The Pros of Entering Grades Online
There are many benefits of using online gradebooks:

Parents can see the grades online, which means (theoretically) that parents will not call teachers constantly wanting to know his/her student’s average.
Teachers can write comments for parents to view.
Accessible from any computer…on campus or off campus, so many find such programs extremely convenient.
Parents usually view their student’s grades and discipline activity online.
In some programs, parents can update their contact information.
Parents can view lesson plans to see what upcoming tests and assignments his/her student has due in the coming days.
Easily organizes grades for teachers to view, and some programs let teachers know if they have forgotten to key in assignments or what “late assignments” are due.
Such programs automatically compute averages.
Grades are accurate as human error is no longer part of the equation, as long as teachers key in the correct grades.
Teachers can key in grades from home.


Baron, mas bagay as Hubert Webb!

Baron Geisler

Baron Geisler

Seryoso kaya ang mega-couple na sina Carlo J. Caparas at Donna Villa sa balak nilang isapelikula ang buhay ni Hubert Webb?  Totoo kayang si Gerald Anderson ang nasa isip nilang gumanap sa papel ni Hubert?

Kung kami ang tatanungin, mas bagay na Hubert Webb si Baron Geisler.  Bakit?  Proven na bilang mahusay na dramatic actor si Baron.  Built-in ang angas niya at hindi na kailangang i-motivate.  Sa physical aspects, masyadong tisoy si Gerald unlike Baron na tempered ang pagka-German mestizo niya na tulad ni Hubert.

Nasa rehab ngayon si Baron to cure his alcohol addiction at dalawang buwan pa ang hihintayin para makapag-umpisang mag-shoot na tamang-tama lang kasi halos ganundin katagal ang pre-production phase ng project.

Kung si Gerald ang kukunin bilang Hubert, dadaan pa sila sa Star Magic  na may reputation as mahirap kausap.

Direk Carlo, Ms. Donna, si Baron na!


“ZsaZsa Zaturnnah…Ze Musikal…Vack With A Vengeance” opened to a full house last Saturday.
To think na marami itong kasabay na palabas!

Maraming latecomers na na-traffic ang hindi nakapasok.  Alam mo naman ang CCP, mahigpit talaga sa oras!

As usual, pinalakpakan nang husto ang performances nina Eula Valdes, Rocky Salumbides, Gabe Mercado, Tuxs Rutaquio, Pinky Amador at pati na ang ensemble actors ng Tanghalang Pilipino.

Medyo na-turn off ang ibang manonood sa tahasang paggamit sa mga personal na isyu nina Nora Aunor, Vilma Santos at Sharon Cuneta para lamang makapagpatawa ng audience.  It was in bad taste, kahit na sabihin pang artistic freedom lang naman ‘yon!  Ganyan ka na ba, Chris Martinez?
Was that intended para magkaroon ng ingay ang rerun ng “Zaturnnah”? Why did Chris Millado allow it?  How utterly disgusting!

Anyway, hanggang March 13 pa ang palabas.  Tawag sa 8323661/8321125 local 1620 at 1621 para sa mga tiket.  That is, kung may mabibili pa kayo.  Ang alam kasi namin ay sold out na lahat ng tiket for all dates!


Isa pang must-see stage event ay ang “Amphitryon”, Dulaang UP’s fourth production in celebration of its 35th anniversary celebration.  Sinulat ni Heinrick von Kleist at isinalin sa Tagalog ni Jerry Respeto at pinamamahalaan ni Jose Estrella, ito ay palabas pa rin sa Wilfrido Ma. Guerrero Theater, 2nd floor, Palma Hall, UP-Diliman, Quezon City.

“Amphitryon” stars Neil Ryan Sese, Lex Marcos, Diana Malahay, Wenah Nagales, George de Jesus, Paolo O’Hara, Lucky de Mesa and Natasha Cabrera.

Hanggang March 6, 2011 ang palabas.

After a night of exceptional happiness transpires between the supposed “husband” and wife, King Amphitryon of Thebes returns victorious from battle, and Jupiter suddenly disappears.

Anthony Castelo

Anthony Castelo

The intermittent rains didn’t dampen the spirits of Anthony Castelo’s admirers, fans, followers, family and friends to drive to Greenhills, San Juan City to watch his concert “Songs of Love & Peace”.  They came in droves, some of them travelling all the way from Nueva Ecija.

ANTHONY CASTELO:  Former leading man to Ms. Vilma Santos, ex-Quezon City councilor, former member of Gentle Rain (with Nonong Pedero, Boy Camara and Rody Picar) of UP-Diliman and the Time Machine, former member of The Young Americans in Los Angeles, California, a US Presidential awardee during President George Bush’s administration, now doing a show after so many years of absence from the music scene!

It was almost concert time and Teatrino (a sister-concert venue of Precy Florentino’s Music Museum) was almost filled to capacity and yet there was a long queue of late arrivals at the gate! Blame it on the slow traffic caused by the heavy downpour!  Yes, attendance-wise, the event already hinted signs of a successful show!

Concert proper.  Overture:  An instrumental medley of Anthony Castelo’s past hits.  At the moment he entered from the left side of the stage singing “Hahanapin Ko”, suavely handsome minus the moustache, I knew he was in his best elements and the audience already assured of a show worth their time, effort and ticket price!

Yes, the unmistakable Anthony Castelo baritone voice which earned for him the title “King of Love Songs”, the verve, the charm, the macho appeal first seen on the big screen via Elwood Perez’ “Pakawalan Mo Ako” are still all there!


No spiels?  Forget it!  What’s more important is that he’s singing! That’s what we’re here for!

On to “Nang Dahil Sa Pag-ibig” followed by Josh Groban’s “The Prayer”.

Then he greeted (and acknowledged the presence of) some important guests. He thanked his relatives from Nueva Ecija who braved the rains just to watch his concert.

This time, he interpreted Spiral Staircase’s “More Today Than Yesterday” with some sexy choreography, wiggling and kicking at times.  Then, the videoke favorite “Kaibigan”.

After singing “Babaeng Hinugot Sa Aking Tadyang” he called in balikbayan singer JayV Valledo who we heard will soon sign up with Viva Records. JayV did well with his own takes of “Spain” (a difficult, tongue-twisting song!) and “Lately”.

Anthony took the stage again with “Wildflower”, ably reaching the high notes, going down the stage and stumbling on jazz singer Art Manuntag and another singer (whose name we couldn’t recall) who both finished the song with him.

At this juncture, Anthony picked a pretty girl from the left side of the audience and introduced her as his daughter Carla!  Anthony is her “Hero”, she sang!  The father proudly announced that the daughter will soon make movies under Viva Films!

It was nostalgia time with Anthony singing “The Times of Your Life”, segueing to a medley of Paul Anka songs:  “Diana”, “Put Your Head on my Shoulder”, “You Are My Destiny” and “Garden of Eden” plus a couple of Elvis Presley hits, this time with more wiggling and shaking and some help in the vocals from Art Manuntag!  Omigosh, his “lady killer” tag comes back to mind!

“Balatkayo” (written by Tito Sotto and Joey de Leon) and “Ibig Kong Ibigin Ka” ended Anthony’s repertoire for the night.  After thanking everyone, he made an exit amidst shouts for “more! more!”.  He appeared again and obliged with “Dakilang Lahi” (which, I recall, he co-wrote with Tito Sotto especially for the Philippine Centennial celebration as commissioned by then President Fidel Ramos and ex-Vice-President Salvador Laurel)!

Congratulations, Anthony Castelo!  With “Songs of Love & Peace”, you proved to everyone that you still have what it takes to be one of the Philippines’ great balladers and a crowd-drawing concert artist!
