Shifting crops THE Department of Agriculture (DA) urged farmers to shift to other c ro p s fo r th e “ El Niño” season to reduce water consumption. Engr. Henry Cacayan, officer-in-charge (OIC) for the DA’s Water Resources and Management Division, said at a press conference at the “Kapihan sa Media ng Bayan” Friday that they have encouraged farmers to change their crops to either legumes or vegetables. Cacayan said farmers could also plant aerobic rice, which is resistant to droughts and could thrive with some rains.

Rainwater law THE proposed ordinance for the proper harvesting, storage and utilization for rain water in Cagayan de Oro was discussed by the City Council committee on public works and engineering. The proposed ordinance provides that the city shall promote the proper harvesting, storage and utilization as a viable alternative source of water supply primarily for non-potable use including domestic usage for flushing toilets, general cleaning, and washing of clothes, urban agriculture, landscape irrigation and supplement water source for industrial, commercial, institutional, agricultural usage, among others. It also provides that the city shall encourage and support the adaptation and development of appropriate technology related to rainwater utilization by medium to large size commercial, institutional and industrial establishments including medium to high-end residential subdivisions which are primarily consuming high volume of freshwater.

Decide Your Destiny

T

hink a minute…A man was cleaning his car with a special brush when a little girl who had been watching him said, “My daddy has a brush like that to clean his car too.” “Really!” said the man. “What kind of car does your daddy have?” The little girl answered: “Oh, he hasn’t got the car yet, but he’s got the brush to clean it.” Well, I suppose you have to start somewhere! The important thing is that you do get started. And to do that, we first have to decide what kind of life we want. It’s strange how many of us want to live forever, when we can’t even decide what to do with our life now! Like the guy who said: “I’m going to stop putting things off, starting tomorrow.” You see, even if others have made decisions for you, you can still decide how you’ll respond and handle the life that’s been handed to you. You still have control of your own attitudes. Happiness is an attitude and choice, no matter what situation you’re in. Remember, you can always find someone worse off than you whom you can help. It’s only when we stop looking at our own problems and reach out to make others happy, that we ourselves can be truly happy. But if you choose not to make a decision, that also is your decision you’ll live with. There are many smart, talented people who have never enjoyed the success they could have, simply because they

THINK

A Minute

Jhan Tiafau Hurst could not make a decision and discipline themselves to follow through with it. Remember, if your life doesn’t change, it’s going stay the same! It’s that simple. So to move on from where you are, you must first decide where you’d rather be. If you can’t change your mind, you can’t change your life. “The moment you’re through changing, you’re through!” The great writer Tolstoy said: “Everyone wants to change the world, but no one wants to change himself.” So ask yourself right now: What’s the one decision I need to make to change my life? The smartest one you can make is to ask your own Maker to take control of your life every day. Then with Jesus’ power, you can start making the best choices that will change you and give you the new life you want. In fact, you can decide your destiny today. Just Think a Minute…

Wh a t d o e s y o u r company stand to gain from encouraging its employees to express themselves? The answer: productivity and innovation—the bread and butter of any forward-thinking

business. When your employees feel free to express themselves, they find unique and fulfilling ways to contribute to the value of the company. This, in turn, engenders a desire to commit to your company’s longterm success. The following are ways in which you can help your employees express better themselves in the workplace: • Give employees a judgment-free platform for posting any questions, comments, or concerns they have regarding the policies of the company. • Encourage

employees at all levels to submit custom solutions to company problems. • Allot employees’ personal time to pursue unique work-related projects. Google has applied this principle with overwhelming success. • Relax company policies on dress code, conduct, computer time, and breaks as much as possible. Happier employees result in a more active and creative environment. • Soften hierarchal and departmental boundaries by e n c o u r a g i n g

transparency, communication, and teamwork. • Eliminate meaningless metrics of employee satisfaction, such as paper surveys, and promote face-toface dialogues instead. By encouraging your employees to form a deeper relationship with your company, you foster a sense of mutual purpose between employee and company. Try some or all of these suggestions, and chances are you will see a concrete improvement in turnover rates and employee satisfaction.

PAO helps others while its lawyers are unpaid?

L

IFE’S INSPIRATIONS: “… For it is God’s will that by doing good you should silence the ignorant talk of foolish people…” (1 Peter 2:15, the Holy Bible). -ooo PAO HELPS OTHERS WHILE IT S LAWYERS ARE UNPAID? I commend lawyer Persida Rueda Acosta, national chief of the Public Attorneys Office (PAO) of the Department of Justice, in her immediate offer of assistance to those who maybe victimized by the so-called “tanim bala” syndicate at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport, because victims do need immediate legal help. But I wish that she would also attend, with similar dispatch, to complaints that there are lawyers of the PAO who have not been paid their salaries despite having already completed their work. Indeed, this maybe the reason why, according to some poor litigants, some PAO personnel resort to demanding fees for their s e r v i c e s , w he n t hat i s supposed to be for free. I hope my informants are wrong about this claim. But, indeed, charity begins at home. Before battling the problems of others, we should all endeavor to resolve

our problems first, not only because that will make us more effective in helping others, but more so because it is our duty to look after our own at all times. -ooo WHY NO INTEREST IN PCOS SOURCE CODE REVIEW? I cannot understand why the major political parties participating and which have big stakes in the upcoming 2016 elections have been shying away from the on-going source code review for precinct count optical scan (PCOS) machines sponsored by the Commission on Elections at the St. Andrews Hall of the De La Salle University in Manila. We have heard of many complaints from various g ro up s a n d i nt e re s t e d individuals, to the effect that rampant computerized cheating characterized the 2010 and the 2013 elections, on account of the alleged refusal of the Comelec to allow a review of the PCOS source code (or the set of computer instructions that will be used to run the PCOS machines during elections). So, how come major political parties appear uninterested in, at the very least, witnessing the review

of the source code being spearheaded by the Comelec at De La Salle University? I can only proffer two guesses: one, that they are not really interested to win, or two, they know they will win anyway, with or without a review of the source code. -ooo HUNGER, POVERTY: D I R E C T R E S U LT O F UNGODLINESS: So, more Filipinos have gone hungry in the last several months, proving once again that nothing substantial and nothing beneficial really came out of the economic p olicies of the Aquino government, and despite its claims of economic boom during the last five years that it is in power. If the truth be told, hunger and poverty took a turn for the worst while President Aquino was trumpeting his government’s supposed economic gains. Indeed, if there was any economic success in the country, it benefitted only the already rich and powerful, but never the poor who have always remained poor, and whose poverty only increased all the more under Aquino. Why is this happening? Well, we have been told by the Bible, in its Deuteronomy

K akampi

Mo A ng Batas

Atty. Batas Mauricio 28:15 and 20, that people will continue to be afflicted with poverty, with rebuke and with dissension, for as long as they continue refusing to listen to the Word of God, the Bible, and for as long as we continue being hardheaded, refusing to obey God’s commands. -ooo PLEASE LISTEN: “Ang Tanging Daan” (The Sole Way): a Bible study and prayer session online could now be heard, 24 HOURS a day, in the Philippines and the world at www.facebook.com/ angtangingdaan or www. facebook.com/ANDKNK (For ANDKNK, look for “Ang Tanging Daan” broadcasts).

Discipline is based on pride, on meticulous attention to details, and on mutual respect and confidence. Discipline must be a habit so ingrained that it is stronger than the excitement of the goal or the fear of failure.

C orporateWorld 6 Puregold to buy back more shares 2013 ppi’S Best in Business and Economic Reporting

UREGOLD Price Club, Inc., owned by billionaire Lucio and Susan Co, is buying more of its shares in the m ar k e t an d am en d i ng its charter to reflect its foray into the remittance business. The supermarket operator told the stock e xch ange ye s te rd ay it s board of directors approved the renewal of its authority to purchase Puregold shares in the open market. Puregold approved a P1billion buy-back program last year, but less than P50 million worth of shares have been purchased since then, Puregold Investor Relations Officer John T. Hao said in a phone interview. “It’s just a continuation of t h e pro g r a m w h i c h started last year.

Madami pa kasing natira (There’s still a lot left),” Mr. Hao said. Likewise, the retailer i s a d d i n g “r e m i t t a n c e operation” in its Articles of Incorporation in compliance with the requirements of the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP), Mr. Hao said. Puregold started offering re m itt an c e s e r v i c e s i n January last year to test the business using a pl at for m d e vel op e d by Globe Telecom, Inc.’s mobile money service GCash. I n J u l y, P u r e g o l d expanded the company’s pure cash remittance business through PurePadala. The ser vice gives OFWs an option to convert the money they sent home into grocery items or be used to pay for utilities

and education -- making the retailer a “one-stop shop” for consumers and setting apart Puregold from its rivals. Remittances fuel consumer spending, a key driver of the country’s gross domestic product (GDP). The amount of money

sent home by OFWs dropp ed 0.6% year-onyear in August -- the first monthly decline since April 2003 -- to $2.04 billion, t he B ang ko S e nt r a l ng Pilipinas (BSP) said. The eight-month tally was up by 4.1% to $16.21 billion. The government expects $25.6

billion in remittances for 2015, up 5% year-on-year. At end-June, Puregold was operating 258 stores nationwide including nine S&R Membership Shopping stores and 10 S&R New York Style pizza stores. From 2015 to 2019, the listed retailer is rolling

out 1 2 5 n e w s t ore s - equivalent to 25 stores every year -- that will bring its total branch network to 358 stores, excluding acquisitions. Puregold saw a 21.1% rise in first-semester bottom line to P2 billion from yearago’s P1.66 billion.

Vista Land launches Cebu project A UNIT of Vista Land & Lifescapes, Inc. is riding on the booming real estate sector in Cebu with the development of Vista Suarez Cebu, a twin-tower mixeduse development. C onsidered as Vista Residences, Inc.’s most ambitious project in the Visayas, Vista Suarez Cebu will have hotel and residential components and will rise on Gorordo Avenue, in the middle of the metro’s key hubs: Fuente Osmeña Circle, the Cebu Provincial Capitol, and the Cebu Business Park, the property developer said in a statement. The sixth to the 14th floor of Vista Suarez will

be run as a hotel, while the 15th to the 28th floor will make up condotel or serviced residences, providing the owners the option to have their units leased out to short- or long-term staying guests for investments. Monthly rental rate in the area is approximately at P800-P1,000 per square meter (sqm.), Vista Land said. “With the business and lifestyle dynamic Cebu has to offer, and the growth predicted for this busy metro, leasing opportunities are immense,” Vista Land said. “ C e b u i s Vi s a y a s Mindanao’s key business hub. This means not only

is the expat and employee population on the rise, but the number of schools and universities the city has to offer signifies a major growth in the student population as well,” it added. At the top four floors will be residential studios, one- and two-bedroom flats, and penthouse suites. Cebu is in the middle of a real estate boom, anchored on the city’s growing economy that spurred demand for homes, offices, recreational as well as hotel facilities. In 2012, real estate became C ebu’s f aste st - g row i ng sector, with a revenue growth rate of 18.8%, Vista Land said.

The secretary also assured the right-of-way (ROW) issues in Mindanao is being solved through inter-agency efforts, comprised of local government units (LGUs), the Philippine National Police (PNP) and the Philippine Army (PA). L a s t w e e k , a b om b exploded in Marawi City, d e s t roy i ng t wo of t h e transmission towers of g r id-op erator Nat iona l Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP), which carries the power lines connecting the Mindanao grid to Agus 1 and 2. Monsada explained that the bombing is likely not election related, as one tower was blown into smithereens early this year. She called on the public to report suspicious-looking men to the authorities. Monsada stressed another possible bombing along the Agus power plant was prevented due to reports from the public. With the expected surplus, on the other hand, Monsada said the DOE has tapped the Philippine Electricity Market Corp. (PEMC) to prepare for the Wholesale Electricity Spot Market (WESM) integration of Mindanao through a report. She added that the report will likely be completed by the first quarter of next year. It consists of the preparations of generation companies and

distribution utilities. The secretary also said the DOE expects the surplus of power supply in Mindanao by the second quarter of next year, adding a market should be activated by that time. Monsada bared the El Niño phenomenon had pushed back the excess in power capacity for Mindanao to the second quarter of 2016, which was initially expected during the first quarter. On Tuesday, the NGCP also said in a statement that the Mindanao grid was on red alert, with a shortage of 40 megawatts. The grid operator stressed the power supply was improved by the return of coal-fired STEAG State Power Inc. (SPI) and the Mt. Apo geothermal, as power from Agus 1 and 2 was cut due to the bombing last week. NG C P assu re d it is working to restore the BaloiAgus 2 line. The grid operator appeals to the public to help monitor the safety of its towers. “If anyone sees anything suspicious at or around our towers and facilities, please inform us immediately. You may text us your tips and other information at 09178791077,” NGCP said. (PNA)

before others will come,” Jain said. She said one of the areas being eyed as manufacturing hub is the Zamboanga City Special Economic Z one Authority and Freeport or Zamboecozone. “Zamboanga Peninsula is the country’s number one rubber producing region translating to almost 40 percent of the total natural rubber production. We are looking at Zamboecozone as a good destination for rubber pro duc t manufac turing because they have incentives that we can dangle to our potential investors,” she said. She said they are also promoting the province of Zamboanga Sibugay being the biggest rubber producer in the Zamboanga Peninsula. Arnold Yap, DTI’s regional rubber industry focal person, said 2014 records showed that Region 9 has an area of 86,452 hectares planted to rubber with a production of 191,610 metric tons. Yap said 70,205 of the 86,452 hectares planted to rubber are located in Zamboanga Sibugay. The province’ rubber production is 143,084.22 MT. Jain stressed the rubber industry, through manufacturing, could further contribute to the nation’s economy. She said there is only one car tire manufacturer in the country, the Yokohama Tire Philippines Inc., and two motorcycle tire manufacturers.

“If we can encourage more to go into motorcycle tire manufacturing in Mindanao, it would be very beneficial for Mindanao, and this is what we intend to do in the conduct of PRIME 2015,” she said. She said the government’s vision for the rubber i n d u s t r y i s “f o r l o c a l producers to venture into manufacturing so that by 2030 the Philippines will be able to position rubber pro du c t s i n t h e wor l d market.” PRIME 2015 is expected to gather 750 rubber industry players from nine regions in the country, all six regions in Mindanao, two from Luzon, namely Regions 4A and 4B, and Region VII or Central Visayas. As of last week, Jain said 650 participants had signified their intent to attend the gathering. “ We a r e i n v i t i n g buyers, pro ducers, and manufacturers because there will be business and market matching,” she said. She said they invited seven international speakers who are all experts in the field of rubber industry. They include Sheela Thomas, secretary general of Kuala Lumpur-based Association of Natural Rubber Producing Counties; Dr. Dar Wong, one of Singapore’s best consultants; and Dr. Abdel Aziz Kabir, secretary general of International Rubber Research and Development Board.

Red Ribbon launches ‘mas creamy sarap’ Polvoron for every Filipino home Everyone has that one special food item that brings memories of home. Arguably for Filipinos, this is the classic Polvoron. Red Ribbon, one of the biggest bakeshops in the Philippines, introduces its Classic Polvoron—a delightful treat that bursts a meltin-your-mouth sweetness and creaminess, leaving an aftertaste that’s sure to make Filipinos grab for more. According to Zinnia Rivera, general manager of Red Ribbon, the Classic Polvoron offers just the right amount of sweetness, with more “creamy sarap” goodness. “The creamy taste of Polvoron has an empowering taste that brings Filipinos back to their childhood years,” Rivera said. “Since adults enjoy the rich, creamy taste of Polvoron, they now share their all-time favorite treat to their children. With Red Ribbon’s Classic Polvoron in place, children and adults alike will find our creamy variant more irresistible.” The Red Ribbon Classic Polvoron comes in singles, pack of eights (8s) and box of 16s.
