Christmas in Villanueva town begins with lighting of ‘Sulo’ THE town of Villanueva in Misamis Oriental kicked off the Christmas celebration this year with the lighting of “Giant Sulo” on Sunday night, a town official said yesterday. Ruel Gayoso, municipal administrator of Villuanueva town, said the switch-on ceremony of the “Giant Sulo” served as one of the highlights of “Fiesko 2019” or the “Fiesta and Pasko celebration of the municipality of Villanueva.” “It was an annual activity of the local government of Villanueva,” said Gayoso adding, “what was added this year is the lighting of the giant torch apart from the usual Christmas trees and lanterns.” He said ceremonial switch-on of the Villanueva High Mast Tower (SULO) with accompanying music and dancing Christmas lights was spearheaded by

Mayor Jennie Uy. Although second district Rep. Juliette T. Uy, who is still attending the session in Congress, failed to attend the activity, Gayoso said the congresswoman sent second district Board Member Jessa Mugot to represent her. In her post to FB, Mugot said: “Thank you LGU Villanueva and Mayor Jennie Uy for inviting me! So Honored to be part of your celebration. More blessings Villanueva!!! Happy Fiesta!” The lighting of the “Giant Sulo” was done at the town’s Public Plaza on December 1 (Sunday) at around 7 in the evening, Gayoso said. Mayor Uy also led the official opening of the InterBarangay Christmas Village contest with every barangay creating miniature replicas of significant landmarks in our town. She also led the official See BEGINS, page 11

Reg’l summit vs gender-based violence opens campaign to end VAW CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY-As part of the 18-Day Campaign to End VAW (Violence Against Women), the Commission on Human Rights (CHR) held the Regional Summit Against GenderBased Violence (GBV), November 25, here. Recording 707 total VAW cases in the region with 575 Republic Act 9262 (Act Defining Violence Against

Women and Their Children) violations and 68 rape cases based on the data on VAW generated from Crime Information Reporting and Analysis System as of November 5, 2018, CHR Regional Director Lawyer Jeanne Ivy Abrina said they now focus on halting rape and other forms of sexual violence against women and girls.

The GBV Summit also focuses on the vices and experiences of women in the marginalized sector as well as it aims to collectively reflect on the gains and the continuing gaps in addressing GBV together with the members of the different inter-agency mechanisms against GBV. During the summit, the term ‘gender-based violence’

highlighted the gender dimension of the relationship between females’ subordinate status in society and their increased vulnerability to violence. “It is also important to note that men and boys may also be victims of genderbased violence,” Lawyer Filipinas Palma of CHR said. See SUMMIT, page 11

NGCP’s ‘close door policy’ questioned

DESPITE the assurance of President Duterte that the NGCP issue on national security is not a cause to panic, Energy Secretary Alfonso Cusi has debunked this claim and questioned the hardheaded stance of the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines on the reported capability of its foreign technical partner, the State Grid of China to remotely shut down the country’s power grid. In fact, eversince the Senate has re-ignited the issue on national security of the country’s electric transmission facility, NGCP has been uncooperative to open itself for an audit to once and for all answer the issue. Secretary Cusi’s state-

ment comes after NGCP has dismissed the allegation that the State Grid Corporation of China (SGCC) could cripple the country’s power transmission. Despite repeated calls for a thorough investigation on the matter, NGCP had openly denied access of state-owned National Transmission Corp. (TransCo) from inspecting the power transmission’s control centers “and how they use the other infrastructure under its control.” It’s a concern that has been raised before. Potentially, NGCP’s so called technical partner cum investor can remotely shut down considering its digital nature, says Cusi. Since time immemorial,

it has been always the position of the DOE that the systems operation should be handled by the government for the reason that a private company or a private individual should not be given the control over the most critical infrastructure of the state — the transmission grid network — capable of transmitting power and digital data. The system operation comprises about 6 percent of the whole transmission business. If it is not critical to the business of NGCP, then It should not have been included in the Concession Contract in the first place. On the contrary, it is critical for the existence of the State. It is critical too for

Ruffy Magbanua

making sure it aligns with the operations of WESM (Wholesale Electricity Spot Market). At this stage w hen NGCP’s credibility is in question, what it needs to do is to submit to a full independent audit with the appropriate agencies of government properly represented. Earlier, TransCo has requested NGCP to conduct a vulnerability assessment and penetration testing of the transmission network and system, including telecommunications, and its See POLICY, page 11

Nuts & Bolts

10 Stages to Becoming a Chef 1. Stage One: Acclimatisation Entering the kitchen for the first time The first step into a professional kitchen can be a big one and it will probably start at the pot wash. 2. Stage Two: Transition From observer to commis Knife skills, ingredient knowledge and equipment use, and following recipes and techniques will start to grow in this phase, building speed and efficiency into the training chef. 3. Stage Three: Foundational Skills From commis to key line position

The cook becomes a competent and trusted member of the team. 4. Stage Four: Speed and Efficiency Speed and efficiency are now added to the training chefs competencies making them a key player in the team. 5. Stage Five: Confidence Sous Chef Level Confidence comes in with knowledge and speed. Chefs can be ready for promotion in this phase, up to sous chef level. 6. Stage Six: Experience Wins At this stage the cook

has come out the other side of many experiences both good and bad and can put them to play as part of the team. 7. Stage Seven: Knowledge Worker From sous chef to chef At this point skills and knowledge are matched, giving the chef the maturity to oversee the whole kitchen. 8. Stage Eight: Planner and Problem Solver The chef starts to oversee the whole operation and the image of the restaurant and planning aspects. 9. Stage Nine: Teacher/ Mentor At this stage the chef has

accumulated competencies from the ground up and is comfortable in the role of employee mentor and role model. 10. Stage Ten: Raconteur & Protector This is the pinnacle of the chef ’s career, after decades of accumulated experience and knowledge. This is when a chef becomes a “sage”, taking on the role of storyteller.

Proud watching SEAG in the boondocks of Mindanao THE President of the Philippines, Rodrigo Duterte, did a little dancing ala “budots” to the cadence of songs, drums, and gongs while the Sultan of Brunei, His Majesty Haji Hassanal Bolkiah, clapped in awe amid the euphoria that defined the magnificent opening ceremonies of the 30th SEA Games. I watched the grand spectacle unfolding in living colors hundreds of miles away in Davao and I would give credit to ABS-CBN this time for telecasting the event without a single commercial from start to finish. This network has redeemed itself from faked news and photos that it failed to vet and bits of negativism that some of its anchorpersons are wont to do. While we are certain that Southeast Asian nations are watching, we were told later that the SEA Games opening ceremonies topped the

tallies of worldwide events and then slashed by over in various social media plat- P2-billion. Not content with forms.

The Chairman of the Senate Sports Committee Christopher “Bong Go” did not relent or complain. Used to tackling problems under the tutelage of Duterte under whom he served as confidant and executive assistant for over 20 years, he knew how to tackle problems. The SEAG is not his baptism of fire. By his body language, something is telling us that the venues of the games were ready, the opening ceremonies will be grand and our athletes are wellprimed. In sum, the budget of P6-billion is in fact wellspent. The different venues of the games and events were ready and well-appreciated by the competing teams from 10 East Asian nations. Of course there were some kinks, molehills which were created into mountains by the usual critical media See SEAG, page 11

SEC eyes release of REIT rules next year By LESLIE GATPOLINTAN

MANILA -- The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has completed the final draft amendments to the implementing rules and regulations (IRR) of the Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT) law as it aims to launch the product early next year. SE C C ommiss i one r Ephyro Luis Amatong said the corporate regulator also has the listing rules and listing agreement of the Philippine Stock Exchange (PSE), and it is closely coordinating with the Department of Finance (DOF) to

ING Savings Account customers will receive a P100 rebate fee per transaction from now ensure regulations on the not given a tax incentive more of making sure that until Jan. 31, 2020 minimum float of REITs are aligned with the proposal coming from the SEC. “We will continue to work on it until the end of the year, so maybe we can get it out sooner rather than later. And that’s really the preferred outcome,” he told reporters over the weekend. “Our goal is to get this done much earlier than the first half of next year.” Amatong cited Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) rules wherein property developers, which are not yet at 66 percent in public float, have to escrow the tax they would have paid if they were

under the REIT law. “Right now, unless the BIR changes the revenue regulation to be in line with the proposed change in the SEC’s regulation lowering back the minimum public float requirement for REIT to 33 percent, there will be potential confusion among issuers,” he said. Amatong said SEC has proposed changes to the law’s IRR, such as amendments to PSE listing rules and listing agreement, and accompanying changes in the revenue regulation. “So what really will be the tax treatment of it? It is

Passed by Congress in 2009, the REIT law did not take off in the country amid issues on public ownership and taxation on asset transfers. A REIT is a publicly-listed stock corporation that owns income-generating real estate assets, such as malls, offices, and hotels. Envisioned to promote the development of the capital market, REITs are instruments to generate capital. (PNA)

SINCE its launch as the first all-digital bank in the Philippines in November 2018, ING seeks to redefine banking and savings in the Philippines. With a fully digital account opening process, high interest rate offer with no minimum amount and no lock-in period, ING wants to promote a healthy savings mindset and higher adoption of cashless transactions in the Philippines.

BSP Enhances Guidelines on Peso Consumer Loans for OFWs

IN order to facilitate the access of Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) to bank credit, the Monetary Board has approved the enhanced policy expressly allowing banks to grant Peso consumer loans for OFWs without prior Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) approval. This is in line with the BSP’s financial inclusion and empowerment agenda. The revised guidelines likewise liberalize the rules limiting the grant of Peso consumer loans to certain types of visa holders. In particular, Peso consumer loans, except residential real estate and housing loans, may also be extended to all eligible foreign nationals with valid visa issued by relevant Philippine authorities. Likewise, embassy officials and employees based in the Philippines are allowed to avail any type of Peso consumer loans. The enhancements are premised on the banks’ HOUSE SPEAKER AT SENATE.

FSCC assesses the effect of global growth moderation to PH

THE Financial Stability Coordination Council (FSCC) held its 4th quarter meeting and assessed the possible consequences of the emerging synchronized slowdown in growth. Building on new results from the behavioral models designed by the FSCC Secretariat, evidence that the market has entered into a “risk-off ’ mode was considered. A “risk-off ” condition describes a market situation when uncertainties have increased. As a result, some investors respond by tempering their risk appetite while more risk aggressive investors search for higher yields. “The Philippines continues to enjoy one of the highest growth rates in the world but the FSCC is taking the pre-emptive move of assessing the possible consequences of the global growth moderation,” said

SSS urges members to pay contributions online branches. SSS members who are ATM cardholders of a participating BancNet member can just pay their SSS contributions through BancNet Online at www. bancnetonline.com with no required registration, no transaction fees, and no extra charges. SSS members, who have accounts with UnionBank, may pay online via SSS Hub at their www.unionbankph. com website. Meanwhile, SSS members who are Globe or Touch Mobile prepaid users and postpaid subscribers may pay their contributions using Globe’s GCash facility. It is a free mobile application that allows members to pay their SSS contributions, salary loans, and real estate loans. OFW members may also pay for their Personal Equity and Savings Option (PESO) Fund contributions using the GCash App. SSS members and employers may simply register either by downloading the GCash app or dialing *143# to access the self-service menu using their Globe or TM mobile numbers. “Out of the 16.4 million paying members for the period January to September 2019, only a few use the online payment transactions. For the said period, there were only 706 employers

There was an increase though of 36 percent from 519 employers and 74 percent from the 5,795 self-employed, voluntary, OFWs members recorded during the same period in 2018,” Ignacio said. The number of employers who paid through UnionBank from January to September 2019, either online or over-the-counter, totaled to 46,087 while the number of self-employed, voluntary, OFWs members reached 19,641. Meanwhile, employers who paid using BancNet online stood at 6,295 from January to September 2019.

“We urge our members to use these facilities to avoid the hassle of queuing in banks and/or in SSS tellering,” Ignacio said. To pay for their contributions, members need to generate first their Payment Reference Number (PRN) at the My.SSS website for the real-time processing of contribution payments. “SSS is on its way to digital transformation as we continuously innovate and create programs that adapt to the needs of our members and make the processing of transactions easier and more efficient. We hope that our members will also be supportive of our programs amid the digitalization,” Ignacio said.

Our role as teachers in climate change By SHENEL JUNE M. SAJULGA Medina Comprehensive High School

CLIMATE change is now more than ever a relevant topic to be discussed in the classroom. In fact, I firmly believe that there should be a separate subject on the matter for at least one grade level (sixth graders perhaps?) so our students will be educated on their prospective roles as caretakers of the environment once they become adults. As adults, we certainly know on how climate change has killed thousands of lives due to erratic and unpredictable weather patterns. We know for a fact that Sendong has hit

areas that have never been hit by typhoons in the past, catching thousands by surprise that led to their eventual death. We are aware that kids as they are, elementary students are taught on not throwing garbage anywhere, on the importance of conserving water and electricity both in the home and in school, etc. But since they are transitioning into adolescents, they must gradually realize that they have a role to take care of Mother Earth in a bigger way. This is where our responsibility as educators will come in.

Ateneo de Davao backs MinDA programs via research, dev’t By DIGNA BANZON

DAVAO CITY -- The Ateneo de Davao University (AdDU) expressed its support for the programs of the Mindanao Development Authority (MinDA) through aid in research and development. Fr. Joel Tabora SJ, president of AdDU, made the commitment of support in research and field works on the various advocacies and programs of the agency, as cited in a press statement released by MinDA on Saturday. The pledge of support was made in a weekend forum held in the university after MinDA presented their programs particularly in addressing poverty, improving productivity, achieving lasting peace in Mindanao, and the institutionalization of the MinDA Tienda. MinDA Secretary Emmanuel Piñol, who graced the event, said the forum is aimed at teaching the youth on how they could participate and help in building Mindanao into a peaceful and progressive island. Among the programs which Tabora said that AdDU will support are the MinDA Tienda, Green Mindanao, and the MinDA Water. “MinDA Tienda aims to organize agriculture and fisheries stakeholders into a “corporative” which will own and operate outlets for goods needed in the rural communities to be sold at lower prices,” Piñol said. The MinDA Tienda serves as a marketing instrument for farmers and fisherfolk to protect them from profiteers. “Since the MinDA Tienda project is a work in progress, AdDU volunteered its College of Economics in fine-tuning the concept,” Piñol said. On the other hand, he added that Tabora and the students expressed keen interest in collaborating See BACKS, page 9

In August 2019, the Rotary Club of Metro Surigao recognized him as among the outstanding Surigaonons in the field of government service. The Rotary Outstanding Surigaonon Award (ROSA) award is the most prestigious award in Surigao del Norte, as it recognizes individuals and institutions that go beyond oneself, create a real difference, and touch the lives of many. In his acceptance speech Andanar said, “There is a volume of grateful emotions that are contained in the words, ‘Thank you.’ Let me summarize them by acknowledging that the Rotary Outstanding Surigaonon Award includes the people I am honored and privileged to serve,” On September 25, 2019, The Philippine Cancer Society Inc. (PCSI) named Andanar the “Most Effective Communicator” for his support of the organization’s cause. The PCSI in 2017 recognized Andanar

as among their “men of extraordinary influence.” Also, the National Press Club in October 2018 honored Andanar with lifetime membership and a plaque of appreciation in recognition of his efforts to protect journalists and increase transparency and accountability in governance. In November 2018, he was made an honorary member of the Cagayan De Oro Press Club, the oldest press club in the Philippines.
