Philippine Army Modernization

Philippine Army Modernization








The aim of Philippine policy makers is to have a Philippine Army
that is muti-mission oriented force that can effectively and
efficiently address internal and external security threats.

The inadequacy of the Philippine Army to provide external security
with its obsolete military equipments became very clear after the
US withdraw its military bases in the Philippines.

The Philippine Army remains one of the weakest military in Asia both
in terms of military capability and defense spending.

The Philippine Army long wanted a ground defense capability.

Military modernization act has been passed twice, once during the term
of President Ramos and again during the term of President Aquino.

It is during the term of President Aquino when the Philippine Army
saw a significant increase in their capability as a result of new
equipment purchases.

The Philippine Army's standard issued M-16 now has been replaced by
newer M-4 rifle. That is a good start for the army&#…

Health Insurance For Senior Citizens Philippines


Health insurance for senior citizens in the Philippines may be availed
in 2 ways.
1. By becoming a member of Philhealth or the Philippine Health
   Insurance Corporation. It is a government owned and controlled
   corporation.
2. By buying a health insurance policy from private health insurance
   company.

There are 30 licensed private life insurance companies in the
Philippines offering various health insurance products.

My mother is 60 years old and a senior citizen and I searched the
Internet for health insurance products that are cheap and easy to
buy without need of medical examination.

But before looking for an insurance product to buy from private
insurance companies in the Philippines, please be aware that there
is a Philippine Law that provides for the mandatory PhilHealth
coverage for all senior citizens. Premium payments are subsidized by
the Philippine government.

Judicial Notice When Mandatory

Judicial Notice When Mandatory








Judicial Notice – no more than that the court will bring to its aid
and consider, without proof of the facts, its knowledge of those
matters of public concern which are known by all well-informed persons.

                - cognizance of certain facts which judges may take
and act on without proof because they are already known to them.

The object of judicial notice is to save time, labor and expense in
securing and introducing evidence on matters which are not ordinarily
capable of dispute and not actually bonafide disputed, and the tenor
of which can safely be assumed form the tribunal’s general knowledge
or from slight search on its part.

Judicial notice is based on convenience and expediency.

Two kinds of judicial notice
1) Mandatory
2) Discretionary

The direct effect of judicial notice upon the burden of proving a
fact is to relieve the parties from the necessity of introducing
evidence to prove the fact noticed. It makes evidence unnecessary.
