Duterte says it’s likely Binay vs Grace in Presidential race

CAGAYAN de Oro City–– Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte says he does not see himself as a candidate in the 2016 Presidential elections due to financial constraints and “winnability” in what he believes will eventually be a two-way race between Vice President Jejomar Binay and Senator Grace Poe. But the race could be three-way, he said, if Local Governments Secretary Mar Roxas catches up. “I see only two individuals, Grace (Poe) and Binay. Three persons if Mar (Roxas) can catch up because Binay is spinning out of the loop,” Duterte told a

gathering of judges, lawyers who gave him a testimonial dinner at the N Hotel here Saturday. Duterte, mayor of Davao City from1988 (except from 1998 to 2001 when he served as Davao City 1st district representative to Congress and 2010 to 2013 when he served as vice mayor to his daughter-mayor, Sara), said he would retire from politics after completing his term on June 30, 2016. “I do not see myself as of now as a candidate,” Duterte told reporters in Cagayan de Oro. Duterte said he has See race, page A11

DAVAO City––Mindanao will soon attain sufficient power supply with the addition of more renewable energy projects with a combined potential capacity of 2,998 megawatts (MW), an official said.

Romeo M. Montenegro, director for the Investment Promotion and Public Affairs Office of the Mindanao Development Authority (MinDA), said this would happen if government approved the 288 pending

renewable energy projects, which are now in various stages of applications. Montenegro, speaking at Media Power 101 in Davao City on Thursday, cited that in April and July this year, two companies held the

groundbreaking for their hydropower projects. One was the P13-billion hydropower project of Aboitiz Power in Barangay Maluko, Manolo Fortich in Bukidnon. The other was the 2.4-

MW minihydro power plant of the Euro Hydro Power Holdings in Barangay Andap, New Bataan, in Compostela Valley. The project in Manolo Fortich comprises two units, with installed capacities of

43.4 MW (unit 1) and 25.4 MW (unit 2). It will tap the Tagaloan River, which is classified by the National Water Resources Board as the 13th largest river system in the Philippines.

of new bingo sites this year, Bantug said the company’s electronic bingo machines are expected to reach over 8,400 from the current 7,700 machines. Each bingo boutique operates 70 machines. “We are in the process of acquiring as companies come to us, same time we are opening new sites,” said LWRC Investor Relations Officer Freddie Reyes. Apart from setting up more bingo sites and gaming zones, Bantug said this year’s capex will also be

spent for the expansion of Midas Hotel and Casino project. “Within the capacity of the building, we are expanding the gaming area. We are continuously improving the facility. We are putting in more banquet areas for the hotel,” he said. Meanwhile, the company

also announced a plan to expand its business process outsourcing (BPO) building project in Makati City called Techzone. The project houses the licensees and locators of LRWC’s subsidiary, First Cagayan Leisure and Resources Corp. “We are able to lease out all the available spaces in a

very short time so the demand is there. So definitely it sounds like a very good project to do a second one,” said Bantug. “(Leasable spaces) are still insufficient for their needs. There are a lot of inquiries for additional Techzone,” added Reyes. (PNA) CTB/LDV

Misor lawmakers ‘snob’ inquiry on illegal gambling Bukidnon • Camiguin • Lanao del Norte • Lanao del Sur • Misamis Occidental • Misamis Oriental

By CRIS DIAZ Executive Editor

MISAMIS Oriental--Majority of the members of the provincial board in Misamis Oriental ‘snob’ the scheduled inquiry about the proliferation of illegal gambling in the province. The Sangguniang Panlalawigan (SP) has set a schedule to hear the alleged proliferation of the

illegal gambling in Misamis Oriental during a regular session Thursday last week – only three SP members showed up. Vice Governor Joey Pelaez, who arrived in the SP about 3 PM, waited in exasperation for the other SP members to show up until he decided to forego the session past 4 p.m. as the brownout hit the provincial capitol.

Pelaez has expressed concerned over reports about the proliferation of the illegal gambling in Misamis Oriental and has the SP agenda the issue last week in aid of legislation. He said that the illegal gambling in Misamis Oriental has already become rampant that the province has to call an inquiry together with stakeholders to get a clear view of the issue.

Filipinos recruit them for employment aboard but were later on duped into transporting illegal drugs,” said Belmonte, Chairman of the House Committee on Dangerous Drugs. Belmonte said of the 1,288 Filipinos who were arrested for drug-related offenses, 41 are facing the death penalty. Filipinos who are in the death row include 18 in Malaysia, 21 in China, one in Saudi Arabia and one in Indonesia, Mary Jane Veloso, who was given a temporary reprieve by Indonesian President Joko Widodo, Belmonte said. Mary Jane was apprehended in 2010 in Yogyakarta, Indonesia upon her arrival from Malaysia for transporting 2.6 kilograms of heroin concealed in her luggage. Belmonte said a Nige-

rian syndicate based in Malaysia is behind the recruitment of Filipinas as drug couriers to China. “In one incident, a Filipina was even apprehended carrying 9 capsules of heroin in her privates, 48 capsules in her rectum and 11 capsules in her intestine,” Belmonte said. The bill defines recruiter as person who is using his or her influence, power or position in canvassing, enlisting, contracting, transporting, utilizing, hiring persons to be a drug courier. He said the death penalty proposal seeks to amend Section 5, which pertains to the Sale, Trading, Administration, Dispensation, Delivery, Distribution and Transportation of Dangerous Drugs and Controlled Precursors and Essential Chemicals under RA 9165.

Solon: death penalty for recruiters of drug couriers By Lorelei V. Castillo

A lawmaker has filed a bill imposing death penalty against recruiters of Filipino drug couriers, many of whom were arrested and languishing in jail in other countries. Rep. Vicente F. Belmonte Jr. (Lone District, Iligan City) said House Bill 5874 seeks to amend Republic Act 9165, otherwise known as the “Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 1992.” Belmonte said despite the continuing campaign of law enforcement agencies against the illicit trade, drug syndicates have become fearless and resourceful in plying their nefarious trade utilizing drug couriers. “Some drug couriers who were apprehended here and abroad told police authorities that fellow

“It is only by making a holistic assessment of the illegal gambling issue that the law enforcers and the provincial government could implement an objective solution to the problem,” a law enforcer said. The police station commanders of the province 23 towns and the two component cities of El Salvador in the west and Gingoog in the east were present in the provincial session hall together with the police provincial director last Thursday. Raul Regundola, branch manager of the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) in Northern Mindanao, together with PCSO staff were also present in the Sangguniang session hall. At p ast 4 p.m. l ast Thursday, Pelaez forewent the scheduled regular session for lack of quorum as

the rotating brownout hit the SP session hall, too. Pelaez said that the members of the provincial board held a session in the town of Medina, east of Misamis Oriental, Thursday morning to tackle about a local town ordinance that involved the SP members. The police station commanders of the province 23 towns and the two component cities of El Salvador in the west and Gingoog in the east were present in the provincial session hall together with the police provincial director last Thursday. Raul Regundola, branch manager of the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) in Northern Mindanao, together with PCSO staff were also present in the Sangguniang session hall. Regondula complaints about the unabated ille-

gal gambling operations in Misamis Oriental and sought the assistance of the SP and the provincial police command to put an end to the malady. He said that the illegal gambling operations in the region are operating like a real PCSO outlets through the “Suertres,” an illegal number game, patterned after the result of the PCSO’s “Suertres.” He said that the PCSO in Northern Mindanao earned as much as Php 65 million to Php 85 million a month, the larger revenues come from “Suertres.” The proliferation of the illegal gambling operations has cut down the PCSO’s monthly income by more than 50 percent. “This has prompted the PCSO to also cut the financial aid to the poor and to the local government units by half,” Regondula said.

Entry of Rufus, sudden death of Moreno’s career

DOLLY PELONE Comptroller

EDITOR: ALLAN MEDIANTE • amediante@gmail.com

Your article the “Church and its Political Doctrine” (Aug. 3, 2015, Mindanao Daily News issue) hits the nail on the head. The Church, no matter what sect and for whatever reason, should get rid of politics. The Church should not allow its institution as an indirect spokesperson or campaign instrument of political candidates. On the other hand, the Church should strictly carry out its ecclesiastical obligation by enriching the spiritual advancement of its parishioners. Any suspicion of the Church involvement in politics would lead to the insinuation that the Church leaders have become the lackey of crooked politicians.

The CYNOSURE

Cris Diaz

Anyway, we are not through about the prospect of political shuffling in Cagayan De Oro City. While we have a presumptive discussion of the possible role of the Rodriguez’ in the local political arena, we did not outline the possible political lineup yet. For instance, under a one-onone political confrontation, the Dongkoy Emano-Oca Moreno encounter is the most popular. What makes the Emano-Moreno clash classic is that the other candidate has to prove that he convincingly won the 2013 mayoral elections. The local opposition has the common sentiment that the incumbent Mayor won the 2013 elections under “suspicious” circumstance. The allegation, however, remains unsubstantiated. However, the suspicion heightened when

the Commissions on Elections (COMELEC) spiked the protest filed by the opposition against Moreno. Thus, the result of the rematch between Emano and Moreno in the 2016 mayoral elections would certainly close the issue. If for one reason or another, the Rodriguez group would join the local political fracas for the mayoral post, the election in Cagayan De Oro City would become a three-cornered-fight. The entry of Rodriguez is a sudden death of Moreno’s political career. It does not matter whether Rodriguez would run under the administration political party. After all, a top campaign operator of Rodriguez said that the Rodriguez group was instrumental in Moreno’s victory in the 2013 mayoral polls. While Moreno is reportedly wooing the support of the Roman Catholic Church and the Jesuit-run local university, the university would certainly throw an all-out support to its illustrious son, Rufus Rodriguez. Rufus edged over Moreno because the latter is a scholar and an alumnus of the Jesuit-run University in Cagayan De Oro City. Moreno might have studied in the local university during his high school days, but he finished

Think a minute… I read about a young mother who had left her baby on the side of the road. Two days later the baby girl was found. She was still breathing, but it was too late to save her. None of us would be alive today if we hadn’t been fed and cared for by our families. Before you were born, God planned for you to be a part of His family. The Bible tells the true story of God building His family in the world. God has done everything He can for us to join His family so He can share all He has with us as His children. Every human was created by God, but not everyone is a child of God. The only way to get into God’s family is by being born again into it. You become part of the human family by your first birth, but you become part of God’s family by your second birth. Your spiritual family is even more important than your physical family because it will last forever. As babies we’re completely helpless, so we depend on our parents to protect, nurture, and teach us. And it’s the same with us who are spiritually born as a baby child of God. It doesn’t matter if we’re grown adults, we must be fed and taught how to live our new life with Jesus. As we start life all over again, we need to be encouraged by our spiritual brothers and sisters who help us grow and learn to live Jesus’ way, not our own. Children of God must become part of a church that believes and obeys the whole Bible and only the Bible, since it is our Maker’s manual explaining how to live correctly. Our spiritual family loves and personally knows Jesus is God the Son who died and came back to

“If you focus on results, you will never change. If you focus on change, you will get results.” Jack Dixon - American author

Juvy Sarraga

A good example of this thought process is weight loss. If we focused on losing ten pounds, the action steps would get lost. If we decided to get healthier and begin

walking 30 minutes, then we begin to see results. Suppose you decide to eliminate sugar in your diet. Not only will you see weight loss, you will see blood test results change as well. This strategy can be transfered to an goal or outcome that you are attempting. So remember, look at changes in your behavior and habits fir your focus; see results.

UN Special Rapporteur wants IP rights in law protecting IDPs DAVAO City -- The United Nations Special Rapporteur on the human rights of internally displaced persons, has called on legislators to include the rights of indigenous peoples (IPs) in House Bill No. 4744, a measure that seeks to protect the rights of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs). Chaloka Beyani, UN special rapporteur, made the suggestion in his report following his 10-day trip to the country, which

included a visit to the Lumads (Indigenous Peoples) who have sought refuge for months now in the Haran compound of the United Church of Christ in the Philippines (UCCP) here. Bayani was in the country from July 21 to 31. Beyani lamented how the IPs are affected by the long-standing conflicts between military forces and the New Peoples Army (NPA), eventually resulting to their displacement from their ancestral homes.

“This situation clearly demonstrates the massive and potentially irreversible impact of the ongoing conflicts on displacement of such vulnerable communities who are often caught up in the conflict and suspected of involvement with armed groups,” Beyani said in his July 31, 2015 Statement on the human rights of IDPs, on the conclusion of his 10-day visit in the country. Beyani said Lumads’ cultures and ways of life are part of rich and diverse heritage of the country that if not protected from displacement caused by conflict or development will be “otherwise lost, perhaps forever.” At least 700 Lumads from Talaingod and Kapalong in Davao del Norte and San Fernando in Bukidnon fled their homes after they were allegedly dis-

placed by military operations. Last July 23, an interagency group was formed to return the Lumads to their respective areas, leading to a confrontation between Lumad leaders and law enforcers. The Lumads refused to leave, alleging militarization in their communities has not stopped. The interagency group was composed of the Commission on Human Rights (CHR), National Commission on Indigenous Peoples (NCIP), Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD), and Davao City Police Office (DCPO). Davao City Police Office (DCPO) spokesperson Senior Insp. Milgrace Driz said Mayor Rodrigo Duterte provided 10 buses and 12 trucks coming from the local goverment units where the Lumads came from. ‘Deeply affected’ B e y a n i a d d e d t h at the Lumads are poorly equipped to survive away from ancestral lands “and

Act (IPRA) and other institutions cannot provide the IPs protection from displacement unless fully implemented in practice. The rapporteur added that since the country has long faced the threats of disasters and effects of long-standing conflicts, it is necessary that the bill, stalled for at least a decade already, be passed. Wrong signal In his statement, he discussed that the measure has been adopted in 2013 but was vetoed by President Benigno Aquino III allegedly on the grounds of unconstitutionality that need clarification. “As the technicalities concerning this proposed law seem to have been resolved, it is urgent to pass this Bill into law at the earliest opportunity without further delay,” he added. “Not to do so sends a wrong signal about the commitment of the Government to ensuring the rights of IDPs, whether displaced by natural disaster, conflict or development and withholds essential legal protection from them,” he said. If passed into law, he said the measure will set a clear cut provisions on the rights of internally displaced individuals. “It would help to remove existing administrative gaps, obstacles and uncertainties and establish criminal responsibility for acts of arbitrary displacement by both State and non-State actors,” he said.

Beyani noted that the Lumads stressed that they want to return to their communities but only if the military forces are pulled out and they are guaranteed “safety, dignity, and protection.” “They described to me their concerns including their alleged forced recruitment into paramilitar y groups, known as Alamara, under the auspices of the AFP and harassment in the context of the ongoing conflict between the AFP and the NPA,” he said.

Reasons why Sports activities should be encouraged in schools By Miretes D. Rodriguez T-III Bonifacio National High School Liloan, Bonifacio, Misamis Occidental Secondary PESS Coordinator

Sports is defined as an activity involving physical exertion and skill in which an individual or team competes against another or others for entertainment. This field gets an interest among children especially during school years. It is because during this period, Sports is more encouraged. Technicalities and theories on different kind of Sports activities are even discussed under Physical Education of MAPEH subject. It is an educational course related to the physique of the human body and encourages psychomotor learning in a play or movement exploration setting to promote health. There are more in Sports, however. Kids who are active in school sports are fitter, have healthier body weights and are more confident. The risk of blood pressure, heart disease, osteoporosis and other chronic diseases is lower among physically active people, which makes it all the more important for children to appreciate the importance of physical activity at a young age. Participation in school sports provides a sense of belonging and being part of a team or group. A student interact with his peers in a friendly manner. He learn to consider the interests of his teammates and to practice mutual respect and cooperation. They work

together, share time and other resources, take turns to play and learn to cope with success and failure as a team. These interactions facilitate bonding and lasting friendships with his schoolmates, which can help make children more sociable and outgoing as they grow.

More to that, New York Times research also proved that schools that offer and support Sports produce higher number of graduates. So, there must be no reason to some speculations that schools that emphasize sports do so at the expense of other educational goals. Thus, getting into Sports should not be discouraged by parents. Instead, they should support their children in fostering their athletic skills and abilities. plan, Psd-09-048075 being a portion of lot 4434, Pls-119; Pagadian Public Land Subdivision situated at Danlugan, Pagadian City.

GENERAL Santos City--The city is now the record holder for the world’s largest fish display, officials here said, although Guinness World Records has yet to make the official announcement. Organizers of the annual Tuna Festival here said Thursday the Guinness World Records has finally approved the city’s display of around 25.5 metric tons (MT) of tuna on Sept. 11 last year as a new world record. The world record bid was the highlight of the 2014 or 16th Tuna Festival, which was co-organized by the city government and the Philippine Fisheries Development Authority (PFDA)-General Santos Fish Port Complex (GSFPC). Paris Ayon, food safety chief of the GSFPC and 16th Tuna

Festival assistant director, said they earlier got wind of Guinness’ decision in a note posted at its website. “We saw it in its dashboard so we immediately verified it with Guinness,” he told MindaNews. The festival’s secretariat noted that a Guinness representative later confirmed the matter in response to an email inquiry that it sent. “I can confirm that your record is approved with the following text: The largest fish display consists of 25,594.49 kg (56,426 lb 3 oz) of yellowfin tuna and was achieved by the City of General Santos (Philippines) in General Santos City, South Cotabato, Philippines, on 11 September 2014. A certificate was sent to you,” read Guinness’ email confirmation as posted in

the festival’s Facebook page. Guinness, however, has not yet made an official announcement of the feat that is usually posted in its website. “We’re also waiting for the copy of the certificate so we can make an official declaration,” Ayon said. He confirmed that the city officials have initially signified to put up a marker of the world record at the city fish port complex in Barangay Tambler. The world record bid was made last year by fish port workers who were able to display and weigh around 33,610 kilograms or 33.61 MT in about 15 minutes. Such figure was based on official records of the PFDA-GSFPC. As early as 5 a.m., workers at

the city fish port complex started unloading various tuna species from around 20 fishing boats that landed at the port. Each fishing boat unloaded an average 60 pieces of tuna that weighed about 20 kilograms and above. The freshly-landed tuna were initially displayed at the bidding tables of the fishport’s market 1 and later weighed by the workers with the use of Azuki digital weighing scales. The event was not witnessed by an adjudicator from Guinness but the entire activity was properly documented through official records, photographs and videos. Personnel from the AMA Computer College here documented the weighing of the tuna catches.

Guinness has no specific world record for the largest fish display but it acknowledged the largest seafood display established by Schmidt Zeevis and Wichter Steller of Schmidt Zeevis in Rotterdam, Netherlands on June 26, 2011. The display consisted of 2,271.7 kg or 5,008 lb of seafood that was achieved with the help of executive chef Erik Troost and his team on the Lido deck of the SS Rotterdam, Guinness said. Dubbed the “Tuna Capital of the Philippines,” the city is currently the country’s top source of fresh and processed tuna exports. It is home to six of the country’s seven tuna canneries and other related ventures that generate average annual export receipts of nearly US$ 300 million.

Mindanao power consumers brace for longer brownouts COTABATO City--Power consumers in North Cotabato and elsewhere in Mindanao are bracing for longer power interruption until the early part of August, the local electric cooperative on Saturday said. Vincent Baguio, speaking for the Cotabato Electric Cooperative, said the preventive maintenance on government-owned hydro power plants in Bukidnon and Lanao del Sur and the shutting down of STEAG power plant in Misamis Oriental will last until August 16. “With that, power rationing will continue in the franchise area of Cotelco,” he said. Cotelco serves the city of Kidapawan and the towns of Makilala, Tulunan, Mlang, Magpet, President Roxas, Antipas, Arakan, Matalam and Kabacan. Agus power plants 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 in Lanao del Sur and Pulangi 4 hydro electric power plant in Bukidnon have slowed down production due to low water level. Also undergoing preventive maintenance was the Mt. Apo Unit 1 geothermal power plant in Kidapawan City owned by the Energy Development Corporation (EDC). Cotelco has been rationing power from three to four hours a day depending on the amount of energy provided by through the National Grid Corporation

of the Philippines. Baguio said Cotelco buys an average of at least 11 megawatt from the National Power Corporation (NPCs) hydro-electric plants; 8 megawatt from Therma Marine Incorporated in Maco, Compostela Valley; and 5 megawatt from Mt. Apo geothermal power to complete its power requirement of 24 megawatt. From normal 11 megawatt supply from hydro power plants, Cotelco received only 9 megawatt in July. Power rationing is not only happening in North Cotabato but in all power cooperatives in the island. Baguio has appealed to all power consumers to start conserving energy, emphasizing power consumers have great roles to play in energy conservation. He advised consumers to “put off electric lights when not in use, reduce the use of air conditioning units unless necessary, among others.” The Mindanao Power Monitoring Committee (MPMC) reported that the water levels of Lake Lanao and Agus and Pulangi dams continued to drop the past three days. As of Friday, the water level has breached critical points based on data from the National Power Corporation (NAPOCOR) Mindanao Generation. See longer, page A11

Central Mindanao farmers catch planting season with FAO assistance MAGUINDANAO--Agriculture-dependent families in Maguindanao are still reeling from the residual impact of conflict, drought and flooding that affected the province in succession during the first half of 2015. In order to meet the first cropping season of the year, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) has launched emergency response efforts that will enable farmers to seize the small window of opportunity to re-plant their farms, and avoid at least eight more months without sufficient food and income. “We were in an evacuation center for about three months. This [displacement] had a huge effect on us farmers. We had to leave

our farms and backyard gardens. Our crops were destroyed by drought. We were not able to sell most of our livestock as they died either of hunger or disease,” recalled Tuka Sumalay, a farmer from Tapikan, Shariff Aguak. Tuka is one of more than 125,000 people uprooted across the 15 municipalities of Maguindanao when hostilities broke out between the Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters and the Government in February. Re-establishing a sense of normalcy has been a challenge for the majority who rely on farming as their primary source of livelihood. Farmers had no choice but to abandon their readyto-harvest crops as they

fled to safer grounds. Upon returning to their homes, they not only lost their productive farm assets such as tools, small machinery and animals, but they were also confronted by a dry spell, followed by flooding caused by torrential rains and overflowing rivers and tributaries. The Department of Agriculture estimates that crop and vegetable production losses in Maguindanao have reached more than 24 000 metric tonnes as a result of these natural and humaninduced disasters. To support the government in responding to farmers’ most time-critical needs for agriculture inputs, FAO allocated USD 470 000 to help 5 000 farming house-

holds or 25,000 individuals in Maguindanao and North Cotabato provinces resume the production of rice, corn and vegetables. “We are working closely with the Department of Agriculture and Fisheries in the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao to enable affected farmers to get back on their feet at the soonest possible opportunity. The restoration of livelihoods and agricultural production in a timely manner is a crucial first step to restoring food security in the area,” said FAO Representative in the Philippines José Luis Fernandez. Through the project, FAO will distribute a total of 1 410 sacks of rice See farmers, page A11

Effective Teachers Embracing the K12 Curriculum By MARTINO MORAN ORTEGA, JR. Teacher WEST CITY CENTRAL SCHOOL

“How to be an effective teacher to my pupils in this K12 curriculum that the Department of Education want me to embrace?” teachers often ask themselves , this question play and rock the everyday living of the educator in facing the challenges that the department wants us to follow. How they can best influence their pupils to learn and achieve the objectives that they have set for them from day to day, including the longer term goals. The teacher’s knowledge of content and know how to teach effectively, their knowledge of how pupils learn; the teacher’s learning practices that support learning, including the learning experiences

they provide, greatly affect the learning of the pupils. Teacher attributes and contribute to the growth in the learning process of the pupils for example, the teacher’s verbal facility, and the ability to be analytical, reflective and effective in their lessons and so on. Teacher set objectives, plan the everyday lessons, assess the needs of the pupils, do the other activities that will make the pupils a well round individual and improving teaching practices based on the given K12 curriculum framework. In all of these activities, teachers continue to learn and keep themselves acquainted with development and the emerging concerns

Faith is your connection to God Special Gospel of the day (Augsut4, 2015-Tuesday) Luke 17:5-10” Be thou plucked up by the root, and be thou planted in the sea; and it should obey you. But which of you, having a servant plowing or feeding cattle, will say unto him by and by, when he is come from the field, Go and sit down to meat? And will not rather say unto him, Make ready wherewith I may sup, and gird thyself, and “serve “ me, till I have eaten and drunken; and afterward thou shall eat and drink? Doth he thank that servant because he did the things that were commanded him? I throw not. So likewise ye, when ye shall have done all those things which are commanded you, say, we are unprofitable servants: we have done that which was our duty to do: The request of the apostles to increase their faith must be imitated by all of us. Personally, in all my prayers I ask God to increase my faith for me to hold on despite of the “adversities” I will encounter in life.

Biblical reflection

Bro. Edcel L. Closas

Hebrews 11:1”Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Why faith is very vital in our lives? Hebrews 11:6”But without faith [it is] impossible to please Him. Take note, your faith is your connection to God and the greater faith do you have is the greater connection to God. Remember, a man without faith has no salvation to be obtained after this life. Do not give up your faith if you are in worst circumstances in your journey in life: Printing paid by: Neneth Ranoa - Bobong Balino- Edith Ranoa, PhD- Tony Jordan – Cagayan De Oro: My new number: 09187148435: God loves you!!!

in education. The teachers themselves are learners in the process even as they continue to influence effective learning. Today, we see, teachers as facilitators of the learning process and as directors of learning conditions and environment for learning. Pupils must be equipped with skills to learn how to learn in the new curriculum that we have in the department. Despite of the various factors that affects the teacher-learning transactions between teachers and pupil, teachers do make extraordinary and lasting impact on the lives of the pupils. According to the study on teacher effectiveness confirmed that specific teacher character-

istics and behaviours, and basic classroom techniques and etcetera contribute to learning outcomes and to continuing the growth in pupils learning. Teachers use multimedia and other gadgets (tablet, touchscreen cellular phones, netbook/ notebook/laptop and iPod/ iPad) that facilitate learning, and with the help of the Text 2 Teach facility to enhance learning for the pupils as well. When we talk about effective teacher, we talk about the competency, qualities, the experiences, the traits, behaviours and the dispositions that are typically evident in effective teacher, attributes such as ideal, analytical, dutiful, competent,

expert, reflective, satisfying, responsible and respectful have been used to describe good teachers. It draws on the number of skills and qualities and categorize into: prerequisites of effective teaching; classroom management; teacher as person and teaching and

learning process. Teacher effectiveness, indeed, can be influenced or affected by a combination of several personal, professional and technological factors. Teachers therefore need to be lifelong learners as well as self- renewing individuals.

Centuries-old beauty secret revealed by modern science: Fine Pearl Coix Extract Powder makes skin radiant For hundreds of years, the Chinese and Japanese have been harnessing the nutritional benefits of coix, a type of grass that produces an edible seed. This plant is grown widely in Southeast Asia, India and China, and is used as a food source by both humans and animals. Coix has a hard seed, which is polished to release a white grain, which has been described as pearl barley. This grain is consumed as a supplement for a number of conditions, including stiffness, edema, and urinary infections. It is even prescribed as a treatment for skin conditions, including acne, or as a tonic to promote beautiful skin, hair and nails and to improve one’s complexion. However, this grain is hard and needs to be cooked for a long time to soften it. An easy way to incorporate coix into one’s daily diet is with Fine Pearl Coix Extract Powder.

Unless, the incumbent Mayor has a card hidden under his sleeves, it would be an uphill battle for him to fight both Emano and Rodriguez in a three-cornered showdown. Thus, in a three-corneredpolitical scuffle, the political battlefield would tilt to an Emano-Rodriguez skirmish – leaving Moreno behind the comfort of dirt. Now, the situation would exacerbate if a “dark horse” would gallop in the dead of the night while the political war rages. These mayoral timbers are simply watching and listening in the background.

Being part of God’s family means we not only worship Him in church services with our lips, but we worship God everyday with our life by putting Him first in everything. Our whole character and way of living changes. For example, we become honest no matter what we can get away with. We also love, forgive, and serve other people as Jesus did. So why not ask Jesus to forgive you for living your own way and to come into your life?

Montenegro said most of the renewable energy projects are investments in hydropower. He said 15 Mindanao provinces are viable for biomass projects and 15 for small hydropower plants. The official said he hopes that at least 100 MW to 200 MW more will be approved within the year and at least 200 MW deployed between 2016 and 2020. He said Mindanao still has several potential renewable energy projects that can meet the island’s power demand until 2030. However, aside from the two-year construction timeframe, renewable energy investors have to spend three to five years in processing their applications before 13 regulatory agencies. With the One-Stop Facilitation and Monitoring Center (OSFMC) now in place, Montenegro said they have talked with the permitting agencies in a bid to shorten the application period. The OSFMC was set up as one of the recommendations of the Mindanao stakeholders during the Mindanao Power Summit in April 2012 to address the clamor of investors for a more seamless application process. The One-Stop Facilitation and Monitoring Web Portal was also set up so that investors can monitor their applications in a specific agency through real-time online updating of status. A Mindanao Power Monitoring Committee (MPMC) was created to “spearhead and coordinate efforts of government and power industry stakeholders to improve the power situation” in the island. “What we’re doing now is we assist and facilitate to encourage investors to come in,” Montenegro added. The Agus and Pulangui hydropower complexes supply at least 55 percent of the total Mindanao power mix. Montenegro said they want a balanced power in Mindanao – 50 percent from hydro and 50 percent from fuel. The Mindanao grid cannot heavily rely on hydropower since it relies on ample rainfall, while fuel like coal is imported and depends on prices in the global market. Montenegro said they want to heed the global clamor for lessening the use of coal since it is a finite source of power. He said they are eyeing the oceans as a potential power source. According to the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines, the system

capacity of the Mindanao grid was at 1,192 MW while the demand was 1,366 MW, with a power deficit at 174 MW as of 1 pm Thursday. Since 2001, Luzon was able to construct 4,000 MW and Visayas 2,000 MW, which are enough to support the developments happening on both islands. Mindanao only had less than 300 MW. Seeing Mindanao’s dire lack of power, more investors are coming in but Montenegro explained this will mean higher costs on the part of consumers. (Antonio L. Colina IV/MindaNews)

second thoughts about running for President, citing financial constraints and “winnability” against the other contenders. He said a recent survey showed his ratings drop against other presidential candidates from 15 percent to five percent. “My chances for winning now is only one percent and a half percent after my ratings drop from 15 percent to five percent,” Duterte said. Duterte did not say which group conducted the survey and when. But he ranked third among 10 possible Presidential candidates in the Asia Pulse survey from May 30 to June 5, and fourth in the Social Weather Stations (SWS) survey of June 5 to 8, with only one per cent difference, against Roxas. Duterte said he cannot expect financial help from his political party, Partido Demokratiko Pilipino, which he described as “cash-strapped with no big financial backers.” Catch up He said Roxas can catch up with Poe and Binay with President Aquino’s endorsement last Friday. “Roxas can now go campaign around the country saying he has the backing of President Aquino. That is a big deal,” Duterte said. Roxas was supposed to have run for President in 2010 but slid down to the Vice Presidency in favor of Aquino, who was then seen as a “winnable” Presidential candidate, following the death of his mother, Corazon, President of the post-Marcos dictatorship, from 1986 go 1992. Roxas lost the Vice Presidency to Binay in 2010.

Won’t endorse Duterte said he will not endorse any of these Presidential candidates if he won’t run for President because “all of them are my friends.” Even as he has sounded indecisive on running for the Presidency, Duterte has continued moving around the country for his so-called “listening tour” on federalism and as special guest in major occasions. From Cagayan de Oro on Saturday night he moved over to Camiguin on Sunday and is scheduled to be in M’lang, North Cotabato on Monday, August 3. In his testimonial dinner on Saturday, he shared with the audience his vision of how he would run the government if he were elected President. “After six years, I’m going to give you a new government and a new order,” he said. Duterte said he will have to contend with a corruptridden bureaucracy and “a Congress that serves its own interests.” In his earlier pronouncements, he said he’d work for the abolition of Congress. “How do you deal with police who are into criminality? By what stretch of imagination can you really define due process if you want to reform this government,” he asked. “If anyone of you can answer that maybe I will reconsider and run for the Presidency,” he said. “Presidential prospect” Duterte’s supporters, however, have not given up on the idea that he would run for President. Former North Cotabato Governor Emmanuel Pinol (1988 to 2008), one of the staunchest Duterte supporters, refered to Duterte as “Presidential prospect”or “Presidential hopeful” in an article he wrote on Sunday regarding the visit of Duterte in Pinol’s hometown in M’lang, North Cotabato, on Monday, August 3. “Duterte is expected to share his vision for Philippine agriculture” when he visits M’lang, Pinol wrote. Pinol described Duterte as “the only Presidential hopeful who is considered to have a deep understanding of agriculture” and who has been “advocating for greater government intervention in food production, including the marketing of farmers’ produce.”
