Zambales being only 3 hours away from Manila, Pundaquit however, is another 30 to 60 minutes away from the first city which is Olongapo. Traveling to Pundaquit is not as hard as it looks, compared to traveling towards the beaches South of Manila. The North has all the scenic roads and interesting people you’ll see along the way. That’s enough reason to make daytrippers and backpackers feel more relaxed, laid back and away from the rat race and hustle and bustle of Metro Manila.

Coming from Manila, take the North Luzon Expressway or NLEX and take the San Fernando Exit then head southwest the road to Olongapo. Before you reach Olongapo town proper, there is a shortcut route that will take you inside Subic Base Metropolitan Authority or SBMA which you may want to take to bypass the traffic and a few winding roads pass Olongapo’s busy street.
As soon as you exit SBMA, head northwest and you will pass by the towns of Castillejos, San Marcelino and then the Town of San Antonio. Once you are in San Antonio, it’s advised to ask the locals for the way to Pundaquit as it’s a bit complicated having no street signs in the area. Locals will be glad to answer you for directions.
A fool proof way to ensure you won’t get lost, hire one of the many tricycle drivers to take you there on a convoy. If you made your reservations, mention the name of the resort beforehand so they know exactly where you are going.
The best and most advisable public transport at the moment is taking a bus to San Antonio Zambales and riding a tricycle to the town of Pundaquit. Victory Liner has their schedules posted on their website and there are currently 5 bus stations in Manila with everyday trip schedules towards Sta Cruz and Iba Zambales.
Go to one of the Victory Liner bus stations and get yourself a ticket to either a bus going…...

The Go-Between

...”The Go-Between”-by Ali Smith The British writer, Ali Smith, has found much inspiration in Article thirteen in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which says that everybody has the right to freedom of movement within the borders of each state. Approximately seventy years ago, The United Nations took a moral stand against human rights crimes and adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, a proclamation of thirty human rights that everyone should be entitled to, starting memorably with Article one: “All human beings are born free and equal.” She wrote the short story “The Go-Between” to celebrate the anniversary of the proclamation. The protagonist of the short story is a 33-year-old man. He was originally from Cameroon, but in the story he is in Ceuta in Northern Morocco, where he helps people cross the border fence to Spain. He is therefore a so-called “border crosser”, a mediator between the French doctors and the refugees, or as the title implies the “Go-Between”. The story focuses on problem that occurs when the refugees who have been forbidden to cross the border, gets help from our protagonist; this ordeal is in no way in accordance to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Article fourteen of the declaration, further states that everyone has the right to seek asylum from persecution. This is not accommodated in this story where the refugees are sent back to their original countries as soon as they arrive in Europe. Because of the help that the......

...way advertisers operate. Led by Facebook and Twitter, and joined by behemoths such as Google and a bevy of start-ups, these Silicon Valley misfits have muscled into the ad business and upended traditional assumptions about how companies should allocate marketing budgets. In addition to search and display advertising, big companies must now factor in social media, video advertising, mobile marketing and daily deals. “We’ve gone from display and search to this much longer list,” says Nick Law, chief creative officer in North America for R/GA, the digital agency. “These things are connected, and you can’t do one without the other.” The promise of these platforms is tremendous. The new world of digital and social media marketing can give companies increased access to their customers, fresh insights into their preferences, a broader creative palette to work with, and additional data and metrics to study. Yet there are unsolved questions over how best to organise and execute digital and social campaigns. No single formula ‘People find it hard to realise marketing is a two­way conversation rather than a one­way pushing­out’ has emerged, leaving most companies and ad agencies in a state of constant experimentation. There is also lingering confusion over how best to measure the effectiveness of a campaign, and a company’s return on investment. Ann Lewnes, chief marketing officer of Adobe, the software company, says she pushed the company into digital and social marketing early......

Case 11 How Low Can It Go

...1. How should Johnathan describe the rationale of the devidend discount model (DDM) and demonstrate its use in calculating the justifiable price of common stock? Mô hình DDM, hay mô hình chiết khấu dòng cổ tức là một phương pháp phổ biến để xác định giá trị cổ phiếu. Bởi vì, giá trị cổ phiếu thực tế là giá trị hiện tại của tất cả các dòng tiền cổ tức tương lai mà nó hy vọng được cung cấp. Cho dù nhà đầu tư bán được cổ phiếu với giá cao hơn giá mua để sinh lời thì cái thực sự mà họ bán cũng chính là quyền lãnh cổ tức trong tương lai. Còn những cổ phiếu mà không thể trả cổ tức trong tương lai thì nó cũng có giá trị khi bán công ty hay thanh lý tài sản. Chung quy, các khoản cổ tức xác định giá trị cổ phiếu. Phương trình xác định giá cổ phiếu theo mô hình DDM là: P0 = [D1/(1+r)^1] + [D2/(1+r)^2] + … + [Dn/(1+r)^n]. Trong đó: P0 là giá cổ phiếu thường. Dn là cổ tức mỗi cổ phiếu hy vọng nhận được cuối năm n. r: tỷ suất sinh lợi đòi hỏi. Dn/(1+r)^n chính là giá trị hiện tại của cổ tức nhận cuối năm n. Chúng ta quy đổi giá trị tương lai về hiện tại là bởi vì một đồng tiền hôm nay có giá trị hơn một đồng tiền nhận được vào ngày mai. 2. Being a researcher, Dwayne asked Johnathan a key question, “How did you estimate the grow rates used in applying the model?” Using data given in Tables 1 and 2 explain how Johnathan should respond.

How to Go Green

...  How to go green Carlos Grande Warc Best Practice October 2008        Title:    Author(s):    Source:    Issue:   How to go green Carlos Grande Warc Best Practice October 2008 How to go green Carlos Grande Green marketing is a challenge that brands are finding increasingly hard to ignore. As awareness of climate change has risen, many marketers want to show a heightened commitment to reducing their environmental impact and offer consumers greener alternatives. Yet there is conflicting evidence about consumers' loyalty to green products and ill-advised campaigns can be accused of 'greenwash' (over-claiming the environmental benefits of a product, service or company policy to put the brand in a better light). Despite the risks, there are some essential elements to creating and maintaining an authentic green marketing strategy. This guide summarises these and provides information on more detailed related articles available on WARC Online. While these elements are not a quick fix, they provide a checklist for brands. Crucially, many key components of a green marketing strategy need to be in place before using these in external communications campaigns. What is green marketing? Green marketing is the promotion of goods, services and policies that claim to mitigate the environmental damage caused by human behaviour or, more rarely, produce an actual environmental benefit. Historically, green marketing formed part of corporate social responsibility agendas. In...

How Far Does the Trade Facilitation Negotiation Text (Rev.16) Go Beyond the Wco Revised Kyoto Convention (Rkc)

...Analytical Note SC/TDP/AN/TF/2 June 2013 Original: English HOW FAR DOES THE TRADE FACILITATION NEGOTIATION TEXT (REV.16) GO BEYOND THE WCO REVISED KYOTO CONVENTION (RKC)? SYNOPSIS This Note assesses the extent to which the Trade Facilitation negotiation text (Rev.16) goes beyond the WCO Revised Kyoto Convention (RKC). The backdrop to this Note is the erroneous view that the TF Agreement only differs slightly from the WCO RKC. This assessment finds that  The RKC has a much more limited Membership than the WTO. Seventy-odd WTO Members are not Contracting Party to the RKC. In Africa, only 6 have accepted all the provisions of the Convention.  Around half of the articles of the TF negotiation text introduce a new legally binding obligation where no related provisions exist in the RKC. Examples are Interval between Publication and Entry into Force, Opportunity to Comment on New and Amended Rules, Advance Rulings, Disciplines on Fees and Charges Imposed on or in Connection with Importation and Exportation, Post-clearance Audit, Establishment and Publication of Average Release Times, Prohibition of Consular Transaction Requirement and Preshipment Inspections.  For another half of the TF provisions there are indeed related provisions in the RKC but the TF Agreement introduces a stronger, broader and/or a more legally binding commitment. June 2013 Geneva, Switzerland This Analytical Note is produced by the Trade for Development Programme (TDP) of the South Centre to......

...Go Green Marijuana is a harmful plant; at least, that’s what we are told, right? That this is a horrible substance that is never to be found in society, but what if it is not as harmful as other substances used my millions daily without question? Many people conclude that marijuana is harmful in many ways, including brain damage, damage to the reproductive system, and weakening of the immune system. People against marijuana attempt to convince others that marijuana is a "gateway drug" that leads the users to venture into much harder drugs. I believe that research to support anything can be found if one is looking hard enough, but that the fallacy of this conclusion is due to research seeking facts to support an already-assumed conclusion. Marijuana has been part of human society since the beginning of civilization. Indian priests wrote about its use in religious ceremonies, and Chinese emperors wrote about its medicinal use (UXL). However, since the beginning of the 20th century, most countries have enacted laws against the cultivation, possession or transfer of cannabis. These laws have impacted adversely on the cannabis plant's cultivation for non-recreational purposes, but there are many regions where, under certain circumstances, handling of cannabis is legal or licensed. Many jurisdictions have lessened the penalties for possession of small quantities of cannabis, so that it is punished by confiscation and sometimes a fine, rather than imprisonment, focusing more on...

Miles to Go

...MILES TO GO These CEOs say IT can go much further in helping them solve their business problems BY JOHN FOLEY WITH THE CEOs OF FIVE MAJOR COMPANIES sitting across from him, Microsoft group VP Jeff Raikes recently described how he uses three tablet PCs in his daily work, keeping his data synced up via Microsoft software. The place was a conference room at Microsoft’s headquarters; the subject, IT and business productivity. It was an unscripted anecdote of how one busy high-tech exec stays at the top of his game—and a stark reminder of the gap that separates power users like Raikes from millions of information workers. The discussion came at the tail end of Microsoft’s annual CEO Summit, attended by about 100 chief executives on May 21 and 22. They had gotten a full dose from Microsoft’s senior managers on the company’s business-technology strategy and philosophy—and dinner at the home of chairman and chief software architect Bill Gates. Each attendee was given a new tablet PC loaded with the latest Microsoft productivity tools to use during the conference and, if they chose, to take with them. Yet, as impressed as they might be with the gadgetry and software demonstrations, the CEOs at Raikes’ roundtable discussion— representing Accenture, Best Buy, Flextronics, Premera Blue Cross, and Siemens USA—made it clear that neither Microsoft nor the rest of the IT industry has satisfied all their companies’ needs when it comes to using IT to solve......

...has evolved during our working life and with which we feel comfortable. Bear in mind, however, that your management style is probably heavily influenced by your country of origin. Different countries tend to develop different approaches to management and corporate structure. Some people are comfortable with the concept of hierarchy; others are not. Some people see managers as mentors who are there to encourage and coach; others expect a more instructional approach from the boss. When working in a multi-cultural environment you need to be aware of: * Your personal style and how this may be viewed by people from other countries * The expectations of other cultures with regard to how they expect to be managed * The need to communicate your own approach to working so that your international colleagues or clients are not left feeling confused and unsure of your intentions How will decisions be arrived at within your team or sphere of influence? Will the boss make the decisions and then issue instructions or will a more consensus-style be developed in which all group members are encouraged to participate in the process? Whichever style is adopted it is imperative that the process is understood by everybody from a very early stage in the life-cycle of working with people from other cultures: Interactions with a multi-cultural dimension work most effectively when: * Everybody is engaged in a debate about the decision-making process at an early stage ...

The Go-Between

...The Go-Between This short story ”The Go-Between” is written by Ali Smith in 2009. The short story was written with a bunch of other stories, to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the United Nations’ adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The narrator in the short story is a 33 years old former microbiologist from Cameroun, that has ran from his own country and now works as a go-between guide for refugees, that’s seeking a normal life in Europe. He is situated in the Spanish town Ceuta in Morocco, where he is creating contact between the refugees and the international doctors, which are helping. The narrator has tried fleeing a lot of times himself, but it hasn’t worked yet. A lot of the refugees are hit by “the Spanish blindness”, that means they just focus on Spain and getting there. They have paid whatsoever for getting there. “The Network” is what the refugees are paying – paying to getting to Spain. The Network isn’t trusted though. ”All the men in this building suffer from it, Spanish Blindness. All you can see is Spain. All you can think is Spain tonight, Spain tonight. They have paid all their money to the Network, and the Network has promised a boat, maybe tonight. This boat never comes.” (p.4, l.73-75) The way of writing in this short story plays a big deal. The author, Ali Smith, gets his message through via a very directly way, by using a first person narrator. He’s is taking use of short sentences, which is making the reader feeling more......

Jennifer Go-Go

...Case Study 1 1. How should Jennifer go about making her decision? Jennifer should evaluate each proposal and use criteria that will fairly indicate what project would be best to invest additional money in to for future growth and savings. She can use project selection and develop a set of criteria against which the project will be evaluated, list assumptions that will be used as the basis of the project, gather data and information, and evaluate each project against the determined criteria. 2. What kind of additional data or information should she collect? I believe that she should request information or data regarding the scope, schedule, cost, and customer satisfaction expectations of the projects and their goals. I have explained each below for better understanding. Scope – All the work that must be done to produce all the project deliverables that meet the customer requirements and acceptance criteria and accomplish the project objective. Schedule – A timetable for a project indicating when activities are planned or need to be started and finished. Cost – The overall cost it will require to complete the project in its entirety. Customer Satisfaction – After the project has been completed the customer feels as if they have received the services expected and the project was completed to their standards and expectations. However I know these can be considered restraints and that should be a heavily weighed factor in the decision making in the end. 3. What exactly......

Go Variatns

...variants[edit] The difficulty in defining the rules of Go has led to the creation of many subtly different rulesets. They vary in areas like scoring method, ko, suicide, handicap placement, and how neutral points are dealt with at the end. These differences are usually small enough to maintain the character and strategy of the game, and are typically not considered variants. Different rulesets are explained in Rules of Go. In some of the examples below, the effects of rule differences on actual play are minor, but the tactical consequences are substantial. Tibetan Go[edit] The starting position for Tibetan Go Tibetan Go is played on a 17×17 board, and starts with six stones (called Bo) from each color placed on the third line as shown. White makes the first move.[1] There is a unique ko rule: a stone may not be played at an intersection where the opponent has just removed a stone. This ko rule is so different from other major rulesets that it alone significantly changes the character of the game. For instance, snapbacks must be delayed by at least one move, allowing an opponent the chance to create life. Finally, a player who occupies or surrounds all four corner points (the 1-1 points) receives a bonus of 40 points, and if he controls the center point also, he receives a further bonus of 10 points.

How You Would Go About Managing Your Work Priorities and Professional Development. you would go about managing your work priorities and professional development. 1. What makes a good role model and how would I ensure that I acted as a role model for employees I supervise? A good role model to me is someone that inspires me and I aspire to be like. A good role model needs to have a positive, approachable demeanour. I believe a role model provides inspiration and motivation to seek out accomplishments. Role models send messages about their beliefs by what they do and say. To ensure that I acted as a role model to my employees, I would always act with integrity. I would listen to what my staff have to say and always make them feel like their opinions and contributions are worthwhile and important. I would make sure that my actions always demonstrated my beliefs and I would always demonstrate a passion for what I do. I would not make my employees do a task that I wasn’t willing or capable of doing. Acting as a good role model for my staff would incorporate in my professional development. 2.

How Low Can It Go

...Questions: 1. How should Jonathan describe the rationale of the dividend discount model (DDM) and demonstrate its use in calculating the justifiable price of common stock? The dividend discount model (DDM) states that the price of the stock at a given time is: Po= Div1/ (r-g) where; Po= value of the stock, Div1=Dividend distributed the following year, r= required rate of return, g=growth rate of dividends, the growth rate “g” is assumed to be constant. The value of the stock can also be found based on the following over time: Po = Div1/ (1+r) + Div2/ (1+r) 2 + Div3/ (1+r) 3 + (Divn +Pn)/ (1+r) n Therefore, Po, P1, P2 and Pn can be found by using the following equations; Po= (Div1+P1)/ (1+r) where; P1= (Div2+P2)/ (1+r) and Po= Div1/ (1+r) + (Div2 + P2)/ (1+r) 2. Now, P2 = (Div3+P3)/(1+r) So, Po = Div1/ (1+r) + Div2/ (1+r) 2 + (Div3 + P3)/ (1+r) 3 which can continue into infinity as indicated above with the letter “n”. 2. Being a researcher Dwayne asked Jonathan a key question, “How did you estimate the growth rate(s) used in applying the model?” Using the data given in Tables 1 and 2 explain how Jonathan should respond. Since we are assuming that the growth rate of dividends is constant we will only need to be concerned with the first and last dividend values given. This is shown by rearranging the following equation: Div1*(1+g) n = Divn, therefore g = (Divn/Div1)1/n – 1 Using the data given, we compute the growth rate to be: g = (0.94/0.6)1/9 – 1 = 5.11%...
