RUDD AS AUSTRALIA’S FOREIGN MINISTER: A RUDE CHOICE!

RUDD AS AUSTRALIA’S FOREIGN MINISTER: A RUDE CHOICE!



Erle Frayne D. Argonza



Good Day from the Pearl of the Orient!



I am having a great time as storms haven’t come our way yet for almost two (2) weeks now. Showers do come once a day, and I’m glad the streets are swept clean by the cascading tropical waters. I just wish that the waters here can cleanse the political dirt down south too, and by south I mean the Australian subcontinent.



The news of former… Continue

CHINA’S 3-GORGES DAM: DAMNING ECO-FASCIST CATASTR0PHE DISCOURSE

CHINA’S 3-GORGES DAM: DAMNING ECO-FASCIST CATASTR0PHE DISCOURSE



Erle Frayne D. Argonza




Good morning to all ye global citizens! Goodwill and peace to you!



For this day I chose to peregrinate on the 3-Gorges Dam of China, a project that cost a whopping $23 Billion to build. The eco-fascist detractors of the project raised the specter of catastrophe that could result from a collapse of the dam infrastructure, so maybe its time to reflect about the giant… Continue

ANOTHER STIMULUS PACKAGE BY OBAMA?



Erle Frayne D. Argonza





Good evening from the paradise boondocks south of Manila!



The weather in this tropical area where I reside right today has been so fine for almost two (2) weeks now, and this is unusual for the month of September when four (4) storms pass over the country on the average. At any rate, this makes me a bit happy, enough to ruminate again about the global economy specifically the White House policy… Continue

FUEL SAVING SHOWS ASIANS AHEAD OF EUROPEANS

FUEL SAVING SHOWS ASIANS AHEAD OF EUROPEANS



Erle Frayne D. Argonza



Good Day from the suburbs south of Manila!



Another gladdening news for us global citizens just came out recently from the heraldry mills: that of Asians leading the way to fuel-saving behavior. For those advocates of mitigating ‘greenhouse effect’ gas emissions through direct motorist interventions, the news surely comes as a refreshing one.



In a report summarized in the Philippine… Continue

Erle Frayne D. Argonza





Peace be with you! To all devout sons and daughters of Allah, love and peace!



Permit me, through this note, to commend an ongoing project in Mindanao (Philippines) that showcases the theme of ‘infrastructure for peace’. This is the GEM Project, short for Growth with Equity in Mindanao. Funded by the United States A.I.D., the GEM will ensue till 2012 yet.



A report titled “GEM program continues in Mindanao” (Manila Bulletin, 25… Continue

MARIKINA SHOES: GLOBALIZATION’S CARCASS RE-SURGES

MARIKINA SHOES: GLOBALIZATION’S CARCASS RE-SURGES



Erle Frayne D. Argonza



Good evening from the Pearl of the Orient!



Marikina shoes, the top pioneering shoe industry in Southeast Asia after World War II, has been among the carcass industries in the aftermath of globalization. Lately though, the industry has been re-surging from the doldrums, so let me share some notes about the matter.



Marikina is a city to the east of Old Manila and is among the model… Continue

ROBOTS BETTER DO MINERS’ JOB IN NEAR FUTURE

Good evening from the suburban boondocks south of Manila!



It’s playing Latin music in my multimedia at home right now. As I play the danceable tunes by Buena Vista Social Club, my eyes are focused on the news “Some Chile miners showing mental crack” in the world news of the Philippine Daily Inquirer (Aug. 29, 2010).



Let me then dedicate this piece to the task of mining as a way to… Continue

Erle Frayne D. Argonza



Good morning from the suburbs south of Manila!



To continue with our exciting news for the ‘ember’ months, let me share some reflections about the recently released people’s car from India. The array of new innovations goes longer than that, with the car serving as the icing in the cake.



Beth Day Romulo, international journalist who’s the other half of the late Carlos… Continue

Solidarity and peace to you all on the occasion of Eid’l Fitr!



The Philippines officially celebrates Eid’l Fitr, the Muslim post-Ramadan celebration, on this day of my writing this piece. Solidarity to all Muslims of the Philippines and the world!



We have about 7 Millions of Muslims in the Philippines, a fact that qualifies this country to be represented in international bodies for Muslims such as the… Continue

NERO SARKOZY EXPELS GYPSIES: PRELUDE TO BONAPARTIST EUROPE?



Erle Frayne D. Argonza



Good Day and goodwill to you fellow global citizens!



It is now September as I write this piece. September is the end of summer up North, while here in the tropics it is another month of monsoon rains and powerful typhoons.



Well, in France it is summer for the legitimate scions of the Republic and Caucasian Europeans, while it is typhoon season for the Gypsies. Ethnic… Continue

ENERGIZING HINTERLANDS: DILEMMA OF ISLAND REPUBLICS

ENERGIZING HINTERLANDS: DILEMMA OF ISLAND REPUBLICS



Erle Frayne D. Argonza



Good morning from the Philippines suburban boondocks!



Erecting energy grids is the main thing in energy distribution and could be so for some decades to come. The Philippines has been among the most notably advanced in building a grid infrastructure in its large islands (Luzon, Mindanao), a precedent that has been emulated by other developing countries.



Observably, power… Continue

FUSION NUCLEAR ENERGY: CHINA TAKES R&D LEAD



Erle Frayne D. Argonza



Good afternoon!



Large swaths of lands in Asia were recently flooded, which paints a gloomy landscape in China, India, and Pakistan. Flooding, however, doesn’t kill civilizations, and floodwaters should be viewed on the positive side as providing, after calamities, much needed water and energy source.



As history has shown, it is the sudden absence of water, via large-scale calamity,… Continue

EURO-AMERICAN BANKRUPT COMPANIES ARE LEPERS, ASIANS BE WARY!

EURO-AMERICAN BANKRUPT COMPANIES ARE LEPERS, ASIANS BE WARY!



Erle Frayne D. Argonza



Leper Companies, Inc. could very well describe the so many huge corporate entities in the West that are now expectantly waiting for some investors to breath fresh life into them. The compass of that search points to Asia as the source of the badly needed ‘smart money’.



What a mess indeed had Western economies turned into, as their respective enterprises have been crashing to… Continue

USA’S LEADERSHIP HAD EVAPORATED, WHY OUGHT STOCK MARKETS FOLLOW?



Erle Frayne D. Argonza



Good day fellow global citizens!



It’s late afternoon here in the Philippines, daylight is still around though quite faded a bit. The time of the day seems to be delivering the message that there is still some light in the global economy, and that is a feel-good ambience.



Light there may be for the global economy, but that light no longer comes from the Western… Continue

RURAL DEVELOPMENT SHOULD BE TOP PRIORITY WORLDWIDE

RURAL DEVELOPMENT SHOULD BE TOP PRIORITY WORLDWIDE



Erle Frayne D. Argonza



Good evening from the Philippines’ highland suburbs!



For this note I will focus on the thesis that rural development should be pursued by developing countries. The world’s nations have pursued growth that has been badly skewed towards urbanization and commercialization since after World War II, a total effort that has seen many people become poor as a result. Most of the poor folks are in… Continue

Good evening from the Philippine suburbs!



I wish Europeans could find sufficient reason to brighten themselves up these days. Maybe the northern Europeans can still find some reason to smile in the light of welfare state graces still flowing to their pockets, while those of southern Europe’s are grilling in the heat of a continent burning in economic firestorm.



Europe is… Continue

SPARTACUS UNVEILED: TROUNCING BONARPIST EUROPE



Erle Frayne D. Argonza



Hail Bonaparte! Hail New Rome! Hail the Empire!



Such slogans could very well be the reverb calls across Europe any one of these coming months. Bonaparte is coming back to Europe, beginning with the consolidation of the union and the implementation of a state ideology based precisely on the centralized institutions that Napoleon Bonaparte seeded during his halcyon days.



New Rome has… Continue

PAN-AFRICAN AWARENESS RISES: WILL IT BITE?



Erle Frayne D. Argonza



Magandang gabi mula sa Perlas ng Silangan! Good evening from the Pearl of the Orient!



Pan-Africanism seems to be getting sweeter an idea recently, so I chose to delve on the subject for this article. Pan-Africanism as a pathos (group feel & aware) seeks to unify the diverse ethnicities of the continent from southernmost South Africa to the northern Arab-Berber-Hamite territories, to indicate… Continue
