Muslim areas,” said Illigan City police superintendent Roy Ga. “This conflict in Marawi – unfortunately, it is being committed by Muslims, so we have to make sure there are no sympathisers with the terrorists in this area.” The fighting began with a failed attempt by security

forces to capture Isnilon Hapilon, a member of the militant group Abu Sayyaf who the government says is affiliated with IS. The operation was foiled when Maute militants came to Hapilon’s aid, attacked security forces, and took control of the city centre. Continue on page 2

Battle for Marawi continues

Continued fr om page 1 from Philippine security forces have still not managed to dislodge Maute fighters, despite airstrikes that have leveled entire neighborhoods. The ongoing fighting has driven 360,000 people from their homes, according to a 7 August report by the UN emergency aid coordination body, OCHA. The report cited government estimates that Maute is holding as many as 100 civilians hostage. ‘S urr ounded b y people ‘Surr urrounded by with guns guns’’ Most of those who fled Marawi are staying with host families in nearby communities. The OCHA report said that about 23,000 people are sheltering in “evacuation centres”, which have been set up in places like the Santa Elena Education Center, a school in Illigan City, which is 40 kilometres from Marawi. “Even before the fighting, many people in Marawi City were armed with guns and it made my mother nervous,” said Isabel, a 14-year-old who fled with her family to take shelter at Santa Elena. “Now, we have escaped the fighting and we are still surrounded by people with guns.” Mindanao has been in a state of conflict for

decades, but there have been brief periods of hope while the government negotiated with the main insurgent groups. A peace deal with the largest Muslim insurgent organisation, the Moro Islamic Liberation Front, has been in limbo since the previous Congress failed to pass legislation that would have provided a legal foundation to establish a semi-autonomous region. Duterte’s government, which has been in power just over a year, has so far failed to revive the deal. Negotiators from both the government and MILF told IRIN just before last year’s election, which brought Duterte to power, that young insurgents who are disillusioned with the peace process were breaking away to form smaller groups. Those factions tend to take a more extremist approach and identify with IS, while Maute has also adopted the IS banner after years of operating as more of a cr iminal organisation. “ Wanted anted”” Duterte’s declaration of martial law gives his security forces greater powers to search out Islamist fighters, but rights groups and others fear it could exacerbate the

conflict if he keeps extending it or if it is abused. They point to Duterte’s blooddrenched first year in power as evidence of his autocratic tendencies and disregard for human rights. In a 20 July report, Human Rights Watch said at least 7,000 people have been killed in Duterte’s self-proclaimed war on drugs, which has overwhelmingly targeted poor people rather than criminal kingpins. On July 22, Congress approved Duterte’s extension of martial law until the end of the year. Risa Hontiveros, a highprofile senator who voted against the extension, voiced her opposition on Twitter, making reference to the casualties of Duterte’s violent yearlong crackdown: “I do not trust a government that has played God with the lives of 8-12 thousand Filipinos to wield martial law judiciously.” When martial law was first declared, Human Rights Watch warned that it should not be “a free pass for abuse”, as that would cause the strategy to backfire by alienating those affected by the conflict. For now, many people in Illigan City seem supportive of the

security forces’ efforts to track down militants, despite the disruptions to their daily lives. A 9pm curfew is in place and walls are plastered with posters that say, “Wanted: Local Terrorists”, and show the mug shots of 30 men. Police check those mug shots against drivers’ licenses at checkpoints throughout the city. “If you talk to the

people out here helping the authorities, you will see it is Christians and Muslims out here together,” said Mary Ann, who brought tea and snacks to officers searching her neighbourhood. “It is the only way we will all get through this mess." Residents have also been asked to cooperate with security forces and report any suspects, even

though this can lead to false alarms. Just recently, police responded to a call from a neighborhood watch group that reported a man stockpiling weapons. They pried open the man’s door and he awoke to find them inside his house inspecting only a homemade spear gun, which he said he made for his own protection. ( Wes Bruer / IRIN)

25 LGUs in ARMM to undergo validation for 2017 SGLG award COTABATO CITY – A total of 25 local government units (LGUs) in the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) have passed the assessment for the 2017 Seal of Good Local Governance (SGLG). Secretary Noor

Hafizullah Abdullah, of the ARMM’s Interior and Local Government, said the LGUs are potential passers for the prestigious SGLG award. “The 25 LGUs will still undergo a more strict assessment and national

validation before the final list of passers (will be released),” Sec. Abdullah said. “It’s (a confirmation) that the LGUs in ARMM are really providing better services to their constituents.” The SGLG is among the

Continued fr om page 1 from volunteer reporter Leodoro Diaz and Rudy Dahunan Alicaway, broadcaster for Radyo ng Bayan dxPB – were murdered recently in southern Philippines. Diaz was killed in the village of Kalanawi in Sultan Kudarat’s President Quirino town in SOCCSKSARGEN Region (12) which accounts for the most number of media killings in the country. Diaz’s murder was 14th in the region. Alicaway was also shot and killed in the village of Culo in Molave town in Zamboanga del Sur province. He was also a councilman in the village of Miligan. Diaz’s killing was also the 14th in Zamboanga Peninsula. Secretary Martin Andanar, of the Presidential Communications Operations Office who is also the PTFoMS Co-Chairman, gave specific order to Undersecretary Joel Egco, PTFoMS Executive Director, to immediately act on the cases. Egco immediately met

with Superintendent Eder Collantes, Police Directorate for Investigation and Detective Management (DIDM) Task Force Usig, to map out strategies on how to speed up the investigation of the murders. “Upon instruction by Secretary Martin Andanar, we have instructed PNP Task Force Usig to immediately conduct a probe and for local probers to apprehend the culprits and identify the mastermind. We are also sending a separate directive for the National Bureau of Investigation to join the investigation. Sultan Kudarat is in region 12 which accounts for one of the most number of media killings since 1986. There are 13 cases in our inventory. If the killing of Leo Diaz will be established to be work related, his case would be the 14th on our list,” Egco said. He said the PTFoMS is fully committed to discharge its function in keeping media workers free from any and all forms of threats and violence that may be carried out against them.

Last week, Egco travelled to Sultan Kudarat and held a meeting with Senior Superintendent Raul Supiter, the provincial police chief, to personally look into the slaying of Diaz. He also met with the family and friends of Diaz and other journalists who are members of SOCCSKSARGEN Press Club and Sultan Kudarat Press, and local government officials. “We will remain focused on the fulfilment of our mission to achieve the ends of justice despite some people's little knowledge and appreciation of what we do. The task at hand is not an easy one, but it is not impossible,” he said. The PTFoMS has been hard at work since October 2016 responding to complaints from journalists who believed their safety has been threatened as well as mobilizing law enforcement and the National Prosecutorial services to act on issues of media security.

Department of the Interior and Local Government’s flagship programs as it symbolizes integrity and good performance of LGUs through continuing governance reform and sustained local development. SGLG is guided by the provisions of Republic Act 716 or the Local Government Code of 1991, the General Appropriations Act of 201 and Administrative Order No. 267 of 1992. It is a progressive assessment system adopted by the department to give recognition and distinction to remarkable local government performance across several areas. For SGLG 2017, a ‘4+1’ assessment criteria were applied. LGUs must pass four

core areas namely Financial Administration, Disaster Preparedness, Social Protection, and the new additional area Peace and Order. They must also pass at least one essential area, either, Business Friendliness and Competitiveness; Tourism, Culture and the Arts; or Environmental Protection. In 2016, six LGUs in the region were awarded with the Seal of Good Local Governance. ARMM was a zero passer in the previous year. The 2016 awardees were the province of Maguindanao, the city of Lamitan in Basilan, and the towns of North Upi and Parang in Maguindanao, Wao in Lanao del Sur, and Jolo in Sulu. The national govern-

ment has cited the ARMM as the most improved region in terms of peace and order as well as financial administration during that year. ARMM Governor Mujiv Hataman said good governance practices should be emulated by all LGUs in the region. All qualified LGUs will be conferred with a 2017 SGLG marker, a national recognition, and a cash incentive through the Performance Challenge Fund to finance their local development projects. A special distinction will be given to LGUs, which have consistently passed all the assessment areas since 2015. Conferment of the Seal will be held in October. (Bureau of Public Information)

DOH Keeps Eye on Bird Flu outbreak ZAMBOANGA CITY – The Department of Health (DOH) said it is closely monitoring the avian flu outbreak in poultry in Pampanga where the Department of Agriculture (DA) decided to cull some 500,000 chickens to contain the animal outbreak. The DOH said it will now look for human cases that may have been exposed to avian flu strain in affected areas. “Any person who becomes sick with fever or sore throat or cough and had exposure to these dead chickens should report to the local health center or nearest hospital for laboratory confirmation,” it said. It added that a team of DOH epidemiologists was

dispatched to assist the DA in the outbreak investigation and has alerted hospitals in the affected areas to report similar cases. “All health providers should observe respiratory precautions when taking care of patients with flu or flu-like illness,” DOH said, adding, properly cooked chicken remains safe to eat. Just recently, authorities in southern Philippines seized thousands of duck eggs and tons of dressed chicken which were shipped from Manila for fear of bird flu contamination. Some 35,000 eggs were intercepted by the Bureau of Animal Industry from a ferry after it was found that it came from the town of Candaba

near San Luis in Pampanga province where an outbreak of bird flu was reported. The shipment was discovered by the quarantine service and had been ordered seized. It was not immediately known whether the eggs originally came from San Luis and passed through Candaba to evade the ban on poultry products from the province contaminated by the avian influenza virus common among birds. Some 21 tons of dressed chicken were also intercepted in Cagayan de Oro City which was shipped from the Port of Manila. Authorities were investigating whether it came from Pampanga.

Sulu development projects on-going in Jolo town SULU – The Sulu Provincial Government continues to implement various infrastructure projects as part of its peace and development efforts. Governor Totoh Tan

started the fencing project of the Jolo Airport and the construction of two classrooms at the Hajji Hassiman Elementary School-Laud. Support to literary and education is one of Tan’s top

priority projects. Members of the Barangay Tulay Council in Jolo town also thanked Sulu Governor Totoh Tan for various office equipment and furniture he

donated following their request intended to increase productivity and a conducive working atmosphere for civil workers. Francisca Hairal, Barangay Tulay chair-

woman, praised Tan for his immediate donation and thanked the governor for his support. “The equipment would surely increase productivity in the office and maximize re-

sults in the work place,” she said. “The new office equipment will save time and energy and result to better services for the people.” (Ahl-franzie Salinas)

TECH TIPS: 7 Simple Tips to Speed Up Your Phone YOUR ANDROID phone was probably fast when you first bought it, right? Then over time it began running more slowly. This is a common problem and nothing to worry about. Below is our guide to getting your phone fast again. Read on for our best tips to speed up your phone. 1. IIdentify dentify the pr oblem problem The first thing to do is find out what is causing the problem: an app, multiple apps, the system itself? Trepn Profiler by Qualcomm will show you the real-time CPU load for individual cores, an overview of network traffic for both data andWi-Fi, GPU loads and RAM usage and more. Trepn can also produce app-specific or system-wide profiles and contains various methods for displaying accumulated data. You can save your profiled data for offline viewing and analysis and even have performance overlays on running apps. Once you've figured out your specific issue, you can move on to the solutions below. 2. F Frree up some space All those photos you've taken and all of those apps you’ve installed can take their toll on your phone. It needs a little breathing room to run smoothly and if it's running low on space, it can start to slow down. You can check how much space you have left by heading to the Storage section of Settings. One of the easiest ways to free up space is to tap Applications and see which apps you can uninstall. Tap the entry for an app you no longer need and then tap Uninstall. You can repeat this process as many times as necessary for any apps you feel you can live without. There are other ways you can free up space. The files you have downloaded are probably still sitting in storage wasting space and can be removed. In Storage, tap Downloads, select the files you want to remove and then tap the Bin button.

Many of the apps you have installed use data caches in an attempt to speed up operations. This is effective up to a point, but if you are running short of space, it can actually be counter-productive. To free up this space, hit the Clear cached data option and then tap OK to confirm. More files ripe for deletion can be found in the Miscellaneous files section. Tick the boxes next to any types of file you'd like to remove – backups, files received via Bluetooth, playlist files, and so on – and then tap the bin button. You can keep an eye on how much space you have freed up when you look at the Available space section. You can also disable any apps that came pre-loaded on your phone but you don’t use. If you have rooted your Android, you can actually get rid of these apps, but if not, you can go to the app properties and disable it to prevent it from running and using up your phone’s resources. 3. C ut back on the widCut gets All those widgets you have running on your home screen may be useful, but they also take up their fair share of resources. If you have any widgets running that you don’t really need, consider disabling them. There's no harm in having some active, but you will notice an element of slow-down if you have too many running at the same time, so just be a little selective. 4. D isable unnecessar y Disable unnecessary animations and extr as extras Depending on the launcher you are using, you may find that there are various animations and special effects in place. These may look great, but they can also slow things down. Check in your launcher's settings to see if there is a way to disable any of these unnecessary extras, and you could earn yourself a speed boost. 5. Close do wn apps and down

fr ee up RAM free Multi-tasking several apps makes it easy to switch between different tools, but there can also be an impact on performance. You can quickly close down any apps you are no longer using by calling up the running apps list – press and hold the home key and then swipe away any apps you want to exit. While you are at this screen, tap the pie chart button to the lower right of the screen and then move to the RAM section. Tap the Clear memory button and any background processes that are running unnecessarily will be closed down. 6. R estar our device Restar estartt yyour A quick and simple fix for a slow device is to simply restart it. This can clear out the cache, stop unnecessary tasks from running, and get things running smoothly again. Just hold down the power button, select the Restart option, and then tap OK to confirm. 7. D ig deeper Dig You can also keep tabs on the apps that are using lots of battery by going to Settings > Battery. You can also monitor RAM usage in Settings > Apps (or App Manager, depending on your brand of phone) and there's even more nerdy goodies in Process Stats in Developer Options – if you don't have this setting enabled, go to Settings > About Phone and tap Build Number seven times until a notification pops up. We've shared some other great apps for monitoring system performance on Android, apps to give your Android a performance boost and tips to increase available RAM on Android. From what we can see Trepn Profiler deserves a rightful place amongst these other A-listers. Do you have any tips and techniques you use to speed up your phone? Do you have any apps you use optimize the process? (Scott Adam Gordon, AndroidPIT)

HEALTH: Masakit Ang Tuhod? Basahin ito Payo ni Dr. Willie T. Ong ANG SAKIT sa tuhod ay nararamdaman ng maraming tao. Kadalasan ito nag-uumpisa sa edad 40 pataas. Ang pangunahing dahilan ng pagsakit ng tuhod ay ang arthritis, isang sakit ng pag-edad. Kung ika’y sobra sa timbang, mas maagang sasakit ang tuhod mo. Kung sobra ka rin sa ehersisyo, tulad ng mga runner, kickboxer o basketball player, puwedeng mapuwersa din ang iyong tuhod. Ano Ang Dapat Iwasan? • Huwag mag-buhat ng mabibigat. Kung mayroon kang bubuhatin, magpatulong sa isang kasama para kalahati lang ang bigat. • Huwag palaging umakyat at bumaba sa hagdanan. Malaki ang stress sa tuhod ng paggamit ng hagdan. • Huwag tumayo o mag-lakad ng matagal. Umupo paminsan-minsan at magpahinga. Mas relaks ang tuhod kapag tayo’y nakaupo. • Huwag mag-high heels. Alam kong mas sexy ang babae kapag nakahigh heels, pero malaki din

Dr. Willie T. Ong ang stress nito sa ating tuhod. • Huwag lumuhod sa sahig. Nakasisira ito ng tuhod. Kapag ika’y nasa simbahan, gamitin ang malambot na kutson para sa iyong tuhod. Ano Ang Dapat Gawin? • Kung ika’y sobra sa timbang, kailangan magpapayat. Hindi kasi kaya ng tuhod ang bigat ng iyong tiyan! • Bumili ng rubber shoes o malambot na sapatos. Mag-tsinelas din. Makatutulong ito para hindi matagtag ang tuhod. • Palakasin ang masel sa ating hita. May mga ehersisyo para dito. Puwede ang stationary bike o magbending exercise ng

bahagya lang (Half squat at hindi full squat.). Masama ang sobrang pagbaluktot ng tuhod lampas sa 90 degrees. • Kapag umiinit ang tuhod sa matagalang paglalakad, puwedeng lagyan ng malamig na bag o cold compress. • Palakasin ang buto. Uminom ng skim milk (gatas) na may maraming calcium. Para sa mga kababaihan, uminom din ng calcium supplements. • Subukan ang Glucosamine at chondroitin tablets. Ang supplement na ito ay maaaring makabawas sa sakit ng ating tuhod. Ayon sa pagsusuri, posibleng matulungan ng glucosamine ang maninipis nating kasu-kasuan (joints). • Kapag hindi nawala ang sakit sa tuhod, magpakonsulta sa isang orthopedic surgeon o rheumatologist. • Tandaan: Ingatan at alagaan ang tuhod. Huwag puwersahin at tagtagin sa trabaho. Ipahinga ang tuhod para humaba ang gamit natin nito. Good luck po.

Hunt on for rebels who seized cop KIDAPAWAN CITY – Security forces were hunting down communist insurgents who seized a policeman in a daring mission in Kidapawan City in southern Philippines. Police said PO3 Briston Catalan just brought his children to school and was returning home on a motorcycle when he was intercepted last week by armed men – believed to be

members of the New People’s Army – and taken captive. It was unknown whether Catalan was armed or not, but police said he is assigned in the town of Makilala in North Cotabato province and residing in Kidapawan. Police did not say why it failed to detect the presence of rebels in the city despite tight security in the region

due to President Rodrigo Duterte’s declaration of martial law nearly three months ago. The military also did not release any statement on the audaciously bold operation of the NPA, which is fighting for a separate rule in the country. Last year, the rebels also seized PO1 Romy Solana, of the Makilala police force, and executed him. (Rhoderick Beñez)
