Maka-Survive Ba ang Minyo nga Lalaki sa Sweldo Nga ₱365.00 A Day?

Sakto na ba ang ₱365.00 na sweldo kada adlaw sa Region 10 sa Mindanao, Philippines? Is ₱365.00 enough for a married man to feed himself and his family? Is it enough for him to survive? To answer these questions, it is proper to consider discussing this paralysis of dreams and reviewing how a married man with one child struggles to survive daily.

Ang Kita Nga 365.00

And yes, you are a married man, and you do have a job. You earn ₱365.00 a day. However, you cannot feed your wife and your daughter as you struggle to feed them. This condition is what you call extreme poverty. Di ba kulang siya ang 365?. Nakita na ba kini sa gobyerno? Ug sa karon nga pandemic, unsa na kaha ang kaonon ani nga mga tao. Ang kilo sa karneng baboy ay ₱400.00; sa karneng manok ay ₱200.00; sa karneng baka ay ₱350.00. Daw bi, unsa na ba ang presyo sa mga gulay? Let us see sa Table 1 kung unsa ang magasto sa usa ka amahan sa pamilya. Don’t mention that he has to go on a diet or that he has to tighten his meal expenses a bit. Ang ₱25.00 nga sud-an sa merkado ay usa lang ka gulay ug gamay kaayong hiwa sa karne.



Dawbi Kung Walay Trabaho

Ang mga walay trabaho, mag-nganga sila. Daw bi ang kita sa uban nga ₱25.00 a day? Kausa na lang lugar sila mukaon. Okay lang lugar na nimo nga sila gigutom, tapos daghan imong kwarta sa graft and corruption… Dili na lang nako i-mention ang ahensya kay dilikado. Dili ko sure kung kinsa ang gabuhat sa sakto. Tarong man kuno pud sila?

Basta, don’t blame those poor Filipino people. Blame those people nga nadato ug kalit ug daghan ang mga sakyanan sa easy money lang nga gikas sa mga modus operandi nila and those politicians nga nakadawat ug Standard Operating Procedure (SOP). Unsa kaha ning SOP? Basta, don’t blame the poor people. Basin wala siguro sila naabot sa programa sa family planning. Kung naabot man, unsay nahitabo kaha sa implementasyon. So, wala silay knowledge sa birth control. Kung mutukar ilang gana; mag-kuan pud na sila. Mao pud managhan sila. Aduna bay programa ang gobyerno para ana. I don’t know. As well, I don’t want to comment sa implementation sa family planning program.

Andito na tayo. We are here to witness the outcome of the actions of those people who do so and so and such and such. Daghan ang kwarta sa gobyerno. Daghan ang kwarta sa mga ahensya. Dili na lang ko mag-mention ug mga ahensya. Basta, the government has plenty of financial resources.

Unsay Sakto Lang Na Sweldo

Sana ang basic pay sa lahat ng rehiyon ay dapat nasa ₱1,000.00. Don’t sue me ha. Opinion ko lang ito. Then, calculate ₱1,000.00 a day times 26 days kasi may day off for one month salary. A married man can have ₱26,000.00. Aba, parang okay na ito. Hindi pa kasi kasali sa gastusin ang education, healthcare and medicine, fare and snacks sa mga, at iba. Kunti pa nga ito; pero parang medyo nakakakain na ng tama ang isang pamilya. Iyong mga professionals, syempre kikita sila ng malaki ng kaunti.

Sa huli, sa sobrang mahal ng bilihin at sa daming babayarin, it became a paralysis of dreams. Hindi “Build, Build, and Build” ang nangyayari, parang “Bill, Bill, and Bill” na ang dating.

Canoeing and Kayaking at Dakak Park and Beach Resort

Dakak Park and Beach Resort, positioned in the southern part of the Philippines, gives a new record as one of the tourist attractions and destinations in the country. Surrounded by several mountains in its west, Dakak Park and Beach Resort can charm visitors from all walks of life. It fascinates guests and visitors and gives them some sense of excitement and fun.

At Dakak Park and Beach Resort, guests and visitors can canoe or kayak. What are these sports by the way? Well, canoeing makes use of an open vessel. The paddler who sits or kneels inside the canoe will use a single-bladed paddle. He or she uses the paddle to push the craft through the water. Conversely, the paddler in kayaking makes use of an enclosed vessel. The paddler, who sits inside the kayak with extended legs, makes use of a double-bladed paddle.

Moreover, paddlers prefer canoeing more than kayaking. Generally, canoes are more stable than kayaks. It happens because of the width of the vessel. Paddlers say that they find it easier to enter and exit in the vessels in canoeing than they do in kayaking. As well, paddlers can load many stuff materials in canoeing compared to kayaking. In other words, they can bring several gears. Finally, paddlers can watch pleasant views of their surroundings while canoeing better than kayaking.

Indeed, the main difference between kayaking and canoeing falls under the use of the paddle. The paddler is canoeing uses a single-bladed paddle; whereas, the paddler in kayaking uses a double-bladed paddle. Of course, the obvious difference between the two sports falls on the paddling technique.

Reviewing Charles Darwin’s Theory of Evolution

  1. What is Darwin’s Theory of Evolution? Please explain in terms of Natural Selection. Is Natural Selection purely random chance, or is there design to be understood at various levels? Does this allow for some type of DIALOGUE between religion and science in terms of ultimate truths? What would that be?

The theory of evolution by Charles Darwin in terms of biological evolution put the field of religion at risk. The concept of natural selection explains how these animals and people live according to their ideals. As Charles Darwin claimed, natural selection talked about the distinction between survival and reproduction of individuals because of the disparity of their characteristics. Charles Darwin mentioned that the concept of natural selection served as the key mechanism of evolution. He made use of the idea of genetics to advance his arguments (Moore, 228). He said that people’s natural characteristics and perspectives due to their heritable traits over generations. However, the Bible did not have ideas presented by Charles Darwin. As defined, Darwin pointed out that evolution transpired the concept of descent with modification. He claimed that animals including the lower and upper forms of creatures changed their characteristics over time. It happened during the period of mating and selection. Because of this discovery, Darwin abandoned his religious perspectives and asserted that religion has never been the sole authority (Moore, 228). According to James Moore, the theory of evolution by Charles Darwin advanced the concept of natural selection. This theory contradicted the Book of Genesis, which made him the enemy of the Bible. The Book of Genesis, as Darwin criticized, did not accept and consider Darwin’s principles of natural selection that animals naturally select their mates and pairs and other biological points and instances. According to research, Darwin’s Christian background, as well as his persistent religious principles and his outlooks of God and other supernatural beliefs did not even harmonize well (Moore, 228). In other words, there existed a few things that would support Charles Darwin’s ideas – the field of genetics. Pieces of evidence of evolution showed how Charles Darwin thrived to pin and advance his arguments that the theory of evolution prospered based on evidentiary elements. However, Darwin’s theory is not random at all. There might be a possibility of randomness in the first step; however, the overall process is by chance. In other words, the presentation of the genetic variation would reveal that the process of natural selection would occur at random at a certain step, and yet the overall process of natural selection would never transpire at random order. For example, the survival and reproductive success of individuals would relate to the means and ways that they inherit those genetic functions and traits. The inherited behaviors and characters would function based on the contexts of their environment. As well, based on the field of science, Charles Darwin proved that his scientific discovery and his theoretical works using fossil records as well as the presence of biogeography, comparative anatomy, comparative embryology, and molecular biology helped him advance his model about perspectives of natural selection. However, Darwin’s theory was put under the challenge of religious leaders. he did not even have the chance to justify his point clearly due to pressures. According to research, Darwin did not have the chance to prove it and experiment with his claim; however, his assumptions concerning genetics and other fields brought new light to the study of genetics and other important and relevant sciences (Moore, 228). However, the use of genetics as a field of science to forward his natural selection and evolution would gain positive results. The gene sequences as cited by the series of examinations would confirm Darwin’s theories and hypotheses. This assumption would somehow put the spotlight between religion and science under the covenant and to agree with each of its stances. There might be a dialogue that pushed some agreements between religion and science. However, this dialogue would serve as a justification of idea and a concept of accepting the equality of reasons and truths that both religion and science would be balanced and equal at the same length.

Indeed, Charles Darwin’s claim issued negative remarks against the church. Despite his Christian background, Darwin tried to challenge the belief imposed by religion and claimed that religion and church did not possess the sole authority to claim the truth. His arguments were kept behind his theory; however, supports from scientific fields and pieces of evidence using genetics and other sources could aid and support him. However, Darwin failed to prove his theory since he failed to complete it. perhaps, the Bible seemed angry about was the idea that people came from apes or primates. His theory of evolution would explain how primates and human beings diverged in many instances. It seemed funny to think that people today came from apes or primates but that evidence would show that apes and human beings would have the same or close genetic makeup. Whatever the case might be, science and religion would continue to fight for their positions and stances in society for many years to come.
