College student shifts to SHS by dʒiːn Salgados "Let it be stated in the record that the *!%£ are mad," stated Zayn Malik Asparagus after VPAA Dr. Larl Jade Cleopatra ruled out that college students can legally shift to Senior High School on the condition of regressing levels of maturity. Dr. Cleopatra said in an interview that “There [is] no reason that we shouldn’t allow students to accommodate themselves to their preferred company. Maturity is an important factor when it comes to education.” Prominent critics from DepEnDme and CHEDdar blasted Larl for allowing “absolutely disgusting decisions to be made with little legal counsel.” “This is absolutely outrageous,” said Dr. Evanescence M. Luminescence in a conference regarding education ethics last October 8 at DepEndme Division Office. Evanescence is part of the long list of officials that are against Yarl’s divisive statement. Despite drawing flak, the decision also garnered praise from SU President Better McCant. “A surprise, to be sure, but a welcome one,” she said with enthusiasm after the concluded conference. The full written statement cited, aside from regressing maturity, increasing needs to feed ego with clout, and revival one’s potential as credible reasons to shift back to SHS. “Okay lang man saakon na skwelahan ko liwat ang Oral Comm, [I have no problem taking up Oral Com again]” Zayn said when asked about retaking previous classes. “Kaso, ang problema abi kay ang mga maistra ko.[The only problem are the teachers]” Zayn Malik Asparagus will be the very first college student to shift to SHS next June 2020. The choice to shift for other college students will be available effective 2nd semester of A.Y. 2020-2021

SU to shift academic calendar, school year to start on August by Henrie Omaga Diaz

SILLIMAN UNIVERSITY (SU), through its memo issued last Oct. 7, announces its plan to implement the new academic calendar. The shift is in light of the new CHED memorandum in which all schools should abide uniform school calendars. According to SU President Dr.

Students Petition to change “Silliman” to “Silliperson” for Gender Equality by Daddy Dan EARLIER THIS WEEK, outraged students from varied colleges filed a petition to change the name of Silliman University to Silliperson University in order to advocate for gender neutrality. When two students discovered

the implication in Silli”man”, they immediately began to peacefully protest outside the school. They quickly garnered support after a random passerby posted on social media. However, they shrugged off interviews and other journalists offering no comment other than, “We are here to protest that ‘Silliman’ should be

Better McCant, “The university would like to follow other universities' academic calendar because I have been receiving complaints from students here about the inconvenience of the current calendar." For the longest time, SU begins its classes in June and ends in March. This includes all departments elementary, junior high, senior high, and college.

How are they going to implement the new change? This is one of the top concerns regarding the change of school dates. Dr. Larl Jade Cleopatra, Dean of Academic Affairs, proposed the idea that students and the admin should work closely together for an easy transition. What would happen during Founder’s Day and Hibalag? A lot

of students are scratching their heads trying to grasp the situation. Dr. Cleopatra, urges students to stop worrying since there would still be a Founder’s Day and Hibalag that would take place. “We can never take away the spirit of Founder’s Day, which is

‘Silliperson’ to make sure there are no implications that it is a maledominated university.” They then filed a formal protest later this week. Thanos, an inhabitant of the planet Titan, made a statement upon visiting the prestigious university. “This school does not put a smile on my face. There is no balance among its constituents. If I were to rule this place, there should be no discrimination between male and female. Each should be treated equally. I will pledge my armies and my support

to change the name of this university.” However, when asked what he would do to show his support he simply waved his gauntlet and disappeared into a space rift. In another interview, Batman stated that this argument proves no point and has no basis. “Silliman is a surname. It does not implicate any gender identity or sexual orientation.”Then, the masked vigilante gave no further comments. However, Batgirl and Robin did not share his views by saying that they had

to work together. “One team, one goal. Our time is now. We must stand firm in our advocacy,” added Robin. We, the sovereign Filipino people, imploring the aid of Almighty God, in order to build a just and humane society, and establish a Government that shall embody our ideals and aspirations, promote the common good, conserve and develop our patrimony, and

the weekly sillimanian October 11, 2019


Why So Serious? The 2019 version of the Joker produced and directed by Todd Phillips proved too much to bear. It was rated Restricted–16 (R16) by the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB) but even then many people decided to walk out of the cinema with the world on their shoulders. With this in mind, it has sparked major controversy whether or not the next generations would mimic or copy the horrors found on the screen. The drama-thriller shows the perspective of the madman and his journey to insanity. It even depicted the brutal death of Batman, an iconic superhero in the same comic universe as the Joker. It even showed the mutilation of Batman’s body as well as the deaths of Robin and Batgirl; both sidekicks of Batman. tWS believes that the restriction is too low and may increase the risk of copycats that would perform such deeds. We also believe that this may present the wrong message to the public. Do we tolerate the brutality and mutilation of a person? Do we become apologists for terrorists because of the injustice they’ve received?

異文化交流 世界のニュースを見ると、世界情 勢の不安や民族間における争い、 政治、経済の面においての国々の 対立などが起きている。国や民族と いう壁によって人々に愛国心が生ま れる一方で反対に敵対心が生まれ ることにより、同じ地球市民でもにら み合ってしまう現状があるのだ。 そのため、異文化交流というもの はまさに私たち地球市民にとって非 常に大切な意味をもつのである。 現在、日本で開催されているラグ ビーワールドカップ2019の様子を例 に挙げよう。 各国の選手たちは日本式でこの 試合全般を楽しみ、日本側は他国 の文化に敬意を表す行動をとってい て、お互い異文化を楽しんでいる様 子が伺える。 浴衣にハチマキ姿でチームバス から降りて来たり、試合後には深々 と頭を下げて観客席にお辞儀をす るなど、選手たちは皆すっかり日本 の文化に染まってこの大会を楽しん でいる。 特に、ニュージーランドやイングラ

着たり、その国の国歌を大合唱した り、オールブラックが来日した際に は日本の子どもたちがニュージーラ ンドの先住民、マオリの民族舞踊「 ハカ」で選手らを歓迎するなどした。 また、日本代表のリーチマイケル 主将は初戦で戦ったロシアの選手 にプラスチック製の日本刀をプレゼ ントした。 彼らの間だけでなく、試合会場 全体でも日本文化の雰囲気を感じ られる。試合が始まる前の選手入 場時には和太鼓や拍子木が鳴り響 き、キックオフやハーフタイム、試合 終了時といった時間の切れ目には 歌舞伎や能のかけ声、銅鑼などが 使われたりしている。 こうした日本の試合会場でのおも てなし、尊敬は世界の人々に興味 関心を持たせ、また日本人以外の 人々もそれを理解して、お互い尊敬 し合うといった、どちらの国にとって も嬉しい異文化理解がなされている のである。

Silliman University ranks 1st in's listing of most attendees during weekends in Platha Ethcanyo Thiwoll. The survey was made through the "Students "FREE ENTRANCE FEE" gimmick by the different bars and clubs around Platha Ethcanyo Thiwoll. It was listed that Silliman University had the most number of regular attendees, counting around 150 hopefuls per hour. The ranking was computed based on the number of enrollees of the semester, duration of stay inside the bars and clubs, and the level of engagement during DJ's bass drops. Ranking 2nd on the list is Negres Uriental Thate Honiversity (NUrTHo), which presence was also very visible during the weekly events. In determination to reach the 1st place, NUrTHo will release an official statement regarding the ranking result. It is expected that NUrTHO will release a statement anytime during the month of October. In the meantime, Silliman University will continue to defend its position at the top, with the vision of defending the title in the next coming years.

by Mary Labucoolas Starbox is where all the cool kids go. You see them on Instagram, Twitter, or even on Facebook. Scoring more than 100 likes on their #StarboxLover #ILoveCoffee posts, they are the people everyone wants to be. In fact, they are who you want to be like, otherwise you wouldn’t be reading this statement right now. It’s not too late to be like them, don’t worry. All you have to do is follow these steps and you’ll be too cool to go to skskskskskschool. First, wear a branded outfit. Who cares if it’s thrifted or genuine? As long as the brand logo is visible, you’re good to go. Clashing colors? Unconventional and unfashionable? Who are they? The more brand logos, the better! Second, don’t forget to bring books or your laptop to give off the illusion that you’re there to be productive. Who are you kidding? You’re there to take pictures of your drink beside your school supplies and post them with the #productive and everyone knows that. It still looks cool to sigh dramatically and open your book

with your drink on the table, though. Before you get to Starbox, you have to practice on your language though. Purposely mix Bisaya and English words in order to achieve maximum conyo level. You can even go as far as alternating Bisaya and English words kada sentence kay it’s chada, see? Of course, you can’t be truly conyo without saying “bro “ and “bruh” and “sksksksksk” in every sentence. Don’t forget to “and I oop-“, too dudeparebro. Sksksksksk. Now that you’ve arrived at Starbox, hold your chin up and pretend to know where you’re going. You have to make people think you’re a regular because you’re cool, and cool kids only eat at Starbox. When in line, pretend to choose from the menu even if you know for a fact that you’re only going to order a tall mocha frappucino. Cool kid rule # 1 in Starbox: If it doesn’t have whipped cream, it’s not Instagram-worthy! Why bother ordering it? Once you get a table, dramatically put your school supplies on the table and take your phone out. Next, take abut 300 photos of your frappe in different

angles. Don’t forget to take selfies with it, too. You shudder at the taste of coffee because you don’t even drink coffee, but at least you look cool. You’re probably going to buy Coke at the store nearby later but for now, it’s time to look like you enjoy your frappucino. Post pictures of your frappucino on MyDay and IG story while geotagging the place. It is of utmost importance that you let people know you’re at Starbox. Otherwise, how else will they know how cool you are? When you’re done sipping and grimacing, leave without cleaning up because cool kids never learned to clean as they go. After all, when you’ve got no personality, replace it with a flex. “It’s their job to clean up”, you tell yourself. The last step to successfully climb the social ladder and achieve your full cool kid form is to tell everyone, and I mean *everyone*, about how good Starbox coffee is. Never shut up about it. Make it the only thing you talk about it. Engrave it on your headstone when you die. You’re a cool kid now. Congratulations, social climber.

And I do believe that psychiatry is one of the ways of answering the problems of the Filipinos, and I thank you!" Who is your inspiration? and why? "My inspiration is my loved ones. Seeing them happy and contented with what they have in their lives is already a heavenly feeling for me. They are my inspiration because they were there in times of the drawbacks I have experienced while I was still in medical school. Choosing Psychiatry as my vocation was the toughest decision I have ever made in life because it made see the world in a better view with fully calibrated eyes — and they [loved ones] made my journey more comfortable and easier." What is your greatest achievement in life? "The achievements I have in life is immeasurable. No one can fathom the feeling I have ever felt when I got these achievements — and the greatest among all of these were the smiles shared by the people I have helped. Seeing them smile after their treatment makes all the heavy shoulders I have lighten up. It makes me always go back to the very reason why I chose to become a Psychiatrist — and that is to do service." What is your greatest lesson in life? "I have actually learned a lot of lessons in life. What I actually learned in school was just 15-percent out of 100-percent learning I got in my whole life. As of now, the greatest lesson I learned is that

life is a rocky road. It is not the same with the popular ice cream flavor that brings sweetness to us. Instead, it is a bittersweet journey where no one can comprehend the very reason why we are experiencing it. I learned this lesson the hard way because of the financial limitations we had before — almost making me to stop becoming a Psychiatrist. This experience molded me into who I am today — strong to face life's adversaries" What is your message to the readers? "Never give up. That is the most important thing we need to do in achieving success. Someone may be talented but he or she may fail to achieve success if hard work does not come along with him or her. Aside from that, always seek help when you need one. Do not be afraid in doing that, especially if you are experiencing some mental health issues. Remember that some people may do harm to you but that is only a small percent compared to the people who will always ready to lend their hands. Look around you and you will see those people who are ready to go along with your journey in facing adversaries." Indeed, Twilight is a twilight — a light that takes over the darkness. A light that is ready to give a beautiful sight to almost darkening world — and a light that brings hope to the hopeless.

5 questions about Twilight Saga-Dy

by DayMayBalaKay She is like a star — ready to take over the darkness that engulfs the life of her loved ones. She is willing to endure the pain just for them to become at ease. She is Twilight — always ready to fight. Twilight Saga-Dy is a renowned doctor in the field of Psychiatry. She became known to all, not just the Dumaguetenos, but also to others who live outside Dumaguete. The once little girl with big ambitions of service is now a warrior — wearing a white gown ready to lend hands to the needy. The warrior we have right now is full of stories — and she is more than willing to share to us her stories of success. In order for us to know more about this incredible human bean, an interview was held by tWS last Oct. 4 during her visit on SO-PAP's Pear Counseling Seminar and Workshop at ATV2 Hall. These were asked during the said interview: What made you choose Psychiatry as your career? "It is because of me, myself, and I, ayown. Understanding people's psyche is a thing that we need to do because in that way, we can deal properly with the different mental health problems. It has always been my dream to always lend a hand to those who need comfort and understanding about their struggles in facing their mental health problems.

Mythical Creatures of Silliman: Supernatural beings are always fascinating, but these kinds of “creatures” are often seen around the campus.

The Undead

“Ghost”o kita


These creatures are rarely seen inside the classroom. They usually don’t appear all semester long but when they do, they turn up during finals week, leaving witnesses asking them “Oy buhi pa diay ka?”

Much like Poltergeists, they normally let their presence be felt by unsuspecting girls, enchanting them and luring them into their downfall. After a few weeks of charming them, they will go back to their ethereal realm. “Lain siya, chat-chat pa sya nako pero mang ghost ra diay,” said one victim.

These vehement creatures usually take the form of a normal human during broad daylight. But when night falls, they become the most aggressive and wild beings, bar none. Cryptozoologists say that these creatures are usually seen at Ikit and Cafe Razer every Friday night.

Students are both angry and happy for the new calendar. “Yes! 4 months of no classes #SUNewCalendar” one student posted on her Twitter account. Another person posted “The new change is kind of like that groupmate who doesn’t participate in the project - pointless.” Alumni also shared their reactions on social media. One person said “I understand the sentiments with what they [administration] are doing but this is absurd.” One person also added that: “It’s finally time to implement something like this just like in the [United] States #global #SUNewCalendar."

Intrams to introduce bare-knuckle boxing by Zi Ann Ambrosio This year’s intramurals will undergo a major change after the Sillaman University Athletics Department introduced bare-knuckle boxing as a new form of competition for this November’s event. Head of the SU Athletics Department, Miriam Machoow, said that the decision was made possible primarily to show that “Violence is the answer.” “Let’s say for example, a bully is trash talking to you about how you are a waste of oxygen then shows violent expressions, what would you do? You beat the living shit out of ‘em!” she said. The Athletics Department proposed that the event will take place either inside the president’s house, inside the SU café, inside Oriental Hall, or in front of the kiosks. Parts of their planned guidelines were; participants are either to be topless (male and female) or wear colourful costumes in the competition, first-aid will not be administered, and snacks will be provided to the audience and not to the participants. One Washington State University study found that bare-knuckle boxing is safer than gloved boxing. The study found that the highest generated level of bag momentum was found in the boxing glove, and a virtual indifference between the bare fists. According to Machoow, this competition will showcase the true spirit of a Sillimanian. Students are skeptic but also are hyped about the new competition. “This is insane! I don’t know what has gotten into her but I like it!” said Josw Polo Echaveszxc, head of the SUSkoG Sports and Recreation Committee. But Machoow remained unworried. “The strong will destroy the weak. It is none of my concern as to what will happen to the participants, as long as I will be enjoying watching the competition. We just have to be adventurous and try new things! This gonna be gooood,” she said.

Bas added that he doesn’t want to prioritize Ang Probinsyano, given Martin’s offer to stay until Season 30, because he has a lot on his plate – his studies and tWS. “I love Ma’am Bing,” he said. According to him, he might star in the series for the whole break and “I will think again

OrgASM hailed as most active org, COMSO confirms

by Jeck Ex-Battaliones SILLIMAN UNIVERSITY (SU) -- Organisasyon ng mga Animal Science Majors (OrgASM) was hailed as the most active academic organization for the first semester of school year 2019-2020, according to Cummittee on School Organization (CUMSO), in their latest statement released last Oct. 6.This is the first time that a newly established organization dethrones Silliman United Medical Students Association (SUMSA), who occupied the top spot for being the most active organization.

"OrgASM exceeded our expectations, we were surprised that in such a short time after their establishment, they were able to organize and participate in several activities that gave them massive points," says Al-khaleezer Ward, CUMSO Chairperson. OrgASM President, January Rivers, on the other hand said that they were glad to have accumulated massive points despite their lack of members and funds. "Since we have limited funding, we decided to sell double dead pork meat," says Rivers.

"Our pigs were stricken with African Swine Fever, and we thought we could make money out of selling its meat because the farm have already discarded those pigs," she added. When asked how did they managed to accumulate points in a short period, she replied, "We were not just participating events required by CUMSO. We also donated live animals to rice farmers who were affected by the Rice Tariffication Law. We want to help the rice farmers by giving them a new source of income." OrgASM Internal Vice-President, Roi Kamayan said he was surprised

SOFA lands partnership with Starbucks by ネイサン Cruz IN A HISTORIC MOVE, the American coffee giant Starbox has recently announced its plans to partner with the Silliman Overlords Fighting Alcoholism (SOFA) through their Facebook page. Starbox will now provide coffee and other drinks during the kapihan sessions of SOFA, held at Portal West every day at 4:20 p.m., and will also set up a booth there so passersby may order as well. According to Gerry Baldman, co-founder of Starbox, the partnership aims to send a message to the world by supporting the cause through assisting a grassroots organization. He added that they caught his attention since the opening of the first Starbox branch in Dumaguete. “I took some time off of my busy schedule for a vacation in the Philippines, and I thought that I might as well head over to Dumaguete since we were opening a new branch there. I was able to chat with some of the residents, and I stumbled upon the SOFA guys having coffee. I was enlightened, to say the least,” said

Baldman. Joanne Lynn-Te, the acting president of SOFA, said that although she lost a lot of brain cells during their conversation, she greatly welcomed the support in their quest to vanquish alcoholism. “[Baldman] approached us in the middle of a casual chat in the newly opened Starbox branch. I honestly wonder why he randomly came up, kicked one member out of his chair and asked us questions about American politics, Marxism, and the true meaning of the song, ‘Manok na Pula’. The man smelled like he didn’t shower in a week, though, so that must mean he’s important. All we wanted to do was to relax; buying just one Frappuccino here takes about a year’s salary,” Lynn-Te stated. She added that after mentioning that SOFA members gather outside Silliman to drink coffee and protest alcoholism, Baldman suggested to have Starbox sponsor them. “It’s free real estate,” Baldman said, “Why wouldn’t we take this opportunity? These guys need coffee because they have literally no money, and there is no better company for coffee than us. After

all, I have the greatest number of chromosomes out of anyone in the business.” SOFA According to Lynn-Te, SOFA was founded by frustrated teachers who discovered that students would not attend their classes because the students would always make the excuse that they allegedly got drunk. “It’s a very urgent problem. Somehow, for some reason, students would miss our classes to go to Hayayay, Café Razer, and Itik. It even got to the point that some fellow teachers would go to these places to drink and hold classes at the same time,” Lynn-Te said. Fearing the loss of their jobs, the teachers decided to band together and strike against alcoholism, sending a message that this problem will not be tolerated. Moreover, Lynn-Te advocated coffee over alcohol. “With coffee, you become productive. With alcohol, you get wasted … You tell me, which is better for students? Alcohol, of course! It’s the only one that drowns your sorrows away. But if you need to get things done, though, always go for coffee.

that CUMSO gave points on activities related to giving back. "It was a risky move for us. The farm management did not know that we donated three of their sickly cows to the rice farmers," he added. OrgASM disclosed that their future plan involves collaborating with the SU Envirocummittee on using carabaos as means of giving carbon-free ride to the Aggies students who are having a hard time getting a pedicab ride from the main campus to the SU Farm.
