Minsan sa sobrang galit ko, binigyan ko ng uppercut ang isang kabayo. Sa Ladies and gentlemen: I am happy, despite my chronic fatigue syndrome, to come to this campus of the Lyceum of the Philippines University at Batangas City. I have several reasons for defying my doctors in coming here: In , CHED gave to Lyceum the highest award for a university — the award of autonomous status; In , the Philippine Association of Colleges and Universities cited Lyceum for the highest number of accredited programs in this region, and the second highest in the entire country; And most important of all — Lyceum Batangas rivals Metro Manila universities in terms of population — 9, students, who will be voters in the presidential and senatorial elections.
Hence, I have come in recognition of the fact that some of you will become senators like my good friend and mentor, Dr. Sotero H. And at least one of you, I predict, like President Jose P. Laurel, will someday become Leadership is defined as "a process of social influence in which one person can enlist the aid and support of others in the accomplishment of a common task.
Consideration, which emphasizes good relations.
A leader is friendly, approachable, and a Initiating structure, which stresses behaviour involved in directing the organization and helping it to define and achieve its goals.
From these two dimensions, we can conclude that a leader performs three basic functions: These functions are essential in the success of a leader. Transactional or managerial leadership is a leadership style that promotes Transactional leadership is an effective strategy for projects that must closely follow standards to succeed. Transactional leaders are also especially effective in times of crisis, such as the supertyphoon Yolanda.
Transactional leadership can be very effective in Good coaches of sports teams are transactional leaders. Sports teams operate within rules with very little flexibility, and adherence to organizational norms is the key to their success. Good coaches are able to motivate their team members to play and win.
This leadership style stresses leading by example. This is the kind of leader whom we should elect in I call on the legendary courage of the Batanguenos to reject any leader involved in the PlO billion pork barrel scandal, and to reelect senators who are fighting to uphold justice among the suspects, despite efforts at black propaganda by the mastermind in the Senate of the plunder conspiracy.
We do not have to choose between these two kinds of leadership; instead we should use both of them. The full range approach of leadership seeks to blend the best aspects of transactional and transformational leadership into one comprehensive approach. In this approach, the leader uses these techniques from transactional leaders: Aside from transactional and transformational leadership, there are other leadership perspectives, namely, moral leadership, servant leadership, shared leadership, and emotional leadership, among others.
Moral or ethical leadership focuses on how leaders use their social power in the decisions they make, actions they engage in, and ways they influence others. An effective leader Thus, a moral leader has moral influence over his or her followers. Servant leadership is exercised when the leader is destined to work for people and the community. A servant leader looks at what people need and asks how to help people to solve problems. Shared leadership means that leadership is distributed within a team, and people within that Emotional leadership is a process that leaders use to influence their followers in a common goal.
Leaders in a positive mood can impact their group in a positive way. Charismatic leaders can transmit their emotions and influence followers through "emotional contagion.
Leaders are not born; it takes practice to develop the qualities of a leader. Here are some ways to be a leader and develop leadership abilities: Become an officer of the glee club, the debate team, the student government, or your class.
Just step up! Play to your strengths. Get involved in something you are passionate about. Being a team player is also a valuable leadership skill. Sign up for more than one activity. Take time to You might find a hidden talent you never knew you had. Be involved in the larger community outside your campus. It shows that you care, that you are versatile, and that you want to make a difference. Good student leaders share the following characteristics: Integrity is the foundation of leadership, and it is especially important for students trying to establish themselves as Leaders with integrity are trustworthy, honest, and able to consistently follow- through on their promises.
Compassion for others. A desire to help others succeed and a simple willingness to help others is the most genuine trait of a student leader. Showing you care motivates other students to follow your example.
Student leaders step in when Student leaders are typically self- starters who push themselves to succeed. Student leaders need to have a vision and a sense of purpose to accomplish things. The presidential elections will be a test As potential leaders of our country, you should practice as leaders by advising your respective communities about the pork barrel scandal in relation to the elections, as follows: The Supreme Court has declared pork barrel as unconstitutional.
But during the time when pork I refer to those who are elected senators and representatives. This sordid case of plunder in our political history is evidence that corruption is caused by a top-down process. Therefore, we should not reelect any senators or congressmen running for reelection in , if they Of course, every person enjoys a presumption of innocence. But when the Ombudsman conducts the preliminary investigation, she goes over voluminous papers and other documents, as well as affidavits executed by eyewitnesses.
She has to do this, because under the law, the Ombudsman who is the prosecutor in this case, has to prove what the law calls a prima facie case. The term prima facie is a Latin phrase which means at first sight, or on first appearance, but subject to further evidence or information. Hence, if the Ombudsman files a case against a reelectionist for plunder in the Sandiganbayan, this means that she has in her possession enough evidence to allow the trial court While all this investigation is going on, particularly on television when the Blue Ribbon Committee conducts hearings and examines alleged witnesses, you will notice that certain politicians and other members of the high and mighty in society are conspicuous by their silence.
Politicians who purposely refrain from participating in the national debate on the pork barrel scandal are politicians who are cowards, because they refuse to take This kind of cowardice is anathema to leadership. Hence, in conclusion, I urge you to go back to your community, and advise your relatives and neighbors to reject politicians who are consistently silent on the pork barrel scandal.
Silence means that the particular politician is willing to make friends with anybody, right or wrong, corrupt or honest, as This is the mantra of the unprincipled person. In other words, that candidate is an opportunist. He does not act out of conviction, but acts out of what is convenient for himself.
This is the test I want you to apply, as the elections approach. Apply the test of leadership among the candidates. In my view, leadership is the courage to take risks in defense of a position that is both legal and The politician who tries to become a wise guy by becoming friends to everybody — corrupt or not — is not a leader.
That kind of a politician does not deserve to be invited to the Lyceum of the Philippines University. That kind of politician I abhor at first sight, and that kind of crook I will fight to the death, even if he has all the money and power in our country; and even if he can afford to pay an entire army of I will take my courage from you people — the great, the good, the very brave Batanguenos A survey was conducted to find out what is the first thing men look at when a beautiful woman passes by.
Men are like horoscopes, they always tell you what to do and are usually wrong.
A smart wife is one who makes sure she spends so What is the punishment for bigamy? Two wives. It is very important that you should choose the person you will marry and stay with that person. There are many people now who believe in serial love, loving one person after another. I think we should get it over with. You only get it once I am very happy to say that is what happened to me.
I am completely immune to any temptation. All men who have passed my life after I got married might as well have been sticks of furniture. I only tell lies to my husband.
When I got married, I noticed immediately that there seems to be a rivalry between the egos of two people. If you are in a relationship, stop trying to figure out who wears the pants between the two of you. Relationships work best when both of you are not There is a recent study that more than 60 percent of married men in Metro Manila are unfaithful to their wives. This is because the remaining 40 percent bring their mistresses to the provinces. Ang tawag doon ay wedding cake. Have a girl to help you at work.
Have a girl who can make you laugh. Have a girl who spoils you. Lastly, and most importantly, Siguraduhin na hindi magkakakilala ang apat na babaeng iyon.
A couple is lying in bed. The man says: Marriages are made in heaven. But then again, so are thunder and lightning.
The trouble starts when they try to decide which one. Before marriage, a man will lie awake all night thinking about something she said. After marriage, he will fall asleep before she finishes talking. After marriage, that is self-defense Marriage is love. Love is blind.
Therefore, marriage is an institution for the blind. Marriage is not a word. It is a sentence —a life sentence. Love, may taning na ang buhay ko. Heh, tumigil ka nga! Maaga pa akong gigising bukas, buti ikaw, hindi na!
Parati na lang tayo nag- aaway! Maghiwalay na lang tayo! Sige, maghati tayo ng mga anak! Akin ang mga guwapo at maganda! Pinili pa yung hindi kanya! Ano sa Tagalog ang: The worst thing about being married is Advantage at disadvantage ng may- asawa: Pag kailangan mo, nandiyan agad.
Pag ayaw mo na, andiyan pa rin! I married the wrong man. When the husband says, "Ako ang tigas sa amin. He really means, "Hoy, pakibilisan mo naman iyang kape, please, at giniginaw na ako dito sa labahan! Adik sa droga: Payag ka na bang magpakasal sa akin?
Oo, pero ok lang ba sa iyo kung meron akong past? Ok lang, wala naman akong future eh! Ibili mo naman ako ng bagong bra. Eh, bakit ikaw, nagbi-brief? Husband says: Wife replied: My husband and I have what he calls Olympic sex. Wow, you must be having a terrific sex life!
It only happens once in 4 years. May isang husband na proud na proud na may anim na anak silang mag-asawa. Sobrang proud siya na ang laging tawag niya sa wife niya ay "Mother of Six.

My generation has invested all that it has — not only its love, but also its hope and faith — in your generation. Hence, allow me to share with you what life has taught me, and in the end to encapsulate for you the meaning of life. First, life teaches us that, whether we perceive Human beings have inhabited this planet for only , years or.
The earth worked perfectly well without us for billions of years, and it will continue to do so even when we are gone. This fact makes our existence seem more like a happy accident than a carefully thought-out plan.
The second important lesson that life has taught me Instead, the meaning of life is what you choose to make it mean. Life is the consequence of our moral choices. There are three ways to make your life more meaningful: First, get connected.

While a busy social Second, do not shy away from stress. The things that add the most meaning to our lives — a high-pressure job or caring for a loved one — are often the same things that add the most stress to our day-to-day existence. However, taking the easy road is not always the better option. The biggest challenges in life often lead to Third, find a sense of purpose. Studies show that people who spend more time pursuing activities that reflected their sense of self were the people who found their lives more meaningful.
A life filled with meaning is linked to doing things that express and reflect the self. ASEAN integration. Integration means that as a rule, every ASEAN country will treat people and products from any country in the whole ASEAN region, as if they are the people and products coming from the country itself.
Thus, integration will mean that in ASEAN among ourselves we will pay less taxes, less customs duties, and less import taxes. All separate neighbors will become bound together into one whole called ASEAN Common Market, with each country entitled to equal participation and membership. In , the ASEAN integration will allow the ten countries and over half a billion people to participate in the free flow of goods, services, labor, capital, and foreign investment.
Ultimately, integration will foster greater cooperation and healthy competition in the region. One advantage is the opening up of job markets in the region. While many Filipinos already work in other ASEAN countries, the process of looking for jobs abroad will be made easier by the integration.
But this also means that the job market will be fiercer. However, we have an advantage because we are highly adaptable. We can easily adapt to multicultural Another advantage is the regional community approach to integration of education in the region.

This integration is the main reason why some Philippine universities have synchronized their school calendars in with those of their counterparts in other ASEAN countries.
