Food experts say eggs ‘definitely good’ for daily consumption

F

ood and nutrition experts, including dietitian and medical practitioners, have all agreed that daily egg consumption does not pose any risk to people with normal health and that eggs are one of the best and most affordable sources of protein that are easily available to most Filipinos.

Gathered for the media launch of “The Good Egg” campaign at the Poultry Show & Fiestag 2015 at the SMX Convention Center in Pasay City on August 15, 2015, the experts took turns in debunking myths that eggs cause heart problems and hypertension and presented scientific studies that show the positive effects of daily egg consumption. Resource persons for the egg consumption advocacy include ranking officials of the Food and Nutrition Research Institute led by Nutritionist Consuelo Orense who represented FNRI Executive Director Dr. Mar Capanzana , and former Director Dr. Celeste

Tanchoco who authored an FNRI study that says daily egg consumption poses no health risk to normally healthy adult Filipinos. The FNRI officials also expounded on the agency’s banner program called Pinggang Pinoy which promotes a balanced diet for Filipinos. Also in attendance were Ms Perla Esguerra, Chief Dietitian of the Philippine Heart Center; Dr. Adela Ruiz, President of the Nutritionist-Dietitians’ Association of the Philippines (NDAP); and Ms Carla Porticos from research firm Insight Asia. Insight Asia conducted an earlier study, and found

out that the main barrier to eating eggs is cholesterol issue. Other speakers included Dr. Fe Marie AlejandreColico, Business Unit Head of Sarimanok Poultry which is spearheading the campaign; Atty. Irwin Ambal, President of the Philippine Egg Board; Dr. Rubina Cresencio, Director of the Bureau of Animal Industry; and Mr. Edwin Mapanao, AVP of Univet Nutrition and Animal Healthcare Company, the mother company of Sarimanok. Dr. Ruiz of NDAP discussed how eggs can make a difference in improving the Filipinos’ daily diet especially in schools through

cafeterias and canteens, or commonly called outof-home eating, while Ms Esguerra of the Philippine Heart Center reiterated that there is no clear science yet that eggs are harmful, adding that eating eggs once a day is definitely okay. Director Cresencio of BAI for her part said regular consumption of egg can play a vital role in food security and providing livelihood to many Filipinos, particularly those who are engaged in raising layer ducks and chickens. The media launch also featured an audio visual presentation, a pledge of commitment of the various groups supporting the advo-

cacy, an egg toast, as well as a mock trial of “The Good Egg” in a courtroom setting complete with a judge, a lawyer, a nutritionist, the defendant egg, and even placard-bearing supporters wearing “Justice for Itlog” shirts. Dr. Colico of Sarimanok said the company, which does not produce or sell eggs, said the advocacy is mainly about improving the health of Filipinos in accordance with government nutrition and dietary guidelines by promoting egg consumption particularly among poor communities and even schools where food are usually deficient in proteins.

Mr. Mapanao for his part said The Good Egg is a long-term advocacy that should also help the agriculture industry and the country’s food safety and security programs. He said eggs not only offer good protein but are very affordable and widely available, and should be a good substitute for other popular but mostly processed and low-nutrient food products.

Cable operators urged to collaborate for better Net speed DAVAO CITY – A strong collaboration among the cable operators in the Philippines will be necessary to fully maximize the additional one-terabyte bandwidth as a result of the fiber optic submarine cable that will link up Mindanao to the rest of the world, said Dr. Alfredo C. Panizales, executive vice president of Best Cable Corporation (BCC). He said this at the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) Chief Executive Officers’ Conference during the Livelihood Exchange Philippines 2015 at that the SMX Convention Center Davao on Wednesday. The additional capacity will be initially exclusive to Autonomous Region for Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) where EA Trilink, the project’s proponent in the Philippines, got its franchise. Panizales emphasized the

need for local cable operators to bring the bandwidth out to the rest of Mindanao, otherwise the extra Internet boost will remain only in the underserved autonomous region. The additional capacity is seen to make Internet speed faster and making it more cost efficient. “How to interconnect with cable networks is a big challenge to regulators,” Panizales said. He explained the BCC will only provide the bandwidth but it will be the cable operators and giant telephone companies who would spread it to other parts of the country. “BCC will provide the bandwidth across the country through other providers,” he said. “Satellite will be a major component (for this project).” Mindanao’s bandwidth is tapped

in Luzon, which results in lower Internet speed due to its distance to the source. But with the fiber optics’ headend located in Parang, Maguindanao, Internet speed is seen to get better once completed by middle of 2017. This headend will tap the 5,000-kilometer submarine cable that connects Tawau, Malaysia and Guam. Brunei and Malaysia have already been connected through a terrestrial structure. In a separate interview, Jasmi Adnan Thien, president and chief executive officer of BCC, said they have seen a huge market for Internet in the Brunei-Indonesia-MalaysiaPhilippines East Asean Growth Area (BIMP-EAGA), considering that there are areas in this sub-region that remain to be underserved. “Best Cable System is seen as one single class that will con-

nect Asean with the US. This will help bring down the pricing in the underserved BIMP-EAGA,” he said. Thien said they are willing to partner with the giant telcos. But with or without the telcos, they will continue servicing the sub-region to eradicate the digital divide among the member nations. He said this project will stir competition among the cable and telephone companies that will result in an Internet cost that is more efficient for local consumers. Atty. Samuel Matunog, president of the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) Davao, said the existing few broadband providers can dictate the pricing for lack of competition. With the fiber optic cable, more players will come into play, he noted. The project will specifically benefit the small and medium enterprises (SMEs), Matunog said. “Through this project, we are thinking of ways how the innovators will be provided to access broadband for innovation purpose,” he said. Earlier, Matunog said the fiber optic cable project will position the Maguindanao as the next Business Process Outsourcing hub of the Philippines, which will generate employment for the Bangsamoro people. To sustain a booming business environment, he underscored the need for peace and development initiatives in war-torn ARMM. (Antonio I. Colina IV / MindaNews)

Searching a tandem There is a brewing irony plaguing the two declared front running candidates for president next year and that is their inability to get the best tandem they could ever have. Liberal Party (LP) presidential bet, outgoing Interior and Local Governments Secretary Manuel “Mar” Roxas II, is presumed the strongest aspirant because he is the ruling party’s bet and endorsed no less by sitting President Benigno Simeon “Noynoy” Aquino III. Unluckily for Roxas, no one seems interested in becoming his running mate. This is an irony considering all the factors that favor his bid. He has the backing of the biggest political party in the country today and his candidacy has the government bureaucracy and resources at his beck and call. But why is it that no one seems interested in becoming his running mate? First he courted Sen. Grace Poe to run with him. While Poe did not categorically spurned his overtures, she

was very clear in telling Roxas and the LP not to wait for her. While Poe occupies the rare privilege of being the leading personality the people will readily choose for president next year, up to this writing, she still has to make up her mind whether to seek a higher post than what she now occupies. Next to be floated as the running mate of Roxas who the endorsers say will make their tandem the tandem to beat is Batangas Gov. Vilama Santos. She, however, did not show any interest in running for a higher office perhaps because she does

not want to be exposed as a mere movie star with nothing to boast of in the field of politics. Then there was that talk of the wife of the late Interior and local Governments Secretary Jesse Robredo as a possible tandem to Roxas. I even endorsed here Camarines Sur Rep. Leni Robredo as the best tandem for Roxas. Sadly, Robredo is not keen on running for a higher office. Now there is this idea of House Speaker Feliciano Belmonte that the next best tandem for Roxas after Poe is Sen. Alan Peter Cayetano. Cayetano has previously declared his interest tin seeking a higher office next year notably the presidency. Will he slide down to become the running mate of Roxas? Or will Roxas be comfortable with Cayetano as his running mate? The problem with a male tandem is that both will be compared and Roxas may not be comfortable being compared with Cayetano. Cayetano, let us remember, is more charismatic than Roxas. He is a pleasure to

listen to compared to Roxas who is a boring speaker. And Cayetano is gifted with the looks akin to male movie stars. If Roxas can convince Robredo to tandem with him, she would be the best for him. She is definitely an asset for Roxas’ own bid in many ways than one. Vice President Jejomar Binay, on the other hand, is being evaded by would-be running mates like a plague. No one is keen on being identified with him despite his propagandists claim that he is a sure winner. Why a sure winner like Binay would be hard pressed in finding a running mate is really a paradox. Everyone should have been knocking at his door pleading for his grace to be his running mate. But this is not so in the case of Binay. No one seems ready and willing to lend to Binay their personal credence to be his tandem in next year’s polls. And it is for this that comedian Amay Bisaya is offering himself to be Binay’s running mate. But that offer See bacon, page A15

NEA electric cooperatives are not genuine

training and information; (6) cooperation among cooperatives; and (7) concern for community. The Cooperative Development Authority (CDA) as the regulatory agency of Philippine cooperatives ensure that cooperatives follow these seven principles. Among the cooperative principles not followed by electric cooperatives created by the National Electrification Administration (NEA) is autonomy and independence and democratic control of members. The general assembly of a genuine cooperative elects the members of the Board of Directors (BOD). Then the BOD serves as policy-making body, including the organization of the cooperative management team headed by a general manager. The management team overseas the day-today operations of the cooperative. While the general assembly elects the BOD of NEA electric cooperatives, the NEA appoints the general manager. This incongruous practice results in a powerless BOD. In NEA cooperatives, the general manager can ignore policy decisions of the board. In truth and

Fastlanes

Bencyrus G. Ellorin practice, the NEA becomes a very powerful voice, as it can dictate the general manager or otherwise, it can exercise its power to hire and fire. To correct this social wrong, as the original author of the Cooperative Code of the Philippines, Senator Nene Pimentel, calls it, electric cooperatives should register with the CDA – for the CDA to exercise its regulatory powers over these juridical persons. Thus section 57 of the Energy and Power Industry Reform Act (Epira) or Republic Act 9136 of 2001 provides for the conversion of electric cooperatives into either stock cooperative under the CDA or stock corporations under the Corporation Code.

But like other Philippine laws, this provision of the law was not implemented to the letter. Of the 140 electric cooperatives nationwide, only 13 converted into stock cooperatives and registered with the CDA. There are still many electric cooperatives who want to convert, but arm-twisting by hands not so unseen have made the conversion processes difficult, like the one being experienced by the Davao del Norte Electric Cooperative (Daneco) and the Agusan del Norte Electric Cooperative (Aneco.) The First Bukidnon Cooperative (Fibeco) is biting the bullet and would hold a referendum on August 29, 2015 whether to register with CDA, convert into corporation or remain with NEA. Note that the third option is not in the Epira. The NEA option was inserted in RA 10531 or the law that amended the NEA law (PD 269). The third option would perpetuate what Senator Nene Pimentel called a social wrong. The Fibeco referendum is an important exercise as See ellorin, page A15

Laws needed to penalize obstruction of power lines By MARK FRANCISCO, Staff member

CAGAYAN de Oro City--The National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP) called on Mindanao lawmakers--from the barangay councils to municipal and city councils to the Sangguniang Panlalawigan and even up to both Houses of Congress--to pass laws prohibiting landowners from planting trees and erecting other structures close to its transmission lines and transformers. Speaking to reporters in Cagayan de Oro City on Wednesday (August 19), NGCP spokesperson Cynthia P. Alabanza said a Republic Act (RA) and local ordinances would help give the private company teeth in enforcing their right-of-way in transmission lines. According to NGCP maintenance head Gildo Listano, there should be no natural or man-made structure from within nine meters from any transmission line as a precaution against electrocution and outages. The NGCP operates a total of 20,000 kilometers

in transmission lines all over the country, but Ms. Alabanza said the power lines from Balo-i station in Lanao del Norte are the most critical since it supplies a quarter of the whole Mindanao grid. “If a line trips and this particular line run through our load centers in Davao or Gensan, then there will be a massive blackout,” she said,adding, there are the power lines from Balo-i station go through Lanao del Norte, Maguindanao, North Cotabato, Sultan Kudarat and Surigao del Sur. During a meeting in Cagayan de Oro City yes-

terday, NGCP provided law enforcement authorities with pictures of transmission lines obstructed by trees, vegetation and even houses. Ms. Alabanza said some landowners in Lanao del Norte are taking advantage of the situation by intentionally growing trees beside the transmission lines and applying for right-of-way claims. The NGCP has spent thousands of pesos paying these landowners although Ms. Alabanza could not specify the total amount the company has expended. It is at this point that the NGCP official is calling on senators and congressmen from the affected districts to file a bill penalizing landowners who intentionally obstruct the transmission lines. Last week, Ms. Alabanza guested a Mindanao-wide vice-governors’ meeting here and also appealed to the local legislators to pass a similar measure in their respective provinces.

$300-million Best submarine fiber optic cable project will keep the influx of businesses to ARMM as the business confidence among the investors improves, Matunog said. “This is a large amount of money. If conflicts continue, it’s not a good environment for investors,” he said. Matunog added that ICT Davao is supporting all initiatives to attain peace in Mindanao. Earlier, ICT Davao vice president Lizabel Holganza cited the need for ARMM to develop local talents in order to sustain the operations of

the companies who are planning to invest there that will promote growth in Mindanao. In her message, Mindanao Development Authority (MinDA) secretary Luwalhati Antonino said the island has maintained a resilient economy posting a 7.4 percent growth in 2014, higher than the 6.1 percent national growth. “The positive performance is attributed to the solid growth of the industry sector, with an increase of 10.7 percent last year and the strong contribution of the services sector, of which many of you (ICT sector) are

part of, that grew by 7.5 percent,” she said. Antonino also noted an increase in the Internet access for private sector establishments in Mindanao at 83.1 percent. She mentioned about the Mindanao Corridors Development Program which reinforces the “enabling business environment for sustained trade within BIMP-EAGA, among the ASEAN and the rest of the world.” The official emphasized to vigorously pursue an innovation and start-up ecosystem in Mindanao to ride on the increasing trend within the sub-region. To do this, investments should be aimed at the creation and empowerment of more small and medium enterprises

(SMEs) that support ICT industry, Antonino said. “By pursuing SME empowerment, we will become more inclusive as we utilize technology to address the challenges and constraints in other industry sectors,” she said. She said the corridors program has laid various strategies to increase the competitiveness of Mindanao and Palawan through infrastructure development and logistics services. “Among the island groups in the Philippines, Mindanao got the second largest share in terms of public expenditures in infrastructure at 28.2 percent or P21.5 billion in 2014,” Antonino said.

MANAGEMENT SKILLS IMPORTANT IN THE JOB AND TASKS PERFORMED BY SCHOOL PRINCIPAL By Delma P. Kuizon, Ph. D Damilag Elementary School

School principals hold the key to success in an empowered, globally competitive and extremely fast changing world. To make this possible, they must possess adequate skills as effective instructional leaders, highly professional administrators, and creative and resourceful school managers. School principals can be considered as empowered only if they possess skills which would enable them to empower their teachers just as well. Katz (1987) as cited by Stoner & Wankel (1987) stresses that managers who have the necessary management skills, will probably perform well and be relatively successful. On the other hand, if managers do not have the necessary management skills, they will probably perform poorly and be relatively unsuccessful. There are three types of primary skills that are important for successful management performance. These are technical skills, human skills and conceptual skills (Katz, 1987). Technical skills involve using specialized knowledge and expertise in executing work-related techniques and procedures. These include among others computer programming, budgeting, accounting, etc. Technical skills involve the ability to use tools, procedures, and techniques in specialized field. Human skill, on the other hand, is the ability to work with, understand, and motivate other people either as individual or groups. Human skills involve working with attitudes, communications, and values. Human skills are needed to work with other organization’s members and to lead their own work groups. Conceptual skills involve the ability

to see the organizations as a whole. Certo (1985) explains that managers with conceptual skills are better able to understand how various functions of the organizations complement one another, the relationship of the organization to its environment and how changes in one part of the organization affect the rest of the organization. As one moves from the lower management level, to top management level, conceptual skills become more important and technical skills less important, but at any level of management, human skills are needed. Principals vary in their experiences. Some only have leadership potential with no formal preparation in teacher education and no experience on the job, some have little experience. There are some who are very experienced but operate in a difficult area while some are about to retire. A few have specific problems related to handling of finances, human and public relations, legal concerns, ICT skill requirements, ethical leadership, etc. Since educational organizations are changing rapidly toward decentralized information based and task force dominated instruction the school principal needs to have his management skills that are extremely needed in his work and tasks he has to perform. As promising leaders in DepED, they must always take the initiative to identify their strengths and weaknesses and do something to have their skills be delivered to educational service effectively. My fellow principals let us all keep in our heart and mind that what we are is a Gift from God and what we do is our gift to Him.

DAVAO City--Philippine Eagle Pamana did not last more than 59 days in the wild after she was released last June 12 in Mt. Hamiguitan, Davao Oriental. She was shot by unknown perpetrators last August 10, the Philippine Eagle Foundation (PEF) said. Dennis Joseph Salvador, PEF executive director, said that the perpetrators of the crime have yet to be identified. He said that it took their team of biologists six days to track the bird through the embedded transmitter due to the difficult terrain. Pamana’s body was found within a kilometer radius from where she was released and was then brought to Davao City from Barangay San Isidro in Davao Oriental for necropsy. Ne c r o p s y f i n d i n g s showed that Pamana had a 5mm bullet hole in her right breast (with some metal fragments); her left shoulder blade was also shattered. The weapon that killed her remains unidentified. Salvador said that their foundation will be closely working with the authorities to get to the bottom of this tragedy. The shooting of Pamana is a violation of Administrative Order No. 235, s. 1970. This law prohibits

wounding, taking, selling, exchanging, and/or exporting, processing and killing of the Philippine Eagle. “Any person found violating this Order shall be punished in accordance with the provisions of Act No. 2590.” According to that act, violators will be fined and imprisoned for 12 years. Prior to August 10, Salvador narrated that Pamana was in perfect health. Based on the tracking device, he said that there was no indication that anything abnormal was happening to the bird. Salvador even said that he, along with his team, was still enjoying telescope videos of the bird’s activities in the wild at that time. On August 11, the onsite biologists reported that a mortality mode signal from the transmitter set off that raised their concern on the eagle. When a signal like this is emitted, it can only mean two things: the transmitter was removed or the bird is dead. According to PEF, it’s

PAALAM PAMANA. The remains of Pamana, the Philippine Eagle who was shot and killed in Mt. Hamiguitan in Davao Oriental, as photographed last Sunday (16 August 2015). The eagle was released into the wild only last June 12.Photo from the Twitter page of the Philippine Eagle Foundation (PEF).

difficult to tell how the eagle was shot exactly (whether it was on flight, resting, etc.). The gunshot wounds are the only leads present. The body of the eagle was also intact when it was found; there was no amputation of certain body parts that can be potentially used and sold by poachers for money.

Even with the aggressive and territorial nature of the Philippine Eagle, they can still be very vulnerable and their animal instincts can be limited. Salvador called on the public to be more involved with environmental protection especially when endemic animals like the

Philippine Eagle are concerned. These eagles, with only a few number in the wild, have high endemic value and play very important roles in the food chain. The total cost of raising Pamana to her optimal state—from recovering her after a gunshot incident in April 2012, to rehabilitation

up until the June 12 release this year—is about P1.7 million. Salvador commented that it’s difficult to find out why some people shoot the eagle, even if this proves to have no real benefit to them. Threats to the survival of See pamana, page A15

PhilRice releases soil guidebook to help increase farm productivity THE Philippine Rice Research Institute (PhilRice) has produced a guidebook titled “Simplified Keys to Soil Series” to provide farmers accurate soil identification through qualitative analysis of the soil’s basic properties: color, texture, pH (measure of acidity and alkalinity) and coarse fragments.

Wilfredo Collado, senior science research specialist of the Agronomy, Soils and Plant Physiology Division (ASPPD) of PhilRice, said the book will not just provide a better approach towards agro-technological transfer but will also help enhance agricultural productivity in a farming area. “Once the soil is identified, most suitable crops can now be selected and

planted, and at the same time, proper soil management recommendations can be devised,” he said. The scientist said that through the book, farmers will also be guided on soil fertility and management as well as on the appropriate technology requirements for a particular crop. “Soil identification follows simple methods from soil sampling, color deter-

mination, pH and texture determination. The steps under these methods are detailed in the guide book,” Collado said. A soil series guidebook for each of the major rice producing provinces of the country - Isabela, Nueva Ecija, Iloilo, Pampanga, Tarlac, Aklan, Antique, Bataan, Bulacan, Pangasinan, Zambales, Aurora,

COTABATO City--Entrepreneurial strategists of the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao approved on Wednesday the registration of a PHP3.7billion Cavendish banana plantation project of Al-

THE K TO 12 BASIC EDUCATION PROGRAM

By Roldan P. Azumbrado Principal 1 Sta. Cruz Elementary School Quezon II District

Lot of parents rails latest innovation on Education introduced by the DepEd nowadays which tries to convince them to accept/adopt this breakthrough in the ladder of education. Myself as a mere educator assigned in the rural community of brgy. Sta. Cruz I did some activities which aims to let the rural folks somehow could even have a working know how as to what’s the advantage and scoop of latest in the depEd dubbed as – K to 12 program. Now let me do it by way putting into proper perspective of the following: WHAT IS THE K TO 12 PROGRAMS? K to 12 stands for Kindergarten to Grade 12. The program covers Kindergarten and 12 years of basic educa-

tion (one (1) year kindergarten, six (6) years of primary education, four (4) years of Junior High School, and two (2) years of Senior High School [SHS]). K to 12 starts with Universal Kindergarten which mandates all public elementary schools to offer kindergarten class and accept 5-year old learners beginning 2011. It is followed by six years of Elementary, four years of Junior High School, and two years of Senior High School where students will pursue their preferred career track depending on their skills and inclination. WHEN WILL THE K TO 12 PROGRAMS BE IMPLEMENTED? Universal Kindergarten began in SY 2011–2012. Grade 1 entrants in SY 2012–2013 are the first batch to fully undergo the program, and current 1st year Junior High School students (or Grade 7) are the first to undergo the enhanced

Teachers’ Emotional Intelligence Matters By Marecil Olandria - Alfeche Master Teacher-I San Miguel ES, Pangantucan District

Emotional Intelligence (£1) is one of the most important aspects that a teacher must possess. Since teaching appears to be a challenging profession, it is necessary that teachers must have the ability to quickly calm oneself and diffuse stress to stay balanced, focused, and in control of stressful situations. At present, there are many behavioral and emotional problems arising in school, which affect teachers’ performance, e.g. lack of classroom discipline and poor academic performance of the pupils. Teachers also display undesirable attitudes like intimidating pupils in front of the class, inflicting corporal punishment, being absent and/or tardy from classes, conferences, meetings, and seminars. Aside from these, they shew lack of interest in other school functions, and they loss interest in teaching as evident in the slow pace in education.

On the other hand, emotionally intelligent teachers are active in their orientation to students, work, and life. They are resilient to negative stress and less likely to overwhelm themselves with pessimism and strong, negative emotions. Consequently, emotionally intelligent teachers could be of great help in achieving quality education. They can function effectively and efficiently on a specific duty, resulting to quality performance. Eventually, the attainment of quality education depends on the performance of the teacher as a central figure in all teaching activities. To be successful, a person has to be emotionally intelligent also to manage stress, build stronger relationships, succeed at work, achieve personal goals and most of all prepare an individual for life. EI should be seen as a critical component of instruction.

The Biblical Counsels on Children

By Samson C. Gaje Salawagan National High School

The New Testament binds a great responsibility on children when it says in Ephesians 6, verses 1-3, “Children obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right. Honor thy father and mother; (which is the first commandment with promise;) that it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth”. The key words are “honor” and “obey”. There is no time limit on this. God does not free a child from this responsibility simply because he has now gone to college or is married. A child in the earliest years of adulthood makes a tragic mistake by neglecting his parents. It is necessary that we say something about the word “obey”. Children are to obey their parents “in the Lord”. One must never forget that his allegiance to God comes before any man. That includes government, companions and parents. The early apostles expressed it well when they

were commanded not to preach in the name of Christ. They responded by saying in Acts 5, verse 29, “We ought to obey God rather than men”. The term “obey your parents” indicates that the parents have laid down some laws or provided some instruction to guide the children. This is what is meant by the wise man when he said in Proverbs 22, verse 6, “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old he will not depart from it”. It is understood then that the law is to be obeyed by the child is that which will make him a fine, decent, responsible person. Instructions of parents should be revered by children beyond the parents death. No time limit then on “Children obey your parents in the Lord” Ephesians 6:1. The other word that stands out so predominantly in the children’s responsibility to their parents is the word “honor”. The Bible says in Ephesians 6, verse 2, “Honor thy father and mother”. This responsibility deals

secondary education program. Grade 11 will be introduced in SY 2016–2017 and Grade 12 in SY 2017–2018. The first batch of high school students to go through K to 12 will graduate in March 2018. WHERE WILL THE TWO (2) YEARS BE ADDED? The two (2) years will be added after the four (4) year high school program. This will be called the Senior High School. WHAT IS SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL? Senior High School is two years of specialized upper secondary education. Students may choose a career track based on aptitude, interests, and school capacity. The choice of career track will define the content of the subjects a student will take in Grades 11 and 12. These subjects fall under either the Core Curriculum or specific Career Pathways. WHY IS OUR GOVERN-

MENT IMPLEMENTING 12 YEARS OF BASIC EDUCATION? A 12-year program is found to be the adequate period for learning. It is also a standard for recognition of students and/ or professionals abroad. Why are we now implementing 12 years of basic education? The Philippines is the last country in Asia and one of only three countries worldwide with a 10-year pre-university cycle (Angola and Djibouti are the other two). A 12-year program is found to be the best period for learning under basic education. It is also the recognized standard for students and professionals globally. What has been done to get ready for K to 12? Are we really ready for K to 12? SY 2011-2012: Universal Kindergarten implementation begins SY 2012-2013: Enhanced

All 221 divisions of the Department of Education (DepEd) have finished planning and have figures on enrolment a year in advance. These plans were reviewed by a separate team and finalized upon consultation with other stakeholders. As of April 30, 2015, DepEd has issued provisional permits to 1,866 private schools set to offer Senior High School in 2016. How will K to 12 affect the college curriculum? The College General Education curriculum will have fewer units. Subjects that have been taken up in Basic Education

BUKIDNON, THE PEOPLE AND I

By Maricel L Rubio

Who would ever thought that a certain man from Cebu would meet a lady from Misamis Oriental and raised a family in Bukidnon? Serendipity as it may be called; loue made the union possible which gave way to my birth in this bounteous place. I was born and raised in Bukidnon. I might have not known every detail but I could consider myself a living witness to the attributes this place possessed and what it could offer to its guests. Bukidnon is located at the central part of Region X. It is composed of different ethnic groups and diverse culture, its

annual celebration of Kaamulan festival showcases the richness of Bukidnon’s cultural heritage as well as promoting the legacy of unity in diversity. Furthermore, the vast and verdant mountains and the abundant agricultural products are among the treasures it beholds which one would be proud of. Through the years, it has continually preserved its cultural inheritance despite the attempts of manipulation of the few and amidst the boost of modem technology and advancement It has remained stable and secured in its quest to attain recognition as well. It has kept Its vigilance against intrusions. Likewise, there could be considered a balance

in promoting Bukidnon’s ecotourism spots and in nurturing the authenticity of nature. However, it couldn’t be denied that there had been conflicts and disintegration of people due to individuality and interest This is basically true in any group for no one is ever exempted from experiencing predicament The essence Is the ability of both parties who manages to fix things to render better service to its people. The adherence to diplomacy as an integral part of democracy and respect for humanity are vigorously carved in mind. What is more amazing is the embedded friendliness and warm-hearted people of Bukidnon. The crave for peace and

Delete Math Hate Syndrome

What do people say about mathematics? An almost unanimous words coming from different tongues that it is really difficult which can surely drain our energy. It’s like a brain wracking battle between our mind and those dreaded equations, lengthy solutions and computations. Another scenario that manifest negations with mathematics is right after math examinations in which you could hear an echo voices of our students saying “Nose Bleed Bai”! For no wonder many abhor it. But are you aware that although mathematics is difficult to the majority, it is essential, significant and it can be fun and exciting as well? The application and significance of mathematics in the real world is indispensable and increasing in many diverse fields such as medicine, computer sciences, space exploration, the skilled trades, business, defense, government and many others. Despite the increasing importance of mathematics to the progress of our economy and

society, studying and utilizing mathematics is still decreasing. Despite the collaborative efforts of different math educators, mentors and field teachers to heal the unpleasant feeling and attitude of students towards the subject by providing significant and meaningful activities, math hate syndrome still persist. To help the students recognize and appreciate mathematics, it is appropriate that everybody be reminded of the importance of this basic branch of science to our daily lives. It is therefore our goal and primary purpose to increase public and students understanding of and appreciation of mathematics as well as to increase the visibility of mathematics as a field of study and to communicate the power, intrigue and recognition about this subject that mathematics is everywhere and it is present in our world all the time not only in school but also in our workplaces, in our homes and in life in general. Kitaotao National High School Mathematics club employ different strategies to let the people informed about what more for

mathematics can offer us. Our school - based Mathematics Week Celebrations promotes mathematical integration, connection and application to different fields with varied themes every year such as “Using Mathematics In Everyday Life”, “Like Mathematics”, as well as ‘Simplifying mathematical anxiety through fun games” basically reminding us of its great importance. Range of activities were provided for students such as Math King and Queen, Mathematical Bluffs, Math Henyo, Minute to Math It, Testing your mental flexibility and creativity, Math Fancy Dress up and other mathematical fun games to help them understand that we need mathematics in almost everything that we do. The creation of Mathematics Avenue/park as well as Mathematics Laboratory showcasing different math puzzles and games as well as catering students need like math tutorial and review center is solely a reminder, an invitation and a campaign for a development of mathematics optimism aiming to eliminate math anxiety, fear and number fatigues.

with the child’s attitude and respect toward parents. Webster’s New World Dictionary says of the word honor, it is “High regard of great respect given”. “Something done or given as a token of respect”. The child who has learned to honor parents can then effectively show high regard toward his fellow

man. He later can easily show respect for a companion and his own children. It is important that we pause to say that parents have the responsibility to provide the proper atmosphere in the home so that the child can develop an appreciation for law and order given by par-

ents. Such an environment will cause children to rise up and call their parents “blessed”. The example of parents set in honoring and loving one another is far-reaching in the heart and life-pattern of the child. When a child cannot see parents love, respect and honor one another, it is extremely

I’ve been hearing that a lot of people have not been consulted regarding K to 12. Is this true? DepEd has always been transparent in the planning and implementation of K to 12. There have been regular consultations with various sectors since 2010, before the law was passed, during the crafting of the IRR, and during implementations. DepEd representatives have also attended various fora and conferences, including legislative inquiries, regarding K to12. We are open to criticisms and suggestions regarding this. I help only to spread an awareness and information on the K to 12 Program to any interested parties. the desire to iron things out as a result of being religious are most probable reasons this place has sustained its vulnerability towards hostility.

These love math moves are not only intended for those who are mathematically enthusiast individuals but for everybody hoping to develop students’ knowledge and enjoyment of mathematics while working together, developing students’ awareness of links between mathematics and other subject/ discipline and in promoting that mathematics is useful in almost everything we do. These are maximizing students’ recognition and appreciation with its wonderful and amazing contributions to our daily lives. Let us consider this undertaking as a great challenge to hurdle. We must always remember that although mathematics is the most dreaded subject in the curriculum where the greatest number of failures occurred as weil as complicated as regarded by the majority but it can be simplified if it is equated by its prime importance and significance.

Responsible Parenthood in the 21st Century By Grace T. Palahang Salawagan National High School

Children are not easy to raise, they do not come with any guidelines and they most definitely do not come with any kind of pause button. They just come with a whole lot of emotional and physical needs. If parents fail to meet their needs, it often has lasting effects on them. If you are a parent, the law holds you responsible for the way you bring up your child. Parenting goes beyond merely feeding and clothing your children. Parenting involves providing a safe environment for their growth, providing for their basic needs, allowing them to develop their

own identity, nurturing their self esteem, installing moral and social values, respecting them, educating them, spending time with them etc. Parenting does not only require love and affection but also discipline. You need to draw the line for your children. You need to shout at them when they are wrong. It may break your heart to say no to something for them but you need to do it. Being a good parent does not mean you have to give in to everything they ask for. You need to learn to give them what they need and not only what they want. Parental responsibility

Why Me! By Jasmen S. Litub Dagumbaan Elementary School

Complains, troubles and conflicts. Those are one of the common incidents in school. One is the victim and the other is a suspect. A child can ask, “Why, me?”, “Why they don’t like me?”, “Why this happens to me?”. Bullying is a fact present in a social group or an organization. Republic act no. 10627 “An act requiring all elementary and secondary schools to adopt policies to prevent and address the acts of bullying in their institutions”. Bullying refer to any severe or repeated use by one

or more students of a written, verbal or electronic expression, or a physical act or gesture, or any combination thereof, directed at another student that has the effect of actually causing or placing the latter in reasonable fear of physical or emotional harm or damage to his property; creating a hostile environment at school for the other student; infringing on the rights of the other student at school; or materially and substantially disrupting the education process or the orderly operation of a school (Sec. 2).

do es not only b elong to the mother or father, if the parents are married, the responsibility lies equally with both the mother and the father. Having parental responsibility basically means that you as a parent have the right to make important decisions regarding medical treatment and education etc for your child. In many countries parental responsibility lies with both parents only if they are married, if they are divorced, the parental responsibility lies only with the mother. Should the mother die, the parental responsibility does not automatically pass over to the father. The courts will

first consider it and than hand over the child to the person it feels will best take care of the child. If you are a mom or a dad, I hope this will help you! First I want to tell you that you are always doing your best with your kids. Nobody ever taught you to be a parent. You have to make it up as you go along and that’s so hard. In my career as a teacher, I can honestly say that the vast majority of parents I met always really had their kids’ best interest at heart but sometimes, they just didn’t know how to get it across. You are truly a cornerstone in helping your kids to be successful in the future.

The law dictates the school to avoid bullying for it may cause severe damage in the physical or mental well-being of a person. But in the school community this concern is seldom ignored. Character and intelligence are the sole main purpose of educating a child. For these children brings the future of the nation. School is not just a place of learning; it is an avenue for social and emotional development of a child. It is considered a cradle for their development. Yet, the bullying exists. How much a single word uttered, act, decision brings frustration and loneliness towards a human being. An irreplaceable trauma, a felling to be felt for a lifetime. It is a pain for the child

much more with the parents who brought life with these individuals. Justice they may say, whatever the case and the reason it sounds. For bullying is considered a crime and therefore needs immediate attention among the school leaders, teachers, parents, and whole educational community. Why me? Desperate question of an innocent. Nurture a gift for each pupil. Let them learned in a friendly and peaceful environment. Provide a faculty of interaction and camaraderie among the pupils or your kids. For it takes a community to educate a child. Understand and be a light.

Reading-A tool to improve one’s knowledge By Cristin Dagatan Tingson Teacher I Purok Pag-asa Elementary School Quezon II District

Reading not only has tremendous power when it comes to fueling the development of all aspects of language ability, its importance to the entirety of a human life in this day and age really can’t be overstated. To help underscore this point, we initiate something to showcase on the power and importance of literacy. Cut yourself a big piece of cake and read along with me… Reading is so important to motivate child interest in learning and to make studies more meaningful to him. Reading means a lot of things and it has purposes. Maybe it’s for learning or it just for fun, but there’s a hindrance for the child to learn the socalled those who belonged to illiteracy sector. In Pag-asa Elementary School where I’m assigned these days, the illiteracy of the pupils is identified as the main problem when I came here, because school facilities were not yet really provided. No enough reading materials, like books, internet or something that could improve reading ability, so in order to help us as well as our stakeholders tugging an idea to have 10 minutes a day and it is called “KAPWA KO TURUAN KO”. The Pag-asa

Teachers established a group consisting of good readers and higher grade pupils or in other words little teachers. The aim of this program is to improve the reading ability of our school learners and to help reducing the number of illiterate pupils. This also promotes good relationship among pupils by instilling the values of friendship and using spare time wisely. So that they’ll know that time is very important and not ought to waste in this age. Pupils listens well every advice you’re giving to them. In other words this is the molding point of an individual. And to correct their behavior the reason why the pupils cannot cope up easily with the topics being discussed by teacher it’s not because they are stupid it’s because of their behavior that makes them dull. To solve those problems we followed some steps in imitating the program: Ø First we group all the frustration of every reader Ø Second each group we assigned Ate and Kuya Teachers Ø Third inform the stakeholders so that parents will personally teach his/her child because what the parents does, the child is influenced.

CONTIUING STUDIES; A NEED IN TEACHING PROFESSION By MA. FE LARA M. JUNTILLA – Teacher II Pangantucan Central Elementary School

Few years ago, this was my life. At school. I did my best to gain knowledge in order for me to impart it to my future pupils. My daily routine makes my life simple and predictable. I became stagnant and careless, I didn’t care what will become of me when I got my work as a teacher. I am contented teaching my pupils until I realized I must grow professionally inside and out. To be more efficient I should update and upgrade my capabilities to meet advance children. It is not fair for them if I stick to the old ways where the world have all the things to offer. It is also an advantage for me since I can use it for professional growth.

And He was in the wilderness forty days being tempted by Satan; and He was with the wild beasts, and the angels were ministering to Him.

Department of Health (DOH), in partnership with the Dept. of Education (DepEd) thru the health and nutrition Center (HNC) conducted national Deworming Day last July 29, 2015. The National Deworming Day, targets to deworm 16 million school children from Kinder to Grade 6 in all public schools nationwide. DOH allocated a budget

of P49 million for the synchronized deworming activity. A child who was dewormed three to four months ago does not mean he or she is already wormfree as after the period since the worm can thrive again, health official said. On January 2016, DOH will be deworming 12 million children of pre-school age from zero to five-years old. D r. Ju l i e Lyn Hall, representative of the World Health Organization to the Philippines, welcome the Philippine government’s undertaking in improving the health of the children by taking safe and effective deworming chewable tablets.

In said activity, some of the parents felt regret that they’re not able to respond the DOH program. Realizing that if they’re the one to buy the deworming tablet it will cost a lot while the DOH just offered free. Said activity was successful through the leadership of the following: Grade level chairman of Salawagan Central Elementary School Grade-1 Mrs. Maricel A. Salan Grade-2 Ms. Arsenia B.

Drop-out among students is one of problems facing Department of Education in the current time. True however, there can be economic, societal, and equity reasons causing some students to decide in leaving school. One common cause is the problem on student characteristics. In an article published online by American authors John H. Tyler and Magnus Lofstrom, student characteristics associated with a higher probability of dropping out, often called student “Risk Factors,” are both numerous and oft-cited as Drop-out Predictors. Poor school performance is a strong predictor of dropping out of school such as low test scores, course failure, and grade retention. In addition to that, poor student engagement could also encourage drop-

Managing the entire school and keeping it as a positive learning environment is a big responsibility abided to school administration, headed by a principal. I creating such, it takes a lot of improvement in both inside content and outside demeanors. The goal of a school is to be a venue of quality, equitable and culture-based learning; and to be an institution that is child-friendly, gender-sensitive, safe and motivating environment for students. First to be considered in providing this kind of environment is the physical demeanours. Schools are encouraged to be physically ready to cater the need of students. In Santa Fe Elementary School, different programs and projects has been implemented, making its school conducive

to learning and an advocate for positive learning, following the need of 21st century pupils. In the current and past years, the school has undergone a lot of improvement, a product of successful collaboration among its entire school teachers and staff, in the lead and initiation of their principal, then GPTA, School IGP and private entities. The projects are also successful through assistance and support coming from Bukidnon Provincial Government, Municipality of Libona, Barangay Santa Fe Local Government Unit, GPTA, School IGP, private individuals and other stakeholders. Completed and supplied projects include construction of school fence, rehabilitation of school stage, rehabilitation of pathways and landscapes, painting of buildings, improvement of classrooms, construc-

Each of the subject in school is created in order to improve whatever skills and areas of intelligence students are into. English is one of the subjects offered even on the first grade.

It involves learning of alphabets, words, phrases, verbs, construction of paragraphs, subject and verb agreement, diction, pronunciation and so much more. English is a subject that tackles a lot of topics, helpful to express personal thoughts

and ideas with confidence and meaningful content. Learning how to express oneself concisely and accurately is not a simple task. If one want to write a good term paper, report or e-mail that would earn respect, a student has to be a

good communicator. Constructing an article that includes clear and descriptive detail helps the reader get a full understanding of the topic being discussed. English classes are like stepping stones to a lifetime of reward. In order to gain

a successful career and not end up with a dead-end job, a particular individual must be educated and must have good communication skills. Further, achieving good communication skills is the fundamental taught in English class.

outs. This is often measured through absenteeism and discipline problems. Family characteristics also affect student performance that could possibly result to drop-out among children. It is also considered as the most important predictor of schooling achievement. The socio-economic status of the family is one of the strongest reason for drop-outs. This is due to parental education, kind of occupation and cost of income. In a survey, children often select to leave school and help their parents earn living. Children, no matter what, should be encouraged to attend school for it does not just affect their present self but as well the future they would live. Thus, schools and parents should look into this. Drop-out is a serious problem that should be addressed.

“INCREASE MORAL AND FINANCIAL SYSTEM FOR FILIPINOS” By Sara Castor and Marionne Mabalot

DAVAO City -- (Ret) Col. Nolasco promoted his advocacy “to increase moral and financial system for filipinos” through CONSLA, he said during an interview. CONSLA was build on mutual trust and group solidarity to meet the needs of individuals in the group, including Police, Militar, Vendors, Media, Teachers, Govt. Employees, and especially regular employees receiving minimum wage. Aiming not only to save, but to help empower each other to initiate developmental strategies through collective action. To champion the socio-economic interests of the marginalized sector of the Philippine society. “Focusing on the needs

of the filipino people; their liberation from poverty, the delivery of genuine reforms towards a more balanced, equitable and sustainable socia-economic growth thru savings and financial loan assistance” Their objective is to c h a mp i o n t h e s o c i o economic interest of the marginalized sector of the Philippine society, which have been under represented particularly in the country’s political system hence explaining the reason why their political interest and concerns could not be effectively advanced and promoted. CONSLA is open for individuals who wants to join, and enjoy the benefits including scholarship programs and other.

from page A4 is more of an insult than a blessing to Binay. Their inability to get the best running mate should make Roxas and Binay ponder on some realities hounding them. No one in his right mind truly wants to partner with a perceived sure loser. Both should admit the fact that at this point, they are not in the people’s radar to replace Aquino after his term ends in 2016. Of course, this reality should challenge both Roxas and Binay to assess their respective strategies in selling themselves to the people. But praying that Poe will not run should not be one of them. They should prepare for the worst and the worst scenario for them is that they’ll be facing Poe in next year’s election. But I am not saying Poe can’t be beaten. But at the rate Roxas and Binay are faring in regard their search for a vice presidential candidate to tandem with them, this early they should already kiss goodbye to their desire to succeed Aquino. Until such time that they are able to prove their ability to win, they will continue to be hounded by this problem of not having the best running mate. Both should be able to understand the biblical teaching of putting new wine in old wineskins if they want to have a chance to succeed Aquino next year.

from page A4 it would test the constitutionality of RA 10531 should the CDA or the Corporation Code prevail, these cooperatives would still be required to submit reportorial requirements to the NEA for purposes of regulation. Something is not very sound with this law, which was crafted in 2012 to make it more difficult to convert electric cooperatives into genuine cooperatives. The truth however remains that for electric cooperatives to become genuine, they have to practice cooperative principles. By doing so, they put the power of this important utility in the hands of the people – the consumer owners – and then enjoy some of the privileges afforded genuine cooperatives like tax exemption. Converting to genuine stock cooperatives has become too difficult because of the callousness of some government agencies created under the cloud of dictatorship to adhere to democratic principles. In fact, the Supreme Court in a July 23, 2003 ruling in Philreca (Phil. Rural Electric Cooperative Association) vs Bureau of Local Government Finance (BLGF) has ruled that these NEA electric cooperatives cannot enjoy the privilege of tax exemption as they are not genuine cooperatives because they do not practice cooperative principles as provided for in our laws. Philreca had questioned the collection of local government taxes, invoking the privilege of tax exemption of cooperatives. They said levying taxes on electric cooperatives violates the equal protection clause of the Constitution.

But the Supreme Court thinks otherwise, it ruled that because NEA electric cooperatives do not practice cooperative principles as provided for in RA 6938 or the Cooperative Code of the Philippines, and thus they cannot enjoy the privilege of tax exemption.

from page A7 mosquito. After the bite of an infected mosquito, onset of illness occurs usually between four and six days but can range from two to 11 days; -Most commonly, the mosquitoes involved are Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus, to species which can also transmit other mosquito-borne viruses including Dengue; -Mosquito bites occur throughout daylight hours but the peak is early morning and late afternoon. So be conscious of these hours especially when travelling; -There is no specific drug treatment or vaccine for Chikungunya. Treatment is directed at relieving the symptoms; -Symptoms may include headache, muscle pain, joint swelling, or rash but the most common is fever, and joint pain which may persist for months. If this happens, seek immediate medical attention for proper evaluation and management.

from page A1 In a text message, Police Regional Office (PRO) 11 spokesperson Supt. Antonio Rivera identified the victim as Gregorio T. Ybañez, 67. He was also a member of the board of directors of the Davao del Norte Electric Cooperative (DANECO). The shooting happened 10:25 p.m. Tuesday when the victim was about to enter his home at Purok Santan, Barangay Magugpo North in Tagum when unidentified gunmen on board a Honda Fit vehicle shot him several times, police said. The suspects fled immediately after the shooting. The victim was immediately rushed to the Bishop Regan Memorial Hospital where he was revived. But he died at 5:55 a.m. on Wednesday. Authorities recovered from the crime scene six cartridge cases and three slugs. Authorities are conducting investigation to determine identities of the suspects and establish the motive behind the killing. Ybañez also served as president of the Davao del Norte Press and Radio-TV Club. In a separate text message, Presidential Communication Operations Office head Herminio Coloma condemned the killing. “The PNP is tasked with pursuing the suspects and bringing them to the bar of justice,” he said. Another broadcast journalist, Rogelio “Tata” Butalid, was murdered in Tagum City in December 11, 2013.

from the suspects. Gonda said 33 assorted ammunitions and several drug paraphernalia were also confiscated from the suspects. Pontillas said Edmar had previously been arrested for possession of illegal drugs and was imprisoned. However, he said Edmar was released from prison after the fire levelled the Hall of Justice in December last year. Police operatives are still conducting hot pursuit operations against the 3 alleged lookouts who managed to escape during the buy-bust operations. Pontillas said the still unidentified lookouts are also armed.

from page A8 the Philippine Eagle persist amid efforts of PEF and its partners to educate the public about the importance of the national bird to the ecosystem. Andrea Baldonado, PEF fund-raising officer, said March this year that the eagle is still being hunted in the wilds, even if the number of cases dwindled over the years. “Threats to the Philippine Eagle remain constant,” Baldonado said. “These [human induced activities] include hunting and deforestation.” The foundation continues with its efforts to educate people who live near the nesting sites of the eagles in the uplands. The critically endangered Philippine Eagle is found nowhere else in the world except in only four islands of the country. PEF estimates that there are only 400 pairs remaining in the wild. Mt. Hamiguitan, an estimated 30,000-hectare forest and a UNESCO World Heritage site, was supposed to be home to Pamana after being under the care of PEF. Before being released to the wild, Pamana went through rehabilitation in the Philippine Eagle Center (PEC) in Davao since she was rescued from the mountains of Iligan City. She arrived in the center in April 2012, originating from Gabunan Range in Iligan City. According to PEC curator Anna Sumaya, she was found by a local perched on a tree near a creek appearing weak and docile; it was later found out that she had a gunshot on her left breast and on her left wing. Joselin Marcus Fragada, regional director of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources, said that a team assigned in protected areas has already been dispatched to investigate this incident further. From there and when they get the full story, he said that they can determine sanctions for the perpetrators. He said that he, too, is bothered by these sorts of activities. He called on the public to be more involved and educated with preserving endangered animals like the Philippine Eagle. “I truly hope that the public take this seriously because hunting is not a game,” he said. Pamana is the 15th eagle released by PEF since 1986. Bird watching Robby Alabado III, director of the Department of Tourism in Region 11, confessed that he cried when he heard about Pamana being shot. Alabado was present during the release of Pamana last June. He pondered on why we can’t protect the bird, which

he believes also has a strong cultural value to the country and to the community. “Eagles are supposed to be born to fly free,” he said. He nevertheless lauds the PEF for its tireless efforts in eagle conservation. Alabado said that one of DOT’s thrusts to bring people to the country is to hold bird watching tours for high end markets. The bird watching community, he said, always looks out for the Philippine Eagle and are willing to pay just to see it. Bird watchers will still visit the country and will be looking at how government takes care of the environment. The most critical thing about Pamana’s death in terms of tourism is how Mt. Hamiguitan is involved. The area is a UNESCO World Heritage site and now it’s become the same place where an endangered animal died. “This is going to be a loud wake up call for our government and stakeholders to work together to protect the reputation of the country,” Alabado said. “We need to redeem ourselves by taking drastic action against wild bird hunters and trappers.” Alabado, who is a bird watcher himself, said “the economic value of wild birds for tourism purposes is very high considering that foreign tourists go the extra mile to come to our country and to its rural areas just to see where the wild birds are.” Animal rights organization People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) condemned the act of cruelty to the eagle. “All animals – regardless of what kind – want to live freely, be able to raise families, and socialize with friends. Pamana’s freedom was cut short and the shooter should be found and charged to the full extent of Philippine law. Shooting animals in the wild is a coward’s pastime. Hunters use animals as mere targets and they lack empathy, understanding, and respect for living creatures. PETA condemns this act of cruelty,” Rochelle Regodon, PETA Asia-Pacific campaign manager, said in an email. According to an article from the PEF website written by Jayson Ibanez, PEF Director for Research and Conservation, Pamana was “soft-released” through a “hacking” method. “This procedure involves caging the bird at the release site for at least two weeks prior to setting it free. This adjusted or acclimatized the bird to local conditions,” he wrote. “After release, supplemental food will be offered just in case he finds it hard to hunt. The bird will have a GPS satellite tag to allow remote monitoring and a VHF (radio) transmitter so biologists can track its location in real time,” Ibanez said.

The family thanked the military and the police, as well as, Mayor Moreno for helping them. Rod Ullyses said the Abu Sayyaf Group contacted them by phone, through his sister Carlota Joy, to ask for ransom money in exchange for SN1 Pagaling’s freedom. The family said the Abu Sayyaf had initially asked for P200 million, went down to P100 million, P50 million, P10 million and P3 million. But, the Pagaling family who are residents of Carmen, Cagayan de Oro, cannot afford the ransom money. At one point, Rod Ullyses said, the Abu Sayyaf got mad at them and raised the ransom demand back to P10 million.
