The bill provides that any parent, ascendant, teacher, or guardian, who uses corporal punishment, whether verbal, physical, mental or psychological, can be punished under the law.

House Bill 682 also protects students from abusive punishments from teachers and other academic authorities, regardless of when or where corporal punishment was executed.

If approved, the bill can send the guilty to jail.

---------------------
In Philippines, such laws are only paper-work, nobody can ever execute them among the ordinary people.

And this is the other side, millions of children without sufficient food.
There are now about 2 million streetchildren in the Philippines.

This is the other side of the law in UK/EU.

I will visit Philippines/Cebu again this coming week.

As I said in the other thread, I have no problems with my Filipina fostergirl there.
She is always grateful, that she has enough to eat, can go to school, and has medical insurance and can live in a house.

If you have problems with children in UK/EU send them for a few weeks to Philippines - mosquitos and malaria/dengue-fever and street-children and food-shortage - or send them during winter to a village in China.

There will be no UK/EU discipline discussion anymore, as considered to be pointless or baseless.

      Note the average age of the nine 737-300 they fly is 23.8 years.

      Rapid descent was in response to loss of cabin pressure.

      Hang on a minute, I just thought about this, why would an engine failure trigger oxygen masks? I'm not an aviation expert but I'm pretty sure a single engine failing wouldn't cause a descent so rapid it gives passengers nose bleeds. I suspect we're being mislead for whatever reason and the aircraft decompressed leading to the pilot making an emergency controlled descent.

      After reading this post I am determined not to use any Thai airlines in the future.

      Report from China Daily re: Orient Thai engine failure. . . "Some flight attendants reportedly began crying" This is a clear sign of root and branch failings in staff selection and training. If the cabin crew fall apart in a crisis, lord only knows what's going on with aircraft maintenance. As I said in the pseudo shoutbox, Fly-By-Wire is probably more like Fly-By-Wire-And-A-Wrap-of-Insulation-Tape .
