PROFESSOR ERLE ARGONZA SPEAKS AT 2ND ANNUAL PH UFO CONFERENCE

Team Argonza
17 October 2011

Prof. Erle Frayne Argonza, social scientist and spiritual guru, was guest speaker recently during the 2nd Annual PH UFO Conference. Guided by the theme UFO E.T. Presence – the Philippine Link, the conference was sponsored by the UFO Society of the Philippines.

In his paper titled “Philippines-Mu, Earth Changes, Cosmic Awakening,” Prof Argonza presented the background, to wit:

Two contentions today are making ripples across the country: (a) that the Philippines is a remnant of the super-continent of Mu; and, (b) that Earth will ascend back to 4th Dimension on 12/21/12, thus ending a long epoch of 3rd dimensional Earth history. I will shed light on the interconnections of the two contentions, and liberally add mystical theses from me as a Brother of Light/Fellow of the Great White Lodge.

Accordingly, the paper’s goals were as follows:

(1) To present new mystical knowledge regarding the Philippines;
(2) To share insights concerning the place of PH in the forthcoming Planetary ascension; and,
(3) To forecast scenarios about PH changes due to the galactic & planetary changes.

Presenting fresh knowledge and insights about cosmic awakenings, Earth changes and the Philippines’ role in the ongoing changes, the guru’s talk captivated the eager audience. Questions and shared thoughts were then generated from the audience who were largely seekers and freethinkers from all over PH plus some foreigner participants who traveled all the way from overseas to attend the event.

Other resource speakers were:
• Lily Dueñas: Unlocking the Mystery: Philippines’ Extraterrestrial Links and the UFOs
• Neil Gould: Exopolitics: A World View
• Gerard Aartsen (Netherlands): UFOs Herald World Transformation
A well attended conference, with the venue (Air Force Museum) jam packed by a highly enthusiastic audience, the event was very successful. It is the country’s best conference event on the Extraterrestrial issue to date, with very notable speakers who presented papers that were well researched, thus signifying the very high level of authoritativeness on their respective topics.

The conference was characteristically Asian & Filipino in that material science and metaphysical (wisdom) discourse were combined to constitute an integrated frame for understanding the phenomenon. The transphysical factors of higher dimensions, spiritual hierarchy, cosmology and prophecy were intertwined with astrophysics, morphology, exopolitics, and futurology in regard to the “alien question.”

Dr. Jaime Lichauco, among the country’s foremost authorities on paranormal studies, came to grace the occasion. Dr. Lichauco is a professor and veteran journalist, with a regular opinion column at the topgun newspaper Philippine Daily Inquirer and a radio program at the DZMM.

Also appearing to grace the occasion is entertainment industry personality Roy Alvarez. Also a high profile civil society leader with environmentalism & conservationism as his forte, Mr. Alvarez is also mystic and Initiate of the spiritual Brotherhood.

A recently constituted nongovernment organization, the UFO Society of the Philippines is led by its dynamic president Antonio Israel, businessman and emerging Ufologist. Its latest conference was held at the Philippine Air Force Museum in Villamor Airbase, MetroManila.

INDONESIA’S LOCAL GOVERNANCE ON REFORM TRACK

INDONESIA’S LOCAL GOVERNANCE ON REFORM TRACK

Erle Frayne D. Argonza

Indonesia has the largest population in the ASEAN. It is also the economic bloc’s largest economy. Having produced many luminary minds to propel itself to grand visions of prosperity, Indonesia has emerged as the most influential Big Brother nation to its neighbors as its democracy has shown stability worth accolades.

Governance institutions in Indonesia should shore up in terms of strengthening. That means the culture of efficiency, participative culture (partnering with civil society), minimized graft, and related governance indices must improved rapidly in the next couple of years if Indonesia vies for wealth nation status within the bloc and exert leadership in the ASEAN.

Local governance reforms are incidentally on track, though it is too early to pre-judge the results. The reform agenda is still on-going, and it is most fitful for the regional development bank ADB to assist the emerging market in the process.

Below is an update of the reform agenda going on in the country.

ADB $200 Million Loan Supports More Local Government Reforms in Indonesia
4 October 2011
MANILA, PHILIPPINES – The Asian Development Bank (ADB) is extending $200 million to aid Indonesia’s push to develop strong regional governments which can boost growth and cut poverty at the local level.
The ADB Board of Directors has approved a 15-year loan for Subprogram 2 of the Second Local Government Finance and Governance Reform Program. The initiative is helping to boost the financial and management capabilities of regional governments as they handle state finances and services that have been decentralized.
“Since 2001 national government has been devolving key expenditure and revenue functions to regional governments which are now responsible for the delivery of most basic services,” said Juan Luis Gomez, Senior Public Management Specialist at ADB. “Strengthening regional governments so they spend state funds effectively and provide services efficiently and equitably is essential for improving local living standards and reducing poverty.”
The second phase of the program targeted reforms in six core areas, including strengthening local government management of decentralized funds, improving regional administration to boost service delivery, and developing more local revenue sources. Policy actions taken by the national government to support the reforms include the finalization of a comprehensive strategy for fiscal decentralization, the gradual devolution of taxes to local governments, and pioneering steps to introduce gender-based budgeting.
ADB estimates that the direct economic benefits of the program in the medium term will be worth around $820 million, with half the amount due to the improved financial management systems of regional governments and the other half stemming from efficiency improvements in collection of property taxes being devolved to the regions between 2011 and 2014. To build on current gains, ADB has drawn up a post program partnership framework which identifies future reforms to further improve the policy environment and strengthen the institutional capabilities of local governments.
