Let's do this again, please refrain from off topic talks and also fake news. Do not post anything from Facebook (for example) without a trusted media source like established news site like cnn.com, NYT etc..

Healthy discussions lang kase dapat. If there's any need for arguments, atleast make it more opinionated and factual naman... imbes na pag usapan ang balita nauuwi lang lagi sa tirahan eh. :sweat:

ang sabihin mo when sharing news dapat for the sake of sharing it talaga.. hindi yung magshishare ng news about patayan tapos ang comment ay about fantardism sa isang political figure.. :facepalm:

mods,

mas maganda siguro kung ang lahat ng news thread dito sa PPS is exclusively for posting na lang ng news articles (with source) tapos NO comments/discussions allowed na lang.

Gawa na lang ng separate debate thread para dun mag usap ang mga gustong mag labo-labo.

suggestion ko lang naman :sweat: ...

Sa akin lang, ang purpose din ng forums ay to share articles and share opinions ng mga members.
Yun pag-uusapan natin ang mga bagay-bagay. hindi yun mag-post lang ng sources from the internet.
Unlike sa mga nag-cocomment sa mga news articles na usually unmoderated at madalas pa nga rin ay mga off topic pa yun mga comments para mapansin lang na nag-comment sila. memasabi lang.

no personal attacks. no pambibintang. wag na ilabas pa yung mga nakaraan. we will be ok :D

America attacked Syria. mixed ang reaction ko pero dami supporters ng pag attack including mga leaders na ayaw kay Trump. pati mga Syrian citizens agree din. sana tamang decision yun.

its been making the rounds online just today...

what i dont understand is bakit nag overbook ang airline? shouldn't they have any procedure to prevent this in the first place? Like when seats are already filled up dapat hindi na allowed mag book pa.

accdg sa mga reports, apat daw sila na nag overbook tapos nagtanong yata ang crew kung sinong willing mag volunteer to leave the flight pero walang kumuha. Later on, nag offer daw ng compensation so 3 sa apat na passengers pumayag except for 1 - sya yung nakunan ngayon sa video.

no matter how you look at it, mali pa rin talaga ang airline. Let's wait na lang for a statement from the victim siguro since partial lang yung video na pinalabas. Who knows baka naging difficult din sya that led plane officials to forcibly take him off of the plane.

United CEO apologizes in full: ‘No one should ever be mistreated this way
“The truly horrific event that occurred on this flight has elicited many responses from all of us: outrage, anger, disappointment,” United CEO Oscar Munoz wrote in a letter to staffers. “I share all of those sentiments, and one above all: my deepest apologies for what happened. Like you, I continue to be disturbed by what happened on this flight and I deeply apologize to the customer forcibly removed and to all the customers aboard. No one should ever be mistreated this way. I want you to know that we take full responsibility and we will work to make it right.”
...imho, napilitan na lang sya mag apologize kasi bumagsak na ang stocks nila. :facepalm:

I don't think that is the last of his flip-flops

meanwhile United Airlines is in hot water, a lot of aggrieved passengers are coming out, they should just increase the monetary amount for volunteering to give up a seat, just imagine if it reaches like $1000+ a lot of people would volunteer lol
