BUHAY NA BUHAY AKO – MAYOR BERNABE

Parañaque City Ma yor J un Ber na be May Jun Berna nabe

(Mula sa pahina 1) Ayaw man sanang patulan ni Mayor Bernabe, ang pagka-desperado nabigong politiko na kanyang nakatunggali sa halalan, subalit hindi ito tumigil sa sunud-sunod na pagpapadala ng mga korona ng patay, bulaklak at mass card sa kanyang tahanan.

pan sa Parañaque City hall ay nagpatawag ito ng press con para ipakita ang mga ipinadalang bagay para sa mga ‘patay’ ng nabigong kalaban nito. Sinabi pa ng alkalde, na walang katotohanan na ito ay inatake sa puso na dahilan ng kanyang pagkamatay, aniya sa katunayan ay nagagawa pa nitong maglaro ng tennis sa Tahanan Village sa nasabing lungsod kung saan isinagawa ang press conference. Isa pang patunay na

malakas ang alkalde, ay hindi man lamang nitong nagawang lumuwas ng ibang bansa o mag out of town sa katatapos na halalan para makapag-relaks at ipahinga ang sarili dahil sa ilang buwan rin nitong pagsasagawa ng preparasyon at pangangampanya. Sa unahin ang sarili, ay naisip pa rin nito ang kapakanan ng kanyang mga constituent at pagsilbihan ang mga ito sa patuloy na pagbibigay serbisyo pub-

Mga Director ng DPWH na nakinabang sa Administrasyon Arroyo magbalot-balot na! PBN Reportorial Team BINABALAAN kamakailan ng mga taong malapit kay President in-waiting Senator Noynoy Aquino na mag-file na ng Voluntarily Resignation ang mga director ng DPWH na sobrang nakinabang sa panahon ni Pang. Arroyo, partikular yaong mga na-appoint na hindi naman kwalipikado na hawakan ang mga sensitibong posisyon sa kagawaran. Sinabi pa ng taong malapit sa bagong Pangulo ng Republika, na kilala aniya nila ang mga

director na ito, kabilang dito ang Director ng Region 8 (RD Angelito Twaño), CAR RD (Guillas), NCR RD (Edilberto Tayao), R-3 RD (Tolentino), at Region 1 RD (M. Alquiza), Region 5 RD (Danilo Manalang) at Region X RD (Jerome dela Rosa). Hindi rin ligtas na masibak sa pwesto ang ilan sa mga PMO Director, at isa na rito ang si CAMANAVA PD Macariola Bartolo na halos nag-iwan ng malaking bangungot sa Camanava dahil walang nabago sa kanilang lugar sa laki ng problema kaugnay ng Flood Control, NRIM II PD Mutuc, RRNDP PD Gil Villanueva, ADB-PMO PD Villar at Metro

Cebu PD Nilo Pamaylaon. Kasama na dito ang Bureau Director na matagal ng umuukupa ng mga sensitibong posisyon, kahit na di sila physically fit na isang batayan para humawak ng sensitibong posisyon sa DPWH. Marapat din daw na physically fit ang hahawak sa isang maituturing na “action post,” tulad ng Bureau of Construction, na hawak ngayon ni Dir. Walter Ocampo, na isang differently-able person, at naging biktima ng polio, at hirap mag-inspeksyon sa mga project sites ng kagawaran. “Kaya kung may delicadeza ang mga nabanggit na

mga director, dapat na magsumite na sila ng kanilang mga resgnation letter bago maupo ang bagong Presidente ng bansa, upang mapag-aralan ng evaluation team kung sino ang dapat na humalili sa kanila at maipalit sa kanilang mga hinahawakan posisyon,” ayon sa mga source na malapit kay incoming President Noynoy Aquino. Napatunayan rin ng evaluation team ng susunod na Administration na garapalan nagkamal ng di maipaliwanag na yaman ang mga director na nabigyan ng poder, ika nga nayanig sa kontrobersiya ang mga Road Projects ng DPWH sa panahon ng Arroyo Administration.

ITO NA ANG SIMULA NG BAGONG PASAY-CALIXTO

PANIBAGONG pagasa ngayon ang hinihintay ng mga taga Pasay sa bago nilang inihalal na mayor na si incumbent City Vice Mayor Antonino “Tony” Calixto sa katatapos na May 10, election. Ayon kay Calixto, mariing sinabi nito sa harap ng kanyang mga constituent nang iprokalama ito ng ma city board of canvassers sa Cuneta Astrodome May 28 You shall receive Power when the Holy Spirit has come upon You; and shall be Witness to Me… to The end of the earth. -Acts 1:8

kamakailan na, simula na ng bagong Pasay, matapos ang mahabang panahon na panunungkulan ni Pasay City Mayor Wenceslao “Peewee” Trinidad. Aniya, kapag pormal na itong maupo bilang alkalde ng lungsod sa darating na Hulyo 1, ay ipagpapatuloy nito ang mga magagandang sinimulan ni outgoing Mayor Trinidad at ipapatupad nito ang kanyang mga pangakong binitawan para sa mga Pasayeños.

THE BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: 2 Chronicles 4-6 John 10:24-42 WITNESS In a criminal court case, witness provide vital imformation about a possible crime. Being a witness means telling the court the truth about what you know. Just a criminal justice system relies heavily on witness, Jesus uses bold, faithful, and credible witmess to spread His Word and build His church. Before Jesus Ascended to His Father, He gave His disciple a final commandto launch a worldwide witnessing campaign. The Holy Spirit would come upon them and give them supernatural power to be His witnesses throughout the world (Acts1:8). Jesus called these early apostles to go into a world where people did not know about Him and give a thruthful account of what they had seen, heard, and experienced (Acts 4:19-20). Since they had witnessed His perfect life, teachings, suffering, death burial, and resurrection (Luke 24:48; Acts 1-5), they were to go out and give a thruthful testimony about Him. In taking the gospel to the ends of the world, we are called to testify to the thruth about Jesus and how He has changed our lives. “How shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard?” (Rom.10:14.)

bago sa Pasay, ay i-angat ang ekonomiya ng lungsod, i-angat ang kalidad ng edukasyon ng mga magaaral, kabuhayan at trabaho para sa mga residente at mga computer/skills program. Nagpapasalamat rin ang bise alkalde sa kanyang mga constituent dahil sa tiwalang ibinigay nila para rito. Mabibihisan na nga ba ang Pasay City! Malaki naman ang paniniwala ngayon ng mga taga-Pasay kay Vice Mayor Calixto, na mabibihisan na nito ang lungsod hindi lamang sa panlabas at panloob ng siyudad kundi sa kasulok-sulukan nito. Ayon sa ilang grupo sa lungsod, ayaw nilang maniwala na sa mga paratang sa magkapatid na Calixto (Vice mayor Calixto at nanalong Congresswoman Emi Calixto) na ibinenta ng mga ito ang Pasay sa isang Jorge del Rosario. Anila, nilang pakana lamang ito ng mga talunang politiko sa katatapos na halalan kung kaya’t hindi sila basta-basta maniniwala sa nasabing balitang naglalabasan. At ang tanging, inaasahan nila ngayon sa liderato ng magkapatid na Calixto ay tuparin ang kanilang mga ipinangako at gampanan ang sinumpaang tungkulin . “Sa tatlong taon ni Mayor Calixto, siguro naman may makikita tayong linaw sa sinasabing niyang Bagong Pasay”, ani pa ng mga ito.

liko para lamang hindi maantala ang takbo ng serbisyo sa loob at labas ng city hall ganun din ang mga proyektong nakahandang ipatupad. “Ang hirap kasi sa ilang politikong hindi matanggap ang kabiguan ay nasobrahan ang pagka-desperado kaya sila ay nagha-hallucinate at kung anu-ano ang naglalaro sa kanilang isipan, sila rin ang gumagawa ng sarili

nilang multo para kanilang katakutan, kaya hindi ako magtataka baka balang araw sa kanila mangyari ang balitang kanilang ipinapakalat”, ani pa ng alkalde. Tinalo ni Mayor Jun Bernabe si dating mayor at komedyante-aktor Joey “Tsong” Marquez at outgoing Parañaque 1 st Dist Congressman Eduardo “EDZA” Zialcita.

DPWH sabit sa bilyong pisong raket ng Road Board imbestigahan; MVUC fund nalusaw? PBN-Reportorial Team DAIG pa diumano ng taga-National Road Board ang may mina ng ginto sa kanilang walang habas na pagwawaldas ng pondo na nalilikom sa ilalim ng Road Users’ Tax, o ang Motor Vehicles Users Charge (MVUC), ayon sa mga kritiko at analysts. Tinatayang may kabuuang mga Php50 bilyon na ang nakokolekta na pondo sapul ng maipasa ang Republic Act No. 8794 noong Hunyo 27, 2000. Sa malas, walang “accountability” o pagpapanagot na sinusunod ang mga National Road Board, kahit inaatasan na sila ng Commission on Audit na huwag nilang basta-basta galawin ang naturang pondo. Pinakamalaking pork barrel fund umano ang Road Users Tax na di-natataya, ayon kay Senador Miriam Defensor-Santiago. Isang kinatawan naman sa Mindanao, si Rep. Mujiv Hataman, ang nagsiwalat na noong mga taong 2004 at 2005, ginamit ng Road Board ang halagang Php150 milyon bilang bonus para sa kanilang mga empleyado, sa halip na para sa pagsasaayos ng mga sirang daan. Iniaatas ng batas (RA 8794) na ang pondong nalilikom ng MVUC ay ilalaan bilang pangunahing emergency fund sakaling magkaroon ng aberya, o di-inaasahang pagkasira, pagkabuwal ng mga tulay at pagmamantini at pagpapabuti ng daluyan ng daan (road maintenance and improvementof road drainage), at paglalagay ng sapat at matinong ilawtrapiko at iba pang gamit para sa kaligtasan sa daan (road safety devices), at pagkontrol sa polusyon sa hangin (air pollution control). Sa malas, ang lumalabas na siste ay ang pagpapalabas ng pondo para sa mga proyektong ito ay depende sa temperatura o gising sa umaga o “mood” na tinatawag ng mga taga-National Road Board kung magkano o sino ang bibiyayaan nila ng pondo, ayon sa mga eksperto. “Walang malinaw na patakaran o alituntunin kung ano ang matinong pamantayan ng Road Board sa kanilang pagrerelease ng pondo para sa isang partikular na daan o highway sa anumang

panig ng kapuluan,” ayon sa isang source. Higit pa rito, walang poder ang Kongreso sa pagkontrol at pag-aallocate ng pondong nalikom sa MVUC dahil na rin sa istipulasyon ng naturang batas, kung kaya’t dapat itong maamyendahan, ayon kay Rep. Al Francis Bichara. Wala ring pagkakapantay-pantay sa pondong ibinibigay para sa pagmamantini ng national at provincial roads, wika ni Bichara. “At dahil nga wala ito sa kontrol ng COA, tila may mina ng ginto, o para lang namimitas ng pera sa puno ang Road Board kung saan nila nanaiising gastusin ang pondong nalikom na sa kanila’y inilaan. Ito’y imoral at ilegal, kung tutuusin,” wika pa ng isang eksperto at kritiko. May pitong (7) miyembro ang Road Board, na kung saan ex-officio head ang kalihim ng Department of Public Works & Highways (DPWH), at ex-officio members naman ang mga kalihim ng kagawaran ng Finance, Budget & Management at DoTC (Dept. of Transportation & Communication). Ang natitirang tatlong (3) miyembro ay dapat manggaling sa sektor ng transport at mga motorista. Subalit sinasabi ng mga eksperto na ang mga direktor sa Road Board ang tunay na makapangyarihan sa pagwawaldas sa pondo ng naturang Board.” Ang mga direktor ang siyang nagdedsisyon sa pondo at daan na pagkakagastusan ng anumang pondong mailalabas, ayon sa mga nakaaalam. Ganunpaman, ang isang direktor na kasapi sa Road Board, si Director Luis Mamitag ng BOM (Bureau of Maintenance)-DPWH ay nagwikang “iniwan” na siya ng mga kapwaniya direktor sa naturang Board sa iba’t ibang kadahilanan. Nakahanda na raw “magpakulong” ang naturang direktor kung sakali at siya’y maiimbestigahan at mapapatunayan na maysala sa kung anuman ang ibibintang sa kanya.

Midyear bonus granted to 3T Caloocan and Navotas workers OVER 3, 000 employees of the Caloocan City and Navotas City governments got their midyear bonus which they can use to buy for the school needs of their children as elementary and high school classes start next month, local officials said over the weekend. In Caloocan, Mayor Enrico “Recom” Echiverri, who got fresh mandate after getting reelected for his last and third term last May 10 polls, said that the 1,700 regular employees have just received their bonuses. The bonus, which came just in time for families preparing for the reopening of schools, is equivalent to half their mandatory 13 th month salary and half of the P5, 000 cash gift for government workers, he said. “The Caloocan City government has prioritized the early release

of the mid-year bonus each year to enable all our co-public servants who are parents of schoolaged children to provide for their needs in time for school opening in June,” he said in a statement. The release of bonus is also expected to give employees a relief amid the economic crisis. Meanwhile, the other half of the employees’ bo-

nus including their cash gift will be released in December, Echiverri said. In nearby Navotas, outgoing Mayor Toby Tiangco said that the over 1, 198 City Hall employees have also gotten their release of the midyear bonus and half of cash gift. The mayor’s move was prompted by the employees’ wish for the early granting of the midyear

bonus in time for the school opening and to allow them to prepare for the school needs of their children. Tiangco, who will be the city’s representative for the lone congressional post, ordered the concerned offices to facilitate the early release of the funds for the midyear bonus to allow the employees to have enough funds for their children’s enrollment and miscellaneous expenses this coming school year, which opens next month. Tiangco, who will be succeeded by his younger brother, John Rey, who both ran unchallenged last May 10 polls, said priority was given to the early release of the bonus. “We want to help our city hall employees to avoid the school opening rush and to cope with the expected increase in the prices of school supplies as the school opening draw near,” the three-termer city chief executive said.

Valenzuela to build bridge to connect 2 riverside villages in the city to Caloocan THE Valenzuela government has initiated the establishment of a P1.7-million hanging bridge which will connect the two riverside villages of Ugong in the city and Talipapa in Caloocan City, according to Mayor Sherwin Gatchalian. Fresh from getting reelected for the last and third term as city chief executive, Gatchalian said the proposed bridge, once built, will largely help the residents in the area as travel time in going to Caloocan is expected to be cut by half. The hanging bridge named La Mesa Bridge, which will complement two other concrete bridges over Talipapa River which separates the two adjoining cities, will have its structural profile that can allow motorcycles to pass through it, the mayor said. According to Ranier Ronda of the local engi-

NPD’s “Pulis Ko, Titser Ko” program needs sponsors for expansion THE Northern Police District (NPD) is appealing to generous individuals or groups to help out in the expansion of the first “Pulis Ko, Titser Ko” program in time with the opening of classes next month. According to NPD director Chief Supt. Samuel Pagdilao Jr., they have decided to push for its extension following the success of the pilot program which involved some 480 Grade4 pupils from at least eight schools in Caloocan, Malabon, Navotas, Valenzuela (CAMANAVA) area who graduated last March 15. “We have decided to extend the program to eight more schools, that

is why we are inviting people with kind hearts to help us continue with the project,” said Pagdilao, a lawyer. He said he already directed the NPD’s chiefs of several police community relations at the station level to help find possible benefactors in order to support the continuation of the project aimed at teaching school children subjects that will help them become responsible, productive and lawabiding citizens when they grow up. For the expansion of the “Pulis Ko, Titser Ko” program, Pagdilao said the project will require additional number of school supplies, reading and information materials and

NPD Director Chief Supt. Samuel Pagdilao other instructional materials like the text books to be used by the additional pupils that the expanded program will cover. During the first initiative which was launched on September 19, 2009, the Department of Education’s local school division and

the district’s Police Community Relations Division under Supt. Ferdinand Del Rosario have collaborated in the formulation of the curriculum and the manufacture the text book used by the pupils under the program. The curriculum was patterned with the standard teaching methods for grade four pupils in lessons on love of God, nationalism, respect for and obedience to our laws and law enforcers, and similar social norms, Filipino customs and tradition with hope that these kids will emerge as responsible and productive citizens of the country. Also included in the curriculum were lessons on crime prevention and per-

sonal safety, according to Pagdilao, a lawyer. The first program, which was concluded last March 15, was a success because of the support given by the Philippine Savings Bank (PSBank) and the Bernabest Food Corporation (Siomai House), which provided the snack for the duration of the project, said Pagdilao who expressed gratitude to the sponsors of the first project. The NPD chief explained that the program was a great leap on NPD’s law enforcement for reason that it enabled the police to prevent the people in the community from falling at the hands of criminals through efforts that transcend common police work. (C.A.)

Valenzuela City Mayor Gatchalian neering department, the project, a 1.2 meter wide and 64-meter long suspension bridge, will be built nine meters above the Tullahan River hoisted by cable wires and will have steel plates for flooring. He said the proposed project, which is expected to be completed next month in time for the coming rainy season, can hold up to 80 people at any given time. Lighting fixtures will also be put in the hanging bridge to deter criminal elements from doing their illegal activities in the area, according to the mayor. He told reporters that it was part of the city government’s infrastructure initiatives on Tullahan River to improve accessibility and provide safer foot traffic for residents living along the banks of the river. Meanwhile, the city government has also opened the newlyrepaired and improved GSIS Bridge connecting the two cities which was heavily damaged by floods caused by Typhoon Ondoy. (C.A.)

Friday - Saturday, May 28 - 29, 2010 ers, ang joint house and senate for the president and vice president, nananatili ang pag-asa ni Erap na makakahabol pa siya kay Noynoy. Ganoon din ang pananaw ni Margaux Salcedo, tagapagsalita ni Erap at losing senatorial candidate Kit Tatad na nagtatanong din kung saan napunta ang mga botatante niya. *** Naging labanan ng mga religious group ang nakaraang eleksiyon at napatunayan ng Iglesia ni Cristo na mayroon silang bilang at may solid vote nang papanulunin nila si Noynoy. Sinuportahan ng grupo ni Apollo Quiboloy si Gibo Teodoro pero talo. Inindorso ng El Shaddai ni Mike Velarde si Manny pero poor third lang. Kaunti lang rin ang nakuhang boto ni Eddie Villanueva mula sa

Eleksiyon: Labanan ng relihiyon! AG-CONCEDE na si N Manny Villar kay Noynoy Aquino sa pres-

idential race na hindi naman kinakailangan dahil malaki ang agwat ng kanilang boto. Mahigit kalahati ang lamang ni Noynoy kay Manny na pinaniniwalaang mahigpit na magkalaban sa presidency until malantad na si Erap pala ang talagang kalaban ni Noynoy. Kung si Erap, sa halip na si Noynoy ang sinuportahan ng Iglesia ni Cristo, ang former action star sana ang ating Presidente. Hindi pa rin nagkoconcede si Erap kay Noynoy sa presidential race hoping against hope na maikonsidera ang mga boto na hindi raw nabilang tulad ng sa San Juan at ibang bayan ng Rizal kung saan pumangalawa o pumangatlo lang siya. Hanggang hindi raw ipino-proklama ng national board of canvass-

mga born again. Hindi nag-endorso ang Catholic Church ngunit mapipiho na sila ang bumoto kay Erap. *** Labanan din ng makatotohanan at bolang campaign line ang napansin nitong nakaraang eleksiyon mula sa iba’t ibang presidentiable. Notable of course ang mga pinaghirapan ng mga creative minds ng mga nangunang kandidato. Nariyan ang kay Noynoy na “ Walang mahirap kung walang korap” at “Hindi ako magnanakaw”. Hindi naman nagpahuli si Manny sa kaniyang “ Wakasan ang kahirapan” at “ Hindi bawal mangarap ang mahirap”. Nagklik sa masa ang “Kung may Erap may ginhawa” kahit na parang script sa pelikula ang dating. Hindi naman masayadong pumatok ang “galing at talino” ni Gibo. Hindi ko natandaan ang campaign line ng The

Weekend News

Transformers ng tambalang Dick Gordon at Bayani Fernando ganoon din ang iba pang kandidato. At the end, kung hindi man matupad ni Noynoy ang pangakong poverty alleviation through war against graft and corruption, at least it is a comfort to know that the president-elect knows where to start. And his public pledge not to steal is a slap in the face of current administration. Not stealing does not ensure that the poor will get better, at least nakakasiguro tayo na hindi katulong sa pagpapahirap sa bansa ang ibinoto nitong Pangulo. *** Mas-magaling ang mga politikong Pinoy kaysa precinct count optical scan (PCOS) machines na inarkila ng Comelec sa Smartmatic. By the way gumastos ang Comelce ng mahigit sa P7Bilyon para sa computerization ng 2010 elections. Habang nagdududa ang mga national candidates sa resulta ng automated election dahil marami daw boto ang hindi nabilang, natiyak naman ng mga local candidate tulad ng congressman at mga mayor na nabilang na ang boto nila bago pa ipasok sa PCOS ang mga balota. Scheme: Vote buying. One month bago ang campaign period, kumumukuha ng pang-kalahatang lider sa bawat barangay ang kandidato na may allowance na P1,000 kada linggo. In return kukuha naman ng 20 lider ang chairman na binibigyan ng P500 weekly allowance bawat isa. Ang lider naman ang incharge sa pagkuha ng isang lider sa bawat pamilya na binibigyan ng P300 weekly hanggang sa huling gabi bago eleksiyon. That way, tiyak na ang boto para sa kandidato bago pa pumasok ang mga botante sa presinto.

Ang kasabihang ito ay pinapatunayan lamang ng isang mayabang na kagawad ng baranggay 308 Zone 30 Quezon Blvd. Quiapo Manila na si Gilbert Piamonte dahil sa walang tigil nitong pagmumura at pagduduro, tahasan pang nanghamon ng gulo, pinagsabihan pang gago, duwag at walang binatbat ang inyong lingkod. Lagi pang bukambibig at pagmamalaki pa nito na siya ay kagawad at marapat na siya ang masusunod sa kaniyang sinasakupang lugar.Alam kaya nitong si Gilbert ang kaniyang mga pinagsasabi at pinaggagawa? Pasado alas 7 ng gabi May 16,2010 habang naka-upo ako sa shop ng pagawaan ng relos ng aking anak bigla na lamang akong nagulat dahil nanghamon ng gulo at gumawa ng kabastusan itong si Piamonte na naka-inom pa!gawain ba ito ng isang lingkod bayan? naturingang kagawad ngunit napakagaspang ng pag-uugali! Pati ang kapwa din nito kagawad kulang din sa seminar,naki-usyoso pa at mismong sa brgy.pa

nagyabang alam na nga niyang naka-inom itong si Piamonte sinusulsulan pa at kahit saan pa umano makakarating ang kaso, kahit sa brgy.bureau pa sasamahan o susuportahan umano niya si Piamonte pinagyabang pa ng mga ito ang pangalan ni Col.Nelson Yabut, tama nga ba naman itong si intrimitidong kagawad na ito imbes na awatin mas lalo pang pinalala ang sitwasyon, kayo ba ay nakaka-intindi ng GOOD MANNERS AND RIGHT CONDUCT? O talagang mayabang lang kayo! kagawad pa lang kayo saksakan na kayo ng kayabangan? Naku kung malalaman ni Col.nelson Yabut ang panggagamit niyo sa pangalan niya siguradong may paglalagyan kayo at hindi kayo kukunsintihin sa kagaguhang pinag-gagawa ninyo dahil hindi naman siya kapares ninyong garapal!! Mabuti na lamang kagawad at naintindihan at naunawaan ko ang ibig sabihin ng magandang asal at alam ko naman ang tama at mali kaya hindi kita pinatulan at pinansin pa dahil wala ka sa katinuan at nasayaran pa ng alak ang iyong pag-iisip kung ibang tao siguro ang hinamon mo siguradong bugbog sarado ang aabutin mo. Sana maging aral sayo ito kagawad,kaya upang mahinto ka na sa panghahamon mo at maka-iwas sa gulo mas minabuti kung humingi nalang ng police assistance sa station 3,taos-puso naman akong nagpapasalamat at agad na umaksyon si SPO2 Ramon V. Tabora ang desk officer ng gabing iyon at ipinukol ora mismo sa PCP Plaza Miranda minuto lang ang nakalipas at rumesponde na agad ang 6 na kapulisan. Dahil sa may angking yabang nga itong si kagawad muli na naman nitong ipinagmamalaki at nagpapakilalang kagawad sa mga rumesponding pulis ni hindi man lang nag-

bigay ng galang at tinatawag pang “pare”. Minabuti na lamang ng kapulisan na idulog sa brgy.308 kay chairman Angelito Lopez ang mga kaganapan,samakatuwid nagharap kaming dalawa upang maayos ang gulo ngunit pareho kaming hindi magkasundo napag-desisyunan na lamang ng inyong lingkod na ipa-blotter na lang si Piamonte sa brgy. at sa station 3 at pinagplanuhan ko na ring maghain ng demanda sa husgado at Baranggay Bureau. Naku Piamonte kagawad ka pa lang ubod ka na ng yabang hindi mo kaya disiplinahin ang iyong sarili,talo mo pa ang mga kapulisan pag-umasta kana, pano pa kaya kung magiging chairman ka na ng brgy.?kung nagawa mo sa isang reporter ang pagmumura at pagduduro mas higit lalong magagawa mo ang pagpapakita ng kagaspangan ng iyong pag-uugali sa mga sibilyan o sa walang boses na mamamayan. “Kagalang-galang??” na kagawad pinakita ko lang sayo ang aking kaalaman at kabutihang asal kahit minumura mo ako at dinuduro nagawa ko pa ring magpayo sayo,sana huwag kang pamarisan,dahil bilang isang lingkod bayan kayo dapat ang modelo para sa kabutihan at bantay para sa katahimikan sa inyong sinasakupang lugar,hindi iyong taga-sulsol para sa kapahamakan. Ipinaglalaban ko lang ang aking prinsipyo na hindi kaya bayaran ng salapi na para duruin at murahin mo ako sa harap ng maraming tao o sa publiko kung makikita mo man akong naghahanapbuhay sa bangketa taas noo ko parin itong ipinagmamalaki dahil ito’y marangal at sa malinis na paraan.Ikaw Piamonte, ginagampanan mo ba ng mabuti at maayos ang iyong tungkulin bilang isang kagawad?..

Matibay si Mayor Antong Maming

N

AGBUNYI ang buong bayan ng Banga, Aklan matapos manalong landslide ang kanilang mabait na alkalde na si Mayor Antonio “Antong” Maming noong nakaraang kauna-unahang automated 2010 local and national elections. Nilampaso ng milya-milya ang kanyang dalawang kalaban sa pulitika sa pagka alkalde ng Banga, Aklan na sina Melanio Rentelio at Dr. Mercedez Imperial. Sa totoo lang kahit kailan ay hindi matatalo si Mayor Maming sa kanyang bayan sa Banga dahil sobrang napakabait at mahal na mahal ng kanyang mga constituents. Ang bata umano’y ni Governor Carlito Marquez ng administrasyon na si Rentelio ay hindi kayang talunin si Mayor Maming sa Banga. Ayon sa aking mapapagkatiwalaang source ginastusan umano ng isang pulitiko si Rentelio na kalabanin lamang si Mayor Maming pero wala rin nagawa ang una. Nanalo rin bilang isang gobernador sa lalawigan ng Aklan si Marquez pero basang sisiw di umano’y ang kanyang bata na si Rentelio sa Banga. Dagdag pa ni Mayor Maming maging sa lugar ni Gov. Marquez sa Banga, Aklan ay nanalo pa rin siya ng malayo laban kay Rentelio. Ayon sa mga tao walang ginastos na pera si Mayor Maming sa kanyang bayan dahil isang mahirap na alkalde lamang pero napakayaman sa pakikisama sa kapwa. Diyan bilib na bilib ang taongbayan kay Mayor Maming na sobrang napakabait at hindi pinababayaan ang kanyang mga constituents. Ayon sa mga tao parang ang nag laban sa Banga, Aklan ay si Gov. Marquez at Mayor Maming dahil ang dalawa ay brutal na magkaaway sa pulitika. Pero sobrang nanaig pa rin si Mayor Maming laban kay Rentelio. Inamin naman ni Mayor Maming na wala talaga siya pera para gumastos sa eleksyon pero tanging ang kanyang puhunan lamang o agimat ay pakikisama at dasal sa Poong Maykapal para manalo at tiyak hindi siya pababayaan ng kanyang mga kababayan. Biro niyo sa Banga ay mayroon 27 barangays at tatlo lamang dito

UNG ang pagbabasehan ay ang sinabi ni alyas “Robin” na diumano ay tauhan ng COMELEC, baka binili nga ni Binay na tumakbo sa pagkaBise Presidente ng halagang Php 1.4 bilyon ang natamo nitong boto nuong nakaraan halalan 2010. Na, ayon kay alyas “Robin” at Koala Bear na bansag naman ni Cong. Locsin, kaya lamang siya napilitan magsalita ay dahil hanggang sa kasalukuyan ay hindi pa naibibigay nitong si Binay ang halagang napag-usapan. Mariin naman pinabulaanan ni Binay ang akusasyon. Ayon dito, wala siyang alam sa sinasabi ni alyas “Robin”. Sa ginawang panayam ng isang TV network kay “Robin”, kanyang binanggit na inalok din nito si Senator Villar, ngunit hindi pumayag. Kanyang ibinebenta ang bawat boto sa halagang P10.00 sa lokal, P20.00 sa mga kuma-kandidatong National. Tanging si Mayor Binay daw ang tumanggap sa kanyang alok. Isang taon pa raw bago mag-eleksyon ay nag-aalok na itong alyas “Robin” sa mga politiko. Kung ganoon. . . lumalabas na kahit pala AUTOMATED na ang sistema ng eleksyon, ay hindi parin siguradong walang dayaan. Posible pa rin mangyari ang lumang sistemang dagdag at bawas. Sa simpleng opinyon ng marami, malakas ang kanilang paniniwala na may katotohanan ang ipinahayag ni alyas “Robin”. Hindi madaling talunin ang dalawang National Figuere na sina Senator Legarda at Mar Roxas.

Libacao, Aklan ay maraming krimen na nangyayari sa mga liblib na lugar pero ng maupo si Mayor Navarosa ay biglang tumahimik. Ibig sabihin katulad din si Mayor Navarosa kay Mayor Maming na mahusay mamuno ng isang bayan. Sa ngayon ang Libacao, Aklan ay maituturing na pinakamayaman na bayan sa buong Aklan dahil halos lahat ang mga tao ay mayroon trabaho. Abalang-abala ang mga tao sa pagtatanim ng abaka, mga gulay at iba’t ibang kabuhayan. Ang Libacao, Aklan ay kasing lamig din ng Baguio City at lahat dito inaangkat ang mga gulay at ibinibinta sa iba’t ibang lugar maging sa Metro Manila ang ibang bansa. Kaya dagdag pa ni Mayor Maming bawal ang tamad sa Libacao katulad din sa Banga para umunlad ang bayan. Ayon kay Mayor Maming bawat bahay ay pinupuntahan ni Mayor Navarosa upang magtrabaho ang isang tao at hindi umistambay. Kaya naman pala walang mahirap na tao sa Libacao dahil lahat kumakayod sa bundok maliban na lamang sa ibang tao na nasa ibang bansa nagbabanat ng buto para sa ikauunlad din ng kanilang kabuhayan. Hinimok nga ng mga tao si Mayor Navarosa na tumakbo bilang CONGRESSMAN sa susunod na halalan para sa ikauunlad ng buong lalawigan ng Aklan. Mahal na mahal ng buong lalawigan ng Aklan si Mayor Navarosa at tiyak susuportahan ng iba’t ibang alkalde katulad ni Mayor Maming. Kung si Mayor Maming ang magiging leader ni Mayor Navarosa para tumakbong CONGRESSMAN sa susunod na eleksyon ang huli ay tiyak mananalo. Kilala natin si Mayor Maming at Mayor Navarosa ay walang DUNGIS ang kanilang pagkatao di katulad ng ibang mga pulitiko na nai-involve sa korupsyon. Sa ngayon pa lang kahit katatapos lamang ang eleksyon ay marami na ang humihimok kay Mayor Navarosa na tumakbo bilang CONGRESSMAN ng Aklan at kalabanin si Gov. Marquez. Kung magkakataon maganda ang NAVAROSA-MARQUEZ showdown bilang kandidatong CONGRESSMAN sa lalawigan ng Aklan sa susunod pang halalan. Maaga pa ito pag-usapan antayin na lang natin ang susunod na kabanata. Pero ayon sa mga tao maganda ang track records ni Mayor Navarosa at tiyak mananalo kung sinoman ang kanyang magiging kalaban. Kaya ipinagmamalaki ng buong lalawigan ng Aklan ang pagkatao ni Mayor Navarosa katulad din ni Mayor Maming sa sobrang kabaitan sa kapwa at hindi na-involve sa anomang anomalya. Mabuhay kayo Mayor Maming at Mayor Navarosa GOD BLESS YOU ALL. nuong botohan. Napaka-imposible raw na basta maungusan ang isang Mar Roxas kung sa maayos lang ginamit ang PCOS machine. Palibhasa daw naging HUKOS PCOS kaya na-letse ang resulta. Idagdag pa ang resulta ng imbistigasyon ni Cong. Teddy “Boy” Locsin. Lalong hindi naging kapani-paniwala ang mga natamong boto nitong si Binay. Ayon kay Cong. Locsin, Chairman, Committee on Electoral Surfrage. . .tatlong presinto sa Makati City ang nakitaan nila na may kabalbalan o hindi maayos. Sa nakitang ER ni Locsin sa isang presinto, lumabas daw na hindi nagkaroon ng botohan sa tamang oras na

ay hawak ni Mayor Maming. Pero ang nakakapagtaka sa 27 barangays ay landslide ang panalo ni Mayor Maming. Dito kayo mag-isip at napakahusay ng political strategy ni Mayong Maming kung paano siya nanalo. Malungkot din isinalysay ni Mayor Maming matapos siyang suspendihin ni Gov. Marquez ng tatlong buwan simula noong Oct. 13, 2010 hangang January 13, 2010 dahil hindi niya pinirmahan ang isang building permit ng Biosmas Plant sa Banga, Aklan. Pahayag ni Mayor Maming ang nasabing proyekto ay itatayo sa lupa ni Gov. Marquez sa Banga na ang lawak ay 27 hectares. Nang hindi pumirma si Mayor Maming sa nasabing building permit ay kaagad sinuspendi ni Marquez. Noong Abril 13, 2010 ay inabsuwelto naman ng Malakanyang si Mayor Maming na nilagdaan ni Executive Secretary Alejandro Mendoza. Ibig sabihin walang kasalanan si Mayor Maming at pulitika lamang ang dahilan kung bakit siya sinuspendi ng walang kalaban-laban ni Marquez. Pero natuloy pa rin ang nasabing proyekto dahil pinirmahan ang building permit ng bise alkalde ni Mayor Maming. Ang Biomas plant ay siyang nagsu-supply ng enerhiya sa buong Aklan. Sa kasalukuyan napakaganda ngayon ng Banga, Aklan sa pamumuno ni Mayor Maming at itinuturing isang sikat na bayan sa buong bansa. Napakalinis ng Banga at disiplinado ang mga tao sa pangunguna ni Mayor Maming. Sa totoo lang walang krimen na nangyayari sa Banga at maunlad na bayan. Ayaw kasi ni Mayor Maming na magulo ang kanyang lugar at dapat pamarisan ng ibang bayan sa buong bansa. Milyun-milyong mga proyekto ang nagawa ni Mayor Maming sa kanyang lugar matapos pagandahin ang munisipyo at iba’t ibang park. Ipinatayo din ni Mayor Maming ang SB building, palengke at iba pa. Kaya ang Banga sa panahon ngayon ay isang napakagandang tanawin at maituturing na turistang lugar dahil lamang kay Mayor Antong Maming. Maging pitong taon gulang pa lamang na mga bata sa Banga, Aklan at ibang lugar ay kilalangkilala na si Mayor Maming dahil mnapakahusay bilang isang ama ng nasabing lungsod. Kung iisipin natin itong mga bata’y pagdating ng takdang panahon para sila’y bumuto ay tanda na sa kanilang mga isipan na ang iboboto ay si Mayor Maming. Kaya payo ko lang kung sino ang lalaban kay Mayor Maming sa susunod pang halalan ay huwag na kayo tumakbo at sayang lang ang inyong pagod. Taos puso din ipinagmamalaki ni Mayor Maming ang kanyang matalik na kaibigan na si Mayor Charito Navarosa matapos manalo ng walang kalaban-laban sa Libacao, Aklan noong nakaraang first automated elections. Ayon sa mga tao dati rati ang

Binay binili ang mga boto? Kilala at nanilbihan na sa buong Pilipinas ang dalawang nabanggit na senador. Kumpara kay Binay na isa lamang alkalde at ngayon pa lamang sumubok at magpapakilala sa labas ng Makati. Kunsabagay, namigay ng mga sasakyan si Binay sa ilang mga Lokal Opisyal bago pa dumating ang opisyal na pangangampanya. Na, posibleng nakatulong nuong eleksyon. Si Senador Mar Roxas ay hindi lamang may malaking pangalan sa larangan ng National politics. May abante itong 7milyon boto sa lahat ng kanyang katunggali sa pagka-bise presidente dahil dinala ito ng religion Iglesia ni Kristo

itinakda ng COMELEC. Lumabas na nagsimula ang botohan ay alas-diyes pasado na ng gabi, bagay na wala naman eleksyon ng ganoon oras. Sa imbistigasyon pa, lumabas na ang Hokus Pcos daw sa Makati ay nakapag-send agad ng resulta bago pa makapagreport ang iba, bagay na pinaghihinalaan dun ginawa ang pagpapalusot ng boto. Habang hindi pa natatapos ang canvassing ng Kongreso, sana lumabas ang tunay na katotohanan sa pagitan nina Sen. Roxas at Mayor Jojo Binay. Manaiig sana ang tunay na kagustuhan ng tao sa mananalong Bise Presidente.

How about you Ma’am Marie, accounting chief, watch your back pls. Nagbuhay-reyna ang numero unong actress (si Olive) na ito, Mr.Ed, di lamang sa pagkakamal ng sandamukal na kwarta, kundi maging ng luho, kasama na rito ang magagarang sasakyan gamit niya sa araw-araw. Nakaspecial (car) plate pa ang ale, na kung titingnan, daig pa ni Olive ang mga USEC at ASSEC diyan sa main office. Si Noel naman, Mr.Ed, ay kasangga ni Olive at dati siyang bagman ni dating Director Cuenca.Sinasabi pa na itong si Noel ay super DI, este mali, super alalay pala ngayon ni Madam Doña Olive.

OLIVE & NOEL NAGYAYABANG NA “SUPER TYPHOON” DAW SILA SA DPWH

C

ELLPHONE text ito, dear readers, ng isa nating masugid na tagasubaybay. Bale may “inside info”siya kina Olive at Noel. Si Olive ay diumano’y “Liaison Officer” ng DPWH-Region III; si Noel nama’y staffer ng IAS o Internal Audit Service. Kapwa daw maituturing na “bagyo, as in “Super Typhoon” ang dalawang ito. Hayaan natin na ang impormante ng pitak na ito ang maglahad sa inyo ng kanyang nalalaman at saloobin, to wit: Nababasa ko article niyo at hanga ako sa malasakit nyo at sa mga komento nyo dito sa DPWH. Kumbaga, additional information lang ito. Pwede niyo naman beripikahin kung gusto nyo. Si Olive ay parang kamelyon na di mo alam kung anong papel meron siya sa DPWH. Ang sabi, Liason Officer daw siya ng DPWH Region III, ngunit sa central office nagre-report. Sir Ed, si Olive po ay hindi na nagre-report sa kanyang mother unit sa DPWH R-3. Ang opisyo ng Ale dito sa Main office ay “gapangin” lahat ng pagkakaperahan, as in sinolo niya lahat ng grasya, magmula sa Budget at Accounting ay kanya na itong pinakikialaman. How’s that again Dir. Apen (of Budget Office)? Dehins ba abot ng radar mo ito sir?

Samantala ang Noel na yan ay tao ni IAS Dir. Ardeliza Medenilla. Pero ang balita sa taong ito ay hindi na rin siya nagpapakita kay Dir. Medenilla. Kasi nama’y wala siyang nahaharbat sa IAS, kaya ang siste, nagaplay siya bilang sakristan ni Olive, at laging nakabuntot ang naturang mama, saan mang lupalop may pupuntahan ang kanyang amo. Nakaliyad pa kamo ang mga palad ni Noel kapag may kliyente nang bibiktimahin, este aayusin, pala ang collections para makuha ng dalawa ang kanilang komisyon. Kumbaga, aayusin sabay tatagain sa tongpats ang naturang “subject.” champion di po ba? Isa umano sa kinubabaw ng buwenas ay etong si Noel kupal, ang dating naglalakad (as in nagkocommute), naka-tsinelas lang kapag pumapasok sa opisina, at kumakain sa turo-turo. Ngayon, ibang Noel na ang “aura” niya, naka-CRV (car) na siya, at sa Korean at Japanese restaurant lang naman kung mananghalian ang kumag— & all at the expense of taxpayers’ money. Pls don’t publish my # kasi’y kilala po nila ako. Ganito ang kadalasang tanong ng mga nakakakilala kina Olive at Noel. Sila na lang ba na labas-masok sa OSEC (Office of the Secretary) ang maituturing na mga “anak ng Dios?” Sila na lang ba ang dapat na makinabang, o pati yaong mga director na kanilang

A Salute to Bgy. Capt. Meng de Quiros

I

SA po tayo sa humah anga sa katatagan ng butihing Barangay Captain ng Mambog 3, Bacoor, Cavite na si Meng de Quiros. Sa kabila ng mga kabutihan ginawa nito sa ilalim ng kanyang panunungkulan sa barangay, nagtataka lamang tayo kung bakit pilit umano siyang hinihila pababa ng kanyang mga barangay kagawad. Ang inyo pong lingkod ay nanunuluyan sa Citta Italia, Bacoor Cavite, (nang halos limang taon na po hanggang sa kasalukuyan) at nasasakupan po ito ng butihing Kapitan. Nakakalungkot lamang isipin na binabalewala ang kanyang mga magagandang ginagawa para sa barangay dahil may mga naririnig tayong pagbabatikos sa kanya at mismong mga kagawad pa nito ay sumasalungat. Ang masaklap pa nito, ang gusto umanong mangyari ng kanyang mga kagawad ay sila ang

masusunod at ang kanilang kapitan naman ng magiging sunud-sunuran na lamang, aba’y bakit hindi sila tumakbo na lamang na Kapitan noong panahon ng eleksiyon para sila ang magiging Punong Barangay? Ayon pa nga sa isa nating kaibigan na Punong Barangay na halos kalapit lamang din ng aming barangay, ay labis siyang naaawa kay Kap. De Quiros dahil sa hindi umanong magandang ginagawa ng mga kagawad nito sa kanya. Sa totoo lamang kahit saan anggulong tignan wala man lamang tayong makitang hindi magandang ginawa itong Kapitan na ito? Mali ba yung, sundin ang tamang batas? Mali ba ang umayaw ka sa baluktot na pananaw at paniniwala? Mali ba ang ayaw mong sumama sa mga kawalanghiyaan? Mali ba ang magpatayo ka ng outpost o isang tanggapan ng barangay sa Citta Italia

pinagsisilbihan? Isa po yan sa maraming tanong na nais naming maiparating dito sa pitak niyo na INVESTIGATIVE FILES, at sa inyong tagasubaybay. Tanong ng pitak na ito: Ano ba talaga ang kalakaran ngayon sa DPWH? Palakasan system na ba? Sa susunod na labas ng pitak na ito, hindi na po tayo tatanggap ng anumang text messages unless kung ibibigay ninyo ang inyong pagkakakilanlan.Yun lang po at maraming salamat sa inyong pagtangkilik. *** SINO naman etong sekretarya ng DPWH na pasok sa pinilakang tabing dahil patok ang kanyang act of lasciviousness, este mali, acting pala, kaya humakot ng katakut-takot na swerte sa kanyang career, simula ng mapasok diumano bilang sekretarya ng mga director. Nagsimula ang kanyang romantic love affair during the time of the late Dir. dela Fuente. Ang “mahinhin” at mabait na sekretaryang ito ay karinyosa pala sa kanyang mga naging director sa pelikula, ay mali naman, sa DPWH pala, lalo na kapag silang dalawa na lang ng amo niya sa opis. Naku ha, totoo ba ito? Ratsada ng tunay na Pilipino? Clue….ang sekretarya na binabanggit sa itaas na romampa ay mali, mahilig pala sa romansa, at tunay naman pong nabibighani ang puso ng kanyang mga amo ay si….Kapag masipag kayong mag-analisa, sa tabi-tabi lang yan,www. yahoo.mais con yelo.sobrang mainit sa Metro Manila! *** PARTINGSHOT...Nais ko munang batiin ang aking mga kaibigan sa pangunguna ni PM II Ceasar “CD” Darantinao, PM George Alberto, PM Alex Bote at PJHL PD Maximo “Imo” Carvajal, nangungumusta lang po ang Investigative Files.Tutal napag-uusapan na rin lang ang pagbati...Mention na rin ng pitak na ito ang isa sa pinakamagaling at matalinong Project Manager ng PMO, si PM II ANDY SOSA, at URPO Project Director TOYET CASTILLO, Region 8 ARD JOJO SUAN at CAR ARD ALEX CASTAÑEDA. Sila yaong mga opisyales ng DPWH na tunay na maasahan sa darating pang henerasyon. na mas nakakatulong sa nakakarami? Sapagkat ang main na tanggapan ng Mambog 3 ay sobrang layo para sa mga walang sasakyan na residente ng nasabing barangay. Balita pa natin, ay may mga death treat pa atang natatanggap ang Kapitan na ito, subalit nananatili pa rin siyang matatag at naninindigan. Kaya para sayo Kap. Saludo ako sa inyo! At salamat for a job well done! Lalo na sa peace and order ng barangay. *** Congratulations kay Ate Lani Mercado-Revilla, na nanalong Kinatawan sa ikalawang distrito ng Bacoor, re-elect Bacoor Mayor Strike Revilla, elect Imus Mayor Homer Saquilayan re-elect Imus Vice Mayor Mandy Ilano, Cavite Governor Juanito Victor “JV” Remulla Jr.,. Sana ay makapasok na rin sa cityhood ang Bacoor, at maging Bacoor City na ang bayang ito. Kung tutuusin, malayo na ang narating ng Bayan ng Bacoor, paangat ng paangat ang ekonomiya rito at marami na rin ang mga naglipatang manirahan sa bayan.

Congratulations sa magkapatid na Calixto I

SANG magandang tam balan ito sa lungsod ng Pasay, ang pagka-panalo ng magkapatid na Calixto at kapwa kasalukuyang opisyal ng lungsod sina Vice-Mayor Tony Calixto ay nahalal bilang mayor ng lungsod sa katatapos may May 10, election habang si 2 nd district Councilor Emi Calixto Rubiano naman ay nanalong lone district congresswoman. Kaya kino-congratulate natin ang tagumpay na natamo ng magkapatid dahil nanalo sila sa kauna-unahang Automated Counting machine sa bansa. Maliwanag na sa isang malinis at maayos na paraan nakuha nila ang kanilang tagumpay at sila na rin ang itinadhana ng mamamayan ng Pasay na mamuno para mabago naman ang takbo ng kanilang pamumuhay. At magiging madali lamang ito para kay ViceMayor Calixto dahil maliban sa nagiging alkalde na rin ang kanyang ama at maaring ipatutupad nito o di man ay ipagpapatuloy ang ilang mga bagay na magagandang nagawa ng kanyang ama na si former mayor Eduard Martin Calixto noong ito’y panahon ng kanyang panunungkulan, dahil makaalalay pa nito ang kanyang kapatid na

siyang nanalo bilang lady solon ng lungsod. Alam ko na hindi bibiguin ni Calixto ang kanyang mga constituent at ibibigay nito ang serbisyo-publiko na laan para sa mamamayan ng Pasay. Halos nasubaybayan na rin natin ang pagiging lingkod-bayan ng butihing alkalde sa 14 na taon nating pamamalagi rito sa lungsod. Ang taong na siyang magiging alkalde na ng Pasay sa darating na Hulyo 1, ay hindi kayang sulsulan ninoman o magpagamit sa sinoman ma-impluwensiyang tao. Hindi nito, kayang ibenta ang dangal at ipahamak ang kanyang mga kababayan para lamang sa interes ng ibang tao. Siya ang taong ma-prinisipyo at may paninindigan, kung saan ang tama ay duon siya at kapag alam niyang mali, kailanman ay hindi mo ito kayang sulsulan para lamang kumampi sa mali, yan si mayor Calixto. Matuwid ang pananaw para sa lungsod at hindi baluktot. At dahil na rin sa kanyang prinisipyo at pagkampi sa tama ay minsan na rin siyang napahamak, subalit hindi nito pinagsisihan ang kanyang ginawa, sapagkat, napahamak man siya, hin-

di dahil sa may mali siyang ginawa kundi ang hindi niya pagkampi sa mga maling gawain. Hindi na rin nakapagtataka kung bakit maraming naglalabasan hindi magandang balita sa pagka-panalo ng magkapatid. Dahil sa tuwing matatapos ang halalan, hindi matanggap ng ilang natalo ang pagkabigo kung kaya’t kung ano anu na lamang na mga paninira ang ginagawa. Muli, Congrats Mayor Calixto!!!

Congrats Shane Gonzales and Eddie Ballesteros

S

ANA isantabi muna ang pulitika ngayon bagkus ay magkaisa na lang tayo para sa ikakaunlad ng ating bayan. Pangalan ng Pilipinas ang dinadala natin kaya dapat bigyan natin ng halaga ito. Congratulations pala sa lahat ng nanalo sa halalan at sa mga natalo better luck next time. Napakaganda ng automated poll machine, mabuhay ang COMELEC, mabuhay ang sambayanang Pilipino for the job well done. Isa lang ang gusto ng taong bayan, they want change, that’s clear message. I hope President Noynoy will prosper, please help and support him. *** Hindi rin matatawaran ang magandang performance ang Son-in-Law ni Comm. Nonoy Libanan dahil akalain niyo landslide ang panalo niya sa Eastern Samar, nanalo siya bilang batang-bata na Vice Governor at doon din nagumpisa si Comm. Nonoy na vice Governor din dati. Siguro iisa ang dahilan nito kaya nanalo si Christoper Shane Gonzales ay namana niya ang magandang leadership at magandang performance ni Comm. Nonoy noong siya’y nasa pulitika pa lamang. At siyempre isa na dito yung kanyang magandang pagkatao. Dinala niya ang magandang record ni Comm. Libanan noong nasa pulitika pa ito. Isa lang ang pahiwatig nito the people of Samar loves Nonoy Libanan and they respect him. Kaya si Christoper Shane Gonzales naman ay nangako na gagampanan niya ang kanyang tungkulin kasama ang kanyang maybahay na si Eloisa Libanan. Sila ay handang maglingkod ng tapat sa tao at sa bayan. Kaya ito lang ang naging aral sa halalan dapat walang siraan and whoever wins dapat talaga tanggapin natin at tandaan natin ito lahat ng kapangyarihan ay may katapusan. Kaya nakita kung paano manilbihan sa Comm. Libanan. Nag-

umpisa yan kila President Fidel Ramos, President Erap at President Cory Aquino. Pero hindi niyo ba alam ang ginawang sikreto ni Comm. Libanan whoever the boss? He always followed the chain of command. Kagaya noong si Madam Cory ang pangulo siya ang sumalubong sa Eastern Samar. Ganun kasi ang ugali niya noon non partisan siya. Kaya puro trabaho ang ginagawa niya kaya Masaya si Madam Cory sa kanya. Kaya dapat ganyan ang gawin natin magtrabaho pero kung sino ang president susuportahan natin. Kaya naging matagumpay ang political career niya dahil survivor siya at lahat ng hirap at pagsubok na dinaanan niya sa buhay ay nalagpasan niya kaya naging matagumpay siya. Sekreto niya perseverance and hard work at dedication sa trabaho. Kaya ito lang ang masasabi ko kay Shane, Congrats. Mabuhay ang Libanan at Gonzales. God bless us all, to God be the glory! *** Isa pang magaling na Mayor elect ng Aguilar, Pangasinan ay itong si Engr. Eddie Ballesteros. Kanyang tinalo ang political dynasty ni Mayor Ano Evangelista. Matagal ding naghari ang mga ito sa maliit na bayan sa Pangasinan na may 30,000 registered voter. Lumamang siya ng 300 votes at sinuportahan niya ang kandidatura ni Noynoy at Governor Amado Espino at Congressman Leopoldo Bataoil. Kaya marami din siyang plano sa kanyang kababayan. Naubos ang kaban ng Aguilar na dapat para sa mahirap pero pinaboran ni Evangelista ang mga kamag-anak incorporated. Maraming gustong gawin si Mayor Eddie Ballesteros sa Aguilar, mapapaayos niya ang sirang mga tulay at mga kalsada upang hindi mahirapan ang mga taga baryo na magdala ng kanilang mga kalakal sa bayan. Noong una po ay ang kanyang yumaong asawa na si Mayor Emma Salgado-Ballesteros ang nagumpisa at naging progresibo ang Aguilar Pangasinan pero naging corrupt ang pumalit kay Mayor Emma Ballesteros kaya nabankrupt ang kaban ng Aguilar. Pero sa ngayon ay tuloy na ang kaunlaran sa Aguilar, Pangasinan at nangako si Mayor Eddie Ballesteros na kung ano ang naumpisahan ng kanyang maybahay ay kanyang itutuloy, kasama ang kanyang mga anak na si Kristine at Kristal Salgado Bal-

lesteros at ang kanyang mother-in-law na si Lola Luz Salgado. Kaya ito nagsisikap na ibangon muli ni Mayor Ballesteros ang nawalang tiwala ng taga Aguilar, Pangasinan sa dating alkalde. God fearing itong si Mayor Ballesteros at napakaganda ang plano niya para sa pag-unlad ng Aguilar at maglilingkod siya ng tapat sa tao. Kaya naman marami ang nagmamahal kay Mayor Eddie ay dahil na rin sa ito’y makatao, maka-Diyos at makabayan. Mabuhay ka Mayor Eddie Ballesteros at Mabuhay ang mga taga Aguilar! Congratulations Bayaw and God bless you and to your family! Give thanks to the Holy One. *** Tama lang ang naging panukala at naging desisyon ni Senate Majority Floor Leader Migz Zubiri na si Franklin Drilon ang maging Senate President ng Senado ng Liberal Party. Pero sabi rin niya Pwede rin si Sen. Manny Villar dahil Majority sila pero kung hindi magbabago ang ibang Senador at parehas naman na maganda ang mga track record ni Drilon at Enrile. Watch and see na lang dahil lamang pa rin ang kampo ni Villar pero sa nakikita ko maraming babaliktad na Senadors dahil kay President Noynoy at siyempre alam niyo naman kung sino ang nakaupo at lamang din sila, alam niyo na ang ibig kong sabihin. Kaya ang magaling talaga ang mga suggestion ni Senate Majority Leader Migz Zubiri. Ganyan si Migz Zubiri kung sino ang makakatulong sa bayan ay doon siya. God bless Senator Migz! Keep up the good work! *** Bakit walang nanalong magdalo soldier? Isa lang ang ibig sabihin nito. Guess as good as mine? Congratulations sa Philippine Coast Guard sa pamumuno ni Admiral Wilfredo Tamayo sa magandang performance nila sa nakaraang halalan. God bless Philippine National Police at Armed Forces of the Philippines for the Job well done! Mabuhay kayong lahat! *** Nakakasuka yung mga pulitiko at yumaman sa Administrasyong Arroyo. Sila ay nagbaliktaran, nakakahiya ang ginawa niyo! Dapat ang gawin ni President Noynoy Huwag niyang pansinin ang bulong brigade na parang mga linta!

Nograles allays Noynoy’s fear of ‘power vacuum’

Speaker Prospero Nograles THE Philippines will have a new president by June 30, the day President Gloria MacapagalArroyo steps down from office, House Speaker Prospero Nograles assured recently. Nograles gave the assurance after Sen. Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III chided him for his supposed plan to delay the proclamation of new president and vicepresident until June 30, which Aquino, the immi-

nent winner in the presidential race, said could create a “power vacuum” that could lead to public anxiety. Nograles, in a statement, said Aquino has been “misinformed” and clarified that he was only citing the constitutional provision that states that June 30 is the “ultimate deadline” for proclaiming the country’s top two leaders. “I would be the last person who would even try to imagine a vacuum of power in government,” he said. He said there would be no delays in the proclamation “so long as all the canvass votes and documents needed for an authentic and duly-executed COC [certificate of canvass] are present.” The Congress is set to convene on Tuesday as the national board of canvassers (NBOC) that will officially tally COCs for president and vice-president.

DepEd Tech-Voc continues to produce nationally-certified graduates THE Department of Education’s strengthened technical vocational (tech-voc) curriculum continues to produce a new generation of highskilled workforce as it has generated a total of 1,751 holders of competency certificate after hurdling various skills tests administered by a national certifying body. “With the kind of training and preparation we are providing our students, we anticipate an increase in the number of tech-voc graduates who pass the highlycompetitive skills test of Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA),” said Education Secretary Mona Valisno. Under the Strengthened Technical-Vocational Education Program (STVEP), DepEd supervises a total of 282 tech-voc high schools where stu-

Josephine Gail Porter of UP Diliman topped the elementary education exam with a score of 88.20 percent. Tied at second place were Rageene Vera Dueñas, also from UP Diliman, and Englevert Reyes of the University of San Jose Recoletos with 87.40 percent. For secondary education, De La Salle University-Manila’s Clarence Gatchalian got the highest score 91.20, followed by Jerome Macapagal of Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Marikina with 89.80. Tied at the third spot were Melane Manalo of UP Diliman and Ma. Adeinev Reyes of Ateneo de Manila University in Quezon City with 89.60. The full list of results of secondary education can be viewed here while results for the elementary education can be seen here. Meanwhile, results for eight examinees were withheld pending final determination of their liabilities under the examination’s rules and regulations, the PRC added.

Presidential spokesman blows top over poll fraud question AFTER refusing to answer a question on a new accusation of cheating in the May 10 polls, Malacañang’s chief spokesman lashed out at media recently saying that the question should be thrown to the one making the allegation. Presidential spokesman Ricardo Saludo told media to throw back to Makati Rep. Teodoro Locsin Jr. his claim that the Palace was behind a socalled whistleblower on poll fraud.

More than 11,000 pass licensure exams for teachers BASED on the results released recently by the Professional Regulation Commission, 4,835 or just 15.44 percent of the 31,306 examinees passed the LET for elementary education, while 6,483 out of the 27,802 examinees or 23.32 percent passed for secondary education. Only 4 out of the 109 examinees who were graduates of the Accelerated Teacher Education Program likewise passed the exam. The LET was given on April 18 in 13 testing centers across the Philippines and in Hong Kong, the PRC said. Western Visayas State University has the highest passing rate for LET for elementary education, with 71 passers out of its 84 examinees or 85 percent. For secondary education, the University of the Philippines in Diliman posted a 100 percent passing rate, followed by the University of Santo Tomas with 89 percent.

Section 18 of R.A. 7836, known as the Philippine Teachers Professionalization Act of 1994, states, “Every registrant shall be required to take his professional oath before practicing as a professional teacher.” Mass oath taking for the LET passers will be held based on the regional testing centers, and the dates and venues can be found on the PRC website. Oath taking tickets are available at the Office of Professional Teachers, 3rd Floor, PRC Annex Building for NCR and Region IV passers starting May 26, and at the PRC regional offices for the passers from the other regions, according to the PRC release. It added the requirements for the issuance of Certificate of Registration and Professional Identification Card (ID) are the following: • a duly accomplished Oath Form • latest Community Tax Certificate (Cedula) • one 1" x 1" picture (colored with white background and complete name tag) • two 2" x 2" pictures (colored with white background and complete name tag) • metered documentary stamp for the Oath Form • initial registration fee of P600 • annual registration fee of P450 for 2010-2013 Successful examinees should likewise personally register and sign in the Roster of Registered Professionals, the PRC said.

“Why are you asking me that, he was the one who said it? Bakit hindi siya patanungin nang maayos (Why are you asking me that, when it was Locsin who said it? Why not ask him)?” Saludo said. Locsin recently claimed a Malacañang “insider” was behind the so-called poll fraud whistleblower, who has been dubbed “Koala Boy” in the media. The koala-masked man claimed massive fraud occurred during the May 10 polls. For his part, deputy presidential spokesman Gary Olivar recently called Locsin’s claim “unsubstantiated and illogical.” But Saludo, when asked Saturday about what Locsin’s motives could be, blew his top. “Well don’t ask us, ask Congressman Locsin,” he said. He said he would not answer the question because it would be dignifying a baseless claim. “Your editors should tell whoever did that reporting they should ask Congressman Locsin,” he added. Saludo even said media should throw back questions at the accuser, saying the media would have asked Malacañang for

proof if it made accusations against anyone. “Why cant your reporters covering Congress do the same thing?” he said. Saludo eventually apologized to the anchors after the interview. “Pasensya nagkainitan ang usapan natin (I am sorry the discussion became heated),” he said. But at least one reporter covering the Palace beat twitted Saludo for his outburst, saying it gave a bad example. “Pag ganyan ang sagot ninyo medyo naiilang kami. Pinagmalaki ninyo kayo journalist, saan mundo kayo nanggaling, sana ang tanong sagutin ninyo. Kung di masagot huwag ninyo sagutin, huwag ninyo ituro kung saan lang (If you answer questions like that we feel uncomfortable. You called yourself a journalist but please answer the question. If you don’t want to, then don’t answer it, but don’t lecture us like that),” said Leo Palo III. “Nakakaloko sa part naming kami sinisisi ninyo kung ano lumalabas sa dyaryo sa TV at radio.

4,000 tech-voc graduating students nationwide that have yet to complete this school year’s TESDA-administered skills assessment. Expectations are high that a significant number will pass TESDA’s skills test this year. “We know that we have achieved a level of success in this program because we’ve been having 95 to 100 percent passing rate in our competency assessments,” Valisno added. DepEd continues to raise the quality of the tech-voc program through the provision of competency-based curriculum, teachers’ training, acquisition of physical facilities, development of instructional materials, provision of manpower requirement, and other logistics support. Techvoc high schools are distributed all over the country, and their specialization depends on what is suitable in particular regions, whether fishery, agriculture, or arts and trade. Despite initial good results, DepEd wants to thoroughly evaluate the program for which Memorandum No. 11 was issued. This is specifically to assess the efficiency of the use of a P461 million fund allocated for these schools’ acquisition of new tools and equipment (P410 million) and competency assessment subsidy (P51.05 million). like being blamed by you for everything that comes out in the papers, television and radio. If you can be like a diesel engine, at least calibrate what you say before saying it),” he added. Saludo was recycled as deputy presidential spokesman and eventually presidential spokesman earlier this year, after the death of Press Secretary Cerge Remonde last January. He was brought back to the Palace after the Commission on Appointments rejected his appointment as Civil Service Commission chairman.

Sen. Bong Revilla holds the record as senator with highest votes in Phil. election SENATOR Ramon Bong Revilla Jr. now holds the record as the national candidate having the highest votes garnered in any Philippine election. As of the latest official canvass of the Commission on Elections, Bong Revilla got 19,414,795 votes. Senator Mar Roxas used to hold the record with 19,372,888 votes when he ran for senator in 2004 election. Bong Revilla finished second in the same race. The re-elected senator expressed elation on the overwhelming support of the people. “I am so honored when I learned that more than 19 million people cast their votes on me. I do not see it as just figures that ensure me for another

Sen. Bong Revilla term in the Senate. I see these votes as number of Filipinos who have entrusted their future in us, a number of people whom I will be accountable for if I fail, but, nevertheless, a number of people who will also extend their hand in building a better Philip-

pines,” Bong Revilla said in an interview. The senator, whose bills and laws he filed during the 13th and 14th Congress can be summed up to direct service to people, improving the lives and enhanced the livelihood of the people, vowed to formulate more laws that will equip people to accelerate development. Earlier, Bong Revilla expressed his willingness to support the administration of President-apparent Senator Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III. He also appealed to his colleagues in the Senate to strive for harmony, stop bickering and set aside opposition-administration distinctions in order to set example to the people and encourage unity and healing.

Sir Butch!

We wish you all the best in life! Sana po ‘wag kayong magbabago at magsawa sa pagbibigay ng tulong sa mga Pasayeños, kailangan po nila kayo lalo na iyong mga indigents resident sa lungsod ng Pasay. Muli Maligayang Pagbati sa araw ng inyong kapanganakan (May 23, 2010). Greetings from : The Management and Staff of People’s Brigada News

Elect lady solon ng Pasay…

Ang pagiging isang Konsehala ni Emi Calixto-Rubiano MULI na naman susubukan ng kanyang mga constituent ang kakayahan ni 2nd district Pasay City Councilor Imelda “Emi” Calixto-Rubiano, nang ihalal ito bilang kanilang Kinatawan ng lungsod sa Mababang Kapulungan. Si Coun. Calixto-Rubiano, ay inihalal bilang number 1 sa konseho ng mga mamamayan ng Pasay taong 1998 ng simulan nito ang kanyang karera sa politika ay angat kaagad ang ratings nito sa mga Pasayeños. Hindi marahil nagustuhan si Calixto-Rubiano ng kanyang mga kababayan dahil sa nakatatak ang pangalan sa pangalan nito ang kanilang ama na dati na dating alkalde na si former Pasay City Mayor Eduardo “Duay” Calixto, kundi ang pagiging isang Calixto-Rubiano na sensiro bilang isang public-servant. At bilang isang konsehal, marami na rin siyang mga nagawang proyekto, gaya na lamang ng libreng serbisyong medical at dental, murang serbisyo sa namatay, Operation cataract, Botika Binhi, Operation Smile, Feeding program, Livelihood and Capital assistance, Scholarship grant para sa mga estudyanteng kwalipikado at iba’tibang proyektong pangimprastraktura. Dati rin pinamunuan ng butihing konsehala

Trabaho, uunahin ni elect Cong. Olivarez

Kon. Emi CalixtoRubiano ang Pasay City Social Welfare Department na kung saan sa ilalim ng kanyang pamumuno ay tumanggap uto ng maraming parangal at awards dahil sa pagtugon at pag-alalay sa mga residente ng nasabing lungsod. Naging prayoridad rin nito ang Kalusugan ng bawat isang mamamayan ng Pasay na kung saan ay sinisiguro ang kalinisan gaya na lamang sa Pasay City Public Market, ang

mga karne ng baboy, manok, at baka ay sinisigurong malinis ito at ligtas sa anumang sakit at marami pang iba. Nagpasa rin ng isang resolusyong ang nasabing Konsehala na naglalayong panatiliin ang City Engineering Office na malinis ang mga daluyan ng tubig o mga drainage system sa panahon ng tag-int bilang paghahanda sa tagulan, lalo na sa mga pangunahing pamilihan sa lungsod. At pagtatatag ng Pasay City Business Council upang umagapay sa pag-unlad ng mga negosyo sa lungsod at para mapadali ang proseso o mga transaksiyon sa loob ng city hall. Ilan lamang yan sa mga nagawa ni Kon. CalixtoRubiano, at lalo pang hihigitan nito ang kanyang pagbibigay serbisyo sa mga Pasayeños, dahil siya na ang uupong Kinatawan ng lungsod sa darating na Hulyo 1 at makakaaasa rito ang mga taga-lungsod. (M. Pineda)

SA muling pagbabalik ng Olivarez bilang publicservant sa lungsod, hindi bibiguin ng bagong halal na Kongresista na si Edwin Olivarez ang kanyang mga kababayan sa unang distrito at ibabalik nito ang pagseserbisyong ginawa ng kanyang ama na si Dr. Pablo Olivarez na dating alkalde ng lungsod. Ayon kay Kuya Edwin Olivarez, sa darating na Hulyo 1, unang araw nito sa tanggapan ng House of the Representative bilang Kinatawan sa unang distrito ng lungsod, magsusulong ito ng batas na makakatulong sa kanyang mga kababayan lalo na sa hanapbuhay at pagbibigay ng trabaho. Maglalaan rin ng pondo ang nasabing mambabatas para sa Libreng Edukasyon, na ang higit na makikinabang rito ay ang mga out-of-school youth o ang mga kabataan na walang kakayahan makapagaral sa elementarya, sekondarya at kolehiyo. Alam ni Kuya Edwin na noong panahon na na-

LIBELO dito, libelo doon! Ito ang pangunahing puwersa ng bumabangga ngayon sa hanay ng mga walang kinatatakutan at kinikilingang mamamahayag sa Pilipinas. Sa pagnanais na maipahatid sa madla ang katotohanan sa likod ng bawat balita, ng bawat kabuktutang nagaganap sa gobyerno at pribadong sector, kasong libelo ang pangunah-

ing kasangkapan ng mga nauupakan upang ang katotohanan ay mahadlangan. May mga pagkakataon na di lamang sa paraan ng libelo napupunta ang labanan. Sa katunayan, marami na rin sa aming hanay ang nagbuwis ng buhay alang-alang sa katotohanan. Ngunit hindi ito naging hadlang upang ang pinaka-

mamahal na propesyon ay tuluyan ng lisanin. Bagkus ay lalo pang nag-aapoy ang aming mga damdamin upang tirisin ang mga idolo na tiwaling gawain. Ang gawaing ito ay bahagi ng aming karapatan, hindi lamang bilang mamahayag, kundi bilang mamamayan sa ilalim ng Saligang Batas. Patuloy din ang aming panawagan para sa de-

nungkulan ito sa lalawigan ng Laguna bilang isang Board Member at Vice Governor ay naglilingkod rin ng kanyang ama sa kanyang mga kababayan sa Parañaque. At dahil mas ninais na ng kanyang ama na tumulong na lamang sa mga Parañaqueños na walang katungkulan ay minabuti na rin ni Kuya Edwin na sundin ang yapak ng ama at ipagpatuloy ang mga nasimulan gawain nito para sa mga taga-

Parañaque. Ginagawa ito ni Kuya Edwin hindi dahil isa siyang mabait at masunuring anak, kundi mahal niya ang kanyang kababayan sa Parañaque at ang tanging hangad lamang niya ay ang makatulong at makapagbigay ng serbisyong totoo sa Diyos at sa tao. Aniya, alam niyang (Cong. Olivarez) kayangkaya niya na tapusin ang kahirapan at solusyunan ang bawat hinaing ng mga taga-unang distrito lalo na’t nariyan ang kanyang kapatid na konsehal na si Erick na siyang kanyang katuwang sa pagresolba sa lahat ng suliranin. Kaya naman paulitulit na nagpapasalamat si 1st dist. Cong. Olivarez sa kanyang mga constituent sa tiwalang ibinigay sa kanya at makakaasa rin sila na ang tiwalang ibinigay sa kanya ay papalitan niya ito ng pagbibigay ng serbisyong totoo.(M.P.)

Governments and climate research

D

ETROIT, Michigan – Resting here at a Filipino friend’s house after the conference that I attended in Chicago ended two days ago. It was the 4th International Conference on Climate Change (4th ICCC) sponsored by the Heartland Institute, h t t p : / / w w w . heartland.org/events/ 2010Chicago/ program.html. Our think tank, Minimal Government Thinkers, Inc. (www.mini malgovern ment.net) is the only Philippine-based institute that was one of many co-sponsors of the event. I was given a travel scholarship by Heartland to attend the 3-days conference, and out of the 700+ people who registered and attended that big conference, I was the only one from the Philippines and from south-east Asia. Most of the participants there were scientists – physicists, geologists, meteorologists, climatologists, biologists, geophysicists, even former astronauts. Breakfast and lunch have two speakers each, then there were four simul-

Friday - Saturday, May 28 - 29, 2010

taneous tracks or panel discussions to choose, two on science and one each on economics and public policy. Being a non-scientist and very much interested in the scientific debate about “man-made warming”, I attended mostly the science tracks. My brief article discussing briefly the tracks or panels that I attended on day 2 of the conference, entitled “Sea level, the Sun and climate”, can be found at my blog, http://funwithgovernment. blogspot.com or at h t t p : / / www.thelobbyist.biz/per-

spectives/columns/ back_to_personal_ responsibility/853.html. On the third and last day of the conference, I attended the last 2 science tracks. On the first track, the four speakers were: Tom Segalstad of the University of Oslo, Norway; George Kukla of the Lamont-Dohery Earth Observatory at Columbia University, USA; Madhav Khandekar of Environment Canada; and Leighton Steward of the Institute for the Study of Earth and Man at Southern Methodist University, USA. Dr. Sevalstad had an interesting paper, “Geochemistry of Carbon Dioxide: The whereabouts of carbon dioxide (CO2) on Earth”, and he explained that CO2 follows certain cycles, like day-night, wet-dry, El Nino-La Nina cycles, and stay just a few days or months or few years, depending on where they are deposited (upper atmosphere, lower troposphere, land surface, ocean, plants and trees, etc.) and not “several hundred years” as propagated by the UN In-

tergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). Dr. Kukla’s paper was entitled “Interglacials start with global cooling and end with global warming.” He looked at the “obliquity” or the angle of the earth on the Sun’s equator. He said that based on the angular position of the Earth through the recent years, global warming, especially in the tropics, will continue, and that humanity’s carbon mission has nothing to do with this climate cycle of cooling-warming. Dr. Steward’s paper was on “Empirical evidence (Paleoclimates) and the disconnect of climate change” and he showed that CO2 is a useful gas and food plant, that without CO2 there will be no plants, crops and trees on the planet and life will not be possible. And that based on plenty of scientific studies, more CO2 actually results in more and faster plant growth, bigger harvest of crops. The other science track that I attended had three speakers: William Kinonmonth of the Australasian

Climate Research Institute in Australia; Victor Velasco Herrara of the Institute of Geophysics at the National Autonomous University of Mexico; and Ian Palmer of the University of Adelaide, Australia. Prof. Kininmonth presented a paper on “Natural responses limiting anthropogenic climate forcing” and argued that manmade carbon emission cannot be a big factor in affecting the Earth’s climate. Dr. Herrara, a young physicist in Mexico, presented an interesting paper, “The new solar minimum and the mini-ice age of the twenty-first century”. He showed solar activity and inactivity via solar cycles and geomagnetic field index, and predicted a prolonged global cooling from 2010 to 2070. In the previous day’s presentation, a geologist from the Western Washington University, USA, was also observing the Sun and the Pacific Decadal Oscillation (PDO) and predicted that global cooling will start in 2014 and will last for the next 30 years or more.

While it was mentally tiring for a non-scientist to follow the presentations of those scientists who have been doing climate research work for years and decades, it was also very rewarding to realize that there are plenty of other factors, natural factors (the Sun, the ocean, volcanoes, geologic degassing, galactic cosmic rays, etc.) that affect the Earth’s climate, whether it is global cooling or global warming. That is why I never believe Mr. Al Gore, a politician and not a scientist, and the IPCC, a political and intergovernmental body, not a scientific body, in their “man-made global warming” claims. Readers who are interested on this topic, I am willing to discuss more about this topic and show new and updated materials on global temperature, polar ice cover, sea level and related data.

Late gain ends volatile week for the US stock market THE stock market had another tumultuous ride this week as disarray in Europe heightened fears of a global economic slowdown. Despite a late-day comeback on Friday, major stock indexes are down about 10 percent from the peak they reached in late April. Declines of that size are known as a “correction.” They are normal during a bull market and are even seen as a healthy way for a market to regain its bearings after a long period of uninterrupted gains. The correction that started this week is the first for the bull market that began in March of last year. Whether the correction has mostly run its course or turns into a bear market, defined as a decline of 20 percent or more, is anyone’s guess. Stock indexes ended with solid gains Friday after starting the day lower and dipping below 10,000; the Dow closed up 125 points. The Dow Jones industrial average plunged 376 points Thursday, its worst one-day drop in more than a year. Stocks are now about where they were in early February and down 2 percent for the year. Jacob Gold, a financial adviser and CEO of Jacob Gold & Associates in Scottsdale, Ariz., says the market collapse of 2008 is fresh in the memories of clients who have been peppering him with calls and emails this week. “They’re secondguessing themselves because they don’t want to end up giving the economy the benefit of the doubt and having it hurt them,” he said. “People are still licking their wounds from 2008 and they’re not in a po-

sition to put themselves at risk like they once did.” The immediate catalyst for this week’s sharp declines was deepening confusion over how Europe intends to get control of its public finances, restore order to financial markets and instill confidence in the continent’s shared currency, the euro. Germany broke ranks from its European neighbors this week, singlehandedly reining in speculative trading in European bonds. And on Friday it was rebuffed in its calls for harsh punishments for European countries that consistently flout rules on fiscal spending limits. Greece is struggling to cope with staggering debt, and investors fear it could end up dragging other economically weak European countries down with it. If Europe’s banks crack down on lending, the thinking goes, other banks around the world could follow suit, tripping up economies around the world. The unsettling news from Europe this week also reminded investors how tepid the US economic recovery really is in historical terms. Gross domestic product rose at an annual rate of 3.2 percent in the first three months of the year, but that’s not nearly as strong of a comeback as is typical after a deep recession. Companies also aren’t hiring that much, unemployment is still 9.9 percent and the housing market hasn’t recovered from its slump. “Normally you would get a much stronger snapback,” said Paul Ballew, chief economist at Nationwide Insurance in Columbus, Ohio, and a former senior economist with the Federal Reserve. “Given the magnitude of the downturn, growth should be much stronger than that already.”

US markets opened lower again on Friday, but a rally in financial shares helped stocks move higher. JPMorgan Chase & Co. and Bank of America Corp. were the biggest gainers in the 30 stocks that make up the Dow Jones industrial average. They and other financial shares rose after the Senate passed long-awaited financial reform legislation, removing a significant overhang for US banks. In other signs that some investors were regaining an appetite for risk, the price of ultra-safe Treasury securities edged lower after spiking on Thursday, the dollar edged lower, commodity prices stabilized and gold prices fell. The Dow rose 125.38, or 1.3 percent, to 10,193.39. The broader Standard & Poor’s 500 index rose 16.10, or 1.5 percent, to 1,087.69. The Nasdaq composite index rose 25.03, or 1.1 percent, to 2,229.04. About three stocks rose for every one that fell on the New York Stock Exchange, where consolidated volume was 8.1 billion shares, versus 8.5 billion shares Thursday. The Dow fell below 10,000 during early trading Friday before recovering. It last fell through that level on May 6, when it briefly plunged nearly 1,000 points in an afternoon rout that was its biggest intraday slide. Regulators have said they are still unclear on what caused that brief plunge. The three-week slide since the market hit its recent peak in late April has shaved $1.3 trillion of value from the S&P 500 index in the 19 trading days through Thursday. That’s more than the $1 trillion Europe and the International Monetary Fund pledged to shore up weak European economies.

UniOil slashes gas prices by P1/liter SMALL oil player UniOil Petroleum Philippines Inc. on Thursday reduced its gasoline prices by P1 per liter. The price rollback took effect at 2 p.m. and covered UniOil’s un-

leaded gasoline and Quantum Premium gasoline. The oil firm said the price cut was brought about by decreasing oil prices in the world market.

UniOil corporate communications officer Leah Flor said Thursday’s price slash brought to almost P2 the total price adjustment implemented by the oil firm this week.

Alliance Global Group Q1 earnings hit P2.2 billion ANDREW Tan-led conglomerate Alliance Global Group, Inc. increased its first quarter net income by more than a tenth on the back of strong sales from its real estate, food and beverage, and fastfood units. The company posted a consolidated net income of P2.22 billion from January to March this year, up by 12 percent from a year ago, the company told the Philippine Stock Exchange on Friday. Its net income attributable to its shareholders was P1.65 billion, up by a fifth from 2009’s P1.37 billion. Alliance Global’s consolidated revenues reached P10.5 billion, up

by almost a fifth from P8.86 billion in 2009. The company is behind real estate giant Megaworld Corp., beverage unit Emperador Distillers, and McDonald’s Philippines master franchiser Golden Arches Development Corp. Megaworld contributed 46 percent to the total earnings, while its consumer units delivered 43 percent. The company’s earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization in the first quarter reached P3.3 billion, up 15 percent year-on-year. “Our first quarter results show AGI’s continued strength in the industries it operates in. We believe that we are reap-

ing the benefits of the business decisions we made in the last couple of years,” President Kingson Sian said in a statement. The company expanded its various businesses and recently ventured into the tourism industry with Malaysian company Genting Hong Kong Limited, which would build two resorts in Metro Manila with Alliance Global’s subsidiary Travellers International Hotel Group, Inc.

Wedding customs, Pinoy style!

TRADITIONAL marriage customs in the Philippines and Filipino wedding practices pertain to the characteristics of marriage and wedding traditions established and adhered to by Filipino men and women in the Philippines after a period of courtship and engagement. These traditions extend to other countries around the world where Filipino communities exist. Kasalan is the Filipino word for “wedding”[1], while its root word – kasal – means “marriage”.The present-day character of marriages and weddings in the Philippines were primarily influenced by the permutation of native, Christian, Catholic, Protestant, Spanish, and American models. HISTORY. A typical ancient traditional Filipino wedding, during pre-colonial times, is held for three days and was officiated by a babaylan, a tribal priest or priestess.The house of the babaylan was the ceremonial center for the nuptial. On the first day, the couple was brought to the priest’s home, where the babaylan blesses them, while their hands are joined over a container of uncooked rice. On the third day, the priest would prick their chests to draw a small amount of blood, which will be placed on a container to be mixed with water. After announcing their love for each other for three times, they were fed by the priest with cooked rice coming from a single container. Afterwards, they were to drink the water that was mixed with their blood. The priest proclaimed that they are officially wed after their necks and hands were bound by a cord or ,sometimes, once their long hairs had been entwined together. In lieu of the babaylan, the datu or a wise elder may also officiate a pre-colonial Filipino wedding. After the pre-colonial wedding ceremony, while at the just-married couple’s residence, a series of giving-ofgifts ritual was also done to

counter the negative responses of the bride if asked to enter her new home, if she refuses to go up the stairs of the dwelling, if she denies to participate in the marriage banquet, or even to go into her new bedroom, a room she would be sharing with her spouse.

Spanish colonialism brought changes to these marriage rituals because of the teachings and conversion efforts of Spanish missionaries, which occurred as early as the 18th century. As a result, the majority of currentday Filipino weddings became predominantly Christian or Catholic in character, which is also because of the mostly Catholic population, although indigenous traditions still exist today in other regions of the Philippines. Parts of Filipino wedding ceremonies have become faith-centered and God-centered, which also highlights the concept that the joining of two individuals is a “life long commitment” of loving and caring. In general, the marriage itself does not only signify the union of two persons, but also the fusion of two families, and the unification two clans. REQUIREMENTS. The following are the legal requirements that must be met in order to marry in the Philippines. To be specific, the exact wordings as stated in Philippine marriage law are presented as follows: Legal capacity of the contracting parties who must be a male and a female, 18 years old and above

Tips for the June Bride Why go contemporary when you can go vintage with your wedding dress? Every bride wants to look her best and unique on her very special wedding day. There is probably no better way to become unique than going out from the norms. Why go contemporary when you can go vintage? Classics have always been so beautiful because it harkens you back to an earlier era – an era which is far from the other brides like you are in right now. You will perhaps be the most unique bride in town! However, going vintage with your wedding dress still poses some pitfalls and you should watch out for these when you are shopping for one! Here they are: 1. Avoid wedding dresses with stains or those that need repairs. Since they are vintage, there must be some stains, holes and runs on them. So be very careful and check carefully the wedding dress that you are eyeing to wear on your wedding day. 2. Don’t trust the oldest dresses. Fabrics do run so again, check the vintage wedding dress really carefully. 3. Set your budget before shopping. Vintage are still in so don’t expect that their price are out. Set your budget first unless you want to really get disappointed. 4. Regular size isn’t the size in vintage wedding dresses. As humans grow bigger and taller, fabrics and clothing materials shrink and go smaller and shorter. So, make sure to get the size that is higher in figure and number.

without any impediment to get married; Consent freely given in the presence of the solemnizing officer; Authority of the solemnizing officer (only incumbent member of the judiciary; priest, rabbi, imam, or minister of any church or religious sect duly authorized by his church or religious sect and registered with the civil registrar general;

ship captain or airplane chief, military commander of a unit to which a chaplain is assigned, in the absence of the latter, during a military operation only in marriages at the point of death; and consul-general, consul or vice-consul only between Filipino citizens abroad are authorized by law to solemnize marriage). Marriage law in the Philippines also requires couples to attend a semin a r o n famil y planning before t h e wedding day in order to become responsible family life and parenthood.

The seminar is normally conducted at a city hall or a municipal council. Some officiating ministers or churches require the couple to present a certificate of no marriage record (CENOMAR), on top of or together with the marriage license and the authority of the solemnizing officer. The CENOMAR can be secured from the National Statistics Office or its designated offices and branches. MARRIAGE PROPOSAL. The traditional marriage proposal in the Philippines takes the form of the pamanhikan or pamamanhikan or the “parental marriage proposal”, a formal way of asking the parents of the Filipino woman for her hand. In this custom, the would-be groom and his father and mother go to the would-bride’s home. Gifts of food or other items are brought by the proposing family. Once the proposal has been accepted, other matters discussed during this meeting include the wedding plan, the date of the wedding, the budget for the wedding, and the list of guests. The expenses for the wedding are generally shouldered by the family of the groom. WEDDING ANNOUNCEMENT. After the pamamanhikan, the couple performs the pa-alam or “wedding announcement visitations”. In this custom, the couple goes to the homes of relatives to inform the latter of their status as a couple and the schedule of their nuptial. It is also during this visits when the couple personally delivers their wedding invitations. The typical Filipino wedding invitation contains the date and venue for the wedding ceremony and for the wedding reception, as well as the names and

roles of the principal sponsors of the bride. Weddings in the Philippines are commonly held during the month of June. CEREMONIAL PROTOCOL. Wedding attire: Barong Tagalog; A Filipino groom wearing a collarless version of the Barong Tagalog. Bride’s garment; The Filipino bride’s attire is typically made of a custom-made white wedding gown. This is from the American influence of dressing the woman on her wedding day. Groom’s apparel; The Filipino groom’s clothing is the Barong Tagalog, a formal and traditional transparent, embroidered and button-up shirt made from jusi (also spelled as husi) fabric made from pineapple fibers. This formal Filipino male’s apparel is worn untucked with a white Tshirt beneath, and over a black pair of pants. Generally, the wedding ceremony proper in the Philippines includes the celebration of a one-hour long mass. The Filipin o groom arrives one hour earlier than the Filipina bride for the purpose of receiving wedding guests at the church. The bride will arrive later onboard a wedding car, then gets off the vehicle to meet her waiting groom. The groom could be waiting with his parents. Afterwards, the groom and the bride performs the bridal procession or the wedd i n g march. Duri n g the

ding attendants, three pairs – each pair consists of a male and female secondary sponsors – are chosen to function as lighters of the wedding candles, handlers of the wedding veils, and placers of the wedding cord.

Wedding rings and the arrhae. After the exchange of wedding rings by the couple, the groom gives the wedding arrhae to his bride. The arrhae is a symbol of his “monetary gift” to the bride because it is composed of 13 pieces of gold, or silver, coins, a “pledge” that the groom is devoted to the welfare and well-being of his wife and future offspring. Both rings and arrhae are blessed first by the priest during the wedding. Wedding candles. The lighters of the wedding candles, known as the candle spon-

cord is called the yugal and is customarily shaped or looped to form the figure of the number 8, a shape that signifies “everlasting fidelity”. Specifically, each loop of the cord is placed around the invidual neck-and-shoulder area of the bride and the groom. Apart from being made of silk, variations of the make of the wedding cord also include being a string of flowers and as links of coins. All of these signifies infinite marital bond. Wedding reception. During the reception, it is typical to use a pair of white male and female doves (placed in a bell-shaped white cage or receptacle hanging from the ceiling, which can be opened by pulling ribbons or cords). These doves symbolize marital harmony and peace. After their release from their cage, the person who catches them may take them home to rear as pets. Tossing the bouquet is not the common practice for the bride. Instead, the bride proffers it to the Virgin Mary, to a patron saint, or placed over the grave of a deceased f a m i l y member or relative. Filipino Muslim wedding. A wedding dance performed by a Yakan couple from Mindanao. Filipino Muslims in the Mindanao region of the Philippines commonly practice pre-arranged marriages and betrothal. These marital discussions involve the agreement on the dowry. The Tausog people’s wedding include the pangalay, a celebration or announcement performed by means of the playing of percussion instruments like as the gabbang, the kulintang, and the agong. Included in the wedding ceremony that is officiated by an Imam are readings taken from the Quran and the placement of the groom’s fingerprint on the forehead bride.

nuptial, the bride holds an heirloom rosary along with her traditional bridal bouquet. Ceremonial sponsors, witnesses, and participants. The principal wedding sponsors – also known as special sponsors, primary sponsors, counselors, or witnesses of the marriage ceremony – chosen by the would-be spouses normally includes a multiple set of pairs of godparents (typically a total of 12 individual godparents composed of 6 godmothers or ninang, and 6 godfathers or ninong). Chosen secondary sponsors are made up of the bridesmaids, groomsmen, and 3 more pairs of wedding attendants. The wedding attendants are responsible for the special parts of lighting the wedding candles, plac-

ing the veil and the cords on the couple being wed.Other official ceremonial participants are children, usually males, with the role of being the coin bearer and the ring bearer. Ceremonial paraphernalia in Filipino weddings include the wedding rings, the wedding arrhae, the wedding candles, the wedding veils, and the wedding cord. The ring bearer acts as the holder and keeper of the rings until the exchanging of rings is performed, while the coin bearer acts as the holder and keeper of the arrhae until it is offered and given by the groom to his bride. Among the secondary sponsors or wed-

sors, lights the pair of candles on each side of the couple. For Christians, this embodies the presence of God in the marital union. From any of these lighted pair of candles, the bride and the groom will then light a solitary candle, known as the “unity candle” which signifies the joining of their two families. For Christians, this lighting of a single candle symbolizes the invocation of Jesus Christ into their life as a married couple. The use of the unity candle is rooted from Protestantism. Wedding veils. After the ritual of lighting candles, a pair of secondary sponsors known as the veil sponsors will drape and pin a long and white-colored tulle veil over the shoulder of the groom, while another veil is draped on the head of the bride. These two veils signify the clothing of two individuals who have become one due to the ceremony of marriage. Another form of veiling ritual is the placing of a single white veil over the shoulder of the groom and on the bride’s head. Wedding cord. After the veiling ritual, the pair of secondary sponsors, known as the cord sponsors, will then drape a cord over the shoulders of the groom and the bride. This decorative

*** WEDDING SUPERSTITIONS. FILIPINOS HAVE ALSO DEVELOPED SUPERSTITIONS THAT ARE RELATED TO MARRIAGE AND WEDDINGS. Pre-colonial Filipino superstitions include the groom or the bride should avoid traveling before the nuptial to prevent accidents from happening, the bride must not wear pearls as these are similar to tears, performing a procession composed of men holding bolo knives and musicians playing agongs to drive away evil spirits. This march was also carried out after the wedding ceremony until the newly-wed couple reaches their abode. The purpose of this procession is similar to the current practice of breaking plates during the wedding reception, in order to shoo away bad luck. During Spanish colonization, the Spaniards introduced new superstitions, such as the avoidance of activities that may cause broken marriages or sadness and regret. These include not wearing wedding gowns in advance, not wearing garments that are colored black, and not offering sharp objects as gifts. Other Filipino beliefs include that typhoons occurring on wedding days may bring bad fortune; that – after the wedding ceremony – the bride should walk ahead of her husband or step on his foot to prevent being dominated by the male spouse; that an extinguished candle during the ceremony served as an omen that the groom or the bride will die soon (depending on which candle was smothered by the wind, the one at the groom’s side or the bride’s side); and that an accidentally dropped wedding ring, wedding veil, or wedding arrhae will cause marital misery.

AGING masaya si Helen Nicolette Henson na maibalik sa kanyang kaibigang si Maria Venus Raj at Helen Nicolette Henson ang korona at title nito at kahit anong mangyari ay walang magbabago sa kanilang pagkakaibigan. Maaalalang, ang second runner up na si Nicolette ang ipapalit dapat kay Maria Venus upang irepresenta ang Pilipinas sa Miss Universe pageant nang maging issue ang citizenship ni Nicolette Raj. Henson At nitong nakalipas na araw ng Biyernes ay nakuha na ni Venus ang kanyang Philippine passport na siyang tanging kondisyon ng Bb. Pilipinas organization upang mapatunayang certified Pinay ang Bikolana beauty queen. Ayon kay Nicolette, masaya siyang nagtagumpay ang kanyang kaibigan na mabawi ang pinaghirapang korona at title bilang Bb. Pilipinas-Universe. Inaasam rin nito na sana raw ay mapanood niya ng live ang naturang pageant na gaganapin sa buwan ng Agosto sa Las Vegas.

Thanks God! M

AY ilang linggo rin tayong nawala sa sirkulasyon, dahil sa hindi natin inaasahan pangyayari. Pero sa kabila nito, malaki pa rin ang aking pasasalamat sa ating Poong Maykapal dahil hindi Niya tayo pinabayaan. *** VICE MA YOR MAY ISK O MORENO ISKO MORENO,, MAINIT P A RIN PA At sa ilang araw nating pananatili sa Ospital ng Maynila, naloka ang inyong lingkod, nang makadaupang palad natin ang wala pa rin kupas at hot na hot papa pa rin na dating ng makisig na bise alkalde ng Maynila si re-elect Vice Mayor Isko Moreno at naroon din ang butihing re-elect Mayor Alfredo Lim. Hay naku, naloka talaga ang beauty ko mga kapatid at bumilis ang aking paggaling sa biglaan namin pagkikitang iyon ni VM Moreno. At lalo pa tayong humanga kina Mayor Lim at Vice Mayor Lim dahil katatapos lamang halalan ay hindi man lamang sila nagpahinga, kundi tuloy-tuloy pa rin ang ginagawang serbisyopubliko, matapos silang maglagay ng bagong machine equipment sa Ospital ng Maynila. Isa na rito ang Radiol-

ogy machine na isa mga kagamitang pang-x-ray. At nakapanayam rin natin si Mayor Lim, sinabi nitong bukas ang Maynila sa lahat ng pasyente kahit saan man lugar ito nagmula basta’t kailangan ang pangunahing lunas lalo na sa emergency. Bilib rin tayo sa serbisyo ng ospital dahil

Vice Mayor Isko Moreno karamihan sa mga nagpapagamot rito ay mga taga Pasay, Makati, at Laguna. “Basta’t kailangan, gamutin, gamutin, hindi kailangan kung taga saan man siyang lugar”, ani pa ni Mayor Lim. Ganun kabait si Mayor Lim, sa katunayan mas prayoridad para sa kanya ang kalusugan na bawat mamamayan Filipino kaya

Sunshine Dizon at Timothy na on the family way na ang mga ito. Ayon sa aktres, inaasahan nila na magiging kambal ang kanilang anak at gusto nga umano nila ay lalaki. Hindi maitago ni Sunshine ang kasiyahan sa kanyang married life. Exciting umano ang kanilang pagsasama dahil araw-araw ay may nadidiskubre silang bago sa isa’t-isa. Sa ugali ay hindi rin umano sila nagkaka-

naman halos mapuno na ng pagamutan ang ibat’ibang sulok ng Maynila sa patuloy na pagpapatayo nito ng mga ospital sa lungsod at mga pampublikong paaralan dahil mahalaga rin para rito ang edukasyon ng bawat kabataan. Anyway, may isang pakialamerang nagtanong sa makisig na Vice Mayor Moreno kung open pa raw ba itong gumawa ng pelikula at pabirong tinanong kung pwede pa siyang magbold. Siyempre naman tuwiran itong sinagot ng VM Isko na tapos na ang kabanata ng kanyang buhay rito. Natawa naman ang ating kaibigan na kolokadidang na si Itchy Gabayan ng People’s Journal, natawang sinagot na siyempre hindi na, dapat papelan na ni VM ang isang abogado, na ikinatawa naman ni Isko. Malaki rin talaga ang pasasalamat ko kina Mayor Lim at VM Moreno d a h i l bubti na lamang at sa Ospital ng Maynila ako naadmit, dahil bukod sa mababait umistema ang mga doctor at nurse rito ay magagaling pa. Lalo na sa pangunguna ng kanilang Director na si Dr. Isias Cando, lovable na mabait pa.

layo kung saan kapwa sila seloso. Napag-alaman na ikinagulat na lang ng lahat nang magpakasal sa pamamagitan ng civil rights ang dalawa. Sa ngayon umano ay ang church wedding naman nila na gaganapin sa susunod na taon ang kanilang pinaghahandaan.

Geneva Cruz, umaming 2 beses nakunan noon

ALANG kagatol-ga tol na umamin ang actress/singer na si Geneva Cruz, na dalawang beses itong nakunan noon na sana ay anak nila KC Montero. Aniya, ito ang dahilan kung bakit ang actress/singer ay naging matatag dahil noong mga panahong iyon ay silang dalawa lang ni KC ang umiinda ng sakit sa pagkawala ng kanilang anak. Samantala, itinanggi ng actress/singer na si Geneva Cruz ang una nang napaulat na hindi sila nagpansinan ng pinsang si Sheryl Cruz nang magkasabay na mag-guest sa isang show.

Pacman nakisimpatya ka y W illie kay BINIGYANG-suporta ni Sarangani Representativeelect Manny Pacquiao ang kaibigang si Willie Revillame sa gitna ng kinakaharap nito ngayon na kontrobersya. Ayon kay Pacman, tiwala siyang makakayanan ng “Wowowee” host ang pinagdadaanan nito ngayon. ‘Wag lang aniya mawalan ng tiwala si Willie sa Panginoon. Inihayag ni Pacman na hindi naman umano magbibigay ng problema ang Panginoon na hindi makakayanan.

Nilinaw ni Geneva na walang isyu sa pagitan nila ng pinsan. Aniya, binabati niya si Sheryl sa tuwing magkikita sila. Inihayag ng dating misis ni KC Montero, galit siya sa mga gumagawa ng ganitong isyu dahil wala naman umanong katotohanan. Dagdag pa ng singer, hindi lang sila masyadong nagkausap ng pinsan noon dahil nagrerehearse siya ng kanta.

Laban nina Domingo at Jaca, alay kay Z Gorres ALAY umano ni WBO Oriental bantamweight champion Michael Domingo sa kapwa Cebuano boxer na si Z Gorres ang laban nito noong nakalipas na Linggo sa Colombian boxer Luis Melendez sa Waterfront Hotel and Casino Brgy. Lahug, lungsod ng Cebu. Ayon sa report, ipinangako umano ni Domingo na hindi nito bibiguin ang mga kababayan lalo na ang kaibigang Gorres. Para sa supporting bout, inaabangan din ang laban ng Cebuanong si Jimrex Jaca sa Kenyan boxer na si James Kimori.

Shane Mosley, binawian ng title belt ng WBA

Shane Mosley

Hinubaran ngayon ng titulo ng World Boxing Association (WBA) si welterweight champion Sugar Shane Mosley, ito ay dahil umano sa kabiguan na sundin ang kondisyon na itinakda sa nakaraang laban nito kay Floyd Mayweather Jr. Maalala na sa nasabing laban, hindi pumayag si Mayweather na gawin itong title fight dahil ayaw umano nitong mabawasan ang kaniyang panalo. “The WBA is proud to count Mr. Mosley among its world champions and wishes him all t h e best for his career. The doors of the WBA will be always open for him,” ayon sa ipinalabas na kalatas ng WBA. Sa hiwalay na report, sinasabing iginawad na ng organisasyon kay Vyacheslav Senchenko ang welterweight belt.
