RIP Isabel Granada

 RIP Isabel Granada

Singer actress Isabel Granada passes away at 41 Saturday night in Doha. She shot to fame as a child and teen star in the 1980s.

Geryk Genasky Aguas, Granada’s former husband who spoke from Qatar where Granada was confined for more than a week, confirmed the news in a report on dzMM Sunday morning, Manila time.

The actress died at Hamad General Hospital in Doha, where she was rushed after she collapsed at a fan meet-and-greet in the same city on October 25.

The condition that led to her collapse was described as a brain hemorrhage indicating aneurysm, which in turn affected her heart.

Aguas said Granada was declared brain-dead by doctors on October 27. She never woke up from her coma.

The remains of actress Isabel Granada will be brought back to the Philippines on Wednesday this week.

Granada's partner, Arnel Cowley, told GMA News that he will bring home the actress' remains from Qatar on Wednesday night.

Other close relatives of the actress who went to Qatar after she fell into a coma were scheduled to return to the country today.

Cowley said they were planning to have Granada's remains cremated.

He said the actress had told her while they were attending a friend's wake in Australia that she would like her remains to be cremated.

Cowley, however, said this would depend on the decision of his wife's mother.

He said Granada was declared dead at 6 p.m. in Qatar (11 p.m. Philippine time).

The official cause of death of the actress was brain hemorrhage due to aneurysm, he added.

Some of her movies include “Bakit Madalas ang Tibok ng Puso” (1986), “Shake Rattle and Roll 2” (1990), “Chickboys” (1994), “Ligaya ang Itawag Mo Sa Akin” (1997), and “Hubad sa Ilalim ng Buwan” (1999) among others.

MANILA - Horacio Castillo III, a law student at the University of Santo Tomas, experience "extreme pain and suffering" in a suspected fraternity hazing caused his dead body to bloat and it was peppered with bruises and burns, his father said on Monday.

The 22-year-old student told his parents that he had been accepted to the "Juris Aegis fraternity" after completing tasks like cleaning hallways and running errands for members. On Saturday, he attended the organization's welcoming rites at the UST campus, his father Horacio Castillo Jr. told ABS-CBN News.

The freshman law student never made it home.

A resident found Castillo's body dumped in a street in Balut, Tondo on the wee hours of Sunday. He was rushed to the Chinese General Hospital, but was already lifeless when he reached the hospital.

His family found him there after receiving a tip from an anonymous text message, his father said.

WARNING: Online scammer, gumagamit ng private message sa pag-hack ng social media account

scam, Phishing scam, internet scam, facebook scam

Ingat tayo sa mga PM, PM sa Facebook pwede pala ma-hack ang account mo! Ilang netizen ang nabiktima ng online scammer para mang-hack ng social media account gamit ang private message na kunwaring may "sex video scandal" ang kanilang tatargetin.

Sa ulat ni Joseph Morong sa GMA News "24 Oras" nitong Lunes, ikinuwento ni Freshelle Fernandez kung papaano na-hack ang kaniyang Facebook account nang matanggap ang mensahe sa messenger mula sa isang kakilala, na una na palang na-hack ang account.

Sabi ni Freshelle nagpadala ng mensahe ang kaniyang friend sa messenger tungkol daw sa kaniyang private video at may kasamang "link."

Dahil may agam-agam, pinindot niya (click) ang "link" at dito ay pinag-log-in siya. Inilagay niya ang password sa account at doon na naagaw ang kaniyang Facebook account.

"Napakagaling na po yung technology ngayon. Kayang- kaya pong iedit gamit yung mukha ko kaya po natakot ako tsaka kinabahan. Kasi kahit po hindi ako yung nasa video, kung pangalan ko po yung gamit, iisipin po ng mga tao na ako 'yun," paliwanag ni Fernandez.

Ginamit na rin ng hacker ang kaniyang account para makapanloko ng mga taong nasa friend list niya at kunwaring nag-aalok ng mamahaling cellphone.

Ayon sa I.T. expert na si Jerry Liao, ang nangyari kay Fernandez ay isang uri ng online scam na tinatawag na "phishing scam."

"Basically 'pag nag-enter ka ng username at password, mapupunta yun dun sa cybercriminal, then of course nakarecord 'yon, they can use your log-in information into your website or  to your account, Facebook account. So puwede na nilang gawin kung anong gusto nilang gawin sa account mo," paliwanag ni Liao.

Matapos mag-viral ang kuwento ni Fernandez, nagsilabasan na rin ang iba pang nagkuwento na nakaranas ng kahalintulad na modus operandi ng panloloko sa Facebook.

Sa record ng PNP-Anti-cybercrime Group, apat lang ang kaso ng "phishing scam" sa halos 4,600 cyber crime cases mula 2013 hanggang nitong Hunyo.

Ngunit hindi raw ibig sabihin nito na madalang ang naturang uri ng panloloko. Sa halip, madalas daw nauuwi ang "phishing scam" sa mas malalang krimen.

"Ang pagrereport kasi nila dito, yung secondary offense na na-commit ng offender after committing the offense of phishing, like online scam and sextortion cases. Dapat na agad-agad sila na mag-report lalong-lalo na dito sa aming opisina," ayon kay Police Senior Inspector Artemio Cinco, PIO, PNP Anti-Cybercrime Group.

Upang hindi mabiktima ng "phishing scam," ipinayo ni Liao na laging maging mapanuri at magduda lalo na kung humihingi ng mga personal na impormasyon tulad ng mga bank account at password.

Huwag din umanong maniwala kaagad sa mga natatanggap na mensahe lalo na sa mga hindi kakilala. At kung kakilala ang nagpadala ng mensahe at humihingi rin ng sensitibong mga impormasyon, makabubuting kontakin muna ang mga ito para makumpirma kung sa kanila talaga galing ang ipinadalang mensahe. -- Source GMA News

Driver's License With 5-year Validity Will Be Issued Tomorrow

Driver's License 5 Years Valid, five years valid DL, identification cards, LTO Central Office, LTO to release first batch of 5-years-old-valid driver’s license,

The Land Transportation Office will release the first batch of driver’s license cards with five-year validity today at the LTO Central Office in Quezon City.

About three million Driver's license applicants who applied for new and renewed licenses since October 2016 will be receiving their five-year-valid identification cards starting tomorrow.

President Rodrigo Duterte had earlier signed Republic Act 1093 which allows the extension of the validity of the driver’s and conductor’s licenses from three years to five years.

In an interview with the Manila Bulletin Transportation Secretary Arthur Tugade said that the five-year license cards are made more durable from polycarbonate plastic and have improved security features.

He said that the agency awarded last April the P830-million procurement of the license cards to supply six million ID cards.

The transportation chief said that the supply would satisfy demands for driver’s license until 2018.

The LTO, however, was directed to be stricter on the issuance of the driver’s licenses to assure that licenses will only be issued to competent applicants with sufficient driving skills and knowledge of road safety and proper road courtesy.
