        "body": "BAGUIO CITY -- A new acting superintendent of the Philippine Military Academy (PMA) will be greeting 350 freshmen cadets during their reception rites tentatively scheduled on July 1.\n\nAir Force Brig. Gen. Julius Tomines, currently the commandant of cadet of the country's premier military school, accepted the responsibility of acting PMA superintendent from Air Force Lt. Gen. Ferdinand Cartujano in a turnover ceremony officiated by Armed Forces Chief of Staff Gen. Andres Centino on Sunday.\n\nCartujano, a member of PMA \"Maringal\" Class of 1988, retired on Sunday when he turned 56 years old.\n\nTomines, a 1992 graduate of the United States Military Academy in West Point, New York, credited his predecessor for ensuring that everyone at the PMA was vaccinated given that the coronavirus pandemic still rages for the third year. The academy imposed a lockdown in February 2020 to spare its cadets from COVID-19 infection, which was lifted in March this year.\n\nVaccines were also made available for convicts who are about to be freed for good behavior. Called \"insular prisoners,\" these persons deprived of liberty are loaned out to the PMA to serve as handymen and gardeners.\n\nTomines, who will still serve concurrently as commandant of cadets, will take charge of new cadets who will compose PMA Class of 2026 when they enter Fort Del Pilar here next month. They would be the third set of cadets to be accepted in the academy during the pandemic.\n\nCentino, also a member of the Maringal Class, lauded Cartujano for spearheading measures to stop hazing in the academy.\n\nHe said Cartujano's initiatives have been \"highlighting PMA's genuine commitment to eliminate hazing in the Cadet Corps in order to preserve PMA's image as the bastion of learning and character development.\"\n\nBefore the pandemic, PMA was enveloped in controversy due to the Sept. 18, 2019, hazing death of Cadet Fourth Class Darwin Dormitorio, for which several senior cadets were charged for murder.\n\nAddressing the cadets for the first time since he was appointed chief of staff, Centino described them as \"the most fortunate young Filipinos who are being accorded [a] three-to-four year education and guaranteed employment after graduation.\"",

But for below middle class, the poor, yes,\" Tulfo said in his first-ever press conference in the Senate.\n\n\"For the middle class, for me, in my humble opinion, right now, without still looking at the facts and figures, I don't think so,\" he added.\n\nThe broadcaster-turned-lawmaker expressed his belief that middle-income families can still bear the impact of the inflation compared to those who are earning a minimum wage.\n\n\"They can still afford to buy since they belong in the middle class. They receive at least above minimum wage. So we should prioritize those earning minimum wages or lower,\" he said.\n\n\"The government should target giving aid to those under the poverty line. The middle class can take care of themselves,\" he added.\n\nThe statement came after Bagong Henerasyon Partylist Rep. Bernadette Herrera proposed rice subsidy of 10 to 50 kilos for poor to middle-income households as the depreciation of the Philippine peso could lead to higher prices of goods and services and overall inflation.\n\n'Power outages, system loss'\n\nTulfo, who is poised to chair the Senate Committee on Energy in the upcoming 19th Congress, said he would prioritize the problems in power outages and system loss in the country.",

It is submitted to the PCG station commander of the area where the accident occurred or of the first immediate \"port of call,\" or a place where a ship stops on a voyage.\n\nMBCA Mama Mary Chloe, which had 157 passengers and eight crew members, sank on Sunday after it caught fire while traveling from Ubay to Bato town in Leyte province. The vessel, which left the Ubay port at 11:30 a.m. on Sunday, was in the waters off Gaus Island and Tugas Island of President Carlos P. Garcia town when it caught fire at around 1 p.m.\n\nThe boat had a maximum capacity of 236 persons and owned by Boholana Neri Obligado.\n\nThe lone fatality was identified as Adolfo Rañola, a 53-year-old resident of Trinidad, Bohol.\n\nAnother passenger, Andy Tuñacao, 32, of Barangay San Juan in Hilongos, Leyte, was earlier reported missing but was found alive in Hilongos.\n\n\"No more missing. Lahat accounted na (All were accounted for),\" Cundag said.\n\nAccording to Cundag, Tuñacao was one of the 99 rescued passengers who were brought to Hilongos but he immediately went home and forgot to have himself listed as one of the survivors.",

        "body": "Philippine Sports Commission Chair (PSC) William \"Butch\" Ramirez said on Monday that he is willing to go through another six years in his office if entrusted with the job by the incoming administration.\n\n\"It's really time to go,\" Ramirez said as he led the PSC's flag-raising ceremony one last time on Monday. \"But without pretensions, if the [new] president and the executive secretary offer me the position to be retained, I'll be honored to accept it.''\n\nCombining political and financial acuity with his affinity for athletes, Ramirez turned the PSC into one of the vital cogs that led to the Philippines ending its near-century gold medal drought in the Olympics via Hidilyn Diaz's victory in Tokyo last year. He had a solid set of commissioners who performed their tasks mostly under the limelight: basketball legend Ramon Fernandez, Charles Maxey, Celia Kiram and Arnold Agustin.\n\nAnd he wants a shot at making sure the gains made under the latest of his two terms at the helm of the sports funding agency won't go to waste.\n\n\"[G]iven the opportunity to serve again by the president for the country, I will run Philippine sports more efficiently,'' said Ramirez, who served as PSC chair under the administrations of President Duterte and Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo.\n\nHis name, an Inquirer source said, was among those forwarded to President-elect Ferdinand Marcos Jr. and Executive Secretary Vic Rodriguez.\n\n\"We are prepared to brief the incoming chairman and board of the PSC and ready for the transition,'' said Ramirez, who will officially step down as chief of the government sports agency on Thursday during the inauguration of President Marcos.\n\nIn his latest six-year term as PSC chief, Ramirez also took on lesser heralded yet meaningful projects like the PSC Children's Games, which earned plaudits from the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization.

        "title": "What's the BSP doing? | Inquirer Opinion",
        "body": "The Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) has been criticized -- wrongly, I think -- for being \"dovish,\" \"behind the curve,\" or not acting fast enough in response to speeding inflation and exchange rate movements. It seems to me that economists (as against financial analysts) tend to better understand the BSP's moves, especially as its top leaders in the governor, deputy governor, and Monetary Board positions have increasingly been drawn from professional economists.\n\nBankers used to be favored to head the country's central bank and serve in the Monetary Board, seemingly on the misplaced notion that the job is mainly about supervising and regulating the country's banks. But monetary policy -- the decision on how much money should circulate in the economy -- is too complex to entrust to bankers, unless they are also well-grounded in economics. The economy has so many interlinked moving parts, and the central bank's monetary policies are far-reaching and complex. That is why the chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank of the United States is consistently drawn from the economics, not banking, profession.\n\nIt is, thus, welcome news that BSP Governor Ben Diokno, who will soon become secretary of finance, will be replaced by Dr. Felipe Medalla, another competent economist who has served in the Monetary Board for over a decade. Like Diokno, he is a Ph.D. economist, and was my immediate successor as head of the National Economic and Development Authority in 1998, which makes him a truly seasoned economic policymaker. He well understands the delicate balancing act the BSP constantly does to keep prices stable, sustain growth in jobs and incomes in the economy, and ensure a strong financial system. Medalla has already given us a foretaste of his monetary policy perspective in a recent interview, where he declared: \"What we care [more] about is Philippine inflation, not the exchange rate.\" He certainly doesn't mean that the exchange rate is unimportant, but points out that like other central banks worldwide, BSP's primary focus is on managing inflation. But he also understands that a depreciating peso is not necessarily bad.\n\nEconomists like me constantly challenge tempering the expansive notion that having a \"strong\" peso (or a low peso-dollar exchange rate) is a good thing. It benefits some but likely hurts more. Obvious gainers are consumers of imports and import-dependent products, as the peso cost of imports falls. For Filipino tourists, it gets cheaper to visit Hongkong Disneyland than, say, Bohol or Boracay. Our investors also find it cheaper to invest (and create jobs) abroad rather than here at home. Also, winners are those who must pay back foreign loans, including the government itself, but it also faces lower peso revenues from import duty collections (I've been told before that the effect is largely neutral for the government).\n\nWhat about a depreciated peso? (I studiously avoid using \"weak\" or \"strong\" to describe a currency precisely because of the misleading connotation.) Winners include producers, especially exporters, who get more pesos for every export dollar earned. But not only exporters and their workers win; it also helps those selling domestically as competing imports get more costly. Foreign tourists find it more attractive to visit us while our own tourists must spend more to go abroad, thereby helping our tourism sector. Foreign investors also find it cheaper to invest here, especially in export-oriented ventures, while it gets costlier for Filipinos to invest and bring jobs abroad. In the end, our job-hungry workers are winners, not to mention families of our overseas workers, whose remittances convert into more pesos than before -- and this goes on to benefit the sellers of the goods and services they buy.\n\nAnalysts have long pointed out, in fact, that the most successful exporter countries around us deliberately undervalued their currencies as a strategy and policy for decades. With our long history of an overvalued peso, it should surprise no one that we lag pathetically behind our neighbors in exports and tourism.",

        "title": "Gilas Pilipinas U16 squad makes waves in Asian tourney | Inquirer Sports",
        "body": "As far as Patrick Aquino is concerned, the Gilas Pilipinas women's team competing in the Fiba U16 Women's Asian Championship Division B has not accomplished anything yet.\n\n\"There's still two games to play,\" he told the Inquirer on Monday via a phone call from Amman, Jordan, where the tournament is being held.\n\nThe team completed a sweep of Group A with a 94-65 rout of Samoa at Prince Hamza Hall late Sunday night -- a big night for Filipino women after a thrilling win by the national footballers over Bosnia and Herzegovina in Brezice, Slovenia (See related story on this page). The Gilas Women booked an outright semifinal spot where they could have a rematch against Samoa or face dangerous Kazakhstan.\n\nBut even the director of the national women's program understands that whatever happens from this point onward in the tournament, the current squad represents something special for the sport.\n\n\"This is practically a core for the future of the women's program,\" Aquino, also the architect of a dominant National University run in UAAP women's basketball, said. \"The girls based abroad, they're in a U16 team so obviously by having their passports at that age, we no longer foresee any problem for them to represent the country in the future.\"\n\nPlaying far from the spotlight generally reserved for the sport, the young Gilas women have been dominant, with only a 92-86 victory over Syria -- a game where the team led in double figures -- ending with a close margin. The Philippines also routed Indonesia, 104-68.\n\nKristan Yumul and Gabriella Ramos have been spectacular for the U16 squad. Yumul is averaging a team-best 25 points per game, torching opponents from beyond the arc, where she is hitting nearly half her shots so far (20 of 41, 48.8 percent). Ramos, meanwhile, is averaging a monster double-double of 17.3 points and 14.7 rebounds so far.\n\n\"Kristan, she's really a knock-down shooter. Her demeanor is so calm and coaches have been saying she's like [former PBA Most Valuable Player] James Yap. Gabbie, on the other hand, works really hard,\" Aquino said.\n\n\"Everyone has been making big contributions in their way,\" Aquino said.\n\nPlaymaker Natalie Panganiban (14 ppg, 7.0 rpg, 6.0 apg) and center Samantha Medina (7.3 ppg, 7.0 rpg) have come up huge in the tournament for the Philippines under coach Brian Rosario and his deputies, Julie Amos and Mark Solano.\n\nAnd Aquino isn't the bit surprised.\n\n\"I was really optimistic about this squad,\" he said. \"Of course, coming from the last time we competed here in 2009, I always knew that our opponents would be bigger and really physical. But I knew this team was talented enough to compete.\"\n\nAnd Aquino wants the Filipino girls to compete hard until the very end.\n\n\"All we have right now is a great start,\" he said. \"We're hoping the team can finish stronger.\"\n\nNo matter what the ending will be, however, the team has proven it can serve as a solid foundation for a revitalized program, one that has ruled the last two Southeast Asian Games after being dominated by regional rivals in the past.

        "body": "Former Foreign Affairs Secretary Albert del Rosario on Monday lauded the Philippine government's decision to uphold the country's sovereignty in the West Philippine Sea (WPS) while finding new energy sources.\n\nIn a statement, Del Rosario said he appreciated the remarks made by Foreign Affairs Secretary Teodoro Locsin Jr. during the celebration of Department of Foreign Affairs 124th Founding Anniversary.\n\n\"In doing so, we appreciate Secretary Locsin's words that \"in upholding the rule of law and not of might as the way forward, we've held on to United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea and the 2016 arbitral award. They are the twin anchors of the Philippine position on the West Philippine and South China Seas,\" he said.\n\nHe added that the country will need new energy sources to support the livelihood of our countrymen, saying that the country cannot afford to import its energy requirements from other countries.\n\nDel Rosario also calls for the incoming administration to appoint energy and foreign affairs officials who are upright and patriotic and having also the talent and skill who have ways to secure new energy sources needed while upholding the country's sovereign rights.\n\n\"We respectfully submit that the incoming administration of President-elect Ferdinand Marcos Jr. has a challenging task ahead: to appoint upright and patriotic officials in energy and foreign affairs who have the talent and skill to find ways to secure new energy sources needed by our country, while steadfastly upholding our sovereign rights in the West Philippine Sea, as guaranteed by international law and our Constitution,\" he ended.\n\nMeanwhile, fishers' group Pambansang Lakas ng Kilusang Mamalakaya ng Pilipinas (PAMALAKAYA) also called on the incoming Marcos administration to \"permanently shelve\" the joint exploration talks with China.\n\nPAMALAKAYA national chairperson Fernando Hicap said that Marcos must already have guiding principles for facing threats to the country's national sovereignty and territorial integrity.\n\n\"Marcos Jr. must already have a guiding principle on how to peacefully and diplomatically face this threat to our national sovereignty and territorial integrity,\" Hicap said.",

        "body": "ORMOC CITY -- Residents of the city packed the public plaza and its nearby streets Sunday night as the weeklong Piña Festival opened for the first time in two years after being postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.\n\nThe festival -- which celebrates the city's pineapple harvest and honors its patron protectors, Saints Peter and Paul -- kicked off with a parade of Piña Festival queens and a grand fireworks display.\n\nSpectators, including children, stood in awe as eight floats designed with pineapple bannered the Piña Festival's chant along the parade route.\n\nActor-singer KD Estrada and comedienne Kakai Bautista also serenaded the crowd at the opening salvo of the festivities.\n\nThe police were deployed in the area to ensure peace and order and the public's compliance with minimum health protocols for the event.\n\nMayor Richard Gomez, who was recently elected as Leyte 4th District representative, said he had permitted the festival's resumption this year because of the low-risk Covid-19 situation in the city.\n\n\"I agreed to do this now because we've had no Covid case here for the past four weeks,\" Gomez said.\n\nThe local government also wanted to promote the Ormoc Queen pineapple variety, which they believe is among the sweetest in the world. Pineapple is Ormoc's second top agricultural produce after sugarcane.\n\n\"It helps a lot of our farmers here,\" he said. \"Our local industry is getting big already. We want to make it bigger, but businesses were shut down at the height of the pandemic and we want to strengthen it again.\"\n\nAbout 500 hectares of the city's 61,360 hectares are devoted to pineapple farming, the actor-turned-politician said. These plantations are primarily owned by three well-known families, including the Larrazabal clan.\n\nMore than 100 tons of pineapple is produced every year from these plantations.",
