RUPTURED BRAIN ANEURYSM: Living with a Broken Brain

RUPTURED BRAIN ANEURYSM: Living with a Broken Brain. A unique insight into the fragility of the extraordinary human brain. A true st...

Monday, December 5, 2011


Since the video came out on YouTube last week, Rhian Ramos has been silent. No word from her on the issue that must have rattled her to the core, whether what Mo Twister revealed was true or not.
Finally, we get to finally hear her side. Rhian Ramos made a statement on ’24 Oras’.
Rhian Ramos was with her lawyer, Atty. Lorna Kapunan, and her mother Clara, when GMA News interviewed her

No official statement was issued yet regarding the abortion allegation by Mo Twister although Rhian addressed the issue indirectly, tearfully and briefly.
“I think more than what the people have seen, I’ve been hurt over a longer period of time unnecessarily and I think undeserved. "

"I just hope to be able to put an end to that so that hopefully I could move on,”- Rhian Ramos very short statement.
Rhian Ramos was cut short by her lawyer Atty. Lorna Kapunan. Saying that she hopes everybody would move on and even the media should move on. 

They will file a case against Mo because he violated Republic Act 9262 or Anti-Violence Act Against Women and Their Children Act of 2004. 

Interestingly, Atty. Kapunan was Hayden Kho’s lawyer who she defended  against Katrina Halili during their sex video scandal case. (The case was dismissed eventually.)
Rhian Ramos will seek temporary protective order against Mo Twister according to her lawyer.

In an interview with “24 Oras,” Rhian’s lawyer, Lorna Kapunan, described Mo’s behavior as “not normal” and “dysfunctional.”

Rhian Ramos to file criminal case against Mo Twister!
Rhian’s appeal for a temporary protection order will legally shield her from Mo’s alleged harassment. The complaint will also be based on Republic Act 9262 of 2004 or the Anti-Violence Against Women and Their Children Act. The lawyer said that the protection order was not about distinguishing the truth from lies, but putting a stop to the harassment.

Rhian Ramos mom and her whole family is supporting her all the way!

Meanwhile Rhian’s mother Clara Ramos revealed that despite the devastating controversy, Rhian is “okay and functioning properly.” She thanked Rhian’s supporters for giving her strength.

“We really appreciate you guys, all the fans, supporters of Rhian, nakakataba ng puso na nandiyan kayo to be at her side, and giving her love. Thank you so much,” Clara said.

Rhian’s Mom also shared the irritation they’re feeling due to the abortion allegations.

“Siyempre, malungkot siya ano? Talagang it’s devastating. I’m glad that she’s able to be okay and function properly naman,” sabi niya.

Nagpahayag din si Mrs. Ramos ng matinding inis sa mga pahayag na isa sa dahilan ng umano’y abortion ni Rhian ay ang pressure ng kanyang pamilya.

“Natural lang na nakakainis na pati kami nadaramay. Merong mga bagay na sinasabi na pabigla-bigla…

“Of course, in this family, we’re all in this together.”
Rhia Ramos signed the complaint affidavit that will be filed by her lawyer to the proper court allegedly tomorrow DECEMBER 6, 2011.  Natatawa ako sa iba na nag papahayag na naka file na as in past tense na, Press Conference lang po yun kanina hindi naman korte ang mga reporters.

Rhian did not deny her alleged abortion but then again, I don’t think people would believe her anyway if she did.

Rhian Ramos declined to answer questions on the issue from the media. But her lawyer said that will be done in due time. An official statement will come out very soon.
Their priority at the moment is to file a case against Mo twister, Mohan Gumatay in real life.
According to Atty. Kapunan, Mo Twister violated Republic Act 9262, or Anti-Violence Against Women and Their Children Act of 2004. She did not elaborate.
Kapunan also revealed that Rhian Ramos will file for a protection order against Mo Twister to try to stop him from further issuing damaging statements to the public.
Their evidence? The statements Mo has already released since the scandal broke out, and probably even the ones before that – the tweets about abortion that he started posting two weeks back.
“The court will determine if it will issue a permanent protection order,” said Rhian’s lawyer.

Rhian Ramos’ lawyer Atty. Kapunan:
“She only wishes the best for Mo, she is also hoping that Mo would also wish that for her… Only the best because they had good times together.”

“This has nothing to do with truth or lies, no? That is not what the protection order is about. What this is all about is harassment. He is harassing Rhian. Mo is harassing for all this utterances in public.”

Rhian Ramos' lawyer Atty. Lorna Kapunan claimed that the said protection order that they will ask from the Muntinlupa Regional Trial Court tomorrow, Tuesday, December 6, 2011.

Normally it will still go through the fiscal office.

The court may issue a permanent protection order that will prohibit Mo from committing “any psychological or emotional violence.”
GMA Network, where Rhian is a contract artist, has also indicated that it will file a separate case against the radio DJ-TV host for malicious and false imputations against the network in his video posted last Friday afternoon on YouTube.

Interesting fact : Rhian’s mom is annoyed that their family is being put in a bad light because they’ve supposedly pressured Rhian to get an abortion, again, no denial on the abortion.
As for the details mentioned in Mo’s video, Rhian will make another statement soon, said her lawyer.    - SOURCE:GMA NEWS 24 ORAS


Talentadong Pinoy ka ba? Try your luck as UK opens its doors to migrant workers who are exceptionally talented.

United Kingdom - The government had announced the way that it will encourage exceptionally talented leaders in the fields of science, humanities, engineering and the arts to come to the UK.

The new Tier 1 (Exceptional talent) category opened last  August 9,2011. This new category facilitated not only those who had already been recognized but also those with the potential to be recognized as leaders in their respective fields. 
There was a limit of 1,000 places in the first year of operation. There was 500 places available last 9 August and 30 November and a further 500 places available from the 1 December to 31 March 2012. The number of places will be reviewed at the end of March 2012.

Tier 1 (Exceptional talent) will be overseen by world-renowned 'competent bodies', which will advise the UK Border Agency on these 'exceptionally talented' migrants to ensure that they are the brightest and best in their field:

  • The Royal Society, a fellowship of the world's most eminent scientists, will be able to nominate up to 300 places.
  • Arts Council England, the national development agency for the arts, will also be able to nominate up to 300 places.
  • The Royal Academy of Engineering, Britain’s national academy for engineering, will have up to 200 places to nominate.
  • The British Academy, the national academy for the humanities and social sciences will be able to nominate up to 200 places.

Immigration Minister Damian Green said: 'The UK is a global leader in science, humanities and engineering and we are a cultural centre for the arts: we will continue to welcome those who have the most to offer and contribute to our society and economy. 'Our new exceptional talent route, available for up to 1,000 applicants, will ensure that we continue to attract the brightest into the UK and keep the UK a global leader. 'This comes at a time of major reform of the immigration system to bring net migration back down to the tens of thousands, tackle abuses and make sure that the immigration system meets the needs of the country.'

Migrants seeking entry to the UK under Tier 1 (Exceptional talent) will not need to be sponsored by an employer, but will need to be recommended by one of the competent bodies. Alan Davey, Chief Executive of Arts Council England, said 'We welcome the launch of this special visa scheme, which will enable the very best artists of international standing to live and work in the UK. 'The international exchange of artists enriches their art, and I’m sure audiences will welcome the opportunity to experience the finest artistic talent from across the world.'

It will be for each competent body to select those who will qualify for recommendation, and we have also published the criteria for their endorsement. The President of the British Academy, Sir Adam Roberts, said 'The Humanities and Social Sciences are flourishing in the UK and attract many excellent scholars from overseas. 'The British Academy is ready to play its part in identifying those outstanding scholars for whom Tier 1 is the appropriate visa category.'

While the government has allotted a number of places to each body, it will be open to the bodies to transfer additional places to those with more demand if this becomes necessary.

The President of the Royal Society, Sir Paul Nurse, said 'The UK is a global leader in science because we can attract the best minds from around the world to work with our own home-grown talent. 'The government has listened to the science community’s concerns about jeopardising our international leadership by restricting the immigration of scientists and the Royal Society will play its part in ensuring that the very best international talent can continue to come to the UK to work.'

Those admitted under Tier 1 (Exceptional talent) category will initially be granted permission to stay for 3 years and 4 months. They will then be able to extend their stay for a further 2 years, and settlement may be available after 5 years’ residence in the UK.

President of the Royal Academy of Engineering, Sir John Parker FREng, said: 'In order to safeguard the UK's future competitiveness, we must ensure that it remains an attractive destination for world class engineers. He adds 'I am confident that this new visa route will help to encourage global excellence to come to the UK.'
