    "A space program can help us tackle some of our most urgent problems. For example, our efforts in disaster risk reduction and management will greatly benefit from a space program. Having our own satellite will make it easier for us to take high-resolution images; these images, in turn, can help us plan for and manage the effects of natural disasters. Imagine

  2. I Am A Star Wars Kid

    by , 12-18-2015 at 09:11 AM (Ink | Pen | Paper)
    With Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the seventh Star Wars film, showing in the cinemas, I see my Facebook newsfeed awash with Star Wars related posts from both friends and some advertising and promo sites. One would also see a vast number of Star Wars related memorabilia and items, such as toys (action figures, lightsabers, Millenium Falcon replicas) to fashion items such as hoodies, T-shirts and so on, and there are also movie tie-in comics and books. All this being shared by proud owners on their ...

  3. The Philippine National Space Development Program

    by , 09-10-2015 at 07:32 AM (Ink | Pen | Paper)
    A few years ago, in this blog, I wrote an entry that expresses my wish that the Philippines should have its own space agency. You can read that blog entry here:

    On September 1, 2015, the seeds of that dream have been planted. There is now a government-funded program called the National Space Development Program.

  4. Write it Down

    by , 12-31-2014 at 03:17 PM (Ink | Pen | Paper)
    (I may have written something like this before, in this blog, but I just want to express these thoughts once again)

    Before the year ends, I have a simple bit of advice to everyone who isn't doing it on a regular basis yet.

    Learn to write down your thoughts.

    You don't have to do this using the English language, you may write down your thoughts and observations in any language or dialect you are comfortable with, but do make sure you use proper punctuation ...

  5. The Parable of the Stick

    The Parable of the Stick
    By Rodion M. Herrera

    Once upon a time, two boys chanced upon a long straight stick on the river bank. The stick was quite long, almost twice as high as a person, so they decided to break it in two. However, the stick didn't exactly break in the middle, so that one of the sticks was longer than the other one. The taller boy decided to give the shorter stick to the other boy, who was shorter than him. The short boy merely smiled and shrugged. Then they ...

  6. Going CrayZ with DayZ

    by , 03-08-2014 at 10:53 PM (Ink | Pen | Paper)
    Last night my brother Ivan and I managed to find a Day Z Standalone (SA) server that had a decent ping for both of us. This was important, considering that he's living and working in KSA, and I'm here in the Philippines. For if I chose a server in Singapore or West Coast US, my ping will be low, but his will be high, and if he choses a server closer to him (say, France or Germany), then my ping will be high, but his will be low. We eventually found middle ground in a China-based server. We were ...

  7. Random Thoughts on a Gloomy Thursday Morning

    by , 02-14-2014 at 01:10 PM (Ink | Pen | Paper)
    Today, I woke up during that period of time considered to be the “ungodly hours of predawn.” Try as I might, I couldn’t bring myself to sleep. Thus, I decided to watch one of the movies I downloaded off the web last week. This movie, I believe, is a critically-acclaimed film, that tells the story of a young girl who lived in Germany during the Second World War.

    I found the plot of the film to be slightly similar to that of yet another film set in postwar Germany, called “The Reader.” ...
