KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia – Afghanistan's defense minister said Monday that efforts to combat the Taliban in his country were moving in the right direction and could bear significant results by the end of the year, despite the recent spike in U.S. casualties. Gen. Abdul Rahim Wardak acknowledged there was "a higher tempo of violence" in Afghanistan, but stressed that moves to bolster security in the key southern provinces of Helmand and Kandahar were proceeding according to schedule. "We are, for the first time, on the right track, with the proper strategy and also enough resources," Wardak told reporters during a visit to Malaysia. "So we hope that by the end of the year, there will be considerable improvement in the security situation." Last month was the deadliest of the nearly 9-year-old war for American forces with 66 deaths. U.S. commanders have warned of more losses ahead as the NATO ramps up operations in longtime Taliban strongholds in Kandahar and Helmand, where most of July's American deaths occurred. Wardak played down the impact of Sunday's departure of a small force of nearly 1,900 Dutch troops, saying he was not worried it might hurt security. He also dismissed concerns about the possible infiltration of Afghanistan's army by the Taliban following two shootings of Western troops by their Afghan counterparts. Wardak said the shootings might have been caused by "personal conflict or mental disorder." Afghanistan's army was becoming "a success story" that showed increasing discipline and effectiveness, he added. The eventual goal is to turn over the responsibility for nationwide security to Afghan forces by 2014 so that foreign troops can go home.

    BUTUAN CITY – The Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) announced Saturday the completion of P205 million worth of “Kalayaang Barangay Projects” or KBP in five provinces in Northeastern and Northern Mindanao regions. Lt. Col. Triumph Dominic G. Bagaipo, commander of the 4th Civil Military Operation (CMO) Battalion, said these completed KBP projects are already benefiting thousands of villagers particularly those in far-flung areas. The engineering battalions of the 52nd Engineer Brigade under Brig. Gen. Romulo M. Cabantac Jr. started the construction of these KBP projects in 2008 and completed in 2009, while some were completed early this year in the area of responsibility (AOR) of the 4th Infantry Division. These projects are located in the hinterland villages in the provinces of Agusan del Norte, Agusan del Sur, Surigao del Norte, Surigao del Sur, all in Northeastern Mindanao (Caraga Region), and Bukidnon in Northern Mindanao region.

MANILA, Philippines—Air Philippines, the low-cost carrier of the Lucio Tan Group, will soon fly to Surigao as it turns over its Ozamiz City operations on June 16, 2009 to its sister company, Philippine Airlines (PAL). AirPhil decided to leave Ozamiz after observing the city’s rapid economic expansion that requires bigger aircraft to accommodate the growing volume of air travelers and cargo.

Alaska have come this far in the PBA Fiesta Conference for them not to think of winning the championship outright given the first of three chances in wrapping up the best-of-seven Finals series. "We’re a confident team and we believe that we can get the trophy on Sunday," said Tim Cone in a rare display of bravado hardly seen from the winningest coach in the PBA’s 35-year history. "We’re ready to go." The Aces try to complete the latest in their series of shockers when they go for the kill against the embattled defending champion San Miguel Beermen in Sunday’s Game 5 at the Araneta Coliseum. The General Milling franchise jumped to a commanding 3-1 Finals lead following a 90-83 win in Game 4 on Friday night, putting the Aces on the verge of bagging a 13th league championship that would tie them with the legendary Crispa Redmanizers for the second most numbers of PBA titles just behind SMB’s 18. And Cone, having seen his Alaska crew stun crowd favorite Ginebra in the quarterfinals, eliminate top seed Talk `N Text in the semis, and appear to have San Miguel’s numbers in the Finals, can’t see no reason why they would fail at this stage. "We will obviously go for it," said Cone. “We know how to win back-to-back games, we know how to respond from bad losses. As our learning curve increases we’re getting better and better. So yeah, we think we can do it in Game Five." History does favor the Aces.

Butuan City (10 November) -- A new aquaculture technology is seen to alleviate poverty in the provinces of Agusan del Norte and Surigao del Norte in Caraga Region. During the 14th Board of Trustees Meeting of the Lake Mainit Development Alliance (LMDA), Engr. Joventito B. Jongko, Director of SECURA International Corporation presented a new technology which aims to propagate algae in some 100 hectares in Lake Mainit. Jongko, who is a licensed Chemical Engineer by profession said algae has high oil content and with simple treatment or processing, "it can be a good source of alternative fuel," he said. Jongko said, his company is on the process of finalizing the contract with the local government unit of Agusan del Norte for a possible partnership in propagating algae which is seen to address poverty not only in Agusan del Norte but as well as in Surigao del Norte ? the two provinces sharing the location of Lake Mainit which is considered as the fourth largest lake in the country. With the possible partnership of Secura International Corporation and the province of Agusan del Norte, poverty reduction is expected to happen in this western part of Caraga Region, in support to the poverty alleviation program of President Benigno Simeon C. Aquino III. (PIA-Caraga)

Claims ownership of luxury cars and motorbikes MANILA/CAGAYAN DE ORO, Philippines – A Mindanao-based car importer accused of smuggling luxury vehicles into the country surfaced for the first time since his residences in Talacag, Bukidnon and in Cagayan de Oro were raided by authorities. Lynard Allan Bigcas appeared in front of media sporting long hair, dispelling reports that he has changed his appearance and cut his hair. Imported vehicles were seized by the combined forces of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) and Philippine National Police (PNP) from Bigcas’ home on May 4. Bigcas’ lawyer, Atty. Joe Pallugna, clarified that a total of 5 cars and 15 motorbikes were confiscated. Pallugna said all of the vehicles were properties of Bigcas, but aren’t registered in his name because Bigcas neglected to have the registration transferred. The lawyer said Bigcas has deeds of sale for all the vehicles, valued at P4 million. Pallugna also denied allegations that the vehicles were illegally smuggled into the country. The vehicles were not purchased in the United States, Pallugna said, which explains why the Bureau of Customs had no records of the vehicles entering the country. Bigcas said he was on his way to Camiguin to meet up with his wife at the time of the raid. Upon receiving information that his home was raided, Bigcas said he immediately returned to Cagayan. He said he has not left Cagayan de Oro since, and has spent his nights sleeping in local hotels or at the back of his car. Black book During their raid in Cagayan de Oro, agents of the NBI recovered a controversial "black book" that listed clients from influential political clans in Mindanao that allegedly have bought high-powered firearms and luxury vehicles from the United States. However, Bigcas said that the much-publicized black book was actually his personal diary, containing names of his friends. Bigcas’ lawyer said that his client has plans to sue the NBI for damages. A case was also filed by his client for the immediate return of the 20 vehicles, as well as his diary. Bigcas said the search warrant the NBI had at the time of the raid was only for firearms. However, Bigcas said he isn’t hoping for the return of his cars, but he wants his freedom and a guarantee that he and his family will be safe.   full : http://www.abs-cbnnews.com/nation/05/13/11/alleged-car-smuggler-surfaces-cagayan-de-oro

Mr. Jose Angel A. Honrado General Manager Manila International Airport Authority Pasay City Philippines   Dear Mr. Honrado:   We are staunch advocates of local tourism. We strongly believe that responsible ecotourism is a good driver of sustainable economic development. If there is anything we Filipinos can be proud of, it is the unparalleled physical beauty of our country, and the inner beauty of our people.   But those of us who travel extensively domestically and internationally know how cumbersome, inefficient and opportunistic our traveling systems are, particularly our airports and seaports.   Take the case of the gateways of the country: our airports. There has been a marked improvement in the physical facilities of our airports, for which we congratulate those responsible for it. However, there is so much that needs to be done to further upgrade our services and make it truly world-class. We respectfully invite your attention to the tedious process of checking in and of departing from all our airports — the first and last stop of all local and international travelers.   To recall, the objective of a good airport is to make travel procedures as seamless and efficient as possible. Our airports have become perfect examples of bureaucracy, inefficiency, and what airport systems should NOT be. Indeed, it is also an example of the “checkpoint mentality” of our government.   Note:   1. There are security guards who pretend to conduct a cursory check on the entering cars. They wave their flashlights in the direction of the glove compartment and pretend to look inside the trunk. In reality, what they achieve is to waste the time of the passenger and create a garrison mentality. 2. In the entry doors of the airport, there is another guard who checks the ticket and ID. At this point begins unnecessary waiting lines. 3. There is an X-ray at the main door. While there are often a number of x-ray machines, there is only one or two open, thus creating another extended queue, and another delay.   Thursday, January 13, 2011, NAIA-3   Thursday, January 13, 2011, PAL Centennial Airport   4. At the NAIA-3, yet another guard checks the ticket and ID before the check-in counter. 5. Check-in counter 6. After checking in, we proceed to another line. We line up to pay an exorbitant amount of two hundred pesos (PhP 200.00) as the “terminal fee.” In all our travels around the world, only the Philippine airports collect a terminal fee. If we are so impoverished and must collect this terminal fee, can we not incorporate it in the price of the ticket? This would considerably ease the flow and movement of passengers at our airports. Institutions, such as airline companies and the NAIA administration office, are better placed to do the collection and remittances of large amounts of funds.       But that is not all. After paying this senseless terminal fee, we proceed to line up again for the utter futility discussed in no. 7.   7. A few meters after the booth where we pay the terminal fee, there is another stop where another officer called theInspector Verifier will cut off the stub from the receipt of the terminal fee. This is especially true in NAIA-3 and in the Mactan-Cebu International Airport.     Thursday, January 13, 2011, NAIA-3   8. Then, after this, there is another X-ray machine. In almost all of the most airports in the world, this is the only X-ray machine that checks the hand-carried baggage. Even in the very security-conscious United States, there is only one X-ray check, and that is right before the pre-departure area.   Thursday, January 13, 2011, PAL Centennial Airport   9. Then the final check right before boarding.   This can actually be reduced to only three stages: check-in, X-ray and body check prior to entering the pre-departure area, and then at the final boarding. This is the standard used by most airports. The process for international travel from the NAIA and PAL Centennial Airport is even worse because of the additional “checkpoints”:   1. Checking of boarding pass before entry into immigration area 2. Payment of an exorbitant terminal fee of PhP 750.00, or something like $13.45, as if people walk around with that exact change in their pockets. Worse, one cannot even pay with a credit card. 3. Immigration 4. Checking of boarding passes before being allowed to enter the pre-departure gate 5. Another check of baggage before boarding   In the international arrival area, despite the fact that we have nothing to declare, we are made to fill up a form. This is checked by the customs officer. A few meters after the customs officer, there is another person who takes some part of the stub. Also, we are the only airport that still checks on the bag tags by more security guards at the exit door.   Most of these are not only cumbersome and downright stupid procedures, but they also create an impression that we are just putting hoops to make it difficult for tourists. We also create meaningless jobs for unemployed protégés of politicians or bureaucrats who have nothing better to do. This is a waste of people’s hard-earned money.   We respectfully request that your good office take the initiative to review this process and streamline it with the end in view. These cumbersome and repetitious processes have not made our airport and air travel any more secure. As a matter of fact, notwithstanding all these, our airports have been downgraded for its lack of security. It is not the processes that needs strengthening, rather the management of our civil aviation systems. In the news recently was a disturbing piece of information: there was damage in some aviation equipment, and the replacement part had to be ‘cannibalized’ / removed from existing damaged aviation equipment.   One must ask: where is all the money collected from the terminal fees going? Is it paying the security guards and personnel who have been placed in our airports to make our lives and travel difficult? In almost all of the airports of the world, there is no “terminal fee” being collected. If there is any payment of terminal fees at all, it is incorporated in the ticket. Incidentally, and in this respect, may we respectfully request for a financial report from your good office as to the uses of the terminal fees collected from passengers in the last five years. Despite all the monies received, as of January 2011, none of the three airports in Manila had free and consistent wireless Internet access. The pre-departure area in NAIA-1 did not even have working electrical outlets. The restrooms are still small and badly maintained. The Mactan-Cebu Airport recently installed sensor-type flushing mechanisms in their water closets, a water-wasteful technology. When checked last January 22, 2011, none of them worked! We also do not have seats allocated for the handicapped in the pre-departure areas. In other international airports around the world, there are seats near the gates for the handicapped.   While other airports around the world try to institutionalize seamless airport procedures, we are overacting to try to create a perception of security. This is not a mark of our ability to put an effective security measures. Rather, it is a mark of idiotic redundancy, utter inefficiency, and senseless and useless red tape. We end up making ourselves look ridiculous. It creates the impression that we live in a garrison state, paranoid to the nth degree, and/or are promoting unnecessary red tape right in the gateways of our country. It is a poor reflection of our people. It is also an example of a very Third World mentality — the very impression we are trying to change as a country and as a people.   Having said all these, we do not need to wonder why we have few tourists compared to our neighboring Southeast Asian countries. We have a saying in Filipino, which, when translated, means that the most difficult people to awaken are those who are already awake. Our airport officials know how utterly ridiculous these procedures are, but refuse to improve it for reasons known only to them.   There are so many other things we need to improve to make our country travel-friendly, among them having clean toilets, honest cab drivers, and traffic decongestion. But if there is one area we can work on right away to make travel to and within the Philippines easy, convenient, passenger-visitor-friendly and seamless, it is our airports — the very face of our beautiful and beloved country.   Thank you in anticipation of your kind consideration and expeditious action on the matter as we look forward to your reply[1]. We trust that this letter finds you in good health and spirits as we again congratulate you, thank you, and wish you the best of luck in your efforts to improve our airports.

  MANILA, Philippines (UPDATED) - Here's some good news for avid travelers who have been wanting to visit the world-famous Angkor Wat, but are turned off by the thought of connecting flights and long travel hours by land. The Civil Aeronautics Board (CAB) recently approved direct flights from the Philippines to Cambodia, known for one of the most important archeological sites in Southeast Asia. CAB granted Cebu Pacific five frequencies for the Manila-Cambodia route, while ZestAir got two frequencies. Airphil Express, the budget carrier of Philippine Airlines, and AirAsia Philippines Inc. each received seven frequencies for the Clark-Cambodia route. One frequency is equivalent to a once-a-week flight. Cebu Pacific has not yet set a timetable for the new route. "But we will make announcements at the appropriate time," its vice president for marketing and distribution Candice Iyog said in a text message to abs-cbnNEWS.com. Previously, Filipino travelers had to go to major Southeast Asian cities -- Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok and Singapore -- to get flights to Siem Reap, the gateway to Cambodia's Angkor. A UNESCO world heritage site, Angkor is a region in Cambodia where over a thousand temples in ruins can be found. One of these temples is the magnificent Angkor Wat, said to be the world's largest single religious monument. A bit of trivia: Angkor Wat was used as the backdrop for some of the scenes of action movie Tomb Raider in 2001. Tomb Raider starred Angelina Jolie as video game heroine Lara Croft   source: http://www.abs-cbnnews.com/lifestyle/12/28/11/angkor-wat-now-just-flight-away-philippines

MANILA, Philippines - The government said Thursday it planned to catch corrupt officials in cyberspace by using sites such as Facebook and Twitter as forums for the public to report crimes. Finance Secretary Cesar Purisima said that his department would soon set up a website with the customs and tax bureaus through which people could anonymously tip off authorities about crimes such as smuggling and tax evasion. "It will be a website (with) integrated Facebook, Twitter and whatever social networking site there is. It will be reachable by SMS (short messaging service) also," Purisima told reporters. "This will allow people to maintain their anonymity in complaining or sending information to us." Purisima said he was inspired by a case in China where someone took a picture of a corrupt bureaucrat wearing an expensive Rolex watch and posted the picture on the Internet, leading to the prosecution of the official. He said that with so many Filipinos carrying camera-equipped mobile phones, it would be harder for smugglers, tax evaders and other criminals to hide evidence of their misdeeds. A common complaint among businessmen is that criminals with links to corrupt officials too easily get away with smuggling and tax evasion because people are too scared to report them.

MANILA, Philippines - The spokesperson of former President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo on Saturday criticized Malacañang for blaming the past administration for its policy decision to impose a 12% Value-Added Tax (VAT) on toll. Former Presidential Management Staff (PMS) chief Elena Bautista-Horn said the Arroyo administration had assessed the impact of imposing VAT on toll, and it found that it would have a major effect. Thus, the proposal was set aside and placed under review. "Tinalakay rin kay dating Pangulong Arroyo ang impact ng VAT sa toll sa mga gumagamit ng ating toll roads, at nakita nyang malaki ang epekto sa taong-bayan kaya't pina-aral pa nya itong muli," she said. (The impact of VAT on toll on toll road users was discussed with President Arroyo, and she found out that it would have a big impact on the people, so she asked that it be reviewed.) The Aquino government hopes to collect P1 billion monthly or P12 billion annually from the VAT on toll  to reduce the budget deficit. Bautista-Horn said there were also many legal, technical and operational issues that had to be settled first, but these were overtaken by the election of a new government. She said these legal and technical issues emerged again during the Senate hearing this week presided over by Senator Ralph Recto. "Hindi ipinatupad ng Arroyo administration ang VAT sa toll dahil lumabas lahat ang issues na tinalakay sa Senado at hindi pa nahanapan ng solusyon ang legal, technical and operational issues ng maabutan na ng change of administration," she said. She proposed that the Palace undertake staff work on the VAT before imposing it rather than blame the Arroyo administration. "Sana gumawa ang Malacañang ng staff work nila bago sila nagmadaling ipatupad ang VAT sa toll. Hindi maganda at tuwid na asal ang ibato sa nakaraang administration ang kakulangan ng nakaupong administration sa kanilang paggawa ng homework ," Bautista-Horn said. She also assailed the Aquino administration for its alleged style of shooting first before studying the issues and data. "Pero what's new? Kailangan masanay na tayo sa style ng Aquino administration na mambintang at manghusga bago pag-aralan ang mga datos at issues," she added. Bautista was reacting to President Benigno Aquino III's spokesman, Edwin Lacierda, who said that the present administration was just trying to push a law that was never implemented by the past administration. "Now that we are in the process of enforcing the law, kami ang nagmumukhang kontrabida. Ito ay nagmumukhang bagong buwis na sa totoo lang ay hindi po ito buwis. Meron na pong batas na in-issue ang Kongreso at base dun sa batas sa Kongreso, nag-isyu ng dalawang memorandum circular ang BIR sa panahon ni Ginang Arroyo na hindi nila inimplement," Lacierda said. Lacierda made the statement after the Supreme Court issued separate temporary restraining orders to stop the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) from imposing 12% VAT on toll and the 250% toll fee increase in the South Luzon Expressway. On Thursday, Malacañang insisted that it will push through with the imposition of VAT on toll fees despite warnings from its own allies in the Senate. Sen. Ralph Recto, chairman of the Senate ways and means committee, told the BIR that it cannot impose VAT on toll because providing roads, including expressways, is part of the compulsory government services to the public. Recto insisted that the toll fee itself is another form of tax, and that the government cannot impose tax on a tax. -- with a report from RG Cruz, ABS-CBN News

THE Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) replaced the brigade commander assigned in Claver, Surigao del Norte, after rebels attacked and destroyed billions of pesos worth of properties a few days ago. AFP Eastern Mindanao Command spokesman, Colonel Leopoldo Galon, said 402nd Brigade Commander Colonel Rodrigo Diapana was relieved last Wednesday; and was temporarily replaced by Colonel James Jacob. Have something to report? Tell us in text, photos or videos. Diapana's relief was ordered by AFP commander-in-chief President Benigno Simeon Aquino III, after failing to prevent the rebel attacks in two mining firms in Surigao. The AFP said "serious lapses" were committed on the field that allowed for the successful raid of the NPA and the burning of over P3 billion worth of mining equipment. "We will have to wait for the investigation report, but the fact remains that it happened in his area of responsibility," said AFP chief-of-staff Eduardo Oban Jr. Philippine National Police (PNP) chief Nicanor Bartolome earlier also relieved three police officials in the said province. Relieved were Senior Superintendent Emmanuel Talento, Surigao del Norte police provincial director; Superintendent Rudy Cuyop, Public Safety Battalion commander; and Claver town police chief Senior Inspector Diomedes Cuadra. Earlier, the PNP admitted there was a “security vacuum” at the time of the attacks, and no government forces were in the area at the time to thwart the “well-planned” rebel operation. "What we're saying here (is that) we lost our forces in the area, allowing them (rebels) to stage such an elaborate attack," said Chief Superintendent Agrimero Cruz Jr., PNP spokesman. Superintendent Martin Gamba, Caraga region police spokesman, admitted that, despite intelligence reports the NPA rebels were planning to attack, they did not anticipate that the mining firms would be the target - and chose to beef up police stations instead. In a statement, National Democratic Front of the Philippines - North Eastern Mindanao Region spokesperson, Maria Malaya, said the attack was in retaliation against the Manuel B. Zamora-led Taganito Mining Corporation (TMC), which the group alleged has "ravaged the area for nearly 30 years." Malaya added the attack was "in the implementation of the policy of the revolutionary movement related to the protection of the environment and natural resources and the defense of the rights of the Lumad people, peasants, and workers." "Instead of remitting P400 million in taxes to the [local government], through sheer bribery, the company is now only paying the local government P40 million. It is only right to punish this company," Malaya said. Around 200 to 300 rebels on Monday attacked Taganito Mining Corporation (TMC) in Claver town, resulting in the destruction of several facilities. Taganito is a unit of Nickel Asia Corp., which is partly owned by Japan's Sumitomo Metal Mining Co Ltd. Another group of rebels attacked the nearby Platinum Metals Group Corp. also in Claver. Three hours later, another mine site operated by another Taganito company, Taganito HPAL Corporation, was also attacked by rebels. The attack forced Nickel Asia to suspend its operations indefinitely. The military, however, said that one of the reasons of the attacks was the company's refusal to pay "revolutionary taxes" to the rebels.   source: http://www.sunstar.com.ph/davao/local-news/2011/10/07/army-chief-surigao-axed-after-rebel-attacks-183657

AUSTRALIAN miner Red 5 Ltd. has started with preparations for the construction of a process plant for its Siana gold project in Surigao del Norte. In a statement yesterday, the miner said it has started earthworks activities, or activities related to excavation or embankments, for the process plant in the site. The commencement of construction is due to the miner’s awarding of three major construction contracts worth $5.54 million.  Process plant earthworks contract, steelworks or steel construction and engineering contract, and a grid power contract have been awarded to three firms, Red 5 Ltd. said. The miner added that two other major contracts -- piping and electrical -- for the mining site will be signed within the month. Last December, Red 5 Ltd. raised $45 million in equity and secured a financing package of $40 million for the development of the Siana gold project. Red 5 Ltd. aims to produce over a million ounces of gold from the project, with the first gold pour expected in April 2011. The miner also operates the Mapawa gold-copper project, also located in Surigao del Norte.  Earlier drilling, which started in January, at the Mapawa site showed ores with 1.2 grams of gold per metric ton (MT) and 0.16% copper, and ores with 0.2 grams of gold per MT and 0.15% zinc. -- Kathleen A.

SURIGAO City--Former Surigao del Norte governor Robert Lyndon Barbers has hinted that he, his brother Robert Ace and ex-mayor Alfonso Casurra would be actively taking part in the elections here next year. His elder brother Robert Ace however opted to keep mum about his family's political plans. The younger Barbers, in an interview, confirmed that the "BBC"- -Barbers, Barbers and Casurra-- would play an active role here in the 2013 elections, short of confirming that he and the two other politicians would stage a comeback. "We are ready but it's still March. Many things can happen. We may run, we may not run," said Barbers lost in the 2010 mayoral race against Mayor Ernesto Matugas. Barbers said this after the citybased weekly Agusan-Surigao Enquirer quoted Jamar Gavino and former Association of Barangay Councils chairperson Reynaldo Ganto as announcing the that it was official that the "BBC" is joining the 2013 political race. Ex-mayor Casurra declined to comment. Barbers's elder brother Robert Ace, a former congressman, also declined to make an official statement but he said Gavino has been authorized to speak on his behalf. Robert Lyndon said the "BBC" can also be "PAL"--shor t for Pons (Casurra)-Ace (Barbers)-Lyndon (Barbers). He said Casurra may run for congressman, Robert Ace for governor and he could seek the mayoral post again under the Nationalista Party. The ex-governor said his group would make an official announcement anytime soon. Barbers said he welcomed Gavino's pronouncements but added that "if ever there will be a final decision, it will be because it is the clamor of the people." Meanwhile, Padajon Surigao provincial coordinator Bobong Eupena said the Barbers' group has weakened and only has the support of only two barangay chairpersons. Padajon Surigao is the local political party of the Matugases and Romarates of Surigao del Norte.

  0digg Supermodel of the World is an international supermodel contest hosted by Ford Models which invites young aspiring fashion models from over 50 countries to find new talent for the industry. While past winners have been predominately from Caucasian countries, the past few years have seen girls from Asian countries—South Korea in 2008 and the Philippines in 2011—come out on top. Recently, China seems to have found a new talent who may be good enough to become the first model from the country to take the title. However, in addition to her beauty, there are two things about this newcomer that have made her a hot topic in China: one, she is Tibetan, and two,—brace yourself—she is only 14 years old. Her name is M?iqí Su?l?ng (????), though she also goes by the English pseudonym ‘Jessica,’ and at 172cm tall with perfect proportions and stunning features, it’s only reasonable to think that she was born to be a supermodel. While Japanese model Masako Mizutani has been getting attention for looking 20 years under her age, 14-year-old M?iqí’s modeling photos make her look at least 5 years older. M?iqí has participated in modeling contests while attending a public middle school since she was 13. On her profile, she comments: “My mom and dad back me up on whatever I want to do. They’re always supporting me.” M?iqí doesn’t seem to fuss much about contest results: “I only care about showing people my best performance.” We hope that her best performance is enough to get her some international recognition: winners of the Supermodel of the World competition receive a $250,000 modeling contract with Ford Models, and surely even China would celebrate her Tibetan background if she gained some recognition for the country’s modeling industry. In any case, we’re looking forward to seeing more of her in the future! Check below for more of M?iqí’s photos.

  World's best junior surfers took to the Cloud 9 lineup from September 21 to 28 as Billabong and the Provincial Government of Surigao del Norte in cooperation with the Local Government of General Luna, Philippine Surfing Federation and the Department of Tourism, led the staging of the Billabong Pro Junior Asia at Cloud 9. Cloud 9 finally carved its name in the world's surfing map as 64 best junior surfers from Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Tahiti, Philippines,United States of America and Indonesia joined in this year's launching of Billabong's pro junior event. Eleven Filipino surfers were given the chance to be in the line up --- Mark Canon, Keong Catulay, Philmar Alipayo, Bebot Catulay, Mike Escultora, Peter Alipayo, Glenn Figuron, Danny Coldura, JR Esquivel, John Paul Alipayo and John Mark "Marama" Tokong.All these junior surfers are from Siargao except for JR Esquivel who is from La Union and who recently signed up as Billabong endorser in the Philippines. In the Round 2 of the contest, four Filipinos made it, namely: Keong Catulay, John Paul Alipayo, John Mark Tokong, and Philmar Alimar. As as the contest advanced to Round 3, only the two Alipayo's (John Paul and Philmar) made it to Round 3. In the one-on-one heat of Round 3, between Alex Dive of New Zealand and Philmar Alipayo, Philmar beat Alex and Philmar. Philmar became the only Filipino who advanced for the Semifinals of this Billabong pro junior event. He finished equal 5th place and takes home $1,900 USD. Cooper Chapman, a professional surfer from Australia, took out the inaugural Billabong Pro Junior Asia title in an action packed Finals over an Indonesian surfer Oney Anwar last September 27, 2011 at "Cloud 8", a new spot identified by the technical team of Association of Surfing Professionals or ASP. With a new swell coming in from a different direction, the competition at Cloud 9 was forced to move down the reef to a spot referred to as Cloud 8.

MANILA, Philippines - Vice-President Jejomar Binay apologized to the public after his convoy beat a red light on Monday despite President Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino III's call for government officials not to abuse their power by strictly following traffic rules. In a statement issued Tuesday, Binay's spokesman, Joey Salgado, blamed Binay's security escorts for the incident. The convoy beat the red light on Araneta Avenue in Quezon City on Monday morning. Binay had just come from a meeting with former Vice-President Teofisto Guingona and was returning to the Office of the Vice President in Pasay City. Salgado said Binay apologizes to all motorists who were "inconvenienced" because of the incident. He said Binay has reminded his security escorts to strictly follow traffic rules. Binay's spokesman added that the vice-president's head of security, Ferdinand Fraginal, also reprimanded the escorts for beating the red light. Asked for comment on Binay convoy's beating the red light, presidential spokesman Edwin Lacierda said he’d rather let the vice-president address the issue. In his inaugural speech, President Aquino assured the public that there will be no abusive public officials under his administration. He also said public officials should stop using sirens and blinkers and follow traffic rules. Binay has said that public officials should still be allowed to use sirens and blinkers during emergencies, including during incidents of fire in their respective localities. President Aquino has waived his right to use sirens and blinkers. His presidential convoy also follows traffic lights despite the security risks. Aquino has urged the vice president, Senate president, House speaker and chief justice to join him in waiving their right to use sirens and blinkers. Under Presidential Decree 96, only motor vehicles designated for the use of the Philippine National Police, Armed Forces of the Philippines, National Bureau of Investigation, Land Transportation Office, Bureau of Fire Protection, and hospital ambulances can be fitted with sirens, bells, horns or similar gadgets.

Under Presidential Decree 96, only motor vehicles designated for the use of the Philippine National Police, Armed Forces of the Philippines, National Bureau of Investigation, Land Transportation Office, Bureau of Fire Protection, and hospital ambulances can be fitted with sirens, bells, horns or similar gadgets. In addition, only the president, vice president, Senate president, House speaker, and chief justice are allowed to use vehicles with these devices. Binay earlier said public officials should not be totally banned from using sirens to get through of heavy traffic. As a former Makati City mayor, he said he normally used sirens to be able to immediately respond to an emergency. Binay said the problem lies with private car owners who abuse the use of sirens and blinkers.

Surigao News/Local News
Author:Jake Miranda
Not too long ago somebody bought several wetsuits from my diveshop in Surigao City. I had a sense they were not recreational divers since they only paid for the wetsuits first and then asked what the regulators and tanks on display were for. It was an unconventional question since divers who come into the shop would usually be knowledgeable about standard diving equipment unless they were beginners who would come in for lessons. I met them again a few months later in a hospital emergency room when they brought in a fisherman who was suffering from a mortal case of the “bends”. The "bends" or decompression sickness is a consequence of breathing air underwater; it builds up all excess nitrogen in your bodily tissues that cannot escape due to the pressure and act like mini-explosive bubbles if you surface too quickly from large depths. The fisherman was diving the day before using a “hookah” (air fed from an onboard compressor) or what is locally known as “boso.” The patient died after a week of futile recovery. He was too fragile to transport to the nearest recompression chamber. His family could only accept his fate. It was only then that I started to ask questions about what happened. Here was a small-time operation of five local divers and five more boatmen harvesting black coral trees from depths beyond 40 meters. A Chinese businessman based in the city was aggressively buying their corals. In a month, these divers could harvest close to 100 trees weighing 500 kilos, and sell these at P100 a kilo to the buyer. Fifty thousand pesos a month fed their ten families. I asked them about their diving profiles, how deep they went and how long they stayed in the water. I was shocked to find out that they would go to thirty “dupa” or a 150 feet in a heartbeat. The “dupa” is the local unit of measure used by fishermen when letting out fishing lines; one “dupa” is roughly two arms length or five feet. At a depth of 150 feet they would stay for as long as 30 minutes. If they found black coral they would strain themselves as they hammer these out from its perch. The fishermen would then raise the coral by tying these to buoys filled with air. More shockingly so was they would surface as fast as the buoys. This was not the end of it. The fishermen would dive three to four times a day sometimes with less than an hour’s interval between the dives! Working laboriously in such depths increases the risks of suffering from the bends. The US Navy dive tables which lay out the safety standards of diving allow only about a minute at 150 feet before being required to rise to a shallower depth to decompress. After hearing such appalling stories I brought in my resident divemaster and we talked to the group about safer diving practices including the proper way to surface hoping we could help them avoid another accident. Soon after I met the Chinese businessman. Let’s name him Jacky. He looked remorseful of the fate met by one his divers. He even paid for all medical expenses and gave the bereaved wife some money. But weeks later Jacky bought more wetsuits, and ordered a couple of dive watches. He introduced me to two “cousins” who were certified divers. Then he was soon asking me if I knew of other areas where black coral could be found in shallower waters. I feigned interest and asked my own questions. He showed me where he stored all the black coral in a vacant lot in Surigao City. He then told me he was selling all his black coral to Davao City where somebody else would ship these out to Manila. There were several supply lines. He repeatedly mentioned Bohol and Cebu. Ultimately the black coral would all land in China. I soon learned that the demand for black coral was greatest in the North American and European markets. China was the jeweler. The Philippines and other countries around us are the farms. The value of the black coral is in the density of its trunk and thicker branches (after decades of slow growth) as these can be made in ornamental jewelry and even smoking pipes. It was only then that Jacky asked me if it was illegal to get black coral. I really didn’t know what to say because I did not know the answer. After some research, I had to show him the Fisheries Code where it was written that black coral was one of the prohibited coral species for trade. It turned out that black coral from the Philippines was being harvested and exported since the 1960s. As I wanted to help him and his divers get out of this business, I offered to assist them in going to fish trading instead. I brought Jacky to the local fish buyers and I was delighted to see him become interested with this new business. Jacky soon started buying lapu-lapu fish and sea cucumbers. There was less money to be made but at least it was legal and safer for the fishermen. I last heard that his divers have demanded he goes back to the black coral business because of the drastic change in income. I haven’t seen Jacky for a while but I will ask him again to stop. I don’t believe in having him and his divers apprehended now as they would have little effect on the outbound supply line. I would rather have the main exporter and the customs officials in cahoots as the ones to be investigated. Reading the newspapers today I beg to disagree that the recent discovery of 21,000 pieces of black coral were all from Cotabato province. Black coral are quite rare, few to find and grow only in deep water. One hectare of coral reef in my estimate would have as few as five trees and there are rarer numbers in the common seabed. Sometimes they are perched on rocky outcrops of walls, and in deeper water they lie like lone bushes in a wide sandy desert. The worst part is there are several classes of black coral that are brought up by divers. Out of three trees only one gets to pass the standard of the buyer. There wasn’t just 21,000 but perhaps more than 60,000 trees brought up from the sea. Sixty thousand black corals could have come from all the coastal reefs of Mindanao and the Visayas. Cotabato was just the shipping point. Originally, I had grandeur dreams of pursuing this lead and making a video documentary to show on National Geographic. I may do that still with all the interest black coral is getting nowadays. I wrote Lory Tan of WWF Philippines about all this and received helpful advice on where to go with this story. But right now I remain curious. The answers I seek lie underwater. As I dive deep I would just look for the black coral trees and spend a few minutes in both awe and pity. Like coral reefs in shallower waters, black coral provides shelter, act as feeding and breeding grounds for deep sea fish species and their prey, seriously contributing to our fish stocks. Black corals thrive on organic matter that sinks from the ocean's surface, filtering the water clear. They actually appear green underwater with whitish and feathery branches while still alive and rooted. They turn brown as they are brought to the surface probably due to the change in pressure and temperature. They turn black only when they are completely dried in the sun. The black coral tree is similar to the narra of our rainforests topside. Both grow painfully slow, are considered prohibited for trade, but are wantonly harvested. As published on the internet scientists have confirmed that black corals are the slowest growing deep-sea corals. They grow 8 to 22 micrometers per year as compared to the shallow-water reef-building coral, typically found in tropical areas which grows about 1 centimer per year, or 65 times as fast as black coral. Human fingernails could even grow about 3 centimeters per year, or 200 times faster than black coral! Unfortunately, the poverty in the countryside and the greed of the commerce combine to give the slow-growing black coral little chance to survive. It is ironic that a small bush of a tree that unassumingly lies silent fathoms deep in our seas is now haunting our national conscience. Why have we not protected it zealously in the past? What protection can we offer in the future? And what can we do for the rest of our marine resources? This haunting tree, blackened in its death, may be the one that, hopefully in its infamy, can bring back life to our seas.

Travel/Where To Stay
Author:SMP
      Mabuhay! Welcome to the Boardwalk Cloud 9 Resort, Siargao Island, Philippines. We hope you find all the information you need here about your vacation to our wonderful island. We have recently undergone some major changes here at Boardwalk Cloud 9 Resort and look forward to your visit. My name is Andrew Bickell and I operate this resort with my wife Rhoda. With our young family we reside onsite at the resort and offer our guests 24hr service. We believe that when you holiday at our Boardwalk Cloud 9 Resort you should have all of our resources at your disposal. Our local knowledge and connections will allow you to experience a vacation like no other. Our philosophy is to offer the guests a memorable holiday in which they will look back and realize that things can be done a little differently. We try to encourage our guests to make this your home away from home. If you have any specific needs or requests we will do our best to meet those needs. With every guest we have, we hope that a new friend is made. We do what we can to encourage our guests to protect the island while visiting. The local people are beautiful people and we encourage them to help protect the wonderful resource that is their home. The local economy relies on the small amount of tourists that visit the island. So be adventurous and get out there and enjoy yourself. In the words of a good friend of ours "My pleasure is other people's leisure"... (I think he stole that line from a movie).   BOAT TRIPS Organize a banka boat and driver for the day to take you around the island sites. The experience of seeing this region from a boat is truly breath-taking. In addition, there are several rivers and huge sections of mangroves that are amazingly rich areas of biodiversity and natural beauty. You will have the chance to stop and swim whenever the mood strikes you. These trips are a relaxing and informative way to view the stunning beauty of Siargao and the many surrounding islands. The surrounding islands are Naked Island, Dako Island and Guyam Island. All close by and can be explored on a day trip with an ice-box full of cold drinks. SOHOTON LAGOON You must make a full day boat trip to Sohoton Lagoon. It’s a magical place, overhung by jungle cliffs, where you can swim into caves with bats, strange fish, stalactites and rock oysters, and see weird corals, pitcher plants, cycads and wild orchids. You must go when the tide is low during mid-day – the only entrance to the lagoon is through a natural cave tunnel, hanging with stalactites, and with a strong current. The cost of the trip varies; just ask Andrew or Rhoda for the best price offered. No commissions are charged by Boardwalk Cloud 9 Resort, what it costs will be what you pay. MAGPAPONKO SWIMMING HOLE Situated near the town of Pilar about a 20 minute boat ride from Boardwalk at Cloud 9 Resort. It's a great place to spend a few hours in the sun and salt water. Magpaponko is only exposed at low tide and the waters are washed out and replaced daily by the incoming tide leaving it a beautiful and clean place to swim. SUP (STAND-UP PADDLE BOARD) TOURS We have 9 SUP Boards available for hire on either day trips around the calmer waters, or for the more experienced you can take one out to a more gentle breaking wave. Tours can be organised in conjunction with our kayak tours to the other side of the island through the mangroves and around the coral lagoons. KAYAK TOURS You can pack a lunch and explore the harder to get to places on our kayaks. Our Kayaks have dry-storage and fishing rod holders so you can troll through the mangroves while taking in this untouched part of Siargao Island. After lunch paddle out to on of the numerous coral bombies and strap on the snorkel. It is a full day and a wonderful way to see parts of the island you never would otherwise get the chance to see. Please remember, we try our best to keep things as we found them. KITEBOARDING Our resident expert, Kyron, will be offering Kite-boarding lessons. This will be subject to the weather (of course) and limited to a maximum number of 2 people. DIVING & SNORKELLING There's plenty to see (fish, corals, sea snakes, etc, but no big sharks unless you go out far in depth of the Pacific) snorkelling on the reefs around Guyam and Dako. Around Nked Island the coral reefs are great (even better at night time) and you can explore reefs in front of Tuason Point (but please not under the break itself), and in La Janosa and Mamon. A huge underwater cave with four to five separate entrances was recently discovered under the first rock islands in front of Tuason, and the Blue Cathedral just off Caridad, north of Pilar. Underwater visibility for photography is outstanding. Snorkeling and diving gear is available. FISHING Deep-sea fishing is top notch here. The sailfish and blue marlin season, really hums from March to early May, when the big fish (sailfish to 40kg, marlin to 200kg) cruise the deep water only a mile or two out of General Luna. But you could fish for coral trout, large snappers and other reef fish anytime. There is an aluminum, centre consol fishing boat is available for day trips or you can join local fisherman for a one day or even a two day/one night fishing adventure. Go out and troll for bolis (skipjack) or Barilis (yellow fin tuna). You can catch Tanguigue (Spanish mackerel), huge Pacific Tuna, and Morang (dolphinfish).
