    Barangay Macabalan is considered to be one of the most densely populated areas of the city. Per 2022 census, it is the home of 19,562 people, about 2.69% of the 728,402 total population of Cagayan de Oro. Being geographically situated at the farthest end of northern Cagayan de Oro, portions of Barangay Macabalan has been experiencing low pressure to no water supply on a daily basis.

    Although several technical investigations in the said barangay indicate that various areas yield varied yet generally low water pressure readings, they are still in stark contrast with the average normal water pressure of approximately 10psi per service connection. Said low pressure in the area could be largely attributed to the fact that existing pipelines and service connections thereat are essentially aged, thus, very susceptible to clogging and leakages.

    COWD, in its intent to augment the water supply pressure in the area, started the installation of 150mm diameter uPVC Distribution Pipeline along the stretch of Macabalan-Puntod boundary area early this January 2023. This project component amounting to Two Million Pesos estimated cost is part of COWD’s Non-Revenue Water (NRW) Reduction Program. When completed by April 2023, this project is expected to eventually improve water pressure in the area.

    Moreover, said project includes installation of 16 units meter stub-outs (MSO) such that individual service connections whose water meters and pipelines are so-called aged, shall be transferred and rehabilitated. One (1) MSO holds about 20 water meters hence, 16 MSO shall accommodate 320 service connections as beneficiaries.

    Another project component is the proposed pipeline rehabilitation at Piaping Puti Macabalan with an approved budget of P6.5M to be implemented within the period of January to June of 2023.

    On top of these two (2) COWD projects is the major pipeline rehabilitation of Barangay Macabalan which includes construction of District Metered Areas (DMA), Distribution Pipeline replacement, installation of MSO, transfer of old single connections to new MSO. Said major project has an estimated cost of Ninety-Four Million Pesos and shall be implemented by phases from 2023 to 2026.




    CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY – With the newly acquired License to Operate (LTO) from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), SG Business Ventures Inc., a woman-led enterprise, is now eyeing more business opportunities, including expansion of their e-nutribun production in more parts of Cagayan de Oro City and in neighboring cities and provinces.

    The firm received the License to Operate, through the consultancy services of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST). This support included a writeshop on documentation for current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP), and quality Standard Sanitation Operating policies, plans and procedures (SSOPs). These documents are among the major requirements of the FDA.

    In order to track its progress in putting its GMP and SOP guidelines into practice, the firm was also enrolled in the Manufacturing Productivity Extension (MPEX) Program on which the firm received consultancy services from experts in having a standardized production process. DOST also helped the firm in obtaining its approved Trademark for the Bake O’ Clock logo. SGBVInc is also a recipient of the UV Light Germicidal Sterilizer from DOST to ensure the quality of products and a safe place for workers.

    SG Business Ventures Inc. was also one of the finalists of the DOST-FIC Mind to Market Program on Banana Flour concept as a substitute for wheat flour on select pastry products. Its Utility Model Application is also currently being processed. The firm is a beneficiary of the Small Enterprise Technology Upgrading Program of DOST in 2020. Through the program, the firm was able to acquire numerous food-grade equipment for their pastries and for the adoption of DOST Food and Nutrition Research Institute (FNRI)’s technology, the enhanced nutribun.

    The firm has supplied ENutribun to the National Nutrition Council (NNC) on their Tutok Kainan Feeding Program for Pregnant Women for the select municipalities in the province of Bukidnon. It also supplied ENutribun to the Province of Misamis Oriental for the Feeding Program of Pregnant Women in all the municipalities as well as supplying the demand of the Department of Education. SGBVInc. is now reaping the benefits of various DOST’s technical assistance and as a technology licensee in terms of increase in gross sales.

    In a message, owner, Agnes Gonzales, expressed her thanks to the SETUP program that sustained their business even with the pandemic. “I believe that we have grown from our humble beginning of just one store to now four stores including a separate area for our Enhanced nutribun production site. Sales and productivity have significantly increased, thereby creating more jobs for the community in Barangays Indahag, Macasandig and Carmen areas. Thank you so much DOST, you have helped us sustain our business. We are forever grateful”, she said.

    The FDA LTO is a license which must be secured in order for an establishment to manufacture, import, export, sell, and distribute food, medicines, cosmetics, health items, and other medical equipment. (Raziel Antoniette Bayagna/DOST10)


    First in SEA: Globe pilots new lens antenna technology for better customer experience


    Leading digital solutions platform Globe has successfully completed pilot deployments in Southeast Asia of the first multi-beam, multi-band lens antenna technology. The new solution provides improved 4G/LTE and 5G mobile capacity and reduces coverage holes, especially in large gatherings.

    Invented by MatSing Ltd. (MatSing) and implemented by IBMS Technology Phils. Corp. (IBMS), the lens antenna easily meets capacity demands of data-heavy smartphone apps, making it ideal for outdoor events, rural areas and densely populated areas in major cities, stadiums, coliseums, rally events and symposia. It also emits and maintains multiple beams cleanly with minimal Radio Frequency interference, deterring signal disruptions which delivers better quality of experience for customers.

    Globe’s technical team recently conducted rigorous testing on-site. Initially, the team installed four antennas in two Globe cell sites in San Jose, Occidental Mindoro, and one Cellsite On Wheels (COW) at the Head in the Clouds Music & Arts Festival in Manila last December. The deployment gave impressive results.

    The lens antennas demonstrated superior performance compared to existing multibeam antennas in all categories.

    The technology provides higher mobile download and upload data speed resulting in lag-free video streaming and gaming, high-quality video conferencing, and delay-free messaging services, even in peak hours and when there are large gatherings. Also, the solution has better indoor penetration and wider reach, resulting in more stable mobile connectivity wherever the subscribers are located.

    Student Eugene Ebeleda Bacence from San Jose, Occidental Mindoro noted how internet connection during online classes has improved in his town because of the new technology.

    “Ngayon ‘pag nagkaklase kami, hindi na putol-putol at nauunawaan ang tinuturo ng teacher namin,” he said in a testimonial video.

    Meanwhile, Myla Novino, a front office associate at a hotel in the same town, shared how Globe service has improved at the hotel where she works after previously having issues with mobile signal.

    “Nitong mga nakaraang araw hindi na siya ganon tulad dati na nawawalan ng signal. Ngayon talaga at least malakas na ‘yung signal. Mas okay siya nagagamit siya for internet, YouTube,” she said.

    Select performance metrics observed on the Globe network directly attributable to lens antennas are the following: 8.36 times improved coverage with stronger and wider LTE signals, 7.92 times increased average LTE speed, 3.1 times greater traffic volume and network usage, and 2.67 times enhanced network quality and mobile data connections.

    “Globe is always a pioneer in adopting new technologies for its customers. The lens antenna technology is another major milestone in Globe’s efforts to provide Filipinos with reliable and high-quality mobile connectivity. We are thrilled with the results of the pilot deployment and are excited to continue working with MatSing to bring this innovation to our network on a larger scale,” said Gerhard Tan, Head of Network Strategy and Technology Enablement at Globe.

    Globe plans to deploy the solution in areas hosting major events and in key pilot sites within Visayas and Mindanao region such as Guimaras, Negros Occidental, Negros Oriental, Cebu, Iloilo, Antique, Aklan, Bohol, Capiz, Bukidnon, Misamis Oriental, Zamboanga del Norte, North Cotabato, and Zamboanga del Sur.

    “MatSing is thankful to the Globe team for the opportunity to demonstrate the technical superiority of our patented lens antennas to deliver superior mobile connectivity for their user base,” said MatSing CEO Bo Larsson. “The extensive macro deployment proved that our lens antennas will deliver higher capacity and enhanced performance in all deployment scenarios.”

    The adoption of lens antenna technology is in line with Globe’s sustainability initiatives as this solution will make the network future-proof and resilient.


    ‘I Want To Be Here’: KonsultaMD, Kiana Valenciano launch song to raise mental health awareness

    Telemedicine service leader KonsultaMD has teamed up with some of the country’s hottest artists Kiana Valenciano, DJ Nix Damn P, and Curtismith, to raise mental health awareness through music.

    KonsultaMD launched the song “I Want To Be Here,” co-written by Kiana and her friend Nieman in Los Angeles, as a powerful reminder that nobody is alone in facing struggles and that help is always available.

    The collaboration is a continuation of KonsultaMD’s mental health awareness campaign, which started with the successful Be Kind To Your Mind concert in 2021.

    KonsultaMD is determined to make an even bigger impact this year, and found the perfect match with Kiana as they share the same goal: to educate and inform individuals about mental health and connect to people who are struggling with it.

    “We believe that mental health is just as important as physical health. We are proud to work with such talented and dedicated artists committed to making a difference. Together, we can break the stigma and raise awareness on mental health through the power of music,” said Cholo Tagaysay, CEO of KonsultaMD.

    With video and chat options for mental health consultations, KonsultaMD is making it easier than ever to access mental health support. And now, with the release of “I Want To Be Here,” the brand hopes to reach even more people with its message of hope and support.

    Meanwhile, as an advocate of mental health awareness, Valenciano is more than happy to be working on this project, sharing that it was something she wished was already around when she was growing up.

    She expressed hopes that people would be able to relate to the song and feel seen and heard, despite the noise of the world around them.

    “We are really, really looking forward to sharing this song with you guys, and I think a lot of you are gonna be able to relate, and I hope you know that it’s okay, whatever you’re going through,” she said.

    The Making of “I Want To Be Here” was a unique experience for the team. The biggest challenge was the distance, with Valenciano in the United States while the rest were in the Philippines. But 15 tracks and a couple of brainstorming sessions later, they finally found the perfect beat that hits right in the feels.

    “I Want To Be Here” can be streamed on Spotify via this link, https://open.spotify.com/album/3Ey6P6x7ELs7DjIuuhtGsB?si=ToT3gMrYRoeD9DZz_wyiYg, and other music streaming platforms. Watch the official music video on FB via https://fb.watch/ijg20VYmDo/ and on YouTube via this link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=24CzvN3lw1k.

    KonsultaMD encourages everyone to stream the song and share it with their friends and family to help raise awareness for mental health. Anyone struggling with mental health may reach out to KonsultaMD by visiting https://konsulta.md or downloading the app on the App Store or Google Play.

    Globe has taken up the advocacy of mental health awareness since 2010 when its impact started to be felt among the youth.

    by Lou Ellen Antonio

    ILIGAN CITY (PIA)–The Chamber of Commerce and Industry Foundation of Iligan Incorporated (Iligan Chamber) spearheaded a business seminar, inviting PhilHealth, the Social Security System, the Bureau of Internal Revenue, and the Pag-IBIG Fund to share updates on their services and programs.

    About 50 micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs) participated in the seminar.

    “The updates given to us will definitely help our bookkeepers, accounting staff, and sole proprietors understand the role of these four sectors in our business’ growth and survival,” said Nestor Ilagan, vice president of the Iligan Chamber.

    Revenue District Office 101 Chief of Assessment Section Lawyer Maricel Arthur shared that MSMEs can avail themselves of the services of the Bureau of Internal Revenue online. They just have to go to the website, www.bir.gov.ph, and choose the “e-services” option. BIR also offers hassle free appointments for its clients since they can now book them online.

    On the other hand, Social Security System Iligan Branch Head Cheryl Villanueva introduced the Worker’s Investment and Savings Program Plus, which is a voluntary retirement savings program offered exclusively to SSS members in addition to its regular social security program. She encouraged the MSMEs to also avail the program for additional savings.

    Meanwhile, PhilHealth Accounts Information Management Specialist Methusella Rhea Endriga shared the newest primary care benefit package of the government, dubbed Konsultasyong Sulit Tama, as mandated by the Universal Health Care Law.

    Moreover, Efren Endriga III of Pag-IBIG Fund Iligan encouraged the MSMEs to avail of housing loans as President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. aims to build 1 million low-cost housing units every year until the end of his term. He also encouraged them to avail of the Pag-IBIG Loyalty Card Plus, which offers exclusive discounts and rewards on grocery purchases, tuition fees, hospital bills, and fuel expenses, among others.

    Iligan Chamber Reggie Punongbayan also hosted the “Kapehan sa Iligan Chamber” to accommodate questions from the participants of the seminar.

    “This aims to discuss the pressing issues concerning the local economy and the business community,” she said. (LELA/PIA-10/Lanao del Norte)


    PAGASA: Expect more rainfall in February

    by Theresa Arlene A. Gambe

    CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY (PIA)–In response to the public’s inquiry on the subsequent rainy season and to increase the climate awareness and preparedness of the people in Mindanao, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) clarified that the region is in the cycle of La Niña.

    “I would like to explain that the La Niña is the dominant driving force that influences our rainfall pattern,” said Anthony Joseph Lucero, the weather services chief of Mindanao PAG-ASA Regional Services Division, during the “Ang Rehiyon Karon” radio program, January 26.

    Lucero recounted that the tropical Pacific has been experiencing La Niña for the past two years and that they expect it to end between March and April this year.

    “Amihan (the North East Monsoon) will last until February—late February, so perhaps it will stop or it will end in mid-March. So, we still expect that we will have more rainfall until February. In fact, above normal,” said Lucero.

    He further confirmed that the coldest month of 2023 will be February, as per observation.

    Once La Niña ends, the climate will return to neutral conditions before the expected development of El Niño.

    Lucero assured that they will closely monitor the patterns and that if La Nia returns, they will notify the public six months in advance.

    He reminded them that the suspension of classes is done through the judgment and action of the local government. PAG-ASA’s only objective is to immediately relay weather and climate information to advise or warn the public. (TAAG/PIA-10)


    DTI MisOr, Solon distribute livelihood kits to flood victims

    by Jan Albert K. Araña

    CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY (PIA)–The Department of Trade and Industry-Misamis Oriental (DTI-MisOr), together with Cagayan de Oro City 2nd District Rep. Rufus B. Rodriguez distributed livelihood kits to the flood victims in Barangay Bugo, here, January 25.

    As one of the barangays affected by flooding caused by heavy rains in October 2022, 68 resident beneficiaries received livelihood kits through DTI-MisOr’s Pangkabuhayan sa Pagbangon at Ginhawa (PPG) program.

    “Kani nga programa sa DTI gihatag kini sa mga biktima sa kalamidad sama kaninyo na nakahigaom ug baha katong October 16,” DTI-MisOr Provincial Director Almer Masillones said.

    (This DTI program is available to disaster victims like you who were flooded last October 16)

    Masillones said the distribution of the kits was made possible through Rodriguez after he was able to push for additional funding.

    She also said that profiling was done by the official’s office in November 2022 to find out who would get the help she was talking about.

    Each of the 68 people who got the kits got a total of P15,000 worth of tools to help them make a living. The kits include 58 kits for selling groceries, 6 kits for selling rice, and 4 kits for making food.

    Rodriguez reminded the beneficiaries to take care of the livelihood that they have received and to make sure that their business will thrive in the long run.

    “Magtan-aw ug mag-monitor sila [DTI] kung nilambo inyong livelihood kani aron maghatag pa sila dugang supporta; mao na atoang gitawag na sustainable support. Ayuha ninyo ang pagnegosyo,” Rodriguez said.

    They [the DTI] will check and monitor your livelihood to see if it has improved so that they can provide additional assistance; this is referred to as sustainable support. Take care of your business)

    DTI-MisOr and Rodriguez hope to one day see the livelihood assistance that was given to the beneficiaries grow and aid them to get back on their feet after the calamity they have experienced. (JAKA/PIA-10/Misamis Oriental)


    BTA bill pushes to institutionalize support for orphans

    MARAWI CITY (PIA)–Bangsamoro lawmakers are sponsoring a measure that would institutionalize support for the welfare of orphans in the Bangsamoro region.

    “For a child who has lost a parent, life is filled with hardships. In the absence of early child and development support, the orphaned child is one of those most vulnerable to poverty, radicalization, and criminality,” said Members of the Parliament who authored Parliament Bill No. 112, also known as the Bangsamoro Orphanage Act of 2022.

    To improve the living conditions of all orphans and give them a chance to live a “fulfilled life,” PB No. 112 calls for the establishment of accredited Bangsamoro orphanages in each province.

    The monitoring and evaluation system for orphaned minors is tasked with leading the creation of a credible mechanism for determining the eligible beneficiaries and creating the appropriate model for the orphanages in the community.

    The system will be composed of the Ministry of Social Services and Development; provincial, municipal, and city social welfare development offices; the Ministry of Interior and Local Government; provincial, local, and barangay local government units; and a traditional leader and ulama or imam of each province in the region.

    If approved, the Bangsamoro government will create orphanages in each of the region’s provinces, with the MSSD serving as the implementing agency.

    Through the proposed measure’s Comprehensive Support Program, orphanages will be provided with basic needs, physical safety and security, socio-economic needs, educational needs, emotional and spiritual needs, and access to justice.

    Orphaned minors, as described in PB No. 122, are those who are under the age of 18, do not have a legal guardian, and have lost both biological parents.

    Meanwhile, orphaned children who have attained the age of 18 or who have been adopted are no longer eligible for the program.

    PB No. 112 was principally authored by MPs Diamila Disimban Ramos, Ali Solaiman, Marjanie Macasalong, Abdullah Macapaar, Basit Abbas, Said Sheik, Khalid Hadji Abdullah, Eddie Alih, Amilbahar Mawallil, Nabila Margarita Pangandaman, and Abdulazis Amenodin. (BTA/PIA-10/Lanao del Sur)


    Globe champions sustainable transport, pilots electric vehicles for employee shuttle service

    Leading digital solutions platform Globe has partnered with Global Electric Transportation (GET) to launch electric-powered shuttles for its employees this January to reduce fuel consumption and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from its fleet vehicles.

    To commemorate this partnership, GET initially provided Globe with two electric vehicles (EVs) to serve as employee shuttles. On Monday, January 23, the GET shuttle started servicing employees for trips around Globe headquarters at the Bonifacio Global City in Taguig and offices in Makati and Mandaluyong City.

    The partnership is an important step towards a more environmentally-friendly fleet of company vehicles, and demonstrates Globe’s commitment to sustainability and its focus on reducing its carbon footprint.

    “Globe is committed to making its operations more sustainable, and we are pleased to be partnering with GET in this effort. We believe that transitioning our fleet operations to electric vehicles will help us make a positive impact on the environment while providing our employees with green transport options,” said Globe Group President and CEO Ernest Cu.

    GET President Freddie Tinga takes Globe Group’s officers for a ride in the GET COMET electric shuttle. Other officers who took the inaugural ride include Globe Chief Finance Officer Rizza Eala, Chief Human Resource Officer Ato Jiao, Chief Sustainability and Corporate Communications Officer Yoly Crisanto, Executive Vice President Bernie Llamzon, and 917Ventures Managing Director Vince Yamat

    He said his vision of transitioning Globe to EV was reinforced during the pandemic, when mobility restrictions grounded vehicles and production of carbon emissions was lessened.

    “The problem here is air pollution. During the pandemic when you’d sit at your balcony and see how clear the air is, you’d think “what if the air is clear every day?” he said at the launch event at The Globe Tower.

    Globe endeavors to make EVs a substantial part of its fleet, targeting to transition 5% of its service vehicles to EVs within the next 6 years.

    “We are excited to partner with a company such as Globe that has consistently advocated for sustainability. This launch is a major step in achieving our common goal to provide sustainable transport in the Philippines,” said GET president Freddie Tinga.

    Tinga hopes the Globe model on EV use will be replicated in other parts of the country.

    “We really look forward to making this not just a shuttle service but hopefully the future of transport and mobility in the country,” Tinga said at a launch event, where Globe Group and GET executives kicked off the EV service for Globe employees.

    EVs offer several benefits such as zero fuel emissions and fast-charging lithium-ion batteries. They can also accommodate more passengers than traditional shuttles and come with an intelligent fleet management system that includes GPS tracking, route optimization, and maintenance alerts.

    In particular, GET’s EV shuttle Comet provides safe and convenient transportation while helping curb carbon emissions. As a fully-electric shuttle with fast-charging lithium-ion batteries, GET cuts down 40,000 kgs of carbon emissions per year.

    The shuttle can ferry 30 passengers at a time and has a wheelchair ramp for use by PWD passengers. It also allows cashless payments via GCash.

    The use of EV is critical in Globe’s reduction of its Scope 1 GHG emissions in support of the Philippines’ commitment to reduce Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions by 75 percent in 2030. This is also in alignment with Republic Act 11697, or the Electric Vehicle Industry Development Act, which mandates that corporate fleets ensure that 5% of their vehicles, whether owned or leased, are EVs within the government-prescribed timeframe.

    As part of its investments into sustainable transportation, Globe, through its corporate venture builder 917Ventures and major stakeholder Ayala Corporation, also recently partnered with global two-wheel electric vehicle and battery-swapping technology leader Gogoro to bring the technology to the Philippines.

    Piloting in Metro Manila in Q1 2023, Gogoro’s Smartscooters will serve as an eco-friendly alternative to fossil fuel-powered vehicles currently used by the logistics and last-mile delivery industry. Gogoro® Smartscooters® are powered by Gogoro’s® battery swapping platform through conveniently located stations, where users can quickly swap depleted batteries for fully-charged ones in seconds.

    Globe also supports the Ayala Corporation’s commitment to respond to an urgent call-to-action for companies to set emissions reduction targets in line with a 1.5°C future, backed by a global network of United Nations agencies and business and industry leaders.

    As a participant in the global Race to Zero campaign, Globe is committed to halving its GHG emissions by 2030 through the Science Based Target Initiative (SBTi), and achieving Net Zero by 2050.
