Academic Year 2014-2015

THE UNIVERSITY OF THE PHILIPPINES The University of the Philippines has eight constituent universities -UP Diliman (with an extension program in Pampanga), UP Baguio, UP Los Baños, UP Manila (with Schools of Health Sciences in Baler, Palo and Koronadal), UP Visayas (with campuses in Iloilo/Miagao and Tacloban), UP Cebu, UP Mindanao, and the Open University. The Diliman campus is the University’s flagship campus and offers the largest number of degree programs. Other campuses are known for specific areas of specialization. For example, UP Manila is the country’s Center of Excellence in the health sciences; UP Los Baños is a distinguished center of academic excellence in agriculture, forestry and related sciences in Asia; UP Visayas is noted for its program in fisheries which is recognized as one of the best in Asia; UP Baguio is noted for its Cordillera Studies program; and the UP Open University provides educational opportunities beyond the boundaries of a conventional university (i.e., through distance learning). As the premier State University, UP offers a wide range of degree programs. Some degree programs are offered in only one campus (e.g., BS Nursing, BA Filipino) while others are offered in two or more campuses (e.g., B Fine Arts, BS Statistics). Most of these require qualification through the UP College Admission Test (UPCAT). To maintain its high standard of education and to maximize its limited resources, UP has had to limit slots for freshman admission to each campus and to its various degree programs. Some programs are in much greater demand than others so that their freshman slots are often more quickly filled. Other programs may not be as much in demand so that their…...

...This is a brief compilation on the DISTRICT FOCUS FOR RURAL DEVELOPMENT.It contains information gathered from various sources and quoted direct. District Development Committees were created in 1983 through the District Focus for Rural Development (DFRD) as a way to decentralize mobilization of resources, provision of public services and planning. The policy did however fail but the DDCs remained and continue to lead development planning and implementation at the district level. Decentralization policy: Adopted in 1982, the decentralization policy is implemented in Kenya through the District Focus for Rural Development (DFRD). The District Commissioners (DCs) are responsible for implementing all government development programs and handling the related funding from the district to the grassroots level. The Development Committees, set up at the district, division and location levels, not only implement programs identified by the Government but also spearhead similar programs and recommend them to the Government for financial and technical support. The District Focus for Rural Development (DFRD), adopted in 1983, was an attempt to coordinate development activities and service delivery at the district level. The DFRD has been until recently the key system for the planning, implementation and management of development activities. However, it has been argued that, “the DFRD was a mere dispersal of Central Government control outside the national capital without......

...the festival. To sum it up, people did not equally attend to certain attractions. Coming to the second question how people behaved during performances it can be said that they mostly seemed very relaxed and happy. Some were afraid of missing something and jumped around in order to catch a better view, but most of the people just enjoyed what they saw. To give an example, there was a small comedy show for children, where people stood around. Even tough the performance was meant for children, the parents showed their self supportive and laughed and clapped hands etc. No one actually could be indentified who seemed disappointed or sad. It occurred that visitors seemed a bit lost due to the mass of options they had to chose for. Anyway, the general picture showed happy and relaxed people. Coming to the impression at a certain point of the festival, the situation can be taken where many people stood together in one room forming a circle. In the middle of the circle a young boy group performed a dance with some comedy. Usually people show become motivated through the performance since it was very entertaining and funny. However, people seemed shy and unsure what to do. They first had to wait some minutes in order to see the performance. Within this minutes no one really talked with each other. During the performance the acting group missed some enthusiastic people and clapping hands. In the end people showed a small appreciation in form of applause but that was it. In order to......

Information and Communication Technologies in Tourism 2014

...Rodolfo Baggio Marianna Sigala Alessandro Inversini Juho Pesonen Editors Information and Communication Technologies in Tourism 2014 eProceedings of the ENTER 2014 PhD Workshop in Dublin, Ireland. January 21, 2014 Preface The advent of Information and communication technology (ICT) has had a paramount impact on tourism. The effects of this revolution continue to change the nature of contemporary tourism on a day-to-day base. The globalization of information, open innovation, better access, collaboration in a generation of information and technological convergence, have all contributed to the design of a new scientific paradigm. Thanks to our passion for research and to the continuous advancements in the technological ecosystem as well as the possibility of better understanding human activity and behavior we are on the threshold of a new era of the social science of tourism. This new social and technological paradigm affects tourism and human mobility in a way that gives the research process unheard-of possibilities. The current level of technological development allows for the construction of objects that are smaller, more intelligent and embedded in the environment and even wearable. These objects, which record and learn our habits are connected to the Internet and they have computing capabilities. They can also be interconnected and generate large quantities of information to benefit the environment in which they are located as well as the travellers that......

...College Admission Test (UPCAT) is just around the corner and you are surfing the Net, joining forums about THE test and looking for “special tips” for taking the examination, aren’t you? I see you. I cannot help but remember how chill I was on my exam day.  It was not really because I was so confident that I knew everything the premier state university expected me to know. I think it was more because I did not even think I would make the cut. I did not get to attend any review class nor did I buy all the best and recommended UPCAT reviewers. As many UPCAT passers will tell you, it is not really about how much you have studied the summer before for the entrance exams but how much you have learned in school since Day 1. “UPCAT is not a day but a season. It started the day you realized you needed to work hard for your high school grades so it could help you ace the test. UPCAT … started when you began to hope to be an Iskolar ng Bayan,” says broadcast communication graduate Joseph Cataan. All you need for UPCAT are refreshers because, as they say, “you already know what you know.” I was also calm and cool about the whole thing because I was never pressured by my parents. On UPCAT day, my dad said, “Just do what you have to do.” And so I did. People will tell you that getting into UP is not the be-all and end-all but it pays to be assured that you did your part, from pre- to post-exam. Survival tips Here are a few tips from successful survivors of the UPCAT to get you on......

...General guide to referencing 2014 edition From the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Learning and Quality) Many students find learning the unfamiliar nature of academic writing a challenging experience. The puzzling art of referencing is no exception, with its traditions and initially obscure formatting rules, referencing can seem to be an overwhelming and annoying requirement standing between you and submitting your assignment by the due date. This guide has been written especially for you, new and returning Federation University Australia (FedUni) students, to demystify referencing and provide numerous practical examples of when and how referencing should be used in your writing at FedUni. As you study, you’ll come to understand that referencing is just a set of rules that you need to follow to adequately acknowledge the work and thinking of others in your assignments. These rules are important because they allow your teachers to decide whether you’ve demonstrated that you understand the topic at hand and show that you have completed the assignment yourself. If you ignore the requirements to reference source materials in your assignment, your teacher may decide you have committed ‘plagiarism’. This means you have failed to reference according to the rules and in doing so, not demonstrated that you have used the work of others in your work. Plagiarism is a very serious matter that can result in unpleasant consequences for your studies and career. So please take the time to......

General Motors Case Analysis 2014

... I. General Overview General Motors, also known as (GM), is an American multinational corporation headquartered in Detroit, Michigan. General Motors was founded on September 16th, 1908 in Flint Michigan by William C. Durant as a holding company, or a wholly owned subsidiary for Buick. The company designs, manufactures, and distributes vehicles on all six major continents under 18 brand names. Some of their well-known brand names include Chevrolet, Buick, Cadillac, GMC, Opel, Vauxhall, Wuling, Baojun, and JieFang. GM also operated the brand names of Saturn, Pontiac, and Hummer until 2009. During this time, GM was emerging from chapter 11 bankruptcy as a result of the 2008 financial crisis, and decided to shed those brands for strategic reasons in order to compete with foreign emerging vehicle distributers in the market. In January 1912, the company decided to incorporate themselves under the GM brand name, and were the gold standard in the automobile industry for almost 80 years. From 1931-2007, GM successfully led global sales amongst every car manufacturer in the auto-manufacturing industry. Currently, the automobile industry is one of the most fierce industries in the market. Not only is GM competing with American car manufacturers such as Ford and Dodge, but also foreign companies such as Toyota, Honda, and Hyundai. II.

Assessing Information Technology General Control Risk: an Instructional Case

...ISSUES IN ACCOUNTING EDUCATION Vol. 24, No. 1 February 2009 pp. 63–76 Assessing Information Technology General Control Risk: An Instructional Case Carolyn Strand Norman, Mark D. Payne, and Valaria P. Vendrzyk ABSTRACT: Information Technology General Controls (ITGCs), a fundamental category of internal controls, provide an overall foundation for reliance on any information produced by a system. Since the relation between ITGCs and the information produced by an organization’s various application programs is indirect, understanding how ITGCs interact and affect an auditor’s risk assessment is often challenging for students. This case helps students assess overall ITGC risk within an organization’s information systems. Students identify specific strengths and weaknesses within five ITGC areas, provide a risk assessment for each area, and then evaluate an organization’s overall level of ITGC risk within the context of an integrated audit. Keywords: internal controls; general control; ITGC; risk assessment. INTRODUCTION he Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX 2002) and the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB) Auditing Standard No. 5 (PCAOB 2007) require that the organization’s chief executive officer (CEO) and chief financial officer (CFO) include an assessment of the operating effectiveness of their internal control structure over financial reporting when issuing the annual report. External auditors must review management’s internal control assessment as part of an annual integrated......

...along with two Republicans. Thus, each one of them offers their response to the city’s disputes as well as policy’s to ensure its development. Considering that the voter turnout in mayoral elections has gradually reduced in a couple of the last years. It is vital to connect as Houstonians that have a vested significance not only in the city’s educational growth but its opinionated life as well (Garza, 2014). Among the candidates, they comprise Chris Bell, who is a Democrat, Bill King a Republican as well as Ben Hall a Democrat. Chris Bell used to be a lawyer, council associate as well as a Congress man. He also ran a sturdy campaign, against Rick Perry in a bid for the position of a Governor. He acknowledges problems like the need for better learning institutions, enhanced roads as well as superior financial plan. What formulates Bell’s apparition for the city a truly thrilling one is the manner in which he incorporates inventive technology as the basis of his reaction to those issues. Bell calls for more proficient techniques of fitting the roads and distributing information with the entire Houstonians. He advocates for the significance of a strong community transit scheme. Bill King operated as an administration associate in a law firm that embodies the local administration, where he learned how units like the City of Houston controls its finances. He addresses the dismal state of the city’s finances and provides procedures that could be used to correct the predicaments......

...The fascinating world of applications Viewing the video of HP Device TouchPad we realize how touch technology is changing the world. Last week in our last meeting we talked about Apple as an example of a company of innovation, globalization and number one in its sector. My introduction is based on my own personal experience with the number one device in Touch applications. Arround three months ago my girlfriend bought me a 16GB iPad. The reality, especially the numbers mantein that electronic tablet devices are exceeding expectations from every point of view: only in its first trading day in the United States, Apple had sold arround 300,000 units and nearly one million applications had been downloaded. Apple's virtual store had about 250,000 e-books downloaded from the iBookstore. So if anyone had any doubts about the potential of this device, we can say that was wrong. This does not mean that everyone is 100% agree with iPad or there is no criticism of some of its features, but while we will discuss this issue, we can not deny that in the consumer market, its presence is more than striking. In terms of functionality, you can view photos, maps and videos, read newspapers, magazines and books, sail on the web, view emails, listen music, play and download hundreds of applications. Not being able to use multiple applications at the same time or without the chance to use Flash Format makes iPad less efficient. After its first public appearance in our society there was a......
