SEVEN BILLION

17 10 2011


ACCORDING TO THE UN Population Fund, the number of people living on the planet is set to reach seven billion on Oct. 31. Hence, the need to fund family planning and reproductive health. Skeptical of the data, Sen. Tito Sotto wants to see birth certificates first.

World population is growing at a rapid rate. The planet’s 7 billionth inhabitant – yes, 7 billionth – will be born on Halloween. Scary.

World population is hitting 7 billion this month. From a sustainability perspective, that’s disturbing. So I’m sending a letter to Sen. Bong Revilla and Cong. Manny Pacquiao. Sirs, enough!

As world population reaches 7 billion, experts say the challenge is how to encourage smaller families especially in poorer countries. Or as the Catholic Church would say, “No way!”

Planet Earth’s seven billionth inhabitant will be born on Oct. 31 somewhere in the Asia-Pacific. In three years time, he or she would  be working in a Nike factory in Bejing.

The UN Population Fund says it is most likely that Baby No. 7 billion will be born in the Asia-Pacific Region. I’m really excited for Fabella Hospital!

The world’s population is set to hit seven billion on Oct. 31. Seven billion people and yet…
… you chose to send THAT representative to the Lower House;
… you voted for THAT incompetent senator, and
… you have flip-flopping justices in the Supreme Court?

Seven billion people and yet…
… you are still single?
What happened?

IN OTHER NEWS…

Thousands of Americans have joined massive protest actions known as “Occupy Wall Street.” It’s a rally against inequality and corporate greed . Inequality and greed?!? By all means, let’s Occupy Congress!

“Occupy Wall Street” is a protest against the widening gap between poor and wealthy people. Reports say the movement has become global. This morning, maids, cooks, and drivers of Manny V. Pangilinan gathered outside his residence.

Even before Americans and their counterparts in London, Australia, Germany, Italy, Canada, and Japan “occupied Wall Street,” alleged landgrabber Wilfredo Torres of the Philippines had already occupied Quezon City!

Not Pregnant
Broadcaster Korina Sanchez has categorically dismissed rumors that she is pregnant. Hoping to have a baby soon, Sen. Mar Roxas is reportedly planning to “Occupy Korina.”

The Big Ben
Reports say the famous Big Ben of London is gently leaning to one side. Something similar is happening right here in the Philippines. It’s called the Supreme Court.

Sylar Comes ‘Out’
Zachary Quinto who played  ‘Spock’ on ‘Star Trek’ and the villain ‘Sylar’ in the hit TV series “Heroes” has admitted that he’s gay. That explains why he wanted Peter Petrelli so much.

Doctor lt. colonel congressman pacquaio is definitely making his contribution to boxing, gambling and population growth.
He will exceed erap in his debauchery, and senator lapid in other ways

…sna inquire muna ang UNPF kay Sen. Bong Revilla, Rep. Manny Paquiao, kay Father, kay Sister Estella L. kay Pope at kay Gretchen Barretto kung wla pa tlga si 7th billion child pra mas accurate.

…isama na rin si @senior60, @etchosera & @hikatalomato to have their magnitude of figure delineated to its precision.

alam mo danny, sometime ago na, nabasa ko na somewhere, ewan ko lang din if my memory still serves me right and not left yet, na ang china
daw ay, comprises 1/3 of the world’s population at 3 billion plus…

so, tama ka danny, UNPF should have, siguro kung pagbabasihan ang above, nasa mga around 10 billion na tayo humigit kumulang

7-B lang pala eh, maluwag pa ang mundo. Hanggang di pa magkakapalit-palit na tayo ng mga mukha sa sikip, ayus lang yan. Relax muna tayo.

Buti na yung may extra na mga tao. Pag naubos na mga hayop at halaman na kinakain natin, tayo tayo naman magkainan. Mahirap na yung walang reserba. 😛

Soon enough, we don’t have to worry about growing our own food. 🙂 Wala pang issue sa rice importation. 😛

In his usual condescending way lacierda says ‘ there is no need for the country to mimic ‘occupy wall street’ since this administration is inclusive’ whatever that means.
The point,which would of course be missed on dimboy, is about inequality and hypocricy.
Since the top 1% here earn on average 1,000,000 pesos a month and the average for those able to get a job here is 20,000 pesos a month then i think it is very relevant.
The hypocricy speaks for itself.
The continual message from malacan is – dont comment, dont criticise,dont question, and dont think.
Thats chinese democracy for you.

exactly , which is why some countries are making their feelings felt and voices heard.
with an income inequality ratio of 50:1 the country which should be making the most noise hides in a corner, and ignores the issue.
maybe you are part of the 1% and dont care about those less fortunate or think change is not attainable, so do nothing.
