  • Sent To: Fr. Jessie Somosierra, hi.. how's it going? So, i guess it's time for me to start using this account. I can hold back no longer! I wandered into your page and well, I liked what I saw.. :pSo, my name is Hayley. I think you and I should probably be friends, cause you seem pretty nice, and maybe even cute! (it's so hard to tell in this digital world :)anyway, i'd go on and on, but I'd like to get a response from you.. You should check out my other "space" on this other site, I'm usually on over there: - internet address deleted -(my username is {username deleted}). Then maybe we could chat sometime! you know what they say.. appearance captures the eyes, but personality catches the heart.. to you soon, Hayley

I received this message in my yahoo 360. Yahoo 360 is a blog hosted by yahoo. Upon receiving this I remember the news on Hongkong's crackdown on spammers.
  • Hong Kong spammers will face big fines and a long jail terms under a new law to control unsolicited advertising. New legislation in the southern Chinese city will regulate all messages sent by electronic means that advertise or promote goods or services, including faxes, emails, SMS text and pre-recorded voice messages. Violators could be fined up to

    $A156,190 and face up to five years' jail. Deputy Secretary for Commerce, Industry and Technology Marion Lai says the ordinance will be implemented in two phases, with the first phase coming into effect on Friday.The measure bans messages to addresses obtained through a "dictionary" or "brute force" attacks, which automatically generate possible recipients, or through software that searches the Internet for addresses.Ms Lai says those who hack into computers to send commercial messages will face up to 10 years' jail. She says the ban includes pre-recorded voice messages to telephones with

    calling-line identification withheld.ABC

A law was been passed there to curb spam. And a corresponding fine will be extracted for those who are guilty. Well, we don't have it here. The government agencies law enforcers have difficulties in fighting crimes and violators of any kind here, I think they will never have a manpower to execute it here if there is any law concerning this matter. Unlike in the Unites States of America who are advance on persecuting the culprit. Just as the recent news has:
  • US Internet 'Spam King' arrested
    SAN FRANCISCO -- US prosecutors said they captured on Wednesday a nefarious Internet marketer responsible so much junk e-mail they called him "Spam King."Robert Soloway, 27, was arrested in Seattle, Washington, a week after being indicted by a federal grand jury on charges of identity theft, money laundering, and mail, wire, and e-mail fraud."Spam is a scourge of the Internet, and Robert Soloway is one of its most prolific practitioners," said US Attorney for the Western District of Washington Jeffrey Sullivan."Our investigators dubbed him the 'Spam King' because he is responsible for millions of spam emails."Between November of 2003 and May of 2007 Soloway "spammed" tens of millions of e-mail messages to promote websites at which his company, Newport Internet Marketing, sold products and services, according to p rosecutors.Soloway routinely moved his website to different Internet addresses to dodge detection and began registering them through Chinese Internet service providers in 2006 in an apparent ploy to mask his involvement.Spam messages sent by Soloway used misleading "header" information to dupe people into opening them, according to Sullivan.Soloway is accused of using "botnets," networks of computers, to disguise where e-mail originated and of forging return addresses of real people or businesses that wound up blamed for unwanted mailings.If convicted as charged, Soloway will face a maximum sentence of more than 65 years in prison and a fine of 250,000 dollars.Prosecutors want to seize approximately 773,000 dollars they say Soloway made from his spamming-related activities.
It is one of the hazards to anyone who uses the internet. One should know how to deal with spammers. some sites have better off than others in handling with spam. Some web mail have even identified authentic email as spam because of the filters they are using is also used by other authentic senders. Sometimes, I check my spam folders for such things. This is specially true for verification letters. So far my blog in wordpress does not encounter such because they have installed askimet and I did not encountered anything here in blogspot, so far.

Everyday there is a new discovery. looking for some program in putting my slides aside from what I already know. I find this splashcast. Uploading photos here requires a lot of time than using filmloop. However, I encountered problem with filmloop when I reformat my computer when it bog down last week. I could no longer acces my filmloop slides besides by having it linked to my sites. Present links will not be affected but, it will no longer serviceable to future usages beyond a linked slideshow. lookin to find out if I could still use the old slides, this is what I found mixercast. I will speak abot it later on.
Ooooooops..... there are some glitches on this slide. I will post it later.

After the Mass, I was invited for breakfast by one of my parishioners in Sto. Domiggo, Bay, Laguna. I obliged and I found out this beautiful haven. If there is nothng to do, I would like to stay for further reflection. It seems that here time doesn't passes by. Remebering the transfiguration of Christ wherein St. Peter commented to build three huts rather than going down to Jerusalem. But like Christ, we have to come down to our own Jerusalems.

Too much gadgets and graphics make this site slower especially for the dial-up readers. most of the Filipino people except for those who are always in internet cafe or shops and the financially abled could hardly use broadband and high speed connection. I am staring to limit my post and the graphics. So I make another site for the activities of the parish. Mainly for the activities of the parish. It is also my activity as the parish priest but I could make a link here directing to the site and vice versa.
Seeing other bloggers who are rich not only in content but also in form have somewhat make me jealous. Only if I have a lot of time to develop everything for a short period of time. It reminds me that I am human bounded by the rules of this world.
I remember one of my friend a priest within the vicariate commented "Can yu still find time spending in the front of the computer?" Well, I have answered that we spent our free time on different interest. it is here I spent my free time. I am also reminding myself that this is just a part of my daily activities of which should not hinder my ministry rather enriched it, and may help it to reach fulfillment.
I am thankful that this technoly have becoming cheaper that ever, though it is still beyond the reach of the common people. But today's generation have find time to make this thing available to its lowest price. I still hope that businesses which focus on the internet connection will find means to lower it cost. Much have already been done by some sectors. Just as this blogging becoming a fad because it is free except the connection and the time.
Going back to the site of the parish activities. It is hosted in wordpress. I like to host it here is blogspot but there is a limit on the graphics you could put in the weblogs. The alloted free filesize is only 1000 mb only and I have used a considerable percent already. It is not accumulative on the number of your blog of which the wordpress offers 50 mb every blog you created and offers an easy installation if you host it with other sites. It will not be a proble here in blogspot if I know to use it in html. May be I will try to study and learn it. I an not also ertain if the alloted 1000 mb applies not only to graphics butto all extensions. Anyway for the moment, let us try another services. The name of the blog is activities,

During our vicarial meeting last wednesday, Father noel Conopio, the Apostolic Vicar of the second district have brought out the issue and problem of the resettlement in his area. Calauan was been a place for resettlement for about 250 families from different parts of Metro Manila and neighboring provinces and towns.Now, Malacanang is bringging another 36 families with an assurance of several batches that will be coming from the places affected by the operation of the Metro Manila Development Authority.
We all agree that this is the work of the National and Local Government but people are coming up asking for help. And the Church is encountering problems concerning these matter withstanding that almost thousand families were relocated in Cabuyao, Laguna recently.
Fr. Noel speaks about the present situation and the immediate need of the said resettled families. The basic needs of food, shelter and jobs are primary and immediate need of which the faithful is encouraging to help out our brothers and sisters from the urban poor of which we now to be considered as our neighbors. It is sometimes sad to hear some parishioners that helping these people, we are tolerating the public officials of not doing their job. Those corrupt public officials will face the wrath of God. But as Christians, it is our duty to help our these people of whic it is not our deision to be a part of our problem. But since the problem is already in our midst, we have to act, now. Pleace listen to Fr. Noel on his message as the parish priest of San Isidro, Labrador, Calauan, Laguna of which these people were resettled.

Eve of World Communication Day

On the eve of the feast of ascension, i have made a realization that there are things that the faith has to be proclaimed as the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ have clearly stated that it must be proclaim in all Nations. It is also in cognizance with the celebration of the Catholic Church celebration of the 40th WORLD Communication Day.
For the advance of years, communication technology have also been modernized to a considerable extent of which a lot of people now have taken for granted. I remember fifteen years ago that the common form of communication is through the use of snail mail. Before, it was called air mail. Due to the advent of powerful communication tools, it has become the snail one.
The advent of new communication tools has reached us before but its affordability today have greatly affected us, it has been the tool for the majority not only for the elite.
Before a cellphone that looks like a "refrigerator" costs more than 20 thousand pesos. Now, a cellphone with that kind of amount has all the feature that you could imagine.
Considering these events and wonders of the present time, I have decided to make another blog for the Filipino Bible. Since I cannot find an Catholic online Bible on the internet written in local language, I will try to transcibe it to the blogs. I will use one of the common version used by Catholics. To avoid infringement of copyright license, I will post it section by section with the proper annotation. Sometime, I called the Philippine BIble Society concerning this matter. They told me that they are preparing an online Tagalog Bible. That was four years ago. Until now, I do not know if there is any Filipino Bible online. I have seen in one of the website but did not care to look further of a certain version dated 1904. I did not pursue to it further because it is a protestant version and much have been changed for a hundred years. You could see the new site on

Election Aftermath

Several days after the philippine midterm election several people from one of the Philippine political parties contacted me through Fr. Ted Real concerning the outcome of the election in this municipality, Bay, laguna. First thing that comes to my mind is why contact me after several days of the election. We are batlling against all odds then to ensure that the provisition of the rule and code of election process is put on its proper place. We are doing our job at to the extent that we are more aware and following the rules and conduct of election process than the comelec chairman of this municipality. Three days prior to the election, the comelec cha was replaced by the national. The political group are asking for confirmation of the alleged irregularities in the conduct of election. Yes, there are irrigularities,(Hello! Where did you came from?) but to pinpoint who are the group behind the irrigularities is another matter. There are iirigularities but it does not presupposed that there is any intention to cheat. There are no actual findings of the question of cheating, so far there are no factual proof. What we have are irrigularities in the filling of the ERs which leave some forms blanks. Some ER have no entry on the number of the registered voters and numbers of people who actually voted. Some are filled only in the senatorial level but not on the local level.Well, such kind of irrigularites is a suspect. But it does not hold matter as is. There should be an amful reason to consider. Such as Why there is no report from the pollwatchers assigned to the said precint? One of our limitation is the lack of personnel. There are precints handled by few volunteers.
My point is, you cannot simply make this as a proof for a case. Or else you will be labelled simply as ignorants of the law.
According to my sources, these people are local leaders of a candidate who would like to make an impression that they have loss because they are cheated not because they have been negligent on their duties to deliver enough votes for the said candidate. They have loss alot of votes here.

To say that irrigularities existed is easy to file a complain is entirely a different matter. We all want to clean up this country of any immoral acts on election day. However, we have to do our job effeciently also or else we are just simply barking the wrong tree.

Feed Aggregator

Playing around with one of the features of blog - aggregator, it has made me to redesign the webpage by creating a page dedicated for news, Philippine news. Though, everyday, I am subscribe to one of the daily Philippine news broadsheets and reading it every morning, I also read other news on the internet. Not all newspaper contains the same news although there are similarities among them. Sometimes, different news agencies deliver the news differently. Part of human element. I have made a page primarily for Philippine news, since I ussually read the news on the internet as part of the feature I put in one of my sites which deals on the Philippine Election 2007.

Not all Philippine news company are offering feeds. It is to be noted that the big news provider, Inquirer and ABS-CBN are offering it. There are also regional news agencies who are using the blog systems in their web pages. It is also a tools for others who are surfing this blog to access the news in the Philippine setting. Interconnectivity is the rule of the game. I am practically trying to connect everything on this site for the easy access for me, principally, as well as for others.

I have also deleted the links on the front page for this reason to avoid duplicity. I have to clean up the surface. Or it might confuse more the readers.

Bloggers Code of Ethics

Here is the Bloggers' Code of Ethics I have found in Though most of us are aware of the rules and conduct since we have studied and most of us are Christians, it is helpful also to be reminded by the rules and conduct of this world wide web specifically on blogging. These are highly worded statements which should be the guide of all bloggers. Hoping that I will be reminded constantly on this matter I am reposting the said code of ethics.

Posted by: Alecks P. Pabico on 2 April 2005 at 7:43 am has created a model Bloggers’ Code of Ethics, by modifying the Society of Professional Journalists Code of Ethics for the Weblog world. These are just guidelines — in the end it is up to individual bloggers to choose their own best practices. follows this code and urges other Weblogs to adopt this one or similar practices:

Be Honest and Fair
Bloggers should be honest and fair in gathering, reporting and interpreting information.
Bloggers should:
• Never plagiarize.
• Identify and link to sources whenever feasible. The public is entitled to as much information as possible on sources’ reliability.
• Make certain that Weblog entries, quotations, headlines, photos and all other content do not misrepresent. They should not oversimplify or highlight incidents out of context.
• Never distort the content of photos without disclosing what has been changed. Image enhancement is only acceptable for for technical clarity. Label montages and photo illustrations.
• Never publish information they know is inaccurate — and if publishing questionable information, make it clear it’s in doubt.
• Distinguish between advocacy, commentary and factual information. Even advocacy writing and commentary should not misrepresent fact or context.
• Distinguish factual information and commentary from advertising and shun hybrids that blur the lines between the two.

Minimize Harm

Ethical bloggers treat sources and subjects as human beings deserving of respect.
Bloggers should:
• Show compassion for those who may be affected adversely by Weblog content. Use special sensitivity when dealing with children and inexperienced sources or subjects.
• Be sensitive when seeking or using interviews or photographs of those affected by tragedy or grief.
• Recognize that gathering and reporting information may cause harm or discomfort. Pursuit of information is not a license for arrogance.
• Recognize that private people have a greater right to control information about themselves than do public officials and others who seek power, influence or attention. Only an overriding public need can justify intrusion into anyone’s privacy.
• Show good taste. Avoid pandering to lurid curiosity.
Be cautious about identifying juvenile suspects, victims of sex crimes and criminal suspects before the formal filing of charges.

Be Accountable
Bloggers should:
• Admit mistakes and correct them promptly.
• Explain each Weblog’s mission and invite dialogue with the public over its content and the bloggers’ conduct.
• Disclose conflicts of interest, affiliations, activities and personal agendas.
• Deny favored treatment to advertisers and special interests and resist their pressure to influence content. When exceptions are made, disclose them fully to readers.
• Be wary of sources offering information for favors. When accepting such information, disclose the favors.
• Expose unethical practices of other bloggers.
• Abide by the same high standards to which they hold others.

Mass Media

As this blog grows, it is important to acknowledge that as I search and use the Internet there is avast knowledge that can be attain and much resources to be used. However too loose. To much independent and has lost the significance of the interconnection. It is still up to the individual to connect all the loose end.I am trying now to connect some. Well, this is quite tedious but I could not simply rely on the automation of which it is built. Understandably that search engines have use the idea of volunteerism on such a way to built an array of communication. However, there are some dangers of watering down the quality of work. Unless they are hired.

I am starting to interconnect, aside from my other works on the level of religious sites all the Media resources that can be found in the Internet on the local level i., Philippine Settings. Sometimes we are drown by big companies that has been the land mark of the society but let us not forget that there are other contributors on the sideline which in some how or another would like to be heard and I believe they have something worthwhile to contribute. Maybe not as big as the others but still a part of the whole picture.

Practically, as we reflect on life, this is something that we should not forget. There are others not monumental as it may be too the naked eye but has been anonymous and have not been recognized but they have been an important part in our lives.

I am adding a group of links for all the media resources according to their main line of exposure. Practically it can be categorized into three a. Internet b. Print c. TV

Jesus' Last Will

Jesus Last will
Love one another as I have loved you

Priests running for government offices is not a part of our culture as Filipinos. However, the emerging personality of Fr. Ed Panlilio is sending us some message, He is not the first priest who make this kind of decision as history have proven in the Filipino people. It is to be noted that he is the first one who will run to the highest position i.e., governorship.

Here is the collection of Videos posted in the internet by the citizenry, most likely looking for him to make a difference in society.

1: Acts 14:21-27
R: Ps 145:8-13
2: Rev 21:1-5
G: Jn 13:31-33,34-35

Posting these video this Sunday is a part of my reflection on todays' Gospel. Jesus is leaving his last will and testament to his disciples. And this is the new commandment. The commandment of loving one another as Jesus have loved us.

Why is it a new commandment? It is a new commandment not because love was not something been held in the Old Testament as the way Jews should treat one another. Surely, loving one another is one of the traits a good Jew should have. There is no question about it.

It is new because the manner should be handled. It is the way Jesus has presented us. The reference point is Jesus. What is it that is new which is also the manner that we have to follow so that we could imitate so that we could fulfill His last will. So that we could be trully become His disciples.

First, A love that bears fruit in action. True love pushes us to do something to make that act realized. It has a potent force that drives people to make a vision a reality. Sometimes, I observe some couples come to the parish office wishes to be married though the husband-to-be has no work. But if it is true Love, after the ceremony the husband really landed in a job that will support his wife and future family.

Second, A love that nothing in return, a selfless love.Today, in all the masses I celebrated, I asked the parishioners "Is it an obligation of a son or daughter to support his/her parents. Yes, it is clear that it is the obligation of the parents to support their children from their basic need until they reach an age that they themselves could live in their own. But, it is not the obligation of the children to support their parents. No children could even repay their parents for the care they receive from them. As well as, parent's love to their children is not "refundable", it is priceless and not for sale, it is selfless and unconditional. It is for the children's love to support their children and could not be obligated by someone else.

On the same way, I would like to commend all the PPCRV volunters for voluntering for this coming May 14 election. Surely, they are the model of which our present situation needs though the situation is violatile. They volunteers because they love their country and their countrymen. They will watch the electoral exercise and guard the ballot because it is the fruit that stems from their love to the country. And they are on this exercise without asking for any returns.

Now going back to Fr. Panlilio. Iam not campaigning for him. However, it is from my deep reflection that sprout that whatever might be his intentions of which I have no way of knowing, it is clear to me that he was been driven to this situation out of his love for his country and fellow men. He believes that he could do something and he is doing it right now even if a great sacrifice is to made without asking for a return.

Leaving priesthood, though not definitive, needs a lot of courage for something that is beyond one's interest. It is deep. Though some of my brother priests might not in concurrence on my opinion but listening to the videos prove otherwise.

Isang Tanong/One question

I missed the "isang tanong" from the Gma News Tv. Its is a candidates's forum for those who are running for senatorial seats in the Philippine senate. It has garnered more viewers than a beauty tilt aired at the same time in different channel. This is the first part of all the candidates, the next batch will be aired live on Sunday night. So, I am reposting here the video made by someone who cares for Filipino people. These are not necessarily in chronological order.

Pangmasang Pagamutan ng Laguna

I was been infuriated early this morning when I received the water bill, The bill states an amount beyond my capacity and understanding. I immediately asked my companions to check all the valves and faucets.

Since I have arrived here, I have been trying hard to be frugal in the use of electricity and water to conserve enough for some repairs. And after being careful on using unnecessary energy consuming gadgets like aircon, I was devastated with this news. It has weakened my spirit. I just asked the Lord for more patience. Some of my boys here are not not taking care of water faucet properly. Even if they are not the one who caused it because some parishioners do not know how to close what they have opened. I instructed them to check all valves every day and night.

The Pangmasang Pagamutan ng Laguna situated in Maitim, Bay, Laguna invited me to celebrate Mass today on the occasion of their eighteen (18) years of existence.

The hospital is the fourth largest of the eight hospital in Laguna. It has not much to offer in compare with the private run hospitals in the are but it has helped a lot of poor people who could not afford the high rate of hospitalization. The hospital has no surgery department but it has first aid section and it is effectively been in service of the other needs. This year, one of its wings is scheduled for renovation.

After the celebration of the Holy Eucharist in the hospital, I decide to passed by at South Supermarket, it is just few hundred metersaway from the hospital to buy some stuff for breakfast. Fr. Thor Villacarlos was alo there buying some food for his visitors who will be coming today.

Our discussion centered on the new diocesan set-up of the presbyteral council. The practice before is that the vicar foranes are part of the conclave. Now, it was directed to the another department under pastoral. Well, we know that their is an amful and reasonable reason to do so, however the concern here is not simply the chage of the organization set-up but by properly informing the presbyterate before the changes take effects to avoid miscommunications and misunderstanding.

Personally, I do not attend the monthly assembly for some time for reasons that I might right here for another occasion. I was notified that the general assembly was not meeting for two months since the last assembly. The matter being discussed was not even brought even then.
