Becoming dual citizens — having the best of both worlds

  WASHINGTON, DC -- Romulo A. Alejandro became a naturalized U.S. citizen in 1992, following the established legal processes. During the oath-taking, he says there was a brief twinge of sadness as he was renouncing his allegiance to the country where he was born and raised. He was reminded, he recalls, of an oration entitled "I am a Filipino and Proud to be One." However, it did not take long for him to fully realize that "I am an American and I am Proud to be One." "Becoming an American became very real when I voted for the first time as an American," Alejandro adds. "I felt then that I had a voice that counted in an election process that was not rigged. I made a consc...Keep on reading: Becoming dual citizens — having the best of both worlds.....»»

Petition vs Cayetanos’ congressional bids based on ‘shallow’ argument, says lawyer

The petition to cancel the congressional bids of Alan and Lani Cayetano over the issue on residency is based on a "shallow argument," the lawyer of the Cayetano couple said Thursday. The couple's legal counsel, George Garcia, clarified in an interview with ABS-CBN News Channel that a person can have more than one residence "at the same time" as provided by the election law and the Supreme Court. The couple, according to Garcia, are running "not because they wanted to get the best of both worlds but that's what the law allows, not because we wanted to take advantage of the law but because that is the wish of the people of Taguig." "Is the residence or domicile stated in the elect...Keep on reading: Petition vs Cayetanos’ congressional bids based on ‘shallow’ argument, says lawyer.....»»

Pinoy gymnast Carlo Yulo earns historic qualification in worlds

Eighteen year-old Filipino gymnast Carlos Yulo continues to make waves in the Federation International de Gymnastique (FIG) World Artistic Gymnastics Championships in Doha, Qatar. Yulo has qualified for the event's Individual All Around Final, and is the first Filipino to ever do so, according to GAP (Gymnastic Association of the Philippines) president Cynthia Carrion. Yulo capped off the two-day qualifying round by placing 12th overall among 292 male gymnasts, according to Carrion, and has made it to the next stage, where the top 24 advanced. The president of the Philippine gymnastics' governing body was nothing but proud of the youthful Yulo and his continuous development as a world-class athlete. "We have never in our gymnastic history ever qualified to the Individual All Around Final of any Gymnastics World Championships ever," said Carrion. "It is a difficult feat to be able to be proficient, not to mention world class in all six of the men’s events." Carrion continued "Just a few years ago he was a 2-event gymnast, competing in just floor and vault, so to raise his level in four events in a short amount of time is nothing short of amazing."  Carrion then put Yulo's incredible performance into perspective. "Not many gymnasts debut in the world championships, the youngest competitor, and make foreign press turn and notice them right away," Carrion bared. Yulo is also set to compete in the Floor event Final after placing fourth in the qualifying. .....»»
