Classes start, pupils make


do with roofless classrooms

The EV Mail Staff


ORMOC CITY- School started on Monday, June 2, but
despite government pronouncements that classrooms
were already okay in Yolanda-hit areas, the contrary is
true.
At Brgy. Alta Vista
Elementary School here,
around 70 students, or a
fourth of its entire population attend classes in roofless classrooms.
Its very disappointing, Rebecca Digor, principal of the elementary school
told media, as she looked at
their pupils trying to learn
under miserable conditions.
As of June 5, 2014, Alta
Vista elementary school had
an enrolment of 257 pupils
from kinder to grades 1 to
6. Digor said enrolment
slightly decreased from the
previous school year with
280 enrolled.
Each grade level has
only one section. The most
affected classes are Grades 4
and 5 which are occupying
two roofless classrooms at
the second floor of a schoolbuilding constructed from
Ormoc City government
funds.

On sunny conditions,
she said, the pupils learned
their lessons under an umbrella to fend off the oppressive heat. The plastic
canvass roofing donated
by the barangay is now in
tatters.
That day too, Mrs.
Digor had to dismiss the
Grades 4 and 5 classes at
2:30 in the afternoon because of impending rain.
She noted the roofless condition of the classrooms is
not only endangering the
health of the children but
also their academic learning. Nag-taligsik naman gud.
Walay atop, mao to nga ako
nalang gipa dismiss og sayo
ang klase kay maluoy intawon
ko mag tan-aw sa mga bata

She added that personnel from the Ormoc City

Johnsons Baby playground excites Sagkahan pupils


By Lalaine M. Jimenea
TACLOBAN CITY Contrary to previous years,
the Sagkahan Elementary
School in this city posted
a 100 percent attendance
on June 2, the first day of
school, said Mrs. Nice Galura, school principal.
She said this was because the children were
excited to use the Johnsons
Baby playground in their
school, the first playground
donated to a DepEd school
in Yolanda-devastated
Leyte, which was formally
turned over in a simple ceremony on Friday morning,

June 6.
Galura said traditionally, only about 80 percent of the students would
turn up for the first day of
school. The principal said
it was touching to see the
children eager to use the
playground, lining up for
their turn patiently for a
piece of the action.
Sagkahan Elementary
School is around 200 meters
away from the Tacloban
coastline. It was among the
citys evacuation area. It has

ASEM draws up Tacloban Declaration, lauds Aquino


govt for transparency in use of humanitarian aid
By Vicky C. Arnaiz
& Perla Lena (PNA)
THE ASIA-EUROPE
Meeting (ASEM), an informal cooperation between 49
nations in Europe and Asia
has come up with the Tacloban Declaration after concluding a 3-day conference
on Disaster Risk Reduction
and Management (DRRM).
The four-page declaration
conveys the message that everyone has a stake in building
more resilient communities,
and the world must act now
so that lives would be spared
from the new normal of
mega-disasters. The ASEM
reached this conclusion after
a visit to Tacloban City and
Yolanda-devastated towns on
June 4, Wednesday.
The countrys experience
with Supertyphoon Yolanda
and the global humanitarian
response was the centerpiece
of deliberations during the
conference which closed on
Friday, June 6.
The Tacloban Declaration is in memory of the more
than 6,000 people who died,
and more than a thousand more
still missing, after Yolanda
made landfall, which is said
to be the strongest storm in
recorded history.
In a statement to media,
Department of Foreign Affairs
Secretary Alberto Romulo
added that the Tacloban Declaration recognizes the central
role of national governments in
DRRM, particularly in mega-

disasters.
It also affirms the important role of the local government as first responders and
builders of local resilience,
and recognizes the need for
DRRM principles to be translated into practical measures
that could be implemented on
the ground.
It also seeks to put in place
positive measures that the
government implemented in
the wake of the typhoon and
support the
build back
better principle. More
importantly,
it seeks to increase transparency of
international aid through the
Foreign Aid Transparency
Hub (FAiTH), a website that
the Aquino government established to track relief aid and its
disbursements.
ASEM also lauded FAiTH,
saying it was an important
move to to incorporate enhanced financial tracking
mechanisms and promote
trust and confidence of the
donor community and the
beneficiary community.
Site visit
The horror of Yolanda
apparently moved ASEM participants to come up with the
Tacloban declaration. More
than 75 delegates were in Tacloban and Yolanda-affected
towns on Wednesday to see
for themselves the devastation
wrought by the worlds stron-

gest typhoon on the lives and


properties of people.
During the visit, European Commissioner for International Cooperation, Humanitarian Aid and Crisis
Response Kristalina Georgieva
announced that the European
Union to the Philippines was
giving an additional 30
million (P 1.8-billion) for the
rebuilding of vital infrastructures for the health sector and
education, as well as revitalizing businesses
to be able to
provide real
jobs to those
displaced
by typhoon
Yolanda.
Georgieva
made the announcement during a luncheon meeting between the delegates and local
chief executives (LCEs) of local government units that were
badly devastated by Yolanda.
Georgieva was among the
first set of dignitaries to visit
Tacloban City after Yolanda,
and recalled during the luncheon of the sight of cadavers
lining up the streets. She was
here on November 16 and
described the sight as tragic.
She shared that Europeans,
upon seeing the pictures of
what happened, felt that they
were also Filipinos and that
there was an enormous outburst of solidarity.

Tacloban City shared with the
ASEM delegates the lessons
they learned after suffering
from Yolanda.
Tanauan Mayor Pelagio
Tecson was blunt about taking responsibility, saying that
personal leadership was most
important in responding to any
crisis situation. At the end of
the day, it all boils down to
you and to me. We should stop
blaming somebody else. We
have to take control and think
and find ways, he said.
Leyte Governor Leopoldo
Dominic Petilla, on the other
hand, cited resiliency and faith
as lessons that he learned from
Yolanda. The province of
Leyte will embark in an ambitious plan to improve further
the resiliency, for the people of
Leyte to further prepare them
to face greater challenge when
it comes to disaster, he told
the delegates.
Palo Mayor Remedios
Petilla said that foremost
among the lessons she learned
was that there is no substitute to preparedness. As she
enumerated various efforts her
local government unit did, she
said that, by all accounts, we
were prepared and we have
done our best. But we were not
prepared for that type of mega
typhoon, she said.
Nonetheless, she said Palo

Rep. Lucy Torres-Gomez, 4th District of Ormoc, offers words of inspiration to certified carpenters
from Ormoc.

3,218 houses built, 620


carpenters trained by LDS
THREE MONTHS after
Yolanda struck Tacloban,
Ormoc and other parts of
Leyte, The Church of Jesus
Christ of Latter-day Saints
focused on providing shelters
to families after doing emergency response.
The Shelter and Carpentry
Graduation Exercises held
May 28 in Ormoc and 29 in
Tacloban brought together
the families of carpenters and
Church leaders who were
closely assisting and ministering to their shelter needs. Family members happily cheered
loved ones as they received
their certification.
The LDS is one of Rep.
Lucy Torres-Gomezs partners
in her Rebuild Ormoc and the
4th District of Leyte.
A total of 3,218 homes have
been built with 620 carpenters
certified in carpentry and basic
construction work under the
tutelage of master carpenters.
The Church provided construction materials and tools
while labor was provided by
the recipient. The principle of
self-reliance came into play
as recipients were required to
build their home as well as 4
other shelters. Not only did
they gain a home- they learned
a skill which could provide
them livelihood since the need
for carpenters is immense in

Yolanda-stricken areas.
What we have happening
here is both the principle of
welfare which is caring for the
poor and needy, partnered with
the principle of self-reliance,
said Benson Misalucha, Area
Welfare Manager. One who
is receiving a shelter is also
working to build that shelter
themselves, he added.
Master carpenters were
brought in to assist with training through the Churchs Perpetual Education Fund (PEF).
Local trainees learned the trade
and demonstrated their ability
by building 4 other shelters to
receive government certification and a toolbox from the
Church, enabling them to seek
gainful employment.
Jennalyn Barantes, a widow whose house was destroyed
when coconuts fell on it, did
not have the means to fix it.
Volunteers helped her build a
new house and in return she
helped another family construct a home. I learned to
work together with those who
were also in need because it
was best that we recover from
the typhoon together, said
Barantes. She moved into her
new house with her mother and
daughter last February.
Ricky Gonzalez and his
family took shelter in a chapel
when the typhoon struck. As a

master carpenter tasked to help


others learn the skill, he said,
We knew we needed to help
one another so that the building
of shelters can be completed
quicker.
Ricardo Aban, Tacloban
Stake (diocese) president,
was with his flock during the
typhoon seeking shelter in San
Juanico Chapel together with
his family. After the typhoon,
he had more work to do assessing the needs of his members
and responding to their needs.
He recalled, I had a responsibility to a larger family aside
from my own. With my familys support, I managed to
address the many challenges
of the different families in the
Stake. Today is a celebration
of happiness and a brighter
future ahead.
Elder Brent H. Nielson,
area president of the Church
in the Philippines said, The
Shelter and Carpentry Graduation is a celebration of Filipino
resiliency. The typhoon may
have damaged many things
but never the Filipino resolve
to rise above the challenges
around him. Many things
have been accomplished after
Yolanda. We will continue to
serve our brothers and sisters
as we follow the teaching of
our Savior, Jesus Christ, to
help others. PR

Touched by a
miracle
THIS WEEK was like Christmas. Everywhere I went, it was mostly to cover a turnover of this and that, all aimed at helping
Yolanda victims. One invitation that I did
not regret accepting, even if on a very late
notice, was the turnover of a playground by
Johnson & Johnson to a school in Tacloban.
The turnover was done by 11:00 AM and I
could have returned to Ormoc asap but something just pulled me to the group and urged me
to stay with them for lunch. We had lunch at
the Leyte Park Hotel and initially, it was agreed
that we occupied separate tables. Some people,
however, did not like it and insisted that the
tables were arranged next to each other.
I was able to sit beside Sigrid Perez, the
playground designer and a mother of eight. Together with the others, we covered a wide range
of topics until we touched on Pope Francis and
our desire to see him in person. He is coming
to the Philippines on January.
Last year, failing to see the Pope in person
when we visited Vatican in Rome, we learned
that he was scheduled to come to the country
to visit the grave of Msgr. Camomot in Cebu
who could become the third Filipino saint in the
future. This week, the Tacloban City council
passed a resolution inviting the Pope to visit
the Yolanda ravaged areas. Maybe, we said, we
could get to see our idol saint.
The conversation just fell naturally into how
we cope with problems. And I was quite touched
to learn that Sigrid was an Ondoy survivor. In
the deep of the night, with waters as high as two
storey houses flooding their neighborhood, she
hopped from one roof to another with her kids
to save themselves. They survived.
But this was not the only problem her family
has had to face. I also learned that her boy is a
cancer survivor. What is more amazing is that it
is one of the cases that was investigated by the
Vatican in the cause of beatifying Msgr. Alvaro
del Portillo, an Opus Dei bishop.
Sigrid said they were Opus Dei members.
Contrary to how shady the group was portrayed
in Dan Browns Da Vinci Code, she said the
Opus Dei was a Catholic group of priests and
laypeople who believe that whoever we are,
whatever we are or do, we should dedicate to
the glory of God.
Anyway, the story of her boys surviving
leukemia was interesting. I will try to relate it
as close to how she related it.
Her boy suffered leukemia. It had come to a
point that it was already touch and go. The boy
had slipped into a coma and they were prepped
by the doctors on what could happen anytime,
any day. They were asked if they would want
him resuscitated in case he slipped away and
told they had to prepare for the inevitable.
Sigrid said it was news that broke her heart
and the only thing she can do was pray. In a
moment of divine intervention, she remember
Msgr. Alvero del Portillo and promised that if
her son survived, she would live the rest of her
life spreading the word of his goodness.
Six days later, her son wakes up from his
first-ever peaceful sleep, a sleep which they
thought he would never wake up from anymore.
Her husband, on the night before, had already
whispered in their sons ear to go with Jesus

Pentecost today

Evening brackets
THE AFTERNOON knows what the morning never suspected. Robert Frosts line
sums up what the Philippine and Global
Perspectives on Aging forum addresses. At
University of San Carlos in Cebu, the Office
of Population Studies will bring together
scholars on aging on Wednesday.
A 2010 survey estimated 6.8 percent of Filipinos are over age 60. Thats a sliver below
the UNs 7 percent cut-off point, notes OPS
Judith Borja.
Given health and social programs gains,
more Filipino cluster in what President Bill
Clinton dubbed as the almost-old brackets.
Filipino elderly constitute the fastest growing
population sector. Fertility decline here lags
behind next-door countries.
This steep aging trajectory contrasts with
gradual aging experience in industrialized nations. It gives less time and resources to cope
with crammed old folk homes.
Ongoing nutrition and epidemiologic transitions compound the problem. Many shift to
diets, heavy on fat, as fast food outlets offer.
People ride short distances and few exercise.
These jack up obesity and cardio-metabolic
diseases.
No one can avoid aging, publisher
Katherine Graham wrote. But aging productively is something else. Are todays elderly
programmed for increased cardio-metabolic
disease risk at younger ages? This ushers an
unhealthy entry into old age.
Many of the elderly are economically insecure. Some work even when aging muscles
scream stop. You grow old when you stop to
laugh, George Bernard Shaw wrote. There is
a narrow window to address structural and
policy changes to meet needs of the wheelchair
brigade.
The conference will pinpoint new research
areas, as seen in the context of findings in other
countries. These could underpin tomorrows
aging policy. Keep your fingers crossed. Scientists from universities in the North Carolina,
Maryland, Minnesota California are resource
speakers.
OPS will present a longitudinal analysis
of elderly, based on 3080 mothers and their
children from 243 Cebu barangays tracked
since 1983. Yesterdays Cebu infants are todays grandparents. Some still hold down jobs.
Thereve been school dropouts. A number have

died and 136 moved out. At last follow-up, one


was an OFW worker in Iceland.
Sustained studies like Cebus Longitudinal
Health and Nutrition Survey (CLHNS) are rare.
Only Brazil, India, South Africa and Guatemala
had similar ongoing birth cohort studies that
cover close to 11,000 individuals. All had at
least 15 years or more of follow-up.
Over the last 31 years, OPS data anchored
125 international and national research projects.
They range from pre-birth malnutritions effect
on blood pressure and early onset of menstruation to parental and peer pressure on young
adult sexual behavior. San Carlos completed
its examination of new pregnancies and birth
outcomes among those who were once 1983
infants. This makes CLHNS a three-generation
study.
Cebu findings shaped the first World Bank
health financing strategy, University of North
Carolinas Barry Popkin wrote. Cebu research
was instrumental in Unicef and Asian Development Banks programs on early child
development. A Harvard University team used
the CLHNS for analysis of two long-term vaccination programs.
The Regional Central American Institute
matched Cebu data with those of villages in
Guatemala and Uruguay. World Bank used it
for analysis of long-term consequences of childhood malnutrition in Zimbabwe and Tanzania.
Egypt applied Cebu methodology to gauge
effects of water and sanitation on children.
Russian demographers used data to assess
household expenditures and married womens
resource position.
Fr. Wilhelm Flieger, SVD, who organized
OPS at University of San Carlos and the Nutrition Centers Florentino Solon crafted, then
launched, the Cebu longitudinal survey in 1983.
Aside from this work, Fr. Flieger pioneered
studies on population movements in Philippine
uplands, mortality research, systems for modular questionnaires. And he helped train many of
todays Filipino demographers.
A massive stroke cut down Father Flieger
in 1999. Cebus elite didnt notice his passing. In contrast, Harvard Universitys professor

TO be sure, Pentecost which celebrates the


coming of the Holy Spirit is not an event in
the past that at best is merely to be remembered if we care. It continues to take place
up to now.
In the first place, every liturgical celebration
is not just a commemoration of something that
happened in the past. It is the making present of
what took place in the past, since the subject of
the celebration is Jesus Christ who is God and
man. As God he is eternal. Nothing in him or in
his action is simply swallowed in the
past.
And thats also because, to put it bluntly, the
Holy Spirit is the very life of the whole world,
the whole creation. He can never withdraw from
the universe no matter how much we ignore
him, or worse, deny his presence and ever abiding action on all of us.
Nothing exists, nothing can be real and true
if the Holy Spirit is not first of all in the very
core of its being. No one can do good, no one
can believe in God if he is not animated in some
way by the Holy Spirit.
What we should rather do is to sharpen our
sensitivity to the indispensable role of the Holy
Spirit in our lives and in the world. Even more,
we, as Gods image and likeness and adopted
children of his through his grace, should in fact
try our best to cooperate with him.
Among all Gods creatures, we are the ones
expected to cooperate with the Holy Spirit as
closely as possible. Thats due to our spiritual
nature which, through our intelligence and will,
enables us to enter into intimate communion
with him.
We are meant to share our life with the Holy
Spirit. We need to hammer this truth of our faith
more insistently these days, since the ignorance
and indifference to the Holy Spirit is widespread
and prevalent.
Theres, first of all, some awkwardness
with the idea of living with the Holy Spirit, for
the obvious reason that we are dealing with a
supernatural reality that requires more than just
our natural powers.
But if we really come down to it, theres
actually no problem with dealing with supernatural realities, since God in the Holy Spirit
always adapts himself to our conditions and
circumstances.
This truth is best illustrated with the mystery
of the Incarnation, that is, God becomes man, or
better said, God assumes human nature without
leaving or diluting his divine nature.
The supernatural life of God with which we
are meant to share does not suppress our nature.
Rather the supernatural purifies and strengthens
our nature that has been dirtied and weakened
by sin, then elevates it.
For his part, God gives us in abundance
everything that we need to live the supernatural
life with him. He gives us first of all faith, hope
and charity. They are called theological virtues,
since they have God as source and end. They
are not man-made virtues.
Then the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit are
poured on uswisdom, understanding, counsel,
fortitude, knowledge, piety and fear of the Lord.
These further refine and facilitate the workings
of the theological virtues.

The PDAF scam


secret finally
uncovered

Lower than normal

WE ALL know the justification behind the


so-called pork barrel fund which was
named the Priority Development Assistance
Fund (PDAF) by the impeached President
Erap.
It started with a patriotic idea of developing
the country nationwide; after all, the Congressmen will concentrate on their individual districts
and the Senators all over the land because they
are elected at large. No doubt it was a beautiful scheme; the only trouble is because of our
penchant to go around the intent in order to
discover loose ends. This is where the scam
was born that led to the giving of incentives to
the lawmakers on the side. It must have been a
genius of a person to be able to develop such a
scheme to make the various lawmakers happy
while at the same time develop the country-side.
According to the center of the scam in the
person of Ms Janet Lim Napoles, it was then
Congressman and now Budget Secretary Butch
Abad who gave her the idea of having an NGO
(Non-Government Organization) to be used as
the receiver of the fund. The idea of giving out
commissions must have been an afterthought.
Brilliant!
If this was a chess move, it would been given
two exclamation marks. Presto! The lawmaker
can rest in the thought that he did not steal from
the coffers of the state. We also know that this
is SOP (stan-dard operating procedure) in any
trade practice. You buy a car and the salesman
receives a commission for it. You sell a lot in
a subdi-vision and you get 5% commission if
you are a licensed broker or 3% if not.
With the PDAF that involves millions, Ms
Napoles must have been so generous to give
bigger commissions that the other lawmakers
also joined the fray and used her as their source
conduit. According to the Manila dailies, the
amount involved in this scam is P10 billion. A
billion -- for the readers who do not know its
extent -- has nine zeroes. If a million worth of
P1 coins will take a year to count, a billion will
be very much longer. Perhaps, spending it will
take you a lifetime.
Based on the issue of Philstar dated 27th
May 2014, there are 18 Senators (including past
Senators). They are as folliows:
01) Barbers, Robert;
02) Biazon, Rodolfo;
03) Enrile, Juan Ponce;

04) Estrada, Jinggoy;


05) Estrada, Loi
06) Honasan, Gregorio;
07) Jaworski, Robert;
08) Lapid, Lito;
09) Legarda, Loren;
10) Magsaysay, Ramon, Jr.;
11) Marcos, Ferdinand, Jr.;
12) Oreta, Tessie Aquino;
13) Pimental, Aquilino, Jr.;
14) Pimentel, Aquilino, III;
15) Revilla, Ramon, Jr.;
16) Sotto, Vicente, III;
17) Villar, Cynthia;
18) Villar, Manuel
Going over the above listing, this corner
cannot believe how wide is the tentacle of the
octopus that comprise the scam. The rich Villar
couple of the Camella Homes? The Pimentels
-- the elder was a Dean of Law and the son is
a bar topnotcher? The Estradas? The military
people in Biazon and Honasan? The Cebuano
in Sotto? The only son of The Guy Magsaysay?
The Auntie of Pres. P-Noy, Tessie Oreta? The
PBA basketballer in Jaworski?
Some of them this corner cannot believe.
Ms Loren Legarda? How about the 138 Congressmen not in the above list? How about the
three Cabinet men in Alcala of Agriculture,
Villanueva of TESDA and Abad of Budget?
How about the other lesser Cabinet members?
It looks like there is a need for a complete revamp -- from top to bottom. It is not fair to stop
altogether this particular funding but we need to
refocus the practice. There is a very important
need to make the releases fool-proof. The job
of the Budget Secretary must be looked over
and amended with a fine tooth comb. Napoles
insisted that she has the evidence. Abad insists
he is innocent. It remains to be seen.
Too bad that our politicians have no sense of
patriotism anymore. They do not have the sense
of handling rightly the money of the people.
How come that the government in the early
part of our history were so immaculately clean?
How many times have we reviewed our values,
how many seminsrs on values were conducted,
how often do we have to give refreshers? Do
we no longer have a redeeming value? Are we
all doomed to go to Hades?

Being filled with the Holy Spirit produces


twelve fruits that precisely indicate the Holy
Spirit is in us. These are charity, joy, peace,
patience, benignity, goodness, long-suffering,
mildness, faith, modesty, continence and
chastity.
On our part, we should predispose ourselves
to receive all these by being docile always to the
working of the Holy Spirit. This would include
having recourse to the sacraments, developing
a life of prayer and continuing formation, and
loving the cross, since following Christ involves
the cross always as he himself told us clearly.
We should not be afraid to go through this
formula. And a beautiful and useful prayer can
be the one composed by St. Josemaria Escriva.
It says:
Come, O holy Spirit! / Enlighten my mind
to know your commands; / strengthen my heart
against the snares of the enemy; / inflame my
will... / I have heard your voice, / and I dont
want to harden myself and resist, / saying,
Later..., tomorrow.
Nunc coepi! Now I begin! / In case there
is no tomorrow for me. /
O Spirit of truth and wisdom / Spirit of
understanding and counsel, /
Spirit of joy and peace! / I want whatever
you want, I want because you want, I want
however you want, I want whenever you want.
/Amen.
Then be amazed at how the Holy Spirit
works in our life! Email: roycimagala@gmail.

proudest Of all my students, he went far

Despite his workload, this priest found a
parish that lacked a pastor. Twice a week, he
got into his little Volkswagen and drove to a
village near Chicagos OHare Airport where
he ministered to a congregation that saw (the)
purposefulness of his work.
Cebu officials never grasped the significance or value of CLHNS, we wrote then.
They instead fiddled with vigilante-style summary executions, buying handguns for barangay
chieftains, fudging yen loans, etc. Then Mayor
Tomas Osmea saw to it his bodyguard, garlanded by three murder charges, was honored
with a Cebu City Charter Day award. Today,
they still dabble in such trash.

WHEN WE, MEN, ARE young, testosterone is often blamed for our aggressive and
overly competitive behavior. But as men get
older, its low testosterone that has captured
attention.
Testosterone, the male hormone, plays an
important role in many body functions. As we
age the body produces less and less of this key
hormone. Natural production of testosterone
peaks in a mans late 20s, and the later years
can leave men tired, with lowered sex-drive,
infertile, and with thinning bones.
Symptoms of low testosterone also include
increased incidence of heart disease, diabetes,
and other age-related illness that happen as
testosterone levels slowly decline with age.
But there are also less specific symptoms.
Men with low testosterone might also notice a
decrease in self-confidence, feeling sad or depressed, problems with sleeping and memory,
reduction in body mass, and a decrease in work
performance.
All it takes to tell if a mans testosterone
level is low is a simple blood test. As many
as four in 10 men older than 45 have lower
than normal levels of testosterone, according
to experts.
Although low testosterone is common in
older men, its not necessarily a normal part of
aging. Other conditions that are common with
aging, such as obesity or depression, can cause
lower levels of testosterone, based on research.
Testosterone levels can drop if testicular
tissue is lost, which can happen with age. And
prior testicular trauma, undescended testicles
and radiation treatment to the testicles also can
cause lower testosterone levels. Testosterone
levels can also drop because of some drugs
such as narcotics.
Several options exist for treating low testosterone. Testosterone replacement therapy is one
possible way of solving the problem.
But replacing lost testosterone isnt a cureall. For example, many men hope that testosterone therapy will help treat erectile dysfunction.
Although testosterone is a treatment for low
libido and taking replacement testosterone may
increase a mans sex drive, its not a direct treatment for erectile dysfunction.

Testosterone replacement also isnt an option for men who want to preserve their fertility.
Thats because when a man takes testosterone
therapy, the testosterone receptors in the body
tell the brain that theres enough testosterone,
and, in turn, the brain signals the testes to stop
producing sperm.
And there are risks involved in testosterone
therapy. They include an increase in the size of
the prostate, water retention, worsening sleep
apnea, a lower sperm count and an increase in
the platelet count, which could increase the risk
for blood clots, according to research.
But the most important thing men need to
know is that testosterone therapy or a testosterone booster isnt a substitute for taking care of
overall health. Many men who are obese, with
poor diet and no exercise, blame low testosterone. While testosterone may play a role in their
overall health, it needs to be viewed in context
with these other factors.

The Gospel on Sunday


JUNE 15, 2014
The Solemnity of the
Holy Trinity
John 3: 16 - 18
For God so loved the world that he gave
his only Son, that whoever believes in him
should not perish but have eternal life.
For God sent the Son into the world,
not to condemn the world, but that the world
might be saved through him.
He who believes in him is not condemned; he who does not believe is
condemned already, because he has not
believed in the name of the only Son of God.

Dengue
WITH THE coming of the rainy months,
dengue cases are expected to rise.
Dengue fever is caused by the Dengue
virus. It has 4 strains (1-4). It is transmitted
through the mosquito which serves as the
vector called Aedes aegypti. This mosquito
usually bites during the day. A person can be
infected by the Dengue virus more than once;
since there are 4 strains.
The second infection is usually severe
than the first which could lead to bleeding
episodes (dengue hemorrhagic fever). Dengue
fever can also be seen in Africa, Central and
South America and Southeast Asia. Dengue
fever occurs through out the country all year
round.
However, in rainy months, cases increase
due to an increase in the vector (mosquito)
population as its breeding grounds multiply
during the rainy months. Adult mosquito can
lay eggs in places with stagnant water - the
used tires placed on rooftops, those empty
bottles which were discarded, and clogged
gutters - which eventually catch rain water;
even flower vases and jars with water left
unchanged could harbor mosquito eggs which
would eventually hatch into adults.
The signs of Dengue fever usually manifest after 2-7 days of incubation or after being
bitten. Symptoms include fever, headache,

generalized body weakness and back pain.


Macular rashes can appear over the body starting from the abdomen spreading to the arms,
legs and face. Bleeding may occur which may
involve the gums and nose. When these happen, one should be brought for consultation
and laboratory tests. Complete blood count
may reveal low platelet count which can further worsen the bleeding. Dengue fever can
be medically managed by hydration, while
transfusion of blood products is done in cases
of anemia or low platelet count. At present,
there is no vaccine for Dengue prevention.
To prevent the spread of the virus, vector control is an important step to lessen the
incidence of Dengue. The DOH has promoted
the 4 oclock habit wherein a group of local
volunteers in each zone / barangay will stop
everything they do and start looking for breeding grounds of mosquitos - properly disposing
empty bottles, making holes on tires placed
on roof tops and regular cleaning of clogged
gutters.
As Health Secretary Dr. Enrique Ona has
said: Dengue needs urgent action and we
need it now. In the absence of the usual cures
and vaccines, we have to rely on the basics
of early prevention and community action.

BUTNGA FALLS
... from P. 12
To reach the falls from
Ormoc, he said, one could
take their car to Villaba town
or ride a van (P 90.00) or
a bus bound for Palompon.
Just asked to be dropped
where Brgy. Abijao is. From
there, a short habal-habal
ride (P 20.00 per person)
would bring the tourist to
Sitio Butnga.
Upon reaching Sitio Butnga, one could ask directions
and a 20 to 30 minute walk
should bring the tourist to
the first waterfall called Busay Uno. Jimmy says there
is no need for tourist guides
and the locals are friendly.
They could even offer to
come with you for the fun
and pride of it.
Busay Uno, he said, is
a perfect spot for picnicking, swimming and diving.
Lush vegetation of wild
Badak plants abound, its
fruits which are edible, even
if filled with seeds. He said
Badak tastes like guava
and perfectly safe to eat.
However, Busay Unos deep
pools, Jimmy said, is half
filled with fallen logs from
Yolanda. Still, it is an adventure to be there.
Upstream is Busay Dos,
Jimmy says, and Busay Tres
is just a few meters above
Busay Dos. It is the highest waterfalls of the three.
Busay Uno drops about 20
feet, Busay Dos around 28
feet while Busay Tres drops
from an elevation of about
30-35 feet.
Youll need to climb the
walls beside Busay Dos to
reach Busay Tres, Jimmy
said.
Jimmy Elordes pride of
place is very evident that
we know he wouldnt mind
giving you a few more tips
on how to get to his beloved
waterfalls. Contact him at
0912-539-0180.
He added that this would
be the best time to go to the
falls because it has started
raining. To experience Busay
Tress full grandeur, it is best
to visit the place the day
after a rain.
Thank you, Jimmy, for
sharing Villabas well-kept
secret from us. Lalaine

When their son woke up,
the first words he told them
was Dad, I saw Jesus in a
dream and he told me to go
home and play with my sister.
After that, Sigrid said, her
sons constant fever did not
recur anymore and three hours
later, they were out of the ICU.
More than five years have
passed, she said, and the leukemia just disappeared. In
fulfillment of her promise,
Sigrid said she wrote the Vatican about the miracle and
representatives came to see
and interview her.
Sigrid was blessed to experience a big miracle in their
lives. However, I also believe
that everyday, miracles happen
in our own lives.
It was a beautiful day. It

50 families get transitional shelters at Brgy. Donghol


ORMOC CITY 50 families will
soon live in 50 transitional shelters at Brgy. Donghol, this city,
thank to Barebones and Goal
Zero, two American companies
that supply outdoor tents and
equipment.
The owners of the two companies, including partners, were
in the city June 5 (Thursday) to
help beneficiaries assemble the
transitional shelters. The beneficiaries are residents of the village
who were not able to rebuild their
homes, despite some getting shelter kits donated by other agencies.
They are relocated to a onehectare area apportioned by the
Iaki A. Larrazabal family for the
recipients, who are mostly workers of their farm.
During its launch on Thursday, Barebones president John
Workman and Goal Zero president Sam Gonzales, the IAL family, TIFIE (Teaching Individuals
and Families Independent Thru
Enterprise) which is an American
NGO, and the recipients worked
hand in hand to assemble the
shelters.
Iigo Larrazabal, a scion of
the IAL family, said that the transitional shelters are actually tents
that could be transformed over
time to become traditional houses
when the recipients can afford to
improve on it already. The tents
are fire proof and guaranteed to
withstand all weather conditions
for many years.
In normal times, these transitional shelters are called
glamps or glamorous camps.
They are not inexpensive. In the
US, one unit costs US $2,000.00 or
around P 80,000.00 each.
John Workman of Barebones
said the glamps were named
transitional shelters under the
post-Yolanda setting because it
is intended to help the recipients transition from the tents to
a more permanent house. Over
time, he said, the recipients can
replace portions of the tents with

more permanent materials like GI
sheets as roofing and plywood for
the walls. It has strong aluminum
frames which, if reinforced with
wood braces, can withstand the
heavy GI sheets.
In fact, Larrazabal added,
of the 50 units, five were just
frames. These are demo units
for other dwellers to copy how
they can make a permanent house

from the tents. A retired employee


is one of the recipients who opted
to use GI sheets for his roof already. He would soon be using the
plywood as its walls, a donation
that he got from the Rotary Club
of Ormoc Bay.
Larrazabal said that the discarded tents, in time, would be
relinquished to them for safekeeping so that it could be re-used

LAKE DANAO ... from P. 2


Other substantial matters discussed during the meeting was
the proposed Lake Danao Natural Park Act of 2014.
Meanwhile, the fiesta executive committee headed by the
Mayors brother Edwin Codilla, has started meeting with various sectors to map out the activities that would lend festivity to
Ormoc despite being ravaged by Yolanda.
In a meeting with the transportation and communications
group this week, the mayors brother said that this years fiesta
will not have the annual Bb. Ormoc pageant, which he said was
expensive and not in keeping with the hard times. Bakikaw
man gud hunahunaon nga magluwas tag Binibining Ormoc nga
mogasto tag dako, unya adunay uban natong mga igsuon nga
wala pa man gani makapaatup sa ilang mga balay, Codilla said.
Instead, he said, there will be a fashion show on June 24.
Noted designer Leo Almodal was coming to Ormoc for the
fashion show, and this will be open to the public.
On June 28, there will be the Abun-dance, a street dance
which depicts Abunda or bounty.
Chosen as chairman of the Transcom sector was Bernard
Samson, manager of Lite Shipping. The Transcom Night will
be on June 19 and includes companies like media outlets, shipping and transport companies, PLDT, Globe, Smart and other
agencies related to transportation and communication. By Jhay
Gaspar and Paul Libres

SCHOOL ... from P. 1


engineering office had also
inspected the classrooms after the typhoon and promised to have it repaired
as soon as possible. They
were promised it should
be repaired by summer
because the classrooms
were constructed less than
a year yet. Niingon man
to nga ayuhon, probably
by summer kay wa pa man
daw ni one year gikan sa
pagtukod, Digor said.
To her dismay, the classrooms were left unrepaired
until now, and doubling
their misery are the rains.
To her added dismay,
she was told by the Ormoc
DepEd Division that the
school was not covered by
the national governments
classroom repair program
as it was city-funded.
On the other hand,
Division Superintendent
Mariza Magan, in an interview, said even if they
would want to repair the
damaged classrooms, they
are still waiting for the P
90-million plus funding
from the DepEd central office for classroom repairs in
the city.
She also said that 50%
of the classrooms in the
citys 97 public schools were
still using tarpaulin or plastic canvass as temporary
roofs, aside from temporary
learning centers donated by
various NGOs.
The dire situation is
also true in high schools.
At the New Ormoc City
National High School
(NOCNHS), the citys biggest high school, seven sections are holding classes at
the lobbies of buildings or

under trees.
Imelda Amodia,
NOCNHS principal, said
the school has 117 sections,
seven of which do not have
classrooms. Because some
classrooms were rendered
roofless, they are also holding classes in five makeshift
classrooms or temporary
learning centers donated
by the United National
Children Emergency Fund
(UNICEF).
There is also an 8-classroom school-building donated by the ABS-CBN
Foundation, but construction is not yet finished.
As of June 2, they had
an enrolment of 4,416 students but she is expecting
the number to increase in
the days to come. Last year,
she said, they had 5,201
enrollees and she expects
that there would be more
this year as some students
in private schools have
transferred to the public
high school.
Meanwhile, it was
learned that the Ormoc City
Central School, the citys
biggest elementary school,
posted an enrollment of
2,277 already.
The Special Education Center (SPED) has
541 enrollees. They also
have a problem of the lack
of classrooms, said Mrs.
Henrietta Managbanag,
principal, because the SPED
school-building that was
constructed by the city was
badly damaged by Yolanda.
They were holding classes
in vacant areas, including
inside the school clinic.

jobs. Maybe in Cebu, Manila or abroad, she added.
Lucky
Claire is lucky because she is one of last graduates of the regular short
course on Tourism that
KEITech offers. KEITech
is also just finishing their
courses on Construction
and Metals & Engineering
which would end by July.
The course offerings would
be suspended this year until
2016.
Instead of their regular
courses, KEITech will be
offering Carpentry, Plumbing and Electrical courses
crammed into a 3-month
curriculum as conceptualized by TESDA. This is to
meet the demand for skilled
workforce to rebuild Leyte
and Yolanda-affected areas.
P re s e n t t o w i t n e s s
their graduation was Paul
Aquino, KEITech Foundation chairman. Aquino was
formerly the president and
CEO of the Energy Development Corporation and
was the one who conceptualized KEITech as one
of EDCs corporate social
responsibility programs.
A l s o p re s e n t w e re
Mayor Elmer Codilla and
Vice Mayor Macario Lumangtad Jr. of Kananga,
TESDA regional director
Cleta M. Omega and ARD
Roy Buenafe.
What is KEITech?
Together with the LGU
of Kananga, the institution was established four
years ago to provide poor
but deserving high school
graduates tech-voc courses
that would equip them to

The graduates in a wacky pose with their mentors led by Dr. Emil Saceda, MD.
carve a better future.
All graduates of KEITech are scholars. They come
from this town, the City of
Ormoc where some steam
wells of the EDC are also
located, and other areas
in the country where EDC
operates.
Once accepted, they
live in the school dormitory,
with full board and lodging.
To train them well, they are
only allowed to go home
during weekends.
KEITech teaches more
than vocational courses
Dr. Emil Saceda, KEITech administrator, said that
the students are not only
taught tech-voc courses but
programs are in place to
make them understand the
value of discipline, having
the right attitude and the
importance of work ethics.
He says their students
usually get a culture shock
when they are new. If at
home they had nothing to
do, in the dormitory they
are taught to keep their beds
and help keep it clean.
Saceda added that in-

cluding this batch, KEITech


has already produced 529
graduates. Other courses
they offer are welding and
carpentry. They also have
a placement officer who
find jobs for the graduates.
We have a 90 to 95 percent employment rate, he
said, with most employers
expressing satisfaction of
how well-trained KEITech
graduates are.
Pay it forward
Paul Aquino, in his
speech, urged the KEITech
graduates to practice what
they learned. More importantly, he said, they must
not forget to pay it forward. KEITech encourages
graduates who land good
jobs to sponsor a scholar in
the school to keep the cycle
of generosity going.
He said that as KEITech graduates, they are
well equipped to brave
the world. Your armor is
your attitude, your spade is
your work ethics and your
horse is what you learned
from KEITech, he said in
Filipino.

He also announced that


they are the last batch of
Tourism graduates of KEITech. The course offering,
he said, will be re-offered
by 2016. In between, he
said, they would only offer
short courses on carpentry,
plumbing and electrical
installation.
KEITECH is gearing
up to train over 1,000 trainees in 27 months, instead
of only 250 trainees (on
carpentry, plumbing and
electrical) in the same period. Beneficiaries will come
from Ormoc City, Kananga
and other towns of Leyte,
he said.
TESDA regional director Cleta Omega, on the other hand, lauded the graduates for persevering and
pursuing their studies despite having suffered from
Yolandas wrath. This is a
manifestation of our determination to move on, she
said. The graduates theme
was Soaring High Above
Adversity. By Lalaine M.
Jimenea

will be played, to encourage . There is also an area


where water flows so that
the children can re-acquaint
with the element and appreciate its beneficial use,
rather than fear it.
Perez said the park was
designed with safety of the
kids in mind but added
there is nothing such as a
totally safe park. She also
stressed that it is in little
incidents like a bruise here
and a scrape there that
children learn to be careful.
Its also part of learning,
she said.
The group also hopes
to have a one hour per day
of play incorporated in the
schools curriculum, saying
that this is a World Health

recommendation.
DepEd regional director Dr. Luisa Yu thanked
Johnsons & Johnsons for
the donation. She noted
it was the first of its kind
in Leyte. She told parents
of the schoolchildren to
help maintain the park and
agreed with the observation that play time was also
important as academics.
We have a saying that All
work makes Juan a dull
boy, so play is also just as
important, she said.
A ribbon-cutting followed the program, after
which some 200 children
were allowed to use the
park. It was noted that the
slides were the favorite play
area among the students.

PLAY ... from P. 1


of their Di Lang Laro ang
Laro (Playtime is not just
pastime) advocacy. She said
that they decided to donate
a playground to one of the
Yolanda-ravaged schools
here, after an interview they
conducted showed how
traumatized schoolchildren
were of the typhoon last
November 8, 2013.
She said the playground
would offer the children the
chance to heal. We wish
to bring back a sense of normalcy in the lives of these
kids with active play as a
means to heal them from
the trauma Yolanda caused.
Llanes said that in
play, the kids learn a lot of
values. Leadership, teamwork, discipline and many

more. As for the toys, she


said company employees
donated three Superhero
toys each to come up with
enough to give away to the
elementary students.
Sigrid Perez of Play
Philippines and playground
designer, said that the playgrounds design was based
on the childrens sentiments
which they gathered in an
interview. She said that
during a random interview,
they found out the kids still
feared water and lamented
the loss of their homes,
among other concerns.
The playground, she
said, has a tree house where
the kids can play and associate itas a refuge. It would
also be where board games

from C to P and the entries of the date of marriage
which is October 7, 1979 and place of marriage which
is at Ormoc City be cancelled or deleted.

The Busay Tres, a little known waterfall at Sitio Butnga in


Villaba, Leyte.

IMMY ELORDE, a reader of the EV Mail in Villaba, Leyte,


has responded to the newspapers call to feature any
tourist spots in their town. In a series of e-mails sent
over this week, Jimmy excitedly reports about the cool
and relaxing Butnga Falls in the mountains of Brgy. Abijao
in Villaba, Leyte.
Admitting to having a nosebleed writing his account,
Jimmy guides us through his beloved town to reach one of
its hidden treasures. He even believes that only the locals
of Brgy. Abijao, a remote village, know of the falls existence.
Actually, there are three falls Busay Uno, Busay Dos and
Busay Tres. Busay Tres is the most majestic of them all, he
proudly describes.
