Philippines I Was Born in
PAGES 4 WORDS 1215

In 1959, the year I was born, Carlos P. Garcia was the president of the Philippines. Garcia was anti-communist, which the Americans liked, but nevertheless he was strongly devoted to the nationalist cause.
Another key way the United States influenced Philippine culture was through arts, literature, and entertainment. American television shows such as "Perry Mason" and "Rawhide" were being broadcast in the country. Popular American songs from 1959 such as those by Buddy Holly and Marty Robbins would be heard on Philippine radio. The Philippine people inherited many American army surplus vehicles, changing the character of Philippine roads and cities. The Americans influenced the ways Philippine people went shopping, how they ate, and what they spoke: English is now the official second language of the Philippines. Moreover, although Catholicism had already firmly taken root in the country due to the Spanish influence, American protestant religions made their mark around the….

For example, in January 2001 President Macapagal-Arroyo occupied the presidency after a civilian coup, backed by the military, until elections took place in May 2004 (Orbeta 2003, p.8). The lack of population control, decreased access to educational opportunities, healthcare, and opportunities has been particularly "deleterious" in its effects upon the nation's resources of human capital (Orbeta 2003, p.12). Additionally, longstanding political corruption has resulted in the exploitation of the nation's natural resources to serve foreign and domestic elites and limited the available funds to deal with the burgeoning population (Tarradell 2004, p.3).
Another problem with population control is that it is hard to tell which aspects of the high fertility and poverty rates are willed or unwilled. For cultural and religious reasons, as well as to ensure their security in old age, many families desire large numbers of children. "To sort which ones are due to lack of control over….

Philippines Real Estate
Over the last several years, the Philippine Islands has been going through a major transformation. Part of the reason for this, is because the country has become an area of focus for many firms that are looking to outsource jobs from other regions of the world. As, the nation known is known for: having an educated workforce and low labor costs. This has helped to increase the total number of businesses that are relocating to region. A good example of this can be seen with the total number of IT jobs that were outsourced to the Philippines. As, they increased by: 26% in 2011, which is following a rise of 24% in 2010.

Colonization of the Philippines
The Philippines historically suffered under Spanish rule prior to its annexation by the United States. However, American colonization of the region, while pledged to be altruistic, proved to support a hidden agenda of gaining an Asian territory of military and social importance, similar in the imperialistic tradition of major European countries. The acquisition of the Philippines was met with strong opposition by Filipinos charging the U.S. presence to be imperialistic, but the considerable value it brought to Philippine politics, the economy, and the social welfare of its people have, in some ways, justified the U.S. struggle for possession.

European imperialism in the 1800s proved highly profitable for both the Dutch East Indies and the ritish Indies, as rival European powers strived to conquer foreign territories for their own profit. These ideal colonies were models of success for the Dutch and Great ritain as they gained from trade and….

Comparison

In almost all other cases of mummification, internal organs are removed, while the rest of the body is mummified. For the Egyptians, this process involved placing each major organs in a jar by the bedside of the dead. The Kabayan mummies are the only mummies in the world with intact internal organs. Because of the unique mummification process, these mummies are then also a unique representative of the country's cultural past. It contrasts with all other mummification processes in history, including that of Egypt, one of the most advanced ancient cultures in the world (Cordillera Blogger, 2007).

The Kabayan mummification process however does show similarities with processes used by the 21st….

The Martyred Priests of the Philippine evolution: Gomburza
In the annals of Philippine history, the names of Mariano Gomez, Jose Burgos, and Jacinto Zamora (collectively known as Gomburza) stand as enduring symbols of the struggle for independence and social justice. Their martyrdom on February 17, 1872, ignited a fire that would eventually lead to the Philippine evolution (Agoncillo, 1990, p. 215).

Gomez, Burgos, and Zamora were prominent Filipino priests in the mid-19th century. Gomez, the eldest, was a renowned scholar and theologian. Burgos, a young and charismatic priest, was a vocal advocate for the rights of the Filipino people. Zamora, the most outspoken of the trio, was a fearless critic of the Spanish colonial government (Guerrero, 1998, p. 74).

The Gomburza priests were actively involved in the movement for secularization, which sought to remove the Spanish friars from control of parishes in the Philippines. They believed that the Filipino clergy was capable of….

Philippines Culture
The Philippines existed as a loose body of island tribes until the nation was settled by the Spanish in the 16th century following Magellan's arrival. For 300 years the Philippines was part of the Spanish Empire (indeed, its name Philippines is in honor of Spain's Philip II, who reigned during Villalobos's exploration of the islands in the mid-16th century). The U.S. became involved in the Philippines during the Spanish-American War and their presence there prompted the Philippine-American War (Constantino, 1975). The U.S. maintained control of the islands until after WW2 when the Philippines became independent.

The geography of the Philippines consists of a vast archipelago of more than 7000 islands. In all, the islands equate to 115,000 square miles of land, with about a third of that land mass being coastal (CIA, 2009). The islands sit on the famous Ring of Fire, a string of volcanoes in the Pacific and….

Nestle Case
Nestle (Philippines) had capitalized on the instant coffee boom in the Philippines and by 1996 the company saw its market share climb from 52% to 66%. Instant coffee consumption had more than doubled in the country and while this was good news for Mascenon (Vice-President of Nestle's Instant Drinks Department) the problem he now faced was this: how to maintain market share in the face of rising stiff competition (created by a number of variables) without cutting into profits by lowering prices in order to stay competitive with off-brands and other multinationals coming into the Philippines on the back of relaxed tariffs.

Nestle had grown from a baby formula company in the 19th century to a producer of a wide range of food products in the 20th century (largely a result of war-time acquisitions). By the end of the 20th century it was bringing in more than $6 billion in….

The deaths of Gomburza (Gomez, Burgos, Zamora) continually contribute to our understanding of Filipino nationalism by highlighting the injustices and atrocities committed by the Spanish colonial government towards Filipino revolutionaries and patriots. The execution of Gomburza in 1872, falsely accused of leading a revolt against the Spanish authorities, served as a catalyst for the rise of Filipino nationalism and resistance against colonial oppression.

The martyrdom of Gomburza inspired subsequent generations of Filipinos to fight for independence and self-determination, igniting a sense of national identity and pride. Their deaths symbolize the sacrifice and courage of those who dared to challenge colonial rule....
