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.

SIQUIJOR, Aug. 5 (PIA) -- The Provincial Government of Siquijor will be stricter in its implementation of health protocols following the entry of two locally stranded individuals (LSIs) from Manila who tested positive for COVID-19.

Alarmed over the turn of events despite the provincial government's efforts and stringent implementation of health protocols since the start of the pandemic, Gov. Zaldy Villa in his official statement called for understanding as he made it clear that they are not local transmission.

Siquijor province has been known to be free of the virus for the first seven months. 

He assured that the medical personnel and other frontliners are doing their best in implementing the necessary measures to contain the virus and stop its spread to other Siquijodnons while asking for concerted efforts, prayers, and understanding to the affected individuals, as well as the medical and other frontliners.

Among gikasubo nga naay nakasulod nga COVID-19 positive sa atong isla, bisan pa man sa atong paningkamot sa hugot nga pagpatuman sa health protocols (We are saddened that we have two COVID-19 positive Siquijodnons who have entered the province despite our efforts and strict implementation of our health protocols)," the governor said.

The two LSIs from the towns of Larena and Lazi arrived from Manila using only the negative results of their Rapid Diagnostics Tests (RDT).

The two positive cases and the six other passengers known to be in contact with them were in the provincial isolation and under close monitoring  with swab tests conducted of which the results were negative, said Provincial Health Officer Jemma Masillones Fortich.

In an emergency meeting on Aug. 3, the Provincial COVID-19 Task Force agreed to make a resolution requesting for a moratorium from the national/regional Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) on the management of LSIs following the Provincial IATF’s plan to suspend for at least two weeks the acceptance of returning LSIs while managing the current COVID-19 positive cases.

As of Aug. 3, the Provincial Task Force thru the Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management  Council (PDRRMC) has recorded a total of 1,268 arrivals in the province, of whom 693 are LSIs, 292 are medical personnel, 167 Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs), and 116 Authorized Persons Outside Residence (APOR). 

The province also recorded 886 more Siquijodnons from different parts of the country wanting to return to Siquijor amid this pandemic, the PDRRMO report said. 

Of this number, 95 are from Negros, 447 from Cebu, 49 from Bohol, 151 from Manila, 20 from other parts of Luzon, 17 from other parts of Visayas, and 107 from Mindanao. (rac/PIA7-Siquijor)

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!
