Boboto Ka Pa Ba?

Page was viewed times


Mula sa ating mga munting mundo hanggang sa malawak na lipunan ay mga pangalan nila ang ating nakikita. Mga kulay at simbolo nila ang pilit na iniuukit sa ating mga kaisipan. Ang mga jingle at tugtugin nila ang paulit-ulit na isinasaksak sa ating mga tenga.
Ang lahat ng ito ay may katumbas na HALAGA.
MAGKANO kaya ang sinusunog na salapi ng mga nais maglingkod sa bayan? Imprenta, TV exposure, gastusin para sa makinarya at iba pa. MILYON? BILYON? Depende sa posisyon.
Kaya pala hindi maalis na isipin na ang mga may posisyon sa gobyerno ay para lang sa mga “matatalinong” may perang susunugin. O hindi kaya mas bagay kung ihahambing sa sugarol na mamumuhunan; kapag nanalo jackpot sa mga kontrata at mahihiwagang proyekto.
Ang istorya ng kahirapan ay luma na, matagal na rin nating alam ang kaugnayan nito sa kurapsyon at pagnanakaw sa kaban ng bayan.
Kaya’t kahit anong pa-cute ng mga tinamaan ng lintek na kandidato, lalo na ang mga dati nang nakaupo at matagal nang nanunungkulan; mga nek-nek nyo!
Magmula pa noong panahon ng lola ng lola ng lola natin ay nangangako na ang mga hinayupak na ‘yan ngunit hanggang ngayon ay talamak pa rin ang kahirapan; laganap pa rin ang kagutuman sa maraming lugar ng kapuluan. Walang trabaho ang malawak na mamamayan. Tuloy-tuloy ang pagkasira ng kalikasan at lumalala pa ang kawalan ng panlipunang hustisya.
Kailan kaya huling gumalaw ang suweldo ng manggagawa? Ilang dekada na ba ang repormang agraryo? Bakit patuloy na tumataas ang mga batayang bilihin? Panay ang kolekta ng buwis sa maliit pero panay pagbibigay ng tax holiday sa malalaking korporasyon at pag-aalis ng mga taripa sa imported na produkto at napakarami pang isyu.
WALANG BAGO SA MGA PANGAKO AT WALANG MAKABULUHANG NAGAWA PARA PROTEKSYUNAN ANG MARHINALISADO AT MALIIT.
KUNG AKO’Y BOBOTO WALA AKONG PAGPIPILIAN KUNDI ANG MGA PULITIKONG INUGAT NA SA GOBYERNO, PERSONALIDAD AT MGA PAMILYANG MAY PUHUNAN AT GRUPO NG MGA UHAW SA KAPANGYARIHAN.
BUKOD SA MGA PANGALAN NG MGA KANDIDATO AY MAY OPSYON PA TAYO….BOYKOT ANG TAWAG NG IBA DITO.
ANG HINDI NATIN PAGBOTO AY SIMBOLO NG PROTESTA SA SISTEMA NG PULITIKA NA KONTROLADO NG MAYAYAMAN.
ANG PAGTUTOL NATIN NA MABILANG AY SIMBOLO NG TUMATAAS NA KAMULATAN NATIN LABAN SA SISTEMANG KUNG SAAN IILAN LANG ANG GUMAGAWA NG DESISYON.
Ang pagtanggi nating lumahok sa sistemang dominado ng maiimpluwensya at may malaking interes ay tahimik na protesta laban sa sistema. Hindi tayo nangangarap na mababago o mapapahinto nito ang eleksyon, mas dapat nating isaisip na ang pagtakwil sa balota sa ganitong klaseng sistema ay isa ring pagsasabuhay ng karapatan.
KARAPATAN DIN NATING TUMUTOL SA SISTEMANG AYAW NATIN! KARAPATAN NA BAGUHIN ANG SISTEMANG LALONG NAGLULUGMOK SA ATIN SA KAHIRAPAN.
SA ISANG DEMOKRATIKONG LIPUNAN, ANG MAMAMAYAN AY HINDI TAGA-PILI NG LIDER BAGKUS PINAGMUMULAN NG IDEYA AT KARANASAN NA SIYANG BATAYAN SA PAGLIKHA NG MGA BATAS AT POLISIYA.

Page was viewed times

Leg 10 (Germany → Scotland, UK)
For the roadblock in Scotland, teams had to play bagpipes with marching pipers (this picture is located in Edinburgh).

  •  Berlin (Berlin Tegel Airport) to Edinburgh, Scotland , United Kingdom  (Edinburgh Airport)
  • Longniddry, East Lothian (Gosford House) 
  • Edinburgh (Craigmillar Castle)
  •   Edinburgh (Duddingston)
  • Edinburgh (Duddingston – Duddingston Kirk) 
  • Edinburgh (Old Town – Niddry Street South) 

For this Leg's Roadblock, one team member had to dress in the uniform of the Royal Scots regiment and learn to play a drone on a set of bagpipes while marching with the Royal Scots pipers in Gosford House's Marble Room for two minutes. When the bagpipes instructor was pleased with their performance, he would award them their next clue. For the Speed Bump, Mona & Beth had to play a game of Skittles, a traditional British form of ten-pin bowling. Once they both managed to score a "floorer" (a strike) they would receive their next clue. In this Leg's Detour, teams had to choose between Tasty Puddin' or Whiskey Rollin'. In Tasty Puddin', teams travelled to the Sheep Heid Inn in Duddingston where they had to prepare haggis with oatmeal and ox intestine, in the presence of a Robert Burns impersonator who recited Burns' poem "Address to a Haggis". Once they each prepared four portions of haggis and had a taste of one, they would be given the next clue. In Whiskey Rollin', teams rolled eight barrels of Scotch whisky up a slope, delivering them to a party. Once they delivered all eight barrels, a Scottish country dancer would give them their next clue.

Additional tasks

  • Upon landing in Edinburgh, teams used a Ford Fiesta to drive themselves to their first Route Marker at Gosford House.
  • At Craigmillar Castle, teams had to search the castle's fireplaces to find their next clue.

Survivor Caramoan (Episode 11)

Page was viewed times

Episode 11: "Come Over to the Dark Side"
Reward Challenge: Instead of a Reward Challenge, a Survivor Auction was held. Items won were the following:
  • Andrea -Spaghetti and meatballs with garlic bread (mystery item), traded for bag of beans and rice for whole tribe; letter from home
  • Brenda -Pig brains (mystery item); letter from home
  • Cochran - Advantage at Immunity Challenge; letter from home
  • Dawn Roasted chicken
  • Eddie - Letter from home; bowl of peanut butter to be shared with entire tribe for 60 seconds (mystery item)
  • Erik - Letter from home
  • Malcolm - Beer, nuts, and pretzels; a clue to the Hidden Immunity Idol (mystery item)
  • Reynold - One slice of pizza (mystery item); letter from home
  • Sherri - Rest of the pizza Reynold purchased

Immunity Challenge: With one hand, the castaways would hang on to a rope with several knots tied into it. The rope would be tied to one end of a heavy log. The other end of the log would be connected to a pivot point on a platform that the castaways would stand on. The castaways would start at the knot closest to the end of the log. Every five minutes, they would change hands and move one knot further down the rope. This would increase the angle of the log at the pivot point and increase the weight that the castaways would have to hold. The castaway who held on to the rope the longest would win.

With Phillip out of the game, Erik saw his departure as an opportunity to make a move while Cochran and Brenda were shocked and uncertain about their futures. Day 29's tree mail announced the Survivor Auction. Everybody purchased at least one item, with Malcolm and Cochran being the biggest winners by purchasing a clue to the Hidden Immunity Idol and an advantage at the Immunity Challenge, respectively. The next day, Andrea followed Malcolm all day to prevent him from finding the Hidden Immunity Idol. At the Immunity Challenge, Cochran's advantage was revealed to be that any time during the challenge, he could move up two knots on the rope. He used this advantage to ultimately defeat Eddie and take his second Individual Immunity. Back at camp, Malcolm tried to get Sherri to flip and join the Three Amigos alliance and promising to take her to the final three. Meanwhile, Reynold tried to get Erik to flip. But when the vote came at Tribal Council, Sherri and Erik stuck to their alliance and the vote was split three votes a piece to Andrea, Malcolm, and Reynold. On the revote, the tally was unanimous and Malcolm was sent to the jury by a vote of 6-0-0.

Leg 9 (Switzerland → Germany)
Teams BASE jumped off of the Park Inn, Berlin's tallest building.

  •  Interlaken (Interlaken West railway station) to Basel (Basel SBB railway station)
  •  Basel (EuroAirport Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg) to Dresden, Germany  (Dresden Airport)
  • Dresden (Saxon State Ministry and Finance (German))
  • Berlin (Brandenburg Gate)
  • Berlin (Park Inn Berlin)
  •  Berlin (Deutsches Technikmuseum or Alexanderplatz and Buchstabenmuseum (German))
  • Berlin (Salon Zur Wilden Renate) 
  • Berlin (Kurfürstendamm – Joachimstaler Platz) 

In this Leg's Detour, teams had to choose between Train Trials or Font Follies. In Train Trials, teams drove themselves to the Deutsches Technikmuseum where they had to build a model train track circuit using all of the provided pieces in such a way that the circuit fit on a provided platform. Once the train made one full lap on the circuit without falling apart, derailing, or hitting any pieces of scenery, the conductor would give them their next clue. In Font Follies, teams had to travel to Alexanderplatz, pick up two large neon alphabet letters, and transport them on foot to the Buchstabenmuseum. Once they arrived at the museum with two intact letters, the museum curator would give them their next clue. For this Leg's Roadblock, one team member had to answer a question – "Who said 'Ich bin ein Berliner'"? (John F. Kennedy) – and then enter a labyrinth located beneath a nightclub in old East Berlin, searching for the white room that held their next clue on its walls.

Additional tasks
  • At the Saxon State Ministry and Finance, teams had to pick up a Ford Fusion and answer three questions asked on the MyFord Touch system to find out their next destination: (1) Who said "tear down this wall"? (Ronald Reagan); (2) Who did he say it to? (Mikhail Gorbachev); and (3) Where did President Reagan say it? (the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin).
  • At the Park Inn Berlin, both team members had to BASE jump from the top of the building before receiving their next clue from the jump master.

Episode 10: "Zipping Over the Cuckoo’s Nest"
Reward Challenge: The tribe would be divided into two teams of five. One at a time, the teams would race through an obstacle course of balance beams, a water slide, and a mud pit. They would then retrieve a bag of balls in the mud and cross a pit full of rice. Once five bags were retrieved, all of the team members would untie the bags and shoot the balls into a basket. The first team to shoot all twelve of their balls into the basket would win.

Reward: A trip to a resort and lunch.

Immunity Challenge: Competing in two heats of five, the castaways would race across a platform, dive into the ocean, swim under the platform with the aid of a rope, climb back up onto the platform, retrieve a ring and put it on a post on the other side of the platform. They would have to complete two laps of this course. The first two castaways to finish their heat would move on the the final round. In the final round, the castaways would have to complete five laps on the course to win.

When the tribe returned to camp after Tribal Council, the Stealth R Us alliance went off to have a private conversation and left Eddie, Malcolm, and Reynold back at the camp. The Stealth R Us alliance agreed they could now freely vote out any of the three as they had no Hidden Immunity Idol, but unbeknownst to them, Malcolm still had one. While off at the lagoon on day 26, Dawn had a major breakdown when she accidentally lost her retainer. She yelled for Brenda to come help her, and Brenda dove down into the lagoon and found the retainer. The two formed a sympathetic bond after the incident with Brenda saying that she was solidly behind Dawn. At the Reward Challenge, the team of Cochran, Dawn, Erik, Phillip, and Reynold easily defeated the team of Andrea, Brenda, Eddie, Malcolm, and Sherri. The next day, Dawn continued to unravel as she was sure that Andrea would turn against the Stealth R Us alliance and blindside her at the next Tribal Council. Her paranoia made Cochran and Phillip concerned, but things turned around the next day after Dawn got some sleep. The Stealth R Us alliance agreed to split their vote 4–3 against Reynold and Malcolm just in case one of them had a Hidden Immunity Idol. At the Immunity Challenge, Reynold and Andrea won their heat over Cochran, Dawn, and Sherri. Before the second heat was to be run, Phillip said that he was opting out of the challenge due to the underwater stage of the challenge reminding him of a childhood incident. With the second heat down to four, Malcolm won the heat and Eddie should have joined him, but he missed the post with his second ring, allowing Brenda to join the final round. In the final round, it was neck and neck until the end where Reynold defeated Malcolm. With Reynold's win spoiling the Stealth R Us voting plan, they switched to a vote split between Eddie and Malcolm. But their plans were further spoiled when Malcolm found a Hidden Immunity Idol in full view of Andrea, Dawn, and Eddie. The Stealth R Us alliance decided to stick with the split vote plan.

At Tribal Council, Eddie thought he was sure to go home, but the Stealth R Us alliance was stunned when Malcolm pulled out his second Hidden Immunity Idol and gave it to Eddie. There was a lot of whispering among the alliance as they tried to figure out how they were going to vote now that all three outsiders had immunity. Malcolm announced that his "Three Amigos" of himself, Eddie, and Reynold were going to vote for Phillip, due to the fact he was sucking the life out of the game, labelling Phillip a "Fun-sponge". Phillip told his alliance that they should continue their original split voting plan just in case Eddie and Malcolm did not play their Idols. But when the vote came, they did play them. Everybody in the Stealth R Us alliance except Erik kept to the split vote plan, leaving their votes discarded. The "Three Amigos" kept their word about voting for Phillip and he became the second member of the jury by a vote of 4–0–0.

Leg 8 (Botswana → Switzerland)
In Switzerland, teams visited the Eiger, traveling up to its peak and traversing its famous north face during the Roadblock.

  •  Maun (Maun Airport) to Zurich, Switzerland  (Zurich Airport)
  •  Zurich (Zurich Airport railway station) to Grindelwald (Grindelwald railway station)
  • Grindelwald (Kirche Grindelwald)
  •  Grindelwald (Grindelwald railway station) to Kleine Scheidegg (Kleine Scheidegg railway station)
  • Kleine Scheidegg (Hotel Bellevue des Alpes)
  •  Kleine Scheidegg (Kleine Scheidegg railway station) to Jungfraujoch (Jungfraujoch railway station)
  • Jungfraujoch (Sphinx Observatory)
  •  Jungfraujoch (Jungfraujoch railway station) to the Eiger (Eigerwand railway station)
  •  Eiger (North Face)
  •  Eiger (Eigerwand railway station) to Grund (Grindelwald Grund railway station)
  • Grund (Lütschine Brüggli Bridge)
  • Grindelwald (Bodmi Snowboard and Ski School) 

In this Leg's Roadblock, teams made their way to Eigerwand railway station's observation deck where one teammate had to traverse the north face of the Eiger where they would pick up their "climbing buddy": the Travelocity roaming gnome. Once they were back inside the observation deck, they could read their next clue found on the bottom of the gnome.

Additonal tasks

  • Upon arriving at Zurich Airport, teams had to find a conductor in a red hat who would give them their next clue.
  • At Grindelwald, teams had to wait at the Kirche Grindelwald for an Alpine shepherd who would give them their next clue.
  • At Kleine Scheidegg, teams had to pick a "Swiss rescue companion" (a St. Bernard dog) outside the Hotel Bellevue des Alpes, who they would take with them to Jungfraujoch, Europe's highest railway station.
  • At Jungfraujoch, teams had to deliver their St. Bernard to a mountain rescue guide before searching the Sphinx Observatory for their next clue.
  • Once teams arrived in Grund they had to cross the Lütschine Brüggli Bridge, then follow the sound of a Swiss alphorn to receive their next clue.
  • In the Switchback, teams revisited the Swiss cheese carrying task of The Amazing Race 14. This time, teams used a Grindelwald sled to transport a total of four 50-pound (23 kg) wheels of cheese downhill to a barn. Once they delivered all four wheels of cheese, the cheese meister would give them their next clue.

Episode 9: "Cut Off the Head of the Snake"
Reward Challenge: Divided into two teams of five, one member from each team would stand on a small platform in the ocean to defend a net. The four members of the opposing team would then leap off a second platform one at a time into the ocean while trying to throw a ball past the defender and into the net. For every ball they get into the net, they would score one point for their team. The first team to score five points (edited in episode to show four points due to time constraints)[6] would win.

Reward: A trip to a waterfall which the castways would rappel down and then enjoy a picnic lunch.

Immunity Challenge: The tribe members would be in the ocean under a metal grate as the incoming tide rises. As the tide rises, the breathing space under the grate grows smaller. The last castaway to remain under the grate would win.

After Sherri's show of loyalty to the Stealth R Us alliance at the last Tribal Council, Phillip declared her a member of the alliance. The Reward Challenge was won by the team of Cochran, Eddie, Erik, Michael, and Reynold who defeated Andrea, Brenda, Dawn, Malcolm, and Phillip. Sherri was not picked during the school yard pick and sat out the challenge. While on their reward, Eddie, Michael, and Reynold pitched to Cochran an all guy alliance, but that did not appeal to Cochran as he didn't want to join in an alliance with the Fans. While the others were on their reward, Malcolm approached Sherri and Dawn about splitting off from the Stealth R Us alliance and taking control of the game. However, the two women reported Malcolm's try to make a big move to Andrea and Phillip. Seeking to punish Malcolm for his disloyalty, the core alliance told Malcolm that the Stealth R Us alliance would be splitting the vote between Eddie and Reynold when in reality they would be voting for Malcolm. While on a trip to a lagoon, Eddie tried to get Andrea on his side and to vote with him. At the Immunity Challenge, Brenda outlasted Andrea to take Individual Immunity. Back at camp, Malcolm started a plan to target Andrea. Keeping up the fake split vote ploy, Dawn told Malcolm that she would vote with him if Reynold showed her the Hidden Immunity Idol. Reynold did, but then also threatened her that if he felt she wouldn't vote with them that he would play the Idol. This did not go over well with Dawn. Eddie told Andrea that her name was being discussed to be voted out. This caused Andrea to panic and she ran to her core alliance to beg them to change their voting plan. She wanted them to abandon the vote against Malcolm and instead vote for Michael as the safe vote.

At Tribal Council, Phillip announced that Sherri was part of the Stealth R Us alliance and also said that anybody who is disloyal to the alliance would get voted out. After the votes were cast, Jeff asked if anybody wanted to play a Hidden Immunity Idol. Reynold stood up to play his Idol, but Malcolm told him to hold up, and persuaded Reynold that after Phillip's speech about being disloyal, it was obvious the alliance had voted for Malcolm and that Reynold should give Malcolm the Idol. Reynold tossed the Idol over and Malcolm played it. But when the votes were read, the Idol went for naught as the alliance ceded to Andrea's wishes and sent Michael to be the first member of the Jury, by a vote of 7–3–1.

Episode 8: "Blindside Time"
Immunity Challenge: The castaways would participate in a local delicacy food eating challenge. The first round would pit two groups of six castaways eating beetle larvae with three castaways moving on from each group. The second round would be the advancing six eating shipworms with three castaways moving on. The third round would be the three castaways eating baluts with two moving on. In the final round, the two castaways would eat pig brains.

On day 20, a boat arrived at the Gota beach announcing the tribal merge. The boat took the Gota tribe to the Bikal beach where the newly merged tribe took part in the traditional merger feast. Malcolm named the tribe Enil Edam; unbeknownst to the tribe, this was to honor his mother Madeline, for Enil Edam being was her name backwards. Phillip told Andrea that they, along with Cochran and Dawn, could take themselves all the way to the Final Four. Corinne plotted with Malcolm about blindsiding Phillip, and they planned to gather a majority voting bloc comprising Corinne and Michael plus Malcolm's new "alpha male" quartet with Erik, Eddie, and Reynold. Their master plan was to vote along with the Favorites in eliminating Sherri before turning on Phillip at the following Tribal Council. At the Immunity Challenge, Andrea, Malcolm, Eddie, Cochran, Phillip, and Michael advanced to the second round. Malcolm, Eddie, and Cochran then downed the shipworms to advance to the third round. Eddie struggled with the balut giving Malcolm the opportunity to face off against Cochran in the final round. The final round was a close and fast competition, with Cochran barely defeating Malcolm and taking the win, upon which he celebrated giddily. Back at camp, Phillip told Corinne that he wanted to split the vote between Reynold and Eddie, but since she needed both of their votes and wanted to keep them from being nervous, she lobbied to vote out Sherri, aiming to keep the eventual plot to blindside Phillip under the surface. Trying to gather support to blindside Phillip, Corinne talked to Dawn about joining the blindside. Worried about what happened last time she kept serious post-merge information to herself, Dawn decided to relay the information to Cochran, and it travelled through the Stealth R Us' members until it reached Phillip. The core Stealth R Us alliance was concerned that Corinne did have the numbers to blindside Phillip, and went to work to blindside Corinne instead. Phillip told Sherri that she could advance in the game by voting for Corinne. Erik became the swing vote with Andrea telling him to vote for Corinne, while Malcolm told him to vote for Sherri. At Tribal Council, Erik decided to vote for Corinne and she was blindsided by a vote of 7–5.

The Amazing Race 22 (Leg 07)

Page was viewed times

Leg 7 (Botswana)
The second Roadblock in Botswana had teams using makoro canoes to navigate part of the Okavango Delta.
  • Maun (Boro Village – Makoro Poling Station)   
  •  Maun (Royal Tree Lodge Game Preserve)  
For the Speed Bump, Max & Katie had to complete a traditional beaded skirt and then wear them while performing a ceremonial seduction dance before they were allowed to continue. For the Fast Forward, one team had the chance to water ski for over a mile on the waters of the Okavango Delta, home to dangerous Nile crocodiles. In this Leg's Roadblock, teams had to transport two goats down river to a delivery point by using a traditional dugout canoe known as a makoro. The team member performing the Roadblock had to control the makoro via punting while his or her teammate looked after the goats. Once the goats had been delivered and the team returned to the start point, they would receive their next clue. The Detour was a choice between Brains and Brawn. In Brains, teams had to go on a horseback safari and spot ten wooden cutouts representing animals found in Botswana (zebra, African buffalo, kudu, giraffe, meerkat, boomslang snake, leopard, warthog, ostrich, and hippopotamus with a heron). They then travelled to a nearby campsite where from memory they arranged a set of tiles featuring the silhouettes of the animals they saw in the order they appeared. The catch was that there were tiles for animals they did not see and there was no tile representing the hippopotamus, but there was one for the heron. If teams were incorrect, they had to complete the safari again before being allowed another try at arranging the tiles. In Brawn, teams had to fill a traditional sand sledge with firewood and then, using a carrot dangling from a stick, coax a team of donkeys to pull the sledge to a campsite over a 1⁄2-mile (0.80 km) away. Once the wood was unloaded from the sledge, teams would receive their next clue.

Additional tasks
  • After the Roadblock, teams took water taxis up the Thamalakane River and then took "safari taxis" to the Royal Tree Lodge Game Preserve where they could find their next clue.
