Z59 news: Microsoft founder Bill Gates reportedly arrived at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) yesterday from Palawan on a private jet. Airport sources said Bill Gates used his full name, William Gates. There were reports that Gates arrived at NAIA’s general aviation area on April 4 and boarded a private plane with registry number NAH7 WN, said to be owned by the Soriano family, and headed for Amanpulo in Palawan. The private jet is still inside the hangar of Asian Aerospace at the NAIA. Officials could not provide more information about Gates’ arrival and departure. A report from InterAksyon.com, the online news portal of TV5, said the billionaire philanthropist visited the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) in Los Baños, Laguna yesterday morning. Neither Microsoft Philippines nor IRRI officials would confirm Gates’ presence in the country. Aviation sector sources, however, confirmed that a private jet tied to Gates was in the country, and had flown into Manila from Puerto Princesa. The plane supposedly arrived in Palawan on Black Saturday. Gates, co-founder of tech giant Microsoft Corp., has been more active in operations of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Sources in University of the Philippines Los Baños, in whose sprawling Makiling campus IRRI is located, said Gates was in IRRI for at least two hours and was likely in consultations on the latest developments in rice research. The Gates Foundation supports anti-poverty programs, technology and innovations worldwide, and in the past had invested as much as $20 million in research for the Golden Rice variety developed in IRRI. The genetically modified crop ostensibly holds out hope for cheaper, easier-to-propagate and fortified rice that can be used to fight hunger and malnutrition in developing countries. Fortified with Vitamins A and B, Golden Rice can help curb child mortality and blindness, researchers have said.

ANG AWIT AT KORIDO ng Florante at Laura

Naging tanyag sa Europa noong Gitnang Panahon ang mga tulang romansa (metrical romance).  Ito’y mga tulang pasalaysay tungkol sa mga pakikipagsapalaran at pakikipag-ibigan ng mga kabalyero, prinsipe at iba pang dugong bughaw.  Lumaganap sa Pilipinas ang mga tulang romansa noong ika-18 siglo, dala ng mga Kastila.  Ang dalawang anyo nito na naging popular na popular ay ang awit at korido.

            May bahagyang pagkakaiba sa sukat, paksa at paraan ng pagbigkas ang awit at korido.  Ang korido ay may walong (8) pantig sa bawat taludtod samantalang ang awit ay may labindalawa(12).  Kapwa tulang pasalaysay ang awit at korido, ngunit ang huli ay may kasamang kababalaghan: ang mga tauhan ay pagsasagawa ng mga bagay na di maisasagawa sa tunay na buhay, tulad ng pagkakaroon ng tagabulag, pagpatag sa bundok sa loob lamang ng magdamag, pagtatanim at pag-aani ng palay sa isang gabi lamang at iba pang katulad nito.


            Samantala, ang mga tauhan sa awit ay makatotohanan at ang kanilang mga pakikipagsapalaran ay maaring maganap sa tunay na buhay.  Kung may kababalaghan man, ito ay mga pangyayaring walang mahirap paniwalaan ngunit maari pa ring maganap sa tunay na buhay.  Halimbawa, maituturing na kababalaghan o mahirap paniwalaan na mapapatay ng batang-bata at walang kasanayang si Florante ang batikang mandirigma at kilabot sa buong daigdig na si Heneral Osmalik.  Ngunit hindi imposibleng mangyari ito sa tunay na buhay.  Pansining ang ganitong mga pakikipagsapalaran ay kailangan upang makalikha ng tauhang may kahanga-hangang lakas at tapang.

            Tungkol naman sa pagbigkas, ang korido ay binibigkas nang mabilis samantalang ang awit ay binibigkas nang banayad at may kabagalan.  Ang totoo, nang panahon ni Balagtas, ang awit ay inaawit ng makata sa mga tanging pagtitipon, tulad ng makikita sa larawan.
