Unscheduled 5-hour brownout hits Malaybalay, 3 Bukidnon towns

MALAYBALAY CITY (MindaNews/27 January) — The entire city and the towns of Lantapan and Cabanglasan experienced power interruption from 6:38p.m to 11:45pm Tuesday. Ten of Talakag town’s 29 barangays and another one in Valencia City, all under the Bukidnon Second Electric Cooperative (Buseco) were also in darkness. In an advisory past 7pm, Buseco said the 69kV sub-transmission line from Maramag town to Brgy. Aglayan, Malaybalay tripped. The power utility did not explain why the trip-off occurred, except to say they were still coordinating with the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP). Elizabeth Ladaga, NGCP communications officer, however, told this reporter the transmission line is now owned and managed by the Bukidnon Sub-transmission Corporation (BSTC), a consortium composed of Buseco and First Bukidnon Electric Cooperative. The line was turned over to BSTC in June 2015, she added. BSTC general manager Nikki Tortola did not respond to text queries as of 8pm Tuesday. Ladaga said in a text message around 1:40a.m. Wednesday that the line was fully re-energized at 11:45p.m. Tuesday after BSTC personnel finished replacing two insulators and cleaning two others. Asked why Buseco said they had to coordinate with NGCP on the cause of the power interruption when the latter said BSTC should be asked about it: “True, BSTC still has to coordinate with (NGCP) Maramag substation because the Maramag-Aglayan line (owned by BSTC) is connected with the substation and relays and breakers are inside the Maramag substation,” she explained. The brownout occurred while midterm examinations were being held at Bukidnon State University forcing proctors and examinees to use mobile phone flashlights while waiting for generators to be turned on. An administration official said the auto start mechanism of the generators did not function and it had to be manually operated. Affected residents vented their ire on the unscheduled brownout on social media. (Walter I. Balane/Mindanews)

South Pole Explorer Henry Worsley Dies in Record Attempt #HenryWorsley

Henry Worsley, a 55-year-old British ex-army officer, and a veteran polar explorer died due to organ failure on Sunday.

Henry’s quest ended in a tragic way. He was on an attempt to cross the Antarctic continent solo, unsupported, and unaided using the route suggested by Sir Ernest Shackleton, also a polar explorer who was named as one of the principal figures of the period known as the Heroic Age of Antarctic Exploration (1917).


Henry had been on the ice field alone for 71 days. He was able to cover about 913 miles in his journey. Unfortunately, he suffered from severe exhaustion, dehydration, and severe stomach pains, wrote National Geographic.

Explorer Henry Worsley dies attempting Antarctic

He was 30 miles away from his final destination when he called for a rescue.

Henry was aware of the possible dangers and challenges that await him. Before his departure for the said mission, he said:

I know I’m going to suffer for the first few weeks, and I know I’m going to have bad days.. But I’m generally a cup-half-full man, so I’ll grit my teeth and get on with it.

Worsley replied when asked why he wanted to do the perilous trip alone:

On my previous trips I was always part of a team, and so this time I wanted to have the clarity of making all my own decisions. I’ve always sort of lived by the phrase.. Try something you could fail at. We all do things that we can comfortably achieve, but rarely do we set the high bar one notch above what we think we can clear, and that’s what’s driving me on here.

RIP Henry Worsley.

Want to experience white water rafting in Cagayan de Oro? Better do it real soon as the Oro Association of Rafters or OAR is now set to increase the uniform rates. In a letter-request accompanied by a resolution duly signed by all member rafting outfitters addressed to CDO Vice Mayor Ian Acenas through Tourism Committee Chairman Councilor Candy Darimbang, OAR reasoned that the old rates were established in 2008 and since then, no price increases were implemented. OAR reasoned that there’s a need to address the wear and tear of the rafting equipment, which are usually sourced from overseas, and
