Until now a fight between two of the greatest boxers in world remains a dream, and it would remain so if Floyd Mayweather fails to confirm the proposed fight with Manny Pacquiao on May 2. And Pacquiao is more than ready to take him on and all he’s waiting for is Mayweather’s “YES.”

Pacquiao’s camp has set a deadline this month for Mayweather’s confirmation. According to the World Champ they need to know soon because if Mayweather won’t fight they can choose another opponent. 
The terms Mayweather laid out have been met by Pacquiao and his promoters at Top Rank. For the May 2 fight, Mayweather will get 60 percent of the proceeds. In addition, Pacquiao’s camp has already approved the drug testing protocol and the gloves that they will use.

Obviously, it’s all in Mayweather’s hands now. There are still a few days to go before the month ends. If he fails to confirm there’s no doubt that boxing fans will assume that he’s scared. What do you think?

Nursing Board Examiner Sentenced to 7 Years in Jail

January 13, 2015
Remember the leakage that happened in the 2006 nursing licensure examinations? It has been proven and the perpetrator has been sentenced. Yesterday, former Board of Nursing of the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) member Virginia Diodola-Madeja was sentenced to seven years in prison by the anti-graft court’s Special Fifth Division.

Under the decision of Presiding Justice Amparo Cabotaje-Tang and Associate Justices Roland Jurado and Alexander Gesmundo, Madeja was found guilty of infringing Section 3(k) of the Anti-Graft and Corrupt Practices Act (Republic Act 3019) and Section 15 of the PRC Modernization Act of 2000 (RA 8981).

According to the records and evidences presented in court, Madeja was a first time examiner and she prepared 500 questions for the data banking system for the 2006 board exams.

It was after the 2006 nursing board exams that a complaint regarding a leakage of the test questions was filed in Baguio. Investigations of the fact-finding committee showed that the leak did not come from the data bank but led to those that were made by Madeja.

Aside from 7 years imprisonment, Madeja was barred from holding public office and ordered to pay P100,000.
