Here’s the music that plays in the middle of the story:
“While Surfing: On the Ebola Virus” by Hannah Ledesma reminded me to share the movie, Outbreak (Warner Bros. 1995) which dramatizes the possible medical emergency scenario caused by Ebola Virus.
While watching, try to situate yourself in this scenario:

Embedding the video found by co-author “While Surfing: On the Ebola Virus”
Following the recent global anxiety about great mortality rates of citizens in west Africa, several Youtube channels have covered this story with the intent to educate and inform the rest of the world on this dangerous albeit unfamiliar disease.
While surfing one of my favourite science channels, SciShow, I saw this video summarizing the Ebola virus’ casualties, a synopsis of its history, transmission and the current state in Africa. The link below will lead you to the video.
- 2nd Deadliest Disease
- Bats were the initial carriers
- a.k.a. Ebola Hemorrhagic Fever or Ebola Virus Disease

Ever wonder why lately, the internet is pouring their love for Nikola Tesla and condemning the douchebag (oops) that is Thomas Edison? Check out this comic from The Oatmeal on Tesla’s greatest contributions to the world.

Last 16th of August, 2014, a familiar face came about within the school grounds of the University of Sto. Tomas.
It was Marian Rivera and Rhyzza Mae Dizon!
Rejoice! Rejoice! A celebrity! How fun, exciting!
Apparently, it was a shooting for a scene from an upcoming 2015 MMFF film entitled Bad And Sinungaling. Now, I have totally no idea what the plot of this film is going to be, but judging by the actors and the crew gathered, I am not psyched at all.
Starting up with Vic Sotto, Marian Rivera, and Rhyzza Mae Dizon as (most probably) the main cast, and end it with the director of photography, Lee Meily, and director Marlon Rivera, I can only see the bleak future of the Philippine film…

How can we describe a good teacher or a good professor?
In the Norm: Teacher- comes in class-check attendance-lectures-quiz-dismissal.
In the old times did you know that the idea of selling water particularly in water bottles people thought that it was a silly idea? Which we can now find sold all over the world by groceries, convenience stores or street vendors! That unique idea at first sounded silly, crazy, weird and/but unique but now it evolved to be worldwide; never the less, it has a particular classification which we call brands! (Ex. Summit, Cystal Clear, Aqua Fina, Absolute etc.)
Our professor, Prof. Rom Cumagun introduced to us a different approach in teaching which he calls “Blogosphere.” It sounded unique, but most of us, his students, weren’t interested about it; because we were taught by the “Norm,” we accepted the traditional way of teaching where we can learn and get our grades from.
Like no other professor, we broke the ice by asking him what his real objective in teaching is. Why is he not giving lectures from a book? Why is he discussing about blogging? At first, we didn’t understand, but one phrase he said that inspired me was: “I have a big dream that someday, YOU, as advertising students, might someday become leaders” which led to an answer to those questions of ours. He wanted us to be authors, not to be readers. He has this big vision for us that someday we will be discovered by our unique ideas like Albert Einstein, Galileo Galilei, William Gilbert a.k.a. to be Leaders, Celebrities, Known Names in the Industry!
His approach of teaching was like this…
Prof. Cumagun-Prayer-discussion of blogs-interaction-grading system based on our multiple intelligence-attendance-dismissal
As an advertising student, he introduced his own brand as a professor which makes him one of a kind. He is not like any other professor who just teaches but requires us to interact with people through blogging, not in a traditional way of teaching, but by applying our major in a practical way! He, I would say, should be called our personal trainer, because he exercises us our major in advertising by blogging.
Our Believer, Trainer and Professor sir I respect your approach in teaching. It may be unique but that uniqueness might lead us someday to be successful professionals in our field. Thank you.

Jurassic Spider Eats Birds
by Kristen Anne Uy, 3AD-7
With people standing, staring, astound,
The colors soaking into them,
The art evoking heart in them.
I find them very pretty
I watch them glisten upon my city
But I always see myself ponder in bed
Why oh why are they color red
When the time has come for sun to veer
The sunlight goes through more of the atmosphere
Light scatters and only shades of red pass our eyes so clear
And that learning, I will share to my peers
Authors Note: Since I will not be joining the creative writing workshop of the varsitarian, I created this short poem to comply with Sir Cumagun’s requirement. 🙂
