History (from Greek ἱστορία - historia, meaning "inquiry, knowledge acquired by investigation") is the study of the past, specifically how it relates to humans. It is an umbrella term that relates to past events as well as the discovery, collection, organization, and presentation of information about these events. The term includes cosmic, geologic, and organic history, but is often generically implied to mean human history. Scholars who write about history are called historians. Events occurring prior to written record are considered prehistory.
History is the study of the human past as it is described in the written documents left by human beings. Here are a collection of more history definitions.—Kris Hirst
History Definition
History is a narration of the events which have happened among mankind, including an account of the rise and fall of nations, as well as of other great changes which have affected the political and social condition of the human race.—John J. Anderson. 1876. A Manual of General History.
A usually chronological record of events, as of the life or development of a people or institution, often including an explanation of or commentary on those events: a history of the Vikings.
b. A formal written account of related natural phenomena: a history of volcanoes.
c. A record of a patient's medical background.
d. An established record or pattern of behavior: an inmate with a history of substance abuse.

An interesting past: a house with history.
Something that belongs to the past: Their troubles are history now.

With its balanced mix of urbanity, natural beauty and history it is considered as the most accessible vacation getaway and refuge for those seeking a quiet life far from the bustling Manila metropolis. Cavite is a coastal province situated approximately 9 miles (30 kilometers) south of Manila. It is composed of 20 municipalities and 3 key cities – Trece Martires City (provincial capital), Tagaytay City and Cavite City. The geography of the province varies differently, from flat and coastal in the north and west, to mountainous and hilly in the south and east. Its close proximity to the capital makes it highly urbanized especially in the low-lying municipalities of Bacoor, Imus, Dasmarinas, Kawit, Cavite City, and General Trias where various industries thrive. But in the towns south of the province, agriculture is still the main livelihood and boasts a great amount of preserved forests and wildlife.......

...innocence, several ordeals were carried out by the suspects. Whoever refused, or whoever is in the worst shape after the performing the tasks shall be deemed guilty. 1.6 EDUCATION, SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY Even before the colonizers came, early Filipinos already had their own system of writing. Baybayin is an ancient pre-colonial Philippine writing system. It is a member of the Brahmic family of India and is recorded as being in use in the 16th century. They wrote on barks of trees, leaves, and bamboo tubes using their knives and daggers as pens and colored saps as ink. Early chroniclers, who came during the first Spanish expeditions to the islands, noted the proficiency of some of the natives, especially the chieftain and local kings, in Sanskrit, Old Javanese, Old Malay, and several other languages. They utilized irrigation ditches to increase productivity in the field of agriculture. The prime example of this is the world-famous Banaue Rice Terraces. 2. ISLAMIC In the 14th century, Arab traders from Malay and Borneo introduced Islam into the southern islands and extended their influence as far north as Luzon. Islam was brought to the Philippines by traders and proselytizers from the Indonesian islands. By the 16th century, Islam was recognized in the Sulu archipelago and spread from there to Mindanao. It had reached the Manila area by 1565. 3.4 RELIGION Islam is a monotheistic religion articulated by the Qur'an, a book considered by its adherents to be......

The Best of Philippine History

...economic emancipation, political independence and cultural renaissance.” Ako ay sumasang-ayon sa sinabing ito ni Prof. Renato Constantino. “History repeats itself.” Palagi na lamang natin itong naririnig sa tuwing nauulit ang mga pangyayari sa nakaraan. Bakit nga ba? Noong una ay itong katagang ‘to rin ang unang pumapasok sa aking isipan kapag may nangyayari nga na katulad ng ganoon. Ngunit ngayon, marami nang nagbago. Sa pagiging estudyante pa lamang ng isang Sir Eman Nolasco ay marami ka na talagang matututunan. Aking napagtantong hindi basta-basta ang mga katagang aking nabanggit. Makabuluhan pala iyon ngunit may mali. Sa una pa lamang ay may mali na talaga. Hindi man lamang natin inisip na tayo mismong mga taong naninirahan sa mundong ito ang siyang nagtutulak upang maulit ang mga nangyari noong nakaraang panahon. Hindi natin naisip o napansin man lamang na ganoon pala iyon dahil nasa iba ang atensyon natin. Kung minsan nga ay sa gobyerno o kung hindi naman ay sa muno na mismo natin isinisisi ang mga nagyayari sa ating bansa ngayon. Isa ito sa aking mga natutunan at napansin sa gitna ng aming talakayan tungkol sa kasaysayan ng Pilipinas o kaya pwede na rin nating sabihin na ito ang pinakapaborito ko sa lahat.

History of Philippine Cooperative

...History of Philippine Cooperative Based on available sources, notably the Cooperative Development Authority, tracing the history of Philippine cooperative movement would not be complete without mentioning the name of Dr. Jose P. Rizal who, in his travels to Europe in the latter part of the 19th century, was impressed with the success of a new economic movement which transformed the economic and social life of the Europeans. After his side trip to Sandakan, Borneo in 1892, Rizal requested Governor General Despujol to allow him to move with some relatives and friends to that place and establish therein a colony under the cooperative production and marketing plan of Robert Owen, who is acknowledged as the father of world cooperation. Instead, he was arrested for treason and banished to Dapitan, Zamboanga del Norte. In Dapitan, Rizal had his ideas in cooperation partially fulfilled. He put up a school for the poor community on a purely cooperative basis. He also established a cooperative store with the help of his pupils. One noteworthy group organized by Rizal was the La Sociedad de los Abacaleros (Society of Abaca Producers). This functioned for only one year. Rizal returned the members share capital without any loss. Another name worthy to mention is Teodoro Sandiko, who in his travels in Europe, must have had a close contact with the cooperative movement in Germany where he came across with the Raiffeisen movement. He was very much impressed by this type of cooperative and...

... finances services and social security (Philippine Statistics Authority, 2015). Industry sectors contributes 31.2% of the total GPD (Central Intelligence Agency, 2014), which contains manufacturing, construction, mining and production, and power production (Advameg, Inc, 2015). The leftover of 11.3% of the total GDP came from Agriculture (Central Intelligence Agency, 2014). Many years ago, Agriculture was once the main contributor to Philippines’s GDP. However in the last ten years there is an increase in other industries like production for apparels, ship building, electronics and semiconductors.  Primary exports of Philippines are mainly conductors and electronic merchandise, transportation tools, garments, copper merchandise, crude oil merchandise, coconut oil, and fruits. Having major importers like China (23%), Japan (13%), United States (12%), Hong Kong (9.8%), and Singapore (5.4%), Philippines can potentially benefit from them by having almost the same GDP growth if these countries that Philippines exports significantly to are holding strong GDP growth as well (Alexander Simoes, 2015). Over the years, the rise in number of Filipinos working overseas have significantly boasted their country GDP growth (BANYAN, 2010). The Philippines was recently being seen as a newly industrialised country and rank at number 40 in terms of the largest economy within the world and is among one of the rising markets within the world (PHILIPPINES CENTER FOR BPO, 2014).

...Philippines Ask any Filipino how many islands there are in the Philippines and you will invariably receive the answer in the form of another question, “High tide or low tide? The most common figure given is 7,107 during low tide and 7,100 during high tide, but nobody knows where these numbers come from. The official figure from the Department of Tourism is 7,107 islands. Known as the “Pearl of the Orient Sea” and the “Green Necklace of the Pacific” for the natural beauty of its string of islands sprawled like a necklace of gems against the backdrop of the vast blue Pacific Ocean, the Philippines was named Islas Filipinas (Philippine Islands) by Ruy Lopez de Villalobos when he claimed the group of islands for Spain in 1543. The name is in honor of Prince Phillip, who would later become Prince Philip II of Spain. The Republic of the Philippines (Fig.1) is an archipelago of more than 7,000 islands located southeast of mainland Asia and positioned along the Ring of Fire on the southwestern edge of the Pacific Ocean. Different bodies of water surround the country - South China Sea to the west, Sulu Sea to the Southwest, Celebes Sea to the south, and the Philippine Sea and Pacific Ocean to the east. The country is separated from Taiwan on the north by the Luzon Strait and from Malaysia on the southwest, by the Balabac Strait., The country’s overall land area is slightly larger than the size of Arizona. Although the country consists of thousands of islands,......

...Introduction to the Philippines Separated from its Southeast Asian neighbours by the West Philippine Sea, the Philippines has always been a little different. As the only Asian nation colonized by the Spanish, this lush archipelago of dazzling beaches, year-round sun and warm, turquoise waters remains predominantly Roman Catholic, and culturally – a blend of Islamic, Malay, Spanish and American influences – it ofen feels light years away from the mainland, with a string of elegant colonial towns that have more in common with Latin America than the rest of Asia. It’s an enticing mix: all over the archipelago you’ll discover tantalizing food, friendly people and exurberant festivals. And the variety is astonishing: you can surf, islang-hop or dive pristine coral reefs in the morning and in the same day visit mysitical tribal villages, ancient rice terraces and jungle-smothered peaks. Indeed, the Philippines is often underrated and misunderstood by travelers and its Asian neighbours, casually, dismissed as a supplier of maids, tribute bands, mail-order brides and corrupt politicians, epitomized by the gaudy excesses of Imelda Marcos. Don’t be a put off: while poverty and corruption remain serious problems, the Philippines is far more complex –and culturally rich –than the stereotypes suggest. The Filipino people are variously descended from early Malay settlers, Muslim Sufis from the Middle East, Spanish conquistadors and friars, and later Chinese traders. It’s an old cliché, but...
