FDA revokes Dengvaxia certificate THE Food and Drug Administration has permanently canceled the certificates of product registration of the anti-dengue vaccine Dengvaxia over the continued failure of its manufacturer, Sanofi Pasteur Inc., to submit post-approval commitment documents. In a statement Tuesday, FDA Director General Nela Charade G. Puno accused the giant French pharmaceutical firm of continuously defying FDA rules and regulations. “Its brazen defiance of FDA’s directives and its continued failure to comply leaves us no other recourse but to impose the maximum penalty of revocation of the CPRs covering the Dengvaxia products.” Puno said. In an order signed by Puno Dec. 21, 2018, the FDA ordered Sanofi to immediately surrender the original CPRs of its Dengvaxia-based products. FDA pointed out that as of Dec. 17, 2018, its Center for Drug Regulation and Research, in coordination with its Task Force Dengvaxia, confirmed that Sanofi has still not submitted its post marketing authorization requirements. The FDA also reminded Sanofi that pursuant to the revocation of the CPRs, it is unlawful to import, sell, or distribute the products. The CDRR is also directed to defer the processing of any submission and application by Sanofi regarding Dengvaxia and Dengvaxia-MD. The FDA had initially suspended the CPR for Dengvaxia in 2017 and ordered Sanofi to comply with its directives. Meanwhile, the Department of Health reported that the cases of measles have grown to more than 8,000 as of Feb. 17, resulting in 136 deaths. Health officials were considering declaring a measles outbreak in Cagayan Valley if the disease continues to spread. Macon Ramos-Araneta

Three days after President Rodrigo Duterte signed the rice tariffication bill into law, Presidential Spokesman Salvador Panelo sought to allay farmers’ fears that the RCEF would fall into corrupt hands, like the fertilizer fund did in 2004. “Good governance is the hallmark of the Duterte administration and the President has zero tolerance against corruption and wastage of taxpayers’ money. We continue to exercise accountability and transparency in all levels of the bureaucracy,” Panelo said in a statement. Panelo said the Agriculture secretary will oversee the proper and responsible use of the rice fund. “The Department of Agriculture, in consultation with farmers’ cooperatives and organizations as well as local government units, shall also validate and update the master list of eligible beneficiaries, which include farmers, farm workers, rice cooperatives and associaNext page tions,” he said.

2 senators: Sara has makings of good president SENATOR Panfilo Lacson on Tuesday said Davao City mayor and presidential daughter Sara Duterte still remains as his top choice among the “young emerging leaders” to become the next president of the country. Lacson made the remark when asked about the possibility of Duterte’s bid for presidency in 2022. “Just like what I’ve said during a news forum–among the young emerging lead-

ers, Mayor Sara Duterte is somebody we may be looking at,” Lacson told reporters in a message. Lacson earlier said during a media briefing last year that Sara Duterte was his “top choice” among the young leaders in politics, saying she had “good leadership qualities,” and was “strong-willed, stern, vibrant, and progressive-minded.” Senator Juan Edgardo Angara, meanwhile, said the Davao City mayor has

the “makings of a good president” and has the best mentor—President Rodrigo Duterte himself. “Mayor Sara has the training, experience, savvy and going around the country with HNP [Hugpong ng Pagbabago regional party] will only give her a better perspective on the country’s problems,” Angara said. Sara Duterte said she will decide on her plans to run for president by 2021. PNA

HUGPONG ng Pagbabago party chairman and Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte endorsed the candidacy of Ilocos Norte gubernatorial bet Matthew Manotoc during the party’s campaign sortie in the province hosted by incumbent Gov. Imee Marcos Monday. Manotoc, an incumbent provincial board member, is running under the Nacionalista Party and is going up against Ilocos Norte 1st. Rep. Rodolfo Fariñas of PDP-Laban, President Rodrigo Duterte’s party. The HNP held the campaign rally in

Laoag City on Monday where Duterte, the President’s daughter, endorsed Manotoc alongside the 13 senatorial candidates led by his mother, Marcos. Local leaders in the province chose Manotoc to replace his grandmother, former first lady and Ilocos Norte Rep. Imelda Marcos, who withdrew from the gubernatorial race. During the rally, Imee introduced Sara Duterte as a “daughter” of Ilocos Norte because she married a man born and raised in the province, referring to lawyer Manases Carpio. The incumbent governor made her speech in Ilocano. Next page

‘Defanged’ NFA definite to lose workers—chief NATIONAL Food Authority chief Tomas Escarez Tuesday deplored the “definite” worker layoff in the agency following President Rodrigo Duterte’s approval of the rice tariffication law. The tariffication law, which will replace the present quotas on rice imports with tax, removes the NFA’s power to import and distribute cheaper grain, leaving it with the sole task of buying grain from farmers to maintain buffer stocks, Escarez told radio dzMM, in a broadcast beamed nationwide. Buffer stocks intended for calamities and emergencies should last for 15 days. Its management does not require many employees, he said. The NFA is tasked to stabilize prices by buying grain from farmers and selling it at P27 and P32, cheaper compared to commercial rice. With NFA’s new role requiring less manpower, worker layoff is certain, Escarez said. In a related development, Senator Cynthia Villar blasted the NFA for blocking the rice tariffication as it would lose the power to contol rice importation. “Because that was the only power removed from it. But they can still buy rice from farmers.They will retain the same budget, but the instruction is to buy Next page

Ex-lawmaker faces raps over unpaid ‘Yolanda’ houses A FORMER party-list lawmaker faces a civil case for his failure to pay for the construction of 684 housing units for surviving victims of the deadly Typhoon “Yolanda” which cut a swathe of destruction in 2013. Businesswoman Divina Bunales filed the complaint against former An Waray Rep. Florencio Bam Noel before the Tacloban Regional Trial Court.

It was not clear when the court would start hearing the case. Bunales and Noel were former business partners. In her complaint dated Nov. 12, 2018, Bunales filed a civil case for collection of sum of money with damages against Noel as authorized representative of Performance Builders and Developers Corp. and co-subcontractor Mary Ann Camulte.

Martial law extension upheld by SC By Rey E. Requejo, Nat Mariano and Maricel V. Cruz THE Supreme Court on Tuesday dismissed the petitions filed by four different groups and affirmed the legality of the third extension of martial law in Mindanao. “The Supreme Court ruled to uphold the constitutionality of the extension of the declaration of martial law and suspension of the privilege of the writ of habeas corpus in Mindanao until December 31, 2019,” new Supreme Court spokesman Brian Keith Hosaka told reporters after the high court met as a group. Malacañang hailed the decision, saying the executive, legislative and judiciary branches of the government are “on the same page” in fending off the rebellion with the implementation of martial law in Mindanao. “We are pleased to note that the three separate and independent branches of government, the primordial duty of which is to protect the state and secure public safety, have forged a unified stand against the forces of rebellion and terrorism,” Presidential Spokesman Salvador Panelo said in a statement. “As we fast-track the rehabilitation of the war-torn Marawi and promote security and peace and order in Mindanao, we ask the Filipino nation not to waver in their support for our Republic’s defenders,” he said. “Let us remain vigilant and prevail against these anti-democratic forces.” Speaker Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo welcomed the decision and said it proved that the House was correct in approving the request from President Duterte. “It’s good. We [are] happy [about it] because we voted to extend it,” Arroyo told reporters at the House of Representatives Tuesday. Surigao del Sur Rep. Johnny Pimentel echoed Arroyo. “That was good news for us Mindanaoans because we have a problem of insurgency and this hinders our development,” Pimentel said. But Representatives Antonio Tinio and France Castro of ACT Teachers, members of the Makabayan Bloc, condemned the decision. The Defense department also welcomed the Supreme Court’s decision. The department said the public could rest assured the authorities would remain steadfast in their duty to safeguard the communities from the threats of rebellion, terrorism and violent extremism.

UNHCR chief relied on fake info—Palace MALACAÑANG on Tuesday slammed a United Nations special rapporteur for claiming that women human rights defenders in the country are threatened, following the cases against Senator Leila de Lima, former Supreme Court Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno, and Rappler CEO Maria Ressa. In his report during the 40th session of the United Nations Human Rights Council, Special Rapporteur Michel Forst reviewed the situation of women human rights defenders. According to Forst, “Women leaders who represent their groups and speak out on issues tend to be targeted for their visibility, not only to silence them but also to discourage broader dissent.” The cases of De Lima, Sereno, and Ressa, who are all vocal critics of President Rodrigo Duterte’s administration, were mentioned in his report. For Presidential Spokesman Salvador Panelo, however, Forst’s report was “highly misplaced.” “The report of the Special Rapporteur on the Situation of Human Rights Defenders on the Philippines is highly misplaced as it is based on fake information supplied by partisan groups who are after political mileage believing they could gain it by bad mouthing President Rodrigo Roa Duterte,” Panelo said in a statement. Panelo, also the President’s chief legal counsel, maintained that the detention of De Lima, ouster of Sereno as the Chief Justice, and the filing of charges against Ressa the veteran journalist were all “products of their own doing.” Nat Mariano

‘Responsible...

Three farms which supply an LVMH tannery in Singapore have already been certified as meeting the new standards. This “guarantees respect for animal wellbeing,” including on-site treatment by veterinarians and quality of living space and food, the statement added. LVMH said it had already set up full traceability of skins. Some 20 farms, which supply the tannery, located in Australia, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Kenya, the Philippines and the United States “will be certified by the end of 2020.” AFP

Political ads on wheels okayed P

OLITICAL advertisements are allowed to be posted on public utility vehicles such as buses and jeepneys, as well as taxis, as long as a permit is secured from the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board.

In a statement on Tuesday, the LTFRB said operators should secure a permit for posting transit political ads that comply with the regulations set by the Commission on Elections. “Those who wish to place advertisements must go through the application process to get a permit and pay the required fees,” the LTFRB said. Meanwhile, Malacañang said Monday the signing of a law that will allow reasonable rates for political advertisements will level the playing field for the candidates during the campaign season. “This new measure on discounted political

advertisements will benefit all candidates of the political spectrum and hopefully would level the playing field beginning in this year’s elections,” Presidential Spokesman Salvador Panelo said in a statement. Also, complying with President Rodrigo Duterte’s orders, Interior Secretary Eduardo Año directed the Philippine National Police to take down campaign posters and advertisement installed in all government-owned properties. Acting on Ano’s directive, PNP Chief Oscar Albayalde instructed all PNP regional directors to swiftly dismantle all election cam-

paign materials posted in government-owned facilities and structures. Albayalde included in the directive the removal of all billboard, tarpaulins, streamers, banners, and similar campaign materials in strict compliance to the provisions of the Commission on Elections under Resolution No. 10488. The LTFRB Board has issued a circular lifting the prohibition against political ads on PUVs following a Supreme Court decision in the case of 1-UTAK vs. Comelec promulgated on April 14, 2015. The following are the rules on PUV advertisements as set by LTFRB MC 2013-005: Transit advertisement shall neither constitute a traffic hazard nor compromise the safety, comfort and convenience of passengers and the public, in general; Transit advertisement must not impede,

limit or obstruct in any way the driver’s line of sight; All advertising matters to be installed shall conform to the standards relative to morality, decency and public safety, in accordance with, but not limited to, government regulations and the Code of Ethics of the Ad Standards Council; Required PUV identification and operational information shall not be hindered. Specifications of mandatory markings including, but not limited to, company and/ or trade name, license plate, body number, “May Reklamo ka ba? Itawag sa LTFRB hotline 0921-448-7777, 426-2515”, city or provincial mode of operation, designation, authorized route, mandated by previous Memorandum Circulars shall not be reduced, diminished, or obscured; PNA with Francisco Tuyay

On Friday, the President signed RA No. 11203, lifting the import limits and quantitative restrictions on rice and instead imposes tariffs on the staple. Two leftist party-list lawmakers on Tuesday hit the enactment of the Rice Tariffication Act, saying it will not solve the problem of hunger. ACT Teachers party-list Rep. Antonio Tinio and France Castro said the millions of farmers who will be affected by the adverse effects of the law will be included in the list of hungry people. Tinio and Castro said the law will abandon 3.6 million rice farmers and rice farm workers, their families and the Filipino people through

‘Defanged’... From A1 from local farmers. But that is their job, that is their mandate, tombuy frommthe local farmers at a certain orice and sell it to consumers at a lower price. that’s the NFA mandate. It was never to import,” explained Villar. Sought for her comment on the NFA head who was almost in tears with the rice tariffication, Villar repiled, “if he loves the public, why did he fail to control the price of P45, P55 and P65 during the last quarter of year? Is it not their duty to stabilize the prices of rice? Why did they stabilize the price?” As this developed, Villar welcomed participants and government officials to the Villar Social Institute for Poverty Alleviation and Governance (Villar SIPAG) Farm School in Bacoor, Cavite for the launching of the Program to Improve Rice Productivity and Mechanization for Agrarian Reform Beneficiary Organizations. The program is being launched to prepare for the implementation of the law amending Republic Act 8178 or the Agricultural Tariffication Act of 1996, which replaces the quantitative restriction on rice with tariffs. Villar, chairperson of the Committee on

PRESIDENT Rodrigo Duterte has signed into law a bill seeking to consolidate two housing agencies into a new Department of Human Settlements and Urban Development to ensure “adequate, sustainable and affordable” homes for underprivileged and homeless Filipinos. He approved the new law, Republic Act 11201, on Feb. 14, a copy of which was released by Malacañang on Tuesday. Duterte also enacted a bill institutionalizing a National Integrated Cancer Control Program to make the treatment of cancer “more equitable and affordable” for the public. Republic Act 11215, signed by Duterte on Feb. 14, 2019, seeks to “adopt an integrated and comprehensive approach to health development, which includes the strengthening of integrative, multidisciplinary, patient and family-centered career control policies, programs, systems, interventions and services at all levels of the existing health care delivery system.” • President Rodrigo Duterte has signed a bill into law establishing a Career Guidance and Counseling Program for all public and private Secondary Schools to ensure the “total development” of the Filipino youth. Duterte signed Republic Act 11206, or the “Secondary School Career Guidance and

heavy importation of the country’s primary agricultural product and staple food. “The enactment of the Rice Tariffication law will be another broken promise by the Duterte administration as this measure will only worsen poverty and hunger and will only cater to monopoly traders whose primary mission in life is to profit,” Tinio said. “This measure will not solve the never-ending rice crisis in the country; rather it would make us a rice-consuming country that is import dependent begging for cheaper rice.” Tinio said the Rice Tariffication Act was the Duterte administration’s purported solution to the record high inflation rates. “Unfortunately, this measure will not solve the continuing rice crisis and high inflation and will only lead to bigger and more problems in the future for our fellow Filipinos, especially rice farmers and workers,” Castro said. “The Duterte administration has been implementing policies that would destroy and kill agricultural industries while turning its back on the clamor of the Filipino peasants

for genuine agrarian reform and government support to help farmers increase their production without burying them in a lifetime of debt,” she said. “Instead of helping our own farmers, the government is instead running away from its responsibility to aid farmers and consumers.” Castro said there was no guarantee that rice tarifficaiton would lower the prices of rice in the market, but would definitely decimate the rice industry. Instead of having the rice tariffication enacted, Tinio said the government must focus on self-sufficiency. “Dependence on imports would only make the country forevermore vulnerable to price manipulation and will destroy the already suffering agricultural industry despite being an agricultural country. “Our peasants have long clamored for genuine agrarian reform, and government subsidy on the production of our agricultural products, it is about time that our government should listen and hear their calls,” Tinio said.

Agriculture and Food, said with the implementation of the Rice Tariffication law, more comprehensive training programs on farm mechanization and new technologies the better inbred seeds would be held to reach more farmers. Villar’s SIPAG farm school has started conducting trainings of this kind since last year. “This is the mechanism being prepared by the government to support farmers as we enter a tariffied system and rice imports start flooding the market,” Villar said. Villar said this program would help remove the factors identified as barriers to the Filipino farmer’s competitiveness and profitability such as the lack of mechanization and technical expertise, lack of financial literacy and the lack of access to cheap credit. These clusters will discuss with officials of DA, TESDA and DAR the support needed by farm organizations to improve rice production, as well as their commitment for the success of the program. Under the new law, the P10-billion Rice Competitiveness Enhancement Fund (Rice Fund) composed of duties collected from imported rice will be created and will be spent for programs that will help farmers improve productivity, profitability and competitiveness. The Rice Fund will be allocated as follows:

• Fifty percent will go to PhilMech to provide farmers with rice farm machineries and equipment; • Thirty percent will be released to PhilRice to be used for the development, propagation and promotion of inbred rice seeds to rice farmers and the organization of rice farmers into seed growers associations engaged in seed production and trade; • Ten percent will be made available in the form of credit facility with minimal interest rates and with minimum collateral requirements to rice farmers and cooperatives to be managed by the Land Bank of the Philippines and the Development Bank of the Philippines; and • Ten percent will be set aside to fund extension services by PhilMech, ATI, and TESDA for teaching skills on rice crop production, modern rice farming techniques, seed production, farm mechanization, and knowledge/ technology transfer through farm schools nationwide. Also under the law, direct financial assistance will be provided to rice farmers as compensation for the projected reduction or loss of farm income arising from the tariffication. Further, the rice tariffication law earmarks a portion of the excess rice tariff revenues for the titling of agricultural lands, expanded crop insurance program on rice and the crop diversification program.

Ex-lawmaker... From A1

The Tacloban RTC Office of the Clerk of Court received Bunales’ complaint on Nov. 23 last year. In her complaint, Bunales said she was subcontracted by PBDC for the construction of 684 units in 2016 in the National Housing Authority’s housing project at Knightsbridge Residences in Barangay Camansihay, Tacloban City. This also included the construction of a basketball court for a compensation of P300,000. PBDC contracted Bunales through Noel who was the authorized representative of the company for the Knightsbridge Project. He also had authorization from NHA. The former lawmaker and Camulte agreed to pay Bunales a profit share of P10.56 million for the complete construction of the housing units and covered court. However, the complaint said, Noel failed to pay Bunales on time. From the total of P10.56 million, they managed to pay only P3.5 million, leaving a balance of P7.06 million. Bunales said she requested for a meeting with Noel several

times to demand for her payment but to no avail, forcing her to file a case in court. The development permit for housing project in Knightridge Village was temporarily suspended on April 16, 2018. This came after heavy rains and flooding caused a landslide in December 2017 that destroyed a row of unoccupied housing units, pending the compliance by PBDC of the construction of a storm water drainage, slope protection structure, and green infrastructure. Construction resumed when An Waray Party-list, through Rep. Victoria Noel, informed the Tacloban City government in a letter dated April 23, 2018, that it had requested for soil/slope protection, reforestation and drainage for the same housing project, the same conditions imposed on PBDC. In a statement, Yolanda housing advocate Andres Go indicated that one major cause in the delay of the housing projects was the alleged “illegal hiring of sub-contractors” in the housing projects, resulting in “sub-standard construction work.” Despite assurances made by the NHA that no sub-contracting permits were allowed in Yolanda housing projects, documents obtained by their association indicated that Noel allegedly applied for the development permit, signed the constructor’s affidavit and received payment for the construction of the same construction project.

The new housing law ordered the consolidation of the Housing and Urban Development Coordinating Council and the Housing and Land Use Regulatory Board to create the new department. The new department will act as the “primary national government entity responsible for the management of housing, human settlement, and urban development. The department will have a secretary, three undersecretaries and assistant secretaries each, and the Bureaus of Environmental, Land Use, and Urban Planning and Development; Housing and Real Estate Development Regulation, and Homeowners Association and Community Development. The department will also have administrative supervision over the National Housing Authority, National Home Mortgage Finance Corporation, Home Development Mutual Fund and Social Housing Finance Corporation. The law also orders the reconstitution of the HLURB to create the Human Settlements Adjudication Commission. The HSAC will be composed of five commissioners who will be responsible for the administration and operations of the Commission. The National Human Settlements Board will also be established to address housing policies and plans, as well as the transfer of

She promised to pass laws suspending or lowering the value-added tax (VAT) and create programs to help poor families. In her 15-minute speech, Duterte asked the crowd to vote for the senatorial candidates being endorsed by HNP, a regional party she formed last year to support her father’s administration. Senatorial candidates Ronald dela Rosa, Francis Tolentino, Bong Revilla, Jinggoy Estrada, Joseph Victor Ejercito, Jiggy Manicad, Christopher Go and Dong Mangudadatu were present at the rally and took turns speaking to the crowd. Revilla and Estrada talked about the government’s “wrong” decision to detain them following the plunder charges filed against them in connection with the pork barrel scam, saying they were innocent. Revilla has been acquitted, but Estrada still faces charges. Go, the former special assistant to the President, put on a comic sketch with actor Philip Salvador, then promised to extend the term of service of barangay officials, improve the health services for the poor and continue to support the present administration. Meanwhile, senatorial frontrunner Senator Grace Poe returned to the vote-rich p;rovince of Pangasinan, the bailiwick and hometown of her late father, the movie actor Fernando Poe Jr. Poe, who is seeking her second term as an independent candidate, launched the provincial leg of her campaign sorties on Tuesday. Poe said she feels “very at home” every time she goes back to the province that has adopted her. Poe’s first stop was in Pangasinan State University-San Carlos campus, where she was greeted by City Mayor Joseres Resuello, vice gubernatorial candidate Mark Ronald Lambino, board member Darwina Sampang, Councilor Sammy Millora and other local officials. Pangasinan delivered the votes for Poe in her 2013 senatorial bid and in the 2016 presidential elections where she got the highest number of votes in the province. Pangasinan, which forms part of the so-called “solid north,” is the country’s third biggest voting population with about 1.8 million voters.

‘Int’l syndicates behind cocaine blocks found in PH’ By Rio N. Araja

THANK YOU, SGMA. Members of the Alliance of Barangay Apas Community Association thanked Speaker Gloria Macapagal Arroyo

for paving the way for the granting of housing properties to more than 3,200 families during the oversight committee meeting on Housing, chaired by Rep. Alfredo Benitez held last Monday in Barangay Apas, Cebu City. This was made possible through Proclamation 409, s. 2003, issued by then President Arroyo. Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana signed the compromise agreement, which will end the dispute that has been hindering the implementation of this proclamation. Also present were Representatives Joseph Stephen Paduano and Raul del Mar, among others.

IN BRIEF SGMA ends land dispute in Cebu A MORE than 15-year-old land dispute ended for more than 3,200 families in Cebu City after the House Oversight Committee on Housing convened by former President and Speaker Gloria Macapagal Arroyo was able to gather all stakeholders to waive their claims over their property in their favor. Speaker Arroyo had convened the Oversight Committee on Housing, chaired by Rep. Alfredo Benitez of Negros Occidental, to resolve the land dispute in Brgy. Apas, Cebu City to enable the urban poor housing beneficiaries, mostly composed of families of soldiers, to get their titles over their property. During hearing held at the Central Command in Barangay Apas Monday afternoon, Arroyo personally invited Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana to sign the compromise agreement in favor of the informal settlers. It was the last act required to make the compromise agreement effective. It was earlier signed by the Provincial Government of Cebu, as owner of the land, and the City of Government of Cebu which has jurisdiction over the residents. Maricel V. Cruz

Eleazar said he personally served another five arrest warrants against Hendricks now detained in Camp Bagong Diwa, Bicutan in Taguig City. He added the five warrant of arrests came from the Eight Judicial Region Trial Court Branch 16 Naval, Biliran issued by Judge Constantino Esber for Acts of Lasciviousness and Child Abuse filed against the foreign priest.

THE Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency will dig deeper into the involvement of international drug syndicates behind floating block of cocaines found on Philippine shores. PDEA Director General Aaron Aquino said the blocks of cocaine found on the coastlines of Quezon, Siargiao, Dinagat Islands and Camarines Norte in the past two weeks could just be a distraction to allow drug syndicates to smuggle more drugs into the country. “Why would the syndicates allow to lose such amount of money [because of these floating blocks of cocaine?]’’ he asked. “Why can’t they recover these?” He said the drugs could have come from Colombia, China and the Golden Triangle (Laos, Myanmar, and Thailand). Aquino had said that the PDEA is already coordinating with its international counterparts to identify the source of the illegal drugs. He said some of the cocaine blocks had GPS navigation systems on them, which he said were being used to warn fellow drug

traders to stay away from the area due to the presence of government authorities. “The other angle we are looking into is that these syndicateas are just trying to divert the attention of the security forces of our country to pave the way for a much bigger shipment of shabu. In short, if there is a recovery operation in those areas, the focus of attention is on the search and recovery of cocaine,” Aquino said. “If our [area of] security is now open, that is the times a big shipment of may be shabu would enter. They [traders] would allow the seizure of small volume [of drugs], then comes the huge volume,” he added. He said the country has become a transshipment of cocaine. “It appears we are the transshipment point of cocaine and eventually, it would be brought back outside, then to be taken to Mainland China, Hong Kong or Australian,” he added. He said “the distraction is at the eastern seaboard, making the western side very open... nothing is happening there.” He said the PDEA would continue to intensify security measures and intelligence surveillance in the western side.

Troops foil NPA from burning heavy equipment By Francisco Tuyay ARMY troops foiled an attempt by New People’s Army terrorists to burn down heavy equipment being used in a road construction project following a clash in South Cotabato Tuesday evening even as an NPA rebel was killed in a separate skirmish in Misamis Occidental Monday. Lt. Col. Ezra Balagtey, Information Officer of the Eastern Mindanao Command said the plan by the NPA to set fire to a heavy equipment was aborted after they were intercepted by soldiers from the 27th Infantry Battalion in Sitio Lamfinik, Brgy Lamfugon, Lake Sebu town at about 8 p.m.

Local Government said that more than half of the local government units surrounding Manila Bay have failed to comply with environmental laws. Interior Secretary Eduardo Año said 95 LGUs or 53 percent of the total 178 failed to hit the indicators measuring their compliance with environmental laws. The number consists of 56 LGUs from Central Luzon, 37 from Calabarzon (Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal, and Quezon) and two from the National Capital Region. The department identified these LGUs based on the 2018 Regional Inter-Agency Committee table assessments and on-site inspections. “There were decades worth of shortcomings that led to the problems of Manila Bay but we are not here to point fingers anymore,” Año said in a statement.

Balagtey said troops under Col. Adonis Bajao, commander of the 1002nd Infantry Brigade were securing an ongoing road construction project at the said area when they spotted about seven NPA rebels acting suspiciously. A 20-minute gun battle erupted after which the NPA team scampered to different direction. The brief clash did not inflict any casualty on both sides. On Feb. 14, an NPA rebel band torched four heavy construction equipment— three backhoes and a bulldozer being used in a road widening project at Kaliwa Dam in Infanta, Quezon. After the burning, the NPAs fled towards the boundaries of Laguna and Quezon but were intercepted by pursuing army troopers from the 1st Infantry Bat-

talion, sparking a firefight which killed a rebel who turned out to be an undergraduate student of veterinary Medicine at the University of the Philippines Los Baños identified as John Carlo Capistrano Alberto. Major. Gen. Felimon Santos Jr., commander of the Eastern Mindanao Command which has jurisdiction in South Cotabato said his troops are committed to guard government flagship program in his turf. “Our security and military operations are committed to establishing a psychologically secured environment which allows the implementation of government projects in the hinterlands that will benefit our marginal and isolated communities,” Santos said.

BI nabs 276 illegal foreign workers in Makati By Vito Barcelo THE Bureau of Immigration arrested 276 foreign nationals in a raid of a network technology company along Ayala Avenue in Makati City. Immigration Commissioner Jaime Morente said he received a report that the apprehended foreign nationals were working without the required immigration visas or permits. “Our operatives immediately conducted a surveillance to verify the report. Once they confirmed the presence of these aliens in the building, a Mission Order to conduct the operations was immediately issued,” he said .

BI Intelligence Division Chief Fortunato Manahan Jr. said the 276 were arrested for verification of their travel documents and immigration status. He said the foreigners mostly engaged in online gaming business. “Most were undocumented, and were unable to present any proof showing their status here during the arrest. If proven to be working here without the proper visa, they may be charged for deportation,” Manahan said. Morente commended the Intelligence Division for the series of arrests of illegal aliens in the country, saying the bureau’s intelligence has been working nonstop to catch foreigners who make a mockery of our laws.

PRESIDENT Rodrigo Duterte has signed a law extending the franchise of Iglesia Ni Cristo’s telecommunications services, allowing the religious sect to install and operate private telecommunications services for another 25 years. Duterte approved Republic Act No. 11219 on Feb. 14, 2019. The Palace, however, only released the document on Tuesday. Under the new law, the INC will now be able to “construct, establish, install, maintain, lease, purchase, operate, and carry on a private telecommunications and electronic communication services throughout the Philippines, between the Philippines and other countries and other territories, and including outer space as public interest may warrant.” “For this purpose, the grantee is hereby bestowed the right to construct, establish, install, maintain, lease, purchase, and operate the corresponding transmitting and receiving stations, satellites, lines, systems, networks, international gateways, local exchanges, and platforms as it may consider necessary, convenient, or reasonable,” the law stated. INC Executive Minister Eduardo Manalo has been serving under the Duterte Administration as the President’s Special Envoy for Overseas Filipino Concerns since February 2018. Duterte has also approved another 25-year franchise renewal of Ermita Electronics Incorporated, currently known as G. Telecoms to operate a radio communications system in the country through RA 11204. He also greenlighted the provision of a franchise for MORE Electric and Power Corporation to distribute electricity in Iloilo City. Meanwhile, through RA 11193, which was signed last Jan. 18, 2018, a franchise was also granted to Malindang Broadcasting Network Corporation to operate radio and television stations in Mindanao. As the President signed the franchise of media entities, the franchise renewal application of ABS-CBN, on the other hand, is still pending before the committee on legislative franchises since Nov. 16, 2016.

The Ressa case WHAT is press freedom? Like any other freedom, it is God-given and inherent to man. Still, press freedom is not absolute. You may have the right to express your feelings, but the line is drawn against expressing what is on your mind and respecting the rights of others, like when you call somebody a crook or a thief. People also have to maintain their reputations.

The only issue is whether or not libel was committed.

Similarly, when journalists like me enjoy the freedom of the press to write what I believe to be right, I cannot denigrate the rights of others just because I enjoy the freedom of the press. This is exactly why we have laws against libel and slander. When I write my column in the opinion pages, I can still be sued for libel. In fact, I have committed libel many times, gone to court to defend myself and apologized at least four times for my recklessness. The law defines libel. It should be a person, not a juridical entity, who is involved. The imputation must be criminal in nature to besmirch one’s reputation. Most importantly there should be malice. For example, if a journalist keeps on imputing a criminal act many times, then that could be taken to be malice. Libel can also be committed by a journalist who repeats or reports the libelous statements of others. There are precedents to this. But malice in the commission of li-

bel is difficult to prove. It is for this reason that most of the libel suits thrown at journalists are dismissed by the courts. This is also why in my nearly 70 years in journalism, I have never been convicted of libel. To cite an example: When I was in Cotabato City and not yet a lawyer, working as co-editor of The Mindanao Cross, I received a letter from somebody accusing a village doctor of being a “quack doctor.” Without checking the facts I published the report and I was sued as a result. I was arrested and jailed overnight. Fortunately, the Oblates who ran the paper had a good friend, Don Paco Blanco, who bailed me out. It was clearly my fault and I apoloacceptgized to the doctor, who in turn accept ed my apology. If you don’t want to be sued for libel, don’t be a journalist. I say all these as a background to the case of Maria Ressa, CEO of Rappler, and her researcher. They published the case of the late Chief Justice Renato Corona, who supposedly used the car of businessman William Keng during the impeachment trial at the Senate. The businessman denied the imputation years after the prescription-period for libel. The mistake of Rappler however was that it post-dated that story a couple of times, which made the story jurisdictional. So did Ressa and her researcher commit libel or not? Another question is whether the Duterte administration violated press freedom in having the Department of Justice, through the National Bureau of Investigation, find probable cause. There are two issues here: Whether libel was indeed committed and whether the case against her was a violation of press freedom. I believe that Rappler committed libel, having postdated the imputation of something that could malign the reputation of a person. Whether there was malice is something the NBI has to prove. As for the violation of press freedom. I cannot see the connection with the libel case. As I said earlier, press

Nothing funny

NITED States President Donald Trump has called for “retribution” against long-running comedy show Saturday Night Live for an unflattering portrayal of him in its weekend airing.

Comedian Alec Baldwin reprised his impersonation of Trump in SNL, donning a big, blond wig, crunching up his face into a pout and speaking in singsong fashion as he talked about the potential consequences of his decision to declare a national emergency so he could build his pet project, the border wall. “I’ll immediately be sued and the ruling will not go in my favor and then it will end up in the Supreme Court and then I’ll call my buddy Kavanaugh and I’ll say ‘It’s time to repay the Donny’ and he’ll say, ‘New phone, who dis?’ And by then the Mueller report will be released, crumbling my house of cards and I can plead insanity and do a few months in the puzzle factory and my personal hell of playing president will finally be over,” Baldwin said in a mock Rose Garden address. “Nothing funny about tired Saturday Night Live on Fake News NBC!” Trump tweeted. “Question

is, how do the Networks get away with these total Republican hit jobs without retribution?Likewise for many other shows? Very unfair and should be looked into. This is the real Collusion!” The US leader is known to be sensitive about how he is portrayed in the media and is quick to react to such developments at odd hours, often ignoring conventions of spelling, capitalization – and acceptable presidential behavior. While many say that Trump did exactly what Baldwin was hoping he would do, the outburst sheds light into what are truly serious and laughable in any government. Many shows in the US are thriving because their president supplies them with actionable ideas all the time, without prompt. To be offended by such portrayals, or worse to threaten comedians with an investigation or retribution is decidedly the more laughable thing.

However, when weighed against the real-world demands of a head of state, the tendency ceases to be funny and becomes tragic. For example, Trump’s decision to declare a national emergency to invoke authorty to unlock funds to build the wall smacks of childish petulance—just because a president has a wide discretion over the definition of such an emergency. He declared the “emergency” after Congress thumbed down a request to make $5.7 billion available to build Trump’s wall. As of press time, 16 states led by California have sued Trump for his declaration, claiming he was unilaterally robbing taxpayers of their money. Perhaps the consequences of this decision will not be as hilarious as those enumerated by Baldwin, but they will be disastrous, nonetheless. Nothing funny indeed about a leader who lashes out at his critics, even those who voice dissent through creative means, instead of genuinely obtaining the pulse of the people and acting in their best interests—not out of the interests of his ego.

users on mobile phones alone, out of 2.32 billion active users monthly. Five new profiles are created every second. About 300-million photos are uploaded daily. Average time spent on Facebook is 20 minutes. Facebook has a market cap of $463.7 billion, fifth or sixth largest in the world behind Microsoft, Apple, Amazon, Alphabet, and Berkshire. Excerpts and recommendations from the UK Parliament’s Report: Companies like Facebook should not be allowed to behave like ‘digital gangsters’ in the online world, considering themselves to be ahead of and beyond the law. The Competitions and Market Authority should conduct a comprehensive audit of the operation of the advertising market on social media. Given the contents of the Six4Three documents that we have published, it should also investigate whether Facebook specifically has been involved in any anti-competitive practices and conduct a review of Facebook’s business practices towards other developers, to decide whether Facebook is unfairly using its dominant market position in social media to decide which businesses should succeed or fail. Social media companies cannot hide behind the claim of being merely a ‘platform’ and maintain that they have no responsibility themselves in regulating the content of their sites. A new category of tech company is formulated, which tightens tech companies’ liabilities, and which is not necessarily either a ‘platform’ or a ‘publisher.’ This approach would see the tech companies assume legal liability for content identified as harmful after it has been posted by users.

cyber-crime, from maritime security to transnational crime and counterterrorism. Today we live in no ordinary time. Sea levels are rising, our biodiversity is shrinking, and many communities across the world are at risk of displacement or competing for access to basic resources such as water or arable land. We cannot afford to continue on the same path. Meanwhile, the Fourth Industrial Revolution will affect everyone. Our regions need the ambition, leadership and vision to address those challenges. Last month we published our ambitions for “A Sustainable Europe by 2030,” moving to a circular economy, correcting the imbalances in our food system, future-proofing our energy, buildings and mobility, and making sure that this transition is fair, leaving no one and no place behind. No one can achieve these goals alone. And thankfully that is something else we agree on—the foreign ministers spent more time talking about the environment, climate change and sustainable development than anything else. We agreed to deliver together on our United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, including on the Paris Agreement on Climate Change. Both ASEAN and the EU see regional integration as the most effective way to foster stability and prosperity. We are both committed to addressing global challenges through a system based on rules and multilateralism. We both have an interest in promoting fair and open markets, in shaping global economic and environmental rules, and in sustainable access to each other through open sea, land and air routes, in full respect of international law. As global stakeholders, the EU and ASEAN have the responsibility to advance the international rules-based order and preserve our “global commons.” I have been immensely privileged, as the EU’s first ambassador to ASEAN, to have seen our strategic relationship go from strength to strength. I am confident that it has even further to run and that, together, we will play a leading role in developing the global responses needed for the challenges of tomorrow.

By choosing not to appear before the Committee, Mark Zuckerberg has shown contempt towards both the UK Parliament and the ‘International Grand Committee,’ involving members from nine legislatures from around the world. Clear legal liabilities should be established for tech companies to act against harmful or illegal content on their sites. There is now an urgent need to establish independent regulation. A compulsory Code of Ethics should be established, overseen by an independent regulator, setting out what constitutes harmful content. The independent regulator would have statutory powers to monitor relevant tech companies; this would create a regulatory system for online content that is as effective as that for offline content industries. A Code of Ethics should be similar to the Broadcasting Code issued by Ofcom—which is based on the guidelines established in section 319 of the 2003 Communications Act. The Code of Ethics should be developed by technical experts and overseen by the independent regulator, in order to set down in writing what is and is not acceptable on social media. This should include harmful and illegal content that has been referred to the companies for removal by their users, or that should have been easy for tech companies themselves to identify. The process should establish clear, legal liability for tech companies to act against agreed harmful and illegal content on their platform and such companies should have relevant systems in place to highlight and remove ‘types of harm’ and to ensure that cyber security structures are in place. If tech companies (including technical engineers involved in creating the software for the companies) are found to have failed to meet their obligations under such a Code, and not acted against the

distribution of harmful and illegal content, the independent regulator should have the ability to launch legal proceedings against them, with the prospect of large fines being administered as the penalty for non-compliance with the Code. The Cambridge Analytica scandal was facilitated by Facebook’s policies. If it had fully complied with the FTC settlement, it would not have happened. The US Federal Trade Commission Complaint of 2011 ruled against Facebook—for not protecting users’ data and for letting app developers gain as much access to user data as they liked, without restraint—and stated that Facebook built their company in a way that made data abuses easy. Evidence obtained from the Six4Three court documents indicates that Facebook was willing to override its users’ privacy settings in order to transfer data to some app developers, to charge high prices in advertising to some developers, for the exchange of that data, and to starve some developers—such as Six4Three—of that data, thereby causing them to lose their business. It seems clear that Facebook was, at the very least, in violation of its Federal Trade Commission settlement. The Competitions and Market Authority should conduct a comprehensive audit of the operation of the advertising market on social media. Given the contents of the Six4Three documents, it should also investigate whether Facebook specifically has been involved in any anti-competitive practices and conduct a review of Facebook’s business practices towards other developers, to decide whether Facebook is unfairly using its dominant market position in social media to decide which businesses should succeed or fail.

Yes, I admit that because of the critical reportage of Rappler, especially on the bloody war on drugs, President Duterte was piqued. At one point, a Rappler reporter was barred from entering Malacañang grounds. But there are so many other critics of the war on illegal drugs! I think President Duterte is proceed-

ing wrongly in the war on drugs. It is not a peace-and-order problem. It is a health issue. As I have said so many times, Duterte may kill up to millions who are drug addicts users, but so long as there is demand, the problem will continue to be there even after his term. But back to Ressa.

MY MOTHER, who was half-Fookienese, once told me that those born in the Year of the Pig are lucky. When I asked why, she replied: “Pigs are always well-fed. So those born in the Year of the Pig do not have to worry about their food. They will be well-provided.” Reflecting on her simplistic observation afterward, I thought to myself that pigs are well-fed to fatten them for their eventual slaughter. Feng shui experts differ on how they interpret this year’s Earth Pig and the portents it brings. Some say it will be a good year; others say it will be so-so, and particularly, they warn those born in certain Chinese zodiac signs to be extra careful about money matters, or health, or marriage. But let’s not delve on the metaphysical, if feng shui can be considered as such. The empirical evidence for 2019, insofar as the economy is concerned, shows that this year’s pig ain’t gonna be so fat. Trade uncertainties amid tensions between the two largest economies in the world, the US and China, will significantly affect Philippine exports this year. So thinks Sec. Ernie Pernia, our NEDA director-general. Even last year, our export value contracted by 1.8 percent over the previous year, while imports in this yet consumption-driven economy grew by only 2.8 per cent. The Chinese economy, as well everyone knows, has been quite sluggish these past few years. Even as it posts 6 percent or so growth, this compares to the heady days when on an annual basis, 11-12 percent GDP growth has been the norm. Donald Trump’s hard-line bargaining for “fair” trade, which means “fair” in terms of benefits to American business, is in sharp contrast to the US doctrine of free markets competing worldwide, which the Chinese have utilized to their advantage over the last two decades of amazing export and manufacturing growth. “Merchandise trade in all the monitored Asian economies continued to weaken in the last month of 2018, as the region began to feel the impact of the weakening Chinese economy and the US-China trade tension,” Pernia observed. The continuing uncertainty threatens the growth of global trade, the flow of investments and output. For the Philippines, election spending this year should drive greater consumer spending, while the Build, Build, Build projects fueled by government spending on badly needed infrastructure will, we hope, remain as positive factors contributing to our 2019 GDP. The influx of Chinese and Korean tourists are expected to increase, also contributing to the economy this year. We hope agriculture, the laggard in 2018, will show considerable improvement in 2019. Thus, most analysts believe the Philippines will continue to grow at a healthy, though unspectacular 6 to 6.5 percent. We need more than similar average growth rates to be able to catch up with the rest of our Southeast Asian neighbors, particularly Vietnam, even Indonesia. But at least, the economy under successive leaderships beginning with President FVR has been consistent in policy and direction. But what remains problematic is uneven implementation of good policy. And the requisite political will that seems to be demonstrable only now under President Duterte after a long desert of patchwork and discontinuity. 2019 will also be experimental for our amended rice policy. Rice plays such a critical role because it is the staple grain, the availability—or lack of which—af-

investments is not so hard to understand. Our politicians and their families are in business and engaged in politics to perpetuate their their family’s social, political and business inbe a martyr of sorts. She claims that the Duterte administration is “weaponizing the law.” But the issue is plain—did she, or did she not, commit libel? I may be accused of suddenly siding with the President, but it would not be true because I have been so critical of the Duterte administration so many times in the past.

fects inflation rates, and public temper as well. We will be weaning away from quantitative restrictions on rice imports after 23 years of dodging the WTO’s liberalization of trade on the staple. Before 1995, we had a highly protectionist food security policy centered on NFA’s monopoly of grains. But starting this year, the National Food Authority will cease to be an operator in the rice market, and will be confined to buffer stocking. How government can manage the rice market to avoid shortages and overpricing, as against the impact on farmer incomes and agricultural productivity, will be a delicate balancing act minus the intervention of the NFA.

Expectations about the Year of the Earth Pig should be tempered with the realities of the world economy.

While awaiting the implementing rules and regulations of R.A. 11203 which liberalizes rice importation, one can only hope that the NFA and the economic managers who comprise its governing Council have been prescient enough to stock up on rice reserves for this year. The allocation of a 10 billion peso Rice Competitiveness Enhancement Fund, which when tarriffs are collected from free-for-all imports should correlate to some 1.2 million tons (assuming the world rice pricing does not spike upwards) will be effective only, and ONLY IF, the handling of the fund is done without the endemic corruption that has characterized similar safety nets legislated in the wake of our accession to the WTO. Remember the ACEF, or Agricultural Competitiveness Enhancement Fund, derived from tarriffs on MAV imports, as well as budgetary outlays? Gone to uncollected anomalous loans, to fertilizer scandals, overpriced projects and other scams. Whether the RCEF will go the way of the ACEF or whether it will answer the “safety net” that even Vice President Leni Robredo belatedly worries about will be a function of bureaucratic competence or incompetence, and whether the usual “sticky” fingers will or will not make a mess of the fund. As for attracting foreign investments, we have to understand that we are in competition with our ASEAN neighbors and even India in getting these muchneeded transfers of both capital and technology. The restrictive provisions of our 1987 Constitution do not make for an attractive venue. Neither do our labyrinthine bureaucratic procedures. And while we have a good, young and English-speaking labor force, the same is being wooed away from the domestic economy by overseas employment opportunities. The US-China trade war should attract transfers of capital and technology from China to our country, but as stated earlier, we are in competition with other Asean countries, where every effort is being made to attract foreign investment. In Vietnam for instance, which is authoritarian in politics but very open in economics, the levels of FDI’s for the past decade have been astounding. Getting our act together is imperative. And expectations about the Year of the Earth Pig should be tempered with the realities of the world economy, even as we reform, as we must, the strictures that bind our country to sluggish growth in foreign capital and technological catching-up. We must guard against a return of the boom-and-bust cycle that has plagued our efforts at economic development while our neighbors have long sustained their crest.

terests. Need we say more? If they are not popular, the leading candidates for the Senate are the ones with the money. Money speaks louder than words and the wealthy bets are expected to turn up the volume at the homestretch of the political campaign. If I did believe that freedom of the press is being violated in Ressa’s case, then I would be the first to declare support for her. But I do not. Whether libel was committed is for the courts to decide. Let us look at all this objectively. www.emiljurado.weebly.com

Batang Pinoy to start Sunday THREE THOUSAND athletes from 67 local government units all over the Visayas region are expected to participate in the Philippine Sports Commission’s Batang Pinoy qualifying leg which opens in Iloilo City on Sunday. “The city and province of Iloilo have been wanting to host the Batang Pinoy and we are glad it’s finally happening here,” said Iloilo City Youth and Sports Development Office Head Moises Salomon Jr. National Secretariat Deputy Head Paul Ycasas added that, “final preparations are currently being done to assist not just the athletes, but also the 572 coaches and 135 delegation officials attending the games.” Like its Mindanao leg in Tagum, Davao del Norte last February 2 to 9, the PSC’s grassroots sporting event for in-school and out-of-school children for 15 years under will feature 20 sporting events, in 15 different playing venues. Ycasas identified La Paz Elementary School, Graciano Elementary School, Pison Elementary School, Montes Elementary School, Jaro Elementary School and Jalandoni Memorial National High School as the six billeting areas for athletes throughout the games. Last November 2017, Cebu City claimed the Batang Pinoy Visayas leg overall title with 46 gold medals, 59 silver medals and 69 bronze medals, with host Dumaguete City on second spot with 41 gold, 29 silver and 44 bronze.

Blue Eaglets promise to rebound ATENEO Blue Eaglets coach Reggie Varilla admitted that they have been outworked by the Nazareth SchoolNational University Bullpups in Game 1 of the 81st University Athletic Association of the Philippines Junior Basketball Tournament. Varilla however said the team has learned from their loss and vowed to get the last two wins of the season. T he Bullpups, accordi ng to Va r illa, did a g reat job with their rebounding and second chance baskets. Their efforts in the shaded lanes allowed the Bullpups to pull off a 70-58 win over the Blue Eaglets and move a win closer to their seventh title. “You can see this at the number of times they got the rebound, and the 50-50 balls. We played good defense. But we were not able to close it out with our defensive rebounds,” said Varilla. He noted how Bulldogs big men Carl Tamayo and Kevin Quiambao took charge with Tamayo finishing with a 15-point, 12-rebound double-double while Tamayo tallied 14 points and 13 rebounds. “They hit some big shots, and suddenly we were down by nine,” added Varilla. Their team effort down the stretch, forced 7-foot-1 Blue Eaglet Kai Sotto to five turnovers and frustrated Forthsky Padrigao, who only had four points, for 2-of-12 shooting accuracy and eight errors. Geo Chiu supported Sotto with double-double effort of 12 points and 11 rebounds. On the other hand, Padrigao had eight assists, six boards, and three steals. Peter Atencio

SEA Games facilities at Clark near completion By Peter Atencio

C

LARK Field, Pampanga—Sports facilities that are being constructed inside the New Clark City in Capas, Tarlac are more than halfway done.

The facilities, which showcase Filipino culture and lifestyle, will be used for the coming 30th Southeast Asian Games and are expected to be finished by August. The sports complex at the New Clark City will serve as the main hub of the Games, which will cater to 22 of the 56 sports disciplines which have been calendared. Officials of infrastructure developer, MTD Philippines, which is the project partner of the Bases Conversion Development Authority, said the project will be done some three months of before start of the biennial meet, which will take place from Nov. 30 to Dec. 11.

“We are in here for the long haul (on these projects). May athletics stadium, at may aquatics center. Matatapos po ito ng June, at the latest ay July,” said New Clark City project director, admiral Jose Miguel Rodriguez during yesterday’s weekly Philippine Sportswriters Association Forum that was held at the Mimosa Golf and Country Club. The venues are part of a P13.6-billion project, known as Phase 1A of the New Clark City (NCC). Other facilities that are being readied for the games are in the Philippine Arena in Bocaue, Bulacan The athletes’ village will have 2,100

beds, and will be home to athletes, officials, and volunteers for the duration of the Games. There are plans to have them operational by Nov. 20. The aquatics center will have an eightlane training pool, a 10-lane competition pool and a maximum depth of five meters. On the other hand, the track stadium will have a 400-meter standard track and nine lanes. Philippine Southeast Asian Games Organizing Committee deputy director Arrey Perez said the structures built will be the first major sports facilities to rise in the country since the Rizal Memorial Sports Complex was put up in 1934. The designers take pride in the design of the oval, which draws inspiration from the “caldera,” or the crater of Mt. Pinatubo and the contour of the surrounding terrain of Zambales and the Sierra Madre ranges.

Fajardo, Slaughter lead All-Star lineup By Jeric Lopez IT will be speed against size in the coming Philippine Basketball Association All-Star Game 2019. The starters for the annual All-Star meet to be held on Mar. 31 in Calasiao, Pangasinan were named yesterday. Giants June Mar Fajardo of San Miguel Beer and Greg Slaughter of Barangay Ginebra will lead the South’s charge along with rejuvenated James Yap of Rain or Shine, Scottie Thomson, also from Ginebra, and Mark Barroca of Magnolia. Over at the other end, spitfires will spearhead the way for North with the Hotshots’ Paul Lee and the Gin Kings’ LA Tenorio. They will be joined by Ginebra’s Japeth Aguilar, San Miguel’s Marcio Lassiter and Phoenix’s Calvin Abueva. With Fajardo and Slaughter once again at the helm for a twin-tower combination, South will definitely have a significant size advantage. However, quickness and athleticism will most certainly be on the North’s side with speedsters Lassiter, Aguilar and Abueva.

San Miguel Beer giant June Mar Fajardo (15), here grabbing the rebound, will lead the South team during the PBA All-Star game in Pangasinan. PBA Media

Prior to the game, the other All-Star festivities will be held beforehand. This year’s All-Star has reverted back to its old format of holding the games in just a single venue. The festivities are

scheduled from March 29-31. For the last two seasons, the league had brought the All-Star weekend nationwide, hopping from Luzon, Visayas to Mindanao.

Saso settles for joint lead at PH Ladies Amateur Open YUKA Saso sizzled in the early going but cooled down at the back with shaky putting, settling for a one-under 70 and a share of the lead with Thai Khawnuna Yosita and Mafy Singson at the start of the Champion Philippine Ladies Amateur Open at the Manila Golf and Country Club in Forbes Park yesterday. They stood four strokes up on Chanettee Wannasaen, also of Thailand, who shot a 74, while Sofia Chabon and Rianne Malixi turned in identical 75s in windy conditions at the par-71 layout returning as host of the country’s premier championship after a long absence. Manila Golf Club president Martin Romualdez, Peerless Products Manufacturing Corp. president Simeon Tiu and MGC ladies chapter head Lorna Tabuena hit the ceremonial drives to formally kick off the 54-hole championship presented by Champion late Monday. Other backers of the event are EVA Air, San Miguel Corp., Elmer Ngo, Inquirer, Pascual Laboratories, the National Golf Association of the Philippines and the ladies chapters of Alabang, Forest hills, Tagaytay Highlands, Sta.

Junia Gabasa, coming off a victory in the W Express RVF Cup in Canlubang last week, struggled with a 76 for joint seventh with Eagle Ace Superal and Taiwanese Sung You-Chuan while Nicole Abelar lay a stroke farther back with 77 in the 54-hole championship organized and conducted by the Women’s Golf Association of the Philippines. Just when she thought she had the posh layout all figured out after going three-under with a birdie on No. 1 and an eagle on No. 4, Saso hit an errant approach shot on No. 8 for bogey then groped for her touch on the unpredictable greens at the back, flubbing five birdie chances inside eight feet. The reigning Asian Games gold medalist three-putted No. 14 after misreading a downhill try, the ball storming past the cup by six feet which she failed to return.

Duterte signs law to build ‘state-of-the-art’ training center By Nat Mariano IN A bid to help the country’s athletes achieve excellence and ensure success in international sports competition, President Rodrigo Duterte has signed a law green lighting the establishment of a P3.5 billion “state-of-the-art” national sports training facility. Republic Act No. 11214, also known as the “Philippine Sports Training Center Act,” seeks to “promote and develop sports in the country” with the establishment of multi-billion-peso sports complex, which would be called as the Philippine Sports Training Center (PSTC). The new legislation seeks to “achieve excellence in international sports competition, ensure success in the country’s quest to achieve competitiveness in the Olympic Games, promote international amity among nations.”

“The State shall promote physical education and encourage sports program, league competitions, and amateur sports, including training for international competitions to foster self-discipline, teamwork, and excellence for the development of a healthy and alert citizenry,” the law stated. “To further this policy, the State shall establish and construct a state-of-theart and highly scientific sports complex,” it added. According to the law, there shall be a six-month planning upon its effectivity. The necessary sports facilities and amenities, which the government hopes would be “at par” with international standards, shall then be constructed within a period of 18 months in a location suitable and conducive to high-level training of athletes, coaches, and referees. The PSTC shall also serve as the “official

home and primary venue for the development of athletes in the National Team,” providing them access to scientific principles and programs, training techniques, and modern equipment and facilities. Staying true to its “state-of-the-art” branding, the soon-to-be-constructed sports complex aims to provide over 26 training facilities such as athletes’ and coaches’ dormitory, baseball field, covered swimming and diving pool, football field, multipurpose gymnasium, track and field oval, tennis courts, library, weight training building, school buildings, worship and meditation room, and a medical center, among others. It shall also include sports facilities and amenities for 39 Olympic sports and other non-Olympic sports such as aquatics, archery, ranks, athletics, badminton, baseball, basketball, billiard and snookers, BMX and Cycling, bowling, boxing,

chess, dance sport, fencing, gymnastics, judo, karatedo, Muay Thai, softball, table tennis, taekwondo, weighlighting, wrestling, and wushu, among others. The said law also mandates the Philippine Sports Commission, through the Philippine Sports Institute, to ensure that the PSTC shall meet its objectives. “The PSC is vested with the authority to administer, manage, operate, and maintain the PSTC including the administration of incidental income, security of the complex, assignment of personnel and hiring of managers, specialists, and other administrative staff as may be needed,” it said. “The PSC shall (also) employ professional and highly skilled managers with long and vast experience in sports administration and management to ensure the proper maintenance and upkeep of the PSTC and its facilities and other amenities.”

POPI changes name to Ayalaland Logistics AYALA Land Inc. is changing the corporate name of its majority-owned subsidiary Prime Orion Philippines Inc. to Ayalaland Logistics Holdings Corp. POPI said in a disclosure to the stock exchange the change aimed to “align with the company’s vision to be the leading real estate logistics and industrial estate developer and operator in the Philippines.” The proposed change in the company’s name will be subject to shareholders’ approval and taken up during the annual stockholders’ meeting on April 12. Ayalaland Logistics’s stock symbol in the Philippine Stock Exchange will also be changed to “ALL.” Ayala Land in January acquired Mitsubishi Corp.’s 20-percent stake in Laguna Technopark Inc. for P800 million. Ayala Land said it would swap the 20-percent equity interest in LTI for additional shares of stock in POPI, equivalent to 323,886,640 common shares. Jenniffer B. Austria

Car sales continued slump with a 15% drop in January By Othel V. Campos

EHICLE sales opened 2019 with a 15-percent drop in January, following the 16-percent slump in 2018, data from the Chamber of Automotive Manufacturers of the Philippines Inc. and the Truck Manufacturers Association Inc. show.

The two industry groups said their members sold 26,888 vehicles in January, down by 15 percent from 31,645 units delivered in the same month in 2018. Combined sales of Campi and TMA members fell 16 percent last year to 357,410 vehicles from 425,673 units in 2017. Including the sales of the Association of Vehicle Importers and Distributors, total industry sales went down 15.2 percent to 401,803 units in 2018 from a record 473,943 units in 2017, following

NLEx Harbor Link set to open soon By Darwin G. Amojelar THE NLEx Harbor Link Segment 10, a traffic game changer that will drastically cut travel time from Port Area to North Luzon Expressway, is set to open to motorists in a few days, the Public Works Department said Tuesday. Public Works Secretary Mark Villar said once NLEx Harbor Link was opened, “around 30,000 vehicles daily will be diverted away from busy roads in Metro Manila.” “The NLEx Harbor Link Segment 10 will be a traffic game changer since this will drastically cut travel time from Port Area to NLEx,” the agency said. Villar, together with Metro Pacific Tollways Corp. president Rodrigo Franco and NLEX Corp. president Luigi Bautista, will conduct a dry-run on Wednesday for the opening of the NLEx Harbor Link Segment 10 from Karuhatan, Valenzuela City to the new Caloocan Interchange on C3 Road, Caloocan City. NLEx Harbor Link Segment 10 is composed of the 5.65-km elevated expressway traversing North Luzon Expressway from MacArthur Highway in Karuhatan, Valenzuela City, passing through Malabon City and C3 Road, Caloocan City and the 2.6-km section

between C3 Road, Caloocan City and R10, Navotas City. The elevated expressway will reduce the travel time from NLEx Valenzuela City to R10 from 23 minutes to just 11 minutes via Balintawak-Edsa Monumento and from 26 minutes to just 13 minutes via Balintawak to A. Bonifacio/C3 Road. Villar said that with the reduced travel time, motorists would gain significant savings in vehicle operating costs and increase their productivity as they would not need to go through heavy traffic. Set for opening in a few days, the new segment is envisioned to alleviate traffic congestion in Metro Manila as it will serve as an alternate corridor for motorists traveling from Central and North Luzon provinces, Valenzuela City and Quezon City to Manila. “In a recent Jica [Japan International Cooperation Study] study, traffic congestion in Metro Manila is costing the country P3.5 billion a day. This new road will be a big boost to our economy as billions of pesos will be saved annually with the improved travel time,” Villar said. With the direct and quick access between NLEx and Manila Port, NLEx Harbor Link Segment 10 is being eyed to provide direct access for commercial vehicles, especially heavy trucks.

PH, US to hold bilateral talks on free trade BUSINESSMAN and US-Philippines Society co-chairman Manuel Pangilinan said Tuesday the Philippines should seriously prepare for the bilateral talks with the US on the proposed free trade agreement. Pangilinan said the Philippines was among the four countries and blocs that the US offered a free trade deal. “It is something that we should take seriously. The US is one of the biggest markets available to us,” Pangilinan said during the annual and US-Philippines Society business mission to the Philippines. Aside from the Philippines, the US was hoping to forge FTAs with the United Kingdom, Japan and the European Union. Pangilinan said while the US might impose preferential treatment for certain food and commodities from the Philippines, the whole agreement would most likely revolve around the US Generalized System of Preferences.

US President Donald Trump approved in March 2018 the Philippines’ request for another round of the US-GSP for the next three years or until 2020. The GSP program covers 5,057 products or tariff lines, representing 47.7 percent of the total 10,600 US tariff lines. About 3,500 of these tariff lines are open for all beneficiary developing countries while an additional 1,500 products are given to the least-developed beneficiary developing countries. Former US Ambassador to the Philippines and US-Philippines Society co-chairman John Negroponte said both countries could mutually benefit from the FTA if they agreed “to maximize each other’s access to each other’s economy.” “Both should be able to free up the interaction between each other’s economy. If they want inputs from the private sector, we’re happy to give them,” he said. Othel V. Campos

A MAKATI City court nullified Circular Letter No. 2017-04 issued by Credit Information Corp. that required insurers to submit the premium payments, insurance contracts and policy loans of clients. The Makati Regional Trial Court Branch 56 in a decision Jan. 4, 2019 said premium payments, insurance contracts and policy loans were not within the ambit of basic credit data required to be submitted under Republic Act No. 9510, or the Credit Information System Act. The court said the requirements did not pertain to a borrower’s performance on a loan, credit line, guarantee or any other form of financial accommodation. The court negated the allegation of CIC that the law expressed the inclusion of any data reflective of a borrower’s credit worthiness and other factual and objective information related to the submission of data files or other sources of information.

Market retreats; Megaworld rises T HE stock market fell Tuesday on profit taking, with investors trading cautiously amid resurgent oil prices, and monitoring the current USChina trade talks.

The Philippine Stock Exchange Index dropped 76.83 points, or 1 percent, to 7,833.75 on a value turnover of P8.1 billion. Losers beat gainers, 132 to 84, with 39 issues unchanged. Major property developer Ayala Land Inc. declined 3.7 percent to P43, while Vista Land & Lifescapes Inc. of the Villar Group lost 6.2 percent to P7.50. Universal Robina Corp., the biggest snack food maker, fell 3.1 percent to P140.50, but Megaworld Corp., the largest lessor of office spaces, climbed

5.3 percent to P5.39. The rest of Asian markets were mixed Tuesday with investors cautiously optimistic that China and the US can reach a deal ending their trade war as the two sides prepare to resume talks this week. With New York closed for a public holiday there were few catalysts to drive buying, though the release of Federal Reserve minutes on Wednesday will be pored over for an idea of the bank’s interest rate plans. Top-level officials from the world’s two biggest economies will reconvene in Washington after a series of talks in Beijing last week, with the US side telling President Donald Trump they had been “very productive.” The positive tone from the diplomats, and the president’s indication he could extend a deadline for agreement, boosted regional markets Monday, extending a

2019 rally fueled by optimism about an end to the nearly year-long tariffs spat. Tokyo finished 0.1 percent higher, Hong Kong dipped 0.3 percent in the afternoon and Shanghai closed fractionally up. Sydney gained 0.3 percent, Singapore put on 0.2 percent and Taipei 0.2 percent, with Seoul and Wellington each off 0.2 percent. Mumbai and Jakarta were up. However, OANDA senior market analyst Jeffrey Halley warned of trouble ahead if Chinese and US officials do not agree a deal. “The rallies (Monday) were impressive given the talks ended last week without any concrete results and have yet to even recommence in Washington this week due to the US public holiday,” he said. “Without sounding like a damp squib, there is now a vast amount of ‘optimism’ baked into currency, stock and energy

market prices globally and precisely zero concrete detail. The unwind, should no deal be struck, could be very ugly.” Oil prices were mixed after rallying Monday on trade talks hope and signs that Opec and other key producers are narrowing output. “Saudi Arabia seems willing to do whatever is necessary to reach levels of $80 a barrel, and judging by the price reaction, they’re on track,” said Eugen Weinberg, head of commodities research at Commerzbank AG. “Even rather bearish factors, like a stronger-than-expected rise in US oil production, does not seem to derail the price recovery.” On currency markets the pound was down, with uncertainty fanned by news that seven pro-remain MPs had split from Britain’s opposition Labour Party over its handling of Brexit and a row over antisemitism.

STI upbeat, buys maritime engineering institution By Jenniffer B. Austria STI Education Services Group Inc. , a unit of STI Holdings Inc., has acquired NAMEI Polytechnic Institute, an educational institution that offers courses in maritime transportation and marine engineering and naval architecture. STI Holdings said in a disclosure to the stock exchange it would house NAMEI in the newly constructed STI Academic Center Sta. Mesa along P. Sanchez Street, Sta. Mesa in Metro Manila. The 10-story building, with an estimated value of P727 million, stands on a 3,691-square-meter property and can accommodate 9,000 senior high school and college students. The new campus will be operational this school year 2019-2020 and is equipped with state-of-the-art facilities. “We are very happy with the addition of NAMEI to STI ESG’s institutional roster,” said STI ESG president and chief operating officer Peter Fernandez. “It is an opportunity for us to introduce exciting changes and transform NAMEI into an educational powerhouse whose students will bring pride not only to their alma mater but also to the country,” he added. The group said the acquisition was a strategic move to boost the institution’s sought-after courses. The school provides practical and industry-driven skills that will produce more worldclass professionals in several fields, especially maritime. STI ESG, citing data from the Philippine Statistics Authority and the International Maritime Organization, noted that the Philippines was the world’s biggest source of seafarers, with Filipinos accounting for about 380,000 of the 1.5 million seafarers worldwide. STI ESG said figures from the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas showed that the maritime industry was also a major contributor to the country’s economy. Filipino seafarers remitted $1.934 billion from January to April in 2018. “A good number of Philippine maritime education and training institutes continue to hone the skills development of our seafarers. It is high time we complemented this with high quality education to prepare a new generation of seafarers who are ready to join global cruise companies,” Fernandez said.

Metro Retail, Samar form joint venture CEBU-BASED retailer Metro Retail Stores Group Inc. formed a joint venture with the local government of Samar province for the development of a P472.9 million mixed-use commercial project in Catbalogan City. MRSGI said in a disclosure to the stock exchange the joint venture partnership included the construction of a department store with one movie theater and leasable spaces, a convention center, a government center with business process outsourcing hub, a transport terminal and a hotel on a 22,000 square-meter lot owned the provincial government of Samar. The project will be implemented in two phases under a partnership agreement covering 30 years. MRSGI said a transport terminal and a government center with BPO and convention hub are scheduled for completion within the next six to eight months, while the department store, supermarket and hotel were slated to be finished in the next 18 to 24 months. “The joint venture will generate additional revenues to MRSGI and increase the existing gross floor area footprint of its stores,” the company said. It said both parties agreed to share in the monthly gross revenues and gross rent from the operation of the department store and supermarket movie theater, and leasable spaces. All revenues to be be generated from the operation of the convention center, government center with BPO center and transport terminal will belong to the province. The possession and ownership of the convention center, government center with BPO center and transport terminal will be turned over to Samar after the completion of the construction phase. MRSGI will obtain a 20-percent share from the hotel operator’s lease rental payments, while the province will get 80 percent. MRSGI will turn over to the Samar province the possession and ownership of the department store, supermarket and movie theater with leasable spaces upon expiration of the 30-year implementation period.

States sue Trump over emergency Manila

Standard

S

Trump announced the emergency Friday in order to bypass Congress, which approved only a quarter of the $5.6 billion he wanted for the wall in a spending bill. But the lawsuit, filed in a federal court in California, said the president’s order was contrary to the constitution’s presentment and appropriations clauses, which outline legislative procedures and define Congress as the final arbiter of public funds, respectively. The move had already been announced by Xavier Becerra, the attorney general of California, who said Sunday his state and others had legal standing because they risked losing moneys intended for military projects, disaster assistance and other purposes. Critics, including several senators from Trump’s Republican party, have warned that he has opened the door for future presidents to call on the act whenever they fail to get their way with Congress. Should the states prevail, the case could work its way up to the Supreme Court, setting up a precedent-setting showdown on the separation of powers.

California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Oregon and Virginia are party to the complaint seeking an injunction. The states “bring this action to protect their residents, natural resources, and economic interests from President Donald J. Trump’s flagrant disregard of fundamental separation of powers principles engrained in the United States Constitution,” the complaint said. It added that Trump had veered the country toward a “constitutional crisis of his own making.” “Congress has repeatedly rebuffed the president’s insistence to fund a border wall, recently resulting in a record 35-day partial government shutdown over the border wall dispute,” it said. “After the government reopened, Congress approved, and the president signed into law, a $1.375 billion appropriation for fencing along the southern border, but Congress made clear that funding could not be used to build President Trump’s proposed border wall.” AFP

Cuban cigars hit record sales HAVANA―Boosted by growing demand from China, sales of Cuban cigars reached a record $537 million in 2018, a seven percent increase over the previous year despite global laws against tobacco, the partially state-owned Habanos said Monday. “China has surpassed France as the second biggest market for Habanos” behind Spain, said the cigar company’s vice president Jose Maria Lopez Inchaurbe. Sales in China grew by 55 percent with east Asia as a whole up nine percent, said Lopez. Marketing manager Ernesto Gonzalez said the figures showed “the strength of our sales despite the difficulties faced during the year.” The French market was hit by a 17 percent increase in taxes on tobacco products, which meant Habanos had to push up its prices by eight to 10 percent, said Lopez. Gonzalez said the impressive figures came despite the global luxury tobacco market growing by just one percent in 2018. Unlike in Europe, sales in China have not been affected by toughening anti-tobacco laws. AFP

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING TO ALL INTERESTED PARTIES:

DR BSS

Notice is hereby given that on 19 December 2018, the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP) and SPC Island Power Corporation (SIPC) filed an Application dated 13 December 2018, seeking the approval of their Ancillary Services Procurement Agreement (ASPA), with prayer for the issuance of provisional authority.

16. Consistent with the AS-CRM, all the related and incidental expenses which NGCP will incur as a result of the procurement and operation of the ancillary services shall be recovered from all the load customers in the Visayas. 17. The ASPA shall be effective for a period of five (5) years, to commence immediately upon the effectivity of the provisional approval, or in the absence thereof, the final approval of the instant Application. In the event that the provisional or final approval, as the case may be, does not state a particular date of effectivity, the Agreement shall be effective on the date agreed upon by the Parties.

NATURE OF THE CASE This Application is for the approval of the Ancillary Services Procurement Agreement ("ASPA") between the NGCP and SIPC dated 20 November 2018, pursuant to the Decision dated 3 October 2007 in ERC Case No. 2006-049RC entitled: "In the Matter of the Application for the Approval of Ancillary Services - Cost Recovery Mechanism (AS-CRM) of the Ancillary Services Procurement Plan, with Prayer for Provisional Authority."

18. SIPC, as a generation company, falls within the ambit of Sections 6 of the EPIRA. Attached are copies of relevant documents proving SIPC's due registration as a generation company, relevant permits to operate the Generation Facility and audited financial statements, as follows:

THE PARTIES 2.

Applicant NGCP is a corporation created and existing under the laws of the Philippines, with office address at NGCP Building, Quezon Avenue corner BIR Road, Diliman, Quezon City. It holds a franchise under Republic Act No. 95111 to engage in the business of conveying or transmitting electricity through highvoltage back-bone systems of interconnected transmission lines, substations and related facilities, and for other purposes. The franchise also includes the conduct of activities necessary to support the safe and reliable operation of the transmission system.

3.

ALLEGATIONS IN SUPPORT OF THE PRAYER FOR PROVISIONAL AUTHORITY 19. It is a declared policy of the State to ensure the quality, reliability, security and affordability of the supply of electric power (Section 2(b), EPIRA). To this end, there is a need to comply with the system requirements for AS to ensure grid system security and reliability. As mentioned above, NGCP has the mandate to procure the required AS.

Republic Act No. 9136 ("EPIRA") provides that it is the responsibility of NGCP to ensure and maintain the reliability, adequacy, security, stability and integrity of the nationwide electrical grid in accordance with the performance standards for its operations and maintenance, as set forth in the Philippine Grid Code ("PGC")2, adopted and promulgated by the Honorable Commission, and to adequately serve generation companies, distribution utilities and suppliers requiring transmission service and/or ancillary services through the transmission system.3

5.

Similarly, the PGC provides that NGCP is responsible for determining, acquiring, and dispatching the capacity needed to supply the required Grid AS and for developing and proposing Wheeling Charges and AS tariffs to the ERC.4

6.

AS as defined in Section 4(b) of the EPIRA "refer to those services that are necessary to support the transmission of capacity and energy from resources to loads while maintaining reliable operation of the transmission system in accordance with good utility practice and the Grid Code to be adopted in accordance with this Act." These services are essential in ensuring reliability in the operation of the transmission system and consequently, in the reliability of the electricity supply in the Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao grids.

7.

In order to implement and regulate the procurement of AS, the Honorable Commission approved the Ancillary Services Procurement Plan ("ASPP") through its Order dated 9 March 2006 in ERC Case No. 2002-253 and the Ancillary Services-Cost Recovery Mechanism ("AS-CRM") through its Decision dated 3 October 2007 in ERC Case No. 2006-049RC.

8.

Pursuant to its mandate, NGCP on different dates published in newspapers of general circulation a Notice of Invitation for Prospective Ancillary Services Providers, inviting all grid-connected merchant plants and independent power producers to participate in the provision of ancillary services.

9.

On 4 September 2013, the Applicants filed an application for the approval of its ASPA dated 18 April 2013 docketed as ERC Case No. 2013-181RC. Through the Order dated 11 November 2013, the Honorable Commission provisionally approved the application, viz:. "The Commission believes that the contracted Ancillary Services capacity is needed to augment the deficiency in the Ancillary Services reserve capacity. This will ensure reliability in the operation of the transmission system and the electricity supply in the Visayas Grid. An initial evaluation of the instant application discloses that the ASPA entered into by and between NGCP and SIPC will redound to the benefit of the consumers in terms of continuous, reliable, efficient and affordable power supply as mandated by the EPIRA [Section 2. Declaration of Policy - (b) "to ensure the quality, reliability, security and affordability of the supply of electric power]. WHEREFORE, the foregoing premises considered, the Commission hereby PROVISIONALLY APPROVES the application filed by the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP) and SPC Island Power Corporation (SIPC) for the approval of their Ancillary Services Procurement Agreement (ASPA), subject to the following conditions: xxx”

10. Due to the necessity of extending the services of providing the same ancillary services, the Applicants again entered into a new ASPA under the same rates, terms and conditions. NGCP agreed to procure and SIPC agreed to supply AS in the forms of: (a) DR under a firm arrangement; and (b) BSS under a non-firm arrangement. A copy of the Ancillary Services Procurement Agreement between NGCP and SIPC dated 20 November 2018 is attached in the Application. 11. During the period of negotiation, NGCP conducted several tests on the Generation Facility, and certified that the generating units have met and complied with the Standard Ancillary Services Technical Requirements of the ASPP as capable of providing: (i) DR (Unit 1 = 4.0MW, Unit 2 = 4.0MW, Unit 3 = 4.2MW and Unit 4 = 4.0MW) and (ii) BSS (16.2 MW with 200kW EDG). A copy of NGCP Accreditation Certificate No. 2018-V0007 dated 20 August 2018 is attached in the Application. FIRM AND NON-FIRM CONTRACTED CAPACITY RATE AND IMPACT SIMULATION 12. Under Clause 3 of the ASPA, SIPC shall provide NGCP with the following AS as specified in Schedule 1 of the ASPA, follows: A.

NATIONAL GRID CORPORATION OF THE PHILIPPINES AND SPC ISLAND POWER CORPORATION, Applicants. X------------------------------------------------------X

Rodent first climate change victim SYDNEY―Australia officially declared a Great Barrier Reef rodent extinct on Tuesday, making it the first mammal believed to have been killed off by human-induced climate change. The rat-like Bramble Cay melomys―whose only known habitat was a small sandy island in far northern Australia―has not been spotted in a decade. Researchers from Queensland determined a key factor in its disappearance was “almost certainly” repeated ocean inundation of the cay -- a low-lying island on a coral reef -- over the last decade, which had resulted in dramatic habitat loss. Australia’s environment ministry on Tuesday said it had officially transferred the animal to the “extinct” list. The declaration was expected. The researchers completed a wideranging survey in 2014 in a bid to track down the species, but found no trace.

AN FRANCISCO-Sixteen US states sued President Donald Trump’s administration Monday over his decision to declare a national emergency to fund a wall on the southern border with Mexico, saying the move violated the constitution.

PARIS―A new map of the night sky published Tuesday charts hundreds of thousands of previously unknown galaxies discovered using a telescope that can detect light sources optical instruments cannot see. The international team behind the unprecedented space survey said their discovery literally shed new light on some of the Universe’s deepest secrets, including the physics of black holes and how clusters of galaxies evolve. “This is a new window on the universe,” Cyril Tasse, an astronomer at the Paris Observatory who was involved in the project, told AFP. “When we saw the first images we were like: ‘What is this?!’ It didn’t look anything at all like what we are used to seeing.” More than 200 astronomers from 18 countries were involved

20. As mentioned above, the Honorable Commission has already declared that there is a necessity for NGCP to procure the contracted ancillary services capacity of SIPC to maintain the reliability of the operation of the transmission system and electricity supply in the Visayas Grid. 21. SIPC must continue to provide the current contracted ancillary services beyond the 2013 ASPA to maintain the reliability of the power grid. Based on the current levels of available contracted AS in the Visayas Grid, the firm contracted AS have not yet met the required levels of the ASPP. The copies of the relevant actual data and its corresponding graphical presentations showing the required and available levels of AS in the Visayas Grid, entitled: Visayas Dispatchable Reserve Availability is attached in the Application. 22. NGCP must be guaranteed that there are available AS on a daily basis to assure reliability of the grid. There is no assurance that the non-firm capacities would be available when needed. NGCP cannot gamble on this chance. As the grid operator, the contracted capacity of SIPC, especially its firm capacities, are greatly needed. 23. Thus, NGCP and SIPC agreed to execute another ASPA for a period of another five years. With this ASPA, the Visayas Grid is assured of AS until 2023. 24. Also, as the demand for power in the Visayas increases, the requirements of the system to ensure stability, reliability and security likewise increases. Ensuring the integrity of the system is essential to protect the interests of the public. The absence of system reliability and stability will certainly discourage investments and growth. 25. Applicants respectfully submit that the immediate approval of the ASPA by this Honorable Commission is a necessity to maintain the reliability, adequacy, security, stability and integrity of the Visayas Grid. In support of these allegations, NGCP submits a copy of the Judicial Affidavit of Engr. Lisaflor Bacani-Kater of the Revenue and Regulatory Affairs Department of NGCP, which is attached in the Application.

A model for rainwater harvesting TAYSAN, Batangas—Water is a precious and limited resource and needs to be managed well. With this in mind, the Republic Cement Batangas Plant continues to do rainwater harvesting and has done so since 2015 for 100% of its domestic and industrial water consumption requirements or about 328,150 cu.m. of water per year. The Batangas Plant has eliminated its groundwater demand, leaving the scarce groundwater resources for its neighboring communities and farmers. Rainwater harvesting is the collection and storage of rainwater in natural resources or artificially designed resources to prevent runoff and avoid scarcity of water, especially during the dry months. The Batangas Plant has three major collection ponds that collect rainwater, namely RepubLake, the Pozzolan Pond, and the East Shale Pond, which is the largest among the three. The severe drought due to El Niño in

2014, which almost shut down the cement plant, was the driving force for this initiative, while at the same time creating cost savings due to reduced water bills from the local water utilities. Additionally, instead of just being backfilled at the end of quarry life, the reservoirs can now be part of the final mine rehabilitation plan and stakeholders may benefit from these new water sources during summer months. This is a very good example of how Republic Cement operates to assure its customers of consistent supply of good quality products, while taking good care of the environment in the process. The Mine Rehabilitation and Fund Committee of the Mines and Geosciences Bureau under the Department of Environment and Natural Resources and the local government of Taysan have recognized the Batangas Plant’s water conservation efforts through rainwater collection.

Pictured is ‘RepubLake,’ one of the three major rainwater collection ponds in the Republic Cement Plant in Taysan, Batangas.

The ordinance aims to address the increasing student population of the North Fairview High School Annex. West Fairview High School began to operate last June 2017 with 1,792 enrollees for school year 2018- 2019 catering to grades 7 to 10. West Fairview High School is to be integrated from Grades 7 to 12.

Robert Corpuz, Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction Management officer, said the project, constructed on a 3,000-square-meter vacant lot at the back of the People’s Hall building, was already inspected and evaluated by DPWH personnel. “They already declared the project as completed and we will wait for the formal turn-over,” he said. Governor Carlos Padilla, in a recent

meeting of the Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction Management Council, said the provincial government is set to inspect the national government-funded project. “We will not certify it if we are not yet done with its review and inspection based on its program of works,” he said. Padilla also said there is also a need to come up with a Memorandum of Agreement with the Nueva Vizcaya Electric Cooperative (Nuvelco) regarding its power requirements. The eight-room, two-story building will offer a ground floor, two toilets, 67-bed capacity infirmary, pharmacy, laundry, water tank, drying area, cooking area, storage area, assembly and parking area.

CALOOCAN City Mayor Oscar Malapitan recently inspected the ongoing construction of the People’s Park, which is expected to be completed and inaugurated next month. The mayor said the new urban community park in the city will be open to the public after its inauguration. “It’s a beautiful gift for the Caloocan residents as we celebrate our 57th Cityhood Anniversary,” Malapitan added. With a total land area of 6,229.99 square meters located at the back of the New Caloocan City Hall, the People’s Park is one of Malapitan’s big projects. Families and friends who will visit the park can relax and experience a fun time as number of play equipments can be found inside the new park. As part of the city’s 57th Cityhood Anniversary, the City Government recognized the outstanding performances and contributions of Caloocan residents to the community during the annual Outstanding Citizens Awards (OCA) Night.

Malapitan awarded trophies and cash gifts worth P10,000 each to nine centenarians in the city. According to Office for Senior Citizens Affairs head Prof. Marilyn De Jesus, the centenarians will also receive P100,000 each from the Department of Social Welfare and Development. Ten outstanding employees of the city government also received trophies and cash incentive worth P20,000 each. The mayor announced that job order employees among the awardees will be promoted to regular status while those regular employee awardees will be promoted to one rank higher. Aside from centenarians and outstanding employees, Malapitan also gave trophies to outstanding barangays, outstanding citizens and organizations for education, public order and safety, infrastructure, health, education, livelihood, sports, and culture and arts. “Thank you for your exemplary performances in your duties and contributions to make Caloocan a progressive city. I am hoping that you will serve as good example to others,” he said.

of Mabalacat

By Romeo Dizon MABALACAT, Pampanga―Crisostomo C. Garbo has been declared as the duly elected mayor of this 3rd class city—three months before the midterm elections. This after the Supreme Court affirmed the decision of the Commission on Elections dated June 8, 2017, which proclaimed Garbo as the duly elected mayor of the city. In a 21-page resolution penned by Senior Associate Justice Antonio Carpio, the high court dismissed the certiorari filed by thenincumbent Mayor Mariano Morales and Vice Mayor Christian Halili for being without merit. Garbo welcomed the decision “despite attempts by other people to circumvent the law. I am elated by the ruling of the Court as it erased doubts on the legitimacy of my position as city mayor of Mabalacat,” he said. As the victor, Garbo said he will extend his hand of reconciliation to Morales and Halili for the benefit of the city and its people.

A SHE IN EVERY SHEA

TREASURED BUTTER. For centuries, Ghanaian women have been using shea butter for its highly moisturizing properties to protect and intensely nourish their skin from the dry Saharan desert winds.

HEN The Body Shop founder Dame Anita Roddick first visited Ghana in 1992, she met the women who have treasured shea butter for generations. She personally witnessed how they’ve been using shea butter for its highly moisturizing properties to protect and intensely nourish their skin from the dry Saharan desert winds. After her visit, Roddick decided not only to share this ingredient’s benefits, but to also empower women, their families, and entire communities. Thus The Body Shop has paid a premium in addition to paying a fair price for shea butter since they started their partnership in 1994. The partnership has helped Tungteiya Women’s Association’s social fund, the Northern Ghana Community Action Fund, invest in community projects like healthcare, sanitation, water, and education that benefit 49,000 people every year. For the past 25 years, the Tungteiya Women’s Association has grown from 50 members to 540 across 11 villages. Within that period, The Body Shop also co-found the Ghana Shea Alliance, which helps the shea industry strive for a more sustainable world and benefits the 8 million women who are a crucial part of this industry. This year, the beauty brand announces it is sourcing more shea butter for its extended Shea range, which will boost funding for Tungteiya’s vital community projects by 30 percent. Turn to C2

The Body Shop’s extended Shea range includes (clockwise) the multi-purpose shea butter, shea soap, and shea butter hair care trio.

The moisturizing properties and nutty fragrance of shea butter make it an ideal ingredient for body butters, soap, and perfume.

Cyborgs of ‘Alita’ vanquish rivals in box office

Alita, the main character in the movie, is a female cyborg who acts more like a human than a robot.

FOX’S new sci-fi spectacle Alita: Battle Angel is dominating North American box offices with an estimated $33 million take this four-day holiday weekend, industry trackers said Sunday. The film, with Rosa Salazar voicing Alita, a cyborg almost more human than machine, was set to make $27.8 million for the Friday-to-Sunday period and an additional $5.2 million for Monday’s President’s Day holiday, Exhibitor Relations reported. The computer-animated adaptation of a Japanese cyberpunk manga story has big names behind it, directed by Robert Rodriguez and produced by James Cameron. The project, 20 years in the making, also has a sizable budget: $170 million. The Fox film beat out last weekend’s leader, The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part, which earned Warner Bros an estimated $21.2 million in ticket sales for the first three days of the weekend and $27.3 million when Monday is included. This fourth Lego movie again features the voices of Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Banks, and Will Arnett-joined this time by Tiffany Haddish and Maya Rudolph--in a story of love and chaos in a post-apocalyptic toyland. In third was another Warner Bros. film, Isn’t It Romantic?, at $14.2 million for three days and $16.5 million for four. Rebel Wilson stars as a romcom hating New Yorker who, after a blow to the head, finds herself in her own romantic comedy. Liam Hemsworth also stars. Fourth place went to Paramount’s What Men Want. The gender-switching remake of 2000’s What Women Want stars Taraji P. Henson. It had three-day ticket sales of $10.9 million and a four-day total of $12.6 million. And in fifth was Happy Death Day 2U from Universal, at $9.8 million for three days and $11.5 million for four--already recouping the mere $9 million it cost to make. Jessica Rothe again plays the role of a young woman living and reliving the day of her murder. AFP

Josh Groban at MOA on Friday ISAH V. RED

ARE you a fan of Josh Groban? Or are you familiar with his songs? I bet you are. The singer made “The Prayer” popular not only in the US, but around here as well. Martin Nievera has been singing the song many times over in duets with different female singer, most recently Lani Misalucha. Yet, to most popera (pop songs fused with opera-style singing) fans, it is his version along with Celine Dion that has made a lasting impression in their minds. Now, Groban will be in Manila for a show at the Mall of Asia Arena (MOA) on Friday, Feb. 22, at 8 p.m. as part of his tour Josh Groban: Bridges Tour to promote his latest album Bridges. Groban’s name made such a big impact on the global musical arena in early 2000 for the songs “You Raise Me Up,” “The Prayer,” “To Where You Are,” “Vincent,” and “You’re Still You,” among others. Our very own Lea Salonga will make a special appearance as Groban’s guest performer (expect a duet of “The Prayer” and other songs he sang on record with a female singer). The combined efforts of Joed Serrano a.k.a. Mr. P, Renen de Guia, and Cel de Guia of Ovation Productions make Groban’s show in Manila possible. The three are also called as the two Kings and Queen of Concerts, for their reputation of bringing international singers in the country for concerts. They have also produced successful concerts of local singers in the country. Mr. P is known for producing concerts of international and local singers in the Philippines, while Renen and Cel have brought to the country international performers and bands. Among the foreign acts that Mr. P brought to the country for concerts include Korean pop sensation PSY, Katy Perry, The Jonas Brothers, James Ingram, Boyzone, Michael Learns To Rock, among others. On the local scene, he has produced concerts of Vice Ganda, Sharon Cuneta, Regine Velasquez, Ogie Alcasid, Martin Nievera, Ai-Ai delas Alas, Gary Valenciano, and many more. Meanwhile Renen and Cel Ovation Prod. Were the producers of the concerts of Sting, Metallica, One Direction and many more. Ovation Production is celebrating its 40th year in bringing the biggest concerts in the country. The three of them joined forces in bringing in July of last year the highly successful Celine Dion Live in Manila 2018. This time around, Mr. P, Renen and Cel are hoping to make another successful concert in the Philippines with JOSH GROBAN: Bridges Tour. Continued on C3

In the movie, Winwyn plays the role of Apple, a writer and diner waitress who falls for a customer, Ozzi (Enzo Pineda) who already has a girlfriend.

Newly single Winwyn Marquez turns back the hands of time in

‘TIME & AGAIN’ W

INWYN Marquez and boyfriend Mark Herras have broken up after being together for more than three years. It was a revelation that surprised people who went to see the beauty queen at the press conference for her new film, Time and Again.

UN-COUPLE. Winwyn and Mark Herras during their happy

times together.

It was Valentine’s Day that’s why scribes asked her what her plans were. She was smiling and just answered, “I don’t have any plans today. Wala akong plano for Valentine’s this year.” “Why? Have you broken up with Mark Herras?” was the unassertive question of the program host who felt puzzled, too. “How will I answer this? We’re okay, we’re busy and I think we’re doing our own thing. He has his own thing. I have my own thing,” she started. “Yeah, I’m single right now. We have already parted ways. It was a mutual decision,” she continued. She clarified there was no third party involved and that they’re actually still talking. Meanwhile, Winwyn is still in disbelief now that she is a leading-lady material. After co-starring with Vhong Navarro in the 2018 comedy movie Unli Life, the 26-year-old actress is top-billing the post-Valentine movie Time and Again, produced by Regal Entertainment, Inc. Winwyn considers Time and Again as her launching movie because the story revolves around her character, Apple. “I never thought I’d watch myself on the big screen. I never thought that I would be given this kind of opportunity,” she explained. Though she has been active in the business for almost a decade now, it is only now that Winwyn is getting her big breaks. Admittedly, the big part of her ongoing showbiz success is because of winning an international crown. Teresita Ssen "Winwyn" Marquez stars in 'Time & Again,' her first leading role after being in showbiz for more than a decade now.

In 2015, Winwyn became the first-ever Filipina to join the Reina Hispanoamericana beauty pageant, which has been dominated by Latina representatives since it started 27 years ago. Winwyn made history when she took home the crown. “My life started changing after my win. After that, parang one dream to another, na sabay-sabay: movies, and then pageants, and then my advocacy program.” In the movie, Winwyn gets to work with a long-time friend Enzo Pineda. The actress said that she and Enzo go way, way back. When Enzo joined StarStruck, the reality-based artista search on GMA-7, it was also the same time that Winwyn entered showbiz. “I’ve known Enzo for nine years, since I started showbiz. Sabay kaming nag-showbiz,” she explained. As for working with Enzo, Winwyn said that it’s so much easier to act when she’s with someone she’s comfortable with. “It’s such a smooth sailing shooting. I hope the audience would see the chemistry, kasi kami ni Enzo naramdaman namin,” she said. For the director of the film, Joey Reyes, it was a pleasure working with Enzo and Winwyn whom he admires for being intelligent actors. “Like Bea Alonzo and John Lloyd Cruz, they made good movies together. But they are not meddling with each other’s personal lives together, right? I think, it’s the ‘combination’ that brings people to cinemas. Do I believe in love team? Yes, but there are instances that the lead actors don’t need to be in a love team for the film to work. The audience must see them as actors playing roles. And they are two of the most intelligent actors we have today,” Reyes affirmed. Time and Again unspools in cinemas today.
