    'The city government, in a bid to have an impressive city,' Hahahaha ! The last time AC was 'impressive', was when it was covered in a foot of ash from Pinatubo. 😄

    https://www.foxnews.com/us/us-navy-sub-commander-demoted-after-hiring-prostitutes-in-philippines?fbclid=IwAR3G1KG_bQPlS3Rk84NthYmRNmCc6qNMzvhD_6A9orJYp-CP0NUcboNsQI4 A Navy submarine commander was disciplined and demoted last summer after admitting to paying for female prostitutes while stationed in the Philippines. Capt. Travis Zettel lost the confidence to command the attack submarine USS Bremerton and was relieved of duty back in August following the investigation. The investigation by the U.S. Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) was launched following a sailor’s tip to the Department of Defense Inspector General’s hotline, saying Zettel told him he “requested/ordered ten girls to arrive at the hotel,” according to documents obtained by the Kitsap Sun. The sailor later saw the commander with around 10 “provocatively dressed females outside the front door of the hotel.” Another sailor also apparently enjoyed the company of women and was seen with three “local females holding onto his arm as he was wandering around” and greeting his fellow sailors. The incident occurred in March 2018, while being ported in Subic Bay in the Philippines. The criminal investigation began in May. NCIS agents reportedly confronted Zettel with the allegations. He admitted “culpability in the payment of female accompaniment,” according to the documents released to the publication. The second accused sailor was interviewed, but he “did not participate in prostitution.” He wasn’t disciplined. Zettel became the commander of Bremerton, the Navy’s oldest submarine before its recent decommission, in August 2016. “Becoming the 15th commanding officer of the now 35-year-old ‘American classic’ is a proud moment for me and my family,” Zettel said in 2016 after taking control of the sub. Following the investigation, he was reassigned to the staff of Naval Base Kitsap-Bangor-based Submarine Squadron 19, Navy officials told the Kitsap Sun.

    MANILA – Ride-hailing firm Grab Philippines said Monday it updated its policy to include a P50 fee for cancellations and no-shows to curb “unreasonable" behavior. The penalty will apply to passengers who terminate a ride 5 minutes after getting a driver and for passengers who fail to show up at the pick-up points within 5 minutes upon arrival of their GrabCar booking. The window is shorter at 3 minutes for GrabShare. Cancellation fees are added to the next booking fee if the passenger is paying in cash, Grab said. Passenger accounts will be temporarily suspended for 24 hours if they cancel a ride twice in an hour, thrice in a day or 5 times within a week, the ride-hailing company said. Drivers will also be penalized for cancelling passenger bookings without proper reason and for being selective of passenger destinations, the statement said. Drivers may also be “locked out of the platform” if they excessively ignore or cancel requests. Passengers automatically get 30 rewards points if a driver cancels a ride, while a “tipping feature” was also rolled out allowing passengers to reward their drivers. “Our intention in implementing this new policy is to create a better ride-hailing ecosystem, where both passengers and drivers practice the responsible use of the Grab platform,” Grab president Brian Cu said. However, the P50 cancellation and no-show fees will not be imposed if the driver is canceled within 5 minutes, if the driver is not moving towards the pick-up point, if the driver takes 15 minutes longer than the estimated time of arrival, and if the driver indicates he has arrived when he has not, Grab said. The platform said it was willing to refund wrongly charged fees within 48 hours. Grab has notified the Land Transportation and Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) about it’s new cancellation policy. source
