DOH tells travelers entering country to be vaccinated amid polio outbreak

T

he Department of Health (DOH) on Thursday advised travelers entering the Philippines to be vaccinated in wake of re-emergence of polio in the country. “Foreign nationals and returning Filipinos of all

ages who are intending to stay in the Philippines for

4 weeks and more, are encouraged to receive a single dose of inactivated poliovirus vaccine (IPV) not later than 4 weeks before their scheduled travel to the Philippines. Given that the traveler has not received polio vaccination in the last

12 months,” the DOH said in a statement. “Travelers undertaking urgent travel within 4 weeks are recommended to receive a single dose of IPV at least by the time of departure as this will still provide bene�its, particu-

she added. Studies have shown migratory birds to be important in healthy ecosystems as they travel distances and carry seeds from one place to another, one way they link ecosystems together across the world. “They are also indicators of how healthy an area’s biodiversity is,” Lim said, adding that the UNEP Convention on Migratory Species data show that atrisk conservation areas for birds also have a signi�icant number of threatened species of plants and animals. Thus, it is very important of regional cooperation in protecting migratory birds and their habitats. “Regional cooperation is essential to address this threat,” Lim pointed out. Efforts in the region to reduce plastic pollution and marine debris are gaining traction. Last June, the 10 members has adopted the Bangkok Declaration on Combating Marine Debris in the ASEAN Region during the 34th ASEAN Summit. In signing the Declaration, the heads of state committed to prevent and reduce marine debris using

an integrated land-to-sea approach, strengthen national laws and regulations, and enhance regional and international cooperation, including on relevant policy dialogue and information sharing. For its part, the ACB commends the members for taking measures to reduce single-use plastic in their respective jurisdictions prior to and after the Bangkok Declaration. Brunei Darussalam, for one, has enjoined major stores and businesses for its “No Plastic Bag Everyday Initiative,” and is now engaging small businesses and consumers. Cambodia charges for plastic bags to encourage the switch to reusable bags. It is now aiming to attract investments in plastic recycling businesses. Several localities in Indonesia like Bali, Banjarmasin City, Balikpapan City, and more have banned single-use plastic. Laos and Myanmar are pushing for plastic alternatives like bamboo straws. Laos encourages the public to use recyclable bags, while Myanmar has banned

n celebration of the World Migratory Day, the ASEAN Centre for Biodiversity (ACB) is joining the international community in the global �ight against plastic pollution. “Plastic and other marine debris is an issue that transcends nations’ boundaries, as these debris move around the oceans, possibly entering other nations’ waters,” said Dr. Theresa Mundita S. Lim, the center’s executive director, said in a press statement released on October 12. Lim cited a report from the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) stating that more than eight million tons of plastic get in the oceans each year – that’s an equivalent to dumping a garbage truck of plastic every minute. Each year, the World Migratory Day is celebrated on October 12. This year’s theme is: “Protect Birds: Be the Solution to Plastic Pollution!” “Plastic pollution is a serious threat to migratory birds,” Lim pointed out. “One million seabirds around the world die from the effects of plastic every

year.” Currently, 90% of seabirds have plastic in their guts, and this proportion is expected to reach 99% by 2050. “If this trend continues,” Lim deplored, “these birds may not survive the next generations.” Every year, 50 million waterbirds journey between their northern breeding grounds as far as Arctic Russia to their wintering grounds in Southeast Asia, Australia, and New Zealand. These birds �ly through the East Asian-Australasian Flyway (EAAF), their long-established route as they travel to warmer climates after breeding in the northern regions, and back again during breeding season. The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Region is at the heart of this �lyway. “Thus, this �lyway is signi�icant to these waterbirds’ annual migration,” Lim said. “As migratory waterbirds are interconnected and interdependent to the network of wetland sites at the EAAF, regional cooperation is critical for their conservation and survival,”

larly for frequent travelers,” it added. DOH also encouraged travelers leaving the Philippines to check immunization requirements of countries they are going to, and if required, receive a dose of IPV before departure

and get a certi�icate from the Bureau of Quarantine to serve as proof of their vaccination. Last Sept. 19, DOH declared a polio outbreak in the Philippines after 2 cases of the virus were con�irmed in the country.

PRC to open 4th reg'l office in Mindanao

T

he Professional Regulatory Commission (PRC) will �inally open in Koronadal City next year its fourth regional of�ice in Mindanao. Eddie Amir, head of the Department of Public Works and Highways-South Cotabato II engineering district, said Friday the construction of the three-story regional of�ice building is currently underway at the Region 12 regional center site in Barangay Carpenter Hill, Koronadal City. He said PRC had commissioned the agency to implement the project, which has a funding of P53 million under the 2019 national budget. “[The project is] ahead of schedule. It commenced last July 2019 and is expected to be completed in March 2020,” he said in a statement. Citing the project design, he said the building will have a deck, conference room as well as conducive and standard of�ice spaces to cater the needs of the increasing

number of professionals in the region. He said it will have enough space to host trainings and professional examinations with a maximum of 65 examinees. Some regional of�ices currently host examinations with lesser number of examinees, among them the Marine Deck Of�icers’ exam. The other PRC regional of�ices in Mindanao are located in Pagadian City (Region 9), Cagayan de Oro City (Region 10) and Davao City (Region 11). PRC currently operates a satellite of�ice at the Robinsons Mall here and caters applications and renewal of professional licenses. The Regional Development Council (RDC) of Region 12 pushed as early as 2013 for the establishment of a permanent PRC regional of�ice in Koronadal City, the regional seat and center. “Soccsksargen is among the regions in the Philippines that does not

20 SoCot brgys to have ‘zero open defecation’ communities by yearend

H

ealth personnel in South Cotabato province are pushing for the declaration before yearend of at least 20 barangays as “zero open defecation” or ZOD communities. Dr. Rogelio Aturdido Jr., head of the Integrated Provincial Health Of�ice (IPHO), said the selected barangays have passed the initial assessment conducted by their of�ice and a team from the Department of Health (DOH)-Region 12 for the �irst level of the ZOD program. He said these barangays are located in the municipalities of Polomolok, Norala, Tupi, Tampakan and Sto. Niño. “They were recommended by the municipal health of�ices as the areas that will most likely pass the assessment and recognized as ZOD communities,” he said during the “Kapihan sa Kapitolyo” hosted by the Provincial Information Of�ice on Thursday. Aturdido said the 20 barangays comprise the initial batch that they endorsed for the ZOD assessment in the entire province. South Cotabato, which is composed of 10 municipalities and one component city, has a total of 199 barangays. Erisaldy Quines, IPHO sanitary engineer, said the assessment was the �irst of the four levels adopted by the DOH for the ZOD program, which is supported by the World Health Organization and the United Nations Children’s Fund. He said a barangay may qualify for the �irst level ZOD status if there are no more open spaces still used for defecation; all households have access to functional toilets and are using them; all toilets, either shared or individual, have steady water supply and have

available soap; and used diapers and other related materials are disposed properly. The action plan on local sanitation in the barangay should be in place and there should be an established team that will regularly monitor local sanitation and hygiene practices, he said. Aturdido said the IPHO is currently providing technical assistance to local health of�ices and the barangays to ensure compliance to the ZOD standards. He said they are hoping that more barangays will be assessed for the �irst level ZOD status next year. “Our main concern right now is there are still communities that don’t have stable water supplies and access to potable water,” he said. Based on their latest assessment, he said 90 percent of the province’s barangays already have potable water sources while households have access to water sealed toilets. The remaining 10 percent are situated in remote areas and identi�ied as priorities for the distribution of water sealed toilets and construction of potable water systems. Aturdido acknowledged that the province needs to double its efforts on the campaign to eventually make local communities safer from various diseases, including polio. He said the improper disposal of fecal wastes, especially in waterways, could trigger the spread of polio in the communities. “This is big challenge for us and our barangays but rest assured that we are doing everything to effectively address this concern,” he added.

he Department of Budget has approved for release the P15 million budget requested by City of Mati Mayor Michelle Nakpil Rabat for the rehabilitation of the Buso Hot Spring Park. In a letter dated October 4, DBM Acting Secretary Wendel Avisado informed Mayor Michelle that the Special Allotment Release Order (Saro) was already issued to the Bureau of Treasury on September 26. On August 8, Mayor Michelle sent a letter to President Rodrigo Duterte requesting for a �inancial assistance for project. The following day,

Mayor Michelle personally visited the of�ice of Sec. Avisado for the same purpose. And just over a month after, the budget was approved and released for use. The Buso Hot Spring Park was constructed in the late 1990s and is the only identi�ied source of hot spring in the city. Mayor Michelle said that the park is in dire need of rehabilitation due to dilapidation of the existing facilities there. Once rehabilitated, the Buso Hot Spring Park will become the next tourist attraction in the City of Mati as an alternative to the famous beaches. (CIO MATI)

DOT exec urges positive news to boost Mindanao By MAYA M. PADILLO

indanaoans are urged to continue sharing positive news to help build the image of the island as a thriving, ideal, and attractive destination. This is in relation to reports that business leaders, marketing decision-makers, youth and community from outside Mindanao lack the knowledge on effectively marketing Mindanao as well as its growth opportunities. Tourism Undersecretary Art Boncato has urged Mindanaons to share positive news about the beautiful destinations, air connectivities, and opportunities for tourism to help promote Mindanao. "Davao is a bustling city now, Cagayan de Oro is, General Santos is, we have emerging destina-

tions and other beautiful destinations. Siargao is voted the best island in the world-those kinds of news have to be shared. Even new connections, new �lights domestic and international �lying to Mindanao. Those are economic indicators that will help build he image of Mindanao as a thriving, ideal and attractive destination," Boncato said during the two-day marketing conference entitled "Navigate Mindanao" which was held on October 10 to 11 at Dusit Thani Residence Davao. Boncato said there is a

need to focus and ensure consistency in terms of communicating the markets and audiences about Mindanao. "We need to continue to communicate and make sure that the positive voice is louder than any other voice. We already know that Mindanao is a growing island and urban centers are also growing fast and causes a lot of opportunities for tourism," Boncato said. Boncato was one of the speakers of the conference tagged as the �irst-of-itskind immersive marketing event that featured an indepth research, different perspectives and new lens on growth opportunities in Mindanao. In his presentation, Boncato showed similari-

ties of Mindanao in the rest of the Philippines and the differences. He also shared the history of Mindanao, why Mindanaoans look at things differently and the different perspective of each people. "In terms of tourism we say we have the natural products and services except that our effort is different when it comes to other destination because we continue to share information about Mindanao especially the positive development that shaped the con�idence of travelers right now," he said. Boncato also shared how Mindanaoans look at peace. "We the people from Mindanao we love peace

PH low-cost carriers to launch new domestic destinations

C

ebu Paci�ic (CEB) and AirAsia Philippines, two of the country’s budget carriers, are set to launch new domestic routes in the remaining months of 2019 including international destinations soon. CEB spokesperson Charo Lagamon said all is set for their Cebu-Busuanga services on October 27 and Clark-Puerto Princesa route on November 17. “It has always been the mission of CEB to enable Filipinos to �ly and connect more of the Philippines. It’s opportune to connect Palawan with the rest of Luzon and the Visayas,” Lagamon told the Philippine News Agency (PNA) on Thursday. She said there is a strong interest for leisure travel and MICE (meetings, incentives, conferences and exhibitions) in Palawan, which is known as “the last frontier”. AirAsia Philippines will also launch a twice-daily �light between Manila and Bacolod this month. The budget carrier would launch services to Zamboanga, Narita in Japan, AirAsia vice chair Sheila Romero announced in a press conference on Wednesday (Oct. 9). “These routes would be possible as more planes would arrive,” she added. The company recently launched a Manila-Osaka route, which has now 84 percent load factor, according to chief executive of�icer Ricardo Isla. “We are expecting this (load factor) to increase to

90 percent by December,” he added. Isla also said the carrier is now studying to offer services to other parts of Japan such as Tokyo and Narita, since these are proven pro�itable to other AirAsia companies. Philippine branch’s major shareholders, Representative Mikee Romero and wife Sheila, said introducing new routes would mean more tourists to the Philippines. The Romeros recently bought Antonio Cojuangco’s 15.6 percent shares in AirAsia Philippines, making the couple the majority shareholders with a total of 60 percent stake in the company. PAL to boost domestic routes Meanwhile, �lag carrier Philippine Airlines will also launch four new domestic routes to increase intra-domestic connectivity. PAL spokesperson Cielo Villaluna said the new routes, which will start in December are Cebu-Dipolog and Cebu-Zamboanga while Davao-Iloilo route will open in January next year. Villaluna said PAL would also add frequencies to some of its existing routes in anticipation of “increased demand this Holiday season and thereafter”. Additional frequencies are scheduled on �lights between Cebu-Legazpi; Cebu-Busuanga; Cebu-Butuan; Cebu-Tacloban; Davao-Siargao; and Davao-Tagbilaran. (PNA)

WB cuts PH growth forecast for 2019

T

he World Bank (WB) has revised its Philippine economic growth forecast for 2019 amid the sharp deceleration in investment growth and the impact of global developments, but expecting a recovery over the next two years. The WB now sees the country’s gross domestic product (GDP) growing 5.8 percent from its April forecast of 6.4 percent, according to the Philippines Economic Update (PEU) it released on Thursday. In a press brie�ing on Wednesday, WB senior economist for the Philippines Rong Qian said GDP growth slowed down from 6.3 percent in the �irst half of 2018 to 5.5 percent this year, driven by a contraction in public investment due to the delayed passage of the 2019 national budget and the spending ban on new projects before the May election. Qian also cited the continuous deceleration of export activities in the �irst half of 2019 given the unstable global policy environment caused by the trade dispute between the United States and China and the sustained weakness in global demand. But she said the Philippine economy is expected

to recover to 6.1 percent in 2020 and 6.2 percent in 2021. “Economic growth is expected to surpass 6 percent in 2020-21 as the impact of the budget delay dissipates, assuming timely passage of new budgets, private consumption growth remains robust, and that uncertainties around the passage of tax reform program dissipate soon,” she said. Qian noted that public investment is among the main economic growth drivers in the next two years. “… Because the infrastructure gap is still there and (it) is still the government priority to do more infrastructures spending in the rest (remaining years) of the administration. But also private investments should pick up once the uncertainty around the corporate tax reform is resolved, (and) that the private investment that was on hold should start coming again,” she added. Qian said monetary policy is also expected to be “accommodative” as in�lation pressure diminishes. The PEU report added strong private consump-

Council expected to pass P9B-plus budget for 2020 By MAYA M. PADILLO

T

he Davao City Council is expected to approve over P9 billion budget for 2020. dar of the series of committee hearings, my forecast is, we will be approving the budget for second reading the second week of November. I have not seen the budget, but I am very sure that it is more than P9 billion,” he said. The City Council has approved a budget of P8.9 billion for the current �iscal year. “So maybe we will

reach P9.8 billion to P10 billion budget for next year. Depende. I have not yet seen the budget,” he added. Dayanghirang, who is the city council’s Committee on Finance chair, said the bulk of the budget will go to personnel and maintenance operating expenditures that is 55 percent, annual development fund 20 percent and the rest are for infra projects. There might be a pending supplemental budget for this year, according to him, which he said they

will ask the city accountant to look at for any excesses and surpluses of the previous year’s budget and lump it together for one supplemental budget to comply any department of budget management circulars that include bonuses and increases of salary. The City Council has approved a P1.474 billion supplemental budget for this year last August for various projects, including waste management and transport terminals for the high priority bus system (HPBS).

side from the impact of global trade developments, a wait-andsee stance on the outcome of the proposed corporate income tax reform may be a factor in the decline of foreign direct investments (FDIs) to the Philippines. “I think, overall, the FDIs have declined,” Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) Governor Benjamin Diokno told journalists Friday. Data released by the central bank on Thursday showed that net FDIs in July 2019 dropped by 41.4 percent to USD543 million from year-ago’s USD926 million. This brought the net FDIs in the �irst seven months this year to USD4.118 billion, 39.1

percent lower than the USD6.768 billion same period last year. Last July alone, the drop was due to the lower net equity and investments at USD186 million from USD336 million of the same month last year. Withdrawals were higher last July at USD69 million to USD17 million a year ago. Reinvested earnings are also higher at USD87 million from USD75 million in July last year. Diokno said investors want clarity on the path of the corporate income tax reform. “They want to know exactly what will be the �inal version of that bill. So the sooner we act on that, then the sooner the investors

can make up their mind whether to enter or exit,” he said. The Department of Finance (DOF) has proposed the reform of the country’s tax system to correct it, noting that the government is losing money from the inequities of the existing framework. The proposed reform, dubbed as the Corporate Income Tax and Incentives Rationalization Act (CITIRA) bill, targets to correct the existing system that incentivizes more than one-third of the economy because covered companies are considered as part of priority industries. Under the proposal, incentives will only be given to industries that deserve it since it will be perfor-

mance-based, targeted, time-bound, and transparent. Tax holidays are also proposed to be given to deserving companies at a maximum of up to �ive years for those located in the National Capital Region (NCR), up to seven years for those located in Rizal, Laguna, Cavite and Bulacan and up to 10 years for those located in other parts of the country. The measure also aims to lower corporate income tax (CIT) from 30 percent to 20 percent gradually for a period of 10 years. Diokno said the measure will bene�it about 99 percent of corporations, especially the small and medium enterprises. (PNA)

espite the adverse impact to local farmers of the removal of quantitative restrictions on rice importation, the Department of Agriculture has not yet decided on whether to impose safeguard duties

on imported rice to protect local farmers. Unlimited importation of rice under the Rice Tarif�ication Act has driven down farm-gate prices of palay, dealing the agriculture sector a blow. Last month, the DA

initiated an investigation into the matter and was expected to announce its decision on Friday, October 11. “Pag-uusapan pa ng economic development managers,” Agriculture Secretary William Dar

said referring to the results of the investigation. Asked if the delay would have detrimental effects, Dar replied, “Wala naman. We will, we are still in the process of highlighting and mentioning,

2022 are those involved in the food business according to the Philippine Franchise Association (PFA). The franchising template has become the tool in expanding operations by local brands. In terms of priority markets overseas, PFA said Philippine brands are expected to go to Southeast Asian countries due to proximity as well as markets where there are many Filipino workers such as the Middle East and North America. Penong’s aggressive push in the domestic market has been the driving force of its growing niche in the highly competitive food market and its expansions to Visayas and Luzon areas could well work as a formula for its success in the Singapore market where there are 163,000 Filipinos. The Singapore branch is only the beginning for Penong’s footprint in the global market and should inspire other local products to expand via the franchise template.

ANTONIO V. FIGUEROA FAST BACKWARD

THREE VISAYAN WRITERS OF DAVAO The list of jaded Visayan writers who graced Davao’s literary scene may not be impressively long, but the legacy they have left behind is something that’s worth visiting. Three of these notable authors, all dead, lived their craft with honor. They loved their profession even without stable �inancial rewards. First on the roster is Jesus S. Ibañez, an information of�icer in the seventies of the defunct National Media Production Center, forerunner of Philippine Information Agency. He edited the in-house publication Banikanhon (Rural Folk). He later joined the city government of Davao as information of�icer and headed the periodical Barangay Balita during the Luis T. Santos admin. As an English writer, he won many honors from the annual Philippine Free Press literary tilts, then the hotbed of future giants in Philippine literature next to Palanca Awards. On the other hand, Ambrocio T. Suico, Sr., a resident

of Digos City, was the author of the famed Visayan novel Samal ug Talikod, which ran for weeks in the Bisaya, a magazine of Manila Bulletin. A native of Leyte, he �ilmed the �irst Visayan movie in Mindanao in the late �ifties, with scenes shot in his insurance brokerage of�ice at corner E. Palma Gil and C.M. Recto Streets, Davao City. He later became provincial information of�icer of Davao del Sur. The most popular among local writers was Satur P. Apoyon, who wrote columns in established local publications. A proli�ic Visayan poet, librettist, scriptwriter, and journalist, his short stories included Sama sa Gapnud (Like a Driftwood), Ang Adlawng Mosal-op (The Setting Sun), and Pagbuklad sa Bulak (Blossoming of a Flower), published by Bisaya in 1955. In 1974, Apoyon wrote the script of the movie, Bol-anon Ko, Nyor! (I am a Boholano). He published Southern Observer (1967) in

Digos City, and Mindanao Life (1986) and Lumad (Native) in Davao City. He was also regional chief of Philippine News Agency. He mysteriously died on May 24, 2011, in Gov. Generoso, Davao Oriental. His obituary says so much about the man: “Satur Apoyon was born in Lincod, Maribojoc, Bohol, on December 24, 1935. He worked as correspondent for the Bohol Chronicle for a time, and in 1960, at age 25, he settled in Davao for good. “He worked for a time with the Department of Social Welfare and Development. In 1980, he joined the Philippine News Agency where he became bureau chief. He retired in 2001. “He put his hand to �iction early on, and he was active in several writers’ groups. He helped fund Diwa sa Dagang Bisaya (DIDABI) in 1960 (sic), and he became the �irst president of the Davao Writers Guild. He represented Eastern Mindanao in the NCCA Committee on Literary

Arts from 2001 to 2004. “His body of work includes 65 short stories, four serialized novels, 57 poems, and countless articles, comics, and jokes. He received �irst prize in the Bathalad-Mindanao �iction contest in 2000. His collection of short stories, Ang Gakit ni Noebong ug Ubang mga Sugilanon was published by the NCCA and the Davao Writers Guild in 2008. “For his contributions to Mindanao literature, he was awarded the Taboan Literary Award at the 3rd Taboan Philippine International Writers Festival held in Davao in February 2011.” In today’s generation, two of the giants in Visayan literature identi�ied with Davao are Iloilo-born Leoncio P. Deriada, a Palanca Awards hall of famer, and Macario D. Tiu. Deriada �inished high school at Davao City High School, and tertiary education at Ateneo de Davao University, while Tiu, also a mul-

tiple Palanca Awards winner, is a historian, �ictionist and educator linked also with the same university. Both are now in their early seventies. Close to sixty years since Visayan literature invaded the Davaoeño consciousness, the torch of Cebuano literary continues to live. In 1963, for instance, the Diwa sa Dagang Bisaya (DIDABI), i.e., Spirit of Bisaya literature, was formally organized in Davao City. The club, inspired by the Lubas sa Dagang Bisaya (LUDABI) established earlier in Cebu City, did not survive long because in 1969 it folded up. Thirty-three years later, Davao Writers Guild, which later published Dagmay, was founded in 1999 with Ricardo M. de Ungria, then a dean at the University of Philippines-Mindanao, as �irst president. Apoyon took over the post for three years (2001-04) until Ungria, now back to handle a higher university position, rejoined the society as president.

HENRYLITO D. TACIO THINK ON THESE!

POLIO VACCINATION FOR TRAVELERS Environmental samples taken from Tondo, Manila and Davao City were tested positive for vaccine derived poliovirus type 2 (VDPV2). This was followed by con�irmation of two polio human cases from Lanao del Sur and Laguna. All positive samples were tested by the National Polio Laboratory at the Research Institute for Tropical Medicine. All VDPV2 samples, with the exception from the Laguna case, were reportedly “genetically linked.” “This series of events led to the declaration of a polio outbreak by the Department of Health on September 19, recommended by the Emergency Committee under the International Health Regulations (IHR) regarding the international spread of poliovirus,” stated the joint report of two UN agencies – the World Health Organization (WHO) and United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF). This is very alarming. “Circulating VDPV2 is highly contagious and expected to spread rapidly due to low level of population immunity against poliovirus type 2,” the joint report said. The cVDPV2

is considered a public health emergency. Polio, the shorter term for poliomyelitis, “is a crippling and potentially deadly infectious disease,” says the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). “It is caused by poliovirus. The virus spreads from person to person and can invade an infected person’s brain and spinal cord, causing paralysis (can’t move parts of the body).” Most people (about 72 out of 100) who get infected will not have any visible symptoms. About one in four people with poliovirus infection will have �lu-like symptoms that may include sore throat, fever, tiredness, nausea, headache and stomach pain. “These symptoms usually last 2 to 5 days then go away on their own,” the CDC says. However, a smaller portion of those infected with poliovirus will develop other more serious symptoms that affect the brain and spinal cord: paresthesia (feeling of pins and needles in the legs), meningitis (infection of the covering of the spinal cord and/or brain) occurs in about one out of 25 people); and paralysis or weak-

ness in the arms, legs, or both. “Paralysis is the most severe symptom associated with polio because it can lead to permanent disability and death,” the CDC states. “Between 2 and 10 out of 100 people who have paralysis from poliovirus infection die because the virus affects the muscles that help them breathe.” According to CDC, there are cases where children who fully recover can develop new muscle pain, weakness, or paralysis as adults, 15 to 40 years later. This is called post-polio syndrome. Although polio has been traced back almost 6,000 years, there is still no cure for the disease until now. However, it can be prevented with three doses of oral polio vaccine (OPV) and one dose of inactivated polio vaccine (IPV). “These vaccines have long been used in the Philippines, proven safe and effective and are given for free in health centers,” said Health Assistant Secretary Dr. Abdullah Dumama, Jr. The re-emergence of poliovirus in the country was reportedly due to the low vaccination coverage over the

years. “Estimated polio vaccination coverage for children aged less than one year with the required 3 doses for 2018 was 66% (far below the recommended 95%),” the joint report said. While the assessment of WHO appears “to be low” in terms of the risk of international spread of polio from the Philippines,” the risk of further spread within the Philippines “is high due to limited population immunity.” The IHR, however, the international spread of poliovirus remains “a public health emergency of international concern.” As such, the Bureau of Quarantine (BQ) of the health department recommends that all travelers going to and out of the Philippines “to be fully vaccinated against polio.” This is in compliance to the Temporary Recommendations of Statement of the Twenty-�irst IHR Emergency Committee. “Filipinos are not restricted from travelling to other countries at this time,” said the health department in a press statement. “But before they leave, we strongly advise them, most especially our OFWs

(Overseas Filipino workers), to check if the country that they will be travelling to requires a vaccination certi�icate,” Health Undersecretary Rolando Enrique Domingo explained. Travelers who are leaving for countries that require immunization, can receive a dose of IPV before departure and secure an international Certificate of Vaccination from the BQ that will serve as proof of vaccination. As for those entering the country, travelers including foreign nationals and returning Filipinos of all ages, who are intending to stay in the Philippines for four weeks and more and have not received any polio vaccination in the last 12 months, are “encouraged to have themselves immunized with a single dose of IPV not later than four weeks before their scheduled travel to the Philippines.” Those with urgent travel without four weeks are “recommended to receive a single dose of IPV at least by the time of departure as this will still provide added protection, particularly for frequent travelers.” Please be guided, accordingly.

UPGRADE THE QUALITY OF YOUR LIFE WITH

FUJIDENZO

OWNING a house is a major accomplishment for most people, but transforming it into a dream home is an entirely different story. Filling it with appliances usually requires a significant amount of investment that sometimes, people opt to just choose products with the most basic of functions, often sacrificing form, feature, and style.

Although there are many home appliances available in the market, it is difficult to choose a brand you can trust. So if you want products that are known for their durability and energy-efficiency, the top choice of home owners is Fujidenzo Appliances. “Over the years, Fujidenzo has been one of the country’s leading marketers of quality home and commercial appliances. Our brand’s commitment of “Quality Above All” reflects in our products and after-sales service, and has been instrumental in upgrading the quality of life of Filipinos,” said

P&G OLAY TEAMS UP WITH LAZADA TO SUPPORT WOMEN WHO “DOUBLE UP” THEIR ROLES

WOMEN are expected to play dual roles at all times: a leader in the workplace and a hands-on mom; a good daughter and partner; an expert on her line of work and a multi-faceted performer. For all the things that a woman wishes to be, she has to live through society’s expectations, working twice as hard so she can double up her function. Olay partners with Lazada in its biggest Super Brand Day event with a release of its latest online video focused on how single moms double up twice as much. This video reveals that one of the toughest roles women take on is parenting, especially when done all by yourself. At first glance, we see a struggling mother barely getting by, facing judgement for the life she needs to live, but what we don’t realize is that these moms set a powerful example to their kids and to those around them. We see a woman that is fearless, someone who is confident and determined. She does not let anyone make decisions for herself - she runs the show. OLAY x LAZADA Supporting Women who Double up Olay reaches out to every single mother to value self-care, allowing them to double up with less effort. These are for the women who work twice as much and still radiate a different kind of beauty, a beauty that exceeds beyond their struggles. She is able to Glow Up beyond supreme challenges, and her partner: The Olay Power Duo - Olay Regenerist MicroSculpting Cream and Olay White Radiance Light Perfecting Essence. “Doubling up as a parent and a professional is no easy task,” says Alexandra Vogler, Associate Director of Procter & Gamble Beauty, Digital Transformation & Communications and mother of 2 young children. “By sharing the touching story featured in the Olay Monster film, we hope to inspire more people to see doubling up on responsibilities as a strength—and ultimately for women to live their lives fearlessly.” As these brands continue its efforts in inspiring women, this collaboration between Olay and Lazada provides a platform to help women gain easy access to products to complete a full skin care routine at their convenience. So, whether they are at work, at the gym, or winding down with their children in bed, this Lazada partnership equips mothers who double up their role with the Power Duo that also works twice as hard as them. Olay x Lazada supports single moms and all fearless women who know how to double up. Let’s celebrate during the Super Brand Day on October 7, 2019 with amazing deals from Olay and join the conversations how single moms lift each other up. This film is made for women by women. Women of P&G, Lazada, and the agency all took part in conceptualization, production, and execution of the video.

PINK WITH A PURPOSE AT THE WATERFRONT

OCTOBER is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and the Waterfront Insular Hotel Davao goes pink once again in its annual endeavour to promoting Breast Cancer awareness.

Using the color pink for breast cancer awareness was started in 1982 by Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, the largest and best-funded breast cancer organization in the US. The logo that they came up with was an abstract female runner outlined by a pink ribbon. Almost half a century later, the color pink and the pink ribbon is still the most universally-recognized symbol for breast cancer awareness. This year the Waterfront Insular Hotel Davao, together with the Municipality of Loreto, Agusan del Sur and Carousel Productions, brought 25 international delegates of the 2019 Miss Earth pageant to an exclusive charity gala where women advocates and women of the Earth come together with a collective intention to support the cause. The stellar line-up includes

candidates from the Central Western Europe, Eastern Europe, North Central America, South America, Africa and Asia. The fashion extravaganza had the ladies paving the runway, sash in hand, garbed in regal evening wear by Love & Styles, wearable pieces woven with the “Inaul” fabric of Maguindanao, and pink tee shirts accessorized by Kathryn Fanlo. The Inaul section of the show featured Maguindanao’s beautiful indigenous tapestry as designed by the province’s cream of the crop and home-grown designers including: Mac Taug, Akmad Kari, Joy Puro Abayon, Jose “Pepe” Quitco, Melissa

Ajaddi Chin, Thato Kambali Inggo, Julien Gentica and Matet Edcil Pineda. Aside from the gala, a pink art exhibition portraying different imageries of women created by the BaiHinang group of women artists was formally opened for public viewing at the Hotel Lobby and with it, a Pink Matters room promotion to run lasting the entire month of October or the Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Part of the proceeds from all these initiatives will be donated to the Ribbon of Hope Cancer Care Advocacy of the Davao Doctors Hospital to help women in local and indigenous communities who are in need of the early detection and proper treatment. The Pink Party 2019 was held at Waterfront’s Garden Pavilion styled by Noel Tanza of Golden Touch. Partners and sponsors include: Love & Styles, The Province of Maguindanao, Kathryn Fanlo, BaiHinang, Transcycle, Beautederm, Cacao & Beyond, Emperador Distillers, Inc. and Club Echelon Davao.

NEDA urges redoubling efforts to boost export products

T

he government should redouble efforts to support export products where the country has comparative advantage so the trade sector recovers and picks up more steam, the National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) said. The Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) reported that the country’s total trade declined by 7 percent in August 2019 due to weaker exports and continued decline in imports. “We must continue to initiate programs that provide comprehensive packages of support for products with comparative advantages, including related industries, to facilitate expansion in the international market,” Socioeconomic Planning Secretary Ernesto Pernia said in a statement. Trade exports registered a paltry 0.6 percent growth for August 2019, backed by the modest performance of agro-based products, forest and electronic products. Meanwhile, imports contracted by 11.8 percent as major commodity groups posted declines in imports of raw materials, intermediate goods, and capital goods. While serving to narrow the gap in trade de�icit, the persistent decline in imports may be an area of concern as production in sectors requiring import

components have also decreased. “As subdued investments in emerging markets, coupled with the persisting trade tensions, continue to hamper global expansion, implementation of timely reforms will vastly improve the country’s resilience to external shocks,” the Cabinet of�icial said. Business models should also adapt to current demands and market trends by utilizing digital platforms that will increase production ef�iciency and expand their reach both locally and internationally. “Legislations such as the proposed amendments to the Foreign Investment Act, Public Serve Act, and Trade Liberalization Act would go a long way in improving competitiveness through much needed foreign direct investments and innovation,” Pernia said. The country should deepen its relations with its usual trade partners while actively seeking new ones. “As the market turns its focus toward advanced and frontier technologies, the country’s human capital development should prioritize intensi�ied reskilling, retooling and upskilling initiatives that emphasize industry and academe coordination, to ensure that the labor market is adaptive and responsive to current and emerging market demands,” he added.

Yulo now ranks 10th in World's all-around event

A

fter securing an Olympic berth, Filipino gymnast Carlos Yulo settled for 10th place in the men's all-around �inals in the 2019 World Artistic Gymnastics Championships in Stuggart, Germany. Yulo registered a total of 84.048 points to improve on his 18th place in the qualifying round. He banked on his

prowess in the �loor, vault, and parallel bars to barge in the top 10. He, however, scored lower in the pommel horse category with just 12.816. Russia dominated the event as it captured the gold and silver medals courtesy of Nikita Nagornny and Artur Dalaloyan, respectively. Nagornny showcased an 88.772-point

performance to rake the top spot while Dalaloyan registered 87.165 markers. Completing the podium �inishers was Ukraine's Oleg Verniaiev. Yulo became the second Filipino athlete to qualify to the 2020 Tokyo Olympics after advancing to the men's all-around �inals. He is set to join pole vaulter EJ Obiena in the quadrennial event.

FRED C. LUMBA SPORTS KEN

PINOYS SHOULD BAG 2019 SEAG CHAMPIONSHIP Ideally speaking - as hosts - the Philippines should grab the overall championship of the Southeast Asian Games due to unfold November 30 at the spanking, newly constructed national stadium at the New Clark City located in between the boundaries of the provinces of Tarlac and Pampanga. Historically, in the early days of this biennial athletic meet – when the SEAG consisted only of six nations - every country that alternately staged it eventually emerged victorious at the podium. During this time, three member countries – Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand – alternately dominated at the top while the Philippines, Singapore and Brunei struggled to get their bearings going. Friendship, unity and sportsmanship are the major objectives

of the SEAG, not to mention diplomacy, business, commerce and trade, regional growth and development, etc. In 2005, the Philippines as hosts took home the golden trophy after �inishing runner-up in the 1991 edition when the country staged it for the second time. Because the SEAG is a sports gab that affords athletes their �irst foreign exposure though in a much lower level distinctly apart from the Asian and Olympic Games and the World Championships, Filipino sports leaders generally desire that all athletes in the national training pool take part and have a taste of foreign competition to get rid of �irst time jitters. This is a sports policy of the Philippine Olympic Committee that I have supported through the years, including the era of Cristy

Ramos, daughter of FVR, who became the �irst woman POC president. Cristy brought to Indonesia in the 1997 SEAG the largest Philippine athletic delegation, somewhere near 900 athletes, coaches and technical of�icials. Proper and adequate foreign exposure have been the bane of talented Pinoy athletes who possess the potential to elevate their skills to world class standards. But because of the huge training expenses and the lack of adequate funding and support from the government sports agency, only a few athletes engaged in individual events selected by the NSA concerned are given the green light to train abroad and take part in mostly European contests. One of today’s “lucky” Pinoy athletes is pole vaulter EJ Obiena,

ranked number 14 in the world in a sport long dominated by athletes from Europe and the US. At 6’2” tall, Obiena, the current SEAG recordholder, has a very promising career before him. He is the �irst Filipino to qualify for the 2020 Tokyo Summer Olympics. He holds a personal best of 5.8 meters he established in an Italian meet which he won and is just a few centimeters away from getting into elite membership of pole vaulters who reached and eclipsed 6 meters. The Philippines is expected to reign supreme in basketball, billiards, chess, softball, baseball, boxing, athletics, sepak takraw, taekwondo, karate, wushu, wrestling, judo, archery, shooting, gymnastics and hopefully football. Swimming events, a centerpiece sport, are dominated by

Singapore though. The Vietnamese will give SEAG competitors a run for the money in chess, football, shooting, wushu, athletics, archery, gymnastics, table tennis, and martial arts sports while perennial title contender Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand are capable of giving everyone headaches in almost any sports event, including badminton, football, table tennis, shooting, athletics, the martial arts, etc. But for all intents and purposes – despite its increased membership to eleven nations – the SEAG remains a battle�ield for only FIVE countries: Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia and the Philippines. The rest are what we call “Salimpusa” only. (Email your feedback to fredlumba@yahoo.com.) GOD BLESS THE PHILIPPINES!
