History: • Sumerians were considered the most progressive group of people. • Some part of Sumer is the present Iraq. Ancient Sumeria / Sumer 4000 BC
Sumerians were skilled traders, farmers and craftsmen. • invented the wheel (potter’s wheel), • cuneiform writing system • first astronomers, • arithmetic, • military formations and introduced the basic divisions between infantry, cavalry and archers • first true city states, • intensive agriculture and irrigation.
In the Middle East, one of the problems is the availability of potable water. Sumerians also encountered this problem. • In order to solve this problem, they tried to come up with alternative drinking liquid particularly derived from fermented cereal grains. • Thus, ale was created which is today’s beer. • Some Sumerians produced more ale not only for themselves, but also for others who could not produce their own and this led to the establishment of the forerunner of today’s bar, the tavern.
Taverns – were places serving beverage particularly “ale” and places for social gatherings. • Derived from the Latin term taberna and the Greek taverna, whose original meaning was a shed or workshop. • Taverns have existed in England as early as the 13th century and were often kept by women usually known as ale-wives. • By the 19th century in England, the word tavern had evolved, from tavern to public house (pub).
Empire Era 3200 – AD 476 • As a proof that taverns continued to exist after the time of Sumerians, a papyrus was discovered from ancient Egypt which contained some warnings that says “do not get drunk in taverns . . . For fear that people repeat words which may have gone out of your mouth without you being aware of having uttered them.” • An indication that early people already knows the effects of alcohol to the body and mind.
Ancient Greece 1100 BC • As time passed by, taverns continued to exist and develops. One of the reasons was due to the increase in the number of people who travelled. • Greeks travel for religion, sports or games and to conquer lands. • During the time of the Greeks, places for the rich and the poor existed. • Establishments serving foods and beverages includes Lesches – serving fine food and drinks for the rich, and Taverns – places for the poor.

American Taverns • Taverns in America were introduced by the British. • The distinction between the British and the American taverns was the inclusion of accommodation and entertainment. • The entertainments in American taverns were in the forms of gambling and prostitution. • The Philippine bars are patterned to American bars or taverns. • 1643 – the beginning of American Beverage Service Industry. • Coles Ordinary – the 1st American tavern. • Taverns served as a place or rendezvous for revolutionaries before the war.
In Massachusetts 1656, a town without a tavern was penalized, taverns were built near the church. • The reason why taverns were built near the church is because during this time there were still no heaters in buildings that could minimize the cold temperature during winter. So after the worship service, people went to taverns to warm their body by drinking alcoholic beverage at the same time the leaders of community discussed matters of the community.

Aside from these, the Land Transportation Office shall confiscate and suspend for 12 months the license of a non-professional driver for the first conviction. On second conviction the license would be perpetually revoked. • For professional drivers, their license would be confiscated and perpetually revoked for the first conviction, which shall be the basis to disqualify the driver from “being granted any kind of driver’s license thereafter.” • Refusal to comply with mandatory tests for field sobriety and drug tests will result in confiscation and automatic revocation of license, aside from “other penalties provided and/or other pertinent laws.”
The owner and/or operator of the offending vehicle, in case of vehicles for hire, will be just as “directly and principally (held) liable together with the offender for the fine and the award against the offender for civil damages.” • However, the operator of the vehicles for rent may be exculpated if he “has exercised extraordinary diligence in the selection and supervision of his drivers in general and the offending driver in particular.” • “Section 7 now mandates the mandatory alcohol and chemical testing of drivers involved in motor vehicular accidents, so that will now be a staple,” Valte told a news briefing in Malacanang, adding that a breathalyzer would be used to verify alcohol or drug consumption.
