The University Week, 2015

Posted on October 28, 2015

In my recollection, the opening ceremonies of the University Week this year ranks as number one in terms of over-all happiness and joy among the participants.  Somehow you can feel the excitement and the tremendous energy of the students and the faculty who participated.

I have always believed that the vitality of a university can be felt if not measured from how it conducts its many extra-curricular activities such as convocations like their founding anniversaries and sports.  Sports in particular gives a university a great sense of pride foe itself, and greatly enhances the morale of the students and the employees.  That is the reason why the leading universities in the country spend huge sums of money in their sports programs.  I have heard that one leading and prestigious university somewhere in Quezon City spends about PhP75 million for its basketball teams alone which is 3 times the entire budget of the RizalTech for all teams for the entire year.

Cultural activities also give the same effect.  Our Teatro Rizalia, world-class performers themselves, performs in many different cultural presentations sponsored by many agencies and private entities, particularly in the programs of the National Commission for Culture and Arts, often held in the Cultural Center of the Philippines.

There was a year when we celebrated our Foundation Day on April 1.  It was in 1979.  It was held in the Pasig Campus.  The reason for holding it in April was because the date President Ferdinand Marcos signed Presidential Decree 1341-A was on April 1, 1978, but we actually received the copy of the Decree on October 13, 1978.   On the other hand, the law converting the Rizal Technological Colleges into a University lapsed into law on October 11, 1997 (I called up President Emeritus Dr. Jose Q. Macaballug who is right now in the University Games in Bacolod to confirm this date.  Thus, we have been celebrating our foundation anniversary in October).

But there were so few participants and almost no students in the only and the last time we held the foundation day on April 1, so we went back to celebrating it in October.  The question was whether we would hold the Foundation Week before or after the final examinations.  The fear was there would be no more students if we held it after the final exams so for years we persisted in holding it before the final exams.  During the final exams week, the students did not have much time to review and were still giddy with the celebrations.  So, with trepidation, we decided to take a great risk and hold our founding anniversary after the finals exams, and hope and pray that the students would come.  Well they came and played and celebrated with us.  For many years now we have been holding our University Week after the final exams.

This year we have celebrated our 46th founding anniversary.  We are going to have many more celebrations to come.

Keep the Dream Alive, Scientific Equipment Delivered

Posted on October 22, 2015

The scientific equipment I described in previous columns have been delivered.  I invited the faculty members to see and to test the equipment for themselves.  They will undergo a prolonged training for each equipment to fully understand the experiments which may be conducted with each of them.  We have plans to acquire more of these equipment for the new Physics Laboratory of the College of Education.

We will keep the dream of being a great University alive, to be of better service to our students and to the community.  Thank you for your continuing support to the RizalTech!

RizalTech Basketball Players, They Played for Us Part II

Posted on October 21, 2015

This feature could go on and on if I will include the accomplishments of our other athletes in other events who went on to play for the national teams.   Now here’s another one who is currently playing for the NU Bulldogs in the UAAP.

Jef Javillonar

Jeoffrey Javillonar studied in the LHS and was a member of the Philippine Youth Basketball Team.  When he was about to graduate I called him in the Gym to inquire where he would be playing next.  He replied “NU”.

Whenever I watch the UAAP or the NCAA on TV when these former RizalTech players are on court, I immediately notice the brand of RTU game they play.  They play sticky defense and give their men much problems on how to extricate themselves from this kind of defense.  Indeen I have the feeling that most of the RizalTech coaches imbued this defense philosophy to their teams.  Mention the names of Ato Tolentino, Arlene Rodriguez, Beaujing Acot, Luke Dacula, and Johnedel Cardel, and “defense” immediately comes to mind.  Our players carry this defense mindset even when they step into the PBA hardcourt.

Javillonar is another member of the PH Youth team that finished fourth in the FIBA Asia Under-16 Championship three years ago under Altamirano. A 6-3 forward who suited up for Rizal Technological University in high school, he averaged 5.8 ppg and 5.1 rpg in 12 games with the Bulldogs last year.

Eduardo Daquioag

Ed Daquioag is a former member of the RizalTech juniors’ team.  That team was the strongest juniors’ team ever assembled in this University.  Perennially the rivals of the Jose Rizal University and DLSU Greenhills in the Division Meet, this team included Jef Javillonar and many other outstanding players who went on to play in the UAAP, NAASCU, and the NCAA.

I remember Ed to be a jolly player, but very serious when it came to practices.  Now touted to be an MVP candidate in the UAAP, he was an obscure member of the UST team in the beginning.  Now he is rising to prominence.  I hope he can sustain this level of excellence.

Here are some extracts from an informative article I found in http://www.abs-cbnnews.com/sports/09/25/15/ed-daquioag-rising-obscurity-and-adversity:

Ed Daquioag: Rising from obscurity and adversity

Paolo Mariano, ABS-CBN Sports

Posted at 09/25/2015 7:37 PM

Five years ago, almost no one knew who Daquioag was. The reporter couldn’t even pronounce his name properly. But his innocent curiosity is a perfect allegory to Daquioag’s odyssey in the UAAP. From an obscure newcomer, his meteoric rise this Season 78 has made him one of the most recognizable names in the league.

Acot brought Javillonar and Daquioag to Benedictine International School, where he was the head coach. There, they teamed up with the Tigersharks’ top gunner, Clark Bautista. They won titles in various tournaments in the country, including the National Students Basketball Championship in Cebu in 2008. The sweet-shooting Bautista was named MVP, while Daquioag was included in the Mythical Five.

A year later, however, the school’s basketball program was dissolved, putting the players in limbo. Luckily, Acot was hired by Rizal Technological University’s (RTU) juniors team. Again, he brought with him Daquioag and Javillonar, while Bautista joined UST as a college freshman.

While at RTU, Javillonar was named to the RP Youth Team under Eric Altamirano. When he graduated, Altamirano convinced him to move to National University (NU), where he was newly appointed as head coach. It put to waste UST’s investments. In contrast, college teams weren’t exactly tussling to get the unheard-of Daquioag. He tried to follow his longtime teammate by trying out for the Bulldogs but he was shown the door.

“Parang hindi naman nila ako pinapansin nun,” said Daquioag. “Kaya nag-tryout ako sa UST. Walk-in lang ako nun kasi open (tryouts).”

But by then, Acot was no longer part of the Growling Tigers after having a personal spat with Jarencio. Daquioag no longer had a confidant and a backer who could strongly vouch for him. Jarencio knew him, but the mercurial mentor was still unsure about the reed-thin kid that caught his eye in Ilocos Norte. So, as Daquioag learned from his hard-knock upbringing, good ol’ hard work never fails.

RizalTech Basketball Players, THEY PLAYED FOR US, Part I

Jericho Cruz and Robbie Celiz

Posted on October 19, 2015

The RizalTech is one of the leading sports universities in the entire country, producing players for the different national teams in many different sports such as basketball, taekwondo, chess, dance sport, athletics, baseball, softball, sepak takraw, futsal, and volleyball.  Just how good RizalTech players can become can be illustrated by the following article.

Jericho Cruz

One of the best players who ever played for the RizalTech basketball team was Jericho Cruz.

He arrived in our University sometime in 2010 as a raw and very young recruit.  The then coach of the men’s team, Beaujing Acot told me that he came from Guam, or somewhere in the Pacific islands.  It is Saipan, as the entry in the Wikipedia shows.

Jericho was a fearless player who drove to the basket as if there was no tomorrow.  He reminds me of Samboy Lim and Danny Florencio, two of the most exciting players in Philippine basketball history.  Jericho leaped high, and could hang himself on air as he penetrated the defenses towards the basket.  He was a member of the RizalTech team that won the SCUAA NCR Championship in 2011 and went on to Isabela to win the SCUAA National Championship, the las time NCR won that prize.

He could not escape the eyes of recruiters, though.  In the same year, he transferred to the Adamson University.  He is now one of the reliable players in the Rain Or Shine team in the PBA.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jericho Xavier Cruz[1] (born October 11, 1990) is a Filipino basketball player[2] who currently plays for the Rain or Shine Elasto Painters of the Philippine Basketball Association.

High School/College Career[edit]

Cruz started his basketball career in Saipan where he helped the CNMI finish sixth in the 2008 International Basketball Federation-Oceania Youth tournament and in the process was voted as one of the Top 5 players.[citation needed]

He then decided to try his luck in the Philippines where he initially played for Rizal Technological University in 2010, the same year when the Blue Thunder ruled the State Colleges and Universities Athletic Association.[citation needed]

He was also a member of RTU’s two-time runner up squad in the National Capital Region Athletic Association where the Blue Thunder lost to Olivares College and Colegio de Sta. Monica in 2010 and 2011. He was a member of the Mythical Team in 2011.[citation needed]

He was spotted by then Adamson coach Leo Austria while playing in a tournament in Bacolod City. He averaged 10.1 points per game in his first tour of duty with the Falcons in the 2011 FilOil Flying V Preseason tournament then normed 12.3 markers per outing in his rookie year with Adamson in the 2012 UAAP season.[3]

He elected to forgo his final year with the Falcons and applied for the 2014 PBA draft.

Jericho Cruz, Dennis Lee Villamor and Robbie Celiz as members of the RizalTech basketball team

Robbie Celiz

Robbie was member of the possibly the greatest basketball team ever assembled by the RizalTech which beat PUP with 50 points in a SCUAA championship.  At 6’4” he could shoot the ball just about anywhere and had a deadly 3-point shot.  Of course he could rebound and pass the ball as well.

In 2010 he played his last year for the RizalTech.  In the championship game between the RizalTech and Olivarez Collge, Robbie suffered an ankle sprain and could not play well afterwards.  The game was very close with many lead changes.  Coach Beaujing Acot took a gamble and sent the limping Robbie Celiz back on court.  He could not make any difference anymore in the game, which the RizalTech lost.

After playing for Talk and Text Tropang Texters, he was traded to Blackwater Elite.  He is now with the Sta. Lucia Realty in the Philippine Commercial Basketball League, touted to be the rebirth of the old Manila Industrial and Commercial Athletic Association or MICAA.

Postscript:

There are scouts everywhere.  I have seen some of them watching very intently the RizalTech Juniors team in the NAASCU.  This team is taller than the Seniors team.  If not for lack of heft and experience it could give the Seniors’ team a run for their money.

We develop players only to find many of them playing in the NCAA and the UAAP.  Consider Mark Brana and Exeqiel Biteng of Mapua, Philip Paniamogan of JRU, and many more.  I have pasted the box scores in a game in the Millenium Basketball League. You will see familiar names in there.

Even if you have left, always remember that you were raw and young and the RizalTech trained you.  We are proud of you.

The RizalTech Gym Part II

Posted on October 16, 2015

The Gym remains one of the centers of activities for the students and employees of the RizalTech.  As soon as the new maple flooring was installed, the NAASCU requested for its use for the Women’s, Juniors’, and Seniors’ basketball tournaments.  This brought great joy to the RizalTech community, noticeably the girl students who avidly watched the Juniors’ games and rooted for their favorite players from all teams.  I asked the gate attendant to open it wide whenever the RTU teams would be playing (the NAASCU sold tickets).

One game I could not bear to finish was the Women’s basketball championship game between the RizalTech and the Centro Escolar University.  Except for one obscure practice game, we haven’t beaten CEU in all the six or seven years we have met each other in championship after championship in the WNCAA and the NAASCU.  We have gone close, sometimes very close to winning just like year when we led by as much as 20 points in the 2nd quarter only to lose the game by 2 points in the championship of the WNCAA.  This last game was no different.  With the game tied at 34-all, we started committing errors in the last 7 minutes.  When the CEU lead ballooned to 10, I thought it was over.  I quietly left the Gym.

The bidding for the maple replacement took a long time as the Bids and Awards Committee members could not agree among themselves about a minor technical detail, but it took them more than a year before they were finally able to resolve this problem.  The project started on February 28, 2015 and was finally finished sometime in July of the same year, at least as far as the supplier of the maple was concerned.  We had to do a few more renovations before the Gym could be open to competition.

We had to enclose the playing area by blocking all access to the playing court.  Before, the design of the Gym was such that anybody could step down into the playing court even when a game was on-going.  Now we have effectively prevented such practice from recurring.  Thanks to the efforts of Ric Dula and Hermie Adana and their team of hardworking people, such as Angelo Quintana, Utoy Morales, Sotto Resurrecion, and others.

We have a new logo for the Blue Thunders.  It is designed by Dr. Ruby-Ann Dela Cruz.

Last night, the championship games in basketball in the women’s and men’s divisions in the 2015 Intramurals were held in the Gym.  Congratulations to the winners.

The RizalTech Gym Part I

Posted on October 15, 2015

With few exceptions, perhaps none, we have one of the most beautiful gyms in any State University or College in the country.  The Gym is a most important facility in the lives of the people in the Rizal Tech, students and employees alike.  Here we can watch games between competing schools in the NCRAA, NAASCU, WNCAA, and the passionate SCUAA.  Here we saw how the RizalTech teams beat their opponents in basketball and volleyball and even in taekwondo and table tennis.  Here we have seen how the RizalTech sometimes lost to opponents weak or strong.  We went out of the Gym after the games happy or sad, but mostly happy, for our teams are strong and can match up with the best collegiate teams in the country.  In this Gym we held many activities like beauty pageants and the ADFA night during University Weeks.

It was in the Gym when my own Investiture as President was held on December 7, 2011.

The Gym was inaugurated in early 1999 after about 3 years of construction.  Of course there were VIPs invited with a brass band welcoming them.  Most of the officials were excited to welcome the visitors but I just sat relaxed on a chair.  I was wearing a white polo jacket with black pants at the time.

The term of Dr. Jose Macaballug as College President was about to end in a few weeks, so this inauguration should be in May or June of 1999.  There was a marked increase in the visible activities of some officials.  I sensed that they were hoping for something big.

The net of the basketball ring was sealed.  After (or before?) the speeches, the guests tried among themselves who could shoot the first ball through the sealed net.  Surprisingly, it was not the great Olympian Narciso Bernardo, who was then a Councilor of Mandaluyong, who made the first shot, but it was Maria Liza (Jigs) Bueta, the Director of the RTU Sports Development Office at that time.

In my speech I announced that Dr. Macaballug remains the best person to continue serving the RTU as President.  There was a fairly loud applause to this announcement, or perhaps a sigh of relief, as many people thought that I would be aiming for the Presidency at that time because they thought I would capitalize on the very close connection of a first cousin of mine to the President of the Philippines, Joseph Estrada.  But I knew that my time has not yet come.  I was very raw.

The gym deteriorated fast.  Its flooring was made of Tanguile wood and apparently there was no termite cure that was applied prior to installation.  Barely two years after construction the flooring had to be replaced with another kind of wood due to termite infestation, this time with Narra wood parquet.  The gym was not well managed during these times.  Students freely walked in the wooden court and they spit out chewing gums on it.  PE classes were held there regularly.  The athletes could not find a slot to do their practices.  Pretty soon the halogen lights died one by one.

At one time in 2000 I saw all the lights in the Gym fully open, all 11,000 watts of them.  I thought there was an important game going on, only to find out that only a shirtless off-duty security guard was playing.

There was an occasion when I went to school early because my daughter would be joining a field trip of the LHS.  I saw the whole gym fully lighted at 4:00 am! I asked the security guards what was going on as there wer3e people inside.  I peeked and saw a group of men drinking beer right in the middle of the wooden court.  It was explained to me that they were fraternity members who were celebrating their fraternity chapter anniversary!  I was still vice president then, but I asked myself why could they not just do it outside of the RTU?  To make things clear, they were not the fraternity where the Vice President of the Philippines belongs.

SCUAA January 2011

The Narra wood parquet replacement lasted longer but evidence of termite infestation soon became apparent.  When I became President in November 2010 we had to start replacing rotten portions with whatever wood could be found which usually were the wooden jalousies removed from the corridor windows of the Old Building.

We then replaced all the broken window glass panels which were found all over the Gym.  I remember we had to replace about 35 of those window glass panels.

The roof leaked badly.  In the 2008 University Week in the ADFA exhibition game (we called this “All-Star”) we played with a bucket right inside the court near the foul throw line to catch rain water dripping down (we never had a University Week with no rains as long as I can recall). The Gym Manager I designated as soon as I became President, Botsok Duremdes, had all the leaks patched up, but persisted in many places in the Gym.  He also rearranged the seats so that all gaps were filled with seats coming from the two ends of the Gym behind the basketball goals.  We replaced several exhaust fans which were no longer working.

Women’s Volleyball in practice with Past President Dr. Jose Q. Macaballug, February 2011.  This team won the championships in the SCUAA, NCRAA, and WNCAA.

In 2012 we ordered a replacement for the aging basketball backboard system.  A Spalding Bpi 10000 was installed.  The old Fibertech backboard system was put in the Quadrangle.  Pretty soon a chain in this old system broke but no one was hurt luckily.

The comfort rooms were repaired and the shower rooms installed with curtains.  We replaced the old energy-inefficient halogen spotlights with LED lights.  Soon, the Gym became the practice venue of the Petron Superliga Women’s Volleyball team and then when the Asian Inter-Club Volleyball tournament was held in the country in 2014, teams from all over Asia practiced in the Gym.

We also installed a fine sound system which makes the atmosphere in the Gym more suited for competitions.  During time outs or breaks Jomil Perey, our Gym DJ (well, he’s was a real DJ in another life) would play modern dance songs which would rock the young audience.  Jomil knows that when the ADFA is playing he could not play those songs so he put together some old songs of the Beatles and Cat Stevens and Deep Purple.

SCUAA January 2011 RTU vs. TUP

In 2013, Congressman Boyet Gonzales provided funds for the repair of the Gym.  The roof was finally repaired and the leaks stopped.  The gaudy, resort-like design of the Gym was repainted.  The roof insulation which was starting to peel off was replaced.

 

Newly-renovated Gym. Circa 2013.

 The termites became so persistent that we had to replace planks often.  Thus we decided to have the entire flooring of the Gym replaced with USA-made maple system.

1st RizalTech Extension Colloquium

Change Lives

Posted on October 12, 2015

The RizalTech held its very first Extension Colloquium.  Well maybe they could have just called it “Forum” but colloquium sounds just as great,   though it’s a little bit more exotic.

We have been holding regularly research forums.  In the last research forum 67 researches have been presented in their initial form.  But there have not been any extension forums until this one.

In my opening remarks I explained that in order to be a good University we should not be serving ourselves alone but we have to reach out to the community and to change lives.

As we have a mission to give our students a better chance to have a better future for them, so we have to share with the people of the community what we know, to give them, to give them the opportunity to have better lives.  This is why we should give more importance to extension projects, as much as we have given to research.

Examining the titles of the extension projects you can see how they could change lives.  They can provide skills to give people second jobs or better ways to augment their income.

Some titles immediately reveal this purpose. These are by no means the best extension projects.  I give equal importance to all, but it is just to show you how we can change lives with these projects.

 By Arleigh Lozano, Daniel Baylosis, Mel Ceneta, Candido Villanueva: Basic Training on Domestic Refrigeration and Airconditioning.

By Andres Buraga, Ricardo Uy, Gerry Cabrera, and Vengie Copias: Training on Basic Welding: Shielded Metal Arch Welding.

By Ruben Pozas, Elmer Pascual, George Gajero, and Esperanza Olaviano: Workshop on Soldering Techniques.

By Ma. Corazon Laggui and Armie Cudia: Dance for Fitness and Wellness.

I am not going to mention all those excellent titles as there 61 titles presented in the Colloquium.  It would be enough to say that in this aspect, the Rizal Tech is moving fast forward.

Wear-Anything-You-Want Days

Posted on October 8, 2015

This is going to be a long WAY-want period.  From October 12 to November 8, you can wear anything you want.  Well, almost anything.  Male students are still not allowed to wear earrings or to wear skirts and blouses, or to dress like women (this is hard to define).  According to present understanding of the term, this is cross-dressing.  The Wikipedia definition of cross-dressing is as follows: “Cross-dressing is the act of wearing items of clothing and other accouterments commonly associated with the opposite sex within a particular society.

A simpler definition is given by the Oxford Dictionary: “To wear clothing typical of the opposite sex.”

But the girls are to be allowed to wear pants and t-shirts like the boys do (this is not cross-dressing as they say).  You can wear shorts (perhaps not too short, especially the boys).  You can wear sandals and bull caps.

Just be decent and clean-looking.  You should already know what that means.
