Biggest task not fully understood

Nobody really understood what I was doing from July to December 2015. I just got back from my maternity leave not really wanting to do management system audits. I was extremely frustrated, nothing is happening, but since January 2015, I have been reviewing documents, procedures, guidelines, contractual requirements on the health, safety, security and environment (HSSE) for the fabrication of seventeen (17) modules for delivery to the Yamal LNG project. I was also locally managing a contractual arrangement with BV Russia.

Looking back, as good as what you know

Tried the free media offered by wordpress. I still feel that I am not ready for http://www.ecomaray.org or http://www.ecomaray.com or whatever, I'm simply happy getting this blog going and not really making money out of it.  So I chose a woodworker. Not in the biblical or religious sense where it is widely known that Jesus …

Eureka Moment while in a Toxic Daze

Its Good Friday and in my free time, I was curious enough to read a copy of Casarett & Doull's Toxicology.  Me, reading a medical, pharmacological book (purposively bad grammar)? Because it will soon be a requirement next semester when I take up Industrial Toxicology. I am even thinking twice about taking the course due …

Colder Greenwash!

I love writing about greenwashing, but I really really hate the fact that its happening in the Philippines. Been doing this since 2009 and not much progress, I guess.  Ecolabeling is purely voluntary but greenwashing is rampant everywhere, it makes me cringe. I wish I could do something about it in my own little way which is to inform consumers, but my personal resources are so limited. I would just like to highlight the fact that this sticker's claim that it is environment-friendly is a blatant lie.  

I didn’t learn politics from school

This is the best time to write about Gina Lopez. She has been my favorite subject matter for a few years now ever since that fateful first impression at the Development Academy of the Philippines seven years ago.  "What is DAP?" she haughtily asked, that bravado kind of turned us off,  given her limited knowledge …

Its not always what it CEMS.

What could be the objective of this coal-fired power plant for publishing its weekly air emission data in a nationally circulated newspaper? I find it quite strange and they even have to put it on the front page which calls for much public attention.  Given the nice green graphics, of course they do want to …

When you love something

Today,  the Paris Agreements which calls for global climate action is set into force. Does anyone among the people I truly love understand what this is all about? Even the President of the Philippines does not even understand the context of the Paris Agreements and he has to rely on his advisers on how to …
