I sent that message to both the Pag-IBIG official email address as well as the Mindanao Railway Project Office (MRPO). The MRPO responded first.





From the looks of it, a lot of the balls are in Pag-IBIG's court. After I forwarded them the MRPO's email, I finally got the following result

Duterte affirms 2016 arbitral win by PH vs. China before UN
By David Tristan Yumol, CNN Philippines

https://cnnphilippines.com/news/2020/9/23/Duterte-affirms-2016-arbitral-win-by-PH-vs.-China-before-UN--.html

Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, September 23) – President Rodrigo Duterte affirmed before the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) the Philippines' win against China in a 2016 ruling over the South China Sea.

"The Philippines affirms that commitment in the South China Sea in accordance with UNCLOS and the 2016 Arbitral Award. The Award is now part of international law, beyond compromise and beyond the reach of passing governments to dilute, diminish or abandon," said Duterte in his pre-recorded speech aired during the general debate of the 75th United Nations General Assembly on Wednesday (Philippine time).

Duterte, who appeared for the first time in the UNGA in his four-year presidency, said the Philippines rejects any attempts to undermine the said arbitral ruling and assured the country's adherence to the UN Charter and the 1982 Manila Declaration on the Peaceful Settlement of International Disputes.

The President also thanked nations who supported the 2016 ruling by the Permanent Court of Arbitration (PCA) favoring the Philippines over China's sweeping claims in the South China Sea.

Duterte to discuss human rights, territorial row in first UN General Assembly appearance
By Melissa Luz Lopez, CNN Philippines

Published Sep 21, 2020 4:25:52 PM

https://cnnphilippines.com/news/2020/9/21/Duterte-human-rights-territorial-row-UN-General-Assembly.html

Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, September 21) — President Rodrigo Duterte will address the United Nations General Assembly this week, where he is expected to give his take on hot issues like the war on drugs and the Philippines' territorial row with China.

Chief of Presidential Protocol Robert Borje said Monday that Duterte will be joining the global body's 75th general debate this week, which will be held virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This is the President's first time to face the UNGA during his term, as he refused previous opportunities to fly to New York.

"President Duterte will articulate principled positions of the Philippines on a wide range of issues. I do not want to preempt the President but these are the ones of key importance to the country," Borje added. "That would be the global response to the coronavirus pandemic, peace and security — including terrorism and geopolitical developments in the Asia Pacific, sustainable development and climate change, the rule of law, justice and human rights, including the situation of migrants workers and refugees, as well as peacekeeping and United Nations reforms."

Funny, you should make a thread on the Home Development Mutual Fund.

Speaking as a former employee. ;)

I actually have a helpful presentation that I made for one of my graduate classes.

http://www.mediafire.com/file/9j90a1cya2naszv/file

I took out some of the out of date information since the file is a couple years old now, but most of the pertinent information is there.

Feel free to copy+paste the relevant slides for the thread.

Thanks Girder.

Principal reason I've dug into the Pag-IBIG fund is that there are a fair number of homeowners, who are Pag-IBIG members, who affected by the Mindanao Railway. They reach out to the Mindanao Railway Project Office (MRPO) as advised, but the MRPO doesn't have all the answers because a lot of them are in Pag-IBIG's camp and the organization seems to have been caught flat footed by the pace of the Administration's progress.

Here are examples of affected properties.

http://defenseph.net/drp/index.php?topic=7091.0

I've passed up the following questions up a number of chains waiting on answers. Would you have your own lines of communication?

Quote
Could the amortization for these affected properties paused in light of the impending acquisition? This would give the homeowner the funds necessary to process the documentary requirements enumerated by the Notice of Taking.

Can the affected Pag-IBIG homeowners be allowed to apply for another Pag-IBIG loan to allow them to acquire another property to replace the Pag-IBIG funded property that is being taken from them?

For the additional Pag-IBIG loan mentioned above -- which is really only required because Mindanao Railway project is taking the property -- can the age-related Pag-IBIG requirements be waived?

Should the compensation from the DOTr be given directly to Pag-IBIG, or will it be sent to the homeowner first, and the homeowner is required to remit the proceeds to Pag-IBIG?

Is there a program specifically for affected Pag-IBIG homeowners to provide an option to relocate to a similar property subject to restructuring of the original housing loan?

If only a portion of the property is taken up by the right-of-way, will Pag-IBIGI consider this a total loss of the home and how will this affect the mortgage?

Space / Re: SpaceX Starship SN8

SN8:

Starship SN8 continues to undergo processing inside the Mid Bay at the Production Site.

With the stacking operations completed some time ago, installation of the aero covers on the aft of the vehicle has become the focus.

Such work has only started, and will culminate with the installation of the four aero surfaces – the aft fins on the fuselage and the canards on the nose cone. The two sections will likely undergo their stacking operations once both elements have been rolled to the launch site.

The rollout will come soon after SN7.1 has completed testing, allowing for preparations for the test flight that will include prooftesting, at least one Static Fire test with three Raptors, and then the flight to 60,000 feet.

< Edited >

Should SN8’s test flight result in a “crater” – as Elon put it – corrective actions will be employed into SN9, which is already into the business end of its stacking operations.

With processing taking place next to SN8 in the Mid Bay, SN9 will mimic SN8’s design – similar to how SN5 and SN6 closely resembled each other.

NIST Cloud Computing Program - NCCP

https://www.nist.gov/programs-projects/nist-cloud-computing-program-nccp

DESCRIPTION

Cloud computing is a model for enabling convenient, on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources (e.g., networks, servers, storage, applications, and services) that can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction. This cloud model promotes availability and is composed of five essential characteristics (On-demand self-service, Broad network access, Resource pooling, Rapid elasticity, Measured Service); three service models (Cloud Software as a Service (SaaS), Cloud Platform as a Service (PaaS), Cloud Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)); and, four deployment models (Private cloud, Community cloud, Public cloud, Hybrid cloud). Key enabling technologies include: (1) fast wide-area networks, (2) powerful, inexpensive server computers, and (3) high-performance virtualization for commodity hardware.

The Cloud Computing model offers the promise of massive cost savings combined with increased IT agility. It is considered critical that government and industry begin adoption of this technology in response to difficult economic constraints. However, cloud computing technology challenges many traditional approaches to datacenter and enterprise application design and management. Cloud computing is currently being used; however, security, interoperability, and portability are cited as major barriers to broader adoption. 

The long term goal is to provide thought leadership and guidance around the cloud computing paradigm to catalyze its use within industry and government. NIST aims to shorten the adoption cycle, which will enable near-term cost savings and increased ability to quickly create and deploy enterprise applications. NIST aims to foster cloud computing systems and practices that support interoperability, portability, and security requirements that are appropriate and achievable for important usage scenarios.
