‘Bambi’ hopeful on approval of P2 billion 2016 budget of Misor By CRIS DIAZ, Executive editor

MISAMIS Oriental--Governor Yevgeny Vincente Emano has expressed the optimism that the provincial board would approve the proposed P2 billion budget for 2016. “It is a lean budget: An honest reflection of what the province can afford without sacrificing basic services,” Emano said. He said that the Local Government Code mandates that the last day for the submission of the proposed budget is

every October 16 of the year. Called the “executive budget” until approved by the legislative body of the province, it has a total appropriation of some P2,031,553,096, Emano said. He said that the top five budgetary allocations are still on the priority programs that include infrastructure development, economic enhancement programs, health and social services, staff development and livelihood promotion programs.

mission and attainment of continuous success. “OIC is one of the best cooperatives in the country,” said the Chairperson Ravanera, who also explained that Cooperativism has done so much to advance the welfare of Filipino people. In fact, cooperatives including OIC have employed more than 550,000 people. “What is amazing is the indirect employment,” he added. Cooperatives generated indirect employment and has caused 2 million individuals to do small businesses. Ravanera cited a typical mother, who instead of staying at home, runs an eatery through the help of a cooperative institution, even as she gains income, and pays taxes. Even more, this individual help and contribute in generating employment by hiring waiters, cooks, cashiers and several other workers. “I do believe that in a country where people

are marginalized, they have to be put into the concept of development processes. That is cooperativism,” he said, adding that people - the lumads, farmers, fishermen, women groups, and even persons with disabilities - should have this cooperativism. Through coops, people are awakened to really make a difference, especially in this country that the trend is “the rich becomes richer and poor becomes poorer,” and, so, cooperative’s role is to equalize this trend. Alongside 50th year celebration of Oro Integrated Coop, October 2015 is also Cooperative Month. It will conclude on October 23, at Philippine Trade Center. Aside from that, coop sector is also celebrating the Philippine Cooperative Centennial Year, 100 years after the first cooperative law was enacted by US Colonial government. “We have so many things to celebrate upon,” Ravanera ended.

Bantula Awards 2015 By DELIA B. CAÑADILLA, Master Teacher I San Vicente Elementary School Baungon District

I’M so humbled and honored to be chosen as an Awardee for Most Outstanding Master Teacher Intermediate Level in our yearly Bantula Awards 2015 in our school district of Baungon here in the province of Bukidnon. Yet it is a privilege that I credit much to the hundreds of students that I have honed for my entire career. I firmly believe that I own them my deepest gratitude. If they are now successful high school and college students and some of the older alumni are already working, it means they have instilled in their minds the education that they have received when they were still under my care. Being a master teacher isn’t hard. But it isn’t easy either. At the end of the day, I can sigh and reflect proudly that I have given my best to educate my students who will become responsible adults in their generation. That is what makes me joyous beyond receiving this award. I also thank my Department of Education (DepEd) family for rendering me all the logistical and moral support that I could do my job well as a master teacher so I can supervise my subordinate teachers and guide them on how best to impart the K to 12 curriculum to their students. I would like to specially mention the names of the jurors of Bantula Awards 2015 – Division office representative Dr. Artemio Rey S. Adajar, EPS; LGU representative Miss Tagocon and district supervisor Dr. Lelanie T. Combate. I would also like to give credence to our school principal, Julito M. Cañadilla.

Awardee for Most Outstanding Master Teacher Intermediate Level, Ms. DELIA B. CAÑADILLA.

I would also like to congratulate all the awardees in the rest of the 11 categories – from kindergarten to Grades 1 to 6 and my equally esteemed counterpart outstanding master teachers in the primary and intermediate levels. This yearly event is being evaluated by the school administrators and we teachers are judged based on the given checklist of tools. The district evaluation was done from September 29 to October 6. The final awarding night was done on October 20 at Hotel Conchita. Lastly, I hope I can humbly inspire my fellow teachers not just in the public sector but those who are practicing privately as well. God bless!

The real competition THINK a minute. Did you have to compete with someone else to get the girl or guy you wanted? Whether we like it or not, competition is part of life. Usually there are other people besides you who want that job, scholarship, business, or title. But some people will stop at nothing to win. Whether it’s lying, cheating, or gossiping and destroying someone’s reputation. Yet when we compete only to win and beat the other person, it not only makes us bad losers, but also bad winners. That kind of competing produces a person with a bad heart and character, with self-centered greed, pride, and envy. An important lesson in life is to learn to compete only against yourself. Then,

“Trespassing is okay, if the boundaries you cross are your own!” whether you win or lose against others, you still win! Because all the time and effort you spent to work and improve only makes you a better person who’s closer to reaching your potential. As one guy put it: “Trespassing is okay, if the boundaries you cross are your own!” So when we set good, important goals for ourselves, they work in two ways: we work on them, and they work with us. The real test of your success is whether you’re a better person than you

were yesterday? Is your attitudes and character better? Are you a better husband or wife? A better father or mother? A better worker? You know, we can compete and win in our career and making money, but if we lose our good character by being dishonest or hurting and using others, then we’ve lost the real competition and what’s important. The real measure of success is not what you HAVE, but what you ARE as a person. What kind of heart and

Fraudulent poll system in 2016

RP POLITICIANS RUNNING FOR MONEY: Why are there so many Filipinos want to run for political office? It is because of the opportunity to get rich, for the upstarts, and to get richer for those who are already financially well-off. There is simply too much money in government, so that even those who ran, wanting to serve initially inevitably find themselves unable to resist the temptation and allure of bribes offered by unscrupulous businessmen for big government projects once they get elected. And many Filipinos are fake and spurious Christians---or Christians only in words and not in deeds and in motivations---it is easy for anyone wanting politicians to do something for them to prod those politicians to act one way or the other. Unless Filipinos become true and sincere Christian believers, therefore, our country will remain led by the corrupt, by the plunderers, and by the abusive. -oooFRAUDULENT POLL SYSTEM IN 2016: Will someone please tell me why no one seems able to compel the Commission on Elections to return the safety features of the computer machines our country is going to use for the 2016 presidential elections? More importantly, can

anyone tell me why the Comelec can afford to brazen it out in its refusal to return those safety features? Undeniably, with the computer system now in place for the 2016 elections--which was the very system that was used in installing President Benigno Aquino III in 2010 and in proclaiming his senatorial candidates as 60% victors in the 2013 mid-term elections--there is absolutely no way for voters to know whether their votes were counted or not. Surely, this system is a fool-proof recipe for poll fraud and cheating, because no one---not even the candidates themselves--can have proof of who the people voted for. Everyone will have to simply accept what the Comelec will say. This makes me wonder why no candidate---especially those running for the presidency---is doing something about this. -oooWHO IS BEHIND REMOVAL OF PCOS SAFETY FEATURES? The case of former San Jose City, Bulacan mayor and congressman Lito Sarmiento, who died just recently while testifying in court against the computer cheating, which he said deprived him even of his own vote in his own polling precinct in 2013, is a case in point. Since Sarmiento did not

This is the fraudulent system this present Comelec is going to use again in 2016. This is the kind of cheating, which all Filipino voters should expect from this Comelec all over again.

BOC-10 seizes P5-million worth of sodium cyanide Bukidnon • Camiguin • Lanao del Norte • Lanao del Sur • Misamis Occidental • Misamis Oriental

By GERRY LEE GORIT Correspondent

TAGOLOAN, Misamis Oriental--The Bureau of Customs (BOC) in Region 10 seized a total of 35 tons of Sodium Cyanide worth millions of pesos due to lack of import permits, for being undervalued and for misdeclaration of quantity. Prior to the confiscation, Bureau of Customs-Intelligence Group (IG) Deputy Commissioner Jessie Dellosa issued last July 3 Alert Order No. 20150703-101 against said importation with Korea as the port of origin. BOC-10 Intelligence Officer II Alvin Y. Enciso said two container vans were initially seized, but the consignee appeared to have two more container vans coming, bringing to four the total number of container vans now being seized by the BOC at the

Mindanao Container Terminal in Tagoloan town, Misamis Oriental. Enciso said a warrant of seizure has been issued by Atty. Ruby Claudia Alameda, acting district collector, against the release of the container vans with Sodium Cyanide to the consignee, Central Combal Mining Supply Corp., which arrived at the MCT-Sub-Port on July 2, 2015, on board the Asia Ipsa V. 015, covered by Bill of Lading No. APLU 011229519 and declared under Import Entry No. C-5277-15. “We were suspicious because the importation permit that was given to the consignee, Central Combal Mining Supply Corp., came from the Environmental Management Bureau (EMB) based in Region 4 when the importation is here in Region 10,” Enciso said. Enciso said the MGB10 here, itself, said that

the importation permit is void, because it is the office in this region that should release the permit to the consignee. A few weeks later, the EMB-10 issued a permit, but the BOC, according to Enciso is contesting it since, on the first place, the items arrived the MCT Sub-Port with without a permit. Enciso also said the imported items were clearly misdeclared by the consignee, placing the amount of their items at P570,000. But per verification with the Imports and Assessment Service of the BOC and other similar importation in other regions, the items was supposed to to be at P4 to P5 million. The Import and Assessment Service placed the proper valuation of the items seized at US$2.08/kg. Enciso also cited the violation on “under valuation,” which over the limit of 30

percent which is seizurable. Enciso said they are recommending for the automatic forfeiture of the items since it is grossly under valued.

The IG reported that per verification of the consignee, identified as Man Hoon Park, is operating Cyanide sale within the Davao-Cagayan de Oro

Managing communication barrier through MTB-MLE By Jennifer B. Paye Teacher – III Sinacaban District

Communication barrier is one of the problems that hinder successful learning. It is because what the sender has sent, the receiver has not received. There are interruptions in between that blocked successful flow of the message. Such communication barrier can happen in the classroom. Meaning, not all the time that pupils could understand what the teacher is discussing. Most of the time, this failure to achieve understanding of lessons is due to various barriers caused by physical noise or even the person himself. Moreover, what is common, is the communication barrier caused by misinterpretation or the impossibility to understand medium used. Learning and interpreting the language is basic in order for a person to understand and critically analyze a statement. The same to students, they would not be able to comprehend a reading,

solve a mathematical problem or analyze a scientific theory sans learning basic language. This is the reason why Mother Tongue-Based Multilingual Education (MTB-MLE) has put into realization. Department has recognized that most, if not all, children in early levels know how to speak English, and for nonFilipino official language users, speaking Filipino is even a challenge. MTB-MLE is a policy under K to 12 Basic Education program that involves implementation of local mother tongue as the language of instruction in kindergarten to grade three. In other words, the teacher uses local dialect in her discussions in order for pupils to understand the content. This helps the pupils learn to speak in Filipino and English which are used in the higher grades. Through MTB-MLE, there is common understanding of lessons and thus, improved education is achievable.

Alinsunod sa mga tadhana ng batas at bilang ang Kongreso ay maaaring naniniwala angkop, ang Pamahalaan ay gagawa ng mga hakbang upang simulan at itaguyod ang paggamit ng Filipino bilang medium ng opisyal na komunikasyon at bilang wika ng pagtuturo sa sistema ng edukasyon. Isipin natin ang sinabi n gating pambansang bayani “ Ang hindi magmahal sa kanyang wika ay mabaho pa sa malansang isda”. -Jose Rizal Sinasabing ang wika ang syang responsabli sa pagkakaboklod ng mga mamayan sa isang bansa. Ang wika rin ang syang insturumento upang magkaintindihan ang mga tao, ang wika rin ang syang rumerep-

resenta sa kultura ng isang bansa . Sa Pilipinas ang ating wikang pambansa ay ang wikang Filipino. Maraming mga tao ang ikinahihiya ang kanilang wika. Mahalaga ang wika upang tayo ay mag-kaisa. Dugo at pawis ang ginogul ng ating mga bayani upang makamit natin ang ating kalayaan ng bansang pilipinas. Upang magkaroon ng sariling wika na tatatak sa kasaysayan at magiging wika magpakailann man. Wika ang syang dahilan bakit tayo nagkakaintindihan, bakit tayo may edukasyon iyan ay dahil sa wika tayo’y uunlad sa pamamagitan ng ating wika. Tayo’y hindi magkakaintindihan kung wala ang wikang Filipino kagaya ng mga amerkano hindi natin sila maiintindihan kung wala ang wikang Inglees. Wikang Filipino ay sagisag ng ating kultura na atin pang minana sa ating mga kanu-nunoan na dapat nating pahalagahan, pagyamanin at pag ingatan. Wag nating ikahiya kung ano tayo. Tayo’y mga Filipino wag natin ikahiya ang ating wika dahil para narin nating ikinahiya ang ating bansa. Dahil ang ating wika ay

Grand Winner Christian Lacsa for Pedia Category Christian Lacsa

More than 2,000 young people submitted their entries in the hopes of sharing their stories to inspire other young asthmatics not to let asthma take control of their lives. “We decided to target this particular age group because Asthma is a common chronic disease of childhood leading to reduced activity, school absences, ER visits and hospitalizations, says Dr. Gio Barangan, GSK Medical Director. “It is also during this stage that young people are in the process of developing the necessary knowledge and skills that will enable them to achieve their goals in life, as such we want to let them know that Asthma should not deter them from realizing their full potential,” Baranganadded. In the youth category of 19 years old and below, Christian Lacza, a student from Navotas City was judged as the grand prize winner. Christian is one of the 2014 Kabayan Ten Outstanding Public School Students, and 2014 Ten Outstanding Youth Leaders of Navotas City. He also was an awardee of the 2010 GawadHuwarangKabataan of the AntolinOreta Sr. Foundation and GawadModelongKabataan: Galing at Dangal ng Malabon of the Arnold Vicencio Foundation. He is also the youngest recipient of the Orator of the Year Award in Navotas National High School. “When I was young, my asthma attacks were so severe that my mother would have to bring me to the

GSK Executives with the Winners Against Asthma Adult Category. hospital almost weekly. This made me realize that if I cannot excel in physical activities, I have to discover and focus on my other strengths,” says Christian. “Going to my pediatrician was a constant necessity, and she made sure I get the proper medication and treatment, but more than she never failed to cheer me up and would always give me words of encouragement whenever I visited her.” “Instead of letting asthma stop me I stopped asthma from interfering with my life as I pushed myself as a holistic learner-- excelling in academics, student leadership and in various competitions.” The runner up winners in the youth category are 15-year old student and dancer Christina Chua; taekwondo twins Andre Rafael and Anton Joachim Montero; consistent student scholar

Kenneth Angelo Bagay and Dave Andre Labaton who is also a taekwondo medalist. In the adult category, incoming third year medical student Teesha Banta was judged as the winner. The 23-year old student from St. Luke’s College of Medicine, was a full scholar in her first two years of med school and graduated Cum Laude from University of the Philippines Los Banos with the degree of BS Biology Major in Wildlife Biology. She is a lifetime member in two international honor societies but besides her academic achievements, she is also actively involved in community service. As an active Girl Scout, Teesha received two of the highest awards given by the organization-- the Chief Girl Scout Medal and is one the 75 GSP National Young Awardees. She had represented the country in national and international events, specifically as an advocate and a National Peer Educator on Adolescent Female Health. “Asthma runs in our family but symptoms of severe asthma began when I was in college, which, unfortunately, was also the time when I was so involved in my schoolwork and scouting. My mother, who is a doctor and is also an asthmatic, helped me through most of my journey by taking care of me and reminding me to ‘ take my medicines. Actually, because of my asthma, I had to temporarily stop med school because bed rest was advised. But it did not stop me from taking a part-time job as a high school Science teacher. Besides being a doctor, teaching was my second dream job, Teesha narrates. “Every time I have my asthma attacks, the only thing on my mind is to get well so I could go back to studying and become a doctor to prove that asthma should not stop you from pursuing your dreams.” Teesha said she plans wants to specialize in Pediatric Pulmonology so she could treat asthmatic children. Her message to other asthmatics? “During our many asthma attacks, we may feel powerless and helpless. We do not have the strength that non-asthmatics have and it may feel like it is the end of our dreams, I had that feeling when I had to temporarily stop med school because of my asthma. Well, these are all lies. Our condition is but another challenge that adds more meaning to each of our achievements, an opportunity to push harder, aim higher, and be better persons and citizens of our country. Perhaps we were given this condition because we have the ability to turn these “setbacks” into “set-ups” of better things to come. We can defeat asthma and we can

conquer our dreams!” The other winners in the adult category are UP student IannaEngaño an athlete, musician, artist and social activist; Yasmin Versoza a firefighter and member of the Marikina City Fire Truck crew; Christianne de Vera a triathlete; and Yliah Nina Bosch a registered nurse who is working as an Emergency Nurse Responder at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport. Criteria for Winners The SWAA is open to all Filipino citizens or foreigner with a permanent Philippine address that have been diagnosed as asthmatic by a qualified physician. The winners were divided into two categories: Category A (Youth Category) for below 19 years old and Category B (Adult Category) for 20 years old and above. Applicants can choose to share how they have won against asthma. These may be in various fields including Arts, Academics, Career, and Sports. Applicants were also required to answer the question: How did you Win Against Asthma? The screening committee then used the following criteria for each entry Excellence in their Field or Category 50% Evidence of winning over asthma 30% Online Votes 20% The winners will be given the following prizes: Huawei P7 Smart Phone; Five Thousand (PhP5,000) worth of GCs from Folded & Hung and Twenty Five Thousand (PhP25,000) worth of Sodexo gift certificates. “A lot of asthma patients have accepted lifestyle restrictions resulting from uncontrolled asthma as the norm, assuming that frequent symptoms, exacerbations and lifestyle limitations are an inevitable consequence of having asthma. With the Search for Winners Against Asthma campaign, we hope to encourage and inspire more young people to live their lives to the fullest and not let asthma prevent them from doing the things they love.” Dr. Baranganalso credits actress Kim Chiu and International Rock superstar Arnel Pineda for helping them spread awareness of their campaign. “Kim, Arnel and Michael are asthmatics who have proven not only to themselves but to the entire world that they can take control of their condition and never let their asthma stop them from following their dreams and achieving success in their very competitive careers,” Barangan added.

NPCO bares okay of P11.3B rural development projects By FRETCHER MAGATAO

NASIPIT, Agusan del Norte--The National Project Coordination Of f i c e (NPC O) announced that of the P26.7 billion worth of Intensified Building Up of Infrastructure and Logistics for Development (I-BUILD) subprojects in the pipeline, P11.3 billion.worth of 190 subprojects has been approved. The announcement was made during the Philippine

Rural Development Project I-BUILD Component 7th Assessment and Coordination Meeting in Barangay Amontay, Nasipit here on October 13-16, 2015. As of October 9, the cluster performance for Luzon A showed approved 2 2 su bproj e c t s wor t h P2,099,281,o97.39, Luzon B with 30 subprojects amounting to P2,224,089.72, Visayas got P1,932,571,008.94 for 25 subprojects, and Mindanao cluster with a total of 113 subprojects amounting to P5,113,112,803.26. Of the 190 approved subprojects, 69 are already implemented

the bulk of which are in Mindanao. “I-BUILD is near the target of the approved budget for subprojects nationwide. We understand that there are a lot of project proposals from the local government units (LGUs) that need to be approved. Still, thorough deliberation in line with the necessary requirements is undertaken before a project is approved,” said PSO Mindanao Deputy Program Director Consolacion Satorre. The four-day activity provided an avenue among I-BUILD Components from

all project clusters to assess the components’ performance in connection with their physical and financial targets. This ensures that the components’ milestones are closely monitored and crucial issues and concerns are appropriately resolved. “Here, we share all our concerns and the problems we encountered in the field,” said NPCO Alternate IBUILD Head Engr. Ericson Mammag. He added that an IBUILD component in every Regional Project Coordination Office (RPCO) should maximize its human

THE RIGHT TURN By HOMER B. CAMBANGAY Teacher I – Imbayao Elementary School

I never dream of becoming a teacher, I never did. At young age, I have witnessed and experienced the sacrifices of my teachers travelling several kilometers from the city to teach in our barrio. Yet, despite all the hardships I have seen and observed they have been through, I never heard them complain about their job, and instead, what I have seen in them was peace and satisfaction. I end up taking elementary education in college not for any other reason but was left with no other options because I cannot proceed with my dream of becoming an electronics engineer since

no school in the province offer the course and my scholarship grant is only good if I will study within the province. After four years of struggle and maintaining the cut off grade of our scholarship, I graduated from the course. I was thankful I was hired as teacher in our barangay a year after my graduation. It was then during this time that I deeply understand the true meaning of teaching; that indeed, teaching is not a profession but a vocation. Our sacrifices cannot be paid by the salary we receive every month nor by the bonuses we are entitled with each year; these can be remunerated

by the success of pupils we were teaching with. No wonder how happy my teachers were when they knew that I took up education and graduated, more so when I become one of their colleagues. Now that I am a teacher, I also teach my pupils the good values and virtues I have learned from my teachers before and impart with them the knowledge necessary to compete in this fast-paced world. I am not weary to continue carrying out my mission; to liberate learners from ignorance, build their hopes by giving them power to reform their lives through quality education that I am teaching and become productive members of the society. The right turn.

Cebu Pacific adopts PH Eagle ‘Mindanao’ Editorial: e-mail: mindanaodailynews@gmail.com • Advertising: e-mail: mindanaodaily.ads@gmail.com Contact: 0917-7121424, 0947-8935776

THE Philippine Eagle is considered as one of the most remarkable bird species in the world, for its ferocity, grace, and unparalleled beauty. It is a vertebrate of the highest class, with the size and wing span that provide the lethal mobility of an extraordinar y winged predator. This raptor adapts well in dense, lush flora, making it the perfect fit for the Philippines’ tropical climate. But as it is endemic to the rainforests of the Philippines, its existence is gravely affected by natural habitat loss and hunting. Sadly, only 400 pairs remain, making it one of the most endangered species in the world today. One such eagle is “Mindanao,” the Philippine Eagle ambassador for education. From the day he was hatched, he, along with 17 other Philippine eagles, has been under the care of the Philippine Eagle Foundation (PEF) through a captive breeding program—a system that breeds and re-introduces raptors to their natural habitat in the efforts to augment the dwindling wild population. Over the years, 13-yearold “Mindanao” has inspired both locals and visitors of the Philippine Eagle Center in Davao to learn more about its kind. “Mindanao” has helped raise awareness about the delicate situation the eagles are in,

ANOTHER COAL PLANT IN MISOR. Aerial view of the FDC Misamis Oriental coal fired power plant now under construction at the Phividec Industrial Estate in Villanueva town in Misamis Oriental. The plant will have a total capacity of 405 megawatts with three units of 135MW each circulating fluidized bed coal-fired thermal power plant. Contributed photo as well as PEF’s mission to advocate for its survival and the sustainable use of forest resources towards a better future habitat. But the call for combined efforts to help preserve the life of these majestic creatures remains. Aside from being aware of the current, long-standing obstacles the Philippine eagles face, every Juan can do more. Starting October 15, 2015,Cebu Pacific, the country’s leading airline, takes Philippine Eagle “Mindanao”under its wing.

The adoption of “Mindanao” strengthens the airline’s commitment to act on environmental conservation issues that are greatly linked to the country’s rich biodiversity. For five years, Cebu Pacific will provide food and necessary veterinary care that will help flourish and sustain the well-being of “Mindanao” as one of the country’s prominent national symbols. “The Philippine Eagle is a significant part of our country’s thriving ecosystem. We encourage every-

one to help preserve this national icon until they can fly freely, without threat, in their natural habitats,” said Cebu Pacific President and CEO Lance Gokongwei. Through this partnership, Cebu Pacific directly supports PEF’s Conservation Breeding and Conservation Education initiatives that prevent the complete extinction of such species. It also provides a helping hand to further accelerate the Captive Breeding program of PEF, as well as raise awareness about the plight of the Philippine Eagle.

This initiative supplements Cebu Pacific’s other long-term commitment to the environment, the Bright Skies for EveryJuancampaign. In place since 2008,this climate adaptation program,in partnership with the World Wide Fund for Nature – Philippines, benefits the country’s two great reefs – the Tubbataha and Apo Reefs.

DAVAO City--The City Government of Davao is the country’s sole recipient of a biodiesel project from the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) that will convert used cooking oil to fuel, an official said on Monday. L a w y e r Tr i s t a n Dwight Domingo, assistant city administrator, said during the Kapehan sa Dabaw at SM City Davao that they are now in the stage of gathering data on the project’s viability, including the volume of used cooking oil that can be gathered from households and business establishments in the city. After two meetings, representatives from JICA and its private partner, Biomass Japan, the manufacturer of the technology, are set to visit this city to meet with city officials on November See diesel, page A13

If anything other than inflation and joblessness has gone up in this country, it is the level of dementia afflicting our body politic. True, making preposterous marital claims holds no significance for the May 2016 political exercise and to our collective future. Ms Kris has had lost count of marital problems that have come her way that another one thrown at her feet will no longer bother her or her legions of fans and bashers. And multiplying our seasons won’t make a dent either on the impact of climate change that has beleaguered us in recent years. The tragedy, however, doesn’t end with the outlandish agenda of the socalled nuisance candidates; even the supposedly sane among those who wish to become president can hardly go beyond parenthood declarations of what they intend to do. Indeed, it’s all been hot air, openended generalizations and enumeration of recycled promises that don’t sum up into a comprehensive and coherent policy platform. The only edge these candidates have over the rest is the certainty that they would breeze through any psychiatric screening. Beyond this, it is already difficult to spot the difference between the “sane” candidates and those whose statements dwell on the absurd. The latter promise us things that we know are impossible, the former things that we know they

The latter give us comic relief, the former promises that will be heard again in the next political season. We laugh at the weirdness of it all not knowing we are looking at the image in the mirror before us. This is desperation. No, this is madness. (MindaViews is the opinion section of MindaNews. H.

to induce condensation, and eventually, precipitation. Moisture collects around these “nuclei” and, upon reaching a certain saturation level, falls as rain. According to Bureau of Soils and Water Management (BSWM) Director Silvino Tejada, the Department has conducted cloud seeding operations in strategic locations nationwide since last year. In addition, “[the department] has set up water management and conservation measures through its BSWM and regional field offices to ensure that scarce irrigation water supply will be efficiently used and maximized,” Tejada said. The DA has also released drought-tolerant rice varieties in threatened riceproducing areas. For long-term adaptation measures, the department has improved the country’s small-scale irrigation systems to make these more resilient to the effects of extreme weather and other calamities. It has also promoted climate-and disastersmart farming and fishery technologies to cushion the agro-fishery sector against the negative effects of calamities. While the DA and other government agencies have put in place programs to address the challenges of El Niño, the Agriculture Secretar y stressed that adapting to the effects of this extreme climatic condition, considered to be the worst in 65 years, is a shared responsibility among Filipinos. The Secretary dispelled fears that crops cannot be grown during the El Niño, and cited the Mung bean as an alternative crop, among others, which requires warm climate during its growing period.

BFAR opens aqua fair, tiangge To kick-off the 52nd Fish Conservation Week, the Bureau of fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) opened on October 19 a week-long “Aqua Fair and Tiangge” at their regional office compound. A ceremonial ribbon cutting led by Philippine Nation Police (PNP) region 10 Chief Directorial Staff PSSupt Gerardo M. Rosales, BFAR Regional Director Visa Tan-Dimeren together with the fisher folk leaders and DENR officials formally opened the event. In his message, Rosales called on for a collective and collaborative effort among stakeholders to enforce all fishery ordinances, rules and regulations. He said that an intensif ied anti-criminality campaign, especially from law enforcement agencies should be enforced for long-term and sustainable protection of the fishery resources through heightened monitoring, control and surveillance of the coastal waters against illegal, unreported, unregulated fishing. Meanwhile, other activities prepped up for the celebration includes cooking and return demo, coastal cleanup, stock sampling, sports, mangrove planting, seaweed seedling dispersal and Information Education Campaign (IEC) on the emended fisheries law or Republic Act 10654, which highlights this year’s theme “Pinatatag na Batas Pangisdaan, Hakbang sa Pagkamit ng mas masaganang Karagatan.

delivery of services that directly respond to the stakeholders’ needs. In simple rites held at the City Mayor’s Office last October 9, 2015, Mayor Oscar S. Moreno signed Executive Order No. 097-15, Series of 2015, “An Order Recognizing the Cagayan de Oro People’s Council” and officially turned over a copy of the document to Peoples Council Chairman Bishop Jollieh Petallo in the presence of some members of the PC. According to the order, the LGU’s support stems from its constitutional mandate to “encourage non-governmental, community-based, or sectoral organizations that promote the welfare of the nation” (Section 23 of Article 2 of the 1987 Philippine Constitution); “respect the role of independent people’s organizations to enable the people to pursue and protect, within the democratic framework, their legitimate and collective interests and aspirations through peaceful and lawful means. People’s organizations are bona fide associations of citizens with demonstrated capacities to promote the public interest with identifiable leadership, membership and structure” (Section 15, Article 13); It further cites from the same section, “The right of the people and their organizations to effective and reasonable participation at all levels of social, political, and economic decision-making shall not be abridged. The State shall, by law, facilitate the establishment of adequate consultative mechanisms. In his brief address to the People’s Council members present, Mayor Moreno said, “The enactment of this order is anchored in and its implementation shall be guided by the following principles: transparency in government decisionmaking and administration; accountability and the delivery of basic services; and participatory governance.” “Participation ensures

Dimerin called on commercial operators, fisher folks and the local government units to work hand-inhand in complying strictly with the law, to achieve an effective and sustainable fishery resource management approach. “E f fe c t ive m an age ment, meaning not only on production unit but in conserving, protecting and managing our resources, as intelligent resource management is the way to increase productivity and food security,” she noted.

Representatives from the city also visited Japan, where they learned how the conversion of used cooking oil to biodiesel was done and, at the same time, they were introduced to other waste-toenergy technologies. Domingo said that the fuel generated from this technology is being used by some companies in Japan. For the Davao project, the biodiesel fuel output will be used initially to run the dump trucks of the City Environment and Natural Resources Office (CENRO)

and other vehicles of the city government, he added. “It was tested that the output can power the diesel engines,” Domingo said. He said members of the CENRO would visit the business establishments here to gauge how much used oil they can collect. “For now, we are making it voluntary (donation of oil),” he said. If this project pushes through, Domingo said this will support the local government’s efforts towards environment conservation. JICA reportedly chose Davao as a pilot area for this project because of its efficient enforcement of local legislation.

Emano said that various appropriated amounts in the 2016 budget would still be for the payment of some debt left by the former Gov. Oscar Moreno, which totaled to some P1.2 billion. He said that the province has already paid some P72 million of the statutory debt incurred by the previous administration. “We are just being consistent with our set of priorities as outlined at the very start of our terms a few years back,” Emano said.
