ILOILO City – Human rights group Panay Alliance Karapatan is skeptical of the police investigation on the killing of Bayan Muna coordinator and long-time activist Jory Porquia. Under the leadership of then National Anti-poverty Commission chief Liza Maza, Porquia assumed the coordination of the agency’s projects in Panay Island from 2017 to 2018./PN “Some two weeks before he was killed, Jory was pursued by uniformed as well as plainclothes police officers,” according to Vergara. He was one of the founders of Bayan Muna and active in the party-list’s engagement in developing good relations with local political leaders in Panay Island. Panay Alliance Karapatan suspected those police officers belonged to the police stations of Molo and Arevalo districts. Porquia was shot to death early morning of April 30 in his house/coffee shop in Arevalo district by two men. In his youth a leader of the militant League of Filipino students, Porquia was a survivor of the martial law of then dictator Ferdinand Marcos. He subsequently worked as an overseas Filipino worker in the Middle East and later in China, where he was active in organizing and advocating Filipino migrants’ rights. “At around the same time, an intelligence officer went to Barangay Calaparan, Arevalo looking for ‘the one who recruits people to go to rallies,’” according to the human rights alliance. After Marcos was ousted in 1986 via the People Power Revolution, he served as OIC member of the National Youth Commission under President Corazon Aquino. Porquia was an active environmentalist, too. He was among the activists of the Madia-as Ecological Movement, which was instrumental in the banning of destructive commercial mining in Panay Island. Upon his return to the country, Porquia briefly engaged in the construction business and worked as Migrante organizer in Panay Island. “He committed no crime. His principles moved him to be consistent in his activism. He helped feed the poor affected by the lockdown during this COVID-19 pandemic. Killing him was a reprehensible and cowardly act,” said Vergara. The group recalled that the police “disrupted” the community cooking that Bayan Muna volunteers organized in Barangay San Juan, Molo on April 15. Porquia ran as councilor but failed to win, under Mayor Jerry Treñas’ slate in the 2007 elections. “We could not entrust to the police the investigation on the murder when it is the policemen themselves who are the suspects,” according to Reylan Vergara, secretary general of Panay Alliance Karapatan, in a statement.

The video shows the system’s main developer, Pranav Mistry, taking photographs with his hand, summoning up Amazon review data onto the cover of a physical book, displaying information about a person he’s just met on their tee-shirt, and calling someone by inputting a phone number onto the palm of his hand. Look out mobile phones, because in a decade’s time wearable systems may be the primary means of accessing the Web!In the TED presentation, Maes refers to this system as a “sixth sense” – a sense that would give us seamless, easy access to information on the fly about situations and objects we come across. The current system, albeit relatively clunky, could be purchased for as little as $350. Essentially it is made up of a webcam, a battery-powered 3M projector, mirror, phone and colored finger caps. But in 10 years – according to Maes, the period of time when this type of system might be fully developed – it could be one device and as small as a watch. Or indeed maybe even a brain implant. We’ve blogged a fair amount about sensors this year, because they connect the real world up to the Internet. The wearables system relies a lot on them, for example the caps on Pranav’s fingers. Add that to the many other points of connection to the Web and it’s a powerful system; for example the book has a barcode that, in combination with the wearable device, will pull down data from Amazon.com via the Web.The Internet as Sixth SenseAs explained in a Wired article earlier this year (found via h+ Magazine), a lot of the information that “helps us understand and respond to the world” doesn’t come from the 5 senses humans are usually born with. It comes from computers and, increasingly, the Web. So the goal of this MIT wearable device is to “harness computers to feed us information in an organic fashion, like our existing senses.”We at ReadWriteWeb are very excited about next-generation Internet interfaces, such as augmented reality and so-called cross reality. These wearable devices strike me as being the most impressive future Web interface that I’ve seen in a while. Check out the video and see if you agree. A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Related Posts One example given in the TED presentation was looking at a book in a bookstore. Currently to get access to reviews information, a person would need to take out their cellphone, open up Amazon’s mobile website – or a relevant iPhone app perhaps – and search for that book. Whereas with the wearable internet device demoed at TED, the user simply wiggles his or her fingers and up pops the Amazon rating on the front cover (reviews data can be reached by opening up the book). You can see the power of this as a next generation Internet interface, as it removes several manual steps from the process of receiving relevant, contextual information about something or someone. This type of product will undoubtedly go well beyond what mobile phones are capable of now. As Maes put it, mobile phones currently don’t have easy access to all of the relevant information we need on a daily basis. A mobile phone still requires a user to change their behavior, she said. Plus the Web as we know it today is full of manual steps, such as visiting websites and searching for information. In 10 years time we’d hope that the Web of Data would be much better realized, for example product data easily viewed outside of its official website no matter what the context. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market

Athlon SportsAthlon Sports has ranked every college football coach, No. 1 to No. 128, ahead of the 2016 season. You can view the full list here. The top of the list is what most people care about, though, and inside Athlon Sports’ top 10, there aren’t too many surprises. The biggest “surprise” is probably that there is only one SEC coach in the top 10, but there isn’t a clear SEC coach slight.

After that, there are a handful of coaches who could be deserving of the No. 3, No. 4 and No. 5 spots.If you were starting a college football program tomorrow, though, Harbaugh would almost certainly be the choice behind Saban and Meyer.
