University of the Philippines-Visayas Political Science Professor Dr. Rosalie A. Hall is pushing for a review of the Philippine Water Code, among others. “Water is not a free good,” Dr. Hall said in her talk. Emphasizing that water is technically owned by the state, Dr. Hall said that people can use and develop water resources through permits or concessions.

Among other things, the Water Code of the Philippines laid down the basic principles and framework relating to the appropriation, control and conservation of water resources.  This leads to the optimum development and rational use of these resources. This Code also defined the extent of the rights and obligations of water users.

Dr. Windell L. Rivera, associate professor of microbiology of the University of the Philippines(UP) Diliman, won the 2014 National Research Council of the Philippines (NRCP) Eusebio Y. Garcia Recognition Award for Molecular Biology and Molecular Pathology. Dr. Rivera received the award during the NRCP’s “Symposium on Dengue Researches and 81st Founding Anniversary” held last month at the Bayleaf Hotel in Intramuros, Manila. This conferment also earned him the NRCP Medallion and Plaque of Excellenceand a cash prize of P25,000.

Dr. Rivera ranks among the most celebrated local medical scientists and experts on molecular biology of various disease-causing microorganisms. His pioneering work in parasitology significantly augmented limited information on a variety of pathogens, in particular, the locally abundant swine-derived Balantidium coli, a harmful protozoan which Dr. Rivera successfully characterized at ultra structural and molecular levels.
