Overstaying Port Containers Get the Boot with Manifesto on Efficient Port Utilization

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Overstaying containers in ports nationwide will soon be cleared, as the Department of Transportation (DOTr), Philippine Ports Authority (PPA), Bureau of Customs (BOC), together with port management officials, inked a Manifesto of Support today, 15 March 2019, for the efficient utilization of Philippine ports.

The manifesto of support aims to prevent the imbalance of inbound and outbound containers borne by the unscrupulous practice of using the ports for prolonged storage of their containers until the withdrawal of goods will yield to maximum profit.

DOTr Secretary Arthur Tugade witnessed the manifesto signing, which was inked by BOC Commissioner Rey Leonardo Guerrero, PPA General Manager Jay Daniel Santiago, International Container Terminal Services Inc. (ICTSI) Senior Vice President Christian Gonzales, Asian Terminals Inc. (ATI) Senior Vice President Sean Perez, and Association of International Shipping Lines President Patrick Ronas.

“I give my full commitment and full happiness in witnessing the manifesto. Signing this manifesto is one thing, doing and implementing it is another, and going beyond it will equally spell good business relationships within the country... This is not for show. This is for real,” Secretary Tugade emphasized.

Under the manifesto, the PPA will publish a Notice in a newspaper of general circulation, directing all cargo owners, shippers, consignees, logistics operators, and customs brokers to withdraw cleared containers currently being stored at ports within fifteen (15) days from the date of publication. Failure to comply will lead to the transfer of containers to designated Inland Container Depots by the ATI and ICTSI, at the expense of the concerned parties.

Additionally, cleared containers by the BOC that were not removed from the port within thirty (30) days will also be transferred by ATI and ICTSI to their respective Inland Container Depots.

Aside from the removal of overstaying containers, ATI and ICTSI shall regularly provide the government with information on the health of their respective ports, and information on containers that have stayed at the port for at least thirty (30) days from arrival.

“Today is a milestone as all stakeholders from the private sector and the government have come together to implement a sustainable solution to face the problems in our ports,” PPA GM Santiago said.

Meanwhile, international shipping lines are required to promptly remove containers from the Philippines within the period prescribed by the BOC, either by their regular call vessels or by sweeper vessels. The BOC will regularly dispose of seized or abandoned containers to ensure that the Manila International Container Terminal (MICT) and South Harbor (SH) are efficiently utilized.

“We are committed to make sure that our ports remain efficient. Rest assured that the BOC will continue to support undertakings such as this to boost revenue and to improve our position globally as a major player in the industry,” BOC Commissioner Guerrero said.

Dahua and Seagate Partner to Give You Best Surveillance Solutions

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Seagate was the most preferred hard disk or storage portable drives brand that I used in my business back 2008 and onwards. It was the most recommended brand used by our community of businessmen operating tech-related companies. It was the top brand on my list even before that...and I guess it has not changed until the present day.

The only time I used a different brand was when there are no stock....and I couldn't afford to return for another day since you tend to lose earning opportunities if you are too slow to make decisions.

During those times, I could very well say I had no problems with this brand, even after we got struck by Typhoon Ondoy that flooded the entire floor of my business establishment, their warranty allowed replacement of the flash flood-soaked hard I got brand new drives after just a few days.

Now, Seagate is still boasting of being the leader in storage solutions, including for surveillance video data. In partnership with Dahua, they flaunt of the best match to make sure your CCTV videos, including other pertinent data the system is able to identify, captured by Dahua equipments are safe and secured for even non-stop 24 hours and 7 days a week usage. With so many features for both brands, they may really be the best choice out there. You may also see UERC products.

Though I still prefer the SSD technology, it may take a while for it to catch up with the huge storage requirements, and the necessary affordability. The price of the better technology is still not worth the investment and could not cope with the storage requirement.

Watch our earlier Facebook Live coverage of the event to get the details. But we'll try to post them here once the complete data is sent to us.

Below is the official press release from the event:

Nuclear Reactors are Still Relevant and are Here to Stay

Wazzup Pilipinas!

The ever first manmade nuclear reactor was made known to people in 1942. However, since its creation, nuclear reactors have had their fair share of troubles. These troubles go to the extent of raising eyebrows on whether nuclear reactors are here to stay or they will be wiped away.

The slow growth of Nuclear reactors

The use of nuclear reactors has not been that high as expected. When it was first introduced, nuclear reactors used to be built under high secrecy. In fact, the nuclear reactors were just aimed to help the military sector through the production of submarines and bombs. This changed when the use of nuclear reactors was publicized. It became evident in the United States and other industrialized nations.

The nuclear reaction technology became popular in the 1950s. It became essential in genuine commercial use. Unfortunately, this growth was just present for a short time. The negative public perception, fear, distrust and industry management made the use of nuclear energy to diminish. Come 1979 the use of nuclear energy in the United States had reduced tremendously. No new Nuclear energy and related projects had been commissioned since 1977. The united states were reluctant to fully embrace the use of Nuclear energy. This opposition dealt a major blow to the growth and expansion of nuclear reactors.

Countries like Ukraine and France seem to be the ones making the most out of nuclear energy. A good amount of electricity is generated from nuclear reactions. Countries in Asia are also in full support of nuclear energy. For instance, Japan and China are planning to create more nuclear energy plants in the coming years. This just proves that the future is bright for nuclear reactors.

Fear of nuclear energy consequences
Nuclear energy has had its fair share of severe consequences. Its negative effects date back to World War II, during the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. This incident just showed how bad nuclear energy can be. Other occurrences include the Chernobyl disaster and Tohoku earthquake that tampered with the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant. Despite, the benefits that accrue from the use of nuclear energy, there is still doubt if it is safe. The many negative effects of nuclear energy are responsible for slowing down its growth. Some countries such as North Korea and Iran that run nuclear reactors plants secretly only causes fear around the world.

The Reintroduction of Nuclear Reactors

Despite the negative consequences caused by Nuclear reactors, there is still hope. There are new technologies being put in place to enhance the safety of Nuclear energy. For instance, China has come up with nuclear reactors that do not succumb any meltdown. The meltdown is avoided through the use of graphite to house uranium oil and utilization of heat transfer systems. NASA is also engaged in research with an aim to make the use of nuclear energy safe.


All hope is not lost. There is a possibility that nuclear reactors are going to be made safer. Nuclear energy is going to be one of the best alternative sources of electricity. The research and technological advancements being made by various countries and authorities just prove that there is hope for nuclear energy.

black coffee (100 ml): 40 - 60 mg;
