Oro dodges bullet in Indo forest fires haze By MIKE BAÑOS Editor at large

CAGAYAN de Oro just dodged a bullet, so to speak, when the recent intrusion of haze from Indonesian forest fires proved relatively harmless. Here’s the good news and

the bad news: the particulate matter levels brought by the haze into the region were far above the danger thresholds set by the health and environment departments; luckily, perhaps, because at present, the city doesn’t have any equipment to monitor ambient air quality in real

time. Fortunately, the ambient air quality levels monitored by the Air Quality Monitoring Station of the Environment Management Bureau (EMB) in Iligan City which showed 93 micrograms per normal See bullet, page A11


Body to hold inquiry on rotating brownout today

By GERRY LEE GORIT Correspondent

THE Cagayan Electric Power and Light Company, Inc. (Cepalco) had no options left, but to impose rotating brownouts within its franchise areas starting Monday amid Mindanao’s lingering power crisis, said a senior Cepalco official on Tuesday. The power crisis remains, said Marilyn A. Chavez, senior manager

of the customer and community relations department of Cepalco, adding, that Cepalco has already been operating with reduced power supply. “It was further reduced. This is why we are forced to implement rotational brownouts,” she told Magnum radio. Chavez said the National Power Corporation (Napocor) reduced the power See POWER, page A11

CARMEN, Davao del Norte--A Cavendish banana producing company in Carmen received earlier today banana powder processing equipment from the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI). As part of the DTI’s Shared Service Facility program, Diamond Farm Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries Multipurpose Cooperative (DARBMUPCO) gained P1.87million worth of processing equipment. The facilities include banana chipper, mechanical dryer elevated solar drier with net cover and hammer mill with sifter. DTI Davao del Norte Provincial Director Romeo Castanaga emphasized that the equipment will be used to improve the lives of members and its community by using

Cavendish bananas. “I cannot call the bananas as rejects because they can still be eaten; they are just bananas who did not just meet the market standards,” Castanaga said. For more than two years, the cooperative are selling their ‘reject’ bananas to contractors that produces dried banana chips, which are then sold to companies that will process it to powder or pellets for industrial use or feeds. DARBMUPCO Manager Juan Pelenio said that the bananas that came from the cooperative’s 759-hectare plantation. Pelenio bared that the new facilities will be operationalized by the end of this year. He said that they will still undergo capability trainings with the DTI for the said equipment. (PIA11, Michael Uy)

Universities and personal branding IT is unfortunate when the development of talented human resources in a college or university tends to be ignored. The intangible asset seems to be paid less attention, especially in the organization with no view of the human capital cultivation strategy. The people with the best performance and the fame recognized by world public tend to get frustrated because of being badly-managed. We hope that it can never happen in a college or university in the global era. If so, it is really a nightmare. Colleges or universities need to be recognized worldwide in the global era. The more the college or universities are wellknown—both nationally and internationally—the more people pay attention to them. In the global era, information technology is the key factor to having the organizations globally well-known. However, so far, not all the managements have admitted the great effect of information and the global era on the organizations’ global image. Yet, the informa-

tion era has long time been predicted by Alvin Toffler (1974) when he envisioned the three eras of human life: agriculture, industries, and information. The latest era is today with its virtual world. Today is the era of information. Human capitals owned by any organization should be cultivated in order they can be the real assets intangibly. Even in a wider sense, a country that has a lot of qualified human capital can be beneficial. They can unitize the people potential to create the pride of the nation. In more specific scale, an organization with many qualified human resources can increase the image of the organization. For example,

when Steve Jobs was still alive, people always recognized his fame (even up to now). Indirectly, people think or imagine about the trademark of Apple. Indirectly, such image drags the people in the name of Technology Company called Apple. In general, personal branding of Steve Jobs can penetrate even the world public image toward Apple, both as the trademark and the name of an organization or company. This is finally the so-called personal branding. More specifically, as defined in Wikipedia, personal branding is the practice of people marketing themselves and their careers as brands. People can make their company recognized also due to their personal branding. Most importantly, the people themselves must be able to cultivate their potentials and create their personal brandings. The organization should create a good condition that makes their people able to cultivate their potentials. People should shape up See BRANDING, page A11

Our problem sometimes is that we’re looking for the wrong answer.

us. But He is. In fact, He’s answering needs in your life you don’t even know about! As one wise person prayed: “God, don’t punish me by giving me everything I ask for.” You see, many times we simply don’t know what will make us happy for the rest of our lives. We just want to be comfortable and happy for the moment right now. But God is trying to help us and make sure we are happy forever. So He’s trying to fix the bigger problem of our heart and relationship with Him our Maker. Does that mean Jesus doesn’t care about our suffering now? No, it’s just the opposite. Jesus cares very much! He knows exactly what it feels like to be hurt and suffer unfairly for something you didn’t do.

When God the Son Himself, Who was completely innocent, took all the pain and penalty for our wrongs and sins, He cried out to God the Father: “Why have you left me?” Even Jesus Himself, after He became a human being, did not get the answer He wanted right away. Was it fair? No. But it was God’s mercy and love for us and our only hope, since God the Son’s death was the only way He could forgive you and me to give us a new life. So why not put your life in the hands of your Maker Who loves you that much? Decide today to start living for Him His way, knowing that everything He does in your life is for your permanent happiness and success. Just Think a Minute.

For the chosen few? I HAVE been reading stories and reports in the newspapers on the struggles and sufferings of Lumads. The murder of Lumad leaders and p o l i t i - From the mail cians. The closure of schools and tagging of teachers as members of the New Peoples’ Army. I have also read opinions, dissenting or favorable, and have respected it as a manifestation of our freedom and uniqueness. I agree that we, all Filipinos should be united and in solidarity with the Lumads in their struggles, suffering and fight against abuses and their oppressors. However, I also believe that we should also remain optimistic, justified and equal in giving our opinions and in appreciating the information that may come our way. The effort of our fellow brothers and sisters who stand as support groups of the families of the murdered Lumads and the oppressed are beyond compare, like what nongovernmental organizations have been doing. The determination of the people who continued to fight for the Lumads, like the Manilakbayan is worthy of our salute for their unending support. If all our hearts are like them, full of burning desire to help the poor, then this country will continue to live and will be progressive in time. But as I acknowledge, recognize and appreciate what they have been doing, they are also points that I want to raise and begged to be clarified. I believe that while we are emotional to what our Lumads have become, we should remain logical and calm. It is obvious that what moved these organizations to pity the Lumads was the murder of Samarca, Campos and Sinzo in Surigao del Sur. What made these organizations furious about was the reason why the Lumads fled from their homes—militarization. What these organizations have been nagging about, the closure of schools like Salugpungan. But have these organizations considered other information that led to the situation they been frantic?

Mindanao Daily News photo by Mark Francisco By MARK FRANCISCO Staff member


ORE than 200 pregnant women from the eastern part of Cagayan de Oro graced the Safe Motherhood caravan of Intellicare and Philippine Business for Social Progress (PBSP) Monday (October 26) at the covered court of Barangay Consolacion.

With the theme BABAE: Malusog, Ligtas, Handa, the Safe Motherhood Caravan is the first joint venture of Intellicare under its H.E.A.L.S. (Health, Environment, Aid, Livelihood, Sustainability) corporate social responsi-

bility and PBSP this year. It previously held the legs of the Safe Motherhood Caravan last August 26 in Cabanglasan, Bukidnon and on September 11 in Nazareth, Cagayan de Oro City. Although there was no ready data available on the prevalence of maternal mortality in Northern Mindanao, Dennis Alcy Ellorimo of PBSP emphasized that there is still a need to lecture would-be mothers on how to take care of themselves during these precarious moments. Thus, the women of Consolacion and neighboring barangays listened to lectures on prenatal/postnatal care, tetanus toxoid, danger signs, newborn screening, breastfeeding and family planning, immunization and proper nutrition. There was also a film


showing on Unang Yakap emphasizing on embracing the baby immediately after birth before placing it in the nursery. Early child development advocate Dr. Reuben Daba also graced the affair and encouraged the mothers to listen to the advice of expert lecturers Dr. Maria Elen Santua, Dr. Rachel Dilla, nutritionist Nenita Rabe and Hilmyrita Mencede, RN, so their children would nurture holistically and grow as healthy normal and responsible adults in society. Intellicare is one of the largest HMO providers in the Philippines. PBSP is the largest business-led social development organization in the country committed to poverty reduction, with more than 260 membercompanies in its fold.

DavNor Guv reminds important role of media in 2016 elections TAGUM City--During the celebration of the Press Freedom Month yesterday at the Bulwagan ng Lalawigan, Governor Rodolfo del Rosario reminded the media practitioners on their vital role during the May 2016

elections. Governor del Rosario emphasized that the integrity of the media practitioners will be tested on this coming elections. “So, I ask you to adhere to professional standards of impartiality, accuracy

and responsibility to draw out the plans of the candidates on critical issues without bias,” Del Rosario said. “It is your duty to report accurately and thoroughly what the candidates and parties stand on important

public policy issues so that the Dabaonons can decide on themselves on whom to vote,” he added. Del Rosario also stressed that it is the responsibility of the media to present objective and balance coverage of the

election as it is important in shaping the destiny of our province and of our country. He asked the media not to involve controversies especially personal in nature with their reporting. “Please do away with

such kind of reporting that primarily focuses on controversies faced by the candidates, especially those personal in nature hat has nothing to do with their advocacies and platforms of governance.” (PIA11, Michael Uy)

DAVAO City--The National Nutrition Council (NNC) 11 intensified its campaign for the use of iodized salt to counter iodine deficiency that is common among children from 16 to 12 years old and pregnant women. Speaking during the Kapehan sa Dabaw at SM City on Monday, Dr. Maria Theresa Ungson, NNC 11 coordinator, encouraged consumers to use iodized salt as this is the most affordable alternative to seafood in order to fill in the iodine

deficiency which can lead to thyroid, hypothyroidism and mental retardation among infants. She added mothers who suffer from iodine deficiency disorder during their pregnancy may affect the intelligence quotient of the babies. “That’s already 13 points down in the infant’s IQ level,” she said. She highlighted the importance of proper storage of the iodized salt at home, ensuring that it is kept in a

closed container because an “opened package of table salt with iodine may rapidly lose its iodine content through the process of oxidation and iodine sublimination.” The Food and Drugs Administration (FDA) is also monitoring and testing the iodized salt being sold at the local markets if it is properly packed because they should comply with the 30 to 70 parts per million (ppm) requirement while 15 ppm when it reaches the households. “Kung hindi tama ang

pagka-store mag-escape ang iodine. We are more on regulation and monitoring our iodized salt in the marktet,” she said. She admitted though that most of the available salt in the market are not iodine fortified because these are much cheaper. The FDA defines iodine as “an element that is needed for the production of thyroid hormone. The body does not make iodine, so it is an essential part of your diet. Iodine is found in various foods. If you do not have

enough iodine in your body, you cannot make enough thyroid hormone.” “Iodine deficiency is the world’s most prevalent, yet easily preventable, cause of brain damage. Today, we are on the verge of eliminating it – an achievement that will be hailed as a major public health triumph that ranks with getting rid of smallpox and poliomyelitis,” it added. FDA-Davao supervisor Deborah S. Legaspi added they are also monitoring the two licensed iodized salt manufacturers in the city to

make sure that they have complied with the standards set by the agency. The licensed manufacturers bear the Diamond Sangkap Pinoy Seal (DSPS) on the packing of their products based on the FDA circular issued in April 20015. Legaspi added that the agency conducts a postmarket surveillance and require the suppliers to secure license from them, although most of the iodized salt in the local market are coming from other regions.

Lumad leaders in Caraga fear more reprisal from NPA

BUTUAN City -- A day before the burial of slain Loreto, Agusan del Sur Mayor Dario Otaza and his son, Daryl, Lumad leaders here expressed fears they might suffer the same fate in the hands of the New People’s Army. Datu Payad Sangkoan Ray Cervantes, chair of the Caraga Regional Council for the Indigenous Peoples, said many Lumad leaders are also making a stand against the NPA like the slain mayor. Cervantes said Otaza was not the first Lumad leader killed by the rebels for opposing their expansion. “If the NPA can murder Mayor Otaza who had bodyguards and influence, you can imagine what they

will do to Lumad leaders who do not have the same resources,” he said. He said a report from the Mindanao Indigenous Peoples Conference said that 357 Lumad leaders were killed by NPA rebels from 1998 to 2008. Mayor Otaza and his son, Daryl, were abducted and murdered by NPA rebels who posed as National Bureau of Investigation agents in Butuan City last Oct. 19. They were scheduled to be buried Wednesday at the Uraya Memorial Gardens here. Cervantes said many of the Lumad leaders are not armed like the Bagani warriors and have no ties with Datu Calpit Egua and the

Tejero brothers who were tagged in the murder of director of a school for Lumad and two of his companions in Surigao del Sur last Sept. 1. “Many of our leaders are only armed with and antiquated rifles and are no match to the well-armed NPA rebels,” he said. Some 500 supporters of the slain mayor staged an anti-communist rally at the Guingona Park here on Tuesday. Displaying placards asking for justice for the slain mayor and his son, the rallyists who were composed mostly of Lumads from Agusan del Sur denounced the NPA rebels for killing the two victims without the

benefit of a trial. “Is this what they call revolutionary justice? They did not even ask the victims to answer the charges that they were accused of,” Datu Makahinlo Gubat Marcos Gonzales said. The NPA claimed responsibility for killing Otaza and his son “to give justice to the thousands of indigenous peoples and peasants terrorize by their tyranny in Loreto and surrounding municipalities in Agusan Del Sur.” The rebel group also alleged Daryl was distributing and selling illegal drugs in Agusan del Sur. Wilfredo Otaza, younger brother of the slain mayor, denied all these accusa-

tions. He said his brother was only working for the development of Loreto, a riverside town. “My brother was mur-

dered without being given the chance to answer these charges,” Wilfredo said. (Froilan Gallardo/MindaNews)

Public warned vs buying unregistered coffee brand Editorial: e-mail: • Advertising: e-mail: Contact: 0917-7121424, 0947-8935776


By Antonio L. Colina IV of MindaNews

AVAO City––The Food and Drug Administration in Region 11 on Monday warned consumers not to buy Sehat Badan coffee that is believed to have entered the local market through other backdoor regions in Mindanao.

FDA-Davao supervisor Deborah S. Legaspi said during the Kapehan sa Dabaw at SM City the agency started observing last year the presence of this unregistered coffee being sold on sidewalks and other outlets. The agency has so far confiscated around 1,000 boxes of Sehat Badan coffee, following an advisory from the FDA national office after finding out that it contained paracetamol, ibuprofen, steroid, and diclofenac sodium. She believed these products easily reached the city because it is accessible by land. She said consumers of this coffee might find relief from illnesses asthma, hypertension, joint pains and arthritis, after drinking the coffee because of its drug contents. But in truth it has no health benefits, she said. “In our seminar, we always talk about this coffee. It is not just our concern but also of everybody,” she added. Legaspi warned consuming Sehat Badan coffee might result in a condition called “moon face” often associated with steroid treatment or death due to organ failure. There have been no reports of intoxication due to the product in Davao Region

but the agency reported many cases in Manila, she said. In its public health warning advisory, the FDA said the coffee claimed to be an herbal drink that “promotes and enhances general well-being and treat various diseases such as asthma, urinary stones, allergy, impotence, rheumatism, toothache,” but such claims is not approved by the FDA. The coffee has no English translation on its packing, violating FDA’s Administrative Order 88-B, or the rules and regulations governing the “labeling of prepackaged food products distributed in the Philippines.” The order requires imported food products with labels in foreign language to also carry the corresponding English translation, “otherwise such products shall not be permitted for local distribution.” “Products marketed as food supplement without English translation pose harm to the consumers since consumers will have no better understanding of the true nature of the health product they purchased. “These product definitely did not pass the FDA standard of safety and quality, therefore, public health is at stake,” the advisory added.

Ateneos adopt ‘Healing Earth’ e-textbook integrating ethics, spirituality and action Ateneo schools in the country have agreed to adopt, in whole or in part, the Healing Earth, a Jesuit environmental science e-textbook that calls attention to the most pressing environmental issues of our time, and fully integrates the perspectives of ethics, spirituality and action. The Ateneos came together during the Jesuit Higher Education Commission (JHEC) meeting in September. At Xavier University, the presentation of the Healing Earth e-Science textbook was facilitated by the College

of Arts and Sciences and attended by 25 faculty members from the departments of Biology, Chemistry, Religious Studies, Philosophy and English. Dr Hilly Ann Roa-Quiaoit, XU vice-president for Research and Social Outreach, and one of the e-book’s authors, hopes that the students will be able to view environmental science through the Ignatian lenses of ethics and spirituality, and be moved toward becoming responsible stewards of our ever-changing planet. Over 90 scholars from Jesuit

colleges and universities worldwide wrote the e-book, which took more than three years to complete. Quiaoit’s significant knowledge and contributions in environmental conservation can be read in the chapter on Biodiversity. XU is excited about this new educational platform, which will help bolster the learning experience and research collaborations in the university. The Healing Earth is accessible through its website healingearth.

DOST eyes rice sufficiemcy via remote sensing technologies

A cutting edge technology called remote sensing will help boost the country’s rice production, according to a scientist. Remote sensing uses satellite imagery and ground data processing to generate data and information on agricultural conditions. During the recent 2015 Asian Conference on Remote Sensing, Dr. Enrico Paringit, explained that through the said technology, experts can make an inventory of the agricultural resources and immediately discover any irregularities in the crops before these spread. Paringit is the program leader of the Department of Science and Technology’s (DOST) Disaster Risks Exposure Assessment for Mitigation (DREAM). “The El Niño phenomenon was detected using remote sensing technolo-

gies,” said Paringit while explaining the benefits of remote sensing technologies in the areas of agriculture, forestry, and disaster mitigation. Remote sensing is the technology used in getting information on an object or phenomenon without making any physical contact. It is done through aerial scanning of a location or through satellite images. “We can say that remote sensing is more like feeling without touching,” says Paringit. Under the DREAM program which Paringit heads, DOST will be sending two microsatellites in two years starting 2016 to enable the remote transmission of data. These images will be verified using data coming from other sources. The data which will be obtained on a daily basis

and will be sent to a ground receiving station in Subic, Zambales. The station, to be called the Philippine Earth Data Resources and Observation Center (PEDRO), will provide crops and climate experts with information on a particular area’s vegetation conditions. Also, it will receive, process, and distribute spatial data to provide government officials with intelligent decision-making tool on various areas of concern such as the occurrence of pests, annual yield of rice to prevent shortages in the production, and other issues. “Just imagine, we can now determine if our rice production is sufficient by comparing our annual yield data against our needs. Through this we can now have empirical basis if there is a real need to import rice

so we can truly help our local farmers in optimizing their profits,” said Paringit. Initially, PEDRO will run for two years and promises to strengthen the country’s capabilities in weather information and forecasting as well as in forest and agricultural resource assessment. According to Dr. Gay Perez, president of the Philippine Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society, the recent remote sensing conference aims to update the country’s experts on the latest technologies and enable participants to take a peek at what global leaders in remote sensing are working on in the past years. The country likewise presented its initiatives on Phil-LiDAR technology, a high-resolution hazards mapping of the 15 major river systems and the two microsatellite program.

Bridestory’s vendor app, Bridestory Pro now available!

Say I do to Bridestory Southeast Asia’s leading wedding marketplace earning trust of vendors A Southeast Asian company is taking the wedding industry by storm. Using technology to their advantage, Bridestory connects wedding professionals to couples across the globe in the most convenient way possible. It is the leading wedding marketplace in the region. “Wedding vendors are very good at what they do, however, not all of them can market their brands in an appropriate way, which is an important factor for success. Bridestory is here to solve that problem,” said Kevin Mintaraga, Chief Executive Officer of Bridestory. The platform works both as an inspiration site and a directory of wedding professionals. Through Bridestory, couples can get inspirations from a catalogue of works accomplished by professionals. Bridestory also enables wedding professionals to expand their reach by providing an avenue for couples around the world to contact them easily. After launching in January 2014, Bridestory has garnered the trust of couples and vendors in its home country, Indonesia, as well as from neighbours such as Singapore and Australia. Over 15,000 vendors from 39 countries, including 12,000 hailing from the Southeast Asian region, are doing business with the help of Bridestory. Vendors

are categorized based on their expertise, be it dress and attire or photography, among others. Bridestory already has 200 local vendors shortly after launching their Philippine website ( last August. “Bridestory has a good reputation overseas for featuring the best wedding inspiration for readers and serving as a channel for different suppliers to feed the needs of particular clients,” said Sheena Caburog of Mayad Studios, who signed up in August. ”We expect for Bridestory to continue upholding the same here in the Philippines, inspiring couples to get the best for the best days of their lives,” Caburog added.

Be faithful in your assignment The Gospel of Jesus Christ (October29, 2015Thursday) Matthew 1:18-24” Then Joseph her husband, being a just [man], and not willing to make her a public example, was minded to put her away privately. But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her

is of the Holy Ghost. And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shall call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins. Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us: Die for what is right because

at the end, heaven will be your reward. God trust you so much for giving you someone under your care and protection. He expects you to love this person no matter what. He wants you to push this person for him to fulfill his divine assignments on this earth. He believes on your capacity to make a big difference to somebody else. It is not an accident for having someone in your life. They are sent by God for a reason. You are responsible

for their welfare and benefits. You are accountable for their better future. You are not born for yourself but for others. You are born to do something great for the sake of others. You have an assignment to produce more fruits on this earth. You are born to save the situation of others like Joseph. You are born to ensure anyone to finish his assignment. Encourage anyone to become positive by showing your supports to them.

Biblical reflection Be faithful in your assignment. Joseph was assigned to protect Jesus and Mary. You have the same assignment if you are a husband; do the same to your family. Love them the way Joseph Loved his own family. Love them by showing it in action. Love them by making their lives more colorful and meaningful: Printing paid by: Neneth Ranoa - Bobong Balino- Edith Ranoa, PhD- Tony Jordan – Cagayan De Oro: My new

“Tell me and I will forget, Show me and I will remember, Involve me in the process and I will understand” is our common principle in teaching to assure maximum student participation especially during classroom instruction. We also believed on the “TABULA RASA” philosophy, that children are Blank Tablets that must be filled with right and useful knowledge. It is always a challenge to all teachers to feed our students with a very fruitful and useful knowledge. Giving them mediocre knowledge will discourage our students to continue on their studies because they will feel that they learn nothing from the teaching-learning process. Every meeting should always be a meaningful and worthwhile experience not only of the teachers but also on the part of the students. This can only be made possible if the teacher

is resourceful enough to upgrade his/her knowledge and patient enough to modify his/her strategies to cater to the needs of the students entrusted to our care. Sometimes we are too arrogant to pretend we know everything. Sometimes we feel too superior to see our students suffer from their assignments, projects, roleplays, portfolios and the like without even considering their other concerns. With this, we are not helping our students. We are just requiring too much work from them to hide our incompetence. Teachers should always have in mind that the best strategy that we know ten years or fifteen years ago might not be that appealing to the students that we have today. Like for example, the “Chalk Talk” method that we used many years back is no match to the PICTURE TALK using the PowerPoint Presentation of today. Now is the high time to take the challenge of the new generation. Now is the time to upgrade and enhance our teaching skills and strategies. The Collaborative Learning and Professional Enhancement of Araling Panlipunan

R.A. 9048 Form No.10.1 (LCR O)

Teachers is the best step to share, propagate, inquire, experiment and apply useful knowledge in order to make the teachinglearning process enjoyable and exciting. Araling Panlipunan teachers can share anything which they think can best help the students in understanding the lesson. It can be news, weather situation, local happening, sports, and the like. It can also be strategies or new teaching techniques which will make learning easy and fun. This is also a good opportunity to select best speakers to be tapped for seminars and symposia in the future. This will also help a lot in increasing the NAT Result in the area of Araling Panlipunan. Most specially, this is a way of building self-confidence because we will be trained to speak to people on our level. This is not a form of “intellectual grandstanding” but an avenue to ask, inquire, share, learn, advise or even laugh together and build a healthy relationship with fellow teacher. Strive to bring out the best in ourselves in order to bring out the best to others.

Hon. Secretary Proceso J. Alcala, through the Department of Agriculture (DA) as he said, “dili buta ug bungol si Secretary nga dili makakita sa panginahanglanon sa mga mag-uuma, tungod kay sa kanunay gipaabot sa gobyerno ang panginahanglanon sa mga mag-uuma.” (The Secretary is not blind and deaf to not respond to the needs of the farmers because the government always provided the needs of the farmers).

their attitudes and even language. What they frequently do, think, and even tweet, post on social media, or even chat very often can define their personal branding. Yet, all should be directed into their own potentials. Implicitly, when an organization has more people who are always trying to develop themselves and finally have got their fame for their personal branding, this organization is lucky. This is because these people with their established careers can lead the company to its worldwide recognition. The more acknowledged the people the organization have, the more the organization recognized by world public. The people with their personal brandings benefit the college or university as well. Unfortunately, the intangible asset like this has rarely been paid attention. The college or university management tends to pay attention the day-to-day operation which is actually the daily routine. This is not a strategic level, but operational level, which drags you into boredom—no innovation and creativity or living in the same standard forever. Intangible assets are more important in the global era. College or university as an organization should be able to manage their human capital. They should also be able to detect their people with their careers and make the people inspired to develop their potentials. This is really critical in many developing countries. When the college or university finds their people talented and improved they tend to forget to nurture them. It is important to have very potential human capital. Human capital is a collection of resources. The people should have the best knowledge, talents, skills, abilities, experience. They can also increase expertise with their intelligence. By the time they have known their potentials, they can create their personal branding. They have to cultivate, even if necessary, they have to reinvent. The people in that college or university are the intangible assets. They are the resources with their total capacity representing a form of wealth. This is finally making the qualified and well-known people to become the icons for the organizations—that is the personal branding being cultivated by the people themselves but beneficial also for their college or university. ••• Dr. Djuwari Sarkawi is the Director of Language Laboratory, STIE Perbanas Surabaya.

Have they considered other Lumads who were also killed and are also worthy of seeking justice? Have they considered why militaries are in operating in the hinterlands? Have they considered why these schools were closed and look closely what the students of these schools will be in the future? In sympathizing and in doing things to help the Lumads, as Filipinos, we should be one and united, but we should not be selective of who we should just help and just what we should care about. Yes, I agree to one editorial I have read, we can only demand of the government and not to the other forces like the NPA. But can we not explicitly condemn them? Can they not be equally liable for what happened to the Lumads? Should they be protected in the cocoons of organizations while they are free doing every damn thing they want? Frankly, in my mind, I have been asking myself, why these support groups cannot even create a single condemnation rally against the NPA? Why are they mum on matters that were publicly admitted by NPA as a result of their revolutionary justice? Why? Melody Arias

The NGCP said the plant was isolated from the grid at 9:14 a.m. on October 27 when Agus 2 and Agus 1 138-kV tie line tripped and could not be repaired immediately because of the uncooperative landowner, Mr. Mitmug Dimaampao. He is the same landowner who previously barred NGCP linemen from entering the property to cut trees which obstruct the transmission lines, the NGCP said in its latest advisory. It added the tie line was finally energized at the Agus 2 switchyard side at 11:37 in the morning.

the efforts to restore power, said the NGCP. “NGCP reiterates its appeal for the public’s cooperation and warns that right of way violations along transmission lines compromise not just the safety of the people, but also the security of the power grid. Because of Mindanao’s current power situation, the isolation of any power plant from the grid may result in more load curtailment during peak hours to allocate whatever power is available to the rest of the customers,” the advisory said a little else. Cepalco, the fourth largest electric service company in the country, franchise areas cover 65 barangays of the city of Cagayan de Oro and the towns of Tagoloan, Villanueva and Jasaan, all in the province of Misamis Oriental, including the 3,000-hectare Phividec Industrial Estate. Chavez said Cepalco has divided its service areas into three groups where Group 1 will experience a power interruption from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., while Group 2 will have no power supply from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. and Group 3 will experience a power interruption from 5 p.m. to 9 in the morning. She, however, clarified that the rotating brownouts within the Cepalco franchise areas will only last for two hours and 30 minutes. Inquiry THE City Council committee on Energy, chaired by Councilor Teodolfo Lao, will meet today (October 29, 2015) at 2 in the afternoon at the City Council conference room with representatives of Cepalco and NGCP. The committee will inquire from both power distributors the contributing factors to the scheduled four-hour rotating brownout in the city. Privatization In another development, the committee endorsed a resolution supporting Resolution No. 240-2015 of the Sangguniang Panlalawigan of Misamis Oriental urging the national government through the Power Sector Assets and Liabilities Management Corporation (PSALM) to defer the privatization of STEAG State Power Inc.-Independent Power Producer Administration (STEAG-IPPA). The committee believes that the privatization of Steag-IPPA will lead to a substantial increase in the rates paid by Mindanao power consumers. With a report from ELB

vironmental Compliance & Monitoring Division, EMB-10. According to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA), this was a direct result of the shifting of prevailing winds from South West (SW) in October 18 to North East (NE) or the opposite direction, thus dissipating the haze over the region. However, the Department of Health clarified it only considers the level of particulates a danger to persons at risk, it exceeds 154 g/Ncm, said Dr. David A. Mendoza, head of the Regional Epidemiology and Surveillance Unit (RESU) of Department of Health (DOH) in Region 10. Mendoza said the RESU only issues an advisory for people at risk (i.e., with cardiac/pulmonary conditions) to wear protective masks when going outdoors when the PM2.5 levels exceed 155. And it is only when the 354 g/Ncm is breached will all people be advised to wear masks, he added. PM2.5is a fine particle found in smoke and haze, and can be directly emitted from sources such as forest fires or may form when gases emitted from power plants, industries and vehicles react in the air. Once inhaled, these particles can affect the heart and lungs and cause serious health problems. EMB-10 used to have a remote Continuous Emission Monitoring Station (CEMS) at the Xavier University-Ateneo de Cagayan engineering building at its downtown campus, which was directly linked to its Swedish-made Opsis neon open path system and two at the STEAG 210MW coalfired power plant in Villanueva, Misamis Oriental. However, since 2010 the remote CEMS station in Xavier University has been out of order. “We have requested P4million for our 2016 budget for its rehabilitation, which is now under consideration by our head office,” Dominguez said. When it is rehabilitated, the station will be transferred to the Mindanao University of Science and Technology (MUST) while another new one which has been approved for procurement will be installed uptown at the Xavier University-Ateneo de Cagayan High School, Upper Canitoan. Two more proposed stations in Ozamiz City, Misamis Occidental and Malaybalay City, Bukidnon have also been lined up for procurement. “At present, only Iligan station is operational. Hopefully, the four additional stations could be operational by December this year,” Dominguez said.

cubic meter (g/Ncm) for PM2.5 (fine particulates) and 110g/Ncm for PM10 (normal particulates) monitored last October 18 had already declined to only 30 g/Ncm for PM2.5 (well below the 75 g/Ncm threshold), and 58 for PM10 (or 1/3 below the 150 g/ from page A1 recruitment activity loNcm threshold), according to Engr.

tors monitored by the MEI, the IT/Telecom/ ISP sector saw the steepest year-overyear growth for the second consecutive month at 16%. This is also its steepest increase since March 2015. The only other sector seeing a positive year-over-year growth is the BFSI industry, at 10%. The Production/ Manufacturing, Automotive and Ancillary sector continued to fare the worst with a -56% year-over-year dip. However, despite the overall poor performance, this is a slight improvement from the -62% year-over-year growth between August 2014 and 2015. Across the 10 occupational groups surveyed by the Index, jobs in Customer Service witnessed the greatest year-over-year growth at 6%. It was also the only occupation that saw positive year-over-year growth in September. Demand for Hospitality and Travel jobs in September remained weak, at -47% year-overyear growth. “Although online hiring across the Philippines remains less active overall this September when compared to the same month last year, the latest MEI data indicate a significant recovery. This is mostly down to increased recruitment in a handful of industries – namely IT, Telecom/ISP and BFSI – which are picking up hiring as foreign businesses are encouraged to expand their operations into the Philippines,” said Sanjay Modi, managing director of (India, Middle East, Southeast Asia, Hong Kong). “The country’s outsourcing industry is expected to grow further and increase job creation locally. For example, as the US adopts a highly detailed medical diagnosis coding system for insurance claims, the Philippines is in a good position to provide talent, thanks to its large pool of medical graduates. The BFSI sector is also set to look up, as more bank branches open up across the nation.” The Monster Employment Index Philippines is a monthly gauge of online job posting activity, based on a real-time review of millions of employer job opportunities culled from a large representative selection of career websites and online job listings across the Philippines. The Index does not reflect the trend of any one advertiser or source, but is an aggregate measure of the change in job listings across the industry.

Nature-inspired project visits Camiguin, brings in investment opportunities

Cagayan de Oro, Misamis Oriental-“Camiguin Island is just few hours away from Cagayan de Oro and it’s a perfect location for Pirmavera to create a healthy business relationship between CdO and Camiguin. We want to create partnerships with the active business sectors in the island since Primavera Residences is a good earning investment,” Ryan Fajardo, Internal Sales Head of Primavera Residences, said. Last 19-22 October, Primavera Residences Sales and Marketing team experienced Camiguin’s remarkable sunsets, astonishing bays, and its spectacular mountains, just in time for the province’s 36th Lanzones Festival. “Camiguin is known for

its rich natural resources. Nature preservation has always been its top priority in promoting their island. The province of Camiguin and Primavera Residences have the same advocacy that we actively promote as we build natureinspired developments,” Cesar Stefan Rago, Public Relations and Marketing Officer of Primavera Residences, declared. Camiguin is a tourist’s haven. Unspoilt beaches, powdery white sand, hot springs, majestic falls – name it. For the adventurous, there are also volcanoes to climb and jungles to trek, and for the foodies, mouthwatering authentic Italian cuisine and fresh bounties from the sea are waiting to satisfy the next visitor. Camiguin is especially wonderful to visit at this

time of the year due to its annual Lanzones Festival. With a series of attractions lined up for the whole festival season, visitors are set to be amazed and fall deeper in love with the island. Bringing investment opportunities to the island Primavera Residences, a multi-awarded mixeduse development in Cagayan de Oro, visited the island of Camiguin last October 19 – 22 with

the event highlight held at Villa Paraiso Resort at Mamabajao, Camiguin to conduct series of events aimed at introducing the condominium property to Camiguinons. The event highlighted points to prospective investors from Camiguin as Primavera is considered a very safe investment, offers good returns in a growing alternative market, located in CdO which is as an

emerging economy in the Philippines, and a rising travel and tourism destination in Northern Mindanao. The investment yields approximately 8% ROI per annum, thereby contributing to a very attractive opportunity for property investors. Planning to visit Northern Mindanao soon? Primavera Residences offers condo units available for short-term

and long-term rent or for purchase. You can also talk to us and we’ll love to share with you the amazing spots you can visit in the region – the lovely Camiguin Island among those in the list.
