    The Philippines is one of the few countries in the world to criminalize abortion in all circumstances with no clear exceptions. As a consequence, women in the Philippines continue to die or suffer grave complications from unsafe abortion procedures, producing a massive and unnecessary public health crisis and violating the fundamental human rights of Filipino women. Despite the criminal ban, in 2008 alone, an estimated 560,000 induced abortions took place in the Philippines; 90,000 women sought treatment for complications and 1,000 women died. These tragic and preventable deaths are a direct consequence of the nation's restrictive abortion law and an indirect consequence of the lack of adequate information about and access to effective modern contraceptives in the Philippines.

        The Pasig river is the lifeline of Metro Manila in the Philippines. The Asian Development Bank (ADB) y said it is cooperating with Manila Water Company Inc. to conduct an overhaul assessment of Pasig River, the Philippine capital's polluted main waterway, which threatens the health and livelihoods of around 11 million urban inhabitants. The ADB said the 27-kilometer-long Pasig River was once used by locals as a source of drinking water and fish, and a place to swim, but in recent decades it has been polluted by the increasing amounts of untreated sewage brought by rapid urbanization and insufficient sanitation systems. "Nearly 60 percent of the water pollution in metro Manila is caused by residential sewage since only about 12 percent of households are connected to a sewerage system while the rest empty their wastewater directly into the city's rivers," said Philip Erquiaga, Director General of ADB's Private Sector Operations Department. "This study will assess what needs to be done to turn the Pasig River back into the healthy, thriving heart of the city that it once was." The six-month assessment should provide key information that will lead to the building of a wastewater treatment system under Manila Water's Pasig River Catchment Sewerage Project that covers the municipalities of Quezon, Mandaluyong, Pasig, Makati, Taguig and Pateros, the ADB said. The ADB will fund 300,000 U.S. dollars for the assessment project with Manila Water covering the rest. The multi-lateral development said it is also considering to provide Manila Water with a private-sector project loan to fund implementation of the waterway treatment system.

                  Tirurai welcome dance...Teduray (Tirurai) is one of the major Indigenous Peoples of Southern Philippines. The tribe is composed of two distinct tribal groups -- the Teduray and the Lambangian tribe. The word Teduray comes from the word Tew meaning man and Duray referring to a small bamboo with a hook and a line fishing instrument. The tribe are known for their distinct and unique culture, beliefs, customs and traditions. These people exhibits strong family ties but are too dependent on other members who are more influential and affluent in the community. The Teduray are honest, soft-spoken, shy, sensitive and soft-hearted people. They are also hospitable and peace-loving. A klakafan or a traveler who is still on the road by night fall, in a fenuwo where he does not know anybody, can knock at the nearest Teduray dwelling where he will be readily accepted and given the respect and hospitality extended to strangers and guests alike.
