(Photo by Ahl-franzie Salinas) Continued fr om page 1 from Father Romeo S. Saniel, NDJC President and concurrent President of PRISAA in the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao, thanked Governor Toto Tan for his “all-out” support to the sports competition. He said the event was “about a multitude of things, among them is promoting friendship and camaraderie among athletes.” “The hospitality of the Tausugs and positive attributes of Sulu is also being showcased in this event,” he said and urged

athletes to relate their experience in Sulu to their respective provinces. Tan, a sportsman himself, expressed optimism that local athletes will eventually excel and be recognized at the national level. “Athletes from Sulu only need the opportunity to be given proper training to excel,” he said. He said he is also looking into the possibility of developing athletes in a particular sport discipline where the Tausugs have a potential to excel. “I will support

the Sulu athletes’ expenses in the next holding of the PRISAA regional and national games,” Tan said. Tan added: “On my part as Chief Executive, I support the youth and their healthy activities like sports, as a more viable option than the social menace like drugs and for them to be guarded against the influence and lure of criminal elements. In addition, by playing host to events like the one we are having today, we are sending a strong message

ARMM sends relief aid to Surigao earthquake victims COTABATO CITY – The Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) through its Humanitarian and Emergency Action Response Team (ARMM-HEART) has sent relief assistance to earthquake victims in Surigao City. An ARMM HEART team departed from the region’s seat here last week, according to Executive Secretary Laisa Alamia who said the relief assistance includes 200 sacks of rice, 50 boxes of instant coffee, 100 boxes of sardines, and 100 bottles of five-liter distilled water. The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) said Surigao City was hit by magnitude 6.7 earthquake at 10 p.m. on February 10, causing deaths, injuries

and damage to properties. Based on the agency’s report, the epicenter of the earthquake was 16 kilometers northwest of Surigao City and was of tectonic of origin. As of latest data, the temblor’s death toll has risen to eight, and the number of injured is now at 2,019. The National Disaster Risk Reduction Management Council pegged damaged properties to more than P108 million. On February 11, the government of Surigao City has declared a state of calamity. “The people of Surigao need assistance, and we should provide whatever we can,” Atty. Alamia said. Based on a report from the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD), at least 300

houses in Surigao del Norte, where the city is located, were damaged by the temblor. In November 2013, ARMM HEART also extended relief and medical assistance to the victims of Typhoon Haiyan in Tacloban City, Leyte. ARMM-HEART is a convergence of agencies that oversees disaster preparedness and response in the region. The team includes Phivolcs; DSWD; Department of Science and Technology; Department of the Interior and Local Government; Office of Civil Defense; Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration; and the Regional Planning and Development Office, among others.

Security tight in Zamboanga highway after ambush Authorities have tightened security in Zamboanga City following a recent ambush on a provincial bus that injured 8 people. Police said it was investigating the attack. Investigators said the bus, owned by Rural Transit of Mindanao, was heading to Pagadian City in Zamboanga del Sur province when it came under fire. It was carrying 34 passengers. The driver, Celedonio Sugabo, nearly missed thevolley of gunfire directed at him, but bullets hit the passengers seated behind. The attackers continued firing their automatic

weapons as the driver struggled to bring the bus away from the line of fire until it reached a marine checkpoint in Muti village about one kilometer from Buenavista village where the ambush occurred. Initial police report said at least 5 people were involved in the latest attack. The wounded passengers were rushed to hospital in Zamboanga City. Police released the names of the victims as Noel Lopez, 45; John Baynosa, 36; Jaman Alam, 53; Ednalia Gilla, 20; Raniel Abeng, 22; Christopher Cagan, 27; George Elnas, 35; and Genevie Lopez, 35. City police chief

Luisito Magnaye said they were investigating the strafing. “We are still investigating this incident whether it was in retaliation to our law enforcement operations against lawless group or other motives,” he said. No individual or claimed responsibility for the strafing, but 90 percent of the highway – linking Zamboanga City to nearby provinces – has no street lights and security remains a big problem for travellers and motorists because of threats of attacks from rebels and armed robberies blamed by authorities to bandit groups.

ARMM earmarks P199 million for Basilan road projects BASILAN – The Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) has earmarked some P199 million for the concreting of roads in Basilan as part of its peace-building priorities in the province, just several nautical miles south of Zamboanga, Gov. Mujiv Hataman said. Gov. Hataman led the signing of the agreement for the implementation of the Basilan Transcentral Road Phase II projects and he noted how important infrastructure is for peace, stability and economic development in the region. The other signatories were Brig. Gen. Arnold Fernandez, commander of the 54th Engineering Brigade; Public Works-ARMM Secretary Don Mustapha Loong; Lt. Col. Arnel Fernandez, commander of the 54th Engineering Construction Battalion, and Basilan Governor Jim Hataman-Saliman. The road projects comprise the concreting of the 3.5-kilometer Sampinit-Masola Road in Isabela City with an allocated budget of P82

million, and the 5-kilomet e r Sampinit-Punoh-Mahadie Road in Sumisip town with an appropriation of P117 million. Sec. Loong said the roads are among the first projects being undertaken under Phase II of the Transcentral project. A total of P806.05 million was allocated for Phase II covering 34.3 kilometers. Meanwhile, the implementation of Phase I of the Transcentral project is currently on-going with a budget of P252 million covering 21 kilometers. The allocation was sourced from the 2016 regular infrastructure budget of the region. Sec. Loong said the Basilan Transcentral Road project is one of the key connectivity projects of Gov. Hataman and is expected to reduce travel time between Sumisip and Isabela City, and between Maluso and Lamitan City. The project connects different towns located at the center of the province to the Basilan Circumferential Road.

“This will allow better logistics and people interconnectivity in Basilan. It is hoped that upon completion of the Basilan Transcentral Road, there will be peace in Basilan, faster movement of people, cheaper transport costs, more agricultural areas developed and a more competitive Basilan ready for the Asean integration, Brunei-Indonesia-Malaysia-Philippines East Asean Growth Area and the Basilan Economic Zone,” Sec. Loong said. Residents of Basilan who experienced peace and order problems in the past are expecting full support from the Duterte administration in the near term as the ARMM government continues to pour in funds for high-impact projects in the province. Since 2012, ARMM allocated a total of P7.865 billion for infrastructure projects in the province. For this year, a total of P2.207 billion has been earmarked under the region’s infrastructure program. (Bureau of Public Information)

Sagupaan patuloy pa rin sa Mindanao Examiner. Mariing pinabulaanan naman ng NPA ang paratanang ni Balagtey at sinabing pakana lamang ito ng militar upang siraan ang rebeldeng grupo. Matatandaang ipinag-utos ng NPA ang isang temporary ceasefire sa lalawigan upang makapasok ang mga relief aids doon. Nagkaroon rin ng malaking sagupaan kamakailan lamang sa bayan ng Lupon sa Davao Oriental. Naganap ang labanan sa Barangay New Visayas, ayon kay Balagtey. Inakusahan ng militar ang NPA ng pagbihag sa isang kapilya, mga sibilyan kabilang ang bata at babae - at ginamit na "human shield" laban sa mga humahabol na tropa. Hinarang rin umano ng NPA ang isang highway sa Lupon kung kaya't hindi makadaan ang mga

biyahero at motorista. “We lament the NPAs conduct of road block disturbing the economic activity of the area and the use of children and women and a chapel as part of their diversionary act against pursuing troops,” ani Balagtey. “These condemnable acts are manifestation of the gross disregard of the NPAs of human rights, especially that of the children and the elderly.” Ang enkuwentro ay sa pagitan ng 28thInfantry Battalion at malaking grupo ng NPA. Nabawi sa lugar ang 14 na backpacks na naiwan ng mga rebelde. Sinabi naman ni Rigoberto Sanchez, isang spokesman ng rebeldeng grupo, na tagumpay ang NPA sa pagtatanggopl sa kanilang mga teritoryo sa kabila ng all-out war na idineklara ni Duterte.

“The all-out war and all its attendant human rights violations mock the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) and the Philippine National Police’s (PNP) grandstanding of advocating peace. The NPA in the region, meanwhile, having gone through the brunt of the monumental failure Oplan Bayanihan, is ready to defend the masses and the victories of the people’s war in the face of the Duterte government’s allout war under the current Oplan Kapayapaan,” sabi pa ni Sanchez. “This early, the all-out war against the NPA forcibly ordered by the hawkish generals of the AFP is taking its toll on their foot soldiers in southern Mindanao. Meantime, AFP and PNP troops in southern Mindanao have gone berserk in their fascist

attempts to supposedly hit hard the region’s NPA units, all the while victimizing civilians and activists in their wake,” dagdag pa nito. Bihag pa rin ng NPA ang 3 sundalo at naglabas ito ng proof of life nina Sgt. Solaiman Calocop at Pfc. Samuel Garay na nadakip sa bayan ng Colombio sa Sultan Kudarat. Nanawagan ang 2 sundalo sa pamahalaan na itigil ang rescue operation sa kanila at posibleng malagay sa panganig ang kanilang buhay. Iniimbestigahan ng NPA ang mga sundalo kaugnay sa human rights violations ng kanilang unit - ang 39th Infantry Battalion, ayon naman kay Dencio Madrigal, ang spokesman ng Valentin Palamine Command, sa hiwalay na pahayag nito sa Mindanao Examiner. “The two (soldiers) are

presently being investigated for their involvement in the crimes perpetrated by the 39th Infantry Battalion against the people and the revolutionary movement,” ani Madrigal. “The two prisoners of war also appealed to their battalion commander and the Armed Forces of the Philippines to cease all military operations as these only endanger their lives and safety. At present, however, combat troops of the 39th Infantry Battalion are still operating in Sultan Kudarat while their peace and development outreach program teams continue to make peasant and Lumad communities as military garrisons,” dagdag pa nito. Ilang dekada na rin nakikipaglaban ang NPA sa pamahalaan upang maitatag ang sariling estado sa bansa. (Mindanao Examiner)

Indonesians in Southern Philippines told to be vigilant DAVAO CITY – The Indonesian Consulate General in Davao City in southern Philippines has warned its citizens to stay safe and be wary of the security situation in the region following the series of armed clashes between security forces and communist rebels. In a statement posted

on its website, the Indonesian Foreign Ministry advised its nationals not travel to conflict-prone areas in the southern Philippines. Indonesians staying in the Philippines have also been told to follow closely the latest developments on the security situation in the

country. “Following the development, every Indonesian is urged to be vigilant during the situation, as there is a possibility of conflict between the Philippine governments forces and CPP-NPA (Communist Party of the PhilippinesNew People’s Army) in

DILG-ARMM strengthens capacity of law enforcement agencies in filing drug cases COTABATO CITY – The Department of the Interior and Local Government in the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (DILGARMM) said it is improving the capacity of law enforcement agencies with respect to the filing of cases on illegal drugs and illegal possession of firearms. Just recently, DILGARMM conducted an orientation on ‘Strengthening the Legal Capacity of Persons and Agents in Authority on Filing Drug Cases’. The participating agencies were the Philippine National Police-ARMM, Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency ( P D E A ) - A R M M , prosecutor’s offices from Maguindanao and Lanao del Sur, Criminal Investigation and Detection Group-ARMM, National Bureau of InvestigationARMM and the Department of Justice. Atty. Noor Hafizullah Abdullah, DILG-ARMM Secretary, said the orientation was conducted to boost

the capacity of persons and agents in authority specifically those involved in filing drug-related cases as well as in cases of illegal possession of firearms. Sec. Abdullah added that the orientation seminar is in response to the issue of low conviction rate of drug cases in the region and is part of the continuing legal education on filing drug cases in courts. “Pinag-aralan namin kung ano ang mga balakid, and we found out na mahina ang preparation or build-up ng case,” Sec. Abdullah said. Since 2003, there were 1,854 cases of illegal drugs in the region, 177 of which were filed in 2016. Out of these cases, only three resulted in conviction, two in 2003 and one in 2011. “There are certain cases also na at the prosecution level ay dini-dismiss na agad ang kaso,” the DILGARMM Secretary said. Cases dismissed immediately were recorded at 732, or about 40% of the total illegal

drug cases in the past 14 years. Valente Carino, Director II of PDEA-ARMM, said that 90% to 95% of illegal drug cases were dismissed because of lack of probable cause. Atty. Rohairah Lao, Maguindanao provincial prosecutor, said there are common mistakes committed by persons and agents in authority that result in the dismissal of cases. Lao said these include lack of elements of the crime charged, inconsistent or contradictory statements of arresting officers in their affidavits during the inquest, and lack of vital documents and evidence, among others. “We want that these policemen, in the subsequent filing of cases, be mindful doon sa mga procedural at substantial form nungcomplaint to the end na all those who are involved in the drug business will be convicted at the end of the day,” Sec. Abdullah added. (Bureau of Public Information)

after both sides failed to agree on the release of some 400 political detainees. (Mindanao Examiner)

Mindanao Regional Peace and Order Councils hold meeting with DILG chief

SULTAN KUDARAT – In a bid to respond to issues affecting peace and order in Southern Philippines, the Mindanao cluster of the Regional Peace and Order Councils (RPOC), comprising of council chairpersons and vice-chairpersons, held its first meeting at the Sultan Kudarat Provincial Capitol in Isulan town. Major concerns have been discussed in the meeting, including illegal drugs, illegal gambling, terrorism, and insurgency. The meeting was presided by Interior and Local Government Secretary Ismael Sueno and was also attended by Gov. Mujiv Hataman of the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM). Secretary Sueno said the RPOC meeting was aimed at synchronizing measures on how to restrain criminality, or any issue that affects the

peace and order situation in Mindanao. Sultan Kudarat Governor Sultan Pax Mangudadatu who is also the chairman of the Regional Peace and Order Council in Region 12, delivered the welcome remarks during the opening of the meeting. The RPOC chairpersons presented the security situations in their respective regions based on reports from local officials specifically on illegal drugs, illegal gambling, terrorism, and insurgency. “We want to provide safe and secure atmosphere that is conducive to the region’s residents and investors,” said Gov. Hataman, who took his oath of office as the RPOC chairperson before President Rodrigo Duterte in Malacañang in January. Aside from the ARMM, other regions in the Mindanao RPOC cluster are

Regions 9 (Zamboanga Peninsula); 10 (Northern Mindanao); 11 (Davao Region); 12 (Soccskargen); and 13 (Caraga). Resource persons from the Philippine National Police and the Armed Forces of the Philippines also presented the current peace and order situation on the island as per reports from their field units. Supt. Ireneo Dalogdog talked on illegal drugs and criminality while Maj. Gen. Carlito Galvez Jr., of the Western Mindanao Command, discussed insurgency. The RPOC plays a vital role in maintaining peace and order in every region in the country and keeps the members abreast of the prevailing conditions, issues, and concerns affecting the peace and order in their respective areas of jurisdiction.

TECH TIPS: How To Calibrate The Sensors On Your Smartphone

Some Xperia models come with their own software to diagnose sensor performance. / © AndroidPIT

SENSORS ARE those small, ignored components that are actually much more important than we think they are. Sensors make the majority of the most commonly used functions on your smartphone possible. They even help you save battery power. We're going to take a look at how to calibrate and keep your smartphone sensors in good working order. Motion sensors are the most important part of certain games, such as Asphalt 8 or Real Racing 3. The proximity sensor also helps us to save a lot of battery power by turning the display off while we're talking on the phone, or by measuring light and adjusting the brightness accordingly. From time to time, for some unknown reason, a sensor stops working like it should. Before deciding if it's broken or not, we're going to try to calibrate it. Sometimes the problem will fix itself. Check to see if yyour our sensors ar e wor king are working Like we've said, sensors are vital for many of the basic functions on your phone, but they’re known to stop working the way they should from time to time. Sometimes, the problem is that the app that uses a certain sensor isn't interpreting the data correctly. In order to find out if that's the case, the only thing you have to do is download a different app that uses the same sensor and try it out. For example, if in Asphalt 8 the car doesn't respond to your movements, try it on Real Racing 3.

It's not always as easy as testing another app though. On occasion, you'll need to use one of the following apps to dive into the depths of your smartphone in order to check if the sensors are taking measurements. In some cases, like Sony’s Xperia family (such as the Xperia Z3), phones come with a diagnostic tool. You can find it by going to Settings > About phone > Diagnostic, or just open the app from the app drawer. If you go to the Test tab, you can check the performance of each sensor separately or a do a complete diagnosis. For those devices that don’t come with this feature, we have an option to test sensor performance within the hidden menus. To access them, you'll need to go the phone dialer and put in a certain number combination. Android has secret codes to access each of their hidden settings, but there are some codes which change according to the manufacturer. You can test the performance of your sensors as well other features like the camera, the display or the audio in different diagnostic modes. Here are some examples. We have the code, *#*#4636#*#* in order to access status information about multiple components and usage statistics. For Xperia devices we also have this code, *#*#7378423#*#*, which during Service tests, you'll be able to check if on-screen items are working properly.

Calibr ating sensors alibrating There are a lot of reasons one might want to calibrate their phone's sensors. It might not be necessary, but you want to make sure that everything is calibrated perfectly. Or maybe something's not working properly, and you'd like to run this feature to see whether it's broken or not. Whatever your reason, some of your sensors can be calibrated, although this depends as much on your phone as on Google Play. On some LG devices, starting with LG G2, you can calibrate the motion sensor by going to Settings > General tab > Motion. All you need to do is follow the directions and in a matter of seconds, your sensor will be calibrated. There are some brands, like Sony, which don't let you calibrate all of the sensors. In this case, it would be better to access Google Play and find an app that can recalibrate the sensor that you're trying to fix up. If there isn't one available, there is another, more drastic way to do it. Resetting your phone to factory settings will normally recalibrate all the sensors automatically. Root users with cooked ROMs, Xposed modules and other Apps for this type of user, have even more options to personalize and control the sensors on their smartphones. However you diagnose and calibrate your phone, share your methods with us below. (Luis Ortega, AndroidPIT)

HEALTH: Bad Breath: Ano Ang Solusyon? Payo ni Dr. Willie T. Ong MARAMING TAO ang may bad breath. Minsan nahihiya tayong magsabi sa ating kamag-anak o kaibigan na may bad breath sila. Alamin natin ang solusyon dito. 1. Huwag kumain ng maraming bawang, sibuyas at sili. Nananatili ang amoy ng mga ito (galing sa essential oils) sa loob ng bibig ng 24 oras. Kahit anong sipilyo mo ay nandoon pa rin ang amoy. Subukang sumipsip ng calamansi para mabawasan ang amoy. 2. Huwag manigarilyo. Mabaho ang hininga nila at parang nakaamoy ka ng isang ashtray. Ihinto ito. 3. Umiwas sa spiced meats tulad ng pepperoni, salami at longganisa. Mayroon kasing maamoy na mantika na lalabas sa iyong pagdighay at hininga ng 24 oras. 4. Umiwas sa mabaho o malansang isda. May mga isda tulad ng bagoong, alamang o bangus na matagal maalis ang amoy sa ating hininga. Pumili na lang ng ibang isda. 5. Tubig lang ang dapat inumin. Ang kape, beer, alak at whisky ay nasa listahan ng maamoy

Dr. Willie T. Ong na inumin. Nag-iiwan ang mga ito ng residue (parang latak) sa ating bibig at sikmura. 6. Magmumog ng madalas. Kung wala pang pagkakataong magsipilyo, magmumog ng maraming beses pagkatapos kumain. Mababawasan din ang dumi sa iyong bibig. 7. Magbaon ng sipilyo. Pagkatapos kumain, magbrush ng ngipin para matanggal agad ang amoy. Magsipilyo ng 3 beses sa maghapon o bawat kain. 8. Gumamit ng tongue cleaner. Ito’y isang plastic na panlinis ng dila. Maraming bacteria at dumi ang maaalis sa paggamit ng tongue cleaner. Mas epektibo ang tongue cleaner kaysa sa pag-brush ng dila na gamit ang sipilyo. Gamitin ito 3 beses sa maghapon.

9. Gumamit ng dental floss. Maraming dumi at tinga (plaque) ang sumisingit sa ating ngipin. Kapag hindi ito naaalis ay mangangamoy bulok ito. Napakabaho po nito. Mag-floss kahit isang beses sa gabi. 10. Gumamit ng mouthwash. Kung may bad breath ka, may tulong din ang paggamit ng mouthwash. Maganda itong gamitin bago matulog. 11. Magpatingin sa dentista. Ang bad breath ay kadalasan nanggagaling sa nakatagong impeksyon sa bibig at gilagid. Minsan may sira pala ang iyong ngipin. 12. Kapag hindi pa rin mawala ang bad breath, kumonsulta sa isang doktor na espesyalista sa tiyan (gastroenterologist) o Ear Nose Throat (ENT doctor). Minsan nanggagaling ang bad breath sa loob ng ating lalamunan o tiyan. Huling tip: Kung ika’y nagmamadali, puwede din naman ang mga chewing gum na mint flavor. Ngunit panandalian lang ito at tinatakpan lang ang amoy. Iwaksi ang bad breath.

Order batok sa ilegal nga sugal, gilagdaan ni Duterte

CEBU - Gimanduan ni Presidente Rodrigo Duterte ang mga ahensiyang tigpatuman sa balaod sa nasod nga hingosgan pa ang kampanya batok sa ilegal nga sugal. Kini human gilagdaan sa Presidente ang Executive Order No. 13 o ang “Strengthening the Fight Against Illegal Gambling and Clarifying the Jurisdiction and Authority of Concerned Agencies in the Regulation and Licensing of Gambling and Online Gaming Facilities, and Other Purposes.” Ubos niining kamanduan, ang Philippine National Police, National Bureau of Investi-

gation ug uban pang law enforcement agencies gimanduan nga makigalayon sa Department of Justice, Department of the Interior and Local Government, ug sa Department of Information and Communications Technology sa pagpahigayon og mga operasyon batok sa ilegal nga sugal. Gimanduan usab ang mga law enforcement agencies nga aksiyunan ang mga request sa gambling regulatory authorities sama sa Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation nga imbestigahan ug tapuson ang mga ilegal nga aktibidad sa nasod. Samtang ang PAGCOR,

Cagayan Economic Zone Authority, Authority of the Freeport Area of Bataan, Aurora Pacific Economic Zone and Freeport Authority ug uban pang regulatory entities gipasumite sa Office of the President og consolidated report sulod sa unom ka buwan gikan sa petsa sa pagpagawas sa EO kalabot sa ilang kampanya batok sa ilegal nga sugal. Nakalatid pa sa EO nga dili mahimong ibalhin ang online gambling license sa ubang gambling operator. Gilagdaan ang maong EO human gipahunong ni Duterte ang NBI ug PNP sa pagpahigayon og operasyon batok sa ilegal nga droga. (Elvira C. Bongosia)

‘Drug-free sticker’, ipapilit sa balay sa adik – DILG CEBU - Tutokan sa Department of the Interior and Local Government ang mga pamilya sa mga barangay isip pagpadayon sa kampanya batok sa ilegal nga droga. Matud pa ni DILG Sec. Ismael Sueno, magbutang ang DILG og drug-free stickers sa mga balay aron dali nga matumbok ang mga balay sa mga drug pushers ug users.

Giingong mahimong mas epektibo kini kun itandi sa Oplan-Tokhang sa mga polis nga gipahunong na ni Presidente Rodrigo Duterte human gigamit sa mga police scalawags sa ilang interes. Matud pa nga ang mga adunay drug-free stickers nga mga balay ang motabang sa mga silingan niini nga apektado sa ilegal nga droga aron magbag-o ug ma-rehabilitate kun user,

ug maoy mokumbinsir nga motahan na lang sa otoridad kun pusher. Gilaoman sa kalihim nga gikan sa lebel sa pamilya, mosaka kini sa lebel sa komunidad hangtod sa probinsya ug modaghan ang mga lugar nga mahimong drugcleared na sa Philippine National Police ug Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency.
