Nina Arnejo Precillas will be missed. While alive, she made a difference in the lives of people around her. In death, she did the same. We were not close but she was a dear sister in our charismatic community.

One of the most interesting gifts I received last Christmas was a set of books and a DVD on Saving the Planet from Barbs Fortunato (a former student in UP Cebu High School). It addresses vital questions: Can ordinary people help save our planet under siege from environmental crises, and what does it take to change attitudes and lifestyles to consume and waste less? This Asian series profiles six successful initiatives that combine knowledge, skills and passion to create cleaner and healthier environment through local action. The stories were identified from a regional competition, and produced by TVE Asia and Pacific in cooperation with local organizations and film crews. Filmed in Cambodia, India, Laos, Nepal, The Philippines and Thailand, and produced in 2009, each story runs for fifteen minutes.

In all its legislation and moral injunctions, Islam lays great stress on nobility of feelings, loftiness of aims and purity of intentions. The Prophet (peace be on him) said:
However one calls it, the seniors’ cash assistance given by the Cebu City government is valued by its recipients who use it to buy medicine, food, treats for their family, and other essentials to sustain their remaining days in this world.

Nyor Gamay (NG): Nyor, unsa man na ang “Piety?”

“Even the gods cannot help those who do not seize opportunities.” This Asian proverb resonates in post-typhoon “Yolanda” efforts. They range from rehabilitation “czar” Panfilo Lacon skidding into his old cop role to buttressing coastal forests like mangroves, beyond Leyte Gulf, throughout the country.
More than two months after it leveled almost everything in its path, supertyphoon Yolanda continues to haunt school children, no thanks to red tape. Last Monday, at least two mayors from northern Cebu scored the Department of Education (DepEd) for its painfully slow action in repairing storm-damaged classrooms. The long Christmas break came and went. [...]

On 19th November 2013, voting 14-0, the Supreme Court declared as unconstitutional the Priority Development Assistance Fund (PDAF) or “pork barrel.” What about the Disbursement Acceleration Fund (DAP) that very few people knew or understood before Senator Jinggoy Estrada exposed it during his privilege speech before he went to the US? Until now, the question [...]
