Around five to eight tropical cyclones are expected to hit the Philippines from June to August even though the dry spell brought about by El Niño may persist until the end of the year, state weather bureau PAGASA said Wednesday.

PAGASA deputy administrator Flaviana Hilario said the rainy season for the western side of the country will begin in the first half of June.

"And in terms of our forecast on the number of tropical cyclones, from June to August we are expecting around 5 to 8 tropical cyclones," Hilario said at a news conference in Malacañang.

She said normal rainfall conditions will be experienced in many parts of the country in June except for Apayao, most parts of Ilocos Region, Cagayan, Tarlac and Zambales.

Hilario said generally near normal to above normal rainfall conditions will be experienced in most of Luzon and Visayas in but generally below normal over most of Mindanao and Southern Visayas in July.

For August, generally near to above normal rainfall conditions will prevail over most parts of the country, she said.

4Ps Beneficiary sa Apayao, binigyan ng biik

Hindi maikukubli sa likod ng facemask ang galak ni Manang Marietta mula sa Brgy. Laco, Kabugao, Apayao nang makatanggap siya ng biik mula kay SLP PDO Roma Joy Olivar.

Ang nasabing biik ay donasyon ni Roma at ng kanyang pamilya para sa pamilya ni Manang Marietta na kabilang sa Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program.

Nag-ambag ambag sila Roma at ang kanyang pamilya ng malaman na hindi nabili ni Manang Marietta ang hiling na biik ng kanyang anak na PWD.

Ang pagkadismaya at lungkot ay napalitan ng abot langit na pasasalamat dahil sa mabuting kalooban ni Roma at ng kanyang pamilya.

Kudos kay Roma Joy Olivar at sa kanyang pamilya!

Cordillera-  The municipality of Mankayan, Benguet and Luna, Apayao  were chosen by the Department of Information and Communication Technology (DICT) as the rural impact housing hub in the Cordillera region.

The two chosen municipalities  will benefit from the DICT's program to improve the internet connectivity that encourage the  emergence of technology-based entrepreneurs and internet-based businesses as well as the improved transactions of the local government. 

The purpose of this program is to help individuals earn a decent income and improve the living conditions of families most especially those from the remote villages of the municipality.

"We will surely take advantage of this opportunity being provided by the DICT so that we will be able to lobby for the improved connectivity in the municipality which will be beneficial to all our constituents even those from the remote villages," the mayor of Mankayan, Frenzel Ayong said.

A required training center  will be established by the local government providing at least 25 computers and other  needed facilities.  Likewise, the DICT  is incharged of sending  competent trainers to help  the trainees who are interested in online entrepreneurship.

The honorable mayor of Mankayan, who just attended the DICT workshop in Clark, Pampanga  said that the training will prioritize the locals with disabilities, single parents and other marginalized groups although it will be open on a first come, first serve basis.

Ayong affirmed that appropriate screening will be done by the concerned offices of the municipal government so that appropriate guidance and training will be given to those who seriously want to commit in building and sustaining an online business or online jobs. 

He also mentioned that the municipality of Mankayan will work closely with the Lepanto Consolidated Mining Company and the Far Southeast Goldfields Resources Inc. in the implementation of this program.  

These mining companies  will be sharing their resources on their social development and management project. The local government can greatly benefit from these companies' sustainable implementation of the noble project that aims in providing guaranteed livelihood  to local residents who are interested to work at home.

Moreover, Ayong imposed that the DICT  will do its part in coordinating with telecommunication companies to improve their internet signals so that online entrepreneurs can do their online jobs successfully and efficiently.

Members of the Cordillera Peoples Alliance (CPA) on Tuesday picketed the National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) Cordillera office to call for the suspension of the Chico River Pump Irrigation Project.

The groups gathered in front of the NEDA office while officials of regional government agencies met to discuss the free prior and informed consent (FPIC) of the project.

More than 7,500 hectares of rice farms in the towns of Tuao and Piat in Cagayan province, and 1,170 ha in Pinukpuk, Kalinga province were expected to benefit from the irrigation project, according to the National Irrigation Administration.

The protesters alleged that the proponents of the P4.37-billion project violated the indigenous peoples' rights.
