Power Barges

 

The people who advised that Mindanao be supplied with electricity coming from power barges are comedians.

And if they are not bald, they are those comedians who bring out the less laughs.

Diesel generators may be installed aboard barges, alright, but the problems involved are tremendous, and which would require huge capital outlays

That would nullify the projected results to supply power to Mindanao.

First of all, transmission and transformer stations have to be erected, and this would take time.

More so if these would be connected to power grids.

 The cables to carry electricity from the barges to this station would be a hazard to the population  and may also break when buffeted by the waves.

 The barges carrying the diesel generators may  have to be beached for stability.

And thereafter, a steady stream of transport ships carrying diesel fuel would be scheduled.

But the more significant problem would be : the smaller capacity of the diesel generator on board the barges.

 Consequently only a small area could be serviced.

If these power barges will service only barangay-sized areas it would be best to forget the whole idea.

Therefore, while power barges for Mindanao may be feasible, it would be terribly expensive and may deserve only a laugh.

 

(ever consider huge helicopters airlifting huge diesel generators to be laid on concrete pads?)

Eulalio Diaz

 

The man who padded the assets of the Chief justice from 5 properties to 45 properties.

 

Being an appointee of  Noynoy to the Land Registration Administration, and having been close to Noynoy before, a connivance between Eulalio and the prosecution panel  is suspected. He first denied his close ties with the President, and the afterwards made conflicting statements when questioned by the Senator-Judges.

He appears to be unperturbed by the lambasting given to him by the Senator-Judges, as if the more chewing out he gets, the more pogi-points he would deserve from Malacanang.

Tsismosang blogger

 

Blogger Raissa Robles claims she collects information from the crowd and posts these.

Usisera na Tsismosa pa!

This is what we get from people who have lost it and tries again in another way.

She should have realized that crowd-sourcing is not evidence-gathering. It is plain and simple gossip.

She also claims that she is not the “small lady” with that notoriety.

I agree with her in this. She is not a small lady. She’s smaller. :lol:

Private Prosecutors Big Paycheck?

 

The Impeachment Court is in for a very long vacation.

Are the private Prosecutors being paid or are they pro bonot! :lol:

If they are under a payroll, their paychecks would be that big, eh?

HOOOO-boy….!addition to the budget deficit.

The Price of Gas

 

There were suggestions to reduce the economic effects of the rising price of gas.

One was a government subsidy to effect a change to natural gas as fuel.

The other suggestion is a subsidized conversion to eelectric vehicles.

If most of the vehicles are converted to natural gas fuel, or even propane, there will be a bug demand on this fuel. As a result, natural gas prices will soar, and there again looms the high fuel prices.

If public utility vehicles are converted to electric, the lithium batteries would be that expensive, and the vehicles would obviously be useless when the flood waters come.

What should probably be known is that the public utility vehicles being used now have frames and bodies which are extremely heavy. This excessive weight make them gas-guzzlers.

It would be best to change the type of vehicles for transport.
