Only in the Philippines: All cops assigned of a town in the province of Siquijor were all females

In Siquijor, Philippines  the municipality in the island province of Siquijor became the first town in the Philippines to have an all-female police force, the Philippine National Police said.

Police officers are employees of a law enforcement agency in their country.

They are warranted by the government to enforce the law by arresting criminals and detecting and preventing crimes.

Meanwhile, Police Col. Ildebrandi Usana said the “Mariang Pulis” highlighted how women all over the world had proven to be among the most efficient members of any workforce.

"They were trained on driving, shooting, arresting techniques and other police operation and intervention procedures such as checkpoint, automated fingerprint identification system and first aid, among others,” she said.

"Mariang Pulis, as a show window, will also tell the world that the PNP is a gender-friendly organization,” Usana said.

Maria, a coastal municipality that is fast becoming a popular tourist destination for its white sand beaches and mystical folktales, took the government’s program of women empowerment one step further by setting up a police force entirely composed of female officers.

“This move will strongly advance women empowerment in promoting public safety and security services at all levels of police units and offices in the region,” Police Brig. Gen. Debold Sinas, Central Visayas police director, said in a statement.

The PNP launched “Mariang Pulis” that seemed to be a spinoff of “Mamang Pulis,” which implied a male-dominated police force.

The all-female police station operates with 21 officers, said to be the ideal size for a municipality larger than Maria, which is 53.4 square kilometers, or about 15 percent of Siquijor’s total land area.

At the police station’s launching ceremony, Siquijor Gov. Zaldy Villa said the preference for women in the province’s police force, led by its police director, Police Col. Angela Rejano, would prove that it was a peaceful community.

Sa kadahilanan nais makatulong parin sa kuya nya dito sa Korea at Pamilya, ang kapatid sa Pilipinas.Ng dahil sa pangarap at hindi naasahang naaksidente sa minahan dahil sa "air poisoning ".

What is the most dangerous air poisoning in a mining site?
According to our research the Carbon Monoxide (CO)

What is Carbon Monoxide?
It is a colourless, odourless, and tasteless gas that is slightly less dense than air. In the atmosphere, CO is produced from incomplete combustion and is present in exhaust gasses of vehicles and other engines, as well as from the combustion of most fuels. It is also produced in low quantities as part of normal metabolic processes.

If encountered in concentrations above 35ppm it is highly toxic to haemoglobic animals (including humans). The most common symptoms of CO poisoning include headaches, vomiting, dizziness, confusion, disorientation, visual disturbance, fainting, and seizures to name a few. CO poisoning is the most common type of fatal air poisoning. Once CO is inhaled, CO combines with haemoglobin to produce carboxyhaemoglobin, which becomes ineffective at delivering oxygen around the body. Oxygen levels are displaced in the blood causing vital organs to starve and therefore, causing people to suffocate and lose consciousness. CO poisoning is often irreversible as CO molecules will not detach from haemoglobin.

Rest in peace to our kabayan!

Reimpostion of "Death Penalty" in the Philippines re-filed by Sen. Ronald "Bato" Dela Rosa

In Manila, Philippines Senator Ronald “Bato” Dela Rosa believes that the imposing of the death penalty can fixed everything.

Dela Rosa aired this sentiment when asked in an interview if former Calauan Mayor Antonio Sanchez should be qualified for early release through the good conduct time allowance law (GCTA).

Sanchez was convicted for raping and killing University of the Philippines-Los Baños student Eileen Sarmenta, as well as the murder of her friend and schoolmate Allan Gomez in 1993.

"Only if they would obey me,  that person should be dead already. We must have been killed before, sadly we dont have death penalties,"Dela Rosa said.
If there would be death penalties, that cures everything. Even if it's the drug lord that is up to this day if there is still nagtra-transact drug business outside, we can no longer conduct the drug they are bursting with because it is dead, so that it should be. \" Dela Rosa said

To simplify everything, restore death penalty to finish everything that is related to it,”  added the senator, who has filed a bill seeking the reimposition of the capital punishment.

Dela Rosa, who served as head of the Bureau of Corrections, was dragged  into the controversy surrounding the implementation of the  GCTA law.
During his six-month stint last year, the senator admitted signing the release orders of 120 heinous crimes convicts.
But Dela Rosa insisted that the release order was in accordance with the law and its implementing rules and regulations.
