Marikina Mayor Teodoro bubuhayin ang Programa ng Nutribun na may libreng gatas

Hindi lamang ang Lungsod ng Maynila ang nagpaplano na maibalik ang programang Nutribun ng Marcos sa kanilang lugar, kahit na ang Lungsod ng Marikina ay nagpatupad ng nasabing proyekto upang malutas ang malnutrisyon sa kanilang nasasakupan.

Ayon kay Marikina City Mayor Marcelino Teodoro, nais niya ang mga bata sa kanyang lugar na maiwasan ang pagdurusa sa gutom habang sila ay nag-aaral.

Sinabi niya na ang mga mag-aaral sa pampublikong paaralan ng Marikina City na nag-aaral mula kindergarten hanggang Grade 1 ay makakatanggap ng isang piraso ng libreng pampalusog na tinapay at may isang libreng baso ng gatas.

Mayroong 21,000 kinder at grade 1 mga pampublikong paaralan sa lungsod ng Marikina

“Sa public schools maraming undernourished, kaya ang intervention namin ay feeding program,” Marcelino said.

“We found out na ang ibang bata ay walang mga baon kaya wala silang makain na masustansya,” he added.

Inihayag din ni Teodoro na ang kanilang nutribun ay binubuo ng mga nakapagpapalusog na sangkap tulad ng, itlog, kalabasa, at malunggay.

Nilalayon ng Pamahalaang Lungsod ng Marikina na wakasan ang malnutrisyon sa susunod na taon.

Ang programa ng Nutribun ay naging tanyag sa pamumuno ni dating Pangulong Ferdinand Marcos noong 1970s.

Kinontrol ng pamahalaan ang paggawa ng tinapay noong 1975 na nagmula sa Estados Unidos Agency for International Development (USAID).

Ang nasabing programa ay itinuturing na tagumpay matapos ang rate ng malnutrisyon sa Pilipinas ay bumagsak nang malaki.

Ang ilang Marikeño na nabuhay sa panahon ng Marcos ay nagsabi na ang nutribun na ginawa ng gobyerno ng Marikina City ay natikman tulad ng tinapay na ginawa noong mga 1970, gayunpaman, ang kasalukuyang bersyon nito ay mas malambot.

ABS-CBN Franchise Issue: Press Freedom is a Right, Access to a TV Frequency/Platform is a Privilege

ABS-CBN Franchise Issue: Press Freedom is a Right, Access to a TV Frequency/Platform is a Privilege

No, the ABS-CBN Franchise Renewal Issue arises not from Free Speech or Press Freedom as defined in the Constitution, but from Public Services as defined in the Public Services Law [0].

That is, the issue is not whether ABS-CBN should have the right to Free Speech (it will always have that right), but whether ABS-CBN should be allowed to use one of a very limited number of TV frequencies available.

Every free-to-air TV or radio station is required to secure a congressional franchise in the form of a Republic Act, a franchise that usually lasts for 25 years [1]. After this period, a network requires a new franchise, a new Republic Act, to continue operations.

ABS-CBN received its latest 25-year congressional franchise on 30 March 1995 via Republic Act No. 7966 [2]. Hence, the network needs to get a new franchise before RA 7966 expires 25 years later on 30 March 2020.

And that’s the problem.

The Philippine Constitution guarantees Press Freedom, but it doesn’t guarantee access to broadcast frequencies because they’re severely limited by Science.

In the case of TV, there are at most 12 available VHF channels (Channels 2, 3, to 13) and at most 38 in the UHF band (Channels 14 to 51) [3].

Reporters sans frontières / Reporters Without Borders / RSF recognizes this reality when it wrote [1]:

“Licensing became necessary as broadcast frequencies constitute a scarce resource… In Metro Manila for example, the frequency is limited to 23 physical spots for TV channels… and they are all taken at the moment.”

The TV firm ABS-CBN, by virtue of Press Freedom, has the right to create and distribute content, but it has no inalienable right to broadcast over the VHF Channel 2 Frequency.

If access to a TV frequency is an inalienable right of every Filipino, then every Filipino should have his own TV channel. Now, how do you divide the 23 TV frequencies in Metro Manila among its over 10 million residents?

That’s impossible, hence the need for Congressional Franchises, meaning the government has the authority to decide which TV broadcaster wannabes are in the best position to serve Public Interest.

ABS-CBN’s dominion over Channel 2 means somebody else didn’t get it, and that dominion is a privilege granted through an Act of Congress.

Even without a Congressional Franchise, ABS-CBN may still broadcast over the internet, syndicate its content, or do pretty much whatever it wants EXCEPT broadcast via VHF/UHF TV frequencies.

In short, the Constitution guarantees Press Freedom, but it DOES NOT guarantee access to TV frequencies.

Opinion:

Tita Nepomuceno : Free speech even they’re lies? Free speech even if they confuse the minds of filipinos, rather than enlighten them of the truth? Free speech to destroy the integrity of people they don’t want? Use press freedom to be partial to some sectors? Press freedom to operate and earn insurmountable profit without paying taxes? And here is ABS-CBN crying out that their free speech or press freedom is being supressed? ABS-CBN’s meaning of press freedom is as twisted as the minds of the people running the network.

If totoo ang travel Ban, Bakit ang ABS-CBN, GMA, Inquirer at Rappler, can’t provide the Final US House Bill?

If totoo ang travel Ban, Bakit ang ABS-CBN, GMA, Inquirer at Rappler, can't provide the Final US House Bill?

Puro lang pamgpagulo ang pina published ng media, especially ABS-CBN, Inquirer at Rappler, bumabasi sa tweet at post ng dalawang US Senador na puro LP at closed kay De Lima, at of course, best friends siguro ni De Lima ang dalawang senator na kanyang taga pangtanggol.

So, puro lang publicity ang ginagawa ng media, para masira ang administrasyong Duterte, so, bakit hindi nila kayang ipakita ang FINAL SIGNED CONGRESS HOUSE BILL NG 2020 BUDGE NG USA.?

Kasi in short wala naman talaga, probbably on the draft na gawa ng dalawang  US Senators Dick Durbin and Patrick Leahy, so nasaan ang final signed house bill?

FYI, mayroon tayong FACT CHECKERS, vera files at rappler, pero wala tahimik sila, kasi wala silang mai provide at hindi nila kayang kalabanin ang kapwa nila media.

Look, vera files, Ellen Tordellas, asking the final signed provisions na e ban ang mga PH officials na dahilan sa pagpapakulong kay de lima.

Senator Leila de Lima said the 2020 US Budget Law (HR 1865, http://bit.ly/2Zy4r9S) references to a certain explanatory statement which would, in turn, confirm that a clause that specifically mentions her is essentially a part of HR 1865.

At kung iisipin natin, dalawang US senator lang at hindi yan papatulan ng ilang US senators, kasi in short, anong paki alam ng ilang US senators sa kaso ni De Lima, dalawang closed friends ni de lima vs, majority US senators, pag aakasayahan pa ba nila si De lima, dahil lang sa dalawang senators?

Fact Checkers Rappler at Vera Files Tahimik sa mga Fake News ng mga media hinggil sa #SEAGAMES

Fact Checkers Rappler at Vera Files Tahimik sa mga Fake News  at Misleading news ng Media 

Walang kibo, walang aksyon, tahimik ang Facebook Fact Checkers sa mga kumakalat na mga wrong, misleading, half truth, sensionalized news at mga misleading news ng ABS-CBN, Inquirer, CNN, GMA news at ng iba pang media.

Sa mga kumakalat na mga misleading news, half truth kung saan, marami sa mga ulat ng media na walang katotohanan, at half truth (meaning hindi kumukuha ng buong detalye ng report at hindi kumuha ng ulat sa bawat panig) tulad ng “KIKIAM” bakit hindi sila nag tanong sa Hotel na siyang nag hain ng pagkain, kung kikiam nga ba?

In this case, this is a half truth news, kukunin lamang ang panig ng isang party para ma sensationalize at magkaroon ng negative news at masira ang #SEAGAMES at imahi ng bansa.

Another fake news mula sa isang dating reporter ng ABS-CBN, kung saan naglagay ng caption sa isang photo na kung saan makikita sa photo na ginawang table clothe ang watawat ng ating bansa.

Another fake news ng Inquirer, posting wrong photo na kinuha from Nepal, grabi na panira, maka pag balita at makapanira lang, pwedi namang puntahan ang actual aquatic park na kugn saan gaganapin ang #seagames acquatic competition.

Pero tahimik ang rappler at vera files sa mga fales at misleading news. .
