Why are Filipinos known for their lack of reading comprehension?

Because according to most of them: "Well-mannered is better than well-educated" That's why most of the Filipinos never progress. It is because of the trash mindset.

ARTA sets deadline for revised Citizen’s Charter amid the COVID-19 pandemic

CALOOCAN CITY, July 20 (PIA) -- Government agencies that do not meet the July 25 deadline for the submission of the revised Citizen’s Charter may face charges for non-compliance of the RA 11032 or the Ease of Doing Business and Efficient Government Service Delivery Act of 2018.

Anti-Red Tape Authority (ARTA) Director-General Jeremiah Belgica reminded government agencies of the July 25 deadline and said the revised documents should also reflect the “new processes implemented” to keep the public safe amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

“For the looming July 25 deadline set for government agencies to submit their revised Citizen’s Charter, ARTA also requires that the new processes implemented and all other revisions on existing services that are being adopted in consideration of the declaration of a State of Public Health Emergency be reflected in their respective Citizen’s Charter,” Belgica said.

At the same time, ARTA urged public to demand for transparency and accountability in government service through the Citizen’s Charter.

To recall, the Citizen’s Charter is an official document that communicates, in simple terms, the information on the services provided by the government to its citizens.

“More than serving as a basis for the recognition of performance, the Citizen’s Charter shall be the basis for establishing accountability in the delivery of government service,” Belgica explained.

“Both said purpose are stated in the Implementing Rules and Regulations of R.A. 11032 or the Ease of Doing Business and Efficient Government Service Delivery Act of 201 which was signed a year ago,” he added.

“A Citizen’s Charter is akin to a menu in a restaurant. It is there that you can see what dishes are being served and how much. Likewise, a Citizen’s Charter is required of every government office big or small, because it reflects all the services being offered, fees to be paid, requirements needed to be submitted and most of all the processing times per services,” Belgica said.

“This must be posted in the most prominent place in the entrance of every office so the people may hold the agency to those standard as listed in the Citizen’s Charter. In short, the Citizen’s Charter is the agencies’ social contract with the people,” he added.

When transacting with government agencies, meanwhile, ARTA urges the public to look out for the following information on Citizen’s Charters:

  • A comprehensive and uniform checklist of requirement for each type of application or request;
  • A step-by-step procedure in obtaining a particular service;
  • Person/s responsible for each step;
  • Maximum time to conclude the process;
  • The document/s to be presented by you; and the
  • Amount of fees that you should pay and where the payment shall be made.

Lastly, the transacting public shall also be informed in the Citizen’s Charter with the procedure that they could undertake to file any complaints to the agency.

Moreover, Belgica urged the agencies to submit their Citizen’s Charter to the ARTA office through online submission at

The agencies’ charters submitted, however, would still be subject for review by the Compliance, Monitoring, and Evaluation Office (CMEO) of the Authority. (PIA NCR)

Bakit Uto-Uto ang mga Pulahan?

Yung tipong habang tumitingin ka sa feed mo may nakita kang nag-share ng mga conspiracy theory. Bakit ba naeenganyo sila? Paniwalang paniwala sila. Basahin ang maikling kasagutan tungkol dito. It makes them feel special and different. It gives them a feeling of being better than others, of having their eyes opened to a 'truth' that others don't see. That's why some call non-believers 'sheeple.' I think it's similar to the feeling we get whenever we learn an obscure yet interesting piece of trivia. The thought of "No one else knows it!" I also think conspiracies appeal to the way humans think, especially now. A desire to search for patterns. There has to be reason and purpose for anything. But this is not right! I still blame the lack of the fundamental research skills that needs to be taught in school. I believe you get to have a full subject on your 4th year, but investigative skills and fact checking should be honed at a young age.

Para sa mga Pulahan

Kung narito ka ngayon. Marahil ay isa ka sa mga napadpad o mas magandang sabihin ay isa ka sa marites na nakatambay sa page ng mga kakampinks. Kung tama ako, para sayo talaga to!  Para sa mga PULAHAN. Wala ba kayong page na nagmamahal sa inyo kaya andito kayo sa page ng mga kakampinks? :) Salamat pa rin sa pagdalaw kahit ang purpose niyo talaga ay ang ibash kami. ✌️

How To Make A Country Worship You

Hayaan mo lang na lumala ng lumala ang ekonomiya. Hayaan mo magutom ang mga tao. Hayaan mo silang magpatayan. Hanggang sa maupos na ng tuluyan ang pag asa nila na magkakaroon pa ng pagbabago. Hayaan mo silang abala sa mga libangan nila at may mahabang oras ka na manlinlang at malilinlang mo talaga sila. Gumawa ka ng maraming misdirections para akala nila informed sila. Sa kawalan nila ng pag-asa, hagisan mo ng tira tira. Hagisan mo ng latak ng sarili nilang pera. Hagisan mo ng katiting na awa. Hindi mo kailangan ayusin ang mga ng problema ng bansa. Kailangan mo lang palabasin na may ginagawa ka kahit wala.
