Drug abuse trends showed that Methamphetamine Hydrochloride (commonly known as shabu), Cannabis Sativa (known as marijuana), and ecstasy are the most preferred drugs among users in Cagayan de Oro City. These trends led to an increase in the number of drug-affected barangays, with

province next month, to review and evaluate the implementation of the Community Based Rehabilitation Programme (CBRP) - a about 45 percent of the city’s 80 barangays already identified as drug-affected—with 11 barangays classified as seriously affected or suspected to host drug laboratory, chemical warehouse, and drug dens; 24 barangays as moderately affected or reported/suspected to host drug pushers; and one barangay considered as slightly affected or reported as having at least one drug dependent or user. The current situation in the city has raised the level of urgency among concerned stakeholders to combat dangerous drugs. Thus, the Cagayan de Oro City Anti-Illegal Drugs Core Group was formed with active involvement of Local Government Units (LGUs), Government Agencies, NonGovernment Organizations (NGOs), academe, media, civic organizations, and private groups and individuals.

The team is also expected to identify viable income generating projects involving people with disabilities in the province. To date, there are about 283 mentally ill clients served under the CBRP. While some of them are now considered at manageable stage, the remaining 215 are still under close supervision with the local health unit. The provincial local government unit (PLGU), Department of HealthCenter for Health Development (DOH-CHD) and the National Center for Mental Health were also continuously providing for the patients medication all year round. Just last year, the PLGU and the National Center for Mental Health also forged a memorandum of agreement for a regular bi-yearly visits and consultation with the patients suffering of mental illness.

40 giant puppets to add attraction to Leyte’s Pintados-Kasadyaan Festival of Festivals By Pearl Lena TACLOBAN CITY -- Forty giant puppets will parade at the thoroughfares of Tacloban City to give additional attraction to the PintadosKasadyaan Festival of Festivals here this June 29. Palo Mayor Remedios L. Petilla who at the same time is the chairperson of this year’s major tourism event in Leyte said that they won’t be part of the competition of festivals instead their puppets will be joining the parade and thereafter will perform onstage. The giant puppets represent the characters of tourism attractions in Palo that include “Pamalandong Patron ha Palo,” “Pagbalik ha Palo,” and “Pasko ha Palo.” “The characters of these three big events in Palo will be portrayed by way of giant puppets,” she said. The lady mayor nonetheless said that they might join

the competition next year. Currently, they are not ready because they are yet to determine the theme

of their festival amid the various interpretations of the town’s history. The Pintados-Kasadyaan

Festival of Festivals is a grand celebration of two major festivals-the Pintados Festival that gathers various

festivals in Eastern Visayas and the Kasadyaan Festival that provides venue for Leyte towns to showcase their

Airlines’ fit to fly’ rules violate rights of pregnant women WELLINGTON -- Airlines around the world are discriminating against pregnant women with unjust “fit to fly” rules, according to a New Zealand academic. Many carriers imposed a total ban on pregnant women flying past a deadline that could vary from 28 to 37 weeks of pregnancy, University of Canterbury Associate Professor Annick Masselot wrote in a European Commission

Justice report on the rights of pregnant women. “Airlines justify their self-declared regulation on grounds of health and safety but, in reality, there is no clear medical or scientific research backing the need to ban pregnant women from flights,” Masselot said in a statement Tuesday. “It is arguably a form of control over women in order to limit the potential

inconvenience of dealing with a woman going into labor in a plane,” said the gender researcher. “There should not be any reason to request a medical certificate or refuse women to board a plane based on pregnancy. There is no reason to impose such conditions on pregnant women when passengers who might suffer from, for example, high blood pressure or heart problems

are not requested to provide any evidence of their ability to fly. Pregnancy is not a form of illness.” The practice was accepted across the world, but was “legally questionable” in Europe at least and had never been legally challenged. Pregnant women were having their right to move limited by airlines for no scientific reason, while being asked to disclose

personal details about their pregnancy to complete strangers. Too many people infringed legal obligations relating to the rights of pregnant women without being held accountable, she said. “This disregard of the law in relation to pregnant women can be put down to harmful gender and cultural stereotypes which are very much alive.” (PNA/Xinhua)

DAVAO City--Industry movers in the tourism industry cluster are now gearing up for the upcoming “Kadayawan” Festival in this city scheduled in August, according to Mary “Baby” Montemayor, chair of the Davao Region Tourism Council. In her recent report to consultants of Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), Montemayor said several of the projects and activities lined up this year by the tourism industry cluster had already been accomplished. “We’ll continue to join other activities in the region that attract domestic and foreign visitors to Davao,” Montemayor told the JICA consultants during the recent monitoring meeting at the Department of Trade and Industry

(DTI) regional office. One of the biggest events that was participated actively by the tourism industry here was the recently-concluded MICE Conference which drew hundreds of delegates from various Asian countries as well as North America and Europe. Held at the new SMX Convention Center in Lanang this city, the event gathered top executives of tourism organizations, global hotels, travel agencies worldwide, event organizers, global airlines, and tourism councils from different countries. Montemayor said the Davao region’s tourism booth during the event was “the most visited booth” which received hundreds of inquiries about travel destinations, tour spots and the

unique tribal handicrafts and accessories found in the region. Bracing for an avalanche of domestic and foreign visitors coming to Davao for the annual Kadayawan Festival, the tourism industry cluster will set up again the tribal crafts booth that had been attracting tourists, visitors as well as tribal craft buyers to this city. “Many buyers are fascinated by the handmade crafts made by our various ethnic tribes in Davao,” Montemayor said. The tourism industry cluster is also coordinating with the coconut industry cluster whose members are also making various handicrafts, hand bags, and fashion accessories made of coconut shell and coco fiber.

respective festivals. Pintados is now on its 27th year while Kasadyaan is on its 18th year, both held to honor Senior Sto. Niño, the patron saint of Tacloban City and the province of Leyte. This year’s participants to the Kasadyaan Festival include Hindang, Dulag, La Paz, Tolosa,Tanauan, Alangalang, Abuyog towns while Pintados Festival has Sta. Rita, Palo, Tolosa and three entries from Tacloban City.

PCG intensifies inspection of vessels in Bacolod port BACOLOD CITY – The Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) has intensified its inspection of both cargo and passenger vessels traveling to and from Bacolod City starting Monday. Lt. Commander Glenn Daraug of PCG-Bacolod stressed that the mandatory pre-departure inspection is for the safety of crew and passengers of the vessels. Daraug pointed out this kind of pro-active measure must be done strictly to prevent any untoward incident like what happened to MV St. Gregory the Great over the weekend. The ill-fated ship nearly capsized after it suffered a hole in its hull while navigating Iloilo Straight on June 15. Sea water submerged its engine compartment but, fortunately, its 360 passengers arrived at Fort San Pedro Iloilo City safely. A day prior to the incident, a roll-on roll-off (RORO) ship sank at Burias Straight off the coast of Masbate province. Daraug said strict predeparture inspection must ensure that the ships are fit to sail especially this rainy season when monsoon rain continue to affect the region. Daraug warned that they will file appropriate charges against the owner of any shipping lines who fail to meet their standards. (PNA)

13 die, 14 missing DPWH plan to cut 651 trees along in Nepal due to national road in Naga City opposed floods and landslides KATHMANDU -- A total of 13 people lost their lives and 14 have gone missing due to landslides and floods triggered by heavy rainfall in different parts of Nepal on Tuesday evening, police said. With the beginning of monsoon season, the country is receiving heavy rainfall the past few days, causing landslides, floods and houses to collapse at different parts of the country. Nepal Police Spokesperson Keshav Adhikari told Xinhua that 13 people have been confirmed dead in Dailekh, Baitadi and Achham, the mid and far-west hill districts of Nepal. Seven members of a single family were killed after their house collapsed on Monday night due to landslides at Malika VDC-2 in Dailekh district. Four people have been killed at Siddheshwor VDC of Baitadi district when a landslide swept their house the same night. Similarly,

two people died at Kuntibandali village of Achham when a landslide hit their houses while they were sleeping. Meanwhile, 14 people have been reported missing as they were washed away by the flood in Sannigad River in Kalikot district, the police said. Moreover, many houses along with two bridges over the river have also been washed away. The district headquarters of Darchula in the north west Nepal is in panic as swollen Mahakali River intruded into the small town Sunday night. The Mahakali river bordering India has swept away 50 houses and displaced 1,500 people, the police said. Similarly, 1,500 houses have been inundated in Bardiya District due to the floods in the Karnali River. Around 700 families have been displaced due to flood in Sonaha, Murgarwa of Daulatpur VDC in Rajpur Tappu of Bardiya district. (PNA/Xinhua)

task force. “DENR and DepEd have a standing memorandum of agreement, in which illegallycut forest will be donated to them and utilized for public school fixtures,” Saikol earlier said in a press conference. Muripaga Umpar, DENR Region 12’s technical director for forestry, said DepEd and DSWD will be issued with formal notification informing them t on the procedures of log and lumber donations from the agency. By procedure, the DENR initially declares the seized forest products as forfeited to facilitate their donation to DepEd and other requesting agencies. Saikol said the forest products that they will donate to DepEd and DSWD are part of the estimated 300,000 bd.ft. of illegally-cut lumber and logs that were recovered by government troops on March 17 following a series of operations at an illegal logging area in Barangay Kabulnan, Bagumbayan town in Sultan Kudarat. He said the illegally-cut forest products, which were valued at P13.5 million, were found stockpiled in Sitio Salatan in Barangay Kabulnan and were believed to have been sawn from trees coming from the Industrial Forest Management Agree-

NAGA City-- Camarines Sur -- A total of 651 old and giant trees lining the national road in this city will be cut once the road widening project of the Department of Public Works and Highways starts soon. DPWH Regional Director Danilo Dequito said there is a need to turn the affected road into four lanes, citing the volume of vehicles passing the area daily. Dequito said the additional lanes on both sides of the road cannot be done without cutting the trees. In the inventory conducted by the City Environment and Natural Resources Office, CENRO chief Oscar Orozco said 651 old and big trees will be affected and this will convert the entrance to Naga City proper like a barren space once the cutting of trees is carried out. Orozco said the trees affected are those along the national highway in barangays Concepcion Pequeña, Concepcion Grande, Del Rosario and Mabulo -- the areas covered by the road widening. He said the trees to be affected are narra, mango, acacia, mahogany and talisay -- all giving enough shade,

DENR-12 to donate seized logs to schools GENERAL Santos City-The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) in Region 12 is working for the processing of around 140,000 board feet (bd.ft.) of illegally-cut lumber and logs that were seized last March in Sultan Kudarat province into arm chairs and other fixtures. Datu Tungko Saikol, DENR Region 12 director, said in a statement that they decided to donate the illegally-cut forest products to the Department of Education (DepEd) and the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) in the region and process them for various uses. He said the two agencies have earlier sent requests to the DENR-12 for the use of the seized logs and lumber as materials for classroom furniture and other purposes. Section 2.7 of Executive Order (EO) No. 23 issued by President Benigno S. Aquino III in February 2011 provides that “DepEd shall be given priority in the use of all confiscated logs.” EO 23 specifically declared a moratorium on the cutting and harvesting of timber in the natural and residual forests and the creation of the anti-illegal logging

ment (IFMA) area of the Silvicultural Industries, Inc. (SII). SII is a private company which has an existing production-sharing agreement with the DENR under IFMA 022 and is obliged to protect the leased area, he said. The official said the management of SII had sought the assistance of the DENR to stop the encroachment of illegal loggers in their IFMA area. Saikol said the hauling of the forest products from the site is currently ongoing through the Community Environment and Natural Resources Office (CENRO) in Sultan Kudarat. In a report, CENRO Sultan Kudarat head Jerry Dalauta noted that “a partial hauling” of the seized products was already accomplished by their office. He cited that a total of 7,565 pieces of logs and lumbers equivalent to 140,277 bd.ft. (331cu.m.) have been so far hauled and are now stock piled at the base of the Army’s 601st Brigade in Barangay Kalandagan in Tacurong City. Dalauta admitted that the hauling operations were delayed due to the limited hauling trucks and poor road condition at the site. (Allen V. Estabillo/MindaNews

beauty and life in the environment. Concepcion Grande barangay captain Elmer Baldemoro said the government could better use the funds for the road widening to other projects. Naga City Mayor John Bongat suggested that considering the present width of the road affected by the widening, there is already enough space for a four-lane structure. Bongat suggested that the trees be spared and the space they occupy must instead be designated as lanes on both sides of the road for bicycling and jogging. He said condemning the big, old trees aged from 40 to 60 years will be hard to

accept. In a consultation meeting held at the city development office attended by the DPWH, Department of Environment and Natural Resources and local officials as well as civil society organizations, however, majority of those who attended favored the widening project and the cutting of the hundreds of trees. DPWH officials said that for every tree cut, they will replace it with 50 trees of the same varieties. Arnel Rodriguez, Camarines Sur Provincial Environment and Natural Resources Office chief, said his office will issue the corresponding permit to cut, adding he sees nothing wrong with the

condemnation of the trees to give way to the widening project. But the Naga City People’s Council (NCPC) is not convinced with the need to cut the old-grown trees, which, it said, everyone in Naga City is proud to have along the highway. “What the government is doing is the opposite of its much-vaunted National Greening Program, in which the DENR has boasted to have planted at least 1.5 billion trees, starting in 2011 and to end in 2016,” the NCPC said in a statement. NCPC chair Ramiro Samar said it is very disgusting and frustrating that after planting and attending to the growth of the hundreds of trees lined up along the national road, all of a sudden it comes easy for the government to condemn them to give way to another project in the guise of development. “Is it not the DENR that said, ‘it take years to grow a tree but it takes only a minute to cut a tree’,” Samar said. Samar said the NCPC will oppose the planned cutting of the 651 trees, adding that the NCPC will call for another consultation meeting with agencies involved to get the right solution involving the trees.

The regional DPWH passes the buck FINALLY, the regional office of the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) has spoken. An official at the regional office revealed that the upgrading project of the road from Cagayan de Oro City to Laguindingan in Misamis Oriental is with the DPWH’s Second District Engineer’s office. Engr. Bonie Lora, a staff at the DPWH’s regional office, said that the Cris Diaz upgrading of the road in Alubijid, an adjacent town of Laguindingan, was a project of the DPWH’s Second Engineering District. The problem of the non-completion of the roadupgrading project of the highways from Cagayan de Oro City and Iligan City became an object of public outrage. The public also knew that the upgrading of the road of the Cagayan de Oro-Iligan highways started last year. Until now, the project remains incomplete resulting to public outcry. The opening of the new Laguindingan airport for commercial flights exacerbated the problem when commuters complained about traffic congestion. Obviously, the heavy traffic in the area was due to the unfinished road-upgrading project. Perhaps, unable to withstand the mounting public outrage, the regional office of the DPWH issued a statement sort of “washing its hands” of the responsibility. Engr. Lora said that even the regional office wonders why the completion 1.5-kilometer upgrading of the road remains incomplete. The DPWH said that the road-upgrading project started on March 27, 2013 with a budget allocation of

P 31,617,000 million. The contractor Henry S. Oaminal Construction won the bid in the contract amount of P 29,662,647 million. The completion of the project was on June 24, 2013. Take note, please. The road project started on March 2013 and completion was on June 24, 2013. Again, the regional DPWH office is wondering why the project remains incomplete. Worse, the road upgrading of the 1.5-kilometer highways in Alubijid leading to Laguindingan was only 25 percent complete, the DPWH report said. What is happening? Ask Engr. Noel Oclarit, the District Engineer of the province Second Engineering District. Oclarit should make clarification on the DPWH report. This was the reply of Engr. Lora when asked to shed light in the delay of the completion of the project. Anyway, the commuting public will have the option to file a case (criminal or administrative) with the Ombudsman against the DPWH officials. Certainly, it is not only Oclarit who has the liability in the delay of the completion of the Alubijid project. Even the contractor could not escape indictment in a graft case, if any. Actually, the delay in the completion of the Cagayan de Oro-Iligan road-upgrading project has been an object of criticism from this corner. The critical appraisal of the snail-paced project was due to insistent public complaints of the burden it has caused to commuters. Definitely, it is the right of the public to complain and inquire on the status of government projects. Apart from this, it is also the right of the public to sue government officials who could be guilty of dereliction of duty. After all, the taxpayers’ money pays for government projects.

My dear pals in the UCCP

IN the capitalist order, an order that perfectly reflects what is described in the bible as the human nature which is concretely manifested by human greed, humans are mere tools that the user can discard or dispense with anytime they do not have any use for them anymore. The mindset of the capitalist order views humans as nothing but mere machines used in the generation of wealth. If along the way the human element in the wealth generation process becomes ineffective or not helping in the maximization of what capitalism euphemistically calls as the bottom line, then they are readily dismissed under varying pretexts such

A deeper view Jesse E.L. Bacon II as redundancy. The current labor woes plaguing the Davao Citybased Brokenshire College, a school owned by the United Church of Christ in the Philippines (UCCP), exactly fall under the above situation in a capitalist order. The school recently dismissed 11 of its College of Nursing

Clinical Instructors (CIs) on the ground of redundancy effective the current school year. Expectedly, the school’s labor union protested the dismissal accusing the administration of union busting since their collective bargaining agreement was just signed first quarter of

this year. Since both parties differed greatly in their respective positions, the school operation is now marred by labor unrest. I’ll leave it to the two contending parties to communicate to everyone their respective positions and justify themselves before the clientele they are serving in particular and the public in general. I’ll just focus our discussion of the controversy on how a church-owned institution could behave like any ordinary business enterprise by treating its human resource merely as tools that they can dispense with anytime they want.

Blessing are God’s gift to all of us His beloved children

F resh G ospel of the day: Matthew6:715(June20, 2013-Thursday) Matthew 6:7-15-But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen [do]: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him. After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as [it is] in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for

Biblical reflection Bro. Edcel L. Closas ever. Amen. For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses: In our gospel, we are taught the prayer that we are “used to pray in our daily life,” which is the “OUR FATHER.” Take note, “Jesus never said” that my Father in Heaven, but “He used the word OUR Father.” This means that “Jesus is our brother and we have

the same God.” So therefore, we are all children of God. What are the “effects” for being the children of God? In Romans 8:17-And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with [him], that we may be also glorified together. In this reality, we can realize that “blessings are God’s gift to all of us His beloved children.” In fact, in Jeremiah 29:11-For I know t he

thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. This is all about prosperity of life.

Talking about leadership in school By Filemon Madrangka, Ph.D, San Rafael Elementary School

LEADERSHIP. It’s not a question of who the leader is and who the followers are. That word is not only entitled for the school heads, principals, supervisors, or even superintendents but it is entitled to everyone who manages the school, who definitely is part of the institution. Even, per see, pupils must understand also the value of leadership not only in their classrooms but in the school in general. Good leadership means understanding the fact that you

must be a follower also. Good leadership means thinking the good of all and not for your own. Good leadership indeed, means

overlooking the consequences ahead for every step and action done, thus weighing and considering the good and bad impacts it will bring. At school, a school head is treated as the leader. That every command he will instruct must be obeyed by next in rank that every word he will utter is of truth and confidence. But mind you, being a school head takes so much understanding, takes so much patience, and takes so much effort. As many may perceive

that it is easy because a school head just instructs others, but it is not. It requires study and research and knowledge, it even cut one’s social life. Because merely being a school head is not only looking over 40 pupils but overseeing the whole school, the whole institution. Thus, I may say that leadership is not defined by words, not even measured by works done, but by the heart who is always open to serve, willing to serve. Advertorial

implementation and fund utilization in the DILG regional website. For its part, the city shall submit a certification from a government bank that a trust fund has been opened for the purpose; issue an official receipt corresponding to the amount received; create a PCF Project Implementation Team responsible for the implementation of the project and submit physical and financial accomplishment reports, assessment and evaluation reports, among others within the

prescribed period. The PCF, which is administered by the DILG in collaboration with the Department of Budget and Management (DBM), aims to recognize good governance performance particularly in the adoption of “good housekeeping” along the governance areas of development, planning, sound financial management, transparency and accountability and valuing performance monitoring, as indicated in the MOA.

Ph stocks down 5.6% to 6,513

Philippine share prices slightly declined on Wednesday on lack of market-moving impetus a day ahead of the crucial United States Federal Reserve meeting. The benchmark Philippine Stock Exchange index (PSEi) lost 5.57 points or 0.08 percent to end 6,513.20 from previous day’s 6,518.77 finish. Prior to Wednesday trading, the index rebounded for three straight sessions after sharp losses. Analysts said that players took their cue from indications abroad on little leads at home. The narrower Southeast Asian region is generally in a slump except for a slim 0.9-percent rise in Kuala Lumpur. “With little hints after Day One of the Fed meeting, investors may have opted to book profits earned from the market’s 6.6 percent three-session advance,” said Jun Calaycay of Accord Capital Equities Corp. The Fed began a two-day meeting –the fulcrum of global equity market’s fate- on Tuesday, but was not expected to announce any immediate changes on its current efforts to stimulate the US economy. The market slump was led mainly by mining and oil stocks that decreased 1.61 percent and financials that dropped 1.18 percent. Other counters fell moderately. Only the sub-indice of holding firms rose 0.13 percent. Trading volume reached 1.96 billion shares valued at P7.70 billion. Decliners outnumbered advancers, 80 to 72, while 35 issues were unchanged. philippine news agency

Dear... from page 6

Brokenshire College as a church-owned institution should have a different attitude toward its workers. The institution of learning is expected to combine its pro-human rights advocacy, and advocacy the UCCP is widely known for, and its being part of the body of Christ. In its treatment of its workers, however, Brokenshire College is behaving like any ordinary enterprise whose primary reason for being is to maximize its profit. It is in this regard that Brokenshire College miserably failed in living up to its being a church-owned institution. Redundancy programs availed of by business enterprises of this world should have no place in an institution that claims to be

part of the body of Christ. In availing of this program which is admittedly not contrary to the laws of this world, the school administrators simply embraced the easy path in resolving their internal problems. Undeniably, the enrollment of its College of Nursing had dived down to levels that make that college not profitable anymore if viewed from the capitalist point of view. But over-all enrollment in all colleges and universities in Davao and elsewhere in the country remained practically the same. While many incoming freshmen students did not take up nursing anymore, this does not mean they did not pursue college education anymore. They still went to college. Apparently, Brokenshire College administrators did not prepare for this even-

tuality. This just goes to show their lack of savvy in running a tertiary level institution of learning. They just waited in their own sweet time for the students to come to the college to enroll. They must not have undertaken efforts at enticing incoming freshmen to enroll in their college resulting in the decrease of their enrollment over-all. This failure is indisputably traceable to the school administrators. The main reason for a school administration’s existence is to plan ways by which they can continue to bring in students to their school. Since Brokenshire College is justifying its adoption of the redundancy program to terminate its CIs its dwindling enrollment, this is a tacit admission on their part that over-all their enrollment for the current

school year had dwindled. If it has not dwindled, why did they not assign the 11 CIs to teach general education subjects related to their profession? Why not assign them to the school’s infirmary clinic, which is, by the way, a requirement for all colleges and universities to have? If Brokenshire College truly believes that it is part of the body of Christ, would Christ have approved their move of terminating 11 of their CIs? When the College was awash with nursing students, did the school not maximize the services of these CIs to the fullest? And when the College of Nursing was experiencing boom in its enrollment, did the school not benefit from the revenue it brought in? Why conveniently dismiss now those that greatly helped the school make what it is

AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18) - Job-related concerns are troubling you, but that just means it’s time to redouble your efforts to get something new. That doesn’t necessarily mean a new job, though that might be the easiest way to go. PISCES (February 19 – March 20) - Your instincts need to be heard today -- so give them veto power over all your decisions. You may need to say no to something that sounds too good to be true if your gut says so. ARIES (March 21 – April 19) - You’ve got a lot going on today -- even if things feel extra-slow. There’s plenty of drama just under the surface, and you almost certainly have to do some detective work to figure it all out. TAURUS (April 20 – May 20) - Your intense feelings are getting even deeper today, so make sure that you give yourself time to process them. It can be a really good day, even if you’re in a dark mood, as breakthroughs are more likely. GEMINI (May 21 – June 21) - It’s time to focus on other people -- almost to the exclusion of your own needs. That doesn’t mean you don’t have to eat or stay hydrated, but service is rewarded ten times over today. CANCER (June 22 – July 22) - You are feeling torn between a few different options, none of which really seem to be right for you. Take your time and figure out what’s best -- or if possible, defer the decision for another week.

LEO (July 23 – August 22) - You can tell that there’s more going on with your friends than meets the eye -- but it takes some digging to get to the truth. It’s almost certainly worth it, so do what you can to learn more. VIRGO (August 23 – September 22) - Things are afoot that you don’t fully understand -- but you should still be able to get a clue or two if you dig deeper. Unseen forces still leave traces behind sometimes, and you can pick them up.

BIR collection Gov’t expert insists relocation up P 17B in May of hazard area in New Bataan Davao City – The Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) in Davao has collected P 111 Billion for the month of May 2013, up P 17 Billion compared to last year during the same month. Although the revenue collection improved by 18 percent, the total collection of P 111 Billion is still short of the targeted collection of P 115 Billion for the month of May alone. For May 2013, collections from BIR operations amounted to P 109.51 Billion, P 17.24 Billion 0r 18.69% more than collections made in May 2013. Or, P 1.42 Billion or 1.28% less than the goal set for BIR Operations for May

2013 of P 110.93 Billion, the BIR report said. However, collections from non-BIR operations amounted to only P 2.39 Billion, P 1.80 Billion or 42.9% less than the goal set for May 2013 of P 4.19 Billion. Or P 104 Million or 4.57% more than the collections made in May 2012. Collection by the Regional Office amounts to P 36.08 Billion, or P 7.08 Billion or 24.4% more than the collection made in May 2012.While collections by the large Taxpayers amounted to P 73.42 billion, or P 10.17 Billion or 16.07 more than the collections made in May 2012.

Lizardo revealed based on their disaster assessment, a debris flow occurred in Barangay Andap during typhoon Pablo. He said the flash flood in Barangay Andap during the occurrence of typhoon Pablo was accompanied with several kilometers of stones. Lizardo explained that a debris flow is hard to predict since it changes direction from time to time especially if its former path is already blocked by huge rocks and stones. “The barangay’s location is not suitable for settlement because it is susceptible to debris flow, thus the need for relocation,” he said. Lizardo described the ordeal of the residents of Barangay Andap during the typhoon as unimaginable since as heavy rains and strong winds battered the place, a flash flood occurred carrying with it large stones as big as a bus or with a height as high as nine meters for more than one hour.

DAVAO City--An officer of the Project NOAH (Nationwide Operational Assessment of Hazards) insisted that residents of Barangay Andap, in New Bataan, Compostela Valley have to relocate to safer ground to prevent further loss of lives during flash floods as what happened during typhoon Pablo. Speaking to reporters in the 21st Pagasa-DOST Seminar Workshop for Southern Mediamen, Oscar Victor Lizardo, chief science specialist of Project Noah said Barangay Andap is located in an alluvial fan where the

flow and direction of water and debris during heavy downpour and flash floods are unpredictable. He said relocation is an issue that the local government has to decide. Lizardo said that aside from their office, the National Housing Authority and the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council need to step in to stress the relocation of residents. “The residents must be taken away from that alluvial fond since it is not safe for habitation. It is no longer safe to live there,” he said. Lizardo revealed based on their disaster assessment,

a debris flow occurred in Barangay Andap during typhoon Pablo. He said the flash flood in Barangay Andap during the occurrence of typhoon Pablo was accompanied by several kilometres of stone debris.

Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) and the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) supported by national government agencies, local government units, academe and the private sector. The recent signing of the Bangsamoro Peace Framework Agreement has “ignited the interests of foreign business companies in Asia, specially Japan, on investing in Mindanao” according to DTI Undersecretary Engr. Merly Cruz. “This conference is capitalizing on this interest. We hope this will end up with actual, sizable investments. Mindanao will be able to grow faster with expanding industries fueled by new investments,” Cruz said. The DTI Undersecretary said the conference is also taking advantage of the parallel efforts being made by the Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry which is coming up with some innovative programs to boost investments in the country, particularly in the southern island of Mindanao.

Day care center workers join adventure program

Twenty-three day care center workers from Liloan, Cebu participated in a two-day adventure program facilitated by Ramon Aboitiz Foundation Inc.’s (RAFI) Kool Adventure Camp (KAC) last May 25-26 in Balamban, Cebu. The program aimed to deepen the participants’ understanding of their responsibility and strengthen their commitment in educating and developing responsible and productive citizens among children in their community. The participants accomplished tasks that brought them to different individual and group realizations. They shared and discussed their learning and related them to their actual experience as day care center workers. The day care center workers compared the challenging activities to the difficulties they face on the job—poor facilities, lack of support from the local government and the community, low honorarium, and hard-to-reach location of day care centers—but which they overcome so that their pupils may learn and have an opportunity to a good life in the future. The activity was part of RAFI’s Dolores Aboitiz Children’s Fund (DACF) capacity building program, which aims to improve the
