re you looking for a hero or heroes to look up to, to inspire you, and to lead our country's development in a sustainable way? If you are one of those Filipinos looking for heroes, we hope you have high-enough standards of heroism to look beyond the "moderators" and "moderated" characters that we read and hear much about these days. We have many other real heroes who have been working quietly, with integrity throughout their lives.


Consider our kababayans abroad who have been helping keep the Philippine economy afloat. Some of them are among the best in the world in their fields. They are real heroes. We have been referring to them as Overseas-Filipino Workers or OFWs. But, some of their leaders prefer that we now call them Global Pinoys. For, indeed, they are not just "workers." Many of them are leaders, planners, and technical experts. Among them are the new "OFWs," the Overseas-Filipino Women, whom we want to honor now as the month for women (March) starts.


Hear two of the new OFWs-- Anita Sese-Schon,  Overseas-Filipino Council organizer, and Dr. Glenda Besana-Ostman, earth and planetary scientist--in Kalikasan, Kaunlaran! (KK!),  DZRH-AM radio, on March  5, Wed., at the new prime time slot, 7:30 – 8:30 PM.  Join KK! Dir./Host Dr. Cora Claudio, Pres., EARTH Institute Asia, in checking which pot is about to boil in Anita's Kitchen and which one might soon erupt among Glenda's monitored volcanoes.
