DepEd: All Systems Go for World Teachers' Day‎

"The Department of Education and our partners are ready for the grand celebration of World Teachers' Day on October 5. Because our dear teachers work hard in their profession, we've also prepared hard to give them the utmost recognition they deserve on this special day," said Education Secretary Armin Luistro.

Through the collaboration of various divisions, centers, and units of DepEd Central Office, in partnership with other government agencies, preparations for the World Teachers' Day have been finalized. With the theme, "My Teacher, My Hero," different partners and institutions have contributed to make this event possible as they publicly express their support to the growth and development of teaching profession in the country.

We are hoping that through this celebration, with all efforts put into it, we will achieve our very purpose of putting our teachers in the pedestal because that is where they should be. They are noble souls who teach simply to make a positive difference,
told Luistro.

The October 5 celebration will be held at the PhilSports Arena (formerly ULTRA). Among the personalities who will grace the event are Commission on Higher Education Chairman Patricia Licuanan, Technical Education and Skills Development Authority Director-General Joel Villanueva. The department has also invited the President, vice-president, members of the upper and lower houses, and cabinet members.

7 year old Cris 'Kesz' Valdez, a member of the Dynamic Teen Company, will be at the forefront of this tribute by leading the national prayer for teachers. The prayer will be done simultaneously nationwide at 10:05 AM.

I am sure each one of us has a recollection of a particular teacher who, as we matured, has become even dearer and appreciated. Teachers inevitably will leave a mark on us and influence how we deal with lifes challenges. This is how powerful our teachers are and this is the very reason why we are making October 5 officially their day,
furthered Luistro.

Luistro called upon the participation of everybody to make this event memorable, honoring the teaching profession that opens minds and expands hearts so that each generation makes this world better for succeeding ones.

Simultaneous to the PhilSports Arena event, there will also be various activities within the DepEd Complex. There will be an open house in all offices from 8AM-5PM; Medical Check-up and Health Services by the Health and Nutrition Center from 9AM-5PM; Promotional Booth and product sampling by the Administrative/General Services Division from 9AM-5PM; Workshops on Wellness and Stress Management from 9AM-5PM, Personality and Communication Skills Enhancement from 1:30-2:30PM, and Livelihood/Entrepreneurial Skills from 2:30-5PM by the Human Resource and Development Service. - DepEd

Pantomina Lyrics And Music

Pantomina is Spanish for pantomime, movements imitating the courtship movements of the rooster and the hen. Ang mga babaye
Kung mayo pa nin agom
Maugay nin aga maugay nin hapon
Alagad kung sinda igua na nin agom
Maugay Octobre, Disyembreng sunudon. Ica palan, Nenang ang pinagsasabi
Magayon na burac sa lugar na ini
Magayon ang tindog malinig ang pisngi
Arin pa daw ang puso ang dai mawili. Can ica sadit pa sadit pa man aco
Si satuyang cawat magkudot-kudotan
Kinudot mo aco kinudot ta ca man
Sabi mo sa saco luhayluhaya man. Ang mga lalake
Hudyan sisaboot
Ang pinagsasabing ngarang pagcamoot
Kundi ang babayeng iyo minahilod
Akong minahiling can mga pangguyod.

Churches in Catanduanes

Catanduanes is composed of 11 municipalities, but there are 18 parishes distributed island wide. There are 3 parishes in the capital town Virac, 3 in Viga, 3 in Bato and 2 in San Andres. Although radical architectural changes have been made in many of the centuries old churches. From baroque to contemporary architecture and basic structural changes from coral stones to cement. Still many of the old practices and traditions are revered and observed up to this day. Happy Easter! Vicariate of Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception Vicar Forane: Rt. Rev. Msgr. Jose B.

Philippine Mining Act of 1995

With the recent issue of magnetite ore mining overwhemingly opposed by residents in the town of Bagamanoc and recently moved the mining site off the coast of Panganiban (Payo), I am compelled to post this Mining Act to serve as reference. "Republic Act No. 7942 or the Philippine Mining Act of 1995 (“Act”) is the governing law that regulates mineral resources development in the country. One of the primary objectives of this act is to revitalize the ailing Philippine mining industry by providing fiscal reforms and incentives and maintaining a viable inventory of mineral reserves to sustain the industry through the infusion of fresh capital through direct investments to finance mineral exploration and/or development activities. The original implementing rules and regulations of the Act was prepared in 1995, and was revised in 1996 under DENR Administrative Order 96 – 40, the revised implementing rules and regulations (RIRR). Collectively, the Act and its RIRR take into considerat…

Wildlife in Catanduanes

Moving around the island, particularly in the remote barangays located in the hinterlands, one can find unusual pets and not often seen animals, some were hunted down to near extinction. Philippine long-tailed macaque or "ukay" are teeming in some parts of the island, often a menace to small farmers' crops. Wild chicken or "abukid" are at times sold as pets by ambulant vendors. The look is no different from a domesticated chicken but I think its smaller and lighter. Long ago wild deers or "usa" can be found in the lowlands and some even tried domesticating this wild animal. But in later years their population had drastically diminished. Same with the wild pig or "opon", a delicacy for many because of less fat and tastier compared to hybrids. The look is very much different from domesticated pigs, mean looking, small and hairy. A dreaded species of Philippine cobra or "haras" as the locals calls it, is found also in the island…

Japanese Retirement Village in the Philippines

The Philippines is being eyed as a prime medical, health care and retirement destination for Japanese. According to studies, one out of four people in Japan will be aged 65 by 2020, from one out of six in 2000. Now is the best time to set up the retirement village for Japanese as baby boomers will start retiring in 2007. Several notable Japanese companies have already initiated building medical and retirement havens in the Philippines. These include Sanyo Emeritus Co. Ltd., a joint venture between Sanyo Electric and Emeritus Corp. of Seattle, which provides "assisted living" services in the US and Canada; as well as Tokushukai Medical Corp., Japan's largest hospital chain, which is putting up a $100 million, 1000-bed hospital in the Philippines, targeting elderly Japanese citizens. The Philippines is highly regarded because of its mild climate enjoyed by Japanese, its close proximity to Japan, the high quality of the Philippines' healthcare workforce, and the sign…
