Very informative article about the Philippines' culture and society. How Philippines developed as a nation and made its mark as Republic through fighting for independence and wanting to established the Philippines as a nation. Eventhough most of the traditions and beliefs are hand over by the colonialization of Spanish and American, distinct characteristics of the Filipino and exotic traditions were being maintained and practiced like being hospitable with a sense of pride, sharing a candid smile to everyone and the evolution of "Bayanihan" (helping in times of crisis) in todays era.

1946 Philippine Proclamation of Independence

In 04 July 1946, US President Harry Truman through US High Commissioner to the Philippines Paul V. McNutt finally recognized independence of Philippine state. It ended almost forty years (since 1901) of American rule in the Philippines. Consequently, this recognition means that the United States' representative government Commonwealth of the Philippines has ended, which started in November of 1935. Prior to this event, however, the Filipinos conducted the last election under the Commonwealth, which elected Manuel Roxas as the president. After declaration of independence, Roxas established the Third Republic of the Philippines making him the first president of the said republic.

Wanted: Bikes, boats for students in far-flung areas

Education Secretary Armin Luistro urges local government units to add bicycle lanes for students, and to ensure safety standards for students who will ride in boats.

Walking to school is probably a good idea if your school is right across the street, and not a few kilometers away.

Many children in far-flung areas in the Philippines have to walk up to 2 hours just to get to school. Worse, there are students in some communities who have to swim – in full school uniform – across rivers because of their desire to study.

Latest PH Nutrition Survey reveals little progress in beating hunger

HUNGER, POVERTY. Many Filipino households living under poverty worry about putting food on their plates on a daily basis. File photo by Rappler.
Not much has changed in the nutritional status of Filipino children in the past 5 years, the latest National Nutrition Survey (NNS) revealed.

Notes on Poverty in the Philippines
Smelly, sticky, wet: Making it work in the dumps of Tondo
by Fritzie Rodriguez Posted on DEC 04/2014

At the heart of Manila is “Aroma,” a temporary housing site in Tondo. To get there, one passes through “Happyland” — its name derives not from happiness, but from the Bisaya word Hapilan which loosely translates to “dump site.”

Public hanging: Manila’s homeless and the Philippines' dirty linen

The new street-homeless are everywhere – in the streets, on sidewalks, along the seawall of Manila Bay, and outside idle lands, abandoned buildings – as ubiquitous as their dirty laundry, left to hang dry, in full view of the public eye.
The skyline of Metro Manila is rising. The construction of high-rise residential condominiums is in full swing. Real estate is again booming.
But homelessness is ironically increasing, too. Metro Manila holds the dubious record of having the largest homeless population than any other city in the world. Over 3 million, or one-fourth of the total urban population in Metro Manila, are living in informal settlements.

The waterworld of Artex - Malabon documentary
Water, water everywhere: The irony of Artex

Life in the compound is idyllic. The afternoon sun casts a golden glow on the homes as a gentle breeze cools the surroundings.

There is only one problem: The entire compound is permanently flooded. Ironically, the 200 families living there do not have direct access to clean water. They have to row boats to get their daily water supply.
Sanitation is also another problem. Many families have to share a public toilet with neighbors or strangers. Because of poor access to clean water and sanitation, the children of Artex are at permanent risk of contracting diseases such as diarrhea and infections. Malnourished children and infants are even more vulnerable to such illnesses.
Artex is just one example of many communities at risk. But this community is not in a remote corner of the country. It's in the middle of a highly populated urban metropolis – where 5-star hotels with hot water running 24/7 coexist with homes that lack basic toilets.
One might think that such problems are only prevalent among remote rural areas. The same issues, however, are also experienced in urban cities like those in Metro Manila.
“The Waterworld of Artex” was produced by San Sel and Tep Chansophea, Rappler interns from the Royal University of Phnom Penh, Cambodia.

Paracale's mountain of gold

by/George P. Moya Published Oct 25, 2014

In the village of Maning, in Paracale, Camarines Norte, a network of pits and tunnels snake their way under a mountain, where thousands of people go everyday to search for gold. The area has around 400 mining pits in operation, up from just 20 in June 2014, but since a 7-kg. high-grade gold was found there, the number was dramatically increased to 400. Here, miners risk their lives daily to look for the precious metal, their ticket out of poverty.

The toll: destruction of nature, and even death.

Speak Your Mind

Filipino chanteuse, Regine Velasquez takes time off her busy schedule to examine the issues surrounding "children in need of special protection", a term used by UNICEF to cover all those children in difficult circumstances. They are the abandoned children who need love and shelter. They are the abused children in need of protection from abuse and violence at home. They are the street children - living and/or working on the streets. They are the working little ones who risk life and limb in hazardous work environments. To explore the issues in depth, Regine visited the community in Payatas, one of the biggest garbage dumps in Manila and joined the street educators on the streets of Manila.

Video: Life on the line

In the chaos of Manilas choked roads, a hair-rising mode of transport has evolved: trolley cars that speed through the citys rail tracks, evading frequent trains and the prying eyes of the police.

No traffic, laughs Henarco, pushing a parasol-shaded trolley along a railway track at great speed. Hes been running these rails for 18 years, and at half the price of public transport and a fraction of the travel time, business is booming. But we have enemies, Henarco says, referring to the high-speed trains, which come every 15 minutes, when someone hears the hoot we just jump off! The trains arent the only enemies for the community of trolley drivers who live and work here. They also face periodic raids by the railway police. Dinner, lunch, everything on this trolley, says Henarco, who was relocated from a shanty town around these tracks, which was demolished by the rail authorities 2 years ago. - Just play, the black screen is just the start

AGRARIAN REFORM AND PHILIPPINE POLITICAL DEVELOPMENT

Landownership problem and control of resources remains as a political development issue in the Philippines. Agrarian reform is a necessary condition for agricultural modernization and rural industrialization and the fundamental mooring for global competition. Agrarian Reform has contributed to improvement of the socio-economic conditions of landless farmers and political development of the Philippines in terms of engaging the landless in the process of policy making and distribution of large private landholdings to the landless. Modalities giving peasants a stake in society such as decisive role in agrarian legislations, engaging them in dialogue to resolve agrarian cases, presenting manifesto pinpointing their criticisms and recommendations on implementing rules and guidelines, identification of farmer beneficiaries and lands to be covered, negotiation on the mode of land acquisition and distribution and computation of land values, have significantly influence the process of democratization and establishment of participatory institutions at the local and national levels.

This is an entry to the "Project Inspire: 5 Minutes to Change the World" initiative (www.5MinutestoChangetheWorld.org). The project idea aims to promote food self-sufficiency, community consolidation and women empowerment by assisting them in starting and growing an agro-ecological community garden. The concerned community in Rizal, Philippines, is slowly abandoning self-food production to work on odd-jobs outside the community. It is hoped that with the project, community members will be encouraged to go "Back to the Roots" --- to bring back their food self-sufficiency while retaining a cash source, to bring back their community consolidation and to remind them of the women's potential to earn and lead.

Saving a Fishery and Coral Reef - Apo Island

In a remote fishing village in the Philippine archipelago, coastal fishers responded to falling fish stocks by working harder to catch them. The combination of dynamite, longer workdays, and more advanced gear caused stocks to fall faster. On the edge of crisis, this small community decided to create a no-take marine sanctuary on 10% of its coral-reef fishing grounds. This initiative sparked a renaissance of not only their fishery, but also their cherished way of life.

Visas, Permits Immigration for Foreigners in the Philippines

If you will not be relocating to the Philippines and wish to stay in the Philippines longer than 21 days you will most likely be required to obtain a non-immigrant (temporary) visa. Generally non-immigrant visas are issued for travel to the Philippines for a specific purpose and for a set duration. Aliens entering the Philippines may qualify for the following visa categories:

Aliens admitted as nonimmigrants cannot remain in the Philippines permanently. To obtain permanent admission, a nonimmigrant alien must depart voluntarily to some foreign country and procure from the appropriate Philippine consul the proper visa and thereafter undergo examination by the officers of the Bureau of Immigration at a Philippine port of entry for determination of his admissibility in accordance with the requirements.

Did you know that you can be deported for simply getting angry and raising your voice at a Filipino? It’s true! Let’s say that you are in a restaurant and the service is poor. You loose your cool and get angry at the waitress. She can go to the Bureau of Immigration and file a complaint against you, and most likely, you will be deported!

Work to set up an autonomous Muslim region in the Philippines to end a 45-year insurgency has been suspended and may be abandoned altogether because of a clash in which more than 50 people were killed, legislators said on Wednesday. A top official described the clash between police and rebels on Sunday, which shattered a three-year ceasefire, as a "misencounter" during a bid to arrest two militants who had taken refuge with Moro Islamic Liberation Front fighters.
The rebels, operating in the south of the largely Roman Catholic country, have agreed to disarm in exchange for an autonomous government.

How to behave in social situations in Manila. Here are a few customs and etiquette to be aware of during your visit to the Phillipines. Filipinos value honor.

The Story of Philippine Money
Video

 

The Culion Leper Colony Coinage (Palawan Philippine Coins).

From 1/2 centavo to 1 peso, year 1913 to 1930. Between 1902 and 1904, the Commission of Public Health supervised the establishment of a leper colony on Culion Island in the China Sea, some 150 miles South-East of Manila. A decision to provide the colony with its own coins, valid only for use on the island, was delayed until 1913 when the first series, made by a private firm, Frank & Co., in Manila was introduced. Later issues were struck at the Manila Mint after it went into operation in 1920. In all, there were six dated issues and a total of 16 varieties made for the Culion leper colony. Two have special features which call for note. The probability is that the half centavo, issued only in 1913, was not put into circulation. By unofficial report 2,000 of the 1930 one-centavo pieces were minted. However, none are known to exist in any collection and it seems unlikely that any were actually issued. (Look ref. HERE)
