ITIYAKIN ng Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB) na mga “wholesome” na pelikula lang ang ipalalabas sa mga public utility vehicle (PUV) sa Semana Santa.
lang ang “PG.” Tatlong bus—Erjohn and Almark, Baes at Alfonso Liner—ang natuklasang nagpapalabas ng mga bidyo na walang rating, kaya kinumpiska ang mga materyal. Siniyasat din ng MTRCB ang mga ferry boat at pasilidad nila sa North Harbor Port sa Maynila. Nauna nang nagsiyasat ang MTRCB sa Maynila sa mga terminal ng Dangwa, Fariñas Transit at RCJ. May kasunduan ang MTRCB sa Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board upang bantayan ang mga uri ng pelikulang pinalalabas sa mga PUV .

Noong Lunes ng umaga, nagsagawa ang mga opisyal at kawani ng MTRCB, sa pangunguna ng chair na si Eugenio “Toto” Villareal, ng biglaang pagsisiyasat sa mga bus at sa mga pasilidad sa Southwest Integrated Provincial Transport terminal sa Coastal Mall, Parañaque City. Bahagi ito ng patuloy na hakbang na nagpapaalala sa mga tsuper at opereytor ng mga PUV na mga pelikulang binigyan ng MTRCB ng rating na “G” o “PG” lang ang ipalalabas. Para sa lahat ang “G” habang kailangan ng patnubay ng magu-

Saan ka pupunta facebook. sa Semana Santa, com/inquirer tanong ni Bishop libre
SINABI ni Lingayen-Dagupan Archbishop Socrates Villegas na dapat katukin ng mga magbabakasyon ngayong Semana Santa ang kani-kanilang mga konsensya. “The best place to make a pilgrimage is not even a church. The best place to go is your conscience and allow the voice of right and wrong to prevail,” ani Villegas, pangulo ng Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP), sa isang panayam ng mga reporter. Pagpapatuloy niya: “The way to your conscience is by solitude... and then asking yourself, ‘How does God [see] me?’ How God [sees] you is [what] you really are, because what you do when no one sees you is [what] you really are.” Pinaalalahanan din niya ang mga nananampalataya na “the Christian life is always [about] prayer, sacrifice and charity before Lent, after Lent and during Lent. This is 365 days.” Dinagdag niya: “Outside Lent—during Easter, during Christmas—we should still be praying, sacrificing and doing charity for others.” JR Uy

Bukas, gagapang trapik sa Edsa
Ni Niña P. Calleja

MAGSISIMULA alas-2 ng hapon ng Miyerkules Santo, sa halip na alas-10 ngayong gabi, ang pagkukumpuni at concrete reblocking sa 94 bahagi ng Edsa.
Sa mungkahi ng mga provincial bus operator, nilipat ng Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) ang iskedyul, kaya may 16 oras ng “elbow room” para sa libu-libong motoristang inaasahang aalis ng kabisera ngayong bakasyon ng Mahal na Araw. Hinayag ni MMDA Chair Francis Tolentino noong Lunes na kukumpunihin ng Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) ang southbound lane ng Edsa mula Miyerkules Santo hanggang Biyernes Santo. Northbound lane naman ang gagawin mula Biyernes Santo hanggang alas-5 ng madaling-araw ng Lunes. Ginawa ang pag-usog sa iskedyul makaraan ang pulong ng mga opisyal ng MMDA at mga provincial bus operator sa tanggapan ng ahensya noong Lunes, bago ang malawakang pagkukumpuni na inaasahang magdudulot ng pagbigat sa daloy ng trapiko sa pinakaa-

balang kalsada sa Kamaynilaan sa panahon ng Semana Santa. “We are giving them 16 hours to enter and exit Metro Manila through the South Luzon Expressway and North Luzon Expressway [without] engineering obstructions,” ani Tolentino. Dinagdag niyang tig-isang lane lang ang magiging bukas sa Magallanes Interchange at sa Pasay Road sa Semana Santa. Samantala, sinabi naman ni Tolentino sa mga opereytor ng mga bus panlalawigan na “there is no number-coding starting Tuesday but there is no road space for your additional buses because of the reblocking projects.”

‘Tilacharon’ da bes na pulutan
SCIENCE City of Muñoz— Madali nang maiwasan ang katakam-takam na chicharon ngayong Semana Santa sa pamamagitan ng “tilacharon” na mula sa balat ng tilapia. “We offer tilacharon as a healthy substitute for the traditional cholesterol-packed pork cracklings,” ani Dr. Tereso Abella, direktor ng Freshwater Aquaculture Center ng Central Luzon State University (CLSU-FAC) dito. Pinag-aralan ni Abella, sa tulong ni Dr. Ravelina Velasco ng FAC, ang paggamit sa balat ng tilapia bilang chicharon at inulat ang resulta sa Philippine Council for Agriculture, Aquatic and Natural Resources Research and Development kamakailan. “It can be a substitute pulutan to go with beer, wine or any other alcoholic or nonalcoholic beverage, or eaten like the regular pork chicharon,” aniya. Patok daw ito sa mga magaaral, ayon sa CLSU College of Fisheries. Anselmo Roque

Truck, bus bawal pa rin dumaan sa Quiapo bridge
BAWAL pa ring dumaan sa Quezon Bridge sa Quiapo, Maynila, ang mabibigat na sasakyan, kabilang ang mga cargo truck at pampasaherong bus, habang tinutukoy pa ng mga opisyal ang integridad ng istruktura na humina dahil sa sunog noong Abril 10. May sumiklab na sunog sa isang maralitang pamayanan sa ilalim ng Quezon Bridge sa kaagahan ng buwang ito, kaya pinagdudahan ang integridad ng istruktura. Pinayuhan ng Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) ang mga nagmamaneho ng mabibigat na sasakyan na dumaan sa ibang ruta sapagkat bukas lang ang tulay sa magagaang sasakyan sa utos ng Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH). Sinabi ni Neomie Recio, pinuno ng MMDA Traffic Engineering Center, na maaari nilang gamitin ang ibang mga tulay sa Maynila tulad ng Jones, MacArthur at Ayala. Sinabi ni Recio na maaaring magtagal ang pababawal sa mabibigat na sasakyan, na nakasalalay sa tagal ng pagkukumpuni ng DPWH sa tulay. Nagbabala rin siya na bibigat ang daloy ng trapiko sa tatlong tulay habang ipinatutupad ang pagbabawal. Ani Recio, dalawang traffic enforcer na ang tinalaga sa lugar upang tiyaking walang mabigat na sasakyang dadaan sa Quezon Bridge. Ayon sa MMDA, 2,000 pampasaherong bus ang dumadaan dito araw-araw.

N observance of Holy Monday, allow me to shut out the noise of the show biz circus for a while, so that we will be able to not just hear, but also listen to God’s word. I asked some celebs for their favorite Bible verses and how these have impacted their lives.
Mine is Matthew 6:25-27: “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?” That passage never fails to make me snap out of panic mode when uncertainty strikes. Whatever Calvary you are going through, read the Bible for instant relief. Turn your “OMG!” shrieks of disbelief into “OHG!” (Oh, Holy God) vows of adoration.

2 Corinthians 12: 9: “But He said to me, My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” My bout with GuillainBarré syndrome last October was the best thing that happened to me. It was when I was in the ICU, waiting for total paralysis to set in, that I realized I was totally powerless. All my power comes from God. The Ironman [marathon] mantra, “I can,” was suddenly meaningless. I knew in my heart that only God can! That has been my new mantra since then. I need nothing…only His grace is enough. 2013 was the year when I discovered Jesus Christ.

Matthew 5: 23-24: “So if you are offering your gift at the altar and remember that your brother has something against you, leave your gift before the altar and go. First be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift.” In the course of my journey through life, I have encountered and, for sure, will continue to experience many hurts. I used to be unforgiving, or I found it difficult to forget. But I’ve come to realize that I cannot expect God, who is all-loving and merciful, to forgive my sins unless I, in turn, forgive those who have offended me. When you’re angry at someone, you’re the one that gets hurt. Holding a grudge is a burden

Hebrews 13:5: “Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, ‘Never will I leave you nor forsake you.’” Sometimes we get too attached to money and material things. Life is not just about these things. Through the love of God, we can get everything we want in life. We just have to work hard and never give up. And leave the rest up to Him.

Jovie Saulog walang kupas
NAGPAKITANG-GILAS si 7-time Rider of the Year Jovie Saulog sa Pro Open Production ng 2014 Mx Messiah Fairgrounds Motocross Race noong linggo sa Cauayan, Isabela. Sa kabila ng edad, hindi nagpahuli si Saulog, 48, kontra sa mas batang na sina Jenzen Manuel, 21, at Jacob Orbe, 17, na kinuha ang ikalawa at ikatlong puwesto. Pinagharian ni Saulog ang banner event matapos angkinin ang race track sa loob ng 15 laps sa moto 1 at 10 laps sa moto 2. Matinding gitgitan ang nasaksihan sa labang ipinanalo ni Manuel kontra kay Orbe sa parehong moto 1 at moto 2 ng Pro Lites. ‘‘I was expecting to get better results but my performance was a bit off. I experienced some technical difficulties. I need to step up, train harder and do better in order to get the results I desire next race,” sabi ni Orbe. Siksik sa tensiyon ang bakbakan sa Amateur Open Production na pinangunahan ni Joemari Galan laban kina Kristopher Bancud at Jordan Herrera. Sinabayan ng mga chikiting ang pagharurot kung saan hinakot ni Ompong Gabriel ang Kids 65cc at Kids 85cc. Samantala, nagpasubok ang host isponsor Ropali ng bagong labas CPI GRX 250 para sa mga lokal ng Isabela. Dinomina ni John Delos Santos ang kategorya at nag-uwi ng P5,000.00 cash at t-shirt mula sa Ropali. Ilan din sa mga nagpamalas ng galing ay sina Bryant Villaroman ng Pro Local Enduro, Edison Ngo ng Executive category, Janelle Saulog ng Ladies category, Jef Suet ng Honda XRM Local Region at XRM Pro Underbone, Galan ng All China bikes, at Jimcee Balutoc ng Amateur Local Enduro Local Region.

AGO harapin ang kasunod kalaban, dapat ayusin ni Pinoy ring hero Manny Pacquiao ang problema niya sa Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) sa pangunguna ni Commissioner Kim Henares.
Pinaalalahanan ni Henares sa dzMM radio kahapon ang WBO welterweight champion na ayusin ang pagkukulang sa buwis na aabot sa P2.1 bilyon sa pagtatapos ng Disyembre 2012. Diniin ni Henares na hindi kasama sa nasabing pagtantya ng bayarin ang mga interes. Bago ang laban ni Pacquiao kay Bradley ay pinaalalahanan ni Henares ang pambansang kamao na huwag kalimutan magbayad ng buwis. Umani ito ng kritisismo mula sa mga miron kabilang si Top Rank promoter Bob Arum na sinabing makagugulo sa isipan ng kanyang alagad ang pahayag ni Henares.
