PHL raising energy efficiency, use of renewable energy

C

By Leslie D. Venzon

EBU CITY -- The Philippines will begin implementing next year a fiveyear action plan for energy efficiency and is increasing the use of renewable energy in a bid to address issues related to climate change.

Energy Undersecretary Donato D. Marcos bared these Philippine initiatives during the opening of the 46th Asia Pacific Economic

Cooperation Energy Efficiency and Conservation (APEC EGEEC) Meeting held here Monday. “I trust that APEC will

tackle interventions to mitigate the effects of climate change through energy efficiency and push for an environment friendly and developed economy,” he said. For its part, Marcos said the Philippines has come up with an Energy Efficiency Roadmap and its corresponding action plan that it will undertake from 2016-2020. “This Roadmap is envi-

sioned to be the master plan of the Philippines Department of Energy in achieving energy efficiency and conservation programs and activities to higher levels and define the role of the government in coming up with a range of measures aimed at improving energy efficiency, driven by legislative orders and decrees targeting energy saving programs,” he noted. Marcos said the ac-

tion plan has targeted five energy-intensive sectors, namely: transport, industry, commercial and residential buildings and the crosssectoral. Moreover, the energy official said the Philippines is aggressive in the promotion and installation of renewable energy, as it recognizes the importance of addressing energy issues relevant to economic growth and development. “As a matter of record, we rank second as the largest geothermal producer in the world with 1,868 MW (megawatts) installed capacity as of 2013 or equivalent to 10.78 percent of the total installed capacity of the country,” he stressed.

For its energy efficiency programs, Marcos said the country has generated energy savings of 1.6 million tons of oil equivalent for the same year. “The Philippines reaffirms its commitment to the APEC’s unified goal of building strong partnerships towards economic development as we are optimistic that with APEC support, our vision of harmonization and connectivity will come to excellent productive realization,” he further said. The 46th APEC EGEEC Meeting will discuss various priority areas, including energy efficiency policies and programs, and energy intensity and renewable energy goals. (PNA)

CEBU CITY -- The Philippines, which plays host to the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit this year, sees its trade with 20 other APEC member economies increasing by over 6.8 percent annually, to about $109.62 billion in 2015. Ambassador Ma. Angelina Sta. Catalina said the country’s hosting of APEC widens opportunities for increased regional trade in goods and services, spe-

cifically intra-APEC trade, including global trade. Sta. Catalina cited a trend indicating Philippine trade growing by about 6.8 percent every year since its APEC membership in 1989. “So if there has been an improvement in our trade figures as a consequence of APEC, then we are looking forward to more increased trade because of the kind of initiatives that we are undertaking in the various discussions,” she said in a press briefing. The ambassador said the Philippines’ total external trade with APEC members reached $96.104 billion, or 80.7 percent of the country’s entire trade, in 2013. Philippine exports amounted to $47.63 billion, or 84 percent of the country’s total exports to the world; while imports reached $48.47 billion or 77.7 percent of the total imports. “We do have a balance

MUMMA: ‘Up and back on fighting stance’ Bukidnon • Camiguin • Lanao del Norte • Lanao del Sur • Misamis Occidental • Misamis Oriental

CAGAYAN de Oro City -- “I motivate my fighters all through these years and I know they (Mindanao Ultimate Mixed Martial Arts or MUMMA fighters) will stand up proud that they had tried their best during their respective bouts at the ‘Proving Ground 5: Cage Supremacy’ and will take any given moment to try their fighting stances again.” This was the assurance may consider it the biggest given by Roselyn Hung, match of his or her life and promoter of the “Proving was hurt by a lost opportuGrounds 5 Retribution: Cage nity to win.

But, Rabin Catalan, who is also from the Takedown Fight Academy stable, successfully pinned down Davao City pride Ruben Lanaza in the flyweight category during the second round of the three-round fight. In the bantamweight, debutante Jay Malubay smeared his MMA entry and was forced to tap out at 1:03 in the first round after experiencing a rear neck choke from opponent Arnel Ylanan of Cebu. Another Davao eño, Lanz Tenorio, succumbed to Manila’s Erdie Bautista in the second strawweight bout of the evening, at the Limketkai Atrium, sounding the tap at 2:06 in the first round of the bout.

The only female bout came in on the sixth bout of the TPG 5. Arnis college varsity graduate Queeney Saenz fought a tough and fierce fight against Ultra Tan. The referee stopped the fight at 1:50 in the second round after Saenz failed to response with defensive move against Tan who was then in the advantage position via grappling lock.

Quorum problem delaying BBL proceedings, says solon By Carolyn O. Arguillas of MindaNews

DAVAO City--There are only eight session days left from Monday, August 31 until September 15, the target date for the passage of the Bangsamoro Basic Law (BBL) at the House of Representatives but quorum problems continue to delay the proceedings. Cagayan de Oro Rep. Rufus Rodriguez, chair of the House of Representatives’ Ad Hoc Committee on the Bangsamoro Basic Law, and principal sponsor of HB 5811, the substitute bill to the GPH-MILF’s draft BBL, was confident

on Sunday, August 23, that there would be a quorum and they would be able to pass the law by September 15. The previous Sunday, he told radio station DZBB in Manila that HB 5811 should be passed before September 28 because by then the 2016 budget will go to the plenary for debates. On August 23, however, he told MindaNews: “There will be quorum tomorrow (Monday) up to Wednesday. We will have interpellations. We still have time to finish the bill by September 15.” Even Presidential Adviser on the Peace Process

Teresita Quintos-Deles was confident that the quorum requirement would be met and that she expected legislative action to move rapidly in the next few weeks.” But during the session days on August 24 to 26, only Muntinlupa Rep. Rodolfo Biazon managed to interpellate for a few minutes, as the question of quorum was again raised. The House of Representatives has 291 members. The quorum required is 146. MindaNews asked Rodriguez and Deles on Saturday afternoon (August 29) if they were still optimistic See problem, page A11

that nobody is akin to being the running mate of Roxas. Where, before getting a presidential running mate for an administration candidate could cause a migraine due to many interested contenders, the case of Roxas is different. Bad omen. Roxas should have taken the advice of many a political observers to dissociate from Aquino just after the Mamapasano carnage in Maguindanao took place.

It seems paradoxical: The term debt relief is a taboo in Latin America, Asia and Africa but that is exactly what Greece asked the IMF for. On August 14, the head of the IMF, Christine Lagarde, made the organization’s position clear by saying, “It is crucial for Greece’s debt sustainability that its European partners commit themselves to significant debt relief, which goes far beyond the measures taken so far.” The IMF’s concerns about the sustainability of Greek debt, however, actually reflect self-interest. “We know that from the Latin American debt crisis in the 1980s,” recalls the economist Langhammer. “Then they argued that a haircut would increase the chances serving the interest payable on the remaining debt.” Does the fund simply defend the interests of its members by investing their money well? “The IMF is

The Omen The political climate at the national and local levels are getting hotter each day. One thing I hate so much is the filing up of “praise releases” of senatorial candidates in my emails. I did not know this from Adam and yet they have the gall to send emails. Of course, we need stories – the newspapers are always in need of substantive, objective, and entertaining stories. However, the stories of these candidates are meant to “deodorize” their political images in the guise of news. Ridiculous. Anyway, we have written a lot of the possibilities in the local political arena, particularly in Cagayan De Oro City. Now, let us try to telescope the province. Nevertheless, before going to Misamis Oriental, let us have a brief glance of the national political atmosphere. It appears that Presidential candidate Mar Roxas of the Liberal Party (LP) is having a hard time getting a worthy running mate. To think that Roxas is the anointed Presidential candidate of the incumbent Pres. Benigno S. Aquino, III, everyone is surprised

that mocked the capability of the country’s law enforcers. Aquino also keeps the operations under the noses of Roxas, the Secretary of the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG). Roxas, being the DILG Secretary, deserved to know the details of the operations prior to its implementation. However, he has a President who worked closely with a suspended, but favored Police Director General instead of him (Roxas). Anyway, with the failure and the infamous debacle of the Mamapasano encounter. Roxas escaped the rage of his countrymen. It was a blessing in disguise, so to speak. Perhaps, it was also the right time for Roxas to walk away from Aquino and follow a separate road. In defiance to the popular demand and the stern warning that he would become a casualty of Aquino’s sinking vessel, Roxas opted to stay. Well, if only to become the anointed one, Roxas has to stick it out. In return, Roxas would be willing to face the consequences of the See diaz, page A11

shouting as loud as it can so that no one gets the idea that it could possibly take part in a haircut,” says Jürgen Kaiser, the coordinator of Jubilee Germany, a German NGO that promotes fair and transparent bankruptcy rules. A very big problem: Christine Lagarde lacks explanations. The IMF had problems explaining what happened in 2002 as well. At that time, more and more emerging and developing nations distanced themselves from the organization. Sustained growth rates allowed them to form foreign exchange reserves and enabled them to pay off their debts. The IMF See doring, page A11

The Magic is in the Mix Think A Minute

Jhan Tiafau Hurst

Think a minute… A little boy named Mike was watching his mother bake a cake. She put all the ingredients on the table: flour, butter, sugar, baking powder, eggs, and vanilla. Then when his mother wasn’t looking, little Mike sneaked a taste of each ingredient. But they all tasted bad just by themselves! Then he watched his mother mix all the ingredients together, pour them into a pan and then into the oven to bake. That night after Mike had enjoyed 2 big pieces of the cake, he said: “Wow! How can mixing all those BAD tasting things make such a GOOD cake?” His mother smiled and answered: “Son, the magic is in the mix!” You see, sometimes bad things happen to us; and that thing by itself can be terrible and painful. We might get discouraged and lose hope because we think it’s hurt or ruined our plans for a good life. Maybe you didn’t get that job you really wanted; or your daughter dropped out of school because she became pregnant. It could be that someone in your family suddenly became very sick. Naturally when bad things like this happen to us, it’s very hard for us to imagine that anything good can possibly come out of it. We might continue to blame ourselves or others for causing these bad things to happen. For example, we might keep making our pregnant daughter feel that she’s a failure and loser because that mistake she made has now ruined her life. But friend, if a person is a failure just because they failed, then we’re all failures! We’ve all failed at one time or another. That’s exactly why Jesus Christ came: to forgive and free us from all our past failures and wrongs so we can have a fresh start. See hurst, page A11

personnel in delivering the deserved social protection programs and services to us as scholars and to all its target clienteles,” he added.

DAVAO City -- On instructions from their national leadership, members of the Iglesia ni Cristo (INC) ended at around 10:00 a.m. on Monday their protest action in Davao City in support to thousands of fellow members who had been staging rallies at the Department of Justice in Manila and EDSA since Thursday last week.

Ladera said in Tagalog that government had decided in favor of INC’s demand. “Ipinasya ng tagapamahalang pangkalahatan na kami po ay lumisan ng mapayapa sa dakong ito at maging sa Maynila sapagkat ibinagay na po ang tamang pasya sa amin pong hinihiling sa goberyno.” He said INC secured a permit from the city mayor to hold a rally for three days. INC rallies in the capital irked motorists and commuters for causing traffic jams. “Walang ganitong peaceful rally na hindi tayo umani ng iba’t ibang kumento at reaksyon. Ang sa amin lang maraming salamat po,” (There had been no peaceful rallies that we didn’t draw

comments and reactions. On our part, we just like to say thank you,” Ladera said. He added it is the right of every Filipino to air out his grievances and exercise his right. INC members, some of whom arrived in the city as early as 6 p.m. on Sunday, had started returning home on-board trucks, vans, and jeepneys at around 10 a.m. Monday.

Araneta Group Streamlines Franchise Operations with SAP Business All-in-One Taguig, Philippines, August 29, 2015 –SAP AE (NYSE: SAP) has announced that Araneta Group, a pioneer in entertainment and leisure development in the Philippines, has implemented SAP Business All-in-One to streamline operations, logistics, and financial systems of its food group Philippine Pizza Inc. This implementation was spearheaded by Fujitsu Philippines, SAP’s channel partner and Questronix, an SAP reseller. According to Kenneth Mondero, SAP project leader and SVP for Finance at the Araneta Group, Philippine Pizza Inc. had individual legacy systems for each of its food franchises namely, Pizza Hut, Taco Bell and Dairy Queen. “SAP Business All-inOne gives us the upper hand now. We are able to access reports and time-sensitive information across finance, logistics, and operations departments. There is definitely a quicker turnaround in decision-making.” Mondero also noted that this implementation enabled

larger savings. “SAP Business All-in-One has allowed us to take a consolidated view of our expenses and optimize decision-making. Higher accuracy is another important advantage of this implementation.” Today, SAP Business All-in-One is an important part of the Group’s technology investments across its various businesses. This includes the Philippine Pizza, Inc., to leisure innovator Araneta Center Inc. that houses Gateway Mall, Farmers Plaza and Ali Mall, as well as Uniprom Inc. which handles Smart Araneta Coliseum, Ticketnet, Gateway, and Ali Mall Cineplex. Araneta’s relationship with SAP has grown in strength due to the direct and indirect benefits the Group has realized over the last few months. Speaking on the implementation, SAP Philippines Managing Director Ryan Poggi said, “As one of the most important and diversified Philippine conglomerates, the Araneta Group needed a simplified solu-

tion for accurate reporting, reduced financial inconsistencies, and better delivery efficiencies. We are glad to have delivered this yet again, this time for Philippine Pizza Inc. Our relationship with the Araneta Group is a significant example of our efforts in delivering strategic advantage through a strong combination of customer vision, subject matter expertise, and superior technology.” Mondero concluded, “Before SAP Business Allin-One, we had different legacy systems for each of our businesses. Every day, our accounting teams extracted and encoded data for their respective businesses. The work was tedious and hard to manage. With SAP Business All-in-One, we now make strategic business decisions faster. With SAP streamlining processes across business functions and companies, we can now focus our time and efforts on creating winning food and leisure experiences for our customers across the Philippines.”

DENR, LBP sign pacts on environmental collaboration THE Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) on Friday entered into two agreements with the Land Bank of the Philippines (LBP) to reinforce their collaboration on environmental protection and job creation within the environment sector. Environment Secretary Ramon J.P. Paje and LBP president and CEO Gilda Pico signed the partnership agreements on the implementation of the bank’s Adopt-A-Watershed Program (AAWP) and ‘GawadPatnubay’ Scholarship

Program (GPSP) at the bank’s head office in Manila. “ The two programs highlight the LBP’s commitment to strike a balance between promoting countryside development and incorporating environmental management practices in its operations and services,” Paje said. Now on its third phase, the AAWP involves the rehabilitation of 60 hectares of denuded and degraded forestlands. The LBP and DENR have been partners for the program since the first phase in 2006. Pico, for her part, said the DENR-LBP agreements take their partnership “a

‘Spoiled’ noodles down 128

KORONADAL City-- At least 120 persons were rushed to the hospital in South Cotabato after eating what local officials suspected as “spoiled” noodles (“pancit”) during a village celebration on Sunday. The victims were all residents of a remote village of Lake Sebu in South Cotabato and belonged to a religious sect known as “Salvation Army.” Lake Sebu Mayor Antonio Fungan the victims were residents of Barangay Takunel who celebrated the foundation anniversary the religious group and almost simultaneously complained of severe abdominal pain. “Many victims claimed they experienced loose bowel movement and vomiting,” Fungan told DXOM-AM RadyoBida in Koronadal City. “We suspect a spoiled pancit (noodles) prepared for the celebration,” Fungan said, adding that the noodles were prepared as early as 1 a.m. Sunday and were served at noon. The noodles were placed separately on small cellophane and distributed as viand during lunch. Fungan said he learned from event organizers the “bihon” were prepared by village teenagers, all members of “Salvation Army.” “It may not be properly cooked or the food was spoiled when placed in cellophane and exposed to the heat of the sun,” he said in Filipino. “Relief assistance and medicine, including distilled water have been provided to the victims,” the mayor said. Some victims were already discharged from the hospital, but remained weak. The town health office has gathered samples of the spoiled noodles for laboratory test in the provincial health office.

step further as we expand what we have started in 2006,” noting that the partnership supports LBP’s agenda to tap the power of volunteerism as a key element in promoting rural development anchored in sustainable development principles. “As firm advocates of environmental protection, we at LANDBANK welcome this opportunity to contribute not only in the preservation and protection of our watersheds, but also in the promotion of environmental protection through volunteerism,” Pico stressed. The undertaking will involve LBP’s workforce

nationwide and the different people’s organizations involved in LANDBANK’s various poverty alleviation projects, according to her. Under their renewed p ar t ne rsh ip, L BP w i l l shell out PhP1.8 million to cover the cost of planting and maintenance of the planted seedlings, including monitoring activities and capability building of implementing partners. The DENR, on the other hand, will provide technical support in terms of site and species selection, designation of focal persons and formulation of rehabilitation plans with concerned people’s organizations. Some 14 hectares of

degraded forestlands were rehabilitated during the first phase of the project and 40 hectares during the second phase. Meanwhile, Pico also expressed her gratitude to the DENR as the newest partner of LBP’s ‘GawadPatnubay’ Scholarship Program, citing the important role the DENR plays in helping the bank address rural poverty by producing graduates in agriculturerelated courses. Under the GPSP agreement, the DENR has opened its facilities and manpower at any DENR offices nationwide for the conduct of job readiness and skills training or internship of

LBP’s scholars. GPSP involves a 10week internship program dubbed ‘Education-toEmployment’ or E2E for its graduates to help them develop their career goals and learn the needed skills in the real world. The first batch of GSPS interns consists of 10 graduates of agriculture, agriculture chemistry and agriculture business courses. Seven of them graduated with honors either magna cum laude or cum laude. “The DENR, too, shares the LBP’s vision of providing a solid base of education for the next generation of agri-scientists and farmers,” Paje said.

God wants you to become more fruitful Special Gospel of the day (September1, 2015-Tuesday)Mark 10:1-12- And the Pharisees came to him, and asked him, Is it lawful for a man to put away [his] wife? Tempting him. And he answered and said unto them, what did Moses command you? And they said, Moses suffered to write a bill of divorcement, and to put [her] away:

In another stunning fight, Cuban Emilio Urrutia pinned down homegrown fighter Carlo Mabilen of MUMMA, locking him in a Kimura and forcing him to yield the fight. In the eighth fight, American Will Chope overpowered Arsen Escayo and slammed him to the ground in a rear neck choke, surprising expectators. Escayo tapped out of the lightweight bout, bloodied above the eyes and nose. The next fight was also filled with crowd roars as another Cagayanon, Renato Jabiniao II, stepped into the cage. Both he and his opponent, Drex Zamboanga of Manila, showed good fighting stances. Jabiniao kneeled down though before Zamboanga, following the throwing of red towel from Jabiniao’s corner at 4:37 in the third round of the fight. The main bout of the evening was rather crisp and short. MUMMA’s Rex de Lara executed a series of Muay Thai and grappling moves against American Luke Adams in the featherweight division, but ultimately bowed out to a rear neck choke against Adams of the Juggernaut Fight Club of Singapore. Hung s aid t he Prov ing Grounds 5 Retribution: Cage Supremacy had achieved its purpose in bringing MMA to Mindanao and to MUMMA’s hometown Caayan de Oro, as a mainstream sports event. She looks forward to having another opportunity for a sequel. Meanwhile, Sudaria said that he is hoping that BusinessWeek Mindanao and Mindanao Daily News will also be co-presenting an MMA event in China this September 12 featuring Will Chope versus Katzushi Sugiyama in the main event, among others.

about Rodriguez’ target date but both have not sent their replies. Only 30% Biazon told MIndaNews in a telephone interview on August 29 that he has finished only about 30% of the issues he wants Rodriguez to answer. “I am not going to allow any vice chair of the committee (to answer me). I will require Rufus to answer,” he said. Zamboanga City Rep. Celso Lobregat, whose interpellation was suspended on June 10 when Congress adjourned sine die, told MindaNews last month that he was still halfway in his interpellation but would give chance for the other representatives to interpellate first. Biazon narrated that as he was interpellating on the decommissioning, Zamboanga del Sur Rep. Aurora Cerilles stood up to say “ako taga Mindanao and what Rep. Biazon is saying, everybody must listen.” He said it was important for the issues he raised to be heard. But there was no quorum, he said, so session was suspended. When the period of interpellation was suspended on June 10, only eight of 38 representatives who had signed up to interpellate had finished. Lobregat did not complete his interpellation

This is the mentality of some Pharisees that divorce was acceptable to their times and you know what, this is the mentality of many people especially in foreign countries that “divorce is a law already.”Remember, “Matrimony” is one of the 7 sacraments. This means that “marriage life is a very sacred commitment” of both husband because of the adjournment sine die. The period of interpellation was supposed to have resumed on August 4 but since then, only two representatives had finished interepellation, with Biazon still unfinished. Rodriguez two weeks ago told MindaNews only 16 representatives, including Lobregat and Biazon were still going to interpellate as the others had backed out. BBl not passed Biazon said he is “still on the decommissioning issue” and estimates there are still “about 20” who have yet to interpellate. Given these realities, he said, “I do not see it will be passed within September or October.” Congress goes on recess from October 10 to November 2. “if the law is not passed by October, people will be filing candidacies under the ARMM (Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao) law” or RA 9054. The filing of certificates of candidacy for those who are running for posts in the May 9, 2016 elections, is on October 12 to 16. “I do not see the law (BBL) will be passed and because of this, the consequence is mag-e-election ang ARMM unless we provide in the law what will be done as a consequence of the law being late.” Mary Ann Arnado of the Mindanao Pelples Caucus wants to know “why (Zamboanga City Rep. Celso) Lobregat and (Buhay partylist Rep. Lito) Atienza who are rabid anti-BBL can sustain their attendance while so-called proBBL, pro-peace legislators are on default due to chronic absences?” Senate At the Senate, the period of interpellation on the substitute bill, SB 2894, started on August 24. Thus far, only two senators – Pia Cayetano and Sonny Angara — have finished, according to Honey Rose Mercado of the office of Senator Ferdinand Marcos, chair of the Committee on Local Government. Seventeen senators signed the Committee Report on the substitute bill. Those who signed and signified intention to “interpellate/amend” are Senators Aquilino Pimentel Jr., Antonio Trillanes, Grace Poe and Angara. Senators Nancy Binay, Cayetano, Loren Legarda, and Joseph Victor Ejercito, signed “with reservations, will amend and interpellate,” Senators Teofisto Guingona, Ralph Recto and Paolo Benigno Aquino IV noted they “will amend.” Senator Gregorio Honasan signed “with reservations,” Senator Cynthia Villar said “I agreed to allow this bill to go to Plenary” but added “this is not a yes to the BBL.” Senator Vicente Sotto III signed “with reservations and amendments! agreeing to the Title! BAR Law” while Senator Alan Peter Cayetano signed and said “I vote No. Yes to strengthening the Autonomous Region that will result in a Just, inclusive, lasting Peace. To BBL in present form, No! This version has addressed many [majority of objected provisions/issues. But many more have to be addressed/ amended”). Senator Manuel Lapid signed with no notation.

and wife. In fact, Jesus proved it in our gospel for today. And Jesus answered and said unto them, for the “hardness of your heart” he wrote you this precept. But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female. For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and leave to his wife; and they twain shall be one flesh: so then they

are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder. Take note, civil marriage is not a divine union but only a human union. You need to receive the sacrament of matrimony for you to be united with God. Driving a vehicle without a license is illegal. This is my point; living together but no divine union is not pleas-

a Bangsamoro that will be “less than the ARMM” that it seeks to replace. Bayan Muna Rep. Carlos Isagani Zarate told MindaNews “there is a need now for the MILF (Moro Islamic Liberation Front) to re-assess its position vis-a-vis pushing for the passage of a law that — as recent developments in the House and the Senate show– will not be compliant with the FAB (Framework Agreement on the Bangsamoro) and the CAB (Comprehensive Agreement on the Bangsamoro).” “As we have warned before, the too many promises and commitments by Aquino administration just so the Front will sign an agreement, will not be honored, it will be taken back eventually through technicalities, legal gobbledygook and even sabotage, like what happened in Mamasapano.” “It is now very clear: Capitulation and surrender are the core of the Aquino peace policy, thus, the Front and the Bangsamoro people should now start looking at a postAquino strategy to push the agenda of genuine self-determination,” Zarate said. MILF chair Al Haj Murad Ebrahim had earlier told MindaNews that they are still looking forward to the commitment of President Aquino to push for the passage of a BBL that adheres to the peace agreements signed with the government (GPH) but if it is not passed within the Aquino administration, they will “continue to demand of the next administration to implement the FAB and the CAB.” “We have to protect the peace agreement…. if all efforts will not succeed in passing it within the President’s term, then we will continue to demand of the next government to implement FAB and CAB because the final peace agreement is not subject to renegotiation,” said the 67-year old Murad, who has been chair of the MILF since founding chair Salamat Hashim passed away in July 2003.(Carolyn O.

nasilaIndaykasiayawtalaganila (Just a little bit more, I will talk to Inday – former mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio because they do not like it),” Duterte said. When asked to elaborate, Duterte said he is still thinking about it. Unlike before, Duterte hinted to considering running for the presidency seeing the thousands of people supporting him. The Run Duterte Run Caravan was 13-day journey aimed at convincing the mayor to run for president. The caravan of vehicles was estimated at 3,261 coming from Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao. There was no declaration to run for president but Duterte promised he would talk to his family. Among those in the rally were left-leaning organizations, governors, mayors, the Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF) and community leaders. Also present were former Army chief HermogenesEsperon, former Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Roberto Lastimoso. He emphasized that he does want to be president under the same system of government otherwise he is bound to fail. While saying this, Duterte still shared his wishes if he would become president. Duterte said he would put Mindanao in the priority list; corruption; illegal drugs; and, family planning. (PNA)

According to Duterte, Sison sent the message to him upon learning he was on his way to rally organized by his supporters. While Duterte had been turning down calls to run for president, on Friday night, the mayor gave his supporters a glimmer of hope for a possible presidential bid in May 2016. Overwhelmed by more or less 10,000 supporters gathered at the San Pedro Square for the Run Duterte Run caravan which started in the Manila passing through Luzon provinces, Visayas and down to Mindanao, Duterte however did not declare he will run for president. He said he still needs to seek the approval of his family. “Kontinalang, Kausapinkomu-

warrant of one of the village houses there, the military reported Saturday. Capt. Norman Tagros, the spokesperson of the army’s 8th Infantry Battalion based here, said that the raiding troops seized firearms and various war paraphernalia after the military encountered an armed resistance when the raiding team tried to serve the warrant three days ago Wednesday lastweek. Seized were one M-16 rifle, six Improvised Explosive Devices (IED), 60 pieces blasting caps, 900 meters of danger explosive, detonating cord, eight pieces IED molders, one-half kilo sulfur powder, one lower receiver of cal. 45 pistols, subversive documents and an NPA rebel flag. He said that some of the IEDs that were recovered were found buried along the trails within the periphery of the barangay, posing great danger to the residents of the community. Tagros said that the military is now conducting a probe to determine whether the NPA rebels have been using the area as a site of the illegal explosive factory. According to Tagros, the residents in the area formally filed a complaint with the local court after executing an affidavit about alleged NPA abuses, recruitment and illegal possession of firearms and IEDs perpetrated by some local barangay folks who were influenced by the communist rebels. He said that some militant groups who introduced themselves as members of a human rights group from Arakan, North Cotabato held a protest in a bid to stop the law enforcers from serving the search warrants in the village. However, the local residents drove the protesters away and guided the military to a successful raid that led to the discovery of the war factory in the village, Tagros said.

In addition, the irreversible trend of the defeat of the Aquino administration is now creeping toward the local political ground.

But this time we will have His strength and character living in us. So why not make today the first day of your new life? Sincerely ask Jesus to forgive you for your past wrongs, and to take full charge so He can start changing your life. Then with His power and help you can start living His way every day. Jesus will even take all the bad things from your past and start mixing them together so that in the end they can actually benefit you. Then instead of being guilty and ruined by those things anymore, you’ll thank God for forgiving you and using those lessons to change you into a much better, happier person. Just Think a Minute …

Other members refused to give comment citing order from the church leadership. “Dili na me mo-comment kay storya sa higher office (We don’t want to comment anymore because the higher office told us not to),” said a woman member. Police estimated the INC members that filled the entire stretch of Candelaria St. at 100,000. They came from 22 districts from all over Mindanao. Senior Inspector Milgrace Driz told MindaNews the city police secured the area with 200 personnel and 100 additional forces from the Regional Public Safety Battalion. The police forces assigned in Marilog, Toril, Calinan, and Bunawan districts were also dispatched to ensure the safety of the protesters. In a video post (https:// goo.gl/yqbcuL) on August 30, INC general evangelist Bro. Bienvenido C. Santiago said they and the government have indeed arrived to an agreement. Santiago said both sides have explained their positions leading to a peaceful end to the protests that started on Thursday. In a separate statement published on August 31, presidential spokesperson Edwin Lacierda said dialogue resolved the disagreement between the two parties. “We were resolved not to inflame passions, which could have given an opening to those with selfish agendas to further exacerbate conflict. Diplomacy therefore was an important tool in avoiding unintended consequences,” he said. He added the government appreciated the INC leadership for telling its members to end the protests in key areas of the country. “We are thankful that no serious injuries came about these past few days, and that the public can now prepare to go to work and to school tomorrow, as the long weekend draws to a close,” he said. The protest actions came shortly after expelled INC minister Isaias Samson Jr. filed before the DOJ an illegal detention case against INC leaders. (Antonio L.
