PUBLIC NOTICE: Why pretend that the National language of the Philippines is Tagalog? It should be English. To be a Teacher, doctor, lawyer, engineer, architect, nurse, computer technician; what books do you learn from? English books of course. All your tests are in English. The constitution of the Philippines is written in English. All the laws and new laws introduced by congress are in English. For that matter, you can't be a teacher in a school system unless you know English. The "Licensure Exam for Teachers" is in ENGLISH! Who are these people forcing Tagalog down our throats? Tagalog is simply one of the many dialects of the Philippines. Keep your dialects but learn and be proficient in ENGLISH.

Natural Resources of Mapun, Tawi-Tawi, Philippines
- Protect the environment
It is sad but true that as of the year 2012 the rivers of the Philippines continue to be the #1 Sewer Systems of the Philippines.
Protect & Save the Rivers. Do not let your sewer drain into the river. Your community can be the first to initiate this project.
Build your riverbank protection with a built-in gutter system. Reforest within Ten Years - Guaranteed!
Let us plant more trees in every barangay in the entire Philippines. It does not make any difference if the barangay is urban, partially urban or rural; we need more trees. Trees will prevent erosion, provide oxygen, prevent green house effect, and even a place of business for the shade tree mechanic.
The Philippines is a tropical country and practically anything will grow. The DENR has the planting trees project that goes on every year. Lots of picture taking for the media. Planting trees one by one is the "human" way of doing it. This individual planting of trees is good if done to "line" the roads and highways with trees or along fences or property divisions, or if you have a plantation.
To reforest the nation of the Philippines we have to plant trees the "mother nature" way. Sow the seeds during the rainy season. Go deep into "bald" forests and plant trees by sowing seeds. If there's not enough volunteers to do this, use the military helicopters to fly over the designated areas and sow the seeds.
Guaranteed within a few years, The Philippines will be lush again. >>Read More
We are using our rivers as our sewer system. If you ask a Filipino, "Are the Filipinos a clean people?" The answer is an automatic, "Yes!". However, the Filipinos are suffering from the same disease or attitude as most people do, and that is the "NIMBY" disease or "NIMBY" attitude. (NIMBY) Not In My Back Yard. So it is OK to dump my garbage and sewer there. Not mine! Someone else will take care of it.
This attitude is killing our rivers. Your great-grandparents, grandparents or parents were once proud to tell the stories of how they enjoyed swimming in the river behind your house or nearby. However, you can't say the same or tell the same stories to your kids or grand kids. Why? Because your generation is killing the river.

We have so much water in the Philippines and yet very little to drink.
Instead of relying too much on Diesel fuel and Coal to generate the majority of Philippine's Electrical energy Supply, we can concentrate more on renewable and sustainable source of energy such as: Hydro Power, Solar Power, and Wind Power and thermal energy conversion. We have too many black outs.
Possible Tawi-Tawi oil field to propel economy
By NONOY E. LACSON
January 26, 2010, 3:40pm
BONGAO, Tawi-Tawi – The possible oil find in Mapun, Tawi-Tawi will bail out from poverty the people of the province and eventually give the provincial government here the needed socio-economic and infrastructure development in the coming months.
This was the statement issued by Tawi-Tawi Gov. Sadikul Sahali after visiting the Exxon Mobile oilrig site off Mapun municipal group of islands in Tawi-Tawi on Monday.
Exxon Mobil chief executive officer Ian Fischer and other top executives invited Sahali to an inspection tour at the oilrig site off Mapun town Monday.
The Exxon Mobil oilrig site is located southeast of Mapun – northeast of Taganak and southwest of Turtle Island, employs about 165 highly technical and trained personnel composed of Filipinos, Indonesians, Malaysians and even American.
The oil exploration company, Fisher said, had just closed the first oilrig drilling site and recently opened a new site in the area for another possible oil deposits.
“I am convinced they found oil deposits in their first oilrig site in Mapun but not of commercial quantity, though they have not told me that they found such during their oilrig activities in the area,” the governor said.
“What I am hoping now is for the company to find the oil deposits in the area in order for the province to also benefit from their finds in term of employment, infrastructure development and most importantly for needed socio and economic development for the province,” Sahali disclosed.
He also described the Exxon Mobil oilrig activities in Mapun as using the most “sophisticated state-of-the-art facilities and guided by Global Positioning System or GPS.”
