pacquiao vs marquez Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao is the New WBC Super Featherweight Champ

After the long awaited rematch, Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao successfully snatched the World Boxing Council (WBC) Supper Featherweight Champion belt from Juan Manuel Marquez of Mexico today.

The fight which lasted 12 rounds, finished the “unfinished business between the two fighters which last saw fighting for the same belt 2 years ago. Here’s a cut of the article I read from GMANews.TV:

Going the whole 12 rounds, Manny Pacquiao wrested the World Boxing Council super featherweight title from Juan Manuel Marquez in a thrilling rematch in fully-packed Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Pacquiao dominated the 10th round, managing to sneak in punches to the head of his already bleeding opponent, who had a cut over the right eye.

The last few seconds of ninth round saw both fighters getting really aggressive and trading punches in the face.

In the seventh round, both fighters inflicted punches that resulted in cuts under their eyes and entered the eighth round more aggressively trying to lunge at each other.

In the eighth round, Marquez landed two punches in Pacquiao’s face that clearly stunned the Filipino challenger.

Both fighters coasted through the fourth and fifth rounds of their 12-round rematch after thrilling their fans with an aggressive first three rounds at the Mandalay Bay Casino and Resort in Las Vegas on Saturday (Sunday in the Philippines).

In the third round, Pacquiao sent Marquez down on the canvas with a left cross to the jaw with just 19 seconds left.

Pacquiao entered the second round clearly the more aggressive fighter, but Marquez ended the round clearly in his favor, landing two punches in the face of Pacquiao just seconds before the bell sounded.

The rematch started off with the two fighters warily sizing up each other as expected, but the already very excited crowd got roused up when Marquez connected with a jab to the face of Pacquiao, who is out to wrest the World Boxing Council super featherweight from him.

The 29-year-old Pacquiao, in white trunks, weighed in at 129 lbs, while the 34-year-old Marquez, in black trunks, is at 130.

Pacquiao and Marquez entered the arena with an eager full-house audience composed mostly of Filipinos and Mexicans waving their respective national colors.

Ciara Sotto sang the Philippine national anthem Lupang Hinirang followed by Teo Gonzales who sang Mexico’s El Himno Nacional. Filipino American Jasmine Villegas sang the Star Spangled Banner.

The fight has been tagged Unfinished Business as it is widely seen as a continuation of the last bout of the two fighters in 2004, in controversial drawn bout, in which Pacquiao managed to knock down Marquez three times in the first round alone.

Marquez is not the favorite as far as betting odds are concerned. – GMANews.TV

Creating Entrepreneurs From Ordinary People


Globalpinoy Chamber of Small and Medium Enterprises believes that a principal reason why the Philippines continues to lag behind its Asian neighbors in economic development is because of the lamentable absence of a wide-spread entrepreneurial orientation and a woeful lack of entrepreneurial skills among Filipinos. Even today, our youth are still brought up on the principle that the key to success is to get a good education preferably with impressive grades to be able to find good employment in big multinational companies. One look at our more successful Asian brothers will easily reveal that their economies were founded on local entrepreneurships, not employment.

There is therefore an urgent need to correct this anomaly that has left our country behind in economic development. This is most crucial as the whole world economy now faces the onslaught of globalization, a trend which cannot be stopped and will not be stopped.

Our country drastically requires the development of a mass-based entrepreneurial class if we are to survive globalization. A country of employees such as ours will always have a government that is beholden to multinational companies. On the other hand, a Philippines with a wide-based entrepreneurial class can exist on its own and could even wield companies hostage in this country.

The Philippine economy must be controlled by Filipinos. “Para umunlad ang ating bayan, kailangan umunlad ang negosyanteng pinoy.” This is the battlecry of the Globalpinoy Chamber of Small and Medium Enterprises. With every activity of Globalpinoys, we hope to spread the seeds of Filipino entrepreneurship to the four corners of the archipelago or wherever the Filipinos maybe.

But for the entrepreneurial class to flourish and succeed, we critically also need the cooperation and support of the government. Globalpinoy Chamber of Small and Medium Enterprises likewise commits itself to attempt to persuade government to implement laws and incentives conducive to the development and success of home-grown entrepreneurs.

With you, the local entrepreneurs, behind us, we will succeed finally in creating a powerful entrepreneurial class. YOU the local entrepreneurs of this country will be the next heroes of the Philippines!

Bakit kailangan mong mag-negosyo?

Magagamit mo ang iyong kinikita sa kapaki-pakinabang na paraan.

Hindi mo na kailangang magsilbi sa iba, sa negosyo mo, ikaw ang ‘amo’
Magkakaroon ka ng oras para sa iyong pamilya.

Di mo na kailangang mawalay sa iyong mga mahal sa buhay upang kumita ng
pera sa malayong bansa. Di na kailangan ang mawalay sa iyong mga mahal sa buhay. Magiging buo ang iyong pamilya at mabibigyan mo ng maayos na patnubay ang iyong mga anak dahil kapiling mo sila.

Makakatulong ka sa bayan sa pamamagitan ng pagbibigay ng trabaho at serbisyo sa mga taong nangangailangan.

Where are the Filipino Youth?

The past weeks we have witnessed yet another political scandal that has rocked our country, the ZTE Broadband Scam wherein former COMELEC chairman Benjamin Abalos with the apparent blessings of the First Gentleman, Mike Arroyo was said to have asked for a commission of US$ 130 Million or a whopping 6 Billion Pesos in exhange for his influencing our government’s decision to award the broadband deal to ZTE, a Chinese Telecommunications Company. To make this happen, the ZTE Broadband Contract was greatly overpriced at US$ 329 Million and worse, the government to be able to make this deal push through would have to loan this amount from the Chinese government. In short, the US$ 130 Million kickback of Abalos and his cohorts will have to be paid for by our tax money.

To make things even worse, the govenrment tried its darn best to cover this deal by pressuring Joey De Venecia, the first star witness to stop talking abouit this in the Senate and in public, Joey didn’t want to cover up the truth thus, Malaca
