The latest IT and advanced science books may now be accessed by students and researchers at the Department of Science and Technology’s information agency. Located at the DOST Complex in Bicutan, Taguig City, Metro Manila, the Science and Technology Information Institute (STII) recently acquired the library collection of the Philippine Council for Industry, Energy and Emerging Technology Research and Development (PCIEERD).

With the transfer of the books and materials from PCIEERD to STII, the latter further beefed up its already vast selection of science and technology (S&T) resources being the central library of the DOST system.

The transferred acquisitions include new and up-to-date titles in computer science, information technology, veterinary medicine, statistics, mathematics, chemistry, physics, and biochemistry, among others, including theses and dissertations.

Start the new year right, be on time. Science Secretary Mario G. Montejo thus urges everyone to be on time for all celebrations, events, and appointments this new year.

“Being on time should be one of the habits we develop starting 2014,” Sec. Montejo said. “And being on time means we sync all our watches and clocks with the Philippine Standard Time.”

A country with 7,107 islands and various ethnic backgrounds, the Philippines has constantly grappled with problems in time synchronization. Offices, media establishments, and people follow different times such as “office time”, “church time”, among others, that are based on various sources.

To address time conflicts, the Philippine Standard Time (PhST) was enforced through RA 10535 that was signed into law in May this year by Pres. Benigno S. Aquino III. Its implementing rules and regulations were likewise ratified in December.

“With the implementation of the PhST, all people in the country’s 7,107 islands should now follow one common time,” Montejo said. All media offices, especially those in the broadcast industry, are obliged to issue only the PhST or else they face huge penalties. People commonly use TV or radio time-checks to set their time pieces.

Welcome 2014 to the rhythm of one common beat.

The country’s network giants are set to synchronize their timepieces with the official Philippine Standard Time (PhST) in greeting the New Year after consultations with officials from the Department of Science and Technology led by Secretary Mario G. Montejo.

President Benigno Aquino III signed into law Republic Act 10535 or the Philippine Standard Time Act of 2013 requiring all national and local government offices as well as broadcasting organizations to display PhST as provided by the DOST’s Philippine Atmosperic, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration or PAGASA, the country’s official timekeeper.

The new law, with its recently-published Implementing Rules and Regulations (IRR), also provides for the observance of the National Time Consciousness Week, set to make its debut on New Year’s Day, January 1, 2014, with the theme “Juan Time: Pinoy Ako, On-Time Ako!”

“We urge Filipinos to synchronize their watches with PhST in welcoming New Year’s Day,” said DOST Secretary Mario G. Montejo.
