Indigent cancer patients to get P1 billion support L

as Piñas Rep. Mark A. Villar filed House Bill No. 3200 “to assist indigent cancer patients and their families, establishing for the purpose a cancer assistance fund and for other purposes.” Cancer is the third leading cause of death in the Philippines, which afflicts 189 per 100,000 Filipinos and kills four Filipinos every hour. Latest information from the Department of Health (DoH) shows that there are 85,000 new cases of cancer annually in both

males and females, and the number is expected to double within the next decade. “As the number of Cancer cases and related deaths rise in the country, an increasing number of Filipinos cannot afford the high cost of medicines and treatments.

The cost of treatment is burdensome even to middleincome patients and often beyond the reach of the poor,” said Villar. Villar’s bill, once enacted into law, will implement a system of providing premium care and assistance See support/p.7

Mindanao lawyers’ group condemns lawsuit filed against two city councilors By Roel N. Catoto of MindaNews

SURIGAO City––The Union of People’s Lawyers in Mindanao (UPLM) has condemned the slapping of an illegal assembly case against two city councilors here and three others in relation to their participation of the anti-pork barrel rally held last September 21. The city councilors charged for violating a city ordinance that designates where rallies are to be held are Atty. Jose V. Begil Jr. and

Engr. Baltazar C. Abian. The others charged are Fernando A. Almeda Jr., founder and president of Surigaonon Heritage Center and chairperson of Coalition of Surigaonons for Good Governance-Transparency and Accountability; Edgar Canda, chairperson of Bayan Muna-Surigao del Norte Chapter; and Rotchel Escuatro, officer of Karapatan Surigao del Norte. Begil is currently the UPLM’s vice chair for external affairs. The five, together with

leaders and members of progressive organizations, were among those who staged a protest rally across the public market at the intersection of Borromeo and Sarvida streets to mark the 41st anniversary of Martial Law. The protesters also signed a petition asking the Ombudsman to act on the complaint for plunder against Surigao del Norte Rep. Francisco Matugas, and graft cases against Surigao del Norte Governor Sol F. Matugas and Surigao City Mayor Ernesto T. Matugas.

The city ordinance is based on Batas Pambansa 880, passed by the Batasan Pambansa during Martial Law under ousted President Ferdinand Marcos that requires rallyists to first obtain a permit for their activity. UPLM chairperson Emeliano R. Deleverio said the law is an archaic, unconstitutional, and antidemocratic law that was imposed by the Marcos dictatorship and was never repealed by the first Aquino administration until today.

Information fatigue By Mong Palatino of bulatlat.com

If journalism is history in a hurry, can we describe social media as the hurrying of history? Because of mobile Internet, events are “instantiated” in our timelines and webpages. We constantly access the Internet not simply to read the mirror images of this morning’s newspapers or videos of last night’s news reports but to monitor the news as it happens. Watch livestream events, participate in crowdsourced reporting, information is delivered in realtime. The immediate and obvious consequence of this phenomenon is information overload. When big data are reduced into 140 characters and creative graphics, they are easily exchanged in the cyberspace which allows everyone to consume and create information at the same time. We become both victims and aggressors in the digital warfare; specialists and spectators in the information superhighway. The problem is different and even worse than excessive TV viewing because the latter can be easily solved by switching off the machine. But a smartphone is not only loaded with numerous must-have apps, its basic features – SMS and call – are considered as among the essentials of 21st century living. The power-off button is actually seldom used today. In other words, “the data will always get through” even if our gadgets are on silent mode. But few are complaining of information fatigue. In fact, the trend is in the direction of promoting greater online presence. Is visual stress a non-issue among the digital natives? Or perhaps many are See fatigue/p.7

Over 500 Tawi-Tawi candidates sign peace covenant BONGAO, Tawi-Tawi–– Intense political rivalries were set aside momentarily when over 500 candidates in Monday’s elections, most of them blood-related, signed a peace covenant in TawiTawi. Election officer Abu Talipan said at least three in every four candidates present at the event last Monday are blood-related. Two brothers from Barangay Pahut, for example, are running against each other as village captain. In a show of support for the covenant, they exchanged hugs after the signing, drawing cheers from the crowd. The covenant signing, organized by the Commis-

sion on Elections (Comelec) and local units, took place at the Beachside Inn Hotel and Restaurant in Bongao, the capital. During the peace dialogue, members of the religious sector, the Parish Pastoral Council for Responsible Voting, the police and the military lent support to the Comelec for a peaceful conduct of the October 28 elections. The candidates staged a four-kilometer unity walk with their supporters after the covenant signing. Barangay elections in Mindanao are known to be very intense, as families seek to defend their territories by holding on to

DOJ violating senators’ rights LIFE’S INSPIRATIONS: “… The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding…” (Proverbs 9:10, the Holy Bible). -oooSTROK E S A MONG THE YOUTH RISING: There is a scary warning from Paris, France, about more and more younger people becoming victims of strokes, allegedly because of unhealthy lifestyles. The warning, published by The Lancet Medical Journal, says that “there is 25 percent increase in the number of strokes among those aged between 20 and 64 over the past 20 years, now making up 31 percent of the total compared to 25 percent before 1990.” Could this be a fulfillment of the warning that as more and more people stray away from God, no longer listening to His Word and no longer obeying His commands, they will be afflicted with “wasting diseases, with fever and inflammation” until they perish? If so, there is only one way for the youth to fight this off--by going back to God by listening to His Word and

obeying His commands. -oooMVP GROUP A BIG HELP FOR CALAMITY VICTIMS: Laudable, admirable, impressive.

Many of those afflicted are praying that not only Pangilinan’s companies would be doing this kind of service, but others as well. Indeed, there is a reason why success and wealth are bestowed by God. It is to enable those who are greatly favored to help those who are in need, so that more and more people will find the opportunity to thank God.

Learn lessons from agri liberalization, government urged IN his official statement at the 23rd ASEAN Summit in Brunei Darrussalam, President Benigno Simeon Aquino III threw his support to achieving “greater economic integration by 2015”. Research group IBON however warned against any further push towards the elimination of trade barriers and urged government to review its engagement in free trade particularly because of its negative effects on Philippine agriculture. “Liberalization of agriculture has caused this vital economic sector to decline with serious effects on farmers’ livelihood and the country’s food security,” IBON executive director Sonny Africa said. The agriculture, fishery and forestry sector has fallen from 22.6% of gross domestic product (GDP) in the period 1990-94 to 16.8% in 2010. The national government meanwhile allots just 5.9% of its budget to agriculture which is however bloated

by also including landlord compensation under agrarian reform. Actual support to farms is likely less than 3% of the national budget which is not even necessarily all to small farmers. According to Africa, Philippine agricultural tariffs are now among the lowest in Southeast Asia at a simple average of 8.7% for agricultural products. This is even far below the final bound rates under the World Trade Organization (WTO) where commitments are at 37.0% for agricultural products. “Tariff elimination, poor government support especially for small farmers and rural producers, the promotion of land grabbing and crop or land-use conversions have caused job losses in the countryside and falling rural incomes,” continued Africa. The government rationalized that entry into the WTO in 1994 would generate millions of new

agricultural jobs especially from expanded farm exports. However agricultural employment rose by only 808,000 in the past 18 years from 11.3 million in 1994 to 12.1 million in 2012. Five predominantly rural regions in the country meanwhile saw agricultural employment fall by 693,000 job consisting of Davao, Bicol, Caraga, Eastern Visayas and Northern Mindanao. Nominal wages of farm workers reportedly increased from Php92 per day in 1995 to Php207 in 2011. However real wages, or taking the rising prices of goods and services into consideration, actually fell from Php126 daily in 1995 to Php122 in 2011 (measured in constant 2000 pesos). Poverty incidence among farmers and fisherfolk is far above the national average. “Government should be alarmed at the rate food insecurity is rising,” Africa added. Philippine agricultural trade deficit grew

by 1,050% from US$287 million in 1994 to US$3.3 billion in 2010, the biggest deficits being in cereals, dairy products, meat, spices, coffee, tea and cocoa. The food trade deficit meanwhile ballooned by 2,000% from $181 million to $3.8 billion during the same period. For example, the country’s pre-WTO 0% importation of garlic and onions are now at 65% and 8%, respectively. Philippine rice importation also increased to 19% of domestic consumption in 2010 from 4% in 1995, which threatens to become even worse upon the pending lifting of quantitative restrictions on rice. Domestic production is increasingly lagging behind demand because agricultural productivity is held back by the absence of agrarian reform, poor state support for small farmers, low mechanization, and undue competition from cheap imports,” said Africa.

Two little words Think a minute. A husband and wife had not spoken to each other for days. They were still angry at one another since their last fight. By the 5th day, the husband realized he had a problem. He needed his wife to wake him up early the next day to catch a plane for an important business trip. But not wanting to talk to her and lose the fight, he put a note on the kitchen table. It read: “Please wake me up at 5AM tomorrow morning.” The next morning when the husband woke up, it was 7 o’clock! He was so angry that he had missed his plane, he was just about to yell at his wife for not waking him when he found a note next to his bed. It read: “Wake up! It’s 5 o’clock!”

Think A Minute Jhan Tiafau Hurst Why do we find it so hard to say those 2 little words, “I’m sorry”? If we’re honest, most of us are better at remembering the people who should tell us they’re sorry than we are at paying our own “sorry” debt. Yet if we would just apologize sooner we could save our friendships, family relationships, as well as a lot of time, energy, even money. A British study showed that 37% of people who had

sued doctors or hospitals in court would not have done it if their doctor had simply apologized to them. You know, when it comes to taking the blame for something, most people fall into 1 of these two groups. The first group almost never thinks that they caused any of the problem. It’s always someone else’s fault and they should apologize to you. The second group often blame themselves for caus-

ing the problem and they apologize quickly. But both extremes of always being a blame taker or a blame shifter are not healthy. The key in each situation is to be honest. Then admit that since it took both of you to cause the problem of offense or misunderstanding, it will probably take both of you to get out of it. Jesus Christ promises that if we’ll give Him total control of our heart and attitude, He will help us to start seeing and understanding ourselves honestly and responsibly, so we’ll know when and how to apologize in each situation. He’ll help you to forgive those people who wronged you, so you’ll finally be free from the heavy burden of blame. Just Think a Minute.

Boastfulness

Fresh Gospel of the day: Luke18:9-14(October27, 2013-Sunday) Luke 18:9-14-And he spake this parable unto certain which trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and despised others: Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican. The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men [are], extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican. I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess. And the publican, standing afar off,

In his speech to inaugurate his “first 100 days” as Mayor of Cagayan de Oro City, Mayor Oscar Moreno mentioned that one of the first things he and his “hapsay team” did was to “preview the problems” as well as to look into the “vast development potentials” of the City. The Mayor also repronounced his priorities to make Cagayan de Oro a better City, namely: 1) Good governance & team work, 2) Equitable and inclusive development, 3) Poverty alleviation, 4) Peace and order, 5) Revenue generation and resettlement, 6) Investments and infrastructure development, 7) Human capital (skilled work force), 8) Hospital and health care services, 9) Agricultural productivity, 10) Environment, 11: Education, 12) Traffic management, and 13) “Metropolitanization”. I must say he (and his team) started on the “right step” with the “right foot” (so to speak). This augurs well for the city, the citizenry and many others who are closely watching, following and monitoring their moves with high expectations. Let me open and offer a few thoughts and observations. It was not able and praiseworthy for the Mayor and his team to waste no time to start cleaning up the public places (markets and sidewalks), bringing order and cleanliness to a once messy, disorderly, dirty environment that Cagayan de Oro was getting known for. He ordered the abolition of the “Nite Café” at Divisoria bringing “hapsay” and cleanliness to that place, previously causing traffic congestion, stinky, dirty, noisy situations during week-ends right in the center of Cagayan de Oro for the past years. He started to beautify City Hall and its environs. If we see more of these actions (and sustain them) by the “hapsay team”, we will expect Cagayan de Oro to be cleaner, indeed

more “hapsay” (orderly) and hopefully a more disciplined citizenry – all ingredients to proper urbanization of a city fast becoming a metropolis. In a kitchen or restaurant, there are foods that one can prepare in “no time” (“fast foods”). Other foods will need more time to concoct, prepare and deliver. A good kitchen and restaurant has to plan well, well ahead of time, to prepare and deliver the variety of “foods” customers want. City Development is somewhat akin to this. Mayor Moreno and his team have already shown they can give us some good palatable “fast foods” from the City “kitchen”. They should continue to deliver the “fast foods” because the City and its citizenry need, expect and like these goods. The “hapsay team” can determine what these goods are from their list of priorities. “Fast-foods” have their functions and they are good. However, there are restaurants that are distinguished, not only for their good “fast foods”, but for their “class” and substance. Similarly, some cities have “class” and substance. They are distinguished -- inviting, attractive, prosperous, peacefully livable for EVERYONE, PEOPLE OF ALL WALKS OF LIFE, to raise their families in, today and to the far distant future. If our vision of Cagayan de Oro is to be that kind of a city, then the more challenging planning to prepare and make our city a Distinguished City of “class” and substance, must be take place. The “class” and substantial positive change that CDO needs to plan for, in the long term, is a change of its pyramidal socialeconomic structure (a very broad bottom of majority poor people, narrowing towards the middle consisting of middle income families, and a pointed top made up of a few wealthy families, sketch 1), a conspicuous indication of inequality.

Some thoughts on Moreno’s leadership and where he should lead Cagayan de Oro By Anselmo B.Mercado

A pyramidal-structured society is vulnerable to many social unrest and maladies, a society with no social conscience, a social volcano. Many progressive and prosperous countries have a trapezoidal socioeconomic structure (with less inequality, many of the poor people moving up to the middle part, sketch 2), thus narrowing the gap between the “haves” and “have-nots”, a more healthy society. CDO should be changing towards becoming a trapezoidal-structured society. This to me, is the substantial change that must be planned for by Mayor Moreno and his team, a very challenging one, a long term one, the results of which may not be seen within their electoral term. The list of priorities they have formulated during their electoral campaign carries the elements for the needed change: poverty alleviation, equitable and balanced development, attracting investments to establish job-creating industries, agricultural productivity, and along with all these the education and training to develop the human capital (skilled work force) for the various enterprises and industries. The basic infrastructure must be developed (good basic utilities for water and electricity, good roads to transport goods of our rural producers, etc.). Peace and order in our society is a must, because as one leader has put it, “No peace, no development. No development, no peace.” What makes sense in development planning is a comprehensive balanced development strategy (for example, narrowing the urban and rural differentials, more emphasis on helping the poor, the rural poor, so they will find the rural areas more attractive for living and livelihood, and therefore less influx of people to the city that can create slums). Let me give an example of a rural village somewhere near

Alae (border of Misamis Oriental and Bukidnon) on the way to Del Monte. There, a biscuit company has been established, an industry that has provided employment to hundreds of people, bringing some prosperity to the area. This is a good example of decongesting the city and dispersing development to the country side. Rural Cagayan de Oro can learn from this example. HOUSEHOLD INCOME is the crucial element – an INCREASE OF IT, by making people more productive (by selfemployment and/or jobs near where they are residing without moving into an already crowded city). Thus, they create some wealth for themselves and society as a whole. Rural families, especially the farming families, must become productive to produce food for the city, making them more competitive with producers in other provinces, to make the city more food-secure. The previous administration, in a sense, had a good understanding of what the people, especially the poor needed and wanted – an opportunity to earn a living. For that, they opened the sidewalks, road sides, other public places near the schools and business centers, etc. for vendors to do their livelihood activities – but all that at the expense of the City’s well being, traffic problems, pollution problems, stinky, dirty, unsanitary environment, a messy disorderly city. Some say, and perhaps rightly so, it was a clever strategy or a game of “politics” to appease the poor to get their votes. The current administration of Mayor Moreno must not get into that pitfall, the “game of politics”. Genuine planning to genuinely develop the City of Cagayan de Oro for the good of its citizenry, for this and future generations, with special concern and care for the disadvantaged, is the real name of the game.

According to Africa, government should acknowledge the decline in agriculture due to its decades-long engagement in free trade and rethink its policies. He said that for agriculture to become the base of economic development, the state’s economic program including its foreign trade policy should include protecting and supporting small farmers to develop local agricultural production, increase rural employment, and achieve food self-sufficiency.

“Local Marcos wannabees like Mayor Ernesto Matugas and other local government executives are invoking this Draconian law to guard their own fiefdoms and lash back at his political adversaries,” Deleverio said in the UPLM’s press statement sent to MindaNews. The group said Surigao City Mayor Ernesto Matugas did not issue a permit to use the public park for which protesters earlier applied. “The illegal assembly case against Begil, Abian, Canda and two other companions is the most recent in a looming trend of harassment against human rights lawyers and vocal critics to ‘Pork King’ Benigno Aquino III and the whole corrupt system of bureaucrat capitalism,” Daleverio said. UPLM calls for the immediate withdrawal of all charges against Begil and his co-accused. UPLM also demands that the authorities respect the rights and duties of human rights lawyers to represent and defend the people’s organizations that they are serving. When sought for comment, the mayor was quick to respond that he is not behind the filing of the case against the protesters. “I never instructed the chief of police to file a case against the rallyists,” he said in a text message Wednesday afternoon. Matugas said it was the chief of police who filed the case. But Supt. Joseph R. Nohara, the city police chief, did not comment on the issue. Begil said the case is still pending at the Surigao City Prosecutor’s Office. He added they are waiting for the subpoena to be sent by the prosecutor’s office. City Ordinance Number 245, passed in 2006, designates the Luneta Park and City Boulevard as “Freedom Parks where people may congregate, peaceably assemble and petition the government for redress of grievances.” It was based on Batas Pambansa 880 or the Public Assembly Act of 1985. The ordinance carries no penal clause though. “Since the ordinance has no penalty, they can’t be held liable,” Vice Mayor

Danilo C. Menor, a lawyer himself, said. He was a former fiscal in this city, then became councilor. He was the brainchild of the city ordinance in question. “The Aquino government should cease from filing lawsuits against the public’s participation in legitimate issues. The state should junk BP 880 and all repressive laws, and respect the constitutional rights of the people to peaceably assemble and seek redress for their grievances. Most importantly, President Benigno Aquino III should abolish the pork barrel system instead of trying to jail the people and their defenders,” Deleverio said.

Every year, the State shall automatically appropriate the amount of P1 billion to support the cancer medicine and treatment assistance program to be administered by the Philippine Health Insurance Corporation (PhilHealth). The program shall prioritize indigent and underprivileged cancer patient beneficiaries to be identified by the PhilHealth in coordination with the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) and the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG). source: congress.gov.ph

still hypnotized by the allure of virtual communities. Maybe we are too engrossed, fascinated, and distracted by the neverending flow of data to notice how our seemingly mundane Internet activities are deeply affecting our senses. For example, are we really reading something when we go online or are we just simply absorbing the visuals that appear and fade in the multiple tabs of our browsers? The good news is that Internet overexposure is partly addressed by netizen campaigns that seek to enhance and protect our online experience. Through these initiatives, there is still hope to make the Internet a better and safer place for everybody, especially the children. But responsible Internet usage is not enough. The other essential task is to make the Internet more truly social. We should begin by acknowledging that the Internet, despite its democratic functions, also reinforces individualism and apathy in society. By bombarding us with too much (trivial) information, the Internet lulls us into inaction. For many people, the ability to consume and exchange information is equated with action. Experience is understood as the accumulation, storing, and spreading of information. We feel empowered just because we can freely

access and manipulate information. Perhaps unconsciously, we use information to “anaesthetize the injuries of class, race, and sex” (Susan Sontag). As our social worlds deteriorate, we find solace in the information frenzy of our social networks. The political goal is suddenly redirected to maintain open interactions in the cyberspace in order not to impede the intake and flow of information. The unintended effect is the narrowing of our concept of political engagement. The Internet has ceaselessly provided us with useful tools that revolutionized communication and information sharing in the world. Information is suddenly made available for everybody. Everything can be fact-checked now in an instant. Solutions are already downloadable. But this is also the same reason why action seems inadequate and less forceful in the real world. Reversing the formulation made by media guru Marshall McLuhan when he described the legacy of typography in Western society, what we have today is a proliferation of tools that give us the power to react without acting. By leading us to think that political action is the same with information access, the Internet has become a glorified platform for noninvolvement and detachment. Information swapping becomes the preferred form of political intervention. Information overload is an appropriate term. It reminds us that what gets exchanged at dizzying speed in the cyberspace are simply information, which are mostly spam anyway. There is no such thing as truth overload or truth fatigue. Fact-checking through Google is different from the ‘truth procedure.’ Therefore, truth-seeking should be the norm in our everyday Internet activities. This approach would hopefully prevent us from getting distracted by the noise and clutter that pervade the Internet world. Restore politics in information, fight for truth and only truth in the Internet. (http://bulatlat.com) •• Mong Palatino is a Filipino activist and former legislator. Email: mongpalatino@gmail.com

Rights... from page 4

Senate Minority Leader Juan Ponce Enrile and Senators Jinggoy Estrada and Bong Revilla already constitutes a violation of the senators’ Constitutional right to be presumed innocent until proven guilty, as well as their right to travel. It is as if De Lima is saying that, at this point that the charges linking Enrile, Estrada and Revilla to the P10 billion pork barrel scam are still being investigated by the Ombudsman, they could

already be penalized and their Constitutional rights set side by the cancellation of their passports. This is a dangerous precedent, and could open the floodgates of more violation of the Constitutional rights of other people. I mean, if the Constitutional rights of our senators could be waylaid just like that, it is going to be a lot easier waylaying the rights of ordinary Filipinos. This, too, is scary. -oooBATTLE FOR “TOCINO” MARKET ON: Did you notice the fierce on-going battle for the control of the local “tocino” (sweetened pork) market? One food manufacturer started it all by coming out with an advertisement which asked, “Ikaw, saan gawa ang tocino mo?” (“You, where is your tocino, or sweetened pork, made?”). The evident intent was to suggest that there is a problem in the way the sweetened pork product of a competitor is being processed or manufactured. Feeling alluded to, the competitor launched its own advertisement which countered, “Hindi to’ cino-cino lang” (meaning, “This is not just anybody”). Obviously, what the competitor wanted to say, in retort, was that its sweetened pork product is being processed not just by any ordinary processor or manufacturer, but by one that has been the conceded long-time leader in food processing and manufacturing in the country. Who will win in this fight? Let’s wait and see. -oooREACTIONS? Please call me at 0917 984 24 68, 0918 574 0193, 0922 833 43 96. Email: batasmauricio@yahoo.com, mmauriciojr111@ gmail.com
