Game of Politics

Human Rights. This is sensitive and most talked issue in the Philippines right now. This is due to allegations of human rights violations from the present government. Philippines had a history of a governement wherein human rights is not upholded and rampant violations were made because of the declaration of Martial Law. Because of this, people feared to experience the same treatment. They associate martial law with human rights violations. They even associate martial law with extrajudicial killings which is often associated with police force under the present government. 

I feel pity for all the victims of these, us. Victims in the sense that we are being used as a front for advocacies with hidden agepndas. Yes, we condone extrajudicial killings and human rights violotions. We are totally against these actions and people rally to make their vioces heard but the reality is we are used as pawns in the game of chess called the politics. 

PAWNS. They are the most weakest yet if overlooked they can be the greatest weapon if used well. Pawns are used as first line of defense. They are utilized to slowly gain enough space and pressure the opponent.to make a wrong move. This is where rallies are born. Leaders of groups have different kinds of personalities, there are some who are principled and rightious who would take a fight to the end. These people are being used by ambitious people who are aiming for power and authority, even for momentary fame. They are fueled by some persons who are working behind the scene and would like to finance whatever activities the activist group would do just to disrupt the peace and create a diversion for them to be placed at the ideal area, they are the bishops.

BISHOPS. They don’t refer to the head of a church rather as a chess piece. They focus on an area of target, and manuever the pieces to make way for when the timing is right, they would move toward their target. They are the ones who work behind the scenes. Politicians who are more ambitious and power greedy but with an introverted attitude belongs to this category.

ROOKS. They are comparable to the muscles of the queen. They are second best when it comes to power but with limited options. It is better to have it in pairs to make it more powerful. Tower is another name for it. They also are the eyes and guard of the castle. Rooks are those people who are well connected and best in guarding their allies best interest. They can compensate for the lacking queen which makes them a threat if not treated well by their masters, the queen.

KNIGHTS. They move from place to place even in closed game givem with enough space to go to. They are the trickest and most decisive pieces because one move can cause ripples of effect. They can create a multiple threat to multiple people or circumstances. They are the people who are powerful enough but tend to suppress or hide their identity or involvement. They act as spies who can easily move undetected or not considered as a threat until it’s too late.

QUEEN. This is the powerful figure in the game. Its presence can determine victory over the opponent. Yet they can be blinded by power itself. One who is believed to be irreplacable becomes dispensible and be sacrificed for nothing. They is the strongest yet they can be a liability if not used properly. They are the type of people who lead the group and have the greatest authority bested upon yet can be easily put down if th need arise. They only stand because of their image and sympathy of the people. They are the heart of the game or the darling of the crowd.

KING. He only serves as a backbone of the game. The main goal and public figure. They can either hold the pieces together towards victory or defeat. The most guarded yet the most vulnerable. The most powerful yet with limited resources and space. They usually can’t control what happened but theycan dictate the tempo of the game. They are the people who have the same characteristics as that of the king. 

We have these people in our society and their using the advocacies, stories and voices of ordinary people to manipulate and fight their battles against their opponents. 

In the end we are all pitiful people who are used and violated without our knowledge. We are exploited without our consent. 

Are we still going to play the game of Politics as pawns? Do we still wanted to be used as Pawns? Are we allowing others to used us as weapons? 

If not, then let’s criticise and create a solution. Change doesn’t only occur if we pick on the little things, good or bad. Change occur because of an action and a solution. So let’s do our part by giving solutions to our country’s problem rather than talking bad things about it.

Stand as One

The South East Asian Countries stand side by side as they face the challenges being thrown at them. Now, more than ever, they strengthen their bond through treaties and activities promoting improvement and commaraderies among nations. 

The South East Asian Games or known as SEA Games was developed with the idea of socializing and exhibiting the talents of each country when in comes to sports. A friendly competition among nations through sports is ebeing done every 2 years. 
The Philippines will be holding the 2019 or the 30th SEA GAMES as the Malaysia is currenting hosting the 2017 SEA GAMES.

Finals Series

With two games done in a best of four series of the NBA Finals between Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers, the public is now tensed on how the Cavaliers will come back from a deficit. 

Golden State emerged victorious after the first game match up with the Cavs. In their second game, the Warriors proved that they can take the Cleveland with a convincing victory. 

Now that the game three is on the Cavaliers home court, will the Cleveland team bring down the Warriors and achieved their first win of the series?Will the Warriors continue to dominate the series with another will?

One thing is for sure the Finals will be an exciting experience for both teams and fans.

Climate Change

Climate change started years ago and it is still happening now. There were many actions taken by the World Health Organization and United Nations in creating a sustainable solutions. 

Recently, the nations of the world gathered in Paris to address the issue about climate change. They emphasized that the effects were affecting our health.

We are no spared from the effects of Climate change. It is a long standing problem that we must give attention.

Death toll due to environmental causes is about 23% of the global population. Most of the deaths came from Southeast Asian Region followed by Western Pacific Region and African Region. These areas have more developing countries than developed ones which only shows that the effects of climate change in developing countries are devastating than the first class nations.

It is just unfair because of the fact that most developed nations where much higher polutions came from contributing the most to climate change doesn’t felt the effects of their doing rather the poor and vulnerable countries suffers in their behalfs. 

Hoping that this will be an eye opener for countries which have polutants greater than most of the countries to unite and do something about the polutions problems in their own countries.

Beyond: K-Drama

Ruler of the Mask is a masterpiece. The storyline is just like any other traditional drama but what facinates me the most is the character development and the pace of the story. 

It’s so natural and not forced on how the pace of the story goes which shows that the writers, producers and directors did a great job. The drama showed that every moment is essential and you have to watch every scene because you might miss something if you didn’t that is what this drama is giving me.

Kudos to the actors and actresses who did a great job in portraying each character. It’s not over the top kind of acting or an overkill type but a just amount of emotions needed to touch the viewers hearts and it did. I like the way each characters get to develop at the same time. With the first 2 episodes so far, the viewers got the gist of what will happen but still be amazed on how the story unfolds. 

It’s hard to compare this to other traditional drama since they all have their own strong points but so far Ruler of the Mask is one of those on the top of the list. I’m hoping to see more of this and keep up the amazing work. Fighting.
