Mga war tunnel ng Hapones sa Sorsogon

Noong 15 Hunyo 2019, dinala kami ni Prop. Van Ybiernas ng Tagapangulo ng National Historical Commission of the Philippines Dr. Rene Escalante na tubong Sorsogon, at ng kanyang kapatid (at kahawig) na si Ronnel sa isa sa mga bayan ng kanilang lalawigan, ang Bulan. Ang pangalan ng bayan ay nagmula sa salitang Bikolano (at kahit sa Kapampangan at Bisaya) para sa buwan. Isa sa mga proyektong pinangasiwaan ng komisyon ay ang restorasyon o pagsasaayos ng “Bulan Presidencia” na dinisenyo ni Architect Tomas B. Mapua at ipinatayo pa noong 2021, ang unang narehistrong Pilipinong arkitekto na siya ring nagdisenyo ng St. La Salle Hall sa Maynila na isa sa mga “1,001 Building­s You Must See Before You Die.” “Presidencia” ang tawag sa mga naunang mga gusaling munisipal sa panahon ng Amerikano sapagkat a...

Bulkang Bulusan sa Sorsogon, nasa normal level na

IBINABA na ng Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) sa normal na lebel o alert level 0 ang Bulkang Bulusan sa Sorsogon. Ayon sa Phivolcs, inilagay sa normal status ang Bulusan matapos ang nakitang pagbaba sa monitoring parameters ang bulkan. Mula sa alert level 1 ay ibinaba na ito sa alert level 0, pero nagpaalala pa rin ang Phivolcs na maaari pa ring itaas ang naturang alerto sakaling may makitang “renewed increase” sa mga binabantayang parametro. Pinayuhan din ng Phivolcs ang publiko na iwasan ang pagpasok sa 4-kilometer radius permanent danger zone (pdz), partikular na sa mga vents dahil sa panganib na hatid ng posibleng steam-driven o phreatic eruption, rock fall at landslide.

Maria Isabela Galeria: 20/20 Vision for 2020

When Maria Isabela Galeria of Sorsogon started her Binibini journey last year, most everyone thought that she has all the potentials to become a winner. At the same time, though, she was still deemed too young by many to assume such a responsibility. But considering that she made it all the way to the Top 15, the indicators are clear. She should make a comeback and present a more improved version of herself that could spell victory in her second attempt. Now instead of refreshing your memory on the small cute details that went into her introductions as Binibini15 of Class 2019, we might as well focus on how else she can do better this time around. More life experiences would help a lot. But this aspect is a work-in-progress for anyone. I reckon that she needs to up her confidence even more...
