  1. Not according to this. " DRE (digital rectal exam) is less effective than the PSA blood test in finding prostate cancer, but it can sometimes find cancers in men with normal PSA levels. For this reason, it may be included as a part of prostate cancer screening."
  2. The latest word on prostate cancer is that it's generally very slow-growing and the treatment is sometimes worse than the disease. Sorry I don't have time to look up citations. I'll be relying on the Prostate Specific Antibodies blood test rather than Finger In the Ass, and even with elevated PSA level I'll be wary of treatment.
  3. That's an excellent link. Thank you. Here's something to go with it, to explain the PEIS earthquake scale used at your link. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PHIVOLCS_Earthquake_Intensity_Scale Bohol is my choice for best place to live.
  4. When all the jobs are automated, who will have money to buy anything?
  5. When we visited Puerta Princesa (Palawan) a few years back it was very clean. A tour guide told us there was a fine for the first offense of littering and certain jail time for the second offense. So law enforcement has worked in at least one place.

    One of the episodes of Anthony Bourdain's "Parts Unknown" TV show took place in the Philippines. He gave a good review to Jollibee. I wonder how much they paid him.
  7. Corona? I can't imagine wanting Corona when San Miguel is available. IMHO San Miguel is the equal of Corona and Heineken.

    Probably any really touristy area has what you want. Sometimes it will all be in one location, such as Park Mall in Cebu. In Tagbilaran, and Dauis Panglao Island (Bohol province) it's all there but you must do a little research and travel a few miles.
  9. And look like a rapist? (According to my wife.)
  10. Most construction is hollow blocks. Poured concrete and rebar is upscale and rather rare. My wife won't go with me when I visit an ukay ukay store. It's beneath her. Welcome to the forum. You have chosen well.
  11. Two years ago I met a fellow Kano who knew enough to not drink the tap water but he was using tap water for tooth brushing and in his WaterPik! Of course he was not feeling well. I set him straight. Do you need a similar course correction?
  12. Replying to DaveHoundDriver's post a few pages back when he was opining about the importance of getting there first: In Fencing (sword fighting) getting there first is referred to as "establishing your right of way." It's essential to winning.
  13. Visited the gun store near the older bridge between Tagbilaran and Dauis (in Bohol Province) last February. Asked specifically about the income tax return requirement for buying firearms. They scoffed at that, saying the only requirements are (1) being a citizen and (2) getting a clearance from the local police chief. Different strokes for different folks, I suppose. The ONLY weapons they actually had for sale were pistols of a single brand manufactured in the Philippines.
  14. A large ripe mango would hurt and possibly cause injury, but a coconut falling would be worse. Anyone know how many people are killed each year by falling coconuts?
