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.

MDRRMC Tubod goes online with Vlog tilt

ILIGAN CITY, Aug. 6 (PIA) - The Municipal Disaster Risk Reduction Management Council (MDRRMC) of the Municipality of Tubod in Lanao del Norte recently concluded its first-ever Disaster Resiliency Vlog Contest which ran from July 25 to July 31.

Xia Lorraine Alegado, 6, from Brgy. Poblacion won first place under the 'What is inside your Go/Emergency Bag?' category. Xia's video showed a witty, charming little girl, showing viewers what is inside her Go Bag – simulating a grocery scene. She imitated a scene at the checkout counter of a grocery store, showing each item needed in case of emergency then tagging it with a hair blow dryer as a price barcode gun

Xia Lorraine Alegado, 6, from Poblacion, Tubod, Lanao del Norte, won first place under the 'What is inside your Go/Emergency Bag?' category.

Xia’s entry outweighed competitors through its content, originality, and style, beating 13 other participants in the same category. 

Mc Jeeson and Kathe Christine Olavides also won in the 'What are your pandemic budgeting tips?' and 'What is your home quarantine routine?' categories, respectively. 

The Disaster Resiliency Vlog Contest is one of the component activities for the National Disaster Resilience Month (NDRM) 2020 celebration of the Local Government Unit of Tubod designed to raise awareness and promote proactive engagements in the new normal.

This was conceptualized by MDRRM Officer Vicmar P. Paloma with the support of the MDRRM Council headed by Mayor Leoncio C. Bagol. 

Paloma said the concept’s inspiration and innovation came from online competitions at the national level NDRRMC and OCD which had online spoken poetry competition and video challenges in celebration of the NDRM 2020. 

“Annually, we have a month-long celebration for the NDRM, however, due to restrictions brought about by this pandemic, wala mi nakahimo ug activities (we could not stage activities), the council decided to go online, anchoring on our Information Education Campaign program, my office proposed that the activity would be a Vlog contest,” said Paloma. 

Contest winners of each category will receive certificates and cash prizes of P6,000.00, P4,000.00, and P2,000.00 for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place, respectively.

“We empower every member of the family to get involved in disaster resiliency programs because risk reduction and climate change adaptation begin at home. I am happy that this contest was launched," said Mayor Bagol.

Beautyrose Gandarosa, Patricia Jade and Justify Marie Mojado were voted as People's Choice Award in their respective categories for garnering the most number of 'Love' reactions on Facebook.  They will also receive P1,500.00 cash each with certificates. 

The entry of Prinz Cyrus Christiani Fuentes was given Special Citation with a cash prize of P3,000.00 for its cinematic excellence and the video's attempt to cause vigilance, especially during this health crisis. 

Paloma said the contest entries turnout was “overwhelming” with more than 10 entries each category. 

"One of our gains also is the number of reach of our official Facebook page.  We now have 11,299 followers from a little over 10,000 before the launch. It added audiences for us, labi na karon nga thru social media mas more effective ang mga IEC campaign (especially now that it is through social media where IEC campaigns are more effective)," he added.

The MDRRMC of Tubod, Lanao del Norte is now planning to institutionalize the competition and bring about the addition of more categories, including a professional category, annually. (Shaun Alejandrae Y. Uy/PIA-10)

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.
