Left Cagayan de Oro at 1:30 am for a long trip to Dakak via the Fantasy Land Bus. The first stop was at COTTA in Ozamis City. Cotta is also called earlier as the Triunfo, a stone fort built along the shores of Panguil Bay more than two centuries ago. The next stop was Robert Eatery and Travellers’ Inn where we took our breakfast. We arrived Dapitan City and went directly to Punto del Desembarko de Rizal, Barangay Sta. Cruz, where Rizal disembarked from the steamer “Cebu” when he was exiled in Dapitan. We also visited the relief map pf Mindanao, the Casa Real Marker and the church where Rizal used to attend while on exile.
The lunch was spent at the Dapitan City River Cruise. After the Cruise we went to visit the Rizal Shrine. We checked-in at Dakak Park and Beach Resort. We rested for a while and got the feel of the 5-star hotel.
We got ready to experience the all-rides treat at the Gloria Fanrtasy Land with buffet dinner, INCLUDING THE Horror House and 5D experience.
This is the major historical landmark of Dapitan City. It refers to the more or less sixteen (16) hectares estate of Dr. Jose P. Rizal which he purchased in Barangay Talisay and is approximately two (2) kilometers NW from the City Hall.
In August 1892, a Spaniard from Manila brought lottery tickets to Dapitan. Dr. Jose Rizal, Capt. Ricardo Carnicero, the politico military governor of Dapitan at that time and a...
1. PHONETICS AS A BRANCH OF LINGUISTICS
We begin our study of language by examining the inventory, structure and functions of the speech sounds. This branch of linguistics is called phonetics.
Phonetics (pronounced /fəˈnɛtɪks/, from the Greek: φωνή, phōnē, 'sound, voice') is a branch of linguistics that comprises the study of the sounds of human speech, or—in the case of sign languages—the equivalent aspects of sign. It is concerned with the physical properties of speech sounds or signs (phones): their physiological production, acoustic properties, auditory perception, and neurophysiological status.
Phonetics, Phonology This is the level of sounds. One must distinguish here between the set of possible human sounds, which constitutes the area of phonetics proper, and the set of system sounds used in a given human language, which constitutes the area of phonology. Phonology is concerned with classifying the sounds of language and with saying how the subset used in a particular language is utilised, for instance what distinctions in meaning can be made on the basis of what sounds.
Phonetics is an independent branch of linguistics like lexicology or grammar. These linguistic sciences study language from three different points of view. Lexicology deals with the vocabulary of language, with the origin and development of words, with their meaning and word building. Grammar defines the rules governing the modification of words and the...
...my first day at secondary. Part of the night I was feeling restless but I did not know why. I was feeling rather anxious throughout the night but I was happy to start a new life. I worked over to open the blinds for once the sun was shining bright as my new uniform. I worked over to make sure that my uniform was still hanging in wardrobe. My uniform was looking unique there was not a single crease to be seen. I had a quick glimpse at my back salute shoe they looked great spanking new shoes.
I got ready quickly because I was curious of the time I did not want to be late for my first day at school. Standing in front of the mirror admiring my new uniform I was impressed with myself looking so smart. I was a little bit confused of how I should tie a knot in my new school tie. I was panic I rushed over towards my dad and tied my tie for me. I was feeling lot me relaxed. Subsequently, I made my way to the dining table; I had cereal with cold, white, fresh milk. As I had my first bite, my hand had a strong but stable grip on the spoon because I did not want to spill it on my brand new uniform. It felt like tight roping across Grand Canyon. I felt under pressure as I saw the clock reach 7:30am so I rushed my breakfast like a cheater chasing its pray in the jungle. I grabbed my bag and went sat down in the car. There was a sign of relief hopping I will not be late for my first day of...
...Summer Reading Essay
In the research/analysis novel Day of Empire, the author, Amy Chua, discusses her thesis of how hyperpowers (empires or nations that had a command that stretched to all corners of the known world in the known world of their respective times) all rose to dominance through tolerance and fell in power through intolerance. Through the introduction and Part One, Chua effectively communicates how the various hyperpowers of history all rose in might through their effective and strategic use of tolerance and acceptance of the different people that came to exist under their control. She also explains how the mighty empires fell through intolerance and lack of an overlying figurehead to which the people could become loyal to. From her research, she is able to support her thesis with the history of the great empires described in Part One.
Chapter 1 focused on the first hyperpower in history: the Achaemenids, rulers of one of the greatest empires to exist. Founded by Cyrus the Great and ending with Darius III (about 559 to 330 B.C.) it is regarded as being one of the most culturally diverse and successful empires to exist. The Empire came to this strength mainly through the effects of their emperors Cyrus and Darius, both being regarded as tactical, effective, and efficient rulers. A major component that was instrumental to the rise of the Achaemenids was the diversity and acceptance of other languages and religions, not just the...

ASSIGNMENT: CHAPTER 15
PRELIMINARIES TO EROSION: WEATHERING AND MASS WASTING
KEY TERMS AND CONCEPTS:
1. What is meant by denudation?
The total effect of all actions (weathering, mass wasting, and erosion) that lower the surface of the continents.
2. Distinguish among weathering, mass wasting, and erosion.
Weathering- The physical and chemical disintegration of rock that is exposed to the atmosphere.
Mass Wasting- The short-distance down slope movement of weathered rock under the influence of gravity; also called mass movement.
Erosion- is the detachment, removal and transportation of fragmented rock material.
3. What roles do rock openings play in weathering processes?
Whenever bedrock is exposed, it weathers. Weathered rock often has a different color or texture from neighboring unexposed bedrock. Most significant from a topographic standpoint, exposed bedrock is likely to be looser than the underlying rock. Blocks or chips maybe so loose that they can be detached with little effort. Sometimes pieces are so “rotten” that they can be crumbled by finger pressure. Slightly deeper in the bedrock, there is firmer, more solid rock, although along cracks or crevices weathering may extend to considerable depths. In some cases, the weathering may reach as much as several hundred meters beneath the surface. This penetration is made...

...EGT Task 2:
A. Price elasticity of demand (Ed) is used to determine if percent change price increases
will percent change quantity demanded decease. In price elasticity of demand (Ed)
there are three possible coefficient categories that can result; elastic, inelastic and
unit elastic. Key components to remember when determining coefficient category, the
threshold is set at one, there are only absolute values, no negative numbers, and the
coefficient can only be categorized as elastic, inelastic and unit elastic. To determine
if the coefficient is elastic, inelastic or unit elastic they would have the following
When price elasticity of demand (Ed) is elastic the coefficient will be greater than one
(Ed > 1). When a percent price change occurs quantity demanded responds strongly
and there will be a large change in quantities consumers purchase. There is price
sensitive in this scenario.
If price elasticity of demanded (Ed) is inelastic the coefficient will be less than one
(Ed < 1). When a percent price change occurs quantity demanded doesn’t respond
strongly and there’s a small change in quantities consumers purchase. There a weak
price sensitive in this scenario.
Lastly, if price elasticity of demanded (Ed) is unit elastic the coefficient will be equal
to one (Ed = 1).Whenever there is a percent change in price there is an equally
matched percent change in quantity demanded. This...
