‘Build roads now, pay lot owners later’

(Last of three parts) LUCENA CITY --- A bypass in Sariaya town, Quezon province, intended to ease traffic on Maharlika Highway should have been opened in 2017, but development of the project has dragged beyond the deadline because the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) remains grappling with right of way problems.

But as in other road projects in Luzon, the 7.2-kilometer, P467-million Sariaya bypass began construction without first settling right of way. Funds were initially allocated for the project in 2014, but none of the more...Keep on reading: ‘Build roads now, pay lot owners later’.....»»

How hypertension and diabetes can lead to dementia

This week, we're commemorating the first death anniversary of Dr. Ramon F. Abarquez Jr., an icon of cardiology in the Philippines. He was 89 when he died, and his mind remained sharp to the end.

When he knew he was down to his last banked article, he told me he'd submit another one. I reminded him he needed complete rest. He replied, "I told you I won't miss a column for as long as I'm alive." ...Keep on reading: How hypertension and diabetes can lead to dementia.....»»

Pork barrel scam mastermind points to Revilla acquittal in her appeal
