Expressive Words

Many words have two kinds of meaning denotation, a basic and literal meaning, and connotation, an associated meaning that implies or suggest more than it specifically denotes. For example, Kundiman not only denotes Filipino music but suggest a love song, usually melancholy and plaintive, sung by a discouraged lover to the girl he admires.

The denotation and connotation of a word or phrase determine its expressiveness. When we are explaining or arguing, we use specific words that are exact and appropriate; and the words are chosen primarily for their denotation (actual meaning). However, when we are telling stories or writing description or verses, we choose words that are rich in connotation (suggestive meaning) to stimulate the imagination and arouse the feelings of our listeners and readers.

Do you have motivation?

Determine whether you really want to succeed in your career. If you are serious in your career goals, then you will do whatever takes, within ethical limits, to succeed.

Some people want a promotion, but they are not willing to put in the effort to train themselves; show that they can perform; be there for the company, the team, and their bosses when they are most needed; or prove that they can be team players and work well with others. Some are not willing to read a book to sharpen their thinking. Some are not willing to leave their houses a little earlier to make sure they are on time at the office all the time. Some might even be subconsciously afraid of the added responsibility that a promotion will bring.

In these cases, your wish for a promotion will not be granted. On the other hand, if you really desire a promotion, then, bring dirty tricks, you will do everything to deserve the promotion. Then, promotion becomes a "gift" which your employer will willingly give you and not a "right" that must be demanded.

The best way to pack that BALIKBAYAN box

Yes, we Filipinos are unstoppable shoppers and pasalubong monsters whenever we travel. The problem is, we always seem to forget that after all that shopping will come a day when we have to pack. 3M share some tips to help us get through that dreadful packing day:

  • Getting prepared. Gather these materials before you even start packing: permanent marker, pencil, scissors, calculator, garbage bags, knife, 3M Scotch Masking Tape, 3M Scotch Packaging or Duct Tape, weighing scale. Ask your airline what their allowable weight limit is.
  • Getting sturdy. Reinforce your balikbayan box before stuffing it with your goodies by lining the bottom, corners, and sides with 3M Packaging or Duct Tape. Then line the entire box with garbage bags to keep your things from spilling, just in case your box accidentally opens.
  • Getting organized. Group all products together according to category: breakable, non breakables, liquid bottles. Wrap all breakables with bubble wrap or clothing like socks and sweaters. Use non-breakables like canned goods and books to line the bottom of the box. Seal all bottled liquids like shampoo, lotion, perfume with 3M Masking Tape to keep them from spilling.

SSS and Pag-ibig

How many years have you been contributing to these institutions?

Do you know that you are entitled to a cash loan and possibly a housing loan at very affordable interest rates?

Research on your benefits and you might want to use your locations.

Someone once said, "Money not taken cared of is money lost." There are many opportunities awaiting us, many investments we have not seen or heard of yet. There are many money traps we can fall into if we neglect to do simple things like paying bills on time or balancing checkbooks regularly. The only way to get rid of this phenomenon in our lives is to manage money properly and be diligent in our system of updating and budgeting . Take time out each day to do your homework, and you'll realize that many money problems can be avoided if we just plan and manage our money properly.

Landforms of the Philippines

Let us start this section by giving a general description of our country. The Philippines is made up of islands, some 7,107 of them; hence, it is described as fragmentary.

The name of our country is also followed by "archipelago", a term derived from the Greek expressions archi- (which means chief ) and pelagos (which means sea ). The term refers to any sea with many islands or to such a group islands.

The country is divided into three geographic areas. These are: (a) Luzon, which is the largest of 7,107 islands; (b) Mindanao, which is the second largest; and (c) the Visayas, the principal islands of which are Samar, Negros, Panay, Mindoro, Leyte, Cebu and Bohol.

Did You Know?

Water enters the roots of plants and reaches all parts of plant body primarily through capillarity, although there are other factors that facilitate the process. Most big plants have very fine tubes, called xylem vessels through which water travels inside the plant body. In the leaves, you can see bundles of these tubes in the form of leaf veins.
