by Airea Calica, Philstar.com | BANDAR SERI BE-GAWAN, 10/10/2013 – China offered an olive branch yesterday to Southeast Asian nations wary of its territorial claims, displaying its growing
inuence at another summit
notable for US President Ba-rack Obama’s absence.Premier Li Keqiang called for peace in the South China Sea and expanded Chinese trade with the 10-member As-sociation of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) as he met the bloc’s leaders in the oil-
ush sultanate of Brunei.
“A peaceful South China Sea is a blessing for all. We need to work together to make the South China Sea a sea of peace, friendship and coop-eration,” Li said.Li took the baton from President Xi Jinping, who underlined Chinese power by occupying center stage earlier
this week at an Asia-Pacic
summit in Bali while Obama was stuck at home due to the US government shutdown.China asserts sovereignty over most of the South China Sea, including waters near the coasts of its neighbors.The Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia and Brunei -- all ASEAN members -- have competing claims to parts of the sea, and Manila and Hanoi have in recent years repeat-edly accused China of becom-ing more aggressive in the dispute.
Abide by sea code – Noy
Also yesterday, President Aquino took a diplomatic tack and called on countries in-volved in the dispute to abide by the 2002 Declaration on the Conduct of Parties (DOC) in the South China Sea.The DOC provides for the exercise of restraint and de-sisting from occupying areas
with conicting claims.
Without mentioning Pa-natag Shoal, Ayungin Shoal and even Mischief Reef that China had already occupied, Aquino called the attention of countries to the provisions of the DOC that China agreed to

Recently, I wrote an article en-titled “The Pinoy and his Carabao English.” In the article, I noted that the policemen in Makati, Philip- pines, are now required to take a refresher course in the English lan-guage since they encounter a lot of international tourists, businessmen and diplomats in that premier city in Metro Manila. I wrote that the English language was introduced by the Thomasites, named after the ship Thomas, that brought this group of American teachers to the Philippines in the early part of the American occupa-tion at the turn of the twentieth cen-tury. These teachers were so good and strict that they produced the best Filipino writers in English during the period.
Even then, many Filipinos nd it
hard to perfect their English lan-
guage skills because they must rst
think in their native dialect and then translate their thoughts into English as they speak or write. Nonetheless, to the credit of their teachers, almost everyone blossomed into good English speakers, if not writers because the language was the medium of instruction in both the public and private schools until Filipino was used for teaching as well.
Thus, I theorized that Filipinos who migrate to the United States, Australia, Canada or Great Britain could easily
I learned to drive a jeep at an early age because my uncle and auntie were engaged in the buy and sell business. You can say they had a route that started from Blumentritt to La Mesa Dam. Yes this is the same dam that my dad helped build. Every day the two of them would drive to Blumentritt to buy grocer-ies which included meat and vegetables and different ingredients. The jeep would be packed at the start and as they proceeded towards Novaliches their customers along the way would just gather around them at their designated stops. By the time what she was so good at doing and that is to peddle the rest of her goodies to her waiting customers or “suki”. Eddie they reached our place, they would be about 90% sold out. This is when Eddie and I would take over the driving as my uncle would rest and
nish the required paperwork.

ongoing scal deadlock in a
timely manner to avoid nega-tive spillovers on the global economy.
"We are now ve days
away from a very dangerous moment. I urge US policy-makers to quickly come to a resolution before they reach the debt ceiling deadline," Kim said Saturday at a press conference after the meeting of Development Committee of the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund (IMF).US Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew has told Congress that the federal government will reach its debt ceiling of $16.7 trillion by Oct. 17 and that failure to raise it would lead to a catastrophic default.
"The closer we get to the deadline, the greater the impact will be for the developing world. Inaction could result
in interest rates rising, condence fall-
ing, and growth slowing," Kim told
GMA News | 10/12/2013 -- Typhoon Santi, internation-ally known as Nari, pounded northern Luzon early Satur-day, killing 13 people, ripping roofs off thousands of build-ings, and leaving more than two million without power.Santi tore into the coun-try's northeast coast around midnight (1600 GMT Friday), toppling trees and pylons as it cut a westward swathe through the farming regions of the main island of Luzon,
"While there were rela-tively few casualties, a lot of
areas are still ooded," said
Eduardo del Rosario, head of the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council.Witnesses in the coastal town of Baler, near where Santi made landfall, said many large trees had been felled and clean-up crews with chainsaws were clearing roads.Military and police res-cuers trucked residents out
of ooded villages as the
weather improved after the typhoon's 120 kilometres (75 miles) per hour winds swept out to the South China Sea later Saturday morning.
Government clerk Glenn Diwa, 34, said she and her husband spent a sleep-
