Jobs crisis bolsters bleak poverty situation THE economic think tank Ibon Foundation has urged the government to immediately address the country’s jobs crisis amid the unchanged poverty situation in the country. The group said poverty is strongly correlated to unemployment, and government cannot expect poverty

to improve without creating enough jobs. The official poverty statistics show that poverty in the first half of 2012 was unchanged from the same periods of 2006 and 2009. According to Ibon, this is highlighted by the jobless situation in the country, which also stayed at the

same level in the period 2006-2012. This is consistent with the essentially unchanged poverty incidence of 27.928.8 percent in the same period. The real unemployment rate remained at 10.5-11.1 percent in the last six years. The unemployment rate

was generally declining between 1985 (12.6 percent) and 1997 (8.8 percent), during which time official poverty incidence correspondingly also fell from 44.2 percent (1985) to 31.8 percent (1997). The unemployment rate soared after 1997 to poverty | page 11

Army commander likens NPAs to Abu Sayaff terrorists CAMP EVANGELISTA, Cagayan de Oro City––A top official of the army’s 4th Infantry Division here likened the New People’s Army (NPA) rebels to the Abu Sayyaf terrorists. Brig. Gen. Ricardo Visaya, commander of the army’s 4th ID, made the statement Thursday in recalling the ambuscade of the convoy of Gingoog city Mayor Ruthie Guingona in Misamis Oriental last week. Visaya said that the NPAs were like the Abu Sayyaf terrorists, robbers, and bandits although the descriptions were not enough. He challenged the NPA rebels to take on the military rather than sow terror and anguish among innocent civilians. Visaya, however, assured the people under his area of responsibility that the military would continue to deliver its mandate as protector of the people. “The NPAs efforts to sow terror in the countryside would not hinder the military in pursuing its objective of attaining peace and protecting the well-being of the state and its people,” Visaya added.

Truck burned over extortion By SPO1 Philip Amer P Mazo

CAMP RODRIGUEZ, Butuan City – Five fullyarmed members of the New People’s Army (NPA) recently burned a tenwheeler Saddam truck in Sitio San Antonio, Brgy San Roque, Bislig City. The truck driver, Bebot Tampos, reported to the police that while cruising Road 41 of said barangay, he and his helper Bebe Macaylas, as well as their motorcycle-riding escort Mario Ytac, were flagged down and ordered to disembark by the armed men, led by Commander Renato Sayatsat of Front Committee 14. Both Tampos and Macaylas were hogtied by the rebels, who subsequently torched the truck before leaving with Ytac and his motorcycle. The two, however, managed to untangle themselves and went home. Ytac has yet to be accounted for, as of press time.

Caraga receives P9.5M AusAID educational support By Keneath John O. Bolisay

SURIGAO DEL NORTE - The Australian Government Overseas Aid program, through the Australian Agency for International Development (AusAID), together with the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD), have recently turned-over educational facilities worth P9,588,295 to this province. Such facilities included five day care centers, three pre-school buildings and two elementar y school buildings, constructed in Pilar town under DSWD’s community-driven development (CDD) program, called Kalahi-CIDSS. Kalahi-CIDSS – Comprehensive and Integrated Delivery of Social Services is one of government’s flagship programs designed to reduce poverty by bringing back the power to the people to decide on development projects that will answer their basic needs. “We are very delighted that the Australian government, through the DSWD has looked into the situation of our educational facilities here,” said Pi-

lar Town Mayor Lucio T. Gonzales during the sub-project turn-over in his municipality, April 19. It was learned that the DSWD has found out in the social investigation that either a certain barangay in said town lacks a school building or the building needs major repair. The municipality of Pilar has been a recipient of Kalahi-CIDSS for the last five years. Since 2006, 34 infrastructure projects, like footbridges, water systems, postharvest facilities and road rehabilitation projects, among others, have been constructed in the area by community volunteers. According to DSWD

Caraga Regional Director Minda B. Brigoli, the Australian government has utilized a two-pronged approach in aiding the Philippine government in the fight against poverty. Through Kalahi-CIDSS, community volunteers are able to do their part in constructing the supply side of the Pantawid Pamilyang

Pilipino Program (4Ps). “The Kalahi-CIDSS – AusAID Project is serving the supply side of the beneficiaries of 4Ps. Thus the operation in Kalahi-CIDSS areas will greatly help the children beneficiaries to meet the conditions set by 4Ps by improving their access to early childhood development and basic

“Malaria cases in the province have been decreasing and hopefully in the coming years, we will be declared as a Malariafree province’,” stressed Dr. Campado.

First, Rufus is a lawmaker and Moreno, is not only a former lawmaker himself, but an ally to Gloria Macapagal Arroyo. Well, not anymore today as Moreno, who run and won under the Lakas, is now a candidate under the Liberal Party of former

Come what may Ruel Villanueva Pelone Senator Mar Roxas, now the secretary of the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG). Moreno has been criticized badly for his failure to give on time the salaries of Capitol employees while Rufus, including his brother Maxie, is said to be giving poor salaries to their respective staffmembers. I hope it’s not true. We

deserve an explanation to this allegation. Rufus and Moreno are birds of the same feather because they are both lawmakers but Moreno is a mismatched in terms of accomplishments as against Rufus. What I only knew about Moreno when he was acting like congressman is that he stood up as member of the

Other than being a member of the prosecution panel, I can no longer remember any accomplishments that Moreno had delivered to his constituents in Misamis Oriental. Now that Moreno’s term as governor of the province of Misamis Oriental, he’s trying to get city hall with the battle cry: “Change.” Changed? Cagayan de Oro has changed from being a ruralized city into a booming highly urbanized city. What changes can we expect from Moreno then when he even failed to change the lives of the many poor in Misamis Oriental.

Discard the pretentious candidates AN election season always exposes the incompetence of the government. It is a time when candidates deliver a litany of promises. Promises that candidates simply forget when elected to office. Anything new? However, what makes the election important is seeing candidates running for reelection. These candidates mumble the same platform of government. These candidates Cris Diaz bolster the people’s belief that these candidates had made the government irrelevant and inutile. For instance, those running for reelection talked about improved basic services in government. As usual, these services involved health, education, poverty, and employment. The electorates simply wonder what these people had accomplished when they were in office. For instance, a candidate running for reelection has been in Congress for two consecutive terms and yet achieved nothing of value. The Congress has the Upper and Lower Houses – the Senate and the House of Representatives. The candidates talked about free education, free health services, and employment as their major platforms of government. Have these candidates not been in office before? Why talked only these issues when election season comes? What have these candidates done in Congress? For instance, there are candidates who are now running for the Senate after serving in the House of

Representatives. It is unfortunate that these candidates talked about improved basic services once elected into office. Obviously, these candidates accomplished nothing as representatives. It is very disgusting albeit frustrating that almost all candidates that poverty and inadequate health services only become noticeable as a “problem” when election season comes. It is discouraging to think that almost all candidates are agreeable that commercialized education and malignant unemployment problems breeds an impoverished nation when election season comes. While acknowledging the lack or inadequate extension of basic services to the impoverished masses, candidates remember only this predicament during the election campaign period. This means that those elected into office simply attend to the needs of their pockets while serving their term of office. Although it might sound preposterous, it is of public knowledge that most elected officials become “silent millionaires” after serving their terms. The electorates know that there are exceptional elected public servants. It is, however, sad that the electorates always elect the hypocrites and pretenders at the expense of well-meaning candidates. More often, the electorates the well-oiled machinery of deception employed by politicians who lean on the corridors of power threatens the electorates. Consequently, the electors should struggle to ward off opportunistic candidates whose intentions manifest during the election period. React crisguardian@yahoo.com

Insulting El Nido, Palawan: it’s more fun LIFE’S INSPIRATIONS: “… But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin…” (1 John 1:7, the Holy Bible). -oooDIRT ROAD IN TOURIST PARADISE: Either the Aquino government is not really serious in its drive to promote tourism despite its much-trumpeted “It’s more fun in the Philippines” campaign, or, the world-famous El Nido resorts in the northern tip of Palawan, which brim with tourists, foreign and local, almost the whole year round, are not part of that tourism campaign, or of the over-all tourism plan of this country. I mean, how will you explain, Tourism Secretary Ramon Jimenez Jr., the fact that a big part of the national highway that connects El Nido to Taytay,

Kakampi mo ang batas Atty. Batas Mauricio Palawan, and then to Puerto Princesa City, consists of a mere dirt road? That dirt road, which measures about sixty kilometers in all, is supposed to be a cemented highway intended to make travel for tourists nice and easy, to lure them go to El Nido and the other beaches nearby which are equally breathtaking, more often. Why has that stretch of the national highway remained a dirt road, virtually impassable especially during the rainy season? The driver of the van that fetched me, my wife, and my daughter, Wednesday, May 01, 2013, from the Puerto

Princesa City Airport and who took us all the way to the Ayala-owned airport in El Nido, which is the gateway to its four world-class resort islands, told us, in real desperation, that the only time that part of the highway manages to see a pison, or any heavy equipment, is during election time, as a campaign prop. -oooINSULTING EL NIDO, PALAWAN: IT’S MORE FUN: Now, the point in El Nido is this: if the Aquino government, its Department of Tourism, its Department of Public Works and Highways, its provincial

government in Palawan, its local government units in Taytay and El Nido towns, and even the member of the House of Representatives from the place whose pork barrel is about P75 million yearly, could afford to insult a world famous resort like El Nido this way, is there hope for the other tourist spots in the country? Surely, there is no point in Secretary Jimenez and the DOT working hard to entice tourists to come to the Philippines to spend their precious dollars or any other foreign currencies here, if those tourists will only be made to suffer the inconveniences of a bad road, or, even worst, the unreliability of an outdated and outmoded transport service which will turn them into rabid Philippine-bashers later on. There is no point in the Aquino government insulting | page 11

3 communist rebels surrender to military PROSPERIDAD, Agusan del Sur––Three rebels belonging to Guerilla Front 88 of the North Central Mindanao Regional Committee of the New People’s Army voluntarily surrendered to Lt. Col. Jose Leonard Gille, commanding officer of the 26th Infantry Battalion, at Headquarters of the 26th IB, Barangay San Nicolas, Talacogon, Agusan del Sur at 10 a.m. yesterday. The surrender of these three rebels (names still being withheld for security reasons) was through the efforts of the soldiers and the mediation of concerned citizens who convinced the three to lay down their arms and return to the folds of the law. The rebels brought along with them the following firearms: one M14 rifle with two magazines, one submachinegun Ingram pistol with one magazine and one cal. 38 revolver. As of press time, the three are now undergoing custodial debriefing at 26IB’s headquarters. In a statement, the military said the rebels surrendered “because they got tired from running around and evading government troops every now and then.” “They are afraid that they would be killed in one of the encounters with government forces,” the military’s press statement said adding, “right now, they just would like to be reunited with their families and loved ones and live a peaceful life away from the life in the mountains they have been forced to deal with while they were with the NPAs.” On one hand, Gille said: “We, your soldiers, are very happy to welcome back our three brothers who were once with the NPAs but have decided to leave the armed struggle and go back to the mainstream society.” He added: “We know for sure that their families can sleep well tonight knowing that their sons, fathers and brothers are now safe and will soon be with them as they go back to the normal goings-on of their lives.” “For now, we are coordinating with other government agencies for assistance necessary for them to lead a peaceful and decent life,” said the military official. “For our other brothers and sisters who are still with the rebel organization and are also contemplating on going back to the folds of the law and support our true and only government, our negotiating efforts are still continuing. They may always reach and contact us any time,” said Gille. For his part, Col Gregory M. Cayetano, Commander of the 401st Infantry Brigade, “the surrender of these three former rebels is not only the triumph of the soldiers but this is a triumph of the whole Filipino people.” Cayetano said: “Over and over again, we have stressed that armed struggle and civil war is not the solution to our country’s problems, this is a lose-lose situation that leaves both parties farther apart and our kababayans in a more difficult situation.” “We can rehash the mistakes and pains of the past but we can all move forward and reconcile with one another. More are benefitted and nobody is left behind or hurt in the process,” added Cayetano.

creative talent of the Philippines with voice APIs. Our previous voice API was very difficult to deploy so we decided to look for other ways and found the solution with Voxeo Labs through their platform called Tropo which is very easy to use,” said Greg Igaya, head of Globe Strategic partnerships and innovation for Digital Media. Other demoed apps included a student/teacher scheduling system, real-time currency converter, and a customizable survey app running on Heroku. The functionality exposed by the voice API includes: » Make a Call : An application which dials a sip address or better yet an actual phone number. Calls to more than one number or sip address can also be made with just two lines of code. » Call Control : With the API, a call can be routed to another phone number or sip address, it can be rejected without even answering or even have other callers join in for a conference call. » Speech Recognition: Not just the tone touch input. The API gives the caller the capability to talk back to the application by simply telling the API what the expected words are as the valid answer. » Recording : Going beyond speech recognition, the API has the capability to transcribe the caller’s responses to text and have it saved to a database, or even record responses in part or whole as audio files.

NREB) cannot make any commercial solar PV project viable. No private sector project can be implemented with such a low level of FIT,” Mr. Tauli noted. Mr. Tauli said solar PV advocates will have to apply to the ERC for higher FIT (more than 15 pesos/kWh) that would make commercial projects viable. “But we cannot do that under the PNOY government, whose energy officials appear to be hostile to solar PV,” said Mr. Tauli. “For now, the only gridconnected solar PV projects that can get done are those that can obtain subsidies or

grants, which will have to come from foreign countries or international agencies because large amounts of grants are required.” Mr. Tauli recently attended the National Renewable Energy Program (NREP) Review and Workshop, held April 18-19, 2013, in Baguio City under the aegis of the National Renewable Energy Board to come up with revised projections of renewable energy projects for private sector investments under RA 9513. “I believe these are more realistic targets than whatever numbers the NREP Workshop came up with,” he said. “Theirs may be more realistic than my numbers, but also hopeless. I really believe the projections below for solar PV in Mindanao are attainable.” Mr. Tauli identified the following solar PV projects in Mindanao set for development from 2013-2023: • 40-MW s olar PV project of the Marawi City Government. Total project cost is estimated at PhP 5.25 billion. Private sector investment will be around PhP 3.22 billion, with the balance to be sourced from local LGU equity in the form of a grant from an Arabian government or donor agency in the amount of PhP 2.03 billion. The project will be operated conjunctively with one 40-MW unit of the Agus 1 hydro electric power plant to provide peaking capacity for consumers connected to the Mindanao Grid. The project is designed to be given the FIT of PhP 9.68 PhP/kWh approved by the

ERC. Target date of operation is 2016. • 10-MW embedded solar PV project in General Santos City of the Mindanao State University to be used primarily for applied research by MSU. The 10MW solar PV plant will be used primarily for applied research by MSU. It is estimated to cost 1.31 billion pesos, with private capital contributing 0.80 billion, and MSU contributing 0.51 billion pesos to be sourced from grants. The project is designed to be given the FIT of 9.68 PhP/kWh approved by the ERC. Target date of operation is 2016. • 100 MW embedded solar PV power plants in various electric cooperatives and private distribution utilities. This assumes that an increased FIT for solar PV, in the amount of 15.94 pesos per kilowatt-hour, will be approved in 2016, making it financially feasible for the private sector to invest in utility-scale solar PV projects. 100 MW will be installed in Mindanao to partially meet the lack of energy supply to distribution utilities. Target date of operation is 2017. • 450 MW embedded solar PV power plants in various electric cooperatives and private distribution utilities. It is assumed that grid-parity with diesel power plants will be attained in 2022 by solar PV. If so, solar PV power plants with a total capacity of 450 MW will be installed in Mindanao to replace around 200 MW of diesel power plants that are being operated in

that year as base-load power plants. When the NREB filed on May 2011 with the Energy Regulatory Commission the application for Feedin Tariff (FiT) rates for various technologies, the proposed FiTs in pesos per kilowatt-hour for the various technologies and the initial installation targets in megawatts were as follows: P10.37/kWh for Wind @ 250MW; P7.00/kWh for Biomass @ 250MW; P17.95/ kWh for Solar @ 100MW; P6.15/kWh for Mini Hydro @220MW; and P17.65/kWh for Ocean @10MW. “Those were realistic targets for each technology under the respective FiTs proposed because the FiTs would enable investors to earn a commercially viable rate of return for the power plants that would be constructed,” Mr. Tauli said. “However, the Energy Regulatory Commission subsequently reduced the recommended Feed In Tariff rate to only P9.68/kWh for solar PV power plants, rendering the installation target immaterial.” Instead, Mr. Tauli advocates Public-Private-Partnerships (PPP) since these would enable government agencies, especially local government units (LGUs), to access low cost ODA funds which would make the solar projects feasible. “For instance, for the 40-MW solar PV plant in Marawi that we are still pursuing, we will have to get a grant of around two billion pesos. We believe

Advocates claim solar PV Plants in Mindanao feasible despite low FiT

Solar energy power plants can contribute up to 600 megawatts of power in the Mindanao grid over the next six years after 2016. David A. Tauli, engineering consultant from the Office of Rep. Florencio T. Flores, Jr. (2nd District, Bukidnon) said this is attainable even if the National Renewable Energy Board only set 100MW as the initial installation target for solar PV plants all over the country under the Renewable Energy Law of 2008 (Republic Act No. 9513). “The FIT for solar PV approved by the ERC (9.68 pesos/kWh, compared with the 17.95 applied for by the EXTRAJUDICIAL SETTLEMENT OF THE ESTATE OF THE DECEASED ALEJANDRO B.

AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18) - Not everything is happening on the surface today -- in fact, most of the really cool stuff is going on beneath the level of awareness. Try to make sure that you’re taking things slow to soak it all in. PISCES (February 19 – March 20) - You need to find someone capable of leading your group (which could mean family, friends, work or something entirely different) in a new direction. It’s not easy, but you’ve got what it takes! ARIES (March 21 – April 19) - You’ve got some concerns about how other people see you -- and they may not be entirely without merit! Don’t get paranoid, though. You just need to tweak your public persona a bit. TAURUS (April 20 – May 20) - Your energy is terrific for moving out from your home base. This is likelier to involve travel than anything permanent, so make plans for a vacation or hit the road and see what you find. GEMINI (May 21 – June 21) - You’re not having an easy time of it today -- unless you’re on your own, that is! Try to make sure that you don’t have to rely on anyone understanding you perfectly. Clarify in a few days. CANCER (June 22 – July 22) - YYour heightened awareness is making life a lot more interesting for you and your people. See if you can get a better sense of what people are looking for, as your intuition is almost infallible. LEO (July 23 – August 22) - Try your best to show your bright side today -- it’s easier than you think! You may also find that you can get others to see the good in things, even if the mood around you is rather dark.

It’s an ambitious actionRPG with an excellent combat system, a great sense of adventure, and a suite of technical foibles that make it harder to love than it should be. Dark Arisen includes the full version of Dragon’s Dogma – with a few minor adjustments – as well as a good 10 to 15 hours of new adventuring on a mysterious black island that rises from the sea outside the fishing village of Cassardis.

VIRGO (August 23 – September 22) - It’s a great day for romantic adventures -- even if you’re stuck at work! That might actually be for the best, as you are twice as hot when you’re working (or working it). Flirt like mad! LIBRA (September 23 – October 22) - You are feeling a bit stressed out over a domestic situation, but try not to give it more power. You can’t ignore it, of course, but you also don’t have to add to the stress it’s causing you. SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21) - Today is all about work and business -- so even if you’re unemployed, you should be devoting a few mental cycles to advancing your commercial interests. You may hop on the big idea!

Rockets’ Harden expected for Game 5 despite illness

James harden OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Rockets AllStar James Harden is expected to play in Game 5 against the Thunder after leaving their shootaround because

of flu-like symptoms. Coach Kevin McHale says he’s sure Harden will be “ready to go” on Wednesday night. “We’re confident coming in here. Obviously, we need James and we want James to play for us to win at a high level,” teammate Chandler Parsons said. The Rockets face a 3-1 deficit in their first-round series against Oklahoma City, after winning Game 4 to avoid elimination. Harden was the NBA’s fifth-leading scorer during the regular season but has struggled against his former team, committing 10 turnovers while scoring 15 points in Game 4.

Crossing Tinayong, Batobato village, President Roxas town, Cotabato province. “Gidakop ang maong pulis aron ipailalom sa usa ka imbestigasyon alang sa unsang katuyoan sa pagsulod sa maong eryang ginalihokan sa BHB ug uban pang posibleng kaso ug krimen nga nabuhat batok sa masa ug katawhan,” said Isabel Santiago, spokesperson of the said NPA unit, in a statement. Ali was assigned in Arakan town. Santiago has scored the military, particularly the 57th Infantry Battalion, for launching massive operations in the hinterland of Pres. Roxas, Antipas, Arakan and Magpet towns, to supposedly rescue the police officer. “Sa maong lakang sa AFP, walay konsiderasyong ginahatag sa posibleng hulga sa seguridad sa maong bihag sa gubat,” Santiago warned. Five days after Ali’s arrest, a member of the 71st Infantry Battalion was taken as “prisoner of war” (POW) by the NPA’s ComVal-Davao Gulf Sub-Regional Command in Maco town, Compostela Valley province. Pfc. Jesus Tomas Jr., with Serial No. 879223, was arrested at 6AM in Elizalde village, April 24. The arrest of Tomas was part of the NPA’s enforcement of “revolutionary justice” for the killing of eightyear-old Roque Antivo last April 3 in Sitio Kidaraan, according to Daniel Ibarra, spokesman of the said NPA command. “Punitive actions” were launched by the NPA, Ibarra said, against the 71st IB and the Mabini Police Station after the military “denied culpability in its appalling attack versus Antivo and two other children” and after the police “planted false evidence at the crime scene to cover up the military’s atrocious act.” On April 23, at 7 AM, a team from the NPA Guerilla Front 2 aboard a motorcycle hit the Mabini Police Station with a grenade launcher. On April 24, the NPA also claimed of ambushing the 71st IB’s Charlie Company with commanddetonated explosive, “hitting a number of casualties.” Meanwhile, four days after the arrest of Tomas, the NPA’s Guerilla Front 2 arrested another police, an escort of Compostela Valley Governor Arturo Uy at a checkpoint in Sitio Malamudaw. Police Officer 2 Allan Mariquit Pansoy was arrested 3:30 PM, April 28. He was with Uy and a convoy of Board Members. The NPA warned it will continue to inflict blows against the AFP, PNP and paramilitary groups; detain POWs and “fortify people’s defense against the onslaught of the rabid Oplan Bayanihan.” It said that abusive police

and military men and officers are legitimate targets, and undesirable elements in the communities “are subject to the NPA and regulations of the People’s Democratic Government.” Santiago, on the other hand, assured they will respect the rights of the POW in accordance with international war laws and the Comprehensive Agreement on Respect for Human Rights and International Humanitarian Law. “Kanunay gipaneguro sa tibuok organisasyon sa Hukbo ang pagtamod sa disiplinang dili dagmalan ang mga bihag sa gubat, tagaan og igong atensyon ug pagtagad ug pagrespeto sa mga demokratikong katungod niini samtang anaa ilalom sa kustodiya,” Santiago said.

workers are expected to receive P258 a day. Apart from the wage hike, Villanueva said the company has decided to help ease the burden of the school children of the company workers by paying all the miscellaneous fees to at least 25 schools in the neighboring villages. He also said the scholarship program for indigenous people and indigent families will continue with a fresh batch that would be selected for this coming school year. Presently, there are 36 collegiate scholars of the company. During the celebration, several workers were cited with different awards for their excellence of their skills in the work places. The awardees received plaques and cash awards.

Rep. Maria Evelyn PlazaMellana. Binay himself expressed confidence of Plaza’s capability as maverick legislator in the halls of Congress during his three terms stint. “There are more than 200 congressmen but there are few of them who stood out,” citing the former lawmaker. “Let’s bring back the glory of Agusan del Sur,” the Vice President said citing the outstanding performance of Ompong adding that after he left , Agusan del Sur has never been heard again in the halls of Congress. “He is not a member of Committee on Silence. I am a living witness how he performs.” During his nine years in Congress, Ompong has authored a total of 387 bills, 10 of which were passed into law. Among his landmark legislations were RA 9163 which strengthened provisions of the National Service Law, RA 9405 which converted Bayugan into a component city of Agusan del Sur, RA 9508 which reapportioned Agusan del Sur into two congressional districts while RA 9647 or the PNU Act elevated the status of the Philippine Normal University to become

the national university for teacher education. Binay said he strong belief about Ompong’s capability to lead the Congress that Agusan del Sur residents would take pride of him when he became well-known in other parts of the country. “I know him personally. He is a good man, a good friend and a family man,” Binay said. Apart from an eye for the house speakership, talks have been also ripe that Ompong is also set to take the Agriculture department portfolio in 2016. Even Binay hinted about it in his speech citing the productive orchard farm developed by Ompong in Sta. Maria in Prosperidad town. “ He is not only a successful legislator but successful agriculturist and businessman as well.”

Poverty... from page 1

11.2 percent in 2002 while poverty incidence also correspondingly increased to 33.7 percent. The number of unemployed during subsequent years ranged between 10.5 percent (2012) and 11.4 percent (2003) during which time poverty incidence remained virtually unchanged including during the period 2006-2012. IBON added that even the so-called growth sectors or those sectors which posted the highest growth in the national domestic output have not generated substantial employment. The Aquino government has hyped the growth and the contribution to the economy of the BPO, real estate, construction and transport, storage and communication but jobs generation in these sectors did not match its growth in the gross domestic product (GDP). For instance, construction grew by 14.4 percent in 2011-2012 but its job generation only grew by 6.48 percent. The entire services sector grew by 5.1 percent but jobs generation only grew by 1.83 percent. IBON also noted the alarming youth unemployment in the country’s jobs situation. On average, there are 1.4 million youth or those belonging to the 15-24 age categories that do not have jobs in 2012. Youth unemployment rate was higher in January 2013 at 16.6 percent compared to the same period last year. Another notable trend in the jobs situation is the growing number of unemployment among educated workers. Official figures show that in 2012, almost eight out of 10 unemployed are highschool or college-educated. Three out of 10 reached college-level of education or are even graduates of post-graduate studies. The jobs scarcity in the country is pushing more and more Filipino workers to work in low-paying, inse-

cure and poor quality jobs. The research group urged the Aquino government to address the continuing trend of joblessness in the country by taking steps in building and strengthening local industries. According to IBON, good economic performance is only meaningful insofar as the jobs it creates. Jobs creation especially for a country reeling from decades of poverty is an important indicator of any government pushing for economic development.

harm but also leaves an emotional scar to students, thereby adversely affecting their studies, social personality and their lives. Councilors Adrian Barba, chair of the committee on education, Councilor Nadya Emano, chair of the committee on social services, Councilors Alexander Dacer, Alden Bacal, Emmanuel Abejuela and Roger Abaday are co-authors of the ordinance. The authors believe that there is a need to shape the conduct of students to instill discipline and essential values so as to integrate them to be productive, dynamic and industrious citizens of the city and to devise appropriate remedies to address bullying in order to protect the well-being of students and for the peace of mind of parents and guardians.

spending millions and millions of pesos nationwide and worldwide, on an advertising campaign promising “It’s more fun in the Philippines”, when it cannot even make sure that tourists who come here could at least enjoy a good travel on decently paved and regularly-maintained roads and highways. -oooFORSAKING EL NIDO: WHAT GIVES? Believe you me, this is beyond comprehension, even among those who support the Aquino presidency, for the records will show that for 2011, a whooping 515,148 tourists visited El Nido and its nearby resorts. Whipped in a frenzy by this outstanding number of arrivals two years ago, tourism officials predicted rather grandly that, for 2013, more than 600,000 tourists will come again. Now, if we assume that each of these tourists will conservatively spend just US$1,000 for their visit in 2013, that would mean at least US$600,000,000.00 (or about P2.4 billion) in new money coming into the country. Don’t we want that to happen? Don’t we want this money to come in? Surely, anyone who says, yes, we do not want that to happen must have not only his head examined but even his loyalty to our country. Surely we do, but, why is Secretary Jimenez, and all others it seems in the Aquino government, are not doing anything to improve the national highway between Puerto Princesa City and El Nido? What gives? Is El Nido in particular and Palawan in general not part of the “daang matuwid” team and so it is being forsaken? -oooREACTIONS?

ects (10 MW or smaller),” he said. “This is the only way to getting enough power plants implemented to meet the long-term requirements of Mindanao, while keeping the rates low (four pesos per kWh or less).” A US-based Filipino company providing renewable energy solutions shares Mr. Tauli’s optimism about solar energy for Mindanao. “The Department of Energy’s thumbing down solar energy as solution to the power crisis in the southern Philippines is not a hindrance or a barrier in the pursuit of a lasting and ultimately cheaper power sources in Mindanao,” said Engr. Winston Lorenzana Mendoza, chief executive officer of Mendoza Solar, LLC in a media statement. Mendoza Solar, LLC is an energy company registered in California and Nevada, USA. It provides renewable energy solutions for all types of property owners. Its Philippine subsidiary, Lim Solar Philippines, promotes portable fuel cell electric systems that address base energy needs, especially for off-grid remote areas. It currently has a solar integration and development projects with De La Salle University, Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority and Camp Aguinaldo, among others. Another company under the Mendoza Group, the Lorenzana Energy International has solar integration and development projects in Malaysia, Hawaii, Guam, California and Nevada. “Solar energy as well as other renewable energy sources are very appropriate for Mindanao if we look at the long term and the impact of climate change, which exacerbates natural phenomenon such as typhoons and storms,” Mr. Mendoza said. For the last several years, Mindanao is now the favorite of natural disasters, whose impacts were exacerbated by climate changeinducing fossil fuels. We can no longer afford to let Mindanao suffer. Solar energy is abundant in the island and it provides clean energy, he noted. Mendoza said Lim solar can offer electric cooperatives in Mindanao very minimal prices for solar power as well as 100 percent financing for residences and small businesses. “For Mindanao, I will offer P7.47 per KWh to the electric coop and large megawatt level users and P8.50 to small users. I will also straight finance the residential and small businesses,” he said.
