Never Again! Never Forget!

Why does it matter?  Can't we move on? There is a thin line between moving forward and forgetting. The occurrence of collective amnesia did not happen only by mistake or overnight. Correctly remembering what happened during Martial Law is important, especially amidst ongoing conversations that attempt to revise history. While others have made attempts through social media platforms to cement the Martial Law's place in our cultural memory, we have a clear social responsibility to be accountable for our actions and be conscious of its impact on others and in our communities. Truths are learned to be remembered and not to be forgotten. There is nothing wrong with forgiving and moving forward, but what makes things hard to digest is when accountability is neglected. In that case, chances are, Filipinos will find it hard to value, defend, and promote our freedom. To be reminded to #NeverForget does not necessarily mean holding a grudge until our very last breath. It will

LGU Borongan starts CBMS survey to determine socio-economic conditions in barangays

BORONGAN CITY, Sept. 1 (PIA) -- The City planning and Development Office (CPDO) started a Community Based Monitoring System (CBMS) survey on August 17, 2020 in Borongan City.

This according to Engr. Jose Jovanny Mercado, City Planning and Development Officer II who said that CBMS data have been very useful in identifying the socio-economic condition of every household in every barangay.

The survey started in barangays Bugas, Can-aga and Sta. Fe. Engr. Mercado disclosed that CBMS serves as the comprehensive database from the grassroots level, through the eight indicators such as health, nutrition, housing, water and sanitation, basic education, income, employment and peace and order.

Mercado further said that for the City of Borongan, all information that will be generated from the CBMS survey will be put in the database and will be used as basis in the implementation of programs, projects and other activities identified and prioritized in the City.

He added that to gather information will take four months. All 61 barangays will be surveyed by enumerators for every household to answer the CBMS survey.

“The City had been providing and extending its support for the project, because they know the outputs of the survey conducted by Local Government Units (LGUs) have been so precise and useful not only for the LGUs but also for other users,” Mercado said.

He further said that the CBMS survey is so far the best source of information for planners, project implementers and decision-makers.

Mercado assured that all information and data gathered from the household will be held confidential. He asked the public to participate in the CBMS survey.

On April 17, 2019, President Rodrigo Roa Duterte signed Republic Act 11315 or otherwise known as An Act Establishing a Community-Based Monitoring System (CBMS), a measure seeking to establish a CBMS to improve poverty analysis in the country. (nbq/sdc/PIA-E. Samar)

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. ✌️

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.

'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.
