Angat Bayanihan Meeting Registration

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

Recycling Industry backs Senate Bill on Waste-to-Energy

QUEZON CITY, July 6  (PIA) --  The National Solid Waste Management Commission-Recycling Industry Sector (NSWMC-RIS) supports the proposed Waste to Energy Act, which provides a framework for the entire value chain of waste to energy facilities and ensure uninterrupted supply of waste as feedstock.

Senator Sherwin Gatchalian, the chairperson of the Senate Committee on Energy, opined in a statement that waste hierarchy of 'reduce, reuse, recycle' (3Rs) is a failure.

"The 3Rs is a failure, yung reuse, reduce, recycle because only 30% of the barangays conduct 3Rs, 70% ay tinatapon lang sa kung saan-saan," he said.

He stressed that it is now the time for the government to consider the adoption of WTE facilities in the treatment and disposal of solid waste.

In a position paper submitted by the RIS, the members noted that only 30% of the country’s population has access to sanitary landfills and these facilities will soon be filled with waste.

"With only 30% of our population with access to Sanitary Landfills (SLFs) as the only final disposal option under RA 9003 based on 2015 data adopted by NSWMC, having not enough facilities being put up to meet the demand, and existing SLF facilities close to filling up,” RIS said.

As a consequence, RIS also noted the gap to address the shortage of landfill spaces.

“The proposed bill will allow for the much needed, appropriate, and environmentally compliant private sector investment in waste treatment technologies to fill the gap and eventually lead to the final closure and [stop] recurrence of open and controlled dumpsite facilities,"  RIS said.

Gatchalian believes that the immediate passage of the WTE Act will not only encourage the development of new technologies in the treatment and disposal of solid waste, it also supports the expansion of bioenergy to attain sustainable energy.

WTE facility refers to any processing facility that utilizes environmentally sound WTE technology that undergoes the process of generating energy in the form of electricity and/or heat from the primary treatment of waste, or the processing of waste into a fuel source, including biofuel plants and biogas producing sanitary landfill.

Incineration of waste might seem to be a bulletproof solution to address increasing wastes, but RIS noted that this can still be studied further to maximize the benefits of the co-existence of recycling and incineration.

RIS also clarified that referring to "incineration" as the burning of municipal, biomedical, and hazardous wastes which emits toxic and poisonous fumes is inaccurate. It is assumed here that incineration facilities automatically emit toxic and poisonous fumes which, in fact, it is the installed emission control equipment that determines it.

The RIS also suggested including the provision for tax incentives for WTE developers in the bill.

“WTE developers be provided with tax incentives [but] it should be clearly spelled out rather than going around different government agencies to apply for the appropriate incentive which oftentimes results in differences in interpretations and delays,” RIS suggested. 

Meanwhile, several private sector entities have conducted full-scale feasibility and investment studies for potential projects with Local Government Units on converting solid waste to energy in the country," said RIS.         (MCG/PIA-IDPD, with additional information from RIS/CL)

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. Pero all of you still chose to be fooled and deceived by them. But it's too late na eh nakaupo na sila sa pwesto na hindi nila deserve. Pero ito na lang... Let our response be, GINUSTO NIYO 'YAN!
