A Filipino inventor named Daniel Dingel invented a car that runs on water. Although, this technology existed a long time now, I haven’t seen this type of car in the market. When I was young, I have seen a anfra jeep around DOST bicutan and it says on it’s body, this is runned by water. I forgot the exact word by the message is clear that vehicle is runned by water. So, I wonder why this project is now defunct or invisible?
Above is a interview with Mr. Dingel which states why his project is still a project and not a multimillion invention that would help the Philippines.
Philippines is the World Top Importer of Rice
The Philippine is considered as an agricultural country but it is the world top importer of rice. It is a bit ironic. Add to the insult is that years back we are the one who teaches our neighboring country about agriculture but today we are the one who is importing agricultural product from them.
Currently the country is importing 2.2 million tons of rice every year (source:goldsea.com). By doing so, the government is shouldering the burden of paying high and selling low. They pay high in the world market and sell it low so our kababayan can afford it.
Due to some alleged hording and unscrupulous pricing the government is now investigating the distributors of NFA rice and will charged accordingly.
