The Supreme Court launched its first-ever mobile application called "Supreme Court of the Philippines" to make judicial information such as issuance and names of justices easily accessible to the public.

Chief Justice Lucas Bersamin introduced this app to the public on July 19. It is now available only on Google Play Store for now. The iOS version is yet to be released.

The new app has four features—the Judiciary Memorabilia Hall, the Court Locator, the Lawyers' List and the Supreme Court Directory.

Some features, however, have not yet been made available. Court spokesman Brian Hosaka said that users have to unlock some features through scanning QR codes installed at the Judiciary Memorabilia Hall in the High Court's old building.

Hosaka hopes the public will be encouraged to visit the memorabilia hall every now and then.

The app was released after the high court's official website was revamped.

The app features an organized electronic library or e-library that contains all the signed decisions and resolutions since 1996.

It also a repository for copies of judicial documents such as old and new laws, executive issuance, treaties and other relevant references such as election cases and manuals.

More features will be added in the future, Hosaka said, including updated information on its list of lawyers.

Philippines Telecoms, Mobile and Broadband Market 2019 Upcoming Trends, Challenges and Industry Key Players – PLDT, Smart Communications, Globe Telecom, Liberty Telecom, Bayantel & Forecast to 2023 - Market Reports

Posted: 19 Jul 2019 02:16 AM PDT

WiseGuyReports.com "Philippines – Telecoms, Mobile and Broadband – Statistics and Analyses" report has been added to its Research Database.

Scope of the Report:

Mobile infrastructure is improving in Philippines

Philippines prepares to launch 5G services

A substantial amount of capital continues to be invested in building telecommunications infrastructure throughout the Philippines.

Telecommunications investment in the Philippines will continue to see increasing emphasis on supporting high speed broadband access. The bulk of the fixed services are in urban areas. The fixed line market in the Philippines remains underdeveloped and fixed line penetration continues to show stagnant growth. A major reason for this is due to the dominance of the mobile segment and the rapid expansion of the mobile broadband segment.

Over the past five to ten years and particularly more recently over the past two years there has been significant new data centre builds and additions to existing capacity as new providers enter the South East Asian data centre market. More and more people are getting online and using cloud computing services, which is driving demand for data centre services.

During the last few years, the major operators have also been forced to cope with the pressures of slowing growth in traditional areas of the market and rising investment needs for new growth areas such as consumer broadband – both fixed line and mobile. In particular, there has been good progress in the rollout of optical fibre infrastructure. PDLT announced plans to accelerate a network modernisation plan that will see it switching to fibre over the following two years.

Fixed broadband penetration in the Philippines remains relatively low mainly due to a limited number of fixed lines and the dominance of the mobile platform, which has in turn driven the mobile broadband market.

Despite declining prices in both fixed and mobile broadband, this type of service is still not affordable for the majority of the population. Operators have been pushing hard with competitive low entry-level packages, but the market continues to struggle.

The DICT has staged a pilot run of the National Fiber Backbone (NFB). It will be operated by the DICT, which will also maintain the related facilities and provide last mile connectivity in the Philippines.

Over the next five years to 2024 strong growth is expected to continue from this very small base as both major fixed broadband operators, PLDT and Globe Telecom continue with their rollouts.

Smart Communications have teamed up with Google to deploy additional Wi-Fi hubs across the country as part of a drive to provide free connections nationwide.

There has been a major push by market leader PLDT to offer fibre-based services; Globe has been trying to match the PLDT push where it can. PDLT is also deploying hybrid technology, such as G.fast, under a wider three-year program.

Mobile subscriber growth is expected to be relatively low over the next five years to 2024 due to a highly mature and highly competitive market. The market will be driven by the uptake of both 4G and eventually 5G services as operators adopt these faster services.

Mobile ARPU levels have been on a downward trend for a long time in the Philippines as competition in the mobile industry has intensified. The operators continue to engage in aggressive price competition in an effort to grab market share.

The Philippines has seen a very rapid increase in mobile broadband penetration over the past five years driven by a rising level of wireless broadband users. Strong growth is predicted over the next five years to 2024, however at a slower and declining rate as the market further matures.

The Philippines is well on its way to launching 5G services. Smart Communications activated its first 5G cell sites in Makati and is testing the platform and developing solutions such as autonomous vehicles. Globe Telecom has revealed plans to launch its 5G service in partnership with Huawei Technologies later in 2019.

We Just Experienced the Hottest June on Record and It's Part of a Larger, Troubling Trend - The Weather Channel

Posted: 18 Jul 2019 09:15 AM PDT

We Just had the Warmest June on Record
  • Four separate analyses, including from NOAA and NASA, found Earth's warmest June on record was in 2019.
  • Earth is on track for one of its warmest years dating to 1880 based on trends from the first six months of 2019.
  • Among areas most above average in June were Europe, Siberia, Arctic Canada and Alaska.
  • This was despite a relatively mild June in parts of the U.S.

June 2019 was Earth's record warmest June in 140 years of temperature records, according to four separate analyses, continuing a warming trend that has 2019 on pace for one of its warmest years dating to 1880.

NOAA's June global state of the climate report released Thursday found global land and ocean temperatures were 0.95 degrees Celsius above the 20th-century average.

That may not sound impressive, but in the realm of global temperatures, this warm anomaly made it the planet's warmest June in records dating to 1880, slightly outpacing the previous record from 2016.

Ultimately, what's most important is not whether a given month is a fraction of a degree warmer or colder; rather, it's the overall trend, which continues its upward climb since the late 1970s.

Monthly global temperature departures from 1951-1980 average over the globe, in degrees Celsius, according to NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies GISTEMP analysis.

(NASA-GISS)

June 2019 marked the 414th consecutive month and 43rd straight June that global temperatures have been above average in NOAA's database. NOAA noted nine of the 10 warmest Junes have occurred this decade.

It was also the 16th straight month landing in the top five warmest respective month in NASA's database, a streak that began in March 2018.

Since 2015, 50 of the last 54 months have at least tied a top five warmest respective month, according to NASA-GISS. From June 2015 through August 2016, 11 separate months set warm records for the month.

Rankings of monthly global temperatures, according to the NASA-GISS database since 2015. Circled '1s' highlight months setting a record high temperature for the month. Ties among months during those four-plus years are indicated by the same ranking given to each month.

(Data: NASA-GISS; Table: Infogram)

Other expert analyses came to the same conclusion.

NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies also found June 2019 global average temperatures across all land and ocean surfaces were warmest of any previous June in their records also dating to 1880.

A second analysis from the Japan Meteorological Agency also found June 2019 was the globe's warmest June, nudging it above both 2016 and 2015. The JMA analysis found the planet's five warmest Junes have all been within the past five years.

Earlier in the month, Europe's Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S) also found June to have topped their previous record warm June in 2016.

Boosted by a late-month heat wave that shattered June records in eight countries and set a new all-time record in France, Europe June temperatures crushed their previous record warm June in 1999 by almost 1 degree Celsius, C3S reported.

Berkeley Earth lead scientist Robert Rohde estimated 41 countries may have set their record warmest June, including Bangladesh, Hungary, Iraq, Nicaragua, the Philippines and Turkey.

Some of the most impressive temperature departures from average in June were analyzed by NOAA over northern Siberia, over 7 degrees Celsius above average.

Europe's Copernicus Earth Observation Programme observed what they said was unprecedented wildfire activity north of the Arctic Circle from June into early July, emitting an estimated 50 megatons of carbon dioxide.

By contrast, June was relatively average in most of the Lower 48 states.

2019: Warmest Year?

NOAA's report said 2019 was tied for the second warmest first half of any year with 2017, behind only 2016.

Parts of Alaska, northwest Canada, Mexico, South America, southern Africa, eastern Asia, Australia and New Zealand were among the record warm areas over the first half of 2019, according to NOAA.

(NOAA-NCEI)

Given each month this year has been at least the fourth warmest respective month, what are the odds 2019 will end up as the hottest year on record?

NASA-GISS director Gavin Schmidt tweeted it's a near certainty 2019 will be among the top five warmest years, and likely it will be warmer than last year, with a small chance it could surpass 2016.

Berkeley Earth's Robert Rohde tweeted the chance 2019 will finish runner-up to 2016 is over 70%.

In his monthly update, climate scientist James Hansen said 2019 will probably finish second to 2016, due to a fading El Niño.

(MORE: El Niño Expected to Weaken; Could Lead to More Active Hurricane Season)

A record-tying strong El Niño lasted through roughly the first half of 2016, giving a boost to global temperatures. Hansen noted the impact on the planet's temperatures typically lags changes in El Niño by 4.5 months.
