By the beginning of December 1941, the United States had engaged in warlike activity – such as the Neutrality Act of 1939 and the Lend-Lease Act – but had yet to commit itself. A surprise attack...

    REACTION PAPER ("AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH") We have experienced a lot of changes lately: huge floods due to stronger typhoons, and noticeable changes in our weather from too much heat during daytime and sudden rain in the afternoon.

  • Reaction Paper: Jose Rizal Movie

    While watching the movie, I have observed similarities and differences of some scenes from today’s youth. Let’s start discussing about the similarities. First thing I have observed is the harsh treatment given by the colonials to our fellowmen especially to women and children. They, if not physically, were verbally abused by the Spaniards. I compared it to what’s happening in our society today and quite noticed a similarity. It is similar in a way that women and children, even the men too, are still...
