No other woman From my perspective, this movie itself is a culture based because culture appeared from a long time ago. We keep on talking with our emotions and expressing our ideas to one another. This is similar to one of our culture in our own country. No matter transmission or ritual, they are both related. We communicate through culture and the world is changing so fast. We have to catch up the stage so that we won’t left behind.
It’s true that we filipinos are naturally fond of watching movies where we base our life, Filipinos are truly one of the most cheerful and optimistic people in the world. We love to laugh, share jokes and make fools of ourselves all in the spirit of fun. We find humor in almost every situation no matter how dire or depressing it is. Even in the midst of poverty, you can still see the smiles on the faces of the little kids playing on the streets or witness the animated expressions of the men and women gathered together sharing stories in their tambayan. Humor even finds its way into politics, the historical impeachment trial of Chief Justice Renato Corona has had its share of quite a number of funny and dramatic moments. In every aspect of our daily lives, we can always make the best of any situation and turn it into a fun circumstance. And it’s this natural hopefulness that gets us through the different problems we encounter every day. In good and bad times, in sickness and health, we are counted on laughters , dramas , tears to lift us up.
Since the television and technologies arose; Filipinos have been forever glued to moving pictures inside a box. From toddlers to grandparents, countless hours have been spent in front of the television. Our senses have enjoyed a lack of options: streaming videos, YouTube movies, star cinema, GMA films, viva films and so on. But in spite of all the options in front of us, we…...

The Other Woman Falls Short

...THE OTHER WOMAN FALLS SHORT No Other Woman (2011) had been awarded an A by the Cinema Evaluation Board and had earned quite a profit during it’s screening. Such popularity gained by No Other Woman may have been because it was dealing with such a risky theme: infidelity. Since it encompasses on emotions that are very intricate, a story involving infidelity is quite hard to develop and should, therefore, be handled carefully. Filled with monumental one-liners, memorable catfights and snide remarks, heartwrenching breakdowns and revelations, No Other Woman proved to have been a courageous take on the subject of unfaithfulness. It may have started strong, but it ended up seemingly like a camp teleserye squeezed into a two-hour movie. What great promise the movie showed at the beginning fizzles as the end falls short in fortifying the story. Ram Escaler (Derek Ramsey), a furniture designer and supplier, is happily married to demure but beautiful Charmaine (Cristine Reyes). He is quite handsome, complete with the toned muscles and a devilishly charming smile, and thus captures the interest of gorgeous Zalderiaga heiress, Kara (Anne Curtis). Ram meets Kara, as she is the daughter of the owner of the resort that he provides furniture for. Although he had a devoted wife who loves and cares for him, Ram cannot help but be drawn towards the carefree and brass Kara. There is obvious attraction between the two but Ram resists the charms of Kara at first. To complicate things more,......

...changed me as a person, but for others it is something that they are not comfortable with. It is foreign and hard to understand, but that is only through a quick look at only a section of what it really is. Through the years I have heard the same old thing; they all look like girls, I don’t understand what they are saying so I refuse to listen. Through Korean pop music, I have a better understanding of the world around me and my peers. It has not only given me insight about the hardships people go through but about the hardships foreign teens go through as people also when they go to a new country. When people see them the same thoughts come to people’s heads. They don’t understand them, so they don’t want to talk to them. It is amazing how much you can learn about society just from a genre of music. It is legendary, it is called the Hallyu or here in Canada and other parts of the world, it is known as the Korean Wave. Quickly and rapidly since 1992 Korea has been creating a storm that has been sweeping all over the world and leaving people in awe. Many Kpop groups have not only become nationally famous but have become internationally famous as well. Psy, SHINee, Super Junior, Big Bang, 2NE1 and Girls Generation are only a few examples groups that have made it into the US and Canadian music stream. Their fans are loyal, and sometimes, or in sometimes a lot of the times can go overboard. There have been cases of violence, where fans have attacked other fans. Fan clubs are a......

A Woman of Standards

...A Woman of Standards Traditionally considered a subservient sex, the female role has only recently been allowed to surface under the scrutiny of the public eye. In the decades before it, women are undermined and repressed by the men that govern their very essence of being. Men, according to Jean-Jacque Rousseau in his piece Émile, do not require the presence of a woman in his life to retain his position of power, yet by the “laws of nature” women without a man has no control over her own social situation (257). Literature in the both the Enlightenment and Romantic eras help illuminate these ideas by enforcing a significant emphasis on the role and dress of the properly educated female and how that affects, or cannot affect, their standing in society. Elaborating on his previous point, Rousseau points out that, “everything that characterizes sex should be respected as established by nature” (256). The differences in both temperament and character of men and women would likewise indicate how their education ought to be in a natural balance against each other, specializing in different but similar actions (Rousseau 256). To better reinforce his theory, Rousseau challenges mothers to “try to educate them [their daughters] like men. They will be quite willing. But the more they resemble men the less will be their power over men, and the greater their own subjection” (256). The more womanly a female is, the better off she will be. If she retains her proper role, she can only...

Sorrowful Woman

...Sorrowful Woman 1. FIRST RESPONSE. How did you respond to the excerpt from A SECRET SORROW and to “A Sorrowful Woman”? Do you like one more than the other? Is one of the women – Faye or Godwin’s unnamed wife – more likable than the other? Why do you think you respond the way you do to the characters and the stories – is your response intellectual, emotional, a result of authorial intent, a mix of these, or something else entirely? Both writings were very well written and very enjoyable to read. “The Sorrowful Woman” and A Secret Sorrow were similar, although they were very different, due to the inner sorrow they both faced. I enjoyed reading A Secret Sorrow more than “The Sorrowful Woman” due to the fact that I was able to somewhat feel what Godwin’s unnamed wife was feeling. I responded to the characters in an emotional way. I found myself able to sympathize with both Faye and Godwin’s unnamed wife. They both have very deep issues, but being a mother myself, makes me have more empathy for Faye. I could not imagine what it would be to want to push my child or husband, nor could I imagine not being able to have a child of my own. 2. Describe what you found appealing in each story. Can you point to passages in both that strike you as especially well written or interesting? Was there anything in either story that did not appeal to you? Why? In A Secret Sorrow, I found Kai’s love for Faye most appealing. He did not look at Faye’s inability to have children not as a......

...to each question. Your style need not be formal, but it should be polished and thoughtful. WRITE YOUR OWN THOUGHTS, and DO NOT use outside internet sources or any other resources, other than for context. Steps to follow in writing a play analysis: CONTEXT: Consider the period setting of the play, and then research the events of the world during that time period. For example, if you are analyzing a play that takes place during the great depression, you will need to research and understand the current events and everyday human concerns of that period in order to write a dramaturgical analysis. The time setting is the most important part of dissecting the inner workings of a play. Characters are defined by their environments, just as we human beings are. So understanding the world events of a play's time period is essential in order to truly grasp the intended setting. When writing your analysis, include not only the broad events of the period, but also smaller scale concerns that would have affected the characters in the play at that time. These smaller, more personal glimpses into life during the period will actually prove to be the most beneficial to someone reading your analysis. CHARACTER: Analyze each character, answering the following questions: Who is the character? How is the character related to the other characters in the play? What is the character's position/job in the world? What does the character want? How does the character go about achieving what he or she......

...communication, the individual is left with no support and clarity of his/ her social surroundings. The field of communication offers knowledge and understanding between family members and individuals. Family communication is the foundation that strengthens family interaction. Lack of communication affects behaviors and attitudes. Young people who reported feeling a lack of parental warmth, love, or caring were also more likely to report emotional distress, lower self-esteem, school problems, drug use, and sexual risk behaviors. In addition, weak family relationships fail to provide the emotional support that teenagers require. This lack of attention and affection from family resulting in depression forces them to seek love and support from other people, especially members of the opposite sex (Speedy Remedies, 2010) Parental guidance According to Cummins, J. (2016) lack of guidance before teens that are ready for independence is one of the causes of teenage pregnancy. Adolescents push boundaries.  While most parents are liable to think that they can do the least to affect a teenager’s behavior, it is rather essential that they at least attempt. A parent’s guidance is the most important tool in preventing teenage pregnancy.  Parental guidance plays a major role in prevention of teenage pregnancy. Many parents fail to educate their children about sex. In some cases, they provide false information regarding sex in an effort to discourage their children from......

...Definition of Race Race is a group of people of common ancestry, distinguished from others by physical characteristics, such as hair type, the color of eyes and skin. Race as a social construction is changing as time goes on. Our daily lives are affected by race whether we are aware of it or not. We can see all over the world that race has affected various domains of our lives. From the types of jobs we have the amount of money we make, the kinds of friends we keep, the food we eat and even the schools we will attend. The entire foundation of race is constructed on a platform based on the color of people’s skin. The construction of social reality is based on social groups and the agreements and disagreements that are made based on the acceptance of certain constructions when it comes to our existence. There is nothing biologically real about race. I have learned that that there is no certain identification of race that exists from our collective agreements, acceptance, and positions other than our existing with one another. Race is a social construction that has real consequences and effects. Race shapes the way we view ourselves and those around us. We shouldn’t have an objective knowledge about race. We can know what race is and how it works being aware that regardless of the various shifts in the meaning of race that they have occurred through history and going to occur geographically but this should not lead to skepticism and the destruction of positive social......

That Woman Cried

...That Woman Cried Written by KyuSe7en501 Note: Forgive me if I ain’t good in writing. T_T Twenty- fourth of January a woman appeared before my eyes. She was crying, really, really hard. I didn’t know what to do, I was at a total loss of words. Since then, I started wondering why women cry; are they just fond of crying, or, do they cry for something men don’t understand? As a man myself I want to know the answer. Not that I love to interfere with their sorrows but I just want to have my curiosity get answered. Do they cry for no reason? Some people say women are beyond emotional. They cry because their hearts are soft, they also waste tears because they are partly weak, in comparison with men. I thought those were enough for me to get my mouth closed. I thought those were the best answers for my questions. But then I realized I could discover it myself, and learn things up through women. Months have passed since the day I found that woman crying; I finally got to see her again in a restaurant. She wasn’t crying at all, nor was she sad. She was all smiling --- so beautifully. Her wide smile made my heart filled with wonderfulness; She also had her hair pony tailed which made her long slender neck appear publicly. Those assets were so nice to see that I wanted to talk to her and get to know her better. She was so beautiful like a goddess. Upon my amazement followed the complete sense of surprise. A man, with a child by his side, got an appearance toward the woman,......
