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.

CALOOCAN CITY, July 21 (PIA) -- The government on Monday launched a website to help stop fake news from spreading by providing timely, accurate, and reliable information related to disasters that may severely affect the country, such as the coronavirus pandemic.

The new Laging Handa (Always Prepared) Unified Website, in its beta version, harmonizes all information from reliable and trusted sources and gives the general public easier access to the information.

The website is powered by the Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO), through its attached bureau, the Philippine Information Agency (PIA), in cooperation with the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT), and partner developer Dashboard Philippines.

"The Laging Handa Unified Website will provide accurate information in the time of COVID-19. This will fight fake news and disinformation that only foster panic in people,” PIA Director-General Ramon L. Cualoping III said in a report by the Philippine News Agency.

The website can be accessed via laginghanda.gov.ph, wehealasone.gov.ph, or covid19.gov.ph.

Cualoping emphasized the importance of having a unified message and a streamlined communication platform such as Laging Handa that may be referenced to debunk rumors and hoaxes about COVID-19.

“This is in line with our mandate as government communicators. We will Explain, Explain, Explain, until we kill the virus called fake news,” he said.

The website contains frequently asked questions (FAQs) regarding COVID-19.

One cool feature of the site is its “dark mode” or the light-on-dark color scheme that uses light-colored text, icons, and graphical user interface elements on a dark background.

It also features government resolutions, issuances, memorandum, and guidelines that are conveniently placed for easy access.

Moreover, it contains news, presidential briefings, and links to Laging Handa briefings, among others. (PIA NCR)

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.
