The Longest Hackathon in the Philippines "Hack the Climate: Manila" is here!

   This June 6 to 8 at De la Salle University Taft Manila, a coding marathon aiming to create an app (mobile/web/hardware) that can be used by an NGO whose main advocacy is to respond to the Climate Change problem such as, Greenpeace, ReDraw the Line, WWF and others, is going to happen! This is an opportunity for everyone to meet like minded people with ideas that could help our country in responding to Climate Change

The 56-hour hackathon will be dedicated for creating web and mobile applications that will be addressing concerns with climate change. These applications can be used to help prevent, prepare, respond, mitigate and recovery efforts when climate related issues arise. These issues include: Pollution (air, land and water), deforestation, overfishing, unsustainable consumption, greenhouse gases, etc.

In a recent volume of the journal Nature, researchers from Princeton document that even slight spikes in temperature and precipitation, which are a of global warming, significantly increase the risk of violent acts such as rape, murder and assault. The official death toll of Haiyan stands at more than 6,300, and if climate change continues unabated the casualties from future climate related disasters could exceed this by several orders of magnitude. Global warming threatens peace globally, and where governments have failed, grassroots action now affords the only democratic, viable alternative for preventing the climate catastrophe.

My Affinity With Animals Saved Me--Pamela Anderson On The Pamela Anderson Foundation Launch

Pam Anderson has opened up about her shocking and heartbreaking past.
During a speech at the launch of The Pamela Anderson Foundation, an animal advocacy group, on Friday, the former "Baywatch" star revealed she was a victim of multiple instances of sexual abuse and assault.
"I did not have an easy childhood. Despite loving parents, I was molested from age 6-10 by my female babysitter," she said. "I went to a friend's boyfriend's house while she was busy. The boyfriend's older brother decided he would teach me backgammon, which led into a back massage, which led into rape - my first heterosexual experience. He was 25 years old - I was 12."

And she said the abuse didn't stop there. "My first boyfriend in grade 9 decided it would be funny to gang rape me with six of his friends," she continued. "Needless to say I had a hard time trusting humans - I just wanted off this earth."

The 46-year-old actress said she found comfort in the company of animals, which led into her lifelong support of animal rights groups.

"My affinity with animals saved me. They came to me naturally," she said. "The trees spoke to me. I wasn't sure why I was alive. A burning question - a quest. My loyalty remained with the animal kingdom - I vowed to protect them and only them.

Johnoy Danao’s First Mainstream Album

Dubbed as the must-have OPM album of the year, Johnoy Danao’s first mainstream album Samu’t-Sari boasts of songs that tackle love in its different faces. This is Johnoy’s first album under a major record label, and he chose Universal Records to take care of his songs.

“Releasing an album independently was a great experience for me,” admits Johnoy. “But, I realized that working with a label, gives me a chance to reach a wider audience. Limited din kasi talaga pag ikaw lang mag-isa. Kahit anong sipag mo, may hangganan sa maaabot na tenga.”

Johnoy, who has established his own strong following in his years as an independent artist, is proud to be in the Universal Records’ roster of artists, which includes OPM President Ogie Alcasid and Noel Cabangon.
