NATIONAL HEROES DAY
Eidul Fitr is an important celebration for Filipino Muslims, marking the end of the month-long fast during Ramadan and marks the beginning of the month Shawwal. Also known as “Eid-al-Fitr”, “Wakas ng Ramadan” and “Pagtatapos ng Pag-aayuno”, it is a national public holiday for all in the Philippines. Originated by the Islamic Prophet Muhammad, Eidul Fitr is a cause for celebration and thanks giving to Allah. Eidul Fitr has been proclaimed a national holiday in the Philippines since 2002, and was the first predominantly Christian country to do so. This proclamation was made to foster peace and goodwill between major religions in the Philippines. Eidul Fitr is celebrated using the Islamic calendar “Hijra” and is also dependant on the lunar calendar. The combination of these means that the date to celebrate Eidul Fitr constantly changes. It is the duty of the National Commission on Muslim Filipinos (NCMF) to inform the Office of the President on which date in the Gregorian calendar it should fall. For Muslim Filipinos, Eidul Fitr marks the end of fasting during Ramadan. On this day, it is forbidden to fast as it is a day of celebration. Muslim Filipinos practice ritual washing before heading to a community gathering, usually in a mosque, and offer special prayers to Allah. On this day, they give the obligatory charity in the form of food known as “zakat al-fitr” and listen to special sermons on the occasion. After attending this gathering, many families choose to celebrate with a feast with their extended family and friends. As it is a national public holiday for all, non-Muslim Filipinos may choose to spend the day with their family and friends. Shopping centres and public transportation continue to run as usual, with the exception of Muslim businesses closing or having limited trading hours on that day. National Heroes Day in the Philippines is a national public holiday to honour and remember the country’s National heroes. These heroes are the men and women in Philippine history whose acts of courage enabled the Philippines to grow as a nation. Whilst National Heroes Day celebrates both known and unknown heroes, a National Heroes Committee was set up in 1995 to recommend those who should be counted as ‘National Heroes’. Following certain criteria, they found a select group of people who, they believed, should be honoured for their deeds. These were: * Jose Rizal
* Andres Bonifacio
* Emilio Aguinaldo
* Apolinario Mabini
* Marcelo H. del Pilar
* Sultan Dipatuan Kudarat
* Juan Luna
* Melchora Aquino
* Gabriela Silang
Jose Rizal and Andres Bonifacio were two of the main proponents against Spanish rule. As a result, both were given their own special days commemorating their lives and deeds. When is National Heroes Day?
National Heroes Day in the Philippines is held every last Monday of August. This date was chosen as it marked the beginning of the Cry of Pugad Lawin in 1896, the start of the Philippine revolution against the Spanish colonisers. Filipinos celebrate National Heroes Day by attending local commemorations (e.g. parades, wreath laying at shrines, etc.). As it is a day off for most workers, people often spend the rest of the day with family and friends at parks, shopping malls and other public areas. Small firework displays may also be held during the evenings in some local areas.

Upon watching the film, although I have already a clear view that I will become a teacher in the future, it somehow encourage me to pursue and take this course very seriously not for my benefit but for others. It gives me an inspiration to study hard and be more knowledgeable for when the time comes; I can give a lot of knowledge to my students. For saying says that, “You ca not give what you do not have.”If I will be a teacher; I will be a good model teacher to the students. I will listen to them in the sense of knowing who really they are. As long as they will give me a permission to talk to them with regards to their problem- I will. I will give them all the knowledge that they need to know for their future. I will be their best friend on the other hand; if they are willing they will also be my best friends. I will not apply the rule of a teacher and students instead a teacher to a teacher and students to a students, in general I will be like them and they will be like me. I will play with them but I will stop them their bad character and alter it into a nice character. I will develop the skills and the talent of my students in any kind of field. I will make them proud of themselves. I will make a rule of respect to the classroom. May things I envisioned but first, I must envision to graduate in this...
..."This was much more than a cholera epidemic," William Watson said.
Watson, chairman of the history department at nearby Immaculata University, and his twin brother Frank have been working for nearly a decade to unravel the 178-year-old mystery.
Anti-Irish sentiment made 19th-century America a hostile place for the workers, who lived amid wilderness in a shanty near the railroad tracks. The land is now preserved open space behind suburban homes in Malvern, about 20 miles west of Philadelphia.
The Watsons and their research team have recovered seven sets of remains since digging up the first shin bone in March 2009, following years of fruitlessly scouring the area for the men's final resting place. One victim has been tentatively identified, pending DNA tests.
The brothers have long hypothesized that many of the workers succumbed to cholera, a bacterial infection spread by contaminated water or food. The disease was rampant at the time, and had a typical mortality rate of 40 percent to 60 percent.
The other immigrants, they surmise, were killed by vigilantes because of anti-Irish prejudice, tension between affluent residents and poor transient workers, or intense fear of cholera — or a combination of all three.
Now, their theory is supported by the four recovered skulls, which indicate the men probably suffered blows to the head. At least one may have been shot, said Janet Monge, an anthropologist working on the project.

III. SPECIFIC RESEARCH
Virtual Classroom System is an environment unlike to the traditional classroom. Virtual Classroom is wherever you and your computer happen to be. And your virtual class schedule is whatever you wanted to be. Virtual classroom provides a perfect environment for online training.
B. BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
The Philippine is one of many developing countries that has begun using the Internet to establish closer communications.
Some Filipinos take the advantage of technology to train and meet some clients virtually. Some teachers cannot meet the students because of conflict in time and distance. And some students, has to be absent because in personal problems like time, money, and distance. So we developed Virtual Classroom that can be beneficial to all trainers and all people that are in need of learning that are bound at their conflict schedule. In here, you can learn anywhere and anytime you want.

Fluency vs. Accuracy
“Ang hindi marunong magmahal sa sariling wika ay mas masahol pa sa hayop at sa malansang isda.”
(Dr. José Protacio Rizal)
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, and it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, and always perseveres. Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears. When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me. Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known. And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. (1 Corinthians 13:4-13, New International Version)
What is love? For many people it is the...
A thermometer is a device used to measure temperature.
A thermometer is used in health care to measure and monitor body temperature. In an office, hospital or other health care facility, it allows a caregiver to record a baseline temperature when a patient is admitted. Repeated measurements of temperature are useful to detect deviations from normal levels. Repeated measurements are also useful in monitoring the effectiveness of current medications or other treatments.
The patient's temperature is recorded to check for pyrexia or monitor the degree of hypothermia present in the body.
All health care professionals use thermometers. All health care facilities have thermometers. Most homes also have thermometers.
A thermometer can use any of several methods to register temperature. These include mercury; liquid-in-glass; electronic with digital display; infrared or tympanic; and disposable dot matrix. A thermometer can be used in a clinical or emergency setting or at home. Thermometers can record body temperatures in the mouth (oral), armpit (axillary), eardrum (tympanic membrane), or anus (rectal).
A mercury thermometer consists of a narrow glass stem approximately 5 in (12.7 cm) in length with markings along one or both sides indicating the temperature scale in degrees Fahrenheit, Centigrade or both. Liquid mercury is held in a reservoir bulb at one end and rises through a capillary tube when the glass chamber is placed in...

Astor Lodge & Suites, a 250-property hotel chain with “comfortable accommodations at convenient locations and at reasonable prices” had its fifth consecutive unprofitable fiscal year in 2005 and wanted to see profitability within the next two years. The overall objective is to have a 7% annual increase while not giving into cost cutting.
After not seeing profits, the company’s new president, Joseph James, set up a conference to figure out the different vice presidents plans for fiscal 2006. Since 2005 was projected to be the fifth consecutive unprofitable year, the goal for fiscal 2006 was to help achieve profitability within two years. However, will Astor Lodge & Suites be able to see profitability and see a 7% annual increase in EBITDA? *allocation of media spending between pleasure and business traveler, frontier strategy? Promotions?
Increasing profits will come from attracting first time guests and increase occupancy. *closing either the limited or full service hotel and focus on one or the other. (consider closing a lodge)

...known as our Pambansang Wika due to the development of language infused with contributions from all over the country. She also said that our language is continuously evolving and will forever be a work-in-progress. Criticisms such as knowing the tagalog language but not using it in the right way, context or even in our way of speaking; like for example the use of “nang” in different meanings. Our Pambansang Wika should be preserved and be used correctly without immaturity, idiocy and lack of willingness to learn.
III. Insights Gained from the article (links, connections to course, help understand/clarify)
In the case of this article, a lot has to do with both formal and informal education that we Filipinos have. In the informal education setting: to further explain is one example from the article “First held March 27 to April 2, in 1946 following President Sergio Osmea‘s orders the “Linggo ngWika” was moved to Aug. 13-19 by president Ramon Magsaysay to honour Manuel L. Quezon’s birth month, as it was Quezon’s birth month, as it was Quezon’s Commonwealth Act 184 that establshied the institute of of National Language in 1936.” Second would be “..Tagalog-based wika was not so quickly the medium of instruction...”
Then if we put this into the Formal Education as stated in the article “..Quezon went full steam ahead with his plans, dissolved the INL and replaced it with the National Language...

When you first hear the news about an offender committing numerous crimes, you assume he or she might have been abused at some point in their life or that they have had a long criminal record. Most repeat offenders come from a string of a bad life, parental abuse such as abandonment, neglect, and/ or physical abuse to name a few. At an early age they show signs of being cold hearted, fearless and possibly thrill-seeking behavior.
This wasn't the case for Charles Ng. Born in Hong Kong (Levin), son of a wealthy businessman, he was not exposed to poverty, thugs, to the contrary; he had it all. Access to everything he could have ever wanted, lots of money, choice to attend any school he could have ever wanted without having to worry about how it would be funded. Whatever he wanted he received. Instead he opted for a life crime. He started with just being a rebel, he would be transferred or expelled from different schools throughout his childhood due to his outstanding behavior (sarcasm), and they couldn't kick him out fast enough. His father couldn't handle him anymore, he sent him to England to live with his uncle. It didn't take long for Charles to continue his bad behavior. He upgraded to stealing from his classmates to retail stores. He just couldn't get enough of other people's stuff. And once again he was kicked out of school.
While back in Hong Kong, he...
