Honda Launches Their Flagship Vehicle, the All-New Legend 3.5 Sport Hybrid SH-AWD (DCT) with an integrated high-performance electric motor. At the rear a Twin Motor Unit (TMU) and an intelligent power unit equipped with highpower lithium-ion batteries are located. Each rear motor is independently controlled and can provide either drive or deceleration power to its wheel in any ratio. This technology is called the advanced torque vectoring system which provides highly stable handling performance in a wide range of driving situations. Lastly, placed at the center of the vehicle

is a power drive unit that controls the three electric motors. These are the main components of the AllNew Legend’s advanced hybrid system. Furthermore, the advanced hybrid system automatically combines front-wheel drive, rearwheel drive, or all-wheel drive with Engine drive, Electric Vehicle Drive or Hybrid drive as a response to the driver’s inputs and driving conditions to ensure optimal performance and outstanding fuel economy. Overall this powertrain delivers power similar to a

V8 engine and a 4-cylinder like fuel economy. MUGEN and Modulo accessories are also made available which can be purchased individually or as a package for added convenience and style. Available MUGEN accessories are Carbon Fiber Front Lower Spoiler, Carbon Fiber Ducktail Spoiler, Sports Luggage Mat, and 20inch Aluminum Wheel.

Isuzu introduces 3.0-liter variants of the Isuzu D-MAX and mu-X Isuzu Philippines Corporation (IPC) officially unveils the 3.0 VGS Turbo variants of D-MAX and

mu-X model in response to power driven customer demands. “While our current D-MAX and mu-X

Thus, we are giving our customers the freedom to choose – between our current 2.5-liter engine and the new 3.0 VGS Turbo variant,” said IPC President Hajime Koso. Earlier previewed in Thailand, both the Isuzu D-MAX and mu-X is equipped with one of Isuzu’s most powerful engine, the new 4JJ1-TC (HI) 3.0-liter Diesel engine, which produces 163 Ps at 3,200 rpm and a high 380 Nm of torque from 1,800 to 2,200 rpm.

A youth here, a youth there, a youth everywhere DURING my younger years, my former neighbor and a good friend shared with me this poem entitled: “A youth here, a youth there, a youth everywhere.” Oh! Ten boys, sitting on a low boat, parking on a bay lot, singing a sweet bee song. Oh! How nice to see a youth. A youth here, a youth there, a youth everywhere. This poem speaks well of how playful and adventurer a young is. I also love swimming before. In fact, I even almost spent most of the day swimming in Cagayan de Oro river during my younger years. The dictionary defines youth as “the time of life between childhood and maturity.” And now that all those political aspirants have already filed their respective Certificates of Candidacy (COCs) before the Commission on Elections (Comelec), expect the youth, which our national hero Dr. Jose P. Rizal calls as the “Fair hope of my Motherland,” to be at the forefront of the 2016 local and national

elections as “volunteers.” When former Senator Jovito Salonga joined the presidential race, I volunteered myself as among the members of youth speaker’s bureau of the Kabataang Liberal ng Pilipinas (Kalipi). With the strong support of students from various schools nationwide, I and my colleagues have the strong feeling that Salonga would win, but unfortunately he lost the 1992 presidential election. After that election, I decided not to join in any political exercise anymore. What happened to my

vote and why Salonga landed only in number 6 among the seven-person race in the official tally were just some of the curious questions I am asking myself. But I was just thankful that some of the youth during that time were not as passive as today. Well, an election is coming. You have already elected the brightest––and probably the dullest––but still, I heard more complain than satisfaction. We believe, we expect, and we hope when President Ferdinand Marcos said: “This nation can be great again.” You elected Cory Aquino because you want democracy restored and protected or, probably voted the most-travelled President Fidel Ramos. Voted Joseph Estrada or, Gloria Arroyo because of her “pagkain sa bawat misa” and, or PNoy because he calls you “the boss?” What now? Are you contented? They said: “You will never know what is enough unless

whether stranger or long time residents. It has become a home for people from Luzon, the Visayas and from everywhere in Mindanao. It welcomes every human being and it includes even the worst elements or outcasts from other provinces. And because the bad elements, the rebels or anyone has made the city their home, they behave well and just do not make any move that would disturb the peace and order situation. Many of them just relax around, enjoy the extreme peace, watch movies, eat in restaurants with people and move freely without any fear or anxiety. They rub elbows with everyone

in the streets. They mix with religious people, attend church services and everything like anyone else in society. They are good people in public, obedient and very friendly. One would not know whether a man walking in the street is a rebel or a city resident or a visiting official. By his face, he is a Filipino through and though and nothing of the sort that could distinguish him from others. The rebels are our brothers in flesh and blood and I have been saying they should be encouraged to come down from the hills and join the society, the same thing with the ordinary troublemakers who understand our language for peace and they can also be persuaded to participate in the building of a city towards peace, growth and development. They are not our enemies or if they are, we can establish a friendship from within their kingdom. People from far and near are welcomed into our fold and treated precisely the same way as others.

I WAS really delighted, during a two-day discussion held by the IBC Asia, the 7th Annual Higher Education Summit, Asia, on October 19-20, 2015 at Grand Corpthorne Waterfront Hotel, Singapore. The attendants were worldwide, from different regions throughout the globe. That was an international discussion of Higher Education Institutions (HEIs). It was really great, but it left some ideas in my mind to ponder again and again. IBC Asia is a business organization that produces over 200 conferences and training courses annually, both in the region and internationally. This organization has done a lot of conferences and training courses related to education and industry partnerships and the like. Apart from this organization, I am interested in the theme chosen in the event recently. First of all, I was very glad to meet the experts from around the world. Especially the IBC and the conference producermanager, Ms. Mavis Yong, with the invitation for free given to me, as one of the speakers on that forum. More specifically, I was very glad to meet the chair in my panel discussion, Dr. Piere Tapie, the best leader I have ever seen in that panel. The theme, as specially given to me is “How much emphasis is universities putting into partnerships”. With this topic, actually there are still some ideas for more discussion even up to now. Secondly, it was not only about HEIs but also more topics related to high technology and the education system and process improvement. These dealt with topics about teaching and learning innovations. A lot of ideas were merged and blended in the same forum.

Discipline

Juvy Sarraga

“If you reject discipline, you only harm yourself; but if you listen to correction, you grow in understanding.” -Proverbs 15:32 Discipline can be a hard thing to take, especially as an adult when we are so used to getting everything our way.

But isn’t it true that when you fight discipline it only makes things worse? Those who fight it end up feeling the pain much harsher. Public figures who deny scandals and later turn out to be true are disciplined much harsher. Don’t fight it and grow.

Business entities join PH water security bid Editorial: e-mail: mindanaodailynews@gmail.com • Advertising: e-mail: mindanaodaily.ads@gmail.com Contact: 0917-7121424, 0947-8935776

Philippine business stakeholders will collectively help promote nationwide water security which is essential in building up the country’s resilience to climate change. Such stakeholders formed the Water Alliance group and committed undertaking various activities for rationalizing and reducing water use and demand, recognizing climate change, unsustainable waterrelated activities and business operations’ heavy reliance on water are drivers of water scarcity that’s a bane for business and the country’s development. “We’ll pool resources for the purpose,” Philippine Business for Social Progress (PBSP) Executive

Director Rafael Lopa said at a press conference after Water Alliance’s launch in Metro Manila on Friday (October 23). He noted Water Alliance also plans establishing a knowledge hub featuring water-friendly alternatives which business entities can adapt and even replicate. “We’ll share what can be done to help address the water problem,” he said. Water Alliance aims developing a water agenda that’s aligned with government’s thrusts. The alliance’s secretariat is PBSP, the country’s largestbusiness-led social development organization promoting poverty reduction. Pilipinas Shell Petroleum Corp. CEO Edgar Chua highlighted urgency for the business

sector’s action on water, noting abundance of water resources nationwide isn’t an assurance of water security in the country. “Our country has 20 major river basins, 421 principal river basins, 79 lakes and extensive groundwater resources but those won’t be sufficient to provide the water security we need - climate change will affect these resources while demand for water will increase,” he said at the Water Alliance’s launch. He said 17 of the country’s river basins face water shortage by 2025. “Such river basins are located in areas where economic and population growth is expected,” he noted. Citing data from water czar and public works chief Secretary

Rogelio Singson, Chua likewise said less than a fifth of the country’s population have access to safe drinking water while only about a third of people nationwide have household-level water and sanitation services. “Those shortfalls have serious impacts on economic growth, health and the country’s overall development,” Chua warned. PBSP, Pilipinas Shell, Maynilad Water Services Inc., Manila Water Company Inc., Pepsi Cola Products Philippines, Nestle Philippines, Unilever Philippines, Mabuhay Vinyl Corp., Manila Electric Co., Energy Development Corp., Aboitiz Group of Companies, Smart Communications, Lafarge and Makati Business Club (MBC) are among Water Alliance’s initial members.

Dur ing Water Alliance’s launch, other business stakeholders expressed interest in joining the group. USAID’s Be Secure (Water Security for Resilient Economic Growth and Stability) Project proponents contacted PBSP on harnessing business sector solutions, expertise and resources. Such move aims to help enhance the sector’s contribution to water security and increase water access in the country’s waterless and water-stressed communities. The four-year B e Secure project seeks promoting good governance and build capacity for long-term water security, improve access to water and wastewater treatment services and build more resilient communities nationwide.

Health dept: haze brings increased respiratory risks, cardiac ailments By Elaine O. Ratunil of PIA-10

CAGAYAN de Oro City–– Haze due to forest can cause air pollution which can bring about increased risks for respiratory tract infections and cardiac ailments. According to the Department of Health (DOH), haze contains dust, smoke particles and air pollutants such as sulfur dioxide, nitrogen dioxide, ozone, carbon monoxide and particulate matter. Haze is a slight obscuration of the lower atmosphere, typically caused by fine suspended particles. It is a result of an aggregation in the atmosphere of very fine, widely dispersed, solid or liquid particles or both in relatively dry air, giving the air an opalescent appearance. Increased in the levels of particulate matter is generally expected during forest fires. As a result of the small particulate size, these particles can go deep into the lungs and in some cases, enter the bloodstream. Particularly, matter whose diameter is less than 2.5 micrometer (PM2.5) can penetrate right into the small air sacs in our lungs when inhaled, thereby posing the highest health risk. Short term exposure to

particles (hours or days) can aggravate lung disease, causing asthma attacks and acute bronchitis and may also increase susceptibility to respiratory infections. In people with heart disease, short term exposure can be linked to heart attacks and arrhythmias. The health effects can be further classified into local and systemic effects. Local effects can result in eye, nose and throat irritation. People with history of sinus problems or sensitive nose are more likely to develop nasal congestion, sore throat and coughing. There may be increased incidents of skin irritation as well for eczema or other skin conditions. Systemic effects such as asthma attacks, bronchitis or worsening of heart diseases are more serious effects of air pollution. Also, there have been suggestions that long term exposure to air pollution may rise to increase risk of cancer. Per state weather bureau, PAGASA (Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration), during the 6th Regular Meeting of the Regional Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (RDRRMC)-X Technical Working Group, Mindanao is experiencing since October 18 a haze

caused by the smog of Indonesia’s wildfire which also continues to affect Singapore, Thailand, and Malaysia. The southwesterly winds drove the smog toward Mindanao where the haze became visible in most parts of the island, particularly in the north and northeastern. Meanwhile, DOH advises the public what to do during haze. For elderly, children and those with respiratory-asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and cardiovascular diseases, stay indoors with good ventilation; wear appropriate dust masks when going outside the house; refrain from physical activities (exercise, etc) in heavily polluted areas. Motorists, on the other hand, should exercise extreme caution whenever on the road to prevent accidents by using headlights/ foglights; follow the required minimum speed level and extreme caution in low, visibility driving; and ensure that vehicle is in good running condition. Further, stay away from low-lying areas where smoke and suspended particles may settle. It is important to consult a doctor if there is difficulty in breathing, cough, chest pain, increased tearing of the eyes, and nose or throat irritation. (EOR/PIA10)

Protective Masks. Health authorities in General Santos City have informed

residents on the possible consequences of the haze that has enveloped the city since Sunday (Oct. 18) and advised them to take necessary precautions. The haze reportedly came from forest fires in Indonesia, and have also reached other areas in Mindanao. MindaNews photo by Rommel Rebollido

What to do with typhoon-damaged crops THE Department of Agriculture (DA) said on Wednesday that damages caused by typhoon Lando to agriculture has reached more than P6 billion. Aurora, Nueva Ecija and Isabela, three rice-producing provinces of the Philippines, were severely affected by the super typhoon. To help farmers recover from the damages brought by super typhoon Lando,

experts at the Philippine Rice Research Institute (PhilRice) recommended strategies on how to manage typhoon-damaged crops. In harvesting crops submerged in water or mud, farmers can use the combine harvester provided that the field is already dry. “If the crop submerged in water is easy to drain, combine harvester can be used provided that no or

minimum moisture is present in the panicles to minimize grain losses during operation. For submerged crop with drainage problem, manual harvesting is advisable to save the grains from deterioration,” said Arnold Juliano, PhilRice’s agricultural engineer. Using mechanical dryer is also recommended as it allows drying during See crops, page A11

PNP Chief Marquez visits Caraga BUTUAN City––Philippine National Police chief Police Director General Ricardo C. Marquez visited Camp Rafael C. Rodriguez, the regional headquarters of the Police Regional Office 13, this city; for his first regional visit after he assumed his position as the highest police officer of the country on July 16, 2015. Marquez arrived at the camp at 1:30 p.m. together with Police Director Jonathan Ferdinand G. Miano, director of the Directorate for Operations; Police Director Generoso R. Cerbo, Jr., director of the Directorate for Intelligence; Police Director Benjamin B. Magalong, director of the Directorate for Investigation and Detection Management; and Chief Supt. Rene W. Ong, deputy director of

the Directorate for Police Community Relations. The PNP chief was welcomed by a battalion-sized police formation for his arrival honors in front of the camp administration building, headed by Caraga PNP chief PCSupt. Vert T. Chavez. Marquez gave his guidance to the officers and personnel of the officers and personnel of the regional headquarters right after the arrival rites. He reiterated his policy that the police should go back to the basics of community policing which is doing beat patrol. “I don’t want to see any PO1 or Inspectors in the regional or provincial headquarters. They ought to be with the Regional Public Safety Battalion, the Provincial Public Safety Companies, City

Public Safety Companies or the Municipal Police Stations. They should be on the streets doing beat patrols,” Marquez said. Marquez pointed out that the police should not expect the community to come to them. They should be the one who would go down to their respective communities. “There’s no other way for the police to be effective than by being on the streets,” said Marquez. According to him here the police differ from the military. Soldiers stay in their camps when not on combat patrols, but police are expected to mingle with the community. “Go to the homes of the complainants…to the witnesses. We may not be able to prevent an incident to happen, but we have to do our very best to solve them,” he said.

Aside from basic community policing, Marquez also challenge the regional police to intensify the “Lambat-Sibat” (Net and Spear or “Pukot-Bangkaw” in the dialect). The program caused a downtrend of crimes in Metro Manila, according to Marquez. He also mentioned about the cascading of the firearms licensing to the regional office level, professionalizing the non-uniformed personnel (NUPs), to instill strict discipline among the ranks and not to be involved in partisan politics. “Our task is to maintain peace and order and enforce the law, and not to be engaged in partisan politics,” he said. A command conference then followed where the national police chief was briefed on the updates of

Group seeks niche for PH coffee abroad despite local supply lack DAVAO City––A group has pushed for creating a niche for Philippine specialty coffee in the Asean markets and other parts of the world despite the 70,000-metric ton annual deficit in local supply. During the 8th National Coffee Summit in Davao City on Thursday, Philippine Coffee Board Inc. co-chair Pacita U. Juan told reporters that coffee farmers must take advantage of the zero tariff rates that will be implemented as the Asean Economic Community takes effect in December this year. Juan said most of the country’s annual coffee production of 23,000 metric tons

are Robusta and set aside for instant coffee while 10,000 MT are for the “roast and grind”. Of the 10,000 MT, only 2,000 MT are produced as specialty coffee, which can compete in terms of quality with that of the coffee-producing regions of the world. The country’s annual coffee production is way below the annual consumption of 100,000 MT that it has to import from Vietnam and Indonesia to fill in the supply gap. Aside from Arabica and Robusta, the other varieties grown in the Philippines are Excelsa and Liberica.

At least 70 percent of the country’s production is coming from the mountainous areas of Mindanao such as Davao Region, Bukidnon, and Sulu. She cited the highland catimor coffee grown in Kapatagan, Digos City by businessman Sonny Dizon that won 1st runner up in the Syphon Category and 2nd runner up in the Espresso category during the Roaster’s Choice Awards last year. She added Mt. Apo is blessed with micro climate, meaning it can yield fruits all-year round, aside from the soil and farming practices that contribute to quality.

Juan said the labels on the sacks of these coffees must indicate the origin, name of the farm, and name of the farmer so that it can be easily identified in the international market. This technique is currently being done in Benguet in the Cordillera. The coffee board is training coffee farmers on methods to improve the quality, especially the flavor, by teaching them

how to ferment and undergo the washing method. The body is also advocating for the “pick red cherries” practice to ensure that only the beans that are at the height of ripeness are harvested. “The best coffee is when you can drink it hot and cold. If you cannot drink it when it’s cold, there must be something wrong with your coffee,” Juan said. (Antonio L. Colina IV/MindaNews)

Youth... from page A4

you will notice many people speak different dialects. You will hear people conversing in Pilipino, in Ilonggo, Waray Waray, Surigaonon, Butuanon, Muslim, Chinese, Bukidnon and all these dialects only indicate they come from far away places and have settled with us for good. They are nice people determined to make a living thus contribute to the growth and development of Cagayan de Oro. Indeed, these people like our attitude or habit in welcoming them and their feeling of true golden friendship, far and beyond comparison. And our friendship is sincere that emanate directly from our hearts. It is tainted with honor and pride that even make it more wonderful. Our city has always been clean, a real source of prestige and dignity––things that attract even more good people. O ur gover nment is friendly and always ready to serve everyone, whether new arrival or long time residents. Our land area is so wide and more than enough for everyone to build their homes. The power supply is unlimited as well as a source of sanitary water for use by lots of people. Speaking of comfort and nice living, Cagayan de Oro is on the top and can stand in all degrees of comparison with big cities in the Visayas and Luzon. On top of all these, the city is sandwiched by nice and equally peaceful cities of Malaybalay, Butuan and Iligan.

As William Blake says: “You never know what is enough unless you know what is more than enough.” Today, the cry for Davao City Mayor Rodrigo “Digong” Duterte to run for president did not subside even if the COC filing is closed. Many of Digong’s supporters are still hoping that he would change his decision and ultimately run via substitution on December 10, the last day set by the Comelec for the filing of substitute candidates of the political parties. Anyway, if Digong is not interested, there are other candidates that the youth should start choosing-and probably endorse: Mar Roxas, Grace Poe, Jejomar Binay, and Miriam Santiago. Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once has said: “One of the great liabilities of history is that all too many people fail to remain awake through great periods of social change. Every society has its protectors of status quo and its fraternities of the indifferent who are notorious for sleeping through revolutions. Today, our very survival depends on our ability to stay awake, to adjust to new ideas, to remain vigilant and to face the challenge of change.” Also to the young men and women, remember what Steve Jobs has said: “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma--which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, from page A4 And, therefore, the parhave the courage to follow your heart and intuition.” ticipants in both the attendants and the speakers were enthusiastic trying to get the from page A4 gist of each topic for getting a profound understanding.

approaches to tackling the world social, economic, as well as cultural problems. By doing so, HEIs are the agent of change, not merely getting to be more practical compromise with the business or industries’ purposes. Another point of view is that HEIs can also be led into more practical compromise with the skilled labors required by the industries surrounding them. However, these HEIs should not be in a bigger number of proportions compared to that of the HEIs of being autonomous. In my understanding, the participants are from different perspectives depending on where they are from or what countries they are managing their colleges or universities. Supposing it was in my country, Indonesia, we know that schools, colleges, or universities are considered the non-business oriented. In this case, the innovation and strategy implemented in this country should be related to those not-profit interests. Colleges or universities are the domain of the government. Thus, being international colleges or universities needs to ponder more strategies. Though, HEIs tend to be more business-like profiles, the government must be responsible for the nation building. This is related to the local or regional cultures or local values inserted into the curriculum for keeping the nations having the nationalism perspectives. Otherwise, the remote areas with the people who are not yet developed find their critical problems in their own countries, economically, socially, and especially culturally. Industries wishing partnerships with HEIs can adapt to how much emphasis they are putting. For example, they can collaborate in research dealing with high-tech-innovations, concerning the HEIs’ disciplines of sciences. HEIs should be the real agents of the world public. Besides, industries can also collaborate with HEIs in overcoming the discrepancies between the theories and the practices related to the skilled labors required by the industries. In this respect, they should both hand-in-hands collaborating to enhance much more on practical purposes. They are involved together in overcoming the problems with jobs and employability of the HEIs graduates. Apprenticeship is also one of the examples. --Dr. Djuwari Sarkawi is the Director of Language Laboratory, STIE Perbanas Surabaya.
