Ethics Formation for Sustainable Food
by UNO- Recoletos - Wednesday, 3 April 2019, 7:35 AM
 

This workshop on ethics formation for Visioning Sustainable Food was conducted last February 16-17,2018 at  Engineering AVR Building, UNO-Recoletos. The resource speaker was Dr. Oscar Bulaong, Ethics Director of Ateneo De Manila University and professor of  Graduate School of Business (AGSB) This seminar was designed for the educator, specifically for teachers who are guiding students to have an impact on the future of our country. It did not only introduce the fundamental ethical theories in traditional moral thought, but it also demonstrated their application in real-world participant-developed cases. To integrate this workshop, some intervention strategies were taken up, to clarify what ethical leadership entails, in both classrooms as well as organizational contexts. Thus, the pattern was developed throughout the workshop: theory, application, and intervention in ethics, insofar as it is relevant for forming students who envision sustainable food for future generations.

The main goal in animal breeding is to make the best use of available records to select and develop individuals or breeds of animals which possess the correct genetic makeup for a particular form and function.- Dr. Orville L. Bondoc, Subject Matter Expert (SME) on animal breeding and genetic improvement.

“when problems occur in the hemic system, they could be due to problems origination in several different systems, namely, the cardiovascular system, the blood, the lymphatic system, or the immune system.  When diseases occur, you see a problem that may have several causes and solutions.  You cannot always tell what disease is present.   Thinking in terms of a problem list of different possible diagnoses will help organize your approach.  This section describes problems that one may encounter in dealing with diseases of the avian hemic system.  ” – excerpt from Poultry Health System courseware developed by Dr. Benjamin Reuel Marte, a veterinary pathology professor.

“The major role of a plant pathologist is to provide an accurate information about an unknown disease that he personally observes in the field, or samples (plant or soil) given by the farmers. In so doing, he is expected to possibly give suggestions on the protection of crop production problems. The diagnosis is based on  the overall status of the field and the corresponding profit and or loss on condition of the producer (farmer). Diagnosis of plant diseases must be done in two ways: the field and plant diagnosis.” – notes extracted from the professors of Dept. of Crop Protection, College of Agriculture, Central Luzon State University, Science City of Munoz, Nueva Ecija, Philippines.
