Shell sees improved income for 2015 By Juzel L. Danganan

MANILA -- Pilipinas Shell Petroleum Corp. (PSPC) is expecting better revenues for the first half this year, compared to the huge losses in 2014. “We don’t have first half results yet, but so far so good due to the stability in prices,” said PSPC president Ed Chua in a chance interview with reporters. He explained the crashing oil prices from July to December last year, had resulted in Shell’s losses due to its fuel stock. Chua added Shell normally build fuel stocks in depots to prepare for the rainy season, to avoid the difficulty in shipping to islands due to typhoons. Last February, the Shell

president revealed he expects last year’s profits to be very bad. Chua also said the net loss for 2014, might be bigger than 2013’s losses of Php1.2 billion, which was revealed as not record-high. Last year, the oil market was in turmoil due to the sustained production of shale oil that was cheaper than petroleum-based oil, which eventually forced petroleum producers to also lower prices. The Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), which supplies a huge fraction of the world’s oil, was forced to lower its prices in a bid to defend its market share. (PNA)

Peso almost unchanged vs. USD By Joann Santiago

MANILA -- The Philippine peso was little changed to a greenback Wednesday as European leaders discuss how to deal with Greece’s debt situation. It ended the day at 45.16 from 45.17 Tuesday. A trader said markets stayed at the sidelines awaiting for the decision of EU leaders on Greece’s membership in the single currency region. Greece has been given until this weekend to present a debt deal following last Sunday’s referendum,

which saw most Greeks turning down creditors-proposed bailout program. Failure to present a new bailout proposal would mean a Grexit. For the day, the local unit opened at 45.22, weaker than the 45.13 a day ago. It averaged at 45.23 after trading between 45.26 and 45.16. Volume of trade reached USD 578.5 million from USD 450.2 million in the previous trading. For Thursday, the currency pair is seen to trade between 45.10 and 45.30. (PNA)

PCSO cuts financial, medical help to Northern Mindanao Bukidnon • Camiguin • Lanao del Norte • Lanao del Sur • Misamis Occidental • Misamis Oriental

CAGAYAN de Oro City––The Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) in Northern Mindanao has cut its financial and medical assistance by half starting Wednesday, a sweepstakes official said. Raul Regondola, regional PCSO manager in Northern Mindanao, said that the PCSO is cutting all financial and medical assistance by 50 percent due to revenue losses of the regional

PCSO office. “The losses incurred is due to the unabated operation of illegal ‘swertres’ number game that has become a stiff competitor of the PCSO, a government recognized lotto outlet in the country,” Regondola said.“Swerteres” is a three number combination game. The PCSO draws the results three times daily – in the morning, midday, and evening. Regondola said that the lo-

cal law enforcers appeared to be helpless in curtailing the proliferation of the “illegal lotto outlets” whose operation has now become computerized and sophisticated. The illegal lotto operations in Northern Mindanao have become a threat and a big blow to the operation of the state-authorized PCSO outlets, Regondola said. He said that prior to the propagation of the illegal lotto outlets,

the PCSO regional office earned as much as Php 135 million from its authorized lotto outlets every month. “With the spread of the illegal lotto outlets, the PCSO’s regional office now collects only as much as Php 55 million a month,” Regondola said. He said that the current situation has compelled the regional PCSO office to reduce its financial and medical aid by 50 percent.

Aside from extending regular assistance to the local government units in a form of ambulance and medicines, the regional PCSO office also extends assistance to hundreds of people who flock to the office every day. “We do not want to cut financial assistance to the patients until the problem of illegal lotto outlets is resolved,” Regondola said.

Natl govt owes Oro P723m By CRIS DIAZ, Executive Editor

CAGAYAN de Oro City––The national government owes Php 723 million out of “fire fees” it has collected from 2010 to 2013 here, a city councilor said Wednesday. Councilor Ramon Tabor said a Resolution No. 12080-2015 passed during the regular session last Monday, asked the Department of Finance (DOF) and the Department of Budget and Management (DBM) to remit the amount to the city treasury. Tabor, chair of the city council committee on police, fire and public safety, said that the Commissions on Audit (COA) reported that the national government failed to remit the Php 723 million shares from the “Fire Code Fees” to the local government units. “The sharing of the fire fees is mandated under Republic Act 9514, otherwise known as the Comprehen-

sive Fire Code of the Philippines,” Tabor said. The COA findings covered the three three-year period from 2010 to 2013. Including the year 2014, it is likely that the amount due to the local government units (LGUs) would balloon to Php 1 Billion, Tabor said. He said that Tabor said that the Fire Code of the Philippines mandates that the 20-percent of the collected fees should go to the LGUs, while the 80-percent will go to the Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP). “Now we know why the local government units, including Cagayan De Oro City, have dilapidated fire trucks,” he said. He said that the remittance of the share of the fire fees is very important for the LGUs and the BFP to acquire state-of-the-art firefighting units and equipment for BFP personnel.

constructed of 27 classrooms in Ilocos Sur, Laguna, Albay, and Cebu for TechVoc high schools. The Foundation will continue funding teachers’ training for Technical Education Skills Development Authority’s (TESDA) NCII certification. In 2014, the Aboitiz Group allocated budget for the construction of 185 new classrooms to help address the issue of overcrowding and lack of classrooms in

public schools nationwide. In the last 26 years, it has donated more than 800 classrooms. The Foundation reported turning over 23 regular classrooms in 9 schools in Benguet, Cebu, and Davao del Sur last year. It also turned over 42 additional Silid Pangarap kindergarten classrooms in partnership with the Aklat , Gabay, Aruga tungo sa Pagangat at Pag-asa (AGAPP) Foundation, which it has

been supporting in the last four years. Majority of the Foundation’s infrastructure building projects last year was focused on the Post-Yolanda Schools Rehabilitation Program where it surpassed its commitment to build or rehabilitate 200 classrooms. Early this year, the Foundation completed physical turnover of 272 classrooms to Northern Cebu schools devastated by the super typhoon.

Its significance (Part 2) Emphasized in yesterday’s column was my fear that if nothing is done to temper the accumulation of wealth by just about 50 families in the country, the economy might collapse with all of us becoming victims to it. That fear was said with the recent developments in Greece foremost in my mind. And the Greek experience is not isolated from the previous experience of Spain, Italy and even the United States. The only difference is that Greeks voted no to austerity measures as a condition for their being bailed out by international lending institutions such as the International Monetary Fund. Spain, Italy and the United States agreed to a bailout. In fact in the case of the US, no less than its own government bailed out failing and crumbling financial institutions including banks to put a lid to the damage it may wrought to the domestic economy. I am no economic guru but from where I sit these economic catastrophes

A deeper view

Jesse E.L. Bacon II

experienced by countries mentioned above is nothing but the result of greed. Greed to accumulate more wealth on the part of giant international financing institutions. Whereas before greed is satisfied by simply having the biggest slice of the market share by manufacturers and retailers, nowadays greed toys with national economies and perpetrated by giant financial and banking institutions. This is exactly what is happening and will happen to national economies all over the world if the greed of these giant financial and banking insti-

tutions to accumulate more wealth is not tempered or no lid is put to limit it. From the perspective of faith, the world’s wealth is for all the peoples of the world to enjoy and benefit from. If its enjoyment is only confined to and it is only benefiting a few families and institutions no economy will ever survive under that type of regime. Greed is the surefire formula for the collapse of economies. This is what is happening to the world now. But what we can do, we may ask. Certainly the 99 percent of the world’s population has the final say in this regard. The majority of the Greeks have already shown the world how to resist this impositions by unseen enemies when they voted no to a bailout conditioned on austerity. The proposed bailout plan that the Greeks overwhelmingly rejected is for them to live in austerity to enable their government to pay debts that to them were rammed down into their throats through means where they were never given

any chance to say no. Like in our case, part of our national expenditure program had to be sourced out from international financial and banking institutions. This imposition is actually forced on us so we can’t get out from the control of these international financial and banking institutions. The relevance of these institutions in the life of nations is anchored on this imposition. We defy this imposition by getting out of their control results in our being shut off from funds coming from outside the country. Even our trade relations with other countries will be affected by this defiance. No country will then dare trade with us. And we will likewise be penalized by making things hard for us if we import much needed items such as machines for our own industrialization. Only by living simple life that we can survive any sanction that may be imposed on us should we decide to defy impositions by these See bacon, page A11

Weekend Thoughts (III) Another family music. Heckling: Is this music or can it be deleted? I remember my parent’s irritation in their faces such as a broken mirror! Once upon a time, we have been getting crazy while listening to our idols’ sounds. In my case, sometime during the 1960s and 1970s. I felt “satisfaction” while listening to the Rolling Stones or danced to the

Beatles. I got hectic dreams together with Pink Floyd or couldn’t hold myself with “Da-da-da_ and its then “German New Wave” which swapped to the world later on - yes, even up to the Philippines. Today, we are the parents of the younger generation again. Is there diplomatic space for any discussions? What’s the music up nowadays?

With due respect to the student of psychology and sociology, we have no attempt to encroach into the other field of specialization where we are alien and inexperienced. Nonetheless, we would discuss about practical thoughts, fears, and the apprehensions of an ordinary person. Thus, a discussion about “the September 2015 agenda” is a subject that sounds strange to most of us. Of course, it sounds strange to us because the

majority of us think only about the routine of the everyday life. Aside from our personal concerns, we think and talk only about politics, economy, and the war in and outside our concerns. With the inherent excitement, controversy, and intrigues that go along with these subjects, the temptations of discussing these subjects would certainly preoccupy our daily lives. Indeed, the mundane affairs often lead us to forget that there are greater issues of important concern. We do not even talk about it.

Fortun calls for vigilance versus disasters as rainy season sets in B By PAT SAMONTE, Regional Editor-Caraga

UTUAN CITY – Agusan del Norte First District Rep. Lawrence Lemuel Fortun has called for extra vigilance against disasters at the onset of the rainy season.

In time for the observance of the National Disaster Consciousness Month in July pursuant to Executive Order No 137, Series of 1999

and Proclamation No. 296 dated July 29, 1988 declaring the first week of July as National Disaster Consciousness Week, Fortun

also reminded the public for “unremitting awareness” to the government’s disasterpreparedness program visà-vis the dangers posed by rain-induced floods, and storm surges in coastal areas brought by weather disturbances as well as falling rocks and landslides from earthquakes. In the light of a bill the

lawmaker has co-authored that will modernize the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration known as the “PAGASA Modernization Act of 2014,” Fortun said that it would be for the people’s interest and well-being to be guided at all times by PAGASA’s precise weather information

Renewable energy firm investing P95b for hydro plants in Mindanao NEW Bataan, Compostela Valley––Renewable energy company Euro Hydro Power (Asia) Holdings Inc. (EPHI) is investing P95 billion for the establishment of hydro power projects in Mindanao. Alan Uy, president and chief executive officer of the company, said Tuesday during the ground breaking ceremony of its New Bataan mini hydro plant that these projects will have combined

capacity of 571 megawatts. The plants, he added, are expected to be set up in the next five years. This, he said, developed after noting the need to augment the power supply in Mindanao. To pursue its plans, EPHI will tap 129 rivers in the island. “Five years ago, we dreamed to come up with a project that will benefit the community that is affordable, reliable and en-

vironment-friendly project anchored in the problem to address the power supply in Mindanao,” he said. The first to be constructed was its P490-million mini hydro plant in New Bataan, which has a capacity of 2.4 MW. The company’s priority sites, at present, are New Bataan, Compostela Valley; Ruparan, Digos City, Davao del Sur; Marbel, South Cotabato; Sawaga,

Malaybalay City, Bukidnon; Bayug, Iligan City; Lake Sebu, South Cotabato; Alamada, North Cotabato; Titunod, Lanao del Norte; and Polandoc, Zamboanga del Norte. The biggest so far is its planned hydro plant in Bayug with capacity of 17.80 MW. The company also bared interest to establish hydro power plants in 29 sites in Davao Oriental. EPHI was assisted by

the government-led One Stop Shop Facilitation and Monitoring Center. Undersecretary Janet Lopoz, executive director of Mindanao Development Authority, said this is anchored on their goal to have balanced energy mix in the island. Of the 242 pending hydro power projects assisted by the center, 129 will be set up by EPHI. “The center will con-

tinue to assist renewable energy companies like Euro Hydro,” she said. EPHI, a subsidiary of Indophil Asia Equities Inc., intends “to be the leading provider of hydro power technology that would generate environment-friendly, economical and renewable energy for every household within the circle of developing countries in Europe and Asia Pacific,” as cited on its website.

GENERAL Santos City--A city council member here is pushing for the creation of a technical working group (TWG) that will study and lead the formulation of the city’s environment code. In a resolution, City Councilor Elizabeth

Bagonoc asked City Mayor Ronnel Rivera to form the TWG, which will be composed of representatives from concerned offices and departments of the city government as well as nongovernment organizations. “The TWG will take the

lead in the conduct of necessary studies and preparations for the formulation of the city’s Environment Code,” she said. Bagonoc, who heads the council’s committee on climate change adaptation and environment, said the

enactment of the city Environment Code is in line with Section 16, Article II of the Constitution. She said it provides that the “state shall protect and promote the right to health of the people to a balanced and healthful ecology in

accord with the rhythm and harmony of nature.” The official said Book 1, Title 1, Chapter 1, Section 3 of Republic Act 7160 or the Local Government Code of 1991 also states that “local government units shall share with the national

government the responsibility in the management and maintenance of ecological balance within their territorial jurisdiction, subject to the provisions of this code and national policies.” A report from the Philippine News Agency

Message Inspired by our people’s confidence in the leadership of Regional Governor Mujiv Hataman, and guided by our obsession for attaining a healthy populace in the ARMM, I am happy to join the Muslim ummah in the observance of the month-long fasting during the Holy Month of Ramadhan. True enough, the month-long period of fasting, prayer and sacrifice we will go through is but part of our universal and time- honored tradition to rise above our passion, transcend our physical environment and commit ourselves to the wisdom of our Most Beneficent and Most Merciful Creator, in the effort to better share our material and temporal selves with God and fellowmen. This is the essence of fasting-to purify and cleanse both body and soul for the Glory of God and with service of humanity. We, in the Department of Health-ARMM, its officials and staff, join one and all in the universal prayer that the true spirit of fasting, prayer and sacrifice among our Muslim brethren during the Holy Month of Ramadhan dwell deeply in our hearts. Happy Ramadhan and Advance Eid Mubarak to one and all. (Sgd.) KADIL M. SINOLINDING, JR. MD.DPBO Secretary of health-ARMM

South Korea in some areas of Mindanao, particularly in ARMM, have snagged the tourism growth of the region. “[The] travel advisories by the US, Canada, Japan, Australia, Taiwan, and South Korea to various parts of Mindanao and specifically in ARMM areas have kept Mindanao an unattractive destination for regional and international markets. Even the domestic market is wary,” he lamented. He expressed hope that with the passage of the BBL, Mindanao, specifically the provinces in ARMM, will eventually get a better impression not only in the peace and security issue but also as an alternative tourist destination. “Currently, the DOT is

by these giant international financial and banking institutions. But we can’t easily get out from their control because these giant international institutions have at their beck and call local giant entrepreneurs, in the case of the Philippines the World Banks says they number only 41 families, who in turn have great influence over how governance be directed. Fighting this world menace by any ordinary citizen the world over is by living simple life, a life that meets only basic human needs for food, clothing, shelter, education and health, among others. The yardstick in determining basic human need is the cost involved in its satisfaction. If being able to eat three times a day, a basic human need, requires one to spend at least a P1,000 per day per person, that is not meeting basic human need for food anymore. That is satisfaction of a want or desire already much more if it cost more than a P1,000 per day per person. One certainly needs to be clothed. But if your clothing apparel costs you by the thousand in pesos because they are signature apparels, then that is not meeting basic human need anymore but satisfying want or desire. The Cubans survived for several decades from their isolation from the world upon the instance of America through various means such as trade embargoes of all sorts. They survived because they opted to live simple life. By living simple life we will thus deprive the greedy few with revenue from us who are living simple life. With their greed not reinforced by the majority, where will they get their wealth? Give this point serious thoughts my dear readers. (React at jelbacon@yahoo.com or at jelbaconii@ gmail.com.

session of the Senate in the US Congress. What is the connection of the “September 2015?” Candidly, I do not want to talk about it, lest, I would be misconstrued as an alarmist. However, everybody has the right to know. I believed that as residents of planet Earth, should be informed about the “September 2015 Agenda.” What is the September 2015 agenda all about? My friends, the “September 2015 Agenda” is all about the possible extinction of the human race. A Comet, about 2.5 miles in diameter is heading towards Earth and the countdown of the catastrophic impact might take place in the middle of September. The National Aeronau-

tics Space Administration (NASA) has reportedly confirmed about the impact that would take place in Peru, a country in South America. The impact is equivalent to millions of millions of Trinitrotoluene (TNT), enough to trigger Tsunamis and change the world climate overnight. There are fears that the human extinction would begin because the mass of dark clouds that would cover the Earth would last for many years. In other words, the Sun would not be able to penetrate the planet Earth for more than 10 years. Send comments/reactions: crisguardian@yahoo.com

infrastructure projects. The Philippines is located along a typhoon path and an ocean-encircling belt of active volcanoes as earthquake generators. The most destructive tropical cyclone that hit the Philippines was Typhoon Yolanda on November 8-9, 2013 that left 6,241 people dead and an estimated P89.6 billion in property damage in Eastern and Central Visayas. “Owing to the devastations left by 19 typhoons that visit the Philippines yearly, I really see the urgent need to modernize PAGASA for timely and accurate weather forecasting so as to make us more prepared when calamities occur,” Fortun said in his co-sponsorship statement. Recalling his observation during Typhoon Agaton’s relief mission he took part in, Fortun said, “The cooperation, the help and the volunteerism showed by our people affirm that the spirit of “balangayan” is alive in each one of us especially in these times of calamities. For that, I am truly grateful. I’m sure that with this spirit, we can surmount any difficulty that is yet to come.”

He likewise claimed that with the passage of the BBL, domestic and foreign arrivals would significantly improve since security concerns will no longer be a big issue for tourists who will visit Mindanao. As indicated in the DOT’s 2012 to 2013 statistics of tourist arrivals in Mindanao, Davao region has been the top tourist destination in Mindanao with an increase of 252,086 tourists coming in or 1,827,086 as against 2012’s 1,575,000 arrivals, while Region 10 or Northern Mindanao which covers the provinces of Bukidnon, Camiguin, Lanao del Norte, Misamis Occidental and Misamis Occidental

26 “conditional” permits to operate out of 46 schools so far. These permits depart from the usually issued permits by the education department over the years as these include “conditions” for them to operate. “It appears that the DepEd is allowing the military to use it in their continuing human rights abuses and attacks against these schools built by the community themselves after its continuing inutility to act in the defense of these schools against human rights abuses committed by the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) over the past years,” said Valbuena adding, “this include DepEd’s issuance of Memorandum No. 221 series of 2013 which allows the entry of military personnel in schools and the recent act of Davao del Norter Division Superintendent Dr. Josephine Fadul ordering the closure of the IP schools in Davao del Norte and recommendation that public schools be established with the military as teachers.” “We call on the government through the Department of Education to stand for the right of the IPs for education and to reject all attempts to be used as an instrument by the military and its subsidiary units which include CAFGU and para-military groups like Alamara (an armed IP group alleged to be operating under the supervision of the AFP) in attacking these schools and committing various human rights abuses and violations against the teachers, students and their community,” stressed Valbuena. He said schools are supposed to be zones of peace as declared by UNICEF and even through DepEd Order No. 44 series of 2005 which declared school as “zones of peace.” “DepEd must do all possible means to protect schools including its students and teachers against military incursion and operations,” said Valbuena, adding, “schools are for teachers and students for learning and not for the military and their military operations.” “We challenge the entire DepEd to adhere to these declarations and covenants,” ended Valbuena.

in the Philippines,” Romulo, the bill’s author, said. Romulo said the MSU system’s vision of becoming the premier supra-regional university committed to the social, political and economic development of Mindanao will be hampered if it will continue to rely on a charter that is already more than 60 years old and tantamount to being obsolete. “MSU system’s goals of setting the standards of excellence in science, arts, technology, and other fields, accelerating the economic, cultural, socio-political, and agro-industrial development of the Muslim and other cultural groups, and preserving and promoting the cultural heritage of the region can be attained only by strengthening its charter,” Romulo said. Romulo said MSU would set the standards and initiate innovations in teaching, research and faculty development in philosophy, the arts and humanities, the social sciences, the professions and engineering, natural sciences, mathematics, and technology, and maintain centers of excellence in such disciplines and professions. The Mindanao State University system is composed of the MSU Marawi, MSU Iligan, MSU General Santos, MSU Tawi-Tawi, MSU Sulu, MSU Maguindanao, MSU Misamis Oriental and MSU Zamboanga Sibugay. Under the bill, the seat of the system administration of MSU shall be in MSU Marawi City, with a common seal which shall be the figure of a Meranao awing (boat) in full sail as the head of the seal, with Maguindanao lamp with three rays emanating from its flame resting atop the boat with the number 1961 written on it and the university color shall be sofra or magenta and gold.
