CJ Sereno calls court staff heroes; eggs on to double their effort TACLOBAN CITY- Supreme Court Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno urged court judges and personnel to double their effort in decongesting court dockets and prove to the national government, especially Congress, that this co-equal branch is deserving of better working condition and better budget necessary to improve court facilities and finance reforms in the judiciary. While she gave this advice, the Chief Justice assured the court staff that the leadership of the High Tribunal will fight for the retention of all the benefits that the officials and employees of the judiciary have been enjoying. The chief magistrate who called the court personnel as heroes, being front

liners, expressed high regards on the contribution they could give to achieve the High Court’s goals.

Health exec urges workers to exercise to avoid work-related stress PALO, Leyte- The Department of Health here in the region has urged heads of various agencies to let their rank and file employees undergo regular medical examinations. DOH-8 Regional Director Jaime Bernadas said that some employees, whether in the government or private institutions, are suffering from mental disturbances that lead to health risks and complications which

eventually may result into low productivity and service delivery inefficiency. He also said that employees, especially those in the government, are entitled to regular medical check-up and must be given time to do some physical exercises in the office to avoid stress as well as the development of health risks. “Health of employees should also be given consideration to attain pro-

He also stated that big agencies and institution should have their own medical team or at least a nurse to do the medical check-up. However, for those that have no medical officers, they can seek services of government health centers, hospitals or may request from a government agencies with medical health teams. Other than this, Bernadas also advocated the healthy lifestyle of every employee to maintain good health. He reiterated the advocacy of no smoking, no illegal drugs, drinking alcohol in moderation, regular exercise, and eating of complete regular diet. (RYAN GABRIEL L. AR-

a concrete shelter to protect steam pipes of the EDC from the cascading rocks from the mountain last March 1. About 20,000 cubic meters of debris cascaded from the mountain entombed the 14 workers with a length of 60 meters and an elevation of about 2 meters. Kananga Mayor Elmer Codilla said that aside from Salcedo, the other last dead body recovered by the rescue group was that of Salvador Yabana. His body was recovered last Wednesday at 5:45 p.m. He was a resident of Brgy. Rizal, Kananga. Codilla said that with the recovery of the two dead bodies of Yabana and Salcedo, the retrieval operation was officially ended. Yesterday morning, a Mass was held at the site and at their office in Makati, EDC spokesperson Dave Devilles said. “We are (relieved) that all of the workers earlier declared as missing are now accounted for and been retrieved,” Codilla said. Codilla said that clearing operation of landslide debris is now ongoing to facilitate repair of damaged structures in pad 403, Sitio Upper Mahiao, Barangay Lim-ao. “It took one week to complete the retrieval operation due to bad weather, fear of another landslide, and rescuers have to be extra careful

in searching for buried corpses,” he said. The remains of Salcedo and Yabana were brought to the Kananga Hospital where their relatives were able to identify them. The two are expected to be buried immediately considering that they were in the state of decomposition already when recovered by the rescue groups composed of the EDC, city government of Ormoc rescue groups as well by members of the 19th Infantry Battalion led by Colonel Alejandro Nacnac and local police. Devilles said they are also relieved now that all the missing persons have been recovered. “Now we can give them proper burial,” Devilles said. Also killed during the landslide incident were Joel Mi-

lay, Bonifacio Polinio, Billy Abella, Edgardo Cabarsi, Sr., Etchield de la Austria, Abelardo Permangel, Marlon Taburanza, Romeo Yasar, Danilo Mabute, Salvador Lascañas, Uldarico Taburanza and Alfred Arabis. The EDC had shouldered the burial expenses of the 14 workers who perished during the landslide as they promised to provide assistance to the families of the victims as well as possible work opportunity. The workers were hired by the JE Arradaza, which was subcontracted by the First Balfour of the EDC.

Leyte board approved ordinance on rabies elimination, pet ownership TACLOBAN CITY – Members of the Sangguniang Panlalawigan of Leyte approved an ordinance authored by Board Member Ryan Lawrence Tiu (first district) seeking control on rabies bites and promotion on responsible pet ownership.

Sereno took note of some observations she and the justices had in this short visit and hinted on possible solutions to some of the problems noticed. In her address before the court staff crowding the sala presided by Acting Judge Lauro Castillo of RTC Branch 8, the Chief Justice enumerated some of the improvements that are being institution-

The ordinance, “Responsible dog and feline ownership and rabies control and elimination ordinance of Leyte” is the third ordinance authored by Tiu that was approved by members of the provincial board since he took the post last August, 2012. Tiu said that the ordinance does not only seek for the control and elimination and spread of rabies but also to

promote the humane treatment of dogs and felines. The ordinance will also address animal control and overpopulation by controlling the reproduction of dogs or cats under the care of their owners by means of managing their breeding, containment through proper veterinary practice. The ordinance also seeks for the establishment and maintenance of veterinarian-client

note that indeed there are courts that are already dilapidated which necessitates funding for repair under the judiciary’s maintenance and other operating expenses budget.

by employees of the RTC and the Municipal Trial Court in Cities in Tacloban and other judges. She departs leaving a mutual pact of cooperation with lower court employees in improving the delivery of service to the public and decongesting court dockets. (EILEEN

Owners should also have their pets with regular vaccination against rabies and to maintain registration card which contain

necessary information related to the vaccinations conducted for accurate record, and pets should always have proper veterinary care.

On the positive developments in Philippine Tourism The President has signed into law the bill removing the 3% common carrier’s tax on foreign airlines operating in the Philippines. This will reduce the prices of tickets, bring more tourists to the Philippines and generate significant job-creating activity for our tourism industry. This comes on the heels of the International Civil Aviation Organization’s (ICAO) lifting of the Significant Safety Concerns imposed on the country in 2008. This is in recognition of Philippine efforts to comply with international aviation safety standards. And just a few days ago, the Philippines jumped 12-notches in the Travel and Tourism Competitiveness Report 2013 of the World Economic Forum. This marked improvement garnered us the distinction of being most improved country in Asia. The report, released locally by the Makati Business Club, noted the Philippines as a “rising star in emerging market economies” which is credited to “policy improvements supporting the industry.”

These show the upward trajectory of Philippine tourism and augurs well for a Government that has deemed tourism a priority in national development. The continued strengthening and expansion of our tourism sector is supportive of our national development goal of inclusive growth, wherein jobs are created in the countryside and in the service sector where Filipinos have a distinct competitive advantage.

Neglect ?

C

rises escalating in Sabah now appear as rooted on neglect by concerned authorities who utterly failed, purposely or conveniently, to show concern on the claim over the territory. The acts of a sultan who claims ownership of Sabah was borne out of disgust that the concerns he raised to the President of the republic fell neglected and did not merit the needed concern from the authorities. The occupation of the territory by the sultan and his followers had caused a standoff with Malaysian forces. Initial reports portrayed the Filipinos are invaders of the place who went into the territory with arms in order to assert the claim they have raised to the national leadership but remained idle until the standoff attracted national if not international attention to the raging issues affecting the territory. The sultan is viewed to have taken a risky if

not suicidal move of asserting a claim that he derived from his forebears. The journey to the territory may be viewed as a misadventure by Philippine officials who begun with admonitions to the sultan and his followers to return home. Such admonition may have sent the wrong signal that our government considers the sultan and his group to be unlawful occupants of the territory. It is one careless pronouncement that may cause adverse implications on our claim over the territory. Urgency in resolving the dispute is the call of the moment. We cannot afford any delay as Malaysia had unduly used force and killed our citizens. Government is duty bound to protect our citizens amid the crisis that is now going out of hand. We cannot afford more loss of lives of our countrymen by further neglect.

Malaysia ignores media cause conflicting reports News blackout in Lahad Datu fighting is a lesson. Without media in the vicinity of tragic events make a government guilty of suppression of Freedom of the Press and Freedom of Expression. The unverified exchange of fires between the Malaysian police and the Royal Army of the Sultanate of Sulu cast doubt as to who really started the shooting. The recent event should open the eyes of any government in the globe to stop suppressing the media practitioners in their selfimposed duties to gather news for the right of the people to know. The fall of Colonel Muammar Al-Gaddafi of Libya is caused failure to allow at first the media to interview the Libyans. Only when the situation came to worst that Gaddafi allowed the local and foreign media to collect news. It was the

citizen journalists who cracked to the outside world the atrocities committed by Gaddafi’s military men. In the case of Malaysia, the Semporna incident has not fully reported. It is still unverified. The story flip-flop that readers are keeps hang-

ing. The recent deportation of the Filipino Muslims may trigger resentment and produce sympathizers within the Filipino Muslim community in Malaysia. If it happen, it will be difficult to quell the uprising. The entry of the more

than two hundred men and women from the nearby Sulu province of the Philippines, unnoticed by the Malaysian security is an indication of vulnerability to attack. There may be more members of the Royal Army of Sulu Sultan Jamalul Kiram III spread throughout Malaysia that could create havoc. Members of the media are trusted by any parties, as such, they could gather information that usually not given to government personnel. It is a vital information that is published in newsprints or broadcast

The Professors’ Point

I have just spent the last five days reflecting what happened during the semester. With one more meeting left, I am wondering if my students have benefitted more learnings inside the classroom than on-line and pay so much for university education and all free from a massive open education on line. Shuffling from and between two universities is no easy task. Adjusting to organizational cultures can be daunting. And not all professors, at least on part time basis will develop a global following, I mean having students from two state universities. While the semester ends, I am laboring and growing pains with my

synthesis - is here and is real. These are my key takeaways from the two universities. Institutions of higher learning must move to a more competency-based world where there will be less interest in how you acquired the competency — in an online course, at a four-year-college and more demand to prove that you mastered the competency. Our K-12 programme can partly address this challenge. I learned from the university president that there are only two countries, one in Africa and the Philippines where the educational system lacks the two year pre-university norm. Maybe, we have to go beyond the “professor’s

point” and move towards empowered material online at their own pace. A blended model would be welcomed. Can you imagine our university infrastructures vacated by paying students who prefer the free online classes? Convert universities into IT learning parks. This is the future shock that futurist Alvin Toffler envisoned years back. No more teachers – only digital communication. And what will happen to the educational sector? The teachers? The counselors? I admit , these are learning revolutions we may face and it is happening. While employers abroad require IELTS, TOEFL and certifications, but there is no requirement that postgraduate professors know how to teach. No more. I am almost panicking. I am trapped in a competition that will force every professor to improve his or her pedagogy or face an online competitor. Do we say, goodbye traditional schools, welcome innovation and technology. Good bye average students and mentors, let us embraced the excellent.

Exercising parental authority

EXERCISING authority is always both a delicate and rewarding duty. This is especially so when done toward growing children. That’s where one’s integrity and the authenticity of his love, with its usual demand for sacrifice, can be shown, as well as developed. That’s because it’s in the home, living with the children 24/7, where the battlefront of this exercise is located. In other aspects of our life, as in our profession, social or political life, the exercise of authority can be intermittent and can easily be delegated to others. Not quite so in the family, with children still growing up.

We, of course, know that the power and authority we may have over the others is always a participation of the authority of God. And such authority should be exercised with God’s will always in mind. That’s what St. Paul clarified. In his letter to the Romans, he said, “There is no power but from God, and those that are, are ordained of God.” (13,1) We need to be clear about this, because many times we can feel that the authority we wield is simply ours. Or that our authority comes from us individually or personally, or from among ourselves through some consensus, and that it can be used to

pursue solely our own goals and designs. This point has to be brought out because big sectors in society today, especially those influenced by leftist and Godless ideologies, consider authority as simply originating from them. They confuse the divine beginning and end of authority with the mechanics of who to assign it among ourselves, what its coverage is, how to exercise it, etc., all of which can be decided among ourselves. Of course, in the context of the family, parental authority is easily recognized by the children. No need to figure it out through some election or other screening processes. What is to be kept in mind more is that this parental authority be maintained and done properly. But how can we do this? I suppose that first of all we have to be reminded that power and authority has to be used as an expression of love, shown in deeds of service, and not regarded as an entitlement to some

either by radio or television, a good intelligence officer could start to sift for tips on enemy movement. A good intelligence officer could easily find locations by careful scrutiny of photos or films. The shots of the cameraman often give leads as to where the interview was held. At the onset, the Malaysian government should have allowed the media people to interview Datu Rajah Muda Agbimuddin Kiram who leads the Royal Army in Lahad Datu. The demand of the people of the Sultanate of Sulu could be resolved in front of the television camera with the two parties far apart. The media could serve as conduit for an open discussion. While the Malaysian government has the right not to talk with Kiram, but, by talking is the best way to solve the impasse. By talking will give way to halt animosity. Talking is better than bullets. No one will die, except it the negotiator has a weak heart. Media practitioners should be given access

in the negotiation to avoid losing more lives. Granting all the members of the Royal Army of Kiram perished in fighting for their seemed right over the land, will it stop the generation of the casualty to come to merely sit down and say “Insha’Allah”? I doubt it will end that way. So, for the benefit of everybody, it is advisable, while only few lives have perished in the Lahad Datu incident that the United Nations (UN) to come and intervene. UN should not wait for thousands to die, like in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya and Syria to happen before they meddle. Kiram and his men are

already at the point of no return. They may sacrifice their lives because of their belief. How about the Malaysian police and military, are they ready to sacrifice their lives for their country? It does not need to be brave or coward in this situation. What the opposing parties need is to throw out their prides. Set aside pride for the sake of the families of innocent people that may be caught in the crossfire. Indeed, it is only the pride that makes human being to cruel to each other. Without it there will be peace for us to enjoy this beautiful earth. (Feedback welcome, g_duna@yahoo.

THE GREATEST COMMANDMENT One of the scribes, when he came forward and heard them disputing and saw how well he had answered the Sadducees, asked [Jesus], “Which is the first of all the commandments?” Jesus replied, “The first is this: ‘Hear, O Israel! The Lord our God is Lord alone! You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.” The scribe said to him, “Well said, teacher. You are right in saying, ‘He is One and there is no other than he.’ And to love him with all your heart, with all your understanding, with all your strength, and to love your neighbor as yourself’ is worth more than all burnt offerings and sacrifices. And when Jesus saw that [he] answered with understanding, he said to him, “You are not far from the kingdom of God.” And no one dared to ask him any more questions.

SERVING THE POOR

privilege or advantage over the others. Christ himself warned his disciples about this. He said: “You know that the princes of the Gentiles lord it over them, and they that are greater exercise power upon them. “It shall not be so among you. But whoever will be the greater among you, let him be your minister, and he that will be first among you, shall be your servant, even as the Son of Man has not come to be served but to serve...” (Mt 20,25-27) In the context of the family, the parental authority can be done well if it is exercised to give the children the basic equipment to become better persons and ultimately, better children of God. This can happen if the parents can show by consistent example to their children that they are happy with their own lives that are dedicated in pursuit of the love of God in all aspects of their lives. Besides that, they should exercise their authority with due respect and an unconditional love for their children, treating

Jeanne Jugan was a loving 47-year old woman in France in 1839. one day she decided to welcome into her home an aged blind woman. Little did Jeanne realize that this act of love would inspire a worldwide community of sisters who would devote their lives to imitating what she did. Today, the “Little Sisters of the Poor” share their home and their love with the elderly in 30 countries. Their practical everyday love has already reached a million people. The test of our love for God is the love we have for one another. “Love your neighbor as yourself” (Mk 12:31) was a commandment Jesus gave, not just to the Little Sisters of the Poor but to all his followers. When we see sisters begging at doorsteps in order to feed and clothe the needy in their care, we are ashamed of our own selfishness. When we don’t love others in a practical way, we cease to love ourselves, we become our own enemy, or our own executioner, since God has created us such that our happiness depends on our making others happy. When nature decides to destroy a man in the struggle for life, it first cultivates his ego. If we are in the painful valley of selfishness, God is telling us as he said to Israel, “Return, O Israel, to the Lord your God, for you have stumbled because of your iniquity” (Hos 14:2). But it is not possible to love God unless we love our neighbour. If I really love God, my innate and persistent selfishness will have received its death blow.

Legarda Highlights Priorities for Next Term

Senator Loren Legarda, senatorial candidate of the Nationalist People’s Coalition (NPC), discussed her priorities should she win another term in the Senate. “Healthcare is number one. I will finish the Universal Healthcare Bill. I will make sure it is enacted into law and that it will be implemented for the 25 million poorest Filipinos,” said Legarda, principal author of the bill. “Our aim is to ensure that no mother has to lose a child from sickness because she could not afford to bring her son or daughter to the hospital; no husband has to lose his wife from giving birth because she was not able to access healthTACLOBAN CITY – Change in season brings in new hairstyles and the Dettie Panis Salon and Spa (DPSS) recently introduced the new look of

Once we have the Universal Healthcare Law, all families can avail of Philhealth benefits even after many presidents and congresses have passed. This will be an important legacy to the Filipinos”, she stressed. Another priority of the senator is the expansion of scholarship programs for indigent but deserving college students. “I will review the scholarship programs of our state universities and colleges (SUCs) and I want to expand the scholarship base to give focus on agriculture, science and technology, environment, and possibly disas-

ter science, because those are the courses that our people would need,” Legarda said. “We will make sure that the more than three million families that are beneficiaries of the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program will have at least one college graduate educated through a scholarship program,” she added. The reelectionist senator under Team Pnoy also said she will continue to look after the welfare of senior citizens by ensuring the full implementation of the Expanded Senior Citizen Act. “We have worked hard for the passage of the Expanded Senior Citizens Act and I will ensure that the law is implemented well so that our elderly Fili-

Puguon said that the training which is a 31/2-day activity is necessary considering that “living in an archipelagic country, most Filipinos find fishing as a means to earn a living and a way of life. Sailing the vast open seas using traditional fishing methods and navigational practices could pose danger to the life of fishermen and the crew onboard fishing boats and smaller vessels. Apart from the perils of the sea, preservation of

them as they are but slowly molding them to be good persons and children of God. This is how the parents can gain their children’s trust and confidence in an increasingly meaningful way. Children are usually observant of their parents and tend to imitate them even automatically. If they see their parents praying and how that prayer is helping their parents, making them happy and at the same time able to cope with all the challenges of life, then the children will just develop a love for prayer and the a love for cultivating a life of faith and hope. How parents react to the different events

and circumstances of life, both good and bad, happy and sad, is also how the children will learn to react in similar events and circumstances. That’s why parents really have to spend time with the children. They should see to it that they organize their life, especially in the aspect of their profession and other social obligations, such that the quality time with the children is not compromised. They have to cultivate healthy family practices and traditions to foster family life, and to exercise parental authority effectively, and even with the children not noticing it.
