Phil. Daily Inquirer’s Youngblood

Life can be so unfair at times. There are life lessons we ought to learn from experience. But isn’t it better to ‘know’ them ahead of time & learn instead of reaally experience them? by that I think we can save time & we gain wisdom about the world without the incovenience of consequences it might have brought.
I’m talking about learning life lessons from other’s experiences. This we can attain from our friends & from a good book which is the PDI’s 3 Youngblood books. It taught me personally about some life lessons & spared me the damage it might have brought.

Youngbllod 3.0 (Book 3)

These books are compilations of the editorial essays written by the young of the 90’s generation. It depicts how the youth of that generation lived their lives & tried to fit in the adults’ world. Although it was writen more than 10 years ago we the present generation can still relate to it like the cases of unwanted pregnancies, abortion, & climbing up the corporate ladder for career men & women. (to contradict the previous statement) There are times also that I couldn’t really relate to some of the articles because the writer’s english proficiency & vocabulary are beyond my reach. they are just too good to to be read by mediocre reader like me.

I also noticed another one: most of the writers are hailed from really good universities like UST, La Salle, UP, San Beda. So the book is an embodiment of the higher class’ sentiments. Not the lower classes like me. The medium of writing which is English hinders the rest of the youth of today to relate since they don’t bother to read anuthing written in English. It’s hard to encourage my classmates & friends to read it. It hardly interests them.

former MMDA chair Bayani Fernando now running for vice presidency
Manila, MMDA, Bayani Fernando, Oscar Inocentes, Pink & apple green streets, Manila 2010
According to the news I’ve read from Manila Bulletin Online, the new MMDA Chairman Sec. Oscar Inocentes will alter the famous MMDA trademark color. The pink street urinals, steel fences & highway waiting sheds will remain but the new projects will be altered to apple green due to the Chair’s liking.

New Chair Sec. Oscar Inocentes

So sooner or later we’ll be seeing the combined colors permeate the streets..& main highways.

What an annoying scene it will be.Why change the trademark color of the agency? Is it for pride it brings to the former executor?? Tao nga naman oo.. so I think the new chairman will be making his own trademark color. Then after his tenure I wonder what will be the next…

Let’s say after few years of different chairmen taking office in the agency, then Manila is doomed for having colorful signs & street parafernalias.
Below is the original articel from the MB site.
New color disappoints Fernando
By ANNA LIZA T. VILLAS
January 6, 2010, 7:50pm
Former Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA)
Chairman Bayani Fernando and road users have expressed disappointment over the
plan of the new agency chair, with only less than five months in office, to
change his signature color from pink to apple green.

“Ako’y
nang-hihinayang dahil sa ang kulay pink ay nagkaroon na ng kahulugan sa atin.
Nagkaroon na ng karakter ang Metro Manila at nakilala tayo dahil sa buong mundo
tayo lang ang may kulay na ganito,” Fernando said.

MMDA Chairman Oscar
Inocentes said that the color of the agency’s new projects will be apple green
and would not carry color pink, a color identified with Fernando.

Inocentes clarified that existing pink-colored road structures will
remain unless they will be changed or the color tarnished due to high cost.

“Yung mga bagong projects lang, ito lang ang papalitan, yung mga
existing, hindi natin babaguhin ang kulay kasi very high cost kung gagawin yon,”
he explained.

Inocentes said that that color green support’s national
government’s campaign against anti-pollution and climate change, as part of the
“Metro Green” project.

During the seven-year stint of Fernando, he
painted the signs, steel fences, urinals on thoroughfares with pink under the
Metro Gwapo project.

Writing in Techie World

Hmmm…At first glance…what would the picture mean to you?? What does it say?
Has it ever occured to you that what this picture depicts is inevitable in our modern techie world. Even for some writers.
I’ve been a contributor to my school publication/newspaper (although I’m not that really good). Ive experienced even for a short while how other writers feel. How their freedom of expression are suppressed. How they have smoothly adapted to the new world that computers are creating. We have gardually been relying with word doc, word pad, computer, keyboard. We have been missing the real menaing of writing. Yes! I am included there. I’ve been too lazy to inscribe words & express myself through the use of a pen. I’d rather prefer seeing the blinking cursor wink at me when everything is blank. I have forgotten that WRITING as in holding a pen & scratching it against a surface is still the best way of ‘writing”. Seeing your penmanship even if it’s not legible sometimes expresses who you really are when you write. The feelings incorporated with it & the sentiments accompanying it. I remember writing this short letter-styled story in computer for our school’s literary folio. While I was doing it I was like crying……the emotion flows within me like a river. And I’ve even included “that” there. But I’ve thought to put some font style on it. Like the faded & blurred letters from tears or something wet to give more emphasis to the emotion. Yeah. I’ve tried to look for that style in the computer but there was none.
Computers do make our life convenient & help us in many ways but it can never replace the hands that we use. The hands that do the “dirty” work.
Write (verb) – to form (as words) by inscribing the characters or symbols of on a surface

Korea’s Cellphone Wastes

As many as 750,000 cellphones weighing 60 tons are piled at a electronics waste terminal of the Association of Electronics Environment in Yongin, south of Seoul, Tuesday. The Gyeonggi Province collected 25kgs of gold worth 1 billion won from the waste cellphones during a two-month campaign to collect waste cellphones for both the environment and needy households. The money will be used for the needy people.

In Korea, as shown above has a lot of cellphone surplus. They are just being thrown out by them but here in the Philippines it is considered a treasure. The folks in Gyeonggi Province donated & collected them for a good cause. They’ve said to have collected 25 kg. gold from them! My god! That’s quite a lot right???
