QUOTES FROM TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN

The matrix of leadership is not found; it is earned.

-o-O-o-

Optimus Prime: Fate rarely calls upon us at a moment of our choosing.

-o-O-o-

Optimus Prime: With the All Spark gone, we cannot return life to our planet. And fate has yielded its reward: a new world to call home. We live among its people now, hiding in plain sight, but watching over them in secret, waiting, protecting. I have witnessed their capacity for courage, and though we are worlds apart, like us, there's more to them than meets the eye. I am Optimus Prime, and I send this message to any surviving Autobots taking refuge among the stars. We are here. We are waiting.

-o-O-o-

I am Optimus Prime, and I send this message so that our past will always be remembered. For in those memories, we live on.

DOH LIFTS FLU CONTROLS

First Posted 03:35:00 06/28/2009


MANILA, Philippines—The days of self-quarantine are over.

Instead, the Department of Health (DoH) called for “responsible self-monitoring,” saying: “Travelers shall monitor [themselves] for 10 days after arrival, observe for signs and symptoms of influenza-like illness and submit to DoH national guidelines if [these symptoms develop].”

Nearly two months since it went on overdrive to address the entry of the Influenza A(H1N1) virus, the DoH has begun to ease up on control measures against what it described as a generally mild flu strain.

Health Secretary Francisco Duque III announced in a memorandum dated June 24 “major policy changes from containment to mitigation response to the Influenza A(H1N1) outbreak in the country.”

Under the new Interim Guideline No. 16, travelers arriving from countries with reported A(H1N1) cases no longer have to observe home quarantine before they return to their schools or workplaces.

The DoH had previously recommended home quarantine of up to 10 days for all newly arrived travelers regardless of whether they had flu-like symptoms or not.

As of Friday, the DoH had confirmed 861 flu cases. Of the number, 634 or 74 percent have recovered.

MALUNGGAY PLANTING: SEASON 2 - THE MAIN EVENT

MALUNGGAY PLANTING: SEASON 2

Cluster 2, Level 4 student nurses willl have their chance to plant malunggay in Barangay Kalunasan tomorrow, June 27, 2009. UC Nursing CESDEV has already made a request duly approved by the Officer in Charge of Kalunasan Elementary School allowing the student nurses to put up a Malunggay Nursery inside the premises of the school. These seedlings will be strategically planted in areas within the school once these are ready for transplantation. The remaining malunggay seedlings will be distributed to the elementary school students who will be bringing at least one seedling a day after dismissal of classes so they could plant malunggay in their own backyard. It is hoped that this mechanism of implementation will further realize the objective of UC Nursing CESDEV to have a "Kamunggayan sa Kalunasan" to combat malnutrition in the baranggay.

YOUNG CEBUANOS REGISTER AS BOTO PATROLLERS

CEBU CITY-- More than one hundred Cebuanos lined up at the University of the Philippines Cebu Campus to become Boto Patrollers of Boto Mo, Ipatrol Mo, Ako Ang Simula a project of ABS-CBN Broadcasting Corp. to ensure a clean and honest 2010 elections by mobilizing Filipinos to protect their votes.

As early as 8 a.m., representatives from the youth sector, businessmen and concerned individuals filled out the Boto Patroller Information Sheet and affixed their thumbmark as a sign of commitment to protect votes in the upcoming elections.

Atty. Lionel Castilliano, Cebu Provincial Election Supervisor, was present during the activity and gave a free seminar for first-time voters. Castilliano said, the youth sector has a huge role in the upcoming elections as they compose the majority of Filipino voters. He added that an informed voter will vote based on credentials and not through popularity. "You have to make the right choice and never let those traditional politicians fool you," said Castilliano. He also gave some pointers for first-time voters such as the need to provide an identification card when registering with the Commission on Elections.

The Boto Mo Ipatrol Mo booth at the University of the Philippines catered to more than 100 students from the University of Cebu, University of San Jose Recoletos, University of the Philippines and University of the Visayas.

BOTO MO, IPATROL MO: AKO ANG SIMULA


You are powerful. You will make a difference. If we all come together now, we will reach the tipping point when change becomes inevitable and irreversible. These are the ideas behind Boto Mo, I-Patrol Mo: Ako ang Simula, and there is no better time than now.


The times are changing, and we are keeping pace. Millions of Filipinos are taking part in our efforts through traditional media, but new media gives a chance for immediate feedback and action. That is changing societies globally, and it is happening here. There are so many inspirational moments in the past month and a half – moments of yearning, anger, joy and tremendous patience from thousands of Filipinos waiting hours in lines – to register and vote, to become a boto patroller.


UC Nursing CESDEV volunteers are part of this powerful human machines that will make change possible.


HAPPY BIRTHDAY, CHINKY!

A(H1N1) UPDATE

Health Secretary Francisco T. Duque III today reported that 15 more fully recovered A (H1N1) cases were already sent home. The total number of recovered cases is now 262 while the total count of positive cases remains at 344 (as reported yesterday).

“All of these 344 confirmed cases were mild in nature, both those who are currently under treatment and those who have been sent home,” Duque said. “Although it is true that for now the novel virus seemed to be causing only mild illness, we still should not be too complacent and let our guard down. We should continue to be vigilant as we, in the government, continue to monitor if there are any changes in its trends and patterns,” Duque stressed.

Duque also said that most of the 344 confirmed cases are from Metro Manila (National Capital Region) with 234 (68%), Central Luzon (Region III) with 45 (13%), and CALABARZON (Region IV-A) with 31 (9%).Duque also noted that in the National Capital Region, most cases came from Quezon City (81 or 34%), Manila (44 or 18%), Parañaque (21 or 9%) and Makati (15 or 6%). Duque said the age range of these cases is from 1 to 76 years old, with 18 as the median age. He also said that most of the cases belonged to the 15-24 years age group (171 or 50%). He said that majority of cases were male (187 or 54.4%).

CESDEV GREETINGS TO DR. HELEN C. ESTRELLA

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DR. HELEN C. ESTRELLA!

“When I took up Nursing, my dream was to teach. When my parents convinced me to take up Nursing, I insisted on Education because that was my passion. But I realized my parents were right. I have the best of both worlds here. One, I was able to make it as a Nurse. Two, I get to fulfill my dream of becoming a Teacher which is relatively fulfilling as of this time.

I know everybody goes abroad because of the very pleasant scenario, but if I’d go out of the country, if God permits, that would be to avail myself of scholarship grants and taking sabbatical leaves for that matter. My experience with UC and the country in teaching the beginners is incomparably satisfying.”

TO SERVE AND NOT TO BE SERVED

Jesus called them together and said, "You know that those who are regarded as rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their high officials exercise authority over them. Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be slave of all. For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.
Mark 10:43-45

MISS NURSING 2009 REGINE CENIZA JOINS CESDEV VOLUNTEERS IN PLANTING TREES


Return to a land called Paraiso
A place where a dying river ends
No birds there fly over Paraiso
No space allows them to endure

The smoke that screens the air
The grass that's never there
And if I could see a single bird, what a joy
I try to write some words and create a single song
To be heard by the rest of the world

I live in this land called Paraiso
In a house made of cardboard floors and walls
I learned to be free in Paraiso
Free to claim anything I see

Matching rags for my clothes
Plastic bags for the cold.
And if empty cans were all I have, what a joy
I never fight to take someone else's coins
And live with fear like the rest of the boys

Paraiso, help me make a stand
Paraiso, take me by the hand
Paraiso, make the world understand
That if I could see a single bird, what a joy
This tired and hungry land could expect
Some truth and hope and respect
from the rest of the world

("Paraiso" by Lea Salonga)

NOEL's PHOTOSHOOT


OF HEAVEN AND HELL ...

A man was having a conversation with God one day and said, 'God, I would like to know what Heaven and Hell are like.' God led the holy man to two doors. He opened one of the doors and the holy man looked in.

In the middle of the room was a large round table. In the middle of the table was a large pot of stew, which smelled delicious and made the holy man's mouth water. The people sitting around the table were thin and sickly. They appeared to be famished. They were holding spoons with very long handles, that were strapped to their arms and each found it impossible to reach into the pot of stew and take a spoonful. But because the handle was longer than their arms, they could not get the spoons back into their mouths. The holy man shuddered at the sight of their misery and suffering.

God said, 'Now you have seen Hell.' They went to the next room and opened the door. It was exactly the same as the first one. There was the large round table with the large pot of stew which made the holy man's mouth water. The people were equipped with the same long-handled spoons, but here the people were well nourished and plump, laughing and talking.

The holy man said, 'I don't understand.....' 'It is simple,' said God. 'It requires but one skill. You see they have learned to feed each other, while the greedy think only of themselves.'

CERTIFICATES FOR THE GREEN THUMBS

video

green thumb

n. An extraordinary ability to make plants grow well.

Either its origin is linked to the reign of King Edward I of England, who enjoyed fresh green peas so much that he had half a dozen serfs working to keep him supplied, a prize going to the one with the greenest thumb, presumably from hours of shelling; or it comes from the fact that repeatedly handling clay pots encrusted with algae will stain a gardener's thumb (and probably fingers) green.

INDEPENDENCE DAY 2009: MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT

In the afternoon of 12 June 1898 in the town of Cavite-Viejo, Filipinos gathered at the residence of General Emilio Aguinaldo to witness the first Philippine national flag unfurl as the San Francisco de Malabon Band played the Lupang Hinirang.

Reciting the Declaration of Philippine Independence, our people promised to support freedom “with our lives, our fortunes, and with our sacred possession - our honor.”

“Kagitingan, Kagalingan at Kasipagan Tungo sa Tunay na Kalayaan”, this year’s Independence Day theme reminds us that, indeed, freedom is not bestowed. It is something that we must together achieve.

A(H1N1) SEMINAR and UPDATES





The Philippines’ influenza A(H1N1) tally inched closer to the 100th mark on Thursday as 15 new confirmed cases brought the country’s total to 92. But the Department of Health stressed that almost one-third of these patients have since recovered from the ailment. Health Secretary Francisco Duque III made the announcement at a regular briefing at the Department of Health (DOH) office. He said the latest batch of confirmed cases were all Filipinos, 10 males and five females, and all are mild ones. He said four of the new cases have a history of travel to the United States, Mexico, Japan and Singapore — countries that also have confirmed cases.

“We stress that there is still no community level transmission, that is why we are still in the containment stage," he said.

DOH briefings have been trimmed down from daily to just twice a week to prevent public fear over the new strain of flu. The department is preparing for the next stage in preventing the spread of the disease – the mitigation process where early detection is given more priority than contact tracing.

“During mitigation, the government will work closely with the World Health Organization to exchange information about the virus in our country to help us understand how the virus is evolving," Duque said.

In the WHO’s latest update, 27,737 cases from 74 countries have been recorded since the new flu strain was reported in April, with 141 deaths. As the figures continue to go up, WHO officials have indicated that they are on the verge of declaring a global Pandemic Alert Level 6, the first in more than 40 years.

Duque appealed to all schools nationwide to continue coordinating with their respective local governments whenever they receive reports of students developing flu-like symptoms. Since May 1, the DOH has tested 698 people for the virus. A total of 562 tested negative while 44 suspected cases have pending laboratory results. (GMANews.TV)
University of Cebu did its share in the mitigation process by orienting the faculty and staff on A(H1N1) virus through a seminar conducted by selected clinical instructors. The clinical instructors who served as resource speakers shared what they have learned from a seminar they have previously attended sponsored by the Philippine Nurses Association.

THE EXAM IS OVER ... THE WAITING STARTS

CESDEV BOARD OPS

Ooops! The date in the digital camera was not set. These pictrures were taken last June 6, 2009 before the nursing graduates of UC took the Philippine Nursing Licensure Examinations.

The term "Board Ops" is inspired from what is commonly practiced by law schools in the Philippines called “Bar Ops” - a practice that is intended to boost the morale and confidence of examination takers. The show of support is displayed prominently to alleviate the increasing anxiety and to make the examinees feel that we share and take part in the challenge that they will be facing.

UC Nursing CESDEV encouraged its volunteers to participate in the "Board Ops" for the College of Nursing of UC for its examinees in the June 2009 PNLE. This activity is geared towards not only boosting the morale of the examinees but also to provide the CESDEV volunteers a glimpse of what actually transpires during the nursing board examination hoping that they will be better prepared when their time to take the PNLE comes.

CONGRATULATIONS CESDEV VOLUNTEERS!

OPENING OF CLASSES POSTPONED

The Commission on Higher Education yesterday announced the postponement of school opening in all colleges and universities from June 8 to June 15 as a precautionary measure against the spread of the Influenza A(H1N1) virus.

But the order applies only to classes in the college level since the Department of Education did not match the CHED order with a similar order that would have also reset the opening of Classes in private elementary and high schools already set for June 8. DepEd undersecretary for regional operations Ramon Bacani told The Freeman any decision to postpone the opening of classes in private elementary and high schools will be at the discretion of the managements of these schools.

“It will be at the discretion of their managements if they wish to postpone classes following CHED order. There is no problem if these colleges and universities decide to also postpone the opening of their secondary and elementary divisions because they are allowed to do so, provided they are able to comply with the required number of schooldays which is 210 for the entire school year,” Bacani said.

The CHED said the one-week postponement of classes in the college level would allow students coming from abroad to self-quarantine themselves in face of the global threat of the swine flu, said CHED secretary Emmanuel Angeles. Many foreign students studying in the Philippines are still coming in. Some of them come from countries where there are confirmed A(H1N1) cases, thus the rescheduling of the class opening will give them time to self-quarantine,” Angeles said.

The postponement will also allow colleges and universities to extend enrollment, thereby allowing “financially-handicapped” parents to raise money to enroll their children.
CHED regional director Candelario Aytona confirmed receiving the postponement order by phone call yesterday.

He said that as mandated by the tertiary education secretary, the postponement is applicable to all 159 colleges and universities in Cebu and the rest of Central Visayas. He assured, however, that the postponement will have no significant effect on the quality of education.

DepEd regional director Recaredo Borgonia said he will not order the postponement of classes in private elementary and high schools but will leave it to the discretion of the administrators of these schools.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DAWN!

CESDEV IS BEHIND YOU ...

Dear God
Today I will take my examination
which is so important to me.
Though I am nervous, I am not afraid
Because I know that as I write my answers
It is YOUR hands that work.
And now, as I take this examination
Please enlighten my mind
to be able to answer correctly
And to recall everything that I have studied.
I will do my best in this exam and to you God
I will entrust my fate
I know that whatever will be the result,
it is according to YOUR will.
YOU have watched me
As I worked hard to study for this exam
Although I don't feel very confident
And I don't know if I am prepared
I truly believe that YOU
would give me what I deserve.
I deserve to pass this exam, God.
I am happy that today YOU are with me
For with YOU I will win this battle
And as I close my eyes and feel YOUR presence
In this examination room
YOU put confidence to my heart.
AMEN.


THE NIGHTINGALE PLEDGE

The Nightingale Pledge is a traditional pledge that was taken by new nurses. It was composed by a committee chaired by Lystra Gretter, an instructor of nursing at the old Harper Hospital in Detroit, Michigan, and was first used by its graduating class in the spring of 1893.

THE NIGHTINGALE PLEDGE
I solemnly pledge myself before God
and presence of this assembly;
To pass my life in purity
and to practice my profession faithfully.
I will abstain from whatever
is deleterious and mischievous
and will not take or knowingly administer
any harmful drug.
I will do all in my power to maintain and elevate
the standard of my profession
and will hold in confidence all personal matters
committed to my keeping
and family affairs coming to my knowledge
in the practice of my calling.
With loyalty will I endeavor
to aid the physician in his work,
and devote myself to the welfare
of those committed to my care.

LINES FROM THE LADY WITH THE LAMP

FLORENCE NIGHTINGALE

Florence Nightingale (1820-1910), considered the founder of educated and scientific nursing and widely known as "The Lady with the Lamp"[1], wrote the first nursing notes that became the basis of nursing practice and research. The notes, entitled Notes on Nursing: What it is, What is not (1860), listed some of her theories that have served as foundations of nursing practice in various settings, including the succeeding conceptual frameworks and theories in the field of nursing.[2] Nightingale is considered the first nursing theorist. One of her theories was the Environmental Theory, which incorporated the restoration of the usual health status of the nurse's clients into the delivery of health care—it is still practiced today.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, SANZ!



DO AS I HAVE DONE TO YOU ...

If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; ye also ought to wash one another's feet. For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you.
