Fight for Climate Change

I was supposed to upload a video but, apparently, a Video Upgrade is necessary so I can just go for badges and links.

I registered myself to BAD yesterday and found a few new sites, new to me, that links to the talk of climate change.

The Kyoto protocol is to be edited soon but the people in the governments doesn’t seem to be doing enough for the climate.

350.org and Time4JC.org are some of the site I found.

Food crisis + financial crisis

Fight World Hunger

The food price crisis, dubbed a “silent tsunami” for the world’s poor, is far from over. A recent study revealed that food prices are higher than they were 12 months ago in 46 developing countries. In nine of the countries, food prices are the highest on record.

The current economic crisis, first felt in developed nations, is now impacting on developing nations too. People living in these regions have much less to cushion the blow of an economic downturn and hunger is on the increase.

The combination of high food prices and the economic downturn has the makings of a humanitarian.

In the Horn of Africa, where climate change is aggravating the situation, the effects of the two crises are especially harsh. And as the global economic and financial crises compound the food crisis, hunger and malnutrition are likely to increase further.

Boo to Kanye West, Go On Taylor Swift!

The title might be too harsh but it’s just what I can think of that kind of behavior.

This was supposed to be just some comment to the article at R&R Daily – “Kanye West Storms the VMAs Stage During Taylor Swift’s Speech” – but it got pretty long and I found some stuff while reading the comments…

I’m never really the kind fan who only goes for one artist and be all about him/her/them. I listen to Kaye West, Taylor Swift and Beyoncé…

But what in the world was that?! I mean, even if he thinks Beyoncé deserved that award, couldn’t he have waited and let Taylor have her acceptance speech. The girl deserves her moment alright and Kanye ruined it for forever. To think that it is her first VMA award. Poor Taylor…

And what’s up with the MC defending him?! Yeah, we all have the right to say what we wanna say but there’s a right time for everything. K. West could’ve just blogged aout it. It would’ve been better if he blogged ’bout it and not blog his apology.

Yeah, I know Beyoncé knows how to do her thing, the dancing and all, but come on people, what’s so special about the MV of “Single Ladies”? I ain’t tryna bash Beyoncé here; I listen to her too. I can listen to that song but the MV wasn’t something awesome. I mean, really… It was nothing but her and two girls dancing like whatevers… Then again, I DON’T DANCE… Anyway, “You Belong With Me”‘s MV is way better.

If this wasn’t a stunt for MTV and Kanye did it all by himself and for his publicity, that was just so freakin’ disrespectful. What in the hell is wrong with him?! Now I’m thinkin’ ’bout deleting all the Kanye music in my rig but then again…

I didn’t like Miley’s “Party in the USA” at the Teen Choice Awards but I didn’t delete here music in my rig. The biggest reason would be “Butterfly, Fly Away”.

Or, I think I’m wrong… Points to deleting his music in my rig as I that move was beyond stupid and outright rude. In my book, he really lost a lot of points… He can go down the level of pathetic… That was pretty childish, you know. ‘Bet he acted on impulse.

And he said, “I’ll let you finish.” but I don’t think she gave Taylor the chance to finish as when he returned the mic, Taylor’s time was up.

Was he high? Or is it just normal for him to be doin’ that as he doesn’t care about other people having some attention for themselves as he wants all attention to him? He pretty much got a lot with that move; including this post and look at all those comments to the article at Rock & ROll Daily.

It was cool that Beyoncé called Taylor back to the stage to have her moment; she so deserved her moment. But the thing is… She ain’t never getting her moment back…

I’m just wondering why Taylor cried hysterically, as the article states. Maybe it was the shock or something… Or whatever… I hope “hysterically” was just an overstatement if she really did cry.

Anyway, Kanye, that was too disrespectful, rude, classless, and well, heartless…

I wonder if that stunt pulls his career to the end or he somehow releases one new song and gets another hit as a lot of people will become more curious of him…

(One thing, I ain’t got no MTV so I wasn’t able to watch that show. I just got the news from some other source so I don’t know who were the other people in that category which Taylor won.)

My online radio’s still gon be KDUVfm…

Those are my words…

One comment really hit me…

Typical negra inability to act responsibility or as an adult in the rapper negra’s case.

What a stupid useless race.

What is up with that?! That’s totally racist! “Typical”?! That totally implies that he thinks that negra people are unable to act like adults… What on earth?!

And neither do I think that the issue’s about race, ethnicity or something like it…

Anyway, I just got some news that he’s apologized already – twice on his blog and once on a talk show…

Noynoy Declares Candidacy

First, the title might seem like it but I’m not here to campaign for Sen. Aquino.

Second, don’t blame me if this blog entry gets some votes for him.

And third, yes, I am a voter. But the thing is I am following this 2010 election and this seems like big news to both voters and politicians so I’ll have to include this.

This one was actually breaking news at GMA7’s Unang Hirit when I opened our TV this morning. I was able to forget the title of the news but it was Sen. Aquino answering questions from the audience about his candidacy at Club Filipino, San Juan.

If I’m right about the date, GMA7 organized the Tatakbo Ka Ba? Election 2010 fun run the Sunday before last, August 30, 2009. A part of this event was a Unity Walk for the politicians as a campaign for fair elections. Sen. Aquino didn’t join this event because he said that he was not yet certain on what position to run for in the 2010 elections.

I wasn’t able to see and hear everything ha had said as I woke up a wee bit too late but I did see a few interesting stuff – some interesting answers to questions and stuff like that.

Corruption is a major issue in the Philippines and their was this one person from Sen. Aquino’s audience who was able to ask how the senator plans to solve that problem in case he will be elected as president. Sen. Aquino answered with leading by example.

When asked how he is gonna fund his campaign, his answer was something like, “If we do the traditional political stuff, gather some allies, some politicians and put together our funds, that’ll be too late already as our opponents have already done that long ago. I believe it’ll be the support of the people which will drive this campaign.” No, those weren’t his exact words and he was speaking in Filipino but the thought it there and it comes close as a translation.

At the end of the Q&A for Sen. Aquino, a supporter announced a “Piso Para kay Noynoy” program to support his campaign. The senator joked about it with, “We’ll just have to list down all the names as we’ll have to report this to the ComElec.”

This is where my thoughts come in…

On top of all that, the most curios part would be the yellow, the “Laban sign”, and the Bayan Ko. I thought he had stated that he didn’t want to use his mother, former president Cory Aquino, for his campaign. And what’s up with “Si Noynoy ang magtutuloy” battlecry by his supporters?

One more thing… Why did he have to announce it on a significant day of his mother’s death?

Anyway, his mother, the so-called icon of democracy, left us Filipinos with something good and if Noynoy is serious about following her footsteps and will be at it, it’ll be good for us Filipinos.

We’ll see to that…

This is the Knightingale continuing her watch…
