Cebuano Humor: Himalatyon

HIMALATYON

Ang pari nag-atiman sa katapusang mga gutlo sa usa ka tawo nga himalatyon.

Gihunghungan sa pari ug kusog ang himalatyon, “Karon kon gusto ikaw nga MALANGIT, imo’ng isalikway si satanas! Isiyagit sa tibuok kalibutan nga mingbulag ka na kaniya.”

Ang himalatyon wala motubag. .

Cebuano Short Story: PAKUYOGA GYUD INTAWON KO

Ang paglaum mohatag ug kabaskog sa panghunahuna, timaan nga adunay mapaabot luyo sa kangitngit ug problemang namugna. Ikaw, ako, kitang tanan, manginahanglan ug angayan nga maghupot ug paglaum. Matag tabil sa mga pagsuway, adunay magpaluyong dalan sa kalipay, kini ang paglaum.

Si Ontat namulong sa iyang pagpamisita, “Day, tagai intawon ko ug higayon nga makahatag sa akong kainit diha kanimo. Taga-i ko ug paglaum.”

When religion comes in conflict with one’s job – Atty JBJ

Source: DIRECT FROM THE LABOR FRONT By Atty Josephus Jimenez

How easy it is for employers to say that an employee should render unto his work what rightfully pertains to his job, and to his church what properly belongs to his religion. That dictum is, of course, easier said than done. But down there in the offices or in the factories, where “the rubber hits the road”, so to say, it is quite difficult to keep a just and legal balance between the demands of one’s job, on the one hand, and the often immutable articles of faith of one’s church, on the other hand. Where do we draw the thin line that pulls one to one direction as an employee, and to the opposite pole as a member of a religious sect?

Cebuano Short Story: ANG SORPRESA NI TIRSO

Adunay pulong nga makapadasig ug makapaluag, gamiton kini agi ug pasalig nga kuno dili molubad, mga bituon sa langit ihalad. Ang imposible himoong posible. Mo kini ang saad.

“Naunsa ba kining hitaboa Ason nga hangtud karon wala pa man gayud maugkat gikan sa kalapokan ang atong agianan, nagkatag ang mga basura, walay nag-atiman. Niadtong milabayng piniliay gisaaran ta nga taposon kuno ang problema natong tanan.” dala panghupaw nga pamulong ni Tirso. Bag-o pa lamang gayud siyang nakauli gikan sa trabahoan. Medyo nadugay ang iyang pagpauli karong gabhiona. Nagsagol ang kagutom sa iyang tiyan ug kakapoy nga iyang nabatyagan.

Family dynasty in the workplace – Atty JBJ

Source: DIRECT FROM THE LABOR FRONT By Atty Josephus Jimenez

It is not only in politics but also in the workplace that family dynasties do rule in our country and anywhere in Asia and the world. Business corporations that are owned and managed by family members present an interesting area of study and inquiry in human resource management and labor relations. Based on empirical data and anecdotal evidence gathered by this writer in various conglomerates and group of companies that are owned and controlled by families, there are significant patterns of leadership and management styles that do affect human behavior in business organizations.

Human resource managers, personnel directors and other HR practitioners, as well as labor leaders and DOLE administrators and their staff, may be interested to know why workers are finding it more difficult to cope with work and management pressures that are

Employees should learn how to manage their income – Atty JBJ

Source: DIRECT FROM THE LABOR FRONT By Atty Josephus Jimenez

One of the most perplexing phenomena confronting our employees, including OFWs today, and perhaps at all times, is the sad reality that their incomes, no matter how much, are never enough. Whether that employee is a top ranking corporate executive or a lowly minimum earner, the endemic problem that cuts across salary levels, and breaks borders of ranks, status and positions, is that salaries are never sufficient. Expenses always exceed incomes. Whether he is employed in the business world or in the government bureaucracy, every employee always faces the perennial problem of budget deficit and mounting debts. What is the cause of all these?

Most wage-earners, regardless of ranks and positions, have to grapple with the recurrent challenge of insufficient income. No matter how much an employee earns, the payables always exceed the

Patnubay Leaks: The Jameel Mabanto Story

Noong September 29, 2010, isinama po ako ng Center for Migrant Advocacy (CMA) sa orientation seminar ng DFA OUMWA at OWWA para sa mga Foreign Service Officers nila. Nagkaroon po ako ng tsansa na makapagsalita at masabi ang aking hinanakit laban sa DFA at embahada ng Riyadh.

Inamin at sinabi ni Atty Rico Fos (Special Assistant to Usec Conejos) sa akin at sa mga attendees na maraming lapses ang OUMWA at Embassy officers sa paghandle ng aking kaso. Dagdag pa Atty Fos, “We owe him an apology!”.

Nagpapasalamat ako na alam nila ang kanilang pagkakamali. Pero hindi po sapat yon para sa aking mga hinaing. Hindi lang po yon ang kahilingan na sinabi ko sa harapan nila. Heto po ang aking sinabi doon at kayo na po ang bahalang umintindi.
