If online surveys of the first leg of the presidential debates held at the Capitol University in Cagayan de Oro City are to be believed, Liberal Party standard bearer Mar Roxas and Davao Mayor Rodrigo Duterte were the top winners and vice president Jejomar Binay was in last place.
But for the presidential candidates' supporters in Negros Occidental, each of their bets performed the best, depending on which camp they belong to.
Livelihood and multi-educational facilities worth P13.7 million were donated by Virlanie Foundation and Association Mondiale des Amis De l'Enfence (AMADE) to the Tiglawigan Elementary School in Barangay Tiglawigan, Cadiz City, Saturday.
Virlanie and AMADE-Mondiale, foundations from France and Monaco, donated seven school buildings containing 14 classrooms complete with facilities, a canteen, restroom, and a stage. After typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) struck the Philippines, Barangay Tiglawigan was the most devastated in Cadiz City.

Foundation University in Dumaguete City is fully ready for the implementation of the K-12 program with some solutions to the senior high school program featured at its annual exposition, recently.
The university held its annual exposition for three days at the Robinsons Place mall in Dumaguete, as a “promotional tool” and to share with the community its accomplishments over the past years, FU president Victor Vicente Sinco said.
Featured in the exposition are academic, vocational and sports tracks, among others, that are made available as the university starts shifting towards the K-12 program as required by the Commission on Higher Education, Sinco said in an interview. .
