The said sum­mit is aimed to de­sign, im­ple­ment, and eval­u­ate crime pre­ven­tion ini­tia­tives re­spon­sive to the needs/prob­lems re­gard­ing the safety and pro­tec­tion of the stu­dents in the city. It will also seek to en­dow ex­plicit ac­tion plans in rein­vent­ing new strat­egy on how to pro­mote the safety and pro­tec­tion of the stu­dents as well as to al­low the stu­dents to min­gle and in­ter­act with their fel­low par­tic­i­pants, de­velop ca­ma­raderie among them, and to give them a chance to share their ideas and in­puts to help im­prove the plans and pro­grams for the pro­mo­tion of their wel­fare and se­cu­rity.

It is like­wise geared towards the em­pow­er­ment of stu­dents to be­come in­stru­ments in shar­ing to their fel­low stu­dents the in­for­ma­tion gath­ered dur­ing the sum­mit and at the same time en­hance part­ner­ship be­tween the stu­dents, the Baguio City Po­lice Of­fice and the Philip­pine Drug En­force­ment Agency, other na­tional line agen­cies, and the com­mu­nity in crime pre­ven­tion and its pre­emp­tion and pos­si­ble so­lu­tion and other con­cerns. The said sum­mit will be held at the BENECO Mul­ti­pur­pose Hall lo­cated along South Drive, Baguio City. prove any­thing. Don't you worry peo­ple - the "Land­slide" will be back in no time. That makes me re­ally ex­cited and we can only hope that he comes back stronger and tougher.

Martin Nguyen, on the other hand, de­serves to be the new king of that ONE Cham­pi­onship MMA di­vi­sion. Many will re­mem­ber the night for the vi­o­lent knock­out and how Nguyen made his­tory at the ex­pense of our idol. Hope­fully, the im­age of Nguyen right by his friend's side af­ter the stop­page also stands out, as it shows the true mean­ing of honor and re­spect among mar­tial artists and pro­fes­sion­als.

And the los­ing breed? It isn't Ed­uard for sure. Nei­ther is it Team Lakay. It's all those in­stant ‘ex­perts’ and ‘an­a­lysts’ who talk too much, type words too much and quickly make their com­ments known on so­cial me­dia think­ing they'd even last one sec­ond with any fighter in the oc­tagon. "Ag­talna kayo man sao kayo nga sao nga!"
