I still wear a mask to protect myself and other people, even if I hate them. Public health is more important than the inconvenience of wearing a mask.

Seeing dogs, especially puppies, makes me happy.

NAIA Terminal 3 is a (literally) hot mess and it deserves it's reputation as being one of the worst in the world. But we already have an alternative.

@Norobiik Use Clark airport? Nobody does because it's so inconvenient to get there from Metro Manila. Until then, it will remain underutilized.

BINI members Maloi from Batangas and Aiah from Cebu challenge each other to guess the meaning of common phrases in their native languages Tagalog (Batangueño dialect) and Cebuano.

We don't need another app to install.

When Grab PH bought motorcycle taxi app Move It, I thought I would become a 1st-time customer of that service. I use Grab, so it already has my info. I wouldn't need to sign up and type all my details. How convenient.

But Move It wasn't integrated into the Grab app. Instead, I would have to download a new app.

Bummer. One fewer customer for the company.

Vice Ganda’s entry, captioned "Lagi kitang pipiliin, Pilipinas," that has got the internet abuzz, has gained 4 million views in just 16 hours since posting Saturday night.

One scene takes Vice "to the disputed West Philippine Sea, where she takes on a Chinese vessel's water cannon—a reference to China’s recent worrisome incursions."

The U.S. displaces China as Germany's biggest trading partner. Germany had been urging German companies to decouple from China.

"Combined exports and imports between Germany and the U.S. totaled 63 billion euros ($68 billion) between January and March of 2024, while trade with China came to just below 60 billion euros."

All of a sudden the internet slowed down... but only on my laptop (and the tv). I checked the internet speed test on my phone and it's plenty fast. But on my laptop it's super slow. I tried changing DNS , but the speed is not improving. I disabled all bandwidth-hogging tasks via Task Manager, and it's still not improving. I wonder what could be the reason. A friend is blaming it on the geomagnetic storm.

In the PH, the hit song "Pantropiko" was the first song composed by Angelika Sam Ortiz, a film major. Already with 45M streams on Spotify and 16M views on YouTube, the summer-themed song has made PH girl group BINI the most popular P-Pop group in the country, even more popular than SB19 and BGYO.

Another unique(?) trope in #Kdrama land is this:

When a character is about to reveal something important, like their true identity, they will be interrupted with either:

  1. An emergency.
  2. They're summoned by someone higher.

^_^;;

You eventually get used to it, and expect it is going to happen.

Volleyball is becoming more popular in the PH. 17,834 fans trooped to the Araneta Coliseum for the PH's PVL semifinals games while 19,505 watched the UST-La Salle women’s Final Four clash at the Mall of Asia Arena.

Meanwhile, the PBA (PH pro men's basketball league) struggles to fill stadiums.

PH tells China to leave Panatag Shoal, also known as Scarborough Shoal, which is a high-tide elevation located just over 120 nautical miles off the coast of Zambales. According to international law, the shoal is within the PH's exclusive economic zone (220 nautical miles).

@jikodesu@mastodon.social avatar

How can economics be a field of science? All sciences are based on the Earth’s (or universe's) natural laws.

How can unlimited economic growth on a finite planet be possible?

Why doesn't wealth accummulated (stolen) by a few rich individuals trickle down to the poor?

Economics is not based on reality, so why is it called a field of science?
