ImageAnd this is Not the First Time - Passenger ferries capsizing in the Philippines is not uncommon, and this is an unfortunate truth.

Aside from poor decision making skills with regards to pursuing or pausing due to bad weather, poor quality of boats and safety equipments, and worse, lacking safety equipments, casualties are frequently expected during disasters.

They have all the recipe for a disaster. Frequent bad weather, pursuing on trips even with knowledge of bad weather, and worse, overfilling boats from their capacity by not adding those names in the manifest. Nothing good can be expected when all the risks are taken.

ImageThe United States of America, the very basis of the idea of liberty, equality, and justice, had a questioning and hypocritical prison, Guantanamo.

It has been subject to a lot of controversies, with prisoners being abused, and people being detained for years without being given the right to defend themselves in a proper court.

ImageThe recent disasters that hit both China and Myanmar are actually devastating on scales we could not imagine. To put it into perspective, if Brunei had the same disaster, half the population would be dead, and 40% of the remaining population would be missing, and the rest would not have had a home. Myanmar's population is certainly not the biggest, which would mean that while percentagewise it would not sound as disastrous as what it would have been like if it was Brunei, but this is not statistics, this is human life.

The most important thing, everyone wants to help, just as everyone wants to support China. China could get applause for how it is handling the disaster, but it is getting criticism for having shoddy infrastructure in the first place. This openness and transparency (or to the most that China will be willing to present) gives us an idea, however small, of the picture of the disaster, and how we can help out.
Myanmar, on the other hand, is a largely worrying situation. We are all definite and certain that the death toll is largely understated, and for a country with no means or proper infrastructure available to rescue all that could possibly be rescued, or nurse the injured and critical back to health, things cannot get better.

ImageWhich technologies end up spoiling us? There is nothing really wrong with technology. The evolution of communications has helped us become more efficient in getting our job done, and relaying our messages at a faster time. I do recall the time I did not have such communications, and how much time delay I will have to set in getting the job done because I cannot move without the other party giving their response. Now, it is all real time, in fact too real time. I am deprived of sleep given that anyone can call me anytime. This is the price I am willing and happy to pay to make the most out of who I can be and how I can serve.

ImageThe United States has truly taken the initial step in becoming a global nation. It has sought to give advice, direction, and help to other countries in order to preserve peace, liberate citizens, and promote wealth. Many other countries have also participated, and while the new elections are nearing, this idea does not only become an issue for the US, but for all the countries as well.

With India and China showing vast economic growth, it is no doubt that they have to be more involved in global politics. Their actions, as it has been for many countries, meant that other countries do get affected on both local decisions and international.

ImageI know this article will generate a lot of comments. But it has to be said.

I think oil prices going up is going to be a very good thing in the next five years.

We have all found that the previous cost of oil was so affordable we can all afford to buy large vehicles when the only one driving them would be one person. We waste a lot of resources for the sake of satisfying that image we are trying to portray. We live and squander on inefficiency because resources feel unlimited. We are now reading more media reports on global warming and resource limitation that we have to stop and think, "have we taken our planet for granted?"
