Work for the Local Court

For many years, good typists have shared their craft with courthouses around the country. To transcribe what goes on during a trial, court reporters use a special typewriter to write what the parties say. They use a sort of shorthand language so they can type at the same speed which people are speaking.

Transcribe Audio Files

Allow Only Fully Vaccinated in Malls, Restaurants, and Others Establishments in NCR After ECQ

With the recent surge in COVID-19 cases in Metro Manila, where the transmission rate has exceeded the average countrywide rate of COVID-19 infections, Presidential Adviser for Entrepreneurship and Go Negosyo founder Joey Concepcion said that it is time for both the government and the private sector to consider implementing stronger measures in the National Capital Region (NCR) to effectively mitigate the spread of COVID-19 in the region.

“We are pushing for establishments in NCR, such as malls, restaurants, and others, to allow only fully vaccinated individuals so we can create safer bubbles. For example, dining areas with fully vaccinated restaurant crew serving fully vaccinated dine-in customers. This is of course upon having enough fully vaccinated residents in a certain city in Metro Manila,” Concepcion said.

He cited data from the Philippine General Hospital which found 187 individuals out of the total of 265 COVID-19 patients admitted as of August 15 were unvaccinated. The San Lazaro Hospital, meanwhile, reported that 82 percent of the total severe and critical cases of COVID-19 were also unvaccinated individuals.

“Implementing stronger measures during the ECQ in NCR, even if it is extended, will preserve the benefits of the lockdown. It will prevent us from compromising what we have already achieved so far, and what we can achieve in the future. We’ll finally reap the benefits of our sacrifices,” he said.

Concepcion added that the Philippines must benchmark against similar measures in other countries. In Jakarta, malls reopened at 25 percent capacity, but only to fully vaccinated individuals. Singapore, which has vaccinated 75 percent of its population, is allowing the fully vaccinated to resume activities that require the removal of masks and even gather in groups of no more than five people.

“We have seen in France under President Macron’s leadership that restricting the mobility of unvaccinated individuals is not only effective in preventing the spread of the virus, but also in encouraging people to get vaccinated,” he said.

Concepcion said that limiting the mobility of unvaccinated individuals, especially in Metro Manila, is not impossible given the aggressive inoculation rollouts already in effect during the ECQ.

“It will not be imposed unreasonably. That’s why there is a milestone in terms of the percentage of vaccinated individuals. We are aware that we need to vaccinate more people before we drastically do this. That is why we are aggressively rolling out our vaccination program in the country especially here in NCR even during the current lockdown,” Concepcion said.

“In the end, these measures will also encourage people to do their civic duty and take the vaccines. There may be more variants to come, but we have to realize that vaccination is the only key. The private sector wants to see an end to these lockdowns. A ‘close open’ type of economy is something we cannot afford to have.”

3 Tips for Minimizing the Impact of Traffic Tickets on Your CDL

For most drivers getting a traffic ticket is an expensive annoyance, but for commercial vehicle drivers, it can have a major impact on their ability to earn a living. If you drive a commercial vehicle, it is important to minimize the chance that your career could be sidetracked by traffic violations by practicing safe driving and mitigating the impact of traffic violations.

1. Hire an Attorney

A traffic ticket isn’t just a minor setback for a commercial driver. You may lose time you could be spending earning money dealing with your ticket in court. You could lose your job, or have difficulty securing contracts and it may be difficult to find a new job as a driver. Plus you may face significant fines and other penalties. For these reasons, it may be a good idea to hire a CDL traffic attorney to assist you if you get a ticket.

2. Practice Good Driving Habits in Your Personal Vehicle

It isn’t just tickets you get while driving your commercial vehicle that could jeopardize your professional driving career. Traffic violations you commit in your personal vehicle can harm the status of your CDL. These violations may also be taken into account by potential employers. 

3. Don’t Make a Habit of Getting Tickets

Don’t think you will be able to simply pay the fine on minor violations and walk away. In many states the consequences of getting multiple tickets within a specific time frame compound. If you get enough tickets on your record, you can even lose your CDL entirely. 

Practicing safe driving habits is always a good idea. However, the pressure to make money can tempt some drivers into speeding or committing other violations. Because traffic violations can severely impact or even end your driving career, it is a good idea to take steps to mitigate the potential impact.
