LOOK: Top 10 Professions Prone to Infidelity


A survey carried out by “infidelity dating site” Victoria Milan has revealed the top 10 professions prone to cheating.

LOOK: Top 10 Professions Prone to Infidelity
Which professions spawn the most cheaters?
Based on a poll involving 5,000 female cheaters, the results showed that bankers, brokers and analysts are most likely to have extramarital relationships. This comes as no surprise if you have seen the film The Wolf of Wall Street.

In addition, the survey showed that 65% of the polled women claimed they have cheated at work. About 85% seemed to have learned the lesson the hard way and discouraged sleeping with a colleague.

When asked about the most positive aspect about having an affair in the workplace, most of the participants said that it makes their job more “fun, exciting, and easier”. On the other hand, 70% of the polled cheaters believe that the downside of this set-up is that they still have to work with the person even if the relationship already went down the drain.

Sigurd Vedal, founder and chief executive of Victoria Milan, said that the survey shows that even if there’s a lot of risk involved in one’s career, people are willing to take the plunge as having an affair “makes life more pleasant”.

“At the same time, the majority of cheaters would steer clear of mixing work with pleasure - not because it damages their career, but because they are at risk of being found out, or will feel uncomfortable,” Vedal added.

Here are 10 professions that spawn the most cheaters:

1. Financial (Bankers, brokers, analysts, etc.)

2. Aviation (Pilots, flight attendants, flight pursers, etc.)

3. Healthcare (Doctors, nurses, nursing assistants, etc.)

4. Business (CEOs, managers, secretaries, etc.)

5. Sports (Athletes, instructors, representatives, etc.)

6. Arts (Musicians, models, actors, photographers, etc.)

7. Nightlife Industry (DJs, dancers, waiters, etc.)

8. Communication (Journalists, public relations, communicators, etc.)

9. Legal (Lawyers, secretaries, prosecutors, judges, etc.)

10. Other sectors

Petition Asks Facebook to Suspend ‘Mocha Uson Blog’


MANILA, Philippines - Netizen Paul Quilet has started an online to petition to have Mocha Uson’s Facebook page suspended through According to Quilet, the sexy performer’s social network page spreads false information about important issues in the country and has become instrumental in widening the gap between President Rodrigo Duterte’s supporters and his critics.

Petition Asks Facebook to Suspend ‘Mocha Uson Blog’

In his petition, Quilet wrote: “Mocha Uson, a Filipino entertainer-turned-Duterte die-hard supporter uses her Facebook page to spread fictitious and false information about pressing issues in the Philippines, from the role the USAID plays in the country to malicious and false news concerning other government officials, eliciting unwarranted hate from the public. The said Facebook page widens the rift between those who support the current administration and those who are critical of it.”

The petition, which needs to be signed by 25,000 supporters, has already amassed over 20,000 signatures since it was filed on Sunday, October 23.

After learning about the petition, Uson urged her followers to follow the Mocha Girls page just in case her account gets suspended.

“May mga nagsusumbong po sa akin may nag petition daw para i-suspend ang page natin. Ano daw po masasabi ko.Eto lang po- Let’s pray for them. The Lord said to pray and bless for your enemies. Then let's obey po,” Uson wrote in her post.

With over 4 million followers, the Facebook page of Mocha Uson, a die-hard supporter of Duterte, became an instrumental tool during the firebrand leader’s campaign period. Because of her page’s influence, Uson was tapped by the Bureau of Customs (BOC) to disseminate their reform agenda through her blog. Although she was not officially appointed as the BOC’s social media consultant, she gave the government agency some tips on how to improve their social media activities.

Socialist group warns Duterte of Rasputins in his cabinet


MANILA, Philippines - Socialist group Bukluran ng Manggagawang Pilipino (BMP) expressed grave concern that several members of the Cabinet are actively working against the fulfillment of the economic reforms vowed by President Rodrigo Duterte himself.

Socialist group warns Duterte of Rasputins in his cabinet

Days ago, the government’s so-called economic managers ganged-up and rejected the P125 national wage increase proposal, that according to them would push inflation rates to 9.7 percent and spike unemployment by 1.2 percent.

The group identified Secretaries Ramon Lopez, Ernesto Pernia, Benjamin Diokno and Silvestre Bello of the trade, socioeconomic planning, budget, and labor departments respectively as ‘obstacles’ to the realization of the president’s wishes that the BMP said “could have made positive impacts in the lives of millions of ordinary folks.”

“The alter egos of the president in the economic cluster are clearly on the opposite side of their superior and the heavily taxed ordinary folks who pay for their salaries. The secretaries have been consistently active in countering measures that the president has explicitly declared. More importantly, they are not only defying the president’s orders but betraying the trust between him and the nation,” the group’s spokesperson, Attorney Luke Espiritu said.

Among the economic reforms that the secretaries have opposed despite the president’s open support, according to Espiritu is the abolition of all forms of contractual employment, the establishment of a national wage board, a substantial wage increase for the public and private sector as well as the ban on land conversion.

He also accused the cabinet officials of “poisoning the mind” of the president into withdrawing his promises and to fear mongering.

“If they are not fulfilling the wishes of the president or that of the taxpayers, then whose interests are they working for, Espiritu inquired.

BMP fears that other measures that will substantially raise the quality of life of millions living below the poverty line will receive the similar fate as the wage increase proposal.

He likewise reminded the officials that, “It is the overwhelming support of working class that catapulted Duterte to power for they believed that he can affect change they seek. This government must serve the interests of the many and not of the elite”.

“With the way things are going and not unless they are removed from their posts immediately”, Espiritu warned that the recently issued Executive Order No. 5, adopting the “Ambisyon 2040”, a long-term development plan aimed at tripling Filipinos’ per capita income to $11,000 in 24 years’ time “will remain to be a bureaucratic pipedream”.

“If the President really sides with the overburdened workers then he must on guard at all times from his subordinates and terminate them at the smallest infraction they commit,” Espiritu asserted.

The group, last week demanded the president to fire trade Secretary Lopez for his efforts to block the abolition of all forms of contractualization.
