Bleaching
occurs when heat- or

algae from coral tissues, leaving corals
with a whitish colour.
The algae provide most of the

BALMACEDA for his invaluable role in the establishment of the Asian Development Bank
(ADB) headquarters in the Philippines.
Both resolutions were introduced by Senator FRANKLIN DRILON.
The Senate said it “expresses its highest respect and appreciation” for Magsaysay-Ho’s
contribution to the development of Philippine
arts and culture.
“It also recognizes former Commerce
and Industry Secretary Balmaceda for his selfless and able representation of the Philippines
in several important capacities leading to the
establishment of the Asian Development Bank
as well as his invaluable role in the location of
the ADB headquarters in the Philippines,” the
Senate Resolution added.
Balmaceda lobbied to have the ADB
headquarters in Manila. He won the support
of eight other Asian countries, namely China,
Vietnam, Iran, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Sri Lanka,
Malaysia and Thailand. On December, 1965,
Manila prevailed over Tokyo as the ADB’s permanent site, winning by just one vote.
“The Filipino people owes a debt of gratitude to former Secretary Balmaceda for his
nationalistic efforts and impeccable diplomatic poise,” the resolution noted.
Filipinos owe Balmaceda an even more
profound debt for his services afterwards, including his functions as Special Adviser to the
President on ADB affairs.
He also served as chairman of the 14nation committee on preparatory arrangements for the establishment of the ADB and
the Philippines’ first alternate director of the
ADB. PNA
the death of reefs increases with length
and
severity
of
bleaching.
Authorities have
been promoting the
management
and
protection of reefs,
noting these resources also face a lot of
pressure from overfishing, pollution, sedimentation, inappropriate land uses and
other threats.
Coral reefs serve
as foraging ground
for various marine
species.
A square kilometre of healthy coral
reef is enough to produce some 20,000
kilograms of fish annually.
“That’s enough
to feed about 400
people,” Aliño said,
adding that each of
these persons can
have some 50 kilograms of fish to consume annually.
Only about five
percent of the country’s coral reefs covering some 2.5 million
hectares are in excellent condition.
Some 30 percent
of reefs nationwide
are recovering from
damage. PNA

From page 9
Gigi recalls: “Noah takes the GO train
with me every day. There are days -- Tuesdays
and Thursdays -- that he does not get home
until 8 p.m.”
A typical day for Noah starts at 8 a.m. He
is then in his traditional page uniform.
His daily duties involved delivering water,
notes, messages and documents to the MPPs
inside the Chamber.
Math, language, politics, friendships
Pages have a variety of special duties.
His was to deliver the Clerk’s books.
The pages were tutored in Math and Language. They learned about the Canadian
legislative process.
On Fridays, they had field trips around Toronto, visiting the Second City, the CN Tower,
the Royal Ontario Museum and others.
They had a scavenger hunt at the Legislative Building and visited the “haunted attic”.
Noah met students from across the province, made new friends and learned to work
and bond with everyone.
He admitted that it was an amazing ex-
perience that gave him an inside look and
a better understanding of what transpires at
Queen’s Park.
Job well done
At the end of his term, he received his
Certificate of Recognition. The pages had
their official group photo.
Noah had pictures with Ontario’s key
politicians. He was also provided with a reference letter for a job well done.
He met Ontario Premier Hon. DALTON
MCGUINTY and Ontario Lieutenant Governor
Hon. DAVID ONLEY before he ended his tour
of special duty.
Experience worth passing on
Noah said he would definitely recommend the legislative page program to fellow
Grades 7 and 8 students.
He encouraged children of diverse backgrounds to apply.

make it to ACTS finals
N
ICOLE DATOL, MARKO RAQUENO and
RAINA RESPLANDOR will join ten other
finalists who will compete in the 2012
Asian Canadian Talent Search (ACTS)
at the Chinese Cultural Centre of Greater Toronto on June 30.
All of Filipino roots, Datol, Raqueno and
Resplandor will try to outsing and outdo equally-talented finalists from the Chinese, Korean
and Vietnamese communities to inherit the
ACTS champion title from compatriot INAH
PATRIZIA, 2011 ACTS winner.
Competing against the three are AMY LU
and JODIE JAHNKE, both of Chinese origin; LILI
NGUYEN and TAM DUONG, both of Vietnamese origin; BENJI PARK, CHARLIE PARK, CHRISTINA LEE, KEVIN KIM, MATTHEW SONG and STEVE
KIM, all of Korean origin.
Publicist ANNA DO said ACTS has been a
much-awaited annual singing contest that has
given young Asian Canadians the chance “to
have their voice heard above thousands”.
The Canadian Multicultural Council-Asians
in Ontario developed the competition to allow
Asian Canadian youth to come together and
celebrate their heritage and culture.
The ACTS is designed to nurture young vocal performers in their early stages and provide
a platform for them to display their talents.
They represent their community and they
highlight the undiscovered talent and star
power that exists in Toronto.
The competition is open to all Asian Canadians aged 15 to 30. Auditions started in
April; the semifinals on May 27.

On social media, people were amused
and said that the bill will probably hit more
than half of those men in congress.
This law might create a dent on the twotiming behaviour of spouses.
When this bill becomes a law, would the
‘Filipino Casanova’ become a dying breed?
Lacson-Noel says that “The bill aims to
protect the institution of marriage”.
But whether the bill when passed as a
law would serve to be an effective deterrent
to marital unfaithfulness would remain to be
seen.
But I am pretty sure that the men and
women who have fallen into the habit of
cheating on their spouses are now feeling
scratchy in their seats.
Liceo Folkloric dance troupe raises
$1.6K in Hanoi for Sendong victims

INDANAO-based Liceo Folkloric Dance
Troupe of the Liceo
de Cagayan University recently performed at the
Hue Festival in Hanoi, and raised
over US$1,600 to help rehabilitate
areas devastated by storm Sendong in December 2011.
Their show delighted the diplomatic corps and the Filipino and
Vietnamese communities.
The Hue Festival is an international Vietnamese event of
culture, arts, and tourism staged
every two years, gathering Vietnamese and foreign art troupes
to promote economic and cultural exchanges.
The Liceo’s performance was
sponsored by the Vietnam Union
of Friendship Organization, the
Vietnamese Ministry of Culture,
Sports and Tourism, the Filipino
community led the Pinoy sa Hanoi, and the Philippine Embassy in
Hanoi.
The dance troupe has been
instrumental in propagating the
diverse culture of Mindanao in
the global scene.
The Liceo has performed in
dance festivals in Brunei, Thailand, Singapore and Malaysia. It
started in 1983 as a contingent in

Happy Dad’s Day!
What makes a Dad?
God took the strength of a mountain,
The majesty of a tree,
The warmth of a summer sun,
The calm of a quiet sea,
The generous soul of nature,
The comforting arm of night,
The wisdom of the ages,
The power of the eagle’s flight,
The joy of a morning in spring,
The faith of a mustard seed,
The patience of eternity,
The depth of a family need.
Then God combined these qualities.
When there was nothing more to add,
He knew His masterpiece was complete,
And so, He called it ... Dad.
