U.S. Senate passes comprehensive immigration reform BY MICHAEL MATHES

WASHINGTON, June 27, 2013 (AFP) – After months of wrangling, the U.S. Senate on Thursday overwhelmingly passed its comprehensive immigration reform bill that aims to put 11 million undocumented people on a path to citizenship. Chants of “Yes we did!” erupted from the public galleries after senators voted 68-32 to approve the landmark legislation, which bolsters border security, revamps legal immigration and requires a 13-year wait before those without papers can apply for citizenship. President Barack Obama hailed the vote, saying: “Today, with a strong bipartisan vote, the United States Senate delivered for the American people, bringing us a critical step closer to fixing our broken immigration system once and for all.” Fourteen Republicans joined a unanimous Democratic side in what Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid deemed a historic vote, as he took the rare move of calling on members to cast votes from their Senate desks, as Vice President Joe Biden presided over the chamber. “We’ve taken giant steps forward towards solving our immigration problem today,” an elated Senator Chuck Schumer, one of the four Democrats who crafted the bill with four Republicans in the so-called “Gang of 8,” told reporters immediately after the vote. The measure now faces a rocky road in the Republican-led House See IMMIGRATION REFORM page 12 With the Capitol building – home of the U.S. Congress in Washington D.C. – as backdrop, rallyists converge to push for the passage of the immigration reform bill, which was approved by the U.S. Senate on Thursday with a vote of 68-32. It will now move to the Republican-controlled House of Representatives, which may or may not vote on the bill. (Photo from the Reform Immigration for America Facebook Page)

Japan vows to help PHL amid China sea row MANILA, June 27, 2013 (AFP) – Japan pledged Thursday to help the Philippines defend its “remote islands”, as both governments expressed concern over China’s robust moves to stake its claims to disputed Asian waters. Japanese Defence Minister Itsunori Onodera said China’s contentious claim to nearly all of the South China Sea and its territorial dispute with Japan in the East China Sea were discussed during toplevel talks in Manila. “We agreed that we will further co-operate in terms of the defence of remote islands... the defence of territorial seas as well as protection of maritime interests,” Onodera told a joint news conference. “We face a very similar situation in the East China Sea of Japan. The Japan side is very concerned that this kind of situation in the South China Sea could affect the situation in the East China Sea,” he said, See JAPAN TO HELP, page 12

WASHINGTON, June 26, 2013 (AFP) – Asian immigrants tend to live in highly segregated enclaves in the United States and their income level is often higher than that of white Americans, said a US study out Wednesday. The nearly 18 million Asian immigrants to the United States are the country’s fastest growing minority group, more than doubling since 1990, said the research by Brown University. Data from the US Census provided a snapshot of the Chinese, Indian, Filipino, Japanese, Korean and Vietnamese living in See ASIANS BETTER, page 12

The report, “Separate but Equal: Asian Nationalities in the U.S.,” found that Asian immigrants tend to live in highly segregated enclaves in the United States and their income level is often higher than that of white Americans. Indians had the highest median household income among Asians, at $89,600 in 2010 compared to non-Hispanic whites at $54,000. Filipinos were second highest, followed by Chinese and Japanese.

PHL cops rescue 29 mail-order brides to S.Korea MANILA, June 27, 2013 (AFP) – Philippine police rescued 29 women and arrested five people accused of illegally supplying mail-order brides to South Korea, an official said Thursday. Police raided a house in Bacoor, near Manila, on Wednesday following a tip-off from a government agency that documented complaints by earlier victims, said Chief Superintendent Reginald Villasanta. “We have rescued 29 (Filipinas) who were duped into promises of an instant wealthy life through

marriage with Korean gentlemen,” Villasanta, head of a police organised crime task force, said in a statement. “(In) most cases, they ended up (on) the losing end after becoming victims of grave abuses,” he added. The act of matching Filipinas for marriage to foreign nationals on a mail-order basis was outlawed by the Philippines in 1990, with jail terms of up to See MAIL-ORDER BRIDES, page 12

Aquino urges mechanical engineers to sustain excellence MANILA, June 27 (Mabuhay) – President Benigno S. Aquino III called on the country’s mechanical engineers to sustain their excellence and competitiveness and contribute to the economic growth of the country in this era of revitalization. “The time for our long-sought rise towards inclusive growth has come, and the momentum of our transformation rests on the commitment of every sector ---Push the frontiers of your profession; sustain the level of excellence and competitiveness; and let the spirit of innovation guide you towards success,” the Chief Executive said in his message to the Philippine Society of Mechanical Engineers (PSME) on the occasion of the 2nd Mindanao Regional Conference. The PSME opened on Thursday the 2nd Mindanao Regional Conference which has for its theme “Mechanical Engineers Unite in Pursuit of Global Competitiveness” at the Grand Caprice Restaurant and Convention Center, Limketkai Drive, Cagayan de Oro City, Misamis Oriental. The three-day event, sponsored by the PSME Iligan Bay Chapter, will end on June 29. “May this conference pave the way to critical linkages and the development of new ideas, thus galvanizing your collective into one solid force in our task of nation-building,”

President Aquino said. “May you serve as agents of development, and may you further foster solidarity among our people. Together, we shall forge the equitably progressive Philippines that our citizens rightfully deserve,” he said. The conference aims to update PSME members on the advancement of engineering science and technology. (MNS)

Mayor, local officials may need to work longer hours for successful relocation of urban poor MANILA, June 27 (Mabuhay) – Mayors and local officials may need to be more patient and may spend more hours working their jobs to implement a plan that will relocate urban poor communities away from danger zones and waterways in Metro Manila. This point was raised by an official of the National Anti-Poverty Commission (NAPC), saying that the undertaking – called Peoples’ Plans because they were formulated by community members themselves—“hinges on the response time and collective efforts of the government bureaucracy.” “Let’s get these People’s Plans to work and we will definitely see a relief from flooding and a reduction in casualties and property damage after every storm,” NAPC Assistant Secretary Gina dela Cruz said in a statement. “This will require a lot of patience and hard work from our mayors but these will be their constituencies that they will be serving. And once the People’s Plans are put into action, relief will be forthcoming,” she said. These People’s Plans will be the key to finally clearing the metropolis’ rivers and esteros and at the same time, ensuring the safety, welfare and dignity of our urban poor, the statement added. A People’s Plan is a resettlement and relocation plan of an urban poor community. It is the result of intensive research, evidence-gathering, feasibility studies, among others, with the community not only participating but taking the lead and government agencies providing technical support. This collaboration has led to designs of affordable medium-rise housing programs that are still linked to their sources of livelihood. Basic social services are also thus assured. “Since 2011, NAPC has facilitated at least 20 People’s Plans covering at least 30,000 families living in danger areas in the City,” she said. These plans have been submitted to various agencies and are now undergoing the necessary processes for final approval. (MNS)

Immigration officer indicted for accepting bribes for green cards SANTA ANA, California – An immigration service officer with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) was indicted today on federal charges that allege she took thousands of dollars in bribes from three immigrants who were seeking either citizenship or lawful permanent resident status in the United States. Mai Nhu Nguyen, 47, of Irvine, was charged in a three-count indictment returned by a federal grand jury. The indictment specifically alleges three counts of solicitation and receipt of a bribe by a public official. Nguyen was arrested on June 6 after allegedly accepting a $2,200 bribe from an immigrant who was seeking United States citizenship. In addition to the bribe earlier this month, the indictment alleges that Nguyen solicited and took bribes from immigrants in 2011. In one case, Nguyen is accused of taking $1,000 from an immigrant seeking a “Green Card” and 200 egg rolls from an immigrant seeking citizenship. Nguyen, who has worked at USCIS’s

Santa Ana office for approximately eight years, is an immigration service officer with the power to approve or deny applications for immigration benefits that are submitted by immigrants. Nguyen is scheduled to be arraigned on the indictment on July 1 in United States District Court in Santa Ana. An indictment contains allegations that a defendant has committed a crime. Every defendant is presumed to be innocent until proven guilty in court. Each count of bribery by a public official carries a statutory maximum penalty of 15 years in federal prison. After being arrested, prosecutors filed a criminal complaint against Nguyen, who made her initial court appearance before a United States Magistrate Judge on June 7. Nguyen was released on a $20,000 bond and was ordered to appear for the arraignment next month. The case against Nguyen is the product of an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Department of Homeland Security Office of Inspector General.

37 CebuPac passengers seek damages over Davao mishap MANILA, June 26 (Mabuhay) – A group of 37 Cebu Pacific passengers is seeking P1-million each in damages from the airline for the Davao runway mishap earlier this month. Atty. Robert de Leon, legal counsel of the Flight 5J 791 Crash Victims Association, said the group has already sent a formal letter of their demands to Cebu Air president and CEO Lance Gokongwei. “Specifically (the letter) demands for P1-million in compensatory damages for the emotional distress they experienced,” he said. He said they expect a reply from Cebu Pacific within three weeks, after which they will decide whether to push through with a lawsuit or not. On June 2, an Cebu Pacific Airbus A320

plane, carrying 165 passengers, overshot the runway at the Davao International Airport as it landed during a rainstorm. The Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) on Tuesday suspended the pilots of the Cebu Pacific plane, but did not impose any sanctions on the airline company. De Leon said the passengers wanted the operations of the Gokongwei-led budget airline to also be suspended. “Victims would have wanted Cebu Pacific operations be suspended. Just like what the government did with other shipping companies who had similar incidents,” he said. Flight 5J 791 Crash Victims Association represents only 37 out of the flight’s 165 passengers.

Solon to refile bill granting senior citizens P1,000 monthly allowance MANILA, June 27 (Mabuhay) – Senior citizens will get a P1,000 monthly financial assistance from the government under a bill addressing their financial needs to cope up with the rising prices of basic commodities. Rep. Antonio Lagdameo, Jr. (2nd District, Davao Del Norte), author HB 1859 which he vowed to refile in the 16th Congress, said the measure will greatly help a big number of senior citizens in the country who are living below the poverty level. “The benefits provided under this measure will help alleviate living conditions of our elderly who for having offered their best years for this country deserve all the necessary assistance during their twilight years,” Lagdameo said. Likewise, the proposed Senior Citizens Financial Assistance Act shall provide a loan of P20,000 assistance to qualified elderly. To avail of the financial and other benefits, a senior citizen must be a Filipino Citizen, 60 years of age or older, unemployed and has no other source of income

or relatives capable of giving support and without adequate means of subsistence, and must be within the poverty threshold as determined by the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD). “It is the policy of the State to adopt an integrated and comprehensive approach to social development which shall make essential goods, health and other social services affordable and accessible to all,” Lagdameo said. “There shall be priority for the needs of the underprivileged, sick, disabled, women, children and the elderly,” Lagdameo added. The bill mandates the DSWD to issue an identification card to enable the qualified senior citizen to claim their quarterly financial assistance and shall assist the elderly in their application for loans. In consultation with affected sectors, the DSWD shall issue the necessary rules and regulations, publish or cause to publish the rules in a newspaper of general circulation. (MNS)

BIR files P458.36-M tax evasion raps vs. PNP supplier, CPA MANILA, June 27 (Mabuhay) – The Bureau of Internal Revenue Thursday filed before the Department of Justice tax evasion charges worth P458.36 million against a supplier of the Philippine National Police and a certified public accountant. Charged were Gigie Junio Marpa and CPA Danilo M. Lincod. In a press conference, BIR Commissioner Kim S. Jacinto-Henares said they charged Marpa for willful attempt to evade or defeat tax and deliberate failure to supply correct and accurate information in her income tax and quarterly value added tax returns and to pay the corresponding taxes due thereon for taxable years 2009 and 2010 in violation of Sections 254 and 255 of the National Internal Revenue Code of 1997. Henares said they also charged Lincod who certified the financial statements of Marpa for taxable years 2009 and 2010 in violation of Section 257 of the Tax Code. Marpa is the sole proprietor of RKGK Enterprises and is engaged in the retail of books and office supplies with business address at 3555 Heavenly Drive, San Agustin, Novaliches, Quezon City. The case against Marpa arose from a preliminary investigation conducted by the BIR on her alleged perpetration of tax evasion schemes. Information were extracted from the BIR’s Returns Processing System, Collection and Bank Reconciliation System and Alphalists of Annual Information Return of Creditable Income Taxes Withheld as well as from the Income Tax and VAT returns filed by Marpa with the BIR. Henares said a comparison of Marpa’s declarations per tax returns as against income payments made per alphalist of payees already revealed a substantial underdeclaration of income of more than 30%. An access letter was sent to the PNP requesting for details of payments made to Marpa.

From “Gaganda ka kay Gandi� to “Gagaling ka (rin) kay Gandi.� This new phrase and a newer description of Gandi Villareal seems to be the latest trend for the very popular skin care specialist and soon-to-be Dr. Villareal, who also specializes in acupuncture, as more and more people are getting “cured� by her through the ancient art of stimulating the various points in the body. And while Gandi continues to enhance her skills in the centuries-old Chinese medicine of acupuncture, Gandi is proud to announce the opening of her new Burbank clinic on Olive Street, right in the heart of the city’s most popular block of business professionals, as she takes her Filipino ingenuity to mainstream America. Just this Wednesday, June 26, Gandi welcomed invited guests to her new clinic during the Grand Opening of Gandi’s Amazing Acupuncture, where she will continue with her new medicinal and health maintenance method using China’s ancient but highlyimproved acupuncture procedures that is not only holistic but an inexpensive way of keeping both body and mind healthy. Among the invited guests were Burbank Mayor Emily Gabel-Luddy, Burbank Chamber of Commerce officials, Bb. Pilipinas-USA finalists and many others, who helped Gandi cut the ribbon during the Grand Opening of her new clinic. The blessing of the new clinic was officiated by Fr. Robert Victoria. Now located at 150 E. Olive Street, Suite 107, Burbank, CA 91502, the new Gandi’s Amazing Acupuncture has three treatment rooms, all of which are aesthetically designed for total relaxation, and equipped with the latest systems in both facial and acupuncture treatments. The clinic occupies an area of about 1,000 square feet inside the imposing brick building edifice, Gandi’s very supportive husband Jojo Garcia said. Staffed by experienced skin care specialists, Gandi will still maintain her personal attention to each customer at the new location, giving advises in skin care and providing the best acupuncture procedures to her patients. “We moved to this new location because my loyal customers deserve better treatment. They have treated me so kindly and so I’m returning the favor. Also with this new clinic, we are now reaching more customers – far beyond the Filipino-American community that has given me so much. And we’re extending this level of professional skin care and acupuncture treatments to mainstream America,� Gandi said. “And I love Burbank, the people here have been so supportive.� “Having a new business open up in Burbank is just so wonderful. We are just so proud of small businesses,� Mayor Gabel-Luddy said. The Mayor also says that Gandi’s Amazing Acupuncture is “a great addition to the city� and that Gandi’s new clinic will benefit a lot of people in Burank. The Mayor – who presented Gandi with a certificate of recognition from the City of Burbank – intimated that she too has had acupuncture done to her in the past to “relax my body� and to “help ease an elbow pain.� For his part, Burbank resident and 55 Degree Wine & Link N Hops owner Andy Hasroun said “I’m very happy to see Gandi’s new clinic in the neighborhood. It’s a great addition and I’m looking forward to it. Can’t Wait.� Hasround, who is the current chairman of the Atwater Village Chamber of Commerce, also said, “We need more businesses opening up. It is the only way to get this economic recovery going.� Gandi may be in a new clinic, but she has retained the likeliness of the Gandi Skin Care clinic in Glendale, bringing with her the kneeling woman poster that symbolizes the natural elements of Mother Earth – water, fauna, fresh air and the earth itself – a captivating fixture in Gandi’s clinic that has defined Gandi who uses traditional and holistic approach to wellness. “I am the same Gandi,� she said, and figuratively speaking, as Gandi seemed to have found the fountain of everlasting youth as she remains to be the same pretty face, with a slender and well-maintained body and the beautiful skin she possesses that we’ve seen for years as if she’s never aged one bit. Gandi’s looks are truly a testament to her skin care despite endless nights of studying to earn her doctorate degree at South Baylo University, while continuously maintaining multiple clinics and hundreds of customers, while still finding time to attend events and numerous activities that occupy Gandi’s nightlife and weekends. Gandi, of course, is one of the leading patrons of Filipino-American fundraising events, offering her services at discounted rates if not free as her way of giving back to the community. Gandi is also a celebrity skin care specialist, who has treated the likes of Dina Bonnevie, Gary Valenciano, Martin Nievera, Kuh Ledesma, Lani Misalucha, Bernardo Bernardo and many others including one of the latest visiting stars in the person of Joey Generoso of Side A Band, whose body aches from his just-concluded performances and coast-to-coast travels in the U.S. were treated by Gandi herself. Gandi has also healed local personalities, including Rhony Laigo of Weekend Balita and US Asian Post, who once complained of a sore knee after covering a brush fire in the Inland Empire. Gandi says Rhony used to suffer pains going up the stairs some years back because of some fluid that has built up in his knee, but is now pain free after just one – just one – acupuncture treatment from Gandi. Rhony shared his personal testimony right after the Grand Opening during the reception at Burbank Bar & Grille where Gandi and her family treated their guests to a sumptuous meal hosted by Vic Perez of V Entertainment. Along with Laigo, thespian Bernardo Bernardo also shared his experience with Gandi and how he’s maintaining his young looks. For an appointment, please call (818) 478-1293.

19 maltreated Pinoys seek amnesty, assistance in returning to PHL from Saudi MANILA, June 27 (Mabuhay) – Claiming they were maltreated by their employers, 19 overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) in Saudi Arabia have sought the help of the Philippine Embassy in returning home. The 19 OFWs were from Al-Jouf province and claimed to have been physically abused and intimidated by their employers, Arab News reported on Thursday. According to the 19 people, they have not had iqamas or driving licenses for the past three years. While a local labor court had ruled in their favor, their sponsor took the case to the Riyadh Appeal Courts, which scheduled a hearing in December. “We have no friends in Riyadh, we have come with all our belongings to go home since we cannot afford to stay till December when the court is take up the appeal,� Norberto Mariposque, the leader of the group, told Arab News. Mariposque said they went to Riyadh to seek help under the amnesty.

MANILA, June 26 (Mabuhay) – The head of the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) said there will be a new process for the registration of foreign recruiters and the documentation of overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) in Jordan within the next two weeks. POEA administrator Hans Cacdac mentioned this in an article of the United Arab Emirates-based publication The National, adding that there is a pending deployment ban on newly-hired workers in Lebanon. Cacdac also cited developments in Lebanon and Jordan after at least 17 undocumented workers who planned to work in those countries were intercepted by Philippine immigration authorities on June 11 and 12. The persons, disguised as tourists, were supposed to be bound for Dubai in the UAE, before they were to set off for Lebanon and Jordan. They were apparently promised wages of $300 to $1,500 US dollars. Cacdac told The National that Filipinos who seek to find work abroad should use proper channels, which is through their agency. “There is no better way than the legal way and the right way is through the POEA,� he said. The POEA administrator also warned that Filipinos who do not follow the legal recruitment procedures risk getting jobs that could have “indecent, illegal, or inhu-

man working conditions.�

In his case, Mariposque said his main problems are the non-issuance of his iqama and driving license, and delays in overtime payment. He said he was asked to work without proper papers for the entire duration of his two-year contact. “We were also subjected to maltreatment, threats, and physical abuses,� he said. The 19 Filipinos left the company when two of their co-workers were jailed on petty charges. When the two workers were released, they were threatened by the company. The 19 filed the case before the labor office in Al-Jouf on Feb. 14, 2012 and went to the Passport Department to surrender to the authorities. However, officials did not detain them as there was no case against them. On the other hand, the company cut off water and electric supply to their accommodation, prompting them to move to a house some fellow Filipinos rented out.

US Army offers path to citizenship The United States has always been a country founded upon the hard work, dedication, and courage of its historical and contemporary immigrant population. Modern day American society has

identified how important our diversified population truly is, as result; we are upon the brink of substantial immigration reform in the United States. The United States Army also recognizes

        

  

               

the importance of diversity in its international and global efforts and would like to bring awareness to its M.A.V.N.I program or the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Military Accessions Vital to the National Interestâ&#x20AC;? program. The M.A.V.N.I program is a recruiting effort, which in certain circumstances will allow certain legal, non-citizens to enlist in the Army. Participants, or soldiers who apply in the program must apply to receive expedited citizenship processing. Ultimately, the goal of the United States Army is to naturalize all soldiers by the time they graduate from ten weeks of basic training, at which point they can go directly from non-immigrant visa or asylum/refugee/ TPS status directly to citizenship, hence, bypassing the lengthy Green Card process. In regards to contemporary immigration standards, the military is the only organization that naturalizes non-citizens, prior to them having received a green card. Unfortunately, at times, while individuals wait for federal immigration reform, many experience the difficulties of the status quo, including long wait times, and slow turn around. Regardless, by joining the United States Army with its M.A.V.N.I program, applicants will not only receive citizenship in a short time, but they will also experience a multitude of other op-

portunities. Applicants will receive high quality training, which can turn into advanced schooling opportunities both within the Military and also upon completion of their military service. Secondly, applicants will also receive steady income with substantial benefits for both them and their family members. Ultimately, serving in the United States Army will also provide you with leadership experience in an honorable profession, or should you desire, career. Firstly, In order to be eligible for the M.A.V.N.I program, individuals be part of one of the following non-immigrant categories upon enlistment: E, F, H, I J, K, L, M, N, O, P, Q, R , S, T, TC, TD, TN, U or V. Applicants may also be an asylee, refugee, or temporary protected Status (TPS). Secondly, applicants must be legally present in the United States for a minimum of 2 years without a single extended absence over 90 days. Lastly, participants must meet certain Army criteria to include: a high school diploma, plus qualifying scores on the Armed Forces Qualification Test and proficiency test in their native language. Participants must speak one of 44 strategic languages, which can be found at www.goarmy.com/ info/mavni. (Nicholas Scolari)

MANILA, June 28 (Mabuhay) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; MalacaĂąang has acknowledged that eliminating or minimizing red tape in government is still a challenge but the country has been making progress. It was reported that the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Asean neighbors were able to post significant gains in fighting red tape in their respective bureaucracies. The government is exerting efforts to ensure that local government units comply with the Anti-Red Tape Act, Deputy Presidential spokesperson Abigail Valte said in a press briefing in Malacanang on Friday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Kailangan diyan; isa â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;yung Citizenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Charter. So ngayon mino-monitor natin â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;yung compliance nila (LGUs) by way of what we call the Anti-Red Tape Act report card survey,â&#x20AC;? Valte said. With the report card survey, the public can now check whether their respective municipalities comply with the Anti-Red Tape Act, she said.

Biazon denies quitting BOC post MANILA, June 27 (Mabuhay) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Customs Commissioner Rozzano â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ruffyâ&#x20AC;? Biazon denied Thursday rumors that he has resigned from the Customs bureau. Biazon said the latest resignation rumor was again timed when he is out of the country. â&#x20AC;&#x153;No, I did not (resign). Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an ongoing operation against me through stories in media. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s part of it. Just like the last time, they timed it while I am out of the country,â&#x20AC;? he said. Biazon is currently attending a World Customs Organization conference in Belgium. He will be back in the country Sunday night. In his Twitter account, Biazon thanked journalists who called or texted him to verify the rumor first. He said the resignation rumors came after his recent crackdown on â&#x20AC;&#x153;hao-shiaosâ&#x20AC;? or BOC non-organic personnel who act as collectors of corrupt Customs officials. He said he also revealed plans to reshuffle personnel in the bureau. The Customs chief said smugglers usually benefit if there is unstable leadership in BOC. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Authority of the leader is undermined. They want me out of the Bureau because their interests are threatened,â&#x20AC;? he said. (MNS)

We are stripping liens the right to a Court hearing if it is believed every day, and returning property value to our clients. Liens secured by vehicles: The most common application of lien stripping is the reduction of car loan liens to the present value of the car. Thus a lender holding a $12,000 claim secured by a car now worth $10,000 has a secured claim of $10,000 and a unsecured claim for $2,000. Two thousand dollars of the lien may be stripped off the asset (the car) in a reorganization. The plan must provide for payment in full of the secured portion of the debt; the unsecured portion can be paid little or nothing along with other unsecured claims. Recent changes to the bankruptcy law attempt to limit lien stripping on vehicles purchased within 910 days of the filing. The amendment says that “ §506 does not apply” to such vehicles. It is unclear just how courts will apply this. Some courts are publishing model Chapter 13 plans that allow the debtor to propose a strip down of cars regardless. Tax liens: Tax liens can be stripped off in reorganization proceedings (Chapter 13) to the extent that the lien does not attach to equity in property. Tax liens can’t be avoided in Chapter 7 on the grounds that they impair exemptions; if the tax is dischargeable in the Chapter 7, the bankruptcy court can determine the amount of the lien that is secured at the time of the filing.

IMMIGRATION REFORM

JAPAN TO HELP

of Representatives, but Schumer and Republican Gang of 8 Senator John McCain made a direct appeal to their colleagues on the other side of the US Capitol: work with us to achieve the most important immigration reform in a quarter century. “To our friends in the House, we ask for your consideration, and we stand ready to sit down and negotiate with you,” McCain said. “We may have different views on different aspects of this issue but we should all of us here have the same goal, and that is to take 11 million people out of the shadows, secure our borders, and make sure this is a nation of opportunity and freedom.” The legislation’s authors spent months crafting the 1,000-plus-page document, which pours $46 billion into border security and other efforts, including electronic employment verification and a modernized entry-exit system. The bill, which had Obama’s support, was debated for three weeks on the Senate floor and dozens of amendments were added as Republicans squared off against one another over the merits of the legislation.

the United States and how trends have changed. The report, “Separate but Equal: Asian Nationalities in the U.S.,” found that Indians and Japanese were the most economically advantaged nationalities, while Vietnamese had the lowest incomes and the least education among Asian groups. Still, Vietnamese tended to live in neighborhoods that were about on par with average whites, said the report. Every other Asian nationality lived on average in neighborhoods with higher incomes and more college-educated residents than non-Hispanic whites did, it said. “We are so aware of the disadvantaged situation of blacks and Hispanics that we tend to assume that segregation results in unequal neighborhoods for minorities,” said John Logan, a sociology professor at Brown University.

speaking through an interpreter. Philippine Defence Secretary Voltaire Gazmin welcomed Japan’s offer of support for its poorly resourced military. “We have agreed to continue our exchanges of information, exchanges of technology to help each other to make our defence relations stronger,” Gazmin said. Neither side offered specifics but Philippine Foreign Affairs Secretary Albert del Rosario said in February his country was expecting to get 10 new Japanese patrol boats within 18 months. The Japanese military brutally occupied the Philippines during World War II, but the two countries have since grown closer due to trade and investment, and more recently, through China’s assertiveness. Del Rosario told the Financial Times newspaper in December that a rearmed Japan would help the region counter-balance China. Onodera and Gazmin also on Thursday welcomed an increased military presence in Asia by their mutual ally, the United States. However Onodera said Japan was intent on avoiding conflict with China. “I would also like to emphasize here that the current situation should not be changed with the use of force but should be done through the rule of law,” Onodera said.

eight years for those convicted of the crime. A 2003 statute later classified the crime as human trafficking, with jail terms of up to 20 years for violators. However, Villasanta said many Filipinas are still swift to enter into whirlwind marriages with strangers in a bid to leave their impoverished country for job opportunities abroad. Nearly 10 million Filipinos, or about a tenth of the population, live and work abroad. The women are displayed in catalogues in South Korea, some of them online, Villasanta said. In many cases however, victims were fed false information about the background of their future spouse and family and suffered abuse after the marriage. These led to “abandonment of the marital home, separation and divorce”, the task force statement said. It said the Philippine embassy in Seoul had received many complaints from Filipinas who had married through mail-order. Police were tipped off about the Bacoor-based gang’s operation by a government commission that looks into the welfare of Filipinos working abroad, Villasanta said. Police did not release the names of the five suspects, who also included three Filipinos. The suspects had violated both the laws against matching brides by mail order and against human trafficking, police said.

Let us not forget the Bataan Death March in PHL Independence history During my time in college, every undergrad student LIGHTHOUSE at the University of the Philippines will not be allowed to graduate without taking the required elective on PI 100 (better known as Philippine Institution 100 ) or Philippine History. There were two prominent professors who taught this particular subject. Both of these professors have authored their Philippine History textbooks used as reference books by all Philippine high schools and universities. Both professors were well revered and respected by all of us. One was Profesor Teodoro Agoncillo and the other one was Dr. Gregorio Zaide. I can never forget my interest in Philippine History, BY MYRNA AQUITANIA particularly when numerous chapters were devoted to the Japanese time and how our soldiers fought along with Americans to free us from the Japanese. As a daughter of a US Veteran (my dad was a Lt. Col. with the 133rd Infantry of the Philippine Scouts when he was captured by the Japanese), it pains me to read the circular on â&#x20AC;&#x153;Philippine Independence Declaredâ&#x20AC;? included in the press packet distributed during the Kalayaan 2013 reception for Senator Drillon at the Sheraton downtown recently. This relevant part of Philippine history seemed to have been forgotten in our pursuit for independence. If I recall, from my PI 100 and PI 101 classes, on both Dr. Zaide and Prof. Agoncilloâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s historical accounts, they made reference to General MacArthurâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;miscalculationsâ&#x20AC;? as the cause of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. According to them, General MacArthurâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s thought process was â&#x20AC;&#x153;if the Japanese would attack at all, it would not be before April, 1942. By then, he thought, their (the American) defenses would be ready.â&#x20AC;? Unbeknownst to him, the enemy (Japanese) had their own timetable and ultimately of course, we all learned that â&#x20AC;&#x153;ten minutes on a bright Sunday morning, December 7, 1941 the first formation of Japanese fighter, bomber and torpedo aircraft roared over Oahu in Hawaii and the main target was the massive U.S. Naval fleet in Pearl Harbor.â&#x20AC;? Within minutes on the â&#x20AC;&#x153;attack on Pearl Harbor, Japanese aircraft had flown over the Manila area, striking the naval station in Cavite.â&#x20AC;? In Stanley Karnowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s book on â&#x20AC;&#x153;In our Image: Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Empire In The Philippines,â&#x20AC;? General MacArthur never entirely â&#x20AC;&#x153;recovered from his reputation and odd conduct on miscalculation regarding the capacity of the Japanese war psyche.â&#x20AC;? For fear of the Japanese Army striking on my mom and her family due to my Dadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s capture as a prisoner, they fled to the hills in our hometown and our ancestral home was occupied by the Japanese Army and turned it into a garrison. There were times when they even witnessed some of their relatives getting killed in front of them. My Dad was among those officers captured by the Japanese and was among those who survived the Bataan Death March. Per history book accounts, the Bataan Death March began on April, 1942. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was the forcible transfer of the Imperial Japanese Army of 60,00 to 80,000 Filipino and American We carry :

prisoners of war after the Battle of Bataan during World War II. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t claim to be fully knowledgeable in Philippine HIstory, but most of us know that our country, â&#x20AC;&#x153;the Philippines suffered so much atrocities during the Japanese time (1941 to 1946). Historical accounts claimed that there were â&#x20AC;&#x153;around 2,500 to 10,000 Filipinos and 100,000 to 650,000 American prisoners of war. The Death March spanned around 128 km or 80 miles from Mariveles and Balanga, Bataan to San Fernando, Pampanga and from San Fernando, survivors were loaded to a box train and the wounded or dead were brought to Camp Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Donnell in Capas, Tarlac.â&#x20AC;? Under the Japanese rule, â&#x20AC;&#x153;cruelty and brutality is routine. They were taught to equate surrender with disgrace.â&#x20AC;? To these Japanese troops according to some diaries acquired after the war, â&#x20AC;&#x153;beheadings, mutilations and Memorable photo with my Dad, Moises Lachica killings of thousands of Filipinos Aquitania, who survived the Death March, my mom and American soldiers were a Rogelia Yap and grandma, Potenciana Ebuen Yap. bizarre brand of romantic sadismâ&#x20AC;? to the point of â&#x20AC;&#x153;exalting the skill of the executioner, the beauty of his blade and the courage of the victim.â&#x20AC;? Though my Dad, as an officer was one of the prisoners who survived, the stories he related to my Mom and their family included utmost Japanese brutality inflicted on the prisoners. According to him, â&#x20AC;&#x153;thousands were beaten, bayoneted and there were even between 350 to 400 Filipno officers who were executed after they have surrendered. The prisoners marched without food or water and they starved for three days. Many of them died along the way from heat, exhaustion, sometimes they were buried alive by their comrades at the side of the road. Those prisoners who were unable to walk and fall behind were beaten, mutilated and bayoneted.â&#x20AC;? Some of those who fell were beheaded by â&#x20AC;&#x153;Japanese officers who were practicing with their samurai swords from horseback. In their culture, the Japanese believed their brutality on the prisoners was not considered a crime because in their view, any warrior who surrendered had no honor, thus theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not treated as humans and their rationale was that the prisoners deserve to be treated like animals.â&#x20AC;? Inflicted with various disease complications from participating in the Death March, my Dad passed away at the young age of 25 years old, a year after the Philippines was granted its independence. The last paragraph on the circular distributed during the Kalayaaan 2013 states â&#x20AC;&#x153; In 1935, the Commonwealth of the Philippines was established with U.S. approval, and Manuel Quezon was elected the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s president. On July 4, 1946, full independence was granted to the Republic of the Philippines by the United States.â&#x20AC;? In our pursuit for independence, we should all be reminded that the atrocities we suffered from the Japanese from 1941 to 1946 and the significance of the Death March as part of Philippine history during World War II, should never be forgotten.

Permanent resident can appeal long term absence from Canada Q. I became a permanent resident of Canada about six years ago. After I entered for the first time I only stayed in Canada for two years. I have not been back since. My permanent card expired and I applied for a visa to return. It was denied. How do I get back? My wife and children still live in Canada. I was required to leave because my parents were ill. They are now deceased. How do I get myself back to be with my family?

A. The law states that a permanent resident reIMMIGRATION mains a permanent resident at all times until a final determination has been made. If you applied for a NEWSWEEK travel document then you must have received a letter of refusal. That refusal can be appealed and should be appealed immediately. By appealing you keep your PR status alive and at appeal you can explain to the judge the reasons for your lengthy absence. Q. I arrived in Canada approximately six years ago as a tourist with my wife. We now have a Canadian born child. It was never our intention to overstay but I was offered a job as an electrician and BY HENRY MOYAL I was promised that the employer would petition me for permanent resident status. Unfortunately, the employer went out of business and I have been working at odd jobs ever since. I want to apply to for permanent residence but my biggest problem has been the fact that I was using someone else’s name. As such, I am not sure in what direction I should proceed with my application. I have no relatives in Canada but I have several friends in Vancouver who have assured me there are jobs available in my field. What do I do? A. I think you have some strong points but obviously there are concerns regarding a few matters. You have a window of opportunity but you must implement a good strategy to be successful. Firstly, using someone else’s name can be rectified depending on the extent thereof. Did you enter using someone else’s name but worked under your real name? The bottom line is that every applicant has the onus of providing proof of genuine work experience in an occupation in demand. The occupation of electrician is in demand and therefore you are on the right track. If you have an offer of employment in Canada, that is a plus too. You also need to decide where to file the application. If you file in Manila, it is possible that no interview will be necessary. Q. I am married to a Canadian Citizen. We have a child together. The problem is that when we married I was under the impression that my previous marriage in the Philippines was annulled. I just found out from my attorney in Manila that the annulment was only in process but never finalized. My exspouse just died. How do I reveal all this to immigration without facing a charge Atty.

Warning: Before you hire a debt settlement company If you are delinMINDING YOUR quent on your debts, FINANCES you may be able to avoid dealing with the bill collectors for a few months but sooner or later, you will still need to face the reality of your debt problems and do something to proBY ATTY. RAY BULAON tect yourself. For example, creditors will probably wait until you are 60 days late before they hand over your account to their internal collections department. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had a loss of income, your creditors may even tell you about their hardship program that will allow you to make lower payments at a significantly reduced interest rate. Others will close your account which means that you can no longer use your credit card until the debt is paid in full. No matter what you are offered by the creditor at this point, however, it is only temporary and will not help you if your hardship continues for longer than a few months. Once youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re 90 days late, creditors start to become more aggressive. Some creditors will turn the account over to an outside collection agency. Of course, by this time,

your debts continue to snowball as the creditors continue to add interest and penalties to the original amount owed. Federal and state collection laws prohibit abusive collection tactics but the reality is that a lot of bill collectors do not follow these laws and will make your life miserable by harassing you for payment. If the creditor decides that you probably will not pay back the debt, they may write it off their books and report the account as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;charge offâ&#x20AC;? to the credit bureaus. To recoup the creditorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s losses, the account can then be sold to a third-party collection agency who buys the account for a fraction of the original amount owed. At this point in the collection process, you may be able to negotiate a drastic reduction of the debt amount and pay the creditor 20-50% of the amount owed. Should you do it yourself, hire a lawyer or is hiring a debt settlement company a good idea? If you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel confident dealing with creditors yourself, you may be tempted to hire a debt settlement company to avoid the expense of hiring an attorney. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do it! Remember that a debt settlement company cannot legally represent you if you are sued and thus, they cannot protect your legal rights. Also keep in mind that some creditors will flat out inform you that they refuse to work with a debt settlement company and if this happens, that means you leave them no other option but to file a lawsuit against you! I have seen a lot of unscrupulous debt settlement

companies who misrepresent their services to the public and offer false hopes to unsuspecting consumers who are desperate for a solution. A lot of these debt settlement companies do not clearly explain to you how their debt settlement program works before they ask you to sign a contract with them. Their advertising sounds so good and once you call them, they tell you nothing but lies just to suck you in. They do not tell you anything about the potential downfalls of hiring them and often make big promises that they cannot deliver. Be careful in hiring a debt settlement company or you may end up in a worse situation with your credit with no solution to your debt problems. If you are in debt and think debt settlement or filing bankruptcy may be a solution for you, we are here to help you figure out your best option. For a free consultation, call my office at Toll-Free 1-866-477-7772 and we will help you step by step in finding a solution thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s right for you.

as you are not legal spouses of one another. Q. I came to Canada five years ago as a permanent resident. My permanent residence was conditional. I was required to fulfil some conditions â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to which I did not. I did not comply with the conditions and basically I have not notified the immigration department. It is now time to renew my permanent resident card. Can I ? Should I just apply for Canadian Citizenship instead? A. You can certainly apply for Canadian Citizenship but I doubt it will be granted. In my experience they will hold your application and/or refuse it because they will see that the terms and conditions of your landing have not been removed. You are therefore in violation of the immigration act. You have stated that you never contacted

immigration. As such, it is safe to assume that no one has contacted you nor have you been issued a report for the violation. This will certainly be discovered upon applying for a permanent resident card. Therefore, you can do nothing or face the music and apply for the card and try to explain why the conditions were not met once you are issued a report for violation. That will certainly mean one or more court appearances. Attorney Henry Moyal is a certified and licensed Canadian Immigration Lawyer in Toronto, Ontario. The above article is general advice only and is not intended to act as a legal document. Send questions to Attorney Henry Moyal by or email canada@moyal.com or call toll free at 1 888 8472 078.

A. That is a very good question. It seems you are aware that you married your current spouse while you were still married to someone else. It is irrelevant that the first spouse has now died because the act of bigamy was committed when she was alive. As a side note to readers: always have a copy of the divorce / annulment in your hand before remarrying. In my opinion, you were under the mistaken belief that you were free to re-marry and therefore no deliberate action was done to commit the criminal act (of bigamy). The best approach would be to have your Canadian sponsor you as a common law partner

OPINION

Palace reiterates its willingness to talk peace with NPA rebels

Malacañang said it remains open to negotiating peace with the communist rebels despite the lull in the talks and continuing violence on the ground in the past several months. In a press briefing in the Malacañang on Tuesday, Deputy Presidential spokesperson Abigail Valte said the Aquino administration will always be ready to talk peace with the communists as long as there are no preconditions set to restart the discussions. “We’ve always manifested our intent to keep talking to them but, even from the beginning, we have said that there should be no preconditions; we all come to the table with good intentions and with good faith,” Valte told reporters. “Down the line, we have seen incidents that would cast doubt on those intentions, at least coming from the other side. But at this point, as Alex Padilla said, the government is still open to talking to them,” she said. Padilla, the government’s chief negotiator with the rebels, resigned as both sides have not conducted formal talks in the last two years. As the Aquino government has not wavered on talking peace with the communists, Valte said the major issue is sincerity of both sides. She said the communists have not shown its sincerity as manifested by recent events on the ground such as the attacks conducted by the New People’s Army (NPA) and the kidnapping of five soldiers in Davao City. “There are several incidents that would indicate a sincerity problem when it comes to the talks, at least on their side,” Valte said. One of the stumbling blocks for the talks include the demand of the communist insurgents to free political prisoners detained in government prisons saying some of them serve as consultants for the talks for the rebel side.

Statement by President Obama on Senate passage of Immigration Reform Today, with a strong bipartisan vote, the United States Senate delivered for the American people, bringing us a critical step closer to fixing our broken immigration system once and for all. I thank Majority Leader Reid, Senator Leahy, Senator Schumer, and every member of the ‘Gang of Eight’ for their leadership, and I commend all Senators who worked across party lines to get this done. The bipartisan bill that passed today was a compromise. By definition, nobody got everything they wanted. Not Democrats. Not Republicans. Not me. But the Senate bill is consistent with the key principles for commonsense reform that I – and many others – have repeatedly laid out. If enacted, the Senate bill would establish the most aggressive border security plan in our history. It would offer a pathway to earned citizenship for the 11 million individuals who are in this country illegally – a pathway that includes passing a background check, learning English, paying taxes and a penalty, and then going to the back of the line behind everyone who’s playing by the rules and trying to come here legally. It would modernize the legal

immigration system so that it once again reflects our values as a nation and addresses the urgent needs of our time. And it would provide a big boost to our recovery, by shrinking our deficits and growing our economy. Today, the Senate did its job. It’s now up to the House to do the same. As this process moves forward, I urge everyone who cares about this issue to keep a watchful eye. Now is the time when opponents will try their hardest to pull this bipartisan effort apart so they can stop commonsense reform from becoming a reality. We cannot let that happen. If you’re among the clear majority of Americans who support reform – from CEOs to labor leaders, law enforcement to clergy – reach out to your Member of Congress. Tell them to do the right thing. Tell them to pass commonsense reform so that our businesses and workers are all playing by the same rules and everyone who’s in this country is paying their fair share in taxes. We have a unique opportunity to fix our broken system in a way that upholds our traditions as a nation of laws and a nation of immigrants. We just need Congress to finish the job.

ENTERTAINMENT

Sarah G explains ‘sweetness’ with Matteo Sarah Geronimo explained the apparent sweetness between her and Matteo Guidicelli, as seen in viral videos of the two while on the pop singer’s concert tour overseas. The 24-year-old actor, who co-starred with Geronimo in the 2011 romanticcomedy film “Catch Me, I’m in Love,” was one of Kapamilya singer’s guests on her “24/SG” concert series in the United

States early this month. In one of the videos, Guidicelli is seen kissing Geronimo on her hand while performing the Prince hit “Kiss.” The 24-year-old singer explained that she and Guidicelli had rehearsed their “sweet” dance steps on stage. “Kailangan mag-work kami, mageffort ang bawat isa na mawala lahat ng hiya. ‘Yun nga, parang acting din.

Kailangan, halimbawa, kung ang istorya ng kanta ay gusto niya ako, kailangan lumabas na ganoon, gusto niya ako, na hinahabol-habol niya ako,” she said. Geronimo admitted, however, that the actor’s kiss was not part of what the choreography they had practiced. Asked about her new “discoveries” about Guidicelli during their two-week stay in the US, the actress-singer said, “Si Matteo, napaka-cute niya na tao, napaka-respectful, marami siyang endearing qualities. Nakakatuwa.” Geronimo went on to enumerate the qualities she looks for in a man, bringing up her most admired traits about her father, Delfin. “Si daddy kasi, bukod sa faithful, talagang mararamdaman mo ‘yung pagsiserve niya sa mommy ko, ‘yung walang kapaguran na... tsaka laging priority kung ano ‘yung gusto ng mommy ko.

Sobrang taas ng respeto niya sa mommy ko, na sobrang kong ina-idolize ko siya roon,” she said. The older Geronimo, who later joined his daughter in the interview, then gave words of advice for the Kapamilya singer, whose love life has time and again become the subject of headlines. “Sana pag-aralan mo muna mabuti ‘yung mga dumarating. Siyempre sa sobrang... masakit kasi minsan, akala mo ‘yung totoo na, tapos ganoon lang pala ‘yung ano... “Kaya talagang salain mo muna mabuti. May kasabihan nga tayong pitong beses mo muna isipin ang gagawin mo bago mo gawin, para hindi maging pangit ‘yung epekto sa’yo, o ma-experience mo na, ‘Ay, sana nakinig nalang ako kay mommy at kay daddy.’ Kaya mo na ‘yan,” he said.

Anne Curtis wants to do more concerts Sarah Geronimo

More than a year since she staged her successful “Annebisyosa” concert at the Araneta Coliseum, actress Anne Curtis continues to tour the show, which has is also called “No Other Concert.” Just recently, Curtis presented the concert in the US and she said she hopes to do more concerts in the future. “Hopefully more concerts to come,” Curtis said after the success of her US show, adding that it is still her dream to perform with international pop star Beyonce. Curtis admitted that she was initially nervous about performing for her kababayans abroad. “it’s different being in a far away country and being able to perform for our Anne Curtis kababayans. It just got me nervous all over again. But after the first couple of songs finally I was at ease,” she said. Before the year ends, Curtis is expected to return to US to promote the independent movie “Blood Ransom.” (MNS)

Rumored lovers Rocco Nacino, Lovi Poe in new TV series ROCCO Nacino will reunite with rumored flame Lovi Poe in the upcoming primetime Kapuso series “Hanggang Ngayon.” Directed by Laurice Guillen, the project will be their third show together after “Love Bug” and “Yesterday’s Bride.” “I’m really, really excited na makakatrabaho ko ulit si Lovi and I’m looking forward to lots of learning and new experiences,” Rocco said. Asked if the project will only fuel rumors about his special friendship with Lovi, Rocco smiled and said: “We’ll see. But one thing is for sure, between me and Lovi, it’s going to be easy kasi yung chemistry ay nandoon na. It comes with work naman, yung mga intriga.” Lovi and Rocco will be joined in the series by Charee Pineda, Solenn Heusaff and Cesar Montano. Rocco will also play the life of missing activist Jonas Lovi and Rocco Burgos in “Burgos Film,” which will be shown in the Cinemalaya Film Festival in July. “Very sensitive yung film kasi binuksan ulit yung case and nandoon din yung family ni Jonas Burgos nung nag shoot kami. Kinakausap ko yung mga kapatid niya and nakikita daw nila si Jonas sa akin. I felt good kasi I was able to achieve yung (expectations nila),” he said. Lorna Tolentino and Tirso Cruz III will breathe life to Jonas’ parents Editha and Joe Burgos, respectively.

The 30-year-old singer said he has conceded that his critics are not likely to change their opinion of his sexuality. “Noong una, siyempre [napipikon ako], pero ngayon, kung anuman ‘yung ipakita mo sa kanila, hindi mo naman sila mapiplease,” he said. “Kung anuman ‘yung paniniwalaan nila, ‘yung pa rin naman ‘yung pinaniniwalaan nila eh. Bahala na kayo sa buhay niyo,” said Santos, who is celebrating his 10th anniversary as a professional singer. To mark his decade-long career, the

“ASAP” mainstay is releasing two albums—“The Erik Santos Collection,” a compilation of all the film and TV series theme songs he has performed, which is now out in stores; and a new all-original album.Ten years since he emerged champion in the Kapamilya singing contest “Star in a Million,” Santos has a clear vision of where he wants to take his career. “[Singing is what I do best] and feeling ko ‘yun ang strength ko,” he said in an earlier interview. “Mag-offer nang magoffer ng kanta, masaya o malungkot. Iyon ang direksyon ng career ko. ‘Yun pa rin.” (MNS)

No on-screen rivalry between Julia Barretto, Kathryn Bernardo YOUNG actress Kathryn Bernardo dismissed on-screen rivalry with the newest member of the Star Magic family, 16-year-old showbiz royalty Julia Barretto. The two are often compared because of their fan base and acting skills. “Ayoko talaga na kino-compare ka, kahit naman siguro sinong tao ayaw nilang ma-compare. May iba naman akong personality, may ibang akong goal kung ano talaga ang gusto ko. I’m sure naman ayaw din ni Julia na na-compare siya,” Kathryn said. She said she is not competing with Julia, whose aunt Gretchen was her co-star in hit evening series “Princess and I.” “Pretty naman talaga siya, parang

si Tita Gretchen (Barretto), sana huwag na lang nila gawan ng issue or something,” she said. On the possibility of love team Daniel Padillla being paired with Julia or any other young actresses, Kathryn said ABS-CBN knows what’s best for them. “Hindi naman din talaga maiiwasan na i-pair si DJ (Daniel) sa iba. Depende naman talaga yun sa management kung anong plans nila for him, and of course ako, darating din sa time na i-pair ako sa iba,” she said. Kathryn and Daniel will star in the horror flick “Pagpag,” an official entry of Regal Films, Skylight and ABS-CBN Productions Inc. for the Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) this December (MNS)

Marian Rivera was named as FHM magazine’s “Sexiest Woman in the Philippines” for 2013 after she got the most number of votes out of the millions cast by readers of the men’s magazine. FHM Philippines announced on its official website that the 28-year-old actress was voted “The Philippines’ Finest” after she garnered a total of 890,490 votes out of the 16 million cast via online, text, and print ballots. Rivera won the same title in 2008, and placed 5th last year in the same poll. Marian Rivera “Ang saya lang Hindi ko ini-expect,” Rivera was quoted as saying by FHM shortly after being informed of her win in the survey. “Iyon ‘yung masarap, ‘yung hindi mo ini-expect na mananalo ka tapos ibibigay sa’yo. Mas masarap kunin ang isang award na wala kang inaasahan,” she said. Trailing the GMA-7 star to rank second is former “Pinoy Big Brother” housemate Sam Pinto, last year’s No. 1. The actress-host got 778,681 votes. From placing second in 2012, Kapamilya actress Angel Locsin moved down a spot to place third in this year’s edition of “Sexiest Women” survey.

etting kids back to school each morning can be exhausting and feeding them a good, hot breakfast often gets put on the back burner. Start them out right with easy, wholesome meals full of the protein necessary to fuel their day. A protein-rich breakfast — one that includes lean ham or pork sausage — reduces daily hunger, increases daily fullness, improves morning blood sugar control and leads to less latter-day snacking, according to a recent study by the University of Missouri. That means teenage boys and girls who chronically skip breakfast have a new, tasty weapon in the fight against obesity. Studies show as many as 20 to 30 percent of adolescents in the United States skip breakfast, which is a habit associated with excess body weight. Keep breakfast well-balanced by packing it full of protein; using only egg whites; reducing fat intake with Johnsonville’s breakfast chicken sausage with 50 percent less fat; and rounding out the meal with whole grains, fruits and vegetables. Think you have no time for breakfast? Try recipes that can be prepared ahead of time, served as grab-and-go, or stored in the freezer and microwaved as needed. Use a slow cooker to prepare dishes before bedtime and your family will wake up to house filled with the delicious aromas of a freshly-prepared breakfast.

1/4 cup red bell pepper, chopped Fresh chives or green onions, chopped In a bowl, combine hash browns, butter, salt and pepper. Press mixture onto bottom and up sides of greased muffin cups. Bake at 400°F for 12 minutes or until lightly browned. Meanwhile, cook sausage according to package directions; cut into 1/2-inch pieces. Divide sausage among muffin cups. Combine eggs, cheese and bell pepper. Spoon over sausage. Sprinkle with chives or green onions. Bake for 13 to 15 minutes

A woman’s face drives relationship length: study (PARIS-AFP) – Men looking for a quick fling prefer women with more “feminine” facial features, said a study Friday that delved into the evolutionary determinants of the mating game. Feminine features like a smaller jaw-

bone or fuller cheeks are closely linked to a woman’s perceived attractiveness, which in turn is taken as an indicator of health, youth and fidelity and other traits, it said. Feminine features are associated with a higher level of the female hormone oestro-

gen, which is also linked with reproductive success. Studies on factors that influence human mating mostly focus on women, who have shown a similar preference for a hunkier man for a fling but a geekier one to settle down with – possibly a more reliable bet for helping to raise children. In a study with several hundred heterosexual male volunteers, a team of researchers made composite pictures of women’s faces, and asked the men which ones they would choose for long- or short-term relationships. There were two versions of each face – one with slightly more feminine and the other more masculine features. The faces were taken from European or Japanese faces. They found that men rated women with more feminine features more highly for a fling. The preference was especially high among men who were already in a steady relationship. “When a man has secured a mate, the potential cost of being discovered may increase his choosiness regarding short-term partners relative to unpartnered men, who can better increase their short-term mating success by relaxing their standards,” wrote the study authors.

But in making long-term choices, men “may actually prefer less attractive/feminine women,” they added. Previous research has found that attractive women are likelier to be unfaithful, particularly if their partner is ugly. “If his partner cheats on him, a man risks raising a child which is not his own,” explained the authors. The study, led by Anthony Little from the University of Stirling and Benedict Jones from the University of Glasgow, appears in the British Journal of Psychology.

Oily fish helps fight breast cancer (PARIS, France-AFP) – Eating a portion of tuna, salmon, sardines or other oily fish once or twice a week reduces the risk of breast cancer, according to a review published by the British Medical Journal (BMJ) on Thursday. Researchers based in China looked at 26 previously published studies covering more than 800,000 volunteers in the United States, Europe and Asia whose health was monitored and who gave details about their eating habits. Oily fish is rich in so-called n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids, or n-3 PUFAs, which are involved in the immune system, bloodvessel activity and chemical messaging in the brain. The group of n-3 PUFAs has four members, known by their initials of EPA, DPA and DHA, which are mainly found in oily fish, and ALA, which is chiefly found in nuts, seeds and leafy vegetables. The analysis showed that women with a high intake of n-3 PUFAs had a 14-percent reduction in risk of breast cancer compared with those who had a low intake. But the protective effect came only for fatty acids that come chiefly from fish, and not for ALA acids.

The health benefits of SPF moisturizers By DAHL BRAVO

Moisturizing your skin with an SPF rated formula is important for your health as well as your appearance. Let’s take a look at some of the important reasons why you should be using an SPF moisturizer on a daily basis. Prevent Skin Damage from the Sun The sun does more than burn your skin. It’s harmful ultraviolet rays also damage your skin’s collagen fibers and make it age faster. By protecting it with an SPF moisturizer, you’re not only safer from skin cancer but your skin will often look younger than your age. Some studies have shown that up to 70% of skin aging can be attributed to the effects of the suns rays. Exposing your skin to the sun also dries it out, causing wrinkles, freckles and areas of pigmentation commonly called age spots or “liver spots” because of their color. Its is important that you view the use of an SPF moisturizer as a long term investment into the health of your skin. While you may not notice much difference in the short term you will be preventing damage to your skin and you will certainly have healthier, younger looking skin in the future. SPF Moisturizers Help with Acne Using an SPF moisturizer will also help those people whose skin is prone to acne. By protecting your skin from the sun’s radiation, a moisturizer discourages the over production of the oils that can clog pores and cause skin eruptions. Most acne products that people use to treat their acne contain chemicals that dry out the skin. A good moisturizer can help to reverse the effects of these chemicals and help to replenish dry skin. Have you ever stopped to wonder how much money women (and even some men) spend to look younger, or to prevent the appearance of wrinkles? Just look at the immense options of Anti-Wrinkle creams available these days, it’s insane. Yes, it’s nothing new that society has become paranoid of aging (as if aging is something to be ashamed of), but yet we know that aging is something we can not escape from, no matter how much Anti-Wrinkle cream, Botox, Facelifts or Fat Injections we do. It’s the course of nature and the cause of gravity. However, there are things that we can do on a daily basis to help postpone the signs of aging, and make wrinkles look less “saggy” and obvious. And it’s actually by using a really inexpensive little magic potion that we often don’t give much thought and importance to: DAHL BRAVO is a Registered Nurse who also specializes in aesthetics and dermatology.

COMMUNITY Gays celebrate landmark U.S. marriage rulings BY JOE FITZGERALD SAN FRANCISCO, June 26, 2013 (AFP) – Gays and lesbians across the United States erupted in celebration Wednesday after the Supreme Court passed two landmark rulings on same-sex marriage in their favor. In San Francisco, which has one of the biggest gay communities in the country, more than 400 people had gathered at City Hall for the early morning decisions broadcast from Washington, DC. Dressed in a full-length white wedding dress, Jenni Chang kissed her partner of five years Lisa Dazols when the rulings – which include lifting a same-sex marriage ban in California – were announced.

FULL and PART TIME PROGRAMS

ONE MONTH PROGRAM

“We’ll get married now. We’re going today. It feels amazing that our government supports us,” said Dazols, wearing a purple tie and black vest and slacks. “We’ll pay more taxes, but that’s okay,” added Chang. When the first ruling was announced, on the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act, the crowds exploded in cheers, stamped their feet and couples threw their arms up in the air together. “It feels good to see love triumph over ignorance, and that began here in San Francisco,” said city mayor Ed Lee. The celebrations echoed those among an estimated 1,000 supporters of same-sex marriage who gathered under brilliant sunshine outside the high court in Washington, DC for the historic rulings. Washington lawyer Alex Kaplan, 33, kissed his 45-year-old French partner Olivier Basdevant when the DOMA ruling was announced. “It’s a dream come true – it will have a profound effect on our family,” said Kaplan. Basdevant said the ruling will allow Kaplan to sponsor him for a US green card to stay in country permanently. “We’ll be able to adopt kids and provide all the stability we need in life,” he said. Amanda Werner, a 24-year-old bisexual law student, said she came from California to Washington for the ruling. “To see it dismissed is a great feeling. It is such a great outcome for us. It was time,” she said. There was a more muted initial response in San Francisco to the Supreme Court’s ruling on Proposition 8, a 2008 California ballot initiative that saw the nation’s most populous state ban same-sex marriage. Although it opens the door for gay couples to wed in the western state, it does not put an end to litigation. The Prop 8 decision means that the legal fight will likely return to the courts in California. “You always hope there’ll be a large sweep, but we knew this would be a long fight,” said Dazols. California governor Jerry Brown ordered local officials to resume issuing marriage licenses to gay couples as soon as possible – but this may take at least 25 days, according to the LA Times. “After years of struggle, the US Supreme Court today has made same-sex marriage a reality in California,” he said, adding that gay couples will only be able to marry once the stay of a lower court injunction is lifted. Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa also praised the rulings, saying: “Today we have taken another momentous step on the path to full equality and dignity for all Californians and all Americans.” “With the court’s decision on Prop 8, California is poised to become the 13th state in America with full marriage equality. “Today we celebrate a victory for love and fairness, a victory for same-sex couples who only want to follow their hearts and marry the person they love.” Online search giant Google also got in on the celebrations: typing “gay” into its ubiquitous search window produced a rainbow-colored box, a symbol of sexual diversity.

Explaining the immigration quota (Paul Choi is an immigration atCHOIce torney and professor of law located at 5900 IMMIGRATION CORNER Sepulveda Blvd. Ste 303, Sherman Oaks, CA. 91411. Atty Choi will answer all questions regarding immigration and naturalization for free. Address questions to pchoi@pchoilaw.com or telephone 818 714-2226. Atty Choi is pleased to announce that his administrator is Philip Abramowitz .) Question: I am a U.S. citizen. I petitioned to immigrate my sister from the Philippines five years ago by filing a form I-130 with the USCIS. Yesterday, I BY ATTY. received a notice from the INS that the petition was PAUL CHOI approved and sent to the National Visa Center for further processing. How soon will I receive forms from the National Visa Center? When will my sister be able to come here now that her petition has been approved? I have waited a long time and I am anxious to see her. She is married and her husband was born in Australia. Answer: One of the most difficult things to explain about immigration law is the concept of an immigrant visa quota and how this quota affects immigration. Your question is a prime example of the confusion and misunderstanding suffered by persons seeking to immigrate to this country. Before an intending immigrant can obtain permanent residence, a visa petition must be filed with the USCIS. Normally a petition is filed by a relative such as a parent, spouse, adult child or sibling, but it can also be filed by an employer where there is a job offer and a labor certification and in some cases it can even be filed by the applicant himself. Due to the large number of immigrant visa petitions that are filed each year, the USCIS has developed a backlog in the processing and adjudication of these petitions. It is not uncommon to wait six months or even several years before receiving a decision on a pending petition. The different USCIS offices and Service Centers publish a list of approximate processing times for petitions that is available on the internet at USCIS. gov. However, just because your visa petition is finally approved does not necessarily mean that your sister is immediately eligible to obtain her greencard. This is where the immigrant visa quota comes in. Many years ago the United States realized that it could not accommodate all the immigrants throughout the world that sought permanent residence in this country. It therefore established a quota system where the government could put limits or caps on the number of immigrants that could enter the U.S. each year. Based upon the number of available visas and the number of immigrant visas issued each fiscal year, the government could publish a bulletin stating the filing date of the petitions it was currently processing for permanent residence. Since the processing of applications for permanent residence was done on a first-filed, first-served, basis, the petitions that were filed the soonest yielded immigrant visas the soonest. This publication of visa availability based upon priority date of filing is called the Visa Bulletin. It is published monthly by the U.S. State Department and can be accessed also on the internet at WWW.travel.state. gov or at google by typing in the search words, â&#x20AC;&#x153;visa bulletin.â&#x20AC;? Normally, the priority dates that are being served each month change depending upon the number of visas that are issued the previous months and the number of visas remaining for the fiscal year. Often the priority dates that are being processed advance each month but there are months that see no advancement or even some retrogression again depending upon demand and the number of visas previously issued. Therefore, there are two different processing times that must be taken into consideration. Firstly, as stated above, there is the processing times of the USCIS for the petition, itself. Secondly, once the petition is approved, the applicant must check the

TEARS OF JOY Victoria Sabatin wipes her tears while hubby George narrates their first meeting and his deep admiration for her. The Sabatins of of the City of Carson celebrated their 25th Wedding Anniversary last Saturday, June 22. The wedding was officiated by Pastor Pat Schorr at the Calgary Chapel in Vermont. Reception followed at the Toyota Hall Torrance. The couple and their children Angelica, Kristina and Eric, would like to express their heartfelt appreciation to those who came to the event, and for sharing the day with them. Their children surprised the celebrants with a slideshow and video montage which brought tears to the viewers and their parents. Another video montage was prepared by George entitled â&#x20AC;&#x153;Then and Nowâ&#x20AC;?, that narrated the coupleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s love for each other. When asked about the secret of their union they replied, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We live a simple life, providing for our siblings and living by example. We made God as the center of our life. And most important, we find time for each other, especially now that the kids are grown upâ&#x20AC;?. PHOTO BY JUN CAMACHO/FRONTLINERS

visa bulletin to determine if visas are available for the priority date or filing date of the petition. If the priority date is now being processed, it is said that the quota is open or available and the intending immigrant can file for permanent residence. If the priority date is not yet being processed, it is said that the quota is regressed or backlogged and the applicant must wait months or even years for his particular priority date to be called. It is therefore important to file an immigrant visa petition as early as possible to establish the best priority date as the date of filing, not the date of approval, controls. Finally, to confuse matters even more, there is the concept of alternate chargeability. This applies to persons who are married to someone from another country. Alternate chargeability allows a petitioned immigrant to use his or her countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quota, or the quota of his or her spouse, whichever is faster. Since countries such as the Philippines, China, Mexico and India are constantly separated from the rest of the world for having the most intending immigrants, their quota are often longer than those of other countries. These persons may benefit from alternate chargeability if they are married and the quota from their spouseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s country is more advanced or shorter than their quota.

Your debts and Samson (PART I) If you have debt problems, think of Samson. Samson lived in Israel about 1200 B.C. Before he BANKRUPTCY was born, the Israelites betrayed the one true God again by going back to their ungodly ways. God punished the Israelites by delivering them over to the Philistines who worshipped the false god Dagon. Thus, the Israelites were living under the yoke of Philistine rule for 40 years. Samson was granted supernatural strength by God to fight the Philistines as well as perform heroic feats in the name of God. An angel of the Lord in human form appears to the BY ATTY. barren wife of Manoah, an Israelite, and promises LAWRENCE YANG her that she will have a son who will deliver Israel from the oppression of the Philistines. However, God’s condition was that both mother and son must abstain from all alcoholic beverages, and not to shave or cut his hair. Following these conditions, Samson would become a “Nazarite of God” who dedicated his life to God. In exchange, God would give Samson supernatural strength. Move over Superman, Batman and Spiderman. Samson was actually the world’s first super hero because of his gift from God, the one true God, the God of Moses and Israel, my God, who sent His only Son, Jesus, who willingly agreed to become man and die on the cross for us because He loves us so, that we may have eternal life with Him after our earthly life expires. Samson was born 1,200 years before Jesus was born through the Blessed Virgin Mary in a manger in Bethlehem. As a young man, Samson falls in love with a Philistine woman. Although his parents object, Samson decides to marry the woman who worships the false god Dagon. On the way to visit his fiancé, Samson is attacked by a lion. Samson rips the lion apart with his bare hands! Sometime later, when Samson is on his way to his wedding, he finds that a swarm of bees have nested in the carcass of the lion. He eats the honey, and at the wedding celebration he offers a riddle to the 30 Philistine guests: “Out of the eater something to eat; out of the strong something sweet.” Samson said that if they could solve the riddle, he would provide thirty garments to the guests. Frustrated by their inability to solve the riddle, the guests persuade Samson’s bride to get the answer from Samson. Samson gives the answer to his bride on the 7th day and his bride gives the answer to his guests who say “What is sweeter than honey and what is stronger than a lion? To get the 30 garments that he had promised if the riddle was solved, Samson went to a nearby village and killed 30 Philistines whose garments he gives to the wedding guests. However, when he returns to the wedding, his bride has chosen one of the guests as her husband. The bride’s father offers Samson his younger daughter who weighs a ton but Samson rejects the offer, saying that she is not heavy enough. His original bride at 5 tons was just right for him. Instead, Samson catches 300 foxes and attaches torches to their tails. He lets them loose to burn the corn fields and vineyards of the Philistines.

Samson then falls in love with Delilah. He sees Delilah for the first time lifting 500 lbs. barbells at the gym, and it’s love at first sight. But the Philistines now hate Samson so 3,000 Philistines follow him to his cave where he kills a thousand of them with the jawbone of a donkey. The Philistines bribe Delilah with 1,000 pieces of silver to find out the secret of his strength. Samson teases Delilah by answering that if she tied him with fresh bowstrings, new ropes or if his locks are woven together, he would become weak. Delilah has her servant tie up Samson with fresh bowstrings while he sleeps, but when he wakes up he easily snaps the bowstrings.

The presumption of ‘undue influence’ in transactions between Association. He is a member of both the istration. He has extensive CPA experience Family law section and Immigration law prior to law practice. LAW OFFICES OF spouses during the marriage section of the Los Angeles County Bar KENNETH REYES, P.C. is located at 3699

California law on the nature of spouses’ rights Association. He is a graduate of South- Wilshire Blvd., Suite 700, Los Angeles, CA, and obligations with respect to management and BARRISTER'S western University Law School in Los 90010. Tel. (213) 388-1611 or e-mail kurcontrol of community property has evolved over Angeles and California State University, eyeslaw@gmail.com or visit our website at CORNER the last thirty years from less stringent “good faith” San Bernardino School of Business Admin- Kenreyeslaw.com. standards to heightened “confidential duty” and “fiduciary duty’ standards. Under current law, the duties owed between spouses in transactions between themselves are the same highest duties owed by parties to a fiduciary relationship. The heightened standard with regard to transactions between spouses is codified in Family Code Sec. 721(b). The section provides that “in transactions between themselves, a husband and wife are BY KENNETH REYES subject to the general rules governing fiduciary & DARRICK TAN relationships which control the actions of persons occupying confidential relations with each other. This confidential relationship imposes a duty of the highest good faith and fair dealing on each spouse, and neither shall take any unfair advantage of the other.” Incidental to this fiduciary relationship is a rebuttable presumption of undue influence when one spouse obtains an advantage over the other in a community property transaction – i.e. when one spouse improves his/her position, obtains a favorable opportunity, or otherwise gains, benefits or profits in a community property transaction to the exclusion of the other. Marriage of Haines (1995) 33 CA4th 277, 297, 39 CR2d 673, 686. This presumption arises in connection with any interspousal property transaction in which one spouse obtained an advantage over the other. It is important to note that the presumption arises even if the transaction at issue did not result from fraud, deceit or coercion. Marriage of Mathews (2005) 133 CA4th 624, 629-630, 35 CR3d 1, 4. The spouse favored by such a transaction has the burden of rebutting the presumption of undue influence. To rebut the presumption, he/she must show that the other spouse entered into the transaction freely and voluntarily, with full knowledge of all the facts, and with a complete understanding of its effect. Marriage of Delaney (2003) 111 CA4th 991, 996-997, 4 CR3d 378, 382. If the spouse who benefited from the transaction fails to demonstrate the foregoing, the transaction may be ignored. A classic example of this situation is when a husband executes a quitclaim deed in favor of his wife as her separate property. Generally that fully executed Quit Claim would have the effect of changing the character of the property from community to his wife’s separate property based on another presumption called “presumption of title” under evidence code section 662 and the under a the theory of “transmutation” pursuant to family code section 852., Evidence Code Section 662 presumption of title states that “the owner of the legal title to property is presumed to be the owner of the full beneficial title. This presumption may be rebutted only by clear and convincing proof. However, because of the presumption of u ndue influence under family code section 721(b), the wife has the burden to overcome the presumption in order to effect a change in the character of the property from community to separate. If the wife does not meet the burden, then the court can set aside the quit claim deed based on a presumption that such transfer was made with undue influence. Each spouse’s fiduciary obligations toward the other spouse under Family Code Sec. 721(b) continue after separation in anticipation of dissolution, nullity or legal separation until the date of distribution of the community asset or liability in question. Family Code Sec. 2102(a) and (b). Spousal Petition Accordingly, if you have made an interFiancé Visa spousal transaction benefiting your spouse during the marriage such as executing a Relative Petition quit claim and you are contemplating filing Green Card a divorce, it is advised that you consult with an experienced attorney to determine what U.S. Citizenship avenues of relief you may take to set aside Employer Petition the transaction.

MOTORING 2014 Honda Odyssey arrives at dealers July 2 Already the benchmark minivan, the 2014 Honda Odyssey offers best-in-class fuel efficiency and new innovative features like HondaVAC TORRANCE, Calif., June 25 – The 2014 Honda Odyssey minivan arrives at Honda dealerships nationwide on July 2, refreshed with a host of powertrain, styling, interior, feature and safety upgrades, all designed to meet the needs of today’s family. Key changes to the 2014 Odyssey minivan include the addition of a standard 6-speed automatic transmission on all trims resulting in class-leading fuel-economy ratings, enhanced safety equipment, cleaner front and rear exterior styling, plus revised instrumentation and electronic controls. For the first time all 2014 Odyssey models will include standard Bluetooth HandsFreeLink connectivity, a 4-way power passenger seat, Expanded View Driver’s Mirror, Pandora interface and an SMS text messaging function. New available features include the Honda exclusive LaneWatch™ blind spot display, Forward Collision Warning (FCW) and Lane Departure Warning (LDW). Additionally, Odyssey Touring Elite models will now come standard with the much-anticipated HondaVAC™, the world’s first in-vehicle vacuum cleaner, which allows customers the ability to quickly and easily clean-up dirt and debris from every corner of the minivan. The 2014 Honda Odyssey will have a starting MSRP1 of $28,825. This represents only a $150 increase in base price for a thoroughly revised Odyssey equipped with additional standard features for increased convenience. With the addition of a standard 6-speed automatic transmission paired to the 3.5-liter, 24-valve, SOHC, i-VTEC V-6 engine with Variable Cylinder Management (VCM), the Odyssey further solidifies its place as the fuel economy leader in the minivan segment with all 2014 models of-

fering EPA fuel economy ratings of 19/28 mpg1 city/ highway (model-year 2013 EPA ratings were 18/27 mpg on all models except Touring and Touring Elite). Further enhancing occupant safety, the 2014 Odyssey receives the next-generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure. The reinforced frontal structure improves frontal crash energy management through a wider range of offset and oblique collision modes. With the revised structure, the 2014 Odyssey is anticipated to earn the highest rating ofTOP SAFETY PICK+ from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), including a GOOD rating in the stringent new IIHS small overlap frontal collision test. The Odyssey is expected to be the first minivan to earn a TSP+ from IIHS. For 2014, the Odyssey continues with its successful model grade strategy: five different available trim levels include the well-equipped base LX model, EX, the leather-trimmed EX-L, the feature-packed Touring, and the line-topping Odyssey Touring Elite.

SHANGHAI, June 19, 2013 (AFP) – General Motors will invest $11 billion in China through 2016, executives said Wednesday, as the U.S. car giant broke ground on a plant to produce luxury Cadillacs for the world’s biggest auto market. The figure includes four new plants, including the $1.3 billion Cadillac factory in Shanghai, GM officials told a media briefing. “China is a critical market for General Motors today and General Motors tomorrow,” GM chairman and CEO Dan Akerson said. GM is already the largest foreign auto maker in China by sales, but it has lagged behind in the country’s luxury segment, in which German companies hold an estimated 80 percent share. GM sold a record 1.33 million vehicles in China for the first five months of this year, up 10.6 percent from the same period last year, according to the company. The Cadillac plant will have annual output capacity of 160,000 vehicles, with production to start in two years, GM officials said. “We’re going to bring our high-end, premium product here and we’re going to see how we run against the competitors from Europe and Japan,” Akerson said. GM has already announced plans to introduce one new Cadillac model a year in China through 2016 to boost annual sales of the brand from around 30,000 vehicles last year to 100,000 by 2015. The U.S. company hopes to capture 10 percent of China’s luxury car market by 2020, up from the current 2.5 percent, GM officials said Wednesday.

Meanwhile in Costa Mesa, the Hyundai Veloster took the top spot on the 10 Coolest New Cars Under $18,000 of 2013 list from Kelley Blue Book’s KBB.com. Editors of the trusted new- and used-car information resource applauded the three door coupe for its highly unique exterior design and stylish, tech-laden interior. “The driver’s side has one door and the other side has two, but unusual asymmetry isn’t the most outrageous aspect of Veloster’s design,” said Jack R. Nerad, executive editorial director and executive market analyst, Kelley Blue Book’s KBB.com. “Inside that unique outside is enough style and tech to earn the Veloster the top spot on this year’s list of 10 Coolest Cars Under $18,000.” Two criteria – fun-to-drive and fun-to-own – are used by KBB.com editors to determine each vehicle’s “cool factor.” Each vehicle on the list is available for purchase at $18,000 or less, using Kelley Blue Book’s exclusive

(Relaxnews) – A Passat TDI has set a new fuel economy benchmark of 77.99mpg (3 liters per 100km) in a journey around the US. The 8122-mile (13,000 km) journey, which took in all 48 of America’s mainland states and was completed in 17 days, not only beats the existing record for a dieselpowered vehicle (average fuel economy 67.9mpg) but also the existing hybrid vehicle record of 64.6mpg. In all, drivers Wayne Gerdes and Bob Winger used a total of just 104.94 gallons (397.2 liters) of fuel to complete the trip and only made minor adjustments to what is otherwise a stock car. The biggest change was a special set of Continental PureContact low rolling-resistance tires that improve fuel efficiency. Gerdes, founder of cleanmpg.com, is one of the world’s leading ‘hypermilers’ – people who are devoted to pushing cars to the limits in terms of fuel savings over ever longer distances and in developing new driving techniques to further this cause. Gerdes has set over 100 fuel efficiency world records including the existing record for driving around all 48 lower U.S. states in a hybrid vehicle. “We felt we had a good chance of beating the existing record with the Passat TDI,” Gerdes said, “but to smash it by averaging 77.99 mpg is really impressive and a testament to the potential of Volkswagen’s TDI Clean Diesel vehicles. Obviously, we employ some specialized techniques to achieve such figures, but there’s no reason why owners of TDI vehicles shouldn’t be able to achieve great mileage with a few simple pointers.”

The unexpected: Toyota reveals the stunning next-generation Corolla Sedan

From left Jojo Santillana, Nile Villanueva, Victor Malaiba, Sherwin Cacdac and Romeo Morales of Miller Anaheim of Toyota.

TORRANCE, Calif. (June 6, 2013) – The all-new 2014 Corolla will include dramatically amplified elements of style, design, quality and craftsmanship, while building upon the stellar Corolla reputation for reliability, efficiency and function, making Toyota’s newest compact the most surprising and capable Corolla yet. Corolla for the World: 47 years, 154 Countries, Built in 16 Locations, Immeasurable Impact With nearly 40 million units sold, the Toyota Corolla is the best-selling car nameplate on the planet, and this year marks its 47th year on the market. Since the Corolla first appeared in Japan in 1966, it has played a major role in the motorization of Japan, and its global popularity has had a significant impact on transportation throughout the rest of the world. The global scope of Corolla now finds it manufactured in 16 locations and sold in 154 countries. The Toyota Corolla’s appeal as a global car is rooted in a product philosophy set forth by Tatsuo Hasegawa, the first Corolla’s chief engineer, who sought “to develop a car that brings happiness and well-being to people around the world.” The all-new Corolla makes an immediate visual impact with a more expressive, chiseled exterior design that elaborates on the “Iconic Dynamism” theme first seen on the Corolla Furia Concept that debuted at the North American International Auto Show. Elevated Interior Experience With a Greater Sense of Craftsmanship in its Design The new Corolla’s interior continues the “Iconic Dynamism” theme to create a stylish, highly functional, and in-

viting interior space with a greater sense of craftsmanship in its design, use of materials, and attention to detail. A horizontally oriented dash structure helps enhance the interior’s sense of spaciousness while providing a more wide-open, intuitively functional space for interface with vehicle controls. The interior offers a premium aesthetic with its use of piano-black gloss trim highlighted by metallic ornamentation and trim that conveys an upscale yet sportier image. Depending on interior color theme, blue, black or amber pinstriped accents are used in conjunction with the dash and door panel ornamentation to enhance the premium appeal of the interior. Ornamental stitching along the leading edge of the dash pad adds a sense of craftsmanship to the interior’s upscale nature. An available decorative boot with ornamental stitching surrounding the shift lever adds a sporty, premium look. Drivetrain and Aerodynamics Maximize Efficiency The Corolla has always prioritized delivering outstanding fuel economy and the new 2014 model maintains that focus. The new Corolla LE Eco model targets an estimated EPA highway fuel economy rating of over 40 mpg. The Corolla LE Eco is a new grade that enhances the fuel economy with the help of aerodynamic underbody covers, color-keyed rear spoiler, a more efficient 1.8-liter engine with Valvematic technology, low rolling resistance tires on 15-inch wheels or available 16-inch aerodynamic alloy wheels, and an efficient CVT. The 2014 Corolla offers two efficient 1.8-liter, allaluminum four-cylinder engines. The base 1.8-liter unit

with VVT-i is available on the L, LE, and S grades and is rated at 132 horsepower. The Corolla’s new LE Eco trim level is equipped with a 1.8-liter engine with Valvematic , a valve train technology which appears for the first time in North America with Corolla. Valvematic offers a broader range of continuously variable valve timing (lift and phasing) to provide optimal intake valve (not on exhaust side) operation relative to engine demands. The 2014 Corolla will elevate the consumer’s experience for the world’s most popular sedan with modern, expressive styling, a more premium interior experience, improved fuel economy and performance, and a strong menu of available features. Vehicle pricing, final grade content, and option packages will be made available closer to launch timing. From Camry to Sienna, to the flagship Avalon to the gas-saving Prius Hybrid and to the ever dependable Corolla, the workhorse RAV4 and everything in between, the Miller Toyota of Anaheim lot takes the customer to a new pleasant carbuying experience not available anywhere. It is no wonder Miller Toyota of Anaheim has been named as one of the most productive Toyota car dealerships in Southern California. And maybe, just maybe, our kababayans have to do something about it. Besides, Toyota won’t be the number 1 car brand for Filipinos if that didn’t matter. The Filipino Fleet, a dynamic segment in its sales department, is composed of three professional and dependable kababayans, add a different level of confidence on the part of Fil-Am carbuyers. Guided by their no-gimmick-just greatdeal mantra, “Dahil kababayan, maayos at malinaw ang usapan,” the Filipino Fleet are a delight to deal with. They are courteous, knowledgeable, and helpful. Miller Toyota of Anaheim is located right in Anaheim at 1331 North Euclid St. just off Riverside Freeway convenient to the I-5. Getting there is easy from the I-5 Freeway. Call toll free at 1-800-920-7614 for more information and to inquire from any of our kababayans Jojo Santillana, Sherwin Cacdac, Romeo Morales, Victor Malaiba and Nile Villanueva.

Mayweather, Alvarez begin hype for showdown WASHINGTON, June 25, 2013 (AFP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Undefeated fighters Floyd Mayweather and Saul â&#x20AC;&#x153;Caneloâ&#x20AC;? Alvarez, set for a September 14 showdown at Las Vegas, are hyping the world title bout with a tour that launched in New York and Washington. Mexicoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Alvarez, whose nickname is spanish for â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cinnamonâ&#x20AC;?, will defend his World Boxing Council and World Boxing Association super welterweight titles against Mayweather in a pay-per-view show on Mexican Independence Day weekend. Mayweather, 44-0 with 26 knockouts, has relied upon Mexican fight fans, many cheering for his rivals, to help make him the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s highest-paid athlete, with Sports Illustrated estimating he will make $90 million this year. Mayweather, who was jailed last June on domestic violence charges, will make the bout the second in a six-fight deal with telecaster Showtime that could bring him record profits by the conclusion of the deal. Alvarez, 42-0 with one drawn and 30 knockouts, suffered the only blemish on his record in 2006 with a draw in his fifth professional bout and hopes to end Mayweatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s magical run. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In boxing everybody has their time and this is my time,â&#x20AC;? Alvarez said. Everybody knows that Floyd is the best without question, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s my time. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to win. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m younger and bigger, which are very important keys. Floyd is a very intelligent fighter, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to have the right game plan. This is my biggest fight but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve visualized it and prepared my mind for it for a while.â&#x20AC;? Alvarez turns 23 next month while Mayweather, 36, fought his first pro fight when the Mexican was only six years old. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It has truly been an amazing ride,â&#x20AC;? Mayweather said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m blessed to be in the sport of boxing and be at the top for 17 years. I just want to give the fans a hell of a fight. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Canelo is a young strong champion. He has obviously done something right to be at this level. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a guy that I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t overlook. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to go out there and fight the best fight.â&#x20AC;? Mayweather also warned that Alvarez has not faced anyone as hard to stop.
