October 18, 2017: *** The newly-restored Holy Trinity Parish Church of Loay is formally turned-over on Sunday October 15, 2017 from the National Historical Commission of the Philippines (NHCP) to the Diocese of Tagbilaran through Bishop Alberto Uy. ***For the very first time, Bohol landed among the 14 finalists in the search for thr Most Business-Friendly Province in the country. ***PDEA-Bohol Head Agent Nicholas Gomez admitted that the drug problem in Bohol persists despite the reduction of supply of shabu coming from Cebu. *** The administration of the Bohol District Jail is now planning to acquire an x-ray machine as part of its crackdown on the entry of contraband into the jail facility, said BDJ Warden Jail Chief Insp. Felipe Montejo. *** DILG-Bohol conducted People's Forum on Federalism on October 17, 2017 at JJ's Seafood Village with city/municipal information officers and CSO/Faith-Based Representatives as participants. ***Schools across the province are expected to conduct make-up classes in lieu of class suspensios due to the two-a nationwide raspot astrike, according toDepEdBohol SchoolVGovernace and Operations Division Chief Desiderio Delgero. ***The province is bent on making history by getting a UNESCO recognition as a global geological park, the first for Philippines. ***The symbolic unveiling of the Geomarker at the Chocolate Hills Complex on Sunday will boost Bohol's application for UNESCO declaration of the entire province as a global geological park.

LED: new wonders In light technology 
COMPACT fluorescent lamps, (CFL) move over. 
CFL may be hip, but in the near future, modern light technologies would be led by light-emitting diodes (LED). 
LED may soon be the best eco-solution to the world’s power problems, agreed scientists from the government energy department. 
At least, this too was what a senior science research specialist at the Department of Energy (DOE) thinks and revealed during an quick press conference at Alumar Island off Getafe town November 25. 
To prove his point, DOE’s Magdaleno Baclay Jr. explained that while 7-watt compact fluorescent lamp is many times brighter than incandescent lamp and saves enough energy, a much smaller LED produces the same brightness at an even smaller wattage. 
He said LED is eight times brighter than a conventional lamp of the same wattage and LED is twice as bright as the compact fluorescent lamp of the same wattage. 
This means that if a household uses five 100-watt bulbs, it uses about.5 kilowatts per hour. On a five hour continuous use, say between six to 11 pm, some 2.5 kilowatts would be used. 
At the current rate of P5.00 per kilowatt, the consumption amounts approximately to P12.5 per night. 
But it that household changes to five 15-watts CFL, which has approximately the same brightness as the 100 watts incandescent light, the power consumption is cut in half as a simple computation would show. 
On the other hand, if that same household switches to LED lights, a 7-watt LED can go as bright as the equivalent of a 20 watts CFL or 100 watts incandescent bulb. 
Imagine the savings and the cut in energy use, Engr. Baclay points out. 
In fact, while LED lights are not as economically viable as of now, studies are in to craft LED lights using new and available technologies at the University of San Carlos, in Cebu, Baclay added. 
While not yet commercially marketing their invention, USC LED sources have already loaned 10-watt led lights in the form of CFLs to Alumar residents who have seen the wisdom of controlling their power consumption even as their source of energy is infinite. (racPIABohol)
