"My mom died before she even got her hazard pay."

Netizen Joie Cruz, daughter of a fallen COVID-19 frontliner, shares in a Facebook post her experience after her mother's fight with COVID-19:

"A few months before my mom passed away, she's been telling me about how long she and her co-nurses had been waiting for their COVID hazard pay.

She and her co-workers were expecting about PHP 30,000+ for their COVID hazard pay, based on the DOH announcement of PHP 500 per day for frontliners.

I went to her workplace to process some of her docs and to claim her benefits. I was told that her COVID hazard pay is already available. Instead of the expected PHP 30,000+, what I received was PHP 7,000+.

Apparently, the COVID hazard pay of the nurses in their public hospital has been reduced to just PHP 150 per day and on top of it were deductions that were not even properly explained by the hospital administration.  In the end, it appears my mom was only given a freaking PHP 64.18 ($ 1.31) per day for her COVID hazard pay for 41 days.

This issue is not about monetary value. This issue is about how governments lie and how we take for granted and exploit our frontliners in the face of this pandemic."

Joie also recalled how her mother was denied a swab test despite being exposed to a COVID-19 patient, since her rapid test showed that she was negative for SARS-CoV-2, and her x-ray and ECG results were normal. Joie's mother passed away shortly after she was intubated on July 21.

"This issue is about how my mom was treated way way below than what she deserves in a local public hospital where she worked in for more than 10 years - the first 4 years of those were without any salary," Joie adds.

Young Filipino “clean energy entrepreneurs” target more jobs, savings after COVID-19

Young Filipino engineers and other professionals are innovating projects that could help ease the recession brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The projects use renewable energy to raise incomes in the countryside and modern technologies to generate energy efficiency savings for families and businesses.

The projects were presented recently in the webinar “Enabling Communities through Energy Innovations” hosted by the international non-profit New Energy Nexus, with the support of the German government’s development cooperation company Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) and the German political foundation Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES).

The eight projects presented provide solar power for health and other basic services as well as livelihood projects and even internet connectivity in marginalized communities, do crowdfunding for solar generators for sitios, turn rice straws and other food waste into clean fuels and fertilizer, minimize building energy cost using building energy modelling software, and track electricity usage cost per appliance in real time.

Lack of access to energy for basic services, livelihood, and connectivity hinders development in many remote communities in the country that cannot be connected to the power grid.

Energy efficiency provides important cost savings for households and businesses, as the Philippines has one of the highest electricity costs in Southeast Asia.

Around 150 start-up companies, entrepreneurs, investors, non-government organizations, government representatives, energy professionals, climate advocates, and the academe watched the presentations.

Some attendees expressed interest in partnering with the start-up companies.

More than half of the audience also said they want to be updated on the projects and others to come.

"We see a massive shift and turnover to renewables driven by inventors, innovators, and entrepreneurs," said Danny Kennedy, CEO of California-based New Energy Nexus, which supports clean energy entrepreneurs in the U.S., Asia and Africa with funds, accelerators and networks.

According to GIZ Philippines climate change projects coordinator Dr. Bjoern Surborg, “Germany’s ongoing Energiewende or energy transition to low-carbon renewables was driven in part by citizen-led initiatives. As a development organization, GIZ is supporting these start-ups to help fast-track the Philippines’ transition to clean and affordable energy with Philippine partner organizations on behalf of the German Government.”

FES Philippines Resident Representative Dr. Johannes Kadura added, "It is very important to not only strengthen sustainable projects when it comes to renewable energy, but also try to support, through our partners, the underprivileged and underserved population in the Philippines and to improve their livelihood."

The Philippine government welcomed the efforts to promote clean energy and strengthen livelihoods.

House Deputy Speaker Loren Legarda said in her keynote message, "Our aim is not just to have security of energy supply, reliability and affordability, but also to promote a healthy energy mix for our communities and future generations. This program is one of the effective ways to support our efforts towards a clean energy economy."

Dr. Enrico Paringit, Executive Director of the Department of Science and Technology’s Philippine Council for Industry, Energy and Emerging Technology Research and Development (PCIEERD), said in the second keynote message, "Micro, small and medium enterprises generate substantial greenhouse gas emissions. If we help them adopt low-carbon technologies, we would also help them cut down their energy cost and so become more competitive."

TO WILLIAM BELL SCOTT.
DEAR SCOTT,—Among various gifts which I have received from you, tangible and intangible, was a copy of the original quarto edition of Whitman's Leaves of Grass, which you presented to me soon after its first appearance in 1855. At a time when few people on this side of the Atlantic had looked into the book, and still fewer had found in it anything save matter for ridicule, you had appraised it, and seen that its value was real and great. A true poet and a strong thinker like yourself was indeed likely to see that. I read the book eagerly, and perceived that its substantiality and power were still ahead of any eulogium with which it might have come commended to me—and, in fact, ahead of most attempts that could be made at verbal definition of them.

Some years afterwards, getting to know our friend Swinburne, I found with much satisfaction that he also was an ardent (not of course a blind) admirer of Whitman. Satisfaction, and a degree almost of surprise; for his intense sense of poetic refinement of form in his own works and his exacting acuteness as a critic might have seemed likely to carry him away from Whitman in sympathy at least, if not in actual latitude of perception. Those who find the American poet "utterly formless," "intolerably rough and floundering," "destitute of the A B C of art," and the like, might not unprofitably ponder this very different estimate of him by the author of Atalanta in Calydon.

May we hope that now, twelve years after the first appearance of Leaves of Grass, the English reading public may be prepared for a selection of Whitman's poems, and soon hereafter for a complete edition of them? I trust this may prove to be the case. At any rate, it has been a great gratification to me to be concerned in the experiment; and this is enhanced by my being enabled to associate with it your name, as that of an early and well-qualified appreciator of Whitman, and no less as that of a dear friend.

Yours affectionately,
W. M. ROSSETTI.
October 1867.

Bible Study / Hosea Chapter 10
« on: Today at 06:13:08 AM »
Hosea 10
 1  Israel was a luxuriant vine, which produced fruit freely. According to the multitude of his fruit, he has increased the altars. Accordingly, they have made beautiful images after the goodness of his land.

 2  Their heart is divided; now they shall be guilty. He shall break down their altars, and He shall spoil their images,

 3  For now they shall say, "We have no king because we did not fear the LORD; what then should a king do to us?"

 4  They have spoken words, swearing falsely in making a covenant. Thus judgment springs up like hemlock in the furrows of the field.

 5  Because of the calves of Beth Aven, the people of Samaria shall fear, for its people shall mourn over it, as well as its idolatrous priests who rejoiced over it for its glory, because its glory has departed from it.

 6  It shall also be carried to Assyria for a present to King Contentious. Ephraim shall receive shame, and Israel shall be ashamed of his own counsel.

 7  As for Samaria, her king is cut off as a bough on the water.

 8  Also the high places of Aven, the sin of Israel, shall be destroyed. The thorn and the thistle shall come up on their altars; and they shall say to the mountains, "Cover us," and to the hills, "Fall on us."

 9  "O Israel, you have sinned from the days of Gibeah. There they stood; war upon the sons of violent deeds shall not overtake them in Gibeah.

 10  When I desire, I shall chastise them; and the people shall be gathered against them, when they shall bind themselves to their two perversities.

 11  And Ephraim is like a trained heifer, that loves to thresh, and I passed the yoke over her fair neck. I will make Ephraim to ride; Judah shall plow, and Jacob shall break his clods."

 12  Sow to yourselves in righteousness, reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground, for it is time to seek the LORD, until He comes and rains righteousness on you.

 13  You have plowed wickedness; you have reaped iniquity; you have eaten the fruit of lies because you trusted in your way, in the multitude of your mighty men.

 14  Therefore a tumult shall arise among your people, and all your fortresses shall be spoiled, as the ruin of Beth Arbel by Shalman in the day of battle. The mother was dashed in pieces with her children.

 15  Thus He does to you, Bethel, because of your great wickedness. In a morning the king of Israel shall be utterly cut off.

YOUTH STARTUP CREATES AN INNOVATIVE ONLINE RENTAL MARKETPLACE WHERE PEOPLE CAN RENT ITEMS FROM OWNERS WHO WISH TO EARN FROM THEIR UNUSED ITEMS

A new business venture has found ways for MSMEs and individuals who own unused or no longer used equipment, appliances, and other items to safely and securely rent out their items to others who need them but are limited by their finances to buy them.

Dibi.Rent co-founder Charles de Belen said items put up for rent on their community sharing marketplace can help people live their passion by kickstarting their businesses, pursuing their hobbies, working from home or studying at home.

"Capital constraints is the 2nd topmost reasons why businesses or micropreneurs in the Philippine cannot start or scale their businesses since they cannot access the equipment they need. Their budget is enough only for a fraction of the whole purchase cost. They only have enough for renting what they need," de Belen said.

"On the other side of the landscape, there are people and businesses who have items that they can rent out because the items were already bought, but the owners of these items such as, gyms, internet cafes, or restaurants got caught in the economic storm of the pandemic, so now they are unable to use what they spent a lot of money on for their businesses as their operations are either suspended or shut down.” Patricia Plan, one of the founders, explained.

 De Belen, Plan, and 2 other co-founders at Dibi.Rent  thought of connecting those two sets of people. They did and they are now positioned to offer their lending services in Quezon City, Makati City, Taguig City, and Pasig City

"The item owners earn passive income from the rent while the renters can earn business or work income from using the rented items and student-renters can earn their course credits and degrees from affordable rented items like computers and study equipment.

Plan said Dibi.Rent uses its "intelligent recommendation system" to connect the item owners and renters.

"Our platform also insures rented items for up to P200,000, thus providing security and peace of mind over the items rented for both lenders and borrowers," she said.

“When COVID struck and we saw how we have unemployment of around 7.2 million Filipinos and are on track to be in one of the worst economic recession in our history, we knew that we should do something to help our fellow Filipinos bounce back and restart their lives,” said Plan.

"The team is looking to continue to improve the Dibi.Rent experience after it launches, and add to the categories that are currently available in the platform," de Belen also said.

Dibi.Rent is now live at www.dibi.rent . Updates on its journey can also be found at https://fb.me/dibi.rent .   (END)
