Washington Post: Anti-planking act proposed in Philippines after people plank in Manila streets
At BlogPost, we’ve questioned the point of a game in which a person lies down as stiff as a board in weird and sometimes dangerous locations. We’ve pointed to planking’s dubious connections to the slave trade. And we’ve even alleged that with the arrival of owling, batting andhorse-maning, planking is just no longer cool.
But now, there’s some serious weight being thrown against planking, and it’s happening in the Philippines, where Quezon City representative Winston Castelo has filed a bill called the “Anti-Planking Act of 2011.”

Before it’s too late: the world’s most endangered sights
Rice terraces, Cordilleras, Philippines
Rice farming defines Asian civilisation and the terraces of the Philippine Cordilleras, on the northern island of Luzon, are a 2000-year-old icon of agricultural heritage. Known as the ‘eighth wonder of the world’, the  man-made terraces cling to impossibly steep valleys and meld seamlessly with nature’s verdant backdrop. Symbolic of sacred folklore and ingenuity, many terraces are now neglected as the modern world lures young farmers to the city, and the site is ill-equipped for large numbers of visitors.

Language, learning, identity, privilege

Filipino is the “language of the streets” – “how you spoke to the tindera when you went to the tindahan, what you used to tell your katulong that you had an utos, and how you texted manong when you needed sundo na.”

These lines, found in a “Manila Bulletin” column now circulating on social media, aroused sentiments that champion the Filipino language Thursday as the nation winds down its commemoration of August as the National Language Month.

James Soriano, who wrote the column titled “Language, Learning, Identity, Privilege,” contextualized his piece in his experience of learning English as his “mother language.” Soriano said he was required to speak English at home, had all his books in English, and even prayed in English.

“Filipino, on the other hand, was always the ‘other’ subject — almost a special subject like PE or Home Economics, except that it was graded the same way as Science, Math, Religion, and English,” he said in his column originally posted Wednesday.

“My classmates and I used to complain about Filipino all the time. Filipino was a chore, like washing the dishes; it was not the language of learning. It was the language we used to speak to the people who washed our dishes,” Soriano added. - GMANews.TV

Are You Ready for a Zombie Apocalypse?

If you find the idea of a zombie invasion absurd, wait until you feast your eyes on the newest, most-awaited, and one-of-a-kind movie this generation.

Award-winning local film-makers behind the critically-acclaimed movies Magnifico, Anak, Endo and Ang Pagdadalaga ni Maximo Oliveros came out with what could possibly be an epic scare into one hilarious movie.

Director-Writer Jade Castro, Producer-Writer Raymond Lee, and Writer Michiko Yamamoto once again took a stab at a new film genre which gave birth to Zombadings 1: Patayin sa Shokot si Remington. “(This is) a coming of age story; a coming together of friends and family story and a coming of Zombadings story,” explains Castro.

The Stereotypical Katipunero
Since Historians are still arguing when and where the first sounds of the Revolution are heard (Aug 24 vs Aug 26, Pugadlawin vs Balintawak), to commemorate the event, the government designated the National Heroes Day in the last Sunday of August.
Do you know why this is the stereotypical Katipunero suit? Nick Joaquin offers us a good insight.
Checkpoints are being established in and out of the Manila Area when Katipunan was discovered during the 19th of August. Bonifacio directed his followers to gather in Caloocan in the 24th of August, since there are checkpoints, the Katipuneros told the guards that they are going to the feast of San Bartolome de Malabon celebrated during August 24.
San Bartolome de Malabon is an image of Saint Bartholomew the Apostle, wearing red and white and brandishing a bolo, and pilgrims to the feast wear the same colors along with a bolo.
