Nazareth gym on August 8, tackling the region’s priority concerns on health, countering of violent extremism and general development.

Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) 10 Regional Director Arnel M. Agabe said, “Dagyaw 2019 is one way of bringing the government closer to the people through Civil Society Organizations and citizens in addressing various issues and concerns through national and regional officials of government agencies.” Through open government and participatory governance, he underscored that this will give the citizens the right to actively participate in good governance, especially in Region 10. Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO) Secretary Martin Andanar, likewise highlighted the need to bring the government closer to the people saying, “Our task here is to gather all your stories and take them to desks where programs and decisions are made.

Improving the literacy status of former rebels and their qualified families CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY-Forty former rebels (FRs) and their qualified families are currently undergoing basic education, thanks to the BINULIGA team composed of Department of Education (DepEd) Region 10 under the Alternative Learning System (ALS), Xavier University’s ARRUPE Educational Center, E-CLIP Committee of Cagayan de Oro City, and the 65th Infantry Batallion (IB) of the Philippine Army. The Binuliga Basic Literacy Program (BBLP) class which started on June 15 and will end in September, is scheduled twice a week at the headquarters of the 65IB at Sitio Patpat, Brgy Mambuaya, Cagayan de Oro City. It is facilitated by the Arrupe Volunteers-ALS

Teachers, supported by the said unit and is sponsored by the City Government and DepEd Region 10. The curriculum is composed of a set of knowledge and skills and competencies that the learners should develop to meet the minimum requirements of basic education. Just recently, the members of the Team visited and witnessed the result of their intensive efforts on providing basic education for the former rebels and their qualified family members. Through the program, the students are now able to read slowly, write their names, learned history, and some other knowledge. Not only did they improved intellectually, but they

also displayed significant improvement in their behaviors, which will guide them to open their minds for possibilities and future opportunities The positive feedback from the FRs and their qualified families make the implementation of the program a success. One of the FRs, Alyas Lablab, said, “Nagpapasalamat kami sa kanila at marunong na kami magbasa at magsulat ng pangalan namin, pati rin ang birthday ay alam na din namin.” The Binu liga B asic Literacy Program (BBLP) serves as a boost for the FRs and their families to have a better life ahead, and not to be deceived anymore by exploitative individuals See LITERACY, page 10

DILG chief cites EO70 to back police visibility in schools By CHRISTOPHER LLOYD CALIWAN PNA

DEPARTMENT of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) Secretary Eduardo Año on Friday said the department will review the memorandum of agreement with state universities and colleges regarding police visibility in infiltrated schools and universities. Año said in line with the government’s “whole-ofnation-approach” in eliminating local armed conflict as stated in Executive Order No. 70,which created the National Task Force to End the Local Communist Armed Conflict (NTFELCAC), police presence in schools and universities can be increased to deter the recruitment program of Leftist groups. “Tandaan natin na ang laban na ito ay hindi lamang sa red area o mga probinsiya kundi pati dito sa white area o mga lungsod - sa ating mga eskwelahan, factories at iba pa - ito ang kanilang target samantalahin (Let’s remember that this fight is not only in red areas or in the provinces, but also in white areas ir cities, in our schools, factories, these are

DILG Secretary Eduardo Año

their target),” Año said in a statement. He said the department will also conduct dialogues and increase engagements with school authorities and the student themselves “to raise awareness on (the) modus operandi of the Communist Party of the Philippines-New People’s Army-National Democratic Front.” “Hindi natin sinasabi na masama ang mga student organizations, but many of them have been infiltrated

already by the CPP (We’re not saying that student organizations are bad, but many of them have been infiltrated by the CPP),” he added. According to Año, there are 500 to 1000 youths being indoctrinated by the CPP-NPA every year and who either become members of the NPA or return to their respective schools as militant student leaders. “They are using their alleged nationalism to teach children to kill and take up

arms against the government,” he said. “Ang nangyayari kasi ngayon (What happens now is that) so many schools are deeply infiltrated by the CPP-NPA through their front organizations. Ngayon, itong mga rebeldeng ito ay may mga corresponding member organizations sa mga eskwelahan kaya ito yun dapat nating bantayan (Now these rebels have corresponding member organizations in schools that we should be vigilant),” he

says. He also said it is unfortunate that Republic Act 1700 or the Anti-Subversion Act was repealed, adding that these leftist groups should be banned for being subversive and illegal. In the meantime, he said, the PNP has already initiated the filing of cases against the front organizations identified through a recent Senate hearing and in the government’s own intelligence and investigations. ‘White areas’ He also said that youth recruitment by leftist groups is only a fraction of the communist terrorist groups’ (CTGs) elaborate campaign to overthrow the democratic government of the Philippines through armed struggle. He explained that such activities are prevalent in “white areas” or urban centers, where they actively recruit new members and extort revolutionary taxes from legitimate businessmen to fund their armed rebellion in the “red areas”, where they kill police officers and soldiers, government representatives, and

anyone who opposes them. “It’s part of their DNA to do these recruitments and unfortunately, they are able to brainwash our youth. Kaya naman let us work together so that no Filipino will again be persuaded to abandon their families,” he said. He also urged local government units (LGUs) to exercise good governance to regain the people’s trust in government. “Good governance is our weapon against CTGs. Ang mga isyu na malapit sa bituka ang target samantalahin ng mga CTG na ito sa kanilang recruitment (The CTGs choose issues close to their targets during their recruitment). I prod LGUs to put emphasis on programs that will address these issues as this can save our country from the havoc of these communist-terrorists,” he stressed. “Prioritize programs that will tackle deeply-rooted issues such as provision of adequate social services including education, and improved quality of life for all, among others,” he noted.

The right to work

“Discrimination due to age is one of the great tragedies of modern life. The desire to work and be useful is what makes life worth living, and to be told your efforts are not needed because you are the wrong age is a crime”. Johnny Ball

THE recent call of Manila Mayor Isko Moreno to all fastfood chains to accommodate senior citizens as their workers deserves a pat on his back. In fact, his call is not new. It has been religiously observed – and complied -- globally. In Hongkong, a woman in her 60s works as food server in one of the city’s fast food restaurants, still agile and smart. In Singapore, a male senior citizen serves as hallway cleaner on a graveyard shift at Changi Airport. The amiable middle-aged

stewardess of an international airline serves hot coffee while wearing a contagious smile to her passengers. Make no mistake about them, they are all ‘centennials’, yet they are on still their toes earning decent living. What drives these wonderful people to work all throughout their productive years? What makes them useful despite their age? In their respective countries, they are all covered by an employment law protecting their right to work. For them, age doesn’t matter as long as long as they are able to deliver the goods —mentally, emotionally and most importantly, physically. Lately, the usefulness of our labor force have been recognized particularly those who already retired,

but not entirely tired. Thanks to Sen. Pia Cayetano, principal author of R.A. 10911 otherwise known as the Anti-Age Discrimination in Employment Act. Finally, a ray of hope for those who are still wanting to sweat it out despite their age. What matters most is the desire to make a difference and make most of their time, skills and talent while still on the go, so to speak. For clarity, these are the key points on R.A. 10911: 1. Who are covered? All employers, labor contractors or subcontractors, labor organizations, and publishers. 2. What are the prohibited acts? Employer - Print or publish, or cause to be printed or published, in any form of media, including the internet, any notice of advertisement

relating to employment suggesting preferences, limitations, specifications, and discrimination based on age; - Require the declaration of age or birth date during the application process; - Decline any employment application because of the individual’s age; - Discriminate against an individual in terms of compensation, terms and conditions or privileges of employment on account of such individual’s age; - Deny any employee’s or worker’s promotion or See RIGHT, page 11

The power of collaboration in the 4-IR

“Collaboration is—first and foremost—a change in attitude and behavior of people throughout an organization.” (Carol Kinsey Goman, 2019). THE quotation above reminds us of the fourthindustrial revolution (4-IR) and its consequences. It also happened to be the same as the theme chosen by my organization IASPER (international association of scholarly publishers, editors, and reviewers) recently in Kuala Lumpur. Bridging research to the 4-IR. It is more challenging than the past and the present. In the previous article, I wrote about the two hard and smart workers. One of the point is the power of collaboration. Besides believing in God, the power of collaboration is proved. It has been tested and valid. Collaboration is the process

of human beings for being aware. It is awareness of human lives in the globe. We cannot live alone. We have to have a good relationship. Evidently, the power of collaboration is required. It is a must for whoever such as researchers, intellectuals, educators, even the leaders in any country. Without having a skill of collaboration, we all will be the losers. When referred to the quotation above, collaboration is not merely a strategy. It is also more than technology. It is even more than the best strategy any organization has chosen. It means that collaboration is more than everything the organization has.

When an organization has already equipped themselves with high technology, it does not mean they are the winners. They are still the losers. When they cannot make use of their technology for enhancing their ability to collaborate, they will be the losers. By doing collaborations, the organization can change their attitude. Collaboration has a sense of adaptation. It also has a meaning of having ability to find the best among the best for sharing. This shared value is called the hybrid of interaction. When we live alone, we always feel satisfied. We will think our own ability and judge we are already

Dr. Djuwari

settled. Unfortunately, when there is a huge problem, we tend to be in chaos. Everything is in a mass. It is like a little fish swimming alone. Though having a strong body—it will find itself frightened. The fish will feel more anxious compared to that swimming together with other million little fish in the ocean. By collaborating, we can establish a strength. It is both physical strength and sense of being powerful. As an intellectual, we will feel satisfied. We feel that we have been erudite.

Iligan City East High School – Santiago Annex Now Offers Open High School Program By TITO G. MAÑACAP, Ed.D. School Principal

Just this school year 20192020, Iligan City East High School – Santiago Annex recently opened their open high school program for students from Brgy. Santiago and nearby barangays within Iligan City that do not have the availability or capability to attend the regular high school. This is in accordance with the mandate given by the Department of Education. What is the Open High School Program? Open High School Program is an alternative mode of formal secondary education program run by the Bureau of Secondary Education (BSE) of the Department of Education (DepED) of the Republic of the Philippines. The program provides an opportunity for elementary school graduates, high school drop-outs, and successful examinees of the Philippine Education Placement Test (PEPT) to complete

secondary education in a pure distance learning mode. The program provides printed selflearning modules for students to use for their lessons and classroom activities. OHSP is available nationwide for free. As of August 2019, there are already a number of Public schools in Iligan City that offers Open High School Program among those is the Iligan City High School. Iligan City East High School – Santiago Annex is the newest addition to the list of public schools in Iligan City that offers the program. Currently, Iligan City East High School – Santiago Annex has over a hundred students that are enrolled in the program. That number of students could still grow since the mentioned high school is still accepting new enrollees for the program. Who are qualified to enroll

Statement of Senator Juan Miguel F. Zubiri in celebration of Eid al-Adha The commemoration of Eid al-Adha is very important to me personally. As a Mindanaoan and having worked for nine years in the House of Representatives with fellow congressmen who are Muslim, I strongly felt that this holiday should be observed by all Filipinos. I wished peace for the whole country. Mindanao is a hotbed of terrorism and rebellion because the Manila-centric government has failed to end extreme poverty there and democratic institutions have not been supported well. I principally authored R.A. 9849 as a sign of unity with and religious tolerance for more than 5% of our population. I greet them today with total respect. No less than 5 million Filipinos practice the faith of Islam and every citizen should see to it that Muslim holidays are observed properly. I also enjoin everyone to wish our Muslim Filipino brothers the best in the implementation of the Bangsamoro Organic Law. We are all in this together for peace, harmony & progress for our Muslim brothers.

under OHSP? Students who wish to avail of OHSP must meet the following qualifications: • Filipino citizen • Independent learner

• Have completed the pre-requisite grade or year level • Must pass the Independence Learning Readiness Test (ILRT) and the Informal

Reading Inventory (IRI) OHSP is intended for students who would otherwise be unable to pursue formal secondary education due to the rigid requirement of regular class schedules. It is an alternative to attending regular classes but is not designed to be beneficial to all students. Most students may still learn best by attending the proper formal secondary education. The 2017 data from the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) showing the number of out-of-school youth aged 16 to 24 at 3.6 million does not paint a positive outlook for the long-term sustainability of the country. Thus, the Open

High School Program is one of the media of the Department of Education to solve the Philippines’ problem with the significant number of out-ofschool youth. DePED so far has already been successful in reducing that number in the past few years with their different mediums. For the next years to come, DepED still aims to continue to reduce the rate of illiteracy in the Philippines until no “Juan” is left un-educated. Iligan City East High School – Santiago Annex supports the DepED with their mission of educating every Filipino by accepting students for the Open High School Program.

MANILA -- Finance Secretary Carlos Dominguez III and Agriculture Secretary William Dar have mutually agreed over the weekend to implement the assistance program to help rice farmers adjust to low prices of palay (paddy rice) following the passage of Republic Act (RA) No. 11203 or the Rice Tariffication Law. Under the program, an unconditional cash assistance would be allocated and distributed to affected farmers by expanding the ongoing Survival and Recovery (SURE) program of the Agricultural Credit Policy Council (ACPC), an attached agency of the DA. The expansion of SURE to assist rice farmers will also build on the good experience under the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps) program of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD). The expanded SURE

program is in addition to the programs and projects mandated under the Rice Competitive Enhancement Fund (RCEF), the annual PHP10-billion fund established under RA 11203 to be sourced from the Bureau of Custom’s (BOC) collection of tariffs on rice imports by private traders following the enactment of this law. “ This unconditional cash assistance program is meant to help cushion the initial impact of lower palay prices on our farmers as they transition to the new rice tariffication regime,” Dominguez said. “For the long haul, the RCEF facility under RA 11203 will help sharpen the global competitiveness of our farmers by way of an array of programs providing them with access to farm machinery and equipment, high-yield seeds, cheap credit and skills training programs on farm See HELP, page 10

LANDBANK to bring retail lending program to 70,000 farmers, fishers and MSMEs in Cotabato Province

THE Land Bank of the Philippines (LANDBANK) will expand its lending programs in the Province of Cotabato from 30,000 beneficiaries assisted since 2012, to 70,000 by going directly to individual farmers and fishers, including those engaged in micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs). The Bank made this announcement during the recent “Farmers and AgriMSMEs Caravan” organized by LANDBANK and the Office of Cotabato Province Governor Nancy A. Catamco at the Provincial Gymnasium in Kidapawan City last July 31, 2019, and attended by some 1,680

small farmers and fishers, agricultural MSMEs, cooperatives and indigenous peoples from the 17 municipalities and one city of the Province. “As we push forward with our aggressive thrust to promote greater financial inclusion, LANDBANK is continuously banking on partnerships with LGUs to bring financial services closer to more unbanked and underserved Filipinos. We hope to replicate this event in other provinces,” said LANDBANK President and CEO Cecilia C. Borromeo. The day-long event included presentations about the Accessible Funds for

Delivery to Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries (AFFORDARBs), a direct lending program of LANDBANK in partnership with the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) that caters to individual ARBs engaged in the production of rice, corn and high value crops, as well as the acquisition of small farm implements such as hand tractors. Another lending window discussed was the Socialized Credit Program under the Sugarcane Industry Development Act (SCP-SIDA), a tie-up with the Sugar Regulatory Administration (SRA) that aims to provide timely financial assistance to sugarcane farmers, block

MAKATI City, Philippines – August 9, 2019 In a milestone event, Ayala Corporation (Ayala) held its first Integrated Corporate Governance, Risk Management and Sustainability Summit to deliberately push the connection of these three disciplines in driving business growth responsibly. Ayala believes that ingraining sustainability in growth strategies significantly helps mitigate risks, which leads to heightened governance procedures and better disclosures. This is a strategic imperative at the Ayala group. “We believe that by integrating Corporate Governance, Risk Management and Sustainability, we will fortify the group’s capacity to function as a more efficient and relevant partner in nation building. To us, sustainability is key to bridging persistent societal gaps that have disenfranchised generations of Filipinos,” said Ayala Chairman & CEO Jaime Augusto Zobel de Ayala. In 2017, Zobel was chosen as a UN Sustainable Development Goals (UN

SDGs) Pioneer for Sustainable Business Strategy and Operations, a first in the Philippines and Southeast Asia. Following its Board of Directors’ call for the company to align businesses to the UN SDGs, Ayala launched its Sustainability Blueprint, a group-wide plan that allows its companies to champion and operationalize specific UN SDGs. It aims to help Ayala address major challenges and societal gaps affecting Filipinos today and contribute tangibly to three focus areas. These are Access & Inclusivity and Productivity & Competitiveness for more

Filipinos, and Responsible Growth & Innovation for its businesses. The Blueprint’s goal is to bridge the Filipino to 2030, where Ayala envisions the Filipino as a global citizen with firm roots in a country that is safe, secure, sustainable, inclusive, and progressive. For example, in healthcare, research indicated that 43% of low to middleincome Filipinos have not been to a doctor in more than a year, with 6 out of 10 Filipinos dying without ever seeing a doctor. Because Ayala believes that all Filipinos deserve to live a healthier lifestyle, AC

Finally, LANDBANK also presented the program features of the Agricultural Competitiveness Enhancement Fund (ACEF), another lending facility for farmers, fishers, MSMEs, cooperatives and associations for the acquisition and establishment of production, post-harvest, and processing machineries; equipment and facilities; and farm inputs

and improvements. As of June 30, 2019, the combined loans extended to the agriculture sector and the Bank’s mandated sector reached P219.63 billion, which is 27.45% of LANDBANK’s total loans to all sectors of P799.64 billion, making it consistently compliant with Republic Act No. 10000 or the Agri-Agra Credit Law, which mandates banks to allot 25% of their total loanable funds to agriculture and fisheries. The Caravan was held

in cooperation with the Department of Agriculture (DA) – Regional Field Office XII, Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) – Provincial Office, Philippine Crop Insurance Corporation (PCIC) – Regional Office XII, Cooperative Development Authority (CDA), National Commission on Indigenous Peoples (NCIP), Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) – Revenue District Office 108, and the Commission of Elections (COMELEC).

PRRD mulls lifting martial law in Davao City: Go By CHE PALICTE PNA

DAVAO CITY -- Senator Christopher Lawrence “Bong” Go said on Saturday President Rodrigo Duterte is still studying the proposed exemption of this city from martial law in view of security concerns. “I cannot speak in behalf of the President, but he is concerned that the terrorists might run and hide here in Mindanao,” he said. Last Tuesday, Councilor Mabel Acosta, peace and public safety committee chairperson, filed a resolution requesting President Duterte to exempt the city from the coverage of the island-wide martial law. Mayor Sara Duterte announced during the 5th Davao Investment Conference (ICon) in June her intention to ask for the lifting of martial law following her dialogue with ambassadors and officials

of other countries who attended the event. Go, who visited fire and monsoon wave victims here, said he supports the stand of Mayor Sara, knowing that this city is a very peaceful place to live in. However, he said the decision whether to lift martial law here is still in the hands of the President based on the recommendation of the military, intelligence authorities, and the Department of National Defense. “As a Dabawenyo, I witness how peaceful the city is but I also understand the position of the national government on this issue,” the senator added. Go also explained that the military presence in Mindanao is meant to not only protect the island from terrorists but also to deter them from coming in. MARTIAL LAW EXEMPTION.

SSS releases P4.23B in benefits to OFWs in 2018 THE state-run Social Security System (SSS) over the weekend said more than P4.23 billion worth of benefits were disbursed to some 61,406 land-based overseas Filipino worker (OFW)-members in 2018. SSS President and Chief Executive Officer Aurora C. Ignacio said the 2018 benefit disbursement to land-based OFWs was equivalent to 66 percent of the P6.37 billion contribution collection from land-based OFWs in the same year. “We are glad that we were able to translate the contributions of our dear OFW-members into ben-

efits that were disbursed to them during times of contingencies. SSS stands by its mandate to provide adequate, universal social security protection for all workers in the private sector in times of retirement, disability, death, funeral, sickness or maternity,” Ignacio said. Of the total disbursements, P2.87 billion were disbursed for regular pensions such as retirement, death, and disability pensions while short-term benefits such as sickness and maternity, amounted to P271 million, and initial and lump-sum benefits at

P1.09 billion. Meanwhile, the state-run pension fund reiterated that Republic Act 11199 or the Social Security Act of 2018 which provides for mandatory coverage of OFWs will ensure viable social security for OFWs and their families. SSS initiated an executive meeting with the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) and Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) on 26 June 2019 wherein it was agreed that the Joint Committee of the Department of Foreign Affairs, DOLE, and SSS be convened immediately to

implement the mandatory coverage of OFWs under the SS Act of 2018. In the same meeting, SSS said it will open a payment facility in POEA in addition to the existing tellers at the SSSPOEA branch to collect contributions from OFWs. The compulsory OFW coverage provision of the IRR guarantees that OFWs who are deployed can enjoy the benefits offered by SSS – sickness, maternity, disability, retirement, funeral, death—that OFWs can avail in times of need. “SSS is duty-bound to implement the law. We would like to urge OFW-

members to look at the compulsory coverage as an added savings and protection for their future and not as an additional expense,” Ignacio added. Under the mandatory coverage of OFWs, all land-based and sea-based Filipinos working abroad will have to pay at least a minimum monthly contribution of P960 which is equivalent to 12 percent of the P8,000 monthly salary credit (MSC). Previously, under the old law, the minimum monthly contribution for OFWs was P550 which is equivalent to P5,000 MSC. As a result of the increase

ROTC to give future Filipino sailors edge, says ACTS-OFW

PRESIDENT Rodrigo Duterte’s plan to revive the compulsory Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC) program for all male Grades 11 and 12 students, once realized, is bound to give future Filipino sailors the edge in the global market for ship officers, the ACTS-OFW Coalition of Organizations said Sunday. “There’s no question international shipping companies perfer to recruit merchant mariners with basic military training,” said ACTS-OFW chairman Aniceto Bertiz III. “If we produce Bachelor of Science in Marine Transportation and Bachelor of Science in Marine Engineering graduates who underwent the ROTC course when they were in senior high

school, they will surely be highly favored by shipping firms around the world,” Bertiz, a former member of Congress, said. The President recently endorsed to Congress a list of 22 priority measures for immediate passage, including the bill the renewing the mandatory two-year ROTC course for all male senior high school students.

Health is building an integrated ecosystem of accessible, affordable, quality healthcare. It aims to serve one in every five Filipinos by 2030, through FamilyDOC, its community-based primary healthcare clinics, Generika, its retail pharmacy, and various health tech investments. In the finance sector, about two-thirds of Filipinos are unbanked and thus, vulnerable to the risks connected to unauthorized lenders. Ayala believes that all Filipinos must have alternative means to access the financial system. Through BPI’s BanKo, unbanked Filipinos have access to loan products to start their SMEs. Furthermore, Globe’s Mynt, offers alternative credit scoring models and simplified access to microloans through its mobile platform. In education, 65% of Filipino graduates are deemed unemployable from the lack of industry-related skills, while 15% of the global workforce are projected to switch jobs by 2030 to meet new demands. Addressing education and employment, Ayala through its partnership with the Yuchengco Group, aims to provide an innovative learning experience to equip students with industry-related skills, help improve graduates’ employment prospects, reduce the dropout rate, and strengthen the quality of educators. “In my view, we need a deliberate and strong alignment with sustainability principles and adopt clear and consistent long-term thinking. Complemented by effective execution and meaningful impact in critical sectors… Embracing the SDGs as guiding principles to doing business is a winning proposition for both the company and its stakeholders. It goes beyond improving a company’s brand; actual economic value is generated, and companies help the country by addressing underserved needs through inclusive business models, products and services,” concluded Ayala President & COO Fernando Zobel de Ayala. To accelerate growth of sustainable businesses, Ayala continues to partner with like-minded institutions like the World Business Council

for Sustainable Development (WBCSD), where it became the first Philippine member in June 2019, and the United Nations Global Compact Network Philippines, of which it was a founding member in 2017. To learn more about the Summit and its full roster of global speakers, click here.

answered.” Issues and concerns raised by participants include the dengue outbreak, basic health services in isolated areas, closure of some schools that were allegedly used by CPP-NPA to indoctrinate people in highlands, railway system status in Mindanao, and the need for some local government units to prioritize of the installation of waste water system facilities, among others. Moreover, with Dagyaw 2019 showcasing the different services of the government, DILG Asec. Marjorie N. Jalosjos said that this is also in line with the desire to finally put an end to the 50-year long insurgency problem in the country. Through the operationalization of Executive Order 70, also known as the “Whole-of-Nation Approach”, the government aimed on synchronizing all the efforts and interventions focusing on the 27 conflictaffected barangays here in Region 10, she added. “We want to showcase to our people that the government is doing not just ‘something’ but ‘everything’ for the general welfare of our people,” she said. The word “Dagyaw” is a Hiligaynon term for “Bayanihan” which exemplifies the concept of “togetherness”. Dagyaw 2019 is aligned with and support the pre-SONA, SONA, and post-SONA preparations and activities, spearheaded by the DILG, Department of Budget and Management, and the Presidential Communications Operations Office. Dagyaw 2019 for Northern Mindanao was held at Barangay Nazareth Gymnasium, Cagayan de Oro City and was spearheaded by DILG, Department of Budget and Management, and PCOO. (DILG-10/PIA10)

The program is also a huge help for the government in defeating the CNTs group by educating and influencing other members of NPA, who are still in the armed struggle. Furthermore, it creates a positive feedback to the government as this can be a part of success on the psycho-social intervention identified by the CSWD for Former Rebels under Enhanced Comprehensive Local Integration Program (E-CLIP). Former rebels who return to the fold of the law are given holistic interventions by the government in an effort to have a holistic intervention for FRs. The said program was designed to be a multi-dimensional intervention that covers, among others, spiritual enrichment, family therapy, psychiatric and psychological services, livelihood planning, and skills development. 65IB Commanding Officer LTC.

Dominguez expects that tariff revenues from rice imports in 2019 will likely exceed PHP10 billion, a development that will assure full funding of the RCEF. The annual tariff revenues in excess of PHP10 billion will enable further adjustment assistance for rice farmers for the remainder of the Duterte administration, he said.

The role of a school administrative aide By ROWENA B. SUMAGANG Administrative Aide VI Tangub City Schools Division Office

SCHOOL administrative aides – also referred to as clerks – are primarily responsible for handling all clerical tasks in a school’s office. As with administrative assistants in other settings, school administrative aides answer phones, file records and greet visitors. They also read and respond to mail and email from parents, students, teachers, alumni, barangay officials and others from the community in general. In addition, school administrative aides record student attendance, handle student or teachers requests and report to principals. School administrative aides must perform various tasks in order to fulfill all the demands of this occupation. School

administrative aides typically handle all phone calls coming into a school. They converse with school officials, parents and teachers; handle complaints; and address issues pertaining to students and school policies. They also answer emails from parents and suppliers. From generating letters to making copies, school administrative aides provide daily support to both faculty and non-teaching staff. They general order school supplies, generate letters and reports, arrange meetings and maintain the school’s website and social media pages. School administrative aides often record student absences and maintain records of tardiness and early dismissals.

have been established. It is a pseudo power. By having collaboration, we can see both our weaknesses and strengths. When we see others in a collaboration membership, we will find some are stronger than us in some cases. In that circumstance, we can determine either our own strengths or weaknesses. Then, we can exchange our best with others’ best. This interaction leads us into changing our attitude. In the end, the organization develops and becomes more established. In more specific, the 4-IR is the era of Talent. It refers to talents and exchange of the people with their talents. People with different talents are mixed and hybrid. More importantly, the 4-IR is exponential not linear way. So, when people are in a total immersion, they will know each other: weaknesses and strengths. They have to get exchanged. Otherwise, they cannot survive. It is more disruptive, but barter among their talents are positive. It is time for collaboration. As a national leader or any

leader in any organization, they should enhance collaboration, Exchanging expertise and any talents can create the power for changing the total organization’s attitude.

unliquidated cash advances, among others, in the annual audit reports,” Uy, a member of the National Unity Party noted. “Too frequent and too pervasive are the anomalies that it would not be unreasonable to suspect either gross incompetence or deliberate commission as among the underlying reasons. Clearly, forceful measures are needed,” she added. The congresswoman said she is asking both the COA and CSC to work on the problems because “funds management processes plus personnel competence and integrity are the core issues.” She cited anew that the State Audit Code of the Philippines is over 40 years old and “badly needs updating and upgrading” is one of the key reasons government agencies’ “hands are tied” when dealing with spending priorities. “The State Audit Code we still have now is a circa 1978 presidential decree. Much has changed since then, including many financial processes,” she said. “I hope the Finance Secretary and Budget Secretary will convince President Duterte it is long overdue to update, upgrade, and make government auditing relevant and response to current and future realities of governance,” Uy also said. The solon noted that the last major revision of the State Audit Code was through the Administrative Code of 1987, which is an executive order issued by then President Corazon Aquino when she possessed revolutionary lawmaking powers. “1987 is 32 years ago. Again, many advances have taken place since then. While many major laws have been amended and the accounting and auditing professions have been catching up with financial and economic changes worldwide, PD 1445 and EO 292 remain archaic,” Uy said. “I am renewing my call for a Government Audit Reform Summit to be jointly convened by the Legislative Executive Development Advisory Council (LEDAC), national government agencies, local government units, and the Commission on Audit. The Summit shall be in aid of legislation and the output would be a draft bill for a New State Audit Code of the Philippines,” the congresswoman said.

town, Bukidnon. Brig. Gen. Edgardo de Leon, chief of the Army’s 403rd Infantry Brigade said two NPA rebels were killed in an encounter with soldiers in Barangay San Rafael, Talakag town in Bukidnon Sunday morning. The NPA claimed having killed one soldier and injuring four others. De Leon said the NPA band

earlier figured in another encounter with soldiers of the 2nd Mechanized Brigade in Barangay Indulan, also in Talakag town. “They were pushed by soldiers from the 2nd Mechanized Brigade toward us. We waited for them to make their withdrawal to our direction,” he said. De Leon said the fighting took place in the mountains away from the villages. Earlier, “Roxane” of the NPAMt Kitanglad Command informed reporters their units encountered soldiers belonging to the 51st Infantry Battalion, killing one and wounding four. Roxane said the soldiers entered their area around 5 p.m. Saturday and a firefight ensued. She claimed the NPA unit suffered no casualties. (Froilan Gallardo / MindaNews)

Lucas that he offered Roy to just break the company apart by a toss of a coin.” “While we want nothing more than preserve this company, Leo Rey is subverting a company which he co-owns as a director for his own personal interests,” added Emily. Emily, along with her two other siblings, decided to leave the compound to protect the lives of their employees after receiving reports that certain quarters were planning to inflict them physical harm and pin the violence on them or innocent employees inside the compound. The Yanson siblings also do not want other interest groups from overblowing the situation to their advantage. “Yes, we left our corporate offices but it does not mean that we have given up the fight to continue the legacy of our father. They claimed victory, but for what? They may have occupied some of our offices and terminals but command and management of the company still rests on us, majority board members and the real owners of VTI,” Yanson adds.

false claims made by Leo Rey Yanson accusing his four siblings—Roy, Celina, Ricky and herself—of ransacking the corporate offices which reportedly led to the loss of important corporate documents. In an interview by Inquirer business reporter Dax Lucas, ex-bus president Leo Rey claims that the camp of his brother Roy had ransacked the office and Leo Rey remarked that “So far, lots of important documents are missing like Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board franchise papers, land titles, case files, and finance documents, among others. They ransacked the entire office.” Emily vehemently denies Leo Rey’s accusations. As vice president for administration and corporate secretary, it is Emily’s responsibility to secure and keep corporate papers. “Why would we ransack our own offices and steal those documents which Leo Rey claims to be missing? We were occupying the offices for weeks now, and during this whole time, Leo Rey was even there, freely checking and spending his time leisurely as our director?” “While Leo Rey claims that they will begin auditing these documents, he immediately claims that some documents are already missing? Ganun kabilis ang auditing na ginawa? Weekend pa? A liar is really caught by his own lies,” says Emily Yanson who suffered four grueling days inside their Mansilingan compound while 300 cops swarmed the gates, trying to pressure them to leave. Emily Yanson now strongly believes that her youngest brother wanted nothing more than sell the company of her father. “Remember, Leo Rey even remarked in his first interview with the Inquirer reporter Dax

The only reason why we left our offices last Friday is the fact that we were exhausted already and we want to go back to our respective homes.” “But, don’t underestimate our will and determination to see to it that this legacy which our father had left us is protected and in able hands. We are still holding the fort,” Yanson-Lopez adds.
