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.

ASEAN Centre for Biodiversity bats for resilience, recovery amid  ASEAN 53rd year

CALOOCAN CITY, Aug. 11 (PIA) -- The ASEAN Centre for Biodiversity (ACB) over the weekend joined the celebrations of the 53rd founding anniversary of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), and pushed for the robust and enduring cooperation of the Member States in building resilience and working towards recovery amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

“The ACB reaffirms its commitment to the Region’s principles and vision through its continued support to the AMS [ASEAN Member States] in advancing the Region’s biodiversity agenda in consideration of the COVID-19 pandemic and its immediate and long-term consequences,” ACB Executive Director Theresa Mundita Lim told the PIA-NCR.

Lim emphasized the urgency of building more robust health systems and economic structures and integrating biodiversity concerns into health and socio-economic programmes amid the ongoing global health crisis.

“Clearly, ensuring intersectoral cohesion will not only guarantee the sustainable use of our rich biological resources, but will also redound to our well-being and survival and contribute to national and regional economic recovery, as well,” she said.

The official shared that the ACB, through the ASEAN Heritage Parks Programme, a flagship initiative of the ASEAN, is mobilising necessary support to help maintain the quality of biodiversity attractions in AHPs during this crisis in preparation for the gradual re-opening of tourism.

The ACB executive director likewise commended Viet Nam’s leadership of the ASEAN, particularly in advancing cooperation on environmental protection and biodiversity conservation.

Last month, Viet Nam, led by Nature and Biodiversity Conservation Agency and Viet Nam Environment Administration, initiated a national consultation workshop on the post-2020 global biodiversity framework to flesh out inputs and insights on realigning their national biodiversity goals with the global targets.

“This initiative is valuable as the ASEAN lends a strong voice to the development of the landmark biodiversity framework so that it may reflect the context and challenges that the ASEAN is facing in reversing biodiversity loss, tackling outbreaks such as COVID-19, and responding to the climate emergency,” she said.

An online celebration was held to commemorate ASEAN’s foundation. Secretary-General of ASEAN, Dato Lim Jock Hoi, Indonesian Foreign Minister Retno Marsudi, and Viet Nam’s Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Pham Binh Minh graced the ceremony organised by the ASEAN Secretariat.

In the Philippines where the ACB is headquartered, the Department of Foreign Affairs held a virtual ASEAN flag-raising ceremony. Philippine Foreign Secretary Teodoro Locsin, Jr. talked about the ASEAN’s response in building back through support for micro, small and medium enterprises, which account for most jobs in the region.

“Commemorations invite reflection and reconsideration. Here’s a chance to recalibrate programs and activities in the face of new threats and challenges, and the extreme likelihood of their regionally destructive recurrence,” Locsin said. (PIA NCR)

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.

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.

Ginusto Niyo 'Yan!

'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!
