MEDIA LAW. FIRST DAY OF CLASSES: PLS SUBMIT AVATAR & PUBLIC PROFILE ELECTRONICALLY #UNIVERSITYOFTHEPHILIPPINES #UPDILIMAN : Use nicknames only, or pseudonyms, or “aliases”, do not use your full names.
Welcome to the new schoolyear!
This is your first assignment and it’s easy, but it’s also a ticket to a seat to the first day of classes and succeeding meetings. Please submit your avatar and public profile electronically before the first meeting or during the first 30 minutes of the first meeting – failing which, you will be excused so you can submit the requirement. PLEASE USE YOUR NICKNAMES ONLY, OR PSEUDONYMS, OR PET NAMES, OR “ALIASES” (hopefully, they are not aliases from a criminal record:) ).
This is a public site and you are advised not to use your full names.
FOR THE FIRST DAY OF CLASSES: In order to have an organized flow of class discussion: Everyone is required to attend the orientation on the first day of classes – even those who have not completed their payment. Experience shows that those who fail to attend the orientation fail to be aware of the requirements and class policies, fail to get their topics for reporting (for 30 points) and end up DISRUPTING THE CLASS with their noisy cellphones, noisy inquiries, and abrupt behavior in trying to get out of the classroom to comply with the requirements. Students who show inability to comprehend words will be asked to drop the class before wreaking more havoc.
Students will always be held responsible for whatever they miss as a consequence of their being late or absent, and are requested not to harangue the handling faculty to be given special treatment by way of a “personalized briefing”, or update, or to get topics. Students who persist in refusing to comprehend words will be asked to drop the class.
The class record and class scorecards of this class are electronic (with one print copy as final backup).
My avatar and public profile are in this site, in the “About” widget. The widgets appear at the foot of the site; the “About” widget is eleventh, scroll down.
ADMINISTRATIVE MATTERS, FIRST DAY OF CLASSES: As stated, the class records are electronic and will be based on scores arising from compliance with the requirements, to be centralized electronically in the department file. For the first day of classes, in the first 30 minutes of class hours, or earlier, pls submit electronically your avatar and public profile by embedding them or linking them in this site, in this post, in the comments section (you may post them earlier, before classes). You may use the computers in the department, or the computers in the classrooms, or the free and public computers in the corridors and lobby, or the free and public computers in the library, or your own devices (the college has a free, public wifi). Those who fail to comply with this requirement up to the first 30 minutes of classes, or when the roll is called, will lose their seat in class, will be requested to leave the room in order to comply with the requirement, and will be marked as absent.
The avatar is your digital public photo. For this class, do not submit an image of a cartoon character or a computer-generated image unless you want to be considered a winged creature in class. Do not submit a microscopic, dot-size photo unless you want a dot score for all the requirements. Pls make your avatar at least the usual 1” x1”. Thank you.
The public profile is the public description of yourself, the profile that you use in your public sites. Use your nicknames only, do not submit your full names in this site.
In your public profile, pls type as heading the designation of the class you are enrolled in (J101, or Ethics, or Media Law, or Grad Sch) — this will make the work of the department easier.
Then, pls include the following information in your “description”:
1.your course;
2.your favorite book or novel of all time (and state why);
3.your favorite film of all time (and state why);
4.your favorite media practitioner of all time (any medium: newspaper, broadcast, multimedia, film, social media, etc), (and state why);
5.your favorite song/ music/ band/ songwriter of all time (and state why);
6.your favorite meal of all time (and state why).
7.”hobbies”, if any (optional).
Those who do not have these will be asked to show or perform their own original composition in class as a description of themselves.
There are several ways of producing your public profile:
1.Thru your own public site (thru free sites such as FB, Twitter, tumblr, wordpress, blogspot, etc)
2.or thru Gravatar (a free app/site),
3.or thru about.com (another free site/app)
(although there is nothing absolutely free in the internet: advertisers buy your info, so just use your nicknames, not your full names.)
If you’re using Gravatar or about.com, the app automatically shows your avatar anywhere you post in the net, and in the comments section of this site, so you won’t have to embed, separately, your photo.
There are two ways of submitting them in the comments section of this post: 1.By embedding, as in-line text; or 2.by linking the url of your own site (pasting the url of your site in the comments section). Simply click the comments box at the end of this post, then type: you may embed your public profile and avatar, or paste the link to your site where your public profile and avatar appear.
If you are a recluse, or have zero presence in the internet, you may get the class email address from the department and email the requirement. You will need to FOLLOW UP the department to submit it to the handling faculty – the disadvantage of this procedure is — as experience shows – this takes more administrative steps; any delay will be counted against the student for failure to follow up efficiently.
A one-pager directory will be routed manually (print) in class where the student will be asked to write their email address and “name of person to contact in case of emergency” and that person’s contact info. This document is confidential and no one is allowed to borrow or to photocopy it.
Those who fail to submit an avatar and public profile will not be allotted an electronic classcard and will not appear in the electronic class record. Those who are not allotted a classcard and do not appear in the class record will be considered a fictitious character. Their grade will be posted and hidden in the battle station, “Death Star”and they will have to retrieve it by stealing the blueprints of said battle station.

  1. Course
    -BA Film
    Favorite book or novel of all time
    -A Visit from the Goon Squad by Jennifer Eagan. There’s a chapter in the book where the story is brilliantly told through a Powerpoint presentation. And whenever I’ve run out of books to read, I’ll always find myself re-reading it.
    Favorite film of all time
    -The Cabin in the Woods by Joss Whedon! I found the film really fun to watch and it referenced almost every horror film in existence!!!!!!! It’s every horror film fan’s/nerd’s wet dream.
    Your favorite media practitioner of all time
    -My favorite media practitioner probably would be Marilou Diaz-Abaya. I really loved her film Moral, where she tackled the issues of women in contemporary times. And she did it in the 80s! The issues and struggles shown in the film are still experienced by women today.
    Favorite song/music/band/songwriter of all time
    -Neutral Milk Hotel! A friend suggested them to me one time when I was looking for bands to listen to. And they’ve written an entire album all about Anne Frank!
    Favorite meal of all time-I really really love Kare-Kare! It reminds me of my childhood and family get-togethers.7. Hobbies-Drawing, watching films, reading comics!

    FAVORITE BOOK: The Giver. I read this book when I was in a science highschool and the fictitious world it made me imagine was a world that made me critical and analytical of the real world around me. As much as I love the Harry Potter series, The Giver would always have an impact on my sensibilities.

    FAVORITE FILM: Mababangong Bangungot. Kidlat Tahimik enlightened me through his art what our professors would vaguely always tell us: that one does not need the most advanced technologies to be able to produce a film that can affect its viewers phenomenally. One only needs heart and determination in telling a story.

    FAVORITE MEDIA PRACTITIONER: Ricky Lee. Before I became his student, Trip to Quiapo was able to teach me how to turn my experiences into words. When I became his student, he taught me to just never stop writing despite insecurities. It has been a difficult writing journey but he convinced me that I can.

    FAVORITE SONG/MUSIC/BAND: Sara Bareilles and her whole discography. Her songwriting and musicality just strikes a chord in my soul for some reason and I can listen to her songs forever and never get tired.

    FAVORITE MEAL: Menudo with Rice. My mother makes the best menudo and someday I want to be able to make a meal

    HOBBIES: Watching films and television series and documentaries, reading, writing, sketching.

    1. BS materials engineering
    2. Bible, because it’s my daily manual to life.
    3. Tangled; It’s my go-to / feel-good movie.
    4. Hay Nako Red. He’s a social media practitioner and he’s pretty funny.
    5. My favorite song right now is Satisfied, an OST in the play, Alexander Hamilton. I love the play but I love the song the most since it’s nice to listen to.
    6. I like sleeping and eating… I also dance. 🙂

    Bible. It is my daily manual for life.
    Tangled. It is my feel-good movie and my go-to movie. Something about discovering dreams relax me.
    Hay Nako Red. He’s a social media practitioner and he’s pretty funny. He’s also one of my best friends. (thus the bias)
    My favorite song right now is from the OST album of the play, Alexander Hamilton. The title is Satisfied, and I love it because the song is really nice to listen to. Its got raps and lots of /birits/ but isn’t like Filipino song which also has a lot of those.
    I love /Lengua/ or cow tongue. Its one of the dishes I grew up with as a child and I absolutely love its taste.
    I love sleeping a lot, and also eating. I also dance.

    My favorite book is The Notebook. I love it because the way the author wrote it and the story tear right through my heart.
    My favorite movie is A walk to Remember. Same reason as why I loved The Notebook.
    My favorite media practitioner is Jessica Soho because she tries to be unbias on what she reports and is down-to-earth.
    My favorite song is Cecilia and the Satellite because it relaxes me and it reminds me of wanting to be an astronaut when i was a child.
    My favorite meal is spicy sinigang because one, i love spicy foods and two i love how my dad cooks it.
