During the morning session, 14 contestants of the Elevator Pitch Contest were given a maximum of 60 seconds each to present themselves and answer their future employer’s possible questions. The Group Conversation Contest started with 10 groups consisting of 4 to 6 members conversing at the stage with their chosen topic for 5 to 10 minutes. They talked about prevalent issues such as bullying, Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), traffic congestion, and other national issues. “English language is very important in the workplace where the challenges are huge and so are the possibilities,” said Dr. Jocelyn T. Arcillas, CA Dean, on the opening of the afternoon assembly. During the Job Interview contest, Dr. Sarah Cruz, Ms. Sheena Marie Velayo, and Dr. Hernando Bernal Jr. asked three questions to each participant, simulating a real life panel interview for job applicants. Slam Poetry 1st Placer, April Joy Omboy, bested the other participants with her piece “Wonder of Justice” while Eric Marc Martin’s “English Language, Ladder of Light,” and Jenny Rose Soriano’s “English Competency for the Millennial” placed 2nd and 3rd, respectively.

Tycoons as Future Stockholders To immerse themselves into the world of stock market, the Tycoons attended an Investment Seminar with a guest speaker from Philippine Stock Exchange’s Market Education Department (PSE-MED), Jonathan Bryan Endaya, last August 16 at Seminar Rooms A and B. “[The] best time to invest is yesterday, the better time is now,” said Mr. Endaya after tackling the prospect dividends a stockholder can have through dividend cash, additional stocks, and potential property, along with the guidelines on how to invest in the stock market. He briefly explained the stock aspects, discussed the five W’s and H of investment, and shared techniques on how to be a successful investor by relating his first hand experiences. Amazing Quiz Show Four teams, each consisting of five members, competed in a set of challenges requiring wit, focus, and cooperation. During the first part of the event, the teams engaged in the first trial called “Tangram” where, players used their visual interpretation skills to form a figure from different cut-out shapes. In “Battle-Dub,” each member of a team must successfully flip a half-filled plastic water bottle consecutively with the butt landing in three repetitions. The “Stock Cups” challenge involved moving a stack of cups from one end of the table to the other using an elastic band tied to strings in order to move the cups. Members of the teams formed a reclining chair position where their backs must be bent, lying on each other’s laps, and hold it for 10 seconds in “Human Chair.” In “It’s Fishing Time,” members sticked a cut-out crab-shaped paper on the wall using only their noses. During

the “Flag Naming” challenge, teams matched different flags with its corresponding country names. In the final challenge, “Find Me,” the participants seek from different stations their respective colored flags. The second half of the game featured a two-part quiz bee involving general knowledge and business education courses. The group of Jimboy Peñano (BSA), Ryna May Ramos (BSBA HRDM), Krizzia Mae De Luna (BSBA FMA), Maricris Jane Dedoro (BSBA FMA), and Rizzalyn Ortiz (BSA) were declared champions for having the fastest time clearing the race. MM, LSCM rule CBE Model Students ‘17 Aspirants from different CBE programs vied for the crown during the CBE Model Students 2017 held at the PE Center 1. Prior to the coronation night, Juan Gabriel Gan (BSA) and France Marian Ramos (BSA) made their final walk as Mr. and Ms. CBE Model Students 2016. Finally, Michael James Basilan (BSBA MM) and Janna Tricia Gabriel (BSBA LSCM) captured the title. With them are Dhar Kenneth Atienza (BSBA MM) and Jacel Gonzales (BS FMA) who emerged as first runners-up followed by Azear John Lacsamana (BSA) and Loren Bongay (BSBA FMA) as second runners-up. “Joining the pageant for the second time around was a tough decision. It was an unexplainable happiness not just for me but also for my family. This time, I gave my 200 percent. I wanted to look hungry but not starving. I believe this is God’s way of telling me that as long as I know how to wait for the perfect time, along with hard work and prayers, I will definitely succeed,” said Janna Tricia Gabriel when asked about her experience after being crowned as the Ms. CBE Model Student 2017.

Photography joined the fair. Conducted simultaneously was the Minute-2-Win-It contest sponsored by Oishi, Jergens, and Caronia. CPA passers inspire young minds Two Certified Public Accountants (CPA) from the recently held examinations were invited to inspire the undergraduates of T.I.P. QC. Ms. Rebecca Anne O. Barraquias talked about how she took studying very seriously that led her to become a CPA. Mr. John Kennedy F. Domingo, on the other hand, admitted that he is an avid DOTA player and shared that one can also achieve one’s goal if perseverance and proper balance of hobbies and studies is observed. CBE Slam Jam features OPM rock bands Completing the 5th leg of Rock Back to School 8, 10 OPM bands performed during the CBE Slam Jam 2017 last August 16 at PE Center 1. 6cyclemind’s “Sandalan,” “Sige,” and Walk The Moon’s “Shut up” set the mood of the crowd. Gracenote’s own rendition of Stevie B’s “When I Dream about You” swayed the audience to the music. T.I.P.’s Deadline, as well as popular bands like Banda ni Kleggy, Better Days, Hilera, Stellar, Jensen and the Flips and DJ Marion Angelo also moved the crowd with their

popular hits. Finally, Moonstar88 evoked nostalgia with their all-time hit, “Migraine”. In addition, the band sang five songs including Eraserhead’s “Paraluman,” Kamikazee’s “Narda,” their classic “Torete,” and the newly released single “Gigil” with the collaboration of Jensen and the Flips. The Rock Back to School 8 was made possible by 7-Eleven, Caronia, Rakista Radio, Jergens, D&D Custom Guitars, and Red Lines Entertainment Productions.

an Environmental Quiz Bee featuring questions related to matter, laws covering environmental concerns, health, chemistry, geography, and ecosystem.

Collaborative talks

Arch. Michaela Rosette Santos discussed the impact of climate change. She introduced green buildings as high performance buildings compared to the usual buildings which were top contributors of carbon emissions. She said that architects and engineers must focus on creating green buildings and reasoned this out by giving three points: you need to prepare for the future, there is only one world, and you have the power to make the change. Arch. Stephanie N. Gilles

rd

talked about the emergency architecture intended for disasters by enumerating temporary types of constructions for calamities, strategies to promote city resiliency, and emphasized four phases of emergency management which are mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery. Arch. Gilles enumerated local agencies and associations that maintain the Philippines’ standard of architecture namely League of Philippine Architects (LPA), Association of Philippine Government Architects (APGA), Philippine Institute of Architects (PIA), and the United Architects of the Philippines (UAP), in coordination with the National Disaster Risk Reduction Management Council (NDRRMC).

Environmental awareness through art

During the first day, the participants of the E-Sculpture competition made replicas of animals using recycled materials. The competition aimed to make an innovative design of indigent Philippine animals such as the eagle, tarsier, and butanding (whale shark). Next is the 2D-Art contest which aimed to convey a powerful message through pencil and canvas towards establishing a keen environmental awareness. The contestants made art pieces to promote how to make Earth a better place to live in. “A puzzle piece represents a greater connection to the environment while the helping hands indicate the environmental awareness and willingness of the people in preserving our environment. Blue and green colors represent a clean environment,” McGlen Austria, one of the winners who shared the meaning of his artwork. The Photography Competition was divided into two parts: Animal and Model categories which aimed to creatively capture the current state of the environment through various animal and model subjects. Outstanding pieces featured polluted surroundings, both land and water, and its effects.

Learning as one for the “Big One”

The winning teams were as follows:

Engr. Michael B. Baylon, a faculty member of Adamson University, discussed “Seismic Assessments on Structures Using Fragility Curves” which is about the application of computer technology in simulating the effects of an earthquake to a structure. He demonstrated a 28-hour simulation of the effects of earthquake on a structure using Matrix Laboratory (MATLAB) technology and showed the attendees how to devise the fragility curve of existing structures. Engr. Angel Jaurigue, National Director of PICE, gave his insights incorporating the theme: “What is Structural Engineering in the Millennium?”. He talked about how civil engineers perceive the widening road for structural engineering. He presented various videos to inculcate knowledge and testimonies clearly on what structural engineering is. To end the morning session, Engr. Wilfredo S. Lopez, a member of the Structural Engineering Specialty Division of PICE National Chapter, lectured the basics of earthquake engineering and lessons learned on the past earthquakes.

12th OlymPhysics gears up SHS studes THE MATH AND PHYSICS Department (MPD), together with student organization Abstract Combination with Emotional Quotient (ACE-Q) gathered 32 high schools around Metro Manila during the 12th OlymPhysics last September 22, 2017 at PE Center 1 and Seminar Rooms A and B. With an objective of enhancing Physics and Mathematics skills, the 12th OlymPhysics featured two types of activities namely, written examination and group experiments. The competition tested the SHS students to exhibit their Physics aptitude with intellectual application of scientific knowledge. There were nine group experiments given. For the easy round, the activities were the “Nutscracker” which pertains to center of mass, “Sticky Coin” which applies the principle of centripetal force, and “Egg-citing Game” which connects the fusion of projectile, impulse, and momentum. The average round included activities such as “To Spill or Not To Spill” which uses the scientific principles of cohesion and surface tension, “Hydro Transfer” for pressure, gravity, and Bernoulli’s principle, and the “Sugar Rainbow” which tackles density and surface tension. Finally, activities in the difficult round include “Magic Seesaw” which applies the principles of

gravity, torque and equilibrium. Another one is the “Acetilight” which is connected with the electric circuit concept, and lastly the “Yummy Tower” which deals with the principles of stability, equilibrium and tension. After the final round the following schools along with their representatives emerged as winners: NAME OF SCHOOL

ISSUE T.I.P.ians celebrate Thanksgiving Mass 2017 TREASURING the blessings and embracing another school year ahead, Technological Institute of the Philippines (T.I.P.) Quezon City celebrated the Annual Thanksgiving Mass at the Anniversary Hall last July 3. Emphasizing belief, passion, and mercy, Rev. Fr. Arnold Abelardo reflected and shared his experiences when he and other volunteers visited the Islamic City of Marawi during his homily. He talked about how Muslim residents are very thankful for the donations and prayers and how the Filipino soldiers uphold their courage and dignity to protect their countrymen. “All of us must recognize that we are family,” Fr. Abelardo said as he encouraged everyone to start changing by helping ending the culture of violence within the community. “By being educated, you are going to be Filipinos, Catholics, T.I.P.ians, human beings who will strive towards inclusion for all, for working towards getting your marginalized fellow Filipinos into the same foot,” Mr. Angelo Q. Lahoz, Senior VicePresident (SVP), emphasized as he expressed his sympathy to the Marawi residents before reading the message

of the President, Dr. Elizabeth QuirinoLahoz. On behalf of his mother, SVP Lahoz complimented the Grade 12 students and wished that by the Thanksgiving Mass at the beginning of the next school year, T.I.P. will welcome all of the graduated SHS students as new T.I.P. college freshmen. He also thanked the people behind the improvement of classrooms that are NAME Dr. Cynthia Llanes

SHS and college org officers unite in annual team building

WITH THE PURPOSE of raising social awareness and fostering camaraderie among student leaders, over a hundred participants from different student organizations of Technological Institute of the Philippines Quezon City (T.I.P. QC), together with the Senior High School Department (SHSD), participated in the annual organizational team building last August 5 at T.I.P. QC 7th floor of the Administration Bldg. During the morning session, two activities namely “Bumabagyo!” and “Holy Trap!” helped the students showcase their individual and social skills. Eight groups were formed out of the participants. For the afternoon session, four activities were staged to be participated by the teams. The activity “Shoot and carry the ball” tested a team’s

ability to focus and coordinate with each other as they move a Ping-Pong ball using a string from one point to another. Next is the “Traffic Jam” tested the participants’ patience and ability to take one action at a time. For the “Star Searching” activity, students were blindfolded and tasked to form a star with their bodies using a thread of plastic. The final activity, “Flip the Tarp,” challenged students to literally think outside the box as they need to flip the tarp and step on it at the same time without going outside its boundaries. Engr. Gerald Semifrania, Office of Student Affairs (OSA) Coordinator, concluded the team building and briefly lectured on the essence of teamwork in accomplishing tasks in more efficient ways.

New batch of T.I.P. SHS students attend T.I.P. Mission/Vision Roll-out 2017 WELCOMING THE NEW batch of Senior High School students — the Technological Institute of the Philippines Quezon City (T.I.P. QC) oriented the new batch of SHS students last July 13 at the Anniversary Hall. Dr. Elizabeth Quirino-Lahoz, T.I.P. President, welcomed the Grade 11 students of the school year 20172018. She also gave takeaways for the students to remember, “I want you to have fun and meaningful stay here at TIP but don’t just have fun— number two, study hard,” said Dr. Lahoz during her speech. Afterwards, she related the success of T.I.P. for it ranked 6th in the Top 10 schools that produce the best quality graduate hires according to the 2017 Fresh Graduates Report by Jobstreet.com. Meanwhile, Cedrick G. Dela Cruz, a 5th year Electronics Communication (ECE) student, shared his triumphs and hardships from being a student, who experienced failures in life, into becoming an achiever. “We should take failures as opportunities, don’t be afraid to fail,” Dela Cruz said. Cedrick had participated many leadership trainings and got a chance to be involved in the Association of

Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Preparatory Meeting last April 2017. “Grow intentionally every day,” he concluded. Engr. Jemuel Castillo, Vice President for Quality Management and Planning, talked about the T.I.P. Core Values and 5S policy which every T.I.P.ian should acquire to be a well-rounded SHS student. His speech focused on students’ initiatives and how such will shape them into successful citizens in the future. In addition, Mr. Angelo Q. Lahoz, T.I.P. Senior Vice President, presented the new T.I.P. Vision and Mission and Strategic Objectives

and encouraged the students to have their own set of vision and mission to guide them. To close the ceremony, Dr. Cynthia C. Llanes, Vice-President for Academic Affairs (VPAA) and Head of Executive Management Committee, discussed the Outcome-Based Education (OBE) educational paradigm. The OBE of T.I.P. was designed to bridge the gap between the needs of the industry and the kind of graduates produced by the academe. T.I.P.’s OBE was one of the pioneering initiatives in the Philippine Higher Education as commended by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED). Rochelle Casano, Johnvyle Mallari

ailing scores in quizzes, unsubmitted homeworks, mind-griding seat works, and unfinished projects. Admit it or not, we frequently end up being in either one of these “nightmares.” It could be due to our improper study habits or perhaps environmental factors which hinder us from fully grasping our lessons. Additionally, there could be mismatch of our learning skills with that of the teaching strategies employed by our instructors. As students, it’s our obligation to adjust and at the same time, find ways to cope in order to achieve our dream scores. However, do you even wonder why some of your classmates aced the latest quiz and topped the recent exam? Did you care to ask them why they easily analyze and calculate engineering and math problems? Well, if you do, you might be surprised to know that they get “help” from somewhere called the “virtual world.” Isn’t it amazing? Now, it is good to know that the Internet does not only provide recreation and relaxation but also offer something beneficial for students like us. So, read ahead!

A guide to fitness

M

en and women alike, nobody wants to be tagged as obese. Through the years, people of various civilizations sprouting from different places found ways to make their lives easier. This progress came with a price. With it, the manual tasks were gone and people started becoming lazy. As a result of reduced physical activity, the population started to become noticeably fat. Beneath the flabby layers: The truth about muscle and fat

Have you ever thought that the weighing scale might be lying just because when you look yourself in the mirror, you see thtat your body is perfectly fit yet suddenly, another who appears denser weighs as much as you are. You are disappointed thinking all your hard work did not pay off that much. Well the truth is, muscle and fat weigh the same but differ in density, meaning your body looks much more ‘compressed’ even though you have the same weight. So don’t lose your wits and keep on grinding to encourage others to stay fit and healthy! Say goodbye to tempting delights

Have you wondered why you keep on gaining weight though you are doing your daily routine of jogs and exercises? It makes you feel bad and blame your genetics. Well, you’re half right to put the blame on it, but dig deeper and remember what you do after each of your daily routines: afterworkout-desserts? Check, energy drinks? Check, vanilla frappuccino with non-fat milk, whipped cream and no sugar? Check. Although not bad once in a while, it can rack-up your cholesterol levels if you keep eating and drinking these knowing how wicked your genes are. To keep yourself from craving, just remember one word: WATER. Yes, water, and it goes like this: •

Replenish your lost body fluids with H2O, other drinks are a not recommended.

Always bring water, beverages with artificial additives may put you at risk of cancer.

Rest properly and adequately, you know your body needs it.

Eat your food right, it will keep you tight.

Don’t risk being dehydrated, let water be your bestfriend.

Easy in-home exercises

Being the health conscious person that I am, I begun seeking many ways to cope with my declining state of fitness. Here are some easy exercises that you can do, even though you have no exercise equipment at home!

• Planking. Let’s start off with the trend back in 2015 where people would lie down flat on their bellies literally anywhere. Way back planking was a trend, although unbeknownst to many, this is the perfect exercise to rip up your core muscles. o How to do it – Lie down on the ground, doing a traditional push up position but use your elbows instead of hands for support. Hold this position for a set amount of time depending on your fitness level. Keep your back straight and your core (abdominal muscles) tight at all times. • Push ups. The exercise most known to man, push up is the way to go when you want to erase those dangling heaps of fat in your triceps whenever you walk or sway your arms. o How to do it – Lie facing the ground using your arms as support. Bend your arms slowly inwards as you shift your weight then push your body up. Repeat if able. • Leg raises. There are many variations to this exercise which targets different parts of the leg. One is the standing side leg raise which helps tone the hips, another is the lying leg raise which is done while lying on the ground. o How to do it – This exercise is simple, you just need to raise your legs slowly as high as you can and bring it down slowly depending on the intensity and variation.

Precautionary Measures

Exercising is always good but don’t push yourself too hard or you might get hurt. You might encounter injuries on your way to your dream body but don’t let them stop you. Take some breaks once in a while, drink plenty of fluids, and make sure you keep your motivation bar high enough to accomplish what you want.

Ordained Oblivion By Giemhel C. Gelera

Blanched Blood, Crimson Cries

While everybody else is getting out of bed, I’m here melting out from my head Feeling useless and incapable, Not a thousand skills I can devour

My fated brethren don’t you see? This cruel life of you and me Full of joy, accursed agony Wastelands of pure anomaly

By Shinji Nagai

My dreaded kin, I’ll bear with thee Those past discords will set you free Release the direful misery Unshackled from misogamy

My feet have been on the floor, My hands filled with wasted ichor I can’t move, I can’t stretch, Lying at the bottom, unstressed

Your words are full of spites, my friend I scorned you once, I wish it’d end Spurious, our brotherhood that is Somehow ended with a still hiss

Until how many more times, Will I strip over the same mines? As flop in the trials of a game, As fool I become to mislaid a fame

This rain of pain may not refrain I’m a cur who’ll never disdain Master, arouse my leal flame A wild beast, only you can tame

Not a chance to make a deadlock, For I’ve been killed in my first duck Catching up disposable appreciation, Begging for a piece of reputation

Now, I’ll end this miasmic tale About a mutt who lost her tail And I, sickening to the core Will ne’er hear a lion’s roar

Maybe I should end this pace, Being the national nutcase I can’t even thrust the nearest alp, Poor mavens devoted only in a dump

I’ll wait for you, dear foot soldier Only me, for you have sold her My precious blood, blistering bud Eternal tomb of tears and mud

Beaming Delight By Giemhel C. Gelera

Sudden silver glimpse Line swerving below the nose Acre opening I tickle humor Blissful pump within my heart Witnessing laughter Singsong with the chord Frequency on discourses Fondness at your sneer Like it is my goal Building oscillating blocks Breeding felicities

Laceration of the Tainted Maiden By Shinji Nagai

EDITORIAL According to a 2014 global report by World Health Organization (WHO), suicide is the second leading cause of death among people 15 to 29 years of age. While our country fares better among other countries, we should not remain complacent nor take this issue of mental health for granted. In fact, the prevalence of mental illnesses, particularly depression and anxiety among Filipinos have grown by 18% between 2005 and 2015. In our country, mental health is rarely discussed. This is aggravated by a very limited number of studies and literatures about it. It takes a lot of courage for someone to open up and talk about its importance. It is about time to shed light on this prevalent matter. As a college student, juggling different responsibilities via multi-tasking just to make sure everything is under control can make you easily forget about yourself. Students who prioritize academics in order to cope with numerous deadlines often overlook their physical health by sleeping late at night, skipping meals or eating unhealthy diets. Little did they knew; these actions do not only affect their physical state but also their mental health. Taking care of your physical self is as important as taking care of your mental well-being. Although there are several factors attributed to the rise of mental illnesses, academic work is considered the biggest factor among college students who experienced depression. This was according to a comprehensive study of Tristan Yuviencio about depression among college students in Metro Manila involving 135 students with an age range of 16 to 24. According to his survey, majority of his respondents

experienced moderately intense to very intense episodes of depression during their stay in school. Pressure in the academic work, career, family, or even relationships push people to spend less time interacting personally or socially with others which contributes to the feeling of isolation, and eventually depression. According to Imelu Mordeno who holds a P.h.D. in Clinical Psychology, the Philippines needs vast literature pertaining to depression in order for schools to promote awareness on mental health. In addition, Assoc. Prof. Jocelyn Nieva Yatco-Bautista, MD, FPPA, FSCAP, said the presence of mental health programs in the academe not only contributes to the betterment of the students but also destigmatizes the idea of people with mental illness as “just having a weak state of mind.”

People need to address the stigma associated with depression and anxiety because it makes the people affected feel worse. Understanding a person suffering from depression, anxiety, or mood disorder syndrome may be quite difficult because unlike a physical illness, these kinds of mental illnesses “show” signs that cannot be easily detected. Depression and anxiety are considered the “invisible illnesses” because the signs and symptoms can be easily masked by the victim but are really fatal when not immediately and professionally treated. Not because you don’t see one’s pain, doesn’t mean it is not there. Learn to have an understanding and empathic mindset to help those individuals in need, instead of referring them as “weak.”

Before it’s too late

In today’s advanced age, most people already own something techy – a phone, tablet, laptop, camera, and more. In a recent global study in California, the Philippines ranked first on the usage of smart tablets. We also topped the list when it comes to using smart phones. Unfortunately, a vast percentage of Filipinos who use gadgets are children ranging from five to 15-year-olds. How did these gadgets land on the hands of youngsters? Parents tolerate their children into using gadgets, making them exposed and subsequently attached to the online world. It is no longer quite surprising how some children are even more knowledgeable than adults when it comes to touch screen devices. I have spent more than a half of my age without being attached online. My early years were spent on interacting with people face to face. I once told my

VO ICE VO ICE VO ICE VO ICE VO ICE VO ICE VO ICE VO ICE VO ICE VO ICE VO ICE VO ICE VO ICE VO ICE VO ICE VO ICE VO ICE 15

friend, “Sana magka-internet na kami sa bahay para masaya.” Years later, I regret saying that because I didn’t feel totally happy at all. I stayed indoors and avoided interaction because I became attached to the Internet at a young age. Facebook, with a billion of active users, had brought a huge impact to people’s way of thinking. High involvement in social media like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram can affect the way we communicate and interact with other people. Some of us no longer wait for newspapers to arrive at our doorstep because scrolling through our newsfeeds is already enough. We no longer set face-to-face meetings because a group chat can suffice a conversation. Without a doubt, social media is an influential platform to voice out our opinions and share our ideas. It is powerful because it binds concerned citizens

regarding a particular issue. An example of this is when a group of students unite to protest the Marcos’ burial in the Heroes’ Cemetery. This is a proof that social media has the power to distribute information in just a matter of few clicks. Social media (and the Internet) has indeed widened the knowledge and experience of people, particularly the young ones. While social media has brought several benefits to the society, it is also known to be dangerous to one’s mental health. Having too much exposure to online sites might drive us to compare our life with one’s own. This leads to being a measure of someone’s successes and failures. We tend to filter our image to show people what we only want them to see. According to Dr. Bryony Bamford, a well-known clinical psychologist, high amount of time spent on Facebook leads to body image insecurity, which apparently leads to depression. Knowing our limitation is a way of ungluing our eyes from our screens. If we do not limit our use of gadgets, our relationships with our fellow will be less interactive and can slow down our cognitive development. As young adults, we need to teach the younger generation and raise awareness about taking care of our mental health by limiting our use of social media. We must exceed the miles we have scrolled through our feeds by the distance explored by our feet. Let us look at the world through our eyes and not on our screens.

A Beautiful Mind

Are you tired? Have you grown weary of doing something? Are you about to lose hope on holding on to something that you’ve been working persistently for a long time now, perhaps, your college degree? Do you feel like giving up because it seems that the things you do are taking you nowhere? Please, hold that thought for a while. Let me introduce to you Dr. John F. Nash Jr. Dr. Nash is a mathematician who got his Ph.D in Princeton University at an early age of 22. A trivial thing about him is that he was first pursuing a degree in Chemical engineering before he shift to mathematics. He is widely-known for his work on “Game Theory”. His “Eureka!” moment happened when he was hanging around with his friends in Princeton talking about ladies in the room. (Yes, that was indeed extraordinary! But wait, there’s more about him that you may want to know.) Forty years after publishing his work called “Nash Equilibrium”, he received a Nobel Prize in Mathematics. His biography inspired the film entitled “A Beautiful Mind”. The movie won 37 different awards, including 4 Oscar awards, and received 65 nominations from different award-giving organizations. Apart from his success stories, Dr. Nash was also known as the famous mathematician who suffered from a serious mental disorder called schizophrenia. Schizophrenia affects how a person thinks, feels, and behaves. People with schizophrenia may seem like they have lost touch with reality, as to what happened to Dr. Nash, though, in an interview Dr. Nash denied few of the delusions that the movie depicted, his disorder negatively affected his career for about two and a half decades. Almost everyone was losing hope that he will be able to cope with the things that

happened to him, except for his wife and himself. Dr. Nash was very determined, “All I have to do is apply my mind,” he told his psychiatrist that in order for him to come up with a solution to his mental problem. But his doctor had little faith in him and set him to be confined in a mental hospital. On the day that he was about to be sent to the hospital, he had a conversation with his wife, Alicia. She encouraged him and told him that she only need to believe that something extraordinary is possible. Thereafter, Dr. Nash stayed at home with her and their only son. Gradually, Dr. Nash learned to formulate his “diet of the mind” to control his disorder. John Nash’s life might have been very difficult but it is very inspiring. He knew what he had to do, to never give up. He first believed in himself before anyone else believed in him. His life is a one of a kind story filled with persistence, bravery, and, authenticity. Just like Nash, I believe that we all face difficult people and difficult thoughts, And I also believe that there is someone out there who certainly believes in you even in your darkest hours when you’re about to give up on yourself. He experienced to be made fun of because of the things he believed he can do, and I know once in your life you were too. In spite of his ups and downs he was still hoping that there is still something that he could contribute Nash spent most of his time dealing with thoughts that hinder his way, especially his past. The same thing with us, we are often haunted by our past – our mistakes, short-comings and regrets. If you keep feeding those thought, they will stay alive but if you starve them, they will die. Philippians 4:8! Choose not to indulge in unhealthy appetites for your mind.

Evidence of a Bestial Cataclysm

A Fleece in Disparity Food – a means to deviate an organism’s urge to dwell within the depths of an unconsciously occurring, vital abstinence. With its absence, the presence of insanity will gently devour the definition of a veracious, universal truth, a phenomenon known as starvation. For human beings, our biological composition compels us to forage and engross the essence of anything that possesses sustenance necessary for our own body’s incessant growth. Neutralized Existence What drive pushes a human being to munch on something that even going beyond, to the point of becoming a binge eater, all seems too natural? Is it the savory, flavorful wonder that resides in the deepest parts of a

harmoniously prepared banquet? Is it the pleasant experience found by becoming one with delicacies of the most pristine quality? Whatever it ais, we can all agree that for most meals, animal meats are precious necessities. Impurities that Linger Let us now define what animal meat signifies. For us humans, we have survived the earth for so long that even the faintest of scents emitted out by a yet to be identified object would drive us to seek out the source. Eventually, we are instinctively driven to consume only those energy sources with a stand out flavor, for a collective, opinionated truth, animal meat.

Remember your first attempts in learning? You were trying really hard to make a stroke similar to a G, but you wrote 6. You also cracked to spell a word, but your syllabication put you down. Your mother might have told you you’re not learning fast enough. Same goes in your middle school days. You were tasked to solve for x, yet you don’t know “y” you are doing it. You were surely frustrated back then, for not having it as perfect as it should be. Many of us consider life as if time is running wild while, some enjoy it like it’s a one-time-big-time gift. Well, it is true that we have our own ways of living it. But have you already asked yourself, “What if I am not doing it right?” Try clicking the clock icon in your mobile phones; you will see different approaches on how to use time according to purpose. You will see “Timer,” “Stopwatch,” and, lastly, the “Alarm Clock.” Let me give you situations that signify these options. Timer. Perhaps, your professor puts a 60-minute timer on you while taking a 100-item test. I bet you will use your time efficiently and give your best shot. You wouldn’t waste a single second, especially if it is your final written examination in one of your major subjects. Of course, you don’t want to receive a failing mark. Same goes with renting a PC in a computer shop, you wouldn’t want to waste any single coin, I guess. Also with cooking, you will surely like a food that is wellcooked to have its perfect taste. Even a smart phone has its own timer –its battery that you can only consume based on its lifespan. Having a timer within you will be of great help, but it can also cause self-frustration and exhaustion. Imagine your actions are being calculated based on a given time frame. A human robot, can I quip? Well, people must be blessed for having a “free time”. Stopwatch. What if some random individual gives you a card containing the records of time you spent the whole day. “You consumed 3 hours and 40 minutes watching television, you used up 2 ½ hours eating and chit-chatting with your family and friends, you spent an hour for you books while the remaining hours were spent on playing mobile games and some hygiene stuff.“ This may be surreal but if this happens, I guess you will feel uneasy

not understand fully? Even if it may all seem to be too much of a burden, our very mind forces upon us the will to live and this bypasses the very rule that unites the jungle: stating that only those who become predators can thrive in the Earth’s Eden. Over the decade, various animal rights activists have done efforts to “preserve” the lives of the said creatures, but the severity of acts done by some of these organizations fall to the league of insanity. Mustered Hatred, Fell in Void It is a common tradition for families to serve up the most exquisite cuisine they could muster, and what more than an epitome of lusciousness to fill in the stomachs of those flesh eaters who think nothing about the origins of that hunk of meat which crumble inside their mouths as they lash out a series of satisfying bites for which they view only as a way to fulfill their individual needs. Litanies for a Fatal Upset This premise houses two carefully created passages deliberately formed

about it. At first, you will feel regretful for not being so productive throughout the day. Then the next thing will be self-reassuring. You will encourage yourself to be back on track the next day. It’s merely a cycle, isn’t it? We also have our own stopwatch in our own minds. We tend to compute our time usage for the day and then regret some part for not using it properly. Alarm Clock. Consider your alarm clock as your job opportunities or academic excellence. It buzzes around 5 in the morning but you clicked “snooze.” You were heavy-eyed that you chose to take a 15-minute doze. However, you did not charge your battery last night. The alarm rings but you repeatedly pressed “snooze” until the battery went off. After 3 hours you woke up, you find yourself irritated because your mother did not wake you up and you’re already an hour late for work or school. Then you started wishing you are living in a different time zone. Or worst, you will have thought of never waking up at all. The snoozes serve as your chances of get yourself out from bed but you chose comfort. Sometimes, we chose to indulge in the idea of luxury, disregarding what really are more important, be it health, occasions or the time itself. What if there’s a random individual telling you that you only have a day to live? As for me, I will probably burst into tears for not perfectly living my life. At some point, we must disclose our own deferrals and short-comings. We can say that we have our own time zones, “You are not late nor early. You are just on time,” but what if you become reliant to these uplifting notes, without giving so much action for your objectives. I may not know what the future holds but I can make decisions that can affect it. We have our own daily trains of thoughts. Feed your mind with the idea that great things don’t dwell in your comfort zone. You may not know what’s waiting for you but you can make decisions that can affect it.

Time is powerful. So are you to unhinge one’s outlook over the lesser creatures that we share our world with. Animals are humane too, in fact more so than humans. If for a single speck of life it is tingled, then a beastly soul is more than enough to be considered more precious. Innocence coincides with barbarism; a fated soul will surely collapse if even a single disruption in the harmony occurs. Sanctity in Hu m a n k i n d ’s Abandonment Premonitions of a distant future entail a great collapse in a world where the presence of wildlife is coming close to extinction. Theories that lead to unrelenting population explosion may reflexively cease the natural propagation in the wild. This, as wretched as it may be, will head towards a path wherein the thought of piousness is just a palpable insignia on the surface of a manuscript molded to serve as a fabricated truth for all of humankind’s imprudence.

Disappointments and setbacks

I’m pretty sure that there are certain parts of your life in which you felt that there is something holding you back, preventing you from achieving your goals. Have you felt this way before? Before going to college, you had your life ahead of you; you already planned what career you are going to pursue based on your skills and interests. This decision was made due to acquired knowledge from different sources which we obtained throughout time. Usually, we are able to manage our lives this way. However, it occurs to us that we may come up against a situation which we are not able to discern or solve. We often ask why this happens. After all, as stated from an article regarding mental block, if we were to see the exact same problem in

another person, we would, in most cases, be able to suggest a solution. So why, when it happens to us, do we suddenly feel blocked and unable to find the way to solve the problem. Looking back, you were so sure of everything –however, right now you have this feeling that you failed to excel in this particular field. Not because you lack the skills, but because you think you ought to achieve perfection. Or there was an instance wherein you studied hard for an upcoming quiz only to discover that your score did not even make it to the average. You see, disappointments and setbacks enter pretty quickly when you are at this vulnerable stage of doubting you self especially your capabilities. You

Beneath the Surface

Globalism is a fundamental shift in human history; dangerous to ignore, even futile to resist. With the rapid advancement of technology, people seem dependent on how they will spend their day. They focus on things that are just one click away, overlooking some pieces of reality. But it's not a bad change after all. Sometimes an entity becomes beautiful when you really look, like peeling off a message from Pablo Picasso's paintings. These days, humanity couldn't realize that they observe only to criticize - only to escape transformation. An important issue today is that, the animation industry, being one of the most influential types of entertainment, is treated as cheap rather than an artform. They say

that companies often produce shows as a way to get it out quickly with minimal effort and sensibility. Is it an artform, anyway? Yes! It is an art that can be used to promote social discourse of the ideas of time through series of drawings or photographs, blended with computer graphics and voice talents. Then how come it is now addressed as low-end business? Consideration of ethical aspects are what made this issue expounded. It is supposed to amuse children yet in recent years, TV stations have been producing animation series for teenagers and adults that are too edgy to watch. As a result, it is starting to become oversaturated and

How are you feeling today? Did you see the sunrise? Were you able to hang out with your friends? Do you have any plans for tomorrow? The day after and the days to come? Little conversations with simple questions entail deep meanings. At times, people tend to forget things to look forward to because of the anxiety they feel and the pressure they endure. This

situation is common for college students, who experience a whole-day schedule of multiple classes with extra-curricular activities. During my second year college as a transferee, I always felt out-of-place. So, I tried to walk through the straight and narrow path of mediocrity. Then, my routine became a cliché—school, study, home, paper works, projects and exams.

lose your assertiveness. According to Galamind.com, when the time comes that you felt something inside of you holding you back and preventing you from achieving your goals –external factors are easy to identify, but identifying and overcoming a mental blockage is far more difficult. Breaking down the mental barriers of our subconscious is no easy task. Many turn to therapy in order to discover the mental barriers that are holding them back and causing them pain. With this said, Gala has featured applications that can help people determine those areas that are restraining them to achieve excellence and satisfaction. When it comes to performance, and they suggest specific actions one can execute in order to break down those internal barriers: 1) Painful or difficult unresolved experiences which we have buried deep in our consciousness. When we undergo a difficult experience such as a failure or defeat, all of our cells remember the experience and, when a similar situation occurs, the cells rebroadcast the previous experience. This causes us to create a protective system which shuts down our ability to deal with the present situation and, in effect, creates a mental block; 2) Lack of knowledge and experience creates lack of confidence. In order to overcome

with little respect, repeatedly seen as tiny creative design. "Every studio can get the work done cheaper now. It is a long-margin business, because everybody is bidding against one another.” Reflecting on what Steve Hulett (former Disney animation writer) said, it is also one of the reasons why this genre does not move forward; some are just producing shows for money, excluding qualities that should be an ineffable measurement. Knowing that animation is not an easy process, they are as stubborn as waiting for their payslips. They disagree with the writers' ideas, changing a young lady with pert breasts to a frumpy old woman to finish the job. Looking beyond those exaggerated characters and incomprehensible dialogues, however, lies a demanding appreciation for hardwork. You cannot deny that animators offer their artworks not to boast their skills, but to instruct us to peek beneath our sheets. You cannot tell if it is us that manipulate them or the other way around. You cannot say that all of them are forced to draw the minions or to sketch Doraemon. You cannot ignore that they somehow, probably totally, captured your inner void. At the heart of any studio is its people. A show wouldn't be popular if it isn't worth

To escapefrom the lingering monotony, I drowned myself into watching American TV series and anime, reading manga and poetries, and above all, writing. Somehow, I feel at ease whenever I enter the realm of exhilarating plots and clever words. For a change, I even tried doing several stuff like joining the CPE Dynamites (raise your hands!), running for the Department Student Council (which is uncalled for) and applying for the school publication. I may have met colleagues along the way; still, the happiness it brought was all spur of the moment. Until the day came, small matters don’t affect me anymore. An anonymous voice whispered to my ears and urged me, “Give yourself a break, breathe, slow down and have fun. Spend time with your friends. College is a one-shot, unforgettable journey.” Being left behind meant much to me, but that’s a story from the past. Personally, I agree with what Confucius

this type of mental blockage we need to evaluate our abilities and our weaknesses. If we look at an accident, something that we may not have experienced in the past, then we need to try and release ourselves from the trauma which creates the mental blockage; 3) Fear of the unknown creates paralysis and incapability to cope. Fear is a state which prevents the individual from functioning properly and appropriately. People begin to react out of the very basic levels of their survival instincts instead of using their mental capabilities. That is why, in order to cope and release a fear based on a mental blockage, paralysis or an inability to cope, we need to neutralize at least one of the fear factors. These mental barriers existed from a number of reasons which are stated above. Our minds, are the forces behind everything that we do in our lives, they are the ones we depend on in trying to achieve the best when it comes to everything we do. It is true enough that we sometimes suffer from emotional barriers and blockages but if we think it through, emotional barriers can only be created if mental barriers existed first. That’s why it is essential to keep our focus on our main goals no matter how much disappointments we encounter.

viewing and not all of it is accountable for criticism. There are still directors and screenwriters that give extraordinary effort to simply fancy the crowd while laughing and crying at their products' roles. There are still people who dream to create their own craft like Hayao Miyazaki's "Spirited Away" and Bud Luckey's "The Incredibles". There is still hope for Filipinos who can excel in this field, like what Bobby Pontillas did in “Wreck it Ralph" and "Frozen". We simply don't recognize that being an animator is also being and artist. The swift adaptation of technology can make you change whatever you want to diversify. And you shouldn't just advance to reverse what others have perfected during their time. You must separately discharge from the society's judgment and plug yourself to the world where everything is acknowledged. This is naturally one of the effects of globalization, letting the public discern conditions based on their neighbors' perspectives. Nothing is cheap nor useless, it’s a matter of toleration on who or what can influence you. Hence, if you are still in doubt of becoming what you want to be, you are still stuck in the chain of civil stagnation. You are in the zone of underside phenomenon. It is still your choice, anyway. Just don't forget to look closely- to look deeper.

said, “Do something you love, and you will not have to work for it with the rest of your life.” “College is boring and taxing”, is what I’d probably say before, but that changed by the time I found the ‘reason’ why my fate has diverted its gaze. Looking at the brighter side, the challenges played big part in my development as a person and helped me get a hold of the best out of my mistakes and wrong decisions. Just like what Ging Freecs said to his son Gon in the finale of Hunter X Hunter,” You should enjoy the little detours to the fullest. Because that’s where you will find the things more important than what you want.”

TIP OF THE PEN Spending four years in T.I.P. has been a roller coaster ride. When I entered my fist year, I was one of the Engr. Demeterio Qurino (EDQ) scholarship grantees. I did not imagine that I would be part of it. By then, I have joined a lot of competitions like English and Mathematics quiz bees, but I never won first place. Instead of losing hope, I made it as an opportunity to become better and made myself enjoy the experience of representing my department. I was enjoying my college journey so far until I reached the second semester of my third year. On this year, I’ve faced one of the biggest struggles in my student life which is losing my scholarship. The day I knew about it, I really felt down. I had never imagined how painful it is. You’ll never know what you have until you lose it. It’s true! However, I did not let the pain conquer me. I never stopped studying hard; never stopped giving my best in every project; and never stopped fulfilling my dreams to be an engineer. During summer, I joined the NASA Space Apps Challenge. It’s a hackathon where it would require you to solve real life challenges that could help change the world. This competition was so challenging for me but I want to grow each year. I want to engage and share my ideas to address problems and provide solutions. Luckily, our team won as Best Use of Hardware and People’s Choice Award. Our team is also one of the 3 finalists that would represent the country to battle out in other countries. Even though we did not win, at least, I know for a fact that these were small steps to becoming an engineer who will provide solutions for various problems of the society.

When a door closes, another one opens. I proved this time when I reached 4th year for I became a Gokongwei Brothers Foundation scholar. God has His own ways of giving what your heart desires. During the first semester, Technopreneurship course has been introduced to us. Some would say, “Why would I take it? I won’t be into business, anyway.” For me, this was an opportunity to develop my skills both in technology and entrepreneurship. I would not just get to solve problems and provide solutions but also make money from it. How good can it be? I never knew that being a problem solver would be this cool. When I reached the second semester, I was part of the team who represented the school and the country. Our team battled other Southeast Asian countries on the first Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) makerthon. I was lucky to be one of the pioneers of it. I had a tough schedule and had to fulfill the requirements while preparing for the contest. It has been a great sacrifice for me but nothing’s hard if you want something, right? Some participants were the winners of their local makerthon. At first, I felt intimidated by them, but our department chair reminded us to use this opportunity to widen our network. I’d never thought that I would be talking to different kinds of people from other countries regarding their projects, problems, and solutions. All of my sacrifices are worth it. I will be forever grateful to T.I.P. for letting me represent the school, and our country. Let me take this opportunity also to let my voice be heard so that I can be an inspiration to for students to engage in these activities to develop their skills. I may have started my journey but, it’s never too late to start yours too. Always remember that we can be problem solvers, innovators, and life long learners. Heads to a fruitful journey to everyone!
