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.

Dgte records drop in dengue cases

DUMAGUETE CITY, July 21 (PIA) -- Dumaguete City Health Office has recorded a significant decrease in dengue cases from January to July 21, this year compared to the same period in 2019.

A total of 109 dengue cases were recorded here from January to July 21, 2020 while there were 453 cases logged in the same period in 2019. 

However, City Dengue Coordinator Leticia Flores said during the "Straight from the Source" Press Briefing today that despite the drop in dengue cases, barangay residents must not be complacent and households must continue to clean their surroundings.

As the rainy season has started, Mayor Felipe Antonio Remollo emphasized the need for frequent community outreach to educate the residents on how to keep their homes safe from dengue and the danger of COVID-19 transmission.

Provincial Health Coordinator Dr. Socrates Villamor of the Department of Health (DOH) advised the public to follow the department’s strategy on "Mag-4S Laban sa Dengue" which promotes a healthy and safe environment in communities.

The 4S program emphasizes the search and destroy of possible breeding sites of dengue-carrier mosquitoes; self-protection measures like wearing long-sleeves and sleeping pants or pajamas; and to seek early consultation if experiencing two to three days of fever; and support fogging only in hotspots where dengue cases are on the rise.

In the same activity, Assistant Provincial Health Officer and Incident Commander of Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF-EID) Dr. Liland Estacion said that local officials should also give importance to anti-dengue campaign so it would not add to the burden of fighting COVID-19. 

Estacion said despite the coronavirus crisis, local health workers should continue to campaign against dengue or educate barangay officials and residents to maintain the decrease of cases.

Dumaguete City tops the number of dengue cases in the list of cities and towns in Negros Oriental in the first semester.

For the same period this year, top five in the list include Dumaguete City with 109; Sibulan, 163; Bais City, 120; Guihulngan City, 91; and Siaton, 91.

Meanwhile, personnel from the City Health Office, Philippine National Police, City Disaster Risk Reduction Management Office (CDRRMO) and the Public Information Office (PIO) conducted house visitation and information drive in the barangays on the twin threats facing the city: dengue and COVID-19.

The team led by City Health Officer Dr. Ma. Sarah Talla checked on the health conditions especially of the children and elderly and distributed multi-vitamins and medicine following consultations.

Residents were asked to keep their homes and surrounding clean and free of potential breeding grounds for dengue-carrying mosquitoes.

They were also asked to practice physical distancing, wearing of face masks, and to wash their hands regularly.   (jct/PIA Negros Oriental)

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.
