...Bais, A (2012) The Noli Me Tángere Catalyst of Revolution 1. Summarize the author's ideas in your own words. There are several points that the author mentioned in this article. However, he focused on the idea of Rizal using his writings especially the Noli Me Tangere as a catalyst of revolution. He stated there that Rizal intentionally used his writings to fight against the Spaniards and he did not want to take the power of Spaniards over us, instead he wanted us to be assimilated with Spain. It was also mentioned by the author that Rizal would rather use pen and a paper because he didn’t want useless bloodshed. He believe that Filipinos are not prepared for the revolution. 2. Do you agree with the idea that he wants to convey or not? Why? Yes, maybe Rizal intentionally wrote his articles to ignite the emotions of his readers and show their nationalism through a revolution. There are several events in the novel Noli Me Tangere and El Filibusterismo that reflect the kind of oppression that Filipino experienced from the Spaniards. These written proofs are enough to ignited the urge of Filipinos to fight for their own rights. 3. Based on this writing, what kind of 'Rizal' does the author want to portray to us? Rizal as a reformist. He was able to fight for what he believes in without using any force. However, I would say that he can also be considered as a revolutionalist because his writings were one of the reasons why Filipinos fight against Spaniards. We know Rizal as an......

...Death March to Bagumbayan. About 6:30 A.M., a trumpet sounded at Fort Santiago, a signal to begin the death march to Bagumbayan, the designated place for the execution. The advance guard of four soldiers with bayoneted rifles moved. A few meters behind, Rizal walked calmly, with his defense counsel (Lt. Luis Taviel de Andrade) on one side and two Jesuit priests (Fathers March and Vilaclara) on the other. More well armed soldiers marched behind him. Rizal was dressed elegantly in a black suit, black derby hat, black shoes, white shirt, and black tie. His arms were tied behind from elbow to elbow, but the rope was quite loose to give his arms freedom of movement. To the muffled sounds of the drums, the cavalcade somnolently marched slowly. There was a handful of spectators lining the street from Fort Santiago to the Plaza del Palacio in front of the Manila Cathedral. Everybody seemed to be out at Bagumbayan, where a vast crowd gathered to see how a martyr dies. Going through the narrow Postigo Gate, one of the gates of the city wall, the cavalcade reached the Malecon (now Bonifacio Drive), which was deserted. Rizal looked at the sky, and said to one of the priests: "How beautiful it is today, Father. What morning could be more serene! How clear is Corregidor and the mountains of Cavite! On mornings like this, I used to take a walk with my sweetheart". While passing in front of the Ateneo, he saw the college towers above the wallls. He asked: "Is that Ateneo, Father?" "Yes...

...This essay was written by our national hero about 100 years ago. So it is probably high time for us to find out how we fared and how close we were to this predictions, and how we can learn from it. Dr. Rizal predicted two options for the Filipino People during his time. First, Filipinas would be considered Spanish territory, but this would happen if and only if the Filipinos were treated with respect and equality under law, and only if liberalization happens. Yes, it did not happen, so the second option, that the Filipinos would shake off the Spanish yoke, came true. So this is what we are going to follow, and we will compare and contrast what Dr Rizal predicted and what actually happened. Dr. Rizal predicted that the revolution would be bloody, and by bloody hell it was. Filipinos fought tenaciously, that is until the Americans came. Dr. Rizal also predicted that the Americans would come, however he predicted that it would be unlikely since "this is contrary to her traditions." However, America did this through cunning and not through direct military conflict, and to hell with traditions! Americans had been hypocrites... And i hope they will no longer be. Reading through the essays of Rizal, one could say that the hero is not just as great writer but a great Historian as well. His essay, The Philippines a Century Hence presents a radical prophesy of Rizal of how the Philippines would be through the century. Rizal presented a clear idea of how our Motherland...

...Ang Paglalakbay ni Dr. Jose Rizal Bitbit ang layunin niyang turuan ng leksiyon ang mga espanyol at ipaglaban ang kanyang inang bayan, tumungo si Jose sa Europa upang ipagpatuloy doon ang pag-aaral niya ng Medisina matapos ang kinuhang pre-med sa Unibersidad ng Santo Tomas. Sa pangunguna ng kangyang kapatid na sina Saturnina at Paciano ay pinahintulutan si Jose ng kanyang mga magulang na maglakbay mag-isa para sa kanyang pag-aaral bagamat lingid ito sa kaalaman ng kanyang unang iniibig na sa Leonor Rivera pagkat batid ni Jose na di ito sasang-ayon sa kanyang pag-alis. Tanging ang pagmamahal lamang niya sa kanyang bansa at ang kanyang pagkauhaw sa kaalaman ang matibay na sandigan ni Jose sa kanyang paglalakbay. * Singapore Lulan ng barkong Salvadora ay tinungo ni Jose ang unang destinasyon, ang Singapore. Dito ay nakadama siya ng di pagkakomportable sapagkat siya lamang ang nag-iisang Pilipino at walang kakilala sa lahat ng mga pasahero ng barko. Sa kanyang paglalakbay sa Singapore ay lubha siyang humanga sa ganda ng tanawin dito at mga magagarang istruktura na ayon sa kanya ay maaaring maikumpara sa mga gusali sa Maynila. * Kanal Suez Samantala ang barkong sinasakyan ni Jose ay dumaan rin sa Suez Canal at sa kanyang pagtahak dito ay namangha muli siya sa kanyang mga nakita tulad na lamang ng Kamelyo sapagkat ito ang unang pagkakataon na makakita siya ng ganoong hayop dahil mga kabayo’t kalabaw lamang ang madalas niyang makita sa Pilipinas. * Espanya...

Ust Case

...UST Inc. is considering a debt-for-equity recapitalization. In the deal, UST will issue $1 billion debt to buy back stocks. In class we argue that an important determinant of a firm’s debt policy is the tradeoff between the tax benefits of debt and the costs of financial distress and bankruptcy. Mature firms generating positive and stable operating income are more likely to take advantage of the debt tax shields and less likely to verge on bankruptcy, and thus may consider using more debt in their capital structure. Do you think UST Inc. would benefit from this transaction? Between 1988 to 1998, UST has enjoyed excellent financial performance. The firm has posted continuous increase in sales, earnings and cash over the entire period with a 10 year compound growth rates of 9%, 11% and 12% respectively. Most noticeably, the firm has also maintained margins with average gross profit, EBITDA, EBIT and nets margins of 77%, 53%, 50% and 31% respectively. Judging from the financial performance of UST (stable positive earnings), we can firmly conclude that the UST is an assets-in-place firm. The purpose of the debt-for-equity recapitalization is for UST to enhance their overall firm value. 1. First, UST will benefit from the interest tax shield. a. Tax Shield = Corporate Tax Rate * Debt = 0.38 * 1 billion = $0.38 billion In addition, the recapitalization will decrease the number of outstanding shares and as such generate higher returns for shareholders. Moreover...

...UST 259 Event Analysis In this article a man in Texas owns over 60 acres of land on his property. While going over his land he finds that there is an abandoned oil well that was abandoned decades ago. Before he found this current oil well he had a previous abandoned oil well on his property too. This oil well had to be taken care of because it was leaking water bubbles and bits of oil too that was described in the article as “not a pretty sight to see at all”. The landowner is having trouble with the government because they are debating to even properly seal them back up. The biggest concern to the government with this issue is that it is very costly to seal such old oil wells back up. In the article wells of this age cost in the range of 30,000 dollars up to 170,000 dollars. The landowner needs the government to take care of this situation because it is ruining his soil underneath his land, the ground water that is beneath the land as well, and the pollution that is occurring in the air of his fields. Simply put if this situation does not get taken care of, soon he will no longer be able put his land to use at all. This article relates to an ample amount of issues that we have discussed within our classes. It could be an example from the temperature and weather because of the pollution that the abandoned oil wells bring about. Also, it is a prime example of the soil development we discussed in our lecture. If the pollution continues in the ground water it would......

...The movie Jose Rizal which was excellently played by Cesar Montano as the lead role was a heartwarming one that shows how Rizal runs his life. While watching the movie, I felt mixed emotions given the fact that it was made to help us, Filipinos, understand what our national hero had done for the country. It shows how Rizal really love his mother country for him to sacrificed his own life. The film also works through a series of flashback showing Rizal as a genius, a write, a doctor, an artist, a lover, a friend, a brother, a son that gives texture to his character. It shows the great explanation of the Philippine history, the nationalism and heroism in a non-violent manner, though, there were times that the characters speak in Spanish language and I couldn’t understand it unless I will read the subtitles. I could also say that the other characters weren’t having any difficulties in reciting their Spanish lines. The actors’ dedication for the film is inevitable especially Cesar Montano who is very perfect for the role of Rizal. His values and great performance as the lead actor is impeccable and has a great impact on me as the audience of the said film. Also, the supporting casts like Jhong Hilario who played as Rizal’s servant, Jaime Fabregas as Rizal’s attorney did a great job on portraying their role fluently. They made it easy for me to understand the flow of the story. However, there are also negative comments that I must say about the movie. The plot...

...Rizal's third letter from Heidelberg: Germany, Thursday, 11 March 1886 MISS TRINIDAD RIZAL MY DEAR SISTER TRINING, Since I left our country, I have received only four or five lines written by your hand, one or two insignificant news about you and nothing more. I don't know how you are and I cannot imagine your person. When I left you, you were very small. Now within two months you are going to be 18 years and in four years I suppose that you have grown up and you are becoming a young lady. At your age, German women seem to be 20 or 24 years, as much for their faces as for their ways.The German woman is serious, studious, and diligent, and as their clothes do not have plenty of color, and generally they have only three or four, they do not pay much attention to their clothes nor to jewels. They dress their hair simply, which is thin, but beautiful in their childhood. They go everywhere walking so nimbly or faster than men, carrying their books, their baskets, without minding anyone and only their own business. As I said to Pangoy, they are home-loving and they study cooking with as much diligence as they do music and drawing. If our sister María had been educated in Germany, she would have been notable, because German women are active and somewhat masculine. They are not afraid of men. They are more concerned with the substance than with appearances. Until now I have not heard women quarreling, which in Madrid is the daily bread. It is a pity that there in...

Ust Inc.

...EXECUTIVE SUMMARY UST Inc. is a principal producer of moist smokeless tobacco products,   controlling roughly 77% of the overall market, and widely known for its conservative debt policy and high dividend payout. UST also has an exceptional financial performance as net sales has been growing at 11% compounded annual growth rate, and cash flows have been growing at 12% compounded annual growth rate for the past 10 years. However, UST’s board of directors approved a plan to borrow up to $1 billion over five years to accelerate its stock buyback program in December 1998. Although this debt policy benefited UST in term of additional tax shield and rise in stock market price, however, the debt would directly increase financial distress and weaken UST’s cash flow. This report is prepared to consider debt policy for assessing a leverage recapitalization for UST and evaluate effect of dividend payment from buyback policy. After carefully evaluation of available information and using finance literature and relevant course lectures to conduct financial methodologies, including Unlevered beta, Value of levered firm with Financial Distress, Weighted Average Cost of Capital Analysis for Capital Structure Choice, and Proforma, I recommend UST to implement its one billion dollars buyback program in a period of five years. OVERVIEW OF UST Over the years, UST has been named the most profitable company in America in 1998 by Dreman Asset Management as measured by return on equity, return...

..., Don Francisco advised Rizal to take up the preparatory course of “Metaphysics.” (Rizal terms the philosophical subjects he’s taking up then as “Metaphysics.”) But in the University of Santo Tomas that time, there was no such thing as a career of Metaphysics, neither a Faculty called “Philosophy and Letters.” The career of “Philosophy” was not offered that time because the Faculty of Philosophy then, even if not really closed, was not functioning. However, philosophical subjects were to be studied by all students. The philosophical subjects he enrolled were Cosmology, Metaphysics, Theodicy and History of Philosophy, constituted the Preparatory Course of Theology and Law. This fact that he enrolled such philosophical subjects means that he intended to either take Theology, Canon Law, or Civil Law. But obviously, Theology and Canon Law were no longer options for him since he was disillusioned to become a priest. So his father was then thinking of having a lawyer in the family. First Year in UST. Rizal, who was barely 16 years old that time, was an early enrolee for the School Year 1877-1878, for he is the second in the list of those who paid the matriculation fee of eight pesos for the first semester. Being a student of the University, he then had the privilege of being exempted from the polos y servicios or compulsory community labor required from all male of his age, and from paying the donativo de Zamboanga imposed on all taxpaying citizens that time.
