0 Technologians judge VP Aspirants in ABS-CBN's Harapan

Responding to ABS-CBN’s invitation to represent the local youth sector, seventeen Technologians took part in the ABS-CBN Harapan: The Vice-Presidential Debate last Sunday, March 21, at 10 PM.

The debate, held in Manila, was attended by six vice-presidential aspirants, namely, Sen. Loren Legarda, Sen. Mar Roxas, Makati City Mayor Jejomar Binay, former Metropolitan Manila Development Authority Chairman Bayani Fernando, broadcaster Jay Sonza, and Atty. Perfecto Yasay, Jr. The CIT group was part of the 45-person live audience in Cebu, with Naga City and Davao City as other key simulcast points in the country.

Mark Anthony Razonable
, a BSECE-3 student, felt happy to join the event. He said, "It made me realize that now is the time to do something for the betterment of our beloved country." He was also privileged to express his sentiments and opinion through the wireless audience response system (WARS), a technology used during the event where members of the audience would press a button to indicate whether they agreed or disagreed with a candidate’s statement. Aside from the credibility and competence of the candidate, how the candidate responded to the questions and issues raised during the debate also became strong criteria on his assessment of the candidate.

CIT-SSG President Alan Angelo Llevares, who led the CIT participants, believes that the event further enlightened Technologians in identifying the most capable and worthy candidate. Their participation demonstrated Technologians' civic-mindedness and active concern with events seriously affecting the nation.

The invitation, sent through the CIT-SSG, was open to all Technologians. Also among the audience were students of University of San Jose-Recoletos (USJR) and University of the Philippines Visayas – Cebu College (UPVCC), local businessmen and persons with disabilities (PWDs).

2 Free wifi service by your CIT-SSG

The CIT-SSG is now offering wifi service to all the Technologians, students and faculty for FREE. This is made possible by the efforts of the current officers in order to address the concerns of Technologians who want to access the internet for free inside the school.

This original plan was lobbied by CIT-SSG Secretary General Kevin Ray N. Chua to provide an internet connection for the CIT-SSG Office for its operations, online updates in Facebook, Twitter and etc. The plan was later revised in order to extend the scope to all the Technologians, with the help of CIT-SSG President Billy Jee V. Belenson. The plan was only approved now because of the tedious process on drafting the guidelines, estimating the costs and etc. This will be the start of assessing whether it would be practical for the school to be a free wifi zone.

Thanks a lot to SPS-MIS Head Engr. Bernard Villamor for supporting the CIT-SSG's endeavor, to Technical Support Group Head Rolando Tindoy for his guidance and to the CIT President Gregorio Escario for approving the proposal.

The CIT-SSG will be paying for the expenses of the wifi connection.

Here are some important points to note strictly:
  • No playing of online games.
  • Don't make unnecessary noises.
  • Don't turn on their speakers, instead bring headphones.
  • No using of receptacle outlets in the CIT-SSG Office for charging your laptops.
  • No opening of pornographic and violent sites.
You can get a registration form at the CIT-SSG Office starting March 1, 2010 (Monday) to avail of the free wifi service. Please bring the following to accomplish the registration form:
  1. 1 (ONE) 2x2 Colored Photo
  2. 1 Clear Photocopy of your school ID
  3. And yourself also
A maximum of 20 wifi users will be allowed, 10 in the bulletin board outside the CIT-SSG Office and 10 inside the CIT-SSG Office. We'll still looking on to the possibility of extending the number of users because the wifi signal can cover around 50M radius, which can even reach the study area near the CIT Library and even in the premises of the CIT Main Bldg from 1st Floor to 4th Floor.

Here's the schedule of the time to wifi service in order to avoid congestion, each with different passwords:
  • 7-9 AM
  • 12 NN - 2 PM
  • 5-8 PM

0 Voters Education Caravan in CIT successfully conducted

Just this morning in the CIT Auditorium spearheaded by the CIT-SSG and COMELEC together with Smartmatic and in cooperation with PoliticalArena.Com, a Voters Education Caravan was held in order to educate the students of CIT on the automated elections in 2010.

Hosted by CIT-SSG officers Ronnell Padillo and Jay Ann Clamohoy, the event was graced by Technologians who were curious on how they will be voting. Most of them are first-time voters.

CIT-SSG President Billy Jee V. Belenson delivered his opening remarks to the audience and cited the importance of the event.

CIT-SSG Secretary-General Kevin Ray Chua spoke about why the youth vote matters in the upcoming elections. He stressed about the importance of the role that the youth will be crucial in making a good choice in 2010. He also elaborated on what's at stake for the youth if they don't participate.

Racquel Cagurangan, General Manager of PoliticalArena.Com discussed about the role of the new media in the elections. She also did a survey among the students wherein most of them were found out to be spending more time on Facebook than on Friendster.

Maan Tolentino was talking about the statistics on the new media being used by the youth. It can be observed that these tools can be utilized by the youth in order to make a change in their own simple way. She also promoted IbaNaNgayon.Ph and BagongBotante.Ph as the COMELEC's arm on informing the people online.

Alex Villacrucis, Election Officer of Borbon, Cebu was the one who did the demo of the PCOS machine. The demo machine that was used in CIT was brand new and CIT was the first to use the demo machine for Cebu. He also explained the election and voting guidelines to the students.

Blogger Azrael Coladilla was also in the there to cover the event and he was able to record the videos below. Check it out!
