Veterans Bank ties up with Koronadal for convenient ATM payroll service KORONADAL CIT Y – Continuing its aim to empower local government units nationwide, Philippine Veterans Bank signed recently a memorandum of agreement with the City of Koronadal whereby the bank will be providing the city with an automated teller machine (ATM) located at the City Hall. The deal also appointed Veterans Bank to be the depository bank for the payroll of the city’s contractual / job order employees. Under the terms of agreement, Veterans Bank will install an offsite ATM at the Koronadal City Hall allowing employees easy access to cash. Placing the payroll of contractual / job order

employees with Veterans Bank will ease the burden off the city as each employee will be issued a VeteranTeller ATM card which they can then use to withdraw their salary from any ATM. The installation of the ATM and the placement of contractual / job order employees’ salaries with Veterans Bank are initial services that the city has availed from the bank. It expects to engage the city with more banking services in the near future. Koronadal City Mayor Peter B. Miguel and City Treasurer Marloun C. Gumbao led the signing on behalf of the city while Veterans Bank was represented by EVP and Branch Banking

Group Head Jesus Vicente O. Garcia together with VP and Branch Central Services Head Alfredo B. Santiago, AVP and Mindanao Area Head Marie Jean J. Carranceja, and Veterans Bank Koronadal Branch Head Tranquilino C. Morante Veterans Bank has been expanding its services to both government and private clients nationwide, offering an innovative array of products and services. As an authorized government depository, the bank has been helping local government units by providing them with access to banking services to spur local growth and development. Veterans Bank is a private commercial bank owned by

World War II veterans and their descendants. It has 60 branches nationwide and also caters to private and

corporate retail markets. As part of its mandate, Veterans Bank allocates 20% of its annual net income for

the benefit of World War II veterans and their heirs through medical and livelihood programs.

Lanao Sur registration generally peaceful By: Armand Apolinario & Jessie Mongcal MSU, Marawi City – In a press conference at Marawi Resort Hotel, this city the other day, COMELEC Commissioner Armando Velasco announced the generally peaceful voters registration for ARMM and this province which was undertaken for ten days. Velasco said the 10-day general registration held from July 9 to 18, in the Autonomous Region of Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) particularly in Lanao del Sur province was orderly despite isolated incidents of harassment and near violence, like in the towns of Bayang, Lumbac-Unayan, Butig and Saguiaran. Velasco, with the presence of Provincial Election Supervisor (PES), Atty. Nassib Yasin; Col Daniel Lucero, Commander of the 103rd Brigade, PA and PNP Provincial Director, P/SSupt Romeo Magsalos, also reported that the so-called “flying registrants” from nearby cities and provinces had entered the ARMM area and managed to register despite massive information drives to discourage such irregularity Meanwhile, Col Lucero, also lauded the general registration in the entire Lanao del Sur as successful especially in maintaining security, and the implementation of a gun ban. “The gun ban will continue despite until July 31, and our

troops will remain on the ground until said date,” Lucero added. P/SSupt Magsalos also added that the exercise was peaceful and orderly despite some lapses that happened in some areas like Bayang town where four persons were wounded in an incident. “Our investigation on this case will continue and the report will be submitted, July 20. The PNP is doing its job and we will continue to abide with our mandates,” Magsalos said. PES Atty. Yasin also extended his thanks to the COMELEC from other Regions, the Election Officers (EOs) and others who helped them in the general registration in ARMM particularly in this province. “Cleansing will still continue to be undertaken by the Election Regulatory Board (ERB), to conduct evaluation on double or flying registrants which was a disturbing situation. ERB will ensure a clean registration of voters in the province. Velasco added that the ERB will do the cleansing with the help of the Comelec’s Biometric system to exclude flying registrants. “On Monday, last week, the COMELEC EnBanc approved in a meeting to finish the “cleansing works” within 2 months or before the end of September, this

year. Double registrants will be automatically cancelled in the lists and minors who had registered will also be taken out from the voters’ official lists. For the flying registrants there must be challengers with evidences and witnesses to prove a probable cause and the COMELEC will file a case in the court,” Velasco said. Col Lucero added that on July 18, his troops, the 65 IB had apprehended in Maguing town three passenger jeeps loaded with flying registrants from Iligan City. They took pictures of said persons that were apprehended. It was reported that the turn-out of the general registration was only 81% compared to previous registered voters in 2010. There were only 426,640 registrants this year, while in 2010, there were 521,413 registered voters according to Velasco. In a final statement, Commissioner Velasco thanked the AFP and Col Lucero for excellent performance, and the PNP and P/SSupt Magsalos, and the COMELEC personnel assigned in the fields. He also reminded the complainants to put into writing their oppositions, and submit the evidences to the COMELEC. “We will do an investigation with due process, Velasco said. During the affair, Col Lucero and P/SSupt Magsalos were given Recognition Awards for a job well done, by Velasco.

Who will stand for the lumads? THE National Commission for Indigenous Peoples (NCIP) is mandated under the Philippine Constitution to protect and promote the interest and well-being of the cultural tribes including the “lumads” (natives ) of Bukidnon. It is empowered to serve as the primary government agency through which the “Lumads “ can seek government assistance and as the medium, through which such assistance be extended; To review and assess the conditions of tribesmen including existing laws and ideas pertinent thereto and to propose relevant laws and policies to address role in national development; To formulate and implement policies, plans, programs and projects for the economic, social and cultural development of cultural tribes and to monitor the implementation ; To request and engage the services and support of experts from other agencies of government or employ private experts and consultants as may be required in the pursuit of its objectives; and To issue certificate of ancestral land/domain title. But look at what is happening now. Tribesmen in Quezon, Bukidnon nearly resorted to a bloody rampage because the NCIP has not given them the assistance due to them in their quest for retrieval of their ancestral lands. The Lumads of Bukidnon has a right to claim ancestral domain in lands which were originally inhabited by their ancestors. Lands that were instead leased by the national government to powerful and influential political clans that for decades were used as ranches. The Pasture Lease of Rancho Montaban of thousands of hectares of lands in Quezon,Bukidnon had already expired, and the government had apportioned said pasture lands to workers and other settlers as alienable and disposable lands, but excluded the Manobo tribesmen identified as TAMBOG-VILLANON CLAN (Tamvilca) as rightful claimants. What was worse according to the Lumads, was the deception of the NCIP. A leader of the said tribe claimed that an official of the NCIP made them believe that the Rancho Montalvan has been granted a renewal of their lease. Is this a case of deception or a maneuver by the still influential political family? Is the NCIP afraid of the Montalvans and the Fortiches? If the NCIP is inutile to help the Indigenous People such as the Manobo tribe, who will stand for them? Who will rally for their cause? Who will correct the injustice done to these native Filipinos who have been landless and without livelihood and agricultural domains for hundreds of years now? IT IS TIME FOR THIS ADMINISTRATION to look into the matter. A decisive action must be pursued or there would be bloodsheds in the countryside.

THINK a minute. What do husbands and wives need from each other? A best-selling book entitled, Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus, explains how men and women are different creatures. So for marriage to work, husbands and wives must know each other’s different needs before they can meet and fill those needs. It’s then they can have a satisfying marriage. Today we’ll let the ladies go first, and next time we’ll talk about husbands’ needs. Women basically need 3 things from their husband. Number 1: affection. Not just sex, but thoughtfulness, kindness, and yes, romance!

Think A Minute Jhan Tiafau Hurst Some of us men treat our wives like they’re just our housekeeper and lover! Friend, our wife needs our full attention and affection. So let her know how often and how much you think of her. Number 2: your wife needs conversation and friendship. One of the biggest disappointments that wives have is that their husband

almost never sits down and chats with them. And that their husband doesn’t treat them like a friend or equal. Number 3: Your wife needs faithfulness. Not just in providing money for food and a home, but faithfulness to her personally! Your wife needs to know that you’re a one-woman man! And that later you won’t trade her in like an

old car for a new model. God, Who invented marriage, also gave us His manual for marriage: the Bible. When all else fails read the manual! In the Bible Jesus Christ clearly shows and explains how husbands are supposed to love and serve the needs of their wife. But you’ll never have what it takes to satisfy and meet your wife’s needs until you ask Jesus Christ to forgive you for your selfcenteredness and let Him take full charge of your character. Only with Jesus’ strength and real love can you be the man and husband your wife needs. Just Think a Minute.

Women are from Venus

Kakampi mo ang batas Atty. Batas Mauricio The first post concerns the severe drought which the US is experiencing, to the point that some 1,297 counties (or towns and cities) across America have been declared by US Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack as “natural disaster areas due to severe dry conditions and scorching temperatures”. These 1,297 counties represent about a third of all US counties, Vilsack noted. The second post concerns the appearance of the

planet Mars in our skies for the whole month of August 2012, which is described as a phenomenon that no living person today will ever witness again. It is reported that Mars, usually visible only as a very small star, will be as big as the moon of the planet Earth around August 27, 2012. -oooBIBLICAL WARNINGS COMING TRUE: As far as the severe and scorching heat is concerned, Deuteronomy 28:15, 22-23 of the

Bible warned all of us that it is coming. The important parts of these passages say: “However, if you do not obey the Lord your God and do not carefully follow all his commands and decrees I am giving you today, all these curses will come on you and overtake you… “The Lord will strike you… with scorching heat and drought… which will plague you until you perish. The sky over your head will be bronze, the ground beneath you iron. The Lord will turn the rain of your country into dust and powder; it will come down from the skies until you are destroyed…” With respect to the phenomenon of a Mars as big as our moon, Luke 21:25 says: “There will be signs MOON/PAGE 9

The Glory of God THE Bible says that Moses’ face was so bright that he took a veil and put it over his face while he was speaking with the people (Exodus 34:33). Whenever he went back again into the presence of the Lord, he took the veil off; but as long as he was speaking with the people, he kept the veil on. Moses loved the children of Israel in spite of what they had done, and so he went back up the mountain to ask God to give them another chance. And in mercy and grace, God did forgive them. He also wrote the Ten Commandments again on new tablets of stone. Moses stayed there on the mountain for another 40 days and 40 nights. When Moses came down from Mount Sinai, his face was all aglow from having been alone with God. Notice the words found in Exodus 34:29, “And it came to pass, when Moses came down

The New Generation Alex A. Podador from Mount Sinai with the two tables of testimony in (his) hand … (he) knew not that the skin on his face shone while he talked with him.” The last sentence of verse 29 says, “Moses did not know that the skin of his face shone because he had been talking with God.” Why did Moses’ face shine? The answer: Because he had been with the Lord God. If you look at Exodus 33:18, you will find that Moses had made a special request of God. “And (Moses) said, I beseech thee, show me thy glory.” In other words, Moses

wanted to see the Lord in all His brightness and splendor and glory. And God granted his request, although He would not allow Moses to look on His face. Bible readers know the story. God hid Moses in the cleft of the rock, and He covered Moses with His hand while He passed by. Then God took away His hand, and Moses was permitted to see the backside of God. But even though Moses did not see God’s face, just being in His presence made Moses’ face glow! The unusual thing is that when Moses came down off

the mountain and began talking with the people, he didn’t realize that his face was radiant. He knew he had been with the Lord, but others knew he had been with the Lord too! That says these things: 1) Like Moses, we must catch a vision of God’s glory. Moses prayed about that and so must we. Most likely God is not going to reveal himself to us in His brightness and splendor unless we are open to it–unless we are praying about it. 2) We don’t need to try to look holy. We don’t need to try to act religious. If we have been with the Lord, and have caught a vision of His glory, that will be obvious to others. That will be obvious in our facial expression. That will be obvious in our attitudes. That will be obvious in our conversation. That will be obvious in our manner of living.

Build alliances to protect Oro from another Sendong-like disaster By BONG D. FABE Contributing editor

CAGAYAN de Oro City–– An expert on alliance-building urged everyone, especially leaders and members of the Cagayan de Oro River Basin Management Council (CDORBMC) to build alliances with all stakeholders to effectively protect the city from another Sendong-like disaster in the future. And one way of doing this is through “frequent dialogues”, said Silverio L. Tandog, program director of the Allah Valley Landscape Development Alliance (AVLDA) of South Cotabato and Sultan Kudarat provinces. This, as Archbishop Antonio J. Ledesma of the Archdiocese of Cagayan de Oro; Marivel C. Sacendoncillo, executive director of the Local Government Academy of the Department of Interior and Local Government (LGA-DILG); and Senator Loren Legarda, chair of the Senate Committee on Climate Change repeatedly pointed out that being proactive is the best defense against climate change-induced disasters spawned by natural phenomenon such as typhoons and tropical storms. “We are all in one boat so we have to help one another,” stressed Ledesma, co-chair and founding force of the CDORBMC. Ledesma, a staunch environmentalist who had initiated various forums and dialogues on the environment and ecology, had repeatedly sounded the call to “protect from further degradation the watershed

of society in the area. AVLDA is a multi-stakeholder group comprising of representatives from the Province of South Cotabato (Municipalities of Lake Sebu, T’boli, Surallah, Sto. Nino, Banga, and Norala) and the Province of Sultan Kudarat (City of Tacurong, and the Municipalities of Isulan, Esperanza, Lambayong and Bagumbayan). But building alliances is just the beginning, said

areas of the rivers that drain through the city,” particularly the Cagayan de Oro River, whose river basin covers an area of more than 150,000 hectares that extend to the northwestern area of Bukidnon and a portion of Lanao del Sur. Disasters do not respect political colors, stressed Sacendoncillo as she urged all local chief executives (LCEs) to hop on the bandwagon and do their fair share in “building climate adaptive and disaster resilient communities,” the theme of Thursday’s Regional Forum on Climate Change Adaptation and Disaster Risk Reduction: A Collaboration Workshop for Cagayan de Oro River Basin” at the Mallberry Suites Business Hotel. To drive home her point, Sacendoncillo told the short

story about Everybody, Somebody, Anybody and Nobody which ended up with “Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did what Anybody could have done.” “In an alliance, this will not work. Because everybody is accountable. May kanya-kanya tayong papel na ginagampanan. Hindi tayo pwedeng magturuan,” she said. In alliance-building, it is important to bring aboard all LCEs involved because “they are the ones who have the power to implement projects and programs involving a natural resource such as a river,” pointed out Tandog in an interview. Tandog quoted Section 33 of the Local Government Code of 1991 which states that “local government units may, through appropriate

ordinances, group themselves, consolidate or coordinate their efforts, services and resources for purposes commonly beneficial to them” as one legal basis for getting LCEs’ involvement in the CDORBMC. He acknowledged, however, that getting the involvement of LCEs is easier said than done. “LCEs have different priorities but we were able to solve the problem and get them on board (the AVLDA) through frequent dialoguing with them.” AVLDA was created as a response to floodings of the Allah Valley in South Cotabato and Sultan Kudarat provinces, especially the floodings in 1996 and 2002 as well as increasing concern over siltation, erosion, and decreasing water supply affecting all sectors

MinDA launches environment web portal THE public now has easy access to information and databases relating to Mindanao ecology with the launch of the MindaNOW Portal, a key output of Mindanao Development Authority’s (MinDA) flagship program, MindaNOW Nurturing our Waters. The portal currently features a database of laws and policies, geo-hazard maps, river basin profiles and masterplans, and presentations from the recently conducted Mindanao Economy and Environment Summit. It serves as a one-stop shop information center on environmental mechanisms, studies, plans, programs and projects from partners and champions of the MindaNOW program. “Our aim is for the MindaNOW portal to be the major information source for watershed and river basin planning, and this can only be achieved with the contributions of our experts, partners, and other stakeholders and the public,” said Luwalhati Antonino, MinDA Chairperson. The MindaNOW Portal also boasts of a MindaNOW

Sacendoncillo. “A well-conceived and well-executed strategic alliances must have a clear set of roles and responsibilities; a shared understanding of expectations around deliverables; and complementary expertise, resources, contacts, and cultures. But most importantly, effective alliances have to be about advancing the mission, vision, goals and objectives of the alliance,” she stressed.

Zubiri opens traders gab in Misoc By PJ TREMEDAL Correspondent

OROQUIETA City––Former Senator Juan Miguel “Migz” Zubiri graced and opened the 8th Zamboanga Peninsula Business Conference (ZAMPENBIZCON) here. Zubiri also led the ceremonial cutting of ribbon of the trade exhibits with Mr. Eric Avila of the Oroquieta City Chamber and Mrs. Elvie Tan of Ozamiz City Chamber. In his keynote speech, the former lawmaker is optimistic that Mindanao will be able to carry out its journey toward developmnt with the passage of Republic Act 9996 or the Mindanao Development Authority Act. In terms of “planning” and “development,” he said

that Mindanao had been neglected thus he thought of creating a law that would address such dilemma. “Past and Present, we are only asking for equal

opportunities similar to what other regions in the country are receiving. We are only asking for equitable share of government programs and a project to

spur economic development for Mindanao,” Zubiri told the participants of the trade exhibit adding, “Mindanao is contributing 40 percent of the nation’s gross domestic product (GDP) and close to 50 percent of the country’s food needs.” With the approval of RA 9996, the Mindanao Development Authority (MINDA) was created. Zubiri said MINDA is envisioned to collate and synthesized the development aspirations of all local government units and different stakeholders in Mindanao. Zubiri also tackled the importance of caring and preserving the environment for it is a major factor that will always affect business and the economy of the island.

Muslims start 30-day ‘Ramadhan’ today COTABATO City––Muslim Filipinos here and throughout the country will start the fasting month Friday if the moon is sighted Thursday night. Commissioner Esmael Ibrahim of the National Commission on Muslim Filipinos said Muslim religious leaders, led by the Darul Ifta (House of Opinions) will observe the moon

at about 6:30 p.m. Thursday all over the country. “If the moon appears tonight, Ramadhan or the fasting month officially starts Friday,” he said. If not, then the fasting officially begin on Saturday, July 21. Ibrahim, an Ustadz and chair of the Ulama Council of the Philippines, said fasting during the Ramadhan

Indonesia initiate moves to restore trust among Asean MALACANANG welcomes the visit of Indonesian Foreign Minister in Manila on Wednesday seeking a resolution to disagreements among claimants of disputed territory in the West Philippine Sea. Indonesian Foreign Minister Marty Natalegawa met with Foreign Affairs Secretary Albert del Rosario on Wednesday in an emergency visit to resolve the rift involving the West Philippine Sea claimants by drafting a new pact aimed at avoiding future clashes in the volatile region. Natalegawa will also fly to other Southeast Asian nations to try to ease the discord and prevent further damage to the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) after the regional bloc failed to come up with a joint statement following a meeting in Cambodia. “We certainly welcome the efforts of the Indonesian Foreign Minister. It is important that ASEAN as a regional bloc be maintained and that the centrality be preserved. And the way that Indonesia--- what the Indonesian Foreign Minister is doing is something that we welcome,” Presidential Spokesman Edwin Lacierda said Thursday. Lacierda said the failure of ASEAN to issue a joint communiqué is something that the ASEAN ministers are concerned with. The absence of a post-conference statement underscored the divisions within the regional group over the handling of the West Philippine Sea issue. Among the ASEAN member countries claiming parts of the disputed territory include Brunei, Malaysia, Vietnam, and the Philippines. China and Taiwan also have been contesting ownership of potentially oil-and gas-rich territories. New tensions have risen recently after the Philippines and Vietnam accused China of aggressive behavior in pursuing its claims.

is one of the “five pillars” of the Islamic faith. The other pillars are the unconditional belief in Allah, giving of zakat (alms) to the poor, praying five times a day facing the direction of Mecca in Saudi Arabia, and, for the financially capable, joining the pilgrimage or hajj to the holy land of Mecca. “If you are capable, at

least once in your lifetime you must join the hajj,” he said. Ismael said fasting was prescribed by Prophet Mohammad to his followers as a means of inculcating in them the need for self-restraint to achieve harmony with all peoples regardless of faith and race. He also appealed to fellow Muslims to refrain

from firing their guns to welcome the fasting month of Ramadhan, saying it would be best to share their blessings to the poor instead of buying bullets for firing. In previous years, the incident of gun firing in welcoming the fasting month has dwindled due to repeated appeals by Muslim religious leaders.

“The best thing to do at the moment is to share your blessings even as you refrain from taking water or food from dawn to dusk in 30 days, including sexual activities,” Ibrahim said. On the first day of fasting month, Muslims from all over the world will gather in the centuries-old tradition of congregational prayer.

the overall title in 2000, and lost by just a single gold medal to the USA four years ago here in Cebu City. Despite the overwhelming delegation of 120 eskrimadors from the Philippines, Team USA is all geared up to defend its crown and is ecstatic with the opportunity to again compete in the land where the martial art originated. ”The USA is always very happy to come to the Philippines. We are eager to compete. We come to win and do our very best,” said former Wekaf champion Antonio Lucero of Team USA. Aside from the defending champions USA, Gerald also believes that there are other emerging teams that they should look out for in

the biennial tournament. ”We have to watch out for the Australians. A lot of the Australians have improved a lot. Reunion Island has 50 or more competitors and with a delegation this big, this means that they are ready,” he said. Wekaf chairman emeritus and Supreme Grandmaster Dionisio Canete also cited a few other countries that have talent but are unfortunate to have a small delegation for the competition. ”Hungary and New Zealand have a lot of good fighters but we will swarm them with our numbers,” he said. The tournament, which attracted 30 countries, will formally start on July 19 and will end on July 21.

11-man PHL Olympic team has slim medal chance: POC “DON’T expect any medal,” was all Philippine Olympic Committee (POC) chairperson Monico Puentevella could say as to the chances of the tiny national delegation in breaking the country’s 16year Olympic medal drought in the coming Games in London. “Sixteen years is, indeed, too long for us to win another Olympic medal, but like in our immediate past participation, I’m sorry to say that among the 11 athletes we are sending to London only a few who we can say we have a slim chance for one,” the former Bacolod City Congressman said. “But, miracles do happen, so let’s just hope and pray that one of the 11 athletes we are sending can be blessed to at least bring home a medal of any color,” Puentevella, who is also the president of the Philippine Weightlifting Association, said during Friday’ s SCOOP Sa Kamayan weekly session at the Kamayan Restaurant in Padre Faura, Manila.

“All the athletes we are fielding earned their respective place in the team and have prepared enough, in the hope of bringing home honors for the country,” Puentevella told his audience in the forum, sponsored by Powerade, AKTV and FILA. “Let me just say that this contingent, one of the smallest in our country’s Olympic participation, will be out there fighting, if not to win medal, but to win goodwill for the county,”: he vowed. Puentevella cited FilAm BMX mountain rider Daniel Caluag as to have the brightest hope of landing in the medal standing in view of his ranking in the world while representing the United States in several world championships he has so far participated in. “Dadaan tayo sa karayom, but I’m sure our ‘Magnificent 11’ will do everything they can to project to the whole world what kind of people the Filipinos are,” he added.

in the sun, moon and stars…” In Mark 13:24-25: “But in those days, following that distress, the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from the sky, and the heavenly bodies will be shaken…” -oooTIME TO PAUSE AND BE CONCERNED: I am sure that no one can successfully argue that the foregoing events are mere natural phenomena and are expected occurrences in the history of mankind. No, they are not natural occurrences. They are extraordinary happenings, made more amazing by the fact that they were foretold to happen---accurately so, it would appear now. When taken in relation to the other signs mentioned by Jesus Christ, our God and Savior, in Matthew 24--like earthquakes, famines, wars, fights by kingdoms against kingdoms and nations against nations--and in Luke 21 and Mark 13---like water from the seas tossing and roaring their way to lands as tidal waves or tsunamis---it is time to pause and really be concerned, repent, and go back to God. Surely, the fact that these signs of the end of the world are happening exactly as the Bible predicted them indicates the accuracy and truthfulness of what is contained in its pages, particularly the warnings of Jesus about His Second Coming, and how the world will end. We must seriously consider the warning of Jesus, in Mark 13:31: “Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away…” -oooREACTIONS?

to help the students graduate, but also to build for themselves a good foundation which they can use to help other students from their tribe. “It is NGCP’s contribution to the legacy of quality education for the entire tribe,” said NGCP President and CEO Henry T. Sy, Jr. “We are proud to say that the scholars for the past year had a satisfactory performance in their academics which gave NGCP more reasons to continue supporting the students,” he added. The scholarship includes provision of tuition fees, book and uniform allowance, and a monthly stipend. NGCP is spending at least Sixty Thousand Pesos (Php60,000) per year for each qualified student’s academic needs. Total scholarship grants for this school year amount to Five Hundred Twenty Six Thousand Pesos (Php526,000)

from page 8 Puentevella also mentioned skeet shooter Brian Rosario, archers Mark Javier and weightlifter Hidilyn Diaz as to have chances of figuring out in the fight for medals in their respective sports. “As for Hidilyn, who is ranked 6th in the world, well, we in the PWA are actually preparing her for the next Olympics in 2016,” he remarked. “She was an Olympian four years ago at age 16, now she’s only 22, so maybe four years from now she will be ready to really compete with the best in the world.” The POC chair noted that for Mark Anthony Barriga and Fil-Japanese judoka Tomohiko Hoshina will need luck in the draw to advance into the next rounds and, perhaps, into the medal plays. Long jumper Maristella Torres, distance runner Rene Herrera and swimmers Jasmine Alkhaldi and Jesse King Lacuna rounded out the PHL contingent. Joining Puentevella as guests in the weekly session were Manila councilor and Manila Little League Chapter president Che Borromeo, ILLAM Charter head Norman Macasaet and businessmansportsman Ping Remollo of the Muntinlupa-Alabang Little League Charter. Borromeo will head the Ana Santiago-coached Team Manila to the Big League World Series for girls softball in the 16-18 bracket scheduled Aug. 2-8 in Kalamazoo, Michigan , while Macasaet the ILLAM Major League (11-12) World Series for girls softball Aug. 9-15 in Portland, Oregon. Macasaet is spearheading the MUntinlupa-Alabang Big League boys baseball campaign in the division World Series July 25 to Aug. 1 in Easley, South Carolina. Coach is Randy Dizer.

Northern Mindanao pushes for federation of consumer groups CONSUMER groups in Northern Mindanao unanimously agreed on the creation of a regional federation of consumer organizations in Region 10, as a result of the discussions during the Regional Consumer Assembly held at the Cagayan de Oro City. The establishment of the regional federation, which is targeted in the third quarter of 2012, is expected to unify the voices of the different consumer organizations in the region. Other issues and concerns were raised by dif-

ferent stakeholders during the meeting such as public consciousness on consumer laws and fair trade laws, implementation of consumer laws, strong linkages among various sectors, government support to consumer groups, among others. Best practices, on the other hand were highlighted during the assembly, like the implementation of consumer welfare projects such as Bagsakan Center and Consumer Welfare Desk (CWD) in business establishments, proactive Local Price Coordinating Coun-

cils (LPCCs), and effective market administration. Recommendations were formulated after the discussions such as regular updating of price monitoring boards in markets especially for fish and meat products, strengthening of LPCCs to effectively perform their duties particularly during calamities, and procurement of testing and weighing devices to measure products sold in the market. Aside from the Northern Mindanao, other regional consumer assemblies were organized by DTI to gather

relevant stakeholders and come up with recommendations to strengthen consumer welfare and protection. Outputs from the Regional Consumer Assembly will be presented at the upcoming National Consumer Congress scheduled on October 1, 2012 to kick off the Consumer Welfare Month celebration. Representatives from consumer organizations, academe and partner agencies will join the congress to come up with a National Action Plan for the advancement of consumer welfare and protection.

DOH order on contraceptives mocks lawmakers, says lawyer WITH RH bill proponents facing imminent defeat in Congress, the Department of Health (DOH) has circumvented the legislative process with the sudden release of an administrative order laying out a nationwide strategy for the distribution of artificial contraceptives. This was bared by the lawyer heading the legal office of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP), who described DOH Administrative Order 2012-0009 as practically the implementing rules of the Reproductive Health (RH) Bill which has yet to pass Congress. “Its issuance at a time when Congress and the Senate are deliberating on RH bills mocks and disrespects the authority of a co-equal branch of government,” Atty. Jo Aurea Imbong stated in her preliminary critique of the DOH order.

‘Unmet need’ myth Moreover, the DOH is peddling the myth of “unmet need” to justify the surprise order, whose strategy of “subtle coercion and undue influence” could
