Success with coco-sugar – NOT just a sugar coat By Bernardo T. Caringal “The juice of the coconut tree can be transformed into a sugar a soft as honey. Nature created this product such that this could not be processed in factories. Palm sugar can only be produces in palm tree habitat. Local populations can easily turn the nectar into coconut blossom sugar. It is a way to solve the world’s poverty. It is also an antidote against misery” - by MAHATMA GANDHI. (http://www.noblehouse.tk/html/engels/Gula_Java/Coconut_blossom_sugar/Gandhicoconut_blossom_sugar_antidote_against_misery.html)

The products and its prospects... Coconut sugar or Coco-sugar is an all natural and a healthier sweetener made from freshly collected coconut sap and cooked until all water content is evaporated.

Ay...Marinduque Ni: NOEL V. MAGTURO Forum on Anti-Dynasty Bill Heard Anti-Dynasty Bill was discussed, explained and promoted in a forum during the PIA-MIAROPA HOUR, the 1-hour, Nov. 15, 2012, where guests from different sectors came to explain what Dynasty is and its origin. "There is no point in rushing this bill because candidates for 2013 have already filed [certificate of candidacies]. We can‟t have retroactive effect, and prohibit those who have already filed," Senator Aquilino Martin D. L. Pimentel III, electoral reforms and people‟s participation committee chairman, told reporters after the hearing on Senate Bill (SB) No. 2649.” Former Vice-President Teofisto T. Guingona, Jr. said a similar Senate bill he filed in 1987 was passed in the chamber but "the problem was with the House [of Representatives] where there were lots of relatives and would be nearly impossible to pass the proposed bille. Atty. Dioscoro (JT) Timtiman of Human Resource Office, Gerald Gene Querubin of the Philippine Daily Inquirer official correspondent for Southern Luzon, Marinduque-base and College professor at Marinduque State (MSC), Randy Noblezajournalist and professor at MSC, Rolly Larracas, NGO from Marinduque Council or Environmental Concern and Mars Villamin for 1st Island Cooperative-Marinduque were the guests for this forum. Atty. Timtiman emphasized that it is the voting public who finally decides on whom to vote; be it coming from the ruling party or family or just a qualified person to run for any elective office. Time matters not, if performance of the ruling parties is good. It would be unfair if just because one is related to a ruling party, he would not be allowed to run for a political position. Rolly Larracas stressed his point that there should never be monopoly of power, that if you have served decades already, others must be given a chance to serve the province or country as stated by the law that everybody must be given equal access to opportunities for public service and prohibit political dynasties. Randy Nobleza discussed that the concept of family ties in the Philippines. The “utang na loob” or special favours that leads to the perennial support to the ruling family or person. The concept of political dynasty must be clearly defined since it has been the practice of Filipinos to follow the footsteps of their predecessors or parents. Handing-over of power or transfer of power to a family membercannot be called “pamana” or heir since it is the voting public who will give/elect a person for a political position. In

Walang perpekto sa mundo, ito ang katotohanan, Sa paglakad ng panahon, tao'y walang kasiyahan, Sumulong ang modernisasyon ,umunlad ang kaalaman, May umayos ang buhay, meron ding napag-iwanan, Anyo ay nababago ng maraming pampaganda, Bumilis ang komunikasyon dahil sa teknolohiya, Maikukumpara sa ibang bansa ang mga inprastraktura, Iba't ibang transportasyon ang umaandar sa kalsada. Agrikultura at pangangalakal ay makabago na din, Sari-saring "mall", parke at kainan napakadami na din, Ngunit sa kabila ng pagbabago nandiyan ang suliranin, Kakulangan ng kita at pagmahal ng bilihin dapat lutasin, Pagbabago sa edukasyon hindi kaagad matanggap, Nadagdagan ang taon walang magastos ang mahihirap, Malaking isyu din kung lilimitahan ang panganganak, Pagtutol ng masa sa ganitong panukala ay laganap Ang pagbabago'y hindi masama depende sa pananaw, Pagsisikap at tiyaga na tao ay dapat lang mapukaw, Mga magagandang oportunidad ay kusang lilitaw, Pag-unlad ng buhay ay kakamtin pagdating ng araw.

their closing statements everyone calls for the voting public to vote wisely in the coming election, and if they really want change vote on whom they think is right for a position and treasure their right to vote. The discussion was lively, informative and there were no bickerings but the forum was filled with different information. Five students from MSC texted they like listening to informative programs like these and specially the topic on anti-dynasty bill. There were 3 who raised questions; on the parameters of dynasty, what is “enabling act and the involvement of citizenry like forming a movement just so to get this bill approved.

Dahil dito, ayon pa kay Tejada, napakalaki ang maitutulong nito sa label design, product package compatibility, shelf-life testing, technical service referrals, consultancy at ibang pang kailangan para sa pagpapaunlad ng maliit na negosyo. Sinabi rin niyang pangunahing magiging katuwang ng kapitolyo sa operasyon ng center ang Department of Science and Technology (DOST) at Department of Trade and Industry (DTI).

From page 3… Forum

on Anti-Dynasty Bill...

Bryan”, it was pointed out that political dynasty must not be encouraged. Qualified individuals but not financially well off must also be given the chance to run for an elective post. Power must not only be given to one ruling party or family for a long time. Still, if we want change, the people or the voting public has the greater rule or power. They must not let these ruling politician win and rule again, instead they should vote whom they want, rightful, and highly qualified for a political position to stop dynasty. It must be emphasized thou, that people should not vote a new figure in the political arena “just to break the dynasty” especially if the individual belonging to a dynasty is more qualified and is doing good to the province.

Basketbolistang Calapeño, ipinagmamalaki ng lungsod By Luis T. Cueto

CALAPAN CITY, Oriental Mindoro, (PIA) -- Alam n’yo ba na may sariling basketball celebrity na maipagmamalaki ang mga Calapeño pagdating sa hard court? Kasalukuyang namamayagpag sa Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) ang ipinagmamalaki ng Calapan City na si Rain or Shine Captain Ball Jireh Ibañes, isang lehitimong Calapeño na ngayon ay namumuno sa koponang nagpataob sa grupo at nag-alis ng titulo ng kampeyonato nina James Yap ngayong taon. Isa si Ibañes sa maipagmamalaking Calapeño na patuloy na umaarangkada at sumisikat sa larangan ng sports na basketball. Bukod sa pagkakahirang sa kaniya bilang isa sa 2011-2012 best defensive player ng PBA, nagwagi rin siyang kampiyon sa ginanap na 37th PBA Governor‟s Cup kung saan nagtunggali ang kaniyang koponang Rain or Shine Elasto Painters kontra Bmeg Derby Ace Llamados. Kilala rin si Ibañes sa lungsod dahil sa palagian niyang ipinamamalas ang kaniyang angking galing sa basketball sa mga kapwa Calapeňo sa pamamagitan ng paglalaro sa iba‟t-ibang lokal na paliga sa syudad maging sa buong lalawigan ng Oriental Mindoro. Pangalawa sa apat na anak ni Pastor Ralph Ibañes ng Calapan Bible Baptist Church at Marilou Ibañes, sa Calapan lumaki at nagtapos ng elementarya sa Adriatico Elementary School at sekundarya sa Jose J. Leido Jr., Memorial National High School si Ibañes.

Sumabak din si Ibañes sa amateur league, ang Philippine Basketball League (PBL) sa ilalim ng koponang Granny Goose - General Milling Corporation mula 2004-2006. Ito ang naging daan upang makuha siya noong 2006 ng Wellcoat na ngayon ay kilala bilang Rain or Shine basketball team at lumalaro sa professional basketball league ng PBA. Anim na taon mula nang ma-draft sa Wellcoat, si Ibañes na lamang ang natira sa original line-up ng Rain or Shine. Sa nakalipas na taon ay nagpursige siya upang —sundan sa pahina 14

Sa tulong ng magaling na depensa ni Ibañes, mula sa pagiging underdog ay naging isang threat ang Rain or Shine sa ibang team nang itala nito ang record na 8 wins - 1 loss sa single round robin elimination ng nakaraang Governor‟s Cup. Tunay ngang lumabas ang tatag at husay ni Ibañes sa paglalaro ng makailang ulit niyang sirain ang diskarte at opensa ng mga kalabang imports at star players tulad ni James Yap at Mark Caguia na maigting niyang binantayan at dinepensahan. Unang tinalo ng Rain or Shine ang BMeg Llamados sa semi-finals, at muli, nagharap ang dalawang team sa finals ng Governor‟s Cup. Nakamit ni Ibañes ang bunga ng kaniyang pagsusumikap kasama ang buong koponan ng Rain or Shine Elasto Painters, nang sa kauna-unahang pagkakataon mula ng umentra ang koponan nila sa PBA noong 2006, ay naging kampiyon ito ng PBA sa 37th Governor‟s Cup kontra Bmeg Llamados sa record na 4-3. Matapos hiranging kampiyon kamakailan ang Rain or Shine ay kasunod ding pinarangalan ang team captain na si Ibañes ng Smart/PLDT 19th PBA Press Corps Award bilang Best Defensive Player for 2011-2012. Ayon sa kaniya, dream come true ang kanilang championship at bonus na lamang ang mga awards na natanggap niya. Sa panayam ng Inside Calapan kay Ibañes kamakailan, masaya siya sa pag-unlad ng Calapan. Aniya, ibang-iba na ang lungsod na dati niyang kinalakihan. Pangarap niya na bumalik sa Calapan pagkatapos ng kaniyang professional career sa PBA. Hangad niyang makatulong pa sa mga kabataang Calapeño sa pamamagitan ng paglulunsad ng basketball clinics na magsasanay sa homegrown talents ng Calapan na maaaring sumabak din sa PBA. Imahe ng isang modelong Calapeño, „yan si Jireh Ibañes - pursigido, mababang loob, nagsusumikap, naging isang matagumpay na basketbolista at higit sa lahat, tumutulong at naghahangad na umasenso rin ang mga kapwa Calapeño at matupad ang pangarap na magtagumpay sa larangan ng basketball.
