Airspace around Taal Volcano remains dangerous

The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS) on Sunday warned about the danger of flying around the airspace of Taal Volcano. Phivolcs said aviation authorities “must advise pilots to avoid the airspace around Taal Volcano as airborne ash and ballistic fragments from the eruption column pose hazards to aircraft.” The statement added that the […] The post Airspace around Taal Volcano remains dangerous appeared first on Daily Tribune......»»

STATEMENT OF ABS-CBN ON OSG’S QUO WARRANTO PETITION: WE DID NOT VIOLATE THE LAW

The Office of the Solicitor General’s filing of a quo warranto case against ABS-CBN on alleged violations of its franchise appears to be an effort to shut down ABS-CBN to the serious prejudice of millions of Filipinos who rely on the network for news, entertainment and public service.   These allegations cited by the Office of the Solicitor General in his press statement are without merit. ABS-CBN complies with all pertinent laws governing its franchise and has secured all necessary government and regulatory approvals for its business operations.   (1)   All our broadcast offerings, including KBO, have received the necessary government and regulatory approvals and are not prohibited by our franchise.    (2)   ABS-CBN Holdings’ Philippine Deposit Receipts or PDRs were evaluated and approved by the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Philippine Stock Exchange prior to its public offering. These are the same instruments used by other broadcast companies to raise capital for the improvement of services.   (3)   The ownership of ABS-CBN in ABS-CBN Convergence was undertaken under the same law and structures that have been utilized by other telecommunications companies. These are transfers that are approved under the Public Telecommunications Policy Act and are fully compliant with law.    We reiterate that everything we do is in accordance with the law. We did not violate the law. This case appears to be an attempt to deprive Filipinos of the services of ABS-CBN.   KBO remains one of the cheapest forms of entertainment that we can provide to the public. The capital we have raised from the PDRs has enabled us to provide services to nearly 90 percent of the Philippines and to our OFW’s all over the world. Our work with ABS-CBN Convergence supports the government policy of finding ways to bring down the cost of internet access.   The Senate, the House of Representatives, and the Executive Branch have assured the public that our franchise will be allowed to go through the proper renewal process in a fair manner. To that end, the filing of the quo warranto case is ill-timed given that Congress has already resumed its session.   We remain committed to our mission to serve the Filipino people especially at this time when millions of Filipinos rely on our services in delivering information such as the 2019 NCoV ARD, the developments in the Middle East, and updates on Taal Volcano situation as they relate to our countrymen.    .....»»

ONE Championship reaches out to victims of Taal Volcano eruption

ONE Championship was quick to extend a helping hand to those who were affected by the recent eruption of the Taal Volcano in the province of Batangas on 12 January. The Home Of Martial Arts distributed 1,000 shirts to those who were displaced by the calamity, which has directly affected more than 100,000 people in the provinces of Batangas, Cavite, Laguna, and some parts of Metro Manila.  The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS) has already raised the alert level to four, saying that a hazardous eruption remains imminent even today.    ONE athletes have also reached out to their compatriots, encouraging their fellow Filipinos to stay strong amid the trying times. “To all my countrymen in Taal, stay safe and I know that you guys can go through this. I’ll always pray for them and I expect them to rise above it, get back what they lost,” Team Lakay head coach Mark Sangiao said.  Like his head coach, former ONE Flyweight World Champion Geje “Gravity” Eustaquio showed great concern with the situation, and he promises that help is on the way.  “It's not our first time to encounter this situation, we were tested for how many times and we always end up on top, still. Filipinos have the warrior spirit in them and that is hard to conquer,” Eustaquio said. “Don’t worry we will face this test as a team, as a nation, and as a family. Support is coming, and we got your back in different ways. We pray for you our dear brothers and sisters. Never give up.”  As the dust settles and the tens of thousands of people rebuild their lives, on 31 January the Philippines will prove to the world their World Champion spirit. They will play host to ONE Championship’s ONE: FIRE & FURY at the Mall Of Asia Arena in Manila......»»
