Summer coolant in the heart of the city.These stakeholders for the next generation are seemingly not mindful of the hot election week, but they are all
enjoying the cool Olympic-size swim pool which the Capitol is opening for everybody to cool themselves this
summer. This is a daily swimming spree at the Capitol Aqua Pool with a very modest swimming fee for swim
lessons and scuba diving sessions.
Government has warned some 700 local candidates for various positions in Negros Oriental to lay
their hands off from pro-poor funded programs of DSWD and other agencies among others
and refrain from using it for their electoral advantage on May 9.
This came close to the criticism of the opposition
who claim that government is liable for electioneering
favoring administration candidates by distributing
billions of pesos in the guise of governmentfunded

funds for the poor by government, only administration candidates are invited to the discrimination of the
opposition. They said such funds are owned by the

We agree with social media that the sentiment of
the coming election of May 9 is: “anything but the
status quo, a grievance and protest vote.”
But of course it doesn’t mean that we won’t be
reelecting people who deserve it. That appears to be
the trend. But it can change like the weather anytime.
Money talks baya, --even to the blind.
By anything but the status quo means mostly
anything but the bad ways we ran things, like
straightening daang matuid made crooked by
implementers themselves. The intention was good,
but there was poor leadership so straight road went
crooked, in many ways but not all.
DIGONG DUTERTE: for instance.
Why of all presidentiables, he appears to be liked
Because he can connect with ordinary people who
think, act, and behave like him. So what else can you
expect but birds flocking with the same feather.
GRACE POE: is clean, and she sports the foundling
daughter of the movie idol of the masses who is
long dead, but appears to have been cheated in his election,
thus, this grievance vote.
Except for daily mudslingings,

to know, clear-cut, what are the plans
for the next six years of LD and AD,
that is Lupad Dumaguete and Abante

re-electionists who have yet to present
a clear picture of what they want to

From the people: we want LD and
AD to tell us their planned solutions to the city’s major problems which
until now are not yet very clear.

There is not, herein, the least
improper intention entertained,
much less any ill will promoted

Biophilia and ecopsychology I came across these
two words – biophilia
and ecopsychology –
in my readings several
years ago in one of my favorite
books. When I
looked in the dictionary to
check their meanings, to
my surprise these two
words weren’t in my dictionary!
