BATAAN, Philippines,December 11, 2013 - The Bataan Provincial Government led by Hon. Albert S. Garcia, governor,will ink out a partnership with the country’s No. 1 job site, JobStreet.com to provide Bataeños (the residents of the province) with their dream jobs via the newly-launched provincial portal.
This latest public and private partnership agreement will be signed on December 11, while coinciding with the launch of the 1Bataan Website (www.1bataan.com). As a whole, the brand new community portal aims to empower residents of the province with information on health services, education, business, environment, tourism, the agro-economy and more importantly jobs, among others.
“According to the survey, we had noted that the primary concern of our constituents is employment. They want to know where they can find jobs. And this project is a way of providing them their utmost need,” says Gov. Garcia during a meeting with representatives from the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) Provincial Office, the different Public Employment Service Offices (PESOs) of the province and JobStreet.com last November 27 at Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar in Bagac.
The partnership features a job site powered by JobStreet.com that can be accessed via www.1bataan.com/jobs. The said career page will house job ads posted by Bataan-based employers- large companies and small-medium enterprises alike. Local PESOs and hiring organizations will be provided with intense trainings on the use of the back-end software so that they can post jobs, monitor applications and placement of candidates and generate reports to help them improve recruitment and hiring.
Meanwhile with the new job page, Bataan job-intenders can now apply without even going to the nearest PESO or hiring companies. They can just sign up for an online account with JobStreet.com; browse through the jobs at www.1bataan.com/jobs and apply. For those who walk in to PESOs, JobStreet.com will enrol them to the Bataan database system through the DOLE-required Skills Registry System Form. All those who have signed up online and were enrolled by JobStreet.com into the system shall receive job vacancy alerts either via email courtesy of Jobstreet.com and/or text blast from PESO-Bataan.

DINALUPIHAN, Bataan - Children from 16 Catholic schools in Bataan on Tuesday showered 840 pupils from public elementary schools in Dinalupihan town with story narration on Christmas in 16 countries in the form of dances and songs.
Bishop Ruperto C. Santos said that aside from the dance and song presentations, school supplies, toothbrush and tooth paste, among some other items, were given to the children as early Christmas gifts.
“Ipinapakita natin na ang bata ay tumutulong sa kanyang kapwa bata ganoon din ang private schools ay tumutulong sa public schools lalo na ngayong Pasko na nangangahulugan ng pagbibigayan at pagmamahalan,” he said.
Santos said the beneficiaries were public school pupils in Grades IV and VI.
Rev. Fr. Roy Guila, superintendent of Diocesan Schools in Bataan, said the early Christmas treat to children in public schools is a project of Bishop Santos going on its second year.
The participants coming from schools under the Diocese of Balanga and other Catholic educational institutions wore costumes of countries they represented and interpreted through songs and dances how Christmas is being celebrated
BALANGA City, Bataan - A cathedral-shaped big belen, life-sized replica of angels and tall Christmas trees highlighted the Christmas decorations just opened by the Central Atrium Residences adjacent to the Roman Superhighway in Balanga City.
Sales Agent Aileen Arbitrario said their architects and enginners led by their manager Rexfil David designed and made the decorations. “Gawa ang mga ito mostly sa dried grasses, dried trees at recycled materials,” she said.
Anna Marie Pablo, Sales manager, said last year’s Christmas decorations were more expensive and lightings brighter. “Ngayon nag-cost-cutting kami to symphatize sa mga nasalanta ni Yolanda,” she said.
Pablo said Central Atrium has so far collected P399,152 in cash for donation to victims of the killer-typhoon in the Visayas.
Some families seemed to enjoy the sights with children hoping from one replica of an angel to another.
“Maganda, kakaiba. Wala akong nakikitang ganito sa Bataan,” said Danilo Aguilar of barangay Central in Balanga City. The old man was with his grandchild, wife and children. “Sosyal,” remarked a daughter.
ABUCAY, Bataan - Nakawiwiling pagmasdan ang mga ibong dayong nanginginain ng maliliit na isda sa bahagi ng palaisdaan sa tabi ng MacArthur Highway sa Mabatang, Abucay, Bataan Linggo ng tanghali. Waring nakikiramdam ang mga ibong Egret na itinataas ang mahahabang leeg at humihinto sandali sa pagtuka ng makakaing isda sa mababaw na tubig ng palaisdaan. Lilipad lang ng kaunti ang malalaking puting ibon ngunit muling bumabalik. Ang mga ibong Tern naman ay walang hinto sa paglipad at mabilis na pagsisid upang manghuli ng maliliit na isda malapit sa kinakainan ng mga Egret. Naririnig ang kanilang huni habang lumilipad. Ang Egret at Tern ay dalawa lamang sa maraming uri ng ibong dayong “nagbabakasyon” sa Bataan. Ang barangay Mabatang ay halos limang kilometro ang layo sa Balanga City kung saan ginanap noong Biyernes ang ika-apat na taong Ibong Dayo Festival. Ang mga ibon na tumatawid ng malawak na karagatan upang marating ang Pilipinas ay mula sa mainland Asia tulad ng China, Taiwan at Japan upang takasan ang nagyeyelong winter months. Dumarating ang mga ibon sa huling linggo ng Setyembre hanggang unang linggo ng Oktubre at bumabalik na muli sa bansang pinagmulan bago sumapit ang Abril.
