Pinopondohan ng pera ng bayan habang nagre-recruit ng mga kasapi para sa CPP-NPA?

Ipinost ng isang makakanan na Facebook Page account, Right Wing Philippines, ang isang photo na kung saan ay makikita si Kabataan Partylist Representative Sarah Elago kasama si Satur Ocampo na naglalakad sa isang madamong lugar, nagpapahiwatig na nasa kabundukan ang grupo.

“Kabataan Partylist Representative Sarah Elago along with CPP Member Satur Ocampo and Youths Recruited by Legal Fronts in an Unknown Location,” ayon sa post ng Right Wing Philippines.

Ayon sa mga netizens, ang picture umano ay sapat na upang mapatunayan na ang mga kabataang aktibo sa nasabing partido ay inire-recruit upang sumapi sa New People’s Army (NPA) ng Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP).

Ayon rin sa nasabing Facebook page ay dinadala umano ang mga kabataan sa kampo ng NPA upang maging terorista at kalaban ng gobyerno.

“Those Guys are Bringing their Recruits to the NPA Camp to Become Terrorists. The Intel on Red October School Recruit is legit,” dagdag ng nasabing Facebook page.

Matatandaang ipinahayag ng pamunuan ng Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) na may mga schools particular sa ka-Maynilaan na nagre-recruit ng mga estudyante upang sumapi sa rebeldeng grupo.

Ang pagre-recruit ng mga NPA sa mga estudyante ay hindi na kataka-taka ayon sa dating Malacanang Spokesman na si Harry Roque, ngunit hindi daw ito gagawin bilang hayagan bagkus ay patago. Si Roque ay dating professor din sa University of the Philippines.

Solar-powered irrigation systems sa buong bansa, nasimulan na!

SOLAR POWERED NA PATUBIG

Tinatayang aabot ng 500,000 ektarya ng sakahan ang kailangang ma-supply-an ng tubig (irrigation) upang makamit ang rice self-sufficiency sa taong 2020.

Dahil dito ay isinakatuparan na ng pamahalaang Duterte sa pamamagitan ng Department of Agriculture ang paglalagay ng Solar Powered Irrigation Systems (SPIS) sa iba’t-ibang locations sa bansa.

Kapag nakumpleto ang nasabing plano ay magdaragdag ito ng walong metric tons per hectare na supply ng palay kada taon. Sapat na umano ito upang pakainin lalu na ang mga mahihirap na Pilipino maging sa panahon ng post-harvest seasons.

“A rice field producing four metric tons per year without effective irrigation can produce six metric tons two times a year when consistent water supply is maintained. With that estimate, we’ll be able to yield an additional eight metric tons per hectare every year from the additional 500,000 hectare irrigated farmland, which is equivalent to four million metric tons. This is enough to feed our people, even with post-harvest losses considered,” pahayag ni Agriculture Secretary Manny Piñol.

Ang nasabing patubig (irrigation) na gamit ang solar energy ay kinukunsidera na “thinking outside the box” ni DA Secretary Pinol.

“We need to think outside the box if we want to achieve rice self-sufficiency,” ayon kay Sec. Piñol

Noong Agosto 20 ay na-turnover na ang kauna-unahang functional na SPIS sa Brgy. New Janiuay, M’lang, North Cotabato. Hangad ng DA na malagyan pa ng parehas na sistema ang iba pang bahagi na lugar sa Pilipinas ayon sa plano.

Dahil sa SPIS ay inaasahan na magiging doble ang turnout ng mga bigas sa isang taon at aabot ito ng 120 sako kada hektarya sa panahon ng cropping season.

“Our country has a 3.9 million (M) hectares of land for farming, but only 1.2M hectares has effective irrigation. This leaves us with 2.7M hectares of unirrigated farmlands,” paliwanag ni Piñol.

“Remember that food grows where water flows, and we need good and efficient irrigation systems if we want to attain our rice self-sufficiency target,” dagdag pa niya.

Sa ngayon ay mayrron pang 169 na SPIS ang itinatayo sa buong bansa at inaasahang tataas pa ang bilang nito matapos maaprubahan ang P44 bilyon na budget.

Please SHARE kung ito ay good news para sayo at sa buong Pilipino!

“911 is real, change is here!”

duterte 911

Malaki ang pasasalamat ni Richard Serrano Celeste, unang-una na sa Panginoon at pangalawa ay sa Pangulong Duterte dahil na rin sa nasimulang nationawide 911 emergency call. Dahil dito ay mabilis na naidala ang kanyang anak sa hospital upang mabigyan ng agarang lunas.

“911 is real, change is here…”, ayon kay Richard na halos hindi pa rin makapaniwala na mayroon na ngang 911 na maaasahan sa panahon ng emergency.

Ipinost ni Richard sa social media ang kanyang karanasan sa Emergency Hotline 911 sa Iligan City.

“I was about to sleep the other night when our Baby Abraham cried out loud because he had a difficulty breathing normally due to throat irritation. He sounded hoarse while coughing that we decided to rush him to the hospital whatever it takes,” naisulat ni Richard sa kanyang Facebook account.

Nag-decide sila na dalhin ang batang sanggol sa hospital ngunit walang available na sasakyan dahil na rin sa disoras na ng gabi. Naisip ni Richard na subukan ang 911 Emergency Hotline.

Matapos ang 20 minuto ay dumating ang City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office (CDRRMO) ng Iligan City sa apartment ni Celeste upang maihatid ang bata sa hospital.

“They warmly accommodated us and they checked our baby’s vital signs while we were on our way to the Adventist Medical Center (formerly known as Mindanao Sanitarium Hospital),” ayon kay Richard.

Pinasalamatan niya ang mabilis na action ng 911 call center agent at staff ng CDRRMO. Bagaman mahirap umanong hanapin ang kanilang lcoation ay natuntun pa rin sila upang mabigyan ng tulong.

“Thank you Lord that 911 really works because being a parent so concerned of his child’s welfare will really be bothered, especially if he has no vehicle yet to ride on,” dagdag ni Richard.

Narito ang post ni Richard sa kanyang Facebook account:

911 is real, change is here…

I was about to sleep the other night when our Baby Abraham cried out loud because he had a difficulty breathing normally due to throat irritation. He sounded hoarse while coughing that we decided to rush him to the hospital whatever it takes. We faced a challenge on transportation because it was already midnight. We did not panic but instead explored possible options. I tried calling a former classmate but understandably, it was a time for a good night sleep. Our baby still cried and I thought of calling 911 at 11:46PM. I then dialled it via my globe phone and a representative answered my call. I immediately asked her if health emergencies form part of their services and she readily said yes. She asked me important details on the reason of the call, how old is the baby and our location. After 11 minutes (at 11:57PM) while we were packing our things, someone using a mobile number called me up and he told me that he is one of the personnel from the City Disaster Risk Reduction and Risk Management Office (CDRRMO) and that they are on their way to Tipanoy, Iligan City. At exactly 12:06AM, they reached our apartment and we boarded on their van.

They warmly accommodated us and they checked our baby’s vital signs while we were on our way to the Adventist Medical Center (formerly known as Mindanao Sanitarium Hospital).

Thank you Lord that 911 really works because being a parent so concerned of his child’s welfare will really be bothered especially if he has no vehicle yet to ride on. Thank you to 911 hotline representative for the positive response of helping out. Thank you the CDRRMO staff for the very quick action. Kudos for easily locating us despite the not-so-easily-accessible location. I forgot to ask names and took photo of them because we hurriedly proceeded to the emergency room of the hospital for the baby’s admission.

To those who are in the same situation, 911 can be accessed using your mobile phones. Just dial the number and a hotline representative is ready to assist you 24/7. They will then coordinate with CDRRMO or MDRRMO depending on your location.

Apparently, we celebrated my birthday at the hospital the entire day (July 24) 😀

As of this writing, our baby is doing well and he was discharged from the hospital this morning.

Salamat Lord…

911 is real, change is here…

#PrayingForACar

Noong May 25 ay nilagdaan ni Pangulong Duterte ang Executive Order No. 56 na naglalayong gawing emergency hotline ang 911, kapalit sa PATROL 117, upang masunod ang international standards.

Ang 911 at 8888 emergency hotlines ay free of charge. Una nang ginagamit sa Davao ang 911 sa loob ng dalawang dekadang pagiging mayor ni Duterte.

Huwag kalimutang i-SHARE ang magandang balitang ito.
