Updated Bike Lane Maps and Where to Find Them

Updated Bike Lane Maps and Where to Find Them

2021-11-29 07:40 PST

Are you from or is planning to visit the Philippines? The Philippines Department of Transportation (DOTr) recently asked Google to include bike lanes in Google Maps, which was a very good move as the country is learning to live with biking as a mode of transportation instead of only as a form of exercise and sports. But why wait when there are already existing and updated maps for bike lanes in the Philippines?

Lessons learnt from FacebookDown

Lessons learnt from FacebookDown

The longest downtime in the history of Facebook, Instagram, Messenger, and WhatsApp, should have had triggered meetings in many companies on business continuity and the importance of having a Plan B and a Plan C. This will also be remembered and used in schools and studies as the number one example on how not to setup security systems.

Yet main are asking: what else is there other than Facebook, Instagram, Messenger, and WhatsApp? They cornered the market and are as good as a monopoly. They are the Internet. They are the social web. Right?

NO and no.

The Yellow Bells of Piddig

The Yellow Bells of Piddig

In the National Capital Region, a highly urbanised metropolitan, seeing flowers randomly is almost impossible for decades now. Thus, when we went to Ilocos Norte, Philippines a few years back, I had the opportunity to see these beautiful Yellow Bell flowers growing in the home that we went to. This was the first time I saw a Yellow Bell up close, I’ve only seen this in school textbooks.

Here are a few photos I took.

Philippine ISPs caught hijacking connections

Philippine ISPs caught hijacking connections

A friend of mine noticed that Philippine ISPs started to hijack connections to certain websites and they are also using a fake SSL certificate. If a user choose the option to continue despite the warning about an invalid SSL certificate, they will see a Philippine government warning and the related Republic Act explaining why they–our ISPs–are hijacking our connection.

Let’s take a look at an example.

The YOOki (柳紀 ・ 유 기) Chronicles

The YOOki (柳紀 ・ 유 기) Chronicles is ᜌᜓᜃᜒ (Yuki ・ 雪亮)’s return into casual and personal blogging. The name “YOOki” is a mash-up of the acronym of YourOnly.One and my nickname ᜌᜓᜃᜒ (Yuki ・ 雪亮).

Interestingly, according to Chinese legend, 「柳」 (YOO) is an ancient Chinese surname. The ancestors of the surname were closely linked with the ancient sage-king named Yu Shun. In Korea, the 「유」 (YOO) lineage traces to the Xia, Han, and Joseon dynasties. Holders of the surname Yu or Yoo had a reputation for charity and diligence.1

It is also the word for “willow” or the “willow tree” which means graceful or slender; and a tree growing near a body of water which provide continuous nourishment and resources for everyone. It can also mean to exist, an oil (anointment(?)), and simply as “U” (you).

The hanzi 「紀」 (ki) character means to record, be disciplined, provide order. While the hangul equivalent, 「기」 (ki; gi), means energy, spirit, a banner, and a period of time; and is also a suffix used to make a gerund or an infinitive.

Can you guess what I mean by 「柳紀」 and 「유 기」 as the Chinese and Korean for “YOOki”?
