When Social media backfires

Inquirer Breaking News - Tue, 07/07/2020 - 04:06
What seemed like a harmless video posted on social media platform Instagram of friends playing pickup ball has proven costly for Barangay Ginebra forward Japeth Aguilar and Rain or Shine rookie Adrian Wong. The PBA yesterday slapped Aguilar and Wong a fine of P20,000 each for their involvement in the scrimmage, which was in clear in violation of Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF) guidelines under the general community quarantine (GCQ) and a defiance of a PBA-issued protocol restricting its players from working out---much less play a full-court scrimmage. PBA commissioner Willie Marcial also said Aguilar and Wong will undergo 30 hours o...

Inquirer Breaking News - Tue, 07/07/2020 - 04:03
San Miguel Beer coach Leo Austria is hopeful that the Philippine Basketball Association would still be able to put together at least one full conference before the year is over. And it's a no-brainer on what that conference would be.

COVID-19 ‘airborne,’ more infectious

Inquirer Breaking News - Tue, 07/07/2020 - 04:02
The over 5,000 new and confirmed new coronavirus disease (COVID-19) cases in just three days is a cause of major concern, with Metro Manila accounting for 1,069 of the new cases. Dr. Elden Salvaa, a member of the Department of Health (DOH) technical working group, suggests that the virus has mutated and is now three times more infectious. Health reform advocate Dr. Tony Leachon believes the virus is "airborne" after 238 coronavirus experts from 32 countries issued an open letter to the World Health Organization.

Retool your skills to stay employable

Inquirer Breaking News - Tue, 07/07/2020 - 04:01
This pandemic has turned our world upside down. Unless we're able to adapt adequately to its demands---the various paradigm shifts it entails---our economic or financial health may be compromised. We may survive the pandemic's threats on our physical health, but we may succumb later to malnourished financial health because of pay cuts and unemployment. When push comes to shove, those with multiple or sufficient skills will be retained by most companies and spared from unemployment. A patient texted me a few days ago asking if he could stop taking his medicines. He was laid off from work two months into the lockdown, and whatever separation pay he got will not last more than a year, an...
