Rappler Fact-Checks 16th Century Astrologer And Seer Nostradamus!

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – It must have been a slow news day at Rappler, the online news source headed by convicted CEO albeit controversial recipient of the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize Maria Ressa.

Rappler, one of the designated Facebook —well Meta — fact checkers in the Philippines, went all out to dispel a viral post claiming that a 16th century astrologer, physician and reputed seer Michel de Nostredame (better known as Nostradamus) predicted that former Senator Bongbong Marcos will become President of his country.

Rappler described the claim as ”false.”

Here’s hoping that Rappler will also fact-check and dispel posts claiming that Vice President Leni Robredo was with Jesus Christ during the biblical story on the multiplication of bread and fish.

IATF Relaxes Rules: Face-To-Face Dating Now Allowed!

MANILA, PHilippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – As new cases of Covid-19 in the Philippines seem to be going down, the Inter-Agency Task Force on Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF) has moved to relax some of its quarantine restrictions.

In addition to limited face-to-face school classes, IATF also announced it will no longer require the mandatory use of face shields in public with a few exceptions for areas under Alert Level 5 and in medical settings.

Today, IATF also announced that it will now also allow face-to-face dating regardless of Alert Level.

The move is welcome news for couples who have restricted their dating to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Grindr.

”At last, after seeing my boyfriend only virtually for almost two years, I now see him live and in person, minus the face shield,” a netizen told The Adobo Chronicles.

All’s well that ends well!
