22 Years After Marcos


Monday marks 22 years since the fall of dictator Ferdinand Marcos and although the economy has improved the lives of many, politics remains dominated by money, patronage and corruption, analysts say.

With the media often drawing comparisons between Marcos and the current President Gloria Arroyo, analysts believe people have become disillusioned with a political system that is fundamentally flawed and only benefits the few.

Will Gloria Survive?


Blogger Mon Casiple suggests,

Malacañang is scrambling for the initiative. Mobilization by friendly LGU units are being planned, sprinkled by a few pro-GMA NGOs and church personalities. A media offensive has been launched–against Lozada, JDV, the opposition, and even against Vice-President Noli de Castro. The de Castro media attack seeks to prevent a possible de Castro defection that can fundamentally undermine GMA’s chances of survival.

Jun Lozada's Prayer After the La Salle Mass Initiated by Former RP Pres. Cory Aquino


When the prayer, "Today I start the Change I Want to See," was recited to Rodolfo Noel Lozada Jr. before his testimony at the Senate on the NBN scandal, he felt that the world became silent, "and these are the only words that I could hear:"
    "Lord, let me be the change I want to see

    To do with strength and wisdom

    All that needs to be done

    And become the hope that I can be.

    Set me free from my fears and hesitations.

    Grant me courage and humility.

    Fill me with spirit to face the challenge

    And start the change I want to see.

    Today, I start the change I want to see.

    Even if I’m not the light, I can be the spark.

    In faith, service and communion

    Let us start the change we want to see,

    The change that begins in me."

Canada's 1.9 Million Jobs (High School Graduates Can Apply)


Canada's robust economy offers good job opportunities to skilled workers and professionals from the Philippines and other countries through the permanent and temporary migration schemes. The Provinces in Canada have adopted the Provincial Nominee Program to facilitate the entry of immigrants to its labor force.

The Human Resources and Social Development Canada has reported that 1.9 million new jobs will be created over the next decade (2006 – 2015) particularly in the Western provinces of Canada such as Alberta, British Columbia, Saskatchewan and Manitoba.

British Columbia

In British Columbia, US $130 billion worth of projects and construction are on-going in Vancouver, partly due to the requirements of the forthcoming 2010 Winter Olympics, but mainly due to the huge economic growth of British Columbia. For the Winter Olympics in 2010, an additional 22,000 to 24,00 temporary workers will be needed. There will be a demand for 30,000 permanent workers per year for the next twelve years in the hotel and restaurant and services sectors. The health, transport and mining industries are also experiencing skills shortages.

Manitoba

Manitoba needs manpower across various sectors. There is a demand for caregivers and nannies, truck drivers, welders, machinists, boilermakers, sheet metal workers, glaziers, pipe fitters, mechanics, plasterers/ drywall installers, carpenters/ cabinetmakers, bricklayers / stone masons.

Alberta

The sudden surge in labor demand in Alberta is largely oil and gas propelled. Canada is reputed to have oil reserves in its tar sands much more than what the Gulf countries have. The province of Alberta alone has estimated oil reserves of about 375 billion barrels, or approximating that of Saudi Arabia.

Skills in demand in Alberta include physicians, dentists and veterinarians (5,000 workers for the period 2006-2016), facility operation and maintenance managers (up to 3,908 people by 2016), other engineers: industrial and manufacturing, metallurgical and materials, mining, geological, petroleum, aerospace, computer (except software) and other professional engineers, other elemental service occupations: dry cleaning and laundry occupation, ironing, pressing and finishing occupation, other elemental service occupations, central control and process operators in manufacturing and processing, technical occupations in computer and information systems, pharmacists, dietitians, nutritionists, managers in primary production (except agriculture).

Saskatchewan

Saskatchewan targets to bring in 5,000 immigrants by 2008. The Saskatchewan Immigration Nominee Program (SINP) has posted the following skills in demand for the province: skilled workers, entrepreneurs, farmer owner/operator, health professionals, long haul truck drivers, heavy duty equipment family restaurant cooks, mechanics/technicians, industrial painters, sandblasters.

APPROVED JOB ORDERS

POEA's government placement facility has no job openings for Canada. There are about 109 POEA-licensed private recruitment agencies that have approved job orders for registered employers/principals in Canada for the recruitment of skilled workers and professionals in the various industries. Interested applicants may apply with these licensed recruitment agencies or search for job orders at our website www.poea.gov.ph.

NO PLACEMENT FEE POLICY

The general public is advised further that Canadian laws and regulations in these provinces prohibit the charging of recruitment and placement fee from workers seeking employment in Manitoba, British Columbia, Saskatchewan and Alberta provinces of Canada or from workers under the Pilot Project of the Canadian Government regardless of the province of destination in Canada.

The Pilot Project of the Government of Canada for the hiring of foreign workers in occupations usually require a high school diploma or a maximum of 2 years of jobspecific training (level C and D). The prevailing policy requires the Canadian employers to cover all recruitment costs related to the hiring of the foreign workers under the project.

The POEA has issued Memorandum Circular No.03 (series of 2007) on the "non-placement fee" policy for Canada for this purpose.

30,000 Jobs in Canada

POEA Advisory for OFWs for Canada

Job orders for Canada are available at DOLE-POEA licensed recruitment agencies with accredited principals/employers. Interested applicants may apply with these licensed recruitment agencies or search for job orders at POEA's website.

Kapamilya Blood Bulletin

Blood is a specialized bodily fluid (technically a tissue) that is composed of a liquid called blood plasma and blood cells suspended within the plasma. The blood cells present in blood are red blood cells (also called RBCs or erythrocytes), white blood cells (including both leukocytes and lymphocytes) and platelets (also called thrombocytes). Plasma is predominantly water containing dissolved proteins, salts and many other substances; and makes up about 55% of blood by volume. Mammals have red blood, which is bright red when oxygenated, due to hemoglobin. Some animals, such as the horseshoe crab use hemocyanin to carry oxygen, instead of hemoglobin.
