By Susil D. Ragas

SAN JOSE, Dinagat Islands, Dec. 5 (PIA) – The office of the Provincial Information here conducted a two-day follow through and Enhancement Training for Webpage Managers held recently at the News MPC Function Hall, San Jose, this province.

Provincial Information Officer Millard P. Tawakal said the training aims to provide pedagogical information, response to the governments’ requirements and to serve as an effective, organized online information environment to gender-related issues and concerns in an online environment.

He said webpage managers must ensure that the content of a website is well-structured and easy to find and that it meets the needs of its readers by covering all necessary topics and being up to date and accurate.

“The internet has become an extremely useful tool for travelers and tourists. It provides a wealth of information on destinations, resources for planning trips, and reviews from previous visitors,” Tawakal said.

“Through the website, the implemented programs of Provincial Government per office will be shown. With this, the creation of a website can stimulate tourism which opens more windows of opportunities to the constituents of the province,” he added.

During the training, TESDA Specialist Roland B. Hoyle explained thoroughly the elements of the website and its flow charts for the enlightenment of webpage managers.

Hoyle also gave some tips on how to make the clients and visitors easily access the website.

Meanwhile, the Information Communication Technology (ICT) Division team showed the website structure of the Province of Dinagat Islands as partial output. (SDR/PIO-Dinagat Islands/PIA-Dinagat Islands)

Tagalog News: YLS dinaluhan ng mahigit 100 kabataan sa Cantilan

By Nida Grace P. Barcena

LUNGSOD NG TANDAG, Dis. 5 (PIA) – Umabot sa 107 kabataan ang lumahok sa “1st Cantilan Youth Leadership Summit” (YLS) na matagumpay na ginanap sa Libtong Cove, sakop ng Barangay General Island, Cantilan, Surigao del Sur noong Nobyembre 22-25, 2018, ayon sa opisyal ng military.

Napag-alaman mula kay Captain Francisco Garello Jr., na nagmula pa sa 17 barangay na sakop ng bayan sa Cantilan ang mga kabataang lumahok sa nasabing aktibidad.

Dagdag pa ni Garello, layunin nito na mapanatili sa kaisipan at sa puso ng bawat kabataan ang adbokasiyang boluntaryo para sa kapayapaan, maging responsible, at produktibong myembro ng lipunan na may mahusay o tamang na kaalaman.

Isa sa mga lumahok ang nagpaabot ng kanyang ekspektasyon patungkol sa kanyang nais na makamtan o malaman sa nasabing pagtitipon. Sinabi ni Evelyn Angeles na, “dumalo ako para malaman ang tamang gawi ng isang lider, at upang magiging magandang halimbawa sa mga kabataang katribu ng aming barangay.”

Samantala, dumalo din si Mayor Philip Pichay bilang pangunahing pandangal at tagapagsalita, kung saan ibinahagi niya ang ang salitang “hanap-buhay” na may kahulugan na “maghanap ng paraan para mabuhay” bilang pagbigay inspirasyon sa mga kabataang dumalo. Binigyang diin pa ng opisyal na kung nakatuon dito ang mga kabataan, siguradong maganda ang maging kinabukasan ng mga ito, dahil mailalayo ito sa mga aktibidad na maaring makakasira ng kanilang kinabukasan.

Binigyang diin din ni Lt. Colonel Xerxes Trinidad, commanding officer ng 36IB na kabilang sa kanilang mandato ang pagsilbihan at proteksyunan ang mamayang Pilipino at binigyang diin nito na mapahalagahan ang isa sa mga sector ng lipunan, ang mga kabataan.

“With this summit, as part of our security awareness campaign, our hope is to save the youth from being exploited and recruited by the CPP-NPA Terrorist and other lawless elements,” sabi pa ni Trinidad.

Ang nasabing pagtitipon ay sinuportahan ng lokal na pamahalaan ng Cantilan sa pakikipagtulungan na rin ng 36IB, Philippine Army na siyang nag-organisa na gawin ang aktibidad sa nasabing bayan sa unang pagkakataon. (PIA-Surigao del Sur)
