person of the NPA’s North Central Mindanao Regional Command, said that Sergeant Adriano Delapeña Bengil, 34, of Lapasan, Cagayan De Oro City, was captured last Saturday in the outskirt village of Policarpio in the town of San Luis, Agusan Del Sur. In a statement released
to the local media, Juanito said that Bengil is the Team Leader of the Peace and Development Team of the army’s 26th Infantry Battalion on a community mission in the village of Mahagsay, 33 kilometers west of San Luis, Agusan Del Sur. He said that Bengil was on his way to the municipal
town of San Luis to reported send money to his family in Cagayan De Oro City when waylaid in a checkpoint manned by NPA rebels in Km. 16 in the village of Policarpo, San Luis, Agusan Del Sur Saturday last week. Juanito, however, said that the NPA rebels would

Trade expert to APEC economies: Strengthen trade facilitation among small, medium biz ILOILO City -- An International Trade Centre (ITC) expert on yourcalled on the 21 member economies of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) to strengthen trade facilitation among micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs). Governments should improve their trade facilitation interventions for the benefit of MSMEs, along with the increasing number of non-tariff measures in
the global market, said ITC Chief for Market Analysis and Research Mondher Mimouni during a press briefing on the sidelines of APEC meetings here. “Non-tariff measures are legitimate. We need them to protect human health,” said Mimouni. He however noted that some countries are using non-tariff measures as barriers to trade. “The problem is not fully linked to non-tariff
measures, in most cases. The problem is how non-tariff measures are used or the procedural obstacles that non-tariff measures create,” he said, noting that the price of goods being traded are affected due to required procedures that comply with non-tariff measures. “This (trade facilitation) is what we need to create, in order to reduce the cost,” Mimouni said, emphasizing that trade facilitation could offset the costs resulting from non-tariff measures, through reforms in the business environment, such as by cutting the rates of obtaining certificates and implementing paperless transactions.

All is gone, but the ‘fighting spirit’ Obviously, the political camp of Cagayan De Oro City Mayor Oscar Moreno, Liberal Party (LP), is now feeling the heat of insecurity. His supporters could do no less, but paint a picture of Moreno’s being politically strong following the exodus of his party mates to the camp of Rep. Rufus Rodriguez. Nothing is new. In Manila, the LP is also unperturbed of the flight of its party members to the camp of Sen. Grace Poe and Sen. Chiz Escudero. The party’s rabid spokesperson Rep. Egay Erice is on a defensive mood while saying that the LP remains strong and denying the reported departure of party mates. Considering that the LP’s presidential standardbearer Mar Roxas could not find a worthy running mate, the LP has resorted to pulling albeit “forcibly” other disinterested candidates in the like of Rep. Leni Robredo, whose credential is the shadow of her late husband, the former Secretary Jesse Robredo. This is a bad omen. The worst has yet to

come if some LP leaders would suddenly jump to the boat of opposition standardbearer Vice President Jojo Binay in the next few days. The worrisome scenario of the LP party in the national level certainly affected the local LP leadership too. Undoubtedly, City Mayor Oscar Moreno, a former Lakas-Kampi stalwart, who suddenly changed political color by joining the LP when he ran for Mayor in Cagayan De Oro, could not escape the inevitability of being abandoned by party mates. Rep. Rolando Uy, might have even thought of abandoning Moreno had it not for fear of the Ombudsman,
a graft court, which still probing into the Congressman’s alleged participation in the PDAF scam. While it might sound silly, Uy’s move to stick it out with Moreno is superficial that some of his leaders might even go for Rodriguez on election day. In what appears to be a desperate move, Moreno is trying to recoup his forces while his supporters are lobbying to convince Rodriguez to get back to Moreno’s camp. Moreno might be adopting a strategy of strength in the face of weakness. And, they called this a “win-win” situation. Absurd! Whoever thinks of this approach is blinded not by reality, but, perhaps, by playing ignorance of the actual political condition. Or, perhaps, having debt of gratitude. How could Rodriguez accept any negotiation when Rodriguez believes his political group leads Moreno’s “victory” in the 2013 mayoral race? The Rodriguez camp knows that Moreno has no political turf in the city.
However, there are few supporters in the first district and the second district, which by normal computation could not even carry Moreno to victory in the 2016 electoral exercise. Nobody wants to play favorites here. However, based on actual interviews among the common people, business groups, households, and professionals, the reply is discouraging when one talks about the incumbent administration. Of course, the supporters of Moreno would not accede to the pulse of the masses and would even belie Moreno’s political career is simply coming to an end. “The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak,” goes the proverb. However, despite all the negativity and pessimism, it is still a long way to go. There are still a number of surprises along the political trail. Many believed that Moreno is banking on these surprises. Whatever, it is worth looking for at these political gentlemen as they draw their sabers in the political battlefield. -0Send comments/reactions: firstname.lastname@example.org
the children. As fiscalizer of the government, journalists expose their lives to unparalleled risk even waiting for a bullet to find them. A newspaperman may walk around without money, with worn out shoes, with faded shirt and pant but almost always he carries a firearm. One knows how to run faster than his shadow, knows how to drop to the floor and take cover when necessary. One thing good, we get invited to big parties, to the home of top government officials, dine with a governor, a city mayor, a senator, congressman and even the president of the country. If a journalist erred, he is slapped with a libel case and most likely goes to prison or even shot dead. If a doctor commits blunder, his patient goes to the cemetery. If a lawyer commits an error, his client goes straight to jail. Some journalists are rich with awards, but poor in cash. It is their employer that usually gets wealthy for their works. Most newsmen drives
a dilapidated vehicle that conks every moment, but they get respect from millionaires and public officials during press conferences. An example of a breaking news. A police officer informed his friend-journalist of an incident taking place at a very moment. The latter was jubilant and ran against the clock to where the incident is happening only to find to his great dismay, it was his brother who got involved and had to be rushed to the hospital. Some government officials hit journalists when they are not around, but give them smiles and honor when they meet. Like public officials, some journalists are involved in corruption too, we call that envelope journalism. Journalists involved in envelope journalism are like soldiers, they do not die but they fade away. True blooded journalists stop writing only when their heartbeats stop and a doctor declares him dead. He leaves this world, but behind him are praises, honor and dignity, their families

is thought to be a corrupt writer. When he gets poor, he is called a slow guy and does not know his job. Nowhere to go. A newspaperman knows how to walk around town rain or shine, in darkness or in bright sunlight, hunting for news, watching for the movement of society, acting as the eyes and ears of civilization. People in the media get the curses of the public when there is no good news. He is never admired when he writes good stories. To the people, bad news is good news or good news is bad. There is little money in the practice of journalism-just enough to support a family and to send to college

Foreign, local Muslims gather in Cagayan de Oro for Eid’l Adha By GERRY LEE GORIT, Correspondent
THOUSANDS of foreign and local Muslims gathered at the Pelaez Sports Center in Cagayan de Oro City on Thursday morning to celebrate the annual Eid’l Adha. Adzhar Madjid, a youth leader, said more than 2,000 Muslims converged at the sports center to spend time together with their friends and families as part of the Eid’l Adha. Aside f rom Isl amic competitions, Madjid said other activities that they have prepared include parlor and sports games. He said traditionally at least 300 cows are expected to be slaughtered in Northern Mindanao for the traditional “meat
distribution.” Eid Adha is an Islamic festival to commemorate the willingness of Ibrahim (also known as Abraham) to follow Allah’s (God’s) command to sacrifice his son Ishmael, according to timeanddate.com. Eid’l Adha, as the law describes, is significant because it is the tenth day in the month of Hajj or Islamic Pilgrimage to Mecca “wherein Muslims pay homage to Abraham’s supreme act of sacrifice
and signifies mankind’s obedience to God,” according to another website, filipinoscribe.com. Eid’l Adha is one of the two Muslim holidays observed nationwide, along with Eid’l Fitr, which was celebrated last July 17. Tomorrow (September 25, 2015), Madjid said Muslim will converge on the Islamic City of Marawi to do the Feast of the Sacrifice, and commemorates the willingness of Abraham to obey God. Earlier, President Benigno Aquino III declared September 25 as a regular holiday nationwide in celebration of one of the two Muslim holidays, the Eid’l Adha.
Choosing and applying the right cement product brings best results People who are hands-on in renovating or building their home seek the recommendation of sources they feel can help them, like cement dealers. “For customers to use the right product for the right application, a better overview of what makes one product different from another will go a long way in not only choosing the right product in building their home but also most importantly, in ensuring safety, an important part of Holcim’s advocacy for sustainability,” Holcim Commercial vice president William Sumalinog said. This is why Holcim Philippines, Inc., one of the leading cement companies in the Philippines, ensures that cement merchants know the product he or she is selling before delivering
it to customers’ homes. Sumalinog noted, “Dealers can help customers distinguish which are quality and sustainable among different cement products and that not all cement brands and products are the same.” Holcim’s portfolio has cement and cement-based products intended for different applications. For example, its Holcim Excel, a Premium Portland cement with advanced mineral additives, is used for almost all kinds of applications but is preferred by many because of its tough performance. What’s more, its Holcim Wallright is used for plastering and hollow block laying and filling. It has better water retention, high bond strength and enhances workability during construction. On the other hand, Holcim’s cement-based products
like Tile Adhesive, Skimcoat, and Waterproofing are perfect for home interior and exterior applications. Holcim’s Tile Adhesive is for high bond strength tile cement; Skimcoat is designed to even out imperfections of concrete floors, walls and ceilings; and Waterproofing is the best waterproofing formulation that uses Holcim cement, special polymer modifiers and chemical admixtures. Sumalinog said that one way to warrant the safety of customers’ construction projects is to enlighten them on how every cement product is used and on how to best apply them according to its purpose. “There is always a right cement product for every application. If customers

Election problem seen in Surigao del Sur if conflict in Lumad areas not resolved CAGAYAN de Oro City-The head of the Commission on Election (COMELEC) in Surigao del Sur has expressed concerns that the displacement of indigenous people and communities in the province may cause problem in next year’s election if issues would not be addressed. “We need to be concerned and address the issues raised by the displaced people in the evacuation area in Tandag City,” said lawyer Ernie Palanan, Provincial Election Supervisor II of COMELEC. He warned that if not resolved properly in due time, it would be a huge problem for the COMELEC. “People should be able to vote freely and without any hindrance and fear. It is our obligation to find means to give the people this,” Palanan said. Evacuees, mostly from the Manobo tribe, have been flocking Tandag, the provincial capital, since last month when Bagani gunmen threatened residents as well as the staff of a tribal school in Sitio Nalindog, Barangay Bolhoon, San Miguel town. On August 28, brothers Cristano and Ellie Tabogol were murdered in Barangay Siargao in the same municipality. On September 1, gunmen of another militia, the Magahat, murdered Emerito Samarca, executive director of the Alternative Learning Center for Agricultural and Livelihood Develop-
ment, an award-winning tribal school in Barangay Diatagon, Lianga town and executed Dionel Campos, chairman of the Malahutayong Pakigbisog Alang Sa Sumusunod (MAPASU), and his cousin Bello Sinzo in front of residents as well as staff and students of the school, whom the militias had rounded up. Presently around 3,000 individuals have been displaced and staying at the Surigao del Sur Sports Complex in Tandag City. Palanan explained that the electoral process is very important since this is the essence of the nation’s democracy. He said he is worried because usually, if there are election hot spots, the COMELEC would ask the help of the military. “But the ironic part in this case, based on our own investigation, the people have a huge mistrust with the Army,” Palanan lamented. He said they may ask the police instead to provide security measures. “As of now we are trying to establish a relationship
with the people and have a win-win solution to get the people to vote. Maybe we can do a joint Army-police operation to help secure the election, but maybe we’ll request the Army to work in the periphery and the police closer to the community,” added Palanan. The Comelec supervisor revealed that together with several personnel, they have gone to the affected areas and talked with stakeholders into finding alternative solutions to the problem. Palanan said that this early, he has requested the reactivation of the Provincial Joint Security Control Center to discuss the issue. “We also made our own assessment and interviews and personally talked to barangay officials in the affected areas. No matter how we try to justify that this is an insurgency related situation, we cannot remove the fact that the election will be hampered,” he stressed. Palanan said they are looking at the possibility of requesting for additional police force – like the See local, page A11

Davao court orders arrest of lawyer in King murder case DAVAO City--The presiding executive judge of the Regional Trial Court (RTC) Branch 16, Emmanuel Carpio, has ordered the arrest of a lawyer representing the three accused in the hotelier Richard King murder for failing to appear in court during a scheduled arraignment. In an order dated Sept. 18, Carpio ordered the issuance of an arrest warrant against lawyer Ben Joseph Tesiorna, legal counsel of accused Paul Dave Labang, Rommel dela Cerna and Rodel dela Cerna, for his failure to appear in court on Sept. 18 despite due notice. Carpio also fixed the bail bond for Tesiorna’s liberty at Php10,000.
As of Sept. 22, Tesiorna has not submitted yet any pleading with regards to the court’s order of arrest against him. At the same time, Davao City Police Director Vicente Danao Jr. will be cited for contempt of court for transporting Labang and the Dela Cerna brothers to Southern Philippines Medical Center (SPMC) without the court’s permission. Carpio gave Danao five days from receipt of the court’s order to explain his act. Carpio handed down the order after the scheduled arraignment of Labang and the dela Cerna brothers hit another delay for their failure and their lawyer to

appear in court. The arraignment of Labang and the Dela Cerna brothers had been postponed several times for various reasons and the last time was on Sept. 3 when two courts received bomb threats. “For the nth time the case was set for arraignment of the (three) accused,” Carpio said in his order. On the Sept. 18 arraignment, Carpio was surprised upon learning that Labang and the Dela Cerna brothers will not be able to appear in court. Private prosecutor Deolito Alvarez, told the court that lawyer Tesiorna has informed him that Labang and the Dela Cerna brothers were brought to
the SPMC. Carpio then ordered his staff to call the hospital and were able to confirm that they were in the admission department but no reasons were stated. Since no “perceived ailments” presented as the cause for hospitalization, Carpio requested the 911 Emergency Response Center to fetch them at the SPMC and bring them in court at 1:30 in the afternoon. Carpio even opened the whole day of Sept. 18 for their arraignment but they failed to do so since they were confined. Carpio was forced to reset the arraignment but warned that no further postponements will be allowed

and the court would continue the proceedings and would enter a “not guilty” for them. In his explanation submitted in court, Danao said Labang and the Dela Cerna brothers were brought to the hospital at around 3:15 in the morning on Sept. 18 after they suffered pains in their stomach. Danao explained that he only acted upon the recommendation of the medical personnel of 911 to bring them to the hospital and “if we wait for the court to open and seek for authority, it may endanger the lives of the detainees.” He said he had no intention to defy the court’s order to bring the three
accused for arraignment on that day. Danao added he was already preparing to inform the court about the incident when he received a court’s order directing him to explain the matter. Danao also informed the court that Labang and the dela Cerna brothers were already discharged from the hospital at around 4:20 p.m. on Sept. 19 and detained back at the Davao City Police Office (DCPO).

Jessica Da-an said that under the project, all farmto-market roads are fully concrete in conformity to the Department of Agriculture’s guideline. “A concrete FMR lasts long and could withstand different climatic conditions and could be utilized for a longer period of time,” Da-an said. Agriculture Secretary Proceso Alcala said that the primary problem with gravel roads is that they are not resistant to the effects of changing climate. Hence, the resolution that all DA FMRs should be concreted.

K to 12: A help for future generation By Jocelyn Abao Principal – I Benoni Elementary School
“Learning is a treasure that will follow its owner everywhere.” – Chinese Proverb Every society which aims a progressive future gives utmost importance to its education. It is because through education, people who will mainly lead them in the future will be much wiser comes to decision-making and problem-solving. Moreover, it is also essential that a society will ensure that whatever learning engrave to the minds of their youngsters, it should be with high-quality kind. Twelve-year program is an adequate number of years for learning basic education. This is the belief of the administration in the lead of President Benigno Aquino, and thus, approving K to 12 Basic Education Program. The current administration have this in mind: Education should be a central strategy to improve the lives
of Filipino people, contributing to the rise of country’s economic status. Further, a change of country’s educational system will enhance the learning of every Juan dela Cruz, which will be his tool to be successful. In K to 12, students will be able to get sufficient instructional time to do subject-related tasks which makes them more prepared and well- trained on a subject area. This program could also provide graduates that are more prepared to enter the labor force. K to 12 consist of technological and vocational education that are teaching subjects, equipping students with skills that are needed in most workplace. Thus, once a K to 12 student graduates, he can be employed even without college degree. K to 12 is a big help. Philippines can be at par and at sync together with other countries, giving wide opportunities for Filipinos. Further, it would also ensure success to future generation.

About climate justice
CLIMATE JUSTICE. Commissioner Jose Luis Martin Gascon talks to media about the case filed by non-government groups calling for an investigation into human rights violations caused by fossil fuel. Typhoon survivors and civil society groups earlier delivered a complaint to the Commission on Human Rights of the Philippines (CHR) calling for an investigation into the responsibility of big fossil fuel companies for fuelling catastrophic climate change that is resulting in human rights violations.

The 50 companies, including Chevron, ExxonMobil, BP, Royal Dutch Shell, ConocoPhillips, are a subset of the 90 legal entities that have contributed the lion’s share of cumulative global CO2 and methane emissions in the earth’s atmosphere, as
identified by peer-reviewed research. Organizations that have provided advice and support to the group submitting the complaint include Amnesty International, Avaaz, Business and Human Rights Resources Centre, Climate Justice Programme, the Center for International Environmental Law, EarthRights International, International
Trade Union Confederation, and the Union of Concerned Scientists. “We pray that the CHR heed the demand to recommend to policymakers and legislators to develop and adopt effective accountability mechanisms that victims of climate change can easily access,” said Fr. Edwin Gariguez, See JUSTICE, page A11
CLIMATE justice is generally used as a term for viewing global warming as an ethical issue and considering how its causes and effects relate to concepts of justice, particularly environmental justice and social justice, according to the online encyclopedia, wikipedia. “Climate justice” can mean examining issues such as equality, human rights, collective rights and historical responsibility in relation to climate change. Recognizing and addressing the fact that those least responsible for climate change experience its greatest impacts is seen by many as being central to climate justice. The term is also used with reference to legal systems, where justice is achieved through application and development of law in the area of climate change. enwikipedia.org
Priest backs push for ‘climate accountability’ Native trees to be planted at Mapawa By Raymond A. Sebastián of CBCP News
IN a show of solidarity with victims of “climate violators,” an official of the Philippine Church’s social action arm has called on the Commission on Human Rights (CHR) to underline the need for fossil fuel companies to assume responsibility for climate change-related human rights violations. “We pray that the CHR heed the demand to recommend to policymakers and legislators to develop and adopt effective accountability mechanisms that victims of climate change can easily access,” stressed Fr. Edwin Gariguez, executive secretary of Caritas Philippines. The priest, a recipient of the Goldman Environmental Prize, made this statement in the wake of
a complaint filed on Sept. 22 by typhoon survivors, advocates, and non-governmental organizations like Greenpeace Southeast Asia at the CHR.

CAGAYAN de Oro City--A 10-hectare tree parks for “indigenous tree species” would be cultivated in the outskirts southeast of this trading capital to showcase the native trees in the country. Edgardo Callanta, head of the Provincial Environment Resources Office (PENRO) in Misamis Oriental, said that the planned tree park would be located in the Mapawa Nature Park in the outskirt village in Cugman, southeast of the city. In an interview Tuesday, Callanta said that environmental officials and stakeholders in the province of Misamis Oriental and the city of Cagayan de Oro intend to plant thousands of “indigenous tree species” on the park on October 3 next month. He said that the seedlings are now available at the PENRO office in the outskirt village of Malasag in Cugman. Among these seedlings are Lawaan, Tanguili, Bagtikan, Red Lawaan, Kalingaw, Kalumpit and Talisay Gubat, all dipterocarp (a family of genera and species of mainly tropical lowland rainforest trees).

A Confluence of Good Fortune:
Crisis becomes opportunity for MOFCCCII with timely intervention at Home for Street Children Story and photos by Mike Baños, NPN Editor-at-Large
Surely this was the handiwork of the Almighty. There’s this old adage about one man’s problem becoming another man’s fortune and never was this truism better demonstrated when a crumbling child development center for street kids that was received a timely gift from heaven that bailed them out of a crisis. Last Saturday, 19 September 2015, the Mother Theresa Foundation Inc. (MFTI) Child Development Center & Home for Street Children officially received from the Misamis Oriental FilipinoChinese Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Inc. (MOFCCCII) the refurbished dining hall, kitchen and comfort rooms on the occasion of MFTI’s 20th anniversary. “The greatest gift you have given us is the refurbished dining hall, kitchen and comfortable comfort rooms, which were the top 3 of our top 10 priorities,” a grateful Mrs. Norma D. Noble, MFTI president, said during the ceremonial turnover and blessing held last weekend. “You came in during our time of greatest need and crisis which you turned to a great opportunity for MOFCCCII .Our children are very happy there is someone concerned for them. These children cannot return to you the blessings you have given to them, except God who will give you back a thousand, or a million-fold even,” she added. “When we first came here, the kitchen was dilapidated that when they were cooking pancit during the rainy season, it would often end up as lomi because of the holes in the roof,” said MOFCCCII auditor Jessie Co, who acted as Master of Ceremonies during the turnover. Rusty Quintana, one of the first batch of street kids sheltered in the center, shared how during his time with the center, kids would simply jump over the wall to do their business in
the bushes instead of using the run-down comfort rooms. This PhP 0.6-million rehab is the first major project marking the 30th anniversary of MOFCCCII which began July 1, 2015 and ends on June 30, 2016. The project is the offshoot of the Memorandum of Agreement signed by MOFCCCII and MFTI last June 27, 2015. “This project signals the beginning of more projects to highlight the 30th year of existence of MOFCCCII which begins on July 1, 2015 to June 30, 2016,” said Mrs. Adelfa Sia, incoming MOFCCCII president, who spoke in behalf of the chamber during the turnover. Also present for MOFCCCII were president Greg Marten Lao, immediate past president Lucio Tan, , 1st VP/Dir. Simon Ching, Chinese secretary Ricky Go, treasurer Dolly Siao Ong, asst. treasurer Rosa Sia, past presidents See Hong, Jose Un Jr., Johnny Lim and Robert Ching, , Sonny Choi, Peter Lim, and teachers from Kong Hua School. MOFCCCII was founded Aug. 26, 1986 by the “Young Turks” of the Filipino-Chinese community in Cagayan de Oro at the time including Steve Gaisano, Albino Limketkai, See Hong, Frank Rolida, Ang Chi Sin, Jose Un, Jimmy Ting, and Johnny Lim, among others. Gaisano was elected as charter president with no less than the late President Cory Aquino inducting them into office. MTFI is a non-profit charitable organization that is dedicated to providing care, assistance, and other basic needs to children who have taken to the streets, are abandoned, or are underprivileged. Registered as a non-stock, non-profit organization with the Securities & Exchange Commission (SEC) on August 9, 1995, its original incorporators included the late Anita G. Magtajas, Generosita M.

Originally located in Barangay 31, Santo Niño, Cogon, Cagayan de Oro, the Child Development Center – Home for Street Children has transferred to its new location at Maitum, Upper Puerto. Fifteen years ago, the foundation was granted use of the five hectare property by the city government for 25 years with a three story building donated by donors from the U.S. Earlier this year, the center was the beneficiary of a city council ordinance appropriating PhP 200,000.00 that unfortunately, is not enough to support the needs of its wards. The Mother Theresa Foundation’s biggest philanthropy is the orphanage that is home to more or less 60 street children. It is open to street children aged 7 to 17 years old who have been living and/or working in the streets.

Chevrolet Trailblazer: Ready for anywhere life takes you
• The Trailblazer LTX AT, LTZ, and LTZ SE now come standard with a built–in Dash camera with 32 GB memory and Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) • The Trailblazer LTZ SE now comes standard with LED headlamps, LED foglamps and LED daytime running lamps • Both the Trailblazer LTZ and LTZ SE now have the Chevrolet Mylink with Mobile Connect (Screen Mirroring) • The Trailblazer LTX AT is now equipped with Android Infotainment System with Mobile Connect (Screen Mirroring) and free 1-year 4G Internet by Globe Tattoo • The Trailblazer LTX AT, our top-of-the-line 4x2 variant, is now available for an all-in low down payment promo of P168,000.00 while the 4x4 Trailblazer LTZ variant is now available for an all-in low down payment promo of P188,000.00.
Born ready to meet the challenging Philippine conditions head on, Chevrolet adds five new variants to an already impressive array of Trailblazers in the country. The bowtie brand launched new and improved variants of the Trailblazer – the LT, LTX MT or AT, LTZ, and LTZ Special Edition to meet the diverse driving requirements and lifestyle needs of Filipinos which also happens to have our extreme weather conditions in mind. READY FOR ACTION At the heart of every Trailblazer is the 2nd generation Duramax turbodiesel engine. The engine line’s 2.8 liter variants produce 200 horsepower and 500 Nm of torque, making the Trailblazer the most powerful and torquey in an already impressive midsize SUV class. General Motor’s signature diesel engine underscores the balance of increasing the Trailblazer’s acceleration, straightline performance as well off-road capabilities with improved fuel efficiency. The Trailblazer’s manual transmission variants are equipped with the new power plant’s 2.5 liter version that is rated at 163 horses and 380 Nm of twist coupled with a new 6-speed gearbox that optimizes the engine’s output and fuel usage. The rainy season is a perennial problem for the flood-prone areas of the Philippine islands. However, the Chevrolet Trailblazer changes the game by being the first local midsize SUV to offer a best-in-class* 800mm water wading capability. The truckbased SUV’s high beltline and strategically placed powertrain
components keep the cabin and engine bay secure from water well within its flood rating. The Trailblazer’s 8-crossmember ladder chassis configuration also results in higher torsional rigidity, delivering an impressive 3.5-ton towing capacity, durability and overall toughness. READY FOR SAFETY The Trailblazer’s numerous passive and active safety systems represent Chevrolet’s commitment to road and passenger safety. The SUV’s Anti-lock Braking System prevents wheels from locking under sudden and hard braking situations, enabling the driver to retain steering control. The vehicle’s Panic Braking Assist automatically detects emergency situations through sudden throttle and brake pedal input changes and applies additional brake force to mitigate the situation. Aside from other safety features, the Traction Control System detects traction variances through road and driving conditions, applies brake force, reduces engine torque or combines both to prevent loss of traction. Steep inclines are a cinch with Hill Assist and Descent Control while shifting “on-the-fly” from 4x2 to 4x4 is made possible with Electronic Drive Mode Select. Almost like having eyes at the back, you can be assured that backing up and parking are effortless with the Rear Park Assist Sensor while the built-in dash camera with 32GB memory allows you to have a real-time, forward-facing recording of everything happening on the road, giving drivers a sense of security while traveling. Another nifty feature is the Tire Pressure Monitoring System that activates a warning chime when one or more tires are improperly inflated. Over and under inflation may cause premature or irregular tire wear, poor handling and reduced fuel economy. READY FOR YOU The Trailblazer not only delivers road-ready performance but also in-car comfort and driver-centered convenience. Interiors are made even more spacious and comfortable with enhanced trims and finishes, exuding a more premium cabin feel. Thanks to the SUV’s sound insulation, external noise is reduced resulting in a more relaxing in-car environment. In addition to the Trailblazer’s comfortable ride brought about by lower Noise, Vibration and Harshness (NVH) levels, Chevrolet also has client convenience,
safety and entertainment in mind. Equipped standard in the LTZ variants is the Chevrolet MyLink infotainment system that features touch screen technology and media connectivity through Bluetooth, AUX, USB and Siri Eyes Free. The LTX AT variant’s Android Infotainment System is a versatile infotainment system that comes with a FREE** 1-year 4G internet connection powered by Globe Tattoo. Both the MyLink and Android Infotainment systems have Mobile Connect that has screen mirroring capabilities, allowing you to see what’s on your phone screen on the car’s color touchscreen display.

He begins to work when the morning sun is shy and smiling, then goes up and stops only when twilight begins to fall and sadness hangs around. According to famous authors, journalism is the most dangerous profession anywhere around the globe. It is amazing many big names hit them, policemen dislike them, public officials curse them, the criminals wished them dead but millions of people admire them for their job. The life of a journalist is filled with laughter, joy, sadness, disruption, melancholy, loneliness and fear. But he lives by his name and die by his honor. Long live press freedom, without it, no such thing as journalist.

Executive Secretary of Caritas Philippines and a recipient of the Goldman Environmental Prize. “Inspired by Pope Francis, the Church will support this Philippine climate change and human rights complaint and will continue to serve as a strong ally in the struggle for a socially just, environmentally sustainable, and spiritually rich world that the Pope and the broader climate movement are fighting for.” “From the Netherlands to the US, people are using legal systems to hold their governments to account and demand climate action. We hope that the Commission on Human Rights of the Philippines will take the bold step in being the first in the world to hold big corporate polluters accountable for their contribution to the climate crisis,” said Attorney Zelda Soriano, legal and political advisor for Greenpeace Southeast Asia. The groups submitting the complaint are calling for the investigation to be launched this year. This is an important building block in establishing the moral and legal ‘precedent’ that big polluters can be held responsible for current and threatened human rights infringements resulting from fossil fuel products. These companies have benefited financially with knowledge of the harms associated with their products. The groups submitting the complaint all agree that now is the time for the big polluters to bear responsibility for preventing climate harm. “Though uncertain of the outcome, I know that adding my name as a petitioner is important and supports a much greater cause that will ensure environmental justice for all Filipinos and the rest of humanity,” said Elma Reyes who started the online petition supporting the human rights and climate change complaint. source: greenpeace.org

the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife: This gospel reminds us about the courage and bravery of Joseph to take the great responsibility as the “El Salvador” of Mary from shamefulness. Joseph protected Jesus and his wife Mary from the hands of the Assassins. This is supposedly imitated by all husbands to die for the welfare of his family. Do not give up your love ones to any one even death is the “consequence” of doing it. Die
for what is right because at the end, heaven will be your reward. God trust you so much for giving you someone under your care and protection. He expects you to love this person no matter what. He wants you to push this person for him to fulfill his divine assignments on this earth. He believes on your capacity to make a big difference to somebody else. It is not an accident for having someone in your life. They are sent by God for a reason. You
are responsible for their welfare and benefits. You are accountable for their better future. You are not born for yourself but for others. You are born to do something great for the sake of others. You have an assignment to produce more fruits on this earth.

spokesman of the 4th Infantry Division, clarified that whatever the recommendation and request of the COMELEC, the Army will push for recommendation based on their mandate. “Part of the Army’s mandate is to protect the people, the right of suffrage. We all know that the threat of the New People’s Army (NPA) rises especially during election period. We cannot just allow and let the rebels roam around and dominate the areas, especially when we know they will find means to sabotage the election and push for ways to extort money from candidates through permit to campaign and permit to win,” said Martinez. He emphasized that the situation in the area is a conflict between lumads who are in favor
and against the New People’s Army (NPA) and that the issue should be resolved among them. “The Army is there so help secure and maintain peace within these communities. The COMELEC does not have the last say on the matter and that other stakeholders – like our political leaders, the Department of National Defense, Philippine National Police and others – can also repute such recommendation if needed,” said Martinez. In the 2013 election, Palanan was the election head in Butuan City who made news when he, together with other stakeholders, strictly implemented the removal of election signage and campaign advertisement throughout the city.

The park would also serve as an educational site for students and the common people to remind them that there still exist thousands of “native trees” that grow in the forest in our country, Callanta said. He said that the proposed “indigenous park” hopes to inculcate in the minds of the people, especially the younger generation, the awareness to protect and preserve the forest for the future generation.
