MAGANES: How telcos and banks are duping us


vir
 
With the popularity of cellphones and tablets in today’s communication technology, many consumers subscribe to the services of telecommunications companies (telcos) by either using postpaid or prepaid services. There are three major telcos operating in the country- Globe Telecom that also operates TM, Smart Communications that also operates Talk and Text and Sun Cellular, and Philippine Long Distance Telephone Company (PLDT). All these major players sell services for internet use of Wi-Fi (wireless fidelity), SIM cards, etc. They compete with each other by providing promotional services to their subscribers.
 
However, have you ever wondered how your bills bloat or your prepaid loads get lost?
 I have a very sad experience with Globe Telecommunications services. In 2015, I subscribed to the use of Wi-fi from Globe. Part of that subscription was a free phone (old Huawei with keypad) with a pre-loaded SIM card. Since I am already a prepaid user of Globe, (I also use a prepaid Smart SIM card), I did not use the free phone to avoid additional charges to my subscribed Wi-Fi services. From 2015 up to January 2017, I was religiously paying my Wi-Fi services. For the free phone not being used, I was billed more or less P4.00 monthly. However, surprise of all surprises, last November and December 2016, that free phone yielded bills of P694.20 and P689.72, respectively. I called the attention of Globe Telecommunications through its Twitter account “talk2Globe” and complained of the said billings. I told them that I was not using the free phone given to me besides the phone is obsolete, not a touch screen or smartphone.
 
Now, here’s the rub.

 EDITORIAL: Sasabak muli ang mga pulis sa laban kontra droga


 Tokhang, ikalawang yugto? Tila ito ang mangyayari pagkatapos na nagbigay na ng order si Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte sa Philippine National Police (PNP) na ipagpatuloy na nila ang paglaban kontra sa ilegal na droga sa bansa. Matatandaan na sa nakaraan buwan ng Enero, tinanggal ang operasyon laban sa droga sa PNP dahil sa pagkadawit ng mga opisyal nito sa pag-kidnap at pagpatay sa negosyanteng Koreanong si Jee Ick Joo. Dahil dito, sinimulan ang paglilinis sa hanay ng mga pulis sa bansa. Ang laban sa droga ay ibinigay sa pamunuan ng Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) at Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP).
 
Kulang diumano ang mga tauhan ng PDEA kaya ang operasyon sa laban sa droga ay ibinalik sa PNP. Isa pang dahilan ay ang pamamayagpag muli ng mga “drug lords” at “drug pushers” sa kanilang ilegal na gawain. Natuwa sila sa pagsuspendi ng Operation Tokhang at sinamantala nila ang pagkakataon na magbenta ulit ng droga lalo na ng “shabu” sa mga gumagamit nito.
 
Sa pagbabagong anyo ng “Tokhang” sa ilalim ng PNP, mayroon bang inaasahang pagbabago ? Mayroon, ayon kay Chief PNP Ronald “Bato” Dela Rosa. Nang bumisita siya sa Pangasinan noong Marso 2 sa pasinaya ng bagong gusali ng PNP sa bayan ng Laoac, sinabi ni Dela Rosa na hinihintay lang niya ang “feedback” ng mga hepe ng pulis sa rehiyon at mga probinsiya upang maisagawa na niya ang paglaban muli sa droga. Ayon pa sa kanya, ipagpatuloy pa rin ang paglilinis sa hanay ng mga tauhan sa PNP at ang paglaban sa droga ay hahawakan ng mga pulis na ang kanilang “integridad ay hindi mapapasubalian.”

CORTEZ: Your goodness cannot protect you


brando-maso
PERLAS NG PAGSILBI SA BAYAN. May nilalang na pinili ang magsisilbi sa mga mahirap sa kanayunan, pero pinatay.
 
Ang pinatay ay isang Anak ng Aklan na si Doctor Drey Perlas.
 
Isang iskolar ng bayan para maging doctor at nang makapasa ay naging doctor to the barrios.
 
Nagsilbi siya bilang doctor sa bayan ng Sapad, Lanao Del Norte.
 
Isang bayan na walang doctor na gustong maging municipal health officer sa loob ng 12 years.
 
Pinili ni doctor Drey na pagsilbihan at bigyan ng medical attention ang Christian, Muslim at iba pang katutubo sa Mindanao.
 
Puede naman niyang piliin na maging municipal health officer ng sariling bayan niyang Batan sa probnsiya ng Aklan, pero pinili niya ang Mindanao.
 
Pinatay siya matapos niyang mangaling sa isang medical mission.

MUSIC SUMMIT HELD IN DAGUPAN 


DAGUPAN CITY – Thousands of children simultaneously sang and played guitar and performed musical renditions along with the Philippine Pops Orchestra and University of Sto. Tomas Conservatory of Music in a grand concert held at CSI Stadia during the culmination program of the 2nd Children Summit on March 1.

Mayor Belen T. Fernandez led the closing program along with Schools Division Superintendent Froserfina J. Bravo, Rodolfo “Pong” Mendoza, the city’s music consultant who helped organized the summit.

The mayor expressed her gratitude to the men and women of the UST Conservatory of Music and the Philippine Pops Orchestra in performing before the people of Dagupan.

“Nothing elates me more than to feel that for two days, we stood shoulder to shoulder with some of the finest artists of the country and that we share in the wonderful belief that it would be a great tragedy if we lived in a world where music was not taught to children,” said Fernandez.

 Fernandez added that through the Music Summit, the city was able to express its love and affection to the children.

 “This is the heart of our agenda for the children of Dagupan, with the end in view that we must prepare what our children want to be,” she said.

 Fernandez believes that even the slightest positive influence has the potential to change a child’s life. (more…)
