Upgrading of Sasa port feared to worsen traffic DAVAO City--A city councilor on Monday called on the Department of Transportation and Communication (DOTC) to conduct a further study on the possible impact of the P17-billion Sasa Port modernization project on traffic. In a privilege speech, Councilor Diosdado Mahipus expressed fear the project might worsen traffic congestion on the road leading to and from the port and neighboring areas after it becomes fully operational. “This will become a bottleneck for traffic in Sasa, once this project pushes through,” he said. He added that even some BLOOD DONATION.

Livestock PH 2015 opened Your Mindanao-wide Community Newspaper

By Susan G. de Leon

President Aquino on Thursday opened the 2015 Livestock Philippines Expo and Conference, a gathering of local and foreign stakeholders in the livestock industry held at the SMX Convention Center, Mall of Asia, Pasay City. During the event where President Aquino was the Guest of Honor, he bared his administration’s achievements in terms of livestock industry and food safety. “Our country has been

free from Avian Flu since 2005, and of Foot and Mouth Disease since 2010. These achievements alone make us eligible to export meat,” Aquino said. He added that just last

month, the World Organization for Animal Health accorded the Philippines with the highest level of recognition as a country free from FMD without vaccination, which further increases its competitiveness. “Only four ASEAN countries, the Philippines included, can boast of this recognition,” Aquino stressed. He also said that the government have increased the budget of the livestock sector

by 108 percent. “This has given us the wherewithal to increase focus on animal health by providing vaccinations and undertaking disease surveillance, among other measures, to control, if not eradicate, these animal diseases,” he said. The President said that key legislation have been passed in Congress to promote food safety including amending the Meat Inspection Code, which imposes stricter fines

South Cotabato eyes more EU investments

The provincial government of South Cotabato is targeting to attract more investors from the European Union (EU) in the next three years with the rollout in the area of the EU and Germany-backed Partnership for Integrity and Jobs Project or Project I4J. South Cotabato Gov. Daisy Avance-Fuentes said Tuesday they consider the initiative as a vehicle that could draw major investment and business ventures to the province from companies based in the EU. Co-funded by the EU and the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development through

KAS, Project I4J focuses on the development of integrity mechanisms and business promotion procedures in all its pilot areas through the help of the private and business sectors. “The program mainly aims to create model local government units (LGUs) for integrity. The key result is to have a local government system that is free of corruption and red tape,” Fuentes said. The governor said Project I4J chose the province as among the pilot areas when it was launched last year after passing its requirements. The local government also

signified to implement the necessary reforms that will facilitate the establishment of a model LGU for integrity, she said. Since its launching in the second quarter of 2014, the provincial government’s key officials and personnel have underwent a series of capacity-building trainings in connection with the program’s implementation. The local government is currently working on the rationalization of its business permits and licensing system with the help of Project I4J. Fuentes said the province is not getting any direct financial benefit out of the project but it will reap tremendous opportunities once it becomes successful. “If we eventually eliminate

red tape and set in a system with integrity, businesses will come in and that means job opportunities for our residents,” she added. Aside from South Cotabato, the Project I4J is implemented in eight other areas or localities in the country. These are the cities of Cagayan de Oro in Misamis Oriental, San Carlos in Negros Occidental and Puerto Princesa in Palawan; Naujan town in Mindoro, Tuburan town in Cebu and the Iranun towns of Maguindanao; and, the provinces of Mindoro Oriental and Cebu. Project I4J targets local government leaders and officials, civil society, small business leaders and potential investors as primary beneficiaries. (PNA)

for food safety violations, perhaps most prominently the transport or sale of the so-called “hot meat.” “There is also the Food Safety Act of 2013, which strengthens our food regulatory system to better protect consumer health and facilitate our food exports,” the President said. Since its inception in 2011, Livestock Philippines has attracted global stakeholders that almost 80% of the

exhibitors for this year’s show are foreign companies. Aside from the wide array of the state-of-the-art display of equipment and facilities on livestock production, Livestock Philippines 2015 also features pertinent seminars and discussions including the 1st ASEAN Food Conference 2015 in connection with the recently-implemented ASEAN Economic Cooperation (AEC).

SMEs upbeat for APEC meet It is the Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) that are upbeat for the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) meetings here in Iloilo, as they stand to benefit much from these. Junel Divinagracia, executive director, APEC Local Organizing Committee, said in a radio interview, that the event will have direct impact on business, SMEs and tourism in Iloilo. “This is because they manufacture items that attract visitors and tourists,” Divinagracia said. “We expect only a hundred delegates as the event in July is a gathering of small workshops, but we lately learned there are about 321 that have registered,” she further said. She added that more are expected in the September meetings, and they are expected to stay in the city’s hotels and be visiting the restaurants here. The first APEC in Iloilo City will be this July 2324, carrying the banner

“Strengthening the Capital Markets, Infrastructure Development and Financing.” Ariel Castañeda, security committee head, said in the same interview, that the entrepreneurs and businesses here can learn on how other economies improve their business. “At the same time, we can showcase our products, as we expand our knowledge of other trades and practices,” Castañeda said. Divinagracia said that the committee will see to it that visitors get a taste of Ilonggo food as local chefs will showcase their native cuisines, as well as the local delicacies will be displayed in hotels where guests are staying. Meanwhile, she also assured that the city and the provincial government officials are working closely to provide the guests and delegates all the opportunities to see the best of Iloilo.

programs will certainly result in explicitly circumventing the national policies—i.e. mandates of RA 9003 and DENR administrative orders—and such circumventing will impact on the quality of the environment, which will thus lead to endangering public health, welfare, and security of the city residents,” the CSWMB said. Aside from setting the city as a non-complying LGU to the mandatory requirement of RA 9003 or the Ecological Solid Waste Management Act of 2000, “the effect of the zero budget…will also imperil the lives of Kagay-anons and visitors due to contaminated groundwater from percolation of leachate and climate change as methane gas build up causes spontaneous combustion and contribute to ozone layer depletion due to continued usage of the existing dumpsite. In short, zero budget in this regard is going to kill Kagay-anons one after the other,” the Board pointed out.

Members who signed the letter were lawyer Beda Joy Elot (vice chairman), Eileen San Juan (vice chairman), Councilor Zaldy Ocon (Environment Committee Chairman of the City Council), Alice Cheryl Sumalinog (president, Junkshop Association), Engr. Cerael Donggay (President, Oro Chamber of Commerce), Edwin Dael (OIC CLENRO), Engr. Isidro Borja (OIC CPD Officer), Ernesto Neri (president, Oro Youth Development Council), Rochelle Mordeno (executive director, BMFI), Engr. Jane Docalos (city DILG director), Dr. Fe Bongcas (city health officer), and Dennise Gonzales (president, NSTP Educators Association, Region 10). Yan Lam Lim, ex-officio member of the City Council by virtue of being president of the Liga ng mga Barangay, was the lone member who did not sign the letter. According to CLENRO, each Kagay-anon produces 76 kilograms of garbage daily. And the city has an estimated 600,000 population. More or less, the city generates 500 tons of garbage a day. “We are earnestly asking the time of the honorable members of

the City Council to reflect on the dire need of the City to address the crucial issues and concerns with regard to efficient solid waste generation and disposal. And may you reconsider with urgency and compassion for the citizenry the allocation for the implementation of solid waste management programs because, as pointed out in this letter, we are talking in this instance about the life and death of Kagay-anons,” the CSWMB members said in closing the letter. CLENRO IEC officer Edgardo Naguio said recently that what the City Council is doing is “a manifestation of the opposition’s disinterest in solving our garbage problem” because of politics. “Politics is a hindrance to the proper solid waste management [in the city],” he said. The second letter, dated May 22, 2015 and addressed to City Council Secretary Arturo de San Miguel, was received based on the time stamp on June 2, 2015. In it, Fr. Yap and the CSWMB members requested “a dialogue with the members of the City Council in their most convenient time to present and discuss the dire need of the city relative to SWM in order to address the

urgent concerns of solid waste generation and disposal.” But until now, the oppositiondominated City Council has yet to reply to the letters. The city’s 17-hectare controlled dumpsite/landfill in Upper Dagong, Carmen continues to operate beyond its designed capacity of 1.10 million cubic meters of garbage despite an issuance by EMB on June 2, 2010 of an Authority to Close (ATC). CLENRO estimates the volume of garbage dumped there are now more than 4 million cubic meters. The continued usage of the Upper Dagong controlled dumpsite/landfill is a clear violation of RA 9003. Section 37 of the law states that “no open dumps shall be established and operated, nor any practice or disposal of solid waste by any person, including LGUs, which constitutes the use of open dumps for solid waste, be allowed after the effectivity of this Act: Provided, That within three (3) years after the effectivity of this Act, every LGU shall convert its open dumps into controlled dumps, in accordance with the guidelines set in Section 41 of this Act: Provided, further, That no controlled dumps shall be

CAGAYAN de Oro City--Months after formally asking Vice Mayor Ian Caesar Acenas and the City Council to reconsider their “zero budget” decision and for a dialogue to find a solution to the city’s garbage problem, Fr. Roberto “Bobby” Yap and the City Solid Waste Management Board (CSWMB) have yet to receive a formal reply. Fr. Yap is the president of the Xavier University-Ateneo de Cagayan. He is also chairman of the CSWMB. “No, we are still patiently waiting for them to reply to the letters we sent them. But until now they continue to snub us,” a CSWMB member from the private sector who refused to be named said. The first letter to Acenas, dated January 22, 2015 and signed by CSWMB chairman Fr. Yap and all CSWMB members, was received by the Office of the Vice Mayor on February 6, 2015, 4:31pm based on the time stamp on the copy of the letter this paper obtained. In it, the CSWMB expressed disappointment at the City Council for its decision to appropriate zero budget to the city’s solid waste management. It was sent days after the City Council approved Ordinance 12903-2014 known as the 2015 General Appropriations Ordinance of Cagayan de Oro City which appropriated zero and reduced the budget of vital programs/projects relative to solid waste management of the city. This letter, 4 pages long, narrated the problems of the city with regard to solid waste and the pertinent laws the address them. It also listed the city’s proposed SWM programs for 2015 that needed appropriation and the implications if these are not implemented. “Non-implementation of the

Dengue is caused by the infected day-biting female Aedes mosquito, which transmits the viral disease to humans. As a prevention and control, the DOH keeps on advising and educating the public to search and destroy the dengue mosquito through participation in keeping their environment clean. These can be done by covering water drums and pails, replace water in the flower vase once a week, clean gutters of leaves and debris, collect and dispose all unused cans, bottles, jars and other materials that can store water which may become breeding sites, etc. The agency also advised public to wear long pajamas or pants and long sleeve shirts so that they can be protected from mosquito bites.

Sustaining the Economics of Nature DINAGAT ISLAND is positioned direct to the assaulting waves of the Pacific Ocean where devastating typhoons originate and gather its strength. Since climate change became a real danger, nothing was heard that the island incurred serious typhoon damage. It is by distance, 200 kilometers in radius from Hinatuan, Surigao del Sur, where PAGASA has set up a weather station to detect low pressure areas and howlers before it enters the PAR of our country. The island is formidable to natural calamities that brings storm surges, flooding and wind gust. From the sky if one looks down from the plane window, as the lone commercial airline, Zest Air, maneuvers for landing, one sees the natural green foliage of Mangroves in the island shores, in fact thousands of hectares of Mangroves is estimated in abundant. Mangrove forest is a known fish sanctuary and breeding ground for crabs and shrimps. A mature tree produced a chemical that serves as aquatic nutrients

that feeds the clams and shells normally eaten by migratory birds to regain their loss weights while flying from long journey. People take for granted the importance of Mangroves, in many parts of our country; the trees are cut to give way to fish ponds or beach resort constructions. Farmers peel off the inner bark to extract the skin made as coloring for a popular native coconut brew called “Tuba”. Children, cut the tree branches then dried to firewood to cook meals for the household. That explains why the 500,000 hectares of Mangroves in 1920 is down to 110,000 hectares today. The country’s defense against natural calamities brought by storms has been decimated by the men whom it is protecting. It is continuously threatened by commercialization and big business. Maybe, we have not reached the point in the past of thorough education among our coastal population to protect this tree species from human predators. Government only realized its importance once

Traversing the Tourism Hi-way

Ped T. Quiamjot the cost of typhoon and coastal flooding starts to erode the calamity funds in its vault. Why is this happening? The Bureau of Fisheries in this country produced statistical data, that a Mangrove eco-system is valued at USD 1.325 Million per hectare. Because of the remaining Mangroves forest, our total coastal fish harvest was worth USD 83 Million in 2013. Fish variety caught in the deep oceans has another valuation amounting to USD 160 Million. We could have produced more volume of fish harvest if our Mangrove forest has the same area as in 1920?

Is Mangrove re-forestation difficult? Elementary school children can plant for fun. Civic organizations do this as a community service project while the Fishermen who depend 75 percent of their catch from the Mangrove sanctuaries should even be encouraged to plant more. Dinagat Island, aside from being known as the Mangrove capital of the country, has the best variety of Snappers, sold in the market as “Lapu-Lapu” an expensive fish that is always in the menu of big restaurants and hotels in Manila, Cebu and Davao City. Many foreign tourists love to feast on our fresh seafood’s catch but the supply is getting scarce from Surigao, Zamboanga and Palawan, not because of the high demand in the big cities, but it is the supply that is declining. While dining in Davao City, in jest, the Waiter of a big Chinese Restaurant quipped, “Daghan unta kami ug halin, if the stocks were still available”.

Congratulations! -oooSERVING OTHERS, THE ROTARY WAY: Come to think of it, Rotary’s motto, “service above self ”, seems heavily inspired by the Bible, particularly 1 Peter 4:10 which says, “Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.” Indeed, whatever wealth, riches, good health, or any other good thing that we

maybe having in our respective lives today all came from God. There is nothing that we have that God did not give us, in His great mercy and love for each of us who believe in Him. It is therefore only but fitting that we should thank God for all these blessings all the time. How do we thank God? By sharing what we have with other people, particularly those who are in real need, those who are really poor. Jesus, our God and Savior, highlighted this form of thanking Him in Matthew 25, when He clarified that those who gave food and drinks to the hungry, who visited the sick and the jailed, and who clothed the naked, did all those good things to Him. -oooROTARIANS HAVE DONE GREAT THINGS: Lyne Abanilla, a top executive of top Philippine newspaper Manila Bulletin, recognized Rotary’s selfless efforts to serve the needy in the world. Here is a speech she delivered in Bali, Indonesia on September 22, 2011, during a meeting of Asian Rotarians: “Extraordinary Rotarians… have done great things, touching people’s lives and improving com-

munities, never get tired doing and never get tired serving. “We provide safe drinking water because water is life. We help build schools, homes and bridges. We help build clinics, hospitals and make sure health concerns of the communities are addressed. We provide prosthesis to amputees that dramatically changed their lives. “We sponsor health care missions and healed hundreds of patients; sponsored surgical operations on cleft, cataract and even heart surgeries and other medical interventions. We offer scholarship grants and sent poor but deserving students to school… We plant trees and clean drainages to make sure our environment is clean…” -oooPLEASE LISTEN: “Ang Tanging Daan” (The Sole Way), a Bible study and prayer session on radio, airs Mondays to Fridays, 6:30 p.m. to 7 p.m., at DWAD 1098 kHz on the AM band.

Fortun says no to ‘pa-epal’ By PAT SAMONTE Caraga Regional Editor

BUTUAN City -- This p ol iti c i an d o e sn’t want his activities announced and become the center of attention. Neither does he wish to make his name placed on posters or streamers or etched in marble for his advocacies or programs as a public official. That is why enterprising local journalists have to devise ways to be able to cover the solon’s activities here. Agusan del Norte First District Rep. Lawrence Lemuel Fortun made this clear in a message during the inauguration of a road concreting project in Barangay Agusan Pequeño here Monday. According to Fortun, his aversion to “epal” was because the project came into being on a recommendation by the Agusan Pequeño Sangguniang Barangay led by Chairman Larry Abuzo. “As a member of the House Committee on Appropriations, I just did my work as your representative by including in the budget this undertaking in the list of projects in my district. This did not mean that I own the project because it simply is not.”

Fortun stressed that funding for the undertaking came from taxes the people paid. “It’s you who own this project because you paid for it,” he said. The young solon impressed upon the village officials and residents witnessing the program that public or government projects funded by taxes are owned by the people and no public official or functionary has the right to claim credit for their completion.

While our customer satisfaction survey reveals that respondents are satisfied with their online shopping experience, there is an untapped opportunity to reach out to non-online shoppers by highlighting the benefits of online shopping and thus changing their perceptions,” said InancBalci, CEO of Lazada Philippines. As an eCommerce leader in the Philippines, Lazada provides consumers with an effortless shopping experience with its user-friendly sites and mobile apps accessible at their fingertips anytime, any day.

The study shows that 45% are worried about the security of their financial details in online transactions, while 36% of non-online shoppers are unsure about the warranty process of the items they purchase online. “There is a clear disconnect between the perceptions of non-online shoppers and what our customers experience, highlighting the need to gain consumers’ trust to dispel the barriers to online shopping.

CBCP: Let’s act on climate change now By ROY LEGARDE of CBCPNews

IT is time the country started translating words on combating climate change into action, the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) said. CBCP president Archbishop Socrates Villegas, in a statement on Monday, said this included actions by everyone: citizens, governments, and international organizations. “Advocacy of Church communities on behalf of the common good should influence policy makers and translate itself into community action as well,” Villegas said. Paris summit “Climate change has brought about suffering for nations, communities and peoples,” he said. “ When they who are in need cry out, it is not an option to respond. It is an obligation.” The CBCP called for action ahead of a Paris summit

in December. Echoing Pope Francis’ encyclical Laudato Si (Praised Be), the bishops said the people must transform words into action, keeping the poor and hungry at the center of the efforts. And since climate change is also an issue of “social justice,” the bishops said the notion of the common good must extend to future generations. ‘All persons of good will’ Villegas said there is no doubt that world leaders can tackle climate change, for example, but that is not enough. “All persons of good will must train their eyes on Paris, and by collective and communitarian action, make the issues that will be there discussed, the issues and concerns of all, for in truth, caring about climate change and its deleterious and devastating effects on all, but especially in The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) plenary assembly gathers twice a year, in January and See climate, page A11

Philrice gives rice farming tips for rainy season AN expert from the Philippine Rice Research Institute (PhilRice) is asking farmers to practice synchronized community planting, and to mechanize the harvesting and drying processes to cope with the rainy season. “Under rain-fed conditions, our farmers need to practice synchronized planting in their communities. Dry land preparation is desired, as when the rain comes, they can do directseeding. With this technique, the seeds will start to germinate within five days,” Dr. Norvie L. Manigbas, PhilRice’s head of the Plant Breeding and Biotechnology Division, said. Manigbas said that synchronized planting reduces incidence of pests and dis-

eases in a specific area, thus minimizing yield loss. Under irrigated lowland conditions, he said that land preparation should be done at the onset of heavy rains so that fields are well-soaked in water. Levees and dikes should be repaired to avoid water loss, he said. He also said that farmers can use the wet bed or the dapog method for seed establishment depending on field conditions. The PhilRice official also recommended proper drainage to avoid flooding, the use of machines during land preparation, harvesting, threshing, and drying to save time and labor. “Time is vital during the wet season, especially

during harvest. As the rain usually comes in the afternoon, we suggest the use of combine harvester to hasten harvesting operations. If it is unavailable, farmers can use reaper and collect the straws for threshing,” Manigbas said, adding that “it is important to finish these field operations in the shortest possible time to prevent yield loss.” The PhilRice also suggested drying of palay in flatbed dryers and on nylon nets or canvas for easier turnover when the rain comes. “The general rule is to harvest and thresh the crop within a short period of time and dry the seeds to a desired moisture content (usually 14 percent),” he added.

THE administration of President Benigno Aquino III is fast securing the public’s nod on its environmental conservation and protection initiatives nationwide. “These initiatives are restoring people’s faith in our capability to protect and enhance the environment and conserve our natural resources,” said Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) Sec. Ramon Paje. He noted such developments as government’s environmental initiatives continued gaining ground, resulting in advancements like increased forest cover and improved air quality. Those advancements also include sustained water clean-ups and cadastral mapping, more detailed geohazard maps and rise in population of key biodiversity species, he said. “The work we did resulted in significant improvement of government’s performance towards environmental protection and rehabilitation,” he said. Paje cited survey results which, he said reflected the public’s positive sentiment towards government’s environmental initiatives. “In Pulse Asia’s March 1-7, 2015 survey, 48 percent of respondents approved of the administration’s environmental performance, against 22 percent who disapproved, for a net approval rating of 26 percent,” he

said. Such approval rating is an improvement over the 45 percent government received in Pulse Asia’s November 2014 survey, he noted. He also said 2014 survey results from Social Weather Stations showed Filipinos “believe the Aquino administration is doing a good job of protecting the country’s environment.” “Government’s performance in protecting the environment got the highest rating among 17 specific issues rated by the public in its June 2014 survey,” he said. Reporting on the Philippine environment’s state, Paje said government’s reforestation efforts through the 2011-2016 National Greening Program (NGP) helped bring back forest cover in the country. “Our forest cover already increased from 6.8 million hectares to 7.8 million hectares after four years of intensive reforestation activities,” he said. NGP is government’s most ambitious reforestation bid so far, targeting to green some 1.5 million hectares of open, degraded and denuded land nationwide using around 1.5 billion seedlings of indigenous and exotic tree species. Paje acknowledged air quality remains a challenge, particularly in the country’s urban areas. He said government achieved significant air

quality improvement over the years, however. “A steady improvement in ambient air quality was realized with a 23 percent reduction in pollution level in terms of total suspended particulate (TSP) concentration in Metro Manila,” he said. Metro Manila’s TSP concentration was 166 micrograms per normal cubic meter (ug/Ncm) during the January-June 2010 period, he noted. Such pollutive TSP concentration eased to 128 ug/ Ncm in the January-March 2015 period, however, he said. DENR earlier launched its Adopt-an-Estero program to help address water pollution as well. “Through the program, 329 ‘esteros’ and rivers were adopted and 549 agreements were signed with various partners for the continuous clean-up of water bodies nationwide,” Paje said. The program enables the private sector to voluntarily clean up waterways these choose using own resources while DENR helps educate communities concerned about ills of indiscriminate garbage-dumping. On cadastral mapping, Paje said government already completed surveying 1,493 Philippine cities and municipalities which collectively comprise some 91 percent of the country’s total 1,634 cities and municipalities.

Pag-IBIG bags two awards for OFW savings and employee housing programs Pag-IBIG Fund recently bagged two awards from the Association of Development Financing Institutions in Asia and the Pacific (ADFIAP) for its savings campaign for overseas Filipino workermembers and housing projects for low-income earners and shipyard workers. ADFIAP is an international non-governmental organization that is in consultative status with the United Nation’s Economic and Social Council and a founding member and secretariat of the World Federation of Development Financial Institutions. Competitors came from 25 member-institutions from 17 countries. “Recognitions by respected third-party institutions like the ADFIAP affirm Pag-IBIG’s commitment to excellent performance and good governance. Both awards from ADFIAP prove the relevance of Pag-IBIG in our members’ lives, espe-

cially at a time when its credibility is being questioned,” said Atty. Darlene Marie B. Berberabe, PagIBIG Fund President and Chief Executive Officer. ADFIAP gave Pag-IBIG Fund two Awards of Merit at its 38th Annual Meetings held in Vietnam last May 13-15, 2015. Pag-IBIG Fund is the only member of ADFIAP among the key shelter agencies in the Philippines. ADFIAP recognized the Fund’s Dagdag Ipon Raffle Promo 2014 for fostering “a savings culture among its members as a means of preparing them for a better future for themselves and their families.” The campaign generated P963.965 million in OFW savings from 46,157 members who saved at least P600 per month. Meanwhile, Pag-IBIG’s Bistekville Housing Project and Needs Matching Program (Employee Village) were both recognized for allowing “employee-ben-

Blessed is the man who listens to me S pecial G ospel of the day (July22, 2015-Wednesday)Luke 19:45-48-And he went into the temple, and began to cast out them that sold therein, and them that bought; Saying unto them, It is written, My house is the house of prayer: but ye have made it a den of thieves. And he taught daily in the temple. But the chief priests and the scribes and the chief of the people sought to destroy him, and could not find what they might do: for all the people were very attentive to hear him: Take note, Jesus was a daily worshipper to God. According to Proverbs 8:34-”Blessed is the man who listens to me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at my doorposts. Therefore, come to God always for you to be happy. To come to God daily at his temple is looking backward to the followers of Jesus in the past.

7 more GSIS offices get Seal of Excellence Awardees now reach 21

Seven more offices of the Government Service Insurance System (GSIS) were awarded with the Citizen’s Satisfaction Center Seal of Excellence by the Civil Service Commission (CSC) for providing exemplary frontline service. This brings GSIS’s total number of Seal of Excellence awardees to 21. CSC officials headed by Commissioner Nieves Osorio awarded the seal of excellence to officials of GSIS headed by President and General Manager Robert Vergara in simple ceremonies held at the GSIS Head Office in Pasay City on July 20.

The awardees are the GSIS branch offices in Laguna, Tarlac, Bataan, Cauayan, Pasig, Batangas, and Palawan. They joined 14 other GSIS offices that received the Seal earlier, namely: Bacolod, Roxas, Aklan, Baguio, Bayombong, Borongan, Bulacan, Butuan, Dipolog, Laoag, Pasay, Surigao, Tagum, and Tuguegarao.

Values Education for Filipino Learners: A Necessity By Maribeth B. Mabalo, Teacher III Laguindingan National High School Laguindingan, Misamis Oriental

With the advent of modern technology, Filipino learners need to be properly guided and motivated through the inculcation of desirable and positive values that would lead them in the development of their whole being living in a just and humane society. In the school context, more important than lesson plans and any list of values are the teachers themselves who have the proper sense of values, awareness of their innerworth, and utmost respect for the person. Values education as a part of the school curriculum is the process by which values are formed in the learner under the guidance of the teacher and as he interacts with his environment. It has direct and immediate relevance to the personal life of the learner. Its process is not just cognitive but the

hearts as well. The parents as the primary educators of their children must continually serve as role-model in displaying proper discipline, truth, honesty and justice. In so doing, learners learn values the way their parents taught them. Hence, the parent’s and teacher’s personal values play an important role in values learning. A thing has valued when it is perceived as good and desirable. Not only material goods but also ideals and concepts are valuable. Values are the bases for judging what attitudes and behavior are correct and desirable. Discipline and concern for the poor are ineffective values unless they are internalized and translated into action. Therefore, there is really a necessity for values education to our learners that is meaningful and effective.

The GSIS had a dramatic turnaround in the survey, failing in 2012 but bouncing back in 2014 when it did not only get an Excellent overall score but even topped the ARTA-RCS among 1,000 government agencies. The pension fund obtained the highest percentage of offices that have been rated Excellent in the survey corresponding to 67% or 38 out of its 57 offices.

“Each Child Deserves Best”

By Jenemer B. Puyos T-III San Jose Elementary School Quezon I DISTRICT

Every child is God’s unique masterpiece. Each of them has its own ways to learn in perfect time. They differ in different aspects of their lives, the character traits that they have, the ways of living that they have, and their levels of learning. However, there’s one thing they have in common: they come to school in good faith to earn such incorruptible learning, and be equipped with knowledge to become a well-rounded individual in physical, social, mental and spiritual aspects. It is one of the duties

and responsibilities of a classroom teacher to cater pupil’s needs. They don’t deserve to be criticized in hostile way when they get a failing score, even if they could not be able to read simple words and unable to write their own names correctly. Teachers must bear in their mind what George Evans says “Every student learn just not on the same day, or the same way”. I believe that, the more the negative feedback the pupils receive, the less the chances of learning. Every pupils deser ve the best! The best teacher who can fill the pupil’s empty nest is the teacher’s hands who will guide his/her way to receive their dreams. Each child deserves best education!

be able to carry as much traffic to prevent congestion. Aside from traffic, the construction of the port might displace several settlers in its immediate environs, he said. “There’s no need to hurry up this project,” he added. But in a recent forum, DOTC Secretary Joseph Emilio Abaya said they are pushing through with the pre-bidding qualification set on July 29 in order to complete the bidding before the end of President Benigno Aquino III’s term next year. He said they will consider all the recommendations of the city government and other stakeholders on the proposed modernization plan while undertaking the bidding process. Councilor Leonardo Avila III said that it is within the jurisdiction of the Philippine Ports Authority (PPA) to develop and construct a port. The mandate of PPA is “to establish, develop, regulate, manage and operate a rationalized national port system in support of trade and national development.” Avila even questioned why DOTC has given peculiar attention to Sasa Port among all ports in the country. Mindanao Business Council (MBC) chair Vicente Lao earlier said the kind of port that DOTC wanted for Davao Region might not be the need of the local exporters and importers. The region already has two modern ports — Davao International Container Terminal (DICT) and Hijos Resources Corporation — servicing mostly banana exporters, but both claimed they can also cater to the shipment of the other goods. “It is not the policy of the government to compete with private sector,” Lao added. Others expressed concern the prices of basic goods would increase as the winning bidder will impose higher fees to recover the high cost of the project. Abaya countered a more efficient port will mean cheaper goods. He said modernizing Sasa Port will make for a more efficient operation. At the current state of the port, it takes two days to load and unload cargoes while it will only take four hours with the modernized port. The PPA previously set the bid cost at P4 billion but the consultants hired by International Finance Corp. (IFC) of the World Bank did a separate assessment and increased the cost to P17 billion. Abaya clarified the cost is just indicative, meaning it can still go lower depending on the proposal of the bidder. But former city councilor Peter T. Lavina said placing the project up for

bidding with an indicative cost would make it easier to funnel funds as campaign kitty. He told reporters yesterday that DOTC’s scheme is to award the project to the bidder who pays the government the highest concession fee wins regardless of how much it is willing to pay for the project. Abaya explained the bidder who can present the most cost-efficient and the highest concession fee will get the project. Jacobo Mantecon, Hijo Resources Corporation vice president for industrial port services, told reporters that the project may not be overpriced, but the specifications set by DOTC would compel the bidder to pay that much even if the agency insisted that the cost is just indicative. “We cannot buy a Mercedez Benz for a budget of Toyota,” he said. Based on the bid document, Mantecon added there is a subsidy from the government. “I am not aware what a concession fee is but what we are aware of, there is a subsidy in this project. It’s called the visibility gap. If you look at the document, there’s a visibility gap which defines the short between the bidder and the actual cost because at the end of the day, they are right, the bidder will only bid to what he thinks the project will be viable,” he said. The project has six bidders. (Antonio L. Colina IV/MindaNews)

Aerial spraying is a generally accepted agricultural practice by the World Trade Organization (WTO) and the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations under certain limitations which the banana industry is strictly adopting otherwise its importers might stop buying from them. A multi-sectoral monitoring team that focused on banana plantations oversees the compliance of these regulations. The Philippines is the world’s second largest exporter of fresh bananas. The top major export destinations for fresh Cavendish bananas are Japan, China, Korea, the Middle East and New Zealand with stringent policies on food production. PBGEA Executive Director Stephen Antig said: “The allegations against aerial spraying are recycled and have been answered a long time ago. We invite the proponents to visit Davao and see for yourselves how we do things. If need be, you can talk to the people in Camocaan or talk to your colleagues, the former members of the

Committee on Ecology, some of whom are still in Congress while others are still in the same committee. We are hopeful that the criticalmindedness and scientific objectivity of our government policy makers will prevail.” The issue of aerial spraying has been extensively discussed during a Congressional hearing held in Davao City in November, 2009. The public hearing was presided by House Committee on Ecology chair Belma Cabilao with the participation of other congressmen, including then House Speaker Prospero Nograles, Reps. Rufus Rodriguez, Luzviminda Ilagan, and Rafael Mariano. During the hearing, the anti-aerial NGOs were exposed lying, inventing ill effects of aerial spraying to villagers living near the plantation areas. “The very survival of the industry rests on the health and well-being of our growers, the workers, their families and the communities around our farmlands, which must be protected from all forms of environmental degradation and never did we sacrifice people’s health and integrity of the environment for our rich harvests,” Antig said. The banana growers’ track record for the past 45 years proved that low-dose fungicide poses no risk to people’s health and the environment. It is milder than table salt, coffee, nizoral shampoo or of the obnoxious and deleterious carbon monoxide which people from all walks of life are exposed daily or of the acetaldehydes, chloromethanes, dioxane, phosphates and alkylbenzene sulfonic acid in laundry soaps and detergents used daily by millions of households in the country. A fact-finding investigation conducted by Davao City officials in 2009 concluded that that there was no scientific evidence to support the ban against aerial spraying in banana plantations in Davao City. A Summary Report on the Assessment and FactFinding Activities on the Issue of Aerial Spraying in Banana Plantations (The Jacinto Report) submitted to Mayor Rodrigo Duterte, said: “Aerial spraying is considered to be the most effective and cost-efficient method of fungicide application. It was first introduced in the banana industry in Latin America in 1958.” “A review of the medical records in a tertiary hospital found no cases of untoward manifestations due to exposure to aerial spraying. Most of the cases of poisoning were orally taken,” the report said. Apart from the conclusion of Davao City’s own factfinding team, various national government agencies with expert personnel conducted studies and investigations on aerial spraying. Their reports indicated that there is no scientific evidence to support a wholesale ban on aerial spraying. The Department of Agriculture (DA) said that the claim that aerial spraying is

hazardous to animals and human beings remains an allegation and assumption unless otherwise scientifically proven by concerned authorities and agencies. This issue can be addressed by following Good Agricultural Practices (GAP), which the DA is promoting among fruit and vegetable growers and plantations. “Any method of agri-chemical application, whether aerial or non aerial if not properly done in accordance with established procedures and code of good agricultural practices and if the chemical applicators and handlers lack of necessary competency, certainly it could be hazardous.” The Department of Trade and Industry, in a position paper advised that: “Aerial spraying is an internationally accepted Good Agricultural Practice and is being used all over Davao Region as an efficient and effective method of fungicide application to control the Sigatoka disease.” “The testimonies of our health care community, as well as the testimonies of the best scientific minds in the Philippines and in the world have proven beyond doubt that the declaration of the anti-spray campaign are hearsay, half-truths and lies,” added Antig.

allowed five (5) years following effectivity of this Act. The continued operation of the dumpsite has tremendous impact on public health. According to the CSWMB, infectious diseases and respiratory illnesses are very high in the area surround the dumpsite. “The continued operation of the dumpsite is detrimental to the environment due to the active production of methane gas as evidenced by continuous burning and smoke generation,” the Board said. “Studies show that there is surface and ground water contamination due to uncontrolled leachate of the waste in the present dumpsite,” the Board added. But the opposition-dominated City Council continues to play blind, deaf, and mute to the city’s garbage problem. (Bong D. Fabe)

“Completion of the country’s century-old cadastral survey program became possible with substantial funding the Aquino administration provided to complete the nationwide cadastral survey by 2015 and determine internal revenue allotment for every LGU,” he said. Paje further said DENR already completed geohazard maps for cities and municipalities in the country. He said the maps are drawn to the larger scale 1:10,000 meters and provide information LGUs can use in responding to calamities and in preparing respective disaster risk reduction management plans. Government likewise advanced on conserving and protecting species nationwide, Paje continued. “Such efforts resulted in increased population of key species such as the Philippine Eagle which was a mere 29 heads in 2010 but has now gone up to 52 heads,” he said. Population of the endangered and endemic tamaraw also increased from 274 heads in 2011 to 382 heads in 2014, he noted. “Continuous monitoring of marine turtles resulted to an increase in nesting sites, he also said. Paje reiterated his appeal to the public to help care for the environment. He said public participation in such endeavor was essential since government could not solely do the work. People can help care for the environment, even through simple ways like conserving water in their houses and avoiding wasteburning and indiscriminate garbage dumping, he noted. “Let’s keep in mind that we all have the right and the responsibility to do the best we can for our environment,” he added.

formation on the climate change issues, the bishops committed themselves to organize symposia and conferences that will be taken up in Paris. Replace consumption with sacrifice Villegas added that meaningful participation and debate are premised on sound information and adequate knowledge. “But a more direct and immediate action can and should also be taken,” he said. Meanwhile, Caritas Internationalis president and Manila Archbishop Luis Antonio Cardinal Tagle has earlier called on the faithful to undertake a mission to save the planet. In a letter to Caritas confederation on Laudato Si, he said the Pope “reminds us to replace consumption with a sense of sacrifice, greed with generosity and wastefulness with a spirit of sharing.” “We must ‘give, and not simply give up’. We are called to free ourselves from all that is heavy and negative and wasteful and to enter into dialogue with our global family,” he said.

opportunities and how much of the Government VAT was lost? The United Nations Economic and Social Council have just conducted a high level forum in New York last June 26 until July 8. The main agenda was Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s) to replace the Millennium Development Goals (MDG’s) which will expire this year. One of the agenda calendared was SDG 14, to quote “Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development”. The UN has spelled it’s foresight in the next 15 years for the world’s ecological support system for sustainability of fish and other marine life for the benefit and requirement of mankind. In the light of this development, can the national government with billions of discretionary, Disbursement Acceleration Program allocate funding for the rehabilitation of our Mangrove forest?
