Seeing the Daylight - reading good news about the Philippines and Pinoys

A lot of things are happening in the Philippines today. Monitoring the news gives a combination of both good, bad, and ugly updates.

However, if there is one thing I certainly appreciate - that is how the government, especially at the top office of the land, embraces social media to spread the word about what it is doing.

I don't get to monitor the news often. However, receiving the Daylight newsletter weekly makes me optimistic about our country's future. (You can receive this weekly update by just visiting the http://gov.ph and subscribe to the newsletter.)

Some suggestions I have in mind - to make the site more useful is to have a podcast version of the President's speeches. Although the transcripts are there, it will be helpful if they can be listened to at the same time.

There are a lot of challenges and issues that we all as a country have to hurdle along the way. Let's celebrate our country's progress while remaining vigilant - expecting a better performing government to lay the groundwork - helping businesses, professionals, and the workforce thrive.
