The controversial sexy singer explained that she is a pro-RH bill advocate because she believes that it will uphold women’s health and will provide sex education. Mocha reiterates that she is an advocate of sex education during her interview with ABS-CBN‘s Tony Velasquez, host of The Rundown.

During the ANC interview, Mocha even encouraged boxer, Manny Pacquiao, to switch sides and join her in promoting the RH Bill. Pacquiao has openly aired his stance against the RH Bill.

Mocha earlier joined a pro-RH Bill rally last Tuesday, May 24, 2011 around the Batasang Pambansa in Quezon City.

Typhoon Chedeng Update, Satellite Images and PAGASA Weather Forecast as of 5am, May 26, 2011

Thursday, May 26th, 2011 | NEWS, Philippines, Weather with 2 Comments

According to the latest PAGASA weather forecast issued at 5 am today, May 26, 2011, the eye of Bagyong Chedeng or Typhoon Chedeng is spotted at 270 km east Northeast of Virac, Catanduanes.

Tropical storm Chedeng (international codename: Songda) is moving northwest at 15 kph with maximum sustained winds of 160 kph near the center and gustiness of up to 195 kph, based on PAGASA satellite and surface data.

The Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC) said that Typhoon Chedeng has intensified over the past 12 hours in the highly favorable environment of the Philippine Sea. The Hawaii-based JTWC  is a joint U.S. Navy-Air Force task force that is responsible for issuing tropical cyclone warnings for all branches of the US Department of Defense and other US government agencies.

PAGASA forecast Typhoon Chedeng to make a landfall in the area of Aurora and Isabela by Friday afternoon. However, JTWC contradicts PAGASA‘s forecast by saying that Tropical storm Chedeng will miss Luzon and remain in the sea area.

Below are some of the images of Typhoon Chedeng.
