HE Department of Health declared a national dengue alert Monday due to the rapidly rising number of cases in several regions of the country.

HUGE THREAT.

The threat of the Aedes aegypti mosquito, which carries the dreaded dengue virus, looms large over the country, especially in MIMAROPA, Western Visayas, Central Visayas, and Northern Mindanao. This is after the Department of Health on Monday declared, for the first time ever, a national dengue alert due to the rapidly rising number of cases in several regions of the country.

SolGen wants fishers’ lawyers disbarred over ‘kalikasan’ plea By Rey E. Requejo and Rio N.

Solicitor General Jose Calida said these lawyers risked violation of the Code of Professional Responsibility for allegedly keeping their clients in the dark

In the Supreme Court, meanwhile, Senior Associate Justice Antonio Carpio disparaged President Rodrigo Duterte’s policy of appeasement towards China by setting aside the 2016 Arbitral Award rendered by the Permanent Court of Arbitrations invalidating China’s nine-dash-line claims and clarifying the country’s exclusive economic zone, including the West Philippine Sea, purportedly to avoid a losing war with China.

DepEd: 55 lumad schools suspended DAVAO CITY―The Department of Education-Region 11 said Monday it did not issue a closure order against the 55 Salugpungan Ta’ Tanu Igkanogon or Salugpongan tribal schools whose permits to operate were suspended by the agency on July 12. DepEd-11 spokesman Jenielito Atillo told reporters the suspensions did not amount to a stoppage or total closure as claimed by the Save our School Network, where the Salungpungan school system is a member.

Health Secretary Francisco T. Duque III said among the regions that have exceeded the epidemic threshold are MIMAROPA (Region IV-B), Western Visayas (Region VI), Central Visayas (Region VII), and Northern Mindanao (Region X). A DOH regional office must identify a clustering of cases before declaring a localized epidemic at the barangay level, Duque said. Other regions—Ilocos, Cagayan Valley, CALABARZON, Bicol, Eastern Visayas, Zamboanga Peninsula, Davao, Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao, and Cordillera Administrative Region—are being watched closely after exceeding the alert threshold.

Palace ignores Robredo: Let her be Presidential Spokesman Salvador Panelo said the government had “more important things to do” than impeach Robredo following her remarks that she would welcome UN probers when their inquiry on the alleged human rights violations started. “You know, we have better things to do. There are so many problems in this country,” Panelo said. Meanwhile, the commissioner of the Presidential Anti-Corruption Commission

said Monday he only issued a “warning” against Robredo that an impeachment complaint might be filed against her for supporting a United Nations resolution seeking to review the drug war. PACC Commissioner Manuelito Luna said he did not intend to file any impeachment complaint against Robredo. “It’s a warning so she can also think it over, that she has to temper her statements. Although I respect her, she’s a politician, she’s a

lawyer like me but she has to temper her statements,” Luna told ANC’s Early Edition. Panelo has also kept his hands off the issue, leaving the matter to those who “want to initiate” the impeachment. “I will leave it to those who would want to initiate whatever they want to initiate against whomsoever,” Panelo said. “There are as many opinions as there are lawyers. The impeachment court will be the ultimate decider of that legal issue.” His statement came after Luna issued a warning against Robredo for her remarks favoring the UN probe. “Do not embarrass our government internationally. You can always ventilate matters within and we can debate all day, all night without accusing our government of wrongdoings without substantial basis,” Luna said in a television interview. Robredo, in a radio interview last week, said she would welcome UN investigators

Dengue...

The last peak occurred in 2016 and the DOH expects an increase in cases this year. Senate President Pro Tempore Ralph Recto said that with the number of dengue cases rising rapidly, screened windows and doors must be included in the specifications for public classrooms. “During school days, one in four Filipinos are in public schools,” said Recto, referring to 27 million students taught by 830,000 teachers in about 47,000 schools this year. “If Filipinos congregate there, then we should make sure that mosquitos don’t go to school with them,” he said. Schoolchildren, he said, form the largest group of dengue victims, he said.

Recto said screening off ventilation points in classrooms is not a new idea. “In 2015, there was already a plan by the DOH to install screens in 20,000 classrooms, to add to 7,620 classrooms which were already installed with chemicallytreated screens by then.” Duque earlier said the most effective way to prevent dengue is still the 4S strategy—Search and destroy mosquito breeding places, Self-protective measures like wearing long sleeves and use of insect repellent, Seek early consultation on the first signs and symptoms of the disease, and Say yes to fogging if there is an impending outbreak.

From Jan. 1 to June 29 this year, most cases are from Western Visayas (13,164), CALABARZON (11,474), Central Visayas (9,199), SOCCSKSARGEN (9,107), and Northern Mindanao (8,739). Nationwide, the number of cases has reached 106,630, 85 percent higher than the 57,567 cases in the same period last year. Duque said dengue cases have been observed to peak every three to four years, and that early detection and proper case management can prevent deaths.

“It’s okay with me, that is just my formula,” Duterte said. Under the deal worked out by the President, Cayetano would serve the first 15 months of the term before handing it off to Velasco, who would serve as Speaker for the next 21 months. Duterte endorsed Leyte 1st District Rep. Martin Romualdez, who also sought the top post, as the next House majority leader. Presidential Spokesman Salvador Panelo said House members still have the final say despite Duterte’s suggestion of a compromise. “That’s for the House members to say, not for the President. They sought his help, so he obliged and gave them the formula,” Panelo told the Manila Standard. Two party-list congressmen on Monday advised Cayetano to keep his cool and not look too excited about assuming the House of Representatives’ top position on July 22. Even before taking his seat as Speaker, Cayetano ruffled feathers by floating the idea to shorten the terms of senators while extending the terms of local officials. Magdalo Party-list Rep. Manuel Cabotchan said Cayetano should focus on other legislative priorities instead of focusing on constitutional amendments that would suit the vested interests of politicians and some business based in his bailiwick of Taguig. “If Representative Cayetano pushes through with that [pushing his version of Charter amendments], I think these will not be acceptable to the people because it will look like Congress is more interested in pushing the self-serving measures and creating divisiveness among

lawmakers,” Cabotchan said. He added that Cayetano must be able to maintain a harmonious and good working relationship with senators so as to speed up the approval of measures in the President’s legislative agenda. “The House leadership should instead work on the legislative plan for the 18th Congress and focus on measures that would have long-term impact on the lives of the people. Naturally, fostering a good working relationship among the members of Congress is imperative in achieving this goal,” he said. Over the weekend, Bayan Muna Party-list Rep. Carlos Zarate slammed Cayetano for selling the idea to extend the term limit of elected local officials to four years. Zarate dismissed Cayetano’s plan as “self-serving.” Senate President Vicente Sotto III played down Cayetano’s threat to shorten the term of senators. “How can you give what is not yours?” he asked. The tenure and term of senators are specified in the Constitution, Sotto said. “I would like to think that congressman Cayetano said that in jest,” he added. Albay Rep. Edcel Lagman, meanwhile, slammed Cayetano for his seeming refusal to speak of respecting an “authentic” minority leader in the House. “This selective and discriminatory stance augurs the anointment by the supermajority of the next minority leader, a practice reminiscent of the 17th Congress where the leader of the so-called opposition was twice handpicked by the House leadership,” Lagman said. Lagman said Cayetano’s rejection of a possible minority leader and the accommodation of a favored one is installing a “company union” in disguise. With Macon Ramos-Araneta

on Monday, and it mandates that students will be entitled to a 20-percent discount on domestic regular fares. This law covers all kinds of public transportation such as buses, jeepneys, taxis, and other similar vehicles for hire, tricycles, passenger trains and marine vessels for the entire time that they are enrolled. In the case of air public transportation, however, the discount will only apply to the base fare. To avail themselves of the discount, students should be able to present a dulyissued and validated identification card or current validated enrollment form supported by proof of identity. The law is for Filipino students who are currently enrolled in any elementary, secondary, technical and vocational or higher education institution. On the other hand, individuals who are enrolled in dancing or driving schools, short-term courses of seminar-type and post-graduate studies such as those taking up medicine, law, masters and doctorate degrees are excluded from the coverage of the discount privilege. The law also stresses that qualified students cannot avail themselves of double discounts, meaning the student cannot avail themselves of the 20-percent student fare discount and the promotional fare imposed by private entities simultaneously. Meanwhile, in order to provide adequate, economic and legal services to Filipino migrant workers, especially those who are victims of illegal recruitment, President Duterte has sought the creation of the OSWA.

Esperon, who also heads the Task Force to End Local Communist Armed Conflict, claimed that the Salugpungan tribal school system promotes the New People’s Army’s communist ideology that espouses the violent overthrow of the government, trains its students to hold mass actions against the government, and uses curricula not in accordance with the department’s guidelines. On Sunday night, SOS Network posted in its Facebook page that the Education department had issued a “closure” order against the Salugpungan schools. SOS said the department’s action, and Esperon’s allegations, put the security of all Salugpungan students and teachers at risk. “It is appalling that an institution that is supposed to protect and uphold the children’s right to education has reduced itself into a stamp-pad for the military who have targeted the closure of Lumad schools in Mindanao, SOS said.

UN, has been abiding by these mechanisms, as they embody the processes that give due credence to member-states’ accountability and transparency. It is through such mechanisms that the human rights concerns mentioned in the resolution should have been taken up, verified and addressed.” The resolution, it said, was “a pernicious act, an affront to a sovereign, peace-loving nation, and an abuse of UNHRC processes.” In the wake of the resolution’s approval, Senate President Vicente Sotto III said the Philippines would realize savings by pulling out of the UNHRC, since it paid $8.2 million as a mandatory contribution last year. This would save the country up to P445 million a year, he said, expressing support for a suggestion from Foreign Secretary Teodoro Locsin Jr. that the Philippines withdraw from the UN agency. In a Twitter Post, Locsin suggested that the Philippines could follow the example of the United States and withdraw from the UNHRC. “No embassy in Iceland. Nor does Iceland have an embassy here,” he said in a tweet in response to several queries. “Iceland took the place of the US after it withdrew from the Human Rights Council. I think we need to follow America more.” The US withdrew from the UNHRC last year due to its decision to hold Israel accountable for alleged human rights violations in Gaza and the Occupied Territories, accusing the UN body of a “chronic bias against Israel.” On Thursday, the UNHRC voted to adopt the Iceland resolution, with 18 countries voting in favor, 14 voting

when their review on the alleged humanrights violations started. The Vice President’s statement was a “betrayal of public trust,” Luna said. “I cannot sit idly by while our Vice President is lambasting our government, taking a position different from our President and making it appear that the government is into human rights abuses,” he said. Robredo’s camp on Sunday said the Vice President was willing to face any impeachment call. The conflict rose from the Iceland-initiated resolution that called for the UN Human Rights Council to conduct a comprehensive report on the human rights situation in the Philippines amid the government’s anti-narcotics crackdown. The resolution was approved by the UN Human Rights Council last week after eighteen countries had favored it. Fourteen opposed and 15 abstained.

In addition, non-severe dengue could be treated in primary care facilities with a package of P7,000.” The state health insurer said even nonPhilHealth members can also avail themselves of benefits when needing confinement due to dengue complications. against it, and 15 abstaining. The resolution calls on UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet “to prepare a comprehensive written report” on the alleged human rights violations in the Philippines’ war on drugs. Senator Panfilo Lacson said at the rate the country was withdrawing from UN bodies, it would soon find itself isolated. In March, the government withdrew from the International Criminal Court, another UN agency, after it launched a preliminary examination of possible crimes in the Philippines’ war on drugs. But Lacson said that as a developing country, the Philippines might need to ask for help from the community of nations sooner or later. Senator Francis Pangilinan said the government could run but not hide. “Sooner or later, we will have to explain if not to the international community at the very least to ourselves and our citizens why tens of thousands have been killed,” he said. Despite the killings, he added, the drug menace had only become worse, with drug syndicates and their cohorts in the Bureau of Customs smuggling in tons of illegal drugs going unpunished. The Commission on Human Rights, meanwhile, said the UNHRC would not have sought a report on the anti-drug war if the police had shared details of its bloody campaign with the local commission. In an interview with the ANC news channel, Commissioner Karen Dumpit said the police have not responded to CHR’s requests for detials on the 6,600 drug-related deaths since 2016. “They have not done what they said they will do: that they will turn over information they have so that we can also probe properly. We wouldn’t have come to this point if the government has been open about all these investigations,” she said. the spokesman said. The devices were tested for efficiency in 2017 on domesticated elephants, and then wild ones, before they were deployed for real last year. The novel approach has won the team accolades from animal conservationists and on Tuesday an award for “best innovative idea” from Indian Railways for regional operator Northeast Frontier Railway. Elephants have long been known to be frightened by the buzzing of bees and stings. Villagers in the southern Indian state of Kerala have been using “beehive fences” to scare away marauding elephants. When elephants touch the fences, bees inside boxes attached to the fences storm out angrily to defend their colonies. AFP The “Golden State Comic-Con” was first designed as a way for fans to connect with each other and meet their heroes—the comic book creators—at a time when the genre was a million miles away from the mainstream. “We never thought we’d be as big as we are.

Police ’ready to deal’ with 15k protesters AUTHORITIES expect about 15,000 protesters during President Rodrigo Duterte’s State of the Nation Address on July 22, Metro Manila Police Chief Guillermo Eleazar said Monday. “Fifteen thousand more or less. We base this from last year, and we can accommodate them if they number more or less than this,” Eleazar said. He said the number was for Commonwealth in Quezon City alone. But one week before the President’s third SONA, the Alliance of Concerned Teachers Philippines submitted to the Office of the President and to the Budget department the resolutions passed by 202 public school faculty clubs for the urgent grant of a pay increase for teachers and all rank-and-file government employees. “We’re halfway through Duterte’s term. The time is NOW to lift its own workers from their dismal states due to meager pay,” ACT national chairman Joselyn Martinez said in a statement. “No more promises. What we need now is a concrete and decisive move to raise our salaries.” Eleazar said the protesters were also likely to hold demonstrations in front of the US Embassy, at the Liwasang Bonifacio and at the Chino Roces Bridge in Mendiola, Manila. But he assured the public that the police were ready to ensure peace and order during Duterte’s speech. He said 15,000 policemen and force multipliers would be deployed in Metro Manila, and of that number 9,000 policemen and force multipliers will be assigned in Quezon City. He said they had not monitored any threats for the SONA.

Carpio stressed there were several options available for the Philippines to assert its legal victory against China, particularly its continuous environmentally destructive activities in the disputed waters in the South China Sea. In a related development, former Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque slammed Carpio for meddling into the West Philippine Sea sovereignty. At the Pandesal Forum in Kamuning Bakery, Quezon City on Monday, Roque said Carpio must not interfere into the issue of the Duterte administration’s leniency policy toward China. Carpio has been critical of Duterte’s policy on the territorial conflict with China in the West Philippine Sea, and has pushed for the filing of more protests over Beijing’s incursion in the area. The President called Carpio “stupid” for criticizing his decision to allow Chinese fishermen to fish in Recto Bank in the West Philippine Sea. On July 2, Carpio voluntarily inhibited from the writ of Kalikasan petition accusing Dutete of neglect to protect the country’s sea sovereignty. According to Roque, Carpio violated the Canons of Judicial Ethics for stepping into the matter, an impeachable ground. Carpio offered “non-war options” for the government to enforce the threeyear-old ruling of the Permanent Court of Arbitration in the The Hague, The Netherlands. At the same time, Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana rejected observations the Philippines was adopting an appeasement policy towards China at the cost of its territorial integrity in the West Philippine Sea. “No, the appeasement word is coming from you and the others, it’s not appeasement,” he told reporters during the reception of the French National Day in Makati City on Sunday.

MMDA traffic enforcers to get benefits DOJ grants C Kapa’s By Joel E. Zurbano

plea for more time By Rey E. Requejo

THE lawyer of Kapa-Community Ministry International Inc. on Monday asked the Department of Justice to give them more time to answer the complaint filed by the Securities and Exchange Commission accusing its officials of duping its members of at least P50 billion in investment to its alleged illegal Ponzi scheme. During the preliminary investigation on the complaint for violation of provisions of Securities Regulation Code filed by the SEC, lawyer Mae S. Divinagracia revealed she appealed to panel of prosecutors handling the case to extend the deadline for the filing of the counter-affidavits of her clients due to voluminous documents to study and the need to interview the respondents. Divinagracia said she was representing as counsel for respondents Kapa founder Joel Apolinario, Corporate Secretary Reyna Apolinario and Rene Catubigan. Other respondents in the complaint who were not represented were trustee Margie Danao, Marisol Diaz, Adelfa Fernandico, Moises Mopia, and Catherine Evangelista. “We had to file [a request for] an extension or we have to request for an extension because we still have to thoroughly study the records considering that the documents that were furnished to us are quite voluminous. And we also have to fly to Sarangani to conduct the necessary interviews,” Divinagracia told reporters. The panel of prosecutors led by Assistant State Prosecutor Zenamar MachaconCaparros granted the request of Kapa and decided to reset the submission of their counter-affidavits on the next preliminary hearing set on July 29. The lawyer also said they asked that the respondents be allowed to subscribe their counter-affidavit before the provincial prosecutor of Sarangani as they could not appear before the DOJ due to threats to their lives. In its complaint, the SEC said Kapa violated Section 8 (8.1) of the SRC, which prohibits the selling or offering for sale or distribution of securities without a registration statement filed and duly approved by the SEC.

Pump prices up by P1.05 per liter starting today By Alena Mae S. Flores PUMP prices went up by as much as P1.05 per liter starting 6 a.m. Tuesday to reflect the movement of world prices amid tensions between Iran and Britain and lower US oil inventories. Phoenix Petroleum Philippines, PTT Philippines, Unioil Philippines, Chevron Philippines, Pilipinas Shell Petroleum Corp., Seaoil Philippines, Flying V and PetroGazz issued separate advisories of the increase while other oil firms are likely to follow suit. “Effective 12:01 a.m. Jul 16, Chevron Philippines Inc. (Caltex) will increase wholesale posted price (WPP) of Platinum and Silver by P1.05 per liter, diesel by P0.70 per liter and kerosene by P0.70 per liter (all VAT-Inc),” Chevron said. Last July 9, most of the oil companies increased the price of gasoline by P0.25 but cut the price of diesel and kerosene by P0.40 and P0.35, respectively. Oil companies adjust pump prices on a weekly basis while prices vary depending on the brand, location and market forces. With the latest oil price increase, year-todate adjustments stand at a net increase of P6.20 per liter for gasoline, P4 per liter for diesel and P2.45 per liter for kerosene. According to the Energy Department’s weekly monitoring, world oil prices surged to a seven-week high amid a gathering storm in the US amid tensions in the Middle East. A storm in the Gulf of Mexico has intensified to become Tropical Storm Barry while tensions remained high as Iran attempted to make good on a threat to seize a British tanker. Iran is retaliating UK’s capture of one of its vessels laden with crude off the coast of Gibraltar. Iran announced Britain could face “consequences” and three Iranian vessels tried to block the passage of a British ship run by BP through the Strait of Hormuz. Iran withdrew after warnings from a British warship.

HAIRMAN Danilo Lim of the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority has given assurances traffic enforcers hired based on job order scheme will be given permanent position and casual employment status in the agency.

Majority of the MMDA traffic enforcers are classified as job order employees, who are not entitled to benefits and hazard pay. “I know all your hardships and sacrifices, rain or shine, sometimes, you even encounter abusive motorists on the road, but still you carry out your sworn duties to the public,” said Lim, addressing the 2,286 traffic enforcement personnel present during the agency’s Operational

Readiness, Safety, Inspection, Traffic and Evaluation (Orsite) ceremony at the Quirino Grandstand in Manila on Monday. Lim gave assurance the leadership of MMDA listens to the traffic enforcers’ needs. “I will support everyone as long as you stand by the truth and perform your duties well,” added Lim in boosting the morale of the traffic personnel. Orsite aims to ensure the readiness and

capabilities of the traffic enforcers, along with vehicles and equipment utilized by the agency for its management operation and services. Lim, who led the second annual general formation, lauded the traffic personnel for their efforts and services as front-liners of the agency, enforcing traffic rules and regulations in the metropolis. “That is why we continue to provide free medicines, meals, insurance support for everyone,” he said. Laying down plans, Lim said they were now taking steps to complete the vehicles and equipment needed by agency to serve the public efficiently. Several vehicles and equipment donated to the agency were now being utilized for better management service. “Motorcycles, vehicles, rescue equipment, heavy equipment, personnel safety devices, we want to have

additional equipment,” said Lim. During the event, Lim awarded best traffic enforcement units, support units and best traffic personnel for their outstanding performances. Also present during the event were MMDA general manager Jose Arturo Garcia Jr., Deputy Chairman Undersecretary Frisco San Juan Jr., Traffic Discipline Office Director Teroy Taguinod, and other agency officials. Meanwhile, the MMDA announced it had formed a new interim office tasked to oversee and strengthen the agency’s disaster and emergency preparedness and response efforts in the National Capital Region. Lim created the Metropolitan Public Safety Office to integrate and consolidate all units undertaking similar functions or tasks related to disaster and emergency preparedness and response.

A robust social safety net and a well-managed transition to a green economy will be the best response to the unavoidable harms that climate change will bring.” There is no way around this need to transform the global economy. As WRI’s Kelly Levin put it when the 1.5 report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change came out last year: “While there have been examples of rapid change in specific technologies or sectors in the past, there is no precedent in our documented history for the rate of change at the scale required for limiting warming to 1.5˚C. In other words, we have never before witnessed such widespread, rapid transitions, and they will need to be made across energy, land, industrial, urban and other systems, as well as across technologies and geographies. Alston points out that renewable energy will create jobs and energy-efficient investments will lead to greater energy savings and fewer emissions. He also emphasizes the positive impacts of climate adaption and a sustainable economy on healthcare costs and preventing environmental degradation. It could “restore overused and exhausted resources, increase food and water security, and reduce poverty and inequality” The Alston report cites how twentythree countries have succeeded in decoupling economic growth from carbon emissions. Renewable energy, carbon pricing, and green subsidies and jobs, are solid economic strategies that work for the poor. But let’s be clear, while we know what we should be doing, it won’t be easy getting these to happen. But what prevent us from addressing the climate emergency effectively are social and political, not technological or economic, barriers. According to Levin: “There’s no sugarcoating it. Keeping warming to 1.5˚C will be hard. Really hard. But the IPCC report also makes it clear that the world has the scientific understanding, the technological capacity and the financial means to tackle climate change. Now what we need is the political will to precipitate the unprecedented concerted actions necessary to stabilize temperature rise below 1.5 C.” Governments, the private sector, local governments and communities, families and individuals have roles to play. The youth have a particular role to play. Governments must take the lead by declaring a global climate emergency and increasing their commitments in the Paris Agreement. According to

THIS is my third column on the climate emergency. In the first article, I summarized the latest scientific information on climate change, which collectively point to the conclusion that what we are facing is a climate emergency. The familiar way of framing the issue—that climate change is a long-term challenge and we still have the time to address it effectively is no longer tenable. Climate change is already here and it will get much worse, and the worst impacts will be felt by 2050 or even earlier. In addition, we only have 11 years from today—up to 2030—to transform the global economy to avert the worst scenarios for 2020. In my column last Saturday, I wrote about the impacts of the climate emergency on the poor. Citing mainly a recent report on climate change and poverty by Philip Alston, the United Nations Special Rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights, I highlighted how the climate emergency will exacerbate economic inequity and social injustice. In this column, citing extensively again from the Alston report and also from a colleague from the World Resources Institute (WRI), I write about the solutions. Truth be told, climate science might be complex but what we need to do to mitigate and to adapt to climate change does not require hard science. I endorse the view of Mr. Alston that addressing climate change effectively require a fundamental shift in the global economy. It requires rejecting the traditional way States have achieved prosperity, “decoupling improvements in economic well-being and poverty reduction from resource depletion, fossil fuel emissions, and waste production.” According to the Alston report: “This will entail radical and systemic changes including incentives, pricing, regulation, and resource allocation, in order to disrupt unsustainable approaches and reflect environmental costs in entire economic subsystems including energy, agriculture, manufacturing, construction, and transportation.” Much of post-industrial poverty reduction and economic growth has been based on unsustainable resource extraction and exploitation. Certain people and countries have gotten incredibly wealthy through emissions without paying for the costs to the environment and human health—costs borne disproportionately by people in poverty. Staying the course will not preserve growth in the long term, but will be disastrous for the global economy and pull hundreds of millions into poverty. Climate action should not be viewed as an impediment to economic growth but as an impetus for decoupling economic growth from emissions and resource extraction, and

SONA scenarios

HIS time next week the nation will be abuzz with what would be the biggest news of the previous day—the State of the Nation Address of President Rodrigo Duterte. Given the President’s temperament, it is fairly difficult to anticipate the issues he would address in his speech. In fact, regardless of what the Palace says, Mr. Duterte is known to be fond of veering off topic when he feels like it and he may or may not return to his prepared speech. That spontaneity —and the sincerity it implies—is likely part of why he continues to enjoy record-high satisfaction ratings halfway into his term. Despite this, the people would still like to hear what the President has to say on several specific issues. We want an assurance that he remains to be the foremost champion of Philippine interests in the dispute with China. Mr. Duterte is our leader, our fist defender, and even if he claims to be friends with the Chinese leadership, he must be able to tell the actions of true friends from those just pretending to be so. We would also like to hear how he intends to defend the three-yearold campaign against drugs amid allegations of human rights abuses and of ineffectiveness. It is almost certain Mr. Duterte will rant against the international community that has

recently passed a resolution to look into the human rights violations in this campaign. What we would like to know is whether he can defend the campaign calmly and empirically, without resorting to attacking those who are merely asking questions. We want some assurances that Mr. Duterte remains a firm believer in the independence of the branches of government—despite the fact that he went out of his way to campaign for three of his favorite senatorial candidates, and that he magnanimously broke an impasse on the House speakership through a term-sharing scheme. Some quarters are concerned that this is an attempt to bypass checks and balances built into our democratic system. The President must show these fears are unfounded, and that he, as a conscientious democratic leader, grasps the importance—nay, the necessity—of dissent. Economics continues to be a primary concern of many Filipinos, and they will not be bothered to participate in the national discourse if their basic needs are not met. We would like to hear concrete plans and targets about how poor Filipinos can

look forward to being poor no more, and have opportunities through which they can help themselves, in the coming months. Now that the rainy season is upon us, we expect more frequent and stronger storms. Are local governments capable of adapting to the devastating effects of climate change? Will our national leadership support the Philippines’ role in the community of nations as a representative of countries most vulnerable to disaster? We may be concerned about current politics and the daily challenge to put food on the table, but this is a long-term issue that will determine whether the next generation of Filipinos can continue to experience life as they now know it. Mr. Duterte is famous for talking tough, but we wish he would be presidential—authoritative and rational—during his address. We want to be able to take his words at face value, without subsequent explanations and clarifications from his people. We want to hear what we should brace ourselves for in the remaining three years. Lastly, perhaps the President can set an example to his supporters—that one can win an argument through logic and sensibility, not because the arguments are uttered loudly or controversially, or laced with profanity.

Why was SEC absent in Medical City stockholders’ meeting? REMEMBER the controversy hounding the Medical City which made business headlines last year? Well, it looks like the beleaguered group currently controlling the boardroom of the hospital is set to face more headaches. Heard from reliable sources: Professional Services Inc. aka The Medical City held its annual stockholders’ meeting last week. Noticeably absent were representatives from the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). This was despite a reported Court of Appeals order for the corporation to call on the SEC to “administer and control the conduct of the Annual Stockholders’ Meeting to ensure an orderly election and forestall possible controversies that may arise therein”. Could it be that the SEC’s conspicuous absence reflects its reluctance to lend a veneer of legitimacy to the stockholders’ meeting? It will be recalled that the SEC issued a resolution last year ordering the current majority owners of the hospital to explain why they should not be penalized

for certain acts which the SEC said may constitute fraud under the country’s Securities Regulation Code. According to our sources, this is the same Singaporean-backed group that assumed control over the hospital through a so-called special stockholders’ meeting last September, patently ignoring an SEC order, urging the parties to “maintain the status quo” until the SEC had “resolve(d) the rightful ownership of the shares of Professional Services, Inc.” If this is the case, then the SEC is clearly signaling that it is seriously pursuing its investigation over charges that the groups Viva and Fountel “misrepresented their independence from each other” as they gobbled up Medical City shares. The SEC stated in its charge order that the misrepresentation prejudiced the “unsuspecting stockholders whose share value and voting power have declined”. The SEC found probable cause that the Viva-Fountel group’s take-over tactics constituted “fraud.” The SEC specifically condemned the “funding scheme” used by the group. The SEC pointed out that millions of dollars in foreign funds were improperly channeled from the Singaporean firm to several local companies either owned or identified with a business executive who held top positions in the medical facility.

It explained that these acts constituted violations of the Securities Regulation Code (SRC) which prohibit “fraudulent, manipulative and deceptive act or practices” in securities transactions. Now that the SEC has effectively snubbed an attempt by the Viva-Fountel group to get the regulatory agency on its side, it is believed that a final ruling on this matter could be on the horizon, While the Medical City row may on the surface appear to be a mere shareholder dispute, the issue has attracted significant attention particularly from the business community. The public knows that the steps that the SEC will take to resolve the matter will have far-reaching consequences on investor confidence in the country. Many believe that the SEC will not allow giant business interests to get away with fraud, or escape with just a slap on the wrist. Based on its track record, the regulatory agency could instead be set to impose penalties that match the seriousness of the alleged violations of Philippine investment regulations, including nullification of the fraudulent transactions as provided by law. If it does so, the SEC would have also sent powerful signals to big business—local

Opinion

TUESDAY, JULY 16, 2019

Minorities IN ITS second quarter opinion poll conducted last month, Pulse Asia found a whopping 88 percent gross approval of President Rodrigo Duterte’s performance, together with a virtually similar 87 percent gross trust rating. This is the latest personal best record for the President. Clearly, the Duterte haters are very much a small minority. These are the people who’re baffled that the same kind of survey majorities also want our government to become more aggressive against China. Or have also expressed concern over their personal safety in the midst of the President’s scorched-earth war against drugs. Which explains why the Otso Diretso slate pushed by these same people came up with the ultimate minority number of zero in the May senatorial polls. It continues to escape the vaunted intelligence of this noisy minority that our people are too practical-minded, and have too many other concerns on their mind, to be swayed by one-dimensional caricatures of the foul-mouthed mayor from Davao. On China, it’s one thing to be rankled by those maritime incursions by the Chinese, as every red-blooded Filipino should, and another thing entirely to believe in the fairy tale that superpowers will bow to international law even if it doesn’t suit them, or— even worse—that our verbal bravado will somehow prevail in an actual slugfest with the million-strong uniforms of the People’s Liberation Army and Navy. As to the latter point, at least the administration is already making preparations. The AFP and PNP continue to modernize with the help of generous military budgets. A new bill mandating ROTC for Grades 11-12 passed the House over only four objections. And most recently, the intermittently pugnacious Foreign Affairs Secretary Locsin has called for lifting the constitutional prohibition on war as an instrument of national policy. *** On the drug issue, there’ve been so many personal accounts from poor neighborhoods about how their safety situation has improved since the war on drugs started. And if the war has racked up its own definition of collateral damage called EJKs—numbering 3,000-plus and not the purely imaginary number of 27,000 bandied about by the big-lie propagandists from the red and yellow camps—then it’s an inevitable cost that the public seems willing to live with as an occupational hazard and a price worth paying

for restoring peace and order to their streets. Which is why the recent UN Human Rights Council resolution to order an investigation into the human rights situation in the Philippines will never enjoy more than small minority support in our country. And even within the UN itself—with 18 votes in favor, 14 against, and 15 abstentions—t’s not unreasonable to describe that narrow majority opinion as being, in fact, a disguised minority view.

This kind of ideologicallyinstigated, selfrighteous, unthinking rhetoric of victimization is what can give minorities a bad name.

The Kaliwa dam proposal has been around since the seventies. It is in fact just one of three dams that have been proposed in the same general area, the others being Kanan and Laiban dams. Building these water reservoirs ought to be a no-brainer—unless it runs up against our misguided notions of “social justice.” In this case—as reported by Ressa mouthpiece Rappler--the proposed construction of Kaliwa is now being resisted by representatives of indigenous peoples (IPs) in the area of Mt. Daraitan, the project location. These IPs number a grand total of 5,000— yes, five thousand—whose leaders are now demanding that the entire project be stopped outright. No scientific justification is proffered, nor a reasonable request instead for just compensation and resettlement when they’re displaced, nor any kind of sensible suggestion about how and where else to source that additional water, nor even an explanation why they think the compensable claims of five thousand people are more important than the survival of millions of others. No, all we’re presented with is a petition to just stop the project— basta. This kind of ideologicallyinstigated, self-righteous, unthinking rhetoric of victimization is what can give minorities a bad name. *** Today’s readings contemplate rejection and isolation as being also occasions to witness God’s infinite mercy. After the Egyptian pharaoh decrees the death of all newborn sons of the Israelites in slavery, Moses is given up by his mother for adoption by the pharaoh’s own daughter. But a grownup Moses ends up killing an Egyptian who was abusing a fellow Israelite, and has to abandon the comforts of the royal court as a fugitive in the land of Midian (Ex 2: 1-15). In the responsorial Psalm 69, David in his rejection likewise cries out for God’s succor: “Save me, God,…for I have sunk into the mire of the deep, where there is no foothold.” But even in his distress, David does not give up hope: “…you who seek God, take heart! For the Lord hears the poor, does not spurn those in bondage.” Jesus too suffers rejection of His preaching by some of the crowds (Mt 11: 20-24) and initially lashes out at them: “Woe to you, Chorazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! Capernaum, you will go down to the underworld.” But His Divine nature, as always, eventually prevails and prompts His gentle invitation to the same crowds (2830): “Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest.”

Iceland, the sponsor of the resolution, is itself guilty of that most horrific of human rights abuses—the sin of abortion, which has killed over 34,000 Icelandic babies in their mothers’ wombs, in a country of only 340,000 residents. This 10-percent abortion rate is consistent with a typically permissive Western morality that has produced record-high numbers of single parents as well as sexually-transmitted chlamydia. Iceland is a country that allows abortion of unborn babies up to 22 weeks in the womb, does not require parental consent for minors to undergo the procedure, and is notorious for systematically destroying Down’s Syndrome unborn babies on eugenic grounds. In a country like ours where human life is constitutionally defined to begin “from conception,” this kind of public policy thinking can only boggle the mind. *** The current water crisis continues to afflict millions of Metro Manila residents who depend on just one source—Angat Dam—for almost all their potable water, as well as millions of farmers in the surrounding provinces whose livelihood—as well as our food supplies—depends on plentiful water. Over the last half century since the Marcos years, it’s been generally acknowledged that the best solution is to build additional dams in the mountainous terrain of Quezon and Rizal. Every year, some 8 billion liters of rain water is dumped on the Sierra Madre mountains by our typhoons and monsoon season, only to flow right back Readers can write me at gbolivar1952@ into the Pacific, unstored and unused. yahoo.com.

A one-stop shop for OFWs IT’S about time that a Department of Overseas Filipino Workers was established to effectively oversee the deployment and employment of Filipino contract workers abroad. There are over 2.3 million OFWs in five continents based on 2018 figures collated by the Philippine Statistics Authority. Little wonder that President Rodrigo Duterte supports the proposal of Senator Christopher “Bong” Go, his former aide, knowing the compelling need for such agency and the rationale behind it. Manong Digong wants the department for OFWs created by December. Senator Go has filed, among others, Senate Bill No. 202—the Department of Overseas Filipinos Act of 2019. It will not be just another agency that will unnecessarily expand the bureaucracy. In fact, it seeks to straighten out and streamline the government functions that concern OFWs. Under this measure, the department will serve as the umbrella agency to address all issues and concerns of Filipinos abroad and their families. Once the measure is enacted, the department will be established and integrate all the functions of the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA), the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA), the Office of the Undersecretary for Migrant Workers Affairs of the Department of

Foreign Affairs, the Commission on Filipino Overseas, and the International Labor Affairs Bureau. The proposal, if realized, will cut down the fat in the bureaucracy and eliminate duplication of functions which is a waste of public funds. Senator Go envisions the department as a one-stop shop which will address all the concerns of prospective OFWs from the point of recruitment and job application to deployment and monitoring of their work conditions. It is understandable, too, that foremost in the mind of its author, Sen. Go, is the guaranteed protection of OFWs from greedy and scheming illegal recruiters, as well as abusive employers overseas. Countless Filipino workers have suffered and quite a number have been killed in the hands of cruel employers in various countries. Female OFWs have been the most susceptible to physical abuse, particularly molestation and rape of domestic workers. Male OFWs are vulnerable to unfair labor practices. Manong Digong simply will not allow OFWs suffering anymore. “We won’t allow recruitment from outside. If they want [outside recruiters], they will have to be under the supervision of the government and there will be no horrendous charges. I won’t allow that,” said the President during the Araw ng Pasasalamat sa OFW Summit held Friday in Camp Aguinaldo, Quezon City. Stricter regulations on job recruitment agencies and stiffer penalties are being sought by the Anti-Crime and Terrorism Through Community Involvement and Support (ACT-CIS).

“We fully support such legislation seeking to create the Department of OFWs to give the public service and assistance to our modern day heroes and their families deserve,” said ACTCIS Rep. Eric Yap. I agree with Senator Go and I know for a fact that many Filipinos continue to fall prey to exploitative illegal recruiters who impose excessive fees while making false promises of employment abroad. My media and public assistance office and those of my brothers have been inundated with complaints and grievances of victims of illegal recruiters for over three decades now. The measure also aims to create an Overseas Filipinos Assistance Fund to provide financial support to Filipino migrants in distress, inclusive of repatriation and provisions for life-saving funds in times of great emergency or distress, and provides training and livelihood loans for OFWs returning to the country for good. The bill shall also mandate the creation of “OFW Malasakit Centers” in all provinces and major cities to ensure prompt and efficient provision of services to OFWs and their families such as the acquisition of government permits, validation of overseas job offers, complaints desks, and reintegration services. Currently, OFWs need to go to different government agencies to secure their documents and present their other concerns such as employment and technical education. We are hoping as Senator Go does that Manong Digong certifies the OFW Department bill as urgent to get it passed and enacted into law by yearend.

For sure, as Alston highlights it, companies can provide and implement solutions to climate change, but he warns that an overreliance on voluntary, private sector efforts would be wrong. According to Alston: “Climate change is a market failure, and voluntary emissions reduction commitments will only go so far . . . An over-reliance on the private sector could lead to a climate apartheid scenario in which the wealthy pay to escape overheating, hunger, and conflict, while the rest of the world is left to suffer.” Local governments must now take the lead in addressing the climate change. Hundreds of local governments have now declared a climate emergency. Young and progressive leaders lead the cities of Manila, Pasig, San Juan, Makati, Quezon City, Valenzuela, and Dumaguete and the province of Dinagat Islands, among others. They should make this a priority and have their councils declare a climate emergency, prioritizing climate change adaptation and mitigation measures. Finally, the youth have the most important role in what has to be done to fight the climate emergency. I encourage and support the climate strike movement inspired by Greta Thunberg of Sweden. Young people have the most at stake in the climate emergency. They also have the energy and courage to insist on what has to be done. The climate emergency is the biggest challenge the world faces. The Philippines is going to be particularly hit by it. Working together, we still have time— ot much yes, but enough—to avert the worst. But we have to start now.

Alston: “Climate change should be a catalyst for States to fulfil long ignored and overlooked economic and social rights, including to social security, water and sanitation, education, food, healthcare, housing, and decent work. Revenue from climate action including emissions control and tax restructuring should be used to fund social protection programs to protect those affected.” Developed countries and the big developing countries must still take the lead. But middle income countries and the least developed counties, including the most vulnerable, must also reduce emissions. The richer counties must increase their financial assistance to developing counties so that the latter can adapt better and contribute more to mitigate climate change. We should assign and send more, not less, diplomats to the annual climate change negotiations. We should rejoin the Like Minded Developing Countries bloc and there carry the banner of climate justice. We might want to revisit our climate governance system, based on a flawed design of a Climate Change Commission (CCC) headed by the President. I have worked with all four of the Vice-Chairs of the CCC since it was established in 2010 and they have been dedicated and committed but with a system designed to fail, they have had to deal with enormous challenges. I prefer a new department perhaps combined with our disaster reFacebook: deantonylavs Twitter: tosilience needs or with the current envinylavs ronment department as a way forward.

BOC conducts surprise random drug tests on employees THE Bureau of Customs conducted a surprise random drug tests on officers and employees right after the flag raising ceremony yesterday morning. BOC Deputy Commissioner Raniel Ramiro of the Intelligence Group said the drug test is done in accordance with the Dangerous Drugs Board Regulation No. 13, series of 2018, which provides for the establishment and institutionalization of a drug-free workplace policies in all government offices. In a statement, the BOC cited the mandate of President Rodrigo Duterte to eradicate illegal drugs in the workplace as an impetus to conduct a surprise random drug tests. “This initiative is in line with the guidance of the Commissioner, pursuant to his commitment for a drug-free workplace, implemented by Deputy Commissioner, IG and Deputy Commissioner, IAG,” the BOC said. The undertaking was coordinated by the Customs Intelligence and Investigation Service and the Customs Anti-Illegal Drugs Task Force with the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency while CIIS and CAIDTF are assisting the chemists from PDEA in collecting urine samples from the employees assigned at the Office of the Commissioner, Port of Manila, and Manila International Container Port. Officials and employees who refuse to submit themselves for drug testing without valid reason shall be issued with show cause order by the Commissioner or his authorized representative. Those who tested positive of drug use after the initial screening test shall be subjected to further confirmatory drug test. Vito Barcelo

Lapid wants manufacturers to label ‘toxic’ household items By Macon Ramos-Araneta SENATOR Lito Lapid has renewed his call for the government to require manufacturers to put precautionary labels on household items which may contain toxic and hazardous substances. “We want to warn our coutrymen that the simple things we used at home contain poisonous chemicals that endanger our health,” he said. Lapid has filed Senate Bill No. 58 also known as the Hazardous Household Substances Labelling Act, which intends to compel manufacturers to put warning labels on household items. He said that these items contain substances that are considered toxic, corrosive, harmful irritants, strong sensitizers or flammable through a standard of signage and symbols that would alert consumers of the potential dangers of the products. According to Lapid, this measure seeks to protect the health and safety of people by helping them identify hazardous chemicals at home. He also noted that consumers are unaware that many household items contain chemicals that may cause serious injury and health issues. With this, it is only necessary for companies to not only disclose the toxic contents of the products they manufacture but also to warn the consumers of the risks of using the said products, Lapid said. Apart from placing warning signs and symbols that would alert consumers of the potential dangers of the products, the bill also aims to require the companies to provide instructions on the firstaid steps to take in case of accidents caused by improper handling or storage of the products.

Pinoys with fake boarding passes held By Vito Barcelo

MMIGRATION officers at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport intercepted 13 Filipino passengers bound for Hongkong with fake airline boarding passes they acquired from a scammer.

BI Port Operations Division Chief Grifton Medina said the passengers, seven men and six women, were intercepted at the airline counter of Cathay Pacific at the NAIA 3 terminal after airline personnel found that the self-printed boarding passes they presented were not in the manifest and were not issued

tickets by the airline. “It is seems that they are victims of a scammers who prey on the public by selling fake tickets at cheap prices to entice their victims,” Medina said. He said it was only at the airport that the passengers knew they were scammed after the airline informed

them that their boarding passes are not encoded in their system. BI-Travel Control and Enforcement Unit chief Timotea Barizo said the passengers pointed to one of their female companions as the one who enticed them to buy the plane tickets, but the woman claimed she also did not know that the boarding passes were bogus as these were only given to her by a certain ‘Jennifer.’ She alleged that she met Jennifer thrice and she was only instructed to distribute the tickets to her companions. It was also found out that some of their hotel bookings were canceled.

“They were also allegedly told to wear T-shirts bearing the name of a herbal product during their trip and were instructed to take off the shirts after they are cleared by Immigration. It was done to make it seem like they were on an official company trip abroad,” she said. The victims may have been promised jobs abroad, hence the fake tickets and the misrepresentation. “We suspect they may have been victimized by illegal recruiters,” she added. All 13 passengers were eventually turned over to the Inter-Agency Council Against Trafficking for assistance and further investigation.

IN BRIEF PCUP to intensify delivery of services THE Presidential Commission on Urban Poor on Monday vowed to intensify its delivery of government services to urban poor communities through various programs and projects. Alvin Feliciano, PCUP chairperson and chief executive officer, said the public is not aware that the government has a lot of pro-people programs, and a lot of money, too (to fund them). Most of the urban poor communities cannot access government services due to lack of information, he lamented. PCUP is a bridge of the marginalized to the government to take an extra mile on intensifying public information campaign on government services to poor areas, he said. The agency shall continue to extend caravan services through its free services of medical, dental and eye checkup; circumcision; mental health awareness; local and international jobs fair; motor vehicle registration orientation; overseas Filipino workers help desk; processing of birth, death and marriage certificates; legal services; body and foot massage; health registration, and membership, Social Security System voluntary membership, among others, Feliciano said.

DA flagged for non-liquidation of funds By Rio N. Araja THE Commission on Audit has called the attention of the Department of Agriculture over its non-liquidation of 85.45 percent of the P5.7-billion fund for some implementing agencies and non-government organizations. In a 2018 audit report, state auditors said the DA has not yet presented reports and other supporting documents to prove P4.883 billion or 85.45 percent of the total fund were transferred to government agencies, government-owned- and -controlled corporations and NGOs. COA chided DA for violation of COA Circular Nos. 94-013 and 2007-001. It also flagged the Agriculture depart-

ment for P16 billion worth of unliquidated fund transfers to government agencies and NGOs in the past four years. According to the report, at least P4 billion could be traced back 10 years or older. “Of the said amount, P4,883,115,478.07 or 85.45 percent of the funds transferred were not liquidated. Also, P16,568,896,584.06 or 69.68 percent of prior year’s balance of P23,778,426,602.69 were still unliquidated,” the COA said. Out of the total amount, the national government agencies ate up P2.152 billion, followed by the local governments at P1.694 billion, GOCCs at P1.327 billion, NGOs at P478.2 million and regional offices at P62.16 million.

COA said national government agencies had the most unliquidated balances with P1.779 billion, LGUs with P1.330 billion, GOCCs with P1.327 billion, NGOs with P384.5 billion and regional offices with P60.96 million. The Agriculture department being the source agency must require the implementing agencies and NGOs to “submit the required reports” and “furnish the implementing agencies with a copy of the journal voucher taking up the expenditures.” “Within 60 days after the completion of the project, the NGO shall submit the final fund utilization report together with the supporting documents to the source agency,” the report stated.

Villar warns public vs. plastic pollution CITING the prediction of the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization experts that by 2050 that there will be no more fish in the ocean, Senator Cynthia A. Villar exhorted the public to help solve the problem of plastic pollution. Villar admitted the prediction is “not far-fetched” as fish supply continues to decrease from 70 percent wild catch and 30 percent aquaculture 20 years ago to 50 percent wild catch and 50 percent aquaculture at present. She said plastic pollution has been identified as one of the reasons why fish supply is dwindling in the ocean. To avert this situation, Villar urged aquaculture practitioners and fish farmers to take part in solving plastic pollution in the country’s bodies of water, which continues to threaten our fish supply “I urge everyone of you to take part in solving this plastic pollution by observing within your homes and your communities proper waste disposal,” said Villar.

SINCE the present allocation for local roads averages P10 million per local government unit, enough to cover only half the cost of repairs for one kilometer concrete road, Senator Imee Marcos wants to remedy this “underinvestment” of past government administrations. Marcos filed Senate Bill No. 224 to “institutionalize” the Conditional Matching Grant to Provinces program of the Department of the Interior and Local Government. Her proposed measure would ensure funding for the road construction, rehabilitation, maintenance, and upgrade. “Twenty years of underinvestment has left local roads in poor-to-bad condition and in a disconnected state,” Marcos said. The measly allocation for local roads comes from a mere 5 percent of road users' fees collected by the Land Transportation Office, turned over to the Special Local Road Fund, and apportioned to LGUs according to their road length and vehicle count.

Legislator seeks to ease entry of foreign direct investments By Maricel V. Cruz A LAWMAKER from the Visayas region on Monday expressed hope that the House of Representatives under the 18th Congress will prioritize the passage of bills that propose to amend the outdated provisions of the Foreign Service Investments Act, the Public Service Act and Retail Trade Liberalization Act to make the country’s business climate more conducive to big, long-term investments.

Camarines Sur Rep. Luis Raymund Villafuerte was referring to his three separate bills filed which aim to update of three old laws, including the 82-yearold Public Service Act, to ease the entry of foreign direct investments, to boost President Rodrigo Duterte’s agenda of high inclusive growth. “We need to relax the restrictions in doing business in the country that have become deal-breakers for foreign investors despite the Philippines’ emergence

as one of the fastest-growing economies in Asia,” Villafuerte said. One of the laws that Villafuerte seeks to amend, the Public Service Act, aims to open more industries previously misclassified as “public utilities” to foreign investments. Under Villafuerte’s bill, the term “public utility” shall only refer to the 1) transmission of electricity, 2) distribution of electricity, and 3) operation of waterworks and sewerage systems.

Villafuerte said amendments to the law will free Filipinos from “the mercy of a few oligarchs who effectively control the market and dictate high prices but deliver poor quality of public services.” “One key to addressing the said problem is to amend the antiquated provisions of The Public Service Act or Commonwealth Act 146, that remains to be the principal law, enacted more than 80 years ago, on business activities that are

classified as public utilities or public services,” Villafuerte said. He said “vast advances in technology and the modes of delivery of services require changes in our laws to be responsive to the changing times.” Villafuerte also seeks amendments to Republic Act 8179, or the Foreign Investments Act of 1991, to delete the “practice of professions” from the items listed in the Foreign Investment Negative List promulgated by the President.

Complete Stags take on Cardinals By Peter Atencio THE San Sebastian Stags will play as a complete team now that one of their veteran starters is back. Allyn Bulanadi, who suffered a right shoulder injury last month, is expected to spend more time on the floor and lead his teammates in their 2 p.m. encounter with the Mapua University Cardinals today in the 95th National Collegiate Athletic Association men’s basketball tournament. “I was not hoping na hindi siya lalaro, pero he was forcing me para maramdaman niya ang NCAA,” said coach Edgar Macaraya after their first game of the season at The Arena in San Juan. When Bulanadi briefly entered the court against the Jose Rizal University Heavy Bombers on Tuesday, he produced seven points on 3-of-3 shooting in two minutes of play. In their opening game, Alvin Capobres tallied 16 points, six rebounds and two assists for San Sebastian as they demolished the Heavy Bombers. A second straight win will allow the Stags to share the lead with the defending champion San Beda University Red Lions. The Cardinals are reeling from a 78-80 loss to the University of Perpetual Help Altas.

Petron eyes 5 straight victory th

Games Today

(Bacoor Strike Gym) 4:15 p.m. — Foton vs Sta. Lucia 7:00 p.m. — Petron vs Generika-Ayala

BACOOR CITY -- Defending champion Petron seeks to keep its momentum going when it takes on GenerikaAyala at the start of the second round of the Philippine Superliga All-Filipino Conference Tuesday at the Bacoor Strike Gym here. The Blaze Spikers, who hold the solo second place with a 6-1 win-loss record, gun for their fifth straight victory against the Lifesavers (5-2) in the 7 p.m. main game of this explosive doubleheader. Meanwhile, Jaja Santiago and Foton (4-3) gun for their fourth consecutive win against lowly Sta. Lucia (1-6) in the first game at 4:15 p.m. After crushing the Lady Realtors in their previous game at the Alonte Sports Arena in Binan City over the weekend, Petron mentor Shaq Delos Santos was now convinced that they had already arrested their slow start and are now ready to roar for their third straight AllFilipino crown. Still, the veteran core of Frances Molina, Aiza Maizo-Pontillas, Bernadeth Pons, Mika Reyes and Rhea Dimaculangan has to jack up their performance to dominate the Lifesavers, who are also coming off a fine performance in the first round.

Epic Wimbledon win Djokovic’s toughest L

ONDON—Novak Djokovic admitted his epic, recordbreaking Wimbledon final triumph over Roger Federer on Sunday was the “toughest mentally” he had ever endured.

He also revealed he was able to turn the overwhelmingly pro-Federer, 14,000-strong Centre Court crowd in his favour by training his mind. “When the crowd is chanting ‘Roger’ I hear ‘Novak’,” said the Serb. The world number one saved two match points to clinch a fifth Wimbledon title and 16th major, shattering Federer’s bid to become the oldest Grand Slam champion in the longest final ever played at the tournament. Despite being outplayed by the 37-year-old Swiss for large parts of the knife-edge encounter, the top seed emerged victorious 7-6 (7/5), 1-6, 7-6 (7/4), 4-6, 13-12 (7/3). At 4 hours and 57 minutes, it was the longest Wimbledon final ever played and settled by a final set tiebreak for the first time. Djokovic is the first man in 71 years to win the title from match points down.

“It was probably the most demanding, mentally, match I was ever part of,” said the 32-year-old Djokovic. “I had the most physically demanding match against (Rafael) Nadal in the final of Australia that went almost six hours (in 2012). “But mentally this was a different level, because of everything.” ‘Thrilled, overjoyed’ “I’m thrilled and overjoyed with emotions to be sitting here in front of you as a winner but I was one shot away from losing the match. It could have gone easily his way.” Djokovic saved the match points in the 16th game of the deciding set, which ran for over two hours and was settled by a 12-12 tiebreak for the first time in a singles match at the tournament. It was a display of stunning mental fortitude by Djokovic. However, he has been in similar pre-

dicaments in the past against Federersaving two match points in both of his semi-final victories over the Swiss at the 2010 and 2011 US Opens. “I just try to never lose self-belief, just stay calm, just focus on trying to get the ball back, return, which wasn’t serving me very well today. “But in the most important moments, all three tiebreaks I guess, if I can say so, I found my best game.” Djokovic also insisted he had pictured how the final would play out, appreciating that Federer was, as always, the sentimental favourite. “I like to transmutate it in a way: When the crowd is chanting ‘Roger’ I hear ‘Novak’. It sounds silly, but it is like that. I try to convince myself that it’s like that,” he said. Djokovic is now just two Slams behind Rafael Nadal and four back from Federer on the all-time list. He is also younger than both of his great rivals. But on Sunday, he was off the pace for large parts of the final, only carving out his first break points in the eighth game of the fourth set. AFP

AFTER President Rodrigo Duterte said that he would not allow the Phisgoc (Philippine Southeast Asian Games Organizing Committee) Foundation to organize the Southeast Asian Games, the Palace on Monday said that the government should be on top of hosting chores. President Duterte on Thursday night shot down efforts by the privately-formed Phisgoc Foundation to snatch the hosting of the 30th SEA Games from government agencies Philippine Sports Commission and Philippine Olympic Committee. “I have to be responsible for this. Give (the SEA Games) to government,” Duterte said. Presidential Spokesman Salvador Panelo said President Duterte will likely to issue an executive order to give the PSC and POC a freehand in organizing the biennial multi-sports event. “Since he made that statement, then that is forthcoming. That is his position. He doesn’t like the Foundation, eh,” Panelo said. The Phisgoc Foundation, according to reports, took over the functions of the POC and made decisions on its own, including the creation of the SEA Games’ official logo, theme, mascot and other marketing collaterals without the approval of the POC board. The Phisgoc Foundation, chaired by House speaker bet and Taguig Rep. Alan Peter Cayetano, is also blamed for the slow progress of the Games as questions have surfaced concerning transportation, accommodation, sponsorship, venues, volunteer program, parade uniform, and technical handbook.

IN BRIEF C Estates launching online platform in Q4 C ESTATES Inc., a new real estate company, is set to commercially launch by the fourth quarter of 2019 an online platform that allows investors to acquire a fraction or whole of any property in the Philippines using the process of tokenization. Teru Sumida, chief executive officer of C Estates, told reporters in a briefing Monday the online platform would connect buyer and sellers of property “just like in a stock market.” “C Estates was formed because of our encounters in the slow and rigorous process of buying and selling properties in the Philippines,” Sumida said, adding his company would make the process of buying and selling less complicated for investors. The company, which aims to set the global industry standard for real estate transactions, uses the process of tokenization that has long been used by financial institutions on monetary assets. Tokenization is the process of protecting sensitive data by replacing it with an algorithmically generated number called a token. Sumida said in addition to securing and protecting all sensitive information on its database, it ensures quick and efficient transfer of property ownership and in the process avoid human errors on public records.

DoF issues draft rules on property security THE Department of Finance posted the draft implementing rules and regulations for Republic Act 11057, or the “Personal Property Security Act,” on its website, where stakeholders and interested parties may review and download the proposed IRR and provide online comments and suggestions. The draft IRR was prepared by the DoF Legal Services Group in consultation with experts, practitioners and professors in commercial laws and credit transactions of the UP Law Center. The PPSA aims to promote economic activity by increasing access to leastcost credit, particularly for micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs), by establishing a unified and modern legal framework for securing obligations with personal property. It also seeks to increase access to credit of MSMEs, as well as farmers and fisherfolk. Under the PPSA, MSMEs, farmers and fisherfolk can now secure their borrowings by using non-traditional collaterals. Julito G. Rada

SM Development Corp., the company’s primary residential business unit, recorded a 20-percent increase in reservation sales in the first six months to P41.46 billion. This was led by a 6-percent increase in unit sales to 9,877 from 9,319 units in the same period last year. SM Prime’s other businesses led by commercial properties group and hotels and convention centers reported combined revenue growth of 13 percent to P4.63 billion in the first half from P4.11 billion in the same period last year. The group had 11 office buildings with a combined GFA of 642,000 sqm as of June 2019. It also has seven hotels with more than 1,700 rooms, four convention centers and three trade halls.

MONEY sent home by Filipinos working overseas rose 5.7 percent to a five-month high of $2.6 billion in May from $2.46 billion a year ago, Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas Governor Benjamin Diokno said Monday. The amount brought total cash remittances in the first five months to $12.349 billion, up 4.5 percent from $11.8 billion in the same period last year. “In particular, cash remittances from land-based and sea-based workers increased by 3.2 percent at $9.7 billion and 9.2 percent at $2.7 billion, respectively, during the first five months,” Diokno said in a statement. The US registered the highest share of overall remittances in the five-month period at 36 percent. It was followed by Saudi Arabia, Singapore, the United Arab Emirates, the UK, Japan, Canada, Hong Kong, Qatar and Kuwait. The combined remittances from these countries accounted for 78 percent of total cash remittances from January to May 2019. Personal remittances which include non-cash items also increased 5.5 percent in May to $2.896 billion, also a five-month high, from $2.746 billion a year ago. This brought total personal remittances in the first five months to $13.707 billion, up 4.1 percent from $13.17 billion a year ago. “The steady growth in personal remittances during the first five months drew support from the remittance inflows from land-based workers with work contracts of one year or more which aggregated to $10.5 billion from $10.2 billion in the same period last year,” Diokno said. Cash remittances reached a record $28.9 billion in 2018, up 3.1 percent from $28.06 billion in 2017. This also slightly surpassed the 3-percent growth target of the government for the entire year. The BSP said remittances in 2018 remained strong despite the political uncertainties across the globe. This was evident in remittances from Asia, the Americas and Europe which grew annually by 12.3 percent, 9.7 percent and 7.7 percent, respectively. The bulk of cash remittances last year also came from the US, Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Singapore, Japan, the UK, Qatar, Canada, Germany and Hong Kong.

Anchor Land signs P4-b deal with Parañaque

ANCHOR Land Holdings Inc. signed a P4-billion public-private partnership contract with the city government of Parañaque for a mixed-use development. ALHI said in a statement the onehectare mixed-use project would rise between Parañaque Integrated Terminal Exchange and Coastal Mall. The project, an unsolicited proposal of ALHI to the local government of Parañaque, involves the construction of three towers. The first tower will house the satellite office of the city government while the second will be dedicated to office and commercial use. The third tower will be used as a bed-spacing facility. “We want to express our utmost gratitude to the city government of Parañaque for the trust they have given us for this project,” ALHI project director Aaron Tumao said. “This is a very important milestone for Anchor Land as it gives us the opportunity to support Parañaque City in bringing its services closer to its people,” he said. Parañaque Mayor Edwin Olivarez said the satellite office would include the extension offices of the city’s business permit and licensing office and the assessor’s office which is responsible for processing permits for both local and foreign investors. “This project and our satellite office will bring the city government’s services closer to our citizens and all sectors especially our business partners,” Olivarez said. “Through this project, we are encouraging the private sector to invest in our city, in the Manila Bay area. We are making it very convenient for them to establish their businesses,” he said. Jenniffer B. Austria

RAIL CARGO SERVICE. Pakistan International Container Terminal, a subsidiary of International Container Terminal Services Inc., in cooperation with state-owned Pakistan Railways, launch a dedicated rail cargo service connecting the cities of Karachi and Lahore. The cargo rail service aims to move goods faster and at a significantly lower cost to upcountry markets, benefiting major industries. Witnessing the launch of rail service are Pakistan Railways Federal Minister Shaikh Rasheed Ahmad, along with officials of the Karachi Port Trust and Pakistan Customs.

THE National Economic and Development Authority Board’s Investment Coordination Committee-Cabinet Committee on July 10 approved the 130-percent increase in the cost of the Mindanao Railway Project Phase 1, or the TagumDavao-Digos segment. It said the increase in project cost to P82.9 billion from the previously approved P35.9 billion would cover changes in the cost of structural and construction works, among others. The ICC-CabCom also approved the additional Davao Satellite Depot of the MRP-TDD. The committee also approved the increase in the cost of the Metro Manila Priority Bridges Seismic Improvement Project from P4.3 billion to P7.9 billion to cover the changes in the construction technology to be applied to the Guadalupe Bridge, putting up of temporary detour bridges in Guadalupe and additional work shift to reduce the construction period. It also approved the implementation extension of one year and eight months

until August 2023, inclusive of a one-year defects liability period to help the project catch up with the target completion date. The ICC-CabCom also noted the inclusion of the project management consultant with a cost of P14.39 billion, inclusive of VAT and contingencies, in the scope of works for the PNR South Long Haul Project. “We see changes in scope and cost as opportunities to optimize the project components and update the estimates. The government aims to speed up implementation while ensuring quality,” said Economic Planning Secretary Ernesto Pernia who co-chaired the meeting with Finance Secretary Carlos Dominguez III. Meanwhile, the Neda board confirmed ad referendum the ICC-CabCom approval of changes in three projects including the implementation extension and loan validity extension of Central Luzon Link Expressway Project Phase I of the Department of Public Works and Highways.

Pag-IBIG released record P25.6-b multi-purpose loans in 6 months PAG-IBIG Fund disbursed a record P25.57 billion in multi-purpose loans for the benefit of 1,227,023 members in the first half of 2019. MPL disbursements in the six-month period registered a 6-percent year-onyear growth and surpassed the P24.07 billion released in the same period last year by P1.50 billion. The amount of cash loans and the number of members assisted by the agency through the MPL program are both the highest for any January-to-June period. “We are exerting all efforts to assist Pag-IBIG members with their immediate financial needs, following the directive of President Rodrigo Roa Duterte to provide Filipinos with affordable loans so

that they will not resort to loan sharks,” said Secretary Eduardo del Rosario, chairperson of the Housing and Urban Development Coordinating Council and the Pag-IBIG Fund board of trustees. “As a testament to our support to this directive, Pag-IBIG Fund in the first six months of 2019 alone has already assisted more than 1.2 million members through the MPL program,” del Rosario said. With Pag-IBIG Fund’s MPL program, qualified members can borrow up to 80 percent of their total Pag-IBIG regular savings which consist of their monthly contributions, their employer’s contributions and accumulated dividends earned. The loan is payable within 24 months

and comes with a deferred first payment. The MPL comes at an interest rate of 10.5 percent per annum. Up to 90 percent of the income derived by Pag-IBIG Fund from the loan program is returned to its members in the form of dividends. “Our Multi-Purpose Loan program serves as an affordable and readily-accessible source of cash loans. The MPL proceeds can be used for tuition fees, medical expenses, minor home improvement, capital for business, or even for vacation expenses,” said Pag-IBIG Fund chief executive Acmad Rizaldy Moti. “We recognize that our members secure an MPL to address an immediate need. It is why we work doubly hard to process their loan applications promptly.

With the stabilization of our upgraded system last year, members are now able to receive their loan proceeds in an average of 1.8 working days,” Moti said. “This faster processing time allowed us to serve more members, which is shown by the 8-percent growth in the number of loan releases or an additional 93,886 members aided by the MPL program in the first half of this year compared to the same period in 2018,” he said. Pag-IBIG Fund released P26.26 billion in short-term loans benefitting 1,267,616 members in the first half of the year. This included the amount disbursed through the MPL Program and the P688.25 million in calamity loans it released to 40,593 members.

Stocks jump, enter bull market

T

HE local equities market entered the bull market on Monday as investors cheered the central bank’s commitment to resume its policy easing in the second half of the year. The bellwether Philippine Stock Exchange Index surged 223.47 points, or 2.7 percent, to 8,365.29 on a value turnover of P8.5 billion. Gainers overwhelmed losers, 124 to 62, with 56 issues unchanged. The market has gained more than 22 percent since its low in November amid cooling inflation, an interest rate cut in May and a stronger local currency. “Anticipation of second quarter earnings and rate cut hopes broke the 8,300 level, sending the index to 8,365.29, or 223.47 points up,” Philstocks Financial Inc. said. The stock market also surged after a

record-breaking close in Wall Street overnight on prospects the US Fed will lower interest rates at the end of the month. Banks led the advance, with BDO Unibank Inc., the biggest lender in terms of assets, climbing 3.9 percent to P154. Metropolitan Bank & Trust Co., the secondlargest bank, rose 5.6 percent to P77, while Bank of the Philippine Islands, the thirdbiggest, gained 3.5 percent to P83.90. SM Investments Corp. of the Sy Group increased 4.9 percent to P1,007. The rest of Asian markets recovered after an early stumble on Monday as data showed China’s economy growing at its weakest pace in nearly three decades, hit by the US trade war, while investors debated the depth of an expected Fed rate cut. The world’s number-two economy expanded 6.2 percent in April-June, the worst reading since the early 1990s but in line with forecasts and within the government’s target range. The reading highlights the negative impact the US tariffs stand-off is having on

China as leaders also try to recalibrate its growth model from exports and state investment to one driven by consumer spending. “While GDP touched a 27-year low in Q2, the on-consensus print does lessen market fears that China’s economy is headed for a hard landing,” said Stephen Innes at Vanguard Markets. Observers also pointed out that the weakness raised the chances of further monetary easing measures from the central People’s Bank of China, while investors were also tracking the progress of trade talks between Washington and Beijing. “While the PBoC has already delivered stimulus this year, markets are awaiting a bazooka of (bank reserve ratio) cuts and additional measures, which will probably come if trade talks collapse,” said OANDA senior market analyst Edward Moya. “If talks steadily progress, we will still probably see the PBoC deliver fresh stimulus following the Fed’s highly anticipated rate cut at the end of the month.” Hong Kong added 0.3 percent, Shanghai

rose 0.4 percent, and Taipei was also up. Sydney dropped 0.7 percent and Wellington shed 0.3 percent. Singapore and Seoul were also down. Tokyo was closed for a holiday. The initial drops came despite a recordbreaking close for all three main indexes in New York on Friday. There are bets the US Federal Reserve will cut borrowing costs at the end of the month, though there is speculation about how far it will go. While bank boss Jerome Powell’s congressional testimony last week flagged a reduction, data indicating inflation remains reasonably healthy has kept investors guessing. Bitcoin plunged almost $2,000 to around $10,000 after US President Donald Trump last week expressed his mistrust of cryptocurrency, saying it was “not money” and warning that those wishing to join the trade would have to abide by banking regulations.

Meralco eyes second deal to supply 1,200 MW of power By Alena Mae S. Flores MANILA Electric Co., the biggest retailer of electricity, on Monday issued another invitation to bid for the supply of 1,200 megawatts of power over a 20year period from March 2024. Meralco, in a published invitation to bid, said it asked qualified bidders to join the competitive auction for the 1,200-MW supply. This is the second public notice of Meralco to comply with the competitive selection process, or the public bidding mandate of the government, in procuring supply. Meralco earlier published an invitation on Friday for another 1,200-MW capacity for 10 years. It is set to publish another invitation for 500 MW capacity this week. Under the terms of reference, Meralco said it was seeking bids for a base load supply whose power plant is expected to start commercial operations “not earlier than scheduled commercial operations date.” Meralco set the commercial operations date for the plant by March 2024 for the first unit and full contract capacity by September 2024. In case the plant has four units, Meralco said two units must attain commercial operations by March 2024. Meralco said there should be a maximum of two plant sites (with one delivery point for purposes of settlement and transfer risk and loss) and the delivery point should be within the Luzon grid and nearest to Meralco’s load center. “If multiple units, minimum of 300 MW per unit, which shall have the same fuel type, and guaranteed net plant heat rate. Bidder shall offer fuel source from high-efficiency, low emission technology,” it said. Meralco said no capacity or output of the plant should be contracted apart from the supply agreement with the retailer. Meralco said the power plant’s outage allowance should not surpass30 days and maintenance schedule must not exceed 20 days and not more than four times during the contract period. Forced outage allowance should also not exceed 15 days. The power supplier will also procure replacement power for delay in the commercial operations date. In the event of delay in the commercial operations date of the plant, Meralco said the parties should meet and confer about the terms on which the PSA may be continued.

ICTSI’s Pakistani subsidiary begins rail cargo service By Darwin G. Amojelar PAKISTAN International Container Terminal, a unit of International Container Terminal Services Inc., has launched a dedicated rail cargo service connecting the cities of Karachi and Lahore.

Pro-China mayor to challenge Tsai in polls

IN BRIEF India scraps Moon mission SRIHARIKOTA, India―India on Monday postponed the launch of a lunar probe less than an hour before blast-off because of a technical problem, delaying its bid to become only the fourth nation to land a spacecraft on the Moon. The Chandrayaan-2―or Moon Chariot 2―mission is part of India’s ambitious space program, and its success would have propelled the South Asian nation into rarefied company: Russia, the United States and China are the only countries to have landed craft on the lunar surface. The spacecraft looked set for launch atop a Geosynchronous Launch Vehicle (GSLV) Mk III―India’s most powerful rocket―from the Satish Dhawan Space Center, but countdown was halted 56 minutes and 24 seconds before the planned liftoff at 2:51 am (2121 GMT Sunday). “A technical snag was observed in launch vehicle system at one hour before the launch,” the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) said. “As a measure of abundant precaution Chandrayaan-2 launch has been called off for today. Revised launch date will be announced later.” The agency did not say when it would attempt the launch again, and did not share any details about the technical issue. The spacecraft’s Moon landing had originally been scheduled for September 6. Scores of enthusiasts, including schoolchildren, had gathered to witness the launch. AFP

Clashes tarnish Macron’s parade PARIS―French President Emmanuel Macron on Sunday showcased European military cooperation in a Bastille Day parade but the aftermath of the glittering event was tarnished by violent clashes between police and protesters. Key EU leaders, including German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte, joined Macron in Paris to watch the annual parade that included representatives of nine other European armies in a show of unity. But the celebrations of France’s national day were followed by clashes that erupted between anti-government protesters and police that recalled violence seen at the peak of the “yellow vest” protest movement earlier this year. Police fired tear gas to clear protesters from the iconic Champs-Elysees, as spectators who had witnessed the parade and startled foreign tourists took cover. The Paris police said 180 people had been detained over the violence, and 25 held for questioning were later released with 13 still in custody late in the day. Protesters tore down security barriers, set fire to rubbish bins and portable toilets, and chanted anti-government slogans like “Macron resign!” before calm was restored. AFP

Monsoon toll rises across Asia NEW DELHI—At least 12 people were killed when a house collapsed in northern India following heavy monsoon rain which has left more than 100 dead across South Asia, officials said Monday. Floods and landslides caused by torrential downpours have killed at least 67 people across Nepal while 30 more are missing, police said. In Bangladesh, at least 29 people have died since July 9 including 18 who were hit by lightning and seven who drowned after their boat capsized in choppy waters in the Bay of Bengal. Another 10 people have died in overcrowded Rohingya refugee camps in southeast Bangladesh where thousands of shanty homes have been destroyed. In the latest monsoon-related tragedy in India, a four-story building on a hillside in the northern state of Himachal Pradesh collapsed, killing 12 people and trapping at least seven others. The structure―located near popular tourist destination Shimla―came down on Sunday following days of heavy downpours. Rescue workers searched the rubble for survivors, while heavy machinery removed heaps of mangled steel and wires from the muddied debris. Local official K.C. Chaman said 12 people had died in the collapse, adding that rescuers were looking “for at least seven other people” trapped in the debris. AFP

Toxic employers face prison in South Korea

S

EOUL―After enduring months of constant harassment at work, South Korean office worker Christine Jung finally confronted her aggressor―only to be fired and sued for defamation by her employer. Her situation is not unusual in South Korea, where employees have traditionally been expected to turn a blind eye to abusive behavior by those in power― a phenomenon so commonplace that locals have coined a word for it, “gabjil.” But that could soon change thanks to a revised labor law. The new legislation that comes into effect on Tuesday will criminalize business owners who unfairly dismiss employees harassed at work. A recent government survey found that two-thirds of workers had experienced harassment on the job, while 80 percent had witnessed it. In one of the most high-profile cases, an heiress to the Korean Air fortune threw a temper tantrum at cabin crew after being served nuts in a bag instead of a bowl in 2014―earning instant “nut rage” notoriety. Rigid company hierarchies, intense

competition for jobs and deference to status all contribute to toxic work environments in an economy dominated by family-run conglomerates. In Jung’s case, her harasser was the CEO’s father. “He once told me the building was shaking whenever I walked-because I was ‘too fat’. Another time he tried to follow me to the women’s bathroom. And another time he abruptly groped my stomach in his office,” the 37-yearold told AFP. “But when I brought up the issue, the management accused me of being a man-hater and a liar.” Jung finally approached the labor ministry last year, but was told her situation did not count as workplace bullying because the aggressor was not her superior and was not employed by the company, even though he came to the office “virtually every day”, she said.

The new law will subject owners of companies that “unfairly demote or dismiss” workers who allege harassment to three years imprisonment or a fine of up to 30 million won ($25,000). Employees ordered to write essays for their manager’s children, perform “sexy dances” for executives or even pluck out their boss’s gray hairs are among the examples documented by labor rights group Workplace Gabjil 119 and other non-profits. Violent behavior has also been reported. In 2016, a university professor was jailed for abusing his former student and employee, beating him with a baseball bat for taking short breaks and forcing him to eat human feces. Nursing is notorious for its harsh training and so-called “burn-toashes” brutal work culture, with two recent suicides sparking debate about the sector. And after the South Korean women’s curling team, nicknamed the “Garlic Girls”, stole the show at last year’s Winter Olympics, they too raised allegations of abuse and exploitation by their coaches.

As migrants wait in fear, no sign of large-scale US raids is evident NEW YORK―Thousands of undocumented immigrants were waiting in fear and uncertainty ahead of nationwide raids Sunday that President Donald Trump said would lead to a wave of expulsions. Demonstrators in dozens of cities protested the planned raids, and local and state officials called for restraint, but to no effect. Before dawn on Sunday, agents from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) are expected to hit the streets of at least 10 major American cities with plans to arrest some 2,000 undocumented migrants who entered

the United States recently. The scope of the operation appears far more modest than the “millions” Trump had promised would be detained and expelled when he first mentioned the raids―and subsequently postponed―last month. But that has not eased the anguish felt by those who fear they might be targeted. Adding to their concerns are media reports that ICE agents are prepared to scoop up not just those targeted by removal orders but also other undocumented migrants that agents may come upon incidentally.

That, potentially, could include some migrants who have been in the country for years, with homes, jobs and children who are US citizens. “This uncertainty, this fear, is wreaking havoc,” Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot said on CNN. “It’s traumatizing people.” Trump insisted on Friday that “most mayors” want the raids. “Most mayors do. You know why? They don’t want to have crimes in their cities,” he said, repeating his frequent―and incorrect―assertion that migrants are more likely to be criminals than native-born Americans.

Several mayors have expressed concern about the federal operation. Miami Mayor Francis Suarez pointed out that in 2018, his first year in office, his Florida city experienced its “lowest homicide rate in 51 years―so I don’t understand the rationale for choosing Miami.” “It doesn’t make it easier for us, as mayors, to keep our citizens and those who are in our city ... quiet and calm.” Some city officials, as well as promigrant and civil rights groups, have sought to educate those who might be targeted on their rights in the event of a raid.

TAIPEI―A populist mayor who favors closer ties with Beijing was announced as the presidential candidate for Taiwan’s opposition on Monday as it looks to unseat President Tsai Ingwen in the coming elections. Han Kuo-yu won the primary for the opposition Kuomintang party, comfortably seeing off a challenge from Taiwan’s richest man, billionaire Foxconn founder Terry Gou. His victory sets up an unpredictable clash as Taiwan goes to the polls in January in a contest that will be dominated by relations with China. Han, 62, has enjoyed a stunning rise in the last two years, journeying from relative obscurity to his party’s presidential candidate in a phenomenon that has been dubbed the “Han tide”. Some have likened him to US President Donald Trump and other populist leaders who hail from outside establishment circles and command a fervent voter base buoyed by lofty promises of resurrecting their fortunes. Han won 45 percent of the votes cast in the KMT’s primary―which polls members of the public by telephone― compared with Gou’s 28 percent, a setback for a man who made his fortune assembling iPhones and other key electronic devices in Chinese mainland factories. Han was a relative unknown until he seized the Kaohsiung mayoralty in local elections last year in a shock win in the southern city that has long been a heartland for Tsai’s ruling Democratic Progressive Party. He has been able to muster huge, enthusiastic crowds during campaigning, where he has vowed to restore warm ties with Beijing and kick-start the economy. “Taiwanese people have been living difficult lives in the past three years,” he told reporters after the result was announced as he urged his party to unite.

Trump under fire for ‘racist’ commentary WASHINGTON―US President Donald Trump took aim at progressive Democratic congresswomen Sunday, telling them to “go back” where they came from in remarks that sparked yet another firestorm over his views on race and immigration. Trump―whose comments were branded “racist” and “xenophobic” by Democratic presidential candidates and senior legislators―last year reportedly referred to countries in Africa as “shithole” nations, and has spoken of an “invasion” of migrants. He was also a leading proponent of the “birther” conspiracy theory that Barack Obama was not born on US soil and therefore could not legally be president. On Sunday, Trump referred on Twitter to “’Progressive’ Democrat Congresswomen” in remarks that appeared to be aimed at a group of outspoken relatively young, liberal women of color, all first-time members of the House of Representatives. These include Alexandria OcasioCortez of New York, Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts. They “originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world,” Trump tweeted. He accused the women of “viciously telling the people of the United States, the greatest and most powerful Nation on earth, how our government is to be run.” AFP Manila

LocaL government units

Isko leads flag rites at Boni marker By Vito Barcelo MANILA Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso on Monday led the f lag raising ceremony at the Andres Bonifacio Shrine, the first time it was ever held at the national hero’s monument beside the Manila City Hall. The ceremony was held a week after the City Engineer’s Office cleaned the monument that regularly saw human feces and urine around it by flushing it with water, plenty of soap, bleaching products, and muriatic acid to remove all traces of odor. Domagoso also ordered the removal of some 58 stalls obstructing the path of pedestrians at the Kartilya ng Katipunan Park, where a monument of national hero Emilio Jacinto could be found. The monument was neglected for more than six years, as hundreds of stalls and eateries were put up during the term of then-Mayor Joseph Estrada. For her part, Manila Vice Mayor Honey Lacuna said she was delighted because it was the first time that Manila City hall employees experienced the flag raising ceremony at the shrine, stressing the place should be respected and not dishonored as a de facto comfort room. During the flag raising ceremony, Domagoso also promised to give local government employees the benefits that are due them. He said he would give them allowances that had been withheld in the past, as well as promotions to deserving employees. “What is due to you will be given to you,” Domagoso said. The mayor instructed the city’s finance department to pay the city government’s obligations to its employees first before paying commercial contracts.

Taguig set to build 17-story city hall By Joel E. Zurbano

T

HE Taguig City government announced on Monday it is set to construct a state-of-the-art city hall building along Pedro Cayetano Boulevard in Barangay Ususan.

The new executive building will be a 17-story structure unified by the “strategy of contrasts” concept ― an effort to strike a balance between old and new, true to Taguig’s way. “We have dreamed of this new city hall for a very long time,” said former mayor and now Taguig 2nd District Rep. Laarni Cayetano in a speech during the groundbreaking ceremony days before she turned over her functions as city chief executive to Mayor Lino Ed-

gardo Cayetano. “It does not just boast modern facilities and innovative technologies, but also mirrors the good governance of Taguig City,” she added. Mayor Lino Cayetano, for his part, considers the new building as a testimony of the selfless leadership in Taguig for the past nine years. “The city, under the leadership of Mayor Lani, opted to prioritize school buildings, health centers, hospitals, a sen-

ior citizen center and a PWD (person with disability) center among others, over a City Hall for her,” Mayor Lino explained, highlighting that Taguig became progressive because of the honest and effective Cayetano leadership. The future city headquarters will showcase the competence, identity and potentials of Taguig, and will align with Mayor Lino’s vision of responsive, relevant and resilient infrastructure in the city. The entrance will be a massive travertine wall with two glass protrusions. A lower four-story glass cube will welcome guests to the Convention Facility and city hall. This cube itself will have a seating capacity for a banquet of 600 people.

Pasig under Vico launches FOI center MAYOR Vico Sotto on Monday launched the “Ugnayan sa Pasig” center in accordance with the city’s Freedom of Information ordinance. The center will allow Pasigueños to ask about projects by the city government or raise various complaints, from garbage collection to arrogant city hall employees, GMA News reported. Residents wanting information about a certain city project will only have to wait 10 minutes, the report said. On Sunday, Sotto revealed in a Facebook post that P1.4 billion worth of supplies and equipment in Pasig are yet to be accounted for. He said the current administration is not blaming anyone “but we are merely looking for the inventory.” During Monday’s flag-raising ceremony, Sotto also announced that the city’s street sweepers will now have to work for five days only, instead of six. The mayor added he is poised to dismiss several traffic enforcers within the week due to various complaints of abuses. BGen Arnulfo Marcelo B.

Eisma: P1.6-b SFEX widening work underway By Butch Gunio SUBIC BAY FREEPORT—The P1.6billion Subic Freeport Expressway Capacity Expansion Project is in full swing and will further ease travel in and out of this growing business and leisure hub. Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority Chairman and Administrator Wilma T. Eisma said the North Luzon Expressway Corp., which operates the SFEX, is undertaking the expansion project designed to improve traffic flow in the area and promote road safety. “It will also complement the SBMA’s infrastructure development program which includes widening of Freeport roads and improvement of our airport, seaport, and other logistics facilities,” Eisma said. The SBMA official pointed out that the project also involves raising the Maritan Highway-Rizal Highway-Tipo Road junction by one or two meters, and fixing the drainage system in this area. “This is the solution to the flooding problem that we have been experiencing in recent years,” Eisma said. With the project recently started, part of the Maritan-Rizal-Tipo junction was closed to traffic and motorists were redirected to alternate routes along the Causeway Road and the Argonaut-Kalayaan Access Road. “I know this would exact some toll on the quality of work and leisure environment in Subic, as we have several infrastructure projects going on at the same time. But let us bear in mind that all these are meant to improve the business environment in the Subic Bay Freeport Zone,” Eisma said. “These are, in fact, our investments for a better future.” According to NLEX Project Manager Elvin Cruz, the SFEX widening project entails construction of additional lanes to convert the 8.8-kilometer road into a four-lane highway.

National Science and Technology Week to highlight UN dev’t goals By Jessica M.

Sarangani’s earth-friendly beach party A MOTHER NATURE-APPROVED PARTY. The SarBay Festival at Gumasa Beach in Glan, Sarangani promotes an environment-friendly approach to beach parties, enlisting the help of festival-goers and volunteers to maintain the

cleanliness of the vicinity.

T

here are many things we human beings do that mean well but often harm the environment. Case in point: beach parties, which are a common occurrence among fun-loving Filipinos, often generate a massive amount of waste materials. But down at Gumasa Beach in Glan, Sarangani, party-goers troop to this strip of white sand for the Sarangani Bay (SarBay) Festival not just for a tropical merry-making, but also to celebrate and nurture Mother earth. Since its inception in 2006, organizers have been stressing the importance of maintaining the cleanliness of the vicinity even as they rock the nights away. “SarBay is the biggest, cleanest, and brightest beach festival. Year after year we have done so much to work on transforming our environmental advocacy into a culture of responsible tourism,” says Michelle Lopez-Solon, who heads both the tourism councils of Sarangani province and region 12. And while environmental protection has been an integral part of the event, she said that organizers introduce innovative means every year to get their message across among SarBay citizens. This year, Lopez-Solon said, visitors were given cell phone load and freebies in exchange of every trash disposal; and popular consumer brands were given the opportunity to promote their environmental advocacy through onsite edu-

cation. A ban on the use of single-used plastics were also enforced to reduce the volume of non-biodegradable wastes. “On the shoreline, we had huge installations where visitors took a selfie and placed their trash. Three creative installations were used as disposal bins and became a backdrop of the festival. This is a unique and fun way of how our SarBay citizens keep the environment clean and the beach at its best condition,” she enthused. To get the youth’s active participation, there were interactive games and a “planet camp,” during which social media was extensively used. According to the municipal environment resources office of Glan, the garbage collected for the entirety of the event was 48 cubic meters, consisting of 30 percent biodegradable, 30 percent residuals, and 40 percent recyclable—a huge volume which could have gone directly into the sea if not for the roundthe-clock cleanup they undertook. Scuba divers, also called ‘scubasusero,’ doing underwater cleanup. To ensure cleanliness of the bay, volThe three-day summer event and This Band, as well as disc jockeys unteer scuba divers did a “scubasurero” cleanup to pick up rubbish which have brought together sought-after bands Kouta Kutsuma, Cupcakes, DJ Batrocksteddy, 6Cyclemind, Ben & Ben, tle, Tom Taus, and Carlo Atendido.

drew more than 150,000 visitors from all over the country. Other fringe activities were the 15km Swim Across the Bay relay, Asia’s most extreme swimming event; and sporting events such as SarBay Strongman, beach volleyball and football, skim boarding, Frisbee, jet ski race, bancathon, mountain bike, skim boarding, and Frisbee tournaments. There were also a series of wellness and recreational activities for the family. SarBay Fest is a consistent recipient of the annual Pearl Award for the Best Tourism event from the Association of Tourism Officers in the Philippines. “The Provincial Government of Sarangani and the Department of Tourism are committed to inculcate the importance of preserving our seas, and Sarangani Bay will be a benchmark in the implementation of tourism activities which are environment-friendly and family-oriented,” concluded Lopez-Solon.

New treatment option for advanced cervical cancer In The Philippines, cervical cancer is the second leading cause of cancerrelated mortality among women. According to the Department of health, an estimated 7,277 new cases of, and 3,807 deaths due to the disease are expected to occur every year. Dr. Jasper Andal, molecular pathologist and quality assurance officer at St. Luke’s Medical Center - Global, and one of the experts that spoke during the “Access to Diagnostics and Therapy” panel discussion at the recent 8th hPV Summit, made a presentation on the conventional and new diagnostic options in cervical cancer, particularly that in its advanced stages. The Pap stain test and human papillomavirus (hPV) DnA testing are some of the screening procedures that are used in detecting cancer at its earlier stages. But at its advanced stages, Dr. Andal explained the new diagnostic option called PD-L1 testing which screens the patient’s cancer cells for a high level of the protein biomarker called PD-L1

or programmed cell death ligand-1. “At the earlier stages of cancer development, the immune system may have the capacity to eliminate cancer cells because they are foreign looking. But

cancer cells can develop a mechanism to hide from the immune system by using PD-L1 to stop the immune system from attacking it,” explained Dr. Andal. he continued, “This is where immune

checkpoint inhibitors come in. If tumors have a high expression of PD-L1, then an immunotherapy drug can prevent the mechanism that enables cancer cells from hiding from the immune system. This stimulates the immune system to recognize and kill the cancer cells.” Dr. Andal cited a recent study, wherein 98 patients with previously treated recurrent or metastatic cervical cancer were given an immunotherapy drug to test its efficacy and durability of response to the treatment. Seventy nine percent of the patients had a high PD-L1 expression which determined eligibility for immunotherapy. About 15 percent of the PD-L1 positive patients responded to immunotherapy and among these, 91 percent of patients had a durable response to the treatment for more than six months. “It is truly remarkable how patient survival is prolonged with this novel treatment. This means that we have more options now for those with advanced cervical cancer which used to

be regarded as a hopeless case,” opined Dr. Andal. “From a clinician and a pathologist’s perspective, this opens up a lot of avenues on how best we can service patients.” Immunotherapy as a treatment option for cervical cancer is already approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). In the Philippines, the FDA already approved immunotherapy as treatment option for non-small cell lung cancer, gastric, bladder, hodgkin lymphoma, melanoma, head and neck cancers, and cervical cancer. Clinical trials are underway in the country to prove the efficacy and safety profile of the drug in fighting different types of cancer in the local setting. The developments in diagnosis and treatment of advanced cervical cancer may be promising, but Dr. Andal still emphasized that prevention and early detection are still primary solutions towards building an hPV and cervical Turn to C2

Celebrity runners on joining benefit run events

“B

eyoNd the physical achievement, the experience was made more meaningful knowing we helped people in need by doing something we loved.” This is how TV and movie actress Meg Imperial describes her experience as one of the celebrity team leaders of Run With Me X.

Run With Me X, now in its fourth year, is Resorts World Manila’s annual celebrity charity run. This year’s event, happening on August 25 at the SM Mall of Asia concert grounds, is part of the integrated resort’s 10 th anniversary celebration. Imperial won Run With Me 2017. “I was happy and proud to win Run With Me 2017, of course,” she said, adding, “It was also a lot of fun to run alongside my friends from the showbiz industry and of course, the fans.” Joining Imperial in her return to Run With Me as a celebrity team leader is TV host and model Rovilson Fernandez who has joined Run With Me every year as a team leader since it was opened up to the public in 2017. “I’m an active guy, and getting me to sign up to endorse an activity that encourages people to get fit would have been easy enough,” said Fernandez. He added, “The fact that we raise millions for charity makes it a no-brainer.

Shoring up Puerto Galera’s marine ecology THe recent Shore It Up campaign of Metro Pacific Investments Foundation, Inc. drew 145 volunteer scuba divers who collected 616 kilograms of garbage from various dive spots in Puerto Galera. Puerto Galera, one of the country’s top diving spots, is regarded by conservationists as the “center of the center of marine biodiversity” with its remarkable profusion of aquatic life in the heart of the world’s “Coral Triangle” in Southeast Asia. To care for its seas and rich marine ecosystem, the municipal government and the Metro Pacific sealed a partnership for the Shore It Up program. The corporate social responsibility

arm of the MVP Group of Companies has committed P1.5 million for three years under its Shore It Up program to provide aid to local Bantay dagat in the form of technical knowhow, monthly allowances, uniforms, and scuba diving courses and equipment to better protect and conserve the town’s aquatic resources. To be called Marine Protection, Inspection and Conservation Guardians, the volunteers will also be empowered by the municipal government in their marine enforcement and monitoring activities. The conglomerate made its initial foray into Puerto Galera in 2010 when it pioneered a comprehensive underwater and coastal cleanup drive, fol-

lowed up in 2013 by another scuba cleanup and the Junior environmental Scouts, an education component for public school children. Incepted in 2009, Shore It Up has gathered over 85,000 volunteers from the Metro Pacific firms, national government agencies, local government units, law enforcement agencies, civil society groups, dive industry stakeholders, and public elementary schools.

His running organization RUNRIo has been RWM’s event partner, helping the company with race logistics and even providing expert advice to race participants with the Run With Me Run Clinics in the months leading up to the race. “I’ve always advocated running as a sport and hobby, and I’m happy that so many Filipinos are now into running,” enthused Coach Rio. “We’ve helped organize hundreds of races over the years, but Run With Me holds a special place in my heart because it lets us give back to the community through the millions we raise for charity.” RWM, through Run With Me and two smaller employee charity runs in 2014 and 2015, has raised nearly P10 million pesos for charity, with the help of nearly 10,000 runners. Beneficiary charities over the years include HeRo Foundation, yesPinoy Foundation, eRdA Tech Foundation, Right Start Community development, Inc., Tzu Chi Foundation Philippines, ePCALM Adult Leukemia Foundation of the Philippines, empowering Brilliant Minds Foundation, and more.

Now in its fourth year, the kasambahay awards gives P75,000 cash and trophy to each of 10 awardees every year. “The awards program focuses on the importance and dignity of the loyal household service workers or kasambahays, and draws inspirational lessons from their simple lives and daily accomplishments,” said Bobby L.

The JCI chairperson for this year’s search, William ong, said that nominations are restricted to domestic workers who have rendered at least seven straight years of service to their present employers, not more than 75 years old, still at work, and ambulant enough to claim the award in Metro Manila.

FoR actor and loving son dingdong dantes, age should not stop our loved ones from enjoying life. “My dad wants to keep an active lifestyle so he can bond with our family and I try to give him the emotional and nutritional support that he needs—that’s my gift of strength to him,” he shared. Understanding the needs of elders, dantes has partnered with Abbott, the maker of ensure Gold, the first adult nutritional supplement in the Philippines with HMB (beta-hydroxy-betamethylbutyric acid, which helps older adults maintain their muscle mass. Research shows that nine out of 10 aging adults aren’t meeting the daily recommended amount of key nutrients for a healthy and active life. Adults aged 40 and above start losing muscle mass. From the ages of 40 to 70 and above, adults can lose up to 33 percent of muscle mass. Muscle loss may not always be visible, but it can manifest through symptoms such as weakness, slower walking speed, unintentional weight loss, exhaustion, low physical activity,

body pain and cramps. The new ensure Gold is an adult nutrition supplement, scientifically formulated with high quality protein, calcium, vitamin d, and 28 vitamins and minerals to help build muscle mass and help adults “Stay Strong.” A unique nutritional ingredient in ensure Gold is HMB, a metabolite of the essential amino acid leucine. HMB is naturally found in small amounts in some foods and in the body, but levels may decline with age. It has been shown to support muscle health. dantes recently met with his former Abztract dance Group choreographer, Geleen eugenio, who shared how focusing on nutrition helps her continue her passion for dancing and helps others find joy in being active. “When dingdong told me about the new ensure Gold, I was eager to try it out, knowing that I also need to step up when it comes to taking care of myself and my muscle health. At 65, I have improved strength that allows me to continue to dance and stay active even now,” shared eugenio.

The implementation of the National Integrated Cancer Control Act, one of the critical goals towards an HPV-free future, was discussed during the 8th HPV Summit as a pillar that would pave the road towards cervical cancer elimination in the Philippines. The law aims to promote access to prevention and early detection check-ups, increase access to diagnosis and treatment, provide better healthcare assistance through the involvement of PhilHealth and a proposed Cancer Assistance Fund, and build a better supportive care system for cancer patients regardless of age, gender, and type and stage of the disease.

From a system-wide perspective, if you improve the healthcare infrastructure and make medical support for diagnostic tests universal, regardless of patients’ financial capacity, that would enable more Filipinas to get early screening for cancer. That’s a long-term goal. The short-term goal is to improve testing and screening in the country and increase the number of specialists and facilities especially in

Members of Ben&Ben make their appearance during the formal launch of the 2019 Pista ng Pelikulang Pilipino. The band and their music play a major role in 'LSS,' Globe Studios' official entry to the PPP.

Creating soundtrack of life with ‘LSS’

J

UST like any relationship, life and love are utterly complicated. But that doesn’t mean that one will just give up the search for that great love. And what better way to relive the pain, the struggle and the “kilig” moments of yesteryears than watching a movie that anyone can relate with?

From the same production company that gave moviegoers Birdshot, Goyo, and Hintayan ng Langit—Globe Studios —comes another high-quality, timely and endearing film. Its latest offering LSS, short for Last Song Syndrome, continues Globe Studios’ high standards with a timely story of two young lovers experiencing the reality of adulthood. Coupled with a soundtrack especially created by the biggest band in the local music scene Ben&Ben, LSS will surely provide the butterflies in the stomach as an official entry in the 2019 Pista ng Pelikulang Pilipino (PPP) set to unfold on Sept. 12 to 28. “When our co-producers Dokimos Entertainment came to us with the project, we immediately fell in love,” Globe Studios Head Quark Henares says about the

movie. “Being a big music fan, I understand how songs can really bring people together, and the image of Khalil Ramos and Gabbi Garcia finding each other to the music of Ben&Ben was irresistible.” Directed by Jade Castro, who also directed the big-hit rom-com My Big Love and the critically acclaimed and award-winning Endo, LSS details the lives and hopes of Zak and Sarah, played by real life couple Gabbi and Khalil, who both love music and eventually fall in love with each other. Sara and Zak somehow manage to embroil themselves in a chain of almost-but-not-quite-there-yet romantic sojourns while on the heels of an up-andcoming indie-folk band, played by the

phenomenal 9-piece band Ben&Ben. Last March, the Film Development Council of the Philippines (FDCP) announced the first three movies that made it to the PPP, which include LSS, Cuddle Weather and Panti Sisters. “Globe Studios has come a long way in showcasing quality films that aren’t what you expect such as Hintayan ng Langit, Goyo: Ang Batang Heneral, Panahon ng Halimaw, and Kuwaresma. With LSS, we are giving a fresh new take on an all-too-familiar genre. We are so excited to tell this story in a funny, poignant and at the same time, enthusiastic way that has not been seen—and heard, before,” Henares end.

Man of the hour EVER Bilena CEO Dioceldo “Deo” Sy is the man of the hour as he was recently launched as the newest face of luxury timepiece brand from France, Rene Mouris. A man known for his confidence, power and humility, Deo truly embodies the personality of the brand that takes pride in blending eminent craftsmanship to create timepieces that are classic, elegant and affordable to all. “I’m a very simple person,” shares Deo. “Just because I have reached this stature doesn’t mean I have to change. This is the reason why I identify well with Rene Mouris—their watches are carefully handcrafted but still in a reasonable price.” Even as a founder and CEO of one of the biggest cosmetics retail company in the country, he has achieved success and managed to stay grounded thanks to his role models Henry Syand the Gokongweis who remained humble despite being some of the most influential personalities in the country. Aside from them, he also stresses that his achievements were met by mastering the art of time management. “Everyone has the

same 24 hours a day and you have to manage it well. For me, I come to office four to five hours a day and I try to squeeze everything in. The more I work quickly, the better.” Now an endorser of the luxury timepiece brand, he is grateful to have this blessing as it serves as his reminder of what he has accomplished and what else he wishes to fulfill in his life—as a new grandfather, he wants to spend more time with his first grandson JD while handling new business ventures overseas. “Having JD felt like I was restarting my life,” he shares. It made me more energetic and I feel like I have something new to look forward to. Now that I see Denise handling the company very well, I can delve into different ventures like construction and property and also explore South East Asia and Guam as I see a lot of opportunities there.” For the CEO who believes in perfect timing, having a watch to invest in is a good reward for one’s self— “Their pieces are really worth investing in. They are beautifully designed also fairly priced so reward yourself with a statement piece from Rene Mouris.”

Hollywood... From C4

With no human characters in sight, almost every shot—from the pixelperfect hairs of Mufasa’s glistening mane to the eerily realistic hyena eyes piercing through the Elephant Graveyard gloom—was conjured from scratch using computer-generated imagery. And yet The Lion King is not strictly a 3D animation either, in any conventional sense. It is instead something totally new, says director Jon Favreau—a film shot by a traditional camera crew, but entirely inside a virtual reality 3D world. Filmmakers and actors at the studio were able to don digital headsets and “step into” a video game-style African savannah to film—or simply watch— rough computer-generated versions of Simba and his pals cavorting through the Pride Lands. “The crew would be able to put on the headsets, go in and scout and actually set cameras within VR,” Favreau told journalists in Beverly Hills this week. “Whenever anybody visited I would pop them into the equipment.” AFP
