CEBU CITY–At least 33 persons were hospitalized in Minglanilla town, southern Cebu, complaining of abdominal pains, vomiting and fever after eating fruit salad served in the house of a village watchman in Naga City, Cebu.
He said they reported the matter to the Department of Health and had taken samples of the fruit for laboratory examination to determine if this was a case of food poisoning. Cruz, chair of the Naga City Disaster Risk Reduction Management Council, said the victims are residents of the neighboring Barangay Tangke who attended a fiesta celebration in Sitio Kapanang, Barangay Naalad in Naga City, 21.7 km south of here, on Saturday night. Naga City Mayor Valdemar Chiong said he ordered Cruz to send medicines and dextrose to the hospital. CEBU CITY, Philippines — A one-year-old boy was killed when he was run over by a sports utility vehicle (SUV) after he was allegedly pushed away by his mother in Cebu City past 11 a.m. Joy Tumulak, operations head of the Cebu City Traffic Office (CCTO), said they had taken the boy’s mother into custody after witnesses claimed that she pushed the child into the path of a passing Isuzu Altera (YFX 409).
Witnesses reportedly claimed  the boy’s mother was drinking liquor at a store along New Imus Road when the incident happened. The boy fell on the pavement and was run over by the SUV, which was turning right to New Imus Road from an access road in Barangay Lorega San Miguel. Tumulak said the vehicle’s driver had come from the interior of the barangay to deliver mangoes. Evangelist Apollo Quiboloy of Kingdom of Jesus Christ endorses Presidential candidate Mayor Rodrigo Duterte after a thanksgiving and worship prayer of Kingdom of Jesus Christ held in Lingayen town in Pangasinan province. Pastor Apollo Quiboloy on Monday said all is well between him and presumptive President-elect Rodrigo Duterte.
Quiboloy, the founder of the homegrown Christian sect Kingdom of Jesus Christ, the Name Above Every Name, is Duterte’s longtime friend.
The pastor said he understood that the mayor has a busy schedule and he praised the incoming President for saying the country’s interest would be first before friendhip. Earlier, the camp of Quiboloy, through his spokesman Mike Abe, said the pastor was hurt because Duterte was unable to see him.
Senators will tackle 30 bills when session resumes on Monday, May 23, 2013, or about two weeks before the end of the 16th Congress. Close to 30 bills are up for approval on third and final reading as Congress resumes this Monday after a three-month long break.
The Senate agenda released by the office of Senate Majority Leader Alan Peter Cayetano listed 28 bills for third and final reading  while four other are scheduled for second reading.
Also up for third reading are SB 3209 entitled “An act creating providing stronger measures against unlawful practices, businesses, and schemes of matching and offering Filipinos to foreign nationals for purposes of marriage or common law partnership repealing for the purpose of Republic Act No.
Outgoing Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr., who ran for vice president in the last elections, will also deliver a privilege speech at the Senate this Monday.
On Wednesday, the Commission on Appointments’ committee on constitutional commissions and offices will convene at 10 a.m. The 16th Congress, which began on July 22, 2016, will adjourn sine die its third and last regular session on June 10, 2016. BANGKOK, Thailand — At least 17 young girls died after a fire swept through the dormitory of a school for children of hill tribes in northern Thailand, officials said Monday, adding several others were either missing or injured. The fire started late at night, meaning many of the children were asleep and unable to escape as flames engulfed the two-story building. A Chiang Rai provincial official confirmed the death toll, adding that the privately-run school is home to girls aged between six and 13 years old, drawn mainly from the deprived local hill tribes.
Photographs on the school’s Facebook page showed firefighters struggling to douse the flames as they tore through the wooden building. Thai media showed a fire truck spraying water onto the blaze as the upper story of the school was consumed by the fire.
Thailand’s is home to a patchwork of hill tribes who mainly live in the remote northern area bordering Laos and Myanmar. Many are descendants of refugees from Myanmar or China and exist within subsistence farming communities often beyond the reach of state resources.
Thai security forces frequently engage in deadly gun battles with hill tribe drug mules in the region. That link engenders prejudice among many Thais and hill tribes are often portrayed negatively in the media. Chiang Rai town and the surrounding hills are popular with foreign tourists for hiking and adventure sports. US President Barack Obama (inset) has told Japanese public broadcaster NHK that he will not be apologizing for the atomic bombing of Japan at the end of World War II. TOKYO, Japan — US President Barack Obama will not apologize for the atomic bombing of Hiroshima on his landmark visit this week, he told Japanese public broadcaster NHK in an interview. Obama will become the first sitting US president to visit Hiroshima, where the first atomic bomb was dropped on August 6, 1945, killing about 140,000 people in total. Tens of thousands were killed by the fireball that the powerful Hiroshima blast generated, with many more succumbing to injuries or illnesses caused by radiation in the weeks, months and years afterward. The southern city of Nagasaki was hit by a second bomb three days later, killing 74,000 people, in one of the final acts of World War II. Unlike in the House of Representatives, members of the Liberal Party (LP) in the Senate will remain intact under the administration of presumptive President-elect Rodrigo Duterte, Senate President Franklin Drilon said on Monday. Asked if LP members in the Senate, including the newly-elected senators, would remain intact, Drilon answered “yes” in a text message. Aside from Drilon, vice chair of LP, his other partymates in the chamber are incumbent Senator Bam Aquino, re-elected Senator Ralph Recto, returning Senator Francis “Kiko” Pangilinan and newly-elected Senator Leila de Lima.
So far, Senator Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel III has expressed interest in seeking the Senate presidency while Senator Vicente “Tito” Sotto III claimed that at least 11 senators were pushing him to run for the post. Senator Alan Peter Cayetano is also being floated as a possible contender for the Senate presidency. Pangilinan could not say yet if the LP members and their allies would stick together despite the reported defections in the lower chamber. While he ran under the LP slate, Villanueva pointed out that the Senate is an independent institution.
Villanueva said he would meet separately with the four possible contenders for the Senate presidency though he said Drilon might have a “big advantage” since he was the incumbent and because they ran together during the last elections. He was also quick to point out his close personal ties with Cayetano, who is the godfather of his children.
TAGUM CITY, Philippines — A reelected member of the Sangguniang Panlalawigan (provincial board) of Davao del Norte’s 1st district died early Monday, hours before he was to be re-proclaimed winner in the May 9 elections. With all but one of the six local government units able to completely transmit election returns (ERs), the provincial board of canvassers (PBOC) decided to proclaim De Veyra and four others as elected board members. By then, De Veyra, an optometrist, had emerged as third with the most number of votes garnered for the five-member provincial board. However, upon the completion of the transmittal of ERs from Asuncion municipality, De Veyra was able to dislodge Board member Shirley Belen Aala, from second place, hence the PBOC scheduled a re-proclamation. He said they had offered to the party a family member as his late father’s replacement but declined to give a name.
Never in the poll’s history, The Post said, had two major party nominees been viewed as harshly, with nearly 6 in 10 voters holding negative impressions of both candidates. That underscored a growing sense of urgency in the Clinton campaign to define her both more clearly and positively — a task made harder by her inability to shake off her tenacious Democratic rival, Bernie Sanders. But the new poll seemed to show that if Americans are united about anything, it is in their dissatisfaction with the two leading candidates. What is shaping up to be the nastiest American presidential campaign in recent memory is beginning with voters expressing historically deep and practically identical levels of discomfort with both Trump and Clinton. This has shaken up some in the Democratic camp, who assumed Trump would be an easy target, and it has provided encouragement to Sanders, the Vermont senator who trails Clinton but keeps winning primaries. Appearing on Sunday talk shows, Sanders pleaded with the hundreds of the party’s so-called super-delegates who support Clinton to reconsider their allegiance ahead of the Democratic nominating convention in late July. As the race for the White House grows closer, Clinton supporters and some Democratic Party leaders have made increasingly insistent calls for Sanders to step aside and let Clinton turn her full attention to Trump.
But Sanders vowed yet again on Sunday to stay in the race at least until California, the most populous state, stages its primary on June 7.
Voters gave Sanders the most positive ratings of the three, with a net positive of 8 points among registered voters.
Voters also continued to express positive views of President Obama, to whom Clinton has closely tied her campaign, giving him a 51-percent approval rating. This photo taken by freelance photographer Abdul Malik on Saturday, May 21, 2016, purports to show volunteers standing near the wreckage of the destroyed vehicle, in which Mullah Mohammad Akhtar Mansour was allegedly traveling in the Ahmed Wal area in Baluchistan province of Pakistan, near the Afghanistan border. QUETTA, Pakistan — Taliban supremo Mullah Akhtar Mansour was killed in a US drone attack in Pakistan, senior militant sources told AFP Sunday, adding that an insurgent assembly was underway to decide on his successor. Saturday’s bombing raid, the first known US assault on a top Afghan Taliban leader on Pakistani soil, marks a major blow to the militant movement which saw a new resurgence under Mansour.
The elimination of Mansour, who rose to the rank of leader nine months earlier after a bitter internal leadership struggle, could also scupper any immediate prospect of peace talks. Mansour’s death, which risks igniting new succession battles within the fractious group, was confirmed by two other senior figures who said its top leaders were gathering in Quetta to name their future chief. The Taliban sources said that Sirajuddin Haqqani, leader of the dreaded Haqqani network and one of Mansour’s deputies, was among the frontrunners, adding that Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar was also in contention.
Both figures are said to be close to the Pakistani military establishment, which has historically nurtured and supported the Taliban.
US officials had said they had no definitive proof of his death in multiple drone strikes, authorized by President Barack Obama, in the remote Pakistani town of Ahmad Wal in Balochistan province.
Pakistan on Sunday lambasted the US over the drone attack, calling it a violation of its sovereignty and asserting that information about it was shared with its prime minister and army chief only after the raid.
Pakistani security officials said they recovered two bodies charred beyond recognition from a smoldering vehicle at the scene of the attack. The passenger, suspected to have been Mansour, was said to be returning from Iran and was using a Pakistani passport in the name of Muhammad Wali. Mansour was formally appointed head of the Taliban in July last year following the revelation that Mullah Omar had been dead for two years.
The group saw striking military victories under the firebrand supremo, helping to cement his authority by burnishing his credentials as a commander. The Taliban briefly captured the strategic northern city of Kunduz last September in their most spectacular victory since they were toppled from power in 2001.
The southern opium-rich province of Helmand is also almost entirely under insurgent control. But Mansour’s death was not immediately seen as likely to push the Taliban closer to peace talks. The drone attack came just days after representatives from the US, China, Pakistan and Afghanistan held another round of negotiations in Islamabad aimed at reviving long-stalled direct peace talks between the Afghan government and the Taliban. However pressure has been building in recent months for the United States to return to direct attacks on the Taliban, particularly via air strikes. NATO ended its combat mission in Afghanistan in December 2014, pulling out the bulk of its troops, although a 13,000-strong residual force remains for training and counterterrorism operations.
The Taliban, who announced the start of their annual spring offensive last month, have already stepped up their campaign against the Western-backed Kabul government for the season. THAT PHRASE just about sums up Finance Secretary Cesar Purisima’s assessment of the Philippine economy after six years under President Aquino.
Driving growth for the quarter was fixed capital formation—or investments—which expanded by 25.5 percent, the highest in almost six years and a clear sign of investor confidence.
Consumer optimism was also at an all-time high in the first quarter, reflected in part by the 7-percent jump in household consumption that was buoyed by negligible inflation and a 10-year-low unemployment of 5.8 percent. Clearly, the Aquino administration is passing a vibrant economy to the incoming administration of Rodrigo Duterte. More importantly, the incoming administration has to make good on its promise to address the people’s common problems that seem to have been neglected by the incumbent. Such neglect was validated by the results of the recent national elections, which should have resulted in the administration candidate winning the presidency if indeed the benefits of economic growth had trickled down to the public at large. Economically speaking, Purisima is correct to say that the Philippines is in a much better place than when President Aquino and his team took over.
As the outgoing president reviewed the troops for the last time, one woman said in Filipino, “You are pitiful.
Such did the raucous crowd at the presidential inauguration of June 30, 2010, vent their anger on Gloria Macapagal Arroyo. Six years ago, the Filipino mind was engrossed in writing the sins of the outgoing president on the tally sheet. As Arroyo strode on the parade grounds of the Quirino Grandstand, foremost on the minds of the watching public were the “Hello, Garci” controversy, the national broadband network controversy, the fertilizer fund scam, the North Rail project fiasco, Tropical Storm “Ondoy” and its disastrous aftermath, not to mention the dinner at New York’s classy Le Cirque just a few days before Cory Aquino’s death.
Social media, unfettered and uncensored, has already drawn up its list of the Aquino controversies that partly decided the results of the presidential election: the unconstitutional Disbursement Acceleration Program for which calls have already been made to put Mr.
It certainly was bad fate for the Aquino administration that Corona died at the height of this year’s presidential campaign.
Of the sins of omission, the most glaring on the list would be the negligence that led to the MRT serial breakdowns and the international airport mismanagement.
Six years of pent-up anger over favoritism, the unconstitutional practice of using discretionary funds sans line items in the budget (a form of corruption, no less), and the protection of inept presidential friends formed part of the “change is coming” grand narrative that helped Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte sweep the 2016 presidential election. THERE’S A tried and tested way for ordinary citizens to lawfully profit from the proceeds of corruption, while still enabling the government to recover stolen public funds. From 2009 to 2013, one country in the world recovered the equivalent of P617 billion in public funds that were lost to corruption. Under a US law called the False Claims Act, ordinary citizens can expose graft and corruption committed by companies in their commercial dealings with the US government. Without a law like the False Claims Act, the search for corruption-stained contracts is done with government agencies examining transactions that are externally packaged to look, sound and smell like pious works. With a law like the False Claims Act, every employee working in a private contractor’s house can become a potential whistle-blower who will come out of the house and hand crucial evidence to government investigators who are virtual roadside bystanders. One US senator rationalizes giving rewards to whistle-blowers, many of whom are engaged in unethical or outright criminal activities themselves, “upon the old-fashioned idea of holding out a temptation, and ‘setting a rogue to catch a rogue,’ which is the safest and most expeditious way … ever discovered of bringing rogues to justice.” The trick is to reward a criminal to catch a bigger criminal.
A law like the False Claims Act has the effect of deputizing every citizen to become a corruption-buster with potentially huge rewards for his or her efforts. The Global Financial Integrity, an international research organization, estimates that the Philippine economy was cheated of P6 trillion from 1960 to 2011, or an average of over P357 billion yearly. These figures constitute the mere tip of the corruption iceberg because they were gathered by either researchers doing investigative work as bystanders or COA auditors examining documents whose wordings are crafted to cover up corruption. It may well be true that incoming president Rodrigo Duterte is serious in his election promise to stamp out corruption during his six years in office. If Duterte can stamp out corruption and marshal Congress to pass laws that will remove corruption from the country’s bloodstream starting from his term and beyond, he will be a leader worthy of a more glamorous martyrdom in the hallowed grounds of Luneta. WITH INCREASING frequency and magnitude, disasters and conflicts are causing untold human suffering in many parts of the world.


We need more concerted efforts to end conflict, alleviate suffering, and reduce risk and vulnerability conditions facing millions of people, most of whom are poor and live in rural and marginalized areas of developing countries.
This, essentially, is the aim of the World Humanitarian Summit convened by UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon. The recent adoption of a sustainable development agenda to end hunger and poverty, and to “leave no one behind,” a universal climate agreement, and a new framework to reduce disaster risk and enhance resilience, are important steps in the right direction. But we must go much further and radically transform how we perceive and implement humanitarian efforts. In practical terms, it means moving beyond responding with short-term relief measures, and invest much more in tackling the root causes of crises. Agriculture and rural development are key to strengthening the livelihoods of the most vulnerable, including hundreds of millions of small-scale family farmers who are responsible for producing an important share of the world’s food. Meanwhile, the agricultural sector, which bears almost 22 percent of damage and losses caused by natural disasters and up to 85 percent in case of drought, receives on average less than 4 percent of the total in humanitarian aid. In this context, it is crucial to stress that investing in livelihoods is not only the just thing to do, but it also makes sense from a cost-effectiveness point of view by helping to address the root causes of conflict, reduce the impact of future shocks, and prevent a deepening of vulnerabilities and the onset of a vicious cycle. In the case of natural hazards, it is four to seven times more cost-effective to invest in disaster-risk reduction than to rely on emergency response. Moreover, in armed conflict and protracted crises, protecting, saving and rebuilding agricultural livelihoods to save lives and create the conditions for longer-term resilience is a key step toward ensuring peace and stability. The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations provides both humanitarian and development assistance. More generally, we see how investment in agriculture helps strengthen the self-reliance and dignity of vulnerable rural communities, reducing the need for food assistance. If we want to address growing humanitarian needs, we need to move beyond business as usual and manage crises differently.

Archie Oclos, University of the Philippines 2011 graduate and street artist, laments the photorealistic astronaut painted across the entire back of Icon Plaza by a Los Angeles duo last year. The eerily floating stranger’s sheer scale provokes reflection on one’s sense of space, but it has no emotional umbilical. Reynaldo “Pogs” Samson, 2010 winner of Metro-bank’s prestigious art contest, pairs astronauts with angels as his avatars. Archie did get a small 15-foot wall at 29th Street corner Rizal Drive, near the Mind Museum. Past BGC murals by Filipino unknowns likewise struck me more than the imports: Dee Jae Pa’este’s aqua-colored tribal figures and the mosaic-style sun, moon and clouds of Baguio’s The Mighty Bhutens. To teach at the University of the East, I would drive past Gerilya’s striking Bonifacio and Rajah Sulayman on Nagtahan Bridge’s columns. Manny Garibay led a Canvas group, painting a 12-ft Bonifacio on the back of a truck during the 2014 UP Lantern Parade.

How many BGC shoppers have seen Carlos “Botong” Francisco’s 36-ft “The Progress of Medicine in the Philippines” from 1953, restored and moved from the Philippine General Hospital to the National Museum?
How many have seen “Itak sa Puso ni Mang Juan,” the small 1978 watercolor by Antipas Delotavo in the Metropolitan Museum’s tiny martial law section? I have seen precious few martial law paintings: BenCab’s 1970s works in his Baguio museum, a woman gagged with barbed wire in Pablo Baen Santos’ bold strokes in the Ateneo Art Gallery, and Ang Kiukok’s screaming figures. A Twitter thread tagging Sandro Marcos claimed that everything about martial law is on the internet. I love BGC’s five-story Fully Booked as much as I loved the National Bookstore Cubao Superbranch’s discount floor as a student. I recall Garibay’s exhortation to express our national identity as strongly as possible in our art, as it is not entrenched in the global psyche.
Until the Davao mayor is officially declared by Congress as the winning candidate for the presidency, I shall refer to him as the “incoming president” and thereafter until June 30, as the “president-elect.” As Ambeth pointed out, the choice of these terms reveals one’s bias. The incoming president has started to flesh out his Cabinet with a number of positions being offered to old friends, classmates, colleagues and political supporters. President Aquino found it excruciatingly difficult to let go of PNP chief Alan Purisima so much so that even after Purisima was suspended by the Ombudsman, he kept him at his side.
Somehow I am reminded of a story concerning appointments being made by newly-elected President John F. Still vacant are the following Cabinet positions: Department of National Defense, Department of the Interior and Local Government, Department of Trade and Industry, Department of Health, National Economic and Development Authority, Department of Social Welfare and Development, Department of Labor and Employment, Department of Agrarian Reform, and Department of Environment and Natural Resources.
Vitaliano Aguirre—During the Corona impeachment trial, he was cited for contempt for clasping both ears with his palms during remarks being delivered by Lady Miriam. Mark Villar—There appears to be some conflict of interest in this appointment since the family is involved in real estate development projects. Salvador Panelo—There are objections from relatives of Maguindanao massacre victims since Panelo served as the lawyer of the Ampatuans. In 2007, members of Philippine Air Force Flying School Class of 1957 marked their golden anniversary with a simple gathering of classmates and flight instructors at the Milky Way restaurant in Makati. LOS ANGELES—Saudi Arabia has captured the world’s attention with the announcement of an ambitious agenda. While the immediate catalyst for economic restructuring is the impact of the sharp fall in international oil prices, the rationale for these reforms has been evident for much longer. The more than halving of oil prices in the last 18 months has been accompanied by a major change in how the oil market functions. 10 million barrels per day, in just four years—the Saudi-led Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (Opec) oil cartel has less influence on market prices. Seeking to regain better control over its economic and financial destiny, the kingdom has designed an ambitious economic restructuring plan, spearheaded by its energetic new deputy crown prince, Mohammed bin Salman Al Saud. First, the plan seeks to enhance the generation of nonoil revenues, by raising fees and tariffs on public services, gradually expanding the tax base (including through the introduction of a value added tax), and raising more income from a growing number of visitors to Saudi Arabia. Second, the authorities want to reduce spending by lowering subsidies, rationalizing the country’s massive public investment program, and diverting spending on arms away from foreign purchases. Third, Saudi Arabia seeks to diversify its national wealth and, in the process, increase current investment income. The action plans underpinning the implementation of Vision 2030 inevitably involve progressing on multiple fronts simultaneously and in a carefully coordinated and monitored fashion. Against this background, it is encouraging that the announcement of Vision 2030 has been followed rapidly by the implementation of some initial and notable steps. THE RISE of Rodrigo Duterte from city mayor to president was largely propelled by his campaign promise to eradicate drug trafficking, criminality and corruption, issues that gravely matter to all sectors of society. However, I believe Mayor Duterte cannot deliver on his promise to do with the entire Philippines what he did with Davao City—unless all of us will help him. I hope that the Metro Manila mayors will emulate Mayor Duterte and not wait for the president of the Philippines to tell and teach them what to do and how to do their job. Duterte was elected to the presidency even if he is “wa-class.” He speaks English with a Visayan accent. Duterte was irreverent toward the Catholic Church, which other candidates or politicians dared not, lest they get the ire of the Church hierarchy and lose the votes of devotees.
Duterte declared himself a “leftist” and a “socialist.” To counter this, Roxas used Red-scare tactics, spooking the people of the specter of communism in a Duterte presidency. The Red-scare tactics did not work, nor did the branding of “Du-dirty.” Duterte won and won big-time. Duterte seems bent on projecting himself as the strong leader who will bring the nationwide changes he promised: an end to corruption and criminality and strict implementation of our laws and ordinances. It is clear why Duterte got an overwhelming vote in spite of the criticisms heaped on his person by other sectors; and in spite of his being foul-mouthed, irreverent, a womanizer and his admission to violating the human rights of criminals.
The more than 16 million who voted for him hope that he is the answer to the nation’s ills, the strong leader who would impose national discipline, establish peace and order, and protect the people from worsening lawlessness.

SINGAPORE, Singapore—Oil prices dipped in Asia Monday after Iran said it has no plans to join any output freeze by other major crude producers.
The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), of which Iran is a member, is due to meet in Vienna on June 2 after talks in Doha involving OPEC members and other major producers such as Russia in April failed to reach a deal to cap production.
Despite a recent rebound, world crude prices are still below half their levels in June 2014 due to oversupply. Iran only returned to world oil markets in January after the lifting of nuclear-linked Western sanctions. CMC Markets senior sales trader Alex Wijaya told AFP that the news out of Iran dashed rising confidence among traders on a tightening of the supply-demand equation, with US output steadily falling and Nigeria and Canada suffering temporary cutbacks.
Officials had on Sunday lifted the evacuation order for several oil production sites north of Fort McMurray, the city threatened by massive Canadian wildfires, although officials said thick smoke still prevented a resumption of most production. The fires, which forced the evacuation of 100,000 residents of Fort McMurray and the oil facilities to the north, interrupted extraction and refining of an estimated 1.2 million barrels of oil per day.
However, Wijaya said that the traders’ focus will now shift to longer term supply issues.
THE LOPEZ group took a strong stance on Monday against the use of coal to fuel the country’s power plants, citing an urgent need to mitigate the impact of climate change. Federico Lopez, president of First Philippine Holdings (FPH) made a bold declaration during FPH’s annual stockholders meeting on Monday that the group would never build, develop or invest in any coal-fired power plant. Lopez said some businessmen and power industry leaders tended to argue that since the Philippines was responsible for only 0.3 percent of global carbon emissions, the country had the right to continue building more coal-fired power plants.

Outgoing Finance Secretary Cesar Purisima (left) assured incoming finance chief Carlos Dominguez of a smooth transition when the government of presumptive President-elect Rodrigo Duterte takes over on July 1.
The current and incoming heads of the Department of Finance (DOF)—the agency in-charge of the country’s fiscal affairs—met last Friday and agreed on a smooth transition on June 30. Dominguez requested that some of Purisima’s staff as well as key officials of a number of DOF-attached agencies be retained for at least one month to assist him, sources said.
Purisima will also turn over to Dominguez a “DOF Manual of Institutional Knowledge,” which the department is set to finish by end-June. The incoming DOF leadership would also get to enjoy upgraded and renovated offices on the 5th and 6th floors as well as the building’s roof-deck.
The outgoing finance chief was all praises for Dominguez, who served in the Cabinet of former Presidents Corazon C.
METRO Manila’s traffic woes can’t be solved overnight, but possibly within two to three years, according to a “Marshall-like” solution being offered to presumptive President-elect Rodrigo Duterte by Filipino consortium Philtrak Inc. Andres Gestopa of the hospital said 11  patients were discharged on Monday morning while the rest were still under observation.

These were Panfilo “Ping” Lacson (independent), Risa Hontiveros (Akbayan Partylist), and Joel Villanueva (Cibac Partylist).
The Taliban have not commented officially on Mansour’s death or the leadership succession. It could press them to show they are still able to wage an aggressive battle, observers say. Sales of vehicles and condominium units also surged, benefiting from an investment-grade credit rating that led to lower interest rates. It can start by not tinkering with monetary stability and fiscal discipline, which have been the hallmarks of the incumbent.
On further boosting investor confidence, it can do better by acting with dispatch on Duterte’s plan to relax restrictions on foreign ownership, which have been used by inefficient local investors to the detriment of consumers.
Much needs to be done to uplift the poor (the poverty rate remains at more than 20 percent), peace and order appear to be a low priority (in the first half of 2015, the Philippine National Police reported a 46-percent increase in the number of crimes committed nationwide), and the travails of ordinary people such as the horrendous traffic situation and inadequate public transportation are relegated to the sidelines.
But it was won by the tough-talking mayor of Davao City who ran on the promise of stamping out crime if elected president.
This was a crowd that wanted to seize the last moments to heap ridicule on a leader that surveys had described as “one of the most unpopular the country has ever had,” as the national dailies reported the morning of the presidential inauguration.
Albeit the Inquirer report also added: “But some in the huge crowd were also heard chanting, ‘Gloria! Aquino and his Budget Secretary Butch Abad in jail; some have already posted memes of wheelchairs. Aquino’s integrity started fundamentally with his characteristic coddling of close friends and shooting buddies.
Out of this recovered amount, P91 billion was paid to private individuals who provided inside information that enabled their government to discover corruption-tainted transactions. If the information leads to a recovery, the whistle-blower earns 15-35 percent of all amounts that the US government receives by way of recovery or huge fines. Miriam Defensor Santiago filed a bill that sought to adopt a “False Claims” law for the Philippines.
The Office of the Ombudsman and the Department of Justice examine suspicious deals and contracts like roadside bystanders peering through the window of a private contractor’s house. Every employee of a company that has corrupt dealings with the government will be given a financial incentive to reveal corruption schemes that result in the theft of public funds or loss of potential government revenues. It likewise creates a culture of paranoia among companies and government officials who may be predisposed to enter into graft-ridden deals, and force them to avoid engaging in corrupt transactions. Most of these are tax and customs revenues lost because of conspiracies between importers and government personnel.
Imagine the entire corruption iceberg getting exposed in all its enormity, and melting in the resulting public exposure, if employees of corrupt companies are given huge incentives to expose corruption. During the election campaign, he theatrically declared his willingness to be martyred by riding a Jet Ski to a disputed but Chinese-occupied islet in the Spratlys and planting the Philippine flag. These are as diverse as Supertyphoon “Yolanda” (Haiyan), Ebola or civil war in Syria, to name but a few of the more recent.
It seeks to build on the momentum of an extraordinary series of commitments by the international community. It means building resilience and strengthening the livelihoods of people in ways that not only drive recovery from war, disease, floods and other shocks, but also help to reduce the impact of these crises and, where possible, prevent them from taking place altogether.


This provides a stark measure of the widening chasm between needs and the magnitude of response. Expanding access to social protection systems is crucial to underpin resilience—in humanitarian response as well as in development. Yet only 0.4 percent of Official Development Assistance is spent on disaster-risk reduction. However, the role of the agriculture sector in crises is too often overlooked and the necessary investments are not made.
We firmly believe in prioritizing early warning, prevention and preparedness to safeguard livelihoods, especially in the rural areas.
We have found that $200 in support enables a Syrian farmer to produce two tons of wheat, enough to feed a family of six for a year and provide seeds for future planting. We need to acknowledge that the interventions made must have a long-term impact on the beneficiaries, especially those in the rural areas, and then act accordingly.

I love their smaller Bonifacio with his pistol, alongside Jose Rizal holding a quill, beside Canvas, Gigo Alampay’s nonprofit gallery near UP.
Or the 40-ft “Karnabal,” painted in 1992 by Garibay’s Salingpusa collective, the first work in Antipolo’s Pinto museum?
It captured that decade’s mood with a thin, weary man walking past a blood red Coca-Cola logo, the C’s sharp tail pointed straight at his heart.
But its central attraction is now a painting, on a 24-ft stack of books by a Los Angeles artist, of an out-of-place woman with sharp nose and pouty lips.
It is easier to quote Tyrion Lannister to one’s own countrymen than to quote Rizal today, much less Benigno Aquino Jr.
Ocampo noted that the term “presumptive president” being used by media when referring to Mayor Rodrigo Duterte, is “painful to the eye and ear.” He added that he didn’t remember the term being used on Benigno Aquino, Gloria Macapagal Arroyo, Joseph Estrada or Fidel Ramos while they waited in limbo before assuming the presidency. For one thing, “presumptive” is too close for comfort to the word “presumptuous,” which indicates a certain degree of arrogance or insolence. Purisima continued giving advice and even orders that eventually led to the Mamasapano tragedy. I say tentative since there may still be changes until the appointments are officially announced by the President himself or the nominees finally take their oath of office. The last four are reportedly being reserved for the possible participation of Communist Party of the Philippines-National Democratic Front personalities. He is perhaps one of the very few legislators to have undergone both courses, an education which has clearly prepared him for his current responsibilities. With oil sales generating the bulk of government revenues, and with the public sector being the predominant employer, Saudi officials have long worried that the kingdom’s lack of economic diversity could place at risk its long-term financial security.
In addition, certain members of Opec, again led by Saudi Arabia, are now less willing to try to moderate fluctuations in the price of oil, as they correctly recognize that “swing producers” risk durable losses in market share. In simplified terms, Vision 2030 focuses on three major areas, together with efforts to protect the most vulnerable segments of the population. For example, the plan would raise funds via the initial public offering of a small part (up to 5 percent) of Saudi-Aramco, the giant oil conglomerate, and invest the proceeds in a broader range of assets around the world. Requiring invigorated administrative and operational resources, it comes at a time when Saudi Arabia is not only dealing with lower oil earnings and drawing down its large reserves, but also is increasingly asserting its regional role, including in Syria and Yemen.
Sustaining this momentum in a manner that maintains consistent communication with key domestic stakeholders will likely prove critical in determining the plan’s success. Filipinos banked on this promise given that residents of Davao City have affirmed reports about the city’s relatively peaceful atmosphere, which is widely perceived to be the result of Mayor Duterte’s imposition of stern discipline relative to public conduct, which in turn makes them feel safe and secure. The norm in our society is that one who speaks straight English without any “Filipino accent” is a class above the rest. The campaign period coincided with summer at its height; so he wore ordinary collared shirts and his signature checkered polo—tucked out. But his boast of record GDP growth and high credit ratings from lending institutions was “duh” for the masses. Perhaps Roxas inherited this antileftist attitude from his grandfather Manuel Roxas, president of the Philippines from 1946-1948. He has also made himself available for media interviews and for audiences with foreign diplomats, politicians and other prominent personalities who have trooped to his place in Davao City to personally congratulate him or to have a dialogue with him. This early, he warns erring policemen and law enforcement officers to perform their duties or get out of the service. Perhaps, we can say that Duterte is the “anointed” one to govern the country for the next six years. If there is a strong agreement from the meeting and concrete implementation, the market will react to this,” he added.

Without further ado, we present to you our favorite new smartphone bling from the last fortnight: ProtonMail, MailTime, Kids in Touch, Nack, Freeletics.
Gross domestic product grew 6.9 percent in the first quarter of 2016, the fastest among the top five members of the Asean.
It will be best served by letting the monetary authorities decide what’s best for the local financial system, and the executives who will take up the top posts in budget and finance will do well to exhibit the same passion for fiscal discipline. Despite the gains in employment, underemployment remains a big problem, and job satisfaction is a big issue especially among those living on the minimum wage and finding it hard to make ends meet. If the presumptive President-elect plays his cards right, brighter days are indeed ahead for Asia’s bright spot. You still have the gumption to face the people,” directing her words at the outgoing leader’s face shown on the video wall. One potent fact cannot be relegated to the dustbin of oblivion—so much public consciousness still remains about that part of the DAP that allegedly went to the reward money (to the tune of P50 million) for each of the 20 senator-judges who voted to impeach then Chief Justice Renato Corona.
Aquino has not been seen nor heard to issue marching orders to fix the problem in both controversies, especially to an airport manager who is family to him. That the creative public mind has been prolific in coining the graphic nomenclatures like kaibigan and kabarilan  (add to these, noynoying) should be no small matter. The signs seem to indicate he has not, and the criticisms against his appointments must be taken as reasonable public indicators, to say the least.
This one seems to be no different—enough talks of a Justin Trudeau Cabinet of cultural diversity and meritocracy.
In a number of these cases, the whistle-blowers were employees who assisted their employer-companies to accomplish the fraud, and they provided information that showed the trail of corruption. The bill was a virtual duplicate of the US law; the point was, if it has already proven effective elsewhere, why reinvent the wheel? These agencies largely rely on the possibility that, by chance, a conscience-stricken employee of the private contractor will squeal on the thievery of public funds. The bigger the government’s loss, the bigger the reward for the whistle-blower, and, as a consequence, the bigger the possibility that an employee will come out of the contractor’s house to provide government investigators with explosive evidence. On the other hand, the Commission on Audit (COA) has reported that out of national budget expenditures, the government lost P102 billion to graft and corruption in 2011 alone.
Many are also about neglect and lack of development, and, as such, cannot be solved by humanitarian action alone. Extreme weather events, such as those associated with El Nino, wreak havoc across wide swathes of the rural areas of the developing world, animal diseases disrupt food chains, and wars force millions to abandon their homes, fields and livestock and become migrants at a scale not seen since World War II. Around the globe, plenty of evidence exists on the benefits of this, and on how it reduces the need for emergency interventions. This is a fraction of the economic cost of food aid, not to mention the dramatic human costs.
When man landed on the moon in 1969, Ambeth Ocampo chronicled, we celebrated Gloria Diaz’s winning Miss Universe.
Ronald Jeresano, the 2008 winner, has astronauts float behind his trademark pink-skinned Filipino in dark jeans as he walks in contentment across the heavens.
Japanese artists painted an odd Andres Bonifacio with orange pupils in 2014, his 150th birth anniversary. It was unveiled in 2013, together with small paintings sold at 10 times a Filipino’s price.
There is nothing arrogant or insolent about 17 million Filipinos choosing Duterte for their next president. The name of a Massachusetts supporter kept appearing in the list of recommendees for government positions but had been crossed out by JFK. It is not clear if this was his intent or he was merely resting his tired head between his hands. The boy would finish at De La Salle University with a commerce degree, majoring in financial institutions.
The plan would reduce historical high dependence on oil by transforming how Saudi Arabia generates income, as well as how it spends and manages its vast resources.
Early successes are often needed to solidify the overwhelming buy-in of key constituencies, particularly those that naturally may be resistant to change at first (especially change that eliminates some of the traditional financial entitlements in moving from a familiar, albeit less secure, present toward what is now an unfamiliar future).
How the Saudis proceed on this important economic restructuring is being closely watched by the other five members of the Gulf Cooperation Council—and by many other countries as well. If Saudi Arabia succeeds in transforming its economy, including reforming institutions and restructuring economic incentives, other countries that face similar challenges, in the region and beyond, will be inspired to follow suit. This ability (to speak straight English) implies that one studied or is studying in one of those exclusive expensive schools (here or abroad), for which only the elite can afford. Lolo  Roxas and his Liberal Party allies maneuvered to disqualify six elected congressmen from the Democratic Alliance party, a group of workers, peasants and intellectuals opposed to the Parity Rights Amendment.
My team is coordinating with his in order to work with depth over the next month on a smooth transition,” Purisima said. It outpaced China’s for the first time in 27 years and, despite the global economic weakness, was the highest quarterly growth in nearly three years and the 17th consecutive quarter of above-5-percent GDP expansion. The BPO industry continued to grow robustly and now employs 1.3 million Filipinos and accounts for 8 percent of GDP.
During the past six years, the administration boosted spending on education by 125 percent, social services by 166 percent, health by 336 percent, and infrastructure by 360 percent.
Aquino’s sins of commission and omission even before the elections of May 9, as if doing so would bring about a kind of national catharsis. Aquino’s machinations and the use of bribery by an administration that claims to be righteous by the people.
The Mamasapano massacre and the missing “Yolanda” funds will continue to be broken refrains until those guilty will be brought to the bars of justice. It must be continually emphasized that this was something unexpected of a President whose message of incorruptibility was his presidential theme.
To underestimate the public now—as it had been underestimated before—for its “ignorance” of the political wheeling and dealing happening is a grave mistake. There is no reward for the risk to life and limb, except the patriotic feeling of having done a good deed for the motherland.
This has been the sad history of leader-dependent crusades in a country like the Philippines. Archie preaches that street art is more raw and closer to the public, its inherent vulnerability to damage adding to its charm.
When the name reappeared one more time, he told his brother Bobby that the fellow was an SOB, and should be dropped. This was followed by law studies at the UP College of Law where he would be awarded the Dean’s Medal for Academic Excellence. It is supported by detailed action plans, the initial implementation of which has already involved headline-grabbing institutional changes in a country long known for caution and gradualism. Its pastoral-electoral guideline, in fact, was short of saying, “Do not vote for Duterte.” Still, Duterte garnered more than 16 million votes which surely included votes from Catholics. Grace Poe presented a lineup of good programs but would not have gotten more votes even if she campaigned wearing a duster. What we can all do now as a nation is to wish him well and to pray for the success of his administration. You ready?: Cube Escape Theatre, EvilBane Rise of Ravens, Guns of Infinity, Deck of Fate, Doomsday Clicker. Overseas Filipino workers remained steadfast in sending billions of dollars to their beneficiaries at home, helping fuel consumption spending.
Infrastructure spending deserves special attention, with a focus needed on how to speed up the public-private partnership program.
Go home!), screamed one woman as the face of the outgoing president appeared on the giant screen.
Thus it has begun an accounting of classmates—kaklase—from grade school, high school, law school, even a dormitory roommate (“Perfecto Yasay, gulp!” said one). There were also efforts in the House of Representatives to pass a measure giving rewards of P50,000 to P200,000 to those who blow the whistle on corruption in the government, but even that was never approved.
Just that, perhaps, the people saw in Duterte his promise of providing more for basic needs (health, education and homes) and his anticrime program as more realizable. Aquino never learned from the repugnant tag “Kamaganak Inc.” that hounded his mother’s presidency. These failed efforts speak volumes on the lack of serious intent in Congress to fight corruption. Teodoro would move on to Harvard for his masters in law and admission to the bar of the State of New York.
His political career would take him to three terms in Congress, serving as head of the Nationalist People’s Coalition in the House of Representatives. You can be sure what public ridicule will hound Manila International Airport Authority head Jose Angel Honrado the moment he steps down.
