Don’t let BIFF attacks derail ongoing peace process: Armm guv By APIPA P. BAGUMBARAN

MARAWI City, Lanao del Sur––The Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) called-on the peace panels of both the government and the Moro Islamic Liberation

Front (MILF) not to get distracted by the on-going clash in Maguindanao. In a statement, ARMM Governor Mujiv Hataman appealed to both peace panels not to allow the isolated incident to affect the encouraging gains in

the process. He also urged all stakeholders to help stop this latest round of violence and prevent its possible escalation. On the other hand, the regional governor also condemned the act of aggression

taking place in the towns of Datu Unsay, Ampatuan, and Shariff Aguak involving the Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters (BIFF). “The act is especially reprehensible during this time of the Holy Month of Ramadhan, when de-

of the holy month,” he said. The ARMM governor also said the BIFF should uphold Islamic values and respect for civilian lives more than any other interest and to exhaust peaceful means to address valid grievances.

2 men jailed for killing cousin By MANUEL ALEMAN Correspondent

CAGAYAN de Oro City–– Two men are now languishing in jail after the police arrested them for killing their cousin at dawn on Sunday in Barangay Pagatpat. Sr. Insp. Eldie Gacus of Bulua police precinct said murder charges are now being filed before the City Prosecutor Office against Junie Pimentel and Jessie Pimentel. Gacus said the two suspects were arrested inside their residence hours after they hacked to death a certain Antonio Legaspi. He said the suspects were packing up––apparently preparing to escape from the crime that they committed––when the police caught them up. The police said Legaspi was last seen having a drinking spree with Junie and Jessie Pimentel. After consuming three bottles of hard liquor, the victim and the suspects engaged in verbal tussle that led to the killing, said the police. Police said the victim succumbed to single hack wound on his neck. The bloody incident happened at around 1 a.m. on Sunday––and two hours later, the suspects were arrested by the police. It was learned that Legaspi is celebrating as he is about to marry his long-time girlfriend. His dream of marrying his girlfriend will no longer be materialized following his untimely death.

Farmer-paralegals join hands with DAR-North Bukidnon MALAYBALAY City–– Twenty farmer-paralegals from Malaybalay City and Sumilao are set to work hand in hand with the Department of Agrarian Reform particularly in North Bukidnon to distribute the identified problematic landholdings in the two aformentioned areas. The farmers underwent a four-month course (from Feb. 27 to June 15, 2012) dubbed Paralegal Training on Agrarian Reform Laws/ Policies, Human Rights and Skills Enhancement

on Agrarian Reform Implementation. The training involved various aspects of agrarian reform and other related laws such as the qualifications and selection of beneficiaries, and the process of land acquisition and distribution (LAD) as provided in new DAR issuances. The trainees were also provided with adequate fundamental skills in legal research, interview, evidence gathering and documentation. As part of the course, the trainees were asked to

prepare community plans and specific activities for their respective communities. One of the trainees, Deogracias C. Baysa from Sumilao, Bukidnon expressed his appreciation that DAR has recognized the capability of the farmers to complement its efforts in terms of land acquisition and distribution. Together with the other farmer-paralegals, he considers it a welcome challenge as they accept their roles to hasten the LAD process.

OROQUIETA City, Misamis Occidental––The governor here has called on the residents of Misamis for their cooperation in the preservation and conservation of the Mt. Malindang range natural park’s (RNP) rich biological diversity. Governor Herminia M. Ramiro sounded the call following the launching of the Mt. Malindang RNP as an Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Heritage Park (AHP), during the 2nd National AHP Conference held in the city, early this month. “Biological diversity means the wealth of life forms found inside the range and the millions of different plants and micro-organisms, the genes they contained and the intricate ecosystems they form,” she said. The governor received the “Plaque Recognizing Mt. Malindang RNP as an ASEAN Heritage Park of the Philippines” from the ASEAN Center for Bio-Diversity (ACB) represented by a team headed by Dr. Filiberto S. Pollisco, ACB program management specialist. “I feel very much elated for this very significant and historic occasion of launching the Mt. Malindang RNP as an AHP because it now clearly defines how we should be able to protect its vast resources for the people of today and those of the future to enjoy,” she said. With the governor in receiving the award was Corazon Galinato, regional executive director of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) and Belen Daba, regional technical director of the Protected Area and Wildlife, Coastal Zone Management Service, Region 10, and Eden C. Pito, Mt. Malindang RNP protected area superintendent. Also in the event to witness the launching was Secretary Nereus Acosta, presidential adviser on environmental affairs, who authored Republic Act No. 8978, otherwise known as “The Mt. Kitanglad Range Natural Park Act of 2000” when he was the congressional representative of the 1st District of Bukidnon, also of Region 10. philippine information agency

Paner, EVP and Head of Global Banking; Jose Teodoro Limcaoco, BPI Family Savings Bank President; Gil A. Buenaventura, SEVP and Chief Operating Officer; Natividad Alejo, SVP and Head of Consumer Banking; and Alfonso Salcedo, EVP and Head of Corporate Banking.

BPI announces first half 2012 operating results THE Bank of the Philippine Islands (BPI) reported a net income of P9.4 billion for the first half of the year, 52% higher than the P6.2 billion realized in the same period last year. This translated to a 21% Return on Equity and a 2.3% Return on Assets. Net income for the second quarter was P3.6 billion, 8% higher than a year ago due to the 9.4% increase in net interest income but tempered by the higher tax line. Both non interest income and operating expenses were relatively flat against the same quarter last year. For the first semester, the significant growth in profits was mainly driven by the 24% improvement in revenues. Net interest income rose by 9% while non-interest income surged by 51%. Improvement in net interest income was due to the combined effect of a P32 billion increase in average asset base and a 14 bps improvement in net spreads. Non-interest income was boosted by the extraordinary level of trading gains realized in the first quarter of the year as the Bank sold down its securities inventory.

O p e r at i n g e x p e n s e growth slowed down to 9% with increases registered across all categories of expenses. Impairment loss and income taxes remained to be ahead of the previous year by P438 million and P159 million, respectively. Loan growth from all segments was sustained as net loan portfolio reached P480 billion, 17% higher than a year ago. Both the middle market and SME segments contributed a 19% growth while the top corporate segment went up by 15%. Consumer lending increased by 17%. Despite the double-digit growth in portfolio, asset quality continued to improve with net 30-day NPL ratio at 1.4% from last year’s 1.8%. Reserve cove r was 140.7% Total intermediated funds amounted to P1.46 trillion as the Bank’s total deposits stood at P734 billion with growth coming largely from low cost deposits. Assets under management was P730 billion, a 15% growth from last year. BPI’s market capitalization was P265 billion at end of June and remains the largest among domestic banks. Its Basel 2 Capital

Adequacy Ratio (CAR) was 14.5%. Mr. Gil A. Buenaventura, Senior Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of BPI commented, “We are happy to see that loan growth has remained resilient though slightly below the first quarter performance. We expect challenges going forward especially on our net interest margin with the recent cut in the BSP overnight borrowing rate. We will however try to seize opportunities given the continued domestic economic growth, notwithstanding the impact of the Eurozone slowdown. At this point in time, we are on track with our target of delivering a sustainable 15% return on equity.” Addressing the media on the bank’s first half operating results and significant growth in profits are (left to right) Antonio V.

Public, private sectors meet to improve Mahinog’s economy By HOMER R. JAJALLA

MAHINOG, Camiguin––Local government officials and leaders of private sectors participated today in the Local and Regional Economic Development (LRED) Sensitizing Workshop conducted by the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) at Queobe Eco Park and Training Center. The workshop, the first in a series of four different workshops to be facilitated by the DTI, aims to identify and implement local projects to boost local economy, especially those that can be done from six months to one year.

DTI Provincial Director Joselito S. Enot said he sees the potential of Mahinog as an emerging growth area in Camiguin. He said the presence of the principal port in Benoni gives the municipality a competitive advantage over other towns in the province. In addition to the port is the presence of tourist destinations like Mantigue island and zipline in Benoni lagoon, which can be compared to other prime destinations in the country. If fully tapped, these potentials can bring in more economic development MEET/PAGE 11

Let us, Cagayanons; be aware of the black propaganda hurled against our elected leaders by people who wants to rule us in the guise of honest intentions. We should not believe in tainted stories published in newspapers or heard over polluted air lanes. We must bear in mind that election season is near and people obsessed to gain power will do everything to sway public opinions to their side either with deception or with lies. We should not fault some members of the press who have clearly manifested their biases under pretext of ‘valid news.’ After all, these people are using the neutrality of the press to express their fair and honest intentions to serve their masters. Let us commend media people who only see fairness in their slanted news reports to please favored personalities in politics. The people of Cagayan de Oro are aware of all these handiwork of hypocrites who pretend to be without skeletons in the closet. We, Cagayanons, should unite so that we could effectively protect our gains through the years of toils and hard work. We must be aware that some groups are out to destroy our sense of pride. That these groups are using every means – the media and social networking sites – to discredit our elected officials. We cannot but issue a precaution since these people are very same people elected once in public offices. However, these public officials are discards in succeeding elections for their failure to serve the masses of our people. Now, with the election season heating up, these calloused politicians are up again in their usual antics – deceive the public through fabricated lies and fabricated charges. Well, that is the other side of the story. In some parts in Cagayan de Oro’s rural barangays, a politician from Misamis Oriental has also started campaigning. Gov. Oscar Moreno, of Misamis Oriental, who earlier declared intention to run for Mayor in Cagayan de Oro City, has put up nationally funded projects in Cagayan de Oro City. There is nothing wrong with that. The only difference was that the project was for Misamis Oriental. Obviously, the people of Misamis Oriental have reasons to protest with that act of betrayal. Cagayanons are aware of this braggadocio. As usual, the people of Cagayan de Oro would always get rid of Moreno’s empty boastings.

MIC project seen to draw more investors C A G AYA N D E O R O CIT Y - Determined to bring about agro-industrial development and spur investment in the country, the Philippine government ventured into a partnership with the Korean government in the establishment of MultiIndustry Clusters (MIC). The said strategy is initiated by the Korean government with the hopes of causing economic growth by generating employment in the rural areas that will alleviate poverty as well as promote food security through the establishment of agro-based industries, thereby also strengthening the relationship between two countries. The Korean government granted the Philippines with a Corn Processing Complex as a pilot project under the MIC located in Malagana, Claveria, Misamis Oriental. The facility is expected to fully operate early next year and is deemed to help local farmers in marketing their produce and reduce postharvest losses due to

With the near completion of the said pilot project, a planning workshop was recently conducted to establish a Regional Technical Working Group (RTWG) that will deal with the possible boost of investors that will be

heightened as soon as the commencement of the project. The meeting tackled on the emerging issues with the implementation of MIC and it seeks to craft the guidelines in dealing with potential investors. Among t he issues raised is on the overlapping tenurial instruments, facilitation in the entry of investors and Local Investment Code,

community awareness on the MIC Project and disclosure of agricultural practices to be employed by an investor. The roles of the RTWG members were also streamlined and were given emphasis to resolve such issues. In line with these emerging issues, the newly created RTWG will strengthen the implementation of MIC by conducting stakeholders consultation and

dialogues, delineating potential MIC areas, creating a one stop hub for complete and relevant information and checklist of requirements for investors and conducting regular RTWG meetings. The workshop was attended by representatives from the provincial and municipal local government units of Misamis Oriental and Claveria, Department of Environ-

Will Joeboy Aquino compromise? BUTUANONS have confirmed of Rep. Joe ‘Boy’ Aquino’s intention to run for the mayoral post in Butuan City next year. Joeboy will slug it ‘head on’ against incumbent Mayor Ferdinand Amante, Jr. Most Butuanons agree that Joeboy is a ‘mayoral timber.’ By the way, ‘Joeboy’ is still in the second term as Rep. of the Butuan City’s lone district. He still has three more years to serve his last term in Congress. In other words, Joeboy could still run Cris Diaz for re-election in Congress. Joeboy’s plan to run for Mayor makes Butuanon wonders. Many think Joeboy is not yet ripe for Mayor. In fact, most of Joeboy’s trusted people are not agreeable to Joeboy’s mayoral adventure. They said Joeboy in Congress is unbeatable. Why run for Mayor against the Amantes? These political pundits may have reasons to worry. There worries are base on solid grounds. First, the Amantes are almost in total control of Agusan Del Norte’s political map. With incumbent Governor Erlpe Amante in Agusan Del Norte, Sister Rep. Angelica Amante-Matba of Agusan Del Norte, and Cousin Mayor Ferdinand Amante, Jr. of Butuan City, the Amantes had cornered the province politics. Anyone who would run against the Amantes on any elective post in Agusan Del Norte would be in ratio of 1:3 in the political battlefield. Such challenge must have fired up Joeboy’s political instinct. Winning against the Amantes is like winning‘mega lotto,’ so to speak. However, Joeboy’s instinct will not lead him to election victory. Relying on instinct is just like looking at the stars in search of nothing. Maybe, instinct is necessary in making a decision in life and death situation. Politically speaking, Joeboy is not in a situation where his career as a politician is threatened. As what political observers had said, ‘Joeboy is unbeatable in Congress.’ Something must have pushed Joeboy to run for mayor. Perhaps, against his will but to accommodate a political indebtedness. Well, that idea may be off tangent. Nonetheless, there next to impossible things that happened in politics. Joeboy could be a victim of political accommodation where his personal political career could be the only means to be at stake. Will Joeboy accede to political pressure? There are reasons that this corner will reveal in the next few days. React:

Statement on RH Bill EVERY birth is a gift from God; every new life, a blessing, every birth a cause for rejoicing and praising God who create new life only out of love. Our country’s positive birth rate and a population composed of mostly young people are the main players that fuel the economy. A fact that even the government itself acknowledges as it is determined to feed, educate and keep the young people healthy. And rightly so, for even our Constitution acknowledges that human resource is a primary source of social and economic force. Earlier this year, the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas reported that the hard-

Statement earned salaries of overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) that were sent to their families for the first 11 months last year amounted to $18.3 billion, which is 7.3 percent increase in the same period in 2010. Filipino men and women who endure the travails of working in foreign soil play a significant role in propping up our economy. The country’s robust population is a big push to our economy, according to former US president Bill Clinton, local and international financial institutions and the public sector. It is therefore quite dis-

turbing when the country is told that having too many school children is a burden to the national budget. Can we have enough of schooled, skilled, diligent and highly driven young people who are a driving force of economic progress? The draconian population control policy of the reproductive health bill would only curtail our economic growth. The problem of countries with former robust economies is the lack of young workers for their industries and inadequate support for their aging population. The issue in maternal death as it has been mentioned is a serious concern. But the solution does not

lie in suppressing births as provided in the RH Bill. Providing proper and adequate maternal care could be done without passing the RH bill, but by strengthening and improving access to existing medical services. There is an ill portent for the nation when the government does not look at its own population as a source of grace and blessing. There is a grave reason to worry when the government would rather suppress the population through RH bill instead of confronting the real causes of poverty. +JOSE S. PALMA, DD Archbishop of Cebu President, CBCP

The truth hurts THINK a minute. Henri Latour was the greatest detective in France during the 19th century. He was a mastermind at finding evidence and clues, then fitting it all together to find the criminal and bring him to justice. But mysteriously, this living legend’s career suddenly ended. Detective Henri Latour was called to the scene of a horrible, violent crime. An old couple had been robbed and brutally murdered. The police had already arrested a suspect. But shortly after studying the crime scene and evidence, Latour’s instincts convinced him that the police had arrested the wrong man. He promised the police and the family that he

Think A Minute Jhan Tiafau Hurst would find the missing pieces of the puzzle and the murderer. So began what many have called the most brilliant tracking of a criminal in the history of France. Henri Latour carefully gathered all the different pieces of evidence, one piece at a time, until he finally found his man and criminal. The newspapers praised Latour’s brilliant detective

work and spread the news of his fame all over France. Then suddenly, after solving that case, Latour retired and moved away. In fact, he lived alone for the remaining 25 years of his life. You see, it was only after he died that the true identity of the last criminal Latour tracked down was made known to the public. In his last case, Latour had refused to back down from the truth, even when

his investigation revealed and proved that the murderer was none other than Latour’s own son. Sometimes the truth can be very painful. But sooner or later we each have to face it: we’ve done some things wrong in our life. And until we admit this fact to our Maker, we’ll never be free from our guilt. It’s then we realize that the price we pay of hurting our pride is nothing compared to losing our relationship with our Maker. And the only thing we have to do is ask Jesus Christ for His forgiveness and new life. Then with Him in charge, we can start changing and living His way, which is the only way we’ll ever have peace of mind and be free. Just Think a Minute!

No end in sight to the crisis By BENJIE OLIVEROS of

NEWS about the world economy have been bleak once again for the nth time in the past few years since the housing bubble imploded in 2007–2008, which sent financial investment houses and banks on the brink of collapse and further worsened the situation of the stagnant industrial manufacturing sector. Just recently, the Finnish Prime Minister Jyrki Katainen called on European leaders to end the “panic mentality,” which emanated from the sovereign debt crisis plaguing not only European Union economies but the US and Japan as well. He said the “panic mentality” is making things worse for heavilyindebted countries such as Spain and Italy, as well as Greece, Ireland, Portugal, among others, as bond yields

are unfairly high, thereby pushing up interest rates and borrowing costs. He added, “We need the market economy to work again in financial markets.” (Signs of market manipulation? Are you surprised?) In Europe, unemployment in 17 Eurozone countries stood at 11 percent. The Eurozone members are the 17 European Union countries, out of the 27, that use the euro as its currency. In the UK, the economic outlook further dimmed as England’s GDP shrank by 0.7 percent in the 2nd quarter of 2012. According to a July 31 report published by The Guardian, “The main issues facing the UK economy were the impact of rising prices on real incomes, ‘the confidence shock’ from the eurozone, and a greater impact from the financial crisis on output than previously thought.” Japan is no better off.

It is deeply in debt, having one of the worst GDP to debt ratio at 228 percent. Export demand is still low and prospects of a recovery are dim as Europe and the US, which are big markets for Japanese goods, struggle with their own crisis. Add to this the shifting out of Japanese companies of production overseas thereby resulting in a worsening trade balance. The trade deficit of Japan in January reached 1,275 billion yen, exceeding the 967.9 billion recorded in January 2009 and by far the highest since recording began in 1979. In the US, Bloomberg reported that what is being considered as a fragile economic recovery is making another downturn with the GDP down to 1.5 percent from 2 percent in the previous three months. Manufacturing has contracted in July. And according to an interaksyon report, “factory

orders fell 0.5 percent in June after rising by the same margin the prior month as demand for a range of items such as motor vehicles, machinery and computers sagged.” The jobs report has been disappointing with a mere 80,000 jobs created. Unemployment is still at a high 8.2 percent with 12.7 million unemployed and the claims for unemployment benefits, according to the interaksyon report, increased by 8,000 to a seasonally adjusted 365,000 claims. The interaksyon report also revealed that employers announced 36,855 planned job cuts last month, bringing the number of layoffs up by 2.5 percent compared to the same period last year. The US is also suffering from chronic underemployment, currently standing at 15.3 percent, with one out of three youths underemployed and half of new CRISIS/PAGE 7

The inconvenient truth about mining in C. de Oro By NIXON BABAN Contributor

(After listening to Atty. Christian Monsod today Aug. 2, during the Mining Forum held at the Cronin Hall of San Agustin Cathedral, we have arrive at some conclusions.) 1. Mining has not help address the mass poverty and the gross inequalities of income, wealth and political power. Mining Politics have replace Narco-Politics and have helped many unworthy politicians perpetuate themselves in power. The poor in Tuburan, Bikingon, San Simon, Dansolihon etc. remain to be poor and some have even started to manifest health conditions as the result of chemical poisoning; 2. Mining companies lied that Mining is a driver of our development and that it is an effective weapon in addressing mass poverty and gross inequalities in our country. The mining areas are not thriving communities and worst, the mining sites have degraded environments with the taxpayers

graduates either jobless or underemployed. Globally, the Telegraph reported that global manufacturing has slowed down because of the impact of the Eurozone debt crisis. Manufacturing contracted in China and Europe and slowed down in the US and Canada. Une mp l oy m e nt h a s hit the world’s youth the hardest. According to the International Labor Organization (ILO) nearly 75 million youths or 12.7 percent of people aged 15 to 24 would be out of work this year, up from 12.6 percent in 2011. It could have reached 13.6 percent in 2011 if the millions of youth who have put off or given up looking for jobs are included. The rate of joblessness among the youth is slowly moving toward the 75.4 million unemployed in 2009, when the crisis was at its peak. According to Gallup, underemployment stood at 17 percent of the world’s workforce while the ILO estimated that 6.1 percent or 202 million would be unemployed in 2012. Data from the revealed the China’s GDP during the first quarter of 2012 registered a 8.1 percent increase on a year-to-year basis and expanded by 1.8 percent compared to the

soon paying for the cost of their rehabilitation. The revenue collection rate on mining is even lower than the EVAT we pay for the products we purchase from the grocery or drugstore; We at Bangon Kagay-an are not against mining per se. We recognize that our lives are partly enhanced by

the end-products of mining. But the dangers of unabated mining are all too real: pollution, flooding due to siltation and diseases caused by mercury-poisoning. What we want is a moratorium, a STOP of all mining activities. We want to see Mother Nature able to breathe, to heal and preserve

itself so that future generations can make use of its life-changing potentials. During this breathing space, Bangon Kagay-an Inc. proposes a Mining Summit where a thorough discussion is done by all those who are and will be affected by indiscriminate mining activities. This proposed

previous quarter. This is a three-year low and a sign that China’s economy is slowing down. China is one of the biggest markets for consumer goods, having the biggest population in the world, and the base for manufacturing of a lot of MNCs because of its cheap labor. All data indicate that the world economic crisis is far from reaching a resolution. In fact, it is being described by analyst James Petras as “unrelenting.” The problem is, the sovereign debt crisis has limited the ability of governments to further inject bail out funds and to pump-prime the economy through more government spending.

American economist Nouriel Roubini has said in a July 9 CNBC report that “stalling growth in the U.S., debt troubles in Europe, a slowdown in emerging markets, particularly China, and military conflict in Iran – would come together to create a storm for the global economy in 2013.” He called this the perfect storm. Worse, no matter how hard mainstream economists and finance ministers of the world bang their heads, they still could not find a solution to the crisis. The solution could not be found in the liberal, free-market economics of Adam Smith and the monetarism of Milton

Friedman, nor could it be found in the demandside, pump-priming economics of John Maynard Keynes. In fact, regardless how loud governments, f inance ministers and economists of advanced capitalist countries have been singing hallelujahs to “free-market” neoliberal globalization and how hard they have been pressuring its neo-colonies and dependent countries to liberalize more, they have been trying a combination of monetarism, privatization, and deregulation, pump-priming and protectionist policies in their own countries. They are now running out of models such that

forum will involve the whole Cagayanon community with the aim of defining what responsible and irresponsible mining is and to come up with one common stand to preserve and protect our mineral resources from being raped by exploitative foreign businessmen and local political partners. The Gold Mineral Industry along Iponan River is estimated at P 180 M weekly or P 640 M monthly. How much of that money is poured back to our local economy? If there is somebody who must benefit from our mineral reserves, it should be the Cagayanon themselves. Not the Foreign Exploiters who are claiming Scarborough and the Spratleys, Manny Pangilinan, nor Philex or Lepanto Mining, the Koreans and who else. The people of Cagayan de Oro and the affected barangays can organized themselves into Mining Cooperatives with a local regulatory body to supervise the mining operations with the strict observance of pertinent laws and mea-

sures that will ensure that the bad effects of mining as stated above in (1) & (2) shall be avoided or mitigated. Then there will be an equitable distribution of wealth translated to less crimes related to poverty and more food on the table for Toto and Tata. How do we achieve this? The People Mining Summit will endeavor to come up with a covenant with all stakeholders such as the local & national government, business sector, indigenous people, farmers and barangay folks of the affected barangays and all other concerned sectors where everyone will commit to support this aspiration and vision. We will ask all aspiring political leaders in the city and in the national level to be part of this covenant and those who will not support this dream will not merit the Cagayanon vote in the 2013 elections. The Vision: With all the Gold in the hands of the Cagayanon people, we will be the next Singapore of Asia in 10 years.

Australian Treasurer Wayne Swan has declared, in a The Guardian UK report, that Bruce Springsteen is one of his economic heroes. Francis Fukuyama spoke to soon when he declared capitalism as “the end of history.” Perhaps Karl Marx was right all along when he declared that the crisis is rooted in the very foun-

dations of capitalism and Vladimir Lenin was right when he put forward the proposition that monopoly capitalism – or the stage when capitalist countries and their MNCs have divided the world among themselves – is moribund capitalism. They must be smiling in their graves right now. (

Mindanao biz group urged to ‘give back’ for the environment BUTUAN City––Delegates to the recently-concluded largest annual gathering of business leaders from across Mindanao were urged to take active stance in helping save the islandregion’s environment from further degradation. At the closing of the 21st Mindanao Business Conference held here recently, Mindanao Development Authority (MinDA) chair Secretary Luwalhati Antonino sought the active participation of the business sector in setting industr y standards for green technology. Antonino also asked Mindanao’s key business players to sustain efforts for environmental initiatives through their corporate social responsibility (CSR) programs, during

her speech at the concluding day of the conference, “Mindanao is host to eight of the major river basins in the countr y,” said Antonino, adding that major industries in Mindanao rely on these bodies of water for commercial and other purposes. She said that Mindanao’s environment is now facing serious challenges over decades of wanton logging, unregulated mining activities, illegal fishing practices, and unsustainable manufacturing activities by extractive industries. “Damage brought on Mindanao’s rich natural environment range from moderate to severe, some of which are irreparable,” said Antonino, citing data from the Mindanao 2020

Peace and Development Framework Plan (Mindanao 2020), Mindanao’s longterm peace and development roadmap formulated by MinDA in partnership with key line government agencies, private sector, and civil society groups across the island-region. Furthermore, Antonino stressed that Mindanao suffers from rotating brownouts owing to the critical condition of watersheds in Lanao del Norte and Bukidnon where the Agus and Pulangi hydro power plants are located. With only 23% forest cover left as of 2003, the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) disclosed earlier that Mindanao has already lost two thirds of its total forest cover over the years.

This problem has long been neglected, according to Antonino, pushing MinDA to put together the MindaNOW Nurturing Our Waters (MindaNOW) Program that seeks to integrate and harmonize a ridge-to-reef approach in managing and developing the island-region’s watersheds and river basins. “The MindaNOW Program provides platforms for public-private convergence and this is where multi-national companies and local business players can come in,” said Antonino. Antonino added that MindaNOW stakeholders all over Mindanao have started to plant trees in support to the National Greening Program of President Benigno S. Aquino III

being led by DENR. The program aims to plant 1.5-billion trees covering about 1.5-million hectares nationwide by 2016. “Here in Mindanao we don’t just plant the trees; we make sure they grow,” she said, citing tree-growing and adoption of watershed or mangrove areas as some of the activities that the Mindanao business sector can support. Antonino said that the environment is everybody’s concern, calling also local government units (LGUs) and civil society organizations to get involved. “ There’s a need for shared responsibility and accountability to protect and rehabilitate Mindanao’s heavily degraded environment. We need to

do something now before it’s too late,” she said. In 2011, approximately forty-one percent (41%) of Mindanao’s land area was devoted to agriculture and one-third or close to thirtyfive percent (35%) of its labor force is employed in agro-industry, fishery, and forestry sectors in 2010. The island-region contributes more than onethird to the national food requirements, producing many of the countr y’s top export commodities such as coconut, banana, pineapple, tuna, and other marine, aquaculture, and inland fish products. A m ong t h e i s l an d region’s top export destinations are the United States, Netherlands, Japan, China, South Korea and Singapore. MinDA

ICNHS: A market culture organization By OMAR QUIDLAT HUSSIEN

THE most remarkable and competitive advantage of a successful school is its organizational culture. The organizational culture is a major constituent of organizational development through which the school develops internal capacities and mechanisms to be most effective in its performance. Iligan City National High School is a huge organization composed of administrators, teachers, staff and students coming from various places in Mindanao. With its vision to be the center of Excellent Basic Education in Northern Mindanao; its mission to nurture and develop highly competitive and value-oriented students with quality basic education and to produce competent, responsible and law-abiding citizens of the community where they serve; and its objectives to serve the educational needs of the children of the middle and low income families, to offer a reasonably high quality education, and to provide students with learning experiences, ICNHS is primarily concerned not only with what is going on outside but with what is manifesting internally as well. The school is located in Gen. Wood Street, Barangay Mahayahay, Iligan City, near Tomawis Old Terminal and situated in front of Iligan City Central School. A study was conducted to determine the dominant organizational culture of ICNHS based on the assessment of the respondents using the Organizational

Perspective Culture Assessment Instrument (OCAI) which was electronically reproduced by the Pearson Education Inc., Upper Saddle River, New Jersey. The OCAI was a hasslefree tool for diagnosing organizational culture, developed by professors Robert Quinn and Kim Cameron. This was a validated instrument, based on the Competing Values Framework, and used by over 10,000 companies worldwide. By rating 6 key aspects of organizational culture that were found to determine success, the respondent assesses the current and preferred organizational culture. The outcome is based on the Competing Values Framework consisting of 4 culture types: Clan, Adhocracy, Market, and Hierarchy. Consequently, findings of the study have shown that majority of the respondents in ICNHS or 41.82% exhibited a market culture in the current situation. The strength of a market culture in ICNHS was determined by the number of points conceded to it. The market culture type exhibited by ICNHS is slightly strong. This finding is in agreement with what Cameron and Quinn have revealed about organizations that possess strong cultures associated with having homogeneity of effort, clear focus, and higher performance in environments where CULTURE/PAGE 11

Golez was shot three times and hit in the chest, right upper arm and neck, Guindulman suffered gunshot wounds in the lower left leg while Quiñonez sustained a bullet wound in the back of his right shoulder. The victims were brought to Surigao Medical Center and were scheduled to be transferred to Miranda Family Hospital. Authorities did not say where Matugas was during the shooting.

Kiblawan Police Office investigator identified the suspect allegedly as Barangay Kagawad Fernandez Suay Jr. who fled after the incident. At the height of their drinking session at around 11 p.m. inside the residence of the victim, Parantar said heated argument ensued which resulted to a shooting. The suspect drawn his .45 caliber pistol and shot the victim who died instantly with two bullet hits. Recovered from scene were empty shells of the pistol used in the crime. Kiblawan town law enforcers are now looking for the barangay official.

Nominees... from page 1

Earlier, JBC said that there was a need for a “unanimous vote” of the eight members of the JBC in order to dismiss the “privileged motion” questioning the integrity of some of the 20 nominees for the post of Chief Justice. Iloilo City (5th District) Rep. Niel Tupas, Jr., exofficio member of the JBC representing the House of Representatives, said that one of their colleagues in the JBC filed the “killer move” against De Lima, Solicitor General Francis Jardeleza and Securities and Exchange Commission

(SEC) Chairperson Teresita Herbosa. De Lima, Jardeleza and Herbosa have pending criminal and administrative cases. De Lima is facing disbarment case before the Integrated Bar of the Philippines (IBP) in connection with her alleged defiance of the temporary restraining order (TRO) issued by the SC on the watchlist order (WLO) against former President and now Pampanga (2nd District) Rep. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo. Under the JBC’s Rule 4, Section 5, any nominee with pending criminal or regular administrative cases, pending criminal cases in foreign courts, convicted on any criminal case or administrative case with a fine of not less than P10,000 is disqualified for appointment in any post in the Judiciary, Ombudsman or the Deputy Ombudsmen. Earlier, De Lima stood as one of the witnesses of the House prosecution panel in the impeachment case against Corona.
