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.

Florante at Laura 18: Ang Laki sa Layaw

196. “Anhin konh saysayin ang tinamong tuwa
        Ng kabataan ko’y malawig na lubha
        Pag-ibig ni ama’y siyang naging mula
        Lisanin yaong gubat na payapa.

197. Pag-ibig anaki’y aking nakilala
        Di dapat palakhin ang bata sa saya
        At sa katuwaa’y kapag namihasa
        Kung lumaki’y walang hihinting ginhawa.

198. “Sapagkat ang mundo’y bayan ng hinagpis
        Mamamaya’y sukat tibayan ang dibdib
        Lumaki sa tuwa’y walang pagtitiis
        Anong ilalaban sa dahas ng sakit?

199. “Ang taong magawi sa ligaya’t aliw
        Mahina ang puso’t lubhang maramdamin
        Inaakala pa lamang ang hilahil
        Na daratna’y di na matutuhang bathin.

200. “Para ng halamang lumaki sa tubig
        Daho’y nalalanta munting di madilig
        Ikinaluluoy ang sandaling init
        Gayon din ang puso’y sa tuwa maniig.

201. “Munting kahirapa’y mamalakhing dala
        Dibdib palibhasa’y di gawing magbata
        Ay bago sa mundo’y walang kisapmata
        Ang tao’y mayroong sukat ipagdusa.

202. “Ang laki sa layaw karaniwa’y hubad
        Sa bait at muni’t sa hatol ay salat
        Masaklap na bunga ng maling paglingap
        Habag ng magulang sa irog ng anak.

203. “Sa taguring bunso’t likong pagmamahal
        Ang isinasama ng bata’y nunukal
        Ang iba’y marahil sa kapabayaan
        Ng dapat magturong tamad na magulang.

204. “Ang lahat ng ito’y kay amang talastas
        Kaya nga ang luha ni ina’y hinamak
        At ipinadala ako sa Atenas
        Bulag na isip ko’y nang doon mamulat.
