PABULA
Ang Alitaptap at ang Paru-paro

Isang araw habang naghahanap ng nectar ang Paru-paro ay may batang nanghuli sa kanya at siya’y pinaglaruan. Iniwan siya nitong nakabaligtad at panay ang kawag sa lupa.
Sumigaw si Paru-paro upang humingi ng tulong, narinig siya ng kaibigang Langgam ngunit dahil madami itong gawain ay iniwan siya nito. Makalipas ang ilang oras ay dumating ang kaibigan niyang gagamba ngunit hindi rin siya nito tinulungan sapagkat ayon dito ay aayusin pa nito ang bahay nito.
Malapit nang gumabi ngunit nanatili pa ding nakabaligtad ang Paru-paro. Pagod at gutom ang nararamdaman nang Paru-paro. Pinanghihinaan siyang may mga kapwa insekto pang makakita sa kanya lalo na’t magdidilim na. Hanggang sa maya-maya ay may naaninag siyang munting ilaw na papalapit sa kanya.
“Anong nangyari sa’yo Paru-paro?” tanong ng Alitaptap.
“Ikaw pala Alitaptap, kaninang umaga ay nangunguha ako ng nectar ng may batang lumapit at pinaglaruan ako.”
“Ganun ba? Hayaan mo at tutulungan kita.” Sabi ng Alitaptap.
“Maraming Salamat , Alitaptap.”
Tinulungan nga ng Alitaptap ang Paru-paro at dahil doon ay nakalipad na ang Paru-paro at umuwi sa kanyang tahanang bulaklak.
END
Aral: Sa oras ng kagipitan ay nakikilala natin kung sino ang ating mga tunay na kaibigan.

SANAYSAY
Mga Sanaysay sa Filipino - Tungkol sa Kabataan

Kapag Lumaki Na (Sulating di Pormal)

Pinalaki tayo sa kasinungalingan. Bata pa lang tayo, sinanay na tayo sa mga nilalang na hindi naman natin nakikita. Kapre, tikbalang, manananggal, tiyanak, multo at mangkukulam. Mga lamang-lupa daw ang tawag dito. Nagtataka ako kung bakit hindi isinama ang kamote, sibuyas at luya. Mga lamang-lupa din naman iyon.

Kapag nagkakasakit tayo, ipinipilit ng Nanay na masarap ang lasa ng gamot para sa sakit mo. Kahit kalasa iyon ng tinta ng pentel pen o panis na mantika. Para mapainom ka, kailangang pasinungalingang pagkasarap-sarap ng gamot kahit pati sila kapag umiinom nito ay nagkakandangiwi na rin sa simangot. At may batok ka galing kay Tatay kapag nailuwa mo at naisuka. Sayang ang ipinambili ng gamot.

Ipapanood sa iyo sa TV ang mas lalong pinakamalalaking kasinungalingan. Sesame Street na hindi mga totoong tao ang gumaganap. Palakang nagsasalita, mag-partner na puppet na parehong lalaki (sino kaya ang bading?), halimaw na mahilig sa biscuit, bampirang hanggang 10 lang ang kayang bilangin (minsan up to 12), ibon na kasing laki ng elephant at elepanteng balbon (saan ka nakakita ng elepanteng pagkahahaba ng balahibo sa katawan?) at isang nilalang na mahilig mag-ipon ng basura at nakatira sa basurahan. May tagalog version ito dito sa Pilipinas, ang Batibot. Ang problema, ang pinakabida sa program na ito, isang tuso at isang tanga.

Ililipat naman sa ibang channel na ang tampok ay mga magkakaibigang superheroes. Marami sila sa istorya at lahat ay may angking super powers. Ipinakikita lamang dito ang kanilang kahinaan, na hindi pala kaya ng isang superhero lang ang problema ng mundo. Kailangan din ang tulong ng iba para masagip ang daigdig. Kawawang Superman, walang sinabi. Hindi kayang tumayo sa sariling mga paa.

Tapos ka nang manood ng kasinungalingan este palabas pala sa TV. Gusto mong maglaro sa labas kasama ng ibang mga bata sa kapitbahay. Pero narinig mo ang sinabi ni Nanay. May bumbay na nangunguha ng bata sa kalsada. Tarantadong bumbay ito. Akalain mong pati mga batang nananahimik ay gustong kidnapin. Pero ang totoo niyan, hindi ka pwedeng lumabas dahil bagong paligo ka. At magkakalkal ka na naman ng dumi sa kalye kapag nakipaglaro ka. Tinatamad na si Mommy na maglinis sa iyo.

MAIKLING KWENTO
ANG MATALIK KONG KAIBIGAN
Tulad ng nakagawi-an kong gawin, pagkarating ko sa bahay mula sa paaralan, hinanap ko ang pahayagan. Ipinatong ko ang pagod kong paa sa bangketo at inumpisahan kong basahin ang kolum ni George Nava True tungkol sa kalusugan at mga sakit sa katawan.
Sunod kong tinunghayan ang Entertainment at pagkatapos nito, sinulyapan ko ang mga pangalan ng mga namatay sa obituary.

Laking gulat ko nalang ng nakita ko ang pangalan ng matalik kong kaibigan. Bigla akong tumayo na naninikip ang dibdib.

Sinabi ko sa nanay na namatay na si Rivhard at pupuntahan koagad sa St.'s Peters Chapel kung saan siya nakaburol.

Sa St.'s Peters, sinabi sa information na sa huling silid sa kaliwa naroon ang aking kaibigan.

Sa pagkapasok ko pa lamang sa silid ay nakita ko na agad ang iba naming kabarkada. Puro sila malu-lungkot at halos maiyak-iyak.

Di ko mapigil ang aking luha habang minamasdan ang mukha ni Richard sa loob ng kabaong. May mga tapal ang kanyang pisngi at noo. Lumapit sa aking ang kapatid niyang si Cristine. "Nabundol ang kotseng sinasakyan niya."

"Saan nangyari ito?" ang tanong ko.

"Sa may Magallanes Village, sa Expressway, noong Sabado. Walang ngang nakakita sa plate number nong truck. Hit and run kasi ang nangyari."

"Nanghinga ako nang mabasa ko sa pahayagan ngayong hapon. Nagmamadali nga akong pumarito," wika ko.

Isang mabait at masayang kaibigan si Richard. Marami siyang kaibigan, mahirap at mayaman. Buhat pa ng maliliit kami ay mag kaibigan na at madalas magakasama, nagbabasketball, namamasyal, nagsisimba, at iba pang gawain ng mga bata.

Number System

...NUMBER SYSTEM: When we type some letters or words, the computer translates them in numbers as computers can understand only numbers. A computer can understand positional number system where there are only a few symbols called digits and these symbols represent different values depending on the position they occupy in the number. A value of each digit in a number can be determined using * The digit * The position of the digit in the number * The base of the number system (where base is defined as the total number of digits available in the number system). TYPES OF NUMBER SYSTEM: There are four types of number systems: * Binary number system * Decimal number system * Octal number system * Hexadecimal number system BINARY NUMBER SYSTEM In mathematics and computer science, the binary numeral system, or base-2 numeral system, represents numeric values using two symbols: typically 0 and 1. More specifically, the usual base-2 system is a positional notation with a radix of 2. Numbers represented in this system are commonly called binary numbers. And it is also the most commonly number system in computer DECIMAL NUMBER SYSTEM The decimal numeral system (also called base ten or occasionally denary) has ten as its base. It is the numerical base most widely used by modern civilizations. OCTAL NUMBER SYSTEM The octal, or base 8, number system is a common system used with computers.

Abortion by the Numbers

...Abortion by the Numbers: Although worldwide abortion numbers have decreased, millions of women elect prochoice every day and the numbers add up. On a worldwide scale, every 1 in 5 pregnancies end in abortion. Worldwide: Majority of the declining number of abortions came from developed countries where abortions are performed legally and safely from 39 to 26 per 1,000 women aged 15-44, versus in developing countries where majority of the abortions performed are unsafe an illegal from 34 to 29. From these figures we can see that more women in developing countries are more likely to have an abortion due impart to the disparities in developing nations such as a lack of contraceptives causing unintended pregnancies, lack of sexual education and male counterparts who oppose the idea of contraceptives. Worldwide, medication abortion has gained broad acceptance. At least 39 countries have registered mifepristone, 35 in the last 10 years. Because the world’s population is concentrated in Asia, most abortions occur there (26 million yearly); nine million of these take place in China. In the US, abortions are steadily decreasing among women of child bearing age (15-44), with 40% among white women, 67% among blacks and 53% among Hispanics are unintended. Women in their 20s account for more than half of all abortions; women aged 20–24 obtain 33% of all abortions, and women aged 25–29 obtain 24%. Thirty-seven percent of women obtaining abortions identify as Protestant and 28% as......

Fibonacci Numbers

...Fibonacci Numbers In the 13th century a man named Leonardo of Pisa or Fibonacci founded Fibonacci Numbers. Fibonacci Numbers are “a series of numbers in which each number is the sum of the two preceding numbers” (Burger 57). His book “Liber Abaci” written in 1202 introduced this sequence to Western European mathematics, although they had been described earlier in Indian mathematics. He proved that through spiral counts there is a sequence of numbers with a definite pattern. The simplest series is 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144…and so on. When looking at this series the pattern proves that adding the previous number to the next will give you the following number in the series. For example, (1+1=2), (2+3=5), and etc. In order to ensure accuracy when using Fibonacci Numbers a formula was created. The formula or rule that follows the Fibonacci sequence is Fn = Fn-1 + Fn-2. By plugging in any numbers in a problem to this equation a student can find the right answer. This gives students the ability to calculate any Fibonacci Number. In modern times society uses these numbers to calculate numerous things. For instance, like the sizes of our arms relative to our torso and even the structure of hurricanes. On another note, Fibonacci Numbers can also be found in patterns in nature. It is truly astonishing to think about how relations in Fibonacci Numbers may possibly be represented in our lives.

In mathematics, a real number is a value that represents a quantity along a continuous line. The real numbers include all the rational numbers, such as the integer – 5 and the fraction 4/3, and all the irrational numbers such as positive square root of 2,√2. Real numbers can be thought of as points on an infinitely long number line. In basic mathematics, a number line is a picture of a straight line on which every point is assumed to correspond to a real number and every real number to a point. Often the integers are shown as specially-marked points evenly spaced on the line. Although this image only shows the integers from −9 to 9, the line includes all real numbers, continuing forever in each direction, as shown by the arrows and also numbers not marked that are between the integers. It is often used as an aid in teaching simple addition and subtraction, especially involving negative numbers. On the number line, numbers......

Random Numbers

...Random numbers in C++ and The Pythagorean Theorem Name Course Date Random numbers in C++ and The Pythagorean Theorem Introduction Computer programs in light of the technological advances that have been made, arguably make up for the most important concepts in such developments. A set of instructions designed to assist a computer to prefer a given task is referred to as a computer program. There are numerous languages used to create/design computer for instance Java Script, Java, C++, SQL and Sage (Laine, 2013). Computer programming is defined as a process of developing a working set of computer instructions meant to aid the computer in the performance of a given task. Computer programming starts with the formulation of a valid computer problem. This process is then followed by the development of an executable computer program, for instance Firefox Web Brower (Laine 2013). It is worth noting that there are other programs in the same realm. Computer programming is a diverse field that is of utmost importance in the modern world, especially with the continuous expansion of the internet. Perhaps the relevance of this can be underlined by the fact that computer programming has carved out as a course on itself. Computer programming is offered under several courses studied in colleges and universities (Laine, 2013). Computer programming is not only for computer students but for all who use computers on a day to day basis. This is by extension everyone since the...

“the Numbers Game”

...“The Numbers Game” A Speech by SEC Chairman Arthur Levitt Article Review The article, “The Numbers Game” 1 is about the Securities Exchange Commission (SEC) Chairman, Arthur Levitt’s concern over earnings management. Specifically, he expressed during a speech at the NYU Center for Law and Business his distress over an evolving problem with a game played among market participants to manipulate their financial reporting numbers motivated by Wall Street earnings expectations. Chairman Levitt is very passionate and direct in his 1998 speech. It appears that he was invited to honor Bill Allen, the first Director of the NYC Center for Law and Business and he took the opportunity to use this occasion as a platform to voice his concern over the growing problem of market manipulation made by public companies. Mr. Levitt feared that this practice could destroy the quality of earnings and financial reporting. Levitt, the SEC and other aligned corporations were all concerned with the growing practices of financial manipulation fearing that deception appeared to be losing out to integrity. Mark 8:36 says, “What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul?” Corporations who conduct such deceitfulness are winning at the cost of their existence. They are willing to bet their whole life for a few moments of glory on Wall Street. In my opinion, it was very courageous for Mr. Levitt to call out these corporations and put them on notice that their......

There Is Strength in Numbers

...There is Strength in Numbers Once upon a time, there was a rich business man. He had three sons. All of his three sons were greedy and lazy. The sons knew that their father was a wealthy person, but they had forgotten that how much hard work their father had done. They were fighting with each other for money and the assets. The father was very worried about his kids. He knew that if his kids will be fought like this with each other, then his competitors would take advantage of this in the business. So he was thinking about how to make his sons realize that they must always work together. Finally one day, he got idea of how to make his sons realize the important of unity. He called his kids in his room one day. He gave each son a wooden stick to break with their hands. All three of his sons broke the wooden stick. Now, the business man gave each son 2 wooden sticks to each son and told them to break them. All three sons tried and they finally broke the sticks this time but it was little bit harder than the first time. Now, the business gave each son 5 wooden sticks together to each son and told them to break all of them. All three sons tried to break the 5 wooden sticks but this time none of them succeed. They looked each other and tried again and again but they couldn’t. Finally, the business man told them, “see when I gave a single wooden stick, you would broke it easily. But when we added one by one more sticks the task became harder for you. And finally all reached...

Number Game

...REMARKS BY CHAIRMAN ARTHUR LEVITT SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION THE "NUMBERS GAME" NYU CENTER FOR LAW AND BUSINESS, NEW YORK, N.Y. SEPTEMBER 28, 1998 Thank you very much. Dean Daly, Dean Sexton and to everyone gathered this evening, thank you for welcoming me tonight. I am honored to be here on such an auspicious evening for both NYU and Bill Allen. The creation of the Center for Law and Business recognizes an important truth: we cannot continue to view the worlds of business and law as parallel but separate universes. And NYU could not have selected a more qualified or thoughtful individual than Bill as its first director. His leadership of the Delaware Court of Chancery -- acknowledged as the nation's most influential arbiter of corporate law -- confirmed his reputation as a great thinker who effortlessly bridges the worlds of law and business. I've heard from friends on Wall Street that it's a far less stressful experience to hear Bill lecture in front of a classroom than from his former seat on the bench. Seven months ago, I expressed concerns about selective disclosure. Through conference calls or embargoed press releases, analysts and institutional investors often hear about material news before it is made public. In the interval, there is a great deal of unusual trading. The practice had been going on for a long time. And, while everyone was aware of it, and most were extremely uncomfortable with it, few spoke out. As the investor's advocate, the SEC did and we......

Number 40

...Number 40 The feeling of forgetting a phone, a name, and an address is simply frustrating and can mess with your head. It can make you quite uneasy and ruin the rest of the day. Some part of you is not really there, when you forget you’re most valuable belongings. The feeling of forgetting and delirious is exactly what we see in the short “Number 40” by Sarah Butler, from the anthology The Picador Book of 40, 2012. In the short story Number 40 we meet the anxious and unbalanced Melissa. Melissa is feeling anxious because she forgets a lot of things, and this time it is her phone. The short story is told through a third person limited narrator, where the narrator follows the forgetful Melissa throughout the story, and the reader is only able to read only her thoughts and feelings (s. 1, ll. 1-2) Melissa is living with her fiancé Simon: “Now they were living together”. “The ring Simon has given her two weeks ago” – “Three neat diamonds caught in three gold claws”. Simon has proposed to her, just two weeks ago. Melissa felt sick at the time, Simon proposed to her (s.3, ll. 84-85) she either felt vile because of the food or maybe she had a bad hunch towards the relationship. Moreover the relationship did not always seem to go as smooth (s.1, ll. 1-7) She feels like he is ignoring her, like she is not even there. The narrator uses flash back (s. 1, ll. 14-27) where Melissa and Simon was on vacation, where everything seemed wonderful and happy. But as soon as they came......

Number Tree

...Number Three The world now a day seems to be split into mainly to worlds - The Western - and the eastern world. It appears to be the idea, in the western part, that people in for example China only are put into the world for ‘our’ delight. That all they should ever do is just work in factories or the tertiary sector and never granting them a single thought. It is this prevailing idea, and the biggest population on the earth, that gives the Chinese leaders a lust for power and a unique opportunity of taking advantages of the lower classes, making them work longer hours and paying them less. It is a great scenario moneywise for the Western firms because it is possible for companies to produce/submit their products to absurdly low prices. But who is affected when western people make extraordinary demands? In the short story ‘Number Three’ Anna Metcalfe (A.M.) tries to give one version of what happens when an employee, on the one hand, has a manager, whom the employee is scared of asking for help and thereby showing weakness, and on the other hand has a ‘customer’, whom the employee is trying to satisfy and comply with the demands there may come. In the short story, we are introduced to Miss Coral. She now lives in the city Chongqing in China. She was born and raised a few hundred miles in the country.

Number Three

...Number Three The postmodern society is constantly changing. All the old things such as buildings are replaced with the impeccable modern ones. Just like the former English Teacher, Miss Coral who is caught between a rock and a hard place. Today people have to be perfect and everything we are occupied with must be done flawlessly. The author Anna Metcalfe emphasizes exactly this issue in the short story “Number Three”, where Miss Coral is trapped in a culture clash. She´s replaced with a so called “Real English Teacher” – the contemporary ideal person, Mr. James. Miss Coral is replaced with Mr. James who is supposed to be a better teacher than her. Her boss says he has done her a favour by making her an international hostess, in charge of an English teacher program. After all he could have chosen to fire her, “The director was keen that she should not take the redistribution of her skills as a sign of promotion (…) she has been withdrawn from teaching on grounds of incompetence”, (line 13-15). Throughout the short story “old” Miss Coral is equated with the Tianfu slum. She is replaced with Mr. James, who is modern and new. The old city is also replaced with something better and fresh, “The shanty town shacks of Tianfu, half flattened, are making way for settlement housing”, (line 19-20). The setting plays a major role in the short story as it refers to Miss Coral´s state of mind. The big polluted city has “flattened” Miss Coral and her career. The smog and dust in the......

Number 40

...Number 40 In the story Number 40, it is clear that it is a third person point of view. The narrator talks about the main character as "she" and her by her name. We see that in following quotes, "Melissa hated forgetting things" (p. 1 l. 1) and "She watched raindrops chase each other down the bus window". This is two quotes where the narrator clearly uses third person of the main character. This is something that happens through the whole story, so the point of view doesn't change. Furthermore me can say that it is a limited narrator in some ways, because we don't know how the main characters deep emotions. On the other side we know how she is as a person, that she is forgetful and how she feel about her living fellow Simon, talking to the other girl Emma or Emily, who she clearly had forgot the name of because she is this forgetful. If we look on the setting, I will start give a characterizing of both Melissa and Simon. Melissa is confused and forgetful. She is also a bit jealous on Simons friend Emma or Emily from work. Furthermore you can say that she might be full of fantasy because she suddenly can't find her house or might even live in a fantasy world. On the other hand there is Simon, he is presented as superior, in that way he knows better, and she will always call him if there is something she can't remember, we see that in following quote "But couldn't remember the name. if she'd had her phone she would have called Simon, because he was good at things like......

Number Crunching the Numbers

...Running head: CRUNCHING THE NUMBERS Crunching the Numbers PAD 505 Public Budgeting and Finance Prepared by: Margaret Mack Prepared for: Dr. Angela Parham Strayer University May, 13,2012 Margaret Mack 2339 Wavetree Lane NW Acworth, Ga., 30101 May 13, 2012 There are two infrastructure projects to choose from and the city council wants to pick only one. The projects are independent so they could choose both if they like. I have done the calculations to see which is the most beneficial and would be a better decision. When making the decision we could look at the one with the lower payback but this is the least effective rule for making our decision. The Net present value (NPV) is the most effective rule for making our decision. Project A is a new housing development and project B is downtown parking facility. In addressing infrastructure projects A and B the calculations show that project A has a payback 5.21 years for year 1, 4.18 years for year 2 and 3.53 years for year 3. Project B has a payback period of 2.44 years for year 1 and a payback period of 1.17 for year two. So in order to meet our required objective of 2.75 project B is the best choice because it falls under what our projected payback period of 2.75 years. However, as previously stated this is not a reliable rule in decision making. Consequently, since project B has an internal rate of return that’s greater than our twelve percent requirement this makes it an attractive choice. Also this......
