The recent changes in the school year announced by many of schools in the Philippines may threaten the Philippine tourism industry and that will severely damage the wealth, health and beauty of the Philippines.
The Department of Education has mulled the idea of changing the school year for some time, in order that the academic year become congruent with schools and colleges in North America and Europe. It has now approved the changes for a number of the nation's school and colleges.

Friday 8th November, 2013, the most powerful typhoon to make landfall ever recorded swiped at the southern shores of Samar Island and smashed, like a freight train on steroids, into the town of Guiuan, Samar, and the city of Tacloban, Leyte; it pushed before it a storm surge - a wall of water - some 5 meters high (higher by some accounts). This “natural disaster”, that has possibly claimed upwards of 10,000 lives, should be a wake up call to the World because the cause is anything but natural. At the moment, only one person has shown the passion and dedication necessary to say it like it is . . .
