PASIG CITY — In line with the celebration of the sixth year of the Korea-Philippines Teacher Exchange Program (KPTEP) and the 50th Anniversary of the Association of Southeast Asian Nation (ASEAN), the Department of Education (DepEd) conducted the Forum on Teacher Exchange Towards Global Citizenship Education last August 25 at the Bulwagan ng Karunungan, DepEd Central Office (CO) in Pasig City.
Headed by its External Partnerships Service (EPS), DepEd gathered all KPTEP Filipino exchange teachers from 2012 to 2017 to highlight the learnings and impact of the program by showcasing the projects that they have developed.

SAN FRANCISCO — A nine-day experimental diet that cuts out a type of sugar in soft drinks, fruit juices and most processed foods significantly reversed the buildup of liver fat in children and adolescents.
Contacted over the phone, Susan Noworolski, associate professor of radiology and biomedical imaging at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), said while the results are good for the kids studied, she did hope they could apply to a larger population.
