TOKYO—Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said Friday he has decided to temporarily suspend preliminary work on moving a Marine Corps base on Okinawa and will resume talks on the contentious relocation plan. The central government and Okinawa’s prefectural government have been locked in a legal battle over relocating the base, with both sides suing the other.
Abe said that his government is accepting a court proposal not to force the reclamation work over Okinawa’s objections.
The work involves filling in part of a bay to create off-coast runways for Futenma air station, which is now in a more densely populated area on the island. Opponents want the base moved off Okinawa entirely, and a prospect for a compromise is still unclear. America’s top military official in the Pacific said last month that the relocation plan has been pushed back by two years until 2025 from the current target, because of delays from the disputes. The US has agreed to shift 8,000 to 10,000 Marines off Okinawa in the 2020s, mainly to Guam and Hawaii, but Adm. The southern island prefecture is home to about half of about 50,000 American troops stationed in Japan under the bilateral security treaty. Government prosecutors have already finished presentation of evidence before the Court of Tax Appeals Second Division in connection with the tax evasion case filed against former military comptroller Jacinto Ligot and his wife Erlinda.
With the prosecution resting its case, the Tax Court gave them 30 days to submit their formal offer of evidence while the defense was given 15 days to submit their comment. A formal offer of evidence means that the offering party shall inform the court of the purpose of introducing its exhibits into evidence, to assist the court in ruling on their admissibility in case the adverse party objects. Without a formal offer of evidence, courts cannot take notice of this evidence even if this has been previously marked and identified. The Tax Court then set May 4, 2016 for the turn of the accused to present their own evidence. The Ligot couple is facing several tax evasion cases for violating Articles 254 and 255 of the National Internal Revenue Code for attempting to evade payment of tax from 2002 to 2004.
The couple allegedly incurred a total deficiency tax of P153.2 million for 2003, exclusive of interest and penalty charges. According to the recent Pulse Asia survey, which was conducted among 1,800 registered voters, Senator Grace Poe and Vice President Jejomar Binay may likely win the presidential elections if it was held from February 15 to 20. Poe (26 percent) and Binay (25 percent) were statistically tied for first place while the ruling Liberal Party’s bet, former secretary Roxas and Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte were close behind, both with a preference rating of 21 percent. Roxas has repeatedly vowed to continue President Benigno Aquino III’s Daang Matuwid reform agenda.
MANDAUE CITY, Cebu–Should Senator Grace Poe be disqualified from the presidential race, Vice President Jejomar Binay will largely benefit from it, said Liberal Party standard-bearer Manuel “Mar” Roxas II. The former Interior secretary is here in Cebu to campaign in the province that delivered the most number of votes for Roxas when he ran as vice president in the 2010 national elections. The robust economic growth during the Aquino administration has seen domestic wealth getting so large that the richest Filipinos have landed in Forbes magazine’s annual listing of the world’s billionaires.
The latest tally released by the international publication the other day showed 11 Filipinos making it to the roster dominated by US-based entrepreneurs. Inquirer columnist and former economic planning secretary Cielito Habito has noted that in certain parts of the world, economic growth led to poverty reduction.
Economists here and abroad have identified various ways as to how businesses can help alleviate poverty.
The movie “Heneral Luna” forced me to open my long-neglected files to uncover primary-source material I had dug up over the years and completely forgotten.
In my files I found unpublished correspondence and diaries from the cache of materials once owned by the noted architect Andres Luna de San Pedro, son of the ill-fated painter Juan Luna.
Other materials on Antonio Luna I dug up in the Rare Book Room of the National Library, gathered from what were previously known as the “Philippine Insurgent Records.” These were renamed the “Philippine Revolutionary Records” (or “PRR”), the originals of which were turned over to the Philippines by the US National Archives and Records Administration in 1958, during the state visit of President Carlos P. While I was doing my research, I often asked about a missing document in a box or found a misfiled document in another.
For the curious, I am reproducing my translation of the inventory of Antonio Luna’s property, conducted after his assassination.
When I went over Antonio Luna’s papers at the Heritage Art Gallery, I was shown a box with a bloodied uniform that I presume was not the one he was wearing when he was murdered, because it bore no bullet or dagger holes. What follows may seem like a trivial list of personal effects, but they give us an insight into the kind of man Antonio Luna was.
Although no reports of deaths or of major damage emerged, with authorities eventually lifting tsunami warnings, the earthquake triggered fear among not just Indonesians but also other people living in the bigger neighborhood of the Indonesian archipelago, particularly in the so-called Pacific Ring of Fire. Rodolfo, who was in town recently, says we have two choices on what to do to brace for the coming earthquake—for, regardless of when it does occur, the “Big One” is surely coming. Rodolfo is referring to two projects involving reclamation of land from bodies of water and building on the reclaimed area. Opponents of both projects are understandably anxious that the government (including whoever wins in the May elections) could simply approve the proposals, given the “big names” backing them. Ranged against these big names in real estate commercial development is a motley group of concerned citizens, including Church officials, fisher families, schools, cultural workers, urban poor groups and historians. It’s a scene straight out of a disaster movie, but not even the best CGI effects would approximate the suffering and devastation a real-life earthquake could wreak. We had a foretaste of the chaos and pain with the “shake drill” conducted last year, even if everyone knew it was just pretend. Once upon a time, a group of small schoolchildren found themselves staring mystified at a wooden door that was about to open. This was how we were in our public elementary school, where the library was strangely off-limits to us pupils except when we had to clean it before guests and school supervisors arrived.
But between those days of waiting to be a library cleaner and now, I gradually became convinced that had Filipino pupils been encouraged to actually read those locked-up books—instead of just having to dust them—we would be doing much better as a nation now. Pragmatic reading is the kind of reading that many Filipinos have come to learn and carry into adulthood.
What makes it excellent is that the whole time you are riding John Grisham’s rising action or falling for John Green’s characters, you are also acquiring a wider vocabulary, developing a keener sense for literature, and discovering your own preferences.
Leisurely reading indicates that you have gone past the mere basics taught in school, and have developed your own personal appreciation for reading itself.
When such a material lands on your lap, there is no other way to read it but to read it deeply, carefully. That’s the kind of nation we could have become had we been encouraged to read—and read deeply—right from a tender age. A 2014 global study also found that Filipinos spent some 7.6 hours per week reading—ranking us fourth among 30 countries in terms of time spent reading. When Inquirer Opinion editorial assistant Tintin Ang-Buban texted me to follow up on my column, I replied that I needed a bit more time because I was in Hong Kong. That’s one perception of Hong Kong which I have to say has basis: The place is crammed with shops that look alike, with names that repeat themselves every other block. The plane to Hong Kong was packed with people who, I could tell from their conversations, were looking forward to shopping. I finally arrived at the hotel, where I was to attend an event organized by the international weekly magazine The Economist. I decided to say yes after checking online on where we were to be billeted: the Hotel Icon.
Intrigued, I e-mailed the hotel officials in advance and asked if I could meet the administrators. The hotel site used to be a dorm, but the university’s planners wisely decided that they could build the dorm elsewhere and build a hotel instead, to be run by professionals as a training site for their hotel and tourism management (HTM, instead of the Filipino HRM) students.
On the 10th floor there are innovation rooms, not used by guests but somewhat like learning labs where students get to think up new ideas for the room designs, with emphasis on meeting special needs—for example, of persons with disabilities. Some of the best innovations are in the “little” things, like guests being provided with a smartphone which can be used for local and international calls, and which generates a wireless hotspot one can use with one’s Philippine phone as one roams the city. Amid the high tech, the hotel has found a way to bring in nature, exemplified by a vertical garden that rises from the ground floor to the third floor, 8,000 plants, 200 species, all indigenous. I thought of our UP Asian Institute of Tourism which many years ago had a hotel, too, with rooms donated by Manila’s five-star hotels.  Alas, the hotel has closed down but the current dean, Miguela Mena, who turned out to have studied at Hong Kong Polytechnic University, is interested in reviving something like it. Some years back, when I visited the Chinese University of Hong Kong, I was told that the government had generous scholarships for foreign students.
I would point out that Hong Kong’s universities are among the world’s best now, still trailing behind Singapore and Japan but moving up the ranks.  In fact, during this trip the South China Morning Post’s front page featured a new “robo-op” developed by the University of Hong Kong and the Polytechnic University. The Chinese government is investing heavily in education, both in the mainland and in Hong Kong, which includes hiring professors from the United States and Europe. The Philippines is moving in the other direction, from a four-year to a six-year high school, which should mean that five- and six-year degree programs like engineering, veterinary medicine and food technology, could probably be reduced by a year. The petition filed by senatorial aspirant Richard Gordon at the Supreme Court to compel the Commission on Elections to activate the voter-verified paper audit trail (VVPAT) feature in the vote counting machines must have come as a surprise to the people who thought the 2010 and 2013 elections were conducted in accordance with the Automated Election Law. The VVPAT enables voters to check if the ballots they cast were correctly read by the machines through a receipt that shows the names of the candidates for whom they voted. The law states that the automated election system must have at least the “functional capability to … provide the voter a system of verification to find out whether or not the machine has registered his choice.” In spite of this mandatory requirement, however, the past leadership of the Comelec did not provide this mechanism in the 2010 and 2013 elections. When this issue was brought up again in a congressional oversight hearing, the Comelec cited “time and motion studies” that showed printing a tape receipt would take 12 seconds, or the equivalent of two hours if there are 600 voters in a polling precinct. The voters’ review of the receipt will add at least five hours to the voting process, or seven hours in all, thus extending the planned 7 a.m. How the past Comelec was able to get away with the omission of the VVPAT in two elections is a puzzler. Neither did it catch the attention of the joint congressional committee that the law created to monitor and evaluate automated elections every 12 months from the date of the last regular national or local elections. Until Congress deletes this requirement from the law, the Comelec is obliged to include it among the security features of the counting machines and inform the voters of its existence. The Comelec cannot be faulted for expressing apprehension that the implementation of the VVPAT would slow down the voting process.
The payback for the delay, assuming it will be in the magnitude feared by the Comelec, is the voters’ assurance and confidence that their choice of candidates was correctly read and recorded. What’s more, the receipts will come in handy in the event that questions arise about the accuracy of the results of the canvass of votes. This should not be taken to mean that the Comelec cannot be trusted to competently and efficiently supervise the May elections, and the machines to faithfully record the voters’ choice of the people they want to run the government.
While the men and women who will staff the precincts can be relied upon to do their duties and responsibilities with integrity, the electoral process will gain more credibility and, in the process, contribute to political stability, if all the features required by law to make it clean are implemented.
The Comelec’s concern that the receipts can be used for vote-buying and vote-selling cannot be discounted. To counter this scheme, it has been suggested that after the receipt is reviewed by the voter, he or she will be directed to drop it in a ballot box reserved for this purpose.
With the clock ticking for the May elections, putting in place the mechanism to make the VVPAT operational will be a challenge for the Comelec. The only way the Comelec can “legally” avoid implementing the VVPAT is for the Supreme Court to dismiss the petition and cite one reason or another to justify that action, similar to what it did in the case of Sen. If that happens, the credibility of the May elections will be put in doubt and the Automated Election Law amended by judicial fiat. WASHINGTON, DC—Infrastructure is a powerful driver of economic growth and inclusive development, capable of boosting aggregate demand today and laying the foundations for future growth. In the next 15 years, more than $90 trillion in infrastructure investment will be needed worldwide. As it stands, more than 80 percent of the world’s primary energy supply and more than two-thirds of its electricity are derived from fossil fuels. But shifting to renewable energies and sustainable infrastructure can have the opposite impact, helping to mitigate greenhouse-gas emissions while enhancing countries’ resilience to climate change.
Fortunately, the political will to take action to mitigate climate change has never been stronger. Policymakers must clearly articulate overall strategies for sustainable infrastructure investment, and embed them in comprehensive frameworks for sustainable growth and development.
But, given severe fiscal constraints in many countries, public investment alone is not enough; the private sector will still have to meet more than half of the total need. To ensure that new investment is oriented toward sustainable infrastructure, policymakers must also adjust market incentives.
On the other hand, fiscal and financial innovation will be needed to capture the potential of new technologies. Meanwhile, new financial instruments and the resourceful use of development capital can leverage more private finance and lower its cost.

In Internet slang, a troll is a person who sows discord on the Internet by starting arguments or upsetting people, by posting inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community (such as a newsgroup, forum, chat room, or blog) with the deliberate intent of provoking readers into an emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion, often for their own amusement. One who posts a deliberately provocative message to a newsgroup or message board with the intention of causing maximum disruption and argument.
Internet trolls are virtual sociopaths or persons with personality disorder manifesting itself in extreme antisocial attitudes and behavior, and a lack of conscience. The Internet now being a market or dimension of its own in human life, it has to accommodate the deviants among its members. What makes trolling even more massive and damaging is that fake accounts in social media are allowed. It is my view that technology, the Internet, and social media will cause a major shift in human consciousness. What was so “nutritious” about the martial law era that we “eat” it every day and defend its “palatability”? It is so alarming that many millennials are now learning their history through shared Facebook posts on Ferdinand Marcos’ “greatness,” on why he was the “greatest of all,” on how “better” the Philippines was during his rule. NEW YORK, United States—The oil market took a cautious breather Thursday after three days of gains raised hopes that the ravaged market had finally found a floor. In London trade, Brent crude for May delivery edged up 14 cents to $37.07 a barrel, its best level since early January.
Both contracts rose over the past three days amid hopeful signs of a tighter market—slowly falling US production and talk among Russia and OPEC members of holding a meeting this month to agree a cap on output. But because any meeting—and it has not yet been set—would not lower output, and because crude stockpiles continue to mount in the United States and elsewhere, analysts said the new price levels remained frail. Crude, which in late January was wallowing near 13-year lows below $30 a barrel, has steadily picked up recently as dealers are buoyed by the fact there are talks by top producers on the market glut. A READER writes:  Is it true that the owner of Korean Air Lines and his shipping tycoon brother hate each other so much that they do not talk?  Business people in the public eye do not air dirty laundry in front of the world.  Is this a classic case of a family feud?  What caused the rift, and what could have prevented it?  As for the lady who got mad at a staff member of Korean Air, whose daughter is she?  Is family upbringing to blame? But you are right about one thing:  the rift among the four sons of Cho Choong Hoon, the patriarch of the Hanjin business empire in South Korea, erupted right after the latter’s passing in 2002. So even if, as you say, the Cho family has always been in the limelight in their native land, three years after their father’s passing, the three younger brothers united to fight against the eldest, because they felt that their father’s will was unfair.
The patriarch had divided the conglomerate as described above, but the brothers decided to battle it out.
They declined to discuss the details of the feud in public:  Cho Jung Ho told “Forbes Asia” that “detailed [media] coverage would be unproductive” because the disputes were at best a private matter. Could this have been prevented if the brothers were raised to watch out for each other?  After all, Asians are supposed to have strong family bonds, including respect for elders shown by Koreans. Perhaps, but then again, personal details revealed about this family would probably be in the realm of speculation.  Perhaps you can direct this question to Biz Buzz!
When Cho Jung Ho broke away from the fold in 2005, he decided to buckle down to create an empire based on merit rather than family ties. His companies, which he renamed as Meritz Financial, have made him a billionaire, a lot more than what his eldest brother and nemesis has earned through Korean Air.
The third brother has since passed away, while the second brother is on good terms with the youngest. The eldest appears to be isolated, but as with Korean soap operas, no one knows if a reconciliation would materialize in the future.
Troubles seem to be never-ending for the eldest brother, as his daughter, Cho Hyun Ah, made headlines around the world with her temper tantrum while in first class on a Korean Air flight in New York City in October 2014. Cho Hyun Ah reportedly got angry at and even slapped a steward who served her macadamia nuts in a bag instead of on a plate.
Charges were filed against her, she apologized in public, and so did her father.  She also resigned from the company. Was this temper tantrum a result of upbringing, you ask?  I don’t know.  But the following are some incidents reported by media after the incident.
Cho Hyun Ah went to the United States to give birth to twin boys, for them to secure US citizenship, which many people do.
However, many Koreans reportedly felt that she did this primarily so that her children do not have to render compulsory military service, like other Korean males when they come of age. Cho Hyun Ah’s brother reputedly would drive recklessly, and once, he even allegedly shoved an elderly woman who confronted him about his wild behavior, an incident that was investigated by the police. As for the father himself, he was convicted of tax evasion (with other members of the family) after purchasing planes from Boeing for the airline. The bidding for the Light Rail Transit Line 2 public-private partnership deal will be delayed further as the Department of Transportation and Communications gave prospective bidders more time to finalize their offers. In a bid bulletin, the department said pre-qualified bidders would be given nearly a month more to finalize their proposals.
Certain bidders also needed the extra time because of some changes in the composition of their consortia.
Ayala managing director John Eric Francia said yesterday they were still “hopeful” the project could be awarded before the change in the administration. The LRT-2 PPP deal is one of the projects exempted from the election ban that runs from March  25 through May 8, 2016. The 13.8-kilometer LRT-2 line runs from Recto Avenue to the Depot at Santolan Street along Marcos Highway. Apart from the existing LRT-2 line, the private sector partner will handle the operations and maintenance of LRT-2’s 4.14-km East Extension until Masinag, Antipolo, and any other future extensions implemented by the government during the project’s term. The DOTC said the P2.27-billion extension project would help serve an added 75,000 passengers per day living in densely populated areas of Rizal.


Last December, UOBP Collections Inc., the new non-bank arm, was registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission, Espenilla disclosed.
UOBL is one of the six Asian banks that the BSP had allowed to operate in the country under Republic Act No. Espenilla last January said the application of another Asian bank to establish operations here was pending with the BSP. Separately, the BSP also in January issued a certificate of authority to operate as a rural bank to Katipunan Bank Inc., the entity formed following the consolidation of Katipunan Bank (Zamboanga del Norte) Inc. In a text message, Espenilla said this consolidation was under the continuing Strengthening Program for Rural Banks (SPRB)-Plus. Espenilla earlier said the BSP was looking at modifying the SPRB-Plus to complement the new scheme under the Consolidation Program for Rural Banks or CPRB. The local stock barometer rallied closer to the 7,000 mark on Thursday as higher oil prices and news of another China stimulus plan improved investors’ risk appetite across the region. The partnership has earmarked about $105 million to $110 million to build this co-generation plant, RHI officials said on the sidelines of RHI’s recent annual stockholders’ meeting.
Scheduled for completion in 2018, the facility will rise in RHI’s complex near its Central Azucarera de la Carlota Inc. Moving forward, he said RHI would have three business segments—sugar milling, bioethanol production and power generation.
In the future, he said RHI should ideally have a third of business coming from each segment. Such a realignment, he said, would make RHI less vulnerable to the volatility of sugar prices. RHI president Hubert Tubio said that based on the current discussions, RHI would take a majority position in the joint venture. On the bioethanol business, Roxas said RHI accounted for about 60 percent of the market but with some new players coming in, he said this market share would likely drop.
This year, RHI has set aside P1.4 billion for capital spending, double the budget previously targeted. Of this amount, P600 million will be used for the ethanol business and P800 million for the sugar business. The country’s next President will be facing substantial economic challenges that include high poverty incidence and unemployment, inadequate infrastructure, a neglected agriculture and vulnerability to disasters, a former Cabinet secretary said yesterday. Speaking at a Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PCCI) meeting yesterday, Neri said “a passive, trickle down approach will not work in a country where the rates of poverty and joblessness are high,” as he stressed the importance of inclusive growth in addressing the country’s woes. Neri focused largely on the need for productivity-enhancing public infrastructure, which was needed to reduce production and logistics costs, enhance workers’ productivity, stimulate a second round of private sector investments in manufacturing, agribusiness and tourism. THE ANVIL Awards program is conducted annually by PRSP to encourage improved public relations performance and techniques. Last week, the Makati Shangri-La Rizal ballroom was packed with some 700 guests, mostly businessmen from the country’s top 50 corporations, to receive their Anvil trophies at the 51st Anvil Awards or the “Gabi ng Parangal” of the Public Relations Society of the Philippines (PRSP). Why are the country’s most prominent firms fiercely attracted to submit entries to win an Anvil trophy?
Each Anvil entry is painstakingly screened and weighed by 30 distinguished jurors chosen for their competence and integrity. Most winners of the Anvil Awards, whether they are in community relations or public service categories, are programs that help people in some way. The Anvil Awards program is conducted annually by PRSP to encourage improved public relations performance and techniques. To qualify for an award, a program must incorporate sound public relations objectives and philosophy, must show excellence in strategy and execution and must document tangible results that impact on the target audience. The winning programs are usually successful case studies in the areas of community relations, institutional programs, special events, public service, public affairs, marketing communications for new services, established services, new products or established products, crisis communications, internal communications and investor relations.
The first Grand Anvil was given to the Manila Times in 1963 for its program Operation Quick Count. Last Friday, Union Bank won the Gold Anvil for its project, Lumina Pandit, which is conserving, restoring, and digitizing the rare books and documents housed in the UST Miguel de Benavides archives, some of which date back to the 16th century.
By getting involved in Lumina Pandit, Union Bank aims to create public awareness of the existence of some 30,000 volumes of books that are currently being curated in UST’s library and to preserve and share the university’s priceless collections to a wider world. On the other hand, Warner TV (Turner Broadcasting System Asia-Pacific) won the highest Platinum Award for launching a new crime-thriller show with engaging interactive event that immersed guests into the worlds of these thrillers. Over the years, some of the consistent winners of the Anvil Awards have been the Shell Companies, Ayala Corporation, SN Aboitiz Power, Smart Communications, Globe Telecoms, Meralco, PLDT, Petron, Unilab, SM Corporation, PNOC, Manila Water, Maynilad, Unilever and many others. Student volunteers help entrepreneurs in Iloilo put up their company website during the Ureka e-commerce forum at the Iloilo Convention Center. ILOILO CITY—Joy Doronila-Palmada rang the bell amid applause from small and medium-scale entrepreneurs in Iloilo who attended a forum at the Iloilo Convention Center.
The ringing of the bell signaled that Pavia Entrepreneurs Multi-Purpose Cooperative (PEMPC), which Palmada chairs, now has a website and officially became part of the Ureka shops platform. The cooperative has about 700 members, mostly market vendors, jeepney drivers, municipal employees and small entrepreneurs in Pavia town in Iloilo. Among its services are low-interest loans, market management and helping members set up savings and time deposit accounts.
Palmada signed up the PEMPC to be part of the Ureka platform after attending the recent Ureka e-commerce forum at the Iloilo Convention Center. It was the second nationwide following a similar forum in Baguio City in October last year. The gatherings matched business experts, who provide insights on how the Internet can grow businesses, with the SMEs who need the help.
Among those who spoke at the forum was Silicon Valley billionaire Diosdado “Dado”  Banatao, chair of the Philippine Development Foundation.
Genaro Lapez, UnionBank executive vice president and Ureka proponent, said owners and operators of SMEs were aware of the need for an online presence, and it was important for UnionBank to prove that the technology was not as daunting as it seems.
He said studies showed that only a dismal 1 percent of registered SMEs in the Philippines have websites.
SMEs comprise 95 percent of registered business companies in country and  employ about 62 percent of the total workforce.
Generally, Internet use in the Philippines is growing significantly with Filipino Internet users spending an average of six hours a day online.
In the Visayas, presence in the e-commerce network will help boost tourism-related services offered by local tourism agencies and government offices. The marketing of handicrafts and other products in the region will also be benefited, he said. After attending the forum, pre-screened SMEs can register for a P500 fee and become part of the Ureka e-commerce platform.
They will have their full-feature website or e-portal, which includes payment channels that can also be used by buyers without credit cards or bank accounts. Lapez stressed that e-commerce was inevitable for SMEs and provides much wider opportunities because it transcends borders. Question:   We’re the same marketing major students who wrote you last Friday.  May we please request for a clearer explanation?
Along the way, I will focus on each of these categories’ coping market segments as the true sources of business-growing.  Among the three segments of maintainers, lapsers and non-users, I will concentrate on the last two segments. Here’s my reason for doing this.  Over the years of conducting consumer coping surveys, for entering a new market, I’ve learned that it’s in the market segments of lapsers and non-users where revenue productivity and business-growing opportunities are aplenty. As a percent of consumers, lapsers or the underserved consumers were largest in Mindanao at 53 percent.
How do all the preceding provide you with a good answer to your question about where in Asean to market a product category?  Let’s say that your commercial bank has a client into canned fish manufacturing who is interested in entering Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand.   If this bank will commission a consumer coping survey and analyze as we did above, then the bank can correctly advise this corporate client about its question regarding the country to effectively market first. Here’s a data analysis exercise for you to play with on the consumer coping survey data by region for the consumer service category of food court. 29, 2015, file photo shows Henoko of Nago City, Okinawa prefecture, where the Japanese government plans to relocate a US air base from one area of Okinawa?’s main island to another.
The relocation is based on a 20-year-old bilateral agreement to reduce the burden of the US military presence on Okinawa. Harry Harris, head of the US Pacific Command, said that would happen after Futenma’s relocation. Poe, however, used to have a higher preference rating (at 30 percent) while Binay followed (at 23 percent). Shouldn’t it be a source of pride in the corporate world to see Filipino entrepreneurs making it big? He said that although certain countries in Asia were successful in translating economic growth to poverty reduction—with every one percentage point of gross domestic product growth resulting in poverty reduction of one to two percentage points—poverty in the Philippines has not been reduced by its GDP growth. The Philippines in fact missed its Millennium Development Goal of halving poverty incidence to 17 percent by 2015 from 34 percent in 1991, as one in every four Filipinos has remained poor. Starting from the Arroyo administration, it has been providing direct assistance to extremely poor families through social protection programs.
The most common is for companies to transfer profits to charitable causes targeting the poor.
It is very clear that the private sector must do its part if the nation is to address what is described as one of the biggest moral challenges of this century. The Luna brothers Antonio and Juan are worth dedicated research because their lives are the stuff of legend, and their stories worth setting into novel or film. All these papers, much of which I was not able to photocopy, were unfortunately destroyed in a fire that gutted the Heritage Art Gallery on Lantana Street in Cubao, Quezon City, three decades ago.
The explanation was that certain papers and record groups had been moved around from their original boxes and folders because someone initiated an ill-advised attempt at refiling by name. Occurring in the Indian Ocean, the tremor struck off the coast of Padang, a city on the west coast of Sumatra. Metro Manila in particular is considered to be “long overdue” for the “Big One,” an earthquake expected to result in the deaths of thousands (maybe even in the hundreds of thousands) and immeasurable damage to property. One involves the construction of the proposed Laguna Lakeshore Expressway Dike, which calls for the building of an alternative expressway on top of a dike built on land reclaimed from Laguna de Bay. But the really strange thing is that, despite this foreknowledge, our government and private developers persist in pursuing projects that will endanger even more lives and put us all in peril.
It was said that behind the door was a room of treasures, the kind that very few chosen pupils had ever laid hands on.
I think the arrangement was mostly well-intentioned: The school had to protect the precious books from our dingy little hands because our library wasn’t at all well-stocked. All it takes is a few paragraphs of a good book—which you read at your own choice, at your own pace—and you could be in for an enjoyable ride. Just because you devour romance pocketbooks doesn’t mean you are exhausting the benefits of literature. Not just a string of practical facts or a roller-coaster plot, but a cache of well-placed details, techniques, and substance aimed to leave an impact on you. Picture, for instance, how those citizens might vote, lobby for laws, and act in their communities. In recent years, there seems to have been greater interest in literature among Philippine readers.
There’s a wealth of art, science, and emotional and mental stimulation available to anyone who reads.
In the hotel shuttle from the airport, there was a group of Filipinos whose conversation confused me initially with references to “bato” (stones), until I realized they were in the city for the Hong Kong International Diamond, Gem and Pearl Show, combined with the HK International Jewellery Show.  With 4,300 exhibitors, that makes for a lot of bato. In the train we passed forested mountains, and I was reminded that some 75 percent of its land area is considered countryside.  There’s a lot of hiking and bird-watching, and even just nature appreciation, that can be done there.
I carefully vet each invitation to see if it’s worthwhile taking time off from the University of the Philippines, where the workload is staggering.
I found, to my surprise, that it is run by Hong Kong Polytechnic University’s School of Hotel and Tourism Management. They replied immediately, and arranged for a meeting and a tour which were held a few hours after I arrived, with Samrina Cheung, director of human capital, and Angela Yip, training manager (and main coordinator for student trainees). The tourism school is itself located on several floors of the hotel, with the most modern facilities.
There’s an ongoing exhibit on Hong Kong’s history which draws from ecology and archaeology to reconstruct the past. The National Movement for Free Elections and the Parish Pastoral Council for Responsible Voting either overlooked this breach or, if they knew about it, thought it was too minor to fuss about. It is aimed at ensuring that the machines accurately read the votes cast by a voter, and the voter gets the assurance that his or her choice of candidates has been properly recorded.
But that’s a small price to pay for transparency and accuracy in the recording and canvassing of votes. This apprehension rests on the assumption that the voter can take hold of the receipt, bring it out of the precinct and show it to whoever offered to buy his or her vote as proof of compliance with the deal. Without a receipt, whoever offered to buy his or her vote will just have to rely on the voter’s word about the names of the candidates the latter ticked off in the ballot.
Juan Ponce Enrile when it invoked “humanitarian reasons” (a justification that is not sanctioned by law or the Constitution) to allow him to post bail in the plunder case filed against him. That is more than twice the value of the entire stock of infrastructure today, and requires total annual investment to increase from $2.5-3 trillion to above $6 trillion. But it also represents a profound opportunity to create the underpinnings of a more sustainable future. If climate risks are factored into investment decisions, renewable energies, cleaner transport, efficient water systems, and smarter, more resilient cities will emerge as the best bets. At last December’s UN climate conference in Paris, world leaders reached a landmark agreement to work toward a more sustainable future, including by transforming the way infrastructure projects are developed, financed and implemented. Delivering sustainable infrastructure at scale will require strong public policy leadership and responsive private-sector entrepreneurship. While specific policy actions and priorities must be tailored to individual countries’ circumstances, the main elements of sustainable infrastructure agendas can broadly be captured under four Is: investment, incentives, institutions and innovation.
This requires a reversal of the broadly negative public-investment trend in the last two decades. Efforts to reduce policy risks and costs of doing business can help spur the private sector to scale up investment considerably. The elimination of fossil-fuel subsidies and the implementation of carbon pricing are particularly important; with oil prices very low, now is the ideal time for countries to implement such reforms. Strong institutions are needed to ensure the feasibility, quality and impact of that investment. On one hand, technological innovation will be needed to provide increasingly efficient components of low-carbon, climate-resilient infrastructure.
The creative use of fiscal space will enable the mobilization of more financing for sustainable infrastructure.
Promoting infrastructure as an asset class could help attract more savings toward infrastructure.
With the right approach, we can achieve both goals simultaneously, building a more prosperous and sustainable future. There is hardly anything else in human history that is so life-changing at such a short period of time.
Societies have a justice system to sort out social deviants and a penal system of jails and prisons to contain the more dangerous among them. There is always someone who wants to hurt or destroy the reputation of others for various reasons. In fact, it seems they never seem to disappear despite efforts of legitimate media outfits to police their own ranks. Like their paid counterparts in traditional tri-media, Internet trolls exploit the general ignorance of social media users in many issues. With this, it is not only sociopaths that innocent netizens have to contend with, but sociopaths with fake identities.
They will also be a powerful platform that can bring light to the darkness that has helped perpetuate poverty in the world.
Until a prohibitive system against them is put in place, netizens will have to depend on their vigilance and intelligence to fend for themselves. But everyone makes mistakes, and hopefully, the Cho clan has learned bitter lessons, instructive for all of us, however fascinating they might be.
It  calls for the private sector to operate and maintain the existing line for a period of 10 years, extendable by another five years. The first deal, the P65-billion PPP project to operate and expand the Light Rail Transit Line 1 to Cavite province, was won by the Light Rail Manila Consortium of Ayala Corp.
That will mean a target completion of 2018 or about two years from the start of the project,” RHI chair Pedro Roxas said.
It is a tribute, an accolade bestowed by the PRSP for exceptional PR (public relations) programs. But to win an Anvil Award from the PRSP, you need to present a well-documented public relations program or tool that has solved some of the country’s most critical issues including public safety, economy, education, health, environmental protection, or the preservation of our cultural and historical heritage. PR programs conducted by businesses and industries, PR firms and not-for-profit organizations are all eligible.
The program greatly minimized anomalies during the 1961 presidential elections, which was won by then Vice President Diosdado Macapagal over incumbent President Carlos Garcia.
If we can create a society of Anvil awardees, it will be a cinch that by 2020 we can become the next Asian tiger.
This will also provide information about our services and best practices and experiences,”Palmada said.
20 was the first mass signing up in the Visayas of small and medium enterprises (SMEs) to the e-commerce system.
Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe decided on March 4 to suspend work on moving a US Marine base and talk about the contentious relocation on the southern island of Okinawa. Then the central government sued to reverse the order, to which Okinawa counter-sued, seeking a court injunction.
The posturing is wearing thin as reality is catching up with those increasingly unable to withstand scrutiny,” Presidential Spokesperson Edwin Lacierda said in a text message.


Economist Benjamin Diokno even challenged this figure, arguing that the real poverty picture might be worse than what the official statistics suggested.
The biggest is the CCT (conditional cash transfer) scheme, in which these families receive cash assistance provided they fulfill requirements for free child immunization and send their children to school. Another way is for manufacturers and other firms to reduce the prices of their goods and services. I cannot get over the fact that the Luna papers survived the Philippine-American War and the Battle of Manila in 1945, only to fall prey to faulty wiring and a gallery that was a firetrap in all senses of the word.
But in Manila in the past half-century, the PRR has been subjected to theft, high humidity, rodents, neglect, and other enemies of books and documents.
Another explanation or excuse for the difficulty of tracing certain documents using the US catalogue was that an earthquake knocked the document boxes off the shelves and the papers were haphazardly returned to boxes by untrained staff. Jose Alejandrino, and these consisted of: one rifle, one Mauser, one espadin (either a rapier or a dress sword), ammunition, and a pair of binoculars. Of course, as geologist Kelvin Rodolfo says, the temblor could occur tomorrow, next week, next month, or in the next few years. The other is the reclamation of land from Manila Bay, aimed at creating an “urban waterfront development with space for commercial activities” that will also serve as a “coastal sea barrier” along with an expressway. The renowned geologist who is most famous in the Philippines for his pioneering work on lahar in the wake of the 1990 Northern Luzon earthquake, has visited the country from Wisconsin where he currently resides after retiring from his university post, just to spread the word and introduce and popularize scientific concepts and data to back assertions about the dangers posed by both projects. Now, these particular children were finally going to have the privilege of entering this legendary room themselves.
This was also why library cleaners were specifically chosen, like an elite group plucked out of the Daily Sweepers chart. Our teachers didn’t lack the persistence to guide even the slowest learners in our class through the whole passage of “Henny Penny.” Our textbooks always had reading comprehension tests at the end of every reading selection. We read because we were required to; we read to know facts, to answer quizzes, to get the grade.
A novel to offer you a moral, a scientific article to make you think of implications, a short story to allow you to formulate your own hypotheses.
Hong Kong, I will admit, has not been appealing because I think of the crowds and noise, as well as rude shop keepers and taxi drivers.  But then I remembered a trip some years back which proved quite pleasant.
When I offered the scholarships to some of our faculty members, they would ask if the universities were good, and whether they had to learn Mandarin Chinese or Cantonese.
It used to have a seven-year high school system, so college courses like the hospitality and tourism management degree required only three years.  Now it has shifted to a six-year high school system, so the HTM degree will take four years. The fact that in the past the Comelec decided against activating this measure does not justify its continuing disregard in the May elections. Done badly, infrastructure is a major part of the problem; done right, it is a major part of the solution. Around 75 percent of this investment will have to take place in the developing world, particularly middle-income countries, owing to their growth needs, rapid urbanization, and already-large infrastructure backlogs. If the world follows the same old approaches in building new infrastructure, it would lock in polluting, resource-intensive, and unsustainable pathways to growth. Only with such integrated strategies can policymakers offer the level of policy coherence needed not just to maximize the effectiveness of each policy, but also to instill confidence in the private sector to do its part. Particularly important is the capacity to develop strong project pipelines and institutional frameworks for public-private partnerships. That is why investment in research and development—especially in renewable-energy technologies—must also increase significantly. And there will be more space as carbon taxes raise substantial revenue for governments (and improve the tax structure). As it stands, assets under management by banks and institutional investors worldwide amount to more than $120 trillion, of which infrastructure accounts for only about 5 percent.
At the moment, there is little in the virtual world that can counter the human and social harm that internet trolls cause to many. There ought to be, and I believe there will be, but we have some waiting to do.
Over time, however, those practitioners develop a reputation, the AC-DC type, attack-collect, defend-collect.
It does not help that Filipinos as a whole do not go out of their way to trace the source of news, much less their accuracy and integrity.
Political campaigns in the Philippines are only starting to awaken to the power of social media and netizens cannot yet discern quickly the real and the fake. In VMC, they are just a minority and here, they are the majority and we have more resources and assets in RHI. In the 51st Anvil Awards, it was Metrobank Foundation’s turn to win the Hall of Fame prize.
He is also the chair and CEO of Grupo Agatep, an integrated marketing communications agency based in Pasig City.
And against the bigger backdrop of Philippine economic growth remaining noninclusive, much expectation is directed at the country’s wealthiest. The government is also boosting tax collection to fund a universal health program and improve access to basic education. Businesses can also employ more people since job generation has been proven to address poverty. Only Juan Luna’s paintings now in the National Museum and the Bank of the Philippine Islands were saved from destruction.
Fortunately for scholars, the US National Archives donated along with the original manuscripts a microfilm in 636 rolls that will take more than a lifetime to mine. But it’s clear that with all the warning signs we’ve received and the studies conducted by foreign and homegrown experts, we have to start preparing now to mitigate the damage that the predicted earthquake will bring. By getting prices right and reforming regulation to correct distorted incentives, governments can put markets to work in support of public-policy goals. With around 70 percent of total investment in sustainable infrastructure occurring in urban areas, close attention must also be paid to the quality of municipal institutions, as well as cities’ fiscal capacities. The massiveness of use of social media today where almost half of Filipinos are active, especially with Facebook, is akin to the massiveness of shopping malls. It used to be that dirty media practitioners were the only ones who were the mercenaries of black ops. And I do not even include the less controversial “praise release” players because public relations in media will always be there, in a democracy or a dictatorship. There is an actual situation of information overload that needs some effort to declassify in order to ascertain truth from deliberate lies in partisan issues, political or otherwise. It seems to me that the freedom of information bill that some advocacies are trying to push has better focus as well on identifying trolls with fake identities. It becomes crucial that the light brought about by information-on-demand is not discolored by the pollution of deception. It is failing not because we have produced worse leaders but because we have a collective memory gotten “worse.” Forgetfulness kills the spirit.
Many on the list, in trying to meet the expectation, have donated large sums to higher education, environment protection, and housing, among other programs designed to ease the plight of the poor.
Another suggestion is for companies to prioritize the welfare of their own staff members by paying them more or providing them with training or support. If you want to locate a document using the US National Archives catalogue, you may use the microfilm, not the originals.
This is the kind of reading that transforms “Henny Penny” readers into more analytical, more learned, and more empathetic persons. For developing economies, multilateral development banks will be a key partner in building capacity and catalyzing financing. So, imagine these malls with Christmas approaching, and one gets an idea of how the campaign period is approaching the May elections. They are quite visible in greater society, in our communities, and sadly, sometimes in our own families.
The growth of social media, however, is changing landscapes and there is now more business opportunities for budding psychopaths. The most dangerous of all trolls are groups of trolls following conductors—the orchestrated guns for hire. They not only harm personal reputations, they not only twist the truth, but they give a very ugly and dark picture of the Philippines as well to global users of social media. Somehow, netizens must step up and become all the wiser, not all the more naive, because life without the Internet and all it brings may soon be only a memory.
There is a study in the United Kingdom showing that poverty in modern Britain was caused as much by low-quality, low-paid employment as unemployment. To date, only my former student Amiel Palma Angeles has gone through most of the records for his PhD. After all, as trolls cater to their inner psychological affliction, they can also make under-the-table money in doing so. If business is to reduce poverty, it is this that it should focus on, according to the study.
I’m talking more people getting copies of Sylvia Plath or Lualhati Bautista—and proudly posting on social media about these books. The democratized nature of social media is its availability to a greater number and the capacity of this greater number to be players, not just spectators. This is very applicable to the Philippines where the minimum wage has failed to catch up with the ever-rising costs of living. She has great conformation, exceptional movement and is the happiest dog I have ever owned. Her job as a therapy dog for an 83 yr old woman that had is stroke is one she takes very seriously. We continually have Home Health therapists in daily and she greets each of them then quietly goes to her spot to watch everything that goes on. She accompanies me into the chicken coop and is great with the chickens as well as with her cat ( yes her cat that she found in a ditch).
She passed her Herding Instinct testing at 5 months of age and now working on her Canine Good Citizen certification. I have owned and worked with many breeds of dogs and Arya is by far one of the most intelligent, willing and trainable. I would totally recommend PATCHWORK SHEPHERDS and have friends now that have bought puppies from here as well and all of them are as wonderful as Arya.
A He said, "she is really a love," and described her gentleness and cuddling even from the get-go. A She is very playful with her 'brothers' (two older choc labs), but is extremely responsive to me and is my 'watcher.' A No matter where I am, she is A watching over me. A When we settle in the evening to watch a movie, she will quietly peruse the house, coming back to my side after she has checked everything out. A If she could, she would hop up on my lap and sit there, just as she did when she was a fuzz-ball pup! It was serendipity that brought you all the way over the mountains on Monday so we could get her!Also a couple of short videos if you're interested. I was just getting to the serious stage ofshopping for a black coated GSD to raise for my own pet and protection dogwhen my nephew T.J.
BlackJack (Zoey x Drake 2009) is doing fine, being a good boy that loves to be around us (Right now he is under my desk sleeping at my feet). We had many family gattering and other partys and he is always good around people in the house. When my kid gets around to it she will send you pictures, sorry Ia€™m not the computer savvy one. Thank you again for Morgan, she is a gem, here is her 9 week picture (the ear did come down). I think he will excell, and it will be good for the boys to learn how to deal with him (other than play). We purchased Pruett (black collar male from Zoey x Doc August '08 litter) and were so thrilled with him that we had to get another!
A few weeks later we welcomed Daphne (hot pink collar female from Anna x Doc August '08 litter) into our lives. He quickly learns new commands and we are currently practicing, "seek", where we will tell him to "sit and stay" and then we go hide his ball and tell him to "seek" and he finds it. She loves to play in the snow!!She has been doing really well in the house, she is a very quick learner. I know the "puppy stage" lasts for awhile, but if it continues to go as smoothly as it has been going, it will definitely be a breeze.
She loves to play fetch and she is really good at it, which is surprising to me for her age. She is such a sweet puppy, she is always trying to make friends with all the animals she meets, most which unfortunately haven't been too fond of her. Miah is starting to be a little friendly, not much, but like I said, Tymber is a persistant little pup and I believe that eventually they will be pals. We will be taking her on her second fishing trip tomorrow, which is always very exciting for us. She loves playing with any kind of plants and grass- we are hoping she grows out of that stage for our landscape's sake!
Anywho, I just wanted to let you know what a great pup she is and how much Tyler and myself enjoy having her.
He is everythingA I could have ever hoped for in a German Shepherd and I am really happy that I got him. Several people in our training class have commented on his lovely conformation as he trots across the room while playing with the other pups. He's a great dog!A Anyway, hope all is well in your part of the world and that you are enjoying the holiday season. Although I had some concerns on how Gracie would react, from the first walk that we did on the way home from Patchwork, she has been wonderful.
Already they play together, with Gracie laying down so that she is on Argus' level, letting him crawl all over her. He already knows his name, figured out how to negotiate the step up the deck, and how to run from me when he picks up something I don't want him to have. He follows us around from room to room and always sleeps next to us when we are in the room. I do have a crate and have used it but not very much, mostly I just watch him and when I catch that certain look I just take him out and tell him to go potty. When I was in shop he would play under my bench and when he was tired he would sleep under my stool.
He and Gracie had a good time exploring and finding just about every kind of poop there is out there. Everyone that meets her is in awe of not only her beauty and structure, but even more so of her super sweet and willing disposition.A  I cannot say enough about her. She is very gentle, smart, intelligent, super athletic, and just wants to please and love everyone.A  She loves to crawl into our laps and pretend she is a tiny lap dog. A His big brother Jackson and he are the best of buds, they have really bonded into something special! A Also, wea€™d like to thank you for letting us come out and see him when he was a puppy, and for giving us little updates on how he was doing when he was just a lila€™ guy.A  (10lbs when we picked him up to take him home seems little compared to the size he is now!
After working for a vet for more then 10 years my husband had to really talk me into getting a GSD. She has gone though a basic and advanced off leash obediance class and this comming year brings more fun with tracking and agility classes signed up.
We are now thinking of getting her a little brother and look forward to coming out to visit and meet more parents. He is adapting quickly to his new home on Orcas Island, WA A and after 3 days already knows his new name. We have had him for two days now and he has already learned his name, learned how to come when called, walks great on a leash, has learned the command "gentle" for when he takes things with his mouth, is completely potty trained and sleeps all night long in his crate with no problems. We have never seen such a loving, well behaved, intelligent puppy before and we feel so lucky that he is now a part of our family. John and I were so pleased to see the safety measures that you take prior to letting anyone be near or handle any of the puppies. Because of your loving care for your dogs we now have two of the greatest puppies that anyone could ever ask for in life! I am grateful for the time that we were able to spend with the puppies getting to know each and every one of them. You are wonderful about keeping everyone informed through your website just as you did while we were waiting to be able to take the Sebastian and Kasia home. We were also very impressed that you were so willing to let us come visit and you even encouraged us to do so. We thoroughly appreciate that you allowed us to be a part of the puppies lives even before they were in their new home. Through your attentive behavior to each and every one of your puppies we new the silly things they did, what they liked to play with all the way down to their little itchy spot that they liked to have scratched. Because of all your love and attention we have two beautiful, healthy puppies that we will get to love for years to come.A A Thank you so much for our beautiful puppies! A  I got hopeful when I found your pages, with your dog Penny, who reminded me so much of our Isis, who was a beautiful, athletic,and loving black and red blanket pattern longcoat. You DID say on your page that your goal was to find the right dog for people, right down to the color.
The way you described the parents of different litters, and later the pups themselves, was exactly right.A  Patiently, you discussed all the little characteristics of each pup in a way that just about made up for our never being able to actually see the pups in person or hold them in our arms.
Pashi learned every trick all of my other dogs know in one 10 minute session at age 11 weeks, and never forgot them.A  She and Itta (9 weeks) both sit at the door automatically now, better than any of our other dogs who have been working on it for ages.
