MALACANANG said it remains open to negotiating peace with the communist rebels despite the lull in the talks and continuing violence on the ground in the past several months. In a press briefing in the Malalacang, Deputy Presidential spokesperson Abigail Valte said that the Aquino administration will always be ready to talk peace with the communists as long as there are no preconditions set to restart the discussions. “We’ve always manifested our intent to keep talking to them but, even from the beginning, we have said that there should be no preconditions; we all come to the table with good intentions and with good faith,” Valte told reporters. “Down the line, we have seen incidents that would cast doubt on those intentions, at least coming from the other side. But at this point, as Alex Padilla said, the government is still open to talking to them,” she said. Padilla, the government’s chief negotiator with the rebels, resigned as both sides have not conducted formal talks in the last two years. As the Aquino government has not wavered on talking peace with the communists, Valte said the major issue is sincerity on both

Cynthia Villar pushes gradual yet sure clean-up of Laguna Lake Villar Foundation extends help to sex-for-flight victims - The Villar Foundation, through its managing director, Senator-elect Cynthia Villar, personally handed the sari-sari store showcase to the three Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) who were victims of sex-for-flight. Villar also gave cash assistance to cover the travelling expenses of the OFWs in going back to their respective families. With the ordeal suffered by the three, Villar stressed there is more reason for the coming 16th Congress to push for the creation of the Department of Overseas Filipino Workers (DOFW).

CALAMBA City, Laguna -– Senator-elect Cynthia Villar disclosed that the government has conducted an extensive study to address the problem of flooding in the Laguna lakeshore towns and coastal areas brought about by rise in water level of the Laguna Lake. In an interview with newsmen here after the

main program celebrating national hero Dr. Jose Rizal’s 150th birth anniversary, the newly-elected senator expressed her support to whatever possible alternatives resulting from the studies to ease flooding in the lake’s coastal towns and cities. Of Laguna’s 25 towns, four component cities and

a science and nature city of Los Baños, 19 localities were flooded at the onslaught of the southwest monsoon Habagat last year. Owing to the botched dredging project in the Laguna Lake, Villar said “in the meantime, we have to do whatever little ways to solve the problem on flooding.” VILLAR | page 11

Mamanwa tribesmen lift barricade vs mining firm By Roel Catoto SURIGAO CITY (MindaNews—Members of the Mamanwa tribe have lifted their barricade against the Adnama Mining Resources Inc. (AMRI) after they were paid P10 million in royalty fees. Datu Reynante Buklas, one of the Mamanwa chieftains, said they lifted the blockade at the mine site of AMRI in Barangay Urbiztondo, Claver town in Surigao del Norte after they got their initial royalty payment from the company. AMRI is extracting nickel ore within the 48,679-hectare ancestral domain of the Mamanwas. The company ships the deposit to China. Buklas said they set up last June 15 the barricade at the mining site, paralyzing the operations of the company, for non-payment of royalties due to them. In a text message, he told MindaNews Tuesday night that they got the initial P10 million royalty payment from AMRI last June 19, paving the way for the company to resume operations. AMRI owes the Mamanwas a royalty payment totaling P30 million for the year

2012, he added. But Dulmar M. Raagas, president of the Chamber of Mines in Caraga Region, denied that AMRI failed to pay its royalty obligation to the Mamanwa tribe, the holder of the ancestral domain title. “It’s not the AMRI who failed to meet the obligations. On the contrary, AMRI has fully paid its royalty payments on time. The delay was on the part of the National Commission on Indigenous Peoples (NCIP),” Raagas said. He said he had talked with Omar Abanid, AMRI vice president and mine site manager, about the matter. Raagas said the Mamanwa tribesmen should demand the NCIP to release their royalty fees. MindaNews tried but failed to reach AMRI and NCIP officials for comments. Buklas said it was Abanid and another staff who gave them the check and have it deposited to their bank account last Wednesday. This was not the first time that the Mamanwa tribesmen held a barricade against a mining company in the area. In 2009, Buklas and other chieftains barricaded against Taganito Mining Corp., forc-

ing the company to pay its royalty obligations from 2006 to 2008 amounting to P72.5 million. It was touted as the “largest royalty payment” ever made to a tribe in the country’s mining history. T h re e ot he r m i n i ng companies are operating in Claver— Shen Zhou Mining Group Corp., Platinum Group Mining Corp. and the Taganito High Pressure Acid Leach Nickel Corporation. The latter has just started the commissioning for its hydrometallurgical processing plant in preparation for their commercial production this September. Buklas stressed that if mining companies in the area would not pay their royalty fees, they would not hesitate to hold a barricade against them to stop their operations. “If they don’t want to pay, they should stop mining and get out of our lands,” Buklas said in Surigaonon. Under the Mining Act of 1995 and the Ingenious Peoples Rights Act of 1997, Lumads are entitled to one percent of the gross earnings of mining operations in their ancestral areas.

Stiffer penalties vs. persons using children in the commission of crimes A proposed statute seeking to impose stiffer penalties against persons using and exploiting children in the commission of crimes is now awaiting the President’s signature. T h e prop o s e d “Ac t Strengthening the Juvenile Justice System in the Philippines,” contained in a bicameral conference committee report on HB 6052 and SB 3324, was ratified by both chambers of Congress, beating its June 6th sine die adjournment. Likewise, the measure, which amends Republic Act 9344, otherwise known as the Juvenile Justice and Welfare Act of 2006, provides that the victim and his/her family shall be provided the

appropriate assistance and psychological intervention by the local Social Welfare and Development Office, the DSWD and other concerned agencies. It states that “any person who, in the commission of a crime, makes use, takes advantage of or, profited from the use of children, including any person who abuses his/her authority over the child or who, with abuse of confidence, takes advantage or instigates the commission of the crime, shall be imposed the penalty prescribed by law for the crime committed in its maximum period.” Likewise, “the court may require the parents of a child in conflict with the

law or a youthful offender to undergo counseling or any other activity that, in the opinion of the court, would advance the welfare and best interest of the child.” “Parents,” as used in the measure, shall mean the biological parents, adoptive parents, or individuals who have custody over the child. The bill states, “A child 15 years of age or under at the time of the commission of the offense shall be exempt from criminal liability.” However, the child shall be subjected to an intervention program pursuant to the provisions of the proposed statute. Furthermore, a child above 15 years but below 18

years of age shall likewise be exempt from criminal liability and be subjected to an intervention program unless he or she has acted with discernment, in which case, such child shall be subjected to the appropriate proceedings under the proposed act. However, it added, “The exemption from criminal liability herein established does not include exemption from civil liability, which shall be enforced in accordance with existing laws.” The bill also provides for the transfer of the supervision and control of the Juvenile Justice and Welfare Council from the Department of Justice to the Department of Social Welfare and Development.

Basic health guidelines for Lumads DOT encourages for fiesta to roll in 5 Mindanao provinces home-stay visitors in Tacloban By Walter I. Balane

MALAYBALAY CITY –The implementation of a new order that seeks to improve the delivery of basic health services to Lumads or indigenous peoples will be pilot tested in five areas in Mindanao this year, an official said. On June 3, the Department of Health, Department of the Interior and Local Government and the National Commission on Indigenous Peoples (NCIP) signed Joint Memorandum Circular 2013-01, which was introduced to the provincial government here last Monday. The circular seeks to address inequity in the delivery of health services, discrimination and insensitivity to culture and traditions. Eiler Fernandez, Bukidnon coordinator of the Indigenous Peoples Maternal, Neonatal, Child Health and Nutrition Project (IP MNCHN Project- Mindanao), identified the chosen pilot areas for the new guidelines as Kitaotao in Bukidnon, Dumingag in Zamboanga del Sur, Montevista in Compostella Valley, Carmen in North Cotabato and San Luis in Agusan del Sur. The implementation will involve the Federation of Manobo Matigsalug Tribal Councils, Inc. in Bukidnon, Subanen tribe in Zamboanga del Sur, Dibabawon Mangguangan tribe in Compostella Valley, Arumanen-Manobo

tribe in North Cotabato and the Banwaon and Talaandig tribes in Agusan del Sur. The order noted that health care providers should not see traditional and cultural beliefs and practices as obstacle or barrier to health care service delivery. Culture sensitivity in health is among the guiding principles pushed for the delivery of basic services to indigenous cultural communities and indigenous peoples in the country, according to the guidelines. “It’s a breakthrough in governance for the country’s indigenous peoples,” said Ma. Shirlene Sario, NCIP-Bukidnon provincial officer. Sario, from the Bukidnon tribe here, said the guidelines will improve the delivery of health services to Lumads, “who had been discriminated and neglected.” The circular obliges the agencies to address problems encountered by Lumads in accessing health services. It stressed that indigenous peoples “are considerably vulnerable to inequities in health.” The IP MNCHN ProjectMindanao, which is helping in the implementation of the guidelines in the pilot areas, met with the Provincial Project Management Committee (PPMC) last Monday. The PPMC will oversee the implementation of the guidelines

in the province. Fernandez told MindaNews that they have crafted an action plan– mostly on the project’s information, education, and communication campaign–that will be carried out until December. He added they are hoping to have the project’s implementation plan included in the local government planning for 2014. The circular also placed emphasis on research to identify indigenous traditions and practices that are “safe, beneficial, and scientifically acceptable against those which are “dangerous, detrimental and harmful.” It also provided that health workers, policymakers, and stakeholders should undergo training or orientation on culture sensitivity. There should be preferential access to health care for the “financially and socially disadvantaged” indigenous peoples and cultural communities, the circular said. “They shall be a priority beneficiary in the provision of logistics, technical and financial assistance on health,” it stressed. The circular also stressed the need to respect human rights and gender and development equality towards indigenous peoples. Using the GeographicallyIsolated and Disadvantaged Areas (GIDA) Health Systems Development, DOH data showed

Eating raw vegetables: A ‘healing’ experience VIENTIANE, Laos--A plateful of raw mint, basil leaves, cabbage, sliced string beans and lime was served on my table ahead of the rice noodle (feu) soup that I ordered. Then small bowls of raw bean sprouts and suki, a sauce made of ground peanuts and garlic cooked in oil with a dash of chili powder, arrived before I finally got my noodle soup. It was my first day after arriving in Vientiane a month ago. My colleagues from the Vientiane Times, Pou and Samly, took me to a popular noodle restaurant here. I needed a heavy meal at the time, but eating those raw vegetables piqued my appetite. I already knew though that Lao people eat raw vegetables, either with noodle soup or any dish. Despite my strong desire to try everything they eat here, it was totally different when you’re about to actually do it. Lao people eat raw vegetables and leaves that we don’t usually eat in the Philippines, or at least in Davao City. They wrap dumplings with wild betel leaves aside from cabbage and lettuce. They eat raw morning glory, string beans, broccoli, cauliflower, asparagus, dragon-bone beans and young leaves from mango trees. Some people also eat bergamot leaves, which are often cooked with fried meat or insects. Most Lao dishes contain raw garlic, along with other seasonings.

The first time that I ate them, I was worried that my stomach couldn’t digest all those raw vegetables. I grew up thinking that meat and vegetables have to be cooked for good digestion and to kill the bacteria with the heat. Eating my first raw vegetables with a supposed “delicious” noodle meal was nostalgic—I felt like my mother was staring at me when I was a kid, chiding, “Eat your vegetables!” As they say, “There’s always a first time.” But, after a month, I have been craving for raw vegetables every meal everyday. They really taste so good, especially if dipped in a variety of sauces or mixed as salads. I learned from reading online and health tips from friends in the medical field that eating raw vegetables allows one to consume more nutrients. They said cooking the vegetables destroys vital nutrients and kills enzymes that aid digestion. Most vegetables that Lao people eat without cooking contain folic acid (vitamin B9), which is an important nutrient to prevent many types of cancer, fetal deformities, Alzheimer’s disease, and depression, among other mental conditions. Dr. Somchine Singharaj, head of Food and Drug Division of Vientiane Health Department, said folate, the form of folic acid in food, is essential for the brain and nervous system

to function properly as it is needed for cellular growth and regeneration. The health expert said uncooked vegetables contain higher amounts of folic acid and antioxidants, including lycopene, beta-carotene, and vitamins C and E. Many varieties of tropical fruits that are also rich in antioxidants and folic acid are sold in the streets here at reasonable prices. As a city girl, I badly need detoxification from the processed and junk foods I eat almost every single day for lack of time and creativity. Surely, I will need much folic acid! But, Singharaj said, you cannot get all the folic acid you need from food alone. If you badly lack folic acid and other nutrients, it is important to seek your doctor’s advice. But you may still want to experience Lao food while you can. You will not only regain your sense of wellbeing while enjoying a calm and stress-free life in the countryside, but will also restore or reinforce your good health and youthfulness. With the way people here eat their vegetables, Laos is indeed “a place for healing.” (Lorie Ann Cascaro of MindaNews is a fellow of the FK Norway (Fredskorpset) exchange programme in partnership with the Vietnam Forum of Environmental Journalists. She’s currently in Laos and hosted by the Vientiane Times.)

that towns and provinces considered to have large GIDA and IP population have poor health indicators compared to those that are more accessible. According to the circular, the “physical segregation and socio-cultural exclusion” of IPs contribute to the barriers in their access to health services. “This contributes to IPs relying mainly on their indigenous health systems and practices, some in accordance and some contrary to safe health practices,” it added. The three agencies in the circular also recognized that delivery of basic health services to IPs is complex, as their communities are geographically defined by ancestral domains that straddle several local government units (LGUs). The DILG, according to the guidelines, is mandated to establish a system of cooperation among LGUs to ensure delivery of services to all. In a press release from IP MNCHN, Health Secretary Enrique Ona said that the guidelines “bring meaning to the department’s intentions for the marginalized and underserved people.” “This gives a guarantee that our IPs, who are generally missed out in the provision of services, will be provided health services through these special efforts,” Ona was quoted as saying.

TACLOBAN CITY -- The Department of Tourism (DOT) here is recommending home-stay for visitors who could not be accommodated in hotels here as 95 percent of the establishments are fully-booked in time for the three big festivals slated this weekend. DOT regional director Karina Rosa S. Tiopes said that additional visitors may give them a headache but on a positive note, it simply shows that more people are interested to be part of the fiesta event. Tiopes said that there are already residences that offer home-stay although officially it is not registered with their office. “One thing that our visitors really require is a home away from home. If hotels are not available, then home-stay would be the best option,” she stated. The DOT regional director shared that even with new establishments already operating, still the demand for accommodation facilities is increasing even if it’s not a fiesta season. Tacloban City has 51

establishments with 1, 502 available rooms, data from the DOT revealed. This weekend, the city of Tacloban and the province of Leyte will treat visitors to a “Day of Festivals” starting with the parade and street performances of contingents joining the Pintados-Kasadyaan Festival of Festivals and will culminate in the evening with Sangyaw’s Festival of Lights. Confirmed participants for the Kasadyaan include Hindang, Dulag, La Paz, Tolosa,Tanauan, Alangalang, Abuyog towns while Pintados has Sta. Rita, Palo, Tolosa and three entries from Tacloban City. These festivals are being supported by the province of Leyte and the Pintados Foundation. On the other hand, the Sangyaw will have 15 floats adorned with lights parading at the city’s main thoroughfares depicting the culture of every participating barangays. These fiesta events will usher the celebration of the Tacloban Fiesta slated this June 30 in honor of its patron saint Señor Sto. Niño. (PNA)

AirAsia pulls out from Japanese joint venture KUALA LUMPUR -- Asia’s leading budget airlines, AirAsia, announced the termination of its participation in the Japanese joint venture with All Nippon Airways (ANA) on Tuesday due to “fundamental difference” in management. “The joint venture, created two years ago under the name AirAsia Japan faced many challenges since its launch,” the company said in a statement. “Issues stemmed from a

fundamental difference of opinion between its shareholders on how the business should be managed from cost management to where the domestic business operations should be based,” the statement said. Accoring to AirAsia, the termination comprises an acquisition of the company’s entire shareholding, 49 percent of the paid-up share capital in AirAsia Japan, by ANA Holdings Inc. for 2.45 billion yen (25.1 million U.S.

dollars) . The termination also involves the return of all AirAsia aircraft leased to AirAsia Japan by Nov. 1, 2013 and the payment accrued from the leasing of the aircraft. The joint venture will also unwind the use of the AirAsia brand in its operations, including the name of AirAsia Japan. AirAsia ventured into Japan in the hope of bringing in its successful experience in the Southeast Asian market, but the group CEO

Mobile registration up for unregistered vessels in Eastern Visayas TACLOBAN City--Mobile registration has been made available by the Maritime Industry Authority (MARINA) to fishing and passenger vessels that operate without permits, especially those that are situated in far-flung areas. This July, a five-day mobile registration will be conducted in Kawayan, Biliran that is expected to serve some 300 fishing vessel operators, according to MARINA’s ship building specialist, Engr. Danilo M. Morano. The activity will be undertaken together with the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR), Philippine Coast Guard (PCG), National Telecom-

munications Commission (NTC) and the host local government unit (LGU) from July 22-26. It is a chance for them to avail of the registration that requires a payment of only P250 for vessels with gross tonnage of below three tons under MARINA’s pro-poor program, he added. Registration will be done onsite with streamlined requirements to include only the barangay certification and the payment. The agency is looking at the province of Northern Samar as the next site, based on the initial meeting with BFAR, he further disclosed. MARINA has already covered towns of Abuyog and Albuera in Leyte Culaba

in Biliran and San Vicente in Northern Samar since it started with its mobile registration and legalization program last year. The mobile registration was initiated by the MARINA to reach out to those that are situated in remote areas amid the devolution of the registration to local government units (LGUs) for vessels that are below three tons as mandated under Executive Order 35. Currently, including the regular registration, MARINA has already registered 6,000 vessels in the region, to already include passenger, fishing boats. Of these around 10-20 percent, however, is inactive. (PNA)

Tony Fernandes admitted Tuesday that “it is time for us to part ways.” He said the company will focus its attention on “running a true low cost carrier.” However, Fernandes remained optimistic on the Japanese market. “Despite the cost issues, the AirAsia brand has resonated with Japanese customers and the trend we see for July and August is very strong for all of Japan.

LHASA -- More than 1.18 million tourists visited southwest China’s Lhasa City, capital of Tibet Autonomous Region, between January and May, the local tourism bureau said on Monday. Statistics from the bureau showed that the number of visitors represented an increase of 35.9 percent year on year, while tourism revenue reached 1.03 billion yuan (USD166.7 million), up 49.4 percent from the same period in 2012. Many tourists arrived in the city before traveling to other places of the region, while some visitors chose Qamdo or Nyingchi prefectures as their first destination in Tibet. The bureau said the number will keep rising during summer. Tibet is expecting 12.6 million tourists and 15.8 billion yuan in tourism revenues this year. Tourism has become one of the leading economic growth engines for the region. In 2012, tourist numbers hit 10.58 million, while revenue for the sector reached 12.65 billion yuan. (PNA/Xinhua)

I remain positive on the Japanese market and believe there is tremendous opportunity for a low cost carrier to succeed,” he said. We have not given up on the dream of changing air travel in Japan and look forward to returning to the market,” he added. AirAsia said the operations of its long haul affiliate AirAsia X in Japan would not be interrupted as a part of this termination as AirAsia X will continue.

Hero or villain? Even during the height of the Cold War in the 60’s, the American government never pleaded to friendly or not so friendly governments for the voluntary extradition of one of its citizens hailed by many all over the world as a hero but considered by that government as a criminal and fugitive from their laws. Former National Security Agency (NSA) contractor, a euphemism for agent, Edward Snowden, hogged the international limelight with his expose’ how their agency electronically monitors American and non-American citizens alike in and outside of their country for suspicion they might be engaged in activities inimical to the interest of that nation, a euphemism for terrorism. S n o w d e n’s e x p o s e’ opened the doors to the secrets of the NSA for everyone in and outside of America to see. The American government, expectedly, cried that what their own

A deeper view Jesse E.L. Bacon II security contractor did violated the country’s national security laws, a convenient cry by authoritarian regimes all over the world ones they are exposed for grave rights violations. Now American officials are given a dose of their own medicine when they played the role of super cop denouncing dictators not so friendly to their country. The people’s hero and whistleblower, Snowden, revealed that the NSA with the permission of the concerned entities has been accessing accounts of individuals they suspected of being engaged in activities

detrimental to the security of the United States (US). Accessed by NSA are sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Apple, Google, among others, Snowden had claimed. Since his expose’ his whereabouts was a big puzzle to American officials. That country’s sophisticated intelligence and spying networks was no match to Snowden ability to elude efforts by his government to have him arrested to face trial in the US. The latest reports said he left Hongkong last Sunday on his way to Russia. Speculations have it that from Russia he is proceeding

either to Cuba or Ecuador, the two countries that have so far shown willingness to give him asylum even if it means straining their relationship with America even more. Cuba and Ecuador have not been in the best of terms with America. But as of this writing, no one really knows the exact whereabouts of Snowden. He must have mastered the espionage training he received from the NSA hence his elusiveness from his pursuers. America since becoming the most powerful nation on earth prides in its supposed adherence to the democratic tenets that they proudly claim are enshrined in its Constitution. With Snowden’s expose’ the revered status of America as a democratic and free nation has been shattered to pieces. America is now pictured as no different from dictatorial regimes prying on their citizens for VILLAIN | page 7

Meralco imposes new charges LIFE’S INSPIRATIONS: “… ‘Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against anyone among your people, but love your neighbor as yourself. I am the Lord’…” (Leviticus 19:18, the Holy Bible). -oooMERALCO IMPOSES NEW CHARGES: Literally and figuratively, consumers of Meralco, or the Manila Electric Company, got the shock of their lives during the week ending on June 24, 2013 when they received from it an additional billing statement, requiring them to pay an “additional bill deposit” in thousands of pesos, on top of the already hefty electric bill for the June 24, 2013 bill date. The Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC) seems to have already approved this additional fee.

Kakampi mo ang batas Atty. Batas Mauricio The additional billing statement sent to Meralco’s customers reads: “In our effort to keep you updated… we would like to inform you of the recently implemented Bill Deposit Update Program. The bill deposit is an amount required from customers of distribution utilities as a guarantee for payment of electric bills. It is equivalent to your average monthly electricity bill and earns interest at a rate prescribed by the ERC.” How did Meralco arrive at the amount that

each customer will pay as additional bill deposit? It reviewed the customer’s billing history and got the customer’s average monthly bill for the last 12 months. Then, it subtracted from that average monthly bill the deposit already made by the customer. The resulting difference is the amount that Meralco is requiring its consumers to pay as additional bill deposit. In my case, I am being told to pay P7,891.90. -oooERC APPROVES NEW

MERALCO CHARGES WITHOUT HEARING? The question here is, as a utility company under the jurisdiction of the ERC, Meralco cannot just simply collect anything from its customers without a prior hearing participated in by the sectors affected by any new charges, and without a prior order from the ERC itself. This prior hearing does not appear to have occurred here, and, it also appears, neither was there a prior order from ERC approving the additional bill deposit. I could be wrong here, but then there is nothing in the media about this additional bill deposit, indicating that everything appeared to have been carried out by Meralco in a hush-hush manner. Of course, charges | page 7

Faith without action is dead F resh G ospel of the day: Matthew7:2129(June27, 2013-Thursday) Matthew 7:21-29-Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house

Biblical reflection Bro. Edcel L. Closas upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. And ever y one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds

blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it. This gospel is telling us about the “false teachers of the law” as well as, the “righteous teachers.” This is proven in the gospel of Luke chapter 18:914- the story of a “Pharisee” that claims of his good doings and condemning the “tax collector.” This means that “preaching the words of

God is not a guarantee” to enter into the kingdom of God, but what is important is “living it as an example.” In James2:26-“faith without action is dead.” In Matthew 23:3-All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, [that] observe and do; but do not ye after their works: for they say, and do not.

Globe Telecom bags customer service initiative award Globe Telecom’s Customer Service Innovation on Social Media was declared the winner in the Best in Customer Service Initiative category at the Asia Communication Awards, a testament to the company’s commitment to deliver superior customer experience complementing the company’s modernized network. The award is in recognition of the company’s well-designed and successfully implemented social media strategy geared at significantly changing the way the company provides customer service through Twitter to deliver its promise of providing meaningful and personalized customer service. This enabled the brand to proactively build lasting relationships with customers through their social networks, and allow Globe to differentiate itself from competition by creating an avenue for honest and sincere communication over this uncharted space. Tangible and quantifiable results in terms of the company’s financial performance as well as quantifiable improvements in customer

experience were also taken into consideration in selecting the winner. “At Globe, we are deeply rooted in putting customers at the center of everything we do. We want to be where customers are even if they do not engage us directly. According Trendstream, London-based consultancy firm, the Philippines has the largest number of people who engage in social media activities, relative to the total number of online users in the country in 2011. Globe capitalized on this growing social media trend and took customer service beyond the call center,” said Globe Customer Experience Management Head Chris Lipman. In this customer service category, Globe is the first telecommunications company in the Philippines that transformed its social presence to be the right channel for end-to-end support. Part of the strategy is to hand-pick online specialists with a unique personality, monitoring the company’s official Twitter account 24/7, defining what customer service should be.

With this, Globe achieved its goal to deliver a state-of-the-art customer relationship management system through social media. The company has provided a seamless online communication process that caters to its growing Twitter audience. Through an innovative approach to customer engagement, Globe continues to delight and gain the loyalty of subscribers by means of personalized communication and dedicated customer service. Lipman added, “This award speaks well of the company’s commitment to reach out to customers in a more personal way, where we can be honest about our products and services and ultimately provide seamless engagement. This will further inspire our team to enrich customer care initiatives. We are extremely proud to have won an award in a category contested by our local telco competitor. It also shows that our strategy of giving customers a more personalized approach to customer service versus a corporate machine is being

Kindergarten plus 12 years in basic education; seamless by nature (Grade 1 to Grade 12); geared toward and onward excellence and global competitiveness in the total aspects of a person ---- spell out the track of the K to 12 Program of the Department of Education. This program had invaded the Philippine Educational setting in its second year of implementation this School Year 2013 – 2014 --- the Grade 2 and Grade 8. Series of training and seminars had been conducted prior to the opening of classes for this school year. These undertakings aim to equip and fully load the teachers

Charges... from page 6

Meralco is saying that the additional bill deposit is being made “pursuant to the ERC’s Magna Carta for Residential Electricity Consumers and Distribution Services and Open Access Rules”, but even these rules require a prior hearing before any new bill is to be required. I expect a torrent of dissent to arise from this new Meralco rule, especially now that the water concessionaires of the Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System (MWSS)---Maynilad and Manila Water---are also asking for rate increases among their customers. Indeed, if all these new electric bills and increased water rates are combined in any given month, the already-deprived lives of millions

who are in the frontlines in terms of the program implementation. The Kto12 envisions to produce functionally-literate and value-oriented individuals who can respond to the needs of oneself, family, community, and the world in general. The K to 12 Curriculum promises a new era of educational services ---- competence, skills, quality and value formation among others. According to DepED Secretary, Bro. Armin A. Luistro, FFC, “Ang K to 12 na Kurikulum ay isang kurikulum na pwede nating ipagmalaki saan mang panig ng mundo”. This curriculum encompasses a spiral progression in contents, concepts, activities, and undertakings. This addresses to the total of Filipinos will become even more destitute. -oooNEW INVENTION IGNORED BY GOV’T: What can the customers of Meralco do? If they do not pay what Meralco is ordering them to pay, they maybe deprived of electric service which will complicate all the more their already complicated dayto-day existence. And unless a court intervenes and stops Meralco from effecting the new bill deposit payment, there is really nothing that Meralco customers can do but to pay. But if the customers are jobless and do not have any other means to earn, the next best thing they can do is to simply allow their electric service to be cut off. In a city where temperatures are increasing almost everyday,

development of a person --- an individual who wisely prepares and responsively applies the essentials of lifelong learning in his day to day living and existence. Further, this curriculum is crafted to support the mastery and perfection of every competency necessary to produce the outcomebased education. Kto12 started in 2012 and looking forward to the first implementation of Grade 11 in the Senior High School by year 2016. Kto12 Basic Education Program is a proud “Pinoy” curriculum that mirrors the ingenuity, dedication, commitment, and competence of Filipinos. Let’s take pride of this! Let’s support our very own Kto12 Curriculum! Advertorial and where almost every aspect of life has been made to depend on electric power, having no electricity would mean living in virtual hell. This makes me wonder: how come the government is not encouraging the full production and use of an invention which allows electricity to be produced in a generator set-type machine and which can be installed on a house-to-house basis? There is that machine right now, and can be reproduced inexpensively, but its inventor is hiding because of threats to his life, evidently coming from people or groups not wanting his invention to reach the Filipino masses. -oooREACTIONS?

recognized as best practice.” With an amplified reach through the firm’s social media specialists, Globe is now able to send out an average of 2,500 personalized tweets per day. Current data shows Globe receives an average of 34,000 tweets a month and broadcasts about 40,000 tweets as part of conversations with customers. @Talk2Globe continues to gain followers and is climbing up the ranks as the second most influential Twitter account in the country according to SocialBaker. The Asia Communications Awards give recognition to achievements of telecommunications companies and the individuals in the region responsible for the innovations, achievements and new services that build the industry. Globe also continues to innovate its customer service presence in the social space with the recently launched Globe Community (community. globe.com.ph). The Globe Community is another industry-first and cements the firm’s strategy for collaborative customer service.

they may be plotting to bring their downfall. But what is worse with America as exposed by Snowden is that it is prying not only on its citizens but all the citizens of the world. Yes, they are monitoring through the NSA, if Snowden’s expose’ is to be believed, every human being on earth who they suspect to be working for America’s destruction. Why is America resorting to this tactic that it is strongly denouncing if practiced by other dictatorial regimes? Does this mean that America is now a dictatorial regime also? T he one t h i ng t hat the citizens of the world should understand is that all regimes - democratic, communist, socialist or military dictatorships w i l l a lways pr y on its citizens. But the more p ow e r f u l t h e c ou nt r y is, the more it becomes paranoid about its own security and safety. It is in this regard that the armed apparatus of any state becomes an indispensable component in governance. Have you noticed how America worships their military? Remember during the recently concluded NBA Finals series how they bestowed honor to an American soldier and

those who he represents before the start of the sixt h game in Mi ami? Did you remember also the ball that reelected US President Barack Obama had to attend during his second inaugural which was the Joint Chiefs Ball? The attitude of America when it comes to its s e c ur it y cou ld b e li kened to the attitude of the multi-millionaires in this country. They have become slaves to their own safety thus spend a lot of money to have themselves and their families secured. This is the downside when one country or an individual becomes very wealthy and prosperous while others who comprise the bulk of the populace are consigned to penury and hopelessness. The mighty and the powerful becomes dependent on their ability to overcome their paranoia that someone out there is lurking waiting for the most opportune time to pounce on them by buying their own security. But this is weakness in reality. This is what Snowden succeeded in telling the people about America that its leadership, especially its military, resented so much for being a slap on their faces. •• (Reactions at jelbac on @ y a h o o. c om or at jelbaconii@gmail.com)

Head out to the park or beach or dive into an online community. ARIES (March 21 – April 19) - You reap what you sow, and today shows the world exactly what you’ve sown.

Dark Souls 2 Dark Souls received a bare-bones port to PC in 2012, but once modders had polished it up, it was magnificent. You played as a lonesome undead warrior fighting for his humanity in a macabre and utterly hostile world. Every enemy was a threat, a late block or an ill-timed dodge meant a swift and violent death. The follow-up will hopefully

strive to be just as dark and deeply challenging, The PC version was announced alongside the consoles, so it’ll likely be a little less rushed this time round.

VIRGO (August 23 – September 22) - You should let go of small-scale projects today -- the details start to blend together until you can’t make heads or tails of them! Just relax and try to get into the spirit of the big picture. LIBRA (September 23 – October 22) - If things aren’t going your way today, just try to take a step back from the action and enjoy life’s little pleasures.

SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21) - You feel younger and more playful today, so have fun with whatever comes your way. It’s a really good time for skipping work or school and seeing what the world holds for you, so go for it!

Calls for national manual re-count of votes MALACANANG is leaving it up to the Commission on Elections (Comelec) to decide on calls by some sectors to conduct a national manual audit of votes for the 2013 senatorial race. “There’s a random manual audit that’s being done right now by Comelec. So, we will leave it with the Comelec to decide that matter,” said Presidential

Spokesman Edwin Lacierda in a press briefing on Wednesday. According to political activist Adolfo Paglinawan, a study made by Tanggulang Demokrasya showed an alleged 60-30-10 vote pattern favoring the administration’s Team PNoy senatorial bets in the May 13 polls. He said the results in all

the 16 canvasses revealed a 60 (Team PNoy) - 30 (United Nationalist Alliance) - 10 (independent candidates) vote proportion of votes for senatorial candidates. “There were a synchronized national and local elections. Not all of our local (and national) officials won. Isn’t that proof enough that the elections

were credible?” the Palace Spokesman said. “We would have preferred that we sweep the entire slate, but we did not (accomplish that),” he added. Lacierda said manual recount “is something that we will leave with Comelec to decide on but they are doing what is required under the law.” PNA

C or p ora l Emmanuel Quezon, Privates First Class (PFC) Vernie Padilla, Marteniano Pasigas, Ronald Gura and Donato Estandian, all of the Army’s 60th Infantry Battalion are presently in the hands of the NPAs after they were snatched in a checkpoint mounted by the rebels. Military deputy spokesperson Captain Raul Villegas, of the 10th ID, earlier condemned the act of the NPAs. Villegas said the government troops, who were in civilian attire and without firearms, were on their way to the market to purchase supplies when they were snatched by the rebels. “It is very unfortunate that the NPA bandits took advantage of the situation to achieve their barbarity,” Villegas quoted as saying. Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) spokesperson Brigadier General Domingo Tutaan Jr. also lambasted the NPAs saying “we strongly condemn this act of abducting soldiers who are not in a combat mission. The troops were in civilian attire and without any firearms when they went to the market for peace and development mission with an NGO that would benefit the community.” But two days after, the NPAs through Leoncio Pitao alias Kumander Parago came up with a statement confirming that the five soldiers are in their hands and being held as prisoners of war (POWs). Prague claimed that the act of snatching the soldiers are “meant to punish the AFP units, particularly the Civil Military Operations (CMO) -10th ID under Maj. Jake Obligado for continuing to encroach, settle and conduct psychological warfare and intelligence operations in all villages of Paquibato District.” Parago also warned that the military efforts to rescue the captured soldiers would endanger the lives of the POWs.

which is a 1.7 percent increase from 2006. However, she noted that the Region has sustained the 95 percent employment rate for both 2011 and 2012 which is evident of the expansion of the region’s absorptive capacity for employment. “Pero pag medyo mataas ang poverty incidence and mataas ang rate ng employment, (But, if poverty incidence is slightly high and you also have a high employment rate) it makes you wonder and we have to look into this,” she said, Duterte-Carpio said the planned targets for 2010 and 2011 were not achieved because of identified risks and external shocks including the slow recovery of the U.S. and European economies that limit market options for banana exporters, high oil and energy prices and the selling by the small-scale miners of their gold produce in the black market. “But the Gross Regional Domestic Product levels had been increasing and the Region has rebounded as the top economy among the six regions in Mindanao in 2011,” she said. She admitted that the statistics on increasing poverty incidence is however evident of the non-inclusive growth. But on the other hand, the creation of jobs aimed at reducing poverty is an indication of inclusive growth which is why the two conflicting statistics of increasing poverty incidence and employment growth continue to puzzle economic workers in the region. The RDC XI has identified the remaining challenges in the region in the remaining three years (20132016): slow decline in poverty incidence, unsustained economic growth levels, low productivity levels in almost all major sectors, and slow growth in employment generation.

President Benigno Aquino III scrapped the dredging project following reports that the multi-billion consortium by the foreign firm has put government spending to waste. Reports have it that the excavated and dredged earth and silt that are dumped along the Laguna Lake coastlines are deposited back to the lake bed by run-off waters and erosion. Pending the results of the flood control study on the Laguna Lake, Senatorelect Villar proposed for a cheaper alternative yet the gradual “extrication by backhoes” and excavation process to lessen the impact of flooding in the areas. Although mulling for Senate’s legislative measures related to the Laguna Lake concerns, Villar opted to take a “slowly-but-surely approach” to the problem. She shared her experience on the Las Piñas River rehabilitation project undertaking where they used the backhoe and other equipment to unclog and clean the waterway with the water lilies and revive the river. Villar also told media here their optimism that the Supreme Court will grant their petition to save the Las Piñas bird sanctuary from damage in the wake of the proposed Manila Bay reclamation project.

Youth of the Nation Ang kabatan ay ang Pag –asa ng Bayan. That is a well-known Philippine proverbs said by many mentors and wise people. But have you taken a look around? Have you observed what the younger generations are into? It is clear to see that our youth isn’t going to be good candidate in becoming our nation’s hope. The older generations, mostly, aspired to become a great professionals and leaders in some kind of field. Becoming a great doctor, lawyer, engineer, teacher or businessman is what drives those older generations to success. Im sure they value their time and their talents so much that they’ve put it to good use. Fast forward younger generations appear, ask them what they want to be in the future, they’ll answer you very profound answer. I want to become an “artista” or I want to be a good singer or dancer, or want to be the prettiest model in TV, gusto kong sumikat eh. Although we can partly blame these dull-headed kids for their lack of ambition, the greatest blame must be on the media. What goes in to their brains when they watch TV? They see pretty faced young actress and actresses smiling with all their teeth and gums, pretending to be “happy” because they

The media shown over and over again that if you can sing like a siren, you can be an instant star. Having a good voice guarantees a spot in the limelight. Yeah right,. Look utmost posters or commercials, they’re filled with today’s young singers. But can you see a photo of a youth who fought a corrupt system in the magazines? No. What has happened? If our youth continue to idolize and imitate these “sikat” people. I’m very sure this country has a hopeless youth. Admiring these people isn’t bad, but daydreaming about them all day and idolizing them will only waste your potentials. I hope this land will produce great minds, great leaders, great warriors and great servants, not just great entertainers.

Philippine-Korea pilot project on rural development inaugurated

S

trengthening the relationship of two countries, the Philippines and Korea held its turn-over ceremony of a corn processing complex (CPC) in Malagana, Claveria, Misamis Oriental, which is expected to serve 1,900 hectares of corn area in the municipality and its neighboring towns.

This joint undertaking between the Government of Korea and the Philippines is a pilot project under the Rural Development Project in the Philippines (RDPIP) through the Department of Agriculture (DA) that seeks to bring about economic growth by establishing agro-based industries which will further enhance the efforts in attaining food security and jobs creation in the countryside to alleviate poverty. The establishment of the CPC, which amounted to P 63.86M is part of the government’s goal in producing quality corn and minimizing postharvest losses; thereby providing better income for the farmers. Moreso, the CPC also brings the market closer to the farm which will be of great help to the local farmers who have been spending so much on hauling and transportation expenses in taking their corn produce to its buyers. The CPC can dry as much as 50 to 60 metric tons of shelled corn or 100 metric tons of corn-on-cob per day at 14% moisture content. It also consists of corn sheller, 15 metric ton-capacity

bagging bin, a warehouse, a community center and production equipment such as tractor. DA-Assistant Secretary and National Coordinator for Corn Program Edilberto M. De Luna is grateful for the support of the Korean government to the country’s efforts in attaining rural development, especially for the agriculture sector. He also challenged the farmers in making the project successful for its sustainability. Meanwhile, Roh Sang-Wook, Deputy Director of the Development and Cooperation Division of the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs of the Republic of Korea expressed his gratitude to all the people who were responsible in the fulfillment of the CPC and hoped for a stronger partnership with the government of the Philippines. Together with the representatives of both the Government of Korea and the Philippine government, corn stakeholders, farmers and local villagers affixed their signatures in committing for the successful operation and management of the CPC. # (VANESSA MAE S.

Mega vision for Cebu

Creating a sustainable community is a shared responsibility. It does not lie solely on the government or the private sector; it involves every citizen. In Metro Cebu, the Mega Cebu project is one of the main movers of promoting sustainable growth and development through an integrated and collaborative approach. Mega Cebu’s vision is “a vibrant, equitable, sustainable, and competitive environment that embraces Cebu’s creativity and its cultural, historical and natural resources, with strong citizen participation and responsive governance”. “Mega Cebu is a collaboration of stakeholders in government, non-government organizations (NGOs) and private sectors, which aims to plan Cebu's future,” Caroline Ballesteros, Mega Cebu communications and stakeholder relationship manager, said during the June 15 episode of Pagtuki, the official radio program of Ramon Aboitiz Foundation Inc. (RAFI). Thus, the said project works

towards a community that is cultural and historic, innovative, creative and competitive, inclusive, equitable and livable, interconnected and compact, integrated, coordinated, and participative. This is reflected in its tagline “Mega Cebu making WAVES (Wholesome, Advanced, Vibrant, Equitable, and Sustainable)”. Its different areas of focus aim to address challenges and issues in waste management, public safety, neighborhood participation, and historic and heritage preservation, among others. For Mary Ann Alcordo-Solomon of Cebu Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the first step to making solutions is finding out the problems in one's locality. “Let’s all be aware of what is happening in our society. For instance, having observed that motor vehicles contribute to pollution, we promote biking instead,” Alcordo said. Ballesteros echoed Alcordo's point, saying, “Sugbo, pagpakabana. Kon dili karon kanus-a pa? Kung dili kita, sulti-i ko’g kinsa

(Cebu, be vigilant. If not now, when? If not us, tell me who).” Mega Cebu, through the Metro Cebu Development Coordinating Board, is working with various local government units, government agencies, private companies, and civic organizations to come up with a 30-year integrated plan for Metro Cebu. Pagtuki is aired over dyLA 909 AM every Saturday at 1011am. The program, which is one of the Knowledge Sharing & Advocacy capabilities of RAFI, tackles timely and relevant issues on community development, politics and governance, microfinancing, education, environment, early childhood care and development, and culture and heritage that affect the Cebuano community. For more information about RAFI’s radio program, please contact Carmel Matus at 4187234 loc. 542, or visit www.rafi. org.ph or www.facebook.com/ rafi.org.ph, or follow @rafiorgph on Twitter.
