POWER:  Upgrading of the power distribution system at the Loyola Heights
campus is ongoing.  The latest was yesterday, Sunday 8 February. It required
a power outage in the Katipunan and Barangka grids from 8:00 to 10:00 a.m. 


Upgrading work required power outages to allow connections in the 5000 KVA
transformer and underground distribution cables.


TRAFFIC:  There are still complaints of tricycle fare overcharging this
February, although they are fewer compared to January.  All emailed
complaints have been acted on and erring drivers suspended.  


Tricycle drivers earn more on-campus than off-campus.  Tricycles that are
suspended lose two thirds of their daily income (estimated at P500 of the
P700 daily fare earnings) when not allowed on campus.  It is a heavy penalty
tricycle drivers would not wish to incur.  


The community is encouraged to remain vigilant and report erring tricycle
drivers to eliminate overcharging.     


SECURITY:  Vandals have been active again along Katipunan Avenue.  The
waiting shed between Gate 2 and Gate 2.5 and the Gate 3.5 pedestrian
footbridge were again defaced with graffiti.

The graffiti was painted over the following day.  


Carpark Menace:  The number of vehicles whose tires were flattened while
they were inside campus carparks has increased.  These incidents are
disturbing because:  


1.	Several tires are punctured and flattened at the same time.
2.	There are indications that the tires were deliberately punctured
with a sharp instrument similar to an ice pick.

instituted other security measures.  This problem can be effectively solved
with the assistance of the community.  All are requested to be vigilant and
report to security the presence of suspicious persons and activities at the
