Local leaders call on kagayanons to be superheroes for the planet CAGAYAN de Oro City––WWF’s Earth Hour found plenty of allies in Cagayan de Oro City as local officials and leaders in energy conservation and sustainability called on Kagayanons to use the superhero within them to help save the planet. Earth Hour is a global environmental movement of World Wildlife Fund (WWF), encouraging households and businesses to turn off non-essential lights for one hour on the last Saturday of March to raise awareness about the need to take action on climate change. From a symbolic movement in Sydney, Australia, it has swept across the globe to engage 158 countries.

The Philippines is a staunch supporter of Earth Hour. In Cagayan de Oro, the main staging site was SM City Cagayan de Oro. Led by Cagayan de Oro Mayor Oscar S. Moreno, the Earth Hour celebration saw the lights switched off across the city from 8:30pm to 9:30pm on March 29. Other Earth Hour supporters included Cagayan Electric Power & Light Company, Inc. (CEPALCO) Senior Vice President Ralph Paguio; renewable energy expert from Italy, Gabriele Boccia; and Primavera Residences developer, ItalPinas Euroasian Design and Eco-Development Corp. (ITPI) CEO Arch. Romolo V. Nati.

In his speech, Moreno said: “Saving the earth and preserving the environment is not just a one man’s job and not a simple thing to do. All of us can help, and I am sure we can in some measure.” Paguio thanked the energy conservation efforts of some residences and commercial establishments in the city, calling them “silent heroes.” He said that despite the power interruptions being experienced in the rest of Mindanao, Cagayan de Oro so far has had no need to implement rotating brownouts. “Earth Hour continues to become an even more significant

Army doubts arms deal involving US Senator Yee By CRIS DIAZ, Executive Editor

CAMP Evangelista, Cagayan De Oro City––The military on Thursday doubted that the reported high powered firearms that were smuggled to the United States came from the Philippines, specifically in Mindanao, a junior officer said. California State Senator Leland Yee, 65, was arrested last March for alleged smuggling of illegal firearms amount to US $ 2.5 million from the Muslims in the Philippines through an undercover FBI agent.

California State Senator Leland Yee, 65, was arrested last March for alleged smuggling of illegal firearms amount to US $ 2.5 million from the Muslims in the Philippines through an undercover FBI agent. Capt. Christian C. Uy, spokesperson of the army’s Public Affairs Division, said that there were insinuations that a military with the rank of an army Captain report-

edly facilitated the shipment of the contraband with the International Container Port Terminal in Misamis Oriental as the transshipment origin. Uy said that the military is denying that its officer is involved in the incredible report. “The report alleged that the smuggled firearms were of Israeli made Tabor,” Uy added. “The Armed Forces of

the Philippines (AFP) has no Israeli made firearms of Tabor model in its arsenal,” he said. Uy, however, said that the AFP’s counter-intelligence unit (CIU) that spies on active military personnel would also be able to identify the reported army captain cited in the report. If they could provide the name of the army captain, it would be easier for the

CIU to identify the suspect out of more than 500 army captains currently stationed in Mindanao, Uy said. He said that while the AFP in Mindanao denies the report and involvement in the smuggling of firearms to the US from Mindanao, the military has started to investigate the report in order to clear the image of the AFP.

BSP-Misor holds peace jamboree A Happy Misor Peace Jamboree in Sta. Ana, Tagoloan started last April 1, 2014 and will end on April 5, 2014. The Peace Jamboree, with the theme “Exploring Peace in Diversity”, aims to revitalize the Scouting Movement and promote lasting peace in Mindanao while supporting the tourism program of the Province of Misamis Oriental. This is the first youth activity in the whole of Mindanao after the Landmark Signing of the

Comprehensive Agreement of the Bangsamoro. This is the second and the biggest so far of the Scouting activities initiated under the leadership of Vice Governor Joey G. Pelaez in his capacity as the Boy Scouts of the Philippines – Misamis Oriental Council Chairman. The first one was the A Happy MisOr Invitational Jamborette Skills O-Rama and Kawan Holiday held in Naawan, Misamis Oriental last De-

cember 5-8, 2013. Vice Governor Pelaez believes that Scouting is important because it provides meaningful activities for the Scouts and an avenue for leadership and values formation, enabling them to become well-rounded individuals, self-reliant and productive citizens of the country. To fully capture a Happy MisOr, Vice Governor Pelaez invited artists and performers such as Tippy

Dos Santos (Galema), Yves Flores (Got to Believe), Myrtle Sarrosa (PBB Teen Edition 4), and Morissette Amon (The Voice of the Philippines). Local performing artists like El Fuego Fire Dancers and Vital Signs also performed during the Chairman’s Night on April 3, 2014.

rocked the House of Representatives and the Senate and different departments and agencies of government. For a neophyte congressman who jointed Congress with idealism and high hopes for the country, it was such a great disappointment.” The young solon pointed out that “those who get involved in corruption and abuse of power in high places of government are people with sterling academic credentials. These are people who went to the best universities in the country and earned their graduate degrees from Ivy League institutions abroad.” Fortun said: “We are surprised why they get involved in anomalies like

these. Something must be wrong somewhere. They forget an essential element of education. That is, VALUES. And I can only say, notwithstanding all those feathers in their caps, they have not acquired genuine education, after all.” Fortun paid tribute to the founders of Saint Joseph Institute of Technology for steering the institution to greater heights from a very humble beginning in 1971. “As commencement speaker, I am expected to inspire you. Honestly, looking at you right now and reflecting on how you have been molded by an institution that has itself been molded by enormous challenges, and has grown to

become a premiere institution. I am the one who has been inspired. Indeed, you need not look elsewhere for a source of inspiration. SJIT is a great inspiration, not only to you, but to all of us in the region. SJIT is an inspiring embodiment pf determination, courage, hard work, perseverance and excellence,” the lawmaker said. “We are all witnesses to SJIT’s remarkable growth as an institution of higher learning. In its pursuit to become a prominent landmark that it is now, the values of rectitude and integrity have always guided its labors for advancement. I repeat, RECTITUDE AND INTEGRITY. These, you should not forget,” the solon stressed.

Fortun to grads: Keep values high BUTUAN City––“The true barometer in acquiring genuine educaton is by keeping high and strengthening values.” This was the gist of the speech delivered by Agusan del Norte First District Rep. Lawrence Lemuel Fortun to the 726 graduates of Saint Joseph Institure of Technology during its 42nd Commencement Exercises here. Fortun recalled that when he assumed office as representative of his district, he was met with “probably the worst scandals congress has ever been confronted with.

How to ensure agricultural productivity and food security To ensure our country’s food security, the only option is to maximize agricultural . New technologies on soil and water conservation must be applied by concerned government agencies, and an up-to-date approaches for sustainable land management is the order of the day.The recent approval of the “Soil and Water Conservation Act of 2013”, contained in HB 2000, by the Committee on Agriculture and Food and, recently by the Committee on Appropriations is a great development for this concern. According to its proponent, the re-filed bill aims to promote soil and water conservation technologies and practices through the National Soil and Water Conservation Program, with local government units and marginalized farmers in rain-fed uplands as primary target sectors. Under the program, environmentfriendly rainwater harvesting structures will be constructed in the middle and upper reaches of the uplands and watershed with predominantly rolling to hilly topography. The depressions and small inland valleys in these areas can be harnessed for small water reservoir development which would then be utilized by poor upland farming communities for agricultural production. The proposed program will also include watershed protection, development and management as major components. Concomitant to water conservation activities are soil conservation activities. There are various soil conservation

Editorial measures that could be implemented in the uplands to protect the environment while attaining agricultural productivity. These will reduce the risks of natural disasters and enhance the adoption mechanism of farmers and communities to climate change. Moreover, it will also enhance food security, improve farm household income, protect resource base and/or environment and prepare the community against the threats of an upcoming natural calamity, according to the measure. Sustainable upland development is one of the priority thrusts of the government under Executive Order 606 (Pursuing Sustainable Upland Development Anchoring on Food, Wood and Non-Wood Security and Economic Productivity). Rainwater harvesting can contribute to the attainment of sustainable upland development by involving local communities who will manage and maintain both the rainwater harvesting systems and the local watersheds, which are important in recharging ground and surface water that will feed into the water impounding dams. It can be noted that our country has an average annual rainfall of about 2,4000 mm which is enough to meet the annual water demand for crop production. However, this amount of rainfall is not evenly distributed throughout the year in most parts of the country. In

some areas, there is too much rainfall, resulting in excessive surface run-off, severe erosion, siltation of rivers, and flooding during the rainy season. And in other parts of the country, there may be too little to provide a sustained base flow to support crop production especially during the dry season, particularly in the upland areas. The situation is further aggravated by the continuous degradation of watershed, subjected to various forms of degradation such as indiscriminate logging and slash-and-burn practices (kaingin). These resulted in the loss of forest cover from 17 million hectares in 1934 to only about 5.33 million hectares in most recent estimates in 2003. If only properly managed, watersheds can provide a continuing flow of water to a particular water body (river, creeks and streams) and to man-made “water use outlets” like dams, irrigation systems, or water supply take off points. It is deplorable that about 45% of the arable lands in the country have been moderately to severely eroded, triggering the movement of subsistence farmers to marginal lands with the hope of meeting their day-to-day food requirements. Approximately, , 5.2 million hectares are severely eroded and 8.5 million hectares are moderately eroded resulting in 30-50% reduction in soil productivity and water retention capacity which could result to drought and other water-related problems.

Under the surface

Think a Minute… Remember Greg Louganis? The young, strong, superstar athlete who won gold medals in all his events at both the 1984 and 1988 Olympics. He was the first athlete in history to do it, and was elected to the Olympic Hall of Fame. But at the Olympics, no one ever suspected that under the surface Greg Louganis’ body was full of AIDS. It’s true that you really cannot know what’s inside a person just from looking on the outside. Many people are not what they appear to be. For example, that tough football or rugby player you know may actually still be an insecure little boy on the inside, because he could never be good enough for his hard, strict father. That shy young woman you see

Think A Minute Jhan Tiafau Hurst around town might still be a broken, hurting little girl, because she was abused by her uncle or stepfather when she was young. Maybe even that 60-year-old political leader or successful businessman is still full of hurt and anger from when he was badly treated as a child because of his skin color, or because he grew up in a poor family. Many people look strong and mature on the outside,

but inside they’re still hurting emotionally and need healing. They still have deep wounds, scars and painful memories of terrible things that were said or done to them when they were young children or teenagers. Friend, if you’ve been living with pain, fears or anger from what people said or did to you in the past, these hurts and bad memories can be like chains that hold you in

prison emotionally. Well, Jesus Christ sure knows how you feel. Jesus is probably the most hurt, abused person in history. His own family thought He was crazy, and His own people had Him tortured and killed as the worst of criminals. But not only does Jesus understand and feel your pain, He’s also the One Who can heal your broken heart and painful memories. So today, why don’t you put your whole life, including your painful past, into the strong, healing hands of Jesus? He’ll even help you forgive those people who hurt you. Then, you’ll finally be free from your emotional pain and prison to start living the full, new life Jesus has planned for you. Just Think a Minute…

Misuari angry over Jabida massacre WHEN the Jabida Massacre was revealed, Nur Misuari was very angry and one of the reasons to quit teaching at the University of the Philippines. Immediately made series of secret meetings among the different Muslim tribes who were the sons of prominent Muslim families of Mindanao who are studying in Metro Manila. The bulked of his recruits were the Tausogs, Maranaos, Maguindanaos, Yakans, Samals and other Muslims in Southern Philippines. They were trained in Malaysia of jungle warfare and the graduates were called Top 90s. Later years some of the recruits were trained in Libya. Misuar i named his group as Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF). It was known when Martial Law was declared and the MNLF simultaneously attacked the Philippine Constabulary in Camp Keithley in Marawi City and other parts of Mindanao killing several Philippine Army and Constabulary Soldiers. During the time in the late 60’s strongman former President Ferdinand Marcos was very unpopular president as almost daily rallies were staged by the different student groups, farmers, groups and labor sectors in Manila and other

Mindanao crossfire Al Quirante regions of the country. Political killings were rampant in the country and jailed those who will oppose him. On that time, the Sabah (North Borneo) was very hot issue. One survivor of the Massacre was fished out by fisherman with bullet wound in his leg and was brought to Cavite Governor Montano. Montano also informed the late Congressman Rashid Lucman and the late Senator Benigno Ninoy Aquino of the incident that all the Tausogs trainees whose planned to invade Sabah were all killed by Machine Gun Fire. Gov. Montano related the story of the survivor to the Solons that the secret training of the Tausogs in Corrigidor was aborted as the trainees made a mutiny over the harsh treatment and not paying of their salaries and not giving them good food by the AFP training officers. A congressional investigation resulted that President Marcos have given a green light to invade and

reclaim Sabah with the agreement of the Sultanate of Sulu who was the owner of Sabah based on documents presented to the media. The armed conflict between the MNLF and the Government continued leaving more than 100,000 deaths, destroying properties worth millions innocent civilian caught in the crossfire. A peace agreement was forged between Misuari and President Fidel V. Ramos in 1996 and convincing Misuari to run for ARMM Governor. Misuari won handedly, but two MNLF commanders broke-away f rom t h e m ai ns t re am MNLF. They formed their own armed group Hushien Salamat formed his own armed group Moro Islamic Liberation Front while Dimasankay Pundato formed Moro National Liberation Front-Reformist. To ease tension, President Ramos appointed Pundato as Executive Director of Muslim Affairs

while Salamat continued his armed struggle against the government. Just recently, a agreement on the Bangsamoro was signed by the new MILF Chairman Murad Ibrahim. In an interview with Nur Misuari in 1996 in Pagadian City and in 1997 in Dapitan City, Misuari pointed out that the Tripoli Agreement must be followed. Misuari said “There were voluminous projects endorsed by the different Assemblymen of the Southern Philippine Council for Peace and Development(SPCPD) but until now I am still waiting for the funds”. It was learned that only few projects were implemented because of Lack of Funds. In his televised statement, MILF chair Murad Ibrahim said that the agreement was for the whole Bangsamoro, meaning all bona-fide residents of the area that includes Lumads and Christians are qualified to run for any positions. The political reform is the root-cause of the Muslim dominated regions must be address. Can an ordinary poor brilliant Muslim win in an election? I doubt! Only the traditional Muslim Politicians will dominate in any elections! The cycle of Trapos will still exist. Will Mindanao improve with this kind of administration?

They have forsaken the Lord, they have spurned the Holy One of Israel and turned their backs on him… ” (Isaiah 1:4, the Holy Bible). -oooOMBUDSMAN DECISION ON “PORK” UNCONSTITUTIONAL: It would seem that not all Filipinos---particularly Vice President Jejomar Binay and Lipa Archbishop Ramon Arguelles---are happy with the Ombudsman decision to file plunder charges before the Sandiganbayan against Senators Juan Ponce Enrile, Jinggoy Estrada, and Bong Revilla, in connection with the P10 billion pork barrel scam, and this maybe rightly so. For, if only political enemies are prosecuted and persecuted with non-bailable cases to prevent them from becoming threats to political favorites of those in power

come election time, the filing of the plunder cases could even be considered illegal and unconstitutional and should be struck down. Why am I saying this? Well, under its Section 1, Art. III, the 1987 Constitution---the Constitution of then former President Cory Aquino---directs and mandates: no person shall be deprived of the equal protection of the laws. In other words, the Cory Constitution---which should be obeyed to the hilt by everyone especially by her son---prohibits selectivity in enforcing the laws or in the administration of justice. -oooUNEQUAL PROTECTION OF THE LAWS: Yet, what did the Ombudsman do in the P10 billion pork barrel scam? It became selective in filing cases, despite the fact that the Commission on Audit had come up with equally indubitable proof that allies of President Aquino themselves See DECISION, page 15

IOCON, Zamboanga Del Norte -- A resident of Siocon was abducted by three unidentified armed men in the vicinity of a gas station in Barangay Poblacion, Siocon, Zamboanga del Norte, Wednesday (April 2) evening.

Initial information revealed that Michael Co, 27 years old, a resident of Barangay Poblacion, was forc-

ibly taken by his abductors, frisking him to a maroon KIA sportage vehicle and sped away towards Barangay

Latabon, Siocon direction. Motive of the abduction is still unknown and the perpetrators have not yet contacted the victim’s family. No individual or group has claimed responsibility for the abduction. Tenth Infantry Battalion commander Lt. Col. Leonel Nicolas, based in Labason, Zamboanga del Norte, said that they have alerted all security forces and coordinated

with the police headquarters in the area after receiving report on the kidnapping. First Infantry Division chief Maj. Gen. Felicito Virgilio Trinidad Jr. directed concerned military units in the area to help the local police to pursue the perpetrators for the immediate and safe rescue of the victim, and support law enforcement operations by the Philippine National Police in the area.

Gunmen abduct son of gas depot owner in Zamboanga town

DIPOLOG CITY – Four gunmen barged in a gasoline station and abducted the son of the owner in the southern Philippine province of Zamboanga del Norte. Police said two other gunmen served as lookouts while their companions dragged the 27-year old Michael Co out of the Petron

gas station in downtown Siocon late Wednesday. Inspector Dahlan Samuddin, a regional police spokesman, said the abductors escaped with their victim in a vehicle that waited outside the gas station. He said the vehicle was later recovered by pursuing policemen in Latabon

village also in Siocon town. No individual or group claimed responsibility for the abduction, but Samuddin said police forces were deployed to track down and rescue the victim. “There is an investigation and hot pursuit operation is being conducted to rescue the victim,” Samuddin said,

adding they are investigating the motive of the abduction. It was unknown if the abductors have contacted Co’s family. The province is a known lair of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front and the communist rebel group New People’s Army. (With a report from Ely Dumaboc)

PDEA-11: Still no one to sue for cocaine bricks shipment in Davao

D

AVAO CITY – The Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA)Davao, the lead agency of the Task Force Cocaine investigating the cocaine shipments discovered at the Sumifru Wharf in Tibungco here, said there is still no one to sue for the entry of the illegal drugs.

PDEA-Davao public information officer Noli Nephi Dimaandal said they are still in the process of tracing where the container van came from. He said PDEA-Davao cannot just tag officers of the Maersk Shipping Line whose containers were

used to store the bricks of cocaine, since they cannot establish if the officials of the company had any knowledge about the loading of the illegal drugs. A total of 56 bricks of cocaine were already turned over to the PDEA-Davao for examination, yet authori-

TAGUM City - Tagumeños will fully enjoy a smooth ride in the city’s major thoroughfares as the local government embarked on road improvement projects through asphalt overlaying of major roads. Recently, Mayor Allan L. Rellon joined the personnel of the City Engineer’s Office and ABC President Prospero Estabillo, Jr. during the inspection and blessing of the city’s road improvement

projects in Dominggo Village, Senangote Village and Osmeña, Quezon and Quirante II Streets, respectively, which carries a budget to the tune of 2,500,000 pesos. The asphalt overlaying of roads was done by administration since the LGU has its own asphalt mixing plant located inside the motorpool in Barangay Magugpo East. The asphalt overlaying was delayed for a year since the asphalt paver was not opera-

ties are still searching for the eight remaining bricks. Dimaandal assured that if they cannot file a case for violation of the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002 against the source of the illegal drugs, they will press charges against those caught in possession of the remaining bricks. "We still have nobody to charge since the investigation of the task force is still ongoing. But if we catch a person who will not surrender the cocaine, we will sue that person," Dimaandal said. He also presented the dangers of cocaine use and

the penalties that will be imposed on those arrested in possession of the illegal drugs. "The strength or purity of the cocaine increases the risk of overdose. It can lead to coma and death. Using this kind of drugs can also cause psychosis, paranoid delusions, hallucinations, becomes aggressive and it can drive the user to commit suicide," Dimaandal said. He said those arrested for possession may be sentenced to life imprisonment and pay a fine ranging from P500,000 to P10 million. (PNA)

tional due to damage, said Engr. Edgar Ruyeras, head of the asphalt-industrial plant of CEO Tagum. He said that his team is currently working on the asphalt overlaying in 42 roads, conducted primarily through his office’s initiative and through the requests of barangay captains. The City Engineer’s Office also installed streetlights along Roxas Extension ad-

jacent to Rizal Elementary School. Aside from road improvement, the City Engineering Office is also working on the rehabilitation and culvert lining of drainage. This is still part of the comprehensive agenda on infrastructure of the local chief executive stipulated under his EAGLE WINGS Program. (Gleiza Delgado of CIO Tagum)

Raid yields chemicals, blasting caps in Southern Philippines DAVAO CITY – Philippine authorities have seized chemical fertilizers and cyanide, including dozens of blasting caps, commonly used by illegal gold miners in Compostela Valley province in Mindanao region. Security officials said military and government agents, armed with search warrants, swooped down in Nabunturan town on March 31 and arrested several people in connection with the illegal selling of the chemicals. The raiders seized at least 275 kilos of ammonium nitrate, 569 pieces of blasting caps and 1,132 meters of time fuse and three kilos of cyanide in the town, according to army Captain Alberto Caber, a spokesman for the Eastern Mindanao Command. “Authorities are still investigating those arrested to determine if they are communist rebels or selling those illegal chemicals to the New People’s Army,” Caber told the regional newspaper Mindanao Examiner. He said the operations were carried out by soldiers and members of the National Bureau of Investigation and

the local police force. “All the chemicals were handed over to the Explosive Ordnance Division of the Philippine Army for proper documentation,” he said, adding those arrested will be criminally charged in court for the illegal sale, manufacture and possession of explosives. Lt. Gen. Ricardo Rainier Cruz, the Eastern Mindanao Command chief, commended the soldiers who took part in the operations that led to the recovery of chemicals. The military did not say how many people were arrested in the operations, but the province is a known goldrush area in the southern Philippines where tens of thousands of illegal miners continue to operate using homemade explosives and cyanide to extract gold and silver from the earth. Cruz said the chemicals are also being used by rebels in the manufacture of landmines and homemade bombs they used to attack military and police targets in the region. The rebels have been fighting for decades for the establishment of a communist state in the country. (Mindanao Examiner)

The use of ICT is changing teaching in several ways. With ICT, teachers are able to create their own material and thus have more control over the material used in the classroom than they have had in the past. Rather than deskilling teachers as some scholars claim, it seems that technology is requiring teachers to be more creative in customizing their own material. Also, using Web pages to enhance an activity demonstrates that technology can be used to complement other aspects of good teaching rather than replace them. It is evident that involving students in the creation of useful material as a part of a learning exercise is a way to make school more meaningful for students. One program which is potentially effective is the use of Power Point presentations. Teachers experienced how it helps them with their teaching. The use of peripheral devices on computers to help with physics experiments again shows how ICT can be used to aid the learning process and help students focus on higher level concepts rather than less meaningful tasks. The changes caused by the introduction of information technology into learning environments, however, are not without some potential problems which must be considered by administrators. The use of information and communication technology (ICT) such as Internet applications, CDROMs, video technology and various computer attachments and software programs have caused many changes in society. These changes have not just been of a technical nature but more importantly of a structural nature.

Many of the major institutions of our society have changed and the way we live our daily lives have been impacted. However, the impact on education may just be starting to be felt as teachers integrate this new technology into their teaching. In the early stages of the use of ICT in teaching,, teachers could give many different and specific examples of how technology had changed their work. A number of things were being done with Web sites, from giving students notes which one teacher described as a “low end thing,” to getting students to create their own Web pages. One teacher was using a Web site to enhance an actual field trip. The Web site introduces students to the animals and tells them what they are going to be doing while on the field trip. It shows them techniques they can use to analyze the ecosystem and record the data. The prior preparation through the Web site helps students benefit from the actual field trip. Several teachers mentioned that they used Power Point and other computer programs to improve their presentation of material to class. Teachers explained that technology enabled them to deliver more materials to students and it also eliminated several basic problems such as; poor hand writing, poor artistic skill, contrast, lighting, and visibility. Teachers can also make extensive use of software programs to help teach science subjects. The students go into the laboratory and collect their data using the computer. Then they use word processing programs along with Excel to do graphs and presentations. The software allows the students to collect different kinds of data using various attachments that are plugged into the computer. Using computer technology, students have more time to explore

beyond the mechanics of counting dots and setting up the experiment. It actually lets them look at it and understand the concepts better. Another teacher made the point that resource-based teaching or resource-based learning is almost becoming “seamless, almost natural” in everything that teachers do because information is becoming easier to access. The use of information technology has changed school administration in several ways. One teacher explained that when she started teaching six years ago, it was not expected that teachers know how to type their own test. Now teachers are expected to know how to use word processors and have their tests done in a proper format. There are however, some concerns: Maintenance. The problem most often noted by teachers was the maintenance of the equipment needed to operate a technologically enhanced school; Inequalities. Another frequently mentioned problem was the

disparities between students who have access to computers at home and those who do not.; Need for training. Teachers provided evidence of the importance of the efforts in-school to promote professional development in integrating information technology into classroom teaching.; Information Overload. Teachers recognized that sometimes students are overwhelmed with the amount of information available and with the task of filtering through the information; Pace of Change and Stress. Teachers have a hard time keeping up with the pace of change. One teacher said , “People are stressed. Families are stressed”, and she felt this level of stress is being transferred to young students. Teachers’ Time. Teachers stated that information technology was placing more demands on their time. Teachers noted that extra time was needed to learn new software and also to create new things for teaching because greater expectations were being placed on them.

Menarini launches “Commit to Control PE” advocacy for Filipino couples

M

enarini, the world’s largest Italian biopharmaceutical company in the world, launched the “Commit to Control PE” advocacy for couples recently at the Marquee Hall of Edsa Shangri-La Manila. With the aim to educate Filipino couples on the issue of premature ejaculation (PE), Menarini invited celebrity couples and medical practitioners to discuss the issue and provide significant insights and suggestions on how to deal and overcome the disorder. According to Dr. Cai de Quiroz, medical director of Menarini, one in three men suffer from PE and that 20% of relationships and marriages break down because of it. Perceived causes of PE among Filipino men

PRISAA REGION-10 GEARS UP FOR THE 2014 NATIONAL GAMES

I

n its bid to move up in the medal standings, the member schools of the Private Schools Athletic Association (PRISAA) of Region 10 are fielding more athletes in the latest edition of the annual PRISAA National Collegiate Games this coming April 6-12, 2014 in Tagum City, Davao del Norte. This year, a 274 strong contingent will comprise the delegation of athletes, coaches, staff, officials and school representatives. Heading the Region 10 delegation is PRISAA Regional President Dr. Mariano M. Lerin. Fueled by their passion and dedication towards excellence, PRISAA Region-10 continues to bring forward their mission of providing opportunities for young students to excel and become recognized not just in academics but in sports as well. Region 10 boasts of a growing membership in the PRISAA with current members of 14 schools

and universities and aims to become even bigger in the coming years. Schools include Liceo de Cagayan University, Misamis University, Pilgrim Christian College, Christ The King College –Gingoog, Gingoog City Colleges, Gingoog Christian College, St. Peter’s College – Iligan, Iligan Medical Center College, Fatima College – Camiguin, Mountain View College – Bukidnon, San Agustin Institute of Technology – Bukidnon, San Isidro College- Bukdinon, Misamis Oriental Institute of Science & Technology-Bukidnon and North Central Mindanao College. Aside from the sports events, cultural competitions such as vocal solo and vocal duet will also take place as well as the National Mutya ng PRISAA 2014.

both partners. Popular psychologist on sex therapy Dr. Margie Holmes and Dr. Dennis Serrano of the UP-PGH also provided a scientific perspective on the issue. “Men with PE often report emotional and

rel at i onship dist ress and some avoid pursuing sexual relationships altogether because of PE-related embarrassment. But the issue is not isolated to men as female partners also experience emotional and psychological distress which often leads to unwanted stress in the relationship,” says RJ Ledesma, who hosted the launch. The good news is that couples do not need to suffer from the effects of the disorder to their relationship. “An effective solution is coming soon. You may consult your doctor or visit the website we built to help sufferers find the doctor for him so he gets the proper treatment,” says Dr. de Quiroz.

Binay was absolutely correct when he said: “…cases should also be filed against other officials mentioned in the 2013 Commission on Audit (COA) report on (pork) misuse, which includes allies of President Aquino, like Iloilo Representative Niel Tupas Jr. and former Cibac party-list representative and Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (Tesda) chief Joel Villanueva. “‘If it stops with the filing of the plunder cases against three senators who are not political allies and confines itself to the (Janet) Napoles case, it will create the impression of being selective, and that political partisanship – not justice – is the sole motivation behind these charges,’” Binay explained. -oooOVER-SPEEDING AIRPLANES? Can somebody please clarify: is it alright if an airplane manages to cut its travel time by as much as 37 minutes, arriving 37 minutes ahead of schedule? Does that not signify overspeeding? Or maybe even recklessness? I am asking these questions because, in my 7 p.m. Air Asia Zest trip from Puerto Princesa City to Manila on April 02, 2014, the crew announced we arrived 37 minutes ahead of time. Be that as it may, I am commending Air Asia Zest and other local airlines, including Cebu Pacific Air, with their Internet check-in facilities. It is indeed a big help in checking in without hassles, enabling passengers to avoid long queues, and in ensuring confirmation of flights and availability of seats. Congratulations!!! -oooUNTOUCHABLES AT DOTC: So why is the Aquino government selective, and is turning a deaf ear and a blind eye, as it were, with the complaint of Czech Ambassador Joseph Rychtar that officials of the Dpeartment of Communications and Transportation asked for US $30 million from a Czeck railway firm for the supply for supply of MRT cars? The DOTC officials are untouchables, because they are friends of the powerful and the mighty? -oooREACTIONS? Please call me at 0917 984 24 68, 0918 574 0193, 0922 833 43 96.

Department of Education’s (DepEd) Alternative Learning System (ALS) on Wednesday. Jane Sullivan, ALS coordinator for the Kidapawan City Schools Division, said the two lolas were among

the 101 ALS graduates this year. B oth completed the five-month schooling that started November last year, Sullivan said. Abaratigue said she is contemplating on pursuing a college degree. During the ceremonies, she told fellow graduates that in education, “there is neither old nor young.” “Even if you’re already a senior citizen, do not waste time in search for new knowledge,” she added. Abaratigue has represented 93 high school graduates during the graduation rites. Kidapawan Mayor Joseph Evangelista, who chairs the Local School Board, said the ALS high school graduates, including Abaratigue and Aliling, would be given opportunities to complete tertiary education under the city government’s scholarship program. In fact, according to Sullivan, they are already accepting applications from ALS graduates who signified interest in pursuing a college degree. Sullivan said the ALS program has already produced a number of graduates who became successful in their chosen fields. She cited the case of Christy Benlot who pursued a degree of Bachelor of Science in Education after she completed high school under the ALS in 2010. Benlot, according to Sullivan, finished tertiary studies in March 2013 and passed the Licensure Examination for Teachers last January. Benlot was guest speaker during the ALS completion ceremonies held Wednesday at the Kidapawan City Pilot Elementary School gymnasium. A report from MindaNews

symptoms after eating the entrails and meat of several horses that reportedly died of still unknown causes. Aside from the five fatalities, whose identities were still being verified, he said 16 other residents were brought to the provincial hospital in Isulan town after complaining of severe headache and showing poisoning symptoms. “We’re still determining what really caused the death of the five victims but it was initially traced to the horse meat that they had consumed,” he said. Lamprea said he has sent a team of surveillance and medical personnel to the area on Thursday to look into the matter and provide the necessary interventions for the affected residents. Nestor Casador, Sultan Kudarat provincial agriculturist, said residents of Sitio Parreno, Barangay Tinalon in Senator Ninoy Aquino slaughtered five horses in the area last week. He said the owner of the horses reportedly decided to have them slaughtered

after they turned weak and died due to still unknown causes. Citing a report from their veterinary unit, he said the horses were possibly poisoned or infected with an undetermined toxic disease. “According to the report, the victims died after eating the entrails of the horses. In fact, one of them was the owner of the horses,” he told MindaNews in a telephone interview. He said the victims who were brought to the provincial hospital for treatment fell ill after eating the horse meat, which were sold by the owner to his neighbors. “We can’t really say right now what exactly caused the poisoning of the victims as there are no more horse meat available that we can subject to laboratory testing,” he said. Henry Albano, Sultan Kudarat Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office head, said they have sent some of their personnel to the area to provide assistance to the affected families. He said Sultan Kudarat Gov. Suharto Mangudadatu instructed his office to locate all residents who have consumed the contaminated meat. Albano said the Senator Ninoy Aquino municipal health office reported that around 30 families had bought and consumed the horse meat. A report from MindaNews

According to Rodriguez, his Congressional office will source the needed funds from the national government so that the construction of the alternate highway could begin soon. Rodriguez said that alternate highway would serve all traffic coming in and out of the city’s downtown district toward the province of Bukidnon. He said that the alternate J.R. Borja Extension Highway is necessary as the construction of the super coastal highway from Puntod to Gusa would be completed soon. The super coastal highway would be serving trailer and cargo trucks from Butuan City and Bukidnon en route to Cagayan de Oro City, Iligan City, Lanao Del Norte and vice versa while private and public utility vehicles would ply via the J. R. Borja Extension Highway, Rodriguez added. CRIS DIAZ, Exec. Ed. MDN

campaign around the world this year as each and every one of us is given the chance to be a superhero and use our power, no matter how small or big, for the planet,” said Clara Elizaga, SM City Cagayan de Oro mall manager. Elizaga shared that some 48 SM branches all over the country participated in this year’s Earth Hour. On one hand, Nati praised the city’s initiative in developing renewable energy. “When people ask me why I decided to develop green buildings in Cagayan de Oro, I tell them it is because CdO is one of the most progressive cities in the Philippines. You have a fantastic mayor and a company like CEPALCO that developed photovoltaic power plants more than ten years ago--which is really incredible, because at that time, people were not yet talking about solar power even in Europe.” Nati is the architect of Primavera Residences, the eco-friendly mixed use condo building in CdO that has received international recognition for its energy-saving and energyproducing features. Its most recent award is in MixedUse Development for the Philippines from the International Property Awards, a prestigious award-giving body known for the premium it puts in sustainable and eco-friendly property development. Nati added: “It’s very important to think about the environment not only for one hour but every single day.” Earth Hour was also a

celebration of local talents who regaled the Earth Hour participants with a medley of fire dancing, and live musical and cultural performances. Fun activities included face painting. Participants were invited to draw a tree on a board, thereby committing to plant a tree, and write a pledge of action for conserving energy and preserving the environment on an open billboard.

effects of climate change in their localities. The training is held from April 3 - 5, 2014, in Cagayan De Oro City, which is one of the areas greatly devastated by tropical storm Sendong in 2011. Cagayan De Oro’s long-term recovery is being supported by Project Climate Twin Phoenix, a project implemented by the Climate Change Commission (CCC), and with support and technical assistance from the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Australian Government. The training on the implementation, installation, maintenance, and operation of the exposure database, dubbed as ClimEx.db, is an ongoing initiative targeted to address the institutional capacity and individual competency gaps on climate/disaster risk management of the project’s local partners. It was successfully implemented in Iligan City in 2013 and is now being rolled out in Cagayan De Oro. The ClimEx.db provides georeferenced data on population, buildings, infrastructure and economic activities of an area, which are considered high-risk for flooding or which are predisposed to the impacts of climate change. This database will be mainly used to assess climate and disaster risk in terms of number of population that will potentially be affected in the event of a disaster, and estimated cost of damage to properties, and losses in potential income from stoppage of economic activities. It will guide the formulation of the city’s Flood Contingency Plan especially in preparing for worst-case scenarios, and ultimately provide baseline data for measuring disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation. During the three-day activity, the participants will have hands-on practice on the use of the ClimEx. db App and will be guided on the actual conduct of a field survey in target sites. Representatives from the Iligan City Planning and Development Office and its partner in the academe, Mindanao State University-Iligan Institute of Technology, were also invited to share their experiences in the implementation and use of ClimEx. db in Iligan City. The ClimEx.db training is targeted to city planners and stakeholders involved in disaster risk reduction and management to strengthen their technical knowledge in assessing and managing their own risks and in the end build community resilience to natural hazard.

Biblical reflection

Bro. Edcel L. Closas

Complains Special Gospel of the day: Mark1:14-20 (April4, 2014-Friday) Mark 1:14-20-the time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel. Now as he walked by the sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and Andrew his brother casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers. And Jesus said unto them, Come ye after me, and I will make you to become fishers of men. And straightway they forsook their nets, and followed him. And when he had gone a little further thence, he saw James the [son] of Zebedee, and John his brother, who also were in the ship mending their nets. And straightway he called them: and they left their father Zebedee in the ship with the hired servants, and went after him: This gospel reminds us the right decision of the apostles in following and choosing God instead their “fishing profession.” In Luke 12:31-but rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you. Who is greater in our lives, God or our professions? In1Timothy 6:10-for the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. Look at the disciples, they responded the invitation of Jesus without “complains and hesitations.” On the other side, in Luke9:5762-Jesus invited few persons to work with Him but they made many excuses. This is contrary to the eagerness of Jesus disciples. How about us, are we responding God’s call? Printing paid by: Neneth - Bobong Balino- Dr. Edith, PhD- Tony Jordan - CDO. St. Peter Calungsod, pray for us!
