NFA strengthens palay procurement drive to stabilize prices By RUBY LEONORA R. BALISTOY
MALAYBALAY City -- The National Food Authority (NFA), here, has intensified its palay procurement drive and continued to advise farmers to sell their produce to NFA, which buys it at a higher price. Cirilo Polinar, Provincial Manager, said NFA buys palay under the subsidized
scheme at P17.00 per kilo plus farmers’ incentive of 70 centavos (P.70) per kilo for transport, drying and cooperative development that sums up to P17.70 per kilo. He said the prevailing palay buying prices in major trading centers in the province have so far increased to as high as P16.50 to 17.00 per kilo as local grains traders
moved to level off with the agency’s subsidized buying system. “NFAs procurement program aims to equalize the grains supply and prices,” he also said. Palay buying prices in Bukidnon have stabilized during the past weeks as the NFAs intensified palay procurement drive continues to
gain ground in the province. Moreover, palay traders, he said, were forced to adjust their buying prices to compete with the rising palay deliveries in NFA buying stations. “We have enough funds for the agency’s subsidized procurement program and intends to accommodate all palay deliveries to our buying
stations,” added Polinar. NFA Bukidnon earlier set its procurement target at 122,000 bags this year. “We have three (3) palay buying stations in the province located in Maramag town, Barangay Aglayan in Malaybalay, and Valencia City, which have a total capacity of 500,000 bags,” he said.
He also cited that these warehouses are located within various commercial or trading centers in the province. “As a government entity, NFA will continue to be at the forefront of the country’s rice marketing to ensure stability in the supply and prices of its staple cereals,” Polinar said. pia-10

This act, according to Ray Espinosa, PLDT regulatory affairs and policy chief, clearly constitutes “combination in restraint of trade.” “It is Globe who must explain to the government and the public why it should not be held liable for being an active party in an arrangement—exclusively in Ayala malls—which clearly constitutes combination in restraint of trade.

The Globe exclusivity in the Ayala malls falls squarely within the scope of EO [Executive Order] 45. It is time for Globe to account for its illegal arrangements,” Espinosa said. The EO aims to protect consumers from abusive and fraudulent business practices, promote transparency and level the playing field in the market. Meanwhile, at the hearing conducted by the National Telecommunications Commission on Thursday, Espinosa said Globe’s legal counsel has resorted to slanderous statements in describing as incompetent the witnesses of PLDT and Digital Telecommunications Philippines Inc. Espinosa said all of PLDT’s four witnesses were competent and testified truthfully. Also, PLDT and Digitel, he said, properly presented the sale and purchase agreement, which, under rules of procedure constitutes the best evidence to establish the transaction. globe/PAGE 12

Commune with nature at the Lasang By Maricel Casino-Rivera
If your idea of paradise is a retreat to the blissful spectacle of an unspoiled nature park with magnificent ancient trees and spectacular views, the Lasang Secret Adventure Park can it make it real.
The Lasang is located in the western part of Misamis Oriental, a vibrant and progressive province in the northern coast of Mindanao. It is a 40-minute ride away from the capital city Cagayan de Oro and just a few kilometers from the forthcoming Laguindingan airport which is currently being constructed. The Lasang Secret Adventure allows nature lovers to explore the inner sanctum of the Initao-Libertad Nature Park, the home to century-old trees and endangered species which

Her mother, Jeanifer is a housekeeper and her father, Manuel has just resigned as a machine operator because of illness. In spite of the circumstances, since Manuel is not working anymore he uses his time to review his lessons in preparation for the teacher’s board exam. Kyla’s parents are very positive and are still striving for the family to make ends meet. Early in the morning, they cook viand and sell it to their neighbors.

granted full school year educational assistance. This includes tuition fees, book and uniform allowance, and a monthly stipend. Scholarship grants for this school year amount to more than half a million pesos. Now on its second year of implementation, the scholarship program already provided educational grants to 14 students (i.e. eight high school and six college students) last school year. Performance of the 2010 scholars was generally satisfactory. The scholars for both school years all come from small IP communities
include tarsiers and monkeys, monitor lizards, flying lemurs and megapodes. R are birds are als o found in the Lasang like the imperial pigeons (bawod), native doves (alimokon), emerald doves (manatad), and serpent eagles. One who would like to shun the dust and noise in the city may find solitude as one walks on a long stretch of boardwalk surrounded by talisay gubat trees and experience serenity amid God’s wonderful creations. The Lasang offers a rare opportunity to commune with nature and enjoy the gentle kiss of forest breeze as one ascends the long and winding hundred-meter high staircase. For the thrill seekers who would like to conquer their fears, they may tread along the canopy walk and touch ground through the 120-meter zip line. If you find a city hotel unfit for corporate workshops, trainings and team building programs, the Lasang Eco-lodge is the place to be. The Provincial Government of Misamis Oriental under the watch of Gov. Oscar S. Moreno is presently constructing a restaurant with function rooms designed to cater to domestic and foreign trav-

We are very happy because it helps us to buy notebooks, pens, papers and other school supplies we needed in school,” she joyfully cited. Also, Kyla said that her parents are religiously complying to the set conditions of the program. Seeing the positive attitude of her parents, Kyla is more determined to continue getting good grades. She is now aiming to get higher than the 3rd rank as what she garnered in Grade V. Observant as she was, Kyla also mentioned the need to correct the misspelled surname of her father’s birth certificate. Being a responsible child, according to her adviser, Kyla will possibly harvest what she has planted and will reap success in the future. Written by Ruchell L.

tegic location of Misamis Oriental makes the province a major transport and transshipment hub in the upper half of Mindanao.

Its capital city Cagayan de Oro serves as a convergence point for commerce, education and ser vices with most of the regional line agencies, banks and financing institutions and the best colleges and universities in Mindanao are located. The potential in the tourism industry in Misamis Oriental is at its peak as industrial development continue to gain momentum in anticipation of the s o on - to - b e - c ompl e te d Laguindingan airport. Misamis Oriental also prides itself with superior infrastructure compared to other areas in Mindanao with good weather all year round.

Battling boredom THINK a minute… Did you ever really want something, like a promotion or new job, a good education, or a new house? But then after you got it, it got old and didn’t give you the satisfaction you expected. It wasn’t what you thought it would be, so you’re left still wanting something more. You’re bored and restless. And you wonder: “Is this really all there is to look forward to? Is this all I can expect in life?” When you’re bored and unsatisfied there’s nothing in life that’s really worth your full energy and time. No challenge. No real purpose or passion for living. Nothing really excites you or turns you
on anymore. “It takes more and more to get less and less.” Well, guess what? You’re normal! We human beings were made for such a high level of living and productivity that it’s easy for us to get bored. And no one knows it better than our Maker Himself. That’s why He gives us expectations and challenges that will push us to reach our full potential. Animals can be satisfied just to eat, sleep, run around a little, and call that successful living. But we humans can’t do that. We were made for much more. This is why Jesus Christ says we can only find a full life when we give it away—by loving Him and others. We were
created to give and make a difference in the world with our own unique abilities and personality. That’s the only way we can ever be truly happy and satisfied. So it’s only logical that your Maker is the One Who can show you how to find and fill your special place in this world. He’s the One Who can give you something to do in life that’s worth your time and abilities. Something that will make a difference in the lives of people around you. Are you fully satisfied with your life? Do you really love how you’re living? Today, why not ask Jesus to take full control of your life every day? He can give you a
purpose and passion for living that will enable you to win your battle with boredom. Just think a minute…
Local ingredients better than Chinese THERE has been so much fuss on how Pilipino food ingredients can replace Chinese made food essentials which has invaded the Philippines since the global trade liberalization under the General Agreement of Tariff and Trades or GATT was conceived? What used to be our culinary domain in the Asian hemisphere has been influenced and taken over by the Hongkong, Macau and Cantonese cuisines from oriental China? With Chinese ingredients flooding the supermarket shelves and grocery stores in Manila, Singapore and Malaysia. The World Trade Organization (WTO) an umbrella arm of the IMF which influenced nations to dumped protectionism and opens their country to the powerful and developed country’s exports. Trade liberalizations are economic tools of powerful countries dictated to the poorer countries to be able to dump their product. It is leverage in granting foreign loans and economic aid. As in the case of China, they represent the most powerful country in our region. They sell everything to the Philippines not only from sewing needles but to
battleships, cars, appliances and from food to ingredients. Were Filipinos misled into patronizing sodium and mono sulfate laden food concoctions? Sometimes in 2008, dairies, powdered milk and chocolates processed in China captured world attention and international headlines that it was treated with melamine, a paint chemical ingredient used as preservative to prolong the life span of canned food products. Melamine is also a chemical used in large dosage in embalming the dead in the funeral parlors. Of course the Chinese government and their food exports paid a price in terms of losses and after their investigation into the incident; a Health Minister was convicted for negligence and sentenced to death by firing squad to appease the world. That was long after the reported death of children and outbreak of kidney damage to those who have consumed the milk and the chocolates. Look around along Ongpin Street in Binondo, Manila; Chinese vegetables passed and sold as organic are smuggled into the country have long displaced the vegetable supplies from Benguet and Bukidnon giving unfair price competition in
the market. Container load of onions and garlic reached as far as Mindanao for as long as there is a port of entry. These vegetables will finally land in many household kitchens. We s h ou l d s e e h ow Chinese farmers in Fujian Province cultivate their vegetables fertilized with human excrete and shipped to the Philippines and other Asian countries. How onions, mushrooms, corn and animals treated with embryo culture for faster and growth propagation was recently discovered by the University of the Philippines, College of Agricultural studies as cancigenous? Compare it to the Philippines agricultural product which must hurdle ISO Standards before we could qualify entry to Japan, Middle East and the US Mainland. Our produce passes the Hazard Analysis Critical Control Procedures or HACCP before it goes to the export market. Under a stringent control of the international standards certification board that assures consumers of the hygienic quality of every food product. We are a poor country that should pass in the eye of the needle before our exports and those consumed locally could be stamped of quality
assurance. Many food essentials and delicacies in the Philippines such as Bagoong which is made in Pangasinan. Patis from Navotas and Malabon. Mangoes, from Guimaras, Peanut Kisses and Kalamay from Bohol and the preserved Durians of Davao and Marawi City could easily fill in the vacuum of any China made product and food ingredients should we go back to trade protectionism against China in the light of Chinese aggression in the Spratly Islands? Mu s h r o o m s , a h i g h source of protein is abundantly piddled along Alai in Mambatangan and beyond the eyes can see, the pineapple plantations and the vegetables farms of Bukidnon grows everything that we can quiamjot/PAGE 11
handling the collection of accounts shall disclose his/her full name and true identity to the card holder. This directive covers both in-house collectors and third-party collection agents. Put in mind, however, that you can always avoid the embarrassment of having to deal with debt payment if you contact your credit card company immediately should you find yourself having trouble paying your bills. Try to work out a modified payment plan that would reduce your payables to a more manageable level. Do not wait until your accounts get turned over to a collecting agent. The BSP’s Financial Consumer Affairs Group (FCAG)
advises the public to report unscrupulous collection practices and other creditcard related concerns via telephone numbers (632) 7087087 or (632) 524-7011 local 2584, fax number (632) 5258930, or e-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org.
Unfair Collection Practices EVER received threatening phone calls from a credit card collection agent? How about calls during the wee hours of the morning or in the middle of the night? Worry not, the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) actually has existing regulations that prohibit credit card issuers and their collection agents from engaging in unfair collection practices. According to the BSP, credit card issuers and their collection agents should observe good faith and refrain from engaging in unscrupulous acts that would harass and humiliate the credit card holder. In a recent public advisory, the BSP enumerated the following instances of unfair
collection practices: • The use of threat or violence or other criminal means to harm the physical person, reputation, or property of any person; • The use of obscenities, insults, or profane language which amount to a criminal act or offense under applicable laws; • Disclosure of the names of credit card holders who allegedly refuse to pay debts; • Threat to take any action that cannot legally be taken; • C ommunicating or threat to communicate to any person credit information which is known to be false, including failure to communicate that a debt is being disputed;
• Any false representation or deceptive means to collect or attempt to collect any debt or to obtain information concerning a card holder; and • Making contact at unreasonable or inconvenient times or hours which the BSP defines as “contact before 6:00 a.m. or after 10:00 p.m., unless the account is past due for more than sixty (60) days, or the card holder has given express permission (that he or she be contacted), or said times are the only reasonable or convenient opportunities for contact.” BSP Circular No. 702, dated 15 December 2010, specifies that banks or quasibanks and their subsidiary/ affiliate credit card compa-
nies should inform their card holders of the endorsement of the collection of their account to a collection agency or agent at least seven days before the actual endorsement. This also applies in the event of a bank or credit card company’s endorsement of a card holder’s account from one collection agency/agent to another. The notification shall include the full name of the collection agency and its contact details, according to the BSP circular. Banks or quasi-banks and their subsidiary/affiliate credit card companies are also directed to adopt policies and procedures to ensure that the personnel
Sugar, anyone? (First of two series) DIABETES mellitus is a silent killer disease. In a period of ten years, covering 1986 to 1995, there was a notable increase in the number of cases, with a marked 92% rise. Currently, there are approximately 3 million Filipinos who are diagnosed cases of Diabetes. The World Health organization projects that by year 2030, the number will rise to 7.8 million! The more common of the two types ( Type 1, and Type 2 ) is Type 2, which is insulin insensitive and is common among adults , with a genetic predisposition and closely linked to those patients with a family history of the disease, obesity and those persons who are hypertensive, and with high cholesterol and triglycerides levels. Likewise, this type is likely to occur in persons who have a sedentary lifestyle and physical inactivity. The disease may come to one’s attention usually when it has caused some damage to the different organs of the body already.

eat rather than the produce from China that our diet really do not need. An Economic adviser of former President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo, have voiced out his suggestion in front of a televised forum with regards to the recent flash point in the Spratly Islands on how to counter Chinese aggression in the Western Philippines seas off Palawan. Albay Gov. Joey Salceda articulated that the Philippines should boycott Chinese made products which are flooding the Pilipino market. Of course as an economist, the governor knows what he is talking about? It is from his logic that China which is a voracious oil consuming nation in the world could be the reason and major culprit why oil prices are sky rocketing? They consumed and corner so much Middle East oil and world Coal supply to fuel their industries.

The most common manifestations would be: frequent urination, which usually disturbs one’s sleep, thirst, weight loss, weakness and fatigue. As the disease progresses, there may be blurring of vision, tingling or numbness of the hands, feet, and difficulty in healing or even non healing of wounds. It is said that the occurrence of these signs and symptoms may mean that the diabetes has been there undetected and has been going on for no less than 5 years! The mainstay in the diagnosis is the physical examination and history of the patient. Meaning, once the above signs and symptoms If Asians and the world stop buying Chinese products, their manufacturing activities will slow down and China’s appetite for oil will be lessened. Disrupt their economy and they will stop hunting for more gas and fuel reserves in the Scarborough Shoals beyond their continental shelves. Maybe, President PNoy need not sent the World War 2nd vintage warship, the Rajah Humabon at all as a show of force? It is easier for Filipinos to stop eating Chinese noodles, Peking Duck and Chinese stir fried vegetables seasoned with oysters sauce than go to war. Should the world stop
are present, then there is that initial impression of the disease. This is then supported by certain laboratory examinations. The most common and frequently requested for, is the fasting blood sugar. This is best taken after a 6 to 8 hour fast overnight. If, the test is taken once and the result is abnormal, meaning level is above the normal value (which varies from laboratory to laboratory, depending on the method used), then it would be wise to repeat the test again before labeling one as a diabetic. However, if one is already diagnosed as a diabetic, the most important test for monitoring the glucose level, would be the Glycosylated Hemoglobin or what we call as HBA1C. The rationale for this particular test is that, glucose is attached to the hemoglobin molecule and since the lifespan of the red cells is 90 days, the result of the HBA1C is better reflective of what is truly the status of the sugar levels in the blood. patronizing Chinese products, then Beijing will be back sooner into their old bamboo curtains?

Trees are nature’s soldiers TREES are nature’s soldiers in the war against global warming. Mother Nature is a vindictive female. If maltreated, she will retaliate by depriving her abusers of her protective mantle. We pay a high penalty for disobedience to the laws of nature. When we cut down big trees without replacing the loss with young seedlings, this is tantamount to killing the trees. It is a heinous crime against the environment. Last week I stood at a mountaintop in Pualas and gazed at the neighboring mountains with mournful eyes. They were bald, sad and prophetic; the result of rapacious logging. The denuded mountains prophesy a doomsday scenario for our brutalized planet. They are sending an urgent distress signal to us earthlings to save, revive and protect Mother Earth. We cannot leave it to our government or to rich nations to fight the war of climate change. Al Gore’s “An Inconvenient Truth” is our personal battle also. It is one thing to agree, to discuss, to plan, to strategize. It’s another thing to roll up our sleeves, get down and dirty, and to actually grasp
the muck in our immaculate hands in order to plant a tree. The Y.M.C.A. Cagayan de Oro Chapter composed of idealistic but not-so-young men, together with the Philippine Air Force Tactical Operations Group-10, trekked to the mountains of Pualas for a tree planting activity in support of the YMCA Green Day and the World Environment Day. These YMCA and PAF tree planters proved that dirty is in their vocabulary. The kneeling and squatting activity to grow trees for one of the balding mountains of Pualas, owned by YMCA, earned our macho men some gastronomic rewards. The ever gallant gentleman and my husband, Jun Suan, sponsored a cholesterol-rich luncheon at our modest vacation getaway, situated also in Pualas. Tree planting articles are written by fools like me, but only God can make a tree. We were not put on this earth just to occupy space and consume its resources. If we have nothing else to bequeath, let’s at least leave behind our little gift of fresh air and cool shade from the trees we have planted. My ambition is to plant 10 trees for every book I own.
This translates to 5,000 trees I should plant in my lifetime. It’s only fair because the pages of my thought-provoking “friends” are the product of trees. You may not be a book lover, but if you are a car owner you can plant a tree for every 500 liters of gasoline your car consumes. It’s only right because the toxic carbon dioxide from the fumes of your “baby” is absorbed by trees and converted into clean oxygen. The heat is on. The challenge is thrown. We are all called to put in our share in the environmental war effort. We are helpless to stop a tsunami, but we can at least plant a tree!

“This was not controverted or objected to by Globe. What Globe’s legal counsel wanted was for the witnesses to testify on matters not covered by their respective direct examinations. This is prohibited and barred by the rules of procedure. When PLDT’s and Digitel’s legal counsel rightly and correctly objected to his questions based on the rules of procedure, Globe’s legal counsel branded them incompetent. That was unfair and below the belt. This black tactic only shows the sheer desperation of Globe,” Espinosa said.

DA 10 strongly campaigns for Good Animal Husbandry Practices (GAHP) Cagayan de Oro City--The creation and the formulation of the Code of Good Animal Husbandry Practices by the Bureau of Agriculture and Fisheries Product Standards (BAFPS) has become the basis of the Department of Agriculture Regional Field Unit 10 to intensely campaign for these standards all over the region. Recently the Department of Agriculture Regional Field Unit 10 through the Agribusiness and Marketing Assistance Division (AMAD) conducted an awareness seminar on Good Animal Husbandry Practices based on the Code. This aims to introduce and shed light on the given set of quality standards for the guidance of the stakeholders. Good Animal Husbandry Practices (GAHP) sets out general principles and minimum requirements in the commercial or backyard rearing or farming of animals for food use. Its main objective is to ensure that the farming practices of the establishment provide greater confidence in the consumers’ expectations that the final products are safe and fit for human consumption while ensuring health safety and comfort to both the farm workers and the animals, without any degradation to the environment. Additionally GAHP’s certification objectives enumerates five main goals; first is to increase the market access of animal products both in the local and foreign markets, second is to empower farmers to respond to the demands of consumers that specific criteria in the trade of goods to achieve food safety and quality
be met, third is to facilitate farmer adoption of sustainable agricultural practices, fourth is to enable consumers exercise the option of buying quality meat and meat products from traceable and certified sources and lastly to facilitate disease control program. Because of some forces driving demand for food safety GAHP certification is encouraged by the department. Driving forces for food safety varies from consumer lifestyles to increased global trade and free trade as well as government policies touching on food safety and hygiene laws to promote and protect the health of the population. The demand for quality and food safety systems will eventually lead businesses in the supply chain back to the farmer to implement quality and food safety systems. All consumers expect protection from hazards accruing along the entire food chain from primary producer to the consumer, this is often described as the farm to table continuum. Protection expected by consumers will only happen if these minimum requirements set out in the standard of Good Animal Husbandry Practices are complied by animal and backyard raisers of animals for food consumption. The application for certification of GAHP however is voluntary and this is for free; for those stakeholders who are interested to be certified as GAHP compliant, criteria for compliance are the following; 1.compliance to Good Animal Husbandry Practices ( GAHP) as set out by the standards created by BAFPS; 2. Implementa-
tion of biosecurity measures and transparent and traceable systems; 3.documentation of farm management at least two (2) years of farm records and if in case new farms are applying at least 6 months of farm records. The GAHP certificate shall be valid for 2 years upon issuance , however initial certificate issued shall be good for one (1) year. Renewal of the certificate shall be done one (1) month prior to the expiration of the certificate. Upon the receipt of the renewal request an inspection shall be done within thirty (30) days. Interested applicants may send their letter of intent requesting certification addressed to the Regional Executive Director of the Department of Agriculture and the agency will then endorse the said letter to BAFPS central office for further action. The GAHP awareness seminar was attended by provincial and city veterinarians and their representatives including our city agricultural officers
and provincial agricultural officers, animal and livestock raisers and poultry integrators as well as officers of local government units attached agencies of DA and representatives of the academe. It was completed by the panel of lecturers and experts coming from the Bureau of Agriculture and Fisheries Product Standards, Bureau of Animal Industry and National Meat Inspection Service, all from the Central Offices.

Solon calls for metallic ore export ban SURIGAO del Norte Rep. Francisco Matugas has filed House Bill 4808 banning the export of iron, nickel, chromite, manganese and other strategic metallic ores from his district and other areas in the country. He said instead of bringing such types of products out of the country, the government should promote the development of mineral processing plants in the localities. Rep. Matugas finds this to answer the clamor of the people to maximize the use of the resources in the mineral – rich provinces like Surigao del Norte.

Ecosec speaks on agri-tourism ECONOMIC Planning Secretary Cayetano Paderanga said that Caraga Region, which he calls as Northeastern Mindanao Region, will be the key area for the Philippine Tourism Plan. He further said officials of the region must consider to exploit the agri-potential of the area.

Paderanga also enjoined the national and local government units to join hands to get infra investments and realize infra interventions that the Caraga Region needs.

Davao Tourism Council chair Mary Ann Montemayor said as indicated in its first quarter report on Davao City Hotel Occupancy Report from January to March 2011, it showed a total of 872 Chinese nationals visited the city for the first quarter this year compared to the same period in 2010 with only 767 arrivals. Montemayor said the China market ranked fifth among the top five foreign markets here with the United States leading the list with 4,460, followed by Japan, 2,674, Korea, 1,055, and Australia, 1,018. Total visitor arrivals within that period accounted to 179,785. Of this figure, 160,673 are domestic while
19,020, foreign. Total arrivals last quarter indicated a 14 percent increase as against last year’s figure of same period to only 157,147, she said. Meanwhile, Montemayor saw the potential of the China market considering the volume of these travelers yearly. Citing figure sourced out from the Philippine Tourism Attache in Beijing, she said in the first quarter of 2011 alone, an 18 percent increase was reported for Chinese nationals from Beijing travelling to the Philippines. The report, she said also indicated an outbound Chinese tourists of one million.

$34 billion, up from last year’s $22.8 billion. Forbes said a 27% uptick in the stock exchange’s composite index lifted the fortunes of the country’s richest to an all time high. It said there are now 11 billionaires in the Philippines this year, compared to only 5 last year. Forbes compiles the list based on information from individuals, stock exchanges, public documents and analysts as well as estimates of the privately held assets of the businessmen. The minimum net worth to make the list this year increased to $85 million, up from $50 million previously. For the fourth year in a row, Sy remained the Philippines’ richest man with a net worth of $7.2 billion, up from $5 billion last year. Forbes said shares in SM Investments, the Sy family’s largest asset, is up nearly 40%. Sy’s listed property developer Belle Corp. is expected to open its first casino in Manila in 2012. Second on the list is tycoon Lucio Tan with an estimated $2.8 billion in assets, up from $2.1 billion in 2010. The 77-year-old tycoon owns a bevy of businesses which include Fortune Tobacco, Asia Brewery, and Hong-Kong based Eton Properties. Third on the list is JG Summit founder John Gokongwei Jr. The 83-year-old is worth $2.4 billion, up from his net worth last year of $1.5 billion. Fourth on the list is Alliance Global Group’s Andrew Tan with an estimated net worth of $2 billion from last year’s $1.2 billion. Fifth on the list is 90-yearold construction manage David Consunji, who has an estimated net worth of $1.9 billion from last year’s $715 million. “He moved into top 5 as shares of his DMCI Holdings more than doubled in past year. Value of Semirara Mining nearly tripled,” Forbes said. Below is the Philippines billionaires list: 1. Henry Sy--$7.2 billion 2. Lucio Tan--$2.8 billion 3. John Gokongwei Jr.--$2.4 billion 4.

Roberto Ongpin--$1.3 billion 10. George Ty--$1.1 billion 11. Tony Tan Caktiong--$1 billion Forbes said the biggest gainer in percentage terms is former trade minister Roberto Ongpin, whose fortune soared more than fourfold to $1.3 billion. Forbes said most of that gain was thanks to an increase in his stake in listed miner Atok-Big Wedge, “though Ongpin says the company’s stock price overinflates its value.” Forbes, meanwhile, listed 4 newcomers to the richest list. They are: Jose Antonio, founder of highend property developer Century Properties; Jacinto Ng Sr., founder of biscuit maker Rebisco; and

from page 1 of the third regulatory period, the ERC approved annual revenues for Cepalco. These annual revenues consist of the amounts approved by the ERC representing Cepalco’s efficient operating costs, including taxes and duties other than income tax, return on its invested capital, depreciation allowance, under recoveries for the previous regulatory period, and net efficiency adjustments. A regulatory weighted average cost of capital (WACC) of 14.97 percent was used by the ERC to calculate the allowable return on capital for Cepalco. The WACC is significantly lower than the 16.27 percent used in Cepalco’s previous rate reset application. The ERC disallowed certain projects in Cepalco’s proposed capital expenditures since these were deemed not necessary for the efficient provision of distribution services and not based upon available prices in the international markets. These, together with system efficiencies, contributed to a significant reduction on Cepalco’s return on capital component of the approved revenues vis-a-vis its proposed application. In a Cepalco released press statement, it said the ERC, in the Final Determination, adopted a more stringent Performance Incentive Scheme than that proposed by Cepalco geared towards strict adherence to the approved
performance indicators. It is also meant to provide Cepalco with corresponding incentives to improve its services to customers. With the issuance of the Final Determination, Cepalco, the country’s third largest power distributor, can now translate the approved MAP of P1.2491/kWh for 2012 into rate schedules for its different customer classes and file its application with the ERC for approval. Upon approval of these revised rate schedules, Cepalco can start charging the lower rates to its customers, the statement said. “The decreasing price trend on the third regulatory period for Cepalco is a good signal that the benefit of adopting the PRB rate-setting methodology is now taking effect. The PBR has put pressure on the utilities to improve their systems and be more efficient in their operations We are optimistic that the consumers will continue to enjoy the benefit of the PBR in terms of quality and reliable service and more affordable electricity rates,” ERC Chairperson and CEO Zenaida G. Cruz-Ducut said in the statement.

Commission on Indigenous Peoples (NCIP), Dept. of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), Environment Management Bureau (EMB) and National Water
Resources Board (NWRB) should be secured by the proponent.” Mr. Pacampara said the proponent should also secure the endorsements from the pertinent Local Government Units (Provinces of Bukidnon and North Cotabato, Municipality of Kibawe and two barangays). Pulangui V is located in the southern part of Bukidnon covering the municipalities of Kitaotao, Dangcagan, Kibawe and Damulog. It is some 40 kilometers downstream of the existing Pulangui IV HEP power house while its dam site would be located in the municipality of Pres. Roxas, North Cotabato. The plant will have three units of 100 MW each. It involves the construction of river diversion facilities, dams, embankment and reservoir filling and commissioning. A 20-kilometer double circuit 138kV transmission line would link it to an existing main substation in Kibawe. Greenergy’s revised project cost is P33-billion to be financed by still unidentified strategic partners willing to finance the project. It is estimated to have a project timeline of 69 months from the award of the main construction contract to the commissioning. The RDC-10 Infracom co-chaired by Ozamiz City
Mayor Nova Princess E. Parojinog-Echavez and Engr. Modesto Mabaylan (private sector representative), found the project to be financially viable with an incremental net present value of PhP 237.48 billion and financial internal rate of return (FIRR) of 25.35 percent, higher than the project’s weighted average cost of capital (WACC) of 6.6 percent. It also passed the financial sensitivity analysis under the worst case scenario with a 19.69 percent FIRR. The project was originally proposed by the National Power Corporation (Napocor) in 1991 but had to repeatedly defer the implementation of the project due to the power crisis in 1991, the 1997 Asian financial crisis, and eventually gave up on the project in 2001 with the passage of the EPIRA Law. In 2009, Greenergy Development Corporation initiated the revalidation of the feasibility study, prioritizing the Hydrology and Water Flow tests in coordination with the National Water Resource Board (NWRD) and National Irrigation Administration (NIA). Greenergy is engaged in energy and power sector consultancy, FS preparation, environmental impact assessment, and founded in 2009 by Engr. Cerael C. Donggay, CEO and President. Mr. Donggay was the former Vice President for Mindanao of Napocor.

Congess okays Mercury Exposure Information Act of 2011 THE House of Representatives has passed on third and final reading a bill establishing a mercury exposure information program on the hazards and adverse effects of mercury when eating fish and other marine products. Rep. Joseph Victor Ejercito (Lone District, San Juan City), one of the authors of House Bill 4541, said mercury is a bio-accumulative heavy metal that poses a significant risk to human health, wildlife and the environment. Quoting the World Health Organization, Ejercito said there is substantial evidence showing that exposure to methyl-mercury is widespread among the people and occurring at higher than healthtolerable levels. Ejercito said most of the
fish and seafood caught or sold in the country are contaminated with methyl-mercury, a toxic chemical that may cause neurological damage and other health related problems as a result of fish or seafood intake. “Evidence is also continuing to emerge linking increased risk of coronary heart disease to mercury exposure,” he said.
“Sadly, health advisory information on mercury-contaminated fish, which is necessary to protect public health, is not widely disseminated by the government. This lack of awareness potentially threatens tens of million of Filipinos who may unknowingly ingest harmful amounts of mercury because they are not aware of
Turn-over of Health Center in Barangay 15
Congressman Rufus B. Rodriguez of the second district of Cagayan de Oro formally turns over a health center project in Barangay 15 that cost P500,000. In this occasion, Cong. Rodriguez announced that he secured an additional P2 million from the Department of Health for the completion of the second floor of the building which would then cost a total of P2.5 million.

Rufus Rodriguez (center), Dr. Jose Llacuna, of Department of Health-X, Dr. Raychel Dilla and Brgy Chair Lucilo Legaspi, Kagawads Charito Cabonialda, Narissa Calotes and barangay health workers.
exposure risks from consumption of freshwater fish and seafood,” Ejercito stressed. The bill mandates the Secretary of Health to issue a comprehensive health advisory to the general public about the presence of methyl mercury in fish and other seafood and its potential dangers to health, particularly to the high-risk groups such as pregnant women and children. Rep. Rufus Rodriguez (2nd District, Cagayan de Oro City), another author of the measure, said the measure addresses the problem of lack of awareness by providing the public with adequate notice and education on the effects of exposure to mercury. “This can be done through the development of health ad-
visories and by requiring that such appropriate advisories be posted, or made readily available, at all businesses that sell fresh, frozen and canned fish and seafood where the potential for mercury exposure exists,” Rodriguez said. The measure to be known as the “Mercury Exposure Information Act of 2011” mandates the Department of Health (DOH) to provide medical information on the signs and symptoms, treatment and prevention of mercury related illnesses and reliable information on the mercury level in fish and other seafood. The bill also obligates market and business establishments where fish and other seafood are sold for human consumption to post health advisories.
The DOH and the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) are required to distribute a warning consumer’s guide or manual on the potential dangers of exposure to mercury. Under the bill, the head or official of any maternal and child hospital, clinic, center or similar office who fails to post the consumer advisory on the hazards of mercury face a fine of P10,000. The administrator or operator of any market or business establishment that sells fish and other seafood contaminated with mercury will pay a fine of P8,000. The co-authors of the bill are Reps. Maximo Rodriguez, Jr. (Party-list, Abante Mindanao, Inc.) and Alfredo Marañon III (2nd District, Negros Occidental).
