QuikPost Seis: Hello again, blogging world…

It’s been a long time since I have opened this WP Blog. I missed this. Hahaha. ๐Ÿ˜€

Anyway. As I revive this web log, I’m going to focus to the hottest issues roaming around the Philippines. We’ll have an in-depth, point-by-point analysis of everything to be discussed.

So long… ๐Ÿ˜€

QuikPost Cinco: Welcome back, Anglican brethren

It is such an honor and privilege to have you back, Anglican brethren back into full communion into the Catholic Church.

Though I’ve known this news way, way back before, it is such a great news to reunite our ways. ๐Ÿ™‚

Quikpost Tres: QTV will reformat to a news channel??

Here’s the news article from Aura Marie Dagcutan of Business World


BROADCAST giant GMA Network, Inc. said on Tuesday it will be reformatting its lifestyle channel QTV 11 by first quarter of next year.

From a lifestyle channel it will become GMA News TV to recapture audience share, according to an official.

Felipe L. Gozon, GMA Network chairman and chief executive officer, told reporters at the sidelines of an appreciation dinner on Tuesday that the move will change most of the programs in the TV channel but will retain other shows that are gaining ratings.

โ€œIt will be a news-oriented TV station. GMA News TV will have shows on sports, and news and current affairs,โ€ he said.

Mr. Gozon said the company may not be able to meet its year-end target of P3 billion in profits as it posted a net income of P2.272 billion from January to September, up by 6% from last year.

โ€œWe had lower gross revenues in the third quarter. Our revenue is just about P12 billion and we had more expenses,โ€ he said.

The network, however, reported a 26% decline in net income for the third quarter at P583 million, compared with P788 million in the same period last year.

GMA Networkโ€™s consolidated revenues stood at P10.876 billion for the nine-month period, up by 8% compared with the P10.025 billion in the same period last year.

Meanwhile, GMA Network Chief Operating Officer Gilberto R. Duavit, Jr. told reporters at the same event that the company had major expenses this year related to โ€œprojects for regional push.โ€

โ€œThe company had more than P500 million for capital expenditures this year excluding certain projects,โ€ he said.

Flagship Channel 7 reported a 7% increase in revenues to P9.262 billion while Q Channel 11 recorded a 10% improvement to P346 million. The network also reported a 10% increase in international revenues to P700 million. Radio revenues reached P443 million, up by 73%.

โ€œOur radio is doing very good. It is more than what we expected. We had more or less P500 million in revenues,โ€ he said.

Operating expenses went up by 11% to P6.181 billion while general and administrative expenses rose by 8% to P2.692 billion. โ€œGMA Channel 7 has the highest contribution in our revenues with 80%. The outlook for next year is good,โ€ he said.ย  ” (Dagcutan)

Quikpost Numero Dos: In the News 12/17

As I browse for news, it happen that I got these three interesting topics from Yahoo! News:

1. Moving forward after the Manila hostage incident

Sinserong pasasalamat kay Tsang para sa kanyang sinabi. However, the question is, “How can we assure that no more OFWs in HK will be harassed by their bosses?” Maraming buwan na rin naman ang nakalipas ngunit tandaan na nakatatak na ito sa isip at puso ng mga taga-Hong Kong. Marami nang napabalitang hinaras at tinanggal sa trabaho. I do recognize that it was a fault by a Filipino but it should not be used as a derogatory trait for all of the Filipinos.

2. Credible Celeb Endorsers

The top endorsers are:

Manny Pacquiao – Now I know.
Vicki Belo – Only Belo touches my skin
Venus Raj – The Cream Silk “Stand Out” Commercial

Para sa akin, depende sa produkto kung epektibo nga bang endorser ang isang artista. Duda pa nga ako sa karamihan sa kanila kung totoo nga ba nilang ginagamit yung mga produktong yun. Nagpa-ayos sa stylist bago gawin yung shoot o ginamit niya talaga yung shampoo bago tanggalin yung helmet? Ganun ba talaga kalaki yung syanse na ginagamit sa pagluluto gamit ang isang granulated seasoning na sinlaki ng litro sachet ng juice? Sa madaling salita, hindi ako basta-basta maniniwala.

3. The Perfect Attendance

43 Congressmen have a perfect attendance in the plenary sessions in the 15th congress for the year 2010 (45 days after the opening). Sa totoo lang, mas masaklap na balita ito kesa sa mabuti. Bakit? 85% ang hindi perfect attendance. Malaking porsyento pa rin. Marami sanang batas ang maipapasa kung mas epektibo nilang gagawin ang dapat na tungkulin ng sangay na lehislatura at hindi sa iba pang bagay.

Andaming komento, ano? Haha.

Yun lang. Asado, signing off.

(P.S.: Congrats po kay Rep. Agapito Guanlao ng Butil Partylist sa kanyang perfect attendance. Hindi niyo po sinayang ang boto ko sa Butil noong nakaraang eleksyon. Nawa’y ipaglaban po ninyo ang pagsulong ng agrikultura ng Pilipinas.)

Quiknote Numero Uno: The New Pilipinas Banknotes

Got this from http://ph.yfittopostblog.com/2010/12/17/bangko-sentral-ng-pilipinas-issues-new-generation-banknotes/ by Thea Alberto

Amazing. Ang Banaue Terraces ay nasa bente na. Ang Barasoain Church ay nasa dalwandaan na rin. Si Tita Cory ay nasa 500. At si Diosdado Macapagal ay kamukha pa rin ni Tita Glo. Hehehe.

Photos are available at the link above.

Great job, BSP. Labanan ang mga counterfeits. ๐Ÿ™‚


UPDATE: Nasa unahan pala ng P200 yung panunumpa ni Tita Glo nung EDSA dos. Lower left corner. Hindi pala nawala. ๐Ÿ˜›
