Solons berate Duterte LAWMAKERS belonging to the Alliance of Concern Teachers (ACT) partylist yesterday slammed President Rodrigo Duterte’s treat to human rights activists critical of extra judicial killings amid the government’s anti-drug war, saying that he should address the criticisms they air rather than threaten to kill them and blame them for the proliferation of drugs. “Blaming the country’s problems on presidential critics and threatening them with harm is reminiscent of Marcos.

Stakeholders split on merits of WESM ON Energy for Mindanao

By Mike Baños, Editor at large

GENERATION companies and the Department of Energy are renewing their call for Wholesale Electricity Spot Market in Mindanao with the emergence of excess electricity supply in the grid but consumers are wary this would instead lead to an increase in power rates. Energy Secretary Alfonso G. Cusi said a spot market in the Mindanao grid would efficiently utilize the excess capacities of new power plants not covered by bilateral contracts with distribution utilities and directly connected industries. In his message to the Association of Mindanao Rural Electric Cooperatives, Inc. (AMRECO) Summit in Cagayan de Oro City last week, Cusi said a WESM in Mindanao “runs parallel with President Rodrigo Duterte’s twin priorities of fully addressing the power

Students of state-owned colleges to get free tuition

CLOSE to a million students of state colleges and universities (SUCs) will not pay tuition next year if Minority Leader Ralph Recto’s amendment to the 2017 national budget to exempt them from basic matriculation will be carried in the final version of the P3.35 trillion spending measure. Recto’s amendment to appropriate P8 billion to cover tuition cost of SUCs imposing the anti-jaywalking law under the city’s Comprehensive Transport and Traf- enrollees is included in the Senate version of the fic Code.

Duterte sees no need to declare unilateral ceasefire Friday, December 2, 2016

By Lilian C. Mellejor of PNA

DAVAO City--President Rodrigo Duterte is not declaring another ceasefire with the Communist Party of the PhilippinesNational Democratic Front and its armed wing, the New People’s Army, saying, “The (existing) unilateral ceasefire remains.” “No. I am not declaring a unilateral ceasefire. Sa komunista (With the communist?)? It remains, it is holding and I’m happy,” the President told reporters shortly after visiting wounded soldiers in Camp Evangelista in Cagayan de Oro City.

Last August 25, Mr. Duterte declared a ceasefire with the NPA to attain peace in the country. The President has also ordered the Philippine National Police (PNP) and the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) to avoid offensive operations against the NPA rebels. The declaration of the unilateral ceasefire was a move based on a consensus with all the commanding generals of the AFP, including Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana. “As president, my main task is to seek peace for my country. I am not a president who would enjoy waging war against citizens

of this republic. It pains me to see people dying for an ideology. Pwede naman pala mapag-usapan ng mapayapa (That we can talk about this peacefully). Just like now,” he emphasized. The government’s unilateral ceasefire was responded by the NDF during the resumption of the talks last August. While the existing unilateral ceasefires of the government and NPA are holding, government peace panel Chairperson Silvestre Bello III is hopeful these would lead into the final signing of the bilateral ceasefire which was initially expected to happen on December 10. Bello, however, hinted on Wednesday that the bilateral ceasefire would not happen on December 10 because there is no consensus yet between the GRP and NDF committees working on the bilateral truce. He said the two committees are working on the definition of terms and conditions. “But what is important is patuloy ang pag-uusap (we continue to talk),” Bello told reporters during Wednesday’s Kapehan sa Dabaw at the Royal Mandaya Hotel. Earlier, Atty. Angela Librado, a member of the GRP panel and head of the committee working on the

bilateral ceasefire, said there is no assurance the bilateral ceasefire will be signed by December 10 supposedly coinciding with the World Humanitarian Day. According to her, the first deadline for the bilateral ceasefire was on October 26 but this has lapsed because of an impasse for lack of consensus on the definition of terms. “There are definitions and terms that have to be agreed on. If these things are ironed out then we can

discuss the bilateral ceasefire,” she said. The GRP panel has already prepared its guidelines based on the exchanges made during the Oslo meeting but there are things that have to be ironed out and revised, Librado said. Among these is the definition of what would constitute hostile acts because both parties have different definitions “and we have to reconcile that otherwise, we won’t be able to come up with a bilateral agreement.”

Librado said it is not a simple issue of defining terminologies as they have to make sure it will reflect the interest of those who would be affected so there must be consultations. “If we can’t finalize and don’t agree on terms and provisions of course there will be no bilateral ceasefire but we are positive things could work out well. It could be December 10 or maybe later but a bilateral ceasefire agreement would be signed,” she stressed. (PNA)

Duterte offers peace to Maute group, Commander Bravo BUTIG, Lanao del Sur (MindaNews / 30 Nov) – Flanked by his generals, President Rodrigo Duterte offered the Maute terror group as well as the maverick leader of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front in this province the olive branch of peace. Duterte said talking peace is better than waging war that would affect the Moro people, his strong supporters in the past elections, and the rest of the country. “It is easy to start a war but it would be harder to end the fighting,” Duterte told soldiers gathered at the Tactical Command Post of the Army’s 103rd Infantry Brigade here. Close supporters of Duterte told MindaNews that they are looking for avenues of communication to the Maute group and MILF commander Abduhrahman Macapaar alias Commander Bravo.

President Duterte said he tried to communicate with the Maute group but realized the rebels were determined to establish a caliphate in Mindanao in pursuance with goals of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS). He said the group has terrorized the residents of Butig by engaging in carjacking, kidnapping and harvesting their agricultural products. As for Bravo, Duterte said he received information that the MILF commander is also engaged in kidnappings and providing protection to drug syndicates. “I have been trying to talk to him since the beginning but he has become intransigence. It appears he is losing hope in the government,” Duterte said. He ignored threats and the critical situation in Butig to come here and visit the troops fighting the

Maute group for the past two weeks. Last Monday, seven personnel of the Presidential Security Group and two other soldiers from another Army unit were wounded when roadside bombs hit their military convoy in Barangay Matampay, Marawi City. Duterte said this kind of violence should end but he warned the Maute group and Bravo that there is a timetable for his gesture of peace. “I can be harsh. Right now the fight will be against drugs and terrorism,” he said. Col.

MIJIE JUAT MAY IGLECIAS Account Executives

EDITORIAL ALLAN M. MEDIANTE Editor-in-Chief

HUMAN resources, infrastructures, openness, and narcotic problem were discussed. I was amazed when the UK Ambassador, Mr. HE. Moazzam visited my college on November 24, 2016. He is the ambassador for ASEAN, Indonesia, and Timor Leste. He visited my college for delivering a speech related to any possible cooperation for developing the Indonesia Universities, including providing scholarships. The discussion was so intense and fruitful. Some lecturers and students attended the discussion at that time. The theme chosen was Building Indonesia’s Competitiveness in the Era of Globalization. All the attendants were so enthusiastic and the discussion was so engaging. There are some points to learn from the discussion. First of all, if the ASEAN countries, especially Indonesia, want to increase its competitiveness, they should increase the human resources’ quality. Indonesia can be more and more competitive compared to other countries, if it has the best quality of human resources. So, any schools or colleges in this country

Dr. Djuwari

should improve the education systems in response to the need for getting qualified human resources. It is evident that any country with good quality in human resources can get its competitiveness. Industrialized countries or the developed countries gain their competitiveness because they have better quality of their human resources. On the contrary, any country with very low quality of human resources tends to be left behind in any aspects. In other words, they are always in the low level in any advancement such as technology, education, and science as well. Secondly, all the countries having great infrastructures can also be more competitive. They get their competitiveness because

they can do any project more efficiently. There are some evidences showing that the country with its best infrastructures is always prosperous. Unlike the countries with best infrastructures, the countries being lack of infrastructures are in poor condition in any aspects. We can eyewitness when looking at any country which spends the most efficient in any project. Using the best infrastructures, they can minimize the cost and finish any job the fastest. Spending less cost and finishing the job in less time can make the country more and more competitive. So, better infrastructues are required if the country wants to increase its competitiveness. The third, Indonesia and other ASEAN countries should emphasize the openness. All policies made by the government should be open to public. This can reduce the information asymmetry. Besides that, the governments should also make ease all the investment permits, regarding the business and its arrangement. Last but the most striking idea is related to drug or narcotic. According to the Ambassador, Mr. HE

Moazzam, to solve the narcotic problem will never be effective if it is done by shooting dead. The best panacea, according to him is by educating and being more persuasive. Yet, Indonesia had shot dead the drug lords recently. And of course, there are many countries against this alternative strategy. Narcotic problem and the future generation are more complicated. This problem is so critical that the way how to curb it tends to be controversial. Many people also shout that murdering even a single soul is considered against the human rights. It is really very complicated. ••• Dr. Djuwari is the Head of Research Journal Publication Management at STIE Perbanas Surabaya. He is also the guest lecturer at Ottimmo International Master-gourmet Academy, Surabaya; The advisor of Indonesia Association of Press Practitioners/ Journalists in East Java province (HIPSI), Indonesia. He is also the president of the International Association of Scholarly Publishers, Editors, and Reviewers (IASPER)

their movements, are this: bringing our country closer and closer to anarchy, lawlessness, chaos, disorder, rebellion, disobedience to duly-constituted authorities and lawfully-issued orders, and, because of all these, rampant criminality. Imagine, they were the ones who brought the issue of Marcos being buried at the Libingan with the Supreme Court. One would think because they invoked the jurisdiction and authority of the highest court of the land, they would obey and follow what the Supreme Court will say. Yet, notwithstanding the clear ruling of the tribunal in their own petition, which was based on the law and then concurred in by nine of the 15 justices, anti-Marcos forces not only refused to recognize that ruling but are, just like what they have been doing the past week, even enticing or encouraging Filipinos to similarly disrespect, disobey, and reject the court’s ruling. Clearly, anti-Marcos forces do not respect the law and the duly-constituted authorities, just like what they did in 1986. They are only interested to uphold their own selfish interests, accepting only the ruling that favors them. This is the reason why many of our countrymen are now similarly rebellious and disobedient of the courts and of the authorities. AntiMarcos forces have made Filipinos rebels! -ooo-

SE C ON D WOR L D WAR: A WAR OF SPIRITUAL FAITH: During the Second World War in the 1940s, the battle lines were drawn not only between those who believed in democracy and those who adhered to other systems of government. That war was in reality a war of spiritual faith---between those who believed in God (the Americans, British, French) and those who did not believe in God (the Japanese, Italians, and Germans). My view is that God intervened in that war, so that those His believers will win (in much the same way He intervened in many wars in the past for His believers) against those who did not believe in Him. How was God’s intervention made? He instilled in the minds of His believers in that war that they would have to put up a military force in the “east”, in a “far-off land” to defeat their enemies. What was the military force? Where was that “east”, and “far-off land”?

cos rallies continued to be diminutive in number. I mean, even if we assume, for the sake of argument, that there were 10,000 people who joined the anti-Marcos rallies on Wednesday (10,000 is, of course, a bloated figure already), that is still minuscule if we take into account that, at present, there are now around 110 million Filipinos nationwide. Those who ranted against Marcos did not even comprise .01 percent of the whole population. What does this mean? It means the anti-Marcos forces, then as now, do not really have the support of the majority of the Filipino nation. They remain as they were in 1986---insignificant in number, although admittedly noisy and boisterous and ridiculously self-righteous. -oooANTI-MARCOS FORCES MADE REBELS OF FILIPINOS: And come to think of it, the only things that these anti-Marcos forces have achieved, in all

The power of symbolic reality By William R. Adan of MindaNews

NAAWAN, Misamis Oriental--Material existence is not the only reality. In many occasions the symbolism of an act turned out to be more “real” than what actually happened reckoned on how it impacts on the lives of humans. The symbolism of an act more than the act may tell a valueladen story of immeasurable dimensions and consequences. For instance, how do you think the President would react if his life-size image with the Filipino flag were together trampled upon and shredded into pieces by Islamic militants? Do you think he would simply say “no problem; it’s just a tarpaulin and a piece of cloth?” What would be your pleasure if while on the way to church someone grabbed your Bible and spit on it? I don’t believe you would simply react saying “go ahead; it’s just a book anyway” and simply walk away. Symbols are real by themselves. They divide mankind; drive nations into senseless, devastating wars; and push individuals to committing atrocious acts. Burying the world-known thief, plunderer and human rights violator Marcos in the nation’s heroes cemetery doesn’t make the villain automatically a hero. But the act is pregnant with symbolism. It is one successful giant step of the Marcoses in rewriting history projecting their patriarch into the future as a hero which by any standard he never was. Worse is that it sends wrong signal to the youth and future generations that crime does pay. Moreover, it makes us Filipino a laughingstock in the world community for what would appear as our stupidity and twisted sense of justice. (MindaViews is the opinion section of MindaNews. William R.

Vindictiveness without cause is injustice “GREAT achievement often requires long, tortuous, bitter experiences. One has to resist ruthless persecution physically and mentally; win complete mastery of himself. One must rise above disappointment, neglect and sorrow. Through loneliness of spirit one learns to understand the wisdom of the universe. Often you may have to make the bitter choice. Then, when you do all in your power, the divine force will help to your goal,” according to an Anonymous writer. The election of City Mayor Celso G. Regencia, the first unpopular politician in the city’s political landscape, has made surprises among traditional politicians. His election was considered phenomenal... could be the first of its kind in the city’s political annals. Because of jealously from our local traditional politicians: almost all members of the SP, had falsely accused City Mayor Celso G. Regencia that catapulted for his suspension for six (6) months, even devoid of legal appro-

priateness. In other words, he has undergone baptism of bitter experiences. He was suspended of following the letter of the law, specifically Section 77 of Republic 7160, otherwise known as Local Government Code of the Philippines, which states: “The Chief Executive of every local government unit shall be responsible for human resources and development in his office and shall take all personnel actions in accordance with the Constitutional provisions on the Civil Service Commission may establish: Provided, the local chief executive may employ emer-

gency or casual employees or laborers paid on daily wage or piece work basis and hired through job orders for local projects authorized by the Sangguniang concerned without need of the approval or attestation by the Civil Service Commission: Provided, further, that the period of employment of emergency or casual or laborers as provided in this Section shall not exceed six (6) months. This subject Section pertains to employments where there is no employer-employee relationship which are under COA laws, rules and regulations. Thus the City Vice Mayor may appoint casual and contractual employees for his office and the Sangguniang Panlungsod whose appointment is covered by CSC rules, but cannot employ emergency or casual employees or laborers hired through job orders and/or contract of services whose manner of employment is governed by the COA rules, where there is no employer-employee relationship because that is

reserved to the Local Chief Executive (LCE).” But why in heavens’ name that he was suspended for six (6) months? Could his suspension be politically motivated? Of course, yes! That is a glaring “POWER GRABBING!” His political adversaries had shamefully usurped the people’s mandate. They are likened to Lucifer rebellious attitude towards God by declaring himself like God. And, yet, despite of all difficulties and odds he encountered, he is clothed with courage and determination, and with a Davidic optimism, and even granting that the prospect of winning his battle is dim and yet he continues to fight. Sometimes he stumbles and yet he stands up to continue with his fight fearlessly . . . ultimately, he won the battle on his suspension order . . . but too late anyway. As a victim then of their devilish stupidity, the act so inhuman to consider, how could he, City Mayor Celso G. Regencia, be able to move on beyond such See INUSTICE, page A11

Fiesta in honor of the Queen of the Most Holy Rosary. Most of the PGO officials and employees were the ones who planted the mahogany trees seven years ago, or on June 25, 2009. The Provincial Environment and Natural Resources Office (PENRO) in the area attributed the high survival rate of said mahogany trees on the visit, inspection and maintenance that the employees regularly conduct after the tree planting activity. Provincial Administrator Virgilia Allones emphasized the significance of the mahogany trees as she also lauded the efforts of PGO officials and employees in maintaining the tress until they are fully grown and provided comfort at the complex. “We can do another like this, under the trees

The MILF, following the ceasefire protocol, have withdrawn its fighters from Camp Palestine to avoid a misencounter with government troops. The two-week old fighting has forced the evacuation of 2,450 families or 12,500 persons from eight barangays in Butig. Butig Mayor Dimnatang Pansar said many of the evacuees are living with their relatives in Marawi City and adjoining towns. (Froilan Gallardo / MindaNews)

Canadian-backed mining firm acquires rights over vital small-scale site in Socot GENERAL Santos City--A Canadian-backed mining company operating a gold and silver mining project in T’boli town in South Cotabato has acquired the rights over a vital small-scale mining site, ending nearly two decades of dispute with local miners. Constancio Paye Jr., Mines and Geosciences Bureau (MGB) Region 12 director, said Thursday that TMC-Tribal Mining Corporation specifically purchased and acquired the rights over small-scale mine tunnels in portions of the gold rush area in Barangay Kematu in T’boli town. He said the move was based on an agreement forged by the company with the Maguan Clan SmallScale Mining Association and the T’boli Minahang Bayan Multi-Purpose Cooperative (TMBMPC). The agreement was signed by TMC president and chief executive officer Eumir Ernesto Tiamzon, TMBMPC chair Esther Daquil, and Maguan clan elder Juaning Maguan, he said.

PH under ‘terror alert level 3’

Terror alert level 3 was raised nationwide after the arrest of two suspected terrorists allegedly behind the foiled bombing attempt near the United States Embassy in Manila last Monday. In a press conference in Camp Crame, Quezon City on Thursday, Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Director

OROFIESTA TRADING SERVICES, INC. TEL. #S: 0998-991-3742 - Smart / 0917-720-3742 - Globe

PURCHASING OFFICER

General Ronald “Bato” Dela Rosa said that because of the “full alert status”, the public should expect a stricter implementation of security measures, especially on the conduct of “random and mobile checkpoints”. Dela Rosa also advised the public to be “alert, vigilant and observant” but not to “panic.” The PNP chief said the public has nothing to be worried about even if the terror alert level 3 is raised nationwide. Dela Rosa also issued directives to the regional police directors to intensify security measures in highly-urbanized cities. Meanwhile, Dela Rosa presented to mediamen two of the five suspects in the attempted bombing. The two suspects were identified as Rayson “Rasid” Kilala Sakdal and Jiaher Guinar. Dela Rosa said Rasid is a returnee to the Islamic faith

and a religious preacher in Bulacan. He was the one who placed the IED inside a trash bin while Guinar was assigned as the trigger man. Rasid himself admitted that their first target was Luneta Park but they were “bothered by their conscience” and instead planted the IED near the US Embassy. The suspects’ three accomplices transported the IED from Central Mindanao to Metro Manila, Dela Rosa said. He said the two suspects are members of the Ansar Khalifa terror group, which has direct links with the Maute terror group that is now the center of military operations in Butig, Lanao del Sur. The PNP is now hunting down the three accomplices of Rasid and Guinar who are believed to have returned to Marawi City, Lanao del Sur. (Perfecto T. Raymundo Jr. / PNA)

Modern Technology a Must in Today’s Learning Process

Teacher’s Outcry on Lesson Plans End with Daily Lesson Logs

Lesson Plan (LP) is vital in the teaching-learning process. It is said that a teacher’s blue print or guide on what to do in every learning episode so that no one would get lost in his lesson. On the other hand, it gives proper direction to make teaching meaningful and worthwhile. Moreover, provides the teacher in many ways

disclosed but an MGB12 statement said TMC has acquired the “rights of small-scale mining tunnels inside the drain tunnels” of the Maguan clan and the TMBMPC. The mine tunnels of the Maguan clan and TMBMPC form part of the 21-hectare declared people’s smallscale mining area or Minahang Bayan in Barangay Kematu. But the mining area is within the 84.98-hectare Mineral Production Sharing Agreement (MPSA) of the TMC. Records show that the Minahang Bayan was declared by the South Cotabato Provincial Mining Regulatory Board (PMRB) in 1995 based on provisions

to keep teaching process not monotonous and redundant. In spite of its essentiality in teaching, teachers then are clamoring to relinquish in making the lesson plan. Accordingly, doing it every day is very tedious because more time is consumed rather than spending it in making instructional materials which teachers’ believe that it is essential tool in the

Teacher’s Guide. Furthermore, it gives the teachers ample time doing other meaningful teaching –related tasks, which include preparing instructional materials, assessing learners’ portfolios and conducting learning interventions. Indeed, teachers are now happy that finally the boredom of making the LP’s is now tone down and replaced with Teacher’s Daily Lesson Logs (DLL).

of Republic Act 7076 or the People’s Small-Scale Mining Act. TMC’s MPSA No. 09097-XI was issued by the MGB on November 20, 1997. Paye said TMC and the small-scale miners practically operated on the same area for many years. But he said disputes eventually arose among the operators and cases were filed in local trial courts. Along with the PMRB, he said they initiated negotiations among involved parties “to enjoy mutual co-existence but was hard to achieve.” “(But) with the new development, a friendly and peaceful climate will now be attained in the area,” Paye said in a statement. The official said they expect that the agreement

will result to “mutual trust and peaceful cohabitation” among the parties – TMC, the T’boli tribal residents and local communities. “This will eventually increase investor confidence on the mining industry in the area,” he added. TMC is currently conducting explorations within the mining area for its planned large-scale gold and silver mining venture. The company is supported by Canadian firm Cadan Resources Corporation, which formally changed its name in October to Rizal Resources Corporation. Cadan earlier disclosed that the T’boli project holds potential deposits of around 3.8 million tons, containing 1.1 million ounces (Moz) of gold and 3.3 Moz of silver. (MindaNews)

Today, learning is not what it used to be. Mo der n te chnolog y has taken a prevalent role in today’s classroom. Teachers used technology as aid in their in teaching the learning process and this increased as years go by. Why is it so? Accordingly, studies revealed that the use of technology, which became an essential part of the classroom activity made teachers see a positive impact on the learner’s performance. Thus, pursuant to DO # 75 s. 2016, the DepEd Computerization Program (DCP) nationwide implementation has b een strengthened for several years. This program was launched in 2008 with a budget of P74 million, and has been increased this year 2016 to P6.82 billion. Mr. Gil Camporazo in his “random thoughts,” said: “DepEd set an ambitious target of covering all elementar y and high schools with a 5-year replacement period. Schools without electricity were given allocation based on a

configuration agreed upon with the Department of Energy. “We also indexed a provision to enrolment where bigger enrolment receives more packages based on a defined ratio (e.g. one package of computers per six sections). Camaman-an Elementar y School, as recipient to this program in 2011, has been enjoying the first release and grateful for the replacement package for this year. The package consists of the following: 3 laptops, 1 projector, 1 multimedia speaker, 4 hosts PCs, 24 thin Clients, 2 48’ LED TV (with wall mount ) under the supervision of school ICT coordinator, Ms. Dina T. Bantug and school head, Mr. Candolyn L. Quilit. Technology has come a long way in assisting education, especially as it relates to teachinglearning. The Philippine education keeps on innovating and updating its system, and is true to its mission to produce globally competitive, productive and skilled individuals in the 21st century.

Performing better in Araling Panlipunan through Education For All (EFA) By FLORA A. WABE Teacher III Initao National Comprehensive High School

The reform of secondary education has been a fundamental part of national educational policy in Philippines. With this, students’ performance in Araling Panlipunan subject will greatly enhances . Along with the decentralization of responsibilities to provinces and a new structure of primary and secondary education, changes have affected the areas of curriculum design, teaching methods, teacher training, school management, and information and evaluation systems. Quality

of education is one of the country’s key education objectives – alongside universal education up to lower secondary level, access to life-long learning, community participation and improved resource management. Analysis of education expenditure confirms continued prioritization of investment in infrastructure rather than in innovative child-friendly methodologies to foster children’s cognitive, emotional and social abilities. Moreover, a worryingly low proportion was allocated to developing teaching methods and an

interactive learning environment. School children should not simply be regarded as passive recipients of education services, but as actors with important insights into how the curriculum could be made more relevant to their lives. Today, enormous challenges remain. They include: • low basic skills acquisition • a narrow focus on scholastic achievement by teacher using traditional teaching methods which fail to encourage interactive learning • under-investment in education ’software’ – curricula, teacher training, classroom resources and

educational materials • limited early child development (ECD) coverage • unequal access to education for poor, disabled and ethnic minority children • children failing to perform well due to inadequate nutrition. In general, the implementation of the reform has been characterized by a new form of relationships between the national and provincial ministries of education, the support of international organizations (like the World Bank, IDB and UNESCO), and the opposition of teachers’ unions.

Digital Technology: It’s Impact to Alternative Learning System By Ellen L. Balo Teacher-III Cabalantian Elementary School- Manticao District

Digital technology influenced us in every facet of our lives. Many of our activities nowadays are governed by technology for instance in communication it is made easy and convenient, learning and research wouldn’t be difficult nevertheless in medicine it plays a vital role in saving human lives.

In this context, digital learning is utilized as one of the alternative learning mode to address problems on dropouts and poverty likewise to reduce out-ofschool youths. Technology here serves as vehicle in providing the instructions needed which is tantamount to formal schooling. Student-teacher interaction

is through virtual mode nonetheless exchange of ideas and opinions are oneon-one fashion of teaching styles. This alternative mode is then effective to students who are under Alternative Learning System (ALS), considering the fact that most of them are busy and working yet they do not have time for formal instruction. This approach students may choose at their own conve-

nient time likewise tutors may adjust thus to go with the student. Indeed, this style of learning helps to address the government’s dream in reaching its target to provide education for all. Using this educational delivery mode provides out-of-school youths to develop their God-given talents and turn them into proactive members of the society.

Technology-assisted Instructions By Grace L. PeÑalosa, East City Central School

There are so many ways in which faculty are using computers to assist in teaching and learning. Instead of writing on the board, the instructor or a student takes notes on the computer, and projects this onto the screen so the whole class can see this. This enables the students to read what has been written more easily than the instructor’s handwriting. This can then be saved as a record of class (summary of class discussion or group work) then emailed to the whole class . Students can work in small groups and use laptop computers to take notes on their group’s discussions (replacing the use of poster paper or handwritten overhead transparencies). When they share their group’s findings with the whole class, they copy their work to disk and bring it up to the front of the class to project using the instructor’s computer. The PowerPoint program replaces slides, pre-prepared overhead transparencies, and even video. Through the Power Point one can create own presentations for

class. It create individual presentations for class Students create PowerPoint presentations to give presentations in class and for presenting assignments The Internet, outside of class, can research required readings (The teacher can have students read specific web pages as assignments). The advantage of modern technology is that Instructors can integrate web sites into teaching of lesson, and have them project sites on the screen. Schools are suggested to have students use specific sites during class, either working in groups, using their laptops, or in computer lab, with one or two students per computer. Having students integrate web sites into class presentations are much more convenient. Teachers can also guide students in creating their own web pages. This will enable students to create on-line portfolios of their work. It can enable the class to develop a bank on particular tasks or topics. It is a means for students to share their work with peers (for group assignments) or with the instructor. Class e-mail alias: The

creation of a class email would enable the instructor to provide updates and reminders to students. Instructors can easily e-mail students the copies of work developed in class (e.g. instead of writing on the board, instructor or a student takes notes summarizing class discussion or group work, and then this is e-mailed to the whole class). There may be some minor obstacles or concerns about using computers as teaching and learning tools. These may be due to Classroom set-up. Room arrangement and size makes it difficult to bring in a computer cart or for all students to be able to see the screen. Lighting problem is that the classroom may be too lighted by sunlight so that the screen can’t be seen. Put-up window blinds or curtains. Turn all lights on or all off. All on is too bright, and all off is too dark (students can’t see instructor, each other, and/or their notes). Another problem is the signal or no ethernet connections for students, so that they cannot access the Internet during class for purposes of group or individual work. Internet Problems may include slow or unreliable

connection to. Instructors need to be able to make connections to access course site, outside sites, and internet servers. Quality of web sites: Students are still not discerning consumers and are not differentiating between reputable and poor sites. O ve r rel i anc e on the Internet in making research (many are not using the library at all), and students are plagiarizing work from the Internet. Creating computer based materials for class is very time consuming, especially for beginning users and learning the necessary skills and keeping up-to-date is very time consuming also. Even if an instructor has a course web site online, maintaining it is time consuming (especially checking to see that external links are working and monitoring online class discussions). A warning is that instructors or teachers may become over-reliant on use of computers as a teaching tool . This may compromise teaching and learning effectiveness. Let technolog y only assist instructions. It is the person who is the effective teacher.

ART WALL

By Rico B. Fabre Teacher III Initao National Comprehensive High School

Upon implementation of the k to 12 curriculum in the Philippines, music, art , physical education, and Health were categorized into each subject component and considered as one subject area as MAPEH. Based on my observation Students do not show creativeness in their work and most of them have messy art work. Their output reflects in their attitude since they do not want to spare more time in doing creative things. Most of my students do not know how to draw a basic drawing and that their knowledge about art is limited only to drawing as an art. They have no idea that painting, calligraphy, and origami is also an art. I also observed that they have poor knowledge and skills in expressing the ele-

ments of art such as line, color, texture, and proportion. They lack deeper understanding of art thus, they cannot expressed ideas from their imagination in art form. With the art wall, I have seen the changes in attitudes of my students towards learning art. They learn to appreciate the artworks in different places and time, they can distinguish the excellent art work of Asian countries. I could see the deeper learning of knowledge from different domain of learning, whether cognitive, affective, and psychomotor. They learn the first hand experienced of using brush from Japanese painting to Chinese painting. In doing the origami, I watch how they developed patience and creativity.

Classroom management By ANNA LORAINE V. AROJA Teacher I Imbatug Central Elementary School

CLASSROOM management is the process by which teachers and schools create and maintain appropriate behavior of students in classroom settings. The purpose of implementing classroom management strategies is to enhance pro-social behavior and increase student academic engagement. Effective classroom management principles work across almost all subject areas and grade levels. When using a tiered model in which school-wide support is provided at the universal level, classroom behavior management programs have shown to be effective for 80 to 85 percent of all students. More intensive programs may be needed for some students. Effective classroom management establishes and sustains an orderly en-

vironment in the classroom, increases meaningful academic learning and facilitates social and emotional growth and decreases negative behaviors and increases time spent academically engaged. Therefore, it is important to use effective classroom management strategies at the universal level in a tiered model as they serve as both prevention and intervention methods that promote positive outcomes for students. Classroom management systems are effective because they increase student success by creating an orderly learning environment that enhances students’ academic skills and competencies as well as their social and emotional development. Classroom management systems are most effective when they adhere to basic principles.

The quest for education by PWDs By JESSILIN CENTINO ORINO Teacher I Mitazan Integrated School Aloran District

EDUCATION is the fundamental building block of development. It leads to an improved quality of life, employment, social acceptance and inclusion, national development and intellectual growth. Over the past decade, multiple efforts and initiatives associated with policy and program towards achieving the goal of education have taken place. However, there are still millions of children with disabilities and students who are struggling to access basic and higher education and for whom economic independence appears to be an elusive dream. The 2011 census figures show that the literacy rates

for persons with disabilities are much lower than that of the non-disabled population of the country and even within that, certain disabilities and women across disabilities have a lower percentage. The issues faced by children with different disabilities vary. For instance, in the case of children with print impairment, there is need for aggressive implementation of schemes to provide assistance technology since most disabled students do not have access to technologies in most states. Students who are blind are dependent upon Braille materials which often do not reach them before half the school term is over.

abuse and injustice without turning bitter? His adversaries not contented of his suspension, another false accusation so brutal has put him in the dungeon, but not destroyed him by despair and sorrow and, instead, he only hope with much optimism that very soon he would come out a winner again, for the truth will always prevail in the end, even how treacherous and cruel should his adversaries are. We know for a fact that some people like to snatch victory from the victors’ mouth, from one who won in a clean and honest election. So that in that instant case then, Celso‘s struggle had shown courage beyond mental self-preservation. For he is not only fighting against his political adversaries and blocking walls along his way, but he is also fighting the terror of injustice, arm only with faith in God as his weapon: win or loss, risking his life for a good fight, of course, for the good of Iligan City. How could he be able to loss his battle if God be with him anyway? I wish to remind those defeated candidates for City Mayor, City Vice-Mayor and councilors that virtue cannot exist to a man without virtue, and virtue then is the only foundation of a public servant. Virtue is more clearly shown in perseverance, courage and determination and faith from treacherous motives of self-centered and powergrabber politicians. It is believed, and a fact conclusive at that, that one can take a wrong turn even when surrounded by thickets of truths. Often times we are the enemy for our weaknesses, our frailties, and our readiness to temporize and compromise; to bicker among ourselves, to drawn out the reproving of a small voices of our own conscience with orgies of noisy celebration, when there are battles still to be fought and pursued. We are our own foes. But those sacrifices and expected triumphs on the way to victory is being fought courageously and with determination and faith in God by City Mayor Cellos G. Regencia. It could be a so significant sign post of a brave man that would endeavor to transcend such wretchedness, although hard to overcome, but he has the determination and faith in God, like David fighting impregnable Goliath, that would assure him to win all the devilish treachery and cruelty of his political adversaries he is now facing in. The battle he is fighting for will be won even the hard way, because he has no doubt in his heart, only faith in God to win his battle, although intense . . . only with brave heart will continue to fight . . . no surrender. City Mayor Celso G. Regencia will win

his battle although the hard way. Accordingly, “in moods of discouragement and despair, never forget that the sunshine will ultimately come back, that its absence never is permanent. Hang on your faith, knowing that soon you will rise into the sunshine again,” as what Norman Vincent Peale once said. Yes, you will rise to sunshine again City Mayor Celso G. Regencia because of your faith in God, thus your prayer and perseverance cannot just be taken for granted. Your exoneration may have been delayed, but, mind you, God is faithful . . . He has not had any failure at all . . . and will not fail you. Most certainly, justice that you have been waiting for will be in the offing . . . as sure as the rising of the sun tomorrow morning. Remember, hope springs eternal. Political adversaries of City Mayor Celso G. Regencia, please be reminded on this: “Amend your ways and your doings, and obey the voice of the Lord your God, then the Lord will relent concerning the doom (political doom) that He has pronounced against you” (Jeremiah 26:13). Since you failed to heed God’s warning, you are now facing the brutal consequences of your failure. Imagine, perpetual disqualification from holding public office. (AGREE OR DISAGREE! Demosthenes P. Maglasang, Sr., City Information staff, Office of the City Mayor).

The fund will be distributed among 114 SUCs based on the amount of tuition each school is projected to collect next year as reported in the Budget of Expenditures and Sources of Financing (BESF) document. For 2017, forecast SUCs’ earnings from tuition is P7.78 billion out of total expected internally-generated income of P 17.62 billion. Recto explained the P8 billion will fund “free tuition” and will not cover other school fees like dormitory use and laboratory fees. Recto said the “free tuition fund” will guarantee that students from poor farming and fishing families, and from the urban poor will not shell out money for basic matriculation. Covered by this endowment, he explained, are “students coming from 4P families, thus guaranteeing that the ‘last mile’ in their search for education is partially financed.” While Congress has the option to “simply write a provision in the national budget that state college tuition is free,” Recto said SUCs will be at the losing end if the expected foregone income will not be “reimbursed” by Congress. “Kasi doon din kinuha ng lahat ng SUCs ang ilang gastusin tulad ng sweldo, allowances, pambili ng supplies, pagpagawa ng mga

The Senate also approved Recto’s amendment to add P5.7 billion to the capital outlays of state tertiary schools, increasing its budget for buildings, equipment and other capital expenditures from P9 billion to P14.98 billion. As a result, SUCs will get an average of P50 million each to build buildings or buy equipment, Recto said. Recto’s P8-billion “free tuition fund” and P5.7 billion in additional SUC capital outlay make up for the largest bulk in the hike of SUCs’ budget, from P56 billion as proposed by the Duterte administration to the Senate version of P71 billion. “The minority has done its part. It has redeemed the promise made by all presidential candidates in the last election that tuition in state colleges will be free. It is up to the majority to uphold this or not,” he said.

situation, at the same time, pumping more economic activity and creating more jobs and livelihood in his most beloved homeland of Mindanao.” (Colina, 2016) But a consumer advocacy group based in Mindanao warns a WESM cannot address power supply problems in Mindanao, and will result only in increasing the rates paid by consumers. “We encourage consumers to raise their vigilance against those advocating for its establishment since they appear to be either engaged in a scheme to maximize profits for generating companies (GENCOS), or ignorant of the economic and technical principles that govern the operations of electric power systems,” noted David A. Tauli, president of the Mindanao Coalition of Power Consumers (MCPC) in a white paper circulated to power consumer advocates in Mindanao. “The main reason WESM will not work in Mindanao is because are only six significant generating companies in Mindanao, and it would be easy for these few gencos to collude with each other to manipulate market prices,” Tauli said. He noted how the Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC) found gencos in the WESM in the Luzon and Visayas had been colluding to increase the price of generated electricity in periods of power shortages, despite having many more gencos deemed necessary to make a spot market bring out the lowest priced electricity through competition. Furthermore, a detailed study released in April 2013 entitled “Challenges in Pricing Electricity Power Services in Selected ASEAN Countries” found that some 90 percent of transactions in the WESM were bilateral agreements specifying the

amount, price, and date of delivery of the power, and not spot transactions. The report was produced by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and prepared by a team of Filipino and American economists for the Virginia-based US government contractor International Resources Group. (Tiglao, 2014) In contrast, a top executive of one the largest coal-fired power plants in Mindanao believes that unless a WESM starts operating and the grid operator commissions high capacity transmission lines to deliver that power where it’s most needed, consumers could still be bugged by high electricity rates and brownouts. “High load generation especially in the southern corridor is constricted,” said Gabino Ramon G. Mejia, executive vice president of GNPower Kauswagan Ltd. Co. during his presentation on “Ensuring Power Supply Availability in Mindanao” during the 1st AMRECO Annual General Membership Assembly held 26 November 2016 at a local hotel. “Even with bilateral contracts, generators are unable to fully deliver contracted capacities, due to grid constraints, with NGCP’s 230kV transmission line backbone project scheduled to come online by next year yet,” Mejia added. However, even if that project gets delayed, Mejia is convinced a WESM could help facilitate the delivery of stranded Bilateral Contracted Quantities (BCQs) or electricity already contracted for by DUs from Gencos but undelivered due to capacity limitations of the transmission system. “There are 4 key areas which are ‘must haves’ to ensure the availability of power supply in Mindanao: Market (a sophisticated electricity market); Infrastructure (a strong and reliable grid); Planning (robust energy resource planning to continuously build additional capacity, and practice competitive procurement) and Policies (Create and enforce key policies and fulfill respective obligations in contracted/ signed agreements). “ The long standing supply deficit problem in Mindanao has already been solved, but power supply availability connotes the need for competitive pricing and reliability, reliable plants and a robust grid,” Mejia stressed. “The current situation in Mindanao with excess power supply and no WESM, has power generation being dispatched based solely on purely technical considerations of power supply agreements.” Engr. Glenn Reston of the Mindanao Development Authority, OIC of Mindanao Power Monitoring Committee (MPMC) earlier said the WESM can transport surplus electricity to areas where it is insufficient. “We

are entering a regime of surplus capacity. We need to have the market,” he emphasized. (Colina, 2016) But the MCPC said the DOE, MPMC and gencos are either ignorant or deliberately not disclosing the technical limitations which constrain a WESM in Mindanao from performing as advertised. “ The reason why a WESM in Mindanao will not address the ‘problem’ of overcapacity in power plants (considered only a problem by gencos, but a blessing to power consumers) is that the excess capacity is in base-load power plants, whose generation should not be sold in an electricity spot market. The generation of base-load power plants is sold through long-term power supply contracts,” Tauli stressed in his white paper. He further explained how ancillary services also are not sold in a spot market, but are contracted for a term of several years by the power system operator. “C onsumers should also be informed that it is only the power output of intermediate-load power plants and peaking power plants (generally oil-fueled or natural-gas fueled power plants) which are sold in a spot market,” he noted. “ Only two gencos own significant capacity of diesel-fueled power plants: the Aboitiz group and the Alcantara group. It would be very easy for these two gencos to manipulate the price of electricity sold in an electricity spot market.” On the DOE’s proposed interconnection of the Mindanao to the Luzon and Visayan grids to make the WESM economically efficient, Tauli said NGCP studies have shown an interconnection is not economically justifiable for Mindanao. “The costs (mainly in increased payments for electricity) to consumers in Mindanao of a VisayasMindanao interconnection would greatly exceed its economic benefits,” he said. “Given the foregoing characteristics of the electric power industry in Mindanao, which should be known to anyone in any position of authority in the electric power industry, it can be concluded that officers of private corporations and public agencies in the electric power industry who are campaigning for the establishment of a WESM in Mindanao are either engaged in a scheme to increase the profits of the generating companies, or ignorant of the economic and technical principles that govern the operations of electric power systems,” he concluded.

to give subscribers an efficient way of communication at the lowest possible rates. “This is just the first step. It wouldn’t stop with voice. It

A11 will continue with text, Internet. We will lower the prices,” said Cordoba after Globe and PLDT agreed to cut down interconnection charges by Jan. 1, 2017 through the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on November 28. Cordoba said affording the public cheap but high quality way of communication is the thrust of the administration of President Rodrigo Duterte, noting that 50 percent of the market still relies on conventional calls. “These are the people in the provinces, especially the lower income families. They are the ones using voice calls,” he noted. “The telcos right now, they can use the lower interconnection rates to give different promos, pocket pricing and unlimited calls; they may be crossed over from one network to another,” Cordoba explained. The NTC recently issued Memorandum Circular (MC) No. 09-11-2016 on Interconnection Charge for Voice Service, which directs that interconnection rates among telcos’ voice services shall no longer be higher than PHP2.50 per minute from the previous PHP4 per minute charge. The interconnection charges are also subject to an annual review by the NTC. NTC Deputy Commissioner Edgardo Cabarios said “effectively the retail rates should be dropped by PHP1 across all plans” following the agreement signed by the telcos. Cabarios explained that with the lower interconnection charges, the current retail rates of PHP6.50 per minute for mobile calls and PHP7.50 per minute for mobile to landline calls are expected to drop to PHP5.50 and PHP6.50, respectively. The NTC said the new reduced interconnection charges shall be effective not later than January 1, 2017 to give sufficient time for the necessary adjustment in the operators’ respective billing system.

In a speech in Malacañang on Monday night, the President said, “Sabi ng human rights (defenders), pinapatay ko raw, sabi ko ‘sige na maghinto tayo, paramihin natin.’ Para ‘pag panahon ng harvest time mas marami na tuloy mamatay, isali ko na kayo kasi kayo ang nagpalaki eh.” “What he said was a clear threat to those who raise concerns about the extrajudicial killings occurring in the course of his anti-drug war. What he committed is extremely unbecoming of a President whose influence greatly impacts the lives of millions of Filipinos. As educators, we are deeply concerned for the youth who look up to him,” said anothe lawmaker, Rep. France Castro. The lawmakers reiterated that it is imperative for government to address the roots of drug addiction and its proliferation in the country. “The government should address poverty which leaves the Filipinos vulnerable to the ills of illegal drugs and break the conspiracy of corrupt police and their politician backers while respecting every single person’s human rights,” added Castro.
