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.

Digitalization of tourism industry pushed amid 'new normal'

CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY, July 16 (PIA) – In its “#TravelSmart: Safe and Sustainable Tourism in the New Normal" web forum, the Department of Tourism (DOT) in collaboration with PLDT/Smart communications tackled the changing travel landscape and the role of digitalization in the tourism sector in the face of the new normal.

The webinar provided a quick review of the challenges being faced with by the tourism industry and presented digital tools for the public and private sectors to use in the midst of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic in the country.

“It is time to part our curtain of gloom that has been plaguing our country. We should move forward in promoting tourism again," Smart Communications president Al S. Panlilio shared in his opening statement.

The country’s tourism industry, which was experiencing an all-time high especially in domestic tourism expenditure in the past couple of years and contributing to the country’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) by 12.7 percent (P 2.48 Trillion) in 2019 underwent a huge dent in its performance at the start of the first quarter of 2020 as a consequence of COVID-19 disrupting travel conventions worldwide, leaving many Filipinos out of job due to closure of some businesses.

In response to this, the DOT braces for rehabilitating and developing a resilient tourism industry through digitalization and leveraging on technologyies as a means to further enact health safety protocols without compromising comfort that is consistent with global health practices of the World Head Organization (WHO) and the Department of Health (DOH).

To bolster the capabilities of domestic tourism businesses to adapt to the new normal, the DOT has also partnered with the Board of Investments (BOI) to let businesses avail themselves of incentives to upgrade facilities to conform to the health standards. 

“There’s no turning back to the digital tide that the pandemic has swept in. Together, we can all recover as one,” Tourism Secretary Bernadette Romulo-Puyat remarked. (VPSBautista/PIA10)

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!
