Another analysis of the Mayweather-Pacquiao megafight
The boxers, and their remarkable records, initially built up what is to be this era's Fight of the Century in the persons of Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather, Jr. The third "Fight of the Century" in the boxing world, labeled as Battle for Greatness in the Philippines, ended up as another unanimous decision victory for Floyd Mayweather, Jr. One judge scored 118-110, and the remaining two scored 116-112, all in favor of the betting favorite.

Alternative Parties in the Philippines: National Socialist
The period traversing the years 1907 to 1941 featured our first experience of nationwide politics, with the country having 13 elections in all. Although conducted under auspices of American administration, it is without doubt that this period began forming the Filipino statesmen (or politicians for that matter) whose valuable service our nation still remembers until today. However, with the many political parties these people brought forth during the period, only the Nacionalista Party dominated the scene. Also, only the Nacionalista Party survived from this era and is continuing to operate until today. What were almost neglected in the mainstream political history of our country during this period were the political parties formed in opposition to the gargantuan Nacionalista, but failed to survive to see America grant independence to her only colony in Asia. With this in the fore, introducing these parties, their formation, their members, platforms, successes, failures and their eventual dissolutions are being aimed in this series.

While I was before lambasted for considering website statistics as history, is statistics in itself not part of history? Also, is this not a blog that also has its own history? History, as the second oldest profession in the world, encompasses all that has happened in the past. Well, we did take note the time that Gangnam Style broke through 1 billion and 2 billion views, respectively, right? Let us make our minds open. Again, I thank you for understanding the purpose of documenting these website statistics.

I, the author, am very humbled for this warm welcome given to the restoration of this emerging history blog - The Young Filipino Historian. Also, I fervently believe that this is only the beginning the many more achievements to come for your rising history blog. Small success may this be to many, but take to mind that you are always to be entrusted with small things first.

Finally, may God provide you with many more blessings!
