PHL’s largest bakeshop chain opens 5th branch in Iloilo City ILOILO City--Julie’s Bakeshop continues to strengthen its presence in Western Visayas as it opened its fifth branch in Mandurriao district in Iloilo City recently. The City of Love, being the regional center of Western Visayas, is the ideal location for the country’s largest bakeshop chain, said Bienvenido Topacio, the company’s national franchise business development manager. “We have a mission to feed people. We would like to realize this by bringing Julie’s Bakeshop closer to our customers and to more communities all over the country,” Topacio said in a statement. Other branches of Julies Bakeshop in the metro can be found along E. Lopez St. and Lopez Jaena St. in Jaro district, Ledesma St. in city proper and Sta.

bara, Iloilo. Julie’s Bakeshop is considered the country’s strongest bakeshop brand with over three decades of experience in bakeshop industry. Julia Gandionco founded the business in 1981 in Cebu City in response to the ever-increasing need for bread in her canteen operations then. Gandionco built the business based on the concept that fresh hot bread would be baked in full view of the customers and must be served with courteous greetings and warm smiles. Julies Bakeshop’s first branch outside Cebu debuted in Iloilo City in 1988 and marked the start of its expansion. Now, the Julies Bakeshop has over 500 branches operated by 130 franchisees from Luzon to Mindanao.(PNA)

Updating of nat’l biodiversity strategy, action plan taken up in Baguio forum consolidated by the technical working group during the national consultation in Manila on November 20-21. Before the NBSAP national consultation, the PAWB set similar interregional consultations in the other parts of the country such as Southern Luzon Consultation for Regions 4A,4B, 5 and NCR on July 24–26; Bohol in Visayas on August 21–23; Cagayan De Oro in Mindanao for Regions 9, 10 and ARMM on September 18-30; and

Davao City in Mindanao for Regions 11, 12 and CARAGA on October 23–25. The NBSAP, which was formulated in 1997, is a refinement of the 1994 Philippine Strategy for Biodiversity Conservation. NBSAP is one of the identified strategies to achieve the objective of the Philippine Development Plan of President Benigno Aquino III concerning environmental protection. However, Protected Areas, Wildlife and Coastal

Zone Management Services Cordillera Regional Technical Director Reynald Yawan stressed that despite the NBSAP reaching “maturity”, the efforts and initiatives done for the biodiversity conservation were inadequate. “This developed due to the problems on funds, the need for enabling policies, the lack of attention or priority, and lack of advocacy and awareness among the people,” Yawan noted. (PNA)

LAOAG City--The launching of the series of consultations in line with the move to update the National Biodiversity Strategy and Action Plan (NBSAP) culminated at Hotel Supreme in Baguio City last Saturday. Armida Andres, head of the planning division of the Protected Areas and Wildlife Bureau (PAWB) of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), said stakeholders from North Luzon composed of Regions 1, 2, 3 and

Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR) participated in the seminar-workshop from June 27 to 29, 2013 to take part in the discussion of NBSAP. “After the series of interregional consultations for updating the NBSAP, we will make a comprehensive and participatory action plans to neutralize the identified drivers of the biodiversity loss in the country to further protect our biodiversity for the sake of our future generatons,” Andres explained.

“Our biodiversity, which is referred to as the range of organisms in our environment, has three levels such as the genetic, the species of all plants, fish and animals, and the ecosystems to include marine resources, inland resources and wetlands,” she added. She disclosed that the NBSAP was formulated to primarily protect the country’s biodiversity. She said that all inputs during the three–day NBSAP consultation will be

MANILA -- Most parts of the country will have fair weather except for Mindanao due intertropical convergence zone (ITCZ) that will continue to induce rains, according to Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) on Tuesday. PAGASA said an ITCZ is a merger of winds from different directions, which is also a breeding ground for low pressure areas (LPA). In its advisory, PAGASA said that the regions of Caraga, Davao and Soccsksargen will experience cloudy skies with light to moderate rainshowers and thunderstorms. It added that the rest of the country, including

Metro Manila, will be sunny with partly cloudy to at times cloudy with isolated rainshowers mostly in the afternoon or evening due to localized thunderstorms. PAGASA added that moderate to strong winds blowing from the southeast will prevail over Northern Luzon and its coastal waters will be moderate to rough. Elsewhere, winds will be light to moderate coming from the east to northeast with slight to moderate seas. PAGASA also issued a final gale warning due weakened southwest monsoon as a result fishing boats and other small sea crafts are alerted against moderate to rough waves. (PNA)

thorities reported that they are still encountering difficulty in securing public cooperation on disaster risk reduction (DRR) and climate change efforts. Such difficulty includes informal settlers’ resistance to being relocated from danger areas they are occupying at present, authorities noted. Among the danger areas are banks of polluted waterways where water flow is constricted and water-carrying capacity is already reduced, making these more susceptible to overflows which flood surrounding informal and formal settlements.

Latest available global warming data also highlight need for public cooperation on DRR and climate change as experts warned against a possible 4°C rise in Earth’s temperature by 2060, up from the 2°C they projected earlier. They expect higher global warming to worsen repercussions of climate change. For the Philippines, such repercussions are increasing onslaught of weather extremes as well as rise in sea level and temperature. Climate Change Commission Vice-Commissioner Mary Ann Lucille Sering echoed Dr.

Public cooperation among keys to successful DRR: expert

MANILA -- An expert is urging people to help government protect themselves from harm by heeding disaster warnings that authorities issue instead of ignoring these. “The warnings will be useless if people refuse to listen and to prepare for disasters,” said Dr. Alfredo Mahar Lagmay, executive director of Project Nationwide Operational Assessment of Hazards (NOAH) under the Department of Science and Technology. He raised the point as au-

Lagmay’s call for the public to be pro-active, noting people’s cooperation is key to DRR and climate change efforts. “Government can’t do it all alone,” she said. Dr. Lagmay noted government continues improving its DRR and climate change measures to better protect life, limb and property nationwide. He earlier said government plans to have the entire country covered by doppler radars to help enhance its nowcasting, which is prediction of weather for the short-term. “The plan will increasingly help us predict rainfall that’s

likely to happen in the next few hours,” he said. Authorities warned such non-cooperation on achieving zero casualty during disasters also makes rescue efforts more difficult, dangerous and costly. To help address informal settlers’ resistance to being relocated, National Housing Authority (NHA) continues improving its resettlement sites by providing schools and other community facilities there aside from their dwelling units. Informal settlers can also opt for NHA’s in-city housing units, the agency’s Gen.

Manager Chito Cruz said. “We’re likewise continuing our social preparation activities to help get them ready for relocation,” he continued. Launched in 2012, Project NOAH’s mission is to conduct disaster science research and development to help boost government’s disaster prevention and mitigation efforts. Project NOAH also promotes using cutting-edge technologies and recommends innovative information services for the same purpose. “We aim providing realtime information particularly to LGUs,” Dr. Lagmay said.

The mark of good leaders A GROUP of student editors and staff writers of the school organ of one of the universities in Manila asked me during a group discussion with them what the mark of a good leader is. Since they were students and very much involved into campus journalism work, I walked them through concepts of leadership and how these apply to their work as campus journalists. But I impressed upon them from the very start of my answer that leadership under whatever paradigm has one common denominator. That common denominator is the uplift of the people’s condition and, in their case, the uplift of the cognitive ability of the studentry to have a deeper grasp of the issues confronting them as students and as citizens of this country. In the real world, however, the uplift of the people’s condition, I told them, means the transformation of their miserable economic

A deeper view Jesse E.L. Bacon II condition to a level where they themselves could say that they are already living full and abundant lives. The task of effecting this transformation falls on the lap of elective officials who, first and foremost, are politicians. We all know that politicians in this country are viewed by the citizenry with so much contempt. This attitude toward politicians is the result of years of abuse, years of corrupt and bankrupt leadership, and years of neglect by the politicians themselves of their avowed profession to serve the people when they

were seeking their mandate. The irony of it all is the notion harbored by most elective officials that once in office they become masters instead of servants mandated to work for the betterment of the sorry situation of a good number of their constituencies. I don’t know what is in our country’s electoral process that makes every elective politician metamorphose into an ogre when they are in office. I am as puzzled as you are with this phenomenon. Like you, I have also witnessed several good men who sought the people’s

Complain or change

THINK a minute. Imagine you had not eaten anything all day. So that night you decide to go out to a nice restaurant and buy the biggest, tastiest steak in the house. Finally, the waiter brings your meal and you can’t believe your eyes. On your plate is just a tiny piece of meat, enough for only two bites! You complain to the waiter about how tiny your steak is, but he says: “Sir, that little piece of steak is from the finest cow money can buy. You’ll never find a better bite of meat anywhere.” Would you be satisfied? Of course not! Why? Because both quality and

quantity are important in life. This is especially true with how much time we give to our children. Many of us parents spend such little time actually talking and listening to our kids. And we defend ourselves by saying: “Well, I have good quality time with them. I make my short times with my kids count. I even buy them nice things.” But our kids are starving for more time with us! They need more than just a small bite of our time and a few leftovers after we’ve made time for our own fun and friends first. Or maybe we stay at work late, night after night, for more money. Yet we still don’t un-

derstand why our kids are rebelling against us, or why they’re having problems at school. It’s simply because we, their parents, are not giving them enough of our time, attention, and real love. You and I usually make time for things that are important to us. Your kids would much rather have you than a bigger house and more toys. Dad and Mom, your kids need both of you now while they’re growing up. It’s now that they need you to talk with them, to listen and really understand what they’re feeling and going through, and just to be their friend and enjoy fun times together.

mandate in an election and became bad when in office already. Even the wealthy ones who had themselves elected into public office were totally gobbled up by the germ called corruption. It is because of corruption that the delivery of public services has been greatly jeopardized. Just think of the millions of pesos that are being allocated as congressional funds to our honorable congressmen. If these funds were really spent to spur development or for the delivery of public services such as education, think of the benefits it would have brought to say Mindanao. One of our local churches here in Manila built a guest house that I would describe as a notch higher than modest to the tune of P1.3 million only. The guest house has three bedrooms, a spacious sala and kitchen. Using the above cost as the ballpark figure in leaders | page 8

Think A Minute

Jhan Tiafau Hurst So if you realize you’re not giving your best time to your children, both in quality and quantity, then today you can ask Jesus to forgive you. Then, with His real love and power you can change to start becoming the new and better parent your children need. Just Think a Minute.

Globe Telecom files charges vs 13 wimax fraudsters Globe Telecom has filed charges against 13 individuals involved in the illegal sale and installation of hacked Globe WIMAX modems and Tattoo sticks since the start of the year. Twelve of these individuals have already been charged with cases for violation of Republic Act 8484 or the Access Devices Regulations Act while one of the suspects was charged with theft. In most of the cases, the modus operandi has been to pull-out the WIMAX modem from legitimate subscribers on pretext of an upgrade. The modems are then reconfigured and sold at a one-time cost payment. “We want to warn the public that Globe, in close coordination with the police, will continue to be relentless in pursuing its campaign against illegal sale and hacking of our WIMAX modems. This is a clear violation of Republic Act 8484, also known as Access Device Act and PD 1612 Anti Fencing Law,” said lawyer Froilan Castelo, Head of Globe Corporate

Seized wimax modems

and Legal Services Group. According to Castelo, such unscrupulous activities not only undermine the company’s broadband business but also adversely affect legitimate subscribers from whom the WIMAX modems are taken.

He added those who are found guilty of violating said law will have to pay a fine of PHP24,000 and faces imprisonment of up to 6 years. The first arrest for the year involved an entrapment operation conducted

in February in SM North Reclamation area in Cebu City that resulted in the apprehension of Ian Niel Abenir and Dominic Zabala, who had offered a Globe employee a lifetime internet connection for only PHP3,500 sing a hacked

WIMAX modem. A follow-up operation led to the arrest of two more individuals identified as Paul Lacaron and Danilo Manataf. Another entrapment operation conducted in April in Novaliches, Quezon City led to the arrest of John Paul Capili for trying to sell a cloned WIMAX modem, also for PHP3,500. Two units of WIMAX modems were confiscated from Capili. In the same month, an entrapment operation conducted in Dasmarinas, Cavite led to the arrest and filing of charges against Jose Narcida, who was also involved in the illegal hacking and sale of Globe modems. An associate of Narcida, Reynald Denapo, was also arrested but was categorized as a witness against Narcida. Also in April, an entrapment operation conducted by police and Globe security personnel led to the arrest of two Visatech employees, identified as Mark Villanueva and Francisco Espino and Christopher Viado, a sales agent of JV Marketing

for illegal sale and installation of WIMAX modems. Three units of WIMAX modems were seized from the suspects. In early May, another joint operation by police and Globe security personnel led to the arrest of Pedro Quias in Quezon City. The suspect is reportedly engaged in the activation of Globe WIMAX modems after pulling out the units from unsuspecting subscribers. A flash drive containing various applications, operating systems used in reconfiguring/ activating MAC addresses was seized from him. A follow-up operation by the police in Quezon City led to the arrest of Rodel Ancheta, a cellphone technician. Police seized from him 17 units of WIMAX modems, and other internet paraphernalia. The latest arrest took place in late May during an entrapment operation in Meycauayan, Bulacan which led to the arrest of Carlo De Ocampo, a cellphone technician, for trying to sell a Globe WIMAX modem for PHP5,000.

BFAR to fishers: let yourselves be counted Residents protest vs new gas station Coastal localities By Roel Catoto of MindaNews

SURIGAO City––The Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) is urging fisherfolk to enlist to the National Fisherfolk Registration Program, which has a funding of P200 million that includes provision for medical insurance to registered fishermen, BFAR director Asis Perez said. Perez and BFAR officials in the Caraga region held a consultative meeting here Tuesday with the local government units (LGUs) and other stakeholders to iron out some issues involving the fishing industry in the region’s five provinces. The intent of the program is to help alleviate the plight of small fishermen, he said, adding that a fisherman who will register is entitled to receive health insurance. “The municipal fisheries sector provides 27 percent of the country’s close to five million metric tons total [annual] fish production volume. This is higher than the contribution of the commercial fishing sector at 21 percent. It is, however, lamentable that this sector composed of at least one million fishermen remains to be the poorest of the poor,” Perez said. Had BFAR completed the list of municipal fisherfolk, Perez said they “could have been given gasoline or diesel subsidy worth P1,200” similar to the Pantawid Pasada Program the government initiated for the public transport sector in the last

few years amid the series of fuel price increases. Perez said the program was also designed to assist LGUs in complying with the provisions of Republic Act 8550 or the Fisheries Code of 1998, particularly the registration of municipal fisherfolk. The bureau had devised mechanisms to ensure the full implementation of this program, which admittedly is long overdue, in close partnership with all coastal cities and municipalities, he said. “There’s a backlog of 15

years and we are seriously pushing this program to be completed this year,” he said. Perez noted they have simplified the registration form to become “fisherfolkfriendly,” with the LGUs allowed to customize the registration certificate and identification card they would issue to reflect their official seals. “For our part, we want to recognize BFAR’s real beneficiaries. We will use the data to generate programs for coastal municipalities, their fisherfolk and organizations,” he said. To ensure “full compliance” by the fisheries sector,

BFAR has earmarked P30 million for distribution to 899 coastal cities and municipalities in the form of incentives. “Through this, fisheries technicians from the local government units in coastal cities and municipalities who will facilitate the registration of fisherfolk will receive an incentive of P15 per registered fisherman,” Perez said. Perez said that coastal localities that can complete the registration of their fisherfolk will qualify to avail at least P2 million worth of fishery projects in 2014. (Roel Catoto/MindaNews)

CAGAYAN de Oro Vice Mayor Caesar Ian E. Acenas referred the petition-opposition of the residents of Aluba Village and nearby compounds at Mandumol, Macasandig relative to the construction of another gasoline station in the area to the City Council committee on energy chaired by Councilor Teodulfo E. Lao Jr. for appropriate action. In their petition, the residents cited that the proposed site for the gas station is a predominantly residential area. According to them, gas fumes emitted each time a vehicle refuels at the station is repugnant to the senses and causes air pollution which is toxic and detrimental to the health especially of children and elderly residents. In addition to this, the residents claimed that during school days there is already daily traffic congestion with vehicles queuing in the area and the operation of another gasoline station will create heavier traffic.

How to Involve the External and Internal Stakeholders in the School-Based Management Program By Justiniana M. Cabigon, Maramag Central Elem. School

For more than thirty years of real teaching-learning experiences, I have observed that the schools’ external and internal stakeholders are factors of successful school-based management program. In some areas of concerns and school endeavors, the GPTA, barangay and municipal officials play an important role in improving the needs of the learners and school. In would say that the collaborative efforts of internal and external in Maramag Central Elem. School have created an impact of educational changes and gradual transformations. Both internal and external stakeholders are interconnected with each other. They are also the limbs and

brains in decision-making process as well as in the extension of moral and financial support. They must work hand in hand to achieve the desired goals and targets of action . They are nerves of the educational system for without them, the school remains ineffective and the vision of quality education is nowhere to achieve. They are always work with full force and camaraderie and extend their sense of volunteerism side by side to extend services in all DepEd thrusts and programs such as National Brigada Eskwela, ChildFriendly School Program, School First Initiative, and Every Child a Reader. They can be tapped in Tree Plant-

ing Activities, Search for Kiddie King and Queen, Education Week Program, Family Day, Buwan ng Wika Celebration, Nutrition Month Celebration and the like. The barangay and municipal officials can also extend their financial support in providing the needs of the school’s athletes, journalists, MTAP, YES-O, STEP contestants. They can also help raise funds to augment the income generating program of the school. More or less, they can help ease the burden of financial problems which currently face by most public schools in the present situation. In most common situations, the participation and involvement of both internal and external stakeholders are called for reassess the

current needs of the schools which are reflected in the School Improvement Plan and Annual Improvement Plan , as a springboard for better improvements and higher academic performances as expected DepEd. In order to achieve the longlasting and meaningful involvement, the internal and external stakeholders have a high degree of commitment, professionalism, and service in the school where they serve. No matter what school the stakeholders involves, the most effective strategy is infusing effective management and services . Are you ready to be an effective stakeholder? Then, try to employ these practices in your school and you will be amazed these colossal differences.

Rodriguez filed House Bill 709, entitled Anti-cable Television and Cable Internet Pilferage Act Of 2013 with the view of addressing this gap. Recently, President Benigno S. Aquino signed into law Republic Act 10515 or the “Anti-Cable Television and Cable Internet Tapping Act of 2013.” The law penalizes a person with imprisonment of 2 years to 5 years and/or a fine ranging from P50,000.00 to P100,000.00 for: (a) intercepting or receiving or assisting in intercepting or receiving, any signal offered over a cable television system or a cable internet system; (b) recording, reproducing, distributing, importing or selling any intercepted or received CATV System/Network signals for commercial purposes without the authority of the concerned CATV Service Provider or Cable Internet Service Provider; (c) using

determining the cost of one standard classroom, then we can safely peg at P1 million as cost for the construction of one classroom. The P70 million yearly congressional fund of each congressman, granting it is spent solely for the const r uc t i on of cl assrooms, would have built 70 classrooms in one year’s time in each congressional district. The perennial problem of lack of classroom would have been addressed in just a year’s time only in Mindanao alone. Assuming there are 60 congressional districts in Mindanao annua l ly allocated in the national budget with P70 million congressional funds, this will total P4.2 billion. If this is pooled in one fiscal year, the pooled amou nt c ou l d a l re a dy fund the conversion of

The rotating brownout in Mindanao would have been addressed already. These things are not happening because the congressmen, not only in Mindanao but all over the country, would rather hang on to their respective congressional funds to fund their favorite projects. Why? Because in doing so they are reportedly giving themselves the chance to earn alleged kickback from projects, soft or hard, funded by their congressional fund, which is by the way a euphemism for pork barrel. A n d w hy are t h e s e cong ressmen obs ess ed in earning supposed kickbacks from projects funded by their pork barrel? They are said to be resorting to this so that they can recoup what they have spent to get them-

correct format of DepEd Format of Action Research. Accordingly, any action research to be conducted and studied by the teachers in the field must seek approval to the higher office for validation purposes. It was also suggested that a new DepEd format of action research , which is also currently utilized by public

school teachers nationwide, must be strictly followed. Here is the format of Action Research: I. Situation II. The Problem III. Generation og Alternative Solution IV. Plan of Action ( includes the Objectives, Time Frame, Target Subject ) V. Research Design VI. Finding of the Study VII. Conclusions and Recom-

mendations VIII. Reflections IX. Bibliography During the seminar proper, the teachers were required to submit at least one output to be presented to the whole groups. After the activity, the participants were given a certificate of participation and fact sheets which will be utilized by teachers for their re-echo

sessions in their respective clusters or district. A credit to the resource speakers who had taken up the cudgels to this output-based activity, to the different committees that extended their collaborative support of the DepEd thrust and programs in developing and honing the innovative skills of the teachers.

Vice President Jejomar C. Binay, concurrent Chairman of the Housing and Urban Development Coordinating Council and the Pag-IBIG Fund Board of Trustees, commended the Pag-IBIG Fund on the awards it has received for its excellent performance during the formal presentation of said awards at the Coconut Palace. “Ako ay nagpapasalamat sa inyo dahil sa maayos ninyong pagsasakatuparan sa direksiyong aking inilahad nang ako’y umupo bilang Chairman ng Housing and Urban Development Coordinating Council at ng Pag-IBIG Board, magtatatlong taon na ang nakararaan. Malaking bagay sa ating tagumpay ang ating pagkakaisa’t pagtutulungan para lalong mapaigi ang Pag-IBIG Fund. Madalas nga ninyong sabihin, at inuulit ko rin – bigger, better, faster Pag-IBIG Fund!” said Vice President Binay, as he addressed the audience of Pag-IBIG officials, led by their President and Chief Executive Officer, Atty. Darlene Marie B. Berberabe. Pag-IBIG Trustees and partners also joined the presentation.

The Pag-IBIG Citi Prepaid Card has been highly commended as a Best Card Solution at the Adam Smith Awards, making Pag-IBIG the first government institution to receive such recognition. Pag-IBIG’s membership registration processes passed the Surveillance Audit and maintained its ISO 9001:2008 Certification, signifying its capacity to participate in the international arena. The Civil Service Commission conferred the Citizen’s Satisfaction Center Seal of Excellence to Pag-IBIG Davao Branch, and four other branches received Excellent Rating at the AntiRed Tape Act Survey, showing Pag-IBIG’s discipline in providing excellent service to its members. Atty. Berberabe has been chosen as the Outstanding CEO of the Year by the Association of Development Financing Institutions in Asia and the Pacific, the first Filipina to win said award, for her exceptional leadership in making PagIBIG an excellent organization true to its mandate of delivering to its members and stakeholders a saving culture and access to

finance for housing and other basic needs. Meanwhile, her Deputy CEO for Support Services Cluster, Ms. Emma Linda B. Faria, has been named the Outstanding Government Chief Financial Officer in the Philippines at the Government CFO Awards, the first to be awarded in the country, for leading Pag-IBIG in sustaining its financial stability through innovative systems, prudence in fund management, and discipline in fund utility. Pag-IBIG’s awards are testaments of its quest for excellence, as it executes the directions set by Vice President Binay, who added, “Ang mga pagkilala at gantimpalang inyong natatanggap ay magagandang sorpresa na hindi sinasarili, bagkus ay dapat ibahagi sa ating mga miyembro. Ang ating 12.6 milyong miyembro ang tunay na panalo kapag kinikilala ang kagalingan ng Pag-IBIG Fund.” Almost three years since Vice President Binay assumed leadership at PagIBIG in the latter part of 2010, Pag-IBIG has grown in terms of membership and assets, and has increased

its benefits for its members, the Filipino workers worldwide. Membership has grown from 8.8 million at the start of 2011 to the current 12.6 million worldwide. The P320-billion housing agency continues to increase the dividends it credits to its members at the end of each year. In 2012, it posted the highest dividend amount ever, at P9.28 billion, which is P0.79 billion more than the one given out in 2011. The Fund’s net income also increased from 2011’s P11.96 billion to 2012’s P13.26 billion. Recent months saw the reduction of Pag-IBIG’s calamity loan interest rate from 10.75% to 5.95%. Its Affordable Housing Loan Program boasts of a 4.5% interest rate, the lowest in Pag-IBIG history. The maximum housing loan amount also doubled from the previous P3 million to the current P6 million, with loan terms still as long as 30 years.

From where did the excess of 1,858 votes — also in the PCOS — come?” -oooBIBLE & KORAN WILL TRANSFORM PNP, NOT P9B: Once again, I do not wish to be “killjoy”, but I strongly believe that even if President Aquino has already approved the P9 billion “transformation fund” for the use of the Philippine National Police (PNP) between 2013 to 2016, there wouldn’t be any substantial improvement in the delivery of various police services to our people. What the President must aspire for is a “transformation of the spirit” of each and every PNP officer and employee, by compelling them to undergo a change of their

minds, instilling in them the fear and love of God, no matter what their religion maybe. For even if the PNP is made awash with cash, and its guns and equipment modernized, nothing is going to change if the bag eggs and the scalawags and the abusers and extortionists in its rooster are not transformed, too. To effect this change of mind, I suggest that the PNP must be made to immediately undertake Bible or Koran studies, depending on the religious affiliation of its officers and civilian employees, and make this a regular, if daily, part of official routine. There is really a need to change the mind of men and women in the PNP, as Romans 12:2 of the Holy Bible is saying. Then and only then will real transformation start, PNP Director General Allan Purisima. -oooREACTIONS? Please call me at 0917 984 24 68,

AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18) - You’re feeling the urge for a quick change -- but the day’s energy demands care and slow progress. That’s hard to resolve, but if you can wait another day or so, things should work out well. PISCES (February 19 – March 20) - Your love life is just about to take off again, so make sure that you’ve got time to get swept off your feet! Of course, you may be doing the sweeping, but in one way or another, things are about to get really sweet. ARIES (March 21 – April 19) - Take stock of what you’ve got today. That should largely be focused on material possessions, but you may also find it somewhat fruitful to think about your spiritual resources as well. TAURUS (April 20 – May 20) - A financial windfall drops into your lap today -- or maybe it’s something you’ve been planning for a while. Either way, it’s a great time to focus on your future and investments. GEMINI (May 21 – June 21) - Someone is pushing into your business just a wee bit too much -- but you need to try to find a way to push them back gently. It’s easier than you think, but it may take some serious finesse. CANCER (June 22 – July 22) - It’s a pretty comfortable day for you and your people, as you enjoy old routines or customs and take a little extra time to make those around you feel welcome. Socializing is key! LEO (July 23 – August 22) - It’s one of those days when you need to deal with a friend or coworker who is acting like a diva. Try not to let them have it, as you may actually find that they are easier to handle when their ego is massaged. VIRGO (August 23 – September 22) - Your mental energy is deep and thoughtful now, and you should be able to reconcile a new problem with an old belief. It’s a great time for big discussions and long-term planning.

LIBRA (September 23 – October 22) - Your emotional side is a force of nature today, so others had better get out of your way when you go on a tear! If course, that should only happen once or maybe twice, and should have positive results.

It should happen early today so you have time to respond thoughtfully -- but it may be better to gather support.

K-12... from page 1

Bayan on Friday said that through DepEd’s K-12 curriculum, high school students will be equipped with different skills and be ready for the world of work when they graduate. She added that these skills are that of the standards of the Technical Education Skills Development Authority (TESDA) and equivalent of the National Certificate II (NCII). When a high school student graduates at 18 years old, he or she will be allowed to apply and get a job without violating any child labor policies, she added. Medarda B. Galarrita, regional information officer and education program supervisor of DepEd region 10 said that K to 12 is already a law under R.A. 10533, The Enhanced Basic Education of 2013 or K to 12 ACT signed by the President on May this year. This law mandates that a child must enter kindergarten, go through elementary for six years, undergo junior high school for four years and should finish senior high school for two years. She said that elementary is from grades one to six, junior high school is from grades 7 to 10 while senior high school is from grades 11 to 12. Subjects that are taught in elementary are Filipino, English, Science, Araling Panlipunan, Values Education and Music, Arts, Physical Education and Health. For junior high school, subjects taught are Filipino, English, Science, Mathematics, Hekasi, Edukasyong Pantahanan at Pangkabuhayan and Musika, Sining at Edukasyong Pampalakas ng Katawan. Meanwhile, finalization of subjects in senior high school is still being crafted as various consultations with different sectors are ongoing, Medarda said. On the other hand, Wilfreda explained that K to 12 was realized so that we can level-off with other countries as we have been left out in terms of education. The first graduates of the K to 12 program will be on 2018. (JMOR/PIA10)

The dispute, military said, came about following a discovery of “double issuances of Certificate of Land Ownership Award (CLOAs) in the contested tri-boundary forcing each party to claim their piece of land.” According to Erie, the platoons manning the task force asserted its role in the conflict area near BarkoBarko to ensure security and safety of the affected families. Setting up a base in sitio Kapok near BarkoBarko, the Joint Ceasefire Monitoring Post (JCMP) established by the Government of the Philippines (GPH) and the MILF Coordinating Committee on the Cessation of Hostilities (CCCH) is monitoring the situation in Barko-Barko area. “The MILF had already repositioned its forces at Sitio Polomolok, Barangay Elbebe, Columbio to pave the way for the peaceful resolution of the land conflict,” said Abbas Salung, chairman of the MILF CCCH.

GPH CCCH chairman Brig. Gen. Cesar Dionisio Sedillo Jr., also said: “We (CCCH) will continue to monitor the situation and the adherence of the parties to the general ceasefire agreement between the GPH and the MILF in conflict-affected areas.” Sedillo also vowed to assist in the validation of reports related to ceasefire violations that would be committed by both parties so that immediate actions could properly be taken and done. In the send-off ceremony of the peacekeeping force in Barangay Maybula, Tulunan last week, concerned municipal chief executives called for a peaceful resolution of the armed conflict. They also urged for the intervention of the national government to help resolve the land dispute. Me anw hi le, 1002nd Infantr y Brigade commander Col. Marcos Norman Flores Jr., expressed optimism for the quiet resolution of conflict in contested areas saying “the improving situation in Barko-Barko signals a peaceful approach in resolving disputes.” “This is a clear manifestation of our “Bayanihan” efforts in attaining lasting peace,” he said. C ol. Flores has t he “overall supervision” of Joint Task Force Barko since the contested areas are part of the brigade’s jurisdiction. “We will adhere to the primacy of the peace process and we will always support the local government and their constituents in the call for a just and lasting peace and sustainable development,” he added.

Biblical reflection

Bro. Edcel L. Closas

Treasure in heaven Fresh Gospel of the day: Mark10:17-27(July4, 2013-Thursday)Mark 10:1727-And when he was gone forth into the way, there came one running, and kneeled to him, and asked him, Good Master, what shall I do that I may inherit eternal life? And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? [there is] none good but one, [that is], God. Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Defraud not, Honour thy father and mother. And he answered and said unto him, Master, all these have I observed from my youth. Then Jesus beholding him loved him, and said unto him, One thing thou lackest: go thy way, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have “treasure in heaven” and come, take up the cross, and follow me. And he was sad at that saying, and went away grieved: for he had great possessions. And Jesus looked round about, and saith unto his disciples, How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the kingdom of God! And the disciples were astonished at his words. But Jesus answereth again, and saith unto them, Children, how hard is it for them that trust in riches to enter into the kingdom of God! It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God. And they were astonished out of measure, saying among themselves, Who then can be saved? And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men [it is] impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible:SPONSORED:Neneth Bobong Balino- Dr. Edith, PhDTony Jordan - CDO.

survey gathers information on the demographic and economic characteristics, health status and education of the family members; awareness and use of family planning methods; housing, water and sanitation condition of the families; availment of credit to finance the family business or enterprise; and income and expenditures of the family. In addition, it gathers information on the effect of the economic crisis in families and the steps they had taken in response to these problems. In Cagayan de Oro City and Misamis Oriental, a total of 200 sample households will be interviewed for this survey. There will b e Field interviewers that will be hired to do the actual interview in the sample households. The enumeration will

start on July 8, 2013 and will end on July 31, 2013.
