Life on the Oregon Trail was difficult to all pioneers. It took day’s maybe weeks to get ready for the journey. A family of four would have to have over a thousand of pounds of food to survive the very long journey. To travel this long journey pioneers needed a wagon to travel. They needed a wagon because they would need to carry all of that food. Before starting the trip most pioneers had cholera. A lot of pioneers died having it and some were lucky to get better.
When it was time to travel there would be huge traffic jams. Some pioneers were not trained. This means that they couldn’t control their ox’s. So most of the time the wagon will run into a tree or the ox will take the wagon in the wrong direction. Only a couple of miles into the journey pioneers noticed that they packed to much stuff into their wagon. So they decided to throw stuff along the way. Settlers from the jump off towns picked up the stuff. Most of the stuff was baconflour & iron stoves.
Crossing rivers was one of the most stressful things in the journey. Hundreds died trying to cross some rivers. Those rivers are called the Kansas, North Platte, and Colombia Rivers. Many pioneers walked the 2,000 mile journey. That’s because they overloaded their wagons. In 1850 37 settlers drowned crossing the Green River.
The wagons weren’t 100% safe. It didn’t have no safe features. Therefore if someone fell out the wagon death was instant. A diary quoted “A little boy fell over the front end of the wagon during our journey. In his case, the great wheels rolled over the child’s head----crushing it into pieces. The weather was a problem to. Many pioneers died by lightning strikes, others were injured by hail the size of apples. Cholera killed most of the settlers. Many died in a couple hours…...

...A three-hour epic on the life and struggles of poet and patriot Jose Rizal, the national hero and martyr of the Philippines, this film was commissioned to mark the 1998 centennial of the country's independence from Spanish colonial rule. Rizal was a remarkably educated man; not only was he a writer, but he was also a painter, sculptor, doctor and surgeon, teacher, natural scientist, economist, engineer and theologian. He was an excellent fencer and marksman; he studied at colleges in Europe, America and Asia, traveled to many different nations and could speak twenty-two languages. He was a champion of his country's independence, a Filipino Gandhi who faced the firing squad at the age of thirty-five for inciting rebellion. He was the instigator of the Philippine revolution of 1896-98, the first national uprising against a colonial power in Asia. He also wrote two books, Noli me tangere and El Filibusterismo, which sought to increase his people's political awareness. Director Marilou Diaz-Abaya deliberately avoids a historical lesson. The Rizal of her story Cesar Montano is thinking back on his life and writings from his prison cell in the fortress of Santiago; the characters that appear are a blend of the real people, friends and enemies as well as those he created in his books. The script is solid, with a contribution by Diaz-Abaya's long time collaborator, Ricky Lee; the soft tones of the cinematography helps to create an atmosphere of magic appropriate to the story of a......

Aakalaing nakakapagal ang pelikula --tipong katulad ng walang kaluluwang centennial celebration na isinasagawa ng gobyerno at ng National Centennial Commission (na isa sa mga tumulong upang maisakatuparan ang proyektong ito). Bukod pa sa tumatakbo nang mahigit sa tatlong oras ang pelikula, mahirap umasa ng anumang bago sa isang kuwento na makailang-ulit nang inilahad sa iba't ibang paraan. Ano pa ba'ng tungkol kay Rizal ang hindi nabanggit ng ating mga libro sa kasaysayan? Ano pa ba ang hindi natin napanood sa light and sound show sa Luneta, sa "Dalawang Bayani," o sa "Rizal sa Dapitan. Sa simula pa lamang nito ay mabilis na napapapawalang-totoo ang mga ganitong palagay. Dito na marahil magsisimula ang ating listahan ng mga hindi inaasahan sa pelikula.

...irrigation system, and sculpted. He offered free medicinal check-ups for the locals and even performed a surgery on his mother, blinded by a severe cataract, when she and Jose Rizal’s sisters left from Hong Kong to visit him. He became a local teacher or “maestro” for the young boys, offering free education for the less fortunate. And of course, like any other young man, he fell in love and got married to an Irish-American who came from Hong Kong to Dapitan, Josephine Bracken, who asked for help to cure her blind father. Towards the end of the movie, a fellow doctor and a member of the KKK, Pio Valenzuela, visited him to ask for advice on their planned “revolution”. But since the colony was not yet ready for a revolution, he just advised that the KKK should first stock up on armory and weapon through their rich fellow countrymen and train for battle. By watching the movie, I learned more on the life of our national hero. I was even able to establish the “good and bad” about our beloved Jose Rizal. For the “bad”, I can only think of one thing. During Josephine’s pregnancy, Jose Rizal’s sister, Maria, accused Josephine as a spy sent by the wicked friars to investigate on Jose Rizal. Though his sister is partly true, Josephine truly loved her husband very much and would never give his life away to the friars. But Jose Rizal did not believe his wife at first so he physically, emotionally and mentally tortured and hurt his wife to the point that Josephine collapsed and......

Jose Rizal

...Jose Rizal Directed by: Marilou Diaz-Abaya; GMA FILMS PRODUCTION 19th Century Spain saw her empire crumble away as colonies like Chile, Peru and Cuba rose in arms and achieved their independence. In the Philippines, Spain faced the threat of yet another revolution due to mounting social unrest among the natives. Jose Rizal, at age of 35, was the greatest political enemy of Spain in the Philippines. With his exceptional linguistic ability and interest in the science and arts, Rizal was most effectibe in his campaign for freedom as a writer. His novels Noli Me Tangere and El Filibusterismo were scathing indictments of Spanish tyranny and of the Church which came to acquire immense political power. Ghent, Belgium. 1891 – Rizal “Ang bayan ay may cancer, na panlipunan, na kailangan ibilad sa templo ng sambayanang Pilipino, at sa hangahang ito, sisikapin kong maikintal ang iyong kalagayan ng buong katapatan ng walang itinatanggi. Itataas ko ang lambong na nagtatago sa kalinisan na ipinagpapakasakit ng lahat sa katotohanan. Maging ang pag-ibig sa sarili, sapagkat bilang anak, alos kong ako man ay may sarili ring pagkukulang at katuwaan. Ang aklat ay nagkakaroon ng mga bagay na ngayon lang may magsisiwalat. Napakaselan ng mga ito, kaya’t sinuman ay walang sumalang. Pinagsikapan kong isagawa ang ayaw isagawa ng iba. Sinikap kong sagutin ang mga paghamak na sa loob ng daang taon ay naitambak sa atin at sa ating lupang sinilangan.” Panunuring Pampelikula......

Jose Rizal

...Jose Rizal was born to the wealthy Mercado-Rizal family in Calamba, Laguna, of the Philippines. The Mercado-Rizals were considered one of the most prestigious Filipino families during their time. Jose Rizal came from the 13-member family consisting of his parents, Francisco Mercado II and Teodora Alonso Realonda, and nine sisters and one brother. His parents were leaseholders of a hacienda and an accompanying rice farm by the Dominicans.[11][12] From an early age, Jose Rizal Mercado showed a precocious intellect. He learned the alphabet from his mother at 3, and could read and write at age 5.[12] Upon enrolling at the Ateneo Municipal de Manila, José dropped the last three names that make up his full name, on the advice of his brother, Paciano Rizal, and the Mercado-Rizal family, thus rendering his name as "José Protasio Rizal". Of this, Rizal writes: "My family never paid much attention [to our second surname Rizal], but now I had to use it, thus giving me the appearance of an illegitimate child!"[13] This was to enable him to travel freely and disassociate him from his brother, who had gained notoriety with his earlier links to Gomburza. From early childhood, José and Paciano were already advancing unheard-of political ideas of freedom and individual rights which infuriated the authorities.[note 1][note 2] Despite the name change, José, as "Rizal" soon distinguished himself in poetry writing contests, impressing his professors with his facility with Castilian and other......

Before we tackle Jose Rizal’s life and works, it is important discuss its legal basis and the issues surrounding it for us to understand why we need to study this course and what we must achieve in studying it. Historians agree that every historical actor is a product of his time, therefore it is equally important and beneficial for our study to learn the historical context of Jose Rizal – the social, economic and political milieu of his time in order to contextualize our study of his life and works. Doing away with historical context, might mislead us from a genuine reading and understanding of Jose Rizal’s life and works. In order to achieve this, we will start our study by having a glimpse of the 19th century Philippines or the last century of Spanish colonial regime in the Philippine. LEARNING OUTCOMES The following are the learning outcomes we are expected to achieve at the end of the lesson: Understand the historical background and rationale of the Rizal Law and the Historical context of 19th Century Philippines • Explain the rationale of the Rizal Law • Discuss the historical context of the Rizal......

August 18, 2015 BSP201A Ms. Mari Cris Tan Jose Rizal: Ang Bayaning Third World I’ve known the name Jose Rizal since I was a kid. He was a smart man whose curiosity took him to a lot of opportunities, a famous Filipino writer who wrote a lot of compositions that talked about patriotism and a hero who died for his beloved country. Unfortunately, my knowledge about him is not that much but luckily, the movie we watched did get me to be more familiar with the life and sufferings of our hero. It also tickled my mind to think about how the events were connected to each other. Along with my own curiosity, we were asked to also think about if Rizal deserved to be called a national hero. Rizal came from a rich and well known family that is why he had an opportunity to gain knowledge in the city of Manila as well as other countries. He have been to a lot of places and considered to be a multi lingual person and this became an issue brought to him. People would say that Bonifacio deserves more because he came from an unfortunate family. He is also a pure Filipino in mind and experienced suffering in the hands of the Spaniards. For me, the knowledge Rizal got from his so called “adventures” was not used for his own benefit. This knowledge changed his perspective in life. When you come to think about it, how did the......

...Cinco,Reymond John C. December 8, 2014 CEIT-02-401p Prof. Kathleen Ryan A. Besonia “SEGUNDA KATIGBAK” She was Jose Rizal’s “puppy love” and with her the hero was believed to have had “love at first sight”. Rizal was 16 years old when one Sunday in 1887 he paid visit to his maternal grandmother in Trozo, Manila and there met, among others, Segunda Katigbak, a two-year-younger-than-him ‘colegiala’. In his ‘Memorias de Un Estudiante de Manila’, Rizal graphically described her as a short lady with “eloquent eyes, rosy cheeks, and smile that reveals very beautiful teeth”. Mariano Katigbak, Segunda’s brother and Rizal’s classmate who was also in the house, probably had no idea that his friend had been experiencing “a love at first sight” being bewitched by his alluring sister.   During the 1880s, the Katigbaks of Batangas were known for their successful and very lucrative coffee industry. When Jose met Segunda, she was at the time a boarding student of La Concordia College where Rizal’s sister Olympia was also studying. Jose and Segunda got to know each other more intimately as his visits to his sister Olympia (or rather to his love interest Segunda) in La Concordia surprisingly became more frequent. How could Rizal forget that incident when he was urged by other acquaintances and conformed to make a pencil sketch of Segunda? “From time to time”, he later recorded in his diary, “she looked at me, and I blushed.” When Segunda one day gave him a white artificial rose she......

Jose Rizal

...This was the Filipino movie I have been waiting for, for a long time. Most of the Filipino movies that I've seen are cheap imitations of Hollywood movies with forgettable characters and forgettable plots. But I won't be forgetting "Jose Rizal" anytime soon. With impeccable production values and a truly great performance by the lead actor, Cesar Montano, "Jose Rizal" is the equal of anything that Hollywood can produce (and better than most of the crap that Hollywood routinely puts out on the street). The movie tells the life story of Jose Rizal, the national hero of the Philippines. It covers his life from his childhood to his execution at the hands of the Spanish forces occupying the Philippines in the late 19th century. We are also thrown into the world of Rizal's novels (filmed in black and white), so we get a glimpse of how he viewed Filipino society under the Spanish heal. One note, this movie is not for the faint of heart. There are graphic depictions of violence and even torture. The opening few scenes depict some episodes from Rizal's novels. In one a Catholic priest rapes a Filipina. I guess I now know where the Mestizo (i.e., mixed blood) class came from in the Philippines. In the other scene a Catholic priest beats a child for alleged stealing. Strong stuff, and it made me wonder how the Catholic Church could possibly retain any power in the country, if this is what the national hero thought about it. The movie introduces us to the life of......
