Medicinal Herbs have a variety of uses including culinary, medicinal, as alternative herbal remedies, or in some cases even spiritual usage. A medicinal herb may be a shrub or other woody plant, whereas a culinary herb is a non-woody plant, typically using the leaves.

Medicinal plants are widely used in non-industrialized societies, mainly because they are readily available and cheaper than modern medicines. The annual global export value of the thousands of types of plants with medicinal properties was estimated to be US$2.2 billion in 2012. In 2017, the potential global market for botanical extracts and medicines was estimated at several hundred billion dollars

Wars of ancient history were about possessions, territory, power, control, family, betrayal, lover's quarrel, politics and sometimes religion.

But we are in the Modern era and supposedly more educated and enlightened .

Think about this. Don't just brush off these questions.

  • Why is RELIGION still involved in WARS? Isn't religion supposed to be about PEACE?
  • Ask yourself; What religion always campaign to have its religious laws be accepted as government laws, always involved in wars and consistently causing WARS, yet insists that it's a religion of peace?


There are only two kinds of people who teach tolerance:
  1. The Bullies. They want you to tolerate them so they can continue to maliciously deprive you. Do not believe these bullies teaching tolerance, saying that it’s the path to prevent hatred and prejudice.
  2. The victims who are waiting for the right moment to retaliate. They can’t win yet, so they tolerate.

Dumaguete Cathedral
Written by the Provincial Administrator:

The Provincial Capitol in Dumaguete City was built in 1924 during the American colonization of the Philippines. The Provincial Capitol houses the Governor's Office and other provincial government offices. Its architecture was patterned after the Capitol in the United States of America. The main body is Grecian, while the columns are Ionic.

During this period of American occupation the colonizers hired the services of city planner and architect Daniel Hudson Burnham to design the new provincial capitol. Before it was located in what is now the Serafin Teves residence at the Rizal Boulevard.

The Grecian style dominated American architecture during this period. It was the first truly national style in the United States, found in all regions of the country. The popularity of the style was due to the strong associations with classical tradition and democracy. It was very adaptable, and permeated all levels of building, form high to low. The Americans wanted to spread this type of style to its colonies. In Manila, similar buildings can be found like the Post Office, Department of Tourism and the National Museum. Other Provincial Capitols with similar architecture are Negros Occidental, Leyte and Cebu.

The significance of this architecture is that it symbolizes strength and fortitude in which the government should always uphold. The white paint is a symbol of purity that should never be tarnished with scandal or war.

All in all the Provincial Capitol Building is a living reminder of our colonial past that has brought to our shores the ideals of democracy. It is only fitting and ironic that the Americans honor their government buildings with architecture from Greece, the birthplace of democracy. Even thousands of years later when the first city-states were built in Athens, so to will their traditions remain alive half way around the world in a place called Dumaguete City, Negros Oriental.

The province’s terrain consists of rolling hills, a few plateaus, and mountain ranges which for the most part are close to the narrow coastal trip. Kanlaon Volcano, the highest peak in the island of Negros at 2465 meter, dominates the northern end of the province. The whole eastern part of Negros Oriental has a climate characterized by no pronounced rainfall. The other half of the province has distinct wet and dry seasons. Negros Island was originally called " Buglas", but the Spaniards changed this to Negros because of the dark-skinned Negritos they found there.

Ethnic Origin of the People

When the Spanish explorers landed in Negros Oriental in 1565, they found natives who called the place “Buglas”, named after a kind of tall grass resembling the present-day sugar cane plant. Buglas grass was then abundantly growing in the island. The Spaniards encountered many black people with black kinky hair among the inhabitants, they called the island Negros. Kabilin, a book on provincial history, edited by Merlie Wenceslao and Bobby Villasis, mentions what seemed to be the first known documentary reference to the island of Negros appears in an atlas drawn in 1545 by the renowned Spanish cartographer Alonso de Santa Cruz (c.1490-1567). Santa Cruz’s map bears the legend y de Negros, probably derived from reports of the presence of small black people (negritos) on the island. Thus, a score of years before the Legaspi expedition, the Spaniards already knew the island of Negros by this name. At that time, there were two (2) types of forest dwellers, the black natives called Ata or Agta (Negrito) and the Proto-Malay also known as Bukidnon with dark brown skin.

Along the coastline dwelt the natives of Malayan heritage who were engaged in little agricultural activities and barter trading with the Chinese and other Asian merchants who came as early as the 13th century. Although no written documents have been found, artifacts and relics belonging to the Sung Dynasty period in the 12th century were excavated in the towns of Bacong, Bayawan (now Bayawan City) and La Libertad in Negros Oriental and Escalante in Negros Occidental. This indicates a flourishing trade and commerce with other neighboring countries such as China, India and the Malayan peninsula.

Economy of Negros Oriental, Philippines

Negros Oriental economy remains strong amid global economic recession
by Rachelle M. Nessia
Philippine Information Services

Dumaguete City (7 August 2009) -- The local economy in the province remains in good shape despite the global economic slowdown that has upset the national and international economies.

This was noted by Msgr. Merlin Logronio, president of the Negros Oriental Network of NGOs (non-government organizations) in a recent press conference as he pointed out that there are now more developments mushrooming in the province compared to the past.

"We can see more infrastructures and I can see changes and improvements even in the services in the province," said Msgr. Logronio.

Bert Aquino, Negornet Board Member, speaking in the same forum, explained that the global financial crisis has mostly affected economies that are export-led or import-dependent. "In Negros Oriental, you seldom see industries that are dependent on importation. Duna'y ginagmay pero dili kayo," he said.

Aquino said that the province's economy is very local and is anchored heavily on agricultural, establishments and the local government which is the biggest employer in the province.

Despite the province being seemingly impervious to the global financial crisis, there is still more that needs to be done, said Msgr. Logronio. "We still have a tremendous lack of resources. For example, I believe there are many schools being put up pero dili ra gyud ta kaapas," he explained.

In terms of employment or lack of it, he urged Negrenses to be resourceful and invent for themselves what they can do and be positive about it.

"Our population is growing rapidly that no good government can really keep up with it," he lamented.

He stressed that the government has been responsive and trying their best and "we give them credit for that but they cannot do everything."

He said that it is now up to the private sector to respond midway and organize themselves to respond to the global demands and changes affecting everyone. "I see so many opportunities for the local sector to continue improving our situation," he explained.

This was echoed by Aquino, who added that this is now the challenge of the local government officials – how to further strengthen the local economy "so we won't be vulnerable with whatever happens to the global economy."

Said press conference was held to announce Negornet's 17th anniversary and its 6th Annual NegOr NGO & PO (people's organizations) Week from August 3 to 8.

Negornet is composed of 25 NGOs and POs and was formed to serve as a mechanism in consolidating the NGOs and POs along local development and in facilitating meaningful participation in local governance.

Reports of higher government spending and continued resiliency of remittances are among the things that would prop-up the Philippine economy in the second quarter of this year.

Philippine Equity Partners Inc. (PEP) analyst Jojo Gonzales considers the 0.4 percent output of the domestic economy in the first quarter this year as the "worst quarter in terms of growth."

"Increased government spending, sustained bank lending, the bottoming out of trade, stable remittance flows, all suggest mildly better growth in (the) second quarter," he said.

Natural Resources of Negros Oriental, 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.
