A DAY before the Cotabato City bombing, Sittie Rajabia and her husband, Elson, were joking after hearing a United States government advisory of an Al Qaeda threat. “Nagbibiruan pa nga kami nung lumabas sa news na may advisory. Sabi ni Elson tiyak may sasabog na naman nito (We were joking when the news of the advisory came out. Elson thought a bomb might go off next) ” she told Davao Today. “Hindi namin inakala na magkakatotoo nga at sa Cotabato pa! (We never thought that it would happen and it happened here in Cotabato!)” Rajabia, a mother of two and a former development broadcaster now taking up law studies, left her house at 4:20 pm that day, ten minutes before the bomb exploded in Sinsuat See minutes, page 11

Pag-IBIG Fund Butuan introduces new programs

B

UTUAN CITY – Pag-IBIG Funds new housing loan program on retail financing offers a maximum loan value of PhP6 million pesos with an interest rate of 7.985% per annum, which shall be repriced periodically depending on the chosen repricing period.

The loan is payable within 30 years, but not to exceed 70 years old at the time of loan maturity. The interest of our calamity loan was also reduced from 10.75% to 5.95% per annum payable in two years. Pag-IBIG requires Membership Identification (MID) Numbers for all transcations. This is part of our transition to an enhanced system that will make our services even faster and more efficient for employers and their employees alike. Hence, each time the employers remit the contributions and loan payments of their employees, the employees’

names and MID Numbers must be indicated on the remittance forms. Without the MID, processing of transactions may have delays. MIDNumbers of employees must be indicated when submitting the following Pag-IBIG Fund forms: Members Contribution Remittance Form, Short Term Loan/Multi-Purpose Loan Applications, Monthly Remittance Schedule for MultiPurpose Loans. Employees without MID are advised to secure a Registration Tracking Number (RTN) at our Pag-IBIG Branches or via internet through our e-services

DENR-13 releases sea turtle at undisclosed resort

BUCAS GRANDE, Surigao del Norte-- The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), led by Regional Executive Director Nonito M. Tamayo, has released on August 1 two endangered sea turtles including a juvenile at a secluded beach resort here and reminded the keepers to conserve marine

mammals. Tamayo identified the sea turtles as belonging to hawksbill (Eretmochelysimbricata) and green sea turtle (Cheloniamydas) species. They had been caged for several months before their condition was spotted by DENR officials. The green sea turtle which

measured about 50 centimeters (cm) by 45 cm is a juvenile while the adult hawksbill turtle measured about 100 cm shell length and 62 cm wide. A DENR tag number had been placed at the right flap of the hawksbill. “While it is understood that most resort operators desire to adopt rare sea turtle as pet for tourist attraction the DENR, however, remains consistent with its policy on pawikan conservation by virtue of Executive Order No. 542, signed on 26 June 1979,” RED Tamayo said. He added, “we want to ensure the survival and growth of the country's remaining marine turtle populations," he added. The release was witnessed by Regional Technical Director Mario Eludo of the Protected Areas Wildlife and Coastal Zone Resources, RoniloSalac of the Ecosystem Research and Development Services,

Atty. PaquitoRosal of the Land Management Services, PENROs and CENROs and senior staff. Tamayo has warned the people particularly operators of resorts along the coastal areas to refrain from catching giant sea turtles. Hawksbill turtles are normally found near reefs rich in sponges which they feed on. They avoid deep waters, preferring coastlines where sponges are abundant and where sandy nesting sites are within reach. Not particularly large compared with other sea turtles, hawksbills grow up to about 45 inches (114 cm) in shell length and 150 pounds (68 kilograms) in weight. Like other sea turtles, hawksbills migrate from feeding sites to nesting grounds, normally on tropical beaches. Mating occurs every two to three years and normally takes place in shallow waters. The

nesting procedure begins when the turtles leave the sea to choose an area to lay their eggs. A pit is dug in the sand, filled with eggs, and then covered. At this stage, the turtles retreat to the sea, leaving the eggs, which will hatch in about 60 days. The most dangerous time of the lives of the turtles comes when hatchlings make the journey from their nests to the sea. Crabs and gulls prey on young turtles during this short scamper. Like many sea turtles, hawksbills are an endangered species. Hawksbill eggs are still eaten around the world despite the turtle’s international protected status, and they are often killed for their flesh and for their shells. These graceful sea turtles are also threatened by accidental capture in fishing nets. (FEA/Eric F. Gallego,DENR-13/PIA13/asf)

DSWD-13 Chief:

TESDA is community’s future By Robert E. Roperos

BUTUAN CITY – “The Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) is the future of every community,” said Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD)Caraga Director Minda B. Brigoli during the Orientation on Team Balikatan Rescue in Emergency (TeamBRE) held here recently. Project TeamBRE is a strategy which will develop and enhance resiliency of the vulnerable sectors, particularly the fisher folks during and after disaster. It also strengthens partnerships with other local stakeholder in establishing mechanism for effective disaster management program through the TeamBRE volunteers. Director Brigoli stressed that with TESDA continuously providing technical-vocational skills and development to the people in different communities, the country’s economic growth have developed. She also said that with the convergence of all government agencies in Caraga, the region is now out from the poorest regions in the country based on the second quarter report of the National Statistical Coordination Board (NSCB). For this, the DSWD regional chief emphasized that TESDA must be recognized and with President Benigno S. Aquino III mentioning the agency in his opening statement of his fourth State of the Nation Address (SONA) on Monday, July 22, “it is but fitting for the agencyto receive such recognition from the country’s Chief Executive. Brigoli further explained that by providing technicalvocational skills and development to the community, the constituents of every community are empowered to help uplift the economy of their communities and the country, in general. “Ang TESDA ngayon ay isa sa kinakapitan ng ating pamahalaan upang maitawid ang ating mga kababayan sa kahirapan” (At present, TESDA is one of the agencies where the government is dependent to achieve poverty alleviation), Dr. Brigoli said. Furthermore, the official said livelihood opportunities can be easily reached thru the trainings provided by TESDA since the agency is preparing every individual for this purpose. Brigoli also underscored the strong working relationship of DSWD-Caraga and TESDACaraga, saying that this happened because the two government agencies shared a common vision towards achieving poverty alleviation in the country. “Our partnership with TESDA-Caraga is always going stronger and stronger, as we shared the same vision to provide interventions towards achieving the mandate of the national government specifically poverty alleviation,” Brigoli stated.

DENR, 9 other agencies unite in new convergence strategy on poverty reduction MANILA, Aug 8 (PNA) -- The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) is converging with nine other government agencies to beef up government efforts to improve the quality of life of the marginalized sectors of the society. The convergence strategy was formalized with the recent signing of a memorandum of understanding (MOU) by officials of the DENR and the Departments of Agriculture (DA), Agrarian Reform (DAR), Health ( D O H ) , t h e I nt e r i o r and Local Government (DILG), Labor and Employment (DOLE), Science and Te chnolog y ( D O ST ) , S o c i a l We l fare and Development (DSWD), Tourism (DOT), and Trade and Industry (DTI). According to DENR Secretar y R amon J. P. Paje, the agreement provides a holistic approach as it involves almost all line agencies to ensure a more effective and efficient implementation of programs on poverty alleviation, job creation, food security, and healthy and safe environment. Paje said the MOU was consistent with the existing National Convergence Initiative for Sustainable Rural Development among the DENR, DA and DAR, which focuses on shared responsibility in sustainable development of natural resources and communities in the country’s rural areas. “The MOU is an expanded convergence that ensures our programs and projects, particularly

those for communitybased sustainable livelihood and enterprise d e vel opme nt , w i l l b e complementary, harmonized and therefore more inclusive to a wide swath of society,” he clarified. The MOU specifically identifies priority and high-impact programs and projects from each of the 10 agencies that have common interests and objectives, particularly those aimed at alleviating poverty in municipalities. The National Greening Program – which seeks to plant trees on 1.5 million hectares for six years ending in 2016 – was identified as the DENR’s main contribution to the convergence, with its various activities as support to poverty alleviation, food security and climate change mitigation. Among these activities are site identification and development, seedling pro duc tion and plant propagation, adoption of environment-friendly technologies, provision of planting materials and technical assistance, and conduct of monitoring and evaluation. O t h e r g ov e r n m e nt projects identified in the new convergence program include the Agri-Pinoy Program of the DA, the Program Beneficiaries Development of DAR, the Enhancing Economic Growth and Competitiveness of Local Government Units Program of the DILG, and the Integrated Livelihood Program towards Community Enterprise Development of the DOLE. T h e D OL E i s a l s o tasked to assist trainees

of its attached agency, the Technical Education and Skills Development Training (TESDA), in creating community-based sustainable livelihood and enterprises. Other contributing programs are the DOST’s Small Enterprises Technology Upgrading Program; the Sustainable Livelihood Program, particularly through the Micro-Enter pris e Development Track or the Employment Facilitation Track of the DSWD; and the DTI’s National Industry Cluster Capacity Enhancement Project. The MOU directs the DOH, through the Food and Drug Administration, to ensure the safety, efficacy, purity and quality

of all regulated products through monitoring of all covered establishments. The DOT, on the other hand, is directed to develop training modules and conduct training programs to upgrade the quality, competence and excellence in the delivery of tourism services. The MOU is the latest initiative of the Executive Branch to implement President Benigno S Aquino III’s “social contract” with Filipinos to reduce poverty incidence by building capacities and creating opportunities, while recognizing the vital role of farms and community-based enterprises in contributing to food security and economic growth.

Granvia Suites offers peaceful living away from the bustles of the main city

N

O doubt Cagayan de Oro City is steadily growing and fast becoming a dominant metropolis in the country. With the increase in economic activities and the growth of real estate developments, more migration into the city is expected to follow in the next few years. Based on sociological studies, migrations of future permanent settlers and travelers will, unless pro-acted on, result in social concerns as traffic congestion, crowding at certain areas and noise that any typical city experiences. Ev e n t h i s e a r l y, it would be essential for one to entertain the idea of living in a home far from the bustles of the city yet near enough for one to practice one’s profession or to undertake one’s daily trade, noted Michele D. Chiu, an executive of a property developer. Chiu said this idea brought to fore the concept of developing Granvia Suites in upper Carmen district by longtime Mindanao developer Johndorf Ventures Corp. (JVC). “Granvia Suites is just 15 kilometers away from the city center yet its residents can already live in the comforts of what a home should be,” pointed out Chiu, sales and marketing manager of JVC. 40 percent JVC started to build Granvia Suites last year and finished the construction just recently.

While the market in Cagayan de Oro and the rest of Mindanao is still used to the traditional house and lot packages, Chiu noted that condominium living is beginning to be accepted, especially with the advantages seen in Manila and Cebu. “ Ha v i n g a c o n d o minium is also a worthy investment as the owners could later on opt to lease it out to transients, migrants and new families among the locales,” Chiu pointed out.

SouthCot to undertake reforestation to prevent flooding GENERAL SANTOS CIT Y (MindaNews/07 August) – Environment personnel in South Cotabato province are planning to launch a massive reforestation program to rehabilitate the area’s denuded forests and critical watersheds. Siegfred Flaviano, acting Provincial Environment Management Office chief, said they are currently drawing up a feasibility study for the reforestation program, which was earlier identified by the local government as a long–term strategy to resolve the flooding problems in parts of the province. He assigned their office’s forest and land management division to lead the study and come up with a project profile for the program. “Our main priority is the headwaters of our major rivers and other upland areas in the province,” he said in a radio interview. As directed by South Cotabato Gov. Daisy Avance-Fuentes, Flaviano said the reforestation activities will begin in the upland areas and will eventually go down to the lowlands or downstream areas. Citing initial details of the program, he said they are planning to reforest the river headwaters, watersheds and other upland areas through the development

of tree plantations. He said they will tap landowners and residents within their target areas as the main implementers of the program. “We initially hire people to do the reforestation work for each of the identified plantation areas,” Flaviano said. He said the hired implementers will be assigned to monitor and take care of the planted trees and eventually manage the tree plantations. The reforestation program will initially cover the headwaters and watershed of the critical Allah River, which traverses six municipalities in the province. The river, which traces its headwaters to the upland portions of T’boli and Lake Sebu towns, also passes through five localities in Sultan Kudarat and eventually drains at the Liguasan Marsh and the Rio Grande de Mindanao. Allah River’s headwaters and watershed are within the Allah Valley Protected Landscape, which covers a total of 102,350 hectares in four municipalities in South Cotabato and Sultan Kudarat provinces. The area is currently part of the National Integrated Protected Area System as provided for by Republic Act 7586. (Allen V. Estabillo / MindaNews)

Waste, garbage disposal still a big problem Local government units are somehow less serious in enforcing the Ecological Solid Waste Management Act or RA 9003. This was the recent comment of a senator. The same should be the common stand of lawmakers, and Malacanang should take to task all LGU officials to strictly implement this law because failure to do so would endanger not only the environment but also more lives and livelihood in their respective communities. The role of LGUs in Solid Waste Management expressly stated in Section 10 of RA 9003, provides that LGUs shall be primarily responsible for the implementation and enforcement of the provisions that includes segregation and collection of solid waste. Very few LGUs however, are faithfully complying with the law. Segregation of wastes at the barangay level specifically for biodegradable, compostable and reusable wastes are nowhere seriously

done because their municipalities or cities are not efficient in the garbage collection of non-recyclable materials and special wastes. Inefficient garbage coll ectio n and solid waste management can lead to serious complications such as clogging of canals, waterways and drainage connections. In extreme cases, these can lead to environmental tragedies such as when typhoons occur in the country. Critics say high government authorities should conduct environmental audit of the LGUs’ role to see whether environmental laws, including the Solid Waste Management Act, are properly and effectively complied with. Lead implementing agencies should also assess regularly whether the LGUs are strictly enforcing these laws. Are guidelines and targets for solid waste avoidance and volume reduction properly implemented and understood by LGUs? How many in the community are aware that

Editorial

measures for reducing the source of wastes and minimization of garbage problem include composting, recycling, re-use, recovery, green charcoal process, and others? What is the present state of our dumpsites and collection facilities? The law provides that wastes and garbage should be disposed in appropriate and environmentally sound solid waste management facilities. Are our garbage dumpsites environmentally sound? Proper segregation, collection, transport, storage, treatment and disposal of solid waste should follow the best environmental practice in ecological waste management which exclude incineration. But our dumpsites are still burning and emitting obnoxious smell. Worse, people are still allowed to build their houses and shanties very near the dumpsites. Should these situation continue unabated, the primary purpose of the law which is to ensure the protection of the public health and environment is defeated.

Bombing as politics

Cagayan de Oro City Mayor Oscar Moreno should better be careful because the July 26 bombing that claimed eight innocent lives and left several others wounded might serve as the wick that may cause his political downfall. What’s my reason for saying this? Arrests of suspects in Monday’s powerful bomb explosion in Cotabato City had already been effected a day after the incident. But up to this point, Moreno and the city’s police force are still facing a blank wall in their investigation of the dastardly act that occurred on the last day of a national physician’s convention. Cotabato City Mayor Japal Guiani Jr. seems to be telling Moreno and the local police that if you want to solve a dastardly act such as the bombing on July 26 they should do it the way he did with regard Monday’s bombing in his city’s central district where innocent lives were likewise claimed. Have you realized the difference between the two bombing incidents? The one in Cotabato City was perpetrated with Guiani and his sister, lawyer Cynthia Guiani Sayadi, the city’s administrator, as the tar-

A deeper view Jesse E.L. Bacon II get. The Cagayan de Oro City’s bombing could be said at this point that it was perpetrated simply to sow terror. But here lies the problem. Simply because Moreno’s person was not the target of his city’s bombing incident he is not exerting the same effort, he is not showing the same passion Guiani had exerted and shown resulting in the immediate solution to the bombing that had him and his sister as main targets. Moreno’s lukewarm attitude may not sit well with his constituents. Its long term effect will surely cause some degree of diminution on his political standing before his own people. His inability to solve with dispatch the bombing incident in his city like what Guiani had accomplished will definitely not be viewed with favor by

the Cagay-anons. Guiani’s success in immediately solving the bombing incident in his city will now be the yardstick in determining how such type of incident should be solved. And based on the Guiani yardstick, Moreno shall be judged and in this regard his actions leave so much to be desired. Moreno should not forget that the mandate reposed on him by his constituents call for him to ensure that Cagayan de Oro is peaceful. The mandate that in the first place he sought calls that criminals and criminality should not have a place in the city. He should not fail the people who reposed on him such mandate. Resurrection of the Marcoses As an opinion writer, I have noticed lately the deliberate effort at rewriting the

country’s history by resurrecting the Marcos family name as heroes and not the villains they are known to be up to this point. The effort is clearly meant to pave the way for the late dictator’s son and namesake to have a crack at the presidency in the 2016 presidential race. While it is anybody’s right to seek any elective office like the presidency, those interested should not just possess the needed qualifications, they should be above any suspicion much more involved in crimes against the people. Let us not rewrite history. Let us admit that what the elder Marcos had done was a crime against the Filipino people – he stifled freedom and democracy resulting in deaths of a good number of our compatriots and he looted the coffers of the government. The young Marcos is as guilty as the father since he and the rest of the members of the Marcos family partook, participated, benefited and enjoyed what the elder Marcos did. No member of the Marcos family could be forgiven for the acts of the elder Marcos. They are all See politics, page 11

Greetings from:

Islamic City Mayor of Marawi Boycott Facebook now!!! LIFE’S INSPIRATIONS: “… Because you did not serve the Lord your God joyfully and gladly in the time of prosperity, therefore in hunger and thirst, in nakedness and dire poverty, you will serve the enemies the Lord sends against you…” (Deuteronomy 28:47-48, the Holy Bible). -oooSEX AND FACEBOOK: I guess it’s time to boycott Facebook, the social networking site that has become the social life of millions around the world. Why? Because it is now being used

Kakampi mo ang batas Atty. Batas Mauricio wantonly for pornography. As of now, every time Facebook is opened, pictures depicting various sex scenes, posted in the names of unsuspecting Facebook users, hog the computer screen and entice the users to view the video in its entirety.

I am sure children who are Facebook users are also seeing this, and their parents who are most of the time not computer-savvy or knowledgeable about the Internet maybe unaware of what is happening. So, if they are not properly guided, these

children will surely get the wrong message, considering their very young minds, and considering their evident incapacity to distinguish what is right and what is wrong. If left unchecked, Facebook could create a generation of sexually-disoriented and dysfunctional children, who would later on grow to become sexually-disoriented and dysfunctional, and therefore, trouble-making, citizens, or people who love only themselves and money, godless and depraved. See FACEBOOK, page 11

Going through hot water

THINK a minute. “A tea bag isn’t worth much until it’s been through some hot water.” There’s a saying in boxing: “Everybody’s got a plan—until they’ve been hit!” Sooner or later, life is going to hit and knock you down. Whether you get back up or not is your choice. Almost all people’s successes are built on their former failures. A very successful man was asked if he had ever failed. He answered: “Only in life.” The fact is, even after we’ve been knocked down we can still use our past mistakes and failures to build a bridge to our success. You know that you’re

Think A Minute Jhan Tiafau Hurst the only one who can kill your dream by quitting. Remember that just falling in the water is not what drowns you; it’s staying down there that does. Just like kites fly high because the wind pushes against them, so problems that oppose you can actually help you succeed, if you choose to believe and use them

that way. There was a man who was the only survivor from a shipwreck. He drifted to an uninhabited island where he built a hut for his shelter. One evening after he returned from searching for food, he found his little hut on fire. Early the next morning he awoke to find a ship that had come in

during the night. When the captain came on shore he told the man: “We saw your smoke signal so we came to rescue you.” Everything this man owned and valued in his hut had to be destroyed before he could be saved. Sometimes our Maker even uses our pain to get our attention, so we can learn our most important lessons for living well and wisely. So why not ask Jesus Christ to take charge and lead you through the hot water you’re in now? He’s the only one who can help you change your pain and problems into peace and prosperity for you and your family. The choice is yours. Just Think a Minute.

Corruption and the killing of journalists Statement of the Freedom Fund for Filipino Journalists

JANET Napoles and company may not have merely orchestrated the P10 billion pork barrel scam. It now seems that they could also be among the beneficiaries of the misuse of P728 million in fertilizer funds in 2004. Whistle-blower Benhur Luy has revealed that Napoles and company were involved in the fertilizer scam allegedly masterminded by former Agriculture Undersecretary Jocelyn “Joc Joc” Bolante, the local manifestations of which Tacurong City journalist Marlene Esperat was among the first to expose, and for which she was killed in March, 2005. Esperat thereby joined those other journalists—90 percent of them—who were killed from 1986 onwards for exposing corruption and criminality. Esperat was killed in her home in the presence of her children, on the orders, according to prosecutors, of two officials of the Region XII office of the Department of Agriculture who feared exposure of their involvement in the use of the funds for the 2004 election campaign of then President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo. Both officials have yet to be taken into custody, despite the issuance of an alias warrant against Osmena Montaner and Estrella Sabay last June, after months of delay due to their lawyers’ questioning the legality of the previously issued warrants of arrest, and the slowness of the courts involved. The Freedom Fund for Filipino Journalists (FFFJ) has been at the forefront of the effort to bring the alleged masterminds to court. While the case is by itself crucial to the imperative of ending the culture of impunity that continues to embolden the killers of journalists, an added dimension to it is the need to completely expose the extent to which corruption has not only compromised governance but has also contributed to the persistence of the killings, harassments and threats against journalists and media workers. It is in this context that FFFJ is once again calling the attention of the Department of Justice, the Police and the Courts to bring the case against the suspected masterminds to a credible closure, and for the media and the public to monitor developments in a case that has become key to the citizenry’s understanding and appreciation of the web of corruption and murder that plagues this country and its impact on the media and the safety of journalists. (The PPI is one of the founding members of the FFFJ.)

for Ru r a l E ne r g y (1C A R E) p a r t y l i s t s a id t hat implementing t he IMEM as scheduled will only undermine efforts to address the so-called Mindanao power crisis. Masongsong filed House Resolution 156 on Monday (Aug. 5, 2013) calling for the deferment of the IMEM. Masongsong cited five reasons why the DoE and PEMC should defer IMEM’s implementation: (1) power stakeholders, especially elect ric cooperat ives (ECs) in Mindanao, are not ready for IMEM; (2) Mindanaowons are not ready for an increase in power rates; (3) unresolved issues concerning pricing, c ont r a c t e d c a p a bi l it y against contracted capacity; (4) PEMC has not shown that IMEM is the sufficient and efficient solution to the power curtailment in Mindanao; and (5) lack of awareness on the IMEM. On t he f i rst poi nt , Ma songsong sa id t hat “major stakeholders in the

power sector in Mindanao, including major players in the IMEM, have expressed ‘unpreparedness’ for IMEM. He stressed that ECs were not given ample time to prepare their human capital, computer hardware and software capabilities, a n d c o m mu n i c a t i o n s i n f ra st r uc t u re, a mong others for IMEM. “We must bear in mind, that as primary participants in the system, it is essential that our ECs are equipped to ensure ef fective participation. These requirements could not be met in a short period of time.” The DoE issued D e p a r t m e nt C i rc u l a r No. DC 2013-01-0001 on January 9, 2013 “Directing the Philippine Electricity Market Corporation to Develop and Implement an Interim Electricity Market (IMEM) as a measure to Immediately Address the Power Supply Situation in Mindanao.” O n M ay 2 4 , 2 013, the DoE issued another

department circular (DC 2013-05-008) “Promulgating t he Interim Minda nao Electricity Market (lMEM) Implementing Rules.” In the same DC, Petilla mandated the PEMC to implement the IMEM in September. Masongsong also pointed out that even “the DoE has expressed the likelihood of increasing power rates in Minda nao w it h t he introduction of the IMEM that will ultimately burden electric power consumers.” DoE and PEMC projected t hat IMEM’s i mplementat ion w i l l increase Mindanao electricity rates from P0.03 – P0.72 per kWh. Masongsong pointed out that the National Statistical C o ord i nat ion B o a rd ’s (NSCB) “First Semester Per Capita Poverty Incidence among Families, by Region and Province: 2006, 2009 and 2012”, Mindanao posted 28.6 poverty incidence in 2012, against the national average of 22.3%. There are around 2 million power connections in Mindanao, an estimated 40% of whom are lifeline users. And “many of them are unable to pay their electric bills despite the minima l amount. This is a sad fact. Hence, we require our concerned agencies to take this into consideration.” He also urged the PEMC and DoE to first resolve the issues on pricing, and whether IMEM will use contracted capability or contracted capacity. PEMC has proposed to use the same pricing methodology being used in the WESM wherein the price for all offers made by generating companies

(GenCos) for a pricing interval in the next day will be the highest offered for that interval. “However, we have to note that the inception of the WESM [Wholesale Electricity Spot Market] as a trading platform in June 2006 and its operation in Luzon and the Visayas did not stop electricity price hi kes, which led some groups to speculate that price manipulation is happening in the electricity market. It is, therefore, imperative and I highly recommend for the review and further deliberations on the pricing methodology in order to come up with safety mechanisms to avoid those speculations.” Masongsong also stressed that PEMC has “yet to establish that the IMEM is a sufficient and efficient solution to the problem of load curtailment” the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP) is imposing on ECs in the island. “Is IMEM sufficient or will it enable the electric cooperatives to purchase their day-to-day energy requ i rement s? On t he efficiency issue, the PEMC should demonstrate that the power capacity that will be made available by

embedded generators can be purchased at the lowest price.” Lastly, PEMC has failed in its information campaign about the IMEM. I n a re c e nt m e d i a presentation at the WESM in Ortigas, PEMC admitted that majority of end-user power consumers in Luzon and the Visayas are unaware of the WESM. “Puede ho kaya nating i-request na maipaliwanag ang sistema sa salitang maiintindiha n ng mga ordinaryong mamamayan? Because at t he end of t he d ay, t he u lt i mate power stakeholder is the consuming public or the end users,” he pointed out. Masongsong also urged Congress to do its part in urging DoE and PEMC through legislation to defer IMEM’s implementation. “A s t h e p e o p l e ’s r e p r e s e nt a t i v e s , i t i s incumbent upon Congress to become an avenue for better understanding of key government programs and policies. This humble representation, therefore, reiterates that we need to defer the implementation of the Interim Mindanao Electricity Market or the IMEM in September, for want of further study and evaluation.”

Avenue. The motorcycle she rode decided to take another route. “Mu nt i k nar i n a ko masama dun sa bombing, daanan kasi namin yun sa may Manara Street. Dapat didto mi moagi kaso nagliko ang driver padulong sa Casa Blanca (I was almost included in the list of victims, because that was where we cross near Manara Street. We were supposed to cross there, but the driver turned at Casa Blanca),” she said. Rajabia thought at first it was another one of the bomb explosions that has been happening in the city since July. “Sa una murag wala lang kasi we used to hear bombings dinhi. Pero pagkakita namo nga nag panic na mga pasahero and naa black smoke makita namo less than one kilometer from us, murag lahi na akong na feel (I thought it was one of those bombings we used to hear.

Either Facebook must act now to correct this, or let us all boycott it now. -oooBOYCOTT FACEBOOK NOW!!! This phenomenon has been predicted to happen by the Bible. As we said in an earlier posting or column, “the times are indeed very bad. And yet, we cannot say we were not warned that this kind of surging and widespread criminality would one day happen. We were warned for sure, and in a very specific language yet.

16 former and incumbent officials in Iligan City and a senior official of a private corporation in connection with the alleged irregular, illegal, and unlawful sale of two power plants. The two power plants have combined generation capacity of 98 megawatts. Based on their complaints, Rovira and Sumaoy claimed that the former officials [some were reelected in this year’s May elections] sold the power plants only for P 386,911,780.44 to Conal Holdings Corporation whose original price is pegged roughly at P2.4 billion.

said. He said rewards would be given to those who would provide information leading to the arrest of the suspects in all the bombing incidents. Aquino declined to give further details on the operations to capture the suspects as he noted that authorities are still conducting a deeper investigation into the security situation in the south. “Tinitignan all possible angles... we’ll have a more

thorough brief later this afternoon,” he said. Aquino will meet with the Cabinet security cluster at 2 p.m. Thursday. Asked if there could be a possible spillover of the deadly attacks in major cities in the south, Aquino said, “Meron sila mga aspirational plans. Parati lumalabas sa reports na may intention, Davao in particular, pero umiiwas sila kasi maganda ang seguridad dito (They have aspirational plans. There are

always reports of this intention, Davao in particular, but they are prevened by the strict security here).” Aquino said the Philippine National Police (PNP) has been placed on heightened alert in Mindanao. In the past two weeks, suspected Moro bandits staged four deadly attacks in the south that killed at least ten people and injured scores others. The government is in the homestretch in striking a peace deal with the

MILF which is expected to result in a Bangsamoro Political Entity that will replace the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM). Several groups, including the Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters(BIFF), are apparently hell-bent in derailing the peace talks by launching attacks against authorities and civilians. Aquino assured that culprits in the bombings in Mindanao will be brought to justice. (PNA)

saw passengers panicking and a black smoke less than a kilometer from us, I felt something’s different here),” she recalled. Rajabia said her family immediately called her, “Nagpanic na pod mga tao sa balay kay gipapauli nako dayun. They thought na naapil nako kay bag-o lang gyud ko nakagawas sa balay then may narinig na na malakas na sumabog (My family panicked and told me to come back home. They thought I was hurt because I just got out then they heard the huge explostion).” The explosion happened in a busy intersection in Cotabato City Monday along Sinsuat Avenue fronting Funeraria Villa, killing five instantly, while three others died at the hospital. The bomb also burned four cars, five motorcycles and seven business establishments. “First time ko nakaramdam ng ganung takot sa Cotabato City, kasi maraming casualties at walang pili. Nakakapanindig balahibo sa totoo lang, hindi ko

maintindihan, naiyak ako sa takot.(It was the first time I felt that kind of fear here in Cotabato City, because it happened at random and there were many casualties. I couldn’t understand anything and I just cried),” Rajabia explained. Award-winning indie filmmaker Teng Mangansakan was in Cotabato when the incident happened. He told Davao Today this incident makes people more scared. “I would usually avoid heaps of boxes or garbage in the city for fear that a bomb could be planted there. Now I feel that even with the proximity of cars and vehicles, nobody is safe,” he said. Mangansakan, who had filmed stories of Moro evacuation following military offensives in Central Mindanao, said the bombing “does not do good for a city struggling with an image problem. It also sends a message that the month of Ramadan is nothing sacred as any day of the year, and

that vengeance, hate and evil know no respite.” Cotabato City Mayor Japal Guiani Jr. told reporters his political rivals with “private armed groups” could be the suspect behind this bombing, since his sister, City Administrator Cynthia Guiani-Sayadi, was in one of the vehicles that passed through the street. His sister was not hurt but one of her escorts was killed. But Rajabia said she doubts this. “Sa totoo lang wala masyadong kumakagat sa isyu na sina Mayor ang target.” Pe a c e a d vo c at e Fr. Eliseo ‘Jun’ Mercado of the Oblates Missionary Immaculate posted on his Facebook page Tuesday that he doubted anything will come out of the police investigation. “Government once again tells the people that they would pursue the perpetrators… yet from as far back as I can remember and that is 1965, no one is made responsible for any killing in the place,” his

post said. Mercado echoed the people’s fears saying “People learn to live in their insecurities… knowing fully well that all government can do is for the soundbytes. Now I am hearing it again… Meanwhile people continue to live in their insecurities; grapples with their fears; bury their dead; and make lamentations for their wounds.” Meanwhile, OMI provincial superior Fr. Lauro de Guia in a statement called for people to overcome the tragedy and support calls for peace in the region. “Our efforts to achieve peace in the various aspects of our social and political life must also continue despite this tragic event. We pray to God to grant early recovery to the wounded, consolation to those who lost their loved ones, and courage and wisdom to our traumatized society to be able to find a way forward in our search for authentic peace,” the statement said.

“Consider this: `But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without selfcontrol, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God--- having a form of godliness but denying its power…’ “That is from the Holy Bible, particularly in its 2 Timothy 3:1-5. Now, why are these things happening?

The Bible, in the book of 1 Timothy 4:1, tells us the reason why these things are happening: `The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons…’ -oooDEMONIZED AND DEVILISH: “And, from 2 Timothy 4: 3, there is likewise an explanation as to why some people will become demonized and devilish. It says, many will no longer listen to sound teachings, and would instead hear only the things they would want to hear, from

preachers or teachers who will talk only about what these people will want to hear. “This part of the Bible says: `For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths…’ “And Romans 1 tells us exactly that because people are turning away from the truth, their thinking became futile and their foolish

hearts became darkened, so that God gave them over to `wickedness, evil, greed… depravity… envy, murder, strife, deceit… malice… (becoming) gossips, slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant… boastful… invent(ing) ways of doing evil… disobey(ing) their parents… (with) no understanding, no fidelity, no love, no mercy…’ So I say, let’s boycott Facebook now!!! -oooREACTIONS?

Facing charges for violation of Republic Acts 3019 and 7080 are Mr. Tirso Santillan Jr., executive officer of Conal Holdings Corporation, former Iligan City Mayor Lawrence Ll. Cruz, former Vice Mayor Henry C. Dy, and former councilor and now Vice Mayor Ruderic C. Marzo. Also facing charges before the Office of the Ombudsman-Mindanao was incumbent councilors Providencio A. Abragan Jr., Frederic W. Siao, Marlene L. Young, Simplicio N. Larrazabal III, Ariel P. Anghay, Michelle E. Sweet, Bayani C. Areola, and Roy L. Openiano. Included in the list of respondents was former

councilors Chonilo O. Ruiz, Moises G. Dalisay, Jose L. Zalsos, Bernard Y. Pacaña, and Sangguniang Kabataan representative to the City Council Riza P. Magaro. For his part, Cruz belittled the plunder case filed against them saying it has no strong evidence that can pin them down. The former mayor also said the plunder case was merely manipulated to harass him and his fellow officials in Iligan City, the industrial city of the south.

by greed for power. They are not content that they are back in political power. Since their resurrection back to power, they have apparently felt one of them should be back in Malacanang no less. If this is not greed for power, I don’t know what is. But what my concern is their attempt at rewriting history. They should not be allowed to do this. What would become of us as a people if we allow them to do this? I don’t think we are that naïve to let them do their thing without any resistance. If we fought against the Marcos dictatorship, continuing the fight now is not wrong and in fact the best thing to do.

Biblical reflection

Bro. Edcel L. Closas

Damnation Special Gospel of the day: Luke:24-4653(August9, 2013-Friday) Luke 24:46-53-And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day: And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem: Isaiah 55:8For my thoughts [are] not your thoughts, neither [are] your ways my ways, saith the LORD. The truth is, no one can question God if why Jesus was born in Jerusalem and the words of salvation begins at Jerusalem. This means that God has a prerogative and discretion for His plans. In connection to this, I am very sure that God has a great plan for our country Philippines and because of this reality; we must preserve and protect our nation from scandals and controversies. What have you done for our country? Christ loves his nation Israel by letting himself to be crucified on the cross as ransomed for the salvations of his people. Can you give yourself for the sake of our nation? Can you choose the best politicians during elections? Romans 13:1-2-Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation. Do good for our government and in that way you are doing it for our beloved country: SPONSORED:Neneth - Bobong Balino- Dr. Edith, PhD- Tony Jordan - CDO. St. Peter Calungsod, pray for us!
