Cordillera - Researchers from the University of the Philippines-Baguio have discovered four indigenous plants found in the Cordillera Administrative Region to have medicinal properties that could be used as an alternative to antibiotics bought in the market. 

The researchers had confirmed these indigenous plants namely Nepenthes alata, a pitcher plant locally known as kakallong, Bauhinia pupurea or butterfly tree, Ficus septica or tibig, and Melastoma malabathricum or bakgi to be effective against a type of multi-resistant  bacteria. 

According to a study conducted by the researchers, enzymes extracted from these plants can kill the multi-resistant bacteria that cause pneumonia and bloodstream infection.

"Their bioactive compounds can be used as an alternative to the commercially available antibiotics since they can significantly control the growth of the multi-resistant P.aeruginosa," read the paper published in the Indian Journal of Traditional Knowledge. 

Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a leading pathogen among patients with lung disease that has the ability to develop resistance to antibiotics.

In a study conducted by biologist Charlotte Elmido, Kryssa Balangcod and Teodora Balangcod, they found out that enzymes extracted from the steams of tibig plants and from the leaves of butterfly tree to be the most effective in killing the bacteria. 

They also said that tibig contains enzymes known to have anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory properties, while the butterfly tree has potential bioactive compounds that can inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria.

Their study also confirmed kalkallong to have antibacterial properties while the leaves of bagki also contain enzymes that can heal wound and reduce pain.

The researchers have underscored the unexplored diversity of indigenous plants in the Cordillera and their potential in the field of pharmaceutical and medicine.

Cordillera - A 10th grader student from Abra has developed a robot called 'enviro' robot that can pick and sort out garbage from canals and waterways.
Meljon Reyes Viste, a 16-year-old student wanted to make something that is useful to the environment. Because of his interest in robotics and Lego toys, he wanted to build a robot that performs useful works. 

"I want to do something that is useful. I am worried with the state of our environment that is why I improved what had been developed in the past," Viste said via PNA news website.

Viste said he came up with the idea of building a robot that can pick up and sort out trash after they were required by their school to do a research and and propose possible solutions to problems in the province.

Viste approached that challenge just like any other good inventor. He built his robot using parts of an old electric wheelchair which he retrieved from scrap in a waste facility. 

His robot uses a conveyor that will pick up trash and a sensor that determines which type of trash whether metal or plastic. Then it  segregates the metal from plastic in  separate containers.
Viste said that he will improve the version of his enviro robot and plan to bring it on the upcoming robot competition in Australia in the third week of October. 

Last August, Viste brought home a medal after winning 3rd place in the 5th World Robot Games held in Thailand.
