The Bicolano language is the dialect of the people of Region six. The region’s six provinces have varying numbers of municipalities, cities and towns. Camarines Sur has the most numerous towns and barrios. There are three cities namely, Naga and Iriga (in Camarines Sur) and Legaspi (in Albay). Airplanes, trains and buses make transportation in the region easy. Albay’s strategic location makes it a gateway for the neighboring regions of Samar-Leyte and the Tagalog provinces. Naga City serves as the center of communication with several commercial radio receivers and government-owned and operated radio networks. The original settlers of Bicol were said to be hybridized by the Tagalog (who migrated to Camarines Norte and Camarines Sur) and the Visayans (who moved to Masbate and Sorsogon). These migrations plus the isolation of certain areas led to the formation of diverse dialects. The Bicol language is basically Malayo-Polynesian with adaptations of some Arabic, Indian, Chinese, and Spanish words. An agglutinative language, it has a simple structure and an inflection that retains the meaning of the word. The isolated people of Libon speak another dialect which combines the dialects in the Rinconada district of Camarines Sur, from Bato to Baao. Another dialect is spoken in southern Catanduanes. Some parts of Masbate and Sorsogon fall linguistically between Bicol and Cebuano. Tagalog with a distinct Bicol accent is spoken in Camarines Norte.
The words listed below are examples of common Bicolano expression with its English translation: Bicolano | English | Dios Marhay na aldaw Kamusta po kamo? Namomotan ta'ka Masain ka? | Good Day; a pleasant dayHow are youI love youWhere are you going |

...The Mount Rushmore National Memorial is a sculpture carved into the granite face of Mount Rushmore near Keystone, South Dakota, in the United States. Sculpted by Danish-American Gutzon Borglum and his son, Lincoln Borglum, Mount Rushmore features 60-foot (18 m) sculptures of the heads of four United States presidents: George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln. The entire memorial covers 1,278.45 acres (5.17 km2) and is 5,725 feet (1,745 m) above sea level. The tallest mountain in the region is Harney Peak (7,242 ft or 2,207 m). South Dakota historian Doane Robinson is credited with conceiving the idea of carving the likenesses of famous people into the Black Hills region of South Dakota in order to promote tourism in the region. Robinson's initial idea was to sculpt the Needles; however, Gutzon Borglum rejected the Needles site because of the poor quality of the granite and strong opposition from environmentalists and Native American groups. They settled on the Mount Rushmore location, which also has the advantage of facing southeast for maximum sun exposure. Robinson wanted it to feature western heroes like Lewis and Clark, Red Cloud[4] and Buffalo Bill Cody but Borglum decided the sculpture should have a more national focus, and chose the four presidents whose likenesses would be carved into the mountain. After securing federal funding, construction on the memorial began in 1927, and the presidents' faces were completed between 1934 and......

...------------------------------------------------- Philosophy Western philosophy Some would consider the study of "nothing" to be foolish, a typical response of this type is voiced by Giacomo Casanova (1725–1798) in conversation with his landlord, one Dr. Gozzi, who also happens to be a priest, “ | As everything, for him, was an article of faith, nothing, to his mind, was difficult to understand: the Great Flood had covered the entire world; before, men had the misfortune of living a thousand years; God conversed with them; Noah had taken one hundred years to build the ark; while the earth, suspended in air, stood firmly at the center of the universe that God had created out of nothingness. When I said to him, and proved to him, that the existence of nothingness was absurd, he cut me short, calling me silly.[3] | ” | However, "nothingness" has been treated as a serious subject worthy of research for a very long time. In philosophy, to avoid linguistic traps over the meaning of "nothing", a phrase such as not-being is oftenemployed to unambiguously make clear what is being discussed. Parmenides One of the earliest western philosophers to consider nothing as a concept was Parmenides (5th century BC) who was a Greek philosopher of the monist school. He argued that "nothing" cannot exist by the following line of reasoning: To speak of a thing, one has to speak of a thing that exists. Since we can speak of a thing in the past, it must still exist (in some sense) now and......

...Judson (1820–1886), besser bekannt als Ned Buntline. Der Name stammte daher, dass ihre Mitglieder den Eid schworen, in der Öffentlichkeit nicht viel Geheimnisse über die Partei preiszugeben (Englisch: to know nothing); sollten sie zu der Partei von Externen gefragt werden, sollten sie antworten: „Ich weiß von nichts.“[1] Sie gründeten die Freimaurerloge Order of the Star Spangled Banner.[2] Zu dieser hatten nur protestantische Männer, englischer Herkunft Zugang. Ein weiterer Vorläufer war der Order of the United Americans.[3] Der Hauptzweck der Partei war die Bekämpfung des Einflusses der Einwanderer und der Katholischen Kirche.

Dr. Earl Reum for writing a beautiful poem and Patrick Comeaux for remembering it wrong when he was 14. THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER part 1 August 25, 1991 Dear friend, I am writing to you because she said you listen and understand and didn't try to sleep with that person at that party even though you could have. Please don't try to figure out who she is because then you might figure out who I am, and I really don't want you to do that. I will call people by different names or generic names because I don't want you to find me. I didn't enclose a return address for the same reason. I mean nothing bad by this. Honest. I just need to know that someone out there listens and understands and doesn't try to sleep with people even if they could have. I need to know that these people exist. I think you of all people would understand that because I think you of all people are alive and appreciate what that means. At least I hope you do because other people look to you for strength and friendship and it's that simple. At least that's what I've heard. So, this is my life. And I want you to know that I am both happy and sad and I'm still trying to figure out how that could be. I try to think of my family as a reason for me being this way, especially after my friend Michael stopped going to school one day last spring and we heard Mr.......

...Nothing – A mere seven characters long word but with such significance in our lives, which cannot be ignored. It has such diverse number of uses in our lives which we cannot even imagine. Everything, from us to the whole universe, started with this one word. It is the beginning of everything. As we can say, the step zero of all the processes is always ‘Nothing’. If something is already there then it cannot re-originate. Nothing existed before the Big Bang happened, which led to the creation of the universe. Now as the universe is already there, it cannot be re-created without it first being destroyed which will again lead it back to the step zero. It is also the most widely used word by us nowadays. ‘Nothing’ is what we do most of the times. It just may be the profession of a huge number of people in the world. Some love doing it and some are forced to it because of certain circumstances. To speak of it, at some point of time or the other all of us want to just sit back, relax and do nothing. This is what ultimately everyone’s goal is, this is what we work hard for all our lives. We all study hard to make a good career so that we can earn a lot of money and then just sit back and enjoy without having to do anything, which means being happily retired. It can also be used to hide our feelings and thoughts from the others. When we don’t want to discuss or talk about anything, we simply sum it all up in just this one word and the topic ends. Another form in which this word...

Aaron Hill

...does Aaron Hill use memory to combine generalised moralising with personalised lament in the poem in list B? Use close reading to support your points. In the poem ‘Alone, in an Inn, at Southampton’, by Aaron Hill, the speaker recounts the memories he once shared with his wife whilst staying in a room at a guesthouse before her death. He is now writing as a widower in the same room twenty years later and he expresses his feelings of anguish by projecting specific memories of his wife on to objects within the room, before going on to make broad statements on morality and the vices of life. The poem could be said to be split into three parts, the first section being the speakers lament for his wife, the second section outlining his now changed philosophical outlook on life, and the third detailing his resolution which concludes the poem. This essay aims to show, through close reading, how the protagonist of the poem combines his personal memories and feelings of sorrow with his own general moralising about life’s hardships. The first section of the poem begins as a simple lament, as the speaker remembers his wife and the happiness she brought him and contrasts it with the emptiness and loneliness which he feels now in her absence: “Twenty lost years have stoln their hours away, Since, in this inn, ev’n in this room, I lay: How chang’d! what then was rapture, fire, and air, Seems now sad silence all, and blanc despair!” In the opening lines, Hill......

City on a Hill

...City on a Hill Speeches John Winthrop in particular has been quoted as a source of inspiration by U.S. presidents from John F. Kennedy and Ronald Reagan. John Winthrop crossed the ocean from England to New England aboard the Arabella in early 1630s. His passengers were primarily Puritans who had fled England in search of religious freedom. John Winthrop's directive provided inspiration and caution to the passengers, and his determination was seen through John F. Kennedy’s and Ronald Reagan’s eyes. The “City on a Hill” speech was the motivational piece for John Winthrop, and the incentive for John F. Kennedy and Ronald Reagan. The “City upon a Hill” section of the sermon called “A Model of Christian Charity” was written in 1630s by the Puritan leader, John Winthrop, while the first group of Puritan emigrants was still onboard their ship. The “City upon a Hill” passage has come to represent irritating Puritan pridefulness; they thought they were perfect, a city on a hill that everyone else would admire and want to imitate. In reality, the passage is far from a back-patting exercise. Winthrop knew that the events in New England would be watched not just by England, but by the world. It was in this context that Winthrop noted: “We must consider that we shall be as a city upon a hill. The eyes of all people are upon us.” His language made it clear that we were not destined to be a shining example, only that we were destined to be an example, shining or not. In theory, his......

...this software to eliminate paper trails and antiquated things like filing cabinets. However, their level of access will be limited depending on their role in the company. Information will be much more easily maintained and security will be handled by authorizations and group policies. The security and integrity of this information will be of the highest priority. Regular backups of the new system will be scheduled, both onsite and offsite in the cloud. Riordan does not have a data center, so they will have to subscribe to an online backup for offsite backup of the information. For onsite backup the servers will be configured with a RAID 5 configuration with at least three HDD’s in every server. One is for the information, and two are nothing but backups. Hyper V software will also be used for bringing back the system in the event of critical failure. A Sophos firewall will be placed at each location to ensure security and restrict access. One last thing on security, the company should spare no expense in antivirus software. This as well as some anti-malware should be implemented with the new system upgrade. Something like Norton or Kapersky, or Managed AV through GFI would work well. Conclusion The importance of having an organized HR depends on how well the system functions. A successful HR system will give this organization a solid advantage against competitors. “…in order for any characteristic of a firm's human resources to provide a source of sustained competitive...

Hill Country

...9-913-517 OCTOBER 22, 2012 W. CARL KESTER CRAIG STEPHENSON Hill Country Snack Foods Co. The Chief Executive Officer of Hill Country Snack Foods had never enjoyed analyst conference calls, but in late January of 2012, Howard Keener was yet again asked about the company’s cash balances, capital structure, and performance measures. One analyst complained that Hill Country’s growing cash position, absence of debt finance, and large equity balance made it difficult for a company in a mature industry to earn a high rate of return on equity, and recommended a more aggressive capital structure. “Maybe I don’t fully understand capital structure theory and practice,” replied Keener, “but I have observed that companies don’t get into trouble because they have too much cash; they get into trouble because they have too much debt.” Hill Country had seen its sales and profits grow at a steady rate during Keener’s tenure as CEO, and at the end of 2011 the company had zero debt and cash balances equal to 18% of total assets and 13% of market capitalization. Having just celebrated his 62nd birthday, Keener was approaching retirement, creating speculation by investors and analysts that the company might change to a more aggressive capital structure in the near future. Company Background Hill Country Snack Foods, located in Austin, Texas, manufactured, marketed, and distributed a variety of snacks, including churros, tortilla chips, salsa, pretzels, popcorn, crackers,......
