Never Again! Never Forget!

Why does it matter?  Can't we move on? There is a thin line between moving forward and forgetting. The occurrence of collective amnesia did not happen only by mistake or overnight. Correctly remembering what happened during Martial Law is important, especially amidst ongoing conversations that attempt to revise history. While others have made attempts through social media platforms to cement the Martial Law's place in our cultural memory, we have a clear social responsibility to be accountable for our actions and be conscious of its impact on others and in our communities. Truths are learned to be remembered and not to be forgotten. There is nothing wrong with forgiving and moving forward, but what makes things hard to digest is when accountability is neglected. In that case, chances are, Filipinos will find it hard to value, defend, and promote our freedom. To be reminded to #NeverForget does not necessarily mean holding a grudge until our very last breath. It will

DTI to entrepreneurs: Register your online business

NEGROS OCCIDENTAL, July 7 (PIA) --The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) here is urging online sellers to register their business.

Negros Occidental DTI Chief of Industry Division Engiemar Tupas said the call of the government is intended to protect sellers and give the business a legal personality.

The call to register, however, is only for those online entrepreneurs, who intend to build an online business with an intention to derive income from it. It is not for people who engage in online selling only during the pandemic, he explained.

It is not also for the purpose of chasing online sellers so that they should not be afraid, he added.

Tupas said both sellers and consumers go to the DTI office for help in case something goes wrong in their online transactions, anyway.

He cited an online customer who was duped of P60,000 worth of undelivered products with the online seller nowhere to be found for lack of information and contact details.

To register, an applicant only needs any government issued identification card such as driver’s license, voter’s ID, Professional Regulatory Commission ID, Postal ID and others.

DTI Registration fee is only P230 which is already good for five years and can be released as fast as 15 minutes, he said.

Although there is a penalty if one is caught doing business without being registered, he said, they are not looking at that scenario for now.

He said a registered online seller or any entrepreneur can apply in the Barangay Micro Business Enterprise (BMBE) that exempts them from paying a minimum wage to their employees. BMBEs are those business ventures with a capital of less than P3 million.

Tupas said having a registered business entitles the owner to avail of government assistance programs such as free training and seminars, technical consultancies as well as financial assistance.

He said sari-sari store owners have registered with the DTI and even ambulant vendors because of the benefits they can avail.

In the event that their registered business ceases for some reasons, the owner can apply for an affidavit to close registration.

He said this cancels the business name in the DTI registry system and the cancellation certificate can be submitted to the Bureau of Internal Revenue and the Local Government Unit. (JSC/Lljr/PIA6 Negros Occidental)

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. ✌️

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.

'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.
