Practicum Conference AVP (katumbas ng proyekto sa Econ 115)


  • UNANG BAHAGI
  • Ang bawat grupo ay dapat magpasa ng 5-6 pahinang narration/script/text na magsisilbing voice over para sa AVP (TNR 12, double spacing). Isaad rin dito ang transcription ng isasamang panayam sa porma ng video clip. Isama na rin ang iba pang teksto tulad ng dedikasyon, pasasalamat at iba pa.
  • Isulat ito sa wikang Filipino.
  • Maikli lamang dapat ang bawat pangungusap
  • Mag-isip ng angkop na titulo para sa AVP (halimbawa - Katig: Sandigan ng Masang Namamalakaya, Kiriwi: Kasalatan sa Batayang Pangangailangan ng Tribung Alangan Mangyan). Mas mainam kung mas maikli.
  • Kailangan may (1) introduksyon ng lugar, mamamayan at isyu, (2) datos at pagsusuri ukol sa isyu at (3) rekomendasyon at konklusyon
  • Isang partikular na isyu lamang ang kailangan tutukan at gagawan ng AVP.
  • Tiyaking may susuportang datos (facts and figures) sa inyong mga pahayag at argumento.
  • Ipasa ito sa umaga ng May 31 (Lunes) sa DSS. Sa araw na iyon ko rin iwawasto para maibalik agad sa inyo.
  • Dapat maapruba muna ang narration/script/text bago magsimulang bumuo ng AVP.



  • IKALAWANG BAHAGI
  • Tiyaking malinaw, may diin at malakas ang boses ng narrator. Maaaring 1-2 ang gumampan nito sa bawat grupo (magkasunod o halinhinan)
  • Gamitin lamang ang mga panayam sa porma ng video clip kung ito ay makakatulong sa diskurso ng inyong AVP. Gamitin lamang ang video clip na ito para bigyang diin ang inyong argumento. Samakatwid, huwag i-asa sa panayam ang buong AVP. Kaya mahalagang mahusay ang narration dahil ito ang magsisilbing salalayan ng inyong AVP.
  • Maglagay ng subtitle. Tiyaking sapat ang laki at tama ang ispeling.
  • Kung kinakailangan, saliwan ng angkop na background music (instrumental) ang narration. Iwasang matabunan ang narration ng nakabubulahaw na background music. Maaari namang gumamit ng background music na may lyrics sa bahaging walang narration o pawang larawan/video lamang ang ipinapakita.
  • Iwasang magkapare-pareho ng background music. Nakakabagot manood ng mga AVP na may pare-parehong saliw na tugtog.
  • Iwasang maging magastos para sa proyektong ito. Magpatulong sa mga bihasa sa pagbuo ng AVP.
  • Bibigyan natin ng kopya ng AVP ang DSS, mga POs at NNARA.

  • Dapat basahin ang Gabay sa Pagbuo ng AVP ni G. Yfur Fernandez (I-google: Gabay sa Pagbuo ng AVP). Makakatulong ito ng malaki.

Prof. JPaul Manzanilla on people's art


"People's art represents the concerns, ideas and aspirations of the people. I speak of people in broad terms, that of the collective, the majority in any national or social formation. At the risk of being accused of reducing the people in a homogenous category, we must assert that people are those that define the course of history; not the individual but asserting the importance of the individual, not the big men of history but the unnamed and unnameable, the toiling masses that continually assert their existence against their daily erasure in daily life and its representation in art."

The other side of the coin


Election-related problems in the 2010 automated elections

  • Delayed opening of several voting precincts due to technical glitches
  • Poor crowd control (voters, watchers, observers, etc.)
  • Voting place and procedure are not conducive to the disabled and senior citizens
  • Intermittent/continued power failure in several areas
  • Failure of elections in various localities due to the absence of Board of Election Inspectors (BEI) - e.g. Lanao del Sur
  • Wrong delivery of ballots (Iloilo, Samar)
  • Outdated voter's list
  • Under-aged and flying voters
  • Disenfranchisement of voters due to the failure to locate the their names in the official voter's list, or their designated precincts, and their impatience to long queues and disorganized voting procedure
  • Inaccessible Comelec online precinct finder due to in the insufficient bandwidth of the Comelec website
  • Improper voting procedure (e.g. non-application of the indelible ink)
  • Lack of ballot secrecy folder in several voting precincts
  • Long lines due to large volume of voters per clustered precincts (600-1000 voters), malfunctioning PCOS machines and poor automation familiarity
  • Faulty PCOS machines (e.g. power button malfunction, initialization error, etc.)
  • Limited back-up PCOS machines per city/municipality
  • Damaged PCOS due to poor crowd control and security
  • Overheating of PCOS machines
  • Late delivery of PCOS machines and compact flashcards
  • Defective compact flashcards
  • Malfunctioning PCOS batteries
  • Paper jam incidents
  • Several ill-equipped technical support staff
  • Spoiled/rejected ballot due to improper shading, unnecessary markings (ink, water, etc.), unintended crumpling/folding of ballots or for no apparent reason
  • Pre-shaded ballots to favor particular candidates
  • Vote buying incidents (for as low as P20 to as high as P5,000 per head)
  • Election-related violence (e.g. assassination, bombing, ambush, harassment) - 80+ incidents
  • Delayed transmission of voting results due to poor transmission signals and malfunctioning flashcards

Katribu


Iboto
ang
KATRIBU Partylist

Maghalal tayo ng kinatawan ng mga katutubo sa lehislatura na magsusulong ng kanilang batayang karapatan sa lupaing ninuno (ancestral domain) at sariling pagpapasya (self-determination).

Ang mga katutubo ay biktima ng iba't ibang porma ng paglabag sa karapatang pantao tulad ng militarisasyon, dislokasyon, at pagtatangi (discrimination).

Ang kanilang kultura ay pamanang-bayan (national heritage) na batayan ng ating pagkakakilanlan (identity) at kapupulutan din ng maraming kaalaman na may malaking pakinabang sa kasalukuyan (indigenous knowledge systems).

Kailangang tiyakin ang kanilang representasyon sa Kongreso.
Mahalagang bahagi ito ng kanilang pagsasakapangyarihan (empowerment) bilang sektor.
