Cuy also urged local chief executives (LCEs) to prepare and review their current La Niña action plans/Oplan Tag-ulan Plans submitted to the DILG field offices and evaluate if local preparedness measures are adequate based on PAGASA’s La Niña forecast.

The LCEs were advised to closely coordinate with PAGASA for timely weather updates, and with the Mines and Geosciences Bureau (MGB) for adequate information on the threat of flooding and rainfall-induced landslides within their respective areas of responsibility.

They were also advised to undertake early preparedness actions for La Niña as stated based on the Operation Listo manuals developed by the DILG.

Albay provincial gov't mulls partnership with Rotary Club for environment campaign



Incoming and outgoing presidents Sebastien Domingues and Ferdinand Armedilla of the Rotary Club of Metro Legazpi met with Albay Governor Al Francis Bichara at the Governor’s Office to discuss the possibility of forging a partnership in a massive environment campaign to help keep the province litter- and garbage-free.

In the said meeting, Mr. Domingues presented the “Don’t Mess with Albay” campaign which aims to create an identity statement for Albay which connotes its disdain for trash and its proliferation.

Mr. Domingues said that the campaign is all about empowering Albayanos to maintain cleanliness in their community and spreading the message all throughout the province, as well as to visitors coming in to Albay.

“This could be Albayanos battle cry, when we say ‘Don’t mess with Albay,’ the connotation is that we do not like it when you litter in our community and we won’t stand for it if you do,” he said.

The slogan, which will be printed in various materials such as shirts, caps, bags, stickers, badges, and others, will also be used as a hashtag #dontmesswithalbay for its online campaign.

Aside from increasing awareness to the slogan, the program also aims to do various clean-up drives and information dissemination in the dangers of massive garbage build-up and the positive outcome of regularly cleaning the community.

Garbage segregation is also an integral aspect of the program.

In their discussion with Governor Bichara, who also provided his own insights, the possibility of including a food for work program may be included in the project to entice community members to participate in regular clean-up drives.

Mr. Armedilla said that the members of the community should be able to make it a habit to clean up after themselves so that the program may be sustainable.

”We cannot rely on one time clean up projects, as we ourselves should be responsible for the cleanliness of our surroundings, this equates to better quality of living,” Mr. Armedilla added.

Other program inclusions discussed where the possibility of putting up a recycling center and conducting livelihood programs utilizing recycled materials collected by the project.

On a final note, Mr. Sebastien Domingues, a Belgian proudly married to an Albayana, and the incoming president of the Rotary Club of Metro Legazpi, said after the meeting that he is hopeful that the partnership with the PGA will fall through.

“I see years of fruitful cooperation between our club and the PGA, this is a long-term sustainable program which is all inclusive, meaning, all Albayanos will benefit from this.” Mr. Domingues said. (PGA-PIO)

Bet on GSW vs Cavs triggers killing in Albay


LEGAZPI CITY 6/14/17 (Bicol Standard)--The bitter rivalry between fans of the Golden State Warriors and the Cleveland Cavaliers has turned deadly and claimed a life in Daraga, Albay.

Media reports say businessman Jamael Malawi, 33 years old, a native of Lanao del Sur and temporarily residing at T Perez Street, Brgy. Market Site was shot by a suspect following the NBA Finals game yesterday.

Prior to the shooting, the victim and the suspect had an altercation when the victim demanded for the suspect to pay up, reports say.

The bet was at least P30,000.

Meanwhile, the police said a witness described the suspect as stout, of fair complexion, 5'6" to 5'7" in height, wearing an orange shirt and dark denim pants, and had a black and green backpack.

The suspect, according to the witness, was armed with a gun of an unknown caliber, and shot at different parts of the body of the victim at around 6:15 p.m at the market site.

After the shooting, the gunman fled to the direction of the interior part of the public market.

The victim was rushed to the Bicol Regional Teaching and Training Hospital (BRTTH) but was pronounced dead on arrival by the attending physician.

The suspect remains unidentified as of this writing.

Investigation is still ongoing.

It will be recalled that fairly recently, pedicab driver Elmer Villacera from Zone 4, Laplaya Subd., Brgy. Bonot was gunned down by two unidentified persons riding-in-tandem in Legazpi City.

Bongalonta seeks court relief; files petition for certiorari


NAGA CITY (Bicol Standard) A petition for certiorari with prayer for the issuance of an Injunction or the issuance of a Temporary Restraining Order (TRO), is now pending before Branch 32 of the Regional Trial Court (RTC) of Pili, Camarines Sur, by Pili Mayor Tomas Bongalonta, Jr.

It will be recalled that Bongalonta was imposed a two-month administrative suspension by the Sangguniang Panlalawigan of Camarines Sur, which stemmed from a complaint signed by Punong Barangay Yolanda Berina of New San Roque, Pili.

In her (Berina’s) administrative complaint, the said Bongalonta should be preventively suspended, due to his violations of the law, when he employed David O. Olaguera as driver/body guard, when in fact he is an elected member of the barangay council.

Last Friday (June 9) the preventive suspension order which signed by Gov. Migz Villafuerte was personally served to Bongalonta.

Bongalonta told the Bicol Standard that he is waiting for the decision of the court on the petition that he filed.

“I believe that I am still the mayor of Pili. I will wait for the resolution of my petition with the Regional Trial Court,” Bongalonta said in the interview.

Meanwhile, in a related development, Atty. Amador Simando, a member of the Sangguniang Panlalawigan of Camarines Sur confirmed the report that the preventive suspension against Bongalonta has been in effect since June 9.

Responding to the claim of Bongalonta that his suspension is politically motivated, Simando just laughed off the said claim.

He (Simando) said the law is very clear on the matter that an incumbent member of the barangay council could not be appointed in any position, because it violates the pertinent provision of law.

The suspension of Bongalonta has triggered further the political rivalry between Bongalonta and former Mayor Nonoy San Luis, nephew of Board Member Simando, who lost miserably last election.

Meanwhile, Vice Mayor Rogelio Regondola has assumed office as the Acting Mayor of Pili, Camarines Sur.

Albay’s 'pinangat' ranks 22nd in Top 50 World Street Food list


'Pinangat', one of Albay’s outstanding ethnic dishes that have been making waves in world food expos, has bagged the 22nd spot in the Top 50 World Street Food Masters list at the recently concluded World Street Food Congress (WSFC) 2017 in Manila.

The Top 50 eats include Singapore's Hill St. Hwa Pork Noodle, Franklin’s BBQ of Austin, Texas, US and Bangkok's Che Paek Pu Ob Voon Sen.

Aside from its intrinsic savory taste, the pinangat's success is partly credited to Albay 2nd district Rep. Joey Salceda's 2D Culinaria initiative that focuses on food and travel, and supports ethnic cuisines and local food producers.

The 2D Culinaria Albay program was derived from the original Culinaria Albay, which significantly enhanced the local food industry and opened new avenues for small and medium food producers and entrepreneurs in the province. On account of its successful participation in past international food expos, the Department of Tourism has tasked 2D Culinaria Albay to represent the Bicol region in the May 31-June 4 WSFC held at the Mall of Asia in Pasay City.

The WSFC has been acclaimed as a resounding success, and local entrepreneur Zeny’s pinangat of Camalig town in Albay made it to the 22nd spot in the Top 50 World Street Food Masters list. The pinangat is a concoction of pork or fish wrapped in taro leaves, and gently simmered in coconut milk.

Two native Albay dishes were presented during the WSFC -- the Bicol Express risotto and the pinangat burger. Both merited good reviews and were included in the “10 things to try at WSFC” by Spot.ph; the “8 must-try dishes” by interaksyon.com; and the “7 local food picks” by ABS-CBN.

2D Culinaria Albay’s success at the WSFC followed its equally outstanding presentation last month at the IFEX Philippines, one of the country's biggest international trade exhibitions.

The WSFC featured 28 of the world’s best Street Food Masters from 12 countries who dished out authentic mouth-watering heritage street food for five days. Present during the congress were world-class chef and TV host Anthony Bourdain, and WSF organizer Makansutra, a photojournalist-entrepreneur and founder of KF Seetoh of Singapore. Albay’s 2D Culinaria team included Oriental Legazpi's executive chef Andhei Nacion and two sous-chefs.

Salceda has sustained his support for his province’s food industry through the Culinaria Albay brand and has urged Albayanos to patronize local products to support the native industry, and promote their chefs and homegrown restauranteurs in the global food arena.

The 2D Culinaria Albay has also joined the Madrid Fusion Manila food exposition last April 6-8 at the SMX Mall of Asia, after which three international chefs and food writers from Russia, London and the Middle East visited Albay and Sorsogon as their post-expo destination, a validation that Culinaria Albay is on the right track, said Salceda.

The Madrid Fusion food expo was among Albay’s most notable and productive participation in food expos, where buyers — having been familiarized with the Albayano ethnic tastes in previous events — showed astounding interest in Albayano cuisine.

In recent years, Albay has been acknowledged and conferred various awards for its culinary tourism and its notable global tourism assets that have drawn international tourists in droves. (PNA)

Legarda: Ending child labor is a must


In observance of the World Day Against Child Labor (June 12), Senator Loren Legarda said that ending child labor is a must, stressing the right of children to a life free from violence, exploitation and abuse.

According to the United Nations, around 168 million children remain trapped in child labor and many of them live in areas affected by conflict and disaster.

"Millions of children are exposed to multiple forms of abuses such as sexual exploitation and sex trafficking, forced labor, internal displacement, among others. Disasters and armed conflicts make them even more vulnerable to abuses as poor women and children are preyed upon by human trafficking syndicates," said Legarda, Chair of the Senate Committees on Finance, Foreign Relations, and Climate Change.

The Senator said the situation requires a multi-disciplinary protection system, which involves stricter implementation of anti-trafficking and anti-child labor laws, providing livelihood opportunities to parents so they can send their children to school, coordinated response among different concerned agencies and strengthened international cooperation.

Legarda said that in the Philippines, child labor should be addressed with the help of legal measures already in place such as the Anti-Child Labor Law, the Expanded Anti-Trafficking in Persons Act, and the Domestic Workers Act.

The Anti-Child Labor Law, which Legarda co-authored, protects children from being engaged into work outside the protection of their parents or guardian, and that which might endanger their life, safety and development.

The Expanded Anti-Trafficking in Persons Act, which the Senator principally sponsored, protects children from being trafficked through its strengthened provisions which also covers attempted trafficking and accessory or accomplice liability.

The Domestic Workers Act, which Legarda co-authored and co-sponsored, deems it unlawful to employ children below 15 years of age as domestic worker, while those who are 15 years old but below 18 years of age, are considered as working children and are protected under the Anti-Child Labor Act.

Meanwhile, since children in disaster and conflict areas become more vulnerable to trafficking, proactive measures to prevent disasters should be intensified through the implementation of the Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Act and the Climate Change Law.

Legarda also said that there is now a law, the Children's Emergency Relief and Protection Act, which mandates government to establish and implement a strategic program of action to provide children affected by disasters, calamities and other emergency situations with utmost support and assistance necessary for their immediate recovery and to protect them against all forms of abuse and exploitation.

"We must strictly implement these laws to end child labor and protect our children from circumstances that will affect their survival and normal development. The time will come when they must work, but for as long as they are children, they must be protected, cared for, and assured their rights as children," Legarda concluded.

The International Labour Organization (ILO) launched the World Day Against Child Labor in 2002 to focus attention on the global extent of child labor and the action and efforts needed to eliminate it. The theme for this year's observance is "In conflicts and disasters, protect children from child labor." (Senate)

LGUs urged to ensure food safety outside school premises


The Department of Health (DOH) on Sunday reminded local government units to ensure that ambulant food vendors outside school premises will not be selling unhealthy foods to students.

DOH Program Manager for Nutrition Luz Tagunicar said LGUs should do their part in ensuring that unhealthy and unsafe food often sold by ambulant vendors will not be offered to students.

"LGUs should be the ones that would regulate these (ambulant vendors) as the these areas outside the campus are already outside the jurisdiction of school authorities," Tagunicar said.

She said that safety and cleanliness of food cannot be assured among ambulant vendors since the source of water and even the ingredients used for the food and handling were not actually monitored prior to selling.

"They don't have access to clean water needed to cook food and wash their utensils. There is higher risk of having food poisoning or contaminated food that will be harmful to the children," the nutritionist and dietician said.

In addition, the health official added that foods sold by some ambulant vendors like ready-to-eat food products should be monitored since these may be lacking the necessary nutrition for children.

Oftentimes, shed added, they are either too sweet or too salty or are very oily.

She added that excessive sugar and salt and other ingredients are being used to prolong their shelf life.

She warned that as a result of eating these products, children in the long run are bound to get non-communicable diseases like hypertension and even diabetes.

Aside from LGUs, the DOH official said parents are also expected to do their part in ensuring the health and safety of their children.

"If you want your children to eat healthy food, the mothers must be really the one to prepare food. It is very difficult for the mother. But the health of their family today and in the future is really in their hands," she said.

She said parents should influence their children and advised them not to buy food sold outside their schools.

She said parents should be the first ones to remind their children to follow what is best for them like eating the healthy food choices which have less sugar, salt and fat content or avoid sugary drinks and salty foods.

"Sometimes, it is difficult. We need to have tough love when it comes to our children's food," said Tagunicar.

In addition to that, she said it also requires some form of sacrifice for the parents to be creative in the preparation.

Just last week, schoolyear 2017-2018 had officially opened for public schools and some private schools.

Other private schools are also expected to open their classes this week.

The promotion of healthy foods in schools is heightened this year through the Department of Education (DepEd) Order No. 13 issued last March.

Under that DO 13, the DepEd bans sweetened beverage and junk foods in schools.

It likewise promotes selling of foods that will be healthier and nutritious for children.

It also called on schools to coordinate with LGUs on ensuring that healthy foods within certain parameters outside the school premises will be promoted. (Leilani S. Junio/PNA)

Filipinos urged: Show patriotism beyond Independence Day


MANILA--Patriotism should be practiced every day, not just on Independence Day, Sen. Panfilo Lacson said Monday during the flag-raising ceremony in Aguinaldo Shrine in Kawit, Cavite.

"Sana ay hindi lamang tuwing ika-12 ng Hunyo natin nararamdaman ang pagkamakabayan at nasyonalismo (I hope that it is not only every June 12th where we feel patriotism and nationalism)," Lacson said in his speech.

Lacson stressed that several history books have mentioned the importance of “unity” as an ingredient to achieve common goals; he also said that it was also key in hurdling the country's obstacles.

He, however, pointed out that the proclamation of independence did not mean Filipinos no longer continued to fight for independence. In fact, he said Filipinos continue to fight for it until now.

"Ang pakikipaglaban para sa kalayaan ay hindi nagtapos kasabay ng proklamasyon ni Hen. Aguinaldo mahigit isang siglo na ang nakalilipas. Ang kalayaan ay hindi ginugunita bilang isang kabanata lamang ng kasaysayan. Manapa'y ito ay patuloy na ipinaglalaban at iniaalagaan para sa kasalukuyang henerasyon at sa mga susunod pang salinlahi (Fighting for independence does not end with the proclamation of Gen. Aguinaldo more than a century ago. Independence is not merely a chapter in our history. It is continued to be fought for and taken care of for the future generations)," Lacson said.

The senator stressed that despite the annual celebration of Independence Day, there are still new threats that could suppress or are already suppressing Philippine independence.

"…Marami pa ring bagay-bagay na patuloy na sumisiil sa ating kalayaan. Kabilang na rito ang kahirapang dulot ng talamak na katiwalian (There are still many things that suppress our independence. Some of these include poverty that arises from corruption)," Lacson said.

He also cited other threats including terrorism, violence, and illegal drugs among others.

"Hindi natin maitatanggi na nahaharap tayong muli sa makabagong hamon laban sa mga indibidwal at iba't ibang grupo na tila ba ay nagpupumilit umagaw sa kalayaan at mapayapang pamumuhay na noon pa man ay atin nang ipinaglalaban (We cannot deny that we are facing new challenges versus individuals and other groups that forcibly try to take our independence and our peaceful way of living that we have long fought for)," the senator said.

He was referring to local terror group Maute group which has wreaked havoc in Marawi City for several weeks and killed hundreds of civilians and soldiers.

The former Philippine National Police chief, meanwhile described the soldiers as “modern-day Katipuneros” for they continue to risk their lives in efforts to maintain peace and order.

Simultaneous flag-raising and wreath-laying rites were held in various parts of the country including Rizal Park in Manila; the Pinaglabanan Shrine in San Juan City; the Barasoain Church in Malolos, Bulacan; Bonifacio Monument, Caloocan City among others. (Azer N. Parrocha/PNA)

DOH: Bicolanos at risk of getting ‘WILD’


LEGAZPI CITY — The Department of Health (DOH) in Bicol is urging the public to take precautions to ward off diseases common at the onset of the rainy season.

DOH Regional Director Napoleon L. Arevalo said the communicable diseases common during the monsoon season go by the acronym WILD, which, as coined by DOH, stands for “water-borne infectious diseases, influenza, leptospirosis and dengue.”

“We should be prepared and well-informed of these health risks for us to prevent them. WILD diseases are usually more prevalent during the wet season,” Arevalo said during a press conference held Thursday at the DOH Daguinsin Hall.

“It is advised for the public to have enough rest, exercise and maintain a healthy diet to boost the body’s resistance (against illnesses),” he added.

To prevent going down with water-borne diseases which result from water contamination, the public is encouraged to practice proper waste disposal.

These diseases, transmitted by ingestion or contamination, include diarrheal disorders.

To protect children, pregnant women, the elderly, and those who have weak immune systems who are more susceptible to influenza, Arevalo encouraged their caregivers to take simple preventative measures.

Influenza, or the common flu, is best prevented by frequent hand washing, covering one’s mouth and nose when sneezing or coughing, and avoiding crowded places.

“Parents should make sure that their children are protected from rains and flashfloods by providing them with rain gears like umbrella, boots and rancoats. They should always be in tuned with weather forecast and be proactive,” Arevalo said.

Flu is transmitted by droplets that enter the body through the nose or mouth. It is characterized by cold-like symptoms including body aches and headaches.

“Moreover, flu can develop into serious complications like pneumonia,” Arevalo said.

For older adults who have weak immune systems, having a flu vaccine is also recommended.

Leptospirosis and dengue are also health risks this season. Leptospirosis is usually acquired through contact with water or soil that has been contaminated with rat urine and feces, which explains why people are advised against wading in flood waters.

“Its symptoms include high fever, headache, muscle aches especially of the calf, abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting, red eyes and chills.

In its severe form, leptospirosis causes kidney damage, liver and respiratory failure and meningitis,” Arevalo said.

Another year-round problem that peaks during the rainy season is dengue, which is transmitted by the bite of Aedes mosquito, which breeds in stagnant water.

Although he noted a 25 percent decrease in dengue cases in the region, from 738 in 2016 to 555 in 2017, Arevalo said the incidence is expected to increase during the rainy season because of the increase in the breeding areas for the female Aedes aegypti, the vector-mosquito.

The safety precautions against dengue include searching for and destroying the breeding sites of dengue-carrying mosquitoes, wearing long sleeves, using insect repellants, putting screens on windows and doors, seeking early medical attention for fevers that last more than two days, and consenting to fogging when there is an impending outbreak, he said
