DOE to unveil 15 areas for oil and gas exploration

The Department of Energy (DOE) is set to unveil the 15 areas up for exploration for oil and gas through the Fourth Philippine Energy Contracting Round (PECR 4). The formal launch of the contracting round on June 30, 2011 will comprise of three onshore and 12 offshore blocks with a total area of more than ten million hectares located in Northwest Palawan, East Palawan, and Sulu Sea basins. This year’s contracting round will be the biggest yet offered by the Philippines. The contracting round is expected to attract investments in oil and gas exploration activities which will contribute to the realization of the country’s energy self-sufficiency level target of 60 percent by 2011. The PECR 4 is envisioned to address the country’s energy supply through the exploration of local indigenous resources. Harnessing local resources will help the country meet its daily demand and reduce the importation of petroleum and petroleum products. Independent and large-scale international exploration compa

DOST to design and deploy water hyacinth harvester in July

Scientists and engineers at the Department of Science and Technology are in a race to diffuse tangles of water hyacinth clogging freshwater bodies in the country. “We are looking at the water hyacinth problem in two ways: how to remove it and how to use it,” DOST Secretary Mario G. Montejo said. “We are validating the many potential uses of water hyacinth and see what are the most appropriate options at the municipal and industrial levels”, he added. “Do we use it for handicraft or as material for biogas or garments production?” But the DOST’s immediate mission order from Malacañang is to help de-clog major river systems like the Rio Grande de Mindanao, which swamped villages along its banks and portions of Cotabato City because of massive swarms of water hyacinth. This would require a far more efficient mechanical de-clogging system than backhoes sitting on barges. “We expect to test a DOST-developed water hyacinth harvester within July,” possibly in the Manggahan section of the Pasig

Avoid wading in floodwaters to prevent Leptospirosis – DOH

Health Secretary Enrique Ona today advised the public not to wade in floodwaters but instead, to wear rubber boots when walking in flooded streets to avoid leptospirosis as the number of cases reported nationwide is increasing.   From January this year up to 21 May 2011, there were 454 cases reported and this figure is 74.6% higher compared to the same period last year (260 cases). There were 32 deaths recorded; last year, there were only 8.   “Leptospirosis is an infection commonly transmitted to humans from water that has been contaminated by animal urine (usually rats), and comes in contact with lesion in the skin, eyes, or with the mucous membranes,” the health chief explained. He added that the best defense against leptospirosis is not to wade in floodwaterand to wear protective boots, if wading is necessary or cannot be prevented.   Most of cases came from Western Visayas (131 cases), Bicol Region (51), and Central Luzon (50). Ages of cases ranged from one month to 69 years. Majo

DOH: Wash your hands frequently to prevent diseases

Health Secretary Enrique T. Ona yesterday urged evacuees at the Notre Dame Village Elementary School in Cotabato City to frequently wash their hands and boil their drinking water or add chlorine tablets to prevent water-borne diseases at their evacuation sites. Ona, together with President Benigno Simeon Aquino III and Social Welfare Secretary Corazon Dinky Soliman, distributed relief goods to families devastated by floods due to typhoon Egay. According to the health chief, the most common diseases seen at the evacuation camps were cough and colds because the people were exposed to the cold weather living only in makeshift tents. He also asked evacuees to wash their hands before eating and after using the toilet to prevent the spread of diseases. Ona added that a measles and rubella vaccination is being done by regional health workers among all evacuees aged up to below 15 years. In addition to assorted medicines and relief goods, the Department of Health also distributed water contain

Passport processing operations normalized

The Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) anounced that the Office of Consular Affairs’ (OCA) electronic passport (e-Passport) operations have normalized as previous operational concerns have been addressed. “This is a very welcome development as we continue to work hard to improve services in our Regional Consular Offices (RCOs) and Foreign Service Posts (FSPs),” said DFA Assistant Secretary for Consular Affairs Jaime Victor B. Ledda. The DFA continues to reduce the turnaround time for applications filed in RCOs and Philippine embassies and consulate generals with the aim of providing world-class consular services to Filipinos anywhere in the country and all over the world. Other measures have also been implemented to address the backlog of passports, including the increasing of passport appointment slots to 5,000 everyday, extension of passport appointment hours from 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and Saturday processing from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and extension of validity of passports that

Aquino announces proposal for new nautical highway

President Benigno S. Aquino III announced that a proposal to construct a new nautical highway traversing the islands of Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao is being studied to assess its viability and impact on the environment. The Chief Executive made the announcement in his speech keynoting the inauguration of the 200-megawatt coal fired power plant of the Korean Electric Power Corporation (KEPCO) on Monday here. “There are ongoing studies that will make the nautical highway even more efficient. They will practically cut by a third the travel time it would take to travel from Luzon to Mindanao once it is accomplished,” the President said. He added that instead of traversing the “outer perimeter” of the country, the proposed nautical highway will pass through the country’s middle area or “spine” to cut travel time. “And of course Cebu will be at the lynch pin of this nautical highway which will traverse the inner portion of the country as opposed to the current outside perimeter that has to b

Pinoy Biggest Loser Trainers Chinggay Andrada and Jim Saret switch teams

The Blue Team is down to five members after letting go of Edden Cruz in another dramatic elimination ceremony on “The Biggest Loser Pinoy Edition” yesterday (June 27). The 35-year old market vendor from Cebu followed teammate JM Oloris and Red Team’s Destiny Duarte outside the Biggest Loser camp after getting the most votes from her teammates. Trainer Jim Saret’s team absorbed its second straight loss in the weighing scales after failing to capitalize on a reward they got in last week’s challenge. The Blue Team chose a member of the Red Team to sit out during the weigh-in and not be able to contribute to the total weight loss of their group. They chose Eboy and though his 14 lbs. weight loss wasn’t credited to his team, the Red Team still delivered 2.42 percent total weight loss, higher than Blue Team’s 2.37 percent. Adding fuel to the fire was Eboy being proclaimed the Biggest Loser of the week after shedding 3.25 percent of his previous weight, the highest among all contestants this

Emma Watson bids farewell to Hermione in Deathly Hallows - Part 2

She first played Hermione in the  Harry Potter film series at age nine. Eleven years and eight movies later, with the final one,  Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2 showing in July, Emma Watson is ready to close that chapter in her life. Or is she? Find out in the following interview.   Question: How are you feeling now that the films are coming to a close? Are you nostalgic? Emma Watson: That question never gets clearer or easier really to answer. It's hard for me to answer because I still don't really know how I feel about it. I'm still processing it. So, to give you an answer is actually quite hard. I have days where I feel relieved and I have days where I feel very sad. And I have days where I'm like, 'I'm so excited.' Because this just took up my life, all of my time; my life revolved around Harry Potter. That was the focal point of my existence. And it's exciting now that I have this time, I can accept other things. I mean, I know the gr
