3 killed as sports car slams into truck in Bacolod City

BACOLOD CITY – A businessman and his two companions succumbed to severe injuries when their Ford Mustang crashed into a 10-wheeler truck loaded with sugarcane along Circumferential Road in Barangay Villamonte here early Tuesday. Three persons were killed when a Ford Mustang hit a 10-wheeler truck loaded with sugarcane along Circumferential road in Barangay Villamonte, Bacolod City Tuesday. (Photo courtesy of Bacolod City Police Office / MANILA BULLETIN) Killed in the accident were businessman Stanley Flores, and his passengers Welton Porcel and Mark John Porcel, a nephew. They were all residents of Barangay Villamonte, according to the police. Police Station 4 Head Maj. Charles Gever said Flores was behind the wheel of the speeding Mustang, and was tailing the truck driven by Michael Mejica, 42, and of Kabankalan City, Negros Occidental, when the car crashed into the much larger vehicle. The car smashed into the truck’s rear end, and even went under it, pinning down Flores and his companions. Gever said the victims died instantly. The accident happened around 1 a.m. Gever said Mejica thought his tire exploded at the time of the crash. But when he went down the truck to check, he discovered the Mustang already pinned down under the vehicle. Gever said they could not yet tell what really caused the accident, as investigation was ongoing as of press time. He said Mejica was under police custody, and will be released from detention if no charges will be filed against him within the reglementary period......»»

Climate change spurs doubling of disasters since 2000: UN

Climate change is largely to blame for a near doubling of natural disasters in the past 20 years, the United Nations said on Monday. The UN Office for Disaster Risk Reduction said 7,348 major disaster events had occurred between 2000 and 2019, claiming 1.23 lives, affecting 4.2 billion people and costing the global economy some $2.97 trillion. The figure far outstrips the 4,212 major natural disasters recorded between 1980 and 1999, the UN office said in a new report entitled “The Human Cost of Disasters 2000-2019”. The sharp increase was largely attributable to a rise in climate-related disasters, including extreme weather events like floods, drought and storms, the report said. Extreme heat is proving especially deadly. “We are wilfully destructive,” UNDRR chief Mami Mizutori told reporters in a virtual briefing. “That is the only conclusion one can come to when reviewing disaster events over the last 20 years.” She accused governments of not doing enough to prevent climate hazards and called for better preparation for looming disasters.  ‘Uphill battle’“The odds are being stacked against us when we fail to act on science and early warnings to invest in prevention, climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction,” she said. The report did not touch on biological hazards and disease-related disasters like the coronavirus pandemic, which has killed over one million people and infected over 37 million in the past nine months. But Mizutori suggested coronavirus was “the latest proof that political and business leaders are yet to tune in to the world around them”. Monday’s report showed 6,681 climate-linked events had been recorded since the turn of the century, up from 3,656 during the previous 20-year-period. While major floods had more than doubled to 3,254, there had been 2,034 major storms up from 1,457 in the prior period. Mizutori said public health authorities and rescue workers were “fighting an uphill battle against an ever-rising tide of extreme weather events”. While better preparedness and early warning systems had helped bring down the number of deaths in many natural disaster settings, she warned that “more people are being affected by the expanding climate emergency”. Deadliest disasterMonday’s report relied on statistics from the Emergency Events Database, which records all disasters that kill 10 or more people, affect 100 or more people or result in a state of emergency declaration. The data showed that Asia has suffered the highest number of disasters in the past 20 years with 3,068 such events, followed by the Americas with 1,756 and Africa with 1,192. In terms of affected countries, China topped the list with 577 events followed by the United States with 467. While a warming climate appeared to be driving the number and severity of such disasters, there had also been an increase in geophysical events like earthquakes and tsunamis that are not related to climate but are particularly deadly. The deadliest single disaster in the past 20 years was the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, with 226,400 deaths, followed by the Haiti earthquake in 2010, which claimed some 222,000 lives......»»

Covid-19 reinfection casts doubt on virus immunity: study

Covid-19 patients may experience more severe symptoms the second time they are infected, according to research released Tuesday confirming it is possible to catch the potentially deadly disease more than once. A study published in The Lancet Infectious Diseases journal charts the first confirmed case of Covid-19 reinfection in the United States — the country worst hit by the pandemic — and indicates that exposure to the virus may not guarantee future immunity. The patient, a 25-year-old Nevada man, was infected with two distinct variants of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes Covid-19, within a 48-day time frame. The second infection was more severe than the first, resulting in the patient being hospitalised with oxygen support. The paper noted four other cases of reinfection confirmed globally, with one patient each in Belgium, the Netherlands, Hong Kong and Ecuador. Experts said the prospect of reinfection could have a profound impact on how the world battles through the pandemic. In particular, it could influence the hunt for a vaccine — the currently Holy Grail of pharmaceutical research. “The possibility of reinfections could have significant implications for our understanding of Covid-19 immunity, especially in the absence of an effective vaccine,” said Mark Pandori, for the Nevada State Public Health Laboratory and lead study author. “We need more research to understand how long immunity may last for people exposed to SARS-CoV-2 and why some of these second infections, while rare, are presenting as more severe.” Waning immunity?Vaccines work by triggering the body’s natural immune response to a certain pathogen, arming it with antibodies it to fight off future waves of infection. But it is not at all clear how long Covid-19 antibodies last. For some diseases, such as measles, infection confers lifelong immunity. For other pathogens, immunity may be fleeting at best. The authors said the US patient could have been exposed to a very high dose of the virus the second time around, triggering a more acute reaction. Alternatively, it may have been a more virulent strain of the virus. Another hypothesis is a mechanism known as antibody dependent enhancement — that is, when antibodies actually make subsequent infections worse, such as with dengue fever. The researchers pointed out that reinfection of any kind remains rare, with only a handful of confirmed cases out of tens of millions of Covid-19 infections globally. However, since many cases are asymptomatic and therefore unlikely to have tested positive initially, it may be impossible to know if a given Covid-19 case is the first or second infection. In a linked comment to The Lancet paper, Akiko Iwasaka, a professor of Immunobiology and Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology at Yale University, said the findings could impact public health measures. “As more cases of reinfection surface, the scientific community will have the opportunity to understand better the correlates of protection and how frequently natural infections with SARS-CoV-2 induce that level of immunity,” she said. “This information is key to understanding which vaccines are capable of crossing that threshold to confer individual and herd immunity,” added Iwasaka, who was not involved in the study......»»

Believe it or not: Rival gangs vow to maintain peace inside Bilibid

Leaders of rival gang Sigue Sigue Sputnik and Sigue Sigue Commando vowed to end their squabble and maintain peace among their members. (BuCor / MANILA BULLETIN) They made the assurance through a conversation with Bureau of Corrections (BuCor) Director General Gerald Bantag on Monday during a joint search operation or Oplan Galugad at the New Bilibid Prison (NBP) in Muntinlupa City. BuCor said that both parties gave their assurance that the brawl will never happen again. Members of BuCor NBP, Muntinlupa City Police, Bureau of Jail Management and Penology, Philippine National Police – Special Action Force, and National Capital Region Regional Mobile Force Battalion conducted the search operation NBP Quadrant 4 (Quadrant East – Bldg. 5) and Quadrant 3 (Quadrant South – Bldg. 8). BuCor said that the search operation sustains the preventive and preemptive efforts to halt the violence among the Persons Deprived of Liberty (PDLs) inside the NBP. It added that Building 5 and Building 8 including its surrounding areas were targeted as persistent intelligence reports continue to come in that bladed weapons are being strategically stored in these areas to be used as weapons by members of the two rival groups. More than 400 confiscated prohibited items of bladed weapons and blunt instruments were discovered in various corners and compartments of PDLs’ cells, temporary shelters and even those hidden or buried in the ground. “This search operation is a strong message delivered to these two groups creating violations and distraction inside the prison camp that such criminal behaviors and activities need to be stopped at all cost,” BuCor said. “This search operation will be sustained until such violent behaviors subside and normalcy return to the prison camp,” it added. BuCor expressed gratitude to the PNP especially for the support from NCRPO Regional Director Debold Sinas. They lent anti ballistics shields and Civil Disturbance Management (CDM) shields to the BuCor that tremendously boosted the confidence of its personnel in accomplishing their mission. The PNP-SAF elements also provided perimeter security and standby force during the entire search operation......»»

Two Visayan solons: Cayetano should recognize Velasco’s election, should step down

Two Visayan lawmakers said Tuesday (Oct. 13) Speaker Alan Peter Cayetano should step down, given that the majority of the 299-man Lower Chamber already gave their support to Marinduque lone District Rep. Lord Allan Velasco as their new Speaker. Cebu City 2nd District Rep.  Rodrigo Abellanosa, and Negros Oriental 2nd District Rep. Manuel Sagarbarria said Cayetano should accept the fact that Velasco has the backing of the majority of their colleagues. “The proceedings, especially the voting are well-documented and can stand scrutiny, and even until now the number of members supporting LAV (Lord Allan Velasco) continues to grow,” Abellanosa said in a Viber message. “APC (Alan Peter Cayetano) might end up with only a handful for him if he insists he still has the number,” he said. On Monday, Oct. 12, Velasco was elected as the Speaker by 186 lawmakers in an assembly held at the Celebrity Sports Plaza in Quezon City. Cayetano questioned such proceedings, saying that it was a “fake session.” Sagarbarria pressed on Cayetano to relinquish his post. “Cayetano should step down and honor the 15-21 agreement,” he said. Under the term-sharing agreement endorsed by President Duterte, Cayetano will serve as Speaker for the first 15 months of the 18th Congress or in October and will step down by the end of this period to allow Velasco to take over during the last 21 months. When asked on calls to formally elect the new Speaker in today’s plenary session, Sagarbarria, chairperson of the House Special panel on West Philippine Sea, said there is no need to conduct another election since Velasco got the support of 186 congressmen. The House leader said he will join today’s special session “with the new Speaker,” referring to Velasco. The House leader said as far as he is concerned, the new Speaker has been elected and that Cayetano has to give way to Velasco.  .....»»
