A Mindanao-wide virtual Short Film Festival and Competition will take place on December 2020 and the call for entries has been cast.
Halad to Health, in partnership with the Ateneo de Davao University Culture and Arts through the Ateneo Film Circle and the Samahan ng mga Mag-aaral ng Sining at Komunikasyon, will hold the virtual event dubbed "CineMasayud: A Halad to Health Online Mindanao Short Film Fest and Competition."
The event is open to all youth across Mindanao to explore their creativity while using art as a safe space to promote dialogues and services responding to Youth Mental Health issues. The event also aims to provide awareness and calls for action about local health issues and other societal ills in Mindanao and influence others to do the same through filmmaking.
This current global health crisis has caused severe effects on families and communities in the country not only because of the fear over COVID-19 but also because of how it disrupted their livelihoods. Many businesses shut down, causing widespread loss of jobs. For those who still had some incomeleft, they could not so easily access their cash at banks and ATMs because public transportation was shut down during the lockdown and quarantine periods.
Fortunately, there were Cash Agad partner agents in their communities who were ready to provide banking services even amid the pandemic. While Cash Agad partner agents were also affected by the restrictions of the community quarantine, they were still able to help their respective barangays and are now bouncing back and continuing with their ...

The Securities and Exchange Commission has issued a stern warning against Forsage, an investment scheme headed by a certain Lado Okhotnikov. Forsage is NOT duly registered with the SEC and lacks the necessary license to solicit, accept or take investments from the public or issue investment contracts and other forms of securities.
On June 30, 2020, the Commission said that Forsage is illegally engaging in investment activities in the guise of cryptocurrency trading.
SEC Cagayan de Oro Director Atty. Renato Egypto said that many from Region X have engaged with Forsage already.
“SEC Cagayan de Oro Extension Office has received numerous reports as well through email and direct messages inquiring about the legality of Forsage. This really concerns us and so we continuously remind...
I know what you're thinking. That thing experts call "donor fatigue" has kicked in and not many people are interested to donate to COVID-19 related fundraising causes. I was afraid of that, too. However, we all know that this fight isn't over (and won't be for quite a while) and our brave and hardworking medical front liners need all the help so that they can work and treat efficiently.
We need to UNITE.
So here goes --- how about if we help procure Department of Health-approved medical grade PPEs for our front liners, who, for 3 months running, have been sacrificing for all of us? And guess what --- we can actually do this by donating as low as Php 100 (yes, that's US $2)
Join #CreatorsUnitedPH campaign, an effort that seeks to raise funds to procure DOH-approved medical grade ...
Trans-Asia Shipping Lines and 2GO have resumed their boat trips. In the case of Trans-Asia, they have resumed their Cebu - Cagayan de Oro, Cagayan de Oro - Tagbilaran, Cebu - Ozamiz, and Cebu - Iligan trips. For 2GO, on the other hand, they now serve the Manila - Cagayan de Oro, Manila - Butuan, Manila - Iligan, Manila - Ozamiz, Manila - Zamboanga and a host of other routes.
Both shipping lines also only cater to Locally Stranded Individuals (LSIs), Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) and Authorized Persons Outside Residences (APORs). That means no leisure travels allowed. Both Trans-Asia and 2GO also require passengers to present pertinent documents.
Check out the infographics below and don't hesitate to get in touch with both shipping lines if you need assistance:

Senate Majority Leader Juan Miguel F. Zubiri urged Malacañang to call on Balik-Scientists, veterans to face off African Swine Fever or ASF in the Philippines.
"We have to save the livelihood of our hog raisers, both large-scale and backyard; especially the backyard hog raisers. For many years, we have had the lowest hoof and mouth disease. We controlled Avian Flu and it failed to decimate our poultry industry. We are one of the preferred sources of pork and poultry by countries that had high standards like Japan," the senator from Mindanao said.
"That's why I'm aghast at how ASF is destroying our hog raisers. Together with the Agriculture Committee chaired by Sen. Villar, I have warned that the importation of pork meat, offals, and processed products should stop. Evidently, the...

I've been blogging for a good 15 years and I've seen, heard and experienced the good, the bad, the ugly, the controversial. Content creators, bloggers, vloggers and influencers behaving badly. Brands not understanding the value of good content and what influencers can do for their businesses. Marketing agencies underpaying creators. These are just the tip of the iceberg. Isn't it about time that we do something to help protect all stakeholders?

UPDATE: Less than a day after the Bukidnon provincial board decided to push through with the Kaamulan Festival 2020, Bukidnon Governor Jose Ma. Zubiri, Jr. has now canceled the annual gathering altogether.
Despite an advisory from the Department of Health (DOH) concerning the ongoing threat of the spread of the novel Coronavirus, the Kaamulan Festival in Bukidnon will push through. This, according to Bukidnon Second District Board Member Atty. Nemesio "Jun" Beltran.
The DOH advisory, duly signed by Secretary Francisco Duque, urged the public to "avoid attending, participating in, and organizing events that draw a huge number of attendees." The health department also recommends the cancellation of such planned big events or mass gatherings until further advice.
"The governor con...
Kaamulan Festival 2020 na! After missing this annual Bukidnon festival for a few years, I am finally going to witness it again. The Kaamulan Festival is the annual gathering of the 7 Bukidnon hill tribes namely Tigwahanun, Talaandig, Matigsalug, Higaonon, Bukidnon, Manobo and Umayamnun.
The Kaamulan Festival is also considered as the only authentic ethnic festival left in the Philippines.
By virtue of a provincial resolution authored by Bukidnon District 2 Board Member Atty. Jun Beltran, the Kaamulan Festival in Bukidnon is held from March 23 to April 23 every year. The dates are fixed. However, the sitting Bukidnon governor will have the option to change them provided there's a viable reason to do so.
Ergo, this year's Kaamulan Festival 2020 will be on March 23 to April 23...

So let me ask you this --- do you already have an insurance policy? I know, I know. Buying insurance is a sensitive issue especially for folks who live paycheck to paycheck, don't have enough savings or consider insurance as "luxury."
Truth be told, insurance is something that we need but, more often than not, can be tedious, confusing, time-consuming and EXPENSIVE to buy.
I DO HAVE GOOD NEWS, THOUGH!

The Bukidnon Sports and Cultural Complex is a joint project of the Provincial Government of Bukidnon and Senator Migz Z...
In Tagalog, kabit means attach, fasten or connect. In Bisaya, kabit is the usual term for mistress, male lover or someone you get entangled in an illicit affair with. The KABIT that's now for sale? It's neither ;)

So, yes, you could say that kabits are being produced right from Bukidnon, considered the food basket of Mindanao ;)
I first met Christine a few weeks ago. Apparently she has been following my blogs! A few days later, my mother and I met with her personally. We also met another Bukidnon entrepreneur that day, Paula, who made delicious pineapple jam, pineapple cider vinegar and pineapple filled muffins. They we...
