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.

DOH-10 cites benefits of using face shields, masks

CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY, Aug. 8 (PIA)--Following the mandate of the Department of Transportation (DOTr) on the use of face shields in addition to wearing of face masks while commuting effective Aug. 15, the Department of Health (DOH)-10 cites advantages of wearing such in preventing the spread of coronavirus disease (COVID)-19.

During the NorMin COVID-19 Response Task Force press conference, August 7, DOH-10 Regional Director Dr. Adriano Suba-an said the face shields were primarily considered as an option for a certain population, who needs to see facial expressions such as learners and the persons with disability particularly the deaf and mute.

"Face shields should not be used as a substitute for face masks. It should be the combination use of both," Suba-an added, citing that face shields are generally not used alone, but must be in conjunction with other protective equipment and are therefore classified as adjunctive personal protective equipment (PPE).

Based on studies, face shields are endlessly reusable and affordable, and they require simple cleaning with soap and water or common disinfectants. 

Also, shields are usually more comfortable to wear, and they form a barrier that keeps people from easily touching their own faces, which is one of the ways to prevent COVID-19 infection.

Suba-an said when using a face mask and face shield, one should ensure that the eyes, nose  and mouth are covered. There should be no exposed gap between the forehead and the shield's headpiece.

The use of a face shield is also a reminder to maintain social distancing, but allows visibility of facial expressions and lip movements, the regional director added.

In a Memorandum Circular released Aug. 4, the DOTr, through its Administrative Service, has ordered all officials and heads of its various transportation sectors to enjoin, within their respective jurisdictions, the mandatory wearing of face shields for all passengers in areas where public transportation is allowed.
 
The initiative aims to further reduce the risk of transmitting the COVID-19 in public transport facilities as health authorities have pointed out that the use of face shields and masks reduces exposure to and emission of respiratory droplets considerably. (RTP/PIA10)

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!
