2017 Just found @the_bookfairies in Dubai!m. as local people turned up early to avoid the blistering midday heat though the previous weeks record temperatures nudging 558C in some parts were at least matched by the fiery exchanges that brought campaigning to a scorching climax Five candidates are vying to replace outgoing President Benigno Aquino III who is ineligible for election after a serving a single six-year term Latest polls have Duterte 11 percentage points ahead of his nearest opponent prompting Aquino to urge the trailing pack to consolidate behind a single challenger and avert what he says would be a reversion to dictatorship "We should remember how Hitler came to power" Aquino told a campaign event Saturday for former Interior Secretary Mar Roxas whom the President is backing to succeed him "If you allow them to oppress your fellow man and you do not speak up you will be the next one to be oppressed" Duterte responded with trademark vitriol dismissing Aquino as a "son of a whore" and none of the other candidates have come out to support the proposal Aquino was apparently spurred by Dutertes vow to disband the Senate rewrite the Constitution and instill one-man rule if lawmakers obstruct his zero-tolerance policies to clean up the country But like much of the bombast that has characterized Dutertes campaign it is not completely clear how serious these remarks were Yet the exchange illustrates the polarizing nature of the 71-year-old former lawyer who commands fanatical support in Davao due to his hands-on approach fighting crime during over three decades as mayor Congressman and prosecutor His pledge to replicate this feat nationwide within six months has struck a chord across the archipelago’s disparate regions and socioeconomic strata Human-rights groups allege that "death squads" reporting to Duterte stalk criminals across sprawling Davao and conduct summary executions that have claimed hundreds of innocent lives However Duterte is unapologetic for the tactics hes used to clean up this city of 15 million once renowned as a lawless hub of communists Islamic militants and gangsters but which now has a reputation for thriving security "If I make it to the presidential palace I will do just what I did as mayor" Duterte told a crimson sea of 200000 supporters in Manilas Rizal Park on Saturday "All of you who are into drugs you sons of bitches I will really kill you I have no patience I have no middle ground either you kill me or I will kill you idiots" Such threats have become almost blasé amid the myriad scandals to blight Dutertes campaign during which he joked that he "should have been first" in the 1989 rape of an Australian missionary said he would "kill" his own children if they dabbled in drugs and told a womens-rights group to "go to hell" Most recently Senator Antonio Trillanes IV who is running as an independent for Vice President alleged that Duterte collected salaries for 11000 phantom staff in Davao and didnt declare as required some $51 million held in a joint bank account with his daughter Duterte has denied any impropriety and accused Trillanes of a brazen political ploy Read More: Everything You Need to Know About the Philippine General Election Only time will tell whether the allegations will derail Dutertes charge to the Malacañang Palace According to Philippines electoral law the candidate who receives the most votes is the victor no matter if he or she did not secure an outright majority "Our people are really eager to cast their vote lining up early" Peter Lavina Dutertes campaign manager told a press conference in Davao on Monday morning "But were are getting reports of missing names … machines not working Generally things are OK So far we have not received serious complaints" For outside observers the rise of the maverick Duterte is perplexing considering that the Philippines long dubbed the "sick man of Asia" is now considered a nation on the up Annual growth stands at around 65% inflation is low and the young English-speaking population is a demographic sweet spot for foreign investment Still support has been muted for moderate candidates like Roxas an economist and scion of one of the Southeast Asian nations most prominent political families or Senator Grace Poe a foundling who was adopted by Philippine movie legend Fernando Poe Many analysts see Roxas as the sensible continuity choice though he has struggled to charm voters after a gaff-laden early campaign Poe has been dogged by contentions that she failed to fulfill a minimum residency requirement and once renounced her Philippine citizenship to live in the US Vice President Binay also in the running has been rocked by serious graft allegations which he strenuously denies while Senator Miriam Defensor Santiago has never been in serious contention "The concern is that the electorate is not very mature they tend to look at personalities rather than candidates policies" says Gareth Leather senior Asia analyst for Capital Economics "And theres a risk that you could get a more populist President who perhaps doesnt have the countrys best interests at heart and doesnt make the sort of reforms the country needs" Although Aquinos term saw significant inroads in fighting corruption and reducing the budget deficit many complain the economic boom lacks inclusiveness given a quarter of the 100 million population wallows below the poverty line Farmers are particularly vulnerable to droughts and typhoons and many have taken to the street to protest in recent weeks Infrastructure remains dismal across much of the country undermining efforts to build a commanding manufacturing economy Aside from domestic travails whomever proves victorious will also have to contend with simmering geopolitical squabbles especially in the South China Sea where both Manila and Beijing claim the resource-rich Spratly Islands Aquino has been bullish in standing up to Chinese territorial claims filing a case against Beijing at the International Court of Arbitration in the Hague and agreeing to ramped up US troop rotations at Philippine ports With the Philippines assuming the chair of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) next year the new President will have plenty to manage both domestically and overseas Washington will be watching unfolding events nervously Along with Vietnam the Philippines is key to US foreign policy in Asia as a friendly state on the southern flank of China According to Professor John Sidel a Southeast Asia expert at the London School of Economics "The Philippines is a country where American influences and interests are much more strongly entrenched and where Chinese influence and leverage is much weaker" The risk for the US is that if a Duterte presidency began to show authoritarian tendencies provoking criticism by Washington the Philippine government may respond by cozying up to Beijing Already when the US and Australian ambassadors condemned Dutertes rape remarks he responded by threatening to sever diplomatic ties Adds Sidel: "This could lead to a period of coolness if not crisis in US-Philippine relations" Write to Charlie Campbell at [email protected] yoga teachers across the country can now let out a collective “om” of relief According to a decision last week by the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit a popular Los Angeles yoga teacher named Bikram Choudhury cannot claim copyright protection on the sequence of 26 poses during hot yoga sessions that he teaches Choudhury has long threatened other yoga instructors with legal action for teaching the same series of posessuch as the half-moon and eagle posesin their hot yoga classes without his permission Over the past decade some instructors have settled out of court with Choudhury to avoid a legal battle according to The New York Times But the ruling last week put Choudhury’s intimidations to an end handing victory to a Florida-based yoga studio that taught the same sequence of poses in a heated studio "Consumers would have little reason to buy Choudhury’s book if Choudhury held a monopoly on the

whose participation in the marketplaces is vital to the success of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act In his latest bid to persuade people to enroll before a March 31 deadline for 2014 coverage Obama found himself on the defensive noting for example that some enrollees might have to change doctors"For the average person many folks who don’t have health insurance initially they’re going to have to make some choices And they might end up having to switch doctors in part because they’re saving money" said Obama That was a change from his assurance to Americans in 2009 when he was trying to get the law passed that "if you like the doctor you have you can keep your doctor"The WebMD interview was part of Obama’s recent push to reach people beyond traditional media On Tuesday he made a direct appeal to the youthful audience of comedy website Funny or Die by appearing on its talk show parody hosted by comedian Zach GalifianakisThe Obama administration is targeting younger Americans because they are cheaper to insure and can compensate for older policy holders who have been able to obtain affordable insurance due to the law known as ObamacareIn his WebMD session Obama did not answer directly when asked whether private insurance companies were "sabotaging" the healthcare law and whether the country would be "better off taking them out of national healthcare altogether""Well you know this is an important debate" the president said adding that "there are some terrific insurance plans out there" but that some private insurers "don’t do a great job""There are pluses and minuses with having a private insurance system" Obama saidObama also acknowledged public skepticism in the healthcare law and its "inexcusable" and glitchy first month of online enrollment in October Obama said the HealthCareGov website was "fixed fairly rapidly" and now "works pretty darn well""The number of people who have signed up is already large enough that I’m confident the program will be stable" Obama said "But we look forward to seeing more and more people take advantage of it as some of the politics of the thing get drained away as people start feeling more confident about the website" His administration said on Tuesday that 42 million people have signed up for private health insurance under the law and that total enrollment could surpass a forecast of 6 million by the end of March Shehu Sani, To be sure, "We take a long-term view of the relationship between our two countries and will resolve the issue through dialogue and negotiation, a
