My friend Dennis Uy is an avid runner. On one of his jaunts to Sante Fe Ridge (pictured below), he used a Garmin Fenix 3 wrist watch to collect trail data.

Several sources have published that the Indian Covid variant B1617 appears to affect children more:

So using Philippine Department of Health data, let us see which regions have comparatively more children infected than the national average. So first, lets show the national trends over the last 9 months. We see the children account for around 10–14% of weekly cases:


Our goal is to visualize ProjectBASS collected bandwidth data into a Map. With the brangay level areas color coded for median bandwidth. The output looks like this:

Red is low bandwidth area. Green is High bandwidth areas, uncolored areas are those with no ProjectBASS measures yet.

First we create a new QGIS project. We add in PhilGIS barangay shapefile and also use Open StreetMaps/ Stamen Terrain. Then we import the CSV file named: BASSSubmissionsOutput.csv.

This BASSSubmissionsOutput.csv is processed from Tableau using the ProjectBASS dataset. It is further processed by Tableau Prep to clean the data. Here is a screenshot of the data structure:


Pasay City Mayor Emi Calixto-Rubiano said on April 18, 2021 that “they have seen a drop in coronavirus disease (COVID-19) cases from three digits down to two digits in the past three weeks due to the city’s contact tracing efforts.”

https://mb.com.ph/2021/04/18/pasay-cites-aggressive-contact-tracing-for-continued-decline-in-covid-19-cases/

So let’s unpack the claims into two parts. First is the claim that Pasay’s cases have gone down.

“197 a day noon…pero ngayon po bumababa po kami ng 80, 70, 60”

Here, the DOH data confirms this. In the last 3 months starting from February, the case counts were 1,895, 7,244 and the MID-April figure shows much lower numbers at…


We start with the Co-INFORM risk Maps generated by PSPHP.org. The areas in Red are at the highest risk, while areas in GREEN are at the lower risk levels. Why are these areas harder hit than the rest? What can explain this?

Let us use the Dept of Health’s Data Drop to see if we can find clues to what is causing the spike. The DOH data includes the over 648,000++ covid positive cases. We hope to shed light on the recent spike in PH Covid Cases (7,999) as of today.

We select some of the Regions that were harder…


Windows Subsystem for Linux allow users to run Linux commands on a computer with a Windows operating system. Basically, WSL works as a compatibility layer for running Linux binaries in Windows 2019 systems.

The typical benefits include:

  1. Allows both Windows and Linux environments to run simultaneously.
  2. Requires less overhead resources of computer like processor, memory and storage

Which one do we use? Windows subsystem for linux? or VM with Linux installed?

discussion on quora

After installing Windows 2019, we do some preliminary steps:
a. Enable Nested virtualization on the HyperV mothernode.


So we have this tree farm up in Sual, Pangasinan, Philippines. We would like to be able to inventory our more mature trees. We would love to know that each tree is alive and also be able to connect the data back to our database.

I’m thinking of using RFID technology for this. There are now RFIDs in nail form factor. Given a serial number (in our case an RFID #), we should be able to lookup the specific tree and read the RFID /serial number and then match it to our database:

  1. GPS location
  2. Species name
  3. Date Planted
  4. Person…

Storage Migration Service overview | Microsoft Docs

Why we want to do this:
End of life for Windows 2008 and older. Better to upgrade in toto by MIGRATING. Storage Migration Server will do just that!

Warning! Migration does not work with DOMAIN controllers!

Storage Migration Service is designed to help by doing the following:

  • Inventory multiple servers and their data
  • Rapidly transfer files, file shares, and security configuration from the source servers
  • Optionally take over the identity of the source servers (also known as cutting over) so that users and apps don’t have to change anything to…

Here are some of the things I liked about the new Windows 2019 Server.

  1. Smaller, More efficient containers (50–80% savings)
Windows 2019 bare, fully patched

Compared to Windows 2012 fully patched:
