Deogold Jewels opens at Limketkai Center By MARK FRANCISCO


N online jewelry startup from Ozamiz City opened up its boutique at Limketkai Center yesterday. Deogold Jewels, which initially started in Ozamiz City as an online jewelry shop in 2006, catered mostly to Filipinos living abroad. For almost a decade, the business flourished

and owner Christine Allanic decided to venture into the regional capital of Cagayan de Oro City to introduce her line to local patrons. “I decided to move in to Limketkai because I feel this is the mall where people from all directions in Northern Mindanao flock together and shop,” Allanic said. Her bestsellers are 14k

Italian gold, 21k Saudi gold, Chinese gold and 18 karat. They offer a range of versatile and easy to wear jewelry. Each piece of pure gold, white gold, pure diamonds, gemstones and pearls are presented in their own attractive gift box. Allanic stressed that they also accept made deogold/PAGE 11

The Rising Quest of Deogold Jewels Started on online selling few years ago, DEOGOLD Jewels rose up from its humble beginning to unimaginable success. Being a single proprietorship company registered with the Department of Trade and Industry with Certificate Number 03630873, it slowly caught the attention of the buying public through its fascinating jewelry items that sell Japan, Italy, Chinese, Saudi and Hongkong gold. They also have black, green

and yellow precious stones and diamonds, as well, which come from local and international suppliers. Christine Deo S. Allanic, the owner and woman behind DEOGOLD, told the Mindanao Business Daily that she went through ups and downs in operating this business. At first, she had the difficulty of selling the gold because of the public knowledge that it is highly expensive and only rich and elite people could afford it.

However, through hard work, determination and faith in God, she continued to convince the public about the products until gaining support from relatives and friends. Ms. Allanic also added that this year, the buying public should be excited about its Customer Service Referral Program which gives unlimited commission, income and business opportunities to many people through Multi-Level marketing. quest/PAGE 11

Bringing the teachers to a bigger classroom August 22-28, 2015

Primer Group of Companies immerses public school educators in nature


mparting the significance of environmental conservation has long been acknowledged as an international advocacy. While different non-government organizations encourage every individual to play their roles to realize this cause, there’s no better influencer than educators, themselves. Bearing that in mind, Primer Group of Companies—the company known for the retail and distribution of premium consumer brands in outdoor, urban lifestyle and travel— holds its Nature Class project which gives chosen science public school teachers a firsthand experience of the outdoor environment. As a result, these academicians will be able to relay the importance of eco-consciousness to their students. Through Primer Group’s Center for

Outdoor Recreation and Expedition (C.O.R.E.), the environment education program provides fieldwork opportunities and training from scientific experts and environmental conservationists to the privileged teachers, empowering them to teach their students how to be more appreciative of science and respectful to the balance of nature. Since its inception in 2011, the Nature Class has immersed the educators of Manila in its activities startingwith those who teach in Jose Abad Santos High School, Master Teachers of Manila Science Association, and other science department heads. This time, C.O.R.E. is looking to target Pasay West High School with 10 Science teachers on July 25-26. According to Kristine Villaflor,

Program Manager, the program enables the teachers to give their students more animated lectures on science and raise awareness on environmental protection. “The way to conservation starts with the teachers’ immersion in nature,” Villaflor said. “We targeted the educators as primary audiences because they are the pillars of learning in the academe, the mover of education. They are the key agents in the learning process who are responsible for imparting what they learned to their students and the rest of the school organization.” She added, “The Nature Class facilitates the fostering of appreciation among individuals, giving them the opportunity to have a personal encounter with the environment. Coupling this with a comprehensive knowledge-sharing from experts helps make this initiative more fruitful.” The project is divided into three different activities—Marine Reef Quest (the pilot activity for the program), Bird Quest, and Nature Tree Walks. For the Reef Quest, teachers are encouraged to go snorkeling to expose them to marine life; the birdwatching activity

serves as a platform to give the educators a 360-degree view of the ecology, with emphasis on the preservation of the country’s biodiversity; and the native flora tree walk which familiarizes the teachers with the species of native plants and their botanical uses. As the main proponent of the project, C.O.R.E. organized the overall conceptualization and implementation of the Nature Class, involving the planning, execution, and monitoring of the project components such as the timeline, budget, resources, logistics preparations,

coordination and other administrative arrangements. Likewise, Primer Group took part in funding the project’s sponsorship by distributing premium brands for equipment, tools and other support items to further this thrust. The company also tapped organizations who can send subject experts and resource speakers to the immersion. “This year, we are looking forward to tap more teachers from the Pasay Community in the learning process,” Villaflor pointed out. “There is a need for

educators to in still how their students play huge roles in preserving the environment. When this happens, these students may soon be the next leaders in maintaining nature’s beauty.” Villaflor concluded, “For environmental protection to become a reality, we need to engage our teachers in the process, more particularly those who are teaching in public schools since they have inadequate resources. With this initiative, members of the community may not only learn to appreciate nature but take part in preserving it as well.”

Faculty of Jose Abad Santos High School, Division of Manila participate in the Reef Quest drill before exploring the waters during Primer Group of Companies’ Nature Class activity held last April 14 to 15, 2011 at the Divers Sanctuary, BaunBatangas. The Reef Quest is a coastal adventure that aims to raise environmental awareness among educators.

he UK has to stay in the EU, Barack Obama says. Only then will it be able to continue to play a role on the international stage. More than anything, he has US interests in mind, German TV - commentator Gero Schliess voiced out on screen last night. Indeed, some observers may have rubbed their eyes in disbelief. Please count me in: For the longest time, the Americans had gone out of their way to avoid EU matters. Yet, suddenly US President Barack Obama is concerned about the unity of Europe, urgently advising the British that they should not turn their backs on the “Group of 28.” It remains to be seen whether Obama has done himself any favors with his unusually public plea. Euro-skeptics in Britain have already said they will not tolerate his meddling. The president has repeatedly stated that he cannot imagine a European Union without Great Britain. However, he has never expressed

himself so directly in public. Has Obama become a convinced European? Has he come to appreciate a strong and unified Europe in light of the increasing gravity of global crises? I am pretty sure,that is only part of the truth. The rest is that he is concerned with American interests. During World War II, the British and Americans were comrades in arms. Even after the war, the Americans knew that they could count on the British to join their battles, despite the United Kingdom’s waning power. Now, however, there is a growing fear in Washington that the British are out of the international power game: They are militarily weak and increasingly paralyzed by domestic issues. Hence, they are nowhere near the center of European power, which has now concentrated around Germany and France. Commentator Gero Schliess is very true in saying, that analysis is generally correct.

The budget cuts of the past several years have seriously hindered the ability of the British armed forces to partake in global interventions. Their throttled combat missions against the “Islamic State” (IS) offer final evidence of that. One seeks a British presence in the Ukraine crisis in vain, with Germany now playing the central role there. The same goes for crisis management in Greece. A referendum on the United Kingdom’s EU membership is scheduled to take place before the end of 2017. The risk of a victory by Euro-skeptics is serious. This will demand the full attention of the government, with little energy left over to maintain Great Britain’s role as an indispensable nation. When parliament refused to approve a mandate for the British air force to participate in attacks on IS strongholds in Syria, many in Washington saw it as a definitive departure from that role. If one look back in history, one sees that Great Britain has long

H ave M y Say

been an important intermediary between the United States and Europe. It is a country with which the United States shares many interests. It was after all, the British who raised European awareness for the importance of interventionist foreign and security policy, and who have kept the concept alive. And above all, it has been the British who have consistently argued for the liberalization of European markets and global free-trade in unison with the United States. In that sense, the United Kingdom is indeed the “best partner” that the US could hope for, as Obama has said. doring/PAGE 11

By Micka Victoria

isamis Oriental Provincial G overnor Bambi Emano, though still a bachelor, already has 19 babies under his name. The zeal started when womenfolks in the different barangays of the municipalities of

Misamis Oriental utilize the Bambi Kabs handed over by Gov. Bambi as aid of transportation when about to give birth. Often times, when urgency and time does not permit, these women even give birth inside the Bambi Cab. “G a h a t a g k a m i u g gamay nga ganti gikan

sa regalo paingon sa ilang pampers hangtod sa ilang financial assistance,”states Gov. Bambi. Filled with gratitude and benevolence for all the support Gov. Bambi has given them, the parents of the neonates born named their children after the Father of the Province -Yevgeny Vincente “Bambi”. To these parents, the

Bambi Cabs in their barangays are more than just a vehicle. These Bambi Cabs are intended to serve as sources of empowerment for emergencies, calamities and crisis for people in re m o t e a n d f a r- f lu n g areas in Misamis Oriental, delivering the much needed help in the hinterlands and of the lowly people in the barangays.

SIGHTLESS By Jeaneth J. Molina, MA

The world around I cannot see; So full of solitude and miseries I stumbled and fall in adversity; For life indeed is dry and dreary. What a beautiful world it may seems If only it can be felt and seen; Yet no one dare to help and care; Till the bewildered hope disappear. Suddenly the rainbows appear; Comes the teachers’ love and care Brings hope to a disgusted soul; Life then becomes so meaningful.

“Food for Thought” By VIRGINIA S. MARTICION San Miguel Elementary School

“God will not forgive us if we don’t forgive one another”. (According to Matt, 6:14 – 15) “If you forgive those who hurt you your heavenly father will forgive you. But, if you do not forgive neither will your father will forgive you.” Forgiveness is something God does. It is not rooted in our emotions;

Forgiveness is what God does in the books of heaven when he marks “CANCELLED” over our debt of sin. (Quoted) We are forgiven when he declares us legally acquitted regardless of how we might be feeling at the moment. It is important to realize that forgiveness is something done by God.

Science and Technology Secretary Mario Montejo, who graced the opening rite last August 20, also visited and witnessed the inauguration of the Food Innovation Center at Mindanao University of Science and Technology which is a joint project with the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) 10 and partly through the effort of Rep.

The center, equipped with technologically competitive food processing and packaging facilities, is now open to SMEs which want to improve their products. The following equipment can now be used for a minimal fee – convection drying cabinet/machine, cabinet steamer, cold extrusion machine, continuous band sealing machine, desktop cup sealing machine, flour milling machine, foot operated impulse sealer, stainless steel grain grinding machine, induction sealing

machine, octagonal mixing machine, shrink packaging machine, spray dryer, vacuum fryer, vacuum packaging machine and vertical granular form fill packing machine.

During the occasion, DOST also turned over a P1.102 million check to fund the installation of a CDO building permit management system which will be run by the Mindanao University of Science and Technology (MUST). The system is envisioned to automate the permit processing of the Office of the Building Official in Cagayan de Oro.


Professionalism at Work By BERNADETTE N. CAÑETE Teacher III San Miguel Elementary School San Miguel, Manolo Fortich, Bukidnon

“Every idle word that men shall speak / they shall give account in the day of judgment One feature of a successful career relationship is a good system of values .Since then you have to display attitudes appropriate to your work., because our activities at work are measured and judged. Do not do unto others what you don’t want others to do unto you‘ if you smile to others it would mean a positive response than by being indifferent and arrogant. It would just invite gossip among colleagues. Belittling remarks of some insecure seniors who acts so bossy and autocratic who just want to be felt around are so annoying, even then one is presuming to know everything. Reporting to work on time also helps in performing jobs well and to keep the work place clean and organized. It is one key to make one performs more and improve their work when they are recognized. One should take pride in his work and always bear in mind that you cannot please everyone. One would be jealous of your achievement. Its best then to overcome jealousy, instead allow support and inspiration. Learn to appreciate others have. Be responsible of your actions and decisions. Admit and learn from your mistakes. Be humble and

accept corrections. “there are difficult personalities you will encounter at work. Before making judgment, ask yourself, are they the ones who are difficult or are you the one? Understanding an unpleasant behavior and doing something to improve such behavior is quite a challenge. Another thing also to consider in a workplace is to keep confidential on informations. Especially these personal matters should be kept and not to be shared especially without permission or consent from persons concern. Finally you really don’t have the right to make others miserable of your own personal problems and bad attitude. Gossips and rumors have harmful effects and destructive. It would create chaos. Remember that people who gossip to you surely have gossiped about you. Concentrate on doing your work because you do not know about others personal problem. Mind your own business all the time and it will make you better. “What comes around , goes around”. At work it is best to keep your mouth shut. If you have nothing good to say on others, do not sat anything at all. There is nobody who can stop spreading gossip but you. You cannot CHANGE anything, if you have nothing. SUCCESS is a CHOICE, it is not like happiness it isn’t given. It is made from within.

An Ideal Class Atmosphere By Vivian J. Adajar San Miguel E/S

A productive classroom really depends on how the teacher managed her class . It may not be a really silent or even complete orderly one but rather a classroom where there is focused energy;and all pupils are actively engaged with passion to learn. However it is also very important to realize that it is

ideal to consider the learning space for different learning corners to effectively meet all the pupils need. An ideal classroom atmosphere embraces the idea that all pupils can learn. Finally the teacher should also have enough knowledge to deliver exceptional skills to meet all the pupils need.

The World is Getting Warmer? Why? By VIRGINIA S. MARTICION San Miguel Elementary School

Nowadays it is impossible to read newspapers without learning about an environmental problem. Sometimes the problem seems hopeless. Humans have caused so many devastations to mother earth. Not knowing that even if we are in the right track as we kept using the resources in easy and abusive way, in return had a great effect to the environment, No one is exempted when mother earth reacts. Kaingin system, illegal loggings are long time activities that made mother earth almost barren. Natural resources have been used up. Forests turned into

subdivisions. Where are the trees now? What could possibly happen? There are only few of them left to absorb all those gases emitted from factories and engines. Chlorofluorocarbons, carbon dioxide are harmful gases that are supposed to be absorbed by those trees. These things caused greenhouse effect and the most dangerous problem is the general warming of earth’s climate. These had happened because the ozone layer of the earth has been depleted because of those harmful gases gases. The destruction of the ozone layer made the world gets warmer.

Students with Special Needs, Are they really that “Special?” By Jeaneth J. Molina, MA

Every time I am introduced as a special education teacher of the Visually Impaired students, I hear someone like “You have a place saved for you in heaven. It takes a special person to teach those students.” The compliment is well intended but not deserved. By, “special” these well-meaning acquaintances imply that my students and I are different and unusual. I am not that special because my students are not that special too. The people, parents, students, and even other teachers often view special education as “those classes for students with special needs.” At times even special education teachers get caught up in the mystique of their student’s disabilities, forgetting the uniqueness of EVERY child. Having been in the SPED Program for 11 years as a resource teacher for the visually impaired, I can attest

to the imagination, creativity, and intelligence of these students. They are more similar to regular students than they are different. Not every special ed student is a problem in the class. Most special ed students are as capable of learning as the majority of regular students. But, because of the special ed label, they are perceived as atypical. The greatest gift a teacher could bestow upon special ed students would be to allow them the room to be normal. Identify the similarities between special and regular students, don’t accentuate the differences. Given the opportunity, the special ed students will reveal some aspect of normalcy. Just let them be normal because as Rondel and Kevin would often say “we are normal people, the only thing missing is we are not given the opportunity to see the world.”

Preparing for a science career Establishing a home supportive to children’s learning By MARY JANE G. BARRIO Master Teacher I Lingating Elementary School Lingating ,Baungon, Bukidnon

IF you are preparing for an engineering career, then the academic track of K-12 senior high is ideal for you. Select the STEM strand which stands for science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Subjects in here are pre-calculus, basic calculus, general biology, general physics, general physics and general chemistry. Encourage your kids to be a DOST scholar. Today, there are currently more than 5,000 DOST scholars in the country. But we can certainly increase that number and transform the Philippines

into a Science Nation that is at par with scienceoriented countries such as Switzerland or Iran. The DOST scholarships intend to stimulate and entice talented Filipino youth to pursue lifetime productive careers in science and technology and ensure a steady, adequate supply of qualified S&T human resources which can steer the country towards national progress. They receive P6,000 monthly stipend but they must take physics, applied physics, geology, mining engineering, agriculture and fisheries courses.

By Jenith L. Gacus Teacher I Sta. Cruz Elementary School San Fernando I District

Family is the foundation of every child’s learning. Apparently, prents are his first teachers, siblings are his first classmates and their home is his first classroom. The family have a great influence to the learning development of children. Aside from the fact that it is from his fellow members in the family he shared ideas with, the environment of family will affect their learning abilities, even the child starts to step out from home’s door and goes to school. Example of this is the ability of a home to be supportive to children’s learning. This means that home could establish an environment where children are safe, secured and free to do their activities such as studying in concentration. It could also be

measured through the kind of relationship that a child experience with his family. If it is harmonious, then better. But if there are various disturbing things like occurence of conflict inside the family, this will impact negatively to the learning of the child. He will never have a concentration and this will bother him even he is at school for he has no peace of mind, worries envelope him and worse, fear will arise. His home would never be a “home” then. Home conducive to learning and parental involvement are few key factors in improving academic attainment and achievement among children. Thus, it is parents’ responsibility to build a good learning environment inside their home.

Dissecting education By ELLEN B. YONG Teacher I Patpat Elementary School Patpat, Malitbog, Bukidnon

EDUCATION is the process of facilitating learning. Knowledge, skills, values, beliefs and habits of a group of people (meaning the teachers) are transferred to other people (meaning the students). The students can be kindergarten, elementary, secondary, tertiary, vocational or post-tertiary. As a public school teacher, I represent almost half of the teaching population in the Philippines which belongs to this sector – the K-12 public school system. We are a diverse kind. Even though we belong

to the same curriculum, the specific cultures in our school campuses are so diverse. For example, public schools in urban areas are vastly different from the ones in rural areas. Yet each student has the opportunity to learn basically the same stuff. Thus, each student is afforded the same educational attainment that he or she will carry through in college and ultimately in the adult world. Education i s tra n s fe rre d th ro u g h storytelling, discussion, teaching, training or research.
