Day 1 na ng K+12
Ni Niña Calleja
IWANAN na ng Pilipinas ang reputasyon bilang natatanging bansa sa Asya na may 10-taong antas ng batayang edukasyon at papasok sa sistemang tinatawag na “K + 12” ngayong araw na ipatutupad sa pamamagitan ng “creative tutoring” sa harap ng mga kakulangan at mga pagdududa hinggil sa programa.

Ngunit hinayag ng DepEd na naplantsa na lahat ng gusot sa pagsalubong sa may 21 milyong magaaral sa mga pampublikong paaralan sa buong bansa ngayong araw. “As we implement the new K to 12 curriculum for Grade 1 and Grade 7 this school year, we made sure that public elementary and secondary schools across the country are ready for the school opening,” pahayag ni Education Secretary Armin Luistro kahapon. Sa bagong sistema, Grade 7 ang itatawag sa dating first year high school. May junior high school—Grade 7 hanggang 10—at senior high school—Grade 11 hanggang 12.

Nagpapatuloy ang mga lumang suliranin: kakulangan sa silid-aralan at siksikan at, sa ilang lugar, pag-aaral sa ilalim ng mga puno o sa mga paaralang binabaha. Pinarating ng pangkat party-list na Alliance of Concerned Teachers (ACT) ang pagtutol sa bagong programa at hiniling sa Department of Education (DepEd) na lutasin muna ang krisis sa kakulangan sa mga guro, silid-aralan, kalinisan sa mga pasilidad, at ibang pangangailangan sa mga paaralan bago sumabak sa K to 12. “There is no law yet authorizing the implementation of the full K to 12 education program. The curriculum is not yet ready. Funds are insufficient to cover the basic inputs such as shortages on teachers, classrooms,

na itinaas kahapon ang antas ng Ambo, ang unang bagyong pumasok sa bansa ngayong taon. Taglay ng Ambo ang hanging may bilis na 120 kilometers per hour (kph) malapit sa gitna at pagbugsong hanggang 150 kph. Anang Pagasa, maraming ulan na ibinubuhos ang Ambo, mga 20-30 ml kada oras sa loob ng 400

Nagtataka si Miriam: Bakit ako inisnab?
PABIRONG nilarawan ni Sen. Miriam Defensor-Santiago ang sarili bilang malungkot, nangungulila at may malaking pagdududa sa kanyang sex appeal nang tanungin kung bakit hindi siya nilapitan upang bumoto para sa conviction o acquittal ni Chief Justice Renato Corona.
“Probably they were worried that I might create a scandal so they just ignored me,” anang 67-taonggulang na senadora nang tanungin kung kinausap siya ng mga panig na pro- o antiCorona bago ang makasaysayang boto sa impeachment noong Mayo 30. “Nobody, not even one talked to me. It upsets me. I’m feeling sad and alone. I never realized that my sex appeal had waned. Or maybe they got scared because eskandalosa ako? Probably they worried about getting into trouble so they just scratched me out,” anang senadora. Cathy Yamsuan

KAMPANYA NG MMDA
‘Men in Red’ manghuhuli ng jaywalking
Ni Miko Morelos
MAG-INGAT sa “Men in Red.” Simula ngayong araw, hahabulin ng mga kawani ng Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) na nakasuot ng matingkad na pulang kamiseta ang mga ayaw gumamit ng mga footbridge o mga tinakdang tawiran kasunod ng pinaigting na hakbang ng ahensya laban sa mga jaywalker.
KINAKAUSAP ni US Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta (kaliwa) an mga kawani ng USNS Richard E. Byrd, isang barko ng US Navy na dumaong sa Cam Ranh Bay, Vietnam, kahapon. Binisita ni Panetta ang dating US air at naval base sa Vietnam. Siya ang opisyal ng US na may pinakamataas na katungkulan na dumalaw doon mula nang natapos ang digmaan ng dalawang bansa. INQUIRER WIRES
Bibigyan ng babala ang mga mahuhuli ngayong araw. Ngunit simula bukas, bibigyan na ng citation tiket at pagmumultahin ng P200 ang mga jaywalker. Kung hindi sila makapagbabayad, bibigyan sila ng kawani ng MMDA ng on-thespot lecture sa disaster preparedness. Pinaliwanag ni MMDA assistant general manager for operations Emerson Carlos na napapanahon at napakahalaga ng 15-minutong lecture sapagkat nakatuon ito sa pagpapaigting sa kamulatan ng publiko sa mga dapat gawin kapag tumama ang natural na kalamidad. Magkakaroon din ang MMDA ng pagkakataon na makaanyaya ng mga boluntir para sa rescue volunteer group nito, dinagdag niya. “Though [people] may not join the group, the knowledge they will gain [through] the lecture will allow them to survive,” ani Carlos. Nauna nang inaprubahan ng Metro Manila Council—ang policy-making arm ng ahensya na binubuo ng mga alkalde ng 16 lungsod at isang bayan sa Kamaynilaan—ang pagtataas sa multa ng jaywalking sa P200 mula P150. Paghahanda ito para sa pagpapakalat sa bagong-buong antijaywalking unit ng ahensya, ani MMDA Chair Francis Tolentino kahapon sa isang panayam sa radyo kahapon. Ayon kay Tolentino, layon ng kampanya na mailayo sa peligro ang mga pedestrian at maibalik ang kaayusan sa mga lansangan.
Bigating opisyal ng US military andito
NASA Maynila si Gen. Martin Dempsey, hepe ng US Joint Chiefs of Staff, para sa isang security meeting kasama ang mga opisyal ng depensa ng Pilipinas. Dumating si Dempsey kahapon mula Singapore, kung saan dumalo ang mga nakatataas na opisyal ng depensa ng Estados Unidos sa isang security forum upang ipaliwanag ang bagong istratehiya ng militar na magpapagting sa pananatili ng US sa rehiyon sa darating na mga taon. Noong Sabado, hinayag ni US Defense Secretary Leon Panetta sa isang porum na babalasahin ng US ang navy nito upang makapagtalaga ng 60 porsyento ng mga warship nito sa AsyaPa s i p i k o p a g s a p i t n g 2 0 2 0 , pinalawig mula sa 50 porsyento sa kasalukuyan. Tatagpuin ni Dempsey si Gen. Jessie Dellosa, chief of staff ng Armed Forces of the Philippines, ngayong umaga upang talakayin ang seguridad. Walang impormasyon ang AFP hinggil sa saklaw ng tatalakayin nina Dempsey at Dellosa. Ngunit sinabi ni Col. Arnulfo Burgos Jr., tagapagsalita ng AFP , na mahalaga ang pulong “to further the [Mutual] Defense Treaty and to enhance bilateral relations.” Hinayag ng Embahada ng US sa Maynila ang pagdalaw ni Dempsey kahapon. Sinabi nitong bahagi ng biyahe ng opisyal sa Asya ang pagtigil sa Pilipinas “to meet with senior military and civilian leadership.” “As treaty allies, the US and the Republic of the Philippines routinely consult and exchange views on a broad range of bilateral, regional and global issues reflecting on common values and interests,” anang embahada. Sinabi ni Foreign Secretary Albert del Rosario kahapon na maaasahan ang pagdating ng “greater number” ng US warship sa bagong istratehiya. DZP JEE ,
Miriam: Susunod na CJ dapat hindi kalaban ni Corona
MAY PAYO si Sen. Miriam Defensor-Santiago sa Judicial and Bar Council (JBC) na magpupulong ngayon upang talakayin kung sino ang irerekomenda bilang sunod na Chief Justice: Huwag pipili ng kalaban ng nasibak na si Renato Corona. Agad mababahiran ng duda ang integridad ng bagong Punong Mahistrado, ayon kay Santiago. Naghayag ng opinyon si Santiago nang tanungin kaugnay sa mga pangalang lumulutang bilang kapalit ni Corona, kasama na sina Justice Secretary Leila de Lima, Internal Revenue Commissioner Kim Henares at acting Chief Justice Antonio Carpio. Habang sang-ayon ang senadora na “it’s about time” na isang babae ang mamuno sa Korte Suprema, pinuna niya na nabahiran sina De Lima at Henares dahil tumestigo sila laban kay Corona noong litisin ito. “There will be that moral question mark, that they witnessed against the Chief Justice. People might say, ‘Probably you testified against him because you’re interested in his position,’” sinabi ni Santiago sa radyo dzBB. “Leila is a member of the Aquino Cabinet. So there would be a perception that she is very close to the President. We can say the same thing about Kim,” pinaliwanag niya. Aniya, maraming babaeng maaaring maging Punong Mahistrado. “Right now, I can think of Ameurfina Herencio-Herrera as a possible Chief Justice. She’s good! Trouble is, she is not close to the administration, she’s not into politics,” she said. Si Herrera, 90, ay retiradong associate justice ng Korte Suprema. Samantala, si Carpio ay kilalang kalaban ni Corona, ani Santiago. CC Yamsuan J Aning
ROLBAK NA NAMAN SA PRESYO NG PRODUKTONG PETROLYO
SA IKAWALONG kasunod na linggo, binawasan ng mga kumpanya ng langis ang presyo ng mga produkto nila simula ngayong araw alinsunod sa patuloy na pagbaba sa pandaigdigang pamilihan ng langis. Binaba ng Petron Corp., Pilipinas Shell Petroleum Corp., Eastern Petroleum, Phoenix Petroleum at Seaoil Philippines nang 65 sentimo ang presyo ng litro ng diesel, 60 sentimo sa kerosene, 40 sentimo sa regular na gasolina at 30 sentimo sa unleaded na gasolina. Inaasahang susunod ang iba pang mga kumpanya ng langis. Bago ang rolbak ngayong araw, nasa P42 hanggang P46 ang litro ng diesel habang nasa P48 hanggang P56 ang litro ng gasolina. Bumaba na ang pandaigdigang presyo ng langis sa pinakamababang antas nito sa loob ng anim na buwan, ayon sa Department of Energy, dahil sa malaking imbentaryo ng langis sa Estados Unidos at alalahanin sa lumalalang krisis sa pautang sa Europa na nagpapahina sa pangangailangan.

DEAR Emily, Nang mag-OFW ako, limang taon na kaming kasal ng asawa ko. May trabaho kami pareho noon. Siya’y masahista at ako naman ay taxi driver.
Masaya kaming dalawa maski na hirap kami. Nang magdalawa ang anak namin, naisip naming mag-ibang bansa ako para bumilis ang ipon ng pera namin. Nakakuha ako ng trabaho sa Middle East bilang isang family driver. Nakabili kami ng tricycle at nakapagpatayo ng isang karinderia sa loob ng tatlong taon. Nang umuwi ako isang beses pagkatapos ng limang taon, may napansin ako sa aking asawa. Parang hindi s’ya masayang makita ako at laging wala sa bahay dahil may inaasikaso daw siya. Doon ko nalamang boyfriend na pala niya ang driver ng aming tricycle. Akala ko ay matatag ang aming samahan. Pinaalis ko siya sa bahay namin at pinatira ko doon ang aking inang biyuda. Nagtagal pa ako ng tatlong taon sa Middle East at nagpasya akong bu-

Giginhawa nga sila sa pamemera, pero kung ang kapalit naman nito ay ang paghiwa-hiwalay ng kanilang pamilya nang matagal, at halos hindi na sila makilala ng mga anak nila, para ano pa ang pera? Isang aral na rin ito na hindi kailangang kumita ng malaki upang lumigaya ang isang tao. Ang mahalaga ay nagkakaunawaan ang bawat isa sa pamilya, at hindi mainggit sa mga nakikitang luho ng ibang tao. Hindi lahat ng kumikinang ay ginto.

11 FEATURES Mabuhay Temple to host ‘One Day on Earth’ screening
MONDAY, JUNE 4, 2012
THE INTERNATIONAL Buddhist Progress Society (IBPS) of Manila will host a free public screening of One Day on Earth at the Five Contemplations Hall of the Mabuhay Temple on June 11, 7:30 p.m.
Mabuhay Temple is located at 656 Pablo Ocampo Street, Malate, Manila. One Day on Earth is a full-length documentary feature that holds the distinction of being the first film ever to include footage from every country on earth, all captured on a single day—Oct. 10, 2010. The film provides a unique look into a wide array of human activities and even offers intimate access to rarely seen images from countries such as North Korea, Iran and Kosovo. The film was able to beautifully capture the interconnectedness of human beings by showing the shared triumphs and challenges of all people on Earth. The film’s director and founder Kyle Ruddick and co-founder and executive producer Brandon Litman, with the support of the United Nations and a global community of filmmakers, has succeeded in creating a video time capsule of one

Lance Raymundo, almost normal

vice is to get a good pair of jeans—it’s a man’s uniform. You can even wear them with formal suits nowadays,” Lance says.
Lance Raymundo chants this mantra when hunting for costumes and accessories for his badass alter ego, James Wolf. “I’m not vain [but] when you’re maintaining a certain look, you have to make sacrifices,” he tells Living Stars. The shy and preppy-looking balladeer we first saw on stage 10 years ago now sings “dancepop” tunes and wears colored pants, leather boots and headdresses—with horns or feathers. Lance recently created the “Wolf sound” which, he says, means “wonders of living and freedom.” He is working on a 10-track CD scheduled for release later this year. Fatanas, the carrier single, caused a stir when its video was uploaded on YouTube last year. The real Lance says he prefers the “basic stuff.” He explains: “I don’t wear feathers in real life. When I go out, I wear tees and sneakers. Boots aren’t comfortable.” However, he said, adjusting to the new look wasn’t difficult.
“This suit was made for me by Alcs Porras, with further styling by Anna Araneta ... In front, it’s very sleek and elegant,” says Lance. “At the back, it has angel wings. It screams,
Fatanas made news when it was released on YouTube the day before the arrest of Pampanga representative and former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo in November 2011. Lance relates: “People referred to the song as anti-GMA; in my TV interviews, I insisted that it was not. To prove it, I performed Fatanas in a TV appearance wearing a neck brace decorated with feathers. To me it’s a fashion accessory. If I was guilty, I wouldn’t wear anything even slightly resembling GMA’s neck brace.” He bought troll dolls in the United States: “They were the only things left in the store—no one wanted to buy them because they’re ugly. The seller said these came all the way from Norway. I consider them my lucky charms. It may a coincidence, but all my artistic endeavors came through after I bought them in 2006.” He’s been receiving gifts from supporters since he started performing as Wolf: “The first was a stuffed toy that turns into a blanket. It’s from this girl that I’m dating. I also got wolf ear muffs and hats.”
Pinoy jeepney, pedicab debut in ‘Bourne’ clip
By Bayani San Diego Jr.
MAKING their big debut in a Hollywood action franchise are two very Pinoy modes of transport: the pedicab and the jeepney. The trailer of The Bourne Legacy was finally released online on Friday. Unlike an earlier teaser that didn’t include footage shot in the country, this one features several very Pinoy scenes—including Edsa traffic and a very tight eskinita, both of which were used to great effect in chase and action sequences. One scene shows a jeepney—with a few stunned commuters inside—spinning out of control. There’s a shot of Jeremy Renner walking on a tightrope of tangled cable wires as well. Not a few netizens have expressed excitement over the Legacy trailer. Even the uniforms of the security guards and policemen look like the ones we see in these parts. Stars Renner, Rachel Weisz and Edward Norton shot a number of pivotal scenes on the mean streets of Manila and Pasay early this year. The movie opens worldwide in August.
“I have normal-looking vests that I wear everywhere, even to the mall. I also have vests that are avant garde. They have feathers, and you’ll never see me wear them again. They were designed for the Fatanas music video,” says Lance. “In the beginning, my manager and I just wanted to make a video that’s funny and, at the same time, meaningful. ‘Fatanas’ is a combination of the words ‘fat’ and ‘Satanas.’ It’s a song against greed and corruption. We used the feathers to show we’re not greedy, that we have that angelic quality.”
‘I’m a rock star!’” “For formal outfits, the most important consideration is the cut,” he points out. “You can’t wear anything too loose.”
“This pendant is interesting. This is actually my blood,” Lance reveals. “A doctor friend who takes blood donations, helped me get this vial. My stylist made it into a pendant. I don’t think it’s sacrilegious.” Accessories are important because it completes your look, he says. “It’s part of self-expression. You wear stuff that you think represent you. I wear them depending on how I feel. I have that surfer vibe nowadays, so I like using beads and ropes.” Bape, a Japanese brand that’s a favorite of hip-hop people,” says Lance. “I’ve learned to appreciate shoes that are more sleek, thanks to my stylists,” he adds. “I prefer them in brown, beige, dark brown. I wear loafers with my shorts, and boots with my pants.”
Lance confesses to once being a manic DVD buyer: “I’ve probably seen only 15 percent of what I’ve acquired. I think I have over 3,000 original DVDs. I’m rehabilitated now.” His favorite DVDs are those of Prince. “I like him, not because of his style but his musicality. He plays all instruments,” Lance says. “Also, I’m selling my music so I have to be aware of what other people listen to. So, aside from my Joni Mitchell and James Brown DVDs and CDs, I also have Justin Bieber and Katy Perry.”
“I follow trends; I’m not afraid to wear short shorts. I actually feel comfortable in them. Some are from Topman, some were made for me by Alcs and Anna,” Lance says. He prefers slim-cut pants to loose pants. “Surprisingly, I’m comfortable wearing them,” he says. “When I go out with friends, I like wearing this (a pair of ripped vintage denims). I wear colored and more trendy pants to dinner dates. My ad-
“I only have two pairs of shades. I can’t even find the other one right now,” Lance admits. “I don’t always wear them—only when I feel crazy. I don’t hide from the sun, I love it.”
“This is the first jacket that my stylist provided when I performed as James Wolf,” he says, showing a leather piece with fur collar. “I was very hesitant to
“I’m a skater boy at heart. I’ve grown up, but I still like the look I had at 13. That’s why I have these pairs from Nike and

Through a stringent screening and judging process supervised by Festival executive director Ryan Cayabyab, the initial long list of entries has been pruned down to the Top 14 finalists. The board of judges is composed of musical executive producers, composers, singers, musicians and writers. The Top 14 will compete for the top prize of 1 million pesos. The first runner-up will receive P500,000, the second runner-up will receive P250,000, and the rest will receive P50,000.

In partnership with other major companies like Maynilad Water, MERALCO, PLDT, Sun Cellular, TV5 and the PICC, Smart hopes to help revive public interest and support for original Filipino music. "We Filipinos have music in our blood. We must support and take pride in the talent and artistry of Filipino songwriters and composers,” said Lorenzana. "Bringing Filipino music closer to our subscribers is one of the ways by which we encourage people to ‘live more’,” ended Lorenzana.

These highlights of the research findings are part of the annual Reader’s Digest Trusted Brand consumer survey implemented in various Asian countries which include Thailand, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia, India, China, Hong Kong and Seventy five percent of the consumer survey respondents are also likely to purchase an eco-friendly product or service.

Annual party invades Boracay anew
MYPHONE recently concluded its Annual MyPhone MyParty at the famed beach of Boracay! A hugely successful event attended by thousands of sexy beach bodies last April 27 at the beautiful Sand Bar. Action started to the beat of a Tribal Band that signified the start of the party. The event also hosted a variety of musical performances from various bands that rocked the house all night. And a Boracay Beach Party wont be complete without the best fire dancers Boracay has to offer. But the highlight of the event is the signature 1 Phone every 10 minutes raffle sponsored by the Country’s Leading Mobile Phone Brand, MyPhone. According to MyPhone vice president Richie de Quina, the MyPhone MyParty started off as a coming out party to announce to the local market that the MyPhone Brand has arrived and is here to stay. To differentiate ourselves from the other events in Boracay, we came up with an idea to raffle “1 Phone every 10 Minutes.” Instead of just plain party music and alcohol, MyPhone decided to come up with something original and make the revelers experience our products by giving away the phones. And due to the positive feedback and demands from our partners, MyPhone decided to return and once again invade Boracay, added De Quina.

ANONG NANGYARI? Bakas ang pagtataka at pagkamangha sa mukha ni San Antonio Spurs point guard Tony Parker sa gitna ng Game 4 na laban nila sa Oklahoma City Thunder.
KITA N’YO ’TO?! Ipinagmamalaki ni Thunder power forward Serge Ibaka ang kanyang jersey matapos talunin ng Oklahoma City ang San Antonio Spurs sa Game 4 at itabla ang REUTERS Western Conference best-of-seven finals, 2-2.
KLAHOMA CITY—Kevin Durant scored 18 of his 36 points in a scintillating final 7 minutes, Serge Ibaka added a career-high 26 points and the Oklahoma City Thunder evened the Western Conference finals at two games apiece by beating the San Antonio Spurs, 109-103, Saturday night.
After seeing his team’s 15point lead dwindle to four, Durant took over midway through the fourth quarter by scoring all 16 of the Thunder’s points during a span of just over 5 minutes. With All-Star teammate Russell Westbrook limited to seven points, Durant did almost all of the damage late to send the series back to San Antonio all square for Game 5 on Monday night. The three-time scoring champi-
Durant’s brilliant 7 O
on hit three straight jumpers, the last one coming after he bumped into Tony Parker in the lane to draw a foul and set up a threepoint play. Then he attacked the rim for his next three baskets, getting to the line again when he was fouled on a layup off of James Harden’s alley-oop. Durant hit another jumper after coming off a Westbrook screen for the last basket in his personal run—and the Spurs were still
within striking distance. Rookie Kawhi Leonard bracketed a pair of 3-pointers around that Durant jumper, and the Spurs were only down 102-96 with 1:24 left. The Spurs succeeded in getting the ball out of Durant’s hands on the next possession, only for him to provide the assist on Harden’s 3-pointer from the left wing that bumped the lead to nine. Durant hit two free throws in the final minute to help close it out. Oklahoma City is trying to become the 15th team in NBA history to overcome a 0-2 deficit in a seven-game series. Inquirer wires
Tigers nilapa Texters; Petron sinunog Alaska
KUMULEKTA ng 32 puntos si Omar Sneed at humatak ng 23 rebound para itumba ng Powerade ang Talk ‘N Text, 110-105, sa ikalawang sunod ng panalo sa PBA Governors’ Cup sa Smart Araneta Coliseum. Nagbigay din ng 28 puntos si Gary David sa Tigers para sa ikatlong talo ng Tropang Texters sa apat na laro. “How could you not have confidence if you have a teammate like Omar? He brings out that feeling (in his teammates) that we can beat any team,” ani Powerade coach Bo Perasol. “What’s important is that he’s not only unselfish, but he’s also producing.” Umiskor si Sneed ng 12 puntos sa ikatlong quarter at 11 ang iniambag ni David para burahin ang limang puntos na lamang ng Talk ‘N Text sa pagtatapos ng half time at gumawa ng 10-puntos na abante sa pagpasok sa huling quarter. Sa fourth ay nagtulong ang dalawa, at sinabayan pa ni Rey Guevarra para, para pigilan ang buwelta ng Texters, na n a l u g m o k s a i s a s a p i n a k amasamang simula nila sa ilalim ni Chot Reyes. Tinapos ni Guevarra ang laro na may 11 puntos, kasama na ang isang dakdak at isang double-pump sa kritikal na bahagi ng fourth quarter. Sa ikalawang laro, ibinuhos ng Petron Blaze ang nag-aapoy nitong galit sa Alaska na sinunog nito 107-94 para manalo uli. Kontrolado ng Boosters ang laro mula simula at lumamang ng umabot sa 22 puntos tungo sa pagbibigay sa Aces ng ikalawang sunod na talo nito. Musong R. Castillo

Bradley: Papatayin ko si Pacquiao
HOLLYWOOD—Nahihirapang sumakay si Timothy Bradley sa biglaang pagsalang niya sa pandaigdigang larangan bunsod ng nalalapit niyang laban kay Manny Pacquiao sa Hunyo 9 (Hunyo 10 sa Maynila). Unang inilarawan bilang mabait na padre de pamilya na mas gustong mamalagi sa kanilang pamayanan, lumulutang ngayon si Bradley bilang mabangis at mapanganib na hamon sa WBO welterweight crown in Pacquiao. “I can’t wait to get in there and kill this dude,” sinabi ni Bradley kay Ryan Burton. Anuman ang ibig niyang sabihin, wala pang nagbanta ng ganoon sa Fighter of the Decade. Hindi si Oscar De La Hoya, hindi si Miguel Cotto, at hindi si Antonio Margarito. Idineklara ng wala pang talong Amerikano na gugulatin niya ang mundo sa pagbugbog at pagtalo kay Pacquiao. Ipinangako niya na sasaktan at parurusahan ang eight-division champion sa paghaharap nila sa MGM Granc Arena sa Las Vegas. Sinabi ng 28-taong-gulang na vegetarian na sampung ulit siyang mas magaling kay Juan Manuel Marquez na nagpahirap kay Pacquiao. Roy Luarca
