Magnitude 6.3 Quake Shakes Mindanao

Magnitude 6.3 quake shakes Philippines' Mindanao island

A strong earthquake of magnitude 6.3 struck off the Philippine's Mindanao island on Saturday, sending hotel guests and construction workers running from buildings in Davao, but there were no immediate reports of damage.
The U.S. Geological Survey said the quake, initially reported as a magnitude 6.5, struck at 6:53 a.m. (18:53 ET on Friday) and was centered 114 km (71 miles) east of Davao on Mindanao.
It was a deep tremor, 69 km (43 miles) below the seabed, and was not expected to cause a tsunami, the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said.
A magnitude 6.3 quake is considered strong and is capable of causing severe damage, but Renato Solidum, head of the Philippines' seismic agency, said the effects of this one would be mitigated by its location and depth.
"The quake is offshore and relatively deep and shaking is reported to be maximum of Intensity V, hence we expect no significant damage," Solidum told Reuters.
Dave Cabrera, a security guard at Hotel Uno in downtown Davao, said the quake was felt strongly in the city.
"Many guests left their rooms and rushed downstairs," he said. "That is the strongest I have felt for this year."
Around 1,000 construction workers building the 23-storey Avida Towers nearby also evacuated, said Junrey Quiroa, a security guard on the site.
"That earthquake was strong. We were worried things might fall off so everyone got out of the site."
The Philippines is on the geologically active Pacific Ring of Fire and experiences frequent earthquakes.

Toll Road Opening Eases Trip to NAIA

By: Philippine Daily Inquirer
September 23rd, 2016 01:23 AM
NOWOPEN The first segment of Ninoy Aquino International Airport Expressway is now open. It will link Terminals 1 and 2 in Parañaque City to Macapagal Boulevard and the Entertainment City in Pasay City. For the first month, motorists will not pay toll for using the expressway. RICHARD A. REYES
Access to Manila’s Ninoy Aquino International Airport (Naia) just got a little easier.
Conglomerate San Miguel Corp. (SMC) opened on Thursday the initial section of a toll road seeking to cut the notorious congestion around the Naia complex, the country’s busiest air gateway.
Starting on Thursday, motorists were allowed to use the portion of the Naia Expressway Project Phase 2 that links Terminals 1 and 2 to Macapagal Boulevard, which is near the Entertainment City casino complex.
The rest of the toll road, which extends further to Terminal 3, and Metro Manila Skyway and South Luzon Expressway, would be opened “before the Christmas season,” the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) said in a statement. SMC also operates the Skyway and SLEx.
The opening toll fee of P35 for light vehicles has been waived for the first month of operations. Also waived are the fee of P69 for larger Class 2 vehicles and P104 for Class 3 vehicles.
“Finally, our countrymen will feel the benefit of having faster and more direct access to Naia Terminals 1, 2 and 3. It will also go a long way in easing traffic congestion in surrounding cities, and support growth in southern Metro Manila,” said SMC president Ramon S. Ang.
SMC estimated that more than 40,000 motorists would use the Naia Expressway Phase 2 daily.
Public Works Secretary Mark Villar said the Naia Expressway Phase 2, once fully opened, would cut road congestion by over 60 percent.
PPP project
Before the expressway opening, average travel time between the Skyway and Naia Terminal 1 is 24 minutes, according to the DPWH. That would be cut to 8.2 minutes with Phase 2 of the airport expressway.
The project was among the public-private partnership (PPP) projects launched by the Aquino administration.
SMC, through Vertex Tollways Development Inc., won the P17.9-billion project in 2013 after its P11-billion bid bested the offer of sole rival Metro Pacific Investments Corp.
The conglomerate, which has been diversifying into infrastructure and power, will operate the expressway for 30 years.
In his statement, Ang asked for the public’s understanding, partly due to the added road congestion during the construction of the toll road.
The project was delayed by over a year, as the government dealt with massive right of way issues, including the relocation of various water pipes and power cables along the toll road’s alignment.
“The DPWH would ensure 24/7 operation in the last segment of Naia Expressway,” Villar said.
He added that the Duterte administration was conscious of delivering on its promise. “We will set deadlines and contractors would have to abide.”
Terminals 3 and 4
The Naia Expressway Project is a four-lane, 12.65-kilometer elevated expressway (including ramps) and 2.22-kilometer at-grade road traversing Sales Avenue, Andrews Avenue, Parañaque River, MIAA Road and Diosdado Macapagal Boulevard.
When all phases are completed, the Naia Expressway Project is expected to provide easy access to and from Terminals 1, 2, 3 and 4 and will interface with the South Luzon Expressway through Sales Interchange, Manila Cavite Toll Expressway and Macapagal Boulevard.
A total of 16 off and on ramps are being built along strategic locations at Villamor Air Base, Resorts World, Terminal 3, MIAA Road, Imelda Avenue, Cavitex, Seaside Drive and Macapagal Boulevard.

In Love with Life?

In love with life?

Mindanao Daily News

SOMETIMES, we feel our life is turning miserably. Our negativism doesn’t allow us to keep our eyes, ears – and, most important! – our minds, hearts and souls opened. We’re reaching our breaking point.
This breaking point can be the prelude to our strongest moment. Can be! Must not! But if yes, then it is when we reach our breaking point, we discover our real strength. Allow me to ask you, my dear readers: “What happens to you or with you when you reach your breaking point?” Do you face it or do you run away? I’ll be giving you a very simple answer: If you face it – you break it. If you run away (and/or close your ears, eyes and mouth) – it breaks you!
Are you in love with life? No.
Everyday–a dull reality! Many of us will answer this question with a big YES! Actually, we do like to cover a newborn day already with grey veil. But, each day has a new face, but sometimes we don’t have the strength to watch its countenance. Of course, not every day has adventures and highlights. Would be really too easy!
Contrary to what might be expected, I look back on experiences that, at the same time, seemed especially desolating and painful with a particular satisfaction. Indeed, everything I have learned, everything that has truly enhanced and enlightened my existence, has been through affliction and not through happiness.
If it ever were to be possible to eliminate affliction from your earthly existence, the result would not make life delectable, but to make it too banal and trivial to be endurable.
By observation, we can feel that many of us need help to manage the everyday life. We need something that would keep us going as we journey through life. Many times we can also learn from other people and their experiences.
And here is one more thing: Affection is the humblest love – it gives itself no airs. It lives with humble and private things: soft slippers, old clothes, old jokes, and the thump of a sleepy dog’s tail on the kitchen floor. The glory of affection, the disposition of mind, the good will and tender attachment, that can unite those who are not “made for one and another!”
For me life has been a thing of ups and downs in approximately equal measure. I don’t have something sensational to report every day about my progress. Often, I wonder if fulfillment in life is necessarily tied to change for the better. But one thing is for sure: I keep staying in love with life.

Inmate Colangco to Testify vs De Lima in House's Bilibid Drug Probe

By: Tetch Torres-Tupas, Philippine Daily Inquirer
Convicted robber and drug dealer Herbert “Ampang” Colangco is one of the high profile inmates that will testify against Senator Leila de Lima in the Congressional inquiry next week on the proliferation of illegal drugs in the country’s major prison facility, Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre II said Friday.
Colangco is one of the names in the drug matrix presented by President Rodrigo Duterte as among the convicts inside the Maximum Security Compound of the New Bilibid Prison (NBP) who still managed to continue operations despite incarceration. Also in the matrix is De Lima, her former driver Ronnie Dayan and another drug convict Peter Co.
Colangco also managed to shoot music videos inside prison and donated millions to the Bilibid hospital. He, along with 18 other high profile inmates were moved to the National Bureau of Investigtion (NBI) in late 2014 after authorities discovered that they were living a posh lifestyle inside Bilibid. From NBI, they were moved to Bilibid’s Building 14, a highly secured facility separate from the Maximum Security Compound.
“There are 10 to 12 high profile inmates that will testify kasama si Colangco dun (Colangco is one of them),” Aguirre said.
“They have agreed to testify,” he said but pointed out that there are no concessions or agreement in exchange for their testimony.
Aside from the high profile inmates, Aguirre said a former NBI director and NBI agents will testify against De Lima. CDG
