Known people - famous people news and biographies |. Kurt Cobain biography Each having a gun in the house equal to the Kurt Cobain, everyone knows how to read between the lines is doomed to have a gun in the house ... Kurt Cobain was born somewhere between the start of Apollo 1 and the flight to the United States daughter of Joseph Stalin - in February 1967. The Jews have not defeated Arabs, the Chinese didn't have hydrogen bomb blew up, and "Beatles" didn't release "Sergeant Pepper"-"the best album of all time"- all this happened in the first months of his life. Like all children, he certainly did not notice all these important world events in Grays Hospital lying next to his mother - Elizabeth Wendy Cobain, nineteen years of age and doing the same thing as thousands of other babies. Kurt was born in the midst of the middle of nowhere as the Americans say. "Center e. tion nothing " was located in the town of Aberdeen - and that's not even one of Aberdeen, in Scotland, but only a pale copy of his near Seattle. Speaking of Scotland - the Scottish roots of Cobain were, as well as the German, Irish and English. By 1967, when Kurt was born Wendy and Donald Leland had been together for about 2 years. Wendy Elizabeth worked as the teacher, the secretary, and sometimes as a waitress, Leland - mechanic in the workshop. Three years after the birth of Kurt, in 1970 he had a sister, Kim. So long until I was 9 years old, I was firmly convinced that I would become a rock star or an astronaut or president Kurt Cobain Relatives Kurt was very musical - his mother sang well, Aunt Mary Earle played guitar and with his uncle Kurt Chuck acted in country music ensemble. But, of course, all of them surpassed Delabert, Cobain's great-uncle, the famous Irish tenor, starring in "King of Jazz». In this kind of family background, and there was a passion for the music of Kurt. At four, he enjoyed singing, composing texts and trying to learn to play the guitar at Mary, but the venture failed. However, Kurt still lost in her rehearsals. I was incredibly happy child. I kept shouting and singing. Just could not stop in time. I was really happy Kurt Cobain As a child, Cobain was short-tempered and sensitive. The boy liked to listen to The Monkees and The Beatles, happy to draw - mostly Disney characters - Pluto, Donald Duck, or superheroes like Aquaman. At seven to singing and composing text, add live music - having come to grief with a guitar, Mary Earl gave him a drum kit "Mickey Mouse." Unlike Mary, Donald Kurt wanted to attach to the game of baseball, but to no avail - Cobain would later say that he always prefers the company of losers and cigarette society of those who are crazy about baseball. Apart from minor childhood afflictions Cobain was a happy childhood, and happiness - not last long. ... today I found my friends. In his own mind Kurt Cobain In 1975, Kurt's mother away from her husband. Wendy Leland said they did not pay attention to her and the family, all the time giving basketball and baseball. Despite the apparent reluctance Donald Cobain diverge. Kurt eight. His sister - five. The impression made by the parents to break Kurt enormous. He is ashamed of his mother and father and wants to have a normal family. With the new roommate mother, 22-year-old Michael Medak Kurt did not get along at once. It was then, according to his mother, he became sullen, angry and cynical. So do not make contact with Wendy's roommate, Kurt decides to move in with his father in Montesano. A wilderness is replaced by another, and teenage conflict with Michael conflict with his new wife of his father. Jenny Uebsti already had two children - James and Mindy, and in January 1979, gave birth to another - Chad. Living under the same roof with them Kurt seemed unbearable, and he moved again - this time to the grandparents, parents, Donald. A period when he lived with Iris and Leland, successive, where he had to live with relatives of his mother. In 14 years, Cobain throws drums and accepted a gift for Uncle Chuck - guitar, playing which his trains Warren Mason of «The Beachcombers». Speaking of uncles - my uncle Kurt Berl, beloved nephew committed suicide a year he moved to his father. A year later, the brother Berl Kenneth shot himself - also with a fatal outcome. Kurt returns home to his mother. Under the impact of all these events, it is very closed, preferring once again not to leave the house. And when still comes out, it finds a more than dubious entertainment - drawing graffiti lettering, often homosexual content. At the same time, he was closely associated with a couple of gay friends. It's hard to say what is there was more - homosexuality or protest. Soon, under pressure from the society of their paths diverge. His mother, Wendy married again in 1984. Her new chosen one, Pat O'Connor - docker and alcoholic. During one quarrel, and it breaks her arm, while the other, she drowns in a river of his arsenal. Kurt quickly hired two guys and pulls the trunks, and then drove them buys power amplifiers, to persuade them to Seller the money to take the "grass" with his drag-dealer. My name is Kurt, I sing and play guitar, but in general, I'm walking and talking a bacterial infection ... Kurt Cobain Learning to play the guitar passable, Cobain determined with style. After reading about the «Sex Pistols» in «Creem», Cobain comes on the idea to gather a punk band. As the sound «SP» Kurt knows - Aberdeen their records just do not get it. Cobain invents his version of punk - "a lot of yelling and three chords"and starts looking for something similar around. Melvins - band from Aberdeen, which attempts to combine punk with elements of hard rock, grunge anticipating future. it seems appropriate. It is in companies' melvinsov"Cobain closely converges with the Croatian emigrant Krist Novoselic. Soon Cobain collects first viable group - «Fecal Matter». Kurt became the vocalist and guitarist «Fecal Matter», Dale Crover lived on bass and Greg Hokanson knows drums. While Kurt deeper immersed in the music, scoring at all, his relationship with his mother deteriorated. Thus, the known incident that occurred when he brought home a girlfriend and tried to have sex with her in her room. Then Wendy rushed to him and threw both out of the house, do not forget to call girl prostitute. This was the first intimate experience Cobain. Not finished tenth grade he left school. Mother puts him a choice - away from home or job search, and Kurt - leaves. For a while he sleeps at friends, then in the backyards of their homes in the public library, and finally - under the bridge across the river Wishkah River. This life experience "white trash" later affected the work of Kurt, especially in his songs such as the «Something in the Way». He also gave the name of the first post-defunct «Fecal Matter» group Cobain - «Skid Row», poor streets of Los Angeles, whose name became a household word. I was looking for a name that would be beautiful or pleasant or sweet Kurt Cobain Once the collapse «Fecal Matter» Kurt walked with friends defunct demo teams, wanting to collect a new composition. After listening to "their" record Novoselic ... I forgot about it for a few months. And then suddenly I came to Cobain proposed to create a rock band. At first, they became the drummer Bob McFadden left the group after a month. «Skid Row», «Ted Ed Fred», «Bliss», «Pen Cap Chew», «Bliss Throad Oyster», «Windowpane» - the name of the newly formed teams change from an astronomical rate and basis of music make achievements «FM» . In parallel with the search for music, Cobain still forced to begin to look for jobs. In May 1986 a drunken Cobain climbed into someone's private property "taking" the cops. He is sentenced to 8 days in jail. Your right to. Nirvana Kurt Cobain By the winter of 1987, Kurt and Chris again changed drummer Aaron Burkhardt hiring. Soon he was replaced by Dale Crover, which are written with the participation of the first demo of the team. He was replaced by Dave Foster comes. In early 1988, a kaleidoscope of names finally vyschёlkivaet cherished «Nirvana». A few months later, in March, the guys give the first concert under the new name, and around May the permanent drummer - Chad Channing. In the same year the newly formed band released the first single «Love Buzz / Big Cheese» In June 1989, the debut album «Nirvana», published on the label «Sub Pop» and Produced by Jack Endino. Money for the record - 606 dollars and 17 cents lent Jason Everman - seasonal fisherman from Alaska and Channing buddy. The album is called «Bleach» - bleach. I've never craved neither fame nor anything like that. It just so happened ... Kurt Cobain In the wake of the success of "Bleach" Nirvana went to a great tour of the West Coast of the United States, performing in 26 cities. Their debut, combining the influence of punk and black metal, Black Sabbat, Led Zeppelin and The Melvins, liked the "sharks recording", including Geffen Records. The success cemented the tour, when the boys staged 36 concerts in just 42 days, having won a resounding success with the British public. Not without difficulty. Label strives to fit the music under the "grunge", Kurt extruding hard on this theme, and among the musicians themselves began strife, which resulted in the expulsion of Chad, claim a greater role in the creation of texts from the group. I love all - that's what is sad ... Kurt Cobain What is love for Cobain's hard to say. Shocking the audience, he passionately kissed a bassist, dressed in women's clothes and said that could be as feminine as he wants. He loved all - black, gay men, women and asked them haters not to come to his concerts. Kurt strutted across the stage in high heels, a bra and a crown, and said that he wanted to be gay, just to annoy the more homophobic. And then I met Courtney. This happened in 1989, their acquaintance was fleeting, but both said later that he felt sympathy for each other. In 1991, Love began to communicate with a new drummer Grohl, who introduced her to the circle of Kurt. Their relations have developed rapidly, and in 1992, a pregnant by Kurt Courtney married him. Cobain was happy. When I started taking heroin, I knew it would be so boring as smoking marijuana Kurt Cobain Along with a passion for Love, Cobain begins to experience and a passionate craving for heroin, which soon will be his "air". Inevitable problems grow after Nevermind - the most "positive" album Cobain, published in 1991. The album becomes a "multi-platinum"and Lithium, Smells Like Teen Spirit and Come As You Are - MTV-hits."Voice of a generation"Kurt shocked fallen down to"Nirvana" fame - because the new album it seemed corny, too poppy and smooth. In support of the tour «Nevermind» Chris Cobain and warmed themselves by shock doses of alcohol, smoking "grass" and anything can break the guitar. Grohl sit behind the drums and strictly warned Cobain, so he did not dare to jump on its installation, sipping Haggadah. Once "alkotura" in 1992 after the birth of Frances Cobain. in an interview with «Vanity Fair» Love he says in passing that pricked heroin while pregnant, not knowing what will happen to the child. But in an article that comes out later claimed that she was sitting on heroin in the last months of pregnancy. Against Love and Kurt started a campaign in the press, and then the court. The verdict is soft - just a regular drug tests for Kurt and Love. Shortly thereafter, Cobain began work on «In Utero», fend off pesky producers of sound in his vision of a new job. Deliberately rough, crude Albini-produced album, Cobain did not accept, in some detail, and it has already finished the Scott Little. Rumors about the conflict Cobain and label album DGC.V result though was a commercial, still not succeeded «Nevermind», but not left in the mainstream. It is better to be dead than cool Kurt Cobain At the beginning of 1994, "Nirvana" is touring Europe, and on March 1, after a concert in Munich Cobain ill with acute laryngitis and bronchitis. Part of the canceled concerts. March 4 Love is Kurt at the unconscious. According to the doctors, he pharmacological coma was caused by a "cocktail" of his prescribed Rohypnol and champagne. Cobain was evacuated after 20 hours. No traces of drugs in his blood there. March 18 between Kurt and Love comes quarrel. Love calls the police, telling the cops that Kurt de threatening to commit suicide. She's lying. Kurt still denies, saying that just wants to see his wife - because something and locked in his room. At this time, Courtney begins to spread rumors that their relationship is in the doldrums due to increased heroin addiction husband. It refutes guitarists warming "Nirvana" and Shelley Barber, claiming that in the last round, Kurt walked with a little water, without touching even to alcohol. March 20 under the pressure of Love Kurt re-sent to the center «Exodus» Rehabilitation. In a conversation with the doctor, he denies problems with heroin, although it shows a desire to get out of the hospital, "doing away with it». 1 April 1994 Kurt runs the center, jumping over the fence. In Los Angeles, he orders a ticket to Seattle and signed autographs, go home. 8 April 1994 electrician Gary Smith finds the body of Cobain in a greenhouse. His body is ugly - head torn up a shot in the mouth. In the hands of Cobain traces of injections, blood triple dose of heroin. Clearly no fingerprints on the trunk. Next very foggy suicide note written in red ink. It has no direct reference to his death, and the last line, supposedly converts to Love, perhaps not written by them. Love expresses itself detective Tom Grant, Kurt disappeared on April 1 but he later finds out that on April 2 Courtney and Kurt seen. It is also alarming indications confused Love, and its attempts to block the credit card Kurt fraudulently. The divorce process in which the share in the inheritance of Love Kurt could be reduced from 30 to 1 million is minimized. Profit after holders Cobain's death - 800 million. Dollars. Well, to hell with them, with the money. Let's talk about art. In one of the songs, "homosexual, pagan, and pot-bellied pig fucking junkie"wrote:"I am speechless, because I found God». A true - I found? Dmitry Melehovets and Valeria Berekchiyan

Shocking the audience, he passionately kissed a bassist, dressed in women's clothes and said that could be as feminine as he wants. He loved all - black, gay men, women and asked them haters not to come to his concerts. Kurt strutted across the stage in high heels, a bra and a crown, and said that he wanted to be gay, just to annoy the more homophobic. And then I met Courtney. This happened in 1989, their acquaintance was fleeting, but both said later that he felt sympathy for each other. In 1991, Love began to communicate with a new drummer Grohl, who introduced her to the circle of Kurt. Their relations have developed rapidly, and in 1992, a pregnant by Kurt Courtney married him. Cobain was happy. When I started taking heroin, I knew it would be so boring as smoking marijuana Kurt Cobain Along with a passion for Love, Cobain begins to experience and a passionate craving for heroin, which soon will be his "air". Inevitable problems grow after Nevermind - the most "positive" album Cobain, published in 1991. The album becomes a "multi-platinum"and Lithium, Smells Like Teen Spirit and Come As You Are - MTV-hits."Voice of a generation"Kurt shocked fallen down to"Nirvana" fame - because the new album it seemed corny, too poppy and smooth. In support of the tour «Nevermind» Chris Cobain and warmed themselves by shock doses of alcohol, smoking "grass" and anything can break the guitar. Grohl sit behind the drums and strictly warned Cobain, so he did not dare to jump on its installation, sipping Haggadah. Once "alkotura" in 1992 after the birth of Frances Cobain. in an interview with «Vanity Fair» Love he says in passing that pricked heroin while pregnant, not knowing what will happen to the child. But in an article that comes out later claimed that she was sitting on heroin in the last months of pregnancy. Against Love and Kurt started a campaign in the press, and then the court. The verdict is soft - just a regular drug tests for Kurt and Love. Shortly thereafter, Cobain began work on «In Utero», fend off pesky producers of sound in his vision of a new job. Deliberately rough, crude Albini-produced album, Cobain did not accept, in some detail, and it has already finished the Scott Little. Rumors about the conflict Cobain and label album DGC.V result though was a commercial, still not succeeded «Nevermind», but not left in the mainstream. It is better to be dead than cool Kurt Cobain At the beginning of 1994, "Nirvana" is touring Europe, and on March 1, after a concert in Munich Cobain ill with acute laryngitis and bronchitis. Part of the canceled concerts. March 4 Love is Kurt at the unconscious. According to the doctors, he pharmacological coma was caused by a "cocktail" of his prescribed Rohypnol and champagne. Cobain was evacuated after 20 hours. No traces of drugs in his blood there. March 18 between Kurt and Love comes quarrel. Love calls the police, telling the cops that Kurt de threatening to commit suicide. She's lying. Kurt still denies, saying that just wants to see his wife - because something and locked in his room. At this time, Courtney begins to spread rumors that their relationship is in the doldrums due to increased heroin addiction husband. It refutes guitarists warming "Nirvana" and Shelley Barber, claiming that in the last round, Kurt walked with a little water, without touching even to alcohol. March 20 under the pressure of Love Kurt re-sent to the center «Exodus» Rehabilitation. In a conversation with the doctor, he denies problems with heroin, although it shows a desire to get out of the hospital, "doing away with it». 1 April 1994 Kurt runs the center, jumping over the fence. In Los Angeles, he orders a ticket to Seattle and signed autographs, go home. 8 April 1994 electrician Gary Smith finds the body of Cobain in a greenhouse. His body is ugly - head torn up a shot in the mouth. In the hands of Cobain traces of injections, blood triple dose of heroin. Clearly no fingerprints on the trunk. Next very foggy suicide note written in red ink. It has no direct reference to his death, and the last line, supposedly converts to Love, perhaps not written by them. Love expresses itself detective Tom Grant, Kurt disappeared on April 1 but he later finds out that on April 2 Courtney and Kurt seen. It is also alarming indications confused Love, and its attempts to block the credit card Kurt fraudulently. The divorce process in which the share in the inheritance of Love Kurt could be reduced from 30 to 1 million is minimized. Profit after holders Cobain's death - 800 million. Dollars. Well, to hell with them, with the money. Let's talk about art. In one of the songs, "homosexual, pagan, and pot-bellied pig fucking junkie"wrote:"I am speechless, because I found God».

Shaw Sports | Opinion pieces, interviews and podcasts...a better way to discuss sports & entertainment. The Denver Nuggets performed far better than anyone ever thought they would this season, and perhaps they even outdid their own expectations as a young and growing team. After barely missing the playoffs last year, the Nuggets' story of inconsistency was frustrating as the team teetered on the edge of finding their groove. Well, find their groove they did, and the Nuggets firmly held the 2nd place slot in the Western Conference practically the entire season leaving many wondering how they grew up so quickly. As we all know, Denver would go on to win the first round of the playoffs against the San Antonio Spurs in 7 games, and would ultimately lose to the Portland Trail Blazers in game 7 of the second round. Much of Denver's recent success has come via budding star Nikola Jokic. A late-second round pick in the 2014 draft, Jokic wasn't much in the way of a flashy grab for Denver, but over time his star began to shine brighter and brighter as he grew in skill and maturity. Just a couple of short years ago, Jokic emerged as one of the most skilled passing players in the league, and certainly one of the best passing big men around. Fast forward to the end of the 2018-2019 season, and Nuggets' President of Basketball Operations, Tim Connelly, is being heralded as a regular genius. Connelly has taken the Nuggets through a very dark time in the team's history since joining the team in 2013, and he's brought them out shining more brightly than they have in over a decade. He's snagged key players like Gary Harris, Jamal Murray, and even worked to bring Denver the first star they had seen in a long time with the Paul Millsap mega-deal. Sure, he's made his mistakes like the "bizarre" NBA draft that took place in 2017 where the Nuggets traded down in the draft missing out on star Donovan Mitchell in the process, but overall Connelly's contribution to Denver has been very positive. Naturally, a President who has succeeded in building an incredible NBA franchise would garner some attention across the league. So it comes as no surprise that Connelly has agreed to take a meeting with the Washington Wizards this week to discuss a possible position with their team. Connelly has long been a target for the Wizards where he got his NBA start as an assistant video coordinator in 1999. He remained with the organization for 11 years working his way up through the ranks before leaving in 2010 to go work for the New Orleans Pelicans. Connelly is also originally from the West Baltimore area so the East Coast is home for him. However, he's currently under contract with the Nuggets, and it's been reported that he is not going to take leaving the Nuggets' franchise lightly. If Washington really wants him back, they will have to pay dearly for him. It's been speculated that Connelly won't leave Denver for a deal less than $4 million annually for a contract term of 5 years. Business is business, and Connelly wouldn't be the respected business-savvy man he is if he didn't hear the Wizards out on their offer, but it would be a shame to see him leave Denver at this point in their journey. There's something to be said for building something special and long-lasting, and while Denver is still working toward a title, there's still plenty of work to be done. How tragic would it be for Connelly to leave now and potentially miss out on staying with the team as they won a title? Although my idealistic tendencies make me lean toward a world where the Nuggets and Connelly win the title in a fairy tale ending, I understand that's not always how real-life goes. Connelly has a responsibility to himself and his family to continue to grow and thrive in his career, and he shouldn't hold himself back for fear of missing out. If he does move on, I'll be truly disappointed, but I think that may leave room for another to come and complete the perfect Colorado basketball story. That person is Chauncey Billups. Billups is a Colorado native who played for the University of Colorado before being selected by the Boston Celtics as the third pick in the first round of the 1997 NBA draft. Billups, known as Mr. Big Shot, played for the Nuggets for a total of 5 seasons over the course of his 20-year NBA career including one championship title with the Detroit Pistons. Billups has been a hot commodity to work in the front office for teams across the league, and with Connelly engaging in conversations of moving on, Billups' name has been brought up a few times. While he played in Denver he was the darling of the team. Nuggets fans ate up his hometown hero presence, and each time he comes back to Pepsi Center, he's welcomed with open arms. Billups has stated that his heart will always be with the Pistons, but he's a Colorado native first and foremost. Perhaps he could come back home to Denver and help them bring in their first title. I can't think of a more romantic ending to their journey. Ideally, Connelly will turn down any offer he gets from Washington to stick it out with the Nuggets. I think he owes it to himself and the team to see things through. However, if he does leave, the team is at a point where they can keep growing without him and hopefully build on what he started. We will likely hear more about this in the coming week.

TxtMania |. The Philippines, a group of over 7,000 islands with combined land area encompassing 300,000 square kilometres, grew into a nation under more than three centuries of Spanish conquest and 42 years of American rule. It is the first country outside the New World that closely witnessed the United States' rise to power following the 1898 Spanish-American War. Situated 800 kilometres southeast of mainland Asia, the archipelago, named after King Philip II of Spain, was discovered in 1521 by Ferdinand Magellan, the same explorer who had discovered the Pacific Ocean in search of the so-called "Spice Islands" and is now widely considered the first navigator to have cruised around the planet. Ironically, the Filipinos, after having been subdued for centuries by foreign colonizers as a result of Magellan's voyage, would emerge as the best seafarers in the world, manning a third of all international vessels today. Some 7.8 million overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) and Filipino migrants would help rebuild cities in many countries and bring back over US$10 billion in annual remittances to their families in the Philippines. The country's geographical location and long exposure to foreign influences has placed the Philippines on a unique cultural base in Asia. It is now the only predominantly Catholic country in the region, with 70 million out of its total population of 85 million (as of 2005) confessing to be Catholic. There are also large numbers of Protestants and Born-Again Christians in the country while the Muslim population is concentrated in southern Mindanao. Early Trade The first inhabitants of the Philippines were the Negritos who traveled from mainland Asia over a land bridge that is now underwater. Migrants from other Southeast Asian countries such as Indonesia and Malaysia later followed and established a Malayan culture that flourished before the Spaniards came. Chinese and Arab merchants helped establish markets at the community level. A sultanate system, first established in the southern island of Sulu in the 14th century, is believed to have reached the islands of Luzon and Visayas, giving way to the rise of the Islamic faith. The Spaniards would later drive the Muslims to the south and establish Catholicism as the main religion in the north and central parts of the country. Local villages, known as barangay, traded agricultural and fishery products with each other. The Igorot tribe in Northern Luzon carved the marvellous Banaue Rice Terraces from the mountains, a proof of their advanced agriculture technology. Communities near the shore exchanged goods with Chinese and Arab merchants, who came aboard large ships. These communities traded slaves, gold, beeswax, betel nuts, pearls, and shells for porcelain, silk, iron, tin and semi-precious stones. The Philippine islands were a part of an extensive trade route used by Chinese merchants as early as the 10th century. By the time Magellan arrived in the islands, regular trade and cultural contact between Chinese traders and local chieftains were firmly instituted. Many Chinese merchants settled in the country and shared their crafts with the natives. Some historians claim that an Italian Franciscan priest, named Father Odorico, was actually the first European to have reached the Philippines in 1324 when his ship bound for China took refuge from a storm in Bolinao Island in northern part of Luzon. Aside from the Banaue Rice Terraces in the Cordillera Mountains, early settlers did not leave any giant monument, and this is what makes conservative historians doubt the existence of the rich kingdoms in the country hundreds of years ago. However, it cannot be denied that early Filipinos were learned individuals who expressed their beliefs and sentiments in rich languages. According to the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA), there are actually 78 language groupings and over 500 dialects in the Philippines. Feudal Society Magellan, who claimed the archipelago for Spain in 1521, died in a battle with a group of local warriors led by Lapu Lapu at Mactan Island. It was Ruy Lopez de Villalobos, in the fourth Spanish expedition, who named the territory as Filipinas after the heir to the Spanish throne in 1543. In 1565, Miguel Lopez de Legaspi led an expedition to colonize the islands and by 1571, most parts of the archipelago came under Spanish rule. The Spaniards established the colonial government first in Cebu in 1565 and then in Manila in 1571. Historians claim that University of San Carlos in Cebu and University of Sto. Tomas in Manila are the oldest universities teaching European type of education in Asia. Jesuit and Dominican priests established the two institutions. Under Spanish rule, Catholicism became the dominant religion. Catholic friars not only lorded over the congregations; they enjoyed vast political and economic influence, which they eventually used to repress Filipino peasants' uprisings in the largely feudal Philippine society at that time. The Spaniards also quelled a number of rebellions instigated by the Chinese migrants. The friars distributed lands to Spanish families, who later comprised the landowning class. To perpetuate their economic interests, this class would also rise to become the political elite that would remain in power to this day. This gave way to the hacienda system in the Philippines, where cacique or landowners managed large tracts of lands tilled by peasant workers. Under the system, farmers were supposed to receive half of the harvest, but they usually ended up with much less because they had to pay for large interests on debt incurred from the cacique. This would be later corrected with a system of land reform, which, however, remains to be fully implemented to this day. Galleon Trade The Manila-Acapulco galleon trade became the major trading system between Asia and the Americas for nearly two centuries. Manila became a transhipment point of American silver to China. It was through this trade that the first Chinese silk and porcelain reached the shores of the New World. There were unverified claims that Filipinos helped build the city of Los Angeles in America. The Chinese and Filipinos would later become the two largest Asian migrant groups in the United States. Coconut became the country's top agricultural product, because of Spain's huge need for charcoaled coconut shells used for the caulking of the galleons. In 1642, the colonial government issued an edict requiring each Filipino to plant 200 coconut trees all over the country. By 1910, coconut exports would account for a fifth of total Philippine exports and to this day, coconut oil remains the country's top agricultural shipment. The Galleon Trade lasted for about 200 years until 1815. It is during this period that rice and tropical fruits from the Philippines such as mango and banana made their way to Latin America. Beginning 1750, Spanish priests encouraged the development of plantations to grow abaca (hemp), tobacco, coffee and sugar. Sugar barons from the Visayas would later emerge as among the richest clans in the country. From 1762 to 1764, the British briefly captured Manila during the Seven Years War. The treaty of Paris ended the British occupation and returned the colony to the hands of their original colonial masters. Plantation Crops In 1781, the Spanish governor established the tobacco monopoly in the Philippines, which would become a major source of revenue for the colonial government. From 1820 to 1870, the Philippines would be transformed to an agricultural export economy. Located on the oceanic trading routes connecting Asia to other parts of the world, the Philippines became a transhipment point of merchandise goods from all over Southeast Asia on their way to Europe. The Philippines exported plantation crops such as sugar, abaca, other fibres, tobacco, coffee, and coconut products to China, Spain, United States, United Kingdom and British East Indies. In return, it imported textiles and rice. Historians claim that Spain administered the Philippine affairs through Mexico. Spanish administrators in the country were actually reporting to the Viceroyalty of Mexico. After Mexico gained its independence from Spain in 1821, Madrid directly governed its only Asian colony and even allowed rich Filipinos to study in Europe. The Spanish rule gave way to the rise of a small but highly powerful elite class, which to this day, controls most of the Philippine economy. The elite families, which own large plantations, were able to send their children to Europe for education. Foreign Investors Investors from Spain, Germany, Britain and other European countries laid the groundwork for utility companies in steam navigation, cable, telegraphy, railroads and electricity in the country. They also invested heavily in rice and sugar milling, textile and banking. The local elite developed the brewing industry, which would become one of the most profitable sectors in the economy. Although the educated Filipinos who studied in Europe shunned the use of force to topple the colonial government, their writings provoked nationalist sentiments among young men, who eventually formed a revolutionary movement against Spain. In 1896, the war between Spanish and Filipino soldiers escalated following the death of novelist Jose Rizal and rebel leader Andres Bonifacio. Emilio Aguinaldo, the new leader of the revolutionary forces, forged a pact with US Commodore George Dewey in Hong Kong to defeat the Spanish army. American Colony The Americans entered the scene because of its conflict with Spain over Cuba. With the outbreak of the Spanish-American war in the Pacific, the Philippines had to be taken by the US, lest other European countries such as Britain, France and Germany would fight for their next Southeast Asian colony. On June 12, 1898, Aguinaldo, first backed by American forces, declared the independence of Kawit, Cavite, the seat of the revolutionary Filipino government at that time, from Spanish rule. The Americans took possession of Manila on August 13, 1898. While armed clashes with Spanish forces continued in other parts of the country, the Americans and the Spaniards were negotiating for the purchase of the Philippines for US$20 million. In the Treaty of Paris in 1898, Spain ceded the Philippines, Cuba, Puerto Rico, and Guam to the US. Filipinos felt insulted at the fact that their country has been passed from one colonial master to another for only US$20 million. When the US, which had not conquered any country before, made known its intention to succeed Spain as the next colonizer of the Philippines, Aguinaldo and his men waged a revolutionary resistance that ended with his capture in March 1901. The American soldiers easily subdued the remaining factions of rebellion with the help of their powerful weapons and their divide-and-conquer tactic. As an archipelago of 7,000 islands, the Philippines is home to different ethnic groups which do not speak the same language. The national government's attempt to declare Tagalog (spoken in Central and Southern Luzon including Metro Manila) as the national language would not easily win the support of other regions. The Philippine-American war took the lives of 4,234 American and 16,000 Filipino soldiers. The death toll was much higher on the civilian population, with as high as 200,000 casualties. Although local resistance persisted until 1903, the US ended its military rule on July 4, 1901. American Way Under American civilian rule, the Philippines was introduced to US-type of education, Protestant religion, and later to the concept of democracy. Placed under US control were most parts of the country, except in the southern portion of Mindanao where Muslim rebels held strong resistance. William Howard Taft, the 27th US president, was the first American Civil Governor in the Philippines. Taft was praised for establishing a civil service system, creating a national legislature, suppressing prices, upgrading health standards, and sponsoring land reform and road building in the country. In 1907, the First Philippine Assembly composed of educated and rich Filipinos with vast landholdings. Manuel L. Quezon, who represented the Philippines in the US Congress, lobbied for the passage of the Jones Law, which in 1916 abolished the Philippine Assembly to give way for a bicameral legislature made up of the Senate and the House of Representatives. With the passage of the Tydings-McDuffie Act in 1934, Filipinos had their first taste of self-rule through the Philippine Commonwealth, a transitional government designed to prepare the Filipinos over a ten-year period for independence. By 1935, the Commonwealth was in place with Quezon as its first president. The Philippines also approved a new constitution in the same year. The United States is credited for helping establish the Republic of the Philippines, the first democratic government in Asia. Economically, the Philippines was ahead of its Asian neighbours, who were still subjects of European colonial powers before the war. Japanese Invasion In December 1941, the Japanese Imperial Army invaded the Philippines and drove the Commonwealth Government from Manila. While Quezon continued to head the government-in-exile until his death in New York in August 1944, the Japanese forces handpicked Jose P. Laurel, a graduate of Yale University and Tokyo International University, to head a new government under their control. The Philippines was dragged into the war because of Japan's military ambition to become the dominant force in Asia and the Pacific. Japan wanted to be the leader of an economic zone in East Asia, which would be the source of its raw materials. The US presence in the Philippines, known for its strategic location in Southeast Asia, was the largest threat to the Japanese forces, following the destruction of the American Pacific fleet at Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. While the American forces were regrouping in the United States, Filipino soldiers formed a guerrilla organization called Hukbalahap (People's Anti-Japanese Army). Some 30,000 guerrillas at that time engaged the Japanese army in intermittent clashes. The Hukbalahap would later adopt the communist ideology and rule in the countryside. Meanwhile, Sergio Osmeña replaced Quezon as the head of the government-in-exile and joined General Douglas MacArthur in the liberation of Manila. General MacArthur returned to the Philippines via the island province of Leyte, along with 174,000 army and navy servicemen on October 20, 1944. The liberation of Manila took almost 20 days from February 3 to 23, 1945 and the fierce battle destroyed much of the city, with its ruins now often compared to the ruins of Warsaw, Poland in Europe. The Japanese army, however, continued to fight in the provinces, until September 2, 1945 when General Yamashita, the Tiger of Malaya who was believed to have hidden vast amount of treasures during the war, surrendered in Baguio City. It is estimated that the battle of Manila cost the lives of 1 million Filipinos, 300,000 Japanese and 60,000 Americans. The intensity of the US-Japan war would force the former to drop an atomic bomb in Hiroshima on August 6, 1945 and in Nagasaki three days later. US Bases By February 1945, Osmeña restored the Commonwealth in the Philippines but it was only on July 4, 1946 that the US granted the Philippines its independence, coinciding with the celebration of the Independence Day in America. However, US military bases would remain in the country for the next 45 years. On March 14, 1947, Manila and Washington signed the Treaty of General Relation, which provided the US to construct military bases for a lease period of 99 years. In 1959, the agreement was amended to shorten the lease period until 1991, after which both sides were to renegotiate the contract. When the US sought a ten-year extension of the lease period in 1991, the Philippine Senate, led by Senate President Jovito Salonga, rejected the proposal in a historic casting of vote on September 16, ending US military bases in the country. With newfound freedom in 1946, Filipinos elected Manuel A. Roxas, leader of the Liberal Party and one of the seven members of the Constitutional Convention who drafted the 1935 Constitution, as the first president of the independent republic in April 1946. His presidency was focused on rebuilding the cities and municipalities torn by the war, redistributing lands as wealthy landowners returned to reclaim their estates, and confronting the Hukbalahap, which by this time was tagged as a socialist-communist organization. The economy grew at a rapid pace, immediately after the war. Special Treatment Close economic ties between Manila and Washington continued after the war on the back of agreements providing for preferential tariffs for American exports and special treatment for US investors in the Philippines. In the 1946 Philippine Trade Act, the Americans were granted duty-free access to the Philippine market and special rights to exploit the country's natural resources. Because of the Trade Act, the Philippines suffered a huge trade deficit with the influx of American imports. In 1949, the Philippine government was forced to impose import controls, after getting the consent of Washington. Roxas' two-year presidency ended with his death, following a heart attack while delivering a speech at Clark Air Force Base in Pampanga province in April 1948. Vice president Elpidio Quirino succeeded Roxas as president and defeated Jose P. Laurel to keep his post in the 1949 presidential race. It was during Quirino's term that the Minimum Wage Law was enacted and the Central Bank was established to stabilize the peso and consumer prices. The country's gross national product grew by an average of 7.7 percent annually in the early 1960s, on the back of the double-digit increase in the manufacturing sector. In the 1953 presidential election, Ramon Magsaysay, who had served as defense secretary under the Quirino administration, won by a landslide. The charismatic Magsaysay initiated peace talks with the Hukbalahap, which would later evolve into a communist organization. He became popular for opening the gates of Malacanang Palace to ordinary people. He died in a plane crash on Mount Manunggal in Cebu in March 1957, which to this day remains a mystery to many Filipinos. While the standard of living in the Philippines was below that of the Western World, the country was often cited as the second richest economy in Asia, after Japan in the 1960s. However, ill-advised economic policies, poor governance and rapid population growth in the country would allow other Asian economies such as Korea, Taiwan, Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Thailand and China not only to catch up with but to leave the Philippines behind in the race towards industrialization. Filipino First Vice President Carlos P. Garcia assumed the country's top government post following the death of Magsaysay. Garcia was known for his First Filipino Policy and Austerity Program, which put the interests of Filipinos ahead those of foreigners. Under his austerity measures, he encouraged temperate spending, which resulted in less imports and more exports. His nationalist policies, however, perpetuated the business interests of the ruling elite in the country and did not encourage local businesses to be competitive. Garcia lost to his vice-president in the 1961 presidential poll. Protectionist policies allowed local manufacturers to control the economy from 1949 to 1962, discouraging them from becoming competitive. Diosdado Macapagal, father of incumbent President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, was the president from 1961 to 1965. Before he became president, he authored the land reform program as a legislator and was vice-president to Garcia. As president, Macapagal began a five-year socio-economic program by removing imports control and liberalizing foreign exchange. It was Macapagal who declared June 12 as the national Independence Day. In 1962, the Macapagal administration began devaluing the peso by half to around 3.90 to the US dollar. Macapagal initiated a shift in investments from the light industries to chemicals, steel and industrial equipment. He was also one of the proponents of the MAPHILINDO, a trade bloc of three South East Asian countries – the Philippines, Malaysia, Indonesia. This bloc later expanded to what is now the Association of the Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN). By 1965, foreign capital was present in nearly a third of the country's capital stock. Martial Law Ferdinand Marcos, the Senate president, defeated Macapagal in the presidential election to become the country's tenth president in November 1965. A close ally of the United States, Marcos launched military campaigns against the insurgents including the communist Hukbalahap and Moro rebels in Mindanao. In August 1967, Manila hosted a summit that led to the creation of the ASEAN. With his reelection in 1969, Marcos had to contend with worsening civil strife. An ideologist named Jose Ma. Sison founded the Communist Party of the Philippines on December 26, 1968. It was during the same year that University of the Philippines Nur Misuari founded the Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF), the armed wing of Islamic resistance movement. In June 1971, the government convened the Constitutional Convention to amend the Constitution. Ironically, Marcos declared Martial Law on September 21, 1972, following a series of bombings in Metro Manila, He abolished Congress, curtailed freedom of the press, imposed curfews, ordered the arrest of his political enemies, prohibited labour unions, and controlled the economy with the help of his cronies. Although his wife Imelda was credited for building some of the country's finest monuments, she was criticized for personal extravagance, a form of which was maintaining a collection of 3,000 pairs of shoes. Green Revolution The so-called green revolution in the early 1970s, which introduced new farming technologies, enabled the Philippines to export rice to its neighbours. The International Rice Research Institute was established in Los Banos town, Laguna province where Thai, Vietnamese and other Asian researchers trained to develop their own rice production. Thailand would later become the world's largest rice exporter and the Philippines one of the largest rice importers. With the introduction of new farming technologies, the Philippines became heavily dependent on importer fertilizers, which are mostly fuel-based. The increase in world crude oil prices also pushed prices of fertilizers, to the detriment of Filipino farmers trying to adopt the modern technologies. Chinese Tycoons On June 9, 1975, the Marcos administration signed a joint communiqué with Communist China to restore official diplomatic relations. The Communiqué recognized that "there is but one China, of which Taiwan is an integral part. In return, China vowed not to interfere in the internal affairs of the Philippines and refrained from providing any substantial support to the Communist Party of the Philippines, the largest insurgent group in the country. The largest success story in the Philippines actually involved Chinese merchants who left China in pursuit of business opportunities abroad. Unlike rich American investors, Chinese migrants came to the Philippines with little money but large determination that the country's democratic society would help them become rich. True enough, they found goldmine in the Philippines. Today, the richest individuals in the Philippines have Chinese names, including billionaires such as Lucio Tan, Henry Sy, John Gokongwei, and George Ty. Together, they are the largest group of investors in the Philippines and control most of the largest companies in the country. Overseas Workers Under Martial Law, one man other than Marcos would singularly define labour relations in the Philippines and the role of the Filipino workers in the world. Labour Minister Blas Ople, a former journalist, authored the Labor Code on November 1, 1974 and launched the overseas employment program in 1976, which would send young and talented Filipinos who could not find work at home to other countries for dollar-earning jobs. Ople obtained the permission of Marcos to deploy thousands of Filipino workers overseas to meet the growing need of Saudi Arabia, Iran, Iraq and the United Arab Emirates for skilled workers and the rising demand for Filipino seamen in flag-of-convenience vessels. Hesitant at first, Marcos later conceded to the proposal, if only to tame the growing militancy building among the hearts of the young and intelligent Filipinos who could not find job opportunities in their own land. The Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) and the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) were established to intensify recruitment of Filipino workers. This would make the Philippines the third largest destination of dollar remittances in the world, next to the more populous countries of India and Mexico. The Marcos administration also tried to court foreign investors, by committing guarantees against nationalization and imposing restrictions on trade-union activity. However, the blatant record of human rights abuses by the military under his administration was a big turnoff among foreigners. Under Martial law, the military and the police killed, abused, or arrested at least 10,000 Filipinos, including some of the brightest students and intellectuals. Many had disappeared without a trace. While Marcos lifted martial law on January 17, 1981 in time for the visit of Pope John Paul II to Manila in February, he maintained most of his powers as a dictator. Benigno Aquino, an opposition senator living in asylum in the US, decided to return to Manila in 1983. His death, from assassins' bullets at the tarmac of the Manila International Airport, sparked adverse sentiments against the Marcos administration. Bankruptcy As the economy stagnated under the Marcos administration because of a mix of bad economic policies, corruption and uncontrolled population growth, the government had to resort to foreign borrowing to finance the fiscal deficit. In October 1983, the Central Bank notified its creditors about its plan to default payment on debt amounting to US$24.6 billion. With the growing loss of confidence by the business community, the peso depreciated by as much as 21 percent in 1983. The gross domestic product shrank by 6.8 percent in 1984 and by 3.8 percent in 1985. Emboldened by Marcos' dipping popularity, the opposition gathered around Aquino's widow, Corazon Cojuangco Aquino, who would later challenge Marcos in the 1986 snap presidential election. When Batasang Pambansa (National Assembly) declared Marcos the winner amid allegations of widespread electoral fraud, protesters, buoyed by Manila archbishop Jaime Cardinal Sin, trooped to the streets. Following the defection of Defense Minister Juan Ponce Enrile and Armed Forces vice chief Fidel Ramos from Marcos, protesters began converging along EDSA near Ortigas Avenue, which would culminate in the ouster of Marcos from Malacanang Palace on February 25, 1986. The media called the bloodless uprising as the 1986 EDSA People Power Revolution - something that political groups would later thought could be replicated time and again. Democratic Rule After Marcos, his family and his cronies fled from the Philippines, Aquino became president, organized a new government, freed the political prisoners and tried to restore democratic rule in the country. In February 1987, her government approved a new Constitution, which would later be subjected to heated debates over its restrictive provisions on foreign participation in the economy. The 1987 Constitution restored the presidential system of government with a bicameral legislature composed of the Senate and the House of Representatives and an independent judiciary headed by the Supreme Court chief justice. To avoid a replication of Marcos' excesses, the Constitution limited the president's stay in office to one six-year term. It also created the autonomous regions of Muslim Mindanao and Cordillera and put agrarian reform as the cornerstone of the government's plan for social transformation. A renegade faction in the Philippine military launched a series of coup attempts against the Aquino presidency. Perception of political instability dampened economic activities and refrained the economy from matching the large strides taken by its Asian neighbors in the 1980s and 1990s. By this time, Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand have overtaken the Philippines in the race towards industrialization. The Arroyo administration, while taking pride of having restored democracy, failed to bring the economy on track towards industrialization, and one of the factors singled out was the president's political inexperience and lack of consistency in pushing for economic reforms. In the 1992 presidential election, Aquino endorsed the candidacy of her chosen successor – Defense Secretary Fidel Ramos. In June 1991, Mount Pinatubo's powerful eruption sent tons of ashes around the planet's atmosphere. Subsequent lava/lahar flow buried several towns in Central Luzon and jolted the economy. The natural tragedy also forced American soldiers at Clark Field and Subic Bay to withdraw from their bases earlier than stipulated. The US turned over to the Philippine government the two bases with total assets amounting to US$1.3 billion. The Philippine government later transformed the two bases into special economic zones. Liberalisation In 1992, Fidel Ramos was elected President. He began his term amid an energy crisis, which plunged the country literally into darkness. This he was able to resolve by inviting foreign investors to take part in the so-called build-operate-transfer (BOT) scheme, where they would serve as independent power producers (IPPs) enjoying a lot of incentives and guaranteed market. While it brought light to Filipino households, the scheme would later translate to high electricity rates. In 1995, the Ramos administration also had to contend with a rice shortage, as a result of low agricultural production and poorly managed importation program. Since then, the government has authorised the National Food Authority (NFA) to import rice at will in order to prepare for any shortage in domestic stock. The Ramos presidency was also responsible for economic reforms such as privatisation of government assets, trade and banking liberalisation and deregulation, which would push annual trade growth at double-digit levels and draw in large-ticket foreign investments. By 1996, the Philippines was described as a newly industrialising economy along with the likes of Thailand and Malaysia. It was also under the Ramos presidency that communism was legalised, and some leftist organisations would later join Congress as partylist groups. The government and the Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF) headed by Nur Misuari would sign a peace agreement that would establish a peace zone in southern Philippines. However, other militant rebel groups such as the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) and Abu Sayyaf would continue waging a war against the government for a Islamic state in the south. What Ramos failed to accomplish is the amendment to the 1987 Constitution to remove the restriction on foreign ownership of land and public utilities, which limits maximum ownership to 40 percent. The opposition party accused him of trying to tinker with the charter to remove the six-year term limit of the president and in the process perpetuate his stay in power. In the end, he had to give up such attempt under the weight of public opinion. Financial Crisis With the outbreak of the Asian financial crisis, the Philippine economy contracted by 0.6 percent in 1998, the same year Joseph Estrada, a popular politician with links to the movie industry, became president. The economy actually grew although at a slower pace at 3.4 percent in 1999 and at 4 percent in 2000 even as the inflation and interest rates began to decline. In comparison, growth reached 5.2 percent under the Ramos presidency in 1997. While Estrada got the backing of Filipino-Chinese businessmen by reducing the problem of kidnapping, he did not get the same support from other "elite" businessmen. Despite appointing top economists, Estrada, a former college dropout, could not convince the "high society" that he could resolve the country's economic woes. Ironically, what brought down the Estrada administration was not his economic policies, seen by many as not substantially different from those of Ramos, but the perception of wide corruption in his administration. In October 2000, a former ally implicated Estrada in illegal gambling payoffs and kickbacks. Reports that he has many wives housed in different mansions also got Estrada indifferent treatment from the Church, which was a force behind the 1986 People's Power Revolution. EDSA 2 In December 2000, the House of Representatives impeached Estrada. The subsequent impeachment trial at the Senate was aborted when senators from the opposition party walked out of the courtroom, triggering street demonstrations reminiscent of the 1986 revolt. Within hours after the walkout, the crowd at EDSA grew into millions of anti-Estrada protesters. When political and military leaders withdrew their support from Estrada, Supreme Court Chief Justice Hilario Davide swore Vice President Gloria Mapacagal Arroyo as the next president on January 20, 2001. Arroyo, a daughter of former President Diosdado Macapagal, came to Malacanang with a promise to clean the government of corrupt officials and bring down the number of poor Filipinos, which represents a third of the total population. In her first year in office, she faced numerous challenges starting with the May 1 rebellion, instigated by the Estrada camp to regain the presidency. The rebellion proved futile, as the highly politicised military and the police remained loyal to Arroyo. She also had to contend with Muslim extremists, who began to target cities in their attacks. Following the terrorist attacks in the US on September 11, 2001, the Philippines was one of the first countries to express support for a US-led international campaign against terrorism. On the economic front, Congress passed the liberalisation of the retail trade sector and the Electric Power Industry Reform Act of 2001, which aims to privatise the state-owned National Power Corporation. The Arroyo administration also promoted business process outsourcing (BPO), information technology, tourism, and mining as key investment areas for foreign companies. Trade with other Asian countries was also given importance in view of the declining trade volume with the United States. Telecommunications One particular industry, which has led economic growth since 2000 is telecommunications, although this proved to be a bane for other industries as Filipinos cut their expenditures on other items to buy mobile phones and pay for monthly network services. By 2005, it is estimated that half of the 85 million Filipinos would have mobile phones, a high penetration rate for a developing market. Because of the global economic slump following the September 11 attacks, the GDP grew by merely 1.8 percent in 2001. Growth reached 4.3 percent in 2002 and 4.7 percent in 2003 even as the Arroyo administration confronted communist and Islamic insurgency problems and a shocking military coup in July 2003. After surviving the coup, Arroyo won the May 2004 presidential election over Estrada's close friend and popular actor Fernando Poe Jr. Economic growth reached 6.1 percent in 2004, the highest in 15 years, although this was negated by high inflation and uncontrolled unemployment rates which were more felt by the poor. Fiscal Deficit Pressed by economists to narrow the burgeoning fiscal deficit, President Arroyo urged Congress to pass a package of tax reform measures aimed at achieving a balanced budget by the end of her term in 2010. Because of a long history of budget deficits, the public debt hit more than 130 percent of the GDP in 2003 and has been rising since then. Different sectors, however, criticised the administration for passing a heavier burden of taxation on the people at a time crude oil prices were hovering at historic high levels and pushing prices of goods and services beyond the capacity of ordinary consumers. By the second half of 2005, there were signs that the fiscal deficit was narrowing, even with the delay in the implementation of the Expanded Value Added Tax (EVAT) law, which raised by 2 percentage points the tax rate on consumer products and services to 12 percent and by 3 percentage points the corporate income tax to 35 percent. The new EVAT law, which was expanded to cover fuel and electricity, took effect on November 1, 2005. New Constitution As the popularity of President Arroyo dipped to the lowest level amid allegations that she bought her way to the presidency in the 2004 presidential elections, she was given an option to correct the loopholes in the political system by amending the 1987 Constitution. She formed a Consultative Commission to recommend charter amendments focusing on lifting all restrictions to foreign investments and paving the way for a shift in the form of government from a presidential, central system into a parliamentary, federal system. Posted by Text Mates at 4:16 PM 0 comments Labels: Economy, History, National, Social Filipino Inventions Solar powered Balut maker The College of Engineering and Agro-Industrial Technology at the University of the Philippines-Los Banos has invented a solar "balut" maker. Engineer Fernando Paras Jr. said the machine, which covers an area of five square meters, is actually an incubator that can process duck eggs into embryonated eggs or balut for 15 to 17 days. Traditionally, balut makers in Pateros have been using electricity for incubation. The new invention is a two-way solar-powered system, with the solar water heater serving as the primary heat source while the photovoltaic cells serve as the auxiliary heat source regulating the temperature inside the incubator. The machine can process up to 4,000 eggs at the same time. This can double the income of farmers. SMS reader for the Blind A group of four engineering students from the De La Salle University invented the SMS reader, a device that allows the blind to read and send text messages. The prototype is composed of a black box with a Braille display that mimics the interface of a mobile phone. A data cable is connected to a slot in the black box. Superkalan Narciso Mosuela of La Union province invented the "superkalan", a novelty stove that can be fired with anything that burns—wood, paper, dried dung and leaves, corn cobs, and coco shells. The body of this stove is made of aluminum alloy, with a cast iron heat intensifier. For his invention, the Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) bestowed on Mosuela the "best design award" for Third World country category in 1987. Aside from the superkalan, Mr. Mosuela invented a functional rice thresher and other kitchen gadgets. Anti-cancer cream In November 2005, Filipino inventor Rolando dela Cruz won the gold medal for his "DeBCC" anti-cancer cream at the prestigious International Inventor's Forum in Nuremberg, Germany. The "DeBCC" cream, developed from cashew nuts and other local herbs, was chosen over 1,500 entries as the "most significant invention" of the year. According to Mr. dela Cruz, the cream was a simple answer to basal cell carcinoma (BCC), the most common type of skin cancer worldwide. BCC affects around 800,000 Americans every year, according to the Skin Care Foundation. BCC also affects 500,000 Europeans and 190,000 Australians every year. Mole Remover In 2000, Rolando dela Cruz developed an ingenuous formula that could easily remove deeply grown moles or warts from the skin without leaving marks or hurting the patient. His formula was extracted from cashew nut (Annacardium occidentale), which is common in the Philippines. The formula won for dela Cruz a gold medal in International Invention, Innovation, Industrial Design and Technology Exhibition in Kuala Lumpur in September 2000. In March 1997, dela Cruz established RCC Amazing Touch International Inc., which runs clinics engaged "in a non-surgical removal of warts, moles and other skin growths, giving the skin renewed energy and vitality without painful and costly surgery." Modular Housing System Edgardo Vazquez won a World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) gold medal in 1995 for developing a modular housing system. Such a system called Vazbuilt is reportedly capable of building within weeks a house with prefabricated materials that can withstand typhoons and earthquakes. Ironically, Vasquez is not getting enough support from the Philippine government to propagate his technology, which could help provide shelter to some five million Filipino families without their own homes. Vazquez is the national president of the Filipino Inventors Society. Super Bunker Formula-L In 1996, Rudy Lantano Sr., a scientist from the Philippine Department of Science and Technology (DOST), won the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) gold medal for developing Super Bunker Formula-L, a revolutionary fuel half-composed of water. The mix burns faster and emits pollutants, 95 percent less than those released to the air by traditional fuel products. The inventor said his invention is a result of blending new ingredients and additives with ordinary oil products through agitation and mixing, which is a very safe process. The initial plan was to commercially produce two million liters of Alco-Diesel, two million liters of Lan-Gas and an unlimited quantity of Super Bunker Formula-L each day for customers in Luzon. Natural Gas Vehicle The Department of Energy (DOE) has developed a vehicle that runs on natural gas, whose rich deposits remain untapped under the Philippine seabed. The project's main objective is to look into the potential of natural gas as an alternative fuel to conventional petrol and diesel for the transport sector. The natural gas vehicle (NVG) has been road-tested in Isabela where an existing natural gas supply from the PNOC Gas Plant is located. Test runs have also been made in Cagayan, Ifugao and Mountain Province. The test vehicle used was the Isuzu Hi-Lander 4JA-1, direct injected diesel engine. The use of natural gas as a fuel is cheaper. On a gallon-equivalent basis, natural gas costs an average of 15 to 40 percent less than gasoline and diesel. There are over one million NVGs in the world today, according to the International Association for Natural Gas Vehicles. Lamp Fixing Invention A Filipino inventor has developed a technology, which could revive a busted lamp (pundido) and give it more years of functional life than those of new ones. Acclaimed by the Filipino Inventors Society as timely and revolutionary, the Nutec system can prolong the life of fluorescent lamps up to seven years. Nutec was developed by New World Technology, headed by president Eric Ngo and chosen as the "Product of the Year" at the Worldbex 2000 Building and Construction Exposition held at the Manila Hotel. Engineer Benjamin S. Santos, national president of the Inventors Society, called Nutec a timely invention. "Tubig Talino" The Department of Science and Technology claimed that it has developed "Tubig Talino", an iodine-rich drinking water that treats micronutrient deficiencies responsible for goiter, mental and physical retardation, and birth defects. "Tubig Talino" is actually a mixture of 20 liters of water and 15 ml of "Water Plus + I2". Consumption of five glasses a day of this iodine fortification in drinking water is expected to provide 120 micrograms of iodine, which meets 100 percent of the recommended dietary allowance (RDA) of a male adult. Feminine Hygiene Product Inventor Dr. Virgilio Malang won a gold medal for his invention "Psidium Guajava Effervescing Gynecological Insert", a silver medal for his "Patient Side-Turning Hospital Bed", and three bonze medals for his inventions "external vaginal cleanser", "light refracting earpick", and "broom's way of hanging" at the Seoul International Fair in held South Korea in December 2002. There were 385 inventions from 30 countries that joined the competitions. Patis Contrary to popular belief, there was no fish sauce or Patis yet during the Spanish occupation. Patis began to become a part of most Filipinos' diet only after the Japanese occupation. Here is an account of how an enterprising lady discovered the fermentation of Patis. Immediately after the war, the family of Ruperta David or Aling Tentay started a dried fish business. One day, Aling Tentay stored in jars some salted fish that turned into fragments even before they dried. While in jars, the fish fragments turned into a liquid substance that tasted like our Patis today. Thus the beginning of the thriving Patis business of Aling Tentay, which was officially registered in 1949 and is known today as Tentay Food and Sauces Inc. (Source: Philippine Daily Inquirer) A Showcase of Ingenuity Nothing perhaps has been associated with Filipino technology as much as the country's pride - jeepney. The word "jeep" evolved from the military designation, general-purpose or G.P., of a light vehicle first used by the Americans in World War II. Developed by the U.S. Army Quartermaster Corps, this vehicle was powered by a four-cylinder engine and was classified as a quarter-ton truck in carrying capacity. It had served as a command vehicle, reconnaissance car, and ammunition carrier. The American soldiers brought these vehicles to the Philippines in the 1940s. After the war, these vehicles were left by the Americans and converted by the Filipinos into public utility vehicles. Employing artistic and indigenous designs, the Filipinos came up with a longer, well-decorated, techni-colored and sleeker vehicle, which they later called jeepney. From the standard military jeep, the body was extended to accommodate between 20 to 30 passengers. Modern jeepneys now sport very colorful and intricate paintings, fancy adornments, and metallic decors reflective of Filipino sentiments, values, and culture. The town of Las Pinas has been recognized as the jeepney-producing center in the country. Today, public utility jeepneys or PUJs serve as the primary means of transportation in most provinces. For this, the Philippines came to be known as the "land of the jeepneys".

Slimming Forever. Most people, at one time or another, have tried to lose weight, but, in the long run, very few have succeeded. These people have tried various methods to lose weight. They have gone on strict diets, but as soon as they go off that diet, they have gained the weight back and then some. Others have tried various so-called slimming aids like weight-reduction belts, and they, too, have failed to lose the weight they desired. The solution is my new weight-loss course called “Slimming Forever.” In my revolutionary course, I use “Hypnotherapy” as one of the tools to help you lose weight. During the hypnotherapy sessions, advanced binaural and subliminal technology is employed to reprogram your subconscious mind. The result is that you will learn to resist eating certain foods, and, just as importantly, you will eat only when you are hungry. I guarantee you, if you follow all my instructions, you will lose the weight you desire and will never gain it back. You will be “slim forever.” And to prove to you the confidence I have in my program, if you are not satisfied with the results, I will refund you all your money, no questions asked.
