Baka maligaw kayo sa Colloseum, hindi Araneta kung hindi yong nasa Rome. Doon ginaganap yong labanan ng mga gladiators at mga slaves noong mga panahon.
picture taken by my brother
Maraming raket din ang nagaganap, kagaya ng pagsingil ng malaking pera para lang sila magpretrato kasama ang mga turista. Parang Baguio baga. Meron ding papakiusapan mong kunan ka ng picture pero hindi isosoli saiyo ang camera hanggang hindi ka nagbayad at tatakutin ka pa. Sa Pagsanjan Falls naman yong mga masasamang budhi doon, tatakutin kang itatapon nila sa tubig ang camera mo pag di ka nagbayad.
Kaya nga kahit saang gubat, may puno at sa puno may nakatirang tuko o ahas.
Some 20 "gladiators" or "centurions" have been arrested outside some of Rome's most famous tourist sites, in an undercover sting by police aimed at breaking up a violent racket targeting tourists, according to reports.The Guardian said other allegations against the gladiators including claims they demanded more than $40 to pose for a picture. "One ruse" was to offer to take a photograph of a tourist with their camera, then refuse to return it unless money was paid.Healthcare and Medicare Scam
My friend's mother would like to retire. She is already 68 but is still supporting her daughter and granddaughter. If she retires, the pension will not be enough for the three of them.
My older brother would like to get an early retirement. He is not retireable yet but the rumors that the funds for SSS and Medicare are running out makes him think of retiring. He's afraid that there will be not enough money for the future retirees.
US has already a problem with its debt and the healthcare scams bleed the fund dry too. The fraudulent transactions are in millions. Many wre convicted and a lot of them are Filipnios. One of those convicted. a Filipino, and an employee of Sunrise Nursing Registry escaped and went back to the Philippines. Nakakahiya.
Senior citizens who are sick and or not capable of taking care of themselves can avail of the Medicare paid services of caregivers. The scam is that the registry signed in seniors whom they pay $ 100 to 200 dollars in exchange of their claims for Medicare payments. The money goes to the registry.
Here is the news:
