sangkachapsuyan

  • interesante ang kumakalat na e-mail na may pamagat na "kung pinoy si noah."
  • sexual partialism=pagkahumaling sa partikular na bahagi ng katawan (binti, cleavage, leeg)
  • mahina pa rin ang pilipinisasyon at pagsasakatutubo (indigenization) ng agham panlipunan sa bansa, lalo sa ibang pamantasan
  • kinukondisyon na ng mga malls at media ang mga konsumer na papalapit na ang disyembre sa pamamagitan ng pagpapatugtog ng mga awiting pampasko (frequency, intensity & consistency).
  • 3 yugto sa pagsisinungaling: (1) totoong si sta. claus ang nagbibigay ng regalo sa mga bata, (2) paglaya mula sa kasinungalingang ito, (3) pagpapaniwala sa mga magiging anak na dapat itong paniwalaan
  • sa altar ng karapatang pantao, walang atheist o agnostic (wika ng punong mahistradong si puno)
  • mas interesante pa rin para sa akin si miriam kaysa imelda
  • powder blue (paboritong kulay n'ya?), powder gun (utak-pulbura), hindi matinag sa puder (kapit-tuko, Ate Glue): Gng. Gloria Macapacal-Arroyo
  • halos 50,000 na ang abugado sa bansa (taas-kamao para sa isang abogadong kakilala ko na sadyang ipinatalo ang kaso ng kanyang negosyanteng kliyente na lumabag sa karapatang pantao ng kanyang pobreng manggagawa)

DS 123 Agenda

Ang Pambansang Kahihiyan

  • Weeks before Erap's ouster, anti-Gloria forces sarcastically pointed out that GMA actually stood for Gahamang Maupo Agad -very true, ask Mike A.
  • -11% is Gloria's current net approval rating (SWS).
  • Since '01, Gloria has already appointed 9 AFP chiefs of staff (where they stayed for only an average of 11 months) and positioned 30+ (I lost count already) ex-AFP and PNP generals in the government departments, state firms and ambassadorial posts. READ: politicizing the state's security forces
  • Gloria knows very well who and how to pamper with pork, perks and positions.
  • Gloria's mantra is to crush foes and protect friends (in turn, they are also expected to be protective of her)=transactional politics
  • PhilStar columnist Boo Chanco aptly calls her Ate Glue (glued to her position).

DS 126 ANNOUNCEMENT

  1. DEADLINE (INTERVIEW PROJECT): OCT. 6 (SAT)
  2. INDIVIDUAL REPORTING (HAND-OUT: 1/2 CROSSWISE OF 8X11 BONDPAPER; LIMIT THE PRESENTATION TO 5-6 MINUTES)

  • TAYAG (EDITORIALIZING)
  • SARIMO (A.M. RADIO PROGRAMS)

  • LINTAG (FILIPINIZATION OF PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION)
  • LAZARO (POLITICAL THOUGHT OF CONDRADO DE QUIROS)
  • FELIX (POLITICAL THOUGHT OF ALEJANDRO LICHAUCO)

Triskaidekaphobia?

  • Erap had a fall-out with his buddy Chavit Singson, who then testified against him in his plunder trial.
  • He inaugurated the Sandiganbayan court house in '99-just to be convicted in the same building.
  • He voted for the passage of the plunder bill in '94 when he was still a senator-just to be charged of the same crime 13 years later.

Some coincidence:

  • He is the 13th president.
  • JOSEPH ESTRADA (13 letters)
  • PERFECTO YASAY (1st public official who stood vs. Erap-BW scam, remember?)-13 letters
  • CHAVIT SINGSON (13 letters)
  • SANDIGANBAYAN (13 letters)
  • PASSAGE OF THE PLUNDER LAW IN '94 (9+4=13)

Dialectical (The Erap-Gloria Storyline)

Erap left the Palace after the military-backed popular revolt in 2001.
The SC ruled that it was a "constructive resignation."
Gloria (once his VP) took over as his constitutional successor
Erap supporters launched a siege (EDSA III)
but Gloria's security forces prevailed
3 proxy polls have already passed since then:
2001: Gloria's Senate slate got the majority (8-4)
2004: Gloria cheated Ronnie; her slate also dominated (7-5)
2007: Erap slate got the majority this time (7-2-3)
2010: will be a continuation of this saga
Indeed, their political fate have crossed and overlapped since 2001.
It's also very adversarial.
Time will tell who between the two is in the right side of history.
Or maybe none of them.

Ruling Elite (quotes from Elmer Ordonez)

"The ruling elites may seem fighting each other
to the finish but the bottom line is that
they don't ultimately annihilate each other (eg. Gloria vs. Erap).
Accomodation of each other's interest,
despite the bruises, is the general idea."
* * *
"The ruling elite have a natural capacity for survival through the logic of reproduction.
The methods include, lying, cheating and stealing
with the use of their political, ideological and represive machinery."

Pasasalamat

Ipinapaabot ko sa NNARA-Youth ang pasasalamat para sa porum na inyong inilunsad para sa aking mga mag-aaral sa NSTP DevStud Program noong Sabado (Setyembre 22)
Taas kamao para sa pakikiisa ninyo sa mga magsasaka sa kanilang lehitimong laban para sa lupa, buhay at karapatan. Taas kamao rin para sa inyong patuloy na pagmumulat sa kapwa n'yo mag-aaral ng lipunan at kasaysayang Pilipino sa loob at labas ng pamantasan.
Hindi naging limitasyon ang inyong uring pinanggalingan (petty bourgeois) at ang distansya ng kanayunan mula kalunsuran para maging katuwang nila sa pagsusulong ng repormang agraryo.
Totoo, hindi hiwalay ang laban ng mga mag-aaral sa laban ng mga magsasaka.
Salamat po ulit.

quote from the sandiganbayan decision

“…the case at bar appears similar to a “wheel” conspiracy. The hub is former President Estrada while the spokes are all the accused, and the rim that encloses the spokes is the common goal in the overall conspiracy, i.e., the amassing, accumulation and acquisition of ill-gotten wealth."

Notes for SS 120 (Topic: Sociology of Work)

A private consultancy firm has been experiencing a high turn-over rate among its research staff eversince. The pattern is observable among the new recruits and pioneers alike. The following are seen to be the reasons behind this:
  • obsolete technology (considering the dependence of the research staff on online sources)
  • low salary (especially for full-time, non-MA degree holders)
  • high expectation from the superiors (which intimidates new comers)
  • overworked (throughout)
  • demoralization when admonished by the company president
  • poor physical arrangement of the office (which exposes the researchers to unnecessary noise thereby disrupting concentration)
  • lack of incentives (psychic reward and/or job promotion)
  • lack of a separate HR Dep't (the HR function is fused with the Accounting Dep't)
  • entropy (personal attitude-usually dysfunctional-defines individual work ethic)

DS 127 (Interview, 4-5 members/group, Submission: Oct. 3)

Post here your chosen interviewee. Undertake a preliminary research before doing the interview. Expected output: transcription (edited), photo documentation and analysis

politics (manner of organizing power to pursue a particular objective or set of objectives)

Heightened political divisiveness
Political divisiveness is expected to further heighten as the nation awaits the verdict of the Sandiganbayan, the country’s anti-graft court, to the 6-year old plunder case of Joseph “Erap” Estrada on September 12. The much-awaited promulgation over the charges of alleged jueteng payola and tobacco tax kickback against the deposed president will determine his fate as a freeman or a felon, thereby bringing the Erap vs. Gloria storyline to a greater level of apprehension until 2010 and even beyond.


Resurrection of the Hello Garci controversy
The round of Senate inquiries over the Hello Garci controversy called by the opposition bloc has brought again to the fore the issue of illegitimacy surrounding the Arroyo presidency, rendering it an intense battleground between pro- and anti-Arroyo forces. Administration senators criticized the opposition for exploiting it as a venue to launch their bid to the presidency in 2010 at the expense of the taxpayers’ money. Oppositionists, on the other hand, accused the Arroyo loyalists of stonewalling and cover-up. Meanwhile, Senate President Manny Villar assured that his leadership will not lose its focus to the legislative function of the Upper Chamber considering the urgency to pass priority socio-economic bills.

Dam ni Gary Granada

Dam
Gary Granada

Sa ngalan ng huwad na kaunlaran
Ang bayan ko'y sa utang nadiin
At ito na ang kabayaran
Ang kanunu-nunuang lupain
Ang mga eksperto'y nagsasaya
At nagpupuri at sumasamba
Sa wangis ng diyus-diyosan nila
Ang dambuhalang dam
Damdam damdam damda dadam
Damdam damdam damda dadam
Damdam damdam damda dadam
Ang dambuhalang dam
Ang mga tribu'y nagtatatangis
Nananaghoy at nababaliw
Habang ang mga turistang mababangis
Nalilibang at naaaliw
Sa mga pulubing nagsasayaw
Mga katutubo ng Apayao
Na napaalis kahit umayaw
Alang-alang sa dam
Damdam damdam...
Titigan ninyo ang gahiganteng bato
Nagsasalarawan ng lipunang ito
Tulad ng mga gumawa rin nito
Walang pakiramdam

limang maryang nakarelasyon ni t(oble)rone

si pura walang kasiguraduhan, lumarga tungong aprika
philam life insurance plan naman ang kalakal ni lutgarda
tulad ng nauna, si irma sa tate sasadya magmamaestra
si conching, (para makatakas?) nag-pi-ph.d. sa europa
