Robotic Surgery for PWD patients

Many Pinoys with disabilities are already burdened with having to take so much maintenance medication that their livers and kidneys become weaker over time. If the need arises, later in life, for surgery or any invasive procedure, the PWD’s body will not heal as fast. Possibly, the PWD patient may not even benefit from the surgery as the healing process may be compromised.

Intersex People: Are they PWDs too?

Did you know that it is improper to call or refer to a human being with sex developmental disorders as a “hermaphrodite”?  The proper term is “intersex” or a person whose body does not fit in the regular medical category of being either male of female. They are “i” in LGBTI.  To refer or label them as hermaphrodite is offensive as this term is only used for lower animal and plant life forms.

PETA’s Rak of Aegis Raks Anew

A young girl takes a video of herself singing and later goes viral on Youtube and finds fame and opportunity knocking on her door. This is basically the story of the hit Pinoy musical “Rak of Aegis”.  Yes, it sounds like “Rock of Ages” simply because it was meant to be so. It started with a joke some years back, when the director was in a conversation with a song writer and he jested “if there is a Rock of Ages, then there should the Rak of Aegis.” And the rest, so they say, is history.
