Aside from the presence of celebrity guest runner actor-model Ron Morales of ABS-CBN TV Network, more than 300 runners coming mostly from Davao City had joined the inaugural foot race held at the sprawling 26-hectare resort. It started with a warmup exercise led by Zumba instructor Mitchell and Maan of Dover Fitness Center. Organizer Mercy Lim welcomed all the participants and guests and signalled the start of the race. But race director Lito delos Reyes of forePlay Promotions first hard to ask the fans of Morales to stop them from taking pictures with their idol at the starting area in order to have a proper kick off. When Lim whistled, the runners in the 5K men and women’s open immediately sped off followed by the 3K boys and girls participants. They started with a 30-meter uphill climb followed by another more uphill route towards the 600 steps – a 300 downhil and 300 uphill. The fun | page 11

NDFP: UN report on use of child combatants by NPA ‘false, biased’ THE National Democratic Front of the Philippines’ (NDFP) Special Office for the Protection of Children slammed the report released by the United Nations Special Representative for Children in Armed Conflict (SRCAC) which alleges that the its armed wing the New People’s Army has been using and recruiting children. The SOPC was established in October 2012 after the NDFP issued its Declaration and Program of Action for the Rights, Protection and Welfare of Children on April 24, 2012. The special office was established to strengthen its mechanisms on monitoring and defending the rights of the child. Among its main functions is to oversee the implementation of the Program of Action by all of the NDFP’s organizations including the NPA; and to receive complaints of violations of

children’s rights and refer them for appropriate. In a statement, the special office’s chairwoman Connie Ledesma said: “The Special Office for the Protection of Children (SOPC) of the National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP) takes strong exception to the false and biased reports of the UN Office of the SRCAC on the so-called recruitment and use of children by the New People’s Army (NPA).” Last month, the UN released its 2012 report on the violations committed against children. According to the report, there are 26 children who were recruited by armed groups in the Philippines. Eleven of the said 26 children were recruited by the NPA, the rest were recruited by the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF), the Abu Sayyaf Group (ASG) and the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP).

The NPA, ASG and the MILF are also cited in the report as “persistent perpetrators” of the use of children in armed conflict. “The Abu Sayyaf, NPA and MILF continue to be cited in the UN blacklist of parties that recruit or use children, kill or maim children, commit rape and other forms of sexual violence against children, or engage in attacks on schools or hospitals in situations of armed conflict,” the report said. Ledesma belied the UN report saying that the allegations of the UN SRCAC are baseless. “After consultations with its regional representatives, the SOPC has confirmed that the allegations by the UN SRCAC of recruitment and use of children by the NPA in 2012 are baseless.” She said that “those claimed to be child soldiers are civilians whom the AFP had illegally arrested, detained and tortured or killed during military operations under what the Manila government calls ‘peace and development projects’ against communities suspected of supporting or under the influence of the revolutionary movement.” Ledesma added that all of those children happened to be in areas close to where armed encounters between

the AFP and the NPA took place. “One was killed because of indiscriminate gunfire by AFP soldiers; others had been traumatized by artillery and aerial bombardments and were arrested while attempting to seek refuge in nearby communities.” Ledesma further said, “The AFP practice of targeting children in communities and presenting them as child soldiers was again exposed on June 23 by the Mindanao Human Rights Action Center (MinHRAC) when they presented to the media three teenagers who were arrested and detained by the AFP in Kulasi, Sultan Kudarat, for purportedly being rebels when they were actually refugees who were attempting to return to their homes with adult companions to get their belongings after having evacuated from their community due to an armed encounter between the AFP and the NPA.” Ledesma said the policies and programs of the NDFP to protect the rights of children are clearly stated in its Declaration and Program of Action for the Rights, Protection and Welfare of Children. “This document is strictly followed by all the allied organizations of the NDFP, which include the NPA and

the Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP).” Minimum age requirement According to the NDFP, since 1988, the Political Bureau of the CPP’s Central Committee stipulated that the NPA may only recruit persons who are 18 years old and older as armed fighters for its combat units. Furthermore, on Oct. 15, 1999 the Executive Committee of the CPP issued the “Memorandum on the Minimum Age Requirement for NPA Fighters” reaffirming the minimum age of 18 for NPA fighters. In 2002, the policy of the minimum age was reiterated at the 11th Plenum of the CPP Center Committee. A research conducted by an independent think-tank Ibon Foundation commissioned by the Unicef showed the strict compliance of the NPA on the said minimum age requirement of 18 years old for NPA fighters. The research also showed that respondents are also well aware of the minimum age requirement for NPA fighters. “As far as the research team saw, there is general compliance with the CPPNPA-NDFP’s minimum age requirement policy. None among the fighters in the NPA units encountered were below 18 years old

even as a few currently active NPA guerrillas joined when they were between 1417 years old (the last being a 16- and a 17-year-old in 2003),” the research read. The research also showed that there are under-aged applicants who want to join the NPA; however, these applicants are being turned away. “There were firsthand and secondhand accounts of under-aged youth who tried to join the NPA as full-fledged combatants but who were not accepted because of their age. These emerged during the various focus group discussions and during individual interviews and can be taken as indicating efforts at strict policy implementation.” The research also showed that those who violate the said policy were meted with disciplinary action. The research entitled “Uncounted Lives: Children, Women, and Conflict in the Philippines” covered the period of 2001-2005 in eight communities where armed encounters between the military and either the NPA or MILF occurred. Meanwhile, Ledesma urged the UN SRCAC to advice its Philippine Country Task Force for Monitoring and Reporting (CTFMR) “to be more discerning and circumspect in the performance of its functions by exercising basic due diligence and not relying solely on reports by agencies of the Government of the Philippines (GPH) such as the AFP, Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) and Commission on Human Rights (CHR).” “The CTMFR as befitting its mandate should investigate the situation on the ground by talking to the people in the concerned community – the parents, teachers, independent human rights groups and even local officials. The illegally arrested and detained children have suffered enough and should not be coaxed or coerced into making false statements and incriminating admissions while in the presence of GPH officials,” she added. Ledesma also urged the UN SRCAC and its country task force to submit their findings to the SOPC of the NDFP for appropriate verification and investigation of such reported alleged recruitment and use of children by the NPA. “We deplore the fact that while the AFP is given an opportunity to respond, the NDFP through its SOPC has not even been informed of such allegations.” (http:// bulatlat.com)

Conquering Mt. Talomo By RAWI JUNE AMAGA-MORANDANTE of DavaoToday.com

DAVAO City––Sitting at the boundaries of Davao City and the provinces of Davao del Sur and Cotabato is the country’s 13th highest peak, the Mt. Talomo. Rising at an altitude of 2,674 meters above sea level, it’s rich in biological diversity and distinct with its magnificent mossy forest — true to being part of the Mt. Apo National Park. Specified as a major climb with a Trail Difficulty Level of 7/9, Class 2 to 5, and considered as the second toughest climb in Mindanao next to the White Peak or Mt. Pandadagsaan in Andap village, New Bataan, Compostela Valley province, Mt. Talomo has become an incipient climbing destination in the country. The village of Mt. Sicao Hiking for about an hour from the jump off area at Purok 6, Tamayong village in Calinan District, mountaineers can reach the village Mt. Sicao where about 400 Bagobo inhabitants live. The village was named after the tribe’s ancestors with their reigning

tribal chieftains, Datu Jun Sicao and his brother Apo Sicao. The tribe folks consider the hinterlands of Mt. Talomo as their ancestral domain and their sacred ground where their spiritual and cultural way of life have been founded. Because Mt. Talomo is a closed trail, the tribal chieftain’s permis-

In his speech, Adiong encouraged his fellow officials to be true to their sworn duties and responsibilities. Adiong also said that his administration will fur ther strengthen programs on agriculture, health, education, youth and women empowerment.

We will continue enhanced cooperation with other agencies in pursuit of these goals, he added. The mass oath taking, held at the Provincial Capitol Gymnasium here, was witnessed by Senator Paolo Benigno Aquino IV.

CAGAYAN de Oro City––Tactical Operations Group (TOG)-10 of the 3rd Air Division (3AD) commemorated its 28th Founding Anniversary on July 3. One of its highlights is the recognition of offices and various individual for the invaluable contribution and support to the success of Philippine Air Force (PAF) operations in the Northern Mindanao Region. MGen Nicanor M Vivar AFP, 3AD, who was guest of honor, commended the officers and air personnel of TOG-10. He cited their commitment in carrying out their work especially during the onslaught of Typhoon ‘Pablo’ in the region last December 2012 which caused flash floods in different areas of Cagayan de Oro. Despite the danger, the air personnel selflessly went out to rescue and help those in need. With the deployment of every single personnel, TOG-10 was able to reach isolated areas, ignited a ray of hope for the distraught and provided a fighting chance for each and every last responder, said MGen Vivar. Further, he lauded TOG-10 for its initiative to organize an interagency search and rescue training. Vivar also said that “as our internal peace and security plan is up and running and as the Bangsamoro Framework Agreement serves as brickwork for lasting peace, our role now is to pave the way for its mechanisms to spontaneously take its course”. He likewise emphasized that the road to peace is a two-way street. “Aside from extending the hands of reconciliation, we must remain vigilant, able and ready to safeguard the interest of our people and nation as a whole. Our advocacy must not only be limited to lip service. Instead, these must be grounded on sincere deeds or actions,” said Vivar.

She said they asked TIEZA to realign the funds to Tupi town following the approval last month of a P120 million grant for the development of a road network within Lake Sebu’s “eco-tourism circuit.” Tupi Mayor Reynaldo Tamayo said they are pushing for the utilization of the TIEZA funding for the improvement of the road from the tarsier sanctuary in Barangay Linan to the national highway. He said they are eyeing for possible additional grants from the agency to further boost the development of the town’s tourist attractions. The mayor specifically cited the town’s hot and soda springs, cold springs, waterfalls, tarsier sanctuary, among others. “We need to work for the inclusion of Tupi into TIEZA to fully develop the tourism potentials of our municipality,” Tamayo said.

The ESI team, which is headed by its founder and president Dr. Pierre Fidenci, launched the tarsier research in December 2011 in two sites within the he Mt. Matutum Protected Landscape (MMPL). The municipal government of Tupi had endorsed ESI’s research project as part of its efforts to tap the tarsiers and its habitat for ecotourism development. In 2009, the indigenous people of Sitio Bagong Silang in Barangay Linan captured a tarsier along with three grass owls. The Philippine tarsier, which has brought fame to Bohol, is one of the country’s primary flagship species for conservation. According to the International Union for the Conservation of Nature, the Philippine tarsier (Tarsius syrichta) has been classified as “near threatened.” (PNA)

GENERAL SANTOS CITY -- The Department of Tourism (DOT) is investing some P30 million this year for the development of various tourism-related infrastructure in Tupi town in South Cotabato. South Cotabato Gov. Daisy Avance-Fuentes said such investment is part of the DOT’s continuing efforts to develop new tourist attractions and destinations in the countryside, especially in parts of Mindanao. “This is a financial grant for the construction of tourism facilities like cottages and tourist or visitor information centers as well as the improvement of road networks,” she said. The governor said the project will be implemented in Barangay Linan in Tupi, which is hosts a tarsier sanctuary. She said the funds will be drawn from the P30 million allotment earlier approved by the DOT’s Tourism Infrastructure and Economic Zone Authority (TIEZA) for tourism projects in Lake Sebu town.

Environmental group pushes for a ‘Pawikan’ captured, national legislation vs plastic bag released in Samar By Azer N. Parrocha

MANILA -- Environmental advocates on Wednesday led a march along the vicinity of J. P. Laurel High School, Tondo, Manila to send out the message of regulating the use, sale and distribution of plastic bags. This march was participated in by more than 500 students, school officials, parent-teacher officers, beauty queens, environmentalists and supporters in celebration of the 4th International Plastic Bag-Free Day. It also drew support from the city government of Manila headed by President Mayor Joseph Estrada as part of his administration’s environmental agenda to combat climate change. Estrada has previously mentioned during his oath taking as Mayor of Manila that his team would start cleaning waterways to mitigate flooding. Aside from this, he also mentioned that lessons from last year, citing the notorious flooding problem due to monsoon rains, must have already been learnt by now. The environmental group, EcoWaste Coalition has also shown support for the upcoming citywide ban on plastic bags and polystyrene con-

tainers that will take effect starting September 2013 in Manila. Manila City Ordinance 8282, once implemented, will ban the use of plastic bags for dry goods and regulate their use for wet goods, and altogether bans polystyrene (Styrofoam) as container for food, produce and other products. This ban is both a climate change mitigation measure and a disaster risk reduction response as it intends ultimate phase out of all kinds of plastic bags. Aside from this, it also eases discards collection mechanisms and recycling, and supports LGUs in their waste management schemes as mandated by R.A. 9003 or the Ecological Solid Waste Management Act of 2000. “The ordinance will also prohibit business establishments from offering, selling, or using plastic bags as primary or secondary packaging for dry goods, and forbids barangay collection of discarded plastics unless these are pre-cleaned and dried, according to one of the decree’s sponsors Councilor Numero Lim. He added that it was only about time that the city of Manila enforced a ban on the distribution and use of plastic

bags “to stop the nonchalant disposal of these materials and protect what remains of our environment”. Waste Prevention Waste audits conducted by eco-groups in 2006, 2010 and 2011 revealed plastic products, particularly plastic bags, were the highest garbage contributor in terms of volume in Manila Bay and Laguna Lake. Discards survey conducted by the same group in 2006 and 2010 showed plastic bags comprising 51.4 and 27.7 percent, respectively, of the detritus in Manila Bay. At present, the group counted at least 90 LGUs all over the country that have similar ordinances in place banning or regulating plastic bags, with several localities following suit before the end of the year. According to EcoWaste Coalition’s Task Force Head on Plastics and Mother Earth Foundation member Sonie Mendoza, plastic bags were the embodiment of an antiquated, throw-away mentality that needs to be addressed. “Through our action today, we ask the national government to enact laws and policies that will reinforce the initiatives of visionary LGUs and eventually wean us from plastic bags,” Mendoza said.

“By outlawing the use of plastic bags and other nonecologically sound packaging materials, we substantially reduce our waste generation,” she added. She further explained that this will cut waste management costs and lessen related environmental risks such as flooding and marine pollution. “Recycling plastic bags does not necessarily reduce wastes as it just manages the plastic bags that have already been created,” Mendoza said. “Recycled plastics still make its way back to the consumers’ buy-use-dispose loop, thus, adding more plastics in the environment. What we need to do is to avoid its usage in the first place,” she added. The ban of the use of plastic bags will help boost the demand for locally-made bayongs and cloth bags, which supports local cottage industries and creates more employment and business opportunities in both urban and rural areas. The group suggested that because they were made of raw materials, they are readily available all over the country. It is also a good time for LGUs and businesses to support and invest in the production of bayongs and cloth bags. (PNA)

TACLOBAN CITY -- A rare sea turtle locally known as “pawikan” was accidentally captured by a fisherman in Basey, Samar. Community Environment and Natural Resources Officer Dario Suarez said the pawikan that was measuring 41 centimeters long and 39 centimeters wide was captured by Victorio Quilitano’s fish pen in Barangay Palaypay in Basey, Samar recently. “The pawikan sustained minor injury and was immediately turned over to the Department of Agriculture for treatment. It was later turned over to DENR for proper disposition,” Suarez said. He added the pawikan was tagged PH 6024E and was released back to the sea waters off JINAMOC Island in Basey. The release of the pawikan was witnessed by representatives from DA, local government unit of Basey, DENR and CENRO in Sta. Rita, Samar. DENR-8 regional executive director Manolito Ragub said the public’s concern for the pawikan, an endangered sea creature, is a manifestation that the campaign

for the protection of the seas and conservation of marine resources are gaining grounds. “Nowadays, everybody must work for the balance of all our environmental ecosystems such as the seas and its resources as a way of mitigating the adverse impact of climate change,” Ragub said. He added that all species of sea turtles, like any other marine creatures, play a critical role in maintaining the web of life in the seas. “However, said species, important as it is, are becoming critically endangered due to threats from poaching and illegal extraction by unscrupulous individuals,” Ragub said. Meanwhile, Danilo Javier, regional technical director of Protected Areas Wildlife and Coastal Zone Management Service said that the DENR is intensifying efforts for the protection of pawikans under the Pawika Conservation Project. “Mere possession and killing of this species is punishable under Section 27 of Republic Act 9147, or the Wildlife Act,” Javier said.

How do you trade your time? We are all time traders. Of all assets that we have at our disposal, time is our single most important resource. The value of a resource is often defined by its supply and demand profile. The more something is needed and the more its supply is limited, the higher its value becomes. With the limitation of our time and the highest demand we ascribe to it, it easily becomes inarguably the most valuable commodity we have. As the cliché goes, “time is gold.” Short of inventing a machine that can turn back time or freeze it for a certain length, time spent and lost can never be recovered. Unlike precious gems that can be secured safely in a vault, time cannot be hoarded and spent at a later period. Ti m e c o nt i nu o u s l y moves and slips by, whether we want it to or not. But like money with a

The financial doctor Dr. Adonis Agcopra corresponding value, time can however be saved and invested. When we manage our affairs excellently and give priority to the most important things first, we can save more time to spend for leisure and enjoyment. When we invest in something, we naturally expect some kind of return. How we use our time at each particular moment is an investment which determines the specific return we get out of it. Each and every hour of our lives, we trade our time for something in exchange. So it might pay you rich returns if you learn to constantly ask yourself: “How

do I trade my valuable time right now?” Time seems to work in mysterious ways but it generally follows the dictums of the law of cause and effect. The way you spend your time in the past was the immediate cause of what you are now. The way you are consciously or unconsciously spending your time right now is also a cause – in fact, it is precisely the exact cause of what happens to you in the next hour, in the next few days, months and years of your life. In our younger and innocent years when the ways of the world are quite for-

Classroom of life

THINK a minute. Remember when you were in school? You know who’s best at doing tests, but you don’t know who will succeed at the tests of life. By the time we’ve finished 10-12 years of school, we’ve learned some accounting with debits and credits, but we’ve still not learned how to truly forgive our debtors and people who have wronged and hurt us. We know what direction Japan is, but we’re not sure which way we should go in life. In school, we learn how to do everything except how to live! It’s after we finish school that we must start learning how to live in the classroom

of real life. So who is the right teacher for us? Who can best teach us how to live well? Isn’t it logical that whoever invented life is the One Who knows how life best works? This is on of the reasons Jesus Christ became a human being—as the Teacher of real living. He explains and shows us the way God designed life to be lived. That’s why Jesus is the only person in history who could ever come back to life after dying and being buried for three days. He’s still teaching today! So we would be smart to listen and do everything He tells us are the principles for living a successful and

satisfying life. If you put your life in Jesus’ hands, He will work everything together for good in your life. Jesus will show you what to do about your boss who is unfair to you. He’ll teach you how to pay back your debts and manage your money problems. Jesus will show you what you can do so your child won’t feel so angry and rebel against you. He’ll show you how to change and improve your marriage relationship. And Jesus will help you do your best in school. Jesus can even use your mistakes to teach you lessons on how to live well and right.

eign, it’s easy to think that time seems to move very slow and there seems to be not that much things to do. But when we are shoved to face the real world and find ways to earn our keep and make ends meet by ourselves, time suddenly seems not to suffice, continuously moving fast. Running after time becomes a daily routine. Spend most of your time with things that are fun and easy now, reap a lifetime of long-term pain. But invest your time wisely now, carefully planning and sacrificing shortterm pains for long-term gains, expect to live a happier, richer and more fulfilling life. Do it now! ----(Dr. Adonis Agcopra, MBA, CIS, RFC® is with the IARFC and is portfolio director of AFIC Meridian Consultants. URL: www. aficfinancialconsultants. com.

Kakampi mo ang batas Atty. Batas Mauricio two senators alone make a difference in championing the cause of abused consumers? Two votes in a collegial body of 24 will hardly make a dent, especially in passing legislation to curb abuses, unless the other senators would be willing to help. But then, supposing some of these colleagues received campaign donations from these monopolies in past elections? Will those who received donations from the monopolies be as eager to investigate their alleged

abuses? I guess that the only way that Escudero and Sotto can really help consumers to jumpstart their fight against abuses by monopolies is to expose the extent of the monopolies’ influence among lawmakers, by compelling them---the monopolies, I mean---to disclose who they supported and how much they contributed to each and every lawmaker in all the elections participated in by them in the past. -ooo-

Rice Farmers Techno Forum held in DA’s research station

D

angcagan, Bukidnon – ANCHORED on the Philippine government’s target of achieving ample supply of rice by the year 2013 and onwards, the Bukidnon Agricultural Productivity Center (BAPC), one of the research stations of the Department of Agriculture – Regional Field Office 10 (DA-10), recently conducted its 3rd Rice Farmers Technology Forum on June 28, 2013, in this town. The said activity primarily aimed at showcasing inbred rice varieties, namely NSIC Rc 158, 212, 214, 222, 224, 226 and 240, and organic rice seed growth to rice farmers. Technical experts from the station have imparted the characteristics of various inbred rice varieties, including their reaction to pests and diseases, eating quality, yield, among others. Out from the abovesaid varieties, harvest yield ranges from 5.4 metric tons per hectare (mt/ha) to 10.6 mt/ha with an average maturing days of 113. Likewise, a guided field tour on the station’s Palayamanan was also conducted. It is a diversified farming system that employs the bahay-kubo concept, in which it was innovated for a higher level of farming integration. As such combines rice with other high valued crops, fish and waste recycling

practices, which is seen to increase farmers’ productivity and income by maximizing the use of farmlands while contributing to ecological balance. As this year is also declared as the ‘National Year of Rice’, the DA through BAPC station superintendent Ulito T. Kingdom stressed the farmers’ role to be one with the government in its bid for the country to become a surplus supplier of rice starting 2013 and beyond as expressed in the Panaad sa Pagdaginot sa Humay. “Isip usa ka Pilipino, nakighiusa ako sa pagpanaad nga dili mag-usik-usik sa kan-on ug bugas…tudloan nako ang uban sa responsableng pagkunsumo aron mahatagan ug bili ang kahago sa mga mag-uuma ug makatabang ako sa pagkab-ot nga mapaigo ang gidaghanong bugas sa Pilipinas,” nearly 50 farmer-guests have pledged.

Nearly 50 rice farmer-guests (left) in the locality recited in unison the Panaad sa Pagdaginot sa Humay, signifying their commitment to contribute in the government’s goal of achieving rice self-sufficiency for the country with 2013 as its earliest target. Meanwhile, DA-10 Regional Technical Director for Regulatory and Research Constancio C. Maghanoy, Jr. (right) stresses the rice farmers’ integral role in providing food for the nation.

Also citing that “the only thing constant in this world is change,” DA-10 Regional Technical Director for Research and Regulatory Constancio C. Maghanoy, Jr. explained that the department through the station will carry on in conducting and exhibiting researches of productive, economical and sustainable farming technologies for the cultivators of land. Recognizing the farmers’ long and enduring experience and years in farming, he also encouraged them to consider in bringing and applying the available technologies found

in the station that might be suitable in their respective farmlands. Furthermore, he pushed for the farmers in attendance to also relay to their fellow farmers, as well the different farming technologies that they have witnessed first-hand at the station. With the forum at hand, the department is expectant that more farmers will be able to propel their existing farm practices and in due course, would also augment their livelihood and income amid numerous farming challenges. # (Joanne L. Olson, DA-10)

and natural resources of the country amount to giving up its sovereignty? And while we are raising these questions, can Ms. Ferrer explain what do they mean when they say “wealth sharing” with the MILF? -ooo“MORE VOTES THAN VOTERS” HAUNT OTHER METRO MANILA CITIES: At a press conference Friday, July 05, 2013, that tackled the petition I filed for a group of Pasay City residents seeking a declaration of failure of elections in the city on account of clearly manipulated and padded election results which came from the very precinct count optical scan (PCOS) machines that were used there last May 13, 2013, it appeared to everyone present that the same manipulation and padded results happened in other cities and municipalities, too. One of the reporters present during the press conference told me that in a town in Cavite which is geographically very near Metro Manila, a candidate also noticed that the total “ERRATUM” Approval of sale and transfer Case No;2013-10-824 Vendor –GARARDO ABAT Vendee- MANUEL GARARDO Thanks

number of votes credited for all the candidates in a single-official position exceeded the total number of ballots that the PCOS machines counted, just like what happened in Pasay City. Then, information also reached us that other cities in Metro Manila experienced the same phenomenon, except that the losing candidates are no longer interested to complain, either for fear of possible reprisals from the Commission on Elections or from other government officials who are interested to uphold the accuracy of the elections, or simply because they have started preparing for 2016, having learned their lessons from 2013. -oooIF RP IS “TROUBLEMAKER”, WHAT SHALL WE CALL CHINA? If the Philippines is a “troublemaker” because it is pursuing its ownership of the islands located at the West Philippine Sea, what should we call China with its insistence on deploying warships in the area---a “peacemaker” out to maintain peace and order in the troubled region, such that it is driving away other claimants by the sheer strength of its naval forces?

which they used to build a ministage for the community and a basketball court, among others. An elementary school which is run by the Seventh Day Adventist church is conspicuous. However, they have no health center. Datu Jun said medical missions are conducted every last week of the month by some volunteer nurses and doctors from the city. But he said the services are only limited to children’s feeding program and deworming. A few of the villagers here still practice the traditional ritual and worship to their god “Manama,” just like Datu Sicao. This village is the last retreat community for mountaineers before they trek the extensive trails of the forests. The assault The assault to the summit would take a nine-hour trek from the village of Mt. Sicao. Hikers would have to go through the very tough and complicated ascent in a frequently steep track. One would have to brave through the slippery logs, grip at the roots and branches as he or she sidles the unwelcoming forest trail. The weather is very unpredictable. Most of the time, dark clouds and thick fogs dim the whole forest and a regular light drizzle drenches the trail, making it even harder to surpass. There is an unnamed waterfall which is the only source of good water during a half day’s trek. Usually, this is where mountaineers take their lunch. Amidst the seemingly perpetual onslaught of the biting low temperature due to the rain, fog, and high altitude; and after several hours of physically

taxing and disheartening negotiation with the mountain’s retribution, the summit rewards you with beautiful scenery. If the weather’s good, one would witness the magnificent sunrise while seeing the grand and mighty Mt. Apo from afar. If the trail going up has not been that welcoming, the trail coming down is not giving you a kind option. The chase downhill is unforgivable as it literally drags you either to stumble or fall, or worse both. Hikers’ knees would wobble in surrender to the rapid pull downward, an ironic token for any intrepid hikers who dreamed to conquer an extraordinary mountain like Mt. Talomo. Beyond mountaineering A group of freelance and experienced mountaineers founded in September 2012, the We Observe We Obtain Knowledge (Wowok) Mountaineers, adopted a clean-up drive as they campaigned for the mountain’s conservation. Even the highest ground is not safe from the people’s, especially hikers’, irresponsibility. This was evident with the portion of the summit depressingly piled up with garbage. This has been Wowok’s second friendship and clean-up drive as they continued to advocate for the protection and preservation of the mountain’s ecology. “Steadfast to our advocacy, we are encouraging and teaching mountaineers to practice responsible mountaineering, and on their own right contribute to the preservation of the environment especially the highlands that are also highly prone to abuse,” said Alex Andico, the group’s representative in an interview by davaotoday.com. Indeed, a mediocre climb could turn into a meaningful and an exceptional experience. Beyond Wowok’s cause is their generosity to the villagers of Mt. Sicao where they distributed school supplies to the children through their members’ individual contribution of PHP 50. With the smiles on the villagers’ faces, especially those children, and the exchanges of mutual appreciation from the mountaineers; the hardships of conquering Mt. Talomo were all worth it.

Effective Interventions for Combating School Gangs By Justiniana M. Cabigon, Maramag Central Elem. School

For more than thirty years of teaching in Maramag Central Elem. School, I have come across with some outputs of researchers from Valencia group of teachers. They published a very worthwhile article as a partial requirement in their Advanced English and Professional Writing under Dr. Menilo Pechora, professor and at the same the current OIC-Director of Valencia Colleges Incorporated. Here are the following 8 interventions which have been shown to be effective on their own, but can also be the basis of a comprehensive school wide strategy; 1. Target students vulnerable to gang recruitment for special assistance, particularly through the use of peer counselors and support groups. Mentoring, conflict programs and tutoring can be particularly effective. 2. Establish moral and ethical education, values clarification , and conflict resolution as important components of the school curriculum. 3. Create an inviting school climate where every student feels valued. 4. Educate all staff, including support staff, about how gangs develop and how to respond to them; 5. Offer special program for parents on gang and to deal with them as a parent. 6. Monitor youths who are not enrolled in school but “hang-out” on or near the school campus. 7. Offer educational programs for students about gang, their destructiveness, and how to avoid being drawn into them. 8. Provide regular opportunities for students, individuals or by small groups to discuss their experiences in school and personal rewards. With these aforementioned interventions, I believe we can apply them in our respective school whenever similar cases might occur. As a public school teacher, it is a crucial role to know deeper on the lives or situations of the learners so that they will be more guided, monitored and assisted. Focusing the four corners of the classroom is not enough. If we want to achieve effectiveness and efficiency in our instruction, we must acquaint our pupils/students well so that they will become better citizen of our country. So, let’s value the future of the learners! Gangs in school can easily be prevented if we work hand and hand for their brighter future. Can you make it? Feel and see the differences if you have made to transform the lives of the gangsters.

Germs only cause disease, right? But a common bacterium, E. Coli, found in the intestine helps us digest green vegetables and beans (also making gases – pew!). These same bacteria also make vitamin K, which causes blood to clot. If we didn’t have these germs we would bleed to death whenever we got a small cut!

Talk of the town Marlon T. Gayog

WEALTH SHARING on GRP/MILF PeaceTalk Today The Civil Society Organization (CSO) in Mindanao meet in Davao City to convene the re affirming their commitment to and imbibing the hope for Peace in Mindanao, gathered to reflect on the urgent issues affecting the negotiations between the Government and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF), and to discern what can be done in earnest to keep alive the hopes for lasting peace. We all know that almost one year to be exact 8 months have passed since the country witnessed the Euphoria of the signing of the landmark Framework agreement of the Bangsamoro (FAB) that laid down the principles and roadmap to resolve the decades of rebellion in Mindanao. The FAB, plus four annexes dealing on the details of Wealth-Sharing, Power Sharing, Transitional modalities, and Normalization, comprise the comprehensive agreement. So far, only the annex for transitional modalities has been done. During the Media briefing the panelist composed of Patricia Jarenas- Mincode( Mindanao Coalition of Development NGO’s) Guiamel Alim- CBCS ( Consortium of Bangsamoro Civil Society) Atty Mary Ann Arnado – MPC ( Mindanao Peoples Caucus) and Dr. Pendatun Pangadel ( P. CART). The issue brought by the media was the WEALTH SHARING…. Why the Government

was so optimistic about the issue of wealth sharing with in fact if we will talk about the IPRA LAW or ancestral Domain our brother Muslim has all the right to get all the resources or wealth with in the ancestral land? According to the panelist that the government wants to have 50/50 or 70/30 in favor of the government. It so unfair if the government will always take advantage of the situation because in Mindanao Alone how much is the sharing we got in the National Budget with in fact we are called as the FOOD BASKET in the Philippines. The FAB is a special Peace Agreement of the MILF to the Government I hope the government Peace Panel will give more generous in giving the Wealth Sharing so that our Muslim brothers can have their independence in term of Economics condition of the people in the area. I understand the difficulties facing the government and MILF negotiators in building consensus given the nature of the remaining issues they grappled with, even then, we note how hard work and creativity led them to agree on the transitional modalities, and achieve preliminary consensus on Wealth Sharing.

TIME IS RUNNING OUT. Peace advocates in Mindanao worry that only one of the four annexes contained in the Framework Agreement on the Bangsamoro was signed by the GPH and the MILF panels. On Thursday in Davao City, they called for the resumption of the peace talks and the signing of the annexes as there are only 1,000 days left before the FAB’s deadline. (Medel V.

Dev’t of M’danao agri industry opens investment opportunity DAVAO City--The holding of the Philippine Investment Conference in Davao City last June at SMX Convention Center here opened up opportunities for multi-national investors to consider developing agriculture in some areas in Mindanao. Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) Davao City director Teolulo Pasawa said business-matching took place during the conference

and among the areas investors considered developing are oil palm and integrated coconut processing plant. He said the Indonesiabased investors are considering the areas hit by typhoon ‘Pablo’ in Davao Oriental for the growing of oil palm. The Singaporean investors, meanwhile, are looking at Butuan for the integrated coconut processing plant. For this project, Pasawa

said the investors will process all food products from coconut. He said this will include the processing of coco water and virgin coconut oil. He said talks are ongoing and hopefully will proceed as there are already locations that the investors have considered. These two projects will have local partners but Pasawa did not give details.

On the other hand, Pasawa said they continue to receive queries from foreign investors. Other than on property development and agriculture, he said several queries were on Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) operation. Investments related to ICT still is among the many types of inquiries they get, he added. PNA

The drivers of the group, Rodel Sigue and Jerry Alcala, were dropped from the complaint to turn state witness against all the accused. Alcala and Sigue narrated in court all the details of Suico’s abduction and murder and their testimony were given weight by the court in convicting couple Doris and Bonjiber Gargar. In court, Doris denied having participated in the crime while Bonjiber admitted his participation and absolved his estranged wife. Branding their defense as alibis, Judge Morales convicted both accused for the crime of murder. “There were sufficient and unbroken chain of events that directly and definitely linked them to the commission of the crime without any space for baseless suppositions and that there was evidently a unity of the execution of their unlawful objective—that of murdering the victim Alona,” Judge Morales pointed out.

He explained that the ODAS solution is a dedicated system that uses fiberoptic cables to distribute a base station’s signals to multiple low power active antenna systems installed in nominal locations inside residential subdivisions. This in effect allows the delivery of a more reliable service in the deployment area without the need for towering cell sites, he said. “The ODAS solution does not only improve mobile phone signals, they also provide an alternative and efficient lighting system as Globe Telecom strives to provide value-added services to the communities we partner with,” Estrada said.

In fact, all cell sites and ODAS equipment of the company have also been given radiation safety certificates by the Department of Health, he said. “It is a known fact that power from broadcast transmitters are at least 1,000 times higher than traditional cell sites and at least 10,000 times higher than signals from each ODAS antenna,” Estrada said. He added that based on studies by the World Health Organization, there is no conclusive evidence to associate exposure to radio signals from cell sites or wireless networks with adverse health effects.

Natividad disclosed “This workshop is the best avenue to cultivate the creative minds of the students and teachers in harnessing their skills in

photography, videography, painting, stage acting and script writing. We do not know that in the future, another world class film maker would come from your group and it would not be a surprise because the people of Camiguin are gifted with cinematic views like the island says ‘the island of your imagination’.” Nestor U.
