PUP Opinion

Sayonara, My Ivory Towers

By Lawrence P. Villamar

This first week of May, I’ll officially be an alumnus of PUP. Our university has been my home, quite literally, for four years. It has been the setting of much of the more significant event of my college years, and even of the most mundane conversation with friends. Under its thick-trunked pines, I took lazy afternoon walks out, tired of a day’s worth of education (or just weary of waiting for professors who never showed up on time or never really did show up). I miss those lazy afternoon walk out and the hurried frantic rush in like a mad horse is chasing after you (Well, I sometimes wonder if I’m better off squaring with the mad horse than the professors who don’t actually wait for late students like me with open arms.) Sigh, I just miss those days when I and my friends would camp out in the Mabini Circle talking about love, our different ideologies and who hook up with whom. It makes me dizzy just trying to figure out how many iced tea we drank in those ceremonial rests in Mabini Circle [Read More…]

What We Need

“Damn government officials, damn government. You did nothing but to criticize each other and remain deaf from our cries”, a phrase of fury that was delivered by a jeepney driver as he points his middle finger at a traffic officer as we passed by a commotion that made a slight congestion on the road. I thought getting off that jeep because the hot weather that day was aggravated by the driver’s hot temper but my 6 pesos would be wasted so I decided to continue my way to school beside the flaming driver.

Between “Taga-PUP lang po” and “Taga-PUP po!

I’m on my senior year in our University. It will be just months before I graduate and be weaned from the nurturing of our academic community, and hopefully, find an employment, which for now, seems nebulous. Have it not that I come at helm of this wonderful web blog, I could have easily attributed this cynical view of the outside world to my lack of confidence due to the fact that I come from a state university—not UP, but the other one. From the Polytechnic University of the Philippines.

PUP is not my personal choice for college. But then again, I did not have a choice. It’s either PUP or no where. I choose the latter, of course, but it felt as if I was just choosing the lesser evil. Surely, I’m not alone in this way of thinking. It’s not surprising that alot of PUP students either keep mum when ask where they study, or shyly say, “ Sa PUP lang po…” [Read More]


Fairness and UP

By Michael Tan (PINOY KASI)

Originally published on page A11 of the January 24, 2007 issue of the Philippine Daily Inquirer

THERE’S a lot of shouting and jumping these days on campuses of the University of the Philippines (UP), as students and parents check out the results of UP’s College Admissions Test (UPCAT). Some 70,000 students took the UPCAT last August, but less than 10 percent have been admitted, based on their performance in UPCAT as well as their grades in high school, and certain equity factors such as socioeconomic status and geography.Not all of those who passed will enter UP. The richer students have options, sometimes choosing to go to one of several exclusive private universities where they’ve also earned admission. For students from middle- and low-income families, UP is what they and their parents have dreamed about, a way to get a top-rate education at relatively low tuition. Relatively. Last December, UP’s Board of Regents approved an increase in tuition and miscellaneous fees, which could affect the decisions of some families about pushing through with a bright child in college.[Read More]

Editor’s Note: Since PUP as of the moment is on the verge of succumbing to a similar faith, we feel that this article may well be helpful as we try to make sense of the situation our Sintang university is about to be in.

Paris not solely has the Eiffel Tower and the Champs-Elysees as points of interest – the town is significant and presents many opportunities for leisure and recreation.

Opponents of the French bill argue the alternative, and fear that cracking down will push prostitutes into a dangerous place: Being forced to cover, they’d be much more at the mercy of pimps and violent shoppers, and minimize off from the organizations capable of assist them. Malin Rising in Stockholm and Mike Corder in Amsterdam and Masha Macpherson in Paris contributed to this report.

LAUSANNE: Lausanne Escort, Lausanne Escorts, Escort Lausanne, Escorts Lausanne, Name Women Lausanne, Lausanne Name Women, Escort Service Lausanne, Lausanne Escort Service, Escort Girl Lausanne, Call Girl Lausanne. For instance: Escort Manama Bahrain or escort, Escort Lebanon, Beirut Escort, Escort Dubai, Escort Abu Dhabi, Doha and Qatar Escort, Escort Cairo, Istanbul, Escort Paris or Lyon, Escort Rome or Milan.

An inspector general’s report concluded that the officers who supplied the escort did not break department rules and said that escorts for non-dignitaries had been routinely provided. PARIS (Reuters) – France’s World Cup preparations were overshadowed on Monday by news http://paris-royal.club/escorts-paris/anna-paris-escort/ that players, together with the talismanic Franck Ribery, had been heard as witnesses by police investigating a prostitution community. I escort my daughter to highschool every day as I’m terrified of her travelling in a school van.

There are plenty of several types of bistros with Paris together with websites that you could tend to take out with, along with lots of the eating locations get a number of historical previous and nostalgia, so folks thought it will a perception to concentrate on an individual in particular, termed your See d’Argent. In 1995, famend Italian designer Francesco Smalto was convicted after sending plenty of suits to Gabon’s President Omar Bongo together with a gaggle of name girls.
