Mayweather dominating against the numero uno Juan Miguel Marquez

Mayweather and Marquez

After the long awaited fight of the number one versus the numero uno. The undefeated known to be as Floyd "money" Mayweather dominated the fight against the three time world champion Juan Miguel Marquez. On the first round Mayweather took already the advantage, most of his punch were landed on the face of Marquez that made a cut on his right part of his eyebrow. On the second round Marquez was knockdown on a very strong right upper jab of Mayweather. Marquez realeases so many strong punches that made his opponent cover and stay away from it. However it didn't work out for the counter punch executed by Mayweather until the twelve rounds end. So the final decision was unanimous and given it to Floyd Mayweather. He has already got his 40th win after 21 months of retirement. He said the he misses this kind of atmosphere and most likely the talk of the town might be Shane Mosley and Manny Pacquiao to be his next opponent. Indeed, it was a great fight and proven again as one of the best pound for pound boxer.

9/11 memories

world trade center

It's been 8 years already when America bombarded with terrorist attacked. It was on September 11 year 2001 when two Airplanes hit the great Twin Tower in New York and killed almost 3000 innocent people. American together with President Obama commemorates the 9/11 day and one of the highlights of this event is to mention the names of the victims while ringing the bell in giving them due respect and honor. President Obama said that he will not allow again those barbaric acts of Al Qaeda and he will find ways to resolve all of these terrorism activities. It was very sentimental and very dramatic event for the Americans and for those who were involve on the tragic. This is the day to all New Yorkers as what President Obama emphasized since they are greatly affected on the attacks. But then again it was not only addressed only to the Americans but to the whole regions in the world to fight against terrorism and may the 9/11 memories may continue to live until justice is serve.

Aquino's Legacy continues

After the death of former President Cory will Noynoy continues the legacy of his parents in defending the country from any political interest? We all know what does his parents did to free the nations from dictatorship of former President Marcos. Going back to the history Ninoy said to his last speech in America that he shall drop the last blood for the restoration of the Philippine democracy. Then it was realized when Ninoy shot before he landed and returned to his native land. Though it was a tragic and painful especially to the family who left behind. But it is an awakening mode for all Filipinos to fight and stop those abusive works of the government. And the late Cory Aquino continued what her husband started and became the first ever woman president .
local news

These are the moments and highlights why we are having a stable governance today, of course lets owe this one to Ninoy and Cory, they are the icons of democracy . In this coming 2010 election, its time to choose a leader that would unify the two parties from political disputes. A lot of faces reveal from the candidacy but the silent Noynoy was chosen among his countrymen to run for president. It was a big challenge to Noynoy to go for a very big responsibilities. Question since we have already heard him that he is accepting the challenge will he be able to change the view of politics today? Or will he be accepted and be respected from his co politician if ever he will be chosen? The fact is let us give him the chance and Noynoy is just human and sometimes can commit mistakes but as long as he is sincere to serve the nation with trust and loyal then lets give him the way for him to prove it.
