Pagpapasabog sa minahan ng semento, ikinabahalang makaapekto sa Angat Dam

Pagpapasabog sa minahan ng semento, ikinabahalang makaapekto sa Angat Dam


MALOLOS—Nagpahayag ng pagkabahala si Bulacan Governor Wilhelimino Alvarado ang mag pagpapasabog sa minahan ng semento sa bayan ng Norzagaray na di kalayuan sa Angat Dam.



Ito ay dahil sa posibleng magbunga ito ng lindol na may lakas na magnitude 7.2



Kaugnay nito, umabot sa magnitude 7.9 ang pinakamalakas na naitalang lindol sa kasaysayan na nagpayanig sa kalakhang Maynila sa pagitan ng mga taong 1589 at 2000.



Batay sa tala ng Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology, 23 malalakas na lindol ang nagapayanig sa Maynila at karatig na lugar sa pagitan ng nasabing panahon, at 13 sa mga ito ay naghatid ng mga pinsalang ngayon ay mababakas pa sa nasabing lungsod.



Ang magnitude 7.9 na pinakamalakas na lindol na naitala sa bansa ay higit namang mas mababa kumpara sa magnitude 8.9 na lindol na puminsala sa Japan noong Marso 11.



Ayon kay Alvarado, tuwing ika-3 ng hapon ay nagsasagawa ng pagpapasabog sa loob ng minahan ng semento upang mabuwag ang mga tipak ng silica na dinudurog upang gawing semento.



“Ang kinatatakutan natin ay baka makasama yung pagpapasabog sa West Valley fault line at maging sanhi ng lindol,” ani Alvarado.



Sinabi pa ng gobernador na “ikaw man ang ugain ng ugain, eh bibigay ka rin.”



Ang pangamba ng punong lalawigan ay batay na rin sa naunang ulat ng Phivolcs na ang Angat Dam na pinagkukunan ng tubig inumin ng kalakhang Maynila ay nakaupo sa West Valley Fault Line na nakabalatay sa ilalim ng lupa mula sa Bulacan hanggang Batangas.



Ayon ay Direktor Rene Solidum ng Phivolcs, kapag gumalaw ang West Valley Fault Line, maaaring maghatid ito ng lindol na may lakas na 7.2 magnitude, dahil mas mahaba ang faultline, mas malakas ang lindol na nalilikha nito.



Sa kabila naman ng pangamba ni Alvarado, sinabi niya na nakipag-ugnayan na siya sa mga opisyal ng Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) upang tingnan ng operasyon ng mga pabrika ng semento sa Norzagaray, Bulacan.



Iginiit pa ng punong lalawigan na hindi dapat ipagwalang bahala ang paghahanda sa mga lindol dahil hindi nab ago ang bansa sa malalakas na lindol.



Batay sa tala ng Phivolcs na naipon ng Mabuhay, umabot sa magnitude 7.9 ang pinakamalakas na naitalang lindol sa kasaysayan na nagpayanig sa kalakhang Maynila at karatig na lugar.



Ang sentro ng nasabing lindol ay naitala sa Taguig Rizal (ngayon ay sakop ng kalakhang Maynila) noong Nobyembre 30, 1645.



Ang nasabing lindol ay halos kasing lakas ng magnitude 7.8 na lindol na nagpayanig sa kalakhang Maynila noong Hulyo 16, 1990 na naging dahilan ng pagkamatay ng maramikng tao at pagkapinsala ng bilyong halaga ng ari-arian.



Batay sa tala ng Phivolcs, umaabot sa 23 malalakas na lindol ang nagpahayanig sa kalakhang Maynila at karatig na lugar nit sa pagitan ng taong 1589 at 2000. Ang pinakamahina sa mga ito ay naghatid ng pagyanig na magnitude 6.



Ayon sa Philvolcs, 13 sa 23 malalakas na lindol na nabanggit ay higit na mapaminsala.



Bilang patunay, sinabi ni Leonila Bautista ng Philvolcs sa kanyang pag-aaral na ilan sa mga palantandaa ng mga nasabing malalakas na lindol ay makikita pa ngayon sa mga istraktura sa Maynila.



Sa pananaliksik ni Bautista, inilahad niya na mahigit 150 bahay sa Intramuros at mga simbahan katulad ng tore, bubong at kapilya ng Katedral ng Maynila ang bumagsak; maging ang pader, bubong at mga tore ng iba pang instraktura tulad ng simbahan ng San Agustin, Santiago Church, monasteryo ng San Juan De Letran, simbahan ng San Juan de De Dios at kumbento ng Simbahan ng San Miguel; at iba pa.

Apr 25 2011 12:08 am
Published : Sunday, April 24, 2011 00:00

BALER, Aurora -- The local office of the Department of Public Works and Highways has allocated P418 million for the implementation of 71 projects and the completion of 9.116 kilometers of national roads including the Baler-Cemento road, San Luis-Maria-Aurora-Castaneda road, Baler-Dicaloyungan road and various roads along the Baler-Nueva Ecija route.


BALER, Aurora -- The local office of the Department of Public Works and Highways has allocated P418 million for the implementation of 71 projects and the completion of 9.116 kilometers of national roads including the Baler-Cemento road, San Luis-Maria-Aurora-Castaneda road, Baler-Dicaloyungan road and various roads along the Baler-Nueva Ecija route.

District Engr. Elmer Dabbay said the presence of efficient road networks and bridges will pave the way to easier access to the many tourist destinations of the province.

Dabbay said unfinished projects for the year 2009 and their construction were carried over to 2010. There were 66 carry-over projects, 26 were completed,17 still ongoing and 23 are yet to be started.

The Aurora Pacific Economic Zone (APECO) in Casiguran, Aurora will open up new airports, seaports and commercial establishments.

This progress will necessitate the construction of adequate infrastructure.

In Bataan, meanwhile, two district engineering offices responded to the call of the national government to alleviate poverty by constructing roads of high quality.

The office constructed 3.23 kilometers of local roads and 4.488 kilometers of national roads. It rehabilitated 6.62 kilometers national roads and 1.31 kilometers of farm-to-market roads.

For the year 2010, 1st District Engr. Wilfredo Mallari reported that P117,181,000 were allocated for the construction of 87 projects.

These projects include eight flood control projects, seven multi-purpose buildings, five classrooms and three units of water supply. The construction of the Fuerte Bridge in Morong and the asphalt overlay of the Bataan Technological Park Road were two of the major projects.

In the 2nd district, Engr. Medel Chua reported the completion of 94 infrastructure projects with an allocation of P466,383,535. These include the Water System of the Bataan Peninsula State College-Bagac campus in Bagac, rehabilitation of the Linao Road in Pilar, and the widening of the Quinawan Section of the Bagac-Mariveles Road.

So far, SCTEX toll revenues collected from January to August this year are up 30% to P412.16 million from the same period in 2009. This, as the number of vehicles using the toll road similarly rose by 31% to 5.877 million.

The increase comes on top of a tripling in both traffic volume and toll revenues in 2009 to 7.090 million vehicles and P497.17 million over 2008 levels, the BCDA said. -- Jessica Anne D. Hermosa

Higher collection should mean investment for this project would be paid in shorter time.

Kaya dapat i-post nila ang collections. daily, weekly, monthly, annually, as opposed to the investment for the project. Di ba nangako sila ng transparency, nasaan na yun. LRT, MRT, Skyway, MCTEP, Cavitex, etc.
Hindi yung parang walang katapusan na pagbabayad. Kung bawi na nila, maintenance na lang ang babayaran.

SCTEX helps boost economic dev’t in Central & North Luzon


MANILA, Philippines — With much-improved road networks and other strategic infrastructure projects in place, Central Luzon is now fast turning into a destination of choice for tourists and investors, domestic and foreign alike.

A regional official of the National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) made this observation, citing the entry into the Clark Special Economic Zone (CSEZ) of large business conglomerates, notably the Filipino-owned Ayala Group and the San Miguel food and beverage giant.

NEDA assistant director in Central Luzon Lynette Y. Bautista said some corporations engaged in business process outsourcing (BPO) were also coming in, further boosting the economic activities building up in the region.

Bautista was quick to point out however, that the heartening developments unfolding in Central Luzon were due in large part to the completion of the multibillion-peso Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEX) built by the state-run Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA).

The 93.7-kilometer SCTEX traverses the great Central Luzon plains, interconnecting the three key growth areas of the region namely the Subic Freeport Zone, the CSEZ and the Central Techno Park in Tarlac.

A linkup between the SCTEX and the 84-kilometer North Luzon Expressway spanning Balintawak in Caloocan City and Sta. Ines in Mabalacat, Pampanga provides seamless travel between Central Luzon and Metro Manila and has remarkably reduced travel time to Zambales, Subic, Bataan, Pampanga, Tarlac, Nueva Ecija and towards the north such as Pangasinan, Baguio, La Union and Ilocos.

“SCTEX enhanced the complementary roles of Subic and Clark. Tourism drastically increased in the region due to significantly reduced travel time,” Bautista said.

The BCDA built the SCTEX as part of a larger picture being envisioned by the government to transform Central Luzon as a logistics and aviation hub in the Asia-Pacific region.

From Subic to Clark for instance, travel time is only 40 minutes, while those coming from Manila would take an hour to reach Mabalacat, using Balintawak as the starting point.

NEDA supervising economic development specialist Greg Pineda indicated that judging from the heightened business activities now taking place in Central Luzon, it won’t be long for the government vision of dramatic social and economic growth to become a reality.

“Among the country’s regions, Central Luzon is now the third biggest contributor to the national Gross Domestic Product (GDP),” Pineda said.

He added that Clark and Subic registered hefty increases in visitor arrivals in over the past years following the SCTEX’s full commercial operations in mid-2008.

As a result, tourism-related business concerns in the region, including the Diosdado Macapagal International Airport in Clark were compelled to undertake expansion programs to cope with the growing demands of increasing tourist traffic.

The DMIA itself is expanding existing facilities to accommodate larger aircraft and unprecedented growths in tourist arrivals.

With all these developments, Pineda underscored the need for local and national government leaders to “respond positively” to preserve and enhance the gains being achieved.

Pineda also disclosed that the NEDA has its own multi-sectoral Regional Development Council (RDC) tasked to formulate the Regional Development Plan, 2011-2016 to attain the “Central Luzon 20/20 Vision for 2025”.

Chaired by San Fernando Mayor Oscar Rodriguez, the RDC charts the development and identification of priority programs for the region.

One of the hallmarks of the development agenda for Central Luzon, according to Pineda, is embodied in the plan’s vision statement entitled “Central Luzon: A Sustainable and Caring Global Gateway through Public-Private-Partnerships and Growth for All,” predicated on the principle that improving the lives of the people requires concerted efforts among all stakeholders—the government, business sector, and civil society to harness the region’s potentials for economic growth.

Pineda explained that in line with the President’s “Social Contract with the People,” a “Caring and Global Gateway and Growth for All” means that the marginalized and vulnerable sector of society would be given wider access to adequate protection in an environment of borderless commerce arising from the world-class airport and seaport facilities in Clark and Subic, and the region’s greatly enhanced mobility of people and goods-owing largely to the advent of the SCTEX.

Central Luzon cops target stolen motorcycles-several policemen from Nueva Ecija and Bulacan were linked to a syndicate.

Central Luzon cops target stolen motorcycles




PAMPANGA, Philippines - Central Luzon police are going after stolen motorcycles in the region to curb crimes.
Central Luzon Police Director Chief Supt. Edgardo Ladao has reiterated his earlier order for police to go after unlicensed or unregistered motorcycles to stop crimes being carried out by riders-in-tandem and stop the illegal sale of stolen motorcycles.
Ladao issued the directive during the formal turn-over of motorcycle patrol units and other equipment donated by the provincial government to Pampanga Provincial Police Office in rites attended by Governor Lilia Pineda.
He said Central Luzon and Metro Manila have been an open market for stolen motorcycles. "Ang ninakaw sa Metro Manila, dinadala sa Central Luzon, at ang ninakaw sa Central Luzon ay dinadala sa Metro Manila," Ladao said.
He wants police units in Central Luzon to set up checkpoints in their respective area of responsibility.
Ladao said more than 900 motorcycles were intercepted in various parts of Central Luzon during his first 2 weeks on duty and 500 were released to their rightful owners.
He said the campaign against unregistered motorcycles is aimed at neutralizing riding-in-tandem criminals.
Lawless elements, Ladao said, often use unregistered motorcycles.
Last month, several policemen from Nueva Ecija and Bulacan were linked to a syndicate engaged in sale of stolen motorcycles following the arrest of a policeman during a buy-bust operation in Sta. Maria town, Bulacan. – Report from Jess Malabanan, ABS-CBN Pampanga

Bulacan, handa na sa panahon ng mga bagyo

Bulacan, handa na sa panahon ng mga bagyo
ni Vinson F. Concepcion


LUNGSOD NG MALOLOS, Bulacan, Mayo 24 (PIA) --- Hindi hahayaan ng Bulacan na dumami ang masasalanta ng nalalapit na panahon ng mga bagyo.
Pinangunahan ng Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (PDDRMC) at ng Bulacan Rescue ang kauna-unahang Simulation Exercise on Water Search and Rescue (SEWSR) sa Santiago Guerrero Resort, Subic, Zambales nitong Mayo 19-20.
Ayon kay Gobernador Wilhelmino Alvarado, chairman ng council, layunin ng nasabing simulation exercise na mahubog at mapahusay pa ang mga kasanayan at kaalaman ng City/Municipal Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council rescue teams sa lalawigan, gayundin ang paggamit ng rubber boat at jetski.
Napapanahon umano ang SEWSR dahil sa nalalapit na panahon ng mga bagyo.
Dagdag pa rito, layunin din ng nasabing gawain na mapaunlad ang magandang samahan ng mga kasapi ng grupo.
Samantala, sinabi ni Liz Mungcal, pinuno ng PDDRMC, na tinatayang mahigit 90 ang bilang ng mga dumalo mula sa 14 na munisipalidad at siyudad sa Bulacan.
Maliban sa SEWSR, tinalakay din sa nasabing gawain ang water safety, boat at outboard motor handling, predetermined victims at rescue team scenarios, gayundin ang mga tamanag pamamaraan sa pagsagip ng buhay.
Dumalo rin upang magbigay ng suporta at mag-obserba ang mga kinatawan mula sa Office of Civil Defense ng Region 3 at Olongapo City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council. (VFC/PIA 3/PPAO)

Mga produkto ng bilanggo, nakararating ng ibang bansa

Mga produkto ng bilanggo, nakararating ng ibang bansa

ni Vinson F. Concepcion


LUNGSOD NG MALOLOS, Bulacan, Mayo 25 (PIA) – Nasa piitan man at nahatulan din, ang mga presong ito'y naiiba sa lahat. Kahit nasa likod ng mga rehas, kumikita naman ang isang bilanggo ng P240 para sa isang produkto na dinadala sa labas ng bansa.
Tinatayang 30 bilanggo mula sa Bulacan Provincial Jail (BPJ) ang sinanay upang maglala ng sombrerong buntal na kilala sa buong mundo bilang Panama hat at sa mataas na kalidad nito at kakaibang disenyo.
Sinabi ni Rosario Decasa, may-ari ng Baliuag Buntal Enterprises, na bahagi ng kanyang layunin na pasiglahin ang industriya ng paglala ng sombrerong buntal ang makapagbigay ng kabuhayan sa mga bilanggo.
Ayon kay Col. Pepito B. Plamenco (Ret.), provincial warden, kumikita ang mga bilanggo ng P160 hanggang P240 para sa isang sombrerong buntal, na ayon kay Decasa ay inaabot ng tatlong araw upang mayari.
Kamakailan ay ipinagdiwang ang Buntal Hat Festival na naglalayong palakasin ang nawawalang tradisyon ng paglala nito na naging pangunahing kabuhayan ng mga taga-Baliuag ilang dekada na ang nakalilipas.Sa mandaling salita, naging bahagi na ng kasaysayan ang sumbrerong ito.
Kaugnay nito, nangako si Gobernador Wilhelmino Alvarado na paiigtingin niya ang kanyang suporta para sa mga programang pangkabuhayan ng BPJ gaya ng tindahan ng pasalubong kung saan inilalako ang mga tindang kandila, sampaloc candies, polvoron, at iba pang handicraft; lahat ng ito ay gawa ng mga bilanggo.
Dumaan din ang mga bilanggo sa pagsasanay tungkol sa pagreresiklo ng mga produkto at sa mga serbisyo gaya ng massage therapy.
Nagtapos ang ilang piling bilanggo sa Alternative Learning System and Livelihood Program ng Kabanyuhay kung saan 13 ang tumanggap ng mga sertipiko ng pagtatapos para sa elementarya at hayskul at 48 naman ang tumanggap ng sertipiko para sa pangkabuhayang pagsasanay.
Kabilang sa pagsasanay ay ang paggawa ng mga accessory, chocolate candy, banana chips, at pastillas de leche.
Sa kasalukuyan, 2,145 bilanggo ang nakakulong sa BPJ at 86 naman ang mga kabataan sa Tanglaw Pag-asa Juvenile Center. (WLB/VFC-PIA 3)

Pagtataas ng matrikula sa 35 paaralan sa Gitnang Luzon, pinayagan ng CHED

Pagtataas ng matrikula sa 35 paaralan sa Gitnang Luzon, pinayagan ng CHED

ni Jojo S. Libranda

LUNGSOD NG CABANATUAN, Nueva Ecija, Mayo 24 (PIA) --- Itataas ng tatlumput-limang mga kolehiyo at unibersidad sa Gitnang Luzon ang matrikula at mga bayarin sa paaralan epektibo ngayong Hunyo ng taong ito, ayon sa Commission on Higher Education (CHED) regional office.
Sinabi ni Dr. Virginia Akiate, ang CHED-3 regional director, na ang pagtaas ng matrikula ay 12.22 porsiyento o katumbas ng P50 bawat yunit, na ayon sa mga otoridad ng paaralan ay gagamitin na pambayad sa sahod ng mga guro at pagpapabuti sa mga pasilidad ng eskwelahan.
Aniya, hiniling ng 36 na kolehiyo at unibersidad na dagdagan ang kanilang bayarin sa matrikula subalit 35 pribadong paaralan ang nabigyan ng pribilehiyo.
Ang rehiyon ay may 185 pribadong unibersidad at kolehiyo.
Sumailalim ang petisyon ng pagtataas ng matrikula sa proseso bago ito naaprubahan, aniya.
Ipinaliwanag niya na sa ilalim ng CHED Memorandum Order No. 13 na inisyu noong 1998, maaaring dagdagan ng mga pribadong paaralan ang kanilang singil matapos magsagawa ng mga kinakailangang mga konsultasyon sa mga parukyano.
"It’s a process. First, the schools must inform the CHED 15 days before they will inform the public regarding the tuition fee hike. School officials need to discuss it with students, parents, alumni, especially the student organizations (Isang proseso ito. Una, dapat ipaalam ng mga eskwelahan sa CHED labing limang araw bago nila ipaalam sa publiko ang tungkol sa pagtataas ng matrikula. Kailangang talakayin ito ng mga opisyal ng paaralan sa mga mag-aaral, magulang, alumni, lalo na sa mga samahan ng mag-aaral)," wika ni Akiate.
Sinabi niya na kailangang bigyan ng paaralan ang CHED ng isang sertipiko ng inilaang pagsunod (certificate of intended compliance) sa kung saan gagamitin ang karagdagang bayad sa matrikula.
Inutos ng CHED sa kanila na magsumite ng pagpaparis na talaan (comparative schedule) ng bayad sa matrikula – ang porsiyentong itinaas ng nakaraang taon at itong paparating na school year, dagdag pa niya.
Ipinaliwanag din niya na ang 70 porsiyento ng matrikula ay mapupunta sa sahod ng mga guro, 20 porsiyento ang para sa pagpapabuti ng mga pasilidad ng eskwelahan at ang 10 porsiyento ay para sa kita ng paaralan.
"We expected the number of enrollees in the private colleges and universities to decrease due to tuition fee hike. But we have to understand that private schools need to upgrade their facilities in order to cope up with times (Inaasahan namin na ang bilang ng mga magpapatala sa mga pribadong kolehiyo at unibersidad ay bababa dahil sa pagtaas ng matrikula. Subalit kailangan nating unawain na kailangan ng mga pribadong paaralan na iayos ang kanilang mga pasilidad upang makaagapay sa panahon)," aniya.
May pagpipilian ang mga estudyante, aniya, upang magpatala sa mga state colleges at universities na may katulad na mga pamantayan ng mga pribadong paaralan.

Aurora benefits from PhilRice technologies

Aurora benefits from PhilRice technologies



QUEZON CITY, May 30 (PIA) -- Farmers in the province of Aurora are adopting PalayCheck®, an integrated crop management system for rice developed mainly by the Philippine Rice Research Institute (PhilRice), to help the province in its bid to be known as the country’s “haven of fancy rice.”
According to Rolando C. San Gabriel, lead of the AURora ’s ORganically Grown Aromatic Rice (Aurora) project, 22 farmers who are planting Basmati rice recently graduated from the PalayCheck® Field School (PFS) in Brgy. Esteves, Casiguran.
“The farmers didn’t immediately adopt PalayCheck®, particularly the nutrient and pest management. But when the system was proved useful in managing sheath blight during this year’s dry season, farmers started to apply practices from the PalayCheck®,” San Gabriel recalled.
The project, a collaboration among the office of Sen. Edgardo J. Angara, Aurora Grains, Inc, PhilRice, and Rural Empowerment and Development Foundation, Inc, aims to package field practices that will produce good quality aromatic rice at the least cost.
Manuel Jose C. Regalado, PhilRice deputy executive director for research and the project's proponent, said that the cultivation of aromatic rice varieties such as the Philippine Basmati in the project sites is based on varieties’ production cost and marketability.
“Other than the potential high yield, we introduce and test varieties with less production cost but with high command price for farmers in this province to have a better income,” he said.
Implementers said another batch of Aurora farmers are expected to complete the season-long PFS in Brgy. Calantas. Farmers enrolled in PFS are trained for three cropping seasons, in which they learn proper practices on seed quality, land preparation, crop establishment, and proper management of nutrient, water, pest, and harvest.
DA-PhilRice is a government-owned and –controlled corporation that aims at developing high-yielding and cost-reducing technologies so farmers can produce enough rice for all Filipinos. (Ogie Salvador/PhilRice)
