Grab driver brings dengue patient to hospital for free, gives family extra Php1k



MANILA, Philippines – In a world where a lot of people are indifferent to others, with many motorists not even moving aside to let an ambulance pass, it is refreshing to hear stories of people who go out of their way to help others and save lives.
Grab driver brings dengue patient to hospital for free, gives family extra Php1k

In a post on Facebook, Jhane Espina shared a wonderful experience that she and her family had with a Grab driver while they were rushing her sister Janine to the hospital. While the trip was rather sad as they were bringing Janine to the hospital after she is suspected of having dengue, it warmed their hearts that their Grab driver was extra kind.

On September 18, 2019, Jhane and her family rushed Janine to the hospital. After learning that they needed to transport the dengue-stricken Janine to the hospital, Ronaldo Pillarina De Guzman decided not to collect fare from the family.

They were supposed to pay him Php310 for the trip, but this kind Grab driver refused to accept their payment. He knows that the family might need a lot of money to save Janine’s life; every peso certainly counts!

But he did not just give them a free ride to the hospital, because when they alighted the vehicle, De Guzman also gave them Php1,000 to help the family! While the family feels that the free trip was already a big help, De Guzman wouldn’t leave until they took the cash.

So, the family graciously accepted the offer. Then, as a way to thank this kind Grab driver and honor his gift to the family, Jhane shared screenshots from the Grab app showing his photos.

God bless you, Kuya!

“Since there is no allotted time for speech during the graduation program, I will make it up with this instead.

First and foremost, utmost praise and thanks to God for all the blessings and sustaining us through these 4 years. Whenever I hit a bump in this rough road to MD, I close my eyes and say a prayer and immediately feel comforted by Your love. May You use these hands of mine as instruments to heal those in need.

Medicine can be summed up by the following:

4 years – of hard work… to earn…

3 stripes – in our Togas.. to get…

2 letters – MD

1 dream – to become licensed physicians (coming soon)”

In the speech, he thanked the many people who had been instrumental in helping him graduate from his medical degree, including his batchmates.

Just like many students and workers in the medical field, Vien Christian and his batchmates missed a lot of special events and family time because they were busy with their studies and long duty hours; thus, he also thanked his family and friends for understanding this aspect of his life.

“I would also like to thank my family especially my parents for working tirelessly to provide me with the best this world has to offer, to send me to medical school despite already equipping me with tools essential to start a career as a pharmacist, to be there always behind believing in me and cheering me on forward. Thank you Ma, Dad and Chelsy. I love you all so much! I hope I made you proud,” Vien Christian added.

CIVIL SERVICE EXAM COVERAGE

The CSE-PPT is a general ability test designed to measure an individual’s preparedness to enter government service.

The Professional test lasted for 3 hours, 10 minutes, and for 2 hours, 40 minutes for the Subprofessional test. Visually impaired examinees, as well as the deaf and hard of hearing, were given an additional one (1) hour to accomplish the test.

The Professional Level has 150 test items in English and Filipino, and includes questions on numerical ability, analytical ability, verbal ability, as well as general information items such as on the Philippine Constitution, Code of Conduct and Ethical Standards for Public Officials and Employees (Republic Act No. 6713), peace and human rights issues and concepts, and environment management and protection.

"The List of Passers shall be uploaded/posted on the CSC website www.csc.gov.ph within 60 days after the examination," the bulletin stated.

OUR PROJECTION: Official results can be expected from September 23 (Monday) until October 11 (Friday) or in 50-68 working days. Since the total number of CS examinees rose this time, the assumption is CSC needs more days for the checking of results.

DepEd to send 200 teachers every year to teach English in Spain



MANILA, Philippines – The Department of Education (DepEd) confirmed recently its plan to send 200 Filipino teachers to Spain annually to become English language teachers.
DepEd plans to send 200 Filipino teachers to Spain annually to teach English

Last month, Education Secretary Leonor Briones met with Spanish Ambassador to the Philippines Jorge Moragas in a courtesy call. Among those discussed is the promotion and teaching of each country's languages.

Moragas expressed Spain’s interest to continue their Language Assistance Program (LAP) with the Philippine government. Spain’s LAP aims to enhance collaboration between the two countries on teacher training.

DepEd explained, through this program, “Spain shall hire around 200 teachers every year to teach the English language in Spain.”

RELATED STORIES

The Spanish government had long been conducting seminars for LAP participants but this time they want to choose public school teachers and partner with DepEd. They said that through this partnership, their seminars will be more organized and certified by the Philippine education agency.

DepEd added that the Spanish government is looking at initially sending 10 individuals from 2020 to 2021 for a pilot test of the program. A memorandum of understanding on the partnership is also being proposed.

The Spanish government also suggested that the teacher exchanges is truly beneficial to both countries, especially because the Philippines is already offering Spanish as a foreign language subject.

Briones welcomed Spain’s proposal and said, “We appreciate you for taking the initiative in visiting us and sharing the state of Spanish language teaching.”

The education secretary also mentioned how the program will help boost DepEd’s Special Program in Foreign Language (SPFL). Briones said they are considering to add Spanish to the special program.

She said, “We are here to talk about the teaching of Spanish as one of the seven languages for our high school students. I’ve read the MOU and I would be very happy to sign it now because it’s an extension of what we have done before.”

DepEd’s SPFL is a program designed for Grade 7 to 10 students who are already recognized to be competent in Filipino and Language. The program allows them to take extra subjects and learn another foreign language.

Apart from Spanish, the other foreign languages being offered are French, German, Chinese, Korean, and Japanese in select public schools.

Netizens help old bread vendor seen crying after cops impounded his motorcycle



MANILA, Philippines – An old bread vendor whose motorcycle was impounded by cops because he didn’t have a driver’s license found help from netizens after his sad plight went viral.
Netizens help old bread vendor seen crying after cops impounded his motorcycle

Last September 18, 48-year-old Tatay Ruel Leong from Bacong, Negros Oriental, woke up early to sell bread from his motorcycle. His wife had just recently given birth to their baby and he knew he had to earn money for his family.

But while selling bread in Sibulan, two towns away from his hometown, he was apprehended by Philippine National Police Highway Patrol Group (PNP-HPG) for not having a license, among other violations.

Though he explained that he couldn’t really afford to get a license because he only earns very little per day, the HPG was also just doing its job in apprehending those who violate the law. And while Tatay Ruel needs the motorcycle to sell his bread, they also had to impound it because he didn’t have a driver’s license.

Tatay Ruel admitted that he knows he needs a license to drive a motorcycle, but this is his only means of earning a living and he can’t afford the hefty fees in getting one. He now has the added problem of where he could find money to pay the fines.

Moreover, he only had Php200 in sales that morning – and his bread would go to waste now that he doesn’t have a motorcycle to use in selling the items. Taking pity on this hardworking dad, local news station DYWC RMN DGTE based in Dumaguete shared his story on their Facebook page. It was announced that the cops brought him to Sibulan PNP station where netizens could buy his bread.

Learning about Tatay Ruel’s dilemma, several netizens immediately went to the police station to help him out by buying his bread. It didn’t take a couple of hours for his bread to be sold out.

But aside from getting help in selling the bread, Tatay Ruel received more help from netizens. Some minutes after the post went viral, netizen Jhae Calma offered financial assistance from a riders’ charity group in Mindanao.

“I am Jhae of Charity Riders for one Mindanao, it came to my attention when my wife tagged me about this tatay who crossed my timeline early today, may I ask where I can reach this tatay and what police station or HPG station so we can talk to the chief of HPG so we can pay the penalties and help tatay register his motorcycle and help him back on the road for his daily living,” Calma commented on the page.

Not only will the riders pay for his fines, they will also sure he won’t get caught again by also getting him a license and register his motorcycle, if needed.

More help also poured in as netizens brought food for Tatay Ruel and his family.

While many netizens pointed out that the cops were only doing their job in apprehending those who violate the law, it is wonderful that the community came together for this poor vendor.

PHOTOS: Guy builds beautiful tiny home using a container van



There’s a growing trend these days for tiny homes, with many made from container vans. These are quicker and easier to build because the main structure is already complete; though you still have to make provisions for cutting out portions for the doors and windows, among other necessary things.
PHOTOS: Guy builds beautiful tiny home using a container van

One guy recently went viral for building a tiny house from a container van he got. Amiel Colesio shared the progress on Facebook, making a lot of people wish they could also have the same thing at their place.

Colesio wrote on his Facebook account, posting photos to proudly share his tiny but impressive dream home:

“Tiny House

I've been addicted to tiny houses na napapanuod ko sa YouTube at nakikita ko sa fb [ Facebook]. Hehe. Siguro nakakita na rin kayo at nangarap na magkaroon nun. Isa na ako dun!

Medyo di lang ako kumain ng onti para makaipon pang bili ng mga materyales pero syempre di ko rin 'to makukumpleto kung di ko pinilit tatay ko. Haha. "ipaparenta ko kasi, pa" 😂

#TinyHouse #Goals #Achieved #LumangContainer #RecycledHome”

Proving that he started from scratch, began with a photo of himself outside the container van. It was clearly not brand new as it had plenty of dents and even some holes, but this young man would soon transform this shipping container into a dreamy home.

While he did not detail out how he managed to transform the container van into a home, he showed photos of its progress. For instance, cement appears to be used in building the kitchen area and providing insulation on the walls. Cement was also poured on the floor.

Rectangular holes were cut out from the shipping container for the huge sliding windows and the door. One portion of the house was set for the living room that doubles as bedroom that Colesio would later furnish with a sofa bed.

The upper part of the container was fitted with railings to transform the area into a second-floor roof garden. After the floorboards were added and finishing touches were placed on the walls, Colesio managed to create a small but beautiful home! No wonder his post went viral.
