Philippines by way of Texas : Online Reputation Repair

Philippines by way of Texas : Online Reputation Repair:

67% of people do a Vanity search.

As I have said before I have have a cyberstalker.  Never met this man nor have I have publicly or online said a word about him.  Yet there he is.  A jealous bitter older man in France that has nothing better to do then write things that are untrue.  So if you are a victim of this here are a few pointers to help you through getting back what these people try and steal from you.

1)  Create a blog and blog daily.  It does not have to be much but content is important.  When you get a blog find the keywords that are used by the stalker.  Use those words in your blog.  Additionally you want to set up your blog correctly.  Google analytic  Webmaster tools, Site Map, and share on social media. Twitter, Facebook, Google+.  These help promote your site.  If you look to the left you will see all the social media I created just to offset any of the Google terms.

Children Living in Poverty Philippines

Child Poverty In The Philippines

Child Poverty

Children growing up in the poorest urban areas in the Philippines are increasingly worse off than those in rural regions and face greater risks from natural disasters, exploitation and HIV, the United Nations’ children agency UNICEF warns.

In a report launched on Tuesday, The State of the World’s Children 2012: Children in an Urban World, UNICEF says rapid global urbanisation means the traditional image of poverty is no longer represented by a child in a rural village.

In the Philipppines, hundreds of thousands of impoverished urban children are growing up in squalor, deprived of education and healthcare.

Almost half the country’s population – 46 million people including 18 million children under the age of 18 – are now living in towns and cities, making the Philippines one of the most urbanised populations in Southeast Asia, UNICEF said.

By 2030 it is projected three out of four people in the Philippines could be living in urban areas.

Despite the perception that cities are “engines of growth,” many of these children live in unsafe and insecure houses and lack access to schooling, water and sanitation, UNICEF said.

“UNICEF is very concerned about children living in the poorest, urban areas because research shows that they suffer from multiple deprivations, and are increasingly worse off than those living in rural poor settings,” Dr. Abdul Alim, deputy representative of UNICEF in Philippines told AlertNet.

“Urban poverty can trap children in a downward spiral of poverty and squalor, leading to sickness, neglect and risk of exploitation,” he added.


In Metro Manila, the most populated area with more than 11.5 million people, an estimated 1.7

million children live in slums.

UNICEF said 54 percent of people living in these informal settlements have no access to safe water and 51 percent no access to toilets, worse than any other urban or rural areas.

While children born in urban areas in the Philippines have slightly better chances of surviving than those in rural areas (20 deaths per 1,000 live births in urban areas compared to 35 in rural areas), they fare worse in some ways.

For example, poor urban children are less likely to be breastfed than those in rural regions (83 percent versus 92 percent), UNICEF said, increasing the risk of malnutrition. Those who are breastfed are also likely to be nursed for a shorter time in urban areas (seven months versus 17 months), the agency added.


While rural and urban poverty can both be very detrimental to children, those in urban areas face specific risks, said Alim.

“There can be the additional threats of HIV, lack of access to education, threat of natural disasters and risk of violence, trafficking and exploitation,” he added.

The Philippines is one of the most vulnerable countries wehn it comes to disasters and climate change. Urban areas along the coast often bear the brunt of the typhoons which hammer the country every year.

Poorer urban families are particularly at risk as they usually live in flimsy homes on the worst land. Many are on unstable slopes or low-lying areas prone to flooding.

Typhoon Sendong which struck northern Mindanao last year and Typhoon Ketsana which slammed into Manila in 2009 both had a devastating effect on poor urban families and slum dwellers.

The Philippines is also one of a handful of countries where HIV infection rates are showing a marked increase, according to a 2010 review.

The prevalence of HIV remains higher in urban areas – more than 50 percent of all infections in 2011 were registered in Metro Manila – and one out of three newly reported cases is in young people aged between 15-24, UNICEF said.

Change The Philippines

How to change the Philippines

(Its Not Like The Netherlands)

How to change the Philippines

In a typical western country, when there’s a problem, you assemble the people and make changes in the policy. Then you can make a lasting change in society.
In the Philippines, that’s not necessarily the case. 90% of the problem is the people themselves, and only 10% the policies. I’m not even exaggerating. 10% is a generous estimate if you take into account the fact that the policies themselves are made by the people. Since the policies did not make themselves, if I’m being uncompromising I would say 100% of the problem is the people.
Filipinos and western people are different on the level of the ‘person’ who thinks, feels and takes action as dictated by his habitual preferences and intellectual inclinations and limitations. That’s what a lot of people don’t understand. They think ethnic differences aren’t a factor. They are, and they’re a huge factor.
Remember, filogic and filethic are formidable enemies you cannot underestimate. They are embedded deep within the brains of the vast majority of Filipinos and are so strongly entrenched in Philippine society that they’re a major source of headache for people from western countries who have stayed in the Philippines for an extended period of time. Without such flaws in the Filipino’s nature, I don’t think the Philippines would have become a problematic nation in the first place.
Filogic and filethic don’t exist among western people. They exist among Filipinos. Expats from western countries see these two as the main problem, and they are (though Filipinos themselves are clueless about it). Therefore, ethnic differences are a factor. You cannot take for granted the fact that the western man is different from the Filipino.
If you don’t consider it a factor, you’re going to compare apples to oranges like a man did when I talked to him on another website recently. Here’s what he said:
“We – the Dutch – have been there, where the Filipinos are today. But thank God, that was 50, 60 years ago…Although I myself am impatient by nature and I do know that most changes have to go step-by-step, its very clear that the Philippines can leap (instead of making little tiny steps) forward.”
