MANILA – The House of Representatives has approved on third and final reading the measure postponing the synchronized barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) elections next year. Incumbent barangay and SK officials will remain in office until their successors have been duly elected and qualified. “The 2020 barangay and SK polls are postponed to a later date in order to allow the incumbent village officials to continue implementing various policies and complete programs that they just started as funds have just been made available, for a more sustainable development of the barangays,” stated on the House bill.center_img President Rodrigo Duterte, during his fourth State of the Nation Address last July, personally asked the Congress to prioritize the bill postponing the 2020 barangay and SK elections.

If signed into law, it will be the third time that the barangay and SK elections will be postponed under the Duterte administration./PNlast_img read more

California voters approve Prop 12

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest On Election Day California voters approved Proposition 12, an initiative that, starting in 2020, bans the sale of pork and veal from animals raised anywhere in the country in housing the state banned through a 2008 ballot initiative. (In 2010, the California Legislature banned the sale of eggs from hens housed in so-called battery cages regardless of where they are raised.)Prop. 12 also requires egg-laying hens in the state to be cage free. National Pork Producers Council, which strongly opposed it, maintains that the initiative violates the U.S. Constitution’s Commerce Clause and that it will be costly for farmers and consumers. The organization is supporting federal legislation that would prohibit states from regulating agricultural production practices outside their borders and is backing lawsuits — now pending before the U.S. Supreme Court — filed by attorneys general from nearly two dozen states against California’s egg sales ban and a 2016 Massachusetts ballot measure that banned the sale of eggs, pork and veal from animals raised in housing prohibited by the same measure.last_img read more

The Hustler’s Playbook: Bet Big On Yourself

first_imgI am just back from speaking in Las Vegas. Getting to the conference center required a walk through the Casino at Caesar’s Palace. There are two kinds of people you see in a casino.The first group, usually seen playing at night, has set aside some money to gamble during a night out with their friends. They aren’t gambling because they believe they are somehow going to solve their money problems or end up with real wealth (even if some do get carried away).The second kind of people you see in a casino, even during daylight hours, have not set aside money to gamble on a night out on the town with their friends. They’re playing with money they don’t really have, believing that luck will find them and solve their money problems.The people in the first group have bet on themselves and ended up in a position where they have money that they can gamble and lose. The second group of people bet on luck finding them because they don’t believe in themselves enough to place that same bet on their own success.Non-hustlers won’t bet on themselves because they don’t believe that bet is well-placed.They believe they have better odds of being lucky than figuring out how to generate the results they want for themselves.They believe that the chances of winning big in a casino are better than the chances of their following through with their commitment to do the work necessary to succeed.Non-hustlers believe that forces outside of themselves are what determine who you are and what you have.Hustler’s bet big on themselves, knowing that they cannot make a safer bet, nor can they place a bet that pays off at the same level, or over as a long a period of time.The business you talk about starting is a bet on yourself. That course you want to take so you can change careers is a bet on yourself. The time you spend working on your own hustle late at night and early in the morning is a bet that you can build the version of you that comes after this one.Bet big. But make that you bet on the one and only thing worth betting on: You. Essential Reading!

Movie review: Yeh Khula Aasmaan

first_imgYeh Khula AasmaanCast: Raghuveer Yadav, Raj Tandon, Anya Anand, Yashpal Sharma, Manjusha Godse, Kishor Nadalskar, Nitin KerurDirection: Gitanjali SinhaRating:  A teenager grapples with his no-show in academics. The pressure to qualify for IIT is killing him. Mom and dad are too busy to pay attention and the boy has no one to turn to.You get the familiar picture of urban crisis this film is trying to set up. It’s not really the first time that Bollywood has tapped the subject, and debutant Gitanjali Sinha tries narrating her coming-of-age tale with a retrospective twist. When life gets messed up on the fast lane, get far away from the maddening crowd. Head back to the village for a pep dose of self-discovery.Debutant Raj Tandon plays Avinash, the young hero of the film who is lonely, depressed and confused. The turnaround in his story comes when Avinash visits his Dadu, Gulab Rai (Raghuveer Yadav). The boy finds a support system in the grandfather. Realising Avinash’s problem is psychological, Dadu – a kite running champ in his heydays – decides to instil self-realisation in the boy using the sport as a template.The kite-flying metaphor used to unravel lessons on life, love, friendship and hope are, however, predictably drawn. That bit is a snag, as is the snail’s pace of the narrative. Yeh Khula Aasmaan could have been watchable fare had its makers worked at a tighter screenplay.Raj Tandon makes a fine debut, and Raghuveer Yadav’s Dadu is credibly essayed. The actors, though, can’t save the tedious show.advertisementlast_img read more
