Bible Study / Geneva Bible
« on: Yesterday at 05:45:57 AM »
By Scott Robinson
A little bit of history of the (forgotten) Geneva Bible

The Geneva Bible was the "Bible of the Protestant Reformation", and the Bible of the Puritans and Pilgrims. It was the first Bible taken to America, brought over on the Mayflower. The Geneva Bible is the Bible upon which America was founded. You can imagine, most early American colonists, who were fleeing the religious oppression of the Anglican Church (Church of England), wanted nothing to do with the King James Bible of the Anglican Church!

John Calvin
Textually, the Geneva Bible offered a number of radical never-before-seen changes: It was the first Bible in English to add numbered verses to each chapter of scripture. Also, the Geneva was the first Bible to introduce easier-to-read “Roman Style Typeface” rather than the “Gothic Blackletter Style Typeface” which had been used exclusively in earlier Bibles. Another curious innovation; the Geneva was the first “Study Bible ” with extensive commentary notes in the margins.

Queen Mary
The Geneva Bible is the version quoted from hundreds of times by William Shakespeare in his plays. Also called the “Breeches Bible”, the Geneva Bible is the only Bible ever able to outsell and exceed the popularity of the King James Bible, as it did in the early 1600’s until its printing ceased in 1644. In fact, one of the greatest ironies of history, is that Protestants of all denominations today embrace the King James Version of the Bible (which reads 90% the same as the Geneva), even though the King James Version is not a Protestant Bible (it’s Anglican / Church of England). Most Protestants have never even heard of the Bible of their own heritage: the Geneva Bible. It was produced by John Calvin, John Knox, Myles Coverdale, John Foxe, & other English refugees in ever-neutral Geneva, Switzerland… fleeing the persecution of Roman Catholic Queen “Bloody” Mary in England. Mary would not tolerate the Protestant Geneva Bible, which proclaimed the Pope an “antichrist” in its commentarynotes.

As Protestants, I think, we owe it to older reformers, to read this Bible.

Philippine Daily News / Model Entrepreneur
« on: Yesterday at 05:43:28 AM »
By Lucell Larawan

There is nothing dramatic and exciting about financially blessed individuals who merely inherited wealth. We are, however, drawn to those who, through many hard knots, made their own names because they have winning business mindsets.

One of them is Dan Lok, an Asian in origin. He started early on at age 20 when he launched 13 businesses—all coming to grief. Against one’s expectations, he rose from being in debt of $150,000 to one on the crest of the wave.

After his parents separated, Lok and his mother migrated to Canada. In one interview with Entrepreneur magazine, he quipped, “I will never forget the look of hopelessness on my mom’s face and the tears in her eyes”.  He continued: “At that moment, I decided that I would be successful. I didn’t need my dad; I would provide for my mom. I never wanted to see that look again.”

Lok’s first and last minimum wage job was that of a grocer. He was told that he did not fit in as an employee because he could not be told what to do. He could not agree more.

He began mowing lawns and delivering papers--anything that could not possibly raise money. While attending full-time business classes at the Douglas College in Vancouver, he worked through one failed entrepreneurial idea after another. He tried vending machines and day trading, among others.

Seemingly crippled by debts from Lok’s relatives, his cousins advised him that he rather find a job. But Lok reasoned with them: “If I just work for a job, I will never be able to repay you.” He recalls in an interview, “I knew I would be better off as an entrepreneur, even if it took a decade. I never gave up because I couldn’t afford to quit — and if you don’t quit, then you can’t fail.” A strong-willed man of vision does not just take one’s suggestion.

Between the first and the thirteenth attempt, anyone can pull the curtains down, but he reveals in an interview why he was tenacious: “Success is on the razor’s edge of failure. When you think it can’t get any worse, hang on just a little longer.”

Lok, obsessed with marketing, soon discovered marketing expert Alan Jacques. He attended his seminars where he met Jacques in person.

Offering to buy Jacques lunch, Lok asked Jacques to be his mentee. Jacques declined, but Lok was notdeterred. He visited Jacques’ office for a month where he demonstrated his worth,  including picking up trash around the office. Jacques finally hired Lok.

That job with his mentor was important for Lok which made him decide to quit college. He started to craft sales letters only for Jacques to tell him it was terrible. Jacques wasnot satisfied with these letters until his seventh revision. For Jacques, the first draft was “OK”, he confessed later. But he said “OK” is not how one can master anything.

The 12-month mentorship was Lok’s first “million-dollar year” though he did not get much money. From what he learned, he started a sole-proprietorship advertising firm. In one year, his clients earned millions from his sales letters. At a young age of 22, Lok could price a project at $10,000 and was earning six figures.

He returned to Hong Kong where he came from and met his father. Walking down the street, Lok pulled out a set of keys and said, “I bought that apartment for you.” He could already provide for his mom.

The profit Lok earned from his online business went to real estate investments. At 27, he was already a millionaire.Lok founded or partnered in more than 15 companies--from beauty salons to e-commerce—now earning a combined sales that exceed eight figures annually.

These days,Lokis focusingon teaching. He has 4.5 million followers on social media. His video series and programs like “Dan on Demand” and “Tube Your Own Horn,” mentor others to grow their businesses. The business luminary has written more than a dozen books, including, “Unlock It!” which hits bookshelves with ForbesBooks in September 2019. Lokmentors  business skills through his High-Ticket Closer Certification Program and Inner Circle mastermind.

Lok attributes his rise to important elements: mentorship, focus, and “high-income skills” like copywriting, marketing, and public speaking.

Bohol Latest News / Port Projects in Bohol
« on: Yesterday at 03:13:39 AM »
By PIA Bohol/RAC
“Build, Build, Build” puts in P2.2 B
ports infra development fund-PPA

CORTES, Bohol, July 20 (PIA)—For the Philippine Ports Authority’s programmed ports development alone, the government puts in over P2.2 billion to complete an inter-modal transport system under its Build, Build program. 

This is according to PPA Bohol Ports Manager Engr. James Gantalao, during a Department of Transportation hosted Media familiarization Tour to the Port of Tubigon, a newly completed port that the PPA said, its major port in Bohol’s northwestern quadrant.

The low-key and yet consummate performer port manager who has roots in Maribojoc, explained that the PPA is looking at diving Bohol into four, so as to rationalize its development to benefit the entire island.

While the PPA has major ports in Tagbilaran, Jagna, Ubay, Talibon, Getafe and Tubigon, the government has also looked at focusing on the four ports of Tagbilaran, Jagna, Ubay with Tapal, Getafe, whch is closer to Cordova in Cebu and Tubigon.   

The idea is to make all these ports pick the same standard for international tourists that the tourism port of Tagbilaran has since adopted, according to Engr. Gantalao.

Getting the lion share in the Build, Build, Build finds through the PPA is Tubigon Port, which has a proposed P 500 million fund for the 23,385 square meters of additional space they government is reclaiming.

The port of Tubigon had DOTr Secretary Art Tugade officiating its project turn over early this year. 

But even with some parts of the port showing the devastation caused by the 2013 earthquake, the PPA has managed to complete the port management’s administration building with one-stop service station, and the 200 seats passenger terminal building as previously planned.

With the port getting more port calls, a passenger volume of about 6,000 now, and Bohol’s identified rolling cargo port, expanding the port’s spaces come as a necessity. 

On this, the PPA, through the Build, Build, Build is again putting up half a billion fund.

This would expand the port into a convenient and spacious gateway to Bohol, Engr Gantalao shared. 

Then, Ubay port, has a total of P200 million allocation, Gantalao updated the media.

With about 5 hectares of planned reclamation, when completed, Ubay port would soon be Bohol’s biggest port which would serve the Leyte-Bohol Roll-On, Roll-Off link.

Moreover, its municipal ports of Tapal and Aguining are also allocated development funds.

The port of Tagbilaran, on the other hand gets another P150 million for a new and bigger passenger terminal building.

Already tagged by international tourists as among the best tourism ports in the country, Tagbilaran port has 22 daily port calls by one fast craft company alone.

And with limited parking space, and a small passenger terminal building, the need for another passenger terminal hub in the port complex is imperative.

According to the PPA, the port of Getafe, the one closest to Cordova in Cebu, with a travel time of 45 minutes, takes the government’s attention.

For the port that is getting busier now, the government has allotted P150 million for its improvement.

Development planners at the PPA believe that the strategic port of Getafe can boost economic and tourism activities in northern Bohol.

For the port of Tagbilaran, which now has 22 Oceanjet trips alone, the government is putting up another P150 M, for an expansion and a new and bigger Passenger Terminal Building, and more parking spaces.

Tagbilaran is the strategic port that connects Bohol to north western Mindanao, Negros and Cebu. 

On the southeast side is Bohol’s gateway to Mindanao. Jagna Port, owing to its being a strong link to Mindanao gets P97 million this time from the Build Build Build.

Other than Jagna, the Port of Maribojoc, which has the potential to be a cargo port is now eyed for a P450 million port development in this year’s infrastructure projects.

Other ports which the government splurging on infrastructure that ferries development are the ports of Aguining, Popoo, Tapal, and Albur, PPA said. (rahc/PIA-7/Bohol)

World Daily News / Highlander Travel Bag on Kickstarter
« on: July 20, 2019, 05:08:03 PM »
Press Release - A fourth-generation leather maker surpasses its campaign goal, raising more than $9,000 from crowdfunders for its new, high-quality and well-priced “Highlander Travel Bag” on Kickstarter.

Made from weatherproof leather directly from the founder’s family-owned tannery and designed to simplify travel, The Highlander is perfect for short trips or daily use at school or work.

MNML Leather creates beautiful, functional and high-quality leather goods designed to make life easier. Each product is made with a proprietary, weatherproof leather directly from their own tannery. MNML Founder Mitch Bank was inspired to create The Highlander Travel Bag after growing frustrated with the hassle of unpacking during his frequent short-term trips, and the inconvenience of getting through airport security checkpoints.

“I don’t think of it as a bag…it’s more of a travel system,” Bank said. “I designed The Highlander as a highly organized, carry-on approved travel bag. It’s made to open flat, so you never have to unpack it, to be quick and easy to get through airport security and compact enough to carry everything you need for trips up to four days. There’s no more checked luggage and the frustration that comes with it.”

Bank represents his family’s fourth generation in the leather business, which started in the 1940s when his great-grandfather immigrated to Canada with his family after surviving the Holocaust. He started as a cowhide trader with his brother and eventually built their own hide plant in Toronto.

“Inspired by my family history, I decided to chart my own course to create beautiful, functional and well-made leather goods, using the highest quality leather from my family's own tannery,” he said. “It means a lot to me to continue my family legacy.”

Over more than seven decades, Bank’s family has sold leather across the globe, and now owns Wicket and Craig of America – one of two remaining vegetable tanneries in the United States. Wicket & Craig is the only tannery in the world capable of tanning this specific weatherproof leather using its proprietary process, and supplies leather to many of the top fashion brands around the world.

“Most other high-quality leather bags are unreasonably expensive, but The Highlander is, what I call, ‘reasonable luxury,’” Bank said. “It’s beautiful, tough and priced well, especially considering the quality of the materials and level of manufacturing involved in production.”

The Highlander’s features include:

Organized pockets for easy packing
A full perimeter zipper that allows the bag to lay flat, providing easy access to everything inside.
A separate laptop pocket for easy access
A TSA-friendly front pocket designed to help speed users through airport security.
A zipper pocket for chargers
A shoe pocket
An internal pocket for small items that are easy to lose
Weatherproof leather (a proprietary trade secret)
Weatherproof canvas
Waterproof, smell-proof, easy-clean lining
Felt-padded shoulder straps
A multi-purpose handle that easily fits atop most roller luggage when needed
A simple, unisex design
In addition to travel, The Highlander is versatile enough to be used as the ideal day-bag for touring a city, enjoying a theme park, or going on a hike. It may also be used as a gym or even a diaper bag – and is stylish enough to take to the office.

To find out more about the unique Highlander Travel Bag, or to purchase the bag while it’s offered at a special early-bird crowdfunding price, visit The Highlander Campaign Page on Kickstarter.

About MNML Leather
Inspired by family history, The MNML Leather creates beautiful, functional and well-made leather goods, using the highest quality leather from their family owned tannery. Each product is made with three principles in mind:

1. Minimalism - Minimalist designs allow users to carry only what they need and nothing more.
2. Functionality - This is the backbone of everything they create. Each product by The MNML is designed to make life easier.
3. Quality - All MNML products are made by an experienced team of leather artisans, using the highest quality materials available.

It is their belief that, as long as they stick to these principles, they will continue to create products that go above and beyond. For more information visit

World Daily News / Advantages of Optimist
« on: July 20, 2019, 05:02:33 PM »
Press Release - It’s not hard to see the advantages of being an optimist. Research has shown that people with this outlook are better at coping with stress, they’re happier, and even healthier. Optimism can also be infectious. Walk into a room filled with optimists and you would probably find yourself feeling more upbeat and content. There’s more to optimism, however, than the positive mindset and hopeful outlook. A recent study from PsychTests reveals that optimists have several more surprising advantages over their glum counterparts.

Assessing data from over 16,000 people who took their at: Happiness Test (at:, PsychTests’ researchers focused their analysis on a sample of 1,658 pessimists and 1,545 optimists.

Here is Where They Differed:

80% of the optimistic group look for the best in others, even the most onerous of people (compared to 16% of pessimists).
80% have a large support network that they can rely on in difficult times (compared to 19% of pessimists).
93% are able to be objective and view a problem from different perspectives (compared to 27% of pessimists).
97% have a strong sense of self-efficacy and eagerly take on challenges (compared to 18% of pessimists).
97% have a proactive attitude towards life and actively seek out change (compared to 20% of pessimists).
97% are totally comfortable being their true selves, faults and all (compared to 17% of pessimists).
96% make it a point to learn from their mistakes and failures (compared to 51% of pessimists).
75% of the optimistic group are/were above average students (compared to 53% of pessimists).
93% are satisfied with their personal relationships (compared to 29% of pessimists).
71% are satisfied with their job (compared to 13% of pessimists).
75% received good ratings at their last performance review (compared to 30% of pessimists).
On The Flipside, Psychtests' Stuy Also Revealed That:
40% of the pessimistic group were diagnosed with or being treated for depression (vs. 14% of the optimists).
79% confessed that they feel lonely (compared to only 2% of the optimistic group).
“Optimism isn’t about pretending to be happy when you’re not, acting like problems don’t exist, or taking chances on blind faith,” explains Dr. Jerabek, president of PsychTests. “It also doesn’t mean that you should repress your negative thoughts. Those are the kind of pie-in-the-sky optimists who refuse to accept reality as it is and can actually be quite reckless. The best outlook is optimism with a dose of realism. These are the optimists who recognize that there is a lesson in every negative situation and every failure. They prepare and plan ahead in case something could go wrong, but they also stay positive and focus on possibility, hope, and success. Most importantly, they understand that their outlook has a huge impact on their circumstances, and as our study and many other studies have shown, the benefits of being optimistic are numerous. You don’t have to force yourself to be cheerful. Just strive to remember that how you view a situation impacts how you cope with it and how you approach it. So why not do so with an attitude of hope, promise, and positivity?”

20-year-old Midsayap burger joint worker kidnapped
By John Unson

NORTH COTABATO  --- Gunmen snatched Friday a worker of a burger joint while on his way to work from a Friday worship rite in a mosque in Midsayap town in this province.
The Midsayap police office has confirmed the abduction of the 20-year-old Jake Omar Talusan but has no clue yet on who were behind it.
Witnesses said Talusan was on a motorcycle from a mosque in Barangay Sadaan, Midsayap en route to the Jollibee branch in the center of the municipality when gunmen flagged him down and forced him into a black, heavily-tinted van parked nearby.
Relatives told reporters via online Messenger that Talusan had sent a text message to his parents saying he was spirited by his captors to Digos City in Davao del Sur, about three hours away via overland travel from Midsayap.
Intelligence agents of the North Cotabato provincial police are now trying to track him down and his abductors, according to regional police spokesman Lt. Col. Aldrin Gonzalez.
Friends of Talusan told police investigators he has no known enemies and that he is a religious person who does not skip obligatory Islamic Friday worship prayers in the mosque.

Some 70 teachers of creative writing and literature from all over Bohol and other cultural workers recalled memories of Boholano cuisine—ranging from sweet,  sour, milky and bitter, to salty and spicy—in a four-day heritage memoirs writing workshop on place, memory and food  on July 8-11, 2019 at the Bohol Arts and Cultural Heritage Institute (BACHI) in Tagbilaran City.

The four-day workshop introduced participants to the experience of creative writing, particularly the genre of creative non-fiction memoir, on their Boholano family food heritage. Guided by writing mentors, they culled from remembered stories of a food item, in terms of its particular contexts in place and time, the characters in these stories, and how the heritage continues to live in the family.

The all-Boholano team of facilitators included Dr. Marjorie Evasco, University Fellow and Literature Professor Emeritus of De La Salle University, Prof. Leo Abaya, full professor of the College of Fine Arts of University of the Philippines-Diliman, Dr. Ulysses Aparece, anthropologist and dean of the College of Liberal Arts of University of Cebu, and Dr. Rose Rara, Holy Name University graduate school professor.

The heritage memoirs writing workshop has been organized by BACH Institute in partnership with the Bohol provincial government, Diocese of Tagbilaran, Department of Education Division of Bohol, Loboc Youth Education Association Foundation and the National Commission for Culture and the Arts.

Designed for teachers of literature and creative writing, artists, cultural and development workers, the workshop opened with a panel provocation sharing  on “Cultural Heritage, Place, Memory and Food” by each of the facilitating writers, including a “Memory Mapping” with Lutgardo Labad, head of BACHI. 

Participants were then divided into four groups,  each with a facilitator, and held close reading practices on a sample memoir writing “Puto Baang: Journey and Memory” by Ulysses B. Aparece.

In the first writeshop on “Framing the Narrative through Conceptualization and Form (Point of view and Story Arc),” the participants were asked to cull their memory of a traditional Boholano dish that is part of their family culinary heritage, like torta nga kinaraan, kalamay, inun-unan tulingan, etc.

A guide questionnaire prepared by Dr. Evasco urged participants to specify the elder in their family who specialized in preparing and cooking the dish. “Since the memoir is yours and is in the first person point of view, excavate your memory for the story you can tell of how this elder and her/his dish marks your family in a specific way by describing three scenes that you can use as the story’s beginning, middle and end,” she further instructed.

The first day produced draft sample narratives of some Boholano family culinary heritage. These included, “Kilawin Kindles Kinship,” a draft account of a dish from goat meat, “Halang-Halang Manok Tinunuan ” from Maribojoc about a chicken dish with coconut milk that spices up life in a village, “Hinudnong Bingka ni Manang”  as livelihood support, “Putos Putos nga Latik” as means for education, “Nilusak ni Mamala,” “Puso sa Saging: A Story of Food and Healing,” etc.

The second day tackled “Constructing the Story World; Setting as Place and Space; Setting as Time.” Participants were asked to “think of the context in which the family dish is situated in the village and town.” What is available in the area that is used in the preparation of the dish? When is this family dish prepared and why? Do other families know how to prepare and cook it?

At this stage, they were asked to extend the contexts in place and time of the family dish by interviewing  the one who specialized in cooking it (if still alive) on how the recipe came into his/her hands, who taught her the ‘secrets’ that made it distinct from the recipe of the same dish in other families.

The third writeshop on “Constructing the Plot and Desire in the Arc of Meaningfulness” followed. The facilitators asked participants to “think… why this dish is important to them personally and how it is connected to their sense of belonging to a family or clan.” Do they know how to prepare and cook it? If not, who usually prepares and still cooks it now?

The guide question further instructed the teachers to “remember an occasion, including who were present, when the whole family gathered and had the dish. How is this family culinary tradition valuable to you? How important is this culinary heritage to you as a Boholano? How would you feel if it is lost forever in oblivion?

Since there were many heritage Boholano dish narratives written by the 70 workshop participants that could not all be presented within a limited time, each facilitator was asked to choose a best draft that was reviewed and critiqued by the panel and presented on the final day in a creative presentation or reading at the BACH Institute. The facilitators selected the following:

“Hinalang nga Baki: Lami o Dili” by Ejay Auxterio of Dagohoy, narrated the mixture of fun and difficulties involved in catching farm frogs for the hinalang nga baki dish in “sugid-balak”  or narrative prose poetry in Boholano with theater improvisation assistance by Kasing Sining artists Bryll Dumandan, Doydoy Calle, and one more.

“Pag-abot sa pagkaon, lahi ra gyud basta Bol-anon. Kugihan mangita up paagi para naay sud-anon. Usa na niini ang pagkaon ug hinalang nga baki, bati sa imong pamati apan kung ikaw makatilaw daw tumang kalami,” Auxterio opens her narrative on a spicy frog dish.

“Puso: A Story of Food and Healing” by Jocelyn J. Laguna showed in English narrative how her grandmother’s recipe of puso or banana blossom with lumayagan or squid was instrumental in healing a family trauma early in her childhood. Laguna presented a dramatic reading of excerpts from her heritage dish story.

“Bisa’g Saging Basta Labing” by Jaymay Derosahento presented a voice dramatization of how pounded banana sab-a mixed with grated coconut saved his family from hunger after typhoon Ruping devastated their house and farm. This banana mix eventually became the basis of a family business venture from his Lolo’s nilurang nga sab-a to maruya. He concludes, “As long as there is saging, we will surely always be assured of labing (love).”

Raffy Salo presented a reading of his “Putos Putos Aron Mulampos: Latik,” a story of how preparing and selling “balikutsa” or latik, a sticky mixture of cooked dark brown sugar and coconut milk wrapped in dried banana leaves, helped him and his family in facing the challenges of life, and in completing his education as a teacher.

The best final memoirs will become part of a book, “The Bohol We Savor,” to be published by the BACH Institute in 2020.

A reading/performance of Marjorie Evasco’s poem “Sumad” was presented by Rama Marcaida, Gardy Labad, Cooper Resabal, Rose Rara and one more, with drum and bamboo rainmaker sound backup as a final rite/offering of the workshop.

All participants who submitted a memoir or work of creative non-fiction on a heritage family dish were each given a certificate of participation for completing the writeshop signed by the four mentors/facilitators.

Cotabato City-based tourists still missing in Phuket, Thailand after large waves swept them away to deep sea
COTABATO CITY (July19) --- The two Filipinos missing after high waves battered on July 17 the Freedom Beach in Phuket, Thailand are both residents of this city.

Rescuers have still been searching for Noah Ibay, Jr., 40, and his companion, the 29-year-old Angelo Bian Rafael Cortez, according to Thai online news reports.

The duo was among 13 friends from this city who left for a vacation in Thailand early this week.

Relatives of Ibay, whose mother is a senior official in central Mindanao of the Department of Agrarian Reform, told reporters here they have requested the embassy of Thailand in Metro Manila to provide them periodic updates on efforts to find them.
Uncooperative weather has reportedly stymied the search and rescue missions.

Ibay’s uncle, Mayor Cahar Ibay of Parang town in the first district of Maguindanao, said his nephew was not even swimming when big waves hit the beach where they were whiling away time along with Cortez and their companions.

“We are praying, hoping Thai rescuers could find them both,” the mayor said.
