for example….

Philippine Daily Inquirer The enemies were gone by the time troops entered the Moro stronghold in Zamboanga Sibugay province.xxx Soldiers found trails of blood that led to a small mosque in an empty fishing village at Talaib Point in Payao town.

The Buzz, ABS-CBN, takes on cyberbullying on Twitter (interview, Marichu Lambino)

“The Buzz!” of ABS-CBN,  takes on bullying on the net translated by “The Buzz!” as “paninira“, or, in particular, cyberbullying on Twitter.

(1.5-minute excerpt of the segment, used here for review and academic purposes, shown two weeks ago, or last Oct. 31, 2010, on Channel 2 ABS-CBN)

shot Oct. 30, thank you to “The Buzz!” production team for their patience, i had cramps that day. Thanks thanks! And thank you also to the hosts for the upbeat intro and voice-over!

A good empirical study to make, too, is: What sort of people engage in bullying or “paninira”  in the internet? those that don’t involve public interest or issues.  – A psychological- profile- sort- of- study. We could probably ask the psychologists: My theory is that, those who engage in this (bullying, paninira in the internet) have low self-esteem. Just a theory — Let’s ask our friends in psych. (i probably read that somewhere, it’s not even original,  or my siblings who’ve worked in the psych ward probably mentioned it in a conversation, or sumthin’)   What is the cause of low self-esteem? —  i don’t know, it’s probably complicated, ask the psychologists! (criminals however are another matter). Thank god it’s Friday! Happy weekend, y’all!
