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.

With QPass in place in Bohol, family dining in restos not possible

TAGBILARAN CITY, Bohol, Aug. 11 (PIA) –- The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) may have issued a memorandum that increased the dining capacity of opened restaurants in areas declared under Modified General Community Quarantine (MGCQ), but family members living under one home address will have to wait until the Home Quarantine Passes (HQP) can be recalled before they can go out and share one dining table in a restaurant here.  

In Bohol, the implementation of "one-household-one HQP" policy makes it impossible for family members to go out together and dine out as establishments do not allow the entry of people without the HQP. 

DTI, through its Memorandum Circular 20-39 series of 2020, has increased the dining capacity of opened restaurants in MGCQ-declared areas up to 75 percent.

With the Memorandum Circular which the DTI issued on July 17, 2020, the government has widened the provisions for faster economic recovery when it allowed restaurants, dine-in establishments, canteens, food courts, food parks and eateries and establishments providing dining-in services to operate subject to strict compliance with the social distancing protocols.

In areas declared under General Community Quarantine (GCQ), restaurants are only allowed to operate at a 50 percent capacity.

With the economic disruption brought about by the coronavirus pandemic, the government sees this as an opportunity for workers in the said establishments to get more income and for the establishment to have greater turnover of diners.

However, with curfew all over Bohol from 9:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m., the MC has "enjoined local government units" to adjust their curfew hours to midnight so that restaurants can remain open until 11:00 p.m..

Starting July 21, 2020, restaurants and fastfood services are allowed to serve all kinds of food and beverages including alcoholic drinks as long as a customer is only given no more than two individual servings of alcoholic beverage. 

Section 4 of the MC, however, reiterates the mandatory minimum requirements of their operations.

In reference to the Department of Health’s Administrative Order 2020-0015 and the DTI interim guidelines on workplace prevention and control of COVID-19 in the workplace, restaurant owners are required to register with Safepass or for a better and more efficient contactless contact tracing system for customers and guests.

They also must provide a thermal scanner as personal, suppliers, and guests with a temperature of 37.5 shall be denied entry.

Establishments must also provide hand washing stations or alcohol-based hand sanitizers for easy use by guests and customers and also for personnel.

The establishment is also mandated to strictly impose "no mask, no entry policy", assign a local monitoring officer for compliance to physical distancing which shall be observed in all places of the establishment.

For minimum chances of transmission, authorities recommend dining al fresco, but for air-conditioned dining areas, owners must enhance their exhaust system and install proper ventilation systems to ensure better air flow.

For queuing customers, the policy is to make sure there is ample one-meter distance on all sides, as well as chairs, they must be placed a meter apart.

For face-to-face seating, owners must put up tabletop clear acrylic dividers at least 18 inches tall to prevent virus transmission while making sure there is reduced contact among waiters and customers.

While the new MC allows buffet service, food servers must be there to assist and all food containers must have food covers. (rahchiu/PIA-7/Bohol)

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.
