The need to have more Ariel from "Boses" movie-attending the Teacher's Forum and Workshop on Gender and Film


Attending the Teachers Forum on Integrating Gender and Film in Lesson Plans was not only an opportunity to watch an outstanding movie, "Boses" by Direk Ellen Ongkeko-Marfil but a wake-up call to all whose awareness sits in the wildnerness on gender sensitivity and alarming child abuse in the country. The movie was intricate in detail how it teaches the thinking and the ignorant Filipino on how music or any other forms of expression can save a soul battered with violence and societal cancers. The screenplay was also outstanding in presenting scenes vivid to elaborate the logical symbols and characters that make the story more effective in making my eyeshadow totally destroyed after watching it. I applaud Direk Ellen Ongkeko-Marfil for the wonderful intelligent ending being hopeful of the character of a batterer in Ricky Davao (Marcelo in the movie). In what I've read and in most stories especially the ones told by my battered sister, the batterer remains a batterer all his life and rehabilitation of the battered and the batterer usually showed no sign of remarkable progress. The violent father was usually a battered child and the passing of the torch to become the same is because of the breeding and the changes were seldom reported in the concerned agencies like DSWD or either ignored by the majority as it has passed the battery stage. The cycle of battery in any home cannot be ignored as it will also affect the kind of people we create in the society. It reminded me of my battered journalist whose father was a cruel Muslim who'd not let his child go to school being tasked to look after the battered wife and younger siblings. The hope to believe that a better life is still a chance is one that may not only touch the lives of those battered today but those who lives the same cycle. I truly love Ricky Davao's choices of movies as it reflects the kind of thoughts he'd believe he can easily internalize as an actor. He deserves more recognition more than the trophies the award giving bodies had granted but the academe should one day acknowledge his efforts to provide more quality Filipino films if not in the mainstream. I seldom have chances to watch indie films as it would take so much effort to look for the far theatres with schedules not friendly to mine but this wonderful opportunity given by the GADRC , the Division of City Schools and Direk Ellen Ongkeko-Marfil was one awakening experience. The saviour in the character of Ariel who taught the battered child, Onyok violin and made difficult efforts to learn the mute abused child's language through music and compassion truly gave hope to the child and to all of us who watched the movie that violin (though an expensive elite musical instrument played by the rich) can be learned by someone like Onyok. His considerations and struggles to communicate to Onyok should be a role model to all teachers who work to get salaries and not its basic purpose which is to teach and touch lives of people. May all Filipinos and all people all over the world get to watch "Boses" and learn the value of individual differences. The silent can teach the loud after all, God gave us two ears and one mouth so we may listen twice as we speak......Hear the voice in "Boses" and your lives may change!

    If you are a novice gambler you probably haven’t heard the term but professional bettors who earn their livelihood from sports betting use the method all the time taking advantage of the variance in odds from the opinions of the diverse number of bookmakers. Even though it sounds as if it is a no risk situation that may not always be the case and there some issues that can cause you to lose.

    The Parlay System is one of the most famous of betting systems that are commonly used in horse racing. Many have said that contrary to other sports betting systems, the Parlay System has a pyramiding effect on your profit which means your winnings are played on successive wagers.
    [url=http://www.pulsebet.com]football bet[/url]
    Switching a service located outside of the United States it not hard to do. In fact it is quite easy since there are many quality services to choose from. The most difficult thing that you will need to do is find the one that best suits your needs.

    If you are employing neither of those two elements, then the risk you run of eventually losing your entire Base Bank is 99.99%. On the other hand, employing only a good Selection System would not only reduce your risk closer to just 10% maximum, you would also have up to a 10% chance of making money. This would mean that the Bookies would suddenly be faced with a 10% possibility of losing to you long-term, rather than a 99.99% certainty of taking your money from you. Throw in a proper Staking Plan on top of that, and you will have increased your chances of winning to as high as 20%.

    Everything about horse betting

    Several states have enacted legislation allowing slot machines and other forms of gaming on-track. Tracks such as Mountaineer have used this additional source of revenue to improve their facilities, increase their purses and upgrade their overall level of racing. This legislation has also made it attractive for casino owners, such as Harrah's, to purchase and operate horse racing venues as a part of their business strategy.
    [url=http://www.pulsebet.com]bet on the derby[/url]
    Another sad fact is that more than 400 in-racing horses die every year in the UK alone. They may die on the course itself, from injuries received in training or be killed by their owners - considered no longer commercially viable.


    Will Barbaro be the next Triple Crown winner? He has the breeding and the talent, but as of this writing twenty horses have won the first two legs of the Triple Crown only to fail at Belmont. Twenty five more have won two of the three races, but maybe this year...

    [url=http://www.pulsebet.com]bet on horses[/url]
    As the field takes shape for the 131st running of the Preakness Stakes this Saturday, the question on everyone's minds is do we finally have a horse that can win the Triple Crown?

    Another issue that you must stay on top of is price fluctuations from the bookmaker. The prices for placing bets do not just change with different bookies but even with the same. You cannot take it for granted that the prices that are quoted in print like the Racing Post will be valid at the time of the event. With sports betting things can change very rapidly so be sure that the price will be honored before placing your bet otherwise this can seriously affect the outcome of your arbitrage sports betting.

    The best sports betting odds are in actuality just numbers, they may be an ever changing set of numbers but just numbers nonetheless. There are many different factors involved in the computation of not the least of which is the number of bettors placing bets on one team. If a bookie sees this happening he will give the team that is dentified as the loser more points and take points from the team deemed the winning team.

    So, having established that using a good Selection System is an absolute must if you want to make money from sports betting, how does the average Bettor actually go about making his/her betting selections? My research shows me that, in the main (ignoring the extremes), there are generally two approaches taken:

    - The more conservative group looks at the "Short Odds" calls, and plays safe by selecting only those matches where they themselves feel very confident about the outcome.

    - The more adventurous group analyses the matches and odds on offer, and then makes selections based on their own gut feeling about how the matches will turn out, making sure that the odds match their concept of a "value" bet.

    Traditional banking has always been a brick and mortar building where you go to deposit or withdraw money.

    With the popularity of the Internet and the power it gives people to take control of their lives, many traditional banks have created banking Internet web pages where customers could transfer money, set up bill payments recurring or otherwise, quickly check items that have cleared, and many other functions that can be accessed 24 hours per day 7 days a week.

    That brings me on to the point of all this. Who among the many United strikers of the past have been the best? For what they are worth, here are my thoughts on the top 5 strikers in the years prior to Alex Ferguson's reign at Manchester Utd. I have a strong suspicion that if you happen to be reading this your views may not align with mine, but I can live with that. manchester united [url=http://www.pulsebet.com]manchesterunited[/url] In anticipation of the 2002 Commonwealth Games, which Manchester hosted, several first class sporting facilities were constructed and this further boosted sports development in the city. These venues include the Manchester Velodrome, the City of Manchester Stadium, the National Squash Centre and the Manchester Aquatics Centre. [url=http://www.pulsebet.com]berbatov[/url] Manchester United Football Club is an English football club that plays in the Premier League. The Red Devils as they are commonly known have more than 300 million world-wide supporters. Meaning that out of every 20 people on earth, one of them will be a Manchester United Fan! Currently managed by Sir Alex Ferguson, Manchester United are one of the most successful teams in the history of English football having won 21 major titles since he became manager in 1986. During its remarkable history, many distinguished players have run out in the famous Manchester United shirt which can trace its origins back when Manchester United were known as Newton Heath Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway Football Club.

    If you’re like me when you first saw the term “arbitrage sports betting” you just said, “huh?” You may even be reading this article because you were wondering. It is a relatively little method that can actually allow you to make money no matter who wins or loses. Kind of like heads I win, tails I win!
    bet football | bet online sport betting
    Still, there are tons of bettors looking through rose colored glasses for the holy grail of betting systems that will let them make money without risking any. Well, there is a way to do that and it is called work! Gambling is called gambling for a reason, it’s risky. Let’s take a look at some sports betting systems.
    [url=http://www.pulsebet.com]football betting line[/url]
    For quite some time the United States House of Representatives has been trying to pass a bill that will make it much more difficult for people to get away with breaking the online gambling laws. Not to mention stricter penalties for those who are caught.

    And finally, in the first article in this series I mentioned being honest with yourself, because one of the biggest lies I have found that a tremendous number of Bettors are guilty of is denying to themselves how many times their Base Bank has been busted! If you too are guilty of this, please remember that until you face up to the truth with the determination to do something about it, you can't expect to turn the situation round in your favour.

    Playing bingo needs more than luck or skills and techniques, contrary to what most believe. Bingo, just like any game of chance, comes with rules and regulations that players should observe. Being a player comes with responsibilities and etiquette.

    Winning the Game

    The moment you figured out you won, you must immediately yell BINGO, and it should be loud enough for the floor walker to hear. The pot money shall be given to the winner once their winning card is confirmed. Well, in winning or once you know you just won, the most important thing is that you shout the winning word BEFORE the time elapses. If the game proceeds and the next number is mentioned and you failed to shout "Bingo", your winning card is disqualified. Therefore, this is the rule you must know.

    There may be cases when there are two winners, and in this case the pot money shall be divided equally among the winners. Supposing there are two winning cards, the two winners will share half the prize money.

    Bingo Game Rules

    Bingo rules are basically the same no matter in which Online Bingo hall you play. But still it's good if you know these rules by heart. If it is your first try, then ask for handouts and inquire from pros regarding the game rules. Nonetheless, the ideal thing to do if you have questions is to ask the floor walker and not the person seated beside you. You should clarify things and doubts before the game starts because asking too many questions as the game proceeds could well distract you. This guideline also applies to those who are newcomers at casinos, those who play roulette for the first time.

    Bingo halls demand an age limit of 18 years old. If you are below this age, you are prohibited to play. Some bingo houses ban alcohol inside, so players aren't supposed to take liquor nor drink it inside the venue. Smoking may also be restricted inside the venue, as there are designated smoking sections.

    Take note that some Bingo houses don't allow food but some do, so it basically depends on the venue. Policies vary among different venues. For instance, some bingo halls allow reservation of cards, while others don't allow it. Some allow people to leave the venue in the middle of the game, others forbid it. But there are general policies observed in all bingo houses, such as disqualification of tampered bingo cards. There is no way you can get away with a tampered card because the walkers are adept at identifying authentic cards from tampered ones. You could be banned from a bingo establishment if proven liable of tampering a card. Hence, you should play honestly.

    Interestingly, some venues offer special bingo games for kids although some halls don't allow players to have companions while playing. Suppose you bring kids with you, don't let them run around the venue and bother other gamers. They should behave well whilst you play and the game proceeds. Play quietly and don't recite the numbers you desperately want to come off because you'll be much of a disturbance if you do. Decorous playing is expectant of all players, even those who play roulette at casinos. Also, having a valid identification is important because you don't know you might win and need to present credentials.
