DTI-Davao reminds stores on ‘Sales Promo’ policy Your Mindanao-wide Community Newspaper

D

AVAO CITY -- The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) in Davao Region has reminded business establishments to clearly state their sales promotion period as provided in the Consumer Act of the Philippines.

The agency made the statement in line with its intensified campaign against unscrupulous conduct of sales promotion as part of the efforts to uphold the rights of consumers. Quoting the law, DTI said Republic Act 7394, or the Consumer Act of the Philippines, defines sales promotion as techniques intended for broad consumer participation which contain promises of gain, which includes a prize (either in cash or in kind) and reward for purchasing a product or service, involves

winning in a contest or game, and utilize widespread means of communication. It is also a strategy intended to increase sales, patronage and/or goodwill of a product, service or credit facilities. These sales promo campaigns are offered in different types such as holding raffles (electronic or conventional), offering discount, premium, games, contest and redemption. According to DTI, the approval of a sales promo application can only be given once it suffices four elements

Editor : CHRISTINEEditor H. CABIASA - iamxtine1992@yahoo.com : CHENG ORDOÑEZ

namely promise of gain, consumer purchase, use of mass media and duration. With these elements, there will be greater chances to achieve fairness in the conduct of sales promotion, truth in claims, guarantee in the delivery of commitments and remedies for possible violation. “We would like to reiterate that putting the phrase ‘until supply lasts’ in any sales promo activity is prohibited by law. Therefore, all establishments must ensure that the items on sale or the prizes they are giving away will last until the last day of the promo,” said Maria Belenda Q. Ambi, DTI-Davao Region Officer-in-Charge. Ambi added that any person who wants to conduct any

form or scheme for a sales promotion campaign of a consumer product, service or credit facilities which include sponsorship or game shows and similar activities must first secure a permit from DTI, from the Department of Health (DOH) for food, drugs, cosmetics and hazardous products, or from the National Meat Inspection Service (NMIS) for meat products at least 30 days prior to the actual start of

the promo period. Meanwhile, DTI clarified that no sales promo permit is needed for the following activities: sales promo campaigns sponsored by government; imported products under promo in their country of origin, excluding the Philippines; social, civic, political, religious, educational and other similar organizations conducted among their members; sponsorships of programs, concerts, game

shows and similar activities, political, religious and institutional advertisements presented for public service, education or information, health, environment and development or desirable values and similar activities. Ambi also urged the public to report any establishment running a sales promo campaign without a permit to the nearest DTI office. (PNA) LAP/BNB/LCM/JENNY GRACE M. MENDOZA/LDP

PCCI pushes for inclusive business climate By Kris M. Crismundo

MANILA -- The country’s largest business group, Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PCCI) eyes inclusive business climate by supporting the local businesses. PCCI Honorary Chairman Sergio Ortiz-Luis, during the Tourism Investment Forum in Pasay City on Tuesday, said the business group is proactive for the growth of local small and medium enterprises (SMEs). Ortiz-Luis cited PCCI’s initiatives to support local SMEs which include its Business Matrix Program (BMP) that targets to link SMEs to big companies in the country as well as to improve access to finance; infrastructure development; food security efforts; strengthening the education system; and its Green Philippines Island of Sustainability (GPIoS)

aiming for sustainable industrial development of Metro Manila and Region IV-A, “In the area of infrastructure development, we have been very vocal with our advocacy to prioritize critical infrastructure projects that are urgently needed and can generate the highest impact,” Ortiz-Luis said. “These include power generation and transmission, water supply, seamless road network, airport development and flood mitigation. This is even made more critical given the impact of climate change which is expected to bring in more heavy rains in the country,” he added. “Private sector is also involved in promoting and tapping corporate social responsibility programs of companies, particularly the

large ones, to generate more and better-quality jobs especially for the middle class,” he noted. The PCCI executive said the strengthened collaboration among private sector, government, and other stakeholders will help the country to be globally competitive by improving the quality and productivity of SMEs. Ortiz-Luis said the country can overcome the middle-income trap by having an inclusive business climate. “A poorer country may not have as much resources, but can still benefit if it uses its limited resources efficiently to help uplift the lives of its people,” he said. “Towards this goal, we commit to work with government to hurdle the bumps along the narrow road to inclusive and sustainable progress,” he added.

Countering a fraudulent election Did we say that we need an honest and credible presidential and local elections in 2016? Of course, but, what is the measure of an honest and credible elections when the credibility of the Commissions on Elections (COMELEC) is tainted with doubts and suspicions? Matter of fac t, t he COMELEC has been at the mercy of those who run the affairs of the government. In other words, the COMELEC is beholden to the wishes of the people in Malacanang that whatever the Palace wants, Malacanang gets. Thus, no matter how trusted the people at the COMELEC are, the experiences in the past have institutionalized the doubts that the people always questioned the result of the electoral processes especially involving candidates who are running under the political party of the administration. However, despite the apprehension, we still want to be optimistic of the conduct of the presidential and local elections in 2016. Otherwise, the people should be ready to fight for what is essential to the exercise of the right

of suffrage. One should not be cowed by the threats and the menacing machinery of the administration candidates. The administration controls the police, the military and the teachers of the Department of Education (DepEd) who is assigned to the various polling places in the country. Before the actual election takes place, the administration would see to it that all of the important players are in place. The military and police commanders are on orders to protect the interest of the administration candidates. Apart from the military and the police, the COMELEC and the teachers

are also under instructions to do whatever it takes to protect the favored candidates of the administration. By the way, the COMELEC decided to rent 94,000 new Precinct Count Optical Scanner (PCOS) machines from the Smartmatic, the company that sells the dreaded PCOS machines, which were employed in the 2013 elections. The price for the lease is only Php 7 billion! This time, however, it would no longer be called PCOS, but Optical Mark Reader (OMR). They are different, but of the same color, so to speak. In the past elections, the COMELEC would call key officials of the Division of Schools to a meeting, a month before the elections, in the guise of training. During this period, the COMELEC would provide the teachers “important instructions” on how to operate the OMR. Along the way, the COMELEC would announce the delivery of the OMR machines. The media would then be invited to witness that the OMR machines are working properly during

a trial run at the precinct level. Of course, 90 percent, if not all the OMR machines, would work perfectly during the delivery. Well, the media would eagerly report that the machines are working well. Do not be swayed by this deceptive introduction anymore. In the 2013 presidential and local elections, the COMELEC announced that all the delivered PCOS machines in Cagayan De Oro City were working perfectly. The COMELEC even invited the local media to witness how the PCOS machines work while on top of the condition. Alas! When the election day comes, all the PCOS machines, earlier declared as fit and running perfectly, bogged down! The COMELEC then announced that the source code would undergo repairs in Manila. It would take weeks to repair the “source code.” While people who knew a little about how the technology works, nobody damn cares that the PCOS could be manipulated. That is, actually, the thinking of the majority of the voters who believed See diaz, page A11

make us lose or gain weight, nor does it make us sleep more or sleep less. It’s important to understand the difference between the two, to understand that people with depression are not just sad. Depression is when a normal human emotion gets out of hand that we cannot think our way out of it without help. It goes beyond life’s up and downs. People who are depressed can’t just pull themselves together. Comparing sadness to depression is like comparing a benign tumor to cancer. One can easily be remedied by surgery or may be left alone, while the other one is life-altering and malignant. Sadness, like surgery for a benign tumor can be painful, but depression goes beyond being painful. It is not normal and it needs medical intervention. Telling someone who is depressed that “it will go away,” or to just “think positively,” is just like telling someone with cancer that with the right attitude, they will get better. They won’t. Depressed people have a prevailing sadness that does not go away and may or may not be related to life events. They lose interest

or pleasure in the things they once enjoyed. They lose weight even when not dieting or gain significant weight (more than 5%) of body weight in a month. They may be unable to sleep or sleep excessively. They may feel restless or irritated. Fatigue and loss of energy haunts them. They feel worthless and guilty. They cannot think or concentrate and may become indecisive. Suicide might be on their minds. It might just be a desire or they may have a specific plan to carry it out. Being no stranger to depression myself, I know what it feels like. I know how dangerous it is to ignore it, wish it away, or leave it untreated. I know how

painful it is and how life altering. It feels like falling into the abyss with the abyss looking straight back at you. It feels like a subterranean grief and sadness that defines who you are. It changes your perception and you are gripped in the quagmires of despair. If you or your loved one feels like this nearly every day for at least two weeks to the point that it interferes with your daily activities, you may be depressed. Depression is very real. It is not just “all in the mind,” it’s in the brain. It alters brain chemistry so that it cannot be cured without medication and therapy. I urge you then to seek help. There’s too much suffering in the world to suffer unnecessarily, when help is available.

Australian physicians in Oro for 10-day surgery outreach By MARK FRANCISCO, Staff Writer

AN eight-person medical team from Interplast Australia once again trooped to Cagayan de Oro for ten days last August to hold surgeries for cleft palate reconstruction and realignment. Now on its 17th year, the Put a Smile project of Interplast Australia has netted a total of 77 beneficiaries who have cleft palate deformities, some coming from as far as Visayas.

Persons who have these deformities usually suffer from low self-esteem and difficulty in social interactions with others. “We have patients coming from Boracay, North

Cotabato and Zamboanga,” reported Mar Paano, the chair of the Put a Smile leg in Cagayan de Oro this year. Interplast Australia is a not-for-profit organization working to improve the quality of life for people with disability as a result of congenital or acquired medical conditions such as cleft lip palate or burn scar contractures. They do this

by sending fully qualified Australian and New Zealand volunteer plastic and reconstructive surgeons, anesthetists and allied health professionals elsewhere in Asia Pacific to provide free surgical treatment for patients who could otherwise not be able to afford access to such services.

Panabo farmers ask NIA, local government to repair irrigation system By Antonio L. Colina IV of MindaNews

DAVAO City––Farmers appealed to the city government of Panabo, Davao del Norte and National Irrigation Administration (NIA) to repair the damaged irrigation system that supplies water to about 5,000 hectares of rice plantations in the city. In an interview at the sidelines of Kapehan sa Dabaw at SM City Davao on Monday, Peter Edulantes, a farmer of Barangay Southern Davao, said several farmers had stopped planting rice as vast tracts of land had dried up after the 10-km irrigation system spanning 12 barangays was damaged by Typhoon Pablo. The irrigation system was still serving a portion of neighboring Carmen town, also in Davao del Norte, he said. Edulantes said the irrigation canals had gone through four repairs already since NIA built it in 2009. But he said NIA did not use concrete but only piled sandbags which were easily damaged. He said weeds had covered the rice fields and most farmers have incurred income losses as they could no longer plant the crop. See farmers, page A11

Quake, tsunami drills in Oplan ANDAM 2

D

AVAO DEL NORTE – Coastal communities prone to storm surge and tsunami, as well as, barangays within the fault lines get the priority in the second phase of the feted disaster preparedness program of the province. After the successful implementation of the first edition of the Oplan A.N.D.A.M. (Advocacy on Natural Disaster Awareness and Management) program in 66 flood-prone barangays, the province will launch Oplan A.N.D.A.M. 2 to teach people how to get to safer grounds in the event of earthquakes, tsunamis and storm surges. The Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and

Management Council approved the start of the Oplan A.N.D.A.M. 2 next month, during its regular session last August 24, 2015 at the Bulwagan ng Lalawigan. Romulo Tagalo, Executive Director of the Provincial Climate Change Adaptation and Disaster Risk Reduction and Management (CCA-DRRM) Council said the upgraded program aims to teach the

communities the telltale signs of impending landslides, storm surges and tsunamis. “We will implement this for the community people to be aware of the evacuation routes, warnings and signals,” he said. Tagalo stress ed the significant role of the concerned government agencies during the actual evacuation drill in the twoday event. He revealed the first day will feature synchronized workshop on basic first aid and life-saving techniques, security and safety, evacuation camp management, animal safety, coastal resource management, critical incident stress debriefing, warnings and signages, and technical and logistics assistance.

The actual community drill will be held on the second day, mobilizing all barangay functionaries and ordinary folks on site. A feedback session will be held after the drill, highlighting the lessons learned and the improvements that need to be put in place to increase awareness, including modifications to the sign locations and the routes to make the evacuation easier. Governor Rodolfo del Rosario welcomed the innovation as a “very important intervention to ensure zero casualty in big earthquakes, storm surges and tsunamis.” Four barangays will benefit from the program this year, while over 20 more barangays will be served next year.

The Hidden Costs of Complexity Big returns and better performance await companies willing tostrip away the complexities that prevent them from competing with faster, leaner challengers.

By Ryan Poggi Managing Director SAP Philippines

Taguig, Philippines -- August 26, 2015 - Global corporations must watch the startup activities in the Silicon Valley the same way a Jack Russell looks at Dobermans. “You’re not even my species.” The startups have an agility and flexibility that their larger, established brethren crave, but they are weighed down by complexity. In fact, the top 200 global companies lose 10.2 percent or $237 billion of profits due to the hidden costs of complexity (Global Simplicity). Complexity hides throughout organizations indecision making, business processes, and technology. Complexity is so insidious that it prevents organizations from bringing good ideas to the marketplace profitably, and it wastes time. According to BCG’s Complexity Report, large organizations can spend between 40 to 80 percent of their time on non-value added activities.These companies are working harder, but not realizing

results because they are spending time on activities that deliver marginal value to the organization. Left alone, complexity doesn’t get easier. Companies just get used to it. But a willingness to endure doesn’t lead to a competitive advantage in a digital world where 90 percent of the world’s data was generated in the last two years and business networks are expected to grow by 40 percent, where 9 billion people are mobile, and 212 billion “things” will be connected. Business Transformed by Simplicity A new rule of order, where simplicity takes center stage, is fundamental to business success in the digital age.In a business run with simplicity at its core, business managers from throughout the organization make decisions in the moment with less effort and more impact. Here’s how the transformations start. At a large telecommunications firm, a regional sales manager is mapping outleads for the coming quarter. He initially decides to target a big sales deal for a government agency that looks like impressive numbers, until he runs a real-time forecast of the project’s profitability, analyzing the deal structure, profit, and margin. He aggregates the data from his mobile device without sending a request out to a business analyst and waiting for a response.

Instead, he immediately gets the insight he needs and realizes thata smaller sell has much higher margins. He can improve the company’s overall financial health and bring more value to the company with less effort. Similar in-the-moment business decisions are anticipated in the food industry where engineers are developing the best chip to dip or the tastiest cookie with the fewest calories. These engineers need information from multiple business units, including focus group feedback, ingredients information, costs, and more, to turn the testing into a product ready to go to market. The data is not neatly stored in one system or even in the same format. But the disparities don’t slow the process, the engineer continues testing and improving his product until he has a winning formula. When the chip is released, marketers immediately start tracking customer trends, targeting specific customers, and developing personalized campaigns. A high volume of data across different channels can be converged and analyzed in real time to fine-tune the campaigns. With so much immediate feedback, the marketing team can put their time and money into customer segments that will provide the highest returns. Staying with the new chip

example, consider what happens when the taste engineer does find a magic recipe and the marketers reach a chip-hungry customer base. The company now has the good problem of needing to put their bags of chips on shelves throughout North America, and they can because they have simplified the overly complex process of supply chain logistics. Managing the deliveries and tracking the inventory by Excel spreadsheets is too cumbersome and slow. It also doesn’t respond and adapt automatically when trucks face unexpected delays or when product orders spike randomly. To accommodate the unexpected, everyone within the supply chain needs access to the information from whatever device they have at hand so that deliveries will reach their destination on-time and accurate,and all the participants can keep their businesses running smoothly. In businesses that thrive on simplicity, reimagining business models, business decisions, and business processes is not just possible; it’s a standard, daily activity. Simple Innovation Reaching this level of simplicity requires technology that is designed specifically to reduce complexity. With SAP S/4HANA, SAP has introduced a new business suite natively designed on the most modern in-memory platform, SAP HANA.The

solution simplifies enterprise software and leverages the advantages of a highly mobile user base, the costs savings and efficiencies of the cloud, and real-time demands. Early adopters are already experiencing results. Industry leaders across South East Asia are already reaping the benefits of reduced complexity in their businesses. In Indonesia, PT Delami Garment Industries, one of Indonesia’s leading garment producers, are implementing this new SAP S/4HANA technology in their organization. The company’s current IT system was not integrated, which led to multiple issues such as poor stock visibility, difficulty in data collection from their stores and outdated and inaccurate data, which limited intelligent decision making. Inorder to prepare for their planned business expansion, real-time data collection for better stock visibility was necessary. Leveraging the business benefits of SAP S/4HANA, PT Delami is expected to develop better planning capabilities, leading to improved stock visibility and the maintenance of healthy inventory levels, with minimized stock to sales ratio. SAP S/4HANA’s in-memory technology will enhance the company’s business processes, data accuracy and allow for better distribution efficiencies,

Classroom Structuring By Sandilyn Yurong Filipino Teacher – III Patudan Elementary School Patudan, Tubod, Lanao del Norte

In order to deliver education effectively, teachers should be intelligent and creative to encourage learning among students in all forms. In schools, classroom structuring is usual but found effective. The surrounding of a learning environment is very important. It should be conducive to learning and attractive to the eyes of the students. Most creative teachers color their classrooms in pastels that could entice student attention. They also add charts to the walls, so no matter what a student is doing, he would be reminded with basic knowledge. Structuring also include installment of a mini-library and educational toys display. In some schools, points given to the class during discussions could also be converted to coupons where these will be exchangeable to items available in a Toys Store corner of the classroom. Some teachers bring audio players in their class and let children’s song play

during recess time. These are big help for students for these basic things could give them the idea that they have something to be look forward to once they enter their class homes. However, there are also disadvantages to classroom structuring, especially if the designs are already too much. It could be annoying to the eye and disturbance to children’s concentration. In addition, it would require a teacher to spend even his own money. So, a teacher must see to it that what she put in the classroom is just moderate in design, and helpful to children, instead of being a disturbance. She should make sure that materials are not so expensive so that it would not cost him more than he should spend. Classroom structuring is a very good learning strategy.

The food and other commodities are very expensive especially the fare which cost Php 2,500 one (1) way. At night, IPs use lampara to light their small nipa houses. As early as 3:00 a.m. the residents are now going to their farm which is 3 kilometers far from their homes. Fathers and older siblings in the house are away from their families for 3 to 4 days to plant crops like sweet potatoes.

Congratulations teachers, keep the best always!

Working From Home Poses Challenge to Employee Productivity and Companywide Goals company a recent study shows. First, apart from SEO industry, working from home is also practiced by other companies that operate under different industries as a way of reward system to worthy employees in their organization. Some companies regard it as a good opportunity to display it to employees merely as a reward system so the same remain trustworthy while they work from home, but the main intention is to reduce expenses on space, utility, and office supplies. Nevertheless, may it be a reward scheme or a way to reduce company operating expenses; both are no longer an effective ways to promote employees’ productivity in the organization. To illustrate, a recent study shows that telecommuters are less likely to work forty hours a week. This suggests that allowing employees to telecommute poses a big challenge to their productivity and performance in the company. Once they are off the radar or company’s monitoring system, they begin to work in their own phase far more different from the usual and effective way. Hence, when this prac-

tice becomes their new routine, they are likely to experience difficulties on some important elements that have more to do with companywide HR goals. Second, as mentioned, one of the HR goals is to ensure productivity from each working employee in the organization. This objective is realized and gauged in terms of standard working hours. Because they no longer work onsite, regardless of the company’s encouragement to play under the same rules even when they are already working from home, inevitably the telecommuters are likely to feel unbound to keep rules and regulations set and only apply in the actual workplace. Also, they see it as an opportunity that gives them liberty to develop their own rules that are not in harmony to the HR goals and play under the same condition. Thus, these rules offer leverage to complete tasks based only on the number of hours required to finish a specific job. In other words, if tasks in one day are completed in four hours or less, that concludes the business working day. Distinctively, this issue will result to violation against standard working hours and contributes negative

impact to companywide HR goals. Undeniably, some would suppose that the remaining hours be spent to redouble the tasks more than a telecommuter is assigned to complete. This is not so. Majority of what happens in the real world is the actual opposite of the assumption. Third, tasks completed without spending eight hours of honest work from home will result to telecommuter’s likability to slack-off from work. This seemingly unpleasant activity of the telecommuter is obviously offensive to company’s mission and vision goals. For example, an employee who is allowed to telecommute come from a company that requires him (apart from working onsite) to work eight hours a day; forty hours a week, well monitored in terms of job performance, paid fix monthly salary including: bonuses, premium benefits, incentives, scholarships grants for selected members in the family and etc. Under the same rules, he works as the other employees who do work in the office but failed to religiously work in standard working hours not because the tasks are completed less than eight hours. It

has more to do with the remaining hours spent to non-work related activities. Others may view it as though a fair advantage for the telecommuter, (although tasks are effectively and efficiently done) but this still hurts both the company and the telecommuter big time. Ultimately, one major misunderstanding in allowing selected employees to telecommute is to assume that it will help the company lessen operating expenses and motivate employees to incre as e pro duc t ivity. This should not be the case. Telecommute should be viewed by companies as a competitive advantage against competitors in the same industr y to increase productivity but not awarded to employees who can work onsite or living within the city where the company is physically located at or else it will hurt the company big time. Companies should only employ telecommute to employees who are living away from the city of the actual business location and employees living and working overseas, not for increasing employees’ productivity who are working onsite.

Companies particularly in Search Engine Optimization (SEO) industry allow deserving employees to telecommute. These employees should have exhibited remarkable job performance in the workplace and have contributed significantly in the ongoing success of the organization. This working status is awarded when a certain employee has successfully complied with the minimum requirements depending on what the company decision maker has set. Moreover, these outstanding employees view working from home as a relief from daily exhausting routine––reporting to office eight hours a day, forty hours a week. Ideally, one can claim that working from home offers a wonderful opportunity to desist from traditional work routine. However, as far as employees’ performance is concer ne d, working from home is not a good motivational tool to promote employee’s productivity. Instead, it poses challenges to telecommuters on some important factors that play a vital role in their job performances in the the SAP company itself. After deploying SAP Simple Finance, SAP reduced its overall footprint by moving regulatory and managerial accounting on one common platform. According to SAP CFO Luka Mucic, his team

who believed that the 2013 presidential and local election were a fraud. Well, let us extend a benefit of the doubt to Andres “Andy” Bautista, the new COMELEC chair appointed by Pres. Benigno S. Aquino III. However, it is still a must that one should be prepared to resist whatever it takes when election fraud is believed to be taking place in the conduct of the 2016 presidential elections. It is the right of the voters to fight for the right to vote the right candidates. A little doubt of election fraud in the polling places should not be taken for granted. Otherwise, those who do not deserve to be elected or reelected would regain the positions that the people really did not bestow on them. Send react/comment: crisguardian@yahoo.com

Jejomar Binay, who had declared to run for president under the United Nationalist Alliance (UNA), earlier offered a senatorial slot for Pacquiao for the 2016 elections. The PCM, which had forged an alliance with UNA, dominated the 2013 elections here and nearby Sarangani Province. “Di pa ako talaga nagdesisyon ng final. Pero marami ang nag-advise sa akin na ito na yung chance, which is may punto rin sila (I have not yet made a final decision. But a lot of people have advised me that this is my chance to run for the Senate, and they have a point),” he said. Pacquiao, who is on his second term as representative of Sarangani’s lone district, said he will make a final announcement on the matter at the right time. “Di ako nag-aannounce tonight na ako talaga ay officially running for senator. Pero malamang dyan ang pupuntahan natin (I’m not officially announcing tonight that I’m running for senator but I will likely go that way),” he added. During the gathering, which coincided with the 44th birthday of City Mayor Ronnel Rivera, the PCM formally announced its lineup for next year’s polls. Rivera and Vice Mayor Shirlyn Nograles will seek re-election along with incumbent councilors Franklin Gacal Jr., Rosalita Nunez, Ramon Milleza, Arturo Cloma, Brix Tan and Shandee Llido-Pestano. Completing the slate are incumbent San Isidro barangay chair Jose Edmar Yumang, Rep. Pacquiao’s younger brother Bobby, Dominador Lagare Jr., Rodolfo Ladrera, Jonathan Blando and Van-van Congson. The party has not yet announced a challenger for incumbent South Cotabato first district Rep. Pedro

Acharon Jr. of the Achievers with Integrity MovementLiberal Party but it earlier considered outgoing councilor Dominador Lagare III for the post. City Councilor Ruel Pacquiao, who represents the Liga ng mga Barangay in the council, was reported to likely seek Rep. Pacquiao’s seat in Sarangani should the latter decide to run for the Senate. Incumbent Sarangani Vice Gov. Geraldine “Jinkee” Pacquiao, the congressman’s wife, had declared to retire from politics so she could concentrate on taking care of her family.

The protest, led by the Alyansa ng mga Tagapagtanggol ng Wikang Filipino (Tanggol Wika), Alliance of Concerned Teachers (ACT) and Pilipinong Nagkakaisa Para sa Soberanya (PINAS), was held in celebration of Buwan ng Wika (national language month). The protesters also slammed the K12 program, and called it “a hindrance to the Filipino people.” “This K12 program and CMO 20 are anti-Filipino, and anti-development of our country,” said Aries Gupit, secretary general of LFS. “We believe that under this program the future of our youth will be bleaker.” “They are destroying the national identity of our youth, and our whole country which affects our development as a nation, and endangering the future that the youth will inherit,” he said. “This is a complete betrayal of our heroes who fought hard for freedom,” said Charisse Bañez of the League of Filipino Students (LFS), in a press release. Last April, the Supreme Court issued an indefinite temporary restraining order against the removal of Filipino as a subject, but the fight is far from over. “We are angry because this is an attack on our culture, our history, and our community as a unified nation,” said Raymond Palatino, Bagong Alyansang Makabayan-National Capital Region chairperson.

Ramon’s wife, Rosemarie, 30; and his four kids, Rose, 13; Arnold, 10; Anabelle, 9; and Ryan, 3, succumbed to multiple hack wounds on their bodies. However, the police official said Ramon spared his one-year-old daughter, Angeline. Ramon, who was arrested by barangays officials and tanods in the nearby sitio Cambangon at around 6 a.m. on August 29, also in Barangay Lilingayon, was still cuddling his daughter, Angeline, said Abanales. The arresting barangay officials and tanods managed to recover from the suspect the bladed weapon. The suspect, an alleged member of Sagrado Corazon Señor, told police investigators that prior to attacking his wife and children, he heard a voice. The voice, he said, ordered him to kill his wife and four children, except the one-year-old Anabelle. Abanales said the suspect showed signs of being “mentally disturbed” as he was not under the influence of liquor or illegal drugs during his arrest. As of press time, the police investigators are still having a hard time establishing the motive behind the gruesome killings. Angeline, who is the only survivor, is now under the custody of his grandfather Christiodes Bacalso.

Lanete said green living means the efficient use of natural resources, eco-friendly construction materials and maximizing negative impact of the development to nature. Lanete cited the 1987 Constitution, which mandates the State to protect and advance the right of the people to a balanced and healthful ecology in accord with rhythm and harmony of nature. Under the measure, RA 4726 is amended to include a provision for a survey plan and diagrammatic plan of the green spaces in the project, in sufficient detail to identify the space, its relative location and approximate dimensions which shall not be less than 25% of the total land area of the condominium project. Lanete said the bill provides a fine of P1 million to owner or developer of condominium projects who neglect or fail to establish and maintain green spaces in their projects. --Lorelei V.

Some resorted to planting corn in their rice fields only to fail because this crop would only rot when water accumulates after a heavy downpour, he said. Edulantes lamented that since 2013 the local government of Panabo and NIA had not acted on their request for repair. “Walay action among local officials. Naguba unya wala gi-repair (Our local officials have no actions. It is already damaged yet it has not been repaired),” he said. Rodolfo Singson, who owns 12 hectares of rice farm, blamed alleged government neglect for their plight. He said the last rice harvest he had was in 2013. He said some farmers had been forced to stop sending their children to school. Edulantes said farmers in Barangay Southern Davao will meet on September 2 to plan their next steps.

Education is light to life By Carlo C. Lopecillo Teacher – I Balamban Elementary School South Mahayag District Division of Zamboanga del Sur

The world is dark without education. Education is very important. Having it is like putting a light to make this world clear to see. It more like pouring water into an empty glass. Therefore, an individual should attain it. He should not be ignorant with the world he lives in, people he interacts with and things that surround him. These are matters that make him a person and mold him into someone useful in society. Thus, he should know these things better through enrolling himself and be educated. Parents play big role in inculcating the value of

education among their children. In their young age, they should be given thoughts on how enjoyable, beneficial and important schooling is. They should be given idea on how education would impact their future life. They should be encouraged to do good once they enter schools. Teachers also play big role in encouraging appreciation of learning among student. They should do their best in teaching and put a heart on it. Number one step in encouraging people attain education is making them believe that education is more than something.

The Alternative Learning System of Education By Ione X. Canonigo Tudela National Comprehensive High School Secondary Principal – II Division of Misamis Occidental

Education plays an important role in each individual’s life. In fact, even in younger years, parents already invest in sending their children to school for the belief that someday, this investment will give great life to their offsprings. Fact be told, however, not all children in this globe are given the opportunity to see the bright light in education. There are a number of out-of-school youths in the country. Top of the reasons is that these children are under families who cannot afford to send their members to school and complete even basic education. Alternative Learning System comes in purpose to mend this problem among Filipino families. It is a learning system in the country that provides practical option to the existing formal instruction. ALS is a form of nonformal education catering adults, persons with disabilities and out-of-school and drop-out individuals. This program gave them the chance to finish unattended

It is the Rotary Club of Cagayan de Oro which coordinates the entire program, helps the visitors identify and screen beneficiaries, provides security and inland transportation and their other needs. For this year, Interplast Australia sent in two surgeons, three anesthesiologists and three nurses. All of them automatically become honorary members of the Rotary Club of Cagayan de Oro. It is now the second year that Put a Smile was held at the JR Borja City Hospital.

The program is held outside the classroom and created in a mode that fit the distinct situations and needs of the students. It is commonly conducted in community learning centers, barangay multi-purpose halls, libraries or even at home at an agreed schedule and venue between the learners and facilitators. Moreover, each time, ALS learning facilitators such as mobile teachers, district ALS Coordinators and instructional managers spearhead the conduct of classes. ALS is one avenue to extend the access of education, even in the situations that seem unreachable and hidden. It just expresses how important education is to each one. Thus, everyone, should be responsive enough and take the opportunity provided by different programs because it is a good way to help nurture education in the country and contribute to the building of this nation.
