ALPHA STRENGTH – Stronger Than Before

  • Tuesday, June 21, 2016

  • JL Santiago Aquino

  • Walking a couple of blocks to work should not be tough, neither should carrying a child, nor squatting down to pick up keys from the floor. Physically, there’s no denying that life is better lived when an individual can go through his or her daily routine with ease. The human body was designed ready to take on physical challenges. However, the conveniences brought about by modern life have made even the simplest physical tasks difficult for some people.

    Alpha Strength is a gym which strongly believes that when a person is strong, everything becomes easy.

  • The Department of Education (DepEd) breached the 1 million mark reporting that 1,009,139 Grade 11 learners are now enrolled in Senior High Schools (SHS) nationwide. DepEd is expecting numbers to rise further since as of June 17, DepEd records show that over 1,600 schools are yet to submit and report their SHS enrollment data to DepEd.

    "Napatunayan ng Pilipino na handa tayo sa pagbabago. Nakatawid na tayo sa liwanag. Kaya naman pala ng Pinoy kung ating pagtutulungan," Education Secretary Br. Armin Luistro FSC said.

    5 Reasons Why You Should Use Torayvino Water Purifier

  • Friday, June 17, 2016
  • by
  • JL Santiago Aquino

  • If you believe that the water delivered to your house, either by the usual utility firm or refilling station, is potable and safe for you and your family, think again. Unfortunately, there are a number of factors that may compromise the quality of drinking water, whether coming from the kitchen faucet or filtered and bottled.

    Considering the unreliability of piping systems in the country, the water distributed by major concessionaires and local water districts may not be fit for drinking as it can be adulterated by old, dilapidated or illicit pipe connections. Water from refilling stations dotting almost everywhere, on the other hand, comes mostly in non-BPA containers, which are also not guaranteed to be properly cleaned 100% of the time, and may be exposed to pollutants during preparation, storage or delivery.

    Good thing there is the Torayvino Water Purifier––a new filtration solution now available in the local market. Torayvino promises effective remedy to the many hassles linked to having your water sourced from the tap or delivered right at your doorsteps.

  • JL Santiago Aquino

  • The Department of Education (DepEd) reiterates its call to all public schools to avoid requiring expensive school supplies for students to purchase as classes begin this year.

    The DepEd made the appeal together with the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) during the special monitoring activity for school supplies in bookstores around Recto Ave., Manila.

    DepEd Assistant Secretary for Legal and Legislative Affairs Atty. Tonisito M.C. Umali urged the administrators of public schools to refrain from prescribing any branded or expensive school supplies which contribute to budgetary constraints of parents specially those with children studying in public schools.

    Nald: A Kid from Cagayan Valley with Big Ambitions #Palaro2016

  • Saturday, April 16, 2016

  • ★JayL Aquino
  • Nald in action. CAVRAA football team member Ronald Dapena kicks his way through opponents during a game between CAVRAA and Region XII in the 2016 Palarong Pambansa in Albay.

    A small town kid with big ambitions, this is what best describes 17-year old Ronaldo “Nald” Dapena who is one of the members of the Cagayan Valley Regional Athletic Association (CAVRAA) football team. He came from San Antonio, Delfin Albano, Isabela, which is considered as one of the poorest barrios in the area. The third of five siblings, Nald’s father works as a farmer while his mother works part-time at a local bakery.

    “Medyo mahirap din po ang buhay namin pero kahit paano po nakakaraos naman po kami sa pang araw-araw at kung may pagkakataon, tumutulong din po ako sa aking ama sa bukid,” says Nald.

    Aware of their difficulties in life, Nald often finds solace in playing the sport he fell in love with at a young age, “Ten years old pa lang, naglalaro na ako ng football at madalas akong sumali sa Intramurals sa school. Nakapaglaro na din po ako sa mga Provincial Meets. Doon po ako nadiskubre ng coach po namin ngayon na si Mr. Alexander Tabubuca," says Nald.

    With continuous mentoring and guidance, Nald’s game continued to improve and develop along with his team mates. With dedication and team work, they became the champions in CAVRAA Meet where they won P15,000 and were qualified for this year’s Palarong Pambansa.

    Not resting on his laurels, Nald used his P1,000 share of the cash gift to apply for an NC II for Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW) at the Technical Skills and Development Authority (TESDA). Asked if he was hesitant to let go of his prized money given their financial situation, “Alam kong para sa gaya namin, malaking pera na ang P1,000, pero wala naman akong panghihinayang sa ginawa ko dahil magagamit ko din iyon para sa aking kinabukasan," he said. By investing his money wisely, he is now a proud holder of an NC II certificate.

    Everything seems to be going well for Nald until a little bump on the road temporarily stopped him in his track. In preparation for the 2016 Palarong Pambansa, all the delegates were required to train in Tuguegarao City, a place far and unfamiliar for Nald and his parents. All his life, he has only competed in his home province. Playing on a much farther venue meant additional expenses for Nald and his family, although the fare is only P50. Just when Nald was about to throw in the towel, coach Tabucaca came to the rescue.

    “Pumunta si coach sa bahay namin at sinabi sa mga magulang ko na siya na ang bahala sa pamasahe ko at titingin sa akin habang nasa malayo ako para hindi na sila mag-alala,” Nald recalls smiling.

    Believing in Nald’s potential as a good football player, there was no way Coach Tabubuca would let that go to waste. “Sayang naman ang talent ng bata kung hindi siya mabibigyan ng opportunity para mahasa sa sport na mahal niya, masipag naman at mabait kaya hindi ako makapapayag na mawala sa kanya ang oportunidad na makasali sa Palarong Pambansa,” said Tabubuca.

    When asked if Nald plans to further his football career, “Gusto ko po sanang ipagpatuloy itong football, makuha sa mataas na paaralan, makakuha ng scholarship, at matupad ang aking pangarap na maging propesyonal na football player. Pero tanggap ko din naman po na maaring hindi rin siya mangyari kaya iyon din po ang dahilan kaya kumuha ako ng SMAW. Hindi ko man maabot ang aking pangarap sa buhay at least po secure naman ang aking kinabukasan dahil may NC II na ako na maari kong magamit upang makakuha ng magandang trabaho at makatulong sa aking mga magulang at kapatid,” says Nald.

    Meet Edmi Bard, a 23 years old Grade 5, orthopedically handicapped student. Edmi currently studies at SPED Training Center in Cadis City in the nothern part of Negros.

    He is Negros Island Region's first Gold in SPED this year and got it from the Shotput 6KG category. His father works as a laborer and her mom is a sugar cane farmer. Bard is is the youngest of the 9 siblings. According to his coach, Edmi has to commute 1 hour from home and walk an additional 3 kilometers to go to school everyday.

    Bard defeated 15 other athletes from different region in this category. Negros Island Region (NIR) promised to give cash incentives to athletes who will bring home medals. P10,000 for Gold; P7,500 for Silver and P5,000 for Bronze medalist. While DepEd, gives P3,000 cash incentives to those who will win Gold in the main competition.

    Another Gold medalist from NIR is McMeryll, an intellectually disabled pupil who excelled in Running. He's joining Palarong Pambansa since 2011 and this is his 5th Palaro to date. McMeryll plans to compete in the 400m Relay Competition next.

    When asked what will they do when they already receive the P10,000 cash incentive. Both of them said that they will give the whole amount to their parents. Edmi said he can't wait to come home to Negros to gave her mom a pasalubong: a watch he bought in Albay.

  • ★JayL Aquino

  • Having clean, filtered drinking water at home, that is 99.99% bacteria-free, is the first step toward a truly healthy lifestyle.

    We drink water every day, and the last thing we would want to worry about is whether the water we’re drinking carries any potential danger to our health or not.

    While water from our water districts is generally clean and potable, many people are still not confident in drinking anything that comes out of their faucet. Water pipes are not as reliable as before.
