Cool dude

Last week, I posted a photo of one of the more-than-life-size cut-out figures being used in the Ateneo de Manila University to prepare people for the new one-way traffic scheme. That exercise to ease traffic inside the campus begins today, so here is another one:
 cut-out sign with Fr Jett Villarin SJ Meet the new university president, Fr. Jose Ramon T. Villarin SJ, whom everyone calls by his nickname, Jett. He took over from the previous president, Fr. Ben Nebres, just two years ago, in 2011. Fr. Jett is a physicist with a doctorate in Atmospheric Sciences from Georgia Tech, and he just turned 53 last January 30.  

For the curious, his sign translates as "Follow the advice of parents and teachers. And the new traffic scheme." Today, we find out how well it works.

Georgia Tech, huh?

Well, if the parents and teachers are giving driving advice, I'm not so sure about following their advice. As I've grown older, I've found that age and/or education doesn't always guarantee that a person drives in a sensible fashion. Some of the old folks around here are truly dangerous on the road! Like their kids! :-)

Hopefully the new traffic scheme will transition smoothly - that sign certainly jumps out! (I like that "traffic scheme" needs no translation:)

They take care and seem to be very attention with the students!

I hope it works as it sounds like a good idea.
