Peso may recover after lackluster US jobs data THE PESO could bounce back against the dollar at the start of the week after the latest US non-farm payrolls (NFP) report missed expectations, although “cautious” trading is still expected as market players anticipate

the release of the minutes of the Federal Reserve’s latest meeting. The peso ended flat against the dollar on Friday to close at P46.77 versus the greenback, almost unchanged from its previous

day’s finish of P46.76 per dollar. Week on week, the peso was up by nine centavos compared to its P46.86 close last Sept. 24. Traders interviewed by phone last week said the

US jobs data will direct the movement of the dollar-peso trading. “Trading will be dependent on the NFP figures that will come out. Should it beat expectations, then we’ll see the dollar surge further [this] week and peso to test new lows ... otherwise, we might see

the peso recover its previous losses,” one trader said ahead of the data release on Friday. “We expect continued cautious and sentimentdriven trading, particularly depending on leads overseas,” the trader added. Another trader said the jobs data is important as it

provides guidance for the Fed on the state of its labor sector, a key consideration for its rate hike decision. “Trading will be sentiment driven, so strong NFP will boost the dollar, while disappointing data will drag it at least at the start of the week... we expect continued volatility towards the end of the week as market players will keep its eyes on US economic data releases -- the weekly jobless claims report, ISM non-manufacturing index, and the release of the FOMC (Federal Open Market Committee) minutes.” The US Labor Department reported on Friday that non-farm payrolls added last September totaled 142,000, widely missing expectations. One trader said the peso could move within the P46.40 to P46.70-per-dollar band, while another said it could be in the P46.60P46.90 range. But despite financial market vol at i lit ies on worries over the slowing Chinese economy and the anticipated US rate hike this year, the peso is expected to remain among the most resilient currencies in Asia, according to Standard Chartered economist Jeffrey Ng. “Our bullishness for the peso to rebound is mainly led by our hope of a very dovish US Fed rate hike... The Philippine peso has been one of the stronger currencies so far,” Mr. Ng said last week. -- Imee Charlee C.

A strong brand spells business NEW HOTELS in Davao City are becoming taller and bigger with more high technology application in safety and security. it looks like business prospects and financial projection grow larger as well. In spite of the incident in Samal Island, developers are putting a tag or brand name, a sign that foreign management company are welcome in Mindanao with full support from the City Government. Whether it is a marketing gimmick or engaging international management company have a special purpose aside from their equity infusion in branding? Joint ventures continue to bring in new investors. With the Asean Economic Integration set to happen this December 2015, guest profile is gravitating to change with more businesspersons and foreign individual tourist dominating the market. Foreign guests patronizing a foreign brand pay more. The average room rate per occupied room will change dramatically at far with the price range in Kuala Lumpur or Metro Manila and Cebu City. International management chain coming to the Philippines is advantageous to local business; the brand draws more

attention to give more value to the product. Globalization has opened the local hotel ownerships to foreign influence, we are not lacking in management expertise, but foreign management company brings exchange of ideas and international networks. We learn in all aspects of hotel management, not just office culture and working habits but on room designs and food presentation techniques, marketing approach and implementations of plans. However, it is also normal to expect difficulties in a collaboration that involves different cultures. Sometimes, it is simply a matter of personalities or disagreement with local owners but Filipino Managers must be ready to assist the expat Managers make decisions as they speak the common hotel language. If the members of the team are sensitive and cooperative then a harmonious and gratifying work will result. In retrospect, to my earlier career in the hotel industry, I have the opportunity to work with an American hotel firm who managed the local hotel where I was employed. Working with the Hyatt Group, which is an international brand

Traversing the Tourism Hi-way

Ped T. Quiamjot worldwide, was very easy. There was a good team –work, we consult them and they consult us, they do not dictate. Interesting are our guests mixed where we got two foreign airline companies who used our property for their crew layover. We enjoyed 60 percent local guests and 40 percent foreign clients driving our room rates higher. Occupancies continued to grow when our senior expat Managers were doing sales trips to the long haul market of North America and Europe. Strong brand names when written on billboards or projected through neon signs have huge impact to the onlooker. This is also true with consumable goods manufactured by known multinational companies

operating in the Philippines that add luxury to the environment. I have this unforgettable experience in a Northern Mindanao city, when out of ignorance or pride, the property owner decided to build a giant billboard on top of his hotel, advertising an industrial product brand of one of his emerging company. The neon sign can be seen by the public up to seven kilometers radius, it has received a negative perception to the businessmen and hotel clients who patronized the property. The hotel brand was eroded and it could be one of the prime reasons of its series of losses. There are more marketing specialist now but concept and advises could also be misplaced. They might have forgotten that in the hotel industry, everything are equal in terms of knowledge and must take into consideration in marketing a product. Sharing one platform in advertising confuses the public and erodes an established brand aside from alienating itself from existing clients with the same line of business?

Speaking Out

Ignacio Bunye considered “gray” (thus, taken for granted) and to provide protocols and penalties for violations and omissions. In a primer circulated among BSP officials and employees, the “No Gift” Policy is explained thus: “The policy prohibits the solicitation, acceptance or receipt of gifts and favors, or anything of value, that can affect/influence the BSP personnel’s performance of official functions, or which may be interpreted as connected, directly or indirectly, to obtaining favorable action/endorsement or any transaction or activity that

is within the scope of the functions of the office. “The prohibition applies at all times, even on occasion of family celebrations, local or national festivities, such as Christmas, or in appreciation of any services rendered.” The BSP Primer gives the rationale: “Along this line, a(ny) situation (that) may give rise to a conflict of interest, any instance of graft and corruption, violation of law, attempt, agreement or promise to do anything in return, attempt to influence the BSP personnel’s action as such, or even the slightest appearance of any of the foregoing that may result in a perception of wrongdoing, must at all times be avoided.” There is an exception to the “No Gift” Policy. “The policy does not cover gifts and favors arising from or out of personal or purely private activities/ transactions that do not have relation/connection to, and will not affect the BSP personnel’s performance of

official functions. “However, for the effective implementation of the policy, the delivery of such personal gifts (e.g. gifts from family, relatives and friends) to the BSP premises, is not allowed.) The BSP primer clearly defines and answers the following: What is considered a “gift”? What are “prohibited gifts”? – “These are gifts that come from any person, bank or institution, which are registered, licensed, accredited, regulated or examined and supervised bythe BSP, including their officers and employees, or from any other interested person. Prohibted gifts shall not be accepted by BSP personnel, anywhere, anytime.” What are “excepted gifts”? – An example would be “items of nominal or insignificant value, which are given as mere tokens of gratitude, goodwill, courtesy or sympathy, according to See bunye, page A11

Mentoring and Coaching Vital Component Instructional Supervision By Pio R. Bagares ES principal III-Cabalantian Elementary School

Research says that teachers who are well-guided by their school leaders are motivated yet inspired to work and will contribute greater accomplishments to improve the school performance. In this light, it is very clear that school leaders should have the ability to guide the teachers so that they will work and move in the direction towards the fulfillment of the school vision and mission. Being the guiding light to the teacher’s it is indeed necessary that they should direct and orchestrate the

institution in the implementation of school programs to better serve the stake holders. In this context school leaders should be equipped with the skills and expertise in instructional supervision to guide the teachers in reaching the learning targets for better school performance. Furthermore, instructional supervision is the process or strategy to facilitate efficiently the teachers’ responsibility entrusted them to attain quality instruction. The inability of the school leaders to implement and supervise the

institution is detrimental in reaching the school mandates. Nevertheless, the successes of the institution to attain its targets lie in the hands of an effective leadership and school governance. On the other hand mentoring and coaching are the approaches to help the teachers in filling-up the gaps for effective and efficient classroom instruction thus to propel them in the direction towards the realization of school vision and mission to better serve the institution. It is in this aspect that school leaders will extend assistance and give inputs to improve

School partners with parents through visitations By Michelle P. Clarin Teacher – I Pinilayan Elementary School

Teachers have more responsibilities aside from teaching students how to count, write or read. More than that, they are assigned to observe the behaviour of students, and from that, strategized a best method on how to instill knowledge and encourage them to appreciate learning. There are times, however, that classroom interaction is not enough to make students appreciate the beauty of knowledge. Students fail, make a

number of absences and more saddening than that, they neglect to go to school again. Thus, it is important that teachers, as school representatives, should conduct home visitations. There are many possible goals for these home visits including: bridging cultural barriers, reporting on academic progress, enlisting parental support to increase academic achievement, and giving parents the tools to do so. This meeting is important because it helps the parent and student become acquainted with the teacher in a non-intimi-

Mindanao hospital receives new eye care equipment DAVAO City--The Southern Philippines and Medical Center (SPMC) received on Tuesday afternoon a brand new retinal camera equipment worth USD $125,000 (approximately PhP 5.25 M) to support the efforts of this medical institution to prevent blindness caused by a condition called retinopathy of prematurity (ROP). The machine is the first of its kind in Mindanao and the fifth outside of Metro Manila. According to the website of the National Eye Institute of the United States, ROP is “a potentially blinding eye disorder

that primarily affects premature infants weighing about 2¾ pounds (1250 grams) or less that are born before 31 weeks of gestation.” Ac c ord i ng to k i d shealth.org, ROP “causes abnormal blood vessels to grow in the retina, the layer of nerve tissue in the eye that enables us to see. This growth can cause the retina to detach from the eye , leading to blindness.” The SPMC was chosen as the recipient because of its efficient eye care facility with trained eye specialists and resident doctors, said Dr. Pearl M.

Dr. Leopoldo Vega, SPMC chief, said the donation will complement the existing equipment of the hospital’s eye care facility, including the two lasers used in treating eye conditions that may result in blindness. Vega thanked Apl de Ap’s Campaign for Filipino Children for choosing SPMC, one of two government hospitals in Mindanao that has an eye care facility. Fil-American rapper Apl de Ap of The Black Eyed Peas, whose real

name is Allan Pineda Lindo, explained that helping visually-impaired children became his advocacy, having suffered from the same eye condition. “It’s a l r e a d y h a r d enough growing up normal in the Philippines but imagine being blind, that’s 10 times hard growing up in the Philippines,” he said. Vega said the new equipment will further improve services to the patients with eye conditions and at the same time harness the skills of resident doctors. “Training and serving must be of the same coin,” he said.

Dr. Abdullah Dumama, director of the Department of Health (DOH) in Region 11, said blindness leads to an enormous human suffering “due to the loss of functional ability and self-esteem and contributes to significant reduction of quality of life and shortens life span.” He said the World Health Organization has projected that the number of visually impaired patients worldwide may reach 76 million by 2020, if interventions are not implemented. “The Philippines is a signatory to the global elimination of avoidable

blindness ‘Vision 2020: The right to sight’,” he said. He said the worldwide campaign is aimed at developing a sustainable comprehensive eye health care system to ensure an improved quality of life by reducing the risk of developing an eye condition, which may result in economic implications that will “manifest in the loss of productivity and income, and also can lead to social dependency.” The DOH, he said, has scaled up its activities on public awareness on the importance of eye care to prevent blindness. . “Capability building activities for eye programs are being conducted and eye health teams are currently being established per province,” he said. Tamesis said 80 percent of the major causes of blindness is preventable. (Antonio L. Colina IV / MindaNews)

US-PH partnership wins inter’l award for promoting sustainable fishing BUTUAN City--The TV White Space partnership won this year’s PublicPrivate Partnership (P3) Impact Award. The TV White Space partnership is an innovative collaboration between the Philippine Department of Agriculture through the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources, the U.S. Embassy Manila’s United States Agency for International Development (USAID), and Microsoft Philippines in New York. The TV White Space Partnership improves the lives of fisherfolks and coastal fisheries management in the Philippines by extending internet access to remote and underserved coastal communities. The

partnership deploys Microsoft’s TV White Space technology, which generates long range wireless internet connectivity by utilizing empty television UHF and VHF broadcast channels. The USAID, Microsoft and the Philippine government connect schools and community centers in six remote municipalities to the internet via TV White Space, benefitting more than 250,000 people. This is the first time this technology has been piloted in the Philippines. “Leveraging publicprivate partnerships is a critical pillar of how USAID operates,” remarked Dr. Susan Brems, USAID Philippines’ Mission Director. “Our work with Microsoft

and the Philippine government demonstrates how innovative partnerships can provide targeted assistance, in this case, to the environment and fisheries sector, as we pursue our shared vision of inclusive

and sustainable growth for Filipinos,” added Brems. The TV White Space partnership also supports a new mobile online system to register fisherfolks in hundreds of rural communities. This system enables

the government to better understand where fishing is taking place. This helps officials better manage precious and threatened fish stocks. The institutional development impacts extend far

beyond the fisheries sector. This is why the Philippines government has incorporated TV White Space as a key element of its universal broadband access strategy. TV White Space hubs also

Raise labor standards in tuna industry GENERAL Santos City--The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) in Region 12 has stepped up its interventions to facilitate the tuna industry players’ compliance with international labor standards. Ofelia Domingo, DOLE Region 12 director, said Wednesday they have been closely monitoring the operations of local tuna companies to ensure that they properly adhere to the general labor standards and related regulations. She said this move is in line with the ongoing assessment by the European Union (EU) on the compliance of tuna companies based in the city to the standards of its Generalized System of Preferences Plus (GSP+). Representatives of the EU delegation to the Philippines earlier inspected several local tuna companies as part of the GSP+ assessment, she said. “We’re mainly assisting the tuna industry in complying with the labor-related standards that were set under the GSP+,” Domingo said. The EU parliament included the Philippines in December last year in its GSP+, which grants zero duty or tariff to over 6,000 eligible exports from the country to its memberstates. The GSP+ status covered processed and canned-tuna products caught by 100-percent Philippine-registered vessels. During the inspection, Domingo said they hosted a roundtable discussion to tackle issues and concerns regarding the industry’s compliance with GSP+ standards. She said the gathering was joined by EU-GSP+ See labor, page A11

This was revealed today by Dorothy Jean B. Pabayo, over-all chairperson of the City Tourism Council, which is spearheading the greening project, after

care of it so that it will truly grow as envisioned by the project proponents. The monitoring scheme will also be explained in the briefing. “The tree-planting activity will not take long. After an hour, all the seedlings will have been planted. But note that what will be planted on Saturday will not just be trees. We are also planting hope and additional opportunities for the communities,” Pabayo emphasized. Pabayo said, “we believe in the need to incorporate the economic and livelihood component of this project to ensure its sustainability. This component can only be carried out with the technical assistance of the Department of Science and Technology, and Philippine Fiber Development Authority (PhilFIDA).” This explains, Pabayo added, the involvement of national line agencies like DOST and PhilFIDA in the project. The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) is in this endeavor to guide the communities in the livelihood component of the project, Pabayo added.

National fisheries stakeholders summit held to combat illegal fishing THE national summit seeks to discuss and discern the salient points in the implementing rules and regulations (IRR) of the recently amended Fisheries Code or Republic Act 10654, which sets stiffer penalties and tightens rules against illegal and unregulated fishing. The two-day Sustainable Fisheries Summit was attended by more than 100 participants from the academe, scientific community, local government units, fisherfolk, and non-government organizations from all over the Philippines. It is the first presentation of the approved

IRR and amended Fisheries code to key fisherfolk and community stakeholders, held at the Institute of Social Order in the Ateneo de Manila University in Quezon City. The summit sought to strengthen the fisheries network for sustainable fisheries management, and emphasized the need for key fisheries stakeholders to understand RA 10654 to effectively enforce the law and monitor its implementation. It also underscored the need to allow the recovery of the Philippine seas from

decades of degradation and overfishing – as the majority of Filipinos are dependent on the sea as a critical source of food and livelihood. For the longest time, illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing (IUUF) wreaked havoc on the onceabundant fishing grounds of the Philippines. A report made by the National Stock Assessment Program of the Department of AgricultureBureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (DABFAR) revealed that 10 out of 13 fishing grounds are already heavily exploited, See summit, page A11

Offer yourself to intercede others The Gospel of Jesus Christ (October23, 2015-Friday) Mark 7:24-30” But after hearing of Him, a woman whose little daughter had an unclean spirit immediately came and fell at His feet. Now the woman was a Gentile, of the Syrophoenician race. And she kept asking Him to cast the demon out of her daughter. And He was saying to her, “Let the children be satisfied first, for it is not good to take the

children’s bread and throw it to the dogs.” But she answered and said to Him, “Yes, Lord, but even the dogs under the table feed on the children’s crumbs.” And He said to her, “Because of this answer go; the demon has gone out of your daughter.” And going back to her home, she found the child lying on the bed, the demon having left: He made in front of the Jews. He told this reality to

open the minds of the Jews that “God’s favors” are also extended to the gentiles and to all children of God on earth. Sometimes, we have the same mentality of the Jews for thinking that we are more capable to receive the favors and graces of God compared to the people around us. This is selfishness and self righteousness. The woman showed her humility in front of Jesus Christ by citing a

dog who can eat even to the children’s’ scraps. Scraps mean wasted or excess foods from the table. She asked excess love from Jesus. She asked even little mercy from Jesus. This was the reason why Jesus helped this woman because “Jesus was touched” by the humbleness of this sinner woman. Remember, sometimes we are also possessed by evil spirits due to our individual ugly attitudes.

Biblical reflection For this, you need to come to Jesus for your healing and deliverance. The mother became the “intercessor” of her child and this is possible with you, offer yourself to intercede others around you for their conversion in life. This is your precious gift for the sinners: Printing paid by: Neneth Ranoa - Bobong Balino- Edith Ranoa, PhDTony Jordan – Cagayan De Oro: My new number:

Effective Leadership Leads for Better Performance By Walter S. Galarroza Head Teacher I-Kanitoan Elementary School

It is a fact that being a leader is not an easy obligation because there are certain aspects are considered since humans are interdependent; humans rely on the other for the sole purpose of survival. There are few that stand above others, who guide the rest through experience, wisdom, and ethics, an exemplary figure worthy of emulation. Besides that, a leader has to know about the human nature and be able to direct people, reducing the group’s doubts about succeeding. Some people believe that a leader is born that way and there is no way, practicing or studying, to create a leader. They are wrong because inside of each and every one of us there is a leader waiting to be wake and holding on an opportunity to come out. To become an effective leader, one should possess some skills in managing people. He should be capable of influencing and inspiring the people around

him to voluntarily commit towards accomplishing a certain goal. A leader needs to appear confidently as a person and in the leadership role so that this person inspires confidence in others and brings out the trust and best efforts of the team to complete their work well. He should be responsible enough, influences people and has a lot of power to move his team and followers. A leader that he is responsible for the team’s achievements. If his team fails, he must have the courage of taking the responsibility for that and should then take steps to solve it. Furthermore, a leader always focuses on the needs of his team, to everyone and every situation they are in. He has the vision where he can able to see into the future and has a clear, exciting idea of where they are going and what they are trying to approach and also he is excellent in strategic plan-

Family: Responsible in nurturing children’s growth and learning By Jennifer P. Paye Teacher – III Sinacaban District

Family is the foundation of every child’s learning. Therefore, it is the parent’s responsibility to build a good learning environment inside their home. It is because how the child view learning inside their home is also the same on how he give importance to his learning even in school. Family is the foundation of each student’s learning for this group of people are the ones he first communicated with. Home is his first school. This is the reason why family has great impact to the learning of the child that would extend to school, once he entered it. It is even encouraged that parents should show support to their children’s learning process. Parental involvement is a plus factor in pushing academic achievements among children. In various researches, it is stated that a child having parents who entice him to do good and supports him during studying

hours at home are more likely to excel in class. It is always better for parents to show interests towards their child’s learning performance in order for a child to realize that his parents value education, and he must do the same as well. Parents involvement as well matters to children’s overall behaviour and attendance during classes. The atmosphere inside a family’s home could also affect the learning ability of the children. For an instance, a harmonious family relationship encourage concentration in their studies for nothing bad can destruct them. On the opposite, a family where conflict resides can affect children’s literacy negatively. At most, this will lessen child’s interest in studying and further raise emotional problems that will break studying concentration. The family relationship, home atmosphere and parental involvement is learning are things that matter most to children’s literacy. Thus, this should be managed well.

ning. Willing to take the risks in the achievement of his goal with no assurance of success because there is no certainty in life, every commitment you make and every action you take entails a risk of some kind. An effective leader exhibits the attitude of humility. It doesn’t mean that being humble implies weakness or being unsure of yourself but it means that you have the self-confidence and self-awareness to recognize the value of others without feeling threatened. It means that you are willing to admit

you could be wrong that you recognize you may not have all the answer. Lastly, an effective leader must have passion of everything that he does and uses his power for the betterment of everyone, not to abuse his power for his own betterment. He passes his guidance to others by not dictating but to motivate, to influence one’s way of mind for the better.

Values Education Above All Sujects Areas By Ly B. Tello Teacher III-Pontacon Elementary School

Filipinos are regarded around the world as people with deeply rooted heritage of values. Only in the Philippines those children and young ones kiss the hands of their elders and most often holding the right hand of the latter and placing in the forehead of the former as sign of great respect. It is highly value tradition that made us famous all over the world and this should be maintained and kept vibrant in the hearts and minds of every generation. Today, as we can see and observed, most of the children are not as respectful as before. When I was in the elementary grades, I considered the table of my teacher as a sacred place in the classroom and

getting closer to it was so scary to me. Every time I see my teacher coming with heavy loads of books and other things, I always ruin in a hurry to extend help. Touching any of my teacher’s belongings was never an option to be made because doing such can be a shameful action. When my teacher took her nap, making any noise was the first thing I should avoid in order not to awaken her. As a public school teacher, how I wished that my present pupils are like me when I was at their age. Children today are ill-mannered and many are disrespectful towards their teachers and elders. Some do not pay attention to their teachers while having a discussion

of a very important topic. Some do not acknowledge the authority of their parents at home. And the worst is the fact that when a teacher or a parent does a kind of discipline, he/she will be considered a culprit of the law. Some are sued and brought to trial even if they have not done wrong against their child o pupil. It is now the best time to strictly impose and give ample time in the teaching of values education in all levels of education in our country. If our new curriculum starts in the kindergarten, then we should likewise start the teaching of values education in kindergarten. Instilling good and godly values in the mind of our children at their early age will not be wasted; instead they will create a lasting memory in

their minds and will leave a lifelong experience in their hearts. In our school activities, we are fond of giving awards and recognition to those children who became math wizards, science enthusiasts, best orators, best declaimers, best story tellers, and best writers but we often neglected in giving awards to children who possessed good values that are worth to emulate. During closing programs, we only give ribbons made of cheap materials to honest, courteous, and obedient children but we give gold and silver medals to honor pupils. Would be it fair? I’m sure it is not. This time is the best time to recognize and consider the Values Education should be above all subject areas.

Audio-Visual Materials: Hasten the Transfer of Learning By Gemma M. Jalagat Master Teacher I-Pagahan Elementary School

Teaching is indeed a very tiring and fatigable but challenging work to do. The life of a teacher is centered in the day to day activities like preparation of the lessons, making instructional materials, discussions, checking papers, recording of scores, and a lot more. The daily cycle of activities seems a very humdrum task to do but none can get away with it because that is what the reality tells. It is a very heroic act for someone who wishes to become a teacher. Once someone becomes a teacher, she dies a teacher and the learning she imparted to her pupils will be her living legacy left to the memory of those she

molded. As a teacher for almost two decades, I had always been bombarded with numerous activities in the classroom and I always ought to do all of those even if at some point I almost surrender. I did not find a big difficulty in conveying ideas and topics clearly to my pupils nor had terrible time in handling them. What bothers me most is the preparation of instructional materials. Although I do not run out of supplies, I still had tough times to prepare my instructional materials. I can write but I am not endowed with good hands that can draw nice pictures, figures, and even simple caricatures. With

this difficulty, I deemed that conveying the ideas to my pupils is affected and hampered. In this fast changing world where technology has overtaken the brilliance of humans, using the usual instructional materials made of cartolinas, manila papers, bond papers, marking pens and crayons is somewhat outmoded. It is time now to conform to the standards of the world. Why settle for the obsolete when there is something new and advanced? Why is use the manila paper if there is DLP? Why use the chalkboards if there is a wide and touch screen monitors? Most of us would want to produce quality and globally competitive learners but sometimes we are in vain. It happens because

we are like a farmer who wanted to have an abundant harvest but did not put enough fertilizers to the crops. We have changed our curriculum and we must also change our materials and resources so that we can produce learners with quality learning. Our new curriculum is patterned from the other countries but we did not pattern including how these countries had responded to the needs of their learners and teachers. As a country with struggling but surviving economy, we should now take immediate action to provide audio-visual materials to all teachers in all schools of the country to hasten the transfer of learning.

When a 7.2 magnitude earthquake struck Bohol Province in October 2013, TV White Space was the only means of communication when mobile phone service went down, helping relief workers coordinate their work and survivors to contact loved ones. The partnership was forged out of USAID’s fiveyear Ecosystems Improved for Sustainable Fisheries (ECOFISH) project. Launched in 2012, USAID’s ECOFISH project protects biological diversity and boosts livelihoods in eight key marine biodiversity areas throughout the Philippines, including Lingayen Gulf, Verde Island Passage, Calamianes Island Group, Ticao-San Bernardino-Lagonoy Gulf, Danajon Reef, South Negros Island, Surigao del Sur and del Norte, and Sulu Archipelago. Concordia, the University of Virginia Darden School of Business Institute for Business in Society, and the U.S. Department of State Secretary’s Office of Global Partnerships created the P3 Impact Award to recognize public-private partnerships that are changing our world in innovative and impactful ways. The P3 Award was announced at the Concordia Summit in New York City on October 2, 2015. Vice President Joe Biden attended the Summit, and Secretary of State John Kerry offered his congratulations to the Government of the Philippines, USAID, and Microsoft for their tremendous impact in improving livelihoods and supporting sustainable fisheries management in the country.

There is also budol-budol scam in which the scammer will attract victim’s trust through offering him bundles of fake money, then ask for his important things in exchange. Dugo-dugo scam also exist. In here, victim receives a call from someone that a loved one has been kidnapped or has been hurt and will tell him to make money transfer. There are also other scamming techniques such as ponzi or pyramiding scheme, spurious investments, identity theft, phishing, spoofing, and nigerian scams. These are harmful scamming techniques that BSP wants to aware Filipinos, mainly through this exhibit. Moreover, ‘AlertoAko’ also features interactive games and activities, audio visual presentations on financial products, warning signs and consumer protection. The BSP will put up the exhibit across different parts of the country to disseminate the information, educate financial consumers and remind them to be vigilant against financial fraud and scams.

A daughter of a farmer, Angel disclosed that the income of her parents is not sufficient to support her daily fare in going to her school, Aloran Trade High School, from her house, that’s why she volunteered herself to become a working student to one of her relatives living near the school. Angel’s residence is relatively far from the school and she would spend P30 a day for her fare before. But, Angel is quick to add that she managed to balance her studies and household chores. A consistent Top 1 pupil from Grade 1 to Grade 6 during her elementary formation; Angel has never been absent from school despite her obligations as a working student. “I persevere to achieve my dreams and to become successful in the future,” Angel said during her first radio interview in a local station here. Good example to others When asked about her passion, Angel disclosed that she wants to become good example to others. “I want to be different from others in a good way because I know, I am unique. I want to become a good example to others,” Angel said. Serving as the newly ambassador of children’s rights in Northern Mindanao, Angel is overwhelmed by the support from her family, school administrators, local government unit, and other stakeholders of Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program in Misamis Occidental. “It’s worth the hardwork and diligence that I have invested. I owed back this to Pantawid Pamilya, my mentors, my family, my friends and to my God,” Angel said, adding that she is a proud beneficiary of Pantawid Pamilya. Changes in life Everday, Angel’s father, Rey, will visit and cultivate the family’s ricefields while her mother Mariter will take care of her and her elder sister. Either under the heat of the scorching heat of the sun or under a heavy downpour, Angel’s father has to work hard to support the family’s need. “Honestly, every afternoon when I got home from school in my elementary years, I can see from my naked eyes that my father is really tired from work. I felt guilty of it,” shared Angel during the radio interview.

“Sad to say, his income is not enough for my needs. At that moment, I was losing hope to finish my studies. Until such time when we became a beneficiary of Pantawid Pamilya,” added the teary-eyed Angel. Angel’s family became benefiary of the program in 2011. “Pantawid Pamilya is a great help to my family. I can already buy the materials and supplies needed for my projects on time. Because of Pantawid Pamilya, I achieved good grades and I maintain my top post,”said Angel. Aside from that, Angel told us that, “Pantawid helped educate my parents and other beneficiaries in terms of livelihood, halth and wellness, education for children and many others.” As it is, “I am always been grateful to DSWD and all other government agencies which helped us fight poverty.” Meanwhile, Rosa Bianca Galos of Mambajao, Camiguin and Regine Dablo of Lagonglong, Misamis Oriental have earned the second and third spots, respectively. The contender were judged based on their behavior and practice, talent, intelligence and wit, community and school participation, and Kaya Koa ng Pagbabago (I am capable of change) presence and appearance. The search is conducted to recognize the children beneficiaries of the program who set examples at home, in school, and in their community. It is one of the strategies of Pantawid Pamilya to encourage the children to nurture habits and values that would mold them to good and active citizens.

Del Rosario’s beer which he named as Fat Pauly has developed a following in their locality in Iligan City. He started with five gallons per day in 2010. In 2013, the production rose to 20 and continues to increase. “The product is doing good and is being sold in Iloilo, Iligan, Cagayan de Oro, Bukidnon, Davao, Manila and even in Boracay,” he said. The volume is not yet that big but orders come regularly, he added. Del Rosario said his Fat Pauly also earned the interest of foreigners here like Americans, Germans, Italians and other Asian nationals. He found a partner who handles the marketing and distribution of his products in Davao City. US national Thomas Cirineo from Seattle traveled to Iligan City a year ago to personally see the production process. He happened to find the product online. Cirineo, who believes in the product, regularly supplies selected restaurants in Davao City and even expanded the distribution to other neighboring cities. Del Rosario said that what is special about the product is that it has natural ingredients. The yeast, which is a basic ingredient, is sourced abroad. “I buy a particular yeast brand in Belgium and Ger-

many,” Del Rosario said. Other than yeast, the natural ingredients are supplied by farmers in the locality. Cirineo said their brewing carries an advocacy of supporting small farmers. The alternative beer is infused with local flavors like wild pukyutan or honey, mangrove barks, wild tuba yeast strain, biasong or Philippine limje, kulikot chillies, strawberries from Bukidnon and also the Malagos chocolate from Davao. Del Rosario disclosed that in the next five years, they aim to produce about 500 gallons. Incidentally, Del Rosario also belongs to the family that popularized the sukang “Pinakurat.” Like the beer, which uses yeast strain from tuba (taken from coconut), the Pinakurat uses tuba vinegar. Del Rosario, who is the executive vice president for marketing of the family corporation, said there are about a hundred tuba gatherers that supply them local vinegar regularly. This is our way of helping the “manangiti” or tuba gatherer and also the coconut farmers, he said. The making of Pinakurat vinegar also infuses several spices that are supplied by farmers in the area. He admitted that it was not easy for their vinegar product to enter the market but they had it promoted by joining exhibits and fairs organized by government and private sector. The break came when the product formed part of a Christmas basket giveaways. It was then that orders by volume followed. It was in 2004 when the family, with their little money of P20,000 ventured on the seasoned vinegar that his father concocted, Del Rosario shared. Pinakurat vinegar could now be found everywhere and became a known brand even as Del Rosario said “I think the product hit the Filipino palate that is why it became popular.” He said the product has already penetrated international markets through consolidators like the US, Europe, Canada, Australia, Africa, and other Asian countries.

from page A8 representatives, civil society organizations and industry players. Among the issues tackled were the labor dispute between union workers and the management of tuna firm Citra Mina, labor contractualization, and the impending implementation of the proposed rules and regulations governing the working and living conditions in the fishing industry. Domingo said the EU delegation led by its GSP unit’s deputy head, Nikos Zaimis, stressed the need for continuing dialogues to address the pending labor issues within the industry. “That’s what we’ve been doing right with the Citra Mina issue. There are ongoing talks under our single-entry approach to resolve the matter,” she said. DOLE is currently crafting a proposed joint department

order to lay down the government’s labor-related policies, programs and other interventions concerning fishing companies. Domingo said the joint department order specifically sets the “rules and regulations governing the employment and working conditions of fishers employed in fishing vessels engaged in commercial fishing operation.” “It aims to harmonize laws and regulations in giving decent work to fishermen and ease doing business with the fishing industry,” she said. The city, which is home to six of the country’s tuna canneries, is dubbed the “Tuna Capital of the Philippines.” The industry generates annual export receipts of around US$ 350 million and directly employs about 20,000 workers.

Summit...

from page A8 leading to the phenomenal decline of fish catch. Simultaneously, the income of municipal fishers also declined, with the highest poverty incidence level among fisherfolk at 39.1 percent. Municipal fishers have long clamored for the amendment of the Fisheries Code, in response to the prevailing illegal and unregulated fishing practices to the Philippine seas. The passage of RA 10654 aims to address IUUF by increasing the penalties against illegal and unregulated fishing. It also strengthens the vessel monitoring mechanisms and calls for the creation of harvest control rules to determine sustainable fish catch levels. RA 10654 revised significant provisions leading to institutionalization and further strengthening of the following: (1) traceability, which ensures that fishery products are sourced out from healthy fishing grounds and which used sustainable fishing practices, and handling of fish catch meet acceptable standards; (2) reference points, which determines the maximum sustainable yield for fishing; and (3) harvest control rules, which sets the regulations on the use of fishing gears, fish catch limitations, spatial and temporal restrictions, among others. These provisions shall primarily lead to the establishment of a sustainable fisheries regime beyond the 15-kilometer municipal waters, the exclusive economic zones and in high seas. The summit also launched PaNaGaT (Pangisda Natin Gawing Tama), the largest Philippine network of conservationist and Community-Based Coastal Resources Management (CBCRM) practitioners, to combat IUUF.
