February 21, 2018: *** Gov. Edgar Chatto and DepEd Bohol Division Superintendent Dr. Wilfreda Bongalos led Provincial Government and DepEd officials in the blessing of the newly rehabilitated CPG Sports Complex to make it ready for use during Bohol's hosting of CVRAA 2018 which opens on Feb. 25 *** Pre-CVRAA activities in Bohol will begin on February 23 and will officially open on Feb. 25 with a holy mass at 2pm, followed by a parade at 3:30pm which will lead to the CPG Sports Complex. ***Bohol will host 11,737 delegates from 19 divisions in the whole of Central Visayas for 2018 Central Visayas Regional Athletic Association (CVRAA) 2018 hosting, according to DepEd Superintendent Dr. Wilfreda Bongalos. ***Gov. Edgar Chatto bared that Bohol got 48% increase in production of rice, the highest record in the country in 2017, as confirmed by the Department of Agriculture (DA). *** PDEA-7 Director Emerson Margate said that PDEA which leads the oversight committee still needs to review the drug status of 500 barangays in Bohol before confirming them as drug free. *** Over a year into the government's nationwide campaign against narcotics trade, none of Bohol's 1,109 barangays have officially been recognized as drug-free by the regional oversight committee that assess drug presence in villages. *** Gov. Edgar Chatto and DA-7 Director Leo Caneda led the ribbon cutting and opening exhibits of the 3-day 18th Ubi Festival today. This year's festival is themed: "Ubi, Hamiling Lagutmon Ikapasigarbo sa mga Turista sa Tanang Panahon."

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)
