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.

She said that the construction of the Phase 1 amounting to P213.3-million, and Phase 2 amounting to P100-million, are already completed.

“This is one of the significant projects implemented by DPWH in this part of the province, which aims to prevent possible destruction caused by massive flood especially when heavy rains occur,” Delfinado said in the media report.

She added that the flood control project is in line with one of the Department’s organization strategic outcomes, which is to protect the lives and properties against natural disasters through building disaster-resilient infrastructures to the identified danger-prone areas during occurrence of calamities and disasters.

On the other hand, Alunan said that the project will benefit roughly 4,000 households from around five barangays located near the river.

She noted that crop losses and property damages will be prevented and water overflow as well as soil erosion will be mitigated with the presence if this revetment structure.

“This flood control structure will also provide the people an opportunity to improve their physical environment and adopt agricultural practices for their livelihood, hence would help improve their economic condition,” Alunan added.

Aside from the flood control project, Delfinado also made an ocular inspection on the ongoing construction of P36-million Regional Evacuation Center in Kabankalan City in Negros Occidental.

The evacuation center will be used as temporary shelter of the people in times of calamities and disasters or venue for various conferences and meetings in times when there are no disasters.

The evacuation center is composed of eight buildings, namely accommodation building, office and infirmary building, laundry/drying area, separate toilets and baths for male and female, pump room, generator room, and materials recovery facility.

Part also of the project is the provision of cistern tank and drainage system.

Delfinado said the center is designed to be disaster resilient, gender-sensitive and compliant to the standard Regional Evacuation Center to enhance response capabilities of the communities in times of disasters and emergencies. (JBG-PIA6/With report from DPWH6-RPIO)

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!
