I agree to majority of the viewers that Rizal s subject may be boring especially if the teacher cannot teach the subject with passion. When I was a student, I passed the subject just to complete the requirements. But later on at the age of forty, I enjoyed reading El Filibusterismo and Noli Me Tangere. Maybe now that I am mature, I can easily understand his perspective for the love of Filipino people. I can easily imagine how he described the importance of Ilog Pasig and the beautiful houses along the river. Rizal described that we have a rich tradition, culture, industries, and commerce. Before the Spanish came to Philippines, we have our own commerce and industries and the Spanish changed this to slavery. They taught us bad practices like false religious practices, gambling, confession,
The vernal - or spring - equinox marks the start of spring in the northern hemisphere. This year - 2012 - the spring equinox was on March 20. Why does the equinox happen? The equinoxes - and our seasons - are caused by the Earth orbiting the Sun and the Earth's tilt. The Earth is tilted 23. 5 degrees on its vertical axis. During the northern hemisphere's spring and summer, the northern hemisphere is tilted towards the Sun. ...
Hi there! A Squirrel barking can be an alam call, but it can also be a territorial proclaimation, it can be a call to the Ladies looking for love -I am over here, and available;. Even though spring SEEMS a world away just now, they have 2 sets of babies. The first in early spring. Now with so much of the canopy devastated due to the catastrophic natural events of the past 2-3 years, a good tree-especially one that produces a good mast crop, ( or one near by) is worth staking out early. It s not unusual for some animals to start staking out such territories as far ahead as 4 to 6 months ahead of time!! A little family planning! I looked up Robert Lishak, and he's a biologist with a special interest in the accoustic communication of animals. Makes me wonder what an animal behaviorist would
If you ever connected to the Internet before the 2000s, you probably remember that it made a peculiar sound. But despite becoming so familiar, it remained a mystery for most of us. What do these sounds mean? (The audio was recorded by on his iMac G3. ) As many already know, what you're hearing is often called a handshake, the start of a telephone conversation between two modems. The modems are trying to find a common language and determine the weaknesses of the telephone channel originally meant for human speech. Below is a spectrogram of the handshake audio. I've labeled some signals according to which party transmitted them, and also put a concise explanation below. (High-res poster prints from Hello, is this a modem? The first thing we hear in this example is a dial tone, the same
Some of you probably already know that leading a sedentary lifestyle where your fingers and eyes do the most of your work is not exactly the best thing for your health. But working on the Internet not only causes eye strain or bad posture, it also that is not as apparent. This telling infographic by listed some other health hazards in the form of depression, cyberbullying, sleep deprivation, relationship stress and brain damage! ...
Readers on the West Coast may already be aware of this, but Stanford University has one of the oddest mascot s in collegiate sports: a tree. Called appropriately the Stanford Tree, it is the official mascot of the band and the unofficial mascot of the university. Stanford s team name is The Cardinal, as in the color (not the bird). The university has never settled on an official mascot. Trees are an important icon in Palo Alto, CA, where Stanford is located. A coast redwood ( Sequoia sempervirens ) appears on the municipal seal of the city, and there is also one on the official seal of Stanford University. Perhaps this is the source of inspiration. Apparently students and administrators have been disagreeing about what the mascot for the school should be ever since 1972, when their team
Remember that there are two types of plankton. On any day there will be the movement of phytoplankton followed closely behind by the zooplankton. Diatoms have diurnal rhythms in the water column. As soon as the sun is up they commence photosynthesis. The process generates oxygen and so the diatom becomes buoyant and begins to rise in the water. This causes it to move closer to the surface and gain more light for maximum photosynthesis. Of course, when the sun sets food production halts, no oxygen is formed and is used up. Buoyancy is lost and it starts to sink. If it sinks below the lit zone before photosynthesis starts the next day it will continue to sink and dies on the bottom. The herbivorous animals in the plankton will follow the food, so if the diatoms move close to the surface
The confusion and mild hurt you feel when no one says вbless youв when you sneeze makes you realise that this response has become second nature. Itвs just polite, isnвt it? Or is it? Come to think of it, does anyone actually know why we bless a personвs sneeze? Did you know? Disney once planned a prequel to Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs In all honesty: No. Nobody has been able to determine exactly why we bless a sneeze, or where the blessing first originated from. But, there are lots of theories. One common belief is thatВ вGod bless youв was a phrase uttered by Pope Gregory the Great during a bubonic plague epidemic that took place in the sixth century. As sneezing was one of the symptoms of the plague, it was a way to wish good health on someone. Another theory is that it в stick
I broke up with my ex boyfriend 3 weeks ago. He told me it was going to be hard when I leave to college and he was done with all the fighting about little things it got too intense we need to just breathe.
