Transport group to hold a 3-day nationwide strike

March 29, 2017
After the 1-day strike that happened a few weeks back, Transport Group Samahan ng Tsuper at Operators ng Pilipinas Geniune Organization (Stop and Go Coalition) is looking to hold a 3-day strike to further protest against the implementation of modernizing old jeepneys. According to sources, the group refused to disclose the exact date of when they are plotting to push through with the strike but Jun Magno, President of the Stop and Go protest said that they are going to announce it the night before the actual event.

It was in January when transport groups started the protests to challenge the plan of the government to phase out old jeepneys and replace them with new and modernized ones – which is a relevant part of the modernization scheme. This is the 3rd transport strike against the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board’s (LTFRB) suggested action.

In addition to what Magno said, they are planning to double, if not, increase the areas to be affected in the scheme compared to the latest strike which was on the 6th of February. That strike affected more or less 15, 000 commuters and with what Magno stated, this number will increase depending on what areas are going to be influenced.

On the LTFRB’s note, they said that in order for this matter to be resolved accordingly and immediately, these transport groups should plan and submit a counter-proposal instead of doing these strikes. LTFRB spokesperson Aileen Lizada warned those who are going to take part in the said 3-day strike may face franchise revocation and suspension. In addition to that, she said that the government body would lay funds for both drivers and operators as part of the modernization program.

Lizada also mentioned that the LTFRB, MMDA, and other quick response teams from different government bodies and agencies would assist commuters during the said strike. With this, commuters do not have to worry about them getting to one point to another.

Even after what Lizada stated, transport groups Stop and GO and Pinagkaisahang Samahan ng Mga Tsuper at Operators (PISTON) held their stand and did not change their decision to proceed with the strike that they have plotted. They said that these protests and plots would not be stopped unless the phasing out of old jeepneys thing goes on a full stop.

Complete list of State Universities and Colleges Covered by Zero Tuition Fee in 2017

March 29, 2017
After President Rodrigo Duterte sat down as President, the plan of having zero tuition fees for state universities and colleges was one of his prioritized plans. The Philippine government and a few more organizations apportioned funds for the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) which will enable students in selected states and universities not to pay for anything for their tuition fees. 

Free Tuition Fee

P8.3 billion was the amount granted to CHED to make this possible. This amount was from the P3.35 trillion Philippine budget assigned to the Congress. P5.8 billion from the budget is the one to aid the continuation of financial assistance programs: PAMANA Study Grant Program, Iskolar ng Bayan, Tulong Dunong Program, and scholarship opportunities for children of farmers and sugarcane workers.

JobStreet Report: PHL Top 10 Schools That Produced the Best Fresh Grad Hires

March 18, 2017
Some employers still gaze at fresh graduates’ alma mater in preferring who to hire, and the majority of them favouring those from top colleges and universities. However, they are also paying attention to graduates from other schools most especially if they found out that this graduate is quite deserving.

According to the latest Fresh Graduates 2017 Report of JobStreet Philippines, nearly most Fresh graduates from the University of the Philippines (UP) System were the top new hires in 2016.

The highest paid jobs are fresh graduates working in law, healthcare-related industries, journalism, IT-related jobs and Education.

JobStreet Philippines Country Manager Philip A. Gioca said in a small talk in Taguig City that the University of the Philippines System (UP) reclaimed the top spot from third place previously. He presented the report to the press on Wednesday, March 15. This is according on employers' insight of who among the fresh graduate hires were the top performers.

Previous year's top-rank Polytechnic University of the Philippines (PUP) was now second rank and Ateneo de Manila University (ADMU) was on third.

Gioca continued, "More than any time in recent history, the changes in attitude and preferences in employment have become rapid and constant.

"Job seekers should equip themselves with further knowledge should they want a distinct advantage in this highly competitive field," he added.

Gioca said employers considered attitude, field of study and salary in hiring fresh graduates.

Multinational companies get graduates who went through a management training or internship program. And there are also industries who don’t even look on the school where they graduated as long as they are qualified on this certain job being offered.

Does it really matter where you graduate? What really matters most is the behavioural skills of the applicant, their willingness to learn in everything. They must have the initiative to do the right thing and most importantly is to show sincerity and integrity not only on their chosen field but also on their co-workers

As the Philippine traffic is getting worse, the usage of Uber for Filipinos is becoming more prominent and frequent. Here are 21 Fiipino Uber drivers that deserve a million stars for going the extra-est of the extra mile.

The “too much care” Uber driver:






Kuya driver really wants to get his passenger home.

The driver who has a videoke in his car:




This guy deserves a medal… and a pretty neat incentive for being so creative and interesting!

The pun-tastic playwright:




The driver who likes to keep his passengers updated:




Some drivers need to have someone to be thoughtful to them as well, you know…

The F-boii Uber driver:




The “Filipina-mom like” Uber driver:





I don’t know about this one but I think kuya needs a break…

The Uber driver/matchmaker:





Kuya driver really knows the game, eh?

The Uber sensitive driver:

Registration for Aspiring Law Student’s PHILSAT starts March 2

March 10, 2017
According to the memorandum issued on December 29, 2016, starting next academic year, wannabe law students will be required to take the Philippine Law School Admission Test (PhilSAT) as one of the qualifications before they can be admitted to any law school.

PhilSAT entrance Exam

This is a one-day aptitude test for aspiring law students that will assess their academic potential before admittance to any law school.

The aspiring students will have to register online starting March 2 and the deadline is until April 3, 2017 through the website of accredited testing administrator which is the Center for Educational Measurement Inc. (CEM).

Ensure that you have the following before you register:

1) A valid e-mail account which you will use for your online application.
2) One recent unretouched 2’x2’ digital photo or at least 600x600 pixels with white background.
3) A valid passport if you are NOT a Filipino citizen.

The first PhilSAT exam to be administered by the Legal Education Board (LEB) is April 16, 2017, in the following venues around the country: Baguio City - University of Cordillera, Metro Manila- University of Santo Tomas, Legazpi City – Aquinas University, Cebu City – University of San Jose - Recoletos, Iloilo City – University of San Agustin, Davao City – Jose Maria College, and Cagayan de Oro City – Xavier University.

Those who are competent to take the exam include:

1) Holders of a 4-year bachelor’s degree, or its equivalent from duly recognized higher education institutions in the Philippines

2) Graduating student of a 4-year bachelor’s degree, or its equivalent, from duly recognized higher education institutions in the Philippines at the end of the school year when the PhilSAT is administered.

3) Graduate from foreign higher education institutions with degrees equivalent to a 4-year bachelor’s degree as certified by the Commission on Higher Education.

This is a uniform exam for all aspiring law students because not all schools have entrance examinations.

According to LEB, law schools can also ask potential students to take the complementary exams because they do not want to restrain academic free will.

Those who will graduate with honor who has granted Professional Civil Service Eligibility, who are enrolling within 2 years from their college graduation, are exempted from taking the PhilSAT. They only have to submit their civil service recognition to the LEB.

There will be an examination fee of P1, 000 which can be paid online or via over-the-counter deposit in Bank of the Philippine Islands (BPI) branches.

LEB Chairperson Emerson Aquende said that this school year 2017-2018 will be the pilot year for the exam with the passing rate of 55%. Students who will fail will still be allowed to enroll in Bachelor of Laws or Juris Doctor programs.

However, the LEB will be very strict with the rules that students will not be allowed to enroll if he didn’t take the PhilSAT. All law schools are required to comply and if they don’t they will be subject to sanctions or a fine of up to P10,000.

Senate Approves Bill Increasing Maternity Leave to 120 Days

March 08, 2017
A maternity leave is the approved absence from employment of a female employee, granted to every mother for the purpose of giving birth and taking care of infant children.

Bill Increasing Maternity Leave to 120 Days

The Civil Service Commission (CSC) and the Social Security System (SSS) are two government agencies that are designated to conduct a review of the maternity leave benefits of women employees in the government service and in the private sector, respectively.

What people know is that the only allowable maternity leave is only 60-78 days.

Last Monday, March 6, 2017, on its third and final reading, the Senate Bill 1305, otherwise known as the proposed “Expanded Maternity Leave Law of 2017” was approved by the Senate with 22-0 affirmative votes.

This bill seeks to augment maternity leave from 60 to 120 days or four months.

Under this bill, female employees, regardless of civil status or legitimacy of her child should be granted 120 days or four months maternity leave with pay and an option to extend for another 30 days without pay.

Solo working mothers would be granted a supplementary 30 days for a total of 150 days with pay.

The measures also permit that 30 days of the 120-day maternity leave maybe transferred to alternate caregivers such as spouse, common-law-partner, and any relative up to the fourth degree of consanguinity, which also includes adoptive parents.

Fathers may also enjoy a 30-day leave under the new measure which is only a seven days of paid leave at present which was provided under Republic Act 7322.

The last time the maternity leave was increased was 25 years ago or in 1992 to be exact.

According to Senator Risa Hontiveros, authored and cosponsored the measure as chair of the Senate committee on women, children, family relations, and gender quality, “The new generation bill seeks to respond to the pre and post natal health needs of different working women and everyday realities faced by modern Filipino family.”

“By granting more time for a mother to be with her new-born child, we provide the optimal environment for neonatal and maternal health,” Hontiveros added.

Other co-authors of the measure are Senators Sonny Angara, Francis Pangilinan, Loren Legarda, Nancy Binay, Emmanuel ‘Manny’ Pacquiao, and Antonio Trillanes IV.

“This bill is the Senate’s way of providing greater assistance to Filipina women before, during, and after their pregnancies,” Senate President Aquilino Pimentel III said after the approval of the measure. He was part of the Senate’s effort to protect and promote the welfare of pregnant women.

Senate President Pro Tempore Ralph Recto said, “This bill is passed its due date. This should have been delivered a long time ago.” He pointed out, “On the macro level, longer maternity leaves do not harm to the economy. On the micro level, longer maternity leaves make both the baby and the mother healthy and happy.”

Hontiveros said that once this measure was passed into law, the violators of the proposed law would be reprimanded with a fine neither less than P5,000 nor more than P20,000 and imprisonment for not less than six years and one day or not more than 12 years or both.

She added that this bill would also bring the country closer to compliance with the International Labor Organization’s standards on maternity protection.

This bill is worth acclaiming because after 25 years maternity leave benefit was increased, a great reward for every expecting mothers.

CHED and DepEd Halts Field Trips

March 06, 2017
Commission on Higher Education (CHED) Commissioner, J. Prospero de Vera ordered all higher education institutions to suspend the conduct of field trips and even out-of-school activities following that deadly February 20 bus accident in Tanay, Rizal. This incident had killed 15 people, mostly college students on their way to a camping trip.


According to him, the entire commission unanimously approved his suggestion to impose a suspension on all educational tours and field trips in all public and private colleges and universities effective immediately.

De Vera added, “This is being done in consideration of the safety of students and it will allow an investigating committee to look into the incident surrounding the catastrophe that happened in Tanay.”

On a report, it was said that the driver of the bus lost control of his vehicle which slammed into a concrete lamppost. The bus was full of students of Bestlink College of the Philippines in Novaliches, Quezon City.

That incident killed its driver, a school staff, and at least 13 students. Around 40 students were seriously injured in this incident.

The new order will cover succeeding field trips and educational tours of students. The out-of-school activities include immersion in communities and even public service programs such as medical missions which are part of the National Service Training Program (NSTP).

CHED had given all the colleges and universities to develop optional activities to compensate for the field trips and educational tours.

For now, the CHED moratorium on field trips does not cover student internship and on-the-job training programs.

After CHED, the Department of Education (DepEd) also decided to defer field trips in all public schools for the rest of the school year. They are giving way to a review of existing policies covering the educational tours.

The DepEd said, “The review will cover alignment of field trips to learning outcomes, security and safety responsibilities, and accountabilities not only of schools but of parents and of other relevant government agencies.”

The schools that have already completed their permits and contracts have been already secured prior the moratorium are exempted. They may push through with the scheduled field trip but should firmly follow existing guidelines, most particularly the security of everybody.

The assessment came up as a result of the consultation with the regional directors and a conference with Education Secretary Leonor Briones and Undersecretary Jesus Mateo.

DepEd issued a reminder to school officials that all educational tours and field trips should not be made mandatory to students and cannot be used as a basis for the grades of the students.

Every student's focal purpose of joining the educational tours is only to gain knowledge and parents are keen to give their moral support by allowing them but with an incident like this, are we even confident and ensured to allow our children join another one?

12 Things Filipino Moms Say When They’re Mad At You

March 05, 2017
Moms – they can sometimes be a pain in the neck for some especially when they are doing the best they can to be a mom. Different mothers from around the world have different approaches or beliefs in raising their children. Filipina moms however, have a different approach when they are mad at their children – even at their husbands. Here are 12 things that Filipina moms say when they’re mad at you. 

 

1. When you ask her if she has seen the things that you were looking for:

“MATA ANG GINAGAMIT SA PAGHAHANAP HINDI BIBIG.” (Look with your eyes, not with your mouth!)

2. When you realize that thing is just somewhere around you:

“KUNG AHAS LANG YAN, KANINA KA PA NATUKLAW NIYAN!” (If that thing was only a snake, you already have been bitten!)

3. When you still can’t see it:

“KAPAG YAN NAKITA KO, MAKIKITA MO.” (If I see that things you’re looking for, you are dead.)

4. When you are finally happy that you saw the thing you have been looking for.. She continues the sermon you never really wanted to happen:

“PAANO NA LANG KUNG WALA AKO DITO, SAN KAYO PUPULUTIN?” (What if I wasn’t here with you, where would you go to be raised properly?)

5. When she sees you and your siblings get into a fight, you’re thinking that she’d stop you but then she goes:

“ITO KUTSILYO OH, MAGSAKSAKAN KAYO!” (Here is the knife, go ahead and stab each other!)

6. When you get into something and she is then asking for an explanation but you can’t talk because 1. She talks too much, and 2. She’s too scary:

“O, BAKIT HINDI KA MAKASAGOT? NAPIPI KA NA BA?” (Why aren’t you answering? Have you gone mute?)

7. When you finally decide to stand up and answer:

“ABA ABA, SUMASAGOT KA NA NGAYON AH?” (So you now learned how to answer to your parents in a not-so-childlike way?”

8. When you ask her for money because you have a school project:

“ANO BANG AKALA MO SAKIN? NAGTATAE NG PERA?” (What do you think of me? Do I secrete money out of my body?)

9. She then goes reminiscing with her good old life:

“NOON, PISO LANG BAON KO. BENTE LANG MASAYANG MASAYA NA KO.” (When I was your age, my everyday allowance is Php1. 00. If I had Php20. 00 I would already be jumping of joy)

10. When she’s mad that she states the obvious:

“ANAK KA TALAGA NG TATAY MO!” (You really are the child of your father!)

11. When she doesn’t let you have your social life:

“GABING GABI NA AT NASA LABAS KA PA ‘RIN. ANO NA BANG BALAK MO SA BUHAY MO?!” (It’s late at night and you are still outside, do you really have plans with your life!?”

12. And finally, when she is so mad; that every child and husband knows:

“ABA *CALLS YOU BY YOUR WHOLE NAME* AKO BA TALAGA BINIBIWISIT MO?!” (Well, *CALLS YOU BY YOUR WHOLE NAME*, ARE YOU REALLY DARING ME?!”

Which one of these is your mom’s line? Nevertheless, we love you mothers even though sometimes you threaten to spank us until we bleed. We understand now the love and the care you give for us. Thank you to all the mothers out there.
