PAL nangako
Airline gumawa na ng hakbang mapigil pagbibitiw ng mga piloto
Ni Paolo G. Montecillo

UMILOS na ang Philippine Airlines (PAL) upang mapigil ang karagdagang pagbibitiw ng mga piloto nito sa isang pangakong wala sa mga nananatiling piloto nito ang ililipat sa kapatid ng PAL na Air Philippines, isang budget airline.
Ilang biyahe nito ang nakansela dahil sa pagbibitiw ng dalawang dosenang piloto. Sinabi ng Department of Transportation and Communications (DOTC) noong Huwebes na naghain ang PAL ng talaan ng pangako nitong naglalayong mapigil ang paglipat ng mga piloto nito. Sinabi ni Transportation Undersecretary Dante Velasco na “very determined step to end PAL problems with its pi’s lots” ang pangako ng PAL na huwag ilipat ang mga piloto nito sa Air Philippines. Nangako rin ang PAL na maglalathala ng arawang talaan ng biyahe upang matiyak

K

na maipababatid sa mga apektadong pasahero ang mga pagbabago sa mga booking nila. Nangako rin ang PAL na magiging bukas ang komunikasyon sa mga piloto, na hindi tulad ng ibang empleyado nito, ay walang unyon. Ipakikita sa Pangulo ang mga pangako ng PAL, na bunga ng serye ng mga pulong sa mga opisyal ng DOTC. Sinabi ni Velasco na nagugat ang mga pangako sa “realization” ng PAL sa pangangailangang gawing bukas ang komunikasyon sa mga piloto at ibang empleyado nito.

THE PHILIPPINE DAILY INQUIRER yesterday announced that ABC, which is managed by businessman Manuel V. Pangilinan, had bought a 10-percent stake in the INQUIRER. The 10-percent stake represents the equity of the Ben Pangilinan and Pat Garcia families in the company. The INQUIRER announcement follows: “After two decades of productive partnership with the PHILIPP I N E D A I LY I N Q U I R E R , the Ben Pangilinan and Pat Garcia families have decided to sell their equity in the company. As a result, Associated Broadcasting Co. (ABC), which owns TV5 and other stations, has bought a 10percent stake in the I NQUIRER . ABC’s purchase of the shares, which entitles them to one of the nine seats in the board of directors, was finalized on Wednesday. “The I NQUIRER would like to thank the Pangilinan and Garcia families for helping steady the company’s course through the years, toward the achievement of its vision-mission. We also welcome the entry of ABC, now under the management of businessman Manuel V. Pangilinan. “While ABC will have no involvement in the operations of the news organization, we are confident that our new partners will be equally steadfast stewards of the editorial independence and proven business model that the I NQUIRER is known for. “The Prieto family, which retains majority control, reiterates its long-term commitment to the INQUIRER.”

P112M ng kontrata sa Tesda pinakansela ng bagong hepe

Desk editors

HINDI pa man nag-iinit sa puwesto, kinansela ng bagong director general ng Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (Tesda) ang mga pagbiling nagkakahalagang P112 milyon at pinasisilip ang may P1-bilyong halaga ng utang umano ng ahensya sa ilang training center at paaralan para sa mga scholarship.
Sinabi sa INQUIRER kahapon ni Joel Villanueva, dating kinatawan ng Cibac party-list group at kilalang kritiko ng administrasyong Arroyo, na hindi bababa sa dalawang kasunduang sobra sa presyo ang natuklasan niya. Unang kinansela ni Villanueva, bagong hepe ng Tesda, ang P73-milyong pagbili sa mga kompyuter, laptop at ibang elec-

tronic components para sa proyektong e-Tesda. “We saw that there was huge overpricing ... P10 million at least,” aniya. Napansin din ni Villanueva ang P39-milyong kasunduan para sa kagamitan sa pagsasanay. Sa ilalim nito P14,400 ang presyo ng isang dough cutter na mabibili lang nang P120. Pinasisilip din niya ang P1bilyong utang ng Tesda sa mga training center at partner school bilang scholarship.

Anim na buwan di makapasok sa Senado si Miriam
INABISUHAN ni Sen. Miriam Defensor Santiago si Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile na liliban muna siya nang ilang buwan sa senado matapos siyang makitaan ng sakit na hypothyroidism. “This disease produces extreme tiredness. It is expected that after medication, recovery will take a few weeks at least, or even six months at worst,” sinabi ni Santiago sa liham niya noong Agosto 5. Humiling si Santiago na markahan na lang siyang “on sick leave” at hindi “absent” tuwing mananawagan ng roll call. Sinabi ni Santiago, na itinalagang mamumuno sa constitutional amendments, na mananatili lang siya sa kanyang tahanan habang nagpapahinga. Gil Cabacungan

NEWS Buong Hacienda Luisita ang hangad ng mga union dito

BINASURA ng mga opisyal ng unyon na kumakatawan umano sa mga magsasaka sa Hacienda Luisita kahapon ang anumang kasunduang magbibigay sa kanila ng katlo sa plantasyon ng tubong pag-aari ng pamilya ni Pangulong Aquino.
“We want all the 4,915 hectares that the [Department of Agrarian Reform] ordered to be covered by the [Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program] in 2006,” ani Lito Bais, acting president ng United Luisita Workers Union (Ulwu). Kaugnay ito ng ulat ng INQUIRER na nakipagkasundo ang Hacienda Luisita Inc. (HLI) sa mga kinatawan ng apat na unyon sa plantasyon kung saan papipiliin ang mga manggagawa kung pananatilihin ang taglay na sapi sa ilalim ng stock distribution option (SDO) o piraso mula sa 1,400 ektaryang lupa na nakalaang ipamahagi. Sinabi ni Bais na “no negotiation” ang nagaganap sa pagitan ng Ulwu at mga Cojuangco. Tinuligsa rin ng pangkat na FARM Luisita ang pagpapanatili ng HLI sa SDO. Sinabi nitong upang matapos ang kahirapan at gutom ay dapat ipamahai ng HLI ang lupain at magbigay ng suporta ang pamahalaan. TO, KLA, MLU

May namumuo pang 2 labor problem ang PAL
MAGIGING abala ang Philippine Airlines (PAL) sa isang linggo sa pagharap nito sa dalawang nakabinbing gusot sa mga unyon ng mga flight attendant at ground crew. Inamin noong Miye r k u l e s n g M a l acañang, na namamagitan sa sigalot sa pagitan ng PAL at 25 na nagbitiw na piloto nito, na baka hindi malutas ang gusot ngayong linggo, kaya magiging tatlo ang suliraning panggawa na haharapin ng PAL sa darating na mga araw.

Bomba sumabog sa Zamboanga airport
ZAMBOANGA City— Sugatan sina Sulu Gov. Abdusakur Tan at 10 iba pa nang sumabog ang isang bomba sa arrival area ng Zamboanga International Airport kagabi, ayon sa mga opisyal. Isang tao ang naiulat na nasawi sa pagsabog 6:15 ng gabi sa bisperas ng pagdalaw sa lungsod na ito ni US Ambassador Harry Thomas. Bahagyang nasakt a n s i Ta n n g u n i t “OK,” sinabi ni Mayor Celso Lobregat sa INQUIRER . “I saw and I was able to speak to him. He just suffered minor injuries,” aniya. Sinabi ng alkalde na hindi bababa sa 10 katao ang sinugod sa pagamutan upang lunasan ang pinsala sa katawan. Sinabi ni Col. Santiago Baluyot, hepe ng Task Force Zamboanga, na isang “antipersonnel improvised explosive device” ang sanhi ng pagsabog. Nakatakdang dumalaw si Thomas ngayong araw sa mga proyekto sa lungsod na pinondohan ng Estados Unidos, sinabi ni Lt. Gen. Benjamin Dolorfino, pinuno ng Western Mindanao Command ng militar. “I don’t know if the embassy will push through with the visit.” Nakatakdang pumunta sina Thomas at Gloria Steele, bagong direktor ng US Agency for International Development, sa Halfway House, na magkatuwang na pinatatakbo ng Visayan Forum Foundation (VFF), at Philippine Ports Authority.

Lady Gaga’s creative outlet – down there
US POP STAR Lady Gaga is known for skimpy outfits and sexually-charged performances, but she says she fears having sex could deplete her artistic energy. “I have this weird thing that if I sleep with someone they’re going to take my creativity through my vagina,” the performer said in an interview with Vanity Fair magazine that was released on Monday. Lady Gaga is not the only pop star to laud abstinence. Miley Cyrus, the Jonas Brothers and American Idol winner Jordin Sparks have worn “promise rings” to symbolize a pledge of chastity GAGA until marriage. Reuters

ARA magampanan ng maigi ang kanyang papel sa bago niyang pelikula sa Regal na Mamarazzi, nag-aral pang mag-ice skate ang pinaka-hot na comedienne ng bansa na si Eugene Domingo.
abo rin sa takilya na Working Girls 2 at Here Comes the Bride. Paano niya pinananatiling sariwa ang kanyang pagpapatawa? “I always experiment. I collaborate with various writers and directors. In this movie, I’m very fortunate to work with Ricky Lee, Chris Violago, Manny Valera and Direk Joel Lamangan,” sabi niya. Kakaiba ang kanyang role (pakialamerang ina sa kanyang triplets) sa mga dati na niyang ginagampanan, aniya, at sinadya niyang magkaroon ng unusual look. “I’m wearing a l-o-n-g wig,” aniya. Kabilang si Uge sa mga bihirang talento na maaaring magtrabaho sa tatlong network. May dalawang show siya sa GMA 7 (Wachamakulit at Comedy Bar), isang sitcom sa TV5 (Inday Wanda) at dalawang pelikula sa Metro Manila Film Fest sa ilalim ng sangay na pampelikula ng ABS-CBN na Star Cinema (para sa animated fantasy na RPG at ang prangkisang Tanging Ina 3: Last Na ’To). “I’m naturally independent,” paliwanag niya. “I’ve been living on my own since college. I value my freedom. At work, I find fulfillment when I can work with all kinds of

“Wow! It was not easy. But it’s always exciting to learn something new,” sabi ni Eugene, na mas kilala sa tawag na Uge. “I’ve been a fan of Pinoy movies ever since I can remember,” sabi niya. Bahagi ng kanyang kabataan ang mga peikula ng Regal noong 1980. “I loved the movies of Dina Bonnevie, Snooky and Maricel Soriano. I have a long way to go before I can stand shoulderto-shoulder with these Regal babies, but to be part of Regal’s anniversary is a dream-come-true,” sabi ni Uge. Hindi na niya maalala kung ilang pelikula na sa Regal ang nagawa na niya pero kabilang sa mga ito ang Shake, Rattle & Roll trilogies (8 and 9), Bahay Kubo, at ang My Monster Mom ngunit sa Mamarazzi ang unang pagkakataon niya bilang bida. Muntik na siyang hindi mabigyan ng malaking break dahil nagkaroon sila ng bahagyang hindi pagkakaintindihan ng prodyuser na si Lily Monteverde sa hindi pagsama ni Uge sa Desperadas 2 noong 2008. “Mother Lily was kind enough to … not give up on me,” aniya. “I believe Mamarazzi is the right project at the right time, so it’s better to not dwell on the past.” Tuluy-tuloy ang suwerte para kay Uge. Biglang kumita ang kanyang Kimmy Dora na sinundan pa nga mag-back-to-back na mga pelikulang tum-

Nakatrabaho na niya ang ilan sa mga pinakamakikinang na bituin ng indutriya, ngunit pangarap pa rin ni Uge makasama ang mga “greatest” tulad nina Nora Aunor, Vilma Santos at siyempre, si Dolphy.

Aljur ‘intimidated’ by Rhian
By Dolly Anne Carvajal
I TURNED into a high school girl when I met Aljur Abrenica for the first time. He’s even more gorgeous in person. Isn’t he wary that he might get into trouble with DJ Mo if he gets closer than close to his new leading lady, Rhian Ramos? “Di ko ata kayang ligawan si Rhian,” he explained. “Dyahe ako sa kaniya. I’m intimidated. So no way na magclash kami ni Mo. But I hope mag-click ang experimental team-up namin.” Doesn’t he miss his love team with Kris Bernal? “Of course I do,” he said. “But mabuti na rin di kami matali sa isa’t isa. Para we can spread our horizons. But in time, gagawa kami uli ng project together.” Is it true that he’s courting Kim Chiu? “Nagulat ako when that news came out,” he said. “It’s not true at all, though I’ve met Kim and Gerald na. Gerald is inviting me to play basketball with him. Friends kami. Network lang naman ang may rivalry.” Ah, the allure of Aljur. I better stop blushing now. I was floored when a very popular TV host told me that he’s two steps away from becoming an atheist. I snapped back: “Aren’t you thankful for all the good breaks coming your way?” He retorted, “Screw that!” Faith is a personal thing. I don’t want to sound holierthan-thou. But I hope the host realizes that he should never be too busy counting his money to count his blessings. The midget comedian-actor Mura was moved to tears when Willie Revillame relayed a message through Tita Cristy Fermin in Paparazzi: Willy said he will shoulder all the medical expenses of Mura, who had figured in a vehicular accident. As the family breadwinner,

Mura wants to recover soon so he can go back to work. It was Willie who discovered Mura and gave him a big break in the defunct “Magandang Tanghali Bayan.” Even now that “Wowowee” has folded up, Willie continues to work wonders. His generosity isn’t coterminous with his show. The popular animated series Avatar: The Legend of Aang is now on ABS-CBN.

What it takes to be a kampante mommy
RAISING children who turn out to be well-rounded individuals and ready to conquer the world give mothers the feeling of contentment and confidence, or in local term — kampante. Train kids to have the initiative to help out with different household chores and to live by good values whether inside or outside the home. Inspire them to wake up early in time for school, dress up properly, and still go home with enough energy to finish their assignments. Expose the kids to a world of activities beyond the four walls of the home. Let them gain new friends and acquire new skills they will need in life. Allow them to step out of the house and to learn to be responsible for the decisions they make and the actions they take. A well-balanced diet is also a key to bring a truly kampante mommy. Seeing the children at the pink of their health eases a mother’s busy mind from additional stress caused by fear of encountering poor health and possible sickness. Make sure you serve the right food to boost their body and mind. Prepare exciting meals that kids will look forward to and will eat over and over again with much gusto and delight. Kampante mommies like to serve something as appealing and nutritious as Argentina Corned Beef. It is the only corned beef readily available in the market fortified with zinc and iron, making it the food with the right ingredients for kids to love and moms to appreciate. Make a conscious choice to be a kampante mommy starting now. Give your children a fine upbringing firmly rooted in good values and take advantage of the best deal when it comes to the right food for children with Argentina Corned Beef, available in supermarkets and convenience stores nationwide.

12 pieces shelled. deveined prawns with tail on 6 slices fish fillets (asohos) 6 slices squid 6 pieces okra 1 small eggplant, sliced crosswise 6 pieces baguio beans, cut into 2 inch length 1 small sweet potato, strips 1 small carrot, strips 1 piece onion white, sliced BATTER: 1 cup iced cold water 1 cup all purpose flour 1/8 teaspoon baking powder 1 piece eggyolk Dash of Aji-no-moto Umami Seasoning TEMPURA SAUCE: 1 cup water 1/2 teaspoon dashi 1/4 cup soy sauce 1/4 cup mirin 2 tablespoon sugar 1/4 teaspoon AJI-NO-MOTO® Umami Seasoning 2 teaspoons radish, grated 1 teaspoon ginger, grated 2. To prepare the batter, put egg yolk with ice cold water and baking powder in a mixing bowl. Sift in flour and mix well with a wooden spoon. (The batter should be somewhat thin and watery, and run easily off the spoon. If too thick, thin it with drops of cold water.

Next-gen fridge sets standard for energy savings
REFRIGERATORS can be responsible for as much as 20 percent of a household’s annual energy costs. Factor in things like age, inefficient temperatures, and ozone-depleting CFC refrigerants, and the trusty, indispensable fridge soon turns into a clunky, space-consuming, energyguzzling household appliance. Unless it’s a Panasonic Style Vegerator—a refrigerator that saves energy. Panasonic has launched a next-generation series of twodoor refrigerators that guarantee top levels in eco-friendly performance and energy savings. Called the Style Vegerator, and available in two CFC-free models (the NR-BY601V and NR-BY551V), these refrigerators incorporate Panasonic’s patented Intelligent Inverter—an advanced power control technology that can reduce energy consumption by up to 40 percent. The Style Vegerator also uses R600a, a CFC-free refrigerant that has been proven to have minimal impact on the ozone layer and global warming. The two models of the Style Vegerator series also use smart design features to complement Panasonic’s intelligent refrigerator technologies. The Panasonic Style Vegerator has been designed to set new standards not just in daily energy savings but in greener home living as well.

BEERMEN PABORITO

Aces palaban

ANDA ang Alaska Aces na sagutin ang isa na namang hamon sa PBA Fiesta Conference. Haharapin ng Aces ang paboritong San Miguel Beermen sa simula ngayon ng best-of-seven title series sa Araneta Coliseum.
MGA LARO NGAYON (Araneta Coliseum) 5 p.m.—Derby Ace vs Talk ‘N Text (Ikatlong puwesto) 7:30 p.m.—San Miguel vs Alaska

“I asked them (players) if they were ready to go another two-and-a-half weeks of this again,” sabi ni Alaska coach Tim Cone matapos talunin ng Aces ang Talk ‘N Text Miyerkules sa Game 7 ng semifinals. “We went through the gauntlet against (Barangay) Ginebra (in the quarterfinals) and we went through the gauntlet again against Talk ‘N Text (in the semis).” “And the guys just told me that they are willing to go through the gauntlet again against San Miguel.”

Hindi pa nananalo ang Aces kontra Beermen sa anim laro sa Fiesta Conference sa tatlong seasons. Haharapin rin ni Cone si coach Siot Tanquincen na hindi pa natatalo sa tatlong finals. “It’s a great record and I wish I had it myself,” ani Cone. “But when you get to the finals, you have a whole new mental and physical level. We’re ready.”

Eagles, Falcons dominate foes
By Jasmine W. Payo
ATENEO made sure there will be no upset this time as the Blue Eagles crushed the University of the Philippines Maroons, 78-53, to gain a share of second place in the 73rd UAAP men’s basketball tournament yesterday at the Araneta Coliseum. The Blue Eagles pulled away early, erecting a 38-25 halftime lead with a closing 20-6 outburst, before building a 24point bubble in the third quarter, 52-28. Adamson also controlled the game early in turning back struggling University of the East, 69-56, to make it a threeway tie for second place, including idle De La Salle, at 4-2. The Warriors dropped to 1-5, while the Maroons stayed winless in six outings.

‘Malas’
BAGO nag-start ang kasalukuyang PBA Fiesta Conference, sinasabing ang Talk N’ Text na marahil ang tatanghaling kampeon dahil sa kumpleto o walang vacuum kuno ang line up nila. Sa salita ng mga mahilig sa basketbol na nakatambay sa kanto , kumpletong-kumpleto o walang pagdaanan ng hangin ang players ng Texters. Pero kamakalawa ng gabi, baka hinimatay si Talk N’ Text owner Manny V Pangilinan ng . makita kung paano kinain ng buong-buo ng Alaska Milk ang kanyang walang kasing lakas na team. Sa maikling salita “outplayed” talaga ang Texters ni coach Chot Reyes. Marahil hindi maubos maisip ni coach Chot kung paanong talong-talo sila ng sinasabing underdog na Milkmen. Siguro, matapos ang game at

600
HAWAK ni Alex Rodriguez ng New York Yankees ang bolang hinataw upang makuha ang kanyang ika-600 career home run sa Yankee Stadium sa New York City. Isang two-run home run sa first inning kontra Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Shaun Marcum ang ginawa ni Rodriguez. Si Rodriguez, 35, ang pinakabatang manlalaro sa Major League na naabot ang 600. “Today was a special day,” sabi ni Rodriguez. Nagwagi ang Yankees, 5-1. AFP

makuha ng Milkmen ang karapatang harapin sa finals ang San Miguel eh sumigaw ng “Tagumpay!” si Wilfred Uytengsu na noong isang araw ay galit na galit at balitang hinamon nang “babag” (suntukan) ang isang player ng Talk n’ Text. Pero kung may dapat na kabahan sa hindi sukat akalaing pagkatalo ng Texters sa Milkmen kamakalawa ng gabi ay walang iba kundi si coach Chot Reyes. Bagaman, sinasabing tsismis lang, kumakalat na ang balita na kapag hindi nag-deliver si Chot this conference ay “good riddance” na siya .

In short “tsugi” na! Bago nga ginanap ang Texters-Milkmen winner-take-all showdown ay kumakalembang na sa ilang peryodiko ang mga pangalan ng makakapalit ni coach ni Chot. Baka dahil nga sa balitang papalitan na siya kaya galit na galit si coach Chot sa isa sa mga player niya. Ewan ko kung bakit siya galit na galit!. Huwag kang magalit coach sa player mo, sana Lumingon ka ’dun sa lugar na inu-upuan ng mga supporters ng Talk n’ Text at baka sakaling natanaw mo doon ang “malas” na nanood ng gabing iyon. Pambihira daw manood ’yung taong ’yun at natiyempong crucial ang laban ng Texters kaya hayun natalo tuloy! Ang sinasabi kong tao ay si….. as in talagang maraming nabubuwisit sa kanya!
