Warrant of arrest serves on Iligan Mayor Regencia Bukidnon • Camiguin • Lanao del Norte • Lanao del Sur • Misamis Occidental • Misamis Oriental

By CRIS DIAZ Executive Editor

CAGAYAN de Oro City–– The trial court in Northern Mindanao on Tuesday issued a warrant of arrest against a suspended city mayor in connection with the ambushed slay-attempt of a Congressman in Iligan

City last year. Suspended City Mayor Celso Regencia, of Iligan City, was not around with the Iligan police served the warrant of arrest Tuesday afternoon. Regencia’s wife received the warrant of arrest. Regencia is facing three counts of murder and four counts of frustrated murder

as a suspect in the ambushed slay try of Cong. Vicente “Barf ” Belmonte of Iligan City lone Congressional district. Unidentified armed men waylaid Belmonte’s convoy on their way to Iligan City shortly after arriving from Manila at the Laguindingan Airport in Misamis Oriental.

Belmonte, who sustained minor bullet wounds, survived the ambush, but three of his close-in bodyguards died – one of the spot and the two others in the hospital. The police said that the acceptance of the warrant of arrest by the wife of Regencia already served the

purpose. The charges require no bail. Supporters of Regencia berated the murder charges, saying there was no direct evidence that would link Regencia to Belmonte’s slay attempt. The Municipal Circuit Trial Court (MTCT of Initao, Misamis Oriental, however, found a probable cause

that could link the Iligan City Mayor to the ambush slay attempt of Belmonte prompting the court to issue the arrest warrant. . Regencia is currently serving a six month suspension on an administrative charges filed by the political opposition of the City Council in Iligan City.

FOR two years as Governor of Misamis Oriental, ‘Bambi’ Emano has elevated the status of the province into the “Second Most Competitive Provinces of 2015.” To earn the rank as the No. 2 competitive provinces among the country’s’ 81 provinces in so short a time is a feat. How would the previous administration react, but be envious? After all, the previous administration ruled the province of Misamis Oriental for nine consecutive years only to accomplish nothing but leave the provincial coffers empty. With almost Php 2 Billion debts, the provincial government of Misamis Oriental was crawling like a wounded Tiger. Armed with the determination, the skeptic Bambi came to the rescue of the ailing Misamis Oriental. Nobody believes that the young Emano could resuscitate the gasping economy of Misamis Oriental in a matter of years. Nonetheless, after two years, the record would bear out that Gov. Bambi Emano has matured into one of the country’s most astute government managers. Propelling the province of Misamis Oriental into one of the country’s most competitive provinces was

Cris Diaz

no easy task. First, Bambi has to put the house in order. He has to clear his backyard of the remnants of misuse and misappropriation of funds. During his 2nd Taho sa Katawhan (Report to the People) last Monday, Bambi spelled out the accomplishments of his administration since elected Governor in 2013. It was during the occasion that Emano announced the feat attained by Misamis Oriental after vesting 81 others as the Second Most Competitive Provinces of 2015. By the way, Davao Del Sur bags the first place while Cebu landed third. The National Competitiveness Council (NCC) extended the annual award during a ceremony held in

the Philippine Convention Center last July 16, 2015 in Manila. What makes the ranking relevant is the fact that the NCC has spelled out three important criteria for a province or a city to earn the recognition. The criteria are, Economic Dynamism, Government Efficiency, and Infrastracture. The NCC is composed of various independent groups and organizations that include anti-corruption groups that scrutinized the local government’s operations and transparency. In other words, the NCC recognizes the efforts of Gov. Emano to revive the ailing economy and the efforts to strengthen the province financial stability. In terms of infrastructure, the NCC also gives credit to Bambi’s effort to promote the province as a favorite hub for business. Emano constructed roads and bridges that could effectively provide accessibility to every nook and cranny of Misamis Oriental. “The provincial government spent as much as Php 144 million for the construction of roads and bridges to open the province to business stakeholders, See DIAZ, page A11

end in mind.” Are we who we want to be, doing what we’ve always wanted to do? We might be moving up the corporate ladder only to find out our ladder is leaning on the wrong wall! What a tragedy it would be if all our success have been empty and not a reflection of who we want to be and what we want to accomplish. It’s important to envision what we truly want to be and do in life. It enables us to define for ourselves the life that we want to live and truly be captains of our own destiny, instead of allowing life to happen

to us and circumstances to shape our lives. Steven Covey’s principle of beginning with the end in mind is based on the belief that things are created twice. We first envision it before we can proactively work towards making it come to fruition. To make this happen, having a personal mission statement is necessary. Your personal mission statement depends on your priorities and what you want to achieve but perhaps one of the most beautiful mission statement is Ronald Reagan’s challenge to: “Live simply love generously care deeply, speak kindly leave the rest to God.” ••• Mutya ng Dabaw 1997 Jambie Austria-Del Rosario has spent the past 15 years in various facets of psychology, holding posts in human resources management, community relations, training and counselling.

Economic slowdown At a time when everyone seems engrossed with the 2016 presidential elections, reports like the one made by the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) that “factory output contracted while exports slid for the third straight month last June due to weak global demand” do not merit the public’s attention anymore even if it has very serious ramifications on the domestic economy. I don’t want to sound like a prophet of doom here but the need to give reports like this serious thought not just by private and public policy-makers and by the business sector but by the entire citizenry. The implications of this report can’t just be ignored for it touches on every Filipino’s life whether we like it or not. Any slowdown of the economy such as this one results in unimaginable woes such as termination of employment by those already employed but considered doing redundant work or simply because of the company’s inability to generate the profit it needs to maintain such number of employees. Situations like this likewise results in unemployment because companies would stop hiring new ones. In this regard, the role of the government is very crucial. It is the government’s duty to ensure that the economic fundamentals it is putting in place are sound and solid to prevent a boom-bust situation in the economy. But while it is true that during the five-year reign of President Aquino the country experienced unprecedented economic growth rate, the fundamental question is if the posted growth rate were achieved through sustainable means. The Aquino administration may claim yes it has See BACON, page A11

DA-UN FAO collaboration to achieve rice sufficiency By AURELIUS ARAIS

CARMEN, Agusan del Norte – Reduce production costs, raise yield and increase farmer’s income. These are the focal points of the collaboration of the Department of Agriculture (DA) and the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (UN FAO) towards achieving food sufficiency. To trickle down the concept, the DA and FAO conducted a 1o-day extensive Refresher Training Course on Regional Rice Initiative Phase II at Veranda, Carmen here recently. Some 57 participants, mostly integrated pest management coordinators from the country’s DA regional

offices and provincial, city and municipal agriculture offices attended the training program. The training concentrated on innovative and sustainable practices focusing on rice ecosystems, landscapes and value chain incorporated on Save and Grow concept. Save and Grow set by FAO is a new paradigm of intensive crop production, one that is both highly productive and environmentally sustainable. It centers on eco-friendly farming

practices often combining traditional knowledge with modern technologies that are adapted to the needs of small-scale producers. It also encourages the use of conservative agriculture which boosts yields while restoring soil health. The graduates are expected to pass on the learning to the farmers through the conduct of Farmers Field Schools (FFS). During the graduation ceremony, DA Undersecretary for Policy and Planning Segfredo Serrano emphasized the importance of capacitating the farmers to be resilient to calamities brought by climate change. “There are only two options for us to do about climate change, to mitigate

or to adapt, which the latter is the best thing to do as far as our country is concerned,” he said. DA-13 Regional Director Edna Mabeza lauded the participants for their eagerness and willingness to learn. “Education is a continuing process and I hope that upon returning to you respective regions, you will teach the same to the farmers which is the objective of this kind of training,” Mabeza said. Program Development Officer Alma Linda Abubakar of the Food and Agriculture Organization for Asia and the Pacific said since 2013, FAO has supported the Regional Rice Initiative and assisted three pilot

countries such as Indonesia, Lao People’s Democratic Republic and the Philippines. “Selection of the pilot areas was based on the commitment of each country to adhere to its purpose and strong cooperation,” Abubakar said. Regional Rice Initiative is focusing on goods and services produced by and available from rice ecosystems and landscapes, and

DAVAO DEL NORTE l DAVAO DEL SUR lDAVAO DEL ORIENTALl COMPOSTELA VALLEY

Law and order, business-friendly environment, jobs and justice will be hallmarks of a Duterte presidency

F

rom being dubbed as the “wild, wild south” of the Philippines decades ago, Mayor Rodrigo Duterte on Tuesday bared his principles and deeply-held beliefs which served as his guide in converting Davao City as among the Top Ten Most Livable in the World.

During the General Membership Meeting of the Bankers Institute of the Philippines held at the Dusit Hotel, Makati City, Duterte enumerated his “Articles of Faith.” “Let me tell you what I believe in, what I stand for,” Duterte said in a speech read for him by his political adviser Lito Banayo. “A leader (1) Must maintain law and order, (2) Must always listen to the people he leads; and (3) Must uplift the lives of the marginalized by operating with utter bias for the poor.” Duterte explained the importance of these three principles but emphasized that Davao City could not have achieved the progress it attained were it not for the cooperation of its residents. “Let me tell you that this happened not because I was at the helm of the city, rather, because of the collective sense of purpose

and cooperation of all the people of Davao.” He added that the effort of transitioning from a violent and lawless past to an orderly and peaceful present was not easy. “It meant imposing upon ourselves, and teaching our children, the values of discipline, pride of place, and unity towards a common good and the right direction.” When he first won as Davao City Mayor in 1988, Duterte said that one of the first things he did was meet with the group of businessmen from Southeastern Mindanao and made a covenant with them. According to their agreement, Duterte will take care of the peace and order as well as provide for the basic services, while the business group will take care of the business sector and invite more investors into the city. Duterte added that applications for business per-

mits are approved within 72 hours, since there are no bribes or under-the-table deals. “The mayor asks for nothing in return, be it a condominium unit or bags of cash. Because the mayor is not on the take, nobody else in the city government dares,” he pointed out. “From the poor we have learned that giving them and their children the opportunity to advance in life, by ensuring access to better education and health services, and protecting them from criminals and the abusive, is the best way to maintain their loyalty and their faithful compliance with the law,” the mayor said. Duterte has also listed his priorities if he becomes the next president of the Republic. On the law and order issue, Duterte will focus on the following important matters: “Ensure that criminals are afraid of the law; Repeal laws now used by criminal themselves to avert punishment like the Juvenile Delinquency Law; Re-impose death penalty for heinous crimes; Ensure children of OFWs are safe while their parents are

abroad earning a living; Swift and fair justice for all.” On the business side, Duterte said he will push for easier business registration, so that more jobs will be created and poverty eliminated. He added that airport should be renovated and trains must not only be on time but must, more importantly, be safe. Duterte lamented that these improvements should have all been done decades ago but refrained from pointing fingers as to who should be blamed. “You are business executives. You cannot go to your board of directors each time and say you did not meet your targets because of the mess you inherited when you assumed your positions. You should know what you are getting into. If you can’t hack it, be honest… don’t seek the office,” he said. The Presidential hopeful from Mindanao also mentioned that overspending is not the solution to economic recovery. “It is a matter of spending right --- in the right priorities, and with a right sense of urgency.” He added that if the whole of Mindanao were

only peaceful, its fertile plains and plentiful sources of water can feed the whole of Luzon and Mindanao, and lamented the fact that that a country surrounded by seas could have fish which are unaffordable to the poorest of the poor. With respect to uplifting the lives of the marginalized, Duterte said that government, in tandem with the private sector should help each other to keep the prices of food stable. “Food security must be a major priority. We make our farms more productive and give farmers higher incomes. We not only ensure food availability; we also temper food inflation. But over and above these, we are able to address countryside poverty.” “A peaceful Mindanao which is almost typhoonfree, with its fertile plains, and still abundant water sources, if adequately developed, can feed Luzon and the Visayas… Pero pinabayaan kami ng Metro-Manila; land of promise, hanggang promise na lang,” Duterte said in jest. Duterte said that he will ask the businessmen to seriously practice corporate

As we are a listening leader, we welcome your own suggestions. Leaders must always be open to advice, whether solicited or un-solicited,” he emphasized. Duterte said leadership must be a strict taskmaster, and if a cabinet member or head of agency cannot deliver, leadership must politely show him the door. And if the inefficiency is coupled with corruption, then prosecution must follow “It should not take a leader months of agonizing to choose a PNP chief, or to replace a jail warden who allows drug lords to continue with their deadly trade inside prison, abetted with luxurious lifestyles at that. It should take no more than 24 hours,” he said. At the end of his speech, Duterte stressed that, “And IF, (that’s still an IF), I should be tasked by the people to lead, I will within the first year in office, call for a Constitutional Convention to effect change in our form and structure of government. We must change the present highlycentralized, unitary system into a federal system.” “We should realize that bigger nations have their own interests to advance, we should always act in defense of the interests of our nation and our people, no more and no less,” Duterte’s speech concluded.

HOW TO ENJOY HARD WORK By Rosemarie T. Parel – Teacher III Pinilayan Central Elementary School Quezon II District

Everyone should eat, drink and find enjoyment for all his work. It is the gift of God. (Ecclesiastes 3:13). Consider the following Bible-based advice for finding satisfaction in your work. 1. Cultivate a positive View of Work Whether your work is mostly mental, mostly physical or somewhere in between, recognize that “there is benefit in every kind of hard work”. (Proverb 14:23). Hard work helps us to care for our materials needs. God promise to provide for the needs of those who sincerely worship Him. (Matthew 6:31-32) God expects us to do our part by diligently trying to earn on honest living (Thessalonians 3:10). 2. Apply yourself to your work A person can learn to enjoy almost any kind of work if he approaches it with the right mind –set that is, if he focuses on learning how to do things well. 3. Focus on your work benefits others Jesus said:” There is more happiness in giving than in receiving”. (Acts 20:35)There are people

who benefit from our hard work, these are our household and those in need. Indeed, we work hard to provide ourselves and our family the physical necessities of life food, clothing and shelter. We may also help those who are less fortunate. So hard word can enable us to experience the greater happiness if giving. 4. Go the extra mile Set personal goals; challenge yourself to do your work better or faster than expected. Take pride in even small details of your work. You are work hard because you want to, not because someone forced you to do. The person who goes the extra mile- doing more because he chooses to-feel in control of his life. He remains master over his action. 5. Keep work in its proper place The Bible can help us cultivate or balanced view of work. The more important things include our spending time with good rapport with our own clients but at the end of the day when job is done, leave your work behind and focus to your family and have time to worship God.

ANE-I, Claveria, Misamis Oriental––Idle hands and idle lands are getting lesser and lesser as more and more people are joining the rush and cash in on tobacco farming in this municipality considered the food basket of Misamis Oriental. Thanks to the continuous tobacco production operation of the Philip Morris Fortune Tobacco Corp. (PMFTC), the unemployment rates in the two barangays of Ane-i and Tamboboan have drasti-

cally gone down in barely eight months of commercial operation. “Iba na ang aming barangay ngayon. Maraming mga tao ang nakatrabaho. Wala ng mga istambays sa aming barangay ngayon kasi nagtatrabaho na sila bilang labor ng farmers ng tabako (Our barangay is very different now. Many people have found work. There is barely any unemployed here because people have found work as hired laborers of tobacco farmers),” attested Nelly Casiño, barangay chairperson of Ane-i.

Ane-i has a population of more or less 3,000. The unemployed was pegged at 50% before 2012, the year PMFTC established an experimental farm in Claveria. “Ngayon, ang mga tambays nasa 5% nalang (Now, the unemployed is just 5%),” Casiño said, explaining that “kini sila kadtong mga tapulan ug dili gusto mag-labor sa tabakoan (these are those who are lazy and who do not want to work as laborers of tabacco farmers.)” People in this only landlocked municipality of Misamis Oriental have found

out that tobacco farming is so good a cash crop that parcels of lands that have lain idle for years have suddenly become productive. Even in Barangay Tamboboan, where PMFTC established its experimental farm in 2012, idle lands have been converted into tobacco farms, said barangay chairperson Armando Sollano. “Maganda na ang buhay namin dahil sa tabako (We now have a good life because of tobacco),” he said, adding: “Halos lahat ng residente ng Tamboboan nagpa-farm ng tabako (Almost all of the residents of Tamboboan are

farming tobacco).” With employment rates now at its highest, well-off residents in the two adjacent barangays can no longer immediately tap local labor for ordinary household chores as yard cleaning, etc. “Mahirap na kaming maghanap ng labor kasi wala ng nag-istambay dito sa barangay…Wala na akong makuhang magtrabaho sa aming bahay para maglinis ng mga damo sa aming bakuran kasi yung mga tao dito meron ng hanapbuhay (It is very hard now to look for labor because there are no more idle persons around…I

DAVAO City––A durian grower in Davao City is planning to expand his global reach to Japan within the year after making it to the Singapore and Hong Kong markets. Speaking in Monday’s Kapehan sa Dabaw, Larry Miculob, president of the city’s Durian Council, said he will send within the week 50 samples of seedless and vacuum-packed fresh durian to Japan. He added the potential Japanese market would like to make durian as a base ingredient for smoothies. If push comes to shove, he said, he will tap other growers to supply the Japanese market. He said the growers in the city have previously started to export 30 tons of whole durian to Singapore since two years ago and 18 tons last year to Hong Kong. He lauded the passage of Republic Act 10667, or the Philippine Competition Act, and RA 10668, or the Foreign Co-Loading Act, which amended the 50-year old Cabotage Law. RA 10667 provides “for a national competition policy prohibiting anti-competitive agreements, abuse of dominant position and anticompetitive mergers and acquisitions.” Meanwhile, RA 10668 allows “foreign vessels to transport and co-load foreign cargoes for domestic transshipment.” After President Benigno S. Aquino III signed the

Idle and jobless persons in the two barangays and Ane-i and Tamboboan are now very rare — as rare as a farmer here who has not joined the tobacco farming bandwagon — because tobacco farming here needs labor especially during planting, topping and harvesting, which are done on a rotational basis with corn and/or other cash crops, Sollano explained.

Managing God’s Money Wisely By Rosemarie Teves Parel – Teacher III Pinilayan Central Elementary School Quezon II District

Our perspective on money and possessions and how we handle themlies at the very heart of the Christian life. The Bible emphatically demonstrates that how we view our money and possessions is of utmost importance. What we do with them will influence eternity. “If you are faithful in little things, you will be faithful in large ones. But if you are dishonest in little things, you won’t be honest with greater responsibilities. And if you are untrustworthy about worldly wealth, who will trust you with the true riches of heaven?”(Luke 16:10-11). Jesus suggests that all of us continually tested in our money management. Are we faithful in how we handle money? Two practical steps can greatly help us get a grip on our spending: recording expenditures and making a budget. They will foster a healthy dialogue about what we do with our money and help us develop careful spending habits. God

tells us he will hold us accountable for our money management- so we should hold ourselves accountable and enlist others to help us the same. They will improve our mental and marital health. Everything learned in life, from coping methods to table manners, is learned in families. As parents, we should teach our children to associate money with labor. Money and possessions do not fill out the sky; they are earned through diligence and effort. Teach children the value of money and discipline of self-control through saving. Learn the difference between needs and wants, how to save, and how to invest and teach them to share. Encourage your children to share what they have with others as well as regularly to set something aside to honor God. Help our children become generous givers not keepers. God loves a cheerful giver, and he loves a faithful and wise steward.

SCHOOL LEADERSHIP By Rosemarie T. Parel – Teacher III Pinilayan Central Elementary School Quezon II District

In School Leadership Program, you will learn how to harness the full potential of faculty, staff, students and families to make schools better for everyone. We need school leaders who promote the learning and growth of all students by cultivating a strong culture of teaching and learning; setting ambitious goals, and ensuring that teachers have resources, training, and support to achieve them. In the School Leadership Program (SLP), you will develop the critical leadership skills to make a real difference in the lives of

learners. You will learn how to motivate and train excellent teachers, to manage the complex needs of students and parents, to measure the effectiveness of school programs, and to steer a large and complex institution toward greater social equity and maximum educational impact. Within SLP, you can choose between the Principal Licensure strands, which prepares you to work in traditional public schools or the School Development strand, ideal for leading in charter and less traditional settings, or for launching your own start-up school.

The schools shall identify a medical team responsible for management and response of any adverse events following immunization (AEFI). First aid should be administered to the pupils

if they will experience untoward incidence and if any symptoms persist teachers were advice to bring the patients to nearby hospital for proper medical care and attention.

Mindanao Daily A9 NEWS BUSINESS . northmin . caraga . davao Your Mindanao-wide Community Newspaper

The team should undergo an orientation and the team should coordinate with the focal person from the school and they were tasked to orient the teachers and pupils, identify the immunization sites. The School-Based Im-

munization Team already visits and administered the said vaccine to the different schools starting this month of August until the said program will have its full or hundred percent implementation to full fill its aim and purpose.

INSIGHT INTO NEW MANAGEMENT EDUCATION By Rosemarie T. Parel – Teacher III Pinilayan Central Elementary School Quezon II District

In light of these 21stcentury leadership challenges, how can organizations best approach the challenge of developing true leaders? Answering this question means considering traditional models and methods for management education, examining how these are evolving and highlighting new approaches. As suggested earlier, the best answer needs to be expressed

in terms of the wants and needs of both the employee and the organization and the ways of the evolving nature of that relationship will be integral to the success of the enterprise. The key issues, as we see them, relate to the themes of leadership, relationship- building and collaboration-because it is through attaining mastery in these areas that organizations and their leaders in the next century will survive

and flourish. We should note that our consideration of the issues of management education and development is based primarily on the situation in professional service firms. Our experiences have been most intensely in professional services (such as management consulting, accounting, taxes, audit, law, executive search, advertising and public relations). And the professionalservices environment is an excellent laboratory of considering the benefits of

management education, given that the business of these firms is essentially management itself. Client service through focused, developmental assignments is, in effect the raison d’etre of many professional services firms. Additionally, professional services firms provide a powerful window into understanding the challenges of developing future leaders, considering the not-insignificant challenge of managing these kinds of firms.

His love is bigger than your sins Special Gospel of the day (August12, 2015-Wednesday) Luke 7:11-17” now when he came nigh to the gate of the city, behold, there was a dead man carried out, the only son of his mother, and she was a widow: and much people of the city was with her. And when the Lord saw her, he had compassion on her, and said unto her, Weep not. And he came and touched the bier: and they that bare [him] stood still. And he said, Young man, I say unto thee, Arise. And he that was dead sat up, and began to speak. And he delivered him to his mother. And there came a fear on all: and they glorified God, saying, that a great prophet is risen up among us; and, That God hath visited his people.

A MODEST INITIATIVE OF A TEACHER

Don E. Sero Elementary School is just an ordinary school of more than 800 pupils. It may better than many rural school in the country. It has teaching strength of 23 and situated in the hilly part of Barangay Rosary Heights 5, Don E. Sero, Cotabato City, so that when flooding season comes, Internal Displaced Persons (IDPs) were temporarily sheltered thereon. Like other schools, scarcity of school building is among its problem, feeding centre and office canteen is always an issue. In fact, extra activities were being done under the trees surrounding the school. I, as canteen in charge and a school feeding Coordinator began to realize where to feed my beneficiaries, all malnourished or the so

called severely wasted children. Instead of scratching my already whitening hair (maybe caused by over shampooing or aging process), I called up a special meeting with the parents of the feeding beneficiaries and we came up with a unanimous decision to start erecting a new façade still under the mango tree. Through the approval and support of the School Principal Mr. Moksin Kamir, The feeding centre begun to surface. Following Mr. Kamir’s retirement, the aggressive District Supervisor Ma’am Nida Padrique assumed as concurrent principal. She imparted her being aggressiveness to me, thereby empowering the latter to the fullest making,then the feeding process became successful

and the façade became a full blown mini feeding center with a mini fence, water faucet, lavatory, a kitchen and paraphernalia. The best of it was at the onset of the initiative, it was a self help move, division of labour became the menu of the day, but later on, of course the school MOOE made the rest of it through the kind consideration of the concurrent principal. Sometimes ago, I also offered my home and our playground to the School pupils and teachers to do their classroom chores when the school at that time was filled with evacuees caused by flood. Foreseen are more challenges to come under the new administration. The energetic Ma’am Aida T.

Dimen surprisingly is being observed as caring and very motherly, although some are older than her. The school playground is beautified and became very colorful, bearing reminders and challenges filled with wisdom as every comers read the lavishly illustrated tarpaulin. It is also foreseen a better tomorrow for Don E. Sero Elementary School physically and academically as the clock rotates on for Ma’am Dimen leadership style. Thus, in every good work, we gain fruitful result. My secret to success is constancy to my purpose. Prepared by: MAIMONA G. MASCUD Teacher III

Fathers’ Impact on Children’s Self-esteem By Francis Thaise A. Cimene

For weeks now I have been studying the book of Dave Simmons on Dad the Family Counselor : How to Help your Children Feel Confident and Secure. It taught me a lot that led me to write again in Businessweek and share to the readers my reflections on various issues. Besides, I just realized many of our graduates and students of the Graduate School (Capitol University)

percent from Php3.44 billion last year. “We remain steadfast in strengthening our recurring income businesses. This year, we are opening new malls and office towers that will allow us more opportunities for leasing growth. Megaworld is on-track in achieving its Php10-billion target in rental income next year,” added Canuto. Megaworld has announced it is spending around Php20 billion for 12 state-of-the-art office towers in Fort Bonifacio in the next three years. Residential business, on the other hand, continued its momentum as real estate sales soared by 12 percent to Php13.43 billion from Php12.01 billion. Meanwhile, consolidated core revenues of the Megaworld Group, which includes Global-Estate Resorts, Inc. (GERI), Empire East Land Holdings, Inc. and Suntrust Properties, Inc., amounted to Php20.93 billion for the first half of 2015, up 13.56 percent from Php18.43 billion during the same period in 2014.

but the fault lies not in the domestic economy but in the world economy. That defense may hold some water. But from the perspective of sound economic policies, the current reliance on industries other than agriculture-based is suspect. Take for example the inflow of hot money into the domestic economy because of the not so favorable condition in traditional investment havens such as the United States. When the US economy showed some revving up, foreign capital that was brought here were easily brought out of the country and placed in the traditional investment havens that have shown recovery from previous contractions. Unless our economic czars will come to their senses and admit the sad truth that without developing agriculture we can’t hope to develop the economy through industrialization, any growth in the domestic economy will simply just be a boom-bust cycle. This is very similar to what had

are reading Businessweek even those in Afghanistan. It was a surprise to me when one day an alumnus, who worked a s Sy s t e m Management Supervisor for the entire military base in Afghanistan, related to me that he read my article on-line in Afghanistan. At that time I was still writing for Businessweek. Now, I thank God that I’m back in the circulation. In that book, Simmons wrote

Reflections

happened during the time of President Ramos. We were then experiencing economic growth rate that likewise became the envy of our neighbors. But look what happened toward the end of his term. The Ramos administration’s much ballyhooed leapfrogging into becoming a tiger economy was exposed as bankrupt. The collapse was blamed on the Asian currency crisis. It may have some truth. But what can’t be denied was the fact that our economy was standing not on a solid rock but simply on a sinking sand. Why? Because we have not developed our agriculture as a condition sine qua non to industrialization. In our desire to become a tiger economy, we forgot that the tiger has to be given birth first. That birth is the development of agriculture so that factories will have the much-needed raw materials to churn out into finished products. The other problem hounding our economy is our slavery to the dictates of foreign powers through giant international institutions. Our subservience to the policies of these giant financial institutions left us with a semblance of manufacturing activities even if these are not locally owned. But our main role is confined to producing skilled workers and managerial executives for export. This economic thrust is the culprit why we have about 10 million compatriots working in different parts of the world. Given that number who are earning dollars faithfully remitted to the domestic economy to prop it up and prevent its collapse, valuewise we have been slowly but surely made to embrace the ideology of materialism through unabated consumerism hence the sprouting of giant retail malls propagating nothing but such evil called materialism. Truth is, this is the economic cycle that makes the Philippine economy go round. Is this sound? Certainly not! This is one economic cycle that looks at money as something that should be spent the moment it touches the palm of any person for fear that money will go out of fashion a few hours later. Look at the kind of life families of OFWs have.

that “When a child perceives abandonment, shame pierces the heart.” These children think, “If Dad really loved me, he would spend time with me, love me, talk to me, nurture me. He wouldn’t be away so much. Since he doesn’t do these things, there must be something severely defective about me. I am a mistake. I am a shame.” In many ways, I agree to this observation. Experience tells me that my significance was developed because I grew

up with a father who was there in every highs and lows of my life. Although he excelled in his work as chief technician in the former DXOR/DXRK for about 40 years, his focus was to provide for his family and send children to schools that offered quality education. My favorite memory is when he used to wake up at 2 o’clock in the morning just to accompany me every time I studied at dawn. Now, I have witnessed the same nurturance my husband

gives to my two daughters (Danielle, 14 years old and Elisha, 11 years old). Although they are still in their teenage years, I can feel their confidence and witness the development of their healthy self-concept. Indeed, I have a lot to be thankful for not only to my father and my husband but also to all fathers who take their role seriously to mold children with healthy self-esteem. My prayers are with you and God bless!

Generally speaking they are failures to what they dreamed of achieving while working abroad. But is the government about to change this picture by adopting another economic model? I don’t think so. And that is the sad part. (Reactions at jelbacon@ yahoo.com or at jelbaconii@ gmail.com. Read me also at www.raconteurme.blogspot. com)

One of the significant accomplishments of the Emano administration is reviving the bankrupt provincial economy through improved revenue collection. With an increase in revenue collection, Emano was able to pay the debts that he inherited from the previous administration. In fact, Emano could say nothing but thanked the people of Misamis Oriental for the support extended to his administration.

Lolita Milano said that since she started tobacco farming in 2013, she has helped provide jobs to at least 20 of her neighbors. And she only cultivates tobacco on three hectares of her 18 hectares of farmland in Ane-i. Her other 15 hectares are planted to corn. Milano started tobacco farming on a one hectare farm. And every year, she increases the hectarage of her tobacco plantation. To help tend to his 9-hectare tobacco plantation, Paul Araña has employed at the very least 50 persons. “Kinahanglan gyud ang tabang kay dili makaya ang farmer ra ang mag-atiman sa tabakoan ilabina sugod sa ikaduhang bulan gikan pagtanom sa tabako (Tobacco farmers can’t do it all alone.
