Evelio Bellaflor Javier was a young governor of the province of Antique in the Philippines and an opponent of the dictatorship of President Ferdinand Marcos. His assassination on February 11, 1986 was one of the causes of the People Power Revolution that overthrew Marcos. Evelio Javier's brother, Exequiel Javier, served as congressman from 1987 to 1998 and from 2001 to 2010 and governor from 1998 to 2001, 2010 to 2015. Evelio Javier was born on October 31, 1942, in Barangay Lanag, Antique, to Everardo Autajay Javier, a prosecutor and Feliza Bellaflor, a teacher, he finished grade school in San Jose Elementary School in San Jose and graduated high school with first honors and college in Ateneo de Manila University. There, he received his Bachelor of Arts degree in History and Government and he earned his Bachelor of Laws at Ateneo Law School in 1968, he passed the bar examination in 1968 before he became a college professor at the Ateneo, a successful lawyer and entered into politics. He was a member of the law school's Fraternal Order of Utopia.
He married Precious Bello Lotilla, daughter of Vicente Lotilla and Angelina Bello of Sibalom, Antique in Manila on December 29, 1968. They had Francis Gideon Everardo and David Ignatius. Javier ran for governor of Antique and won in 1971 by one of the largest margins in history, making him, at the age of 28, the Philippines' youngest governor, he did not run again for election in 1980. Instead he attended the JFK School of Government at Harvard University in 1981 on a scholarship, where he earned a Masters in Public Administration. In 1984, he ran for Assemblyman in the Batasang Pambansa, lost. Five years after his death, he was declared the winner by the Philippine Supreme Court. Evelio Javier ran for office during the 1984 Elections but he lost. Evelio Javier was known to be a crowd favorite wherein he won the hearts of the people of his province. Arturo Pacificador, a member of the Kilusang Bagong Lipunan Party, was his competition, known to have a lot of powerful people who support him; the heat of the competition between the two climaxed during the eve of the elections on May 13, 1984.
Supporters of Evelio Javier were found dead and it was suspected that the attack came from Pacificador's men. During the time of the elections, it was known that there were a lot of methods to compromise the voting results such as vote-buying and giving threats to voters; this did not only happened on the national level of elections but on the local elections. In the province of Antique, ballots of those who voted in the towns of Caluya, Tibiao, Laua-an, of San Remigio were not placed in the boxes. After the counting of the ballots, Arturo Pacificador won as the assemblyman for Antique, but Javier asked to rebuke the decision of the commission due to suspicions of compromising the results of the elections. At 10:00 in the morning of February 11, 1986, three or four masked gunmen riding in a Nissan Patrol jeep went to the New Capitol building in San Jose, Antique. While Evelio Javier was talking to his friends on the steps in front of the capitol building, the masked gunmen opened fire. Time magazine described the scene:Evelio Javier, director of Corazon Aquino's campaign in the remote province of Antique, was sitting on the lawn in front of the capital building, taking a break from a debate over contested votes in his region, when a white vehicle pulled into the driveway.
Without warning, a man in a black knit ski mask started shooting. Javier ran. Zigzagging across the building's broad concrete plaza, he tried to escape the relentless barrage of bullets. At least one hit its mark. Javier fell into a small fishpond. Somehow, the fleeing man struggled to his feet and staggered across the street. By this time, other gunmen had begun to close in. Two approached from the left. Another, brandishing a.45 pistol, appeared in front of a warehouse. Javier tried to hide behind an outhouse door, but the masked killer finished him off with a burst of gunfire. The toilet was owned by Leon Pe; the News Today at the 20th anniversary reported, "As the prostrated corpse of Javier lied on the damp cement of the comfort room, another gunman, hankering for a kill, unmasked himself and made a shrill outcry - "Can you recognize me? Stand up and fight!" Whereupon, he fired the coup de grace directed at the head..." His body had 24 bullet wounds. Time reported that many in Javier's camp blamed Arturo Pacificador for the assassination: Opposition leaders and many residents claimed they knew, behind the killing: Arturo Pacificador, a Marcos crony, assistant majority floor leader in the National Assembly.
Pacificador has operated like a warlord in Antique, wielding political patronage with his connections in the ruling party and the power he has amassed under Marcos.... He won his seat in the National Assembly by beating Javier in one of the most controversial campaigns of the 1984 election. On the eve of the voting, seven Javier supporters were killed during a shoot-out with Pacificador and his followers; the Ministry of Justice never released its findings. On the day of his burial in San Jose de Buenavista, thousands of mourners followed his funeral procession to the cemetery wearing yellow shirts with yellow bands tied to their wrists, they played his favorite song, "The Impossible Dream," during the procession to the cemetery. Thousands of Antiquenos there showed their anger and sorrow by crying "Justice for Evelio! We love you!" on the day of his death. In Feb 1986 Evelio Javier was assassinated after which his family filed charges against his political opponent, Arturo Pacifado

Philippine Daily Inquirer
The Philippine Daily Inquirer, popularly known as the Inquirer, is an English-language newspaper in the Philippines. Founded in 1985, it is regarded as the Philippines' newspaper of record; the Philippine Daily Inquirer was a daily newspaper founded on 9 December 1985 by publisher Eugenia Apóstol, columnist Max Solivén, together with Betty Go-Belmonte during the last days of the regime of the Philippine dictator, Ferdinand Marcos, becoming one of the first private newspapers to be established under the Marcos regime. The Inquirer succeeded the weekly Philippine Inquirer, created in 1985 by Apostol to cover the trial of 25 soldiers accused of complicity in the murder of opposition leader Benigno Aquino, Jr. at the Manila International Airport on 21 August 1983. Apostol published the Mr & Ms Special Edition, a weekly tabloid opposed to the Marcos regime; as the successor to the previous Mr. and Mrs. Special Edition and the weekly Philippine Inquirer, it was founded on a budget of P1 million and enjoyed a daily circulation of 30,000 in its early days.
The new daily was housed in the dilapidated one-story Star Building on 13th and Railroad streets in Port Area, Manila. It was put out by 40 editors, correspondents and other editorial employees working in a 100 square meter newsroom. Columnist Louie Beltran was named its editor-in-chief; the newspaper was instrumental in documenting the campaign of Corazón Aquino during the 1986 presidential elections and, in turn, the 1986 People Power Revolution. Its slogan, Balanced News, Fearless Views, was incorporated to the newspaper in January 1986 after a slogan-making contest held during the first month of the Inquirer's existence. On July 1986, questions about finances and a divergence of priorities caused a rift among the founders which led Belmonte and Art Borjal's split from the Inquirer to establish The Philippine STAR; as Belmonte owned the Star Building where the Inquirer was headquartered, the newspaper amicably transferred to the Soliven-owned BF Condominium in Aduana Street, Intramuros. In February 1987, Federico D. Pascual, former assistant managing editor of the Daily Express, was named executive editor of Inquirer and was appointed editor-in-chief two years later.
It was during his term in 1990 that the Inquirer took the lead from the Manila Bulletin to become the Philippines' largest newspaper in terms of circulation. However, on July 1990, the Inquirer headquarters in Intramuros was damaged by an earthquake. On 5 January 1991, the newspaper transferred to the YIC building along United Nations Avenue and Romualdez Street in Malate. Inquirer's longest-serving and first woman editor-in-chief, the late Letty Jimenez-Magsanoc, was appointed on June 14, 1991, she was a former columnist and editor of the "Panorama" Sunday magazine of Bulletin Today, sacked for writing articles poking fun at Marcos. She edited Ms Special Edition until the fall of the Marcos regime, she is the first editor in chief of Sunday Inquirer Magazine. Under her term, in 1995, the Inquirer moved to its current headquarters in Makati City after transferring headquarters four times. During the administration of president Joseph Estrada, he criticized the Inquirer for "bias and fabrication" against him—this charge to the newspaper was denied.
In 1999, several government organizations, pro-Estrada businesses, movie producers pulled their advertisements from the Inquirer in a boycott that lasted for five months. The presidential palace was implicated in the advertising boycott, denounced by publisher Isagani Yambot as an attack on the freedom of the press. In 2007, according to the survey conducted by AGB Nielsen, the Inquirer is the most read newspaper in the Philippines; the Manila Bulletin and the Philippine Star followed as the second and the third most read papers, respectively. Magsanoc died on December 2015 at the St. Luke's Medical Center in Taguig City. A month after her death, Jimenez-Magsanoc was recognized as the Filipino of the Year 2015 by the Inquirer. In February 2, 2016, the Inquirer appointed its managing editor Jose Ma. Nolasco as the executive editor, the new top position of the newspaper, replacing the traditional "editor in chief" position that used by Inquirer for more than three decades. Nolasco was the managing editor of PDI for 24 years, he is part of the first batch of reporters of Inquirer when the paper started its publication in 1985.
On October 6, 2016, the Inquirer launched a "rethink" of its print and digital presence by overhauling its newspaper design and website, Inquirer.net and the launch of "My Inquirer" which converged the platforms of Inquirer in print, smartphone and smartwatch. The redesign was done in collaboration with Dr. Mario Garcia of Garcia Media; the Philippine Daily Inquirer annually names a Filipino of the Year, honoring a Filipino who has made the most positive impact on the life of the nation.

Alma mater is an allegorical Latin phrase for a university, school, or college that one attended. In US usage it can mean the school from which one graduated; the phrase is variously translated as "nourishing mother", "nursing mother", or "fostering mother", suggesting that a school provides intellectual nourishment to its students. Fine arts will depict educational institutions using a robed woman as a visual metaphor. Before its current usage, alma mater was an honorific title for various Latin mother goddesses Ceres or Cybele, in Catholicism for the Virgin Mary, it entered academic usage when the University of Bologna adopted the motto Alma Mater Studiorum, which describes its heritage as the oldest operating university in the Western world. It is related to alumnus, a term used for a university graduate that means a "nursling" or "one, nourished". Although alma was a common epithet for Ceres, Cybele and other mother goddesses, it was not used in conjunction with mater in classical Latin. In the Oxford Latin Dictionary, the phrase is attributed to Lucretius' De rerum natura, where it is used as an epithet to describe an earth goddess: After the fall of Rome, the term came into Christian liturgical usage in association with the Virgin Mary.
"Alma Redemptoris Mater" is a well-known 11th century antiphon devoted to Mary. The earliest documented use of the term to refer to a university in an English-speaking country is in 1600, when the University of Cambridge printer, John Legate, began using an emblem for the university's press; the device's first-known appearance is on the title-page of William Perkins' A Golden Chain, where the Latin phrase Alma Mater Cantabrigia is inscribed on a pedestal bearing a nude, lactating woman wearing a mural crown. In English etymological reference works, the first university-related usage is cited in 1710, when an academic mother figure is mentioned in a remembrance of Henry More by Richard Ward. Many historic European universities have adopted Alma Mater as part of the Latin translation of their official name; the University of Bologna Latin name, Alma Mater Studiorum, refers to its status as the oldest continuously operating university in the world. Other European universities, such as the Alma Mater Lipsiensis in Leipzig, Germany, or Alma Mater Jagiellonica, have used the expression in conjunction with geographical or foundational characteristics.
At least one, the Alma Mater Europaea in Salzburg, Austria, an international university founded by the European Academy of Sciences and Arts in 2010, uses the term as its official name. In the United States, the College of William & Mary in Williamsburg, has been called the "Alma Mater of the Nation" because of its ties to the country's founding. At Queen's University in Kingston and the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, British Columbia, the main student government is known as the Alma Mater Society; the ancient Roman world had many statues of the Alma Mater, some still extant. Modern sculptures are found in prominent locations on several American university campuses. For example, in the United States: there is a well-known bronze statue of Alma Mater by Daniel Chester French situated on the steps of Columbia University's Low Library. An altarpiece mural in Yale University's Sterling Memorial Library, painted in 1932 by Eugene Savage, depicts the Alma Mater as a bearer of light and truth, standing in the midst of the personified arts and sciences.
Outside the United States, there is an Alma Mater sculpture on the steps of the monumental entrance to the Universidad de La Habana, in Havana, Cuba. The statue was cast in 1919 by Mario Korbel, with Feliciana Villalón Wilson as the inspiration for Alma Mater, it was installed in its current location in 1927, at the direction of architect Raul Otero.

P. the third Archbishop of Manila. He came to the Philippines with the first Dominican mission in 1587, he went on to become bishop of Nueva Segovia, was promoted archbishop of Manila in 1601. Upon his death in July 1605, Benavides bequeathed his library and personal property worth 1,500 pesos to be used as the seed fund for the establishment of an institution of higher learning. Fr. Bernardo de Santa Catalina carried out Benavides's wishes and was able to secure a building near the Dominican church and convent in Intramuros for the College. In 1609, permission to open the College was requested from King Philip III of Spain, which only reached Manila in 1611. On April 28, 1611, notary Juan Illian witnessed the signing of the act of foundation by Baltasar Fort, OP, Bernardo Navarro, OP, Francisco Minayo, OP. Fort, appointed that year to the post of Father Provincial, became the rector in 1619; the Colegio de Nuestra Señora del Santísimo Rosario, was established on April 28, 1611, from the Benavides's library.
Renamed Colegio de Santo Tomas, it was elevated by Pope Innocent X to a university on November 20, 1645 in his brief, In Supreminenti. This makes the institution the first in the islands to be formally elevated to the status of university, its complete name is The Pontifical and Royal University of Santo Tomas, The Catholic University of the Philippines. It was given the title "Royal," by King Charles III of Spain in 1785; this makes the UST the first and only formally declared royal and pontifical university in the Philippines. The university was located within the walled city of Intramuros in Manila, it was started by the Spanish Archbishop of Manila in the early 17th century as a seminary for aspiring young priests, taking its name and inspiration from Saint Thomas Aquinas, a Dominican theologian. The first courses offered by the Colegio de Santo Tomas were canon law, philosophy, grammar, the arts, civil law. In 1871, it began offering degrees in the first in colonized Asia. At the beginning of the 20th century, with the growing student population, the Dominicans were given a 21.5 hectare land at the Sulucan Hills in Sampaloc and built its 215,000 square meter campus there in 1927 with the inauguration of its Main Building.
That year, it began accepting female enrollees. In the last four decades, the university grew into a full-fledged institution of higher learning, conferring degrees in law and various academic letters; the university has graduated Philippine national heroes and saints. The Medicine and Civil Law courses were retained in Intramuros at that time. During World War II, the Japanese forces converted the Sampaloc campus into an internment camp for enemy aliens Americans, living in the Philippines; the original Intramuros campus was destroyed in 1944 by an arson created by the Japanese Kempeitai. More than 4,000 foreigners survived under difficult conditions in the internment camp for 37 months from January 1942 until February 1945 when the camp was liberated by American soldiers. Since its establishment in 1611, the University's academic life was interrupted only twice: from 1898 to 1899, during the Philippine Revolution against Spain, from 1942 to 1945, during the Japanese occupation of the country.
