Rama to Gwen on BRT: Enough is enough

Cebu City Mayor Michael Rama has had enough.

The mayor hit Cebu Gov. Gwendolyn Garcia on her orders to stop the construction of the Cebu Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) in province-owned lots along Osmeña Boulevard.

He also swiped at Vice Mayor Raymond Alvin Garcia, who gave a privileged speech last Wednesday, Feb. 28, backing the governor’s move.

In a livestream episode from the Public Information Office, Rama reminded Garcia that he is the mayor of a highly urbanized city, and dared her to face him squarely.

Rama also listed down the times the governor interfered in matters involving the Cebu city government, the latest of which was this year’s Sinulog festival when routes for the solemn foot procession were changed after Garcia opposed plans to close N. Bacalso avenue.

The mayor also lashed at Vice Mayor Garcia and some city council members for supporting the capitol’s memorandum over the BRT, accusing them of treachery for siding with the provincial government.

Love and relationships: Gen Z setting

When it comes to relationships, a question often gets to the young generation, specifically those who belong to Generation (Gen) Z: Do you believe in love?

In an interview with CDN Digital, Maria Lourdes Garilyos, a Population Program Officer of the Commission on Population and Development in Central Visayas, expressed her sadness about the kind of relationships Gen Zs face these days.

She adds that most younger people choose personal happiness over staying in a relationship and that technology has blurred the traditional forms of expressing love.

These may cause a lack of effort, communication, and commitment in a relationship

Garilyos added that these elements may explain why some people choose to be single or refuse to commit altogether.
