Optimism improves amidst slightly higher self-rated poverty in Naga City


The 2018 First Quarter Naga City Poverty and Governance Public Opinion Poll found that 38.5% of Nagueños considered themselves “poor."

This self-rated poverty incidence increased by 5.5 percentage points from last year’s 33% of the same quarter. Median poverty threshold or the amount of monthly income that an average Nagueño household needs to be considered “not poor” is ₽20,000. Moreover, 62.8% deemed themselves as food secure, which is lower compared to last year’s first quarter result of 64.8%. Respondents claimed that they are poor due to low income (55.2%), lack of permanent job (29.2%), and no permanent housing (7.1%).

More than two out of five Nagueños (44.3%) reported that their quality of life has improved compared to the past 6 months, while few (18.5%) reported that it worsened. This resulted to a “moderate” net personal gain of +25.8 points. In addition, more than half of Nagueños (55.5%) anticipate that their quality of life in the next 6 months will get better while very few (5.5%) anticipate that it will get worse. These responses resulted to a “very high” net personal optimism of +50 points.

Majority (54.3%) of the respondents are aware of President Duterte’s plan to amend the 1987 Philippine Constitution. More than half (55.3%) of those who are aware of the plan oppose it while very few (8.3%) favor the revision of the constitution. This resulted to a “bad” net agreement of -47%. The poll further reveals that even though a large number of respondents (57.5%) are aware of the proposed change from unitary system of government to a federal state, the plan garnered weak support from the respondents. Among those who are aware, 20.9% approved while 50.9% disapproved (weak net agreement of -30%).

The flooding in Naga City in the last five years has increased according to a great majority (64.8%) of the respondents while very few (7.8%) said that the flooding decreased. Nagueños cited the top three reasons of flooding which include shallow or narrow drainage system (37.1%), clogged
drainage system (35.9%), and fewer trees (15.8%).

This quarter’s poll asked Nagueños if they knew of Naga City LGU’s plan to make CCTV cameras a requirement for issuance of business permit. Three out of five (63.5%) are aware while the remaining 36.5% are not aware of such plan. Among those who are aware of the plan, almost all (83.9%) agreed and very few (4.3%) disagreed; 11.8% remained neutral. These responses resulted to a “very strong” net agreement rating of +79.6%.

Among selected public service offices in Naga, the City Social Welfare and Development Office (CSWDO) got a ‘very good’ net satisfaction 1 rating of +56.8%. Camarines Sur II Electric Cooperative, Inc. (CASURECO II), Naga City Police Office (NCPO), and Naga City Hospital got a ‘good’ net satisfaction rating of +43.9%, +42.5% and +45.3%. Bicol Medical Center (BMC) garnered a ‘moderate’ net satisfaction rating of +20.7%.

Majority of Catholic Nagueños (56.3%) practice fasting in observance of Lent while 43.8% do not. Among those who practice fasting, 29.8% fast during Ash Wednesday, 28% fast on all Fridays of Lent, and 19.6% fast a day or two within the Lenten season.

Nagueños were also asked if they buy products through the Internet and only about one in five (18.5%) said that they do. A great majority (63.5%) buy online through Lazada, followed by Facebook (29.7%), then Shopee (5.4%). Nagueños frequently bought gadgets (31.1%), clothing (28.4%), and shoes (16.2%) online.

When asked whether they think women and men have equal rights in the present, 58.5% of Nagueños agreed, 17% were neutral, and 24.5% disagreed, with a moderate net agreement of +34%. The picture is however different when it comes to same-sex amorous relationships. Only 20.5% agreed, 14% were neutral, and a great majority (65.5%) disagreed with both men or both women falling in love, with a net agreement of -45%.

The 2018 First Quarter Naga City Poverty and Governance Public Opinion Poll used face-to-face interviews of 400 residents randomly selected from legal-age population of all barangays of Naga City. The error margin is ±4.9%. The survey was conducted from January 27 to February 16 by the Ateneo Student Researchers Pool, which consists of 11 student scholars of the Ateneo de Naga University (ADNU), assisted by six work immersion students of the ADNU Senior High School; under the guidance of the Ateneo Social Science Research Center staff and funding from the University Research Council. The study adapts Social Weather Station (SWS) methodology and uses its rating interpretation terminology.

DepEd set to roll out EskweLA BAN sa Sigarilyo nationwide


PASIG CITY — Beginning next school year, all schools nationwide are expected to be part of EskweLA BAN sa Sigarilyo, an initiative that aims to strengthen the implementation of the Department of Education’s (DepEd) tobacco control policy.

As the current school year draws to a close, DepEd is also culminating its EskweLA BAN sa Sigarilyo Project, a three-year project in partnership with the Tobacco-Free Kids Action Fund. Implemented in select schools in the cities of Pasig and Makati, and the provinces of Batangas, Bulacan, Bataan, and Pampanga, the project developed and pilot-tested implementation mechanisms aimed to build the capacity of DepEd personnel in effectively carrying out the Department’s tobacco control policy.

“The EskweLA BAN sa Sigarilyo Project ends in its pilot-testing phase, and its components will be adapted by DepEd for roll-out nationwide,” Undersecretary for Legal Affairs Alberto Muyot, who has also served as the director of the project, shared.

Muyot is pertaining to the monitoring and reporting tools, training manuals, and school-based campaign materials which were developed by the project to support schools in their implementation of the comprehensive tobacco control policy.

A ceremonial turnover of these materials was held on March 23, 2018 at DepEd Central Office, Pasig City.

The project brand EskweLA BAN sa Sigarilyo is a play on the Filipino words eskwela, laban, and eskwela ban to communicate that schools (eskwela), through the school’s bans (eskwela ban), are on a collective fight (laban) against tobacco (sigarilyo). Intended to carry two meanings – the school's bans on cigarettes or the school's fight against tobacco – EskweLA BAN sa Sigarilyo aims to increase public awareness of the bans stipulated in DepEd Order No. 48, s. 2016 (DO 48, s. 2016) or the Policy and Guidelines on Comprehensive Tobacco Control, and to build the capacity of schools, through their respective Child Protection Committees, to effectively take a stand against tobacco by implementing the strategies enumerated in the Order.

DO 48, s. 2016 mandates the Child Protection Committee, which has already been set up in all schools since 2012 and chaired by the Principal, to monitor compliance with and report violations of various tobacco control policies such as (1) bans on smoking in schools; (2) bans on the sale and advertisement of tobacco products within the 100-meter perimeter of schools, and (3) bans on receiving sponsorships from the tobacco industry and other unnecessary interactions with the tobacco industry.

The same DO further identified strategies for the effective implementation of the policy including: (1) information, education, and communication, (2) cessation interventions, (3) collaborations, partnerships and linkages, (4) capacity building, and (5) reporting and monitoring.

Agri advisory body okays P727-M projects for 4 Bicol provinces


By Connie Calipay

LEGAZPI CITY -- The Department of Agriculture’s advisory body has approved seven sub-projects worth PHP727 million for four provinces in the Bicol region, among them farm-to-market roads (FMR) meant to increase farm productivity.

The Philippine Rural Development Project’s (PRDP) Regional Project Advisory Board (RPAB) for Bicol gave the green light to the PHP198.69-million rehabilitation and improvement of the 8.3-km. Hacienda-Rawis FMR in Tabaco City, Albay; and the PHP246.30-million concreting of the 15-km. San Agustin-Sawang FMR in Aroroy, Masbate.

The board also endorsed for funding this year two Investments in Rural Enterprises and Agriculture and Fisheries Productivity (I-REAP) sub-projects worth PHP11 million for the municipalities of Sta. Elena and Labo, both in Camarines Norte.

DA regional information officer Emily Bordado said these projects are designed to increase the productivity and marketability of agriculture and fishery products in the provinces of Albay, Camarines Norte, Masbate, and Catanduanes through increased access to information, network, and support services.

"We expect that the farm and fishery household incomes would increase through engagement in value-adding activities and it would improve the protection and conservation of the natural resource base of identified enterprises through alternative livelihoods and support facilities,” Bordado said in an interview Wednesday.

The RPAB is the body that provides guidance, reviews and approves undertakings for funding under PRDP, which covers the PHP8.2-billion Intensified Building-Up of Infrastructure and Logistics for Development (I-BUILD) budget from 2018 to 2020.

Priority sub-projects will still undergo the regular PRDP review process. (PNA)

Teacher's Point of View


By: Franklyn D. Vargas
Rawis National High School
Young Educator


Let me share with you the 10 steps to a very successful life. I’ve heard this from Bo Sanchez’ Fulltank and somehow it became my guide in achieving whatever it is that I am destined to do. Are you ready? Step 1 - you got to ask what you want. You have to know what you want to achieve and pray for it. Ask for His ultimate guidance. Step 2 - You got to act. Step 3 - Act again. Step 4 - Act again. Step 5-9: Act on it. Step 10 - Did I say you got to act? My dear graduates, I have a very simple message to all of you. Many have lost the drive to reach their goals. Many have given up their dreams. Why? At some point in our lives we had that beautiful dream and overwhelming goals to achieve. It all seemed attainable. May it be to help our hardworking parents someday. To become that brilliant lawyer, doctor, teacher, engineer, and even hav- ing a shot at show busi- ness, gusto makaartista, makaabot sa wow- owee. Those dreams… But why do people fail? Because they failed to act on their dreams. They failed to make that very first step that could have been the start of it all. You know some- times people are stuck in a job for like 10 years, a job they never wanted, a job they hated everyday but they chose to mis- erably remain because they don’t want to start looking for a new one, the job that they’ve been longing for a very long time. What went wrong? They never acted on it. Do not give up because you are afraid to fail. The measure of success may I tell you is not having millions in your bank accounts, although it isn’t bad to have that. I would love that. The measure of success is having that nice big smile after a long day at school even after your sanity has almost been drained by students like you. My success is being a teacher, an educa- tor, by doing what I love to do most, magturó. I would like to take you back to the time when Franklyn was a student in this very institution, Im- maculate Heart Heart of Mary School-Bacon. A son of a fisherman, parasira. Si mama, sa balay sana, minsan naglalabada minsan, nagtatabang kay papa magtinda ki sira. Parehong daeng natapos. Napaparong ko pa hasta ngonyan an grabeng pagtios. Pero pareho kan parong kan pagtios, inambisyon ko na maparong an tagumpay. We never had the chance to choose our family. But we certainly have the chance to choose the path to take. I am lucky to have a loving family which made insufficiency a lot bearable. You see, you can actually make these almost hopeless situations work for you. I had the advantage from everyone, I’ve known poverty before I’ve learned my ABCs. Nata ta matumang ka pa sa magurang kun grabe an tinitios ninda urualdaw? It makes no sense. Nata mapaagom o maagom ka tulos kun aram mong matios pare- ho kan saimong inagi- han? We need to learn from hardships, trials and misfortunes. It is the avenue to best edu- cate yourself because you’d never want to be in the same situation ever again. Importante na may kanaramon sa mga inagi- han na bakung maray na sitwasyon ta nakaaram kang itanos o tumanos. One thing that I am most proud of, pwede maghambog? I’ve loved everything about study- ing and learning. I never wasted all the opportu- nities to learn because I knew, at a very young age, education will change my life. I graduated as val- edictorian in this school, Batch 2002, pwede ma- ghambog? I’ve had the chance to study in college under City scholarship Program and I focused on finishing college like I am aiming for bullseye eve- ryday! Pwede magham- bog? Sorry wala pala sa Marian Core Values an paghambog. I am overly blessed because these values are my guiding light to all those hardships. Nata pwede ko ihambog? Ikuruhaw? Because dreams do come true. When we believe in ourselves, that is, believing in our strengths while recognizing our weaknesses, we can con- quer the world. Not in an instant but I know in God’s perfect tim- ing, we can do anything. Dear students, my aspirations made me love the right things, Do not be tempted to take shortcuts and the easy way because they often mislead to wrongful decisions. . I assure you, though it’s a long-exhausting trip, it’s worth it. Just remember this, in all that you do, put your heart to it. Learn to gather your confidence and strength in knowing that you are doing the right things with the best intentions. Surround yourselves with the right people. What do I mean by that? Find your mentors. It is important that you are guided by the best influences from friends and family. The right people are not usually boring, it only means that you have the same goals and aspirations. I am fortunate to have found some men- tors in this institution. To where I am going or more of what I will become in the future may still be un- certain, God knows, I might be destined to be an artista. But you know what, success is relative. I am an educator, I am happy to be one. If there are other things that my heart desire, I will not fail to act on it whatever the outcome may be. To end, I have al- ways believed in the brilliance of this genera- tion. K to 12 focuses on the individual capac- ity of young students to develop their utmost potential. It challenges your ability to dig with- in yourselves, your in- nermost desires. Your dreams are yours to make alone. I would like to remind you that your future does not depend on what majority of your friends want, your parents’ desire and your girl/boyfriends’ wish. DAE KI- NOKOPYA AN PAN- GARAP. INI DE- SISYON SEGUN SA SAIMONG PAGMATI, KAKAYAHAN NAN PAGTUBOD. KUN AN GUSTO MO MAGING PARAOMA O PARASIRA, DAENG MAKAPUGOL SAIMO TA KUN IKA PIRITON NA MAGING INHINYERO PERO TAMBAY PALAN, TAMA AN SAIMONG DESISYON. My point dear students, the universe has no imperfection as its Creator, it is so balanced that it rewards your passion and hard- work but indifference to those who fail to – ACT!

President Duterte open to resume peace talks with Reds


BONGABONG, Oriental Mindoro — President Rodrigo Roa Duterte on Tuesday, April 3, called on communist rebels to immediately stop hostilities if they want to resume peace talks with government.

“So ito, first time ko ito nagsalita since (Joma) Sison is always mentioning about the peace process. I am ready. First thing is we should stop killing each other. Then if we can have peace; and if you do not have the money, government will subsidize it,” President Duterte said during the inauguration of the Lisap bridge in Barangay Hagan here.

The President said both the government and the New People’s Army (NPA) should agree on some fundamentals.

“In the meantime na kung gusto niyo talagang totohanan is you stop immediately, you and I ceasefire tayo. Ni walang isang putok, maski labintador and I would be happy,” he said.

He also urged the rebels to stop collecting revolutionary tax and harassing businessmen.

“Hintuan ninyo ang revolutionary government, huwag na kayong mag-sunog in the name of taxation kasi kakaawa ‘yung mga negosyante,” he said.

“Number one is ceasefire, no taxation, at ceasefire na labas-pasok para makapaggawa ako ng maraming ganito bridge all over the country,” he added.

Duterte also expressed willingness to shoulder the expenses during the peace process.

“Ako po’y ready — I will subsidize the peace process. Ako ‘yung babayad ng hotel, ako ‘yung babayad ng gastos ninyo. At ‘yung mga tao ninyo, kung ano ang naipon, ‘yun na muna ang gastusin ninyo,” he said.

Duterte reiterated that he cannot concede to the coalition government demanded by the rebels.

“For the simple reason that I do not own the sovereign power of the state,” he said.

The President stressed that government funds should be allotted for the construction of hospitals and schools than be wasted on senseless wars.

“Ayaw ko ngang magpatayan eh. Sayang ang pera. Gawa na lang natin ng ospital, gawa na lang natin ng mga eskwelahan, mag-usap na lang tayo,” he said.

President Duterte led the inauguration of Lisap Bridge project which is expected to reduce travel time from Bongabong to Roxas to 20 minutes and to benefit more than 7,000 motorists daily.

“A new two-lane Lisap Bridge will make the transport of people, goods and services safer and more comfortable,” he said. PND

Special agents to probe media killings deployed


By Jelly Musico

MANILA -- More than 20 special agents of the Presidential Task Force on Media Security (PTFoMS) have been deployed to investigate and/or reinvestigate unresolved killings of media workers in the most vulnerable regions of the country.

In a simple send-off ceremony on Monday, Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO) Secretary and PTFoMS co-chair Martin Andanar encouraged the special agents not to be intimidated in fulfilling their mission to finish all unresolved cases of media killing and harassment.

“There is no challenge that you cannot hurdle. You have the full backing of the whole bureaucracy and media community,” Andanar told the PTFoMS team.

Andanar assured them of President Rodrigo R. Duterte’s full support, citing the creation of PTFoMS through Duterte’s first administrative order signed in October 2016.

“Your job is very significant because this PTFoMS is not an ordinary administrative order. This is the No. 1 AO by the President and so, the President’s support for you is 100 percent,” he said.

He said the deployment marked another milestone in the Duterte administration’s campaign against impunity on members of the working press.

“We are here again to show to the world that the administration of President Duterte does not condone violence or repression of the media,” Andanar said.

Andanar said PTFoMS, under the stewardship of its executive director, Communications Undersecretary Joel Egco, has placed safety mechanism to ensure security and safety of the media workers.

Egco said PTFoMS agents have until April 6 to finish the task of reinvestigating media killing and harassment cases particularly in Regions 5, 6, 10 and 11.

“We have already investigated at least 60 cases but we want to make zero those unsolved cases and there are areas in these regions which have not submitted reports. So our agents will go there to know why they cannot provide us with necessary documents,” Egco explained.

Egco said the task force is hoping to finish all the unresolved cases within this year, adding that “failure is not an option” for the PTFoMS.

“We have done so much but we still have to go down to the provinces to investigate the unresolved cases because we want to remove our country from the list of the most dangerous countries for media,” he said.

He said the country has zero incidents of media killings and harassments for the last six months.

The deployment was part of the Vision 2020 Action Plan formulated by the PTFoMS during a seminar-workshop held recently at the National Press Club. (PNA)

FDA reiterates warning vs. fake drugs


By Leilani Junio

MANILA -- Amid the unequivocal support of President Rodrigo R. Duterte to Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) drive against fake drugs, the FDA on Sunday reiterated its warning on the potential danger posed by counterfeit drugs to the health of Filipinos.

“These may be contaminated, contain wrong, or no active ingredient, or are being dispensed at the wrong dosage,” said FDA Director-General Nela Charade Puno in a statement.

Puno added that fake drugs may cause adverse effects to their health instead of curing them.

“These fake drugs may cause more harm than good to their health if taken,” she added.
As a tip to avoid falling prey to counterfeit drugs, the public was advised by FDA to buy only from accredited drugstores and pharmacies.

“The consumers should purchase them only from government-licensed pharmacies and make sure they have the Certificate of Product Registration from the FDA,” she said.

The FDA official issued the warning after Duterte himself expressed all-out support to war against manufacturers and sellers of counterfeit drugs.

"The President’s backing has given us an even stronger resolve to put a stop to this practice which endangers the well-being of the public," she added.

With that she vowed to further intensify the joint operations between the FDA and the Philippine National Police (PNP) against the perpetrators which the President described as “economic saboteurs”.

Data shows that the FDA-PNP Joint Task Force D-PUNCH (Destroying Products Unfit for Human Consumption) has resulted in the seizure of more than PHP76 million worth of assorted counterfeit drugs from the period of March 2017 to March 2018.



The seized products, sold directly or via online selling, included counterfeit over-the-counter drugs such as paracetamol; pain killers; mefenamic acid; anti-diarrhea; loperamide, anti-arthritis; skin whitening; slimming tea; and anti-impotency drugs. (PNA)

Holy Week generally peaceful: PNP


MANILA -- The nation's observance of the Holy Week was generally peaceful, the Philippine National Police (PNP) said Monday.

PNP Director General Ronald dela Rosa made this assessment from updated field reports from the Police Regional Offices received by the PNP National Operations Center (NOC) for the Holy Week leg of Ligtas SUMVAC 2018 security and public safety operations.

The PNP chief said it will be up to regional directors to maintain the current full alert condition as they deem necessary until after travelers and motorists have safely returned to their homes from the long holiday.

As of final count, 35,390 police personnel -- manning 5,039 Police Assistance Centers -- were deployed in strategic locations to assist travelers and motorists returning to the urban centers.

“We thank the general public for cooperating with the Philippine National Police as we continue to serve you and ensure their safety during this summer vacation,” Dela Rosa said.

The PNP embarked on a 90-day summer security and public safety plan from the graduation week March through the Holy Week, onwards to the Flores de Mayo and fiesta season in May until the opening of classes in June.

The NOC did not monitor any significant or serious incident that threatened general peace and order, and internal security as of 6 a.m. on Monday except for vehicle accidents, drowning and sea mishaps.

Thirty-nine reports of drowning incidents in 10 regions around the country: 10 incidents were reported in Calabarzon, nine in Central Luzon, eight in the Cagayan Valley Region, five in Bicol, two in Davao and one incident each in Northern Luzon, Central Visayas, Eastern Visayas, Northern Mindanao, Southern Mindanao and Caraga regions.

The PNP Operations Center also received reports of 10 vehicular accidents: four in Central Luzon, two in Bicol and one incident each in Cordillera, Caraga and Cagayan Valley regions.

PNP rescue units responded to three sea mishaps that happened Western Visayas and Caraga region during the Holy Week, while under investigation are two cases of theft and two physical injury cases reported in Central Luzon and Caraga regions.

From Maundy Thursday until Black Saturday (March 31), the NOC monitored 16 separate internal security incidents in Mindanao and Luzon involving threat groups and criminal elements.

These include the series of skirmishes between government troops and New People’ Army rebels in Misamis Oriental; a landmine explosion in Camarines Sur; harassment in Masbate; separate encounters in Camarines Norte, Compostela Valley, Davao del Norte, and Davao del Sur, and an IED explosion in Sulu.
