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.

Responsible Journalism

I’ve recently read a newspaper and there is one article that caught my attention. The article is mainly about the comments on President Dueterte war on drugs and  what a hell to pay after the end of the president’s term. 

I respect the opinion of the writer in that matter but I believe that he should never speak ill of persons who were victims of circumstances. It is not on the amount of rape victims and even drug addicts there are, the fact that these things are happening creating these victims who are humans too and  should get the respect they deserve.

This is where the problem lies. The public has judging eyes on people without knowing the facts. It is the reason why cases of rape and addiction are underreported. In some situations, these victims refuse to seek any medical, psychiatric and social help thay can get because of the fear of being judged by others. These things happen often than what the public think and what the media publishes. 

I can’t blame the author for not knowing these because I believe that media also plays a big part on his perception about things. We all lived in an accessible information era where media of various forms are the most influential tools. Little of the published articles are about educating the public and the bulk came from negative criticism and unfactual ones. 

It is a challeged to the journalists, publishers and media practitioners to give quality articles that aim to educate people and not persecute then, to deliver factual and unbiased reports involving the parties involved and not just one, to investigate thoroughly about the information gathered and not to hastlily put it into main stream media and lastly to be accountable and fair to the actions they’ve made. 

As a citizen of the Philippines, I wanted to be informed, educate and empowered as I read all the news regarding my country. This doesn’t mean that only the good things should be published or only the bad but a combination of both to let us, the people, decide on where to stand regarding the issue.

We should all promote responsible and unbiased journalism.

 

Album:TWICE

I’ve been following this girl group called TWICE since their Sixteen days. I’ve watched them grow into what they are today. I also watched my roommate fell in love with these girls to the point that she’ll buy their albums and lightsticks to support these girls. I too support them but I’m in the side to thriftiness when it comes to money matters. 

Whenever the merchandized bought by my roommate arrives, she share it with me and I’m grateful for it. We both enjoyed the music that Twice made.
