Negros Occidental seeing reduced power rates
BACOLOD CITY -- The northern and southern Negros Occidental power rates have dropped by P2.8376 and P3.8983, respectively, in October. The Northern Negros Electric Cooperative (NONECO) announced on Wednesday, October 20, that its power rate for October is P11.1328 per kWh or a decrease of P2.8376 from last month. The decrease is attributed to the low cost of electricity purchased from the Wholesale Electricity Spot Market (WESM) with an average price of P3.5585 per kWh, and the deferment in the collection of congestion cost and line rental until the restoration of the damaged National Grid Corporation of the Philippines Cebu-Negros submarine cable, a NONECO advisory said.

Nananakit ang katawan pagka-ehersisyo
Isa sa mga rekomendasyon dahil nabartolina tayo sa ating mga tahanan dahil sa pandemya ay magkikikilos at magehersisyo pa din. Sa totoo lang, hindi naman kinakailangan talagang lumabas ng bahay para mag exercise. Ngunit may mga nagrereklamo at nagtatanong kung bakit nananakit ang katawan pagkatapos mag exercise. “Ito ay dapat nakakabuti sa ating katawan, pero bakit masakit. May mga pagkakataon pang hindi makakilos at makagalaw makailang araw na. Tama ba ito? O may mali akong ginagawa?” Ang sagot dito ay oo at hindi. Maraming mga instructional videos na mapapanood sa social media at Youtube na pwedeng sundan pero dapat sundan ng maigi para hindi masaktan at mapwersa.
