NEDA-X launches Ambisyon Natin 2040 in CdeO CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY -- The National Economic and Development Authority of Region 10 (NEDA-10) launched Ambisyon Natin 2040 in Cagayan de Oro City on November 21 and 22, 2016 for the business/ industry and the youth/academe cluster, respectively.

He never called the qualified but he qualified the called The Gospel of Jesus Christ (December2, 2016-Friday) Matthew 9:9-13”Follow me. And he arose, and followed him. And it came to pass, as Jesus sat at meat in the house, behold, many publicans and sinners came and sat down with him and his disciples. And when the Pharisees saw [it], they said unto his disciples, Why ate your Master with publicans and sinners? But when Jesus heard [that],
he said unto them, they that be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick. But go ye and learn what [that] meant, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance: Do you associate yourself with the noted sinners? How do you feel? This gospel is focusing on Matthew, the tax collector who is called by Jesus to become His disciple. Who
is Matthew? He was a sinner, traitor and robber of people’s money. He committed sin of extortion and oppression to the poor. But the wonderful point that we can describe in the scenario is; Jesus still chose him to be an apostle. Philosopher says,” he never called the qualified but he qualified the called.” This is the big love of God to all of us sinners. This is what we called, everyone deserves
a 2nd chance. In Isaiah 1:18-come now, and let us reason together, said the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. Why? In Jeremiah 31:3-God loves us so much. Take note, he called all of us whoever you are to serve and glorify him on this earth in whatever capacity and talents that you have. You need to respond to his invitation
for your life. Do not harden your heart because that is the only way for you to be saved at the end. Another point, in Jesus time mercy was selective in the sense of unequal treatment of the people between the rich and the poor but Jesus treated them equally: Printing paid by: Mr. & Mrs. Antonio Jordan – Mr. & Mrs Villent Balino– Cagayan De Oro: # 09187148435: Please have my latest book: To

TEACHING PROFESSION BRING OUT MY BEST By Jenelyn C. Carillo –Teacher III Kibatang Elementary School
I st ar te d to te ach when I’m 23 years old. I graduated in Bachelor Of Elementary Education from one of the school in Cagayan de Oro city and pursue my master’s degree right away after I passed the Licensure Examination for Teachers (LET 2005). Actually teaching is not my first choice of job, due to my varied interest I really wanted / dreamed to become a police official nor to become a doctor of medicine. Unfortunately, I quitted my dream to become a doctor due to
financial reason. Despite of my dreamed to become a police officer, I submitted my requirements in NAPOLCOM, I also submitted my requirement in Department of Education Valencia Division, heating two birds in one stone and I prayed heartily what is the will of God for me. Sometimes we can’t control what is God’s plan for us, the time that I’m busy preparing for my papers to become a police, somebody called me to report in Division of Valencia City. Since that I am devel-
oped personally and socially through different a activities in the community like singing, dancing outreach program; tree planting, blood donation and doing some classroom innovation. Aside from that I am developed professionally through attending different seminar workshop, activities and trainings, career advancement and programs. I managed to perform my assigned tasks. I guess I’m falling in love in teaching profession which profession that is meant to me. I love to teach children and school is my second home. I’ve never
mind some people saying that nobody become rich in teaching profession. What matter most is I am happy and I help the less fortunate children in public school. And there will be no other profession without teachers. So keep on moving hoping that every task I get into would satiate my hunger for learning and advancement. Presently I am continuing master’s degree since the competition is tough nowadays. Teaching is the job that bring out the best of me that maximize and utilized my potential.

comprehensive to responsive civil registration, a Barangay Civil Registration System, Free Delayed Registration Program for unregistered births due to poverty and Free Delayed Registration for Indigenous Peoples.” In the bill’s explanatory note, Fortun said “our current registration system suffers from deficiencies and flaws that deprive individuals of their inherent right to identity recognition as citizens, thereby denying them also of their civil rights.” Fortun submitted that nonregistration of births of millions of Filipino children, adults and indigenous peoples “have consistently been due to poverty, distance and lack of literacy” and “the situation is further exacerbated by some individuals and medical institutions tasked to register these events but delay or refuse to do so because of unpaid financial obligation on the part of the family of the new-born child.” According to the Butuan and Agusan del Norte solon, “This is also true in the case of deaths of persons whose families could not immediately settle in full their obligations to hospital or clinics. These are tantamount to deprivation of rights by reason of poverty.” The bill’s Section 9 provides the establishment of a Barangay Civil Registration System where elected and appointive barangay officials shall have the mandate of assisting in the facilitation of civil registration within their area of jurisdiction. In Section 10 of the proposed measure, local government units are mandated to implement a free delayed registration program for persons whose births have not been registered and certified due to such factors as poverty, distance, or lack of literacy. By reason of their sociocultural, religious peculiarities, registration of Muslim Filipinos, Indigenous Culltural Communities (ICCs) or Indigenous Peoples (IPs) and Children in Need of Special Protection (CNSP) shall be registered as follows: 1) Muslim Filipinos’ civil registration shall be governed by Presidential Decree No. 1083, Executive Order No. 157 and Administrative Order No. 1, Series of 2005; 2) ICCs/IPs civil registration shall be governed by Republic Act No. 8371 and Administrative Order No. 3, Series of 2004; and 3) CNSP civil registration shall follow the procedures provided under the OCRG

DEVELOPING A SCHOOL- COMMUNITY OF PEACE By Jenelyn C. Carillo –Teacher III Kibatang Elementary School
We often hear the word “peace be with you” but do we really apply it in ourselves or in the community. Does it affect the education of our new generation or is it important to all of us? How did we know that the presence of peace is there? We can say that there is peace if there’s an absence of war or other hostilities; there’s an agreement or treaty to end hostilities; there’s an harmonious re-
lations living in peace with each other; there’s a public security and order and most of all has inner contentment, serenity peace of mind. Peace is an attitude and a choice we make. For there to be peace on earth, peace must be viable option for people to choose to work their problems out. It must become so ingrained in our culture and our way of life, that peace becomes a natural reflex. So, the most important
Memorandum Circular 200401 and other promulgations by the OCRG in coordination with the Department of Social Welfare and Development and other concerned agencies. Section 33 sub-titled “NonPayment Not a Ground for Withholding Documents” provides “In no case shall failure to settle hospital bills in full or in part, be a ground for non-delivery or withholding of the certificate of live birth or certificate of death or documents required in the issuance of said certificates.” For Failure to Report Certificate of Live Birth, Section 32 provides “The attending physician, nurse, midwife, hospital administrator or any person in charge of the certificate of live birth and other documents necessary in support thereto in relation therewith who knowingly fails to deliver or withholds the delivery of these documents to the City/Municipal Civil Registrar shall be penalized by imprisonment of not more than six months or a fine ranging from P20,000 to P30,000 or both at the discretion of the court.” The same section also penalizes the attending physician, hospital administrator or any other person in charge of the certificate of death and other documents necessary in support thereto in relation therewith who knowingly fails to deliver or withholds the delivery of these documents in the City/ Municipal Civil Registrar, with imprisonment of not more than six months or a fine ranging from P20,000 to P30,000 or both at the discretion of the court.

thing we can do to spread peace is to help popularize peace. Make it part of our culture and our collective consciousness. Live peace, Share Peace, Teach Peace… Peace begins with us. First, each of us must find inner peace- a sense of calmness, security, joy, and love, flowing in a moment that has no beginning and no end. Peace in mind is a well of strength that we can return to again and again as we try to live peaceful lives. Our actions; the way we live our
lives will say about how we feel about peace. But words speak loudly, too. The ideas of cooperation, non-violence, kindness and unspoken wish for peace on earth are all part of our subconscious desires. Words help shape our attitude and perception. We must help make PEACE a foundation in our culture so that we can grow and build upon that foundation and work together to create visions and plans to strive for peace.
