Lawmaker eyes construction of cemetery for Muslims in Oro By MARK FRANCISCO Staff member

A LAWMAKER is planning to construct a cemetery exclusively for Muslims in Cagayan de Oro City. During a meeting with more than a hundred youthful Balik Islam converts here at the residence of community organizer Nelson Alonto-Sarapuddin, Rep. Rufus Rodriguez (second

district, Cagayan de Oro City) said it is high time for Muslims to have their own cemetery because of their increasing population in the city. It is learned that Muslims bury their dead in a modest way. The grave should be aligned perpendicular to Mecca. The body is then placed in the grave without a casket, lying on its right

side and facing Mecca. Grave markers are simple because outwardly lavish displays are supposed to be discouraged in Islam. The lowering of the corpse is then done by the next of kin. It is then fully buried by the gravediggers, with the eldest male supervising. Alonto-Sarapuddin, who is expected to be the second See eyes, page A15

M’nao still lords over PH coffee production Your Mindanao-wide Community Newspaper

By Bong S. Sarmiento of MindaNews

COFFEE production in the Philippines continues to be lorded over by Mindanao, with Region 12 or the South Cotabato, Cotabato, Sultan Kudarat, Sarangani and General Santos (Soccsksargen) region remaining as the top regional coffee producer of the country.


Jennifer Remoquillo, Department of Agriculture (DA) national coordinator for High Value Crops Development Program, said that Mindanao accounts for 77 percent of the country’s coffee production. Trailing far behind in coffee production is Luzon at 17 percent and Visayas at six percent, she added. In terms of area planted to coffee, 67 percent is in Mindanao, 23 percent in Luzon and 10 percent in the Visayas. Citing data from Philippine Statistics Authority’s Bureau of Agricultural Statistics (BAS), Remoquillo

said that a total of 117,451 hectares (ha) were so far planted with coffee across the country. Of this, 26,434 ha are in Soccsksargen region, added Remoquillo, who was among the speakers of the 2nd Regional Coffee Congress, hosted by the DA Region 12 office, which opened Monday. She disclosed that coffee production in the country last year dropped by 4.04 percent to 75,454 metric tons. Remoquillo attributed the drop in coffee production last year to the cutting and pruning of old trees and

the effects of heavy rains and strong winds during fruit development in Sultan Kudarat, the country’s top provincial coffee producer. In Davao City, she said there was a shift to banana and in Cavite, coffee farms were converted to pineapple. There was also lower production in Batangas due to the long dry season during the flowering stage and also due to the infestation of scale insects, she said. Amalia Jayag-Datukan, DA director for Region 12, said they conducted the second regional coffee congress, which will end Tuesday to help the industry

achieve further growth. This year’s congress carried the theme “Kapeyapaan: Susi sa Matagumpay at Maunlad na Pamayanan Tungo sa ASEAN Integration.” Region 12 last year produced 28,000 MT of coffee, said Datukan, adding the regional Agriculture office continues to work to increase the region’s coffee production. Remoquillo noted that among the factors that hamper the growth of the country’s coffee industry is the lack of quality seedlings. “We have insufficient knowledge in coffee nursery production, (resulting to) the problem on quality planting materials,” she said. Viable coffee farming requires good planting material, Remoquillo added. In the Philippines, coffee farming is dominated by small farmers with an average farm size of one to two hectares. The most common variety is Robusta which accounted for over 70 percent production, followed by Arabica, Liberica and Excelsa, it added. Remoquillo said some other challenges facing the country’s coffee industry include pest and disease control and marketing. For the marketing challenge, she noted that the market requires producers to deliver consistent quality and sufficient quantity of coffee beans. (Bong S.

Emano-Baculio, together again in 2016? Mindanao Daily NEWS northmin . westmin . caraga . davao

Yes, it is very unfortunate that Julio Uy’s dream of creating a “political dynasty” in Misamis Oriental is nothing but a broken dream. With the Baculio-Emano tandem coming together again in the 2016, Julio Uy’s dream would certainly turn into a nightmare. Going back to the 2013 elections, the victory of Juliet Uy, the incumbent representative of the province’s second district, was credited to “Bambi” Emano’s support of Juliet. Now, Julio might not believe it. However, that is the truth. It was the pulling out the Padayon Pilipino’s support in the candidacy of Baculio that led to the victory of Juliet. The conflict between Baculios’ and the Emanos’ started when Baculio fitted his son Rex against Bambi in the 2010 Congressional race in the province’s second district. It was a hard decision for both – Baculio fielding his son against the Padayon Pilipino that made him Congressman for nine years and “Bambi” Emano who

has supported Baculio’s political career ever since. Now, the two political stalwarts in the province second district would certainly iron out their differences for political reasons. It is called “political preservation.” The Emano would preserve their hold in the province while Baculio would be eager to reestablish his political hold of the congressional district. Perhaps, Julio Uy did not think of this scenario. Perhaps, he thinks that because Juliet is congresswoman, he could muster enough support in the sec-

In this respect, we must think critically about education condition and the aspects which really need attention. In education, there are input, process, and output. These three simple aspects beside other aspect are still good to understand. With these three aspects, we can see which part needs emphasis and what budget should be prioritized. There are four conditions in education. First, when input (student quality) is bad and the process (school system) is bad, we can certainly determine that the output is obviously bad. Second, when input is bad but the process is good, we can probably predict that the output is better than the input before the process. Third, when the input is good but the process is bad,

ond district. Wrong, Julio! If Julio could remember he was beaten twice in a row when he ran for Congress against Bambi then. Well, Julio thinks he has Alexis Quina of the first district as his running mate. He believes that Quina could lead him to victory in the first district. This is another absurd idea. Quina only has Balingasag! The first district has 11 towns including the component city of Gingoog. Now, like Villanueva where Julio could not get a solid vote other than an enough winning edge against an opponent, Quina is not also certain of getting a solid vote even for his own. The analysis of the “inclined voting” is a very important factor, too. For instance, it would be a oneon-one between Quina and Joey Pelaez for the vice gubernatorial race. It is noteworthy that the Medina, Gingoog, Magsaysay district is the stronghold of the Pelaez. In other words, compared to Alexis Quina, Joey Pelaez is ahead when

it comes to “inclined to vote” analysis in the first district. Thus, it would not be a surprise if Quina would lose in the province’s first district, too. While banking on the support of the Liberal Party, where Uy and Quina have coalesced, the LP is only interested in its presidential and senatorial candidates. Like any other national political party, the local political alliance is considered only as “watchers” of the national candidates’ votes. Even in terms of financial support, the national political party could not be relied upon. In a nutshell, the dream of Julio Uy to take political control of Misamis Oriental exists only in his mind. With the strengthened alliance of the Baculios’ and the Emanos,’ there is a greater possibility that the year 2015 would be Juliet Uy’s last term. Putting it bluntly, Jun Baculio would be able to regain his political bailiwick in Misamis Oreintal’s second district in 2016. -0Send comments/reactions:

Emphasis in education aspects

we can also predict that the output is bad. Fourth, when the input is good and the process is good, we can certainly predict that the output is excellent. Process, in this case, is the most important aspect in education. Among the four conditions above, the best is the forth condition. The worst is the first one. But, the most sinful school system among the four above is the third condition. This condition shows that the input (student quality before the process) is good but because of the bad process, they have bad fate in their future. Schools—in this case the government—are the root cause. They must be responsible for all the

students’ future, including the parents. Process implicitly reflects several factors. They are the quality of the teachers, curriculum, equipment such as teaching media and technology related to it, school condition such as building and all the things related to the learning and teaching interaction in the classroom, and so on. These factors need more budget because they determine all output being processed. Teachers’ quality needs budget for improving the teachers’ quality. It can be in the form of allowance to further study or to higher level. It can also in the form of training and the likes. With good quality of the teachers, education process will be good as well. Teaching media and all technologies related to education process must be highlighted. They must be given more budgets for improving the process. Again, process is the most determinant factor, among other factors in education. So, any political party that is the ruling one in any country must be aware of See djuwari, page A15

Vice Governor Pelaez lauds the success of the 2nd “A Happy MisOr” Student Leadership Training

CAGAYAN de Oro City—The head of Ad Hoc Committee on the Bangsamoro Basic Law (AHCBBL) yesterday urged his colleagues in the House of Representatives to approve the VICE GOVERNOR JOEY substitute bill on the Bangsamoro Basic Law G. PELAEZ was delighted at the outcome of the 2nd (BBL). Rep. Rufus Rodriguez of the second district of Cagayan de Oro City and chair of the AHCBBL said Congress had only a few weeks left to discuss the fate of the BBL. Rodriguez has expressed optimism that his substitute bill, House Bill (HB) 5811, will be able to get the green light of his colleagues as he has already removed the 48 unconstitutional provisions. Once approved, HB 5811, otherwise known as the Basic Law on the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region

(BLBAR), will repeal Republic Acts No. 9054 and. 6734, the laws governing the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (Armm). The substitute bill on BLL, said Rodriguez, will no longer include the cities of Cagayan de Oro and Iligan, including Misamis Oriental, under the Bangsamoro government. The congress will resume session on November 3 and that the Lower House had until December 16, 2015 to discuss the substitute bill in the plenary.

number of participants will grow,” Vice Governor Pelaez said. “I have been organizing leadership trainings for free for Misamis Oriental, Gingoog City and El Salvador City, including Cagayan de Oro City, when I was in DepEd. This year’s training is the second only as Vice Governor of the Province,” added Vice Governor Pelaez. It will be recalled that the 1st Student Leadership Training in Tagoloan Central School which was attended by more than 800 participants coincided, more or less, with his first year as Vice Governor.

Children mine gold under water Editorial: e-mail: • Advertising: e-mail: Contact: 0917-7121424, 0947-8935776

By Human Rights Watch

Thousands of children in the Philippines risk their lives every day mining gold. Children work in unstable 25-meter-deep pits that could collapse at any moment. They mine gold underwater, along the shore, or in rivers, with oxygen tubes in their mouths. They also process gold with mercury, a toxic metal, risking irreversible health damage from mercury poisoning. During an investigation in the Camarines Norte and Masbate provinces in the country’s Bicol region, Human Rights Watch interviewed 65 child miners about their work in artisanal and small-scale gold mines. The children described how they were terrified when climbing down shafts or diving into pits. They complained about the health effects of the work, such as back pain, skin infections and muscle spasms consistent with symptoms of mercury poisoning. Human Rights Watch also interviewed witnesses to a fatal mining accident, in which

a 17-year-old boy and his adult brother were asphyxiated in a deep pit mine in September 2014. The Philippines government has not done nearly enough to protect children from the hazards of child labor in small-scale gold mining. Although the government has ratified treaties and enacted laws to combat the worst forms of child labor, it has largely failed to implement them: the

government barely monitors child labor in mining and does not penalize employers or withdraw children from these dangerous work environments. While the government has taken some important steps to ensure education for all, the number of outof-school children working in gold mines remains a concern. Mining and environmental regulations for small-

scale mines – including a March 2015 ban on mercury use and underwater mining – have gone unenforced, despite the government’s promise to reduce mercury and to make mining beneficial for the population. While the Philippines has signed the 2013 Minamata Convention on Mercury, it has not yet ratified the treaty. The government’s lack of concrete action reflects

Child labor descends where it’s dark and deep By Human Rights Watch

“It was dark and deep, and it was my first time. I felt scared.” “Now I’m used to it,” said Dennis, now 14. He was 13 when he made the first dive. Deep in an underwater mine shaft that is repeated in countless holes on the ocean floor and river beds in the Philippines. Because many of the gold deposits are beneath the water table, a unique practice known as compressor mining has developed in coastal areas along the shore, in rivers and in swamps. Diving underwater for several hours in 10-meter-deep shafts, miners receive air

from a tube attached to a diesel-run air compressor at the surface. This extremely dangerous work is mostly carried out by adult men but boys also work alongside in dry underground pits that are up to 25 meters deep. They are usually lowered into the pit on a rope and work there for several hours. If the pits are deep, oxygen is pumped in with a blower. If the pits are not so deep, miners work without a blower, but often find it difficult to breathe. The divers enter a narrow wooden shaft (approximately 70 x 70 centimeters) that has been dug into the bottom of the ocean or river. Some stay for an hour, others

remain three hours under water, sometimes longer. Several boys told Human Rights Watch how they got extremely cold because of the long time spent under water. “It is very cold inside and it’s so dark. The scary part is when you just start to build [dig a tunnel in the riverbed] and all of it is mud,” said Samuel, 17. (The names of all children have been replaced with pseudonyms to protect their privacy.) “I tried today to go inside but I could only last one minute. It was cold. It was very dark and when I came up I was really cold,”said a boy who, on the day he spoke with Human Rights Watch, made his first attempt to dive for gold. He used to pull sacks of ore. Those who dive for gold risk drowning from lack of oxygen or mudslides. In some cases, the compressor tubes providing divers with oxygen stopped working and forced them to come up for air quickly. “Sometimes you have to make it up fast, especially if you have no air in your hose

if the machine stops working,” said a diver, Joseph, 16. It’s a normal thing. It’s happened to me.” Coming up fast from diving deep in the water is also dangerous. Small nitrogen bubbles can build in the person’s blood and cause “the bends,” or decompression sickness. This can result in pain in the joints, shortness of breath and embolism, a brain disorder. Compressor mining carries other health risks. Children working for extended periods in water often suffer itchy and infected skin, a condition locally called romborombo. Such infections can be caused by bacteria in the water.[25] In addition, children are exposed to carbon monoxide from the diesel compressors, increasing the long-term risk of lung cancer. In March 2015, the government prohibited compressor mining. While compressor mining appears to have reduced in recent years, it remains an important livelihood in Camarines Norte and continues, despite the ban. SciencePhilippines

not only insufficient staff and technical capacity, but also a lack of political will by national and local officials to take measures that will not be well-received by the local population in impoverished areas, or by mine owners and traders that rely on child labor. The government should improve child labor monitoring and child protection systems, and do more to reach those who have

dropped out of school. It should ensure that its programs to address the ill-effects of poverty, such as free school meals and social support programs, are reaching families in mining areas, who frequently depend on the labor of children for survival. The government should support the creation of a legal, regulated, small-scale gold mining free of child See gold, page A15

Child labor, small mines By Human Rights Watch

“Small-scale gold mining” is defined under Philippine law as mining with either no or simple machinery and a large workforce. It is practices in more than 30 provinces, an important livelihood for many poor, rural communities. About 200,000 to 300,000 people work in small-scale gold mining. In 2014, large and small-scale mines produced about 18 tons of gold with a market value of over US$700 million, according to official statistics. There are no reliable figures on small-scale gold mining because an estimated 90 percent of the gold is smuggled out of the country and not traded at the government-controlled buying stations. It is estimated that 70 to 80 percent of gold in the Philippines originates from small-scale gold mining. Almost all small-scale miners operate without a license outside government-designated lands, the so-called “people’s mining areas” where small-scale mining is permitted for miners holding a valid license. In practice, there are only four such areas in the whole country. In March 2015, the government revised the rules and regulations for small-

scale mining. In order to increase the number of legal mining operations, the government simplified the process for obtaining licenses and declaring people’s mining areas. The government also prohibited certain harmful mining practices, including the use of mercury and underwater (so-called compressor) mining. However, it did not mention child labor or reiterate the prohibition on child labor. Under Philippine law, the minimum age for work is 15, and hazardous work is prohibited for anyone under the age of 18. The Philippines has ratified international laws on child labor, in particular the International Labor Organization (ILO) Minimum Age Convention and the Worst Forms of Child Labor Convention which defines as hazardous all work underground, underwater and with hazardous substances. They are defined as among the worst forms of child labor. Since 2013, the Enhanced Basic Education Act mandates compulsory free education for all children in the Philippines until the age of 18. Still, child labor is common. Mainly due to family poverty, about 3 million children work in hazardous See labor, page A15

Arrest warrants out vs. 3 suspects on lumad slay in Surigao del Sur TANDAG CITY, Surigao del Sur--The warrants of arrest have already been issued against the primary suspects on the killings of three lumads in Surigao del Sur on September 1, 2015. P/Supt. Joseph Boquiren, PNP deputy provincial director for administra-

tion (DPDA) here, bared the information during the Peace and Order and Public Safety Committee Meeting chaired by Board Member Henrich Pimentel held at the Sangguniang Panlalawigan Session Hall on September 28. Boquiren, representing P/SSupt. Narciso Ver-

dadero, PNP provincial director, who was said to be out of town due to an official business, showed up at the Sangguniang Panlalawigan through the invitation of the Committee on Peace and Order and Public Safety, together with Col. Isidro Purisima, brigade commander of the 402nd

Infantry Brigade of the Philippine Army (PA). The police official identified the accused as Bobby Tejero, Loloy Tejero, and Garito Layno, who are facing charges of three counts of murder, robbery, grave coercion, and arson. No bail was recommended, he stressed.

We will not surrender – Tejero BUTUAN CITY--“We will not surrender,” this was the statement of Datu Bobby Tejero, one of the suspects in the killings of three people in Lianga, Surigao del Sur recently. In an exclusive interview with Philippine Information Agency (PIA) Caraga regional director Abner Caga,

Tejero admitted that they are former New People’s Army (NPA) rebels who veered away from the injustices and criminal activities of the communist group as well as atrocities against innocent civilians especially the lumads, which are in contrast to the rebels’ pro-people and pro-human

GSIS resets Stakeholders Dialogue in Surigao City TANDAG CITY, Surigao del Sur--The Government Service Insurance System (GSIS) has come out with a revised schedule of the “Stakeholders Dialogue” at the same venue and time at Philippine Gateway Hotel in Surigao City at 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. but resetting it on October 2, 2015. In an earlier communication, the said undertaking was supposed to take place on September 25, 2015. Belen Talita, GSIS Surigao City branch manager, in a letter to Governor Johnny Pimentel dated September 14, 2015, no longer cited the reason of postponement to this later date, however, the same purpose of holding the event was pointed out, saying “The dialogue aims to provide an update on the initiatives and reforms undertaken by GSIS, and to foster closer ties between GSIS and its stakeholders.” “As part of its thrust to promote service responsiveness and transparency, the GSIS Board of Trustees is instituting consultative meetings with its members

and pensioners nationwide,” she stated earlier. Talita likewise informed that “The dialogue will be conducted by President & General Manager Robert G. Vergara and other GSIS executives.” (Greg Tataro Jr., Radyo ng Bayan-Tandag/ PIA-Surigao del Sur)

rights claims. “We realized how fighting with them became a lost cause after experiencing suffering from the rotten system of the revolutionary organization,” he added. Tejero also claimed that they have around 1,500 armed baganis with 48 leaders ready to fight against the NPA rebels. “We will target all their legal fronts and we will not stop until they will be

decimated and defeated because they are the ones occupying our area,” said Tejero. “ They (NPA rebels) trained us to be fierce and fearless with the use of ammunition, we just want to give back what we have learned from them,” he added. He then accused the Malahutayong Pakigbisog Alang sa Sumusunod or MAPASU and the Alterna-

In this connection, Task Force Bangkaw headed by P/SSupt. Verdadero, was already created to go after the perpetrators allegedly responsible for the death of three lumad victims— Emerito Samarca, Dionel Campos, and Bello Sinzo, Boquiren added. The respective warrants

of arrest for the three accused were issued by Acting Presiding Judge Edwin Malazarte of Branch 28 of the Regional Trial Court (RTC) in Lianga, this province on September 22, 2015, it was learned. (Greg Tataro Jr., Radyo ng Bayan-Tandag/PIA-Surigao del Sur)

tive Learning Center for Agricultural and Livelihood Development, Inc. or ALCADEV as the legal fronts of the NPA. “These organizations are the ones manipulating the indigenous peoples. The MAPASU organization is also responsible in the mass evacuation of the lumads in Tandag City. We want to end this manipulation, because our brother lumads have long been wanted to go home,” said Tejero. Meanwhile, the warrants

of arrest have already been issued against sibling Datu Bobby and Loloy Tejero as well as Garito Layno, and several John Does of the bagani paramilitary group who were held responsible for the killings of ALCADEV executive director Emerito Samarca; MAPASU chair Dionel Campos; and civilian Aurello Sinzo last September 1 in Lianga. They are facing charges of three counts of murder, robbery, grave coercion, and arson. (FEA/PIA-Caraga)

You need to discover first yourself The Gospel of Jesus Christ (October1, 2015Thursday)Luke 12:54-59-And he said also to the people, When ye see a cloud rise out of the west, straightway ye say, There cometh a shower; and so it is. And when [ye see] the south wind blow, ye say, There will be heat; and it cometh to pass. [Ye] hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky and of the earth; but how is it that ye do not discern this time? Yea, and why even of yourselves judge

When thou goest with thine adversary to the magistrate, [as thou art] in the way, give diligence that thou mayest be delivered from him; lest he hale thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and the officer cast thee into “prison.” I tell thee, thou shall not depart thence, till thou hast paid the very last mite: Jesus criticized the people for being blind to the presence of Jesus in their midst.

A Teacher’s Sacrifice By Aisha Lea C. Daud Sultan Palao Ali Memorial Elementary School Tagoloan District. Division of Lanao del Norte

Teaching is a profession of self-sacrifice. It is a calling and not all have the will to do well in this profession. It needs passion, dedication, commitment, love and ultimate martyrdom. A teacher produce legacy through the achievements of her pupils. Sometimes, she has to sacrifice quality time for her family just to work extra hours in finishing lesson plans, preparing instructional materials, and studying her lessons. She is even called upon to become a mother willing to face harm just to protect the lives of her pupils, as if they were her own children. Teacher will always have a special place in the hearts of her pupils; most especially if such teacher has made great impact in their lives. She can be their best-friend or worst enemy depending on how she treats them. She can spice up their daily class session or make it a boring day. She can build or break their dreams. Thus, teachers have the power to prepare her pupils into new tomorrow or abandon their future. With this teacher has to be very careful in assessing and treating her pupils. She is accompanied with uncountable tasks and responsibility to her pupils. She needs to be a protector, facilitator, nurturer, disciplinarian, and molder. Ev-

ery day, she has to be the best teacher she can. She is a mother who guides her pupils, an older sister who disciplines her little brothers and sisters and lastly a best-friend who bonds and be part of their unforgettable happy moments. Certainly, being a teacher not just education the youth. It is also about adopting and nurturing other people’s children. It’s about sacrificing oneself for the sake of her pupils and trains them to be well-rounded, so as to thrive in this world. And so on this World’s Teacher Day, I would like to thank all my teachers from Kindergarten up to College. To my mother, Norhattah C. Daud Ed.D, who have been my model and inspired me to enter teaching profession, to the School Principal of SPAMES Anisah C. Palagawad for her moral support. To my Grade VI/Math Adviser, Ma’am Jasmin Tampos, now the principal of South I-A Central School, who led me into loving mathematics. And, to my High school English Teacher, Sir Mark Anthony Rosales, now works in Thailand, who showed me how to be passionate in teaching. Indeed, you are not just MY TEACHER but also MY HERO. THANK YOU AND HAPPY TEACHERS’ DAY!!

1st Brigada Eskwela 2015 Awarding Ceremony By Rasmila M. Cosain-Senior Education Program Specialist on Networking and Social Mobilization Division of Lanao del Norte

Gone are those days, when pupils in public schools have to spend their first week in school to clean their classrooms. Before, there were cases when pupils chose not to come in the first days of class just to avoid doing cleaning the rooms and raking the field. Thus, to avoid absenteeism and wasting of their precious time intended for learning, Brigada Eskwela is conducted on yearly basis. In an effort to improve public schools and bring out the spirit of the volunteerism to the community level as well as participation, the Department of Education (DepEd) annually launch National Schools Maintenance Week in the third week of May. According to DepEd Memo No. 41, Brigada Eskwela shall be conducted on May 18-23, 2015. With this mandate, stakeholders in education should work hand in hand to repair and prepare for the class opening. This is to assure that schools are safe and conducive place for pupils to learn. Over the years, the Brigada Eskwela had gained significant momentum due to more and

more volunteers joining the yearly event. Indeed, as time lapses, the participation rate of this activity has escalated. Brigada is not just a week-long cleaning-up and beautification exercise, but also a time for stakeholders in education to join force, get to know and bond with each other. In appreciation on the invaluable support of all the school stakeholders, the 1st Brigada Eskwela 2015 Awarding Ceremony was launched. This event was held on Wednesday, September 16, 2015 at Macapagal Training Center, Tubod, Lanao del Norte. It is an activity which aims to pay tribute to the stakeholders who have been our partners in the implementation of DepEd’s projects and programs. Without doubt, it is not easy to unite and gather all the stakeholders, but with the effort of all, this occasion is made possible. Brigada Eskwela 2015 Awarding Ceremony is seemingly a star-studded event. Governor Mohammad Khalid Q. Dimaporo, Vice Governor Maria Cristina N. Atay, and other stakeholders stayed up until the program ended. Emmalinda E. Duhaylungsod, CESO

A road less taken; a life worth living Team Posible traverses the unpredictable terrains of Intramuros, life For Mark Joseph ‘Aga’ Casidsid, 31, being visually impaired was not a hindrance to living and doing what he enjoys most, which is to run races.This disability, while it may have ended the will of many people to live and enjoy life, has allowed him to see just how beautiful and worth living life can truly be. His calvary began in 2003 when he lost his eyesight to Retinopathy of Prematurity or Retrolental Fibroplasia, a condition caused by premature birth, which results to gradual blindness. In fact, his running partner Edgardo Pelingo Jr., fondly called as Coach Gado, a former Architect/ Design and Construction Head from Primer Group of Companies, says that Aga even contemplated taking his own life. “Gusto na nga niyang mag-suicide eh(he wanted to commit suicide),” says 33-year-old Gado who has been running since 2007. “But his father was concerned about him. Sabi niya, baka raw pwede kong tulungan si Aga na tumakbo (He asked if I can help train Aga to run).” Though the request seemed challenging, Gado took up the task of training him. He started running with Aga who, despite his vulnerability, braved the steep terrains and, more importantly, the darkness that surrounded him.

“It took me about two weeks bago ko naturuan si Aga (it took me about two weeks before I was able to fully train Aga),” Gado adds. “Hindi koin-expect na madali siyang turuan. Nag-worry lang ako nung una kasi baka hindi kami magkarinigan pagnandun nasa race, namawala yung communication namin.Sinasabi ko pa kung kakanan o kakaliwa para ma-guide ko siya(I didn’t expect that training him was easy. At first, I was worried that we might not be able to communicate properly during the race. I had to coach him whether to turn left or right).” Both Gado and Aga use1-

2-3 and a-b-c-d as their running codes to guide them through the marathons they participate in. The codes one, two and three refer to the speed while a,b,c and d refer to their position (left, right, front, back). Aside from these codes, Gado ensures that they are mentally and physically ready before the gunstart. Gado says, “Before, sabay pa kaming tumatakbo gamit yung codes. Para mas maalalayan ko siya, nakatali siya sakin. Pero nung nagtagal, pakiramdaman nalang kami. Siya yung tumatakbo sa harap ko. (Before, Aga and I would use the codes everytime we join a race. To

further guide him through the tracks, I would tie a rope to his waist to keep him close to me.After some time, we just anticipated each other’s next move).” With this, the Center for Outdoor Recreation and Expedition (CORE)—the advocacy arm of Primer Group—acknowledged the collaborative effort exerted by coach Gado in training Aga to run. Now, they are officially recognized as Team Posible, bearing truth that even the most unfortunate circumstances like blindness may give birth to moments of triumph. In fact, Gado and Aga recently joined the Salomon See road, page A15

Dr. Dennis Jaffe and Francis Kong at FEEC 2015

Int’l family biz experts to speak in family enterprise confab “Creating the right climate for succession in family businesses is the most important thing a family should do,” said Dr. Dennis Jaffe who is set to speak in the 3rd Family Enterprise Excellence Conference (FEEC) on October 26 at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Cebu City. Jaffe said the conference is going to bring families together to consider how they are creating the next generation in their respective business. “What are they doing together and what is it they can do to create and build a creative, energized, inspired and entrepreneurial next generation?” “This is something that families want and the challenge is that many times they want it but they don’t actually know what to do and how to do it,” said Jaffe. Jaffe is a renowned international family business consultant with longstanding engagements with clients in Asia including the Philippines. He is also one of the founders of Family Firm Institute, a global network of thought-leaders in the field of family enterprise. The event will also be graced by Francis Kong, renowned inspirational speaker and serial entrepreneur with extensive

work experience in manufacturing and retail. Kong is also with the Inspire Leadership Consultancy which is one of the main sponsors of FEEC. The conference is organized by Premier Family Business Consulting Inc. (PFBC), the only family business consulting firm in Southeast Asia providing holistic services that integrates the family and business system and champions family unity as a core value. According to PFBC Founder Jon Ramos, succession is just one of the problems facing family businesses. Challenges such as business longevity, family dynamics, and preserving family wealth hound families in business, he said. In the Philippines, 70 percent of the top twenty companies are owned or acquired by families. Meanwhile, 90 percent of businesses worldwide are owned by families. Ramos underscored the importance of family businesses, saying their survival has serious implications in terms of local employment and the economy as a whole.

City Trail Manila 2015, a loop run that provides unconventional challenges like running up the stairs, bridges and ramps, in the historic Intramuros in Manila. This run aims to elevate the running experience by bringing the trail to an urban landscape. The Salomon race is just one of the running events that Team Posible joined in. To support their running adventures in and outside the country, CORE has been partnering with The North Face and the Recreational Outdoor Exchange (ROX)— the largest outdoor sports and recreation superstore in Southeast Asia—for their needed apparel, footwear and other supporting equipment as well as their race registrations. According to Tin Villaflor, program manager of C.O.R.E., Team Posible opens possibilities for individuals who want to beat the odds, for people who want to go beyond the limits as they participate in various kinds of sporting activities in and outside the Philippines. “Team Posible originally refers to the relationship that coach Gado and Aga have. With this campaign, we hope to also enjoin the most vulnerable Filipinos to find their own adventure for themselves and have a renewed zest for life and personal adventure,” Villaflor says. Gado adds, “Gusto naming itong ituloy. Goal namin is dumami yung mga tulad niya (Aga), na maipakita sa lahat na ang mga disabled kaya nang makipagsabayan sa mga abled. Dito papasok yung inspiration, yun bang makita ng iba na kayang tumakbo ng mga tulad niya. (Our goal is to invite more people who are as special as Aga to show that even

disabled individuals can compete with the abled. This is where inspiration comes in—we’d like everyone to see that people like Aga can also run like they do).” For his part, Aga asserts that running has become his outlet to feel alive again, proving that regardless of his condition he will be able to make his every run an adventure in life. “Para samgakatuladko, sanalumabassilasabox, yung malaman nila ang purpose nila kung bakit nagpatuloy pa rin yung buhay nila. Sana ma-enjoy din nila yung buhay nila dahil nakakapaginspire sila ng ibang tao (For individuals who are like me, I hope they go outside their boxes and realize their purpose for living. I hope they make the most out of their lives because other people are inspired by their determination to live),” Aga says. Aga concludes, “Ang race naman talaga is challenging eh, pero ang adventure manggagaling sa start hanggang sa finish line. Sana mahanap rin ng iba yung adventure na hinahanap nila kasi ako, nakita ko na(a race is always challenging, but the adventure comes from the start to the finish line. Hopefully, other people will be able to find their own adventure because I finally found mine).”

Western Union and BPI to boost money transfer across the world with international direct-to-bank service MAKATI CITY, Philippines-The Western Union Company (NYSE:WU), a leader in global remittance services announced an agreement with the Bank of the Philippine Islands (PSE: BPI) to promote a more simplified way for overseas Filipinos to send money straight to their loved ones’ bank accounts back home—direct-to-bank money transfer services. Western Union, the first to introduce money transfers, and BPI, one of the first banks in Southeast Asia, collaborate to add yet another milestone to the remittance industry. The international direct-to-bank service allows BPI account holders to access their remittances through nearly 820 BPI branches in the country and its offices and remittance centers across the globe. “Western Union is transforming our business in response to consumers’ needs, providing speed, reliability, and convenience in the most accessible of ways.
