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.

TESDA chief launches skills training programs in DavOr, DavNor

DAVAO DEL NORTE (PIA) - Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) Director-General Secretary Isidro Lapeña  made a vigorous swing of visits on July 22 in various sites of Davao Oriental and in Davao del Norte to personally launch skills training programs benefiting former rebels and an area influenced by communist group of New Peoples Army (NPA).

Together with provincial heads of offices,  Provincial Governor Danilo Dayanghirang of Davao Oriental and Provincial Governor Edwin Jubahib of Davao del Norte accommodated Lapeña’s sortie, boosting his messages of government’s commitment to service delivery.

He made his first stop in Brgy Maragatas in the Municipality of Lupon in Davao Oriental where he launched “Oplan Maragatas” which pooled together the services of the provincial government and national agencies especially those in the circle of the Poverty Reduction Livelihood and Employment Cluster (PRLEC).

Among the services were medical consultation, provision of poultry chicken, cacao and coffee seedlings including planting materials, plastic drums for mango growers, tilapia fingerlings; distribution of PWD identification cards; pre-identification and presentation of microenterprise projects for qualified proponents; as well as a Consultation Forum on Project Identification.

Lapeña assured Brgy Maragatas residents that a TESDA Productivity Center will soon rise in their area, offering a menu of skills training programs they want to lead them to a livelihood and employment they want to pursue.

Barangay Maragatas is identified as a priority area of the Provincial Task Force on ELCAC as the communist terrorist group (CTG) still has perpetuated its influence in the area though it has been substantially weakened by government forces with the recent death of an NPA leader in an encounter.

Lapeña then met with residents of Happy Home, a halfway house for former rebels “deradicalized” to live a new life fully supported by the Provincial and the national governments.  TESDA is among the key agencies providing former rebels economic and livelihood capacities through training.

At the Happy Home, Lapeña turned over livelihood starter kits with additional financial incentives to former rebels.

He then swung his visit to San Isidro Davao Oriental where he was met by Municipal Mayor Tina Yu who expressed optimism that the Integrated Organic Farming System of TESDA would beef up productivity of her constituents.

In San Isidro, Lapeña emphasized to training recipients the need to go through the program with depth of interest and drive to complete the sessions. He also made them understand that success in pursuing a livelihood and employment, starts with Training.

Lapeña ended his long whole-day  project launch sorties at the Freedom Residences in Tagum City, Davao del Norte where he had an audience with about 70 former rebels trained by TESDA with the Department of Trade and Industry among other agencies, on Mushroom production and processing and Meat-Vegetable-Fruit processing.

During his talks on-site program launch venues, he emphasized TESDA’s support to provincial governments to bring government services to where  and to whom they are most needed.  He also said that his presence is a manifestation of the national government’s commitment.  (Jeanevive Duron Abangan, PIA XI)

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.
