Earthquakes in the Philippines

It seems a lot of Filipinos have forgotten their elementary and highschool lessons.  Here are 3 things you should know about earthquakes.

1.  No one can predict an earthquake.  We can only make assumptions based on historical facts and scientific data but we can not do exact predictions.

2.  The Philippines is located along the so called "Ring of Fire".  The earth is composed of ground plates (tectonic plates) that are practically moving and floating.  As the ground moves it creates friction and cause earthquakes.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ring_of_Fire

3.  Since we can not predict earthquakes but we know it will happen, all we can do is prepare.  Follow earthquake drills and build homes according to the building codes.

HIV AIDS in Cagayan de Oro City

In past years, there has been a sudden increase of HIV-AIDS cases in the Philippines, most of which was through male-to-male sex.  The Department of Health has already declared an AIDS epidemic outbreak in the Philippines including Cagayan de Oro City.

For the first time in decades, the HIV-AIDS case in Cagayan de Oro City has reached double digits.  Here are the full statistics in the past years:

2008 - 6 cases
2009 - 9 cases
2010 - 14 cases
 2011 - 27 cases
2012 - 52 cases
2013 - 88 cases

Based on the statistics, the average rate of the viral infection is almost at One Hundred (100%) percent.  If we follow this trend by 2014, the HIV-AIDS cases in the city will reach the 100 mark. 

If you are from Cagayan de Oro City, call the AIDS Hotline number (8822-area code) 72-1189.  This is a service by the City Health Office of Cagayan  de Oro.  They will entertain your questions without malice.  If they do insult or embarrass you in anyway, call the attention of the City Health Officers and report such incident.  These people are supposed to assist you in anyway.
