INC in the BOC

INC in the BOC 

For the people, by the people is a myth. We live in a failed democracy, it's all an illusion. No different from president BS Aquino's mantra of "Daang Matuwid" (Straight Path). 



No less than four (4) I would say highly placed government officials have pressured Sevilla to quit his post because the ex-chief of customs refused to give Atty. Raval the helm for the Bureau of Customs (BOC) intellectual property division, enforcement and security services (ESS). 

The Raval appointment is being lobbied by Iglesia Ni Cristo (INC), a popular religious group in the Philippines. 

It is a fact that corruption is rampant within our government. It is also a fact that religious groups with their claims of a "bulk vote" can exert a lot of influence onto our morally ambiguous and power hungry politicians. So there are no surprises there. 

My questions are...

1. Are the four cabinet dorks, members of INC? Did they act because they were instructed by the higher ups in government or by their religious leaders, maybe even both? 

2. It is moot if the appointee got his post or not, but it would be good to find out if he is a member of INC as well would it not?

3. What interests are held dear by INC leadership or it's prominent members that would benefit from a grateful appointee in customs?

4. What will our government do about this shameful breach of ethics by these four douchebags masquerading as public servants? 

BS Aquino needs to flush the four turds in his cabinet but don't bet on it. He is absurdly over protective of his cabinet, even if they are already failing him or giving him a worse image than the one he already has. This is great advertising for INC who's membership may yet grow once word spreads that they have the ear of highly placed officials. Let the vicious cycle continue. Move along, move along...

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…
