VI. #59-69. Basahin ang sumusunod na talambuhay.
Si Benigno Simeon Aquino, Jr., mas kilala bilang Ninoy Aquino o Benigno S. Aquino, Jr., ay isang Pilipinong senador na naging pangunahing kritiko ni Pangulong Ferdinand Marcos. Pinatay siya sa Paliparang Pandaigdig ng Maynila (na matapos ay ipinangalang Paliparang Pandaigdig ng Ninoy Aquino bilang parangal sa kanya) pagkauwi niya mula sa Estados Unidos, kung saan siya ipinatapon. Ang kanyang pagkamatay ang naging sanhi ng pagka-Pangulo ng kanyang maybahay, si Corazon Aquino, na pumalit sa 20-taong rehimeng Marcos. Ayon sa mga testigo, ang mga sundalong nag hatid sa kanya pababa ng eroplano ay may mga kinalaman sa kanyang pagkamatay. May mahigit dalawang milyon na sumama sa prusisyon para ihatid si Aquino sa kanyang huling hantungan. Ang mga naging sangkot sa kanyang pagkamatay ay napalaya na noong 2007 na tinutulan naman ng kanyang anak na si Noynoy Aquino. At siya ay isa rin sa mga bayani ng Pilipinas. Ang kanyang bantayog ay makikita sa Lungsod ng Makati.
Si Ninoy ay ipinanganak noong ika-27 ng Nobyembre, 1932. Siya ay anak ng dating Assemblyman Benigno S. Aquino, Sr. at Aurora Aquino-Aquino ng Tarlac. Si
Pahina 5Ninoy ay 17 taong gulang lamang ng matanyag sa pagiging isang korespondent ng
digmaan sa Korea. Naging pinakabatang nahalal na punong-bayan sa Concepcion,
Tarlac. Siya rin ay naging katidong teknikal ng mga pangulong sina Ramon Magsaysay
at Carlos P. Garcia. Noong panahon ng panunungkulan ni Diosdado Macapagal si
Ninoy ay umanib sa Partido Liberal. Siya ang naging pangkalahatang kalihim ng
partido na naging daan upang siya ay mahalal na pinakabatang senador noong 1967.
Nang ideklara ang Batas Militar (Martial Law), si Ninoy ay dinakip at nakulong ng
maraming taon. Siya ay nagkaroon ng sakit sa puso at pinahintulutan naman na
maoperahan sa Estados Unidos. Dahil sa pagnanasang maglingkod sa bayan at
sambayanang Pilipino, bumalik si Ninoy sa Pilipinas. Subalit sa kanyang pagbabalik ay
hindi na niya naisakatuparan ang kanyang mga adhikain sapagkat pagtuntong pa lang
niya sa paliparan ng MIA, siya ay binaril at nalugmok sa Tarmac. Ang kanyang
pagkamatay noong Agosto 21, 1983 ang siyang nagmulat at gumising sa natutulog na
damdamin ng taong-bayan.
Nag-alsa ang milyung-milyong Pilipino at ito ay tinaguriang "People Power."
Napatalsik ang dating Pangulong Ferdinand Marcos at iniluklok ang maybahay ni Ninoy
na si Corazon Aquino bilang pangulo ng bansa.

ALAMAT NG ROSAS
Noong araw ay may isang magandang dalagang nagngangalang “Rosa,” na balita sa kanyang angking kagandahan, kayumian, at kabaitan. Maraming nangangayupapa sa kanyang kagandahan. Ngunit ni isa sa mga ito ay hindi niya mapusuan.
Dahil ang gusto ni Rosa ay ang maglingkod sa Panginoon at sa pagtulong sa mga nangangailangan ng kanyang tulong. Ngunit si Cristobal, isang mahigpit niyang mangingibig, ay di makapapayag na di mapasakanya ang dalaga, at ito’y nagtangkang agawin si Rosa at dinala ito sa hardin.
Ngunit nananalangin si Rosa sa Panginoon at noon di’y siya’y naging bangkay. Sa takot ni Cristobal ay ibinaon niya ang dalaga sa bakuran nito at saka siya lumayo sa pook na iyon upang di na magbalik kailanman.
Mula noon ay hindi na nakita ng mga taga roon si Rosa. Sa halip, sa bakuran nito ay may isang halamang tumubo na may bulaklak ngunit paghawak sa tangkay nito ay mapapasigaw ka dahil sa talas ng tinik ng halamang hinahawakan. Dahil niloob ito ng Panginoon na gawing bulaklak si Rosa na ang tangkay ay may mga tinik na tagapangalaga rito upang di-pagnasaang pupulin lamang ng sinuman.

The Cow and the CarabaoBy Concordia Logue, Saturnina Femen, Regina Condez, and Miriam Capili
A muddy Carabao slowly made its way to a grassy field. A Cow was munching grass in a nearby meadow.
“Look how dirty you are, friend Carabao,” said the Cow. “You expect me to look clean after a day’s work in the muddy fields? You should be ashamed of yourself instead, you lazy bone. While I work you do nothing but eat and sleep the whole day. Of course your body will be soiled like mine”.
You ought to be thankful for being useful in the field,” the cow said, “You will live much longer than me”.
“What do you mean by that?” asked the Carabao.“Our master wants you to live as long as possible,” explained the cow. “You are
needed to plow and harrow the fields. On the other hand, I eat and rest with little or nothing to do so I grow big and fat. Our master will then sell me to the butcher to be slaughtered. All of us have our own destinies to fulfill. So you see, it is useless to complain about life.
The Carabao heard what the Cow said. He knew why the farmer took good care of him. He was a great help to his work in the fileds.
“Poor Cow,” said the Carabao. I “have always envied you for leading an easy life. Now, I do not envy you anymore.

Hunters may be further subdivided into four groups according to the way they hunt for food. Those spiders who hunt for food by jumping are called spiders. Those who wait for their food and then attack are called crab spiders. Those spiders who have behave like wolves are called wolf spiders. An example of this is the tarantula. Lastly, there are spiders
who hunt for fish and frogs on the surface of ponds and streams. These are called fisher spiders.
