2021 Bucket List of Safety



The difficult times we experienced in the year 2020 should motivate us into thinking that we also need to create a “Safety Bucket List” for the year 2021. This year has given us a series of difficult events that shook and changed the course of our lives. The Australian Bushfire, the devastating storms and floods in Asian countries, the volcanic eruption in the Philippines, the earthquakes from different parts of the world, the Locust Swarms in some parts of Asia and Africa, the Cyclone Amphan in India & Bangladesh, and of course, the COVID-19 are some of the major catastrophic events that unfolded in the past year. Though we have overcome this year despite the difficulty, it is still important that we prepare ourselves for the year 2021.

The year 2021 is just around the corner. At the end of every year, it is a common practice by most to create a bucket list for the following year. A bucket list is a list of items that someone would like to do for the next year or the succeeding years. Some of the most common items on bucket lists are: 1) experience the Northern Lights, 2) go on a week-long cruise, 3) visit the eight wonders of the world, 4) establish a healthy work-life balance, and 5) go vegan.

THE “RAINFULL” PARTS OF THE WORLD (Average Annual Rainfall)



Year after year in the Philippines, from June to early part of December, people get ready for the “rainfull season” (a season with full of rain)! It is this time of the year where children play in the mud, singles read books in coffee shops, mothers buy raincoats for their children and fathers hum the tune of “raindrops keep falling on my head” enroute to work. It’s the time of the year!

Different countries experience different rainfall intensity

Here’s Why River Overflow can Lead to Flood Damage



Flood can be very terrifying if you live near rivers. Though called in many literature as a source of life, rivers can actually take lives when they overflow. Rivers carry many risks especially when there is heavy rainfall and overtopping happens. When there is too much water because of very high rainfall volume, water can burst in the banks, causing dry areas to be flooded.

How German Technology can Contain PH Flood Disasters



The world is drowning. While it continues to battle the global pandemic, yet another calamity has literally drowned several parts of Asia and America. For two consecutive weeks in November 2020, Typhoons Rolly and Ulysses, with international names Goni and Vamco respectively, lashed several areas in the Philippines affecting millions of people and damaging millions worth of dollars to infrastructure.

The world is drowning. While it still continues to battle with a global pandemic, yet another calamity has literally drowned several parts of Asia and America. In the beginning of November 2020, Typhoon Rolly, called Goni internationally, affected some areas of the Philippines. The biggest impact was experienced in the Bicol region. A week after, as the Filipinos started rebuilding their lives and livelihoods, they were battered again by another storm, the Typhoon Ulysses, international name Vamco. Ulysses, after affecting eight regions in the country, went straight to Vietnam, damaging everything that gets on its way. This situation is not unique to Asia, though. Reports show that Hurricane Iota which pummeled Central America has brought heavy rain, extreme winds and storm surges over the region. Iota is recorded as the 30th hurricane to cross the region.
