    Poultry industry still recovering from the after effects of bird flu outbreak

    by UNTV   |   Posted on Wednesday, September 13th, 2017


    MANILA, Philippines — Farm gate price of chicken remains low while the volume of supply is still high.

    The United Broiler Raisers Association (UBRA) said their fowls have grown overweight. The group added they are expecting a large supply in the coming holiday season.

    “Most of the cold storages are full. The competition is tight so recovery might still be delayed,” said UBRA President Elias Jose Inciong.

    The Department of Agriculture (DA) wants raisers to take part in the control and marketing of their products.

    Secretary Manny Piñol said there are those who are taking advantage of the situation despite the crisis.

    “They have a problem right now. Because the price of chicken in the market is around p120-130 [per kilo]. But the farm gate price is P30-50,” said Piñol.

    DA also plans to revise the protocol in handling bird flu outbreak due to its impact in the industry after all fowls in 1 km radius were culled.

    “If a specific farm is affected, it will only be the one to subject for depopulation. Other farms will just be monitored,” said the agriculture secretary.

    Piñol said, aside from the P29M assistance given to the affected farmers, President Rodrigo Duterte also pledged to allot P100-million for their livelihood. — Rey Pelayo | UNTV News & Rescue

    A tough defense led the Senate Defenders to a win against the GSIS furies in the third game on Sunday’s tripleheader at the Pasig City Sports Center.

    “Pinaghandaan talaga namin yung individual defense eh, para gumanda yung team defense. Kanina nakita nyo result ng individual defense, trumap kami, nag-straight match up kami, nag half-court trap so maganda nga yung resulta,” Senate head coach Mike Fermin said (We really prepare for individual defenses to level up the team’s defense. Earlier you saw the result of our individual defense. We trapped, we did a straight match up and half-court trap. So, the result was good).

    Jeffry Sanders was hailed as the Best Player of the Game for bucketing 17 points and grabbing seven boards.

    Meanwhile, Senator Joel Villanueva contributed 10 points and Senator Sonny Angara, seven points to the Defenders which now has a 2-0 win-loss record.

    In the first game of the triple-header, the AFP Cavaliers gave Commission on Audit Enablers its second loss after the two-time champion beat the rookie team 127-103.

    The soldiers were led by Best Players of the Game Alvin Zuniga with 28 points and Vicente Evidor who made 25 points.

    The AFP Cavaliers now has two games won and zero loss.

    In the Food Masters-Graft Busters match, the Department of Agriculture team elevates in group b with a 2-1 win-loss record after stunning the Ombudsman team 98-61.

    Andanar calls ‘Tindig Pilipinas’ a liar over PRRD ‘insanity’ issue

    by UNTV   |   Posted on Monday, October 16th, 2017

    MANILA, Philippines — Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO) Secretary Martin Andanar has assured that President Rodrigo Duterte’s mind is sound.

    This was his reaction when the cause-oriented group, Tindig Pilipinas claimed President Duterte is losing grip when he threatened last Friday to establish a revolutionary government if conflict in the Philippines worsens due to destabilization plans against the government.

    “I was elected by the people. And if I sense that the country is about to go overboard, I will declare revolutionary government. I am not threatening you but I will pursue you all and I will declare a full-scale war against the New People’s Army. Right now, I’m training about 20 more and in police, about five battalions are SAF. I will add more,” said the president.

    According to Tindig Pilipinas, only the paranoid and the insecure would think of implementing a revolutionary government. They said that the chief executive is also feeling paranoid because of his declining rating and intensifying protests against the administration.

    But Secretary Andanar said Tindig Pilipinas is just spreading lies in order to push their own interests and divert the government’s concentration from important issues.

    Still, the Duterte administration will not be affected and will instead fulfill its promises to the people. — Rosalie Coz | UNTV News and Rescue

    PRRD fires two officials over infra project delays

    by UNTV   |   Posted on Monday, October 16th, 2017

    MANILA, Philippines — President Rodrigo Duterte has fired two officials of the Pasig River Rehabilitation Commission (PRRC) due to delays in the Metro Manila Skyway 3 project.

    “Cabinet members are only allowed one month to act on papers. [Agency] directors only have 15 days. These two sat on the papers for almost one year,” said the president.

    President Duterte did not identify the names of the two officials.

    The president said that the two have already apologized to him through a letter.

    However, the president said that the two clearly committed a violation of the Anti-Graft and Corrupt Practices Act. — | UNTV News & Rescue
