Affairs Committee.“China has a coherent multi-di-
mensional approach to global compe-tition which also includes the domina-tion of sea-lanes and civil airspace inEast Asia. This is one of Beijing’s topstrategic goals, not just for economicand military advantage, but also fordomestic political legitimacy andregional diplomatic propaganda,” saidJohn TkacikJr., Director of the Future AsiaProject.The FutureAsia Projectis part of theWashington

Philippine Star | MA- NILA , 5/24/2012-- The man’s not aclone of the late Sen.Benigno “Ninoy”Aquino Jr. Perhapsyou may see him asa copycat. But the uncanny physical resemblance aloneis truly startling. If you don’tknow anything about the fam-ily, you’d think he is a sonof the late Senator who wasassassinated at the tarmac of the old Manila International
Airport on August 21, 1983.
The similarity does notend with the physical featuresalone. This young man is asarticulate, as intellectual, asknowledgeable and has the

o Phil-ippine Star | BOHOL, Philip- pines, 5/25/2012 – With itsgeographic location and weak regulations, the Philippineshas the complete ingredientsfor disaster and emergencysituations, the Departmentof Health (DOH) said hereyesterday. According to SusanJuangco of the DOH-HealthEmergency ManagementService, the Philippines isvulnerable to disasters primar-ily because it is located alongthe typhoon belt. “Every year,we experience 22 typhoons.For this year, we have not hadany typhoon yet,” she said in
the Covering Disasters 101
media seminar organized bythe DOH here.Aside from this, the coun-try is also situated along the
Pacic Ring of Fire and is
sitting on top of two tectonic plates, making it susceptibleto earthquakes.Juangco added that sincethe Philippines is one of thecountries with the longestcoastlines, it is also vulnerableto tsunami which comes after an earthquake.The country is also teem-ing with 352 volcanoes, 22 of them active while 27 othersare potentially active.Juangco said the Philip- pines’ vulnerability to emer-gency situations is aggravated by weak regulations on landtransportation, aviation andmaritime industries and inade-quate prevention and responsesystem.
She cited for instance res,
which she said can be due toillegal electrical connectionsand non-observance of build-ing codes.Juangco also cited thecountry’s inability to properlyaddress oil spill because of weak shipping regulations andlack of equipment for chemi-cal emergency and unclear cleanup policy.“We may not be able to prevent typhoons (or other natural disasters) but we canmitigate their impacts throughour response (system),”Juangco said.She, however, said thatthe country’s situation mayDublin, Ireland - Juanito Hacintois a poor man in Bataan, Philippines.He is a member of the Aeta indigenous people. He sat with his wife Nita, andtheir three children under a mango treeto hear our message that the Preda Fair Trade organisation, Profairtrade, will pay 100% higher for their mango fruitso that they could have a better life.The Preda project is turning mangofruit to Preda Fair Trade dried mangos.Sales are boosted by growing demandand so it is expanding to help moreindigenous hill farmers. The not-for 
 prot project is using earning to bring
 practical economic help and justice to
their villages, social benets and devel-
opment too. Sales of the mangos go tohelp exploited and abused women andchildren also.Juanito and Nita were happy to hear this as they only get a pittance for their mangos from commercial traders andthe price is so low it is not worth evenharvesting and carrying them over themountain to sell. There is no road andnot even a viable school in their remotevillage. Preda Fair Trade dried man-gos will help empower them to get theschool operating and teaching the chil-dren. A child with a cleft lip was found and brought for a surgical operation. After speech
therapy she will learn to smile and talk normally for the rst time in her life.
Fair Trade fortnight is a time when we ought to think how we live and consume prod-ucts. Do the faith based values we hold dear apply to what we buy and consume. When we buy products do we ask the supermarket manager where it’s from and is just and fair? Faithwithout action for doing good, like bringing about social justice, is useless, St. James says.
