A story of creation from luzon?

The Creation Story from Luzon

When the world first began there was no land, but only the sea and the sky, and between them was a kite (a bird something like a hawk). One day the bird which had nowhere to light grew tired of flying about, so she stirred up the sea until it threw its waters against the sky. The sky, in order to restrain the sea, showered upon it many islands until it could no longer rise, but ran back and forth. Then the sky ordered the kite to light on one of the islands to build her nest, and to leave the sea and the sky in peace.

Now at this time the land breeze and the sea breeze were married, and they had a child which was a bamboo. One day when this bamboo was floating about on the water, it struck the feet of the kite which was on the beach. The bird, angry that anything should strike it, pecked at the bamboo, and out of one section came a man and from the other a woman.

Then the earthquake called on all the birds and fish to see what should be done with these two, and it was decided that they should marry. Many children were born to the couple, and from them came all the different races of people.

After a while the parents grew very tired of having so many idle and useless children around, and they wished to be rid of them, but they knew of no place to send them to. Time went on and the children became so numerous that the parents enjoyed no peace. One day, in desperation, the father seized a stick and began beating them on all sides.

This so frightened the children that they fled in different directions, seeking hidden rooms in the house -- some concealed themselves in the walls, some ran outside, while others hid in the fireplace, and several fled to the sea.

Now it happened that those who went into the hidden rooms of the house later became the chiefs of the islands; and those who concealed themselves in the walls became slaves. Those who ran outside were free men; and those who hid in the fireplace became Negroes; while those who fled to the sea were gone many years, and when their children came back they were the white people.

In a nutshell...

The Ifugao tribes of northern Luzon believed that the world was created by the Sun God during a cosmic war between the sky world and the underworld.

What is the Reproductive Health Bill in the Philippines?

There are 6 bills pertaining to reproductive health and/or population management that have been filed for deliberation in both the House of Representatives and the Senate for the 15th Congress.

The most controversial of these bills is House Bill No. 96 authored by Rep. Edcel Lagman. House Bill No. 96, also known as the proposed "Reproductive Health and Population and Development Act of 2010," will cover the following areas:

  • midwives of skilled attendance
  • emergency obstetric care
  • access to family planning
  • maternal death review
  • family planning supplies as essential medicines
  • benefits for serious and life-threatening reproductive health conditions
  • mobile health care service
  • mandatory age-appropriate reproductive health and sexuality education
  • responsibility of local family planning office and certificate of compliance
  • capability building of barangay health workers
  • ideal family size
  • employers' responsibilities
  • multi-media campaign
  • implementing mechanisms
  • reporting requirements
  • prohibited acts
  • penalties

The bill is controversial, as it is being opposed by concerned citizens, especially the pro-life, pro-family and pro-God groups, regardless of creed or religion. The Roman Catholic Church expresses its opposition against the bill on many counts, most especially the procurement and distribution of family planning supplies for the whole country, when the available evidence from peer reviewed medical journals supports the hypothesis that when ovulation and fertilization occur in women taking oral contraceptives (OCs) or using intrauterine devices (IUD), post-fertilization effects are operative on occasion to prevent clinically recognized pregnancy. Hormonal contraceptives and/or IUDs directly affect the endometrium. These effects have been presumed to render the endometrium relatively inhospitable to implantation or to the maintenance of the preembryo or embryo prior to clinically recognized pregnancy. These make pills and IUDS abortifacient.

Pro-life groups, and many professionals in the medical and nursing fields, believe that physicians and policy makers should understand and respect the beliefs of patients who consider human life to be present and valuable from the moment of fertilization. Patients should be made fully aware of this information so that they can consent to or refuse the use of artificial contraceptives.

However, the position of the Catholic Church and the pro-life groups does not mean that they espouse the attitude of "natalism" at all costs, as if the "number" of children, in itself, were the unmistakable sign of authentic christian matrimonial life.

The sexual act, properly exercised within marriage only, is ordained primarily to the propagation of life. If there are reasonable motives for spacing births, such as serious medical conditions in the mother, or extreme poverty, then the Catholic Church teaches that married couples may take advantage of the natural cycles of the reproductive system and use their marriage precisely those times that are infertile (natural family planning).

Other aspects of the bill being contested by concerned citizens include the classification of family planning supplies as essential medicines when their safety/toxicity profile and legal permissibility are questionable. At the same time, more importance should be given to the prevalent diseases, the top ten leading causes of morbidity and mortality in the Philippines, namely, infections such as pneumonia and tuberculosis. Financial resources allotted by foreign donors to assist the Philippine government programs could actually be better spent towards pursuing health programs targeting communicable diseases than purchasing artificial contraceptives.

Very pertinent to the debate about reproduction rights is the right to life. The Philippine Constitution says that the State "shall equally protect the life of the mother and the life of the unborn from conception. If artificial contraceptives are medically proven to induce abortion as one of their mechanisms of action, then procurement and distribution of such family planning supplies are unconstitutional and illegal.

Ten leading causes of maternal death?

1. Other Complications related to pregnancy

occurring in the course of labor, delivery

and puerperium

2. Hypertension complicating pregnancy,

childbirth and puerperium

3. Postpartum hemorrhage

4. Pregnancy with abortive outcome

5. Hemorrhage related to pregnancy

The biomedical causes of maternal mortality are well recognised Three quarters of maternal mortalities result from the direct obstetric complications of haemorrhage, infection, obstructed labour, hypertensive disorders of pregnancy, and septic abortion. The remainder are due to other 'direct' obstetric causes such as pulmonary embolism or ectopic pregnancy, or 'indirect' causes that are aggravated by pregnancy, such as malaria, hepatitis, diabetes mellitus and heart disease. Worldwide the most common cause of maternal mortality is haemorrhage, but the proportion due to each cause varies between regions.

Sorry I don't have 1-10...but I am guessing you can find them out through the information I just gave you.

What kind of hospital was Cranston General Hospital in Cranston RI?

Cranston General was a general practice hospital providing all levels of care. Their claim to fame was that they practiced homeopathic medicine... Less pharmaceutical and more natural... I guess that's why they don't exist anymore...

My mom had stomach surgery there back in the mid 70's and it was an old hospital then. I know they added on a new clinic area and outpatient area in the early 80's... But apparently, couldn't manage the finances and went away in '93....

It wasn't of the calibre of even Roger Williams or Kent County hospitals, which back at that time were nothing to rave about...
