Ministry of Education has responded to warnings from the Government Center for Tests, Quality Control and Researches at the Ministry of Public Works and decided to shut down Latifah Al-Fares High School for Girls at Fahaheel in Ahmadi Educational Area, thus transferring 700 students therein due to report that buildings of the school are no longer safe, reports Al-Rai daily.

The daily quoting a source explained that the concretes were detected to have cracked, indicating the structures could collapse at any moment. He said the Educational Facilities Sector decided to shut down the school and include it on the list of structures to be pulled down for reconstruction, and excluded the school from those in service for academic year 2018/2019.

He informed that immediately after the decision was taken to shut down the school, the problem concerning the mechanism of distributing the students to other schools surfaced. He indicated one of the two schools selected for this purpose is not at Fahaheel, so concerned students and their parents were confused.

If Wataniya Airways fails again to tackle these problems, it will be stripped of the license permanently.

An investigation into a deadly plane crash at Nepal's international airport has blamed the captain who wept and suffered an emotional breakdown during the flight after his skills had been questioned, according to a draft of the report leaked Monday (Aug 27).


The Mar 12 flight from the Bangladeshi capital Dhaka crash-landed at Kathmandu airport and skidded into a football field where it burst into flames, killing 51 people in the deadliest aviation accident in the Himalayan nation for decades.

The draft copy of the final investigation report, seen by AFP, concludes the US-Bangla Airlines captain was "under stress and emotionally disturbed" after a female co-worker had "questioned his reputation as a good instructor".

"This mistrust and stress led him to continuously smoke in the cockpit and also suffer an emotional breakdown several times during the flight," it says.

Captain Abid Sultan was "crying and sneezing on several occasions during the flight", it adds.

During the short flight from Dhaka to Kathmandu, Sultan - a former Bangladesh Air Force pilot who was also an instructor for the airline - talked non-stop as he tried to impress upon the junior co-pilot his competence and proficiency.

The captain's constant monologue led to the "total disorientation" of the co-pilot, who was flying the plane when it crashed. Prithula Rashid had only recently qualified and had never previously landed at Kathmandu airport.

Nepal's only international airport lies in a narrow bowl-shaped valley with the Himalayas to the north, making it a notoriously challenging place to land.

The wreckage of the airplane that crashed near the international airport in Kathmandu in March: an official report has blamed the pilot


As the Bombardier Dash 8 Q400 turboprop approached the runway it made a last-minute change of direction, failed to sufficiently reduce its speed and did not carry out the necessary landing checks, investigators said.

The report revised the final death toll up to 51, including both pilots. Twenty passengers miraculously escaped the burning wreckage but sustained serious injuries.


Conflicting reports that emerged shortly after the crash had suggested confusion between the pilot and air traffic control may have caused the accident.

The report said air traffic control did confuse the two ends of the runway - referred to as "Runway 02" and "Runway 20" - but concluded "this had no impact on the flight".

A source at Nepal's Tourism Ministry, which led the probe into the crash, confirmed the authenticity of the draft.

The accident was Nepal's deadliest since September 1992, when all 167 people aboard a Pakistan International Airlines plane were killed when it crashed as it approached Kathmandu airport.

Just two months earlier a Thai Airways aircraft had crashed near the same airport, killing 113 people.

Nepal's poor air safety record is largely blamed on inadequate maintenance and sub-standard management. Accidents are common and Nepal-based airlines are banned from flying in European Union airspace.

Rebranding Boracay into a normal tourist destination instead of a party island comparable to Ibiza or Majorca will be the government's priority with its reopening, Tourism Secretary Bernadette Romulo-Puyat said Wednesday.


"It won't really be a party place anymore. We want it to be as it is, more peaceful, and we want to promote sustainable tourism," Puyat said in an interview on ANC.

Puyat believes the move will not affect Boracay's yearly income of $1 billion as tourist arrivals in the country during the island's months-long closure did not let up.

"Tourism arrivals increased by 11.35 percent. That was a surprise for me because I thought it would dip because of the closure of Boracay," said Puyat, who thanked the private sector for diverting tourists to other Philippine destinations.

She repeated President Rodrigo Duterte's policy of prohibiting casinos on the island, months after plans to build a $500-million integrated casino-resort on Boracay were shelved.

"There will be no casinos on Boracay," Puyat said. "We follow the President's directive."

An ad campaign is underway for the soft opening of Boracay on October 26.

Aside from limiting the number of guests on the island and establishing a curfew, the island will also see e-tricycles donated by the Department of Energy exclusively used in its streets.

Puyat said she will meet with the secretaries of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources and Department of the Interior and Local Government to discuss the state of Boracay before its reopening.

Some 300 to 1,000 caregiver jobs in Japan will be up for grabs for Filipinos in the next few months, according to the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA).


In his report on Balitanghali on Thursday, GMA News' JP Soriano said the guidelines for the Japanese government’s Technical Internship Training Program (TITP) have been finalized and are expected to be signed for implementation in September.

POEA deputy administrator Jocelyn Sanchez said applicants should keep an eye out for more job orders coming from POEA-licensed recruitment agencies.

"Mag-abang and mag-prepare na rin 'yung mga tao sa mga documents niya," she said.

The salary under the TITP has yet to be disclosed. However, according to the POEA, care workers in Japan are paid more compared to other Asian and European countries.

The goverment agency said it was possible that the salary would start at no less than P50,000 to P70,000 per month.

The POEA said applicants, apart from finishing a course on caregiving, are not necessarily required to be fluent in Niponggo.

"Pag napili ka, sila 'yung bahala du'n sa...language training fee mo," Sanchez said.

Aside from the TITP, the POEA is also coordinating with the Chinese government regarding 1,000 jobs for Filipino English teachers.

In the mean time, the POEA advised job-seekers to monitor job orders posted on www.poea.gov.ph. and be cautious about bogus recruiters.
