The Spinal Tap
October 17th, 2008 posted by JB under Alumni Stories, Bits & Pieces. [ Comments: none ]

Before I forget, my new personal blog. It’s “personal” in the “New Personal” way!

I don’t know what I’m talking about. But hit it.

The sign of the times
October 9th, 2008 posted by faisal under Bits & Pieces. [ Comments: none ]

Its good that I found this website because it feels great to be updated with what is going on in my Alma Mater.

What I love here in the Philippines  is the relative peace. In a few weeks from now, I am going back to my country. We are being threatened with invasion by the US in false pretense of terrorism but in reality, they just want our oil as their own resources are now depleted.

Peace to everyone!

Allah Al Akbar!

“”But long before the end, he had a good time. A very good time”

Why do we wonder where our mind goes when the body is dead? Shouldn’t it be obvious that the mind is dead, too?

And yet people in every culture believe in an afterlife of some kind or, at the very least, are unsure about what happens to the mind at death. My psychological research has led me to believe that these irrational beliefs, rather than resulting from religion or serving to protect us from the terror of inexistence, are an inevitable by-product of self-consciousness. Because we have never experienced a lack of consciousness, we cannot imagine what it will feel like to be dead. In fact, it won’t feel like anything—and therein lies the problem.

The common view of death as a great mystery usually is brushed aside as an emotionally fueled desire to believe that death isn’t the end of the road. And indeed, a prominent school of research in social psychology called terror management theory contends that afterlife beliefs, as well as less obvious beliefs, behaviors and attitudes, exist to assuage what would otherwise be crippling anxiety about the ego’s inexistence.

According to proponents, you possess a secret arsenal of psychological defenses designed to keep your death anxiety at bay. My writing this article, for example, would be interpreted as an exercise in “symbolic immortality”; terror management theorists would likely tell you that I wrote it for posterity, to enable a concrete set of my ephemeral ideas to outlive me, the biological organism.

From “Never say die“, Scientific American

Nice reading: You can say “never say die” all you want, but you’re still dead.

Adamsonian Site????
August 20th, 2008 posted by rubybardelosa under Bits & Pieces. [ Comments: 1 ]

i never knew that we have a site like this… Not until i searched Sir Julius Estampador’s name sa Google! Sigh…

Before, i was looking for an adamson site where i could post blogs and say whatever i want to say. I want to write about my complaints! (hehe! kaya ngayon, yari kaung lahat! joke lang.)

There are lots of good things naman that happened to me in AdU eh… Like meeting trustworthy friends, having fun inside the classroom, learning important things from my professors, etc…

I know Adamson University is not as perfect as we think it is but one thing i can say.,,

Adamson University made me a better person..

Ganito kami noon…
April 1st, 2008 posted by Deity under Alumni Stories, Bits & Pieces. [ Comments: 2 ]

Thought I’d share this picture which was taken during the Bb. Liberal Arts 1991 beauty pageant. Iris Alfelor, one of the most sought after MASP speech instructor during that era, won the much coveted title.

The faces you see in the picture belongs to (from left to right): Alorna, the English Department’s SA from 1989-1992 (?); Kathy, daughter of Prof. Lucy Diano (former chairperson of the English Department); Weng Inocencio-Kim, now the proud owner of Kerrimo, that snack stand you see in SV; Yours truly, aka The Deity (I looked so innocent noh?); Iris, the alluring Cebuana who used to capture freshmen’s heart with her exotic beauty and husky voice; Christian, the English Department’s Ozanam Playhouse official make-up artist; Malen, the demure MASP who got the young engineering dudes tailing her all the time; Cynia, also an outstanding MASP, presently connected in one of America’s top airlines; Carlo, nowadays a businessman making a name in Cebu; and Arthur, the self-proclaimed MASP gigolo during our batch. The last I heard about Art is that he’s teaching in Lyceum.

With the exception of Rowena, Cynia and Carlo, who remained dear friends to this date, I have no idea where some of the former MASP’s are these days, especially those that I worked and played with from 1988-1990. All I know now is that they have a special place in my memory.

I still can’t believe it’s been that long ago…

Remembering ‘Inkblot’
November 10th, 2007 posted by JB under Bits & Pieces. [ Comments: 3 ]

the Inkblot

Sometime in 2000, I started a little website called “Inkblot.” Blogging wasn’t yet the “in” thing back then, so I had to do everything (design, HTML coding) by hand. It was an arduous process, that’s why I “updated” it only once every quarter. And the content was no biggie: I read some of the stuff I did then, I cringe. It all seems so juvenile from where I currently stand.
Anyway, Freeservers “killed” the site after I unwittingly hotlinked some images from my blog sometime in November 2004. But for anyone who’s curious, the Inkblot’s old issues and “evolution” can still be seen in the Wayback Machine.

One of the worst exhibitions of insanity
October 10th, 2007 posted by tikgirl under Bits & Pieces. [ Comments: 8 ]

YouTube Preview Image

This happened just last year in Poso, Indonesia. The real root of the massacre is not yet clear. It could be because of religious differences or of politically related problem(s). Whatever the reason is, this shows how people can be so insane for the sake of their personal interests.

But let us not be too judgmental. Maybe they have their own motives behind this. But killing other people? It all varies on the different convictions of different people.. a pogrom of Christians, is this their answer?

I know that this is not related to Adamson University or even to our own lives, but seeing this video made me think, while we are enjoying our life here, there are people out there suffering from real physical harm.

Your Woman
September 28th, 2007 posted by bondgirl4ever under Bits & Pieces, Opinion, Random Thoughts, Travels. [ Comments: 11 ]

These are some excerpts from Jose Rizal’s letter to his sister Trining during the former’s stay in Heidelberg:

“The German woman is serious, studious, and diligent, and as their clothes do not have plenty of color, and generally they have only three or four, they do not pay much attention to their clothes nor to jewels.´´

“They go everywhere walking so nimbly or faster than men, carrying their books, their baskets, without minding anyone and only their own business. ´´

“…because German women are active and somewhat masculine. They are not afraid of men. They are more concerned with the substance than with appearances. ´´

Let me say that I truly admire a woman who is capable of independence. I might write again my observations in this European country I am in, but let us not tackle about that.. I want to write about women. Women who are called Bitches when they express themselves, when they compete with men, and when they beat men.

I do not think that it is about subduing men or competing with men. I think that it is about self sustenance and liberation to be able to learn, to practice one’s craft, to simply map her own purpose. This might sound like from the Women’s Lib, a reality which we thought already happening. If that is the case, then stop calling me a Bitch.

I might point out the women in my Heimat (fatherland). And the women here where I am staying. It is still customary that a Filipina stays at home, attends to the kids and waits for her husband’s salary, and in between, she will watch noontime shows and telenovelas as her endowed entertainment. Thanks to the so called Women’s Rights, women attend schools and even universities, even being able to pursue Engineering, Law or Medicine. Yet, in between, she will succumb to a man, put on expensive make up and clothes, watch t.v., wait for the man, and daydream. Because, in such education, women are isolated to learn only the theories and praxis of the discipline they choose. Outside the degree and the career, they still need to have those multiple facial creams and they need to stay at home, because she is a wife and a worker (careerwoman). She will still have that fragile emotions and she will still be conscious at what others may say, she will still be conforming and will not have her own disposition over matters.

Where I am staying right now, to which, I might also suggest (but not necessarily impose) to the women in my Heimat, women are considered strong. Rizal has the accurate definition of them which is valid up to now. Women don’t waste time, they, in fact make the most of their time. Women read, a common household bookshelf here is filled with books, no matter if she is the Mechanical Engineer of a metal company or the cashier of a bakery, she collects books of her own interest be it about geography or Ernest Hemingway or marine life. Women indulge themselves into sports, some women even drive to cliffs to cycle, or even climb mountains. During their free time, they study new sports, at 40, they attend arnis lessons or rowing lessons. Women go to museums, opera and cultural festivals, mostly affordable and not expensive during festivals as they are being upholded by the government as well. Women express themselves, they have their opinions and not afraid to be heard out. Women think, they use logic and techniques for convenience, even from cooking, to driving, to mostly anything. They don’ linger long moments in front of the mirror because they want to be punctual. They don’t say, “Pwede na ito´´, they execute things to the best way they can and they expect efficiency also.

Being a woman is not about being a bitch to men, but being a bitch because a woman satisfies herself. And that satisfaction comes from the things we try to discover as humans here on earth who appreciate beauty and art, who use rationality bestowed upon us, who develop ideas and skills for the betterment of our own selves and who have goals to be fulfilled.
