Latest update for JUANING

The weather bureau, PAGASA, lowered public storm warning signals in Metro Manila and 12 other provinces in Luzon as tropical storm "Juaning" continued to weaken.

Under storm signal no. 1 are the areas of:
Aurora / Apayao / Cagayan / Pangasinan / Nueva Ecija / Northern Quezon / Zambales / Pampanga / Tarlac / Bulacan / Bataan / Rizal / Metro Manila

Still under storm signal no. 2 are:
Ilocos Norte / Abra / Kalinga / Isabela / Ilocos Sur / Mt. Province / Ifugao / La Union / Benguet / Nueva Viscaya / Quirino

Now I wonder if there will be classes tomorrow since Rizal is under storm signal 1 and rains continue to pour.

Math shortcut: Sum of 3 & 5 consecutive whole numbers

My daughter will be attending her 6 Saturdays MTAP sessions beginning on July 16. We paid 300 pesos for that but I am sure the sessions will help her enrich her mathematical abilities. I do understand that most of the kids find Math a bit hard but I always told my daughter that whatever you needed to study just take time, so give it time kids.

One Math topic which I may share to you is how to get the sum of 3 and 5 consecutive whole numbers without having so much computation, the shortcut should I say.

* 1 + 2 + 3 = 6 The sum of three consecutive whole numbers is thrice or three times of the second addend. In this case 2 is the second addend so 2 x 3 = 6. If you have 4 + 5 + 6 it will equal to 15 or 5 x 3.
* 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 = 15 The sum of five consecutive whole numbers is 5 times of the third addend. In this case 3 is the third addend so 3 x 5 = 15. If you have 10 + 11 + 12 + 13 + 14 it will equal to 60 or 12 x 5.

There’s this MTAP question that asked for 5 consecutive whole numbers that equal to a certain number wherein you can apply this concept.

Example: Find 5 consecutive whole numbers that equal to 110. First, you need to divide 110 by 5. Why 5? Because you are looking for 5 consecutive whole numbers. The answer will be 22 and it will serve as the third number or middle addend. To get the 5 numbers, get the 2 numbers before 22 and 2 numbers after 22 and that is the answer (20, 21, 22, 23, 24).

PCSO's advertising kickbacks issue

The Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) is being bombarded with different allegations happened during PGMA’s term. Aside from the issue on luxury cars being given to bishops, 2 advertising executives accused former PCSO manager and board member of receiving millions of pesos worth of kickbacks in exchange for approving ad contracts.

Alexander Quisumbing of Quizgem Ad Agency and Ludovico Yuseco of Crosschannel Advertising Services testified in a Senate hearing on Wednesday that Manuel Garcia, former public relations and advertising manager of the PCSO, received a 40% cut from every contract. The said 40% cut was deposited directly in Garcia's account (with copies of deposit slips as evidence) and allegedly totaled around P16 million from 2006 to 2010 from Quizgem alone.

Corruption is deeply rooted in government agencies and institutions and this hindrance the Philippines towards progress among other issues.

Bishops amidst luxury cars issue

The Catholic Bishops of the Philippines (CBCP) is being faced to justify why certain bishops requested and eventually received luxury vehicles from Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO) funds.

A certain Butuan Bishop Juan de Dios Pueblos asked and received funds as a birthday gift and bought a Montero but claimed he uses the vehicle to reach poor communities. Others are Cotabato Archbishop Orlando Quevedo who received undetermined vehicles for the diocese of Abra and the vicariates of Bontoc and Lagawa, Fr. Adriano Ruiz got a Toyota Grandia, Bishop Martin Jumoad of Basilan received a Mitsubishi Strada, and the Archdiocese of Caritas Nueva Segovia in Ilocos Sur an Isuzu Crosswind and Archbishop Fernando Capalla also requested an Isuzu Alterra for Fr. Roger Lood of Iligan City, but it was not released. PCSO Chief Margie Juico said a total of 5 vehicles costing P6.49 million were given to different Catholic prelates and institutions, all of which were charged to the PCSO charity fund.

My opinion on this hot issue lies on the laws that need to be followed and implemented both by the church and the state. I do understand the necessity of our catholic bishops to do charitable works in helping the government but without violating any law of the state and still showing the morals of their teachings by example. Likewise, the state must at all times show transparency and accountability in using people’s funds.

When it comes to people’s funds, the government has the sole responsibility on its usage. People, establishments, institutions and more are being obligated to pay their taxes and yet this kind of thing happened. It is very frustrating. I just still hope that the government will find a way to be aware how people’s funds are being disbursed in accordance with laws, procedures and policies of the state and prosecute those who violated it.

Sagayan Festival

SAGAYAN FESTIVAL is a cultural event every July 4 showcasing the colorful costumes of the women in the province of Lanao del Norte. It is an ethnic dance Sagayan which is performed by “warriors” clad in three-tiered skirts, brightly-coloured headgear and carrying elaborately painted shields and “kampilan”, a double-bladed sword. The dance involves leaping, turning, jumping, kicking and the rolling movements of a warrior ready to defend his master in battle. The "warriors" move in a magic-like trance and they believed that the motions drive away evil spirits while welcoming good fortune.
