THE MYSTICAL BIRTH OF DR. HILARIO CAMINO MONCADO
Hilario Camino Moncado was born on a blessed night at 11:11 P.M. with a ray of bright light, November 4, 1898, in Sitio Pondol, Balamban, Cebu, Philippine Islands. His parents were Filomena Camino and Gregorio Moncado who was both a merchant and a farmer.
The phenomenal time of his birth was a quadruplet power from God the Almighty bestowed upon him. Hilario Camino Moncado was born for the sake of humanity. The power of equality was bestowed upon him for humanity which is the foundation for the success of the Spirit dwelling within our midst. His Kingdom has come to the world and reign for another two thousand years starting November 4, 2002 at Sitio Malacoma of the Island Garden City of Samal, Philippines-THE SEAT OF EQUI FRILI BRIUM (EFB) ERA.
On that blessed night, a ray of light from a big star, a comet guided his father and the ‘hilot’-midwife, Andrea on their way back home-since the coconut frond ‘sulo’, they used to illumine their way ran out of fire. To their amazement, their way was illumined by a bright star guiding to the house of Gregorio Moncado. When they arrived-the ‘hilot’ heard the cry of the child inside the womb of the mother and when the child was born-he came out to the world so clean, colored pale gold, no blood stain and no more umbilical cord. He was born untainted of any motherly blood stain-dirt for “HE WAS THE CHOSEN ONE.” Angels from heaven cuddled him so dearly at the time of His Spiritual Birth and Material Birth.
To this day-the comet, the rays of light are being seen by HIS CHOSEN ONES TO CONTINUE HIS MISSION; to revive, serve and convince his fellowmen. His religion, his belief, his creed and tenets, that the world in his country. We cannot serve human beings unless we live in WISDOM & MORALITY.
At the age of three (3) years-numerical number of the Holy Trinity-, his parents already found in him Mystical Signs for he will just disappear along the beach while playing with the ‘manglas’ of the sea. His weary parents looked for him everywhere, full of worries, and all of a sudden he will just appear in an instant coming from nowhere. Myth says that whenever he is lost, he takes a swim at the fathomless depths of Cambuhawe ethereal and mystical spring, now becoming into a beautiful resort in Balamban, Cebu, Philippines.
At the tender age of only six years old, he was sent by his father to India, for the chief purpose of attending the famous College of Mystery and Psychics, known as the College of Mystery in Calcutta, India. Young Moncado studied the universal mystery of nature. He graduated with honors at the age of nine (9) and obtained the degrees of Philosophy in Kabala; Doctor of Philosophy in Numerology and Doctor of Philosophy in Human Nature. His grandfather Captain Mangki from Loon, Bohol-a gifted spiritual man took the responsibility in sending him to the College of Mystery in Calcutta, India.
The degree of Doctor in Philosophy, termed Kabala is the highest degree in that country. Incidentally, Moncado has the rare distinction of finishing an eight-year course in a span of three (3) years.
Right after his graduation, he wrote a book in the Kabalistic language, entitled “EQUIFRILIBRICUM”, meaning EQUALITY, FRATERNITY, and LIBERTY. Someday, the Book will be translated into the English language. To date over five hundred million people in India read the Kabalistic language of his book.
During this period he travelled extensively. One of his Mystic and Psychic Masters accompanied him through India, China, Japan, Korea, Africa, New Zealand, Borneo, Sumatra, Java, Celebes, Australia, and the entire Philippine Archipelago.
He was called home by his parents at the age of ten and remained with them for six months, after which he returned to India for the important purpose of teaching at the College of Sages in Calcutta, which is a preparatory school of the Indian College of Mystery. – to be continued for the next issue……….



Environmental group finds toxic additives in some plastic PVC toys
Read 461 times | Posted on November 28, 2014 @ 4 years ago

The EcoWaste Coalition, a public interest environmental network promoting chemical safety and children’s health, pressed the government to act against the sale of plastic toys laden with toxic chemicals commonly found in soft polyvinyl chloride (PVC) toys.
“The Department of Health (DOH) made the right decision in 2011 to prohibit certain phthalates in toys as a precaution against childhood exposure to these toxic plasticizers, which are capable of disrupting human hormonefunctions and resulting to serious health issues, including what scientists call as ‘phthalate syndrome’,” said Thony Dizon, Coordinator of the EcoWaste Coalition’s Project Protect.
“Phthalate syndrome” refers to a host of male reproductive abnormalities linked to exposure to some phthalates such as undescended testes, malformation of the penis, reduced sperm count and infertility. In girls,phthalate exposure is associated with precocious puberty characterized by premature breast development and other early pubertal changes.
“But almost three years have gone by and we still findphthalate-contaminated toys in the market,” lamented Dizon.
To prove his point, Dizon identified several PVC toys that the EcoWaste Coalition bought from discount stores and shopping malls and sent abroad for laboratory analysis using Gas Chromotographic – Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS) to determine if the samples contain phthalates DEHP, DBP, BBP,DINP, DIDP and DnOP above the threshold limit of 0.1 percent by weight.
As per laboratory studies, the following items were found to contain elevated levels of the restricted phthalates, which would make them illegal to sell in the Philippines as well as in Europe, US and even in China:
1. A green vinyl squeaky frog with 34.5% DINP and 0.295% DIDP
2. A “Power Puff Girl” squeaky toy with 20.49 % DINP and 0.185% DBP
3. A “Little Ones Nap Time Doll Crib Set” vinyl doll with 16.70% DEHP
4. A “Shrilling Chicken” toy with 13.22% DBP
5. An unlabeled doll with 9.10% DIDP and 0.21% DBP
6. A “Spence” soft vinyl ball with 7.08% DEHP and 0.284% DINP
7. A “Funny Toys” kiddie boxing gloves with 6.75 % DEHP
8. A yellow play chair with “Winnie the Pooh” vinyl seat with 1.5% DEHP
“We support DOH’s full implementation of the restrictions it has fittingly imposed to prevent and reduce childhood exposure to phthalates,” stated Dizon.
“We advise the public to steer clear of toys bearing the plastic identification code number 3 or labeled as PVC or V (vinyl) that may be laden with phthalates and other hidden toxic additives,” he added.
Health Secretary Enrique Ona on December 14, 2011 signed a directive amending DOH A.O. 2009-0005, making “it unlawful for any person to manufacture for sale, offer for sale, distribute in commerce, or import into the country any children’s toys that contains concentrations of morethan 0.1 percent by weight of di-(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP), dibutyl phthalate (DBP), or benzyl butyl phthalate (BBP).”
The directive further prohibits the sale of “any children’s toy that can be placed in a child’s mouth that contains concentrations of more than 0.1 % by weight of diisononyl phthalate (DINP), diisodecyl phthalate (DIDP), ordi-n-octyl phthalate (DnOP).
The EcoWaste Coalition’s latest advisory on toxic chemicals in certain toys is part of the group’s ongoing pre-Christmas campaign on “Kid-Safe Toys for Zero Harm and Zero Waste.” (PNA)



Simultaneous BBL consultations held in Iligan, Lanao del Norte, Pagadian
Read 468 times | Posted on November 28, 2014 @ 4 years ago

By Cheng Ordonez

ILIGAN City – The Ad Hoc Committee on the Bangsamoro Basic Law of the House of Representatives conducted simultaneous consultations in three areas in Mindanao Friday, Nov. 28, 2014.
The consultations were conducted in Iligan City, Tubod in Lanao del Norte and Pagadian City.

Misamis Occidental Second District Representative Henry Oaminal, senior vice chairman of the BBL Ad Hoc Committee, presided over the consultation in Iligan City.

With Rep. Oaminal were Representatives Rodolfo Biazon (Lone District of Muntinlupa), Celso Lobregat (Lone District of Zamboanga City), Edgardo Masongsong (1-Care Partylist), Carlos Isagani Zarate (Bayan Muna Partylist), Vicente Belmonte (Lone District of Iligan), Maximo Rodriguez and Ansaruddin Adiong (1st Dist. of Lanao del Sur).

Second District Representative Tupay Loong, vice chairman of the Ad Hoc Committee, presided over the consultation in Tubod, Lanao del Norte, while Rep. Raymond Mendoza, also vice chairman, presided over the Pagadian consultation.

Rep. Oaminal said although Iligan is not included in the core territory of the Bangsamoro, its strategic importance and the insights and experiences to be shared by Iliganons will help strengthen the Bangsamoro Basic Law.

Rep. Oaminal said the tri-people of Mindanao can look at the success of Iligan City as an industrial area and become a benchmark in drafting the economic policies for the Bangsamoro.

Rep. Oaminal said he hopes that the Bangsamoro will not only take the experiences of Iligan on inclusive growth, but also physical independence on economy.

Meanwhile, Rep. Biazon said he sees “flickering light” at the end of the “tunnel of peace,” and this flickering light will become full blown only if the stakeholders in the peace process will compromise their stand towards he attainment of lasting peace.
