In the news, TNVS or Transport Network Vehicle Services, will soon be governed by rules laid down by our laws of the land.

There is no more escaping from liabilities for these Transport Network Companies (TNCs), once a passenger avails of their services.

Their usual excuse of being a technological platform to connect passenger with the driver to avoid liabilities will hold no more.

Good job Senator Sherwin Gatchalian, sponsor of the Senate bill to regulate this TNC industry.

But the assertion that TNCs are a solution to traffic congestion is highly debatable. The surefire solution to traffic jams in our roads is mass transport and more road spaces.


Pres. BBM is talking to farmers in his efforts to improve food security in the country.

The country’s leading investment on rice processing technology, Chen Yi Agriventures, is one of the many that Pres. BBM has listened to.

Patrick Renucci and his wife Rachel Tan, founders of Chen Yi, came to the Philippines to help rebuild Leyte from the ruins of Supertyphoon Yolanda.

When they came to Leyte, they saw what was needed most, improve rice production. They were not farmers but succeeded to become what they are now, inspiration and leaders in the better use of our lands.

Patrick joined Save Our Soils (SOS) movement, Leyte chapter, together with other entrepfarmers in Leyte, recognizing the need to bring back life to our soils.

Our farm lands are on its final stage of destruction from irresponsible use of chemical fertilizers.
