OPM MONDAY ~ PAROKYA NI EDGAR

It's monday! And this is my first time to have this very own portion for this blog. Unlike the usual "Music Monday" where bloggers are free to choose their music, my very own "OPM Monday" (as what the name suggest) will give focus to all Original Pinoy Music. Every Monday, i will feature one Filipino Music Artist.
And for this Monday, December 28 ( just a day after my birthday^^) , I will feature one of my favorite pinoy band ~
PAROKYA NI EDGAR

Parokya ni Edgar is a Filipino band that was formed in 1993 by a group of Ateneo de Manila High School students. The band is famous and most lauded for its original rock novelty songs and often satirical covers of famous songs. The band has since transcended musical genres, varying styles from one song to another - alternative rock to pop rock, funk to rapcore, and so on - while providing comic relief to their listeners.
Naming themselves Comic Relief, the band originally consisted of three vocalists - Alfonso "Chito" Miranda, Jr., Jeric Estaco, Francis Vincent "Vinci" Montaner, and two guitarists, Miko Yap and Gabriel Ignatius "Gab" Chee Kee.
Since their inception, Parokya ni Edgar has enjoyed unmatched staying power in the recording scene of the Philippines. Chito Miranda has served as the band's frontman, filtering the band's output to the taste of its audience.

Here are some of their greatest hits

Web Market

Nowadays, the competition in the web market is getting tougher and tougher everyday. The competition mostlytakes place on how popular the site is. The more popular the site, the more chances to attract customer to buy their products. If you are one of those entreprenuers who's planning to build an online business and promote their product in the global web market, then you must have to exert extra effort in order for your product/services to be recognized. One of the best way is to submit your product at Free Press Release. It's a useful site that offers free press release distribution service.

The Law of Similarity

What is the best way to make your relationship last longer? Nowadays, most relationship ends up in divorse or separation. But why are they reaching that point that both of them will decide to separate? I just found it out after reading Arina's Self Help Blog and her article about 10 Most Important Relationship Laws. One of the lwas that she tackled is the Law of Similarity which states that We attract people who are similar to us, because we resonate with them. Meaning to say, in every relationship, both of you and your partner should focus on your similarities rather than your differences. In this way, your relationship will establish a strong foundation and will make it last longer!

Apartamentos!

One of my dream is to visit the wonderful country of Panama. Panama is in the sounthernmost part of the central America along with outher wonderful countries like Guatemala, Costa Rica and El Salvador. the reasons why i love to be there is because i have relatives in this country and it would be exciting to meet them personally. I talked to them about this and they are more than willing to see me however they told me that their space is not enough to accomodate me and the only option i have is to rent a space in a hotel or somewhere else. Luckily, as i was searching over the Net, i found out that in Panama there's what they called "Rentas Cortas de Apartamentos en Panama" This is where you can rent an apartment for a dhort period of time while you were on your trip. This is very ideal for travelers who want to visit Panama. If you are interested, just visit http://www.rentascortaspanama.com/ and see more details about their apartments.

Wonders of Panama

Do you have any plans for your family this upcoming Holiday Season? Why don't you treat them for an out of country journey. That would be exciting knowing that all of you will gonna have a trip together. But if ever that "out of the country" plan will work, which country are going to visit? For me, one of the best place is Panama. There are many attractive places and landmarks in this country and all of you will surely enjoy. And ofcourse don't forget to book a space for hotels. Hotels are good, however, they are very expensive. Good thing, i have heard that there are Private Apartments in Panama or in Spanish they called it "Apartamentos vacacionales en Panama"that is open for rental services and offer great packages so you do not have to worry about anything. So what are you waiting for? Pack up all your things and bring your family and visit the wonderful country of Panama.

The Maguindanao massacre, also known as the Ampatuan massacre (after the town where the mass graves were found), occurred on the morning of November 23, 2009, in the town of Ampatuan in Maguindanao province, on the island of Mindanao in the Philippines. The victims were about to file a certificate of candidacy for Esmael Mangudadatu, vice mayor of Buluan town. Mangudadatu was challenging Datu Unsay mayor Andal Ampatuan, Jr., son of the incumbent Maguindanao governor Datu Andal Ampatuan Sr., in the forthcoming Maguindanao gubernatorial election, part of the national elections in 2010. Those killed included Mangudadatu's wife, his two sisters, lawyers, aides, and motorists who were witnesses or were mistakenly identified as part of the convoy. Even before the Maguindanao massacre, the CPJ had labeled the Philippines the second most dangerous country for journalists, second only to Iraq. The Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) has called the Maguindanao massacre the single deadliest event for journalists in history. Thirty-four journalists are known to have been abducted and killed in the massacre, according to the Philippine Daily Inquirer.

Essay Writing

It was such a shame for a college student like me is having a hard time constructing a simple essay. According to my teacher, way back in high School, an essay follows a certain format. If there’s one thing that I’m regretting about in High School, I guess that would be those times when I’m not listening to my teachers. Honestly, I failed most of my English subjects because I’m having a hard time constructing my sentences and to deliver them properly. A friend advised me to visit www.professays.com and see how the site could help me. The site offer custom essays, research papers and term papers which are exactly what I need for my school. They even have some sample essays that you can download and serve as your guide in making your own personal essays.

Political Advertisements!

Here i gathered all the Campaign Advertisements of all the Presidential Candidates of the upcoming 2010 election. It's time for us to decide, which is the best campaign ad. Let's just have some fun with these videos. Who do you think will fall for the following category:
Best Screenplay
Best Music Background

Most Funniest
Best Script
Best Motto

Best Actor/Actress


Let's start with Noynoy Aquino III's campaign ad entitled "Hindi ka nagiisa"



Almost everyone love this video knowing that most high-profile celebrities from 2 giant tv stations are present in this political campaign in support for Noynoy candidacy. The message of the song is very inspiring too!
Criticism:
Most of the critics said that this is too showbiz for Noynoy and his using his parents to make people sympathized with him in order to attract voters for the upcoming election!
It's quite funny because Noynoy didnt say any single word until the end of his video.

Next is Joseph Estrada, Sorry but i don't have a copy of his political ad but the advertisement is all about a compilation of all the things happen to him after his resignation.
but Erap gave as a hint with his Athro Commercial.


Now this is funny and it seems that Erap is having a difficulty in breathing!(lolz)

Next is Gilberto Teodoro in his Campaign ad entitled "Galing at Talino" showing some video clip of his service as the Secretary of Defense


The Script and the message was delivered properly aiming to educate viewer that a good leader is a leader that uses his brain and ability to raise our country from poverty and economical crisis.

Among all the Presidential candidates, Manny Villar have the most number of commercials. Here's one of them


Manny's theme "Sipag at Tiyaga" shows how hard working he was and the commercial is intended to inform its viewers that "Ang taong laki sa hirap tumutulong sa mga mahihirap"

In the other side, Bayani Fernando shows how string his personality is in his commercial entitled "Kailangan Bayani".


According to him, the right leader is the one who have political will!

Along with all the presidential candidates are Bro. Eddie Villanueva, Jamby Maddrigal, and Nick Perlas

Personal Essays


When I was in college, one of the most difficult parts is when our professors and instructors require us to make our research paper based on a certain topic provided by them. Gathering your materials that you will be using in your term paper would be tough but constructing your sentences and your personal essays correctly in order to deliver your research paper properly the way it should be would be the toughest one. I just found http://www.professays.com/ over the Internet and how I wish I discovered this site before when I was in college! The site offers a bunch of interesting research paper topics that would help you a lot in most of your school academic works and projects!

Manny! Victory! History!

Congratulations Manny for winning your fight against Miguel Cotto. You are really undefeatble fighter. Manny Pacquiao is really considered as an International Boxing superstar as being the first boxer to win seven world titles in seven different weight divisions. He is also the first and only boxer to win the lineal championship ("the man who beat the man who beat the man") in four different weight classes.

Pacquiao started his professional boxing career at the age of 16 at 106 lbs (Light Flyweight). His early fights took place in small local venues and were shown on Vintage Sports' Blow by Blow, an evening boxing show. His professional debut was a 4-round bout against Edmund "Enting" Ignacio on January 22, 1995, which Pacquiao won via decision, becoming an instant star of the program. Close friend Mark Penaflorida's death in 1994 spurred the young Pacquiao to pursue a professional boxing career.
Pacquiao's big break came on June 23, 2001, against IBF Super Bantamweight champion Lehlohonolo Ledwaba. Pacquiao stepped into the fight as a late replacement and won the fight by technical knockout to become the IBF Super Bantamweight champion (his second major boxing world title) on a bout held at MGM Grand, Las Vegas, Nevada. He defended this title five times and fought to a sixth-round draw against Agapito Sánchez in a bout that was stopped early after Pacquiao received two headbutts.

PACQUIAO VS BARRERA

15024689257dd8512333hr9.jpg

Pacquiao went on to defend his title four times with expert training from Freddie Roach at the Wild Card Gym, improving his hand speed and mental preparation before the match that many consider to have defined his career, a bout against Marco Antonio Barrera. Pacquiao, moving up in weight and in his first fight ever in the Featherweight division, brought his power with him and defeated Barrera via a TKO in the 11th round at the Alamodome, San Antonio, Texas. Although this fight was not recognized as a title fight by any sanctioning bodies, Pacquiao was recognized as world champion by Ring Magazine

On June 29, 2007, it was announced that Top Rank and GBP agreed to settle their lawsuit, meaning the long-awaited rematch with Marco Antonio Barrera will occur despite being the #1 contender for the Super Featherweight title of Juan Manuel Márquez.

Since Bob Arum was out on a vacation, GBP's chief executive Richard Schaefer politely declined to discuss Pacquiao’s purse from the October 6, 2007, rematch with Marco Antonio Barrera (at the Mandalay Bay Resort Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas). However, Pacquiao was likely to get a purse of $5 million, plus possibly a share of the pay-per-view rights.[14] Pacquiao defeated Barrera in their rematch via an easy unanimous decision. In the 11th round, Pacquiao's punch caused a deep cut under Barrera's right eye. Barrera retaliated with an illegal punch on the break that dazed Pacquiao but also caused the referee to deduct a point from Barrera. Two judges scored the bout 118–109, whereas the third scored it 115–112

PACQUIAO VS MARQUEZ

Juan Manuel Marquez and Manny Pacquiao

Only six months after Pacquiao's win over Mexican legend Barrera, Pacquiao went on to challenge another highly respected Mexican boxer in Juan Manuel Márquez, who at the time held both the World Boxing Association (WBA) and International Boxing Federation (IBF) Featherweight titles. The fight took place at the MGM Grand Las Vegas, on May 8, 2004, and it ended in a controversial draw that left both sets of fans feeling bitter.

On March 15, 2008, in a rematch against Juan Manuel Márquez called "Unfinished Business", Pacquiao won via a disputed split decision in a close, hard fought battle in which Pacquiao knocked Márquez down in round 3. Pacquiao won the WBC (his third major boxing world title) and The Ring Super Featherweight belts (as well as the lineal junior lightweight title), making him the first Filipino to win three major world titles in three different weight divisions (Pacquiao was a former WBC Flyweight champion and former IBF Super Bantamweight champion). Albeit, with his Ring Magazine featherweight belt, Pacquiao had arguably won four world titles in four different weight classes at this point.

During the postfight interview, Márquez’s camp called for an immediate rematch. Richard Schaefer, GBP CEO, offered a $6-million guarantee to Pacquiao for a rematch. Pacquiao's promoter, Bob Arum, still stinging from the less-than-stellar revenue from Kelly Pavlik’s immediate rematch with Jermain Taylor, said the fight will probably happen but only after there is time to “put a little air under it.” Pacquiao, for his part, said "I don't think so, this business is over" because he planned to move to lightweight (135 lbs) to challenge David Díaz, the reigning WBC Lightweight champion at that time. Díaz won the majority decision over Ramón Montano that night as an undercard of the "Unfinished Business" fight.



PACQUIAO VS VELASQUEZ
http://www.boxnews.com.ua/photos/782/Manny-Pacquiao-Hector-Velazquez13.jpg
On September 10, 2005, Manny Pacquiao fought Héctor Velázquez at Staples Center in Los Angeles, California. He knocked Velázquez out in six rounds to capture the WBC International Super Featherweight title. On the same day, his rival, Erik Morales, fought against Zahir Raheem. However, Morales fought a lackluster performance, losing to Raheem via unanimous decision.

PACQUIAO VS MORALES


http://www.aworldofboxing.com/Boxer-Profile/manny_pacquiao_vs_eric_morales.jpg

Pacquiao once again moved up another division from 126 to 130 lbs to fight another Mexican legend, three-time division champion Érik Morales on March 19, 2005, at the MGM Grand Las Vegas. However, this time around, at his first fight in the Super Featherweight division, Pacquiao lost the 12-round match by a unanimous decision from the judges.
The much-anticipated rematch between Pacquiao and Morales happened on January 21, 2006, at Thomas and Mack Center in Las Vegas. In that fight, Morales escaped being knocked down twice, one during the 2nd round by holding on to the ropes and the other on the 6th round by falling on the referee's body. Pacquiao eventually knocked Morales out in the 10th round, dealing him the first knockout loss in his boxing career.
Pacquiao and Morales fought for a third time (with the series tied 1-all) on November 18, 2006. Witnessed by a near-record crowd of 18,276, the match saw Pacquiao defeating Morales via a third-round knockout at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas. After the Pacquiao–Morales rematch, Bob Arum, Pacquiao's main promoter, announced that Manny returned his signing bonus check back to Golden Boy Promotions, signaling intentions to stay with Top Rank. This resulted in GBP's decision to sue Pacquiao over contractual breaches.At the end of 2006, he was named by both HBO and Ring Magazine as the "Fighter of the Year", with HBO also naming him as the most exciting fighter of the year.

PACQUIAO VS LARIOS

http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_kp2FrgCoRfs/R4o-9N7on6I/AAAAAAAAA8E/_kriWGjK9Ls/s400/pacquiao-larios.jpg

On July 2, 2006(before Pacquiao-Morales third fight), Pacquiao defeated Óscar Larios, a two-time Super Bantamweight champion who had moved up two weight divisions in order to face Pacquiao. Despite his camp's big promise of an early knockout, the fight went until the final round, with Pacquiao knocking down Larios two times during the 12-round bout for the WBC International Super Featherweight title held at the Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City, Philippines.

PACQUIAO VS SOLIS
http://www.philboxing.com/specials/pacquiao_vs_solis/pac-solis.070414.02.500w.jpg

After a failed promotional negotiation with Marco Antonio Barrera's camp, Bob Arum chose Jorge Solís as Pacquiao's next opponent among several fighters that Arum offered him to fight as a replacement. The bout was held in San Antonio, Texas on April 14, 2007. In the sixth round of the bout, an accidental headbutt occurred, giving Pacquiao a cut under his left eyebrow. The fight ended in the eighth round when Pacquiao knocked Solis down twice; with Solis barely beating the count after the second knockdown, the referee (who was also a doctor) was prompted to stop the fight. The victory raised Pacquiao's win–loss–draw record to 44–3–2, with 34 knockouts.

PACQUIAO VS DE LA HOYA

http://www3.pictures.gi.zimbio.com/Oscar+De+La+Hoya+v+Manny+Pacquiao+5hZqVK8DgaZl.jpg

On December 6, 2008, Pacquiao faced Oscar De La Hoya at the MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada, in a fight called Dream Match. Pacquiao asserted himself over De La Hoya from the first round till the eighth round. De La Hoya's corner threw in the towel before the start of the 9th round. Pacquiao won via technical knockout.

Presented by Golden Boy Promotions and Top Rank, Inc., the bout was scheduled as a 12-round, non-title fight contested at the 147-pound Welterweight limit. Although Pacquiao went into the fight widely recognized as the leading pound-for-pound boxer in the world, some boxing pundits had speculated that 147 pounds could be too far above his natural weight against the larger De La Hoya.Pacquiao received $15 to 30 million (share of the pay-per-view), plus a guaranteed amount. Tickets reportedly sold out just hours after they went on sale. The total gate revenues were said to be nearly $17 million dollars. That amount apparently gave the bout the second largest gate revenue in boxing history

PACQUIAO VS HATTON
http://pacquiaovscottolivestream.info/wp-content/uploads/2009/09/pacquiao-vs-hatton-full-fight-video.jpg

On May 2, 2009, Pacquiao fought Ricky Hatton for the IBO and Ring Magazine Light Welterweight titles (as well as the lineal light welterweight title) at MGM Grand Las Vegas in Las Vegas, Nevada. The fight was originally placed in jeopardy due to disputes with both camps over the fight purse money. Eventually, the money issue was settled and the fight went on as scheduled. HBO aired the contest. Pacquiao started the fight strong, knocking down a sluggish Hatton twice in the first round. At the bell, Hatton seemed to have re-grouped, only to get knocked down for the third time 2:59 into the second round, awarding Pacquiao the win by KO.

PACQUIAO VS COTTO
http://pinayheaven.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/09/pacquiao-vs-cotto.jpg

On November 14, 2009 Pacquiao defeated former WBO welterweight champion Miguel Ángel Cotto of Puerto Rico by TKO in the 12th round, at the MGM Grand Las Vegas to earn his fifth major boxing world title in five different weight classes (but together with his Ring Magazine belts for featherweight and junior welterweight, Pacquiao is widely recognized to have won seven major world titles in seven different weight divisions). Even before Ricky Hatton's fight against Paulie Malignaggi last year, Top Rank promoter Bob Arum stated his desire for Pacquiao to fight Cotto. Pacquiao then gave Arum the go signal to arrange the fight after Cotto won a hard-fought decision against Joshua Clottey at Madison Square Garden in New York City.[43] Meanwhile, current WBA welterweight champion "Sugar" Shane Mosley tried to lure Pacquiao to fight him. Mosley even offered Pacquiao for a fight at junior welterweight (140 pounds), Pacquiao's weight class as of the moment. However, after unsuccessful attempts, Mosley shifted his focus to a fight against WBC welterweight champion Andre Berto.[46]

Among the details that were agreed upon for the Pacquiao–Cotto fight were the weight (both camps agreed to the 145 pound catchweight) and the purse (Pacquiao will get the 65% share of PPV buys, as compared to Cotto's 35% share). In addition, the fight would be for the WBO Welterweight title.

Pacquiao solidly defeated Cotto to become the new WBO welterweight champion, his seventh title in seven weight classes. After winning the first round and arguably the fifth, Cotto appeared to tire progressively while Pacquiao maintained his speed and power, dropping Cotto in the third. At the end of the 11th round, Cotto's own father sought to stop the fight. Cotto and his trainer, however, wanted to continue, and the HBO announcers speculated it was so Cotto could have the honor of finishing. A minute into the 12th round, however, it was clear that Cotto could not throw any more decent punches, prompting the referee to stop things.

In the 12th round of the match, referee Kenny Bayless stopped the match, awarding the match to Pacquiao by TKO due to his nearly uninterrupted domination of Cotto after the first round. With this victory, Pacquiao took the WBO welterweight title, his seventh world championship and became the first boxer in history to win seven world titles in seven different weight divisions.
