Cagayan de Oro City, on the morning it was discovered that thieves ransacked the place of cash and valuables during the long holidays.

CAGAYAN de Oro City–– Unidentified men bore holes on walls and adjoining buildings from where they stayed during the holiday break and gained entry on a jewelry shop and carted away cash and jewelries valued at P 5 million to P 10 million, the police said on Tuesday. Chief Inspector Lemuel Gonda, head of the police operations in Cagayan de Oro City, said that the robbery was discovered Tuesday morning when the store owner opened the Alson Pawn Shop and Jewelry Shop along J. R. Borja street here. During the initial inves-

tigation, police discovered that the suspects stayed in a nearby Dian Inn along Yacapin Street at Room 123, 125, and 126 under the name of Dennis Faisan. Gonda said that the suspects bore a hole in the wall of the comfort room of Room 125 that made their way to a warehouse of a clothing store. “From the warehouse, the suspects bore another hole on the wall of the jewelry store allowing them to gain entry into the pawnshop,” Gonda added. He said that the suspects then force opened the two vaults of the pawnshop and took all the jewelries, a laptop computer and the P 300,000 cash stored in one of the safes. See store, page 15

Traffic enforcers impose anti-jaywalking ordinance CAGAYAN de Oro City––Traffic enforcers would prioritize enforcement of the anti-jaywalking ordinance and the regulation of “trike” or “padyak” to ease traffic congestion in the city. Traffic officials said that the implementation of the anti-jaywalking ordinance would be the first order of the day at the start of January. The anti-jaywalking ordinance should be strictly implemented to avoid road accidents especially in busy streets here. Officials said that the implementation of the antijaywalking ordinance would be “piloted” at the intersections of the Divisoria Plaza, the heart of the city’s downtown district here. The trike or padyak operations would also be regulated to keep them from encroaching the city’s major streets. Studies showed that the indiscriminate entry of “trike” or “padyak” in the city’s major streets causes major traffic congestion anytime of the day and night. Aside from the “trike” or “padyak” regulation and the anti-jay walking ordinance, the Road and Traffic Administration (RTA) will also go on “double parking violations” and street vendors, traffic officials said.

Atega breaches 2013 land distribution goal by 226% By PAT SAMONTE Regional Editor-Caraga

BU T UA N C it y – – Ag u san del Norte Provincial Agrarian Reform Project Officer (PARPO) Andre B. Atega has again set a record in land distribution in the province by breaking the 2013 official projection by 226 percent. No less than Agrarian Reform Secretary Virgilio de los Reyes during his unannounced guesting of the Department of Agrarian Reform in Caraga’s Christmas Party here last December acknowledged and lauded PARPO Atega’s accomplishment. Of the 1,370 hectares of agricultural lands targeted last year, Atega had distributed 3,091 hectares to landless soil tillers or 1,721 hectares more than the annual projection. Records show that as early as June 15, 2013, the Agusan del Norte Provincial Agrarian Reform Office had already exceeded its annual target by828 hectares by handing over 2,198 hectares to 1,248 farmer-beneficiaries.

people gone into the system we can expect public funds untouched and therefore, could reach to help the poor people in the countryside. We now can install projects in many places. To think about the billions of pesos we lost to corruption is definitely a source of anger. Filipinos have been quiet about it but are extremely angry over the years.. For the new year, let us make our drive against corruption stronger, more determined, seriously straight and relentlessly in order to truly achieve our goals of sending to jail the corrupt individuals. For decades the country suffered from the hands of these thieves

and we have to stop this before we all collapse. The taxpayers must support the government all the time to prolong our existence as people of this republic. Our country is ranked in the top ten of the most corrupt countries in Asia. We have to correct this label on our faces and change our image. Many past presidents of this country have tried to put down corruption but they all failed because of strong political intervention. Most of the corrupt government personnel have connections with the high ranking politicians the reason why they failed. The trend at present is such that Aquino does not mind who is hurt and guilty for as long as the campaign against corruption should go on. Here the people admire the president for his sincere efforts and look forward soon the robbery in the government system will end. (benemata@yahoo.com)

My one and only admiration of Pres. Noy Aquino at the end of this year is his fight to dismantle corruption in the country. Several big time personalities that included former Pres. Gloria Arroyo is now facing corruption charges as well as Senators Enrile, Revilla, Estrada and a lot others. He should try his luck in all three branches of the government including politicians who have enriched themselves at the expense of the taxpayers. I suggest he form an agency of BIR-detectives to investigate unexplained wealth of many government employees. Aquino has already touched the bureau of customs. I hope he will invade the bureau of internal revenue, the department of labor, the Immigration Commission, and nearly all government agencies. A lot of monsters clothed in angels attire are sitting in swivel chairs in these

A determined campaign against corruption will surely improve the image of this corrupt country. The campaign has been started and I hope it will go on until our jails are packed with worthless corrupt personnel. Of course, we need to see people, who have impoverished the country for many years, thrown behind bars. Many of them are still walking among us in public and they deserved to be behind bars too.

Plunder in license plates row? LIFE’S INSPIRATIONS: “… your Father knows what you need before you ask him…” (Jesus Christ, our God and Savior, in Matthew 6:8, the Holy Bible). -oooP LU N D E R I N L I CENSE PLATES ROW? The continuing failure of the Land Transportation Office (LTO), Department of Transportation and Communication (DOTC), and of the Office of the President through the Department of Budget and Management (DBM), to release vehicle license plates up to now constitutes graft and corruption and even plunder in billions of pesos. This is so because those who have been registering their vehicles, whether cars, jeeps, trucks, or motorcycles, have paid for those plates already, on account of the current policy of the government now, through the LTO and the DOTC, to the effect that no vehicle will be registered for any current year, unless the owners have paid for the license plates as well. Consequently, the nondelivery of the alreadypaid-for license plates to the owners of the vehicles constitutes undue injury to them, caused by the LTO and the DOTC, under

Kakampi mo ang batas Atty. Batas Mauricio Section 3 (3) of Republic Act 3019, or the Anti-Graft and Corrupt Practices Act. I wonder why the Office of the Ombudsman seems uninterested to look into this matter, even if it is a clear case of corruption or, perhaps, even plunder? -oooWORRYING SHOWS LACK OF FAITH IN GOD: Today, let us look at the subject matter of “worrying”. Many of us engage in this habit regularly, making it almost as an inseparable part of our lives. We worry about almost everything. We seem to think that nothing will ever work out right. We worry that we will have no money, we worry about our health, about our work, about our families. This is not good. The fact is that, if we worr y, we are actually confessing that we do not have faith in God. We are actually saying that God will not be able to take care of our needs, and of our lives. We are in fact

making God a liar, telling Him His promises of love, care, protection, guidance and blessings are not true, and that there is a force greater than Him that would ruin all these promises. Well, it is time to stop all these worrying. It is time to change our minds. This is what we should do---change our minds--as Romans 12:1-2 of the Bible is telling us. It says: “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will…” -oooRENEWING OUR MINDS FOR SUCCESS: How do we become “transformed by the renewing of our mind”? The Apostle Paul, writing in Ephesians 4:8, gives this advice: “Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right,

whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.” What are the things that are excellent and praiseworthy that all of us should be thinking about? First is the fact that Jesus Christ is God and Savior (see John 1:1-14, Isaiah 7:14 and 9:6 and Matthew 1:18-25), that He loves us ever so greatly He Himself came down from heaven so that whoever believes in Him will not perish but will have eternal life (John 3:16). Second, Jesus told us not to worry about anything, even about tomorrow, and that, rather, we should seek first His kingdom and His righteousness and He will give us all the things we need and desire (Matthew 6:25-34), that we can do all things through Him (Philippians 4:13) because the Spirit He has given us is greater than the spirit that is in this world. So, stop worrying! -oooREACTIONS? Please call me at 0917 984 24 68, 0918 574 0193, 0922 833 43 96. Email: melaniolazomauriciojr@outlook. com, batasmauricio@yahoo.com and mmauriciojr111@gmail.com

Biblical reflection Bro. Edcel L. Closas

Sinner

Special Gospel of the day: Luke8:1-3(January3, 2014-Friday) Luke 8:1-3-And it came to pass afterward, that he went throughout every city and village, preaching and shewing the glad tidings of the kingdom of God: and the twelve [were] with him, And certain women, which had been healed of evil spirits and infirmities, Mary called Magdalene, out of whom went seven devils, And Joanna the wife of Chuza Herod’s steward, and Susanna, and many others, which ministered unto him of their substance: This is the works of Jesus in his evangelization ministry that brings joy to the people. In Luke 5:32-I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance. This means that Jesus has a great love to all sinners. Take note, our ultimate call is “repentance” and transformation since God is hurt if there is a “sinner” died. In Jeremiah 31:3-The LORD hath appeared of old unto me, [saying], Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee. Are you a sinner? God loves you so much and He wants you to reconcile with Him. Jesus preached the gospel when He was here on earth like us human beings. Who continues the works of preaching? In Hebrews 1:1-2-God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, Hath in these last days spoken unto us by [his] Son. This means that God speaks to us through His servants, Lay and Priests to continue the work of evangelization in the modern times since Christ is no longer human. We can notice that healing and deliverance was the effect of Jesus preaching. Friends, God wants you to be his servants for the healing and deliverance of the people from evils and infirmities: Printing paid by:Neneth Bobong Balino- Dr. Edith, PhD- Tony Jordan - CDO.

Filming the Frontiers by Hobart Savior

T

here is a film making harvest in the regions that forwards the stories, aspirations, voices and experiences that are richly layered with cultural identity, local lore, local color, truths, struggles and marginalization. These are captured through the lens of our regional film makers whose works are worthy of audience’s attention for awareness, understanding and solidarity – peace. This film making harvest also shows the distinct capacities and aspired outcomes of film making that challenge the mainstream and Manila centric type of commercial film making and independent film making. This harvest is CINEMA REHIYON 6, an annual noncompetition film festival for the regions. Cinema Rehiyon 6 is the flagship project of the National Committee on Cinema of the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA) in celebration of the Philippine Arts Festival. It started in 2009 where film making Alternativo sense was the focus, so film making initiatives from Bacolod, Baguio, Cebu, Davao, Ilo Ilo, Naga and Northern Mindanao. In 2010, the festival continued to garner serious attention from the film making community. The first and the second Cinema Rehiyon, held in the Cultural Center of the Philippines, brought confidence and pride to the regional film makers because they shared successfully their stories not only among themselves but also with the community. Films from the Other Philippines expanded as Cinema Rehiyon 3 entries were added with films from Bohol, Calabarzon, Pampanga, Pangasinan and Samar. In 2011, Cinema Rehiyon 3 was held in Davao City. This was the first time the festival was brought to the region as it is true to its concept of Forging Philippine Cinediversity. The Davao leg focused on looking at the films as specimens of understanding multi-ethnic, multi-lingual, multi-cultural facets (Co, 2011). Bacolod City was the venue for Cinema Rehiyon 4 which affirms and validates the sense of Empowering Regional Cinema. The festival was titled, Bacollywood. One good feature during Bacollywood was Cine de Bario which ‘brought cinema to public spaces and the showing of video art installation that featured works of video artists from different parts of the country.’ Just last year, Cinema Rehiyon 5 was held in Los Banos with the theme Nurturing Cinemas of Home. The festival was excellently managed and implemented with objectives set were met and audience development was commendable. In February of 2014, Cinema Rehiyon 6 complements the film making frontiers on sociocultural responsibility. In accordance to the Philippine Arts Festival Theme, KASING – SINING Art on the Edge, Art with a Heart, Cinema Rehiyon 6 features film making frontiers that have themes that could give positive impact and transforms lives for the better. Films that will educate the community about disaster risk reduction and management, climate change, environmental protection and preservation, rebuilding lives and communities and cultural solidarity and understanding shall be programmed. CINETALAKAYAN- a Cinema Rehiyon 6 Forum programs topics on Film Making and Socio-Cultural Responsibilities, and CINEBARANGAY reaches the Sendong Survivors by screening inspirational films and animated films from the regions and by giving the communities multi-media forum on disaster risk management, climate change resiliency and mitigation.

BFP: Pagadian City Fire Station marks P29-M property damage in 2013 PAGADIAN CITY, Zamboanga del Sur - The Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP) has recorded an increase of more than P20 million worth of properties damaged in fire incidents in 2013 compared to that of the previous year within the area of jurisdiction of the Pagadian City Fire Station. Aside from this city, the Pagadian City Fire Station covers the seven nearby municipalities of this province that do not have firefighting equipment. This province has a total of 26 municipalities. The seven municipalities are: Dumalinao, Guipos, Kumalarang, Labangan, Lakewood, San Pablo, and Tigbao. Pagadian City Fire Marshall Sr. Insp. Reggy Olmedo disclosed Thursday that they have recorded a total of P29 million worth of properties damaged in fire incidents in 2013 as compared to only more than P7 million in 2012. Olmedo said this came about as a total of 76 structures were affected by fire

incidents in 2013. Thirty-three of the 76 structures were razed to the ground. In 2012, Olmedo said that only 24 of the total of 70 affected structures were razed to the ground. Olmedo disclosed that biggest destruction caused by a single incident last year was the fire incident in April at Camp Cesar Sang-an, which houses the Army’s 1st Infantry Division headquarters in Barangay Upper Pulacan, Labangan, this province. Seven structures including the ammunition and explosives storage were affected and the estimate to property damaged was placed at more than P20 million. However, he noted that only one vehicle was burned last year as compared to three in 2012. He said that a civilian was also killed in a fire incident and four were injured in 2013 compared to five injured--one fireman and four civilians--in the previous year.(PNA)

KIDAPAWAN CIT Y Government forces repulsed attempts by renegade Muslim rebels to o c c upy t h re e re mote communities in North Cotabato on New Year's Day, the Army here said. Captain Antonio Bulao, speaking for the Army's 602nd Infantry Brigade based in Carmen, North Cotabato, said the Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters (BIFF) suffered three wounded fighters when government forces clash with them in the borders of North Cotabato and Maguindanao on the eve of New Year. "One of our troops was slightly wounded," Bulao said. "Three of them were also hurt but carried by retreating lawless elements," he added. Colonel Dickson Hermoso, 6th Infantry " K a mp i l a n " D i v i s i o n spokesperson, said about 40 BIFF fighters attacked

hours before the new year the village of Nabalawag, Pikit, North Cotabato and engaged the soldiers of the 40th Infantry Battalion in a 20 minute firefight. "No casualty was reported from both sides," Hermoso said. During the early hours of Wednesday, BIFF guerillas also attacked a detachment of 7th Infantry Battalion in Barangay Kolambog, Pikit, North Cotabato but alert soldiers staved off the rebels' attempts to occupy the village. Bulao, citing reports from village officials in the barangays bordering Maguindanao and North Cotabato, said about five BIFF fighters were killed but the bodies were taken by retreating attackers toward Datu Piang in Maguindanao. Bulao also said that no evacuation of civilians were reported. (PNA)

ARMM has no single school project in Sulu SULU – Three years into his administration, Governor Mujiv Hataman of the Muslim autonomous region, has not built a single classroom in Sulu province. Sulu, one of five provinces under the autonomous region, was also v i s it e d on l y on c e by Hataman since he was elected as regional governor. The Department of Education in Sulu province also made several request to Hataman for the building of schools, but got no reply. Two letters were also submitted by Tim Arbis on, t he Prov inci a l Schools Superintendent, requesting lawyer Jamar Ku l ay a n , t h e A R M M E du c at i on S e c re t ar y, for a school building following the burning of the 10-classroom Hadji Hassiman Elementar y School in Higad in Jolo town that killed 2 students two years ago. A letter and the spot report on the fire inc i d e nt by t h e s ch o ol head Said Bakil and also endorsed by Jaton Jama, the school district in-charge, were also attached on Arbison’s letters. But up to now nothing has been done by Hataman on the shortage of classrooms in Sulu. Hataman was branded as “ghost buster” by President B enigno Aquino for allegedly “busting” 70 so-called fictitious teachers in the whole of ARMM, however, no one has been criminally charge for this. Even t he licensure examinations review for teachers is also being shouldered by the Sulu provincial government to help local educators pass the yearly examination by the Professional Regulation Commission. Professional educators are hired from Manila and then brought to Sulu to conduct the reviews for teachers. The provincial government also is giving free review classes in Sulu for civil eligibility examinations for those who wanted to work in the government. Tan has confirmed that school officials have n ot b e e n ge tt i ng t h e needed support from the ARMM, particularly in providing school building in different towns in Sulu. “The Department of

Education in Sulu needs school buildings. Up to now I was told there has been no single classroom built by the ARMM in Sulu. We are the one building schools and covered courts in different towns in the province because there is no help or projects from ARMM.” “The Sulu provincial government and even the municipal government and the barangay leaders are giving allowances to the teachers, to volunteer teachers to help them cope with their economic needs. We are not asking more (from the ARMM), we only want just enough f or t h e t e a c h e r s a n d students. We pity the youth because education is very important to everyone,” Tan told reporters. Many schools in Sulu were built using provinc i a l f u nds , i nclu d i ng chairs and tables and computers and even boat eng ines for far-f lung schools in island villages – one of them is the Kabukan Elementary School off Panglima Tahil town. Te a c h e r s h av e r e quested the Sulu provincial government a pump boat engine that they can use for their wooden boat in transp or t ing students and faculty members from the town to the island of Kabukan. Gabir Saraj a li, t he principal of Kawmpang Elementar y School in the town of Patikul, said the then Sulu Governor Sakur Tan, now the Vice Governor, donated 10 computer s ets, tables and chairs for their school in an effort to promote Infor mat ion technology among the young students in the southern province. Provincial engineers headed by Abdurasad Baih said Tan also told t h e m to d r aw a pl an for the school’s covered cour t w here students and teachers can hold their important activities comfortably. Baih said Kawmpang i s on l y on e of m a ny government-run schools i n Su lu t h at Tan d o nated equipment and supported. He said the provincial government has built many schools that benefit tens of thousands of Muslim students. (Mindanao Examiner)

Davao City breaks world ‘torotot’ blowers’ record

D

AVAO CITY – D av a o City unofficially set a new record for the Guinness Book of Records for the largest gathering of party blowers during the 1stTorotot (horn) Festival on December 31.

The event at Roxas Avenue, sponsored by Smart Communications and city government, gathered 7,568 torotot blowers against record-holder Japan’s 6,900. But Assistant Secretary Arturo Boncato Jr. of the Department of Tourism, said the results are still unofficial, as officials from the Guinness Book of Records have yet to validate the attendance for the event. The event, however, fell short of its expected 10,000 turnout, even as some barangays near the downtown area were enjoined to participate. The Liga ng mga Barangay had initially required 54 of the city’s 182 barangays to join the event. Smart Communication gave out prizes of up to P60,000 for the largest contingent. The city has celebrated 13 Christmases and New Years with no fireworks and pyrotechnics.

The firecracker ban was first implemented Christmas of 2001 but City Ordinance 060-02 banning the manufacture, sale, distribution, possession, or use of firecrackers or pyrotechnic devices, was enacted by the City Council only on October 15, 2002 and approved by Mayor Rodrigo Duterte on November 6.

Sam Milby still hopes to pursue his ‘American dream’ Kapamilya heartthrob Sam Milby is not about to ditch his dream of making it big abroad. Almost two years ago, Sam temporarily moved to New York to audition for shows and he managed to impress an American TV network executive in one of his US tours. According to a recent interview on the set of Kimmy Dora 3, Sam still hopes to try his luck in Hollywood and he recognizes the fact that an indie film might just be his ticket to reach that dream. “I would love that and I think what’s great about the indie movies especially here in sa Pilipinas is that they’re getting international recognition and I think one of the biggest successes in indie movies also is On the Job,” he explained.

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.

They’re not looking for the typical na gwapo na white. They’re really looking for diversity and that was what I was told when I was doing auditions in the States na ‘yun talaga ang hinahanap nila. It’s a really good time right now to do indie movies and hopefully use that as a gateway,” the actor said.

“The owner Vilma Go, has yet to submit an estimated amount of losses although the police has estimated the losses at P 5 million to P 10 million,” Gonda said. Senior Insp. Ariel Pontillas, of the Theft and Robbery Section, said that the suspects could be members of the dreaded “Acetylene Gang” who robbed jewelry stores and pawn shops by making holes and using acetylene to cut through the stores. Pontillas said that the police investigators recovered some equipment left behind by the suspects, except for the expensive blowtorch tube. He said that the oxygen and gas tanks, drills and tools were left and that the police have identified the tools as having been bought from a mall. Occupants of nearby buildings reported that they heard pounding on the walls on December 28, 2013 but take the noise for granted believing that the pounding was just the usual carpentry in another building. Witnesses at the Inn told police that the gang might have come from as far as Luzon since they spoke “Tagalog.” The police were able to retrieve photos of the suspects which were stored in the CCTV cameras installed by the Inn owners. Pontillas said that during a lineup of photos of suspected members of the Acetylene Gang, personnel at the Inn identified the suspects who checked in at the Inn almost a week ago. He said a manhunt of the suspect, believed to be still in Cagayan de Oro City, have been been launched on Tuesday.

on safer alternatives for celebrating New Year’s Day through local ordinances or enactment or amendment of existing national laws,” Coloma said at a media briefing. Coloma said fireworks have posed a threat to safety

and health, as the gunpowder inside them can cause tetanus. Worse, he said such fireworks harm the environment because of their emissions. “Kaya nga po ang panawagan natin ay para mag-

karoon ng consensus at paglahok ang lahat ng mga sektor ng ating lipunan. Kailangan po magkaroon ng ugnayan at konsultasyon para naman po marinig lahat ng iba’t ibang panukala at maiwasan ang mga sinabi ninyong unintended

or deleterious consequences na dapat din pong huwag payagang maganap (This is why our call is for consensus and the participation of all sectors in society. We must have coordination and consultations so all sides will be heard and there will be no

unintended or deleterious consequences),” he said. On the other hand, Coloma said all concerned sectors should discuss an effective deterrent to using fireworks, considering many Filipinos want to greet the New Year with noise. Meanwhile, Coloma said the Philippine National Police continues to implement the regulation of firearms, with President Benigno Aquino III himself stressing the need for it. “Tanggap natin ang panukala na kailangan higpitan ng pamahalaan ang pag-regulate sa paggamit ng mga armas (We agree there is a need to be stricter in regulating the use of firearms),” he added.

communications and other broadband services during flights.” Previous airline policies prohibit the use of electronic devices as it was seen to cause interference in the plane’s electronic systems. But CAAP Director General William Hotchkiss III said with today’s technology can deliver mobile services in the air “safely and reliably”. Hotchkiss though explained that the use of electronic devices would be “conditional”. The first condition is that the use of laptops for Internet and cellular phones for messages will be allowed when aircraft doors are still open. The second condition is that when aircraft doors are closed, transmitting portable electronic devices such as mobile phones should be on silent mode, and “may be used only for short-message service (SMS) or Internet.” The memo added that “voice communications are not allowed except for the use of GSMOBA (Global System for Mobile communication On Board Aircrafts) provided its use does not interfere with the orderly conduct of flight.” CAAP said the use of such devices will be allowed “unless the Pilot-In-Command and or Senior Cabin Crew would specifically announce on the public address system (PAS) its prohibition.” The memo said all devices should be turned off when the airline is refueling. Other devices allowed by CAAP on flight are games on electronic devices provided they are played on silent mode and MP3s played with headphones. CAAP also showed an article to Davao Today that said an independent industry study by RTCA (Radio Technical Commission for Aeronautics) in 1992 showed “no interference and eventually eventually recommended allowing the use of laptops, gaming devices

and music players. Still, it suggested the precaution of banning the use of any and all devices during the critical takeoff and landing phases. “ (John Rizle L. Saligumba/ davaotoday.com)

He said the proposed extension answers his dream of finishing his studies. “It’s my dream to finish my studies and earn a job so that I can help my parents and my younger sister in the future.” Selection criteria The selection of children aged 3-18 for education monitoring will be based on the following existing policy on the selection of children beneficiaries which include son, daughter,

grandson and granddaughter of the household head: for Sets 1-5, the children beneficiaries selected by the system will continue to be monitored; for Sets 6-7 and replacement; the household shall select from among the children included in the household roster; for replacement and additional children beneficiaries to complete the three children limit per household, the household shall select from among the children included in the household roster.

China importing more bananas after ‘Yolanda’ DAVAO City––The damage caused by super typhoon Yolanda on China’s banana industry has somehow brought some good news to Filipino growers. According to Ireneo Dalayon, executive officer and president of the Federation of Cooperatives in Mindanao (Fedco), China has increased demand for bananas. “China was also hit by Yolanda,” he said. Dalayon said that banana growers in China sustained 80-percent damage, especially in Hainan and Guangzhou. Taiwan, too, was affected. A total of 300,000 hectares of China’s banana farms were reportedly affected. He said that the local banana exporters are enjoying a better price

for banana exports in the region. He added that China was turning into a lucrative market compared with others such as Japan, the Middle East and the United States because of the price and ease of shipping. “Unlike shipping to the United States or the Middle East, products can get to China in as short as three to five days,” Dalayon noted. He said that the price for cavendish banana is good for exporters, who have been faced with bad luck in the recent years due to sigatoka, Panama disease, as well as typhoon Pablo. Demand in 2014 is expected to rise in China and other Yolandaaffected areas with banana import industries, he said. --MindaNews
