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. These factors are important, because they are highlighting how the Philippines are quickly becoming a popular location for variety businesses. (Philippines Real Estate Report 2011)
While at the same time, the government has been aggressively focusing….
Moreover, they have been ignoring their public transportation system. Evidence of this can be seen with a study conducted by the Global Competitiveness eport of the World Economic Forum. They found that the Philippines has an aging infrastructure and the government is continuing to neglect these issues. As a result, they determined that it is considered to be mediocre in contrast with many countries that are rapidly developing. (Esplanda, 2012) ("Philippines," 2012)
Clearly, the Ukraine is the most logical choice for GE Energy. This is because the country is considered to be: politically stable, they have been implementing sound economic reforms and their government has been embracing the basic ideals of democracy. Moreover, they are making sizeable investments in it infrastructure. Whereas the Philippines is dealing with an insurgency, there are tremendous amounts of corruption and they are not updating the infrastructure. The combination of these factors is showing how….

Communist Party of the Philippines/New People's Army (CPP/NPA)
Since the year 1970, Philippines has faced civil war on two fronts, one is a Muslim rebellion, which was initiated in the South Island of Mindanao and the other is the communist rebellion, which is led by the New People's Army (NPA). The NPA started targeting its attacks on the Philippine's army in the early 1970s. During the era of 1970s and early 1980s, NPA gained considerable popular support….

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….

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).

Green Financing in the Philippines
Our traditional sources of energy are decreasing rapidly causing a demand and importance for green energy. The aim of green energy is to reduce the pollution problems that are being suffered. Investments in green energy are becoming increasingly more popular and more profitable.
Investments in green energy
The current situation for the Philippines is:
The Philippines are facing problems of pollution, higher health hazards, increased unemployment and poverty because of climate change.
The Philippine government has enacted legislation to address the issues, but fail to be consistent in the supervising and implementation of the regulations.
There are obstacles with the green practices that include public awareness, training for bank employees in green practices and costs, and SMEs having available information regarding the benefits of going green and obtaining financing to go green.
There are information gaps about renewable energy and energy efficient technologies, their achievements, capabilities, and economic benefits that cause obstacles….

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 (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….
No efforts have been made to create a strong consumer base in the Philippines itself by improving the lot of the Filipino workers (Bello 3). Had a local market been created and some protections afforded to Filipino workers, development may well have proceeded in a more positive direction as the nation would have been better able to take advantage of those aspects of globalization that offered true benefits, rather than sinking all economic hopes into the long shot that the small nation could compete with nations like India and China as a source of cheap labor. Despite this reality, economic reform in the Philippines has consistently focused on re-creating the nation as an export economy, specifically in the it industry. It probably seemed like a natural extension of economic development in the 1980s and 1990s when the Philippines was attempting to embrace globalization. Globalization offered a way to integrate….
