NPC on Mindanao Power Crisis:

HELP IS ON THE WAY By MIKE BAÑOS

First of two parts NPC Power Center, Diliman, Quezon City––Dreary as the prognosis for the short-term prospects for the power industry in Mindanao may see, residents could take cold comfort from the fact that there’s a pretty good chance things are going to get better and not any worse as the expected dry spell continues. During a conference last Friday, March 23 held here, the National Power Corporation Mindanao Generation (NPC-MINGEN) presented an improving picture of the short term power outlook to an audience called together by the Department of Energy which included the Association of Mindanao Rural Electric Cooperatives (AMRECO), National Grid Corporation of the Philippines and independent power producer Therma

Marine, Inc. (TMI). National Power Corporation Vice President Engr. Rudy P. Brioso, plant manager of the Pulangi IV hydroelectric plant in Bukidnon said they have received some P7-10 million for the selective dredging and flushing of the power plant next month. The month-long shutdown is expected to cost the plant an additional P5-million daily in lost sales. help/PAGE 7

Last of a series LENNIE is a little embarrassed to show their tent-home because, as she said, she had not tidied up. “It’s a little hard to keep everything clean and orderly with two small children always getting into everything,” she said. Inside the tent, clothes clean and dirty were strewn everywhere along with empty plastic bottles and containers which Lennie explained to be the children’s playthings. It was clear that they did not have too many belongings. The small televison they used to own was lost in the flood. “We didn’t get to save anything but clothes when the water started rising. We all just ran out of the house and kept moving until we got to an

evacuation center,” she said. Lennie shared that while daytime is hot and humid in the tent city, the nights could get very cold. Lennie makes her two children wear sweaters at night, but they still catch colds. The baby boy, in particular, keeps coughing in the afternoons. Lennie is worried that he might have tuberculosis. “The settlement administration and the relief group gives us vitamins and vitamin drops for the children, but I would much rather take my children to the doctor,” she said. While clean drinking water is not a problem in the tent site as the relief agency supplies 4,000 liters twice a week, there are other factors iligan/PAGE 7

House Approved Bill Protecting Consumers. Rep. Rufus Rodriguez, 2nd District, Cagayan de Oro City, speaks before the Committee on Trade and Industry as he lays down the benefits provided for by House Bill 4801 (An Act Amending Certain Provisions Of Republic Act No. 7581 or the Consumer Protection Act) which he co-authored. The House Bill seeks to add to the list of basic commodities bottled water, fruits, noodles, LPG, among others which would ensure that the prices of these added products would not increase during times of emergencies and calamities unlike what happened during typhoon Sendong. The bill was approved on third reading and was transmitted to the Senate. Also in the picture is Committee Chairman Rep. Albert Raymond S. Garcia of the 2nd District of Bataan.

Presidential Spokesperson Edwin Lacierda said that the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) is strictly monitoring the prices of basic commodities to prevent unnecessary movement in prices of basic commodities. “Basically, we have weekly surveys on the market prices,” said Lacierda add-

R-12’s 10 colleges to raise school fees GENERAL Santos City–– Ten of the 26 colleges and universities in Region 12 or the Soccsksargen Region have set another round of increases in tuition and other related fees starting June, an official of the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) said. Dr. Eloisa Paderanga, CHED Region 12 director, said they were formally informed of the new fee increases based on documents submitted to their office by the concerned colleges and universities. Region 12 covers the provinces of South Cotabato, Sultan Kudarat, Sarangani, North Cotabato and the cities of General Santos, Koronadal, Tacurong, Kidapawan and Cotabato. “We’re currently reviewing the submitted documents based on the guidelines set by the Commission,” Paderanga said. But she pointed out that CHED was not mandated to approve or disapprove the proposed fee increases that were submitted to their office. She said they were only tasked to receive and review the documents submitted by the colleges and universities to ensure that they complied with the requirements, among them the mandatory consultation, involving the new fee increases. “We don’t approve, we just acknowledge them because the (increase in) tuition fees are decided by the owners or the school themselves,” Paderanga said in an interview with a local television station.

She did not cite any figure as to the proposed tuition fee increases set by the 10 colleges and universities but she said they were coordinating with them to ensure that the hike would be at the reasonable level. “If we find the increases as too high, we immediately ask their officials to reconsider and lower the rates to just around 10 percent,” Paderanga said. Last year, 20 colleges and universities in the region had raised their tuition fees by four to 10 p ercent to supp osedly cover for the increase in the salaries of their personnel and finance the necessary improvements of their facilities. In January, the CHED central office issued a memorandum detailing the “Enhanced Policies, Guidelines and Procedures Governing Increases in Tuition and Other School Fees, Introduction of New Fees, and for Other Purposes.” The memo specifically laid out the consultation process and the requirements to be met by schools that intend to raise their tuition fees. It cited that 70 percent of the increase in tuition “should be allotted for the teaching and non-teaching personnel not necessarily an increase in personnel compensation.” It set the creation of in every region of a Regional Multi-Sectoral Committee on Tuition Fee and Other Schools Fees (RMSCTOSF) to monitor the compliance of schools, colleges, and universities.

John Perrine, said that contrary to the perception that Mindanao was not a safe place to conduct business, the region had actually produced some of the best yields on the company’s investments.

“Our most successful investments have been in the (Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao).

By PAT SAMONTE, Regional Editor-Caraga

BUTUAN City––Aside from the backing of the Liberal Party, Vice-Mayor Lawrence Lemuel Fortun is relying on massive support from the urban and rural poor, youth and women’s groups in his bid to represent Agusan del Norte’s 1st congressional district in next year’s election. Fortun said he was using as parameter the results of the 2010 vice-mayoral contest to measure his chances. Because of the people’s “overwhelming support,” Fortun walked a mile away with more than 26,000 votemargin over then incumbent vice-mayor Dino Sanchez. Fortun faces Councilor Ryan Anthony Culima, spokesperson of SR Metals Mining Corporation in

FORTUN Tubay, Agusan del Norte, for the Liberal Party’s blessings. A long -time figure in city politics being an alderman for several terms, Culima took a shot at the city’s number two post in 2007 but lost to Sanchez by

3,000 votes. He became LP member in 2010. While he chairs the local LP committee chairman, Fortun said he would let the party decide on its official candidate for representative of Agusan del Norte’s 1st district covering Butuan City and Las Nieves, Agusan del Norte. Fortun said he has been a member of the Liberal Party since his college days in 1991. He was a national officer of the Kabataang Liberal ng Pilipinas (Kalipi). As a law student in Manila, Fortun worked at the offices of several congressmen including Speaker Protempore Raul Daza, Mar Roxas and Deputy Majority Leader Dante Bueser of Laguna.

Agree with your critics THINK a minute. Do you usually agree with people when they criticize you? Probably not. But just for fun, try it sometime. Agree with the criticism that people might give you. At first, it won’t feel natural or fun because when people criticize us, our natural reaction is just the opposite. We feel hurt like we’re being attacked. So as our blood pressure shoots up, we fire back our own criticism of that person like a counter-attack. But think of all the time and energy we waste reacting with anger to criticism. A famous, successful person says: “I’ve learned to take criticism seriously, but not personally.”

Think A Minute Jhan Tiafau Hurst You see, friend, it just might be true—at least part of it. I don’t know about you, but I’ve got lots of room for improvement. So let’s take all the help we can get, even if it hurts a little, because the truth hurts sometimes. And if part of that criticism of us is simply not true or fair, then just take the part that is true and do something about it.

Let it change you and make you a better person. Make it work for you to your advantage. As they say, “Spit out the bones and keep the meat.” It will make you stronger in your character. So we need just to chew on that criticism of us and think about it for awhile. God created us to have the character of Jesus Christ. One of the main reasons

He became a human being was to show us the kind of nature and person He designed us to be. And all it takes is one look at Jesus to know we’ve got a long way to go to become that kind of person! So let’s learn all we can and take all the help we can get—even from our critics. The truth may hurt, but it also can set us free from our wrong attitudes, motives, and behavior. That’s the only way we can start becoming all we were made to be. Why not ask Jesus Christ to forgive for your wrong way of living? Then ask Him to help you start making the changes you need to make in your character and life. Just Think a Minute.

natural cinematography. These theme parks could add revenue to the local government. The park’s operation and maintenance could provide employment to victims of typhoon Sendong. These victim-survivors should serve as ‘guides’ who could present to visitors factual narrative of the disaster. In other words, idle places declared ‘non-habitable’ could become profitable. The city could also utilize some of these areas as ‘demonstration farms’ where cultivation of varied agricultural products could be shown to tourists. The city’s agriculture department will have their hands full. ‘Isla de Oro’ fits the agriculture description of a theme park while an Olympic size pool where children and adult take swimming lessons is ideal in ‘Cala-cala.’ There is also a need have flood-watch towers in CalaCala and Balulang. These towers should be colossal and imposing in order to attract visitors. These towers are guarded 24/7. The city could initiate lots of revenue generating schemes in these ‘non-habitable’ places. For instance, the flood-watch towers could also serve as starting points for zip-lines. A two-way cable could serve from Calacala passing along Cagayan de Oro riverbanks toward ‘Isla de Oro’ or further. The cable cars transport in an imaginary channel tracing the flood’s direction. These are some ideas that would turn the city’s ‘nonhabitable’ places attractive to investors and visitors. These ideas will transform these unused places into areas of unforgettable experience. Places where Cagayanons could be proud of, once more. react: crisguardian@yahoo.com

The mystery of listening skill

THE previous topic of my article was the miracle of reading skill. Now, I argue that “listening” is the most crucial language skill. This is obviously true because when we don’t have listening skill we cannot communicate with others normally. Imagine when there are two babies born in the world at the same time, on the same day, and in the same year. When one of the two babies is deaf, and the other is not, we can bet that the latter will live normally like us today, able to speak or communicate with others using a language. When there is a baby born and deaf, this baby will be inevitably totally mute when grown up. This is because the deaf baby will never listen to any sound--language sound.

DR. DJUWARI STIE Perbanas (College of Economics and Business) Surabaya, Indonesia Based on such an illustration, we can guess that the deaf baby will be mute because during the life, this baby never hears anything. Therefore, listening skill is the key success to grab the second language skill— speaking skill. Listening cannot be neglected by any parents or primary school

teachers. Without a good listening skill, the children will also find handicap in acquiring their speaking skill. Listening skill can even be acquired before a baby is born. While a mother is expecting a baby, she usually puts electronic equipment producing some sound of music on her stomach, for example, from the radio or tape recorder. Generally, she is asked why to do so is that it is intended to give the baby a stimulus to listen to the sound or music. By doing so, the baby is expected to get training in listening. Usually, the sound or music is the type of sound which is much nicer when heard by the baby. So, this stimulus can make the baby stimulated to listen to the sound. Listening in

this case is very important. This must not be stopped until this stage. After the baby is born, the baby should also be continuously exposed to any sound, especially language voice. The language voice which is heard very often by the baby is also the most important input of language acquisition. More often, the language voice is the mother tongue. That’s why the first language is called mother tongue. It is the language which is the most frequently spoken by a mother. The language spoken by a mother is the first input of the baby’s language acquisition. When, a mother is very-very busy and spends very little time with the baby during, for example five skill/p.7

Women are like apples on trees. The best ones are at the top of the tree. Many men don't want to reach for the good ones because they are afraid of falling and getting hurt. Instead, they just get the rotten apples from the ground. They are not as good, but they were easy to get without putting out much effort. So the apples at the top think something is wrong with them, when in reality, they are amazing. They just have to wait for the right man to come along the one who is brave enough to climb all the way to the top of the tree. Men, on the other hand, are like fine wine. They start out as grapes. It is up to women to stomp the crap out of them until they turn into something acceptable to have dinner with.

Balingao town to showcase local products during Misoc festival BALIANGAO, Misamis Occidental––Smoked Boneless Bangus and Bottled Bangus Sardines are now the topmost priority livelihood products sold to every guests visiting this sea-shell capital of Misamis Occidental. This was learned from Mr. Remil Alum, Baliangao’s Municipal Tourism Officer, during the recently held

Provincial Tourism Council meeting held at Rhovics for the preparation of the 3rd Pasungko Sig MisOcc Festival and Agro-Trade Fair event upcoming November 2012. Mr. Alum told Mindanao Daily that because of the recently acquired support and help from the Bureau of Fisheries and

family’s income. In other development, as the Sea Shell Capital of Misamis Occidental, Mayor Jalosjos said that not only by promoting its sea natural resources as food and other delicacies but improved and develop its tourism potential and destinations. “Yes it is my utmost priority to develop the tourism industry and potentials of Baliangao, and because

of SGG Boxing Promotions who happened to be a Baliangaonon himself, Mr. Sergio Gello-ami has now transferred his stadium in Baliangao my administration will also promote and support sport tourism,” Mayor Jalosjos confirmed. It may be recalled that Filipino boxer Johnreil Casimiro, who was beaten up by Argentinians during his IBF title fight against Luiz

Lazarte of Argentina practice at SGG Boxing Stadium in Baliangao a week before the controversial fight, won the fight––and that Lazarte was banned. With this development, Mayor Jalosjos decided to promote boxing sports for her constituents to love boxing and eventually offers scholarship program for the youth of Baliangao to learn the sports.

CEBU City––AJ “Bazooka” Banal said he is ready for a world title fight after his abbreviated fight with Mexican Raul Hidalgo Saturday night in the main event of Pinoy Pride 13-Road to Glory at the Waterfront Hotel and Casino in Cebu City. “I’m ready for a world title fight. I’m ready for anyone they place in front of me,” Banal said. Banal (27-1-1, 20 KOs) unloaded a devastating left hook to the head that knocked the senses out of Hidalgo (16-6, 12 KOs). After receiving the vicious blow, the 23-year-old Mexican continued to punch but his legs wobbled awkwardly and his head was facing down.

To save Hidalgo, referee Danrex Tapdasan quickly intervened and waived the fight off in 2:29 of the first round. The referee’s decision had mixed reactions from the crowd, and some thought it came too early. However, Tapdasan firmly stood his ground that he did the right call. “The fight shouldn’t continue because his legs were wobbling and shaking. I’m not a doctor but he was in first before entertainment,” debilitating haymaker, felt a convulsion and it’s a dan- Tapdasan said. that the referee stepped in gerous situation. He wasn’t Hidalgo, who was for a too soon. himself and he was punch- moment disoriented by the “The referee should have ing me and the punches were really weak. One more strong punch and it could lead to a coma. The safety star wars characters of the boxer should come

counted. I’m mad because it was stopped. Banal doesn’t hit hard,” said the young Mexican prospect. ALA Promotions president Michael Aldeguer felt that the stoppage was the discretion of the referee. “I don’t know if it was the right call. He (Hidalgo) looked a bit weird. It’s a judgment call,” he said. Aldeguer said that it’s likely that Banal will be challenging for the World Boxing Organization bantamweight crown this year. But Banal’s title fight depends on the decision of cur-

rent titleholder Jorge Arce. If Arce, who is slated to see action in the undercard of the Manny Pacquiao vs. Timothy Bradley fight, decides to move up a different weight division and leave the bantamweight title vacant, then No. 1-rated Banal and No. 2-ranked Thai Pungluang Sor Singyu will face off for the belt. But if Arce decides to stay in the division and keep his belt, then Banal is taking on another opponent before trading leathers with the Mexican world champion. (PNA)

that need to be addressed to ensure that the refugees do not fall ill, especially the children. The back area of the campsite was cleared and toilet stalls were built, numbering nine to 12 in all. Most of the toilets, upon inspection, were foul and dirty. The refugees explained that they couldn’t clean the toilets regularly as they should because the water supply was too far from the toilet area. The stalls for bathing were put up in the front area of the camp site where the water pump is, and where the relief group’s water delivery truck releases its contents through a hose and into a gigantic water bag that functions as the camp’s water storage facility. During a lecture on hygiene given by relief volunteers Lennie promised to pay more attention to keeping clean habits inside the tent and outside. Her immediate neighbors also do the same. “I know it’s important to keep clean because it’s what will help keep us healthy and less susceptible to sickness,” she said. The long road to recovery for Iligan It is clear that three months after Sendong, much still needs to be done to ensure the complete recovery of the affected families. Even as everything appears to have returned to normal for the rest of the city and province — business establishments have opened, the local government offices and police and security agencies have returned to their normal operations — the residents affected by Sendong still have a long way to go before they can pick up what remains of their lives before the typhoon struck. Many of the affected families are unemployed, and those who do have work do not earn enough. Their meager wages as day laborers, household help, and utility workers are already far from being enough to cover their family’s basic needs. The challenges they continue to face in the aftermath of Sendong are still considerable as they have to contend with either major house repairs or to completely find new shelters. Either way, they need financial aid. In the meantime, to restore their sense of dignity, the affected families also need to be provided with means of livelihood and subsistence. Many were employed before the Sendong struck, but lost their jobs afterwards. Others chose to stop working so they can focus on rebuilding their houses, and even with the aid of humanitarian groups, the process is fraught with difficulty. The affected residents of Iligan need all the help they can get if they are to get their lives to return to normal again. (http://bulatlat.com)

to 50MW starting middle of May when the repair and maintenance works is completed. The plant’s 2,000 hectare reservoir holds 67 million cubic meters of water of which 34% (23 million cu.m.) are silted. Based on the average annual sediment deposit volume of 1,500,000 cu.m. this represents 15 years accumulation of silt exacerbated by the continued conversion of forests in Bukidnon to pineapple and sugar plantations. Hineleban Foundation, an NGO involved with the reforestation of the Mount Kitanglad watershed, estimates one hectare of these converted farmlands shed an average of 40 metric tons of silt into the rivers of the province, citing a recently converted 2,000 hectare pineapple plantation which dumps some 80,000 MT of silt into the province’s rivers annually. A DOE statement dated March 22, 2012 stressed the dredging would not solve the problem “because it will just give more space for silt to accumulate.” It further cited “the plant’s capacity would not be stable since it is a run-of-river design dependent on the amount of rainfall and flow of water” to generate power. However, Mr. Brioso said this constraint should be addressed over the medium and long term once the P3billion already released by the government to reforest denuded areas of the surrounding watershed is implemented.

years, the baby’s language skill, especially speaking skill will contain vocabularies spoken very often by other close relatives. When, a baby sitter or a servant is employed in the family, we can predict that the baby’s language in five years will be the “photocopy” of the baby sitter or servant’s language. The more crucial thing is that when less input of vocabularies spoken by the baby sitter or a servant, the less language skill the baby will acquire during five year-period. In the long run, the baby’s language skill can be hindered, especially the second language skill of speaking. Listening is obviously the most crucial language skill for all human beings in the world. When all babies are born without having maximum acquisition of listening skill, they can be lack of vocabularies. In turn, they find handicap in communication, especially when starting the primary schools. From understanding the importance of listening skill for human beings, we have to be very careful with our babies or children when their first language is not fully and normally acquired. Therefore, the way how to improve the children language skill can be started from a baby, even when the baby is still in the mother’s womb. Listening is the most important language skill for human beings. My previous article about reading was ended by the statement “We are what we read”. My article today can be ended by the statement “We are what we have heard very often” This means that the manner of language spoken by anybody expresses what he or she has heard through his or her ears. Even, the language can also provide us information about who someone is, where someone is from, and even how someone has lived in his or her community: the manner. Listening is a good activity for our babies or children. Editor’s Note: Dr. Djuwari is the director of language laboratory and has been teaching Listening subject to his students since 1998 at STIE Perbanas Surabaya.
