Ekonomiya ng Quezon City, 'wag isapalaran - Bistek - eto ang titulo ng artikulong nabasa ko sa website ng quezon city.
Hindi dapat isapalaran ang matatag na ekono miya ng Lungsod Quezon sa darating na halalan sa Mayo 10, 2010.
Ito ang ipinunto ni Liberal Party mayoralty bet at pambato ng Serbisyong Bayan (SB) Team na si QC Vice Mayor Herbert ‘Bistek’ Bautista kaugnay sa isyu ng pamumudmod umano ng salapi ng ilang kandidato sa mga botante kapalit ng kanilang sagradong boto.
Pagkatapos ng patong patong na graft charges sa kanya at iba pang kaso na may kaugnay na pera, naiisip ba ng mga botante ng Quezon City na magiging magaling na tagapaglingkod si Bistek? Maaring nadala sya sa maayos na pamamahala ni Sonny Belmonte at sa support na binibigay nito s knya. Oo, maaring kyang nyang ipagpatuloy ang mga nasimulan ni Belmonte, pro nakakasigurado ba tayong safe ang kaban ng bayan s knya?

“It is now clear that Vice Mayor Bautista is running scared. Mayor Mathay is taking Quezon City by storm. The support of the people is clearly there, judging from the warm welcome we are getting all over the city,” Bobbit Mathay, spokesman of his uncle, said.
“The camp of Bautista now resorts to citing fictitious surveys that show him leading in the race for the mayoralty. It’s all black propaganda,” Mathay added.So if Bautista and Defensor's camp released fake surveys to condition the minds of QC voters who's the toughest guy of'em all??

BAUTISTA has an on going case at the Ombudsman and still facing several charges against him and his brother, while DEFENSOR was and still under the president's asylum. Yes, they are big, they made it as if they are the only candidate to choose from. Bragging about their "incomparable" political experience and yet established a shitty reputation.
Wake up people! they are not your only choice. There are others who are more capable and deserving of our votes. Are we going to limit ourselves to choose between these two guys? There's also Mathay and Susano (but who cares about her). Mathay has served the city for about 3 consecutive terms, and he did well. With that, I guess, I already have a choice.

What are the essential aspects that you should take into consideration when choosing a tattoo?
Let’s have a look at what I call my four essential guidelines!
Before choosing a tattoo, make a list of your hobbies, sports, and passions as well as the things you like, be they animals, flowers, or even foods! Do you have any religious inclinations? When you keep these things in mind, you’re guaranteed to end up with a tattoo design that reflects who you are and is perfect for you!
Also, keep in mind that the interest you pick your tattoo in is for life, and not just a fleeting fancy. It should be something that you’ve always been into and always will! Also, having a tattoo of your interest may just help you meet up with people who have the same interests by acting as an icebreaker. New friends!
Always, always, check out the various connotations and meanings of the tattoo design you have in mind. This is important because different people deduce and react variedly to some tattoos. A tattoo can be interpreted differently by dissimilar cultures and religions, which is why you need to be sure that the tattoo you are getting is not offensive. Also, your tattoo design may just be the opposite of what your dogmas are, which is quite unsettling if you discover after!
Also, tattoo meanings change depending on the part of the anatomy they are etched on, the specific positioning of the tattoo or even its role in a group of body tattoos. However, do not let this pull you down. Remember, every tattoo has a different symbolic meaning, so if you’re all right with what you want to portray, go right ahead!
Search engines and tattoo websites will generally tell you the symbolism behind a particular tattoo image, if you wish to know. Tattoo artists can also help you out in this respect, especially if the tattoo design is one of their own!
Location, as mentioned before, is the all-important factor in tattooing. The position of the tattoo can convey a different meaning, as well as improve or detract from its appeal. For example, a tattoo on your arm will have a different sort of attraction compared to the same tattoo on your ankle.
Placement of the tattoo can say a lot of things about yourself: whether you’re inherently masculine or feminine, whether you’re a sensual or calm person and so on.
Location of the tattoo also serves to show that you’re a member of a specific cult, group or gang. There are plenty of secret societies whose members can be made out using specific tattoos in specific positions on the body!
Professional men and women place their tattoos on body parts which are in a precise and hidden spot. A woman may place a tattoo on her collarbone where it is hidden by a jacket at work, and shown off by wearing a low-cut gown for an evening out!
People generally do not get tattoos if they want to keep them hidden, they get them so that other people can see and admire them! This is one of the main reasons as to why aesthetic value is important when getting a tattoo.
A tattoo is not only important for its significance in your life, but also because it has great appeal and makes you look great as well as unique! Thus, you can show off your lovely tattoo and guess what: good body art is always worth a second, third and fourth glance!
I hope these tips helped you, to some degree, at least organize the reasons for choosing a tattoo, in order to help you choose one that's best for you.

Before Quezon City was created, it was composed of small towns. These were San Francisco del Monte, Novaliches, and Balintawak. In August 23, 1896, the Katipunan led by .Andres Bonifacio declared a revolution against Spain in the house of Melchora Aquino in Pugad Lawin (now known as Bahay Toro, Project 8).
In the early 1900s, President Manuel L. Quezon dreamt of a city that would become the future capital of the country, replacing Manila, and home to several middle workers. It is believed that his earlier trip to Mexico influenced his vision. In 1938, President Quezon created People's Homesite Corporation and purchased 15.29 km² from the vast Diliman estate of the Tuason family.(This piece of land became known as Bario Obrero "Home of the Middle Workers" before a name change to Quezon City) The National Assembly of the Philippine Commonwealth passed Commonwealth Act 502 known as the “Charter of Quezon City” originally proposed as Balintawak City, Assemblymen Narciso Ramos (father of President Fidel V. Ramos) and Ramon Mitra, Sr. (father of Speaker Ramon Mitra, Jr.) successfully lobbied the assembly to name the city after the incumbent president. President Quezon allowed the bill to lapse into law without his signature on October 12, 1939, thus establishing Quezon City.
After the war, Republic Act No. 333 was signed by Elpidio Quirino on July 17, 1948 declaring Quezon City to be the republic's capital. On June 16, 1950, the City Charter was revised by Republic Act No. 537, extending the city's boundaries to its present area of 153.59 km². Baesa, Talipapa, San Bartolome, Pasong Tamo, Novaliches Poblacion, Banlat, Kabuyao, Pugad Lawin, Bagbag, Pasong Putik of the old Novaliches municipality ceded to Quezon City. The rest of the municipality was ceded to Caloocan thus becoming North Caloocan.
On November 7, 1975 the promulgation of Presidential Decree No. 824 of President Ferdinand Marcos established Metro Manila. Quezon City became one of Metro Manila's 17 cities and municipalities. The next year, Presidential Decree No. 940 transferred the capital back to Manila on June 24, 1976.
On March 31, 1978, President Ferdinand Marcos ordered the transfer of the remains of President Manuel L. Quezon from the Manila North Cemetery to the erected Quezon Memorial Monument within the Quezon Elliptical Road.
On February 22, 1986, the Quezon City portion of the Epifanio de los Santos Avenue became the venue of the bloodless People Power Revolution.
On February 23, 1998, Republic Act. No. 8535 was signed by President Fidel V. Ramos. The Act provided for the creation of the City ofNovaliches comprising the 15 northernmost barangays of Quezon City. However, in the succeeding plebiscite on October 23, 1999, an overwhelming majority of Quezon City residents rejected the secession of Novaliches.
Quezon City is the first local government in the Philippines with a computerized real estate assessment and payment system. The City government developed a database system that now contains around 400,000 property units with capability to record payments.

Political corruption is the use of legislated powers by government officials for illegitimate private gain. Misuse of government power for other purposes, such as repression of political opponents and general police brutality, is not considered political corruption. Neither are illegal acts by private persons or corporations not directly involved with the government. An illegal act by an officeholder constitutes political corruption only if the act is directly related to their official duties.
Vote wisely this coming election, please refresh your mind from the issues that had been raised to every candidate. Don't just listen, think and analyze. This will help us choose the right leader of our nation thus to avoid corrupt officials or candidates. Don't be mislead by their platforms. Sometimes they just use their projects to steal from us.

“Speculations that I am withdrawing from the mayoral race in Quezon City are not true. These are part of a black propaganda campaign waged against me by my opponents,” former Quezon City Mayor Mel Mathay said after hearing that there are rumors circulating around the metro that he is withdrawing from the race.
On my opinion, to his opponents --you have all popularity, the issues, and the survey, leave the man alone and let the people decide for themselves. You are just confusing the public. It's a stupid tactic..so pleeeaaasssee...

As expected, of course, they all have a good set of programs for QC's next two years. But one of them caught my interest. He's the former Mayor of QC. His advocacy "MAMAYAN MUNA" - The People Come First. His mission is for the benefit of the people of QC, from education, to business and economic development, to social and health services, among others.
But it is more that just his platform that caught my attention. It is he being in silence despite of all the dirty gimiks and tactics of his contenders. I admire him for that. He has the qualities of a good servant to the people. He is a man of honor and dignity. He is Mel Mathay.
