BUTUAN CITY -- More residents here living in low-lying areas continue to leave their homes, peaking at 101,000 as of this morning, even though the City Disaster Risk Reduction Management Office (CDRRMO) has already noted the lowering of the water level of the Agusan River. Mayor Ferdinand Amante Jr. pointed out that the city has never experienced a flood as widespread and as devastating in the past as the Agusan River swelled the past few days with the continuous rains brought by tropical depression Agaton and the low pressure area hovering around Mindanao and the Visayas before and after Agaton. The CDRRMO reported that as of 8 a.m. today, water level of the Agusan River has dropped to 3.92 meters above sea level from the highest recorded level of 4.6 meters 5 a.m. on Tuesday. The river’s normal water level is 1.7 meters. “The magnitude of this flooding is enormous but we are confident that we will be able to handle this situation.

Gracia Espere, CDRRMO officer in charge, said that 83 of the 86 barangays have been affected by the flooding. She said some of those affected may still be unaccounted for since others prefer to stay with friends and relatives, or just camp out in open areas with makeshift tents instead of going to designated evacuation centers. Espere said that initially, the City Engineering Office estimated infrastructure damage at P14.8 million. The agricultural sector, she added, reported an estimated damage of P17 million affecting 775 hectares of rice fields, 50 hectares corn, 30 hectares banana and 24 hectares vegetables. Councilor Virgilio Nery Jr., a physician who chairs the Sangguniang Panlungsod’s committee on health and sanitation, assured that the city has addressed the health problems that might arise in the evacuation centers.

As incumbent President he requested Dr. Jesus Ho, coordinator of the organization and BISAYA Philippine Mission to prepare and eventually managed to activate the BISAYA Medical Association to forego with the mission in Oroquieta City. Dr. Larumbe added that for the past 17 years, every year they always conducted medical mission all over the country for the benefit of every Filipinos that need medical attention and medications.

An overview to DepEd’s early implementation of senior high school By Randy L. Colot Imbatug, Baungon, Bukidnon

In a purpose to elevate the country’s educational system, the current administration has approved the K to 12 program. This program has added additional years to the system schools had used to implement for so many years. K to 12 program consist of one year for preschool education, six years for elementary and another six for high school. In high school, there would be four years for junior high and two for senior high. To review, it could be remembered that kindergarten education became mandatory as part of the initial implementation of K to 12. The education department then began to revise the curriculum beginning with Grade 1 and 7 (formerly first year high school). Further, the revised curriculum for Grade 2 and 8 was implemented on school year 2012-2013, while those for Grade 3 and 9 and for

Grade 4 and 10 were due this year and 2015, respectively. Originally, the curriculum for Grade 11 along with Grade 4 was supposed to come out in 2016 while those for Grade 12 and Grade 5 were due in 2017. However, under K to 12 flagship, President Benigno Aquino III decided to implement the senior high school (Grade 11 to 12) a year earlier than scheduled as he wish to see the K to 12 reform through during his term. According to Department of Education’s (DepEd) Assistant Secretary for Planning Jesus Mateo in an interview with a national newspaper during onset of 2013, the original plan for Grade 11 nationwide is to commence by June 2016, but the President wanted half of the Grade 11 students to already start by June 2015. In the same interview, he said that 2014’s budget includes

allocation for classrooms because for the use of first batch of Grade 11 students for 2015. There are so many feedbacks for this plan. There are many who approved and there are also who made thumbs down. But one thing is clear: the Philippines is looking ahead. Thinking about the growing population and a budding economy, the demand for quality education is high, and making it high is the administration’s initiative. The earlier implementation for senior high school maybe “too early” to some. It is a fact that it would be another challenge for Philippine Education and education department, as well. But similar K to 12’s beginnings, it is not without challenges. Innumerable mazes may come before its implementation, yet Filipinos could just expect that, again, its purpose is to elevate the Philippine Educational System.

We Filipinos are admired for our competitiveness in jobs and other endeavours in the international community. But our current education system does not effectively support us in becoming more competitive with peers from other countries. The K- 12 education plan is deemed as a solution to that problem. However, there are problems in its implementation: lack of government budget, classrooms and school supplies, and teachers. But we must consider the long- term effect of K- 12, which experts say can be very beneficial to us. Therefore, we must have the strong will in supporting K- 12 Educational Plan for the betterment of our education system and economy. Remember, if we want change in our society, we must start with our education system. The K-12 Basic Education Program provides every Filipino child with the education s/he needs to compete in a global context. Our new basic education curriculum or K-12 implements a mandatory kindergarten year and two years of additional senior high school attendance. Our former 10-year education curriculum now becomes 12 years. The program has been adopted not only in schools in the Philippines,

but also in Filipino schools abroad that follow the department’s curriculum. The new curriculum aims to give Filipino students enough time to master skills and concepts to make them more ready for tertiary or college education. Previously, Kindergarten was optional, and advocates of the K-12 programme argue that students who went to kindergarten are better prepared for primary education than those who did not. In addition, the K-12 program “provides for the use of the mother tongue‘ language as the medium of instruction for students in the basic and lower years for easier learning. The K-12 Basic Education Program, universal kindergarten and instruction in mother-tongue languages are but three of the ten points Aquino’s administration want to implement in order to improve the overall quality of education in Filipino schools. Our economy is very much dependent on overseas jobs and remittances of OFWs. Thus K12 graduates who will be more competitive abroad would give more chances for us to bolster our economy with more Filipino workers in high-paying countries sending money to their families in the Philippines.

Drug Problem is Everybody’s Concern By Noel P . Vestudio, Teacher 1 Kipolot Elementary School Quezon 11 District,Quezon,Bukidnon

One of the major problems of our country is on drug addiction.Many of our countrymen, young and old, poor and rich are victims of prohibited drugs. We cannot just ignore the adverse effects of drug use to our youth and people. The continued use and addiction to drugs,results to violence and lawlessness which we cannot allow because the viability and future of our communities especially especially of the young victims are at stake. Thus, the urgent call for action demands a collective effort. Our government, family, community peers, friends,support group, religious sectors and other must unite and join hands in this noble cause. Our government is already doing

preventive measures and arresting drug lords, manufacturers, planters and users., however everybody must do his/ her share. Like in school teachers and school heads can request authorities to conduct a campaign on preventive drug education and information to the school children and parents to strengthen community involvement. Prevention of drug addiction among our youth starts with the family. The father and mother should know the problem. They must be aware of their children where they go and who their friends are. We cannot allow and tolerate that the children we brought into this world and cared for would just drift into drug abuse, into crimes and eventually put into prison, if not killed.

A lawmaker has filed a bill giving the Philippine Medical Association (PMA) the authority to file charges against its erring members. House Bill 2482 will also create an Integrated Medical Professional Organization of the Philippines, which shall serve as the umbrella organization of all medical societies. Under the bill, any person can file verified complaint before the PMA against any of its members. The grounds for filing of charges against PMA members are gross negligence, ignorance or incompetence, immoral or dishonorable conduct, insanity, fraud in the acquisition of the certificate of registration, addiction to alcoholic beverages, false or unethical advertisement, a iding a ny crimina l abortion, issuing false medical certificate and violation of the Code of Ethics of the PMA. The PMA may impose penalties of reprimand, suspension or expulsion against their erring members. There are 117 component societies, which serve as the basic unit of the PMA, equitably

special feature distributed in all regions of the country. The PMA is one of the most prestigious organizations in the Philippines responsible for the training of specialists through its specialty societies and also for sustained excellent quality healthcare delivery through its continuing medical education and formulation of clinical practices and guidelines. The PMA brings together the entire medical profession under one roof to serve as an authoritative source of information on health, disease a nd medica l practice. The PMA has eight specialty divisions such as Pathology, Radiology, Anesthesiology, Surgery, Physicians, Pediatrics, Obstetrics and Gynecology and Family Medicine. There is no other medical organization in the country that possesses the breadth, composition, membership and nationwide coverage of the PMA, and in almost all matters affecting health or the medical profession, the govern-

ment seeks the advice of the PMA. The measure to be known as the Integrated Medical Professional Organization Act requires all physicians duly registered by the Professional Regulations Commission (PRC) to become members of the PMA. Membership in good standing of the PMA shall be a condition precedent for his or her renewal of license and for the continuous practice in medicine. Under the measure, the Philippine Medical Association, Inc. (PMA) shall retain its organizational structure including the specialty divisions, specialty and sub-specialty societies and the component medical societies and as non-stock, non-profit corporation duly registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The PMA shall prescribe rules and regulations to implement the integration of the medical profession including the various specialty divisions, the specialty and subspecialty societies and their training program, and the component and affiliate medical societies.

Opinion/News

A country of corrupt public servants IN ONE of my daily (except Saturday) radio programs, a letter sender wrote about his frustrations of the unabated corruption in the Philippines. The letter sender narrated the exposure of various levels of corruptions in the government – from Congress to the national government offices. Even the Malacanang and President Aquino were not spared of the infectious corruption that appeared to Cris Diaz have become part of the country’s daily chore. The letter sender was so devastated that he seemed to have resigned to the fact that the country could never free itself in the cudgel of corruption in the near future. Matter of fact, insurgency, drug cartel, and syndicated crimes are no longer a threat to the country’s national security. It is corruption! Aquino’s much ballyhooed “Tuwid na Daan” (Straight Road) policy was nothing but a deceptive political propaganda, the letter sender wrote. Perhaps, the letter sender was right. With poverty growing everyday and as individuals join the rank of the unemployed, the country

is certainly wallowing in abject poverty. The condition is exacerbated with the spiralling prices of basic commodities that one day, eating three square meals a day would be a luxury. By the way, basic commodities are goods that the ordinary citizen needs daily such as rice/ corn, oil, milk, canned goods, fish and meat. What is wrong with our country? To think that the bureaucracy has dozen of welleducated public officials who earned their education in exclusive schools abroad is ironic. It is unthinkable that the country’s technocrats could not outline a viable economic roadmap that would lead this country to prosper. On the contrary, we heard only of economic plans and objectives, that almost always lead to cul-de-sac. While there are few good public servants who think and work for the benefit of the common good, they are so few that their voices are never heard. What the general public heard are raucous public officials who pursue their political ambitions at the expense of the people. These public officials are adept at raising revenues in the guise of pursuing economically beneficial projects. Actually, the ulterior motive is to fill their pockets! It

Missing the Point

Think a minute… Remember the first people to ever fly an airplane? There were the Wright brothers, just a week before Christmas, 1903. They were so excited they sent an urgent telegram message to their sister which said: “First flight in history today! Hope to be home for Christmas.” Their sister rushed to the local newspaper with the message.

flying! The newspaper editor had completely missed the point of the message: for the first time in the history of the world, human beings could fly. Did you know another even bigger misunderstanding in history? It’s Christmas. How many of us celebrate Christmas every year? Yet we keep missing the point.

Destroy Special Gospel of the day: John2:13-22(January24, 2014-Friday)John 2:13-22-And the Jews’ passover was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem, And found in the temple those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money sitting: And when he had made a scourge of small cords, he drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers’ money, and overthrew the tables; And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not my Father’s house an house of merchandise. And his disciples remembered that it was written, The zeal of thine house hath eaten me up. Then answered the Jews and said unto him, What sign shewest thou unto us, seeing that thou doest these things? Jesus answered and said unto them, “destroy” this temple, and in three days I will raise it up. Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days? But he spake of the temple of his body. When therefore he was risen from the dead, his disciples remembered that he had said this unto them; and they believed the scripture, and the word which Jesus had said: This temple was the place of prayers but unfortunately, there are many of us never come to the dwelling place of God. This is a physical temple where God dwells according to 2 Cronicles7:11-6- God lives in His holy temple. Therefore, we need to come to God in the temple for praise and worship.

Davao asked to support startup companies DAVAO CITY – A member of the city’s community of startup companies said the city could benefit from supporting startup companies, especially since some of them are doing this for social entrepreneurship.

Dulce Lada, coordinator of the city’s startup community, suggested that the city encourage the creation of startups by relaxing tax laws, especially for companies still looking for funding agencies for their projects.

“The practice in Davao City is for the city to immediately tax starting companies even when they are just beginning,” Lada said. She said companies in other countries such as Singapore relax their tax

Daily HOROSCOPE AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18) - Don’t bother resisting -- the universe is working at cross purposes with you for the time being, and the only way you can make things fail is by fighting back too hard. Things should be back on track tomorrow. PISCES (February 19 – March 20) - A mysterious benefactor helps your job search -- or some other quest -- in a big way today. Don’t spend too much time worrying about their identity, as it should be clear soon enough. ARIES (March 21 – April 19) - Take a rest today, if possible. Moving too quickly is not recommended, as you don’t have all the information you need to do things right. You should find that life gets better soon. TAURUS (April 20 – May 20) - Your deep understanding of today’s big problem makes you look like a prophet -- so make the most of it! Try to get others to see that your POV is the right one. It shouldn’t be too hard. GEMINI (May 21 – June 21) - This isn’t a good day for idle speculation -- you need to jump into things feet-first and make sure that you’re pushing for action. You can only find out if things will work by trying them out for real. CANCER (June 22 – July 22) - You may experience some serious work-related problems today -- unless you’re in between gigs. In that case, you’re actually in a pretty good position to change your career trajectory.

LEO (July 23 – August 22) - This is not a time for direct action -- you need to listen carefully and think things through before you can have a hope of making a difference. Take all the time you need -- it really matters! VIRGO (August 23 – September 22) - You find it somewhat easier to criticize others than to show them how to do better -- but your energy is actually better for the latter! Push yourself a little harder and everyone comes out a winner. LIBRA (September 23 – October 22) - You’re having a hard time dealing with authority today -- though it may rest firmly in your own hands! Try to democratize your life as much as possible. Those around you are sure to love you for it! SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21) - Try to take care of important stuff right away today -it’s too easy to get bogged down in distraction otherwise. Things may start to get weird if you get too far behind, and nobody wants that! SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21) - This isn’t the best time for you to go shopping -- you are prone to impulsive behavior, and you may end up with some serious buyer’s regret. Tidy up your house or dive into a work project instead. CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 19) - Try to bask in the glow of a job well done -- there’s no need for you to push yourself into an early grave! Your energy is good, and the results are fine, so relax and just accept a moment’s rest.

As a result, personnel of the 701st Infantry Brigade, together with some volunteers from the provincial government, had to travel by foot or ride motorized boats just to reach the isolated towns to help people in need, Ruelos said.

can get on their feet and have some traction,” Lada said. She added that the city’s permit application process, while relatively faster than other cities, could still learn from Singapore’s hours-long application. Lada said that the city’s startup community comprises around 50. Last week, the Davao City Chamber of Commerce and Industry Inc. (DCCCII) announced the creation of “The Cube,” a space where startups and individuals who are employed in online jobs can work and collaborate for a minimal fee. Chamber president Antonio dela Cruz said the facility targets those who are tired of working in coffee shops just to get decent internet connections. The companies are given unlimited internet access for the day for a minimal fee, with the facility located within the DCCCII building in JP Laurel. Asked whether this was a trend, Lada said the city is actually lagging behind since the idea of startups was created in Silicon Valley in California, where companies like Facebook, Yahoo and Google first emerged. “ The Philippines is emerging as one of the key players of the startup scene,” Lada said. Lada cited the success of startup projects Pagesnapp and iCalamity, which recently made tech headlines for besting other developers from around the Philippines. “Startups are not just about profit, some of it is for social entrepreneurship and for developers to give solutions to regular problems,” she said. The two application developers bested other web developers from other countries by writing code for an easy and user-friendly Facebook application development app and a calamity family locator app, respectively. As part of their prize, the two teams will be flown to Silicon Valley to see for themselves what it is like to be in a “startup ecosystem” where ideas are freely shared. The city government has recently said it wishes to interconnect all business transactions to stop corruption, through the city’s information technology

center (CITC). However, funding for the idea did not seem realistic, according to CITC data. The city’s budget for the CITC, as of 2013, was P5 million, which includes an internet connection expense for the city government buildings totaling at least P1.8 million. C apit a l out l ay w a s P158,000, according to CITC officer-in-charge Ricarte Franco Jr. Franco added that the appropriation for a point of payment software alone that would help with the interconnection was around P2.3 million. Just this week, the city also revealed the names of five employees from the City Treasurer’s Office that Mayor Rodrigo Duterte dismissed from government service after finding the employees allegedly mishandled up to P14 million in government funds.

is disheartening that the wicked political character of our country has remained. How shall we correct the country’s political system so that the people would be given a chance of a brighter future? Actually, the answer is within the inner self of the people. This country could only change for the better, it a new generation of politicians are given a chance to govern. Until the old (not the traditional) politicians, their families and relatives, and minions continue to reign the government, this country will always be at the mercy of corrupt, dishonest, and unscrupulous public servants. -0- [Listen to “Alarma sa Udtong Tutok” every 11:00 – 12:00 Mon. to Friday at 95.7 FM Mellow Touch Radio] React: crisguardian@yahoo.com

do with Jesus Christ in this life now, decides what Jesus must do with us after we die. So I hope you now understand the point and meaning of Christmas. That God loves us so much, He humiliated Himself to become a human being named Jesus Christ and die for our sins, so we could be forgiven and free to start life all over again. Only this time, we’ll be living our Maker’s way, which is the right way that always works. The choice is yours. Just Think a Minute

He said that the Visayas line stretches about 53 kilometers from Mactan in Cebu City to the municipal town of Loon in Bohol while the southern portion runs over 97 kilometers from Garcia Hernandez, also in Bohol to the municipal town of Kinoguitan in Misamis Oriental in Mindanao.

rainy season. The medicines were given by donors and indigents can now avail of free medical needs. For the environment, Seno said the LGU’s thrust is towards prtotection of natural resources through legal means especially in the mining industry. He said the local miners who dig for chromite or gold would be employed with minimum wages to curb illegal mining. Companies will be required to practice social responsibility. “Our direction is for the good of the people,” Seno said. In education, some 50 additional scholars will raise the total number of beneficiaries to the LGU’s scholarship program to 250 when the next school year opens. Seno said the additional scholarship expenses will be borne by sponsors. To lessen the burden of taxation among the low-income workers, Seno said he has pushed for the amendment of the local tax code at the sangguniang bayan to benefit tricycle drivers, vendors and other smalltime business operators. Seno said he was able to reduce the interest rate from 9% to 6% of the LGU’s P100-million debt that he inherited from the previous administration. He said the municipal government has been paying almost P1million a month for the interest but the savings now will redound to the basic services for the people. Seno said the P100M total debt came from loans including for heavy equipment, construction of the public market, health center and school. The heavy rains brought by tropical depression Agaton has affected the fisherfolk and farmers of the municipality. Seno said he has provided cash assistance and rice packs to those who have been unable to earn their livelihood because of the bad weather. He said fisherfolks now are covered by PhilHealth. He added that the LGU is now equipped with technological gadgets to help the

portant lifeline that provides for scholarships and emergency assistance to many Filipinos in dire situations. “It is so sad that for the sins of a few, many Filipinos will suffer starting next year from the abolition of the PDAF. Foremost among them are those who are benefitting from the scholarship, burial and medical assistance programs financed from PDAF funds. While it may be true that the PDAF was abused by some legislators, it should have been considered that the PDAF was a very important lifeline for those who want to pursue college education, those in crisis and those who have lost a family member. And we have been very consistent about this in the past years. We have prudently used the PDAF in our scholarship programs which have benefitted hundreds of poor but deserving students; in our crisis intervention programs where families in distress were given emergency assistance and in our burial assistance program where families of departed residents were given burial

assistance to somehow alleviate their pain. Now that the PDAF is scrapped in the budget next year, it will be very difficult how we can continue with these worthy programs,” Congresswoman Dimaporo said. “Now that the PDAF is abolished, we have to make do with what is available. We have to prevail over this predicament. Hence, I wish to assure my constituents that your representative is doing everything to continue the implementation of our worthy programs that have benefited many of my constituents from the First District. We are already coordinating with the Commission on Higher Education to ensure that our scholarship program for college students will continue and we are opti-

mistic that we can do this. We are also coordinating with the DSWD if we can continue with our scholarship program for high school students. More so, we are coordinating with them regarding our burial assistance and emergency assistance programs. Hopefully, the DSWD will allow the Provincial Government to implement the burial and emergency assistance programs considering that the DSWD office is located in Cagayan De Oro City, which is more than a hundred kilometers away and it will be very difficult for those in need of immediate assistance to go there. All these matters will be finalized when the national budget for next year will be approved,” the lady representative said.
