Director Exequiel Sarcauga told the Philippine Information Agency that at least 30 overseas recruitment agencies and another 30 local employers will arrive to participate in the said Jobs Fair. Service desks of the SSS,GSIS, Philhealth and Civil Service Commission will also be set up during the event, including DOLE attached agencies like the POEA, Overseas Workers Welfare Association and TESDA. Applicants are advised to be armed with their bio-datas, resume, diplomas and clearances. A day before, or on December 13, a dental- optical mission and relief operations for victims of Yolanda will be conducted at Brgy. Valencia starting at 7:00 AM. Sarcauga said they would be distributing relief goods, school supplies, toys and slippers during that day. Call it the silver lining on a dark cloud but the influx of humanitarian organizations and NGOs to Leyte and Samar has also spawned employment opportunities. NGOs whove decided to adopt some barangays and towns in the region are hiring project implementers at high rates. Save the Children, which will

Mayor Carmen L. Cari


BAYBAY CITY Mayor Carmen L. Cari of this city, whose proclamation as the winner of the May 2013 polls was annulled by the Comelec 1st Division, said she is unperturbed by it, saying it would not change the results of the election. There will be just a re-canvassing and another proclamation, another ritual, she said, and I will be proclaimed as mayor once more. As of present, she emphasized, I am still the mayor of Baybay City. She added that, however, they are filing a motion for reconsideration against the ruling, not because they were contesting it, but wanted the 1st Division to be clear on who will shoulder

Damage to sugar estimated at almost P 1-Billion


ORMOC CITY What would have been a bumper crop year turned zilch for sugar planters of the Ormoc-Kananga Milling District here after Typhoon Yolanda ravaged their sugar farms, facilities, including their farmworkers homes and the lone sugar mill, HISUMCO, located at Brgy. Montebello, Kananga, Leyte. In a damage report and needs assessment obtained from Atty. Roy Bernard Fiel, chairman of the Ormoc-Kananga Milling District, damage to the sugar industry here was reported to have reached almost P 1-billion or P 973,546,343.87 to be exact. Fiel, who is also the governor of the Eastern Visayas Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Inc. (EVCCI), said Yolanda did not only damage the sugar industry, but battered the regions coconut industry which is its major crop. Fiel said that milling in Leytes sugar bowl was supposed to start on November 11. Their projection then was optimistic. Since it was a good year until Yolanda came, they were expecting an increase of production by 91,851 bags of sugar, or up by around 11 percent of last years production of 829,768 bags. Now, after Yolanda, they estimate a crop production loss of 30% and a 40% decrease in sugar production equivalent to around 405,512 bags. This, he said, translates to a loss of around P 60,000.00 per farmer per hectare. Meanwhile, Fiel said, they are imploring the national government to help them. In the next few

OCCCI members get Calamity cash assistance, relief goods
SUPERTYPHOON YOLANDA caused a massive destruction to Eastern Visayas. Specifically, it affected 37 OCCCI offices causing an estimated loss of properties and equipments of more than P 9.6-million and destroying the livelihood, properties and lives of 60% of its membership. Fortunately, OCCCI subsidized the premium for the Calamity Loss Insurance (CLI) of its members having at least P100.00 share capital as of September 2012. More than 3,000 affected members in Ormoc, Merida, Kananga and Villaba were granted P4,000.00 worth of construction materials while P4,000.00 cash were given to qualified members as CLI claims in Palompon Branch. As of this date, the cooperative is processing the documentary requirements for the CLI claims of other affected members who were not able to avail the outright cash release and credit slip for the construction materials. Aside from the CLI, those who paid the premium for the Cooperative Mortuary Program can claim the Calamity Assistance Benefit worth P5,000.00. OCCCI, through its partner agencies, distributed relief goods to affected members through its branches. PR

ORMOC CITY The Ormoc Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Inc. has asked the Bureau of Internal Revenue to grant special consideration to businesses and other taxpayers in Yolanda affected areas and allow them to recover in the next six months. In a resolution dated November 27, the Ormoc Chamber said that the extent and damage of Yolanda, said to be the strongest typhoon in recorded history to hit the planet, has not only ravaged government infrastructure but everything. In fact, not only did the city declare a state of calamity on November 10 but also the national government has declared a national state of calamity. The chamber said that admittedly, some businesses in the city had started operations on November 18 but on a limited scale while most have not opened yet. Furthermore, a substantial number of establishments could not issue Official Receipts because they were still at BIR-accredited printers who, in turn, could not deliver it yet because it got wet. To recall, BIR Ormoc was not able to process authority to prints swiftly and the city lagged behind in printing new receipts. To the surprise and dismay of many, the Chamber said, the BIR in Ormoc imposed penalties for late payments of withholding, VAT and Quarterly taxes that fell due on November 10, 15 and 20, respectively. The Chamber said the penalties were unreasonable, inconsiderate and inhumane. The chamber also noted that it would take at least one year for affected businesses to regain its normal operations, hence they are asking the BIR to suspend the imposition of all penalties for November taxes and

Ormoc chamber asks BIR for consideration

Petilla says NGCP, ECs are moving fast to restore power


TACLOBAN CITY Energy Secretary Carlos Jericho Petilla has directed the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines and the electric cooperatives to fast track its work to energize Yolanda-stricken areas in Eastern Visayas as soon as possible. In an interview with him last November 30, Petilla assured the people that they are doing their best to restore electricity in the region soon. This, with the help of various electric cooperatives in our country and the NGCP. However, he cautioned the workers of NGCP and the different cooperatives to be careful so as not to put their life at risk. Alam kung nagmamadali kayong lahat kasi mayroong tayong directive pero I also dont want another disaster, Petilla said. Electric power in the city of Maasin, Southern Leyte, Ormoc City, Babatngon Leyte, Calbayog and Catbalogan, Western Samar were already restored through the Cebu Grid. By December 15 or 20, the whole Eastern Visayas will get its power source from Luzon Grid while the electric line are yet being repaired. At least 6.5 billion pesos is needed to restore the electric power in the Visayas and it is estimated that it would take a year before the damaged geothermal power plants can be fully restored. It maybe recalled that Petilla promised that by December 24 this year all areas in the region are already energized. By Consuelo Alarcon/PIA

Ormoc LGU employees get P 30,000 each


ORMOC CITY The city council led by Vice Mayor Leo Carmelo Locsin Jr., on their regular session on Thursday, December 5, approved the release of P 34,467,000.00 as productivity enhancement incentive (PEI) for the citys 574 regular employees and 599 casual employees. The council passed the appropriation ordinance on 2nd and 3rd reading on the same day to facilitate its quick release. Vice Mayor Locsin Jr. said he is glad that the employees are getting the PEI. They need it badly, especially now, allow businessmen to pay it anytime within the year. Another is they are asking BIR to give allowance to businesses who need to have receipts re-printed because their old ones were rendered useless by Yolanda. The chamber also requests BIR to suspend the conduct of special assessments and audit within the next six months, and for those who were on the process of being audited or already given notice of dehe said, referring to how badly ravaged the city was by Yolanda. Qualified city employees will receive a maximum amount of P 30,000.00 while others will receive lower amounts, prorated depending on their number of months of service rendered this 2013. Among those whose take are pro-rated are the new set of city officials, said Vice Mayor Locsin. The funds were taken from unappropriated surplus of P 18.4-million for the year 2012 and P 16-million from personnel services ficiencies, to at least extend their deadlines beyond the six-month moratorium being asked for. Ormoc Chamber president Iigo Larrazabal also said the chamber is asking to dialogue with BIR to discuss remedies that would help the businesses here to flourish once more. Larrazabal said they will submit their resolution to BIR commissioner Kim Henares and hopes she would take to it kindly. savings. The amount of the incentive was determined by the city council per executive order No. 80 dated July 20, 2012 issued by Pres. Benigno Simeon C. Aquino III. The purpose is to motivate higher performance and greater accountability in the public sector. Those qualified to receive it are government employees occupying regular, contractual, or casual positions; appointive or elective; and even those rendering services on a full or part time basis as long as they have employer-employee relationship with the LGU and whose compensations are charged to the lump sum appropriation under Personnel Services; and those occupying DBM-approved contractual staffing pattern of the LGU.

ORMOC CITY Chilean ambassador to the Philippines Roberto Mayorga, in an interview today (Wednesday, December 4), said they would be rebuilding six schools in the city and the neighboring town of Kananga, in partnership with the Energy Development Corporation. He also gave his assurance that the schools they would rebuild would be better than it was before. The schools are those in Brgy. Linao, Dolores, Milagro and Tongonan in Ormoc City while the other two are Lim-ao and Tongonan, Kananga. The Chilean ambassador was also on his way to inspect the Ormoc Puericulture and Childrens Hospital, a 27-bed maternity and child facility that is run by a foundation. He said the Lopez-owned EDC is a major investor in Chile and they are here to partner with the company on its effort rebuild Ormoc and Kananga, where EDCs biggest geothermal plants are based. The Chilean ambassador, who preferred their visit to be low-key, was with volunteers of the group Desafio Levantimos Chile including singer Keko Yunge who is famous in their country. The group of volunteers has adopted the slogan Chile Gives Back for their Philippine effort. In an interview with Yunge and Aaskan Wohlt of Desafio Levantimos Chile, they made it clear that they would not only rebuild the schools but also adopt a longterm program for the benefit of its pupils. We also take care of the soul, said the singer Yunge. Its going to be a long-term commitment, he said. Aaskan Wohlt, on the other hand, said they are now assessing the schools damages and would be conferring with architects and engineers in their country to design roofs that can withstand more than 300kph. Concrete, maybe, or better materials. Maybe the design of the roof itself, he said. He added they might even source their materials from the United States where they also have partners. Wohlt said that what is definite is that their track record shows we dont just rebuild. We rebuild and make them better than before. Wohlt said their group Desafio Levantimos Chile was on the forefront of rebuilding efforts in their own country when an 8.8 earthquake hit it four years ago. Meanwhile, as his parting shot, Ambassador Mayorga said you Filipinos are easy to smile. You should never lose that .. the ability to smile even if a disaster had just gone by. It was a character trait they found pleasant that in their rounds of the schools they would rebuild, they would make the children say never give up as they leave. By Lalaine M. Jimenea

Rotary of Ormoc Bay, Butuan help Tacloban


ROTARY DISTRICT 3860 under the auspices of District Governor Ed Chiongbian of the Rotary Club of Cebu are set to fix school buildings in Ormoc and Tacloban that were badly ravaged by Typhoon Yolanda. In a meeting with the Rotary Club of Ormoc Bay on the afternoon of December 5, 2013, the governors emissary Stephen Bobong Castillo, also a Rotarian and owner of International Pharmaceuticals Inc. (IPI) based at Mandaue City, said that some 4,000 GI sheets were allocated by Chiongbian for Ormoc and 5,000 for Tacloban. Castillo was in the city with Jonathan Gesalim, who is also a Rotarian and the franchisee of Dunkin Donuts for the Visayas. Gesalim said he is also working on donating a water purifying unit for Tacloban which he sourced from Singapore. The GI sheets would be used to immediately put roofs on damaged schools to ensure that pupils are protected from the sun and rain. Classes resumed last December 2 yet, despite many schools have no roofs yet. Some classes are being held inside big tents which can be very hot and stuffy when the sun is out, it was noted. It was made clear, however, that the Rotarys role would stop at sheltering the kids from rain and the sun. The rest (total classroom restoration) is for government to do, Castillo said. In Ormoc City, the 4,000 GI sheets would be divided between the two Rotary Clubs. Some are expected to find their way to the Ormoc Puericulture and Childrens Hospital and pre-identified beneficiaries whose homes were totally damaged. In discussing the matter with the Rotary Club of Ormoc Bay, Castillo also informed the club that Chiongbian bought the 5,000 sheets from Butuan City and got it P 45.00 cheaper than the 4,000 sheets from Cebu. He was also happy to report that Butuan City has lent a truck to transport the sheets to Tacloban and that some 15 to 18 members of the Rotary Club of Butuan were coming with it, to help repair the roofs of the damaged schools. They are coming in with their own supplies, beddings and blankets, food, water, everything, he said, because they wouldnt want to impose on the Tacloban clubs. The contingent will have Spartan lodgings at the Sacred Heart School, and they were game for it. He noted that with the help of the Butuan City government and the P 45.00 difference in price, we saved around P 250,000 compared to that which we got from Cebu. Castillo also said that DG Chiongbian made it clear that the Rotary effort in Tacloban was a joint effort of the five Rotary Clubs in the city. The Rotary Club of Ormoc Bay is actively helping its Taclo-

LUCKY SCHOOL, LUCKY PUPILS . Classes resumed at Ormoc City on Monday, December 2. A lucky school is Linao ES which has a soup kitchen being run by the Rotary Club of Ormoc. The soup kitchen will go on until January or when funds are exhausted, says kitchen director Rotarian Beulah Coeli Fiel says. Meanwhile, the British NGO Shelter for Humanity has repaired the roofs of its schoolbuildings and the neighboring school at Naungan. The soup kitchen is funded by the Rotary District 3718 of Quezon City. Fiel, a former member of the RC Quezon City said that the soup kitchen started with a donation of kitchen equipment worth P 100,000.00 and which has a capacity of feeding 1,500 people at one time. RC District 3718 continues to fund its operations, even sending cook over to manage the various menu. Initially, the local Rotary Club fed the evacuees housed at the school and now, they are feeding the students. Their menu range from macaroni sopas, lomi and mushroom bread, mongo soup and many more.

Masculinity and feminity


IM AFRAID Im treading on dangerous ground here. Its a very delicate topic, especially nowadays when the sensitivity of a good number of people has grown thin and volatile. My previous forays into this topic has invariably elicited strong reactions, often leading to acrimonious and bitter discussions that deteriorated to ad hominems, complete with bitchy tones, and abandoning the objective aspects of the issue at hand. Its a pity because I always hold that no matter how different and conflicting our views are, or how wrong we feel the other party is, we are always bound to be together and obliged to love one another. Charity, we have to remember, is always above whatever differences and conflicts we may have among ourselves. We just have to sort out the differences, slowly, prudently and charitably, in the effort to arrive at the real and ultimate truth about certain matters that should be good for all of us. Certain truths are of an absolute and universal nature. Others can be open to opinions and preferences. What provoked this particular column was the news item about a recent study done somewhere abroad that concluded that the brains of men and women are hardwired differently. Thus, it says, men are found with greater spatial skills, while women with greater verbal skills. Since Im no expert in this field, I leave the technical analysis of this study to those who are better equipped and trained to assess the details. The study, by the way, is still in the pioneering stage, and so it is still in need of review and critique by respective peers, experts and professional scientists. Offhand, what I can say is that it merely reinforces the obviousthat a human person is either male or female, with differences not only in genitals, hormonal make-up, body structure, etc., but also in character, temperament, ways, manners, etc. That much, the Bible already told us since time immemorial. God created man to his image. To the image of God he created him, male and female he created them. (Gen 1,27) The passage tells us that both man and woman have been created in Gods image, and are therefore equal but different from each other. We need to emphasize both the fundamental equality and difference between the two so we can always be true to our nature. The difference is meant to generate the dynamics of complementarity, not isolationism and self-centeredness, so as to attain and maintain the ideal of equality and mutual growth and development. We should always reinforce this difference, but orienting it towards complementarity. But we should also remember that the basic equality is not meant to erase the difference between the two such that we may think that the ideal human person is neither male nor female, or that the ideal human person is both at the same time male and female. This latter thinking now seems to be verified when a news item reported that a good number

I was forwarded this text: Hi ___, lemme share my observation dito sa neighbor kong mayor. The mayors house already have light 3 weeks after typhoon so as (councilor) Tony Codillas residence pati Yakal Construction may lights na rin but the rest of us here in Fatima walang ilaw. Buti pa yong isang neighbor namin na may generator, she shares the electricity by allowing our neighbors to charge emergency lights and celfon free of charge. Iba talaga ang mga Codillas. Laging nangunguna sa lahat. Una nagkaroon ng kuryente. Sila muna bago ang lahat. Well, in fairness to the mayor, I think he has his own transformer. Leyeco V are prioritizing private entities with their own transformers. So de malas lang mo, wala mo transformer, bwahahaha. I also would like to appreciate the generosity of the Mayor and his company, Yakal Construction. While in Tacloban on Saturday, November 28, we met on the road somewhere at Sagkahan two Our Lady of Fatima trucks of Yakal Construction being used in the relief effort there.

Our bureaucracy making shambles of World Aid


AS AN offshoot of recent super typhoon Yolanda last 8 Nov 2013, the world (of about 14 nations) came to our rescue in the vicinity of about $50B. Fine! The only hitch is the government, both national and local, was unprepared for such a huge undertaking. There was talk the donor-countries balked at being taxed for their magnanimity. There was talk that the local government units (LGU), particularly the Mayors, insisted in making a listing of the recipients before giving them out. As a result, most of the foodstuff were spoiled and unfit for human consumption. They were rotting in the bodegas. Goodness gracious! Why did this happen? Why did all this food go to waste? It is unbelievable! Here we have people starving and we are throwing away the very food that was intended for them. Something is wrong. Some people must be crazy or they have rocks in their heads. This corner can safely say they are lunatics to make people starve and throw away good food. So what if some of them are given more than others. So what if some of them have already received their rations. So what if some of them are repeaters. They should have given this food as fast as they came. The situation was in total disarray. There was no semblance of order. The situation demanded a soft heart from the people tasked to render aid to the various victims who lost their loved ones, who lost their houses, who lost their bearings because of the magnitude ot the calamity. How many tons of food were thrown away, wasted? It makes this corner shudder. Those who had no compassion Ormoc. He added that they were actually targeting to help Tacloban City only but as fate would have it, your congresswoman was around and we think it was Buddhas will to include Ormoc. Lucy met the council in Manila to plead the case of Ormoc and the 4th district and that is why they decided to include Ormoc. However, they are sorry they could not include the rest of the 4th district of Leyte that Lucy so passionately asked for because of security concerns. After Lucy pleaded her case, it was now for them to do the actual work of assessing the victims actual situation. We dont work with politicians but youre lucky you have a congresswoman who convinced Master Shen with her sincerity. Your congresswoman is highly trusted, he said. for the plight of the masses should be made to answer for their indescrition. They should be fired outright! They have no business to be in the department tasked to help people. There was talk that the goodies in packs were repacked again by the DSWD. What for? To give the DSWD credit? What credit? In calamities of this magnitude, credit can go to the dogs. Who cares about credit? There is no more time for vanities. As it turned out, a lot of the goodies went to waste. What do you do with spoiled food? Thats right, throw it away. Can you beat that?! Here we are seeing people berserk and agogand yet we waste plenty of time in repacking the very items that have already been repacked and ready for distribution. Are we so umoving, so bereft of feelings, so calloused to understand the plight of our fellowmen? How about the story that our government was asking for donations from the world community by extending hands in supplication and yet these when donor-countries responded, were the very hands to ask them to pay tax on what they donated. Are we zombies? Are we crazy? Are we doomed to eternal fire? It was alright to list these donations so that we will know who to acknowledge after. This was a good idea. But for taxation purpose, it is foolish. Who will donate to us in the future? There is even talk that there will be other typhoons coming and much more deadlier than Yolanda. Heaven forbid! This corner was in the thick of Yolanda and to me, it is my fervent hope that it was the last one during my lifetime. The memory is all too scenic in my mind. Having to see another much more deadlier is all too much for me to bear. If at all, let it pass to another generation. The toll on lives lost keep mounting towards 6,000; not counting on cost of property which is now in the vicinity of $60B. (How much more if you include tax. Ugh!)

In Tacloban, the Tzu Chi Foundation are doing a cash for work program, encouraging residents to help cleanup the city. At the end of the day, they get P 500 each. Tzu Chi member Manuel Lee said there were questions why not only the minimum wage of P 260.00/day? Their stand in this regard is that they are not on the business of hiring people. They are in the business of helping people. And this is why they have to give those who are helping clean up Tacloban more than what is considered an ample days wage because it is not a salary but help in the form of an incentive. And to hasten Taclobans cleanup, they hired trucks at hefty rates to haul it to the dumpsite. Ive seen many dump trucks there with markings familiar to us here in Ormoc.

Again, on the Tzu Chi Foundations coming to Ormoc City. When they came here, it seems that there were groups claiming they were partners of the Foundation and that they were the ones approached to facilitate them. Manuel Lee (I have his cell number in case youd like to ask him yourself), a Rotarian, said that Tzu Chi works on its own. Like him who is a Rotarian, when he is with Tzu Chi, he is a member of Tzu Chi, not a member of Rotary. There were also Lions club members with them. Again, they cannot bring the Lions name into the relief effort because they are Tzu Chi. The only reason why they contacted people whom they knew in Ormoc, some of who belonged to civic clubs and probably mistakenly got the impression Tzu Chi would be working with them, was they needed people who knew

The exchange of hot words between Sen. Enrile and Sen. Santiago is just a lot of hot air. The nation can get nothing out of it. What is bad is because it will cost us money lost instead of benefiting us. Being elders, they should be models for the new generation of Senators and Congressmen. This particular Congress is their swan song. They will be a witness to the dropping of the curtain as they make their exit. No doubt about it, they gave color and prestige to

5 More sex/More money


speak to Mary, who is a virgin. As he inquired how she conceived Jesus without a father, Mary answered: Do you not know that God, when he created the wheat had no need of seed? And that God by his power made the trees grow without the help of rain? All that God had to do was to say, So be it, and it was done. The Quran has verses on the Annunciation, Visitation, and Nativity. Angels are pictured as accompanying the Blessed Mother and saying: Oh, Mary, God has chosen you and purified you, and elected you above all the women of the earth. In the 19th chapter of the Quran, there are 41 verses on Jesus and Mary. Mary, then, is for the Muslims the true Sayyida or Lady. The only possible serious rival to her in their creed would be Fatima, the daughter of Mohammed himself. But after the death of Fatima, Mohammed wrote: Thou shalt be the most blessed of all women in Paradise after Mary. In a variation of the text, Fatima is made to say, I surpass all the women, except Mary. Yet, there has been conflict. Muslims armies were stopped, at one point, outside the gates of Vienna. The Church throughout northern Africa was practically destroyed by Muslim power, and at the present hour, the Muslims are beginning to rise again. The author Hilarie Belloc once said: Islam is a heresy. Then, it is the only heresy that has never declined, Sheen says. Others have had a moment of vigor, then gone into doctrinal decay at the death of the leader, and finally evaporated in a vague social movement. Islam, on the contrary, has only had its first phase. There was never a time in which it declined, either in numbers, or in the devotion of its followers. The missionary effort of the Church toward this group has been, at least on the surface, a failure. At the present time, the hatred of the Muslim countries against the West is becoming a hatred against Christianity itself. A summoning of the Muslims to joint veneration of the Mother of God is promising, Sheen adds. Missionaries in the future will see that their apostolate will be successful in the measure that they show. Mary as the advent of Christ, bringing Christ to the people before Christ himself is born. In this endeavor, it is always best to start with that which people already accept. Many great missionaries in Africa have broken down the bitter hatred Muslims against the Christians through their acts of charity, their schools and hospitals. It now remains to use another approach, namely, that of taking the 41st chapter of the Quran and showing them that it was taken out of the Gospel of Luke, She remains our tainted natures solitary boast. FREDDIE AGUILAR of Anak fame is getting a lot of public attention lately because of his professed love for a 16 year old girl. This kind of media exposure works in two levels for him. The first is that the buzz makes people want to hear him again and equates to more money. The second is a demonstration of his virility. That behavior is not really uncommon. Reports have been replete of May-December affairs for males (older man- younger woman) and the so called cougars (mature woman) hooking up with young men. Theres really nothing wrong with either combination because age does not matter in love. A new study even suggests that lovemaking can earn you money and not just if youre engaged in the oldest profession. Employees that have sex more than four times a week receive 5% higher wages, according to research. Conversely, those who dont have any sexual activity earn 3% less in wages than those who are sexually active, the study in Germany concluded. Similarly, a Brazilian study found a positive correlation between sexual frequency and wages for Brazilian employees. This may be little more than a correlation, but based on these findings, it seems that sexual activity may be of interest to economists. Why the bigger paychecks? Sexually active people may exhibit more attributes that are prized in the workplace, experts say. They concluded that both sexual activity and higher wages convey a feeling of higher self-esteem and self-confidence, which attracts more sexual partners and more work opportunities. This also ties in with long-running theories that attractive people earn more money. In fact, so-called beautiful people are likely to earn 3% to 4% more than plainer folk, according to an economics professor. Another possible explanation for the connection is that those who are more sexually active may simply be in better shape emotionally and physically, which could make them more amiable, productive and creative employees. It is not really surprising if sexual activity is just one more indicator of general well-being. And increased sexual activity could be a key indicator of good health. Medical and psychological papers suggest that sexual activity is associated with good health, endurance, mental well-being, mental capacities and dietary habits. One downside, however, is that positive correlation between sex and higher wages could also work both ways. That is, higher wages may encourage some to adopt more sexually active lives because of the increased value and attractiveness of a person in the dating market. Some psychotherapists say theres a connection. The more success the individual experiences, the higher his libido rises; and less money could also mean less sex. And men are often more vulnerable especially those whose incomes have dramatically decreased because of the poor economy. They reported a significant decrease in their sexual desire and sexual activity. But going back to Ka Freddie. He is out to prove to all that as senior citizen, he still needs more love. He has also become a symbol for the geriatric generation that in his age he is not into a relationship for companionship alone.

Our solitary boast


THE ICONIC spiritual leaders of our time took decades of struggle and growth before they were formed into the universally recognized symbols that we know and love, writes Ambassador Akbar Ahmed. He chairs Islamic Studies at American University in Washington, DC . Mahatma Gandhi, Mother Teresa, the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., and Nelson Mandela are universally recognized examples. But Pope Francis is an exception, he adds. He comes to us, as it were, fully formed. In terms of his tenure as pope, he is in his infancy. And yet Francis seems to have hit his stride This marked in his reaching out to Muslims --and the shared reverence for Mary, the Mother of Jesus.. From his first foreign policy address in March, Francis made improving MuslimCatholic relations a top priority. Before ambassadors from 180 countries, he explained how he wanted to work for Muslims and Catholics to intensify dialogue. In September, he wrote to Ahmed al-Tayyeb, imam at University of Al-Azhar, founded a thousand years ago. He expressed esteem and respect for Islam and Muslims He hoped to improve understanding to build peace and justice. Positive shockwaves were sent into Muslim-Catholic circles, Ambassador Ahmed added. Muslim scholars and religious institutions around the world welcomed Pope Franciss election and his initiatives. In todays charged atmosphere of tension between Muslims and non-Muslims, isnt it prudent, let alone essential, to attempt to find common ground between these clashing Abrahamic traditions?, asks Heather Abraham who wrote the book: The Muslim Jesus ( 2001). There are many theological differences between Christianity and Islam. Marys shared importance, in both religions, can be understood as an opportunity for interfaith dialogue. Jesus has a unique place in the Quran, the holy book of Islam. There is an entire chapter dedicated to the Virgin Mary. Muslim poets Rumi and Hafiz wrote: I am a hole in a flute through which blows the breath of Christ. Listen to this music. This respect for the Nazarene and his Mother caught attention of many scholars. Islam is the only great post-Christian religion of the world, having had its origin in the 7th century under Mohammed,, the late Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen wrote. The Quran has many passages concerning the Blessed Virgin. The Quran believes in her Immaculate Conception, and Virgin Birth. Its third chapter places Marys family in a genealogy which goes back through Abraham, Noah, and Adam! The Quran passes over Joseph in the life of Mary. But the Muslim tradition knows his name and in this tradition, Joseph is made to

The Gospel on Sunday


DECEMBER 15, 2013 3rd Sunday of Advent Matthew 11:2-11 Now John had heard in prison what Christ was doing and he sent his disciples to ask him, Are you the one who is to come, or are we to expect someone else? Jesus answered, Go back and tell John what you hear and see; the blind see again, and the lame walk, those suffering from virulent skin-diseases are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised to life and the good news is proclaimed to the poor; and blessed is anyone who does not find me a cause of falling. As the men were leaving, Jesus began to talk to the people about John, What did you go out into the desert to see? A reed swaying in the breeze? No? Then what did you go out to see? A man wearing fine clothes? Look, those who wear fine clothes are to be found in palaces. Then what did you go out for? To see a prophet? Yes, I tell you, and much more than a prophet: he is the one of whom scripture says: Look, I am going to send my messenger in front of you to prepare your way before you. In truth I tell you, of all the children born to women, there has never been anyone greater than John the Baptist; yet the least in the kingdom of Heaven is greater than he.

Its as if they want to say, Go, figure This, for sure, is one of the signs of the times challenging us to find ways of how to handle this predicament. We need to be more aware now of our duty to reinforce in a more explicit way the masculinity and femininity of everyone, doing it rationally, prudently and charitably.

makes for manliness and what makes for womanliness should now be more articulated since a lot of confusion is descending on us these days. Nowadays we can see a lot of men who are effeminate, and also women who are mannish. And many times with their same-sex partners. We cannot ignore this development anymore. In more developed countries, the corresponding ideologies and systems are already forming and are exerting tremendous influence on the populace, especially the young and impressionable ones. Its clear that this issue cannot anymore be taken for granted. But for sure, the discussion and exchanges of views should be done properly. We need to be watchful with our words, tone and sense of timing.

months, he said, their sugar workers need food and income. As planters, they also need government intervention for access to financial help which they would use to repair damaged facilities and farm equipment, including vehicles and transloading stations. Fiel suggests that to do this, government must undertake a food/cash for work program for their farm workers. The funds, he said, can be sourced from the Social Amelioration Fund collected from them. He also appeals for government to impose price control on rice and other

basic commodities, and for the National Food Authority to continue selling rice in sufficient quantities at pre-Yolanda prices. There should also be a price freeze on all construction materials and other hardware, he said, to enable the people to re-construct their houses and create job opportunities for their workers. Furthermore, he said, government should allow the duty-free importation of farm equipment, fertilizers, spare parts and vehicles for use related to agriculture. Fiel also reiterated the call of many affected businessmen for the Bureau of Internal Revenue to be considerate and suspend tax audits and imposition of penalties and surcharges. The Ormoc-Kananga Milling District, Fiel said, may be small compared to known sugar bowls in the country but it is an industry in the area where many are dependent on. Data shows that the milling district has 8,502 hectares planted to sugar by 859 planters. Of the 859, only 34 are considered big planters with plantation areas of 50 hectares and above. 696 are small planting 10 hectares and below while 129 are medium with 10 hectares to 50 hectares.

BAYBAY ... from P. 1


the cost of the re-canvassing. I guess it should be Malot (the protestant) because she was the one who raised the question, the mayor said. Caris proclamation was annulled by the Comelec 1st Division when her opponent last elections, Ma. Lourdes V. Galenzoga, filed a protest questioning the composition of the city board of canvassers. Galenzogas camp claims that the CBOC composition was irregular. The mayor said they did not even have anything to do with composing the CBOC because it was constituted by the provincial Comelec. It was the provincial Comelec who appointed them, she said. However, in the Comelec ruling, only the second and third member of the board were impugned. The chairman remains as election officer Susan Collamar, who proclaimed Cari and the other winners after the May 2013 polls. The two new members are the Clerk of Court of the regional trial court in Baybay and a representative of the Department of Education. Cari added Galenzogas petition to proclaim a failure of elections in the city has already been dismissed by the Comelec for lack of basis. By Lalaine M. Jimenea

Despite plaintiffs effort to locate the defendant his whereabouts remained undetermined. Thus, together with the application for issuance of writ of preliminary attachment, plaintiff prayed for leave to serve summons to defendant by publication. Finding the said application in consonance with Section 1. Rule 57 of the Revised Rules of Court, the same is hereby GRANTED. The Court hereby orders the application to post a bond executed to the adverse party in double the value of the property as stated in witnesses affidavits subject to the approval of the Court.

R-ORM-12-00111-CV FOR: COLLECTION OF SUM OF MONEY PLUS DAMAGES AND ATTORNEYS FEES WITH PRAYER FOR ISSUANCE OF WRIT OF PRELIMINARY ATTACHMENT AMPARO S. KANGLEON, Plaintiff, -versusRODULFO R. ENAD, Defendant x----------------x COMPLAINT Plaintiff AMPARO S. KANGLEON, by and through undersigned counsel, unto this Honorable Court, most respectfully states that: 1. Plaintiff AMPARO S. KANGLEON is a Filipino, of legal age, widow, and a resident of and may be served with legal processes at Bonifacio St., Ormoc City while defendant RODULFO R. ENAD is a Filipino, of legal age, married, and with last known address at 2nd Floor ASK Building, Lopez Jaena St, Ormoc City. 2. Plaintiff AMPARO S. KANGLEON is the owner of the commercial building. ASK BLDG., located at Lopez Jaena St., Ormoc City while defendant RODULFO R. ENAD is the owner /proprietor of ARIANNE SURF INTERNET CAF. 3. On July 8, 2010, defendant RODULFO R. ENAD entered into a lease agreement with plaintiff AMPARO S. KANGLEON. The parties have agreed that defendant would lease a space in ASK Building for a period of one (1) year from July 9, 2010 to July 8, 2011 for a monthly rental of Eighteen Thousand (Php 18,000.00) Pesos plus 12% VAT less 5% withholding tax, payable in advance on or before the 1st week of each month. The defendant also agreed to pay One Hundred (Php 100.00) Pesos as monthly water bill. A copy of the Contract of Lease dated July 8, 2010 with Supplementary is hereto attached as Annex A. 4. The defendant was able to pay his monthly rentals and water bills from July 2010 until September 2010 in accordance with the Contract of Lease. But, on October 2010, the defendant started defaulting in his payment of his monthly rental and water bill. Plaintiff tried to demand payment, but the defendant pleaded for more time to pay his monthly rentals and water bills, and the plaintiff agreed. 5. Because of the failure of defendant to comply with his promise to pay his unpaid obligations, the plaintiff was constrained to send a demand letter to defendant urging him to settle his obligation which has already reached P341,320.00 as of February 2012, exclusive of the stipulated penalty of 3% a month. Copies of the demand letter and Registry Receipt No. 63 are hereto attached as Annexes B and C, respectively. However, despite repeated demands, the plaintiff still sailed to pay. 6. The plaintiff could no longer locate the defendant who has absconded, so that plaintiff was compelled to enforce the stipulation in the Contract of Lease, and entered the subject leased premises to effect repairs upon the property and take back actual possession thereof. An inventory of the properties found in the leased premises was made in the presence and with the assistance of the Barangay Secretary of Brgy. District 6, Teresita C. Lapa A. copy of the inventory duly signed at the bottom page by Barangay Secretary Teresita C. Lapa is hereto attached as Annex D, 7. As of May 2012, the total liability of defendant RODULFO R. ENAD has reached Four Hundred One Thousand Eight Hundred (Php401,800.00) pesos, exclusive of the stipulated penalty of 3% a month. 8. Plaintiff seeks to collect the long overdue rentals from defendant RODULFO R. ENAD, but the whereabouts of the defendant remains unknown to plaintiff. The defendant is evidently in bad faith when he unjustly refused to pay the monthly rentals and water bills, falsely promising that he would pay, and then subsequently leaving and abandoning the leased premises without informing the plaintiff, to the damage and prejudice of said plaintiff. 9. To file this case and collect the amount due from defendant, the plaintiff is filing this case and engaged the services of undersigned counsel for a professional fee of Php 50,000.00 plus Php 2,000.00 per appearance of counsel, APPLICATION FOR ISSUANCE OF WRIT OF PRELIMINARY ATTACHMENT 10. The plaintiff reiterates the preceding allegation insofar as they are material to the application for issuance of writ of preliminary attachment. 11. The defendant is guilty of fraud in the performance of his obligation in falsely promising to pay his overdue rentals and water bills and subsequently absconding and abandoning the leased premises without informing the plaintiff, to the damage and prejudice of said plaintiff. 12. There are no other sufficient security for the claim sought to be enforced by this action, and the plaintiff is willing to post a bond in such amount as this Honorable Court may fix conditional on the payment of damages which defendant may suffer if it later turns out that the plaintiff is not entitled to be issued a writ of preliminary attachment.

Leyte vice-guv says SP back home


LEYTE VICE governor Atty. Carlo P. Loreto announced that they had resumed holding their legislative sessions at their old office just beside the Capitol in Tacloban City, one of the areas flooded by the storm surge that happened on November 8, 2013, at the height of Typhoon Yolanda. The Sangguniang Panlalawigan holds its regular sessions every Tuesday at 4:00 PM. After Yolanda, the provincial board transferred its venue to Palo, Leyte while the legislative building was being cleaned for debris and flotsam. Vice Gov. Loreto said that on Tuesday, the SP members and employees started their day with a mass at 10:00 AM. Then, they held their session at 2:00 PM, earlier than the usual 4:00 PM since power has not yet been fully restored in the province and the board members have to go home after. At the SP building, the vice-governor said, they are now back home. Meanwhile, the death toll in Eastern Visayas has risen to 5,328 as of December 1, while 1,729 are reported missing. Recorded injured during the typhoon are 25,334 people. By Lalaine M. Jimenea

Management, documentation of missing persons placed under PNP


TACLOBAN CITY The management of missing persons due to super typhoon Yolanda has been placed under the jurisdiction of the Philippine National Police. Regional Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council of Eastern Visayas chairperson Rey Gozon informed the Philippine Information Agency that the police record would serve as the official document for the missing persons. He therefore called on families with missing members to report the same to the local police stations for proper documentation. He also requested the PIA to widely disseminate the information so that the concerned families will be properly informed. The National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) through the Office of Civil Defense (OCD) as per the recommendation of the LGU shall Issue Certificates of Missing Person Believed to be Dead during Disaster. It may be recalled that Typhoon Yolanda Regional Task Force reported that as of 5:00 oclock in the afternoon of November 30, about 5,328 individuals were reported dead, while 1,729 have been reported to be still missing.
