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.

DA interventions help Silang ornamental plant growers, farmers

SILANG, Cavite Jul 20 (PIA) -- The Department of Agriculture IV-A (CALABARZON) continue to help farmers affected by the Taal Volcano eruption in early January of this year in the region including the Silang ornamental plant growers.

Under its Taal Recovery and Rehabilitation Program, the DA distributed black nets and UV plastic to 401 members of the Federation of Silang Ornamental Growers July 14, 2020.

Silang Municipal Agriculture Office (MAO) head Adela V. Poblete led the distribution of interventions as part of the ongoing utilization of the Quick Response Fund of the DA to help revive the livelihood of the farmer beneficiaries.

"This is a great help for the booming ornamental industry in the municipality of Silang," Ms. Poblete said.

Mr. Anselmo Noveno, an ornamental plant grower in the town was so grateful for the interventions by the DA.

"Noon pa man ay tumutulong na ang DA sa mga ornamental plant growers, lalo na noong naapektuhan kami ng pagputok ng bulkan. Nagagalak po kami na yang mga natanggap naming plastic, seedlings, at organic fertilizers ay nadagdagan pa. Malaking tulong po ito sa aming pamilya lalo na nga na nasa quarantine period pa rin po tayo," he shared.

(The DA has always been helping us ornamental plant growers, especially when we were affected by the volcanic eruption. We are pleased that the plastic, seedlings, and organic fertilizers we received have increased. This is a big help to our family especially now that we are still in the quarantine period.)

A similar activity was held June 3, 2020 thru the initiative of Representative Dahlia Loyola. Farmers received 4,200 bags of agricultural lime, 800nbags of plant growth enhancer, 25,000 pieces of Liberica-Coffee, 6,000 pieces of Banana Tissue Culture, Assorted Cut Flower and vegetable seeds, 1,200 seeding trays, black net, and UV plastics.

Rep. Loyola highlighted the importance of local food production stating, 'that people need to be self-sufficient as the current pandemic caused disruption to the supply chain."

On the other hand, the DA's distribution of free vegetable seeds in support of its Plant, Plant, Plant Program that promotes urban gardening had helped not only farmers in the town but also private citizens like housewives, displaced employees from the community quarantine and other residents.

Lilibeth Pudadera, a housewife who received free vegetable seedlings said, "Thank you so much DA Calabarzon for the vegetable seeds you are continuously distributing. Kahit papaano ay nakakawala ng stress ang mag urban gardening lalo na ngayong pandemya at may aasahan pa kaming makakain, makalipas pa ang ilang araw. We will support Plant,Plant,Plant program all the way. May God bless us all."

(Urban gardening somehow relieves our stress especially now that there's a pandemic and we will have something to eat after a few days.)

Aside from mentioned interventions, farmers can also avail of crop loans under the SURE-AID credit loan by the Philippine Crop Insurance Corp. (CIC), free cocoa seedlings with training for cocoa farming, and other planting materials.

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.

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.

Ginusto Niyo 'Yan!

'Di kami nagkamali, we already expected those things to happen... You're making fun of our opinions pero 'di niyo magets na para 'yun sa ikabubuti ng lahat. Now, why so sudden bigla kayong nagreklamo? eh diba ginusto niyo 'yan, honestly dito samin nagsasabing nagsisisi sila sa naboto nila, for me hindi na kasalanan ng mga politiko na naloko nila kayo dahil there are so many evidences na. Pero all of you still chose to be fooled and deceived by them. But it's too late na eh nakaupo na sila sa pwesto na hindi nila deserve. Pero ito na lang... Let our response be, GINUSTO NIYO 'YAN!
