The Literary Forms in Philippine Literature by: Godinez-Ortega The diversity and richness of Philippine literature evolved side by side with the country's history. This can best be appreciated in the context of the country's pre-colonial cultural traditions and the socio-political histories of its colonial and contemporary traditions.
Discussions about crime and safety for expats living in the Philippines seem to generate big, passionate differences of opinion. Some feel that foreigners are prime crime targets. This view is supported by many news reports of foreigners being killed, mostly in home intrusions.
One of the Philippine lit that amazed me when I first came to the Philippines is that houses, even in very peaceful small places, had steel bars on their windows. Where we lived in Upstate New York, such a thing was inconceivable.
Most people there did not lock their houses and left their keys in the ignition of their cars. Surely, something is different. Building windows — security bars How the windows look We built security bars into our window design.
The openings are small enough so that even a child could not get through. We worked to make the bars a positive part of the sash design, so that the bars would give the appearance of window panes. We are happy with the result. The window security bars are 14mm square steel. Each room, as required by our building permit, has a hinged window panel which serves as a fire escape.
These are modelled on designs used in some higher crime areas in the U. We incorporated curly decorative panels so the doors would seem a bit less jail like. The hinges are heavy duty stainless steel.
The doors have both deadbolts and padlocks. They will also be effective against a common Philippine burglary scenario in which a small child is squeezed into the house, perhaps between bars, perhaps with a bar sawn with a hacksaw.
The child then opens the exterior doors to let in his adult accomplices. Portrait of a break-in Above is a photo sent in by a reader whose house was broken into by squeezing in a child who unlocked the door. Fortunately the owners slept through the robbery and were not harmed, however quite a bit was stolen.
The installation of this grille was very weak, depending on plastic expansion anchors, called tox in the Philippines. Our windows are welded to structural reinforcing bar Are our security measures overkill?
Security screen door complete except for insect screening Security door locks from outside Security door locks inside We also have pretty standard security lights; a lamp in each corner of the soffit and lights on our front fence and both front and rear gates.
Our plans called for watt halogen lights in the center of the soffits. We decided to use a pole mounted yard light instead. We bought a Firefly brand watt sodium vapor street light and installed it on a pole in our yard. We decided on this type of light because it gives lots of light per watt and because it can illuminate our entire yard.
Our lot is 1, square meters and except for the lighting we provide, totally dark. After living in the house for three years, we only turn on the big sodium vapor lights when there is some cause for alarm.Economia delle Fonti di Energia e dell'Ambiente/Economics and Policy of Energy and the Environment ISSN: EconLit Coverage: , 47(1) - , .
