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.

DTI-10 celebrates consumer welfare month 2020

CAGAYAN DE ORO, Oct. 4 (PIA) – In celebration of the 23rd consumer welfare month this October, the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) – 10 is going to hold its lined up activities and campaigns virtually amid the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID – 19) pandemic, rallying both the consumers and sellers in Northern Mindanao to practice responsible commerce and production practices.

Through its Consumer Protection Group (CPG), the yearly celebration of the Consumer Welfare Month underscores the importance of consumer rights in the entrepreneurial integrity and economic growth as anchored on this year's theme, "Sustainable Consumer in the new normal."

Sustainable Consumerism in the New Normal

Due to the strict implementation of Health Safety Protocols and Stay-At-Home directives from the National Inter-Agency Task Force for Emerging Infectious Diseases (NIATF-EID) to mitigate the rapid spread of the virus, buyer and sellers alike have adapted to the new consumer landscape, mostly shifting to digitalization in their business activities which brought about new norms for the buying public. 

“We have to be smart consumers. Just because we are shifting digitally in this new normal does not mean that we shouldn’t be responsible. As a consumer, we have consumer rights and responsibilities. One of those responsibilities is to be aware of what sustainability is,” DTI-10 Information Officer Ms. Julie A. Nieva shared.

She emphasized that a shopper has the capacity to become a sustainable consumer through critical awareness and educating one's self on the the products being sold on line and their effects on the community and environment. 

In addition to education and awareness, Ms. Nieva also underscored the importance of solidarity in the advocacy for sustainable consumerism by inviting the buyers to join consumer groups to learn more about their rights. “As a group, we are stronger compared to being alone, so we can truly push for our consumer rights," she said.

Consumer welfare month

The month-long celebration kicked off with a nationwide “Consumer Well Fair Zumba” last Oct. 1, which was followed by various virtual activities in the coming weeks such as quiz bees, provincial E-comics contests for college students, webinars on sustainable lifestyles, and more to increase the public’s awareness on their rights, and encourage the masses to practice of sustainable consumption.

“As we celebrate consumer welfare month, I think, despite the pandemic, we still assert and know our rights and responsibilities,” Ms. Nieva stressed.

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!
