QUEZON CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Quezon City Bureau) – A total of 1,800 examinees passed the 2018 Bar exams as announced on Friday by the Philippine Supreme Court. That’s a mere 22% of the 8,155 takers.
Today, Leni Robredo who flunked the Bar exam on her first try, had a very personal message to all who didn’t make the passers list:
”You could be Vice President some day.”
QUEZON CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Quezon City Bureau) – Philippine Vice President Leni Robredo seems to have some serious beef with anonymity. Just recently, she called for legal sanctions against anonymous social media accounts that are, in her words, spreading fake news.
Now, Robredo wants to put an end to the Oblation Run at the University of the Philippines’ Diliman campus.
The run is an annual event organized by the university’s Alpha Phi Omega fraternity. Participants run around the campus naked to protest various political and social issues. The runners, however, remain anonymous by wearing face and head masks.
“Just like the anonymous accounts on social media, the runners hide their identity while being open about issues they are fighting for. It’s just not fair,” Robredo, herself a U.P. Diliman graduate, told The Adobo Chronicles.
”I fully support freedom of speech, but I also believe that people must be man or woman enough to own up to their speech.”
Words of wisdom from the fake VP.
MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – After receiving flak for the bullying incident involving one of its junior high school students, Ateneo de Manila University announced today that beginning next school year, it will be adding Taekwondo as a required curriculum for students in all levels.
The Ateneo bully who threatened (mis)dignity or physical injury to a fellow student, is a Takewondo practitioner.
In reaching its decision, the Ateneo Board of Directors said that had the bullied student been also a Takewondo practitioner, then the incident would not have been an issue. The bathroom encounter would have been fair and square.
Already, the Taekwondo Association of the Philippines as well as Ateneo alumnus NoyNoy Aquino (yes, the ex-Philippine President) are praising the university for its courageous decision.
