Jejemon History: How It All Began
Several years ago, a lot of the youth joined text messaging clans while others played online MMORPG games like Ragnarok, Flyff, and Gunbound. Some, with the urge to find and get to know people of all ages online, joined in social networks like Friendster and Multiply. At that time, Friendster was in while Facebook was not what it turned out to be at present.
Due to the necessity of having to relay a message abruptly so as not to be delayed in action (while playing, texting or commenting), they tried to make messages they type really short to an extent that every word was internally altered using numbers to creatively displace letters that would still make the words readable. Of course, Jejemonism was not that intense and obvious at that time.
It took a longer time before the more educated ones realized that something's not right and one thing has to be done - to abide by what is being conventionally dictated by society. At that moment, many of the younger generation became adapted to this kind of typing style for they really thought that it was somehow cool, manageable and widely accepted within their age range. It was the new hip at that time, but as it grew out of nowhere, concerned academic people took this as a threat to the educational standards. In time, Jejemonism became the latest source of boiling social debates.
As time propelled and confusion arose, people who got addicted to this type of grammar destruction were termed Jejemons and were subjected to social criticisms. Somehow, they were associated to the Jologs due to the similarities in their style and fashion statement. Not all Jejemons are Jologs since some only type Jejenese but do not wear the same attire the Jologs wear. Also, not all Jologs are Jejemons because Jologs love to use…...

Rheumatic Fever

...Rheumatic Fever Rheumatic fever is common worldwide and is responsible for many cases of damaged heart valves. . Although the disease seldom occurs, it is serious and has a mortality of 2 - 5%. Rheumatic fever primarily affects children between ages six and 15 and occurs approximately 20 days after strep throat or scarlet fever. The recurrence of rheumatic fever is relatively common in the absence of maintenance of low dose antibiotics, especially during the first three to five years after the first episode of rheumatic fever. Heart complications may be long-term and severe, particularly if the heart valves are involved. Diagnosis: Modified Jones Criteria Two major criteria, or one major and two minor criteria, when there is also evidence of a previous strep infection support the diagnosis of rheumatic fever. Major Criteria: • Carditis: inflammation of the heart muscle which can manifest as congestive heart failure with shortness of breath, pericarditis with a rub, or a new heart murmur. • Migratory polyarthritis: a temporary migrating inflammation of the large joints, usually starting in the legs and migrating upwards. • Sydenham's chorea (St. Vitus' dance): a characteristic series of rapid movements without purpose of the face and arms.

Jejemon

...Jejemon From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jejemon (Tagalog pronunciation: [ˈdʒɛdʒɛmon]) is a pop culture phenomenon in the Philippines. According toUrban Dictionary a Jejemon is a person "who has managed to subvert the English language to the point of incomprehensibility."[1][dead link] The Philippine Daily Inquirer describes Jejemons as a "new breed ofhipster who have developed not only their own language and written text but also their own subculture and fashion."[2] with "-mon" meant as "monster," hence "jeje monsters."[3] Origins The origins of short-handed typing was through the short messaging service, in which each text message sent by a cellphone is limited to 160 characters. As a result, an "SMS language" developed in which words were shortened in order to fit the 160-character limit. However, some jejemons are not really "conserving" characters; instead, they are lengthening their message.[4] On April 14, 2010, on a Pinoy Tumblr, a post about vice presidential candidate Jejomar Binay indicated that he was the Jejemon's preferred vice presidential candidate, complete with a fake poster with him called as "Jejemon Binay." Later the use of word jejemon to refer to such people made rounds in various Filipinointernet message boards.[4] Such short-handed language is not limited to Filipinos: Thais use "5555" to denote "hahahaha," sincethe number 5 in Thai language is pronounced as "ha."[2] Demographics The Jejemons are said to be the new jologs, a term......

Jejemon Thesis

...pagkakaroon ng mga kabataan ng tinatawag nilang jejemon mentality. Ayon kay kalihim ng Department of Education (DepEd) na si Mona Valismo, mariin niyang tinututulan ang paggamit ng mga kabataang Pilipino ng pagbaybay at balarila nito lalo na sa paggamit ng mga kagamitang panteknolohiya katuad na lamang ng text messaging. Nasabi rin sa isang interview ng isang jeje buster o ang mga taong ayaw sa paggamit ng jejemon na si Nheigeio Balatbat, 19 taong gulang na mag-aarl na habang isinasama mo ito sa iyong pamumuhay, nagiging parte na ito ng iyong buhay ng hindi mo namamalayan. Nakakita siya ng isang valedictorian na gumagamit ng jejemon at siya ay nabigla at nabahala sa maling balarila na ginamit niya sa knaiyang Freindster account. Nangangahulugan lamang na malaki talaga ang naging bunga paggamit ng mga modernong wika katulad nito. Ngunit ayo kay Bishop Joel Baylon, puno ng CBCP-Episcopal Commission on Youth, ang paggamit ng mga kabataan ng jejemon ay isa lamang ekspresyon. “Hindi kailang alalahanin ito kasi yung mga bata, gumagawa lamang sila ng mga bagy na nakpagpapasaya sa kanila..parang expression lang ‘yan, lifestyle, katulad ng paraan ng kanilang pananamit, ‘yung ayos ng kanilang buhok. Hindi ako masyadong nag-aalala dito sa jejemon na ito. Ito lamang yung paraan nila upang mailabas ng mga kabataan ‘yung kanilang mga kagustuhan at kanilang mg nararamdam.” Samakatuwid, nakikita ng obispo na hindi hadlang ang paggamit ng jejemon sa halip ay isang paraan ng......

...and passive voice.  However, with the emergence of the jejemon languages, educational authorities are trying to convey its effect on the students. According to UrbanDictionary.Com, it is anyone with a low tolerance for correct punctuation, syntax and grammar. This definition is limited to the linguistic style of Jejemons. But in reality, Jejemon is a new breed of hipsters who have developed not only their own language and written text but also their own sub-culture and fashion. For brevity, I will limit this article to Jejemon language, which for lack of grammatical “canon” on how to call it, I will call it the “Jejenese” and their alphabet, “Jejebet.  The Jejenese is not just confined to Pinoy Jejemons. Just before I wrote this, I played “Warcraft” and found a European opponent who enjoys typing “jejejeje” in a very wide context, much to my disdain as he sabotages my online quests. Another group of foreign Jejemons, although their Jejemonism seems so trivial to actually classify them as Jejemons, are the Thais who type “hahaha” this way: “5555.” You will see a lot of these in your Thai friend’s Facebook status messages. Since, the number 5 translates to “ha” in Thai, as explained by my friend Pakorn Dokmai. I’m sure many of you have personal encounters with other foreign Jejemons, be in Manila or abroad. So we can assume that Jejemon is a worldwide phenomenon.   Text messaging is the first ever evidence that the Jejemons are not just fictional creatures; they really......

Hay Fever

...Hay Fever A runny nose, stuffed nose, wheezing, facial pressure and pain, coughing, watery, itchy and swelling eyes are all symptoms of this yearly burden. Breathing difficulties at night, violent sneezing, and constant rubbing of the eyes are what this allergy is feared for. Although it is better known for only haunting victims during the early spring till late summer, this horrible problem can be around nearly all year long. Depending on one’s surroundings and when certain plants pollinate, Hay Fever causes a huge inconvenience for 26.9 million people in America, according to the National Center for Health Statistics. Hay Fever, also known as allergic rhinitis, causes cold like symptoms due to an allergic reaction to various plants, mold and dust particles. Effects may be felt almost immediately after exposure and can even develop to an extreme state causing Asthma or Eczema. Though a common and not so deadly allergy, this affliction has plagued my family through the generations. Merriam-Webster defines Hay Fever as an allergic reaction to pollen. However, Hay Fever is not just a simple reaction and it is caused by so much more than just pollen. These outdoor allergies are caused by grass, tree and weed pollens, dust mites, cat dander, certain molds and stinging insects. Because there are so many different types of activators, outdoor allergies can last through every season. Most pollen from trees pollinate during the early spring. Grass pollinates during the late......

The Earth Has a Fever and the Fever Is Rising....

...“The earth has a fever and the fever is rising … We are what is wrong, and we must make it right.” In the context of global warming, discuss the extent to which you agree with this statement. (40 Marks) Global warming refers to the way that heat is being trapped in the atmosphere due to the greenhouse effect. The greenhouse effect is when heat is trapped in our atmosphere by gases such as Carbon Dioxide. The greenhouse effect is actually a good thing because without it, the Earth’s global temperature would be around 33 degrees’ cooler which would mean life on earth would be completely different as ecosystems etc. would have to adapt to this. However, global warming is when there is too much of the greenhouse effect so too much heat is being trapped in our atmosphere and therefore causing the global climate to increase in heat. “The earth has a fever and the fever is rising … We are what is wrong, and we must make it right.” suggests that humans are the reason that the temperature has risen in the last century. Over the last 100 years (since 1900), the global surface temperature has risen by around 0.85°c (1.53°F). Although this doesn’t sound like a huge difference, it is around 10 times faster than average. Since the 1950s, the earth’s atmosphere has also increased in temperature, by roughly 0.1°c per decade (a similar rate to the earth’s surface), as well as the oceans absorbing heat and are now about 0.4°c warmer than in 1969. The fact that the atmosphere has also...

Fever

...What is a fever? Fever refers to an elevation in body temperature. Technically, any body temperature above the normal oral measurement of 98.6 F (37 C) or the normal rectal temperature of 99 F (37.2 C) is considered to be elevated. However, these are averages, and one's normal body temperature may actually be 1 F (0.6 C) or more above or below the average of 98.6 F. Body temperature can also vary up to 1 F (0.6 C) throughout the day. Fever is not considered medically significant until body temperature is above 100.4 F (38 C). Anything above normal but below 100.4 F (38 C) is considered a low-grade fever. Fever serves as one of the body's natural defenses against bacteria and viruses which cannot live at a higher temperature. For that reason, low fevers should normally go untreated, unless accompanied by troubling symptoms. Also, the body's defense mechanisms seem to work more efficiently at a higher temperature. Fever is just one part of an illness, many times no more important than the presence of other symptoms such as cough, sore throat, fatigue, joint pains or aches, chills, nausea, etc. Fevers of 104 F (40 C) or higher demand immediate home treatment and subsequent medical attention, as they can result in delirium and convulsions, particularly in infants and children. Fever should not be confused with hyperthermia, which is a defect in your body's response to heat (thermoregulation), which can also raise the body temperature. This is usually caused by......
