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.

DSWD-7 initiates advocacy for 4Ps children

CECU CITY, July 21 (PIA) -- The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD-7) initiated an advocacy for the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps) children-beneficiaries in Central Visayas showcasing their creativity and artistry while in community quarantine

Dubbed as “Likha ng Bata, Para sa Bata”, the program is a platform where 4Ps children have shown their creative expression at the same time advocate on the safety and cooperation of everyone in recovering from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Seven children who are future visual artists used vivid colors and broad strokes in creating their masterpieces.

These children are Gian Christopher Sanchez of Daanbantayan, Justine Ronato of Alegria, March Karen Cabiso of Cordova, of Cebu province;Love Gwyneth Talaboc of Lazi,Siquijor; Mel Hingpit, Kristel Joy Arambala and Paula Nicole Jumuadof Batuan and Antequera, Bohol, respectively.

An incoming grade 7 student, March Karen explained that her artwork entitled “Pananampalataya: Liwanag ng Pag-asa sa Gitna ng Pandemya” highlights the image of Señor Santo Niño, an infant child Jesus, the magnet of love in Cebu.

“As the cradle of Christianity, we have strong faith that prayer is one enormous weapon to fight this unseen enemy coupled with adherence to the government’s health protocols like wearing mask, washing of hands, physical distancing and staying at home, we will be able to overcome this health crisis,” said March Karen.

Mel Hingpit’s artwork depicts unity and cooperation among humans and highlights the primary contribution of the frontliners including healthcare workers, the police force, military personnel, and social workers.

“Whoever you are in the society regardless of your status, age or position, you are accounted to do your part because the future lies in our hands. During crisis, the traditional Filipino values of helping one another such as doing some heroic deed, sacrificing one’s life for the good of everybody, prevails.This work of mine is a salute and a recognition to our dear frontliners who fervently serve as our heroes amidst this COVID-19 pandemic. Most importantly, our cooperation and support make us heroes in our own little ways,” said Mel.

Four children displayed their gift of gab through poem composition and storytelling, namely; Justine Jay Lanzadares of Talibon, Bohol; Mirasol Basallo of Daanbantayan, Cebu; Marianne Lontayao of Siquijor, Siquijor; and Nicka Berioso of Lazi, Siquijor.

Nicka composed a poem entitled “Pandemya nga wala damha” (Unexpected Pandemic) written in Filipino and Cebuano.

She said that her poem manifests how the government works to help those affected by the health crisis especially those in dire need.

Nasulat ko din sa tula na walang “forever” kasi hindi naman talaga magsi-stay ang COVID sa mundo dahil kusa itong titigil alinsunod sa gusto ng Diyos (I also indicated in my poem that there is no forever and for that reason COVID will not stay long because it depends on God’s will),” said Nicka.

Ten-years old Justine Jay said that he will continue to follow his dreams despite the recent situation because this is just a challenge of our time and it will not stay long just like waves in the seashore.

His poem is entitled “Kaugmaon Ko Batok Corona Virus Disease.”

As evidence that music is the universal language of mankind, 4Ps children effectively communicated their message across by creating songs that evoke emotions.

Francis Andrei Rosell of Daanbantayan presented his song “Kagaw sa Kalibutan” while siblings Jaymark and Jasmin Catubig of Samboan sang their mixed pop and rap “Covid Song.”

Nine children from Carmen, Bohol composed the song “Pagbangon” which they made into a music video.

According to Jaymark, they used their voices in showing the importance of resiliency, unity, and faith in God.

“The song tells us that we should be resilient and be proactive in our community in terms of following health protocols and sharing the right information to others. We should help each other so that we could lessen the burden of our frontliners who are also risking their lives for us,” added Jaymark.(HFG/PIA7 with report from DSWD)

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.
