Groups oppose cutting of trees in Naga City



NAGA CITY 7/26/17 (Bicol Standard)--Two groups have joined forces to oppose the cutting of trees along Magsaysay Avenue and San Felipe here.

The groups, Sulog and Save 651, have released a petition earlier today on social media to strongly protest the "retrogressive plan of the DPWH."

"WHILE WE UPHOLD the need for safe roads and highways, and passable thoroughfares, we believe these can be achieved without harming, injuring, or cutting decades and century-old trees," the petition reads.

"TREES ALONG ROADS AND HIGHWAYS are not inimical to public interest or public safety; neither are they obstacles to progress and development," it continues.

""WE CALL FOR ACTION from our responsible Local Government Officials to actively and actually pursue a green propaganda and PUT A STOP to non-renewal actions. We used to call for a Clean and Green Naga City; Without trees how could that be possible? The Official Logo of Naga City has a symbolic tree in it, how have we ignored our very own symbol? WE LIVE IN THIS DANGEROUS ERA OF GLOBAL WARMING, and Our conscious efforts in alleviating its effects could be an insurmountable challenge; but it must be done."

"THEREFORE, We sign this Petition to ask the DENR, DPWH, and the LGU Naga City to CEASE and DESIST from all tree-cutting activities and CONVENE all sectors to address once and for all the viable and green alternatives available to us."

"Let us all lend a hand to save trees," it adds.

POEA warns vs fake websites luring jobseekers




The Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) warned the public against several fake websites luring those who are looking for jobs abroad.

This after the agency has identified unscrupulous websites which use its name and logo.

Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) Undersecretary Bernard Olalia warned overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) and those who are planning to apply for employment in other countries, to verify first the legitimacy of job vacancies.

He noted that the proliferation of some fake POEA pages in social media, particularly on Facebook such as Donald HRserv, POEA Jobs Online, OFW POEA Jobs Abroad, POEA Jobs Abroad, POEA Job Hiring USA, POEA Job Hiring Australia, POEA Job Hiring UK, POEA Job Agency Hiring, POEA Trabaho Abroad Hiring, POEA Jobs in Dubai, Work Abroad-POEA Licensed Company, and POEA Accredited Licensed Agency.

The agency issued the warning after it received reports that some unscrupulous individuals and groups are illegally using their name and logo to advertise job vacancies in countries such as Australia, Canada, Germany, Japan, New Zealand and the United States.

Olalia added that these job opportunities advertised on social media are not verified nor approved by the POEA, adding that the public can either validate the legitimacy of the job vacancies or the recruitment agencies through the official website of POEA, www.poea.gov.ph/.

Likewise, he clarified that the agency's official Facebook accounts are www.facebook.com/mypoea and www.facebook.com/poea.official. These pages have check marks which are authenticated by Facebook.

The public may call their hotline numbers at 7221144 and 7221155, for inquiries, concerns, and to verify legitimate job vacancies and recruitment agencies. (Ferdinand G. Patinio/PNA)

SPECIAL REPORT: In Naga City, bakwits from Marawi cry for help



NAGA CITY 7/19/17 (Bicol Standard) – “We have lost everything, except the hope of living again,” 22-year-old Norhana Bonca, one of the 50 or so bakwits or evacuees from war-torn Marawi City who came to Naga City told the BICOL STANDARD.

Now residing in a small and cramped house in Lerma, Bonca narrated that they fled their city after a bomb fell on their rooftop.

“We were feeling very unsafe as we would hear gunfire and bombings all day long,” she said.

Taking only the most basic needs that they could carry, they went to Cagayan de Oro City to escape the crisis.

“We had nothing to eat for a week. We had limited money, and the price of a sack of rice there reached more than 7,000 pesos.”

Some bakwits, she narrated, even turned to eating non-edible items such as Styrofoam, if only to stave off hunger.

Bonca said their group decided to go to Naga City, where they have a relative, Armela Bonca-Paqui.

Bonca-Paqui, who now hosts the evacuees in her home, said she did not hesitate to welcome her relatives, who have nowhere else to go.

“Some of the children are still suffering from trauma. One even has stopped speaking and just lays down in bed all day long because of what they experienced in their village,” she said. “They probably need medical attention."

Meantime, 26-year-old Alinoding Alexander, is being treated at Bicol Medical Center for internal bleeding.

“We are appealing to the good people of Bicol to send us help as we try to rebuild our lives,” Norhana Bonca pleaded, blinking back tears.
