ORMOC CITY It was the anathema of the known Filipino machismo, but men folk of Brgy. Naungan and San Juan here visibly cried as their leader made a tearful speech, thanking the Rotary Club of Makati South and Leyte Rep. Lucy Torres-Gomez for giving them motorized bancas on the morning of Tuesday, March 11, 2014. I n t h e v e r n a c u l a r, Naungan-San Juan Mangrove Planters Association (NASAMPA) president Renato Quilay said the motorized bancas will not only give them back their livelihood, but it also gave them hope and faith in the goodness of men. Di gyod ni nako makalimtan nga adlaw sa ako kinabuhi, Maam, Sir. Amo ni himoong holiday sa ako pamilya. Ako gyod suginlan ang ako mga anak, mga apo, og mga anak sa akong mga apo kabahin ning adlawa nga gihatagan mi og Bangka sa among congresswoman nga gwapa na kaayo, bulawanon pa ang dughan, he said. (I will never forget this day in my life. I will make this day (March 11) a holiday for my family and I will tell them about this day when our beautiful congresswoman and people with golden hearts gave us our lives back through a motorized boat.) At his back were his members who tried to hide their tears unsuccessfully. It was an emotional moment that Rep. Lucy T. Gomez, at loss on what to say, just hugged Quilay. I was very touched at his words, said Lucy, and hearing him seeing them in tears, so thankful and happy, just makes all the hard work worth it. There was a light mom e n t , h o w e v e r, w h e n Quilay mentioned that even if fishing nets were not included in the gift of hope they got, they will find a way to put it to use immediately. It elicited laughter from the guests because they knew it was his way of asking for it. 50 bancas with Honda engines at P 32,000 each were distributed to the NASAMPA today. There were more to come, Rep. Gomez said. The motorized bancas were donations from the Rotary Club of Makati South and its sister clubs from other parts of the world that they coursed through Lucys 6,200: Mission Possible. The sister clubs are the Rotary Clubs of Tokyo Jonan, Hapan; Jakarta Gambir, Indonesia; West Lake Village, California; Tanglin, Singapore; Gumbak, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Rep. Gomez said Rotary Club of Makati was the first donor of motorboats who called her, signifying they wanted to help her district. It was another answered prayer, she said. The Leyte congresswoman has since launched 6200: Mission Possible, aiming to raise 6,200 motorboats for her constituents.

New Zealand commits 2.5-million dollars for agricultural rehabilitation through FAO
to the Philippines Reuben Levermore. Also with them was Rajendra Aryal, FAO representative to the Philippines, and assistant regional directors Ismael Aya-ay and Dr. Jennylyn Ruiz-Almeria of the Department of Agriculture. In an interview with one villager, Leopoldo Morbos, 49, he was very thankful at the intervention of international NGOs. He was looking forward to the farming interventions that the FAO would be giving them. Morbos has 10 children. He has a rice and coconut farm. His rice, already harvestable when Yolanda slammed through last November 8, are all gone. All of his coconut trees, about 100, are totally damaged. The farmer Morbos said that he used to have a reasonable income from selling tuba, at P 300 per Jerry can before Yolanda. He could have made a killing now because tuba is being sold at P 300 a gallon or P 1,000.00 for one Jerry can, but the problem is, he does not even have one tree to gather tuba from. He was able to send all of his children to school. In fact, two have graduated from college and were already helping them with the daily expenses. However, both lost their jobs after Yolanda. Now, he said, except for the rice supply that they are getting from relief organizations and a small vegetable patch, he does not know what to do. Another villager, Estelita Ladrera, 60, said that among their biggest needs in Brgy. Gacao is shelter assistance. Pointing to the houses nearby, she swears that they have not received any sim or GI sheets and most of them are making do with trapal or plastic sheets for their roofs.

Flanking them are DA assistant regional director Ismael Aya-ay and Dr. Jennylyn Ruiz-Almeria. PALO, LEYTE New Zealand Minister of Civil Defence Nikki Kaye announced during a meeting with villagers in a Yolanda-affected farming community here on the afternoon of Sunday, March 16, that their government is giving 2.5-million NZ dollars to restore their livelihoods and farms. In Philippine peso, the amount is P 96-million. The aid is on top of the 5-million NZ dollars the country immediately donated for emergency relief aid, she told villagers of Brgy. Gacao, this town. The 2.5-million dollars agricultural aid would be coursed through UNs Food and Agricultural Organization, just like their previous donation for relief aid was coursed through international NGOs like Oxfam and the like. Rajendra Aryal, FAO representative to the Philippines, said that the money would be used to help the farmers restore their farms, replant it, buy tools and farm animals. Necessary trainings would also be held for both the farmers and agricultural technicians. Minister Kaye, on the other hand, said that New Zealand, being an agricultural country, feel they can impart their knowledge in the area. She shared that they also have had their share of tragedies which they are still recovering from, the most severe in recent years was the Christchurch earthquake. We are still rebuilding but more important than buildings are the lives of people, she said. Our hearts are with you, she added, and this time, we are putting our money into it. She emphasized that her presence in the village was a show of how committed they are to help the villagers but added they did not want to impose the solutions to their problems but would rather that the approach taken is community-based. It was also learned that aside from the emergency aid released by the NZ government to international NGOs that responded to the Yolanda situation, their government is also giving the Philippine government an annual assistance of 4-million NZ dollars. Kaye said these funds could come handy to continue the work of the FAO if the emergency fund runs short. The villagers of Gacao warmly welcomed Minister Kaye and NZ Ambassador

UN-OCHA, international NGOs orient media on the dynamics of humanitarian response

DAR Secretary issues AO to govern coco holdings

Anne Skatvedt of UN-OCHA. THE DANGEROUS thing during an emergency are rumors, said UN-OCHA Public Information Officer Anne Skatvedt during the Orientation for Media on Humanitarian System and Yolanda response held at the Sabin Resort Hotel on March 14. The orientation, organized by the United Nations Office of Japan, 5% from Australia and 7% from CERF. The Central Emergency Response Fund or CERF, said Ashley Clements, are pooled funds from various sources that can be accessed for emergency purposes, in the meantime the UN is still calling out for donations. The donations, he said, has helped 4 million displaced people and 1 million damaged

Registered landowners and tenants were oriented of the administrative order and it was made clear that the AO does not only protect the rights of the tenants but also landowners. DAR officers appealed to both parties to settle amicably at all times and for landowners to follow the law in ejecting erring tenants. ORMOC CITY As part of their efforts to help farmers in the Eastern Visayas recover from Typhoon Yolanda, the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) is going on an all-out campaign to inform tenants and owners of coconut lands the provisions of an administrative order issuing rules and regulations on leasehold operations in tenanted coconut lands. It was signed by DAR Secretary Virgilio delos Reyes on February 26 and published on March 4. It will take effect on March 14, Friday, and by Saturday, the DAR regional office will be holding its first conference with landowners hereabouts to inform them of its provisions. DAR regional director Eliasem Castillo said that by March 17, Monday, their office would hold pulongpulong or consultations at the barangay levels in all towns in Leyte, Samar and Biliran. This is to ensure that the information is well-disseminated to avoid conflicts in the future. However, they have not received any complaints yet. The AO, he said, addresses possible situations that could crop up, which answers scenarios raised in an earlier consultation with coconut farmers attended by the Secretary himself. Former DAR Usec. Augusto Quijano, now a legal consultant of DAR, explained its provisions to media during a conference in the evening of March 11 at the Sabin Resort Hotel. He added the AO is there to stay even after Yolanda to cover affected coconut farmers during fortuitous events and natural disasters. The AO aims to protect tenants of coco lands with leasehold agreements with the landowners. The AO was an offshoot of an earlier consultation with them led by the Agrarian Secretary himself. The rules strictly prohibits ejectment and dispossession of the tenants just because they cannot pay their lease, which is the case now after Yolanda. It also gives the tenant a foothold to re-negotiate a new leasehold agreement with the landowner, to include a change of crops meantime they are waiting for the coconuts to recover. The AO further provides that consideration for the lease shall not be more than the equivalent of 25% of the average harvest during the past three years after said fortuitous events happened. Partially damaged coconut trees will take 2 to 3 years before they bear fruit again, said DAR regional director Eliasem Castillo. Totally damaged trees, on the other hand, are not totally useless, Castillo added, as it can be used as coco lumber. The AO also covers this. After deducting the cost of cutting it up to lumber, transport and hauling are deducted and reimbursed to whoever shouldered it, the tenant and his landowner will divide the proceeds with the tenant getting the lions share of not less than 75%. It was also learned that during the consultation, there were questions raised as to where the tenants would remit their payments in case the landowners are incommunicado. In the case of Yolanda, some landowners could be among the more than 6,000 who perished in the storm surges. The AO again provides an answer to this. All the tenant has to do is to go to the nearest Municipal Agrarian Reform Program Officer (MARPO) to report the problem. Then he deposits the 25% due to the landowner at the nearest LandBank. DAR regional director said their office had to issue the AO to answer to the plight of coconut farmers. The major crop in Eastern Visayas, he said, was coconut. Of the 92 Agrarian Reform Communities in Leyte, Samar and Eastern Samar, which were badly hit by Yolanda, 49 were severely affected. This translates to 58,416 agrarian reform beneficiaries and their families from the 112,000 ARBs, 29,000 of who are severely affected. By LMJ

For the Yolanda response, US $788-M was targetted to be raised from donors but polled only around $370-M. Thats only 47% of the requested fund, said Ashley Clements, head of UN-OCHA in Ormoc.
the Coordination for Humanitarian Affairs (UN-OCHA), was intended to inform media practitioners hereabouts about the humanitarian system and its role during emergencies. Anne Skatvedt also emphasized on the importance of humanitarian reporting, putting human interest into stories to uplift the spirit. UN-OCHA, also briefed media of their role as a coordinating arm, with local and international agencies and non-governmental organizations (NGOs). It was learned that these agencies and NGOs, including international ones, are grouped into clusters according to their emergency response priorities to avoid overlapping of priorities during a crisis situation. Some of the clusters are classified as Health, Education, Nutrition, Shelter, Water and Sanitation Health (WASH) and Child Protection, among others. UN-OCHA presented to participants the statistics accumulated from the beginning of their Yolanda humanitarian response here in Leyte. Accordingly, they requested US $788-M but polled only around $370-M. Thats only 47% of the requested fund, said Ashley Clements, head of UN-OCHA in Ormoc. Of the US $370-millon, 32% of that comes from private individuals and organizations, 11% from United States, another 11% from the United Kingdom, another 7% from houses due to the typhoon. UNOCHA has given food assistance to the 4 million people, given seeds to 44,000 families, given basic emergency shelter materials to 500,000 households, screened 97,000 children for malnutrition, provided learning materials to 420,000 children and gave temporary shelters to 140,000 families. After the UNOCHAs presentation, cluster coordinators from their partner agencies also discussed their respective humanitarian system and response. Representatives from International Medical Corps, Save the Children, UNHCR, WASH and International Organization for Migration briefed participants of their respective mandates. During the Q&A time, the participants raised various concerns and deliberated on parameters on how to deliver information and psychosocial support to the community despite being victims of the disaster themselves. It was learned that in times of crisis such as that of Yolanda, accurate information is as crucial as food and shelter, and that communication is aid; to tell positive stories and to be result-oriented. Meanwhile, the UN-OCHA head of challenged mediamen to shed light on issues that the community dont know and highlight them in stories; otherwise, it will continue to be a problem. By Jhay Gaspar

Sagip Kapamilya Fdn. donates 2 buildings to NOCNHS


A CEREMONIAL ground breaking of two 4-classroom buildings donated by ABS-CBN Sagip Kapamilya Foundation to New Ormoc City National High School was held last March 11. Sagip Kapamilya Foundation, through the Energy Development Corporation (EDC), partnered with the Department of Education to provide eight additional classrooms for the New Ormoc City National High School (NOCNHS). The construction, with 90 days target completion, is set to start this month. The projects budget is yet to be fixed as the design is still evolving and the cost might get higher, says EDC Project leader Edwin Magallanes.

P 93-million plus P 8.4 million equals 1 dengue death?


WHILE COVERING the session this week, councilor Vincent Rama handed me a paper containing the report of city treasurer Angelo Roman on how much the city already got from money donations. (see story on page 2 about the donors) First, let us thank the donors for their generosity. Most are LGUs. There are also kindhearted individuals who gave from out of their pockets. Aside from these generous donations, intended to help the city respond to the calamity, the city itself has P 93-million in calamity funds. Initially, it was thought to be P 130-million but after a thorough accounting of the funds, what was actually on hand as of December 2013 was P 93-M. This is the money where the citys emergency purchases like the P 50,000 a day for crude oil and gasoline for the six water sources come from. There has been no liquidation shown of the money yet, I was told. However, despite having such funds, the city already has posted one dengue fatality. In his report before media during a UNOCHA affair, sanitation inspector Rolando Quilantang reported that Ormoc already posted its first fatality this month. In January, there were 164 cases while there were 133 cases for February. The dengue outbreak last December which spiked to an all time high by January was declared a calamity already by the City Disaster Risk Reduction Management Council (CDRRMC), in its full council meeting held last February 7 yet. With the declaration, a report by Dr. Nelita Navales was adopted, including a recommendation to buy Temephos, a larvicide. The larvicide is to be sprinkled on where clean water stagnates because it becomes the breeding ground of mosquitoes, especially Aedis Egypti kind which is the vector of dengue and a cousin, Chikungunya. At this juncture, I recall Quilantangs PowerPoint spell it as Chickengunya which made it seem it was a disease affecting chickens, L-O-L. To recall, CDRRMC approved the release of funds to purchase Temephos, which by the way, IPI is offering at cost. Commercially, this larvicide is being sold at P 3,000 per kilo. But IPI, owned by the very generous Rotarian Bobong Castillo who has even lent his huge property in Tacloban for the temporary housing of Yolanda victims, is selling it at cost (P 315.00 per kilo) to help combat dengue. I came to know this week that the larvicide has not yet been bought as wa pay P.O.. Compounding the problem is that the Commission on Audit (COA) has reportedly told Navales that her recommendation to hire 100 people to do apply larvicide simultaneously in the citys barangays had no legal basis. I learned this during the councils discussion about the matter. Dr. Mario Rodriguez reported that he got the said information from Dr. Nelita Navales. At that time, he even said

Our lifelong warfare


WITH LENT in our midst, we should be reminded of our duty to hone up our skills in spiritual warfare. We should not let this Lenten season pass without doing anything to improve ourselves in this particular department. Christ already hinted this much when he said: From the days of John the Baptist until now, the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent bear it away. (Mt 11,12) We have to understand though that to be violent in this sense does not mean to be destructive but rather constructive, driven by love and the desire to be united with God and with the others in a way proper to us as children of God and brothers and sisters among ourselves. Our life here on earth cannot but be in some form of struggle. Aside from our innate urge to grow and develop that requires some effort, we also have to contend with enemies whose sole intent is precisely to bring us down, to divert us from our proper path toward holiness. We are not simply ranged against natural difficulties, challenges and trials in life, but rather with very powerful and subtle nemeses. The natural enemies alone are already formidable. St. John describes them this way: For all that is in the world is the concupiscence of the flesh, and the concupiscence of the eyes, and the pride of life, which is not of the Father, but is of the world. (1 Jn 2,16) Thats why we can talk easily about envy, jealousy, vanity, lust, greed, sloth, etc. For this type of enemies alone, we need an extensive spiritual pharmacopeia and moral regimen to cleanse us of their affliction. Thats why we are encouraged, especially during Lent, to intensify our fasting and abstinence, and other forms of mortification. We should not take this indication lightly. They are very necessary. Yes, we need to pray a lot and grow in the different virtues so we can be strong, optimistic and cheerful, prudent and capable of handling these challenges. We have to learn how to deal with our weaknesses and the usual temptations that come from the flesh and the world. But we still have enemies tougher than these. As St. Paul said, Our wrestling is not against flesh and blood, but against principalities and power, against the rulers of the world of darkness, against the spirits of wickedness in the high places. (Eph 6,12) This type of enemies affects us more deeply. They corrupt not only the body, but also our very spirit that is supposed to be our immediate and direct conduit with God. They bring our warfare from the arena of the natural to that of the spiritual and supernatural. With these enemies, our intelligence and will, our thoughts and desires would then operate outside the context of Gods will. Our thoughts and desires would then be at the mercy of evil spirits that can only be handled properly if we also use spiritual and supernatural means, and not just some natural power. When we fail to deliberately offer everything we think, say and do to God, as told to us in the gospel, then we open ourselves to the coming of another spirit that will offer us, at

Perfect Storm?
FILIPINOS SHARE one common item in our everyday existence: rice, National Scientist Gelia Castillo wrote in her book on a cereal that makes or breaks presidents. Rice In Our Life reviewed three decades of studies into rice that was sown, between 6,000 BC and 400 AD, in Ifugao to Lucena. Rice self-sufficiency has been an upward moving target, always out of reach, even as we calculate we are only three percent short, she wrote . Seared deep in the psyche of Filipino politicians are crises when we could not find rice, even if we had the money to buy it. Unseasonal storms, meanwhile, ripped up the old rice calculus. Sendong tore into Cagayan de Oro and Iligan in 2011, leaving 1,080 corpses. Typhoon Pablo later clobbered Compostela Valley and Davao Oriental. This shattered the historical pattern of one typhoon cutting through Mindanaos breadbasket every 18 years. Then, the Bohol earthquake and Super-typhoon Yolanda, last November, savaged farms. Only 97 percent sufficiency was attainable for 2013, Agriculture Department conceded. National Food Authority opened the applications for imports, for use and as buffer stock. Ayaw magsaligan ring tiyan, sa anat ibang taegsan, an Aklan proverb says. Dont count on someone elses rice bin for what you eat. The immediate, however, can blur the long term threats. The number of crop species that now feed more people than half a century ago, is shrinking. Rice, wheat, sugar and potatoes form a new globalized diet. Over the past 50 years, diets around the world have become more similar, notes Colombia-based International Center for Tropical Agricultures Colin Khoury. Todays diet includes staples that were not important half a century ago, particularly oil crops like soybean. Other crops however declined, including sweet potatoes, cassava, yams and millets. This narrowing base raises concerns about the global food systems resilience. Another danger is a more homogeneous global food basket makes agriculture more vulnerable to drought, insect pests and diseases, Luigi Guarino, from Global Crop Diversity told BBCs environment reporter Mark Kinver. Diversity of cultivated crops, in fact, declined by 75 per cent during the 20th century, UN Food and Agriculture Organization estimates. If this slide persists, a third of todays

diversity could disappear by 2050. Seepage of crop diversity also jacks up the number of people that are exposed to harvest failures. And climate change compounds the risk. Warmer temperatures are causing malaria to spread to higher altitudes and once-disease free regions in Asia, South America and Africa, says the Science journal. A 1 C rise in temperature could lead to an additional three million cases in a year, cautions University of Michigans Mercedes Pascual. The Philippines targets nationwide malaria elimination by 2020. But it still lacks a long term domestic program even as international funding dwindles. A perfect storm of growing populations, climate change and diminishing resources for food production confronts the world, warns the new Foresight Report on Food and Farming Futures, commissioned by the United Kingdom. The two-year study involved 400 experts from 35 countries. Do we have 20 years to arguably deliver 40 percent more food; 30 percent more fresh water and double energy output? asks the UKs chief scientific adviser, Sir John Beddington. The current system must be radically redesigned to produce more food sustainably. We cant wait ... There is an urgency in taking what may be very difficult policy decisions, he adds. The food system is working for the better off..... But those at risk of hunger have least influence on decision-making. The UK recommends that the most resource-intensive types of food be curbed. Waste in food production has to be radically curbed. Yearly, the Philippines loses a million metric tons of already-harvested rice, from slipshod processing to shabby storage. Cabbage spoilage mars a third of harvests, UP Los Baos studies found. Fish losses crest at 40 percent. Consumers in rich countries junk as much food as sub-Saharan Africa produces. Wasting food is stealing from tables of the poor, Pope Francis told a UN World Environment Day audience. A culture of waste is despicable when many suffer from hunger. Our grandparents were very careful not to throw leftover food.

St. Joseph: The least heard of the saints


WE ALL know the circumstances that propelled St. Joseph to an enviable accolade; after all, he was the foster Father of Jesus Christ, who redeemed mankind from the abyss it was headed due to sin. And as such, he was also the husband of Mama Mary which in itself is quite a feat and an honor. There was a time when the young girls were dreaming to be the mother of Jesus Christ as foretold by the prophets. The young girls were vying for such an honor. Little did they know that the honor was already earmarked to Mary who was already chosen by God the Father even when she was yet in the womb of her mother. To be the mother of Jesus, she had to be spotless. The title Immaculate Conception was to be bestowed on her because Jesus Christ cannot be born to a young girl who was not clean, one who is not free from sin. Mama Mary is the Queen of Heaven and Earth. For those who pray the Rosary, all the attributes of the Blessed Virgin Mary (BVM) is found in the Litany which follows after each recital. There are more than fifty of such accolade attributed to the BVM. The Rosary is considered the highest form of prayer; second only to the holy sacrifice of the mass; it is like a small Bible. There are two people in the Bible with the name of Joseph which this corner would like to dwell on. There is one which is quite popular in the play entitled Joseph the Dreamer. He is the youngest of 12 brothers with 2 mothers. He was hated by his older brothers because of his many dreams that depict him as a person where his elders would bow to him. Moreover, he was also the pet of his father, Jacob, who made him a robe with several colors which made his brothers envious of him all the more. They could no longer hold their hatred for him. The opportunty came for them to dispose of him by killing him and telling their father that he was devoured by wild beasts. They changed their plan to a lesser evil: selling him as a slave due to the urging of Reuben (who was friendly to Joseph). It was his destiny that he will become an officer, in fact a Governor of the Pharaoh, because the Lord was with him. The complete narrative of him can be found in Genesis from Chapter 37 onwards. It is a beautiful narrative in which his brothers, the very ones who hated him, were made to eventually realize their biggest blunder. It was here that Joseph showed his humility by telling his brothers not to worry about what they did because it was Gods plan to save them from the famine that lasted seven years. The other Joseph is the direct descendant of David who was betrothed to Mary who was already chosen by God the Father. When he found out that she was carrying a child not by him, he could have denounced her. She would have been stoned to death because this was the penalty for infidelity. What did he do to exercise his right as husband? Not only did he remain silent, he was even willing to leave her without creating noise. Here in Ormoc City, he was the equivalent of a turutot, an under the saya or what is termed USAFE for under the saya forever and ever. Jewish law would have demanded stoning. But this is the kind that saintly people are made of. Considering that it was what made him ten feet tall, and considering that he was eventually elevated to be the Patron Saint of the whole Catholic Church, there is not much about him that can be found in the Bible. His death was never mentioned. There is an entry in the Concordance that claim he must have died during the three years of the public ministry of Jesus Christ because of the term that Jesus Christ is the son of a carpenter. If we use that as our yardstick, then Mama Mary was already a widow during the time when Jesus went through with his Passion on the Cross. With the death of Jesus on the Cross, she became a loner. She was only 48 years old when she died. She was wed at 15 yrs and Jesus died at age 33: not so young and not so old. St. Josephs feast day is this coming 19th March. To all graduates of the University of San JoseRecoletos (USJ-R), this day is very memorable because it is its College day. This corner, along with three other brothers was enrolled during its founding in 1946. This year makes it its 68th anniversary. At that time, the school gave free scholarship to one of four brothers who enrol at the same time. The privilege was given to me, but eventually given to my next in line Tony - when I earned my own scholarship on my merits. Tony passed away last year. Bless his soul! Being a Carpenter by profession, it follows that St. Joseph is the Patron Saint for the labor sector. The Church therefore celebrates two masses in honor of St. Joseph on the 19th March and on 1st May.

Perfect Pitch
RANDY JACKSON, former judge of American Idol, used to comment to a contestant that he or she is pitchy. I dont exactly understand what it means but it is obviously not good. Turning to science, researchers have found that a drug known as valproate (or valproic acid) might help people learn how to produce perfect pitch. Besides the assistance valproate could give to The Voice of the Philippines contestants, the study is intriguing because it suggests the adult brain can learn better and faster through drugs that enhance its neuroplasticity. Perfect pitch, which scientists refer to as absolute pitch, is the rare ability to identify or produce the pitch of a musical note without any reference point. Experts believe that the ability to produce absolute pitch may be a genetic trait that must be nurtured through musical training in early childhood or its unlikely to develop. Young children are known to have an unusual degree of neuroplasticity, which enables them to pick up languages and other skills much more easily than adults, play a new musical instrument or learn other new skills. But the latest study into the development of absolute pitch suggests that neuroplasticity isnt necessarily a closed window after childhood, and valproate might help open that window. Valproate belongs to a class of drugs known as histone deacetylase inhibitors. Marketed under the names Depakote, Depacon and Stavzor, valproate has been used for years to treat migraines, epileptic seizures and mood disorders, including bipolar disorder. (The drug is not recommended for women who might be pregnant, because it can cause decreased IQ and other developmental problems in newborns.) Earlier research in rats had suggested that histone deacetylase inhibitors might help the animals recover from neural deficits induced by limiting vision in one eye. The drugs seem to work through epigenetics, the external modifications to DNA that switch certain genes on or off. To build on this earlier research, and to test the hypothesis that psychoactive drugs might enhance neuroplasticity, researchers gathered volunteers and gave them either a placebo or valproate for two weeks. After two weeks of taking either valproate or a placebo, the volunteers were asked to identify pitch tones: Those who had taken valproate learned how to identify absolute pitch and scored significantly higher than those who had taken the placebo. Valproate is a mood-stabilizing drug but it also restores the plasticity of the brain to a juvenile state. This finding suggests that valproate could have some use in teaching adults skills that they would otherwise have difficulty mastering. But the drug has two common side effects stomach pain and rapid hair loss. Perhaps a bit of off key singing is not so bad after all. Besides, the use of any drug to enhance learning by inducing greater neuroplasticity also poses some ethical issues. Critical periods have evolved for a reason, and it is a process that one probably would not want to tamper with carelessly.

The Gospel on Sunday


MARCH 23, 2014 3rd Sunday of Lent John 4: 5 - 15, 19 - 26, 39 - 42 So he came to a city of Samaria, called Sychar, near the field that Jacob gave to his son Joseph. Jacobs well was there, and so Jesus, wearied as he was with his journey, sat down beside the well. It was about the sixth hour. There came a woman of Samaria to draw water. Jesus said to her, Give me a drink. For his disciples had gone away into the city to buy food. The Samaritan woman said to him, How is it that you, a Jew, ask a drink of me, a woman of Samaria? For Jews have no dealings with Samaritans. Jesus answered her, If you knew the gift of God, and who it is that is saying to you, `Give me a drink, you would have asked him, and he would have given you living water. The woman said to him, Sir, you have nothing to draw with, and the well is deep; where do you get that living water? Are you greater than our father Jacob, who gave us the well, and drank from it himself, and his sons, and his cattle? Jesus said to her, Every one who drinks of this water will thirst again, but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst; the water that I shall give him will become in him a spring of water welling

first, a lot of attraction and allurement, until we are so enslaved by it that it would be very difficult for us to detach ourselves from it. Thats why today we have such phenomena as atheism, agnosticism, materialism, and other forms of ungodliness, with their corresponding manifestations, such as, the legalization of abortion, the spreading culture of death, all forms of corruption, etc. This big and open hostility against God and also against our nature always starts in a small, unobtrusive way, cleverly spiced and glibly packaged to grab our attention. We have to be most wary of these little openings to sin by making our conscience more refined and sensitive, and by growing in the virtues. We have to understand that at every point of our life is always a choice between God and ourselves, between God and the devil, between God and the world. We have to be humble enough to choose God always. The humility involved here would lead us to feel the need to continue asking for the grace of God, since without him, we can accomplish nothing that would bring us to our eternal life. The humility involved here would lead us also to trust in God, especially when we see our own weaknesses, mistakes, failures. With such trust, we simply begin and begin again in our struggles.

up to eternal life. The woman said to him, Sir, give me this water, that I may not thirst, nor come here to draw. The woman said to him, Sir, I perceive that you are a prophet. Our fathers worshiped on this mountain; and you say that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship. Jesus said to her, Woman, believe me, the hour is coming when neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem will you worship the Father. You worship what you do not know; we worship what we know, for salvation is from the Jews. But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for such the Father seeks to worship him. God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth. The woman said to him, I know that Messiah is coming (he who is called Christ); when he comes, he will show us all things. Jesus said to her, I who speak to you am he. Many Samaritans from that city believed in him because of the womans testimony, He told me all that I ever did. So when the Samaritans came to him, they asked him to stay with them; and he stayed there two days. And many more believed because of his word. They said to the woman, It is no longer because of your words that we believe, for we have heard for ourselves, and we know that this is indeed the Savior of the world.

MERCADO ... from P. 4


Our so-called food surpluses are a mirage, former FAO agricultural economist Ti Teow Choo stressed. Increase purchasing power of todays poor even marginally. Then, those impressive stockpiles would be bought out overnight by people who needed the food but could not afford it. Government is trying to whittle down the poverty rate from 25 percent in 2012 to 16 percent by 2016. When President Benigno Aquino III steps down, he hopes therell be fuller rice bins. What if Senators Juan Ponce Enrile, Jinggoy Estrada and Bong Revilla funneled their pork chunks to curbing post harvest rice losses, reducing fish and vegetable spoilage? Theyd have had the blessing promised to those who gave the hungry to eat. Instead, they chose to sow the wind with fake NGOs. Ironically, they dont have a clue why theyre reaping the whirlwind of what is a perfect storm.

Locsins Help Rebuild Homes for Ormoc raffle fund-raiser puts roof over the heads of Ormocanons
LAST DECEMBER, Mrs. Paula Locsin-Bondoc, the younger sister of Ormoc Vice-Mayor Toto Locsin Jr., embarked on a fundraising raffle to raise shelter kits for residents of Ormoc. Using the power of social media, Paula spread the word about the fund-raiser through a Facebook page called Help Rebuild Homes for Ormoc. The fund-raising campaign drew the attention of Paulas friends, who donated a variety of prizes to make it more attractive. Tickets were sold at P 500 each. Truly enough, with the attractive prizes up for grabs, the raffle was able to raise an ample amount from the ticket sales. It was held on Jan 18, 2014, a Saturday, at 3:00 PM at the MUNCHTOWN in Greenhills. Immediately, the funds raised were used to buy GI sheets and other building materials to meet the shelter needs of Ormoc residents, which still is a pressing need until now. The Locsin family started distributing the core shel-

If Vice-Mayor Toto Locsin Jr. is not available, his mother, former Ormoc mayor and congresswoman Vicky Locsin takes over the task. The vicemayors staff often assists in the distribution which are done on weekends. On his own, Vice Mayor Toto Locsin Jr. has been generating donations for Ormocanons. He recalls that one of his first acts after Yolanda hit the city was to write letters appealing for seed donations from various companies. A farmer before he joined politics, the vice mayor said he immediately saw by then that one of the pressing need of Ormoc, an agricultural city, was to plant cash crops to augment the income of the farmers whose farms were badly damaged.

TACLOBAN CITY As an advocate on womens welfare, particularly the drive against domestic violence and human trafficking, Councilor Cristina G. Romualdez joins women from all over the world in celebrating Womens Month. On March 8, International Womens Day, the lady councilor kicked off the event with a fun walk around the citys main thoroughfares, followed by a short program at the city hall grounds. This years national theme is, Juana, ang tatag mo ay tatag natin sa pagbangon at pagsulong. In her speech, Councilor Cristina enjoins women to know their rights and empower themselves so as not to be abused. She also urged them to fight for their family rights and welfare. Councilor Romualdez informed them that Tacloban has a shelter home for abused mothers and children, where they can go to in case this happened to them.

Mindoro Oriental Province donates goods, educl supplies to 5 Albuera barangays


ALBUERA, LEYTE The Pro vincial Government of Oriental Mindoro donated relief goods, educational supplies and cash assistance to some barangays in this town on March 8 yet. Leyte Vice Gov. Carlo Loreto said the assistance was personally turned over to 5 barangays in Albuera by Vice Governor Humerlito Bonz Dolor. Dolor, it was learned, spearheaded a fund-raising fun run in their province called the KKK Run Adopt-a-Community and chosen as lucky recipient were the Albuera villages. The proceeds of the fun run, said Loreto, was used by the vicegovernor to buy relief goods and books and school supplies which were distributed to elementary pupils. In Cambalading, the vicegovernor also turned over P 10,000 to the school principal to help repair their facilities, and another P 10,000 to the barangay. Loreto said Dolor told him the cash was a prize his wife won as matron queen which she wanted to be donated to a deserving community. The Oriental Mindoro vice-governor and Loreto was received to Albuera by councilors Cathy Tolero and Dr. Rodanimod Cayanong and the village chairmen since other councilors were in Manila that time to attend the Philippine Councilors League national assembly.

The number is based on the registered fisherfolks who lost their bancas and boats to Yolanda. At first, it seemed a mission impossible but as things shaped up, we called it Mission Possible, she said. Present during the turnover were officers of the Rotary Club of South Makati led by their president Ritz Estorco. His party included past presidents Lito Panlilio, Louie Vega, Dars Padilla, Pocholo Chunsim and Bobon Topacio. Also present were Richard Gomez and his incumbent Liberal Party mates Vice Mayor Leo Carmelo Locsin Jr., city councilors Roland Villasencio, Tommy Serafica, Mario Rodriguez, Bennet Pongos Jr., Vincent Rama and Gerry Penserga. Club members also admitted being touched by the emotional moment. Ritz Estorco told the The Star that while he did not want to promise, he would look into their club funds if they can afford to give the fishermen the nets they needed. The fishermen said it would cost around P 5,000 each at local prices. In his speech before the fishermen, Estorco admonished them to take care of their boats well. He added it was their clubs way of helping, not by giving them fish but teaching them how to fish. Vice Mayor Leo Carmelo Toto Jr. Locsin, on the other hand, urged the recipients to make good use of the boats at once. You will not only be helping your families but with more supply in the market, your catch can help bring down the prices of fish, he said. Price of fish here, especially the good ones, ballooned to almost P 300 a kilo after Yolanda.

that we are lucky that with the delay in buying the larvicide, that the dengue strain that we have here in Ormoc is the least virulent or vicious kind. Now, there is one fatality. I dont know if he knows this already but the victim reportedly comes from Bagong Buhay, which is a top notcher in the dengue stats. I was bothered by the information I heard. It behooves me that a simple thing as buying the larvicide has been delayed and its application has become a complicated matter. Why do I say this? Let me give you a short history on Temephos application. The larviciding activity was introduced in Ormoc by the two Rotary Clubs in July. Actual implementation was August 17. With a combined membership of around 50 members (not all of who really joined the actual applications), the two clubs were able to effectively apply larvicide on Ormocs top 10 dengue afflicted barangays. The first activity was a success as cases dropped dramatically in the said barangays. Before it was done, however, Rotary members of both clubs, especially doctors, went around to deliver lectures to barangay officials on what the activity was all about, why it was important and more importantly, how it was to be done properly so that the larvicides would not be wasted and for it to be effective. The gains of the August larvicide applications, however, would be diminished after Yolanda hit the city. With lots of debris and areas where water pooled, it was a dengue mosquitos dream come true. On December 24, with the use of Temephos left over from the August activity, the city health reportedly went larviciding. It was a careless decision, apparently, because it was very wet by then and always raining, which probably diluted the effect of the larvicide. Hence, cases spiked on January. As a Rotarian, I can only ask, why do we have to hire 100 people? Why cant we appeal on the spirit of volunteerism of our barangay people, after all the life we might save from the activity might be theirs? Why is it that until now, LGSP-LED is supporting NW we havent bought Temephos? Leyte in developing its tourism Bobong Castillo of IPI is willing to send over the larvicide industry recovery plan which to Ormoc, even if there is no aims to reopen the Ormoc payment yet, as long as there Airport to commercial flights is the presence of Rotary in as a gateway to NW Leyte. The the activity. plan will serve as a guide and And as these things are tool that LGUs, private sector, dilly-dallied, how many deaths and other tourism stakeholders do we need to register from can use to coordinate and fast dengue to hasten things up. We track economic recovery in are not saying larviciding is the NW Leyte. end all and be all of dengue, LGSP-LED is a DILG but isnt it time that we exhaust program funded by the Gov- all possible measures to stem ernment of Canada. It seeks the infection? I also hope that whoever is to reduce poverty by creating business-friendly LGUs and handling the purchase docucompetitive tourism indus- ments would realize that the next dengue victim could be tries. PR him or her or a loved one.
