Death threats come true for Iligan City radio commentator By Froilan Gallardo of MindaNews

ILIGAN City––Slain radio commentator Fernando “Nanding” Solijon of DXLS-Love Radio had received so many death threats apparently due to his journalistic work, the police and his wife confirmed.

Solijon was so concerned of his safety that he even asked his friends to close the doors of the sari-sari store where they were drinking so they could not be seen from the outside that fateful Thursday night. With lots of death threats, he felt it was wise that nobody from the outside could see him

and fellow radio reporters Dario Navales and Alvin Suan drinking inside the store in Purok 1, Barangay Buruun in Iligan City, said Chief Insp. Isralene Lauren, of Task Force Solijon created to investigate the killing. “That was his fatal mistake. Although it’s true that nobody can see them [from the outside],

they could not also see that the suspects were already outside the store waiting for Solijon to appear,” Lauren said. Martin Ongon, a watchman at the nearby Iligan City National School of Fisheries, said he noticed the two killers of Solijon were already waiting for their victim as early as 7 p.m. on Thursday.

Because he did not find it unusual, Ongon said he did not mind the presence of the two suspects who were on a white-striped blue Honda XRM motorcycle. “The suspects would sometimes leave and would come back a few minutes later. There was nothing unusual in their See threats, page 14

They will also collect comments and reactions from them regarding the still pending Magna Carta for students, which they preferably termed as Students’ Right and Welfare (StRAW) bill. This StRAW bill is created as a measure to safeguard the freedom and rights of the students. The primers of this bill believe that the state

recognizes the vital role of education as a fundamental aspect of any civilization, which is also reflected in the Philippine Constitution under Article II, Section 13. Going to the grassroots level, according to him, is very important to emphasize the importance of passing the bill, the reason this consultation was conducted. He also added that there is still students’ discrimination even in the urban schools, so how much more in the small ones. It is already 15 years that they have struggled in order for this bill to be passed and until now it is still pending. In the meeting, there are discussions and open fora conducted. This activity was the third they held as part of their nationwide consultation. They already met students from Luzon and Visayas and did the same procedure.

NGCP shows generosity in the midst of disaster Right after the onslaught of Tropical Storm Maring and the southwest monsoon over most parts of Luzon, the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP) organized a relief operation for the residents of Biñan, one of the most stricken cities in Laguna. Despite having its South Luzon Regional Office and two substations – Biñan and Sucat –submerged in flood a few days before the relief operation, NGCP still found a way to help by donating clean drinking water and food to 3,000

affected families from 11 barangays in Biñan. One of the affected barangays, Brgy. San Vicente, hosts NGCP’s Regional Office and Biñan Substation. The relief operation was held last August 23 at NGCP’s South Luzon Regional Office Gym. NGCP employees led by Mr. Fernando S. Abesamis, Head of South Luzon Operations and Maintenance, and Mr. Nelson F. Cabangon, Head of Corporate Affairs, volunteered to distribute the donations. Present in the activity

2 soldiers hurt in North Cotabato explosion By FERDINANDH B. CABRERA

COTABATO CITY —An improv is e d b omb a llegedly planted by the B a n g s a m o r o Is l a m i c Freedom Fighters (BIFF) exploded in Barangay Nabalawag, Midsayap, North Cotabato at around 7 a.m. Friday, wounding two soldiers, military officials said. Captain Tony Bulao, 602nd Infantry Brigade spokesperson, identified the victims only as Staff Sergeant Ubogan and Sergeant Sapon, who belong to the Charlie Company of the Army’s 40th Infantry Battalion (IB). The soldiers were on their way to fetch water when the bomb exploded some 200 meters away from

the headquarters of the Charlie Company, he said. Lt. Col. Bon Huet, 40th IB commander, blamed the explosion to the BIFF, a breakaway group of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front. “Maybe they got mad at us because of our persistent efforts to prevent them from penetrating and targeting populated areas, that’s why they attacked our men,” he said. An improvised 60-mm mortar shell triggered by a cellular phone was used in the attack, the military said. The wounded soldiers were brought to the Camp Siongco hospital and are now in stable condition. Abu Misry Mama, BIFF

spokesperson, earlier said they will continue attacking military detachments in pursuit of their fight for Bangsamoro independence. Meanwhile, a grenade exploded at around 2 a.m. Friday near the house of Anwar Lucas, barangay captain of Rosary Heights 10. His house is located at the back of the city hall here. He said the explosion shattered their bedroom’s glass window. Lucas ruled out politics in the grenade attack and believed that robbers and drug runners were behind it, citing their drive against criminal activities in the area. (Ferdinandh Cabrera/ MindaNews)

Collado from the Pulabato Tribal Council; and Jean Ferrari of the Legal Rights Center. The priest said murder charges will be filed against members of the Task Force Kitaco and the 39th Infantry Battalion. Pamplona, SAC’s advocacy officer, said there are at least 10 witnesses who will testify against the suspects. Celso Doc, Pulabato t r ib a l chief t ain and a nephew of Anteng Freay, is helping the SAC build up the case against the military, Pamplona said. Doc, also the barangay captain of Pulabato in Tampakan, South Cotabato, is among the tribal chieftains known to support the mining venture of SMI. Pamplona said Doc’s stance on the Tampakan project is “becoming clearer” with his intention to help file a case against the military. Doc could not be reached for comment Counter charge Capt. William Rodriguez, 1002nd Infantr y Brigade spokesperson, said Thursday they would welcome the case that would be filed against the military. “We are open to any investigation,” he said in a telephone interview. Rodriguez said the numerous bullets that the SAC team found “did not come from the military but from the armed men” who attacked the soldiers securing the site hours after the Freays were killed.

He said the families of slain government security forces would also file cases against the armed men opposing the mining project of SMI. Since February 2013, we have recorded 11 attacks against military detachments in the mines development site, leading to the death of three militiamen, Rodriguez said. Among those facing murder charges for these attacks are Daguel Capion and Iking Freay, he said. C api on s t ar t e d t h e armed tribal opposition against SMI for allegedly disrespecting the rights of the indigenous peoples. Last October, his wife Juvy and their two children were killed in what the military claimed was a “legitimate military operation.” Until the August 23 incident, the military has been on the defensive posture despite the attacks in their detachments by the armed men because “we want to show that we are for peace” in the area, Rodriguez said. The Tampakan project of SMI is the largest known undeveloped copper-gold reserve in Southeast Asia, containing an estimated 17.9 million ounces of gold and 15 million metric tons of copper deposits. Glencore Xstrata plc owns 62.5 percent of the controlling equity after the merger of the two companies, while the rest or 37.5 percent is held by Australian firm Indophil Resources NL. (Bong S.

Swapping of murder raps grips Tampakan minefield K O R O N A D A L CIT Y(MindaNe ws/29 August)—The family of a re vere d t r ib a l elde r will file murder charges against the militar y as they maintained that “Bong Fulong” or tribal leader Anteng Freay and his 17-year old son, Victor, were not killed in an encounter inside the mines development site of foreign-backed Sagittarius Mines, Inc. (SMI) on August 23, contrary to the military’s claim. Fr. Joy Pelino, Social Ac t i o n C e nt e r ( S AC ) director of the Diocese of Marbel, noted in its fact-finding report that t he a l lege d encounter “happened only after the military killed the two.” A total of 134 empty shells of different highpowered guns were found in Anteng Freays’ place alone, the priest said. “B ong Fu long” was killed outside his house near the road in Bulol Kalon, Sitio T’bol, Brgy.

Before surrender, Napoles already arrested? LIFE’S INSPIRATIONS: “… Jesus said, `If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free’…” (Jesus Christ, our God and Savior, in John 8:31-32, the Holy Bible). -oooDOUBTS RAISED ON NAPOLES SURRENDER TO PNOY: Scripted? Stagedmanaged? Or plain and simple deception? These are the questions going around in the Philippines hours after Janet Lim Napoles was reported to have surrendered to President Aquino and turned over to the Philippine National Police and then to the Makati City Regional Trial Court, and then detained in an air-conditioned room at the Makati City Jail. The doubt as to whether Napoles surrendered or not, or has actually been in detention or government custody even before President Aquino announced he was giving a P10 million reward

Kakampi mo ang batas Atty. Batas Mauricio for the arrest of Napoles at about 9 a.m. on August 28, 2013, is now being triggered by a Facebook posting of Filipino-American broadcaster Lino Celle or Radio Mindanao Network (RMN) Radio Pinoy in New York, USA which disclosed that Napoles, as of “0200 hours (2:00 a.m.) Manila time”, was already under detention. By mathematical computation, it would appear that Celle’s August 28, 2013 2.a.m. post preceded the announcement by President Aquino of a P10 million reward for Napoles’ arrest by seven (7) hours, and by about 19 hours Malacanang’s announcement of the supposed surrender of Napoles

to President Aquino. -oooBEFORE SURRENDER, NAPOLES ALREADY ARRESTED? If Lino Celle’s Facebook posting on August 28, 2013, 2 a.m. Manila time, was correct, it would mean that when the President announced the P10 million reward as of 9 a.m. also on August 28, 2013, Napoles was already under arrest and detention by the Aquino government. And if that Facebook posting of Lino Celle was correct, it would further mean that when Napoles and her lawyer, Lorna Kapunan, and husband Jimmy, allegedly surrendered to the President in Malacanang at

about 9:37 p.m. on August 28, 2013, she was in fact already under arrest and detention at that time. Certainly, the President and his entire government owe the Filipino nation an explanation about all these things, right away. I mean, if Lino Celle’s Facebook posting cannot be explained satisfactorily, then, we cannot blame our countrymen for thinking that not only Napoles’ surrender was scripted, but that there is something very big going on behind the scenes as far as the P10 billion pork barrel controversy is concerned, right? -oooFIL-AM BROADCASTER FACEB O OK POST LEAKS NAPOLES ARREST: Here is a portion of Lino Celle’s posting which is now circulating in social media, Facebook among others: “An anonymous source in the Philippine Department of Justice said `Napoles is (being) detained in an See ARREST, page 14

Money matters in marriage

THINK a Minute. Does money matter much in marriage? You bet it does! Did you know that money problems cause some of the biggest problems between husbands and wives! Sadly, in some marriages it doesn’t take long for wedding bells to turn into wedding bills and debts. At the beginning of some relationships opposites attract, but later opposites attack each other. The husband and wife have different values, so they disagree on how to spend their money and what each thinks is a waste of money. For example, the husband may like to spend money on beer, fishing equipment, or a television and stereo. But his wife thinks all that is a terrible

Think A Minute Jhan Tiafau Hurst waste of their money and income. She wants to buy new clothes and jewelry, or go out to eat at restaurants. That’s what she enjoys. But her husband cannot understand how anyone would want to waste money on things like that. There’s a story about an old farmer who decided later in life that he wanted to get married. So he put this advertisement in the newspaper: “Lonely farmer looking for a wife. She must be in her 40’s and own a good tractor. Please send

photo of tractor.” To say the least, that old geezer was not very smooth. He didn’t even try to hide what was important to him. So when a husband and wife have very different values on what’s important and what they should spend their money on, what should they do? They both need to compromise and cut back on their spending, before their debts get bigger. You see, the daily pressure and stress from big debts or loans, can divide and eventually destroy a

marriage! Maybe you’ve heard the phrase: “There’s no such thing as a free lunch!” Sooner or later we have to pay! Self-centered, uncontrolled spending will not only cost you money, but it can even cost you your marriage and family! If you’ve not been responsible in your spending, and your marriage and family are suffering under the pressure and stress from your unpaid debts, then won’t you ask Jesus Christ to forgive you? Then ask Him to take control of your life and how you spend your money? Jesus can give you the self-discipline and willpower you need to finally take control of your money problems, so they will not control you and your family. Just Think a Minute.

MEETING ON BUB/LPRAP FOR CORN. In its earnest intent to suitably address the development needs of the poorest cities and municipalities throughout the region, the Department of Agriculture – Regional Field Office 10 (DA-10) through the Agri-Pinoy Corn Program, recently met with the representatives from the city and municipal local government units in a Writeshop/Coaching Session for the Preparation and Refinement of Local Poverty Reduction Action Plan (LPRAP) projects for Corn Commodity at the DA-10 Conference Room, Antonio Luna St., here in the city. The assembly mainly tackled the Bottoms-Up Budgeting (BUB) eligibility requirements and status, the submitted BUB proposals, and procedural requirements for the ten cities and municipalities of Bukidnon, Camiguin, Lanao del Norte and Misamis Occidental who are still underway in implementing projects under the LPRAP/ BUB. DA-10 Regional Corn Program Coordinator Larry Er. Paraluman (extreme right) said that through this initiative the planning and budgeting process of both local and national governments will become more participatory thru the genuine involvement of grassroots organizations and communities. Out of the 609 LPRAP/ BUB projects for the year 2013, he further reported that 595 were submitted consisting of 58 from the region. # (Joanne L. Olson, DA-10)

Beyond internet activism QUESTION EVERYTHING By Mong Palatino of Bulatlat.com

THE opposite of internet activism is not street activism but no-activism. Online petitions and political hashtags are indispensable in the campaign for change while non-action is a convenient option that only serves the interest of status quo. Internet activism is sometimes equated with impotence but at least it exists. There are no TV activists and newspaper activists but there are internet activists. Why is this so? Because corporate ownership of mainstream media has made it impossible for the people to dictate the agenda in major media networks. Meanwhile, the internet has become truly social by allowing the people to create and exchange cyber tools that can be used for political purposes. We are still in the stage of experimentation on how the internet can be redirected and reshaped to serve the community. Various forces are still competing for dominance in the online world at a time when corporate conglomerates and government bodies are not yet able to impose an absolute hegemony on how we use and practice the potential of the internet technology.

Indeed, because of intensified militarization and commodification, the internet has become a more dangerous place than ever where the space for independent thought and practice is under threat. But since total government regulation is still unenforceable at the moment, this technology should not be easily surrendered to the enemy. The internet-plus-activism equation must be continually pursued. And the undeniable fact is that among the most resolute and creative practitioners of internet activism in the country are the militant activists of the parliament of the streets. They have been consistently maximizing the most effective social media tools to promote their causes and recruit members. They have successfully initiated several campaigns that combine the offline and online to make a greater political impact such as the text jokes at the height of Edsa Dos, Hello Garci ringtones, and disappearing Facebook profiles. Activists are as tech-savvy as they are often caricatured to be grim and determined. Connecting, networking, collaborating, crowdsourcing – these are actually popular keywords of traditional activism. Internet activism became

a real reality not because activists have stopped shouting and marching in the streets in order to join the so-called virtual rallies in wired world. On the contrary, activists continued to ‘occupy’ the streets while they actively shared apps and status updates online. In other words, offline activism is inevitably online as well. This is internet activism. This is activism in the 21st century. But what separates activists from internet worshippers is the belief of the former that what really matters in the end is the political empowerment of the people. And to do this, the grassroots must learn to struggle and fight for broader political goals. They must organize not just their inbox but the whole society. Unfortunately, there are self-proclaimed internet activists who also claim to empower the citizens but emphatically reject politics. They simply want the magic of IT to deliver the message minus the radical threat of politics. They aim to restrict the scope of internet activism by focusing on issues that can be accommodated by mainstream media. Their political strategy consists of dismissing street politics and depoliticizing the content of internet activism,

or what is left of it. They engage in infinite conversations about peripheral social issues, or political concerns that do not address the roots of injustice and inequality in society. They gossip about the lifestyle of the rich, they ridicule the poor, and they assuage their guilt by lampooning corrupt politicians and shady public characters. This brand of internet activism is embraced by closet conservatives, pseudo-reformists, and even by politicians who pretend to be social media enthusiasts. Politics-less internet activism, not internet activism, is the problem that must be dealt with decisively. The challenge should not be simply about exhorting the netizens to support the masses but to restore politics proper in online activism.

the poor and it should be but arrogant drone. (http:// bulatlat.com) outrightly rejected.

What’s the use of persuading a Twitter user to attend an offline event organized by the state to distract the attention of the public and weaken the fighting enthusiasm of the online citizens? There is little to celebrate if netizens turned off their gadgets and integrated in the communities just so that they can spread the doctrine of cash transfers and self-demolition. This is activism that disempowers

Iligan City, Philippines this 15th day of August 2013.

Internet activism must remain political, subversive or revolutionary even. If necessary, it must not be afraid to cut links with corporate sponsors, state functionaries, and knowledge-producing institutions to promote digital democracy. It must aggressively espouse the truth even if it would disrupt the comforts of the networks and even if it would contradict popular opinion. Otherwise, it would degenerate into a useless

MALL giant SM Investments Corp. (SMIC) is building its second mall in Cagayan de Oro City and a new one in Butuan City to take advantage of the region’s strong economic growth. Debby Go, assistant vicepresident for Mindanao operations of Shopping Center Management Corp., said that new shopping malls would start contributing additional revenues next year while convention centers are already under study, officials said. “In Mindanao, we have expansion in Cagayan de Oro and Butuan,” Go said. “Mindanao doesn’t have as much competition, not as competitive as Manila. There’s a lot of cities to expand to,” she said. SM Butuan will start commerci a l op erat ions next year while the new SM Cagayan de Oro will open late 2014 or early 2015. The increasing number of shoppers, backed by economic developments in Butuan and Cagayan de Oro, is enough to support a new mall, Go said. “The second Cagayan de Oro mall is at the heart of the city. We’re expected to get the downtown area market,” Go said, adding that the existing mall in the area currently serves the uptown and nearby expands | page 13

TAGUM City, Davao del Norte––The Davao del Norte Association of Private Schools (DNAPS) on Saturday expressed support for the passage of House Bill 241 filed by Compostela Valley 1st District Rep. Maria Carmen Zamora which aims to give additional income tax exemption to parents in order to ease their financial burden in preparation for the full implementation of senior high school program come 2016. In an interview, Pastor Elias Cabagunay, President of the Davao del Norte Association of Private Schools, said that the passage of House Bill 241 will be of great help to parents knowing that additional two years basic education of their children entails expenses.

“We do commend the initiative of Rep. Zamora for understanding the plight of the parents as this legislation which seeks to give a “tax relief ” to parents who are burdened already of paying high taxes to the government and this will surely redound to the education of their children,” Cabagunay said. House Bill 241, as proposed by Representative Maria Carmen Zamora, seeks to amend Chapter Vll, Section 35 (B) of the National Internal Revenue Code (NIRC), as amended, to allow an additional exemption of P50,000 for each taxpayer’s dependent not exceeding four. As provided in Section 35(B) of Republic Act 9504, an additional exemption of 25,000 for each taxpayer’s dependent will be granted as long as it does not exceed beyond four dependents. Only one of the spouses,

in case of married individuals, will be granted additional exemptions for dependents. “The proposal will give really parents a tax break if the law will be passed and at the same time they will be given also the chance to support their children’s education under the K to 12 program of Department Education,”Cabagunay said. However, Cabagunay said, private schools in Davao del Norte are still on the stage of determining whether or not they will offer specialized senior high school programs, citing that offering the latter needs thorough preparation as this involves expenses too. Davao del Norte Association of Private Schools (DNAPS) has 73 member-schools in Davao del Norte province offering complete basic education.

Davao Oriental guv: Scrap PDAF ‘to be one with the nation but…’ By Carolyn O. Arguillas of MindaNews

DAVAO City––Davao Oriental Vice Governor Joel Mayo Almario has written a five-page brief calling for the abolition of the Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF) because it is “the popular call” and “it has outgrown safety measures for its proper use” but said the needs of the barangays “must be addressed.” “The Napoles PDAF scam came at the right time when the Aquino administration is in full swing towards the ‘daang matuwid.’ The popular call for the day is abolish PDAF/pork barrel. It may be rightly so as it has outgrown safety measures for its proper use. Never mind if despite the PDAF’s unpopularity, there are still legislative districts whose PDAF allocations were put into good use. Scrap it to be one with the nation,” Almario said in his fivepager on the PDAF which he emailed to MindaNews shortly before noon Friday.

But while pushing for its abolition, Almario proposed that the purpose for which PDAF was established “should inspire the administration to immediately find and establish a scheme so as not to lose steam in its effort for countryside development.” Without PDAF, he asked, “to whom will the barangay people endorse their requests for funding support for needed and vital projects which the local government units cannot afford such as energization of sitios?” Thousands of Filipinos took to the streets on August 26 to express their outrage over the pork barrel scam. Four modes Almario, Representative of the 2nd district of Davao Oriental from 1998 to 2007, and his mother Thelma, representative from 1987 to 1998 and back again since 2007 until 2016, were among the legislators identified in the Commission on Audit’s

Special Audits Office Report No. 2012-03 published in the COA website on August 16, 2013, on the PDAF releases in 2007 to 2009. The mother and son were cited for having projects funded from the PDAF whose supplier, PZA Trading, could not be located at their given address and whose items were overpriced, such as the 343 “multipurpose tents” their PDAF funded at P37,500 to at least P43,000 each or a total of P14.58 million. Almario said the representatives’ constituency work in the barangays, gives them the “actual picture of the real needs in the field” and makes their legislative work meaningful as it allows them to craft laws to address these needs but there other concerns that do not need laws but government funding support. He listed four modes which can be resorted to: the PDAF which is equal to all districts at P70 million

a year for soft and hard projects; coordinating and convincing the department secretaries to include in their organic budget funding for the needed project proposals “which explain why some districts get more than the PDAF;” congressional insertion or initiative in the departments’ proposed budgets is an alternative “though highly dependent on the lobbying skills of the congress member which also results to some districts getting more,” and funding support from the President himself. “Whichever mode and assuming the request for funding support is granted, the concerned and appropriate government agency implements the proposed projects following the usual budgeting, accounting, and auditing rules and regulations,” he said. “Un-Filipino” He said people’s scrap | page 14

Palace adviser: Paradigm shift essential for climate adaptation MANILA -- Presidential adviser on environmental protection Sec. Nereus Acosta is advocating a paradigm shift in investments, infrastructure, insurance, institutional arrangements and information dissemination. He noted such action is essential in helping the country adapt to and survive the changing climate. ”Climate change forces us to rethink and redo things,” he said. He raised urgency for action, warning studies show archipelagic Philippines is among countries most at risk for climate changedriven onslaught of weather extremes as well as sea level and temperature rise. ”Preparedness comes with realization of such new normal,” he said. Last week, Luzon reeled anew from flooding as the southwest monsoon or habagat enhanced by tropical storm Maring (international name Trami) dumped heavy rainfall in various areas of the island. Government weather agency Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) reported data from its station in Sangley show the

enhanced habagat dumped on Aug. 21 a record 475.4 mm of rainfall in Cavite province. PAGASA s aid such downpour exceeded the 354.2 mm rainfall its Sangley station registered for Cavite from onslaught of ‘habagat’ there on Aug. 7 last year. The downpour in Cavite also surpassed the Sangley station’s 457.2 mm normal August rainfall value, PAGASA continued. Weather data generated in the Sangley station represents conditions in Cavite, PAGASA noted. PAGASA continues promoting public vigilance and action on expected weather developments nationwide, earlier projecting climate change to drive wetter rainy seasons and drier summers in the future. Acosta also noted environmental degradation elevates need for preparedness and adaptation measures. He pointed out the country already has less forest cover so the uplands can no longer retain as much water and soil as before, causing these to cascade to lowlands and water bodies there. Experts noted pollution already reduced several of

those water bodies’ carrying capacity so inflow of such water and soil increases the possibility of overflows there, flooding communities. Onslaught of wetter rainy seasons will exacerbate the situation, they warned. ”We’re becoming more vulnerable,” Acosta said. The presidential adviser is optimistic the landmark climate-smart headquarters of Laguna Lake Development Authority he heads will help raise public awareness and action on climate change adaptation. Earlier, Acosta said LLDA targets soft launching around October this year its headquarters in Quezon City’s National Ecology Center. He noted environmentfriendly measures like natural lighting, ventilation and cooling as well as rainwater harvesting are among features of LLDA’s headquarters. Experts continue pushing for environment-friendly buildings, noting such structures are among top emitters of greenhousegases. GHGs trap heat in the atmosphere, resulting in higher global temperature that drives climate change. (PNA)

ASEAN countries urge to support recommendation on haze monitoring SINGAPORE -- ASEAN environment senior officials agreed to propose to the ASEAN environment ministers to support the recommendation of the 15th Meeting of the Sub-Regional Ministerial Steering Committee on Trans-boundary Haze Pollution regarding the Haze Monitoring System, the city-state's National Environment Agency (NEA) said Thursday. The agreement was achieved at the 24th Meeting of the ASEAN Senior Officials on the Environment held in Indonesia, which is part of an annual series of ASEAN meetings that discuss issues of environmental cooperation among all 10 ASEAN member states. At the meeting, Singapore also emphasized the need for continual swift response actions by Indonesia to prevent the number of hotspots in the region from increasing, said the NEA. The Indonesian authorities also provided updates on their efforts to respond to fires in Sumatra and Kalimantan that cause trans-boundary haze.

The NEA said during the 15th Meeting of the Sub-Regional Ministerial Steering Committee on Trans boundary Haze Pollution ( MSC) held in Malaysia in July, the environment ministers of the five MSC countries agreed to recommend adopting the Haze Monitoring System as a joint haze monitoring system among MSC countries with digitized land-use maps and concession maps of fire- prone areas that cause trans boundary haze to be shared on a government-to-government basis, subject to the ASEAN leaders' approval at the ASEAN Leaders' Summit in October. The number of hotspots in Indonesia which is monitored by Singapore had increased nearly six-fold from 86 last Saturday to 488 on Monday. This had made the city-state worry another round of haze. Singapore had experienced serious hazy days in June, pushing up its air pollution index to a record high. It was led by the trans boundary haze resulting from forest fires in neighboring Indonesia.

The most important one, the components of our economy show that we are moving to investments from services,” Balisacan added, noting that growth in manufacturing has outpaced services.

For Butuan, Philippines’ largest mall operator and developer SM Prime Holdings Inc. is building a community mall with a sky garden and outdoor dining options, Go said. To date, SM Prime has four shopping malls in Mindanao: SM City Davao, SM City Cagayan de Oro, SM City General Santos and SM Lanang Premier with a total gross floor area of 430,000 square meters (sqm.)

Allado said contractors, architects, engineers, interior designers, property d e v e l op e r s , s p e c i f i e r s , consultants and consumers are also invited to witness the world-class construction exhibit. “ This show is about supporting the local industry. It is taking us a step closer to truly making the regions construction industr y globally competitive,” he said. Teolulo Pasawa, city director of the Department of Trade and Industry welcomed the holding of the exhibition citing that indeed Davao City is a construction market. He said Davao City offers a lot of opportunities for the construction industry with many factors ranging from being one of the competitive

whom lost their homes, get through a difficult time. We also want to thank the officials of Laguna for supporting our project,” said NGCP’s Chief Administrative Officer Anthony L. Almeda. Prior to the relief operation, NGCP’s Biñan and Sucat substations, and South Luzon Regional Office were flooded due to the torrential rains that started on August

17 and lasted for five days. Despite the weather disturbance, NGCP’s operations remained normal and its facilities intact which can be attributed to the antiflooding system installed in all major NGCP offices and substations. NGCP is a privately owned corporation in charge of operating, maintaining, and developing the country’s

power grid. It transmits highvoltage electricity through “power superhighways” that include the interconnected system of transmission lines, towers, substations, and related assets. As a corporation with public service orientation, NGCP supports the communities hosting its transmission facilities, which it considers as a true partner in nation-building.

Philippine economy bested Southeast Asian neighbors and grew at the same pace as China in April to June. Indonesia grew by 5.8 percent; Thailand, 2.8 percent; Vietnam, 5 percent; Singapore, 3.8 percent; Malaysia, 4.3 percent; Hong Kong 3.3 percent; Japan, 2.6 percent; Taiwan, 2.5 percent; and South Korea, 2.3 percent. B e n j a m i n D i o k n o, professor of economics at the University of the Philippines and former Budget Secretary, noted the higher than consensus growth still failed to surprise on the upside. “It is in accordance with expectation that growth will be slower though it

remains strong because of election spending,” he told GMA News Online in a text message. Bede Lovell Gomez, First Metro Investments Corp. assistant vice president and deputy group head of investment advisory, said the slower second quarter output is still above the consensus and above the target of 6 to 7 percent of the government. “This should differentiate us from other markets where growth rate is below 5 percent,” he said. NSCB’s Albert said that second quarter GDP is not bad and could have been better if not for the 0.03 percent clawed out by the

agriculture sector. The s econd half is expected to be slower than the first in the absence of election spending and because of seasonality. “How much slow remains to be seen in the light of damaging typhoons and the ongoing unwinding of hot money which would have impacts on the stock market and the peso,” Diokno said. Purely on seasonality, Gomez said the third quarter output might be slower than 7.5 percent. “It should go back to around 7.5 percent in the fourth quarter or even higher. We are confident this will be sustained for the next three years,” he added.

percent of total revenues for Mindanao, Go said. Mindanao operations account for around four to five percent of the topline and bottomline of SM Prime, which has 47 shopping malls nationwide, Go said. For new malls, SM Prime is looking at the occupancy rate of existing malls and community developments like the opening of business process outsourcing offices. SMIC subsidiar y SM Hotels and Conventions Corp. (SMHCC) is also planning to expand its portfolio in Mindanao. “Our vision in SMX is to be the top of mind venue and meeting facility in key strategic destinations in the Philippines,” said SMX

Convention Specialist Corp. general manager Dexter Deyto. Deyto said the company is looking for opportunities to introduce the convention center in General Santos and Cagayan de Oro. It is also putting up a new convention center in Cebu and Pampanga. To date, SMHCC’s unit SMX Convention Specialist owns and operates SMX Convention Center Manila, SMX Convention Center Davao, SMX Convention Center Taguig, the Megatrade Hall in SM Megamall and the Cebu Trade Hall, making it the largest convention center space provider in the Philippines with 67,709 sqm. in gross foor area and 35,223

sqm. in gross leasing area. SMX Convention Center is a beneficiar y to the MICE (meetings, incentives, conventions and exhibits) campaign of the Department of Tourism that targets to bring more multinational firms’ events to the Philippines. “A MICE delegate has an expenditure that is six to seven times more than a leisure traveler. This generates sales for hotels, restaurants, shops, transportation providers and tour operators,” Deyto said. Aside from malls and conventions centers, SMIC is also into retail (SM Retail Inc.), condominium development (SM Development Corp.) and banking (BDO Unibank Inc. and China Banking Corp.).

Govt agency sets up online reviewer for scholarship exam By Ma. Elena A. Talingdan of S&T Media Service

GRADUATING elementary students wishing to bag a scholarship slot at the Philippine Science High School (PSHS) will now have better chances of passing the National Competitive Examinations (NCE) of the country’s premier science secondary school. This opportunity is made possible through the Department of Science and Technology (DOST)’s latest initiative called the PSHS online reviewer.

The free reviewer, which is now available online, is designed to help aspiring scholars to prepare better for the PSHS NCE. It can be accessed at pshsreviewer. org and pshsreviewer.dost.gov.ph. According to Dr. Rowena Cristina L. Guevara, executive director of the DOST’s Philippine Council for Industry, Energy and Emerging Technology Research and Development of the (PCIEERD), the online reviewer is the official practice test provided by the PSHS.

Marivic Magsayo, a resident, said she heard three gunshots thundered in their quiet neighborhood. “I peeped outside my window and saw a gunman wearing a motorcycle (face) mask standing over a body slumped to the ground,” Magsayo said Magsayo said the gunman fired five more shots at the fallen Solijon before leaving the crime scene. “The gunman was cursing at Solijon’s body before he and his companion left the scene,” she said. Chief Insp. Lauren said they found eight empty caliber .45 shells and a slug from the crime scene. Joseph Ben Deveza, media safety officer in Mindanao of the National Union of Journalists of the Philippines (NUJP), said that if Solijon’s death is proven to be work-related, he would be the 159th journalist killed

He said that impunity reigns in some parts of Mindanao due to the presence of warlords and intense political rivalries, making it “a dangerous place for community journalists to work.” Rudy Catubay, station manager of DXLS-Love Radio, which is an affiliate of the Manila Broadcasting Corp., said he believes the killing of the 47-year old Solijon was work-related. Catubay said the murdered radio commentator was known for his hardhitting commentaries, and he believed that his killers “were among those who were hit by Solijon’s fiery criticisms.” He said Love Radio station employed Solijon since 2007 and he hosted Sandiganan which airs five times a week. “Solijon did not spare anyone. Town mayors and other local officials were all subjected to his fiery criticisms,” Catubay said. Death threats He said Solijon has been receiving numerous threats by phone and letters apparently from those angered by his commentaries. Solijon’s wife Mely confirmed that her husband had been receiving death threats that became more glaring before the May 13 national midterm and local elections. Mely said the threats prompted Solijon to very cautious and on his 47th birthday last June 30, her husband thanked God for letting him lived that much. She recalled that somebody even poured a can of paint remover on the hood of her husband’s car while it was parked downtown, apparently out of anger at him. “I have received calls from female callers warning that my husband will not see Christmas. I guess they made good their threat,” Mely said. Mely said hours after Solijon died last Thursday night, she received a phone call asking if her husband has been confirmed dead. Solijon was survived by his 44-year-old wife Mely

from page 10 expectations of elected officials are high and an official becomes a “bad lemon” if he fails to deliver. “For congress members to strictly stick to crafting laws and ignore the pleas of their constituents for assistance is the epitome of callousness and is very un-Filipino. Thus, congress members as lawmakers include in the yearly appropriation law the PDAF. They craft the appropriation law which contains PDAF. Therefore when a congress member identifies a proposed project, it is not unlawful as it is in fact in accordance with the appropriation law,” Almario wrote. He said there are allocations in local government units that are similar to PDAF, “for the same reason.” He cited the Sanggunian or the local legislative bodies that pass appropriation ordinances allocating funds for themselves to allow them to address the needs of their constituents. “The names may vary from PDAF to Lingap to whatever term the local council may deem appropriate,” he said. PDAF-type funds But there are also LGUs that do not allocate PDAF-type funds for councilors “but they give their local chief executives a whopping amount so they can draw funding for their proposed projects against the allocation of their executives,” he added. He said PDAF as a “ready source of funds” is not limited only to Congress or the LGUs, the Sanggunian but the Office of the President as well as other local chief executives.

He cited the Presidential Social Fund (PSF) while the governors and mayors, as executives, have their Intelligence Fund (IF). Critics have referred to the Presidential fund as “presidential pork.” “Both fund sources have much greater and wider latitude of authorized utilization compared to PDAF which follows a specified menu.” He said the PSF and the IF are just two of what he called the “PDAF-like sources of funds “ of the executive. “Add to these the crisis intervention fund, peace and order fund, gender and development fund, scholarship fund, anti-illegal drugs funds and many more which are all included in the appropriation laws or ordinances as lump sum appropriations to give the executive unlimited discretion and leeway in the implementation of projects and programs under these funds. Rightly so, as they are the executives or implementors.” “Great equalizer” Almario enumerated stepby-step the process in allocating the PDAF until it reaches the intended beneficiaries. In the case of the overpriced “multipurpose tents” for instance, he had earlier told MindaNews that they merely received the tents which their constituents requested, that they had nothing to do with the procurement of the tents and that he assumed that the rules on accountability were followed by the implementing agency. In a text message to MindaNews on August 25, Almario said he had no information on PZA Trading “since it was DA that implemented the procurement process from advertising to delivery. Our participation was to transmit to DA the (request for) items needed by our constituents and to receive the items from DA and to distribute these items to our constituents,” he said, adding, he “assumed all transactions were scrutinized by DA’s resident auditor.” Originally named Countrywide Development Fund, the PDAF, according to Almario, is a “great equalizer as it equals the unequal.” “Every district gets the same amount regardless if the district’s congressman is a great debater or a silent member. In fact, even a district whose congressman passed away or is imprisoned still gets the same amount,” he said. He also noted that PDAF projects are usually those not covered for funding by the national agencies, citing as example that the Department of Public Works and Highways “may overlay millions worth of asphalt along national roads, but it cannot provide funds for a footbridge in a remote barangay even if it’s a matter of life and death to the residents therein.”

Gladis Naduma said in her post. Melan Uayan Garley said: “Ok ra man na as of now .G a protektahan gyud ni PNoy si baboy kay unsaon nalang sa isang iglap patyon man gyud na si Napoles dili na maka reveal sa iyang mga kauban hayahay kaau cla, after mang gawas tanan baho POBRE pa na sa ok-ok bartolina ang padunggan ana.” Napoles, the central figure in the multi-billion pork barrel scam, surrendered to President Aquino Wednesday night after hiding for several days after a court in Makati City ordered her arrest for the alleged kidnapping of her aide who had turned whistleblower. Accompanied by her lawyer, Napoles surrendered hours after President Aquino dangled a P10-million bounty for her arrest. Presidential spokesperson Edwin Lacierda, citing security risks, said President Aquino went to Camp Crame to ensure that Napoles will be safe in the custody of the Philippine National Police. As of 8:30 p.m. Thursday, Napoles had yet to be remanded to the Makati City jail. Her lawyers have opposed the transfer by filing a seven-page motion reasoning that Napoles’ life would be in great danger if she would be transferred to the Makati City prison jail.

City Administrator Roy Raagas would have submitted his resignation but the five councillors reportedly convinced him to stay to serve as a conduit to the Office of City Mayor. The five city councilors led by minority floor leader Teodulfo Lao included veteran legislator Councilor Roger Abaday, City Councilor Zaldy Ocon, and new comer City Councilors Enrico Salcedo, and Candy Darimbang, all city councilors who ran under the Liberal Party who help lead Moreno’s mayoral victory in the May 14, 2013 local

Team said Napoles “should speak up to help stop corruption.” In Kidapawan City, John Pagaduan, an IT worker said Local Governments Secretary Mar Roxas is talking about having Napoles as state witness. “She will be a state witness? Charge her for plunder first!” Journalists who usually are reserved in their personal opinions on the issues they cover took to the social networks to voice their disgust over what they said was Aquino and Malacanang’s alleged special treatment of Napoles. Jason Phillip Gutierrez of Agence France Press posted his Facebook wall : “Pumunta sa White Space (gallery), tapos sa Heritage Park bago pumunta ng palasyo. Nag sightseeing pa, bago dinala sa palace. Hinarap ng at least apat na officials bukod kay Presidente, at inescort pa ni presidente sa Crame. Wala nga namang special treatment. Klaro.” Gutierrez continued, “Kung may concern sa safety, why did the President escort her to Crame? Pumayag ang PSG? Tanong lang.” BenCy Gerona Ellorin of Cagayan de Oro, now working as editor at the Cebu Daily News noted in in Cebu said President Aquino did not show any interest when a cargo ship collided with a passenger ferry of 2Go Company that claimed 80 lives and rescuers still searching for 50 persons still missing. “Pero kay Janet Napoles,

In the words of Lacierda, si Presidente pa mismo nag inspect sa room — kung safe ba — where Napoles spent the night,” Ellorin said. Journalists and other netizens also took their rage to their Twitter accounts. Chino Gaston, reporter of GMA 7, tweeted “ Hanggang sa pagkakaaresto privileged pa rin.” Nonoy Espina, editor of TV 5 Interaksyon also tweeted “Mas bagay ata ‘to na headline: ‘Napoles is safe… and so are we’ – Malacanang.” “Security escort ni Napoles si PNoy. Ato President pa ang advance security detail to sweep Crame,” Espina continued his tweets. Aquiles Zonio, correspondent of the Philippine Daily Inquirer posted : P-Noy is demeaning the presidency, serving as security escort for the Queen of Pork Barrel scam.” Danilo Agoncillo posted a caricature in his tweet showing President Aquino and Napoles in the iconic pose of Leonardo D’Caprio and Kate Winslett in the 1997 movie “Titanic.” “What a rescue! Damsel in distress,” Agoncillo said in his tweet. (Froilan Gallardo with reports from Roel Catoto / MindaNews)

rating the frustrations of local Liberal Party mates in the way Moreno was running the affairs of the city government. “Moreno deceived us since what he was doing as City Mayor was contrary to what he promised during the election period. We now found out that Moreno was turning everything at City Hall into haywire that even the collection of garbage became bothersome to Cagayanons,” Ocon said. City Councilor Candy Darimbang, the lone woman in the Liberal Party ticket that won a seat on the City Council, said that the city councillors decided to abandon Moreno and would, instead, act as fiscalizers of the incumbent administration. In a talked with Mindanao Daily News, Darimbang said that the five councillors were already fed up with Moreno’s antics

as she described the city mayor as “anti-poor.” Darimbang also questioned Moreno’s motive for insisting that the city government was “cash trapped” and that the P 1 billion left by former City Mayor Vicente Emano was lost. “That is not true. The P 1 billion budget left by Emano for the General Fund, Special Education Fund, and Tr ust Fund were all there,” Darimbang added. “We were wondering why Moreno kept on saying that the P 1 billion was lost. What does Moreno intend to do? Is he conditioning the minds of the Cagayanons to keep the P 1 billion for his own,” Darimban asked. She said that the five city councillors have severed ties with Moreno to ser ve as a watchdog of the people of Cagayan de

Oro City. “We will not allow any move of the mayor that would imperil the interest of the Cagayanons,” Darimbang added. Darimbang said the city council also questioned the hiring of Moreno of almost all personnel from the provincial capitol who were holding sensitive positions such as the City Accountant, City Treasurer, City Engineers, and the City’s Social Welfare and Development. The city councilors also doubt the motive of Moreno’s creation of the various city committees that overlapped the functions of the city council. Darimbang cited the creation of the city’s finance committee whose members were previously working at the provincial capitol in Misamis Oriental who were known as Moreno’s “keepers.”

Gonzalo said that Solijon, who was known for his hard-hitting commentaries on local politics and the illegal drugs trade, was the 35th victim of summary killings in the city since January 2013, of which 11 happened this month. Cris Dapo, DxLS radio technician, told MindaNews that Solijon was lately tackling controversies about the use of the local intelligence fund. Solijon was with fellow radio reporters Dario Navales and Alvin Suan and a female staff of DXLS for a night out at Purok 1 in Barangay Buruun moments before he was killed at around 10:30 p.m. Solijon was crossing the street to his parked car when he was attacked, the NUJP said. Atty. Alex Cabornay, head of the National Bureau of Investigation in Iligan City, said that one suspect was wearing a motorcycle face mask while his companion wore a hood to conceal their faces. The portion of the road where Solijon was killed was dark, Cabornay said, adding that witnesses saw the suspects rounding twice the place, a sari-sari store, where the reporters were getting together before the attack. Mayor Cesar Regencia condemned the killing of Solijon, lashing at the local police force for its apparent inability to address the series of killings in the city. City councilor Providencio Abragan Jr., a lawyer, met

with local radio reporters Friday and assured them that the city council will work to help resolve the case of Solijon. “I am ashamed that the killing of a media worker happened in this city,” Abragan said. (Violeta M. Gloria/ MindaNews)

working on the project in March 2012. He said Surigao City’s mainland barangays, which comprise 33 barangays, cover at least 27,000 hectares. Surigao City has a total of 54 barangays, 21 of them located in the different islands. Atty. Paquito Rosal, regional technical division chief for the Land Management Services of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources, said the surveyed 41 barangays fall under the Cadastral Category B standard survey. This means that we don’t conduct lots survey but the establishment of all control points, which shall be used as reference for future surveys for the purpose of determining the actual land area and establishing of the actual boundaries for electoral exercises, he explained. Rosal said that for disputed areas, land boundaries could be altered, stressing that under Republic Act 7160 or the Local Government Code of the Philippines, the Sangguniang Panlungsod has the authority to settle barangay boundary disputes. He told MindaNews that “it should be the barangay that shall identify the boundary of their land area and not a surveyor.” Rosal noted that boundary conflict arises because of the creation of new towns or barangays. He said that the Internal Revenue Allotment (IRA) plays a big part in the occurrence of boundary disputes. They want to retain their old area for the purpose of the IRA, he added.

to end the “tug-of-war” among the different barangay officials. “Like in the case of Barangay Luna and Barangay Bonifacio, these two barangays are claiming a portion of Kilometer 6 wherein a gas station was set up,” Recabo said. She said that several entrepreneurs have expressed dismay to the boundary dispute in these two barangays as they have to pay dues to both. MindaNews learned that a number of sand and gravel businesses operate in these two villages. Aside from barangays Luna and Bonifacio, barangays Sabang and Rizal also have a boundary conflict. Recabo said the city council will have to pass a resolution authorizing Mayor Ernesto Matugas to approve the recently completed city boundaries and index map. In a previous session, Councilor Leonilo Aldonza had asked for the availability of the technical description of the land boundaries of the city’s barangays. The technical description of 41 barangays have been recently completed, said geodetic Engr. Christopher Esparrago, who started
