GENERAL Santos City––In a bid to enhance the city’s efforts to attract more new businesses and investments, the city council is pushing for the establishment of a satellite or extension office here of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). In a resolution, the council said the SEC should consider opening an office in the area to complement with its thriving economy as seen with the entry of major investments and the continuing expansions of various local industries. It said the move will augur well with the emergence of Region 12 as a major economic player in the country. “With the number of business establishments and investors in the city

continually increasing, this council finds it necessary to put up a SEC satellite or extension office in the area,” the resolution said. SEC, which was established in 1936 by virtue of the Commonwealth Act No. 83 or the Securities Act, is a government agency responsible for the regulation of the securities industry in the country. It was tasked “to curb fraud, manipulation, and excesses in the stock market and protect the investing public from exploitation.” City Councilor Brix Tan, who authored the resolution, said Tuesday the opening of an SEC unit in the city will ease the processing of securities-related requirements and enhance the implementation of See office, page 11

‘People Power’ vs. Moreno? By CRIS DIAZ Executive Editor

CAGAYAN de Oro City––A “people power” to physically remove incumbent Cagayan De Oro City Mayor Oscar Moreno from office is possible, said City Councilor Adrian Barba on Monday. Barba said that the Cagayanons could resort to “people power” only as the last resort to dramatize the people’s loss of confidence against the Moreno administration. He said that the “people power” is an exercise of the people’s ultimate redress against an administration that fails to address the needs of the people. However, Barba cautioned the Cagayanons since the “people power” might be technically inappropriate when there are other means to express the grievances as mandated by the law. He said that the initiative taken by the barangay leaders and their constituents in Cagayan De Oro City to recall Moreno from his office was, at the moment, enough to express the people’s mistrust of the Moreno incumbency. The Local Government

Code of 1991 guaranteed the people’s right to recall the Governor and the Mayor on the ground of loss of confidence, Barba added. He said that the loss of confidence could be an expression of dissatisfaction with the delivery of services such as garbage collection, unaccounted spending for projects without a clear source of funds, transparency and accountability. The Commission on Elections (COMELEC) has required the signature of, at least, 15 percent or 42,000 signatures of the present total registered voters in Cagayan De Oro. Barba said that the signatures would still undergo scrutiny and verification to establish that the signatures were genuine. He said that the initial result of the signature campaign for the recall proceedings against Moreno would be known anytime soon. “It is just lamentable that the City Council has received unconfirmed complaints from barangay residents who were supporting the recall initiative of alleged harassments purportedly undertaken by Moreno’s henchmen,” Barba added.

“If everything fails, the people’s condemnation of The process of the recall people to express their loss proceedings is fastidious, but of confidence against the people power could be the an abominable leadership,” that is the best remedy for incumbent administration. last remedy to dramatize the Barba said.

Obama’s visit reaffirms US-RP’s strong bonds MISAMIS Oriental––“I am one with the Filipino nation in acknowledging US President Barack Obama’s visit to the Philippines as a reaffirmation of continued partnership and stronger bonds between the two countries,” said Provincial Governor Yevgeny Vincente Emano in a statement released on Tuesday. The United States has been a longstanding ally of the Philippines, proof of which, good trading relation and sustainable cooperation which further empowered treaty commitments and

mutual defense agreement, he said. Emano said that Obama’s visit expresses reassurance of US utmost support, not only in advancing defense strategies on maritime security but also in providing humanitarian assistance in times of crisis, specifically pouring aids to some parts of Mindanao which were devastated by typhoons. With Pres. Obama’s re-balancing strategy, may he take sound steps that will create peace and harmony in the Southeast Asia region, including the

Philippines, Emano added. Emano also expressed the optimism that with the comprehensive peace pact agreement on the Bangsa Moro, Pres. Obama will maximize his worldwide influence in channelling a peaceful and friendly Mindanao to the world. However, as we strengthen ties to our ‘brothers’, let us be reminded that we Filipinos embody the sovereignty empowering us to serve the best interest of this country and the people, Emano said.(PNA) CD/PPO

“I join with every Filipino in its joy on the occasion of the canonization of two popes as saints of the Catholic church. The Philippines, which is 90 percent Christians and of which 80 percent belong to the Catholic Church, is particularly blessed for having two (2) popes declared as saints, with whom Filipinos can easily relate with. Pope John XXIII, is known to be the “Champion of Inter Faith Dialogue”. The difficulty of working for such an issue is easy to understand for us – Mindanaoans. I do understand that success in our efforts for interfaith dialogue will definitely make our efforts for Mindanao’s a develop-

ment a lot easier. As an envoy to Turkey during the days of Nazism, St. John Paul XXIII risked his own life to save thousands of Jews, including Hungarians, by issuing them with baptismal certificates so that they could not be persecuted as Jews. When he became Pope, St. Pope John XXIII devoted his term (1958-1963) to the opening of the dialogues and understanding of the Catholic Church with other faiths, which led to the Second Vatican Council where the Catholic Church opened a new page of its church history. These two events of the new saint’s life make Mindanaoans easy to adopt him

as our own. Nowhere in the Philippines is the need for people to help each other despite differences in faith more pronounced than in our island. Mindanao is an island of migrants from other regions of the Philippines. In the case of St. Pope John Paul II, he too was a “migrant” when he became the first non-Italian Pope in four than 400 hundred years. He became a vocal advocate for human rights and spoke out openly against suffering and inequality. He spoke out openly in bringing about political change and became a very influential figure during the Filipinos’ fight to regain their See STATEMENT, page 11

Guv hopes Surigaonons to be disaster-resilient By JENNIFER P. GAITANO

SURIGAO City––“We wanted our people to gain confidence with complementing precaution as we mobilize them towards resilience, to enhance the province’s capacity to predict, prevent, prepare for and recover from any disaster.” This was the direct statement of Surigao del Norte Governor Sol Matugas, during the launching of “Iba na ang Panahon: Science for Safer Communities” campaign held on Tuesday at the Gateway Hotel, this city.

According to Matugas, the natural, climatic and geographic diversity we find in the entire country has also involved every area exposed various types of natural hazards. “For the past few years, we have noted stronger typhoons, extreme flooding, landslides, magnified earthquakes, and even tornadoes have destroyed different areas in the country,” she recalled. The lady gover nor, further emphasized that the risks that every hazard brings, combined with the existing and increasing

population densities, have raised the need for disaster preparedness, mitigation, and adaptation all throughout the country. “With all the things that have happened, we have become all the more conscious that indeed, things are never the way they are before. We have learned our lessons… We should act as early as now. And

let’s always be prepared for preparedness is the key to risk reduction,” stressed Matugas. Also, Matugas expressed her warm thanks and gratitude to the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) through Sec.

dealing with eventualities or disasters. “We are indeed honored to be given the opportunity to learn from this event, the latest information, tools and technologies that will be of much help to aid everyone of us in understanding the possible impacts of every hazard,” remarked Matugas.

War against innocents NO need to explain headlines and daily news! Killing in every part of the world is unceasing! Warriors go and fight prepared to kill and to be killed with no fear.

But what about those innocent lives who are just victims of war atrocities? Are they prepared to die in such a horrible state?

As the Great Powers never stop intervening in these small countries’ affairs, there will be more

How many more of them will be seen floating in the open seas with shattered bodies? And how many more young and old people will be buried innocently at the bottom of the sea, leaving

The proverbial empty bag US President Barack Obama came and left the Philippines giving no commitment to help the country in its territorial row with China over the West Philippine Sea unlike his categorical statement for his country to help Japan in its security concerns internally and externally. When Obama left yesterday the Philippines sadly was left holding the proverbial empty bag, so to speak, because there was nothing that the US President said about his country coming to our succor in the event push comes to shove as far as our conflicting claims over certain territories in what is now known as the South China Sea is concerned. Of course, no right thinking Filipino wishes that this territorial spat will turn ugly. Everyone supports the view that it should be resolved peacefully and diplomatically. But the Philippines being America’s oldest ally in the region with the oldest mutual defense treaty with the latter, the Filipinos, who survey says loves America more than the Americans do, deserve a better treatment. Unfortunately, America again proved beyond doubt that another country is closer to its heart than ours and that is Japan. This is actually déjà vu for us. At the height of WWII when the Philippines needed America most against Japan, American troops in the Philippines were deployed in Australia. The reason given was that

A deeper view Jesse E.L. Bacon II the defense of Australia was paramount over the Philippines which was then under Japanese control. When it was very clear already that Japan’s military might was skidding and that its forces could already be defeated by the Filipino guerrillas who continued the fight here even with the absence of Uncle Sam, American troops led by Gen. Douglas MacArthur came and seized our chance of winning the fight ourselves thus re-establishing our being an American colony again. Today, America through Obama is making it clear again that in the equation of things Japan is far more important than the Philippines hence his unequivocal vow for his country to be by Japan’s side in all its security concerns either from within or from without. But this vow Obama could not make to the Philippines, the oldest ally of America in the region. O b ama’s reluc t ance should serve notice to our leaders for them to just push for an amicable settlement of this row with China. As what President Aquino himself admitted, we don’t have the capability to stand

up against China and he should add that we don’t have a reliable ally also who will be by our side in our spat with China. We should not delude ourselves into thinking that we are more important to America than China. Remember that at the moment China is America’s biggest single creditor. China is likewise America’s biggest single market for its surplus goods and capital. And that country is America’s provider of cheap labor in the manufacture of its outsourced goods. Honestly, I really could not make head or tail why we have this attitude of looking up to America for almost everything when America does not think and look at us the way we do to them. Let us not forget that American behavior toward others is basically and primarily shaped by its capitalist attitude. We all know that in capitalism there is no such thing as down to earth partnership, down to earth relationship thus lasting, nurtured and cared about. Capitalism dictates that the interest for profit is paramount over anything

else thus relationships and partnerships in the capitalist order are always temporary. Relationships and partnerships in a capitalist order always depend on what’sin-it-for-me principle of the profit-oriented paradigm. Dying for a brother or sister much more for others is not the best thing to do in a capitalist order. What one can get from the other is what matters. Personal interest always bears the greater weight over relationships hence its dog-eat-dog or survival-of-the-fittest principles. Obama just affirmed all of the above capitalist principles and attitudes. But such behavior is not alien to all of us. This behavior could be best illustrated by the invasion of the giant malls, giant drugstores and giant enterprises of major provincial markets such as Cagayan de Oro and Davao and in the process displace, put out of business local entrepreneurs. The partnership and relationship that America is propagating and is promoting all over the world in reality sucks because the capitalist order of which it is anchored on is a real sucker. This order is the enemy of what the Lord requires in Micah 6:8 for all of us “to do what is just, to show constant love, and to live in humble fellowship with our Lord.” •• (Reactions at jelbacon@ or at Read me also at www.raconteurme.

Only the US benefited from Obama visit LIFE’S INSPIRATIONS: “… And Hiram sent (Solomon) ships commanded by his own men, sailors who knew the sea. These, with Solomon’s men, sailed to Ophir and brought back four hundred and fifty talents of gold, which they delivered to King Solomon…” (2 Chronicles 8:18, the Holy Bible). -oooONLY THE US BENEFITED FROM OBAMA VISIT: It looks as if only the US benefitted from the two-day state visit of US President Obama on April 28-29, 2014. First, the US managed to squeeze away from the previous perception that it is its duty to defend the Philippines should it be attacked by a foreign country, with Obama’s declaration, widely-publicized in Philippine media, that there is really no commitment from the US to help the Philippines in time of aggression. Then, the US also got a firmer grip on Philippine military camps and bases that it could use as its own, where its soldiers and war armaments could be stationed unmolested

Kakampi mo ang batas Atty. Batas Mauricio indefinitely, courtesy of the lopsided Enhanced Defense Cooperation Agreement (EDCA) that Defense Secretary Voltaire Gazmin and US Ambassador Philip Goldberg hours before Obama landed on Philippine soil. Third, the US also managed to appease China, its creditor in whose favor the American government owes trillions and trillions of dollars in financial obligations, by showing quite strongly, via Obama’s disclaimer of a firm commitment to help the Philippines, that Americans will not really interfere in case of a shooting war between the Philippines and China over the West Philippine Sea. -oooANOTHER WAY OF LOOKNG AT STATE VISIT: I wonder if our government leaders can have any other way of looking at Obama’s

just concluded two-day state visit. Maybe they can explain that the Philippines also benefited from the event. Our column is open to those explanations, if there are any, subject of course to additional questions from us. -oooPRAYING OF THE ROSARY IS BIBLE BASED: Roman Catholic Christians practice the praying of the Holy Rosary, which is something that is balked at by others who believe in Christianity on the argument that praying the Rosary is paganistic in origin. I did some reading on the matter, and indeed, there is nothing in the Holy Bible that says Christians should pray the Rosary, as there is even no mention of the Rosary in any pages of that Book. But when one looks at the mysteries of the Rosary,

one begins to understand that whoever conceived and thought of this prayer, dedicated to Mary, the Virgin Mother of Christ, actually was following the examples of many leaders of the Christian faith, enshrined in many pages of the Bible, where they resort to repeating the history of the Israelites, from their exodus to their arrival at the Promised Land, as a means to strengthen their faith. -oooRECOUNTING STORIES OF GOD’S GREATNESS: Just look at the story of Gideon, in Judges 6 and 7 of the Bible, and you will see what I mean. Before Gideon finally relented to be used as God’s chosen one to deliver his people from the Midianites who were causing them sufferings, he had to recount Israel’s story all over again. This is what is happening when a Roman Catholic prays the Rosary: he is actually repeating a tried and tested tradition of Christian leaders, for he is reminded of the full and entire story of Christ, from the announcement of his birth by See VISIT, page 11

DOLE-Sibugay, PLGU spearhead summer job orientation

Military shells Abu Sayyaf


AMBOANGA CITY – Security forces shelled a jungle encampment of the Abu Sayyaf in the southern province of Sulu forcing militants to flee the assault, officials said on Tuesday.


IPIL, Zamboanga Sibugay – Several students who were hopeful to land a job this summer flocked to the orientation program of the Special Program for the Employment of Students (SPES) spearheaded by the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) together with the Provincial Local Government Unit of Zamboanga Sibugay. The student applicants, who were gathered at the Center Podium of the Provincial Capitol, were grouped into two categories namely, the SPES babies and the Non-SPES babies. Ms. Esther Yukoya, Provincial Human Resource Management Officer (PHRMO) of Sibugay explained that the SPES

babies are those student applicants who enrolled in the program with at least two years of college education or a graduate of any two-year vocational course. The Non-SPES babies, on the other hand, are those students who are on the secondary level. O IC E l a m s a l i h E . Ungad of DOLE-Sibugay said in an interview that the SPES babies have already started in their respective assignments, both in the municipal and provincial areas, on April 14, while the Non-SPES babies have commenced their work on April 21.

Marine Captain Maria Rowena Muyuela, a spokeswoman for the Western Mindanao Command, said the operation against the Abu Sayyaf is continuing in the town of Patikul, a known stronghold of the militant group linked by authorities to al-Qaeda and Jemaah Islamiya. “Due to its proximity to feeder road and trails, it was also being utilized as a staging and rendezvous area before and after their conduct of atrocities like kidnapping. By employing a well directed mortar fires, the Marines were able to force the Abu Sayyaf to abandon the camp and withdraw towards different directions,” she told the regional newspaper Mindanao Examiner. Muyuela said the Monday assault killed a still undetermined number of militants. She said troops have occupied the fortified camp which can accommodate at least 100 people. “The camp has more or less 50 makeshift huts that

can accommodate around 100 bandits. It has a good water source and the whole area is concealed under a thickly vegetated forest. The camp is heavily fortified with bunkers.” “Individual foxholes are strategically emplaced and scattered in different defensive positions. The captured camp was reportedly one of the Abu Sayyaf havens where consolidations, meetings and training of their new and young recruits are being conducted,” she said. Malaysia foils new intrusion attempt by kidnappers Malaysia also reported that it foiled a new attempt by kidnappers from the southern Philippines to intrude into Sabah. Eastern Sabah Security Command Director-General Datuk Mohammad Mentek said the presence of security personnel prevented the intrusion, but it was unclear if the Abu Sayyaf was involved in the latest attempt to cross into the border or if it was connected to the ongoing military operations against

victim. “We have sent our officers to Jolo Island and working closely with the Philippines intelligence for the safe release of the victim,” he said. There was no report about the fate of the Filipina victim. Police in Sulu remain silent over the reports, although the Philippine military said troops are searching for the hostages. Other reports said a Filipina woman, Sugar Diane Buenviaje, is also being held captive by Misaya’s group in Mount Taran in Indanan town. The 33-year old woman, whose family owns Cagayan Enterprises and General Merchandise, was kidnapped in Tawi-Tawi’s Mapun town on February this year. Misaya was also tagged as behind the series of bombings in Sulu in recent years. The Abu Sayyaf was largely blamed for the daring raid on the posh Pulau Sipadan resort in 2000 where they kidnapped 21 people and ransomed them off to Malaysia and Libya for at least $25 million. In November last year, the Abu Sayyaf kidnapped a Taiwanese tourist Chang An Wei, 58, after killing her husband Hsu Li Min, 57, in a daring cross-border raid in Sabah’s Pom Pom Island. The woman was eventually released a month later near the village of Liban in Talipao town in Sulu after paying ransom. The Abu Sayyaf has resorted to ransom kidnappings to raise money for the purchase weapons and fund terror attacks in the Philippines. (Mindanao Examiner)

the militant group in Sulu. The Malaysian news agency Bernama reported that the tight security in Sabah prevented the entry of lawless elements through Semporna where the Abu Sayyaf has kidnapped a Chinese tourist Gao Huayun, 29, and a Filipina resort worker Marcy Dayawan, 40, in Singamata Adventures and Reef Resort. Kuala Lumpur has tagged Abu Sayyaf militants as behind the April 2 raid on the resort. The victims were taken to the Filipino province of Tawi-Tawi before being transferred by boat to the neighboring island of Sulu where they are being held by the Abu Sayyaf under Alhabsi Misaya. “We are serious about this intrusion attempt and we cannot afford to have another incident after the still unresolved kidnapping case at Singamata resort last April 2 occurring,” Mohammad told Bernama. He said security forces were still collecting information about the identities of the gunmen. He said Philippine authorities are closely monitoring the situation and location of the two kidnapped victims. Mohammad, citing intelligence information, said the Chinese victim is in regular communication with her family over ransom deal. The kidnappers were demanding RM36.4 million in ransom for the release of the Shanghai woman. He said Malaysian security officials were sent to Sulu to work closely with the authorities over there for the safe release of the

Slain priest’s colleague piqued over extended probe of Tentorio’s killing



AVAO CITY – Patience is running thin for a colleague of slain Italian missionary Fr. Fausto ‘Pops’ Tentorio after learning that the special investigative body is asking for an extension of their probe beyond the April 30 deadline.

Fr. Peter Geremiah of the Pontificio Istituto Missioni Estere (PIME) said he was informed that the special investigative team (SITU) had sought the extension as it has not gathered enough evidence to find the perpetrators to Tentorio’s death. Tentorio was shot dead last October 17, 2011 inside his parish in the mountainous Arakan town in North Cotabato. He has been a beloved priest to indigenous peoples since the 1980s for his livelihood projects, education and support to campaigns against militarization. Four suspects had been arrested in the killing, but Geremiah and parish workers believed a paramilitary leader and a military official who were involved in the killing should have been investigated. The SITU was formed in October last year, taking off from Pres. Aquino’s Administrative Order 35 issued on November 22, 2012, which created the Inter-Agency Committee on Extralegal Killings, Enforced Disappearances, Torture and other Grave Violations of the Right to

Life, Liberty and Security of Persons. Geremiah said the military’ 57th IB was a no-show when the SITU invited them to an inquiry on May 27, 2013 and did not show up again recently on April 22. The 75-year old priest, who spoke to Davao Today in his visit to Manobo evacuees in Davao City, said his patience has been stretched to a point that he calls this “one last chance” for justice for his colleague. Geremiah said in the last three years, he and other members of the Justice for Pops Movement had spent time and effort to help investigators by producing witnesses and statements. “We persevered and made sure that the witnesses and their families are kept safe while in hiding. Our lawyers spent a lot of time for this,” he said. But he said with three years of fruitless search, “there might be a time we could say this is our last chance.” Geremiah said that aside from the suspects who were the brothers Ato and Sampulan, they want to probe the involvement of Jan Corbala, head of the

paramilitary group Bagani and who was seen talking to the Ato brothers on the day of Tentorio’s killing. The priest also wanted authorities to investigate Special Forces Colonel Mark Espiritu, who was reportedly linked in the delivery of a sack full of firearms two days before Tentorio’s death. Geremiah said that the witnesses had pointed to Espiritu’s possible link to financing and providing a motorcycle to the paramilitary group Bagani. The Commission on Human Rights Region 12 admitted that the probe was not moving because of “weak” leads. “The first investigation had no conclusion. In this probe, we doubt if it could bring anything. I and the lawyers observed the procedures are not clear. We just pray for a miracle, something might happen,” Geremiah said. He said he wanted former 57th IB commanding

officer, General Sedillo to cooperate. “He kept saying that he is friendly with Pops. But I think if he wanted to stop these accusations that they are “berdugo” (butchers), they should surrender the suspects to clear their name. If they had intelligence assets who have reported on this case, let them show it to the public,” Geremiah said. He likened the Tentorio’s death in many other cases in the Philippines, where human rights defenders were killed extrajudicially, and no suspects had been brought to court. More than 1,000 cases of extrajudicial killings were reported by Karapatan since 2001, with most linked to suspected state security forces. “If justice is impossible in court, then the people will continue to ask for justice elsewhere. And we condemn as well this administration for failure to bring justice,” Geremiah said. (

Rebs ask Dvo Mayor Duterte to assist Manobo evacuees COMPOSTELA VALLEY – Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte said that a New People’s Army (NPA) leader had asked him to help the Manobo evacuees who left their homes three weeks ago because of alleged abuses and threats perpetrated by the Army. “Nag hangyo sila nga tabangan naku ang mga taga Talaingod,” (They asked me to help the Talaingod tribe) said Duterte. Duterte said it was a certain “Ka (Comrade) Caloy” of the NPA’s Comval-North Davao South Agusan Sub-regional Command who requested him. He said he had a short tete-a-tete during the release of “prisoner-of-war” Sgt. Jeric Curay who the rebels captured last April 4 and held for 19 days. Duterte earlier said that he will not let the Manobos “die in hunger” and asked the Manobo tribal evacuees to write him officially for help.

He said the Commission on Audit might question him on his spending city funds to help them if there is no official letter to show. He said the COA became stricter with disbursement of funds following public outcry on the misspending and misappropriation of the pork barrel. However, Duterte said he also told Ka Caloy that he would not intervene in the military operation in Talaingod and ask for the pullout of its troops “because it is not within my jurisdiction”. Almost 1,000 Manobo Lumads (or tribes) are now in the compound of the United Church of Christ of the Philippines (UCCP) after they fled their homes in Talaingod, Davao Del Norte. They alleged that Army soldiers in their area conducted aerial bombings See duterte, page 11

Globe Business charts next phase of Philippine internet with robust infrastructure READY TO SUPPORT BANDWIDTH-HEAVY ICT SOLUTIONS FOR LARGE CORPORATIONS, ENTERPRISES

Posts 6% systemwide passenger growth The Philippines’ leading carrier, Cebu Pacific (PSE: CEB) flew 3.74 million passengers from January to March 2014, an increase of about 6% over 3.5 million passengers flown in the same period last year. CEB attributed its passenger growth to increased presence in key markets, strategic seat sales offering the lowest possible fares, and continuous network expansion. “With the recent lift of the EU ban and the FAA Category 1 upgrade for the Philippines, CEB is in a stronger position to explore the possibility of serving even more of our kababayans and travellers in new markets like Guam, Hawaii, and the EU,” said Atty. Jorenz Tañada, CEB VP – Corporate Affairs. CEB achieved notable Q1 2014 passenger growth in several international tourism

and trade markets, such as Indonesia, Japan and China, contributing to foreign tourist arrivals in the country. The airline recently launched a daily service between Manila and Tokyo (Narita) and a four times weekly service from Manila to Nagoya in Japan. For bookings and inquiries, guests can go to or call reservation hotlines (02)7020-888 or (032)2308888. The latest seat sales can also be found on CEB’s official Twitter (@cebupacificair) and Facebook pages. CEB’s 51-strong fleet is comprised of 10 Airbus A319, 30 Airbus A320, 3 Airbus A330 and 8 ATR-72 500 aircraft. It is one of the most modern aircraft fleets in the world. Between 2014 and 2021, Cebu Pacific will take delivery of 11 more brandnew Airbus A320, 30 Airbus A321neo, and 3 Airbus A330 aircraft.

Globe Business was recently recognized for its major role in supporting internet use in the Philippines by The Internet Society of the Philippines (ISOC-PH) during its 20th Internet Anniversary Celebration with the theme, “Your Internet, Your Data.” The enterprise ICT arm of Globe Telecom currently supports the ISOC-PH and the Foundation for Media Alternatives (FMA) in their efforts in working closely with private corporations, government agencies, members of media and the academe on new technologies surrounding the internet, including big data, improve internet access and protect the rights of all its stakeholders – a concept called internet governance. It also deployed robust direct Internet for Web Exchange and LTE for Wi-Fi connectivity throughout the event. A distinguished luminary in the gathering was Globe Business Head of

Research and Development, Technology and Design Benjie Tan, who was responsible for physically connecting the Philippines to the rest of the internetconnected world two decades ago. Twenty years from now, he foresees more affordable internet access for the majority as technology and devices become available to more people, and heavier internet usage driven by relevant applications. “I’m actually hoping for wireless technology to mature so that more Filipinos can have affordable access to internet and enjoy a host of other benefits it can offer.” Also joining Tan in the gathering were acknowledged “fathers” of Philippine internet Dr. Rudy Villarica as well as Dr. Bill Torres. Senior Vice President Nikko Acosta of Globe Business said that “it is with great pride for Globe Business to be recognized for its efforts in supporting Internet use in the Philippines

and to be tapped by ISOCPH and the FMA to be its official internet partner for the our country’s 20th anniversary celebration of being linked to the Internet.” “As in the early days of the internet, we continue to play a relevant role in enabling private corporations, government agencies and non-profit organizations to harness the benefits of the internet for social and economic progress of the Philippines,” he added. Acosta pointed out that with more than 38 million Filipinos exchanging information over the worldwide web, the possibilities in the exchange of data is virtually limitless. “With organizations, businesses and large corporations, the sheer vastness of the internet as we know it can now be tapped with Globe Business as their established ICT partner. “ One major initiative going forward for Philippine internet is the Globe interconnection with the Southeast Asia-Japan Cable (SJC)

System last year, which will enable high capacity data transmission to address growing bandwidth-intensive applications in the country and its neighbors. With commendations from the Philippine government led by Pres. Benigno Aquino, the Globe-SJC interconnection will provide worldclass interconnectivity for the country boasting a bandwidth of 28 terabits per second, providing unmatched local and regional internet data strength. Globe Business is considered as one of the purveyors who invested in the Internet, one of the first Filipino companies that secured IPV4 blocks and its own Autonomous System Number or ASN for commercial use. Since then, the company has been continuously improving its IP connectivity through its many investments in its domestic distribution network, international cable facilities and contracts with local and foreign peering partners.

The Army has belied the accusation. They also held a news conference with the town mayor to debunk the claim, and insisted that it were the activist organizations who helped persuade the tribes to abandon their communities.

the agency’s regulatory initiatives in the area. He said businesses and concerned residents presently need to travel to Davao City, which is a three-hour bus ride from this city, for transactions with the SEC’s extension office. Aside from Davao City, the SEC maintains extension offices in the cities of Zamboanga and Cagayan de Oro. Should an SEC satellite or extension office be established in the city, Tan said it will support the commission’s enforcement and regulatory responsibilities and goals; perform enforcement investigations and inspections through its compliance and enforcement department; and support the work of its company registration and monitoring department. He said the extension unit “shall have the powers and functions provided by the Securities Regulation Code; Presidential Decree No. 902-A, as amended; the Corporation Code; the Investment Houses Law; and the Financing Company Act, among others.

The SEC satellite or extension office’s functions shall include the registration of securities, analysis of every registered security and the evaluation of the financial condition and operations of applicants for security issue, he said. For the purpose of economy and business enhancement, Tan said the SEC extension office will not only reach out and serve the city but also the entire Region 12. “It will expand the agency’s customer base and bring its services closer to more customers by increasing accessibility to them,” he added.

Day Care Center. “When I was informed that our day care was chosen among other benefitting barangays, I cried because finally, our pupils will have a room conducive for learning. I pray that Habitat will be blessed more so they can continue to help others in need,” remarked Santuya. Resource Development Manager of Habitat for Humanity of Davao and Caraga Dolly Santos-Serranillo, said Butuan City Mayor Ferdinand Amante Jr. has also promised to donate concrete paints for the Day Care Centers in the five barangays aside from the ones donated by the Habitat. The team also visited Purok-4 Brgy. Sto. Niño where the 10 G.I. sheets were donated. Brgy. Kagawad Florencio Cagas and Servillano Dumabok, personally thanked the Habitat for this effort. Both also requested the Habitat officials for the provision of more materials for the construction of a small room where parents of school children can do activities for the community. Right after their visit in Brgy. Sto Niño, Butuan Habitat for Humanity president Nora Rama and Serranillo discussed with Brgy. Captain Dennis Felix Gonzaga of Ampayon the status of the Day Care Center of said brgy. The Habitat team donated 10 G.I. sheets for its repair. The team will also provide three gallons of concrete paints (latex) once repair will commence. Moreover, Serranillo, encouraged the Day Care workers of the recipient barangays to have faith and never lose hope in asking for donors, resources for the continued improvement of their respective Day Care Centers. “Ask and it will be given to you. It may not be given immediately but it will be given in God’s will and time. God knows our needs and He will make other people as instrument for us to get what we opted for. I know being a teacher is not an easy task but you’re all here to help students to learn and that is much appreciated,” expressed Serranillo. M e a n w h i l e , B r g y.

power supply to the cement plant today. MindaNews tried contacting PACEMCO management since Saturday but got no reply. Batac said the company apparently has financial problems. He revealed there were talks on PACEMCO’s merger with cement giant La Farge-Holcim but failed. He said PACEMCO has at least 400 regular workers. The union, he added, is ready for talks with management on how to avert a shutdown. The cement company, according to Batac, has two power generators but only one is working, which he said is not enough to run the entire plant. Furthermore, relying on generators would even be more expensive, he pointed out. PACEMCO, the only cement company in Caraga Region, is the only remaining Filipino-owned and controlled cement company. It started its commercial operations in 1967. The company produces 500,000 to 700,000 bags of cement per month. In January 2012, workers staged a protest inside the cement plant because of delayed release of wages, bonuses and other benefits. (Roel N. Catoto / MindaNews)

Land Bank approves loan for Koronadal transport terminal complex KORONADAL City––The Land Bank of the Philippines (LBP) has approved the loan application of the city government here for the construction and development of the city’s P230million modern integrated transport terminal complex. Mayor Peter Miguel said Tuesday they received a notice from the LBP’s monetary board endorsing the financing of the city’s transport terminal project and setting a maximum loanable amount of P560 million for such purpose. But he said the local government has only sought for a P150-million loan or P80 million short of the project’s estimated cost. “The project’s development was set on a phased basis so we decided to lower our loan to P150 million,” the mayor said in a radio interview. Miguel earlier obtained authority from the city council to negotiate a loan with the LBP for the construction of the terminal complex in Purok Yellow Bell, Barangay Sta. Cruz. The city government acquired last year a 5.9-hectare lot worth P40 million for the proposed transport terminal project’s site. Miguel said the decision to reduce the loan amount was also based on the city government’s financial capacity, especially in its repayment. He said they don’t want the local government to get buried in loans and eventually forced to sacrifice .22 revolver, and one base radio. Gille said that the Monday surrender was the fourth batch of mass surrenders in the army’s 4th Infantry Division in the last six months or the surrender of a total of 168 NPA rebels and 171 firearms. According to Gille, the latest batch of NPA rebels who surrendered to the military only showed that the stronghold of the communist movement in the countryside is gradually crumbling. Aside from realizing that the communist movement has exploited them, the NPA rebels, who laid down their arms, also disclosed that they could no longer take the killing of innocent people that oftentimes include their own family members and relatives, Gille added. He said that officials of the municipal town of Loreto, especially the town mayor Dario E. Otaza, a selfconfessed NPA rebel who returned to fold of the law, have been instrumental in the surrender of the rebels last Monday. Gille said that Otaza promised to rid the town of Loreto of insurgents and NPA rebels in coordination with the military and police. CD/4ithIDPAD

its priority programs and services. With the P150-million loan, he said the project’s original plan and design will not be implemented fully or to the detail but assured that such amount is enough for a “fully functional terminal complex.” “We’re now processing the release of the loan to facilitate the project’s implementation,” Miguel said. The mayor said the LBP loan will specifically be utilized to fund the construction of the main terminal building and related structures as well as the installation of the necessary amenities within the complex. Based on a feasibility study prepared by the local government, the transport terminal complex will be operated as an economic enterprise. The facility is projected to generate an annual income of around P13.2 million from the terminal fees alone. It foresees additional revenues of around P1.7 million a year from the rentals or leases of its commercial stalls. The proposed integrated terminal’s main building was designed to cover two hectares and the rest of the site will serve as buffer area or spot for future developments. It will adopt the “green” concept in terms of architecture and facilities, specifically the use of natural ventilation, natural lighting (skylight) and energy-efficient lightemitting diode or LED lights. The facility will also provide adequate green open spaces and the design would ensure the preservation and integration of the land’s existing natural water bodies and features.

Truly ye bear witness that ye allow the deeds of your fathers: for they indeed killed them, and ye build their sepulchres. Therefore also said the wisdom of God, I will send them prophets and apostles, and [some] of them they shall slay and persecute: That the blood of all the prophets, which was shed from the foundation of the world, may be required of this generation; From the blood of Abel unto the blood of Zacharias, which perished between the altar and the temple: verily I say unto you, It shall be required of this generation. Woe unto you, lawyers! for ye have taken away the key of knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye hindered. And as he said these things unto them, the scribes and the Pharisees began to urge [him] vehemently, and to provoke him to speak of many things: Laying wait for him, and seeking to catch something out of his mouth, that they might accuse him: The Pharisees collaborated the acts of crimes committed by their ancestors.
