WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Philippine Embassy in Washington D.C. and the Consulate General in New York are in touch with concerned United States authorities in connection with the investigation of the reported exploitation of undocumented Filipinos working in various 7-Eleven convenience stores in New York and Virginia. Acting on instructions of Ambassador Jose L. Cuisia, Jr. Labor Attache Luzviminda Padilla and Consul General Mario De Leon contacted the Department of Homeland Security, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Nassau County District Attorney’s Office and the Eastern District Court of New York to inquire on the status of the case. “We also want to check the condition of the Filipino nationals involved in order to determine the kind of assistance that could be extended to them,” Ambassador Cuisia said in a statement issued from Kingston, Jamaica, where he presented his credentials as Manila’s non-resident ambassador to the Caribbean island-state. Ambassador Cuisia said consular and legal assistance will be extended to the Filipino nationals involved in the case, including Filipino citizen Ramon Nanas, 49, of Great River, New York, who was among nine persons indicted by authorities in connection with the case.

PHL, U.S. to hold exercises near disputed reef  MANILA, June 20, 2013 (AFP) – The United States and the Philippines are to hold joint naval maneuvers in the South China Sea next week between the main island of Luzon and a reef claimed by both China and Manila, the Filipino navy said Thursday. The exercises taking place from June 27 to July 2 by the two allies are to be held about 67 miles east of Scarborough Shoal, navy spokesman LieutenantCommander Gregory Fabic told AFP. Chinese government vessels are still believed to be patrolling the waters around the shoal after a lengthy stand-off last year with the Philippines, which ended with a Filipino retreat. “This was planned way back in 2010. Whatever happened since then was purely coincidental,” Fabic

said when asked if holding the exercises there this year were a way for the Philippines to reassert its sovereignty over the shoal. The maneuvers would be held over 4,767 square miles of waters, he added. Chinese embassy spokesmen in Manila could not be reached for comment Thursday. Beijing claims it has sovereign rights over nearly all of the South China Sea, even waters far away from its main landmass and approaching the coasts of Southeast Asian countries. The Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia, Brunei and Taiwan also claim parts of the sea, and the area has for decades been regarded as a potential trigger for See DISPUTED REEF, page 12

MANILA, June 19 (Mabuhay) – Agencies handling education services begun at the Department of Education (DepEd) Wednesday the drafting of the implementing rules and regulations (IRR) of the Enhanced Basic Education Act signed by the President last May. The program, which adds two more years of senior high school among other enhancements, aims to improve the quality of education to keep up with international standards. “According to the law we have 90 days (from June 8) to finish this,” said DepEd Undersecretary Alberto Muyot, drafting committee chair, adding that the various subcommittees need to consult other stakeholders as well. The committee will also be conducting public consultations, “We will go around Luzon, Visayas, Mindanao, and NCR (National Capital Region) sometime August and we will try to incorporate inputs from everyone involved,” Muyot said. Education Secretary Armin Luistro reiterated that the K-12 propoSee EDUCATION SECTOR, page 12

Labor official denies running sex ring in Jordan MANILA, June 19 (Mabuhay) – A Philippine official accused of allegedly running a prostitution ring using runaway overseas Filipino workers in Jordan vehemently denied the allegations against him. Mario Antonio, the officer-in-charge of the Philippine Overseas Labor Office (POLO), believes that the alleged ‘sex-for-fly” scheme is the work of recruitment agencies engaged in illegal activities. “Siguro po yan po ay bunga po ng mga nasasagasaan natin na mga ahensiya na pinipilit na kinukuha ang mga workers natin doon na humihingi ng tulong para sila ay tugunan,” said Antonio. Antonio said these illegal agencies are out to destroy people like him in Jordan. “Sila po sigurado ang gumagawa ng ganyang mga balita sapagkat nasasagasaan po ang kanilang modus operandi pagpapapunta po ng mga trafficked OFWs sa Jordan na hanggang sa ngayon po ay ilegal po ang pagpunta,” he said.

Akbayan Rep. Walden Bello, the chairman of the House Committee on Overseas Workers Affairs, revealed Antonio’s name as one of the officials who allegedly operates a prostitution ring in Jordan. “Hindi pa po ako nakakausap ni Congressman Bello pero naiintindihan ko naman po yung kanyang hangarin. Syempre po vigilante po yan, kapag may natanggap yan na ganyang balita syempre gusto po nyang imbistigahan,” he said. Aside from Antonio, Bello also accused a foreign affairs department employee in Syria who was allegedly caught having sex with a runaway Filipina at the embassy compound, and another Philippine official in Kuwait said to be pimping workers under the embassy’s custody. On Tuesday, Bello said that even the government of Jordan has asked the Philippine government to recall its official in Jordan. “Pinayuhan lang po ang ating ambassador. Kasama po yan sa pagtatanggol natin sa mga OFWs kasi nga

po minsan nakipagpulong tayo sa Ministry of Interior. Binanggit po natin na bakit pinapayagan yung mga workers na pumasok sa Jordan eh meron tayong existing ban. Una po itinanggi nila na di nila natatanggap yung ban na yan pero ipinakita ko po yung kasulatan ng ating embhaada, yung note verbale, di na po sila kumibo,” he said. Antonio also clarified that in all his 30 years of government service, no case has been filed against him. He added that many recruitment agencies were not happy with how he managed POLO. “Dahil di sila nakakadiskarte sa kanilang nais para sa mga workers natin,” he said. Over 70 distressed OFWs are still with the POLO, he said. Many of them fled their employers due to unpaid salaries. “Ako naman po ay handang humarap para po pabulaanan yung mga akusasyong ibinabato laban po sa akin,” he said. (MNS)

Sen. Cayetano pushes for full investigation of OFWs exploitation MANILA, June 19 (Mabuhay) – Senator Pia Cayetano on Wednesday said the government should leave no stone unturned in its investigation of the reported sexual abuse of distressed women overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) in Philippine overseas offices. At the same time, the senator called on concerned agencies to hold the alleged perpetrators accountable for the so-called “sex-for-repatriation” scheme. “If in fact the allegation of ‘sex for repatriation’ is true, then this is one of the worst cases of exploitation that have befallen our OFW women,” said Cayetano, chairperson of the Senate committee on youth, women and family relations. “When those who are tasked to protect our women are the very ones who perpetuate such a ghastly and disturb-

ing act, then these predators should be charged, jailed and banned from holding public office,” he added. Cayetano said it is incumbent upon concerned government agencies, primarily Department of Foreign Affairs and Department of Labor and Employment, to take immediate and decisive action while observing due process of law. “They should unmask the identities of these alleged perpetrators within their ranks, as well as their accomplices. They should also urge all victims to come forward and provide them assistance so that they would be able to file charges in court.” She said the abuses would be mitigated if government could find ways to hasten the repatriation of OFWs staying in government shelters abroad.

“The government must step up its efforts to hasten the repatriation of distressed OFWs in order to shield them from hardship and further abuse,” Cayetano said. It was Akbayan Rep. Walden Bello who exposed the Sen. Pia Cayetano alleged exploitation of the OFWs by some embassy officials, particularly in Syria. (MNS)

PHL defends move not to sell ‘blood ivory’ MANILA, June 19 (Mabuhay) – The Protected Areas and Wildlife Bureau (PAWB) defended the government’s move not to sell more than five tons of confiscated blood ivory. In a statement, PAWB director Theresa Mundita Lim said the planned destruction of an estimated P420 million worth of elephant tusks is in compliance with the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES). The move aims to “deter possible loss from theft or untoward situations.” Lim said the convention does not allow selling the ivory tusks since this is considered money laundering.

Appendix I lists about 1,200 species threatened with extinction, including elephants. Their commercial trade, especially if specimens come from animals caught in the wild, is illegal. “This is why we cannot simply sell them and donate the money elsewhere or use them for school buildings and chairs and the like,” Lim said. She said the PAWB is even spending P2 million annually to secure the ivory tusks, which were confiscated beginning 1996. She said the government will just set aside at least 30 carefully selected pieces of elephant tusks which will be preserved and used for educational and research purposes.

Makati bans plastic bags BY MYNARDO MACARAIG

MANILA, June 20, 2013 (AFP) – The Philippines financial capital banned disposable plastic shopping bags and styrofoam food containers Thursday, as part of escalating efforts across the nation’s capital to curb rubbish blamed for deadly flooding. After a widespread publicity campaign leading up to the ban, Makati city environment protection officers began handing out fines of 5,000 pesos ($115) to shops and

supermarkets caught distributing the bags. Rowena Rosario, who sells hot meals at a sidewalk stall, often packed in plastic bags, said the city ordinance was making life difficult. “Most of my orders are take-out. Now, I have to use paper bags but what if the food has a lot of sauce? No one is going to bring plates here,” she said glumly. There is strong resistance to the ban, particularly amongst the poor, said Xenelit

“The Philippines has, in fact, been lauded for this move, with the disposal to be witnessed by representatives from the international community committed to enforcement against illegal trade of wild fauna and flora,” Lim added. The government will pulverize the tusks via road rollers on June 21 at the Ninoy Aquino Parks and Wildlife in Quezon City. Among those expected to witness the destruction of the seized elephant tusks are Director Bonaventure Ebayi of the Nairobi-based Lusaka Agreement Task Force, US Embassy Deputy Chief of Mission Brian Goldbeck, Atty. Brian Christy of the National Geographic, and members of foreign and local media.(MNS)oa

Camarce, one of the ban enforcers who spoke to AFP after inspecting a public market. “A lot of people, especially those sidewalk vendors, they are still using it. But the ones really complaining are the customers, those buying fish and chicken,” she said. While Makati, one of 17 cities or districts that make up Metro Manila, still allows food to be wrapped in plastic, it has banned the bags that shops and restaurants traditionally issue for free. Styrofoam food containers and plastic cups are also banned. Consumers are given the option of paper alternatives or not using any bags, with supermarkets encouraging shoppers to bring their own. “We have issued a lot of tickets,” Makati environment officer, Danny Villas, told AFP. Tow-truck crew member John Regalio shrugged with resignation as he bought juice drinks poured into paper cups instead of inside sealed small plastic bags, the preferred local way of serving beverages to customers on the go.

“The plastic bags held more juice. And you didn’t have to worry about spilling anything. But what can you do when it is the law?” he said. Makati is home to many of the country’s foreign embassies, biggest corporations and banks, swankiest shopping malls and about 2,900 restaurants. Although its official population is just over 600,000, this swells to about 3.7 million in the daytime when thousands of commuters travel to the area to work, city officials said. Makati became the ninth out of the 17 areas to issue the plastics ban, meaning 6.7 million of Metro Manila’s population of 13 million people are covered by the restrictions. Prexy Macana, project officer of Makati’s environmental services department, said cutting down on plastic was vital to stop the clogging of the city’s waterways, which is widely blamed for contributing to floods. “During our bi-monthly wastewater clean-ups, we found most of the garbage is plastics,” she said.

BI streamlines operations to boost tourism MANILA, June 19 (Mabuhay) – After the recent introduction of new arrival and departure stamps for international travelers to put an end to counterfeit stamps, the Bureau of Immigration (BI) will launch next week the six-month, long-stay tourist visa for foreigners intending to stay longer in the country. These twin moves aimed at boosting tourism are in keeping with the policy reforms reached by the BI after a series of meetings with the Departments of Tourism and Foreign Affairs. BI Commissioner Ricardo David Jr. said the Long Stay Visitor Visa Extension (LSVVE) was launched to spur tourist arrivals in the country by giving foreigners the privilege to prolong their stay here without the need to frequent the BI office. The current practice is to grant foreign tourists a maximum stay of two months every time they apply for visa extension. “Through this long stay visa,” David said, “we expect lesser crowding in our offices

due to the decreased volume of visa extension applicants.” With its security and tracking features that cannot be copied, the new visa sticker will prevent the proliferation of fake visa extension stamps resulting in victimizing many foreigners as well as revenue shortfall for the government. David reported applications for tourist visa extension rose by six percent, representing a 16-percent increase in income from visa extension fees collected from international travelers during the first five months of the year. This translates to a five-month collection of P342.8 million, which is P47.4 million higher than last year’s take of P295.4 million – a combined collection posted only by the bureau’s main building in Manila and its extension offices in Makati and Pasay. It was also gathered that since David assumed the BI top post in March 2011, visa applications and revenues have risen by 48 percent and, subsequently, the BI was cited by the Civil Service Commission (CSC) for cutting bureaucratic red tape.

Cobonpue, et al to join team giving NAIA a facelift MANILA, June 19 (Mabuhay) – World-famous designer Kenneth Cobonpue, architect Royal Pineda and designer Budji Layug are joining the group working on the rehabilitation of Ninoy Aquino International Airport’s (NAIA). The trio, whose design plan for the Manila airport was shelved in 2011, will be teaming up with Leandro V. Locsin & Associates, the architecture firm originally appointed for the project. “We met with the Cabinet secretaries and they said they wanted to bring it (the design) back,” Cobonpue said. His group will focus on the overhaul of NAIA Terminal 1, particularly the greeters’ area, Transportation Secretary Joseph Emilio Abaya said. “It’s about time na gawan sila (the families and friends of travelers) ng komportable,

Pag-IBIG members can now pay thru GCASH MANILA, June 19 (Mabuhay) – Now, members of the Home Development Mutual Fund can make their payments through mobile commerce service GCASH. The Pag-IBIG Fund signed a memorandum of agreement with Globe Telecom’s subsidiary G-Xchange Inc. for the new payment facility for their twelve million members. Members no longer have to go to the Pag-IBIG office or an accredited payment center for their monthly mandatory savings and housing loans, since they can just use GCASH. “We are excited to offer this to OFWs, kasambahays, self-employed such as lawyers and doctors, so they can’t complain that it is inconvenient to go to Pag-IBIG branches or banks. It is very secure and convenient. Globe is regulated by BSP to ensure the protection of the customers in mobile commerce,” Pag-IBIG Fund president and chief executive officer Darlene Berberabe said in a press conference in Makati. Berberabe said this will make payments easier especially for members in the low income bracket such as househelpers or their employers. GXI president Paolo Baltao said PagIBIG members can make secure payments without leaving their homes or going to the payment centers. To get GCASH, a subscriber should dial *143# and select GCASH and then choose “Register” using their Globe or TM SIMs. To convert cash to GCASH wallets, a subscriber can use the online bank transfer www.globe.com.ph/gash, mobile banking with BPI by dialing *119# after enrollment and Unionbank, Bancnet ATMS with minimal fees or any of the GCASH outlets free of service charge. To remit Pag-IBIG payments, members can pay either P100 as monthly mandatory savings or P500 modified Pag-IBIG II by dialing *143#, selecting GCASH and choosing Pay Bills. For housing loan, include the payment reference number. Berberabe said the payments will be posted on their ledgers the next day. Asked about possible network glitches that may affect the payments, Baltao said,

“Once you get a confirmation that the amount has been deducted and the payment has been confirmed. Don’t worry, the payment will be sent to Pag-IBIG.” Paying contributions and housing loans via GCASH is free of charge up to December 18, 2013. A minimal service fee of P5 will be charged per Pag-IBIG transaction via GCASH.(MNS)

maayos at desenteng lugar. Ito yung tinatawag na greeters’ area,” Abaya said. He said he hopes the two groups, despite going head to head against each other in 2011 for the project, can work together for the improvement of the country’s main international gateway. The government has set aside P2.8 billion for the rehabilitation of NAIA Terminal 1 and expects the works to be finished in two years. “Yung NAIA i-maximize pa natin, dahil sinasabi nga ni [Tourism] Secretary [Ramon] Jimenez [Jr.] ang in-city airport like NAIA is an asset for tourism and for business and the economy,” Abaya said. “So we’ll max this out and hopefully we’ll come up with a replacement to NAIA which is as convenient as the NAIA now,” he continued.

Sotto wants congressional oversight committee cut by 50 percent MANILA, June 19 (Mabuhay) – Resigned Senate Majority Leader Vicente Sotto III has expressed willingness to push the rationalization of the congressional oversight committees in the 16th Congress. �Right in the first caucus of the new Senate, I will most probably call for rationalization. It will perhaps cut oversight committees by 50 percent,� Sotto said in a Senate media interview. Based on Senate website, there are 35 oversight committees, including 10 created through simple resolutions. The 10 oversight bodies created through resolutions including labor, climate change, procurement, suffrage, Visiting Forces Agreement, science and technology, climate change, economic affairs, intelligence fund, bases conversation and local government. Sotto said he has the right to propose to trim down the list of oversight committees which have at least P10 million annual budget each. �I have the right to do so (to propose for rationalization) because I the only senator who has no oversight committee chairmanship,� Sotto said. Resigned Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile was the first to bring to the public the issues of big number of oversight committees early this year when some senators questioned Enrile’s alleged unequal distribution of cash gifts. Enrile has said even some oversight committees have bigger budget compared to the regular committees in the Senate. The issue of ‘cash gifts’ forced Enrile to step down as Senate president last June 5 or two days before the Senate adjourned sine die.

Mar Roxas, Aranetas biggest donors for Team PNoy; Gatchalian patriarch for UNA MANILA, June 20 (Mabuhay) – The country’s influential and powerful families poured in the most money for the two major political parties during the latest midterm elections, a cursory look at their expenditure reports filed with the Commission on Elections (Comelec) shows. The Liberal Party received P183.2 million in contributions. The United Nationalist Alliance meanwhile got P72,750,025. For the administration-led Liberal Party, its president-on-leave Manuel “Mar� Roxas II donated P5.7 million. Now the government’s Interior Secretary, Roxas also belongs to the affluent Araneta clan. His mother Judy Araneta-Roxas donated P20 million to the LP. She is also the vice chairman of the Araneta Group of Companies which has businesses in food, leisure and property development. Meanwhile, Mar’s uncle Jorge Araneta, president and chief executive officer of the Araneta Group, shelled out P4 million for the administration party. Mar’s aunt Maria Fores chipped in P10 million, while cousin Jorge Fores, also one of the Araneta Group’s vice presidents, gave P4 million. Another clan member, Atty. Manuel R. Roxas, the grandson of the late former Philippine president Manuel A. Roxas, donated P3 million. In total, Mar’s family donated P47.7 million, or almost 26 percent of LP’s total contributions. Mar Roxas was a presidential bet during the 2010 elections before he gave way to Benigno Aquino III, who was swept to the presidential race after his mother’s death. As for the opposition party UNA, William Gatchalian, known as the “plastic king� for his various businesses in the local plastic industry, donated P20 million in cash, or 27 percent of the contributions received by the coalition. Gatchalian is also the patriarch of the Gatchalian political family in Valenzuela City. His sons Sherwin, Rex and Weslie are mayor, congressman and incoming Alay Buhay party-list representative, respectively.

Family affair Politics seems to be a family affair, at least according to the contributions reports of some senators-elect. For instance, surprise front runner Grace Poe’s mother and her late father’s company were the biggest contributors to her campaign. According to Poe’s SOCE, her mother, actress Susan Roces (real name Jesusa Poe), contributed P17,390,271.71 in cash to her campaign, or about 14 percent of the P123,605,341.27 total campaign contributions she received. Poe is the daughter of Roces and the late film star Fernando Poe Jr., more popularly known as FPJ. FPJ Productions, meanwhile, contributed P12,701,955.56 in cash and in kind – or 10 percent – to Grace Poe’s campaign kitty. Her total expenses were at P123,448,994.86. On the other hand, another senator-elect, Bam Aquino, spent P124,327,987.81 while his total contributions received were P125,493,000.00. His prominent donors were his relatives – his father Paul Aquino, youngest brother of the late Sen. Benigno “Ninoy� Aquino Jr., who donated P10.258 million, and his uncle, former Senator Agapito “Butz� Aquino who contributed P10 million. The Comelec plans to put a cap on contributions since these could be used as an income-generating scheme every election, Commissioner Christian Robert Lim said. According to Republic Act 7166, every candidate and treasurer of a political party shall be required to file an itemized statement of all contributions and expenditures within 30 days after Election Day. Failure to submit SOCEs is penalized with an administrative fine from P2,000 to P30,000 for the first offense, and from P2,000 to P60,000 for the second offense, depending on the position, according to Comelec Resolution No. 9476. While it is not a criminal act, failure to file SOCEs can be penalized with disqualification from holding public office, the law said. (MNS)

PHL needs $47-M more for typhoon victims  MANILA, June 20, 2013 (AFP) – The Philippines needs an extra $47 million to help more than half a million displaced people recover from a killer typhoon last year and ongoing guerrilla activity, the UN and other aid donors said Thursday. About 530,000 people urgently need permanent shelters and emergency jobs, while debris from last December’s Typhoon Bopha still has to be cleared, said David Carden of the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs. “Obviously we would need to receive (more aid) as soon as possible. There are still needs both in typhoonaffected areas and in other parts of Mindanao. I really hope these areas are not hit again,� he told reporters. A joint mission of UN OCHA and the Organization

of Islamic Cooperation visited the southern region of Mindanao this week, seven months after Bopha killed more than 1,000 people and left hundreds more missing. Other parts of Mindanao are saddled with decadesold Muslim armed rebellions which have claimed tens of thousands of lives since the 1970s. The UN-OIC mission found the region needed $91 million to fund recovery projects, more than double the $44 million that the UN and other donors were able to raise for relief under the updated aid plan, said Assistant Foreign Secretary Jesus Domingo. Carden said the aid must reach these areas immediately as the Philippines’ rainy season had begun and these areas were still vulnerable to another typhoon.

While the government has signed a ceasefire with the main Muslim rebel groups, violence between armed factions often breaks out, prompting thousands to flee their homes. The government is now in talks with the region’s main Muslim guerrilla force in a bid to seal a final peace pact before the end of President Benigno Aquino’s term in 2016. Rashid Khalikov, a director for the UN OCHA, said the displaced population in the areas of Muslim rebellion were “more focused on immediate needs for the day: shelter, food, education for their children.� Domingo also said he was concerned that those affected might be easy prey to human traffickers who lure them away by promising better-paying jobs.

Roads, common areas excluded from distribution in Hacienda Luisita – DAR MANILA, June 19 (Mabuhay) – All farm lots covered by the Supreme Court’s directive on the Hacienda Luisita case will be distributed to qualified beneficiaries. This was the assurance given by the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR), which disputed the charge from a farmers’ organization that the total area of farm lots to be distributed is 900 hectares less than what the Supreme Court ordered. “There are no missing 900 hectares as alleged by AMBALA (Alyansa ng Manggagawang Bukid sa Asyenda Luisita),� said DAR Undersecretary for Operations Joe Grageda. Grageda surmised that AMBALA may have based its computation on the Notices of Land Valuation and Acquisition (NLVAs) that were posted by DAR in all barangays

of Hacienda Luisita as required by law. The NLVAs posted so far, he said, represent only the initial landholdings valued by Land Bank covering around 3,300 hectares. “The documentation for the remaining area will be completed as soon as the segregation plans prepared by the private survey firm hired by DAR are approved by LRA (Land Registration Authority). Land Bank will then finish the valuation of the remaining lots as a matter of course, after which DAR will also post the NLVAs for these landholdings,� the DAR Undersecretary explained. Grageda further noted that the private survey firm had conducted the consolidation and subdivision survey on a total of 5,149 hectares in Hacienda Luisita. Of the area surveyed, the 500 hectares

of the converted area and 80.51 hectares covered by SCTEX were not subject to distribution based on the Supreme Court’s final decision in the Hacienda Luisita case. Furthermore, roughly 468.49 hectares were excluded from distribution to qualified beneficiaries. These areas cannot be distributed to individual beneficiaries because of their current use. Excluded from distribution are residential areas, canals, roads, firebreaks, cemetery, buffer zones, lagoons, fishponds, eroded areas, and legal easements. “While non-farm lots such as roads, firebreaks, fishponds, lagoons, and canals were excluded from distribution, they will still be covered under CARP for common use of qualified beneficiaries,� Grageda pointed out.

PHL first in Asia to destroy ivory tusks By Karl MALAKUNAS

MANILA, June 21, 2013 (AFP) – The Philippines destroyed five tons of elephant tusks on Friday in a landmark event aimed at shedding its image as one of the world’s worst hotspots for illegal African ivory trading. The backhoe of a bulldozer began crushing hundreds of tusks in a wildlife bureau carpark, as the nation became the first in Asia to eliminate its multi-milliondollar stockpile. “This act is a strong statement to the rest of the world that the Philippines will not tolerate the illegal wildlife trade,” Environment Secretary Ramon Paje said.

proved by the U.S. Trustee. Debtors receive a discharge after they complete their Chapter 13 plan. For those in foreclosure, a chapter 13 bankruptcy repayment plan may be the answer. You will still have to make your regular mortgage payments on time, but mortgage arrears can be amortized over several years, so you don’t have to catch up all at once. It is a solution for those struggling with both mortgage payments and unsecured debt like credit cards, because the bankruptcy can discharge the unsecured debt, and give you a chance to use that money to save your home, The U.S. Courts’ publication Bankruptcy Basics refers to a Chapter 13 bankruptcy as “an adjustment of debts of an individual with regular income” where the debtor works with the bankruptcy court to develop a repayment plan for the debtor to follow over the next three to five years. Upon completion of the repayment plan, the bankruptcy court will discharge any remaining eligible debts. A Chapter 13 bankruptcy filing can stall or derail foreclosure proceedings. That’s because of bankruptcy’s “automatic stay” provisions that force creditors to the sidelines while the bankruptcy court sorts things out. The lender can petition the court to allow it to continue with the foreclosure, depending on where you are in the foreclosure process, but it should buy you some time. The following, is from page 24 of the U.S. Courts’ publication Bankruptcy Basics: By virtue of the automatic stay, an individual debtor faced with a threatened foreclosure of the mortgage on his or her principal residence can prevent an immediate foreclosure by filing a chapter 13 petition. Chapter 13 then affords the debtor a right to cure defaults on long-term home mortgage debts by bringing the payments current over a reasonable period of time. The debtor is permitted to cure a default with respect to a lien on the debtor’s principal residence up until the completion of a foreclosure sale under state law. 11 U.S.C § 1322©. Clearly, you should hire a bankruptcy attorney to guide you through this complex process. That’s why the Law Offices of Paul M. Allen is here to help you.

The five tons of ivory came from a total of about 13 tons seized by customs officers since the mid 1990s, with the two biggest hauls at Manila’s seaport and international airport in 2005 and 2009. The rest of the ivory, worth many millions of dollars on the black market, was stolen over the years. Most of it went missing while being kept by the customs bureau, a notoriously corrupt organization in the Philippines, and a wildlife bureau officer is on the run after being charged with stealing about 700 kilograms. The Philippines was in March named by the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES) as one of eight nations that was failing to do enough to tackle the illegal trade in elephant ivory. The others were Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Malaysia, Vietnam, China and Thailand, and they were warned they could face international sanctions on wildlife trading if they failed to take action. The United Nations and conservation

groups have warned the demand for ivory is leading to the slaughter of thousands of African elephants each year, and could eventually lead to their extinction. The Philippines was named because of its role as a transport hub for African ivory being smuggled into countries such as China, Vietnam and Thailand, where demand has skyrocketed in recent years. The ivory is highly sought after for statues, trinkets and other items to showcase wealth. Demand is also high in the Catholic Philippines, with the ivory used for religious icons. Paje said the destruction of the ivory was one part of the government’s action plan submitted to CITES since March to show it was trying to curb the trade. Another was the launch on Friday of a multi-government-agency taskforce focused solely on the ivory trade. “The Philippines will not be a party to this massacre (of African elephants) and a conduit for the cycle of killing,” Paje said.

The executive director of the Londonbased Environmental Investigation Agency, Mary Rice, praised the Philippines for taking the lead in destroying its stockpiles. “This is a really significant event. It is the first time a consuming country and an Asian country has decided to dispose of its seized stockpiles,” Rice, who was in Manila to witness the event, told AFP. Rice said thousands of kilograms of seized ivory were sitting in storehouses in other cities around Asia and other parts of the world. Rice and other conservationists called for all Asian countries with stockpiles to emulate the Philippines. Some African nations have previously burnt ivory stockpiles. Kenya was the first in 1989, and most recently Gabon did last year. The UN and conservation groups warned in a major report in March that African elephants faced the worst crisis since global trade in ivory was banned almost a quarter-century ago.

Rep. Biazon backs micro-credit financing bill MANILA, June 20 (Mabuhay) – Former senator and now re-elected Muntinlupa Rep. Rodolfo Biazon wants the next Congress to fast track the passage of a bill establishing micro-credit financing to help fight poverty in the rural areas. Biazon, author of House Bill 1703 filed in the 15th Congress, said micro-credit financing should be one of the functions of the Land Bank of the Philippines. The congressman said making micro-credit financing easily accessible to microentrepreneurs is one way of boosting economic development in the countryside. “Micro-entrepreneurs thrive in the rural areas like the sari-sari store operators, tricycle drivers, candy vendors and suppliers of daily newspapers,� he said in a statement. The Biazon proposal seeks to amend Republic Act 3844 or The Code of Agrarian Reform in the Philippines by institutionalizing micro-credit financing as part of Land Bank’s key operations. The bill authorizes Land Bank to grant collateral-free loans ranging from P2,000 to P20,000 to private individuals or informal groups of persons to finance self-help ventures and small-scale businesses or crafts. Under the bill, the Land Bank would be required to allocate 25 percent of its loan portfolio to micro-lending. The measure also mandates Land Bank to submit an annual report to Congress on its micro-lending operations to enable the government to monitor the success of microfinancing as a poverty-reduction scheme as well as to instill fiscal discipline.

MANILA, June 19 (Mabuhay) – Part of the P155 million funding intended for the construction and maintenance of drug rehabilitation centers in the country has yet to be accounted for, according to the Commission on Audit (COA) in a report. The funds were released by the Dangerous Drugs Board (DDB) to national government agencies (P140.57 million), local government units (P13.99 million), and non-government organizations (P1.08 million), the COA said in a report. It added that in 2012 alone, DDB released P60.08 million to these agencies and LGUs, but not a centavo has been accounted for at year end. “For CY 2012, there was no liquidation submitted by the IAs (implementing agencies), while for the funds transferred in previous years only P11,589,860.23 was liquidated leaving a balance of P95,008,691.81,� the report noted. Auditors said releases to national government agencies (NGAs) amounted to P140.57 million, to LGUs P13.99 million and to non-government organizations P1.08 million based on DDB’s ledgers. To ascertain the accuracy of the balances in DDB’s books, auditors sent 16 verification letters to various national government agencies (NGAs). Nine implementing agencies that replied to COA confirmed a total balance of P10.36 million, although the DDB ledger showed they were given P35.94 million. COA blamed the discrepancy to the recipient agencies’ failure to submit liquidation reports upon completion of their respective projects. The implementing agencies that showed discrepancies were the Commission on Higher Education (P11.14 million); Rizal Medical Center (P6.69 million); Department of Health-Region 1 Center for Health Development (P3.75 million); Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (P2.055 million); Malinao Regional Drug Rehabilitation Center (P967,631); Vicente Sotto Memorial Medical Center (P500,000); Philippine Information Agency (P329,330); and National Youth Council (P150,763). Meanwhile, COA questioned DDB for granting additional fund releases to implementing agencies that still had unliquidated fund transfers from previous years, among these was theP5.555 million released to CHED in December 2007. COA said the fund was released to CHED even if a P5 million transfer in August 2007 and P2.21 million in December 2006 were still awaiting submission of expense documents.

EXPLOITATION FROM PAGE 1

Ambassador Cuisia said that other than Nanas and the eight others who were indicted, U.S. authorities have not released the names of the more than 50 employees of various 7-11 stores in New York and Virginia who included a still undetermined number of Filipinos. Consul General De Leon said US authorities have also made it clear that the employees have not been arrested, detained or charged for any offense and are considered victims of exploitation. They will serve as witnesses and will appear in a hearing scheduled on July 18 at the Eastern District Court of New York. According to Consul General De Leon, the US Department of Justice said the employees were exploited, their wages stolen and were required to live in unregulated boarding houses. Nanas and the eight others, who have been described as owners or managers of at least fourteen 7-11 stores in Long Island and Norfolk, were indicted for conspiracy to commit wire fraud, stealing identities and concealing and harboring illegal immigrants. The Eastern District Court of New York had said the investigation of the case is still ongoing and may involve other undocumented foreign nationals working in other 7-11 stores in several states.

“We are closely monitoring developments related to this case,” Ambassador Cuisia said. Meanwhile, the company has issued a statement on the latest raids on 7-Eleven stores. In a statement, it said that “7-Eleven, Inc. is taking an aggressive approach to ending its relationships with franchisees who violate the law or its franchise agreement,” the retailer said in a statement provided to the media. “7-Eleven Inc. has assumed control of two additional stores in Virginia as a result of pending felony proceedings against two franchisees,” said a company statement. “These stores are now open under the management of 7-Eleven Inc.”

nents’ “desire to always seek consensus and not to dismiss even our harshest critics.” The committee, which includes the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) and the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) as co-chairs, was split into various sub-committees to focus on specific aspects of the law such as curriculum, teacher training, and career guidance, among others. “It is auspicious that we are officially starting on the IRR on Jose Rizal’s birthday. He is the epitome of someone who is fully Filipino yet a true citizen of the world,” said Luistro, adding that students going through the entire K-12 Program will experience a rediscovery what it is to be Filipino. The committee intends to finish the final IRR before September 6, 2013. (MNS)

Visa options for victims of domestic violence Being a victim of domestic violence is an IMMIGRATION extremely difficult situation. Not only does the Q&A individual experience the physical, emotional, and/ or psychological abuse itself, but often times has no one to turn to for support out of fear or humiliation. Sometimes family members or friends even try to persuade the victim to not make the domestic abuse public because of the potential negative consequences that the abuser may face. Victims of domestic violence need to understand that this BY ATTY. ALLISON attitude is absolutely wrong and that assistance is AQUINO available to help get them out of an abusive situation. In addition to organizations that will assist a victim with basic needs, like shelter, food, and medical treatment, there are also immigration laws that allow victims of domestic violence in legalizing their immigration status in the United States. The immigration laws provide assistance to anyone who is the victim of domestic violence, whether the abuser is a spouse, parent, step-parent, child, or unmarried partner.

The laws also protect victims who are abused by an individual who is as well out of status in the United States. One option afforded under the law is the ability to apply for a green card. Under the Violence Against Women’s Act (VAWA), which also applies to men despite the law’s name, a victim of domestic violence may file a self-petition for a green card as follows: (1) He/she is a battered spouse of a US citizen or permanent resident (with unmarried children under the age of twenty-one eligible to apply as derivative beneficiaries); (2) He/she is a parent who has been subjected to extreme cruelty by their adult US citizen son or daughter; (3) He/she is the parent of a child who has been abused by a US citizen or permanent resident parent; and (4) He/she is an unmarried child under age 21 who has been abused by a US citizen or permanent resident parent. An unmarried child between 21 to 25 may apply only if they can prove that the abuse was at least one central reason for the filing delay. The child’s unmarried children could also be included as derivative beneficiaries. To qualify for a green card, the spouse, parent or child seeking to self-petition must meet the following requirements: (1) Abuse must have been in the US, unless the abuser is a US government employee or member of the US military; (2) Applicant, or the applicant’s child, must have been battered or subjected to extreme cruelty during the marriage; (3) Applicant is a person of good moral character; and (4) Marriage must have been entered into in good faith. Additionally, if there is a divorce or death of the abusive spouse, it is required that the self-petition be filed within 2 years. The applicant must also demonstrate that the divorce from the abusive US citizen or permanent resident is connected to the abuse. For those who do not qualify under the VAWA provisions, a victim of domestic violence may still legalize his/her immigration status by applying for a U visa, which grants an individual temporary lawful status that can ultimately be converted to a green card. Unlike VAWA, the abuser and victim do not need to be married. As well, the abuser can also be an undocumented individual in the US. To be eligible for a U visa as the victim of domestic violence, an individual must provide evidence establishing the following requirements: (1) He/she suffered substantial physical or mental abuse due to the domestic violence; (2) He/she has information concerning the domestic violence; (3) He/she has been helpful, is being helpful, or is likely to be helpful to law enforcement officials in investigating or prosecuting the perpetrator; and (4) the domestic violence violated US laws or occurred within the US. An individual who has been the victim of domestic violence may obtain a U visa valid for 4 years entitling him/her to work and reside in the US. If the victim is under the age of 21, then his/her spouse, children, parents and unmarried siblings under age 18 are also eligible for a U visa. If the victim is age 21 or older, then the victim’s spouse and children may obtain a U visa as well. After 3 years, U visa holders may apply for permanent residency. To be successful for either a green card or U visa, an applicant must be able to clearly prove that he/she has been subjected to domestic violence. For this reason, it is important that victims be proactive in documenting the abuse through items such as police reports, court cases like restraining orders, medical reports, psychological reports, reports by social workers, reports by clergy, personal affidavits from friends and relatives, and photographs. The VAWA and U visa regulations empower victims of domestic violence to not only ensure that justice against the abuser is obtained, but also to secure justice for himself/herself as a victim deserving of an opportunity in the United States. The immigration laws provide refuge to those who are faced with an intolerable situation of abuse. There is help for victims of domestic violence and hopefully victims can find the strength within to take advantage of the various avenues of assistance so that they can have a safe, secure, and healthy future.

Loew of Aquino & Loew, A Professional Law Corporation; Tel: (888) 797-1140 or (626) 799-3089; Email: info@aquinolaw.net; offices in South Pasadena (Southern California) and San Mateo (Northern California).

The Philippine government will focus more on strong areas to finally stop human trafficking following the report of the US State Department recently that has also retained the country at Tier 2 ranking. In a press briefing in MalacaĂąang on Friday, Deputy Presidential spokesperson Abigail Valte said that while the State Department mentioned inadequacies in the government’s fight against human trafficking there are also some positive observations. Among the gains of the Philippine government is the increase in the number of prosecutors handling human trafficking cases in the country, she said. “The year before the reporting year, it was 57; ngayon tinaasan na to 98, so isa ‘yan sa mga magagandang observations. We intend to exert more efforts on the positive areas and to likewise address the recommendations that were raised,â€? Valte said. There are ten recommendations spelled out by the US State Department and the Interagency Council Against Trafficking intends to act on all of it, she added. In its 2013 Trafficking in Persons report, the US Department of State maintained the country’s Tier 2 status owing to inefficiencies in the justice system and complicity of law enforcers in curbing trafficking in persons. Being in Tier 2 means failure to fully comply with the minimum standards for the elimination of severe forms of trafficking but are making significant efforts to achieve those standards.

faith in Him being divine and did as they were told. Lo and behold, the baskets were continuously replenished with bread and fish until each and every one of the 20,000 were fully fed! This event shows that Jesus loves us so that He does not want us to be hungry, and, if we rely on Him, we rely on the infinite source of abundance. His disciples had asked Him to send the crowd home. It was Jesus who said that they must be hungry and should be fed, instead of being sent home hungry. It was also Jesus who said that “A thief comes to steal, kill and destroy. But I have come that they may live and live life abundantly.” If you are worried that your debts destroy you financially, pray to Jesus because He cares for you and loves you, hence He will surely provide a solution to free you from debt enabling you to be productive again. He cares that the crowd of 20,000 is hungry and should be fed. Thus, He must also care that you will be free of your debt problems because they prevent you from living life abundantly. And He has promised us that He has come so that we may live and live life abundantly! The solution to your debt problems may come in the form of Federal law that provides you with a fresh start in life with a Chapter 7 discharge of your debts. If you qualify, you can wipe out all of your debts while keeping all of your assets subject to exemption laws. For instance, if you owe $100,000 of credit card debt, and another $200,000 of business debts, you can wipe out all $300,000 while keeping your house, your cars, your furniture, your retirement and bank accounts. You may even be able to continue operating your business depending upon certain conditions. Your income remains intact. Thus, you continue doing what you do to make money, keep most if not all your assets, but you are free

The miracle of the multiplication of seven loaves of bread and two fish is only one of the many miracles that Jesus performed to prove that He is the Son of the one true God. Aside from this, Jesus walked on water while the boat of His disciples were being tossed by stormy waves, changed water into wine in a marriage celebration in Cana, Galilee, resurrected the dead child of the widow of Nain , resurrected His friend Lazarus who had been dead for several days, healed the cripple at Bethesda. And He resurrected three days after his death on the cross! He is truly the Son of God!

This means that the applicant must show that his qualifying relative will suffer financial hardship from a lack of support by the applicant, medical hardship from being forced to leave the U.S. to live abroad with the applicant, or emotional hardship from the feared separation from the applicant. In your case, your two U.S. citizen children would serve as qualifying relatives for your application for Cancellation of Removal and you would be required to show how their separation from you would cause them hardship or how difficult it would be for them to suddenly move to the Philippines. In addition, your husband’s father would serve as a very strong qualifying relative because he is a Citizen and is ill. This could constitute medical or physical hardship. How does this process work? The applicant must be placed in removal proceedings in order to qualify. This can be done relatively quickly. Thereafter, the applicant would seek the benefits of Cancellation of Removal and can immediately seek a work permit for himself as well as his spouse. The work permit is valid and renewable for as long as the application is pending-which could take many months or years. This work permit would enable both you and

17

your husband to immediately seek a social security card, State I.D. or drivers license, and to work. Since the process of cancellation of removal is quite slow it could be one to three years before a final decision is rendered-all the while you would maintain a work permit. If the Cancellation of Removal application is granted both you and your spouse would obtain lawful permanent residence (greencard) that is valid indefinitely. If while the application is pending, Congress passes a legalization or amnesty law, you would most likely be eligible to apply for that relief as well. Cancellation is not a viable option for everyone, and I would certainly caution you to seek the advice of a qualified immigration attorney before embarking on this application, but it is a very effective tool to help persons who have no other road to legal status. We have been successful on a number of cases and we screen our applicants to be sure they qualify. (Paul Choi will answer all questions regarding immigration and naturalization for FREE.

OPINION

Gov’t says it has three-pronged approach to address flooding

The government said it is already working on a master plan containing a three-pronged approach to solve the annual flooding and traffic congestion problems particularly in Metro Manila in the long term. In a press conference in Malacanang on Wednesday, Public Works and Highways Secretary Rogelio Singson said the master plan will cover a total area of over 4,000 square kilometers and involve about 17 million people. Among the areas covered will be Metro Manila, parts of Bulacan, Rizal, Quezon, and the whole catchment basin of Laguna Lake, Singson said. For the first time after years of neglect, the Aquino administration adopted a master plan for flood control which is already embedded in the NEDA program, he said. The plan will involve the removal of 20,000 informal settlers living along waterways, drainage system improvement and upgrading of pumping stations especially in Metro Manila, the official said. The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA), the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG), and National Housing Authority (NHA) have already identified eight major waterways that need to be cleared and fund is now available to carry out the project. “‘Pinag-usapan ito kahapon with President Aquino, at may timetable na, may schedule na sila Secretary Manuel Roxas to implement dahil ang funding is already there. So the funding is not an issue. We just need time to be able to implement all of these major projects that we are undertaking,” he said. Singson said there must be an aggressive clean up drive for Metro Manila’s waterways because they were so blocked that waters coming from Sierra Madre can’t go down with ease to Manila Bay and Pasig River. The MMDA said it started cleaning esteros and waterways last May but hasn’t penetrated 55 percent of blocked areas due to the presence of informal settlers. To upgrade the drainage systems based on the master plan, construction works are ongoing in Metro Manila, the MMDA sai There are 26 drainage systems being upgraded in the City of Manila, 13 in Quezon City, and two in EDSA. Constructions are also ongoing in Pasay City and Paranaque City, he noted. According to Singson, the biggest project of the DPWH is the construction of the Blumentritt box culvert or water tunnel to address metro flooding. The Blumentritt culvert will run from Dapitan to Tondo in Manila with a span of 2.6 kilometers. The box culvert has a width of 3.6 meters and height of 2.7 meter, Singson said. But since the drainage system will be 2.6 kilometers long, he appealed to the public to be patient before everyone could feel its effect. It will take the DPWH 12 months to construct, he said. The improvement of pumping stations will be managed by the MMDA and it already has the money to upgrade 12 major pumping stations in Metro Manila, Singson said. Singson further said that there is also non-infrastructure or non-structural measures to be implemented to address flooding, he said. Among these include Project NOAH that involve resettlement, flood drills, and an enhanced information system. Because Project NOAH was already able to do a flood modeling system, it could predict flooding in Pasig and Marikina Rivers, the official said.

Dear Kababayan, Magandang araw po sa inyong lahat! I wish to make a final appeal to parties who may be interested in taking part in the 8th Ambassadors, Consuls General and Tourism Directors Tour (ACGTDT). In this Tour, I will lead a group of Filipinos and Americans to the Philippines from July 9 to 12, 2013. The Department of Foreign Affairs together with the Department of Tourism have been organizing this program, held during the summer, since 2005. This brings around 400 Filipinos and Americans to the Philippines each year. Participants enjoy a VIP tour at a reasonable cost. Among other activities, the group will have a private audience with our beloved and highly respected President Benigno Aquino III in Malacanang. This is the best time to visit the Philippines because of a great transformation that is happening in our country. Hope is permeating the Philippines today and a renewed sense of confidence is felt by Filipinos all over the world. Key credit rating agencies have upgraded the Philippines to investment grade. The 7.8 percent growth the Philippine economy recorded

in the first quarter of the year was the strongest in all of Asia. Thus we hear about the Philippines being “the country to watch out for, the new Asian tiger, and an emerging economic giant,” testaments to the reforms instituted by the Aquino Administration. Filipinos and Americans making plans for the coming summer break are being urged to take a second look at the Philippines and see why it is fast making a name for itself as an international holiday destination. As of June 10, 442 people have already registered for this exciting tour. Certain airlines have slashed their round-trip airfare from Washington, DC to Manila to as low as $1,650! Prospective participants may register online at ACGTDT.com. Registration is scheduled to close next week. Please feel free to disseminate this information to your colleagues. For any questions, the Philippine Embassy may be contacted at telephone number 202 467-9398 or email addresscultural@philippinesusa.org. Maraming salamat po! JOSE L. CUISIA, JR. Ambassador

U.S. seizure of journalist records called ‘chilling’ BY ROB LEVER

WASHINGTON, June 19, 2013 (AFP) – The U.S. government’s secret seizure of Associated Press phone records had a “chilling effect” on newsgathering by the agency and other news organizations, AP’s top executive said Wednesday. “Some longtime trusted sources have become nervous and anxious about talking with us,” AP president and chief executive Gary Pruitt said in a speech to the National Press Club. “In some cases, government employees we once checked in with regularly will no longer speak to us by phone. Others are reluctant to meet in person ... This chilling effect on newsgathering is not just limited to AP. “Journalists from other news organizations have personally told me that it has intimidated both official and nonofficial sources from speaking to them as well.” Pruitt spoke one month after the US news agency revealed that it had been notified after the fact that the US Justice Department had secret subpoenas of two months of phone records from its news operations. The AP has said US authorities appeared to have sought out the records as part of a criminal investigation into leaked information contained in a May 2012 AP story about a foiled terror plot. Pruitt, who previously called the seizure “a massive and unprecedented intrusion” into newsgathering, said the Justice Department “violated its own rules” on how it handles investigations of leaks to news media.

He said the collection of records pertaining to more than 100 journalists was “an overbroad and sloppy fishing expedition” and failed to follow procedures on notification. Pruitt said that authorities maintained that by notifying the AP ahead of the sweep “it would have tipped off the leaker” but argued “that kind of reasoning would apply in every single case.” This rationale would mean news organizations would never know when its records are being obtained, news sources would become less willing to speak and “the public will only know what the government wants them to know.” The Justice Department has told the AP “that our phone records have been and will continue to be walled off, protected and used for no other purpose other than the leak investigation,” Pruitt said. “We appreciate these assurances. But that does not excuse what they did. We need to make sure it doesn’t happen again.” The AP chief said the US administration should reaffirm the right of advance notice to news organizations, and use the courts to adjudicate any disputes on whether certain records are needed. He also called for a “federal shield law with teeth” to ensure that journalists are not prosecuted for doing their jobs. “We do not dispute that the government has the right to pursue those who leak classified information,” he said. But he argued that “no one in this country See U.S. SEIZURE, page 19

WASHINGTON, June 19, 2013 (AFP) – Citing a “clear cultural shift,” Alaska’s senior U.S. lawmaker on Wedneday became the third Senate Republican to openly back marriage equality, as the US Supreme Court prepares to rule on landmark gay rights cases. The announcement by Senator Lisa Murkowski brings to 54 the number of senators, including all but three of the Democrats in the 100-seat chamber, to openly support gay marriage. Republican Senators Rob Portman and Mark Kirk were the first to buck their party platform when they announced their support earlier this year. Senate Democrat Frank Lautenberg was a supporter, but he died early this month at age 89 and was replaced by a Republican who has not clarified his position on the issue. Murkowski supported a 1998 constitutional

amendment defining marriage as between a man and a woman, but said on her website Tuesday that “my thinking has evolved as America has witnessed a clear cultural shift. “Fifteen years after that vote, I find that when one looks closer at the issue, you quickly realize that same sex unions or civil marriages are consistent with the independent mindset of our state, and they deserve a hands-off approach from our federal policies.” Twelve states have legalized same sex marriage, including three states in a two-week span in May, but constitutional bans against gay marriage remain in place in 31 of the 50 US states. The Supreme Court is expected to rule this month on whether or not the Defense of Marriage Act, under which the federal government recognizes only heterosexual marriages, is constitutional.

Recent loan modification success story Researching blog MORTGAGE UPDATE site like loansafe. org, I have come across a few loan mod success that might excite you with their stories. I thought I might share it with you: “First of all, I wanted to say a BY KEN GO special thank you to Loan Safe and it’s members for the valuable and knowledgeable information that it provides. For the last 3.5 years I have visited the site to gain knowledge and to remind myself “you are not alone in this journey of trying to be modified.” Before the successful modification with Bank of America I had been through 3 attempts to get a modification and each time my loan was sold. (First Franklin, to Litton Loan to Bank of America.) Before the DOJ settlement, my first attempt at a modification was denied. However I was told that the option of a short sale was available. My property was put on the market and low and behold after about 6 months and no concrete offers, this DOJ settlement is approved. My short sale transaction was “suspended” and I was forced to apply for the “new modification” before BofA would consider the short sale again.. I was upset, I was very upset, because I had gotten to a place of being content with doing the short sale and leaving my home of 7 years. Fast forward to the journey of the “DOJ modification”. I receive this very welcoming “you could be approved for a principal reduction, blah blah blah..” With no excitement I complete the paperwork, send it to whom it should go to and receive yet another DENIAL letter.. Out of curiosity I call my representative and was told I was denied for 2 reasons. #1- Not sending my divorce decree (that’s a problem because I’ve never been married and sent a very long letter signed by

my brother whom is on the loan stating as much and that he had moved out of the house in 2008 with no intention or returning.) #2 Because BofA has taken the liberty to add my bank statement deposits to my actual income (which made it looks as if I could afford my mortgage. At this time, I’m torn and a little more peeved than before at their incompetence and the fact that I had missed out on renting a nice little condo by the beach. My representative is the sweetest guy “encouraged” me to try again and promised he would keep a watch out for anything that was noted or seemed incompetent. September 2012 I get a “you’re approved for a trial mod”.. I’m thinking oh yippee I get to pay a mortgage for 3 months and then denied (like the stories I’ve read online). But then I get to thinking “I guess that’s ok, I won’t be misplaced for the Holidays..” I make my October, November, and December payments… Low and behold, I get a permanent modification via federal express 2 weeks later.. I am baffled, just completely floored because after almost 4 years of trying to get a modification, trying to track down the next NACA, etc.... I’ve been approved, and I’m talking a really good approval.. My payments before were $2,935.00 Principal and interest $366.00 Taxes and $156.00 forced place insurance… My payments now are, well I’ll let you take a look below.. I’ll sum this up and say, don’t do like me and lose faith, I had given up, although I now understand that even with my giving up God did not give up on me nor my home and had a plan for me all this time. I still cannot believe that I owe the same amount on my home that it’s worth and that my payments were reduced by about 45% (well it’ll be 50% once I obtain my own insurance which is only about $78.00 per month... I must admit, I am very grateful to my representative and BofA (never thought I’d say that).. I am able to keep my home, fix it up, and once I fix the back house for rent, this payment will be all to easy to make every single month Well it’s already easy, it’ll just be that much easier.. “

BANKRUPTCY could be your best bet to prevent further financial damage and legal problems.

With expert and timely guidance, we will help you file a successful petition to eliminate personal or business debt in no time.

Get the help you need.

Recently I spoken to a homeowner who has been denied over and over again with Boa for a loan mod, she really wanted to continue to live in that house therefore, I have ask someone to help her push the loan modification request one more time, sure enough BOA approved a trial payment period for three months, now we shall see and hope that she will get a favorable permanent mod. For homeowners that might not be in a huge negative equity of course, loan modification is the best choice of reducing your payments. So, hopefully this story will lift your spirits up and bring you success in your effort to get better payments for your home.

should ever be prosecuted for committing journalism.” Last month, Attorney General Eric Holder said the leak which prompted the seizure of journalist phone records was a “very serious” matter which “puts the American people at risk.” Pruitt said Wednesday however that the AP waited five days before publishing the article, until after it had been assured by US officials that “the national security risk had passed. The US administration under President Barack Obama has been aggressive in pursuing leaks of secret government information. Authorities have said they had opened a probe into Edward Snowden, the former government contractor who leaked details about a cast US government electronic surveillance program. Former CIA officer John Kiriakou was sentenced in January to two and a half years in prison for leaking the name of a secret agent implicated in harsh interrogations of Al-Qaeda suspects.

ENTERTAINMENT Christian Bautista disappointed over show’s cancellation SINGER Christian Bautista said he was disappointed when “Party Pilipinas� was cancelled on television weeks after his transfer from ABS-CBN to GMA-7. “Medyo nagulat ako and na disappoint ako nun. Pero ganun talaga, meron tayong mga circumstances na we can’t change. So we’ve got to move on, take the dust of and start fresh,� said Christian during the press launch of his upcoming morning series “With A Smile,� which he co-stars with Andrea Torres and Mikael Daez. He added that after the GMA-7 announced that the show will be axed, he received numerous hate tweets on micro-blogging site, Twitter. “May tweets na ‘Ayan palipat lipat ka pa kasi, ano ng nangyari sa iyo.’ Meron mga naninisi, may supporters and may haters, halo halo yan. Meron talagang ups and down (but we have to) start working from the ground up,� he said. But Christian said that even though the program was discontinued on television, he never cast a doubt on the network.

Christian Bautista

He believes GMA-7 will come up with a brand new show that will feature the talents of its stars. GMA is set to launch soon “SAS,� its newest Sunday concert program. “Whatever happens, we pursue, we cooperate, we fight and we work hard. Kung at this stage sinabi ko na ‘Mali pala yung ginawa ko’. That does mean na yung commitment ko from the start doesn’t mean anything,� he said. Meanwhile, Christian said the new series “With a Smile,� where he plays a lead role, will give him a chance to return to acting. “This is my first lead role in a long time. Nakita ko yung sequence ko and parang may taping na ako lang. I need to keep my energy, attitude and character the whole day. Nakakatuwa kasi yung buong cast okay,� he said. The singer will be the third wheel in Andrea and Mikael’s blossoming romance in the series. “With a Smile� premieres June 17 before “Unexpected You� on GMA’s morning block. (MNS)

A decade in, Maja Salvador dedicates success to fans Maja Salvador is dedicating her decade-long success in showbiz to fans who continue to support her through her career’s highs and lows. The 24-year-old actress joined showbiz in 2003 after she became the subject of headlines as a teen reunited with a father she had never met, former actor Ross Rival. It didn’t take long before offers came in for Salvador to try acting, with one landing her a role in the primetime series “It Might Be You,� which starred Bea Alonzo and John Lloyd Cruz. Since then, Salvador has appeared in over 40 TV projects and a dozen films, and has even ventured into concert

performances. Asked to whom she dedicates her 10th year anniversary in showbiz, Salvador said, “Of course sa fans, kasi siyempre very grateful ako sa mga fans na sumusuporta sa akin, talagang simula umpisa hanggang ngayon, kung anuman ang nangyayari, andiyan parin sila.� “Basta ang importante nage-enjoy tayo sa trabaho natin at nakakapagpasaya tayo sa mga tao,� she added. To celebrate her first decade in the industry, Salvador is touring in her own concert series, titled “Maja Unveils @ 10�. The concert had its maiden show June 15 at Metro

She added: “Mas nai-inspire ka at namo-motivate ka, ‘yung determinasyon mo mas guma-grabe, at dahil sa kanila kung bakit ka nagtatrabaho nang maigi.� (MNS)

Ruffa Gutierrez to study International Political Economy in King’s College London TELEVISION host and actress Ruffa Gutierrez will fly to London soon to pursue a summer degree in International Political Economy. Ruffa shared the good news to her more than 1.8 million followers on Twitter. She said that it has always been her dream to study abroad. “(I) have this thirst for knowledge. Finally...the time is right!” she tweeted. The actress added that she chose International Political Economy, under the Business and Management department, because she found it as something that she “would like to immerse myself in”.

Ruffa also tweeted why she picked King’s College London in Central London among all top universities in the United Kingdom. “@iloveruffag: Why King’s College? I want to study in an elite university with a global & outstanding reputation of academic excellence. #top30universities” Founded in 1829, King’s College London is the third oldest university in England. It ranked 19th best school in Europe in the 2012 Academic Ranking of World Universities.

It’s all over for comedienne Pokwang and her British suitor Pokwang revealed that her foreign suitor was scheduled to visit her in Manila last April but this didn’t happen. “Hindi na (dumating),” Pokwang said. Asked if the guy gave up because she’s playing hard to get, Pokwang replied: “Malamang, malamang.” Last March, comedienne excitedly announced that her suitor will return the country in April, just a few months after his last visit in January. Pokwang, a single parent, even said that her British suitor already met her daughter Mae. Pokwang stressed that she and the British guy are only friends but also admitted that he inspires her. Pokwang has never named her suitor. (MNS)

Comedians say ‘comedy academy’ not needed Two well-known comedians are apprehensive about the suggestion of the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB) to put up a “comedy academy” in the country.n Vice Ganda, who recently made headlines after offending broadcast journalist Jessica Soho over his jokes, said he is not keen on the idea of spearheading an institute where comedians would have to attend classes. Vice Ganda, along with other ABS-CBN executives, recently met with MTRCB Chairman Eugenio “Toto” Villareal, for a discussion on how to properly handly “comedy bar humor.” “Nag-suggest siya. Sabi niya ‘Magtayo ka ng school, simulan mo?’ Sabi ko parang hindi ko pa naman kaya. Sabi niya, ‘Magtulungan tayo,’ kasi wala pa raw institute for comedy sa Pilipinas. ‘Simulan mo na tutal bata ka pa pero kino-consider ka ng icon sa comedy. Marami ka namang makakatulong diyan eh.’ Sabi ko nga ayaw kong magturo,” Vice Ganda said.

HAIR SOLUTIONS

BY ALICE SHIN

Digital Setting Perm Digital Perm is a brand new perm which also made for people with long hair, unlike setting perm. This perm is for short hair to long hair, and with low heat. Your hair will not have too much damage. After careful observation, cutting about 5 layers, your hair will look more stylish. This perm takes less time than regular perm, and gives more strength to your hair, which will make your curls very healthy, pretty, shiny. So what is the difference between regular perm and Digital Perm? For regular perm, your curls will become weak as the time passes. However, on the other hand, digital perm’s heat will make your curls make more natural, and you don’t have to worry about your curls getting loose suddenly. There are various temperatures that the designer can select for individuals, which is much safer than regular perm. The most known pros of Digital Perm Since your curls will last longer, you can save your money. Even your hair is terribly damaged, you can do this and have beautiful curls. We put protective ample for your hair, so that your hair won’t get much damage. After Care We recommend using hair treatment, ample, or hair essence regularly.

COMMUNITY SoCal Edison partners with customers to conserve energy ROSEMEAD, Calif., June 17, 2013 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; As Southern Californians prepare for summer, Southern California Edison (SCE) is asking customers to be especially conservation-minded to help keep the electric grid stable and reliable during hot weather when energy use spikes, particularly without the power generated from the San Onofre nuclear plant. Last summer, SCE customers saved 300 megawatts through conservation measures â&#x20AC;&#x201C; enough to power about 200,000 homes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;While Edison has been doing all that it can to prepare to supply power without help from the San Onofre plant, customer conservation is still a must,â&#x20AC;? said Erwin Furukawa, SCE senior vice president for customer service. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now is the time to enroll in our conservation programs and start practicing conservation behaviors that can make a big difference for the grid.â&#x20AC;? SCE is taking measures to make up for critical power generation resources that will not be available this year

with the retirement of the San Onofre nuclear plant. SCE continues to make critical infrastructure improvements to its transmission systems and is bringing online 1,900 megawatts of generation â&#x20AC;&#x201C; enough to power 1.23 million homes at a point in time â&#x20AC;&#x201C; from Walnut Creek Energy Park in the City of Industry, CPV Sentinel Energy Project in the Coachella Valley and the El Segundo Generating Station. Some ways customers can help improve grid reliability and control costs include: Enrolling in programs such as the Summer Discount Plan, which offers up to $200 in bill credits for customers who allow SCE to temporarily disable their central air conditioner Opting into Save Power Days, a program that provides bill credits in exchange for reducing energy usage during peak periods, from 2-6 p.m., on designated days. Keeping the thermostat set to 78 or above, using fans to make a room feel at least 5 degrees cooler, and drawing drapes during the hottest part of the day.

Using LED and CFL light bulbs not only keep bills lower, but they create less heat than old, inefficient incandescent bulbs in the home. To ensure long-term grid reliability, the utility will be closely working with the California Independent System Operator, as well as the California Energy Commission, California Public Utilities Commission, local and state elected officials, and the communities served to address future energy needs for customers. For more ways to save energy and money this summer, visit www.SCE.com/save. Customers can also get more tips via Twitter and Facebook, and watch videos on how to save energy on our YouTube channel. About Southern California Edison An Edison International (NYSE:EIX) company, Southern California Edison is one of the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest electric utilities, serving a population of nearly 14 million via 4.9 million customer accounts in a 50,000-square-mile service area within Central, Coastal and Southern California.

Is an inheritance ‘community property’ ? California is a i.LAW “community property “ state. What this means is that generally speaking each spouse owns a one-half share of any assets accumulated during the marriage. this time frame is generally defined as that period from the BY ATTY. MIGUEL P. INUMERABLE time of the wedding until separation. However, California laws generally classify an inheritance received during one’s marriage as separate

property and not “community property.” The other spouse is not presumed to have a one-half share of the money or property inherited. There are several exceptions to this rule. Oftentimes, a characterization of a property may depend on factors such as the timing of when said asset is received and in the nature of how and why it was received, and the purpose of same. The line between separate property and “community property” with regards to an inheritance can often be blurred, whether intentionally or unwittingly done. for example, when moneys inherited is used to pay down the mortgage in a residence considered community property. The asset may take don a mixed character or in other words, a combination of community property and separate property. The laws concerning this area of law crosses over several issues of family

Digging yourself out of a financial mess Debt Settlement, Loan Modification, Principal Reduction Loan Modifications Programs are the ways to keep FINANCIAL millions of Americans in their homes as real-estate values SOLUTIONS plunge and unemployment soar. Under the Government’s Home Affordable Modifications Program & Principal Reduction Program, the lender agrees to adjust the terms of the loan, in most cases by temporarily lowering the interest rate or extending the period in which the loan must be repaid, both of which serve to lower the monthly payment, Possible Principal Reduction and Short Payoff of second lien by 80%-90% less Through Second Lien Settlement Program. Mortgage companies also have their own programs for borrowers who don’t qualify for BY CLARO PEREZ the government program. Generally, Loan Modification and Principal Reduction Program are designed for homeowners who are currently experiencing financial distress or are at imminent risk of default. You do not have to be behind on your payments in order to qualify, although many are. Borrowers who enter the program could, for example, be in an adjustable-rate mortgage or an interest-only mortgage and may struggle to keep current on payments when their rates reset. Yet many homeowners report difficulties modifying a loan because of no financial ability to pay for the new modification payment. Even worse, lenders may report the modifications to credit bureaus that can hurt a good credit history. A damaged credit history can mar borrowers’ ability to qualify for new credit or may prompt current lenders to cut existing credit lines. Your score probably won’t fall much if your credit has already taken a beating. But if you’re someone with pristine credit, getting a modification could cause your score to take a steep dive. If you are opting for a modification under HAMP- in which mortgage payments are lowered to

law and probate. A living trust may also be advisable in some circumstances as well as pre-nuptial agreements between prospective spouses. It would be wise to consult with an attorney well-versed in both family law and probate to get a specific understanding of the legal consequences and solutions in your particular circumstances. Our office is ready, willing and able to assist and represent you in these matters. Attorney Miguel Inumerable is a graduate of UCLA Law School and has more than 25 years experience serving the Filipino community. He is bilingual in Tagalog and English. His areas of practice includes Family Law (divorce, custody, support, restraining orders) Bankruptcy, Business Litigation, Immigration and Deportation, Probate and Criminal and Regulatory Law.

31% of a homeowner’s gross monthly income- you will likely have to go through a three-month trial period when you are paying a reduced amount before lenders approve the modification. And once approved, the lender may continue to report the modification as “partial payment”- which generally hurts your score. But there’s a temporary fix on the horizon. Lenders will be able to use a new code that specifies whether a mortgage was modified under the government’s plan. That code will reduce the hit to the credit files of people who work with the government to modify their loan; those who work directly with their own lender for more lenient terms could still see a significant hit if the lender reports their own modifications as a partial payment to the credit bureaus. But while the new status codes will have no impact on your score for now, that could change once the industry has had a chance to determine whether someone who modifies a loan is an elevated credit risk. Q: Are loan modifications only for people who are seriously behind on their payments? Not necessarily. If you have never missed a payment but, because of the financial pinch of the recession, turned to the Making Home Affordable program to modify your mortgage(s). But, keep in mind that missing paperwork, conflicting information and delays in processing your application may result in your lender reporting you delinquent to the credit bureaus. Q: Am I better off avoiding a loan modification and simply going through a foreclosure? No. Foreclosures are generally more damaging to your credit, and stay in your record for up to seven years. Many lender, for example, will automatically deny credit applications if they see a foreclosure in your credit files. Q: How does Debt Income Ratio play a big role on a successful Loan Modification? Homeowner Debt Income Ratio will determine a successful loan modification application, this will qualify if the homeowner have a financial ability to pay for the given modify mortgage payment that includes property tax, home insurance, principal and interest. If the total monthly total expense is greater then the net income loan modification by $ 2500 and up is not possible. Q: What other income are acceptable when applying for a loan modification ? You can include any documented income of individual who reside in the subject property and it See CLARO PEREZ next page requires any evidence that the individual really reside

are considered premature every year in part because the relative deficient nature of prenatal care available to the poor. At least thirty percent of these premature babies develop retinopathy, a disease that causes abnormal blood vessel growth in the retina from excessive oxygenation. If the affliction is not diagnosed and treated within 48 hours of birth these premature babies become permanently blind. At Jose Fabella Memorial Hospital, for example, a government maternal and newborn tertiary hospital in the heart of Metropolitan Manila, more than 1,000 premature babies develop retinopathy and become blind every year. Multiply this by the number of hospitals in the country and the relatively high number of births in the Philippines and the case becomes alarming. Hospitals in the Philippines are not as thoroughly familiar with retinopathy from prematurity. Hence, most doctors may not have the proper training and the hospitals may not have the appropriate equipment to recognize, diagnose and treat the affliction. Worst, the local hospitals may not be well versed with the medical approach to address the issue within 48 hours of birth to prevent blindness. In launching the project, the Apl of My Eye intends to enter into partnerships with four pilot hospitals in the Philippines: Dr. Jose Fabella Memorial Hospital, Philippine General Hospital, Saint Luke’s Hospital and Angeles Medical Center. Ophthalmologists and pediatric surgeons from Children’s Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA) will travel to the Philippines to train medical teams at these participating hospitals. The U.S. contingent will bring the required special equipment to assist in diagnosis and perform demonstration surgeries shadowed by Filipino doctors.

Is bankruptcy your only chance to recover financially? When your finanMINDING YOUR cial circumstances are forcing you to FINANCES declare bankruptcy, it is one way of dealing with debts that you can no longer manage on your own. Of course, the decision should not be taken lightly and it is best to consult BY ATTY. RAY BULAON with an experienced bankruptcy attorney to see if it is best for your situation. The truth is that filing bankruptcy is no longer the taboo that it used to be when people were less informed about the legal process. Now with information readily available on the internet, people are able to educate themselves much faster and can do their own “research” to get some general ideas about bankruptcy before they even see an attorney. In our current economy, I’m sure you know someone in your family or perhaps at work who had no choice but to file bankruptcy in order to save their home, reorganize their finances or simply to wipe out their debts and start all over again. Did you know that every year, more than 1.5 million people in the United States file bankruptcy in order to take advantage of the fresh financial start that

the law provides to those who are eligible for relief? Contrary to what creditors may lead you to believe, these are honest, hard-working every day people just like you who simply got buried in debt with no other way out. Bankruptcy is never a fun thing to do or just an easy way out for people who simply want to run away from their obligations. The fact is that most people want to do the right thing and pay their creditors but their situation has gotten so bad that without bankruptcy, they would simply be trapped in debt forever. Thus, with no means to pay their debt, it may be their only chance of ever recovering financially. Can you just imagine what would happen if someone was hopelessly buried in debt with no way out and creditors were just breathing down on this person’s neck every single day? If he works, creditors can garnish his wages. If he puts what little money he has in the bank, creditors can levy his bank accounts. If he decides to purchase a home, they can put a lien on the home. He can’t even answer his phone and is always afraid to open his mailbox. Every time someone knocks on the door, he cringes in fear thinking that he’s being served a lawsuit. If you were in this situation, you would almost feel like a criminal with no chance of ever rebuilding your life and learning from your mistakes. So a long time ago, Congress decided that there had to be away for people in this situation to be able to get back on their feet financially when no other options exist. So, that’s how the bankruptcy laws

in the subject property- utility bills & etc. and its consider as a Household Income. Q: What other financial solutions if homeowner have a excessive credit card and & unsecured debt ? You can enroll in a Debt Negotiation Program to lower your debt and monthly payment by 50% to have a better Debt Income Ration. Also contact a BK attorney to resolve your debt problem, it help to improve your debt income ration. Q: What other solutions if your income can not support the eligibility requirement for a loan modification to keep the home? None, what you can do is just face the reality and Short Sale the property or request a Deed In Lieu to Foreclosure. After few months enhance your credit by availing the Credit Repair Program and start all over again. Q: What is the first step to consider applying for any Loan Modification Program?

started, you see. Of course, they’ve evolved over the years to keep up with the changing times but the concept remains the same: The honest debtor who got in too deep in debt is given a fresh financial start free from the burden of debt so he can be a free person again! Wow! Thank God we have laws like that in this country. What a blessing, don’t you agree? Again, bankruptcy is NOT for everyone and people who can pay their bills should do so. But if you’ve tried everything and your best is just not good enough, remember that you may be eligible for relief under our bankruptcy laws. It may not seem like it but the legal process does work and it can work for you if you want it to! Starting over after bankruptcy is not going to be a walk in the park but it’s also not as bad as most people think. Never lose hope! Rebuilding your credit and your life will take some effort and strategy on your part but it is not impossible. You can turn bankruptcy to your advantage and regain control of your life.

Under HARP you can refinance or streamline your existing mortgage even there is no equity or value is upside down provided your existing loan is a Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac Loan, and FHA Loan.

In cooperation with Berce Enterprises. In 2004, Pokwang shot to fame, winning “Yes Yes Show,” a reality TV show in ABSCBN. Soon afterward, she was acting in dramas and sitcoms for the network. She won Best Comedy Actress award from the Philippine Movie Press Club for her portrayal in the sitcom “Aalog-Alog” and the Best Female Comedian award from the People’s Choice Awards. She’s also hosted “Wowowee,” “Pilipinas Win na Win,” “Happy Yipee Yehey,” and “Pinoy Big Brother Buzz” (spinoff of the popular reality TV show “Pinoy Big Brother”). Her gut-busting impersonations are legion: Annabelle Rama, Dionisia Pacquiao, Marlene

Aguilar (sister of singer Freddie Aguilar). Pooh is not only an award-winning comedian. He is also an actor, comedian, impersonator, singer, and salon co-owner. A familiar face in ABS-CBN dramas, sitcoms and variety shows, he is best known as a star of the comedy gag show “Banana Split” and for his spot-on impersonation of boxer and congressman Manny Pacquiao. Pooh won back-to-back Aliw Awards for Best Male Standup Comedian in 2006 and 2007, and was again nominated in 2008. Chokoleit is a multi-talented artist: he can host, act, dance, sing, and do stand-up comedy. He has numerous screen credits under his belt.

As a singer, K Brosas fronted Gladys and The Boxers (later K and The Boxers).

Larry & Art of Noypitz: Two guys, one vision Much like a street merger, Larry Calonzo hails LIGHTHOUSE from Bulacan while Art Pamintuan from Pampanga. Together they launched Noypitz, in January, 2012 as the main hub of upscale Filipino cuisine, dancing, entertainment, conferences and catering They met ten years ago in the medical field and it took them some time to plan and dream on the concept of “bringing the Filipino community together in one place, where they can experience intimate gatherings with a flair of fine dining and a place to meet with friends, celebrities and witness fine entertainment.” Not only is Noypitz now a favorite watering hole, BY MYRNA AQUITANIA it is home to numerous community and fundraising events, with Art and Larry even hosting these noble activities. Noypitz is closed on Mondays but they have a full entertainment calendar the rest of the week. Their website states all their ongoing entertainment schedule which includes Ballroom dancing on Wednesdays, Salsa dancing on Thursdays, Comedy and Karaoke Art Pamintuan and Larry Calonzo (right) on Fridays and Saturdays and Latin Nights on Sundays. The 5,000 sq. ft. building of Noypitz, according to Art, used to be an Italian Restaurant and a Mexican Restaurant. When Larry and Art took over, they decided to renovate the building. It now features an upscale sports bar which includes ten television monitors, where people can sit, sip their beverage or liquor and eat while watching sports games, such as this pastTuesday night when there were around 70 people glued to see if Miami Heat, coached by Fil-Am Eric Spoelstra who with Lebron James and Dwayne Wade, are once again world champions after Thursday’s Game 7 championship game. Additional building renovations at Noypitz includes the 500 sq. ft. dancing floor which overflows to the beat of Salsa on Thursday nights and a variety of Latin Band music like Merengue, Bachata, Cha Cha and Tango on Sunday nights. And, in order to accommmodate the overflow, some dancers are encouraged to move to the more private spot in the basement where the usual conference area is turned into a disco-lighted dancing floor with a fantastic DJ on dance nights. As part of their ongoing pursuit for superb customer service, Larry and Art added Valet parking service, and a free 50-car parking lot across the street. Once parked, guests are awed by the rattan-inspired furniture at the building entrance which has an inviting Patio with two cabanas, mostly rented by event organizers for weddings, birthdays or funeral receptions. According to Larry, part of the success of Noypitz is their loyal employees. Their Manager, Lau Gumban is the friendly soul

who makes sure every customer is taken cared of and their superb cooks, Tonton, Dino , Rey and Anthony are all constantly enhancing the food they serve to make it palatable. Ultimately, Art and Larry’s vision for

the future includes other locations. With their passion, commitment and their relentless pursuit for dining excellence, there is no doubt that their vision will be fulfilled. Let us all support the partnership vision of Larry and Art, our kababayans whose aim is to bring us together. That place is called Noypitz and it is located in the heart of Glendale.

We will help analyze your situation, and advise you about the best course of action to take.

Her voice was ear-piercing to say the least, but Anne Curtis’ performance at Pechanga Resort & Casino in the City of Temecula was well-received by fans, many of whom traveled from as far as Los Angeles and had to endure hours of snarling traffic on the 91 and 15 freeways. It was a Father’s Day well spent, though there were more mothers and wives who saw Annebisyosa – a term coined from the Tagalog word “ambisyosa” which means ambitious – a fitting description for Anne’s courageous feat to hit the stage and sing, dance and throw out spills that impressed even the most critical scribes in the audience. Of course, the “tisay” in Anne, her pretty face, sultry figure and impressive costume changes had factored in. A regular patron of the Pechanga Theater even mentioned “I’ve seen a lot of shows at Pechanga, but Anne was even more entertaining than the real singers!” Adding to that is Anne’s humility – apologizing almost each time she belted out a song or making fun of her own singing – which endeared her more to her fans. Relatively unknown to many Filipino-Americans, who may or may not have Filipino channels on their cable TV, Anne’s rousing performance was both unbelievable and unforgettable. And the full house crowd was more than pleased, especially when she decided to come down from the stage and walked the aisles, let fans hug her and had her pictures taken with them. Indeed, her down-to-earth character more than made up for her “singing prowess.” Anne’s show was Pechanga Resort & Casino’s offering to the Filipino community as they celebrated their 115th anniversary of “Araw ng Kalayaan” or Philippine Independence Day, a welcome tribute to the large Filipino populace in Southern California, many of whom have been employed by Pechanga Resort & Casino as managers, customer service personnel and manning casino tables. One of the managers, Assistant Food & Beverage Director Tony Canicosa, 49, supervises all restaurants at the casino. The former Las Vegas food and restaurant veteran, who helped open the restaurants of both the Mirage and Mandalay Bay in Sin City, “fled” the desert for the cooler temperatures at the Pechanga whose management Canicosa described as more “pro-workers” and more consistent and effective in keeping their employees’ welfare in mind. “We are happier and have better benefits here,” he said. Even the main entrances to the resort were adorned with decorations commemorating the Filipino holiday, like prints of the Philippine flag, and its colors, red, yellow and blue on Fiesta buntings, bursting from a giant yellow Philippine sun as the centerpiece. Inside the casino, a “Bahay Kubo” – a traditional Filipino nipa hut and other ethnic ornaments imbibed a Filipino themed celebration. Director of Asian Marketing at Pechanga Resort Casino Greg Leung said it was the second time that Pechanga decorated the hotel with a Philippine motif to help celebrate the country’s Independence Day that happens to fall on June 12th. Leung said Anne’s ticket sales, who performed on both Saturday and Sunday, were “very good,” while the past “Triple Threat” show of Piolo Pascual, Angeline Quinto and Pokwang just last March was a sold out performance. The Pechanga Theater has become a regular destination for Filipino artists, like Sharon Cuneta, Gary Valenciano, Sarah Geronimo and many other artists from Manila. The theater is an ideal venue with state-of-the-art sound, and an intimate seating plan with comfortable chairs and an up-close view from every theater seat. When it comes to entertainment, Pechanga, versus other venues, proves effortless with free valet and self-parking for guests, complimentary casino/resort shuttles, gourmet and casual dining options on site, and some of the best nightclubs and lounges in the West Coast. Other upcoming entertainment at Pechanga Resort & Casino includes: • June 21 – Cyndi Lauper - $45, $44, $65 • June 22 – Annual BBQ Championships - $5.00 • June 28-30 – 18th Annual Pechanga Pow Wow – Free • July 5 – Comedian Jim Gaffigan -$40, $45, $55 • July 12 – Smokey Robinson • July 13 – 5th Annual Pechanga Microbrew Festival - $25 & 45 • July 13 - Karen Tong & Samuel Tai (Chinese concert) $48, $68, $98, $118 • July 27 - Byun Jin-Sub (Korean concert) - $65, $85 and $105 • August 4 – Diana Ross - $90, $100, $115 • August 9 – Chicago - $81, $91, $101 • August 11 – Chris Isaak - $50, $60, $70 • September 27 & 28 – Comedian Brian Regan - $60, $65, $75 Owned and operated by the Pechanga Band of Luiseño Indians and rated a Four Diamond property by AAA since 2003, Pechanga Resort & Casino offers the largest See ANNE at PECHANGA next page

(Relaxnews) – The first carbon-fiber bodied convertible in Aston Martin’s history, the Vanquish Volante manages to retain its hard-top counterpart’s performance figures while increasing the style. The $300,000 convertible version of the flagship Vanquish can go from 0-62mph (100km/h) in 4.1 seconds and on to an estimated top speed of 183mph (295km/h) and, thanks to its 6.0-litre V12 engine, power is always on tap at any speed and acceleration is prompt at any point from idle to redline. A super GT car rather than an out-andout supercar, the Volante is designed for long, entertaining and exciting continental roadtrips rather than for setting new lap records at the local circuit – hence a six-speed automatic, rather than manual transmission – but that doesn’t mean that the car can’t hold its own against its competition. As with many flagship Astons, however, the emphasis of the Vanquish Volante is as much on comfort as it is on out-and-out performance, and cabin space is such that rear-seat passengers will be able to avoid discomfort on longer journeys. Luggage space is also rather generous for a car of this nature making it great for long weekends away or even for everyday use. This has been achieved by separating the roof’s storage compartment from the trunk space. A number of convertibles, particularly those with metal rather than cloth retracting roofs, tend to lie flat in the trunk when retracted, taking up space that could have otherwise been used for suitcases and other loads. Inside it’s business as usual: cut-glass buttons with haptic feedback that vibrate to touch, a swooping center console and large-screen touch-sensitive infotainment display. Aston Martin has also introduced new trim designs for the Volante but with its Q branch bespoke arm up and running, the sky’s the limit as to what clients can specify in terms of wood veneers, leather and other internal and external features.

MBUSA sees 9.8% jump as volumes for the year reach 128,730 MONTVALE, N.J, June 3 – Mercedes-Benz USA (MBUSA) today reported another month of record highs with sales reaching 27,359, an 8.3% increase over May 2012. Sales volumes at Mercedes-Benz jumped 9.8% last month (24,713), bringing year-todate totals for the brand to a record high of 117,535. Sprinter Van year-to-date Raymond Orosa of Mercedessales increased 5.3% from Benz of Encino the same time last year to 7,517, combining with steady momentum from smart at 3,678 to round out MBUSA’s year-to-date totals of 128,730. “We’ve seen five consecutive months of best-ever sales in 2013,” said Steve Cannon, president and CEO of MBUSA. “Strong momentum carries across the entire product line from our entry models straight up to the high end, which is ahead 24 percent for the year. We expect to build on that pace as more of our completely redesigned E-Class models roll into dealer showrooms.” The highest Mercedes-Benz volume performers for May were the C-, E- and M-Class model lines. The CClass – the sporty gateway to the brand for younger and first-time Mercedes-Benz buyers – led sales at 8,013 units, up 20.5% from May 2012. Sales of the E-Class, which

receives a complete redesign for 2014 and is now arriving in dealerships, followed at 4,930. MBUSA’s top-selling SUV, the M-Class, rounded out the top three with sales of 3,219. Strong performers at the high end included the company’s flagship S-Class, up 16.4%, and the award winning GL-Class SUV which increased 41.0% over the same period last year. The Sprinter model line posted sales of 1,828 for the month, while smart saw a 16.4% boost in sales volume totaling 818 units. Sales of the company’s BlueTEC diesel models were 1,503 for the month, up 47.5% from the same period last year. On the high-performance side, AMG model sales finished the month of May at 536. Separately, through the Mercedes-Benz Certified PreOwned (MBCPO) program, MBUSA sold 8,113 vehicles in May; an increase of 24.2% when compared to May 2012 (sales of 6,534 vehicles). On a year-to-date basis, MBCPO sold 41,231 vehicles, an increase of 25.6% over the comparable period (with sales of 32,826 vehicles). As far as any Mercedes-Benz is concerned, you’ll always get the best deals at the Mercedes-Benz of Encino because of our kababayans led by Raymond Orosa, Internet Manager of Mercedes-Benz of Encino. Having been working with Mercedes-Benz cars for over three years, the highly experienced Raymond says MercedesBenz of Encino is one of the best dealerships he’s ever worked with. “We have the best team here,” Raymond says. “Everyone is very friendly, extremely professional and

here to help you with whatever you need.” Raymond also shares that the popular dealership gets plenty of Filipino customers. “We get lots of Filipino nurses, doctor’s assistants and the like,” Raymond says. “Filipinos are great customers. They’re very quiet, easy to work with and they come out with great MercedesBenz cars.” The key to the dealership’s success with their clientele is the quality of their customer service and the long lasting relationships the dealership forms with their customers. Raymond also shares that Mercedes-Benz of Encino has an amazing selection that cannot be beat. For example, their C Class cars alone have over 100 colors available! The dealership has three locations just to house all of their available cars, and the dealership itself is a seven story building. “We have enough inventory to last us a long time,” Raymond laughs. “Some people think it’s impossible to own a MercedesBenz but that’s not true,” Raymond stresses. “We’re here to help put you in the car of your dreams. “Just point out which car you want to drive and I’ll give you the best available deal on it.” So what are you waiting for? Visit your kababayan Raymond Orosa, who speaks Tagalog, at Mercedes-Benz of Encino located at 16721 Ventura Blvd., Encino, CA 91436. Give Raymond a call toll Free at 888.898.8996 today.

big step in winning over drivers hooked on the convenience of refueling vehicles that run on petrol. Tesla last month said that Musk would invest $100 million in the surging electric car maker, and that it would repay a loan from the US Department of Energy ahead of schedule. The California maker of high-priced electric vehicles said it would launch a new stock offering of some 2.7 million shares along with $450 million in convertible notes to raise fresh capital. Musk was to purchase $45 million in common shares and another $55 million in a private share placement, the company said. Tesla said it expected to raise some $830 million and use the proceeds to prepay a loan from the US Department of Energy. The moves came amid a stunning surge in the value of Tesla, which has just a tiny share of the US car market but turned a profit for the first time in the past quarter. Tesla shares were up slightly Tuesday to Wednesday to $102.83. The shares have more than doubled this year after struggling through 2012 on production delays and questions about whether it could turn a profit. On May 8, the California-based firm announced $11 million in net income for the first quarter as revenues rose 83 percent from the prior quarter to $562 million. Tesla cited strong global demand for its $62,000-$87,000 Model S, saying it is receiving orders at a rate of more than 20,000 per year worldwide, adding that it seen “significant upside potential in Europe and Asia.” Although Tesla has been on the upswing, the road has grown bumpier for the electric car market.

Next generation Toyota Corolla unveiled with extravaganza of experiential events Santa Monica, Calif. (June 7, 2013) – Dramatic sights, sounds and tastes helped introduce the strikingly re-styled 11th generation Toyota Corolla at a packed celebration inside Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, Calif. on Thursday night. More than 750 consumers, journalists and Toyota guests took in a captivating theatrical performance by Fuerza Bruta, fog clouds from celebrity Manhattan Beach Toyota chef Richard Blais’s liquid Gen. Sales Manager Noel de Belen nitrogen cocktails, and the capstone reveal of the 2014 Corolla lowered from the rafters with a surprise visit from comedian Adam Carolla. The multi-sensory experiences celebrated an iconic compact vehicle with nearly 50 years of success and almost 40 million global sales. The sleeker, more advanced 2014 Corolla features chiseled, modern character lines, a more premium interior, improved fuel economy and an enhanced driving performance. Each trim level (L, LE, LE Eco, and S) will offer a range of popular features designed to delight current Toyota customers and attract new, youthful buyers. “Full of surprises and unexpected features, this global reveal event captured the new era and elevated experience of the redesigned Corolla,” said Bill Fay, group vice president and general manager, Toyota Division. “As our second best-selling vehicle and a familiar sight on American roadways, the new Corolla retains its trusted quality and reliability while adding an exciting new look and energy.” At the beginning of the evening, guests sampled innovative culinary creations including roasted pork belly with licorice grits and pickled peaches from Blais’s custom menu. Blais, who recently published his first cook-

book, Try This at Home, is perhaps best known from his appearance on Season 4 of Bravo’s hit show “Top Chef” and his winning run on “Top Chef All-Stars,” for which he received his own Corolla among other prizes Partnering with Los Angeles gourmet catering company Along Came Mary, Blais prepared items in front of guests, including the fog-inducing liquid nitrogen margaritas. After tasting from each culinary station, guests were ushered into a newly revealed second space where the first of three viscerally stimulating Fuerza Bruta acts began. Fuerza Bruta (“brute force” in Spanish) is a critically acclaimed, live experience show first founded in Argentina then introduced in New York City in 2007. Elevated above the guests, some in tanks of water, the performers put on a 30-minute, high-energy acrobatic show. As a finale to the spectacular performance, a 2014 Corolla descended from the ceiling while three additional new Corollas appeared from a hidden space, surprising and delighting guests with their new design. With a new longer wheelbase and roomier premium interior, the new Corolla offers a collection of enhanced features including standard LED headlamps and Bluetooth connectivity, along with available touchscreen audio, backup monitor, Smart Key, paddle shifters and Entune, Toyota’s multimedia app suite. During Fay’s brief remarks about the Corolla, car enthusiast and comedian Carolla interrupted from the side of the stage and joined to joke about being the “oldest Corolla in the room,” referring the similarities of the vehicle name and the comedian’s own last name . Carolla further described growing up in a working class community in the 1970s and 1980s and the value of the Corolla to many friends and families. Representing that era was a 1969 Corolla, from the Toyota Museum in Torrance, Calif. In addition, three other vintage Corollas from the museum were on dis-

play, including models from 1971, 1983 and 1987. At the conclusion of the presentation, DJs The Hood Internet kicked off music while guests were encouraged to explore and view the 2014 Corolla models. If you are reading this, most likely you own a Toyota or want to own a new Toyota car. Of course, at Manhattan Beach Toyota – one of the dealerships that made Toyota USA the Number 1 retailer in the month of March – you can get your favorite Toyota vehicle, whether it’s a Prius other fuel efficient vehicles are available, the flagship Avalon, America’s favorite family car the Camry, the hardworking Corolla and many other Toyota vehicles, our kababayan Noel de Belen can be of big help.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;As the series went on, he realized that was the shot that was going to be open and in the biggest game, the biggest moment, those are the shots that he hit,â&#x20AC;? Spoelstra said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And those were the difference tonight.â&#x20AC;? The Heat needed a miraculous comeback to win game six in overtime against the Spurs to earn the title, which takes its place alongside Miamiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2012 and 2006 championships over Oklahoma City and Dallas respectively. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are just getting started,â&#x20AC;? Heat guard Mario Chalmers said. James said winning feels great but doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get any easier. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Last year when I was sitting up here, with my first championship, I said it was the toughest thing I had ever done,â&#x20AC;? James said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This year Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll tell last year I was absolutely wrong. This was the toughest championship right here, between the two. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I mean, everything that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been through this post-season, especially in these finals. We were down every odd game. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were scratching for our lives in game six, down five with 28 seconds to go. To be able to win that game and force a game seven is a true testament of our perseverance and us being able to handle adversity throughout everything.â&#x20AC;?
