 She sent me the article to share the story of her country with this part of the world.


You may take the jeepney away from the Philippines, but you can’t tell that the country is Philippines if you don’t have the jeepneys in.
A big and defining part of Philippine culture, jeepneys rule the roads after the World War II, being recycled from US military jeeps after the war. The military troops who started going back to their country left hundreds of surplus jeeps. The Filipinos in turn, ripped these to accommodate more passengers, and added metal roofs for shade.
What made this simple feat and an avenue of profits and living for many is how these kings of the road bear creativity. All jeepneys, even the ones which are nearly dilapidated, are intricately designed and beautiful, unique to every eye, and boasting of freshness, friendship, and fashion.
These jeepneys also boost inspiration for daily living since they flank quotes and loving and inspiring one-liners or cheesy lines in the sides, in the head of the jeepney, or in its inside. Some drivers take pride of their family and show it nonetheless by putting the names (yes, each and all) of his family members in the walls of the jeepney inside.
Where else can you find a jeepney that calls itself the Hogwart’s Express, or the Parisian Explorer, or the Love-is-not-blind jeepney? It only happens here in the Philippines and every Filipino takes pride for that.
Mostly, the jeepney is revered for being the sign also of Filipino hardwork and struggle. It is the witness of the Filipino’s quest to make a something out of him. It is the jeepney that transports the people to going through their daily lives, but more than that, the jeepney is actually the one that also helps them fulfill their dreams and wishes. It is the one that pushes them to where they study, build careers and relationships, and best of all, to make their country a better place to live in.

AT&T announced March 20,2011 that it is planning  to buy T-Mobile USA from the European company Deutsche Telekom for $39 billion.

Telecommunication Cabling


Telecommunication cabling is a wide topic. Most generally when we talk about telecommunication cabling, we are talking about twisted pair cabling used to carry telephone and other telecommunication signals inside building and in the cabling otn the telephone company outside plant. In some applications some other cable types (twisted pair, coaxial cable, fiber) are used, but twisted pair is the most commonly used cable type.
The customer premises cabling can be divided to the following parts:
  • Campus cabling: Where a site contains more than one building, Campus cable is used to connect and integrate the network within the overall area. EIA/TIA refers to this as Inter-Building Backbone Cable. Backbone Campus Cabling is usually optical fibre based upon 62.5/125um Multimode fibre or single mode fibre. Campus cabling connects the main wiring closets on different buildings.
