GRADWASYON

kinapungkayan sa mga damgo,
kalamposan sa kahibalo,
linikit nga diploma,
pudyot nga medalya,
balos kini’s kahago nga nabuntagan,
abotanan sa hagip-ot nga agianan,

luyo sa gabiing nangandila,
hadla sa katimawa,
kalisdanan nga nagbaha,
luyo ning pagsulay’ng daw lawalawa,
sa gradwasyon,
katagbawan sa hinaguan imong makuha.

Featured Balak: SELFIE

SELFIE
by Atty James Lobedica

binag-ong eningles sa kinaugalingon,
unay nga pagtion sa dul-it nga pahiyom,

paklarohay sa kunot ug mug-ot
plastada sa panagway’ng manghuot,

tutok sa nawong nga dili matuis
may hamis, may baga ug may nipis

panagway’ng ipatapot sa hulagway,
manghulma ug magdalag kalipay,

mangunay, sa kaugalingon manaway
ilabi na’g wala pay hilam-os ug panudlay,

kining tanan pilit nimong dawaton,
sa selfie ikaw pailhon sa tinuod nga katahom,

Cadet Cudia has what it takes to be a loyal, honorable soldier of the people

Cadet Cudia has what it takes to be a loyal, honorable soldier of the people
By Dionesio Grava
First Posted in ireport.cnn.com

The grossly underhanded manner authorities and the cadet body of the Philippine Military Academy regarding l’affaire Cudia is symptomatic of the arrogance and contempt those in the military hierarchy perceive the civilian populace. Spawned by the unmitigated licentiousness and profligacy of the Marcos dictatorship, many of those in the uniformed services had gone berserk with whatever pretensions of honorable moorings and had turned their greed and cruelty on the unarmed people who were responsible for shouldering their livelihoods and upkeep in the first place. It has been years now since the dictatorship was dealt a death blow by an aroused citizenry but has all its evil vestiges been wiped off as well?

NANGUMPISAL SI DONG TIBOR

“Sige na mangumpisal man kaha ka Dong Tibor.” pulong sa pari.

“Unsaon ko man niini Padre nga dili man ko kapugong sa pagkahimabaye. Nakonsyensya na kaayo ko. Gihasol na kaayo ko sa akong tanlag. Luoy na kaayo ko’s akong asawa.” mabasolong pamulong ni Dong Tibor, ang numero unong mangtas sa pagka tsekboy sa Junquera.

“Salamat Dong Tibor nga nakaamgo ka sa imong kabadlongon. Hala, Dali sugdi na ning mosunod nga pangadyeon nimo aron mahugasan ka sa imong mga sala. Mahunong na imong kahimabaye. Makapalit ka na pud ug purol, unsaon gasige ka na man lang ug hatod sa imong kinitaan sa pagkakargador sa imong bisyo. Gasige ka na man lang ug yampungad sa kidlapkidlap.” nataas ang maymay sa pari ngadto ni Dong Tibor.

Art of ‘errorism’

A world-class performer cannot help but wince when someone sings out of tune. Athletes frown at an extra slice of pizza and a chocolate bar that mere mortals devour unburdened by the thought of calorie count and body fat. Writers have their own pet peeves — the dreaded typo errors, letters missing or added, that lead readers astray and authors embarrassed.

On Facebook, a friend of mine wrote about a man who killed his wife because of a dreaded typo. The man’s neighbor and good friend texted him to say: “I am deeply sorry for using your wife without permission. Mine wasn’t available so I had to use yours, but it was only for a brief moment. It won’t happen again.”

BINUHATAN SA EKSPERTO ANG PAGKAWALA SA ABYON SA MALAYSIA UG MGA PASAHERO

By all accounts, the prospect of ever seeing the crew and passengers alive is getting dimmer and dimmer as rundown analysis of experts worldwide validates a possible hijack that triggered the plane of malaysia airlines to disappear.

The person or persons who pulled off the mind-boggling incident, utilized not only aviation expertise but also spectacular knowledge in communication techniques by switching off the plane’s capability to be detected by radar a few minutes before it went off the monitoring system.

We’ll just hope and pray that its current location can be traced through bits and pieces of information reaching the table of investigators.

HAGIT: “HONOR CODE” ONLY A MYTH???

“HONOR CODE” ONLY A MYTH???

True and honest observance of the much-vaunted “Honor Code” will absolve the military institution from any and all allegations of corruption and shenaniganism.

The sad thing is that, charges against recalcitrant military officers and men have remained rampant in our country. We have noted henchmen in the ranks of the military causing the disappearance of media practitioners and read in the papers highly publicized investigation covering the overpriced purchase of military hardware and equipment, not to mention the conviction of a general in the Sandiganbayan.

KUWAIT CITY, Feb 2: “We will be implementing various reforms at the Philippine Overseas Labour Office (POLO) to safeguard the welfare of the wards in the Filipino Workers Resource Center (FWRC) and to uphold the general welfare of Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) in Kuwait,” stated Philippine Labour Attache to Kuwait Atty.

Life in Basilan

I read a news story about South Sudan. Warring political factions have resorted to excessive violence, sparing no one even those in the intensive critical unit of a hospital. They shot hospital patients dead and even razed an entire hospital to the ground. It was brutal, the doctors who were on duty, said.

Stories such as these should serve as a reminder on how fortunate we Filipinos are. While peace and order remains a major concern, we are still able to freely go around and stay out late, as long as we know how to take care of ourselves.

This has not always been the case for Nurkisa Alidain, a resident of Lamitan, Basilan. Fifty-year old Nur works as assistant to the provincial administrator in the provincial capitol. I met Nur during a summit of civil society organizations on the Framework Agreement on the Bangsamoro and its Annexes held in Davao City.

MAY DILI MAKITANG MGA KAMOT NGA NAGKUMOT KUMOT KARON SA TINUOD MAHITUNGOD SA PDAF???

There can be more plausible reasons than plainly alleging the unavailability of Atty. Levito Baligod as cause for his unceremonious departure from the raging issues that delve into the truth of what the Filipino people have known to be PDAF, the mother of all scams.

HUY-AB

Magnganga ang baba
Uban sa mata’ng pinaduka,
Mogawas kini sa kakapoy,
Sagad makita sa tawong lapoy,
Sa mga tudlo maghamoy,
Magyaka ug mangandoy,

ang kagutom ipaagi’g huy-ab,
timaan sa tiyan nga naghilab
sa kalaay kon yam-iran ug uyab
mohangad, moduko, manghuy-ab
hungaw’ng bulsa, dili makasikad
pastang mingawa, huy-ab, huy-ab
