For the tie-breaker, we've found the words of the<br />national anthem, which should be a great way to<br />describe the Philippines, don’t you think? <img src="wink.gif" border="0"> Thanks to Doc, who did a great job. <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

Official Lyrics

Bayang magiliw<br />Perlas ng Silanganan<br />Alab ng pusoSa dibdib mo'y buhay.<br />Lupang hinirang,Duyan ka ng magiting,<br />Sa manlulupigDi ka pasisiil.Sa dagat at bundokSa simoy at sa langit mong bughaw;<br />May dilag and tulaAt awit sa paglayang minamahal.Ang kislap ng watawat mo'y<br />Tagumpay na nagniningning,Ang bituin at araw niyaKailan pa ma'y di magdidilim.<br />Lupa ng araw, ng luwalhati't pagsinta,Buhay at langit sa piling mo;<br />Aming ligaya na pag may mang-aapiAng mamatay ng dahil sa iyo.

English Translation

Land of the morning<br />Child of the sun returning<br />With fervor burning<br />Thee do our souls adore.Land dear and holy,<br />Cradle of noble heroes,Ne'er shall invadersTrample thy sacred shores.<br />Ever within thy skies and through thy cloudsAnd o'er thy hills and seas;<br />Do we behold thy radiance, feel the throbOf glorious liberty.<br />Thy banner dear to all heartsIts sun and stars are bright,<br />Oh, never shall its shining fieldsBe dimmed by tyrants might.<br />Beautiful land of love, oh land of light,In thine embrace 'tis rapture to lie;<br />But it is glory ever when thou art wrongedFor us thy sons to suffer and die.

In

an<br />attachment that will follow (cos it's too big) you can<br />hear Tine perform this song with a western influence<br />for the melody and some improved lyrics. Enjoy!

tie break answer from ivy league:

<br />TIEBREAKER QUESTION <br />Marian Choir of Cavite<br />The MARIAN CHOIR then known as the Legion of Mary Choir was organized in 1983 through the benign efforts of Rev. Fr. Jojie Sayoc and Ms. Tricia Jacinto. As the group's membership multiplied, they decided to adopt its present name in 1985. The Marian Choir was named Asia's Premier Church Choir after a research conducted by the students at the University of Asia and the Pacific based on the achievements of the various church choirs in the Philippines and in Asia.

As the group's membership multiplied, they decided to adopt its present name in 1985<br />The choir reached the apex of their achievements when PATRICK FRIAS y SORIANO took over in 1993. Mr. Frias transformed the choir into a group of singers that could rival the best choirs in Europe. Attesting to their musical growth is the wide selection of their current repertoire ranging from French, Italian, German and English Madrigals from the renaissance, baroque, classical, romantic and modern periods, religious and secular music, Negro spirituals, inspirational songs, national and international folksongs and foreign and local popular music. The group specializes in acappella music, (sung without accompaniment, i.e., chorus without instrumental support.)<br />The Marian Choir was named Asia's Premier Church Choir after a research conducted by the students at the University of Asia and the Pacific based on the achievements of the various church choirs in the Philippines and in Asia.<br />CAVITE: Best of the Islands Philippines

Cavite occupies land area of 142,706 hectares which is approximately 2.74% of the regional land area and 0.42% of the total land area of the Philippines. The land area of the province is classified as follows: 5.9% (7,833 hectares) public forests; 90.07% (119,280 hectares) alienable and disposable; and 4.02% (5,320) unclassified forest land. It has three distinct physiological features: the lowlands, rolling undulating transition lands, and the rugged uplands of the Dos Picos mountains. <br />Cavite province lies at the southwest entrance of Manila Bay across the Bataan Peninsula, extending eastward along the shoreline up to the historic Zapote Bridge and the inland terrain in the south, to the municipality of Carmona. It is bounded on the east by the provinces of Rizal and Laguna, on the south by the province of Batangas, on the west by the South China Sea, and on the north by Manila Bay and the city of Manila. <br />Brief History<br />Cavite got its name comes from a Filipino world "Kawit" (which means "Hook.") owing<br />to the hook-shaped land on the Old Spanish map. The land was formerly known as "Tangway" where Spanish authorities contructed a fort from which the city of Cavite rose. Archeological evidence in coastal areas shows prehistorical settlements. According to local folklore, the earliest settlers of Cavite came from Borneo. In the 1600s, encomiendas or Spanish Royal land grants were given in Cavite and Marsgondon. Jesuit priests brought in settlers from Mollucas. These settlers, known as "Mardicas," settled in Ternate and Maragondon

Other settlements grew and by the turn of the century, Cavite towns were already trading with one another. Traditional industries began to thrive as Manila's commerce grew. In 1872, Filipinos launched its revolt againts Spain. Three Filipino priests--Jose Burgos, Mariano Gomez,and Jacinto Zamora--were implicated in the Cavite mutiny when 200 Filipinos staged a rebellion within Spanish garrisons. In 28 August 1896, when the revolution against Spain broke out, Cavite became a became a bloody theater of war. Led by Emilio Aguinaldo, Caviteños made lightning raids on Spanish headquarters, and soon liberated the entire province. Aguinaldo commanded the Revolution to its successful end:the proclamation of the first Republic in Asia, the Republic of the Philippines, on 12 June 1898 in Kawit.<br />Cavite proudly stands as a place with a glorious past. Its warm and friendly people, whose ancestors came down with a noble cause, manifest industry and patience in various skills and professions, openly receptive to the entry and exchange of culture and technology that are of value to the province.<br />Political Subdivision<br />The province of Cavite has three cities and 20 municipalities.

tiebreak question: research something about my<br />province cavite the more detailed answer gets the<br />breaker.

For tiebreak:BRIEF HISTORY<br />Long before the arrival of the Spaniards to Cavite<br />City - then known as "Tangway" a peninsula, Chinese<br />traders or "Sanglay" had already been doing business<br />with its people. During the early Spanish time, it was<br />known as "Ciudad de Oro" until the year 1614, when the<br />Spaniards fortified the place with "Muralla" (high<br />thick walls) and surrounded it with moats, the place<br />was called "Puerto de Cavite".

Cognizant of the strategic position of the place, it<br />was officially made the Capital of the Province, Other<br />historians differ in their versions of the origin of<br />Cavite. One group avers that the name came from the<br />Tagalog word "Kabit-e" which in English means<br />"attached", "joined" or "connected". Another group<br />claims it came from the word "Kalawit" or "Hook"<br />because the land is shaped like a hook. Still another<br />version run thus:

"When the Spaniards occupied Manila in 1571,<br />occupation forces were sent southward to a place<br />called "Kawit-eh". Because of the lack of "K" and "W"<br />in the Spanish Alphabet, the colonizers substituted<br />the letters "C" and "V" for "K and W". Henceforth, the<br />place was called "CAVITE".

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

<br />During the Spanish Administration the place was under<br />an "Administradores Civiles" or "Governadorcillo".<br />Later on it was called "Capitan Municipal" assisted by<br />a "Tiniente Mayor", a "Tiniente Segundo", a "Tiniente<br />Tercero", a "Tiniente del Barrio" and the "Cabeza de<br />Barangay".

In 1898, when the Americans came, the place was used<br />as the seat of the U.S. Naval Forces in the<br />Philippines. Government Administration was under the<br />Presidentes Municipales" with the direct supervision<br />of the American Army Officers (the first being Colonel<br />Meade). The first Filipino "Presidentes Municipales"<br />were appointed: Don Zacaria Fortich for Puerto de<br />Cavite, Don Francisco Basa for San Roque, and Don Jose<br />Raqueño Bautista for Caridad.

<br />The Philippine Commission, in May 1903, united the<br />three pueblos (Cavite Puerto, San Roque and Caridad)<br />to create the Municipality of Cavite. By virtue of a<br />legislative act of the First Philippine Assembly,<br />Cavite was made capital of the province. Subsequently,<br />the territory was enlarged to include the district of<br />San Antonio.

<br />In 1909, Executive Order No.124, of Governor-General<br />W. Cameron Forbes, declared Act No.1748 annexing<br />Corregidor and the Islands of Caballo (Fort Hughes),<br />La Monja, El Fraile (Fort Drum), Sta. Amalia, Carabao<br />(Fort Frank) and Limbones, as well as all waters and<br />detached rocks surrounding them, to the Municipality<br />of Cavite.

<br />Under the Philippine Commonwealth, the Municipality of<br />Cavite was converted into a chartered city by the<br />virtue of Commonwealth Act No. 547 approved on<br />September 7, 1940. In 1941, Japanese Imperial Forces<br />bombed the city to destroy the U.S. Naval<br />Installations. Again, in 1945, the U.S. Forces<br />bombarded the Japanese forces stationed herein.<br />Republic Act No. 981, passed by Congress in 1945,<br />transferred the capital of the Province from Cavite<br />City to Trece Martirez City. Subsequently, the City<br />Charter was amended to provide for elected city<br />officials.

<br />GEOGRAPHY

<br />Cavite lies at the southwest entrance of Manila Bay.<br />It is across the Bataan Peninsula. It extends eastward<br />along the shoreline up to Zapote Bridge , the inland<br />terrain in the south, and to the municipality of<br />Carmona. On the east are Rizal and Laguna. On the<br />south is Batangas. On the west is the South China Sea<br />while on the north is Manila Bay near the city of<br />Manila.

<br />Cavite has a land area of 142,706 hectares,<br />approximately 2.74% of the regional land area and<br />0.42% of Philippine's total land area. The land area<br />of Cavite as follows:

Last but not least "Cavite is the homeland of the<br />world famous Jacs, proud TOP member and silver<br />medalist in the Weakest Link competition."

set 2 -

note: to add some bit of variety. i have taken this clipping from a filipino newspaper (online or not). fill out the blanks for each game:<br /><br />Ready for the longest film in Philippine history? <br />

<br />The first thing you can say about Lav Diaz’s 1.________ is that it is five hours long.

This fact makes the film unique among all Filipino films; it also makes Diaz’s work difficult to screen – at 2.________ minutes, the film can only be shown 3._________ a day, with thus less income earned per day.

"We should use specialized marketing, "Diaz notes. "This isn’t a mass-market commercial film. It needs a different kind of selling strategy."

Asked if people will actually go and watch his film, Diaz says, "I believe the Filipino audience can and will make the effort to try. We shouldn’t be making films that talk down to the Filipino audience; we should make films that speak to their potential brilliance. Maybe they have to struggle to understand, to develop the ability to appreciate the film – that’s good. Nothing worthwhile is possible without some struggle. The point is to do a good film and let the people watch it, without condescension, without compromise."

At five hours, Batang West Side is easily the longest Filipino film ever made (its nearest contender, 4.__________ is three-and-a-half hours long while Jose Rizal is a mere 5._________ hours long). Other Asian films that might be considered longer, is Masaki Kobayashi’s nine-hour 6.________, an epic drama set during World War II, is actually three three-hour films released separately.

Jacs...I have a proposal. I hope Pea and Doc will agree.

Since you are very busy, and this is still a game for fun: I suggest you postpone the final to the weekend. You can post your questions for example on friday and give us time 'till sunday or so.

The reason why I ask you that, is that Marri has 3 midterms now, and I have projects to make that are very important. What means that we won't have the time to solve the questions or at least not much.

Pea, Doc is this ok for you two? I hope you understand it..we can't leave our schoolwork for a game. We really want to play the final on full strenght <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0">

Tx for the understanding,

Marri and K

These account records would<br />> have proved Estrada <br />> amassed 3.3 billion pesos from corruption. The 11<br />> senators who voted to <br />> suppress the bank documents did so more for personal<br />> and political reasons <br />> than because of a real belief or proof of innocence.<br />> Without the chance of <br />> using that evidence, the prosecution team resigned<br />> to go on with the charges <br />> and the trial was suspended.
