A public forum with the Nominees for the Dean position was held last October 29 at the UP College of Dentistry Auditorium.  The UPM Administration officers led by Chancellor Arcadio organized this event as part of the Dean Selection process.  The nominees (Dr. Angie Atienza, Dr. Danny Magtanong, Dr. Vic Medina and Dr. Heherson Tumang) were all given a few minutes to present their goals, programs, projects and their vision for the college if they would be appointed to serve as Dean for the next 3 years.  They were also asked to answer some questions prepared by the Chancellor's office on key issues facing the College of Dentistry.  Also present in the event were the faculty members, representatives of the UP Dental Alumni Association, students, non-academic personnel and the incumbent dean, Dr. Elizabeth De Castro.

Here's a good topic discussing how organizations can employ free online social networking tools as a communication tool for their community and professional organizations. News updates and announcements can be posted and easily be disseminated to members of their group/s in any part of the world as long as there is internet access. Social networking tools has become very popular worldwide and maybe it's high time that we take advantage of its practical uses.

Facebook As a Communication Tool For Community Organizations
By Crystal Coleman

Small community organizations, such as parent committees, book clubs, sports associations, or service groups struggle to communicate effectively with their members and the communities surrounding them.
  • Limited resources make newspaper or other form of print marketing cost restrictive.
  • Telephone communication can be cumbersome and time consuming.
  • Meetings can be poorly attended or ineffective.
The rise of social networking as a communication medium has implications beyond personal socializing or business networking; it can now be considered a valid tool for community groups. Facebook should be an obvious choice for an organization seeking the benefits of social networking.

On an individual basis, Facebook members will likely have members from their local communities on their friends lists, the audience (or a portion thereof) is already reachable without any ground work; your organization now has an immediately available and concrete audience built-in from the start. New members can easily sign up to Facebook and become part of a network that quickly reproduces itself.

There are multiple ways a message can be shared, two of which being: status updates posted and viewed by friends from personal pages, and through the use of Facebook Pages (formerly Groups). A Page has built-in messaging systems by way of wall posts and a discussion area, in addition to posting features by way of status updates broadcast to all Fans (think group members), and private messages delivered to each Fans' inbox. With the click of a button, the administrators can send an update to the Fans.

To become a Fan is easy; one simply follows a link that the administrators of the page have sent as an invite. Alternatively, individuals can look up a page and become a member by navigating to the website itself. Other useful features of a Facebook Page:
  • Events can be published to a shared calendar
  • Documents can be uploaded for universal group use
  • External links and photos can be shared.
Community organizations struggle to have their message heard, whether it be to their members, or to those within the community. Social networking sites, like Facebook, offer organizations the opportunity to provide universally accessible, clear and dynamic information on events, meetings, fund-raising initiatives, and other group information. The possibilities are virtually endless!

In line with the University of the Philippines Manila's thrust in shifting from commercial/proprietary software to open source, all of us are encouraged to make an effort to understand and learn how to use these software.  Open source software is Free.  One of the most popular of these is the openoffice which is a suite or bundle of software considered as a counterpart of the popular MS Office Suite. This may be directly downloaded from its official site at

Learn more about Open source particularly the OpenOffice by following these download links.

How to Write a Letter With OpenOffice Or NeoOffice Letter Wizard
By Ugur Akinci

In case you don't know, OpenOffice is an amazingly powerful office suite, at least as good as the MS Office suite. It's also free. Search for "OpenOffice" on Google to download it from the OpenOffice site. (Note: if you own a Mac, try NeoOffice. It runs much better on a Mac but basically it's the same suite.)

Select the Text Document option from the OpenOffice menu to display the OO word processor.

This word processor will not write your letters for you automatically but it's got a built-in Letter Wizard to help you get the basic structural elements right.

Select File > Wizards > Letter from the menu to display the Letter Wizard. (Note the Fax, Agenda, Presentation, and Web Page wizards as well!)

Select from one of the following Letter Type options: Business Letter, Formal Personal Letter, Personal Letter.

The first two letters come with three Page Design options: Elegant, Modern, Office.

The Personal Letter comes with the following Page Design options: Bottle, Mail, Marine, Red Line.

Once you select your Letter Type and Page Design Style, you click Next to display the...

Printed Items screen allows you to include (or exclude) the following letter elements: Logo, Return address in envelope window, Subject Line, Salutation, Fold Marks, Complimentary Close, and Footer.

Click Next and you get the...

Recipient and Sender screen allows you to enter the Sender's Address and the Recipient's Address.

Click Next to the...

The Footer screen allows you to type in any footer text you like, with two additional options: you can include page numbers and/or include the footer only on the second and following pages but not on the first page.

Click Next...

The Name and Location screen allows you to attach a name to your template and save it in any file you like on your computer so that you can easily load it up and use it for other letters in the future.

And lastly, after you finish making the right choices for your template, the Letter Wizard asks you how to proceed.

You can then go ahead and create a letter from the template you've just created or make manual changes to the template. You can for example replace all the icons and images in the template with your own custom-designed logos and images, etc.

A perfect letter wizard from a fully-equipped office suite that costs you zilch, zero, nada.

Note: You can open all your MS WORD documents inside OpenOffice without a hitch and when you're done reading or editing them, re-save them as MS Office documents.

I've been using OpenOffice (on Windows and Linux machines) and NeoOffice (on a MacBook) for the last 3 years without any problems whatsoever. (This very article, for example, is written with the NeoOffice word processor.)

Go ahead. Make your day! It might be a very bright one that costs you nothing.
