Ngayong araw, nilulunsad namin ang #AngatBayanihan — ito ang ating VOLUNTEER PROGRAM sa Angat Buhay kung saan puwede kayong mag-ambag ng oras, talento, o kahit anong tulong para sa agarang pangangailangan ng ating mga kababayan.  Dito, puwede kang magsagawa ng iba’t ibang klase ng paglapit at pagtulong sa kapwa, lalo na para doon sa mga nakilala natin sa ating mga pag-iikot sa iba’t ibang parte ng Pilipinas.  Ilang halimbawa ng pagbabayanihan sa pamamagitan ng Angat Buhay ang agarang pagkilos ng volunteer groups sa Abra at Ilocos provinces na tumugon sa pangangailangan ng mga nasalanta ng lindol. Bago pa man iyan, nagsagawa rin ng relief operations ang ating magigiting na volunteers para sa apektado ng Banaue landslides. Nariyan din ang mga kabataan sa Maynila na magsasagawa ng kanilang medical mission sa komunidad. Nitong nakaraang Sabado, may individual volunteers na bumisita sa ating Community Learning Hub para magbigay ng mga libro para sa ating learners. Napakaraming p

DOST-MIRDC produces 200k face shields for donation to medical frontliners nationwide

Sample of Face Shields for Distribution to Regions

QUEZON CITY, July 9 (PIA) -- The Department of Science and Technology - Metals Industry Research and Development Center (DOST-MIRDC) targets to produce 200,000 pieces of face shields to support health care workers and frontliners in various sectors who are continually battling  COVID-19 in the country.

DOST-MIRDC Executive Director,  Engr. Robert O. Dizon said that the Center supports the need of  frontliners for personal protective equipment particularly face shields, thus they started its mass production in May 15.

The project was funded by the DOST-Philippine Council for Industry Energy and Emerging Technology Research and Development (DOST-PCIEERD)

The  DOST-MIRDC was using 3D printing to make 50 pieces of face shields a day through the 3D printing technologies housed in the Additive Manufacturing Center (AMCen)  when they saw the need to continually help the frontliners and mass produce the face shield.To be able to do this,  the Center shifted to plastic injection technology and ramped up production by up to 5,000 pieces of face shield frames per day.

The project was also carried out through the cooperation of Omnifab Inc. and Magasamsotite, the center’s partners. Omnifab Inc., is a 3D printing company that created the first mold’ while Megasamsotite, located at San Pedro Laguna, offered facilities for mass production.

The other mold for the face shield frames was created at the Die and Mold Solution Center (DMSC), a facility of the DOST-MIRDC.

DOST-MIRDC said that the distribution of face shields in different regions of the country will be coursed through the DOST Regional Office or directly to DOST Provincial Offices in coordination with local offices of the Department of Health (DOH), Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG), Philippine National Police (PNP) and other medical frontliners.

“We sent a letter to Usec. Brenda L. Nazareth-Manzano, DOST Undersecretary for Regional Operations, to inform all DOST regional and provincial offices about our project. All of them quickly responded and sent us their list of possible recipients. We fabricated additional molds to meet the required volume,” says Ms. Lina B. Afable, project leader and Chief of the Technology Diffusion Division of the DOST-MIRDC.

“Since we began the project on May 15, 2020, we have already donated a total of 105,000 pieces of face shields: 10,000 each to CAR, Regions I, II, III, IVB, V, VI, VIII, and XII; and 15,000 pieces of face shields to Region IVA,” said Ms. Afable.

DOST-MIRDC project team, assures to stays on top of production and to attain target project completion date on August 14, 2020.

In addition, the Center is also accommodating additional inquires for face shields on top of the scheduled donations to the regions. (JLB/ PIA-IDPD)

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. ✌️

'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.
