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.

Borongan City employees plant trees on Arbor Day

BORONGAN CITY, August 5 (PIA) - - A total of 156 participants most of them employees of Borongan City led by City Mayor Jose Ivan Dayan C. Agda, Vice-Mayor Emmanuel T. Tiu Sonco and Sangguniang Panglungsod Members  planted trees on Arbor Day, July 30, 2020 at Sitio Cagsawa, Brgy. Cabalagnan, Borongan City.

According to Vicky Mae C. Gavilan, environmental management specialist II of the City Environment and Natural Resources Office (CENRO) close to 3,000 Narra trees and 2,000 more fruit bearing trees were planted.

“The city employees hiked the uphill planting area, undeterred by the muddy elevation,” Gavilan said.

During the planting of trees, the participants were also advised to observe health protocols such as:  wearing of face masks and maintaining  social distance.

“I thank Mayor Agda for being supportive.  I did not expect that he would join the team, until reaching the elevated planting area,” the CENRO officer said.

The area consists of four project sites which are the area on assisted natural regeneration (ANR).  The four projects are: reforestation project, city tree-park, wildlife rescue project, and agro-forestry projects.

Other local officials and national agencies that joined the tree planting are:  Sangguniang Kabataan Officials and Brgy. Councils of Canyupay and Cabalagnan, DENR-CENRO, Philippine Army, PNP, Coast Guard, BFP, BJMP, CDRRMO, DTI, and DPWH.

The private organizations that also joined the tree planting  are the  LGBTQ team and local bikers who were greeted with an 800-meter hike from the main road which offered great views of the verdant hills of Borongan and Maydolong.

Arbor Day celebration is provided in the approved Ordinance No. 119, series of 2015 which mandates the city-wide tree planting aimed in restoring the forest cover to mitigate the impact of green-house effect.  (nbq/SDC/PIA-E. Samar with reports from Borongan City Information Office)

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!
