Poverty in the Philippines

...POVERTY IN PHILIPPINES AMONG THE COLLEGE STUDENT Hannah Joyrose R. Abgona AAIM-1styr-Section1 ENGL.2 I. Introduction a. Outline I. Title “POVERTY IN PHILIPPINES AMONG THE COLLEGE STUDENT II. a.cause of poverty in the Philippines Poverty in the Philippines: Causes, Constraints, and Opportunities comprehensively analyzes the causes of poverty and recommends ways to accelerate poverty reduction and achieve more inclusive growth. The report provides an overview of current government responses, strategies, and achievements in the fight against poverty and identifies and prioritizes future needs and interventions. The analysis is based on current literature and the latest available data, including the 2006 Family Income and Expenditure Survey. Other cause The incomplete land reform aiming at overthrowing the traditionally unequal agrarian society coupled with lack of support for farmers has been a long-lasting flaw in the governments’ development policies that can still massively reduce poverty in the Philippines. Thus, the role of the state remains central to redistribute more equally the wealth created in the country, in order to avoid leaving the poor behind. Supporting the extremely poor must be seen as a long-term investment and counterbalanced with future gains. However, mistrust in the government combined with corruption and/or incompetence makes the overall task much harder, even though it has led to the rise of militant movements that speak in favor of farmers to build...

Philippine Literature

...GENERAL TYPES OF LITERATURE Literature can generally be divided into two types: prose and poetry. Prose consists of those written within the common flow of conversation in sentences and paragraphs, while poetry refers to those expressions in verse, with measure and rhyme, line and stanza and has a more melodious tone. I. Prose There are many types of prose. These include novels, biographies, short stories, contemporary dramas, legends, fables, essays, anecdotes, news and speeches. 1. Novel. This is a long narrative divided into chapters. The events are taken from true-to-life stories and spans a long period of time. There are many characters involved. 2. Short Story. This is a narrative involving one or more characters, one plot, and one single impression. 3. Plays. This is presented in a stage. It is divided into acts and each act has many scenes. 4. Legends. These are fictitious narratives, usually about origins. 5. Fables. These are fictitious and they deal with animals and inanimate things who speak and act like people and their purpose is to enlighten the minds of children to events that can mold their ways and attitudes. 6. Anecdotes. These are merely products of the writer’s imagination and the main aim is to bring out lessons to the reader. 7. Essay. This expresses the viewpoint or opinion of the writer about a particular problem or event. 8. Biography. This deals with the life of a person which may be about himself, his......

...The Philippines (i/ˈfɪlɨpiːnz/; fi-lə-peenz; Filipino: Pilipinas [ˌpɪlɪˈpinɐs]), officially known as the Republic of the Philippines (Filipino: Repúblika ng Pilipinas), is a sovereign island country in Southeast Asia situated in the western Pacific Ocean. It consists of 7,107 islands that are categorized broadly under three main geographical divisions: Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao. Its capital city is Manila while its most populous city is Quezon City; both are part of Metro Manila. To the north of the Philippines across the Luzon Strait lies Taiwan; Vietnamsits west across the South China Sea; southwest is the island of Borneoacross the Sulu Sea, and to the south the Celebes Sea separates it from other islands of Indonesia; while to the east it is bounded by the Philippine Sea and the island-nation of Palau. Its location on the Pacific Ring of Fire and close to the equator makes the Philippines prone to earthquakes and typhoons, but also endows it with abundant natural resources and some of the world's greatest biodiversity. At approximately 300,000 square kilometers (115,831 sq mi), the Philippines is the 64th-largest country in the world. With a population of at least 99 million people, the Philippines is the seventh-most populated country in Asia and the 12th most populated country in the world.

Philippine History

...innocence, several ordeals were carried out by the suspects. Whoever refused, or whoever is in the worst shape after the performing the tasks shall be deemed guilty. 1.6 EDUCATION, SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY Even before the colonizers came, early Filipinos already had their own system of writing. Baybayin is an ancient pre-colonial Philippine writing system. It is a member of the Brahmic family of India and is recorded as being in use in the 16th century. They wrote on barks of trees, leaves, and bamboo tubes using their knives and daggers as pens and colored saps as ink. Early chroniclers, who came during the first Spanish expeditions to the islands, noted the proficiency of some of the natives, especially the chieftain and local kings, in Sanskrit, Old Javanese, Old Malay, and several other languages. They utilized irrigation ditches to increase productivity in the field of agriculture. The prime example of this is the world-famous Banaue Rice Terraces. 2. ISLAMIC In the 14th century, Arab traders from Malay and Borneo introduced Islam into the southern islands and extended their influence as far north as Luzon. Islam was brought to the Philippines by traders and proselytizers from the Indonesian islands. By the 16th century, Islam was recognized in the Sulu archipelago and spread from there to Mindanao. It had reached the Manila area by 1565. 3.4 RELIGION Islam is a monotheistic religion articulated by the Qur'an, a book considered by its adherents to be......

...Computerized Grading System Grachel Ching John Hawk Roque Introduction People nowadays are living in an information age dependent upon digital information. Digital information is electronic information,the result of computer processing. Every type of job relies upon getting information, using it, managing it, and relaying information to others. Computers enable the efficient processing and storage of information. Background of the Study HOKACHING UNIVERSITY started at the year 2009 and later on grew on different branches on the Philippines. It has now almost half a million students both on High school Department and College Department. "Education is the needs of each and every person to achieve their goals and aspirations in life." Overview of the System Grading System is a very important aspect of a school’s operations and goals. The students are graded to measure their performance and knowledge in every grading period. Professors spend massive time to accurately compute the grades of the students using their calculators, whether an ordinary of scientific type. In early times, teachers manually solve grades using paper and pen. HOKACHING UNIVERSITY uses the manual way of computing grades and adding information or records of both students and professors. The process entails a lot of effort and by computing and storing of data manually the process is prone to error especially for the professors who handle two or more classes. By using the manual way of computing and......

... finances services and social security (Philippine Statistics Authority, 2015). Industry sectors contributes 31.2% of the total GPD (Central Intelligence Agency, 2014), which contains manufacturing, construction, mining and production, and power production (Advameg, Inc, 2015). The leftover of 11.3% of the total GDP came from Agriculture (Central Intelligence Agency, 2014). Many years ago, Agriculture was once the main contributor to Philippines’s GDP. However in the last ten years there is an increase in other industries like production for apparels, ship building, electronics and semiconductors.  Primary exports of Philippines are mainly conductors and electronic merchandise, transportation tools, garments, copper merchandise, crude oil merchandise, coconut oil, and fruits. Having major importers like China (23%), Japan (13%), United States (12%), Hong Kong (9.8%), and Singapore (5.4%), Philippines can potentially benefit from them by having almost the same GDP growth if these countries that Philippines exports significantly to are holding strong GDP growth as well (Alexander Simoes, 2015). Over the years, the rise in number of Filipinos working overseas have significantly boasted their country GDP growth (BANYAN, 2010). The Philippines was recently being seen as a newly industrialised country and rank at number 40 in terms of the largest economy within the world and is among one of the rising markets within the world (PHILIPPINES CENTER FOR BPO, 2014).

...Philippines Ask any Filipino how many islands there are in the Philippines and you will invariably receive the answer in the form of another question, “High tide or low tide? The most common figure given is 7,107 during low tide and 7,100 during high tide, but nobody knows where these numbers come from. The official figure from the Department of Tourism is 7,107 islands. Known as the “Pearl of the Orient Sea” and the “Green Necklace of the Pacific” for the natural beauty of its string of islands sprawled like a necklace of gems against the backdrop of the vast blue Pacific Ocean, the Philippines was named Islas Filipinas (Philippine Islands) by Ruy Lopez de Villalobos when he claimed the group of islands for Spain in 1543. The name is in honor of Prince Phillip, who would later become Prince Philip II of Spain. The Republic of the Philippines (Fig.1) is an archipelago of more than 7,000 islands located southeast of mainland Asia and positioned along the Ring of Fire on the southwestern edge of the Pacific Ocean. Different bodies of water surround the country - South China Sea to the west, Sulu Sea to the Southwest, Celebes Sea to the south, and the Philippine Sea and Pacific Ocean to the east. The country is separated from Taiwan on the north by the Luzon Strait and from Malaysia on the southwest, by the Balabac Strait., The country’s overall land area is slightly larger than the size of Arizona.

Summary Philippine Literature

...Summary of Philippine Literature in English: Tradition and Change Due to the influence of the Americans after the Spanish-American War in 1898, Filipino writers started using English as the medium in writing literature. Main reasons for this were that English was not only used in all the schools in our country but it was also by people of high stature and by foreigners that come in and out of our country. Filipinos also became proficient with several languages as an advantage of being colonized by several countries for almost four centuries. This opened them up to the works and advancements of the different countries of the world. But not everyone was pleased with this. Some scholars claim that the Filipinos are becoming too westernized thus making them neglect their Asian values. English not only changed our medium of communication but also our way of life. And as a countermeasure for this, the government demanded the writers before to establish their own identities as Filipinos and to not be bound by the principles of Romanticism. Unfortunately writers still continued developing their skills in English thus resulting to them being truly westernized. Marcos’ political regime, EDSA revolution and the “Cory Miracle” were events that happened years after that not only influenced the Filipino’s history, but also their literature. Today, writers realized that enhancing their skill can aid them in the field of politics. The......

Philippines

...Introduction to the Philippines Separated from its Southeast Asian neighbours by the West Philippine Sea, the Philippines has always been a little different. As the only Asian nation colonized by the Spanish, this lush archipelago of dazzling beaches, year-round sun and warm, turquoise waters remains predominantly Roman Catholic, and culturally – a blend of Islamic, Malay, Spanish and American influences – it ofen feels light years away from the mainland, with a string of elegant colonial towns that have more in common with Latin America than the rest of Asia. It’s an enticing mix: all over the archipelago you’ll discover tantalizing food, friendly people and exurberant festivals. And the variety is astonishing: you can surf, islang-hop or dive pristine coral reefs in the morning and in the same day visit mysitical tribal villages, ancient rice terraces and jungle-smothered peaks. Indeed, the Philippines is often underrated and misunderstood by travelers and its Asian neighbours, casually, dismissed as a supplier of maids, tribute bands, mail-order brides and corrupt politicians, epitomized by the gaudy excesses of Imelda Marcos. Don’t be a put off: while poverty and corruption remain serious problems, the Philippines is far more complex –and culturally rich –than the stereotypes suggest. The Filipino people are variously descended from early Malay settlers, Muslim Sufis from the Middle East, Spanish conquistadors and friars, and later Chinese traders. It’s an old cliché, but...

Term Paper Philippine Literature

...Section F2: Classes of Amplifiers As mentioned in the introduction, an important role of the final stage of an amplification system is to ensure a low output resistance so that the output signal may be delivered to a low resistance load without loss of gain. Many times, the gain stages provide the output stage with signals that are large enough that the small-signal transistor model no longer applies (or must be used with caution). However, it is still of paramount importance that linearity be preserved – that is, signal distortion must be kept to an absolute minimum. Another output stage requirement is that it delivers the required power to the load efficiently. This means that the power dissipated in output stage transistors must be kept to an absolute minimum, both to ensure maximum power delivered to the load and, probably more importantly, to ensure that the transistor temperature remain below specified levels. Although MOS power transistors (to be discussed later this semester) offer significant advantages over BJTs such as the reduction or elimination of certain breakdown mechanisms found in BJTs, the reduction of the large drive currents required for BJT power amplifiers and a generally higher speed of operation, we will not address the MOSFET implementation this semester due to increased the device complexity required for high power applications. Amplification stages are classified according to the characteristics of the collector (output) current waveform......
