WASHINGTON, D.C. (The Adobo Chronicles, Washington Bureau) – US biotechnology company Bioquark has been given permission to recruit 20 clinically dead patients and attempt to bring their central nervous systems back to life.
For starters, Bioquark decided to recruit 20 dead world leaders for their debut study.
Former Philippine President Ferdinand E. Marcos was among those chosen by Bioquark, along with Adolf Hitler, Martin Luther King, John F. Kennedy, Mahatma Ghandi and Pope John Paul VI.
The news didn’t sit well with self-proclaimed investigative journalist Raissa Robles, author of the bankrupt book, “Never Again.”
MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Commenting on the budget request from the Department of Agriculture for agricultural research, Senator Cynthia Villar urged the Government to utilize albularyos (folk, herb doctors) and manghuhulas (fortune tellers) instead.
During a recent Senate budget deliberation, Villar questioned the need to put more money into research, saying: “Bakit parang lahat ng inyong budget puro research? Baliw na baliw kayo sa research. Aanhin ninyo ba ‘yung research? (Why is your budget all about research? You’re crazy about research. Of what use is research to you?)
Speaking with The Adobo Chronicles, Villar said the government should utilize our indigenous experts more — the albularyos and manghuhulas — to help plan and implement government programs. “It literally costs just pennies,” she said.
Is a Nobel Prize in store for Villar in the field of science, medicine, economics or technology for her earth-shattering idea?
QUEZON CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Quezon City Bureau) – For the more than two and a half years that she has been incarcerated at the Philippine National Police (PNP) Custodial Center in Camp Crame, Senator Leila De Lima has never been cut off from the outside world.
She has been very active on social media, tweeting and posting screen captures of her handwritten dispatches to her supporters.
The PNP has had it with De Lima’s free ride on Camp Crame’s Internet network that it just presented a bill to the Senator representing her share of charges as invoiced by PLDT, Crame’s Internet provider.
”We are afraid the Commission on Audit (COA) might flag our excessive PLDT Internet bills, a huge percentage of which is a result of De Lima constantly accessing Crame’s wifi network,” a PNP spokesperson told The Adobo Chronicles. “After all, we pay PLDT with taxpayer money, “ he added.
De Lima faces solitary confinement with no Internet access if the bill is not paid. Her bill reportedly runs in the tens of thousands of pesos.
