I write this piece on a Sunday. After going to church - of course. Every day is different. Every one of us is different. Mondays to Saturdays are usually working days for most all of us. Sunday is a day to unwind, rewind, relax, to breath out and to belch out the heavy burdens we are carrying within the other days. Family day. For many others, Sundays are also working days. People fill up streets, parks, beaches and shopping malls. Eateries, restaurants, discos, and pub houses make good money on Sundays. It is the day of money. The loss of some is the gain of others. Sunday is an enjoyable day. Sure, but it can be also a dangerous day. Sunday is for most o us the day, where people come together with a certain

spirit of freedom and merriment pervades during the whole day. Try to avoid jostling and quarreling one and another and rubbing our shoulders against others! Try it and you will see how difficult it is. Many times, misunderstandings and not necessary discussions destroy this most blessed and holy day. What a pity! Why don’t we look for the plenty advantages that this day offers us? No, instead of this, we lose control of ourselves, our senses, and especially our tongue. We incite, hurt, and divide the people around us and we divide us from them. We use our tongue as the most dangerous part of our body and as an author of destroying, distrusting, and suspicious that brings us to to total isolation and non-

communication. Our tongues force gossip. Instead of praising and giving honor and appreciation we use this day becoming the day of the jackal. You might read this on Monday or Tuesday or any other week day. Remember: Sunday is a day for others, and second only for me. Sunday is the day of the Lord - but not, if and when we might have time left over. Yes, we have time enough to go to church from Monday to Saturday! The not necessary excuses for Mondays till Saturdays don’t count today. We also have other plans for today: Visit or cheer up our family, visit people who have to stay in the hospital. Let’s try to continue reading a book. Join cooking lessons or get back to the old guitar or piano... . Maybe this coming Sunday evening, you utter the groan:

H ave M y Say

Klaus Doring

“That’s it. SAYANG! Tomorrow is Monday again! HAY NAKU!” Maybe you don’t feel well, but the desire to be on service again on Monday was enough reservoirs of strength. And, the satisfaction and the fulfillment is beyond measure. Let’s celebrate this coming Sunday in good mood and with these people around, who wanted to do the same with us. +++ Email: doringklaus@ gmail.com or follow me in Facebook or Twitter or visit www.germanexpatinthephilippines. blogspot.com or www. klausdoringsclassicalmusic.blogspot.com.

September 10, 2015 at Lapad, Laguindingan, Governor Bambi Emano and the Australian Agency for International Development (AUSAID) Officials lead the ribbon cutting ceremony for the formal handover of a ROAD REHAB PROJECT. The project was made possible thru the efforts of the Provincial Engineering Office and the Provincial Road Management Facilities (PRMF). Gov. EMANO, Mr. Geoff King (Australian counsellor for Governance and Humanitarian Project of the DFA) and Mr.GRAHAM JONES (Physical Works manager of the PRMFPhils.) lead the activity. The completed road repair project amounted to Php14,751,629.90 which covers the LaguindinganLourdes-Sungay Provincial roads. The Australian officials are happy to see the project implemented with transparency as what the governor promised. Governor BAMBI EMANO on his part thanked the Agencies and the people behind the PRMF program because it helped a lot in improving the conditions of Misamis Oriental’s provincial roads.

IDC Chairman speaks at the APHF 5 satellite event in Manila During the recently conducted Asia Pacific Housing Forum 5 satellite event in Manila last 3-4 September, IDC Chairman and COO Architect Romolo Nati talked about “Experiences in Green Buildings” under this year’s APHF theme ‘Building Impact’ following four tracks— Building Leadership, Impacting Communities, Building Markets, and Impacting Society. The Asia-Pacific Housing Forum is a biennial conference organized by Habitat for Humanity. This year, the Housing Forum’s fifth iteration, the main event was from 1-4 September in Hong Kong while the Philippines held its satellite event on 3-4 September. The forum brought together housing developers engaged in seeking solutions to lowincome housing issues that make business and economic sense. It aimed to educate and advocate decent housing as a pivotal tool in eradicating the poverty cycle. Experiences in Green Buildings Representing IDC is Arch. Romolo Nati, the chairman and COO of CDO’s premier sustainable condo development, Primavera Residences, who has been invited to the forum as a breakout session speaker. During

his talk, he mentioned how nature is the solution to our current issues on the environment. “There are patterns which can be found behind natural living structures. These processes, when studied and thoroughly examined, can be translated into architectural designs and sustainable solutions. This is known as biomimicry and it has long been in existence, but has simply been overloIoked amid all the new ways of doing things. Making nature as the basis of designing sustainable homes allows IDC to lower energy and resources consumption thereby reducing costs on electricity and water, among others,” Nati said. IDC believes that nature holds the answer to sustainable design. Taking a cue from Mother Nature herself, the company strives to develop selfsustaining, flood-free, and earthquake-resistant structures which are inspired by the beauty and functionality of nature. These green structures fuse human technology with the best that nature has to offer. IDC partners with HFHP Pagatpat Housing Project Last May 2013, Italpinas Development Corporation sealed a partnership with Habitat for Humanity Philippines (HFHP) in support of both

organizations’ mission to bring people together to build homes, communities and hope. “Our advocacies complement each other’s vision and mission of providing eco-friendly, sustainable and affordable houses,” Arch. Nati said. With the signed MOA with HFHP, IDC supported Habitat’s “I Build” Campaign through a donation which funded a specific portion of Habitat’s socialized housing project in Pagatpat, Cagayan de Oro.

Focus Fixed on CDO as Primavera Goes Public Italpinas Development Corporation (IDC), the company behind Cagayan de Oro real estate project Primavera is set for an initial public offering (IPO) in the coming weeks. The IPO is groundbreaking in many ways. To begin with, IDC has staked its future on a road not often taken, embarking on its flagship venture Primavera in Cagayan de Oro - and following it up by announcing an even more ambitious multifunction development around it, Primavera City. The company is also favoring a focus on sustainable design again, a not too common tack among local real estate developers. And in what must be a first in the industry, IDC is unmistakably mestizo,

rooted in a partnership between Italian architect and designer Romolo Valentino Nati, and Filipino-born, Sydneyeducated lawyer Jojo Leviste. With the foundations of its future fixed firmly on the City of Golden Friendship, the IDC IPO will likely be viewed as a barometer of investor confidence in Mindanao, in general; and in Cagayan de Oro, in particular. Of course, it will also be seen as a vote on IDC's seemingly counterintuitive and potentially disruptive business model: target the up-andcoming cities, instead of the already established ones; and offer them elegant yet accessible eco-friendly buildings in safe locations. To Nati and Leviste

though, just getting to the IPO stage is already a victory in itself. Nati reveals that before Primavera even broke ground, many were discouraging them from doing their debut development in Cagayan de Oro, questioning the location, the market and its readiness. But Leviste happily points out that the doubters have since been proven wrong. Units at the first condo tower in Primavera were snapped up predominantly by local residents and by overseas Cagay-anons, putting to rest the notion that the market was not ready for condo living and high-rises. The company’s emphasis on design has also reaped rewards, including Best MixedUse Development in the

Philippines at last year’s International Property Awards in Kuala Lumpur, Highly Commended Condo Development from the Southeast Asia Property Awards in Singapore, and a Special Energy Award at the Design Against the Elements Competition in Quezon City. Going public will mean many things to the different stakeholders in the future of IDC. For the company, the fresh funding will fuel the development of Primavera City, which it forecasts will fasttrack the arrival of locators to the Uptown business district. For Cagayan de Oro, the spotlight on IDC will showcase how the city is both investorfriendly and investmentworthy. For the whole of primavera/PAGE 11

Engaging students to lifelong learnings through leadership By Alvey L. Apao School Paper Adviser San Vicente Annex Elementary School Sinacaban District Misamis Occidental Division

CURBING CHILD WASTING IN SCHOOL: Energy-firm STEAG State Power Inc. (SPI) together with its partners in the private and public sectors, launched recently a 120-day school-based feeding project (SBFP) designed to help curb the prevalence of child wasting in its host communities in Villanueva, Misamis Oriental. “Wasting”, also known as acute malnutrition, develops as a result of recent rapid weight loss or a failure to gain weight. In children, it is assessed by low weight-for-height compared to the WHO international growth standards. About 173 children at the San Martin Elementary School will directly benefit from the feeding activities. The project is part of SPI’s continuing Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program and undertaken in partnership with the LGU, DepEd, PBSP and Oriental Motolite Mktg Corp. photo supplied

In schools, there are student organizations that are created. The purpose of this is for the students to get involved in school activities, aside from performing classroom tasks. Example of this is the student council. To schools, terms used are Supreme Student Council, Central Student Government, Central Student Organization and the like. They serve as leaders in the entire student populace of the school. They are the highest governing body of the entire studentry. Another example is the student publication. This club is composed of pool of writers, photographers and editors. They do the documentation in all activities conducted inside and outside the school premises where the school is involved. Being a student leader

is beneficial to students because the training and experience of it develops their attitude and improve their knowledge. During the term as student leaders, students are given abundant opportunities to groom themselves and learn about the world during their academic life. The student council, for one, is one such opportunity given to students to learn the skills of leadership during high school and college. Leadership skills help students in several ways and are essential for them to deal with their peers during their academic years and in their practical life as well. Learning is not just about the lessons gained in the classrooms, but also in experiences during academic years. One is being a student leader.

In school is a place learning takes place. It is where a student gain knowledge and as well answers to his questions. Thus, it is important to see that a school should be capable enough to sustain each child’s needs. In a Washington State research report, nine characteristics of excellent –performing schools are given. Excellent performing school has a clear and shared focus. It should have set vision, mission and goals. These three serve as direction and determine the targets that should be achieved. This kind of school is also optimistic. Teachers and staff believe that all students can learn and meet high standards. There are chances that it recognizes that some students experienced significant barriers, however these are not seen as insurmountable. In other words, the school offers an ambitious and rigorous course of study.

Effective leadership should also be seen in school administration. Effectivity in instructional and administrative leading is required to successfully implement change processes. Leaders are also proactive and would seek help if needed. It also involves nurturing instructional program and school culture that are conducive to learning and professional growth. Excellent performing schools also execute high levels of collaboration and communication. Strong teamwork among teachers in all levels and other staff should be seen. Each one is involved and linked to one another. These include parents and community members. They joined hand in hand to identify problems and work on solutions. Learners deserves high quality learning for they aim a such. To achieve this, schools as learning institutions should also provide high kind of education.

Both SM and Disney have given, and continue to give, customers happy lifetime memories across all generations. Both brands offer a legacy, a tradition, a way of life—a world that customers identify with and find attachment to. Through this partnership, SM will continue to create these experiences and bring the Disney magic closer to Filipinos. SM has synergized the efforts of all its subsidiaries -- including SM Supermalls, SM Markets, The SM Store, Toy Kingdom, and its lifestyle and entertainment arm, SM Lifestyle Entertainment, Inc. – to produce a complete and one-of-akind Disney experience for its patrons: from the moment they enter the mall to watch a movie, to the time they purchase their favourite snack and Disney merchandise. Patrons can also take their SM Cinema and Disney experience with them home, or wherever they go, through the newly launched Blink app. As a precursor to an already successful association, Disney and SM have worked hand in hand to bring multiple experiential events to the Filipino families such as the recent Avengers Experience in SM North EDSA, wherein guests were treated to life-size characters, avengerthemed games, and a meet and greet with Captain America, Thor, and Black Widow. To officially jumpstart its formal bond as allies, SM and Disney will be launching a “Star Wars Galactic Christmas” to welcome the latest instalment of the movie, “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.” The exhibit will include life-size figurines of characters from the movie, interactive games, and official merchandise from The SM Store and Toy Kingdom. Watch out for the “Star Wars Galactic Christmas” event in select SM Supermalls near you.
