THE COMPUTER AND THE INTERNET

Here are some of the best things to learn and see on a computer.

MICROSOFT OFFICE. Microsoft office is where you create every document. Application Letters, Resume, Bio-Data, and other plain text documents through Microsoft Word; Housekeeping (Budgeting), Charts and Diagrams, and other worksheets through Microsoft Excel; Slide Presentation, Picture Slideshows with captions, and other simple flash documents through Microsoft Powerpoint; Invitation cards, Birthday greeting cards, Get well soon cards, Business Flyers, Publications, Simple Product Catalog, Labels and other interesting graphic documents through Microsoft Publisher. These software comes free with every purchase of a complete set of computer. A basic tutorial course regarding these services will be enough for you to start loving its advantage. Microsoft Office doesn’t only serve office workers, teachers and students. It could also be a great help to business establishments and to housewives and househusbands.

WINDOWS MOVIEMAKER. Moviemaker is also a free software packaged with any windows Operating System. It is a software wherein you can create your own movie through your collection of photos. You can add captions and an audio background to make your video more exciting. You can also edit your personal video collections here and add titles and credits. Try exploring this software and you will really find it very interesting to learn and share with your classmates, friends and relatives.

THROUGH THE INTERNET

YAHOOMAIL AND GMAIL. This is a free internet mailing service wherein you can communicate with your friends, and relatives through the internet. You can send them messages, and when they are online, they could respond immediately. You could also attach documents for up to 25MB in size.

GOOGLE Search Engine. Everybody loves Google. You know why? You just type in any word in the search box and all the indexed websites that talk about it will be listed. It is up to you to choose what is best for what you need. This is very much helpful to students who are having research works. For example, you type in “SCIENCE” in the box and hundreds of results will be listed. You search for a certain country and everything about the country appears even the map because Google has Google Maps. Another interesting thing about Google Maps is that you could view it via Satellite image or just the Normal View as seen in outlined drawings.

WEB SITES

WORDPRESS. This is a content management system which could be used by more computer oriented persons. You could build your own free website here and manage it easily with less programming skills. You are good in writing? Why not build your own website and publish your articles online for everyone to read? You are not the only person who is looking for readers. Millions of people log in the internet just to read anything. The best thing about this is, they read and leave comments. Positive and negative comments to help you improve and do better. If you can not build your own website or blog, find someone you know who can do it. Students who graduated and are still studying at the XiJEN College of Mountain Province could be reliable regarding these kinds of problems. Or better, enroll a tutorial service and enjoy what you learn with the least possible money you could spend (spend less for a lifetime skill you could ever possess).

FLICKR. This is best for persons whose interest goes with pictures or photography. You could upload your photo collections here, add a caption and let everyone to view and leave a comment or you could keep it for yourself to view. You could also group your pictures like an album in a more organized manner in order for you and your viewers to navigate easily from one picture to another when needed.

FOR FREE

WIKIPEDIA. The online free encyclopedia that covers accurate and up to date data. It also contains a collection of related links which will navigate you to the best web pages that suits your needs as a researcher.

FREE BOOKS. Wow! The internet also serves free books. If you are a book lover, you should enter this site and search for every wonderful book you want to read for free. You could read it on the computer or you could download its soft copy (as PDF) and print it if you want to read it on paper.

WORLD ATLAS. This is a website wherein you could download Continent Maps, Ocean Maps, and Countries of the World Maps for free.

So you see? The computer and the internet have lots of other services to enjoy. These are just some of those. We should not limit our knowledge about what we know and hear about the proper usage of these devices. Let us invite ourselves and use our spare time and discover lots of helpful materials we could find from it and share it to everyone. Computer gaming is not a crime, let it then be minimized in order for our children to concentrate on the best things a computer could give them in order for them to be more competitive in the computer industry and be a helpful Filipino citizen they could become.

Temporary Fix by: Veronica Ballestrini

Lyrics

Your blue sweatshirts still laying on my floor
Can’t pick it up, don’t wanna go there no more
I kick it in the corner hoping it’ll disappear
Your memory is still all around here
Tear down those sticky notes and throw them away
Even the one that says “I’ll love you always”
11: 11 will never come true,
I try so hard but all I do is think of you…
And I said

Oh darling, why are you lying to me
Think back to the way things used to be
Don’t know how you could do something like this
Traded in forever for a temporary fix

I guess you needed this more then you needed me
Forgave you twice, oh so desperately
It tore me up knowing that I led it slide,
I kept it all bottled up inside
You said you felt something when I held your hand
Wasn’t that a sign I don’t understand
You don’t know how bad I wanted us to last
It’s sad how love can turn to hate so fast

And I said
Oh darling, why are you lying to me
Think back to the way things used to be
I can only forgive so many times
And that thought will never leave my mind
And I said, oh darling
The nights I spent crying for you
You shined so bright but I watched the dark come through
Tell me how could you do something like this
Traded in forever for a temporary fix

You went west, and things went south,
You gave me every reason to doubt
And once it’s shattered it can never be like knew,
I’m sorry, I can’t be with you…

Oh Ryan, why are you lying to me
Think back to the way things used to be
I can only forgive so many times
And that thought will never leave my mind
Oh Ryan, the nights I spent crying for you
You shined so bright but I watched the dark come through
Tell me how could you do something like this,
You traded in forever for a temporary fix

Nobody’s Home by: Avril Lavigne

I couldn’t tell you why she felt that way,
She felt it everyday.
And I couldn’t help her,
I just watched her make the same mistakes again.

What’s wrong, what’s wrong now?
Too many, too many problems.
Don’t know where she belongs, where she belongs.
She wants to go home, but nobody’s home.
It’s where she lies, broken inside.
With no place to go, no place to go to dry her eyes.
Broken inside.

Open your eyes and look outside, find the reasons why.
You’ve been rejected, and now you can’t find what you left behind.
Be strong, be strong now.
Too many, too many problems.
Don’t know where she belongs, where she belongs.
She wants to go home, but nobody’s home.
It’s where she lies, broken inside.
With no place to go, no place to go to dry her eyes.
Broken inside.

Her feelings she hides.
Her dreams she can’t find.
She’s losing her mind.
She’s fallen behind.
She can’t find her place.
She’s losing her faith.
She’s fallen from grace.
She’s all over the place.
Yeah,oh

She wants to go home, but nobody’s home.
It’s where she lies, broken inside.
With no place to go, no place to go to dry her eyes.
Broken inside.

She’s lost inside, lost inside…oh oh yeah
She’s lost inside, lost inside…oh oh yeah

The Love We Make by: Rodney Atkins

The Love We Make lyrics

I’m not the man you see in all those movies
Or read about in all those fashion magazines
I won’t build you monuments
Or fill your purse with rubies
Baby that’s not me

But I will hold you while you’re sleeping
And I will be there when you wake
And we can fill up the whole world
With all the love we make

I may never be a man of great position
Never be a new aged sensitive guy
But I will hear you every time you whisper
I’ll feel it when you cry

And I will hold you while you’re sleeping
And I will be there when you wake
And we can fill the seven seas
With all the love we make

Till the last day of forever
I know we’ll be joined together
And I will stand by you
I’ll be loving you

And I will hold you while you’re sleeping
And I will be there when you wake
And we can fill up the whole world
With all the love we make
All the love we make baby
All the love we make

LYRICS

He said: “Just think it over, and write me a list,
“So we can figure out what we both deserve.”
She hardly could believe it, that their love had come to this:
Dividing an’ deciding his and hers.
But she grabbed a paper napkin, an’ asked the waitress for a pen.
An’ one by one, she wrote down what she wanted most from him.

“Honesty, sincerity, tenderness and trust.
“A little less time for the rest of the world,
“And more for the two of us.
“Kisses each mornin’, ‘I love you’s’ at night,
“Just like it used to be.
“The way life was when you were in love with me.”

She reached across the table an’ placed it in his hand,
An’ said: “You know this isn’t easy for me.”
As he thought about the new car, the house an’ the land,
An’ wondered what that bottom line would be.
An’ a thousand other things that she’d want him to leave behind,
But he never dreamed he’d open up that napkin and find:

“Honesty, sincerity, tenderness and trust.
“A little less time for the rest of the world,
“And more for the two of us.
“Kisses each mornin’, ‘I love you’s’ at night,
“Just like it used to be.
“The way life was when you were in love with me.”

Well, he fought back the tears, as he looked in her eyes,
An’ said: “I don’t know where to start.”
An’ she said: “Everything on that list in your hand,
“Is hidden somewhere in your heart.

“Honesty, sincerity, just like it used to be.
“The way life was when you were in love with me.”
