Weekend Reflections: Honesty Or Integrity?

A few weeks ago, I bought about a dozen items from a store at the mall.  Later that evening, before going to bed, I went through the usual routine of checking out my bag of goodies, inspecting and admiring every item, and finally, going over my receipt.  I noticed that I had not been charged for one of the items in my haul.  It just wasn’t indicated on the receipt.  The cashier must have overlooked it and failed to scan the item.  I looked at the price tag of the item in question...

Philippine Floods: A Recurring Widespread Danger

Tropical Storm Gener (Saola), which hit the country towards the end of July, certainly brought back the ghosts of typhoons past, such as typhoons Ondoy and Pepeng in 2009, and Sendong late last year.  But it was the torrential rains brought in by the southwest monsoon (also called “Habagat”) following Tropical Storm Gener that had us actually relive the Ondoy nightmare last week.  This nameless monsoon put 50% of Manila underwater and (according to recent news updates)...
