I’m privileged to write for the PCGOWA and PCGSFI to keep you abreast on what’s happening in the ladies’ circle. Though it may seem that our ladies are not seen as often at the Coast Guard headquarters as we used to, I’m glad we are still up and about and focused to fulfill our duties to serve, work behind the scene, and assist in some humanitarian activities of the Coast Guard.

Duly recognized by the PCG, the PCGOWA and the PCGSFI are both duly registered organizations under the Securities and Exchange Commission. These organizations are aimed at promoting the welfare of their beneficiaries. The PCGOWA embarks on the social responsibilities of its members being the ever supportive wives of PCG officers. The PCG ladies are always ready to render assistance as may be requested in any PCG ceremonial or humanitarian projects or activities. On the other hand, the PCGSFI manages a long-standing scholarship program that provides educational assistance to intellectually-gifted but economically challenged dependents of PCG enlisted personnel. The PCGOWA and PCGSFI generate funds through selected fund-raising projects in order to pursue their goals. Despite very modest resources, both organizations are able to cope up in providing and sustaining the duly established fund support for would-be scholars and likewise, be of valuable assistance to some PCG command activities as requested. And through this, we are able to develop and enhance fellowship among our ladies. In recent years, the PCGOWA and PCGSFI undertook several projects under the able leadership of previous lady advisers. We wish to continue to move forward in upholding the ideals and aspirations of the said organizations.

This year, the PCGOWA had the best of chances to participate in a series of events. In February 2009, in coordination with the PCG command, the PCGOWA ladies took charge of the planning and arrangement of the event for the two-part Valentine’s Party for the Enlisted Personnel and civilian employees held on February 11, 2009 at the PCG Function Room. The second part held the following day, February 12, with the PCG officers and their beloved wives celebrating Valentine’s Day “in style”. The incorporation of the renewal of vows into the program which was officiated by Fr. Edmund Desierto, with the assistance of Fr. Jude Besinga, made the occasion a very special and romantic one.

Last summer, the ladies held its first ever PCGOWA Summer Fellowship with several active and retired members of the organization in attendance. We’ve never imagined how overwhelmingly successful the occasion turned out to be which had left a mark in our hearts and in remembrance of all the fun we had during the affair. And what with the routine antics of Dr. Michelle and Cdr. Allen Dalangin as the emcees of the party, the perfect duo really turned the house down with laughter as they led parlor games for the ladies. Mrs Poblacion was very lucky to bring home the first prize. She almost fell from her seat when her name was announced as the winner. The event was also graced by the commandant, ADMIRAL Willie Tamayo, who has always shown his full support to the noble projects of the ladies. We hope that this kind of gathering among active and retired ladies will happen every year for all of us to be able to reunite with old friends and reminisce our happier days as coast guard ladies.

As requested by the command, the PCG ladies got involved during the National Maritime Week Celebration from September 21 to 27, 2009. We were able to join the motorcade with the PCG command entourage and other government agencies, private sectors and different maritime institutions. This week-long celebration was concluded by the event tagged as the “Children’s Maritime Treat” wherein we were requested to assist and escort some 100 orphans from different orphanages for a tour at the Manila Ocean Park for them to appreciate our country’s beautiful marine world. But due to the onset of Typhoon Ondoy, the activity at the said park was postponed to a later date, October 10, 2009, a week before PCG Anniversary Celebration. Instead, we proceeded to the HPCG Function Room for a party treat waiting for the orphans. Everybody enjoyed the puppet shows, balloon shaping and face painting but nothing could compare with the magic brought by Jollibee himself especially when he came out and cheered the orphans. The scene indeed brought out the child in me. We had our share of experience after being stranded at HPCG after the party treat due to the heavy weather. The situation bonded us more during our “overnight camping escapade” at the headquarters. And since we portray our role as wives of public servants, the PCGOWA likewise participated in donating relief goods, as well as acting as coordinator, together with the PCG Medical and Dental Group, in collecting various donations from some benevolent sponsors from among the Coast Guard members themselves and in distributing the relief goods to organic members of PCG who also became victims of Typhoon Ondoy. We likewise distributed relief goods at Coast Guard Base Taguig to residents of different barangays affected by the flash flood in Taguig area. The ladies were also requested to make the necessary coordination and arrangements during the blessing of the Coast Guard Computer Laboratory and Library at CG Base Taguig, the newly-renovated Coast Guard Operations/Action Center and Conference Room, and likewise, the Coast Guard Function Room at HPCG during the 108th PCG Anniversary Celebration on October 16, 2009.

The PCGSFI, on the other hand, is able to sustain its objectives by recruiting new candidates for scholarship for a 4-year college course to fill up the 3 slots vacated by previous scholars of the foundation. A total of 28 aspirants from the different regions nationwide went through the rigid preliminary screening to determine who among them will qualify for the final selection process. The 3 candidates who topped the screening were named new scholars of the PCGSFI while 4 more ranking candidates were adopted by our benevolent benefactors, for a total of eight(8) scholars. Other candidates who didn’t make it were given incentives to cover their travel expenses thru the kindness of no less than the Commandant himself.

MANILA, Philippines — Bureau of Immigration agents announced the arrest of a Korean national wanted by authorities in Seoul for swindling two compatriots of more than 100 million won. Bureau of Immigration intelligence officer Bobby Raquepo, chief of the bureau’s fugitive search unit (FSU), identified the captured Korean as 49-year-old Kim Sang Wook, who was arrested on Tuesday in Malvar Street, Malate, Manila.

The FSU operatives were armed with a mission order from Bureau of Immigration Commissioner Jaime Morente who issued the same at the request of the Korean embassy in Manila. Raquepo said that a Korean court had issued an arrest warrant against Kim who is also the subject of a red notice from Interpol. He further disclosed that Kim was a teacher wanted for swindling his victims of 100 million won. Kim was reportedly found defrauding his victims six times by deceiving and promising his victims’ sons that they could be employed as teachers. Investigations revealed that Kim fled to Manila on February 2015 under a tourist visa and has not left the country since then. According to Raquepo, Kim will be deported, considering he is an undesirable alien for being a fugitive from justice. Morente then warned foreign fraudsters and fugitives staying in the country, “We are serious in our drive against undesirable aliens. We will hunt each one down, deport them, and bar them from re-entering the country,” he said. Kim is temporarily detained at the Bureau of Immigration Warden Facility (BIWF) pending deportation proceedings. Meanwhile, Morente lauded the improvements made at the BIWF. BIWF Chief Remiecar Caguiron detailed that the BIWF has undergone a total revamp under her administration. "Apart from improving the quality of our personnel through seminars on jail management and human rights, we have made numerous improvements in the facilities of the detention center," said Caguiron. "We renovated a lot of areas that were already old and dilapidated, and used the open spaces to create a multi-purpose hall," she shared. Caguiron clarified that the BIWF "is not a jail, but a detention center" where erring foreigners are temporarily held pending their deportation. The new facilities were made following calls to improve the conditions of the detention center. "The BIWF has a capacity of less than 200, hence it is quite a challenge especially since our intel has been conducting numerous arrests. The management actually is looking at the possibility of setting up another bigger detention center somewhere north of Luzon. This is part of our long term plans," she shared.

According to Bureau of Immigration Port Operations Chief Grifton Medina. —An Iranian fugitive wanted for an assault and battery case was intercepted by immigration officers upon her arrival at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) on Thursday morning. Bureau of Immigration (BI) Port Operations Division (POD) Chief Grifton Medina said 31-year-old Zare Bahari Bahareh was immediately excluded hours after she arrived at the NAIA terminal 3 aboard a Cebu Pacific flight from Dubai.

Medina said Zare Bahari, who was a respondent to an assault and battery case in Dagupan, was intercepted by Bureau of Immigration men upon seeing that her name has a hit in their derogatory database. According to Bureau of Immigration NAIA Terminal 3 Head Bradford Allen So, Zare Bahari was excluded as she is the subject of a red notice from Interpol. So likewise disclosed that during the implementation of Zare Bahari’s exclusion, another Iranian national they later identified as Minbashi Moeini Morteza had then approached the Immigration arrival area. "Morteza was unruly. He was able to enter restricted areas at the airport, collect the luggage of Bahari, and sneak into the immigration arrival area to personally fetch his compatriot, surprisingly without an airport pass," So said. He added that Morteza's presence in the arrival area was a brazen case of security breach that they had to immediately report to the Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA). "Morteza and Zare Bahari were already causing a scene, and had to be forced apart by airport authorities, as Zare Bahari was screaming ‘Jesus kill you all Filipinos!’” So further shared. Morteza was reportedly then taken into custody by airport security personnel. Immigration Commissioner Jaime Morente then expressed his dismay towards the incident. “Foreign nationals should respect our laws when they are in our country. Improper behavior and derogatory remarks gave the officer further reason to deny Zare Bahari’s entry,” he stated. He likewise requested airport authorities to conduct an investigation on the illegal entry of Morteza in the airport premises. “This is a clear security breach, and should not be taken lightly. We are deeply concerned as to how this person was able to enter the airport without inspection,” he added.

Coast Guard District Northern Luzon rolled up its sleeves to rise up the challenge of teaching civilians about safe water rescue, the work it knows best. The 4-day training title water search and rescue (WaSAR) was sponsored by the LGU of Vigan City, Ilocos Sur and was participated in by twenty (20) rescue students from 29 July 01 august 2009.

There were four (4) basic modules which are basic swimming strokes. Life saving techniques, rubber boat operators and basic life support. Presentation materials and verbal instructions were mainly in Filipino or Ilocano which was truly appreciated by the students because it facilitated easy understanding on their part. The effort of the CDGNLZ training staff truly paid of as proven  the post training assessment by the LGUs and students that the training was conducted in a manner that is “non militarized ”and quite cheerful which contrary to their initial expectation, made learning all the more enjoyable and effective.

This is the third WaSAR training held within region1 over the years which has fortified the presence of coast guard trained water securers in Pangasinan, Ilocos Norte and now in Ilocos sur. The ideals for CDGNLZ to have “stand-by partners” at the level of the community during disaster emergency that can provide a swift response during the “golden hour” when casualties may still be rescued alive. Since it imparts capabilities to save lives it impowers local rescuers and coordination of response be easily established even prior to the arrival of responding SOG personnel in the area.

PASAY, Philippines— Bureau of Immigration Chief Grifton Medina."Our immigration officers found numerous inconsistencies in their statements. They all eventually admitted having United Arab Emirates (UAE) visas in their possession and that their final destination is Dubai where they were recruited to work as household service workers.". Four undocumented overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) hired to work as household service workers (HSW) in Dubai were stopped at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) for attempting to leave for Bangkok in the guise of being tourists, the Bureau of Immigration (BI) said.

“We are in the midst of an intensified campaign against human trafficking, thus we are warning aspiring OFWs to comply with the rules and requirements for overseas workers,” said Bureau of Immigration Commissioner Jaime Morente in a statement. “We are likewise warning recruiters and other cohorts not to attempt to assist or vouch for illegal workers, as you will face human trafficking cases which could lead to life imprisonment,” he added. The Bureau of Immigration chief issued the statement after immigration officers intercepted four women at the NAIA Terminal 3 who pretended they were going to Thailand as vacationing tourists. Bureau of Immigration port operations division chief Grifton Medina reported that the women were about to board a flight to Bangkok last Oct. 9 when they were intercepted by members of the bureau’s travel control and enforcement unit (TCEU). “They pretended that they all knew each other as they were co-workers and friends,” said Medina. He added that a woman who allegedly recruited the workers and was supposed to vouch for them and accompany them in their trip was also barred from leaving. They were all turned over to the Inter-Agency Council Against Trafficking (IACAT) for investigation and filing of appropriate charges, Medina said. Bureau of Immigration TCEU chief Timotea Barizo said the women initially claimed to be employed at the travel agency owned by their recruiter, who also arranged their trip to Bangkok. “During immigration inspection, the recruiter would act as the spokesperson for the entire group. She kept on answering for everyone, and has everyone’s documentation. This caused our officers to further doubt their story, hence they verified and eventually discovered the deceit,” said Barizo. “We are noticing here a pattern where trafficking victims are being made to appear as employees of their recruiters. But such scheme will not work anymore, luma na yan, we knew of this trick a long time ago,” Barizo said. The names of the passengers were not divulged to a prohibition in the anti-trafficking law.

Last August 2008, I led the delegation of Philippine Coast Guard Auxiliary which attended the US Coast Guard Auxialiary’s annual National Convention in my new capacity as PCGA National Director. It was there, during the International Round Table discussion, that the US Coast Guard Auxiliary presented the task of forming an alliance of Search and Rescue Organizations in the Asia Pacific Region. COMMO Ray Campbell, National Commodore of the Australian Volunteer Coast Guard Association (AVCGA) and I, accepted the challenge and committed that we would try to form the alliance before the next USCGA National Convention in August 2009.

Three months after, on November 2008, being invited to attend the Australian Volunteer Coast Guard Association’s annual convention, I led four other flag officers to Brisbane, Australia. There we signed a Memorandum of Agreement with the AVCGA, similar to what we have with the USCGA. After the convention, we had a meeting where we agreed to organize an Asia Pacific conference tentatively to be held in February or March of 2009 in Manila, Philippines.

Seven suspected victims of human traffickings were rescued by immigration officers at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) after they were intercepted for possessing spurious travel documents. “These fraud syndicates continue to ignore our warnings. There will be no letup in our campaign against human trafficking and their victims will not be allowed to leave if they are caught,” said Bureau of Immigration (BI) Commissioner Jaime Morente. Morente issued the statement after the seven passengers were stopped from leaving the country last week in three separate instances at Terminals 3 and 1 of the NAIA.

The latest interception involved five passengers who pretended to be tourists in attempting to leave for Malaysia last Oct. 5 at NAIA 3. “They admitted paying their recruiters fees ranging from P125,000 to P175,000 each in exchange for processing their jobs and travel papers to Australia, which was their final destination,” said Bureau of Immigration Port Operations Division Chief Grifton Medina. The passengers were reportedly accompanied by a woman who was also stopped due to a pending court cases of estafa and illegal recruitment. ‘They also presented fraudulently manufactured employee IDs which were given to them by their handlers to make it appear that they are gainfully employed here and are thus legitimate tourists,” Medina added. Earlier, the BI’s travel control and enforcement unit (TCEU) reported that a Malaysia-bound woman was intercepted also at NAIA 3 last Sept. 24 for having a spurious United Kingdom visa and tampered pages on her passport. “We also discovered that she was already previously barred from leaving the country on suspicion of being a tourist worker,” Bureau of Immigration-TCEU chief Timotea Barizo said. On Oct. 2, TCEU members also stopped from leaving an underage overseas Filipino worker who misrepresented her age by falsifying her date of birth. All seven passengers were turned over to the Inter-Agency Council Against Trafficking (IACAT) for assistance and further investigation.

The UPHSD College of Maritime Education is devising all measures to effectively assist its maritime cadets to enable them to undergo their on board training at the earliest possible time. 

While most cadets prefer to be accommodated on board international vessels for the conduct of their shipboard or on board training (OBT), domestic vessels likewise provide significant number of OBT berths for maritime cadets. While cadets are paid their allowances on board international vessels, cadets normally pay for the extra cost of board and lodging while undergoing shipboard training on board domestic vessels.

Bureau of Immigration (BI) officers at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) recently barred from entering the country a Taiwanese fugitive wanted in his country for business fraud. In a report to Immigration Commissioner Jaime Morente, Bureau of Immigration port operations division chief Grifton Medina identified the Taiwanese as 70-year-old Miao Jwu-Yi, who was intercepted September 30 at the NAIA 1 terminal upon his arrival from Hongkong. Medina said Miao was apprehended after his name registered a hit in the Bureau of Immigration’s database of blacklisted foreigners with derogatory records.

He was flown to Taipei the following day, together with his escorts from the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office (TECO) in Manila, Medina added. TECO officials said Miao was convicted and sentenced to more than four years in prison in 2017 for violating Taiwan’s Business Entity Accounting Act. The said act prescribes the code of conduct and rules of practice for Taiwan’s accountants and provides penalties for violators. Miao reportedly went into hiding and fled Taiwan upon learning of his conviction, prompting the district prosecutor’s office in Taipei to issue a warrant for his arrest. Atty. Rommel Tacorda, the BI’s border control and intelligence unit (BCIU) chief, disclosed that prior to his flight, Miao was issued a single-use travel document by TECO because the Taiwanese government had earlier cancelled his passport. “He remains in our blacklist, thus he will be barred again from entering our country if he attempts to return in the future,” Tacorda said.

As it is told, the speed of the leader determines the rate of the pack! With a flamboyant and resolute Commandant, ADMIRAL Wilfredo D Tamayo, the Coast Guard Special Operations Group (CGSOG) could not afford to slow down. Its fleet of rubber boats is always warmed up and the legs of its frogmen are always in shape. Its distinguished lead officers are always on alert to receive direct instructions from the Fleet Commander or the Commandant himself.

Taking the cue from the innovative character of the Commandant, who seems to grasp fully well the two great laws of life: “Growth and Decay”, the CGSOG slowly restructure and comes up with dynamic innovations to showcase its relevance to the general public. On several occasions, the Commandant pointed out that the PCG has evolved into a multi-tasked, multi faceted and multi-roled organization. The changes or “growth” as we may consider of course are not mere capricious whims but rather natural forces adhered to, otherwise “decay” would engulf our organization. These pronouncements have inspired the Group to come up with its innovative programs and be critical with it coined and adopted motto “Semper Superne Nitens” which simply means “always striving upwards.

Bureau of Immigration (BI) Commissioner Jaime Morente identified the alien as 71-year-old Katsumi Ohno, who was arrested last Sept. 30 along the service road in Roxas Blvd., Pasay City by members of the bureau’s fugitive search unit (FSU). Morente said the arresting agents were armed with a warrant of deportation which he signed pursuant to a deportation order that the Bureau of Immigration board of commissioners issued against the Japanese on June 20, 2019.

Ohno’s deportation was reportedly sought by the Japanese embassy last February when it informed the Bureau of Immigration about a standing arrest warrant for fraud that a Japanese court issued against him. “We also learned that his passport already expired in November last year, making him an undocumented alien,” Morente said. He added that Ohno has been included in the immigration blacklist to prevent him from returning to the Philippines. Investigation also revealed that Ohno has been hiding in the country for nine years or since April 10, 2011 when he arrived as a tourist via a flight from Hongkong. Ohno is currently detained at the Bureau of Immigration jail in Bicutan, Taguig City.

The past and recent sea and disasters in the ACR of Coast Guard Station Surigao, particularly Dinagat-Surigao and approaches, and the less visibility of search and rescue units or at times the  delayed search and rescue operations by concerned agencies not to mention its limited assets and capability, prompted the need for an organization with local SEARCH AND RESCUE capability in the area. The idea was to have a search and rescue organization capable of rescue operations that would react first pending the arrival of assets from the government. Such idea was conceptualized between the coastguard in Surigao and the Surigao-Dinagat passenger motorbanca association  where its members are boat owners and operators in the area. With series of talks conducted for the idea, and finalization, the Surigao-Dinagat searchand rescue fleet was established through MOA between the  organizers and the PCG which was held on 11 December 2008. The signatories were ADMIRAL Wilfredo D Tamayo PCG, Commandant PCG and ENGR ROLDAN E LISONDRA representing Surigao Del Norte Motorized Banca Operators Association, Inc. with eighty four (84) motor banca members.

The Bureau of Immigration (BI) announced the deployment of 67 newly-hired immigration officers to the country's international airports after graduating on Wednesday, October 2. According to Bureau of Immigration Commissioner Jaime Morente, this is part of the agency's continuous efforts to improve its services to the travelling public. "The graduation of the officers is timed prior to the projected influx of passenger in the airport in the next few months for the upcoming South East Asian Games, and at the same time as the holiday rush begins," Morente said.

Morente said that the new recruits underwent the Border Control Officers Module (BCOM), a six-month long training designed to teach immigration laws, rules, and procedures. "The 67 graduates, which consist of 38 females and 29 males, were divided into two classes. They began training at the Philippine Immigration Academy in Clark Pampanga last April. After three months, they were assigned at the airports and the Bureau of Immigration's main office for another three months as on-the-job trainees," Morente said. Morente further shared that aside from the usual lectures, it is the first time that they have included Disaster and Emergency Preparedness Response seminar in the program. "This kind of training adheres with the changing times. We want our officers to be fully prepared in the field even during emergency situations," he said. The Bureau's Port Operations Division (POD) Chief Grifton Medina likewise disclosed that as part of their continuous effort to address the problem of congestion in our airports, all graduates have signed a lock-in contract with the POD stating that they will be deployed in our ports for a minimum of two years. "We want the concept of genuine public service to be inculcated in our front-liners. We need them to be committed mentally and physically to the job," Medina added.

We invite you to visit Coast Guard District Northern Luzon for yourself which sits on a vast 3,000 sqm land in the middle of a cove lined by lengthy mile of a fine beach sand and the quiet, pristine waters of the South China Sea. A stunning million-dollar view of the sunset is reward in itself after a long hot day.

It is home to 184 CG personnel and is located in San Fernando City, La Union. One can virtually find everything here from banks to resorts, malls, food chains, commercial establishments and entertainment facilities.

Coast Guard working in this District is dictated by the geography of Regions 1 and 2 which it covers. It guards the seven (7) provinces of Pangasinan, La Union, Ilocos Sur, Ilocos Nort, Cagayan, Batanes and Isabela. Natural features of these provinces are a common coastline which is lined by cities and municipalities. Many coastal dwellers are naturally fisher folks or have resorts as their means of earning a living. Unfortunately year-round unpredictable gale winds and seasonal tropical storms may wreak havoc to these tranquil lands. In existence also are long interlacing river systems that incidences of drowning are quite common. It is not surprising that folks here have witnessed, as seen televised, actual search and rescue operations conducted over the years. There are about 1 to 2 or more SAR operation per month because LGUs have come to depend on our search and rescue capabilities. Likewise, invitations to attend disaster-related preparedness and response conferences have steadily risen over the past months.

The nearness of Taiwan to Northern Luzon also poses a threat that distinctly belongs only to this District. Folks in Cagayan have become used to the inherent presence of lawless Taiwanese fishing vessels  involved in smuggling of goods, illegal fishing and poaching. The presence of MCS-3001, 3005 and 3006 water vessels in the area are our mighty front liners in the campaign to curb cited forms of maritime criminalities. On 12 and 15 May 2009, these MCS vessels were able to intercept two (2) of these Taiwanese fishing boats. TFB CHIN HONG CHEN and TZU FU TIEN  had on board 18 foreign nationals, charged with illegal fishing and poaching, a violation of RA 8550 (The Philippine Fisheries Code of 1998).

Recently, CGDNLZ played host to the first mobile training innovated by CGETC, MARSEC Class 10-09 which is a month-long course was held at the US-standard Training Facility of HCGDNLZ from 06 July to 07 August 2009. A total of 41 students, who are mostly assigned in this District, graduated during the commencement ceremony.

Where MAREP is concerned, again this District has been burdened by 4 incidences of coal spills. These incidents usually happens when coal-carrying barges making deliveries encounter tropical storms or gale winds while in transit to a port within the AOR. Industrial high-quality coals are materials needed by many power plants and cement factories situated in the provinces of Pangasinan and La Union, At present, PCG is providing security to a grounded barged APOL 3001 at the coast of Brgy Suso, Sta. Maria, Ilocos Sur. On preservation of mangroves, this District mandatory participates in all the seasonal tree-planting activities of the DENR.

The Bureau of Immigration (BI) urged aspiring Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) to avoid human traffickers and illegal recruiters who would prey on their vulnerabilities, after the agency uncovered the recurrence a modus operandi of a syndicate that houses and trains its victims at safe houses before deployment abroad. Bureau of Immigration Commissioner Jaime Morente issued the reminder after two women were recently barred from leaving the country for misrepresenting their age and narrating their experience with the syndicate that recruited them. The women had alleged that they were kept by their handlers in a safehouse in Paco, Manila for two months before they were booked for their flights.

 

Morente instructed the bureau’s port operations division (POD) and travel control and enforcement unit (TCEU) to conduct strict profiling and inspection of departing passengers to ensure that no underage OFWs are able to leave. According to Bureau of Immigration POD chief Grifton Medina, the two women, aged 19 and 20, were intercepted last Sept. 21 at the NAIA terminal 2 in their attempt to board a connecting flight from Dubai to Saudi Arabia. Medina said the passengers both presented valid passports, visas, job contract, and overseas employment certificates but the birth dates in their documents were intentionally altered to make it appear that they meet the age requirement for Household Service Workers which is 23 years. “Both women initially claimed that they were 26 years old, but eventually admitted their real age upon questioning,” Medina said. Bureau of Immigration-TCEU chief Timotea Barizo said that the women recounted how they were housed for two months at a safehouse in Manila where they were briefed and taught by their recruiters how to respond to questions from immigration officers. “We've heard this in the past, usually victims would be briefed a few days before their flight. But now they're actually housed for months to train on how to evade immigration questioning," said Barizo. "The two victims admitted that their documents were given only prior to departure, and that they were told to open it only after check in. This forces them to go on and comply with the scheme despite the discrepancy since they are already there,” Barizo said. Morente reiterated his reminder to OFWs not to fall prey to these schemes. "Transact only with legitimate agencies accredited by the POEA (Philippine Overseas Employment Administration)," he reminded.

Two (2) officials from the Cooperative Association of Japan Shipbuilders (CAJS) comprised of its Managing Director, Mr Sekimoto, and Mr Takashi Shioiri, Director, Shipbuilding JETRO Singapore, will extend their follow-on visit to the University of Perpetual Help System DALTA (Las Piñas Campus) on Oct 10, 2019 in preparation for the planned MOA signing between CAJS and UPHSD concerning internship program that will be implemented at the member shipyards of CAJS under the auspices of the Nippon Foundation.

The said internship program will provide deserving UPHSD BS Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering (BSNAME) studentsand/or graduates the opportunity to acquire high level of expertise by allowing the interns the opportunity to experience practical training in any of the CAJS member shipyards.

During its 26th anniversary celebration in June 2009. Coast Guard District Western Visayas adopted seemingly “old-new” theme- passionate coastguarding. Old because “passion” is an oft-used word to describe something or someone of intensity, to the point of being a cliché. New because the word is not a favorite to describe or characterize a technical thing, more so a technical service that is engaged in the serious business of safety and security. But despite the lack of bravado, they are interesting and substantial words that one can live by.

As the Philippine Coast Guard celebrates its 108th founding anniversary, there is that compelling urge to visit those words anew. For the words seem to sound a theme good not only for one anniversary but for many anniversaries. It might even be a theme for “all seasons”.

At a glance it may seem unlikely theme. The words do not seem to fit, or go along well like a mismatched pair. It doesn’t evoke the aura of loftiness, nay seriousness of common themes – say “Dedicated and Committed Coast Guard”. It also doesn’t conjure the nationalistic fervor of one framed in the national language, like – “Malinis, mapayapa at ligtas na karagatan” Still, the words have certain charm and appeal that seem to resonate well to those who desire (or demand) more from the Coast Guard. They reflect the yearning better and go beyond the normal. Although the operative word is coast guarding, one cannot help to be titillated by the modifier. Indeed, one is wont to think of the sensual or temporal when we speak of “passionate”, ignoring its other equally interesting meanings. Even the Greek ‘pathos’ where the word passionate was derived exudes several meanings e.g. – something that happen to you bad or good, intense feelings of want or need, showing great love and affection, etc. Just the first two definitions could already evoke a wide spectrum of meanings and interpretations, a testament to the encompassing and overarching power of the word.

The Bureau of Immigration (BI) urged aspiring Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) to avoid human traffickers and illegal recruiters who would prey on their vulnerabilities, after the agency uncovered the recurrence a modus operandi of a syndicate that houses and trains its victims at safe houses before deployment abroad. Bureau of Immigration Commissioner Jaime Morente issued the reminder after two women were recently barred from leaving the country for misrepresenting their age and narrating their experience with the syndicate that recruited them. The women had alleged that they were kept by their handlers in a safehouse in Paco, Manila for two months before they were booked for their flights.

Morente instructed the bureau’s port operations division (POD) and travel control and enforcement unit (TCEU) to conduct strict profiling and inspection of departing passengers to ensure that no underage OFWs are able to leave. According to Bureau of Immigration POD chief Grifton Medina, the two women, aged 19 and 20, were intercepted last Sept. 21 at the NAIA terminal 2 in their attempt to board a connecting flight from Dubai to Saudi Arabia. Medina said the passengers both presented valid passports, visas, job contract, and overseas employment certificates but the birth dates in their documents were intentionally altered to make it appear that they meet the age requirement for Household Service Workers which is 23 years. “Both women initially claimed that they were 26 years old, but eventually admitted their real age upon questioning,” Medina said. Bureau of Immigration-TCEU chief Timotea Barizo said that the women recounted how they were housed for two months at a safehouse in Manila where they were briefed and taught by their recruiters how to respond to questions from immigration officers. “We've heard this in the past, usually victims would be briefed a few days before their flight. But now they're actually housed for months to train on how to evade immigration questioning," said Barizo. "The two victims admitted that their documents were given only prior to departure, and that they were told to open it only after check in. This forces them to go on and comply with the scheme despite the discrepancy since they are already there,” Barizo said. Morente reiterated his reminder to OFWs not to fall prey to these schemes. "Transact only with legitimate agencies accredited by the POEA (Philippine Overseas Employment Administration)," he reminded.

Few may choose to tread the long and narrow path but as the Bible tells us, it is the path that leads to something better and brighter. When first the PCG was separated from the PN, not many dared to cast their lots with it. What happened resonates deeply with the concept of maritime trade of olden days when a voyage is deemed an adventure redolent with risks and danger yet may unexpectedly turn into a highly profitable endeavor. The PCG experience is parallel to that part of maritime history. Yet it has now emerged successful in the gamble that it took 11 years ago. To date the PCG Bill or the law that seeks to not only update RA 5173 as amended but also to modernize and empower the Philippine Coast Guard has already reached 3rd reading in the Senate, thanks to the unanimous support of the Senate Committee on National Defense, Chaired by Sen. Rodolfo Biazon and the whole Philippine Senate. It has now been calendared to be presented in the bicameral session of Congress on November 2009.

The much daunted “global crisis” has prompted some of the world’s leading financial technocrats and managers to review and redefine their respective country’s existing trading and economic policies in order to mitigate the long –term.

In this case of the Philippines, our country is “probably fortunate” to have the usual financial miracle coming from the much need Dollar remittances from the more than Ten (10) million Overseas Filipino Workers (OFW) that span from Europe \, Middle East, Austral-Asia and the continental United States including all oceans of the world (of course, we have to include our seafarers). The infusion of the green bucks from our OFWs, more often stabilizes the country’s Balance of Payment thereby alleviating our country’s dependency on the U.S. dollar.

But for how long are we going to be dependent on our OFW remittances in order to literally save our economy from unforeseen fortuitous economic events? As an economic policy direction, are we going to maintain our global niche as the foremost labor export producing country in the next Thirty (30) years? Do we have a choice?

Although our President had infused some major structural economic reforms in order to jeep our country’s economy resilient in the face of this global economic downturn, our policy makers in government (both local and national) should collectively look for some ways and means to find for some durable and lasting solutions in order to galvanize our domestic economy and make the same as the bulwark of progress and development, and not relying heavily on overseas remittances,

If one has to review the present political grouping of nations around the world , by way of dissecting the major political and social events that had influenced mankind in the las 1,500 years, and likewise basing it from the historical perspective presented to us by Near Eastern, Middle Eastern, Western historians we could readily agree primarily that nations of today is practically an indirect by-product of “trade” of natural resources, most specially, food commodities that cannot be found in Europe. These are the silk trade route to China the European demand for sugar and spices from the Indies , the European thirst for coffee from Africa and South America (gold as well), the European demand for tea from Asia, the discovery of oil in the Arabian peninsula, the establishment of the British East India Company to oversee (later govern) India’s natural resources and the commodities (which eventually led mahatma Gandhi to dramatize the plight of his people against the imposition of “salt taxes”, and later on went to something politically bigger leading to India’s gaining of independence). Yet these are just few of the myriad economic events (that involves trade) that had crucially shaped the culture and political destinies and divisions of most countries in Asia, Africa and America.

The University of Perpetual Help System DALTA will hold its traditional Maritime Week Celebration from Sept 22-29, 2019 in a simple but meaningful manner.

Education, has been often defined, “is any act or experience that has a formative effect on the mind, character or physical ability of an individual”. Education also is a process of educating or teaching and its only purpose is to teach a student how to live his life – by developing his mind and equipping him to deal with reality. Integral in achieving the Command’s goal is the development of a Coast Guard wide management culture for all the Officers and personnel. And as the Philippines Coast Guard diligently performs its mandated tasks of ensuring safety, security and protecting the marine environment, it also has to maintain its competitiveness with other agencies as well as other institutions. Further, with the realization of the need for improving the student’s capabilities as well as the quality of instructors, a comprehensive analysis and hands-on alignment of educational practices across all levels and leadership of its personnel was developed. Improving the PCG’s efficiency through education, training, structures, and system development is the key towards national and global competitiveness. This approach enables the organization to efficiently achieve its set of objectives. Local Training. On the current courses, students are required meet the mandated proficiency mark set by the Coast Guard Education and Training Doctrine and Development Research Center (DDRC). It also contains the instructional practice being used and how those practices affect a student’s performance. Realizing that this command needs some improvement particularly on special and technological aspect, as well as the educational trends in order to be globally competitive, there is a need to identify the best practices in instruction. The PCG recently held a simultaneous convening for the various courses being conducted by the Command. Theses include, inter alia, The Coast Guard Officers Course Class(CGPC) 10 – 09, Candidate Coast Guardsman Course Class(CGMC) 18-09 abroad Coast Guard Training Facility, Lower Bicutan, Taguig City, the Basic Underwater Special Operation Course (BUSOC), K9 Handlers Course at Coast Guard Base Farola ,Maritime Security (MARSEC) at Coast Guard District Northern Luzon, Maritime Safety Administration (MARSAD) at CG District Western Visayas, Coast Guard Staff Course(CGSC) at CGETC, CG Base Farola, General Operation Technician Course(GOTC) at CGWCEISS, Mandaluyong City , Aids to Navigation Course(ATON) at HMSSC, Sangley Point, Cavite City. Currently, there are also tow(2) officers taking – up Master in Ship Management at PMMA Graduate School, two (2) officers taking up Public Safety Officers Senior Executive Course at NPC, Fort Bonifacio, and tow (2) Enlisted Personnel taking up Public Safety Investigation and Detection Course at General Headquarters (GHQ). As future leaders, PCG officers as well as senior enlisted personnel need to have the full capabilities particularly with planning and decision-making Leadership capabilities as well as management skills need to be given emphasis as preparation for bigger responsibility. FOREIGN TRAINING. With the goal of being the best among others and being globally competitive, it is essential that the specialized skills and trainings attained by individuals are shared and applied to the organization. In today’s complex environment and much competition from various counterparts abroad, PCH personnel must possess efficiency in the different aspects of learning in order to be equally competitive with other students. Fluency in the international language is beneficial and can be considered an advantage particularly in better comprehension and communication. The Office CG-12 for Education and Training is tasked to recommend and select able and efficient candidates and PCG’s proponents to the various training abroad through the Education and Training Board (ETB) that assesses requirements, eligibility and determines the personnel’s training needs. The personnel’s capability to adjust to a foreign culture, as well as, foreign language capability reaches beyond the roles of linguistics, intelligence, analysts. Theses delivery strategies as well as the inherent professionalism, conduct, leadership skills, effective performance and competencies are key contributors in achieving quality output and identifying the future developments. By providing continuous personnel improvement through the various PCG leadership development programs, the Command is able to enhance the professional management quality of its personnel.

Flower Shop in Makati | Featured Flowers for the third week of August. 

 

 

For the month of August and for our featured flower of the week, we are featuring 3 flowers or blooms that match our current month. These are the Black Eyed Susan flowers, Bottle Gentian flower and the Dense Blazingstar flower.

 

For the first flower we are featuring, Black Eyed Susan is covered with brilliant yellow flowers with jet-black centers for up to three months in summer and fall, often right up to the first hard frost. Grows two-to-five feet tall. This plant is a favorite of many home gardeners. The species is a short-lived perennial, often living only two or three years. It produces copious amounts of seed and quickly re-seeds itself. It is also the State Flower of Maryland. For our second featured flower, the deep bluish purple flowers of Bottle Gentian never fully open, giving them their characteristic bottle-like appearance. Its shape prevents all but the largest insects from entering. Bumblebees force themselves inside by pushing the petals apart. One of the last plants to bloom in fall, it grows one-to-two feet tall. And for our last featured flower, the dense Blazing Star features bold purple flower clusters on tall spikes. The flowers are very attractive to butterflies and moths. The fluffy flowers bloom from top to bottom on the spikes which can reach six feet tall. Blooms burst forth in July and last into September.

 

Our flower shop in Makati, Yourflowerpatch features different flowers to educate you of different types of flowers and their respective symbolism. August in the philippines is the rainiest month (except on the eastern seaboard, Regions IVA (CALABARZON) and V (Bicol Region) where it’s the driest), you’ll probably get awesome discounts on tours and accommodation. Durian season, a popular fruit, begins in Mindanao and surf season launches in Siargao. Also did you know that august is history month in the philippines? History Month is observed in August by virtue of Proclamation No. 339 signed on Feb. 26, 2012 by then President Benigno Aquino III. By doing so, the proclamation moved History Week, previously observed from Sept. 15 to 21, to August and made it a month-long celebration.

Bureau of Immigration (BI) officers at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) recently barred from leaving the country seven undocumented overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) who attempted to depart in the guise of being tourists. BI Port Operations Acting Chief, Grifton Medina said the passengers were deferred to depart after being intercepted on separate occasions last week at NAIA Terminal 2 and 3.

“They were not allowed to leave after they admitted under questioning that they are not tourists but are actually going abroad to work,” He said. He reiterated his warning to those who intend to work overseas not to evade the travel requirements for OFWs by pretending to be tourists as “there is very little chance you will not be caught by our vigilant immigration officers at the airports.” Reports submitted by the Travel Control and Enforcememt Unit (TCEU) Head, Ma. Timotea C. Barizo to BI Commissioner Jaime Morente disclosed that two of the passengers were intercepted at NAIA 2 last Sept. 14 as they were about to depart for Hongkong. They were barred to depart after they were noticed traveling with a woman who is in the bureau’s alert list of suspected human traffickers facilitating the deployment of undocumented workers abroad. On Sept. 15, four Malta-bound “tourist workers” were apprehended at the NAIA 2 departure area after they presented questionable documents regarding the purpose of their travel. They initially claimed they were attending a symposium but later admitted during interview that they were hired to work as maids in Malta. They further alleged that each of them gave P500,000 to their handler in return for processing their travel documents and visas. Barizo also reported the interception last Sept. 17 of a Filipina bound for Istanbul, Turkey who was caught in possession of a fraudulent overseas employment certificate. All seven passengers were turned over to the NAIA Task Force Against Trafficking in Person (NAIATFAT) for further investigation.

When the Philippine Coast Guard separated from the Philippine Navy in 1998, its initial Corps of Officers is composed of men and women with multifarious backgrounds and areas of expertise. In order to cope with the personnel and material growth of the organization, the PCG started its own Officer procurement and Enlisted Personnel recruitment in 2000. The Coast Guard Education and Training Command served the purpose of providing the basic training and education needs of the new Officers and Enlisted Personnel. They were also cross-trained with other maritime training institutions to further enhance their knowledge and skills, thus allowing them to cope with the ever-developing standardization requirements of the maritime industry.

Yet, the continous growth of local and international shipping – the PCG’s main clientele demands that the organization further grow and expand in terms of men and materiel. Thus,.in its amended 15-Year Development Program, the PCG intends to reach a troop ceiling of 25,000 Officers and Enlisted Personnel by year 2020.

Giving emphasis to the critical role of Officers in steering the helm of leadership of the organization as envisioned by SECRETARY LEANDRO R MENDOZA, the Secretary of the Department of Transportation and Communications recently gave the impetus for the creation of a Philippine Coast Guard Academy and for such to be established within 5 years after its conception. The Philippine Coast Guard Academy is envisioned to become the source of Coast Guard Officers who will then help steer the organization to the next generation and beyond.

Having been granted the imprimatur, ADMIRAL WILFREDO D TAMAYO PCG Commandant, PCG sought the assistance of RADM FIDEL E DINOSO, President of the Philippine Merchant Marine Academy which is the country’s premier maritime training institution. With the proposed Memorandum of Understanding between PCG and PMMA, the latter agreed to accommodate 70 PCG Cadets annually for the next 2 years to join their Baccalaureate programs in Marine Transportation and Marine Engineering. This arrangement was reached considering necessary infrastructure, facility, faculty and support systems for the envisioned PCG Academy are being set up and organized. With this arrangement, the PCG shall pay the PMMA the full scholarship fee for each PCG Cadet trained by the PMMA.

Meanwhile, PCG Cadets who will be joining the PMMA Cadetship program shall benefit from the IMO-standard training facilities of the PMMA. The PCG is thus, assured of professional competence upon their completion of their courses and upon their eventual entry into the PCG service.

This was according to Bureau of Immigration port operations division chief Grifton Medina. This was in relation to Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) have intercepted 16 undocumented overseas Filipino workers who attempted to leave the country by disguising themselves as tourists. The full story is below .

PASAY, Philippines--Bureau of Immigration (BI) officers at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) have intercepted 16 undocumented overseas Filipino workers who attempted to leave the country by disguising themselves as tourists. In a report to Immigration Commissioner Jaime Morente, BI port operations division chief Grifton Medina said the passengers were intercepted in two batches at the NAIA 3 terminal last Aug. 7 as they were about to board their Cebu Pacific Airways flights to Taiwan and Hongkong. One batch consisted 12 of the passengers who were bound for Taipei while the other group of four passengers were bound for Hongkong. “They all confessed during questioning that they are not tourists and that they were hired to work abroad by illegal recruiters,” Medina said. Information obtained from BI-NAIA 3 travel control and enforcement unit (TCEU) chief Anthony Lopez revealed that the 12 Taipei-bound and mostly women passengers admitted that their final destination is the United Arab Emirates where they were recruited to work by a travel agency based in Manila. On the other hand, the four Hongkong-bound women confessed that they were going to Hongkong to process their visas to China where they were allegedly promised jobs by a FilipinoChinese businessman. All 16 passengers were turned over to the Inter-Agency Council Against Trafficking (IACAT) for investigation "These syndicates just won't stop," said Morente. "Many still attempt to leave in the guise of being tourists, some in fake group tours. We wish to warn our kababayan about this modus, do not fall for the sweet-talk of these illegal recruiters. They only want to profit at your expense," he warned.

The Bureau of Immigration (BI) deported a Korean fugitive wanted by authorities in his country for operating an illegal gambling website.

According to his report to Bureau of Immigration Commissioner Jaime Morente, Bureau of Immigration Port Operations Chief Grifton Medina identified the fugitive as 35-year-old Jung Hyeongwook, who left the country last Sept. 3 aboard a Philippine Airlines flight to Pusan. He further said Jung was deported a few days after he surrendered to the Korean embassy in Manila which earlier cancelled his passport. The passenger was reportedly issued a temporary travel document by the embassy to facilitate his departure and was later arrested upon his arrival in Korea.

MISSION STATEMENT

Tour of Duty: To promote safety of life and property at sea, safeguard the marine environment and resources, enforce all applicable laws within the Philippine waters, assist in maritime security operations, conduct search and rescue, and perform other activities in support of national development.

Mission Analysis

Tour of Duty: The major areas of government concerns under President Aquino’s administration are Transformational Leadership, Economy, Government Service, Gender Equality, Peace and Order, and Environment. Through transparent and accountable leadership, the PCG will continue to make itself more relevant as a multi-mission ma service-oriented organization. A sound economy will entail an efficient, safe, secure, environmentally-responsible and seamless maritime transportation system.

Hence, as a 24/7 seagoing agency, it is the inherent duty of the PCG to promote safety of life and property at sea. The unpredictable surge of weather caused by global climate change indicated the need for the PCG to further develop its capability as the premier maritime search and res. cue agency and at the same time, as a disaster response agency in support of the National Disaster Risk Reduction Management Council (NDRRMC) and the LGUs.

The Philippines being blessed with pristine beaches and awesome wonders of nature has become one of the prime tourist destinations in Asia. With the potential of the tourist industry to further enhance the economy of the country, there is a need to upgrade and maintain the security and integrity of our country and its marine environment. Thus, the PCG must be sufficiently manned, well-equipped and prepared to address both the traditional and emerging challenges.

As champions of the environment, the PCG continues to safeguard the country's rich marine resources from threats due to maritime accidents and other irresponsible uses of seas and other navigable waterways. Through effective law enforcement and enhanced security coverage along the country's ports, harbors, and maritime destinations, the PCG will make sure that terrorism, piracy and other forms of illegal activities have no place in our waterways and shores.

Through effective and sustained coordination and interoperability with the other armed services and agencies of the government, our country will be assured that unlawful groups are provided neither haven nor refuge. This will be realized through PCG's increasing capacity for Presence, Preparedness, Partnership, Professionalism, and Passion to serve.

In the light of these contemporaneous developments, the PCG is in process of upgrading, acquiring, and maintaining its modest capability through

CAPT HOLGER HORN PCGA

As Commandant of the Philippine Coast Guard from 01 June 2008 to 22 April 2011, ADMIRAL WILFREDO D TAMAYO PCG exhibited exemplary dedication to his sworn duty as he carried out efficiently and effectively his immense duties and responsibilities. Endowed with high sense of responsibility, professional competence, and technical expertise, ADMIRAL TAMAYO successfully steered the Philippine Coast Guard towards new direction. Leading the PCG to the right course brings the organization the following landmark accomplishments:  

  • Setting new direction results to the enactment of Republic Act 9993, otherwise known as the Philippine Coast Guard Law of 2009.
  • Awarding of Quality Management System (QMS/ISO 9001:2008 Certification to the Coast Guard Action Center. This makes the PCG the second Coast Guard in the world to be awarded such certification.
  • Imbued with administrative and operational expertise, ADMIRAL TAMAYO effectively led five (5) Major Support Commands, ten (10) Districts, fifty-five (55) Stations, three (3) Sub-stations and two hundred seven (207) Detachments towards the virtual attainment of the President’s Zero Casualty Program and relatedly, the SOTC’s Zero Maritime Accident Program.
  • Because of his strong commitment to carry out national policies, he immediately responded to the instruction of His Excellency President Benigno Simeon C. Aquino III during the onslaught of typhoon Basyang last 14 July 2010 for the PCG to study and develop procedures in notifying or recalling fishermen during severe weather conditions. He initiated the crafting of a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA), thru the assistance of the DOTC, and held a series of interagency meetings and workshops which led to the approval and signing of said MOA essential to harmonizing and integrating the efforts of 12 government departments and agencies to enhance the safety of fishermen.
  • Following the onslaught of typhoon “Frank” in 2008, the PCG, after extensive consultation with PAGASA, partner government agencies, maritime stakeholders and expert groups, developed and formulated an improved sailing regulation for vessels. With the enactment and implementation of PCG Memorandum Circular No. 01-09 entitled, “Guidelines on Movement of Vessels During Heavy Weather”, the new sailing regulation integrated crucial safeguards and innovations to further improve maritime safety in the country including a new PAGASA forecasting graphical representation for easy reference of shipping in every weather bulletin of areas to be avoided by vessels during weather disturbances or typhoons.
  • In response to the clamor of the people of Guimaras and Boracay Islands, and considering the unique topographical characteristic of the said areas, the PCG after extensive study, enacted PCG Memorandum Circular 02-10 or the Interim Guidelines on Movement of Vessels and Motorboats Engaged in Short Distance Voyages in Special Areas thereby providing a long time solution to the problem affecting the movement of the populace in the said areas without sacrificing the promotion of safety of life at sea.

5 Things You Need To Know About Liposuction

Liposuction is a body contouring or sculpting procedure

Liposuction is a body contouring or sculpting procedure, not a weight losing or weight reduction treatment. Depending on the area or the number of areas to be liposuctioned, only 2000cc to 3000cc of fat can be safely removed.

Liposuction and Obesity

If you are obese, you may be considered as a high risk candidate and may not qualify to undergo liposuction. The reason for this is that chronic medical conditions like diabetes, heart or coronary diseases,  metabolic problems, etc. may be present. Effects of liposuction in obese may also not be appreciable. It is therefore recommended that patients with BMI of 30 or greater need to lose some weight to qualify to undergo Liposuction.

Skin Rippling

Overzealous removal of fats may result to skin “rippling”. This is caused by excess fat removal making the skin very thin (having less fat) and thus cannula tracks under it become visible (the rippling or multiple wave effect). In our Centre, we make sure this complication is avoided by removing only enough fat.

Safety in Liposuction

It will be more safe if your Cosmetic Surgeon is board certified and has a background in General Surgery on top of his fellowship in Cosmetic/Aesthetic Surgery. This will put the surgeon in good position to avoid intra-operative accident of abdominal penetration in tummy liposuction.

Liposuction Laboratory Exams

Several laboratory (blood exams) and ancillary procedures (X-ray and ECG) are usually requested by the cosmetic surgeon prior to liposuction. A cardio-pulmonary clearance from a cardiologist or pulmunologist  is requested for those over 30 or 35 years of age. Those younger patients may undergo the same steps if the doctor find it necessary.

Test Tips For Multiple-Choice Psychology Exams

How to Take a Multiple-Choice Psychology Exam

By , About.com Guide

While multiple-choice exams may seem challenging, you can prepare yourself by understanding the structure of a multiple-choice test and how to approach these types of exams. Remember, the correct answer is right there in front of you! By carefully analyzing each question and choices offered, you can increase your chances of performing well on each multiple-choice test you take.

The Structure of a Multiple-Choice Question

Each question consists of just three parts:

    1. The first part a multiple-choice problem is the basic section that asks a question, gives and incomplete sentence, or poses a problem that you are expected to solve.

 

    1. The next part of the question is a number of distracting alternatives. These are the incorrect answers that are designed to test your true knowledge of the subject. Some of these alternatives may seem correct, so it is important to know the topic well to avoid selecting an incorrect answer.

 

  1. The final part of a multiple-choice problem is the correct answer to the question or problem that is posed.

 

MANILA, Philippines — The government has allocated P15 million for the H1N1 project of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) enabling the country to get a bigger chance of being represented in the global vaccine development.

By putting a strong focus on H1N1 vaccine, through its work in sequencing of the virus, the government is putting the Philippines in the map of the H1N1 vaccine development of the World Health Organization (WHO). While there may no longer be developments that highlight risks in another H1N1 epidemic, having its own vaccine ensures ready supply for its people.

NIH Dr. Edsel Maurice Salvana, H1N1 program project leader, said the H1N1 program of NIH has already sequenced 52 samples of the H1N1 virus from only six sequenced samples.

Prior to the program, the six sequenced samples even came from Australia since the Philippines previously did not have DNA sequencing capability.

Part of the program is acquisition of equipment for the sequencing capability including PCR polymerase chain reaction.

“We have to generate our own data, or there’s nothing that WHO will take into consideration when they’re deciding on what strains to cover for vaccine development,” said Salvana in an interview at the Philippine Council for Health Research and Development anniversary celebration.

H1N1 Vaccine Global Presence Eyed By MELODY M. AGUIBA March 19, 2012, 3:11am

“If the Philippines is not represented , our unique issues will not have a say in what will come out.”

The Philippines has already published information on all 52 samples with the Genbank, a global genetic sequence database.

This data present so much significance as the DNA sequencing will help determine if the Philippine population already has resistance to existing H1N1 drugs, particularly oseltamivir.

“If you’re caught with your pants down, and the only time you know there’s resistance to oseltamivir because a lot of people are failing therapy, then it may take some time before you can bring in another drug. What we’re doing is an early warning system,” Salvana said.

NIH is working with the Research Institute for Tropical Medicine (RITM) on a collaborative DNA sequencing work. RITM has been sequencing viral cultures, while NIH has been sequencing from virus taken directly from infected patients.

Since culturing takes time of two to three weeks before sequencing may be done, the collaborative work will involve real time sequencing.

“We’re not doing real time samples yet. We’re doing archive samples. We’ll do real time samples when we collaborate with RITM hopefully beginning next month,” he said.

Since many H1N1 virus strains in the world have already developed resistance to drug adamantine, the need now is to ensure that the Philippine H1N1 strains are not yet resistant to oseltamavir.
