Heavy responsibilities, no funding Second of a series By INA ALLECO R. SILVERIO of Bulatlat.com

GAITE said what Aquino refuses to acknowledge is how the agency is ill-equipped and its technology is outdated. Pagasa’s mandate and functions are comprehensive and heavy. In a report on its website, the agency is said to carry the task of maintaining a nationwide network pertaining to observation and forecasting of weather and other climatological conditions affecting national safety, welfare and economy. It also undertakes activi-

ties relative to observation, collection, assessment and processing of atmospheric and allied data for the benefit of agriculture, commerce and industry. The agency is also tasked to engage in studies of geophysical and astronomical phenomena essential to the safety and welfare of the people; as well as undertake researches on the structure, development and motion of typhoons and formulate measures for their moderation. Another heavy function of Pagasa is to maintain linkages with local and international scientific organizations and promote exchange of scientific information and cooperation among personnel engaged in atmospheric,

geophysical and astronomical studies. For all intents and purposes, however, Gaite said even as Pagasa has a Modernization Law and a Magna Carta for employees, both remained unfunded and ultimately useless. Gaite said that besides pushing for benefits for state workers, Courage continues to actively campaign for a a P6,000 ($142) increase in their minimum pay. The current minimum pay (or Salary Grade 1 Step 1) is only P9,000 ($ 214) when the mandatory deductions for the Government Social Insurance System (GSIS) , Philhealth and PAG-IBIG premium payments, withholding tax and others have HEAVY/PAGE 11

A BILL that would define the legal framework to facilitate the speedy transit of humanitarian aid destined for other states affected by disaster was filed in the House of Representatives for immediate approval. Rep. Rufus Rodriguez, 2nd District of Cagayan de Oro City, a legal framework is necessary in the transit of humanitarian aid in the international and domestic level in order to avoid delay. Rodriguez said House Bill No. 438 also known as, ‘International Disaster Relief and Initial Recovery Assistance Act are very important in preparation for the Philippines to possibly ask international assistance to respond to future disasters. If such an event occurs, global experience shows that an affected state will benefit from a clear legal framework for the entry and coordination of international humanitarian assistance, Rodriguez added.

He said the legal framework would balance safeguards for public security and safety against the urgent needs of those affected by the disaster. The bill intends to help the Philippines address some of the legal and regulatory issues that commonly arise concerning international

assistance during disasters, Rodriguez said. These issues relate to the entry and operation of assisting international actors, and to the coordination of their assistance, especially in the relief and initial recovery period, he said. The proposed bill cited the delays in the entry of international humanitarian personnel, goods, and equipment due to requirements of customs and immigration laws. Imposition of duties, tolls, and taxes on relief items and problems granting legal recognition of foreign qualifications for specialize professionals. Rodriguez said the bill also would correct difficulties in granting legal recognition for foreign humanitarian organizations to allow them to open bank accounts, hire local staff, lease premises, and other legal actions necessary for efficient in-country assistance.

Completely new platform for upgraded Kia Sorento • Stronger bodyshell, high-tech equipment and new look for popular CUV • European premiere on September 27 at Paris Motor Show WHEN the new upgraded Kia Sorento CUV goes on sale later this year in most markets, it will incorporate significant changes which include a completely new platform, enhanced powertrains for better fuel economy with lower emissions, improved ride, handling and refinement, additional convenience and safety features, plus a fresh, new look for the exterior. “Since its introduction in 2009, the second-generation Kia Sorento has achieved more than 620,000 sales around the world. This success came after the global sales of almost 900,000 units achieved by the original 2002 Sorento which was a ‘landmark’ vehicle in the history of our brand, starting the process of changing public perception of Kia as a maker of small cars,” commented Thomas Oh, Kia’s Executive Vice President & COO of the International Business Division. “During the last decade, Sorento has earned widespread media and public acclaim and attracted thousands of customers to Kia who had not previously considered our brand. While creating upgraded Sorento we have given very careful attention to owners’ feedback, and the result is a new Kia model which is not just a cosmetic exercise but represents a major step forwards for our popular CUV,” added Mr. Oh. “Despite the current economic uncertainties in some markets, we are confident that upgraded Sorento with its fresh look and significant improvements will increase Kia’s share of the utility vehicle market, achieving annual global sales of 265,000 units from 2013,” concluded Mr. Oh. Introducing a fresh new look with premium appeal To give the upgraded Sorento a fresh look that reflected the new model’s stronger structure, premium quality and enhanced specification, Kia’s design team restyled the upgraded vehicle’s front and rear, creating larger areas of body-color surface. Careful attention to surface detailing cut aerodynamic drag

to Cd 0.34. Kia’s designers developed new front and rear bumpers with vertical-axis fog lights, a new front grille and headlamps with LED positioning lights, and a new tailgate with reshaped LED combination lamps. Depending on model, the Sorento’s profile can be enhanced with new, optional 10-spoke machine finished 19-inch alloy wheels. A new two-part glass panoramic roof with a single powered roller blind shade will be available. New high-tech features and top quality cabin trim Inside upgraded Sorento’s cabin, numerous enhancements create a refreshed ambience, with premium high-tech equipment available on some models and an extended choice of options. Access is improved by the lower ride height (-10 mm), and the cabin floor has also been lowered, increasing legroom by 30 mm (2nd row) and 9 mm (3rd row). The interior can be trimmed in black or beige cloth or leather. Inside the seven-seater cabin, there are more softtouch surfaces – with a satin chrome finish for the door handles, air-vent surrounds and switches – plus a new LCD instrument cluster, new center stack with 8-inch LCD display screen (7inch in Europe) and a new center console featuring a straight-gate selector with a leather-gear knob on automatic transmission models – reinforcing the vehicle’s more luxurious character. Premium options will include powered, heated and ventilated front seats, heated second row seat cushions, a Bluetooth® hands-free system, UV-reflecting solar glass, and air-conditioning for the third row seats.

Kia’s engineers have implemented a host of NVH (noise, vibration and harshness) reduction measures to ensure that upgraded Sorento boasts even greater refinement than the previous model, making it one of the quietest vehicles in its class. Enhanced powertrains cut consumption and emissions Kia’s upgraded Sorento will be manufactured in Korea with a wide range of different gasoline and diesel engines (from 150 to 280 ps) to meet the needs of motorists in every region of the globe. Acknowledging consumer trends, Kia has fine-tuned both the Theta II 2.4 GDI gasoline and R2.2 TCI diesel engines to improve their efficiency. The revised 2.4-liter Theta II GDI engine is fitted with a new cylinder head, pistons, fuel injection and intake systems. It generates 9% more power (192 ps) and 6.6% more torque (242 Nm), than the similar capacity MPI (multi-point injection) engine available in some markets, while delivering better fuel economy and lower emissions, from 199 g/km. The ‘R’ family of Kia diesel engines has become a popular consumers’ choice in a variety of Kia models all around world. In upgraded Sorento, the 2.2-liter, 197 ps TCI (turbocharged intercooler) engine features a new exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) system which reduces CO2 emissions – down to as little as 153 g/

km. Maximum torque is 436 Nm (automatic models) and 421 Nm (manual). In some countries, customers will also be offered Kia’s 3.5-liter Lambda V6 MPI (280 ps) and 2.4-liter Theta II MPI (176 ps) gasoline engines – while European Sorento buyers will be able to choose the smaller 2.0-liter R2.0 TCI engine with 150 ps. Six-speed gearboxes, plus choice of 2WD or 4WD Every upgraded Sorento model will feature a sixspeed transmission (manual or automatic) and a choice of 2WD (front-wheel drive) or 4WD (four-wheel drive) – depending on model – carried over from the previous model. The 2WD drivetrain offers a weight saving of approximately 60 kg – enhancing fuel economy. The 4WD drivetrain is an ‘on demand’ system that delivers 100% of engine torque to the front wheels during all routine city and highway driving. Whenever a front wheel loses grip a percentage of torque (up to 50%) is automatically transferred to the rear wheels. In severely slippery conditions the driver can select ‘Lock Mode’ which delivers 50% of torque to both the front and rear axles. Improved on-road performance, retained off-road capability Kia chassis engineers worked hard to ensure that while the upgraded Sorento gives rewarding responses to driver inputs, it also de-

livers a sophisticated ride/ handling balance to rival the best vehicles in its class. While the basic specification of the suspension is unchanged – front MacPherson struts and a multi-link set up at the rear – the subframes which support the suspension are completely new, stronger designs. They give more precise location of the suspension components and have revised mounting bushes to dampen vibrations. Larger suspension bushes, longer trailing arms at the rear and HPD (High Performance Dampers) work together to improve ride comfort and stability. For precise vehicle control and good ‘feel’, the upgraded Sorento’s steering is now more direct, with 2.95 turns of the wheel lock-tolock. Kia’s new FlexSteer™ system will be available as an option, providing Normal, Sport and Comfort modes with three different weights to match customer preference. Comfort mode is ideal for city driving. High safety standards with advanced ‘active’ and ‘passive’ systems When it was introduced in 2009, the second generation Sorento was awarded a 5-Star Euro NCAP safety rating. Today, official crash test standards in Europe are much tougher and Kia engineers re-visited the upgraded Sorento’s bodyshell structure and safety equipment to ensure high safety standards. Extensive revisions to

the bodyshell, which incorporates a higher percentage (25%) of ultra high-tensile strength steel (above 60 kgf/mm2) than most vehicles in its class, have improved front, side and rear impact protection. Hot stamping is used to heat steel to 900º C and press immensely strong components to produce ultra high-tensile strength steel with 150 kgf/mm2 that is used for the front bumper, center floor member and rear floor side members – improving crashworthiness. A bracing bar between the top of the front suspension towers is fitted and the bodyshell’s torsional rigidity has been raised by 18%, enhancing refinement and creating a stronger foundation for the suspension and steering, which benefits ride comfort and directional stability. Inside, the upgraded Sorento can be equipped with up to six front, side and curtain airbags, while for maximum stopping power, all upgraded Sorento models are equipped with larger diameter (320 mm) ventilated front disc brakes. Active safety technologies that upgraded Sorento buyers can specify will include ESC (electronic stability control), a reversing safety camera mounted on the tailgate with a 130 degree wide-angle lens, HID (high intensity discharge) Xenon headlamps and HAC (hill-start assist control), which prevents slip-back during stop-start driving on inclines. Customers will be able to specify radar-based BSD (blind spot detection), LDWS (lane departure warning system) using a camera above the windshield and SPAS (smart parking assist system) with ultrasonic sensors to control automatic parallel parking. Editor’s note: Specifications and features of upgraded Sorento contained in this press release are for Europe and the General Markets (Central and South America; Caribbean; Asia – excluding China and Korea; Pacific; Middle East; and Africa). Product information for the North America version of upgraded Sorento will be announced closer to on-sales date.

Editorial because while people are still recovering from destructions wrought by massive floods , all oil companies are thinking is how to jack up their profits. Malacañang and Congress should immediately approve measures removing or reducing the value added tax (VAT) on oil in order to prevent government from collecting windfall VAT revenues. The P3 planned increase by oil companies plus the preceding increases in the price of oil supposedly due to higher oil prices abroad will result in unfair and immoral windfall VAT rev-

enues unless we remove or reduce the tax, according to a partylist lawmaker. Windfall VAT is the additional revenues collected by government from unplanned increases in the prices of goods and services subject to VAT. It is an added misery to Filipinos already subject to artificially high prices of power and oil. The Big 3 oil companies are cruel because majority of Filipnos are still reeling from the onslaught of floods and calamities, yet they continue to impose unjust increases of prices of their fuel and oil commodities. President Aquino and the House leadership must not hesitate to approve

House Bill 6416 which aims to cut VAT rates by half in the prices of oil, power and water. If this Bill is approve, there will be no more price increase on fuel and oil. The bill aims to reduce VAT to 6 percent for electricity, water services, and oil and petroleum products, in order to provide immediate relief to consumers and the domestic economy. The 50 percent reduction of the VAT rate will bring down prices of oil products by as much three (3) pesos per liter, electricity rates by at least 38 centavos per kilowatt hour (kWh) for lifeline electricity users and at least 50 pesos in the bills of residential water users.

Any regrets? Think A Minute Jhan Tiafau Hurst were so happy and relieved to finally be free from their guilt. Feeling guilty is actually a good sign, because it means our conscience is healthy. But then we must follow our conscience and do the right thing to try and right our past wrongs. Otherwise, we will keep living with our painful guilt and regret. Maybe it’s apologizing and telling someone you’re sorry because you wronged and hurt them. Or paying back money and things you’ve stolen. You might need to for-

give someone else who wronged and hurt you, because you realize now that being right is not as important as your friendship with that person, or worth living with anger and unforgiveness in your heart. But just as important as it is to try and right our past wrongs with others, doing these things alone cannot make us right and give us peace with our Maker, God. Just like drinking Diet Coke doesn’t take away all the calories in the French fries and ice cream we

just ate. This is why Jesus Christ is our only hope. Jesus Himself said that the only way anyone can get completely free from their guilt and regrets to have peace with God their Maker, is we each must ask Jesus for His gift of forgiveness. Since you and I on our own cannot make all our past wrongs right by trying to be a good, even religious person. If we could, then God the Son would not have needed to become a human being to die and pay the penalty for all our wrongs. So won’t you ask Jesus to forgive you and set you free from all your guilt and regrets? Then ask Him to take full control of your life, so you can start living with a clear conscience and peace of mind for the rest of your life. Just Think a Minute.

Questions on Robredo crash LIFE’S INSPIRATIONS: “… He sent His word and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions…” (Psalm 107:20, the Holy Bible). -oooQUESTIONS ON ROBREDO CRASH: As the entire nation waits with bated breath for developments in the on-going search and, whether we like it or not, “retrieval” operations for Interior and Local Government Secretary Jesse Robredo, some questions must be answered with clarity right away. The first question: have the police already taken the statements of Robredo’s aidede-camp, Chief Inspector Jun Abrasado, and of the fishermen who rescued him? Those statements are very important, to enable the authorities to have a record

Kakampi mo ang batas Atty. Batas Mauricio of what really took place as the ill-fated Piper Seneca plane carrying Robredo, Abrasado, and the two pilots, Capt. Jesus Bahinting and Nepali Kshitiz Chand, developed engine trouble and finally crashed just about 500 meters away from the Masbate City Airport Saturday, 18 August 2012. This will prevent or correct conflicting stories from coming out later, especially stories which may tend to give some credence to wild claims by some, already published in social networking

sites, about a possible foul play in the incident. The authorities must strive to collect all evidence right now, which could shed light on what really happened. -oooDID ROBREDO AND AIDE MANAGED TO CALL OR NOT? The second question is: were Robredo and Abrasado able to call through their cellphones before the crash or not? While there are media stories saying they both called before the crash, some are saying they merely managed

to send text messages, not call. On August 18, 2012, at 9:32 p.m., the Inquirer.net posted a story that Robredo’s wife, lawyer Leni Robredo, confirmed the secretary called her. On 11:56 a.m., August 19, 2012, however, Press Undersecretar y Abigail Valte was quoted by the Inquirer.net as saying that what Robredo and Abrasado managed to send were text messages, implying quite clearly that what the two did before the crash was merely to send those text messages, and not call. These conflicting accounts will not help clear up the air, and can in fact fuel more speculations. Then, the third question is this: I remember that there were media accounts about Abrasado’s initial description of the CRASH/PAGE 7

Brittle bones OSTEOPOROSIS is one condition that we could do without. If one were to hold a bone in one’s hands, it wouldn’t be that easy to break it. As a matter of fact, I would need a bone saw just to cut it and be able to examine the innermost portions, and would require my energies to finish one! But, in osteoporosis, the bone is easy to break as it is weak and brittle. Normally, bone, being a living tissue is constantly absorbed and replaced. As people age, bone mass is lost faster than it is created. The inability to replace that which is lost may result into a weaker bone. It is during childhood and early adulthood that one should have invested in what we call his/ her bone bank, so that, when he/she ages, one can draw from its deposits and thus, minimize the risk of developing osteoporosis. With very little deposit to draw on, as one ages, then the probability of having the disease, is compounded if one were to have any of these risk factors: a history of osteoporosis in the family, medications like prolonged intake of steroids, and cer-

Men who are undergoing treatment for Prostatic cancer are likely to develop brittle bones too. The spine, hips and wrist are the most commonly affected bones. Back pains, a hunched forward posture and fractures are complications that is bothersome. It is worth remembering that to have a fracture at this age is so depressing as it limits one’s mobility and healing takes a longer period of time as compared to when one is younger and with no associated osteoporosis. To check on one’s risk for developing osteoporosis, one may undergo a test that will determine bone density. The most popular and common diagnostic tool that is simple to perform, with fast

have an impact on one’s future health status: eating foods rich in calcium( simple diets like sardines and green leafy vegetables like my favourite camote tops salad, is food for the bones), with the aid of sunlight and Vitamin D ( essential for the calcium to be absorbed by the body ), and exercise. Shying away from too much alcoholic beverages is important as alcohol interferes with the body’s ability to absorb calcium. And, when one reaches the age of 50’s and beyond, wearing sensible low heeled non slip shoes, and making one’s home a friendly and safe place to be: keeping the floors dry, free of unwanted electrical cords, brightly lit areas, and hand bars to hang on to. It is not the disease itself that should scare one , but, the physical disability. It doesn’t take much to invest in this so called bone bank. Keeping one’s self healthy by eating that which is rich in Calcium, coupled with the right amount of exposure to sunlight, and being physically active, will surely keep you able and capable when accounting time comes...

Bakit ayaw ng mga pari sa RH Bill? Sinulat ni DENNIS FELICILDA

E kc, lalabag daw sa utos ng Dios na “humayo kyo at mgpakarami”. Eh, kung ganun po pala e di sila pala mismo ang unang sumuway ng utos dhil BAWAL silang magasawa, di po ba?. E HINDI nman po PINAGBABAWAL ang pagAASAWA sa bible. Infact, e2 pa nga ang sinabi: 1st Corinthians 7:(1-2) & (8-9) : “It is good for a man not to touch a woman. (2) Nevertheless, because of sexual immorality, let each man have his own wife, and let each woman have her own husband.” “But I say to the unmarried and to the widows: It is good for them if they remain even as I am; (9) but if they cannot exercise self-control, let them marry. For it is better to marry than to burn with passion.” AT ANG MASAKLAP PA PO NYAN, SINABI PA NG BIBLE NA “ang sinuman daw magbabawal ng pagAASAWA ay turo daw ng demonyo. (pls read below bible verses): 1st Timothy 4:1-3 : “The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and THINGS TAUGHT BY DEMONS. (2) Such teachings come through hypocritical liars, whose consciences have been seared as with a hot iron. (3) They FORBID PEOPLE TO MARRY and order them to abstain from certain foods, which God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and who know the truth.” SO, ANO BA TALAGA?..

Doctor explains contraceptives’ link to unborn babies’ abnormal devt MANILA––At no other time has the birth control pill been given so much attention by the public as it has been the past year, and particularly the past week, as talk of contraceptives possibly contributing to the early death of a senator’s baby rages. Now a medical doctor provides more information explaining how oral contraceptives work to expel any newly formed life should the contraceptive mechanism of the pill fail (“break-through ovulation”), which may lead to abnormal development should the baby survive. Put simply, the developing baby in the mother’s womb ends up deprived of much-needed nutrition due to irregular uterine hormone levels caused by the pill, which “will have a negative impact on uterine preparedness for implantation. This will affect the baby’s development, which may result in abortion. If the fetus survives, congenital malformations can be manifested after the baby’s birth,” said Rey Echavez, M.D. In short, the cause of this deprivation of nutrition is hormonal contraceptives. “It is not the hormones per se [that directly affect the embryo] but the effects of the hormones in the process of implantation and

development. The moment the implantation is not correct, meaning no or deficient nourishment, such as less blood supply from the endometrium for the embryo, the development of the organs will be disturbed,” explained Echavez, the physician who headed the 1995 investigation of a World Health Organization (WHO)-Department of Health (DOH) government program that involved injurious tetanus toxoid vaccines administered to over 3 million Filipinas (the DOH stopped the program after the

case was decided). Not enough nutrition for the baby During pregnancy, a baby needs adequate nutrition for proper development – which is why pregnancy resources like magazines, websites, and videos are full of information on folic acid, calcium intake, no-raw-food reminders, and multi-vitamin supplements for expectant mothers. Little is publicized, however, about the consequences of hormonal contraceptives on fetal

development, on which Echavez expounded. One of the contraceptive pill’s mechanisms of action is making the endometrium (the innermost lining of the uterus) inhospitable to a fertilized ovum – in essence a human being in the first stages of life – thereby making it more difficult for the ovum to implant. However, should the ovum successfully implant, multiple effects of pill usage on the endometrium pose threats to proper development during the pregnancy. One example: deficient nutrient absorption. “No matter how much vitamins the mother takes, the baby can’t absorb the nutrients because of a hostile endometrium,” Echavez pointed out. “The endometrium is thin, avascular, less glandular and not well-developed to accept the blastocyst. Also, Gut Dysbiosis of the mother will reduce the absorption of nutrients for the baby even if the mother takes all kinds of vitamins.” It is not surprising, therefore, if the baby fails to develop normally during the pregnancy since nutrition is vital for the proper development of the body’s organs and systems (e.g. circulatory, nervous, digestive, reproductive), according to the doctor.

W HAT D I D R E S P O N D I N G F I S H E RMEN DO TO RESCUE ROBRED O? There are other questions, of course. Reports are saying that Abrasado’s arms got fractured during the crash, and yet, he was apparently able to swim out of the sinking plane, in the nick of time to save

himself from drowning. Then, despite his physical condition, Abrasado insisted on going back to the crash site, allegedly to help locate Robredo. Why did he do that? What is more, why is Abrasado, and the fishermen who were reported to have witnessed the crash, not being interviewed by

media---or, what maybe more appropr i ate, are not being allowed to be interviewed by the media? This is quite interesting, especially because of official statements that the crash was witnessed by these fishermen, so much so that they managed to res c ue Abras ado r ig ht away.

Echavez explained that though many other factors come into play, the bleeding some patients experience intermittently during the first trimester may also indicate problems with the embryo’s survival. Medication for ‘pampakapit’ “Management of obstetric cases also involves giving medication to stop bleeding. Sometimes ito yung tinatawag na ‘hindi makakapit ang baby’ kaya binibigyan ng ‘pampakapit’,” he said. During the times that the baby is in danger, a doctor gives something to the patient “para kumapit ang baby. Nasira na ang circulatory system tuloy. The baby’s development is affected because of this,” Echavez said. The inability of the embryo to implant properly into the uterus may be due to the pill’s effect on molecules that are called “integrins, which help in adhesion and which are normally found on the embryo and the uterine lining. The doctor explained that insufficient or the absence of these integrins is among the effects of taking birth control pills, and “if there’s no integrin, hindi makakadikit [ang baby]. In short, it is the abortifacient effect of the contraceptives,” he stressed. The suppression of ovulation

and prevention of fertilization are well-known mechanisms of action of oral contraceptives, so that equating the pill with abortion has been dismissed by advocates of free birth control as an attempt at “disinformation” and “scare tactics.” Even Senator Vicente Sotto III, who in his August 13 turno en contra speech attributed his infant son’s death to his wife’s use of oral contraceptives, has been met with remarkable criticism mainly because the other mechanisms of action of pills are unknown to many. Eleanor de Borja-Palabyab, M.D., president of Doctors for Life, insisted that this lack of understanding of the workings of hormonal contraceptives is the reason why more time should have been allotted for interpellations on the Reproductive Health (RH) bill in both chambers of Congress. “Not until the bill was being hotly debated in Congress have people become so aware of these issues, so that’s something good. But they should have continued interpellating further para maliwanagan ang marami pang mambababatas,” Palabyab said. “Kawawa ang mga pasyente, ang mga potential patients who will be receiving the effects and consequences of all this,” Palabyab added. (CBCP for Life)

Then, finally: if there were fishermen who went to the crash site to rescue Abrasado as the Pip er Seneca was sinking, and who were presumably told that it was Robredo who was in the ill-fated plane, did not t he f isher men become interested to go after the sinking aircraft and rescue Robredo right

away, especially considering that Robredo is not just a top official but a well-loved Bicolano as well? Questions, questions, questions. -oooREACTIONS? Please call me at 0917 984 24 68, 0918 574 0193, or 0922 833 43 96. Email: batasmauricio@yahoo.com.

Gold, mineral diggers: DENR’s mining dilemma By Joel Saracho EVEN before the Aquino Cabinet started working, skepticism met the appointment of Ramon Paje as Secretary of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), one of the most contested units in the executive branch. Environmentalist group Kalikasan-People’s Network for the Environment denounced the appointment of Paje, calling him “one of the mining czars of the Arroyo administration in promoting and implementing mining liberalization in the country.” Paje served as Undersecretary to former Secretary Horacio Ramos, and was in charge of forestry research. In addition, he served as Presidential Assistant on Mining and Executive Director of the Minerals Development Council (MDC), and was also part of the National Commission on Indigenous Peoples (NCIP). Pesante-USA, an organization allied with Kalikasan, described Paje’s appointment as “a bad omen for the incoming regime.” According to the militant group, Paje’s appointment as DENR secre-

tary indicates that the Arroyo administration’s policies and “revitalization” programs will continue, which is potentially against the interests of indigenous peoples and local miners, as Paje used to facilitate the privatization of mineral-rich lands and mining facilities. Raw material, additional income Interestingly, mining was DENR’s showcase under the previous Arroyo administration. In his report prior to the takeover of the new government, former Secretary Ramos boasted that mining investments in the country reached USD2.8 billion (P130.37 billion). Ramos said the revitalization program initiated by former President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo through Executive Order 270 (EO 270) or the National Policy Agenda on Revitalizing Mining in the Philippines was a major factor to the increased inflow of investments. Arroyo was even conferred the “Ang Minero” Award by the Philippine Mine Safety and Environment Association (PMSEA) for her “unparalleled leadership and support in bringing

enlightenment to government agencies and private companies to review and align their ways alongside the principles of sustainability and responsible mining, opening the door to equitable growth and enlightened investment,” much to the consternation of anti-mining activists. Mineral extraction is one of the country’s most lucrative enterprises, and according to the Philippine Economic-Environmental and Natural Resources Accounting (PEENRA), the country is one of the world’s richly endowed countries in terms of mineral resources. In its 1st Quarter 2010 report, PEENRA said that mining and quarrying is the third largest contributor to the growth of national industry (0.57 percentage points), following manufacturing (14.1 percentage points) and construction (0.61 percentage points). Mining and quarrying grew by 7.4 percent from 19.2 in 2009, “largely contributed by the increased production of coal, other non-metallics and nickel,” the PEENRA report said. In addition, “other

It’s more fun in PH: Higher tourist arrivals recorded in first half of 2012 By Janvic Mateo THE Department of Tourism (DOT) announced this week that over 2.14 million tourists have visited the Philippines in the first 6 months of the year, attributing the 11.68 percent year-on-year increase to the successful “It’s More Fun in the Philippines” campaign. “The Philippine tourism industry is beginning to enjoy an international renaissance,

which has the capacity to propel the country into one of the region’s best performers over the next decade,” DOT Secretary Ramon Jimenez said “With PhP 1.99 trillion projected receipts by 2016, we can look forward to seeing tourism become not just an economic activity, but an entire industry driving inclusive and sustained growth in the country,” he added. The 2.14 tourist arrivals recorded from January to June

2012 was 11.68 percent higher than the 1.919 million recorded in the same period last year. However, this was less than half of the 2012 target of 4.6 million tourists. “We expect to see more tourists during the peak season before the year ends,” said Jimenez, adding that “current policy reforms to facilitate entry; infrastructure development to improve travel within the country; fresh investments to expand transportation, ac-

commodation, and recreation facilities; and product enhancement... will help realize our year-end target of 4.6 million visitors.” Presidential Spokesperson Abigail Valte also expressed confidence that the country will reach the target. “We are hoping that we would achieve our target… It looks like we’re making good progress on that,” she said.

Gov’t, firm signed pact vs child labor By BEN D. ARCHE, Regional editor-Davao

DAVAO City––The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) and a Davao del Sur-based Japanese company signed an agreement to join hands in the fight against child labor. Labor secretary Rosalinda Baldoz, company president Yoshimi Nakayama and executive vice president Akihiro Ushimaru signed the memorandum of understanding (MOU) at the office of Nakayama Technology Corporation (NTC) recently. The offices and the main plant of NTC popularly known as manufacturer and exporter of tiles, ceramics

and other households’ wares is located in Barangay Cogon, Digos City. Labor undersecretary Lourdes M. Transmote and DOLE regional director Joffrey Suyao witnessed the signing of the pact. “The DOLE is happy to join hands with Nakayama Technology Corporation in taking firm and committed action to promote and carry out the DOLE’s child laborfree barangay campaign in Davao del Sur,” Baldoz said. The company is supporting the drive of the government in preventing and eventually eliminating the worst forms of child labor,

describing the company’s anti-child labor efforts as the highest exercise of corporate citizenship, Nakayama said. Under the MOU, the company, through its Corporate Social Responsibility program, commits to extend its support to the DOLE’s Project Angel Tree by making this as one of its regular CSR programs. Nakayama said that through Project Angel Tree, NTC will provide educa-

for R

tional supplies, through the DOLE Davao Del Sur Field Office, for child laborers/ beneficiaries in priority barangays in Davao del Sur. The project is an intervention program aimed at preventing children from becoming child laborers by giving them the opportunity to attend or go back to school. Child laborers are provided with school supplies under the project.

consists of short term, middle-term and long-term programs. The short term assistance will take the form of cash assistance to be provided by the DSWD, the middle term aid in the form of livelihood and the long term to come from the other government agencies, in the form of empowering the beneficiaries and enabling them to get stable livelihood. Amante said Budget Secretary Butch Abad had already committed support for some students for this year’s second semester. DTI-Agusan del Norte director Gay Tidalgo said villages will be set up in Barangays Pagatpatan and Libertad as well as 30 huts for mushroom culture. DSWD-Caraga director Mercedita Jabagat said she was expecting some 8,000 people to benefit from her office’s conditional cash transfer program. In his message, Vice Mayor Lawrence Lemuel Fortun said the city government was not alone after all in its campaign against illegal logging. Government agencies “are one with us in this campaign. At the end of the day, the public and everyone need to join in this effort to help our people in distress”. He quoted the late DILG Secretary Jesse Robredo, who said: “Convergence of efforts include the ordinary people whose foresight is tomorrow and the future. We work as one people to let things move.”

In a report in Malaya, PWEA’s Agustin said the employees of Pagasa are demoralized. “It’s difficult to accept that our long-standing request that the DOST and the government immediately release our Magna Carta benefits has not been acted upon. We have long suffered trying to survive without these benefits; having these benefits taken away was a blow against our dignity, but we gritted our teeth and bore it because we wanted to show how important our service is for our fellow Filipinos,” Agustin said.

Lachica said a team of health personnel is now on the process of validating the situation before the health department can declare an outbreak of malaria. The illness started to emerge in Barangay Meybeo the first week of August and spread out to neighboring barangays, Dacalos told. Dacalos said the PHO has urged all the residents of the affected barangays to help avert the proliferation of the malady by cleaning their surroundings to destroy the dwelling places of malaria-carrier mosquito.
