Can I bum a stick?




Many issues involving the youth had been driven out. Youth are hooked in all grounds, with the great influence brought by this modernized world. Exposed to pleasure as well as to violence. Likely to be updated in everything that is happening in the society, involved in the different kinds of group (wether it's bad or good), and a lot more. Name it!


What a sad thing to know that teens nowadays are very different. It is hard to believe that the youth is considered endangered species not by means of losing it's kind but by means of losing hope for the future.


A typical example was scene I happend to witness outside our school premises almost everyday. As I went down the way where I waited for a ride, I noticed some teens/students smoking.



Kuya Eric on his new entry said One of the most common problem the Filipino youth is facing today is teenage smoking. Despite the health warnings in cigarette packs, this problem is still common, especially in the urban areas. The Philippine government has done little to totally eradicate this problem.



It's very well aside... I'd bet, he's right!


I wondered what on earth was the use of cigarette- as far as I know, it cost 2 pesos per stick and here's a punch- it can destroy your health.



I searched the internet about the harmful effects of cigarette smoking for teens. For my blog sake! *lol .. And as a care provider... Nursing student kuno eh! Hhehehe



Health Effects of Smoking Among Young People
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Among young people, the short-term health consequences of smoking include respiratory and nonrespiratory effects, addiction to nicotine, and the associated risk of other drug use. Long-term health consequences of youth smoking are reinforced by the fact that most young people who smoke regularly continue to smoke throughout adulthood.1

Cigarette smokers have a lower level of lung function than those persons who have never smoked.1

Smoking reduces the rate of lung growth.1

In adults, cigarette smoking causes heart disease and stroke. Studies have shown that early signs of these diseases can be found in adolescents who smoke.1

Smoking hurts young people's physical fitness in terms of both performance and endurance—even among young people trained in competitive running.1

On average, someone who smokes a pack or more of cigarettes each day lives 7 years less than someone who never smoked.2

The resting heart rates of young adult smokers are two to three beats per minute faster than nonsmokers.1

Smoking at an early age increases the risk of lung cancer. For most smoking-related cancers, the risk rises as the individual continues to smoke.1

Teenage smokers suffer from shortness of breath almost three times as often as teens who don't smoke, and produce phlegm more than twice as often as teens who don't smoke.3

Teenage smokers are more likely to have seen a doctor or other health professionals for an emotional or psychological complaint.3

Teens who smoke are three times more likely than nonsmokers to use alcohol, eight times more likely to use marijuana, and 22 times more likely to use cocaine. Smoking is associated with a host of other risky behaviors, such as fighting and engaging in unprotected sex.1












The leakage issue during the 2006 June Nurses Licensure Exam that causes the delay for the result may have taken the backseat. The wait is over. Finally, the result came out. Our school earned a 14% passing rate. I overheard that it's the second to the lowest [ranked] among nursing schools in the entire Philippines. Bad... Bad... Bad... Only four examiners from the school passed out of 29 who took the exam. Ngayon lang to nangyari. It was June 2004 NLE when our school got a hundred percent passing rate. Why it happened?


One writer said: When we produce graduates that do not fair well during national examinations, we immediately assume either of the two things- the downfall is do because the students do not do their part while studying in the school or the academe isn't apt to produce competent graduates any longer. The question abides, is it possible that the two do not do both their duties? Or at the very least are not given chance to do so? The obligation (and such a strong word) of the students is to learn well, make use the facilities offered by the school and prepare for opportunities after college. The administration on the other hand, has to assume the following responsibilities: teach well, supply and make available necessary facilities to further our education, and prepare us for and render us opportunities while in and after college. So that the success for sure it will be sure swing both ways.
