Del Rosario, Anna Sarah Kimberly Q. 1CA4


Operational Definition of Terms


The following possible definitions of the term “Christian perspective on family planning” are of the following:

1. As shown by the records showing the number of pro-life programs held per annum
2. As indicated by how many Christians reject the idea of abortion because they value love and life.
3. As shown by the number of Christians who use the Natural way of family planning
4. As shown by the number of Christians who use the Artificial way of family planning
5. As demonstrated by records showing enrollment in pro-life agendum and movements


Scope and Limitation of the Study

This paper is concerned with the determining the attitudes of selected Metro Manila pastors towards Family Planning. Emphasis is placed on the following family planning items, namely, Christian perspective on birth control and abortion. Moreover, birth control is represented by natural and artificial means. By natural means include Fertility Awareness Method, Cycle Bead, Cervical Mucus Method, Basal Body Temperature and Cervical Observation. Artificial method includes contraception usage. Abortion is a big issue therefore the study puts further search on what are the pastors’ attitudes towards it.

THOUGHT PAPER




What's in are iPods. I bet you'll agree with me in this because Ipods are a big craze today. You'll see people everywhere carrying OR dreaming about having iPods. What are iPods? Ipods are portable MP3 players made by the Apple Computer Incorporation. It's a product of the advancements that arised from walkman, discman, and now iPods. It's an evolution that can be compared with that from Beta Max, VHS, VCDs to DVDs.

I had mine only last October 2004. My mother purchased it in an Apple shop at US when she was still there. It costed $300 then. (I don't know its price here). Right now I am holding the box entailing its features and requirements. Here are its features:

1) Holds over 5000 songs at near CD quality on 20GB hard drive
2) Up to 12 hours of continous playback with rechargeable lithium-ion battery
3) Super portable at 5.6 ouces and 0.57 inch thick, 2.4 inches wide and 4.1 inches tall
4) Automatically synchronizes music, playlists, and audiobooks with your Mac or PC
5) Innovative Click Wheel for easy navigation
6) Plays AAC, MP3, Apple Lossless, WAV, AIFF, and Audible formats
7) Skip protection of up to 25 minutes
8) High-resolution, backlit LCD display
9) Includes iPod, earphones, FireWire cable, USB 2.0 cable, and AC adapter

Those features are for an iPod 20GB. How much it costed my mom is definitely worth it because I can carry it with me anytime anywhere. For me, an iPod is a mass medium just like the radio, tv and newspapers. It not only has playlists for songs but games, calendar, and contacts, too. I believe it is a medium of information. An information at least of the time and date, the title, length, album and the artist of the song. The fact that it's a device that contains songs, it's already a mass medium because songs disseminates information to listeners. Plus, songs may be updated from the internet for free. If you have an access to iTunes on line, you can get songs from their website and transfer them to your iPod all at once. Through songs, artists are advertised. An iPod is a unique mass media which does not cost a lot to distribute and develop content for.

In the essay 'Books Will Endure, but Will Publishers?' written by James Surowiecki, it is pointed out how e-books affect the publishing industry. Change is constant and irresistible and it should be observed keJames Surowiecki wrote, he implies that e-books don't want to compete with publishers. Actually, they want to work with them. What is an e-book? I have browsed the internet and learned that "The e-book is an electronic version of a book. It can be on computer disk, data installed on an automated retrieval system, CD-ROM, downloaded as a digital file, displayed on a linear CRT or LED screen device. It's anything other than a book printed on paper." (www.powernet.net)
In the beginning, E-book industry was filled enly... How does change affect the people's living(economy)? E-books are hearsaid to be responsible for the demise of the publishing industry. But in the essay that with positive thoughts. They predicted that they can maximize profit in a short period of while. For that, it had been a controversy that they are the industry responsible for the demise of the print books. E-publishing, a starting feature of the advancement of technology, had gone through a necessary shakeup. They put out more than what they earn because they are overpriced. Their business may require a big amount of investment but their starting company can't be overpriced because they are still starting. Well, they are still developing. All companies go through shakeups. They have to be strong for those in stored.
I can say that E-books are really really convenient especially if you have the gadgets and you can afford a device on which you can read books. You can simply read articles from pamphlets to thick novels in just one access to the internet. You won't have to carry excess baggages and earn back aches from it. Plus, they're available and updated! It could be possible that books are printed to order. It saves publishers from having to print so many copies and lose so much capital. Publisher can take a chance on a new writer without the heavy investment in print runs. Based on experience, some books are unavailable in bookstores- which is very inconvenient. Like when we were required to read the book 'THE REPUBLIC' by Plato in our PGC subject, the whole class freaked out because they can't find the book in National Bookstore and Power books. Still got lucky when two or three were able to find the precious book in one of the stalls in Recto. We were all rushing and cramming to have the books photocopied so we can read them at least for the last weeks of the deadline. Out-of-print. Unavailable. Pressure. Inconvenient.
But then, no matter how convenient e-books could be, they can never replace 'real books'. It's natural that people still view books as tangible... Something you could save your money for, hold up to your hand, read, flip your pages to, read, borrow from a cousin, lend to your boyfriend, sell to a used-book shop, etc., That's the tradition! Many people don't like to move on to the advancement.They'd rather preserve the traditional ways. It's unimaginable to save your money, hold up to your hand, read, flip your pages to, borrow from a cousin, lend to a boyfriend and sell to a used-book shop-- an E-book! Besides, not all people can afford gadgets and access to E-books. E-books aren't necessarily for everyone. They may succeed but they won't erase the existence of the real books. Me? I'd still go for the real book. I don't want to miss the fun in going to bookstores... it's the real thing.
Electronic book publishing may be popular and may become entertaining to people but Publishers will go on. Publishers will endure. They have always been in a market that's slow-growing. Come whatever giant may, they're still in.

Chapters 7 Television and Video (Kearsley Text)
What makes television such as compelling medium for education, learning, and instruction?
How are educators supposed to compete with the dynamics of commercial TV as an educational and learning medium?
Television is a comparatively new medium of communication. Historically, there is a number of developments that have preceded this media as a medium of communication. Prepare a list of these "milestones" in communication and describe why television is such a compelling development and has made a significant impact on society and education.
With the new developments in the video arena, both broadcast and Internet delivered, do educators need to consider broadening their skills and knowledge in this area?
Do we really need "full-screen" video for using television as an educational technology for learning?
Television is very unique medium of communication; unlike many other forms of communication used in entertainment and instruction, television is intense and occupies nearly all of the "human bandwidth." If this is true, then what are the implications for us as teachers and educators in using the television media as a medium of instruction? In other words, how might we change the type of instruction planning and delivery that we are so accustomed to?
The other day I was in CompUSA, you know the "computer super store," and noticed a TV tuner card that could be plugged into one of my expansion slots and give me a TV window" on my screen while I worked along in my favorite word processor. I could change channels with the click of a mouse and even change the size of the window if something came along that I was really interested in! So what is new? This has been around for a while. But in the not too distant future, television will move from its current analog format to a digital format. This will effectively remove the line between the computer and the TV as we know it today. What are the implications for us as teachers, educators, and instructional designers?
As a teacher in a "regular classroom" environment, could I use television as another means of instruction and assessment? If yes, then how? If no, then why not?
As I was sitting here with a fresh-brewed cup of Eight O'clock brand of coffee and some toasted oatmeal cookies and thinking . . . "What would be an innovative way that I could use television or video to really put some 'zing' into instruction?" What would you suggest?

In the line “There’s a man with a burden to keep”, N of man and burden and R of there’s and burden make up an alliteration. In “Now sleep will fall washout rags n’ paper bags” W of now, will and washout, L of sleep, will, fall and AGS of rags and paperbags make up an internal rhyme.
In the second and last stanza, there’s no much alliteration or internal rhyme but I observed that the words at the end of the lines have alternate rhymes: LIFE-CALL-LIFE-FALL. This stanza repeats after the third stanza.
The first line of the third stanza, “Now dreamsrun wild As lovers find their way” has the alliterations W of now, wild and way, R of dreams, run, lovers and their and lastly, D of dreams, wild and find. In its third line, “and over there, over the twinkling of the lights”, it has the alliterations of ER in the words over, there and over. In the last line, “Harbor lights, say goodnight one more time, it has the alliterations of R in the words harbor and more. It also has alliterations in letter T with the wordslights, goodnight and time.

The meter of the first stanza is 6-8-9-5. The meter of the second and fourth stanza is 8-11-8-11. The meter of the third stanza is 8-9-9-8. I think this is a free verse because there’s an internal rhyme and no meter.





The poem is a combination of both literal and metaphysical meanings. It is mysterious yet deep. The first two lines “Over there, just beneath the moon there’s a man with a burden to keep” are literal. It simply narrates about a man who has deep thoughts over a burden. The next lines “Now sleep will fall washout rags and paper bags, homes and lives passing by” are figurative. It is a personification kind of figure of speech because sleep will fall and homes and lives are passing by.

“Who will see the beauty in your life? And who will be there to hear you when you call? Who will see the madness in your life? And who will be there to catch you if you fall?”—The second stanza is a series ofquestions. It is an irony because right after asking about beauty, it asks about madness. It is somewhat ironical because beauty and madness is a sarcastic expression of life and fate.

Though I like Apple as much as Dell, my brother told me that its much more practical to choose Dell because its US' most preferred. Besides, Apple has a Macintosh System Software and learning it is like starting all over again. I guess my brother (OPINION LEADER) was right. That difference bothered me either and so I purchased a DELL Latitude D505 Laptop.

1. Why was hannibal, who wo most of his battles, unable to defeat Rome?
Rome was known to be the city above seven hills. Hannibal didn't win Rome because he couldn't go up the walls of Rome. Rome outsmarted the attack and sent Scipio Africanus to colonize Carthage then. Hannibal was called by his mother land but his soldiers turned their backs... that's why he lost the battle. In 182 B.C, he committed suicide at Bithynia.

2. Consider the outrageous behavior of Nero and Caligula. Why do you think that their excesses apparently made so little difference in the overall functioning of the Empire?
Caligula, who took over Emperor Tiberius, made his horse the consul. while Nero have had the Christians killed. They made so little difference of the Empire because they didn't contribute anything good at all. I think they made no sense because they were simply after their titles... not of their responsibility nor of the empire's welfare.

3. Discuss the economic, social, and political status of Rome during the Pax Romana.
During the Pax Romana(Roman peace), all the countries of the Empire worked for peace. It was safe to travel off shore and there weren't any of bloody and civil wars and riots. The economy, too, was flourishing... The government officials were working so well for the people and the society diverted their doings in art, literature, aqueduct, roads, temples, schools, theatre, villa, et cetera.
4. What factors enabled the early Romans to avoid civil war, carry out reform and unite against the common foe? How did the Romans differ in this regard?

Rome became the heart of the Empire.The Romans had good leaders that made up a good government. As one, they focused on the good that will come out of their soldarity. They may be made up of many countries but they worked as one. The Emperor's efforts would bring Rome to its territorial peak; no more conquests of any significance would follow.

5. Do you find the use of the expression true democracy to characterize life during the Pax Romana to be ironic? What price in freedom did the individuals have to pay for this stability?

As for me, there can be no perfect democracy in any kind of goverment because there will always be evil in power. Rome perhaps was at peace but what happened was that Roman culture faded and the Roman power fell... Dark Age came about.
