KASPIL1 - Mr. Xiao Chua / Dr. Dery / Mr. Viktor Torres / Mr. Bascarra
KASPIL2 - Mr. Xiao Chua / Dr. Dery / Mr. Viktor Torres
- All of them are good in terms of grades & does not give heavy workload. Mr. Chua (for me) is the best choice but all of them are profs to pick because they’ll really make history fun for you. Grades are pretty high & all are sure pass if you’ll attend their class :) As for Mr. Bascarra, super chill and nice professor. He knows how to speak french, Italian, Spanish, and German! Just recite and you’ll get a 4.0 from him. Always attend class so you will be exempted for the midterms and finals. VERY GOOD PROFESSOR and it is beyond doubt that he’s a sure pass prof.

FILKOMU - Mr. David San Juan
- Gives really high grades. Super chill and cool prof! Like a friend in class and you’re going to enjoy being in his class. He’ll give a lot of readings but even if you will not read them, he is really kind and considerate and still give good grades. The lowest grade he gave was 3.5 in our class or 3.0?

FILDLAR - Mr. David San Juan / Ms. Sison-Buban / Mr. Correa
- Same comment for Mr. San Juan. As for Ms. Sison-Buban, she will require you to do 2 videos and that’s all, and you will translate some verses as part of the course but she gives good grades. Lowest was 2.0. But you will get a +.5 if perfect attendance! :) As for Mr. Correa, his class is fun. Gives high grades too and not that hassle but you need to comply with his requirements but if you want to make your life a whole lot easier, GO FOR HIM. So all of them are good profs :)

STATACC - Mr. Erickson Quijano
- He gives quizzes which are quite hard. But he gives really good grades at the end of the term "daw". Also, you will laugh every meeting. He's a funny funny prof! SWEAR. Sure pass too. Just attendance class and act as if you're listening ;)

ENGLRES - Ms. Borlongan / Mrs. De Guzman / Ms. Migallos / Ms. Parina / Ms. Sipacio
- Borlongan, gives high grades, chill, you will learn a lot, very approachable and nice prof. As for Ms. De Guzman, quite demanding. You think you'll fail but she's really really nice. You will learn a lot from her although sometimes, it gets boring. But she gives high grades and very considerate and fun! Migallos, Parina, and Sipacio are good profs as well. They are okay in terms of workload. They give high grades just do your part. Chill profs!

ENGLCOM - Ms. Dita / Mr. Hervas / Ms. Balgos
- They said that Dita is the best choice for ENGLCOM. Chill. Fun. High grades. Learn :) Same with Mr. Hervas and Ms. Balgos. All of them are kind, considerate, understanding, and generous! :)

ACTBAS1 - Mr. Crisostomo / Mr. Joven / Ms. Velasco
- Mr. Crisostomo gives good grades. Quizzes are not that hard but you need to study. Fun professor. :) Mr. Joven gives hard quizzes but you will learn in his class and gives fair enough grades so STUDY!! As for Ms. Velasco, she's a LEGEND. She is good for accounting majors because she really knows what she is teaching. She might be intimidating at first but when you get used to it, she's the BEST. Quizzes are so hard so it's possible not to pass any of her quizzes if you'll not study. Get her if you want to be challenged and this ain't ordinary challenge ;)

ACTBAS2 - Mr. Menaje / Mr. Mercado / Ms. Clerigo
- Mr. Menaje, gives fair with grades. VERY TRICKY & HARD QUIZZES. Don't give incentives. The only plus points you can get are the points if you will prepare PERFECT financial statements. Took him twice but you will NEVER REGRET taking him. You will learn a lot & YOU NEED HIM FOR THE QUALIFYING EXAM if you are a BSA Major. But be prepared. I might be able to help you too if you want to take him because I know how it is to be in his class + I have some old tests that you could really USE :) As for Mr. MERCADO, very funny prof. MODERATE QUIZZES. Okay when it comes to teaching. I was never in his class but I have heard from a lot of people that he's funny talaga and he's worth taking as well. Good grades too if you are fond of studying ;) Also, he adjusts depending on the highest grade in your class. As for Ms. Clerigo, sure pass prof. Not that "maarte" when it comes to folder/business case. Gives away powerpoints. If you want an easy prof, go for her. But she's not really for BSA Majors because she is quite boring and she doesn't teach that good as what I have heard. But when it comes to grades, I think she's lenient and she's nice + approachable.

ACTPACO - Mr. Gonzales / Mr. Menaje / Ms. Baluran / Ms. Velasco
-Same comment for Mr. Menaje and Ms. Velasco. As for Ms. Baluran, she's motherly but you need to do some self-studying. She's nice and a sure pass prof if you will let her feel that you want to listen to her. Quizzes are rather hard but she's really considerate. As for Mr. Gonzales, a cool prof (the fact na mohawk pa ang hair niya). Quizzes are rather hard and tricky but he teaches really well. Possible maka-4.0 if you understand fully what he is teaching but you really need to be careful when answering his quizzes. Also, he's considerate & fun. Adjusts grades too (depending on the highest grade among the people in his class).

ACTMANA - Mr. Magcale / Mr. Quijano
-Same comment for Mr. Quijano (see STATACC). As for Mr. Magcale, he really knows what he is teaching. Really good prof! Quizzes are do-able but you need to study! He is also kind and approachable just try your best while learning! In terms of grades, he's okay. FAIR & JUST.

OBLICON - Ms. Zenaida Manalo / Mr. Quan / Mr. De Jesus
-Ms. Manalo is a LEGEND. You do not need to recite much but have the book. She will really explain the certain things on the book through understandable example situations. She is really nice and fun class too! :) As for Mr. Quan, he gives very good grades. Not the hard. Fun prof too. :) Considerate + gives additional points. +.5 if perfect attendance. Even adjusts. Sure pass! Crossword puzzle exam & essay type quizzes but not that difficult. :) As for Mr. De Jesus, he's really nice, gives good grades, quizzes are okay and you will learn. He's not that harsh when it comes to recitation. :)

PARTCOR - Mr. Tolentino / Mr. Nethercott / Ms. Cruz
-TOLENTINO - Good grades. Kapag perfect attendance, sure pass na just listen to his lectures. Mahilig magbigay ng plus. Easy recitation questions, funny prof, a prof to pick REALLY :) As for NETHERCOTT, funny prof, Chill (as what I have heard), Checks attendance, Quizzes are from the book (definition most likely), Good grades. As for ROS, a prof for LEGMA people. Hard but you will really learn a lot & very very good at teaching. Fair with grades. As for J. CRUZ, super chill prof. Gives good grades but you need to read the book to learn! ;)

BUSMATH: Mr. Hapitan
-He's okay in terms of quizzes. He's not that harsh and his quizzes are not that hard as well. Sure pass too! Considerate professor but you need to study. You will learn naman something from him just listen to his lectures. :)

MARKET1 - Ms. Sanchez / Ms. Acosta
-Both of them are good in teaching and in grading. They give good grades and less hassle. Quizzes are not that hard. They are profs to pick. Some say Sanchez is better, some say Acosta. But over-all, they're quite the same. So I would recommend both. If you're under Sanchez, always recit because she has favoritism at times :) Gives easy midterms too :)

HUMALIT - Dr. Evasco / Mr. Espiritu
-Go for Dr. Evasco if you wanna learn BIGTIME in humalit. She's a good prof, but she makes you do a bit of work and reading. But she gives pretty good grades! You will do a lot of papers on different readings. There is also a final oral exam and a poetry recital. I enjoyed her class although many of my classmates dropped her. Well, it's their loss (I THINK). As for Mr. Espiritu, a very chill prof. Gives really good grades and he is not that demanding when it comes to papers and things. Fun class if you're under him :)

HUMAART - Mr. Darcy / Ms. Kabayao
-Mr. Darcy is a very cool prof. Likes saying bad word and really funny! Gives high grades too. He will make you build your own clay statue/masterpiece and you will have quizzes too but not that hard. Grades are really unexpected. :) Range: 3.0 - 4.0 :) As for Ms. Kabayao, super chill prof. Gives 4.0s! Very considerate and very kind. Hot prof too ;) Hahaha.

INTFILO - Sarza / Pantaleon / Dela Cruz / Mary Velasco
-Pantaleon gives really high grades (4.0 mostly). Chill and very nice prof. You will learn and you will enjoy the class. There's not so much on quizzes. A prof to pick ;) As for Dela Cruz, she gives pretty good grades too but quite boring at times. Chill prof too! :) As for Sarza, she also gives good grades and her teaching style is okay. You just need to listen in class which is hard :)) As for Velasco, a great prof. Grades will depend on how you listen in her class. You need to take down notes because it will be of really GREAT HELP sa mga quizzes. She's nice and considerate but you really need to listen to her lectures and take down notes. If you don't like writing notes, WOULDN'T RECOMMEND HER. :)

TREDTWO - Ms. Sayago / Fr. Dagmang / Mr. Raymundo / Mr. Mozol / Mr. Salcedo / Ms. Ancheta
-All of them are great profs. CHILL. FUN. LEARN. HIGH GRADES. NICE. They have it all ;)

COMALGE - Mr. Edmundo Perez
-An okay prof. Grades will depend on your quizzes. Rarely adjusts. Kind of boring so do some self studying. Not that good in spelling too.

PERSEF SUBJECTS - Ms. Marybeth Nave
-VERY COOL. All 4.0! ;) That's all I can say. REALLY REALLY COOL PROF!! SUPER FAB! She is into cosplaying, reporting on NEWSTV, and model! She's a mentor too in John Robert Powers! LIKE A FRIEND!

LBYACC1 / LBYACC2 - Mr. Villagracia / Mr. Quijano
-Same comment for Mr. Quijano (see STATACC) but he gives away 4.0 and 3.5 in Lab Accounting subjects (and other lab subjects under him). As for Mr. Villagracia, he is very very considerate. Like a kabarkada and he gives really good grades too! CHILL BUT DO YOUR WORK AND YOUR PART. Submit everything and you'll get a high grade :)

INTSOCI - Ms. San Juan
- the lowest grade she gave was 2.0 in our class. There will be a midterm and final exam and you need to do some research papers but she is really considerate and very kind. Gives pretty high grades!! :) I must say that she's really a prof to pick. CHILL CHILL CHILL. :)


-She adjusts grades. Very nice professor. You will also learn in her class just listen. Quizzes are not that hard. You may approach her if you can't understand the lesson. Chill. :)

- She is a legend in marketing. She is like the counterpart of Elsie Velasco. Very hard but you will really learn bigtime. If you are a marketing or advertising major, you should get her. If not, I don't think so. :) To survive in her class means that you're good! ;) Grades will depend on how you exert effort in her class and how you will take the subject seriously. Also, for the final paper, just a tip, make it more than 10 pages ;)

- She is really considerate and sweet. She gives good grades too. She will not make you do a lot of things in class. I was under her in ECONONE and I find her okay. You will learn but she does not give powerpoints. Quizzes are not that hard :)

- If you want to learn + you want a fun prof + you want to get good grade = GO FOR HIM :) That's all I can say.

- gives good grades, kind of boring because she's old but very considerate and nice. But over-all, people say that Pangan is worth taking + a prof to pick! :)

- He will give you +10 in your FINAL GRADE when you attend a seminar/talk, quite demanding when it comes to papers, 2 very hard quizzes, you think you'll fail but at the end of the term, GRADES WORK LIKE MAGIC ;)

-She's demanding and you cannot afford to miss a class because you will do something every meeting. HASSLE but gives fair enough grades at the end of the term. You need to put effort.

- He fails students and not that good with grades. :)

- CHILL PROF. Take home quizzes. Cool prof. Adjusts grades. Easy midterms. Gives really good grades at the end of the term.

- Rarely adjusts & she also gives somehow hard quizzes. Although, you may learn something from her and she will discuss the topics thoroughly too. :) Grades will depend on your quizzes and homeworks (exercises on the workbook)

- Some say she's nice + sure pass but some also say that she's not. But one thing's for sure - you need to put effort if you're under her class and take the subject seriously ;) Grades depend on effort! She is really fair with it. It is also possible that you'll fail her class, get 1.0 or 1.5.

- Marc Spencer Sy is my prof in BUSORGA and I really had fun. He's quite green but you will learn in his class. He does not check attendance but you need to do some paperworks. He gives away all the powerpoints you need. Give high grades (just do your part and the papers) Oh, you also need to do a business case but by group. He's very cool. VERY VERY COOL :)

- Likes to give bonuses + gives good grades + you will learn something from his lectures = PROF TO PICK!! You're really lucky if you're under his class :)

- Most likely she gives 4.0 but it depends on how she treats your section. But most of the comments about her is that she gives high grades but really really boring.

-Chill. Gives high grades. Will not let you do a lot of things. Very considerate and fun prof. :)

- Both are sure pass and gives good grades. But the best choice will be Borromeo although both of these professors are okay too when it comes to teaching, grades, and attitude :)

- A very very chill prof and easy 4.0. Quizzes are easy (if there's any depending on her mood). Very considerate and kind. You will really like to be in her class. PROF TO PICK :)

- She's a good prof but quizzes are rather hard so you really need to study. It is possible to get the grade that most students want but you really need to exert effort in her class. :)

- A very nice professor. You will never get bored in class although you need to do some talking since it's Speech and Communication. Gives good grades. Just be prepared with all the speeches ;)

- A sure 4.0 prof. He will not let you do a lot of work & doesn't give quizzes too. You will learn. A perfect choice ;)

- Gives really high grades. Very considerate professor. He will help you a lot with the things you need to do and very approachable and kind. Not much of a hassle. A very good choice if you want to have fun, get good grades, and learn without having the feeling of intimidation and pressure :)

- Pretty prof. Very kind but likes to have recitation every meeting. Always have the book because it will really come in handy during her class but you need to read the book ahead of time because recitation would be random. Grades fairly. Does not give so many 4.0s. Effort is needed :) No quizzes, just lots of recitation.

- A very kind prof. He does not give very hard quizzes. Grades are unexpectedly good. Just recite and be practical when answering. He is not the harsh instead he is very considerate. A PROF TO PICK. :)

- She is kind and motherly. She gives some of the answers to the workbook and she also gives powerpoints. Quizzes are moderate but some say that her quizzes are really hard (but I don't think so). You need to study for the course, sometimes by yourself. She likes telling real life stories. It's like every ppt slide has a story of her own. :))))) Grades are okay. She adjusts. And those under her said that she's a sure pass prof except if you are not attending class and your quizzes are really really low.

- Gives really high grades. Chill and very nice. Just do your work and it's okay. :) I recommended him already (look above) :)

-Fails students. Kind of hassle. :( Just try to avoid this professor as much as possible but if you're up for a challenge, then GO!

-Gives good enough grades. A bit hassle but not too much. You need to do the papers well. Sometimes you will make a lot of papers for 90 minutes and it's quite really complicated but this prof's really nice and grades are okay.

-A very very kind professor. Gives high grades. Recite when there's a chance to recite. Attendance, not so harsh. Quizzes are do-able and not that hard as how people could imagine. There are even times when you'll not have any quizzes at all (based on my sources) but most likely, you will :) Just do your part but over-all HE'S A PROF TO PICK!! GO GET HIM, REALLY :)

- He's teaching mods so that means that he's okay when it comes to teaching but some of my friends said that he's quite "sabog" at times but manageable and kind. Quizzes are kind of hard but do-able if you studied for them. Grades will depend on the results of your quizzes, midterms, finals :) FAIR ENOUGH. Effort's needed though.

- She is okay - kind. Teaches well enough. Not that intimidating and harsh. She's quite nice but quite hassle too. Grades fairly and adjusts too. You will learn and I must say that she's not a prof to avoid.

- Pretty prof. REALLY! But she's quite book-based so you really need to have the book (the green one) and grades fairly too. No quizzes, just random & hard recitations every meeting (and you need to answer well). You need to read the book ahead of time so you are capable of answering the questions she will ask. :) Typical.

- She is nice and gives good grades (but there are students that failed her class). Kind of boring but chill prof. Not that demanding. Do your part and everything will fall into place. :) Good prof just do all the requirements :)

- She has a downloaded lecture notes in Scribd :) She grades fairly but quizzes are rather hard (but not as hard as Ms. Velasco's). You really need to study in class. She knows what she is teaching so better listen although there are times where you'll be bored but that's conditional but every meeting is filled with learnings. Have the folder (where the exercises on the workbook will be compiled) and business case. Study because grades will depend on your performance and effort. Adjusts a little but not high. Gives incentives which you will need ;)

- Doesn't teach that well. Quizzes are rather hard but he adjusts. It's hard to learn in class so sometimes you need to do some self-studying which is hard. Some quizzes are take home and library work. Grades fairly but not that high. :(

- Very very kind and considerate. Quizzes are easy. Gives high enough grades. Discussions are all about the exercises on the workbook and some theories. Sure pass if you put a little effort in class. NOTE: If you're a BSA major, I wouldn't recommend him but if you're not, he's a good choice. :)

- Mr. Paderna is a good prof. He knows what he's teaching and he is really good. You need to listen and take down notes at times. He gives huge bonuses if perfect attendance so try not to be absent. Grades are okay. He is kind and very positive :)

- You will learn a lot in class (if you're listening) and likes telling stories of real life. Grades are fair enough too. Sometimes, you tend to get bored but try to listen as much as possible. A typical prof :) Not a prof to pick but not to avoid.

PERSEF: RJ MONATO - A very good professor and gives really high grades. Discusses for 30 minutes then game throughout so you will really enjoy every persef class. You will learn a lot from him as well. A perfect choice although persef professors are random so it's kind of rare to be in his class (Thank you Elvis Ngo for this recommendation)

GENDERS - ROSALLA DOMINGO - Very recommended. Very chill and gives high grades! You will learn too. They even said that she is very nice and considerate :) Not demanding! (Thank you, Angela Palmones for this recommendation).

- There's nothing much I could say about this professor but he's good at teaching. He is recommended by my friend who took him because he gives good enough grades at the end of the term. Not that hassle and an okay prof. He is not book-based. It'll be better to listen to him but over-all, he's okay.

- She is a sure pass prof and gives high grades. Quizzes are really easy but you need to do some self studying because she is really not that good at teaching. Do the exercises on the workbook. If you only want a sure pass prof, get her. If you want to really learn, then I wouldn't recomment her. If you're a BSA Major and it's your first take of ACTBAS2 or any Basic Accounting subjects, I wouldn't recommend her. :)

- Sure pass. Gives high grades. You will learn in his class. Fun but there are times where you'll get bored but he will try his best to let you focus. They said he's awesome and "the best". So I think he's a prof to recommend :)

-A sure pass professor. He is kind and considerate but kind of boring. Quizzes are either by group or open notes. He entertains questions while quiz time. Keep track of the syllabus because he follows the schedule there most likely. Teaches well and gives good grades at the end of the term.

- He is kind of intimidating. Gives hard quizzes too. Kind of hassle too. He does not adjust much and he gives fair enough grades -- grades will depend on quizzes and requirements. Gives incentives so grab the opportunity because you might need them to pass. Not that recommended (for me).
-Gives a systematic and thorough lecture and pays great attention to detail. If he likes the class there is a chance he will cancel you lowest quiz as to bump up your GPA. There is a chance to get a solid grade in his class if you show him that you're working hard and deserve the grade.

- He is a sure pass prof. Kind of hassle and you need to study. He is okay & considerate too. There are also times that he'll be leaving the room while you're having your quiz --- YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN :))

- He's okay. Gives good enough grades but not that high. Quizzes are moderately hard but he teaches well. He is not the friendly type of professor but he is good :)

- People say he's a terror prof but he's nice naman. But he fails students who really do not put any effort at all but most likely, SURE PASS. He gives really really hard quizzes. Likes telling stories. You need to do some self studying too. With regards to grades, FAIR ENOUGH.

-He gives fair enough grades as what people say (sometimes, they comment that he doesn't but most of them said that he is). Talkative in class & you wouldn't dare to go out while you'rei n his class. Don't be late if you don't want to sing. No quizzes, just midterms and finals. He is funny and approachable when outside the classroom, but when in class... take him seriously. Don't ever dare to sleep, doze off, or whatsoever because he will notice you.

- Grades will depend on your quizzes. Quizzes are out of this world. It's quite hard even if it's multiple choice most of the time. Well, always be prepared. You'll learn from him bigtime. But he does fail students.

INTFILO: MR. GOJOCCO- This prof is cool but you really need to be attentive. Do well in everythig that he will ask you to do. He knows what he is talking about most of the time. Grades depend on effort. Does not give 4.0 that much. He fails students so take his subjects seriously ;)

- She gives away 4.0! COOL PROF. VERY COOL. She teaches Basketball. Even if you're not that good, you'll receive a grade of 3.5 - 4.0 :)

- What can I say? Hmm. Sure 4.0 ;)

SCIMATB (and other Science related subjects): MS. FLORES - Chill. Gives high grades. - --- Requirements are not that hard. Quizzes? Not so. She is considerate as ever. She's very kind too! I highly recommend her since some Science professors give away low grades.

-Sure pass. Easy 3.5 - 4.0. Very considerate, fun and kind. A great prof! you'll learn a lot and enjoy a lot ;)

FINMAN2: ELEAZAR, VIVIAN - Likes giving away quizzes for FINMAN2 but she adjusts grades. Very considerate and kind too. Recitations? Not much. Doesn't give away so many 4.0s since your grade will really depend on effort. She gives incentives too if an organization will ask her to give such. Over-all, she's nice. I would recommend her but still, study for the quizzes. But, she's a sure pass prof. :) Not that chill but not that hassle as well. Her way of teaching is typical too :)

-Hindi mahilig magparecite. Quizzes are rather hard pero most likely T/F at multiple choice lang. Some say boring pero most of them say na masayang prof yan. I'm not sure if he curves grades eh but he's good raw. Nice and considerate too. :)

FILDLAR: Dr. Emma Sison
-Takes the matter of Fildlar very seriously, and your grade will be heavily weighted on her quizzes and midterm exam. Project paper and defense in place of a final exam. Mediocre performance in the tests but a good final paper can merit you a 2.0

ENGLCOM: Rentillo, Phillip
-Chill professor overall, his class is just a matter of attendance and doing fairly well in his quizzes. Gives decent grades, and is definitely a prof to pick.

TRED SUBJECTS: Gabe, Melchor Giovanni
-He doesn't give many tests or quizzes, rather lets his students make presentations and teach each other. Not difficult to get a 3.0-4.0 in his class if he knows you and you can consistently recite and contribute to the lecture.

HUMABEH: Gaerlan, Martin
-Very nice guy, has held management position in various companies so he definitely knows what he's talking about concerning his subject. Moderately difficult quizzes and his final exam is a project paper and presentation. He is a prof to pick if you want to learn from someone who has qualifications in the field of management. His grades will range from 2-3.5 depending more on your final project and attendance and class participation.
- He makes you recite for 30 mins or more depending on his contentment as to your answers. Most of BSA acquaintances dropped him when they knew that he'll be our professor for Negotin since they failed in OBLICON (although our grade requirement for that subject is 2.0). He is kind of intimidating but he's okay. However, he's not that sure pass and you really need to read the book. All quizzes are surprise ones and in essay form (2 questions only). But the midterm and finals have T/F, multiple choice, and essay. You really need to work for your grade and READ.

Eva Ibbotson - a Company of Swans

...the stone parapet of the bridge on which she stood, her face was pensive and her feet— and this was unusual in the daughter of a professor of classics in the year 1912— were folded in the fifth position. She was a thin girl, brown-haired and brown-eyed, whose gravity and gentleness could not always conceal her questing spirit and eagerness for life. Sensibly dressed in a blue caped coat and tarn o'shanter bought to last, a leather music case propped against the wall beside her, she was a familiar figure to the passers-by: to ancient Dr. Ferguson, tottering across the willow-fringed bridge in inner pursuit of an errant Indo-Germanic verb; to a gardener trimming the edges of the grass, who raised his cap to her. Professor Morton's clever daughter; Miss Morton's biddable niece. To grow up in Cambridge was to be fortunate indeed. To be able to look at this marvelous city each day was a blessing of which one should never tire. Harriet, crumbling bread into the water for the world's most blase ducks, had told herself this again and again. But it is not cities which make the destinies of eighteen-year-old girls, it is people— and as she gazed at the lazy, muddy river and thought of her future and her home, her eyes held an expression which would have better become a little gutter starveling— a bleak and shipwrecked look devoid of happiness and hope. Professor Morton was already in his forties when, at a reading party in Switzerland, he met an English girl working as a governess to......

Mammoth Research

...has already established a technique to extract DNA from frozen cells."Preparations to realize this goal have been made," said Prof. Akira Iritani, leader of the team and a professor emeritus of Kyoto University.Under the plan, the nuclei of mammoth cells will be inserted into an elephant's egg cells from which the nuclei have been removed to create an embryo containing mammoth genes.The embryo will then be inserted into an elephant's womb in the hope that the animal will give birth to a baby mammoth.Researchers from Kinki University's Graduate School of Biology-Oriented Science and Technology began the study in 1997.On three occasions, the team obtained mammoth skin and muscle tissue excavated in good condition from the permafrost in Siberia.However, most nuclei in the cells were damaged by ice crystals and were unusable. The plan to clone a mammoth was abandoned.In 2008, Dr. Teruhiko Wakayama of Kobe's Riken Center for Developmental Biology succeeded in cloning a mouse from the cells of mouse that had been kept in deep-freeze for 16 years. The achievement was the first in the world.Based on Wakayama's techniques, Iritani's team devised a technique to extract the nuclei of eggs--only 2 percent to 3 percent are in good condition--without damaging them.Last spring, the team invited Minoru Miyashita, a professor of Kinki University who was once head of Osaka's Tennoji Zoo, to participate in the project.Miyashita asked zoos across the nation to donate elephant egg cells when......

Organizational Behavior and Management

...consequence of policy change, a professor was reverted as lecturer and his immediate subordinate was elevated to professor and head of department cadre. A tremendous change in his approach and attitude towards colleagues as well as students was observed. How would you account for such change? Give your arguments. Solution: Sometimes there is internal movement within an organization when due to policy change, employees are promoted, transferred or demoted. In the case in question, as a result of policy change a professor has been reverted as lecturer and his immediate subordinate has been elevated to professor and head of department cadre. One can confidently say that this is a clear case of demotion. A demotion can be defined as a compulsory reduction in an employee’s rank or job title within the organizational hierarchy of a company, public service department or other body (Wikepedia, 2012). It is also the reassignment of a lower job to an employee with delegation of responsibilities and authority required to perform that lower job and normally a lower level pay. It is the direct opposite of promotion. A demotion may be done for a variety of reasons such as disciplinary purposes, reorganization of work, inability to perform at a higher rank, poor attendance, and poor attitude; therefore, it is in this light that most people view it as a punishment. When somebody is demoted he/she may be demoted within a department as in the case of the professor according to the......

Managerial Accounting

...Basillio Corespondencia AC330 - Managerial Accounting for Business Professionals Professor Christine Covan Unit 10 Writing Assignment   Reflect and describe which key concepts and topics in this course have made you a stronger candidate to enter the business world. When I first began this course, I didn’t really understand what Managerial accounting for Business Professionals were. I was very confused and also a bit intimidated with what is expected and how is the professor going to be. In my previous classes I have had some professors who seem to not care about us students. I have felt often that since it’s an online environment they could answer whichever way they want because there isn’t anyone to meet face to face to speak. Professor, you have been a wonderful teacher and mentor for us. I couldn’t have asked for anyone better. Even though some of the weeks were challenging I was able to overcome them. What I enjoyed the most was the budgeting planning in Unit 6.I am always looking to grow within my job and department, so learning some other things and being able to speak with my peers about what I have learned enables me to show that I am eager to move up the ladder of success and get promoted. I think that the Wiley assignments were very educational and with the 5 chances that we were given to do the work, this really helped me analyze and truly learn how to solve a problem. Discuss how this course has affected you in your professional development as a...

...Fairfax Metropolitan Hospital: The Candidate Fairfax Metropolitan Hospital: The Candidate M. June Allard Assumption College Worcester State College Professor Emerita Fairfax Metropolitan Hospital is a moderately sized teaching hospital committed to quality care from a qualified staff. The hospital currently suffers from a lack of diversity among its staff, however—a glaring fault in nearly every unit at the hospital and one pointed out by several accrediting agencies. The hospital now seeks to develop a more diversified staff, which they define as one representing the racial/ethnic diversity of their community. In addition to diversifying, there is an urgent need to modernize the nursing department, as its outdated procedures and inefficient practices concern accreditors. Compounding the hospital’s concerns is the recent retirement of the director of nursing—just as another nursing accreditation visit looms on the horizon. THE INTERVIEW HR director Jorge Hansen listens as the search committee discusses a candidate they have just interviewed for the director of nursing position. The candidate is Dr. Saryn Soysa, a heavyset, pleasant young woman. Although she is very much overweight, she looks even younger than her 32 years. Originally from Sri Lanka, she has been educated in U.S. universities and is now a U.S. citizen. Dr. Soysa’s credentials are truly outstanding. She took advanced exams, graduated early from college summa cum laude, and......

Sample Recommendation Letter for Undergraduate Student

...where you have performed well. They also come from teachers who have worked closely with you--supervising a paper, exchanging ideas in a seminar, or holding discussions during office hours. It is much better to get 2 very good recommendations than to get 2 very good ones and 1 mediocre one. You definitely want to ask professors for whom you made an A or B+, not those for whom you made a B- or C+. In any case, it is worthwhile to ask potential recommendation writers if they could please review your materials and let you know if they will be able to write a recommendation that will help you. You might add, "If you cannot write a strong recommendation, I will understand and appreciate your telling me." After all, a faculty member may not know you well enough or may be unsure if you should undertake graduate work right now. It is much better to learn that firsthand (even if it is unpleasant news) than to get a lukewarm recommendation from that person. Also, if you worked closely with a teaching assistant, please let the faculty member know which one to contact. That could also help your recommendation. Checklist of key items to include in a packet for the professor: Put everything in the packet. Please put your name, email, and purpose of the recommendation on the outside. • Packet with your name, email address, and purpose of the recommendation, such as law school, an MA program, or a particular type of job • Cover Sheet with your name, address, phone, e-mail,......

A Comparsion of High School and College

...Comparison Essays 10/28/13 A Comparison of High School and College “Education is a gift of knowledge that can not be stolen and can bring you to the top of your dreams.” It is one of the most important assets in every individual’s life. Moreover, Education is a key factor to a successful and a professional life. High school and college are both fundamental of education, which help students to grow and enhance their lives with knowledge. However, they are two completely different worlds. The three differences aspects of high school and college are responsibilities, academic subjects and instructors. The first distinction between high school and college is responsibilities. High school students can count on their parents and teachers to tell them what to do. Parents and teachers are always there to help high school students in reminding them of their academic responsibilities and provide instructions in setting their priorities. Also high school is full with rules and regulations. If high school students behaved inappropriate, they will be punished. On the other hand, college students must balance their responsibilities. One of the most important responsibilities for college students is time management; they have to set their own priorities. In college, one will be treated like an adult because they are more mature. Unlike, high school, college does not have a lot of rules and regulations. Though, college students are expected to take responsibility along with...
