CBCP slams ‘tanim-bala’ at airport
MISAMIS Oriental-The provincial government in Misamis Oriental has turned over four new ambulances to various provincial hospitals here in a bid to empower the province’s health services, Gov. Yevgeny Vincente Emano said.
A CATHOLIC bishop has criticized what he called “shameful” acts by some airport personnel who allegedly extort money by planting bullets in luggage. Balanga Bishop Ruperto Santos is alarmed over “tanim-bala” incidents reportedly perpetuated by some security personnel at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport. “These are shameful and criminal acts of extortion that prey on our citizens, especially our balik-bayan See slams, page A11

Vladimir Putin of Russia, Xi Jinping of China, who like Obama also gave their respective speeches before the assembled body of nations. Last week, Pope Francis gave his address to the UN general assembly. I personally consider Obama’s speech to the UN as Popish but not necessarily Popish than the Pope’s. In considering Obama’s speech as popish I greatly consider his call for cooperation among nations in addressing the multifarious problems of the world. His mentioning of actual cases where cooperation did wonders in maintaining peace and in pushing for prosperity between and among nations was brilliant. His emphasis on building lasting relationship under a climate of acceptance of people’s differences could be likened to the Papal theme that defined the latter’s first visit to the United States.

Nipping Julio Uy’s dream in the bud
in the Congressional race in 2016. This, after somebody said that former Rep. Jun Baculio has changed his heart. Baculio would run for Congress instead of running for the mayoral post in El Salvador City. With Baculio running for Congress, it is certain that former City Mayor Melit Almirante would run a rematch against the incumbent city mayor of El Salvador. Perhaps, Baculio have learned a lot of the weaknesses of his political campaign in the past. While having a weak and incompetent “image managers,” Baculio was also besieged by political conflict that became contributory to his defeat in the 2013 Congressional elections. Baculio’s weaknesses created the “dark

With no visible opponent in 2016, Rep. Juliet Uy, of Misamis Oriental’s second congressional district, the dream of Villanueva town Mayor Julio Uy to create a “political dynasty” might become a reality. Granting without admitting that Juliet would be reelected in Congress, the first step of establishing a political dynasty in Misamis Oriental would be for Julio Uy to win a gubernatorial contest in 2016. In addition, Julio would also establish a strong grip of the town of Villanueva as the family’s political turf by letting her only daughter run as town Mayor in 2016. The fertile imagination of Julio, therefore, sees him as the patriarch of the political dynasty In Misamis Oriental. What with a wife in Congress, a daughter, as town Mayor, and himself as Governor, one could almost hear as Julio giggles in silence. However, while Julio thinks that his dream of creating a political dynasty is within reach in the next few months, someone might awaken to tell him that “he is dreaming.” Perhaps, that is the case. Juliet Uy would definitely have a run for her money

horse” out of Juliet Uy. Perhaps, if Baculio could iron out the lapses by getting rid of incompetent campaign staff, he could establish a fighting chance to dislodge Juliet. Baculio should also focus towns in the second district where he is perceived to be weak. There 14 towns in Misamis Oriental’s second district, including the component city of El Salvador. Although he could not get a sizeable vote in Villanueva, Baculio could still have some wayward votes there. Based on the result of the last election in 2013, Baculio’s Waterloo was the town of Tagolo-an. Had Baculio succeeded in getting 4,000 votes in Tagolo-an, he could have buried Juliet Uy into oblivion. Right, then, Julio Uy’s “political dynasty” dream would have been nipped in the bud. What happened? It is understood that, in the past, the Baculios’ and the Emanos’ were political allies. It is no secret that Jun Baculio won the Congressional seat in 1998 under the shadow of the Padayon Pilipino, a regional political party headed by “Dongkoy” Emano. A political strain between the Emanos’ and the
Baculios’ took place in 2007 when Baculio, after completing his three-year term in Congress ran for Governor in Misamis Oriental against Oscar Moreno while his son Rex ran for Congress against “Bambi” Emano. A “win-win” solution was then almost reached had Baculio agreed to withdraw the candidacy of Rex. In exchange, the Emanos’ would back Baculio against Oscar Moreno in the gubernatorial post. Out of pity to her son, “Chit,” Baculio’s wife did not agree to the proposal leading to an all-out-political fracas between the Baculios and the Emanos. The political war continues until in 2013 when Baculio ran for Congress. At that time, the Emanos opted to support Juliet Uy, which technically led to Juliet’s victory. Now, with Julio Uy’s ambition to create a “political dynasty” and with his promise to make the 2016 an uphill battle for Gov. Bambi Emano, the political climate would definitely change. One could see the realigning of the Baculios and the Emanos with one common objective: “Kill Julio Uy’s political ambition.” It will certainly take place. Send comments/reactions: email@example.com

lapse. And we also know that greed is the concrete manifestation of sin, the desire to disobey God to realize one’s dream of becoming like God. This was how the serpent convinced Adam and Eve to disobey God’s will by promising them that such disobedience will make them like God no less. Greed is the sole motivation why the one percent of the world’s population desire to exclusively own and enjoy more than half of the world’s wealth leaving less than one half of the world’s total wealth in the hands of the 99 percent of the world’s population. This economic set-up is made possible by capitalism. But the evils it spawns are endangering world peace and causing much disorder to people’s and nations’ relationships. While Obama’s thesis was politically correct, it was unfortunately economically flawed. There can

Emano ‘empowers’ health care, turns over ambulance By CRIS DIAZ Executive Editor
MISAMIS Oriental--The provincial government in Misamis Oriental has turned over four new ambulances to various provincial hospitals here in a bid to empower the province’s health services, Gov. Yevgeny Vincente Emano said. Emano said that the provincial hospitals in the towns of, Balingasag, Alubijid and Initao and the component city of Gingoog have been the beneficiaries of the newly acquired ambulances. He said that the assigning of ambulances to various provincial hospitals in the province would empower the Misamis Oriental Care System Program (MisOr CareS), a pointof-care health care program in lieu of the PhilHealth program. The MisOr CareS program provides the provincial people of the much needed health care services. “Because of the MIsOr CareS, the people are now able to benefit from free medical checks up, medicines, laboratory tests, among others,” Emano said. He said that the distribution of the ambulances is part of the long term health care program aimed at improving the health facilities and equipment of Misamis Oriental Provincial Hospitals (MOPHS).
NATIONAL BARANGAY COUNCILORS CONGRESS ONGOING IN DAVAO CITY
Emano also expressed the gratitude of the support of the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) in Northern Mindanao for its donation of the four brand new ambulances. “With modern hospital facilities and medical equipment, we are confident that the provincial hospitals in Misamis Oriental would attain an improved classification in terms of health services in the near future,” Emanos said.

Soldiers did not engage killers of Lumads in Surigao Sur to protect hostages – Army BUTUAN City--The presence of many civilian hostages prevented a military patrol from engaging a paramilitary group that was accused of killing three Lumad leaders in Surigao del Sur on Sept. 1, a copy of the Army Board of Inquiry obtained by MindaNews said. The report said the patrol was only 100 meters from the paramilitary group holding civilians as hostages in Barangay Diatagon, Lianga, Surigao del Sur but could not interfere for fear of harming
them. It added the soldiers could only helplessly watch despite an order from the 75th Infantry Battalion to engage the paramilitary group which residents referred to as Magahat or Bagani. “We cannot engage the armed elements because of the presence of many civilians including women and children,” the soldiers reported back to their superiors at the 75th headquarters in Bislig, Surigao del Sur. The soldiers reported around 20 heavily armed
Tandag public high school raises ‘health hazard’ posed by IP evacuees TANDAG CITY, Surigao del Sur--The compounding problem “in relation to the ‘health hazard’ posed by the presence of IP evacuees” occupying the Surigao del Sur Sports Complex has been raised to the provincial government here for “appropriate action.” Tandag City Mayor Roxanne Pimentel immediately brought to the attention of Governor Johnny Pimentel the “Situational Report” of Jacinto P.

men were holding around 100 civilians as human shields in Sitio Han-ayan, on Sept. 1. The same group allegedly paraded Dionel Campos and Bello Sinzo, both Lumads, around a basketball court before they were gunned down in front of other residents. The same group was also accused of killing Emerito Samarca, 54, executive director of the Alternative Learning Center for Agriculture and Livelihood Development, a school for Lumads. The report said the armed men fired their guns in the air as they retreated from Sitio Han-ayan until the soldiers could no longer see them. The killings triggered a mass evacuation of some 3,000 residents to Tandag City, the provincial capital, for fear they would be killed too. Military intelligence chief in Northern Mindanao Lt. NOTICE

Will the Pacific Islands start to disappear? AS the global climate is warming, sea levels are rising. This leaves an uncertain future for many low-lying islands including the Pacific Islands – will they sink? How is global warming making sea levels rise? The rise in sea levels is linked to three main factors induced by climate change: • Thermal expansion: As the temperature of water increases, it expands. Almost half of the past century’s rise in sea level is a consequence of the oceans simply occupying more space. • Melting of glaciers and ice caps: With more consistently higher temperatures caused by global climate change, the glaciers and ice caps are melting more over the summer. Moreover there is a decreased amount of snowfall (formed from evaporated sea water) in the winter. Therefore there is significant net gain in runoff versus evaporation for the ocean, causing sea levels to rise.
• Ice loss from Greenland and West Antarctica: As with glaciers and the ice caps, increased heat is causing the massive ice sheets that cover Greenland and Antarctica to melt at an accelerated pace. Will the Pacific Islands actually disappear? Not necessarily – undeveloped reef islands change shape and move around in response to shifting sediments. Also many of them are growing in size, not shrinking, as sea level inches upward. However islands that have been transformed by human development such as Tuvalu (600 miles north of Fiji) which have seawalls, roads, and water and electricity systems that are locked in place, may not have such a bright future. Mohamed Aslam, an oceanographer by training and until 2012 the environment minister for Maldives, Students from the Cagayan de Oro City National High School plant mangrove propagules after collecting garbage said: “The islands are go- at Barangay Bulua in Cagayan de Oro City in celebration of the International Coastal Clean-up 2015 on September ing to fight back as the 19 spearheaded by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources, Region 10 (DENR-10) with the theme See start, page A11

El Niño to hit 3 of 4 provinces in Region 12 KORONADAL City--Officials have cautioned farmers in the Soccsksargen region to brace for El Niño, where the dry spell is expected to intensify and rear its ugly head in three of its four provinces starting next month. Farmers were also urged not only to plant droughtresistant crops, but also to insure them for protection from losses that will be brought by the drought.
Amalia Datukan, Department of Agriculture (DA) director for Soccsksargen or Region 12, advised farmers in the area to insure their crops with the Philippine Crop Insurance Corp. “Doing such could protect farmers from losses due to El Niño,” she said. Based on the advisory of the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration

(PAGASA), the provinces of South Cotabato, Sarangani and Sultan Kudarat—with the exception of North Cotabato—are expected to be hit by the drought. “A mature and strong El Niño is now present in the tropical Pacific Ocean. Consensus of climate model shows that it will likely to strengthen further before the end of the year and may last until the first half of 2016,” the state weather forecaster said early this month. “This 2015-16 El Niño event will potentially be among the four strongest events since 1950 (1972-73, 1982-83, 199798),” it added. The weather bureau said the drought will also likely hit six other provinces in Mindanao, 13 in the Visayas and 25 in Luzon until the end of the year. In South Cotabato province, Governor Daisy AvanceFuentes has called on farmers to plant drought-resistant crops in the area to avoid losses.
“They should plant root crops like sweet potatoes and cassava, among other droughtresistant plants,” Fuentes said. The governor said they expect a milder impact of the dry spell in South Cotabato this time compared to the1998 El Niño occurrence. There will still be rains to fall in our province in the duration of the El Niño phenomenon that is expected this time to last for nine months, she said. Fuentes said that farmers who will be affected by the dry spell will get assistance from the provincial and national governments. To ensure rice supply across the country during the duration of the El Niño, the national government has approved the importation of rice, the staple food of Filipinos. The National Food Authority has announced that the country, in preparation for the onslaught of the drought, will import 750,000 metric tons of rice. (Bong Sarmiento/ MindaNews)
Toxics watchdog backs CHR on chemical safety A WATCHDOG group for environmental health and justice has called upon the various sectors, particularly the government and the industry, to rally behind the move by the Commission on Human Rights (CHR) to uphold the people’s right to live in a toxic-free society. The EcoWaste Coalition issued the statement as hundreds of government, industry and civil society stakeholders gather in Geneva, Switzerland from Sept. 28 to Oct. 2 for the fourth International Conference on Chemicals Management (ICCM4) organized by the United Nations Environment Programme. The group had collaborated and supported the CHR in crafting “The People’s Right to Chemical Safety: A Fifteen-Point Human Rights Agenda,” which the Commission then chaired by Loretta Ann Rosales issued in November 2014. “As the national human rights institution, the CHR made the just decision to affirm the irrefutable right of every Filipino, including those yet to be born, to
be protected against the risks and hazards caused by toxic chemicals,” said Thony Dizon, Coordinator of the EcoWaste Coalition’s Project Protect. “While the CHR will not be present at ICCM4, we hope that delegates will take cognizance of their commitment to chemical safety and reciprocate with bold global actions that will help eliminate the harms caused by toxic chemical exposure, especially to children, pregnant women, farmers, workers and other vulnerable groups,” he said. The CHR stated that “we do not need another Bhopal or Fukushima tragedy to remind us of the adverse effects of (toxic) chemicals to life, health and the environment” as it pushed for “health-based and human rights-based policies on chemicals that will guarantee our people’s right to chemical safety.” Towards a toxic-free society, the CHR sought stakeholders’ support to translate the 2020 goal of the Strategic Approach to International Chemicals See toxics, page A11

Enhancing Multiple Intelligence of the Students By Diodeth A. Ratunil Teacher1 Grade 2- Santan Merangeran Elementary School
“Intelligence is the ability to solve problems or to create products that are valued within one or more cultural settings” -Howard Gardener, Frames Of Mind (1983) When we say multiple intelligences there are lot of things that will come up into our mind. But let us take cognizance of the different kinds of intelligence and how to apply these to the pupils. These intelligences are: 1. Linguistic intelligence (“word smart”) 2. Logical-mathematical intelligence (“number/reasoning smart”) 3. Spatial intelligence (“picture smart”) 4. Bodily-Kinesthetic intelligence (“body smart”) 5. Musical intelligence (“music smart”) 6. Interpersonal intelligence (“people smart”) 7. Intrapersonal
intelligence (“self-smart”) 8. Naturalist intelligence (“nature smart”) So what are these intelligences all about? Let me give you an example if you’re teaching or learning about the law of supply and demand in economics, you might read about it (linguistic), study mathematical formulas that express it (logical-mathematical), examine a graphic chart that illustrates the principle (spatial), observe the law in the natural world (naturalist) or in the human world of commerce (interpersonal); examine the law in terms of your own body [e.g. when you supply your body with lots of food, the hunger demand goes down; when there’s very little supply, your stomach’s demand for food goes up and you get hungry] (bodily-kinesthetic and intrapersonal); and/or
write a song (or find an existing song) that demonstrates the law (perhaps “Too Much of Nothing?”). You don’t have to teach or learn something in all eight ways, just see what the possibilities are, and then decide which particular pathways interest you the most, or seem to be the most effective teaching or learning tools. The multiple intelligences is so intriguing because it expands our horizon of available teaching/learning tools beyond the conventional linguistic and logical methods used in most schools (e.g. lecture, textbooks, writing assignments, formulas, etc.). To get started, put the topic of whatever you’re interested in teaching or learning we don’t have to learn all those 8 intelligences. So we need to start brainstorming ideas for teaching or learning that topic and write down ideas next to each intelligence.
Quandary of Pupil’s Poor in Attendance By Aecia B. Blancaflor Teacher-III Grade-IV –Gumamela Merangeran Elementary School
“If we get our attendance up around 3 million things could change”-Tom Hicks, American Businessman Poor attendance is a common problem for school and 0ffices. Most schools have problems, from time to time, with fairly regular non-attendance by one or more students. This makes it difficult to apply in molding good quality students. Lot of things happened in the school even if we only miss one meeting, as what Tom Hicks said attending class regularly can change a million things that is how important attending
classes is. Attendance rate is important because students are more likely to succeed in academics when they attend school consistently. It’s difficult for teacher to build their kills and progress if a large number of students are frequently absent. In addition to falling behind in academics, students who are not in school on a regular basis are more likely to get into trouble with the law and cause problems in their communities. School budgets may suffer when students don’t attend. In many states outside the Philippines, school budgets are based on the average daily attendance at a school. These suggestions are ought to follow to increase
schools attendance: • Make the school a place where parents and students feel welcome. • Build a relationship with local law enforcement and make them allies in showing good atmosphere in the community, family and students that school is the place to be. • Forge a relationship with local businesses so that they cooperate in encouraging students to go to school and not congregate at businesses during school hours. • Call parents when their children are not in school to let them know the school is concerned. • Talks to students and let them know what they missed.
Remedial Reading: Collaboration of parents and teachers By Maricel Salan Salawagan Central Elementary School Salawagan Quezon, Bukidnon
“Reading furnishes the mind only with materials or knowledge; it is thinking that makes what we read”. John Locke But what is remedial reading in the first place? The term remedial refers to correcting or improving deficient skills in a specific subject. Thus, remedial reading is a change in instruction that helps remedy a weakness in the area of reading. Parents and teachers have very important role in the Childs remedial reading. Parents strive to raise children to be productive citizens and a good steward in their communities. Teachers are charged with creating safe environments in which children can learn, grow and excel academically. Understanding dif-
ferent roles teachers and parents play can enhance a child’s experience and bridge the gap between home and school. Teachers alone cannot succeed in teaching a child as well as the parents for it needs the collaboration of both. There are there things we need to consider in the process of the Childs’ learning development. Teachers spend time preparing children to learn academic skills by creating lesson plans, class work and Homework Assignments. Parents try to make sure their children complete homework assignments, and sometimes provide academic enrichment through after-school tutoring. Discipline is a touchy subject for parents and teachers. Teachers maintain class
decorum by making sure students respect the rules so learning can flourish. Parents take on the responsibility of teaching children morals and values such as respect for others and self and appropriate social skills. Conflict arises when a teacher lacks classroom management skills or has to take over the dual roles as parent and instructor because a parent has a permissive style of discipline. If a teacher suspects that a child has a condition which affects his/ her ability to function in the classroom, such as autism, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder or depression, teacher will work with the parent to have the child tested. If an issue is identified, a teacher will provide additional supports through an instructional education program offered at school.

You can make a big difference The Gospel of Jesus Christ (September30, 2015- Wednesday)Luke 13:18-21- It is like a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and cast into his garden; and it grew, and waxed a great tree; and the fowls of the air lodged in the branches of it. And again he said, whereunto shall I liken the kingdom of God? It is like leaven, which a woman took and
hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened: This is referred to the words of God which grows if it is sewed in our hearts. In Matthew13- Jesus taught about the different kinds of soils which mean the different kinds of hearts. Take note, the mustard seed can grow only if it is planted in the pure heart of a person. The effects are great since it
will transform and renew a person to become good. BIBLE means Basic Instruction Before Leaving Earth. God is like the gardener who always cultivates the soil to make the plants productive and can bear more fruits. God expects you to bear more fruits. God wants you to become more productive in life. God wants you to help yourself in cultivating
your heart. Do not permit the weeds of grudges, hatreds, greed and negative emotions to grow in your heart because they have no room in your heart. You heart is the dwelling place of the living God. Satan has no legal right to live and dwell in your heart even in a single second. Guard your heart with the words of God in order that, your life will become useful. God
Biblical reflection can use you only once you will response to his calling for your life to become the bearer of goodness toward others. You can make a big difference to the lives of others once they can see that you are the walking bible on this earth: Printing paid by: Neneth Ranoa - Bobong BalinoEdith Ranoa, PhD- Tony Jordan – Cagayan De Oro: My new number:

Basa Family of Davao Occ. is 2015 Huwarang Pamilya winner Don Marcelino, Davao Occidental--“Our family is a circle of strength, founded on faith, joined by love and kept by God. Sa tanan nga amoang kalisdanan, kahuyangan, kalipay ug sa tanan nga grasya nga amoang nadawat, gina-hangad namo tanan sa Ginoo (All our hardships, weaknesses, happiness and for all the blessings that we have received, we offer everything to God),” shared 35-year old Marebeth Basa of Barangay Linadasan here. The Basas live in a humble oceanfront home. Marebeth’s husband – Gimmy, 42, is a fisherman. To augment the income they earn from fishing, they opened up a small sari-sari store. “Ginabinuangan gani ko sa akoang mga silingan nga lugi daw kaayo ko sa akoang sari-sari store kay P 600+ lang ang akoang gina-kompra gikan Malita kada bula, unya ang pamasahe padulong ug pauli kay P 500 (My neighbors oftentimes tease me that my sari-sari store is losing and unprofitable since I only purchase around P 600-worth of goods per month. The round trip van fare to Malita [neighboring municipality where I get the goods] is P 500),” recalled
Marebeth, daughter Jim Marey and Gimmy in front of their booming store.
Marebeth. Despite their meager income, Marebeth and Gimmy strived to send their children to school – Sylka Mae, now 14; Brian James, now 9; and Jim Marey, now 5 years old. The Basa Family became beneficiaries of the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program in 2009. “Dako kaayo nga tabang ang programa ilabi na sa pag-eskwela sa amoang mga anak. Mas na-engganyo sila mo eskwela tungod sa programa (The program has been a huge help especially in my children’s studies. They are more inspired to attend school because of the program),” Gimmy shared. Another unexpected blessing came to the family when they became recipients of the Sustainable
Livelihood Program (SLP) in 2012. Marebeth and Gimmy being accustomed to simple, frugal way of living, promised to smartly invest the money they loaned from SLP. “Aron makatipid sa pamasahe nga P 500 gikan Malita, naga-hitch lang ko sa mga molabay nga truck padulong Don Marcelino. Bahala’g galisod ko sa mga bitbit nga pinalit, basta maka-save ko sa pamasahe kay saying ang kwarta (To save on the P 500 fare from Malita, I hitch a ride with private trucks going home to Don Marcelino. No matter the heavy load of groceries I carry, as long I can save as money is valuable)” admitted Marebeth. See winner, page A11

Aside from the loud music of the sound system which allegedly causes distraction of concentration during classes, absenteeism of the students who cannot take the strong foul odor from the air, had been pointed out. The school deemed it wise to attach evidence of hospitalization and other discomforts to prove their claim. (NGBT/Greg Tataro Jr., Radyo ng Bayan-Tandag/ PIA-Surigao del Sur)

Management (SAICM) into a national policy and plan of action. The SAICM 2020 goal refers to “the achievement of the sound management of chemicals throughout their life cycle so that, by 2020, chemicals are produced and used in ways that minimize significant adverse impacts to human health and the environment.” In adopting the 15-point human rights agenda for chemical safety, the CHR cited the paramount importance of applying the principles of precaution, pollution prevention, public participation, polluter pays, sustainable development, environmental justice and other key elements of chemical safety such as green design, toxic use reduction and substitution, “no data, no market,” and freedom of information. In response, the EcoWaste Coalition confirmed its commitment to popularize the CHR’s human rights agenda for chemical safety, which include “zero waste resource management,” by developing a robust program to promote and support it.
“With the current administration about to end next year, we plan to initiate a process that will develop a chemical safety platform for our new leaders to take on, building on our campaign gains and the CHR’s human rights agenda,” Dizon said. Among the measures being espoused by CHR to promote chemical safety include the compulsory labeling of chemical ingredients in products, the implementation of the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS), the establishment of mandatory and publicly accessible Pollutant Release and Transfer Register (PRTR) and the phase-out of lead in paints. The CHR also called on national and local authorities “to actively promote zero waste resource management and reject polluting technologies such as incinerators and its variants that burn resources, undermine recycling and recycling jobs, and contaminate communities with health-damaging pollutants.

In two years’ time, Marebeth and Gimmy were able to multiply their capital ten folds. From a small sari-sari store, they opened a new, bigger store just beside their house. Marebeth and Gimmy never fail to inculcate positive values to their three children. It is evident in their children’s performance at school. To share the blessings they received and pay it forward, the Basas sends 10 IP students to school. They also sponsor students to Girl Scout campings annually. “Buot namo nga ipaambit pud ang among grasya nga nadawat gikan sa Ginoo ug sa DSWD. Tungod niini nga programa, sigurado mi nga makaya namong magtiayon ug makaya usab sa akoang mga anak ang molampos (We want to share all the blessings we received from God and from DSWD. Because of this program, my husband and I and my children are certain that we will succeed),” stressed Marebeth. The Basa family is just one of the 229,871 families in the entire Davao Region that has benefited from Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program. Pantawid Pamilya is a poverty-reduction program implemented by the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD). The program provides conditional cash grants to Listahanan-identified poor families having 0-18 year-old children. (DSWD/ Sheryll Jane S. Fernandez)

2013 will result in the eight “special” barangays finally receiving their respective share of the revenues from the national government starting 2016.
He said he is very happy to fulfill his promise, which he made way back in 2010 to the barangay officials of the affected barangays. “As a former Barangay Captain, I know all too well how difficult the job is, especially when the barangay’s IRA is not enough to solve most problems. Just imagine how much more difficult a Barangay Captain’s job is if the barangay doesn’t receive any IRA!” the lawmaker stressed. It can be recalled that the barangays were created by virtue of the Local Government Code of 1991, which allowed the creation of a barangay through a local ordinance passed by the respective Sangguniang Panlalawigan or Sangguniang Panlungsod, provided the LGU concerned shall provide for their financial requirements of the barangay. Del Rosario revealed that at first the barangays received their revenues from the LGUs concerned. However, due to political or financial reasons, the barangays later on got much lesser and lesser of what they are entitled to based on their requirement of their population. President Benigno Simeon Aquino III is expected to sign the bills into law by November this year. Once signed, the Department of Budget and Management (DBM) assured the Senate Joint Committees that the eight barangays would receive their IRAs starting 2016. (PIO DavNor)

be true and lasting peace anchored on justice and equality if 99 percent of the world’s population are forced to share among themselves less than half of the world’s wealth. This is the logic of capitalism that leaders like Obama should understand clearly so that they can make a correct diagnosis and correct prescription to the world’s ills. If 78 percent of the country’s economic growth and ergo its economic wealth is only enjoyed by 41 families, this according to a World Bank study, can you eternally suppress the people’s clamor, the people’s struggle for justice and equality in the economic realm? Leaders like Obama and even our very own President Aquino and those who wish to succeed him next year should understand that hunger is not the result of laziness thus a choice on the part of the hungry but it is something imposed on the hungry against his will. Remember that no person in his right mind will ever chose hunger over food for the stomach. If this is the logic, then hunger is something imposed rather than a voluntary choice. Biblically speaking, peace and prosperity can only be had when people justly and equitably share the world’s

Parent leaders campaign institutionalization of Pantawid Pamilya Butuan City--Selected Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program parent leaders in this city head the recently conducted signature campaign as support to institutionalize the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program. The said signature campaign, which was held on September 25, 2015 at Robinsons Place in the city, aims to provide awareness to non-program beneficiaries about the move to institutionalize the program, share the story of change in the lives of partnerbeneficiaries through a testimonial message, and gather the support of nonbeneficiaries. As the closing of the 16th congress is about to happen, Pantawid Pamilya parent-leaders seek support from and amongst the legislators to pass and make Pantawid Pamilya bill be part of the priority bills to be included on their discussion as the body resumes on office. “Kani usa lamang sa
among gamay nga mga hang yo sa atong mga mambabalaud nga suportahan ang maong programa (This is one of the many request we have to our legislators to support the institutionalization of Pantawid Pamilya),” parent leader Mrs. Leah Rebuta said. “Maayo ug hapsay nga gipatigayun sa programa ang tanan nga mga kondisyon nga ilang gipangayo. Tungud sa Pantawid Pamilya, nakapa-skwela ko sa akong mga anak, kanunay nako sila nga ginapasulud sa mga health centers, ug ako isip ginikanan, kanunay pud nga nagatambong sa kada-bulan nga ginaconduct nga Family Development Session (FDS) (Pantawid Pamilya clearly and properly sets the conditions of the program. Because of it, I was able to send my children to school and health centers, and I, as a parent, attend to the monthly-held FDS),” she expressed. Pantawid Pamilya is
now the government’s centerpiece development program intended to break the intergenerational cycle of poverty problem in the country. Pending in congress is the unnumbered consolidated bill which seeks to institutionalize the CCT program (commonly known as Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program) prepared by the committee on Poverty Alleviation and pending still at the Committee on Appropriations, for its subsequent submission for 2nd Reading at the Lower House, and SB 1152 in the Senate which is still at the committee level. Because of the continuing move to institutionalize the program, Pantawid Pamilya is able to increase the level of well-being of 183,620 Pantawid Pamilya partner-beneficiaries in Caraga Region. This is made all possible with the interventions provided by partner-government agencies, partner-civil society organizations, and other stakeholders.
bounty, the world’s wealth to each other. When one segment of society ends up deprived by the greedier few, the one percent of the world’s population and the 41 families in the Philippine setting, expect unrest, unpeace to be the rule rather than the exception. How can we ordinary folks fight greed? Let us stop being greedy ourselves. Let us stop loving material things by tempering our own desires and simply live according to our basic needs. Once we stop feeding on the greed of the few, their economic and political power will then crumble like the fool man’s house built upon the sand. But will you take up the challenge of living according to your needs only and never on your wants and desires?
