    I comment once i like a post on a web page or if We have something to add on the conversation. Usually it is a result on the passion communicated in the put up I browsed. And after this short article Audi A6 3.0 TDI quattro Consumption and Costs | Cars Show. I used to be essentially moved enough to submit a leave a responsea response I do have a couple of questions for you if it’s okay. Could it be just me or does it look like like a few in the remarks look as if they are written by brain dead folks? And, if you are writing on additional places, I’d like to keep up with you. Would you create a list the complete urls of your general public pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

  2. BSP has tightened its examination of banks. Several banks in Central Luzon were downgraded for BSP supervision and take over. These banks were previously highly rated rural banks and thrift banks. Sayang at ang daming kliyente na maliliit ang mga bangko na ito. Baka siguro nais ng BSP na maghari uli ang BDO at iba pang malalaking bangko. Hindi malayo na dahil dito magsara na lang ang mga bangko ng bayan lalo na yung nagsisilbi sa sakahan at agraryo sa Nueva Ecija. Kawawa ang mga maliliit na mangungutang.

  3. Rural banks are important in countryside development. But then, if they are not performing well, I guess the logical move is for the BSP and PDIC to step in.
