most of the compliance discussions have been about getting permits, fines, penalties. I could not take it anymore so I asked the lecturer. What could we do to bring down emissions and minimize waste water. His response: Our mandate is to check for compliance, maybe you should ask the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) on what can be done. NICE! It would've been…
