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.

Public urged to invest in BTr’s Progreso Bonds

ILOILO CITY, July 22 (PIA) -- State-owned Development Bank of the Philippines (DBP) is urging its depositors and the public to avail of the Bureau of Treasury’s (BTr) “Progreso Bonds” (Retail Treasury Bonds Tranche 24).

This is to help the government in raising funds for vital projects to combat the COVID-19 pandemic.

In a press release, DBP President and Chief Executive Officer Emmanuel G. Herbosa said for a minimum amount of P5,000, the public would have the chance to invest in a safe and higher-yielding instrument, which fetches an annual fixed interest rate of 2.625 percent, payable quarterly over the next five years.

“We urge the public to invest in RTB-24 as it will fund priority health initiatives to respond to and recover from the COVID-19 crisis as well as extend support to returning overseas Filipino workers and small and medium enterprises,” Herbosa said.

The “Progreso Bonds” is the 24th issuance under the RTB Program since its inception in 2001 and the second issuance of RTBs in 2020. It is a five-year government-issued debt security, especially designed for retail investors.

DBP along with Land Bank of the Philippines are joint lead issue managers with eight other financial firms as issue managers.  The government expects to raise a minimum of P30-billion from the latest bond offering, though it awarded more than P192-billion in RTBs in BTr’s auction last July 16.

Herbosa said the BTr would also allow holders of previously issued bonds, namely, RTB 10-01, FXTN 05-73, RTB 10-02, and FXTN 07-57 to exchange and reinvest their bond holdings for the RTB-24.

He said interested investors may purchase the bonds over the counter through any of the 129 branches of DBP as well as from those of participating financial institutions, a press release added.

DBP First Vice President for Corporate Finance Francis Nicolas M. Chua said DBP expects that investors’ appetite for Progreso Bonds will rise in the coming days as the BTr anticipates more orders during the offer period which will run from July 16 until August 7 of this year.

“The public can also purchase the Progreso Bonds through the RTB online ordering facility at the BTr website ( and via the BONDS.PH mobile application,” Chua said. (PIA6/With report from DBP)

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.
