Book: Global Frequency

"Global Frequency"

Global Frequency is a worldwide rescue organization created to deal with any crisis too big, too strange or too dangerous to handle by more conventional means. Founded and funded by the enigmatic Miranda Zero, this mysterious agency is made up of 1,001 agents, all experts in fields as diverse as bio-weapons engineering to parkour running. Members are equipped with special mobile phones that keeps them in constant communications with Miranda Zero’s cunning right-hand woman Aleph, the nexus of the worldwide operation.

From a middle-aged linguist, a 16-year-old computer geek, a retired detective to an ace test-pilot, Global Frequency agents are the best at what they do and they are humanity’s last, best chance for survival.

I started writing this about Global Frequency a couple of weeks ago, but I couldn’t find the words. I found them now.

Over the weekend, a storm came to the Philippines. Prior to arriving, the storm was hailed as one of the worst to come to the Philippines. Having experienced some pretty bad storms, everyone started preparing. Especially here in Metro Manila where people never stop making the same mistakes. All we keep doing is to prepare for the worst that can happen–we never work on trying to prevent said things from happening.

But the storm never hit the northern part of the Philippines. Metro Manila was spared.

I wish I could say the same for the rest of the country.

Hello. You’re on the Global Frequency.

An organization made up of volunteers, Global Frequency sends people out to high-risk situations to help out when no one else can do the job. Most of these people are not trained professionals. These volunteers do what they do for the Global Frequency because they are good at it–and because they believe in doing good.

It’s a genius idea. And although it’s been out for a number of years now, the idea continues to be relevent. Especially now.

Hello. You’re on the Global Frequency.

Super Typhoon Haiyan has caused a lot of damage in the Pacific region of the world. Not just here in the Philippines, but also in Micronesia, Palau, and Vietnam.

If there is anything you can do to help: maybe join a volunteer force, or donate; please do. It’s times like these where every help is much needed and appreciated.

Mashable has a great list of ways to help. So does Time.

If you’re in the Philippines, the big television networks are also organizing ways wherein you can contribute however much you want or are able to.

Help.

You’re on the Global Frequency.
