HOT SPOT. These soldiers had a grand time browsing pornographic websites during the first day of the Local Peace and Security Assembly (LPSA) in Tagum City’s Bulwagan ng Lalawigan on Thursday, while National Security Adviser Norberto Gonzales was delivering a speech. President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo attended the event the next day. The soldiers managed to go online because the venue had been turned into a wifi hotspot for the event.

Lea’s advice to young singers

How I wish na sana all the Music Schools teaching voice lessons should take note of this. Kids are kids and they should sing as a child and not as an adult. Naku Lea.. Idol talaga kita!

MANILA, Philippines – Lea Salonga has sound advice for kids aspiring to be like her.

“We need more kid singers who sound like children. Why make them sing the songs of Celine, Mariah and Beyonce, when they clearly lack the life experience to pull off those songs? I cringe at the sound of 10-year-olds singing about lost loves,” she says. “Pwede ba? ‘Big Spender’ shouldn’t be sung by [minors].”

Lea says there are some songs by the same singers that’s okay for kids, like Mariah’s “Hero.” But that is more of an exception.

She recalls: “My mom was very particular about the material I performed until I was 14. Kids need to be guided by their parents.”

If she were a judge in “Pinoy Idol,” how would she pick the winner? “I would critique song selection as [much] as the performance. It’s important to choose material that plays to one’s strengths, not highlight one’s weaknesses. Song and singer have to be a perfect fit. Intonation is another thing I would look for. I don’t like people going flat … sharp kaya ko pang pagtiyagaan.”

With her unlimited savoir faire, Lea’s more than qualified to choose even a “World & Universe Idol.”

Animal rights activists want glue traps shelved

C'mon PETA people, rodents and rats clean or unclean, tidy or dirty comes around for their animal behavior. If they don't hunt for food, they hunt for something to destroy. I don't get it just because it's year of the rat, rats itself should be given dignity. I guess it's just the rats virtue that should be given attention and not the "actual" rat instead.

MANILA, Philippines -- Keeping one’s surroundings clean and storing food properly are humane ways of getting rid of rats, according to animal rights group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA).

In the middle of preparations for Thursday’s celebration of the Chinese New Year, PETA activists staged an awareness campaign on Tuesday on Ongpin Street in Sta. Cruz, Manila, and urged Filipinos to shun the use of glue traps to get rid of rats.

“This is to raise awareness and correct bad impressions about rats,” said Ashley Fruno, PETA’s campaign officer. A PETA member wore a rat costume and held a sign that read, “Make it a year for rats, don’t buy glue traps.”

In the Chinese calendar, 2008 is the Year of the Rat.

“We’re asking people to honor the Year of the Rat by leaving these cruel devices on the store shelves,” Peta said.

Glue traps consist of board pieces coated with a sticky adhesive designed to ensnare small animals.
