Nonconventional Foods

Another way of solving the problem of food shortage is by using nonconventional source of food. As far as i know, Scientists and technologists continue their search for food sources that increase the world's food supply and improve human nutrition.

This table shows the amount of protein (in percent) found in lean pork, beef, chevon (goat meat), carabeef (carabao meat), rabbit meat.

Amount Of Protein Found in Meat

Pork ---> 17.90
Carabeef ---> 20.47*
Chevon ---> 20.29**
Rabbit ---> 19.7 to 21

*Average of three data sources
** Average of four data sources

Scientist and Technologists also study ways to get protein from leaves and from microorganisms that have been found yield adequate amounts of protein. Protein prepared from leaves is called leaf protein concentrate (LPC), and that from microorganisms is called single cell-protein (SCP). Yeast is other microorganisms are cultured to make SCP that is now used in food preparation. SCP can also be texturized like textured vegetable (TVP) or vegemeat. It can be combined with meat to make hamburger, hotdog, and sausage.

Traditionally, fermentation in soy sauce-making takes place from one to three hours and requires the standard room temperature 37 degree Celsius. However, recent studies have established that good quality soy sauce needs to be fermented for a month at 40 degree Celsius. Bacteria is needed in the fermentation process to breakdown substances. You know that Scientists used the salt tolerant lactic acid bacteria, Lactobacillus delbrueckii. They also discovered that monggo beans are good substitute for soya beans.

Plants Make Food

Unlike animals, plants themselves make the food they need through a process called photosynthesis. "Photo" means light. "Synthesis" means putting together. Photosynthesis means putting together using light.

The raw materials needed for the process are found in the environment. Water comes from the soil. Carbon dioxide is one of the gases in the atmosphere. Energy for putting together carbon dioxide and water comes from the sun.

Hey guys ! You know that Food is one of the basic needs in our life? Like Green plants are unique in the sense that can we manufacture their own food and, thus, supply the energy that they require. And you know how?

Because Energy is the defined as the capacity to do work. There are many different forms of energy - the light, chemical, mechanical, electrical and the nuclear. Energy can be transformed from one form to another. But where does energy come from? You know that the sun is our sole source of light energy. Chlorophyll containing plants convert light energy to chemical energy in the form of food (glucose) through the process of photosynthesis.

Special Gift

The whole Christmas story is filled with miracles,
like angelic visitations
and divine dreams,
which pale to insignificance
in light of the really big Miracle -
a virgin giving birth
to the son of God!

I cannot comprehend it,
it makes no sense to me.
How could the infinite, eternal God
become a tiny baby?
And not only how, but why?
Why would He choose to born to peasant parents?
Why would He empty Himself
of every advantage of His divine nature?
Why would He choose to become a servant
to the race He created?
Why would He humble Himself
and become a obedient to death,
even death on a cross?
This mystery is too great for me.
I cannot comprehend it,
I cannot explain it,
but I accept it!

For reasons,
which only His holy love can explain,
God chose to become one of us,
to suffer the consequences of our sin
in order to give birth to the miracle of forgiveness/
When I accept His holy love,
His gift of forgiveness,
a Christmas miracle happens in my own life.
My sinful past,
those selfish, hurtful acts,
those pieces of misplaced furniture
which separate me from those I love
and from God,
are suddenly gone and were are one!

Forgiveness does not change the past,
nothing can do that,
but it does something better,
it unlocks the future and that's the greatest miracle of all,
the ultimate miracle of Christmas.

Sacramental Moments

When you became with us
You did not come as a man,
but as a child.
the eternal Word,
the infinite God,
became a microscopic zygote
clinging to the wall of Mary's womb.
Through the miracle
and the mystery of life
You became a tiny fetus,
living for a few short months
in the warmth and safety
of Your mother's body.
Then you were born
and the mystery of Your life in the womb
was revealed for all the world to see.

From a babe in Mary's arms
You grew into a toddler,
a child.

By this, the act of incarnation,
You have forever given,
to every child,
a special dignity and worth.
You have made them
a living treasure,
a holy treasure.
Each and every child
is eternally precious.

Help us I pray,
as both parents and friends,
to be faithful stewards to these little ones.
May we nurture them
with Your unconditional love.
May we dicipline them
with your unerring faithfulness.
And may we train them
in Your eternal truth,
especially at Christmas time.
In Jesus name we pray.

The True Christmas Spirit

Deliver us from the spirit of consumerism,
from shopping lists,
full color catalogs,
and credit card purchases
which haunt us for the rest of the year.
Deliver us from empty cheer and seasons greetings
born of obligation,
sent with out meaning.
Deliver us from the whirl of social events
which supposedly honor Jesus' birth
but in reality are nothing more
than another desprate attempt
to coax some joy and meaning
into a life filled to the brim with busyness.
Surely Christmas is supposed to be more than this;
more than another round in bumper car existence:
"How are you doing?"
Bump, bump.

Tomas Pinpin

Tomas Pinpin was said to have been born in Barrio Mabantang, Abucay, Bataan. The approximate date of his birth was between 1580 and 1585.

Very little is known of his ancestry because of the loss of the parish records of Abucay.

Historians believed that Pinpin was of Chinese parentage. The basis which were his name, characteristics, business acumen and hardworking qualities.

In 1648, Pardo de Tavera claimed that a beautifully engraved book by a friar stated at the end. "Printed in the Office of Tomas Pin-pin."

It was presumed that he had a printing shop in Manila by that time and that he was the one engraving and printing books written by the Spanish friars.

It was presumed also that Pinpin taught the printer's trade to his son Simon. Pinpin was considered as the Prince of Filipino Printers.

There are no records of Tomas Pinpin after 1640. Historians could not determine the date when he passed away.

Jacinto Zamora

Father Jacinto Zamora was born in Pandacan, Manila on August 14, 1835. His father was Venancio Zamora. His mother was Hilaria del Rosario.

It was his childhood dream to be a priest. He did everything to follow the desire of his heart. He studied well and finished his Bachelor of Arts degree in the Colegio de San Juan de Letran. He continued his studies at the University of Santo Tomas where he completed his Bachelor of Canon Laws.

He took up examinations to qualify him for priesthood and passed them with flying colors. This however did not give him the opportunity to be given permanent position by the Spanish friars.

When he was transffered in Manila, he saw the unjust treatment of the Spanish friars against the Filipino priest. He pitied them that he resolved to fight for their rights.

He led a campaign against the abusive Spanish friars and fought for equal rights among priests.

The Filipino priest loved and admired Father Zamora. But the Spanish friars detested him. They hatched a plan even with him.

They accused him of collaborating with the rebels who led an uprising in Cavite. Like the two other priests, Father Burgos and Father Gomez, they arrested and detained him. Father Zamora was executed by strangulation together with the two martyr priests on February 28, 1872.

Champion Of The Masses

There was nothing extraordinary about Andres Bonifacio as a child. Unlike Jose Rizal, he did not show signs of being a genius that would have given clues to his greatness when he grew up to be a man. Even the circumstances of his birth were commonplace.

Bonifacio was born to Santiago Bonifacio and Catalina de Castro, a Spanish mestiza, in a shack in Tondo, Manila, on November 30, 1863. He finished only the primary school under the tutalege of Guillermo OsmeƱa. He had to quit schooling to support himself and his younger brothers and sisters who were orphaned of both parents at an early age.

Having learned to read and write, the fourteen-year-old Andres became a clerk messenger of Fleming and Company, a business firm dealing in rattan, tar, and other trade articles. His siblings, in turn, made wooden canes and paper fans which Andres sold in the streets.

The family earnings were not enough, though. Andres had to move to Freshell and Company where he got a bigger salary as an agent. He held on the job until Revolution began in August 1896.

In the mean time, he devoted much in his effort to self-improvement. He became proficient in Tagalog and Spanish. Among the feew books he kept and read were Rizal's novel, the lives of the presidents, Victor Hugo's Les Miserables and the French Revolution. These books prodded his spirit of rebellion and give him impulse to organize the Katipunan.

Bonifacio's appointment with destiny came on July 7, 1892 when he, long with Ladislao Diwa, Teodoro Plata and Deodato Arellano founded the Katipunan - an organization of the masses which started the Philippine Revolution. This organization spread rapidly in 1894 in the entire Philippines. Feeling that he was ready to lead a succesful revolt in 1896, he sent a man in Rizal, he was then an exile in Dapitan, asking Rizal to join the armed revolution Bonifacio was planning. Rizal firmly objected.

Bonifacio was left with no choice but to lead his men to the fight relying on his own guts and the overwhelming support of the workingmen who regarded him as their champion. Before he could act, however, the authorities discovered the Katipunan. More than 1,000 Katipuneros then assembled with him at Pugad Lawin, Caloocan, on August 23, 1896, either had to go into hiding or risked their lives in the battle field against the Spanish civil guards and Spanish soldiers.

Bonifacio and his men were poorly equipped to carry on the fight with the Spaniards. Bravely their faced the enemy and won uncertain victories and severe defeats. They had not been able to rise together on all fronts and take Manila as they had planned. But they had surrounded the capital city and wre in a position to rush in and overwhelm it when the Americans suddenly arrived.

However, the circumstances that led to the Supremo's execution did not lessen in anyway the stature of Andres Bonifacio in the eyes of the msses for whom he stood and fought. He was still their hero-brave, daring and a real fighter.

The Cartesian Coordinate Plane

Two real number lines constructed to perpendicular to each other, one horizontal and one vertical, form a coordinate plane, otherwise known as Cartesian Plane. It was name after Rene Descartes, a French philosopher and mathematician who introduced it in 1637.

The horizontal line is the x-axis and the vertical one is the y-axis. They intersect at a point called the origin, with corresponding ordered pair of numbers which is (0,0). The first number in the ordered pair is the x-coordinate or abcissa and the second number in the y-coordinate or ordinate. Thus, every point in the plane has corresponding ordered pair of number (x,y). The axes divide the coordinate plane into four regions called quadrant labeled I, II, III, and IV.

In plotting of points, the abcissa tells how many units to the right or to the left of the origin we should go and the ordinate tells how many units above or below x-axis the point is.

Father Jacinto Zamora was the least distinguished of the triumvirate who died an early morning in the Bagumbayan Field. He lack Father Birgos' love for studies and Father Gomez' writing ability. But he had one thing which set him apart from other priest of his generation. He loves his country to the depths of his heart and soul. Eventually, he died for his Motherland.

A native of Pandacan , Manila, Father Zamora studied in Manila. He was faithful to his parish work. He was frank and bold. Wile in Pasig he spoke frankly about abuses of the Spaniards. This brought on their hatred towards him. So, he was transferred to Manila but his transfer did not stop him either. Instead, his voice against the abuses of the Spaniards became bolder.

When the Cavite Revolt began, on January 20, 1872, Father Zamora got a letter from Father Duran, a friend. The letter read; "Grand Reunion. Come without fail. Our friends are well provide with powder and ammunition's."

The letter which reach the hands of the Spanish authorities sealed his fate. He was accused of taking part in the Cavite Revolt. He was tried together with Burgos and Gomez. The trial was speedy and the sentence of death by garrote was quickly signed and handed down by Governor Izquierdo.

Father Zamora's sufferings during the mock trial were too much for his peace of mind. He died an insane on the same day Father Burgos and Gomez died.

Preparing for the Future

How do we prepare for these various possible changes in the future? What type of training is necessary so that coping will not be painful?
Today is the best time to prepare for the "what might be's" of the future. Try to imagine families in the future and think about how you would like your family to be. Where would you like to live? What would you doing? The various changes it harder for you to answer these questions, far harder than when your parents were in the same situation. A careful planning at an early time will help.
According to J. Rose Eshelman, author of the book The Family, An Introduction, changes that take place and will take place in the community and in the family are not necessarily pleasing or regrettable, good or bad, constructive or destructive.
Whether or not these changes will be welcomed or rejected will depend largely on one's own orientation, experience one's own orientation, experience one are exposed to, the group with which one identifies , and ones value system.

The Crusader Priest

Men of God are commited to undertake a crusade for love, brotherhood, and holiness. There are times, however, when people misinterpret and become insecure with the clergy's actions. Father Jose A. Burgos was one such misunderstood priest.

Father Burgos was born in Vigan Ilocos Sur, on February 9, 1837. His father was a spanish Lieutenant in the militia of Ilocos Sur and his mother was Florencia Garcia, a native girl from Viga.

Upn his father death, young Jose was sent to Manila to study. He enrolled at San Juan de Letran College and, as an orphan of a Spanish officer, he paid fees. Unable to endure the injustices he experienced while in school, he left Letran and enrolled at the University of Santo Tomas, becoming a pupil of Fr. Mariano Garcia. Even before he graduated with his doctorate degrees in Theology and in Canon Law, Father Burgos already held the post of director of the students and teacher of Latin in Letran in recognation of his exeptional intelligence.

He took his oath as a priest on December 17, 1864. He rose to important positions such as second corate of Manila Cathedral, magistrate and chief of Cathedral and fiscal of the Ecclesiastical Court. At the same time, the University of Santo Tomas gave him charge of its ceremonies.

The storm in the young priest's life began to brew when the Jesuits returned to the Philippines in 1859 and the Filipino priests who were then holding the parishes in the archbishopric of Manila, were moved to give way to Jesuits. Father Burgos did not like it. He knew that the faith could not rest on the solid fpundation if the church did not have the helped of trained and competent native priests. He spearheaded a movement for greater paricipation of Filipino priests in spreading the world God.

Many petitions was sent to Spain urging that the parishes be given back to Filipinos. But there was no effect. On June 27, 1864, Burgos published a splendid defense of the Filipino clergy entitled, "Manifest to the Noble Spanish People" which the loyal Filipinos addressed in defense of their honor and loyalty that have been grievously offended by the newspaper, La Verdad, of Madrid. With Father Jacinto Zamora and Mariano Gomez, he became an active member of the "Comite Reformador" or Reformist Commitee.

The three priests were tried at Fort Santiago on February 15, 1872 by a military court who have intentions to prove their guilt. In fact, their lawyer, Jose Arrieta, pleaded for mercy rigth at the start of the trial .Fr. Burgos was so outraged that he stood up and protested that he and his companmions were asking not for mercy but for justice. Justice was denied of them, however.

On February 17, 1872 ,they were executed amiddt the tolling of church bells and against the wishes of Governor-General Izquierdo who wanted the three priests robes taken off. Archbishop Meliton Martinez was convienced that they were innocent, and he refused to remove their priestly clothes.

The death of three priests, however, left its mark on the Filipino people. Seed of Nationalism have been planted. These grew in the years tht follow and culminated in the birth of the Katipunan.

Sketch When Words Fail

Not ideas can be put into words; pictures and diagrams can help visualize the problem better and let you see the situation and the elements in relation to each other.

What is made of? The composition of an object helps as visialize it. A ball of aluminum does not look the same as a ball of yarn. A piece of rocks gives a different impressionthan does a pile of straw. A brick building looks different from a steel, wood, or glass building. Sometimes you refer to what the objects seems like rather than what it is. An object can appear metallic even if it is not made of metal. Spun glass can have a woodly texture. Nylon can be smooth and soft, as in stockings, or hard and shorp as in toothbrush britles.

The Danger of Modernization

Modernization brings about new ways of doing things, more free time for family members to do other things, less diseases, and a wide range of other possibilities that may make family life easier and better.

However, modernization can also be the source of new dangers. Ecological imbalance, noise, pollution, health hazards in the form of pills, additives and preservatives in foods that pose danger to the health. All these would definitely make you think twice whether to work for modernization or against it.

Art and Life

Arts are powerful means to reform man, to change our deviant behavior into social order and to overcome our feelings of loneliness, uncertainty, and restlessness.

Our imagination is seldom more satisfied than through the recreation in ourselves of the beautiful themes, characters, motifs, and events by artist and their creations. Art is very much a part of our lives. Artist have always shown a deep concern about life around them.

We cannot ignore its presence because all these things are part of mans effort to transform their environment into a more interesting place to live in.
