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

An Urban Legend

Reading online threads, blogs, testimonials, analysis and historical accounts about the fate of Fray Diego de Herrera and the crew of galleon Espiritu Santo leads me to conclude it as an urban legend. The characters are factual but the story was distorted, exaggerated and sensationalized. Here is another version about the fate of Fray Diego de Herrera written by Fray Juan de Medina, O.S.A. in 1630 but printed in Manila in 1983. Please read... "In these early years a disaster befalls the Augustinians, and somewhat dashes their hopes. This is the death of Diego de Herrera with ten priests who are coming, six from Spain and four from Mexico, to augment the missionary efforts. Of the thirty-six priests obtained by Herrera on his mission to Spain, but six set sail for the Philippines. The four from Mexico who join them are: Francisco Martinez, of the chair of writing in the University of Mexico, an excellent Greek and Latin student, who had been prior of the Augustinian convent in …

Bicol Eyes Tilapia Production for Export Market

PILI, Camarines Sur, Nov. 8 (PNA) -- Bicol is taking the challenge of producing tilapia for both the domestic and export markets. Local fishery authorities say there is a big area for growth in the production in Bicol of both the small-sized tilapia which is a hit in the local market and the big-sized that is consistently gaining popularity abroad. The region had vast freshwater resources that are highly suitable for large-scale production. Among these are the Bato and Buhi Lakes in Camarines Sur, Danao Lake in Polangui, Albay, Bulusan Lake in Sorsogon and several other smaller sites sporadically distributed among the six provinces of the region. All in all, the region’s inland water resources capable of tilapia production are measured at 246,063 hectares of swamplands, 253,854 hectares of brackish water fishponds, 200,000 hectares of lakes, 31,000 hectares of rivers and 19,000 hectares of reservoir, according to data obtained from the Bureau of fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BF…

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.
