Filipino Scientists Invent A Gene Therapy That Can Cure Stupidity

DD073CAE-AD10-400F-8125-3C2BA10B6B54.jpegMANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – When it comes to advances in medicine and technology, the Philippines is definitely not lagging behind.

Scientists at the Ateneo de Manila University have invented a gene therapy that can cure stupidity in human beings.

By injecting synthetic ‘I’ (intelligence) genes into clusters of naturally-occuring ‘S’ (stupidity) genes, researchers said that stupid people can transform into more intelligent individuals in just weeks.

The research, funded by the nonprofit group Intelligence Quotient International, was prompted by persistent reports that more and more Filipinos — especially elected politicians and anti-Duterte bloggers — have displayed serious cases of non-human intelligence lately.

The new discovery is sure to be among the frontrunners in next year’s Nobel Prize for Science and Technology.

Risa Hontiveros Calls For Senate Hearing On Missing PhilHealth Funds

59C45AAC-3CE5-40D0-A073-0FAC780014C9MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Philippine Senators are having so much fun with investigative hearings “in aid of legislation.” The hearings not only provide them the opportunity to have their few minutes of fame.  It also helps distract from the fact that they are part of a do-nothing Senate.

Risa Hontiveros is one Senator who basks in the pleasure of Senate hearings, whether it’s about ‘fake news,” illegal drugs or whatever.

So today, she called for a Senate hearing on the alleged missing PhilHealth Funds amounting to P1.7 billion, during the time that she was connected with the health insurance agency.

For starters, she had summoned herself to be one of the resource persons for the hearing.
