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.

Proposed medical reserve pool in Davao City attracts 90 volunteers

DAVAO CITY, Aug. 3 (PIA)-  Around 90 volunteers attended the briefing for the creation of an Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) medical reserve pool here in Davao City.

These volunteers are composed of doctors, nurses, dentists, medical technologist and other graduates in the medical field. They attended the Joint Reserve Task Force briefing which plans for the creation of a medical reserve pool in the city.

The medical reserve pool aims to enlist medical practitioners and graduates in the medical field as AFP reservists to help the government fight the spread of COVID-19.

According to Davao City Third District Representative and current brigade commander of the 2202nd Ready Reserve Brigade Col. Isidro T. Ungab, the medical reserve pool was the brainchild of Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte.

The medical reserve pool is eyed to augment health care workers and frontliners in hospitals, COVID facilities, airports and testing centers.

About 65 volunteers physically attended the briefing held on August 1 at the headquarters of the 2202nd Ready Reserve Brigade while 25 volunteers participated online, among those who attended via Zoom was Mayor Sara Duterte, who is also a Colonel in the reserve force of the Philippine Army.

One of the volunteers who attended the briefing was Meg Bama, an occupational health nurse and part of a COVID duty team of a private hospital. She volunteered to apply for the reserve pool as based on her experience there is a need to augment the medical frontliners with rising COVID-19 cases.

“We are all tired and diminishing in number, morale is low and many of my fellow health care workers have contacted the virus due to a weakened immune system due to exhaustion, the remaining frontliners could only do so much. Without augmentation and if this situation continues our healthcare system will surely collapse,” Bama said.

During the briefing the administrators of the different Reserve Commands of the AFP alongside health officials of Davao City discussed possible areas of collaboration once the AFP Medical Reserve Pool is formally established. (PIA/RG Alama)

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!
